VYCOR MEDICAL, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2021

(Unaudited)

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Vycor Medical, Inc. (the “Company” or “Vycor”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Exchange Commission. In accordance with those rules and regulations certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 derives from the audited financial statements at that date, but does not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the entire year.

 

Ability to continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has incurred losses since its inception, including a net loss of $248,600 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and has not generated sufficient positive cash flows from operations. As of September 30, 2021 the Company had a working capital deficiency of $503,812, excluding related party liabilities of $2,041,079. These conditions, among others, raise substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

The Company is executing on a plan to achieve a reduction in cash operating losses. Included within the working capital deficiency above is a term note for $300,000 to EuroAmerican Investment Corp. (“EuroAmerican”), together with accrued interest of $364,798, which has a maturity date of March 31, 2022, having been extended on a number of occasions from its initial due date of June 11, 2011. At this time, it is not known whether any further extension of the note beyond March 31, 2022 will be available. However, the Company believes it may not have sufficient cash to meet its various cash needs and repayment obligations through November 30, 2022 unless the Company is able to obtain additional cash from the issuance of debt or equity securities. Fountainhead Capital Management Limited (“Fountainhead”), the Company’s largest shareholder, has provided working capital funding to the Company on an as-needed basis, although there is no guarantee that this will continue to be the case. The Company may consider seeking additional equity or debt funding, although there is no assurance that this would be available on acceptable terms or at all. If adequate funds are not available, the Company may have to delay or curtail development or commercialization of products or cease some of its operations.

 

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Vycor Medical, Inc., and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, NovaVision, Inc. (a Delaware corporation), NovaVision GmbH (a German corporation) and Sight Science Limited (a UK corporation), both wholly owned subsidiaries of NovaVision, Inc. The Company is headquartered in Boca Raton, FL. All material inter-company account balances, transactions, and profits have been eliminated in consolidation. Following the decision in April 2020 to close the German office of NovaVision, the activities of NovaVision GmbH have been accounted for as discontinued operations.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

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

 

Discontinued Operations

 

In accordance with ASU No. 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, a disposal of a component of an entity or a group of components of an entity is required to be reported as discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results when the components of an entity meets the criteria in paragraph 205-20-45-1E to be classified as held for sale. When all of the criteria to be classified as held for sale are met, including management, having the authority to approve the action, commits to a plan to sell the entity, the major current assets, other assets, current liabilities, and noncurrent liabilities shall be reported as components of total assets and liabilities separate from those balances of the continuing operations. At the same time, the results of all discontinued operations (which we presented as operations to be disposed and operations disposed), less applicable income taxes (benefit), shall be reported as components of net income (loss) separate from the net income (loss) of continuing operations in accordance with ASC 205-20-45.

 

Accounting for forgivable loan received under the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program

 

During the year ended December 31, 2020 the Company received a loan of $58,600 (“First Draw Loan”), pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under Division A, Title I of the CARES Act. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021 the Company received an additional PPP loan of $58,600 (“Second Draw Loan”). Under the terms of the PPP, both the First Draw Loan and Second Draw Loan were forgiven during the period as they were used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act.

 

The Company accounted for the loans as a financial liability in accordance with FASB ASC 470 and accrued interest in accordance with the interest method under FASB ASC 835-30. For purposes of derecognition of the liability, FASB ASC 470-50-15-4 refers to guidance in FASB ASC 405-20. Based on this guidance, the proceeds of the loans were recorded as a liability until either (1) the loans are, in part or wholly, forgiven and the Company has been “legally released”, or (2) the Company pays off the loans. The Company has accordingly reduced the liability by the amount forgiven and recorded a gain on the extinguishment.

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed giving effect to all dilutive potential common shares that were outstanding during the period. Dilutive potential common shares consist of incremental shares issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants and conversion of preferred stock and convertible debt. Such potentially dilutive shares are excluded when the effect would be to reduce a net loss per share. No dilution adjustment has been made to the weighted average outstanding common shares in the periods presented because the assumed exercise of outstanding options and warrants and the conversion of preferred stock and debt would be anti-dilutive.

Covid-19

 

Vycor Medical experienced a significant reduction in demand during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 in the US and Europe, particularly in the second quarter, with some recovery in the third and fourth quarters. This recovery continued at a stronger level during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 such that sales for the Vycor Medical division increased by 32% over the same period in 2020. Although neurosurgery is not considered an elective procedure, general hospital dislocation and diversion of resources away from non-emergency surgeries, or surgeries that can be postponed for a short period without harm, has impacted our revenues during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and although this has recovered during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, COVID-19 remains classified as a pandemic and this could impact future sales. In addition, sales and marketing efforts by Vycor’s representatives were disrupted or curtailed during periods of lockdown and social distancing, and this may continue to hinder the recovery of revenues, particularly in certain international territories where vaccination rates remain relatively low. While our operations are principally located in the United States, and our sub-contract manufacturers are located in the United States, we participate in a global supply chain, and COVID-19 may impact our ability to conduct normal business operations, which could adversely affect our results of operations and liquidity. Furthermore, our sub-contract manufacturers have experienced, and continue to experience, staffing shortages and this has elongated our production lead times. Disruptions to our supply chain and business operations, or to our suppliers’ or customers’ supply chains and business operations, could include disruptions from supplier staff absences due to COVID-19 illness or isolation requirements, the closure of supplier and manufacturer facilities, interruptions in the supply of raw materials and components, or restrictions on the shipment of our or our suppliers’ or customers’ products, any of which could have adverse ripple effects on our manufacturing output and delivery schedule. Although we have implemented business continuity plans for our offices and personnel to enable continuity of service remotely if required, if a critical number of our employees become too ill to work, or we are not able to access a sufficient quantity of our inventory for shipment due to enforced office closures, our production ability could be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Similarly, if our customers experience adverse business consequences due to COVID-19, or any other, pandemic, demand for our products could also be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Global health concerns, such as COVID-19, could also result in social, economic, and labor instability in the countries and localities in which we or our suppliers and customers operate. Any of these uncertainties could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

3. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

In April 2020, the board of Vycor took the decision to close the German operations of NovaVision, including the German office and NovaVision GmbH, and instead migrate to a licensed business model; in June 2020 Vycor announced that it would be entering into a license agreement and transition agreement (the “Agreements”) with HelferApp GmbH, a cognitive therapy specialist. Under the Agreements, HelferApp is licensed to provide NovaVision’s products and therapies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to patients and professionals; and has assumed responsibility for the current patients of NovaVision in the territory. The NovaVision German office was closed effective June 30, 2020. The Company will continue to fund the remaining expenses of the German operations, which are non-material, until such a time as NovaVision GmbH is formally wound up.

9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Lease

 

The Company leases office space located at 951 Broken Sound Parkway, Suite 320, Boca Raton, FL 33487 from WPT Land 2 L.P., for a gross rent of approximately $4,000 per month, plus other charges of approximately $2,500 per month. The lease terminated September 30, 2020 and was extended for a further three years to August 31, 2023. The Company’s subsidiary in Germany occupied premises on a rolling 12 month lease agreement with a 3 month notice period of EUR1,650 per month (approximately $1,815), which was terminated effective June 30, 2020. Rent expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 for the continuing operations was $58,691 and $59,008 respectively. See Note 5.

 

Potential German tax liability

 

In June 2012 the Company’s NovaVision German subsidiary received a preliminary assessment for Magdeburg City trade tax of €75,000 (approximately $82,000), with an additional interest charge of €12,000 (approximately $13,200). This assessment is for the 2010 fiscal year and relates to the Company’s acquisition of the assets of the former NovaVision, Inc. An initial assessment for corporate tax for the same period was preliminarily reduced to zero. The Company did not accept this trade tax assessment and appealed against it to the relevant tax authorities with a view to its reduction. The relevant tax authorities agreed to suspend the assessment pending the outcome of certain court hearings and proposed tax legislation, and the Company agreed to make monthly payments on account totaling €75,000 (approximately $82,000) which were completed in October 2016 and fully expensed. At that time the Company appealed against the interest charge of €12,000 (approximately $13,200) which the tax authorities did not accept but also agreed to suspend pending the outcome of the hearings and proposed legislation outlined above. Accordingly, the Company has made no provision for this liability in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and the year ended December 31, 2020 respectively. The Company is in the process of winding down the entity, as disclosed in Note 3.

Under the Amended Agreement, fees are payable to Fountainhead, with an option to receive $5,000 per month in cash, and the remainder payable in Company Common Stock (“Shares”) as follows: 1) 535,714 Shares on the last day of each quarter; to the extent there are cash retainer payments during the quarter, the Shares shall be reduced by a number calculated by dividing the cash amount by the average closing price of the Shares for the 30 trading days prior to issuance; or 2) if the average closing price of the Shares for the 30 trading days prior to issuance is above $0.21, a number of Shares calculated by dividing $112,500 by the average closing price of the Shares for the 30 trading days prior to issuance.

Under the terms of the Amended Agreement, Fountainhead continues to provide the executive management team of the Company, including the positions of CEO, President and CFO, whose employment agreements with the Company stipulate they receive no remuneration from the Company.

1. Organizational History

 

The Company was formed as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of New York on June 17, 2005 as “Vycor Medical LLC”. On August 14, 2007, we converted into a Delaware corporation and changed our name to “Vycor Medical, Inc.”. The Company’s listing went effective on February 2009 and on November 29, 2010 Vycor completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of NovaVision, Inc. (“NovaVision”) and on January 4, 2012 Vycor, through its wholly-owned NovaVision subsidiary, completed the acquisition of all the shares of Sight Science Limited (“Sight Science”).

2. Overview of Business

 

Vycor is dedicated to providing the medical community with innovative and superior surgical and therapeutic solutions and operates two distinct business units within the medical device industry. Vycor Medical designs, develops and markets medical devices for use in neurosurgery. NovaVision provides non-invasive rehabilitation therapies for those who have vision disorders resulting from neurological brain damage such as that caused by a stroke. Both businesses adopt a minimally or non-invasive approach. Both technologies have strong sales growth potential, address large potential markets and have the requisite regulatory approvals. The Company has 67 issued or allowed patents and a further 10 pending. The Company leverages joint resources across the divisions to operate in a cost-efficient manner.

 

The Company periodically engages in discussions with potential strategic partners for or purchasers of each or both of our operating divisions. In April 2020, the board of Vycor took the decision to close the German operations of NovaVision, including the German office and NovaVision GmbH, and instead migrate to a licensed business model; in June 2020 Vycor announced that it would be entering into a license agreement and transition agreement (the “Agreements”) with HelferApp GmbH, a cognitive therapy specialist. Under the Agreements, HelferApp is licensed to provide NovaVision’s products and therapies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland to patients and professionals; and has assumed responsibility for the current patients of NovaVision in the territory. The NovaVision German office was closed effective June 30, 2020.

 

Vycor Medical

 

Vycor Medical designs, develops and markets medical devices for use in neurosurgery. Vycor Medical’s ViewSite Brain Access System (“VBAS”) is a next generation retraction and access system that was fully commercialized in early 2010 and is the first significant technological change to brain tissue retraction in over 50 years in contrast to significant development in most other neuro-surgical technologies. Vycor Medical is ISO 13485:2016 and MDSAP (Medical Device Single Audit Program) certified, and VBAS has U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance and CE Marking for Europe (Class III) for brain and spine surgeries, and regulatory approvals in a number of other international markets. Vycor Medical has 29 granted and 10 pending patents.

 

NovaVision

 

NovaVision provides non-invasive, computer-based rehabilitation therapies targeted at people who have impaired vision as a result of stroke or other brain injury, and has 38 granted patents.

 

Strategy

 

The Company is continuing to execute on a plan to achieve revenue growth and a reduction in annual cash operating losses1 and generated a cash operating profit1 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. For Vycor Medical this plan includes: increasing market penetration in the US; increasing international growth in territories where we are not represented or under-represented and continued new product development in response to market demands. In the US the Company is focused on increasing market penetration through targeting neurosurgeons systematically, both through its distribution network and also directly by leveraging existing KOL neurosurgeon VBAS supporters to access new neurosurgeon users.

 

The Company continues to target key international territories including Europe where it intends to drive adoption of its VBAS product through selected key KOL neurosurgeon VBAS users in each territory to identify both new potential users and also high quality distribution partners to bolster our existing network.

 

The Company has for some time been working to better integrate its VBAS with neuronavigation. The first phase of the modification of the existing VBAS product range was completed in September 2017 and has been well received by surgeons. The second phase involves the introduction of an optional Alignment Clip accessory that will snap onto the VBAS and allow for a neuronavigation pointer to be fully integrated into the body of the VBAS. This VBAS AC model range has received US FDA 510(k) clearance, EU clearance and is going through the regulatory process elsewhere internationally; it is envisaged that it will be available early in 2022. The Company will continue to work with neuronavigation companies to seek ways to further integrate the VBAS with neuronavigation and with other companies with complementary technologies used in neurosurgery. We will also be exploring with neurosurgeons and focus groups additional selected development work targeted at increasing the ease and applicability of our products to additional common procedures.

 

For NovaVision, given the company’s resources, and the large size and diversity of its end markets, we believe that the most efficient way to tackle the distribution of its broad range of patient and professional products is by partnering with entities in selected geographies that have either direct access to the end users or a desire and financial wherewithal to leverage the NovaVision therapy platform. As a result, the Company closed the NovaVision German office and entered into a license agreement with HelferApp, a cognitive therapy specialist, for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and is seeking similar partnerships in other territories with regional companies able to leverage NovaVision’s clinically supported vision therapies. Management is also open to a broad range of alternatives for NovaVision as a whole, which could comprise distribution and marketing partnerships, licensing, merger or sale.

COVID-19

 

Vycor Medical experienced a significant reduction in demand during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 in the US and Europe, particularly in the second quarter, with some recovery in the third and fourth quarters. This recovery continued at a stronger level during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 such that sales for the Vycor Medical division increased by 32% over the same period in 2020. Although neurosurgery is not considered an elective procedure, general hospital dislocation and diversion of resources away from non-emergency surgeries, or surgeries that can be postponed for a short period without harm, has impacted our revenues during the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and although this has recovered during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, COVID-19 remains classified as a pandemic and this could impact future sales. In addition, sales and marketing efforts by Vycor’s representatives were disrupted or curtailed during periods of lockdown and social distancing, and this may continue to hinder the recovery of revenues, particularly in certain international territories where vaccination rates remain relatively low. While our operations are principally located in the United States, and our sub-contract manufacturers are located in the United States, we participate in a global supply chain, and COVID-19 may impact our ability to conduct normal business operations, which could adversely affect our results of operations and liquidity. Furthermore, our sub-contract manufacturers have experienced, and continue to experience staffing shortages and this has elongated our production lead times. Disruptions to our supply chain and business operations, or to our suppliers’ or customers’ supply chains and business operations, could include disruptions from supplier staff absences due to COVID-19 illness or isolation requirements, the closure of supplier and manufacturer facilities, interruptions in the supply of raw materials and components, or restrictions on the shipment of our or our suppliers’ or customers’ products, any of which could have adverse ripple effects on our manufacturing output and delivery schedule. Although we have implemented business continuity plans for our offices and personnel to enable continuity of service remotely if required, if a critical number of our employees become too ill to work, or we are not able to access a sufficient quantity of our inventory for shipment due to enforced office closures, our production ability could be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Similarly, if our customers experience adverse business consequences due to COVID-19, or any other, pandemic, demand for our products could also be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Global health concerns, such as COVID-19, could also result in social, economic, and labor instability in the countries and localities in which we or our suppliers and customers operate. Any of these uncertainties could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

The adjustments to reconcile net loss to cash of $226,820 in the period have no impact on liquidity. The negative change in Net loss adjusted for non-cash items of $221,020 was primarily due to the increase in sales as a result of recovery from the impact of COVID-19 on the Vycor division and results from the Company’s strategic initiatives. At December 31, 2019 there had been an increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities mainly due to expenditure on regulatory for the transition to a new EU Notified Body, and regulatory and testing for the VBAS development occurring during the fourth quarter of 2019. The change in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $247,353 between the 2021 and 2020 periods was mainly due to the settlement of these accounts during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

 

Additional inventory of $127,313 was purchased during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 as part of normal production, and the Company anticipates purchasing additional new inventory of approximately $80,000 during the next twelve months for VBAS and VBAS AC. In January 2021 the Company received FDA 510(k) clearance for its new VBAS AC model range, and in April 2021 received EU clearance. The VBAS AC provides significantly greater integration with IGS by enabling an IGS pointer to be held securely within the device.

 

Investing Activities. Cash used in investing activities of continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $38,690, which primarily reflected expenditure on the completion of VBAS AC.

 

Financing Activities. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021 the Company received funds of $10,000 in respect of loans from Fountainhead. The Company also received a second loan of $58,600 during the period pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under Division A, Title I of the CARES Act. Both loans received under the Paycheck Protection Program were forgiven in August 2021 and have resulted in an extinguishment of debt for $117,200.

 

Liquidity and Plan of Operations, Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has incurred losses since its inception, including a net loss of $248,600 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and has not generated sufficient positive cash flows from operations. As of September 30, 2021 the Company had a working capital deficiency of $503,812, excluding related party liabilities of $2,041,079. These conditions, among others, raise substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

As described earlier in this ITEM 2 “Strategy”, The Company is continuing to execute on a plan to achieve revenue growth and a reduction in annual cash operating losses2 and generated a cash operating profit2 during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. For Vycor Medical this plan includes: increasing market penetration in the US; increasing international growth in territories where we are not represented or under-represented and continued new product development. In the US the Company is focused on increasing market penetration through targeting neurosurgeons systematically, both through its distribution network and also directly by leveraging existing KOL neurosurgeon VBAS supporters in each territory to access new neurosurgeon users. The Company continues to target key international territories including Europe where it intends to drive adoption of its VBAS product through selected key KOL neurosurgeon VBAS users to identify both new potential users and also high quality distribution partners to bolster our existing network. The Company has for some time been working to better integrate its VBAS with neuronavigation. The first phase of the modification of the existing VBAS product range was completed in September 2017 and has been well received by surgeons. The second phase involves the introduction of an optional Alignment Clip accessory that will snap onto the VBAS and allow for a neuronavigation pointer to be fully integrated into the body of the VBAS. This VBAS AC model range has received US FDA 510(k) clearance, EU clearance and is going through the regulatory process elsewhere internationally; it is envisaged that it will be available early in 2022. The Company will continue to work with neuronavigation companies to seek ways to further integrate the VBAS with neuronavigation and with other companies with complementary technologies used in neurosurgery. We will also be exploring with neurosurgeons and focus groups additional selected development work targeted at increasing the ease and applicability of our products to additional common procedures. For NovaVision, given the company’s resources, and the large size and diversity of its end markets, we believe that the most efficient way to tackle the distribution of its broad range of patient and professional products is by partnering with entities in selected geographies that have either direct access to the end users or a desire and financial wherewithal to leverage the NovaVision therapy platform. As a result, the Company closed the NovaVision German office and entered into a license agreement with HelferApp, a cognitive therapy specialist, for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and is seeking similar partnerships in other territories with regional companies able to leverage NovaVision’s clinically supported vision therapies. Management is also open to a broad range of alternatives for NovaVision as a whole, which could comprise distribution and marketing partnerships, licensing, merger or sale.

However, the Company believes it may not have sufficient cash to meet its various cash needs through November 30, 2022 unless the Company is able to obtain additional cash from the issuance of debt or equity securities. Included within the working capital deficiency above is a term note for $300,000 to EuroAmerican Investment Corp. (“EuroAmerican”), together with accrued interest of $364,798, which has a maturity date of March 31, 2022, having been extended on a number of occasions from its initial due date of June 11, 2011. At this time, it is not known whether any further extension of the note beyond March 31, 2022 will be available. Fountainhead, the Company’s largest shareholder, has provided working capital funding to the Company on an as-needed basis, although there is no guarantee that this will continue to be the case. The Company may consider seeking additional equity or debt funding, although there is no assurance that this would be available on acceptable terms or at all. If adequate funds are not available, the Company may have to delay or curtail development or commercialization of products, or cease some of its operations.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Uses of estimates in the preparation of financial statements

 

The preparation of unaudited consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the unaudited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimated. To the extent management’s estimates prove to be incorrect, financial results for future periods may be adversely affected. Significant estimates and assumptions contained in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include management’s estimate of the allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable, amortization of intangible assets, and the fair values of options and warrant included in the determination of debt discounts and stock-based compensation.

 

A detailed description of our significant accounting policies can be found in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Not applicable

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a) Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We are required to maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer (also our principal executive officer) and our chief financial officer (also our principal financial and accounting officer) to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

The Company’s management, including our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), have evaluated the effectiveness of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Exchange Act), as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, our CEO and our CFO have concluded that a material weakness occurred as of April 1, 2021 with the resignation of the independent members of the Company’s Audit Committee as of that date. Effective that date, our disclosure and controls were no longer effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports its files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its CEO and its CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

The matter involving internal controls and procedures that our management considered to be material weaknesses under the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board were a lack of a functioning audit committee with independent members, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures. This weakness occurred as of April 1, 2021 due to the resignation of the independent members of the Audit Committee from the Board of Directors effective as of April 1, 2021.

 

Management believes that the material weakness set forth did not have an effect on our financial results. However, management believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee and the lack of a majority of outside directors on our board of directors, results in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures, which could result in a material misstatement in our financial statements in future periods.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls

 

Effective April 1, 2021, the independent members of the Audit Committee resigned from the Board of Directors. There have been no other changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal period to which this report relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

The Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, does not expect that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree or compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
