Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance on Revenue from Contracts with Customers, to clarify the principles used to recognize revenue for all entities. The core principle of the new guidance is that an entity will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. The standard provides a five-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. Additionally, the guidance requires disaggregated disclosures related to the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue that is recognized. The guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The FASB has subsequently delayed this standard by one year. Early adoption is permitted as of the original effective date. The Company is currently evaluating the effects, if any, the adoption of this guidance will have on the Company’s financial statements.

There are no additional accounting pronouncements issued or effective during the six months ended June 30, 2015 that have had or are expected to have an impact on our financial statements.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The principal areas of estimation reflected in the financial statements are anticipated milestone payments, stock based compensation, valuation of warrants, income tax valuation allowance, inventory obsolescence reserve, sales returns and allowances and the allowance for doubtful accounts.

Guaranteed Rights of Return

The Company has granted guaranteed rights of return to two dental distributors. The Company defers recognition of revenue on these accounts until either the distributor provides notification to the Company that the product has been sold to the end consumer or the guaranteed right of return period expires. Once notification has been received and verified, the Company records revenue in that accounting period. The Company had $17,855 and $21,222 of revenue deferred under guaranteed rights of return arrangements included in deferred revenue in the balance sheets as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.


Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost, which includes material, labor and overhead, is determined on a first-in, first-out basis. On a quarterly basis, we analyze our inventory levels and reserve for inventory that is expected to expire prior to being sold, inventory that has a cost basis in excess of its expected net realizable value, inventory in excess of expected sales requirements, or inventory that fails to meet commercial sale specifications. Expired inventory is disposed of and the related costs are written off to the reserve for inventory obsolescence. The inventory reserve was approximately $68,200 and $50,100 as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

Stock-Based Payment Arrangements

Generally, all forms of stock-based payments, including stock option grants, warrants, and restricted stock grants are measured at their fair value on the awards’ grant date typically using a Black-Scholes pricing model. Stock-based compensation awards issued to non-employees for services rendered are recorded at the fair value of the stock-based payment. The expense resulting from stock-based payments are recorded in research and development expense or selling, general and administrative expense in the statement of operations, depending on the nature of the services provided. Stock-based payment expense is recorded over the requisite service period in which the grantee provides services to us, to the extent the stock option grants, warrants, or restricted stock grants do not vest at the grant date they are subject to forfeiture.

Stock-Based Compensation

GAAP requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values as of the grant date. Stock-based compensation expense is recorded over the requisite service period in which the grantee provides services to us, to the extent the options do not vest at the grant date and are subject to forfeiture. For performance-based awards that do not include market-based conditions, we record share-based compensation expense only when the performance-based milestone is deemed probable of achievement. We utilize both quantitative and qualitative criteria to judge whether milestones are probable of achievement.

For awards with market-based performance conditions, we recognize the grant-date fair value of the award over the derived service period regardless of whether the underlying performance condition is met.



The Company used the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model in calculating the relative fair value of any warrants that are issued.

Net Loss Per Share

During all periods presented, the Company had securities outstanding that could potentially dilute basic earnings per share in the future, but were excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share, as their effect would have been antidilutive. Because the Company reported a net loss for all periods presented, shares associated with the stock options and warrants are not included because they are antidilutive. Basic and diluted net loss per share amounts are the same for the periods presented. Net loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenues from the sales of product when title and risk of loss pass to the customer, which is generally when the product is shipped.

The Company records allowances for discounts and product returns at the time of sale as a reduction of revenues as such allowances can be reliably estimated based on historical experience or known trends. The Company maintains a return policy that allows customers to return product within a specified period of time prior to and subsequent to the expiration date of the product. The estimate of the provision for returns is analyzed quarterly and is based upon many factors, including industry data of product return rates, historical experience of actual returns, analysis of the level of inventory in the distribution channel, if any, and reorder rates. If the history or product returns changes, the reserve will be adjusted. While the Company believes that the reserves it has established are reasonable and appropriate based upon current facts and circumstances, applying different judgments to the same facts and circumstances would result in the estimated amounts for sales returns and chargebacks to vary. Because the ProBiora3 products have only had limited distribution, the Company could experience different circumstances in the future and these differences could be material.

The Company has granted guaranteed rights of return at various times to certain customers. At this time there are two dental distributors with guaranteed rights of return. Orders are processed and shipped on these accounts, however, the Company defers recognition of revenue until the customer provides notification to the Company that the product has sold to the end consumer. Once notification has been received and verified, the Company will record revenue in that accounting period.


The Company is dependent on key suppliers to provide probiotics, blending, warehousing and packaging of its EvoraPlus, EvoraKids, EvoraPro, EvoraPet, and Teddy’s Pride products. The Company had four key suppliers during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. The majority of the Company’s cost of revenues is from these key suppliers during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. Accounts payable and accrued expenses for these vendors totaled approximately $60,643 and $189,120 as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents. The Company maintains cash accounts in commercial banks, which may, at times, exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts. The Company believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash and cash equivalents. As of June 30, 2015, the uninsured portion of this balance was $7,793,503. As of December 31, 2014, the uninsured portion of this balance was $10,198,921.
