LUVU BRANDS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 (UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1. ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

 Luvu Brands, Inc. (the “Company” or “Luvu”) was incorporated in the State of Florida on February 25, 1999. References to the Company in these notes include the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, OneUp Innovations, Inc. (“OneUp”), and Foam Labs, Inc. (“Foam Labs”). All operations of the Company are currently conducted by OneUp.

 

The Company is an Atlanta, Georgia based designer, manufacturer and marketer of a portfolio of consumer lifestyle brands including: Liberator®, a brand category of iconic products for enhancing sensuality and intimacy; Avana® inclined bed therapy products, assistive in relieving medical conditions associated with acid reflux, surgery recovery and chronic pain; and Jaxx®, a diverse range of casual fashion daybeds, sofas and beanbags made from virgin and re-purposed polyurethane foam. These products are sold through the Company’s websites, concept factory store, online mass merchants and retail stores worldwide. Many of our products are offered flat-packed and either roll or vacuum compressed to save on shipping and reduce our carbon footprint.

 

Sales are generated through internet and print advertisements and social marketing.  We have a diversified customer base with only one customer accounting for 10% or more of consolidated net sales in the current and prior fiscal year and no particular concentration of credit risk in one economic sector.  Foreign operations and foreign net sales are not material. Our business is seasonal and as a result we typically experience higher sales in our second and third fiscal quarters.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and all of its wholly-owned subsidiaries included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to applicable rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for fair presentation have been included. The year-end condensed balance sheet data were derived from audited consolidated financial statements but do not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The results of operations for the six months ended December 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019.

 

NOTE 2. GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP, which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern. As of December 31, 2019 the Company has an accumulated deficit of approximately $8.8 million and a working capital deficit of approximately $2.4 million. This raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

 

In view of these matters, realization of a major portion of the assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn is dependent upon the Company’s ability to meet its financing requirements, and the success of its future operations.  Management believes that actions presently being taken to revise the Company’s operating and financial requirements provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

These actions include an ongoing initiative to increase sales, gross profits and our gross profit margin. To that end, we evaluated various options for increasing the throughput of our compressed foam products and during the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we purchased new foam compression equipment for installation during the second quarter of fiscal 2018. These actions have yielded higher factory throughput at a lower cost of goods sold. However, these operational improvements have been more than offset by rising wages and raw material costs, including the imposition of import tariffs on certain raw materials. We also plan to continue to manage discretionary expense levels to be better aligned with current and expected revenue levels. We estimate that the operational and strategic growth plans we have identified over the next twelve months will, at a minimum, require approximately $150,000 of funding, of which we estimate will be provided by debt financing and, to a lesser extent, cash flow from operations as well as cash on hand.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 (UNAUDITED)

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations.  However, management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing these plans.  The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

 NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts and operations of our wholly owned operating subsidiaries, OneUp and Foam Labs. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

The accompanying consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.  These consolidated condensed financial statements and notes should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements contained in the Company’s report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019 filed with the SEC on October 11, 2019.

 

Use of Estimates

 

 The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions in determining the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Significant estimates in these consolidated financial statements include estimates of: income taxes; tax valuation reserves; allowances for doubtful accounts; inventory valuation and reserves, share-based compensation; and useful lives for depreciation and amortization.  Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.   

 

Revenue Recognition   

 

We record revenue based on the five-step model which includes: (1) identifying the contract with the customer; (2) identifying the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determining the transaction price; (4) allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations; and (5) recognizing revenue when the performance obligations are satisfied. Substantially all of our revenue is generated by fulfilling orders for the purchase of manufactured products and product purchased for resale to retailers, wholesalers, or direct to consumers via online channels, with each order considered to be a distinct performance obligation. These orders may be formal purchase orders, verbal phone orders, e-mail orders or orders received online. Shipping and handling activities for which we are responsible under the terms and conditions of the order are not accounted for as performance obligations but as fulfillment costs. These activities are required to fulfill our promise to transfer the goods and are expensed when revenue is recognized. The impact of this policy election is insignificant as it aligns with our current practice.

 

Revenue is measured as the net amount of consideration expected to be received in exchange for fulfilling a performance obligation. We have elected to exclude sales, use and similar taxes from the measurement of the transaction price.  The impact of this policy election is insignificant, as it aligns with our current practice. The amount of consideration expected to be received and revenue recognized includes estimates of variable consideration, which includes costs for trade promotion programs, coupons, returns and early payment discounts.  Such estimates are calculated using historical averages adjusted for any expected changes due to current business conditions and experience. We review and update these estimates at the end of each reporting period and the impact of any adjustments are recognized in the period the adjustments are identified. In assessing whether collection of consideration from a customer is probable, we consider the customer's ability and intent to pay that amount of consideration when it is due. Payment of invoices is due as specified in the underlying customer agreement, typically 30 days from the invoice date, which occurs on the date of transfer of control of the products to the customer. Revenue is recognized at the point in time that control of the ordered products is transferred to the customer. Generally, this occurs when the product is delivered, or in some cases, picked up from one of our distribution centers by the customer.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 (UNAUDITED)

Deferred revenues

 

Deferred revenues are recorded when the Company has received consideration (i.e. advance payment) before satisfying its performance obligations. Deferred revenues primarily relate to gift cards purchased, but not used, prior to the end of the fiscal period.  

Our total deferred revenue as of June 30, 2019 was $14,198 and was included in “Accrued expenses” on our consolidated balance sheets. The deferred revenue balance as of December 31, 2019 was $15,073.

Cost of Goods Sold

 

Cost of goods sold includes raw materials, labor, manufacturing overhead, and royalty expense.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

 Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

We maintain an allowance for doubtful accounts to reflect our estimate of current and past due receivable balances that may not be collected. The allowance for doubtful accounts is based upon our assessment of the collectability of specific customer accounts, the aging of accounts receivable and our history of bad debts. We believe that the allowance for doubtful accounts is adequate to cover anticipated losses in the receivable balance under current conditions. However, significant deterioration in the financial condition of our customers, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make payments, could materially change these expectations and an additional allowance may be required.

 

The following is a summary of Accounts Receivable as of December 31, 2019 and June 30, 2019.

 

    December 31,

Total accounts receivable, net   $ 1,061     $ 830  

 

Inventories and Inventory Reserves

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. Net realizable value is defined as sales price less cost to dispose and a normal profit margin.  Inventory costs include materials, labor, depreciation and overhead. The company establishes reserves for excess and obsolete inventory, based on prevailing circumstances and judgment for consideration of current events, such as economic conditions, that may affect inventory. The reserve required to record inventory at lower of cost or net realizable value may be adjusted in response to changing conditions.

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company maintains its cash accounts with banks located in Georgia.  The total cash balances are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000 per bank.  The Company had bank balances on deposit at December 31, 2019 that exceeded the balance insured by the FDIC by $444,572.  Accounts receivable are typically unsecured and are derived from revenue earned from customers primarily located in North America and Europe.

 

During the three and six months ended December 31, 2019, we purchased 27% and 31%, respectively, of total inventory purchases from one vendor.

 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, we purchased 37 % of total inventory purchases from one vendor.

 

As of December 31, 2019 one of the Company’s customers (Amazon) represents 55% of the total accounts receivables compared to 50% as of June 30, 2019.

 

Fair Value of Financial and Derivative Instruments

 

At December 31, 2019, our financial instruments included cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other debt.

 

The fair values of these financial instruments approximated their carrying values based on either their short maturity or current terms for similar instruments. The Company measures the fair value of its assets and liabilities under the guidance of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 does not require any new fair value measurements, but its provisions apply to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurement.

 

ASC 820 clarifies that fair value is an exit price, representing the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants based on the highest and best use of the asset or liability. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. ASC 820 requires the Company to use valuation techniques to measure fair value that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized as follows:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets;

 

Level 2: Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities or market-corroborated inputs; and

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions about how market participants would price the assets or liabilities.

 

The valuation techniques that may be used to measure fair value are as follows:

 

A.       Market approach - Uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities.  

B.       Income approach - Uses valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount based on current market expectations about those future amounts, including present value techniques, option-pricing models and excess earnings method.

 

C.        Cost approach - Based on the amount that currently would be required to replace the service capacity of an asset (replacement cost).

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs are expensed in the period when the advertisements are first aired or distributed to the public. Prepaid advertising (included in prepaid expenses) was zero at December 31, 2019 and $1,500 at June 30, 2019. Advertising expense for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $115,815 and $87,613, respectively. Advertising expense for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $195,683 and $185,195, respectively.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses for new products are expensed as they are incurred. Expenses for new product development totaled $26,179 and $37,367 for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Expenses for new product development totaled $54,852 and $73,897 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Research and development costs are included in general and administrative expense.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over estimated service lives for financial reporting purposes of 2-10 years.

 

Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that extend the useful lives of property and equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. When properties are disposed of, the related costs and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is recognized currently.

 

Impairment or Disposal of Long Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets to be held are reviewed for events or changes in circumstances which indicate that their carrying value may not be recoverable. They are tested for recoverability using undiscounted cash flows to determine whether or not impairment to such value has occurred as required by FASB ASC Topic No. 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment. The Company has determined that there was no impairment at December 31, 2019.

 

Leases

 

On July 23, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with its landlord to extend the facilities lease by five years. The previous ten year lease was to expire on December 31, 2015. The agreement amended the lease to expire on December 31, 2020. The lease amendment was effective August 1, 2014 and included a four-month rental abatement in the amount of $117,660. In exchange for the rental abatement, the Company agreed to make improvements to the facility totaling $123,505 within six months of August 1, 2014. As of December 31, 2019, the Company has completed $101,776 of the leasehold improvements. Under the lease amendment, the monthly rent on the facility was $29,415 per month, beginning on December 1, 2014. Beginning January 1, 2015, the monthly rent increases annually with the final year of the lease at $35,123 per month. The rent expense under this lease for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $88,119 and $88,119, respectively. The rent expense under this lease for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 was $176,239 and $176,239, respectively.

Under ASC 842, which was adopted July 1, 2019, the Company determines whether the arrangement is or contains a lease based on the unique facts and circumstances present. Most leases with a term greater than one year are recognized on the balance sheet as right-of-use assets, lease liabilities and, if applicable, long-term lease liabilities. The Company elected not to recognize leases with a term less than one year on its balance sheet. Operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets and their corresponding lease liabilities are recorded based on the present value of lease payments over the expected remaining lease term. The interest rate implicit in lease contracts is typically not readily determinable. As a result, the Company utilizes its incremental borrowing rates, which are the rates incurred to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term, an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment.

In accordance with the guidance in ASU 2016-02, components of a lease should be split into three categories: lease components (e.g. land, building, etc.), non-lease components (e.g. common area maintenance, consumables, etc.), and non-components (e.g. property taxes, insurance, etc.) Then the fixed and in-substance fixed contract consideration (including any related to non-components) must be allocated based on fair values to the lease components and non-lease components. Although separation of lease and non-lease components is required, the Company elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components. The lease component results in an operating right-of-use asset being recorded on the balance sheet and amortized on a straight-line basis as lease expense. See Note 17 for details.

Under prior guidance ASC 840, rent expense and lease incentives from operating leases were recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The difference between rent expense recognized and rental payments was recorded as deferred rent in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

  Recent accounting pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by FASB or other standard setting bodies that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date.

 

Recently adopted 

 

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12, Leases, which requires entities to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by all leases, including operating leases, with terms of more than 12 months. The new guidance also requires additional disclosures on the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. These disclosures include qualitative and quantitative information. This amendment is effective for the Company’s fiscal year ending June 2020 with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted the guidance on July 1, 2019 and recorded an operating lease asset and a corresponding operating lease liability for the same amount. The adoption was done on a modified retrospective basis with no adjustments made to periods prior to July 1, 2019 (see Note 17.)

 

Not yet adopted

 

In August 2018, FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. As part of FASB's disclosure framework project, it has eliminated, amended and added disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. Entities will no longer be required to disclose the amount of, and reasons for, transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the policy of timing of transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy and the valuation processes for Level 3 fair value measurements. Public companies will be required to disclose the range and weighted average used to develop significant unobservable inputs for Level 3 fair value measurements. This ASU is effective for public entities for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted as of the beginning of any interim or annual reporting period.  The Company does not believe it will materially impact the disclosures.

All other newly issued accounting pronouncements, but not yet effective, have been deemed either immaterial or not applicable.

Net Income Per Share 

Basic net income per common share was determined by dividing net income applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding during the period, and diluted net income per share was determined by dividing net income applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding during the period plus the effect of stock options using the treasury stock method.  As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the common stock equivalents did not have any effect on net income per share. 

    December 31,
    2019   2018
Common stock options – 2009 Plan     100,000       200,000  
Common stock options – 2015 Plan     4,100,000       3,950,000  
Convertible preferred stock     4,300,000       4,300,000  
  Total     8,500,000       8,450,000  

 

Income Taxes

 

We utilize the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. We recognize deferred tax liabilities or assets for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the book and tax basis of assets and liabilities. We regularly assess the likelihood that our deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income. We consider projected future taxable income and ongoing tax planning strategies in assessing the amount of the valuation allowance necessary to offset our deferred tax assets that will not be recoverable. We have recorded and continue to carry a full valuation allowance against our gross deferred tax assets that will not reverse against deferred tax liabilities within the scheduled reversal period. If we determine in the future that it is more likely than not that we will realize all or a portion of our deferred tax assets, we will adjust our valuation allowance in the period we make the determination. We expect to provide a full valuation allowance on our future tax benefits until we can sustain a level of profitability that demonstrates our ability to realize these assets.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

We account for stock-based compensation to employees in accordance with FASB ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. We measure the cost of each stock option and restricted stock award at its fair value on the grant date. Each award vests over the subsequent period during which the recipient is required to provide service in exchange for the award (the vesting period). The cost of each award is recognized as expense in the financial statements over the respective vesting period.

  

NOTE 4. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

We follow FASB ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, regarding impairment of our other long-lived assets (property, plant and equipment). Our policy is to assess our long-lived assets for impairment annually in the fourth quarter of each year or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of these assets may not be recoverable.

 

 An impairment loss is recognized only if the carrying value of a long-lived asset is not recoverable and is measured as the excess of its carrying value over its fair value. The carrying amount of a long-lived asset is considered not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of a long-lived asset.

 

Assets to be disposed of and related liabilities would be separately presented in the consolidated balance sheet. Assets to be disposed of would be reported at the lower of the carrying value or fair value less costs to sell and would not be depreciated.  There was no impairment as of December 31, 2019 or June 30, 2019.

 Equipment and leasehold improvements, net   $ 724     $ 792      

 

Management reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable. Recoverability of these assets is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount to forecasted undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount exceeds its estimated future cash flows, then an impairment charge is recognized to the extent that the carrying amount exceeds the asset’s fair value. Management has determined no asset impairment occurred during the six months ended December 31, 2019.

Three Months Ended December 31, 2019 Compared to Three Months Ended December 31, 2018

 

Net sales. Sales for the three months ended December 31, 2019 were $4,779,374, essentially unchanged from the comparable prior year period.  The major components of net sales, by product, are as follows:

 

  · Liberator sales - Sales of Liberator branded products decreased $254,000 (or 11%) during the quarter from the comparable prior year period, due primarily to lower sales through Amazon.com;

 

  · Jaxx sales – Jaxx product sales increased $146,000 (or 14%) from the prior year second quarter, primarily due to an expanded product offering of indoor products and greater sales through e-merchants, including Amazon and Wayfair;

 

  · Avana sales – Net sales of Avana products increased $199,000 (or 24%) during the quarter from the comparable prior year quarter. This line of top-of-bed comfort products continues to sell well through e-merchant channels with broad consumer reach including Amazon, Overstock and others; and

 

  · Products purchased for resale – This product category decreased by $70,000 (or 15%) from the prior year second quarter due to lower sales of certain products through our e-commerce website, Liberator.com and Amazon.com.

 

Gross margin. Gross profit, derived from net sales less the cost of goods sold, includes the cost of materials, direct labor, manufacturing overhead, freight costs and depreciation.  Despite labor cost increases in all production areas, gross profit increased to $1,519,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019 from $1,322,000 in the comparable prior year period. The labor cost increases were offset by favorable inventory adjustments and the positive impact of outsourcing the sewing of certain high volume Jaxx and Avana products to Mexico. As a result, the gross margin, as a percentage of sales, increased to 32% from 28% in the prior year period.

 

Operating expenses. Total operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2019 were 23% of net sales, or approximately $1,105,000, compared to 21% of net sales, or approximately $979,000, for the same period in the prior year.  Of the $126,000 increase, approximately $61,000 was due to higher administrative salaries and property taxes and $29,000 in higher advertising and promotion. 

 

Other income (expense). Other income (expense) during the second quarter increased from expense of approximately ($144,000) in fiscal 2019 to expense of approximately ($157,000) during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher average borrowing balances and additional interest expense on those higher balances.

Six Months Ended December 31, 2019 Compared to Six Months Ended December 31, 2018

 

Net sales. Sales for the six months ended December 31, 2019 were $8,873,923, a 2% increase from the comparable prior year period.  The major components of net sales, by product, are as follows:

 

  · Liberator sales - Sales of Liberator branded products decreased $449,000 (or 11%) during the first six months from the comparable prior year period, due primarily to lower sales through Amazon.com;

 

  · Jaxx sales – Jaxx product sales increased $300,000 (or 14%) from the prior year first half, primarily due to an expanded product offering of outdoor and indoor products and greater sales through e-merchants, including Amazon and Wayfair;

 

  · Avana sales – Net sales of Avana products increased $353,000 (or 23%) during the first six months from the comparable prior year period. This line of top-of-bed comfort products continues to sell well through e-merchant channels with broad consumer reach including Amazon, Overstock and others; and

 

  · Products purchased for resale – This product category decreased by $72,000 (or 8%) from the prior year first half due to lower sales of certain products through our e-commerce website, Liberator.com.

 

Gross margin. Gross profit, derived from net sales less the cost of goods sold, includes the cost of materials, direct labor, manufacturing overhead, freight costs and depreciation.  Despite labor cost increases in all production areas, gross profit increased to $2,657,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 from $2,309,000 in the comparable prior year period. The labor cost increases were offset by favorable inventory adjustments and the positive impact of outsourcing the sewing of certain high volume Jaxx and Avana products to Mexico. As a result, the gross margin, as a percentage of sales, increased to 30% from 27% in the prior year period.

 

Operating expenses. Total operating expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2019 were 24% of net sales, or approximately $2,129,000, compared to 23% of net sales, or approximately $1,962,000, for the same period in the prior year.  Of the $167,000 increase, approximately $200,000 was due to higher selling and administrative salaries and personnel costs, offset in part by lower insurance expenses ($55,000). 

 

 

Other income (expense). Other income (expense) during the first six month increased from expense of approximately ($286,000) in fiscal 2019 to expense of approximately ($316,000) during the first half of fiscal 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher average borrowing balances and additional interest expense on those higher balances.

 

Variability of Results

 

We have experienced significant quarterly fluctuations in operating results and anticipate that these fluctuations may continue in future periods. Operating results have fluctuated as a result of changes in sales levels to consumers and wholesalers, competition, seasonality costs associated with new product introductions, and increases in raw material costs. In addition, future operating results may fluctuate as a result of factors beyond our control such as foreign exchange fluctuation, changes in government regulations, and economic changes in the regions in which we operate and sell. A portion of our operating expenses are relatively fixed and the timing of increases in expense levels is based in large part on forecasts of future sales. Therefore, if net sales are below expectations in any given period, the adverse impact on results of operations may be magnified by our inability to meaningfully adjust spending in certain areas, or the inability to adjust spending quickly enough, as in personnel and administrative costs, to compensate for a sales shortfall. We may also choose to increase spending in response to market conditions, and these decisions may have a material adverse effect on financial condition and results of operations.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The following table summarizes our cash flows:        
    Six Months Ended
    December 31,
(Dollars in thousands)   2019   2018
    (Unaudited)
Cash flow data:        
Cash (used in) provided by operating activities   $ (117 )   $ 176  
Cash used in investing activities   $ (12 )   $ (3 )
Cash provided by (used in) financing activities   $ 94     $ (35

    

As of December 31, 2019, our cash and cash equivalents totaled $614,212, compared to $569,241 in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2018.

 

For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Our principal sources of liquidity are our cash flow that we generate from our operations, availability of borrowings under our line of credit and cash raised through equity and debt financings.

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $117,045 in the six months ended December 31, 2019 compared to $175,631 net cash used in operating activities in the six months ended December 31, 2018.  The primary components of the cash used by operating activities in the current year is the net income of $211,906 and an increase in accrued payroll of $61,871, an increase in accrued expenses of $27,411, offset by an increase in accounts receivable of $231,646 and an increase in inventory of $202,477.

 

Investing Activities

 

Cash used in investing activities in the six months ended December 31, 2019 was $11,612 and related to the purchase and installation of certain production equipment during the first six months.

 

Financing Activities

 

Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended December 31, 2019 of $93,841 was primarily attributable to the proceeds from the unsecured and secured notes payable and borrowings from the credit card advance, offset in part by the repayment of the unsecured and secured notes payable and credit card advance.

Cash used in financing activities during the six months ended December 31, 2018 of approximately $35,000 was primarily attributable to the proceeds from the unsecured notes payable, the proceeds from the increase in the line of credit, the proceeds from the credit card advance, offset in part by the repayment of the unsecured notes payable and credit card advance.

 

Inflation

 

We cannot determine the precise effects of inflation; however, inflation continues to have an influence on the cost of materials, salaries, and transportation costs.  We attempt to offset the effects of inflation through increased selling prices, productivity improvements, and reduction of costs.

Sufficiency of Liquidity

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP, which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern. We incurred a net income of approximately $212,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and a net loss of approximately ($157,000) for the year ended June 30, 2019. As of December 31, 2019, we have an accumulated deficit of approximately $8.8 million and a working capital deficit of approximately $2.4 million. This raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

In view of these matters, realization of a major portion of the assets in the accompanying balance sheet is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn is dependent upon our ability to meet our financing requirements, and the success of our future operations. Management believes that actions presently being taken to revise our operating and financial requirements provide the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

These actions include an ongoing initiative to increase sales, gross profits and our gross profit margin. To that end, we evaluated various options for increasing the throughput of our compressed foam products and during the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we purchased new foam compression equipment for installation during the second quarter of fiscal 2018. These actions have yielded higher factory throughput at a lower cost of goods sold. However, these operational improvements have been more than offset by rising wages and raw material costs. We also plan to continue to manage discretionary expense levels to be better aligned with current and expected revenue levels. We estimate that the operational and strategic growth plans we have identified over the next twelve months will, at a minimum, require approximately $150,000 of funding, of which we estimate will be provided by debt financing and, to a lesser extent, cash flow from operations as well as cash on hand.

 

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT OF FORWARD LOOKING INFORMATION

 

Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include certain forward-looking statements. Those statements include, but may not be limited to, all statements regarding management’s intent, belief, and expectations, such as statements concerning our future profitability and our operating and growth strategy. Words such as believe,” anticipate,” expect,” will,” may,” should,” intend,” plan,” estimate,” predict,” potential,” continue,” likely” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

 

In addition, any statements that refer to our plans, expectations, strategies or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned that these forward-looking statements are predictions and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statement for any reason.  

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

Reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA income for the six months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018: 

 

 (Dollars in thousands)   Six months ended December 31,
    2019   2018
Net income   $ 212     $ 61  
Plus interest expense, net     316       286  
Plus depreciation and amortization expense     79       83  
Plus stock-based compensation     11       12  
Adjusted EBITDA income   $ 618     $ 442  

  

 

30


 
 

 

 

As used herein, Adjusted EBITDA income represents net income before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expense. We have excluded the non-cash expenses and stock-based compensation, as they do not reflect the cash-based operations of the Company. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required by or defined under GAAP. The presentation of this financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including the net loss of the Company or net cash used in operating activities.

 

Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with the Company’s net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not a substitute for or a measure of the Company’s profitability or net earnings. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it is useful to investors as a measure of comparative operating performance and liquidity, and because it is less susceptible to variances in actual performance resulting from depreciation and non-cash charges for stock-based compensation expense.

 

ITEM 3.                        QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We do not enter into any transactions using derivative financial instruments or derivative commodity instruments and believe that our exposure to market risk associated with other financial instruments is not material.

 

ITEM 4.                        CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain a set of disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. As of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, an evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer (Chief Executive Officer) and principal financial officer (Chief Financial Officer), of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, were effective at the reasonable assurance level to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in United States Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the management, including CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
