SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of MYOS RENS Technology Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Atlas Acquisition Corp. All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Reclassification of Prior Period Presentation

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period presentation. These reclassifications did not have a material impact on the reported results of operations.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, equity and the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate, could change in the near term due to one or more future non-conforming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from estimates. Significant items subject to such estimates include but are not limited to the valuation of stock-based awards, measurement of allowances for doubtful accounts and inventory reserves, the amount of deferred offering costs recognized, the selection of asset useful lives, fair value estimations used to test long-lived assets, including intangibles, impairments and provisions necessary for assets and liabilities. 

 

Management’s estimates, including evaluation of impairment of long-lived assets and inventory reserves are based in part on forecasted future results. A variety of factors could cause actual results to differ from forecasted results and these differences could have a significant effect on asset carrying amounts. Management believes that we have the ability to sell raw materials to a third party in the event the Company does not obtain the requisite amount of revenue.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with a maturity of three months or less and money market accounts to be cash equivalents. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 the Company had no cash equivalents. As part of our ongoing liquidity assessments, management evaluates our cash and cash equivalents. The Company maintains its bank accounts with high credit quality financial institutions and has never experienced any losses related to these bank accounts. The Company minimizes its credit risk associated with cash by periodically evaluating the credit quality of its financial institutions. The amount of funds held in these accounts can fluctuate due to the timing of receipts and payments in the ordinary course of business and due to other reasons, such as business-development activities so the Company may at times have exposure to cash in excess of FDIC insured limits.

  

Inventories, net

 

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost determined on a first in, first-out basis. Each quarter the Company evaluates the need for a change in the inventory reserve based on projected future sales and expiration dates of products. For the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2018 a $25 reserve was recorded for expiring product within cost of sales on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Deferred Offering Costs

 

The Company defers as other assets the direct incremental costs of raising capital until such time as the offering is completed. At the time of the completion of the offering, the costs are charged against the capital raised. Should the offering not be completed, deferred offering costs are charged to operations during the period in accordance with SEC guidance. Since the February 21, 2017 sales agreement expired by June 30, 2018 the remaining deferred offering costs of $96 on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets were recognized and recorded within the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations as general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

On July 24, 2018, the Company entered into a new sales agreement, incurring $108 of deferred offering costs as of September 30, 2018 which was recorded as a long term other asset on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. 

 

Fair Value of Long-Lived Assets

 

We test long-lived assets, including fixed assets and intangibles with finite lives, for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the net carrying amount is greater than its fair value. Assets are grouped and evaluated at the lowest level for their identifiable cash flows that are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets. We consider historical performance and future estimated results in our evaluation of potential impairment and then compare the carrying amount of the asset to the future estimated cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset exceeds estimated expected undiscounted future cash flows, we measure the amount of impairment by comparing the carrying amount of the asset to its fair value. The estimation of fair value is generally measured by discounting expected future cash flows at the rate we utilize to evaluate potential investments. We estimate fair value based on the information available in making the necessary estimates, judgments and projections.

 

Fixed Assets

 

Fixed assets are stated at cost and depreciated to their estimated residual value over their estimated useful lives of 3 to 7 years. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the asset’s useful life or the contractual remaining lease term including expected renewals. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the assets and related accumulated depreciation are reversed from the accounts and the resulting gains or losses are included in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method for all fixed assets. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.

  

Intangible Assets

 

The Company’s intangible assets consist primarily of intellectual property pertaining to Fortetropin®, including its formula, trademarks, trade secrets, patent application and domain names. Based on expansion into new markets and introduction of new formulas, management determined that the intellectual property had a finite useful life of ten (10) years and began amortizing the asset over its estimated useful life beginning April 2014.

 

In July 2014, the Company acquired the United States patent application for the manufacturing of Fortetropin® from Deutsches Institut fur Lebensmitteltechnik e.V. - the German Institute for Food Technologies (“DIL”). The cost of the patent application, which was capitalized as an intangible asset, was determined to be $101, based on the present value of the minimum guaranteed royalty payable to DIL using a discount rate of 10%. The intangible asset is being amortized over an estimated useful life of ten (10) years. The remaining contingent royalty payments will be recorded as the contingency is resolved and the royalty becomes payable under the arrangement. For additional information on the amended supply agreement with DIL refer to “NOTE 12 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES - Supply Agreement.”

 

Intangible assets also includes patent costs associated with applying for a patent and being issued a patent. Costs to defend a patent and costs to invalidate a competitor’s patent or patent application are expensed as incurred. Upon issuance of the patent, capitalized patent costs are reclassified from intangibles with indefinite lives to intangibles with finite lives and amortized on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the estimated economic life or the initial term of the patent, generally 20 years.

 

Our policy is to evaluate intangible assets subject to amortization for possible impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Impairment testing of intangible assets subject to amortization involves comparing the carrying amount of the asset to the forecasted undiscounted future cash flows. In the event the carrying value of the asset exceeds the undiscounted future cash flows, the carrying value is considered not recoverable and an impairment exists. An impairment loss is measured as the excess of the asset’s carrying value over its fair value, calculated using a discounted future cash flow method. The computed impairment loss is recognized in the period that the impairment occurs. Assets which are not impaired may require an adjustment to the remaining useful lives for which to amortize the asset.

 

There were no impairment charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017. Intangible assets at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 consisted of the following:

 

    September 30,     December 31,  
    2018     2017  
Intangibles with finite lives:            
Intellectual property   $ 2,101     $ 2,101  
Website - qurr.com     380       380  
Less: accumulated amortization – intellectual property     (942 )     (784 )
Less: accumulated amortization - website     (114 )     (57 )
Total intangible assets, net   $ 1,425     $ 1,640  

 

Assuming no additions, disposals or adjustments are made to the carrying values and/or useful lives of the intangible assets, amortization expense for intangible assets is estimated to be as follows:

 

Years Ended December 31,   Amount  
2018 (remaining three months)   $ 72  
2019     286  
2020     286  
2021     286  
2022     229  
2023     210  
2024     56  
Total   $ 1,425  

 

Revenue

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09 (“ASU 2014-09”), as amended, using the modified retrospective method. ASU 2014-09, which is codified in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification as Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, supersedes nearly all previous revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP and requires revenue to be recognized when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. Additionally, qualitative and quantitative disclosures are required about customer contracts, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract.

 

The adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not impact the Company’s timing or amounts of revenue recognition. As such, the Company recorded no transition adjustment as of January 1, 2018. However, the additional required qualitative and quantitative disclosures to Topic 606 are provided below.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Net revenues include products and shipping and handling charges, net of estimates for incentives and other sales allowances or discounts. Our product sales generally do not provide for rights of return. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring products. All revenue is recognized when we satisfy our performance obligations under the contract. We recognize revenue by transferring the promised products to the customer, with revenue recognized at the point in time the customer obtains control of the products. We consider charges associated with shipping and handling activities as costs to fulfill our performance obligations. Using probability assessments, we estimate sales incentives expected to be paid over the term of the contract. The majority of our contracts have a single performance obligation and are short term in nature. Sales taxes that are collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities are accounted for on a net basis and therefore are excluded from net sales.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Credit is extended based upon an evaluation of the customer’s financial condition. Accounts receivable are stated at their estimated net realizable value. Any allowance for doubtful accounts is based on an analysis of customer accounts and historical experience.

 

Contract Liabilities

 

Contract liabilities may include deferred revenue related to customer payments made in advance of the customer obtaining control of the product, as well as liabilities associated with sales incentives. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had no contract liability balances.

Advertising

 

The Company charges advertising expenses to selling, marketing and research as incurred. Advertising expenses were $15 and $83 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $269 and $395 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses consist primarily of operating expenses, the cost of manufacturing our product for clinical study, the cost of conducting clinical studies and the cost of conducting preclinical and research activities. 

 

Research and development expenses were $62 and $1 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $353 and $42 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

  

Shipping and Handling

 

The Company records expenses for shipping and handling of products to our customers as cost of sales. These expenses were $11 and $9 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $35 and $28 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

Stock-based payments are measured at their estimated fair value on the date of grant. Stock-based compensation expense recognized during a period is based on the estimated number of awards that are ultimately expected to vest. For stock options and restricted stock that do not vest immediately we recognize compensation cost on the unvested shares and options on a straight-line basis over the remaining vesting period. These expenses are included as personnel and benefits within the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Stock-based compensation expenses were $30 and $40 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $195 and $121 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the fair value of stock options and the market price of our common stock on the date of grant for the fair value of restricted stock issued. Our determination of the fair value of stock-based awards is affected by our stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of highly complex and subjective variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, our expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and certain other market variables such as the risk-free interest rate.

 

Segment Information

 

ASC 280, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information, establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments and requires selected information for those segments to be presented in the financial statements. It also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services and geographic areas. Operating segments are identified as components of an enterprise about which separate discrete financial information is available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker, or decision-making group, in making decisions how to allocate resources and assess performance. Management has determined that the Company operates in one segment.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants. The authoritative guidance on fair value measurements establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis whereby observable and unobservable inputs, used in valuation techniques, are assigned a hierarchical level.

 

The following are the hierarchy levels of inputs to measure fair value: 

 

  Level 1: Inputs that utilize quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  Level 2: Inputs that utilize observable quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets and observable quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets that are not very active.
  Level 3: Inputs that utilize unobservable inputs and include valuations of assets or liabilities for which there is little, if any, market activity.

 

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the above hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 the Company’s financial instruments consisted primarily of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses. Due to their short-term nature, the carrying amounts of the Company’s financial instruments approximated their fair values.

  

Basic and Diluted Loss Per Share

 

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period increased to include the number of additional shares of common stock that would have been outstanding if potential dilutive securities outstanding had been issued. The Company uses the “treasury stock” method to determine the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents such as options, warrants and restricted stock. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company incurred a net loss.

 

Accordingly, the potential dilutive securities were excluded from the calculation of diluted loss per share of common stock because their inclusion would have been antidilutive. As a result, diluted loss per common share is the same as basic loss per common share for all periods presented. The aggregate number of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding at September 30, 2018 excluded from the diluted net loss per share computation because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive were 1,429,942, which includes warrants to purchase an aggregate of 821,202 shares of common stock and options to purchase an aggregate of 608,740 shares of common stock. 

 

The aggregate number of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding at September 30, 2017 excluded from the diluted net loss per share computation because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive were 1,384,219, which includes outstanding and exercisable warrants to purchase an aggregate of 821,202 shares of common stock, and vested stock options to purchase an aggregate of 253,310 shares of common stock.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASC 740”). Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases as well as operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the periods in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent that the recoverability of the asset is unlikely to be recognized. The Company follows ASC 740 rules governing uncertain tax positions, which provides guidance for recognition and measurement. This prescribes a threshold condition that a tax position must meet for any of the benefits of the uncertain tax position to be recognized in the financial statements. It also provides accounting guidance on recognition, classification and disclosure of these uncertain tax positions. The Company has no significant uncertain income tax positions.

 

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act contains several key provisions including, among other things, reducing the U.S. federal corporate tax rate from thirty-five percent to twenty-one percent. Since the Company has a net deferred tax asset which has been fully reserved with a valuation allowance, the change in the enacted rate did not have an impact on the Company’s net deferred tax assets. Changes in tax law are accounted for in the period of enactment. In addition, Federal net operating losses (“NOL”) generated during future periods will be carried forward indefinitely, but will be subject to an eighty percent utilization against taxable income. The carryback provision has been revoked for NOL incurred after January 1, 2018. 

 

Interest costs and penalties related to income taxes are classified as interest expense and operating expenses, respectively, in the Company’s financial statements. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company did not recognize any interest or penalty expense related to income taxes. The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and states in which it does business.
