Organization, Description of Business, Basis of Presentation, Acquisition and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
We are an emerging leader in the field of precision medicine, enabling individualized therapies in the field of oncology through our diagnostic products and services and molecular markers. We develop, commercialize and provide molecular- and biomarker-based tests and services that enable physicians to personalize the clinical management of each individual patient by providing genomic information to better diagnose, monitor and inform cancer treatment and that enable biotech and pharmaceutical companies engaged in oncology trials to better select candidate populations and reduce adverse drug reactions by providing information regarding genomic factors influencing subject responses to therapeutics. We have a comprehensive, disease-focused oncology testing portfolio. Our tests and techniques target a wide range of cancers, covering nine of the top ten cancers in prevalence in the United States, with additional unique capabilities offered by our FDA-cleared Tissue of Origin® test for identifying difficult to diagnose tumor types or poorly differentiated metastatic disease. Following the acquisition of vivoPharm, Pty Ltd. (“vivoPharm”), as discussed in more detail below, we provide contract research services, focused primarily on unique specialized studies to guide drug discovery and development programs in the oncology and immune-oncology fields.
We were incorporated in the State of Delaware on April 8, 1999 and have offices and state-of-the-art laboratories located in California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Shanghai (China), Victoria (Australia) and Hyderabad (India). Our laboratories comply with the highest regulatory standards as appropriate for the services they deliver including CLIA, CAP, NY State, California State and NABL (India). Our services are built on a foundation of world-class scientific knowledge and intellectual property in solid and blood-borne cancers, as well as strong academic relationships with major cancer centers such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Mayo Clinic, and the National Cancer Institute.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions for interim reporting as prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary to make the financial statements not misleading have been included. As such, the information included in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 23, 2017. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2016, included herein was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date, but does not include all disclosures including notes required by GAAP. Interim financial results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any future interim period or for the year ending December 31, 2017.
Foreign Currency Translation
During the three months ended September 30, 2017, we started accounting for our foreign currency translation in other comprehensive income (loss). Assets and liabilities recorded in foreign currencies are translated at the exchange rate on the balance sheet date. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange prevailing during the year. Translation adjustments for prior periods have not been presented, as they are not material.
Liquidity and Going Concern
At September 30, 2017, our cash position and history of losses required management to asses our ability to continue operating as a going concern, according to FASB Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (“ASU 2014-15”). Management evaluated the history and operational losses to have a material effect on our ability to continue as a going concern, unless we take actions to alleviate those conditions. Our primary sources of liquidity have been funds generated from our debt financings and equity financings. We have reduced, and plan to continue reducing, our operating expenses, and expect to grow our revenue in 2017 and beyond, and have also increased our cash collections from our customers and third-party payors and plan to continue to improve our cash collection results.
Management believes that its existing cash and cash equivalents, taken together with the borrowings available from the Silicon Valley Bank line of credit and the common stock purchase agreement with Aspire Capital Fund, LLC (described in Note 3), will be sufficient to fund the Company's operations for at least the next twelve months after filing this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.
Acquisition of vivoPharm
On August 15, 2017, we purchased all of the outstanding stock of vivoPharm, with its principal place of business in Victoria, Australia, in a transaction valued at approximately $1.2 million in cash, $9.5 million in the Company's common stock based on the closing price of the stock on August 15, 2017, plus an estimated settlement of $345,000 for excess working capital in accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying balance sheet. The Company has deposited in escrow 20% of the stock consideration until the expiration of twelve months from the closing date to serve as the initial source for any indemnification claims and adjustments. The Company had an estimated $150,000 in transaction costs associated with the purchase of vivoPharm, which were expensed during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.
Prior to the acquisition, vivoPharm was a contract research organization (“CRO”) that specialized in planning and conducting unique, specialized studies to guide drug discovery and development programs with a concentration in oncology and immuno-oncology. The transaction is being accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations in accordance with GAAP. Under this method, the total consideration transferred to consummate the acquisition is being allocated to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their respective fair values as of the closing date of the acquisition. The acquisition method of accounting requires extensive use of estimates and judgments to allocate the consideration transferred to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Accordingly, the allocation of the consideration transferred is preliminary and will be adjusted upon completion of the final valuation of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The final valuation is expected to be completed as soon as practicable but no later than twelve months after the closing date of the acquisition.
The estimated allocation of the purchase price as of August 15, 2017 consists of the following (in thousands):
The following table provides certain pro forma financial information for the Company as if the acquisition of vivoPharm discussed above occurred on January 1, 2016 (in thousands except per share amounts):
The pro forma numbers above are derived from historical numbers of the Company and vivoPharm. Over time the operations of vivoPharm will be integrated into the operations of the Company. At the current time, we do not have enough information to prepare a reliable estimate of any possible changes.
The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 include the operations of vivoPharm from August 15, 2017, which accounted for approximately $794,000 of the Company’s consolidated Discovery Services revenue. The net income of vivoPharm that is included in the Company’s results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 was approximately $380,000.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2014-09”), requiring an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. As issued and amended, ASU 2014-09 will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective and permits the use of either a full retrospective or retrospective with cumulative effect transition method. The updated standard becomes effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Early adoption is permitted in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017. The Company believes its Biopharma Service and Discovery Service revenues will be affected by the new standard. The Company is presently evaluating all of its contracts for performance obligations and variable consideration provisions that may affect the timing of revenue recognition subsequent to ASU 2014-09’s adoption. The Company expects to adopt the new standard on January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective approach, which involves applying the new standard to all contracts initiated on or after the effective date and recording an adjustment to opening equity for pre-existing contracts that have remaining obligations as of the effective date.
