Notes to the financial statements

 

NOTE 1    -GENERAL

 

A.Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (formerly: Golden Hand Resources Inc.) (the "Company") was incorporated in the State of Washington on September 22, 2000.

 

B.On May 21, 2004, the former major stockholders of the Company entered into a purchase agreement with a group of private investors, who purchased from the former major stockholders 6,880,000 shares of the then issued and outstanding 10,238,000 shares of Common Stock.

 

C.On July 8, 2004, the Company entered into a licensing agreement with Ramot of Tel Aviv University Ltd. ("Ramot"), to acquire certain stem cell technology (see Note 4). Subsequent to this agreement, the Company decided to focus on the development of novel cell therapies for neurodegenerative diseases based on the acquired technology and research to be conducted and funded by the Company.

 

Following the licensing agreement dated July 8, 2004, the management of the Company decided to abandon all old activities related to the sale of the digital data recorder product. The discontinuation of this activity was accounted for under the provision of Statement of Financial Accounting Standard ASC 360-10 (formerly "SFAS" 144), "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets".

 

D.On October 25, 2004, the Company formed a wholly-owned subsidiary in Israel, Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Ltd. ("BCT").

 

E.On November 22, 2004, the Company changed its name from Golden Hand Resources Inc. to Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. to better reflect its new line of business in the development of novel cell therapies for neurodegenerative diseases. BCT, as defined below, owns all operational property and equipment.

 

F.On September 17, 2006, the Company changed the Company's fiscal year-end from March 31 to December 31.

 

G.In December 2006, the Company changed its state of incorporation from Washington to Delaware.

 

H.Since its inception, the Company has devoted substantially all of its efforts to research and development, recruiting management and technical staff, acquiring assets and raising capital. In addition, the Company has not generated revenues. Accordingly, the Company is considered to be in the development stage, as defined in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 7, "Accounting and reporting by development Stage Enterprises" ASC 915-10 (formerly "SFAS No. 7").

 

I.In October 2010, the Israeli Ministry of Health (“MOH”) granted clearance for a Phase I/II clinical trial using the Company’s autologous NurOwn™ stem cell therapy in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (“ALS”), subject to some additional process specifications as well as completion of the sterility validation study for tests performed.

 

On February 23, 2011, the Company submitted to the MOH all the required documents. Following approval of the MOH, a Phase I/II clinical study for ALS patients using the Company’s autologous NurOwn™ stem cell therapy (the “Clinical Trial”) was initiated in June 2011.

 

In January 2012, the Company reported on an interim safety follow-up of the first 4 patients enrolled in its Clinical Trial indicating that no significant treatment-related adverse events were reported. The NurOwn™ treatment has thus so far proven to be safe, and has shown some initial indications of beneficial clinical effects.

 

J.In February 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) granted orphan drug designation to the Company’s NurOwn™ autologous adult stem cell product candidate for the treatment of ALS.

Notes to the financial statements

 

NOTE 1     -GENERAL (Cont.)

 

GOING CONCERN

 

As reflected in the accompanying financial statements, the Company’s operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012, resulted in a net loss of $872. The Company’s balance sheet reflects an accumulated deficit of $44,950. These conditions, together with the fact that the Company is a development stage Company and has no revenues nor are revenues expected in the near future, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue to operate as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue operating as a “going concern” is dependent on several factors, among them is its ability to raise sufficient additional working capital.

 

In 2009, the Company decided to focus only on the effort to commence clinical trials for ALS and such trials did commence in 2011.

 

In February 2011, the Company raised approximately $3.8 million from institutional and private investors. However, there can be no assurance that additional funds will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all.

 

These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets, carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that may be required should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 2     -SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The significant accounting policies applied in the annual financial statements of the Company as of December 31, 2011 are applied consistently in these financial statements.

 

NOTE 3     -UNAUDITED INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in a condensed format and include the consolidated financial operations of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary as of March 31, 2012 and for the three months then ended, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States relating to the preparation of financial statements for interim periods. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2012.

 

NOTE 4     -RESEARCH AND LICENSE AGREEMENT

 

The Company has a Research and License Agreement, as amended and restated, with Ramot. The Company obtained a waiver and release from Ramot pursuant to which Ramot agreed to an amended payment schedule regarding the Company's payment obligations under the Research and License Agreement and waived all claims against the Company resulting from the Company's previous defaults and non-payment under the Research and License Agreement. The waiver and release amended and restated the original payment schedule under the original agreement providing for payments during the initial research period and additional payments for any extended research period.

On December 24, 2009, the Company and Ramot entered into a settlement agreement which amended the Research and License Agreement, as amended and restated pursuant to which, among other things, the following matters were agreed upon:

 

a)Ramot released the Company from its obligation to fund the extended research period in the total amount of $1,140. Therefore, the Company deleted an amount in 2009, equal to $760 from it research and development expenses that were previously expensed.

 

b)Past due amounts of $240 for the initial research period plus interest of $32 owed by the Company to Ramot was converted into 1,120,000 shares of common stock on December 30, 2009. Ramot was required to deposit the shares with a broker and only sell the shares in the open market after 185 days from the issuance date.

 

c)In the event that the total proceeds generated by sales of the shares on December 31, 2010, together with the March 31, 2010 payment, are less than $240 on or prior to December 31, 2010, then on such date the Company shall pay to Ramot the difference between the proceeds that Ramot has received from sales of the shares up to such date together with the September Payment (if any) that has been transferred to Ramot up to such date, and $240. Related compensation in the amount of $51 was recorded as research and development expenses.

 

In January 2011 Ramot exercised additional 167,530 Common Stock of the Company, for $35, which finalized the sale of the 1,120,000 Common Stock of the Company granted to Ramot for $235. In February 2011 the Company paid the remaining $5 and finalized the balance due to Ramot according to the settlement agreement between the parties dated December 24, 2009.

Company Overview

 

Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (“Brainstorm” or the “Company”) is a biotechnology company developing innovative adults stem cell therapies for highly debilitating neurodegenerative disorders such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease (PD). These devastating diseases have limited treatment options and as such represent highly unmet medical needs.

 

BrainStorm’s proprietary process for propagation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC), and their differentiation into NeuroTrophic factor-(NTF) secreting cells (MSC-NTF), and their transplantation at, or near, the site of damage, offers the hope of repairing degenerated tissues and curing the underlying pathology, rather than simply treating its symptoms.

 

BrainStorm’s approach has a high safety profile based on its use of autologous cells, which are free of the risk of rejection, tumor formation, controversy or ethical issues.

 

Our core technology was developed in collaboration with prominent neurologist Prof. Eldad Melamed, former head of Neurology of the Rabin Medical Center and member of the Scientific Committee of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, and expert cell biologist Prof. Daniel Offen of the Felsenstein Medical Research Center of Tel Aviv University.

 

The Company holds exclusive worldwide rights to commercialize the technology, through a licensing agreement with Ramot, the technology transfer company of Tel Aviv University, Israel.

 

37
 

 

As a result of limited cash resources and the desire to take a faster path to clinical trials, since the fourth quarter of 2008 the Company has focused all of its efforts on ALS. However, the company intends to begin pre-clinical testing of Multiple Sclerosis during 2012. 

 

In February 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) granted Orphan Drug designation to NurOwn, the Company’s autologous adult stem cell product candidate for the treatment of ALS. Orphan Drug status entitles BrainStorm to seven years of marketing exclusivity for NurOwn upon regulatory approval, as well as the opportunity to apply for grant funding from the US government of up to $400,000 per year for four years to defray costs of clinical trial expenses, tax credits for clinical research expenses and potential exemption from the FDA's application user fee.

 

In June 2011, BrainStorm initiated a Phase I/II clinical trial for the treatment of ALS with NurOwn at the Hadassah University Medical Center’s in Jerusalem, after receiving approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health (“MoH”). BrainStorm is the first company to receive clearance from the MoH to carry out a differentiated stem-cell based therapeutic clinical trial in Israel. The Company’s production process for manufacturing clinical grade MSC-NTF cells is in full compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) requirements.

 

In January 2012, BrainStorm announced interim results of its Phase I/II clinical trial. The one month follow-up of the first four ALS patients treated with the Company's NurOwn therapy indicated that the therapy was safe, did not cause any adverse side effects, and showed some initial positive clinical indications.

 

Our efforts are currently directed at:

 

  · Completing a Phase I/II clinical trial in Israel;
  · Initiating a Phase II clinical trial in the USA;
  · Initiating pre-clinical studies on Multiple Sclerosis; and
  · Submitting an IND to the FDA.

 

Our Approach

 

The Company's approach to treatment of neurodegenerative diseases with autologous adult stem cells includes a multi-step process beginning with harvesting of undifferentiated stem cells from the patient's own bone marrow, and concluding with transplantation of differentiated, neurotrophic factor-secreting mesenchymal stem cells (MSC-NTF) into the same patient – intrathecally (IT) and/or intramuscularly (IM). This approach is based on pre-clinical data documented by our research team, led by Prof. Melamed and Prof. Offen.

 

Melamed and Offen's group has shown that human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells can be expanded and induced to differentiate into two types of brain cells, neuron-like and astrocyte-like, each having different therapeutic potential, as follows:

 

In-vitro differentiation of the expanded human bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells in a proprietary medium led to the generation of neurotrophic-factors secreting cells. The in-vitro differentiated cells were shown to express and secrete GDNF, as well as other NTFs, into the growth medium. GDNF is a neurotrophic-factor, previously shown to protect, preserve and even restore neuronal function, particularly dopaminergic cells in PD, but also neuron function in other neurodegenerative pathologies such as ALS and Huntington’s disease. Unfortunately, therapeutic application of GDNF is hampered by its poor brain penetration and stability. Attempting to infuse the protein directly to the brain is impractical and the alternative, using GDNF gene therapy, suffers from the limitations and risks of using viral vectors. Our preliminary results show that our NTF secreting cells, when transplanted into a 6-OHDA lesion PD rat model, show significant efficacy. Within weeks of the transplantation, there was an improvement of more than 50% in the animals’ characteristic disease symptoms.

 

38
 

 

We have optimized the proprietary processes for induction of differentiation of human bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells into differentiated cells that produce NTF (MSC-NTF).  The optimization and process development is conducted in Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) compliance.

 

NurOwn program one (current) – Based on the above pre-clinical results, the Company initiated a Phase I/II clinical trial at the Hadassah Medical Center in June 2011 for treatment of ALS patients with MSC-NTF cells. An interim report of this ongoing clinical trial will be submitted to the Ministry of Health in Q3 2012.

 

NurOwn program two (future) – Based on positive proof-of-concept results with MSC-NTF cells for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the Company plans to initiate a pre-clinical study for this disease in Q2 2012.

 

Our approach comprises the following steps:

 

  · Bone marrow aspiration from patient;

 

  · Isolation and expansion of the mesenchymal stem cells;

 

  · Differentiation of the expanded stem cells into neurotrophic-factor secreting (MSC-NTF) cells; and

 

  · Autologous transplantation into the patient at the site of damage.

 

Results of Operations

 

The Company has been a development stage company since its inception. For the period from inception (September 22, 2000) until March 31, 2012, the Company has not generated any revenues from operations. The Company does not expect to generate revenues from operations until 2014 at the earliest. In addition, the Company has incurred operating costs and other expenses of approximately $879,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2012, and approximately $42,301,000 for the period from inception (September 22, 2000) until March 31, 2012. Operating expenses incurred since inception were approximately $17,513,000 for general and administrative expenses and $24,788,000 for research and development costs.

 

Research and Development, net:

 

Research and development expenses, net for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $369,000 and $270,000, respectively. In addition, our grant from The Office of the Chief Scientist increased by $140,000 to $240,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $100,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

The increase in research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 is primarily due to: (i) in June 2011, the Company began clinical trials in ALS patients, in Hadassah, under which the Company paid $340,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2012; (ii) an increase of $65,000 in payroll costs due to recruitment of four additional employees to conduct the clinical trials.

 

General and Administrative:

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $510,000 and $258,000, respectively.

 

The increase in general and administrative expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2012 from the three month period ended March 31, 2011 is primarily due to: (i) an increase of $170,000 in compensation expenses for stock granted to directors and employees; (ii) an increase of $70,000 in legal, audit and public relations activity.

 

39
 

 

Financial Expenses:

 

Financial income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $11,000, compared to a financial expense of $177,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

The financial income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 is mainly from conversion exchange rate and income on deposits in banks. The financial expense for the three months ended March 31, 2011 is primarily attributable to $192,000 financial expense from conversion of debt to a subcontractor to our common stock, balanced by financial income of $15,000 due to the conversion exchange rate.

 

Net Loss:

 

Net loss for the three months ended on March 31, 2012 was $872,000, as compared to a net loss of $705,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Net loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $0.01, as it also was for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

The weighted average number of shares of common stock used in computing basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was 126,591,262, compared to 108,895,199 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

The increase in the weighted average number of shares of common stock used in computing basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was due to (i) the issuance of shares in a private placement, (ii) the exercise of options and warrants and (iii) the issuance of shares to service providers.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has financed its operations since inception primarily through private sales of its common stock and warrants and the issuance of convertible promissory notes. At March 31, 2012, we had $1,775,000 in total current assets and $1,290,000 in total current liabilities.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $746,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Cash used for operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily attributed to clinical trial costs, payroll costs, rent, outside legal and audit fee expenses and public relations expenses.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $52,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $20,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 is primarily attributable to exercise of options to common stock.

 

Our material cash needs for the next 12 months include the payments due under an agreement with Hadassah to conduct clinical trials in ALS patients, under which we must pay to Hadassah an amount of (i) up to $32,225 per patient (up to $773,400 in the aggregate) and (ii) $65,000 per month for rent and operation of the GMP facilities in anticipation of Hadassah's clinical trials.

 

Our other material cash needs for the next 12 months will include payments of (i) employee salaries, (ii) patents, (iii) construction fees for facilities to be used in our research and development and (iv) fees to our consultants and legal advisors.

 

We will need to raise substantial additional capital in order to meet our anticipated expenses. If we are not able to raise substantial additional capital, we may not be able to continue to function as a going concern and we may have to cease operations. Even if we obtain funding sufficient to continue functioning as a going concern, we will be required to raise a substantial amount of capital in the future in order to reach profitability and to complete the commercialization of our products. Our ability to fund these future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the following:

 

40
 

 

·our ability to obtain funding from third parties, including any future collaborative partners;

 

·the scope, rate of progress and cost of our clinical trials and other research and development programs;

 

·the time and costs required to gain regulatory approvals;
·the terms and timing of any collaborative, licensing and other arrangements that we may establish;

 

·the costs of filing, prosecuting, defending and enforcing patents, patent applications, patent claims, trademarks and other intellectual property rights;

 

·the effect of competition and market developments; and

 

·future pre-clinical and clinical trial results.

 

Critical Accounting Policies 

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make judgments, 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 as well as the reported revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. We continually evaluate our judgments, estimates and assumptions. We base our estimates on the terms of underlying agreements, our expected course of development, historical experience and other factors we believe are reasonable based on the circumstances, the results of which form our management’s basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

There were no significant changes to our critical accounting policies during the quarter ended March 31, 2012. For information about critical accounting policies, see the discussion of critical accounting policies in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

We have no off balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, or capital resources.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures 

 

As of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as a result of the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting described below, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective, as of the end of the period covered by this report, to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that the information required to be disclosed by us in such reports is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Management identified the following material weakness in its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011, which continued to exist as of March 31, 2012:

 

·The Company did not maintain effective controls over certain aspects of the financial reporting process because we lacked a sufficient complement of personnel with a level of accounting expertise and an adequate supervisory review structure that is commensurate with the Company’s financial reporting requirements.

 

Nevertheless, based on a number of factors, including the performance of additional procedures performed by management designed to ensure the reliability of our financial reporting, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer believe that the consolidated financial statements included with this quarterly report fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows as of the dates, and for the periods, presented, in conformity with U.S. GAAP.

 

Management’s Remediation Initiatives

 

We plan to develop policies and procedures for training of personnel or external advisers to verify that we have a sufficient number of personnel with knowledge, experience and training in the application of generally accepted accounting principles commensurate with our financial reporting and U.S. GAAP requirements. Where necessary, we will supplement personnel with qualified external advisors. Additionally, where appropriate, we plan to identify training courses on accounting principles and procedures that would benefit our accounting and finance personnel.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II: OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

For a description of legal proceedings affecting the Company refer to Part I, Item 3, “Legal Proceedings” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. There were no additional material developments to the legal proceedings affecting the Company in the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012.

 

42
 

 

From time to time, we may become involved in litigation relating to claims arising out of operations in the normal course of business, which we consider routine and incidental to our business. We currently are not a party to any material legal proceedings, other than as described in Part I, Item 3, “Legal Proceedings” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, the adverse outcome of which, in management’s opinion, would have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operation or financial condition.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

There have not been any material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. In addition to the other information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, you should carefully consider the risk factors discussed below and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

On April 13, 2012, pursuant to the Hadasit Agreement, we issued a warrant to purchase up to 33,334 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.00005 per share, exercisable for a period of 10 years, to Hadasit Medical Research Services and Development Ltd. The issuance of these securities was effected without registration in reliance upon Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.  No underwriters were involved with the issuance of such securities and no commissions were paid in connection with such transactions.

 

On April 22, 2012, we issued 834,729 shares of our common stock to Yossef Levy in connection with his exercise of a warrant to purchase common stock previously issued.  The exercise price paid upon exercise of the warrant was $0.01 per share for a total of $8,347, which has been received by us.  The issuance of these securities was effected without registration in reliance on Section 4(2) of the Securities Act as a sale by the Company not involving a public offering. No underwriters were involved with the issuance of such securities.

 

Item 5. Other Information.

 

On May 10, 2012, the Company entered into a Warrant Amendment Agreement (the “Amendment”) with ACCBT Corp. (the “Investor”), a company under the control of Mr. Chaim Lebovits, the President of the Company, pursuant to which the Company and the Investor agreed to amend each warrant previously issued by the Company to the Investor.

 

Pursuant to the Amendment, upon effectiveness of a six month lock-up agreement entered into by the Investor in connection with a proposed offering of common stock by the Company, the then current expiration date for each warrant held by the Investor shall be automatically extended by an additional 18 months. If the proposed offering is not completed by October 31, 2012, the Amendment will automatically terminate and be of no further force or effect.

 

As previously disclosed, pursuant to the terms of a certain Subscription Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to the Investor up to 27,500,000 shares (the “Subscription Shares”) of the Company’s common stock for an aggregate subscription price of up to $5.0 million and for no additional consideration, if the Investor purchased the Subscription Shares, warrants to purchase up to 30,250,000 shares of common stock . Per the terms of the Subscription Agreement, as amended to date, the current expiration date for each warrant held by the Investor is November 5, 2013. 

 

The foregoing description is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the Amendment filed as an exhibit hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2012, we made no material changes to the procedures by which stockholders may recommend nominees to our Board of Directors, as described in our most recent proxy statement.
