Second Quarter Financial Results and Balance Sheet Highlights
The Company's cash and cash equivalents were $23,117,144 at June 30, 2015, compared with $17,391,601 at December 31, 2014.
Therefore, the Company's ability to continue as a going concern is reasonably assured due to its cash and cash equivalents on hand at June 30, 2015.
