The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and include the results of CytoSorbents Corporation (the “Parent”), CytoSorbents, Inc., its wholly-owned operating subsidiary (the “Subsidiary”), and CytoSorbents Europe GmbH, its wholly-owned European subsidiary (the “European Subsidiary”), collectively referred to as “the Company.” Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures required in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. Interim statements are subject to possible adjustments in connection with the annual audit of the Company's accounts for the year ended December 31, 2012. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) which the Company considers necessary for the fair presentation of the Company's consolidated financial position as of June 30, 2012 and the results of its operations and cash flows for six and three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, and for the period January 22, 1997 (date of inception) to June 30, 2012. Results for the six and three months ended are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of the Company and the notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 as included in the Company’s Form 10-K filed with the Commission on March 30, 2012.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has experienced negative cash flows from operations since inception and has a deficit accumulated during the development stage at June 30, 2012 of $96,272,569. The Company is not currently generating significant revenue and is dependent on the proceeds of present and future financings to fund its research, development and commercialization program. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company is continuing its fund-raising efforts.  Although the Company has historically been successful in raising additional capital through equity and debt financings, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital in the future or that it will be on favorable terms.  Furthermore, if the Company is successful in raising the additional financing, there can be no assurance that the amount will be sufficient to complete the Company's plans. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

 The Company is a development stage company and has not yet generated significant revenues from inception to June 30, 2012. Since inception, the Company's expenses relate primarily to research and development, organizational activities, clinical manufacturing, regulatory compliance and operational strategic planning.  Although the Company has made advances on these matters, there can be no assurance that the Company will continue to be successful regarding these issues, nor can there be any assurance that the Company will successfully implement its long-term strategic plans.

 

The Company has developed an intellectual property portfolio, including 29 issued and multiple pending patents, covering materials, methods of production, systems incorporating the technology and multiple medical uses.

2.   PRINCIPAL BUSINESS ACTIVITY AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:

 

Nature of Business

The Company, through its subsidiary CytoSorbents, Inc., is engaged in the research, development and commercialization of medical devices with its platform blood purification technology incorporating a proprietary adsorbent polymer technology.  The Company, through its European Subsidiary, has commenced initial sales and marketing related operations for the CytoSorb® device in the European Union. The Company is focused on developing this technology for multiple applications in the medical field, specifically to provide improved blood purification for the treatment of acute and chronic health complications associated with blood toxicity. In March 2011, the Company received CE Mark approval for its CytoSorb® device.  As of June 30, 2012, the Company had only limited commercial operations and, accordingly, is in the development stage.  The Company has yet to generate any significant revenue and has no assurance of future revenue.

 

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Parent, CytoSorbents Corporation, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, CytoSorbents, Inc. and CytoSorbents Europe GmbH. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Development Stage Corporation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of accounting and reporting by development stage enterprises.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

  

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable are customer obligations due under normal trade terms. The Company sells its devices to various hospitals and distributors. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of customers’ financial condition and does not require collateral.  Management reviews accounts receivable periodically to determine collectability. Balances that are determined to be uncollectible are written off.to the allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts contains a general accrual for estimated bad debts and had a balance of zero at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 .

 

Inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 the Company’s inventory was comprised of finished goods, which amounted to $241,920 and $192,340, respectively, and work in process which amounted to $293,338 and $238,682, respectively.

 

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided for by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of their economic useful lives or the term of the related leases. Gains and losses on depreciable assets retired or sold are recognized in the statements of operations in the year of disposal. Repairs and maintenance expenditures are expensed as incurred.

 

Patents

Legal costs incurred to establish patents are capitalized. When patents are issued, capitalized costs are amortized on the straight-line method over the related patent term. In the event a patent is abandoned, the net book value of the patent is written off.

 

Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets

The Company assesses the impairment of patents and other long-lived assets under accounting standards for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. For long-lived assets to be held and used, the Company recognizes an impairment loss only if its carrying amount is not recoverable through its undiscounted cash flows and measures the impairment loss based on the difference between the carrying amount and fair value.

 

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when it is earned. Delivery of the goods generally completes the criteria for revenue recognition .

 

Research and Development

All research and development costs, payments to laboratories and research consultants are expensed when incurred.

 

Income Taxes

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method prescribed by accounting standards for accounting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are recorded for temporary differences between financial statement carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities reflect the tax rates expected to be in effect for the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is provided if it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. Under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code the net operating losses generated prior to the reverse merger may be limited due to the change in ownership. Additionally, net operating losses generated subsequent to the reverse merger may be limited in the event of changes in ownership.  

 

9
 

 

The Company follows accounting standards associated with uncertain tax positions. The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits at December 31, 2011 or 2010. The Company files tax returns in the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions. The Company currently has no open years prior to December 31, 2008 and has no income tax related penalties or interest for the periods presented in these financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Significant estimates in these financials are the valuation of options granted, the valuation of preferred shares issued as stock dividends and valuation methods used in determining any debt discount associated with convertible securities.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

The Company maintains cash balances, at times, with financial institutions in excess of amounts insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Management monitors the soundness of these institutions in an effort to minimize its collection risk of these balances.

 

Financial Instruments

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, accounts payable, notes payable, and other debt obligations approximate their fair values due to their short-term nature.

 

Net Loss Per Common Share

Basic EPS is computed by dividing income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. The computation of Diluted EPS does not assume conversion, exercise or contingent exercise of securities that would have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings (See Note 6).

 

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation under the recognition requirements of accounting standards for accounting for stock-based compensation, for employees and directors whereby each option granted is valued at fair market value on the date of grant. Under these accounting standards, the fair value of each option is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

 

The Company also follows the guidance of accounting standards for accounting for equity instruments that are issued to other than employees for acquiring, or in conjunction with selling, goods or services for equity instruments issued to consultants.

 

Effects of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

There have been no recently issued accounting standards, which would have an impact on the Company’s financial statements.

3. CONVERTIBLE NOTES

 

During February 2012 the Company issued 12-month Promissory Notes in the aggregate principal amount of $700,000, which accrue interest at the rate of 8% per annum. Per the terms of the Promissory Notes issued in February, the investors will be repaid in equity of the Company, not cash. During the term of the Notes, investors may at any time convert outstanding principal and interest into Common Stock of the Company at a rate of $0.15 per share. In addition, during the term of the Note, should the Company complete any subsequent financing, debt or equity, in an aggregate amount greater or equal to $750,000, which includes any equity component or the right to convert into equity, the investor shall have the option to exchange any outstanding principal and interest of the Note into the new financing. Pursuant to the terms of the Promissory Note, the note holder will receive warrant coverage in the form of five year warrants to purchase that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) 25% of the Principal, by (y) $0.15, with the resulting number of shares having an exercise price equal to $0.175 per share of Common Stock. The warrants have a cashless exercise provision. The Promissory Notes do not have registration rights for the shares underlying the notes or warrants.

 

The Company allocates the proceeds associated with the issuance of promissory notes based on the relative fair value of the promissory notes and warrants. Additionally, the Company evaluates if the embedded conversion option results in a beneficial conversion feature by comparing the relative fair value allocated to the promissory notes to the market value of the underlying common stock subject to conversion. In connection with the promissory note issuances during the three months ended March 31, 2012 the Company received total proceeds of $700,000. The Company allocated the total proceeds in accordance with FASB Codification Topic 470 based on the related fair value as follows: $612,300 was allocated to the promissory notes and $38,788 to the warrants. Additionally, the embedded conversion feature resulted in a beneficial conversion feature in the amount of $48,912. The value assigned to the warrants resulting from the relative fair value calculation as well as the value of the beneficial conversion feature is recorded as a debt discount and is presented in the consolidated balance sheets. The debt discount is being amortized to interest expense over the term of the promissory notes. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 Convertible Notes in the principal and accrued interest amount of $395,153 were converted into 3,951,540 Common shares resulting in a reduction of debt discount and charge to interest expense in the amount of $235,762.

 

4. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY (DEFICIT)

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded non-cash stock dividends totaling $1,241,121 in connection with the issuance of 3,307.91 shares of Series B Preferred Stock and 73,190 shares of Series A Preferred Stock as a stock dividend to its preferred shareholders as of June 30, 2012.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, 140.87 Series B Preferred Shares were converted into 388,603 Common shares.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, 3,003 Series A Preferred Shares were converted into 30,030 Common shares.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company incurred stock-based compensation expense due to the issuance of stock options, and amortization of unvested stock options. The aggregate expense for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is $4,532 of which $3,866 and $666 is presented in research and development expenses and general and administrative expenses, respectively.

 

The Company has pre-approved options to purchase in the aggregate, up to a total of 408,000 shares of common stock to be issued and priced at the end of December 2012 to Directors. These options have been valued as of the pre-approval date. The aggregate expense of these options for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is approximately $13,692, all of which is presented in general and administrative expenses.

 

The summary of the stock option activity for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is as follows:

 

       Weighted   Weighted 
       Average   Average 
       Exercise
Price
   Remaining 
   Shares   per Share   Life (Years) 
             
Outstanding, January 1, 2012   39,833,438   $0.39    7.2 
Granted   868,000   $0.15    4.8 
Cancelled   (114,254)  $33.57     
Exercised      $     
Outstanding June 30, 2012   40,587,184   $0.29    6.7 

 

11
 

 

The fair value of each stock option was estimated using the Black Scholes pricing model which takes into account as of the grant date the exercise price (ranging from $0.129 to $0.168 per share) and expected life of the stock option ( ranging from 5-10 years), the current price of the underlying stock and its expected volatility (approximately 28 percent), expected dividends (-0- percent) on the stock and the risk free interest rate (0.8 to 1.9 percent) for the term of the stock option.

 

At June 30, 2012, the aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding and currently exercisable amounted to approximately $1,266,000.

 

The summary of the status of the Company’s non-vested options for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is as follows:

 

       Weighted 
       Average 
       Grant 
       Date 
   Shares   Fair Value 
         
Non-vested, January 1, 2012   11,910,000   $0.051 
Granted   868,000   $0.050 
Cancelled        
Vested   (886,000)  $0.047 
           
Non-vested, June 30, 2012   11,892,000   $0.051 

 

As of June 30, 2012, approximately $42,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to stock options is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.39 years. Due to the uncertainty over whether approximately 9,957,000 options granted during the year ended December 31, 2010 will vest based on performance milestones in the Company’s long term incentive plan, no charge for these options has been recorded in the consolidated statements of operations for the six and three months ended June 30, 2012. The grant date fair value of these unvested options amounts to approximately $478,000.  The Company will evaluate on an ongoing basis the probability and likelihood of any of these performance milestones being achieved and will accrue charges as it becomes likely that they will be achieved .

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company has the following warrants to purchase common stock outstanding:

 

Number of Shares   Warrant

During the six months ended June 30, 2012 Convertible Notes in the principal and accrued interest amount of $395,153 were converted into 3,951,540 Common shares.

 

In December 2011, the Company terminated the original Purchase Agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”) and executed a new purchase agreement, or the New Purchase Agreement, and a registration rights agreement, or the New Registration Rights Agreement, with LPC. Under the New Purchase Agreement, LPC is obligated, under certain conditions, to purchase from the Company up to $8.5 million of our Common Stock, from time to time over a thirty-two (32) month period.

 

The Company has the right, but not the obligation, to direct LPC to purchase up to $8,500,000 of its Common Stock in amounts up to $50,000 as often as every two business days under certain conditions. The Company can also accelerate the amount of its common stock to be purchased under certain circumstances. No sales of shares may occur at a purchase price below $0.10 per share or without a registration statement having been declared effective. The purchase price of the shares will be based on the market prices of our shares at the time of sale as computed under the New Purchase Agreement without any fixed discount. The Company may at any time at its sole discretion terminate the New Purchase Agreement without fee, penalty or cost upon one business days notice.

 

There was no up front commitment fee paid to LPC for entering into the new agreement. In the event the Company directs LPC to purchase up to $8,500,000 of its Common Stock, the Company is obligated to issue up to an additional 1,634,615 commitment fee shares of Common Stock on a pro rata basis. LPC may not assign any of its rights or obligations under the Purchase Agreement.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2012 the Company received approximately $2,100,000 as proceeds from the sale of 16,022,042 shares of Common Stock per the terms of the Purchase Agreement with LPC at an average price of approximately $0.13 per share of Common. Per the terms of the Purchase Agreement the Company also issued an additional 403,832 shares of Common Stock as additional Commitment Fee shares. The fair value of the Commitment shares of $53,432 has been recorded as a cost of raising capital.

5.   COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Employment Agreements

 

The Company is currently in the process of renewing employment agreements with certain key executives.

 

Litigation

 

The Company is currently not involved, but may at times be involved in various claims and legal actions. Management is currently of the opinion that these claims and legal actions would have no merit, and any ultimate outcome will not have a material adverse impact on the consolidated financial position of the Company and/or the results of its operations.

 

Royalty Agreements

 

Pursuant to an agreement dated August 11, 2003, an existing investor agreed to make a $4 million equity investment in the Company. These amounts were received by the Company in 2003. In connection with this agreement, the Company granted the investor a future royalty of 3% on all gross revenues received by the Company from the sale of its CytoSorb® device. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 the Company has accrued royalty costs of $1,498.

 

License Agreements

 

In an agreement dated September 1, 2006, the Company entered into a license agreement which provides the Company the exclusive right to use its patented technology and proprietary know how relating to adsorbent polymers for a period of 18 years. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company has agreed to pay royalties of 2.5% to 5% on the sale of certain of its products if and when those products are sold commercially for a term not greater than 18 years commencing with the first sale of such product. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 per the terms of the license agreement the Company has accrued royalty costs of $1,281.

 

Warrant Agreement

 

As inducement to invest additional funds in the private placement of Series B Preferred Stock, additional consideration was granted to the participants of the Series B Preferred Stock offering in the event that litigation is commenced against CytoSorbents prior to June 30, 2018, claiming patent infringement on certain of the Company’s issued patents. In the event this litigation arises the Company may be required to issue warrants to purchase in the aggregate up to a maximum of ten million shares of Common Stock subject to certain adjustments. Through June 30, 2012 no such litigation has arisen and due to the deemed low probability of this potential outcome; the Company has not booked a contingent liability for this agreement.

6. NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic loss per share and diluted loss per share for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 have been computed by dividing the net loss for each respective period by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during that period. All outstanding warrants and options representing 63,394,230 and 70,718,917 incremental shares at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, as well as shares issuable upon conversion of Series A and Series B Preferred Stock representing 190,824,381 and 183,872,466 incremental shares at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, as well as potential shares issuable upon Note conversion into Common Stock representing approximately 14,530,000 and 19,152,500 incremental shares at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, have been excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share as they are anti-dilutive.

 

7. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events occurring after the balance sheet date through the date of the issuance of this report.

 

During July and August, the Company received approximately $450,000 as proceeds from the sale of 3,822,681 shares of Common Stock per the terms of the Purchase Agreement with LPC at an average price of $0.118 per share of Common.  Per the terms of the Purchase Agreement the Company also issued an additional 86,535 shares of Common Stock as additional Commitment Fee shares.

Overview and Plan of Operations

 

CytoSorbents is a development stage critical care focused company using blood purification to treat disease.   In March 2011, we received European Union (E.U.) regulatory approval under the CE Mark and Medical Devices Directive for our flagship product, CytoSorb®, as an extracorporeal cytokine filter to be used in clinical situations where cytokines are elevated.    CytoSorbents has started the process of commercializing its operations with the commencement of initial sales of its CytoSorb® device in the E.U. In mid-September we started to exhibit the CytoSorb® device at conferences in Germany as part of our product marketing under a controlled-market release in select geographic territories in Germany.   In late June 2012, we completed the controlled-market release and began the commercial launch of CytoSorb® in Germany with the hiring of Dr. Christian Steiner as Vice President of Sales and Marketing and three additional sales people, one of whom started immediately and the other two expected to start by August 2012. Because of this timing, the third quarter of 2012 is expected to be a transitional quarter in terms of revenues as the sales force increases its training and sales activities, particularly in Germany.

 

In 2011 as part of the CE Mark approval process we completed our European Sepsis clinical trial with enrollment of one hundred (100) patients with sepsis and respiratory failure with the participation of fourteen trial sites.  The purpose of the trial was to demonstrate safety and the broad, and statistically significant reduction of key cytokines such as IL-6 in these patients.  CytoSorb® treatment was well tolerated with no serious device related adverse events reported in over 300 human treatments. In the study CytoSorb® demonstrated its clinical effectiveness in reducing cytokine storm by approximately 30-50% in critically-ill patients. CytoSorb® treatment was linked with survival in patients at high risk of death, including patients with high cytokine levels and patients older than age 65, who generally make up two-thirds of patients hospitalized for sepsis.

 

Our CE Mark enables CytoSorb® to be sold in the European Union for clinical use.  Potential uses include many critical care conditions where cytokines are elevated such as sepsis, trauma, ARDS, severe burn injury and acute pancreatitis.  CytoSorbents has also achieved ISO 13485:2003 Full Quality Systems certification, an internationally recognized quality standard designed to ensure that medical device manufacturers have the necessary comprehensive management systems in place to safely design, develop, manufacture and distribute medical devices in the European Union.  We intend to continue to research and seek the necessary regulatory approvals to sell our other proposed products, as well as potential label extensions of our current CE Mark.

 

We are focusing our efforts on the commercialization of CytoSorb® and have now concluded a controlled-market release program in select territories in Germany that we initiated in late 2011. The purpose of this program was to prepare the Company for commercialization of CytoSorb in Germany in terms of manufacturing, logistics, infrastructure, marketing, contacts, and other key issues. Following the establishment of our European subsidiary, CytoSorbents Europe GmbH, we commenced a direct sales effort in Germany at the end of the second quarter of 2012 with the hiring of a four person direct sales force including a Vice President of Sales and Marketing, two of which started immediately, and two that began at the beginning of August. We are also evaluating potential distributor networks in other major countries where we are approved to market the device.

 

The initial major market focus for CytoSorb® is the adjunctive treatment of sepsis, a systemic inflammatory response to a serious infection. CytoSorb® has been designed to prevent or reduce the accumulation of high concentrations of cytokines in the bloodstream associated with sepsis and is intended for short-term use with standard of care therapy that includes antibiotics. We believe that current state of the art blood purification technology (such as dialysis) is incapable of effectively clearing the toxins intended to be absorbed by our CytoSorb® device.

 

In addition to the sepsis indication, we intend to continue to foster research in other critical care illnesses where CytoSorb® could be used, such as ARDS, trauma, severe burn injury and acute pancreatitis, or in other acute conditions that have demonstrated potential in preliminary studies to prevent or reduce the accumulation of cytokines in the bloodstream. These other conditions include the prevention of post-operative complications of cardiac surgery (cardiopulmonary bypass surgery) and damage to organs donated for transplant prior to organ harvest. We are also exploring the potential benefits our technology may have in removing drugs and other substances from blood and physiologic fluids.

 

The Company is currently manufacturing CytoSorb® under ISO 13485 Full Quality Systems certification for sale in the E.U. and for additional clinical studies.  Concurrent with its commercialization plans, the Company intends to conduct or support additional clinical studies in sepsis and other critical care diseases to generate additional clinical data to expand the scope of clinical experience for marketing purposes, to increase the number of treated patients, and to support potential future publications. Assuming availability of adequate and timely funding, and continued positive results from our clinical studies, the Company intends to continue commercializing its product in Europe.

 

The clinical protocol for our European Sepsis Trial was designed to allow us to gather information to support future U.S. studies. In the event we are able to successfully commercialize our products in the European market, we will review our plans for the United States to determine whether to conduct clinical trials in support of 510(k) or PMA registration. No assurance can be given that our CytoSorb® product will work as intended or that we will be able to obtain FDA approval to sell CytoSorb® in the United States. Even though we have obtained CE Mark approval, there is no guarantee or assurance that we will be successful in obtaining FDA approval in the United States or approval in any other country or jurisdiction.

 

Because of the limited studies we have conducted, we are subject to substantial risk that our technology will have little or no effect on the treatment of any indications that we have targeted.

 

At the end of the second quarter, Mr. David Lamadrid, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, gave notice of his resignation, effective July 13, 2012, due to personal reasons. Mr. Ronald Berger, a certified public accountant and the Company’s controller for the past eight years, was appointed by the Board of Directors as Interim Chief Financial Officer and has assumed Mr. Lamadrid’s duties as of July 16, 2012.

Results of Operations

 

CytoSorbents generated revenues of $49,935 and $-0- and $33,042 and $-0- for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. Revenues in the current six month period were part of an initial test market phase of CytoSorb with the company exploring direct sales to hospitals in Germany (without a dedicated sales force in place) and sales to distributor networks in other parts of Europe. The device was not available or approved for sale during the first six months of 2011.

 

Our research and development costs were, $1,309,031 and $1,613,984, for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively and $665,750 and $854,827 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. This represents a decrease of approximately 18.9% or $305,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same time period in 2011. This decrease is primarily due to net decreases in expenditures related to our completed sepsis study and clinical and research programs of approximately $320,000 and non-cash stock option expense of approximately $77,000, that were partially offset by increases in patent related expenses of approximately $76,000 and salaries of approximately $110,000, plus the receipt of approximately $83,000 in grant income from a US Army Phase I SBIR grant, which is presented in the financial statements as a reduction in research and development costs.

 

Our legal, financial and other consulting costs were, $234,827 and $166,772, for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. This represents an increase of approximately 40.8%, or approximately $68,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same time period in 2011. This is primarily comprised of an increase in legal fees of approximately $50,000 associated with patent review related costs, and approximately $15,000 in accounting fees which were associated with annual audit and S-1 registration related fees.

 

Our general and administrative costs were, $562,646 and $461,894, for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. This represents an increase of approximately 21.8%, or approximately $100,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same time period in 2011. This is primarily due to a decrease in non-cash stock option expense of approximately $95,000 which was primarily offset by increases in sales and marketing expenses of approximately $162,000, and insurance related costs of approximately $20,000.

 

Our net interest expenses were $397,177 and $313,116 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. This represents an increase of approximately 26.85% or $84,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same time period in 2011. The increase is primarily due to an increase of approximately $84,000 in non-cash related charges associated with the amortization of debt discount, which is presented in the net interest expenses category of our statement of operations.

 

We have experienced substantial operating losses since inception. As of June 30, 2012, we had a deficit accumulated during the development stage of $96,272,569, which included losses of $1,047,310 and $2,473,906 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012. In comparison, we had losses of $1,341,182 and $2,555,766 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011. Historically, our losses have resulted principally from costs incurred in the research and development of our polymer technology, and general and administrative expenses, which together were $958,930 and $1,871,677 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and $1,046,629 and $2,075,878 for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since inception, our operations have been financed through the private placement of our debt and equity securities. At December 31, 2011 we had cash of $1,186,653 and current liabilities of $1,527,949. As of June 30, 2012 we had cash on hand of $1,741,839 and current liabilities of $2,304,334.

 

We believe that we have sufficient cash to fund our operations into the fourth quarter of 2012, following which we will need additional funding before we can complete additional clinical studies and commercialize our products. The SEC approved a registration statement for common stock filed for the funding agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund LLC. Subject to minimum pricing restrictions per the terms of the funding agreement, Management believes that the Company will be able to receive ongoing funding per the terms of this purchase agreement (See Note 9 to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Commission on March 30, 2012). The agreement with Lincoln Park has the potential to significantly extend the time that we may be able to fund our operations, provided that our share price remains at or above $0.10. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 we received approximately $83,000 from the US Department of Defense for our progress under a $100,000 US Army Phase I SBIR grant that the Company was awarded in December 2011. The Company is exploring potential eligibility in several other government sponsored grant programs which could, if approved, represent a substantial source of non-dilutive funds for our research programs. We will also continue to seek other funding sources for the long term needs of the Company. There can be no assurance that financing will be available on acceptable terms or at all. If adequate funds are unavailable, we may have to suspend, delay or eliminate one or more of our research and development programs or product launches or marketing efforts or cease operations.

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has experienced negative cash flows from operations since inception and has a deficit accumulated during the development stage at June 30, 2012 of $96,272,569. The Company is not currently generating significant revenue and is dependent on the proceeds of present and future financings to fund its research, development and commercialization program. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company is continuing its fund-raising efforts.  Although the Company has historically been successful in raising additional capital through equity and debt financings, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital in the future or that it will be on favorable terms.  Furthermore, if the Company is successful in raising the additional financing, there can be no assurance that the amount will be sufficient to complete the Company's plans. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the outcome of this uncertainty.
