3. Concentrations of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, and trade accounts receivable. The Company also has concentrations of revenue with certain customers.
Cash and cash equivalents concentration—The Company holds cash balances at financial institutions that, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. The Company evaluates the creditworthiness of these financial institutions in determining the risk associated with these deposits. Calyxt has not experienced any losses on such accounts.
Trade accounts receivable concentration—At September 30, 2017, the Company had no trade accounts receivable. At December 31, 2016, one customer accounted for 100% of trade accounts receivable.
Revenue concentration—For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, three customers accounted individually for 12.6%, 19.5% and 63.0% and 64.2%, 8.0% and 25.8% of revenue, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, four customers accounted individually for 16.2%, 18.6%, 27.5% and 35.5% and 15.0%, 22.9%, 25.4% and 32.8% of revenue, respectively.
The entire disclosure for any concentrations existing at the date of the financial statements that make an entity vulnerable to a reasonably possible, near-term, severe impact. This disclosure informs financial statement users about the general nature of the risk associated with the concentration, and may indicate the percentage of concentration risk as of the balance sheet date.
