1.Operations and Organization
Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is a biopharmaceutical company whose principal operations are the development of innovative treatments for cancer. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $154,687,242 at December 31, 2018 and anticipates incurring losses through fiscal year 2019 and beyond. The Company has not yet generated commercial revenues and has funded its operations to date through the sale of shares of its common stock and warrants, exercises of stock warrants, interest income from cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, and proceeds from reimbursed research and development costs. The Company believes that its cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, including the proceeds from its underwritten public offering in January 2019 as described in Note 18, will be sufficient to cover its cash flow requirements for its current activities for at least for the next 12 months from the date these financial statements were issued. Management believes it has the capability of managing the Company’s operations within existing cash available by focusing on select research and development activities, selecting projects in conjunction with potential financings and milestones, and efficiently managing its general and administrative affairs.
