NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE A.                                              BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The financial statements of Burzynski Research Institute, Inc. (the Company), a Delaware corporation, include expenses incurred related to clinical trials, which were sanctioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1993, for Antineoplaston drugs used in the treatment of cancer.  These expenses are incurred directly by S.R. Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D. (Dr. Burzynski or “SRB”) on behalf of the Company and have been reported as research and development costs and as additional paid-in capital.  Other funds received from Dr. Burzynski have also been reported as additional paid-in capital.  Expenses related to Dr. Burzynski’s medical practice (unrelated to the clinical trials) have not been included in these financial statements.  Dr. Burzynski is the President, Chairman of the Board and owner of approximately 81.0% of the outstanding common stock of the Company, and also is the inventor and original patent holder of certain drug products known as “Antineoplastons,” which he has licensed to the Company.

 

The Company and Dr. Burzynski have entered into various agreements, which provide the Company the exclusive right in the United States, Canada and Mexico to use, manufacture, develop, sell, distribute, sublicense and otherwise exploit all the rights, titles and interest in Antineoplaston drugs used in the treatment of cancer, once the drug is approved for sale by the FDA.

 

The Company is primarily engaged as a research and development facility for Antineoplaston drugs being tested for the use in the treatment of cancer.  The Company’s investigational new drug application (“IND”) 43742 is currently under full clinical hold and the Company cannot enroll new patients into any clinical trials until the full clinical hold is removed by the FDA. At this time, none of the Antineoplaston drugs have received FDA approval; further, there can be no assurance that FDA approval will be granted.

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information. Certain disclosures and information normally included in financial statements have been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of management of the Company, these financial statements contain all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of financial position as of November 30, 2018 and February 28, 2018, results of operations for the three and nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, and cash flows for the nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017.  All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year.  These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 28, 2018.

 

NOTE  B.                                           ECONOMIC DEPENDENCY

 

The Company has not generated significant revenues since its inception and has suffered losses from operations, has a working capital deficit and has an accumulated deficit.  Dr. Burzynski has funded the capital and operational needs of the Company through his medical practice since inception, and has entered into various agreements to continue such funding.

 

The Company is economically dependent on its funding through Dr. Burzynski’s medical practice.  In the past, a portion of Dr. Burzynski’s patients have been admitted and treated as part of the clinical trial programs.  The Company’s IND 43742 is currently under full clinical hold and the Company cannot enroll new patients into any clinical trials until the full clinical hold is removed by the FDA. The FDA imposes numerous regulations and requirements regarding these patients, and the Company is subject to inspection at any time by the FDA.  These regulations are complex and subject to interpretation and though it is management’s intention to comply fully with all such regulations, there is the risk that the Company is not in compliance and is thus subject to sanctions imposed by the FDA. In addition, as with any medical practice, Dr. Burzynski is subject to potential claims by patients and other potential claimants commonly arising out of the operation of a medical practice.  The risks associated with Dr. Burzynski’s medical practice directly affect his ability to fund the operations of the Company.

On September 14, 1996, the Company granted 600,000 stock options, with an exercise price of $0.35 per share, to an officer who is no longer with the Company.  The options vested as follows:

 

 

 

Vesting Date

 

400,000 options

 

September 14, 1996

 

100,000 options

 

June 1, 1997

 

100,000 options

 

June 1, 1998

 

 

The options are valid in perpetuity.  In addition, for a period of 10 years from the grant date, they increase in the same percentage of any new shares of stock issued; however, no shares were issued during such 10-year periods from the grant date.  None of the options have been exercised as of November 30, 2018.

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation under the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”) 718, Compensation — Stock Compensation, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to employees and non-employee officers based on estimated fair values as of the date of grant. Compensation expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period.

 

The Company accounts for share-based payments to non-employees, with guidance provided by FASB ASC 505-50, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees.

 

The Company did not grant any options and no options previously granted vested in any of the periods presented in these financial statements. Thus, there was no effect on net loss or loss per share regarding the provisions of FASB ASC 718 or FASB ASC 505-50 in any of the periods presented.

 

Effective July 5, 2012, the Company entered into a Marketing and Consulting Agreement (the “Marketing Agreement”) with Worldwide Medical Consultants, Inc. (“WMC”) and CARIGEN, LTD (“SRB”), an entity wholly-owned and controlled by Dr. Burzynski, pursuant to which WMC will (i) provide SRB with various marketing and consulting services to assist SRB in locating and developing cancer or health related centers in certain foreign markets and (ii) make payments to the Company equal to 10% of each consulting fee received by WMC for the aforementioned services provided to SRB, net of certain expenses incurred by WMC (“WMC Payment”). In consideration of the WMC Payment, the Company agreed to grant to WMC warrants to acquire an aggregate of 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock, exercisable at $0.10 per share with a ten year exercise period, with 1,000,000 shares vesting upon execution of the agreement and the remaining 1,000,000 shares to vest upon the first closing of a transaction by SRB as a result of the services provided by WMC under the Marketing Agreement. The fair market value of the vested warrants as of the date of grant was measured using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and totaled approximately $160,000 or $0.16 per warrant. As of November 30, 2018, none of the aforementioned warrants have been exercised and no additional vesting has occurred.

 

NOTE D.                                              LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

 

The Company accounts for loss per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, Earnings per Share. Basic loss per share amounts are calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted loss per share is calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the periods, including the dilutive effect of all common stock equivalents. Dilutive options and warrants that are issued during a period or that expire or are canceled during a period are reflected in the computations for the time they were outstanding during the periods being reported. During the nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, 1,600,000 warrants and stock options were excluded from the calculation of diluted loss per share because their effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

NOTE  E.                                           INCOME TAXES

 

The  Company follows the provisions of FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes.  The Company is not aware of any material unrecognized tax uncertainties as a result of tax positions previously taken.

 

The Company recognizes interest and penalties as interest expense when they are accrued or assessed.

The federal income tax returns of the Company for 2017, 2016, and 2015 are subject to examination by the IRS, generally for three years after they are filed.

 

The actual provision for income tax for the three and nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017 differ from the amounts computed by applying the U.S. federal income tax rate of 21% and 34%, respectively, to the pretax loss as a result of the following:

At November 30, 2018, the Company had a net deferred tax asset of $0, which includes a valuation allowance of $195,074. The Company’s ability to utilize net operating loss carryforwards and alternative minimum tax credit carryforwards will depend on its ability to generate adequate future taxable income.  The Company has no historical earnings on which to base an expectation of future taxable income.  Accordingly, a full valuation allowance for deferred tax assets has been provided.  At November 30, 2018, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards available to offset future taxable income in the amount of $726,053 which may be carried forward and will expire if not used between 2022 and 2039.

Introduction

 

The Company is primarily engaged as a research and development facility of drugs currently being tested for the use in the treatment of cancer, and provides consulting services.  The Company’s clinical trial initiated in April 2016 for children and adults with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) (protocol “BT-55”) is currently under full clinical hold. The Company holds the exclusive right in the United States, Canada and Mexico to use, manufacture, develop, sell, distribute, sublicense and otherwise exploit all the rights, titles and interest in Antineoplaston drugs used in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer, once an Antineoplaston drug is approved for sale by the FDA.

 

On September 3, 2004, the FDA granted the Company’s request for “orphan drug designation” (“ODD”) for the Company’s Antineoplastons (A10 & AS2-1 Antineoplaston) for treatment of patients with brain stem glioma and, on October 30, 2008, the FDA granted the Company’s request for ODD for Antineoplastons (A10 and AS2-1 Antineoplaston) for the treatment of gliomas.

 

On January 13, 2009, the Company announced that the Company had reached an agreement with the FDA for the Company to move forward with a pivotal Phase III clinical trial of combination Antineoplaston therapy plus radiation therapy in patients with newly diagnosed diffuse, intrinsic brainstem gliomas (“DBSG”).  The agreement was made under the FDA’s Special Protocol Assessment procedure, meaning that the design and planned analysis of the Phase III study of combination Antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 plus radiation therapy (“RT”) in patients with newly-diagnosed, diffuse, intrinsic brainstem glioma (protocol “BT-52”), are acceptable to support a regulatory submission seeking new drug approval.  However, the FDA placed a full clinical hold on IND 43,742 regarding such Phase III clinical trial.  Please see the section below entitled “Clinical Hold on Phase II and Phase III Clinical Trials.”

 

Clinical Hold on Phase II and Phase III Clinical Trials

 

In a letter dated June 25, 2012, the Company informed the FDA of a serious adverse event in which a patient who was receiving Antineoplastons developed grade 4 hypernatremia and subsequently died. The Antineoplaston-related hypernatremia was categorized by the investigator as possibly related to the study drug.  Of the 2,298 patients who have received at least one dose of Antineoplastons, the serious adverse events (SAEs) which have been experienced are as follows:  hemoglobin (grade 3: 0.13%; grade 4: 0.04%), extravasation (grade 3: 0.04%), pain (grade 3: 0.04%), fatigue (grade 3: 0.09%; grade 4: 0.04%), fever (grade 3: 0.09%), injection site reaction (grade 3: 0.04%), vomiting (grade 3: 0.09%), hypernatremia (grade 3: 0.09%; grade 4: 1.12%; grade 5: 0.26%), confusion (grade 3: 0.04%), seizure (grade 3: 0.04%), somnolence (grade 3: 0.35%; grade 4: 0.04%), pain: head/headache (grade 3: 0.09%) and pain: joint (grade 3: 0.04%).

 

On July 30, 2012, the FDA placed a partial clinical hold for enrollment of new pediatric patients under single patient protocols or in any of the active Phase II or Phase III studies under investigational new drug application 43,742.  The FDA imposed this partial clinical hold because, according to the FDA, insufficient information had been submitted by the Company to allow the FDA to determine whether the potential patient benefit justifies the potential risks of treatment use, and that the potential risks are not unreasonable in the context of the disease or condition to be treated.  The FDA cited 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(2)(i), 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(1)(iv), and 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(3)(i), as grounds for imposition of a clinical hold; and 21 C.F.R. § 312.305(a)(2), a criteria for expanded access use.  The FDA advised the Company that until it resolved the matter to the FDA’s satisfaction, the Company could not enroll new pediatric patients in any protocol under such IND.  The Company later notified the FDA in a September 24, 2012 letter that it was closing pediatric protocol BT-10 (under IND 43,742) for enrollment effective September 25, 2012, and that it would also terminate the protocol once all active patients had completed the study. As of February 17, 2015, all patients discontinued treatment under protocol BT-10 and such protocol was closed as of March 10, 2015.

 

In a teleconference on January 9, 2013 between the FDA and the Company, followed by a letter of the same date, the FDA notified the Company that the agency was placing IND 43,742 on partial clinical hold, due to a lack of a complete response to the issues raised by the FDA and what the FDA deemed a misleading, erroneous, and incomplete investigator brochure.  The FDA cited 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(2)(i) and 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(1)(iii), as grounds for imposition of a clinical hold.  The FDA further advised the Company that until it resolved the matter to the FDA’s satisfaction, that the Company could not enroll new adult or pediatric patients in any protocol under such IND.  The FDA also placed protocol BT-52 on clinical hold due to what the FDA deemed to be an unreasonable and significant risk of illness or injury to human subjects.  The FDA cited 21 C.F.R. § 312.42(b)(2)(i) and 21 C.F.R.§ 312.42(B)(1)(i), as grounds for imposition of a clinical hold.  The FDA advised the Company that until it resolved the matter to the FDA’s satisfaction, the Company could not legally conduct the identified clinical study under such IND.  In a teleconference with the FDA on September 16, 2013 and pursuant to the Company’s notification letter dated September 17, 2013, the Company notified the FDA that the proposed Phase III protocol BT-54 had been withdrawn from further consideration.

 

After several amendments to the IND which were reviewed by the FDA, the FDA concluded that BT-52 can be initiated and the partial clinical hold was removed by the FDA on June 20, 2014.

Additionally, the Company received IRB approval on February 4, 2015 for FDA reviewed protocol BT-55 open label, Phase II study of Antineoplaston A10 and AS2-1 in patients with a Diffuse Intrinsic Brainstem Glioma (DIPG) in five treatment groups based on patients age and prior treatment.

 

On April 20, 2016, the Company received a full clinical hold letter from the FDA based on FDA’s inspection of S.R. Burzynski’s manufacturing facility in March 2015.  On April 27, 2016, the Company requested to change the full clinical hold to partial clinical hold to allow patient #1 to continue the Antineoplaston treatment according to protocol BT-55, since the patient was enrolled before the full clinical hold was imposed.  Based on the FDA’s position regarding the Company’s request on April 27, 2016 and the Company’s teleconference with the FDA on May 3, 2016, the Company removed patient #1 from the study.

 

A temporary restraining order from the US District Court of Rhode Island allowed the resumption of patient #1’s Antineoplaston therapy on May 17, 2016.  As a result of such temporary restraining order, a subsequent letter from the FDA dated May 26, 2016 informed the Company that the full clinical hold was replaced and a partial clinical hold was imposed.  As a result, patient #1 restarted treatment under IND 43742.

 

On June 14, 2016, the FDA issued a letter to the Company in connection with the FDA’s inspection of S.R. Burzynski’s manufacturing facility (the “SRB Manufacturing”) in March 2015.  The SRB Manufacturing addressed the issues raised in the letter in a response letter submitted to the FDA on July 5, 2016 and in subsequent letters.

 

On February 20, 2017, BRI informed the FDA of the death of patient #1 on February 19, 2017. No new patients can be enrolled to protocol BT-55 or BT-52 until the partial hold on IND 43742 is lifted.  On August 24, 2017, the FDA imposed a full clinical hold on IND 43742 until deficiencies regarding the SRB Manufacturing are resolved.

 

Complaint Filed by the Texas Medical Board Against Dr. Burzynski

 

On March 3, 2017, the Texas Medical Board issued their final ruling regarding the complaint filed on December 11, 2013 and subsequently amended in July 2014 and November 2014, against Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski, who serves as our President and the Chairman of our Board of Directors.  The Texas Medical Board made allegations that Dr. Burzynski had acted unprofessionally and failed to meet standards of care under the state’s Medical Practice Act. In the final ruling, the Texas Medical Board found that Dr. Burzynski was subject to sanction for various failures that included supervision of foreign medical graduates, untimely and insufficient informed consent, medical record support documentation, tumor measurement reporting inaccuracy, and lack of disclosure of ownership interest in a pharmacy.  As a result, Dr. Burzynski was reprimanded.  His Texas license was suspended for five years but that suspension was stayed and he was placed under probation under terms and conditions that include having billing practice monitored by a billing monitor for 12 consecutive monitoring cycles, enrolling and completing a physicians education program ethics course, following informed consent protocol, passing the Medical Jurisprudence Examination, and compliance with the Medical Practice Act and other statutes regulating Dr. Burzynski’s practice.  As requested as part of the terms and conditions, Dr. Burzynski has completed payment of an administrative penalty and restitution, submission of all informed consent forms for review,  submission of an ownership interest disclosure form for review, and he has completed continuing medical education.  The Company does not believe that the final order will have an adverse impact on current activities at the Burzynski clinic.   However, if any outcomes or changes arise relating to similar matters or future allegations, this could result in substantial harm to the Company’s business and operations.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended November 30, 2018 Compared to Three Months Ended November 30, 2017

 

Research and development costs were approximately $322,000 and $343,000 for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The decrease of $21,000 or 6% was due to a decrease in personnel costs of $47,000, a decrease in material costs of $1,000, and a decrease of other research and development costs of $8,000, offset by an increase in facility and equipment costs of $25,000 and an increase in consulting and quality control costs of $10,000 as a result of a decrease in production related to the gradual completion of clinical trials.

 

General and administrative expenses were approximately $118,000 and $58,000 for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The increase of $60,000 or 104% was due to an increase in legal costs of $61,000 and a decrease in other general and administrative costs of $1,000 as a result of additional requests from regulatory agencies.

Table of Contents

 

The Company had net losses of approximately $440,000 and $401,000 for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The increase in the net loss from 2017 to 2018 is primarily due to an overall increase in general and administrative expenses offset by a decrease in research and development costs of the Company as described above.

 

Nine Months Ended November 30, 2018 Compared to Nine Months Ended November 30, 2017

 

Research and development costs were approximately $911,000 and $1,036,000 for the nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The decrease of $125,000 or 12% was due to a decrease in personnel costs of $80,000, a decrease in facility and equipment costs of $54,000, and a decrease of other research and development costs of $22,000, offset by an increase in consulting and quality control costs of $21,000 and an increase in material costs of $10,000, as a result of a decrease in production related to the gradual completion of clinical trials.

 

General and administrative expenses were approximately $388,000 and $253,000 for the nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The increase of $135,000 or 53% was due to an increase in legal and professional fees of $108,000 and other general and administrative expenses of $27,000, as a result of additional requests from regulatory agencies.

 

The Company had net losses of approximately $1,299,000 and $1,288,000 for the nine months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  The increase in the net loss from 2017 to 2018 is primarily due to an overall increase in general and administrative expense, offset by a decrease in research and development costs of the Company as described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s operations have been funded entirely by contributions from Dr. Burzynski and from funds generated from Dr. Burzynski’s medical practice.  Effective March 1, 1997, the Company entered into a Research Funding Agreement with Dr. Burzynski (the “Research Funding Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to undertake all scientific research in connection with the development of new or improved Antineoplastons for the treatment of cancer and Dr. Burzynski agreed to fund the Company’s Antineoplaston research for that purpose.  Under the Research Funding Agreement, the Company hires such personnel as is required to conduct Antineoplaston research, and Dr. Burzynski funds the Company’s research expenses, including expenses to conduct the clinical trials.  Dr. Burzynski also provides the Company laboratory and research space as needed to conduct the Company’s research activities.  The Research Funding Agreement also provides that Dr. Burzynski may fulfill his funding obligations in part by providing the Company such administrative support as is necessary for the Company to manage its business.  Dr. Burzynski pays the full amount of the Company’s monthly and annual budget of expenses for the operation of the Company, together with other unanticipated but necessary expenses which the Company incurs.  In the event the research results in the approval of any additional patents for the treatment of cancer, Dr. Burzynski shall own all such patents, but shall license to the Company the patents based on the same terms, conditions and limitations as are in the current license between Dr. Burzynski and the Company.

 

The amounts which Dr. Burzynski is obligated to pay under the agreement shall be reduced dollar for dollar by the following: (1) any income which the Company receives for services provided to other companies for research and/or development of other products, less such identifiable marginal or additional expenses necessary to produce such income, or (2) the net proceeds of any stock offering or private placement which the Company receives during the term of the agreement up to a maximum of $1,000,000 in a given Company fiscal year.

 

The Research Funding Agreement, as amended, contains an annual automatic renewal provision providing for an additional one-year term, unless one party notifies the other party at least thirty days prior to the expiration of the then current term of the agreement of its intention not to renew the agreement.  Subject to the foregoing, the term of the Research Funding Agreement was renewed and extended until February 28, 2019.  It is expected that the Research Funding Agreement will continue to renew each year prospectively unless terminated under the provisions of the agreement.

 

The Research Funding Agreement automatically terminates in the event that Dr. Burzynski owns less than fifty percent of the outstanding shares of the Company, or is removed as President and/or Chairman of the Board of the Company, unless Dr. Burzynski notifies the Company in writing of his intention to continue the agreement notwithstanding this automatic termination provision.

 

The Company estimates that it will spend approximately $300,000 during the remaining quarter of the fiscal year ending February 28, 2019. While the Company anticipates that Dr. Burzynski will continue to fund the Company’s research and FDA-related costs, there is no assurance that Dr. Burzynski will be able to continue to fund the Company’s operations pursuant to the Research Funding Agreement or otherwise.  In addition, Dr. Burzynski’s medical practice has successfully funded the Company’s research activities over the last 25 years and, in 1997, his medical practice was expanded to include traditional cancer treatment options such as chemotherapy, gene-targeted therapy, immunotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Because the Company currently is entirely dependent upon the contributions for research provided by Dr. Burzynski under the Research Funding Agreement, the Company would not be able to continue conducting its clinical trials if Dr. Burzynski ceased funding the Company’s research. In such event, the Company would be required to find immediate funding which may not be available on acceptable terms or at all. If this were to occur and the Company were not able to find adequate sources of funding, the Company would be required to cease operations. Even with Dr. Burzynski’s continued contributions under the Research Funding Agreement, the Company may be required to seek additional capital through equity or debt financing or the sale of assets until the Company’s operating revenues are sufficient to cover operating costs and provide positive cash flow; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise such additional capital on acceptable terms to the Company. In addition, there can be no assurance that the Company will ever achieve positive operating cash flow.

 

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

 

Within the 90 days prior to the date of this report, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s principal executive and financial officers, of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-14 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Based on that evaluation, the Company’s principal executive and financial officers concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective in timely alerting them to material information required to be included in periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.  There were no significant changes in the Company’s internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2018 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls subsequent to that date.
