NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

 

April 30, 2021

 

The following (a) condensed consolidated balance sheet at July 31, 2020 was derived from audited annual financial statements, but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the annual financial statements, and (b) the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements included herein have been prepared by Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc. (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company” or “NIMS”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to the quarterly report on Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These statements reflect adjustments, all of which are of a normal, recurring nature, and which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of April 30, 2021, and results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods ended April 30, 2021 and 2020. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021, are not necessarily indicative of the results for a full year. Certain information and footnote disclosure normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The Company’s accounting policies continue unchanged from July 31, 2020. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2020.

 

1. ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

Organization. Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc., a Florida corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company” or “NIMS”). The Company previously developed and marketed its Exer-Rest® line of acceleration therapeutic platforms based upon unique, patented whole body periodic acceleration (“WBPA”) technology of which the Company maintains patents. The Company maintains limited administration, but does not have any operations or inventory.

 

Business. The Company is currently a shell company (as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act).

 

Discontinued Operations. On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged inventory for forgiveness of accrued unpaid rent. The Company has no inventory, no immediate plans to replenish inventory and has no current plans to develop or market new products.

 

Accordingly, the Company determined that the assets and liabilities met the discontinued operations criteria in Accounting Standards Codification 205-20-45 and were classified as discontinued operations at April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020 and for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020.

Going Concern. The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared and presented on a basis assuming it will continue as a going concern. As reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had net losses from continuing operations of approximately $127,000 and $139,000 for the nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and has experienced continuous cash outflows from operating activities. The Company also has an accumulated deficit of approximately $28,331,000 as of April 30, 2021. The Company had approximately $61,000 of cash at April 30, 2021 and working capital deficit of approximately ($209,000). These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company is seeking potential mergers, acquisitions and strategic collaborations. The Company is also exploring obtaining a promissory note. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in this regard, and, if not successful, that it will be able to continue its business. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Equity Exchange Agreement. On December 3, 2018, the Company entered into an Equity Exchange Agreement with IRA Financial Trust Company, a South Dakota trust corporation, IRA Financial Group LLC, a Florida limited liability company (collectively “IRA Financial”), and their respective equity holders. The Company, IRA Financial and the equity holders subsequently amended the Exchange Agreement on three occasions to extend the outside date for consummation of the Exchange, with the last such extension expiring on July 3, 2019.

 

On August 4, 2019, IRAFG delivered to the Company notice of termination of the Exchange Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(b)(i) of that agreement due to the failure of the Exchange to have closed on or prior to the Outside Date. No termination fees, penalties or other amounts are payable by the Company in respect of such termination.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems of Florida, Inc., which has no current operations, and NIMS of Canada, Inc., a Canadian corporation, which has no current operations. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Discontinued Operations. For the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, results from operations for our Exer-Rest Business are classified as discontinued operations. The carve out of the discontinued operations (i) were prepared in accordance with the SEC’s carve out rules under Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) Topic 1B1 and (ii) are derived from identifying and carving out the specific assets, liabilities, operating expenses and interest expense associated with the Exer-Rest Business’s operations.

 

Discontinued operations expense allocations, consisting of warehouse rent and other inventory related expenses incurred by us, are directly attributed to discontinued operations (see Note 3).

 

Use of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions, such as accrued expenses and deferred taxes as estimates, that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents. The Company considers all highly liquid short-term investments purchased with an original maturity date of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company had approximately $62,000 and $203,000, on deposit in bank operating accounts at April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020, respectively. At April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

Income Taxes. The Company provides for income taxes using an asset and liability-based approach. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial statement and income tax purposes. The deferred tax asset for loss carryforwards and other potential future tax benefits has been fully offset by a valuation allowance since it is uncertain whether any future benefit will be realized. The utilization of the loss carryforward is limited to future taxable earnings of the Company and may be subject to severe limitations if the Company undergoes an ownership change pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code Section 382. Tax years ranging from 2016 to 2020 remain open to examination by various taxing jurisdictions as the statute of limitations has not expired.

 

8

 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments. Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments such as cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair values because they are short term in nature or they bear current market interest rates.

 

Loss Contingencies. We recognize contingent losses that are both probable and estimable. In this context, we define probability as circumstances under which events are likely to occur. In regard to legal costs, we record such costs as incurred.

 

Related Parties. The Company follows ASC 850 “Related Party Disclosures,” for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all relevant Accounting Standard Updates (“ASU’s”). Our conclusion was that they did not have any material effect on the consolidated financial statements.

3. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged its inventory for forgiveness of accrued unpaid rent. Concurrent with the inventory exchange, management with the appropriate level of authority determined to discontinue the operations of the product segment.

 

The detail of the consolidated balance sheets, the consolidated statement of operations and cash flows for the discontinued operations is as stated below (in thousands):

4. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

The Company has a single class of Preferred Stock. Holders of Series B Preferred Stock are entitled to vote with the holders of common stock as a single class on all matters.

 

Series B Preferred Stock is not redeemable by the Company and has a liquidation value of $100 per share, plus declared and unpaid dividends, if any. Dividends are non-cumulative, and are at the rate of $10 per share, if declared.

 

No preferred stock dividends were declared for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

The Company did not issue any shares of the Company’s common stock during the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

5. BASIC AND DILUTED LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed giving effect to all dilutive potential common shares that were outstanding during the period. Diluted potential common shares consist of incremental shares issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants and conversion of preferred stock. In computing diluted net loss per share for the periods ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, no dilution adjustment has been made to the weighted average outstanding common shares because the assumed conversion of preferred stock would be anti-dilutive.

6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Dr. Hsiao, Dr. Frost and directors Steven Rubin and Rao Uppaluri are each stockholders, current or former officers and/or directors or former directors of TransEnterix, Inc. (formerly SafeStitch Medical, Inc.) (“TransEnterix”), a publicly-traded medical device company. The Company’s Chief Financial Officer also served as the Chief Financial Officer of TransEnterix until March 3, 2014, during which he supervised the Miami based accounting staff of TransEnterix under a cost sharing arrangement whereby the total salaries of the Miami based accounting staff was shared by the Company and TransEnterix. The Chief Financial Officer continues to serve as the Chief Financial Officer of Cocrystal Pharma, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company, and in which Steve Rubin, serves on the Board. Since December 2009, the Company’s Chief Legal Officer has served under a similar cost sharing arrangement as the Chief Legal Officer of TransEnterix. The Company expensed $1,200 during the three months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020 and $3,600 during the nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020 under the cost sharing arrangement. At April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020, the Company had an accounts payable liability of $400 and $400 under the cost sharing arrangement, respectively.

 

The Company signed a five year lease for office space in Miami, Florida with a company controlled by Dr. Phillip Frost, who is the beneficial owner of more than 10% of the Company’s common stock. The rental payments under the Miami office lease, which commenced January 1, 2008 and expired on December 31, 2012, were approximately $1,250 per month and then continued on a month-to-month basis. In February 2016 the rent was reduced to $0 per month. For the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not record any rent expense related to the Miami lease. At April 30, 2021 and July 31, 2020 there was no rent payable.

 

The Company is under common control with multiple entities and the existence of that control could result in operating results or financial position of each individual entity significantly different from those that would have been obtained if the entities were autonomous. One of those related parties, OPKO Health, Inc. (“OPKO”) and the Company are under common control and OPKO has a one percent ownership interest in the Company that OPKO has accounted for as an equity method investment due to the ability to significantly influence the Company.

7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Leases.

 

The Company was under an operating lease agreement for our corporate office space that expired in 2012. The lease currently continues on a month to month basis at no cost.

 

COVID-19.

 

Current economic conditions with COVID-19 have been, and continue to be, volatile and continued instability in these market conditions may limit our ability to access the capital necessary to fund and grow our business and to replace, in a timely manner, maturing liabilities or to successfully examine strategic alternatives. Quarantines would make our ability to look for strategic alternatives more difficult and prospects of borrowing or equity raises would be more challenging. Additionally, the sales of equity or convertible debt securities may result in dilution to our stockholders.

 

Product Development and Supply Agreement.

 

In September 2007, the Company entered into a Product Development and Supply Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Sing Lin Technologies Co. Ltd., a company based in Taichung, Taiwan (“Sing Lin”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company consigned to Sing Lin the development and design of the next generation Exer-Rest and related devices. The Agreement commenced as of September 3, 2007 and had a term that extended three years from the acceptance by NIMS of the first run of production units. Thereafter, the Agreement automatically renewed for successive one year terms unless either party sent the other a notice of non-renewal. Either party was permitted to terminate the Agreement with ninety days prior written notice. Upon termination, each party’s obligations under the Agreement were to be limited to obligations related to confirmed orders placed prior to the termination date.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, Sing Lin designed, developed and manufactured the tooling required to manufacture the acceleration therapeutic platforms for a total cost to the Company of $471,000. Sing Lin utilized the tooling in the performance of its production obligations under the Agreement. The Company paid Sing Lin $150,000 of the tooling cost upon execution of the Agreement and $150,000 upon the Company’s approval of the product prototype concepts and designs. The balance of the final tooling cost became due and payable in September 2008 upon acceptance of the first units produced using the tooling, and was paid in full during the year ended July 31, 2009.

 

Under the now-terminated Agreement, the Company also granted Sing Lin the exclusive distribution rights for the products in certain countries in the Far East, including Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia and certain other countries. Sing Lin agreed not to sell the Products outside its geographic areas in the Far East.

 

The Agreement provided for the Company to purchase approximately $2.6 million of Exer-Rest units within one year of the September 2008 acceptance of the final product. The Agreement further provided for the Company to purchase $4.1 million and $8.8 million of Exer-Rest products in the second and third years following such acceptance, respectively. These minimum purchase amounts were based upon 2007 product costs multiplied by volume commitments. Through April 30, 2021, the Company had paid Sing Lin $1.7 million in connection with orders placed through that date. As of April 30, 2021, the Company has approximately $41,000 of payables due to Sing Lin. As of April 30, 2021, aggregate minimum future purchases under the Agreement totaled approximately $13.9 million.

 

As of April 30, 2021, the Company had not placed orders sufficient to meet the purchase obligations under the Agreement. The Company notified Sing Lin in June 2010 that it was terminating the Agreement effective September 2010, and Sing Lin in July 2010 demanded that the Company place orders sufficient to fulfill the three year minimum purchase obligations in the Agreement. As of the date of this filing, Sing Lin has not followed up on its July 2010 demand. There can be no assurance that Sing Lin will not attempt to enforce its remedies under the Agreement, or pursue other potential remedies. The Company believes that Sing Lin in no longer in business.

Overview

 

We previously were engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of non-invasive, whole body periodic acceleration (“WBPA”) therapeutic platforms, which are motorized platforms that move a subject repetitively head to foot. The Company discontinued operations in May 2019, accordingly, certain assets, liabilities and expenses are classified as discontinued operations.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. A more detailed discussion on the application of these and other accounting policies can be found in Note 2 in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. While we believe that the factors we evaluate provide us with a meaningful basis for establishing and applying sound accounting policies, we cannot guarantee that the results will always be accurate. Since the determination of these estimates requires the exercise of judgment, actual results could differ from such estimates.

Results of Operations

 

We have discontinued operations in May 2019. The Company is assessing potential mergers, acquisitions and strategic collaborations.

 

Three and Nine months ended April 30, 2021 Compared to Three and Nine months Ended April 30, 2020

 

General and administrative costs and expenses from continuing operations. General and administrative (“G&A”) costs and expenses from continuing operations were $29,000 and $127,000 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021, respectively, as compared to $40,000 and $139,000 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2020, respectively. The $11,000 and $12,000 decrease for the three and nine months was primarily due to reduced legal and professional services.

 

Total operating costs and expenses from continuing operations. Total operating costs and expenses were $29,000 and $127,000 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021, respectively, as compared to $40,000 and $139,000 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2020, respectively. The $11,000 and $12,000 decrease for the three and nine months are explained above in G&A.

 

Gain from discontinuing operations. Gain from discontinuing operations was $0 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2021 as compared to a gain of $0 and $1,000 for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2020, respectively. The $1,000 decrease was primarily due to winding down of operations.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s operations have been primarily financed through private sales of its equity securities and advances under Credit Facility and Promissory Notes. At April 30, 2021, we had approximately $61,000 of cash and working capital deficit of approximately ($209,000).

 

We expect to incur losses from operations for the foreseeable future. We do not have any revenue generating activities. It is likely that we will be required to obtain additional external financing through public or private equity offerings, debt financings or collaborative agreements to continue operations. No assurance can be given that such additional financing will be available on acceptable terms or at all.

 

Current economic conditions with COVID-19 have been, and continue to be, volatile and continued instability in these market conditions may limit our ability to access the capital necessary to fund and grow our business and to replace, in a timely manner, maturing liabilities or to successfully examine strategic alternatives. Additionally, the sales of equity or convertible debt securities may result in dilution to our stockholders.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $142,000 and $140,000 for nine months ended April 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. This $2,000 increase was primarily due to reduction of accounts payable during the nine months ended April 30, 2021 as compared to the nine months ended April 30, 2020.

 

ITEM 3.QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

Not required for smaller reporting companies as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act.

 

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

The Company’s management, with the participation of its Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e)) as of January 31, 2021. Based upon that evaluation, the Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of that date, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the material weakness identified below.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. In its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of April 30, 2021, the Company determined that there were control deficiencies that constituted material weaknesses, as described below.

 

Prepaid expenses, accounts payable and expenses – We have experienced a rapid decline in our business including transaction frequency and amounts as compared to prior periods. While we have continued to execute our internal controls, they were not modified from prior periods to operate at the appropriate level of precision to match the current size of our business. Due to this improper level of precision, our controls were ineffective at detecting expenses improperly recorded and classified within our accounting records.

 

Accordingly, the Company concluded that these control deficiencies resulted in a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the Company’s internal controls.

 

As a result of the material weaknesses described above, management has concluded that the Company did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of April 30, 2021 based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”).

 

Notwithstanding the existence of these material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, the Company’s management believes that the consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q fairly present in all material respects the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Remedial Actions to Address Material Weaknesses

 

Management has actively implemented a remediation plan to ensure that control deficiencies contributing to the material weakness are remediated such that these controls will operate effectively. Consistent with the remediation plan we have conducted internal control training to address the lower levels of materiality in order to maintain internal control effectively against a material weakness as first reported in Item 9A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2020.

 

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 of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
