Description of Business and Basis of Presentation


The Company

BIOLASE, Inc. (“BIOLASE” and, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”) is a medical device company that develops, manufactures, markets, and sells laser systems in dentistry and medicine. The Company’s products advance the practice of dentistry and medicine for patients and health care professionals. The Company’s proprietary dental laser systems allow dentists, periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons, and other dental specialists to perform a broad range of minimally invasive dental procedures, including cosmetic, restorative, and complex surgical applications. The Company’s laser systems are designed to provide clinically superior results for many types of dental procedures compared to those achieved with drills, scalpels, and other conventional instruments. The Company has clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to market and sell its laser systems in the United States and also has the necessary registration to market and sell its laser systems in Canada, the European Union, and many other countries outside the United States.

Basis of Presentation

The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of BIOLASE and its wholly-owned subsidiaries and have been prepared on a basis consistent with the December 31, 2019 audited consolidated financial statements and include all material adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments and the elimination of all material intercompany transactions and balances, necessary to fairly present the information set forth therein. These unaudited, interim, consolidated financial statements do not include all the footnotes, presentations, and disclosures normally required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete consolidated financial statements.

The consolidated results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The accompanying consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, included in BIOLASE’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 30, 2020 (the “2019 Form 10-K”).

Liquidity and Management’s Plans

The Company incurred losses from operations and net losses, and used cash in operating activities for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The Company’s recurring losses, level of cash used in operations, and need for additional capital in the future, including uncertainties surrounding the impact of COVID-19, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

COVID-19 Risk and Uncertainties and CARES Act

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted global economic activity, tax and many countries and many states in the United States have reacted to the pandemic by instituting quarantines, mandating business and school closures and restricting travel. These mandated business closures have included dental office closures in Europe and the United States for all but emergency procedures. The Company’s salespeople were unable to call on dental customers during these closures. In addition, most dental shows and workshops scheduled in the first and second quarters of 2020 were canceled. There is no assurance that the Company’s sales will return to normal levels during the second half 2020 or at any time thereafter.  The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve and it is uncertain as to the full magnitude that the pandemic will have on the Company’s financial condition, liquidity, and future results of operations. Management is actively monitoring the global situation on the Company’s financial condition, liquidity, operations, suppliers, industry, and workforce and has taken actions to mitigate the impact including among other things, temporary reductions in pay, furloughs of certain positions and deferrals in payment for cash preservation. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the global responses to curb its spread, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its results of operations, financial condition, or liquidity for fiscal year 2020.


On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (the “CARES Act”). The CARES Act, among other things, includes provisions relating to refundable payroll tax credits, deferment of employer side social security payments, net operating loss carryback periods, alternative minimum tax credit refunds, modifications to the net interest deduction limitations, increased limitations on qualified charitable contributions, and technical corrections to tax depreciation methods for qualified improvement property.


As of the date of issuance of these unaudited financial statements, the Company is unable to determine any future impact that the CARES Act will have on our financial condition, results of operations, or liquidity.

Paycheck Protection Program Loan (“PPP Loan”)

On April 14, 2020, BIOLASE, Inc., was granted a loan from Pacific Mercantile Bank in the aggregate amount of $2.98 million, pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the CARES Act.  See Note 9 for additional information.

The PPP Loan, which was in the form of a Note dated April 13, 2020 issued by the Company, matures on April 13, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 1, 2020. The Note may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Funds from the PPP Loan may only be used for payroll costs, costs used to continue group health care benefits, mortgage payments, rent, utilities, and interest on other debt obligations incurred before February 15, 2020. The Company intends to use the entire PPP Loan amount for qualifying expenses. Under the terms of the PPP, certain amounts of the PPP Loan may be forgiven if they are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act. However, there can be no assurance that the PPP loan will be forgiven.

The application for these funds requires the Company to, in good faith, certify that the current economic uncertainty made the loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations of the Company. This certification further requires the Company to take into account our current business activity and our ability to access other sources of liquidity sufficient to support ongoing operations in a manner that is not significantly detrimental to the business. For further information on the PPP loan see Note 9 to these unaudited consolidated financial statements.


On May 22, 2020, the Company executed the standard loan documents required for securing a loan (the “EIDL Loan”) from the United States Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) under its Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance program in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business. The principal amount of the EIDL Loan is $150,000, with proceeds to be used for working capital purposes. Interest on the EIDL Loan accrues at the rate of 3.75% per annum and installment payments, including principal and interest, are due monthly beginning twelve months from the date of the EIDL Loan in the amount of $731.00. The balance of principal and interest is payable thirty years from the date of the promissory note. In connection with the EIDL Loan, the Company executed the EIDL Loan documents, which include the SBA Secured Disaster Loan Note, dated May 22, 2020, the Loan Authorization and Agreement, dated May 22, 2020, and the Security Agreement, dated May 22, 2020, each between the SBA and the Company. For further information on the EIDL loan see Note 9 to these unaudited consolidated financial statements.

Amendments to the SWK Credit Agreement

As of December 31, 2019, the Company was not in compliance with its debt covenants under its credit agreement dated November 9, 2018 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”) with SWK Funding, LLC (“SWK”). In March 2020, the Company entered into a Fourth Amendment dated as of March 25, 2020 to its Credit Agreement with SWK (the “Fourth Amendment”). Under the Fourth Amendment, the financial covenant is amended to require consolidated unencumbered liquid assets of no less than $3.0 million as of any date of determination. The Fourth Amendment also adjusted the Minimum Aggregate Revenue and EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) requirements. Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment to the Credit Agreement, SWK granted the Company a waiver of the Company’s noncompliance with certain financial covenants contained in the Credit Agreement through March 31, 2020.

On May 15, 2020, the Company entered into the Fifth Amendment to its Credit Agreement (the “Fifth Amendment”) with SWK. The Fifth Amendment amends the Credit Agreement by providing for minimum consolidated unencumbered liquid assets of $1.5 million prior to June 30, 2020 and $3.0 million on or after June 30, 2020; providing for a minimum aggregate revenue target of $41.0 million for the twelve month period ending June 30, 2020, a related waiver of such minimum revenue target in the event that the Company raises equity capital or issues subordinated debt of not less than $10.0 million on or prior to June 30, 2020, and quarterly revenue targets; and providing for a minimum EBITDA target of ($7.0 million) for the twelve month period ended June 30, 2020, a related waiver of such minimum EBIDTA target in the event that the Company raises equity capital or issues subordinated debt of not less than $10.0 million on or prior to June 30, 2020, and quarterly EBITDA targets. The Fifth Amendment contains representations, warranties, covenants, releases, and conditions customary for a credit agreement amendment of this type.


On June 8, 2020, SWK agreed to extend the deadline by which the Company is required to raise not less than $10.0 million in equity capital or subordinated debt to July 31, 2020 and agreed that the $6.9 million in proceeds from the offering completed on June 10, 2020 shall be counted toward the $10.0 million requirement. On July 22, 2020, the Company consummated the public offering of 18,000 units, each consisting of one share of Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Series F Convertible Preferred Stock”) and 2,500 warrants, each to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.40 per share, for which it raised gross proceeds of $18,000,000 before the payment of dealer-manager fees and associated offering expenses of approximately $2.2 million. In connection with the Fifth Amendment, on May 15, 2020 the Company entered into the Third Consolidated, Amended and Restated Warrant pursuant to which the Company issued additional warrants to SWK to purchase 63,779 shares of the Company’s Common Stock with a warrant price per share of $0.39198, and adjusted the warrant price per share with respect to 487,198 existing warrant shares previously issued to SWK to $0.39198. For further information on the additional SWK warrants see Note 9 to these unaudited consolidated financial statements. Based on the extension of the compliance deadline to July 31, 2020, the Company was in compliance with or received a waiver for debt covenants as of June 30, 2020.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Company’s ability to meet debt covenants in light of the short and long-term impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business, the Company is not forecasting compliance with its debt covenants in the next twelve months and has classified the Term Loan with SWK Funding, LLC (the “Term Loan”) as a short-term liability.

On August 12, 2020, the Company entered into the Sixth Amendment to the Credit Agreement (“Sixth Amendment”). Under the Sixth Amendment, the interest only period on the loan is extended to May 2022, the loan maturity date is extended to May 9, 2024, the financial covenants are adjusted, and a $0.7 million repayment of the principal amount was required upon execution of the agreement. See Note 15 for additional information.

Revolving Credit Facility

In April 2020, the Company borrowed $3.0 million in connection with its credit facility with Pacific Mercantile Bank under the PMB Loan (as defined below).

In May 2020 it was determined that the Company was not in compliance with the minimum unrestricted cash requirement under the PMB Loan’s existing covenants as of March 31, 2020. In July, 2020, the Company obtained a waiver for the covenant violation and entered into the First Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement (the “First Amendment”). Under the First Amendment to the PMB Loan, the Company obtained a forbearance waiving non-compliance through August 1, 2020 subject to certain conditions. In addition, the First Amendment to the PMB Loan the loan covenants were modified to include (a) on or before July 31, 2020, the Borrower has received net cash proceeds in the amount of at least $8.0 million from the issuance of equity securities and those funds are deposited into accounts maintained by PMB and (b) the Company maintains unrestricted cash at PMB in an aggregate amount of $1.5 million.

The Company repaid the $3.0 million and as of June 30, 2020, there was no balance outstanding under the PMB Loan.

Registered Direct Offering and Concurrent Private Placement

On June 10, 2020, the Company consummated a registered direct offering of 10,800,000 shares of its common stock (the “Shares”) to certain accredited institutional investors and a concurrent private placement of warrants to purchase 10,800,000 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.515 per share (the “June 2020 Warrants”). The June 2020 Warrants are exercisable commencing on the date of their issuance and will expire on the five- year anniversary of the issuance date.

The combined purchase price for one Share and one June 2020 Warrant in the offering was $0.64. The Company received aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $6.9 million in the offering, before deducting approximately $0.8 million in fees to the placement agents and other offering expenses.  For additional information regarding this transaction, see Note 4 to these unaudited consolidated financial statements.

Rights Offering

On July 22, 2020, the Company completed its previously announced rights offering. Pursuant to the Rights Offering, the Company sold an aggregate of 18,000 units consisting of an aggregate of 18,000 shares of Series F Convertible Preferred Stock and 45,000,000 warrants, with each warrant exercisable for one share of Common Stock, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $15.8 million, after deducting expenses relating to the Rights Offering, including dealer-manager fees and expenses, and excluding any proceeds received upon exercise of any warrants. For additional information regarding this transaction, see Note 15 to these unaudited consolidated financial statements.

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had working capital of approximately $1.8 million. The Company’s principal sources of liquidity as of June 30, 2020 consisted of approximately $5.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash and $4.1 million of accounts receivable, net, and approximately $1.0 million of availability under the PMB Loan.  

In order for the Company to continue operations beyond the next 12 months and be able to discharge its liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business, the Company must increase sales of its products, control or potentially reduce expenses and establish profitable operations in order to generate cash from operations or obtain additional funds when needed.

Although the Company consummated an equity raise of gross proceeds of $6.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, the Company may still have to raise additional capital in the future. Additional capital requirements may depend on many factors, including, among other things, the rate at which the Company’s business grows, the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions taken to contain it, demands for working capital, manufacturing capacity, and any acquisitions that the Company may pursue. From time to time, the Company could be required, or may otherwise attempt, to raise capital through either equity or debt offerings. The Company cannot provide assurance that it will be able to successfully enter into any such equity or debt financings in the future or that the required capital would be available on acceptable terms, if at all, or that any such financing activity would not be dilutive to its’ stockholders.
