Notes to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements
For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

 
 
 
1.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Company Overview
 
Boston Therapeutics, Inc., headquartered in Manchester, NH, (OTC: BTHE) is a leader in the field of complex carbohydrate chemistry. The Company's initial product pipeline is focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic molecules for diabetes: BTI-320, a non-systemic, non-toxic, therapeutic compound designed to reduce post-meal glucose elevation; IPOXYN, a continuous intravenous drug for the prevention of necrosis and treatment of ischemia with an initial target indication of lower limb ischemia often associated with diabetes; and SUGARDOWN®, a non-systemic complex carbohydrate designed to moderate post-meal blood glucose.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has limited resources and operating history. As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has an accumulated deficit of approximately $11.2 million and $569,000 cash on hand as of September 30, 2014. We anticipate that our cash resources will be sufficient to fund our planned operations into December 2014. The Company raised $250,000 in gross proceeds in private placements during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.  The future of the Company is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations from the development of its new business opportunities.  Management is seeking additional capital through private placements and public offerings of its stock.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives.  Without such additional capital, the Company may be required to cease operations.

These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") for interim financial information and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. These condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements for its year ended December 31, 2013 included in its Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 14, 2014. In the opinion of management, the statements contain all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments necessary in order to present fairly the financial position as of September 30, 2014 and the results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013.

The year-end balance sheet data was derived from the audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The results disclosed in the statements of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Accounts Receivable
 
Accounts receivable is stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances.  Management establishes a reserve for doubtful accounts based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts.  Balances that remain outstanding after management has used reasonable collection efforts are written off against the allowance.  There were no allowances for doubtful accounts as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had one customer that accounted for 100% of its accounts receivable.  The Company believes there is minimal risk associated with this receivable.

1.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - continued
 
Inventory
 
Inventory consists of raw materials, work-in-process and finished goods of SUGARDOWN®. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or market, not in excess of net realizable value. The Company adjusts the carrying value of its inventory for excess and obsolete inventory. The Company continues to monitor the valuation of its inventory.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company generates revenues from sales of SUGARDOWN®. Revenue is recognized when there is persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists, the price is fixed and determinable, the product is shipped in accordance with the customers’ FOB shipping point terms and collectability is reasonably assured.  In practice, the Company has not experienced or granted significant returns of product. Shipping fees charged to customers are included in revenue and shipping costs are included in costs of sales.
 
As disclosed in Note 5 of the Notes to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements, Advance Pharmaceutical Company Ltd., a related party, accounted for 98% and 99% of the Company’s revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, Advance Pharmaceutical accounted for 97% of the Company’s revenue.
 
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
Stock–based compensation, including grants of employee and non-employee stock options and modifications to existing stock options, is recognized in the income statement based on the estimated fair value of the awards. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the fair value of options granted and recognizes the compensation cost of share-based awards on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award.
 
The determination of the fair value of share-based payment awards utilizing the Black-Scholes model is affected by the stock price and a number of assumptions, including expected volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and expected dividends. The Company has a limited history of market prices of the common stock as, and as such volatility is estimated using historical volatilities of similar public entities. The expected life of the awards is estimated based on the simplified method. The risk-free interest rate assumption is based on observed interest rates appropriate for the terms of our awards. The dividend yield assumption is based on history and expectation of paying no dividends. Forfeitures are estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized in the financial statements on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, based on awards that are ultimately expected to vest.
 
The Company grants stock options to non-employee consultants from time to time in exchange for services performed for the Company. Equity instruments granted to non-employees are subject to periodic revaluation over their vesting terms. In general, the options vest over the contractual period of the respective consulting arrangement and, therefore, the Company revalues the options periodically and records additional compensation expense related to these options over the remaining vesting period.
 
Loss per Share
 
Basic net loss per share is computed based on the net loss for the period divided by the weighted average actual shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed based on the net loss for the period divided by the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding during each period unless the effect of such common equivalent shares would be anti-dilutive. Common stock equivalents represent the dilutive effect of the assumed exercise of certain outstanding stock options using the treasury stock method.  The weighted average number of common shares for both the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 did not include 6,727,150 and 12,516,669 options and warrants, respectively, because of their anti-dilutive effect. The weighted average number of common shares for both the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 did not include 5,886,400 and 11,633,337 options and warrants, respectively, because of their anti-dilutive effect.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606).” ASU No 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in “Topic 605, Revenue Recognition” and requires entities to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 is effective retrospectively for annual or interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early application not permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its financial statements.

In August 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update (ASU) 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern. The new standard addresses management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is a substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  It requires management to perform interim and annual assessments of the Company ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related disclosures.  The standard will be effective for annual periods ending after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its financial statements.

2.             INVENTORIES
 
Inventories consist of material, labor and manufacturing overhead and are recorded at the lower of cost, using the weighted average cost method, or net realizable value.
 
The components of inventories at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, net of inventory reserves, were as follows:
 
   
2014
   
2013
 
 Raw materials
 
$
63,498
   
$
7,672
 
 Work in process

114,134
     
102,953
 
   
$
177,632
   
$
110,625
 
 
 
The Company periodically reviews quantities of inventory on hand and compares these amounts to expected usage of each particular product or product line. The Company records, as a charge to cost of sales, any amounts required to reduce the carrying value to net realizable value. 

3.           STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
 
The Company is authorized to issue up to 5,000,000 shares of its $0.001 par value preferred stock and up to 200,000,000 shares of its $0.001 par value common stock. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company amended its certificate of incorporation to increase the number of common shares from 100,000,000 to 200,000,000.  The amendment went into effect on September 7, 2013.
 
Common Stock
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company issued 99,000 shares of its common stock with a fair value of $74,160 in exchange for consulting services rendered during those periods in connection with three separate consulting agreements.

On March 31, 2014, the Company issued 833,340 shares of common stock at a price per share of $0.60 and issued warrants to purchase 416,670 additional shares of common stock with an exercise price of $1.00 per share for gross proceeds of $500,000.  The Company had received $250,000 of these proceeds during the fourth quarter of 2013 which was recorded as a stock subscription in accrued expenses and other current liabilities as of December 31, 2013.   The warrants are exercisable immediately and have a five year term.  The Company has evaluated these warrants for proper classification based on terms of the warrant agreement and has determined that equity classification is appropriate. The Company estimated the relative fair value of the warrant to be $125,251 using the Black Scholes model, which has been recorded as a component of permanent equity in additional paid in capital.

On June 24, 2011, the Company entered into a definitive Licensing and Manufacturing Agreement (the "Agreement") with Advance Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. ("Advance Pharmaceutical"), a Hong Kong-based privately-held company.  Under terms of the Agreement, the Company manufactures and supplies product in bulk for Advance Pharmaceutical.  Advance Pharmaceutical is responsible for the packaging, marketing and distribution of SUGARDOWN® in China, Hong Kong and Macau.    Advance Pharmaceutical, through a wholly owned subsidiary, has purchased an aggregate 1,799,800 shares of the Company’s common stock in conjunction with the Company’s private placement offerings during the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.   The shares were purchased on the same terms as the other participants acquiring shares in the respective offerings.   Conroy Chi-Heng Cheng is a director of Advance Pharmaceutical and joined the Company’s Board of Directors in December 2013.    Revenue generated pursuant to the Agreement for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 were $119,280 and $181,647, respectively.  Revenue generated for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 were $215,798 and $236,485, respectively.
 
On March 14, 2013, the Company issued 500,000 shares of its common stock at a price per share of $0.50 and issued a warrant to purchase 250,000 additional shares with an exercise price of $1.00 per share for gross proceeds of $250,000 to CJY Holdings Limited ("CJY"). The warrant is exercisable immediately and has a five year term. In July 2013 CJY Holdings Limited purchased 6,666,660 shares of the Company’s common stock and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 3,333,320 shares of the Company’s common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000 in the private placement conducted by the Company between July 2013 and September 2013.  The warrants are exercisable immediately over a five year term with an exercise price of $0.50 per share.  CJY is an entity that is controlled by Cheng Chi Him, a brother of our Director, Conroy Chi-Heng Cheng.

(formerly named Pro-Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) for which Dr. Platt previously served as CEO and Chairman.  Galectin sought to rescind or reform the Separation Agreement entered into with Dr. Platt upon his resignation from Galectin to remove a $1.0 million milestone payment which Dr. Platt asserted he was entitled to receive and to be repaid all separation benefits paid to Dr. Platt.  The Company initially capped the amount for which it would indemnify Dr. Platt at $150,000 and Dr. Platt agreed to reimburse the indemnification amounts paid by the Company should he prevail in the arbitration.  The Board decided to indemnify Dr. Platt after considering a number of factors, including the scope of the Company’s existing indemnification obligations to officers and directors and the potential impact of the arbitration on the Company.  On May 27, 2014, the Board agreed to increase the indemnification cap by $50,000 to cover outside expenses associated with the arbitration hearings.  As of December 31, 2013, the Company recorded legal expense associated with this indemnification of $119,401.  The remaining $30,599 was recorded as legal expense during the three months ended March 31, 2014.  The Company recorded an additional $32,697 related to the increased indemnification during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
The following discussion and analysis is based on, and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q .  This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements are often identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “estimate,” or “continue,” and similar expressions or variations. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results and the timing of certain events to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q represent our views as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Report on Form 10-Q.   
 
Overview

Boston Therapeutics, Inc., headquartered in Manchester, NH, (OTC: BTHE) is a leader in the field of complex carbohydrate chemistry. The Company's initial product pipeline is focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic molecules for diabetes:  BTI-320 (formerly PAZ320), is a non-systemic, non-toxic, therapeutic compound designed to reduce post-meal glucose elevation, and IPOXYN, an injectable anti-necrosis drug specifically designed to treat lower limb ischemia associated with diabetes.  In addition, the Company has completed development of SUGARDOWN®, a complex carbohydrate-based dietary supplement.  SUGARDOWN® is currently in the initial stage of market introduction, and in June 2011, we entered into an agreement with Advance Pharmaceutical to develop markets in Hong Kong, China and Macau.  We also have engaged with American Medical Supplies to develop markets in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.  We recently engaged Benchworks SD, LLC to exclusive rights to market SUGARDOWN® in North America.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has limited resources and operating history. We raised $250,000 in gross proceeds in private placements during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.  As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has an accumulated deficit of approximately $11.2 million and $569,000 cash on hand as of September 30, 2014. The future of the Company is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations from the development of its new business opportunities.

Management plans to seek additional capital through private placements and public offerings of its common stock. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives. Without such additional capital, the Company may be required to cease operations.

These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue operations.

The Company generated gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 of $28,106 as compared to gross margin of $68,550 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  The decrease is primarily related to a reduction in revenue, material and production cost charges and continued fixed fulfillment charges during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Research and development expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $1,200,321, an increase of $999,893 as compared to $200,428 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 The increase is primarily the result of expenses associated with the Phase IIb clinical trial for BTI-320 in patients with Type 2 diabetes conducted in the U.S. that concluded in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as well as an ongoing Phase IIb clinical trial in France.

Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $287,642, an increase of $36,406 as compared to $251,236 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase is primarily related to the engagement of a healthcare marketing company to market SUGARDOWN® and the hiring of employees to support our sales and marketing initiatives offset by a reduction in non-cash stock-based compensation.  The Company ended the healthcare marketing agreement during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $2,457,636, an increase of $553,628 as compared to $1,904,008 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Accounting, financial and legal professional fees increased approximately $295,000 primarily due to the indemnification of Dr. Platt’s legal costs associated with his arbitration as disclosed in Note 5 of the accompanying Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements, as well as the engagement of a finance professional to manage its accounting and financial reporting matters.  Payroll and payroll related expense increased approximately $214,000 due to salary increases, severance costs associated with the resignation of the Company’s former President, the institution of an employee medical benefit program and the hiring of a new employee.  Travel and entertainment expenses increased $75,000 primarily due to investor and industry conferences attended during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.  Consulting and professional services increased approximately $44,000 primarily due to our business development, public relations and investor relations activities.   These increases were offset by a reduction in non-cash, stock-based compensation of approximately $122,000 primarily related to future vesting of options per the terms of a terminated employee’s employment agreement during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
As of September 30, 2014
 
As of September 30, 2014, we had cash of $569,350 and accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities of $662,659. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company used $3,062,068 of cash in operations.  In October 2014, the Company received approximately $94,000 in payment for its accounts receivable at September 30, 2014.

We have incurred recurring operating losses since inception as we have worked to bring our SUGARDOWN® product to market and develop BTI-320 and IPOXYN.  We expect such operating losses will continue until such time that we receive substantial revenues from SUGARDOWN® or we complete the regulatory and clinical development of BTI-320 or IPOXYN.   We anticipate that our cash resources will be sufficient to fund our planned operations into December 2014.  We are currently seeking additional capital through private placements and public offerings of the Company’s stock. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives. Without such additional capital, the Company may be required to curtail or cease operations.
 

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to our investors.

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
 
As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide the information requested by this item, as provided by Regulation S-K Item 305(e). 
 
Item 4.  Controls and Procedures
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Pursuant to Rules 13a-15(b) and 15-d-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. The term “disclosure controls and procedures”, as defined under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based upon the evaluation of the disclosure controls and procedures at the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting during the fiscal period to which this report relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
 
The Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, do not expect that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud.  Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree or compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 Item 1.  Legal Proceedings
   
 
The Company may become involved in certain legal proceedings and claims which arise in the normal course of business.  On March 12, 2014, a complaint against the Company and the Company's CEO, David Platt, was filed in Middlesex Superior Court in Massachusetts by Eliezer Zomer. Mr. Zomer alleged that the Company and Dr. Platt had refused to deliver 400,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock that Mr. Zomer believes are owed to him, and seeks delivery of the shares and damages. In August 2014, the Middlesex Superior Court dismissed Mr. Zomer’s complaint for failure to proceed.
