TANDEM DIABETES CARE, INC.

 

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation

 

The Company

 

Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the design, development and commercialization of products for people with insulin-dependent diabetes. The Company is incorporated in the state of Delaware. Unless the context requires otherwise, the terms the “Company” or “Tandem” refer to Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc.

 

The Company manufactures and sells insulin pump products in the United States that are designed to address large and differentiated needs of the insulin-dependent diabetes market. The Company’s pump products currently include:

 

 

the t:slim X2 Insulin Delivery System, or t:slim X2, the next-generation flagship product that is updatable and designed to display Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitoring, or CGM, sensor information directly on the pump Home Screen; and

 

 

the t:flex Insulin Delivery System, or t:flex, for people with greater insulin needs.

 

The Company began commercial sales of its first product, t:slim, in August 2012. During 2015, the Company commenced commercial sales of two additional insulin pumps: t:flex in May 2015 and t:slim G4 in September 2015. In October 2016, the Company commenced commercial sales of t:slim X2 and discontinued new sales of t:slim. In August 2017, the Company commenced commercial sales of t:slim X2 with Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM integration, or t:slim X2 with G5, and discontinued new sales of t:slim G4. The Company will continue to provide ongoing service and support to existing t:slim and t:slim G4 customers.  

 

In July 2016, the Company received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to begin offering the Tandem Device Updater, a Mac and PC-compatible tool for the remote update of Tandem insulin pump software.

 

In July 2016, the Company also announced and launched a Technology Upgrade Program that provided eligible t:slim and t:slim G4 customers a path to obtain t:slim X2, or, as of August 2017, t:slim X2 with G5. Participating customers had the right to exchange their original t:slim and t:slim G4 for a t:slim X2 or t:slim X2 with G5, under a variable pricing structure. The Technology Upgrade Program expired on September 30, 2017.

 

In September 2017, the Company commenced commercial sales of products using the t:lockTM Connector, or t:lock, which replaces the standard Luer-lok connector that historically joined an infusion set to the cartridge. t:lock incorporates a smaller inner cavity than the Luer-lok connector, which reduces the amount of insulin used in the process and reduces the time required to fill the infusion set tubing.

 

Effective December 31, 2016, the Company adopted FASB Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) Topic 205-40, Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern, which requires management to evaluate whether there are relevant conditions and events that, in the aggregate, raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date the financial statements are issued.

 

The financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 (the “Quarterly Report”) have been prepared on a basis that assumes the Company will continue as a going concern, and do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty. This basis of accounting contemplates the recovery of the Company’s assets and the satisfaction of the Company’s liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business and does not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects of the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company has incurred operating losses since its inception and, as reflected in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $466.2 million as of September 30, 2017, which reflects a net loss of $61.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $22.5 million at September 30, 2017, including $10.0 million of restricted cash as required by the Company’s term loan agreement (as amended, the “Term Loan Agreement”) with Capital Royalty Partners II, L.P. and its affiliate funds (“Capital Royalty Partners”). The Company used $54.5 million in cash from operations in the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The Company concluded that, at the date the financial statements in this Quarterly Report   were issued, it did not have sufficient cash to fund its operations for the next twelve months without additional financing and, therefore, there was substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements were issued.

 

4


On October 9, 2017, the Company effected a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The par value per share and the authorized number of shares of common stock and preferred stock were not adjusted as a result of the reverse stock split. All common stock share and per-share amounts for all periods presented in these condensed financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split. The number of authorized shares of common stock remains at 100 million shares.

 

The Company completed a registered public offering on October 17, 2017, or the October Financing, which resulted in gross proceeds to the Company of $16.2 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses (see Note 9 “Subsequent Events”). As part of the October Financing, the Company issued 4,630,000 shares of common stock, Series A warrants to purchase 4,630,000 shares of common stock and Series B warrants to purchase 4,630,000 shares of common stock, at a public offering price of $3.50 per share and accompanying warrants. The Series A warrants have an exercise price of $3.50 per share, are immediately exercisable, and will expire on the  5-year anniversary of the date of issuance. The Series B warrants have an exercise price of $3.50 per share, are immediately exercisable, and will expire on the 6-month anniversary of the date of issuance. Each series of warrants, if exercised by all holders in full, may result in additional gross proceeds of $16.2 million to the Company. As a result of the completion of the financing, the Company has satisfied the equity financing covenant in the Term Loan Agreement (see Note 6, “Term Loan Agreement”), although it remains subject to additional covenants.

 

The Company believes it will be necessary to raise additional funding. The Company intends to seek additional capital from public or private offerings of its capital stock or it may elect to borrow additional amounts under new debt financing arrangements or from other sources. If the Company issues equity or convertible debt securities to raise additional funding, its existing stockholders may experience dilution, it may incur significant financing costs, and the new equity or convertible debt securities may have rights, preferences and privileges senior to those of its existing stockholders. If the Company issues debt securities to raise additional funding, it would incur additional debt service obligations, it could become subject to additional restrictions limiting its ability to operate its business, and it may be required to further encumber its assets. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, meet its minimum liquidity requirements, satisfy the covenants under the Term Loan Agreement, and execute its business strategy is dependent on its ability to raise significant additional capital, of which there can be no assurance. If the Company cannot generate sufficient revenues from the sale of its products or secure additional financing on acceptable terms, it may be forced to significantly alter its business strategy, substantially curtail or modify its current operations, or cease operations altogether.  

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Company has prepared the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments which are of a normal and recurring nature, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information contained herein, have been included.

 

Interim financial results are not necessarily indicative of results anticipated for the full year or any other period(s). These unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and accompanying footnotes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (“Annual Report”), from which the balance sheet information herein was derived. These unaudited condensed financial statements exclude disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.

 

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

There have been no significant changes in our significant accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared with those disclosed in the Annual Report.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make informed estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in the Company’s financial statements and accompanying footnotes as of the date of the financial statements. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates and assumptions.

 

Restricted Cash

 

The Company recorded $10.0 million and $2.0 million of restricted cash as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, for the minimum cash balance requirement in connection with the Term Loan Agreement (see Note 6, “Term Loan Agreement”).

 

5


Accounts Receivable

 

The Company grants credit to various customers in the normal course of business. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for potential credit losses. Provisions are made based on historical experience, assessment of specific risk, specific review of outstanding invoices, and various additional assumptions and estimates that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Uncollectible accounts are written off against the allowance after appropriate collection efforts have been exhausted and when it is deemed that a balance is uncollectible.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and employee-related liabilities are reasonable estimates of their fair values because of the short-term nature of these assets and liabilities. Short-term investments are carried at fair value. Based on the borrowing rates currently available for loans with similar terms, the Company believes that the fair value of its long-term notes payable approximates its carrying value.

 

Certain trade-in rights offered by the Company pursuant to the Technology Upgrade Program to certain eligible customers, have been determined to be guarantees under applicable accounting guidance. The Company recorded a liability for the estimated fair value of the guarantees at their inception. The Program expired on September 30, 2017, at which time the remaining guarantee liabilities of $1.1 were recognized as sales. For further details regarding these guarantees, see the information included under the heading “Revenue Recognition” within this Note 2, as well as the information in Note 5, “Fair Value Measurements.”

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is generated primarily from sales in the United States of insulin pumps, disposable cartridges and infusion sets to individual customers and third-party distributors that resell the product to insulin-dependent diabetes customers. The Company is paid directly by customers who use the products, distributors and third-party insurance payors.

 

Revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred and title passed, the price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Trade-In Rights

 

The Company launched a Technology Upgrade Program in 2016, which expired September 30, 2017. The trade-in rights associated with the Program were accounted for as guarantees or rights to return based on specific factors and circumstances, including the period of time the trade-in rights were exercisable, the likelihood that the trade-in rights would be exercised, and the amount of the specified-price trade-in value.

 

The Company determined that trade-in rights for t:slim G4 Pump customers were generally guarantees. The Company accounted for the guarantees under applicable accounting standards, which require a guarantor to recognize, at the inception of the guarantees, a liability for the estimated fair value of the obligation undertaken in issuing the guarantees. Subsequently, the initial liability recognized for the guarantees was reduced as the Company was released from the risk under the guarantees, which was when the trade-in right was exercised or the right expired. The guarantees were accounted for as an element of a multiple element arrangement. The estimated fair value of the guarantees was based on various economic and customer behavioral assumptions, including the probability that a trade-in right would be exercised, the specified trade-in amount, the expected fair value of the used t:slim G4 Pump at trade-in and the expected sales price of a t:slim X2 Pump. Upon expiration of the Program at September 30, 2017, the remaining guarantee liabilities of $1.1 were recognized as sales compared to $1.2 million recorded as guarantee liabilities in other current liabilities on the accompanying balance sheets, as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

 

The Company determined that t:slim Pump trade-in rights were in-substance rights to return products. Such rights to return were accounted for pursuant to the right of return accounting guidance. As the Company did not have sufficient history to reasonably estimate returns associated with trade-in rights, all eligible t:slim Pump sales between July 2016 and October 2016, which is when the Company discontinued new shipments of t:slim, were recorded as deferred revenue until the trade-in right was exercised or the right expired. Despite expiration of the Program at September 30, 2017, the Company recorded $0.2 million for upgrades requested but not yet fulfilled compared to $3.2 million as a trade-in rights reserve in deferred revenue on the accompanying balance sheets, as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

Revenue Recognition for Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables

 

The Company considers the deliverables in its product offering as separate units of accounting and recognizes deliverables as revenue upon delivery only if (i) the deliverable has standalone value and (ii) the arrangement includes a general right of return relative to the delivered item(s) and delivery or performance of the undelivered item(s) is probable and substantially controlled by the Company. The Company allocates consideration to the separate units of accounting, unless the undelivered elements were deemed perfunctory and inconsequential. The amount of the determined guarantee fair value is allocated in full to the guarantee and the remaining allocable consideration is allocated to other separate units of accounting using the relative selling price method, in which allocation of consideration is based on vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) if available, third-party evidence (“TPE”), or if VSOE and TPE are not available, management’s best estimate of a standalone selling price (“ESP”) for the undelivered elements.

 

The Company offers a cloud-based data management application, t:connect, which is made available to customers upon purchase of any of its insulin pumps. In July 2016, the Company received clearance from the FDA to begin offering the Tandem Device Updater, a Mac and PC-compatible tool for the remote update of Tandem insulin pump software. Utilizing Tandem Device Updater, the Company may from time to time provide future unspecified software upgrades to the insulin pump’s essential software. The t:connect service and the embedded right included with qualifying insulin pumps to receive, on a when-and-if-available basis, future unspecified software upgrades relating to the product’s essential software are deemed undelivered elements at the time of the insulin pump sale. Because the Company has neither VSOE nor TPE for these deliverables, the allocation of revenue is based on the Company’s ESP. The Company establishes its ESP based on the estimated cost to provide such services, including consideration for a reasonable profit margin, which is then corroborated by comparable market data. The Company allocates fair value based on management’s ESP to these elements at the time of sale and recognizes the revenue over a four-year period, which is the hosting period for t:connect and the period that software upgrades are expected to be provided. At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, $1.8 million and $1.6 million, respectively, were recorded as deferred revenue for these undelivered elements. All other undelivered elements at the time of sale are deemed inconsequential or perfunctory.

 

Product Returns

 

The Company offers a 30-day right of return to its customers from the date of shipment of any of its insulin pumps, provided a physician’s confirmation of the medical reason for the return is received. Estimated allowances for sales returns are based on historical returned quantities as compared to pump shipments in those same periods of return. The return rate is then applied to the sales of the current period to establish a reserve at the end of the period. The return rates used in the reserve are adjusted for known or expected changes in the marketplace when appropriate. The allowance for product returns is recorded as a reduction of revenue and accounts receivable in the period in which the related sale is recorded. The amount recorded on the Company’s balance sheets for product return allowance was $0.2 million and $0.2 million at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. Actual product returns have not differed materially from estimated amounts reserved in the accompanying condensed financial statements.

 

Warranty Reserve

 

The Company generally provides a four-year warranty on its insulin pumps to end user customers and may replace any pumps that do not function in accordance with the product specifications. Insulin pumps returned to the Company may be refurbished and redeployed. Additionally, the Company offers a six-month warranty on disposable cartridges and infusion sets. Estimated warranty costs are recorded at the time of shipment. Warranty costs are estimated based on the current expected product replacement cost and expected replacement rates based on historical experience. The Company evaluates the reserve quarterly and makes adjustments when appropriate. Changes to the actual replacement rates or the expected product replacement cost could have a material impact on the Company’s warranty reserve.    

 

At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the warranty reserve was $4.8 million and $5.7 million, respectively. The following table provides a reconciliation of the change in product warranty liabilities from December 31, 2016 through September 30, 2017 (in thousands):

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the estimated fair value of the award, and the portion that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as compensation expense over the requisite service period on a straight-line basis. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options issued under the Company’s 2013 Stock Incentive Plan (“2013 Plan”) and shares issued under the Company’s 2013 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”) using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model on the date of grant. The Black-Scholes option-pricing model requires the use of subjective assumptions about a number of key variables, including stock price volatility, expected term, and risk-free interest rate. For awards that vest based on the achievement of service conditions, the Company recognizes expense using the straight-line method less estimated forfeitures based on historical experience.

 

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic net loss per share is calculated by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares that were outstanding for the period, without consideration for common stock equivalents.

 

Diluted net loss per share is calculated by dividing the net loss by the sum of the weighted average number of common shares that were outstanding for the period and the weighted-average number of dilutive common share equivalents outstanding for the period determined using the treasury stock method. Dilutive common share equivalents are comprised of warrants, options outstanding under the Company’s equity incentive plans, and shares subject to issuance pursuant to the ESPP. For all periods presented, there is no difference in the number of shares used to calculate basic and diluted shares outstanding due to the Company’s net loss position.

 

Potentially dilutive securities not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share (because inclusion would be anti-dilutive) are as follows (in thousands, in common stock equivalent shares):

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued new guidance that clarifies how entities should classify certain cash receipts and cash payments on the statement of cash flows. The guidance also clarifies how the predominance principle should be applied when cash receipts and cash payments have aspects of more than one class of cash flows. The guidance is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those years. The Company does not believe the adoption of the standard will have a material impact on the Company’s statement of cash flow.

 

In June 2016, FASB issued a new credit loss standard that changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. The standard is effective for public business entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those years. Early adoption is permitted for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those years. The Company is in the process of assessing the impact of the adoption of the standard on its financial statements.

In March 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASU 2016-09”), which is intended to simplify several areas of accounting for share-based payment arrangements. The amendments in this update cover such areas as the recognition of excess tax benefits and deficiencies, the classification of those excess benefits on the statement of cash flows, an accounting policy election for forfeitures, the amount an employer can withhold to cover income taxes and still qualify for equity classification and the classification of those taxes paid on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. The Company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2017. The Company had excess tax benefits for which a benefit could not previously be recognized of approximately $656,000 as of December 31, 2016. Upon adoption, the balance of the unrecognized excess tax benefits was reversed with the impact recorded to (accumulated deficit) retained earnings, including any change to the valuation allowance as a result of the adoption. Due to the full valuation allowance on the U.S. deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2016, there was no impact to the financial statements as a result of this adoption.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued final guidance for lease accounting. The new guidance requires lessees to put most leases on their balance sheet but to recognize expenses on their income statement in a manner similar to current accounting principles. The new guidance also eliminates the current real estate-specific provisions for all entities. The standard is effective for public companies for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those years. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. The Company is in the process of assessing the impact of the adoption of the standard on its financial statements.

 

In May 2014, FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard (“Revenue from Contracts with Customers Standard”) that will supersede existing revenue guidance under U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. The Revenue from Contracts with Customers Standard’s core principle is that a company will recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In doing so, companies will need to use more judgment and make more estimates than under current guidance. The Revenue from Contracts with Customers Standard will be effective for the Company beginning in its first quarter of 2018, and early adoption is permitted.

 

Subsequently, FASB issued the following standards related to Revenue from Contracts with Customers Standard: Principal versus Agent Considerations; Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing; and Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients (collectively, the “new revenue standards”). The new revenue standards may be applied retrospectively to each prior period presented (full retrospective method) or retrospectively with the cumulative effect recognized as of the date of adoption (the modified retrospective method). The Company currently expects to adopt the new revenue standards in the first quarter of 2018 utilizing the modified retrospective method. The Company currently believes that the adoption will not have a material impact on the recognition of revenues for the sale of its products through third-party distributors and insurance payors with whom it has contractual arrangements, which generally comprise approximately 99% of its sales. Additionally, the Company has given consideration to the accounting for warranty and commissions and does not anticipate a material change to its current method of expense recognition. As of September 30, 2017, the Company has not determined the full impact the adoption of the new revenue standard may have on its reported revenue or results of operations.

5. Fair Value Measurements

 

Authoritative guidance on fair value measurements defines fair value, establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures for each major asset and liability category measured at fair value on either a recurring or a nonrecurring basis. Fair value is intended to reflect an assumed exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the authoritative guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1:

 

Observable inputs such as unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

Level 2:

 

Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

 

 

 

Level 3:

 

Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities, which require the reporting entity to develop its own valuation techniques that require input assumptions.

 

The following table presents information about the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques utilized by the Company to determine such fair value (in thousands):

Generally, cash equivalents include money market funds and investments with a maturity of three months or less from the date of purchase. This asset is included as a component of cash and cash equivalents on the balance sheet, of which $10.0 million is classified as restricted cash – long-term at September 30, 2017.

 

(2)

The deferred compensation plan is directed by the Company and structured as a Rabbi Trust for the benefit of certain executives and non-employee directors. The investment assets of the Rabbi Trust are valued using quoted market prices multiplied by the number of shares held in each trust account. The related deferred compensation liability represents the fair value of the investment assets.

 

The Company’s Level 2 financial instruments are valued using market prices on less active markets with observable valuation inputs such as interest rates and yield curves. The Company obtains the fair value of Level 2 financial instruments from quoted market prices, calculated prices or quotes from third-party pricing services. The Company validates these prices through independent valuation testing and review of portfolio valuations provided by the Company’s investment managers. There were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 assets during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

The Company recorded $1.2 million as guarantee liabilities in other current liabilities on the accompanying condensed balance sheet at December 31, 2016. There were no guarantee liabilities at September 30, 2017. Guarantees were recorded as a reduction of revenue in the statement of operations and other comprehensive loss. Guarantees are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis, and therefore are not included in the tables above. Guarantees are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The estimated fair value of the guarantees is based on various economic and customer behavioral assumptions, including the probability that a trade-in right will be exercised, the specified trade-in amount, the expected fair value of the used t:slim G4 Pump at trade-in and the expected sales price of t:slim X2 (see Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Revenue Recognition”). Changes in the probability that a trade-in right will be exercised have the most significant impact on the estimate of the fair value of the liabilities.

 

In connection with the Term Loan Agreement, on March 7, 2017, the Company issued ten-year warrants to purchase 193,788 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $23.50 per share (the “Capital Royalty Warrant”). The Company used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to calculate the value of the Capital Royalty Warrant of approximately $3.3 million. The Capital Royalty Warrant was recorded as debt discount and stockholders’ equity, as the warrants met the definition of an equity instrument. The Black-Scholes option-pricing model requires the use of subjective assumptions about a number of key variables, including stock price volatility, expected term, and risk-free interest rate.

 

6. Term Loan Agreement

 

The Company had $82.3 million and $81.1 million of aggregate borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan Agreement, at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

 

Under the Term Loan Agreement, interest is payable at the Company’s option, (i) in cash at a rate of 11.5% per annum, or (ii) at a rate of 9.5% of the 11.5% per annum in cash and 2.0% of the 11.5% per annum (the “PIK Loan”) to be added to the principal of the loan and subject to accruing interest. Interest-only payments are due quarterly on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year of the interest-only payment period, which ends on December 31, 2019. The principal balance is due in full at the end of the term of the loan, which is March 31, 2020 (the “Maturity Date”). The Company had elected to pay interest in cash at a rate of 11.5% per annum through September 30, 2015. Beginning October 1, 2015, the Company elected to pay interest in cash at a rate of 9.5% per annum and for a rate of 2.0% per annum to be added to the principal of the loan. As a result, $2.3 million was added to the principal of the loan since October 1, 2015, which the Company refers to as PIK Loans.

 

11


The term loan is collateralized by all assets of the Company. The principal financial covenants require that the Company attain minimum annual revenues of $80.0 million in 2017 and $95.0 million each year thereafter until the Maturity Date.

 

Pursuant to Amendment No. 3 to Term Loan Agreement (the “Third Amendment”), the Company agreed to pay, on the earlier of (i) the Maturity Date, (ii) the date that the loan under the Term Loan Agreement becomes due, and (iii) the date on which the Company makes a voluntary pre-payment of the loan, a financing fee equal to 3.0% of the sum of (x) the aggregate amount drawn under the Third Amendment, which is $50.0 million, and (y) any PIK Loans issued in relation to the Third Amendment (collectively, the “Back End Financing Fee”).

 

The audit report of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm contained in the Annual Report included an explanatory paragraph that describes conditions that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. This explanatory paragraph constituted a potential event of default under the Term Loan Agreement. On March 7, 2017, the Company entered into Waiver and Amendment No. 4 to the Term Loan Agreement (the “Fourth Amendment”), which included a limited waiver of the potential event of default that could have resulted from the explanatory paragraph. In consideration for the waiver, the Company agreed to: (i) issue the Capital Royalty Warrant, (ii) increase its restricted cash balance from $2.0 million to $10.0 million, (iii) provide Capital Royalty Partners the same information it makes available to its board of directors, subject to limited exceptions, and (iv) not incur additional third party indebtedness secured solely by accounts receivable, inventory and cash. In addition, the Fourth Amendment includes a covenant requiring the Company to complete financings in which its gross proceeds from the sale of equity securities is at least $30.0 million, no later than January 15, 2018. Furthermore, the Company agreed to increase the Back End Financing Fee to 5.0% of the entire aggregate principal amount of borrowings outstanding, including total PIK Loans issued. The Back End Financing Fee is payable at maturity of the Company’s loans and on the principal amount of any loans for which it makes an optional prepayment, and may be payable in connection with certain asset sales or a change of control.

 

As of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, the Company had accrued $4.1 million and $1.5 million for the Back End Financing Fee in other long-term liabilities and as contra-debt in notes payable-long-term on the accompanying condensed balance sheets.

 

The Company evaluated execution of the Fourth Amendment as a modification for accounting purposes and concluded that it did not constitute a modification because the present value of the future cash flows under the Fourth Amendment did not exceed the present value of the future cash flows under the previous terms by more than 10%. The Back End Financing Fee, the value of the Capital Royalty Warrant, and the remaining balance of debt issuance costs and debt discount of the loan are amortized to interest expense over the remaining term of the Term Loan Agreement using the effective interest method.

 

7. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Public Offering

 

In the first quarter of 2017, the Company completed a public offering of 1,850,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $12.50 per share. The gross proceeds to the Company from the offering were $23.1 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company.  

 

At The Market (ATM) Program

 

In July 2017, the Company entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement implementing an ATM program for aggregate gross proceeds up to $15.0 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company sold 464,108 shares of common stock under the ATM program at prices ranging from $5.64 to $10.54.

8. Commitments and Contingencies

 

From time to time, the Company may be subject to legal proceedings, regulatory encounters or other matters arising in the ordinary course of business, including actions with respect to intellectual property, employment, product liability, and contractual matters. In connection with these matters, the Company assesses, on a regular basis, the probability and range of possible loss based on the developments in these matters. A liability is recorded in the financial statements if it is determined that it is probable that a loss has been incurred, and that the amount or range of the loss can be reasonably estimated. Because of the uncertainties related to the occurrence, amount, and range of loss on any pending actions, the Company is currently unable to predict their ultimate outcome, and, with respect to any pending litigation or claim where no liability has been accrued, to make a meaningful estimate of the reasonably possible loss or range of loss that could result from an unfavorable outcome. At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, there were no legal proceedings, regulatory encounters or other matters for which the negative outcome was considered probable or for which the amount or range of loss was estimable.

 

9. Subsequent Event

 

On October 9, 2017, the Company effected a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The par value per share and the authorized number of shares of common stock and preferred stock were not adjusted as a result of the reverse stock split. All common stock share and per-share amounts for all periods presented in these condensed financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split. The number of authorized shares of common stock remains at 100 million shares.

 

On October 17, 2017, the Company completed a registered public offering of 4,630,000 shares of its common stock, Series A warrants to purchase up to 4,630,000 shares of its common stock and Series B warrants to purchase up to 4,630,000 shares of its common stock, at a public offering price of $3.50 per share and accompanying warrants. The gross proceeds to the Company from the offering were approximately $16.2 million, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company. The Series A warrants have an exercise price of $3.50 per share, are immediately exercisable, and will expire on the 5-year anniversary of the date of issuance. The Series B warrants have an exercise price of $3.50 per share, are immediately exercisable, and will expire on the 6-month anniversary of the date of issuance. As a result of the completion of the financing, the Company has satisfied the equity financing covenant in the Term Loan Agreement, although it remains subject to additional covenants.

Overview

 

We are a medical device company with an innovative approach to the design, development and commercialization of products for people with insulin-dependent diabetes. We believe that our competitive advantage is rooted in our unique consumer-focused approach and proprietary technology platform. This allows us to deliver innovative hardware and software solutions to meet the various needs and preferences of people with diabetes and their healthcare providers. We manufacture and sell insulin pump products in the United States that are designed to address large and differentiated segments of the insulin-dependent diabetes market. Our insulin pump products include:

 

 

the t:slim X2 Insulin Delivery System, or t:slim X2, our next-generation flagship product that is updatable and designed to display Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitoring, or CGM, sensor information directly on the pump Home Screen; and

 

 

the t:flex Insulin Delivery System, or t:flex, for people with greater insulin needs.

 

We have shipped more than 60,000 insulin pumps since our initial launch in August 2012, of which nearly 56,000 pumps have been shipped within the four years ended September 30, 2017. For the past three consecutive years, our company has been ranked #1 by insulin pump users in the United States for customer support in an independent survey by dQ&A, a leading diabetes research firm.

 

We have successfully launched five insulin pump products, beginning with the commercialization of our first pump, the t:slim Insulin Delivery System, or t:slim, in August 2012. During 2015, we commenced commercial sales of two additional insulin pumps: t:flex and the t:slim G4 Insulin Delivery System, or t:slim G4, the first continuous glucose monitoring, or CGM, enabled pump with touchscreen simplicity. In October 2016, we commenced commercial sales of t:slim X2 and discontinued new sales of t:slim. In August 2017, we commenced commercial sales of t:slim X2 with Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM integration and discontinued new sales of t:slim G4.

Our insulin pumps are compatible with the Tandem Device Updater, a revolutionary new tool that allows pump users to update their pumps’ software quickly and easily from a personal computer. Remote updatability for insulin pump software is a unique feature not available in competitive pump offerings, meaning the Tandem Device Updater provides our customers access to new and enhanced features faster than the industry has been able to in the past. Its first cleared use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, was to update t:slim Pumps purchased before April 2015 to the latest software. In August 2017, we received FDA approval to permit t:slim X2 customers to update their pumps’ software to allow integration with the Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM system. We are currently offering this update free of charge to our 12,000 customers that purchased a t:slim X2 prior to us receiving FDA approval for G5 integration. As of September 30, 2017, approximately one third of these customers have elected to update their pump. Of the t:slim X2 Pump users who have updated their pump’s software, more than 85% indicated they were satisfied or extremely satisfied with the update process. In the future, the Tandem Device Updater has the potential to enable users to add other new features and functionality to their pumps, such as automated insulin delivery, or AID, algorithms, independent of the typical four-year insurance pump replacement cycle.  

 

In September 2017, we commenced commercial sales of products using the t:lockTM Connector, or t:lock, which replaces the standard Luer-lok connector that historically joined an infusion set to our cartridge. t:lock incorporates a smaller inner cavity than the Luer-lok connector, which reduces the amount of insulin used in the process and reduces the time required to fill the infusion set tubing.

 

Our innovative approach to product design and development is consumer-focused and based on our extensive market research, as we believe the user is the primary decision maker when purchasing an insulin pump. Our market research consists of interviews, focus groups and online surveys to understand what people with diabetes, their caregivers and healthcare providers are seeking in order to improve diabetes therapy management. We also apply the science of human factors to our design and development process, which seeks to optimize our devices, allowing users to successfully operate our devices in their intended environment.

 

We developed our products to provide the specific features that people with insulin-dependent diabetes seek in a next-generation insulin pump. Our proprietary pumping technology allows us to design the slimmest and smallest durable insulin pumps on the market, without sacrificing insulin capacity. Our insulin pump platform features our patented Micro-Delivery technology, and a miniaturized pumping mechanism that draws insulin from a flexible bag within the pump’s cartridge, rather than relying on a syringe and plunger mechanism. It also features an easy-to-navigate software architecture, a vivid color touchscreen and, with the t:slim X2, it also features an advanced Bluetooth radio capable of communicating with multiple compatible devices, such as a CGM sensor, blood glucose meter or mobile device applications. Our insulin pump platform has a micro-USB connection that supports a rechargeable battery and software updates through the Tandem Device Updater, as well as uploads to t:connect Diabetes Management Application, or t:connect. t:connect is our custom cloud-based data management application that provides customers and healthcare providers a fast, easy and visual way to display therapy management data from the pump and supported blood glucose meters. In April 2017, we launched the t:connect® HCP Portal, which is designed to streamline healthcare providers’ use of the original t:connect Application and improve office efficiency.

 

We have rapidly increased sales since our commercial launch by expanding our sales, clinical and marketing infrastructure, by developing, commercializing and marketing multiple differentiated products that utilize our technology platform and consumer-focused approach, and by providing strong customer support. In our research, approximately 86% of healthcare providers surveyed believe that providing great customer support is the most important company attribute. We believe that by demonstrating our product benefits and the shortcomings of existing insulin therapies, more people will choose our insulin pumps for their therapy needs, allowing us to further penetrate and expand the market. We also believe we are well positioned to address consumers’ needs and preferences with our current products and products under development and by offering customers a pathway to our future innovations through the Tandem Device Updater as they are approved by the FDA.

 

In July 2017, we announced plans to begin commercialization of t:slim X2 outside the United States in select geographies during 2018. Unlike our approach domestically, we currently plan to partner with distributors who will carry out the selling efforts, as well as the service and support of customers in geographies outside the United States.

 

Products under Development

 

Our products under development support our strategy of focusing on both consumer and clinical needs. We intend to leverage our consumer-focused approach and proprietary technology platform to continue to develop products that have the features and functionality that will allow us to target people in different segments of the insulin-dependent diabetes market. Our current pump products under development include:

t:slim X2 with PLGS – Our first generation AID system is expected to include a predictive low glucose suspend, or PLGS, algorithm that utilizes Dexcom G5 sensor values. During 2016, we completed a feasibility study of our PLGS algorithm. The data from this feasibility study was used in an IDE submission for a pivotal study, which was approved by the FDA in May 2017. We commenced a pivotal study for our t:slim X2 with PLGS in the third quarter of 2017 and anticipate that it will conclude by the end of 2017. Once reports from the clinical trial sites are finalized, we intend to use the results in a PMA submission with the FDA. Based on this timing, and subject to future FDA approval, our goal is to launch the product in the summer of 2018.

 

 

t:slim X2 with TypeZero – Our second generation AID system is expected to integrate the t:slim X2 pump with the treat-to-range technology that we licensed from TypeZero Technologies LLC, as well as Dexcom’s G6 sensor. With TypeZero’s technology, our product is intended to both increase and decrease basal insulin based on a person’s predicted blood glucose levels, as well as deliver automated correction boluses. In November 2016, we announced that we are working with Dexcom and TypeZero on the integration of our technologies into the National Institute of Health funded International Diabetes Closed Loop Trial, or IDCL Trial. We anticipate that a portion of the trial will utilize a t:slim X2 integrated with TypeZero’s inControl AID algorithms that is designed to automatically adjust a person’s insulin based on information from a Dexcom G6 sensor. We intend to use the results from this portion of the trial in a PMA submission with the FDA. Subject to both the timely completion of a successful IDCL Trial and future FDA approval, our goal is to launch this product in the first half of 2019.

 

 

t:sport Insulin Delivery System – This product is expected to be half the size of t:slim and is being designed for people who seek even greater discretion and flexibility with the use of their insulin pump. The timing of the commercialization of this product will be based on our prioritization of resources and ongoing dialogue with the FDA.

 

 

Mobile application - We are currently developing a mobile application that is being designed to utilize the capability of the Bluetooth radio to wirelessly upload pump data to t:connect, receive notification of pump alerts and alarms, integrate other health-related information from third party sources, and support future pump-control capabilities for our products under development. We intend to launch the first generation of our mobile application in 2018, with a subset of these features.

 

Pump Shipments

 

Since inception, we have derived nearly all of our sales from the shipment of insulin pumps and associated supplies in the United States. We consider the number of units shipped per quarter to be an important metric for managing our business. We have shipped more than 60,000 insulin pumps since our initial launch in August 2012, of which nearly 56,000 pumps have been shipped within the four years ended September 30, 2017. Pump shipments are broken down by product and by fiscal quarter as follows:
