|Substantial Doubt about Going Concern [Text Block]||
The Company’s financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applicable to a going concern that contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.
The Company has experienced recurring losses since its inception. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company incurred a net loss of $8.4 million, utilized $9.8 million in cash from operations and had an accumulated deficit of $158.4 million. Prior to closing of the APA on May 7, 2018, these factors raised substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. However, upon closing the APA, the Company received gross proceeds of $29.0 million and part of the proceeds, $14.8 million, were utilized to satisfy, in full, its obligations under the Credit Agreement and Guaranty (the “CAG”) with Perceptive. As of December 31, 2018, the Company had a cash balance of approximately $8.9 million.
Given the Company’s current cash position and reduced cash burn, the Company believes substantial doubt has been mitigated and it has sufficient resources to support its planned operations for a year from the date these financial statements are issued.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
