Financial Commentary
While revenue was approximately $8,000 for second quarter 2018, income from operations was $393,000, reflecting a contra stock compensation expense of $1.2 million attributed to the revaluation of consultants' unvested restricted stock and stock options. This compared to no revenue and an operating loss of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2017. The company recorded a $1.4 million gain related to the change in fair value of derivative liability in second quarter 2018, versus a $527,000 charge for debt extinguishment in second quarter 2017. Net income was $1.8 million, or $0.01, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.02 in second quarter 2017. At June 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents were $1.4 million.

Today, the company filed Forms 10-Q and an S-1 with SEC.

Modified EBITDA

In addition to our GAAP results, we present Modified EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. However, Modified EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, income from operations or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. We define Modified EBITDA as net income (loss), plus interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, financing costs and changes in fair value of derivative liability.

Management considers our core operating performance to be that which our managers can affect in any particular period through their management of the resources that affect our underlying revenue and profit generating operations that period. Non-GAAP adjustments to our results prepared in accordance with GAAP are itemized below. Readers are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Modified EBITDA, readers should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Modified EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.
