Capitalization And Management's Plans



The Company's financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) applicable to a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of October 31, 2014, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $75,607,031 and incurred a net loss for six months ended October 31, 2014 of $5,648,497.


Funding has been provided by management and investors to maintain and expand the Company and acquire Bio Blue Bird. New investors enabled the completion of the acquisition of Bio Blue Bird which provided the Company the ability to begin preparations toward clinical trials in patients with advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer. Additional funding enabled the Company to obtain the diabetes license and to advance the Company’s preclinical studies and preparations for clinical trials of its product candidates. The remaining challenges, beyond the regulatory and clinical aspects, include accessing further funding for the Company to cover its future cash flow needs. The Company continues to acquire additional funds through management's efforts. 


On October 28, 2014, the Company filed a Form S-3 Registration Statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. This Registration Statement registered $50 million of securities which may be issued by the Company from time to time in indeterminate amounts and times and at the discretion of the Company.


The Company requires substantial additional capital to finance its planned business operations and expects to incur operating losses in future periods due to the expenses related to the Company’s core businesses. The Company has not realized material revenue since it commenced doing business in the biotechnology sector, and it is not without doubt that it will be successful in generating revenues in the future in this sector. The Company believes that cash and cash equivalents as of October 31, 2014 are sufficient to fund its operations through the end of October 31, 2015.


The Company will continue to be dependent on outside capital to fund its research and operating expenditures for the foreseeable future. If the Company fails to generate positive cash flows or fails to obtain additional capital when required, the Company may need to modify, delay or abandon some or all of its business plans.


Management Strategy and Goals


The Company has worked closely with the senior executives of SG Austria and Austrianova Singapore in a number of critical areas. The senior executives of the Company, and SG Austria and Austrianova Singapore have succeeded in creating mechanisms and processes to advance the interests of their respective companies, regardless of the economic conditions and challenges. The strong collaboration between the two companies is expected to remain since the Company has a 14.5% ownership interest in SG Austria and Austrianova Singapore will be carrying out the manufacturing of encapsulated live cells for the Company in the areas of pancreatic cancer and diabetes. In addition, the senior executives of SG Austria and Austrianova Singapore will be working with the Company to develop new areas for the use of the live cell encapsulation technology, one example being the development of a “breakthrough” treatment for breast cancer.


The Company's first goal is to ensure that the success engendered in the previous Phase 1/2 pancreatic cancer clinical trials can be built upon and advanced. This occurred with the Company’s acquisition of Bio Blue Bird. This acquisition enabled the Company to advance itself as a biotechnology company. Due to the Company's extensive array of product candidates already in-house, the Company exists as a biotechnology company with a broad base - much like that of larger biotechnology or pharmaceutical companies after years of in-house advances, the purchasing of products from third parties and even the acquisition of entire companies. Thus, with an overall goal of long-term growth, management believes the Company is poised to be thrust into a very different position from that of one year ago, particularly as a result of the stabilization of its financial condition that has been occurring over the past year.


Management believes its objective is to have the Company become an industry-leading biotechnology company, with a multi-part, laser-focused strategy. Like those of larger pharmaceutical companies, this strategy is expected to strengthen the Company's position in both the short and long term. The Company will seek to raise capital to fund growth opportunities and provide for its working capital needs as the strategy of the Company is executed. The Company's efforts to achieve financial stability and to enable it to carry out the strategy of the Company include several primary components:


· The completion of the preparations for the Phase 2b clinical trial in advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer to be carried out in Australia;
· The conducting of preclinical studies and clinical trials that will examine the effectiveness of the Company’s pancreatic cancer treatment in ameliorating the pain and accumulation of malignant ascites fluid in the abdomen that are characteristic of pancreatic cancer. These studies and trials will be conducted by Translational Drug Development in the United States;
· The enhancement of the Company’s ability to expand into the biotechnology arena through further research and partnering;
· The acquisition of new contracts and revenue utilizing both in-house products and the newly acquired biotechnology licensing rights;
· The further development of uses of the Cell-in-a-Box® technology platform through contracts, licensing agreements and joint ventures with other companies; and
· The completion of testing, expansion and marketing of existing and newly derived product candidates.
