Q Biomed generated no net sales in the quarter but successfully reduced its operating expenses to $442,510, significantly lower than the $1,165,568 reported in the February 28, 2022 quarter. This reduction was mainly due to a drop in general and administrative expenses from $1,096,300 in the previous year to $439,818 in the current period, and a decline in research and development expenses from $69,268 to $2,691.
The company’s cash balance stood at $23,173 as of February 28, 2023, and total liabilities amounted to $9,905,733. Q Biomed ended the quarter with a stockholders’ deficit of $6,441,051, primarily attributable to the net loss and accumulated dividend on convertible preferred stock of $104,800.
Funding and Revenue Generation
To address the net loss, management acknowledged the need to secure additional funding or generate revenue from their products within the next twelve months. While it makes efforts to achieve this, general market conditions and investor interest in the current business plans may affect the timing, terms, and conditions of such financing. If Q Biomed fails to generate sufficient funds, the company may have to further reduce its operations or even shut down.
