Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (the “Company”) manufactures high water content, electron beam cross-linked, aqueous polymer hydrogels, or gels, used for wound care, medical diagnostics, transdermal drug delivery and cosmetics. The Company believes that it is one of the leading manufacturers of high performance gels in the United States. The Company specializes in custom gels by capitalizing on proprietary manufacturing technologies. The Company has, historically, served as a contract manufacturer, supplying its gels to third parties who incorporate them into their own products.
On May 7, 2018, the Company completed its previously announced Asset Sale Transaction (the “AST”) with Celularity, Inc. (“Celularity”), pursuant to which the Company sold substantially all of its assets to Celularity, including certain assets comprising its MIST, Biovance and Interfyl Product Lines (the “Purchased Assets”). As consideration for the Purchased Assets, Celularity paid $29.0 million to the Company in cash. No debt or significant liabilities were assumed by Celularity in the AST. Under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”), the Company retained certain specified assets, including, among other things, cash, accounts receivable, and its hydrogel contract manufacturing business, including its SilverSeal and Hydress product lines. Approximately $14.8 million of the consideration received from Celularity was used to pay down in full all outstanding debt and related costs owed to Perceptive Credit Holdings LP (“Perceptive”).
The transactions contemplated by the APA were approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock on April 27, 2018.
The Company’s operations sold under the APA have been reclassified to discontinued operations in the second quarter of 2018, when the shareholders of the Company approved the sale. The AST was completed on May 7, 2018.
Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this report are unaudited. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2018 and results of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. While management believes that the disclosures presented are adequate to make the information not misleading, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in the Company’s latest year-end financial statements, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 Annual Report”). The results of the Company’s operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for any other interim period or for the full year.
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, AquaMed Technologies, Inc. All significant inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.
Certain amounts in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassifications did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations as previously reported.
In addition to the aforementioned AST with Celularity, effective August 31, 2017 the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“the Argentum Purchase Agreement”) with Argentum Medical, LLC. (“Argentum”) whereby the Company agreed to sell to Argentum all of the Company’s rights, including (i) all distribution rights, exclusivity rights, intellectual property rights and marketing rights to the TheraBond product line and (ii) the unsold inventory of TheraBond products and work in process previously purchased by the Company in existence as of the closing, which occurred upon execution and delivery of the Argentum Purchase Agreement. In consideration for the sale of the TheraBond product line and the unsold TheraBond inventory to Argentum by the Company, Argentum agreed to pay (i) $3.6 million for the TheraBond product line and certain other agreements between the parties and (ii) up to $0.1 million for the unsold TheraBond inventory upon the Company’s completion of its obligations to deliver all remaining and qualifying unsold TheraBond inventory, as specified in the Argentum Purchase Agreement. Of the $3.6 million of consideration, $0.3 million was initially deposited in an indemnity escrow account under standard terms and conditions. This amount is classified under current assets of discontinued operations on the Company’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2017. As of June 30, 2018, $0.1 million was paid from the escrow, and $0.2 million remains in the indemnity escrow account under standard terms and conditions; classified under current assets of discontinued operations on the Company’s balance sheet.

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates
The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in Note 2 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the 2017 Annual Report. Since the date of the 2017 Annual Report, there have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies. The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. These estimates and assumptions include valuing equity securities and derivative financial instruments issued in financing transactions, allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory reserves, deferred taxes and related valuation allowances. Actual results could differ from the estimates.
Recent Accounting Principles
In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “CompensationStock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting”. The amendments in this update is to maintain or improve the usefulness of the information provided to the users of financial statements while reducing cost and complexity in financial reporting. The areas for simplification in this Update involve several aspects of the accounting for nonemployee share-based payment transactions resulting from expanding the scope of Topic 718, to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. Some of the areas for simplification apply only to nonpublic entities. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect that this guidance will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-02, “Income StatementReporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”. The amendments in this Update allow a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Consequently, the amendments eliminate the stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and will improve the usefulness of information reported to financial statement users. However, because the amendments only relate to the reclassification of the income tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the underlying guidance that requires that the effect of a change in tax laws or rates be included in income from continuing operations is not affected. The amendments in this Update also require certain disclosures about stranded tax effects. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect that this guidance will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
