Note 3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718).” ASU 2018-07 simplifies the accounting for nonemployee share-based payment transactions. This ASU is effective for public entities for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company has evaluated the potential impact of this guidance and does not believe that it will have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-11, “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Part 1 - Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features and Part 2 - Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with Scope Exception”. Part 1 of ASU No. 2017-11 addresses the complexity of accounting for certain financial instruments with down round features. Down round features are features of certain equity-linked instruments (or embedded features) that result in the strike price being reduced on the basis of the pricing of future equity offerings. Current accounting guidance creates cost and complexity for entities that issue financial instruments (such as warrants and convertible instruments) with down round features that require fair value measurement of the entire instrument or conversion option. Part II of ASU No. 2017-11 addresses the difficulty of navigating Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, because of the existence of extensive pending content in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification®. This pending content is the result of the indefinite deferral of accounting requirements about mandatorily redeemable financial instruments of certain nonpublic entities and certain mandatorily redeemable noncontrolling interests. For public business entities, the amendments in Part I of this update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The amendments in Part II of this update do not require any transition guidance because those amendments do not have an accounting effect. The Company currently does not have any outstanding financial instruments with down round provisions, and therefore the impact of the adoption of this standard on its Consolidated Financial Statements, will not be material.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). Under the new guidance, lessees (including lessees under both leases classified as finance leases, which are to be classified based on criteria similar to that applicable to capital leases under current guidance, and leases classified as operating leases) will recognize a right-to-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet, initially measured as the present value of lease payments under the lease. Under current guidance, operating leases are not recognized on the balance sheet. The standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. The new standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition approach for leases with an option to elect a package of practical expedients. Further, companies can elect to apply the transition approach either for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements or those existing at, or entered into after, the adoption date. While the Company is currently assessing the full impact this ASU will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company believes the primary impact upon adoption will be the recognition, on a discounted basis, of its minimum commitments under the current noncancelable operating lease, as amended, for its Exton, PA facility, resulting in the recording of right of use assets and lease obligations. The Company does not anticipate any other material impacts to its Consolidated Financial Statements.
Note 4. Convertible Notes

2016 Private Placement

In September 2016, the Company issued an aggregate of $18,087,500 in principal of convertible promissory notes (each, a Note and collectively, the Notes) and accompanying warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,205,840 shares of the Company’s common stock (each a Warrant and collectively, the Warrants) in a private placement to institutional and accredited investors (each an Investor and collectively, the Investors).     

The Notes bear interest at four percent (4%) per annum. Interest is earned daily and compounded quarterly and, at the election of the Company at the beginning of each quarter, shall accrue or be paid in cash. If the Company elects to have interest accrue, such interest will not be added to the principal amount of the Notes but such interest shall be subject to additional interest at the rate of four percent (4%) per annum, compounded quarterly, and shall be due and payable upon the earliest of the conversion of the Notes, exercise of the Put Right, exercise of the Prepayment Right or the Maturity Date (in each case, as
