|Substantial Doubt about Going Concern [Text Block]||
As disclosed in the notes to the financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company has been engaged in litigation with Platinum-Montaur Life Sciences LLC (“Platinum-Montaur”), an affiliate of Platinum Management (NY) LLC, Platinum Partners Value Arbitrage Fund L.P., Platinum Partners Capital Opportunity Fund, Platinum Partners Liquid Opportunity Master Fund L.P., Platinum Liquid Opportunity Management (NY) LLC, and Montsant Partners LLC (collectively, “Platinum”), in which Platinum-Montaur was seeking damages of approximately $1.9 million plus interest. See Note 11.
In addition, the Company is engaged in ongoing litigation with our former President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Michael Goldberg. See Note 11.
The Company has also been engaged in ongoing litigation with Capital Royalty Partners II L.P. (“CRG”) and pursuing recovery of approximately $4.3 million and other damages. See Note 11.
On August 30, 2020, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Common Stock Purchase Agreement”) with each of the investors named therein (the “Investors”), pursuant to which the Investors agreed to purchase from the Company, up to $25.0 million in shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”). As of the date of filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we have received only $25,000 of the $5.0 million that is currently owed under the Common Stock Purchase Agreement. During the second quarter of 2021, the Company determined that it is unlikely that the remaining $4.975 million will ever be collected. Accordingly, the common stock subscription receivable was reversed from the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2021. We are continuing to evaluate our rights and remedies under that agreement. See Note 12.
On August 31, 2020, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement and Letter of Investment Intent (the “Series D Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement”) with Keystone Capital Partners, LLC (“Keystone”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue to Keystone 150,000 shares of newly-designated Series D Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series D Preferred Stock”) for an aggregate purchase price of $15.0 million. Pursuant to the Series D Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, Keystone agreed to purchase Series D Preferred Stock in amounts to be determined by Keystone in one or more closings before the end of the nine-month period following the date when the Company’s prospectus supplement to its existing registration statement on Form S-3 was filed with the SEC. On July 8, 2021 (the “Amendment Effective Date”), the Company entered into an Amendment to Stock Purchase Agreement and Letter of Investment Intent (the “Series D Amendment”) with Keystone pursuant to which Keystone purchased 22,077 shares of Series D Preferred Stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2.2 million. Prior to the Amendment Effective Date, Keystone had purchased 72,500 shares of Series D Preferred Stock pursuant to the Series D Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, leaving a remaining balance of 77,500 shares of Series D Preferred Stock. After purchasing the 22,077 remaining shares, Keystone has no further right or obligation to purchase shares of Series D Preferred Stock. Accordingly, the Series D Preferred Stock subscription receivable was reduced to approximately $2.2 million on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2021. The Series D Preferred Stock is convertible into a maximum of 5,147,000 shares of Common Stock. See Notes 12 and 17.
On March 2, 2021, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement and Letter of Investment Intent (the “Series E Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement”) with an existing accredited investor, John K. Scott, Jr. pursuant to which the Company issued to Mr. Scott in a private placement transaction 50,000 shares of newly-designated Series E Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series E Preferred Stock”) for an aggregate purchase price of $5.0 million. The Series E Preferred Stock is convertible into a maximum of 2,173,913 shares of Common Stock. As of the date of filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q,of the Series E Preferred Stock has been converted. See Note 12.
Navidea intends to use the net proceeds from these transactions to fund its research and development programs, including continued advancement of its two Phase 2b and Phase 3 clinical trials of Tc99m tilmanocept in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (“RA”), and for general working capital purposes and other operating expenses.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) was enacted on March 27, 2020. Among the provisions contained in the CARES Act was the creation of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) that provides for Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Section 7(a) loans for qualified small businesses. PPP loan proceeds are available to be used to pay for payroll costs, including salaries, commissions, and similar compensation, group health care benefits, and paid leaves; rent; utilities; and interest on certain other outstanding debt. On May 18, 2020, Fifth Third Bank (the “Lender”) funded a loan to the Company in the amount of $366,000 under the SBA’s PPP (the “PPP Loan”). In accordance with the loan forgiveness requirements of the CARES Act, the Company used the proceeds from the PPP Loan primarily for payroll costs, rent and utilities. On February 23, 2021, the Lender notified the Company that the entire PPP Loan amount of $366,000 was forgiven. See Note 9.
We do not believe there has been significant impact to the Company’s clinical development and regulatory timelines resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. However, the COVID-19 outbreak delayed enrollment in our NAV3-32 clinical study in the United Kingdom due to national COVID-19-related shutdowns. In addition, the regulatory approval process in India has been delayed by the impact of COVID-19 in that country.
The Company has experienced recurring net losses and has used significant cash to fund its operations. The Company has considerable discretion over the extent of development project expenditures and has the ability to curtail the related cash flows as needed. The Company also has funds remaining under outstanding grant awards, and continues working to establish new sources of funding, including collaborations, potential equity investments, and additional grant funding that can augment the balance sheet. However, based on our current working capital and our projected cash burn, management believes that there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. No adjustments have been made to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements as a result of this uncertainty.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
