NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. Description of Business, Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (“Alliqua” or 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.

 

Recent Developments

 

Merger Agreement with TO Pharmaceuticals, LLC.

 

On November 27, 2018, AquaMed Technologies, Inc. (“AquaMed”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alliqua, AQ TOP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of AquaMed , and TO Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TOP”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “TOP Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the TOP Merger Agreement, AquaMed will merge with and into TOP, with TOP becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of AquaMed and the surviving company of the merger (the “TOP Merger”). The TOP Merger is intended to qualify for federal income tax purposes as a tax-free contribution under the provisions of Section 351(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

 

The TOP Merger will occur after the consummation by Alliqua of the following steps:

 

(1) Pursuant to an Asset Contribution and Separation Agreement to be entered into by and between Alliqua and AquaMed (the “Separation Agreement”) prior to consummation of the TOP Merger, Alliqua will transfer certain assets and liabilities utilized primarily in connection with its custom hydrogels contract manufacturing business to AquaMed (the “Separation”),

 

(2) AquaMed will issue a to be determined number of shares of common stock to Alliqua in consideration of the contribution of assets pursuant to the Separation Agreement (the “Distribution Consideration”),

 

(3) Alliqua will distribute to its stockholders all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of AquaMed by way of a pro rata dividend (the “Distribution”), and

 

(4) Alliqua will consummate the previously announced reverse merger transaction with Adynxx, Inc. (“Adynxx”), pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, dated as of October 11, 2018, by and among Alliqua, Embark Merger Sub, Inc. and Adynxx.

 

At the effective time of the TOP Merger, all of the outstanding membership units of TOP will be converted into the right to receive, in the aggregate, merger consideration consisting of shares of AquaMed common stock. Immediately after the effective time of the TOP Merger and consummation of the Private Placement (as defined below), before giving effect to any fees payable in equity to financial advisors or other intermediaries, the current members of TOP and the third-party investors that participate in the Private Placement are expected to hold approximately 90% of the total number of shares of AquaMed common stock outstanding (on a fully diluted basis).

 

The consummation of the TOP Merger is subject to certain customary and other conditions, including (i) the completion of the Separation and the Distribution, (ii) the effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-1 filed with the SEC with respect to, and the approval for listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market of, the shares of AquaMed common stock to be issued in the Distribution and the TOP Merger, (iii) receipt of binding commitments from third-party investors to consummate a private placement of AquaMed’s common stock in a minimum aggregate amount of $10 million immediately prior to the effective time of the TOP Merger (the “Private Placement”) (iv) the accuracy of the parties’ representations and warranties and the performance of their respective covenants contained in the TOP Merger Agreement, and (v) receipt of an independent third-party valuation of the AquaMed common stock to be issued in the Distribution.

 

The TOP Merger Agreement contains customary and other representations, warranties and covenants, including a covenant for AquaMed to use (i) commercially reasonable efforts to consummate and make effective the Separation and payment of the Distribution Consideration contemplated by the Distribution Agreement in accordance with its terms and (ii) reasonable best efforts to consummate the Private Placement.

 

Merger Agreement with Adynxx

 

On October 11, 2018, the Company, Embark Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), and Adynxx, Inc., a privately-held Delaware corporation (“Adynxx”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Adynxx Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into Adynxx, with Adynxx becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and the surviving corporation of the merger (the “Adynxx Merger”). Subject to the terms and conditions of the Adynxx Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Adynxx Merger (the “Effective Time”), (a) each outstanding share of Adynxx common stock, on an as-converted basis taking into consideration all outstanding common stock, preferred stock, restricted stock and all other securities convertible or exercisable for Adynxx common stock, will be converted into the right to receive the number of shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Company Common Stock”) equal to the exchange ratio described below; (b) each outstanding Adynxx stock option that has not previously been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by the Company; and (c) each outstanding warrant to acquire Adynxx capital stock that has not previously been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by the Company.

Under the exchange ratio formula in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, as of immediately after the Adynxx Merger, but excluding the effect of certain financings (as further described in the Adynxx Merger Agreement), the former Adynxx securityholders are expected to own approximately 86% of the aggregate number of shares of the Company Common Stock issued and outstanding following the consummation of the Adynxx Merger (the “Post-Closing Shares”), and the stockholders of the Company as of immediately prior to the Adynxx Merger are expected to own approximately 14% of the aggregate number of Post-Closing Shares. This exchange ratio will be fixed immediately prior to the Effective Time to reflect the Company’s and Adynxx’s equity capitalization as of immediately prior to such time. In addition, to the extent Adynxx consummates a Permitted Financing, as specifically defined in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, in excess of $10.0 million dollars prior to the Effective Time, the exchange ratio may be further adjusted in a manner that would reduce the percentage of the aggregate number of Post-Closing Shares held by stockholders of the Company as of immediately prior to the Adynxx Merger.

 

Immediately following the Adynxx Merger, the name of the Company will be changed from “Alliqua BioMedical, Inc.” to “Adynxx, Inc.” At the Effective Time, the Adynxx Merger Agreement contemplates that the Board of Directors of the Company will consist of such directors selected by Adynxx, with the Company having the right to designate one member. The executive officers of the Company immediately after the Effective Time will be designated by Adynxx; the merger will be a change of control and accounted for as a reverse business combination whereby Adynxx will be deemed the accounting acquiror.

 

The Adynxx Merger Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants made by the Company and Adynxx, including covenants relating to obtaining the requisite approvals of the stockholders of the Company and Adynxx, indemnification of directors and officers, and the Company’s and Adynxx’s conduct of their respective businesses between the date of signing the Adynxx Merger Agreement and the closing of the Adynxx Merger. Consummation of the Adynxx Merger is subject to certain closing conditions, including, among other things, approval by the stockholders of the Company and Adynxx. The Adynxx Merger Agreement contains certain termination rights for both the Company and Adynxx, and further provides that, upon termination of the Adynxx Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, the Company or Adynxx, as applicable, may be required to pay the other party a termination fee of $0.249 million.

 

The Adynxx Merger Agreement contemplates that the Company will also seek approval from its stockholders to effect a reverse stock split, if applicable, with the split ratio to be mutually agreed to by the Company and Adynxx within the range approved by the Company’s stockholders immediately prior to the Effective Time. In addition, the Adynxx Merger Agreement requires the Company to use commercially reasonable efforts to consummate a spin-off of its hydrogel contract manufacturing business prior to the closing of the Adynxx Merger.

 

The transactions contemplated by the Adynxx Merger Agreement were approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of issued and outstanding shares of our common stock on April 8, 2019. In addition to the receipt of our approval of our stockholders, each party’s obligation to consummate the Adynxx Merger is conditioned upon certain other customary closing conditions.

 

The Company’s operations contemplated under the Adynxx Merger Agreement and TOP Merger Agreement are classified as Held for Use.

 

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 March 31, 2019 and results of operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. 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, 2018 (the “2018 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.

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the 2018 Annual Report. Since the date of the 2018 Annual Report, there have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies, except those noted below. 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.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued a new standard related to leases to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by requiring the recognition of operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. Most prominent among the changes in the standard is the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases. Under the standard, disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The Company is also required to recognize and measure new leases at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment in the period of adoption using a modified retrospective approach, with certain practical expedients available.

 

9  

 

 

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”) effective January 1, 2019 and elected to apply the available practical expedients and implemented internal controls and key system functionality to enable the preparation of financial information on adoption. ASC 842 requires the Company to make significant judgments and estimates. As a result, the Company implemented changes to our internal controls related to lease evaluation for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These changes include updated accounting policies affected by ASC 842 as well as redesigned internal controls over financial reporting related to ASC 842 implementation. Additionally, the Company has expanded data gathering procedures to comply with the additional disclosure requirements and ongoing contract review requirements. The standard had an impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets but did not have an impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations or condensed consolidated statements of cash flows upon adoption. The most significant impact was the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities for operating leases, while the Company’s accounting for finance leases remained substantially unchanged. The adoption of ASC 842 did not have a material impact in the current year and prior year comparative periods and as a result, a cumulative-effect adjustment was not required.

 

2.

Revenue Recognition

 

Disaggregation of Revenue

 

The Company recognizes revenue predominately from contract manufacturing and recognizes an immaterial amount from products. Revenue from both products and contract manufacturing is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer.

 

As of March 31, 2019, or December 31, 2018, the Company did not have any contract assets or contract liabilities from contracts with customers. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, there was no revenue recognized from performance obligations satisfied (or partially satisfied) in previous periods. As of March 31, 2019, there were no remaining performance obligations that the Company had not satisfied.

 

3. Net Loss Per Common Share

 

Basic loss per share data for each period presented is computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each such period. Diluted loss per share data is computed using the weighted-average number of common and dilutive common-equivalent shares outstanding during each period. Dilutive common-equivalent shares consist of: (a) shares that would be issued upon the exercise of stock options and warrants, computed using the treasury stock method; and (b) shares of non-vested restricted stock.

 

The following securities are excluded from the calculation of weighted average dilutive common shares because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive:

 

    As of March 31,  
    2019     2018  
Stock options     348,087       722,446  
Warrants     276,478       471,070  
Non-vested restricted stock     20,000       193,006  
Total     644,565       1,386,522

4. Accrued Expenses

 

Accrued expenses and other current liabilities consist of the following (in thousands):

 

    March 31,     December 31,  
    2019     2018  
             
Salaries, benefits and incentive compensation   $ 49     $ 108  
Professional fees     124       230  
Other     92       47  
Total accrued expenses and other current liabilities   $ 265     $ 385  

 

5. Commitments and Contingencies

 

License Agreement with Noble Fiber Technologies, LLC

 

On July 15, 2011, the Company entered into a license agreement with Noble Fiber Technologies, LLC, whereby the Company has the exclusive right and license to manufacture and distribute “SilverSeal Hydrogel Wound Dressings” and “SilverSeal Hydrocolloid Wound Dressings”. The license is granted for ten years with an option to be extended for consecutive renewal periods of two years after the initial term. Royalties are to be paid equal to 9.75% of net sales of licensed products. There are no minimum royalties subsequent to 2016. Total royalties, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 were nominal, in connection with this agreement. There was no outstanding payable as of March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, in connection with this agreement.

 

Litigation, Claims and Assessments

 

The Company is subject to periodic lawsuits, investigations and claims that arise in the ordinary course of business. The company is not party to any material litigation as of March 31, 2019.

 

6. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2019, there was no stock-based compensation expense recognized. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company recognized a credit of $80,000 related to stock-based compensation resulting from the forfeiture of certain unvested awards, consisting of expense of $14,000 included in cost of revenues that is offset by a credit of $94,000 which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of March 31, 2019, there is no unrecognized stock-based compensation expense remaining.

7. Related Party

 

In November 2015, the Company entered into a manufacturing supply agreement with a company where a Company director is a member of the Board of Directors. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred costs of approximately $0 and $189,000, respectively, from this vendor. There is nothing included in accounts payable related to this related party as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

8. Fair Value Measurement

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon selling an asset or the price paid to transfer a liability on the measurement date. It focuses on the exit price in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between willing market participants. A three-tier fair value hierarchy is established as a basis for considering such assumptions and for inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair values are as follows:

 

Level 1: Observable prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

 

Level 2: Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities.

 

Warrant Liabilities

 

On March 31, 2019, the Company recomputed the fair value of its warrant liability of outstanding warrants to purchase an aggregate of 210,000 shares of common stock as $291,000 using the Binomial option pricing model (Level 3 inputs) using the following assumptions: expected volatility of 92.82% risk-free rate of 2.21%, expected term of 2.83 years, and expected dividends of 0.00%. The Company recorded a loss on the change in fair value of these warrant liabilities of $135,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Warrants that contain exercise reset provisions and contingent consideration liabilities are Level 3 derivative liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis using pricing models for which at least one significant assumption is unobservable as defined in ASC 820. The fair value of contingent consideration liabilities that are classified as Level 3 were estimated using a discounted cash flow technique with significant inputs that are not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 fair value measurement as defined in ASC 820. The significant inputs in the Level 3 measurement not supported by market activity include the probability assessments of expected future cash flows related to the acquisitions, appropriately discounted considering the uncertainties associated with the obligation, and as calculated in accordance with the terms of the acquisition agreements. The development and determination of the unobservable inputs for Level 3 fair value measurements and the fair value calculations are the responsibility of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and are approved by the Chief Executive Officer.

 

The following table sets forth a summary of the changes in the fair value of Level 3 warrant liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis (in thousands):

 

    Year Ended March 31,  
    2019     2018

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes above.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements,” which include information relating to future events, future financial performance, payment of the Special Dividend, strategies, expectations, competitive environment and regulation. Words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “estimate,” and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results and may not be accurate indications of when such performance or results will actually be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information we have when those statements are made or our good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to:

 

· the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement with Adynxx, Inc. and/or the merger agreement with TO Pharmaceuticals, LLC;

 

· an increase in the amount of costs, fees, expenses and other charges related to the merger agreement with Adynxx, Inc. or the merger agreement with TO Pharmaceuticals, LLC;

 

· the ability to realize the benefits expected to result from the merger transaction with Adynxx, Inc. and/or the merger transaction with TO Pharmaceuticals LLC;

 

· other risks associated with the mergers, including anticipated tax treatment, unforeseen liabilities and future capital expenditures;

 

· risks associated with our ability to identify and realize business opportunities following the mergers;

 

  · inadequate capital;

 

  · risks arising from the diversion of management’s attention from our ongoing business operations;

 

  · the uncertainty regarding the adequacy of our liquidity to complete announced business combinations;

 

  · our ability to obtain reimbursement from third party payers for our products;  

 

  · our ability to obtain regulatory approval of any future products we may develop;

 

  · market acceptance of our future products;

 

  · our plans to make significant additional outlays of working capital before we expect to generate significant revenues and the uncertainty regarding when we will begin to generate significant revenues, if we are able to do so;

 

  · adverse economic conditions and/or intense competition;

 

  · loss of a key customer or supplier;

 

  · entry of new competitors and products;

 

  · adverse federal, state and local government regulation;

 

  · technological obsolescence of our manufacturing operations;

 

  · technical problems with our research and product development;

  

  · price increases for supplies and components; and

 

  · the inability to carry out our business plans.

Overview

 

We manufacture a high-water content, electron beam cross-linked, aqueous polymer hydrogels, or gels, used for wound care, medical diagnostics, transdermal drug delivery and cosmetics. We believe that we are one of the leading manufacturers of high-performance gels in the United States. We specialize in custom gels by capitalizing on proprietary manufacturing technologies. We have historically served as a contract manufacturer, supplying our gels to third parties who incorporate them into their own products. Our contract manufacturing business provides custom hydrogels to the OEM market. 

 

Recent Events

 

Adynxx Merger

 

On October 11, 2018, we, Embark Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary (“Adynxx Merger Sub”), and Adynxx, Inc., a privately-held Delaware corporation (“Adynxx”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “ Adynxx Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, Adynxx Merger Sub will merge with and into Adynxx, with Adynxx becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of us and the surviving corporation of the merger (the “Adynxx Merger”).

 

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Adynxx Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Adynxx Merger (the “Effective Time”), (a) each outstanding share of Adynxx common stock, on an as-converted basis taking into consideration all outstanding common stock, preferred stock, restricted stock and all other securities convertible or exercisable for Adynxx common stock, will be converted into the right to receive the number of shares of our common stock (the “Common Stock”) equal to the exchange ratio described below; (b) each outstanding Adynxx stock option that has not previously been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by us; and (c) each outstanding warrant to acquire Adynxx capital stock that has not previously been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by us.

 

Under the exchange ratio formula in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, as of immediately after the Adynxx Merger, but excluding the effect of certain financings (as further described in the Adynxx Merger Agreement), the former Adynxx securityholders are expected to own approximately 86% of the Post-Closing Shares, and our stockholders as of immediately prior to the Merger are expected to own approximately 14% of the aggregate number of Post-Closing Shares. This exchange ratio will be fixed immediately prior to the Effective Time to reflect our and Adynxx’s equity capitalization as of immediately prior to such time. In addition, to the extent Adynxx consummates a Permitted Financing, as specifically defined in the Adynxx Merger Agreement, in excess of $10 million dollars prior to the Effective Time, the exchange ratio may be further adjusted in a manner that would reduce the percentage of the aggregate number of Post-Closing Shares held by ours stockholders as of immediately prior to the Adynxx Merger.

 

Immediately following the Adynxx Merger, the name of the Company will be changed from “Alliqua BioMedical, Inc.” to “Adynxx, Inc.” At the Effective Time, the Adynxx Merger Agreement contemplates that the Board of Directors of the Company will consist of such directors selected by Adynxx; we will have the right to designate one member. Our executive officers immediately after the Effective Time will be designated by Adynxx.

 

The transactions contemplated by the Adynxx Merger Agreement were approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of issued and outstanding shares of our common stock on April 8, 2019. In addition to the receipt of our approval of our stockholders, each party’s obligation to consummate the Adynxx Merger is conditioned upon certain other customary closing conditions.

 

Spin-Off and Merger of AquaMed Technologies, Inc.

 

On November 27, 2018, AquaMed Technologies, Inc. (“AquaMed”), our wholly-owned subsidiary, AQ TOP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of AquaMed, and TO Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TOP”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “TOP Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the TOP Merger Agreement, TOP Merger Sub will merge with and into TOP, with TOP becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of AquaMed and the surviving company of the merger.

 

The TOP Merger is expected to occur after our consummation of the following steps:

 

(1) Pursuant to an Asset Contribution and Separation Agreement to be entered into by and between us and AquaMed (the “Separation Agreement”) prior to consummation of the TOP Merger, we will transfer certain assets and liabilities utilized primarily in connection with our custom hydrogels contract manufacturing business to AquaMed (the “Separation”),

 

(2) AquaMed will issue a to be determined number of shares of its common stock to us in consideration of the contribution of assets pursuant to the Separation Agreement (the “Distribution Consideration”),

 

(3) We will distribute to our stockholders all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of AquaMed by way of a pro rata dividend (the “Distribution” and together with the Separation, the “Spin-Off”), and

 

(4) We intend to consummate Adynxx Merger.

 

16  

 

 

At the effective time of the TOP Merger, all of the outstanding membership units of TOP will be converted into the right to receive, in the aggregate, merger consideration consisting of shares of AquaMed common stock. Immediately after the effective time of the TOP Merger and consummation of the Private Placement (as specifically defined in the TOP Merger Agreement), before giving effect to any fees payable in equity to financial advisors or other intermediaries, the current members of TOP and the third-party investors that participate in the Private Placement are expected to hold approximately 90% of the total number of shares of AquaMed common stock outstanding (on a fully diluted basis).

 

The Company’s operations contemplated under the Adynxx Merger Agreement and the TOP Merger Agreement are classified as Held for Use.

 

Dividends

 

On April 11, 2019, our Board of Directors declared a conditional one-time special cash dividend (the “Special Dividend”) of $1.05 per share payable to stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 22, 2019 (the “Record Date”). On April 11, 2019, our Board of Directors also announced that the Record Date would be the record date for determining stockholders entitled to receive shares of AquaMed in the Distribution.

 

The payment of the Special Dividend is subject to the consummation of the Adynxx Merger (the “Special Dividend Condition”). In addition, the Distribution is subject to the satisfaction of all conditions to closing of TOP Merger and the substantially simultaneous consummation of the TOP Merger (the “Distribution Condition”).

 

It is currently expected that the payment date for the Special Dividend and the distribution date for the Distribution will be as soon as practicable after satisfaction of the Special Dividend Condition and the Distribution Condition, as applicable, and in each case, no later than June 21, 2019.

 

In the event that the Special Dividend is paid, our cash and cash equivalents will decline significantly.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $1.1 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, primarily to fund our net loss of approximately $0.866 million in 2019 and $5.1 million in 2018.

 

Net cash provided by investing activities was $0 and $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Cash provided by investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 included a payment from escrow for the Argentum TheraBond Sale.

 

Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was of $0. Net cash provided by financing activities for the year three months March 31, 2018 consisted of $1.7 million of net proceeds received from a bridge loan issued by Perceptive Advisors.

 

At March 31, 2019, current assets totaled $8.0 million and current liabilities totaled $0.975 million. As a result, we had working capital of $7.1 million at March 31, 2019. As of March 31, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling approximately $7.7 million compared to $8.9 million at December 31, 2018.

 

Given our current cash position and reduced cash burn, we believe substantial doubt has been mitigated and we have sufficient resources to support our planned operations for a year from the date these financial statements are issued. If the conditions to the Special Dividend are satisfied and the Special Dividend is paid, however, our cash and cash equivalents will decline significantly.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

 

Overview .

 

Our operations intended to be sold under the Adynxx Merger Agreement and distributed in the Spin-Off have not been reclassified to discontinued operations since they are classified as Held for Use. These operations will be presented in continuing operations until the Adynxx Merger Agreement is consummated. each party’s obligation to consummate the Adynxx Merger is conditioned upon certain customary closing conditions. Once consummated, these operations will be reclassified to discontinued operations.

 

Revenues, net . For the three months ended March 31, 2019 revenues decreased by $0.415 million, or 76%, to $0.129 million from $0.544 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in our overall revenue was primarily due to decrease orders from our contract manufacturing customers, particularly Bard Shannon Limited.

The components of revenue were as follows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands):

 

    Three Months Ended March 31,  
    2019     2018  
Revenues                
Product   $ -     $ 4  
Contract manufacturing     129       540  
Total revenues, net   $ 129     $ 544  

 

Gross loss/profit . Our gross loss was $0.108 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to gross profit of $0.127 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The weakened results for the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to 2018 was primarily due to a decrease in orders from our contract manufacturing customers, particularly Bard Shannon Limited, combined with normal cost of revenues. Gross margin was approximately a negative 84% for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Gross margin was approximately 23% for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

The components of cost of revenues are as follows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands):

 

    Three Months Ended March 31,  
    2019     2018  
Cost of revenues                
Materials and finished products   $ 25     $ 48  
Stock-based compensation     -       14  
Compensation and benefits     93       104  
Depreciation and amortization     28       143  
Equipment, production and other expenses     91       108  
Total cost of revenues   $ 237     $ 417  

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses . The following table highlights selling, general and administrative expenses by type for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands):

 

    Three Months Ended March 31,  
    2019     2018  
Selling, general and administrative expenses                
Compensation and benefits   $ 126     $ 655  
Stock-based compensation     -       (136 )
Depreciation and amortization     6       8  
Other expenses and professional fees     473       1,345  
Total selling, general and administrative expenses   $ 605     $ 1,872  

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $1.3 million, to $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Compensation and benefits decreased by $0.529 million, to $0.126 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $0.655 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in compensation and benefits was primarily due to the decrease in the average number of full-time employees in 2019 of two compared to 2018 of nine. Stock-based compensation changed by $0.136 million, to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to a credit of $0.136 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The change in stock based compensation is primarily due to no unrecognized stock-based compensation remaining and due to an increase in stock price.

 

Other expenses and professional fees decreased by $0.872 million to $0.473 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Other expense and professional fees consisted of costs associated with our general management, including information technology, legal fees, travel and consulting fees. The decrease is primarily due to lower legal and consulting expenses.

  

Business Development Costs . During the three months ended March 31, 2019, we incurred $0.27 million in costs related to business development opportunities. These costs were mainly due to transactional costs we incurred in relation to professional fees, including accounting, legal and consulting fees exploring business strategy and business combination; in the past these were in selling, general and administrative expenses, however, because they are not of a normal course of business, these have been reclassified to the separate caption of business development costs. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, we incurred $0 in costs related to business development opportunities.

 

18  

 

 

Loss from Discontinued Operations. During the year ended December 31, 2018, we sold our rights to the Biovance, Interfyl and MIST product lines, as well as our remaining Biovance, Interfyl and MIST inventory. This sale resulted in an income from discontinued operations of approximately $0.240 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, we had a loss from discontinued operations of $3.3 million in connection with our discontinued Biovance, Interfyl and MIST product lines and Therabond product line.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements in the nature of guarantee contracts, retained or contingent interests in assets transferred to unconsolidated entities (or similar arrangements serving as credit, liquidity or market risk support to unconsolidated entities for any such assets), or obligations (including contingent obligations) arising out of variable interests in unconsolidated entities providing financing, liquidity, market risk or credit risk support to us, or that engage in leasing, hedging or research and development services with us. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

There has been a significant change to our critical accounting policies and estimates from the information provided in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, noted below. 

 

Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”). ASC 842 requires management to make significant judgments and estimates. As a result, we implemented changes to our internal controls related to lease evaluation for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These changes include updated accounting policies affected by ASC 842 as well as redesigned internal controls over financial reporting related to ASC 842 implementation. Additionally, management has expanded data gathering procedures to comply with the additional disclosure requirements and ongoing contract review requirements.

 

Recent Accounting Standards

 

Recently issued accounting standards are addressed in Note 1 in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not required.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of March 31, 2019, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (“Disclosure Controls”), as defined by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Disclosure Controls evaluation was done under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our chief executive officer. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. Based upon this evaluation, our chief executive officer have concluded that our Disclosure Controls and Procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of March 31, 2019.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been a change in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842, “Leases” (“ASC 842”). ASC 842 requires management to make significant judgments and estimates. As a result, we implemented changes to our internal controls related to lease evaluation for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These changes include updated accounting policies affected by ASC 842 as well as redesigned internal controls over financial reporting related to ASC 842 implementation. Additionally, management has expanded data gathering procedures to comply with the additional disclosure requirements and ongoing contract review requirements.
