NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

BioSig Technologies, Inc. was initially incorporated on February 24, 2009 under the laws of the State of Nevada and subsequently re-incorporated in the state of Delaware in 2011. The Company is principally devoted to improving the standard of care in electrophysiology with its initial product offering, the PURE EP™ System, designed for enhanced cardiac signal acquisition, digital signal processing, and analysis during ablation of cardiac arrhythmias. The Company has generated minimal revenue to date and consequently its operations are subject to all risks inherent in business enterprises in early commercialization stage.

 

On November 7, 2018, the Company formed a subsidiary under the laws of the State of Delaware originally under the name of NeuroClear Technologies, Inc. which was renamed to ViralClear Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“ViralClear”) in March 2020. The subsidiary was established to pursue additional applications of the PURE EP™ signal processing technology outside of cardiac electrophysiology, and subsequently in 2020, was repurposed to develop merimepodib, a broad-spectrum anti-viral agent that showed potential for the treatment of COVID-19. As of March 31, 2021, ViralClear had been realigned with its original objective of pursuing additional applications of the PURE EP™ signal processing technology outside of cardiac electrophysiology.

 

In 2019 and 2020, ViralClear sold an aggregate of 1,965,240 shares of its common stock to investors for net proceeds of $15.6 million and issued an aggregate of 894,869 shares of its common stock in connection with acquiring assets and with know-how agreements. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had a majority interest in ViralClear of 70.2%.  

 

On July 2, 2020, the Company formed an additional subsidiary, NeuroClear Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation.  

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of BioSig Technologies, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, NeuroClear Technologies, Inc. and its majority owned subsidiary, ViralClear Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as the “Company” or “BioSig”.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 has been derived from audited financial statements.

 

Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 filed with the Company’s Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 15, 2021.

 

COVID-19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic related to the rapidly spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which has led to a global health emergency.  The full public-health impact of the ongoing pandemic is currently indeterminable and rapidly evolving, and the related health crisis has adversely affected and may continue to adversely affect the global economy, resulting in delaying to our commercialization objectives of the PURE EP Systems into 2021.
