Nature of the Organization and Business [Abstract]  



Pasithea Therapeutics Corp. (“Pasithea” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware on May 12, 2020 and completed an initial public offering (the “Initial Public Offering”) on September 17, 2021. The Company is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, research, and development of innovative treatments for central nervous system (CNS) disorders and other diseases. The Company is leveraging its expertise in the fields of neuroscience, translational medicine, and drug development to advance new molecular entities that target the pathophysiology underlying such diseases with the goal of bringing life-changing therapies to patients.


The Company’s therapeutic pipeline currently consists of four programs. The Company’s lead product candidate, PAS-004, is a next-generation macrocyclic mitogen-activated protein kinase, or MEK inhibitor that the Company believes may address the limitations and liabilities associated with existing drugs targeting a similar mechanism of action. The remaining three programs are in the discovery stage, which the Company believes address limitations in the treatment paradigm of the indications the Company plans to address with these programs, which are currently amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (“ALS”), multiple sclerosis (“MS”) and schizophrenia.


Through December 31, 2022, the Company operated a Clinics business that was focused on providing business support services to anti-depression clinics in the U.K. and in the United States. Its operations in the U.K. involved providing business support services to registered healthcare providers who assess patients and, if appropriate, administer intravenous infusions of ketamine. Its operations in the United States involved providing business support services to entities that furnish similar services to patients who personally pay for those services. Operations in the U.K. and the United States were conducted through partnerships with healthcare providers and the Company did not provide professional medical services or psychiatric assessments.


During the three months ended as of March 31, 2023, we discontinued our at-home services in New York, NY as well as our services in the U.K. During the three months ended as of June 30, 2023, we sold our assets associated with the Clinics operations in Los Angeles, CA and the lease associated with the related property was assumed by the buyer in the transaction. Accordingly, as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the previously discontinued operations of our Clinics segment have been disposed of.

Basis of Presentation


The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).


Emerging Growth Company


The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act, as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”), and it may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in its periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved. Further, Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies (that is, those that have not had a Securities Act registration statement declared effective or do not have a class of securities registered under the Exchange Act) are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The JOBS Act provides that a company can elect to opt out of the extended transition period and comply with the requirements that apply to non-emerging growth companies but any such election to opt out is irrevocable. The Company has elected not to opt out of such extended transition period which means that when a standard is issued or revised and it has different application dates for public or private companies, the Company, as an emerging growth company, can adopt the new or revised standard at the time private companies adopt the new or revised standard. This may make comparison of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements with another public company which is neither an emerging growth company nor an emerging growth company which has opted out of using the extended transition period difficult or impossible because of the potential differences in accounting standards used.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


As of June 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $26.6 million of cash and cash equivalents and working capital of approximately $25.8 million. The Company’s major sources of cash have been comprised of proceeds from various private offerings, the Initial Public Offering, and the prior exercise of warrants. The Company is dependent on obtaining additional working capital funding from the sale of equity and/or debt securities to continue to execute its development plans and continue operations. Based on the foregoing, management believes that the Company will have sufficient working capital to meet its needs through twelve months from the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements.
