1. Organization
Description of Business
On January 15, 2014, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. named Ekso Acquisition Corp. merged with and into Ekso Bionics, Inc. (the “Merger”). Ekso Bionics, Inc. was the surviving corporation and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. As a result of this transaction, Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. discontinued its pre-merger operations, acquired the business of Ekso Bionics, Inc. and continues the operations of Ekso Bionics, Inc. as a publicly traded company. See Note 3, The Merger, Offering and Other Related Matters. Ekso Bionics, Inc. was incorporated in January 2005 in the State of Delaware.
As used in these notes to the consolidated financial statements, the term “the Company” refers to Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. formerly known as PN Med Group, Inc., and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, including Ekso Bionics, Inc. after giving effect to the Merger; the term “Holdings” refers to the business of Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. prior to the Merger, and the term “Ekso Bionics” refers to Ekso Bionics, Inc. prior to the Merger. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar and share amounts included in these notes to the financial statements are in thousands.
The Company designs, develops, and sells exoskeletons that augment human strength, endurance and mobility. The Company’s exoskeletons have applications in health care, industrial, military, and consumer markets.
Largely as a result of significant research and development activities related to the development of the Company’s advanced technology and commercialization of this technology into its medical device business, the Company has incurred significant operating losses and negative cash flows from operations since inception. The Company has also recognized significant non-cash losses associated with the revaluation of certain securities, which have also contributed significantly to its accumulated deficit. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $91,391.
Cash on hand at December 31, 2015 was $19,552, compared to $25,190 at December 31, 2014. For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company used $18,269 of cash in operations compared to $15,007 for the year ended December 31, 2014.
Based upon the Company’s current twelve-month average monthly net use of cash of approximately $1,520 and assuming increases in current revenue, offset by incremental net use of cash for increased sales and marketing and research and development, and a potential increase in rental activity from its medical device business, the Company believes it has sufficient resources to meet its financial obligations into the first quarter of 2017.
The Company’s actual capital requirements may vary significantly and will depend on many factors. For example, the Company plans to continue to increase its investments (i) in its clinical, sales and marketing initiatives to accelerate adoption of the Ekso robotic exoskeleton in the rehabilitation market, (ii) in its research, development and commercialization activities with respect to an Ekso robotic exoskeleton for home use, and/or (iii) in the development and commercialization of able-bodied exoskeletons for industrial use. Consequently, the Company will require significant additional financing in the future, which the Company intends to raise through corporate collaborations, public or private equity offerings, debt financings or warrant solicitations within the next two to four quarters. Sales of additional equity securities by us could result in the dilution of the interests of existing stockholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available when required in sufficient amounts, on acceptable terms or at all. In the event that the necessary additional financing is not obtained, the Company may be required to reduce its discretionary overhead costs substantially, including research and development, general and administrative, and sales and marketing expenses or otherwise curtail operations.
