Description of Business

NexGel, Inc. (“NexGel” or the “Company”) manufactures high water content, electron beam cross-linked, aqueous polymer hydrogels, or gels, used for wound care, medical diagnostics, transdermal drug delivery and cosmetics. The Company specializes in custom gels by capitalizing on proprietary manufacturing technologies. NexGel has historically served as a contract manufacturer, supplying our gels to third parties who incorporate them into their own products and have recently began producing the Company’s own consumer products using our gels focused on proprietary branded products and white label opportunities. Both the Company’s gels and consumer products are manufactured using proprietary and non-proprietary mixing, coating and cross-linking technologies. Together, these technologies enable NexGel to produce gels that can satisfy rigid tolerance specifications with respect to a wide range of physical characteristics (e.g., thickness, water content, adherence, absorption, moisture vapor transmission rate (a measure of the passage of water vapor through a substance) and release rate) while maintaining product integrity. Additionally, the Company has the manufacturing ability to offer broad choices in the selection of liners onto which the gels are coated. Consequently, NexGel and our customers are able to determine tolerances in moisture vapor transmission rate and active ingredient release rates while personalizing color and texture.

NexGel was previously known as AquaMed Technologies, Inc. (“AquaMed”) before changing its name to NexGel, Inc. on November 14, 2019.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its consolidated wholly-owned subsidiary, NexGelRx, Inc.

Stock Split

On November 29, 2021, the Company effected a 1-for-35 reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, each issued and outstanding share of our common stock, and the per share exercise price of and number of shares of the Company’s common stock underlying our outstanding equity awards and warrants, was automatically proportionally adjusted based on the 1-for-35 Reverse Stock Split ratio. No fractional shares of common stock were issued in connection with the reverse stock split, and all such fractional interests were rounded up to the nearest whole number.

Except as otherwise provided herein, all share and per-share amounts of our common stock, equity awards and warrants, including the shares of common stock and warrants being offered hereby, have been adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split for all periods presented. The Reverse Stock Split did not alter the par value of the Company’s common stock, which remains at $0.001 per share, modify any voting rights or other terms of our common stock, or impact the amount of preferred stock the Company is authorized to issue.
