NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The foregoing unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America for complete financial statements. These unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim financial statements furnished herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim period presented.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the financial statements are published, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumption are inherent in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements; accordingly, it is possible that the actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions that could have a material effect on the reported amounts of the Company’s financial position and results of operations.

 

Operating results for the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2014.

 

NOTE 2 – ORGANIZATION AND OPERATIONS

 

Manhattan Scientifics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (formerly Grand Enterprises, Inc.) (the “Company”) was established on July 31, 1992 and has two operating wholly-owned subsidiaries: Metallicum, Inc., (“Metallicum”) and Senior Scientific, LLC ( “Senior Scientific”). On June 12, 2008, the Company acquired Metallicum, Inc., for 15,000,000 shares of Company’s common stock. The Company operates as a technology incubator that seeks to acquire, develop and commercialize life-enhancing technologies in various fields, with emphasis in the areas of nanotechnologies and nanomedicine. In this capacity, the Company continues to identify emerging technologies through strategic alliances with scientific laboratories, educational institutions, and scientists and leaders in industry and government. The Company has a long standing relationship with Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico. During 2008, the Company refocused its efforts from the development of its fuel cell technologies to its current focus on the development of nanomaterials through the acquisition of Metallicum and early cancer detection through the acquisition of Senior Scientific.

 

Metallicum is a nanotechnology start-up company located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Metallicum has focused on the development and manufacturing of nanostructured metals for medical implants and other applications. Metallicum has established, and intends to establish, additional manufacturing partner relationships with major Fortune 500 metals companies and strategic partnering with significant customers in the medical device & prosthetics industries as well as in auto, truck, and aircraft manufacturing industries. The Company conducts its operations primarily in the United States.

 

Manhattan Scientifics purchased Metallicum to acquire its licensed rights to patented technology. The technology is comprised of three US Patents (US Patent numbers 7152448, 6197129 and 6399215) for which Metallicum (subsequently, Manhattan) had been assigned exclusive license rights by Los Alamos National Security LLC (LANL). Under the license rights, Metallicum had all rights, title and interest throughout the world in and to any and all inventions, original works of authorship, developments, concepts, know-how, and improvements on the patents or trade secrets whether or not patentable or registerable under copyright or similar laws.

 

In January 2009, the Company entered into a patent license agreement with Los Alamos National Security, LLC for the exclusive licensing use of certain technology relating to the manufacture and application of nanostructuring metals and alloys. Pursuant to such agreement the Company provided a non-refundable fee and 2,000,000 shares of common stock. Additionally, the Company is required to pay an annual license fee starting in February 2010 and royalties on future net sales.

 

In September 2009, the Company entered into a technology transfer agreement with Carpenter Technologies Corporation (“Carpenter”) pursuant to which Carpenter will fully develop, manufacture and market a new class of high strength metals under an exclusive technology transfer agreement from Manhattan Scientifics and the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The proprietary process will enable super-strength metals and alloys to make products that weigh far less than in the past and without significant cost premiums.

NOTE 2 – ORGANIZATION AND OPERATIONS (Continued)

 

On May 31, 2011, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (“Nanomedicine Agreement”) by and among the Company, Scientific Nanomedicine, Inc. (“Nanomedicine”), Edward, R. Flynn (“Flynn”) and Edward R. Flynn and Maureen A. Flynn, as Co-Trustees of the Edward R. Flynn and Maureen A. Flynn Revocable Trust u/t/a dated 10/25/2006 (“Trust”); and entered into a Purchase Agreement (“Senior Scientific Agreement”) by and among the Company, Senior Scientific LLC, (“Senior Scientific”) and Flynn.

 

Under the Nanomedicine Agreement, the Company has agreed to purchase all of the common stock of Nanomedicine. The purchase price for the common stock of Nanomedicine is 21,667,000 restricted shares of the Company’s voting common stock (less 7,667,000 shares already issued pursuant to the Acquisition Option Agreement, dated February 8, 2010, among the Company, Nanomedicine, Flynn and Senior Scientific. Nanomedicine holds the commercial rights to technology and intellectual property with respect to the early detection of diseases using nanotechnologies.

 

Under the Senior Scientific Agreement, the Company has agreed to purchase all of the membership interests of Senior Scientific. The purchase price for the membership interests of Senior Scientific is 1,000 restricted shares of the Company’s voting common stock. Senior Scientific operates a research laboratory in New Mexico.

 

Manhattan Scientifics success will depend in part on its ability to obtain patents and product license rights, maintain trade secrets, and operate without infringing on the proprietary rights of others, both in the United States and other countries. There can be no assurance that patents issued to or licensed by the Company will not be challenged, invalidated, or circumvented, or that the rights granted thereunder will provide proprietary protection or competitive advantages to the Company.

 

Prior to September 2009, the Company had been considered a development stage company. As a result of the September 2009 technology transfer agreement with Carpenter, the Company has fully commenced its planned operations and generation of significant revenues.

 

Accordingly, the Company has relied primarily upon private placements and subscription sales of stock to fund our continuing activities and acquisitions.

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND RELATED MATTERS

 

BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION:

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Manhattan Scientific, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries Tamarack, Teneo, Metallicum and Senior Scientific. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES:

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amount of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. A significant estimate includes the carrying value of the Company’s patents, fair value of the Company’s common stock, assumptions used in calculating the value of stock options, depreciation and amortization.

 

CASH CONCENTRATION:

 

The Company’s cash accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 for each financial institution we hold our accounts in. As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, we had cash balances of $700,000 and $129,000 exceeding the federally insured limits.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND RELATED MATTERS (Continued)

 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS:

 

License Agreements

 

In 2008, the Company obtained licenses to the rights of certain patents regarding nanostructured materials developed by another company as a result of the acquisition of Metallicum. The purchase price paid for these licenses was $305,000, which represented its fair value. The Company obtained an exclusive license on two patents and a non-exclusive license on the third patent. The value attributable to license agreements is being amortized over the period of its estimated benefit period of 10 years. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, accumulated amortization was $187,000 and $164,000, respectively. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company may be required to pay royalties, as defined, to the licensors.

 

In 2009, the Company entered into a patent license agreement with Los Alamos National Security LLC for the exclusive use of certain technology relating to the manufacture and application of nanostructuring metals and alloys. The purchase price paid for this license agreement was $33,000 based on the fair market value of 2,000,000 shares of common stock issued. The value attributable to license agreements is being amortized over the period of its estimated benefit period of 10 years. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, accumulated amortization was $19,000 and $16,000, respectively. Under the terms of the agreement the Company is required to pay an annual license fee of $10,000 starting in February 2010 and, may be required to pay royalties, as defined, to the licensors.

 

In 2011, the Company acquired Scientific Nanomedicine, Inc. which holds the commercial rights to technology and intellectual property with respect to the early detection of diseases using nanotechnologies. The acquisition of Scientific Nanomedicine, Inc. has been accounted for as an asset purchase since this company had no tangible assets or liabilities and did not have the business inputs and outputs to be considered a business. The purchase price totaling $1,300,000 (fair value of 21,667,000 shares of common stocks issued) has been allocated to in process research and development and is being amortized over its estimated benefit period of 10 years. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, accumulated amortization was $434,000 and $337,000. We subsequently dissolved Scientific Nanomedicine and transferred all remaining assets to Senior Scientific.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION:

 

To date the only revenue generated is from the sale of field technology developed by Metallicum related to the Company’s nanotechnology, services provided and sample materials.

 

Revenue is recognized when the four basic criteria of revenue recognition are met: (i) a contractual agreement exists; (ii) transfer of technology (intellectual property) has been completed or services have been rendered; (iii) the fee is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. Service revenue is recognized when specific milestones are reached or as service is provided if there are no discernible milestones.

 

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, Pre Codification SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements”, which provides a framework for measuring fair value under GAAP. Fair value is defined 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 standard also expands disclosures about instruments measured at fair value and establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 — Quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets;

 

Level 2 — Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and

 

Level 3 — Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND RELATED MATTERS (Continued)

 

The Company designates cash equivalents (consisting of money market funds) and investments in securities of publicly traded companies as Level 1. The total amount of the Company’s investment classified as Level 3 is de minimis.

 

The fair value of the Company’s debt as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 approximated their fair value at those times.

 

Fair value of financial instruments: The carrying amounts of financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, accounts payable, accrued expenses and notes payables approximated fair value as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 because of the relative short term nature of these instruments. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the fair value of the Company’s debt approximates carrying value.

 

STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation based on the fair value of all option grants or stock issuances made to employees or directors on or after its implementation date (the beginning of fiscal 2006), as well as a portion of the fair value of each option and stock grant made to employees or directors prior to the implementation date that represents the unvested portion of these share-based awards as of such implementation date, to be recognized as an expense, as codified in ASC 718. The Company calculates stock option-based compensation by estimating the fair value of each option as of its date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. These amounts are expensed over the respective vesting periods of each award using the straight-line attribution method. Compensation expense is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, and as such, amounts have been reduced by estimated forfeitures. The Company has historically issued stock options and vested and non-vested stock grants to employees and outside directors whose only condition for vesting has been continued employment or service during the related vesting or restriction period. The estimated fair value of grants of stock options and warrants to nonemployees of the Company is charged to expense, if applicable, in the financial statements.

 

BASIC AND DILUTED LOSS PER SHARE

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share,” the basic loss per share is computed by dividing the loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Basic net loss per share excludes the dilutive effect of stock options or warrants and convertible notes. Diluted net earnings (loss) per common share is determined using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents, consisting of shares that might be issued upon exercise of common stock options and warrants. In periods where losses are reported, the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding excludes common stock equivalents, because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

NOTE 6 – NOTES PAYABLE – OTHER

 

From October 21, 2011 to April 26, 2012, the Company issued convertible notes for $600,000 (the "Convertible Notes") of which $200,000 was received on October 21, 2011, $100,000 was received on January 31, 2012 and $300,000 was received on April 26, 2012. The non-interest bearing notes can be converted into the Company’s common stock, at any date after six months from the issuance of each Note, at a conversion price of 67% of the fair value of the Company’s common stock upon the date of conversion notice, subject to a floor price of approximately $0.041 for the note issued in October 2011, approximately $0.044 for the note issued in January 2012 and approximately $0.034 for the note issued in April 2012. The holder of the notes has not converted any portion of the notes as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013. Additionally, the note holder was issued warrants for 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.05 that expire on October 15, 2015 ("Warrants"). The conversion feature to the note payable has been accounted for as an original issue discount approximating $296,000 which has been fully accreted as of December 31, 2012. The warrant associated with the note has been accounted for as a debt discount with an approximate value of $296,000 which has been allocated to the note’s fully accreted value of $896,000 (original note amount plus original debt discount) on proportionate basis which amounted to $195,000. The warrant value of $252,000 was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model based on the following assumptions: 2 year term; volatility rate of 134% to 135%; and discount rate of 2.5%. For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company has recorded an expense associated with original debt discount and expense associated with the debt discount (warrants) of $422,000. Accordingly, the carrying net value of this note at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 totals $896,000, comprising of $600,000 (original face value) plus the fully accreted original debt discount of $296,000.

 

During 2014 and 2013, the Company issued convertible notes for $2,333,000 through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Senior Scientific, LLC. The convertible notes bear interest at 8%, mature four years from the date of issuance, and are convertible into either: (1) membership interests of Senior Scientific, LLC equal to the quotient of the principal due of the convertible notes divided by $2,500,000 multiplied by 18% of the total equity of Senior Scientific, LLC outstanding as of the date hereof; or (2) the number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to the quotient of the principal and interest payable due of the convertible notes divided by a conversion price of $0.055 per share. The Company may not prepay the convertible notes. In the event of a default and so long as the default exists, interest on the convertible notes will accrue at 10%. The Company must account for all accrued interest on the convertible notes on the first calendar day of each quarter which $136,000 and $70,000 has been recorded as accrued interest payable as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. The conversion feature to the note payable has been accounted for as an original issue discount approximating $878,000 which $96,000 has been accreted as of September 30, 2014. The Company has recorded the accreted original issue discount as interest expense totaling $28,000 and $75,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014. Accordingly, the carrying net value of these notes at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 totals $1,551,000 and $1,287,000, respectively, comprising of $2,333,000 (original face value) plus the unamortized debt discount of $783,000 at September 30, 2014, and $1,500,000 (original face value) plus the unamortized original debt discount of $213,000 at December 31, 2013.

NOTE 7 – TECHNOLOGY SALE AND SUB-LICENSE AGREEMENT

 

On September 12, 2009, the Company entered into a contract with Carpenter Technology Corp. to sell certain nanostructured metal technologies acquired from Metallicum, Inc, its wholly owned subsidiary, to Carpenter and to provide sub-license rights to Carpenter covering license agreements that the Company has from Los Alamos Laboratories. The agreement has two distinct elements: a sale and services agreement and a sub-license agreement. The first element irrevocably transfers the field technology to Carpenter Technology Corporation and Carpenter many develop or use the technology for its own benefit. Carpenter agrees to pay a sales price of $600,000 and pay royalties for products developed using this technology. In addition, the Company can receive additional service income for assisting Carpenter in the production process. These additional services are elective and do not affect the sale of the technology. The second element of the agreement is a sub-license to Carpenter for patents (the LANL patents) that are licensed by the Company from Los Alamos Laboratories. The sub-license agreement obligates Carpenter to pay MSI a running royalty on the sales of products that require license to the LANL patents but does not have any upfront fee or annual minimum royalties.

 

The Company recognized the sales revenue upon transfer of the technology and the service income over the term of the agreement. The royalty income will be recognized as products are developed using the field technology or sub-license.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company earned $150,000 and $300,000, and $172,000 and $342,000, respectively, recorded such amount as revenue. The amount received by the Company relates to services provided under the first element of the contract regarding additional services. The Company earned service income for time that a consultant to the Company, Dr. Lowe, made himself available to Carpenter in accordance with the Technology Transfer Agreement. The fees earned pursuant to the agreement with Carpenter are being proportionately recognized as revenue based upon the total fees to be collected over a 42 month period. The 42 month period is based on the time periods described in the Agreement (6 months after effective date), (12 months after effective date), and (each of the first 3 anniversaries of Annuity date where the “Annuity date” is the date of the latter of 18 months after the effective date or the date Manhattan Scientific fully satisfies its duties under of the Agreement). On April 1, 2014, the Company received $600,000 as a minimum royalty payment. As noted above, the Company recognized $450,000 as revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 which the remaining $150,000 has been recorded as deferred revenue and will be recognized ratably over the 3-months ended December 31, 2014.

 

In January 2013, the Company entered into a licensing agreement with a party granting certain licensing rights to the Company's nanostructured metal technology. As consideration: the Company received $180,000 in January 2013, and will receive $30,000 by June 1, 2013; $30,000 by December 31, 2013; $30,000 by December 1, 2014; and $30,000 upon commercial launch by the party or the latest December 1, 2015. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded the receipt of $-0- and $30,000, $30,000 and $210,000, respectively, as revenue.

In October 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with a consultant to provide various public relations services over a one year term with such consultant will receive 200,000 shares of common stock valued at $26,000 or $0.13 per share.

 

In October, 2014, Manhattan Scientifics, Inc. (the “Company”) closed the fourth and final tranche of financing in the aggregate amount of $167,000 under the financing agreement entered with certain investors and Senior Scientific, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary, as discussed in Note 6. The Company is on schedule with the instrument assembly and prove-ins set forth in the financing agreement. On April 3, 2013, the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Senior Scientific, LLC ("Subsidiary"), entered into Convertible Note Purchase Agreements with the April 2013 Investors, providing for the sale by the Subsidiary to the April 2013 Investors of Convertible Promissory Notes in the aggregate amount of up to $2,500,000 (the "Convertible Notes"). The closing of the initial $1,000,000 in Convertible Notes occurred on April 3, 2013, the second tranche of $500,000 closed on October 1, 2013, the third tranche in the aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 was completed during March 2014 and April 2014, and the fourth and final tranche totaling $500,000 was completed during September and October 2014.

OVERVIEW

 

The Company’s goal is to nurture visionary technologies into life changing success stories and Metallicum and Senior Scientific are pursuing that goal.

 

The Company operates as a technology incubator that seeks to acquire, develop and commercialize life-enhancing technologies in various fields, with emphasis in the areas of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the use and manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. To achieve this goal, the Company continues to identify emerging technologies through strategic alliances with scientific laboratories, educational institutions, scientists and leaders in industry and government. The Company and its executives have a long standing relationship with Los Alamos Laboratories in New Mexico.

 

TWO BUSINESSES EXIST WITHIN MANHATTAN SCIENTIFICS

 

Two nanotechnology businesses exist within the Company. Both “units” are wholly-owned subsidiaries, both focused on nanotechnology applications in medicine.

 

The first (Metallicum) – successfully demonstrates our business-model, a licensing model, given that we are an inventions commercialization company.

 

Manhattan’s second business is called Senior Scientific which is at the crossroads of biotechnology and nanotechnology.

 

Our novel bioimaging and nanomagnetic detection systems have been developed specifically to detect cancer and other diseases earlier and with higher specificity than is currently possible. We have developed proprietary hardware and software for the highly sensitive detection of nanomagnetic particles that can be linked to antibodies for the detection and treatment of cancer and other human diseases—all without the use of ionizing radiation or large magnetic fields.

 

Our novel technologies make possible the earlier detection of cancer in vivo, the ability to analyze biopsies with greater sensitivity and accuracy, the ability to monitor the therapeutic effectiveness of anticancer treatments—both in humans and in animal models—and allow us to detect cancer recurrence with significantly improved sensitivity. Please see: www.SeniorScientific.com

 

The technology was developed by Edward R. Flynn, PhD, Senior Scientific’s founder and Chief Scientist, in collaboration with Richard S. Larson, MD, PhD, Executive Vice Chancellor of UNM Health Sciences Center in New Mexico.

In June 2008, we acquired Metallicum and its licensed patented technology. We entered into a stock purchase agreement with Metallicum and the former shareholders of Metallicum to acquire all of the outstanding capital in exchange for 15,000,000 restricted shares of our common stock. An additional 15,000,000 shares of our common stock will be payable to the former shareholders of Metallicum in the event of meeting certain milestones. At December 31, 2011, one milestone was met. Metallicum was granted an exclusive license by The Los Alamos National Laboratory on patents related to nanostructured metals. In September 2009, we entered into a technology transfer agreement and sale with Carpenter Technology Corporation, (“Carpenter”) wherein Carpenter will fully develop, manufacture and market a new class of high strength metals. We earn annual minimum revenues from these agreements and we expect to earn licensing royalties when Carpenter begins selling our licensed technology.

 

On May 31, 2011, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization to acquire Senior Scientific. The total purchase price was 21,668,000 restricted shares of our common stock (less 7,667,000 shares previously issued pursuant to an option agreement). As a result of this acquisition, we own patented technologies that can use biosafe nanoparticles and sensitive magnetic sensors to detect and measure cancer cells in biopsies or in the human body with the potential to transform how cancer is detected and treated.

As of September 30, 2014, we had $1,212,000 in cash. We intend to satisfy our capital requirements for the next 12 months from our cash on hand and additional sale of debt and/or equity securities.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amount of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. A significant estimate includes the carrying value of our patents, fair value of our common stock, assumptions used in calculating the value of stock options, depreciation and amortization.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets:

 

We assess the impairment of our long-lived assets periodically in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FAS") Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) Topic 10. Whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable, we will compare undiscounted net cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets to the carrying amount of those assets. When these undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying amounts of the assets, we will record impairment losses to write the asset down to fair value, measured by the discounted estimated net future cash flows expected to be generated from the assets. To date there has been no impairment.

License Agreements

 

In 2008, the Company obtained licenses to the rights of certain patents regarding nano-structured materials developed by another company as a result of the acquisition of Metallicum. The purchase price paid for these licenses was $305,000, which represents its fair value. The Company obtained an exclusive license on two patents and a non-exclusive license on the third patent. The value attributable to license agreements is being amortized over the period of its estimated benefit period of 10 years. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company may be required to pay royalties, as defined, to the licensors.

 

In 2009, the Company entered into a patent license agreement with Los Alamos National Security LLC for the exclusive use of certain technology relating to the manufacture and application of nanostructuring metals and alloys. The value attributable to license agreements is being amortized over the period of its estimated benefit period of 10 years. Under the terms of the agreement the Company is required to pay an annual license fee of $10,000 and, may be required to pay royalties, as defined, to the licensors.

 

On May 31, 2011, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization to acquire Senior Scientific and Scientific Nanomedicine. The total purchase price was 21,668,000 restricted shares of our common stock (less 7,667,000 shares previously issued pursuant to an option agreement. As a result of this acquisition, we own patented technologies that can use biosafe nanoparticles and sensitive magnetic sensors to detect and measure cancer cells in biopsies or in the human body with the potential to revolutionize how cancer is detected and treated.

 

In January 2013, the Company entered into a licensing agreement with a party granting certain licensing rights to the Company's nanostructured metal technology. As consideration: the Company received $180,000 in January 2013, and will receive $30,000 by June 1, 2013; $30,000 by December 31, 2013; $30,000 by December 1, 2014; and $30,000 upon commercial launch by the party or the latest December 1, 2015.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when the four basic criteria of revenue recognition are met: (i) a contractual agreement exists; (ii) transfer of technology (intellectual property) has been completed or services have been rendered; (iii) the fee is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. Service revenue is recognized when specific milestones are reached or as service is provided if there are no discernible milestones.

 

Investments: Available-for-Sale Investments

 

Investments that we designate as available-for-sale are reported at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). We determine the cost of the investment sold based on the specific identification method. Our available-for-sale investments include Marketable equity securities. We acquire these equity investments for the promotion of business and strategic objectives. We record the realized gains or losses on the sale or exchange of marketable equity securities in gains (losses) on other equity investments, net.

 

Stock-Based Compensation:

 

The Company follows the provision of FASB ASC Topic 718 for the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards to employees, directors and non-employees. Additionally, the Company follows the SEC’s Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107 “Share-Based Payment” (“SAB 107”), as amended by Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 110 (“SAB 110”), which provides supplemental application guidance based on the views of the SEC. The Company estimates the expected term, which represents the period of time from the grant date that the Company expects its stock options to remain outstanding, using the simplified method as permitted by SAB 107 and SAB 110. Under this method, the expected term is estimated as the mid-point between the time the options vest and their contractual terms. The Company continues to apply the simplified method because it does not have sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate the expected terms due to the limited period of time its equity shares have been publicly traded and the limited number of its options which have so far vested and become eligible for exercise.

 

The estimated fair value of grants of stock options and warrants to our nonemployees is charged to expense, if applicable, in the financial statements. These options vest in the same manner as the employee options granted under each of the option plans as described above.

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to include disclosure under this item. 

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We conducted an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the company in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures also include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive and principal financial officers concluded as of September 30, 2014 that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the material weaknesses in our internal controls over financial reporting discussed immediately below.

 

Identified Material Weakness

 

A material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting is a control deficiency, or combination of control deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

 

Management identified the following material weakness during its assessment of internal controls over financial reporting:

 

Resources : We had one full-time employee in general management and no full-time employees with the requisite expertise in the key functional areas of finance and accounting. As a result, there is a lack of proper segregation of duties necessary to insure that all transactions are accounted for accurately and in a timely manner.

 

Written Policies & Procedures : We need to prepare written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting to establish a formal process to close our books monthly on an accrual basis and account for all transactions, including equity transactions, and prepare, review and submit SEC filings in a timely manner.

 

Audit Committee : We do not have, and are not required, to have an audit committee. An audit committee would improve oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures.

 

(b) Changes In Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2014, the Company prepared written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting to establish a formal process to close our books monthly on an accrual basis and account for all transactions, including equity transactions. There were no other changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during this fiscal quarter that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to have a materially affect, on our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We are subject from time to time to litigation, claims and suits arising in the ordinary course of business. As of September 30, 2013, we were not a party to any material litigation, claim or suit whose outcome could have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in the Common Stock involves a high degree of risk. In addition to the other information in this Report, the following risk factors should be considered carefully in evaluating the Company and our business. If you decide to buy our securities, you should be able to afford a complete loss of your investment.

 

WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOP AND COMMERCIALIZE OUR NEW TECHNOLOGIES WHICH WOULD RESULT IN CONTINUED LOSSES.

 

We are currently developing new technologies and a commercial product. We have generated our first revenues but we are unable to project when we will achieve regular profitability, if at all. As is the case with any new technology, we expect the development process to continue. We cannot assure that our resources will be able to develop and commercialize our technology fast enough to meet market requirements. We can also not assure that our technology will gain market acceptance and that we will be able to overcome obstacles, such as potential FDA approvals. The failure to successfully develop and commercialize the technologies would result in continued losses and may require us to curtail operations.

 

THE SUCCESS OF OUR BUSINESS MAY REQUIRE CONTINUED FUNDING. IF WE CANNOT RAISE THE MONEY WE NEED TO SUPPORT OUR OPERATIONS UNTIL WE EARN SIGNIFICANT REVENUES, WE MAY BE REQUIRED TO CURTAIL OR TO CEASE OUR OPERATIONS AND YOU COULD LOSE YOUR ENTIRE INVESTMENT.

 

Our ability to develop our business depends upon our receipt of money to continue our operations while we introduce our products and a market for them develops. If this funding is not received as needed, it is unlikely that we could continue our business, in which case you would lose your entire investment. Our ability to access the capital markets has been hindered generally by the general difficult economic climate, beginning in 2008, for small technology concept companies, without significant revenues or earnings.

 

To the extent that we need additional funding, we cannot assure you that such financing will be available to us when needed, on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may be required to curtail the commercialization of our products and possibly cease our operations.

 

OUR ABILITY TO EFFECTUATE OUR BUSINESS MODEL MAY BE LIMITED, WHICH WOULD ADVERSELY EFFECT OUR BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL CONDITIONS.

 

Our future performance will depend to a substantial degree upon our ability to effectuate and generate revenues from our licensing and royalty business model. As a result, we may continue to incur substantial operating losses until such time as we are able to generate revenues from the sale or license of our products. There can be no assurance that businesses and customers will adopt our technology and products, or that businesses and prospective customers will agree to pay for or license our products. In the event that we are not able to significantly increase the number of customers that purchase or license our products, or if we are unable to charge the necessary prices or license fees, our financial condition and results of operations will be materially and adversely affected.

 

 
18

 

WE MAY FACE STRONG COMPETITION FROM LARGER, ESTABLISHED COMPANIES.

 

We likely will face intense competition from other companies, both globally and within the United States, in the development of our cancer detection technology and nano-metal technologies, virtually all of which can be expected to have longer operating histories, greater name recognition, larger installed customer bases and significantly more financial resources and research and development facilities than Manhattan Scientifics. There can be no assurance that developments by our current or potential competitors will not render our proposed products obsolete.

 

WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY PROTECT OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR WE COULD BECOME INVOLVED IN LITIGATION WITH OTHERS REGARDING OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. EITHER OF THESE EVENTS COULD HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE EFFECT ON OUR BUSINESS.

 

We rely on a combination of intellectual property law, nondisclosure, trade secret and other contractual and technical measures to protect our proprietary right. Our success will depend, in part, on our technology’s commercial viability and on the strength of our intellectual property rights. However, we cannot assure you that these provisions will be adequate to protect our intellectual property. In addition, the laws of certain foreign countries do not protect intellectual property rights to the same extent as the laws of the United States.

 

Although we believe that our intellectual property does not infringe upon the proprietary rights of third parties, competitors may claim that we have infringed on their products.

 

We could incur substantial costs in defending ourselves in suits brought against us for alleged infringement of another party’s intellectual property rights as well as in enforcing our rights against others, and if we are found to infringe, the manufacture, sale and use of our or our customers’ or partners’ products could be enjoined. Any claims against us, with or without merit, would likely be time-consuming, requiring our management team to dedicate substantial time to addressing the issues presented. Furthermore, the parties bringing claims may have greater resources than we do.

 

OUR MANAGEMENT IS ABLE TO EXERCISE SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCE OVER ALL MATTERS REQUIRING SHAREHOLDER APPROVAL.

 

Our existing directors and executive officers are the beneficial owners of approximately 18% of the outstanding shares of common stock, excluding stock options and warrants. As a result, our existing directors, executive officers, principal shareholders and their respective affiliates, if acting together, would be able to exercise significant influence over all matters requiring shareholder approval, including the election of directors and the approval of significant corporate transactions. Such concentration of ownership may also have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control of our company.

 

 
19

 

THE TRADING PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK MAY DECREASE DUE TO FACTORS BEYOND OUR CONTROL.

 

The trading price of our common stock is subject to significant fluctuations in response to numerous factors, including without limitation:

 

 

·

variations in anticipated or actual results of operations;

 

·

announcements of new products or technological innovations by us or our competitors;

 

·

changes in earnings estimates of operational results by analysts;

 

·

inability of market makers to combat short positions on the stock;

 

·

an overall downturn in the financial markets and stock markets;

 

·

the use of stock to pay employees and consultants if sufficient working capital is not available;

 

·

inability of the market to absorb large blocks of stock sold into the market; and

 

·

developments or disputes concerning our intellectual property.

 

Moreover, the stock market from time-to-time has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations, which have particularly affected the market prices for small technology companies without significant revenues. These broad market fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of our Common Stock. If our shareholders sell substantial amounts of their common stock in the public market, the price of our common stock could fall. These sales also might make it more difficult for us to sell equity or equity-related securities in the future at a price we deem appropriate.

 

ALL OF OUR CURRENT REVENUE IS GENERATED FROM ONE CUSTOMER.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, all of our revenue was generated by one customer, Carpenter Technology Corporation. If Carpenter Technology Corporation was unable to satisfy its obligations under our agreements, it would materially impact our revenue, net income and financial position.

 

WE HAVE NOT PAID CASH DIVIDENDS AND IT IS UNLIKELY THAT WE WILL PAY CASH DIVIDENDS IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

 

We plan to use all of our earnings, to the extent we have significant earnings, to fund our operations. We do not plan to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. We cannot guarantee that we will, at any time, generate sufficient surplus cash that would be available for distribution as a dividend to the holders of our Common Stock. You should not expect to receive cash dividends on our Common Stock.

 

WE MAY NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT CAPITAL TO RUN OUR OPERATIONS.

 

If we are unable to obtain further financing, it may jeopardize our ability to continue our operations. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity and/or convertible debt securities, the issuance of such securities could result in dilution to our shareholders and/or increased debt service commitments. If adequate funds are not available, we may be unable to sufficiently develop or maintain our existing operations.

 

 
20

 

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO ISSUE ADDITIONAL SHARES OF OUR COMMON STOCK WITHOUT ASKING FOR SHAREHOLDER APPROVAL, WHICH COULD CAUSE YOUR INVESTMENT TO BE DILUTED.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation currently authorizes the Board of Directors to issue up to 950,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 1,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock. The power of the Board of Directors to issue shares of Common Stock or warrants or options to purchase shares of Common Stock is generally not subject to shareholder approval. Accordingly, any additional issuance of our Common Stock may have the effect of further diluting your investment.

 

We require substantial working capital to fund our business. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity, equity-related or convertible debt securities, those securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of the holders of our Common Stock. The issuance of additional Common Stock or securities convertible into Common Stock by our management will also have the effect of further diluting the proportionate equity interest and voting power of holders of our Common Stock.

 

WE MAY RUN OUT OF AUTHORIZED CAPITAL PRIOR TO RECEIVING SHAREHOLDER APPROVAL TO AMEND OUR CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE OUR AUTHORIZED CAPITAL.

 

As of September 30, 2014, our certificate of incorporation, as amended, authorizes us to issue 950,000,000 shares of common stock. If we are not able to increase our authorized capital, we may not be able to raise additional funds or pay service providers which could be harmful to our business or cause us to cease operations altogether.

 

LIMITED PUBLIC MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK MAY AFFECT OUR SHAREHOLDERS' ABILITY TO SELL OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

Our Common Stock currently is quoted on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board, which is generally considered to be a less efficient market than national exchanges. Consequently, the liquidity of our securities could be impaired, not only in the number of securities which could be bought and sold, but also through SEC regulations, delays in the timing of transactions, difficulties in obtaining price quotations, reduction in security analysts' and the new media's coverage of us, if any, and lower prices for our securities than might otherwise be attained. This circumstance could have an adverse effect on the ability of an investor to sell any shares of our common stock as well as on the selling price for such shares. In addition, the market price of our common stock may be significantly affected by various additional factors, including, but not limited to, our business performance, industry dynamics or changes in general economic conditions.

 

APPLICABILITY OF "PENNY STOCK RULES" TO BROKER-DEALER SALES OF OUR COMMON STOCK COULD HAVE A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON THE LIQUIDITY AND MARKET PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

A penny stock is generally a stock that is not listed on national securities exchange and is quoted on the "pink sheets" or on the OTC Bulletin Board, has a price per share of less than $5.00 and is issued by a company with net tangible assets less than $5 million.

 

The penny stock trading rules impose additional duties and responsibilities upon broker-dealers and salespersons effecting purchase and sale transactions in Common Stock and other equity securities, including determination of the purchaser's investment suitability, delivery of certain information and disclosures to the purchaser, and receipt of a specific purchase agreement before effecting the purchase transaction.

 

Many broker-dealers will not affect transactions in penny stocks, except on an unsolicited basis, in order to avoid compliance with the penny stock trading rules. When our Common Stock is subject to the penny stock trading rules, such rules may materially limit or restrict the ability to resell our Common Stock, and the liquidity typically associated with other publicly traded equity securities may not exist.

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

     
 

·

In March 2013, the board of directors of the Company approved that all members of the Company’s board of directors that have been serving in that capacity for at least one year as of September 30, 2013, will be issued 500,000 stock options on September 30, 2014 with a 10 year life. The Company used the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the compensation expense for the option grants using the following inputs: exercise price of $0.09 per share, risk free rate of 2.0%, volatility of 125% and zero dividends. The aforementioned options were granted as of September 30, 2014 which the Company recorded compensation expense totaling $258,000 as of September 30, 2014.

     
 

·

On October 1, 2014, the Company closed the fourth tranche of financing in the aggregate amount of $500,000 under the financing agreement entered with Raymond A. Mason, William B. Jones and the Ferdinand J. Crovato Trust (the “April 2013 Investors”). The Company is on schedule with the instrument assembly and prove-ins set forth in the financing agreement. On April 3, 2013, the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Senior Scientific, LLC ("Subsidiary"), entered into Convertible Note Purchase Agreements with the April 2013 Investors, providing for the sale by the Subsidiary to the April 2013 Investors of Convertible Promissory Notes in the aggregate amount of up to $2,500,000 (the "Convertible Notes"). The closing of the initial $1,000,000 in Convertible Notes occurred on April 3, 2013, the second tranche of $500,000 closed on October 1, 2013, the third tranche of $500,000 was closed on April 1, 2014, and the fourth tranche of $500,000 was completed on October 1, 2014. As previously reported, the Company and the Subsidiary entered a Guaranty and Security Agreements with the April 2013 Investors whereby the Company agreed to unconditionally guaranty to the April 2013 Investors the full, prompt and punctual performance with respect to the Convertible Notes, agreed to subordinate any claim that the Company may have against the Subsidiary to that of the April 2013 Investors and granted the April 2013 Investors a security interest in the Company’s assets including its ownership interest in the Subsidiary.

     
 

 

The Convertible Notes bear interest at 8%, mature four (4) years from the date of issuance and are convertible at the April 2013 Investors options at any time upon ten (10) days written notice to the Company into either: (1) the number of membership interests of the Subsidiary equal to the quotient of the principal due under the respective convertible promissory note divided by $2,500,000 multiplied by 18% of the total equity of the Subsidiary outstanding as of the date hereof; or (2) the number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to the quotient of the principal and interest payable under the Convertible Notes divided by a conversion price of $0.055 per share.

     
 

 

The Company may not prepay the Convertible Notes. In the event of a default and so long as any default exists, interest on the Convertible Notes will accrue at 10%. The Company must pay all accrued interest on the Convertible Notes on the first calendar day of each quarter, commencing on July 13, 2013.

     
 

 

The initial sale of the Convertible Notes in the principal amount of $1,000,000 was completed on April 3, 2013, the second tranche in the principal amount of $500,000 was completed on October 1, 2013 and the third tranche in the aggregate principal amount of $500,000 was completed on April 1, 2014. As of the date hereof, the Company is obligated on $2,000,000 in aggregate face amounts of the Convertible Notes issued to the April 2013 Investors. The Convertible Notes are debt obligations arising other than in the ordinary course of business which constitute direct financial obligations of the Company.

     
 

·

In July 2014, the Company issued 70,000 shares of common stock to seven employees as a bonus compensation previously accrued and recorded as stock payable at June 30, 2014, at a fair value of $0.10 per share or a total of $7,000.

     
 

·

In July 2014 and August 2014, the Company issued 3,658,913 shares of common stock to five of its board of directors related to the exercise of options for 4,000,000 shares with an exercise price of $0.013 previously granted in 2007 on a cashless basis based on a fair market value of $0.17 per share.

 

 

 

 

·

In August 2014, the Company issued 800,000 shares of common stock related to a previously granted stock option to a consultant with an exercise price of $0.07 for a total cash value of $56,000.

 

 

 

 

·

In September 2014, the Company issued 380,660 shares of common stock to a consultant for services rendered with a fair value of $14,000.

 

The above securities were offered and sold to the parties in private placement transactions made in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) under the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder. Each of the parties are accredited investors as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933.
