NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

 

Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (the “Company”) manufactures high water content, electron beam cross-linked, aqueous polymer hydrogels, or gels, used for wound care, medical diagnostics, transdermal drug delivery and cosmetics. The Company believes that it is one of the leading manufacturers of high performance gels in the United States. The Company specializes in custom gels by capitalizing on proprietary manufacturing technologies. The Company has, historically, served as a contract manufacturer, supplying its gels to third parties who incorporate them into their own products.

 

Recent Developments

 

On May 7, 2018, the Company completed its previously announced Asset Sale Transaction (the “AST”) with Celularity, Inc. (“Celularity”), pursuant to which the Company sold substantially all of its assets to Celularity, including certain assets comprising its MIST, Biovance and Interfyl Product Lines (the “Purchased Assets”). As consideration for the Purchased Assets, Celularity paid $29.0 million to the Company in cash. No debt or significant liabilities were assumed by Celularity in the AST. Under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”), the Company retained certain specified assets, including, among other things, cash, accounts receivable, and its hydrogel contract manufacturing business, including its SilverSeal and Hydress product lines. Approximately $14.8 million of the consideration received from Celularity was used to pay down in full all outstanding debt and related costs owed to Perceptive Credit Holdings LP (“Perceptive”).

 

The transactions contemplated by the APA were approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock on April 27, 2018.

  

The Company’s operations sold under the APA have been reclassified to discontinued operations in the second quarter of 2018, when the shareholders of the Company approved the sale. The AST was completed on May 7, 2018.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this report are unaudited. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2018 and results of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. While management believes that the disclosures presented are adequate to make the information not misleading, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in the Company’s latest year-end financial statements, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 Annual Report”).  The results of the Company’s operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for any other interim period or for the full year.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, AquaMed Technologies, Inc. All significant inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassifications did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations as previously reported. 

 

Discontinued Operations

 

In addition to the aforementioned AST with Celularity, effective August 31, 2017 the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“the Argentum Purchase Agreement”) with Argentum Medical, LLC. (“Argentum”) whereby the Company agreed to sell to Argentum all of the Company’s rights, including (i) all distribution rights, exclusivity rights, intellectual property rights and marketing rights to the TheraBond product line and (ii) the unsold inventory of TheraBond products and work in process previously purchased by the Company in existence as of the closing, which occurred upon execution and delivery of the Argentum Purchase Agreement. In consideration for the sale of the TheraBond product line and the unsold TheraBond inventory to Argentum by the Company, Argentum agreed to pay (i) $3.6 million for the TheraBond product line and certain other agreements between the parties and (ii) up to $0.1 million for the unsold TheraBond inventory upon the Company’s completion of its obligations to deliver all remaining and qualifying unsold TheraBond inventory, as specified in the Argentum Purchase Agreement. Of the $3.6 million of consideration, $0.3 million was initially deposited in an indemnity escrow account under standard terms and conditions. This amount is classified under current assets of discontinued operations on the Company’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2017. As of June 30, 2018, $0.1 million was paid from the escrow, and $0.2 million remains in the indemnity escrow account under standard terms and conditions; classified under current assets of discontinued operations on the Company’s balance sheet.

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the 2017 Annual Report. Since the date of the 2017 Annual Report, there have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies. The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes.  These estimates and assumptions include valuing equity securities and derivative financial instruments issued in financing transactions, allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory reserves, deferred taxes and related valuation allowances. Actual results could differ from the estimates.

 

Recent Accounting Principles

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, “Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting”. The amendments in this update is to maintain or improve the usefulness of the information provided to the users of financial statements while reducing cost and complexity in financial reporting. The areas for simplification in this Update involve several aspects of the accounting for nonemployee share-based payment transactions resulting from expanding the scope of Topic 718, to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. Some of the areas for simplification apply only to nonpublic entities. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect that this guidance will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-02, “Income Statement—Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”. The amendments in this Update allow a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Consequently, the amendments eliminate the stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and will improve the usefulness of information reported to financial statement users. However, because the amendments only relate to the reclassification of the income tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the underlying guidance that requires that the effect of a change in tax laws or rates be included in income from continuing operations is not affected. The amendments in this Update also require certain disclosures about stranded tax effects. The amendments in this update are effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect that this guidance will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

2. Going Concern

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applicable to a going concern that contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

The Company has experienced recurring losses since its inception. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company incurred a net loss of $6.4 million, utilized $7.5 million in cash from operations and had an accumulated deficit of $156.4 million. These factors raised substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Upon closing the APA, the Company received gross proceeds of $29.0 million and part of the proceeds, $14.8 million, were utilized to satisfy its obligations under the Credit Agreement and Guaranty (the “CAG”) with Perceptive. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had a cash balance of approximately $11.0 million.

 

Given the Company’s current cash position and reduced cash burn, the Company believes substantial doubt has been mitigated and it has sufficient resources to support its planned operations for a year from the date these financial statements are issued.

 

3. Revenue Recognition

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC 606”). The core principle of ASC 606 requires that an entity recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. ASC 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than required under existing accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation.

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 for all applicable contracts using the modified retrospective method, which would have required a cumulative-effect adjustment, if any, as of the date of adoption. The adoption of ASC 606 did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as of the date of adoption. As a result, a cumulative-effect adjustment was not required.

 

The Company recognizes revenue predominately from one type of revenue, contract manufacturing and recognizes an immaterial amount from the sale of products. Revenue from both contract manufacturing and products is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer. To achieve this core principle, the Company applies the following five steps:

 

Step 1 – Identify the Contract with the Customer – A contract exists when (a) the parties to the contract have approved the contract and are committed to perform their respective obligations, (b) the entity can identify each party’s rights regarding the goods or services to be transferred, (c) the entity can identify the payment terms for the goods or services to be transferred, (d) the contract has commercial substance and it is probable that the entity will collect substantially all of the consideration to which it will be entitled in exchange for the goods or services that will be transferred to the customer.

 

Step 2 – Identify Performance Obligations in the Contract – Upon execution of a contract, the Company identifies as performance obligations each promise to transfer to the customer either (a) goods or services that are distinct or (b) a series of distinct goods or services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer. To the extent a contract includes multiple promised goods or services, the Company must apply judgement to determine whether the goods or services are capable of being distinct within the context of the contract. If these criteria are not met, the goods or services are accounted for as a combined performance obligation.

 

Step 3 – Determine the Transaction Price – The transaction price is determined based on the consideration to which the Company will be entitled in exchange for transferring products or services to the customer. Generally, all contracts include fixed consideration. If a contract did include variable consideration, the Company would determine the amount of variable consideration that should be included in the transaction price based on expected value method. Variable consideration would be included in the transaction price, if in the Company’s judgement, it is probable that a significant future reversal of cumulative revenue under the contract would not occur.

 

Step 4 – Allocate the Transaction Price – After the transaction price has been determined, the next step is to allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract. If the contract only has one performance obligation, the entire transaction price will be applied to that obligation. If the contract has multiple performance obligations, the transaction price is allocated to the performance obligations based on the relative standalone selling price (SSP) at contract inception.

 

  9  

 

 

Step 5 – Satisfaction of the Performance Obligations (and Recognize Revenue) – When an asset is transferred, and the customer obtains control of the asset (or the services are rendered), the Company recognizes revenue. At contract inception, the Company determines if each performance obligation is satisfied at a point in time or over time. Revenue from both product sales and contract manufacturing is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer.

 

Disaggregation of Revenue

 

The Company recognizes revenue predominately from contract manufacturing and recognizes an immaterial amount from products. Revenue from both products and contract manufacturing is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer.

 

As of June 30, 2018, or December 31, 2017, the Company did not have any contract assets or contract liabilities from contracts with customers. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, there was no revenue recognized from performance obligations satisfied (or partially satisfied) in previous periods. As of June 30, 2018, there were no remaining performance obligations that the Company had not satisfied.

 

4. Net Loss Per Common Share

 

Basic loss per share data for each period presented is computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each such period. Diluted loss per share data is computed using the weighted-average number of common and dilutive common-equivalent shares outstanding during each period. Dilutive common-equivalent shares consist of: (a) shares that would be issued upon the exercise of stock options and warrants, computed using the treasury stock method; and (b) shares of non-vested restricted stock.

 

The following securities are excluded from the calculation of weighted average dilutive common shares because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive:

 

    As of June 30,  
    2018     2017  
Stock options     706,666       921,050  
Warrants     400,307       517,167  
Non-vested restricted stock     20,000       261,603

7. Debt

 

Senior Secured Term Loan Facility

 

On May 29, 2015, the Company entered into the CAG with Perceptive Credit Opportunities Fund, L.P. The CAG provided a senior secured term loan in a single borrowing to the Company in the principal amount of $15.5 million.

 

On March 13, 2018, the Company, AquaMed Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and Perceptive entered into an Amendment Agreement, pursuant to which the parties agreed to certain amendments and modifications to the terms of the CAG. The Amendment Agreement provided for, an additional bridge term loan to the Company in the aggregate principal amount of $2.0 million pursuant to a Bridge Loan Note (“BLN”). Under the Amendment Agreement, the Company agreed to pay an upfront fee of $0.25 million and all fees, costs and expenses payable pursuant to the CAG (including reasonable attorney’s fees of Perceptive). The BLN bore interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the greater of (x) LIBOR and (y) 1%, plus (ii) an applicable margin of 9.75%. The BLN matured on the earlier of (i) May 7, 2018 and (ii) the closing date in connection with the APA.

 

On May 7, 2018, the Company paid approximately $14.8 million in full satisfaction of all debt obligations due Perceptive.

 

8. Commitments and Contingencies

 

License Agreement with Noble Fiber Technologies, LLC

 

On July 15, 2011, the Company entered into a license agreement with Noble Fiber Technologies, LLC, whereby the Company has the exclusive right and license to manufacture and distribute “SilverSeal Hydrogel Wound Dressings” and “SilverSeal Hydrocolloid Wound Dressings”. The license is granted for ten years with an option to be extended for consecutive renewal periods of two years after the initial term. Royalties are to be paid equal to 9.75% of net sales of licensed products. Total royalties, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 were nominal.

Litigation, Claims and Assessments

 

From time to time, the Company may become involved in lawsuits, investigations and claims that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company believes it has meritorious defenses against all pending claims and intends to vigorously pursue them. While it is not possible to predict or determine the outcomes of any pending actions, the Company believes the amount of liability, if any, with respect to such actions, would not materially affect its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

  

On February 22, 2018, a putative stockholder class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against the Company and each member of the Board, captioned Ronald Cresta, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. Alliqua BioMedical Inc., David Johnson, Joseph M. Leone, Gary Restani, Jeffrey Sklar and Mark Wagner. The complaint alleges, among other things, that the Company and the Board violated federal securities laws and regulations by soliciting stockholder votes in connection with the AST through a proxy statement that omits material facts necessary to make the statements therein not false or misleading. The complaint seeks, among other things, to enjoin the Company and the Board from conducting the stockholder vote on the AST unless and until the allegedly omitted material information is disclosed to the Company’s stockholders, damages allegedly suffered by the plaintiffs as a result of the asserted omissions, as well as related attorneys’ fees and expenses.

 

On April 4, 2018, the court approved the parties’ stipulation and proposed order to withdraw the motion for preliminary injunction and dismiss the action and the case was closed. The court retained jurisdiction of the action solely for determining any potential fee application if the parties are unable to reach agreement and a fee application becomes necessary.

 

9. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

On May 7, 2018, in connection with the closing of the sale under the APA of substantially all of the Company’s assets to Cellularity, which triggered certain change in control provisions of the Company’s equity plans, all unvested and outstanding options and restricted stock awards under the 2011 Plan and 2014 Plan became vested and exercisable.

 

As a result, a summary of the Company’s outstanding and exercisable options as of June 30, 2018 was as follows (in thousands, except per share data):

For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recognized $1.0 million and $0.4 million of stock-based compensation expense, of which, $0.009 million and $0.015 million is included in cost of revenues and $1.0 million and $0.4 million is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recognized $0.9 million and $0.9 million of stock-based compensation expense, of which, $0.02 million and $0.026 million is included in cost of revenues and $0.9 million and $0.9 million is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations, respectively. As of June 30, 2018, there was $0.02 million of unrecognized stock-based compensation expense which will be amortized over a weighted average period of 0.3 years.

Reverse Stock Split

 

The Company effected a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock on October 5, 2017. The accompanying consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes to the consolidated financial statements give retroactive effect to the reverse stock split for all periods presented. The shares of common stock retained a par value of $0.001 per share.

 

10. Related Party

 

In November 2015, the Company entered into a manufacturing supply agreement with a company where a Company director was then a member of the Board of Directors. During the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company incurred costs of approximately $0.07 million and $0.1 million, respectively, from this vendor. During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company incurred costs of approximately $0.26 million and $0.26 million, respectively. Approximately $0 and $0.1 million is included in accounts payable related to this related party as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.

 

11. Fair Value Measurement

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon selling an asset or the price paid to transfer a liability on the measurement date. It focuses on the exit price in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between willing market participants. A three-tier fair value hierarchy is established as a basis for considering such assumptions and for inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair values are as follows:

 

Level 1: Observable prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
   
Level 2: Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
   
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities.

 

Warrant Liabilities

 

On June 30, 2018, the Company recomputed the fair value of its warrant liability of outstanding warrants to purchase an aggregate of 210,000 shares of common stock as $164,000 using the Binomial option pricing model (Level 3 inputs) using the following assumptions: expected volatility of 79.54% risk-free rate of 2.68%, expected term of 3.58 years, and expected dividends of 0.00%. The Company recorded a loss on the change in fair value of these warrant liabilities of $15,000 and $34,000 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively.

 

Warrants that contain exercise reset provisions and contingent consideration liabilities are Level 3 derivative liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis using pricing models for which at least one significant assumption is unobservable as defined in ASC 820. The fair value of contingent consideration liabilities that are classified as Level 3 were estimated using a discounted cash flow technique with significant inputs that are not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 fair value measurement as defined in ASC 820. The significant inputs in the Level 3 measurement not supported by market activity include the probability assessments of expected future cash flows related to the acquisitions, appropriately discounted considering the uncertainties associated with the obligation, and as calculated in accordance with the terms of the acquisition agreements. The development and determination of the unobservable inputs for Level 3 fair value measurements and the fair value calculations are the responsibility of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and are approved by the Chief Executive Officer.

12. Income Taxes

 

In accordance with ASC 740-270, Income Taxes – Interim Reporting , the Company is required at the end of each interim period to determine the best estimate of its annual effective tax rate and apply that rate to year-to-date ordinary income or loss. The resulting tax expense (or benefit) is adjusted for the tax effect of specific events, if any, required to be discretely recognized in the interim period as they occur. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recorded $0.5 million and immaterial tax expense (or benefit), respectively. The gain on sale of assets to Celularity, in the period ended June 30, 2018, resulted in current state tax expense, primarily due to limitations on the use of net operating loss carryforwards in certain state jurisdictions. The Company has not recorded net deferred tax assets as of June 30, 2018 or December 31, 2017 because it maintained a full valuation allowance against all material deferred tax assets, and management has determined that it is more likely than not that the Company will be unable to realize those future benefits. The Company’s effective tax rate differs from the statutory rates of 21% and 34% as of June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, due to losses for which no future benefit is expected. As of June 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, the Company had no uncertain tax positions recorded in its consolidate balance sheets.

  

  14  

 

 

The United States enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Act”) on December 22, 2017, most provisions of which took effect in years beginning after December 31, 2017. The Act made substantial changes to U.S. taxation of corporations, including a reduction in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate from 34% to 21% and changes to limitations on the deductibility of executive compensation. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in law or tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. 

 

After the enactment of the Act, the SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”) to address the application of U.S. GAAP in situations when a registrant does not have the necessary information available, prepared, or analyzed (including computations) in reasonable detail to complete the accounting for certain income tax effects of the Act. In our financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2017, we calculated an estimate of the impact of the Act related to the remeasurement of our net U.S. deferred tax asset due to the change in U.S. federal corporate income tax rate.   The provisional amount recorded was deferred tax expense of $14.6 million, but which was fully and equally offset by a deferred tax benefit related to a corresponding reduction in our valuation allowance.  In addition, due to changes in executive compensation rules pursuant to the Act, the Company determined that approximately $1.3 million of deferred tax asset for stock compensation may not be realizable. The Company had previously recorded a valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset so this adjustment had no impact on the financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2017. The Company has not adjusted the provisional amounts in these financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2018, but we expect to complete this analysis within the one-year measurement period provided by SAB 118.

 

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes above.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements,” which include information relating to future events, future financial performance, strategies, expectations, competitive environment and regulation. Words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “estimate,” and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, identify forward-looking statements.

We believe that we are one of the leading manufacturers of high performance gels in the United States. We specialize in custom gels by capitalizing on proprietary manufacturing technologies. We have historically served as a contract manufacturer, supplying our gels to third parties who incorporate them into their own products. Our contract manufacturing business provides custom hydrogels to the OEM market.

 

Recent Events

 

Completion of the Asset Sale Transaction with Celularity

 

On May 7, 2018, we completed the previously announced sale of substantially all of our assets (the “AST”) to Celularity, Inc. (“Celularity”), including certain assets comprising its MIST, Biovance and Interfyl product lines (the “Purchased Assets”) pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”), dated January 5, 2018 with Celularity. As consideration for the Purchased Assets, Celularity paid a purchase price of $29.0 million in cash. No debt or significant liabilities were assumed by Celularity.

 

Under the terms of the APA, we retained certain specified assets, including, among other things, cash, accounts receivable and our hydrogel contract manufacturing business, including our SilverSeal and Hydress product lines.  

 

In connection with the completion of the AST, we terminated our Credit Agreement and Guaranty (the “Credit Agreement”), dated as of May 29, 2015, as amended, by and among us, AquaMed Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of us (“Guarantor”), and Perceptive Credit Holdings LP (“Perceptive”). Additionally, we terminated the related Pledge and Security Agreement, dated as of May 29, 2015, by and among us, Guarantor and Perceptive. The Credit Agreement provided for a senior secured term loan in a single borrowing to us in the initial principal amount of approximately $15.5 million, of which approximately $12.0 million remained outstanding on the termination date. The full unpaid principal amount of the term loan and associated fees were paid off.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The AST was completed on May 7, 2018. As consideration for the Purchased Assets, Celularity paid consideration to us of $29.0 million in cash. No debt or significant liabilities were assumed by Celularity in the AST. A portion of the proceeds, approximately $14.8 million, was used to extinguish our debt obligations and associated costs to Perceptive under the Credit Agreement. As of June 30, 2018, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling approximately $11.0 million compared to $2.2 million at December 31, 2017.  

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $7.5 million and $8.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Net cash provided in investing activities was $29.2 million and net cash used in investing activities was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, and 2017, respectively. Cash provided by investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2018 was primarily due to the consideration received from Celularity in connection with the AST. Cash used by investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2017 included $0.35 million provided to Soluble Systems, LLC as a bridge loan and $0.08 million in purchases of improvements and equipment.

 

Net cash used in financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2018 consisted of $14.8 million in the payment of obligations owed to Perceptive under the Credit Agreement, offset by $1.7 received from proceeds of a Bridge Loan Note. Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 consisted of $5.9 million of net proceeds received from the issuance of our common stock offset by $0.7 million utilized to pay the cash portion of the contingent consideration related to the Celleration acquisition.

 

  16  

 

 

At June 30, 2018, current assets totaled $13.0 million and current liabilities totaled $3.2 million, as compared to current assets totaling $7.5 million and current liabilities totaling $17.0 million at December 31, 2017. As a result, we had working capital of $9.8 million at June 30, 2018 compared to working capital deficit of $9.5 million at December 31, 2017.

 

Given our current cash position and reduced cash burn, we believe substantial doubt has been mitigated and we have sufficient resources to support our planned operations for a year from the date these financial statements are issued.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended June 30, 2018 Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2017

 

Our MIST, Biovance and Interfyl product lines sold under the APA and have been reclassified to discontinued operations.

 

Revenues, net . For the three months ended June 30, 2018 revenues increased by $0.2 million, or 40%, to $0.9 million from $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in our overall revenue was due to an increase in orders from contract manufacturing customers.

   

Gross profit . Our gross profit was $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to gross profit of $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.  The improved results for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to the greater volume of orders fulfilled for our contract manufacturing customers and a stricter emphasis on operating efficiency. Gross margin was approximately 31% for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Gross margin was approximately 17% for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Selling, general and administrative expenses . The following table highlights selling, general and administrative expenses by type for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 (in thousands):

 

    Three Months Ended June 30,  
    2018     2017  
Selling, general and administrative expenses                
Compensation and benefits   $ 222     $ 460

Depreciation and amortization     12       6  
Other expenses and professional fees     630       839  
Total selling, general and administrative expenses   $ 1,275     $ 1,407  

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.1 million to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses is attributable to our organizational restructuring post the completion of the AST and continued focus on operating expenditures.

 

Compensation and benefits decreased by $0.2 million to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The decrease in compensation and benefits was primarily due to the decrease in the average number of full-time employees in 2018 compared to 2017, due to the completion of the AST.

 

Stock-based compensation increased by $0.3 million, to $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in stock-based compensation is primarily due to the vesting for stock-based compensation for terminated employees’ unvested restricted stock awards resulting from the completion of the AST.

 

Other expenses and professional fees decreased by $0.2 million to $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Other selling, general and administrative expenses consist of costs associated with our selling efforts and general management, including information technology, travel, training and recruiting. The decrease is due to lower legal and consulting fees.

 

Business development costs. During the three months ended June 30, 2018, we incurred $0.2 million in costs related to business development opportunities. These costs were mainly due to professional fees, including accounting, legal and consulting fees. During the three months ended June 30, 2017 we did not incur any business development costs.

 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2018 Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2017

Revenues, net . For the six months ended June 30, 2018 revenues increased by $0.5 million, or 65%, to $1.4 million from $0.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in our overall revenue was due to an increase in orders fulfilled for our contract manufacturing customers.

 

Gross profit . Our gross profit was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to gross loss of $0.08 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The improved results for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017 was primarily due to the greater volume of contract manufacturing sales and a stricter emphasis on operating efficiency. Gross margin was approximately 28% for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Gross margin was approximately negative 9% for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not required.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures .

 

As of June 30, 2018, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (“Disclosure Controls”), as defined by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Disclosure Controls evaluation was done under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives. Based upon this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer have concluded that our Disclosure Controls and Procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of June 30, 2018.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, the Company may become involved in lawsuits, investigations and claims that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company believes it has meritorious defenses against all pending claims and intends to vigorously pursue them. While it is not possible to predict or determine the outcomes of any pending actions, the Company believes the amount of liability, if any, with respect to such actions, would not materially affect its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

On February 22, 2018, a putative stockholder class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against the Company and each member of the Board, captioned Ronald Cresta, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated vs. Alliqua BioMedical Inc., David Johnson, Joseph M. Leone, Gary Restani, Jeffrey Sklar and Mark Wagner. The complaint alleged, among other things, that the Company and the Board violated federal securities laws and regulations by soliciting stockholder votes in connection with the Asset Sale Transaction through a proxy statement that omits material facts necessary to make the statements therein not false or misleading. The complaint sought, among other things, to enjoin the Company and the Board from conducting the stockholder vote on the Asset Sale Transaction unless and until the allegedly omitted material information was disclosed to the Company’s stockholders, damages allegedly suffered by the plaintiffs as a result of the asserted omissions, as well as related attorneys’ fees and expenses.

 

On April 4, 2018, the court approved the parties’ stipulation and proposed order to withdraw the motion for preliminary injunction and dismiss the action and the case was closed. The court retained jurisdiction of the action solely for determining any potential fee application if the parties are unable to reach agreement and a fee application becomes necessary.
