ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Milestone Scientific Inc. and subsidiary (collectively “Milestone Scientific”, “our”, “us” or “we”) was incorporated in the state of Delaware in August 1989.
The unaudited consolidated financial statements of Milestone Scientific have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.
These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2014 included in Milestone Scientific’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.
On June 1, 2015, Milestone Scientific was listed on the NYSE MKT under the ticker symbol MLSS.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring entries) necessary to fairly present Milestone Scientific’s financial position as of June 30, 2015 and the results of its operations for the three and six months then ended.
The results reported for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations which may be expected for a full year.
Milestone Scientific has incurred significant operating losses since its inception. Milestone Scientific had negative cash flows from operating activities for the six months ending June 30, 2015 of $2,410,087 and a positive cash flow of $171,628 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. At June 30, 2015, Milestone Scientific had cash and cash equivalents including Treasury Bills of $6,997,609 and a positive working capital of $12,469,566 as compared to working capital of $13,147,257 at December 31, 2014. The working capital decreased by $677,691 as compared to December 31, 2014. The change in working capital is primarily due to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents offset by a decrease in current liabilities. Milestone Scientific’s management continues to examine all areas of the business to manage its cash flow. Milestone Scientific is actively pursuing the generation of positive cash flows from operating activities through an increase in revenue based upon management’s assessment of present contracts and current negotiations and reductions in operating expenses.
As of June 30, 2015, Milestone Scientific believes that it has sufficient cash reserves to meet all of its anticipated obligations for the next twelve months. Milestone Scientific will continue to manage its cash position while taking strategic steps to expand its business in the medical and dental, business sectors.
