Operations and Organization

1.Operations and Organization


Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”, or “Rexahn Pharmaceuticals”), a Delaware corporation, is a development stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative treatments for cancer and other medical needs.  The Company had an accumulated deficit of $72,810,707 at December 31, 2013 and anticipates incurring losses through fiscal year 2014 and beyond.  The Company has not yet generated commercial revenues and has funded its operating losses to date through the sale of shares of its common stock and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock, convertible debt, financings, interest income from cash and cash equivalents, and proceeds from reimbursed research and development costs.  The Company believes that its cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, including the proceeds received from the registered direct offering as described in Note 18, will be sufficient to cover its cash flow requirements for at least the next 24 months.  Management 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.

Reverse Merger Acquisition

Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among Rexahn, Corp (“Rexahn”), Corporate Road Show.Com Inc. (“CRS”), a New York corporation and predecessor corporation of the Company, CRS Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of CRS (“Merger Sub”), CRS Delaware, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of CRS, immediately after giving effect to a 1-for-100 reverse stock split and the reincorporation of CRS as a Delaware corporation under the name Rexahn Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Rexahn Pharmaceuticals”), on May 13, 2005, Merger Sub merged with and into Rexahn, with Rexahn surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Rexahn Pharmaceuticals (the “Acquisition Merger”). In the Acquisition Merger, (i) each share of the issued and outstanding common stock of Rexahn (other than dissenting shares) was converted into the right to receive five shares of Rexahn Pharmaceuticals common stock; and (ii) each issued, outstanding and unexercised option to purchase a share of Rexahn common stock was converted into an option to purchase five shares of Rexahn Pharmaceuticals common stock.

Shares of Rexahn Pharmaceuticals common stock issued in the Acquisition Merger were exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Regulation D under the Securities Act, Regulation S under the Securities Act, or both. These shares of Rexahn Pharmaceuticals common stock are deemed “restricted securities” and bear an appropriate restrictive legend indicating that the resale of such shares may be made only pursuant to registration under the Securities Act or pursuant to an available exemption from such registration.

For accounting purposes, the Acquisition Merger was accounted for as a reverse acquisition of CRS (legal acquirer) by Rexahn (accounting acquirer).  As a result, following the Acquisition Merger, the historical financial statements of Rexahn became the historical financial statements of the Company.

Merger of Subsidiary


On September 29, 2005, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Rexahn, was merged with and into the Company and Rexahn’s separate existence was terminated.
