|Significant accounting policies||
Basis of presentation
The condensed consolidated interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”) and are presented in United States dollars. The functional currency of the Company and each of its subsidiaries is the United States dollar.
The accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Adgero, Adgero Bio, Del Mar BC, Callco, and Exchangeco. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these condensed consolidated interim financial statements are set out below and have been consistently applied to all periods presented.
Certain prior period balances have been reclassified to conform with the current year’s presentation.
Unaudited interim financial data
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and the notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the June 30, 2021 audited financial statements of the Company included in the Company’s Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 28, 2021. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation. The results for three and six months ended December 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022, or for any other future annual or interim period.
Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, expenses, contingent assets, and contingent liabilities as at the end of, or during, the reporting period. Actual results could significantly differ from those estimates. Significant areas requiring management to make estimates include the valuation of equity instruments issued for services and clinical trial accruals. Further details of the nature of these assumptions and conditions may be found in the relevant notes to these condensed consolidated interim financial statements.
Loss per share
Income or loss per share is calculated based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. For the six-month periods ended December 31, 2021, and 2020 diluted loss per share does not differ from basic loss per share since the effect of the Company’s warrants, stock options, and convertible preferred shares is anti-dilutive. As of December 31, 2021, potential common shares of 19,152 (2020 – 11,710) related to outstanding common share warrants, 2,100 (2020 – 2,153) related to outstanding Series C preferred stock warrants, 10,089 (2020 – 6,487) related to stock options, nil (2020 – 153) relating to outstanding Series B convertible preferred shares, and 14,789 (2020 – 20,349) relating to outstanding Series C convertible preferred shares were excluded from the calculation of net loss per common share.
Acquired in-process research and development expense
The Company acquired in-process research and development assets in connection with its Merger with Adgero (note 3). As the acquired in-process research and development assets were deemed to have no current, or alternative future use, an expense of $16,094 was recognized in the condensed consolidated interim statements of operations for the six-month period ended December 31, 2020.
Property, equipment, and intangibles
Property, equipment and intangibles are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life of three years. Depreciation expense is recognized from the date the equipment was put into use.
Recently adopted accounting standards
In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) (“ASU 2020-06”) to simplify accounting for certain financial instruments. ASU 2020-06 eliminates the current models that require separation of beneficial conversion and cash conversion features from convertible instruments and simplifies the derivative scope exception guidance pertaining to equity classification of contracts in an entity’s own equity. The new standard also introduces additional disclosures for convertible debt and freestanding instruments that are indexed to and settled in an entity’s own equity. ASU 2020-06 amends the diluted earnings per share guidance, including the requirement to use the if-converted method for all convertible instruments. ASU 2020-06 is effective July 1, 2022 and should be applied on a full or modified retrospective basis, with early adoption permitted beginning on July 1, 2021. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective July 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
Recently issued accounting standards
Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated interim financial statements.
