Going Concern

(2) Going Concern


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. However, we have experienced negative cash flows from operations with respect to our pressure cycling technology business since our inception. As of December 31, 2020, we do not have adequate working capital resources to satisfy our current liabilities and as a result, there is substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern. We have been successful in raising cash through debt and equity offerings in the past and as described in Notes 10 and 11, completed debt financing subsequent to December 31, 2020. We have financing efforts in place to continue to raise cash through debt and equity offerings.


Management has developed a plan to continue operations. This plan includes obtaining equity or debt financing. During the year ended December 31, 2020 we received $9,871,039 net proceeds in additional convertible and non-convertible debt. We also received $150,000 in net proceeds from the sale of Series AA Preferred Stock during the year. Although we have successfully completed financings and reduced expenses in the past, we cannot assure you that our plans to address these matters in the future will be successful.


Management’s plans to alleviate these conditions that raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern include pursuing one or more of the following options to raise additional funding, none of which can be guaranteed or are entirely within the Company’s control:


  Raise funding through the possible additional sales of the Company’s common stock, including public or private equity financings.
  Raise additional loan funding.
  Continue to seek partners to advance the PCT, BaroFold, and UST technology platforms.
  Earn payments pursuant to potential collaboration and license agreements for BaroFold patents. 
  Seek strategic direct equity investments from existing multiple partners


There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will receive cash proceeds from any of these potential resources or, to the extent cash proceeds are received, those proceeds would be sufficient to support the Company’s operations for at least the next twelve months from the date of filing this Annual Report on Form 10-K.


Generally, management’s plans must be approved before the date the financial statements are issued to be considered probable of being effectively implemented. The future receipt of potential funding from the Company’s collaborators and other resources is not considered probable at this time because none of the Company’s current plans have been finalized at the time of filing this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Accordingly, substantial doubt is deemed to exist about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date these financial statements are issued.


The Company believes that its $18,540 in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2020 and additional debt and equity financings would allow it to fund its planned operations into the first quarter of 2021. This estimate assumes no additional funding from new partnership agreements, and no accelerated repayment of its term loans. Accordingly, the timing and nature of activities contemplated for the remainder of 2021 and thereafter will be conducted subject to the availability of sufficient financial resources.


If the Company is unable to raise capital when needed or on attractive terms, or if it is unable to procure partnership arrangements to advance its programs, the Company would be forced to delay, reduce or eliminate its research and development programs and any future commercialization efforts.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the ordinary course of business. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from the outcome of the uncertainties described above.
