INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT

 

Provista Diagnostics, Inc.

Tel Aviv, Israel

 

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Provista Diagnostics, Inc., which comprise the balance sheets as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholder’s equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements.

 

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

 

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

 

Auditor’s Responsibility

 

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

 

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

 

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

 

Organization and Business Activity

 

Provista Diagnostics, Inc. ( “Provista” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada on November 12, 2009 and subsequently converted to a Delaware corporation on February 8, 2012. The Company operates a laboratory for purposes of test validation and commercialization activities related to the distribution and sampling of COVID-19 testing. The Company’s principal office location and laboratory is located in Alpharetta, Georgia.

 

Cash

 

From time to time, the Company maintains cash balances with financial institutions in excess of federally insured limits.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms. The carrying amount of accounts receivable may be reduced by an allowance that reflects management’s best estimate of the amounts that will not be collected. Management individually reviews all accounts receivable balances and based on assessment of current credit worthiness, estimates the portion, if any, of the balance that will not be collected. All accounts or portions thereof determined to be uncollectible are written off to the allowance for doubtful accounts. As management believes that the accounts are fully collectible and are therefore stated at net realizable value, management has not recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company’s revenue is principally derived from services provided under laboratory consulting and service agreements with its customers, and is recognized in accordance with, Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, “Revenues from Contracts with Customers” (“ASC Topic 606”). The Company has two agreements, a laboratory consulting agreement that contains a stand ready obligation, and a laboratory services agreement with a fee for service arrangement.

 

Under the laboratory consulting agreement, the Company is responsible for test validation and commercialization activities related to the distribution and sample processing of COVID-19 tests. The single performance obligation in this contract is a stand-ready obligation as the Company must provide a service of standing ready to provide services, as and when the customer decides. Revenues are recognized over time as the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits provided as the Company performs the services. The Company uses an output method (time-elapsed) to measure its progress and performance toward satisfaction of the performance obligation as time elapsed represents the work performed over the time period, which corresponds with, and thereby best depicts, the transfer of control to the client. Revenues are recognized using a straight-line measure of progress as the control of the services is provided to the customer ratably over the term of the contract. The Company typically invoices its customers on a monthly basis with payment terms that provide customers pay within 30 days of invoice. Amounts that have been invoiced are recorded in accounts receivable and in unearned revenue or revenue, depending on whether transfer of control to customers has occurred. During the year ended December 31, 2020, revenues related to this revenue stream amounted to $450,000.

NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

 

Under the fee for service agreement, the Company is responsible for running a polymerase chain reaction molecular test to detect COVID-19. Under the fee for service agreement, the Company has a single performance obligation that constitutes delivering the results of the COVID-19 test. The Company receives a fixed amount per test performed. The transaction price is fixed and recognized at a point in time when the test results are delivered. During the year ended December 31, 2020, revenues related to this revenue stream amounted to approximately $95,000.

 

The Company also derives revenues from markups on expense reimbursements. These amounts are recognized at a point in time when reimbursable expenses are paid by the Company. During the year ended December 31, 2020, revenues related to this revenue stream amounted to approximately $65,000.

 

Major Customers

 

Two customers, one of which during 2021 became a related party (Note 5), accounted for all revenue earned during the year ended December 31, 2020, as well as all accounts receivable outstanding as of December 31, 2020.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is recorded at cost. Expenditures for major betterments and additions are charged to the asset accounts, while replacements, maintenance and repairs which do not improve or extend the lives of the respective assets are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Depreciation

 

Depreciation of property and equipment is computed using straight-line methods over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which is five years.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under the liability method whereby deferred tax assets and liabilities are provided for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

 

Deferred tax assets, net of a valuation allowance, are recorded when management believes it is more likely than not that the tax benefits will be realized. Realization of the deferred tax assets is dependent upon generating sufficient taxable income in the future. The amount of deferred tax asset considered realizable could change in the near term if estimates of future taxable income are modified.

 

8

 

 

 

NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

 

The Company assesses its tax positions in accordance with “Accounting for Uncertainties in Income Taxes” as prescribed by the Accounting Standards Codification, which provides guidance for financial statement recognition and measurement of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return for open tax years (generally a period of three years from the later of each return’s due date or the date filed) that remain subject to examination by the Company’s major tax jurisdictions.

 

The Company assesses its tax positions and determines whether it has any material unrecognized liabilities for uncertain tax positions. The Company records these liabilities to the extent it deems them more likely than not to be incurred. Interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if any, would be classified as a component of income tax expense.

 

The Company believes that it does not have any significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition or measurement in the accompanying financial statements.

 

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs are charged to operations as incurred and are included in operating expenses. The amounts charged for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were approximately $14,000 and $4,000, respectively.

 

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

 

The preparation of financial statements, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the balance sheet dates and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the years presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

 

NOTE 2. ECONOMIC DEPENDENCY

 

 

All of the Company’s revenues are derived from agreements with two customers. The Company has incurred continuous losses, negative cash flows from operations and has equity of $247,458 as of December 31, 2020. In the absence of achieving profitable operations, the Company is dependent on continued financing from its parent company.

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Upon consummation of the Merger, each of the Company’s stockholders’ shares of common and preferred stock were cancelled and retired, with holders of preferred shares in receipt of a pro-rata portion of the Merger’s consideration, amounting to approximately $322,000, after payment of transaction costs, which was paid directly to the stockholders by Ascenda.

Lease Commitment

 

The Company leases laboratory facilities under a non-cancelable operating lease expiring in 2023. A portion of the rent is reimbursed by Ascenda (Note 5). The lease is guaranteed by an unrelated individual.

 

The approximate future minimum rentals under these leases for the years subsequent to December 31, 2020 are as follows:

 

2021   $ 122,000  
2022     127,000

Global Pandemic

 

In March 2020 the World Health Organization declared the novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures worldwide. Although, as of the date of issuance of these financial statements, this pandemic has not had a material adverse affect upon the Company, future potential impact, if any, can not be determined at this time.

 

12

 

 

 

NOTE 7. INCOME TAX PROVISION (BENEFIT)

 

 

The effective tax rates for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, differed from the maximum federal statutory tax rate principally due to state income tax benefits and changes in the deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

 

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. Based upon historical taxable losses and projections for future taxable income, management believes as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize the benefits of these deductible differences, and as a result, a valuation allowance has been recorded.

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities at December 31, 2020 and 2019 consisted of the following:

 

    2020     2019  
             
Deferred tax assets (liabilities):                
Net operating loss carryforwards   $ 3,626,000     $ 3,606,000  
R&D tax credit     1,825,000       1,825,000  
Charitable contributions     8,000       8,000  
Capitalized legal fees     20,000       21,000  
Depreciable assets     (19,000 )     (11,000 )
      5,460,000       5,449,000  
Less: valuation allowance     (5,460,000 )     (5,449,000 )
Deferred tax asset, net   $ -     $ -  


 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had approximately $54,258,000 in Federal net operating loss carryforwards, with $8,722,000 available for use to offset taxable income in future years due to IRC Section 382 limitations.
