Note 1. Business and Organization

 

Description of Business 

 

BioLargo, Inc. is an innovative technology developer and environmental engineering company driven by a mission to "make life better" by delivering robust, sustainable solutions for a broad range of industries and applications, with a focus on clean water, clean air. The company also owns a minority interest in an advanced wound care subsidiary that has licensed BioLargo Technologies and it plans to spin out or sell when the appropriate opportunity is identified.  Our business strategy is straightforward: we invent or acquire technologies that we believe have the potential to be disruptive in large commercial markets; we develop and validate these technologies to advance and promote their commercial success as we leverage our considerable scientific, engineering, and entrepreneurial talent; we then monetize these technical assets through a variety of business structures that may include licensure, joint venture, sale, spin off, or by deploying direct to market strategies.

 

Liquidity / Going concern

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we had a net loss of $7,707,000, used $3,318,000 cash in operations, and at September 30, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $1,316,000, and current assets of $1,873,000. We do not believe operating profits in the immediate future will be sufficient to fund our current level of operations. We have been, and anticipate that we will continue to be, limited in terms of our capital resources. None of our business segments (see Note 10, “Business Segment Information”) have ever generated enough revenues to fund their operations, or to contribute to our corporate operations or overhead. Thus, in light of our cash position at year end, in order to continue operations, in calendar year 2020 we have continued to sell our stock in private securities offerings and to Lincoln Park (see Note 3). Thus far this year, we have received approximately $1.7 million from Lincoln Park (an average of approximately $160,000 per month). The proceeds we receive from stock sales to Lincoln Park is a function of stock price and volume – a lower stock price and less trading volume results in less money we can receive from Lincoln Park. Although we have relied on investment funds through our agreement with Lincoln Park this year, there is no assurance that it will continue to provide the funds we need for our operations, and if it does not, we will have to rely on other forms of financing, and there is no assurance that we will be able to do so, or if we do so, it will be on favorable terms. We also regularly pay officers and vendors equity in lieu of cash, and anticipate that we will continue to be able to do so in the future. The foregoing factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, unless we are able to continue to raise funds through stock sales to Lincoln Park or other private financings, and in the long term, our ability to attain a reasonable threshold of operating efficiencies and achieve profitable operations by licensing or otherwise commercializing products incorporating our technologies. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Organization

 

We are a Delaware corporation formed in 1991. We have four wholly-owned subsidiaries: BioLargo Life Technologies, Inc., organized under the laws of the State of California in 2006; ONM Environmental, Inc. (formerly, Odor-No-More, Inc.), organized under the laws of the State of California in 2009; BioLargo Water Investment Group Inc. organized under the laws of the State of California in 2019, which wholly owns BioLargo Water, Inc., organized under the laws of Canada in 2014; and BioLargo Development Corp., organized under the laws of the State of California in 2016. Additionally, we own 97.5% (see Note 9) of BioLargo Engineering Science and Technologies, LLC (“BLEST”), organized under the laws of the State of Tennessee in 2017. We also own 47% of Clyra Medical Technologies, Inc. (“Clyra Medical”), organized under the laws of the State of California in 2012, and consolidate their financial statements (see Note 2, subheading “Principles of Consolidation,” and Note 8).

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and pursuant to Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for annual financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. We are still operating in the early stages of the sales and distribution process, and therefore our operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020, or for any other period. These unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 31, 2020.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying balance sheet and related statements of operations, cash flows, and stockholders’ deficit include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, necessary for their fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, and its wholly- and partially-owned subsidiaries, including Clyra Medical. Management believes Clyra Medical’s financial statements are appropriately consolidated with that of the Company after reviewing the guidance of ASC Topic 810, “Consolidation”, and concluding that BioLargo controls Clyra Medical. While BioLargo does not have voting interest control through a majority stock ownership of Clyra Medical (it owns 47% of the outstanding voting stock), it does exercise control under the “Variable Interest Model”: there is substantial board overlap, BioLargo is the primary beneficiary since it has the power to direct Clyra Medical’s activities that most significantly impact Clyra Medical’s performance, and it has the obligation to absorb losses or receive benefits (through royalties and licensing) that could be potentially significant to Clyra Medical. BioLargo has consolidated Clyra Medical’s operations for all periods presented. (See Note 8.)

 

All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. 

 

Foreign Currency

 

The Company has designated the functional currency of BioLargo Water, Inc., our Canadian subsidiary, to be the Canadian dollar. Therefore, translation gains and losses resulting from differences in exchange rates are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three-months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents. Substantially all cash equivalents are held in short-term money market accounts at one of the largest financial institutions in the United States. From time to time, our cash account balances are greater than the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insurance limit of $250,000 per owner per bank, and during such times, we are exposed to credit loss for amounts in excess of insured limits in the event of non-performance by the financial institution. We do not anticipate non-performance by our financial institution.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Trade accounts receivable are recorded net of allowances for doubtful accounts. Estimates for allowances for doubtful accounts are determined based on payment history and individual customer circumstances. The allowance for doubtful accounts as of December 31, 2019 was $24,000 and September 30, 2020 was $35,000.

 

Credit Concentration

 

We have a limited number of customers that account for significant portions of our revenue. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2020, each period had two customers that accounted for 10% or more of our consolidated revenues, as follows:

  $ 16     $ 292  

 

Other Non-Current Assets

 

Other non-current assets consisted of (i) security deposits of $35,000 related to our business offices, and (ii) prepaid consulting fees from the issuance of Clyra Medical stock, resulting in a fair value of $787,500 (see Note 8).

 

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU Update No. 2016-02, “Leases,” which requires lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets as a right-of-use asset with a corresponding lease liability, and lessors to recognize a net lease investment. Additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures are also required. We adopted this standard effective January 1, 2019 using the effective date option, which resulted in a $399,000 gross up of assets and liabilities; this balance may fluctuate over time as we enter into new leases, extend or terminate current leases. Upon the transition to the ASC 842, the Company elected to use hindsight as a practical expedient with respect to determining the lease terms (as we considered our updated expectations of acceptance of the Westminster California facility lease renewal) and in assessing any impairment of right-of-use assets for existing leases. No impairment is expected at this time. As of September 30, 2020, the right-of-use assets on our balance sheet related to our operating leases totals $356,000.

 

Impairment

 

Long-lived and definite lived intangible assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If the sum of the expected future undiscounted cash flows from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition is less than the carrying amount of the asset, then an impairment loss is recognized. The impairment loss is measured based on the fair value of the asset. Any resulting impairment is recorded as a reduction in the carrying value of the related asset in excess of fair value and a charge to operating results. As of September 30, 2019 and 2020, management determined that there was no impairment of its long-lived assets, including its In-process Research and Development at Clyra Medical (see Note 8).

 

Equity Method of Accounting

 

On March 20, 2020, we invested $100,000 into a South Korean entity (Odin Co. Ltd., “Odin”) pursuant to a Joint Venture agreement we had entered into with BKT Co. Ltd. and its U.S. based subsidiary, Tomorrow Water. We received a 40% non-dilutive equity interest, and BKT and Tomorrow Water each received 30% equity interests for an aggregate $150,000 investment.

 

 

BIOLARGO, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

We account for our investment in the joint venture under the equity method of accounting. We have determined that while we have significant influence over the joint venture through our technology license and our position on the Board of Directors, we do not control the joint venture or are otherwise involved in managing the entity and we own less than a majority of the equity. Therefore, we record the asset on our consolidated balance sheet and record an increase or decrease the recorded balance by our percentage ownership of the profits or losses in the joint venture. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the joint venture incurred a loss and our 40% ownership share reduced our investment interest by $27,000.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

We report basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) for common and common share equivalents. Basic EPS is computed by dividing reported earnings by the weighted average shares outstanding. Diluted EPS is computed by adding to the weighted average shares the dilutive effect if stock options and warrants were exercised into common stock. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2020, the denominator in the diluted EPS computation is the same as the denominator for basic EPS due to the anti-dilutive effect of the warrants and stock options on the Company’s net loss.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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 the financial statements, and revenues and expenses during the period reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates are used when accounting for stock-based transactions, debt transactions, derivative liabilities, allowance for bad debt, asset depreciation and amortization, among others.

 

The methods, estimates and judgments we use in applying these most critical accounting policies have a significant impact on the results of our financial statements.

 

Share-Based Compensation Expense

 

We recognize compensation expense for stock option awards on a straight-line basis over the applicable service period of the award, which is the vesting period. Fair value is determined on the grant date. Share-based compensation expense is based on the grant date fair value estimated using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model.

 

For stock and stock options issued to consultants and other non-employees for services, the Company measures and records an expense as of the earlier of the date at which either: a commitment for performance by the non-employee has been reached or the non-employee’s performance is complete. The equity instruments are measured at the current fair value, and for stock options, the instruments are measured at fair value using the Black Scholes option model.

 

The following methodology and assumptions were used to calculate share-based compensation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2020:

2020

    10         10         10         10    

 

Expected price volatility is the measure by which our stock price is expected to fluctuate during the expected term of an option. Expected volatility is derived from the historical daily change in the market price of our common stock, as we believe that historical volatility is the best indicator of future volatility.

 

The risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes calculation is based on the prevailing U.S. Treasury yield as determined by the U.S. Federal Reserve. We have never paid any cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

 

BIOLARGO, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

Historically, we have not had significant forfeitures of unvested stock options granted to employees and Directors. A significant number of our stock option grants are fully vested at issuance or have short vesting provisions. Therefore, we have estimated the forfeiture rate of our outstanding stock options as zero.

 

Warrants

 

Warrants issued with our convertible promissory notes, note payables, and lines of credit, are accounted for under the fair value and relative fair value method. The warrant is first analyzed per its terms as to whether it has derivative features or not. If the warrant is determined to be a derivative and not qualify for equity treatment, then it is measured at fair value using the Black Scholes option model, and recorded as a liability on the balance sheet. The warrant is re-measured at its then current fair value at each subsequent reporting date (it is “marked-to-market”). If the warrant is determined to not have derivative features, it is recorded into equity at its fair value using the Black Scholes option model, however, limited to a relative fair value based upon the percentage of its fair value to the total fair value including the fair value of the convertible note.

 

The convertible note issued with the warrant is recorded at its fair value, limited to a relative fair value based upon the percentage of its fair value to the total fair value including the fair value of the warrant. Further, the convertible promissory note is examined for any intrinsic beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”) of which the convertible price of the note is less than the closing common stock price on date of issuance. If the relative fair value method is used to value the convertible promissory note and there is an intrinsic BCF, a further analysis is undertaken of the BCF using an effective conversion price which assumes the conversion price is the relative fair value divided by the number of shares the convertible debt is converted into by its terms. The BCF value is accounted for as equity.

 

The warrant and BCF relative fair values are also recorded as a discount to the convertible promissory notes.

 

Non-Cash Transactions

 

We have established a policy relative to the methodology to determine the value assigned to each intangible we acquire, and/or services or products received for non-cash consideration of our common stock. The value is based on the market price of our common stock issued as consideration, at the date of the agreement of each transaction or when the service is rendered or product is received.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We account for revenue in accordance with ASC 606, “revenue from Contacts with Customers”. The guidance focuses on the core principle for revenue recognition, which is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. To achieve that core principle, the guidance provides that an entity should apply the following steps:

 

Step 1: Identify the contract(s) with a 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 (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation.

 

We have revenue from four subsidiaries, ONM, BLEST, BioLargo Water, and Clyra. ONM, BioLargo Water, and Clyra identify its contract with the customer through a written purchase order, in which the details of the contract are defined including the transaction price and method of shipment. The only performance obligation is to create and ship the product and each product has separate pricing. Revenue is recognized at a point in time when the order for its goods are shipped if its agreement with the customer is FOB manufacturer, and when goods are delivered to its customer if its agreement with the customer is FOB destination. Revenue is recognized with a reduction for sales discounts, as appropriate and negotiated in the customer’s purchase order. ONM also installs misting systems for which it bills on a time and materials basis. It identifies its contract with the customer through a written purchase order in which the details of the time to be billed and materials purchased and an estimated completion date. The performance obligation is the completion of the installation. Revenue is recognized over time as the work is performed.

 

BLEST identifies services to be performed in a written contract, which specifies the performance obligations and the rate at which the services will be billed. Each service is separately negotiated and priced. Revenue is recognized as services are performed and completed. BLEST’s contracts typically call for invoicing for time and materials incurred for that contract. A few contracts have called for milestone or fixed cost payments, where BLEST invoices an agreed-to amount per month for the life of the contract. In these instances, completed work, billed hourly, is recognized as revenue. If the billing amount is greater or lesser than the completed work, a receivable or payable is created. These accounts are adjusted upon additional billings as the work is completed. To date, there have been no discounts or other financing terms for the contracts.

In the event that we generate revenues from royalties or license fees from our intellectual property, we anticipate a licensee would pay a license fee in one or more installments and ongoing royalties based on their sales of products incorporating or using our licensed intellectual property. Upon entering into a licensing agreement, we will determine the appropriate method of recognizing the royalty and license fees.

 

Government Grants

 

We have been awarded multiple research grants from governmental and quasi-governmental institutions. The grants received are considered “other income” and are included in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. We received our first grant in 2015 and have been awarded over 80 grants totaling over $3.7 million. Some of the funds from these grants are given directly to third parties (such as the University of Alberta or a third-party research scientist) to support research on our technology. The grants have terms generally ranging between nine and eighteen months and support a majority, but not all, of the related research budget costs. This cooperative research allows us to utilize (i) a depth of resources and talent to accomplish highly skilled work, (ii) financial aid to support research and development costs, (iii) independent and credible validation of our technical claims.

 

The grants typically provide for (i) recurring monthly amounts, (ii) reimbursement of costs for research talent for which we invoice to request payment, and (iii) ancillary cost reimbursement for research talent travel related costs. All awarded grants have specific requirements on how the money is spent, typically to employ researchers. None of the funds may be used for general administrative expenses or overhead in the United States. These grants have substantially increased our level of research and development activities in Canada. We continue to apply for Canadian government and agency grants to fund research and development activities. There was no grant income for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Not all of our grant applications have been awarded, and no assurance can be made that any pending grant application, or any future grant applications, will be awarded.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Management believes the carrying amounts of the Company’s financial instruments (excluding debt and equity instruments) as of December 31, 2019, and September 30, 2020, approximate their respective fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments. Such instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable, prepaid assets, accounts payable, lines of credit, and other assets and liabilities.

 

 

Note 3. Equity Financing

 

Lincoln Park

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, pursuant to our August 2017 agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“Lincoln Park”), we elected to sell to Lincoln Park 1,398,223 shares of our common stock, for which we received $295,000 in gross and net proceeds. Additionally, we issued Lincoln Park 14,420 “additional commitment” shares required under the agreement. We did not sell any shares to Lincoln Park during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. In conjunction with the signing of the March 2020 agreement with Lincoln Park (see below), we recorded the remaining deferred offering costs on our August 2017 agreement totaling $122,000 as additional paid in capital on our consolidated balance sheet.

 

On March 30,2020, we entered into a Purchase Agreement with Lincoln Park, pursuant to which Lincoln Park agreed to purchase from us at our request up to an aggregate of $10,250,000 of our common stock (subject to certain limitations) from time to time over a period of three years. The agreement allows us, at our sole discretion, to direct Lincoln Park to purchase shares of our common stock, subject to limitations in both volume and dollar amount. The purchase price of the shares that may be sold to Lincoln Park under the Purchase Agreement is the lower of (i) the lowest sale price on the date of purchase, or (ii) the average of the three lowest closing prices in the prior 12 business days. There are no restrictions on future financings, rights of first refusal, participation rights, penalties or liquidated damages other than a prohibition on entering into a “Variable Rate Transaction,” as defined in the agreement. Lincoln Park may not assign or transfer its rights and obligations under the Purchase Agreement. This agreement replaced the August 2017 agreement with Lincoln Park. Concurrently with the Purchase Agreement, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, pursuant to which we filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the SEC on April 10, 2020. This registration statement was declared effective on April 21, 2020, and as of April 29, 2020, we commenced regular purchases under the agreement.

In the March 30, 2020 agreement, we agreed to issue 2,928,571 shares to Lincoln Park as a commitment fee, valued at $527,000 and recorded as additional paid in capital on our consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2020. Additionally, the Purchase Agreement provided for an initial sale of 1,785,715 shares to Lincoln Park for $250,000. We received those funds and issued the shares on March 31, 2020.

 

Since inception of the March 30, 2020 agreement through September 30, 2020, not including the initial purchase, we sold 6,508,675 shares to Lincoln Park for $1,043,000. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we sold 4,893,981 shares to Lincoln Park for $797,000.

 

2020 Unit Offering

 

On May 1, 2020, we commenced a private offering of units, each unit consisting of (i) common stock, (ii) a four-month stock purchase warrant, and (iii) a five-year stock purchase warrant. Unit prices are set from time-to-time based on market conditions. The number of shares of common stock issued, and the number of shares available for purchase under each warrant, are based on the quotient of the unit price and investment amount (e.g., a $100,000 investment and unit price of $0.25 is equal to 400,000 shares). The four-month warrant exercise price is equal to 120% of the unit price, and the five-year warrant is equal to 150% of the unit price.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we received an aggregate $367,000 of investments from five investors at unit prices ranging between $0.15 and $0.18, issued 2,318,194 shares of our common stock, and issued six-month and five-year warrants (see Note 6).

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2020, we recorded $2,773,000 and $1,823,000 of interest expense related to the amortization of discounts on convertible notes payable, and coupon interest from our convertible notes and line of credit.

 

The following discussion includes debt instruments to which amendments were made or included other activity that management deemed appropriate to disclose. Each of the debt instruments contained in the above table are disclosed more fully in the financial statements contained in the Company’s Annual Report filed March 31, 2020.

 

SBA Program Loans

 

In April 2020, our subsidiaries ONM, BLEST and Clyra received $218,000, $96,000 and $43,000, respectively, received loans pursuant to the U.S. Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program. The loans mature in two years and incur interest at 1%. Management believes that it has fully complied with the terms of forgiveness as set forth by the Small Business Administration, and intends to apply for forgiveness of 100% of this debt at the appropriate time.

 

Our subsidiary ONM received an Economic Injury Disaster loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration of $150,000. The term of the loan is 30 years and has a 3.75% interest rate. Monthly payments of $800 begin July 2021.

 

Convertible Note, matured April 7, 2020 (Vista Capital)

 

On January 7, 2019, Vista Capital Investments LLC (“Vista Capital”) invested $300,000 and in exchange we issued a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $330,000. Originally set to mature nine months from the date of issuance, the maturity date was extended multiple times. The note earned a one-time interest charge of 12%, which was recorded as a discount on convertible notes and was amortized over the term of the note. The note allowed conversion of the note into our common stock at a price equal to 65% of the lowest closing bid price of the Company’s common stock during the 25 consecutive trading days immediately preceding the conversion date. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion feature resulted in a fair value totaling $300,000, and is recorded as a discount on convertible notes on our balance sheet. This discount was amortized over the term of the note as interest expense, all of which was recorded in 2019.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, Vista Capital elected to convert the remaining balance of $270,000 of the outstanding principal and interest due on the note, and we issued 2,417,059 shares of our common stock.

 

Convertible Twelve-month OID notes

 

From June 7, 2019 through September 30, 2019, we received $2,235,000 and issued convertible promissory notes (each, a “Twelve-Month OID Note”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2,794,000, with a 25% original issue discount, to 34 accredited investors. The original issuance discount totaled $559,000 and is recorded as a discount on convertible notes payable on our balance sheet. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion features resulted in an aggregate fair value of $2,235,000, and is recorded as a discount on convertible notes on our balance sheet. The discounts were amortized and recorded to interest expense over the term of the notes. These notes each mature twelve months from the date of issuance.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, in exchange for $305,000 of convertible note payables that were coming due, we issued an additional $381,000 in Twelve-Month OID Notes, with a 25% original issue discount. The original issue discount totaled $76,000 and is recorded as a discount on convertible notes payable on our balance sheet. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion features resulted in an aggregate fair value of $381,000 and is recorded as debt extinguishment expense on our statement of operations. The discount will be amortized and recorded to interest expense over the term of the notes. These notes mature twelve months from the date of issuance.  

 

Each Twelve-month OID Note is convertible by the investor at any time at $0.17 per share. The notes earn interest at a rate of five percent (5%) per annum, due at maturity. At the maturity of each note, the Company exercised its right to redeem the notes through the issuance of common stock at a conversion price equal to the lower of the “conversion price” (initially $0.17, as may be adjusted), and 70% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the 25 trading days preceding the conversion date. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, $3,112,000 of the remaining outstanding principal of 12-Month OID Notes was converted, and we issued 30,208,453 shares of our common stock. Of that amount, 1,415,221 shares were issued as payment for interest due on the notes.

Note Maturity Extensions

 

On August 10, 2020, we and the holder of a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $475,000 due August 12, 2020, entered into an agreement to extend the maturity date of the note to August 12, 2021. As consideration for the extension of the maturity date, we agreed to lower the conversion price from $0.17 to $0.14, we agreed extend the expiration date from September 18, 2023 to September 18, 2025, of a warrant to purchase 1,734,375 shares of common stock, and extend the expiration date from August 12, 2024 to August 12, 2025 of a warrant to purchase 2,095,588 shares of common stock. The fair value of the reduced conversion price and extended warrant expirations dates resulted in a fair value totaling $228,000, recorded as a loss on extinguishment on our statement of operations. The noteholder then converted $119,000 of principal into 848,214 shares of common stock and $24,000 of accrued interest into 169,643 shares of common stock. The outstanding balance of this note as of September 30, 2020 was $356,000.

 

On August 10, 2020, we and the holder of a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $75,000 due August 20, 2020, entered into an agreement in which we agreed to pay $25,000, and the holder agreed to extend the maturity date of the note to August 20, 2021.
