The Company and its Operations
Bionik Laboratories Corp. (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. 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 on September 24, 2014.
On February 26, 2015, the Company entered into a Share Exchange Agreement and related transactions whereby it acquired Bionik Laboratories Inc., a Canadian Corporation (“Bionik Canada”), and Bionik Canada issued 333,334 Exchangeable Shares, representing a 3.14 exchange ratio, for 100% of the then outstanding common shares of Bionik Canada (the “Merger”). The Exchangeable Shares are exchangeable at the option of the holder, each into one share of the common stock of the Company. In addition, the Company issued one share of its Special Voting Preferred Stock (Note 10).
On April 21, 2016, the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares and, accordingly, all assets and liabilities of Interactive Motion Technologies, Inc. (“IMT”), a Boston, Massachusetts-based global pioneer and leader in providing effective robotic products for neurorehabilitation, pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) dated March 1, 2016, with IMT, Hermano Igo Krebs, and Bionik Mergerco Inc., a Massachusetts corporation and the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary (Bionik Mergeco). The merger agreement provided for the merger of Bionik Mergerco with and into IMT, with IMT surviving the merger as the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary which was renamed Bionik, Inc. In return for acquiring IMT, IMT shareholders received an aggregate of 157,667 shares of the Company’s common stock.

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.
The Company’s principal offices are located at 483 Bay Street, N105, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5G 2C9 and its U.S. address is 80 Coolidge Hill Road, Watertown, MA. USA 02472.
As at December 31, 2018, the Company had a working capital deficit of ($2,236,228) (March 31, 2018 – ($6,711,941)) and an accumulated deficit of ($42,910,590) (March 31, 2018 – ($35,776,340)), and the Company incurred a net loss and comprehensive loss of ($2,384,163) for the three month period ended December 31, 2018 (December 31, 2017 – ($2,580,759)) and ($7,127,966) for the nine month period ended December 31, 2018 (December 31, 2017 – ($8,436,636)).
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, however the Company believes it has the support of its major shareholders, who have previously provided convertible loans to meet the Company’s cash flow needs and to continue as a going concern. The Company hopes to raise sufficient cash in the next three months to meet the Company’s anticipated cash requirements for the 12 months thereafter. Sales of additional equity or equity-linked 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 the forgoing, or combination thereof, to meet the Company’s anticipated cash requirements for the next 12 months; however, if these conditions are not achieved, this will raise significant doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying consolidated interim financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible effects of recoverability and reclassification of assets or amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
All adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, considered necessary for fair presentation have been included in these condensed consolidated interim financial statements.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
