INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The accompanying financial statements of Venaxis, Inc. (the "Company,"  "we," or "Venaxis") have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and changes in financial position at September 30, 2013 and for all periods presented have been made. Certain information and footnote data necessary for fair presentation of financial position and results of operations in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. It is therefore suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the summary of significant accounting policies and notes to financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. The results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2013 are not necessarily an indication of operating results for the full year.

Management's plans and basis of presentation:
 
The Company has experienced recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations.  At September 30, 2013, the Company had approximate balances of cash and liquid investments of $17,288,000, working capital of $15,446,000, stockholders' equity of $15,869,000 and an accumulated deficit of $83,252,000. To date, the Company has in large part relied on equity financing to fund its operations.  The Company expects to continue to incur losses from operations for the near-term and these losses could be significant as product development, clinical and regulatory activities, consulting expenses and other product development related expenses are incurred. In May 2013, the Company completed a public offering (Note 5) and refinanced its commercial bank mortgage obligation (Note 4). Following the May 2013 public offering, the Company believes that its current working capital position will be sufficient to meet its estimated cash needs for the remainder of 2013 and into 2014.  If the Company is not able to obtain additional capital when needed, the Company would potentially be required to reduce the scope of its research and development activities or cease operations. The Company is closely monitoring its cash balances, cash needs and expense levels. 
 
Management's strategic plans include the following:

-
continuing to advance development of the Company's principal product, APPY1;
-
continuing to explore prospective partnering or licensing opportunities with complementary opportunities and technologies; and
-
continuing to monitor and implement cost control initiatives to conserve cash.
