NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Avalon GloboCare Corp. (the “Company” or “AVCO”) is a Delaware corporation. The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on July 28, 2014. On October 19, 2016, the Company entered into and closed a Share Exchange Agreement with the shareholders of Avalon Healthcare System, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“AHS”), each of which were accredited investors (“AHS Shareholders”) pursuant to which we acquired 100% of the outstanding securities of AHS in exchange for 50,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “AHS Acquisition”). AHS was incorporated on May 18, 2015 under the laws of the State of Delaware.

 

For accounting purposes, AHS was the surviving entity. The transaction was accounted for as a recapitalization of AHS pursuant to which AHS was treated as the accounting acquirer, surviving and continuing entity although the Company is the legal acquirer. The Company did not recognize goodwill or any intangible assets in connection with this transaction. Accordingly, the Company’s historical financial statements are those of AHS and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Avalon (Shanghai) Healthcare Technology Co., Ltd. (“Avalon Shanghai”) immediately following the consummation of this reverse merger transaction. AHS owns 100% of the capital stock of Avalon Shanghai, which is a wholly foreign-owned enterprise organized under the laws of the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”). Avalon Shanghai was incorporated on April 29, 2016 and is engaged in medical related consulting services for customers.

On January 23, 2017, the Company incorporated Avalon (BVI) Ltd., a British Virgin Island company. There was no activity for the subsidiary since its incorporation through June 30, 2020. Avalon (BVI) Ltd. is dormant and is in process of being dissolved.

 

On February 7, 2017, the Company formed Avalon RT 9 Properties, LLC (“Avalon RT 9”), a New Jersey limited liability company. On May 5, 2017, Avalon RT 9 purchased a real property located in Township of Freehold, County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey, having a street address of 4400 Route 9 South, Freehold, NJ 07728. This property was purchased to serve as the Company’s world-wide headquarters for all corporate administration and operations. In addition, the property generates rental income. Avalon RT 9 owns this office building. Currently, Avalon RT 9’s business consists of the ownership and operation of the income-producing real estate property in New Jersey. As of June 30, 2020, the occupancy rate of the building is 93.4%.

 

On July 31, 2017, the Company formed Genexosome Technologies Inc. (“Genexosome”) in Nevada.

 

On July 18, 2018, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Avactis Biosciences Inc., a Nevada corporation, which will focus on accelerating commercial activities related to cellular therapies, including regenerative medicine with stem/progenitor cells as well as cellular immunotherapy including CAR-T, CAR-NK, TCR-T and others.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) and disclosures necessary for a fair presentation of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been included. The results reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for any interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be reported for the entire year. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and do not include all information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 6, 2020.

NOTE 2 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND GOING CONCERN CONDITION (continued)

 

Going Concern

 

The Company is a clinical-stage, vertically-integrated, leading CellTech bio-developer dedicated to advancing and empowering innovative, transformative immune effector cell therapy, exosome technology, as well as COVID-19 related diagnostics and therapeutics. The Company also provides strategic advisory and outsourcing services to facilitate and enhance its clients’ growth and development, as well as competitiveness in healthcare and CellTech industry markets.  The Company also develops related products for sale and licensure in the United States and the Peoples Republic of China. In addition, the Company owns commercial real estate that houses its headquarters in Freehold, New Jersey. The Company did not generate any revenue from medical related consulting services segment and development services and sales of developed products segment during the first half of 2020. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

As reflected in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $35,689,100 at June 30, 2020, and has incurred recurring net loss and negative cash flow from operating activities of $6,327,163 and $3,924,902 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. The Company has a limited operating history and its continued growth is dependent upon the re-commencing of medical consulting services which was completed in December 2019 to its only few clients who are related parties and generating rental revenue from its income-producing real estate property in New Jersey and performing development services for hospitals and other customers and sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers; hence generating revenues, and obtaining additional financing to fund future obligations and pay liabilities arising from normal business operations. In addition, the current cash balance cannot be projected to cover the operating expenses for the next twelve months from the release date of this report. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise additional capital, implement its business plan, and generate significant revenues. There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in its efforts to generate significant revenues, maintain sufficient cash balance or report profitable operations or to continue as a going concern. The Company plans on raising capital through the sale of equity to implement its business plan. However, there is no assurance these plans will be realized and that any additional financings will be available to the Company on satisfactory terms and conditions, if any.

 

The occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic had negatively impact on the Company’s operations. Some tenants have delayed on rent payment. Our general development operations have continued during the COVID-19 pandemic and we have not had significant disruption. However, we are uncertain if the COVID-19 pandemic will impact future operations at our laboratory, or our ability to collaborate with other laboratories and universities. In addition, we are unsure if the COVID-19 pandemic will impact future clinical trials. Given the dynamic nature of these circumstances, the duration of business disruption and reduced traffic, the related financial effect cannot be reasonably estimated at this time but is expected to adversely impact the Company’s business for the year of 2020.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability or classification of asset-carrying amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management 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 and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Significant estimates during the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 include the allowance for doubtful accounts, the useful life of property and equipment and investment in real estate, assumptions used in assessing impairment of long-term assets, valuation of deferred tax assets and the associated valuation allowances, and valuation of stock-based compensation.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company adopted the guidance of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 for fair value measurements which clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities available at the measurement date.

 

Level 2-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3-Inputs are unobservable inputs which reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions on what assumptions the market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on the best available information.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets for cash, rent receivable, deferred financing costs, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accrued liabilities and other payables, accrued liabilities and other payables – related parties, operating lease obligation, tenants’ security deposit, approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments”, allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value (fair value option). The fair value option may be elected on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is irrevocable, unless a new election date occurs. If the fair value option is elected for an instrument, unrealized gains and losses for that instrument should be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date. The Company did not elect to apply the fair value option to any outstanding instruments.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

A portion of the Company’s cash is maintained with state-owned banks within the PRC. Balances at state-owned banks within the PRC are covered by insurance up to RMB 500,000 (approximately $71,000) per bank. Any balance over RMB 500,000 per bank in PRC will not be covered. At June 30, 2020, cash balances held in the PRC are RMB 1,833,866 (approximately $260,000), of which, RMB 1,312,028 (approximately $186,000) was not covered by such limited insurance. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any risks on its cash in bank accounts.

 

The Company maintains a portion of its cash in bank and financial institution deposits within U.S. that at times may exceed federally-insured limits of $250,000. The Company manages this credit risk by concentrating its cash balances in high quality financial institutions and by periodically evaluating the credit quality of the primary financial institutions holding such deposits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such bank accounts and believes it is not exposed to any risks on its cash in bank accounts. At June 30, 2020, the Company’s cash balances in United States bank accounts had approximately $353,000 in excess of the federally-insured limits.

 

At June 30, 2020, the Company’s cash balances by geographic area were as follows:

 

Country:  June 30, 2020 
United States  $989,549    79.2%
China   259,552    20.8%
Total cash  $1,249,101    100.0%

 

For purposes of the consolidated statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased and money market accounts to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

Currently, a portion of the Company’s operations are carried out in PRC. Accordingly, the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environment in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC’s economy. The Company’s operations in PRC are subject to specific considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America. The Company’s results may be adversely affected by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion and remittance abroad, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things.

 

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of trade accounts receivable. A portion of the Company’s sales are credit sales which is to the customer whose ability to pay is dependent upon the industry economics prevailing in these areas; however, concentrations of credit risk with respect to trade accounts receivable is limited due to generally short payment terms. The Company also performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers to help further reduce credit risk.

 

Investment in Unconsolidated Company – Epicon Biosciences Co., Ltd.

 

The Company uses the equity method of accounting for its investment in, and earning or loss of, company that it does not control but over which it does exert significant influence. The Company considers whether the fair value of its equity method investment has declined below its carrying value whenever adverse events or changes in circumstances indicate that recorded value may not be recoverable. If the Company considers any decline to be other than temporary (based on various factors, including historical financial results and the overall health of the investee), then a write-down would be recorded to estimated fair value. See Note 5 for discussion of equity method investment.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). The core principle of this new revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

  Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer
     
  Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract
     
  Step 3: Determine the transaction price
     
  Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
     
  Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation

 

In order to identify the performance obligations in a contract with a customer, a company must assess the promised goods or services in the contract and identify each promised goods or service that is distinct. A performance obligation meets ASC 606’s definition of a “distinct” goods or service (or bundle of goods or services) if both of the following criteria are met:

 

The customer can benefit from the good or service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available to the customer (i.e., the good or service is capable of being distinct).

 

The entity’s promise to transfer the good or service to the customer is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract (i.e., the promise to transfer the good or service is distinct within the context of the contract).

 

If a goods or service is not distinct, the goods or service is combined with other promised goods or services until a bundle of goods or services is identified that is distinct.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Revenue Recognition (continued)

 

The transaction price is the amount of consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring promised goods or services to a customer, excluding amounts collected on behalf of third parties (for example, some sales taxes). The consideration promised in a contract with a customer may include fixed amounts, variable amounts, or both. Variable consideration is included in the transaction price only to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved.

 

The transaction price is allocated to each performance obligation on a relative standalone selling price basis. The transaction price allocated to each performance obligation is recognized when that performance obligation is satisfied, at a point in time or over time as appropriate.

 

Types of revenue:

 

Service fees under consulting agreements with related parties to provide medical related consulting services to its clients. The Company is paid for its services by its clients pursuant to the terms of the written consulting agreements. Each contract calls for a fixed payment.

 

Service fees under agreements to perform development services for hospitals and other customers. The Company does not perform contracts that are contingent upon successful results.

 

Sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers.

 

Revenue recognition criteria:

 

The Company recognizes revenue by providing medical related consulting services under written service contracts with its customers. Revenue related to its service offerings is recognized as the services are performed.

 

Revenue from development services performed under written contracts is recognized as services are provided.

 

Revenue from sales of developed items to hospitals and other customers is recognized when items are shipped to customers and titles are transferred.

 

The Company has determined that the ASC 606 does not apply to rental contracts, which are within the scope of other revenue recognition accounting standards.

 

Rental income from operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis under the guidance of ASC 842. Lease payments under tenant leases are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the related leases. The cumulative difference between lease revenue recognized under the straight-line method and contractual lease payments are included in rent receivable on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

The Company does not offer promotional payments, customer coupons, rebates or other cash redemption offers to its customers.

 

Per Share Data

 

ASC Topic 260 “Earnings per Share,” requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic EPS computation to the numerator and denominator of the diluted EPS computation. Basic EPS excludes dilution. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the entity.

Per Share Data (continued)

 

Basic net loss per share are computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period. Potentially dilutive common shares consist of the common shares issuable upon the exercise of common stock options and warrants (using the treasury stock method). Common stock equivalents are not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share if their effect would be anti-dilutive. In a period in which the Company has a net loss, all potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding as they would have had an anti-dilutive impact.

 

The following table summarizes the securities that were excluded from the diluted per share calculation because the effect of including these potential shares was antidilutive:

 

   Three Months Ended
June 30,
   Six Months Ended
June 30,
 
   2020   2019   2020   2019

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. The objective of ASU 2018-13 is to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to the financial statements by removing, modifying, and adding certain fair value disclosure requirements to facilitate clear communication of the information required by generally accepted accounting principles. The amendments are effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019 with early adoption permitted upon issuance of this ASU. The adoption of ASU 2018 – 13 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (“Topic 326”). The ASU introduces a new accounting model, the Current Expected Credit Losses model (“CECL”), which requires earlier recognition of credit losses and additional disclosures related to credit risk. The CECL model utilizes a lifetime expected credit loss measurement objective for the recognition of credit losses at the time the financial asset is originated or acquired. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual period beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim reporting periods within those annual reporting periods. The Company expects that the adoption will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption. The Company does not discuss recent pronouncements that are not anticipated to have an impact on or are unrelated to its consolidated financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or disclosures.

NOTE 9 - STATUTORY RESERVE

 

Avalon Shanghai and Beijing Genexosome operate in the PRC, are required to reserve 10% of their net profit after income tax, as determined in accordance with the PRC accounting rules and regulations. Appropriation to the statutory reserve by the Company is based on profit arrived at under PRC accounting standards for business enterprises for each year.

 

The profit arrived at must be set off against any accumulated losses sustained by the Company in prior years, before allocation is made to the statutory reserve. Appropriation to the statutory reserve must be made before distribution of dividends to shareholders. The appropriation is required until the statutory reserve reaches 50% of the registered capital. This statutory reserve is not distributable in the form of cash dividends. The Company did not make any appropriation to statutory reserve for Avalon Shanghai and Beijing Genexosome during the six months ended June 30, 2020 as they incurred net losses in the period.

 

NOTE 10 – RESTRICTED NET ASSETS

 

A portion of the Company’s operations are conducted through its PRC subsidiaries, which can only pay dividends out of their retained earnings determined in accordance with the accounting standards and regulations in the PRC and after they have met the PRC requirements for appropriation to statutory reserve. In addition, a portion of the Company’s businesses and assets are denominated in RMB, which is not freely convertible into foreign currencies. All foreign exchange transactions take place either through the People’s Bank of China or other banks authorized to buy and sell foreign currencies at the exchange rates quoted by the People’s Bank of China. Approval of foreign currency payments by the People’s Bank of China or other regulatory institutions requires submitting a payment application form together with suppliers’ invoices, shipping documents and signed contracts. These currency exchange control procedures imposed by the PRC government authorities may restrict the ability of the Company’s PRC subsidiaries to transfer their net assets to the Parent Company through loans, advances or cash dividends.

 

Schedule I of Article 5-04 of Regulation S-X requires the condensed financial information of the parent company to be filed when the restricted net assets of consolidated subsidiaries exceed 25 percent of consolidated net assets as of the end of the most recently completed fiscal year. For purposes of this test, restricted net assets of consolidated subsidiaries shall mean that amount of the registrant’s proportionate share of net assets of its consolidated subsidiaries (after intercompany eliminations) which as of the end of the most recent fiscal year may not be transferred to the parent company in the form of loans, advances or cash dividends without the consent of a third party.

 

The Company’s PRC subsidiaries’ net assets as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 did not exceed 25% of the Company’s consolidated net assets. Accordingly, the Parent Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have not been required in accordance with Rule 5-04 and Rule 12-04 of SEC Regulation S-X.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes to those unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements that are included elsewhere in this report. Our discussion includes forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties, such as our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those set forth under the Risk Factors, Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Business sections in our Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 6, 2020. We use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements.

 

Impact of COVID-19 on our Operations, Financial Condition, Liquidity and Results of Operations

 

The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations is unknown and will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and any additional preventative and protective actions that governments, or us, may determine are needed.

 

The occurrence of COVID-19 pandemic had negatively impact on our operations. Some tenants have delayed on rent payment. Our general development operations have continued during the COVID-19 pandemic and we have not had significant disruption. However, we are uncertain if the COVID-19 pandemic will impact future operations at our laboratory, or our ability to collaborate with other laboratories and universities. In addition, we are unsure if the COVID-19 pandemic will impact future clinical trials. Given the dynamic nature of these circumstances, the duration of business disruption and reduced traffic, the related financial effect cannot be reasonably estimated at this time but is expected to adversely impact the Company’s business for the year of 2020.

 

We have limited cash available to fund planned operations and although we have other sources of capital described below under “Liquidity and Capital Resources,” management continues to pursue various financing alternatives to fund our operations so we can continue as a going concern. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has created significant economic uncertainty and volatility in the credit and capital markets. Management plans to secure the necessary financing through the issue of new equity and/or the entering into of strategic partnership arrangements but the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our ability to raise additional capital is unknown and will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak and new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. We may not be able to raise sufficient additional capital and may tailor our operations based on the amount of funding we are able to raise in the future. Nevertheless, there is no assurance that these initiatives will be successful. Further, there is no assurance that capital available to us in any future financing will be on acceptable terms.

 

Overview

 

We are a clinical-stage, vertically-integrated, leading CellTech bio-developer dedicated to advancing and empowering innovative, transformative immune effector cell therapy, exosome technology, as well as COVID-19 related diagnostics and therapeutics. We also provide strategic advisory and outsourcing services to facilitate and enhance our clients’ growth and development, as well as competitiveness in healthcare and CellTech industry markets.  Through our subsidiary structure with unique integration of verticals from innovative R&D to automated bioproduction and accelerated clinical development, we are establishing a leading role in the fields of cellular immunotherapy (including CAR-T/NK), exosome technology (ACTEXTM), and regenerative therapeutics. 

 

Avalon achieves and fosters seamless integration of unique verticals to bridge and accelerate innovative research, bio-process development, clinical programs and product commercialization. Avalon’s upstream innovative research includes:

 

  Co-development of Avalon Clinical-grade Tissue-specific Exosome (“ACTEXTM”) with Weill Cornell Medicine

 

  Novel therapeutic and diagnostic targets development utilizing QTY-code protein design technology with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

 

  Co-development of next generation, transposon-based, multi-target CAR-T, CAR-NK and other immune effector cell therapeutic modalities with Arbele Corp.

 

25

 

 

Avalon’s midstream bio-processing and bio-production facility is located in Nanjing, China with state-of-the-art, automated GMP and QC/QA infrastructure for standardized bio-manufacturing of clinical-grade cellular products involved in our clinical programs in immune effector cell therapy, regenerative therapeutics, as well as bio-banking.

 

Avalon’s downstream medical team and facility consists of top-rated affiliated hospital network and experts specialized in hematology, oncology, cellular immunotherapy, hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell transplant, as well as regenerative therapeutics. Our major clinical programs include: 

 

·AVA-001: Avalon has initiated its first-in-human clinical trial of CD19 CAR-T candidate, AVA-001 in August 2019 at the Hebei Yanda Lu Daopei Hospital and Beijing Lu Daopei Hospital in China (the world’s single largest CAR-T treatment network with over 600 patients being treated with CAR-T) for the indication of relapsed/refractory B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. The AVA-001 candidate (co-developed with China Immunotech Co. Ltd) is characterized by the utilization of 4-1BB (CD137) co-stimulatory signaling pathway, conferring a strong anti-cancer activity during pre-clinical study. It also features a shorter bio-manufacturing time which leads to advantage of prompt treatment to patients with these dreadful hematologic malignancies. Avalon has plans to recruit 20 patients (under registered clinical trial NCT03952923) for safety and efficacy studies.

 

·AVA-101: Avalon’s transposon-based, multi-targeted CAR-T candidate, AVA-101 (co-developed with Arbele Corp.) will enter pre-clinical process development and validation phase. AVA-101 features non-viral, transposon-engineered CAR-T with multiple anti-cancer targets, as well as possessing molecular safety-switch mechanism to minimize the side effects, such as cytokine release syndrome and neurotoxicity, often associated with conventional CAR-T cellular therapy. Following the pre-clinical process development and validation phase, Avalon anticipates that it intends to pursue first-in-human clinical study of this next generation of potentially more effective and safer CAR-T candidate.

 

·ACTEX™: Stem cell-derived Avalon Clinical-grade Tissue-specific Exosomes (ACTEX™) is one of the core technology platforms that has been co-developed by Avalon GloboCare and Weill Cornell Medicine. The Company formed a strategic partnership with HydroPeptide, LLC, a leading epigenetics skin care company, to engage in co-development and commercialization of a series of clinical-grade, exosome-based cosmeceutical and orthopedic products. As part of this agreement, the Company signed a three-way Material Transfer Agreement between Avalon GloboCare, HydroPeptide and Weill Cornell Medicine.

 

·FLASH-CAR™: The Company advanced its next generation immune cell therapy using FLASH-CAR™ technology co-developed with the Company’s strategic partner Arbele Limited. The adaptable FLASH-CAR™ platform can be used to create personalized cell therapy from a patient’s own cells, as well as off-the-shelf cell therapy from a universal donor. 

 

·AVA-Trap™: Avalon’s AVA-Trap™ therapeutic program plans to enter animal model testing followed by expedited clinical studies with the goal of providing an effective therapeutic option to combat COVID-19 and other life-threatening conditions involving cytokine storms. The Company initiated a sponsored research and co-development project with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) led by Professor Shuguang Zhang as Principal Investigator in May 2019. Using the unique QTY code protein design platform, six water-soluble variant cytokine receptors have been successfully designed and tested to show binding affinity to the respective cytokines.

 

We generated revenue by providing medical related consulting services in advanced areas of immunotherapy and second opinion/referral services through our wholly-owned subsidiary Avalon (Shanghai) Healthcare Technology Co., Ltd., or Avalon Shanghai. We also own and operate rental commercial real property in New Jersey, where we are headquartered. We discontinued sales of exosome isolation systems in China and the United States through our joint venture Genexosome Technologies, Inc. However, we are actively developing other unrelated proprietary exosome related products for sale or licensure.

  

The value of the Renminbi (“RMB”), the main currency used in China, fluctuates and is affected by, among other things, changes in China’s political and economic conditions. The conversion of RMB into foreign currencies such as the U.S. dollar have generally been based on rates set by the People’s Bank of China, which are set daily based on the previous day’s interbank foreign exchange market rates and current exchange rates on the world financial markets.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We continually evaluate our estimates, including those related to the allowance for doubtful accounts, the useful life of property and equipment and investment in real estate, assumptions used in assessing impairment of long-term assets, valuation of deferred tax assets and the associated valuation allowances, and valuation of stock-based compensation.

 

We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we 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. Any future changes to these estimates and assumptions could cause a material change to our reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). The core principle of this new revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer

 

Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract

 

Step 3: Determine the transaction price

 

Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract

 

Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation

 

In order to identify the performance obligations in a contract with a customer, a company must assess the promised goods or services in the contract and identify each promised goods or service that is distinct. A performance obligation meets ASC 606’s definition of a “distinct” goods or service (or bundle of goods or services) if both of the following criteria are met: 

 

The customer can benefit from the goods or service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available to the customer (i.e., the goods or service is capable of being distinct).

 

The entity’s promise to transfer the goods or service to the customer is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract (i.e., the promise to transfer the goods or service is distinct within the context of the contract).

 

If a goods or service is not distinct, the goods or service is combined with other promised goods or services until a bundle of goods or services is identified that is distinct.

 

The transaction price is the amount of consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring promised goods or services to a customer, excluding amounts collected on behalf of third parties (for example, some sales taxes). The consideration promised in a contract with a customer may include fixed amounts, variable amounts, or both. Variable consideration is included in the transaction price only to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved.

 

The transaction price is allocated to each performance obligation on a relative standalone selling price basis. The transaction price allocated to each performance obligation is recognized when that performance obligation is satisfied, at a point in time or over time as appropriate.

 

Types of revenue:

 

Service fees under consulting agreements with related parties to provide medical related consulting services to our clients. We are paid for our services by our clients pursuant to the terms of the written consulting agreements. Each contract calls for a fixed payment.

 

27

 

 

Service fees under agreements to perform development services for hospitals and other customers. We do not perform contracts that are contingent upon successful results.

 

Sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers.

 

Revenue recognition criteria:

 

We recognize revenue by providing medical related consulting services under written service contracts with our customers. Revenue related to our service offerings is recognized as the services are performed.

 

Revenue from development services performed under written contracts is recognized as services are provided.

 

Revenue from sales of developed items to hospitals and other customers is recognized when items are shipped to customers and titles are transferred.

 

We have determined that the ASC 606 does not apply to rental contracts, which are within the scope of other revenue recognition accounting standards.

 

Rental income from operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis under the guidance of ASC 842. Lease payments under tenant leases are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the related leases. The cumulative difference between lease revenue recognized under the straight-line method and contractual lease payments are included in rent receivable on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

We do not offer promotional payments, customer coupons, rebates or other cash redemption offers to our customers.

 

Income Taxes

 

We are governed by the income tax laws of China and the United States. Income taxes are accounted for pursuant to ASC 740 “Accounting for Income Taxes,” which is an asset and liability approach that requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our financial statements or tax returns. The charge for taxes is based on the results for the period as adjusted for items, which are non-assessable or disallowed. It is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date.

 

Deferred tax is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method in respect of temporary differences arising from differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax basis used in the computation of assessable tax profit. In principle, deferred tax liabilities are recognized for all taxable temporary differences, and deferred tax assets are recognized to the extent that it is probably that taxable profit will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilized.

 

Deferred tax is calculated using tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realized or the liability is settled. Deferred tax is charged or credited in the income statement, except when it is related to items credited or charged directly to equity, in which case the deferred tax is changed to equity. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when they related to income taxes levied by the same taxation authority and we intend to settle its current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 and 2019

 

Revenues

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, we had real property rental revenue of $301,267, as compared to $264,889 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $36,378, or 13.7%. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, we had real property rental revenue of $598,223, as compared to $531,515 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $66,708, or 12.6%. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase of tenants in the first half of 2020. We expect that our revenue from real property rent will remain in its current quarterly level with minimal decrease in the near future. We are unsure of the short and long term financial impact of COVID -19 on our ability to collect rental income or on our overall building occupancy rate.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we did not have any medical related consulting services revenue since there was no demand for our consulting service from our related parties and there was no order for our medical related consulting services from third party in the periods. Although we maintain close working relationships with our related parties, the consulting agreements with our related parties expired as of December 31, 2019. There was no order from related party and third party customers in the first half of 2020. Currently, we are negotiating with our potential customers and expect to enter consulting services agreements by the end of August 2020. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, we had medical related consulting services revenue from related parties of $111,434 and $125,694, respectively.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we did not have any revenue from contract services through performing development services for hospitals and other customers and sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, we had revenue from contract services through performing development services for hospitals and other customers and sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers of $23,404 and $26,682, respectively. Feedback received from our research partners is that our exosome isolation system does not produce consistent results and does not deliver high exosome yields and concentrations and needs revision. We have discontinued sales of our exosome isolation system product. However, we are actively developing other unrelated proprietary exosome related products for sale or licensure.

 

Costs and Expenses

 

Real property operating expenses consist of property management fees, property insurance, real estate taxes, depreciation, repairs and maintenance fees, utilities and other expenses related to our rental properties.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, our real property operating expenses amounted to $272,764, as compared to $192,676 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $80,088, or 41.6%. The increase was mainly due to an increase in electric utility of approximately $25,000, and an increase in other miscellaneous items of approximately $55,000.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, our real property operating expenses amounted to $527,265, as compared to $423,435 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $103,830, or 24.5%. The increase was mainly due to an increase in real property repairs and maintenance expenses of approximately $11,000, an increase in electric utility of approximately $15,000, and an increase in other miscellaneous items of approximately $78,000.

 

Costs of medical related consulting services include the cost of internal labor and related benefits, travel expenses related to medical related consulting services, subcontractor costs, other related consulting costs, and other overhead costs. Subcontractor costs were costs related to medical related consulting services incurred by our subcontractor, such as medical professional’s compensation and travel costs.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, costs of medical related consulting services amounted to $95,375 and $108,466, respectively. There were no comparative revenue and related costs of revenue from our medical related consulting services for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 since there was no demand for our consulting service from our related parties in the period and there was no order for our medical related consulting services from third party.

 

Costs of development services and sales of developed products include inventory costs, materials and supplies costs, internal labor and related benefits, depreciation, other overhead costs and shipping and handling costs incurred.

Real Property Operating Income

 

Our real property operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $28,503, representing a decrease of $43,710, or 60.5%, as compared to $72,213 for the three months ended June 30, 2019. Our real property operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $70,958, representing a decrease of $37,122, or 34.3%, as compared to $108,080 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease was mainly attributable to the increase in real property operating expenses, offset by the increase in rental revenue resulting from the increase of tenants as described above. We expect our real property operating income will remain in its current quarterly level with minimal increase in the near future. We are unsure of the short and long term financial impact of COVID -19 on our ability to collect rental income or on our overall building occupancy rate.

Professional fees primarily consisted of accounting fees, audit fees, legal service fees, consulting fees, investor relations service charges and other fees incurred for service related to being a public company. For the three months ended June 30, 2020, professional fees increased by $769,164, or 97.1%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. The increase was mainly attributable to an increase in consulting fees of approximately $642,000 mainly due to the increase in use of consulting service providers, and an increase in other miscellaneous items of approximately $127,000. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, professional fees increased by $854,636, or 37.8%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase was mainly attributable to an increase in an increase in legal services fee of approximately $479,000 which is primarily attributable to we intend to vigorously defend against legal action and pursue all available legal remedies as disclosed elsewhere in this report, an increase in consulting fees of approximately $150,000 mainly due to the increase in stock-based consulting fees, an increase in investor relations service charges of approximately $90,000 as a result of the increase in use of investor relations service providers, and an increase in other miscellaneous items of approximately $136,000. We expect that our professional fees will remain in its current quarterly level with minimal increase in the near future.

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, compensation and related benefits decreased by $1,046,126, or 49.8%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. The significant decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in stock-based compensation of approximately $1,060,000 which reflected the value of options granted and vested to our management. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, compensation and related benefits decreased by $2,017,813, or 48.0%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The significant decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in stock-based compensation of approximately $1,982,000 which reflected the value of options granted and vested to our management. We expect that our compensation and related benefits will remain at its current quarterly level in the rest of 2020.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, research and development expenses decreased by $788,610, or 83.0%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, research and development expenses decreased by $665,668, or 60.4%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. Our first project with Arbele was completed in January 2020 and no further research and development project was incurred in the first half of 2020. Our research and development contract with Weill Cornell Medicine expired as of November 2019 and expect to enter another agreement in the fourth quarter of 2020. Therefore, our research and development expenses in 2020 periods decreased as compared to the corresponding periods of 2019. We expect our research and development expenses will remain in its current quarterly level with minimal increase in the near future.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, advertising expenses decreased by $178,280 or 80.6% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, advertising expenses decreased by $351,977 or 75.6% as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to decreased advertising activities incurred as a result of stricter control on corporation spending. We expect that our advertising expenses will continue to decrease in the near future.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, amortization expense from intangible assets decreased by $81,893, or 100.0%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, amortization expense from intangible assets decreased by $163,786, or 100.0%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. At the end of September 2019, our intangible assets were impaired to zero and therefore, no amortization expense was recorded related to intangible assets in the first half of 2020.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, travel and entertainment expense decreased by $78,345, or 71.5%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, travel and entertainment expense decreased by $192,201, or 64.7%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease was mainly due to decreased business travel activities and decreased entertainment expenditure resulting from COVID-19. In the first half of 2020, the spread of COVID-19 has caused public health officials to recommend precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus, such as, cease traveling to non-essential jobs and curtail all unnecessary travel, and stay at home as much as possible.

 

Other general and administrative expenses mainly consisted of Directors and Officers Liability Insurance, NASDAQ listing fee, academic sponsorship, and other miscellaneous items. For the three months ended June 30, 2020, other general and administrative expenses increased by $11,776, or 7.0%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019, which was mainly due to an increase in Directors and Officers Liability Insurance premium of approximately $24,000, offset by a decrease in other miscellaneous items of approximately $12,000. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, other general and administrative expenses decreased by $66,178, or 16.2%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, which was mainly due to a decrease in academic sponsorship expenditure of approximately $95,000, offset by an increase in other miscellaneous items of approximately $29,000.

Income Taxes

 

We did not have any income taxes expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 since we incurred losses in the periods.

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the factors described above, our net loss was $3,056,382 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $4,438,823 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of $1,382,441 or 31.1%.

Foreign Currency Translation Adjustment

 

Our reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. The functional currency of our parent company, AHS, Avalon RT 9, Genexosome, Avactis, and Exosome, is the U.S. dollar and the functional currency of Avalon Shanghai and Beijing Genexosome, is the Chinese Renminbi (“RMB”). The financial statements of our subsidiaries whose functional currency is the RMB are translated to U.S. dollars using period end rates of exchange for assets and liabilities, average rate of exchange for revenues, costs, and expenses and cash flows, and at historical exchange rates for equity. Net gains and losses resulting from foreign exchange transactions are included in the results of operations. As a result of foreign currency translations, which are a non-cash adjustment, we reported a foreign currency translation gain of $3,309 and a foreign currency translation loss of $34,103 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As a result of foreign currency translations, which are a non-cash adjustment, we reported a foreign currency translation loss of $18,757 and a foreign currency translation gain of $9,379 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. This non-cash gain/loss had the effect of decreasing/increasing our reported comprehensive loss.

 

Comprehensive Loss

 

As a result of our foreign currency translation adjustment, we had comprehensive loss of $3,053,073 and $4,472,926 for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

As a result of our foreign currency translation adjustment, we had comprehensive loss of $6,345,920 and $8,934,373 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has a limited operating history and its continued growth is dependent upon the re-commencing of medical consulting services which was completed in December 2019 to its only few clients who are related parties and generating rental revenue from its income-producing real estate property in New Jersey and performing development services for hospitals and other customers and sales of developed products to hospitals and other customers; hence generating revenues, and obtaining additional financing to fund future obligations and pay liabilities arising from normal business operations. In addition, the current cash balance cannot be projected to cover the operating expenses for the next twelve months from the release date of this report. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise additional capital, implement its business plan, and generate significant revenues. There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in its efforts to generate significant revenues, maintain sufficient cash balance or report profitable operations or to continue as a going concern. The Company plans on raising capital through the sale of equity to implement its business plan. However, there is no assurance these plans will be realized and that any additional financings will be available to the Company on satisfactory terms and conditions, if any.

 

32

 

 

The occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to negatively affect the Company’s operations. Efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus have intensified, including social distancing, travel bans and quarantine, and these are likely to negatively impact our tenants, employees and consultants. These, in turn, will not only impact our operations, financial condition and demand for our medical related consulting services but our overall ability to react timely to mitigate the impact of this event. Given the dynamic nature of these circumstances, the duration of business disruption and reduced traffic, the related financial effect cannot be reasonably estimated at this time but is expected to adversely impact our business for the year of 2020.

 

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we had cash balance of approximately $1,249,000 and $765,000, respectively. These funds are kept in financial institutions located as follows:

 

 

June 30,

2020

  

December 31,

2019

 
Country:                    
United States  $989,549    79.2%  $371,929    48.6%
China   259,552    20.8%   392,962    51.4%
Total cash  $1,249,101    100.0%  $764,891    100.0%

 

Under applicable PRC regulations, foreign invested enterprises, or FIEs, in China may pay dividends only out of their accumulated profits, if any, determined in accordance with PRC accounting standards and regulations. In addition, a foreign invested enterprise in China is required to set aside at least 10% of its after-tax profit based on PRC accounting standards each year to its general reserves until the cumulative amount of such reserves reach 50% of its registered capital. These reserves are not distributable as cash dividends.

 

In addition, a portion of our businesses and assets are denominated in RMB, which is not freely convertible into foreign currencies. All foreign exchange transactions take place either through the People’s Bank of China or other banks authorized to buy and sell foreign currencies at the exchange rates quoted by the People’s Bank of China. Approval of foreign currency payments by the People’s Bank of China or other regulatory institutions requires submitting a payment application form together with suppliers’ invoices, shipping documents and signed contracts. These currency exchange control procedures imposed by the PRC government authorities may restrict the ability of our PRC subsidiary to transfer its net assets to the Parent Company through loans, advances or cash dividends.

 

The current PRC Enterprise Income Tax (“EIT”) Law and its implementing rules generally provide that a 10% withholding tax applies to China-sourced income derived by non-resident enterprises for PRC enterprise income tax purposes unless the jurisdiction of incorporation of such enterprises’ shareholder has a tax treaty with China that provides for a different withholding arrangement.

 

The following table sets forth a summary of changes in our working capital from December 31, 2019 to June 30, 2020:

 

   June 30,   December 31,   Changes in 
   2020   2019   Amount   Percentage 
Working capital deficit:                
Total current assets  $1,831,688   $1,571,095   $260,593    16.6%
Total current liabilities   2,627,493    2,835,463    (207,970)   (7.3)%
Working capital deficit  $(795,805)  $(1,264,368)  $468,563    (37.1)%

 

Our working capital deficit decreased by $468,563 to $795,805 at June 30, 2020 from $1,264,368 at December 31, 2019. The decrease in working capital deficit was primarily attributable to an increase in cash of approximately $484,000, a decrease in accrued professional fees of approximately $273,000, and a decrease in accrued research and development fees of approximately $142,000, offset by a decrease in accounts receivable – related party of approximately $215,000, an increase in accrued liabilities and other payables – related parties of approximately $84,000, and an increase in operating lease obligation of approximately $76,000.

Because the exchange rate conversion is different for the consolidated balance sheets and the consolidated statements of cash flows, the changes in assets and liabilities reflected on the consolidated statements of cash flows are not necessarily identical with the comparable changes reflected on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Cash Flows for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2019

 

The following summarizes the key components of our cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:

 

   Six Months Ended
June 30,
 
   2020   2019 
Net cash used in operating activities  $(3,924,902)  $(3,920,258)
Net cash used in investing activities   (28,437)   (150,988)
Net cash provided by financing activities   4,441,943    5,103,704 
Effect of exchange rate on cash   (4,394)   116,559 
Net increase in cash  $484,210   $1,149,017 

 

Net cash flow used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $3,924,902, which primarily reflected our consolidated net loss of approximately $6,327,000, and the changes in operating assets and liabilities, primarily consisting of an increase in prepaid expenses and other current assets of approximately $124,000, and a decrease in accrued liabilities and other payables of approximately $387,000, offset by a decrease in accounts receivable – related party of approximately $213,000, an increase in accrued liabilities and other payables – related parties of approximately $84,000, and the non-cash items adjustment primarily consisting of depreciation and amortization of approximately $153,000, and stock-based compensation and service expense of approximately $2,449,000.

 

Net cash flow used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $3,920,258, which primarily reflected our consolidated net loss of approximately $8,944,000, the non-cash item adjustment consisting of changes in warrants derivative liabilities of approximately $461,000, and the changes in operating assets and liabilities, primarily consisting of an increase in accounts receivable of approximately $92,000, and a decrease in accrued liabilities and other payables of approximately $501,000, offset by a decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets of approximately $379,000, a decrease in security deposit of $100,000, and the add-back of non-cash items primarily consisting of depreciation and amortization of approximately $284,000, stock-based compensation and service expense of approximately $4,718,000, and allocated financing costs of approximately $525,000.

 

We expect our cash used in operating activities to increase due to the following:

 

the development and commercialization of new products;

 

an increase in professional staff and services; and

 

an increase in public relations and/or sales promotions for existing and/or new brands as we expand within existing markets or enter new markets.

 

Net cash flow used in investing activities was $28,437 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to $150,988 for the six months ended June 30, 2019. During the six months ended June 30, 2020, we made additional investment in equity method investment of approximately $28,000. Net cash flow used in investing activities was $150,988 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Our capital requirements for the next twelve months primarily relate to working capital requirements, including salaries, fees related to third parties’ professional services, reduction of accrued liabilities, mergers, acquisitions and the development of business opportunities. These uses of cash will depend on numerous factors including our sales and other revenues, and our ability to control costs. All funds received have been expended in the furtherance of growing the business. The following trends are reasonably likely to result in a material decrease in our liquidity over the near to long term:

 

  an increase in working capital requirements to finance our current business, including ongoing research and development programs, clinical studies, as well as commercial strategies;

 

  the use of capital for mergers, acquisitions and the development of business opportunities;

 

  addition of administrative personnel as the business grows; and

 

  the cost of being a public company.

 

In the third quarter of 2019, we had secured a $20 million credit facility (Line of Credit) provided by our Chairman, Wenzhao Lu.  The unsecured credit facility bears interest at a rate of 5% and provides for maturity on drawn loans 36 months after funding. The note is not convertible to equity. As of June 30, 2020, the total principal amount outstanding under the Credit Line was $2.9 million and we have approximately $17.1 million remaining available under the Line Credit. 

 

On December 13, 2019, we entered into an Open Market Sale AgreementSM (the “Sales Agreement”) with Jefferies LLC, as sales agent (“Jefferies”), pursuant to which we may offer and sell, from time to time, through Jefferies, shares of our common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $20.0 million. On April 6, 2020, the date on which we filed our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, our registration statement became subject to the offering limits set forth in General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3. As of April 6, 2020, the aggregate market value of our outstanding common stock held by non-affiliates, or public float, was $39,564,237, based on 23,691,160 shares of our outstanding common stock that were held by non-affiliates on such date and a price of $1.67 per share, which was the price at which our common stock was last sold on The Nasdaq Capital Market on February 19, 2020 (a date within 60 days of the date hereof), calculated in accordance with General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3. We have not offered any securities pursuant to General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3 in the 12 calendar months preceding the date of this prospectus supplement. We filed a prospectus supplement to amend and supplement the information in our prospectus and original prospectus supplement based on the amount of securities that we are eligible to sell under General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3. After giving effect to the $13,000,000 offering limit imposed by General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3, we may offer and sell additional shares of our common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $13,000,000 from time to time through Jefferies acting as our sales agent in accordance with the terms of the sales agreement.

 

We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash will be insufficient to satisfy our cash requirements under our present operating expectations through cash available under our Credit Line and sales of equity through our Sales Agreement. Other than funds received from the sale of our equity and advances from our related party, and cash resource generating from our operations, we presently have no other significant alternative source of working capital. We have used these funds to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations and grow our company. We will need to raise significant additional capital to fund our operations and to provide working capital for our ongoing operations and obligations. Therefore, our future operation is dependent on our ability to secure additional financing. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. However, the trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we will be required to cease our operations. To date, we have not considered this alternative, nor do we view it as a likely occurrence.

Contractual Obligations and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We have certain fixed contractual obligations and commitments that include future estimated payments. Changes in our business needs, cancellation provisions, and other factors may result in actual payments differing from the estimates. We cannot provide certainty regarding the timing and amounts of payments. We have presented below a summary of the most significant assumptions used in our determination of amounts presented in the tables, in order to assist in the review of this information within the context of our consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows. The following tables summarize our contractual obligations as of June 30, 2020, and the effect these obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flows in future periods.

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We presently do not have off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk

 

A portion of our operations are in China. Thus, a portion of our revenues and operating results may be impacted by exchange rate fluctuations between RMB and US dollars. For the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, we had an unrealized foreign currency translation gain of approximately $3,000 and an unrealized foreign currency translation loss of approximately $34,000, respectively, because of changes in the exchange rate. For the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, we had an unrealized foreign currency translation loss of approximately $19,000 and an unrealized foreign currency translation gain of approximately $9,000, respectively, because of changes in the exchange rate.

 

Inflation

 

The effect of inflation on our revenue and operating results was not significant.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

As a smaller reporting company, as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item.

  

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive and financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.

 

In connection with the preparation of the quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, which are defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Based on this evaluation, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting were not effective as of June 30, 2020 due to the significant deficiencies which aggregate to a material weakness and was previously reported in our Form 10-K Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2019 (“2019 10-K”), that have not yet been remediated.

 

Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

There were no material changes from the risk factors set forth under Part I, Item 1A., “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, some tenants have delayed on rent payment. Our general development operations have continued during the COVID-19 pandemic and we have not had significant disruption. Currently we are unable to accurately predict the future impact of COVID-19 due to the developing circumstances and uncertainty surrounding this current pandemic, including the ultimate geographic spread of COVID-19, the severity of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, and effectiveness of the actions that may be taken by governmental authorities. Our management has been closely monitoring the impact caused by COVID-19 and we will continue to operate our business as steadily and safely as we can.
