LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Since inception, the Company has financed its operations from public and private sales of equity, the exercise of warrants and stock options, interest income on funds available for investment, government grants, investment tax credits, and revenues from distribution, licensing and contract services. Because the Company does not have net earnings from its operations, the Company's long-term liquidity depends on its ability to access the capital markets, which depends substantially on the Company's ongoing research and development programs.
