Cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and exhibits thereto, contains estimates, predictions, opinions, projections and other statements that may be interpreted as “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. The forward-looking statements are contained principally in Part I, Item 2: “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Final Condition and Results of Operations” and are also contained elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “strategy,” “objective,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “potential,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “continue,” “contemplate,” “might,” “design” and other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Although we believe that we have a reasonable basis for each forward-looking statement contained in this Quarterly Report, we caution you that these statements are based on a combination of facts and factors currently known by us and our expectations of the future, about which we cannot be certain, and are subject to numerous known and unknown risks and uncertainties.

Forward-looking statements include statements about:

 

the development, regulatory approval and commercialization of MosaiQTM;

 

the design of blood grouping and disease screening capabilities of MosaiQTM and the benefits of MosaiQTM for both customers and patients;

 

future demand for and customer adoption of MosaiQTM, the factors that we believe will drive such demand and our ability to address such demand;

 

our expected profit margins for MosaiQTM;

 

the size of the market for MosaiQTM ;

 

the regulation of MosaiQTM by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or the FDA, or other regulatory bodies, or any unanticipated regulatory changes or scrutiny by such regulators;

 

future plans for our conventional reagent products;

 

the status of our future relationships with customers, suppliers, and regulators relating to our conventional reagent products;

 

future demand for our conventional reagent products and our ability to meet such demand;

 

our ability to manage the risks associated with international operations;

 

anticipated changes, trends and challenges in our business and the transfusion diagnostics market;

 

the effects of competition;

 

the expected outcome or impact of litigation;

 

our ability to protect our intellectual property and operate our business without infringing upon the intellectual property rights of others;

 

our anticipated cash needs and our expected sources of funding, including the achievement of product development milestones, and our estimates regarding our capital requirements and capital expenditures; and

 

our plans for executive and director compensation for the future.

You should also refer to the various factors identified in this and other reports filed by us with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited to those discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2015, for a discussion of other important factors that may cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements. As a result of these factors, we cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report will prove to be accurate. Further, if our forward-looking statements prove to be inaccurate, the inaccuracy may be material. In light of the significant uncertainties in these forward-looking statements, you should not regard these statements as a representation or warranty by us that we will achieve our objectives and plans in any specified time frame, or at all. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report represent our views only as of the date of this Quarterly Report. Subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. While we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Quarterly Report.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars — except for share data and per share data, unless otherwise stated)

 

Note 1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Description of Business

The principal activity of Quotient Limited (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries (the “Group”) is the development, manufacture and sale of products for the global transfusion diagnostics market. Products manufactured by the Group are sold to hospitals, blood banking operations and other diagnostics companies worldwide.

Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and are unaudited. In accordance with those rules and regulations, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The March 31, 2015 balance sheet was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. However, the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements at and for the year ended March 31, 2015 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year then ended. The results of operations for the six month period ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that may be expected for the year ending March 31, 2016 and any future period.

The Company has incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operations in each year since it commenced operations in 2007 and had an accumulated deficit of $88.9 million as of September 30, 2015. At September 30, 2015 the Company had cash holdings of $25.7 million and had covenants in place with lenders to maintain cash holdings above $10 million. Since September 30, 2015, the Company has received proceeds of $21.2 million on the exercise of its IPO warrants (see note 6), which expired on October 26, 2015.  The Company has expenditure plans over the next fifteen months that exceed its current cash holdings, raising substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The Company expects to fund its operations from a combination of funding sources, including through the use of existing cash balances, product sales, asset sales, the achievement of product development milestones, the extension or expansion of its credit facilities and the issuance of new equity. The Company’s Directors are confident in the availability of these funding sources and accordingly have prepared the financial statements on the going concern basis. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain adequate financing when necessary and the terms of any financings may not be advantageous to the Company and may result in dilution to its shareholders.  

 

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. As of September 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015, all cash and cash equivalents comprised readily accessible cash balances except for $314 at both September 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015 held in a restricted account as security for the property rental obligations of the Company’s Swiss subsidiary.

Trade Accounts Receivable

Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and are not interest bearing. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts to reserve for potentially uncollectible trade receivables. Additions to the allowance for doubtful accounts are recorded as General and administrative expenses. The Company reviews its trade receivables to identify specific customers with known disputes or collectability issues. In addition, the Company maintains an allowance for all other receivables not included in the

- 7 -


 

specific reserve by applying specific rates of projected uncollectible receivables to the various aging categories. In determining these percentages, the Company analyzes its historical collection experience, customer credit-worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment terms.

Concentration of Credit Risks and Other Uncertainties

The carrying amounts for financial instruments consisting of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short maturities. Derivative instruments, consisting entirely of foreign exchange contracts, are stated at their estimated fair values, based on quoted market prices for the same or similar instruments. The counterparties to the agreements relating to the Company’s derivative instruments consist of large financial institutions of high credit standing.

The Company’s main financial institutions for banking operations hold all of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2015 and at March 31, 2015. The Company’s accounts receivable are derived from net revenue to customers and distributors located in the United States and other countries. The Company performs credit evaluations of its customers’ financial condition. The Company provides reserves for potential credit losses but has not experienced significant losses to date. There was one customer whose accounts receivable balance represented 10% or more of total accounts receivable, net, as of September 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015. This customer represented 46% and 47% of the accounts receivable balances as of September 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015, respectively.

The Company currently sells products through its direct sales force and through third-party distributors. There was one direct customer that accounted for 10% or more of total product sales for the six month periods ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014. This customer represented 57% of total product sales for the the six month period ended September 30, 2015 and 54% for the six month period ended September 30, 2014.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The Company’s valuation techniques used to measure fair value maximized the use of observable inputs and minimized the use of unobservable inputs. The fair value hierarchy is based on the following three levels of inputs:

Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2—Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

See Note 6, “Commitment and Contingencies,” for information and related disclosures regarding the Company’s fair value measurements.

Inventory

Inventory is stated at the lower of standard cost (which approximates actual cost) or market, with cost determined on the first-in-first-out method. Accordingly, allocation of fixed production overheads to conversion costs is based on normal capacity of production. Abnormal amounts of idle facility expense, freight, handling costs and spoilage are expensed as incurred and not included in overhead. No stock-based compensation cost was included in inventory as of September 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015.

Property and Equipment

Property, equipment and leasehold improvements are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization are computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the related assets as follows:

Plant, machinery and equipment—4 to 25 years;

Leasehold improvements—the shorter of the lease term or the estimated useful life of the asset.

- 8 -


 

Repairs and maintenance expenditures, which are not considered improvements and do not extend the useful life of property and equipment, are expensed as incurred.

Intangible Assets and Goodwill

Intangible assets related to product licenses are recorded at cost, less accumulated amortization. Intangible assets related to technology and other intangible assets acquired in acquisitions are recorded at fair value at the date of acquisition, less accumulated amortization. Intangible assets are amortized over their estimated useful lives, on a straight-line basis as follows:

Customer relationships—5 years

Brands associated with acquired cell lines—40 years

Product licenses—10 years

Other intangibles assets—7 years

The Company reviews its intangible assets for impairment and conducts an impairment review when events or circumstances indicate the carrying value of a long-lived asset may be impaired by estimating the future undiscounted cash flows to be derived from an asset to assess whether or not a potential impairment exists. No impairment losses have been recorded in either of the six month periods ended September 30, 2015 or September 30, 2014.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue from product sales when there is persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Customers have no right of return except in the case of damaged goods. The Company has not experienced any significant returns of its products. Shipping and handling costs are expensed as incurred and included in cost of product sales. In those cases where the Company bills shipping and handling costs to customers, the amounts billed are classified as revenue.

The Company enters into revenue arrangements that may consist of multiple deliverables of its products and services. The terms of these arrangements may include non-refundable upfront payments, milestone payments, other contingent payments and royalties on any product sales derived on collaboration. Up-front fees received in connection with collaborative agreements are deferred upon receipts, are not considered a separate unit of accounting and are recognized as revenues over the relevant performance periods. Revenues related to research and development services included in a collaboration agreement are recognized as research and services are performed over the related performance periods for each contract. A payment that is contingent upon the achievement of a substantive milestone is recognized in its entirety in the period in which the milestone is achieved.

In June 2013, the Company entered into an agreement with Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics Inc. (“OCD”) to develop a range of rare antisera products. The Company had been working on this project for more than a year before the formal agreement was signed with OCD. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company is entitled to receive milestone payments of $1,400 upon the receipt of FDA approval of the rare antisera products and two further milestones of $500 each upon the updating of the CE-mark and FDA approvals to cover use of the products on OCD’s automation platform. The Company has concluded that as each of these milestones required significant levels of development work to be undertaken and there was no certainty at the start of the project that the development work would be successful, these milestones are substantive and will be accounted for under the milestone method of revenue recognition. The agreement also contains one further milestone of $650 payable upon fulfillment of $250 of cumulative orders of the rare antisera products covered by the agreement. This payment represents a royalty payment and was recognized in the quarter ended June 30, 2014 when the sales target was achieved.

Research and Development

Research and development expenses consist of costs incurred for company-sponsored and collaborative research and development activities. These costs include direct and research-related overhead expenses. The Company expenses research and development costs, including the expenses for research under collaborative agreements, as such costs are incurred. Where government grants are available for the sponsorship of such research, the grant receipt is included as a credit against the related expense.

Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period, which is generally the vesting period. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss. Compensation cost related to restricted stock units with a market condition is recognized regardless of whether the market condition is satisfied, provided that the requisite service has been provided. Stock-based compensation cost for restricted stock units granted to non-employees is measured when the awards vest and the expense is recognized during the period the related services are rendered.

In determining the fair value of the stock-based compensation payments in respect of share options, the Company uses the Black–Scholes model and a single option award approach, which requires the input of subjective assumptions. These assumptions include: the fair value of the underlying share, estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (expected term), the estimated volatility of the Company’s ordinary shares price over the expected term (expected volatility), risk-free interest rate (interest rate), expected dividends and the number of shares subject to options that will ultimately not complete their vesting requirements (forfeitures). The Company uses a barrier option pricing model to determine the grant date fair value of its multi-year performance related restricted stock unit awards. This requires the use of similar assumptions to the Black-Scholes model.

Debt Issuance Costs

On September 30, 2015, the Company elected to adopt early the requirements of Accounting Standards Update 2015-03, Interest — Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30) — Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the debt liability rather than as an asset.   In view of the refinancing of the Company’s secured credit facility on August 3, 2015 (see note 4), the Company believes that it is preferable to adopt this presentation in the year of refinancing in order to reflect more accurately the assets of the Company and the substance of the financing arrangements.  Comparative financial statements of prior years have been adjusted to apply the new presentation retrospectively.   This had the effect of reducing “Prepaid expenses and other current assets” and “Other non-current assets at March 31, 2015 by $549 and $366, respectively, with a consequential reduction in “Long term debt, less current portion” of $915.   There has been no impact on the comparative Statements of comprehensive loss, Statement of changes in shareholders’ deficit or Statements of cash flows.

On August 3, 2015, the Company drew down $30,000 under a new secured credit facility agreement with MidCap Financial Trust. The facility is repayable over a four year period with no repayments until March 1, 2017 when the first of 30 equal monthly repayments is due. If the Company achieves CE Mark approvals for the MosaiQTM instrument and blood grouping consumable, the facility is repayable over a four year period with no repayments until September 1, 2017 when the first of 24 equal monthly repayments is due. The facility bears interest at LIBOR plus 6.7%. The LIBOR rate applicable is the higher of the actual market rate from time to time or 2.0%. Other expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 included $0.6 million of previously deferred fees that were expensed as a result of the expansion of the credit facility.

Government Grant

In 2008, the Company was awarded research and development grant funding from Scottish Enterprise amounting to £1,791, for the development of MosaiQTM. The total grant claimed to September 30, 2015 is £1,790. Regular meetings are held to update Scottish Enterprise with the status of the project and while the terms of the grant award provide for full repayment of the grant in certain circumstances, the Company does not consider that any repayment is likely.

Hedging arrangements

The Company’s subsidiary in the United Kingdom (“UK”) has entered into three forward exchange contracts to sell $300 and purchase pounds sterling at £1:$1.50 in each calendar month through December 2015 as a hedge of its U.S. dollar denominated revenues.

Share warrants

As part of its initial public offering in April 2014 the Company issued 5 million warrants each to acquire 0.8 of an ordinary share for a price of $8.80 per whole share (“IPO warrants”). During the period from the initial public offering to September 30, 2015, 1,969,479 of these warrants were exercised resulting in 3,030,521 warrants remaining at September 30, 2015. The financial statements include a financial liability in respect of these warrants which is equal to the market price of the warrants at the end of each financial period.
