(Amounts expressed in U.S. Dollars)

 

1.NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

The Company and its Operations

  

Bionik Laboratories Corp. (formerly Drywave Technologies, Inc., herein referred to as the “Company” or “Bionik”) was incorporated on January 8, 2010 in the State of Colorado as Strategic Dental Management Corp. On July 16, 2013, the Company changed its name to Drywave Technologies Inc. (“Drywave”) and its state of incorporation from Colorado to Delaware. Effective February 13, 2015, the Company changed its name to Bionik Laboratories Corp. and reduced the authorized number of shares of common stock from 200,000,000 to 150,000,000. Concurrently, the Company implemented a 1-for-0.831105 reverse stock split of the common stock, which had previously been approved September 24, 2014. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements consolidate the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries Bionik Laboratories Inc. ("Bionik Canada") and Bionik Acquisition Inc.

  

The Company is a bioengineering research and development company targeting diseases and injuries that impact human mobility. The Company is working towards its first product, which will be the “ARKE”, a robotic pair of exoskeleton legs to be used for rehabilitation purposes and potentially for day-to-day use as a replacement for a wheelchair.

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"), which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern, which assumes the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

 

On February 26, 2015, the Company finalized a Share Exchange Agreement whereby Bionik Canada issued 50,000,000 Exchangeable Shares, representing a 3.14 exchange ratio, for 100% of the outstanding common shares of Bionik Canada (the “Acquisition Transaction”). The Exchangeable Shares are exchangeable at the option of the holder, each into one share of common stock of the Company. In addition the Company issued one share of its Special Preferred Voting Stock (the “Special Preferred Share”) (Note 7). Immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition Transaction, Drywave transferred all of the business, properties, assets, operations and liabilities to two former officers and directors of the Company and to a third-party entity such that as of the closing of the Acquisition Transaction there were no assets or liabilities.

 

After giving effect to the Acquisition Transaction, the Company commenced operations through Bionik Canada which by virtue of the Acquisition Transaction is now a reporting issuer through the Company’s listing on the OTC Pink marketplace.

 

As a result of the shareholders of Bionik Canada having a controlling interest in the Company subsequent to the Acquisition Transaction, for accounting purposes the Acquisition Transaction does not constitute a business combination. The transaction has been accounted for as a recapitalization of the Company with Bionik Canada being the accounting acquirer even though the legal acquirer is Bionik, accordingly, the historic financial statements of Bionik Canada are presented as the comparative balances for the period prior to the Acquisition Transaction.

 

References to the Company refer to the Company and its wholly—owned subsidiaries, Bionik Acquisition Inc. and Bionik Laboratories Inc. References to Drywave relate to the Company prior to the Acquisition Transaction.

 

The Company has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations. As at March 31, 2015, the Company has a working capital surplus of $5,783,276 (December 31, 2014 - a working capital deficit of $128,361) and shareholders’ equity of $5,883,905 (December 31, 2014 - a shareholder’s deficiency of $50,439) and incurred a net loss and comprehensive loss of $1,221,984 for the three- month period ended March 31, 2015 (March 31, 2014 - $63,644).  Further, the Company expects that the ARKE will be categorized as a Class II medical device with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and accordingly will be subject to FDA regulations, guidelines and the FDA’s Quality System Regulation (“QSR”) in order to market and sell their product in the U.S. The costs of obtaining the necessary FDA approval and maintaining compliance with the FDA could be significant. See Note 11.

 

The Company’s principal offices are located at 483 Bay Street, N105, Toronto, Ontario, M5G 2C9.

2.SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual audited financial statements and should be read in conjunction with those annual audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014. In the opinion of management, these unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements reflect adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown. The results of operations for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for a full year or for any future period.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”. The standard outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. The accounting standard is effective for annual reporting periods (including interim reporting periods within those periods) beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is not permitted. The impact on the condensed interim financial statements of adopting ASU 2014-09 will be assessed by management.

 

On August 27, 2014, the FASB issued a new financial accounting standard on going concern, ASU No. 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Sub-Topic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” The standard provides guidance about management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is a substantial doubt about the organization’s ability to continue as a going concern. The amendments in this Update apply to all companies. They become effective in the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, with early application permitted. The impact on the condensed interim financial statements of adopting ASU 2014-15 will be assessed by management.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The Company’s reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. The functional currency is separately determined for the Company and each of its subsidiaries, and is used to measure the financial position and operating results. The functional currency of the Company is the U.S. dollar, the functional currency of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Bionik Canada and Bionik Acquisition Inc. is the Canadian Dollar. Transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are recorded on initial recognition at the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. After initial recognition, monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency are translated at the end of each reporting period into the functional currency at the exchange rate at that date. Exchange differences are recognized in profit or loss. Non-monetary assets and liabilities measured at cost are translated at the exchange rate at the date of the transaction.

 

Bionik Canada and Bionik Acquisition Inc.’s assets and liabilities are translated into the U.S. dollar using the exchange rates at each balance sheet date. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the reporting period. Shareholders’ equity (deficiency) is translated at historical rates. Adjustments resulting from translating the condensed consolidated interim financial statements into the U.S. dollar are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the statement of changes in shareholders’ equity (deficiency).

5.CONVERTIBLE SECURED PROMISSORY NOTE

 

On December 8, 2011, the Company received $61,500 CAD from a lender that at the time was non-interest bearing and had no specified terms of repayment. On February 28, 2012, the lender and the Company agreed to the terms of a Convertible Secured Promissory Note, which securitized the previous note plus an additional $60,000 CAD for a total principal amount of $121,500 CAD. The note was interest bearing at prime plus 1%, secured by a general security agreement and was to mature on the earlier of a qualifying financing event or February 28, 2014. The lender had an option to convert the principal plus accrued interest at a discount of 20% to the share price in the event of a qualifying financing event prior to February 28, 2014.

 

The note matured on February 28, 2014, at this point the conversion option expired and the note became due on demand; however, no repayment was demanded. Upon the occurrence of the April financing (Note 7 (i)) the Company agreed to honor the original conversion option and a beneficial conversion feature of $27,677 was recognized. As the note was due on demand the Company immediately recognized imputed interest of $27,677 in the condensed consolidated interim statement of operations and comprehensive loss.

 

On May 9, 2014, the lender converted the note plus accrued interest into common shares based on the 20% discount to the $0.81 ($0.90 CAD) per share equity financing that was accomplished in April 2014 and the Company issued these pre-transaction shares in June 2014. (See Note 7(iii)).

 

6.RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS AND BALANCES

 

Due from related parties

 

(a)As of March 31, 2015, the Company had advances receivable from the Chief Operating Officer (“COO”) and Chief Technology Officer (“CTO”) for $41,480 (December 31, 2014 – $44,986). These advances are unsecured, bear interest at a rate of 1% based on the Canada Revenue Agency’s prescribed rate for such advances and are payable on demand in Canadian dollars. The Company advanced funds to settle a tax assessment; the Company paid additional salary amounts that had not been made during the period; and the Company reimbursed $37,837 ($44,000 CAD) related to various out-of-pocket costs they incurred on behalf of the Company, all of which resulted in a net advance of $41,480 as of March 31, 2015.

 

Issuance of shares to settle due to related party

 

(b)During the nine months ended December 31, 2014, one advance amounting to $85,947 ($95,000 CAD) was settled by the issuance of 105,555 pre-Acquisition Transaction common shares of Bionik Canada to a former director.

(c)As at March 31, 2015, $1,490 (December 31, 2014 - $4,220) was owing to the CEO, $9,752 (December 31, 2014 - $5,930) was owing to the CTO and $7,025 was owing to the COO, related to business expenses, all of which are included in accounts payable.

10.CONTINGENCIES

 

From time to time, the Company may be involved in a variety of claims, suits, investigations and proceedings arising in the ordinary course of our business, collections claims, breach of contract claims, labor and employment claims, tax and other matters. Although claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and their results cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company believes that the resolution of current pending matters will not have a material adverse effect on its business, financial position, results of operations or cash flow. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on the Company because of legal costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

11.RISK MANAGEMENT

 

The Company’s cash balances are maintained in two banks in Canada and a Canadian Bank subsidiary in the US. Deposits held in banks in Canada are insured up to $100,000 CAD per depositor for each bank by The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, a federal crown corporation. Actual balances at times may exceed these limits.

 

Interest Rate Risk

 

Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument might be adversely affected by a change in the interest rates. The Company settled its loans payable and convertible secured promissory note; therefore, it retains minimal exposure to fluctuations in the market interest rate. In seeking to minimize the risks from interest rate fluctuations, the Company manages exposure through its normal operating and financing activities.

 

Liquidity Risk

 

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will incur difficulties meeting its financial obligations they are due. The Company’s approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities are due within the current operating period.

 

The Company has funded its operations through the issuance of capital stock, convertible debt and loans in addition to grants and investment tax credits received from the Government of Canada.

 

Based on management’s assessment of the Company’s cash flow needs, management believes the Company has sufficient cash to sustain operations for an additional 12 -month period.

 

12.SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

(i)Subsequent to March 31, 2015, the Company provided a loan to a third party in the amount of $150,000 under normal commercial terms. The loan carries an interest rate of 5% payable semi-yearly, is secured to all assets of the borrower and is repayable in 18 months.

 

(ii)On April 21, 2015, the Company issued 3,115,000 Units for gross proceeds of $2,492,000 to accredited investors in a fourth closing (the “Fourth Closing”). Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company, and a warrant to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $1.40 per share exercisable for 4 years The Company incurred share issue costs related to the Fourth Closing of $338,960 and issued 311,500 broker warrants exercisable at $0.80 for a period of 4 years.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Forward-looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains statements reflecting assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions or beliefs about future events that are intended as “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements included or incorporated by reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, other than statements of historical fact, that address activities, events or developments that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These statements appear in a number of places, including, but not limited to in this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” These statements represent our reasonable judgment of the future based on various factors and using numerous assumptions and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results and financial position to differ materially from those contemplated by the statements. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts, and use words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “may,” “should,” “plan,” “project” and other words of similar meaning. In particular, these include, but are not limited to, statements relating to the following:

 

projected operating or financial results, including anticipated cash flows used in operations;

 

expectations regarding capital expenditures; and

 

our beliefs and assumptions relating to our liquidity position, including our ability to obtain additional financing.

 

Any or all of our forward-looking statements may turn out to be wrong. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors including, among others:

 

the loss of key management personnel on whom we depend;

 

our ability to operate our business efficiently, manage capital expenditures and costs (including general and administrative expenses) and obtain financing when required; and

 

our expectations with respect to our acquisition activity.

 

In addition, there may be other factors that could cause our actual results to be materially different from the results referenced in the forward-looking statements, some of which are included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including in this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” Many of these factors will be important in determining our actual future results. Consequently, no forward-looking statement can be guaranteed. Our actual future results may vary materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, except as otherwise required by applicable law.

 

17
 

 

This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the accompanying financial statements and related notes. The discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations are based upon the financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of any contingent liabilities at the financial statement date and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. On an on-going basis we review our estimates and assumptions. The estimates were based on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results are likely to differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions, but we do not believe such differences will materially affect our financial position or results of operations.

 

General; History of the Company

 

Bionik Laboratories Corp. was incorporated on January 8, 2010 in the State of Colorado. At the time of our incorporation the name of our company was Strategic Dental Management Corp. On July 16, 2013, we changed our name from Strategic Dental Management Corp. to Drywave Technologies, Inc. and changed our state of incorporation from Colorado to Delaware. Effective February 13, 2015, we filed with the Secretary of State of Delaware a Certificate of Amendment to our Articles of Incorporation whereby, among other things, we changed our name to Bionik Laboratories Corp. and reduced the authorized number of shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), from 200,000,000 to 150,000,000. Additionally, on September 24, 2014, our stockholders approved a 1-for-0.831105 reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding shares of our Common Stock, and adopted an equity incentive plan. The reverse stock split was implemented on February 13, 2015.

 

The Acquisition Transaction

 

On February 26, 2015, we entered into an Investment Agreement with Bionik Acquisition Inc., a company existing under the laws of Canada, and our wholly owned subsidiary (“Acquireco”), and Bionik Laboratories, Inc. (“Bionik Canada”), a company incorporated on March 24, 2011 under the Canada Business Corporations Act (the “Investment Agreement”), whereby we acquired 100 Class 1 common shares of Bionik Canada representing 100% of the outstanding Class 1 common shares of Bionik Canada, taking into account the Exchangeable Share Transaction (as defined below) (the “Acquisition Transaction”). After giving effect to the Acquisition Transaction, we commenced operations through Bionik Canada.

 

Immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition Transaction and the First Closing (as defined below), we transferred all of the business, properties, assets, operations and goodwill of the Company (other than cash and cash equivalents), and liabilities as of March 6, 2013, to our then-existing wholly owned subsidiary, Strategic Dental Alliance, Inc., and then transferred all of the capital stock of Strategic Dental Alliance to Brian E. Ray, a former officer and existing director (through March 20, 2015) and Jon Lundgreen, a former officer and director, pursuant to a Spin-Off Agreement. Also as of immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition Transaction and the First Closing, we entered into an Assignment and Assumption Agreement with Tungsten 74 LLC, pursuant to which Tungsten 74 LLC assumed all of our remaining liabilities through the closing of the Acquisition Transaction. Accordingly, as of the closing of the Acquisition Transaction and the First Closing, we had no assets or liabilities.

 

18
 

 

As a condition of the closing of the Acquisition Transaction, Bionik Canada created a new class of exchangeable shares (the “Exchangeable Shares”), which were issued to the existing common shareholders of Bionik Canada in exchange for all of their outstanding common shares, all of which were cancelled (the “Exchangeable Share Transaction”).

 

Pursuant to the rights and privileges of the Exchangeable Shares, the holders of such Exchangeable Shares maintain the right to (i) received dividends equal to, and paid concurrently with, dividends paid by the Company to the holders of Common Stock; (ii) vote, through the Trustee’s voting of the Special Voting Preferred Stock (as defined herein) on all matters that the holders of Common Stock are entitled to vote upon; and (iii) receive shares of Common Stock upon the liquidation or insolvency of the Company upon the redemption of such Exchangeable Shares by Acquireco.

 

As part of the Exchangeable Share Transaction, we entered into the following agreements, each dated February 26, 2015:

 

Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement (the “Trust Agreement”) with Bionik Canada and Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the “Trustee”); and

 

Support Agreement (the “Support Agreement”) with Acquireco and Bionik Canada.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Trust Agreement, the parties created a trust for the benefit of its beneficiaries, which are the holders of the Exchangeable Shares, enabling the Trustee to exercise the voting rights of such holders until such time as they choose to redeem their Exchangeable Shares for shares of the Common Stock of the Company, and allowing the Trustee to hold certain exchange rights in respect of the Exchangeable Shares.

 

As a condition of the Trust Agreement and prior to the execution thereof, we filed a Certificate of Designation with the Delaware Secretary of State, effective February 20, 2015, designating a class of our preferred shares as The Special Voting Preferred Stock (the “Special Voting Preferred Stock”) and issued one share of the Special Voting Preferred Stock to the Trustee.

 

The Special Voting Preferred Stock entitles the Trustee to exercise the number of votes equal to the number of Exchangeable Shares outstanding on a one-for-one basis during the term of the Trust Agreement. The Trust Agreement further sets out the terms and conditions under which holders of the Exchangeable Shares are entitled to instruct the Trustee as to how to vote during any stockholder meetings of our company.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Trust Agreement, we granted the Trustee the right to require our Company to purchase the Exchangeable Shares from any beneficiary upon the occurrence of certain events including in the event that we are bankrupt, insolvent or our business is wound up. The Trust Agreement continues to remain in force until the earliest of the following events: (i) no outstanding Exchangeable Shares are held by any beneficiary under the Trust Agreement; and (ii) each of Bionik Canada and us elects to terminate the Trust Agreement in writing and the termination is approved by the beneficiaries.

 

19
 

 

Pursuant to the terms of the terms of the Support Agreement, we agreed to certain covenants while the Exchangeable Shares were outstanding, including: (i) not to declare or pay any dividends on our Common Stock unless simultaneously declaring the equivalent dividend for the holders of the Exchangeable Shares, (ii) advising Bionik Canada in advance of any dividend declaration by our company, (iii) ensure that the record date for any dividend or other distribution declared on the shares of the Company is not less than seven days after the declaration date of such dividend or other distribution; (iv) taking all actions reasonably necessary to enable Bionik Canada to pay and otherwise perform its obligations with respect to the issued and outstanding Exchangeable Shares, (iv) to ensure that shares of the Company are delivered to holders of Exchangeable Shares upon exercise of certain redemption rights set out in the agreement and in the rights and restrictions of the Exchangeable Shares, and (v) reserving for issuance and keeping available from our authorized Common Stock such number of shares as may be equal to: (A) the number of Exchangeable Shares issued and outstanding from time to time; and (B) the number of Exchangeable Shares issuable upon the exercise of all rights to acquire Exchangeable Shares from time to time.

 

The Support Agreement also outlines certain restrictions on our ability to issue any dividends, rights, options or warrants to all or substantially all of our stockholders during the term of the agreement unless the economic equivalent is provided to the holders of Exchangeable Shares. The Support Agreement is governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario.

 

Concurrently with the closing of the Acquisition Transaction and in contemplation of the Acquisition Transaction, we sold 7,735,750 units (the “Units”) for gross proceeds of $6,188,600 (including $500,000 of outstanding bridge loans converted into Units at the offering price) at a purchase price of $0.80 per Unit (the “Purchase Price”) in a private placement offering (the “Offering”). Each Unit consists of one share of Common Stock and a warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase one share of Common Stock at an initial exercise price of $1.40 per share (the “Warrant Shares”), exercisable for 4 years. The Common Stock and Warrants were sold to each subscriber of the Offering pursuant to a Subscription Agreement (“Subscription Agreement”). The company incurred share issued costs related to this transaction of $848,822 and issued 773,575 broker warrants exercisable at $0.80 for a period of 4 years.

 

The Offering was being offered with a minimum offering amount of $6,000,000 (the “Minimum Offering Amount”) and up to a maximum offering amount of $12,800,000 (subject to an overallotment option). Once the Minimum Offering amount was reached and held in escrow and other conditions to closing were satisfied (including the simultaneous closing of the Acquisition Transaction), the Company and the placement agent were able to conduct a first closing (the “First Closing”). As a result of the Offering, after payment of placement agent fees and expenses but before the payment of other offering expenses such as legal and accounting expenses, we received net proceeds of approximately $5,383,734 at the First Closing, including the $500,000 in bridge loans we previously received that were taken into account as part of the Minimum Offering Amount.

 

20
 

 

As of the Acquisition Transaction and the First Closing, an aggregate of 90,575,126 shares of our Common Stock were deemed cancelled, of which 90,207,241 were held by our former Chief Executive Officer.

 

Immediately following the Acquisition Transaction, the Exchangeable Share Transaction and the First Closing, there were 6,000,000 were held by existing stockholders, 7,735,750 were held by the investors in the Offering and Bionik Canada shareholders held an equivalent of 50,000,000 shares of our Common Stock through their ownership of 100% of the Exchangeable Shares which vote alongside the Common Stock through the one issued and outstanding share of Special Voting Preferred Stock. Through the Trust Agreement, the Support Agreement and the one share of the Special Voting Preferred Stock, the former Bionik Laboratories Inc. shareholders hold substantially equivalent rights that the current Bionik Laboratories Corp. common shareholders have.

 

On March 27, 2015, we sold to accredited investors in a second closing, 1,212,500 Units for gross proceeds of $970,000 at the Purchase Price. The Company incurred share issue costs related to the transaction of $141,100 and issued 121,250 broker warrants exercisable at $0.80 for 4 years. After payment of placement agent fees and expenses but before the payment of other Offering expenses such as legal and accounting expenses, we received net proceeds of $828,900.

 

On March 31, 2015, we sold to accredited investors in a third closing, 891,250 Units for gross proceeds of $713,000 at the Purchase Price. The Company incurred share issued costs related to the transaction of $97,098 and issued 89,125 broker warrants exercisable at $0.80 for 4 years. After payment of placement agent fees and expenses but before the payment of other offering expenses such as legal and accounting expenses, we received net proceeds of $620,310.

 

On April 21, 2015, we sold to accredited investors in a fourth closing, 3,115,000 Units for gross proceeds of $2,492,000 at the Purchase Price. After payment of placement agent fees and expenses but before the payment of other offering expenses such as legal and accounting expenses, we received net proceeds of $2,153,040.

 

Through May 13, 2015, we have raised in the Offering aggregate gross proceeds of $10,363,600. As a result, our pre-Acquisition Transaction stockholders hold approximately 8.7% of our issued and outstanding shares through of Common Stock, the former stockholders of Bionik Canada have a right to 72.5% of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock through their ownership of 100% of the Exchangeable Shares, and the investors in the Offering hold approximately 18.8% of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

As of May 13, 2015, we are a medical device company engaged in the business of designing, developing and commercializing physical rehabilitation technologies, prosthetics, and assisted robotic products. We strive to create products that improve an individual’s health, comfort, accessibility and quality of life through products that use advanced algorithms and sensing technologies to anticipate a user’s every move.

During the first quarter of 2015 we continue to progress with the development of ARKE, and the regulatory work required to obtain the necessary approvals in major markets. Further testing of the product is expected to continue at an accelerated pace through the balance of the year.

 

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations are based upon the financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of any contingent liabilities at the financial statement date and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. On an on-going basis we review our estimates and assumptions. The estimates were based on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results are likely to differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions, but we do not believe such differences will materially affect our financial position or results of operations.

 

Results of Operations

 

From the inception of Bionik Canada on March 24, 2011 through to March 31, 2015, we have generated a deficit of $6,300,655. We expect to incur additional operating losses during the fiscal year ending December 31, 2015 and beyond, principally as a result of our continuing research and development of ARKE, our planned first product.

 

Our results of operations are presented for the three months ended March 31, 2015 with comparatives for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Bionik Canada changed its fiscal year to the calendar twelve months ending December 31 to conform to the fiscal year of the Company, effective beginning after Bionik Canada’s previous fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

 

The First Quarter - Three Months ended March 31, 2015 compared to the Three Months ended March 31, 2014

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 were $1,246,673 and $82,481 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, as further described below.

 

Research and development expenses were $435,671 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 compared to expenses of $232,032 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The increase relates primarily to the additional engineering and quality staff to develop our technology and meet regulatory mandates.

 

In the first quarter of 2015 we incurred professional and consulting fees of $261,350 compared $165,302 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The increase in professional and consulting fees relate primarily to the addition of a consultant to assist in meeting ISO and initial FDA qualifying requirements as well as legal and accounting costs related to the Acquisition Transaction.

 

22
 

 

In the first quarter of 2015, we incurred general and administrative expenses of $167,747 compared to general and administrative expenses of $95,699 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The increase in general and administrative expenses relate primarily to the addition of a CEO and CFO to the company. During 2014 there was no CFO and the CEO was a consultant.

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, we incurred interest expenses of $179 and imputed interest expenses of $nil, compared to interest expenses of $17,124 and imputed interest expenses of $45,063 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in interest expenses relates to the repayment of all debt in the Company by December 31, 2014.

 

Other Expenses

 

For the first quarter we generated a foreign exchange gain of $24,779 compared to a gain of $18,837 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The gain resulted from the translation of currency in the financial statements from the Company’s functional currency of Canadian dollars to the reporting currency in U.S. dollars.

 

Other Income

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, we have other income of $323 compared to other income of $473,162 for the quarter year ended March 31, 2014. The 2014 other income is related to a Canadian cash tax refund for Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) for the period of April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. As a result of a shorter time available to report the financial statements in 2015, the 2015 SR&ED was not recorded in the first quarter and will be reported in the second quarter.

 

Stock Compensation Expense

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company recorded $371,637 of stock compensation related to the stock options granted by the Company. The options previously granted by Bionik prior to the Acquisition Transaction, were revalued on the completion of the reverse takeover transaction and new option grant in the quarter resulting in the expense. There was no compensation expense in the first quarter of 2014.

 

23
 

 

Comprehensive Loss

 

Comprehensive loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 amounted to $1,221,894, resulting in a loss per share of $0.02, compared to a loss of $63,644 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, resulting in a loss per share of $0.00. The increase in the comprehensive loss for the first quarter of 2015 compared to the first quarter of 2014 is primarily due to higher research and development costs, professional and consulting fees and general and administrative costs all connected to the company’s growth in the first quarter of 2015 and the recording of the SR&ED refund in the first quarter of 2014.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We are a development stage company and have not yet realized any revenues from our planned operations.

 

Bionik funded operations previously through the issuance of capital stock, loans, grants and investment tax credits received from the Government of Canada. During the year ended December 31, 2014, Bionik Canada raised additional funds of $2,616,062 and issued 11,804,477 common shares, including debt settlements. In addition, Bionik raised cash of $228,875 from the exercise of an option to purchase shares and issued 1,310,734 common shares.

 

In addition, Bionik Canada received a MITACS grant to fund 3 post doctorial fellows at a net cost of CND$72,000 per annum, and grants to fund clinical research and trials. We expect to be able to continue to access government funding in the future.

 

As we proceed with the ARKE product development we expect to continue to devote significant resources to research and development, quality, regulatory and marketing and sales.

 

We may require additional funds to further develop our business plan, including the anticipated commercialization of the ARKE. Based on our current operating plans, we will require additional resources to introduce the ARKE into the home market. Since it is impossible to predict with certainty the timing and amount of funds required to launch the ARKE in any other markets or any of our other proposed products, we anticipate that we will need to raise additional funds through equity or debt offerings or otherwise in order to meet our expected future liquidity requirements. Any such financing that we undertake will likely be dilutive to existing stockholders.

 

In addition, we expect to also need additional funds to respond to business opportunities, protecting our intellectual property, developing new lines of business and enhancing our operating infrastructure. While we may need to seek additional funding for such purposes, we may not be able to obtain financing on acceptable terms, or at all. In addition, the terms of our financings may be dilutive to, or otherwise adversely affect, holders of our common stock. We may also seek additional funds through arrangements with collaborators or other third parties. We may not be able to negotiate any such arrangements on acceptable terms, if at all. If we are unable to obtain additional funding on a timely basis, we may be required to curtail or terminate some or all of its product lines.

 

24
 

 

To date, we have raised in the Offering aggregate gross proceeds of $10,363,600, of which $6,168,678 was received during the first quarter of 2015. We expect that we will have sufficient funds to continue operations for at least the next 12 months.

 

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities

 

During the first quarter ended March 31, 2015, we used cash in operating activities of $825,483 compared to $439,664 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The increased use of cash is mainly attributable to the loss in the first quarter of 2015 of $1,246,673 due to higher research and development costs and the costs of becoming a public company compared to the first quarter of 2014 loss of $82,481 which results after recording other income of $473,162 in government scientific refunds that were accrued in the first quarter of 2014. The Company plans to apply for its final refundable scientific program during the second quarter of 2015.

 

Net Cash Provided by Investing Activities

 

During the first quarter of 2015, net cash of $38,820 and for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, net cash of $nil, respectively, was used for the acquisition of equipment. The equipment added is principally 3D printing equipment to help with the development of our technology.

 

Net Cash Used in Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $6,788,988 for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 compared to $351,423 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The increase is due to the Offering, whereas the 2014 activity was principally connected to the provision of loans.

 

Recent Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”. The standard outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. The accounting standard is effective for annual reporting periods (including interim reporting periods within those periods) beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is not permitted. The impact on the financial statements of adopting ASU 2014-09 will be assessed by management.

 

On August 27, 2014, the FASB issued a new financial accounting standard on going concern, ASU No. 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Sub-Topic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” The standard provides guidance about management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is a substantial doubt about the organization’s ability to continue as a going concern. The amendments in this Update apply to all companies. They become effective in the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, with early application permitted. The impact on the financial statements of adopting ASU 2014-15 will be assessed by management.

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed interim financial statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2015, there were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a- 15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act, that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b). Based upon this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report were ineffective.
