Note 1. Organization and Description of Business 

 

Vyant Bio, Inc. (“Vyant” or “the Company”) is an innovative biotechnology company focused on partnering with pharmaceutical and other biotechnology companies to identify novel and repurposed therapeutics through the integration of human-derived biology with data science technologies and Investigational New Drug (“IND”) expertise.

 

The Company has two wholly-owned operating subsidiaries StemoniX, Inc. (“StemoniX”) and vivoPharm Pty Ltd (“vivoPharm”). StemoniX develops and manufactures high-density, at-scale human induced pluripotent stem cell (“iPSC”) derived neural and cardiac screening platforms for drug discovery and development. vivoPharm has an extensive set of anti-tumor referenced data based on predictive xenograft and syngeneic tumor models to provide discovery services such as contract research services, focused primarily on unique specialized studies to guide drug discovery. By combining the two companies, Vyant intends to build on the historic businesses and empower the discovery of new medicines and biomarkers through the convergence of its novel human biology and software technologies.

 

In accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Company has omitted footnote disclosures that would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read together with the audited financial statements of StemoniX, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2020, and notes thereto included in the Company’s April 5, 2021 Form 8-K report as filed with the SEC.

 

In the opinion of the Company’s management, the accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting solely of those which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary to present fairly its financial position as of March 31, 2021 and the results of its operations, cash flows and changes in stockholders’ equity for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.  The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire 2021 year.

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures worldwide. Many of the Company’s customers worldwide were impacted by COVID-19 and temporarily closed their facilities which impacted revenues in the first half of 2020 for StemoniX. Revenues continued in the first half of 2020 for the historical Vyant Bio, Inc. (formerly known as Cancer Genetics, Inc. (“CGI”)) business as signed contracts were already in place. Revenues at historical Vyant Bio, began to slow in the second half of 2020 as fewer contracts were signed due to COVID 19 and the studies related to contracts signed pre COVID-19 were completed. While the impact of the pandemic on our business has lessened, the global outbreak of COVID-19 continues with new variants and is impacting the way we operate our business as well as in certain circumstances limiting the availability of lab supplies. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may impact the Company’s future business will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, such as the availability and effectiveness of vaccines, the duration of the outbreak, travel restrictions and social distancing in the United States and other countries, business closures or business disruptions, and the effectiveness of actions taken in the United States and other countries to contain and treat the disease.

 

 

The Company is actively monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business, results of operations and financial condition. The full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will directly or indirectly impact the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition in the future is unknown at this time and will depend on future developments that are highly unpredictable.
