NOTE 1—DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
BIOLASE, Inc. (“BIOLASE” and, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”) is a leading provider of advanced laser systems for the dental industry. The Company develops, manufactures, markets, and sells laser systems that provide significant benefits for dental practitioners and their patients. The Company’s proprietary systems allow dentists, periodontists, endodontists, pediatric dentists, 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. Potential patient benefits include less pain, fewer shots, faster healing, decreased fear and anxiety, and fewer appointments. Potential practitioner benefits include improved patient care and the ability to perform a higher volume and wider variety of procedures and generate more patient referrals.
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, 2022 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. The unaudited 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 unaudited consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, included in BIOLASE’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 28, 2023 (the “2022 Form 10-K”).
Liquidity and Management’s Plans
The Company incurred losses from operations and used cash in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and for the years ended December 31, 2022, 2021, and 2020. The Company’s recurring losses, level of cash used in operations, and potential need for additional capital, along with uncertainties surrounding the Company’s ability to raise additional capital, 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.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company had working capital of approximately $13.0 million. The Company’s principal sources of liquidity as of March 31, 2023 consisted of approximately $6.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $5.2 million of net accounts receivable. As of December 31, 2022, the Company had working capital of approximately $11.2 million, $4.2 million in cash and cash equivalents and $5.8 million of net accounts receivable. The increase in cash and cash equivalents since December 31, 2022 was primarily due to $8.5 million net proceeds from the January 2023 public offering. This increase was partially offset by a net loss of $5.8 million and $0.6 million in capital expenditures.
On January 9, 2023, BIOLASE completed a public offering, pursuant to which BIOLASE agreed to issue, in a registered direct offering, 17,167,855 shares of BIOLASE common stock, par value $0.001 per share, and pre-funded warrants to purchase 11,403,571 shares of BIOLASE common stock (the "January 2023 Pre-Funded Warrants") with an exercise price of $0.01 per share. The combined purchase price for one share of common stock was determined to be $0.35, and the purchase price for one January 2023 Pre-Funded Warrant was determined to be $0.34. BIOLASE received aggregate gross proceeds from the transactions of approximately $9.9 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other transaction expenses paid by BIOLASE.
Additional capital requirements may depend on many factors, including, among other things, the rate at which the Company’s business grows, demands for working capital, manufacturing capacity, and any acquisitions that the Company may pursue. The Company expects that it will be required 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.
