CHAMPIONS ONCOLOGY, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
Note 1. Organization, Use of Estimates and Basis of Presentation
 
Champions Oncology, Inc. (the “Company”) is engaged in an end-to-end range of research and development technology solutions and services to improve the development and use of oncology drugs. The Company’s TumorGraft Technology Platform is a novel approach to personalizing cancer care based upon the implantation of human tumors in immune-deficient mice. The Company uses this technology, in conjunction with related services, to offer solutions for two consumer groups: Translational Oncology Solutions (“TOS”) and Personalized Oncology Solutions (“POS”). The Company’s TOS business offers a technology platform to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies using proprietary TumorGraft studies, which the Company believes may be predictive of how drugs may perform in clinical settings. POS assists physicians in developing personalized treatment options for their cancer patients through tumor specific data obtained from drug panels and related personalized oncology services.
 
The Company has two operating subsidiaries: Champions Oncology (Israel), Limited and Champions Biotechnology U.K., Limited. For the three and six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, there were no revenues earned by these subsidiaries.
 
The Company’s foreign subsidiaries functional currency is the U.S. dollar. Transaction gains and losses are recognized in earnings. The Company is subject to foreign exchange rate fluctuations in connection with the Company’s international operations.
 
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC. All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated. Certain information related to the Company’s organization, significant accounting policies and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, has been condensed or omitted. The accounting policies followed in the preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with those followed in the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2019, as filed on Form 10-K, except effective May 1, 2019, the Company accounts for its leases under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 842, Leases. In the opinion of management, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all material adjustments necessary to fairly state our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented and the presentations and disclosures herein are adequate when read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2019. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for a full fiscal year.
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Note 2. Significant Accounting Policies

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers only those investments which are highly liquid, readily convertible to cash, and with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. As of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019 the Company had no cash equivalents.

Liquidity
 
Our liquidity needs have typically arisen from the funding of our research and development programs and the launch of new products, working capital requirements, and other strategic initiatives. In the past, we have met these cash requirements through our cash, working capital management, proceeds from certain private placements and public offerings of our securities and sales of products and services. For the six months ended October 31, 2019, the Company had a net loss of approximately $334,000 and cash flow from operations of $81,000. For the three months ended October 31, 2019, the Company had net income of $307,000 and cash flow from operations of $360,000. As of October 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $71.0 million, a working capital deficit of $1.2 million and cash of $2.8 million. We believe that our cash on hand, together with expected positive cash flows from operations for fiscal year 2020, are adequate to fund operations through at least 12 months from the filing of this 10-Q. Should the Company be required to raise additional capital, there can be no assurance that management would be successful in raising such capital on terms acceptable to us, if at all.

Leases

Effective May 1, 2019, the Company accounts for its leases under ASC Topic 842, Leases. Under this guidance, arrangements meeting the definition of a lease are classified as operating or financing leases and are recorded on the consolidated balance sheet as both a right-of-use asset and lease liability, calculated by discounting fixed lease payments over the lease term at the rate implicit in the lease or the Company’s incremental borrowing rate. As the Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. Lease liabilities are increased by interest and reduced by payments each period, and the right-of-use asset is amortized over the lease term. For operating leases, interest on the lease liability and the amortization of the right-of-use asset result in straight-line rent expense over the lease term. The Company continues to account for leases in the prior period financial statements in accordance with ASC Topic 840.

Earnings Per Share
 
Basic net income or loss per share is computed by dividing the net income or loss for the period by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing the net income or loss for the period by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock plus dilutive potential common stock considered outstanding during the period. Such dilutive shares consist of incremental shares that would be issued upon exercise of the Company’s common stock purchase warrants and stock options.

Income Taxes
 
Deferred income taxes have been provided to show the effect of temporary differences between the recognition of expenses for financial and income tax reporting purposes and between the tax basis of assets and liabilities, and their reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements.  In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, the Company assesses the likelihood that deferred tax assets will be recovered through tax planning strategies or from future taxable income, and to the extent that recovery is not likely or there is insufficient operating history, a valuation allowance is established. Our ability to utilize net operating losses (“NOL”) carryforwards to offset our future taxable income would be limited if we have undergone or were to undergo an “ownership change” within the meaning of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “IRC”). The Company performed a Section 382 study and concluded that there are adequate NOL's available to offset any net income generated during the fiscal year ending April 30, 2020. The Company adjusts the valuation allowance in the period management determines it is more likely than not that deferred tax assets will or will not be realized.  Changes in valuation allowances from period to period are included in the tax provision in the period of change. As of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, the Company provided a valuation allowance for all net deferred tax assets, as recovery is not more likely than not based on an insufficient history of earnings.

Tax positions are positions taken in a previously filed tax return or positions expected to be taken in a future tax return that are reflected in measuring current or deferred income tax assets and liabilities reported in the consolidated financial statements.  Tax positions include, but are not limited to, the following:

An allocation or shift of income between taxing jurisdictions;
The characterization of income or a decision to exclude reportable taxable income in a tax return; or
A decision to classify a transaction, entity or other position in a tax return as tax exempt.

10




The Company reflects tax benefits only if it is more likely than not that the Company will be able to sustain the tax position, based on its technical merits.  If a tax benefit meets this criterion, it is measured and recognized based on the largest amount of benefit that is cumulatively greater than 50% likely to be realized.  The Company recorded $151,000 of liabilities related to uncertain tax positions relative to one of its foreign operations as of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019.
 
The Company’s practice is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. The Company had no accrual for interest or penalties on the Company’s balance sheets at October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, and has not recognized interest and/or penalties in the statement of operations for either period. We do not anticipate any significant unrecognized tax benefits will be recorded during the next 12 months.
 
The provision for the income taxes for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 was $11,000 and $1,000. The provision for income taxes for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 was $26,000 and $1,000, respectively.

Revenue Recognition

All revenue is generated from contracts with customers. The Company's arrangements are service type contracts that mainly have a duration of less than a year. The Company recognizes revenue when control of these services is transferred to the customer in an amount, referred to as the transaction price, that reflects the consideration to which the Company is expected to be entitled in exchange for those services. The Company determines revenue recognition utilizing the following five steps: (1) identification of the contract with a customer, (2) identification of the performance obligations in the contract (promised goods or services that are distinct), (3) determination of the transaction price, (4) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations, and (5) recognition of revenue when, or as, the Company transfers control of the product or service for each performance obligation. The Company records revenues net of any tax assessments by governmental authorities, such as value added taxes, that are imposed on and concurrent with specific revenue generating transactions.

Pharmacology Study, POS Services and Other Services

The Company generally enters into contracts with customers to provide oncology services with payments based on fixed-fee arrangements. At contract inception, the Company assesses the services promised in the contracts with customers to identify the performance obligations in the arrangement. The Company's fixed-fee arrangements for oncology services are considered a single performance obligation because the Company provides a highly-integrated service.

The Company recognizes revenue over time using a progress-based input method since there is no single output measure that would fairly depict the transfer of control over the life of the performance obligation. Revenue is recognized for the single performance obligation over time due to the Company's right to payment for work performed to date and the performance does not create an asset with an alternative use. The Company recognizes revenue as portions of the overall performance obligation are completed as this best depicts the progress of the performance obligation.

Variable Consideration

In some cases, contracts provide for variable consideration that is contingent upon the occurrence of uncertain future events, such as the success of the initial performance obligation. Variable consideration is estimated at the expected value or at the most likely amount depending on the type of consideration. Estimated amounts are included in the transaction price to the extent it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved. The estimate of variable consideration and determination of whether to include estimated amounts in the transaction price are based largely on an assessment of its anticipated performance and all information (historical, current and forecasted) that is reasonably available to the Company.

Trade Receivables, Unbilled Services and Deferred Revenue

In general, billings and payments are established by contractual provisions including predetermined payment schedules, which may or may not correspond to the timing of the transfer of control of the Company's services under the contract. In general, the Company's intention in its invoicing (payment terms) is to maintain cash neutrality over the life of the contract. Upfront payments, when they occur, are intended to cover certain expenses the Company incurs at the beginning of the contract. Neither the Company nor its customers view such upfront payments and contracted payment schedules as a means of financing. Unbilled services primarily arise from timing of payment terms and when an input method of revenue recognition is utilized and revenue recognized exceeds the amount billed to the customer.

Deferred revenue consists of unearned payments received in excess of revenue recognized. As the contracted services are subsequently performed and the associated revenue is recognized, the deferred revenue balance is reduced by the amount of the revenue recognized during the period. Deferred revenue is classified as a current liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as the Company expects to recognize the associated revenue in less than one year.

Accounting Pronouncements Being Evaluated

In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU 2018-15, which amends ASC 350-40, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software, to address a customer’s accounting for implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement ("CCA") that is a service contract. This update aligns the accounting for costs incurred to implement a CCA that is a service arrangement with the guidance on capitalizing costs associated with developing or obtaining internal-use software. The update is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the amendments in this update is permitted, including adoption in any interim period. We are currently assessing the impact of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses". This update requires immediate recognition of management’s estimates of current expected credit losses ("CECL"). Under the prior model, losses were recognized only as they were incurred. The new model is applicable to all financial instruments that are not accounted for at fair value through net income. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 for public entities. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases", (Topic 842), which required the Company to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities (related to leases previously classified as operating under previous U.S. GAAP) on its consolidated balance sheet for all leases in excess of one year in duration. The ASU was effective for the Company on May 1, 2019. The Company elected to adopt ASU 2016-02 using the modified retrospective method and, therefore, have not recast comparative periods presented in its unaudited consolidated financial statements. As permitted under ASU 2016-02, the Company elected to account for the non-lease components together with the lease components as a single lease component. The Company recorded an operating lease right-of-use ("ROU") asset of $3.2 million, net of deferred rent of $900,000 and an operating lease liability of $4.1 million as of May 1, 2019. See Note 8 of this Form 10-Q for additional information and required disclosures. Under Topic 842, the Company determined if an arrangement is a lease at inception. ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments of $4.1 million over the lease term. For this purpose, the Company considers only payments that are fixed and determinable at the time of commencement. As the Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, "Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting". This ASU expands the scope of Topic 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation (which currently only includes share-based payments to employees) to include share-based payments issued to nonemployees for goods or services. Under the new guidance, the existing employee guidance will apply to nonemployee share based transactions (as long as the transaction is not effectively a form of financing), with the exception of specific guidance related to the attribution of compensation cost. The cost of nonemployee awards will continue to be recorded as if the grantor had paid cash for the goods or services. The new accounting guidance was effective for the Company on May 1, 2019. The Company has adopted this new rule beginning with its financial reporting for the quarter ended January 31, 2019. The adoption had no material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Note 4. Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Oncology Services Revenue

The Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue Recognition - Revenue from Customers ("ASC 606") on May 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective method for all contracts not completed as of the date of adoption. The reported results for both the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 reflect the application of ASC 606. In accordance with ASC 606, revenue is now recognized when, or as, a customer obtains control of promised services. The amount of revenue recognized reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for these services.

A performance obligation is a promise (or a combination of promises) in a contract to transfer distinct goods or services to a customer and is the unit of accounting under ASC 606 for the purposes of revenue recognition. A contract's transaction price is allocated to each separate performance obligation based upon the standalone selling price and is recognized as revenue, when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. The majority of the Company's contracts have a single performance obligation because the promise to transfer individual services is not separately identifiable from other promises in the contracts, and therefore, is not distinct.

The majority of the Company's revenue arrangements are service contracts that are complete within a year or less. There are a few contracts that range in duration between 1 and 3 years. Substantially all of the Company's performance obligations, and associated revenue, are transferred to the customer over time. Most of the Company's contracts can be terminated by the customer without cause. In the event of termination, the Company's contracts provide that the customer pay the Company for services rendered through the termination date. The Company generally receives compensation based on a predetermined invoicing schedule relating to specific milestones for that contract. In addition, in certain instances a customer contract may include forms of variable consideration such as performance increases or other provisions that can increase or decrease the transaction price. This variable consideration is generally awarded upon achievement of certain performance metrics. For the purposes of revenue recognition, variable consideration is assessed on a contract-by-contract basis and the amount to be recorded is estimated based on the assessment of the Company's anticipated performance and consideration of all information that is reasonably available. Variable consideration is recognized as revenue if and when it is deemed probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved in the future.


13



Amendments to contracts are common. The Company evaluates each amendment which meets the criteria of a contract modification under ASC 606. Each modification is further evaluated to determine whether the contract modification should be accounted for as a separate contract or as a continuation of the original agreement.

The Company accounts for amendments as a separate contract if they meet the criteria under ASC 606-10-25-12.

Other TOS revenue represents services provided to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. The Company does not consider these services part of their core product offerings.

Contract Balances

Contract assets include unbilled amounts typically resulting from revenue recognized in excess of the amounts billed to the customer for which the right to payment is subject to factors other than the passage of time. These amounts may not exceed their net realizable value. Contract assets are classified as current. Contract liabilities consist of customer payments received in advance of performance and billings in excess of revenue recognized, net of revenue recognized from the balance at the beginning of the period. Contract assets and liabilities are presented on the balance sheet on a net contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period. There were no material contract assets or liabilities recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019.

Depreciation and amortization expense, excluding expense recorded under the finance lease, was $162,000 and $115,000 for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and $307,000 and $226,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018. As of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, property, plant and equipment included assets held under the finance lease of $366,000 and $130,000, respectively. Related depreciation expense was $16,000 and $36,000 for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, and $53,000 and $43,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018. During the quarter the Company traded in and disposed of $235,000 leased asset that was included in the laboratory equipment category. The accumulated depreciation written off during the disposal related to that asset was $127,000.

Finance Lease
 
In November 2014, the Company entered into a finance lease for laboratory equipment. The lease has costs of approximately $149,000, at inception, through November 2019. The current monthly finance lease payment is approximately $3,000. The future minimum lease payments remaining under this finance lease is $2,000, which will be paid during fiscal year 2020. The present value of minimum future obligations is calculated based on interest rate of 5%.

In July 2018, the Company entered into a second finance lease for laboratory equipment. The lease had total costs of approximately $266,000, inclusive of interest and taxes, with a monthly payment of approximately $11,000. Although the lease was originally due to mature in July 2020, the Company decided to pay the outstanding balance on February 1, 2019. As a result, the entire outstanding balance is nil as of October 31, 2019. During the quarter, the Company traded in this asset and received a $160,000 reduction in the purchase price of two newly acquired assets. The net book value of the asset traded in at the time of trade in was $108,000, which resulted in the gain on the disposal of the asset of $52,000, which is included in the other income (expense) line in the Company's statement of operations. The net book value of the asset is nil at October 31, 2019.
 
Note 6. Share-Based Payments
 
The Company has in place a 2010 Equity Incentive Plan and a 2008 Equity Incentive Plan. In general, these plans provide for stock-based compensation in the form of (i) Non-statutory Stock Options; (ii) Restricted Stock Awards; and (iii) Stock Appreciation Rights to the Company’s employees, directors and non-employees. The plans also provide for limits on the aggregate number of shares that may be granted, the term of grants and the strike price of option awards.
 
Stock-based compensation in the amount of $77,000 and $88,000 was recognized for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Stock-based compensation in the amount of $208,000 and $171,000 was recognized for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Included in 2018 stock-based compensation expense for the six months October 31, 2018 under general and administrative line item is $7,500 issuance of common stock as compensation for services performed. During the six months ended October 31, 2019 there were 40,000 unvested options that were forfeited at employee's termination date, which resulted in a negative expense of $37,000 included in the cost of oncology services. Stock-based compensation expense was recognized as follows (table in thousands):

Note 7. Related Party Transactions
 
Related party transactions include transactions between the Company and its shareholders, management, or affiliates.  The following transactions were in the normal course of operations and were measured and recorded at the exchange amount, which is the amount of consideration established and agreed to by the parties.
 
Consulting Services
 
During both six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company paid an affiliate of a board member $36,000 for consulting services unrelated to his duty as a board member. During both three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company paid an affiliate of a board member $18,000 for consulting services unrelated to his duty as a board member. During the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company paid an affiliate of another board member $29,250 and $37,261, respectively, for consulting services unrelated to their duties as board members. During the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company paid an affiliate of another board member $14,089 and $16,575. As of October 31, 2019, $15,311 was due to these related parties. 


Note 8. Commitments and Contingencies
 
Operating Leases
 
In connection with the Company's adoption of ASC 842, arrangements meeting the definition of a lease are classified as operating or financing leases, and are recorded on the consolidated balance sheet as both an operating lease ROU asset and operating lease liability, calculated by discounting fixed lease payments over the lease term at the rate implicit in the lease or the Company’s incremental borrowing rate. Lease liabilities are increased by interest and reduced by payments each period, and the right of use asset is amortized over the lease term. For operating leases, interest on the lease liability and the amortization of the right of use asset result in straight-line rent expense over the lease term. Variable lease expenses, if any, are recorded when incurred. The Company has elected to apply the short-term lease exemption practical expedient for each class of underlying assets and excludes short-term leases having initial terms of 12 months or less. The Company recognizes rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term for these short-term leases. The Company has determined that no material embedded leases exist. As the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments, which was 7.25%. The weighted average remaining lease term and the weighted average discount rate at the adoption date were 7.68 years and 7.25%, respectively.

The Company currently leases certain office equipment and its office and laboratory facilities under non-cancelable operating leases. Rent expense for operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term from the lease commencement date through the scheduled expiration date. Rent expenses under the office and laboratory facilities totaled $477,000 and $375,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The Company considers its facilities adequate for its current operational needs.

The Company leases the following facilities:

One University Plaza, Suite 307, Hackensack, New Jersey 07601, which, since November 2011, serves as the Company’s corporate headquarters. The lease expires in November 2021.

Legal Matters
 
The Company is not currently party to any legal matters to its knowledge. The Company is not aware of any other matters that would have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
 

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
The following discussion of our historical results of operations and our liquidity and capital resources should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes that appear elsewhere in this report and our most recent annual report for the year ended April 30, 2019, as filed on Form 10-K.
 
Forward-Looking Statements
 
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains certain “forward-looking statements,” which include information relating to future events, future financial performance, strategies, expectations, competitive environment, regulation, and availability of resources. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding: proposed new programs; expectations that regulatory developments or other matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations, or liquidity; statements concerning projections, predictions, expectations, estimates, or forecasts as to our business, financial and operational results, and future economic performance; and statements of management’s goals and objectives and other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “future,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates” and similar expressions, as well as statements in future tense, identify forward-looking statements.
 
Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved.

Overview and Recent Developments
 
We are engaged in the development and sale of advanced technology solutions and products utilized in the development and use of oncology drugs.  Utilizing our TumorGraft Technology Platform (the "Platform"), a comprehensive Bank of unique, well chracterized PDX models, we provide select services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies seeking personalized approaches to drug development. By performing studies to predict the efficacy of oncology drugs, our Platform facilitates drug discovery with lower costs and increased speed of drug development as well as increased adoption of existing drugs.

Our Platform provides a novel approach to simulating the results of human clinical trials used in developing oncology drugs. According to a 2013 study conducted by Cutting Edge Information, it can cost up to $100,000 per patient in oncology clinical trials and the typical cost for each phase of development per year increases from approximately $3 million in the pre-clinical setting to approximately $150 million in phase III. Simulating trials before executing them provides benefits to both pharmaceutical companies and patients. Pharmaceutical companies can lower the risk of spending resources on drugs that do not show significant anti-cancer activities and increase the chance that the clinical development path they pursue will be focused on an appropriate patient population and a successful combination with other drugs.

We plan to continue our efforts to expand our TumorGraft Technology Platform in order to expand our TOS program. Our POS program will not be the focus of our growth moving forward.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Our liquidity needs have typically arisen from the funding of our research and development programs and the launch of new products, working capital requirements, and other strategic initiatives. In the past, we have met these cash requirements through cash, working capital management, proceeds from certain private placements and public offerings of our securities and sales of products and services. For the six months ended October 31, 2019, the Company had net loss of approximately $334,000 and cash flow from operations of $81,000. For the three months ended October 31, 2019, the Company had net income of $307,000 and cash flow from operations of $360,000. As of October 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $71.0 million, a working capital deficit of $1.2 million and cash of $2.8 million. We believe that our cash on hand, together with expected positive cash flows from operations for fiscal year 2020, are adequate to fund operations through at least 12 months from the filing of this 10-Q. Should the Company be required to raise additional capital, there can be no assurance that management would be successful in raising such capital on terms acceptable to us, if at all.

Oncology Services Revenue
 
Oncology services revenue was $7.6 million and $6.7 million for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, an increase of $932,000 or 13.9%. Operating revenues were $14.4 million and $12.9 million for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, an increase of $1.4 million or 11.2%.The increase in revenue for both the three and six month periods is due to increased sales, both in number and size of studies, and expanding our customer base. Additionally, we’ve

20



introduced product enhancements, creating more complex study designs, and providing our Pharma customers the ability for more extensive testing.

Cost of Oncology Services
 
Cost of oncology services for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $3.9 million and $3.5 million, respectively, an increase of $430,000 or 12.5%.  For the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, gross margins were 49.1% and 48.4%, respectively. The increase in cost of oncology services for the three month period was mainly due to an increase in salary and lab supply expenses. The increase is generally in line with expectations based on the increase in revenue and study volume. Cost of oncology solutions for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $7.6 million and $6.5 million, respectively, an increase of $1.1 million or 16.8%.  For the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, gross margins were 46.9% and 49.4%, respectively. The increase in cost of oncology services for the six month period was mainly due to an increase in salary, mice, and lab supply expenses. Gross margin varies based on timing differences between expense and revenue recognition and was impacted by the increase in costs on growing study volume in advance of revenue recognition.

 Research and Development
 
Research and development expenses for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $1.3 million and $1.2 million, respectively, an increase of $148,000 or 12.4%. Research and development expenses for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $2.6 million and $2.3 million, respectively, an increase of $362,000 or 15.9%. The increase for both the three month and six month periods is due to increased salary and lab supply expenses related to new product development and platform testing.
 
Sales and Marketing
 
Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $977,000 and $740,000, respectively, an increase of $237,000, or 32.0%. Sales and marketing expenses for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 was $1.8 million and $1.3 million, respectively, an increase of $588,000 or 46.7%. The increase for both the three month and six periods is mainly due to the annualized quarterly accrual of commissions and expansion of the sales force.

General and Administrative
 
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $1.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively, an increase of approximately $101,000, or 9.8%. The increase for the three month period was mainly due to an increase in salary, stock based compensation and depreciations expenses offset by a reduction in recruiting costs. General and administrative expenses for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018 were $2.6 million and $2.1 million, respectively, an increase of approximately $473,000 or 22.7%. The increase for the six month period was mainly due to an increase in salary, professional fees, and stock based compensation and depreciation expenses offset by a reduction in recruiting costs.

Inflation
 
Inflation does not have a meaningful impact on the results of our operations.
 
Cash Flows
 
The following discussion relates to the major components of our cash flows:
 
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
 
Net cash provided by operating activities was $81,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $400,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2018, respectively. The reduction in cash provided by operating activities during the current period was due to the operating loss in the first quarter ended July 31, 2019.
 
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
 
Net cash used in investing activities was $522,000 and $486,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase in the net cash used in investing activities is the result of lab equipment purchased for the Company's new product and service offerings.
 

21



Cash Flows from Financing Activities
 
Net cash used in financing activities was $12,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 compared to the net cash provided by financing activities of $1.0 million for the six months ended October 31, 2018, respectively. The reduction in net cash from financing activities is due to a decrease in option and warrant exercises during the current period.

Critical Accounting Estimates and Policies
 
The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to apply methodologies and make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates of the Company include, among other things, accounts receivable realization, revenue recognition (replacement of licensed tumors), valuation allowance for deferred tax assets, valuation of goodwill, and stock compensation and warrant assumptions. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Company’s critical accounting policies are summarized in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on July 29, 2019.
