Our corporate, development and manufacturing operations are located in our leased facility in Wilmington, Massachusetts.

2.

Interim Financial Statements and Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments), which we consider necessary, for a fair presentation of those financial statements. The results of operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2013 may not necessarily be indicative of results that may be expected for any succeeding quarter or for the entire fiscal year. The information contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements included in our annual report on Form 10-K as of and for the year ended March 31, 2013 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Significant accounting policies are described in Note B to the consolidated financial statements included in Item 8 of our annual report on Form 10-K as of March 31, 2013.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments, which are evaluated on an ongoing basis, and that affect the amounts reported in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the amounts of revenues and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from those estimates and judgments. In particular, significant estimates and judgments include those related to revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory reserves, useful lives and valuation of property and equipment.

3.

New Accounting Pronouncement

We have evaluated all issued but not effective accounting pronouncements and determined they are either immaterial or not relevant to us.

4.

Related Party Transactions

On January 16, 2013, Michael Adams, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, advanced the Company $60,000 for working capital purposes.  The advance was payable on demand and did not bear interest. As of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013 the outstanding balance was $60,000, respectively.

Equity-Based Compensation

Our 1996 Employee, Director and Consultants Stock Option Plan (the “1996 Plan”) was approved by the Board of Directors and Stockholders in March 1996. A total of 7,000,000 shares were reserved for issuance under the 1996 Plan. Under the terms of the 1996 Plan, the exercise price of Incentive Stock Options issued under the 1996 Plan must be equal to the fair market value of the common stock at the date of grant. In the event that Non Qualified Options are granted under the 1996 Plan, the exercise price may be less than the fair market value of the common stock at the time of the grant (but not less than par value). In October 2003, our shareholders approved the 2003 Stock Option Plan (the “2003 Plan”), which authorizes the issuance of 3,000,000 shares of common stock with terms similar to the 1996 Plan. In January 2006, we filed Form S-8 with the SEC registering an additional 489,920 total shares of common stock in the 1996 Plan and 2003 Plan. Total shares of common stock registered under the 1996 Plan and 2003 Plan (collectively, the “Plans”) are 10,489,920. Substantially all of the stock options granted pursuant to the 1996 Plan provide for the acceleration of vesting of the shares of Common Stock subject to such options in connection with certain changes in our control. A similar provision is not included in the 2003 Plan. Options granted expire ten years from the grant date.

Activity under the Plans for the three months ended June 30, 2013 is as follows:

Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per common share are based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period plus additional weighted-average common equivalent shares outstanding during the period. Common equivalent shares result from the assumed exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants, the proceeds of which are then assumed to have been used to repurchase outstanding common stock using the treasury stock method. In addition, the numerator is adjusted for any changes in income or loss that would result from the assumed conversion of potential shares. At June 30, 2013 and 2012, potentially dilutive shares of 2,088,798 and 2,349,417, respectively, were excluded from the diluted loss per share calculations because their effect would be antidilutive and the options exercise prices were greater than the average market price of the common shares. Shares deemed to be antidilutive include stock options and warrants issuable upon exercise.

9.

Stockholders’ Equity

Common Stock and Warrants

At June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, warrants to purchase 219,298 shares of common stock were outstanding at an exercise price of $0.874 per share, which are exercisable until March 31, 2015. We issued no warrants during the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

There were no shares of our common stock issued pursuant to the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESP Plan”) as of March 31, 2013 as all 500,000 shares authorized under the ESP Plan have been issued..

10.

Income Taxes

The provision for income taxes includes federal, state, local and foreign taxes. Income taxes are accounted for under the liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the year in which the temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. We evaluate the realizability of our deferred tax assets and establishes a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized. A valuation allowance has been recorded to offset all deferred tax assets due to uncertainty of realizing the tax benefits of the underlying operating loss and tax credit carry forwards over their carry forward periods. We have no significant deferred tax liabilities as of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013.

We account for uncertain tax positions using a “more-likely-than-not” threshold for recognizing and resolving uncertain tax positions. The evaluation of uncertain tax positions is based on factors including, but not limited to, changes in tax law, the measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in tax returns, the effective settlement of matters subject to audit, new audit activity and changes in facts or circumstances related to a tax position. We evaluate this tax position on a quarterly basis. We also accrue for potential interest and penalties, if applicable, related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. As of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, we had no material unrecognized tax benefits and no adjustments to liabilities or operations were required.

11.

Long-Term Financing Obligation

On December 22, 2011, we entered into an agreement with an independent third-party under which we sold and leased back our land and building generating gross proceeds of $2,000,000. Pursuant to a lease agreement, the initial minimum lease term is 15 years. At the end of the initial minimum lease term, we have the option to renew the lease for three periods of five years each. Under the terms of the lease, we were required to place $280,000 of the net proceeds in escrow as a prepayment of the calendar year 2012 lease payments. As of December 31, 2012, the balance of the prepaid lease payment was $0 and there is no further obligation to provide for prepaid lease payments. In addition, we provided, as collateral, a security interest in all furnishings, fixtures and equipment owned and used by us, having a net book value of approximately $82,000 as of June 30, 2013.  For accounting purposes, the provision of such collateral constitutes continuing involvement with the associated property. Due to this continuing involvement, this sale-leaseback transaction is accounted for under the financing method, rather than as a completed sale. Under the financing method, we include the sales proceeds received as a financing obligation. As of June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, the total financing obligation was $1,986,000, respectively, and accrued interest on financing obligation was $103,000 and $88,000, respectively. The building, building improvements and land remain on the consolidated balance sheet and the building and building improvements will continue to be depreciated over their remaining useful lives. Payments made under the lease are applied as payments of imputed interest and deemed principal on the underlying financing obligation.

12.

Contingencies

We are not a party to any legal proceedings, other than ordinary routine litigation incidental to its business, which we believe will not have a material affect on our financial position or results of operations.

13.

Concentrations of Credit Risk and Major Customers

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, three customers represented 72% of our total revenues. For the three months ended June 30, 2012, two customers represented 56% of our total revenues.

As of June 30, 2013, we had accounts receivable-trade, net, of $68,000, or 67%, due from two customers. As of March 31, 2013, we had accounts receivable-trade, net, of $95,000, or 65%, due from three customers.

As of June 30, 2013, we had $161,000 due from two customers related to receivables on royalties, license and annual usage fees. As of March 31, 2013, we had $208,000 due from four customer related to receivables on royalties, license and annual usage fees. These amounts are classified as accounts receivable-other in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

14.

Subsequent Events

We evaluated all events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date through the date when we issued these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. During this period, we did not have any material recognizable subsequent events.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains certain  statements that are “forward-looking” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the “Litigation Reform Act”). These forward looking statements and other information are based on our beliefs as well as assumptions made by us using information currently available.

The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “will,” “should” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described herein as anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended or using other similar expressions.

In accordance with the provisions of the Litigation Reform Act, we are making investors aware that such forward-looking statements, because they relate to future events, are by their very nature subject to many important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. For example, we may encounter competitive, technological, financial and business challenges making it more difficult than expected to continue to develop and market our products; the market may not accept our existing and future products; we may not be able to retain our customers; we may be unable to retain existing key management personnel; and there may be other material adverse changes in our operations or business. Certain important factors affecting the forward-looking statements made herein also include, but are not limited to (i) continued downward pricing pressures in our targeted markets, (ii) the continued acquisition of our customers by certain of our competitors, and (iii) continued periods of net losses, which could require us to find additional sources of financing to fund operations, implement our financial and business strategies, meet anticipated capital expenditures and fund research and development costs. In addition, assumptions relating to budgeting, marketing, product development and other management decisions are subjective in many respects and thus susceptible to interpretations and periodic revisions based on actual experience and business developments, the impact of which may cause us to alter our marketing, capital expenditure or other budgets, which may in turn affect our financial position and results of operations. For all of these reasons, the reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained herein, which speak only as of the date hereof. We assume no responsibility to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise except as required by law. For further information, you are encouraged to review our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 and the risk factors discussed therein under Part I. Item 1A.

Overview

We develop advanced polymer materials which provide critical characteristics in the design and development of medical devices. Our biomaterials are used in devices that are designed for treating a broad range of anatomical sites and disease states. Our business model leverages our proprietary materials science technology and manufacturing expertise in order to expand our product sales and royalty and license fee income.

Our leading edge technology, notably products such as ChronoFlex®, HydroMed, and HydroThane, has been developed to overcome a wide range of design and functional challenges, from the need for dimensional stability, ease of manufacturability and demanding physical properties to overcoming environmental stress cracking and providing heightened lubricity for ease of insertion. Our polymer product lines are compliant with measures applying to the processing of certain animal waste to protect against transmissible spongiform encephalopathies as set forth in European Council Decision 1999/534/EC. Our new product extensions allow us to customize our proprietary polymers for specific customer applications in a wide range of device categories.

Technology and Intellectual Property

Our unique materials science strengths are embodied in our family of proprietary polymers. We manufacture and sell our custom polymers under the trade names ChronoFilm, ChronoFlex, ChronoThane, ChronoPrene, ChronoSil, HydroThane, and PolyBlend. The ChronoFlex family of polymers has the potential to be marketed beyond our existing customer base. Our goal is to fulfill the market’s need for advanced materials science capabilities, thereby enabling customers to improve devices that utilize polymers. Our chemists continue to develop the ChronoFlex family of medical-grade polymers. Conventional polymers are susceptible to degradation resulting in catastrophic failure of long-term implantable devices such as pacemaker leads. ChronoFlex and ChronoThane polymers are designed to overcome such degradation and reduce the incidents of infections associated with invasive devices.

Key characteristics of our polymers are i) optional use as lubricious coatings for smooth insertion of a device into the body, ii) antimicrobial properties that are part of the polymer itself, and iii) mechanical properties, such as hardness and elasticity sufficient to meet engineering requirements. We believe our technology has wide application in increasing biocompatibility, drug delivery, infection control and expanding the utility of complex devices in the hospital and clinical environment.

We manufacture and sell our proprietary HydroThane polymers to medical device manufacturers that are evaluating HydroThane for use in their products. HydroThane is a thermoplastic, water-absorbing, polyurethane elastomer possessing properties which we believe make it well suited for the complex requirements of a variety of catheters. In addition to its physical properties, we believe HydroThane exhibits an inherent degree of bacterial resistance, clot resistance and biocompatibility. When hydrated, HydroThane has elastic properties similar to living tissue.

We also manufacture specialty hydrophilic polyurethanes that are primarily sold to customers as part of exclusive arrangements. Specifically, one customer is supplied tailored, patented hydrophilic polyurethanes in exchange for a multi-year, royalty-bearing exclusive supply contract which generates royalty income for the Company.

ChronoFilm is a registered trademark of PolyMedica.  ChronoFlex is our registered trademark. ChronoThane, ChronoPrene, ChronoSil, HydroThane, and PolyBlend are our tradenames.  CardioPass is our trademark.

We own or license four patents relating to our vascular graft manufacturing and polymer technology and products. While we believe our patents secure our exclusivity with respect to certain of our technologies, there can be no assurance that any patents issued would not afford us adequate protection against competitors which sell similar inventions or devices, nor can there be any assurance that our patents will not be infringed upon or designed around by others. However, we intend to vigorously enforce all patents issued to us.

In October 2009, we filed for a U.S. patent on ChronoSil, our silicone-urethane copolymer product, and methods for making ChronoSil.  ChronoSil can have many physical properties which are usually associated with polyurethanes, but also the feel and characteristics of silicones.

In August 2010, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued us a U.S. patent on our proprietary antimicrobial formulation for ChronoFlex. Current technology in the marketplace uses antibiotic drugs. The antimicrobial component of our polymers has been designed to be non-leaching as a result of the polymerization process.

In addition, PolyMedica has granted us an exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license for the use of one polyurethane patent and related technology in the field consisting of the development, manufacture and sale of implantable medical devices and biodurable polymer material to third parties for the use in medical applications (the “Implantable Device and Materials Field”). PolyMedica also owns, jointly with Thermedics, Inc., an unrelated company that manufactures medical grade polyurethane, the ChronoFlex polyurethane patents relating to the ChronoFlex technology. PolyMedica has granted us a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free sublicense of these patents for use in the Implantable Devices and Materials Field.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our critical accounting policies are summarized in Note B to our consolidated financial statements included in Item 8 of our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013. However, certain of our accounting policies require the application of significant judgment by our management, and such judgments are reflected in the amounts reported in our financial statements. In applying these policies, our management uses its judgment to determine the appropriate assumptions to be used in the determination of estimates. Those estimates are based on our historical experience, terms of existing contracts, our observance of market trends, information provided by our strategic partners and information available from other outside sources, as appropriate. Actual results may differ significantly from the estimates contained in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. There have been no changes to our critical accounting policies during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 vs. June 30, 2012

Revenues

Total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $492,000 as compared with $465,000 for the prior year period, an increase of $27,000, or 5.8%.

Product sales of our biomaterials for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $264,000 as compared with $343,000 for the prior year period, a decrease of $79,000, or 23.0%. Although we continue to benefit from opportunities from existing and new customers, the decrease is due in part to the decision by a significant customer to place a large order requiring product delivery, subject to their acceptance of the product, during the second and third quarters of fiscal 2014.

License, royalty and development fees for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $228,000 as compared with $122,000 for the prior year period, an increase of $106,000 or 86.9%. We have agreements to license our proprietary biomaterial technology to medical device manufacturers and develop biomaterials for incorporation into medical devices under development by our customers. Royalties are earned when these manufacturers sell medical devices which use our biomaterials.

The increase in license, royalty and development fees is primarily due to the recognition of revenue related to a long-term license and consulting agreement (the “Agreements”) with a major international developer and manufacturer of medical devices, which was entered into in June 2011. During the three months ended June 30, 2013, we achieved an additional milestone and recognized $120,000 of revenue in connection with the Agreements. Since inception of the Agreements, we have recognized revenue of $600,000, in the aggregate, through June 30, 2013.

Gross Profit

Gross profit on total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $297,000, or 60.3% of total revenues, compared with $284,000, or 61.1% of total revenues, for the prior year period. Although gross profit dollars and gross profit as a percentage of total revenues is relatively flat, as discussed in more detail below, the decrease in product sales volume resulted in a decrease in gross profit, which was offset by the gross profit benefit from increased fees from license and royalty fees.

Gross profit on product sales for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $69,000, or 26.1% of product sales, compared with $162,000, or 47.2% of product sales, for the prior year period. The decrease in gross profit dollars and gross profit as a percentage of product sales is primarily due to the reduced absorption of fixed overhead costs due to lower product sales. We believe our efforts to improve manufacturing overhead costs and processes have stabilized, and anticipated growth in product sales from a significant customer, as previously discussed, should benefit future gross profit on product sales.

Research, Development and Regulatory Expenses

Research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $95,000 as compared with $131,000 for the prior year period, a decrease of $36,000 or 27.5%. Our research and development efforts are focused on developing new applications for our biomaterials. Research and development expenditures consist primarily of the salaries of full time employees and related expenses, and are expensed as incurred. The decrease in research and development expenses is primarily a result of the elimination of non-essential departmental resources. Management believes its current research and development resources meet the needs of our customers and internal development needs.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $372,000 as compared with $462,000 for the prior year period, a decrease of $90,000, or 19.5%. The decrease is primarily due to reductions in legal, accounting and regulatory fees, and insurance costs.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $86,000 as compared to $84,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $2,000 or 2.4%. Interest expense is composed primarily of interest accrued in connection with the financing obligation.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2013, we had cash of $75,000. This represents a decrease of $28,000 when compared to a balance of $103,000 as of March 31, 2013.

During the three months ended June 30, 2013, we had net cash outflows of $33,000 from operating activities as compared with net cash outflows of $172,000 for the prior year period. Our uses of cash for operating activities have primarily consisted of salaries and wages for our employees, facility and facility-related costs, material and overhead costs used in production, laboratory supplies and materials, and professional fees. The sources of our cash flow from operating activities have consisted primarily of payments received from customers on the sale of polymer products and fees earned on license, royalty and development agreements. Net cash flows used in operating activities decreased by approximately $139,000, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to (i) increased royalty and licensing fees and timely collection of receivables; and ii) extended payment terms with certain vendors. These cash inflows were offset by our net loss for the period.

With respect to cash flows from financing activities, during the three months ended June 30, 2013, we had net cash inflows of $15,000 from accrued interest on financing obligations as compared to net cash inflows of $12,000 for the prior year period from.

There were no options or warrants exercised during the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The ability to attract additional capital investments in the future will depend on many factors, including the availability of credit, rate of revenue growth, the expansion of selling and marketing and research and development activities, and the timing of new product introductions and enhancements to existing products. We believe that as of June 30, 2013 our cash position and cash flows from our fiscal 2014 operations will be sufficient to fund our working capital and research and development activities for at least the next twelve months.

Any potential future sale of equity or debt securities may result in dilution to our stockholders, and we cannot be certain that additional public or private financing will be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, or at all. If we are required to raise additional financing, but are unable to obtain such financing, we may be required to delay, reduce the scope of, or eliminate one or more aspects of our operations or business development activities.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of June 30, 2013, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future material effect on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Item 3.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Not required pursuant to Item 305(e) of Regulation S-K.

Item 4.

Controls and Procedures

The certificates of the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer attached as Exhibits 31.1 and 31.2 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, in paragraph 4 of such certifications, information concerning the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, and internal control over financial reporting. Such certifications should be read in conjunction with the information contained in this Item 4 for a more complete understanding of the matters covered by such certifications.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2013. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-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 the 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 SEC’s rules and forms. 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 chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions to be made regarding required disclosure. It should be noted that any system of controls and procedures, however well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the system are met and that management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2013, the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There were no changes to the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2013 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
