Note 2 – Liquidity and Financial Condition


Under ASU, 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40) (“ASC 205-40”), the Company has the responsibility to evaluate whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about its ability to meet its future financial obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. As required by ASC 205-40, this evaluation shall initially not take into consideration the potential mitigating effects of plans that have not been fully implemented as of the date the financial statements are issued. Management has assessed the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in accordance with the requirement of ASC 205-40.


As reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company had a working capital deficit and an accumulated deficit of $30 million and $191.0 million, respectively, at September 30, 2018. In addition, the Company had a loss from operations of approximately $3.9 million and cash used in operating activities of $7.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The reduced loss from operations was primarily driven by a positive change in fair value of derivative instruments in the amount of $13.7 million and a gain on bargain purchase in the amount of $7.7 million. See Note 17. The continued losses and other related factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for twelve months from the filing date of this report.


The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared assuming the Company can continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations through realization of assets, and the settling of liabilities in the normal course of business. Initial cost savings were realized by reducing the number of laboratory facilities to one for most of its toxicology diagnostics, thereby reducing the number of employees and associated operating expenses. During 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to spinoff Advanced Molecular Services Group (“AMSG”) and Health Technology Solutions, Inc. (“HTS”), as independent publicly traded companies by way of tax-free distributions to its shareholders. Completion of these spinoffs is expected to occur during the second half of 2018. The spinoffs are subject to numerous conditions, including effectiveness of Registration Statements on Form 10 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and consents, including under various funding agreements previously entered by the Company. The intent of the spinoffs of AMSG and HTS is to create three public companies, each of which can focus on its own strengths and operational plans. In accordance with ASC 205-20 and having met the criteria for “held for sale”, the Company has reflected amounts relating to AMSG and HTS as disposal groups classified as held for sale and included as part of discontinued operations. AMSG and HTS are no longer included in the segment reporting following the reclassification to discontinued operations. The discontinued operations of AMSG and HTS are described further in Note 18.


During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company completed several private placement offerings with institutional investors for $9.9 million in principal less original issue discounts of an aggregate of $1.9 million and received proceeds totaling $8,000,000. As more fully discussed in Note 20, from October 1, 2018 to November 9, 2018, the Company completed additional private placement offerings for $1.2 million in principal and received $1 million in total proceeds.


There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to achieve its business plan, raise any additional capital or secure the additional financing necessary to implement its current operating plan. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to significantly reduce its operating costs, increase its revenues, and eventually regain profitable operations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
