NOTE 1 – COMPANY BACKGROUND
The Company’s predecessor, Cardax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Holdings”), was incorporated in the State of Delaware on March 23, 2006.
Cardax, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTCQB:CDXI) is a development stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development of pharmaceuticals for chronic diseases driven by inflammation. The Company also has a commercial business unit that markets dietary supplements for inflammatory health. CDX-101, the Company’s astaxanthin pharmaceutical candidate, is being developed for cardiovascular inflammation and dyslipidemia, with a target initial indication of severe hypertriglyceridemia. CDX-301, the Company’s zeaxanthin pharmaceutical candidate, is being developed for macular degeneration, with a target initial indication of Stargardt disease. The Company’s pharmaceutical candidates are currently in pre-clinical development, including the planning of IND enabling studies. ZanthoSyn® is a physician recommended astaxanthin dietary supplement for inflammatory health. The Company sells ZanthoSyn® primarily through wholesale and e-commerce channels. The safety and efficacy of the Company’s products have not been directly evaluated in clinical trials or confirmed by the FDA.
Going concern matters
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As shown in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred net losses of $1,433,626 and $3,650,740 for the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2019, respectively, and incurred net losses of $928,888 and $3,076,873 for the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. The Company has incurred losses since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $65,594,058 as of September 30, 2019, and has had negative cash flows from operating activities since inception. The Company expects that its marketing program for ZanthoSyn® will continue to focus on outreach to physicians, healthcare professionals, retail personnel, and consumers, and anticipates further losses in the development of its consumer business. The Company also plans to advance the research and development of its pharmaceutical candidates and anticipates further losses in the development of its pharmaceutical business. As a result of these and other factors, management has determined there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
During the nine-months ended September 30, 2019, the Company raised additional capital to carry out its business plan. As part of the Company’s efforts, it raised an additional $245,000 in equity from existing stockholders and $2,625,000 in gross proceeds from debt, including $2,325,000 from related parties. On August 14, 2019, the Company filed a registration statement on Form S-1 for a proposed $15 million public offering of common stock and warrants. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the proposed public offering primarily to fund pharmaceutical development and its operations. The Company’s continued ability to raise additional capital through future equity and debt securities issuances is unknown. Obtaining additional financing, the successful development of the Company’s contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties.
