NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(unaudited)

 

1.Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for reporting on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures required for complete financial statements are not included herein. It is recommended that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes that appear in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of Bionik Laboratories Corp. (“Bionik” or the “Company”) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020 filed with the SEC on June 30, 2020 (the “2020 Annual Report”). In the opinion of the Company, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of its financial position as of December 31, 2020, and its results of operations for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and cash flows for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2020 was derived from audited annual financial statements, but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the annual financial statements. Results of operations for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the year ending March 31, 2021 or any period thereafter.

 

Reclassifications

 

For comparability purposes, certain prior period amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation within the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, condensed consolidated statement of cash flows and condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Management Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures at the date of the financial statements during the reporting period. Significant estimates are used for, but are not limited to, revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory reserves, impairment analysis of goodwill and intangibles including their useful lives, research and development accruals, deferred tax assets, liabilities and valuation allowances, and fair value of stock options. The Company assessed certain accounting matters that generally require consideration of forecasted financial information in context with the information reasonably available to the Company and the unknown future impacts of COVID-19 as of December 31, 2020 and through the date of this report filing. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates and actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

All adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, considered necessary for fair presentation have been included in these consolidated financial statements.

 

Going Concern

 

At December 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were $896,000. At December 31, 2020, the Company had a working capital deficit of $3.6 million and at March 31, 2020, the Company had working capital of $1.0 million. At December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company has accumulated deficits of $84.0 million and $71.4 million. The Company has incurred a net loss and comprehensive loss for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 of $12.6 million and $8.5 million, respectively.

 

The Company’s future funding requirements depend on a number of factors, including the rate of market acceptance of its current and future products and the resources the Company devotes to developing and supporting the same. There is no certainty that the Company will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving and maintaining profitable operations in the future to enable it to meet its obligations as they come due and consequently continue as a going concern.

 

The Company will require additional financing to fund its operations and it is currently working on securing this funding through corporate collaborations, public or private equity offerings or debt financings. Sales of additional equity securities by the Company would result in the dilution of the interests of existing stockholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required. In the event that the necessary additional financing is not obtained, the Company would reduce its discretionary overhead costs substantially or otherwise curtail operations. The Company expects to raise additional funds to meet the Company’s anticipated cash requirements for the next 12 months; however, these conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)

 

CEWS is recognized as other income in the consolidated statement of operations in the period in which the Company recognizes expenses for which CEWS is intended to compensate.

2.Goodwill and Intangible Assets

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. The Company does not amortize its goodwill, but instead tests for impairment annually in the fourth quarter and more frequently whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that fair value of the asset may be less than the carrying value of the asset.

 

Following the decline of Company sales associated with the global pandemic, management determined there are events and changes in circumstances that indicate the goodwill and other intangible assets are impaired. Accordingly, at December 31, 2020, the Company evaluated the ongoing value of the goodwill and other intangible assets. Based on this evaluation, the Company determined that certain intangible assets were no longer recoverable and were in fact impaired and recorded an impairment charge of $379,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2020. Further, the Company determined that the goodwill with the carrying value of $11.1 million was impaired and recorded an impairment charge of $6.8 million to the estimated value of $4.3 million. Fair value was based on expected future cash flows using Level 3 inputs under ASC 820. The cash flows are those expected to be generated by the market participants, discounted at the weighted average cost of capital.

  

As noted in the Company’s significant accounting policies, the Company has one reporting unit and its carrying value was compared to its estimated fair value. At December 31, 2020, the Company estimated its fair value using an income approach. The income approach is based on the present value of future cash flows, which are derived from long term financial forecasts, and requires significant assumptions and judgement including among others, a discount rate and a terminal value.

 

The present value of future cash flows was determined by discounting estimated future cash flows, which included long-term growth rate of 3%, at a weighted average cost of capital (discount rate) of 27%, which considered the risk of achieving the projected cash flows, including the risk applicable to the reporting unit, industry and market as a whole.

 

Changes to goodwill during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 were as follows:

 

    Total 
Balance—March 31, 2020   $11,085,984 
Impairment of goodwill in period    6,803,000 
Balance—December 31, 2020   $4,282,984 

 

The Company capitalizes and includes in intangible assets the costs of trademark, patents, exclusive license arrangements and customer relationships. Intangible assets are recorded at fair value at the time of their acquisition and stated net of accumulated amortization. The Company amortizes its intangible assets that have finite lives using either the straight-line or accelerated method, based on the useful life of the asset over which it is expected to be consumed utilizing expected undiscounted future cash flows. Amortization is recorded over the estimated useful lives ranging from 1 to 10 years. The Company evaluates the realizability of its definite lived intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances or business conditions indicate that the carrying value of these assets may not be recoverable based on expectations of future undiscounted cash flows for each asset group. If the carrying value of an asset or asset group exceeds its undiscounted cash flows, the Company estimates the fair value of the assets, generally utilizing a discounted cash flow analysis based on the present value of estimated future cash flows to be generated by the assets using a risk-adjusted discount rate. To estimate the fair value of the assets, the Company uses market participant assumptions pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures, (“ASC 820”). If the estimate of an intangible asset’s revised useful life is changed, the Company will amortize the remaining carrying value of the intangible asset prospectively over the revised useful life.

The Company provides a one-year warranty as part of its normal sales offering. When products are sold, the Company provides warranty reserves, which, based on the historical experience of the Company are sufficient to cover warranty claims. Accrued warranty costs are included in accrued liabilities on the condensed consolidated interim balance sheets and amounted to $46,000 at December 31, 2020 and $162,000 at March 31, 2020. The significant decrease in the accrued warranty costs relates to a reduction in the number of units sold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The significant increase in accrued personnel costs relates to the deferral of certain salary and bonus payments that are owed to senior management. The significant increase in accrued director fees relates to the deferral of certain payments owed to the Company’s independent board of directors.

 

4.Inventories

   During the nine months ended December 31, 2020, the Company received $1.5 million, in addition to $70,000 previously loaned to the Company, pursuant to a $7.0 million (previously $3.0 million) convertible note offering (the “Convertible Note Offering”). The convertible notes issued in the Convertible Note Offering (the “Convertible Notes”) bear interest at a fixed rate at 1% per month. The Convertible Notes will be convertible into equity of the Company upon the following events:

 

(i)On the maturity date of March 31, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”), the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Convertible Notes will be converted into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $8.55 per shares in the event of an investment on or prior to December 31, 2019, and $9.50 per share in the event of an investment after December 31, 2019 (the “Conversion Price”).

 

(ii)Upon a change of control transaction prior to the Maturity Date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the Convertible Notes would, at the election of the holders of a majority of the outstanding principal of the loans under the Convertible Note Offering, be either (i) payable upon demand as of the closing of such change of control transaction or (ii) convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to such change of control transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of (x) the Conversion Price or (y) the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the common stock in such change of control transaction.

 

In the event the Company raises capital through the sale of common stock for cash during the period ending on the three year anniversary of the issuance date of the convertible notes, and the price per share thereof (the “Offering Price”) minus 20% is less than the original Conversion Price, then in such event the Company shall issue to all Convertible Noteholders at, at no further cost, additional shares of common stock equal to the number of conversion shares the holders would have received upon conversion if the Conversion Price equaled to a 20% discount to the Offering Price, less the number of shares of conversion shares actually issued on or as of the Maturity Date. Since the Company has early adopted ASU 2017-11, the anti-dilution protection clause does not contribute to the conversion feature to be a derivative liability.

 

Interest expense associated with these Convertible Notes for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 was $47,000 and $104,000, respectively. Interest payable associated with these Convertible Notes at December 31, 2020 was $104,000 

 

Shareholder loan

 

On March 23, 2020, the Company received a $2.0 million loan from an existing shareholder. The promissory note evidencing the loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per month and has a maturity date of the earlier of (i) March 31, 2022 and (ii) the date of receipt of a minimum of $5.0 million from a “Subsequent Financing.” The accrued interest shall be payable in cash commencing on March 31, 2021 with the quarterly payments accrued for the first three payment dates (3-month, 6-month and 9-month anniversaries of the issue date), and then quarterly thereafter. The remaining half of the interest accrued will be paid upon the maturity date. The loan is repayable or convertible to common shares at the loan holder’s option on March 31, 2022 at a price per share equal to the price per share of the Company’s then most recent capital raise or debt conversion, or any other valuation as agreed in writing between the loan holder and the Company.

 

Interest expense associated with this loan for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020 was $60,000 and $165,000. Interest payable associated with this loan at December 31, 2020 was $165,000.

Paycheck Protection Program Loan

 

In May 2020, the Company signed a promissory note for $459,912 pursuant to the federal Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, which is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The loan is unsecured, bears interest of 1% per annum and a deferment period of 6 months. The loan is to be used primarily for payroll related costs, lease, and utility payments. The Company has applied for forgiveness and is awaiting a response for the whole loan amount in accordance with applicable law. If the loan is not forgiven, the Company will be obligated to repay the loan during a period of 2 years.

  

6.Related Party Transactions

 

At December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020 there was an outstanding loan to the Chief Technology Officer (“CTO”) of the Company of $20,000 and $18,000, respectively. The loan has an interest rate of 2% based on the Canada Revenue Agency’s prescribed rate for such advances and is denominated in Canadian dollars. During the three and nine months ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded interest income of $300 and $900, respectively. The remaining fluctuation in the balance from the prior year is due to changes in foreign exchange.

As approved by the stockholders of the Company at the annual meeting of stockholders held on October 5, 2020, the Company filed a certificate of amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended with the Secretary of State of Delaware to decrease the authorized number of shares of (i) common stock of the Company from 500,000,000 to 13,000,000 and (ii) preferred stock of the Company from 10,000,000 to 5,000,000.

 

Special Voting Preferred Share

 

In February 2015, the Company entered into a voting and exchange trust agreement (the “Trust Agreement”). Pursuant to the Trust Agreement, the Company issued one Special Voting Preferred Share to a Trustee, and the parties created a trust for the Trustee to hold the Special Voting Preferred Share for the benefit of the holders of the Exchangeable Shares of a subsidiary of the Company (the “Beneficiaries”). The Special Voting Preferred Share 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 Special Voting Preferred Share is not entitled to receive any dividends or to receive any assets of the Company upon liquidation and is not convertible into shares of common stock of the Company. The voting rights of the Special Voting Preferred Share will terminate pursuant to and in accordance with the Trust Agreement and the Special Voting Preferred Share will be automatically cancelled.

 

8.Stock-Based Compensation

 

Total stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $99,000 and $447,000, respectively. Total stock-based compensation expense for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was $719,000 and $1.4 million, respectively.

 

Bionik granted options to purchase 76,902 and 221,838 shares of common stock to employees during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Bionik granted options to purchase 341,190 shares of common stock to non-employees during the nine months ended December 31, 2019. There were no options granted to non-employees during the nine months ended December 31, 2020. Stock options granted to employees or non-employees typically vest over a 1 to 5 year period. 

10 

 

 

Performance Based Units (“PSUs”) granted to employees vest annually based on time and continued performance and the achievement of performance goals as determined by the board of directors.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the estimated grant date fair values for stock-based awards. The Black-Scholes option pricing model requires the input of various subjective assumptions, including the option’s expected life and the price volatility of the underlying stock. The Company’s assumptions do not include an estimated forfeiture rate.

  

The weighted-average grant date fair values of options granted to employees during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were $1.05 and $3.05, respectively. During the nine months ended December 31, 2019, 96,466 PSUs were granted with a weighted-average grant date fair value of $3.15. All grants awarded during the periods presented used the following assumptions:

 

  

Nine Months Ended
December 31,

 
   2020   2019 
Risk free interest rate   0.62%   1.59%
Expected term   7 years    7 years 
Dividend yield        
Expected volatility   114%   114%
Forfeiture rate   0%   0%

  

Option-pricing models require the input of various subjective assumptions, including the option’s expected life and the price volatility of the underlying stock. Bionik’s estimated expected stock price volatility is based on past grants that have been made. Bionik’s expected term of options granted during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was derived from looking at the Company’s exercise history of its awards granted. The risk-free rate for the expected term of the options is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of the grant.   

 

As of December 31, 2020, the total unrecognized compensation cost related to outstanding stock options and PSUs expected to vest was $595,000, which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted-average period of 1.94 years.

10.Commitments and Contingencies

 

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.

 

Commitments

 

On February 25, 2015, 1,753 common shares were issued to two former lenders connected with a $241,185 loan received and repaid during fiscal 2013. The common shares were valued at $210,323 based on the value of the concurrent private placement and recorded in stock-based compensation on the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss. As part of the consideration for the initial loan, the Company’s then-CTO and COO had transferred 2,098 common shares to the lenders. For contributing the common shares to the lenders, the Company intends to reimburse the former CTO and COO 2,134 common shares. As of December 31, 2020 these shares have not yet been issued.

 

In May 2020, the Company gave notice to its JV Partner, Ginger Capital Investment Holding, Ltd. That it was terminating the licensing and distribution agreements.

 

In connection with the Company’s April 2016 acquisition of Interactive Motion Technologies, Inc., the Company acquired a license agreement dated September 8, 2009, with a former director as a co-licenser, pursuant to which the Company is obligated to pay the former director and the co-licenser an aggregate royalty of 1% of sales based on patent #8,613,691 Dynamic Lower Limb Rehabilitation Robotic Apparatus and Method of Rehabilitating Human Gait). No sales have been made, as the technology under this patent has not been commercialized.

 

11.Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Accounting Standards Update 2020-06—Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity: simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Consequently, more convertible debt instruments will be reported as a single liability instrument and more convertible preferred stock as a single equity instrument with no separate accounting for embedded conversion features. The ASU removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception, which will permit more equity contracts to qualify for it. The ASU also simplifies the diluted earnings per share (EPS) calculation in certain areas. The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities that meet the definition of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filer, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2020-06 will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

Company Overview

 

Bionik Laboratories Corp. is a healthcare company focused on improving the quality of life of millions of people with neurological or mobility impairments by combining artificial intelligence and innovative robotics technology and data solutions to help individuals from hospital to home to regain mobility, enhance autonomy, and regain self- esteem.

 

The Company uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to make rehabilitation methods and processes smarter and more intuitive to deliver greater recovery for patients with neurological or mobility impairments. These technologies allow large amounts of data to be collected and processed in real-time, enabling appropriately challenging and individualized therapy during every treatment session. This is the foundation of the InMotion® therapy. The Company’s rehabilitation therapy robots are built on an artificial intelligence platform, measuring the position, the speed, and the acceleration of the patients’ arm 200 times per second. The artificial intelligence platform is designed to adapt in real time to the patient’s needs and progress while providing quantifiable feedback of a patient’s progress and performance, in a way that the Company believes a trained clinician cannot.

 

13 

 

Based on this foundational work, the Company has a portfolio of products and solutions focused on upper extremity rehabilitation for stroke and other mobility-impaired individuals, including InMotion® robots currently in the market. Additionally, we launched our new software platform, InMotion ConnectTM is providing the ability for hospital management to access remotely to management dashboards presenting the utilization data of each of their InMotion® robotic devices and their robotic devices productivity. Customized reporting capabilities in the platform focus on facility and organization measurement dashboards to support effective decision making for clinicians and for hospital management.

 

Currently, we receive revenues from the sale of our InMotion robots to our customers both in the U.S. and internationally. We also record revenues associated with our extended warranties that customers will purchase with the sale of our InMotion robots as well as from the sale of the InMotion ConnectTM hardware and the subscription fees associated with the utilization of the InMotion ConnectTM solution.

 

We currently sell our products directly or can introduce customers to a third-party finance company to lease at a monthly fee over the term or other fee structure for our products to hospitals, clinics, distribution companies and/or buying groups that supply those rehabilitation facilities.

 

Our strategic business focus is on the following key areas:

 

·Continuing to expand our distribution channels in the United States and internationally;

 

·Continue to enhance our InMotion Connect software with solutions that serve clinical rehabilitation providers; and

 

·Continue to drive efficiencies with our outsourced manufacturing partner to support the expected increase in product demand and introduction of new products.

 

We believe our business provides a platform for growth. We continue to make investments in our enhancements of our existing products and the future development of new products.

 

We currently hold an intellectual property portfolio that includes 5 U.S. patents and 2 U.S. patents pending, 5 of which are pending internationally, as well as other patents under development. We may file provisional patents from time to time, which may expire if we do not pursue full patents within 12 months of the filing date. Three provisional patents have recently been converted into full patents, pertaining to Bionik’s InMotion® Home™, InMotion® ARM/HAND and InMotion® Connect™ platform, each of which has been filed as a full patent prior to the 12-month provisional deadline. The provisional patents may not be filed as full patents and new provisional patents may be filed as the technology changes. Additionally, we hold exclusive licenses to three additional patents.

 

We have filed trademarks in the U.S. and European Union for InMotion®, InMotion® Home™, InMotion® Connect, InMotion® Pulse™, and InMotion® Insights™; the trademark for InMotion® is registered in the European Union and in the U.S., the trademark for InMotion® Connect™ is registered in the European Union and pending in the US, while InMotion® Home™, InMotion® Pulse™, and InMotion® Insights™ are pending in both jurisdictions. InMotion® Connect™ and InMotion® Insights™ were issued an allowance and are pending for final registration.

 

Business Developments

 

In December 2018, we entered into a Sale of Goods Agreement (the “Agreement”) with CHC Management Services, LLC, or Kindred, pursuant to which, among other things, Kindred agreed to purchase from us in a first phase a minimum of 21 of the Company’s InMotion® ARM Interactive Therapy Systems – a minimum of one for each of Kindred’s existing and soon-to-open affiliated inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and similar facilities described in the Agreement, and in a second phase a minimum of one InMotion® ARM Interactive Therapy System for each future inpatient rehabilitation facilities of Kindred, during the four-year minimum term of the Agreement. 21 InMotion® robots were sold in total to Kindred by March 31, 2019 and 1 robot, 22 Connect™ and 22 Pulse™ subscriptions were sold during the nine month period ended December 31, 2020.

 

In September 2019, we commenced an up to $7.0 million convertible note offering (previously set at $3.0 million), of which $1.6 million was raised through December 31, 2020. In addition, on March 23, 2020, we borrowed $2,000,000 evidenced by a term promissory note from an existing stockholder and lender of the Company.

 

On October 5, 2020 as approved by the stockholders of the Company at the annual meeting of stockholders held on October 5, 2020, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended with the Secretary of State of Delaware to decrease the authorized number of shares of (i) common stock of the Company from 500,000,000 to 13,000,000 and (ii) preferred stock of the Company from 10,000,000 to 5,000,000.

 

Covid-19 Pandemic

 

As a result of extended shutdowns of businesses around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a slowdown in our business as most of the capital expenditure programs of the healthcare facilities that make up our customer base have been put on hold or has been significantly curtailed. This, along with our typically long sales cycle, has affected our ability to generate revenues in recent months. As a result, we have taken steps to address the decrease in revenue, as follows:

  

14 

 

 

Effective April 1, 2020, we furloughed nine employees in the United States and temporarily laid-off one employee in Canada. Additionally, our senior management agreed to a salary deferral of between 30-50%. Our remaining employees in the U.S. received base salary reductions of between 30%-50%. In Canada, our remaining employees received a reduction in base salary and hours of 45%. As a result of obtaining the U.S. and Canadian government’s programs described below U.S. employees with salaries less than $100,000 annually were returned to full salary and with salaries exceeding $100,000 annually were increased to 75% of their normal base salary. As of December 31, 2020, all employees, including senior management, within the organization have now returned to their normal base salary.

·On May 6, 2020, our U.S. subsidiary received funding in the original principal amount of $459,912 pursuant to the federal Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, which is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. We are using the proceeds from this funding for eligible purposes, including to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest payments, lease payments, and utility payments. The loan was funded by Bank of America, N.A. pursuant to the terms of a Promissory Note dated as of May 1, 2020. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, we have applied for forgiveness for all of the loan in accordance with the applicable law and we await the decision of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

 

·Our Canada operations secured $93,000 of government financial relief under the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy, which is available monthly until March 2021, which was used to return the salaries of many of our Canadian non-management employees back to their full amount.

 

·The Company has reduced working on its research and development projects to focus only on the development of InMotion® Connect™.

The change in total revenues was attributable to a number of factors:

 

·The same number of robots were sold in the two periods shown, however the robot sold in the three months ended December 31, 2020 was sold to our South Korean distributor and therefore has a distributor pricing model compared to selling direct in the three months ended December 31, 2019. This revenue decreased from the units sold is offset with the increase in revenues in the other categories.
·The increase in our subscription sales is due to our 22 InMotion Connect™ Pulse™ solutions subscriptions that were sold to Kindred. This product was launched during the nine months ended December 31, 2020.
·Our service, extended warranty and other revenues were up 61% primarily due to our service offerings for our robots as well as additional extended warranties sold that are being recognized over the service period.

Total cost of revenues decreased $134,000, or 93%, to $10,000 for the 2020 period, as compared to $144,000 for the 2019 period. The decrease was associated with 2 robots being provided as upgrades at no sales value, in connection with a commitment made by the Company in the 2019 period. In the 2020 period, an adjustment was made to decrease the warranty reserve in conjunction with the lower number of units sold over the last 12 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased $156,000, or 32%, to $325,000 for the 2020 period, as compared to $481,000 for the 2019 period. The decrease was due to a $76,000 decrease in payroll and payroll related expenses as our headcount was reduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our sales and marketing efforts decreased $24,000 from expenses related to trade shows and other marketing efforts as the pandemic prevented any of these from happening in the field during the 2020 period and virtual events are much lower in cost. Installation expenses were down by $49,000 from the 2019 period due to a reduced number of robots installed at customer sites.

Impairment of goodwill & intangible assets (as a percentage of total revenues)   3,981%   --%          

 

Following the decline of Company sales associated with the global pandemic, we determined there are events and changes in circumstances that indicate the goodwill and other intangible assets are impaired. Accordingly, at December 31, 2020, we evaluated the ongoing value of our goodwill and other intangible assets. Based on this evaluation, we determined that the intangible assets were no longer recoverable and were in fact impaired and recorded an impairment charge of $379,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2020. Further, we determined that the goodwill with the carrying value of $11.1 million was impaired and recorded an impairment charge to the estimated fair value of $6.8 million in the three months ended December 31, 2020. Fair value was based on expected future cash flows using Level 3 inputs under ASC 820. The cash flows are those expected to be generated by the market participants, discounted at the weighted average cost of capital.

 

As noted in our significant accounting policies, we have one reporting unit and its carrying value was compared to its estimated fair value. At December 31, 2020, we estimated its fair value using an income approach. The income approach is based on the present value of future cash flows, which are derived from long term financial forecasts, and requires significant assumptions and judgement including among others, a discount rate and a terminal value.

 

The present value of future cash flows was determined by discounting estimated future cash flows, which included long-term growth rate of 3%, at a weighted average cost of capital (discount rate) of 27%, which considered the risk of achieving the projected cash flows, including the risk applicable to the reporting unit, industry and market as a whole.

 

There was no impairment charge in the three months ended December 31, 2019. Based on our significant accounting policy we monitor our intangible assets annually and more regularly as factors and other indicators warrant to determine if any impairment of these assets is needed.

Share-based compensation expense decreased $348,000, or 78%, to $99,000 for the 2020 period, as compared to $447,000 for the 2019 period. The decrease is associated with fewer options outstanding in the current year period compared to the prior year period due to the reduced headcount as well as a lower number of options vesting in the current period compared to the prior period.

The change in total revenues was attributable to a number of factors:

 

·Our product revenues decreased by $618,000, or 55%, for the nine months ended December 31, 2020 as compared to the nine months ended December 31, 2019 due to the decrease in units sold. The decrease is primarily driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, however our average selling price per unit has increased during the 2020 period as compared to the 2019 period.

 

·The increase in our subscription sales is due to our 22 InMotion Connect™ Pulse™ solutions subscriptions that were sold to Kindred as this product was launched during the nine months ended December 31, 2020.

 

·Our service, extended warranty and other revenues were up 53% primarily due to our service offerings for our robots as well as additional extended warranties sold that are being recognized over the service period.

Our sales and marketing efforts decreased $93,000 from expenses related to trade shows and other marketing efforts as the pandemic prevented any of these from happening in the field during the 2020 period. Commission expense decreased $81,000 due to the decrease in sales in the 2020 period compared to the 2019 period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have funded operations through the issuance of capital stock, loans, grants, and investment tax credits received from the Government of Canada. We require cash to pay our operating expenses, including research and development activities, fund working capital needs and make capital expenditures. At December 31, 2020, our cash and cash equivalents were $896,000. Our cash and cash equivalents are predominantly cash in operating accounts.

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2020, we received $1.5 million, in addition to a $70,000 previously loaned to us, pursuant to a $7.0 million convertible note offering. The convertible notes bear interest at a fixed rate at 1% per month. The convertible loans will be convertible into equity of our common stock upon the following events:

 

(i)On the March 31, 2021 maturity date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the convertible note will be converted into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $8.55 per shares in the event of an investment on or prior to December 31, 2019, and $9.50 per share in the event of an investment after December 31, 2019 (the “Conversion Price”).

  

(ii)Upon a change of control transaction prior to the maturity date, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest under the convertible notes would, at the election of the holders of a majority of the outstanding principal of the loans under the offering, be either (i) payable upon demand as of the closing of such change of control transaction or (ii) convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to such change of control transaction at a price per share equal to the lesser of (x) the Conversion Price or (y) the per share consideration to be received by the holders of the common stock in such change of control transaction.

 

In March 2020, we received a $2.0 million loan from an existing shareholder. The promissory note bears interest at a fixed rate of 1% per month and has a maturity date of the earlier of (i) March 31, 2022 and (ii) the date of receipt of a minimum of $5.0 million from a “Subsequent Financing.” The accrued interest shall be payable in cash commencing on March 31, 2021 with the quarterly payments accrued for the first three payment dates (3-month, 6-month and 9-month anniversaries of the issue date), and then quarterly thereafter. The remaining half of the interest accrued will be paid upon the maturity date. The loan is repayable or convertible to common shares at the loan holder’s option on March 31, 2022 at a price per share equal to the price per share of our then most recent capital raise or debt conversion, or any other valuation as agreed in writing between the loan holder and us.

 

Additionally, in May 2020 we received funding of $459,912 pursuant to the federal Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. The loan is unsecured, bears interest of 1% per annum and a deferment period of 6 months. The loan is to be used primarily for payroll related costs, lease, and utility payments. We have applied for forgiveness for the whole loan in accordance with applicable law. If the loan is not forgiven, we will be obligated to repay the loan during the period of 2 years.

 

Based on our current burn rate, we need to raise additional capital in the short term to fund operations and meet expected future liquidity requirements, as well as to repay our remaining existing indebtedness (including our funding from the CARES Act, if and to the extent the loan is not forgiven), or we will be required to curtail or terminate some or all of our product lines or our operations. We are continuously in discussions to raise additional capital, which may include or be a combination of convertible or term loans and equity which, if successful, will enable us to continue operations based on our current burn rate, for the next 12 months; however, we cannot give any assurance at this time that we will successfully raise all or some of such capital or any other capital.

 

There can be no assurance that necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available on terms acceptable to us, in which case we may be unable to meet our obligations or fully implement our business plan, if at all. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Additionally, we will need additional funds to respond to business opportunities including potential acquisitions of complementary technologies, protect our intellectual property, develop new lines of business, and enhance our operating infrastructure. While we may need to seek additional funding for any 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 will also seek additional funds through arrangements with collaborators or other third parties. However, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to businesses and the investing landscape around the world. Therefore, there can be no assurance that our plans will be successful. 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 our product lines or our operations.

 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and actions taken to slow its spread, the global credit and financial markets have experienced extreme volatility, including diminished liquidity and credit availability, declines in consumer confidence, declines in economic growth, increases in unemployment rates and uncertainty about economic stability. There can be no assurance that further deterioration in credit and financial markets and confidence in economic conditions will not occur. If equity and credit markets deteriorate, it may make any necessary debt or equity financing more difficult to obtain, more costly and/or more dilutive. Any of these actions could materially harm our business, results of operations and future prospects.

Cash Flows

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $3.3 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2020, and resulted primarily from $12.6 million in net loss offset by approximately $1.1 million in depreciation and amortization, interest expense and stock-based compensation expense as well as a $7.2 million in impairment of our goodwill and intangible assets for the period. Net changes in working capital items increased cash from operating activities by approximately $1.0 million, primarily related to decreases in accounts receivable associated with payments collected from our customers and a decrease in our inventory associated with product shipments during the period. There was no net cash used in or provided by investing activities for the 2020 period. Net cash provided by financing activities during the nine months ended December 31, 2020 was $2.0 million, related to proceeds received from the convertible loans and PPP loans.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $7.5 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2019, and resulted primarily from the $8.5 million of net loss offset by $1.8 million in depreciation and amortization, interest expense and stock-based compensation expense for the period, along with a $168,000 increase to our bad debt expense associated with the termination of our Chinese JV. Net changes in working capital items decreased cash from operating activities by $1.0 million, primarily related to increases in inventory and prepaid expenses and decreases in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities, partially offset by decreases in our accounts receivable associated with cash collection efforts with our customers. Net cash used in investing activities was $96,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2019, which consisted of purchases of equipment. Net cash provided by financing activities during the nine months ended December 31, 2019 was $9.1 million, relating to proceeds received from convertible loans.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations set forth above are based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2020. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates and assumptions form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses, that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. A discussion of our critical accounting policies and the related judgments and estimates affecting the preparation of our consolidated financial statements is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies as of December 31, 2020.

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 effective.
