2. Liquidity

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $38,883,569 in cash. Since inception, the Company has experienced net losses and negative cash flows from operations each fiscal year. The Company has no revenues and expects to continue to incur operating losses for the foreseeable future, and may never become profitable. The Company is dependent on its ability to continue to raise equity and/or debt financing to continue operations. On August 23, 2021, the Company completed a private placement (the “Private Placement”) and issued 2,727,273 shares of common stock for a purchase price of $11.00 per share and Preferred Investment Options (the “Preferred Investment Options”, and, collectively with the shares of common stock issued under the Private Placement, the “Securities”) to purchase up to an aggregate of 2,727,273 shares of common stock for a purchase price of $12.00. The aggregate gross proceeds to the Company from the Private Placement were approximately $30,000,000, before deducting placement agent fees and other offering expenses. Accordingly, the Company believes that it currently has sufficient funds and, if necessary, the ability to reduce expenditures, to support operations through the next twelve months from the date the condensed consolidated financial statements are issued. The Company cannot make any assurances that additional financings will be available to it and, if available, on acceptable terms or at all. This could negatively impact the Company’s business and operations and could also lead to the reduction of the Company’s operations.

COVID-19 Outbreak

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (“WHO”) announced a global health emergency because of a new strain of coronavirus originating in Wuhan, China (the “COVID-19 Outbreak”) and the risks to the international community as the virus spreads globally beyond its point of origin. In March 2020, the WHO classified the COVID-19 Outbreak as a pandemic, based on the rapid increase in exposure globally.

Aside from our COVID-19 related trials, as a result of the COVID-19 Outbreak, most of our other trials have been halted. Except as otherwise discussed in the preceding sentence and otherwise in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, there have been no material changes or impact of COVID-19 on our business. However, the full impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak continues to evolve as of the date hereof. If the COVID-19 Outbreak continues, it may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, liquidity, and future results of operations. Management is actively monitoring the impact of the global pandemic on its financial condition, liquidity, operations, industry, and workforce.
