Kedem Pharmaceuticals Inc.

(A Development Stage Company)

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

February 29, 2012

 

1. Development Stage Company

 

Kedem Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on April 25, 2006 under the name Acting Scout Inc. The Company changed its name to Goldtown Investments Corp. on September 20, 2007 and on October 6, 2008 changed its name to Global Health Ventures Inc. On September 23, 2011, the Company completed a merger with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Kedem Pharmaceuticals Inc., and formally assumed the subsidiary’s name by filing Articles of Merger with the Nevada Secretary of State. The Company is located in British Columbia, Canada. The Company is a development stage specialty pharmaceutical company that is in the business of acquiring and licensing current outstanding and promising healthcare related technologies for further development and re-licensing to major pharmaceutical companies. The Company is a Development Stage Company, as defined under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915 “Development Stage Entities”.

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated significant revenues since inception and has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations and the attainment of profitable operations. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. As at February 29, 2012, the Company has never generated any significant revenue and has accumulated losses of $13,902,901 since inception. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s common stock trades on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (“OTCBB”) under the symbol “KDMP”.

 

2.(i) Changes in Presentation

 

a) Name Change

 

On September 23, 2011, the Company completed a merger with its wholly owned subsidiary, Kedem Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and formally assumed the subsidiary’s name by filing Articles of Merger with the Nevada Secretary of State. The subsidiary was incorporated entirely for the purpose of effecting the name change and the merger did not affect the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or corporate structure in any other way.

 

The name change became effective in the market at the open of business on November 7, 2011. At that time, the Company’s common stock became eligible for quotation on the OTCBB under the name Kedem Pharmaceuticals Inc. and the trading symbol “GHLVD”. On December 20, 2011, the trading symbol changed permanently to “KDMP.”

 

b) Reverse Stock Split

 

On September 26, 2011, the Company completed a 1 for 20 reverse stock split of its common stock and effected a corresponding decrease in its authorized share capital by filing of a Certificate of Change with the Nevada Secretary of State. The reverse stock split became effective in the market at the open of business on November 7, 2011. Par value of the common stock of $0.0001 remains unchanged. Share and per share amounts reflected throughout these consolidated financial statements and related notes have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split.

 

2.(ii) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

a) Basis of Presentation

 

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), and are expressed in U.S. dollars. These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly owned subsidiary, Posh Cosmeceuticals Ltd. (“Posh”), and its inactive wholly-owned subsidiary, Global Health (BC) Ventures Inc.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

b) Interim Financial Statements

 

These interim unaudited financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown. The results of operations for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for a full year or for any future period. These financial statements should be used in conjunction with the Company’s annual audited financial statements.

 

c) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses in the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to deferred income tax asset valuation allowance, depreciation of property, plant and equipment, stock based compensation, convertible debt, and valuation of patents and medical licenses. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

 

d) Basic and Diluted Net Income (loss) Per Share

 

The Company computes net income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings per Share”. ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti dilutive. All EPS calculations presented give effect to the reverse stock split.

 

e) Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 605 “Revenue Recognition”. The Company has never generated any revenue since inception.

 

f) Comprehensive Loss

 

ASC 220, “Comprehensive Income”, establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the financial statements.

 

g) Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

 

h) Property, Plant and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is provided annually at rates calculated to write off the assets over their estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Laboratory equipment 20% diminishing balance
Computer hardware 45% diminishing balance
Office furniture and fixtures 20% diminishing balance
Office machines and equipment 20% diminishing balance
Leasehold improvements 20% straight-line

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

h) Property, Plant and Equipment (continued)

 

In the year of acquisition, these rates are reduced by one-half.

 

i) Medical Technology Licenses

 

The Company amortizes the cost of acquired medical technology licenses over the lesser of the license term or the estimated period of benefit. The term of the current medical license is the later of the date on which all the licensed patents have expired or been revoked without a right of further appeal, and the date on which the marketing for the license agreements and the licenses granted under the agreement is seized. The medical technology licenses are being amortized over seven years.

 

j) Long-Lived Assets

 

In accordance with ASC 360 “Property, Plant and Equipment”, the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life.

 

Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value.

 

k) Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, amounts due to a related party, convertible debt, and amounts due to a shareholder. The fair value of financial instruments cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, amounts due to a related party and amounts due to a shareholder were estimated to approximate their carrying values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The carrying value of the Company’s long-term convertible debt approximates its fair value based on current market borrowing rates. Accordingly, the long-term convertible debt is classified as “Level 2” in the fair value hierarchy.

 

The Company’s operations are in Canada and the United States, resulting in exposure to market risks from changes in foreign currency rates. The financial risk is the risk to the Company’s operations that arise from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility of these rates. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk.

 

l) Income Taxes

 

The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, current taxes are recognized for the estimated income taxes payable for the current period.

 

Deferred income taxes are provided for based on the estimated future tax effects of temporary differences between financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases as well as the benefit of losses available to be carried forward to future years for tax purposes.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates that are expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be covered or settled. The effect of deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is recorded for deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that such deferred tax assets will not be realized.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

m) Foreign Currency Translation

 

The functional currency of the Company is the Canadian dollar with the reported amounts being stated in United States dollars. In accordance with ASC 830 “Foreign Currency Matters”, assets and liabilities are translated at the rates of exchange at the balance sheet dates. Income and expense items are translated at average annual rates of exchange. Foreign currency translation gains and losses are recognized in the statement of operations. Foreign currency translation adjustments are included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

 

n) Research and development costs

 

Research costs are expensed in the period incurred. Development costs are expensed in the period incurred unless the Company believes a development project meets generally accepted accounting criteria for deferral and amortization. No such costs have been deferred as at February 29, 2012 and 2011.

 

o) Stock-based Compensation

 

In accordance with ASC 718 “Stock Compensation”, the Company accounts for share-based payments using the fair value method. Shares of common stock issued to third parties for non-cash consideration are valued based on the fair market value of the services provided, or the fair market value of the common stock on the measurement date, whichever is more readily determinable.

 

Future Accounting Pronouncements

 

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) is considering timelines for the use of International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) by SEC issuers. The Company expects to adopt IFRS as its reporting standard when the SEC requires its domestic registrants in the U.S. to transition to IFRS. The Company has not assessed the impact of this potential change on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) provided amendments to achieve common fair value measurement and disclosure requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The amendments provide clarification and/or additional requirements relating to the following a) application of the highest and best use and valuation premise concepts, b) measurement of the fair value of instruments classified in an entity’s shareholders’ equity, c) measurement of the fair value of financial instruments that are managed within a portfolio, d) application of premiums and discounts in a fair value measurement, and e) disclosures about fair value measurements. These amendments will be effective prospectively for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of the amendments to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In June 2011, the FASB provided amendments requiring an entity to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a singular continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but continuous statements, eliminating the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. Additionally, the amendments require an entity to present reclassification adjustments on the face of the financial statements from other comprehensive income to net income. These amendments will be effective retrospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of the amendments to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, but will require the Company to present the statements of comprehensive income separately from its statements of equity, as these are currently presented on a combined basis.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

In December 2011, the FASB issued amended guidance to ASC 210, “Balance Sheet”, with respect to disclosure of offsetting assets and liabilities as part of the effort to establish common requirements in accordance with U.S. GAAP and IFRS. This amended guidance requires the disclosure of both gross information and net information about both financial statements and derivative instruments eligible for offset in the Company’s balance sheet and instruments and transactions subject to an agreement similar to a master netting arrangements. This guidance is effective for periods beginning on or after January 1, 2012, with respective disclosures required retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The adoption of this guidance effective January 1, 2012 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

Other pronouncements issued by the FASB, or other authoritative accounting standard groups with future effective dates, are either not applicable, or are not expected to be significant to the financial statements of the Company.

4. Convertible Debt

 

On March 19, 2010, the Company sold to one investor (the “Lender”) a $4,200,000 convertible debenture (the “Debenture”) due March 18, 2014, unless converted in accordance with the repayment terms prior to such date. The Debenture bore interest at a rate of 12% per annum payable on maturity, was unsecured and ranked equally to any of the Company’s existing and future unsecured debts.

 

The Debenture was sold with a 25% discount from face value for a net book value of $3,150,000. The $3,150,000 consisted of cash of $400,000 paid at closing and 11 investor notes in the amount of $250,000 each. The investor notes were mandatorily pre-payable in sequence, at the rate of one note per month commencing on the seven month anniversary of the closing date. As at October 27, 2011, all 11 investor notes payable under the Debenture had been received by the Company.

 

Beginning six months from the closing date, the Lender could require the Company to repay the principal amount of the Debenture plus accrued interest, in full or in part, in fully-paid and non-assessable shares of the Company’s common stock at a rate per share equal to the market price as calculated under the Securities Purchase Agreement governing the Debenture (the “Agreement”). The Lender was not permitted to deliver a request for repayment where the dollar amount of the request for repayment would exceed 125% of the amounts outstanding under the Debenture. In September 2010, the conversion price was amended, providing for an additional 10% discount to the market price as defined under the Agreement.

 

Events of default under the terms of the Agreement included the following:

 

a) Default of payment of interest or principal or any amount due under the Agreement;

b) Material default, misrepresentation, or material breach of the covenants described in the paragraph above;

c) Any transfer, conveyance, or assignment of substantial Company or subsidiary assets;

d) Any money judgment, writ of warrant or attachment, or similar process against the Company in excess of $100,000;

e) Failure to issue common stock within five business days of receipt of a written request for repayment of outstanding amounts in common stock;

4. Convertible Debt (continued)

 

f) The average dollar volume of common stock for any consecutive 10 day trading period falls below $40,000 per day;

g) Control of the whole or a substantial portion of the Company by any governmental agencies;

h) Order by a court adjudging the Company bankrupt or insolvent, or seeking reorganization;

i) Failure of the Company to continually maintain its status as a reporting company under federal securities laws or as a DWAC eligible issuer; and

j) Failure to timely file reports required to be filed by the SEC.

 

Upon occurrence of one of the above events, the amount due under the Debenture will be immediately due and payable at the rate of 110% of the sum of the principal outstanding immediately prior to the event of default and all interest, fees, costs and penalties. These amounts will accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum until payment.

 

On July 16, 2010, the Company had an event of default under the terms of the Debenture. The Lender waived the default, and in exchange, raised the interest rate on the Debenture from 6% per annum to 9% per annum.

 

On September 2, 2010, the Company had an event of default under the terms of the Debenture. The Lender waived the default, and in exchange, raised the interest rate on the Debenture from 9% per annum to 12% per annum and negotiated a 10% discount on the market price as defined under the agreement for all conversions of the Debenture into common stock.

 

On September 19, 2011, the Company had an event of default under the terms of the Debenture, as the Company did not maintain its DWAC eligibility. As a result of the default a forbearance agreement and exchange agreement was entered into by the Company and the Lender.

 

Pursuant to the exchange agreement, the Lender and the Company exchanged the Debenture (the “Note Exchange”) for a new secured convertible promissory note having a principal balance equal to the outstanding principal balance of the Debenture plus the sum of all accrued and unpaid interest, penalties, fees and adjustments owed under the Debenture as of October 27, 2011 minus $25,000 forgiven by the Lender. In accordance with ASC 470-50-40-4, the difference between the acquisition price of the debt and the net carrying amount of the Debenture as at October 27, 2011 was expensed in the period a loss on extinguishment of debt. The liability under the Debenture was extinguished as a result of the Note Exchange. The new secured convertible promissory note received by the Company is secured by all the assets of the Company, bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum, and has a maturity date of September 18, 2014. The new note contains a discount of $Nil.

 

On June 16, 2011, the Company sold to the Lender a convertible note (the “Note”) in the amount of $4,338,833.

4. Convertible Debt (continued)

 

i) The Company’s failure to maintain authorized but unissued shares of common stock equal to at least 200% of the number of shares of common stock that would be needed to fully convert the Note and exercise the warrant at any given time after the date that is 30 days from the date of the Note.

 

The Lender has the right to convert the outstanding balance of the Note, in whole or in part, into shares of the Company’s common stock which will be valued at the market value. As part of the transaction, the Lender also acquired warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock equal to $250,000, exercisable until June 30, 2016.

 

On September 19, 2011, the Company had an event of default under the terms of the Note. As a result of the event of default, the Company and the Lender entered into a forbearance agreement, whereby the Lender agreed to modify the Note by reducing the outstanding balance of the Note by $25,000, to extend the original maturity date of the Note by six months, and to refrain and forbear temporarily from exercising and enforcing any of its remedies against the Company resulting from the event of default.

 

Under the terms of the forbearance agreement the modified Note is secured by all the assets of the Company, the share reserve under the Note was amended to be such number of shares necessary to effect the full conversion of the Note and the exercise of the warrants, and a cross default clause was added, whereby a breach or default by the Company of any covenant or term of condition contained in (i) the Note, (ii) any of the other loan documents or (iii) any other agreements, as defined in the forbearance agreement, shall, at the option of the Lender, be considered a default under the Note, in which event the Lender shall be entitled to apply all rights and remedies of the Lender under the terms of the Note Agreement and the Note.

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, the Company received the $250,000 initial cash payment on the Note, one of the twelve investor notes, and partial payment on the second of the twelve investor notes. During the nine month period ended February 29, 2012, the Company recorded amortization of the debt discount on the Note of $383,566, which was charged to interest expense.

 

In connection with the issuance of the Debenture, the Company incurred $952,250 of issuance costs which consisted of $895,250 of non-cash costs for warrants issued to the Lender and for warrants issued as a finder’s fee and $57,000 of cash costs for commissions and related professional fees. Additional cash costs for commissions of $89,146 were incurred in the twelve month period ending May 31, 2011 and commissions of $8,716 were incurred up until the date of exchange of October 27, 2011. These costs were amortized as interest expense through to October 27, 2011, the date of extinguishment of the liability consisting of the Debenture. On October 27, 2011, the remaining unamortized balance of deferred issuance costs relating to the Debenture were expensed to the income statement, and classified as loss on extinguishment of debt.

 

As at February 29, 2012, deferred finance costs relating to the Debenture remaining on the balance sheet total $Nil. In addition, as at February 29, 2012, deferred finance costs relating to the new secured convertible promissory note exchanged for the Debenture, on October 27, 2011, total $Nil. All remaining deferred finance costs on the balance sheet as at February 29, 2012 relate to the Note.

 

In connection with the issuance of the Note, the Company incurred $261,405 of issuance costs which consisted of $241,404 of non-cash costs for warrants issued to the Lender and $20,001 of cash costs for commission and legal costs incurred on the upfront payment of the Note, received by the Company on the date of the issuance of the Note, June 16, 2011. Additional cash costs for commissions of $23,337 were incurred in the nine months ending February 29, 2012. The non cash costs consisting of $241,404 for warrants issued to the Lender are being amortized as interest expense through June 30, 2016, the maturity date of the warrants. The cash costs are being amortized as interest expense through December 14, 2015, the maturity date of the Note, as modified.

 

The Company has separately accounted for the liability and equity components of the Debenture and the Note by allocating the proceeds from the issuance of the instruments between the liability component and the beneficial conversion feature, or equity component.

Prior to the date of cancellation of the Debenture on October 27, 2011, on a cumulative basis up to this date, $2,533,331 of the principal and accrued interest was converted into common shares by the Lender. During the nine month period ended February 29, 2012, prior to the cancellation and exchange of the Debenture, the lender converted $780,527 of the interest and principal into 40,100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, and subsequent to the date of the exchange, the Lender converted $70,000 of the new secured convertible promissory note principal and interest into 750,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, for a total of $850,527 of principle and interest converted in the nine months ended February 29, 2012.

6. Deferred Financing Costs

 

On March 19, 2010, the Company sold to one investor a $4,200,000 convertible debenture due March 18, 2014. As part of the Debenture financing the Company issued share purchase warrants to purchase up to $800,000 worth of common stock and also issued warrants to purchase 100,000 (presented on a pre-reverse split basis) common shares of common stock as a finder’s fee.

 

These warrants were valued at the date of issue of the debenture, March 19, 2010, using the Black-Scholes model utilizing the following assumptions:

 

Risk-free interest rate     2.85 %
Expected term to exercise     4 years  
Expected volatility of     253 %
Expected dividend yield     0 %

 

Based on this calculation $895,250 was recorded as a deferred financing cost on the Debenture and amortized over the term of the Debenture of 48 months and charged to interest expense. On October 27, 2011, pursuant to an exchange agreement with the Lender, the Lender cancelled the Debenture, and issued a new secured convertible promissory note in its place. The remaining balance of unamortized deferred financing costs of $638,209 were expensed on the date of cancellation of the Debenture and categorized on the income statement as loss on extinguishment of debt. As at February 29, 2012, the balance of deferred financing costs relating to the Debenture on the balance sheet is $Nil.

 

On June 16, 2011, the Company sold to one investor a $4,338,833 convertible note due June 16, 2015. As part of the Note financing the Company issued share purchase warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock equal to $250,000.

11. Fair Value Measures

 

ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1

 

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2

 

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

11. Fair Value Measures (continued)

 

Level 3

 

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, amounts due to a related party, amounts due to a shareholder, and convertible debt. Pursuant to ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, the fair value of the Company’s cash is determined based on “Level 1” inputs, which consist of quoted prices in active markets for identical assets. The Company believes that the recorded values of its financial instruments accounts payable and accrued liabilities, amount due to a related party, and amounts due to a shareholder, approximate their current values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations. The Company’s convertible debt is classified as “Level 2” in the fair value hierarchy. The Company believes that the carrying value of the convertible debt approximates its fair value based on current market borrowing rates.

Certain amounts have been reclassified to conform with the presentation adopted for the current period.

Business Overview

 

We are a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops advanced next-generation drugs to displace current “blockbuster” drugs upon their loss of patent protection. Our core strength is our exclusive access to sublingual platform technology. This technology provides the foundation to design unique pharmaceuticals with properties that result in a market advantage through faster onset of action, increased availability, lower dosage, improved safety, fewer or less severe side effects, reduced dosing regiments, safer systems, taste masking and others. We believe these advantages will enable our products to establish themselves quickly in the market by displacing existing products in a relatively short period of time. Our lifestyle products are related to male sexual enhancement, anti-addiction and energy boosters.  Our therapeutic products are related to weight loss and pulmonary disease management. We work with products that are already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”), but require better or faster absorption.

 

We also plan to reformulate existing products that currently have considerable side effects when manufactured with their current chemical formulation. We intend to develop these new products internally or license them from other pharmaceutical companies. We expect to have several products under development and we plan to bring them to the stages of partnership and co-marketing. Our most advanced product, X-Excite, has been contracted out to a manufacturing company in Romania to produce exclusively for the European market. This product has been manufactured and sent to a hospital in Bulgaria for human clinical trials. The clinical trials are supervised by Clinical Investigation Limited, a contract research organization incorporated in the United Kingdom.

We are a multi-product company. Our current portfolio of products includes:

 

1. X-Excite (male sexual enhancement drug)

 

2. Relax-B (anti-stress drug)

 

3. Nico-Z (nicotine replacement product)

 

4. V-Energy (energy booster product)

 

5. T-Slim (appetite suppressor drug)

 

X-Excite

 

X-Excite is a development stage sublingual formulation of sildenafil. Sildenafil is registered under the trade name of Viagra® and is currently marketed by Pfizer under patent protection until 2012/2013 (depending on the jurisdiction). Viagra® (sildenafil citrate) is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, which is the inability to achieve or maintain a penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance.

 

Relax-B

 

This product utilizes propranolol as its active ingredient. Propranolol is an FDA approved drug for hypertension and anxiety attack prescribed worldwide. When it is used at a low dose, the product has a relaxant property and can reduce stress and anxiety. We have formulated propranolol to absorb sublingually and have used taste masking products to reduce the taste. Our plan is to develop this product once we secure further financing.

 

Nico-Z

 

Nico-Z is a sublingual formulation of nicotine designed for cigarette replacement. We are using a small dose of nicotine (about five times less than commercial nicotine) and plan to achieve a higher concentration of nicotine in the blood in a much shorter time span. The rapid absorption of nicotine will be beneficial for individuals craving cigarette or tobacco products. Nico-Z is not designed for smoking cessation.

 

V-Energy

 

This product is a sublingual formulation of vitamin B6/B12. Vitamin B6/B12 is a stimulus and anti-tiredness compound. This product is reported to be a stimulant several times more powerful than caffeine, yet does not produce the side effects of caffeine such as an increased heart rate and sleeping disorders. Vitamin B6/B12 is often used in cancer patients to help them be less tired and more energetic. Currently, vitamin B6/B12 is administered by injection or taken orally. Injection is not a convenient way for drug delivery and also carries certain risks including infection. A sublingual formulation would therefore likely be the most convenient and acceptable route of administration.

 

6
 

 

T-Slim

 

T-Slim is a novel formulation of catechin. Catechin is a flavonoid that is found in higher plants and green tea. Catechin is a major component in reducing appetite but has a poor oral absorption rate. A sublingual formulation should result in increased availability, thus, it would be most beneficial if used whenever a person feels hungry to reduce their desire for food appreciably.

 

Our primary research has been focused on developing our new formulation of drug delivery technology. We continue to improve drug bioavailability and formulations to maximize absorption. During the next 12 months, we intend to work on the formulation of our drugs, including the study and investigation of the rate of absorption into the blood stream. Further, we intend to evaluate the dose ratio between active chemicals and other ingredients. Our aim is to improve drug availability and maximize absorption, and we also intend to set out a formula for drug to body mass ratio. We plan to conduct research on other ingredients which can be used to enhance skin penetration.

 

The following sets forth information relating to the stage of development of our products:

X-Excite is our most advanced product and has been contracted out to a manufacturing company in Romania to produce exclusively for the European market. The product was manufactured in accordance with European regulatory guidelines and was sent to a hospital in Bulgaria for Phase I human clinical trials. The clinical trials were supervised by Clinical Investigation Limited, a contract research organization incorporated in the United Kingdom. The data from the clinical trials met our expectations and we plan to proceed with Phase I trials in North America in 2012. Phase III clinical trials of X-Excite are planned for 2013. We do not anticipate any hindrances to the progress of this product.

 

We plan to file to conduct Phase I clinical trials for Relax-B in 2012. Our remaining products are in the early stages of development and we are conducting research for their development.

 

License Agreement

 

On March 15, 2009, we entered into a research contract with Globe Laboratories Inc., a company incorporated in British Columbia, Canada and controlled by an individual related to Hassan Salari, our officer and director, to engage Globe to conduct research on the sublingual technologies developed by Globe.

 

7
 

 

On March 15, 2010, we entered into a License Agreement with Globe pursuant to which we acquired the exclusive use of Globe’s sublingual technology for drug delivery for our products. We agreed to pay $50,000 per quarter to Globe from April 1, 2009 until the technology is put into commercial production, or the technologies are sold or sublicensed. In addition, for each product we develop using the same formulation, we agreed to pay to Globe the following fees:

 

1. $25,000 upon the commencement of Phase I (drug safety and tolerability study);

 

2. $250,000 upon the completion of Phase I;

 

3. $1,000,000 upon the completion of Phase III (or similarly approved trials, such as 505(b)2) (drug concentration measurement in comparison to the existing formula);

 

4. $3,500,000 upon the first anniversary of sale; and

 

5. 2% of the net sales of all products licensed to us by Globe (the “Royalty Payments”).

 

All payments under the License Agreement are due within 30 days of such milestone, excluding the Royalty Payments, which are due 60 days following the end of the fiscal quarter in which the sales occur.

 

Plan of Operations

 

Our plan of operations over the next 12 months is to work on the formulation of our drugs. We anticipate that we will require approximately $1.97 million to pursue our plans over the next 12 months. We plan to obtain the necessary funds from equity or debt financings, as required.  However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain the additional financing required, or any at all.  If we are not able to obtain additional financing, we may be required to scale back our plans or eliminate them altogether.  There can be no assurance that we will achieve all of our plans, or any of them.  Our expenditures for the next 12 months, excluding the cost of clinical trials, include:

Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of our results of operations and financial condition for the three and nine months ended February 29, 2012 should be read in conjunction with our interim consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto included in this report, as well as our most recent annual report for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011.

 

Revenues

 

We have not generated any revenues from our inception on April 25, 2006 to February 29, 2012. We do not anticipate generating any revenues until we have developed our products to the point where they are suitable for commercial production. In order to generate revenues, we will incur substantial expenses in the development of our business and current products and the location and acquisition of new healthcare technologies. We therefore expect to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. We recognize that if we are unable to generate significant revenues from our activities, our entire business may fail. There is no history upon which to base any assumption as to the likelihood that we will be successful in our plan of operations, and we can provide no assurance to investors that we will generate any operating revenues or achieve profitable operations.

 

Expenses

 

For the Three Months Ended February 29, 2012

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred $530,663 in total expenses, including $142,262 in research and development costs, $197,785 in salaries and wages, $46,251 in professional fees, $118,836 in general and administrative expenses, $14,643 in depreciation expenses and $10,886 in amortization expenses. During the three months ended February 28, 2011, we incurred total expenses of $464,547, including $192,244 in research and development costs, $132,337 in salaries and wages, $31,063 in professional fees, $99,198 in general and administrative expenses and $9,705 in depreciation expenses. The increase in our total expenses between the two periods was primarily due to increases in our salaries and wages and general and administrative expenses, both of which were attributable to an increase in our overall operations. These increases were offset to some extent by a decrease in our research and development expenses for the period.

 

9
 

 

Our general and administrative expenses consisted of rent, travel, advertising and promotion, office maintenance, communication expenses and courier and postage costs. Our general and administrative expenses increased by $19,638 during the three months ended February 29, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 largely as a result of increases in our overall operations as described above, and particularly, increases in our travel and advertising and promotion expenses. Our research and development costs decreased by $49,982 between the two periods primarily because of a decrease in our purchases of raw materials for conducting research on our products. In contrast, our salaries and wages increased by $65,448 because of an increase in both personnel and stock based compensation expense for the quarter, while our professional fees increased by $15,188 primarily due to in increase in our audit fees.

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss from operations of $530,663, compared to a net loss from operations of $464,547 during the three months ended February 28, 2011. We also incurred $336,198 in interest expense and $32,524 in loss on the disposal of equipment during our most recent fiscal quarter, whereas we only incurred $529,274 in interest expense during the same period in our prior fiscal year. The decrease in our interest expense corresponds directly to the sale of a $4,200,000 convertible debenture to one investor that we completed in March 2010 which was exchanged for a new secured convertible promissory note on October 27, 2011, and the sale of a $4,338,833 convertible note to the same investor that we completed in June 2011 that was modified on October 27, 2011. The terms of these securities are described more fully in Notes 4 and 6 of the notes to our interim consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this quarterly report.

 

For the Nine Months Ended February 29, 2012

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred $1,944,630 in total expenses, including $767,159 in research and development costs, $587,773 in salaries and wages, $176,716 in professional fees, $340,792 in general and administrative expenses, $41,252 in depreciation expenses and $30,938 in amortization expenses. During the same period in 2011, we incurred total expenses of $1,591,346, including $492,269 in research and development costs, $599,152 in salaries and wages, $244,022 in professional fees, $221,107 in general and administrative expenses and $25,027 in depreciation expenses. The increase in our total expenses between the two periods was primarily due to increases of $274,890 in our research and development costs and $119,685 in our general and administrative expenses, both of which were attributable to an increase in our overall operations as well as advances in our product development and clinical and manufacturing work. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $67,306 in our professional fees between the two periods which resulted from a decrease in our legal fees.

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss from operations of $1,944,630, compared to a net loss from operations of $1,591,346 during the nine months ended February 28, 2011. We also incurred $1,858,019 in interest expense, a $970,390 loss on the extinguishment of debt and a $66,232 loss on the disposal of equipment during our most recent fiscal quarter, whereas we only incurred $1,048,059 in interest expense, as offset by a $60,000 gain on the settlement of a payable, during the same period in our prior fiscal year. The increases in our interest expense and loss on the extinguishment of debt correspond directly to the sale of a $4,200,000 convertible debenture to one investor that we completed in March 2010, which was exchanged for a new secured convertible promissory note on October 27, 2011, and the sale of a $4,338,833 convertible note to the same investor that we completed in June 2011 that was modified on October 27, 2011. The terms of these securities and the loss on extinguishment of debt are described more fully in Notes 4 and 6 of the notes to our interim consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this quarterly report.

 

10
 

 

From April 25, 2006 (Date of Inception) to February 29, 2012

 

From our inception on April 25, 2006 to February 29, 2012, we incurred $6,099,949 in total expenses, including $1,947,493 in research and development costs, $2,044,558 in salaries and wages, $1,056,129 in professional fees, $913,877 in general and administrative expenses, $93,517 in depreciation expenses and $34,606 in amortization expenses. From our inception on April 25, 2006 to February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss from operations of $6,099,949, as well as $3,970,270 in interest expense, $970,390 in loss on the extinguishment of debt, $66,232 in loss on the disposal of equipment and $251,940 in financing charges, all of which were offset by a $60,000 gain on the settlement of a payable.

 

Net Loss

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss of $899,385, compared to a net loss of $993,821 during the three months ended February 28, 2011. Our net loss per share during these periods was $0.09 and $0.26, respectively.

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss of $4,839,271, compared to a net loss of $2,579,405 during the nine months ended February 28, 2011. Our net loss per share was $0.47 and $0.68 for these periods, respectively.

 

From our inception on April 25, 2006 to February 29, 2012, we incurred a net loss of $11,298,781.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of February 29, 2012 we had $609,556 in cash and cash equivalents, $1,642,392 in total assets, $4,124,459 in total liabilities and a working capital deficit of $3,303,143. As of February 29, 2012 we had an accumulated deficit of $13,902,901.

 

To date, we have experienced negative cash flows from operations and we have been dependent on sales of our equity securities and debt financing to meet our cash requirements. We expect this situation to continue for the foreseeable future, and we anticipate that we will experience negative cash flows during our fiscal year ended May 31, 2012. Accordingly, our ability to generate any revenues continues to be uncertain.

 

For the Three Months Ended February 29, 2012

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we spent $377,461 in cash on operating activities, compared to $394,819 in cash spending on operating activities during the three months ended February 28, 2011. The decrease in our cash spending on operating activities during our most recent fiscal quarter was primarily attributable to the decrease in our net loss as described above, as offset by a number of adjustments to reconcile our net loss to cash spending on operating activities, notably in the categories of the loss incurred on the disposal of equipment and interest and amortization expense.

 

We spent $45,884 in cash on investing activities during the three months ended February 29, 2012, compared to cash spending of $34,045 on investing activities during the same period in our prior fiscal year. The increase in our cash spending on investing activities during the recent period was mostly due to an increase in our purchases of equipment from $32,708 to $45,884.

 

11
 

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we received $150,711 in net cash from financing activities, including $91,969 in proceeds from the issuance of convertible debt. During the three months ended February 28, 2011, we received $719,001 in net cash from financing activities, substantially all of which was attributable to proceeds from previous issuance of convertible debt. Since our inception, we have received $3,741,969 in proceeds from debentures and $1,910,018 in from the issuance of our common stock.

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a comprehensive loss of $899,385.

 

For the Nine Months Ended February 29, 2012

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we spent $1,729,544 in cash on operating activities, compared to $1,063,557 in cash spending on operating activities during the nine months ended February 28, 2011. The increase in our cash spending on operating activities during the most recent period was primarily attributable to the increase in our net loss as described above and decreases in our GST/HST receivable and prepaid expenses, which were counterbalanced to some extent by an increase in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities as well as a number of adjustments to reconcile our net loss to cash spending on operating activities, significantly in the categories of the loss incurred on the extinguishment of debt and interest and amortization expense.

 

We spent $237,894 in cash on investing activities during the nine months ended February 29, 2012, compared to cash spending of $51,014 on investing activities during the same period in our prior fiscal year. The increase in our cash spending on investing activities during the recent period was mostly due to an increase in our purchases on equipment from $53,887 to $237,894.

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we received $1,091,803 in net cash from financing activities, including $1,091,969 in proceeds from the issuance of convertible debt. During the nine months ended February 28, 2011, we received $1,210,717 in cash from financing activities, substantially all of which was attributable to proceeds from previous issuances of convertible debt.

 

During the nine months ended February 29, 2012, we incurred a comprehensive loss of $4,854,091.

 

We estimate that our working capital requirements and projected operating expenses for the next 12 months will be approximately $1,970,000 as described in the “Plan of Operations” section, above. We do not currently have sufficient cash resources to meet our operating expenses for the next 12 months, so we plan to raise additional funds through the issuance of equity securities or through debt financing. There are no assurances that we will be able to obtain the funds required for our continued operation. If we are not able to obtain additional financing on a timely basis, we will not be able to meet our obligations as they become due and we will be forced to scale down or perhaps even cease our business. The issuance of additional equity securities by us could result in a significant dilution in the equity interests of our current stockholders, while obtaining commercial loans, assuming that such loans are available, would increase our liabilities and future cash commitments.

 

Going Concern

 

Our financial statements for the three and nine months ended February 29, 2012 have been prepared on a going concern basis and Note 1 to the financial statements identifies issues that raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

12
 

 

We do not anticipate generating positive internal operating cash flow until we are able to generate substantial revenues from the commercialization of our products, and there is no assurance that we will achieve profitable operations in the future. We have historically financed our operations primarily through cash flows generated from the sale of our equity securities and through cash infusions from officers and affiliates in exchange for debt and/or common stock. No officer or affiliate has made any commitment or is obligated to continue to provide cash through loans or purchases of equity.

 

We intend to meet the balance of our cash requirements for the next 12 months through a combination of debt financing and equity financing through private placements. Currently we are active in contacting broker/dealers in Canada and elsewhere regarding possible financing arrangements. However, we do not currently have any arrangements in place to complete any further private placement financings and there is no assurance that we will be successful in completing any such financings. If we are unsuccessful in raising sufficient funds through our capital raising efforts, we may review other financing options.

 

To date, we have not generated any revenues and have incurred significant operating losses from operations. Since we anticipate expanding our operational activities in the future, we may continue to experience net negative cash flows from operations and may be required to obtain additional financing to fund our operations through offerings of equity securities and bank borrowings to the extent necessary to provide working capital. Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate sufficient cash flow from stockholders or other outside sources to sustain operations and meet our obligations on a timely basis and ultimately to attain profitability.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of February 29, 2012, we had no 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 applicable.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation and under the supervision of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. The term “disclosure controls and procedures”, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

13
 

 

During the course of the preparation of our financial statements for the three and nine months ended February 29, 2012, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer identified a material weakness in our internal controls and disclosure controls and procedures. A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Based on the assessment of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of February 29, 2012, the following deficiencies were identified:

 

Our annual audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended May 31, 2010 and our interim unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three months ended August 31, 2010 required an audit adjustment to the accounting and disclosure of the compensation paid Dr. Salari, our officer and director, in fiscal 2010. The amount of compensation paid to Dr. Salari reported in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2010 was overstated due to our acquisition of Posh Cosmeceuticals Inc. effective December 2009, and an inadvertent error in the accrual of compensation to which Dr. Salari was entitled. Similarly, the amount of compensation paid to Dr. Salari reported in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended August 31, 2010 was overstated due to an inadvertent error in the accrual of compensation to which Dr. Salari was entitled. Our annual audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended May 31, 2010 and our interim unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three months ended August 31, 2010 were restated to reflect this adjustment.

 

In addition, based on the assessment of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of February 29, 2012 the following additional deficiencies were identified:

 

1. Lack of segregation of duties/management override – in common with businesses that have few employees, there exists a weakness as one person performs many different functions; and

 

2. Financial reporting deficiencies – certain accounting entries and related reporting of transactions were inadvertently not properly recorded in the past.

 

Management plans to remediate many of these deficiencies by engaging an accountant (other than our independent auditors) to prepare our financial statements on our behalf going forward. In addition, management plans to work with such accountant in evaluating or proceeding with any potential acquisitions. Also, management is currently considering additional remediation plans with respect to the above.

 

Accordingly, our management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of February 29, 2012 were not effective.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting during our most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
