||Significant Accounting Policies|
||Basis of presentation|
These unaudited interim financial
statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US
GAAP). The Companys functional and reporting currency is the US dollar.
These unaudited interim financial
statements reflect all adjustments (all of which are normal and recurring in nature) that, in the opinion of management, are necessary
for fair presentation of the interim financial information. The results of operations for the interim period presented are not
necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any subsequent quarter or for the entire year ending March 31, 2013. Certain
information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have
been condensed or omitted. These unaudited interim financial statements and notes included herein have been prepared on a basis
consistent with and should be read in conjunction with the Companys audited financial statements and notes for the year
ended March 31, 2012, as filed in its Form 10-K.
The preparation of interim
financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the interim financial statements,
and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates,
including, but not limited to, those related to accounts payable and accrued liabilities, the fair value of warrants attached to
common shares issued and the recoverability of income tax assets. While management believes the estimates used are reasonable,
actual results could differ from those estimates and could impact future results of operations and cash flows.
||Basic and diluted loss per share|
Basic loss per share is computed
using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share assumes the exercise of common stock
equivalents, such as stock issuable pursuant to the exercise of stock options and warrants. However, the calculation of diluted
loss per share excludes the effects of various conversions and exercise of options and warrants that would be anti-dilutive.
||Foreign currency translation|
Transactions in currencies
other than the US dollar are translated into US dollars at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date for monetary assets
and liabilities, and at historical exchange rates for non-monetary assets and liabilities. Expenses are translated at the average
rates for the period, except amortization, which is translated on the same basis as the related assets. Resulting translation gains
or losses are reflected in net loss.
||Research and development|
Research and development expenditures
are charged to operations as incurred.
All financial instruments
are classified as one of the following: held-to-maturity, loans and receivables, held-for-trading, available-for-sale or other
financial liabilities. Financial assets and liabilities held-for-trading are measured at fair value with gains and losses recognized
in net income. Financial assets held-to-maturity, loans and receivables, and other financial liabilities are measured at amortized
cost using the effective interest method. Available-for-sale instruments are measured at fair value with unrealized gains and losses
recognized in other comprehensive income and reported in shareholders equity.
A financial instruments
categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
The Company prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:
||Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.|
||Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, or indirectly, such as quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions.|
||Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable market data.|
Transaction costs that are
directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial instruments that are classified as held-to-maturity, loans and receivables,
or other financial liabilities are included in the initial carrying value of such instruments and amortized using the effective
interest method. Transaction costs classified as held-for-trading are expensed when incurred, while those classified as available-for-sale
are included in the initial carrying value.
The Company uses the asset
and liability approach in its method of accounting for income taxes that requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and
assets for expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and
liabilities. The Company recognizes the effect of uncertain tax positions where it is more likely than not based on technical merits
that the position could be sustained where the tax benefit has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon settlement.
A valuation allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded if based upon available evidence, it is more likely than not that
some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
||Recent accounting guidance not yet adopted|
The Company has reviewed
recently issued accounting pronouncements and plans to adopt those that are applicable to it. The Company does not expect the
adoption of these pronouncements to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
