DISCLOSURE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), about Ocugen and its subsidiaries. These forward-looking statements are intended to be covered by the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are not statements of historical fact, and can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “believes”, “expects”, “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “projects”, “plans”, “goal”, “targets”, “potential”, “estimates”, “pro forma”, “seeks”, “intends” or “anticipates” or the negative thereof or comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements include discussions of strategy, financial projections, guidance and estimates (including their underlying assumptions), statements regarding plans, objectives, expectations or consequences of various transactions, and statements about the future performance, operations, products and services of Ocugen and its subsidiaries. We caution our stockholders and other readers not to place undue reliance on such statements.
You should read this report and the documents filed by the Company with the SEC completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we currently expect. Our business and operations are and will be subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors. Consequently, actual results and experience may materially differ from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Such risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results and experience to differ from those projected include, but are not limited to:
the risk that Ocugen continues to incur significant losses from operations and continues to incur net losses;
the risk that Ocugen may encounter unforeseen expenses, difficulties, complications, delays and other known and unknown factors;
the extent to which health epidemics and other outbreaks of communicable diseases, including the recent outbreak of a novel strain of the coronavirus which causes a serious respiratory condition known as COVID-19 could disrupt Ocugen's business and operations;
the uncertainties associated with the clinical development and regulatory approval of product candidates, including potential delays in the commencement, enrollment and completion of clinical trials;
risks related to the inability of the Company to obtain sufficient additional capital to continue to advance these product candidates and its preclinical programs;
uncertainties in obtaining successful clinical results for product candidates and unexpected costs that may result therefrom;
risks related to the failure to realize any value from product candidates and preclinical programs being developed and anticipated to be developed in light of inherent risks and difficulties involved in successfully bringing product candidates to market and the risk that products will not achieve broad market acceptance; and
the other risk factors discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 27, 2020 (the "2019 Annual Report"), in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 8, 2020, and in any other documents Ocugen files with the SEC.
You should assume that the information appearing in this report is accurate as of its date only. Because the risk factors referred to above could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict which factors will arise. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf made after the date of this report are expressly qualified in their entirety by the risk factors and cautionary statements contained in this report. Unless legally required, we do not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

OCUGEN, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.    Nature of Business
Ocugen, Inc. (formerly known as Histogenics Corporation), together with its wholly owned subsidiaries (“Ocugen” or the “Company”), is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing transformative therapies to cure blindness diseases. The Company is located in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and manages its business as 1 operating segment.
Ocugen is developing a modifier gene therapy platform to generate therapies designed to fulfill unmet medical needs in the area of retinal diseases, including inherited retinal diseases ("IRDs") and dry age-related macular degeneration ("AMD"). Ocugen's modifier gene therapy platform is based on nuclear hormone receptors ("NHRs") which have the potential to restore homeostasis, the basic biological processes in the retina. Unlike single-gene replacement therapies, which only target one genetic mutation, Ocugen believes that its gene therapy platform, through its use of NHRs, represents a novel approach in that it may address multiple retinal diseases with one product.
Ocugen's first gene therapy candidate, OCU400, is being developed to treat retinitis pigmentosa ("RP"), a group of rare genetic disorders that involves a breakdown and loss of cells in the retina and can lead to visual impairment and blindness. Ocugen has received 4 Orphan Drug Designations ("ODDs") from the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for the treatment of certain disease genotypes: nuclear receptor subfamily 2 group E member 3 ("NR2E3"), centrosomal protein 290 ("CEP290"), rhodopsin ("RHO"), and phosphodiesterase 6B ("PDE6B") mutation-associated RP. Ocugen is planning to initiate 2 Phase 1/2a clinical trials for OCU400 in the second half of 2021. Ocugen's second gene therapy candidate, OCU410, is being developed to utilize the nuclear receptor genes RAR-related orphan receptor A ("RORA") for the treatment of dry AMD. This candidate is currently in preclinical development. Ocugen is planning to initiate a Phase 1/2a clinical trial for OCU410 in 2022.
Ocugen is also conducting preclinical development for its biologic product candidate, OCU200. OCU200 is a novel fusion protein designed to treat diabetic macular edema ("DME"), diabetic retinopathy ("DR") and wet AMD. Ocugen plans to expand the therapeutic applications of OCU200 beyond DME, DR and wet AMD to potentially include macular edema following retinal vein occlusion and myopic choroidal neovascularization. Ocugen expects to initiate Investigational New Drug ("IND") enabling preclinical studies for OCU200 in 2021 and a Phase 1/2a clinical trial for OCU200 in the first half of 2022.
Ocugen was developing OCU300, a small molecule therapeutic for the treatment of symptoms associated with ocular graft versus-host disease ("oGVHD"). On June 1, 2020, Ocugen announced that it had discontinued the Phase 3 trial of OCU300 based on results of a pre-planned interim sample size analysis conducted by an independent Data Monitoring Committee, which indicated the trial was unlikely to meet its co-primary endpoints upon completion. The trial was not stopped based on safety concerns. Ocugen is no longer pursuing the development of this product candidate.
Merger with Histogenics
On September 27, 2019, the Company completed its reverse merger with Ocugen OpCo, Inc. (“OpCo”) in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, dated as of April 5, 2019, by and among Histogenics Corporation ("Histogenics"), OpCo and Restore Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Histogenics (“Merger Sub”), as amended (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into OpCo, with OpCo surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Histogenics (the “Merger”). Immediately after completion of the Merger, Histogenics changed its name to Ocugen, Inc. and the business conducted by Ocugen, Inc. became the business conducted by OpCo. OpCo is deemed to be the accounting acquirer. Accordingly, the historical financial statements of OpCo became the Company’s historical financial statements, including the comparative prior periods. See Note 3 for additional information.
Reverse Stock Split
In connection with, and immediately prior to the completion of the Merger, Histogenics effected a reverse stock split of the common stock, at a ratio of 1-for-60 (the ‘‘Reverse Stock Split’’). Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the Company issued common stock to OpCo’s stockholders at an exchange rate of 0.4794 shares of common stock, after taking into account the Reverse Stock Split, for each share of OpCo’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Merger.

The capital structure, including the number of shares of common stock issued appearing in the condensed consolidated balance sheets for the periods presented, reflects that of Ocugen. All references in the condensed consolidated financial statements to the number of shares and per-share amounts of common stock have been retroactively restated to reflect the exchange rate.
Going Concern
The Company has incurred recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations since inception and has funded its operating losses through the sale of common stock, warrants to purchase common stock, the issuance of convertible notes, debt, and grant proceeds. The Company incurred net losses of approximately $18.0 million and $32.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $69.5 million and cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaling $19.3 million.
The Company has a limited operating history and its prospects are subject to risks, expenses and uncertainties frequently encountered by companies in its industry. The Company intends to continue its research and development efforts for its product candidates, which will require significant funding. If the Company is unable to obtain additional financing in the future or research and development efforts require higher than anticipated capital, there may be a negative impact on the financial viability of the Company. The Company plans to increase working capital by raising additional capital through public and private placements of equity and/or debt, payments from potential strategic research and development arrangements, sale of assets, and licensing and/or collaboration arrangements with pharmaceutical companies or other institutions. Such financing may not be available at all, or on terms that are favorable to the Company. While management of the Company believes that it has a plan to fund ongoing operations, its plan may not be successfully implemented. Failure to generate sufficient cash flows from operations, raise additional capital through one or more financings, or appropriately manage certain discretionary spending could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s ability to achieve its intended business objectives.
As a result of these factors, together with the anticipated increase in spending that will be necessary to continue to develop the Company’s product candidates, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that these condensed consolidated financial statements are issued. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not contain any adjustments that might result from the resolution of any of the above uncertainties.
2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and under the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim reporting. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, that are necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and cash flows. The condensed consolidated results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results that may occur for the full fiscal year. Certain information and footnote disclosures of the Company normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted under the SEC’s rules and regulations. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and accompanying notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2019, included in the Company's 2019 Annual Report.
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Ocugen, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with current period presentation.
Use of Estimates
In preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Due to inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, actual results reported in future periods may be affected by changes in these estimates. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions primarily include those used in the accounting for clinical trial accruals, warrant transactions, asset held for sale, and the valuation of debt and equity instruments, including embedded derivatives and stock-based compensation.

Collaboration Arrangements
The Company assesses whether collaboration agreements are subject to the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 808, Collaborative Arrangements (“ASC 808”), based on whether they involve joint operating activities and whether both parties have active participation in the arrangement and are exposed to significant risks and rewards. To the extent that the arrangement falls within the scope of ASC 808, the Company assesses whether the payments between the Company and the collaboration partner are subject to other accounting literature. If payments from the collaboration partner represent consideration from a customer, the Company accounts for those payments within the scope of ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). However, if the Company concludes that its collaboration partner is not a customer, the Company will determine if analogy to other authoritative literature is appropriate.
In April 2020, the Company entered into a collaboration agreement subject to ASC 808. Under this arrangement, the Company records cost reimbursements received as a reduction of research and development expense in the period incurred and royalty payments received as collaboration revenue in the period in which the underlying sale occurs. See Note 5 for additional information.
Exit and Disposal Activities
The Company records liabilities for one-time termination benefits in accordance with ASC Topic 420, Exit and Disposal Cost Obligations ("ASC 420"). In accordance with ASC 420, an arrangement for one-time termination benefits exists at the date the plan of the termination meets the following criteria: (i) management commits to a plan of termination, (ii) the plan identifies the impacted employees and expected completion date, (iii) the plan identifies the terms of the benefits arrangement, (iv) it is unlikely significant changes to the plan will be made or the plan will be withdrawn and (v) the plan has been communicated to employees. Costs for one-time termination benefits in which the employee is required to render service until termination in order to receive the benefits, are recognized ratably over the future service period.
The Company records liabilities for employee termination benefits covered by ongoing benefit arrangements in accordance with ASC Topic 712, CompensationNonretirement Postemployment Benefits ("ASC 712"). In accordance with ASC 712, costs for termination benefits under ongoing benefits arrangements are recognized when management has committed to a plan of termination and the costs are probable and estimable.
Severance-related charges, once incurred, are recognized as either research and development expense or general and administrative expense within the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss depending on the job function of the employee.
Asset Held for Sale
An asset is considered to be held for sale when all of the following criteria are met: (i) management commits to a plan to sell the asset; (ii) it is unlikely that the disposal plan will be significantly modified or discontinued; (iii) the asset is available for immediate sale in its present condition; (iv) actions required to complete the sale of the asset have been initiated; (v) sale of the asset is probable and the completed sale is expected to occur within one year; and (vi) the asset is actively being marketed for sale at a price that is reasonable given its current market value.
A long-lived asset classified as held for sale is measured at the lower of its carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. If the long-lived asset is newly acquired, the carrying amount of the long-lived asset is established based on its fair value less cost to sell at the acquisition date. A long-lived asset is not depreciated or amortized while it is classified as held for sale, and an impairment loss would be recognized to the extent the carrying amount exceeds the asset's fair value less cost to sell.
As of December 31, 2019, the Company had an intangible asset held for sale, which it held prior to the Merger. The intangible asset qualified and was recorded as held for sale as of the date of the reverse asset acquisition and was carried at its original fair value less cost to sell of $7.0 million. The Company concluded during the three months ended September 30, 2020, that a sale of the intangible asset held for sale was no longer probable to be completed within one year from the date the intangible asset was initially recorded as held for sale. As such, the carrying value of the intangible asset was reduced to 0 with the corresponding charge of $7.0 million recognized as in-process research and development expense during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 as the in-process research and development does not have an alternative future use.
Although the Company has concluded that a sale of the intangible asset is no longer probable to be completed within one year from the date the intangible asset was initially recorded as held for sale, the Company is party to an Asset Purchase Agreement
11

(as defined within Note 3) related to the intangible asset as of September 30, 2020, and continues to market the asset for sale. In the event of a sale of the intangible asset under the Asset Purchase Agreement or to another party, the Company will account for the sale in the period in which the sale occurs.
Fair Value Measurements
The company follows the provisions of the ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements (“ASC 820”), which defines fair value as used in numerous accounting pronouncements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure of fair measurements.
The carrying value of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximates their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments.
ASC 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1 — quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 — quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable
Level 3 — inputs that are unobservable (for example cash flow modeling inputs based on assumptions)

The Company had derivative instruments that were fair valued on a recurring basis using Level 3 inputs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. There were no derivative instruments fair valued on a recurring basis using Level 3 inputs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, the Company estimates the fair value of the note with EB5 Life Sciences, L.P. was $1.0 million using Level 2 inputs. As of September 30, 2020, the Company believes the fair values using Level 2 inputs of both the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes (as defined in Note 9) and the loan received under the PPP of the CARES Act (as defined in Note 9) approximate their carrying values. See Note 9 for additional information.
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
The Company considers all highly liquid investments that have maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents include bank demand deposits, marketable securities with maturities of three months or less at purchase, and money market funds that invest primarily in certificates of deposit, commercial paper and United States government and United States government agency obligations. The Company’s restricted cash balance consists of cash held to collateralize a corporate credit card account.
The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash in the condensed consolidated balance sheets to the total amount shown in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows:
As of September 30,
20202019
Cash and cash equivalents$19,105,830 $15,301,082 
Restricted cash151,196 150,910 
Total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash$19,257,026 $15,451,992 
Leases
The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. This determination generally depends on whether the arrangement conveys to the Company the right to control the use of an explicitly or implicitly identified fixed asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. Control of an underlying asset is conveyed to the Company if the Company obtains the rights to direct the use of and to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from using the underlying asset. The Company has lease agreements which include lease and non-lease components, which the Company has elected to account for as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets. Lease expense for variable lease components are recognized when the obligation is probable.
12

Operating leases are included in other assets and lease obligations on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Operating lease payments are recognized as lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company primarily leases real estate, and leases for real estate are classified as operating leases. ASC Topic 842, Leases ("ASC 842") requires a lessee to discount its unpaid lease payments using the interest rate implicit in the lease or, if that rate cannot be readily determined, its incremental borrowing rate. As an implicit interest rate is not readily determinable in the Company’s leases, the incremental borrowing rate is used based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.
The lease term for all of the Company’s leases includes the non-cancellable period of the lease plus any additional periods covered by either a Company option to extend (or not to terminate) the lease that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise, or an option to extend (or not to terminate) the lease controlled by the lessor. Options for lease renewals have been excluded from the lease term (and lease liability) for the majority of the Company’s leases as the reasonably certain threshold is not met.
Lease payments included in the measurement of the lease liability are comprised of fixed payments, variable payments that depend on index or rate, and amounts probable to be payable under the exercise of the Company option to purchase the underlying asset if reasonably certain.
Variable lease payments not dependent on a rate or index associated with the Company’s leases are recognized when the event, activity, or circumstance in the lease agreement on which those payments are assessed as probable. Variable lease payments include the Company's proportionate share of utilities and other operating expenses and are presented as operating expenses in the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss in the same line item as expense arising from fixed lease payments.
Stock-based compensation
The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation awards in accordance with ASC Topic 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”). ASC 718 requires all stock-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options and restricted stock units and modifications to existing agreements, to be recognized in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss based on their fair values. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to determine the fair value of options granted. The Company recognizes forfeitures as they occur.
The Company’s stock-based awards are subject to service-based vesting conditions. Compensation expense related to awards to employees and directors with service-based vesting conditions is recognized on a straight-line basis based on the grant date fair value over the associated service period of the award, which is generally the vesting term. Stock-based awards generally vest over a one to three year requisite service period and have a contractual term of 10 years.
Estimating the fair value of options requires the input of subjective assumptions, including expected life of the option, stock price volatility, the risk-free interest rate and expected dividends. The assumptions used in the Company’s Black-Scholes option-pricing model represent management’s best estimates and involve a number of variables, uncertainties and assumptions and the application of management’s judgment, as they are inherently subjective. If any assumptions change, the Company’s stock-based compensation expense could be materially different in the future.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In August 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. This standard modifies certain disclosure requirements on fair value measurements and was effective for the Company on January 1, 2020. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's disclosures.
In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-18, Collaborative Arrangements (Topic 808): Clarifying the Interaction between Topic 808 and Topic 606. This standard clarifies that certain transactions between collaborative arrangement participants should be accounted for as revenue under ASC 606 when the collaborative arrangement participant is a customer in the context of a unit of account. In those situations, ASC 606 guidance should be applied, including recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure requirements. The standard adds unit-of-account guidance to ASC 808 to align with the guidance in ASC 606 when an entity is assessing whether the collaborative arrangement or a part of the collaborative arrangement is within the scope of ASC 606. The standard also precludes a company from presenting transactions with collaborative arrangement participants that are not directly related to sales to third parties with revenue from contracts with customers recognized under ASC 606 if the collaborative arrangement participant is not a customer. This standard was effective for the Company on
13

January 1, 2020. Consistent with the guidance in this standard, the Company assesses whether collaboration arrangements are within the scope of ASC 606. For collaboration arrangements that are not within the scope of ASC 606, applicable transactions with collaborative arrangement participants are presented as collaboration revenue rather than revenue from contracts with customers. See above and Note 5 for additional information.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The FASB subsequently issued amendments to ASU 2016-13, which have the same effective date and transition date of January 1, 2023. These standards require that credit losses be reported using an expected losses model rather than the incurred losses model that is currently used, and establishes additional disclosures related to credit risks. For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, these standards now require allowances to be recorded instead of reducing the amortized cost of the investment. These standards limit the amount of credit losses to be recognized for available-for-sale debt securities to the amount by which carrying value exceeds fair value and requires the reversal of previously recognized credit losses if fair value increases. The Company does not currently expect the adoption of these standards to have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. This standard will have an effective date and transition date of January 1, 2021. This standard removes certain exceptions for recognizing deferred taxes for investments, performing intraperiod allocations and calculating income taxes in interim periods. This standard also adds guidance to reduce complexity in certain areas, including recognizing franchise tax, recognizing deferred taxes for tax goodwill, allocating taxes to the members of a consolidated group and recognizing the effect of enacted changes in tax laws or rates during an interim period. The Company does not currently expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). This standard will have an effective and transition date of January 1, 2024. Early adoption is permitted beginning January 1, 2021. This standard simplifies an issuer's accounting for convertible instruments by eliminating two of the three models in ASC 470-20 that require separate accounting for embedded conversion features as well as simplifies the settlement assessment that entities are required to perform to determine whether a contract qualifies for equity classification. This standard also requires entities to use the if-converted method for all convertible instruments in the diluted earnings per share calculation and include the effect of potential share settlement (if the effect is more dilutive) for instruments that may be settled in cash or shares, except for certain liability-classified share-based payment awards. The standard requires new disclosures about events that occur during the reporting period and cause conversion contingencies to be met and about the fair value of a public business entity's convertible debt at the instrument level, among other things. The Company does not currently expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
3.    Merger and Financing
Pre-Merger Financing
In June 2019, OpCo and Histogenics entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (as amended, the "Financing SPA") with certain accredited investors (the "Investors"). Pursuant to the Financing SPA, among other things, (i) immediately prior to the Merger, OpCo issued 2.2 million shares of common stock to the Investors, (ii) on October 4, 2019, the Company issued 2.2 million shares of the Company's common stock to the Investors and (iii) on October 4, 2019, the Company issued 3 series of warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Series A Warrants,” the “Series B Warrants” and the “Series C Warrants” and collectively, the “Pre-Merger Financing Warrants”) in exchange for an aggregate purchase price of $25.0 million (the "Pre-Merger Financing"). See Note 12 for additional information.
Merger with Histogenics
On September 27, 2019, the Company completed the Merger in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. The Merger was structured as a stock-for-stock transaction whereby all of OpCo’s outstanding shares of common stock and securities convertible into or exercisable for OpCo’s common stock were converted into the right to receive Histogenics’ common stock and securities convertible into or exercisable for Histogenics’ common stock.
In accordance with ASC Topic 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”), the Company concluded that, while Histogenics was the legal acquirer, OpCo was the accounting acquirer due to the fact that (i) OpCo’s shareholders had the majority of the voting
14

rights in Ocugen, (ii) OpCo held all of the board seats of the combined company and (iii) OpCo management held all key positions in the management of the combined company. The Company further concluded that Histogenics did not meet the definition of a business under ASC 805 due to the fact that substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets disposed of is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or a group of similar identifiable assets. Therefore, the Merger was accounted for as a reverse asset acquisition.
In connection with the Merger, on May 8, 2019, Histogenics entered into an asset purchase agreement (the "Asset Purchase Agreement") with Medavate Corp., pursuant to which Histogenics agreed to sell substantially all of its assets relating to its NeoCart® program for $6.5 million. The parties subsequently amended the Asset Purchase Agreement to increase the purchase price to $7.0 million with the purchase price increasing 10% per month (or any portion thereof) starting October 31, 2019 if the closing date of the Asset Purchase Agreement did not occur prior to October 31, 2019. The Company may terminate the Asset Purchase Agreement at any time without recourse. The Asset Purchase Agreement closing date did not occur as of September 30, 2020 and the Company has not terminated the Asset Purchase Agreement as of September 30, 2020.
The NeoCart® asset was held for sale as of December 31, 2019. The NeoCart® asset qualified as held for sale as of the date of the reverse asset acquisition and was carried at its original fair value less cost to sell valued at the acquisition date based on a quoted price of $7.0 million, which was an observable Level 2 fair value input. The NeoCart® asset did not qualify as held for sale as of September 30, 2020. See Note 2 for additional information.

5.    Collaboration Agreements
In April 2020, the Company entered into a collaboration agreement (the “Advaite Agreement”) with Advaite, Inc. (“Advaite”) with respect to the development of Advaite’s RapCov COVID-19 Testing Kit (the “COVID-19 Test”). Advaite was co-founded and is being managed by Mr. Karthik Musunuri, the son of the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Board and co-founder, Dr. Shankar Musunuri. Pursuant to the Advaite Agreement, the Company will provide certain production, research and development, technical, regulatory and quality support services to Advaite in connection with the development and
15

commercialization of the COVID-19 Test (the “Ocugen Services”). Advaite will research, develop, and seek to obtain regulatory approval of the COVID-19 Test, and where regulatory approval is obtained, commercialize the COVID-19 Test.
Advaite will solely own all data and materials, including the COVID-19 Test, generated by the Company and its representatives solely in the course of the performance of the Ocugen Services. Advaite is responsible for all preparation and submission of regulatory materials for the COVID-19 Test to regulatory authorities, and Advaite will hold all regulatory approvals of the COVID-19 Test in its name and own all related submissions.
The Company is entitled to receive cost reimbursements from Advaite, beginning as of April 1, 2020, for (a) costs incurred by the Company related to its personnel who are subject matter experts involved in providing the Ocugen Services ("SME Costs") and (b) Advaite's pro-rata share of all costs (other than SME Costs) incurred by the Company in providing the Ocugen Services. As partial consideration for the Company's performance of the Ocugen Services, Advaite will pay to the Company a quarterly royalty in the range of mid to high single digits based on net sales of the COVID-19 Tests.
The Advaite Agreement expires on April 29, 2021, unless extended upon mutual agreement of both the Company and Advaite. Except as otherwise specified in the terms of the Advaite Agreement, Advaite’s obligation to make royalty payments to the Company will survive expiration of the Advaite Agreement.
The Advaite Agreement is considered to be within the scope of ASC 808 as the Advaite Agreement represents a joint operating activity and both Advaite and the Company are active participants and exposed to the risks and rewards. The Company has evaluated the Advaite Agreement and determined it is not within the scope of ASC 606 as Advaite does not meet the definition of a customer.
Cost reimbursements are recorded as a reduction in research and development expense in the period incurred. Royalty payments are recorded as collaboration revenue in the period in which the underlying sale occurs. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $0.1 million and $0.3 million as a reduction of research and development expense, respectively. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded no collaboration revenue in connection with the Advaite Agreement. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $42,620 as collaboration revenue in connection with the Advaite Agreement.

7.    Exit and Disposal Activities
On June 15, 2020, the Company, as part of its recent shift in focus toward its gene therapy platform and novel biologics program aimed at curing blindness diseases, communicated notice to 5 employees of termination of their employment. This reduction represents one-third of the Company’s workforce. All terminations were “without cause” and each employee is
16

entitled to receive termination benefits upon departure. The termination dates vary for each employee and range from June 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
As a result of the workforce reduction, the Company recognized severance-related charges of $0.4 million and $1.1 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The Company expects to pay severance benefits of $0.4 million during 2020 and $0.7 million during 2021. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized a de minimis amount of severance-related charges within general and administrative expense and $0.4 million of severance-related charges within research and development expense. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized $0.2 million of severance-related charges within general and administrative expense and $0.9 million of severance-related charges within research and development expense.
The following table outlines the components of the severance-related charges:

8.    Equity Transactions
At-the-Market Offerings
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company sold an aggregate of 27.0 million and 86.2 million shares of common stock, respectively, in separate at-the-market offerings (“ATMs”) commenced in May 2020, June 2020 and August 2020. The Company sold 34.4 million shares under the May 2020 ATM, 24.8 million shares under the June 2020 ATM and 27.0 million shares under the August 2020 ATM. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company received net proceeds of $10.1 million, after deducting commissions, fees and expenses of $0.4 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company received net proceeds of $25.6 million, after deducting commissions, fees and expenses of $1.1 million.
The offerings were made pursuant to the Company's effective "shelf" registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC on March 27, 2020, the base prospectus contained therein dated May 5, 2020, and the prospectus supplements related to the offerings dated May 8, 2020, June 12, 2020 and August 17, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had sold all of the shares of common stock available for issuance under the prospectus supplements filed on May 8, 2020 and June 12, 2020 in connection with the May 2020 and June 2020 ATMs. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had remaining capacity to issue up to $19.5 million of common stock under the prospectus supplement filed on August 17, 2020 in connection with the August 2020 ATM.
Subscription Agreements
On April 22, 2020, the Company entered into a subscription agreement with an accredited investor for the sale of 1,000 shares of the Company's common stock in a private placement for an aggregate offering price of $395. This private placement constituted a Dilutive Issuance (as defined in Note 12) and resulted in adjustments to the Series A Warrants.
On June 6, 2020, the Company entered into a subscription agreement with an accredited investor for the issuance of 1.3 million shares of the Company's common stock in a private placement. The shares of common stock were issued as part of a transaction in settlement of an outstanding obligation of the Company to the accredited investor, in which (i) the Company agreed to make certain cash payments, (ii) the Company issued the 1.3 million shares of common stock in exchange for the accredited investor's agreement to cancel $0.3 million of the outstanding obligation and (iii) the accredited investor agreed to cancel an additional portion of the amount owed by the Company representing a discount of $0.2 million.
On April 5, 2019, OpCo entered into a subscription agreement (the "April 2019 Subscription Agreement") with existing investors for the sale of 0.1 million shares of common stock for $1.0 million. This capital raise triggered the conversion features on the convertible debt described in Note 9 below.

On April 30, 2020, the Company was granted a loan from Silicon Valley Bank ("SVB"), in the aggregate amount of $0.4 million, pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020 (the “CARES Act”). On June 5, 2020, the PPP Flexibility Act of 2020 (the "PPPFA") was signed into law amending the original terms of the PPP. Among other things, the PPPFA extends the deferral period for monthly principal and interest payments from six months to the time when the Small Business Administration (the "SBA") compensates the lender for amounts forgiven as well as extending the covered period for qualifying expenses from eight weeks to the earlier of 24 weeks or December 31, 2020. Certain amounts of the loan may be forgiven if they are used for qualifying expenses as described by the CARES Act.
The loan was in the form of a promissory note dated April 30, 2020 in favor of SVB (the "PPP Note"). The PPP Note matures on April 30, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Principal and interest payments are payable monthly commencing on the date the SBA compensates SVB for forgiven amounts or within 10 months following the expiration of the covered period if the Company has not applied for forgiveness. The Company did not provide any collateral or guarantees for the loan, nor did the Company pay any facility charge to obtain the loan. The PPP Note provides for customary events of default, including, among others, failure to make payment, bankruptcy, breaches of representations and material adverse events.
At September 30, 2020, the carrying value of the PPP Loan was $0.4 million.
Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes
On April 22, 2020, in connection with the Warrant Exchange as defined in Note 12, the Company issued to Investors certain promissory notes (the "Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes") with an aggregate principal amount of $5.6 million. The Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes have a maturity date of April 21, 2021 and do not bear interest. The Company may prepay the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes in whole or in part at any time without penalty or premium. In the event that the Company consummates a financing transaction that generates cash to the Company, the Company is required to use 20% of the net proceeds of such transaction to prepay a portion of the outstanding amount under each Warrant Exchange Promissory Note if the transaction occurs on or prior to August 22, 2020, and 30% of the net proceeds to prepay a portion of the outstanding amount under each Warrant Exchange Promissory Note if that transaction occurs after August 22, 2020.
On April 22, 2020, the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes were recorded at a fair value of $5.0 million. The difference of $0.6 million between the fair value and the aggregate principal amount of $5.6 million was recorded as a debt discount to be accreted to interest expense over the life of the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes. The accretion amounted to $0.3 million and $0.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.
The Company is required to use a percentage of the net proceeds of the ATMs discussed in Note 8 to redeem the outstanding amount under the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company made payments to the Warrant Exchange Promissory Note holders of $3.2 million and $4.4 million, respectively. Subsequent to September 30, 2020, the Company made payments to the Warrant Exchange Promissory Note holders of $1.3 million, causing the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes to be repaid in full and no longer outstanding.

EB-5 Loan Agreement Borrowings
In September 2016, pursuant to the U.S. government’s Immigrant Investor Program, commonly known as the EB-5 program (the “EB-5 Program”), the Company entered into an arrangement (the “EB-5 Loan Agreement”) to borrow up to $10.0 million from EB5 Life Sciences, L.P. (“EB-5 Life Sciences”) in $0.5 million increments. Borrowing may be limited by the amount of funds raised by the EB-5 Life Sciences and are subject to certain job creation requirements by the Company. Borrowings are at a fixed interest rate of 4.0% per annum and are to be utilized in the clinical development, manufacturing, and commercialization of the Company’s products and for the general working capital needs of the Company. Outstanding borrowings pursuant to the EB-5 Program, including accrued interest, become due upon the seventh anniversary of the final disbursement. Amounts repaid cannot be re-borrowed. The EB-5 Program borrowings are secured by substantially all assets of the Company, except for any patents, patent applications, pending patents, patent license, patent sublicense, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights.
Under the terms and conditions of the EB-5 Loan Agreement, the Company borrowed $1.0 million in 2016 and an additional $0.5 million on March 26, 2020. Issuance costs were recognized as a reduction to the loan balance and are amortized to interest expense over the term of the loan.
The carrying values of the EB-5 Loan Agreement borrowings as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 are summarized below:

Senior Secured Convertible Notes
On May 21, 2019, the Company issued senior secured convertible notes to certain investors for $2.4 million at an original issue discount of $0.5 million, and on June 28, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement to issue additional senior secured convertible notes to the investors for $2.9 million with an original issue discount of $0.4 million (together the "Senior Secured Convertible Notes"). Immediately prior to the Merger completed on September 27, 2019, the Investors offset $5.3 million from the amount to be received under the Pre-Merger Financing and the Senior Secured Convertible Notes were deemed to have been repaid and cancelled. The accretion of the original issue discount to interest expense amounted to $0.7 million and $0.8 million during three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.
Convertible Promissory Note
On April 4, 2019, the Company issued a convertible promissory note (the "Convertible Promissory Note") to an existing stockholder for $0.9 million at an interest rate of 5% per annum. On May 16, 2019, the Convertible Promissory Note was converted into equity. OpCo issued 0.1 million shares of common stock at the conversion date to extinguish the debt at $12.41 per share. This non-cash transaction resulted in an increase of $0.9 million in additional paid-in capital, which was based on the principal balance outstanding and the unpaid interest upon conversion.

Convertible Notes
During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company issued convertible notes (the “Convertible Notes”) to new and existing stockholders in the Company, including Convertible Notes in the aggregate principal amount of $3.5 million to members of the Board of Directors. As of December 31, 2019, all Notes had been converted and were 0 longer outstanding.
At issuance, the following amounts were recorded:

Total$8,750,400 $(3,891,172)$(189,158)$4,670,070 
All Convertible Notes accrued interest at a rate of 5% per annum and had scheduled maturity dates on the eighteen month anniversary of the date of the issuance of the Convertible Notes (the “Maturity Date”). If prior to the Maturity Date, there was a consummation of the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, change in control or event of default, the Convertible Notes would become due and payable at an amount equal to 1.5 times the principal amount of the Convertible Notes together with all accrued interest (the “Change in Control Feature”).
If the Company received equity financing from the issuance of stock of the Company from an investor or group of investors in a transaction or series of related transactions above a certain amount of gross proceeds, the principal amount and all interest accrued but not paid through the closing date of the qualified equity financing was to automatically convert into the same class of equity securities as those issued in the qualified equity financing ("Conversion Feature"). The price per share varied among the Convertible Notes ranging from a 0% to 30% discount to the lowest price per share being paid by investors in the qualified equity financing.
The Company bifurcated the Conversion Feature for the January 2018, June 2018, January 2019, and February 2019 Convertible Notes and classified it as a derivative liability because the conversion feature did not have a fixed conversion price and conversion would be settled in a variable number of shares of common stock. There was no bifurcated conversion feature for the November 2018 and December 2018 Convertible Notes as there is no discount to the lowest equity price triggering conversion. The Company also bifurcated the Change in Control Feature for all of the Convertible Notes because it was determined to be a redemption feature not clearly and closely related to the debt host.
The fair value of both of the embedded features was accounted for as a derivative liability and was recorded as a discount on the Convertible Notes. Inputs used in valuation were unobservable and therefore considered Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. The debt discount was accreted into interest expense over the expected time until conversion of the Convertible Notes. The accretion amounted to 0 and $0.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. There was 0 accretion during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 as all Convertible Notes had been converted and were 0 longer outstanding as of December 31, 2019.
The fair value of the embedded features was classified as a liability in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets at issuance, with subsequent changes in fair value recorded on the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss as a change in fair value of derivative liabilities.
As a result of the April 2019 Subscription Agreement as described and defined within Note 8, the triggers for conversion were met on the Convertible Notes. On April 5, 2019, the Convertible Notes were modified to change the discount percentage from the 0% discount per the terms of the November 2018 and December 2018 Convertible Notes and the 15% discount per the terms of the January 2019 and February 2019 Convertible Notes to 30% at the time of conversion. The Company issued 1.1 million shares of common stock at $8.69 per share on the date of conversion to extinguish the debt, which resulted in a loss of $0.3 million. This non-cash conversion also resulted in an increase of $13.0 million in additional paid-in capital, which was based on the principal balance outstanding and the unpaid interest upon conversion.

Equity Plans
The Company maintains 2 equity compensation plans, the 2014 Ocugen OpCo, Inc. Stock Option Plan (the “2014 Plan”) and the Ocugen, Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan”, collectively with the 2014 Plan, the "Plans"), which replaced the Histogenics Corporation 2013 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2013 Plan").
In 2019, Ocugen’s stockholders approved the adoption of the 2019 Plan and the 2013 Plan was frozen. No additional awards have been or will be made under the 2013 Plan and any remaining authorized shares under the 2013 Plan were recycled into the 2019 Plan. On the first business day of each fiscal year, pursuant to the "Evergreen" provision of the 2019 Plan, the aggregate number of shares that may be issued under the 2019 Plan will automatically increase by a number equal to the lesser of 4% of the total number of shares of Company common stock outstanding on December 31st of the prior year, or a number of shares of Company common stock determined by the Board.
As of September 30, 2020, the 2014 Plan provides for the granting of up to 0.8 million equity awards in respect to Ocugen's common stock. As of September 30, 2020, the 2019 Plan provides for the granting of up to 4.2 million equity awards in respect of Ocugen's common stock, inclusive of equity awards that were previously available for issuance under the 2013 Plan and the additional shares authorized for issuance pursuant to the 2019 Plan's "Evergreen" provision on January 1, 2020.
As of September 30, 2020, an aggregate of 0.5 million and 3.8 million shares of Company common stock were issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options under the 2014 Plan and 2019 Plan, respectively.

12.    Warrants
Pre-Merger Financing Warrants
On September 27, 2019, Ocugen completed the Merger with OpCo. Immediately prior to the Merger, Ocugen and OpCo completed the Pre-Merger Financing, a previously announced private placement transaction with certain Investors pursuant to the Financing SPA, whereby, among other things, the Company agreed to issue Series A Warrants, Series B Warrants, and Series C Warrants.
On November 5, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement with each Investor that amended the terms of each of the Pre-Merger Financing Warrants held by each such Investor (collectively, the “Warrant Amendments”). The terms of the Pre-Merger Financing Warrants and the Warrant Amendments are discussed below. There were no Pre-Merger Financing Warrants outstanding at September 30, 2020.
Series A Warrants
The Series A Warrants had an initial exercise price per share of $7.13, were exercisable upon issuance and had a term of 60 months from the date of issuance. The Series A Warrants were exercisable for up to 8.8 million shares of Ocugen common stock.
The Series A Warrants had an anti-dilution adjustment whereby if Ocugen issues or sells, enters into a definitive, binding agreement pursuant to which Ocugen is required to issue or sell or is deemed, pursuant to the provisions of the Series A Warrants, to have issued or sold, any common stock for a price per share lower than the exercise price then in effect (a “Dilutive Issuance”), subject to certain limited exceptions, then (i) the exercise price of the Series A Warrants shall be reduced
23

to such lower price per share and (ii) the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Series A Warrants shall be increased to the number of shares of common stock determined by multiplying (a) the exercise price in effect immediately prior to such Dilutive Issuance by (b) the number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Series A Warrants immediately prior to such Dilutive Issuance (without giving effect to any limitation on exercise contained therein), and dividing the product thereof by the exercise price resulting from such Dilutive Issuance.
All of the Series A Warrants were outstanding and exercisable as of December 31, 2019. Pursuant to the Warrant Exchange (as defined below), no Series A Warrants were outstanding as of September 30, 2020.
Series B Warrants
The Series B Warrants had an exercise price of $0.01, were exercisable after the completion of a 10 trading-day period following the effectiveness of a registration statement covering the resale of common stock into which such warrants were exercisable and were to expire on the date on which the Series B Warrants have been exercised in full (without giving effect to any limitation on exercise contained therein) and no shares remain issuable thereunder. The Series B Warrants were initially exercisable by the holders for 8.0 million shares of common stock.
Additionally, each Series B Warrant included a Reset Period pursuant to which the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Series B Warrants shall be increased during certain Reset Periods (as defined in the Series B Warrants). The Reset Period concluded in November 2019 and resulted in an aggregate of 12.6 million additional shares of common stock becoming issuable upon exercise of the Series B Warrants. There were 1,000 Series B Warrants outstanding at December 31, 2019. There were 0 Series B Warrants outstanding at September 30, 2020.
Series C Warrants
The Series C Warrants were exercisable upon issuance for up to 50.0 million shares of common stock at an initial exercise price of $7.13 per share. Each of the Series C Warrants was amended pursuant to the Warrant Amendments to permit the Investors, in lieu of making any cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon the exercise of the Series C Warrant, to elect instead to receive upon such exercise up to 20.0 million shares of common stock. Prior to the Warrant Amendments, the Series C Warrants had permitted the exercise without any cash payment of up to 50.0 million shares of common stock in the event that the volume weighted-average price of the common stock on Nasdaq was less than or equal to $1.20 per share on any five trading days following the issuance of the Series C Warrants. There were 1,000 Series C Warrants outstanding at December 31, 2019. There were 0 Series C Warrants outstanding at September 30, 2020.
Accounting for the Pre-Merger Financing Warrants
As of December 31, 2019, the Pre-Merger Financing Warrants were classified as equity. At issuance, the Series B Warrants were classified as a liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as they did not meet the derivative scope exception to be accounted for within stockholders' equity. The Series B Warrants were initially measured at fair value and marked to market each reporting period. Upon the completion of the Reset Period in November 2019, the Series B Warrants were reassessed and determined to meet the derivative scope exception allowing for equity classification. The Series B Warrants were marked to market a final time and the remaining liability balance was reclassified to equity.
The fair value of the Series B Warrants was calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation while estimating the stock price during the Reset Period, based on the terms described within the Financing SPA. Key fair value inputs included the starting stock price, expected stock volatility during the Reset Period, and additional shares issued from escrow. The methodology for measuring fair value was sensitive to the expected stock volatility assumption input mentioned above. The volatility used in the fair value estimate was 96.0% and 97.0% as of September 27, 2019 and September 30, 2019, respectively. Inputs used in the valuation were unobservable and were therefore classified as Level 3 fair value inputs. The fair value of the Series B Warrants upon the end of the Reset Period was based on a Black-Scholes valuation model, which is classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.

Warrant Exchange
On April 22, 2020, the Company entered into a subscription agreement as discussed within Note 8. The subscription agreement constituted a Dilutive Issuance (as defined above) and resulted in adjustments to the number of issuable Series A Warrants and the exercise price under the Series A Warrants.
Contemporaneously with the subscription agreement, the Company and OpCo entered into Amendment and Exchange Agreements (each an "Exchange Agreement" and collectively, the "Exchange Agreements") with the Investors. Pursuant to the Exchange Agreements, the Company, OpCo and the Investors agreed, among other things, after giving effect to the Dilutive Issuance, to amend the Series A Warrants to provide for an adjustment to the number of common stock issuable upon the exercise of the Series A Warrants. Concurrently with such amendments, the Investors exchanged the Series A Warrants for (i) an aggregate of 21.9 million shares of common stock and (ii) the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes as defined in Note 9 (collectively the "Warrant Exchange"). Following the consummation of the Warrant Exchange and the concurrent exercise of the remaining Series B Warrants and Series C Warrants, there were no Pre-Merger Financing Warrants outstanding at September 30, 2020.
The Company accounted for the Warrant Exchange by recognizing the fair value of the consideration transferred in excess of the carrying value of the Series A Warrants as a reduction of additional paid-in capital. The fair value of the consideration transferred to settle the Series A Warrants was approximately $13.6 million, comprised of $8.6 million in shares of common stock and the fair value of the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes of $5.0 million. The fair value of consideration transferred to settle the Series A warrants was in excess of the fair value of the Series A Warrants immediately prior to the transaction by approximately $12.5 million. The excess consideration was accounted for as a deemed dividend to the warrant holders and is reflected as an additional net loss attributed to common stockholders in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss per common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The fair value of the Series A Warrants immediately prior to the Warrant Exchange was $1.1 million, which was estimated using a Black-Scholes valuation model utilizing Level 3 inputs.
OpCo Warrants
Prior to 2018, OpCo issued warrants to investors of the Company pursuant to a stockholders' agreement and to 2 employees of the Company pursuant to their respective employment agreements. As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, 0.9 million warrants to purchase common stock were outstanding and exercisable and had a weighted average exercise price of $5.67 per share. The warrants expire between 2025 and 2027.
13.    Subsequent Events
On October 9, 2020, the Company entered into a lease agreement (the "Lease Agreement") with WPT Land 2 LP (the "Landlord") for an expanded office and laboratory space located in Malvern, Pennsylvania. The Lease Agreement has an expected commencement date in early 2021 and an initial term of seven years. The aggregate estimated base rent payments due over the initial seven year term of the Lease Agreement is $1.8 million. In addition, the Company will pay its pro rata share of the Landlord's annual operating expenses associated with the premises. The Company has the option to extend the Lease Agreement for 1 additional five year term. The Company has an existing lease agreement with the Landlord for the Company's current office space. Provided that the Company is not under an event of default and surrenders the current office space pursuant to the terms of the Lease Agreement and in the condition required by the existing lease agreement, the existing lease agreement will be deemed terminated without penalty to the Company.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and with our audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019, included in our 2019 Annual Report. Some of the information contained in this discussion and analysis, including information with respect to our plans and strategy for our business and related financing, include forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. These statements are based on our beliefs and expectations about future outcomes and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from anticipated results. We undertake no obligation to publicly update these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. You should read the “Risk Factors” section included in our 2019 Annual Report and the "Risk Factors" and “Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” sections of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in the following discussion and analysis.
Overview
We are a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing transformative therapies to cure blindness diseases.
Our cutting-edge technology pipeline includes:
Modifier Gene Therapy Platform—Based on NHRs, we believe our gene therapy platform has the potential to address many retinal diseases, including RP, with one product.
Novel Biologic Therapy for Retinal Diseases—We are developing OCU200, which is being developed to treat DME, DR and wet AMD.
We are developing a breakthrough modifier gene therapy platform to generate therapies designed to fulfill unmet medical needs in the area of retinal diseases, including IRDs, and dry AMD. Our modifier gene therapy platform is based on NHRs which have the potential to restore homeostasis, the basic biological processes in the retina. Unlike single-gene replacement therapies, which only target one genetic mutation, we believe that our gene therapy platform, through its use of NHRs, represents a novel approach in that it may address multiple retinal diseases with one product. IRDs such as RP, a group of rare genetic disorders that involves a breakdown and loss of cells in the retina and can lead to visual impairment and blindness, affect over 1.5 million people worldwide. Over 150 gene mutations have been associated with RP and this number represents only 60% of the RP population. The remaining 40% of RP patients cannot be genetically diagnosed, making it difficult to develop individual treatments. We believe our first gene therapy candidate, OCU400, has the potential to eliminate the need for developing more than 150 individual products and provide one treatment option for all RP patients.
OCU400 has received four ODDs from the FDA for the treatment of certain disease genotypes: NR2E3, CEP290, RHO, and PDE6B mutation-associated RP. We are planning to initiate two Phase 1/2a clinical trials for OCU400 in the second half of 2021. Our second gene therapy candidate, OCU410, is being developed to utilize the nuclear receptor genes RORA for the treatment of dry AMD. This candidate is currently in preclinical development. We are planning to initiate a Phase 1/2a clinical trial for OCU410 in 2022.
We are also conducting preclinical development for our biologic product candidate, OCU200. OCU200 is a novel fusion protein designed to treat DME, DR and wet AMD. We plan to expand the therapeutic applications of OCU200 beyond DME, DR and wet AMD to potentially include macular edema following retinal vein occlusion and myopic choroidal neovascularization. We expect to initiate IND-enabling preclinical studies for OCU200 in 2021 and a Phase 1/2a clinical trial for OCU200 in the first half of 2022. In October 2020, we entered into an agreement with Kemwell Biopharma Pvt. Ltd. ("Kemwell") to manufacture OCU200. Under this agreement, Kemwell will manage all chemistry, manufacturing and control and clinical manufacturing activities as well as provide supplies for IND-enabling preclinical studies and our planned Phase 1/2a clinical trials.
We were developing OCU300, a small molecule therapeutic for the treatment of symptoms associated with oGVHD. On June 1, 2020, we announced that we had discontinued the Phase 3 trial of OCU300 based on results of a pre-planned interim sample size analysis conducted by an independent Data Monitoring Committee, which indicated the trial was unlikely to meet its co-primary endpoints upon completion. The trial was not stopped based on safety concerns. We are no longer pursuing the development of this product candidate.
26

We were previously developing OCU310 for patients with dry eye disease. We completed a Phase 3 clinical trial for OCU310 that was initiated in September 2018. Although the trial showed that OCU310 is safe and well-tolerated, it did not meet its co-primary endpoints for symptom and sign. We are no longer pursuing the development of this product candidate.
We have no products approved for commercial sale and have not generated any revenue from product sales. We have never been profitable and have incurred operating losses in each year since inception. We incurred net losses of approximately $18.0 million and $32.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As of September 30, 2020, we had an accumulated deficit of $69.5 million and a cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash balance of $19.3 million. Substantially all of our operating losses resulted from expenses incurred in connection with our research and development programs and from general and administrative costs associated with our operations.
To date, we have viewed our operations and manage our business as one operating segment. As of September 30, 2020, all of our assets were located in the United States. Our headquarters and operations are located in Malvern, Pennsylvania.
Financial Operations Overview
Collaboration revenue
Collaboration revenue consists of royalty payments received in connection with agreements accounted for as collaborative arrangements under ASC 808. The Company assesses whether royalty payments from collaboration partners represent consideration from a customer. If the collaboration partner is considered a customer, the Company accounts for those payments within the scope of ASC 606. However, when the Company concludes that its collaboration partner is not a customer, the Company will record royalty payments received as collaboration revenue in the period in which the underlying sale occurs. See Note 5 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report for additional information.
Research and development expense
Research and development costs are expensed as incurred. These costs consist of internal and external expenses. Internal expenses include the cost of salaries, benefits, severance and other related costs, including stock-based compensation, for personnel serving in our research and development functions, as well as allocated rent and utilities expenses. External expenses include development, clinical trials, patent costs and regulatory compliance costs incurred with research organizations and other third-party vendors. License fees paid to acquire access to proprietary technology are expensed to research and development unless it is determined that the technology is expected to have an alternative future use. All patent-related costs incurred in connection with filing and prosecuting patent applications are expensed as incurred to research and development expense due to the uncertainty about the recovery of the expenditure. We record costs for certain development activities, such as clinical trials, based on our evaluation of the progress to completion of specific tasks using data such as patient enrollment, clinical site activations, or information provided to us by our vendors on their actual costs incurred. Payments for these activities are based on the terms of the individual arrangements, which may differ from the pattern of costs incurred, and are reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements as prepaid or accrued research and development expense, as the case may be.
We anticipate that our research and development expenses, excluding charges to in-process research and development expense, will increase modestly as compared to prior periods as we conduct preclinical activities in preparation for Phase 1/2a trials with respect to OCU400, OCU410, and OCU200 that we plan to commence in 2021 and 2022.
General and administrative expense
General and administrative expense consists primarily of personnel expenses, including salaries, benefits, severance and stock-based compensation expense, for employees in executive, accounting and other administrative functions. General and administrative expense also includes corporate facility costs, including rent and utilities, insurance premiums, legal fees related to corporate matters and fees for accounting and other consulting services.
We anticipate that our general and administrative expenses will increase as a result of higher corporate infrastructure costs including, but not limited to accounting, legal, human resources, consulting, and investor relations fees, as well as increased director and officer insurance premiums, associated with operating as a public company.
27

Severance-related expense
In June 2020, we communicated notice to five employees of termination of their employment. This reduction represents one-third of our workforce. All terminations were “without cause” and each employee is entitled to receive termination benefits upon departure. The termination dates vary for each employee and range from June 30, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
As a result of the workforce reduction, we recognized severance-related charges of $0.4 million and $1.1 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. We expect to pay severance benefits of $0.4 million during 2020 and $0.7 million during 2021. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recognized a de minimis amount of severance-related charges within general and administrative expense and $0.4 million of severance-related charges within research and development expense. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we recognized $0.2 million of severance-related charges within general and administrative expense and $0.9 million of severance-related charges within research and development expense. We expect that the workforce reduction will result in approximately $2.0 million in annualized cost savings commencing in 2021.
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities includes the change in fair value each reporting period of (a) the conversion and change in control features embedded in certain convertible notes, which were required to be bifurcated and recognized at fair value, and (b) the change in the fair value of the Company's Series B Warrants.
Interest expense
Interest expense primarily includes debt coupon interest, the amortization of debt issuance costs, and the accretion of debt discounts.
Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make judgments, estimates and assumptions in the preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. There were no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates as reported in our 2019 Annual Report.

Research and development expense
Research and development expense increased by $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of an increase of $0.4 million in severance-related charges related to the employee terminations announced in June 2020, partially offset by a decrease of $0.2 million in employee-related expenses.
In-process research and development expense
In-process research and development expense increased by $7.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019 as a result of the NeoCart® asset, which ceased to meet the criteria to be classified as held for sale during the three months ended September 30, 2020.
General and administrative expense
General and administrative expenses increased by $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of increases of $0.3 million in insurance premiums, $0.2 million in employee-related expenses, and $0.1 million in consulting fees, partially offset by a decrease of $0.3 million in professional fees.
Change in fair value of derivative liability
The change in fair value of derivative liability was zero for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a loss of $18.5 million primarily due to the remeasurement of the Series B Warrant liability during the three months ended September 30, 2019.
Interest expense
Interest expense was $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to the conversions of all previously issued convertible debt during 2019. Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2020 primarily relates to the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes.
Other income (expense)
Other income (expense) was zero for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in other expense was primarily due to equity issuance costs related to the Series B Warrants which were expensed during the three months ended September 30, 2019 since the Series B Warrants were liability-classified.

Research and development expense
Research and development expense decreased by $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of a decrease of $2.5 million related to the discontinuation of OCU310 clinical trial activities in the first quarter of 2019 and $0.2 million in employee-related expenses, partially offset by an increase of $0.9 million in severance-related charges related to the employee terminations announced in June 2020 and $0.6 million related to OCU300 clinical trial activities conducted in 2020.
In-process research and development expense
In-process research and development expense increased by $7.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as a result of the NeoCart® asset, which ceased to meet the criteria to be classified as held for sale during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
General and administrative expense
General and administrative expenses increased by $2.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily as a result of an increase of $0.8 million in insurance premiums, $0.5 million in professional and consulting fees, $0.4 million in employee-related expenses, $0.3 million in Board of Director fees, and $0.2 million in severance-related charges related to the employee terminations announced in June 2020.

Change in fair value of derivative liability
The change in fair value of derivative liability was zero for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a loss of $19.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to the remeasurement of the Series B Warrant liability during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
Loss on Debt Conversion
The loss on debt conversion was zero for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to a loss of $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 relating to conversions in 2019 of all previously issued convertible debt.
Interest expense
Interest expense was $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to the conversions of all previously issued convertible debt during 2019. Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 primarily relates to the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes.
Other income (expense)
Other income (expense) was a de minimis amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $0.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in other income (expense) was primarily due to equity issuance costs related to the Series B Warrants which were expensed during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 since the Series B Warrants were liability-classified.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2020, we had $19.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. We have not generated any revenue from product sales to date and have primarily funded our operations to date through the sale of common stock, warrants to purchase common stock, the issuance of convertible notes, debt, and grant proceeds. Specifically, since our inception and through September 30, 2020, we have raised an aggregate of $79.1 million to fund our operations, of which $66.5 million was from the sale of our common stock and warrants, $10.3 million was from the issuance of convertible notes, $2.1 million was from debt, and $0.2 million from grant proceeds.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we sold an aggregate of 86.2 million shares of our common stock in separate at-the-market offerings (“ATMs”) commenced in May 2020, June 2020 and August 2020. We sold 34.4 million shares under the May 2020 ATM, 24.8 million shares under the June 2020 ATM and 27.0 million shares under the August 2020 ATM. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we received net proceeds of $25.6 million from the ATMs, after deducting commissions, fees and expenses of $1.1 million. The offerings were made pursuant to our effective "shelf" registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC on March 27, 2020, the base prospectus contained therein dated May 5, 2020, and the prospectus supplements related to the offerings dated May 8, 2020, June 12, 2020 and August 17, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, we had sold all of the shares of common stock available for issuance under the prospectus supplements filed on May 8, 2020 and June 12, 2020 in connection with the May 2020 and June 2020 ATMs. As of September 30, 2020, we had remaining capacity to issue up to $19.5 million of common stock under the prospectus supplement filed on August 17, 2020 in connection with the August 2020 ATM.
Since our inception, we have devoted substantial resources to research and development and have incurred significant net losses and expect to continue to incur net losses for the foreseeable future. We incurred net losses of approximately $18.0 million and $32.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As of September 30, 2020, we had an accumulated deficit of $69.5 million. In addition, as of September 30, 2020, we had accounts payable and accrued expenses of $2.6 million and indebtedness of $3.2 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities22,144 24,159 
Net increase in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash$11,662 $13,673 
Operating activities
Cash used in operating activities was $10.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared $8.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in cash used in operating activities was primarily driven by the decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses and the increase in prepayments, current and other assets during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
Investing activities
Cash used in investing activities was $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared with $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in cash used in investing activities was primarily driven by the payment of acquisition costs during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 with no comparable payments made during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Financing activities
Cash provided by financing activities was $22.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $24.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, cash provided by financing activities was primarily driven by gross proceeds of $26.7 million received under May 2020, June 2020, and August 2020 ATMs and $0.9 million in proceeds from the issuance of debt, partially offset by payments of equity issuance costs of $1.1 million and repayments of debt of $4.4 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, cash provided by financing activities included proceeds from the Pre-Merger Financing of $22.4 million, proceeds from the issuance of convertible debt of $6.8 million, and proceeds from an April 2019 stock subscription agreement of $1.0 million, partially offset by payments of equity issuance costs of $0.6 million and repayments of debt of $5.3 million
Indebtedness
On March 27, 2020, the President of the United States signed into law the CARES Act, a sweeping stimulus bill intended to bolster the U.S. economy, among other things, and provide emergency assistance to qualifying businesses and individuals. On April 30, 2020, we were granted a loan from SVB in the aggregate amount of $0.4 million, pursuant to the PPP of the CARES Act. Certain amounts of the loan may be forgiven if they are used for qualifying expenses as described by the CARES Act. The loan was in the form of a promissory note which matures on April 30, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum, payable monthly commencing on the date the SBA compensates SVB for amounts forgiven or within 10 months following the expiration of the 24-week covered period for qualifying expenses if we have not applied for forgiveness. At September 30, 2020, there was $0.4 million of principal outstanding under the PPP loan.
On April 22, 2020, we issued the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes with an aggregate principal amount of $5.6 million to existing investors in connection with an exchange of our Series A Warrants. The Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes had a maturity date of April 21, 2021 and did not bear interest. The Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes permitted prepayment in whole or in part at any time without penalty or premium. In the event that we consummated a financing transaction that generated cash to us, we were required to use 20% of the net proceeds of such transaction to prepay a portion of the outstanding amount under each Warrant Exchange Promissory Note if the transaction occurred on or prior to August 22, 2020, and 30% of the net proceeds to prepay a portion of the outstanding amount under each Warrant Exchange Promissory Note if the transaction occurred after August 22, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, there was $1.3 million of principal outstanding under the
32

Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes. On October 2, 2020, we made additional payments of $1.3 million causing the Warrant Exchange Promissory Notes to be repaid in full and no longer outstanding.
In September 2016, pursuant to the EB-5 Program, we entered into the EB-5 Loan Agreement to borrow up to $10.0 million from EB5 Life Sciences in $0.5 million increments. Borrowings are at a fixed interest rate of 4.0% and are to be utilized in the clinical development, manufacturing, and commercialization of our products and for our general working capital needs. Outstanding borrowings pursuant to the EB-5 Program become due upon the seventh anniversary of the final disbursement. Amounts repaid cannot be re-borrowed. Under the terms and conditions of the EB-5 Loan Agreement, we borrowed $0.5 million on March 26, 2020. At September 30, 2020, there was $1.5 million of principal outstanding under the EB-5 program.
Funding requirements
We expect to continue to incur significant expenses in connection with our ongoing activities, particularly as we continue research and development, including preclinical and clinical development activities of our product candidates, and add operational, financial and information systems to execute our business plan, maintain, expand and protect our patent portfolio, contract to manufacture our product candidates and operate as a public company.
Our future funding requirements, both near- and long-term, will depend on many factors, including, but not limited to:
the initiation, progress, timing, costs and results of clinical trials for our product candidates;
the outcome, timing and cost of the regulatory approval process for our product candidates by the FDA;
future costs of manufacturing and commercialization;
the cost of filing, prosecuting, defending and enforcing our patent claims and other intellectual property rights;
the cost of defending intellectual property disputes, including patent infringement actions brought by third parties against us;
the costs of expanding infrastructure, as well as the higher corporate infrastructure costs associated with operating as a public company; and
the extent to which we in-license or acquire other products, product candidates or technologies.
As of September 30, 2020, we had $19.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. This amount is unlikely to meet our near-term capital requirements and will not meet our capital requirements over the next 12 months. Our management is currently evaluating different strategies to obtain the required funding for future operations. These strategies may include, but are not limited to: public and private placements of equity and/or debt, payments from potential strategic research and development, sale of assets, and licensing and/or collaboration arrangements with pharmaceutical companies or other institutions. There can be no assurance that these future funding efforts will be successful. If we cannot obtain the necessary funding, we will need to delay, scale back or eliminate some or all of our research and development programs; consider other various strategic alternatives, including a merger or sale; or cease operations. If we cannot expand our operations or otherwise capitalize on our business opportunities because we lack sufficient capital, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely affected.
As previously disclosed, on December 27, 2019, we received a deficiency letter from the NASDAQ Capital Market ("Nasdaq") due to the bid price of our common stock falling below the minimum bid price for continued listing under Nasdaq listing rules for 30 consecutive days. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and related extraordinary market conditions, Nasdaq tolled the compliance period for non-compliance with the minimum bid price listing requirement, effective April 16, 2020, until June 30, 2020 (the "Tolling Period"). Following the Tolling Period, we had until September 7, 2020 to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. We did not regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement as of September 7, 2020 and provided written notice to Nasdaq stating that we met the other continued listing requirements of Nasdaq and requesting an extension of the compliance period. On September 8, 2020, we received a written notice from the Nasdaq that we have been granted an additional 180 calendar days, or until March 8, 2021, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. If we are unable to regain compliance with Nasdaq listing rules regarding the price of our common stock in a timely manner, our common stock may become subject to delisting and we may find it difficult or impracticable to raise additional funds through public equity offerings.
As a result of these factors, together with the anticipated increase in spending that will be necessary to continue to develop our products, we have concluded that there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern within one year

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We have carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, as of September 30, 2020. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures are effective in ensuring that (a) the 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, and (b) such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.
