Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  



Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiary Tonix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Tonix Sub”), is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing small molecules and biologics to treat pain, addiction and psychiatric conditions. All drug product candidates are still in development. 


The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Tonix Sub, Krele LLC, Tonix Pharmaceuticals (Canada), Inc., Tonix Medicines, Inc., Tonix Pharma Holdings Limited and Tonix Pharma Limited (collectively hereafter referred to as the “Company” or “Tonix”). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.


Going Concern


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a basis which assumes that the Company will continue as a going concern and which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and negative cash flows from operating activities. At March 31, 2020, the Company had working capital of approximately $30.7 million. At March 31, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $224.3 million. The Company held cash and cash equivalents of approximately $30.7 million as of March 31, 2020.


The Company believes that its cash resources will be sufficient to meet its projected operating requirements through the end of 2020, but it will not have enough resources to meet its operating requirements for the one-year period from the date of filing of this Form 10-Q. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company continues to face significant challenges and uncertainties and, as a result, its available capital resources may be consumed more rapidly than currently expected due to changes it may make in its research and development spending plans. The Company has the ability to obtain additional funding through public or private financing or collaborative arrangements with strategic partners to increase the funds available to fund operations. However, the Company may not be able to raise capital with terms acceptable to the Company. Without additional funds, it may be forced to delay, scale back or eliminate some of our research and development activities, or other operations and potentially delay product development in an effort to provide sufficient funds to continue our operations. If any of these events occurs, our ability to achieve our development and commercialization goals would be adversely affected. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.


In December 2019, a novel strain of Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) emerged that has caused significant disruptions to the U.S. and global economy. The spread of COVID-19 has led to regional quarantines, business shutdowns, labor shortages, disruptions to supply chains, and overall economic instability. Any of these events may in the future have a material adverse effect on our business, operations and financial condition. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts our operations will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the outbreak, new information that may emerge concerning the severity of COVID-19 and the actions taken to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, among other things.
