MEDITE CANCER DIAGNOSTICS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
N OTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Tabular data in thousands, except share and per share amounts)
 
Note 1.           Organization
 
The Company
 
MEDITE Cancer Diagnostics, Inc. (“MDIT”, “MEDITE”, “we”, “us” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware in December 1998.
 
These statements include the accounts of MEDITE Cancer Diagnostics, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, which consists of MEDITE Enterprise, Inc., MEDITE GmbH, Burgdorf, Germany and MEDITE Lab Solutions Inc., Orlando, USA. In 2017, the Company made the decision to integrate CytoGlobe into Medite GmbH.  CytoGlobe had been operating as a separate company focused on cytology products (equipment and consumables) with separate personnel and financial reporting that was consolidated into Medite GmbH.  As the CytoGlobe brand became less important over time and customers purchased both cytology and histology products from Medite, it no longer made sense to keep CytoGlobe as a separate company.  Therefore, it was integrated from a financial, operational and product portfolio perspective into Medite GmbH.
 
MEDITE is a medical technology company specialized in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of premium medical devices, consumables and molecular biomarkers for detection, risk assessment and diagnosis of cancerous and precancerous conditions and related diseases. The Company has 57 employees in two countries, a distribution network to about 80 countries and a wide range of products for anatomic pathology, histology and cytology laboratories is available for sale.
 
Note 2.           Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Consolidation, Basis of Presentation and Significant Estimates
 
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for the periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 included herein are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.  Such consolidated financial statements reflect, in the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position and results of operations as of and for the periods indicated. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. These interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018 or for any other period. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the interim information presented not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements disclosed in the Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 filed on May 17, 2018 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
In preparing the accompanying condensed consolidated accompanying financial statements, management has made certain estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures of contingencies. Changes in facts and circumstances may result in revised estimates and actual results may differ from these estimates.
 
Going Concern
 
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern.  This contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.  At June 30, 2018, the Company’s cash balance was $47,000 and its operating losses for the year ended December 31, 2017 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 have used most of the Company’s liquid assets. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. However, the Company has approximately $519,000 in working capital as of June 30, 2018 compared to negative working capital of approximately $318,000 on December 31, 2017.  The Company raised additional cash of $3.2 million from the issuance of convertible notes payable starting in the first half of 2018 through the date of this filing (see Notes 4 and 9).
  
 
 
Management continues to expand its product offerings and has also expanded its sales and distribution channels during 2018.
 
In the future, we may require sources of capital in addition to cash on hand to continue operations and to implement our strategy. If our operations do not become cash flow positive, we may be forced to seek equity investments or debt arrangements. No assurances can be given that we will be successful in obtaining such additional financing on reasonable terms, or at all. If adequate funds are not available on acceptable terms, or at all, we may be unable to adequately fund our business plans and it could have a negative effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition. In addition, if funds are available, the issuance of equity securities or securities convertible into equity could dilute the value of shares of our common stock and cause the market price to fall, and the issuance of debt securities could impose restrictive covenants that could impair our ability to engage in certain business transactions.
 
Revenue Recognition  
 
The Company derives its revenue primarily from the sale of medical products and supplies for the diagnosis and prevention of cancer.
 
The Company recognizes revenue for 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.
 
Consumables revenues consist of single-use products and are recognized at a point in time following the transfer of control of such products to the customer, which generally occurs upon shipment. Instruments revenues typically consist of longer-lived assets that, for the substantial majority of sales, are recognized at a point in time in a manner similar to consumables. The Company exercises judgment in determining the timing of revenue by analyzing the point in time or the period over which the customer has the ability to direct the use of and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits of the asset. The Company expenses contract costs that would otherwise be capitalized and amortized over a period of less than one year.
 
Shipping and handling costs are included in cost of goods sold and charged to the customers based on the contractual terms.
 
Payments from customers for most instruments, consumables and services are typically due in a fixed number of days after shipment or delivery of the product. For certain international equipment orders a prepayment is required. The balance of the customer deposits is reflected in our accrued liabilities and was $62,540 as of June 30, 2018.
 
See Note 8 for revenue disaggregated by type and by geographic region as well as further information about remaining performance obligations.
 
Inventories
 
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined using the first in first out method (FIFO) and market is based generally on net realizable value.
 
Inventories consists of parts inventory purchased from outside vendors, raw materials used in the manufacturing of equipment, work in process and finished goods. Management reviews inventory on a regular basis and determines if inventory is still useable. A reserve is established for the estimated decrease in carrying value for obsolete or excess inventory. Once a reserve is established, it is considered a permanent adjustment to the cost basis of the obsolete or excess inventory.
 
Foreign Currency Translation
 
The accounts of the U.S. parent company are maintained in United States Dollar (“USD”). The functional currency of the Company’s German subsidiaries is the EURO (“EURO”). The accounts of the German subsidiaries were translated into USD in accordance with relevant accounting guidance. All assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rate on the balance sheet dates, stockholders’ equity was translated at the historical rates and statements of operations transactions are translated at the average exchange rate for each period. The resulting translation gains and losses are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss as a component of stockholders’ equity.
  
 
 
Research and Development
 
All research and development costs are expensed as incurred. Research and development costs consist of engineering, product development, testing, developing and validating the manufacturing process, and regulatory related costs.
 
Acquired In-Process Research and Development
 
Acquired in-process research and development (“IPR&D”) that the Company acquires through business combinations represents the fair value assigned to incomplete research projects which, at the time of acquisition, have not reached technological feasibility. The amounts are capitalized and are accounted for as indefinite-lived intangible assets, subject to impairment testing until completion or abandonment of the projects. Upon successful completion of each project, MEDITE will make a determination as to the then useful life of the intangible asset, generally determined by the period in which the substantial majority of the cash flows are expected to be generated, and begin amortization. The Company tests IPR&D for impairment at least annually, or more frequently if impairment indicators exist, by first assessing qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of the IPR&D intangible asset is less than its carrying amount. If the Company concludes it is more likely than not that the fair value is less than the carrying amount, a quantitative test that compares the fair value of the IPR&D intangible asset with its carrying value is performed. If the fair value is less than the carrying amount, an impairment loss is recognized in operating results.
 
Impairment of Indefinite Lived Intangible Assets Other Than Goodwill
 
The Company has the option first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired. If, after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, the Company concludes that it is not more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired, then the entity is not required to take further action. However, if the Company concludes otherwise, then it is required to determine the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset and perform the quantitative impairment test by comparing the fair value with the carrying amount in accordance with relevant accounting guidance.
 
Goodwill
 
Goodwill is recognized for the excess of cost of an acquired entity over the amounts assigned to assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination.  Goodwill is tested for impairment at the reporting unit level (operating segment or one level below an operating segment) on an annual basis (December 31 for us) and between annual tests if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying value. These events or circumstances could include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, or sale or disposition of a significant portion of a reporting unit.
 
Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units, assignment of assets and liabilities to reporting units, assignment of goodwill to reporting units, and determination of the fair value of each reporting unit using a discounted cash flow methodology. This analysis requires significant judgments, including estimation of future cash flows, which is dependent on internal forecasts, estimation of the long-term rate of growth for our business, estimation of the useful life over which cash flows will occur, and determination of our weighted average cost of capital.
 
The estimates used to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit change from year to year based on operating results, market conditions, and other factors. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the determination of fair value and goodwill impairment for each reporting unit.
 
Net Loss Per Share
 
Basic loss per share is calculated based on the weighted-average number of outstanding common shares. Diluted loss per share is calculated based on the weighted-average number of outstanding common shares plus the effect of dilutive potential common shares, using the treasury stock method and the if-converted method. MEDITE’s calculation of diluted net loss per share excludes potential common shares for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 as the effect would be anti-dilutive (i.e. would reduce the loss per share).
 
 
 
The Company computes its loss applicable to common stock holders by subtracting dividends on preferred stock, including undeclared or unpaid dividends if cumulative, from its reported net loss and reports the same on the face of the condensed consolidated statement of operations.
  
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue with Contracts from Customers.” ASU 2014-09 supersedes the current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The ASU introduces a five-step model to achieve its core principal of the entity recognizing revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. The updated guidance is effective for public entities for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017 with early adoption permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company adopted the modified retrospective transition method of ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018 and there was no material change to its current business practices upon implementation.
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases” (“ASU 2016-02”). The core principle of ASU 2016-02 is that an entity should recognize on its balance sheet assets and liabilities arising from a lease. In accordance with that principle, ASU 2016-02 requires that a lessee recognize a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying leased asset for the lease term. The recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee will depend on the lease classification as a finance or operating lease. This new accounting guidance is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 (i.e., calendar years beginning on January 1, 2019), including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
       
In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows - Restricted Cash (Topic 230)”. This new standard requires companies to include amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in cash and cash equivalents when reconciling beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and requires retrospective application. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2018 by using the retrospective method, which required the following disclosures and changes to the presentation of its consolidated financial statements: cash and restricted cash reported on the consolidated statements of cash flows now includes restricted cash of $417,000 as of December 31, 2017, as well as previously reported cash.

GPB Debt Holdings II, LLC (“GPB”) Convertible Note Payable
 
On September 26, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) with GPB, pursuant to which the Company issued to GPB (i) a secured convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $5,356,400 (the “GPB Note”) at a purchase price equal to 97.5% of the face value of the of the original $5 million GPB Note and an additional discount of 300,000 Euro ($356,400 at September 26, 2017) considered an additional purchase discount, with the Company receiving net proceeds of $4.7 million and (ii) a warrant to purchase an aggregate of 4,120,308 shares of common stock of the Company (the “Warrant”). The Company allocated the proceeds received to the GPB Note and the warrants on a relative fair value basis at the time of issuance. The total debt discount will be amortized over the life of the GPB Note to interest expense. The estimated relative fair value of the warrants was $520,052. Amortization expense of the debt discount, which includes original issue discount, loan fees and the warrant value, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 was $114,437 and $228,875, respectively. The GPB Note matures on the 36th month anniversary date following the Closing Date, as defined in the GPB Note (the “Maturity Date”). The GPB Note is secured by a senior secured first priority security interest on all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries evidenced by a security agreement (the “Security Agreement”). Each subsidiary also entered into a guaranty agreement pursuant to which the subsidiaries have guaranteed all obligations of the Company to the GPB. The GPB Note bears interest at a rate of 13.25% per annum (which interest is increased to 18.25% upon an Event of Default). The GPB Note is initially convertible at a price of $0.65 (the “Conversion Price”) into 8,240,615 shares of common stock. There was no discount relate to the conversion feature. The exercise price of the Warrant is subject to a ratchet downside protection with a $0.30 per share floor price in the event the Company issues additional equity securities, and subject to adjustments for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like. The GPB Note is being amortized quarterly at a rate of 10% of the face value of the Note beginning on month 24, with the remaining 60% due at the Maturity Date. There is a flat 3% success fee which allows for the prepayment of the GPB Note and applies to the payment of principal during the Term through the Maturity Date. The GPB Note contains customary events of default. The GPB Note contains certain covenants, such as restrictions on the incurrence of indebtedness, the existence of liens, the payment of restricted payments, default, redemptions, and the payment of cash dividends and the transfer of assets. GPB also has a right of participation for any Company offering, financing, debt purchase or assignment for 36 months after the closing date. The Company is required to maintain a 6-month interest reserve of $417,000 in restricted cash. The shares underlying the GPB Note and the Warrants are to be registered by the Company through a registration rights agreement within 60 days and the registration statement is to be declared effective within 180 days. Failure to file, or to meet other criteria defined as the event date will required the Company to pay 2% of the registrable securities times the price at the event date per month, up to 12% in cash payments. On February 5, 2018, the Company entered into a Forbearance Agreement with GBP that provides relief until July 1, 2018 of the Company’s requirement to maintain an interest reserve and to complete a registration rights agreement and provides relief until April 1, 2018 of the Company’s requirement to make interest payments.  According to the Forbearance Agreement, interest payments must be current by December 31, 2018.
 
 
 
On June 29, 2018, the Company signed a first amendment to the Forbearance Agreement with GPB, whereby GPB agreed to forbear its exercise of registration rights pursuant to Section 4.9 of the SPA, and   with respect to the maintenance of the required interest reserve account pursuant to Section 4.14 of the SPA, until September 30, 2018. The Company is in compliance with the Forbearance Agreement as of the date of this filing.
 
2015 Securities Purchase Agreement
 
The Company has an outstanding secured promissory note with a principal balance of $50,000 and an accrued interest balance of $13,250 that is not considered in default as the Company received notification to freeze this account.
 
2018 Convertible Notes
 
On February 6, 2018, the Company established a private placement of convertible notes and common stock to raise approximately $1,500,000, with an over-allotment option for an additional $750,000. The convertible notes have a conversion price of $0.075 per share. The investors received shares of common stock of the Company based on an assumed purchase price of $0.075 per share and the investor is not required to pay any additional consideration for the shares of common stock. As of June 30, 2018 the Company had received gross proceeds of $2,255,009, converted $130,000 of accrued liabilities and issued 31,800,120 shares of common stock. The convertible notes mature five years from the closing date, have an interest rate of 12%, are secured obligations of the Company, senior to other outstanding indebtedness and are expressly subordinate to the Company’s SPA with GPB.
 
Of the total $2,385,009 received and converted, the Company received $1,630,000 and converted $130,000 of accrued liabilities into convertible debt from related parties, including board members, and issued 23,466,667 shares of common stock.
 
In order to account for this instrument, we had to determine if it had an embedded beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”), which is measured at the commitment date by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value of that feature (not the fair value) to APIC. This allocation will result in a discount on the convertible instrument. The intrinsic value is calculated as the difference between the effective conversion price and the fair value of the common stock into which the security is convertible, multiplied by the number of shares into which the security is convertible.
 
If the intrinsic value of the BCF is greater than the proceeds allocated to the convertible instrument, the amount of the discount assigned to the BCF is limited to the amount of proceeds allocated to the convertible instrument. The net carrying amount should be accreted from zero to its face value over the term of the convertible debt.
 
For the 2018 convertible notes the BCF was greater than the proceeds so therefore the convertible notes of $2,385,009 had an initial debt discount of $2,385,009. Amortization expense of the debt discount during the three and six month period ended June 30, 2018 was $104,916 and $150,333, respectively.

The total debt discount will be amortized over the life of these notes to interest expense. The estimated relative fair value of the warrants was $42,321.

Legal Proceedings
 
On November 13, 2016, the Company’s former CFO filed a complaint against the Company and certain officers and directors of the Company in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, Case No. 1:16-cv-10554, whereby he is alleging (i) breach of the Illinois Wage and Protection Act, (ii) breach of employment contract and (iii) breach of loan agreement. He is seeking monetary damages up to approximately $1,665,972. The Company has denied the substantive allegations in the complaint and is vigorously defending the suit. Management believes that the claims set forth in the complaint against the Company are without merit. The Company has accrued wages and vacation of approximately $1.1 million and a $50,000 note payable to the former CFO at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017. The presiding Federal Judge has referred the lawsuit to mediation. No settlement was reach during the April 2017 meditation. The Company has proactively initiated settlement offer. In August 2017, the parties reached a Settlement Term Sheet whereby a final forbearance and settlement agreement must be filed with the magistrate judge. On November 8, 2017 the Plaintiff filed a motion to compel settlement with a meeting before a magistrate judge on November 14, 2017.
 
On February 20, 2018, the magistrate judge denied Plaintiff’s motion. On March 8, 2018, Plaintiff again filed a Motion to Enforce Settlement Agreement which has been opposed by the Company. On April 22, the judge ruled in favor of the Company and denied plaintiff’s motion to compel. The judge also instructed counsels for the Plaintiff and Defendant to conduct depositions and prepare pre-trial orders. Depositions have been completed and both sides have submitted drafts of the pre-trial order. A status hearing is set for September 6, 2018 to review the order. In the meantime, the Company has continued to reach out to the former CFO to discuss a possible settlement.
 
On May 15, 2018, a complaint was filed in the United States District Court of Northern California against the individual directors of the Company by Robert McCullough, Jr, and Dr. Zhongxi Zheng. The Company was named as a Nominal Defendant. The complaint alleges various claims including Breach of Fiduciary Obligations, Abuse of Control, Unjust Enrichment, Fraud, Intentional Misrepresentation and Negligent Representation. The suit seeks certain declaratory relief, injunctive relief and an accounting. Management believes these claims are frivolous and without any merit whatsoever, and are being filed for the sole purpose of harassing the named Defendants and to leverage a more beneficial settlement in the suit discussed in the paragraph above. Further, management believes that the suit was filed in a court having no personal jurisdiction over any of the named Defendants, The Company and individual directors will vigorously defend against this suit and seek to have it dismissed. If successful, Defendants will seek attorneys’ fees and appropriate sanctions.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Overview of MEDITE Cancer Diagnostics, Inc.
 
MEDITE Cancer Diagnostics, Inc. (the “Company”, “MEDITE”, “it”, “we”, or “us”), develops, manufactures, markets and sells MEDITE branded products (instruments and consumables), in the areas of histology and cytology. These premium medical devices and consumables are for detection, risk assessment and diagnosis of cancerous and precancerous conditions and related diseases. Depending upon the type of cancer, segments within the current target market of approximately $5.8 billion are growing at annual rates between 10% and 30%. The well-established brand of MEDITE is widely known and remains a professional description of the Company’s business. The Company’s trading symbol is “MDIT”.
 
In 2018, the Company continued its focus on implementation of several growth opportunities including enhanced distribution of core products through sales and distribution channels, newly developed patented assays, new laboratory devices and several marketing projects like the introduction of the SureCyte C1 fluorogenic stain worldwide.  The Company has approximately 57 employees in two countries, a distribution network in over 80 countries and a wide range of products for anatomic pathology, histology and cytology laboratories available for sale.
 
On June 13, 2018, the Company successfully completed its major 3-year audit for the ISO 9001 quality standard, and its certification was renewed for another 3 years.  This is a direct result of our renewed focus on product and process quality over the past year.
 
China is an important market to the Company and in 2018 we have continued to address and improve upon several product quality, service and training issues.  Sales in China were negligible during the first quarter of 2018, but the Company booked over $300,000 in the second quarter and has received additional orders for nearly $1,000,000.  
 
The Company’s cytology product line (non-Gyn and Gyn applications) revenue was lower in Europe during the first quarter of 2018 because product was not available to ship to meet demand, due to working capital constraints and late delivery from suppliers.  The Company is in the process of moving forward the submission of an application to the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for SureThin Gyn applications. The Company will be able to compete with the dominant suppliers in this $600 million market and target major strategic lab partners. The impact of the gynecology segment SureThin solution in the US market will drive significant new revenue and gross margin improvement opportunities moving forward.
  
The patented self-collection device SoftKit targets the growing POC (Point of Care) market. Growth in this area is due to consumer-driven health care requirements and the necessity to support and address incremental patient population needs for screening and ongoing diagnostic tests. SoftKit is planned to be sold through various marketing channels that serve the gynecology consumer health and emerging post-acute care space. The Company is currently developing a study plan with a major research center in the Midwest, with the goal of submitting for FDA approval.
 
 
 
Management believes that 2017 and 2018 developments allowed the Company to more fully leverage the products and biomarker solutions from the original CytoCore component of MEDITE. The first entry is the introduction of the SureCyte C1 fluorogenic instant stain, offering tremendous opportunities for lab efficiencies and enhanced patient care. C1 is the first of many new offerings under the SureCyte brand that will ultimately include algorithms for computer-assisted analysis and advanced assays for micro-environment analysis. The Company is currently conducting informal studies with several labs in the U.S. and Europe and is also conducting a formal study with a hospital in China in partnership with UNIC. CI has recently received the CE Mark in the EU.
 
As part of early SureCyte marketing activities, the Company is working with numerous U.S. and European Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) and clinical sites to test the C1 stain, provide feedback on the overall product line plans, and to create white papers and publish articles in highly-recognized peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
 
The Company began manufacturing its new cryostat line during the second quarter of 2018 and has already delivered units to some customers. This enhanced microtome and cryostat product line will allow MEDITE to meet the anticipated demand for these instruments as well as enhance its worldwide distribution channel through its suppliers including China.
 
The Company operates in the industry segment for cancer screening, diagnostics instruments and consumables for histology and cytology laboratories.
 
Definition:
Histology - Cancer diagnostics based on the structures of cells in tissues
 
Cytology - Cancer screening and diagnostics based on the structures of individual cells
 
Cancers and precancerous conditions are defined in terms of structural abnormalities in cells. For this reason, cytology is widely used for the detection of such conditions while histology is typically used for the confirmation, identification and characterization of the cellular abnormalities detected by cytology. Other diagnostic methods such as marker-based assays provide additional information that can supplement, but which cannot replace cytology and histology. The trend towards more personalized treatment of cancer increases the need for cytology, histology and assays for identifying and testing the best treatment alternatives. The Company believes that this segment will therefore be increasingly important for future development of strategies to fight the “cancer epidemic” (World Health Organization: World Cancer Report 2014) which expects about a 50 % increase in cancer cases worldwide within the next 20 years.
 
This segment sees a trend toward, and demand for, higher automation for more throughput in bigger laboratories, process standardization, digitalization of cell and tissue slides and computer-aided diagnostic systems, and in general a search for more cost-effective solutions.
 
MEDITE acts as a one-stop-shop for histology (also known as anatomic pathology) laboratories either as part of a hospital, as part of a chain of laboratories or individually. It is one out of only four companies offering all equipment and consumables for these laboratories worldwide. The MEDITE brand stands for innovative and high-quality products – most equipment is made in Germany – and competitive pricing.
 
For the cytology market, MEDITE offers a wide range of consumable products and equipment; in particular for liquid-based cytology which is an important tool in cancer screening and detection in the field of cervical, bladder, breast, lung and other cancer types.
 
All of the Company’s operations during the reporting period were conducted and managed within this segment, with management team reporting directly to the Chief Executive Office. For information on revenues, profit or loss and total assets, among other financial data, attributable to operations, see the consolidated financial statements included herein. 
 
 
 
Outlook
 
Due to promising innovative new products for cancer risk assessment and an increasing number of distribution contracts executed in recent years, management believes the profitability and cash-flow of the business will grow and improve. Significant on-going manufacturing issues have been identified and addressed, and additional operating expenditures may be necessary to manufacture and market new and existing products to achieve the accelerated sales growth targets outlined in the Company’s business plan. To realize the planned growth potential, management will focus its efforts on 1.) Finishing and gaining approval for the products currently under development, 2.) Increasing sales in the U.S. to optimize the excellent sales/distribution channels available there and 3.) Invigorate the distribution networks for EU/ROW and continue to expand Chinese market sales by broadening the Company’s collaboration with the local distributor UNIC. The Company also will work on continuously optimizing manufacturing capacity and planning to increase gross margin. Implementation of these plans are contingent upon securing additional debt and/or equity financing, which was completed through July 2018 (see Subsequent Events). If the Company is unable to generate profitable sales revenue or alternatively obtain additional capital, we may be required to curtail product development and other activities. The consolidated financial statements presented herein do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
 
Currently, the Company’s sales are primarily generated in Euro currency. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 the average EUR-USD exchange rate was 1.2105 compared to 1.0821 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 (OANDA) a significant increase. The stronger Euro is favorable to revenue reporting since over 90% of the Company’s revenue is in Euro, but also increases COGS for products sold in the U.S. and other countries conducting business in USD (including China). Overall, the stronger Euro is favorable to revenue reporting.
 
Results of Operations
 
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report and the notes thereto, and our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, as well as our Management’s Discussion and Analysis contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 filed with the SEC on May 17, 2018.
 
Three months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017 (in thousands USD)
 
Net Sales
 
Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2018, was $2,275 as compared to $1,277 for the three months ended June 30, 2017.  Net sales increased by $998 or 78.2 % as a result of an increase of $1,240 in equipment sales offset by a $170 decrease in Histology consumables and a $72 decrease in Cytology consumable sales during the second quarter of 2018. This was the result of funding received late first quarter and early second quarter of 2018. Sales by month have been trending upward each month this year.
 
Costs of Revenue
 
Cost of revenues were $1,215, or 53.4% of the revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $1,228, or 96.2% of the revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The cost of revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was consistent with the anticipated margins for the product mix sold.
 
Research and Development
 
Research and development expenses are an important part of our business to keep our existing products competitive, and to develop new innovative solutions with interesting market potential that will help us grow future revenues. These expenses include research work for cancer marker consumables and developing work, including engineering and industrial design, for histology and cytology laboratories worldwide. The major components consist of payroll-related costs for in-house scientific research, mechanical and electrical engineering, instrument related software development staff, prototype expenses and material purchased for R&D.
 
For the second quarter 2018, research and development expenses decreased to $258 compared to $329 for the second quarter 2017. The Company reduced the number of R&D staff by two employees in the first quarter of 2018.
 
 
 
Selling, General and Administrative
 
For the second quarter 2018, SG&A expenses were $762 as compared to $1,228 for the second quarter 2017. The reduction is due mostly to reduced staff and associated salary costs during the first six months of 2018. Also, the organization in Burgdorf, Germany consolidated its operations from two buildings to one, eliminating the rent and other expenses associated with the additional building.  
 
  Operating Loss
 
The operating loss of $28 for the second quarter of 2018 compares to the operating loss of $1,562 for the second quarter of 2017 and is directly related to higher sales for the period offset by lower research and development costs and SG&A costs discussed above.
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense increased by 706% to $540 in the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $67 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense in was the result of the increased convertible debt financing for the GPB convertible note payable and 2018 convertible notes (see Note 4 of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements).
 
Net Loss
 
The net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, totaled $563, as compared to net loss of $1,625 for the quarter ended June 30 2017. The reduction in year over year loss for 2018 was directly related to higher sales for the period and lower R&D and SG&A expenses discussed above.
 
Six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017 (in thousand USD)
 
Net Sales
 
Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $3,780 as compared to $3,168 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  Net sales increased by $612 or 19.3 % as a result of an increase of $1,042 in equipment sales offset by a $167 decrease in Histology consumables and a $263 decrease in Cytology consumable sales during the six months ended June 30, 2018.
 
Costs of Revenue
 
Cost of revenues were $2,385, or 63% of the revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $2,439, or 77% of the revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The lower cost of revenue in 2018 was the result of the fixed labor cost being spread over the higher revenue sales. The cost of revenue consisted of higher manufacturing and fixed costs during 2017 due solely to delays in sourcing parts. The Company has historically experienced cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue of between 58% and 65%.
 
Research and Development
 
Research and development expenses are an important part of our business to keep our existing products competitive, and to develop new innovative solutions with interesting market potential that will help us grow future revenues. These expenses include research work for cancer marker consumables and developing work, including engineering and industrial design, for histology and cytology laboratories worldwide. The major components consist of payroll-related costs for in-house scientific research, mechanical and electrical engineering, instrument related software development staff, prototype expenses and material purchased for R&D.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, research and development expenses decreased to $563 compared to $754 for the same period in 2017. The Company reduced the number of R&D staff by two employees in the first quarter of 2018.
 
 
 
Selling, General and Administrative
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, SG&A expenses were $1,681 as compared to $2,010 for the same period in 2017.  The reduction is due mostly to reduced staff and associated salary costs during the first six months of 2018. Also, the organization in Burgdorf, Germany consolidated its operations from two buildings to one, eliminating the rent and other expenses associated with the additional building.
 
Operating Loss
 
The operating loss of $988 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $2,138 for the same period in 2017, is directly related to higher sales and margin for the period and lower R&D and SG&A costs discussed above.
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense increased by 280% to $987 in the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $260 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.   The increase in interest expense in was the result of the increased convertible debt financing for GPB convertible notes payable and 2018 convertible notes (see Note 4 of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements).
 
Net Loss
 
The net loss for the six months period ended June 30, 2018, totaled $1,965, as compared to net loss of $2,580 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The decreased loss for 2018 directly related to higher sales and margin for the period and lower R&D and SG&A costs discussed above.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resource s
 
Due to promising new products and distributions contracts executed in the last two years and management changes with increased focus on the various sales channels and manufacturing and quality systems, management anticipates the profitability and cash flow of the business will improve. However, significant on-going operating expenditures may be necessary to manufacture and market new and existing products to achieve the accelerated sales growth targets outlined in the Company’s business plan. To realize the planned growth potential management will focus its efforts on 1.) finishing and gaining approval for the products currently under development and 2.) increase direct sales in the USA and continue to expand Chinese market sales by broadening the Company’s collaborations with the local distributor UNIC. We also will work on continuously optimizing manufacturing cost to increase our gross margin.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, we used net cash in operations of approximately $2,656 compared to $1,392 for the same period in 2017. During 2018, cash used in operations consisted of loss from operations, offset by amortization of debt discounts and debt issuance costs.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, net cash used in investing activities were $4 compared to $27 for the same period in 2017.  The improvement in this activity relates to lower purchases of equipment in 2018 compared to 2017.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018, financing activities provided $2,315 compared to $1,679 provided by financing activities for the same period in 2017. On February 6, 2018, the Company established a private placement of convertible notes and common stock to raise approximately $1,500,000, with an over-allotment option for an additional $750,000. The convertible notes have a conversion price of $0.075 per share. The investors received shares of the Company based on an assumed purchase price of $0.075 per share and the investor is not required to pay any additional consideration for the common stock. As of June 30, 2018 the Company had received $2,255,009 and converted $130,000 of accrued liabilities and issued 31,800,120 shares of common stock. The convertible notes mature five years from the closing date, have an interest rate of 12%, are secured obligations of the Company senior to other outstanding indebtedness and are expressly subordinate to the Company’s indebtedness with GPB.
 
 
 
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern.  This contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.  At June 30, 2018, the Company’s cash balance was $47,000 and its operating losses for the year ended December 31, 2017 and for the six months June 30, 2018 have used most of the Company’s liquid assets. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. However, the Company has approximately $519,000 in working capital as of June 30, 2018 compared to negative working capital of approximately $318,000 on December 31, 2017.  The Company raised additional cash of $2.4 million from the issuance of convertible notes payable starting in the first quarter of 2018 (see Note 4 of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements).
 
Management continues to expand its product offerings and has also expanded its sales and distribution channels during 2018.
 
If management is unsuccessful in completing its equity financing, management will begin negotiating with some of the Company's major vendors and lenders to extend the terms of their debt and also evaluate certain expenses that have been implemented for the Company’s growth strategy.    However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in these efforts. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
  
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
As of June 30, 2018, we did not have any relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partners, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. As such, we are not materially exposed to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if we had engaged in such relationships.
 
Item 4.            C ontrols and Procedures
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the “Exchange Act”) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that the information we are required to disclose in the reports filed or submitted by us under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
   
 
 
 
Part II. Other Information
 
Item 1.           Legal Proceedings.
 
On November 13, 2016, the Company’s former CFO filed a complaint against the Company and certain officers and directors of the Company in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, Case No. 1:16-cv-10554, whereby he is alleging (i) breach of the Illinois Wage and Protection Act, (ii) breach of employment contract and (iii) breach of loan agreement. He is seeking monetary damages up to approximately $1,665,972. The Company has denied the substantive allegations in the complaint and is vigorously defending the suit. Management believes that the claims set forth in the complaint against the Company are without merit. The Company has accrued wages and vacation of approximately $1.1 million and a $50,000 note payable to the former CFO at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The presiding Federal Judge has referred the lawsuit to mediation. No settlement was reach during the April 2017 meditation. The Company has proactively initiated settlement offer. In August 2017, the parties reached a Settlement Term Sheet whereby a final forbearance and settlement agreement must be filed with the magistrate judge. On November 8, 2017 the Plaintiff filed a motion to compel settlement with a meeting before a magistrate judge on November 14, 2017.
 
On February 20, 2018, the magistrate judge denied Plaintiff’s motion. On March 8, 2018, Plaintiff again filed a Motion to Enforce Settlement Agreement which has been opposed by the Company. On April 22, the judge ruled in favor of the Company and denied plaintiff’s motion to compel. The judge also instructed counsels for the Plaintiff and Defendant to conduct depositions and prepare pre-trial orders. Depositions have been completed and both sides have submitted drafts of the pre-trial order. A status hearing is set for September 6, 2018 to review the order. In the meantime, the Company has continued to reach out to the former CFO to discuss a possible settlement.
 
On May 15, 2018, a complaint was filed in the United States District Court of Northern California against the individual directors of the Company by Robert McCullough, Jr, and Dr. Zhongxi Zheng. The Company was named as a Nominal Defendant. The complaint alleges various claims including Breach of Fiduciary Obligations, Abuse of Control, Unjust Enrichment, Fraud, Intentional Misrepresentation and Negligent Representation. The suit seeks certain declaratory relief, injunctive relief and an accounting. Management believes these claims are frivolous and without any merit whatsoever, and are being filed for the sole purpose of harassing the named Defendants and to leverage a more beneficial settlement in the suit discussed in the paragraph above. Further, management believes that the suit was filed in a court having no personal jurisdiction over any of the named Defendants, The Company and individual directors will vigorously defend against this suit and seek to have it immediately dismissed. If successful, Defendants will seek attorneys’ fees and appropriate sanctions.
 
Item 2.            U nregis tered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2018 the Company had received proceeds of $2,255,009 from the issuance of convertible notes and converted $130,000 of accrued liabilities into convertible notes and issued 31,800,120 shares of common stock pursuant to the terms of the convertible note agreements. The convertible notes mature five years from the closing date, have an interest rate of 12%, are secured obligations of the Company senior to other outstanding indebtedness and are expressly subordinate to the Company’s indebtedness with GPB.
  
Item 3.           Defaults up on Senior Securities.
 
On June 29, 2018, the Company signed a first amendment to the Forbearance Agreement with GPB DEBT HOLDING II, LLC (“Lender”), whereby the Lender agreed to forbear its exercise of registration rights pursuant to Section 4.9 of the Securities Purchase Agreement dated September 26, 2017 (“SPA”), and   with respect to the maintenance of the required interest reserve account pursuant to Section 4.14 of the SPA, until September 30, 2018.
