NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS; BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Bakhu Holdings, Corp. (formerly Planet Resources, Corp.) (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada, U.S. on April 24, 2008. In May 2009, the Company began to look for other types of business to pursue that would benefit the stockholders. To pursue businesses outside the mining industry the name of the Company was changed with the approval of the directors and stockholders to Bakhu Holdings, Corp. on May 4, 2009.

 

The Company has not generated any revenue to date, and consequently, its operations are subject to all risks inherent in establishing a new business enterprise. For the period from inception, April 24, 2008, through October 31, 2021, the Company had accumulated losses of $33,829,754.

 

The Company holds a license from Cell Science Holding Ltd., an affiliate (“Cell Science”), to plant cell replication technology and related proprietary equipment, processes, and formulations to produce, manufacture, and sell cannabis-related byproducts—sometimes referred to as cannabinoids—exclusively in North and Central America and the Caribbean for medical, food additive, and recreational uses.

 

On August 9, 2019, the Company formed Cell Science CBD International, Inc., a California corporation as a wholly owned subsidiary to commercialize use of the licensed technology to produce and manufacture cannabis and their byproducts that have measurable tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration potency less than 3% on a dry weight basis. This subsidiary had no active operations as of January 31, 2022. When used herein, the “Company” includes this consolidated subsidiary.

 

In the opinion of management, the Company’s financial statements reflect all adjustments that are of a normal recurring nature necessary for presentation of financial statements for interim periods in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q in Article 10 of SEC Regulation S-X. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of our financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. As used in this report, the term the “Company” means Bakhu Holdings, Corp. and its subsidiary, unless the context indicates otherwise.

 

The Company condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in our annual audited financial statements, which the Company prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2021.

 

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and are presented in US dollars.

 

Going Concern

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has incurred losses since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $33,829,754 as of January 31, 2022 and further losses are anticipated in the development of its business raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

 

Use of Estimates and Assumptions

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 those estimates.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The Company’s functional currency and its reporting currency is the United States dollar.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments approximates their fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

At January 31, 2021, the Company had one stock-based compensation plan, the 2020 Long-Term Incentive Plan (“2020 Plan”), which is more fully described in Note 3.

 

On September 22, 2020, the Company granted to each of its directors, Thomas K. Emmitt, Peter Whitton, Aristotle Popolizio and Evripides Drakos, a non-qualified stock option to purchase 300,000 shares of common stock, for a total of 1,200,000 shares, at an exercise price of $5.10 per share, representing the current price at which the Company is offering and selling its restricted shares for cash in its capital raising efforts. Such Options shall be exercisable for a period of seven years.  Twenty percent (20%) (i.e. 60,000) of the options shall vest and be exercisable immediately with the remaining 240,000 options vesting at the rate of 1/12 (i.e. 20,000 shares) per month so that all options shall be fully vested and exercisable on the first anniversary of the Grant Date. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

On June 7, 2021, we entered a consulting agreement with Fourth and G Holdings, LLC, through which Christopher Ganan provides consulting services. We granted the consultant one warrant to purchase 1,500,000 shares, vesting over two years, and another warrant to purchase 28,500,000 shares, vesting in increments based on specified technology commercialization accomplishments. The exercise price of these warrants is $3.00 per share, which was approximately equivalent to the market price of our common stock as of the date of grant. Warrant vesting is subject to the continued term of the consulting agreement on the vesting date. Vesting will accelerate upon certain specified events. The fair value of each warrant grant was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

 

On September 11, 2021, the Company and Fourth and G Holdings, LLC, amended their June 2021 agreement, to reflect that the total warrants were reduced from 30,000,000 to 15,000,000, of which warrants to purchase 300,000 shares were vested on signing the initial agreement.  

 

On July 27, 2021 the Company entered into Consulting Agreements with two consultants to assist the Science team and granted each Consultant a seven-year stock option to purchase 100,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $4.20 per share, which was approximately equal to the closing price for our common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

On September 16, 2021, the Company granted to its Chief Executive Office, Teddy Scott, a non-qualified stock option to purchase 5,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $4.50 per share, representing the current market price on the date of the issuance of the option. Such Options shall be exercisable for a period of ten years.  Six hundred twenty-five thousand (625,000) of the options shall vest and be exercisable immediately with the remaining options vesting at the rate of ninety-three thousand eighty-five (93,085) shares per month over a period of forty-seven (47) months. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

Dr. Scott resigned as a director and chief executive officer on November 10, 2021. As of the date of his resignation, 718,085 options were vested and are exercisable through the expiration of such options on September 16, 2031, except in the event of his death, in which case such options will terminate if not exercised within six months.  The remaining 4,281,915 options terminated upon Dr. Scott’s resignation as a director.

 

On December 3, 2021, the Company appointed an additional director and granted him a seven-year stock option to purchase 300,000 shares of common stock at $3.00 per share, which was approximately equal to the closing price for our common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

On December 6, 2021, the Company appointed a new Chief Financial and Accounting Officer and director of the Company at an annual base salary of $60,000 and granted him a seven-year stock option to purchase 300,000 shares of common stock at $3.40 per share, which was approximately equal to the closing price for our common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

On December 7, 2021 the Company entered into Consulting Agreements with two consultants to assist the Science team Pursuant to the Consulting Agreements, the Company granted each Consultant a seven-year stock option to purchase 200,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.40 per share, which was approximately equal to the closing price for our common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

On January 5, 2022, in consideration of the services of our Chief Executive Officer and our Vice President and Secretary of the Company, we granted them each a seven-year stock option to purchase 700,000 shares of common stock at $2.60 per share which was approximately equal to the closing price for our common stock on the date of grant. The fair value of each option grant issued under the 2020 Plan was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  

 

Based on the above assumptions for all stock options and warrants, the Company recognized stock-based compensation of $6,663,700 which is included in consulting fees on the Statement of Operations for the six months ended January 31, 2022.  As of January 31, 2022, there was $34,447,947 of total unrecognized stock-based compensation that is expected to be recognized over the vesting period of the options and warrants.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the assets and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share

 

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 105, “Earnings per Share.” ASC 105 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement.

 

Basic EPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS excludes all potentially dilutive shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Professional fees

 

Professional fees presented in the financial statements represent accounting fees, audit fees and legal fees associated with the filing of reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission and legal fees associated with documenting our intellectual property rights and preparing to launch a sublicensing program.  Also included in professional fees are fees paid to the stock transfer agent.  The fees are expensed as incurred.

NOTE 5 - INCOME TAXES

 

As of October 31, 2021, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards that may be available to reduce future years’ taxable income.  Future tax benefits which may arise as a result of these losses have not been recognized in these financial statements, as their realization is determined not likely to occur and accordingly, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance for the deferred tax asset relating to these tax loss carry-forwards.

 

NOTE 6 - NOTES PAYABLE – RELATED PARTIES

 

On August 1, 2019, the Company executed a promissory note in favor of the Company’s controlling shareholder, The OZ Corporation, to evidence monies loan to the Company from December 26, 2018 through July 31, 2019 in the amount of $147,513, and to evidence any additional amounts that may be loaned to the Company thereafter.  Pursuant to the terms of the promissory note, the principal and unpaid accrued simple interest at the rate of 6.0% per annum shall be due and payable on or before December 31, 2019.  The promissory note also provides that the Company may extend the maturity date for an additional 12 months, until December 31, 2020, by paying an extension fee of 1.00% of the outstanding principal loan balance, which may at the lenders’ option be advanced and added to the then outstanding principal balance. On December 31, 2021 the maturity date was extended until December 2021, and on December 31, 2021, OZ Corporation at the Company’s request extend the term of the Note for an additional 12 months, until December 31, 2022. The principal amount of the promissory note shall be increased by the amount of any additional advances of funds made by The OZ Corporation to the Company, from time to time, from the date of such advance.  Under the terms of the promissory note, The OZ Corporation, at its option may, at any time, convert all or any portion of the then unpaid principal balance and any unpaid accrued interest into shares of the Company’s common stock.  The number of shares of common stock to be issued upon such conversion shall be equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (i) the then unpaid principal balance and any unpaid accrued interest of the promissory note being converted by (ii) 80% of the average closing price of the common stock of the Company, for the ninety (90) trading days before the conversion date, rounded up to the nearest whole share.  The principal balance and accrued interest due on the note were $2,074,835 and $139,330, respectively, as of January 31, 2022.

 

The Company did not assign any value to the conversion feature of the Note because the 80% of the common stock of the Company had a negative book value of as of January 31, 2022, and the Company has not generated any revenue to date.

As a result of successfully completing the efficacy demonstration of our licensed technology in July 2021, we became obligated to issue to Cell Science, the licensor, a one-year note for an agreed one-time payment of $3.5 million, less certain credits. The amount of the credits to the note were determined and on January 31, 2022, the Company and Cell Science entered into the Third Amendment to the December 20, 2018, Patent and Technology License Agreement, as subsequently amended. with Cell Science in which the Company agreed as follows:

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

 

The following discussion contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act relating to future events or our future performance. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes to our financial statements included elsewhere in this report. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that relate to future events or our future performance. Although management believes that the assumptions made and expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure that the underlying assumptions will, in fact, prove to be correct or that actual results will not be different from expectations expressed in this report.

 

Business Overview

 

Since December 2018, we have focused on testing and commercializing cannabis plant cell-extraction and replication technologies under a technology license granted by Cell Science. This licensed technology uses plant cell-extraction and replication technology and related proprietary equipment, processes, and medium formulations in a commercially-sized bioreactor laboratory to produce, manufacture, and sell plant-based cannabis products—sometimes referred in the industry as cannabinoids—exclusively in North and Central America and the Caribbean for medical, food additive, and recreational uses.

During our fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2022, we undertook additional work to determine the limits of the technology, maximize production efficiency, and reduce production costs, which we believe will enhance our commercialization efforts. Subject to successfully completing our ongoing work, we intend to seek to commercialize the licensed technology through joint ventures, strategic partners, sublicenses, and other arrangements that may enable us to take advantage of the technical experience, regulatory relationships, and financial resources of experienced cannabinoid production firms.  We intend to authorize these third parties to incorporate the technology into production facilities they fund, build, and operate to produce medical, food additive, and recreational cannabis-related products in compliance with applicable state and federal law. We will need additional financing from external sources to begin these commercialization efforts.

During the last three fiscal years and the recently completed quarter, we have not generated revenue and have devoted our limited management, technical, and financial resources to pay general and administrative expenses to position us to be able to commercially exploit the licensed technology. In July 2021, we completed efficacy testing of our licensed technology required to demonstrate its commercial viability. As we seek to implement our commercialization plan, we are seeking substantial amounts of required additional capital.

 

Results of Operations

 

Following is management’s discussion of the relevant items affecting results of operations for the three and six months ended January 31, 2022 and 2021.

 

Revenues. We generated no net revenues during the three and six months ended January 31, 2022 and 2021. We do not expect to generate revenues until we launch our proposed commercialization program. We cannot predict whether or when that may occur.

 

Consulting Fees. Consulting fees were $2,335,887 and $786,898 for the three months ended January 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively.  Consulting fees were $6,974,328 and $1,721,002 for the six months ended January 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively.  We recognized stock-based compensation of $2,220,294 and $6,663,700 for the three and six months ended January 31, 2022, respectively, attributable to the issuance of options and warrants. See Stock-based Compensation under Note 2 in the Notes to Financial Statements for description of options and warrants granted.


Page 16



Professional Fees. Professional fees were $236,608 and $101,817 for the three months ended January 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Professional fees were $485,262 and $237,348 for the six months ended January 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Professional fees consist of legal and accounting fees associated with our reporting obligations under federal securities laws and the filing of a registration statement on behalf of stockholders for the resale of outstanding securities.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $581,197 and $287,061 for the three months ended January 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively.  Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $963,294 and $492,604 for the six months ended January 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively.  The increase in SG&A expenses is a result of an increase in our operations and increased laboratory expenses, including office facility charges, insurance, equipment, staff and other related laboratory costs, which we expect will continue.

 

Other Income (Expenses). We had net other expenses of $2,764,555 and $13,935 for the three months ended January 31, 2021, and 2020, respectively. We had net other expenses of $2,792,182 and $20,525 for the six months ended January 31, 2021, and 2020, respectively. Other expenses incurred were comprised of impairment of intangible assets in the amount of $2,734,839.  See Note 8 in the Notes to Financial Statements for a description of the impairment.  Also included in other expenses were interest expenses related to our notes payable to related parties.  The increase in interest expenses is a result of the increase in loans and notes payable due to related parties.  These borrowed funds were used for operating expenses.  

 

Net Loss. We had a net loss of $5,918,247 for the three months ended October 31, 2021, compared to $1,189,711 for the three months ended October 31, 2020. We had a net loss of $11,215,066 for the six months ended January 31, 2022, compared to $2,471,479 for the six months ended January 31, 2021. The increase in net loss was mainly due to the stock options issued during the period, increased laboratory expenses discussed above, and other related laboratory costs incurred during the six months ended January 31, 2022.

 

Liquidity And Capital Resources

 

As of January 31, 2022

 

As of January 31, 2022, our primary source of liquidity consisted of $31,003 in cash and cash equivalents. Since inception, we have financed our operations through a combination of short and long-term loans from related parties and through the private placement of our common stock. 

For the six months ended January 31, 2022, cash decreased $15,926 from $46,929 at July 31, 2021, to $31,003 at January 31, 2022.

Net cash used in operating activities was $1,615,981 during the six months ended January 31, 2022, with a net loss of $11,215,066, stock-based compensation of $6,663,700, impairment of intangible assets of $2,734,839, an increase in accounts payable of $143,203, and an increase in accrued liabilities of $57,343.

During the six months ended January 31, 2022, we had no net cash flows from investing activities.

During the six months ended January 31, 2022, financing activities provided $1,600,055 in net cash which consisted of proceeds from notes payable – related parties in the amount of $249,098, payments on notes payable – related parties of $105,046 and proceeds from the sale of common stock of $1,456,003.

Future Capital Requirements

 

Our ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon our ability to obtain capital through the sale of equity or issuance of debt, and ultimately attaining profitable operations. We expect that any financing we receive will be similar to what we have heretofore received over the previous two years to enable us to operate, which financing consists of short-term loans from related parties at negotiated rates of interest. We cannot assure you that we will be able to successfully complete any of these activities.


Page 17



 

We are presently seeking additional debt and equity financing to provide sufficient funds for payment of obligations incurred and to fund our ongoing business plan. We expect to generate revenue pursuant to our new business plan, dependent on the results on the Efficacy Demonstration now underway. We cannot assure you, however, that any such financings will be available or will otherwise be made on terms acceptable to us or that our present shareholders might suffer substantial dilution as a result.

 

We estimate that we will require approximately $8.5 million in external capital to fund our activities during the next 12 months. This consists of $1.1 million and $1.4 million during the next twelve months for our planned laboratory work to improve and customize our licensed processes. The actual amount of work completed will depend on the amount of capital available for those expenditures. Reductions in available capital would correspondingly delay and disrupt laboratory plans and, in turn, the commencement of our commercialization program that we anticipate will lead to recurring revenue. In addition to the above, we expect that operating capital for planned regular, non-laboratory corporate operations with require between approximately $5.8 million and $6.2 million during the next 12 months. Less available capital will require us to implement cost-cutting measures and may delay planned activities.

 

To fund the above requirements, we are currently seeking between $12.0 and $15.0 million through the sale of common stock or convertible debt. We have received $1,420,000 from the sale of common stock following July 31, 2021. We have no commitments or agreements to complete the offering. In addition, we may receive advance payments from joint venture partners, parties to strategic relationships, or sublicensees.

 

We may also seek additional debt and equity financing to fund payment of additional trade and other obligations incurred and costs of implementing our business plan. Our ability to attract debt financing will be substantially impaired by our current lack of both revenues and a robust, viable trading market for our common stock. Accordingly, any debt financing will likely be convertible to common stock, at the lender’s option, at prices discounted to our stock trading price at the time of conversion, which could dilute the interests of existing stockholders. We cannot assure that any such financings will be available, or can be completed on terms acceptable, to us. Any transaction involving the issuance of preferred or common stock, or securities convertible into common stock, would result in dilution, possibly substantial, to our current security holders.

 

Critical Accounting Pronouncements

 

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). GAAP requires the use of estimates, assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenues and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risks, and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

 

Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 2 of our financial statements included in our July 31, 2021, Form 10-K. While these significant accounting policies impact our financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates. Our management believes that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause a material effect on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

See Note 2 in the Notes to the Financial Statements. We have reviewed accounting pronouncements issued during the past two years and have adopted any that are applicable to the Company. We have determined that none had a material impact on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows for the periods presented in this report.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, financings, or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or other persons, also known as “special purpose entities” (“SPE”s).

 

ITEM 3.QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK 

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by our Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our management carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”). Based on that evaluation, management concluded that, during the period covered by this report, such internal controls and procedures were not effective due to the following material weakness identified:

 

·lack of appropriate segregation of duties 

·lack of control procedures that include multiple levels of supervision and review 

·lack of full-time executive personnel to oversee financial reporting and controls  

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

There have not been any changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the quarter ended October 31, 2021, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

None.

 

ITEM 1A.RISK FACTORS 

 

Notwithstanding that we are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this Item 1A, in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is including the following Risk Factor in its Quarterly Report.

 

Risks Related to Ukrainian Crises

 

Russia’s recent military intervention in Ukraine and the international community’s response have created substantial political and economic disruption, uncertainty, and risk.

 

Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine in late February 2022, Ukraine’s widespread resistance, and the NATO led and United States coordinated economic, financial, communications, and other sanctions imposed by other countries have created significant political and economic world uncertainty. There is significant risk of expanded military confrontation between Russia and other countries, possibly including the United States. Current and likely additional international sanctions against Russia may contribute to higher costs, particularly for petroleum-based products. These and related actions, responses, and consequences that cannot now be predicted or controlled may contribute to world-wide economic reversals. In these circumstances, our efforts to commercialize our technology may be delayed or otherwise negatively impacted.

 

The COVID-19 global pandemic has had an adverse effect on our operations and the potential commercialization of the licensed intellectual property.

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a global pandemic. We are monitoring the situation closely and our response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Our principal responsive measures include implementing a mandatory work from home policy when possible, restricting airplane travel, rescheduling inspections for required regulatory clearances and permits, delaying sublicense marketing efforts, and updating our planning for future events in recognition of the fact that potential commercial partners will likely experience similar operating difficulties. We are also evaluating the impact of the pandemic on required equipment, components, and supplies that we and potential commercial partners will require. We actively monitor COVID-19-related developments and may take further actions that alter our business operations as may be required by federal, state, or local authorities or that we determine are in the best interests of our personnel, commercial partners, vendors, and stockholders. The effects of these operational modifications will be reflected in current and future reporting periods.

 

For us, the COVID-19 pandemic substantially delayed the efforts to put the efficacy testing laboratory in full service as we worked to complete regulatory inspections and clearances, obtain necessary equipment and supplies, and assemble required international technical expertise, consultants, and personnel. These delays resulted in additional costs and delays in completing the planned testing and, in turn, submitting applications for required regulatory approvals.

 

The duration and magnitude of the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic impacts on our business operations and overall financial performance are unknown at this time and will depend on numerous circumstances outside our control or the ability of anyone to predict accurately. The secondary and tertiary unpredictable adverse economic effects on our business and on the worldwide economy are proving to be ongoing and broad. There are high probabilities of reoccurring widespread or localized virus outbreaks that may continue for many months, likely resulting in further government-ordered vaccination mandates, lockdowns, stay-home or shelter-in-place orders, social distancing; restrictions on travel; and other extensive measures. Government-approved vaccines have not been accepted by many people and are not widely available in all countries.  A full array of effective treatments for those infected by the virus have not been developed, may not be widely available, and may not be widely accepted. We


Page 20



cannot predict the effect of these circumstances on us and our vendors, suppliers, and potential commercial partners; the global economy and political conditions; and the health of our personnel, consultants, and their families; all of which will affect how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating activities can resume.

 

Even as the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, we may continue to experience an adverse effect on our business because of its global economic impact, labor shortages, and supply chain disruptions, as well as the prospect of inflation or a recession. These circumstances will likely exert similar hardships on those with which we deal, such as vendors, shippers, distributors, and potential commercial partners. As a result, we will need to continue to adjust, our business and expenditures to correlate our activities with business exigencies, including restrictions on executive and employee travel, hiring freezes or delays, and limitations on marketing. The ultimate financial impact and duration of the foregoing cannot now be predicted and may well exceed our expectations or our ability to cope with them.
