NOTE A — SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
General
 
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2012 and for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 are unaudited. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Rule S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.
 
In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the nine month period ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated September 30, 2011 financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.
 
Business and Basis of Presentation
 
On September 16, 2002, Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada. Effective December 17, 2008, the Company reincorporated from the State of Nevada to the State of Delaware.  The Company is principally devoted to developing DNA embedded biotechnology security solutions in the United States and Europe. To date, the Company has generated minimum sales revenues from its services and products; it has incurred expenses and has sustained losses.  For the period from inception through June 30, 2012, the Company has accumulated losses of $167,239,859.
 
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Applied DNA Operations Management, Inc., APDN (B.V.I.) Inc. and Applied DNA Sciences Europe Limited. Significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
Estimates
 
The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures.  Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
Revenues are derived from research, development, qualification and production testing for certain commercial products. Revenue from fixed price testing contracts is generally recorded upon completion of the contracts, which are generally short-term, or upon completion of identifiable contractual tasks. At the time the Company enters into a contract that includes multiple tasks, the Company estimates the amount of actual labor and other costs that will be required to complete each task based on historical experience. Revenues are recognized which provide for a profit margin relative to the testing performed. Revenue relative to each task and from contracts which are time and materials based is recorded as effort is expended. Billings in excess of amounts earned are deferred. Any anticipated losses on contracts are charged to income when identified. To the extent management does not accurately forecast the level of effort required to complete a contract, or individual tasks within a contract, and the Company is unable to negotiate additional billings with a customer for cost over-runs, the Company may incur losses on individual contracts. All selling, general and administrative costs are treated as period costs and expensed as incurred.

NOTE A — SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
For revenue from product sales, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 605-10, Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605-10”). ASC 605-10 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts. Provisions for allowances and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded. The Company defers any revenue for which the product has not been delivered or is subject to refund until such time that the Company and the customer jointly determine that the product has been delivered or no refund will be required. At June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, the Company recorded $25,000 and $0 deferred revenue for the respective periods.
 
Cash Equivalents
 
For the purpose of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents.
 
Accounts Receivable
 
The Company provides an allowance for doubtful accounts equal to the estimated uncollectible amounts. The Company’s estimate is based on historical collection experience and a review of the current status of trade accounts receivable. It is reasonably possible that the Company’s estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts will change. At June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, the Company has deemed that no allowance for doubtful accounts was necessary.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 740-10, Income Taxes (“ASC 740-10”) which requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statement or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.
 
Property and Equipment
 
Property and equipment are stated at cost and depreciated over their estimated useful lives of 3 to 5 years using the straight line method.  At June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, property, plant and equipment consist of:

NOTE A — SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 360-10, Property, Plant and Equipment (“ASC 360-10”). ASC 360-10 requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used by the Company be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The Company evaluates its long lived assets for impairment annually or more often if events and circumstances warrant. Events relating to recoverability may include significant unfavorable changes in business conditions, recurring losses, or a forecasted inability to achieve break-even operating results over an extended period. The Company evaluates the recoverability of long-lived assets based upon forecasted undiscounted cash flows. Should impairment in value be indicated, the carrying value of intangible assets will be adjusted, based on estimates of future discounted cash flows resulting from the use and ultimate disposition of the asset.  ASC 360-10 also requires assets to be disposed of be reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.
 
Comprehensive Income (loss)
 
The Company does not have any items of comprehensive income (loss) in any of the periods presented.
 
Segment Information
 
The Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic Segment Reporting 280-10 (“ASC 280-10”). ASC 280-10 establishes standards for reporting information regarding operating segments in annual financial statements and requires selected information for those segments to be presented in interim financial reports issued to stockholders.  ASC 280-10 also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services and geographic areas. Operating segments are identified as components of an enterprise about which separate discrete financial information is available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker, or decision- making group, in making decisions how to allocate resources and assess performance.  The information disclosed herein, materially represents all of the financial information related to the Company’s single principal operating segment.
 
Net Loss Per Share
 
The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 260-10, Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260-10”) which specifies the computation, presentation and disclosure requirements of earnings per share information.  Basic earnings per share have been calculated based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Dilutive common stock equivalents consist of shares issuable upon conversion of convertible notes and the exercise of the Company’s stock options and warrants. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012, common stock equivalent shares are excluded from the computation of the diluted loss per share as their effect would be anti-dilutive.
 
Fully diluted shares outstanding were 646,110,663 and 641,715,691 for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Fully diluted shares outstanding were 496,504,218 and 495,370,910 for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.
 
Stock Based Compensation
 
The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 718-10, Compensation (“ASC 718-10”) which requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the income statement based on their fair values.  Pro-forma disclosure is no longer an alternative. This statement does not change the accounting guidance for share based payment transactions with parties other than employees provided in ASC 718-10.  Stock-based compensation expense recognized under ASC 718-10 for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were $1,564,311 and $459,967, respectively.

APPLIED DNA SCIENCES, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2012
(unaudited)
 
NOTE A — SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
As of June 30, 2012, 127,208,825 employee stock options were outstanding with 71,383,825 shares vested and exercisable.
 
Concentrations
 
Financial instruments and related items, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of cash, cash equivalents and trade receivables.  The Company places its cash and temporary cash investments with high credit quality institutions.  At times, such investments may be in excess of the FDIC insurance limit.
 
The Company’s revenues earned from sale of products and services for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012 included an aggregate of 59 % and 46% from two and one customer(s) of the Company’s total revenues, respectively.
 
Four and three customers accounted for 65% and 56% of the Company’s revenues earned from sale of products and services for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.
 
Three and four customers accounted for 74% and 77% of the Company’s total accounts receivable at June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.
 
Research and Development
 
The Company accounts for research and development costs in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 730-10, Research and Development (“ASC 730-10”).  Under ASC 730-10, all research and development costs must be charged to expense as incurred. Accordingly, internal research and development costs are expensed as incurred.  Third-party research and development costs are expensed when the contracted work has been performed or as milestone results have been achieved. Company-sponsored research and development costs related to both present and future products are expensed in the period incurred.  The Company incurred research and development expenses of $99,958 and $47,988 for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $274,528 and $161,645 for the nine month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
Advertising
 
The Company follows the policy of charging the costs of advertising to expense as incurred.  The Company charged to operations $13,244 and $68,148 as advertising costs for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2012 and $45,346 and $95,828 for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2011, respectively.
 
Intangible Assets
 
The Company amortizes its intangible assets using the straight-line method over their estimated period of benefit.  The estimated useful life for patents is five years while other intellectual property uses a seven year useful life. The Company periodically evaluates the recoverability of intangible assets and takes into account events or circumstances that warrant revised estimates of useful lives or that indicate that impairment exists.  All of the Company’s intangible assets are subject to amortization.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
In the first quarter of fiscal year 2008, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820-10”).  ASC 820-10 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and enhances fair value measurement disclosure. ASC 820-10 delayed, until the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, the effective date for ASC 820-10 for all non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). The adoption of ASC 820-10 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or operations.

NOTE A — SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
Effective October 1, 2008, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820-10”) and Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 825-10, Financial Instruments (“ASC 825-10”), which permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value. Neither of these statements had an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and short-term borrowings, as reflected in the balance sheets, approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
There were various updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or application to specific industries and are not expected to a have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
NOTE B - INTANGIBLE ASSETS

The Company has granted the note holders a security interest in all the Company’s assets and the assets of APDN (B.V.I.) Inc., the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary.
 
A “Subsequent Financing” is defined for purposes of this Note D as the issuance and sale by the Company or its affiliates during the term of the promissory note of securities that do not qualify as Qualified Financing.  A “Qualified Financing” is defined for purposes of this Note D as the issuance and sale by the Company or an affiliate thereof of equity or debt securities in a single transaction that results in gross proceeds of at least $10,000,000 (before transaction fees and expenses).

NOTE I - GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As shown in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements at June 30, 2012, the Company incurred a net loss for the nine month period ended June 30, 2012 of approximately $5.4 million and has an accumulated deficit of $167.2 million. These factors among others may indicate that the Company will be unable to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time.
 
The Company’s existence is dependent upon management’s ability to develop profitable operations. Management is devoting substantially all of its efforts to developing DNA embedded biotechnology security solutions in the United States and Europe and there can be no assurance that the Company’s efforts will be successful and  that management’s actions will result in profitable operations or the resolution of its liquidity problems. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
NOTE J - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
On August 10, 2012, the Company closed a private placement of its common stock. The Company issued and sold 8,265,683 shares of its common stock at a purchase price of $0.04336 per share to “accredited investors,” as defined in regulations promulgated under the Securities Act, for gross proceeds of $358,400. A registered broker dealer firm acted as the placement agent with respect to the private placement. In connection with the private placement, the Company paid placement agent commissions and discounts aggregating $25,088. In addition, the placement agent was issued a warrant with a five-year term to purchase 661,255 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.04336 per share.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto, included elsewhere within this report.  The Quarterly Report contains forward-looking statements, including statements using terminology such as “can”, “may”, “believe”, “designated to”, “will”, “expect”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “estimate”, “potential” or “continue”, or the negative thereof or other comparable terminology regarding beliefs, plans, expectations or intentions regarding the future. You should read statements that contain these words carefully because they:
 
discuss our future expectations;
contain projections of our future results of operations or of our financial condition; and
state other “forward-looking” information.
 
We believe it is important to communicate our expectations. However, forward looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and our actual results and the timing of certain events could differ materially from those discussed in forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including those set forth under “Risk Factors,” “Business” and elsewhere in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.  All forward-looking statements and risk factors included in this document are made as of the date hereof, based on information available to us as of the date thereof, and we assume no obligations to update any forward-looking statement or risk factor, unless we are required to do so by law.
 
Introduction
 
We are a provider of botanical-DNA based security and authentication solutions that can help protect products, brands and intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion.  SigNature® DNA, SmartDNA, Cashield™, DNANet™, BioMaterial™ Genotyping and digitalDNA™, our principal anti-counterfeiting product authentication and crime prevention solutions, can be used in numerous industries, including but not limited to cash-in-transit (transport and storage of banknotes), textiles and apparel, semiconductors, identity cards and other secure documents, pharmaceuticals, wine, and luxury consumer goods.
 
SigNature DNA . We use the DNA of plants to manufacture highly customized and encrypted botanical DNA markers, or SigNature DNA Markers, which we believe are virtually impossible to replicate. We have embedded SigNature DNA Markers into a range of our customers’ products, including various inks, dyes, textile treatments, thermal ribbon, thread, varnishes and adhesives. These items can then be tested for the presence of SigNature DNA Markers through an instant field detection or a forensic level authentication. Our SigNature DNA solution provides a secure, accurate and cost-effective means for users to incorporate our SigNature DNA Markers in, and then quickly and reliably authenticate and identify, a broad range of items, such as recovered banknotes, branded textiles and apparel products, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products, identity cards and other secure documents, digital media, artwork and collectibles and fine wine. Having the ability to reliably authenticate and identify counterfeit versions of such items enables companies and governments to detect, deter, interdict and prosecute counterfeiting enterprises and individuals.
 
SmartDNA.   SmartDNA is a unique and patented security system based on botanical DNA, a new and effective crime protection system for stores, warehouses, banks, pharmacies, ATMs and the protection of valuables. The system contains a water-based, non-toxic spray which may be triggered during a crime, marking the perpetrator and remaining on their person for weeks after the crime. Each SmartDNA product is designed to be unique to each store, warehouse or sting operation allowing the police and prosecutors to link criminals to the crimes.
 
Cashield . Cashield is a family of cash degradation inks that permanently stain banknotes stolen from cash-handling or ATM systems. Cashield extends our offering beyond our prior singular product, AzSure®, to a family of security inks that include Red, Violet, Green, Teal, Indigo, and the original AzSure® Blue. Current degradation dyes suffer from a critical technical weakness, as the dyes may be removed by the use of solvents. We initiated the development of Cashield in response to demand for a more effective carrier for our SigNature DNA markers.  Cashield has been certified for use in the EU by the Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d’Essais (LNE) and passed all 47 individual dye penetration and wash-out-resistance tests.  Additionally, a CViT study presented by the University of Leeds cited Cashield AzSure Blue ink as having improved performance versus staining inks from other suppliers. In this study, the AzSure blue ink was tested across a range of currencies, including British pounds, Euros, and U.S. dollars. The evaluation involved exposure to numerous industrial solvents. Final analysis of the results concluded that the AzSure blue ink was bound strongly in five seconds or less to a variety of banknotes, and could not be removed with any solvent.

DNANet . In 2010, we developed DNANet tactical DNA products for law enforcement, in the form of DNA-marked fixative sprays and liquids as well as transferable grease. These products, being marketed to global police forces were created to help link criminals to crimes. DNANet is a tactical forensic system providing unique DNA codes for covert operations that require absolute proof of authentication.
 
BioMaterial GenoTyping . Our BioMaterial GenoTyping solution refers to the development of genetic assays to distinguish between varieties or strains of biomaterials, such as cotton, wool, tobacco, fermented beverages, natural drugs and foods, that contain their own source DNA. We have developed two proprietary genetic tests (FiberTyping™ and PimaTyping™) to track American Pima cotton from the field to finished garments. These genetic assays provide the cotton industry with what we believe to be the first authentication tools that can be applied throughout the U.S. and worldwide cotton industry from cotton growers, mills, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and retailers through trade groups and government agencies.
 
digitalDNA .  We have launched a new product called digitalDNA, which is a DNA-secured form of the QR (“quick read”) code.  digitalDNA is a new security tool that utilizes the flexibility of mobile communications, the instant accessibility of secure, cloud-based data, and the absolute certainty of DNA to make item tracking and authentication fast, easy and definitive, while providing the opportunity to create a new and exciting customer interface.  The product uses forensic authentication of a botanical DNA marker, sequence-encrypted within a secure QR code, and physically included within the ink used to digitally print the code. The resulting pattern or “rune” can be scanned via an Apple-approved app with an iPhone to assure originality.  These mobile scans can be performed anywhere along the supply chain without limit.  Tracking information is fed into “tunable algorithms” that use pattern recognition to automatically identify supply-chain risks, for counterfeits or product diversion.  Rapid-reading reporters, associated with the DNA marker, are also embedded in the ink, and prevent the secure code from being digitally copied.
 
The digitalDNA platform is designed to meet compliance specifications defined by the PCI (Payment Card Industry) Security Standards Council, the new and strict standards developed for handling credit card transactions, and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), the stringent requirements for protecting personal health information.
 
We acquired rights to certain software and intellectual property pursuant to an agreement we entered into with DivineRune Inc., a secure cloud-computing specialist, in January this year.  DivineRune was issued a 3 year warrant to purchase one million shares of our common stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”) as compensation for a license to DivineRune’s patent portfolio.  We will also share revenues on any future sales of products generated as a result of this agreement.  We expect that the partnership will enhance and extend our core anti-counterfeiting, anti-diversion, and security systems into the digital track-and-trace sphere.  James A. Hayward, our President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Yacov Shamash, a member of our Board of Directors, were among the early investors in DivineRune where Mr. Sayan is the founder and CEO.  In addition, Dr. Hayward and Dr. Shamash both serve on the Board of Directors of Softheon, a document security company, where Mr. Sayan is the Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board.
 
Plan of Operations
 
General
 
To date, the substantial portion of our revenues has been generated from sales of our SigNature DNA and BioMaterial Genotyping, our principal anti-counterfeiting and product authentication solutions (“authentication services”).  We have continued to incur expenses in expanding our laboratory and office facilities and increasing our personnel to meet anticipated future demand.  We have limited sources of liquidity.  We expect to generate revenues  from sales of our SigNature Program, Cashield, DNANet, SmartDNA, BioMaterial Genotyping and digitalDNA.  We have developed or are currently attempting to develop business in the following target markets: cash-in-transit, semiconductor authentication, textile and apparel authentication, secure documents, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, fine wine, art and collectibles, and digital and recording media.  Our developments in the cash-in-transit, semiconductor authentication and textile and apparel authentication markets have contributed to the increase in our revenues. We intend to pursue both domestic and international sales opportunities in each of these vertical markets.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Financial Reporting Release No. 60, published by the SEC, recommends that all companies include a discussion of critical accounting policies used in the preparation of their financial statements. While all these significant accounting policies impact our financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

 
21

 
 
We believe that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause a material effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report.
 
The accounting policies identified as critical are as follows:
 
●           Revenue recognition;
●           Allowance for uncollectible receivables; and
●           Fair value of intangible assets.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
Revenues are derived from research, development, qualification and production testing for certain commercial products.
 
Revenue from fixed price testing contracts is generally recorded upon completion of the contracts, which are generally short-term, or upon completion of identifiable contractual tasks. At the time we enter into a contract that includes multiple tasks, we estimate the amount of actual labor and other costs that will be required to complete each task based on historical experience. Revenues are recognized which provide for a profit margin relative to the testing performed. Revenue relative to each task and from contracts which are time and materials based is recorded as effort is expended. Billings in excess of amounts earned are deferred. Any anticipated losses on contracts are charged to income when identified. To the extent management does not accurately forecast the level of effort required to complete a contract, or individual tasks within a contract, and we are unable to negotiate additional billings with a customer for cost over-runs, we may incur losses on individual contracts. All selling, general and administrative costs are treated as period costs and expensed as incurred.
 
For revenue from product sales, we recognize revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 605-10, Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605-10”). ASC 605-10 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded. We defer any revenue for which the product has not been delivered or is subject to refund until such time that we and the customer jointly determine that the product has been delivered or no refund will be required.
 
ASC 605-10 incorporates Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 605-25, Multiple-Element Arraignments (“ASC 605-25”). ASC 605-25 addresses accounting for arrangements that may involve the delivery or performance of multiple products, services and/or rights to use assets. The effect of implementing ASC05-25 on our financial position and results of operations are not significant.
 
Allowance for Uncollectible Receivables
 
We maintain an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of customers to make required payments. We use a combination of write-off history, aging analysis and any specific known troubled accounts in determining the allowance. If the financial condition of customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make payments, additional allowances could be required.
 
  Fair Value of Intangible Assets
 
We have adopted Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 360-10, Property, Plant and Equipment (“ASC 360-10”).  The Statement requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used by us be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Events relating to recoverability may include significant unfavorable changes in business conditions, recurring losses, or a forecasted inability to achieve break-even operating results over an extended period.
 
We evaluate the recoverability of long-lived assets based upon forecasted undiscounted cash flows. Should impairment in value be indicated, the carrying value of intangible assets will be adjusted, based on estimates of future discounted cash flows resulting from the use and ultimate disposition of the asset.  ASC 360-10 also requires assets to be disposed of be reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.
 
 
22

 
 
Use of Estimates
 
In preparing financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 and 2011
 
Revenues
 
For the three months ended June 30, 2012, we generated $528,574 in revenues from operations principally from the sales of authentication services. For the three months ended June 30, 2011, we generated $229,710 in revenues from operations. The increase in sales for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily caused by our continued sales efforts in expanding our product usage in our target markets.
 
Costs and Expenses
 
Selling, General and Administrative
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from $1,580,788 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 to $1,752,501 for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase of $171,713, or 11%, is primarily attributable to the cost of stock based compensation incurred in the current period compared to the same period last year.
 
Research and Development
 
Research and development expenses increased from $47,988 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 to $99,958 for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The increase of $51,970 is attributable to additional research and development activity needed with current operations.
 
Depreciation and Amortization
 
In the three months ended June 30, 2012, depreciation and amortization increased by $11,446 from $91,892 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 to $103,338 for the three months ended June 30, 2012.  The increase is attributable to acquisition of recent property and equipment.
 
Total Operating Expenses
 
Total operating expenses increased to $1,955,797 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from $1,720,668 for the three months ended June 30, 2011, or an increase of $235,129 primarily attributable to an increase in equity based compensation and in R&D expenditures.
 
Interest Expenses
 
Interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $661,615 to $2,422 from $664,037 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in interest expense was due to conversion of our debt and related reduction in our non cash amortization of debt discounts associated with our issued convertible notes.
 
Net Income (Loss)
 
Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased to $1,429,645 from a net loss of $2,154,995 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily attributable to factors described above.

Comparison of Results of Operations for the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2012 and 2011
 
Revenues
 
For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, we generated $1,563,880 in revenues from operations principally from the sales of authentication services. For the nine months ended June 30, 2011, we generated $687,970 in revenues from operations. The increase in sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 compared to the nine months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily caused by our continued sales efforts in expanding our product usage in our target markets.
 
Costs and Expenses
 
Selling, General and Administrative
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from $4,529,352 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 to $5,729,575 for the nine months ended June 30, 2012. The increase of $1,200,223, or 26%, is primarily attributable to the cost of stock based compensation and other operating costs incurred in the current period compared to the same period last year.
 
Research and Development
 
Research and development expenses increased from $161,645 for the nine  months ended June 30, 2011 to $274,528 for the nine  months ended June 30, 2012. The increase of $112,883 is attributable to additional research and development activity needed with current operations.
 
Depreciation and Amortization
 
In the nine months ended June 30, 2012, depreciation and amortization increased by $23,811 from $276,608 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 to $300,419 for the nine months ended June 30, 2012.  The increase is attributable to acquisition of recent property and equipment.
 
Total Operating Expenses
 
Total operating expenses increased to $6,304,522 for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 from $4,967,605 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011, or an increase of $1,336,917 primarily attributable to an increase in equity based compensation, other operating costs and in R&D expenditures.
 
Interest Expenses
 
Interest expense for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $1,175,335 to $642,790 from $1,818,125 for the nine  months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in interest expense was due to conversion of our debt and related reduction in our non cash amortization of debt discounts associated with our issued convertible notes.
 
Net Income (Loss)
 
Net loss for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 decreased to $5,383,432 from a net loss of $6,097,760 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 primarily attributable to factors described above.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Our liquidity needs consist of our working capital requirements, indebtedness payments and research and development expenditure funding.  Historically, we have financed our operations through the sale of equity and convertible debt as well as borrowings from various credit sources.  In fiscal 2010 and 2011 as well as in prior fiscal years, we have relied in part on cash infusions from our President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, James A. Hayward, in order to fund our operations.  During fiscal 2011, Dr. Hayward provided $750,000 in new loans. Dr. Hayward has not had to provide new loans during the nine months ended June 30, 2012.  In the absence of third party investment, curtailment of cash investments by Dr. Hayward could harm our cash availability and our ability to fund our operations, including our ability to meet our payroll and accounts payable obligations.

 
24

 
 
As of June 30, 2012, we had working capital of $1,152,670.  For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, we used net cash flow in operating activities of $2,968,008 consisting primarily of year to date loss of $5,383,432.  Non cash adjustments included $927,514 in depreciation and amortization charges, $1,622,549 for equity based compensation and $507,939 for settlement of accrued interest. Additionally, we had a net increase in operating assets of $278,427 and a net decrease in operating liabilities of $364,151.
 
Cash flows used in investing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 was $65,792 from the acquisition of equipment.  Cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,542,600 consisting of the proceeds from the sale of common stock.
 
We expect capital expenditures to be less than $200,000 in fiscal 2012.  Our primary investments will be in laboratory equipment to support prototyping and our authentication services.
 
Exploitation of potential revenue sources is expected to be financed primarily through the sale of equity securities and convertible debt, exercise of outstanding warrants, issuance of notes payable and other debt or a combination thereof, depending upon the transaction size, market conditions and other factors. Any issuances of preferred stock will be on such terms and conditions as are approved by our board of directors, may have rights, preferences and privileges senior to those of our Common Stock and may dilute the rights of holders of our Common Stock.
 
While we have raised capital to meet our working capital and financing needs in the past, additional financing is required within the next 12 months in order to meet our current and projected cash flow deficits from operations and development. We have sufficient funds to conduct our operations until approximately November 2012.  There can be no assurance that financing will be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all.
 
To the extent our revenues continue to increase over comparable year periods, our liquidity will be enhanced. However, we expect to require additional financing to sustain our growth and operations, including an increase in the number of employees.
 
By adjusting our operations and development to the level of capitalization, we believe we have sufficient capital resources to meet projected cash flow deficits. However, if during that period or thereafter, we are not successful in generating sufficient liquidity from operations or in raising sufficient capital resources on terms acceptable to us, this could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations liquidity and financial condition.
 
Our registered independent certified public accountants have stated in their report dated December 8, 2011, that we have incurred operating losses in the last two years, and that we are dependent upon management’s ability to develop profitable operations and raise additional capital. These factors among others may raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Recent Debt and Equity Financing Transactions
 
Fiscal 2010
 
During the year ended September 30, 2010, we issued and sold an aggregate principal amount of $2,545,000 in secured convertible promissory notes bearing interest at 10% per annum to “accredited investors,” as defined in regulations promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).  On January 7, 2012, all principal and interest accrued on such promissory notes has been converted pursuant to their terms into shares of our Common Stock at a conversion price equal to a 20% discount to the average volume, weighted average price of our Common Stock for the ten trading days prior to issuance.

 
25

 
 
Fiscal 2011
 
During the year ended September 30, 2011, we issued and sold an aggregate of $1,850,000 in principal amount of senior secured convertible notes bearing interest at a rate of 10% per annum to “accredited investors,” as defined in regulations promulgated under the Securities Act.  The notes are convertible, in whole or in part, at any time, at the option of the noteholders, into either (A) such number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing (i) the principal amount of each note, together with any and all accrued and unpaid interest and penalties, by (ii) a conversion price which is equal to a 20% discount to the average volume, weighted average price of our Common Stock for the ten trading days prior to issuance (the “Common Conversion Price”) or (B) securities issued in any Subsequent Financing (“Subsequent Financing Securities”) at a conversion price equal to 80% of the price per Subsequent Security paid by investors for Subsequent Securities in a Subsequent Financing (the “Subsequent Financing Price”).  The conversion prices of the notes range between $0.03088 and $0.05529.  A “Subsequent Financing” is the sale of our securities at any time after the date of issuance of the notes and prior to the earlier of (i) a Qualified Financing or (ii) the one-year anniversary of the issuance of the notes.  A noteholder may convert its notes in whole in connection with any one Subsequent Financing or in part in connection with one or more Subsequent Financings.  The notes shall be automatically converted upon the earlier of (I) the one year anniversary of their issuance and (II) the completion of a Qualified Financing at the election of each noteholder into either (A) shares of Common Stock at the Common Conversion Price, (B) Subsequent Securities at a conversion price equal to 80% of the Subsequent Financing Price, or (C) securities issued in a Qualified Financing (the “Qualified Financing Securities”) at a conversion price equal to 80% of the price per Qualified Financing Security paid by investors for the Qualified Financing Securities in the Qualified Financing.  A “Qualified Financing” is the sale of our securities in a single transaction resulting in gross proceeds of at least $10 million (before transaction fees and expenses).  The notes bear interest at the rate of 10% per annum and are due and payable in full on the one year anniversary of issuance of the notes.  Until the principal and accrued but unpaid interest under the notes are paid in full, or converted into, Subsequent Financing Securities or Qualified Financing Securities pursuant to their terms, our obligations under the notes will be secured by a lien on all our assets, including the assets of APDN (B.V.I.) Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary.
 
In addition, on July 15, 2011, we closed a private placement of Common Stock.  We issued and sold 105,263,158 shares of Common Stock at a purchase price of $0.0475 per share to accredited investors for gross proceeds of $5,000,000.
 
A registered broker dealer firm acted as our placement agent with respect to the private placement.  In connection with the private placement, we paid placement agent commissions and discounts aggregating $265,000.  In addition, the placement agent or its designees were issued warrants with a seven-year term to purchase an aggregate of 7,578,948 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $0.0475 per share.
 
Fiscal 2012 ( through June 30, 2012)
 
On June 21, 2012, we closed a private placement of our Common Stock.  We issued and sold 35,576,568 shares of Common Stock at a purchase price of $0.04336 per share (which is equal to a 20% discount to the average volume, weighted average price of the Common Stock for the ten trading days prior to the closing) to an “accredited investor,” as defined in regulations promulgated under the Securities Act, for gross proceeds of $1,542,600.
 
Subsequent Events
 
On August 10, 2012, the Company closed a private placement of its common stock. The Company issued and sold 8,265,683 shares of its common stock at a purchase price of $0.04336 per share to “accredited investors,” as defined in regulations promulgated under the Securities Act, for gross proceeds of $358,400. A registered broker dealer firm acted as the placement agent with respect to the private placement. In connection with the private placement, the Company paid placement agent commissions and discounts aggregating $25,088. In addition, the placement agent was issued a warrant with a five-year term to purchase 661,255 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.04336 per share.
 
We presently do not have any available credit, bank financing or other external sources of liquidity.  Due to our brief history and historical operating losses, our operations have not been a material source of liquidity.  We will need to obtain additional capital in order to expand operations and become profitable.  We intend to pursue the building of a re-seller network outside the United States, and if successful, the re-seller agreements would constitute a source of liquidity and capital over time.  In order to obtain capital, we may need to sell additional shares of Common Stock or borrow funds from private lenders.  There can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining additional funding and execution of re-seller agreements outside the Unites States.
 
We need to seek additional capital to sustain or expand our prototype and sample manufacturing, and sales and marketing activities, and to otherwise continue our business operations beyond November 2012.  We have no commitments for any future funding, and may not be able to obtain additional financing or grants on terms acceptable to us, if at all, in the future.  If we are unable to obtain additional capital this would restrict our ability to grow and may require us to curtail or discontinue our business operations.  Additionally, while a reduction in our business operations may prolong our ability to operate, that reduction would harm our ability to implement our business strategy.  If we can obtain any equity financing, it may involve substantial dilution to our then existing stockholders.

 
26

 
 
Additional investments are being sought, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to obtain such investments. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. However, the trading price of our Common Stock has made it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect significant amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Further, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our Common Stock. If additional financing is not available or is not available on acceptable terms, we will have to curtail our operations.
 
Substantially all of the real property used in our business is leased under operating lease agreements.
 
Product Research and Development
 
We anticipate spending approximately $500,000 for product research and development activities during the next twelve months.
 
Acquisition of Plant and Equipment and Other Assets
 
We do not anticipate the sale of any material property, plant or equipment during the next 12 months.  We do anticipate spending approximately $50,000 on the acquisition of leasehold improvements during the next 12 months.  To manage our expected growth, if any, over the next 2 to 3 years, we anticipate seeking additional space.
 
Number of Employees
 
We currently have 25 full-time employees and two part-time employees, including two in management, 17 in operations, 7 in sales and marketing and 1 in investor relations.  We expect to increase our staffing dedicated to sales, product prototyping, manufacturing of DNA markers and forensic authentication services.  Expenses related to travel, marketing, salaries, and general overhead will be increased as necessary to support our growth in revenue.  In order for us to attract and retain quality personnel, we anticipate we will have to offer competitive salaries to future employees.  We anticipate that it may become desirable to add additional full and/ or part time employees to discharge certain critical functions during the next 12 months.  This projected increase in personnel is dependent upon our ability to generate revenues and obtain sources of financing.  There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required or generating revenues sufficient to fund the projected increase in the number of employees.  As we continue to expand, we will incur additional costs for personnel.  As of June 23, 2012,the Company began working with Insperity Inc. to help us manage many of the back-end administrative human resources responsibilities of our Company.  This change is being done to provide Fortune 500 type benefits to our current employees, making the Company more attractive to new hires as well as saving the Company money by not having to build out an internal HR department at this point in time.  Insperity Inc. is a publicly traded company (NYSE: NSP) that supports businesses with payroll, medical benefits, 401k, online-training, and human resources services and support.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Inflation
 
The effect of inflation on our revenue and operating results was not significant.
 
Going Concern
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this filing have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles that contemplate our continuance as a going concern. Our auditors, in their report dated December 8, 2011, have expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our cash position may be inadequate to pay all of the costs associated with the testing, production and marketing of our products. Management intends to use borrowings and the sale of equity or convertible debt to mitigate the effects of its cash position, however no assurance can be given that debt or equity financing will be available. The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue existence.

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and are not required to provide the information required under this item.
 
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief  Financial Officer, of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act).  Based on the evaluation of these disclosure controls and procedures,  the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of June 30, 2012, our disclosure controls and procedures were  effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
During the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
Part II - Other Information
 
 
From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business. See Note H, “Commitments and Contingencies –Litigation,” to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a description of current legal proceedings as well as Item 8.01 of the Form 8-K dated June 21, 2012.
