(a) Basis of consolidation

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, IPC Ltd., Intellipharmaceutics Corp. (“IPC Corp”), and Vasogen Corp.

References in these consolidated financial statements to share amounts, per share data, share prices, exercise prices and conversion rates have been adjusted to reflect the effect of the 1-for-10 reverse split which became effective on each of Nasdaq and TSX at the opening of the market on September 14, 2018.

In September 2018, the Company announced a one-for-ten share consolidation (the “reverse split”). At a special meeting of the Company’s shareholders held on August 15, 2018, the Company’s shareholders granted the Company’s Board of Directors discretionary authority to implement a consolidation of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on the basis of a consolidation ratio within a range from five (5) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share to fifteen (15) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share. The Board of Directors selected a share consolidation ratio of ten (10) pre-consolidation shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share. On September 12, 2018, the Company filed an amendment to the Company’s articles ("Articles of Amendment") to implement the one-for-10 reverse split. The Company’s common shares began trading on each of the Nasdaq and TSX on a post-split basis under the Company’s existing trade symbol "IPCI" at the opening of the market on September 14, 2018. In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), the change has been applied retroactively.

All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

(b) Use of estimates

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the year. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Areas where significant judgment is involved in making estimates are: the determination of the functional currency; the fair values of financial assets and liabilities; the determination of units of accounting for revenue recognition; the accrual of licensing and milestone revenue; and forecasting future cash flows for assessing the going concern assumption.
