Stockholders' Equity Note [Abstract]  



Common Stock


The Company is authorized to issue up to a total of 50,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share. Holders of common stock are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders. Holders of common stock do not have cumulative voting rights. Further, holders of common stock have no preemptive, conversion, redemption or subscription rights and there are no sinking fund provisions applicable to the Company’s common stock. Upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company, holders of common stock are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining after payment of all liabilities and the liquidation preferences of any outstanding shares of preferred stock. Subject to preferences that may be applicable to any outstanding shares of preferred stock, holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the Company’s board of directors, out of the Company’s assets which are legally available.


 Preferred Stock


The Company’s board of directors is authorized to issue up to 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more series and to fix the rights, preferences, privileges, qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, including dividend rights and rates, conversion rights, voting rights, terms of redemption, redemption prices, liquidation preferences and the number of shares constituting any series or the designation of such series, without any vote or action by the Company’s stockholders. Any preferred stock to be issued could rank prior to the Company’s common stock with respect to dividend rights and rights on liquidation. The Company’s board of directors, without stockholders approval, may issue preferred stock with voting and conversion rights which could adversely affect the voting power of holders of common stock and discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of the Company.


Shares issued for services


In February 2016, the Company issued 17,544 shares of its common stock valued at $37,500 ($2.14 per share) to an employee in exchange for $37,500 in wages payables due to the employee. The Company’s estimate of the fair value of the shares of $2.14 per share was based on the cash price per-share paid by outside investors in a private placement conducted between July 2014 and September 2014.


Shares issues for cash, net offering costs


In December 2016, the Company completed an underwritten initial public offering of 2,400,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $7.00 per share. In addition, the offering provided the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 360,000 shares of common stock from the Company at the same price of $7.00 per share. The underwriters exercised the foregoing option to purchase additional shares in full. The net proceeds to the Company from the offering were $16,957,334, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses payable by the Company. The offering was made pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-1, which was filed with the SEC on September 9, 2016 and declared effective on December 6, 2016.


In connection with the offering, the Company also issued warrants to the underwriters to purchase up to 115,000 shares of its common stock with an exercise price of $8.75 per share, which warrants expire five years from the date of issuance.
