Note 1 – Organization and Business

 

ProPhase Labs, Inc. (“we”, “us” or the “Company”) was initially organized in Nevada in July 1989. Effective June 18, 2015, we changed our state of incorporation from the State of Nevada to the State of Delaware. We are a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of a diversified range of health care and cold remedy products that are offered to the general public. We are also engaged in the research and development of potential over-the-counter (“OTC”) drug and natural base health products including supplements, personal care and cosmeceutical products.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

Prior to March 29, 2017, our flagship OTC drug brand was Cold-EEZE ® and our principal product was Cold-EEZE ® cold remedy zinc gluconate lozenges, proven in clinical studies to reduce the duration and severity of symptoms of the common cold. In addition to Cold-EEZE ® cold remedy lozenges, we also marketed and distributed non-lozenge forms of our proprietary zinc gluconate formulation, (i) Cold-EEZE ® cold remedy QuickMelts ® , (ii) Cold-EEZE ® Gummies and (iii) Cold-EEZE ® cold remedy Oral Spray. Each of the Cold-EEZE ® QuickMelts ® and Gummies products are based on a proprietary zinc gluconate formulation in combination with certain (i) immune system support, (ii) energy, (iii) sleep and relaxation, and/or (iv) cold and flu symptom relieving active ingredients.

 

On January 6, 2017, we signed an asset purchase agreement (as amended, the “Asset Purchase Agreement”), by and among the Company, Meda Consumer Healthcare Inc. (“MCH”) and Mylan Inc. (together with MCH, “Mylan”), for the sale of assets by us to Mylan (see Note 3). The sale of assets (i) was subject to stockholder approval and other customary closing conditions and (ii) consisted principally of the sale of our intellectual property rights and other assets relating to our Cold-EEZE ® brand and product line (collectively, referred to herein as the “Cold-EEZE ® Business”) to Mylan, including all current and pipeline over-the-counter allergy, cold, flu, multi-symptom relief and immune support treatments for adults and children to the extent each is, or is intended to be, branded “Cold-EEZE ® ”, and all private label versions thereof, including all formulations and derivatives thereof as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

 

A special meeting of our stockholders was held on March 29, 2017 (the “Special Meeting”). At the Special Meeting, our stockholders approved the sale of assets and the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement. Effective March 29, 2017, we completed the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business to Mylan. As a consequence of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we have classified as discontinued operations (i) the gain from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, (ii) all income and expenses attributable to the Cold-EEZE ® Business and (iii) the income tax expense attributed to the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business (see Notes 3 and 6). Excluded from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business were our accounts receivable and inventory, and we also retained all liabilities associated with our Cold-EEZE ® Business operations arising prior to March 29, 2017.

 

Continuing Operations

 

We continue to own and operate our manufacturing facility and manufacturing business in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and our headquarters in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. As part of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, we entered into a manufacturing agreement (see Note 7) with Mylan and our wholly-owned subsidiary, Pharmaloz Manufacturing, Inc. (“PMI”), to supply various Cold-EEZE ® lozenge products to Mylan. In addition to the production services we provide to Mylan under the manufacturing agreement, we produce OTC drug and dietary supplement lozenges and other products for other third party customers in addition to performing operational tasks such as warehousing, customer order processing and shipping.

 

We are also pursuing a series of new product development and pre-commercialization initiatives in the OTC dietary supplement category. Initial OTC dietary supplement product development activities were completed in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015 under the brand name of TK Supplements ® . The TK Supplements ® product line comprises three men’s health products: (i) Legendz XL ® for sexual health, (ii) Triple Edge XL ® , a daily energy booster plus testosterone support, and (iii) Super ProstaFlow Plus TM for prostate and urinary health. We recently completed a broad series of clinical studies which support important product claims which have now been incorporated in our product packaging and marketing communications. In addition to developing direct-to-consumer (“Direct Response”) marketing strategies of Legendz XL ® , we received initial product acceptance and shipped into a national chain drug retailer during the second quarter of Fiscal 2017. In addition, we have received initial product acceptance from several regional retailers to begin shipments in the third and fourth quarters of Fiscal 2017.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, our revenues from continuing operations have come principally from our OTC health care products.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial statements and within the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applicable to interim financial statements and therefore do not include all disclosures that might normally be required for financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management without audit and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, appearing in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position, consolidated results of operations and consolidated cash flows, for the periods indicated, have been made. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of operating results that may be achieved over the course of the full year. Historical financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation, principally reflecting the sale of Cold-EEZE ® Business as discontinued operations.

 

Discontinued Operations Carve Out and ProPhase Allocations

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, results from operations for our Cold-EEZE ® Business are classified as discontinued operations The carve out of the discontinued operations (i) were prepared in accordance with the SEC’s carve out rules under Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) Topic 1B1 and (ii) are derived from identifying and carving out the specific assets, liabilities, net sales, cost of sales, operating expenses and interest expense associated with the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s operations. General administrative and overhead expenses, including personnel expenses and bonuses, and research and development overhead expenses incurred by us (for which the discontinued operation benefits from such resources) are allocated to discontinued operations based upon the percentage of the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s net sales to our consolidated net sales. For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we allocated (i) zero and $319,000, respectively, of administrative expenses and (ii) zero and $48,000, respectively, of research and development expenses, to discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed statements of operations. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we allocated (i) $348,000 and $656,000, respectively, of administrative expenses and (ii) $52,000 and $95,000, respectively, of research and development expenses, to discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed statements of operations (see Note 3).

 

Seasonality of the Business

 

Our net sales are derived principally from our OTC heath care and cold remedy products sold in the United States of America. Our sales are influenced by and subject to fluctuations in the timing of purchase and the ultimate level of demand for our products which are a function of the timing, length and severity of each cold season. Generally, a cold season is defined as the period of September to March when the incidence of the common cold rises as a consequence of the change in weather and other factors. We generally experience in the first, third and fourth quarter higher levels of net sales. Revenues are generally at their lowest levels in the second quarter when customer demand generally declines.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, our net sales were principally related to domestic markets.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – continued

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements and the accompanying notes thereto, in conformity with GAAP, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the respective reporting periods. Examples include the provision for bad debt, sales returns and allowances, inventory obsolescence, useful lives of property and equipment, impairment of property and equipment, income tax valuations and assumptions related to accrued advertising. When providing for the appropriate sales returns, allowances, cash discounts and cooperative incentive promotion costs (“Sales Allowances”), we apply a uniform and consistent method for making certain assumptions for estimating these provisions. These estimates and assumptions are based on historical experience, current trends and other factors that management believes to be relevant at the time the financial statements are prepared. Management reviews the accounting policies, assumptions, estimates and judgments on a quarterly basis. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

We consider all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents include cash on hand and monies invested in money market funds. The carrying amount approximates the fair market value due to the short-term maturity of these investments.

 

Inventory Valuation

 

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost, determined on a first-in, first-out basis (FIFO), or market. Inventory items are analyzed to determine cost and the market value and appropriate valuation adjustments are established. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the financial statements include adjustments to reduce inventory for excess or obsolete inventory of $1.7 million and $1.6 million, respectively. The components of inventory are as follows (in thousands):

 

    June 30, 2017     December 31, 2016  
Raw materials   $ 1,590     $ 1,404  
Work in process     342       466  
Finished goods     34       866  
    $ 1,966     $ 2,736  

 

Property, Plant and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost. We use the straight-line method in computing depreciation for financial reporting purposes. Depreciation expense is computed in accordance with the following ranges of estimated asset lives: building and improvements – ten to thirty-nine years; machinery and equipment – three to seven years; computer software – three years; and furniture and fixtures – five years.

 

Concentration of Risks

 

Future revenues, costs, margins and profits will continue to be influenced by our ability to maintain our manufacturing availability and capacity together with our marketing and distribution capabilities and the regulatory requirements associated with the development of OTC and other personal care products in order to compete on a national level and/or international level.

 

Our business is subject to federal and state laws and regulations adopted for the health and safety of users of our products. Our OTC health care products are subject to regulations by various federal, state and local agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and, as applicable, the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.

Financial instruments that potentially subject us to significant concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash investments and trade accounts receivable.

 

We maintain cash and cash equivalents with certain major financial institutions. As of June 30, 2017, our cash balance was $37.3 million and our bank balance was $38.5 million. Of the total bank balance, $342,000 was covered by federal depository insurance and $38.1 million was uninsured at June 30, 2017.

 

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – continued

 

Trade accounts receivable potentially subject us to credit concentrations from time-to-time as a consequence of the timing, payment pattern and ultimate purchase volumes or shipping schedules with our customers. We extend credit to our customers based upon an evaluation of the customer’s financial condition and credit history and generally we do not require collateral. Our broad range of customers includes many large national chain, regional, specialty and local retail stores. These credit concentrations may impact our overall exposure to credit risk, either positively or negatively, in that our customers may be similarly affected by changes in economic, regulatory or other conditions that may impact the timing and collectability of amounts due to us. As a consequence of an evaluation of our customer’s financial condition, payment patterns, balance due to us and other factors, we did not offset our account receivable with an allowance for bad debt at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

 

Long-lived Assets

 

We review our carrying value of our long-lived assets with definite lives whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. When indicators of impairment exist, we determine whether the estimated undiscounted sum of the future cash flows of such assets is less than their carrying amounts. If less, an impairment loss is recognized in the amount, if any, by which the carrying amount of such assets exceeds their respective fair values. The determination of fair value is based on quoted market prices in active markets, if available, or independent appraisals; sales price negotiations; or projected future cash flows discounted at a rate determined by management to be commensurate with our business risk. The estimation of fair value utilizing discounted forecasted cash flows includes significant judgments regarding assumptions of revenue, operating and marketing costs; selling and administrative expenses; interest rates; property and equipment additions and retirements; industry competition; and general economic and business conditions, among other factors.

 

Fair value is based on the prices that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In order to increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements, a three-tier fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. These tiers include: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, assets held for sale, accounts payable, accrued expenses and notes payable are reflected in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at carrying value which approximates fair value.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Sales are recognized at the time ownership is transferred to the customer. Revenue is reduced for trade promotions, estimated sales returns, cash discounts and other allowances in the same period as the related sales are recorded. We make estimates of potential future product returns and other allowances related to current period revenue. We analyze historical returns, current trends, and changes in customer and consumer demand when evaluating the adequacy of the sales returns and other allowances.

 

Our return policy accommodates returns for (i) discontinued products, (ii) store closings and (iii) products that have reached or exceeded their designated expiration date. We do not impose a period of time within which product may be returned. All requests for product returns must be submitted to us for pre-approval. The main components of our returns policy are: (i) we will accept returns that are due to damaged product that is un-saleable and such return request activity falls within an acceptable range, (ii) we will accept returns for products that have reached or exceeded designated expiration dates and (iii) we will accept returns in the event that we discontinue a product provided that the customer will have the right to return only such items that it purchased directly from us. We will not accept return requests pertaining to customer inventory “Overstocking” or “Resets”. We will only accept return requests for product in its intended package configuration. We reserve the right to terminate shipment of product to customers who have made unauthorized deductions contrary to our return policy or pursue other methods of reimbursement. We compensate the customer for authorized returns by means of a credit applied to amounts owed or to be owed and in the case of discontinued product only, also by way of an exchange. We do not have any significant product exchange history.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – continued

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we are responsible for and continue to accept product returns of the Cold-EEZE ® Business for product shipped prior to March 30, 2017. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we allocated and, in June 2017, issued a credit to Mylan in an aggregate of $400,000 for future sales returns and allowances arising from certain product returns that were sold by us prior to March 30, 2017.

 

As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we included a provision for sales allowances of zero and $108,000, respectively. Additionally, accrued advertising and other allowances as of June 30, 2017 included (i) $934,000 for estimated future sales returns and (ii) $598,000 for cooperative incentive promotion costs. As of December 31, 2016, accrued advertising and other allowances included (i) $1.2 million for estimated future sales returns and (ii) $1.5 million for cooperative incentive promotion costs.

 

Advertising and Incentive Promotions

 

Advertising and incentive promotion costs are expensed within the period in which they are utilized. Advertising and incentive promotion expense is comprised of (i) media advertising, presented as part of sales and marketing expense, (ii) cooperative incentive promotions and coupon program expenses, which are accounted for as part of net sales, and (iii) free product, which is accounted for as part of cost of sales. Advertising and incentive promotion expenses incurred (i) from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 were $21,000 and $139,000, respectively, and (ii) attributed to and classified as discontinued operations were $205,000 and $471,000, respectively. Advertising and incentive promotion expenses incurred (i) from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 were $53,000 and $339,000 , respectively, and (ii) attributed to and classified as discontinued operations were $2.8 million and $3.3 million, respectively. Included in prepaid expenses and other current assets was $17,000 and $263,000 at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, relating to prepaid advertising and promotion expenses.

 

Shipping and Handling

 

Product sales may carry shipping and handling charges to the purchaser, included as part of the invoiced price, which is classified as revenue. In all cases, costs related to this revenue are recorded in cost of sales.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

We recognize all share-based payments to employees and directors, including grants of stock options, as compensation expense in the financial statements based on their fair values. Fair values of stock options are determined through the use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The compensation cost is recognized as an expense over the requisite service period of the award, which usually coincides with the vesting period.

 

Stock and stock options for the purchase of our common stock, $0.0005 par value (“Common Stock”), have been granted to both employees and non-employees pursuant to the terms of certain agreements and stock option plans (see Note 5). Stock options are exercisable during a period determined by us, but in no event later than ten years from the date granted. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we charged to operations $18,000 and $1,000, respectively, for share-based compensation expense for the aggregate fair value of stock grants issued and vested stock options earned.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development costs are charged to operations in the period incurred. Research and development costs incurred for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 (i) from continuing operations were $224,000 and $121,000, respectively, and (ii) attributed to and classified as discontinued operations of zero and $48,000, respectively. Research and development costs incurred for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 (i) from continuing operations were $258,000 and $160,000, respectively, and (ii) attributed to and classified as discontinued operations of $52,000 and $95,000, respectively. Research and development costs are principally related to personnel expenses and new product development initiatives and costs associated with our OTC health care products.

Income Taxes

 

We utilize the asset and liability approach which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our financial statements or tax returns. In estimating future tax consequences, we generally consider all expected future events other than enactments of changes in the tax law or rates. Until we have sufficient taxable income to offset the temporary timing differences attributable to operations and the tax deductions attributable to option, warrant and stock activities are assured, a full valuation allowance equaling the total deferred tax asset is being provided (see Notes 3 and 6).

 

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – continued

 

We utilize a two-step approach to recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions. The first step is to evaluate the tax position for recognition by determining if the weight of available evidence indicates that it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained on audit, including resolution of related appeals or litigation processes, if any. The second step is to measure the tax benefit as the largest amount which is more than fifty percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Any interest or penalties related to income taxes will be recorded as interest or administrative expense, respectively.

 

As a result of our continuing tax losses, we have recorded a full valuation allowance against a net deferred tax asset. Additionally, we have not recorded a liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, on revenue recognition. The new standard provides for a single five-step model to be applied to all revenue contracts with customers as well as requires additional financial statement disclosures that will enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows relating to customer contracts. Companies have an option to use either a retrospective approach or cumulative effect adjustment approach to implement the standard. This ASU, as amended, is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017. We are currently assessing the impact of this update, but preliminarily believe that its adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02 “Leases”. The new standard will require most leases to be recognized on the balance sheet which will increase reported assets and liabilities. Lessor accounting remains substantially similar to current guidance. The new standard is effective for annual and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, which for us is the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and mandates a modified retrospective transition method. We do not intend to early adopt and are currently assessing the impact of this update, but preliminarily believe that its adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments—Credit Losses.” The standard modifies the impairment model for most financial assets, including trade accounts receivables and loans, and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured at amortized cost. Under this model, entities will be required to estimate the lifetime expected credit loss on such instruments and record an allowance to offset the amortized cost basis of the financial asset, resulting in a net presentation of the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. The effective date of the standard is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of adoption of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments” . The new standard attempts to reduce diversity in practice in how cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU No. 2016-15 provides guidance on eight specific cash flow issues. The new guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted including adoption in an interim period. We do not intend to early adopt and we are currently assessing the impact of adoption of this update will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, “Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other than Inventory”. The new standard requires entities should recognize the income tax consequences of an asset other than inventory when the asset transfer occurs. The new guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and requires a modified retrospective adoption through a cumulative effect adjustment directly to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. We are currently evaluating the impact of adoption of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

Note 3 – Discontinued Operations, Sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business

 

At the Special Meeting held on March 29, 2017, our stockholders approved the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement. Effective March 29, 2017, we completed the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business to Mylan.

 

As a consequence of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we have classified as discontinued operations (i) the gain from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, (ii) all gains and losses attributable to the Cold-EEZE ® Business operations and (iii) the income tax expense attributed to the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business (see Note 6). Excluded from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business were our accounts receivable and inventory, and we also retained all liabilities associated with our Cold-EEZE ® Business operations arising prior to March 29, 2017.

 

Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, we also agreed to a one-time sale to Mylan of certain non-lozenge-based Cold-EEZE ® inventory. At June 30, 2017, we classified as assets held for sale approximately $294,000 of such inventory, which approximates our cost. At December 31, 2016, the balance sheet impact of discontinued operations was deemed not material, as such, no reclassifications for discontinued operations have been presented.

 

Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, we entered into a 90 day transition service arrangement with Mylan, for which we earned $150,000 in transition service fees through June 30, 2017. Pursuant to this arrangement, we (i) received, processed, fulfilled, and shipped customer orders, and billed such customers for these shipments on behalf of Mylan from March 30, 2017 to June 30, 2017, (ii) processed certain sales allowances, returns and other customer promotional deductions, and (iii) paid certain Cold-EEZE ® Business expenses which are to be reimbursed by Mylan. At June 30, 2017, we have a balance due to Mylan of $717,000 which is comprised of (i) net billings to Mylan’s customers for product shipments, less sales and other allowances, of $1.8 million (ii) return allocation of $400,000 for future sales returns and allowances (see Note 2), offset by (ii1) $1.4 million for product shipments and transition service fee due from Mylan and (iv) $106,000 for the reimbursement of certain Cold-EEZE ® Business expenses we paid on behalf of Mylan. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, the $150,000 transition service fees earned are recorded as a component of other income (expense).

Note 4 – Secured Promissory Notes and Other Obligations

 

Secured Promissory Notes

 

On December 11, 2015, we executed two Subscription Agreements (the “Subscription Agreements”) with the investors named therein (the “Investors”) providing for the purchase of 12% Secured Promissory Notes – Series A (“Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of up to $3.0 million and warrants to purchase shares of our Common Stock (the “Warrants”).

 

Notes in the amount of $1.5 million and 51,000 Warrants, at an exercise price of $1.35 per share, which was equal to the closing price of our Common Stock on the date of investment, were issued by the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, PMI and Quigley Pharma, Inc. (collectively, the “Obligors”), and funded on December 11, 2015. We incurred loan origination costs of $22,000 which were recorded as a reduction of the Notes and the origination costs are charged to other income (expense) over the term of the loan. The Warrants had an exercise term equal to three years and were exercisable commencing on the date of issuance. The fair value of the Warrants at the date of grant was $14,000 which is recorded as a reduction of the Notes and is charged to other income (expense) over the term of the loan.

The Notes bore interest at the rate of 12% per annum, payable semi-annually and the principal is due and payable on June 15, 2017. The Notes could be pre-paid at any time prior to maturity without penalty. The effective interest, inclusive of the Warrant and loan origination costs, was 14.3% per annum. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we charged to other income (expense) $54,000 and $105,000, respectively, in connection with the Notes.

 

On March 29, 2017, in connection with the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, we paid in full the remaining principal and accrued interest, in the total amount of $1,553,000, due under the Notes. Of the $1,553,000 paid to the Investors, $69,000 was netted against the aggregate exercise price of the Warrants, which were simultaneously being exercised by the Investors.

 

In connection with the issuance of the Notes, the Company entered into a security agreement with John E. Ligums, Jr., as collateral agent for the Investors (the “Security Agreement”) to secure the timely payment and performance in full of the Company’s obligations under the Notes. Under the Security Agreement, we granted to the collateral agent, for the benefit of the Investors a lien upon and security interest in the property and assets listed as collateral in the Security Agreement, including without limitation, all of our personal property, inventory, equipment, general intangibles, cash and cash equivalents, and proceeds. In connection with the payoff of the Notes, the Security Agreement was terminated.

 

Note 5 – Transactions Affecting Stockholders’ Equity

 

Our authorized capital stock consists of 50 million shares of Common Stock and 1 million shares of preferred stock, $.0005 par value (“Preferred Stock”).

 

Preferred Stock

 

On June 16, 2015, our stockholders approved the change to our state of incorporation from the State of Nevada to the State of Delaware pursuant to a plan of conversion (the “Conversion Plan”) and the filing of a certificate of incorporation in the State of Delaware. The Preferred Stock authorized under our certificate of incorporation may be issued from time to time in one or more series. As of June 30, 2017, no shares of Preferred Stock have been issued. Our board of directors has the full authority permitted by law to establish, without further stockholder approval, one or more series of Preferred Stock and the number of shares constituting each such series and to fix by resolution, voting powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional and other special rights of each series of Preferred Stock, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, if any. Subject to the limitation on the total number of shares of Preferred Stock that we have authority to issue under our certificate of incorporation, the board of directors is also authorized to increase or decrease the number of shares of any series, subsequent to the issue of that series, but not below the number of shares of such series then-outstanding. In case the number of shares of any series is so decreased, the shares constituting such decrease will resume the status that they had prior to the adoption of the resolution originally fixing the number of shares of such series. We may amend from time to time our certificate of incorporation and bylaws to increase the number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock or Common Stock or to make other changes or additions to our capital structure or the terms of our capital stock.

 

Stockholder Rights Plan

 

On September 8, 1998, our Board of Directors declared a dividend distribution of Common Stock Purchase Rights (each individually, a “Right” and collectively, the “Rights”) payable to our stockholders of record on September 25, 1998, thereby creating a Stockholder Rights Plan (the “Rights Agreement”). The Plan was subsequently amended effective each of (i) May 23, 2008, (ii) August 18, 2009, (iii) June 18, 2014 and (iv) January 6, 2017. The Rights Agreement, as amended and restated, provides that each Right entitles the stockholder of record to purchase from the Company that number of shares of Common Stock having a combined market value equal to two times the Rights exercise price of $45. The Rights are not exercisable until the distribution date, which will be the earlier of a public announcement that a person or group of affiliated or associated persons has acquired 15% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, or the announcement of an intention by a similarly constituted party to make a tender or exchange offer resulting in the ownership of 15% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (such person, the “acquirer”). The Rights Agreement allows for an exemption for Ted Karkus, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, to acquire up to 20% of our Common Stock without our Board of Directors declaring a dividend distribution.

The dividend has the effect of diluting the acquirer by giving our other stockholders a 50% discount on our Common Stock’s current market value for exercising the Rights. In the event of a cashless exercise of the Right and the acquirer has acquired less than 50% beneficial ownership of the Company, a stockholder may exchange one Right for one share of Common Stock of the Company. The Rights Agreement, as amended, includes a provision pursuant to which our Board of Directors may exempt from the provisions of the Rights Agreement an offer for all outstanding shares of our Common Stock that the directors determine to be fair and not inadequate and to otherwise be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders, after receiving advice from one or more investment banking firms. The expiration date of the Rights Agreement, as amended, is June 18, 2024.

 

Equity Line of Credit

 

On July 30, 2015, we entered into a new equity line of credit agreement (such arrangement, the “2015 Equity Line”) with Dutchess Opportunity Fund II, LP (“Dutchess”). Pursuant to the 2015 Equity Line, Dutchess committed to purchase, subject to certain restrictions and conditions, up to 3,200,000 shares of our Common Stock, over a period of 36 months from the effectiveness of the registration statement registering the resale of shares purchased by Dutchess pursuant to the Investment Agreement.

 

We may, at our discretion, draw on the 2015 Equity Line from time to time, as and when we determine appropriate in accordance with the terms and conditions of the 2015 Equity Line. The maximum number of shares that we are entitled to put to Dutchess in any one draw down notice shall not exceed 500,000 shares with a purchase price calculated in accordance with the terms of the 2015 Equity Line. We may deliver a notice for a subsequent put from time to time, following the one day pricing period for the prior put.

 

Note 5 – Transactions Affecting Stockholders’ Equity – continued

 

The purchase price shall be set at ninety-five percent (95%) of the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Common Stock during the one trading day immediately following our put notice. We have the right to withdraw all or any portion of any put, except that portion of the put that has already been sold to a third party, including any portion of a put that is below the minimum acceptable price set forth on the put notice, before the closing. In the event Dutchess receives more than a five percent (5%) return on the net sales for a specific put, Dutchess must remit such excess proceeds to us; however, in the event Dutchess receives less than a five percent (5%) return on the net sales for a specific put, Dutchess will have the right to deduct from the proceeds of the put amount on the applicable closing date so Dutchess’s return will equal five percent (5%).

 

There are put restrictions applied on days between the draw down notice date and the closing date with respect to that particular put. During such time, we are entitled to deliver another draw down notice. In addition, Dutchess will not be obligated to purchase shares if Dutchess’ total number of shares beneficially held at that time would exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock as determined in accordance with Rule 13d-1(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In addition, we are not permitted to draw on the facility unless there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the shares.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the 2015 Equity Line, we are obligated to file one or more registration statements with the SEC to register the resale by Dutchess of the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable under the 2015 Equity Line. In addition, we are obligated to use all commercially reasonable efforts to have the registration statement declared effective by the SEC within 90 days after the registration statement is filed. On August 4, 2015, we filed a registration statement for the underlying shares of the 2015 Equity Line with the SEC and the registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on August 21, 2015.

 

At June 30, 2017, we have 2,450,000 shares of our Common Stock available for sale, at our discretion, under the terms of our 2015 Equity Line and covered pursuant to an effective registration statement.

The 2010 Equity Compensation Plan

 

On May 5, 2010, our stockholders approved the 2010 Equity Compensation Plan which was subsequently amended, restated and approved by our stockholders on April 24, 2011, and further amended and approved by stockholders on May 6, 2013, and further amended and approved by stockholders on May 24, 2016 (the “2010 Plan”). The 2010 Plan provides that the total number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued under the 2010 Plan is equal to 3.2 million shares, including 900,000 shares that are authorized for issuance but unissued under a 1997 incentive stock option plan and 700,000 shares added to the 2010 Plan effective May 24, 2016.

 

For the six month ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we granted, 600,000 options, exercisable at $2.00 per share and subject to vesting over a four year term, and zero options, respectively, to employees to acquire our Common Stock pursuant to the terms of 2010 Plan. The assumptions used in determining the fair value of the 600,000 stock options granted in Fiscal 2017 were (i) expected option life of 4.5 years, (ii) weighted average risk rate of 1.81%, (iii) dividend yield of 0% and (iv) expected volatility of 44.51%.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, 90,000 stock options were exercised pursuant to the 2010 Plan and we derived net proceeds of $102,000. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, there were no stock options exercised. At June 30, 2017, there were 2,209,000 options outstanding under the 2010 Plan and 133,659 options available to be issued pursuant to the terms of the 2010 Plan.

 

The 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan

 

On May 5, 2010, our stockholders approved the 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan, which was subsequently amended and approved by stockholders on May 6, 2013. A primary purpose of the 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan is to provide us with the ability to pay all or a portion of the fees of directors in restricted stock instead of cash. The 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan provides that the total number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued under the 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan is equal to 425,000. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, no shares were granted to our directors. At June 30, 2017, there were 147,808 shares of Common Stock that may be issued pursuant to the terms of the 2010 Directors’ Equity Compensation Plan.

Treasury Stock Purchase Agreement

 

On June 12, 2017 we entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with each of Mark S. Leventhal, a former director of the Company, and certain other persons and entities associated and/or affiliated with Mr. Leventhal (the “Leventhal Holders”), pursuant to which we purchased all 1,061,980 shares of our Common Stock then held by the Leventhal Holders, representing an approximate 6.2% aggregate ownership interest (based on 17,221,776 shares of common stock outstanding as of June 12, 2017). Upon consummation of the transactions, the Leventhal Holders ceased to hold any direct or indirect ownership interest in the Company.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreements, the total consideration paid by us to the Leventhal Holders for their shares was $1,858,465, which amount was equal to the product of (i) $1.75 multiplied by (ii) the number of shares purchased.

 

Note 6 – Income Taxes

 

At December 31, 2016, there were $47.1 million in net operating loss carryforwards, subject to applicable limitations, available to us for federal purposes which will expire beginning for the year ended December 31, 2020 through 2036. Additionally, there were $22.1 million in net operating loss carryforwards, subject to limitations, available to us for state purposes which will expire beginning for the year ended December 31, 2020 through 2036.

 

Based upon preliminary estimates, we believe that a significant portion of our income tax liability of $19.5 million arising from our taxable gain for federal and state income tax purposes from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business will be offset to the extent of our current year losses from operations, the write-off for tax purposes of the tax-basis of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and the available net operating loss carryforwards at the federal and state levels. However, for state income tax purposes, based upon the available state net operating loss carryforwards and corresponding limitations, we estimate a net income tax expense arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business of $1.3 million.

Utilization of net operating loss carryforwards may be subject to limitations as set forth in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (“Section 382”). Based on our preliminary Section 382 analysis, we do not believe that our current net operating loss carryforwards are subject to these limitations as of June 30, 2017. However, until we complete a final Section 382 analysis upon filing of our 2017 income tax return, there can be no assurances that our preliminary analysis is accurate or complete. Should we identify any limitations upon the completion of our final Section 382 analysis, the impact could be material to our consolidated financial statements and that we could incur additional income tax expense arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, we charged to discontinued operations $19.5 million for estimated federal and state income taxes arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and we have realized an income tax benefit from continuing operations of $18.1 million as a consequence of the utilization of the federal and state net operating losses.

 

Subsequent to the income tax effects arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, we will continue to have net operating loss carry-forwards for federal income tax purposes. Until sufficient taxable income to offset the temporary timing differences attributable to operations, and the tax deductions attributable to option, warrant and stock activities are assured, a valuation allowance equaling the total deferred tax asset is being provided. As a consequence of the accumulated losses of the Company, we believe that this allowance is required due to the uncertainty of realizing these tax benefits in the future.

Note 7– Commitments and Contingencies

 

Escrow Receivable

 

We have indemnification obligations to Mylan under the Asset Purchase Agreement that may require us to make future payments to Mylan and other related persons for any damages incurred by Mylan or such related persons as a result of any breaches of our representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in the Asset Purchase Agreement, or arising from the Retained Liabilities (as such term is defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) or certain third party claims specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement. Generally, our representations and warranties survive for a period of 24 months from the closing date, other than certain fundamental representations which survive until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations. There is a limited indemnification cap with respect to a majority of the Company’s indemnification obligations under the Asset Purchase Agreement with the exception of claims for actual fraud, the breach of any fundamental representations and certain other items, which have a larger indemnification cap (e.g., the purchase price).

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we, Mylan, and an escrow agent entered into an Escrow Agreement at closing, pursuant to which Mylan deposited $5 million of the aggregate purchase price for the Cold-EEZE ® Business into an escrow account established with the Escrow Agent in order to satisfy, in whole or in part, certain of our indemnity obligations under the Asset Purchase Agreement. If, on the 18 th month anniversary of the closing date, there are funds remaining in the escrow account, then the escrow account will be reduced by the difference, if a positive number, of (i) $2.5 million minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all escrow claims asserted by Mylan prior to this date that have either been paid out of the escrow account or are pending as of such date, and, within two business days of such date, the Escrow Agent will disburse such difference, if a positive number, to us. Within two business days of the second anniversary of the closing date, the Escrow Agent will release any funds remaining in the escrow account to us minus any amounts being reserved for escrow claims asserted by Mylan prior to such date. Upon the resolution of any pending escrow claims, the Escrow Agent will, within two business days of receipt of joint instructions or a final order from a court (as described in the Escrow Agreement) disburse such reserved amount to the parties entitled to such funds.

 

Management does not believe that we will be subject to indemnity claims contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement. However, in the event that such a claim is made, and if successful, we would be required to pay Mylan pursuant to the indemnification provisions of the Asset Purchase Agreement which may reduce the amount we ultimately collect from escrow or could even require us to return a portion of the net proceeds received from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Division.

 

Manufacturing Agreement

 

In connection with the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, PMI, entered into a Manufacturing Agreement (the “Manufacturing Agreement”) with Mylan. Pursuant to the terms of the Manufacturing Agreement, Mylan (or an affiliate or designee) will purchase the inventory of the Company’s Cold-EEZE ® brand and product line and PMI will manufacture certain products for Mylan, as described in the Manufacturing Agreement, at prices that reflect current market conditions for such products and include an agreed upon mark-up on our costs. Unless terminated sooner by the parties, the Manufacturing Agreement will remain in effect until March 29, 2022. Thereafter, the Manufacturing Agreement may be renewed by Mylan for up to five successive one year periods by providing notice of its intent to renew not less than 90 days prior to the expiration of the then-current term.

 

Transition Services Agreement

 

In connection with the Asset Purchase Agreement, we entered into a transition services agreement with Mylan to provide litigation support, insurance coverage, supply chain, customer support, finance, accounting, commercial advertising and packaging services, quality control, IT and research and development services to Mylan for time periods ranging from two to nine months from the closing date. We will continue to incur certain operating costs during the transition period to support Mylan.

Note 8 – Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share for continuing and discontinued operations are computed by dividing respective net income or loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue Common Stock were exercised or converted into Common Stock or resulted in the issuance of Common Stock that shared in the earnings of the entity. Diluted earnings (loss) per share also utilize the treasury stock method which prescribes a theoretical buy-back of shares from the theoretical proceeds of all options and warrants outstanding during the period. Options and warrants outstanding to acquire shares of our Common Stock at June 30, 2017 and 2016 were 2,209,000 and 1,706,500, respectively.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016 dilutive earnings (loss) per share is the same as basic earnings per share due to (i) the inclusion of Common Stock, in the form of stock options and warrants (“Common Stock Equivalents”), would have an anti-dilutive effect on the loss per share or (ii) there were no Common Stock Equivalents for the respective period. For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 there were 641,754 and 276,165, Common Stock Equivalents which were in the money, that were excluded from the earnings (loss) per share computation as a consequence of their anti-dilutive effect.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 there were 650,190 Common Stock Equivalents which were in the money, that were included in the fully diluted earnings per share computation. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, for continuing operations dilutive earnings (loss) per share is the same as basic earnings per share due to (i) the inclusion of Common Stock, in the form of stock options and warrants (“Common Stock Equivalents”), would have an anti-dilutive effect on the loss per share or (ii) there were no Common Stock Equivalents for the respective period. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, there were 244,112, Common Stock Equivalents which were in the money, that were excluded from the earnings (loss) per share computation as a consequence of their anti-dilutive effect.

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our interim unaudited condensed financial statements and related notes included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Quarterly Report”) and the audited financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2016 and the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, both of which are contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 24, 2017 (the “2016 Annual Report”). As used in this Quarterly Report, unless the context suggests otherwise, “we,” “us,” “our,” or “ProPhase” refer to ProPhase Labs, Inc. and its subsidiaries and consolidated variable interest entities, unless the context otherwise requires.

 

General

 

ProPhase was initially organized in Nevada in July 1989. Effective June 18, 2015, we changed our state of incorporation from the State of Nevada to the State of Delaware. We are a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of a diversified range of health care products and cold remedy products that are offered to the general public. We are also engaged in the research and development of potential over-the-counter (“OTC”) drug and natural base health products including supplements, personal care and cosmeceutical products.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

Prior to March 29, 2017, our flagship OTC drug brand was Cold-EEZE ® and our principal product was Cold-EEZE ® cold remedy zinc gluconate lozenges and various non-lozenge forms of our proprietary zinc gluconate formulation. On January 6, 2017, we signed an asset purchase agreement (as amended, the “Asset Purchase Agreement”), by and among the Company, Meda Consumer Healthcare Inc. (“MCH”) and Mylan Inc. (together with MCH, “Mylan”), for the sale of assets by us to Mylan. The sale of assets (i) was subject to stockholder approval and other customary closing conditions and (ii) consisted principally of the sale of our intellectual property rights and other assets relating to our Cold-EEZE ® brand and product line (collectively, referred to herein as the “Cold-EEZE ® Business”) to Mylan, including all current and pipeline over-the-counter allergy, cold, flu, multi-symptom relief and immune support treatments for adults and children to the extent each is, or is intended to be, branded “Cold-EEZE ® ”, and all private label versions thereof, including all formulations and derivatives thereof as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

 

A special meeting of our stockholders was held on March 29, 2017 (the “Special Meeting”). At the Special Meeting, our stockholders approved the sale of assets and the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement. Effective March 29, 2017, we completed the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business to Mylan. As a consequence of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we have classified as discontinued operations (i) the gain from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, (ii) all income and expenses attributable to the Cold-EEZE ® Business and (iii) the income tax expense attributed to the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business. Excluded from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business were our accounts receivable and inventory, and we also retained all liabilities associated with our Cold-EEZE ® Business operations arising prior to March 29, 2017.

 

Continuing Operations and Product Development

 

We continue to own and operate our manufacturing facility and manufacturing business in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and our headquarters in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. As part of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, we entered into a manufacturing agreement with Mylan and our wholly-owned subsidiary, Pharmaloz Manufacturing, Inc. (“PMI”), to supply various Cold-EEZE ® lozenge products to Mylan. In addition to the production service we provide to Mylan under the manufacturing agreement, we produce OTC drug and dietary supplement lozenges and other products for other third party customers in addition to performing operational tasks such as warehousing, customer order processing and shipping. We will seek to expand our contract manufacturing operations through developing new products and creating new contract manufacturing opportunities.

ProPhase Labs, Inc. and Subsidiaries

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

We are also pursuing a series of new product development and pre-commercialization initiatives in the dietary supplement category. Initial dietary supplement product development activities were completed in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2015 under the brand name of TK Supplements ® . The TK Supplements ® product line comprises three men’s health products: (i) Legendz XL ® for sexual health, (ii) Triple Edge XL ® , a daily energy booster plus testosterone support, and (iii) Super ProstaFlow Plus TM for prostate and urinary health. We recently completed a broad series of clinical studies which support important product claims which have now been incorporated in our product packaging and marketing communication. In addition to developing direct-to-consumer (“Direct Response”) marketing strategies of Legendz XL ® , we received initial product acceptance and shipped into a national chain drug retailer during the second quarter of Fiscal 2017. In addition, we have received initial product acceptance from several regional retailers to begin shipments in the third and fourth quarters of Fiscal 2017.

 

If we are successful in achieving retail distribution, we intend to ramp up the media spend for our Direct Response TV spots to support this retail launch with the added benefit that it should also generate additional direct to consumer sales. As with any new product launch, we anticipate losses from our TK Supplements ® initiatives as we optimize our retail and direct response strategy. Therefore, no assurance can be made that our new product efforts will be successful and/or profitable.

 

Additionally, we are active in exploring new product technologies, applications, product line extensions, new contract manufacturing applications and other new product opportunities consistent with our Company and brand image, and our standard of proven consumer benefit and efficacy.

 

Seasonality of the Business

 

Our net sales are derived principally from our OTC heath care and cold remedy products sold in the United States of America. Our sales are influenced by and subject to fluctuations in the timing of purchase and the ultimate level of demand for our products which are a function of the timing, length and severity of each cold season. Generally, a cold season is defined as the period of September to March when the incidence of the common cold rises as a consequence of the change in weather and other factors. We generally experience in the first, third and fourth quarter higher levels of net sales. Revenues and related marketing costs are generally at their lowest levels in the second quarter when customer demand generally declines.

 

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Results from Continuing Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2017

as Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2016

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, net sales were $1.9 million as compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in net sales from period to period is due principally to an increase in the timing of shipments of lozenge-based products principally as a result of initial shipments to Mylan’s new OTC warehouse facility.

 

Cost of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were $1.8 million as compared to $993,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Gross margins are generally influenced by fluctuations in quarter-to-quarter production volume, fixed production costs and related overhead absorption, raw ingredient costs, inventory mark to market write-downs, if any, and the timing of shipments to customers which are factors of the seasonality of our sales activities and products.

 

Sales and marketing expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $221,000 as compared to $236,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease of $15,000 in sales and marketing expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016 was principally due to a decrease in personnel and other sales costs.

 

General and administration (“G&A”) expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $1.3 million as compared to $943,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase of $363,000 in G&A expense for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016 was principally due to increases to professional services and personnel.

 

Research and development costs during the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $224,000, as compared to $121,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in research and development costs for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2016 was due principally to an increase in the amount and timing of our product development expenditures.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Other income (expense) for the three months ended June, 2017 and 2016 was income of $151,000 compared to an expense of $53,000, respectively. The income for the three month ended June 30, 2017 was principally the result of the $150,000 of transition service fees earned by us. Other expense for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was principally comprise of the interest expense, inclusive of the warrant and loan origination costs, incurred pursuant to the terms of the secured promissory notes which were repaid on March 29, 2017.

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, results from operations for our Cold-EEZE ® Business are classified as discontinued operations. The carve out of the discontinued operations are derived from identifying and carving out the specific assets, liabilities, net sales, cost of sales, operating expenses and interest expense associated with the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s operations. In addition, G&A, including personnel expenses, and bonuses, and research and development overhead costs incurred by us (for which the discontinued operation benefits from such resources) are allocated to discontinued operations based upon the percentage of the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s net sales to our consolidated net sales. For the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we allocated (i) zero and $319,000, respectively, included in G&A and (ii) zero and $48,000, respectively, included in research and development expenses, in the accompanying condensed statements of operations.

 

As a consequence of the effects of the above, the net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $1.5 million, or ($0.09) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.08) per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Net loss from discontinued operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $845,000, or ($0.05) per share, as compared to net income of $198,000, or $0.01 per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $2.3 million, or ($0.14) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.1 million, or ($0.07) per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

 

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Results from Continuing Operations for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2017

as Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2016

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net sales were $2.7 million as compared to $2.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in net sales from period to period is due principally to an increase in the timing of shipments of lozenge-based products principally as a result of initial shipments to Mylan’s new OTC warehouse facility.

 

Cost of sales for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were $2.4 million as compared to $1.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Gross margins are generally influenced by fluctuations in quarter-to-quarter production volume, fixed production costs and related overhead absorption, raw ingredient costs, inventory mark to market write-downs, if any, and the timing of shipments to customers, which are factors of the seasonality of our sales activities and products.

 

Sales and marketing expense for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $336,000 as compared to $534,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease of $198,000 in sales and marketing expense for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016 was principally due to a decrease in advertising costs.

 

General and administration (“G&A”) expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $2.4 million as compared to $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase of $241,000 in G&A expense for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016 was principally due to the net effect of (i) an increase principally due to a one-time charge for certain obsolete equipment, offset by (ii) a decrease in professional and legal fees.

 

Research and development costs during the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $258,000 as compared to $160,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in research and development costs for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2016 was due principally to an increase in the amount and timing of our product development expenditures.

 

Other income (expense) for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 was income of $97,000 compared to an expense of $105,000, respectively. Other income (expense) for the six month ended June 30, 2017 was principally the result of the net effects of (i) $150,000 of transition service fees earned by us, offset by (ii) interest expense, inclusive of the warrant and loan origination costs, of $54,000 incurred pursuant to the terms of the secured promissory notes. Other income (expense) for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was principally comprise of the interest expense, inclusive of the warrant and loan origination costs, incurred pursuant to the terms of the secured promissory notes which were repaid on March 29, 2017.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, we charged to discontinued operations $19.5 million for estimated federal and state income taxes arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and we have realized an income tax benefit from continuing operations of $18.1 million as a consequence of the utilization of the federal and state net operating losses.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, results from operations for our Cold-EEZE ® Business are classified as discontinued operations The carve out of the discontinued operations are derived from identifying and carving out the specific assets, liabilities, net sales, cost of sales, operating expenses and interest expense associated with the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s operations. In addition, G&A, including personnel expenses and bonuses, and research and development overhead expenses incurred by us (for which the discontinued operation benefits from such resources) are allocated to discontinued operations based upon the percentage of the Cold-EEZE ® Business’s net sales to our consolidated net sales. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, we allocated (i) $348,000 and $656,000, respectively, included in G&A and (ii) $52,000 and $95,000, respectively, included in research and development expenses, in the accompanying statements of operations.

 

As a consequence of the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, we recorded a gain on the sale of the assets of $26.3 million, net of $19.5 million of income tax.

 

As a consequence of the effects of the above, the net income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $15.5 million, or $0.91 per share, as compared to a net loss of $2.6 million, or ($0.15) per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Net income from discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $26.9 million, or $1.58 per share, as compared to net income of $168,000, or $0.01 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2016. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $42.3 million, or $2.49 per share, as compared to a net loss of $2.5 million, or ($0.14) per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our aggregate cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2017 were $37.3 million compared to $441,000 at December 31, 2016. The increase of $36.9 million in our cash balance for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was principally due to the net effect of (i) the net proceeds of $40.8 million, excluding the $5.0 million escrow receivable, derived from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, (ii) proceeds from the exercise of stock options and warrants of $171,000, offset by (iii) payments of $1.5 million to retire the secured promissory notes, (iv) payments of $1.9 for the repurchase our Common Stock and (v) capital expenditures of $132,000.

 

Equity Line of Credit

 

On July 30, 2015, we entered into a new equity line of credit agreement (such arrangement, the “2015 Equity Line”) with Dutchess Opportunity Fund II, LP (“Dutchess”). Pursuant to the 2015 Equity Line, Dutchess committed to purchase, subject to certain restrictions and conditions, up to 3,200,000 shares of our Common Stock, over a period of 36 months from the effectiveness of the registration statement registering the resale of shares purchased by Dutchess pursuant to the Investment Agreement.

 

We may, at our discretion, draw on the 2015 Equity Line from time to time, as and when we determine appropriate in accordance with the terms and conditions of the 2015 Equity Line. The maximum number of shares that we are entitled to put to Dutchess in any one draw down notice shall not exceed 500,000 shares with a purchase price calculated in accordance with the 2015 Equity Line. We may deliver a notice for a subsequent put from time to time, following the one day pricing period for the prior put.

 

The purchase price shall be set at ninety-five percent (95%) of the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Common Stock during the one trading day immediately following our put notice. We have the right to withdraw all or any portion of any put, except that portion of the put that has already been sold to a third party, including any portion of a put that is below the minimum acceptable price set forth on the put notice, before the closing. In the event Dutchess receives more than a five percent (5%) return on the net sales for a specific put, Dutchess must remit such excess proceeds to us; however, in the event Dutchess receives less than a five percent (5%) return on the net sales for a specific put, Dutchess will have the right to deduct from the proceeds of the put amount on the applicable closing date so Dutchess’s return will equal five percent (5%).

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

There are put restrictions applied on days between the draw down notice date and the closing date with respect to that particular put. In addition, Dutchess will not be obligated to purchase shares if Dutchess’ total number of shares beneficially held at that time would exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock as determined in accordance with Rule 13d-1(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In addition, we are not permitted to draw on the facility unless there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the shares.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the 2015 Equity Line, we are obligated to file one or more registrations statements with the SEC to register the resale by Dutchess of the shares of Common Stock issued or issuable under the 2015 Equity Line. In addition, we are obligated to use all commercially reasonable efforts to have the registration statement declared effective by the SEC within 90 days after the registration statement is filed. On August 4, 2015, we filed a registration statement for the underlying shares of the 2015 Equity Line with the SEC and the registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on August 21, 2015.

 

At June 30, 2017, we have 2,450,000 shares of our Common Stock available for sale, at our discretion, under the terms of the 2015 Equity Line and covered pursuant to an effective registration statement.

 

General

 

As a consequence of the seasonality of our business, we realize variations in operating results and demand for working capital from quarter to quarter. As of June 30, 2017, we had working capital of approximately $38.8 million and 2,450,000 shares of Common Stock available for sale under the 2015 Equity line. We believe our current working capital, cash generated from operations and available 2015 Equity Line is an acceptable and adequate level of working capital to support our business for at least the next twelve months.

 

We have indemnification obligations to Mylan under the Asset Purchase Agreement that may require us to make future payments to Mylan and other related persons for any damages incurred by Mylan or such related persons as a result of any breaches of our representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in the Asset Purchase Agreement, or arising from the Retained Liabilities (as such term is defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement) or certain third party claims specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement. Generally, our representations and warranties survive for a period of 24 months from the closing date, other than certain fundamental representations which survive until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations. There is a limited indemnification cap with respect to a majority of the Company’s indemnification obligations under the Asset Purchase Agreement with the exception of claims for actual fraud, the breach of any fundamental representations and certain other items, which have a larger indemnification cap (e.g., the purchase price).

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we, Mylan, and an escrow agent entered into an Escrow Agreement at closing, pursuant to which Mylan deposited $5 million of the aggregate purchase price for the Cold-EEZE ® Business into an escrow account established with the Escrow Agent in order to satisfy, in whole or in part, certain of our indemnity obligations under the Asset Purchase Agreement. If, on the 18 th month anniversary of the closing date, there are funds remaining in the escrow account, then the escrow account will be reduced by the difference, if a positive number, of (i) $2.5 million minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all escrow claims asserted by Mylan prior to this date that have either been paid out of the escrow account or are pending as of such date, and, within two business days of such date, the Escrow Agent will disburse such difference, if a positive number, to us. Within two business days of the second anniversary of the closing date, the Escrow Agent will release any funds remaining in the escrow account to us minus any amounts being reserved for escrow claims asserted by Mylan prior to such date. Upon the resolution of any pending escrow claims, the Escrow Agent will, within two business days of receipt of joint instructions or a final order from a court (as described in the Escrow Agreement) disburse such reserved amount to the parties entitled to such funds.

 

Our current cash position supports our (i) operations, (ii) reorganization costs associated with the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business, (iii) current research and development expenditures and (iv) initial operating losses related to new products, including the launch of Legendz XL ® . Additionally, we are active in exploring new product technologies, applications, product line extensions, new contract manufacturing applications and other new business opportunities consistent with our Company and brand image, and our standard of proven consumer benefit and efficacy.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Management is not aware of any other trends, events or uncertainties that have or are reasonably likely to have a material negative impact upon our (i) short-term or long-term liquidity, or (ii) net sales or income from continuing operations. Any challenge to our patent or trademark rights could have a material adverse effect on our future; however, we are not aware of any condition that would make such an event probable. Our business is subject to seasonal variations thereby impacting our liquidity and working capital during the course of our fiscal year.

 

To the extent that we do not generate sufficient cash from operations, our cash balances will decline. We may also use our cash to explore and/or acquire new product technologies, applications, product line extensions, new contract manufacturing applications and other new business opportunities. In the event that our available cash is insufficient to support such initiatives, we may need to incur indebtedness or issue Common Stock to finance plans for growth. Volatility in the credit markets and the liquidity of major financial institutions may have an adverse effect on our ability to fund our business strategy through borrowings, under either existing or newly created instruments in the public or private markets on terms that we believe to be reasonable, if at all.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

It is not our usual business practice to enter into off-balance sheet arrangements such as guarantees on loans and financial commitments and retained interests in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity for securitization purposes. We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a material current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included under Item 1 of this Part I. However, certain accounting policies are deemed “critical”, as they require management’s highest degree of judgment, estimates and assumptions. These accounting estimates and disclosures have been discussed with Audit Committee of our Board of Directors. A discussion of our critical accounting policies, the judgments and uncertainties affecting their application and the likelihood that materially different amounts would be reported under different conditions or using different assumptions are as follows:

 

Revenue Recognition – Sales Allowances

 

When providing for the appropriate sales returns, allowances, cash discounts and cooperative incentive promotion costs (“Sales Allowances”), we apply a uniform and consistent method for making certain assumptions for estimating these provisions. These estimates and assumptions are based on historical experience, current trends and other factors that management believes to be relevant at the time the financial statements are prepared. Management reviews the accounting policies, assumptions, estimates and judgments on a quarterly basis. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we are responsible for and continue to accept product returns of the Cold-EEZE ® Business for product shipped prior to March 30, 2017. Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, we allocated and, in June 2017, issued a credit to Mylan in an aggregate of $400,000 for future sales returns and allowances arising from certain product returns that were sold by us prior to March 30, 2017.

 

As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we included a provision for sales allowances of zero and $108,000, respectively. Additionally, accrued advertising and other allowances as of June 30, 2017 included (i) $934,000 for estimated future sales returns and (ii) $598,000 for cooperative incentive promotion costs. As of December 31, 2016, accrued advertising and other allowances included (i) $1.2 million for estimated future sales returns and (ii) $1.5 million for cooperative incentive promotion costs.

 

Income Taxes

 

As of December 31, 2016, we have net operating loss carry-forwards of approximately $47.1 million for federal purposes that will expire beginning in Fiscal 2020 through 2036. Additionally, there are net operating loss carry-forwards of $22.1 million for state purposes that will expire beginning in Fiscal 2020 through 2036.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of

Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Based upon preliminary estimates, we believe that a significant portion of our income tax liability of $19.5 million arising from our taxable gain for federal and state income tax purposes from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business will be offset to the extent of our current year losses from operations, the write-off for tax purposes of the tax-basis of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and the available net operating loss carryforwards at the federal and state levels. However, for state income tax purposes, based upon the available state net operating loss carryforwards and corresponding limitations, we estimate a net income tax expense arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business of $1.3 million.

 

Utilization of net operating loss carryforwards may be subject to limitations as set forth in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code (“Section 382”). Based on our preliminary Section 382 analysis, we do not believe that our current net operating loss carryforwards are subject to these limitations as of June 30, 2017. However, until we complete a final Section 382 analysis upon filing of our 2017 income tax return, there can be no assurances that our preliminary analysis is accurate or complete. Should we identify any limitations upon the completion of our final Section 382 analysis, the impact could be material to our consolidated financial statements and that we could incur additional income tax expense arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business.

 

Until sufficient taxable income to offset the temporary timing differences attributable to operations, and the tax deductions attributable to option, warrant and stock activities are assured, a valuation allowance equaling the total deferred tax asset is being provided. As a consequence of the accumulated losses of the Company, we believe that this allowance is required due to the uncertainty of realizing these tax benefits in the future.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, on revenue recognition. The new standard provides for a single five-step model to be applied to all revenue contracts with customers as well as requires additional financial statement disclosures that will enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows relating to customer contracts. Companies have an option to use either a retrospective approach or cumulative effect adjustment approach to implement the standard. This ASU, as amended, is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017. We are currently assessing the impact of this update, but preliminarily believe that its adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02 “Leases”. The new standard will require most leases to be recognized on the balance sheet which will increase reported assets and liabilities. Lessor accounting remains substantially similar to current guidance. The new standard is effective for annual and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, which for us is the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and mandates a modified retrospective transition method. We do not intend to early adopt and are currently assessing the impact of this update, but preliminarily believe that its adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments—Credit Losses.” The standard modifies the impairment model for most financial assets, including trade accounts receivables and loans, and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured at amortized cost. Under this model, entities will be required to estimate the lifetime expected credit loss on such instruments and record an allowance to offset the amortized cost basis of the financial asset, resulting in a net presentation of the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. The effective date of the standard is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of adoption of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments” . The new standard attempts to reduce diversity in practice in how cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU No. 2016-15 provides guidance on eight specific cash flow issues. The new guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted including adoption in an interim period. We do not intend to early adopt and we are currently assessing the impact of adoption of this update will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, “Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other than Inventory”. The new standard requires entities should recognize the income tax consequences of an asset other than inventory when the asset transfer occurs. The new guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and requires a modified retrospective adoption through a cumulative effect adjustment directly to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. We are currently evaluating the impact of adoption of this update on our consolidated financial statements.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report contains “forward looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These forward looking statements relate to future events or our future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Many of these factors are beyond our ability to predict. Given the risks and uncertainties surrounding forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on these statements. Forward-looking statements typically are identified by use of terms such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “plan”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential”, “continue” and similar words although some forward-looking statements are expressed differently. This Quarterly Report may contain forward-looking statements attributed to third parties relating to their estimates regarding the growth of our markets. You are cautioned that such forward looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and that all forward-looking statements address matters that involve risk and uncertainties, and there are many important risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, achievements and prospects, as well as those of the markets we serve, to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report.

 

Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to:

 

The ability of our management to successfully implement our business plan and strategy;
Our ability to fund our operations including the cost and availability of capital and credit;
Our ability to compete effectively, including our ability to maintain and increase our markets and/or market share in the markets in which we do business;
Our ability to grow our manufacturing business and operate it profitably;
Our ability to successfully develop and commercialize our existing products and new products without leveraging the Cold-EEZE ® brand name;
Changes in our retail and distribution customers strategic business plans including, but not limited to, (i) expansions, mergers, and/or consolidations, (ii) retail shelf space allocations for products within each outlet and in particular the homeopathic and health care category in which we compete, (iii) changes in their private label assortment and (iv) product selections, distribution allocation, merchandising programs and retail pricing of our products as well as competitive products;
The general financial and economic uncertainty, fluctuations in consumer confidence and the strength of the United States economy, and their impacts on our business including demand for our products;
Our ability to protect our proprietary rights;
Our continued ability to comply with regulations relating to our current products and any new products we develop, including our ability to effectively respond to changes in laws and regulations or the interpretation thereof including changing market rules and evolving federal, state and regional laws and regulations;
Potential disruptions in our ability to manufacture our products or our access to raw materials;
Seasonal fluctuations in demand for our products;
Our ability to attract, retain and motivate our key employees;
Other risks identified in this Quarterly Report.

 

You should also consider carefully the statements under other sections of this Quarterly Report and our 2016 Annual Report, as well as in other documents we file from time to time with the SEC which address additional risks that could cause our actual results to differ from those set forth in any forward-looking statements. Our forward-looking statements speak only as the date of this Quarterly Report. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Like virtually all commercial enterprises, we can be exposed to the risk (“market risk”) that the cash flows to be received or paid relating to certain financial instruments could change as a result of changes in interest rate, exchange rates, commodity prices, equity prices and other market changes.

 

Our operations are not subject to risks of material foreign currency fluctuations, nor do we use derivative financial instruments in our investment practices. We place our marketable investments in instruments that meet high credit quality standards. We do not expect material losses with respect to our investment portfolio or exposure to market risks associated with interest rates. The impact on our results of one percentage point change in short-term interest rates would not have a material impact on our future earnings, fair value, or cash flows related to investments in cash equivalents or interest-earning marketable securities.

 

Current economic conditions may cause a decline in business and consumer spending which could adversely affect our business and financial performance including the collection of accounts receivables, realization of inventory and recoverability of assets. In addition, our business and financial performance may be adversely affected by current and future economic conditions, including due to a reduction in the availability of credit, financial market volatility and recession.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

The management of the Company, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of June 30, 2017. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of that date, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports 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, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurances that the objectives of the control system will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the company have been detected. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. However, our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives.

Part II. Other Information

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

The Company is not currently involved in any legal proceeding arising in the normal course of business. From time to time, the Company could become involved in disputes and various litigation matters that arise in the normal course of business. These may include disputes and lawsuits related to intellectual property, licensing, contract law and employee relations matters.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

The risks described in Item 1A. Risk Factors of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2017 (“May 2017 Quarterly Report”) are updated as follows:

 

Any of the following risks could materially affect our business, financial condition, or results of operations. These risks could also cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements contained herein and elsewhere. The risks described in our May 2017 Quarterly Report, as updated below are not the only risks facing us. Additional risks not currently known to us or those we currently deem to be immaterial may also materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

We have a history of losses

 

We have experienced net losses for each of the four of the past five fiscal years. There can be no assurance that our strategic focus will result in any revenue growth or that we will be successful in initiating or acquiring any new lines of business, or that any such new lines of business will achieve profitability. As of June 30, 2017, we had working capital of approximately $38.8 million which we believe is an acceptable and adequate level of working capital to support our business for at least the next twelve months ending August 2018. Our ability to fund working capital and debt service needs will depend on our ability to generate cash in the future.

 

Our ability to use our net operating loss carryforwards to offset future taxable income may be subject to certain limitations

 

In general, under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Section 382”), a corporation that undergoes an “ownership change” is subject to limitations on its ability to use its pre-change net operating loss carryforwards, or NOLs, to offset future taxable income. Future changes in our stock ownership, some of which are outside of our control, could result in an ownership change under Section 382. Furthermore, our ability to use NOLs of companies that we may acquire in the future may be subject to limitations.

 

Based upon preliminary estimates, we believe that a significant portion of our income tax liability of $19.5 million arising from our taxable gain for federal and state income tax purposes from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business will be offset to the extent of our current year losses from operations, the write-off for tax purposes of the tax-basis of the Cold-EEZE ® Business and the available net operating loss carryforwards at the federal and state levels.

 

Based on our preliminary Section 382 analysis, we do not believe that our current net operating loss carryforwards are subject to these limitations as of June 30, 2017. However, until we complete a final Section 382 analysis upon filing of our 2017 income tax return, there can be no assurances that our preliminary analysis is accurate or complete. Should we identify any limitations upon the completion of our final Section 382 analysis, the impact could be material to our consolidated financial statements and that we could incur additional income tax expense arising from the sale of the Cold-EEZE ® Business.

 

Future sales of shares of our Common Stock in the public market could adversely affect the trading price of shares of our Common Stock and our ability to raise funds in new stock offerings

 

Future sales of substantial amounts of shares of our Common Stock in the public market, or the perception that such sales are likely to occur, could affect prevailing trading prices of our Common Stock.

 

As of June 30, 2017, there were outstanding options, which were fully vested, to purchase an aggregate of 1,609,000 shares of our Common Stock at an average exercise price of $1.21 per share. If these options are exercised, and the holders of these options were to attempt to sell a substantial amount of their holdings at once, the market price of our Common Stock would likely decline. Moreover, the perceived risk of this potential dilution could cause stockholders to attempt to sell their shares and investors to “short” our stock, a practice in which an investor sells shares that he or she does not own at prevailing market prices, hoping to purchase shares later at a lower price to cover the sale. As each of these events would cause the number of shares of Common Stock being offered for sale to increase, our Common Stock’s market price would likely further decline. All of these events could combine to make it very difficult for us to sell equity or equity-related securities in the future at a time and price that we deem appropriate.

 

  30  

 

 

Our officers and directors own a substantial amount of our Common Stock

 

As of June 30, 2017, our executive officers and directors beneficially owned approximately 25% of our Common Stock. These individuals have significant influence over the outcome of all matters submitted to stockholders for approval, including the election of directors. Consequently, they exercise substantial influence over all major decisions including major corporate actions such as mergers and other business combinations transactions which could result in or prevent a change of control of the Company. Circumstances may occur in which the interests of our officers and directors could be in conflict with the interests of other stockholders. Accordingly, a stockholder’s ability to influence us through voting their shares may be limited or the market price of our Common Stock may be adversely affected.

I, Ted Karkus, certify that:

 

1. I have reviewed this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of ProPhase Labs, Inc.;
   
2. Based on my knowledge, this Quarterly Report does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which such statements were made, not misleading with respect to the period covered by this Quarterly Report;
