|ARRAY BIOPHARMA INC filed this Form 10-K on 08/11/2017|
Our assessment of our future need for funding and our ability to continue to fund our operations through the sale of debt or equity securities or from upfront fees, milestone payments or other sources are forward-looking statements that are based on assumptions that may prove to be wrong and that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. We may be unable to obtain such funding when needed or on terms that are favorable to us. In addition, our actual future capital requirements could vary as a result of a number of factors. These risks, uncertainties and factors are described further below under the heading "Item 1A. Risk Factors" under Part I of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other reports we file with the SEC.
If we are unable to generate enough revenue from our existing or new collaborations or license agreements when needed or secure additional sources of funding and receive related full and timely collections of amounts due, it may be necessary to significantly reduce our current rate of spending through reductions in staff and delaying, scaling back or stopping certain research and development programs, including more costly late phase clinical trials on our wholly-owned programs. These events could prevent us from successfully executing our operating plan and, in the future, could raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. These events may also result in our inability to maintain the liquidity ratio required under our Loan Agreement with Silicon Valley Bank.
