2. GOING CONCERN AND MANAGEMENT’S LIQUIDITY PLANS
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset amounts or the classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company incurred losses from continuing operations of $1,704,342 and $1,722,303 during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and has an accumulated deficit of $69,442,454 at March 31, 2017. Cash used in operating activities was $2,060,414 and $1,809,883 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The aforementioned factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company needs to raise additional capital in order to expand its business objectives. The Company funded its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 primarily through private placement offerings of $1,585,500 (net of offering costs of $4,500) and $2,851,610, respectively (See also Note 14 — Subsequent Events, related to proceeds from private placement offerings during April and May 2017). If the Company is not able to obtain additional sources of capital, it may not have sufficient funds to continue to operate the business for the next twelve months. Historically, the Company has been successful in raising funds to support its capital needs. Management believes that it will be successful in obtaining additional financing; however, no assurance can be provided that the Company will be able to do so. There is no assurance that these funds will be sufficient to enable the Company to attain profitable operations or continue as a going concern. To the extent that the Company is unsuccessful, the Company may need to curtail its operations and implement a plan to extend payables and reduce overhead until sufficient additional capital is raised to support further operations. There can be no assurance that such a plan will be successful. Such a plan could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations, and ultimately the Company could be forced to discontinue its operations, liquidate and/or seek reorganization in bankruptcy. These condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
