Management Discussion
  • Net Change in Cash. Cash increased by $1.8 million and $0.5 million during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
  • Cash Flows Used in Operating Activities. The cash flows used in operating activities of $7.4 million during the year ended December 31, 2020 included a net loss of $10.6 million, an increase in accounts receivable of $1.6 million, an increase in inventories and other assets of $0.2 million and a decrease in accounts payable and operating lease liabilities of $0.5 million. These were partially offset by an increase in accrued expenses and other liabilities of $0.7 million and non-cash adjustments of $4.8 million. The non-cash adjustments included $1.3 million for the change in provision for losses on doubtful accounts. We routinely provide a reserve for doubtful accounts as a result of having limited in-network payer contracts. Non-cash adjustments also included $1.2 million for loss on extinguishment of convertible notes, which resulted from a March 2020 amendment to certain Bridge Notes whereby, among other things, the floor price at which conversions may occur was amended from $2.25 to $0.40. See Note 6 – Convertible Notes for further discussion. The other non-cash adjustments to net loss of approximately $2.3 million include, among other things, depreciation and amortization, warrant revaluations and stock based compensation. The cash flows used in operating activities in the year ended December 31, 2019 included the net loss of $13.2 million, an increase in accounts receivable of $0.8 million, a decrease in accounts payable of $1.9 million and a decrease in operating lease liabilities of $0.2 million. These were partially offset by a decrease in other assets of $0.4 million and non-cash adjustments of $6.6 million.
  • Cash Flows Used In Investing Activities. Cash flows used in investing activities were $0.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, resulting from purchases of property and equipment partially offset by proceeds from sales of fixed assets.
