|Accounting Policies [Abstract]|
|Nature of Operations||
Nature of Operations
The Company is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery, development, marketing and sale of innovative treatments and therapies, primarily for rare and orphan diseases. The Company’s lead product, Endari® (prescription grade L-glutamine oral powder), is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, to reduce the acute complications of sickle cell disease (“SCD”) in adult and pediatric patients five years of age and older.
Going concern— The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company incurred a net loss of $1.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and had a working capital deficit of $28.1 million. Management expects that the Company’s current liabilities, operating losses and expected capital needs, including the expected costs relating to the commercialization of Endari® in the Middle East North Africa region and elsewhere, will exceed its existing cash balances and cash expected to be generated from operations for the foreseeable future. In order to meet the Company’s current liabilities and future obligations, the Company will need to raise additional funds through related-party loans, equity and debt financings or licensing or other strategic agreements. The Company has no understanding or arrangement for any additional financing, and there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to complete any additional equity or debt financings on favorable terms, or at all, or enter into licensing or other strategic arrangements. Due to the uncertainty of the Company’s ability to meet its current operating and capital expenses, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for 12 months from the date of this filing. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.
|Factoring accounts receivable||
Factoring accounts receivable — Emmaus Medical, Inc., or Emmaus Medical, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Emmaus, is party to a purchase and sales agreement with Prestige Capital Finance, LLC or Prestige Capital, pursuant to which Emmaus Medical may offer and sell to Prestige Capital from time to time eligible accounts receivable in exchange for Prestige Capital’s down payment, or advance, to Emmaus Medical of 75% of the face amount of the accounts receivable, subject to a $7.5 million cap on advances at any time. The balance of the face amount of the accounts receivable will be reserved by Prestige Capital and paid to Emmaus Medical, less fees of Prestige Capital ranging from 2.25% to 7.25% of the face amount, as and when Prestige Capital collects the entire face amount of the accounts receivable. Emmaus Medical’s obligations to Prestige Capital under the
purchase and sale agreement are secured by a security interest in the accounts receivable and all or substantially all other assets of Emmaus Medical. In connection with the purchase and sale agreement, Emmaus has guaranteed Emmaus Medical’s obligations under the purchase and sale agreement. At March 31, 2022, accounts receivable included no factoring accounts receivable and there were no liabilities related to factoring reflected in other current liabilities. For three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, the Company incurred approximately $53,000, and $31,000, respectively, of factoring fees.
|Net loss per share||
Net loss per share — In accordance with Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 260, “Earnings per Share,” the basic loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per share is computed in a manner similar to basic net loss per common share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares issuable under securities exercisable for or convertible into common shares had been issued if the additional common shares would be dilutive. As of March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, the Company had outstanding potentially dilutive securities exercisable for or convertible into 23,261,199 shares and 24,515,738 shares, respectively, of common stock. No potentially dilutive securities were included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share since the potential dilutive securities were anti-dilutive for each of the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.
Disclosure of accounting policy for computing basic and diluted earnings or loss per share for each class of common stock and participating security. Addresses all significant policy factors, including any antidilutive items that have been excluded from the computation and takes into account stock dividends, splits and reverse splits that occur after the balance sheet date of the latest reporting period but before the issuance of the financial statements.
