On March 29, 2010, the Company completed a $1,550,000 private placement with certain investors, including investment funds affiliated with Signet Healthcare Partners, G.P. and Jane E. Hager (the Series C Offering). As part of the Series C Offering, the Company issued 1,550 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock. The Series C Convertible Preferred Stock has a par value of $0.01 per share and the holders are entitled to quarterly dividends at an annual rate of 5%, when and if declared by the Board of Directors. Furthermore, each share of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of common stock equal to (i) 1,000 plus any accrued and unpaid dividends, divided by (ii) $0.69 (the closing price of the Companys common stock on the date of issuance of the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock).
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
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 reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include allowances for excess and obsolete inventories, allowances for doubtful accounts, provisions for income taxes and related deferred tax asset valuation allowance, stock based compensation, and accruals for environmental cleanup and remediation costs. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Loss Per Share
Basic net (loss) per share of common stock is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net (loss) per share of common stock is computed using the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potential dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. Due to the net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, the effect of the Companys potential dilutive common stock equivalents was anti-dilutive for each period; as a result, the basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding and net (loss) per common share are the same. Potentially dilutive common stock equivalents include options and warrants to purchase the Companys common stock and the conversion of preferred stock, which were excluded from the net (loss) per share calculations due to their anti-dilutive effect amounted to 5,430,675 for 2011 and 20,423,446 for 2010.
The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when it has persuasive evidence of an arrangement, delivery has occurred or contractual services rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collection is reasonably assured in conformity with ASC 605, Revenue Recognition.
The Company derives its revenues from three basic types of transactions: sales of manufactured product, licensing of technology, and research and product development services performed for third parties. Due to differences in the substance of these transaction types, the transactions require, and the Company utilizes, different revenue recognition policies for each.
Product Sales: The Company recognizes revenue when title transfers to its customers, which is generally upon shipment of products. The revenues associated with these transactions, net of appropriate cash discounts, product returns and sales reserves, are recorded upon shipment of the products.
Licensing and Royalty Income: Revenues earned under licensing or sublicensing contracts are recognized as earned in accordance with the terms of the agreements. The Company recognizes royalty revenue based on royalty reports received from the licensee.
Research and Development Income: The Company enters into product development agreements with its customers to perform product development services. Product development revenues are recognized in accordance with the product development agreement upon the completion of each phase of development and when we have no future performance obligations relating to such phase of development. Revenue recognition requires the Company to assess progress against contracted obligations to assure completion of each stage. Payments under these arrangements are generally non-refundable and are reported as deferred until they are recognized as revenue. If no such arrangement exists, product development fees are recognized ratably over the entire period during which the services are performed.
In making such assessments, judgments are required to evaluate contingencies such as potential variances in schedule and the costs, the impact of change orders, liability claims, contract disputes and achievement of contractual performance standards. Changes in total estimated contract cost and losses, if any, are recognized in the period they are determined. Billings on research and development contracts are typically based upon terms agreed upon by the Company and customer and are stated in the contracts themselves and do not always align with the revenues recognized by the Company.
Major customers of the Company are defined as having revenue greater than 10% of total gross revenue. For the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, two of our customers accounted for 56% and four of our customers accounted for 70% of our revenue, respectively. Two of these customers are the same for both periods. Accounts receivable related to the Companys major customers comprised 53% of all accounts receivable as of March 31, 2011. The loss of one or more of these customers could have a significant impact on our revenues and harm our business and results of operations.

Work in progress
Under the 1998 Directors Stock Plan, as amended, 600,000 shares of the Companys common stock are authorized under the plan and reserved for issuance to non-employee directors, in lieu of payment of directors fees in cash. In November 2009, the Companys Board of Directors approved the elimination of payment of directors fees in stock under this plan beginning in the fourth quarter of 2009.
The 1999 Director Stock Option Plan, as amended (the Director Plan), provides for the grant of stock options to non-employee directors of the Company at an exercise price equal to the fair market value per share on the date of the grant. An aggregate of 1,975,000 shares have been approved and authorized for issuance pursuant to this plan. A total of 1,939,798 options have been granted to non-employee directors through March 31, 2011. The options granted under the Director Plan vest in full one year after their respective grant dates and have a maximum term of ten years.
The 1999 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the 1999 Plan), replaced all previously authorized employee stock option plans, and no additional options may be granted under those plans. Under the 1999 Plan, options or stock awards may be granted to all of the Company's employees, officers, directors, consultants and advisors to purchase a maximum of 3,200,000 shares of common stock. However, pursuant to the terms of the 1999 Plan, no awards may be granted after March 16, 2009. A total of 2,892,500 options, having a maximum term of ten years, have been granted at 100% of the fair market value of the Company's common stock at the time of grant. Options outstanding under the 1999 Plan are generally exercisable in cumulative increments over four years commencing one year from the date of grant.
On June 26, 2009, the Board of Directors adopted, and the Companys stockholders subsequently approved by partial written consent, the IGI Laboratories, Inc. 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the 2009 Plan). The 2009 Plan became effective on July 29, 2009, 20 days after the initial mailing of the Companys Information Statement on Schedule 14C to its stockholders. The 2009 Plan allows the Company to continue to grant options and restricted stock, as under the 1999 Plan, but also authorizes the Board of Directors to grant a broad range of other equity-based awards, including stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units and performance awards. The 2009 Plan has been created, pursuant to and consistent with the Companys current compensation philosophy, to assist the Company in attracting, retaining and rewarding designated employees, directors, consultants and other service providers of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, in a manner that will be cost efficient to the Company from both an economic and financial accounting perspective. On April 12, 2010, the Board of Directors adopted, and the Companys stockholders subsequently approved, an amendment and restatement of the 2009 Equity Incentive Plan to increase the number of shares of common stock available for grant under such plan by adding 2,000,000 shares of common stock. The 2009 Plan, as amended on May 19, 2010, authorizes up to 4,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock for issuance pursuant to the terms of the 2009 Plan. The maximum number of shares that may be subject to awards made to any individual in any single calendar year under the 2009 Plan is 1,000,000 shares. As of March 31, 2011, options to purchase 260,000 shares of common stock were outstanding under the 2009 Plan and 1,039,000 shares of restricted stock had been granted under the 2009 Plan.
The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing formula that uses assumptions noted in the following table. Expected volatilities and risk-free interest rates are based upon the expected life of the grant. The interest rates used are the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of the grant.
For the three months ended
March 31, 2011
61.5% - 61.9%
Expected term (in years)
A summary of option activity under the 1999 Plan, the Director Plan and the 2009 Plan as of March 31, 2011 and changes during the period are presented below:
Outstanding as of 1/1/2011
Outstanding as of 3/31/2011
Exercisable as of 3/31/2011
Based upon application of the Black-Scholes option-pricing formula described above, the weighted-average grant-date fair value of options granted during the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $0.73.
The following table summarizes information regarding options outstanding and exercisable at March 31, 2011:
Range of Exercise Prices
Range of Exercise Prices
As of March 31, 2011, the intrinsic value of the options outstanding is $511,300 and the intrinsic value of the options exercisable is $501,300. The total intrinsic value of the options exercised during the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $10,050. As of March 31, 2011, there was approximately $86,800 of total unrecognized compensation cost that will be recognized through October 2012 related to non-vested share-based compensation arrangements granted under the Plans.
The Company periodically grants restricted stock awards to certain officers and other employees that typically vest one to three years from their grant date. The Company recognized $56,500 and $98,000, respectively, of compensation expense during the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 related to restricted stock awards. Stock compensation expense is recognized over the vesting period of the restricted stock. At March 31, 2011, the Company had approximately $427,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested restricted stock, all of which will be recognized from April 2011 through April 2013.
Non-vested balance at January 1, 2011
Changes during the period:
Non-vested balance at March 31, 2011
See Note 12 below regarding restricted stock award to Philip S. Forte, the Companys Chief Financial Officer upon his resignation as of January 11, 2011.
As a result of the Companys history of continuing tax losses, the Company does not have a current tax provision and has recorded a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax asset. The Company has not recorded a liability for unrecognized tax benefits at March 31, 2011 and no significant changes are expected in the next twelve months. The tax years 2007-2010 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject.
There was no accrued interest related to unrecognized tax benefits at March 31, 2011.
The Companys ability to use net operating loss carry forwards may be subject to substantial limitation in future periods under certain provisions of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, which limit the utilization of net operating losses upon a more than 50% change in ownership of the Companys stock that is held by 5% or greater stockholders. The Company is currently examining the application of Section 382 with respect to an ownership change that took place during 2009 and 2010, as well as the possibility of such limitation having any material effect on the application of net operating loss carry forwards in the immediate future. The Company believes that it is likely that a change in ownership took place and that the net operating loss carryforwards will be limited.
On December 12, 2005, the Company extended its license agreement for an additional ten years with Novavax, Inc. for $1,000,000. This extension entitles the Company to exclusive use of the Novasome® lipid vesicle encapsulation and certain other technologies (each a Microencapsulation Technology, and collectively, the Technologies) in the fields of (i) animal pharmaceuticals, biologicals and other animal health products; (ii) foods, food applications, nutrients and flavorings; (iii) cosmetics, consumer products and dermatological over-the-counter and prescription products (excluding certain topically delivered hormones); (iv) fragrances; and (v) chemicals, including herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, paints and coatings, photographic chemicals and other specialty chemicals, and the processes for making the same (collectively, the IGI Field) through 2015. This payment is being amortized ratably over the ten-year period. The Company recorded amortization expense of $25,000 related to this agreement for each of the three month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010.
Note Payable Related Party
On December 21, 2010, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement with Amzak Capital Management, LLC (the Lender) pursuant to which the Lender has agreed to extend a $3,000,000 credit facility to the Company (the Credit Agreement ). The Company drew down $500,000 in principal amount in March 2011.
To secure payment of the amounts financed under the Credit Agreement, the Company has granted to the Lender a security interest in and against, generally, all of its tangible and intangible assets, except intellectual property, pursuant to that certain Pledge and Security Agreement with the Lender dated December 21, 2010. In addition, the Company has pledged to the Lender its equity interests in IGEN, Inc., one of the Companys wholly-owned subsidiaries.
Under the Credit Agreement the Company has agreed to certain covenants customarily found in such agreements including, but not limited to, a covenant prohibiting the Company from entering into a merger or acquisition of the Company without the prior consent of the Lender if any advances remain outstanding and a covenant requiring the Company to maintain a certain loan to collateral ratio. Upon the breach of a covenant, without cure, the Lender will have certain remedies customarily found in such agreements including, but not limited to, the ability to cause all of the loans outstanding to be immediately due and payable and to terminate the Credit Agreement.
Upon funding of each Advance (as defined therein), the Company shall make payments of accrued interest on the unpaid Accreted Principal Amount (as defined therein) of each promissory note. The interest rate applicable to each promissory note shall be 14% per annum and interest payments are due on each March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 during the term of the Credit Agreement, commencing March 31, 2011. The Company may prepay any Advance in connection with the consummation of a Liquidity Event (as defined therein) or at any time subsequent to December 21, 2012.
In addition, as consideration for entering into the Credit Agreement, on December 21, 2010, the Company issued to the Lender a ten-year warrant to purchase certain shares of the Companys common stock, at an exercise price of $0.01 per share (the Warrant). The Warrant is immediately exercisable for 881,331 shares of Common Stock (the Initial Warrant Shares) with the remaining shares of Common Stock representing 1% of the Fully Diluted Shares (as defined therein) as of the Conditional Warrant Exercise Date (as defined therein) (the Conditional Warrant Shares) becoming exercisable July 1, 2012 if the Company has achieved certain milestones related to the Companys product development or financial growth. The Warrant is accounted for as an equity instrument. The fair value of the Initial Warrant of $723,541 will be recorded as debt issuance costs and amortized on a straight-line basis over the stated term of the Credit Agreement which is five years. Amortization expense of $40,000 was recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The Company anticipates amortization expense to be approximately $160,000 for the years 2012 to 2016. On December 21, 2010, the fair value of the Conditional Warrant is not considered to be material. The fair value of the Conditional Warrant will be recognized as additional expense when and if it becomes exercisable.
In connection with the Financing, the Company entered into two registration rights agreements (the Registration Rights Agreements) with the Lender pursuant to which the Company granted the Lender specified registration rights relating to the Initial Warrant Shares and the Conditional Warrant Shares. The Registration Rights Agreements provide that the Company will file resale registration statements covering all of the Registrable Shares (as defined therein) within 210 days of the execution of the Registration Rights Agreement for the Initial Warrants Shares and within 210 days of the Conditional Warrant Exercise Date (as defined therein) for the Conditional Warrant Shares, subject to certain limitations. Further, the Company has agreed to pay the Lender specified cash payments as partial liquidated damages in the event the Registration Statements are not filed in a timely manner. The Registration Statement for the Initial Warrants Shares was filed on April 20, 2011, within 210 days of the execution of the Registration Rights Agreement for the Initial Warrants Shares.
The complete statement of the parties rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement, the Pledge and Security Agreement, the Warrant and the Registration Rights Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms and conditions of such documents which are filed as exhibits to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 22, 2010.
The Lender is a shareholder of the Company and participated in the private placement described in Note 11 below and previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 8, 2010.
Stock Warrants activity for the quarters ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 consisted of:
Stock warrants granted
Stock warrants expired
Stock warrants exercised
In connection with the private placement of the Companys Common Stock as more fully described in Note 11, the Company granted Common Stock Warrants to purchase 338,182 and 16,364, respectively, to each of its two placement agents for $1.21 per share which expire on December 8, 2015.
In connection with the Credit Agreement with the Lender as more fully described in Note 8, the Company issued a ten-year warrant to purchase 881,331 shares of the Companys Common Stock for $.01 per share.
In connection with the private placement offering to certain investment funds affiliated with Signet Healthcare Partners, G.P. (the Offering) on March 13, 2009, the Company granted its placement agent for the Offering a Common Stock Warrant to purchase 350,000 shares of common stock for $0.41 per share, which expires on March 13, 2012. Until stockholder approval of the Offering was obtained, this Common Stock Warrant was exercisable for no more than 88,550 shares. At the Companys 2009 annual meeting of stockholders held on May 15, 2009, the Companys stockholders approved the Offering and accordingly, all shares under the warrant became issuable. The fair value of the Common Stock Warrant of approximately $102,000 was determined using the Black Scholes model. The factors used in the calculation are as follows: expected volatility of 66.8%, expected term of 3 years and risk-free interest rate of 1.36%. Expected volatility and risk-free interest rates are based upon the expected life of the warrant. The interest rates used are the yield of a 3-year U.S. Treasury Note as of March 13, 2009. Of this amount, $82,000 was deemed to be attributable to the issuance of debt and was capitalized as debt issuance costs. On December 2, 2009, the Common Stock Warrant was amended to include a partial transfer for 87,500 shares of common stock. On December 2, 2009, the warrant to purchase 87,500 was exercised using the Cashless Exercise provision and 51,681 shares of common stock were issued. On February 25, 2011, the warrant to purchase the remaining 262,500 shares of common stock was exercised using the Cashless Exercise provision and 200,646 shares of common stock were issued.

The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
IGI is engaged in the formulation, development, manufacture and packaging of topical semi-solid and liquid products for pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical and cosmetic customers. The Companys strategic plan is to build upon this foundation by expanding into the prescription pharmaceutical arena. This strategy will be based upon three initiatives: increasing the current contract manufacturing services business, developing a generic portfolio of formulations in topical dosage forms, and creating unique opportunities around the Companys licensed Novasome® technology and novel dosage forms.
The Company has structured a new management team to implement this plan. The team brings a wealth of experience in the generic pharmaceutical industry to IGI. IGIs facilities and manufacturing equipment have been designed to produce topical and liquid products and support the Companys target prescription dosage forms.
Contract manufacturing services will continue to be crucial to IGIs success. The customer base for these services is pharmaceutical companies as well as cosmetic, cosmeceutical, and OTC product marketers who require product development/manufacturing support. This is a highly-competitive market with a number of larger, greater-resourced companies offering similar services. IGI looks to create niche opportunities for itself by providing high quality, customer-oriented service.
IGI plans to build a prescription pharmaceutical portfolio in the specialty areas of topical dosage forms. This will be accomplished through in-house formulation and development, and submission of ANDAs to the FDA. The entire approval process can take 3-5 years before a product is approved, of which the FDA approval portion is approximately 18 - 24 months. The Company plans to submit multiple ANDAs each year.
IGI has exclusive rights for the use of Novasome® technology in topical formulations and intends to pursue collaboration opportunities with established pharmaceutical companies seeking to develop topical products with unique properties. In addition, the Company will explore line extension opportunities through innovative packaging or alternate dosage forms of existing pharmaceutical molecules.
In December 2010, we completed a $6,500,000 private placement for the sale of 5,909,087 shares of the Companys common stock resulting in net proceeds of approximately $5,696,000 as more fully described in Note 11 to our Consolidated Financial Statements.
In December 2010, we entered into a credit agreement for a $3,000,000 credit facility as more fully described in Note 8 to our Consolidated Financial Statements. To secure payment of amounts financed, we have granted to the lender a security interest in and against, generally, all of our tangible and intangible assets, except intellectual property.
Results of Operations
Three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to March 31, 2010
The Company had a net loss of $1,034,000, or $0.03 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2011, compared to $1,224,000, or $0.07 per share, in the comparable period for 2010, which resulted from the following:
Revenues (in thousands):
Components of Revenue:
Research and development income
Licensing and royalty income
The increase in product sales for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 was primarily due to increased annual product sales to the Companys major customers. The increase in research and development income during the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 is attributable to new customer relationships and their desire to have the Company develop, manufacture and package their new products or line extensions and the continued strong relationships with our current customer base. Licensing and royalty income decreased due to the decrease in sales of Novasome based products marketed by our licensees. The Company believes the loss of certain royalties is related to the normal life cycle of the products and that certain royalties of the Company may continue to decline.
Costs and expenses (in thousands):
Cost of sales
Selling, general and administrative
Product development and research
Totals costs and expenditures
Cost of sales increased for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as a result of the increase in product sales. Cost of sales as a percent of product sales can vary depending on product mix. Cost of sales as a percentage of product sales was 91% for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 as compared to 127% for the comparable period in 2010. The decrease in the cost of sales percentage was primarily due to the increased product sales for the three months ended March 31, 2011, which allowed the Company to absorb more of its overhead costs.
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 increased as compared to the same period in 2010 as a result of the severance arrangement of $132,000 for our former Chief Financial Officer as per his separation agreement, an increase of $56,000 in employees compensation payable in stock, an increase of $14,000 in professional fees and an increase of $6,000 in board of directors fees, offset by a decrease of $163,000 in salaries and related costs, a decrease of $9,000 in expense from the issuance of stock options and a decrease of $9,000 in commissions.
As the Company continued to create its pharmaceutical foundation, transitioning from a contract manufacturer to a generic topical pharmaceutical company, product development and research expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2011 increased as compared to the same period for 2010 as follows. Salaries and related costs increased $123,000 due to establishing a fully staffed Quality Analytical Department, supplies and outside testing increased by $70,000, offset by a decrease of $20,000 in consulting and a decrease of $8,000 in the expense from the issuance of stock options.
Interest (Expense) Income (in thousands):
Interest income increased for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 due to higher cash balances in 2011. Interest expense increased for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 due to amortization of debt issuance costs of $40,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as more fully described in Note 8 above and the fact that $500,000 of the Notes Payable Related Party (See Note 8) was drawn down during the three months ended March 31, 2011 and there was no debt outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2010.
Net loss (in thousands, except per share numbers):
Net loss per share
The decrease in net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 is due to the increase in Revenues notes above, offset by the increases in Costs and expenses also noted above.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company's operating activities used $933,000 of cash during the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $1,075,000 used in the comparable period of 2010. The use of cash for both the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 was substantially a result of the net loss for each period.
The Companys investing activities used $49,000 of cash in the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $104,000 of cash used in investing activities in the first three months of 2010. The funds used for the period ended March 31, 2011 were for additional equipment and improvements for the packaging and filing lines and additional equipment and related services for the analytical area, and the funds used for the period ended March 31, 2010 were for additional equipment and related services for the analytical area.
The Company's financing activities provided $506,000 of cash in the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $1,517,000 provided in the three months ended March 31, 2010. The cash provided for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 was mainly the proceeds from the draw down of the Note Payable Related Party as more fully described in Note 8 to the Companys Consolidated Financial Statements. The cash provided for the three month period ended March 31, 2010 was the proceeds of the Series C Convertible Preferred Stock financing.
The Companys principal sources of liquidity are cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4,640,000 at March 31, 2011 and future cash from operations. The Company had working capital of $5,930,000 at March 31, 2011.
The Company may require additional funding and this funding will depend, in part, on the timing and structure of potential business arrangements. If necessary, the Company may continue to seek to raise additional capital through the sale of its equity or through a strategic alliance with a third party. There may also be additional acquisition and growth opportunities that may require external financing. There can be no assurance that such financing will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all. We believe that our existing capital resources including the recently completed line of credit and private placement detailed in Notes 8 and 11 will be sufficient to support our current business plan beyond May 2012.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
The Company does not have any off balance sheet arrangements as of the date of this report.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
IGIs condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, which require management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
Please refer to the Companys Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 for a complete list of all Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates. See also Note 3 to the Companys Consolidated Financial Statements.
ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Acting Principal Financial and Accounting Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of March 31, 2011. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Acting Principal Financial and Accounting Officer concluded that, as of March 31, 2011, the Companys disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting during our first quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
ITEM 1. Legal Proceedings
We are involved from time to time in claims which arise in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of management, we have made adequate provision for potential liabilities, if any, arising from any such matters. However, litigation is inherently unpredictable, and the costs and other effects of pending or future litigation, governmental investigations, legal and administrative cases and proceedings (whether civil or criminal), settlements, judgments and investigations, claims and changes in any such matters, and developments or assertions by or against us relating to intellectual property rights and intellectual property licenses, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and operating results.
ITEM 1A. Risk Factors.
Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 includes a detailed discussion of risks and uncertainties which could adversely affect our future results. Except as set forth below, the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 have not materially changed.
Risks Related to Our Business
We rely on a limited number of customers for a large portion of our revenues.
We depend on a limited number of customers for a large portion of our revenue. Two of our customers accounted for 56% of our revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and four of our customers accounted for 70% of our revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2010. The loss of one or more of these customers could have a significant impact on our revenues and harm our business and results of operations.
We have a history of losses and cannot assure you that we will become profitable, and as a result, we may have to cease operations and liquidate our business.
Our expenses have exceeded our revenue in each of the last eight years, and no net income has been available to common stockholders during each of these years. As of March 31, 2011, our stockholders equity was $9.4 million and we had an accumulated deficit of $38 million. Our future profitability depends on revenue exceeding expenses, but we cannot assure you that this will occur. If we do not become profitable or continue to raise external financing, we could be forced to curtail operations and sell or liquidate our business, and you could lose some or all of your investment.
Risks Related to Our Securities
Shares of our common stock are relatively illiquid which may affect the trading price of our common stock.
For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the average daily trading volume of our Common Stock on the NYSE Amex was approximately 6,200 shares. As a result of our relatively small public float, our Common Stock may be less liquid than the stock of companies with broader public ownership. Among other things, trading of a relatively small volume of our Common Stock may have a greater impact on the trading price for our shares than would be the case if our public float were larger.
If we fail to meet the continued listing standards of the NYSE Amex our common stock could be delisted and our stock price could suffer.
On May 6, 2008, we were notified by NYSE Amex that we were below certain of the NYSE Amex continued listing standards. Specifically, we are required to reflect income from continuing operations and/or net income in one of our five most recent fiscal years and a minimum of $6 million in stockholders equity to remain listed on the exchange. We had net income from continuing operations in our 2002 fiscal year, but had net losses and losses from continuing operations in each of our 2003 through 2010 fiscal years. Our stockholders equity at March 31, 2011 was $9.4 million.
On June 8, 2008, we submitted a plan to NYSE Amex for compliance with the continued listing standards. On July 15, 2008, NYSE Amex notified us of its acceptance and granted us an extension until May 6, 2009 to regain compliance subject to periodic review by NYSE Amex during the extension period.
On March 13, 2009, we completed a $6,000,000 private placement offering with certain investment funds affiliated with Signet Healthcare Partners, G.P. In recognition of our efforts in connection with the offering, NYSE Amex granted us an extension from May 6, 2009 until May 31, 2009 to regain compliance with these continued listing standards.
On June 19, 2009, we were notified by NYSE Amex that we had resolved its continued listing deficiencies and would retain our status as a listed issuer on NYSE Amex. However, as of March 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009, our stockholders equity had again fallen below the $6 million threshold.
On May 25, 2010, we were notified by NYSE Amex that we were below certain of the NYSE Amex continued listing standards. Specifically, we are required to reflect a minimum of $6 million in stockholders equity to remain listed on the exchange. On June 24, 2010, we submitted a plan to NYSE Amex for compliance with the continued listing standards, which included our plan to increase out stockholders equity through additional offerings.
On August 6, 2010, NYSE Amex notified us that it accepted our plan of compliance and granted us an extension until February 25, 2011 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. We were subject to periodic review by NYSE Amex Staff during the extension period. On December 10, 2010, NYSE Amex notified us that we had resolved our continued listing deficiencies referenced in its May 2010 letter, and that we were in compliance with the NYSE Amex alternative listing standards, which require at least a $50 million market capitalization.
If we fail to meet the continued listing standards, our common stock could be delisted and our stock price could suffer. A delisting of our common stock could negatively impact us by further reducing the liquidity and market price of our common stock and the number of investors willing to hold or acquire our common stock, which could negatively impact our ability to raise equity financing.
