The Company has incurred losses since its inception and has negative operating cash flows. Management has taken several actions to ensure that the Company will continue as a going concern. As described below, the Company has been able to raise substantial cash through equity offerings. In addition, as further described in these consolidated financial statements, the Company has begun to recognize revenue from new revenue streams. Management believes that these actions will enable the Company to continue as a going concern.
The Company completed a public offering in April and May 2020, which resulted in net proceeds of approximately $1,522,339, and $15,596,141, respectively. See Note 13 for a discussion on these public offerings. The Company believes that it has adequate cash balances to meet obligations coming due in the next twelve months and further intends to meet its capital needs from revenue generated from operations and by containing costs, entering into strategic alliances, as well as exploring other options, including the possibility of raising additional debt or equity capital as necessary. There is, however, no assurance the Company will be successful in meeting its capital requirements prior to becoming cash flow positive. The Company does not have any additional sources secured for future funding, and if it is unable to raise the necessary capital at the times it requires such funding, it may need to materially change its business plan, including delaying implementation of aspects of such business plan or curtailing or abandoning such business plan altogether.
With the global spread of the ongoing novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic during 2020, the Company implemented business continuity plans designed to address and mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its employees and business. Any quarantines, the timing and length of containment and eradication solutions, travel restrictions, absenteeism by infected workers, labor shortages or other disruptions to the Company's suppliers and contract manufacturers or customers would likely adversely impact the Company's sales and operating results and result in further project delays. In addition, the pandemic could result in an economic downturn that could affect the demand for the Company's products. Order lead times could be extended or delayed and pricing could increase. Some products or services may become unavailable if the regional or global spread were significant enough to prevent alternative sourcing. Accordingly, the Company is considering alternative product sourcing in the event that product supply becomes problematic. The Company expects this global pandemic to have an impact on the Company's revenue and results of operations, the size and duration of which the Company is currently unable to predict. In addition, to the extent the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic adversely affects the Company's business and results of operations, it may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks and uncertainties which the Company faces. The Company has been impacted by COVID-19 with supply chain distributions, absenteeism by infected workers and skilled labor shortages which has caused delays in projects and the Company could be further impacted if the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
