NOTE 1 ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

AIT Therapeutics, Inc. (“AITT” or the “Company”) was incorporated on April 24, 2015 as KokiCare, Inc. under the laws of the State of Delaware. On January 9, 2017, the name of the Company was changed to AIT Therapeutics, Inc.

 

Advanced Inhalation Therapies (AIT) Ltd. (“AIT”) was incorporated in Israel on May 1, 2011 and commenced its operations in May 2012. On August 29, 2014, AIT established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Advanced Inhalation Therapies (AIT) Inc. (“Inc.”), a Delaware corporation. In December 2016, through a merger transaction, AIT became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

The Company is an emerging medical device company that is developing a Nitric Oxide (“NO”) delivery system that generates NO from ambient air.

 

Prior to Consummation of the Merger

 

The Company received a $320,000 cash purchase price from AIT and used the cash to (i) pay off all the liabilities of the Company as of the closing of the merger, (ii) issue a cash dividend of $2.50 per share to its stockholders immediately prior to the closing of the merger, and (iii) acquire 90,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share from the company’s prior sole officer and director, for $25,000.

 

KokiCare Inc. adopted its amended and restated certificate of incorporation to (i) change its name from KokiCare Inc. to AIT Therapeutics Inc., (ii) increase its capitalization to provide for the issuance of up to 100,000,000 shares of its common stock and up to 10,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share; and (iii) effect a one-for-100 reverse stock split of the common stock. In connection with the closing of the merger, all outstanding ordinary shares, warrants and options of AIT were converted into the rights to receive equivalent shares of AITT’s common stock, options and warrants at a ratio of 1:1.

 

Reverse Merger

 

On December 29, 2016, KokiCare Inc. entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as subsequently amended, the “Merger Agreement”), together with Red Maple Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of KokiCare Inc., (“Merger Sub”), and AIT. The Merger Agreement provided for (i) the merger of Merger Sub with and into AIT pursuant to the laws of the State of Israel (the “Israeli Merger”), and (ii) the conversion of the ordinary shares and other outstanding securities of AIT into the right to receive shares and other applicable securities of AITT, with AIT surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of AITT (the “Merger”). The Israeli Merger became effective on December 29, 2016 and the Merger closed on January 13, 2017 (the “Closing”).

 

The Merger was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization which is outside the scope of Accounting Standards Codification “ASC” 805, “Business Combinations”. Under reverse capitalization accounting, AIT is considered the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes and acquired the assets and assumed the liabilities of the Company. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed are reported at their historical amounts. Consequently, the consolidated financial statements of the Company reflect the operations of the acquirer for accounting purposes together with a deemed issuance of shares, equivalent to the shares held by the former stockholders of the legal acquirer and a recapitalization of the equity of the accounting acquirer. These condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company since the effective date of the reverse capitalization and the accounts of AIT since inception.

 

Liquidity

 

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company incurred negative operating cash flows of $5,748,315 for the nine months ended December 31, 2018 and accumulated losses of $37,586,650 since inception through December 31, 2018. The Company has cash equivalent and marketable securities of $3,069,217 as of December 31, 2018. The Company estimates that it has enough cash to operate its business through March 31, 2020.

 

The Company will need to raise additional funds in order to continue our clinical trials. Insufficient funds may cause us to delay, reduce the scope of or eliminate one or more of our development programs. The Company’s future capital needs and the adequacy of its available funds will depend on many factors, including the cost of clinical studies and other actions needed to obtain regulatory approval of our medical devices in development. Management plans to raise additional funds through sale of equity or debt securities or through strategic collaboration and/or licensing agreements, to fund operations until the Company is able to generate enough revenues to cover operating costs. Financing may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all, and our failure to raise capital when needed could materially adversely impact our growth plans and our financial condition or results of operations. Additional equity financing, if available, may be dilutive to our shareholders. In addition, the Company may never be able to generate sufficient revenue if any from its potential medical devices. On August 10, 2018, the Company entered into a $20 million stock purchase agreement and a registration rights agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), providing for the issuance of up to $20 million of the Company’s common stock over 36 months at the Company’s discretion, see Note 5. On January 23, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement for the commercial rights to conditions treated with < 80 ppm of nitric oxide in the hospital setting with Circassia Pharmaceuticals plc in the United States and China, see Note 10.

 

In addition to the normal risks associated with a new business venture, there can be no assurance that the Company’s research and development will be successfully completed or that any product will be approved or commercially viable. The Company is subject to risks common to companies in the medical device industry including, but not limited to, dependence on collaborative arrangements, development by the Company or its competitors of new technological innovations, dependence on key personnel, protection of proprietary technology, and compliance with the FDA and other governmental regulations and approval requirements.
