information also assumes the extinguishment of the liability related to the Series D investors' purchase rights upon the closing of an IPO of the Company's Common Stock. See
Note 9 for further discussion of the Preferred Stock conversion features, as well as a discussion of the rights and preferences of the redeemable convertible Preferred Stock.
As noted above, the unaudited pro forma information reflects the automatic conversion, upon the closing of this initial public offering of the Company's Common Stock, of all outstanding
shares of Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock. The conversion has been adjusted in connection with the 1-for-15.87 reverse stock split of the Company's Common Stock effected on
October 6, 2014, for all series of Preferred Stock. For purposes of the unaudited pro forma information included within these financial statements, the conversion of the Preferred Stock has
been reflected assuming the conversion ratio, adjusted for the 1-for-15.87 reverse stock split, in effect as of each balance sheet date or on the date of the assumed conversion (upon the closing of
this initial public offering) for pro forma net loss per share considerations. See Note 9 for further discussion of the Preferred Stock conversion features, as well as a discussion of the
rights and preferences of the redeemable convertible preferred stock.
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise about which separate discrete information is available for evaluation by
the chief operating decision maker, or decision-making group, in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The Company and the Company's chief operating decision maker view the
Company's operations and manage its business in one operating segment, which is the business of developing and commercializing products for the treatment of renal and vascular disease. The Company
operates in only one geographic segment.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of 90 days or less from the purchase date to be cash
equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are held in depository and money market accounts and are reported at fair value.
The Company classifies its investments as available-for-sale and records such assets at estimated fair value in the balance sheets,
with unrealized gains and losses, if any, reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) within the statements of operations and comprehensive loss and as a separate component of
stockholders' (deficit) equity. The Company invests its excess cash balances primarily in government debt securities and money market funds with strong credit ratings and maturities of less than one
year. There have been no realized gains and losses for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013 and for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2014 (unaudited).
each balance sheet date, the Company assesses available-for-sale securities in an unrealized loss position to determine whether the unrealized loss is other-than-temporary. The
Company considers factors including: the significance of the decline in value compared to the cost basis, underlying factors contributing to a decline in the prices of securities in a single asset
class, the length of time the market value of the security has been less than its cost basis, the security's relative performance versus its peers, sector or asset class, expected market volatility
and the market and economy in general. When the Company determines that a decline in the fair value below its cost basis is other-than-temporary, the Company recognizes an impairment loss in the year
in which the other-than-temporary decline occurred. There have been no other-than-temporary declines in value of short-term investments for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013, the six
months ended June 30, 2013 and 2014 (unaudited), as it is more likely than not the Company will hold the securities until maturity or a recovery of the cost basis.
