Overview and History

We were incorporated in the State of Colorado on August 31, 2006 under the name “Mountain West Business Solutions, Inc.”  During our fiscal year ended July 31, 2009 our business was to provide management consulting with regard to accounting, computer and general business issues for small and home-office based companies.  Effective October 15, 2009, we executed an agreement to acquire Sunshine Biopharma, Inc., a Colorado corporation (“SBI”), in exchange for the issuance of 21,962,000 shares of our Common Stock and 850,000 shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, each convertible into twenty (20) shares of our Common Stock (the “Agreement”).  As a result of this transaction our officers and directors resigned their positions with us and were replaced by our current management.  See “MANAGEMENT.”  The effectiveness of the Agreement was conditional upon various conditions being satisfied, including the filing of our Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended July 31, 2009 and SBI changing its name to Sunshine Etopo, Inc.  These conditions were satisfied and Sunshine Etopo (formerly SBI) is now a wholly owned subsidiary of our Company.  Also as a result of this transaction we have changed our name to “Sunshine Biopharma, Inc.”

In January 2010, our Board of Directors adopted a resolution changing our fiscal year from July 31 to December 31, effective December 31, 2009.  Article VIII, Section 2 of our Bylaws provides the authority for our Board of Directors to establish our fiscal year on a date in their sole discretion.  Our Board undertook this resolution in order to have the fiscal year coincide with the fiscal year end for our wholly owned operating subsidiary company.

On April 19, 2010, the holders of a majority of our voting securities executed their written consent to amend our Articles of Incorporation to increase our authorized capital stock from 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, and 1,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, to 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock having a par value of $0.001 per share and 5,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, consisting of 4,150,000 shares of Preferred Stock, $0.10 par value, and 850,000 shares of Series “A” Preferred Stock, $0.10 par value per share.

On December 21, 2011, Advanomics Corporation, a privately held Canadian company (“Advanomics”) and our licensor, exercised its right to convert the 850,000 shares of Series “A” Preferred Stock it held in our Company into 17,000,000 shares of Common Stock.

As of July 1, 2012, we moved from 2015 Peel Street, 5th Floor, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3A 1T8 to our current principal place of business located at 469 Jean-Talon West, 3rd Floor, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3N 1R4.  Our phone number is (514) 764-9698 and our website address is www.sunshinebiopharma.com.

We have not been subject to any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceeding.

Results Of Operations

Comparison of Results of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 we did not generate any revenues.

General and administrative expenses during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 were $518,423, compared to general and administrative expense of $184,146 incurred during the nine month period ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $334,277.  The principal reason for this increase was $307,375 in financial consulting fees that were incurred during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 which were not incurred during the similar period in 2011. During the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 we also incurred approximately $65,143 in additional legal fees over the 2011 figure primarily relating to the private offerings of our securities undertaken in 2012.  Our research and development costs were reduced by $15,821 during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, as explained below.

As a result, we incurred a net loss of ($518,423) (approximately $0.01 per share) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to a net loss of ($184,146) (less than $0.01 per share) during the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.

Comparison of Results of Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011

General and administrative expenses during the three month period ended September 30, 2012 were $376,406, compared to general and administrative expense of $116,441 incurred during the three month period ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $259,965.  The principal reason for this increase was $209,375 in financial consulting fees that were incurred during the three month period ended September 30, 2012 which were not incurred during the similar period in 2011. During the three month period ended September 30, 2012 we also incurred approximately $51,114 in additional legal fees over the 2011 figure. Office costs also increased by $3,939 during the three month period ended September 30, 2012.  The remaining expenses remained relatively consistent from the 2011 period.

As a result, we incurred a net loss of ($376,781) (approximately $0.01 per share) for the three month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to a net loss of ($116,441) (less than $0.01 per share) during the three month period ended September 30, 2011.

Because we did not generate any revenues since our inception, following is our plan of operation.

Plan of Operation

We are currently a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer.  The preclinical studies for our lead compound, Adva-27a, a multi-purpose antitumor compound, were successfully completed in late 2011.  We are now continuing our clinical development of Adva-27a by conducting the next sequence of steps comprised of GMP manufacturing, IND-enabling studies, regulatory filing and Phase I clinical trials.  We plan to conduct our Phase I clinical trials for Adva-27a at the Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, Canada, one of McGill University’s Hospital Centers.  The planned indication will be multidrug resistant breast cancer as Adva-27a has shown a positive effect on this type of cancer for which there is currently little or no treatment options available. See “Clinical Trials” below.

We have licensed our technology on an exclusive basis from Advanomics, and we are planning to initiate our own research and development program as soon as practicable once financing is in place.  There are no assurances that we will obtain the financing necessary to allow us to implement this aspect of our business plan, or to enter clinical trials.

Carbon-Difluoride Platform Technology

Many therapeutically important compounds contain diester bonds that link different parts of the molecule together.  Diester bonds are naturally unstable often leading to suboptimal performance when the molecule is administered to patients.  Diester bonds have specific three-dimensional, as well as electrostatic properties that cannot be easily mimicked by other bonds.  Bonds that do not mimic the diester bond correctly invariably render the compound inactive.  In collaboration with Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Rouen in France (“INSA”), Advanomics has developed a way to replace the diester bond with a Carbon-Difluoride bond which acts as a diester isostere.  An isostere is a different chemical structure that mimics the properties of the original.  In the body, Carbon-Difluoride compounds are resistant to metabolic degradation but recognized similarly to the diester compounds (see Figure 1).

Figure 1

While no assurances can be provided, we are planning to expand our product line through acquisitions and/or in-licensing as well as in-house research and development.

Our Lead Compound (Adva-27a)

Our initial drug candidate is Adva-27a, a GEM-difluorinated C-glycoside derivative of Podophyllotoxin, targeted for various forms of cancer.  If we are successful in our current financing efforts, Adva-27a is expected to enter Phase I clinical trials for multidrug resistant breast cancer in late 2013 or early 2014 (see “Clinical Development Path” and “Clinical Trials” below).  Etoposide, which is also a derivative of Podophyllotoxin, is currently on the market and is used to treat various types of cancer including leukemia, lymphoma, testicular cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, liver cancer and several other forms of cancer.  Adva-27a is a new chemical entity and has been shown to have distinct and more desirable biological properties compared to Etoposide.  Most notably, Adva-27a appears to be effective against multidrug resistant breast cancer cells while Etoposide has no activity against this aggressive type of cancer (see Figure 2).  In other side-by-side studies against Etoposide as a reference, Adva-27a showed markedly improved cell killing activity in various other cancer types, particularly prostate, colon and lung cancer (see Table 1).  Our preclinical studies to date have shown that:

Adva-27a is 16-times more effective at killing multidrug resistant breast cancer cells (MCF-7/MDR) than Etoposide.
Adva-27a is also more effective at killing small-cell lung cancer cells (H69AR) than Etoposide.
Adva-27a is unaffected by P-Glycoprotein, the enzyme responsible for making cancer cells resistant to anti-tumor drugs.
Adva-27a has excellent clearance time (half-life = 54 minutes) as indicated by human microsomes stability studies and pharmacokinetics data in rats.
Adva-27a clearance is independent of Cytochrome P450, a mechanism that is less likely to produce toxic intermediates.
Adva-27a is an excellent inhibitor of Topoisomerase II with an IC50 of only 13.7 micromolar.
Adva-27a has shown excellent pharmacokinetics profile as indicated by studies done in rats.
Adva-27a does not inhibit tubulin assembly.

These and other preclinical data have recently been published in ANTICANCER RESEARCH, a peer-reviewed International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment.  The manuscript entitled “Adva-27a, a Novel Podophyllotoxin Derivative Found to Be Effective Against Multidrug Resistant Human Cancer Cells” appeared in print in the current, October 2012 issue of the journal.  A copy of the full manuscript as it appeared in the journal is available on our website at www.sunshinebiopharma.com.

Clinical Development Path

The early stage preclinical studies for our lead compound, Adva-27a, were successfully completed in late 2011 and the results have recently been published [ANTICANCER RESEARCH 32: 4423-4432 (2012)].  We are now continuing our clinical development program of Adva-27a by conducting the next sequence of steps comprised of the following:

GMP Manufacturing (for use in IND-Enabling Studies and Phase I Clinical Trials)
IND-Enabling Studies
Regulatory Filing (Fast-Track Status Anticipated)
Phase I Clinical Trials (Multidrug Resistant Breast Cancer Indication)
 
 
13

 

Clinical Trials

Adva-27a’s initial indication will be multidrug resistant breast cancer for which there are little or no treatment options.  In June 2011 we concluded an agreement with McGill University’s Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Canada to conduct Phase I clinical trials for this indication.  All aspects of the planned clinical trials in Canada will employ FDA standards at all levels.  We anticipate that the clinical trials will be completed by late 2014, at which time we, together with our licensor, expect to file for limited marketing approval with the regulatory authorities in Canada and the FDA in the U.S.  See “Marketing,” below.

Marketing

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 1.5 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.  Given the terminal and limited treatment options available for the multidrug resistant breast cancer indication we are planning to study, we anticipate being granted limited marketing approval (“compassionate-use”) for our Adva-27a following receipt of funding and a successful Phase I clinical trial.  There are no assurances that either will occur.  Such limited approval will allow us to make the drug available to various hospitals and health care centers for experimental therapy and/or “compassionate-use”, thereby generating some revenues in the near-term.

We believe that upon successful completion of Phase I Clinical Trials we may receive one or more offers from large pharmaceutical companies to buyout or license our drug.  However, there are no assurances that our Phase I Trials will be successful, or if successful, that any pharmaceutical companies will make an acceptable offer to us.  In the event we do not consummate such a transaction, we will require significant capital in order to manufacture and market our new drug.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2012, we had cash or cash equivalents of $255,415.

Net cash used in operating activities was $220,277 during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to $179,318 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. We anticipate that overhead costs in current operations will increase in the future once our research and development activities discussed above increase.

Cash flows provided or used in investing activities were $0 for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.  Cash flows provided or used by financing activities were $415,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 and $195,600 for the similar period in 2011.

We are not generating revenue from our operations, and our ability to implement our business plan for the future will depend on the future availability of financing. Such financing will be required to enable us to further develop our testing, research and development capabilities and continue operations. We intend to raise funds through private placements of our common stock, through short-term borrowing and by application for grants in conjunction with the Research Foundation of the State University of New York with whom we have contracted to perform testing of our Adva-27a drug. We estimate that we will require approximately $5 million in debt and/or equity capital to fully implement our business plan in the future and there are no assurances that we will be able to raise this capital.  While we have engaged in discussions with various investment banking firms to provide us these funds, as of the date of this report we have not reached any agreement with any party that has agreed to provide us with the capital necessary to effectuate our business plan or otherwise enter into a strategic alliance to provide such funding.  Our inability to obtain sufficient funds from external sources when needed will have a material adverse effect on our plan of operation, results of operations and financial condition.

Our cost to continue operations as they are now conducted is nominal, but these are expected to increase once we commence Phase I clinical trials.  We do not have sufficient funds to cover the anticipated increase in these expenses. We need to raise additional funds in order to continue our existing operations, to initiate research and development activities, and to finance our plans to expand our operations for the next year.  If we are successful in raising additional funds, our research and development efforts will continue and expand. 

Inflation

Although our operations are influenced by general economic conditions, we do not believe that inflation had a material effect on our results of operations during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.

Critical Accounting Estimates

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The following represents a summary of our critical accounting policies, defined as those policies that we believe are the most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and that require management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

We are a smaller reporting company and are not required to provide the information under this item pursuant to Regulation S-K.

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures - Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report.

These controls are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Based on this evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2012, at the reasonable assurance level.  We believe that our consolidated financial statements presented in this Form 10-Q fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for all periods presented herein.

Inherent Limitations - Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdown can occur because of simple error or mistake. In particular, many of our current processes rely upon manual reviews and processes to ensure that neither human error nor system weakness has resulted in erroneous reporting of financial data.

Management Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting - Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act. Those rules define internal control over financial reporting as a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 
Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;
 
Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and the receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and
 
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisitions, use or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal controls over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting - Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2012. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.  There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the period ended September 30, 2012 which were identified in conjunction with management’s evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
