NOTE 1 — SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the presentation of the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements follows:

 

General

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations (Regulation S-X) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results from operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2019. The unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2018 audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Basis and business presentation

 

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida in August, 1999. The Company is in the sector of the cell technology industry delivering cell therapies and biologics that help address a variety of injuries and diseases such as osteoarthritis, heart failure, lower limb ischemia, neurological conditions, autoimmune diseases and other issues. The primary business includes the development of proprietary cell therapy procedure and products as well as revenue generating physician and patient based regenerative medicine/cell therapy training services, revenues realized from an Asset Sale and Lease Agreement related to the segment of the Company business involving collecting, growing and banking cell cultures and treatment kits for humans and animals), and the operation of a cell therapy clinic (subsequently limited by the Order of Permanent Injunction, see below ). To date, the Company has not generated significant sales revenues in that they remain less than their total operating expenses, has incurred expenses, and has sustained losses. In addition, the recent Order of Permanent Injunction arising from the action brought by the Department of Justice (see Note 11), has resulting in management considering modifications to the Company business model in order to offset the loss of revenue resulting from the consequences of this Injunctive Order. Consequently, its operations are subject to all the risks inherent in the establishment of a research and development business enterprise.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific revenue recognition guidance throughout the Industry Topics of the Accounting Standards Codification. The updated guidance states 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. The guidance also provides for additional disclosures with respect to revenues and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.

 

At the time of each transaction, management assesses whether the fee associated with the transaction is fixed or determinable and whether or not collection is reasonably assured. The assessment of whether the fee is fixed or determinable is based upon the payment terms of the transaction. Collectability is assessed based on a number of factors, including past transaction history with the client and the creditworthiness of the client.

 

The Company’s primary sources of revenue are from the sale of test kits and equipment, training services, patient treatments, laboratory services and cell banking.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2019

(unaudited)

 

Revenues for kits and equipment sold are not recorded until kits and equipment are received by the customer. Revenues from in-person trainings are recognized when the training occurs and revenues from on demand online trainings are recognized when the customer purchases the rights to the training course. Any cash received as a deposit for trainings are recorded by the Company as a liability.

 

Patient treatments and laboratory services revenue are recognized when those services have been completed or satisfied.

 

Revenues for cell banking sales are accounted for as multiple performance obligations as described in ASC 606 and addresses accounting for arrangements that may involve the delivery or performance of multiple products, services and/or rights to use assets. Because the Company sells its services separately, on more than a limited basis and at a price within a narrow range, the Company was able to allocate revenue based on stand-alone pricing. The multiple performance obligations include stem cell banking, dose retrieval and yearly storage fees. Revenues for stem cell banking and dose retrieval is recognized at the point of service and revenues for the yearly storage fees is recognized over the term of the banking contract, which is typically one year with annual renewals.

 

Revenues have been adversely impacted by the Order of Permanent Injunction (see the Notes herein including Note 11).

 

At June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company had deferred revenues of $227,740 and $293,665, respectively, which includes $67,000 and $68,500, respectively, to the Intellectual Property Licensing Agreement.

 

Use of Estimates

 

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, 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. Significant estimates include the fair value of the Company’s stock, stock-based compensation, debt discounts and the valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Trade receivables are carried at their estimated collectible amounts. Trade credit is generally extended on a short-term basis; thus trade receivables do not bear interest. Trade accounts receivable are periodically evaluated for collectability based on past credit history with customers and their current financial condition.

 

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Any charges to the allowance for doubtful accounts on accounts receivable are charged to operations in amounts sufficient to maintain the allowance for uncollectible accounts at a level management believes is adequate to cover any probable losses. Management determines the adequacy of the allowance based on historical write-off percentages and the current status of accounts receivable. Accounts receivable are charged off against the allowance when collectability is determined to be permanently impaired. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, allowance for doubtful accounts was $10,068 and $30,808, respectively.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market with cost being determined on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis. The Company writes down its inventory for estimated obsolescence or unmarketable inventory equal to the difference between the cost of inventory and the estimated market value based upon assumptions about future demand and market conditions. If actual market conditions are less favorable than those projected by management, additional inventory write-downs may be required. During the periods presented, there were no inventory write-downs.

Investments

 

The Company follows Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 323-10, Investments-Equity Methods and Joint Ventures (“ASC 323-10) which requires the accounting for investments where the Company can exert significant influence, but not control of a joint venture or equity investment. The Company accounted for its 49.9 percent member interest ownerships of U.S. Stem Cell Clinic, LLC and Regenerative Wellness Clinic, LLC respectively and its 49 percent member interest ownership of U.S. Stem Cell Clinic of the Villages utilizing the equity method of accounting (See Note 3).

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. When retired or otherwise disposed, the related carrying value and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts and the net difference less any amount realized from disposition, is reflected in earnings. For financial statement purposes, property and equipment are recorded at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives of 3 to 15 years. Equipment under capital leases are recorded at the estimated present value of the minimum lease payments. Equipment under capital leases are amortized over the term of the lease, which is three years.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company measures the cost of services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the fair value of the award. For employees and directors, the fair value of the award is measured on the grant date and for non-employees, the fair value of the award is generally re-measured on vesting dates and interim financial reporting dates until the service period is complete. The fair value amount is then recognized over the period during which services are required to be provided in exchange for the award, usually the vesting period. Stock-based compensation expense is recorded by the Company in the same expense classifications in the statements of operations, as if such amounts were paid in cash.

 

Net Loss per Common Share, basic and diluted

 

The Company computes earnings (loss) per share under Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 260-10, Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260-10”). Net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year.  Diluted earnings per share, if presented, would include the dilution that would occur upon the exercise or conversion of all potentially dilutive securities into common stock using the “treasury stock” and/or “if converted” methods as applicable.

 

The computation of basic and diluted income (loss) per share as of June 30, 2019 and 2018 excludes potentially dilutive securities when their inclusion would be anti-dilutive, or if their exercise prices were greater than the average market price of the common stock during the period.

 

Potentially dilutive securities excluded from the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share are as follows:

 

   

June 30,

2019

2018

 

Options to purchase common stock

    1,112,251       118,019  

Totals

    114,082,921       101,748,712  

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

The Company’s financial instruments that are exposed to a concentration of credit risk are cash and accounts receivable. Generally, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents in interest-bearing accounts does not exceed FDIC insurance limits. The financial stability of these institutions is periodically reviewed by senior management.

Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 825-10, Financial Instruments (“ASC 825-10”) requires disclosure of the fair value of certain financial instruments. The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and short-term borrowings, as reflected in the balance sheets, approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these instruments. All other significant financial assets, financial liabilities and equity instruments of the Company are either recognized or disclosed in the financial statements together with other information relevant for making a reasonable assessment of future cash flows, interest rate risk and credit risk. Where practicable the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities have been determined and disclosed; otherwise only available information pertinent to fair value has been disclosed.

 

The Company follows Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820-10”) and Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 825-10, Financial Instruments (“ASC 825-10”), which permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2019

(unaudited)

 

On March 3, 2017, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement of intellectual property with GACP whereby the Company agreed to sell all of the Company’s worldwide rights, title or interest in certain intellectual and other property (as defined) associated with the cell banking business for $50,000. The effective date of the sale is upon the expiry or early termination of the related equipment lease transaction (See Notes 4 and 8).

 

Adoption of Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the FASB established ASC Topic 842, Leases (Topic 842), by issuing ASU No. 2016-02, which requires lessees to recognize leases on-balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. Topic 842 was subsequently amended by ASU No. 2018-01, Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842; ASU No. 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases; and ASU No. 2018-11, Targeted Improvements. The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and lease liability on the balance sheet. Leases will be classified as finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern and classification of expense recognition in the statement of operations. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2019.

 

The new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. The Company has elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permit it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The Company did not elect the use-of-hindsight or the practical expedient pertaining to land easements; the latter is not applicable to the Company.

 

The new standard had a material effect on the Company’s financial statements. The most significant effects of adoption relate to (1) the recognition of new ROU assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet for real estate operating leases; and (2) providing significant new disclosures about its leasing activities.

 

Upon adoption, the Company recognized additional operating lease liabilities, net of deferred rent, of approximately $57,000 based on the present value of the remaining minimum rental payments under current leasing standards for existing operating leases. The Company also recognized corresponding ROU assets of approximately $57,000.

 

The new standard also provides practical expedients for an entity’s ongoing accounting. The Company elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. This means, for those leases that qualify, the Company will not recognize ROU assets or lease liabilities, and this includes not recognizing ROU assets or lease liabilities for existing short-term leases of those assets in transition. Beginning in 2019, the Company changed to its disclosed lease recognition policies and practices, as well as to other related financial statement disclosures due to the adoption of this standard. See Note 5.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

There were various updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or application to specific industries and are not expected to a have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Subsequent Events

 

The Company evaluates events that have occurred after the balance sheet date but before the consolidated financial statements are issued.  Based upon the evaluation, the Company did not identify any recognized or non-recognized subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements, except as disclosed.

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN AND MANAGEMENT’S LIQUIDITY PLANS

 

The accompanying condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As shown in the accompanying financial statements during six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company incurred net losses of $1,512,344 and has a working capital deficit (current liabilities in excess of current assets) of $7,144,380. These factors among others raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time.

 

 

U.S. STEM CELL, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2019

(unaudited)

 

The Company’s primary source of operating funds in the past has been from revenue generated from sales and cash proceeds from the sale of common stock and the issuance of convertible and other debt. The Company has experienced net losses and negative cash flows from operations since inception, and has been hindered by the recent Order of Permanent Injunction resulting from the action brought by the Department of Justice (see Note 11). Under the current business model, the Injunction is likely to significantly reduce the Company’s future revenues. Management is considering modifications to the Company business model in order to offset the loss of revenue resulting from the consequences of this Injunctive Order. As of the date herein, no specific undertakings have commenced. The Company has stockholders’ deficiencies at June 30, 2019 and requires additional financing to fund future operations.

 

The Company’s existence is dependent upon management’s ability to develop profitable operations and to obtain additional funding sources. There can be no assurance that the Company’s financing efforts or revenues realized from the Asset Sale and Lease Agreement will result in profitable operations or the resolution of the Company’s liquidity problems. The accompanying statements do not include any adjustments that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

In adopting ASC Topic 842, Leases (Topic 842), the Company has elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permit it not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The Company did not elect the use-of-hindsight or the practical expedient pertaining to land easements; the latter is not applicable to the Company. In addition, the Company elected not to apply ASC Topic 842 to arrangements with lease terms of 12 months or less. In determining the length of the lease term to its long term lease, the Company determined there was not an option to extend the lease. At lease commencement date, the Company estimated the lease liability and the right of use assets at present value using the Company’s estimated incremental borrowing rate of 8% and determined the initial present value, at inception, of $274,180. On January 1, 2019, upon adoption of ASC Topic 842, the Company recorded right to use assets of $56,734 and lease liability of $56,734.

Lab and Medical Equipment Capitalized Lease

 

On March 3, 2017, the Company entered into an asset sale and lease agreement (sale/leaseback transaction; “Asset Sale and Lease Agreement”) with GACP, whereby the Company sold certain lab, medical and other equipment relating to the cell banking business for $400,000 and leased back the sold equipment over a three year term.  The Company recognized the arrangement as a capital lease.  The Company initially recorded the equipment and the capitalized lease liability at the estimated present value of the minimum lease payments of $619,825. 

 

The lease includes a base monthly rental payment of $20,000, due the first day of each calendar month plus contingent rent equal to 2.3%, 22.5%, and 31.6% of revenues collected on deposits arising from cell banking business for years 1, 2 and 3, respectively.  The contingent rent is recognized as a period expense and as interest expense at the time of collection.  At the expiration of the lease, the Company is required to return all leased equipment and along with any maintenance records, logs, etc. in the Company’s possession to the lessor with no right of repurchase.

The effective interest rate of the capitalized lease is estimated at 10.00% based on the Company estimated incremental borrowing rate.

On March 30, 2012, the Company and Northstar agreed to extend until May 1, 2012 the initial payment date for any and all required monthly under the Note, such that the first of the four monthly payments required under the Note will be due and payable on May, 2012 and all subsequent payments will be due on a monthly basis thereafter commencing on June 1, 2012, and to waive any and all defaults and/or events of default under the Note with respect to such payments. The Company did not make the required payment, and as a result, was in default of the revised agreement. The Company renegotiated the terms of the Note and Northstar agreed to suspend the requirement of principal payments by the Company and allow payment of interest-only in common stock.

 

On September 21, 2012, the Company issued 5,000 common stock purchase warrants to Northstar that was treated as additional interest expense upon issuance.

 

On October 1, 2012, the Company and Northstar entered into a limited waiver and forbearance agreement providing a recapitalized new note balance comprised of all sums due Northstar with a maturity date extended perpetually. The Company agreed to issue 5,000,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and 10,000 shares of common stock in exchange for $210,000 as payment towards outstanding debt, default interest, penalties, professional fees outstanding and due Northstar. In addition, the Company executed a security agreement granting Northstar a lien on all patents, patent applications, trademarks, service marks, copyrights and intellectual property rights of any nature, as well as the results of all clinical trials, know-how for preparing Myoblasts, old and new clinical data, existing approved trials, all right and title to Myoblasts, clinical trial protocols and other property rights.

 

In addition, the Company granted Northstar a perpetual license on products as described for resale, relicensing, and commercialization outside the United States. In connection with the granted license, Northstar shall pay the Company a royalty of up to 8% on revenues generated.

 

Effective October 1, 2012, the effective interest rate was 12.85% per annum. The parties agreed, as of February 28, 2013, to reduce the interest rate to 7% per annum.

 

In connection with the consideration paid, Northstar waived, from the effective date through the earlier of termination or expiration of the agreement, satisfaction of the obligations as described in the forbearance agreement.

 

In 2012, 5,000,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock were approved to be issued, which was subsequently increased to 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. In addition, the Company was obligated to issue additional preferred stock equal in lieu of payment of cash of accrued and unpaid interest on each six month anniversary of the effective date (October 1, 2012). In lieu of the initial two payments in preferred stock, the parties agreed to modify the voting rights of the subsequently cancelled Series A Convertible Preferred Stock from 20 votes per share on matters to be voted on by the common stock holders to 25 votes per share on matters to be voted on by the common stock holders and all prior and subsequent payments of interest will be in common stock. The Company is required to issue additional shares of its common stock (as amended), in lieu of cash, each six month anniversary of the effective date for any accrued and unpaid interest.

 

On March 1, 2017, Northstar and the Company entered into a settlement agreement (“Settlement Agreement “) related to then pending litigation (See Note 11). Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Settlement Agreement, Northstar converted its outstanding Series A Convertible preferred stock, into twenty million (20,000,000) shares of common stock according to the original conversion terms. In addition, and separate and apart from the conversion, Northstar received Eleven Million (11,000,000) shares of the Company’s common stock. Northstar will receive ten percent (10%) of all Company international sales (based on a gross sales basis). There was no effect of the 10% obligation as there were no international sales in 2017 or, to date, in 2018 Furthermore, a Northstar designee, Greg Knutson, was appointed as a member of the Board of Directors of the Company and two Company directors, Michael Tomas and Kristin Comella, each exercised their prior Northstar options to each receive a Five percent (5%) Member Interest in Northstar.  The parties agreed to a mutual release and Northstar agreed to terminate any UCC lien on the Company assets previously filed for the benefit of Northstar. On March 9, 2017 and April 1, 2017, the Company issued 30,000,000 and 1,000,000 shares of its common stock, respectively, as described above. In connection with the settlement, the Company recorded a loss on litigation settlement of $316,800.

NOTE 10 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

On December 12, 2017, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Jeannine Mallard v. U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., US Stem Cell Clinics LLC., Regenestem, LLC., Regenestem Network, LLC., and Kristin C. Comella. The Company will continue to defend it vigorously.

 

On September 17, 2015, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Patsy Bade v. Bioheart, Inc. US Stem Cell Clinics LLC, Alejandro Perez, ARNP, and Shareen Greenbaum, M.D., and on November 30, 2015, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Elizabeth Noble v. Bioheart, Inc. US Stem Cell Clinics LLC, Alejandro Perez, ARNP, and Shareen Greenbaum, M.D. During the year ended December 31, 2016, both matters settled by the Company’s insurance policy with no additional cost to the Company, excluding the Company payment of the $100,000 insurance company deductible of which $11,000 was paid in fiscal 2017. As a result of the final settlement and determination of insurance coverage, the Company recognized $100,000 of expense due to litigation for the year ended December 31, 2017, of which $89,000 is included in accrued expenses at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

The Company is subject at times to other legal proceedings and claims, which arise in the ordinary course of its business.  Although occasional adverse decisions or settlements may occur, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters should not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity.  There was no outstanding litigation as of June 30, 2019 other than that described above.

 

SEC Investigation

 

On or about March 1, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), Miami Regional Office (“Commission Staff”), served a subpoena upon U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., which seeks the production of certain documents and communications. The Commission Staff is conducting a formal, non-public, fact-finding inquiry of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (“Investigation”).  The Investigation is neither an allegation of wrongdoing nor a finding that any violation of law has occurred.  The Company is cooperating with, and has provided information and documents to, the Commission Staff.  

 

As part of the Investigation, on or about May 14, 2018, the Commission Staff served subpoenas upon Kristin Comella and Mike Tomas, respectively, seeking the production of certain documents and communications. Ms. Comella and Mr. Tomas responded to the respective subpoenas and provided information and documents to the Commission Staff.

 

In a letter dated May 30, 2019, the Commission Staff advised U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. that the Investigation has been concluded and, as of this date, the Commission Staff does not intend to recommend to the Commission an enforcement action against the Company. The Commission’s Staff’s notice to the Company was provided under the guidelines set out in the final paragraph of Securities Act Release No. 5310.

 

Government Claim

 

On May 9, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an injunctive action, specifically United States of America v. U.S. Stem Clinic, LLC, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., Kristin C. Comella, and Theodore Gradel. The Complaint alleges, among other matters that the defendants manufacture “stromal vascular fraction” (SVF) products from patient adipose (fat) tissue, which the companies then market as stem cell-based treatments, and which U.S. Stem Cell Clinic, LLC administers to patients, without first obtaining what the government alleges are necessary FDA approvals. Although Theodore Gradel was initially listed as a defendant, he subsequently entered into a consent agreement and is no longer party to this case.

 

The U.S. and the defendants filed cross motions for summary judgment, each asking for a ruling in its favor. On June 3, 2019, the Court entered an order granting Summary Judgment for the government and denying the defendants’ motion for summary judgment. The order focused on the defendants’ actions in providing and marketing SVF therapy. In an order dated June 4, 2019, the Court granted the defendants’ request to allow it the opportunity to work out the language of the form of injunction with the government, and if unsuccessful, to provide a status report to the Court by June 14, 2019, outlining areas of disagreement. The Court further ordered that the defendants (U.S. Stem Clinic, LLC, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., and Kristin C. Comella) ‘not sell, provide or otherwise engage in any SVF therapy or any other activities to be regulated by the FDA as explained in the Court’s Order on the Parties’ Motions for Summary Judgment.” The Company is preparing to appeal this decision and, in the interim, has complied with the requirements of the Court Order. The Company is not able to predict the duration, scope, results, or consequences of the  summary judgment.  There can be no assurance that this matter will be resolved in a manner that is not adverse to the Company.

 

Since the Court’s issuance of the Order of Permanent Injunction, the Company has received demand letters for compensation from persons who store their SVF Product and/or other tissue product with the tissue bank (several of the persons have requested refunds of the monies paid to the tissue bank and one person has requested a full refund of monies paid to an altogether separate company due to her not receiving the full amount of treatments she requested; such requests for compensation, to date, have not been material) and requests that the Company preserve cells in the Company’s possession.

Settlement Agreement and General Release

 

The Company was one of the parties to a Settlement Agreement and General Release (the “Agreement”) dated June 3, 2019 related to certain medical procedures. Without admitting any liability, and as part of that Agreement, the Company agreed to provide a five year 5.25% Promissory Note, dated June 15, 2019, in the principal amount of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000), payable in monthly increments of Five Thousand ($5,000) per month (see Note 7, Weider Promissory Note, above)

 

NOTE 11 — FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

The Company adopted the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 825-10, Financial Instruments (“ASC 825-10”) on January 1, 2008. ASC 825-10 defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required or permitted to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which it would transact and considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions, and risk of nonperformance. ASC 825-10 establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 825-10 establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of fair value of assets or liabilities.

 

All items required to be recorded or measured on a recurring basis are based upon level 3 inputs.

 

To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, for disclosure purposes, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement is disclosed and is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Our Ability to Continue as a Going Concern

 

Our independent registered public accounting firm has issued its report dated March 13, 2019, in connection with the audit of our annual financial statements as of December 31, 2018, that included an explanatory paragraph describing the existence of conditions that raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern and Note 2 to the unaudited financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2019 also describes the existence of conditions that raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Overview

 

We are an enterprise in the regenerative medicine/cellular therapy industry. We are focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of cell based therapeutics that prevent, treat or cure disease by repairing and replacing damaged or aged tissue, cells and organs, and restoring their normal function. Our business includes the development of proprietary cell therapy products as well as revenue generating physician and patient based regenerative medicine/cell therapy training services, revenues realized from an Asset Sale and Lease Agreement (See Notes 3 and  6 of the Financial Statements and description below) related to the segment of our company business involving collecting, growing and banking cell cultures treatment kits for humans and animals, and the operation of a cell therapy clinic.

 

US Stem Cell Training, Inc. (“SCT”), an operating division of our company, is a content developer of regenerative medicine/cell therapy informational and training materials for physicians and patients. SCT also provides in-person and online training courses which are delivered through in-person presentations at SCT’s state of the art facilities and globally at university, hospital and physician’s office locations as well as through online webinars. Additionally, SCT provides hands-on clinical application training for physicians and health care professionals interested in providing regenerative medicine / cell therapy procedures.

 

Vet biologics, (“VBI”), an operating division of our company, is a veterinary regenerative medicine company committed to providing veterinarians with the ability to deliver the highest quality regenerative medicine therapies to dogs, cats and horses. VBI provides veterinarians with extensive regenerative medicine capabilities including the ability to isolate regenerative stem cells from a patient’s own adipose (fat) tissue directly on-site within their own clinic or stall-side.

 

US Stem Cell Clinic, LLC, (“SCC”), Regenerative Wellness Clinic, LLC, and US Stem Cell Clinic of the Villages, LLC are partially owned investment of our company (in which we have a 49.9%, 49.9% and 49% respectively member interests), are physician run regenerative medicine/cell therapy clinics providing cellular treatments for patients afflicted with neurological, autoimmune, orthopedic and degenerative diseases. They are operating in compliance with the FDA 1271s which allow for same day medical procedures to be considered the practice of medicine. We isolate stem cells from bone marrow and adipose tissue and also utilize platelet rich plasma.

 

Our comprehensive map of products and services:

 

 

All living complex organisms start as a single cell that replicates, differentiates (matures) and perpetuates in an adult organism through its lifetime. Cellular therapy is the process that uses cells to prevent, treat or cure disease, or regenerate damaged or aged tissue. To date, the most common type of cell therapy has been the replacement of mature, functioning cells such as through blood and platelet transfusions. Since the 1970s, first bone marrow and then blood and umbilical cord-derived stem cells have been used to restore bone marrow, as well as blood and immune system cells damaged by the chemotherapy and radiation that are used to treat many cancers. These types of cell therapies are standard of practice world-wide and are typically reimbursed by insurance.

 

 

Within the field of cell therapy, research and development using stem cells to treat a host of diseases and conditions has greatly expanded. Stem cells (in either embryonic or adult forms) are primitive and undifferentiated cells that have the unique ability to transform into or otherwise affect many different cells, such as white blood cells, nerve cells or heart muscle cells. Our cell therapy development efforts are focused on the use of adult stem cells; those cells which are found in the muscle, fat tissue and peripheral blood.

 

There are two general classes of cell therapies: Patient Specific Cell Therapies (“PSCTs”) and Off-the-Shelf Cell Therapies (“OSCTs”). In PSCTs, cells collected from a person (“donor”) are transplanted, with or without modification, to a patient (“recipient”). In cases where the donor and the recipient are the same individual, these procedures are referred to as “autologous”. In cases in which the donor and the recipient are not the same individual, these procedures are referred to as “allogeneic.” Autologous cells offer a low likelihood of rejection by the patient and we believe the long-term benefits of these PSCTs can best be achieved with an autologous product. In the case of OSCT, donor cells are expanded many fold in tissue culture, and large banks of cells are frozen in individual aliquots that may result in treatments for as many as 10,000 people from a single donor tissue. By definition, OSCTs are always allogeneic in nature.

 

Various adult stem cell therapies are in clinical development for an array of human diseases, including autoimmune, oncologic, neurologic and orthopedic, among other indications. While no assurances can be given regarding future medical developments, we believe that the field of cell therapy holds the promise to better the human experience and minimize or ameliorate the pain and suffering from many common diseases and/or from the process of aging.

 

According to the November 1, 2016 report, Scalar Market Research Stem Cell Therapy Analysis Global Revenue, Trends, Growth, Share, Size and Forecast to 2022, the stem cell therapy market is worth USD 11.99 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 60.94 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 31.1% from 2016 to 2022.

 

Specific to cellular therapy, we are focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cellular therapies for the treatment of chronic and acute heart damage as well as vascular and autoimmune diseases.

 

In our pipeline, we have multiple product candidates for the treatment of heart damage, including MyoCell and MyoCell SDF-1. MyoCell and MyoCell SDF-1 are autologous muscle-derived cellular therapies designed to populate regions of scar tissue within a patient’s heart with new living cells for the purpose of improving cardiac function in chronic heart failure patients.

 

MyoCell SDF-1 is intended to be an improvement to MyoCell. MyoCell SDF-1 is similar to MyoCell but the myoblast cells to be injected for use in MyoCell SDF-1 are modified prior to injection by an adenovirus vector or non-viral vector so that they will release extra quantities of the SDF-1 protein, which expresses angiogenic factors.

 

AdipoCell is a kit used to isolate a patient-derived cell therapy proposed for the treatment of a variety of degenerative diseases. We hope to demonstrate that these product candidates are safe and effective complements to existing therapies for a variety of diseases.

 

Our mission is to advance to market novel regenerative medicine and cellular therapy products that substantially benefit humankind. Our business strategy is, to the extent possible, finance our clinical development pipeline through revenue (cash in-flows) generated through the marketing and sales of unique educational and training services, animal health products and personalized cellular therapeutic treatments.

 

A fundamental shift in venture capital investment strategies where, management believes, financial sponsorship is now directed toward commercial or near commercial enterprises has required us to adapt our mission combining immediate revenue generating opportunities with longer-term development programs. Accordingly, we have developed a multifaceted portfolio of revenue generating products and services in our US Stem Cell Training, Vetbiologics, and US Stem Cell Clinic/Regenerative Wellness Clinic, operating divisions that will, if successful, financially support its clinical development programs. Our goal is to maximize shareholder value through the generation of short-term profits that increase cash in-flows and decrease the need for venture financings – a modern biotechnology company development strategy.

 

 

Today, our company is a combination of opportunistic business enterprises. What we are establishing is a foundation of value in the products and services we are and plan to sell from US Stem Cell Training, Vetbiologics, and US Stem Cell clinics. Our strategy is to expand the revenues generated from each of these operating divisions and to reinvest the profits we generate into our clinical development pipeline.

 

On November 9, 2016, we executed a Commercial Agency Agreement with High Rising Group Company (General Trading and Construction) and subsequently, on February 10,  2017, we authorized High Rising Group Company as an independent contractor and Licensee for our company for the territories of Kuwait and the Middle East (expressly excluding prohibited countries pursuant to the Patriot Act and The Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012). The intent of the agreement is for High Rising Group Company to establish clinics specializing in regenerative medicine, stem cell treatment and therapy, including stem cell bank, training, and all related stem cell machines and equipment.  To date, the first clinic in Kuwait City has been completed but has not begun operations as High Rising Group has not yet been able to secure regulatory approvals to operate. With the ongoing construction of the The Sheikha Salwa Sabah Al-Ahmad Center for Stem Cell and Umbilical Cord, a public/private partnership with the government of Kuwait, (see http://news.kuwaittimes.net/website/stem-cell-center-epitomizes-ppp which is expressly not incorporated by reference to this filing), management hopes (but cannot guarantee) that private sector stem cell centers, as described above, will get regulatory approval.

 

On January 29, 2015 we announced an update and diversification of our clinical development pipeline. Our cardiovascular and vascular product candidates have been streamlined, putting, we believe, our best opportunities at the forefront of our efforts. The MYOCELL and MYOCELL SDF-1 candidates will, in our opinion, advance forward in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). We are in active prospective partnering discussion for the MYOCELL SDF-1 program. Partnering, we contend, will enhance our capabilities, reduce our development cost through cost sharing and potentially accelerate our time to approval and commercialization. We will apply our ADIPOCELL to a variety of indications. We believe that updating and diversifying our clinical development programs increases the probability of our success, brings operational and fiscal clarity to our company, and will ultimately enhance shareholder value.

 

On March 3, 2017, we entered into an asset sale and lease agreement (sale/leaseback transaction; “Asset Sale and Lease Agreement”), with GACP (General American Capital Partners) Stem Cell Bank LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“GACP”) whereby we sold certain lab, medical and other equipment relating to the cell banking business for $400,000 and leased back the sold equipment over a three year term.  The lease includes a base monthly rental payment of $20,000, due the first day of each calendar month.  In addition, we are required to pay 2.3%, 22.5% and 31.6% of revenues collected on deposits arising from cell banking business for years 1, 2 and 3, respectively.  At the expiration of the lease, we are required to return all leased equipment and along with any maintenance records, logs, etc. in our possession to the lessor with no right of repurchase. In addition, GACP has contractually agreed to invest an additional Two and a half Million Dollars ($2,500,000) to open ten (10) stem cell clinics in the United States within 3 years--with a penalty provision to our benefit for shortfalls if less than 6 clinics are opened within 24 months.

 

As of June 30, 2019 (effective May 9, 2018), pursuant to an Amendment to Asset Sale and Lease Agreement, dated June 18, 2018, GACP has suspended their obligation to open additional clinics (tolling such obligation to a mutually agreeable date in the future) and has suspended the monthly aggregate number of stem cell kits set forth for purchase in a given month arising from such clinics. All other terms and conditions of the agreements between U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. and GACP remain in full force and effect.

 

Recently, the June 25, 2019 Order of Permanent Injunction arising from the action brought by the Department of Justice (see Note 11 of the Financial Statements and Part II, Item 1 herein), has resulting in management considering modifications to our business model in order to offset the loss of revenue resulting from the consequences of this Injunctive Order. As of the date herein, no specific undertakings have commenced. Since the Court’s issuance of the Order of Permanent Injunction, we have received demand letters for compensation from persons who store their SVF Product and/or other tissue product with the tissue bank (several of the persons have requested refunds of the monies paid to the tissue bank and one person has requested a full refund of monies paid to an altogether separate company due to her not receiving the full amount of treatments she requested; such requests for compensation, to date, have not been material) and requests that we preserve cells in our possession.

 

 

We will continue to evaluate and act upon opportunities to increase our top line revenue position and that correspondingly increase cash in-flows. These opportunities include but are not limited to the development and marketing of new products and services, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, licensing deals and more.

 

Further, if the opportunity presents itself whereby we can raise additional capital at a reasonable fair market value, our management will do so. Accordingly, we plan to continue in our efforts to restructure, equitize or eliminate legacy balance sheet issues that are obstacles to market capitalization appreciation and capital fund raising.

 

Results of Operations Overview

 

We are a research and development company and our MyoCell product candidate has not received regulatory approval or generated any material revenues and is not expected generate revenues until commercialization  , if ever. We have generated substantial net losses and negative cash flow from operations since inception and anticipate incurring significant net losses and negative cash flows from operations for the foreseeable future as we continue clinical trials, undertake new clinical trials, apply for regulatory approvals, make capital expenditures, add information systems and personnel, make payments pursuant to our license agreements upon our achievement of certain milestones, continue development of additional product candidates using our technology, establish sales and marketing capabilities and incur the additional cost of operating as a public company.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Stock-based compensation reflects our recognition as an expense of the value of stock options and other equity instruments issued to our employees and non-employees over the vesting period of the options and other equity instruments. We have granted to our employees options to purchase shares of common stock at exercise prices equal to the fair market value of the underlying shares of common stock at the time of each grant, as determined by our Board of Directors, with input from management.

 

We follow Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 718-10. Compensation (“ASC 718-10”) which requires that all share-based payments to both employee and non-employees be recognized in the income statement based on their fair values.

 

 

In awarding our common stock, our Board of Directors considered a number of factors, including, but not limited to:

 

our financial position and historical financial performance;

arm’s length sales of our common stock;

the development status of our product candidates;

the business risks we face;

vesting restrictions imposed upon the equity awards; and

an evaluation and benchmark of our competitors; and

prospects of a liquidity event.

 

On April 1, 2013, the Board of Directors approved, subject to subsequently received shareholder approval, the establishment of the Bioheart 2013 Omnibus Equity Compensation Plan, or the “2013 Omnibus Plan”. The 2013 Omnibus Plan initially reserved up to fifty thousand (50,000) shares of common stock for issuance. On August 4, 2014, the Board of Directors approved to set the reserve to one hundred thousand (100,000) shares of common stock for issuance and to close the 1999 Officers and Employees Stock Option Plan. On February 2, 2015, at the annual meeting of shareholders, the majority of shareholders approved the 2013 Omnibus Equity Compensation Plan. On November 2, 2015, the Board of Directors approved the increase of the reserve under the 2013 Omnibus Plan to five hundred million (500,000,000) shares of common stock for issuance, effective September 16, 2016, approved an addition of twenty five million (25,000,000) shares of common stock to the reserve, effective April 21, 2017, approved an addition of twenty five million (25,000,000) shares of common stock to the reserve, effective August 7, 2017, approved an addition of thirty million (30,000,000) shares of common stock to the reserve and effective May 7, 2018, approved an addition of one hundred million (100,000,000) shares of common stock to reserve.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

 

Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. While our critical accounting policies are described in Note 1 to our financial statements appearing elsewhere in this report, we believe the following policies are important to understanding and evaluating our reported financial results:

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific revenue recognition guidance throughout the Industry Topics of the Accounting Standards Codification. The updated guidance states 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. The guidance also provides for additional disclosures with respect to revenues and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.

 

At the time of each transaction, management assesses whether the fee associated with the transaction is fixed or determinable and whether or not collection is reasonably assured. The assessment of whether the fee is fixed or determinable is based upon the payment terms of the transaction. Collectability is assessed based on a number of factors, including past transaction history with the client and the creditworthiness of the client.

 

The Company’s primary sources of revenue are from the sale of test kits and equipment, training services, patient treatments, laboratory services and cell banking. 

 

 

Revenues for kits and equipment sold are not recorded until kits and equipment are received by the customer. Revenues from in-person trainings are recognized when the training occurs and revenues from on demand online trainings are recognized when the customer purchases the rights to the training course. Any cash received as a deposit for trainings are recorded by the Company as a liability.

 

Patient treatments and laboratory services revenue are recognized when those services have been completed or satisfied.

 

Revenues for cell banking sales are accounted for as multiple performance obligations as described in ASC 606 and addresses accounting for arrangements that may involve the delivery or performance of multiple products, services and/or rights to use assets. Because the Company sells its services separately, on more than a limited basis and at a price within a narrow range, the Company was able to allocate revenue based on stand-alone pricing. The multiple performance obligations include stem cell banking, dose retrieval and yearly storage fees. Revenues for stem cell banking and dose retrieval is recognized at the point of service and revenues for the yearly storage fees is recognized over the term of the banking contract, which is typically one year with annual renewals.

 

Research and Development Activities

 

We account for research and development costs in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 730-10, Research and Development (“ASC 730-10”). Under ASC 730-10, all research and development costs must be charged to expense as incurred. Accordingly, internal research and development costs are expensed as incurred. Third-party research and development costs are expensed when the contracted work has been performed or as milestone results have been achieved as defined under the applicable agreement. Our company-sponsored research and development costs related to both present and future products are expensed in the period incurred.

 

Inflation

 

Our opinion is that inflation has not had, and is not expected to have, a material effect on our operations.

 

Climate Change

 

Our opinion is that neither climate change, nor governmental regulations related to climate change, have had, or are expected to have, any material effect on our operations.

Recent Accounting Policies 

 

There are various other updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or application to specific industries and are not expected to a have a material impact on our  financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

In the three months ended June 30, 2019, we incurred negative cash flow from operations of $535,807 and will continue to finance our considerable operational cash needs with cash generated from financing activities and revenues.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $535,807 in the six month period ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $668,218 of cash provided in the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Our cash used in for operations in the six months ended June 30, 2019 reflected a net loss generated during the period of $1,512,344, adjusted for non-cash items such as stock-based compensation of $411,932, depreciation of $103,304, amortization of debt discounts and non-cash interest of $94,557, bad debts of $19,321 and loss on settlement of debt of $11,311 and promissory note issued in pre-trial settlement of $500,000, net with gain on sale of property and equipment of $64,423 and income from investments of $127,256. In addition we had a net decrease in operating assets of $36,062 and a decrease in accrued expenses of $72,748 and deferred revenue of $131,415, net with increase accounts payable of $195,902.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash provided by investing activities was $166,833 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 represented proceeds from our equity investment as compared to cash provided by investing activities of $109,000 from our equity investments for the same period last year.

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash used in financing activities was an aggregate of $400,648 in the six month period ended June 30, 2019 as compared to cash used of $94,402 in the six month period ended in June 30, 2018. In the six month period ended June 30, 2019, we received $90,000 from advances from related party, net with repayments of notes payable of $232,396 and $258,252 related party notes.

 

Existing Capital Resources and Future Capital Requirements

 

Our MyoCell product candidate has not received regulatory approval or generated any material revenues. We do not expect to generate any material revenues or cash from sales of our MyoCell product candidate until commercialization of MyoCell, if ever. We have generated substantial net losses and negative cash flow from operations since inception and anticipate incurring significant net losses and negative cash flows from operations for the foreseeable future. Historically, we have relied on proceeds from the sale of our common stock and our incurrence of debt to provide the funds necessary to conduct our research and development activities and to meet our other cash needs.

 

At June 30, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $587,524. However our working capital deficit as of such date was approximately $7.1 million.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

Not required under Regulation S-K for “smaller reporting companies.”

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As required under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), we carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2019. Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Accounting Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2019 were not effective, for the same reasons as previously disclosed under Item 9A. “Controls and Procedures” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. 

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-(f) of the Exchange Act) that occurred during the our last fiscal quarter to which this report relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

 

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

On December 12, 2017, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Jeannine Mallard v. U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., US Stem Cell Clinic, LLC., Regenestem, LLC., Regenestem Network, LLC., and Kristin C. Comella. The Company will continue to defend it vigorously. Trial is set for the trial calendar running from January 6, 2020 through March 20, 2020.

 

On September 17, 2015, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Patsy Bade v. Bioheart, Inc. US Stem Cell Clinics LLC, Alejandro Perez, ARNP, and Shareen Greenbaum, M.D., and on November 30, 2015, a product liability lawsuit was filed in Broward County, specifically Elizabeth Noble v. Bioheart, Inc. US Stem Cell Clinics LLC, Alejandro Perez, ARNP, and Shareen Greenbaum, M.D. During the year ended December 31, 2016, both matters settled by the Company’s insurance policy with no additional cost to the Company, excluding the Company payment of the $100,000 insurance company deductible of which $11,000 was paid in fiscal 2017. As a result of the final settlement and determination of insurance coverage, the Company recognized $100,000 of expense due to litigation for the year ended December 31, 2017, of which $89,000 is included in accrued expenses at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

The Company is subject at times to other legal proceedings and claims, which arise in the ordinary course of its business.  Although occasional adverse decisions or settlements may occur, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters should not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity.  There was no outstanding litigation as of December 31, 2018 other than that described above.

 

SEC Investigation

 

On or about March 1, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), Miami Regional Office (“Commission Staff”), served a subpoena upon U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., which seeks the production of certain documents and communications. The Commission Staff is conducting a formal, non-public, fact-finding inquiry of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (“Investigation”).  The Investigation is neither an allegation of wrongdoing nor a finding that any violation of law has occurred.  The Company is cooperating with, and has provided information and documents to, the Commission Staff.  

 

As part of the Investigation, on or about May 14, 2018, the Commission Staff served subpoenas upon Kristin Comella and Mike Tomas, respectively, seeking the production of certain documents and communications. Ms. Comella and Mr. Tomas responded to the respective subpoenas and provided information and documents to the Commission Staff.

 

In a letter dated May 30, 2019, the Commission Staff advised U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. that the Investigation has been concluded and, as of this date, the Commission Staff does not intend to recommend to the Commission an enforcement action against the Company. The Commission’s Staff’s notice to the Company was provided under the guidelines set out in the final paragraph of Securities Act Release No. 5310.

 

Government Claim

 

On May 9, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice filed an injunctive action, specifically United States of America v. U.S. Stem Clinic, LLC, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., Kristin C. Comella, and Theodore Gradel. The Complaint alleges, among other matters that the defendants manufacture “stromal vascular fraction” (SVF) products from patient adipose (fat) tissue, which the companies then market as stem cell-based treatments, and which U.S. Stem Cell Clinic, LLC administers to patients, without first obtaining what the government alleges are necessary FDA approvals. Although Theodore Gradel was initially listed as a defendant, he subsequently entered into a consent agreement and is no longer party to this case

 

The U.S. and the defendants filed cross motions for summary judgment, each asking for a ruling in its favor. On June 3, 2019, the Court entered an order granting Summary Judgment for the government and denying the defendants’ motion for summary judgment. The order focused on the defendants’ actions in providing and marketing SVF therapy. The Court further ordered that the defendants (U.S. Stem Clinic, LLC, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., and Kristin C. Comella, [ ‘not sell, provide or otherwise engage in any SVF therapy or any other activities to be regulated by the FDA as explained in the Court’s Order on the Parties’ Motions for Summary Judgment.”

 

 

On June 25, 2019, the Court entered an Order of Permanent Injunction as to the Company and others.  Among other prohibitions, the injunction also prohibits the Company, as the operator of a tissue bank, from providing banked tissue and cells derived from SVF procedures to its clients or their doctors. On July 19, 2019, the Court entered an order staying the destruction requirements of its Injunction as to the banked SVF cells and tissues, pending an appeal by the Company and resolution of these issues by an appellate court, or if no appeal, upon the expiration of the deadline to appeal. The Company is preparing to appeal this decision and, in the interim, has complied with the requirements of the Court Order. The Company is not able to predict the duration, scope, results, or consequences of the summary judgment.  There can be no assurance that this matter will be resolved in a manner that is not adverse to the Company.
