Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Brickell Biotech, Inc. (the “Company” or “Brickell”) is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative and differentiated prescription therapeutics for the treatment of debilitating skin diseases. The Company’s pipeline consists of potential novel therapeutics for hyperhidrosis and other prevalent dermatological conditions. The Company’s pivotal Phase 3 clinical-stage product candidate, sofpironium bromide, is a proprietary new chemical entity that belongs to a class of medications called anticholinergics. The Company intends to develop sofpironium bromide as a potential best-in-class, self-administered, once daily, topical therapy for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis. The Company’s operations to date have been limited to business planning, raising capital, developing its pipeline assets (in particular sofpironium bromide), identifying product candidates, and other research and development.
On August 31, 2019, the Company, then known as Vical Incorporated (“Vical”), and Brickell Biotech, Inc., a then privately-held Delaware corporation that began activities in September 2009 (“Private Brickell”), completed a recapitalization in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, dated June 2, 2019, as further amended on August 20, 2019 and on August 30, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Vical, Victory Subsidiary, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vical (“Merger Sub”), and Private Brickell. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into Private Brickell, with Private Brickell surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vical (the “Merger”). Additionally, on August 31, 2019, immediately after the completion of the Merger, the Company changed its name from “Vical Incorporated” to “Brickell Biotech, Inc.” and Private Brickell changed its name from “Brickell Biotech, Inc.” to “Brickell Subsidiary, Inc.”
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes reflect the historical results of Private Brickell prior to the Merger and of the combined company following the Merger, and do not include the historical results of Vical prior to the completion of the Merger. These financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019, included in the Company’s Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 18, 2020.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred significant operating losses and has an accumulated deficit as a result of ongoing efforts to develop product candidates, including conducting preclinical and clinical trials and providing general and administrative support for these operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company had a net loss of $13.5 million and net cash used in operating activities of $15.3 million. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $20.2 million and an accumulated deficit of $98.5 million.
The Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2020, combined with the proceeds received from the subsequent sales of the Company’s common stock and warrants (see Note 9. “Subsequent Events”), are sufficient to fund its operations for at least the next 12 months from the issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company expects to continue to incur additional substantial losses in the foreseeable future as a result of the Company’s research and development activities. Additional funding will be required in the future to continue with the Company’s planned development and commercial related activities.
