NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1— BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Acorn Energy, Inc. and its subsidiaries, OmniMetrix, LLC and OMX Holdings, Inc. (collectively, “Acorn” or “the Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021.

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020 to conform to the current period’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statement presentation. There was no effect on total assets, equity and net loss. A reclassification of $2,400 from the parent company’s SG&A expense to the subsidiary’s SG&A expense was recorded to reclass the stock compensation expense of subsidiary employees.

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

 

Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) attributable to Acorn Energy, Inc. by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year, excluding treasury stock. Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding plus the dilutive potential of common shares which would result from the exercise of stock options and warrants. The dilutive effects of stock options and warrants are excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share if doing so would be antidilutive. The weighted average number of options and warrants that were excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share, as they had an antidilutive effect, was approximately 245,000 (which have a weighted average exercise price of $0.99) and approximately 2,987,000 (which have a weighted average exercise price of $1.36) for the three month periods ending March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

The following data represents the amounts used in computing EPS and the effect on net income (loss) and the weighted average number of shares of dilutive potential common stock (in thousands):

NOTE 2—RECENT AUTHORITATIVE GUIDANCE

 

Recently Issued Accounting Principles

 

Other than the pronouncement noted below, there have been no recent accounting pronouncements or changes in accounting pronouncements during the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, that are of material significance, or have potential material significance, to the Company.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (“ASC 326”), authoritative guidance amending how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that are not measured at fair value through net income. The guidance requires the application of a current expected credit loss model, which is a new impairment model based on expected losses. The new guidance is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

NOTE 3—LIQUIDITY

 

At March 31, 2021, the Company had negative working capital of approximately $71,000. The Company’s working capital includes approximately $1,974,000 of cash and deferred revenue of approximately $3,181,000. The deferred revenue does not require significant cash outlay for the revenue to be recognized. During the first three months of 2021, the Company’s OmniMetrix, LLC subsidiary provided approximately $342,000 from operations while the Company’s corporate headquarters used approximately $274,000 during the same period.

 

OmniMetrix is considered an essential business because it provides infrastructure support to both government and commercial sectors and across key industries. The Company has experienced minimal negative impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic to date. The Company has continued to realize new equipment sales (although not at the anticipated growth rate due to travel restrictions which have negatively impacted the sales closing timeline), has continued to collect its monthly recurring monitoring revenues and has retained its customer base. While the impacts of COVID-19 in the future are uncertain, the Company believes that due to the need for backup power and the desirability of remote monitoring services, it should be positioned for stable financial performance.

 

As of May 7, 2021, the Company had cash of approximately $1,968,000. The Company believes that such cash, plus the cash generated from operations, will provide sufficient liquidity to finance the operating activities of Acorn and OmniMetrix at their current level of operations for the foreseeable future and for the twelve months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in particular. The Company may, at some point, elect to obtain a new line of credit to fund additional investments in the business.

 

NOTE 4—LEASES

 

OmniMetrix leases office space and office equipment under operating lease agreements. The office lease expires on September 30, 2025. The office equipment lease was entered into in April 2019 and has a sixty-month term. Operating lease payments for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were approximately $30,000 and $28,000, respectively. The future minimum lease payments on non-cancellable operating leases as of March 31, 2021 using a discount rate of 4.5% are $518,000. Supplemental balance sheet information related to leases consisted of the following:

The table below reconciles the undiscounted future minimum lease payments under non-cancelable lease agreements having initial terms in excess of one year to the total operating lease liabilities recognized on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2021 (in thousands):

NOTE 5—DEBT

 

In March 2019, OmniMetrix reinstated its loan and security agreement which provided OmniMetrix with access to accounts receivable formula-based financing of the lesser of 75% of eligible receivables or $1,000,000. Debt incurred under this financing arrangement bore interest at the greater of 6% and prime plus 1.5% per year. In addition, OmniMetrix was to pay a monthly service charge of 0.75% of the average aggregate principal amount outstanding for the prior month, for an effective rate of interest on advances of 15% at February 28, 2021. OmniMetrix also agreed to continue to maintain a minimum loan balance of $150,000 in its line-of-credit with the lender for a minimum of two years beginning March 1, 2019. From time to time, the balance outstanding fell below $150,000 based on collections applied against the loan balance and the timing of loan draws. The monthly service charge and interest was calculated on the greater of the outstanding balance or $150,000. Interest expense for the period January 1, 2021 to February 28, 2021, when the line expired, was approximately $4,000 compared to approximately $7,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

OmniMetrix paid off the outstanding balance in February 2021 and decided not to renew this line of credit, which expired in accordance with its terms on February 28, 2021.

 

NOTE 6—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

On August 19, 2019, OmniMetrix entered into an agreement with a software development partner to create and license to OmniMetrix a new software platform and application. Pursuant to this agreement, OmniMetrix paid this partner equal monthly payments over the first seven months of the term of the agreement equal to $200,000 in the aggregate. In addition, OmniMetrix will pay the partner (i) a per-sensor monitoring fee for each sensor connected to the developed technology, or (ii) a percentage of any revenue received above a specified amount per sensor monitored per month in oil and gas applications only. Commencing on January 1, 2021, OmniMetrix pays the partner an annual licensing fee of $50,000 which is paid in quarterly increments of $12,500. The per-sensor monitoring fees have not yet commenced. The initial term of this agreement ends on August 19, 2022 but will automatically renew for one-year periods unless either party delivers a written notice of termination to the other party sixty days prior to the end of the respective term.

 

On April 28, 2020, the Company entered into a new agreement for data hosting services, replacing an expiring agreement with the same vendor, effective May 1, 2020. The agreement has a twelve-month term and the total payments under this agreement are approximately $148,000 in the aggregate. In January 2021, the Company elected to renew this agreement for an additional twelve-months under the same terms. The Company paid approximately $37,500 under this agreement in the three months ended March 31, 2021. The agreement will now expire on April 30, 2022.

 

On March 17, 2021, the Company entered into a master services agreement for the development of a new user interface for its customer data portal. The cost of this project is not expected to exceed approximately $85,000 and is expected to be completed by July 31, 2021. This master services agreement also covers strategic enhancements to our technology infrastructure at an estimated investment of approximately $21,000 that will be completed by year-end.

In addition to the above, the Company has approximately $600,000 in other contractual obligations related to software agreements, operating leases and contractual services, payable through 2026.

 

NOTE 7—EQUITY

 

(a) General

 

At March 31, 2021 the Company had issued and outstanding 39,687,589 shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share. Holders of outstanding common stock are entitled to receive dividends when, as and if declared by the Board and to share ratably in the assets of the Company legally available for distribution in the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company.

 

The Company is not authorized to issue preferred stock. Accordingly, no preferred stock is issued or outstanding.

 

(b) Summary Employee Option Information

 

The Company’s stock option plans provide for the grant to officers, directors and employees of options to purchase shares of common stock. The purchase price may be paid in cash or, if the option is “in-the-money” at the end of the option term, it is automatically exercised “net”. In a net exercise of an option, the Company does not require a payment of the exercise price of the option from the optionee, but reduces the number of shares of common stock issued upon the exercise of the option by the smallest number of whole shares that has an aggregate fair market value equal to or in excess of the aggregate exercise price for the option shares covered by the option exercised. Each option is exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock. Most options expire within five to ten years from the date of the grant, and generally vest over three-year period from the date of the grant.

 

At March 31, 2021, 1,652,394 options were available for grant under the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Incentive Plan and no options were available for grant under the 2006 Stock Option Plan for Non-Employee Directors. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, 30,000 options were issued to directors and 35,000 options were issued to the Company’s CEO. In the three months ended March 31, 2021, there were no grants to non-employees. The fair value of the options issued was approximately $19,000.

 

No options were exercised in the three months ended March 31, 2021. The intrinsic value of options outstanding and of options exercisable at March 31, 2021 was approximately $197,000 and $102,000, respectively.

 

The Company utilized the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate fair value, utilizing the following assumptions for the respective years (all in weighted averages):

NOTE 8— SEGMENT REPORTING

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company operates in two reportable operating segments, both of which are performed through the Company’s OmniMetrix subsidiary:

 

  The PG (Power Generation) segment provides wireless remote monitoring and control systems and services for critical assets as well as Internet of Things applications. The PG segment includes OmniMetrix’s monitoring device for industrial air compressors and dryers, and a new line of annunciators.
     
  The CP (Cathodic Protection) segment provides remote monitoring of cathodic protection systems on gas pipelines for gas utilities and pipeline companies.

 

The Company’s reportable segments are strategic business units, offering different products and services, and are managed separately as each business requires different technology and marketing strategies.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

This Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” relating to the Company which represent the Company’s current expectations or beliefs including, but not limited to, statements concerning the Company’s operations, performance, financial condition and growth. For this purpose, any statements contained in this Form 10-Q that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as “may”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “could”, “estimate” or “continue” or the negative or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements by their nature involve substantial risks and uncertainties, such as credit losses, dependence on management and key personnel, variability of quarterly results, and the ability of the Company to continue its growth strategy and the Company’s competition, certain of which are beyond the Company’s control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, or any of the other risks set out under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s 10-K report for the year ended December 31, 2020 occur, actual outcomes and results could differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements.

 

Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement or statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors, nor can it assess the impact of each such factor on the business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

BACKLOG

 

As of March 31, 2021, our backlog of work to be completed (primarily deferred revenue) at our OmniMetrix subsidiary totaled approximately $4.5 million.

 

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

 

On January 1, 2021, 30,000 options in the aggregate were issued to directors with an exercise price of $0.37 and that vest in equal increments on January 1, 2021, April 1, 2021, July 1, 2021 and October 1, 2021, valued at $7,400 in the aggregate.

We paid off the outstanding balance of approximately $8,000 under the OmniMetrix loan and security agreement on February 26, 2021 and elected not to renew this line of credit, which expired in accordance with its terms on February 28, 2021.

 

On April 28, 2020, we entered into a new agreement for data hosting services, replacing an expiring agreement with the same vendor, effective May 1, 2020. The agreement has a twelve-month term and the total payments under this agreement are approximately $148,000 in the aggregate. This agreement was set to expire on April 28, 2021. In January 2021, we elected to renew this agreement for an additional twelve-month term. The agreement will now expire on April 30, 2022.

 

On March 17, 2021, we entered into a master services agreement for the development of a new user interface for our customer data portal. The cost of this project is not expected to exceed $85,000 and is expected to be completed by July 31, 2021. This master services agreement also covers strategic enhancements to our technology infrastructure at an estimated investment of approximately $21,000 that will be completed by year-end.

 

On May 10, 2021, the monthly consulting fee for our Chief Financial Officer, Tracy S. Clifford, who also serves as Chief Operating Officer of our OmniMetrix subsidiary, was increased from $16,500 to $17,500, effective June 1, 2021.

OVERVIEW AND TREND INFORMATION

 

Acorn Energy, Inc. (“Acorn” or “the Company”) is a holding company focused on technology driven solutions for energy infrastructure asset management. We provide the following services and products through our OmniMetrix, LLC (“OmniMetrix”) subsidiary:

 

  Power Generation (“PG”) monitoring. OmniMetrix’s PG segment provides wireless remote monitoring and control systems and services for critical assets as well as Internet of Things applications. The PG segment includes our monitoring device for industrial air compressors and dryers, and a new line of annunciators.
     
  Cathodic Protection (“CP”) monitoring. OmniMetrix’s CP segment provides remote monitoring of cathodic protection systems on gas pipelines for gas utilities and pipeline companies.

 

Each of our PG and CP activities represents a reportable segment. The following analysis should be read together with the segment information provided in Note 8 to the interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this quarterly report.

 

OmniMetrix

 

OmniMetrix LLC is a Georgia limited liability company based in Buford, Georgia that develops and markets wireless remote monitoring and control systems and services for multiple markets in the Internet of Things (“IoT”) ecosystem: critical assets (including stand-by power generators, pumps, pumpjacks, light towers, turbines, compressors, as well as other industrial equipment) as well as cathodic protection for the pipeline industry (gas utilities and pipeline companies). Acorn owns 99% of OmniMetrix with 1% owned by the former CEO of OmniMetrix.

Following the emergence of machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT applications whereby companies aggregate multiple sensors and monitors into a simplified dashboard for customers, OmniMetrix believes it plays a key role in this new economic ecosystem. In addition, OmniMetrix sees a rapidly growing need for backup power infrastructure to secure critical military, government, and private sector assets against emergency events including terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and cybersecurity threats. As residential and industrial standby generators, turbines, compressors, pumps, pumpjacks, light towers and other industrial equipment are part of the critical infrastructure increasingly becoming monitored in IoT applications, and given that OmniMetrix monitors all major brands of critical equipment, OmniMetrix believes it is well-positioned as a competitive participant in this new market.

 

Sales of OmniMetrix monitoring systems include the sale of equipment and of monitoring services. Revenue (and related costs) associated with sale of equipment are recorded to deferred revenue (and deferred charges) upon shipment for PG and CP monitoring units. Revenue and related costs with respect to the sale of equipment are recognized over the estimated life of the units which are currently estimated to be three years. Revenues from the prepayment of monitoring fees (generally paid twelve months in advance) are initially recorded as deferred revenue upon receipt of payment from the customer and then amortized to revenue over the monitoring service period.

 

OmniMetrix Line of Credit

 

In March 2019, OmniMetrix reinstated its loan and security agreement which provided OmniMetrix with access to accounts receivable formula-based financing of the lesser of 75% of eligible receivables or $1 million. Debt incurred under this financing arrangement bore interest at the greater of 6% and prime plus 1.5% per year. In addition, OmniMetrix was to pay a monthly service charge of 0.75% of the average aggregate principal amount outstanding for the prior month, for an effective rate of interest on advances of 15%. OmniMetrix also agreed to maintain a minimum loan balance of $150,000 in its line-of-credit with the lender for a minimum of two years beginning March 1, 2019. The monthly service charge and interest was calculated on the greater of the outstanding balance or $150,000. From time to time, the balance outstanding could fall below $150,000 based on collections applied against the loan balance and the timing of loan draws.

 

OmniMetrix had an outstanding balance of approximately $149,000 at December 31, 2020, pursuant to the loan and security agreement. We repaid the outstanding balance in February 2021 and elected not to renew this line of credit, which expired in accordance with its terms on February 28, 2021.

Revenue. Revenue increased by approximately $367,000, or 27%, from approximately $1,338,000 in the first quarter of 2020 to approximately $1,705,000 in the first quarter of 2021. OmniMetrix’s increased revenue during the quarter was primarily attributable to increased hardware and accessories sales, which increased approximately $254,000, or 57%, from approximately $443,000 in the first quarter of 2020 to approximately $697,000 in the first quarter of 2021. The increase in hardware revenue was due to an increase in the sale of custom TG Pro units that are designed to large customer specifications and monitored by the customer and thus the revenue is not deferred, an increase in the sale of unit accessories for which the revenue is not deferred, and an increase in Hero-2 revenue from units sold. Monitoring revenue increased by approximately $113,000, or 13%, from approximately $895,000 in the first quarter of 2020 to approximately $1,008,000 in the first quarter of 2021. The increase in monitoring revenue is due to an increase in the number of installed billable connections.

 

As discussed above, OmniMetrix has two reportable segments, PG and CP. Of the approximately $1,705,000 in revenue recognized in the three months ended March 31, 2021, approximately $1,458,000 was generated by PG activities and approximately $247,000 was generated by CP activities. This represents an increase in revenue from PG activities of approximately $349,000, or 31%, from approximately $1,109,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2020, and an increase in revenue from CP activities of approximately $18,000, or 8%, from approximately $229,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Gross Profit. Gross profit during the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $1,210,000 reflecting a gross margin of 71% on revenue compared with a gross profit during the three months ended March 31, 2020 of $922,000 reflecting a gross margin of 69% on revenue. The increased gross profit in 2021 was due to an increase in sales to commercial and industrial customers over residential customers, an increase in accessory sales and an increase in monitoring revenue. Gross margin on hardware revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was 49% compared to 39% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Gross margin on monitoring revenue remained strong at 86% during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to 84% during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Selling, general and administrative expense. SG&A expense in the first three months of 2021 reflected a decrease of approximately $35,000, or 3%, as compared to the first three months of 2020. OmniMetrix’s SG&A expense decreased approximately $55,000, or 7%, from approximately $820,000 in the first three months of 2020 to approximately $765,000 in the first three months of 2021. This decrease was due to a decrease in travel and trade show expenses. Now that companies are reopening for sales calls and air travel is beginning to return to pre-COVID levels, these trade show and travel expenses will increase in future quarters. Corporate SG&A expense increased approximately $20,000, or 10%, from approximately $221,000 in the first three months of 2020 to approximately $241,000 in the first three months of 2021. This increase was due to increases in stock compensation expense and audit and tax fees, offset by a decrease in travel expenses.

 

Net income (loss) attributable to Acorn Energy. We recognized net income attributable to Acorn shareholders of approximately $20,000 in the first three months of 2021 compared to a net loss attributable to Acorn shareholders of approximately $283,000 in the first three months of 2020. Our net income during the three months ended March 31, 2021 is comprised of net income at OmniMetrix of approximately $263,000 plus corporate expenses of approximately $241,000 offset by approximately $2,000 representing the non-controlling interest share of our income from OmniMetrix. Our loss in the three months ended March 31, 2020 is comprised of net loss at OmniMetrix of approximately $59,000 plus corporate expense of approximately $225,000 offset by approximately $1,000 representing the non-controlling interest share of our loss in OmniMetrix.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At March 31, 2021, we had a negative working capital of approximately $71,000. Our working capital includes approximately $1,974,000 of cash and deferred revenue of approximately $3,181,000. Such deferred revenue does not require significant cash outlay for the revenue to be recognized.

 

During the first three months of 2021, our OmniMetrix subsidiary provided approximately $342,000 from its operations, while our corporate headquarters used approximately $274,000 during the same period.

 

We invested approximately $8,000 in hardware purchases during the first three months of 2021.

 

Net cash of approximately $149,000 was used in financing activities during the first three months of 2021 in repayments on our line of credit described above.

 

Other Liquidity Matters

 

OmniMetrix owes Acorn approximately $4,468,000 for loans, accrued interest and expenses advanced to it by Acorn. OmniMetrix made repayments to Acorn of $225,000 in the first quarter of 2021 offset by interest, dividends and other advances of approximately $118,000 in the aggregate.

 

As of May 7, 2021, we had cash of approximately $1,968,000. We believe that such cash, plus the cash generated from operations, will provide sufficient liquidity to finance the operating activities of Acorn and OmniMetrix at their current level of operations for the foreseeable future and for the twelve months from the issuance of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in particular. We may, at some point, elect to obtain a new line of credit to fund additional investments in the business.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURE ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

COVID-19 Risk

 

The COVID-19 pandemic could negatively affect various aspects of our business, including our workforce and supply chain, and make it more difficult and expensive to meet our obligations to our customers, and could result in reduced demand from our customers.

 

The outbreak of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic caused governments around the world to implement quarantines of certain geographic areas and implement significant restrictions on travel. Several governments also implemented work restrictions that prohibit many employees from going to work, both around the world as well as in certain jurisdictions in the United States. At this time, it is unclear if foreign governments or U.S. federal, state or local governments will further extend any of the current restrictions or if further restrictions will be put into place. In addition, many countries, including the United States, have placed significant bans on international travel. It is possible that restrictions or bans on domestic travel may be implemented by U.S. federal, state or local governments. As a result of the pandemic, businesses can be shut down, supply chains can be interrupted, slowed, or rendered inoperable, and individuals can become ill, quarantined, or otherwise unable to work and/or travel due to health reasons or governmental restrictions. However, OmniMetrix is considered an essential business due to the fact that it provides infrastructure support to both government and commercial sectors and across key industries so it has not been forced to shut down to date.

Governmental mandates may require forced shutdowns of our facilities for extended or indefinite periods. In addition, the pandemic could adversely affect our workforce resulting in serious health issues and absenteeism. The pandemic could also substantially interfere with general commercial activity related to our supply chain and customer base, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, business, or prospects. Some of the electronic devices and hardware we purchase, like antennas, radios, and GPS modules are very specific to our application; there are not likely to be practical alternatives. In some cases, our circuit boards were designed around specific electronic hardware that met our specifications. We are working closely with our contract manufacturers and suppliers in order to mitigate as much as possible the risks to our supply chain for these critical devices and hardware, including identifying any lead-time issues and any potential alternate sources. We are also examining all currently open purchase orders in an effort to identify whether we need to issue additional orders to secure product that is critical, already has questionable lead times and/or is unique to our requirements.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of cash and trade accounts receivable. The Company’s cash was deposited with a U.S. bank and amounted to approximately $1,974,000 at March 31, 2021. The Company does not believe there is significant risk of non-performance by these counterparties. For the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, one customer represented approximately 11% and 15%, respectively, of total invoiced sales. Approximately 11% of the accounts receivable at March 31, 2021 was due from one customer who pays its receivables over usual credit periods. As of May 7, 2021, the Company has collected the full outstanding amount of the approximately $73,000 due from this customer as of March 31, 2021. Credit risk with respect to the balance of trade receivables is generally diversified due to the number of entities comprising the Company’s customer base.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair values of financial instruments included in current assets and current liabilities are estimated to approximate their book values due to the short maturity of such investments.

 

Interest Rate Risk

 

OmniMetrix’s Loan and Security Agreement expired in accordance with its terms on February 28, 2021 and we elected not to renew this line of credit. Subsequent to this date, we were not subject to any interest rate risk as of the date of this filing.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to material weaknesses noted in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is (i) accumulated and communicated to our management (including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer) in a timely manner, and (ii) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms.

  

As noted in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, we employ a decentralized internal control methodology, coupled with management’s oversight, whereby our OmniMetrix subsidiary is responsible for mitigating its risks to financial reporting by implementing and maintaining effective control policies and procedures and subsequently translating that respective risk mitigation up and through to the parent level and to our external financial statements. In addition, as our operating subsidiary is not large enough to effectively mitigate certain risks by segregating incompatible duties, management must employ compensating mechanisms throughout our company in a manner that is feasible within the constraints in which it operates.

 

The material weaknesses management identified were caused by an insufficient complement of resources at our OmniMetrix subsidiary and limited IT system capabilities, such that individual control policies and procedures at the subsidiary could not be implemented, maintained, or remediated when and where necessary. As a result, a majority of the significant process areas management identified for our OmniMetrix subsidiary had one or more material weaknesses present.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
