NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2021

(UNAUDITED)

 

1. Business Description

 

On January 31, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), we completed the sale of substantially all of our assets (the “Asset Sale”) for a total purchase price of $7,250,000 pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement entered into between us and Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“MCPP”). Prior to the Closing Date, we developed and manufactured advanced polymer materials which provide critical characteristics in the design and development of medical devices. Our biomaterials were marketed and sold to medical device manufacturers who used our advanced polymers in devices designed for treating a broad range of anatomical sites and disease states.

 

As a result of the Asset Sale, we ceased operating as a developer, manufacturer, marketer and seller of advanced polymers. Subsequent to the Closing Date, we became engaged in efforts to identify an operating company to acquire or merge with through an equity-based exchange transaction that would likely result in a change in control. As our efforts in engaging with an operating company subsequent to the Closing Date has not yet commenced, our activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including the need to raise additional capital if we are unable to identify an operating company desiring to acquire or merge with us.

 

We do not own or lease any property and maintain a corporate address at 95 Washington Street, Canton Massachusetts.

 

2. Liquidity and Going Concern

 

Our financial statements have been presented on the basis that we are a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we reported a net loss of approximately $47,000. Cash flows of approximately $79,000 were used in operations for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

 

Management is seeking to identify an operating company for the purpose of effecting a merger or business combination, or to acquire assets or shares of an entity actively engaged in a business that generates sustained revenues. We do not intend to restrict our consideration to any particular business or industry segment. Because we have limited resources, the scope and number of suitable candidates to merge with is relatively limited. Because we may participate in a business opportunity with a newly formed firm, a firm that is in the development stage, or a firm that is entering a new phase of growth, we may incur further risk due to the inability of the target’s management to have proven its abilities or effectiveness, or the lack of an established market for the target’s products or services, or the inability to reach profitability in the next few years.

 

Any business combination or transaction will likely result in a significant issuance of shares and substantial dilution to our present stockholders. It is expected that if a transaction is consummated, although no such transaction is assured, then the closing of such a transaction will result in a change in control and such transaction would be expected to be accounted for as a reverse merger, with the operating company being considered the legal acquiree and accounting acquirer, and we would be considered the legal acquirer and the accounting acquiree. As a result, at and subsequent to closing of any such transaction, the financial statements of the operating company would become our financial statements for all periods presented.

 

Although we have investigated certain opportunities to determine whether they would have the potential to add value to us for the benefit of our stockholders, we have not yet entered into any binding arrangements and there can be no assurance that we will ever identify an opportunity that could result in the consummation of merger or other business combination. As a result of the limited retained funds and uncertainty in consummating a possible merger or business combination, we expect our funds will not be sufficient to meet our needs for more than twelve months from the date of issuance of these financial statements. Accordingly, management believes there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

3. Interim Financial Statements and Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these unaudited financial statements do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments), which we consider necessary, for a fair presentation of those financial statements. The results of operations and cash flows for the three months ended June 30, 2021 may not necessarily be indicative of results that may be expected for any succeeding quarter or for the entire fiscal year. The information contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements included in our annual report on Form 10-K, as of and for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments, which are evaluated on an ongoing basis, and that affect the amounts reported in our unaudited financial statements and accompanying notes. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the amounts of expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from those estimates and judgments.

 

Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 3 to the audited financial statements as of March 31, 2021 which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on September 22, 2021.

 

4. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other standard setting bodies that may have an impact on our accounting and reporting. We believe that such recently issued accounting pronouncements and other authoritative guidance for which the effective date is in the future either will not have an impact on our accounting or reporting or that such impact will not be material to our financial position, results of operations and cash flows when implemented.

 

5. Related Party Transactions

 

Mr. Michael Adams, our chief executive officer, is a non-employee consultant and holder of approximately 11.5% of our outstanding common stock. During the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, Mr. Adams earned approximately $25,000 and $16,000 in consulting fees and was reimbursed approximately $6,000 and $5,000 for office expenses and car allowance. As of June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, there was approximately $2,000 and $17,000, respectively, payable to Mr. Adams in consideration of his consulting services and reimbursable expenses and allowances.

 

6. Transaction Fee

 

On May 20, 2021, we received a $22,000 cash deposit (the “Deposit”) in connection with a non-binding arrangement entered into with a private company having an interest in a potential business combination with us. On August 12, 2021, we were notified by the private company of their intent to terminate the arrangement. The arrangement provided that the Deposit was refundable, net of all reasonable legal, advisory and regulatory fees incurred by us. Our legal, advisory and regulatory fees exceeded the amount of the Deposit, accordingly, there was no refund due to the private company.

 

7. Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per common share is based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period plus additional weighted-average common equivalent shares outstanding during the period. Common equivalent shares result from the assumed exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants, the proceeds of which are then assumed to have been used to repurchase outstanding common stock using the treasury stock method. In addition, the numerator is adjusted for any changes in loss that would result from the assumed conversion of potential shares. There were 0 potentially dilutive shares for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020.

8. Income Taxes

 

We are required to file federal and state income tax returns in the United States. The preparation of these tax returns requires us to interpret the applicable tax laws and regulations in effect in such jurisdictions, which could affect the amount of tax paid by us. In consultation with our tax advisors, we base our tax returns on interpretations that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The tax returns, however, are subject to routine reviews by the various federal and state taxing authorities in the jurisdictions in which we file tax returns. As part of these reviews, a taxing authority may disagree with respect to the income tax positions taken by us (“uncertain tax positions”) and, therefore, may require us to pay additional taxes. As required under applicable accounting rules, we accrue an amount for our estimate of additional income tax liability, including interest and penalties, which we could incur as a result of the ultimate or effective resolution of the uncertain tax positions. We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributed to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences and carry-forwards are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts expected to be realized.

 

In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment.

 

We had 0 income tax credits for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. The effective tax rates during each of the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 was 27.0%. We have estimated our provision for income taxes in accordance with the Tax Act and guidance available as of the date of this filing but have kept the full valuation allowance.

 

9. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Preferred Stock

 

We have authorized 5,000,000 shares, $0.001 par value, Preferred Stock (the Preferred Stock”) of which 500,000 shares have been issued and redeemed, therefore are not considered outstanding. In addition, 500,000 shares of Preferred Stock have been designated as Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock (the “Junior Preferred Stock”) with the designations and the powers, preferences and rights, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions specified in the Certificate of Designation of the Junior Preferred Stock filed with the Delaware Department of State on January 28, 2008. Such number of shares may be increased or decreased by resolution of the Board of Directors; provided, that no decrease shall reduce the number of shares of Junior Preferred Stock to a number less than the number of shares then outstanding plus the number of shares reserved for issuance upon the exercise of outstanding options, rights or warrants or upon the conversion of any outstanding securities issued by us that is convertible into Junior Preferred Stock. As of June 30, 2021, there was 0 Junior Preferred Stock issued or outstanding.

 

Common Stock

 

We have 50,000,000 shares of our common stock authorized. As of June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, we have 28,339,063 shares of our common stock issued and 28,262,371 shares of our common stock outstanding.

Treasury Stock and Other Transactions

 

In September 2001, the Board of Directors adopted a share repurchase program authorizing the repurchase of up to 250,000 of our shares of common stock. In September 2004, the Board of Directors authorized the purchase of an additional 500,000 shares of common stock. Since September 2001, we have repurchased a total of 251,379 shares under the share repurchase program, leaving 498,621 shares remaining to purchase under the share repurchase program. NaN repurchases were made during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. The share repurchase program authorizes repurchases from time to time in open market transactions, through privately negotiated transactions, block transactions or otherwise, at times and prices deemed appropriate by management, and is not subject to an expiration date.

 

Stockholder Rights Plan

 

Our Board of Directors approved the adoption of a stockholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) under which all stockholders of record as of February 8, 2008 will receive rights to purchase shares of the Junior Preferred Stock (the “Rights”). The Rights will be distributed as a dividend. Initially, the Rights will attach to, and trade with, our common stock. Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of the Rights Plan, the Rights will become exercisable if (among other things) a person or group acquires 15% or more of our common stock. Upon such an event, and payment of the purchase price, each Right (except those held by the acquiring person or group) will entitle the holder to acquire shares of our common stock (or the economic equivalent thereof) having a value equal to twice the purchase price. Our Board of Directors may redeem the Rights prior to the time they are triggered. In the event of an unsolicited attempt to acquire us, the Rights Plan is intended to facilitate the full realization of our stockholder value and the fair and equal treatment of all of our stockholders. The Rights Plan does not prevent a takeover attempt.

 

10. Stock Options

 

On August 14, 2017, our board of directors approved and adopted the 2017 Non-Qualified Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”), which authorized the grant of non-qualified stock options exercisable into a maximum of 7,000,000 shares of our common stock. From August 17, 2017 through December 13, 2018, the board of directors approved the grant of stock options to certain directors, employees and a consultant which were immediately vested and exercisable into a total of 6,550,000 shares of our common stock. During December 2019, all stock options granted pursuant to the 2017 Plan were exercised through both cash payment and cashless exercise as provided in the 2017 Plan. There were 0 stock options outstanding pursuant to the 2017 Plan as of June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021. As of June 30, 2021 and March 31, 2021, there were 450,000 shares available to grant pursuant to the 2017 Plan and 0 options outstanding or exercisable.

 

11. Legal Proceedings

 

We are not the subject of any pending legal proceedings; and to the knowledge of management, no proceedings are presently contemplated against us by any federal, state or local governmental agency. Further, to the knowledge of management, no director or executive officer is party to any action in which any has an interest adverse to us.

 

12. Subsequent Events

 

We evaluated all events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date through the date when we filed these financial statements and we determined that we did not have any other material recognizable subsequent events.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Report on Form 10-Q contains certain statements that are “forward-looking” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the “Litigation Reform Act”). These forward looking statements and other information are based on our beliefs as well as assumptions made by us using information currently available.

 

The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “will,” “should” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described herein as anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended or using other similar expressions.

 

In accordance with the provisions of the Litigation Reform Act, we are making investors aware that such forward-looking statements, because they relate to future events, are by their very nature subject to many important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in this Report on Form 10-Q. For example, given the cessation of our operations as a developer, manufacturer, marketer and seller of advanced polymers on January 31, 2020, resulting from the sale of substantially all of our assets to an independent third party, we became engaged in efforts to identify either an (i) operating company to acquire or merge with through an equity-based exchange transaction or (ii) investor interested in purchasing a majority interest in our common stock, whereby either transaction would likely result in a change in control. If we are unable to effect a transaction with an operating company or investor, we may be required to cease all operations, including liquidation through bankruptcy proceedings. Accordingly, the reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained herein, which speak only as of the date hereof. You are encouraged to review our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to read and carefully consider the additional information included in our Annual Report on Form 10K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, including but not limited to the Risk Factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A. We assume no responsibility to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise except as required by law.

 

Business

 

On January 31, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), we completed the sale of substantially all of our assets (the “Asset Sale”) for a total purchase price of $7,250,000 pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement entered into between us and Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“MCPP”). Prior to the Closing Date, we developed and manufactured advanced polymer materials which provide critical characteristics in the design and development of medical devices. Our biomaterials were marketed and sold to medical device manufacturers who used our advanced polymers in devices designed for treating a broad range of anatomical sites and disease states.

 

As a result of the Asset Sale, we ceased operating as a developer, manufacturer, marketer and seller of advanced polymers. Subsequent to the Closing Date, we became engaged in efforts to identify an operating company to acquire or merge with through an equity-based exchange transaction that would likely result in a change in control. As our efforts in engaging with an operating company subsequent to the Closing Date has not yet commenced, our activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including the need to raise additional capital if we are unable to identify an operating company desiring to acquire or merge with us.

 

Management is seeking to identify an operating company and engage in a merger or business combination of some kind, or acquire assets or shares of an entity actively engaged in a business that generates sustained revenues. Although we have investigated certain opportunities to determine whether they would have the potential to add value to us for the benefit of our stockholders, we have not yet entered into any binding arrangements.

 

We do not intend to restrict our consideration to any particular business or industry segment. Because we have limited resources, the scope and number of suitable candidates to merge with is relatively limited. Because we may participate in a business opportunity with a newly formed firm, a firm that is in the development stage, or a firm that is entering a new phase of growth, we may incur further risk due to the inability of the target’s management to have proven its abilities or effectiveness, or the lack of an established market for the target’s products or services, or the inability to reach profitability in the next few years.

 

11

 

 

Any business combination or transaction will likely result in a significant issuance of shares and substantial dilution to our present stockholders. As it is expected that the closing of such a transaction will result in a change in control, such transaction is expected to be accounted for as a reverse merger, with the operating company being considered the legal acquiree and accounting acquirer, and we would be considered the legal acquirer and the accounting acquiree. As a result, at and subsequent to closing of any such transaction, the financial statements of the operating company would become our financial statements for all periods presented.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our critical accounting policies are summarized in Note 3 to our financial statements included in Item 8 of our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021. However, certain of our accounting policies require the application of significant judgment by our management, and such judgments are reflected in the amounts reported in our financial statements. In applying these policies, our management uses its judgment to determine the appropriate assumptions to be used in the determination of estimates. Those estimates are based on our historical experience, terms of existing contracts, our observance of market trends, information provided by our strategic partners and information available from other outside sources, as appropriate. Actual results may differ significantly from the estimates contained in our unaudited financial statements. There have been no changes to our critical accounting policies during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended June 30, 2021 vs. June 30, 2020

 

Operating Expenses

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, our operating expenses were approximately $69,000 as compared with $103,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of approximately $34,000, or 33.0%. Our operating expenses are composed of those costs necessary to operate a public company, which are primarily composed of management consultant fees, accounting fees, professional fees, and regulatory fees. The decrease in these operating costs is primarily a result of decreased accounting fees and elimination of director and officer insurance expenses.

 

Other Income

 

On May 20, 2021, we received a $22,000 cash deposit (the “Deposit”) in connection with a non-binding arrangement entered into with a private company having an interest in a potential business combination with us. On August 12, 2021, we were notified by the private company of their intent to terminate the arrangement. The arrangement provided that the Deposit was refundable, net of all reasonable legal, advisory and regulatory fees incurred by us. Our legal, advisory and regulatory fees exceeded the amount of the Deposit, accordingly, there was no refund due to the private company

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of June 30, 2021, we had cash of approximately $49,000 as compared to a cash balance of approximately $128,000 as of March 31, 2021.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we had net cash of approximately $79,000 used in operating activities. Our cash flows used in operating activities is primarily a result of our net loss of approximately $47,000 and decrease in accounts payable and accrued expense of approximately $32,000. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, we had net cash of approximately $51,000 used in operating activities. Our cash flows used in operating activities is primarily a result of our net loss of approximately $103,000 offset by (i) approximately $44,000 in increased collections of accounts receivable and (ii) approximately $10,000 of increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020 we had net cash of approximately $5,087,000 used in financing activities as a result of the cash distribution of approximately $5,087,000 on April 23, 2020 to our stockholders of record as of April 16, 2020.

 

On January 31, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), we completed the sale of substantially all of our assets (the “Asset Sale”) for a total gross purchase price of $7,250,000 pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement entered into between us and Mitsubishi Chemical Performance Polymers, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“MCPP”). Prior to the Closing Date, we developed and manufactured advanced polymer materials which provide critical characteristics in the design and development of medical devices. As a result of the Asset Sale, we ceased operating as a developer, manufacturer, marketer and seller of advanced polymers. Subsequent to the Closing Date, we became engaged in efforts to identify potential operating companies interested in merging into us through an equity-based exchange transaction that would likely result in a change in control. As our efforts in engaging with an operating company subsequent to the Closing Date has not resulted in the execution of a definitive agreement to consummate such a transaction, our activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including the need to raise additional capital if we are unable to identify an operating company desiring to acquire or merge with us.

Our financial statements have been presented on the basis that we are a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. Our financial statements have been presented on the basis that we are a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we reported a net loss of approximately $47,000. Cash flows of approximately $79,000 were used in operations for the three months ended June 30, 2021. As a result, we expect our funds will not be sufficient to meet our needs for more than twelve months from the date of issuance of these financial statements. Accordingly, management believes there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Management is seeking to identify an operating company for the purpose of effecting a merger or business combination, or to acquire assets or shares of an entity actively engaged in a business that generates sustained revenues. Although we have investigated certain opportunities to determine whether they would have the potential to add value to us for the benefit of our stockholders, we have not yet entered into any binding arrangements.

 

We do not intend to restrict our consideration to any particular business or industry segment. Because we have limited resources, the scope and number of suitable candidates to merge with is relatively limited. Because we may participate in a business opportunity with a newly formed firm, a firm that is in the development stage, or a firm that is entering a new phase of growth, we may incur further risk due to the inability of the target’s management to have proven its abilities or effectiveness, or the lack of an established market for the target’s products or services, or the inability to reach profitability in the next few years.

 

Any business combination or transaction will likely result in a significant issuance of shares and substantial dilution to our present stockholders. As it is expected that the closing of such a transaction will result in a change in control, such transaction is expected to be accounted for as a reverse merger, with the operating company being considered the legal acquiree and accounting acquirer, and we would be considered the legal acquirer and the accounting acquiree. As a result, at and subsequent to closing of any such transaction, the financial statements of the operating company would become our financial statements for all periods presented.

 

Commitments

 

We do not have any long-term commitments as of June 30, 2021.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30, 2021, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future material effect on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our chief executive officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2021. The term “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”), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions to be made regarding required disclosure. It should be noted that any system of controls and procedures, however well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the system are met and that management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on this evaluation, our chief executive officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2021 were not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to limited resources in the finance and accounting functions. We intend to take appropriate and reasonable steps to make improvements to remediate these deficiencies.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal period to which this report relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
