Liquidity and Going Concern



The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred recurring losses since inception and as of March 31, 2016, had an accumulated deficit of $16,170,055. The Company anticipates operating losses to continue for the foreseeable future due to, among other things, costs related to research funding, development of its product candidates and its preclinical and clinical programs, strategic alliances and the development of its administrative organization. The Company expects the current cash on hand of $9,687,805 together with the milestone payments from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics, Inc. (“CFFT”) (See Note 13), which the Company expects to receive during 2016 if the Company achieves certain milestones, to be sufficient to meet its operating and capital requirements into the fourth quarter of 2016 based on planned expenditures. Should the Company be unable to raise sufficient additional capital, the Company may undertake cost-cutting measures including delaying or discontinuing certain clinical activities.  The Company will need to raise significant additional capital to fund the clinical trials for Resunab. The Company may seek to sell common or preferred equity or convertible debt securities, enter into a credit facility or another form of third-party funding, or seek other debt financing. The sale of equity and convertible debt securities may result in dilution to the Company’s stockholders and certain of those securities may have rights senior to those of the Company’s common shares. If the Company raises additional funds through the issuance of preferred stock, convertible debt securities or other debt financing, these securities or other debt could contain covenants that would restrict the Company’s operations. Any other third-party funding arrangement could require the Company to relinquish valuable rights.

The source, timing and availability of any future financing will depend principally upon market conditions, and, more specifically, on the progress of the Company’s clinical development programs. Funding may not be available when needed, at all, or on terms acceptable to the Company. Lack of necessary funds may require the Company, among other things, to delay, scale back or eliminate some or all of the Company’s planned clinical trials.  These factors among others create a substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There have been no adjustments made to these consolidated financial statements as a result of these uncertainties.
