or equity financing that we complete may contain terms, such as liquidation and other preferences, which are not favorable to us or our stockholders. If we raise additional funds through collaboration or partnership arrangements with third parties, it may be necessary to relinquish valuable rights to our technologies, future revenue streams or product candidates or to grant licenses on terms that may not be favorable to us.

If we are unable to raise additional capital in sufficient amounts or on terms acceptable to us, we will need to curtail and reduce our operations and costs and modify our business strategy which may require us to, among other things:
significantly delay, scale back or discontinue the development or commercialization of one or more of our product candidates or one or more of our other research and development initiatives;
seek collaborators for one or more of our current or future product candidates at an earlier stage than otherwise would be desirable or on terms that are less favorable than might otherwise be available; or
sell or license on unfavorable terms our rights to technologies or product candidates that we otherwise would seek to develop or commercialize ourselves.

Additionally, failure to obtain the necessary capital in a timely manner could require us to seek bankruptcy protection or result in our breach or default under agreements on which our business relies or pursuant to which we obtain valuable rights which could result in, among other things, the potential acceleration of payments thereunder or the termination of such agreements.

These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Consequently, the audit report prepared by our independent registered public accounting firm relating to our Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 found in the 2017 Form 10-K includes a paragraph related to the substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Nasdaq Deficiency Notice

On January 23, 2018, we received (the Notice) from the Nasdaq Capital Market (Nasdaq) that we are not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), as the minimum bid price of our common stock has been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days. On May 24, 2018, the Company implemented a one-for-five reverse split of its issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (the Reverse Stock Split), as authorized at the annual meeting of stockholders on May 23, 2018. The Reverse Stock Split became effective on May 24, 2018 at 5:00 pm and the Company’s common stock began trading on Nasdaq on a post-split basis at the open of business on May 25, 2018. As of a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every five shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock were combined into one share of its common stock, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split resulted in any of the Company’s stockholders owning a fractional share, which was rounded up to the next highest whole share. In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, there was no change in the nominal par value per share of $0.001. The Reverse Stock Split was effectuated in order to increase the per share trading price of the Company’s common stock to satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on Nasdaq. On June 11, 2018, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq notifying the Company that the closing bid price for the Company's common stock had been at $1.00 per share or greater for a minimum of ten consecutive business days and accordingly, the Company had regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). All share and per share amounts of common stock, options and warrants in the accompanying financial statements and related footnotes, have been restated for all periods to give retroactive effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Accordingly, the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Stockholders’ Equity reflects the impact of the Reverse Stock Split by reclassifying from “Common Stock” to “Additional paid-in capital” an amount equal to the par value of the decreased shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split.
Nasdaq Equity Requirement

Nasdaq has the authority, pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), to delist our common stock if our stockholders’ equity falls below $2.5 million. As of June 30, 2018, our stockholders’ equity was approximately $9.4 million. If our stockholders’ equity is hereafter reduced below $2.5 million as a result of operating losses or for other reasons, we will fail to meet Nasdaq’s stockholders’ equity requirement. If that occurs, or if we are unable to demonstrate to Nasdaq’s satisfaction that we will be able to sustain compliance with this requirement, Nasdaq may delist our common stock. In addition, even if we regain technical compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement, we will have to continue to meet other objective and subjective listing requirements to continue to be listed on Nasdaq, including the requirement that our common stock continues to trade above $1.00. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, we incurred a net loss of approximately $5.8 million and used approximately $7.5 million in operating activities and had an accumulated deficit of $184.6 million as of June 30, 2018.
