During the fiscal year, holders of the common stock and exchangeable shares of the Company approved, through a majority shareholder vote, an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation authorizing the Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split of Bionik’s common stock and exchangeable shares at a ratio up to one-to-one hundred and fifty.
On October 29, 2018, the Company effected a reverse stock split and thereafter Bionik’s common stock began trading on the OTCQB market on a one-for-one hundred and fifty (1:150) split-adjusted basis. All owners of record on October 29, 2018 received one issued and outstanding share of Bionik common stock or exchangeable share in exchange for one hundred and fifty issued and outstanding shares of Bionik common stock or Bionik exchangeable stock. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the reverse stock split. All fractional shares created by the one-for-one hundred and fifty reverse split were rounded up to the next whole share. The reverse stock split had no impact on the par value per share of Bionik common stock, which remains at $0.001. All current and prior period amounts related to shares, share prices and earnings per share, presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the accompanying Notes have been restated to give retrospective presentation for the reverse stock split.
The preparation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. 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 March 31, 2020 and through the date of this report filing.
The entire disclosure for the nature of an entity's business, major products or services, principal markets including location, and the relative importance of its operations in each business and the basis for the determination, including but not limited to, assets, revenues, or earnings. For an entity that has not commenced principal operations, disclosures about the risks and uncertainties related to the activities in which the entity is currently engaged and an understanding of what those activities are being directed toward.
