Basis of Presentation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its controlled subsidiaries. Intercompany balances and transactions between the Company and its controlled subsidiaries have been eliminated.
The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The information included herein should be read in conjunction with the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2022 included herein was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the annual financial statements.
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect, in the opinion of the Company, all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature necessary for a fair statement of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented but are not necessarily indicative of the expected results for the full fiscal year or any future period.
Risks and Uncertainties
The Company’s operations are principally funded by available liquidity from cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. Management expects to continue to incur operating losses and that the Company will need to opportunistically raise additional capital to support the continued development and commercialization of the Aurora Driver. Management believes that cash on hand and short-term investments will be sufficient to meet its working capital and capital expenditure requirements for a period of at least twelve months from the date of these financial statements.
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist primarily of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. The Company primarily maintains its cash and cash equivalents at U.S. commercial banks, while its short-term investments primarily consist of U.S. Treasury securities. Cash and cash equivalents deposited with domestic commercial banks generally exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insurable limit, though the Company has not experienced any credit losses on its deposits.
The Company plans to rely on a single supplier, Continental Automotive Technologies GmbH, for the production, provision and full lifecycle support of its future generation of the Aurora Driver hardware system which will be integrated with OEM platform vehicles. In instances where the supplier fails to perform its obligations, the Company may be unable to find alternative suppliers to satisfactorily deliver its products, if at all.
The entire disclosure for the basis of presentation and significant accounting policies concepts. Basis of presentation describes the underlying basis used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS). Accounting policies describe all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
