Background, Organization and Going Concern Background, Organization and Going Concern
Soliton, Inc. (the “Company”) was organized under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 27, 2012. The Company operates in one segment as a medical device company organized to develop and commercialize products utilizing a proprietary Rapid Acoustic Pulse ("RAP") technology platform. The Company is a pre-revenue stage medical device company with a novel and proprietary platform technology licensed from The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center ("MD Anderson"). The Company's first product being developed will be for the removal of tattoos. In addition, the Company completed proof-of-concept clinical trials for the reduction of cellulite and the treatment of hypertrophic scars and has initiated a four-site pivotal trial for the reduction of cellulite. The Company is based in Houston, Texas. Upon completion of the development of its products and regulatory clearances to market such products, the Company anticipates revenue will be driven by the sale of its RAP console and disposable cartridges to dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other physician offices, as well as medi-spas under the supervision of a doctor.
Initial Public Offering
On February 19, 2019, the Company consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”). In the IPO, the Company sold a total of 2,172,591 shares of common stock at a purchase price of $5.00 per share for gross proceeds of $10,862,955 and net proceeds of $9,714,198. In connection with the closing of the IPO, the Company's convertible notes (and related accrued interest) of $11,784,987 were converted into 6,825,391 shares of the Company's common stock, accrued dividends of $4,773,480 were converted into 954,696 shares of the Company's common stock, and preferred stock, both Series A and Series B, were converted into 2,534,766 shares of the Company's common stock. In addition, 127,500 shares of unvested restricted stock grants were immediately vested upon the completion of the IPO. Total shares of common stock outstanding at the closing of the IPO amounted to 14,613,000. Upon the closing of the IPO, certain notes were to be automatically converted according to their terms into the Company’s common stock to the extent and provided that certain holders of these notes are not permitted to convert such notes to the extent that the holders or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s common stock after such conversion. Due to this 4.99% limitation, principal representing $47,781 of these notes remained outstanding and were converted into 273,034 shares of its common stock in August and September 2019 when the conversion did not result in the holders and any of its affiliates to own more than 4.99% of the Company's outstanding common shares.

The June Warrants included in the June Units are exercisable at a price of $16.00 per share commencing on the date of issuance and will expire on August 23, 2024, pursuant to which the resale of the shares of common stock underlying the June Warrants are registered.

Going Concern
The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and has not generated any revenues to date. As such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies. Since inception, the Company has incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities. The Company does not expect to generate positive cash flows from operating activities in the near future.
For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred net losses of $13,751,877 and $9,314,936, respectively, and had net cash flows used in operating activities of $10,605,073 and $4,599,677, respectively. At December 31, 2019, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $56,043,371, positive working capital of $9,309,454 and cash of $12,076,425. The Company does not expect to experience positive cash flows from operating activities in the near future, if at all. The Company anticipates incurring operating losses for the next several years as it completes the development of its products and seeks requested regulatory clearances to market such products. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis and do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. 
The Company’s cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash on hand of $10,081,593 as of February 11, 2020 is sufficient to fund its operations through the third quarter of 2020 but not beyond. The Company also believes it will need to raise additional capital in order to continue to execute its business plan, including obtaining additional regulatory clearance for its products currently under development and commercializing and generating revenues from products already cleared. There is no assurance that additional financing will be available when needed or that management will be able to obtain financing on terms acceptable to the Company. A failure to raise sufficient capital will adversely impact the Company’s ability to meet its financial obligations as they become due and payable and to achieve its intended business objectives. If the Company is unable to raise sufficient additional funds, it will have to scale back its operations.
