NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2018

(UNAUDITED )

 

NOTE A – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements follows.

 

General

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Telkonet, Inc. (the “Company”, “Telkonet”) 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 of 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. However, the results from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2018, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated December 31, 2017 financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Refer to Note C – Revenue for the adoption of a new revenue recognition standard in the first quarter of 2018.

 

Business and Basis of Presentation

 

Telkonet, formed in 1999 and incorporated under the laws of the state of Utah, is the creator of the EcoSmart Platform of intelligent automation solutions designed to optimize energy efficiency, comfort and analytics in support of the emerging Internet of Things (“IoT”).

 

In 2007, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Smart Systems International (“SSI”), which was a provider of energy management products and solutions to customers in the United States and Canada and the precursor to the Company’s EcoSmart platform. The EcoSmart platform provides comprehensive savings, management reporting, analytics and virtual engineering of a customer’s portfolio and/or property’s room-by-room energy consumption. Telkonet has deployed more than a half million intelligent devices worldwide in properties within the hospitality, military, educational, healthcare and other commercial markets. The EcoSmart platform is rapidly being recognized as a leading solution for reducing energy consumption, operational costs and carbon footprints, and eliminating the need for new energy generation in these marketplaces – all while improving occupant comfort and convenience.

 

On March 28, 2017, the Company sold substantially all of the assets of its wholly-owned subsidiary, EthoStream LLC. Refer to Note M for further details.

  

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Telkonet Communications, Inc. The prior year accounts of EthoStream LLC have been classified as discontinued operations on the consolidated statement of operations and the consolidated statement of cash flows. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Unless otherwise noted, all financial information in the consolidated financial statement footnotes reflect the Company’s results from continuing operations.

 

Liquidity and Financial Condition

 

We have financed our operations since inception primarily through private and public offerings of our equity securities, the issuance of various debt instruments and asset based lending.

 

The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $1,390,748 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, had cash used in operating activities from continuing operations of $2,179,004, had an accumulated deficit of $121,545,405 and total current assets in excess of current liabilities of $7,723,791 as of June 30, 2018.

Income (Loss) per Common Share

 

The Company computes earnings per share under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260-10, “Earnings Per Share”. Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed using the treasury stock method, which assumes that the proceeds to be received on exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants are used to repurchase shares of the Company at the average market price of the common shares for the year. Dilutive common stock equivalents consist of shares issuable upon the exercise of the Company's outstanding stock options and warrants. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, there were 3,557,399 and 5,701,800 shares of common stock underlying options and warrants excluded due to these instruments being anti-dilutive, respectively.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States of America (U.S.) generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make certain estimates, judgments 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates are used when accounting for items and matters such as revenue recognition and allowances for uncollectible accounts receivable, inventory obsolescence, depreciation and amortization, long-lived assets, taxes and related valuation allowance, income tax provisions, stock-based compensation, and contingencies. The Company believes that the estimates, judgments and assumptions are reasonable, based on information available at the time they are made. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740-10 “Income Taxes.” Under this method, deferred income taxes (when required) are provided based on the difference between the financial reporting and income tax bases of assets and liabilities and net operating losses at the statutory rates enacted for future periods. The Company has a policy of establishing a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize the benefits of its deferred income tax assets in the future.

 

The Company adopted ASC 740-10-25, which prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC 740-10-25 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, treatment of interest and penalties, and disclosure of such positions.

 

The U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act makes broad complex changes to the U.S. tax code including, but not limited to, reducing the U.S. federal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, requiring companies to pay a one-time transition tax on earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries that were previously tax deferred, and creating new taxes on certain foreign sourced earnings and additional limitations on the deductibility of interest.

 

The SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (SAB 118) in December, 2017, to provide guidance on accounting for the effects of the Tax Act. SAB 118 provides for a measurement period of up to one year from the Tax Act enactment date for companies to complete their assessment of and accounting for those effects of the Tax Act. Under SAB 118, a company must first reflect the income tax effects of the Tax Act for which the accounting is complete in the period of the date of enactment. To the extent the accounting for other income tax effects is incomplete, but a reasonable estimate can be determined, companies must record a provisional estimate to be included in their financial statements. For any income tax effect for which a reasonable estimate cannot be determined, an entity must continue to apply ASC 740 based on the provisions of the tax laws in effect immediately prior to the Tax Act being enacted until such time as a reasonable estimate can be determined. The Company requires additional time to complete its analysis of the impacts of the Tax Act and therefore its accounting for the Tax Act is provisional but is a reasonable estimate based on available information. The Company will complete its analysis and finalize its accounting for this provisional estimate during the one year measurement period as prescribed by SAB 118.

 

Revenue from Contracts with Customers

 

Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606, the Standard”) supersedes nearly all legacy revenue recognition guidance. ASC 606 outlines a comprehensive five-step revenue recognition model based on the principle that an entity should recognize revenue based on when it satisfies its performance obligations by transferring control of promised goods or services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for said goods or services.

Identify the customer contracts

 

The Company accounts for a customer contract under ASC 606 when the contract is legally enforceable. A contract is legally enforceable when all of the following criteria are met: (1) the contract has been approved by the Company and the customer and both parties are committed to perform their respective obligations, (2) the Company can identify each party’s rights regarding goods or services transferred, (3) the Company can identify payment terms for goods or services transferred, (4) the contract has commercial substance, and (5) collectability of all the consideration to which the Company is entitled in exchange for the goods or services transferred is probable.

 

A contract does not exist if each party to the contract has the unilateral right to terminate a wholly unperformed contract without compensating the other party (or parties). Nearly all of the Company’s contracts do not contain such mutual termination rights for convenience. All contracts are in written form.

 

Identify the performance obligations

 

The Company will enter into product only contracts that contain a single performance obligation related to the transfer of EcoSmart products to a customer.

 

The Company will also enter into certain customer contracts that encompass product and installation services, referred to as “turnkey” solutions. These contracts ultimately provide the customer with a solution that enhances the functionality of the customer’s existing equipment. For this reason, the Company has determined that the product and installation services are not separately identifiable performance obligations, but in essence represent one, combined performance obligation (“turnkey”).

 

The Company also offers post-installation support services to customers. Support services are considered a separate performance obligation.

 

Determine the transaction price

 

The Company generally enters into contracts containing fixed prices. It is not customary for the Company to include contract terms that would result in variable consideration. In the rare situation that a contract does include this type of provision, it is not expected to result in a material adjustment to the transaction price. The Company regularly extends pricing discounts; however, they are negotiated up front and adjust the fixed transaction price set out in the contract.

 

Customer contracts will typically contain upfront deposits that will be applied against future invoices, as well as customer retainage. The intent of any required deposit or retainage is to ensure that the obligations of either party are honored and follow customary industry practices. In addition, the Company will typically be paid in advance at the beginning of any support contracts, consistent with industry practices. None of these payment provisions are intended to represent significant implicit financing. The Company’s standard payment terms are thirty days from invoice date. Products are fully refundable when returned in their original packaging without damage or defacing less a restocking fee not to exceed fifty (50%) percent of the product’s price. Historical returns have shown to be immaterial. The Company offers a standard one-year assurance warranty. However customers can purchase an extended warranty. Under the new standard, extended warranties are accounted for as a service warranty, requiring the revenue to be recognized over the extended service periods. Contracts involving an extended warranty are immaterial and will continue to be combined with support revenue and recognized on a straight-line basis over the support revenue term.

 

Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations

 

Revenues from customer contracts are allocated to the separate performance obligations based on their relative stand-alone selling price (“SSP”) at contract inception. The SSP is the price at which the Company would sell a promised good or service separately. The best evidence of an SSP is the observable price of a good or service when the entity sells that good or service separately in similar circumstances and to similar customers. However, turnkey solutions are sold for a broad range of amounts resulting from, but not limited to, tiered discounting for value added resellers (“VAR”) based upon committed volumes and other economic factors. Due to the high variability of our pricing, the Company cannot establish a reliable SSP using observable data. Accordingly, the Company uses the residual approach to allocate the transaction price to performance obligations related to its turnkey solutions.

 

All support service agreements, whether single or multi-year terms, automatically renew for one-year terms at a suggested retail price (“SRP”). Support service renewals are consistently priced and therefore would support the use of SRP as the best estimate of an SSP for such performance obligations.

Recognize Revenue

 

The Company recognizes revenues from product only sales at a point in time, when control over the product has transferred to the customer. As the Company’s principal terms of sale are FOB shipping point, the Company primarily transfers control and records revenue for product only sales upon shipment.

 

A typical turnkey project involves the installation and integration of 200-300 rooms in a customer-controlled facility and usually takes sixty days to complete. Since control over goods and services transfers to a customer once a room is installed, the Company recognizes revenue for turnkey solutions over time. The Company uses an outputs measure based on the number of rooms installed to recognize revenues from turnkey solutions.

 

Revenues from support services are recognized over time, in even daily increments over the term of the contract.

 

Deferred revenue includes deferrals for the monthly support service fees. Long-term deferred revenue represents support service fees that will be recognized as revenue after June 30, 2019.

 

Transition

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 using a modified retrospective approach to all contracts not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC 606, while prior period amounts were not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with the Company’s historic accounting under Topic 605, Revenue Recognition. The Company recorded a net decrease to beginning retained earnings of $0.43 million as of January 1, 2018 due to the cumulative impact of adopting ASC 606. The impact to beginning retained earnings was primarily driven by the deferral of revenue for unfulfilled performance obligations related to the Company’s turnkey solutions.

 

Guarantees and Product Warranties

 

The Company records a liability for potential warranty claims in cost of sales at the time of sale. The amount of the liability is based on the trend in the historical ratio of claims to sales, the historical length of time between the sale and resulting warranty claim, new product introductions and other factors. The products sold are generally covered by a warranty for a period of one year. In the event the Company determines that its current or future product repair and replacement costs exceed its estimates, an adjustment to these reserves would be charged to earnings in the period such determination is made. For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company experienced returns of approximately 1% to 2% of materials included in the cost of sales. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company recorded warranty liabilities in the amount of $60,622 and $59,892, respectively, using this experience factor range.

 

Product warranties for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017 are as follows:

 

    June 30,
2018
    December 31,
2017
 
Beginning balance   $ 59,892     $ 95,540  
Warranty claims incurred     (7,117 )     (84,087 )

Ending balance   $ 60,622     $ 59,892  

     

NOTE B – NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (“ASU 2016-02”). The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of operations. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2016-02 on its consolidated financial statements. Upon adoption, the Company expects that the ROU asset and lease liability will be recognized in the balance sheets in amounts that will be material.

 

 

 

 

  11  
 

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. ASU 2016-13 provides guidance for estimating credit losses on certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables, by introducing an approach based on expected losses. The expected loss approach will require entities to incorporate considerations of historical information, current information and reasonable and supportable forecasts. ASU 2016-13 also amends the accounting for credit losses on available-for-sale debt securities and purchased financial assets with credit deterioration. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The guidance requires a modified retrospective transition method and early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2016-13 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Management has evaluated other recently issued accounting pronouncements and does not believe that any of these pronouncements will have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Accounting Standards Recently Adopted

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606, the Standard”), which supersedes nearly all legacy revenue recognition guidance. ASC 606 outlines a comprehensive five-step revenue recognition model based on the principle that an entity should recognize revenue based on when an it satisfies its performance obligations by transferring control of promised goods or services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for said goods or services.

 

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company has adopted ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows: Restricted Cash, (“Update 2016-18”). Update 2016-18 provides guidance on the classification of restricted cash in the statement of cash flows. The amendments are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The amendments in Update 2016-18 was adopted on a retrospective basis. Due to the adoption of ASU 2016-18, the cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 increased by $10,000 and $900,000 of restricted cash held as of June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

The following table presents the Company’s product and recurring revenues disaggregated by industry for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

    Hospitality     Education     Multiple Dwelling Units     Government     Total  
Recurring   $ 224,730     $ 21,310     $ 8,855     $     $ 254,895

Sales taxes and other usage-based taxes are excluded from revenues.

 

Contract assets

 

Contracts are billed in accordance with the terms and conditions, either at periodic intervals or upon substantial completion. This can result in billing occurring subsequent to revenue recognition, resulting in contract assets. Contract assets are presented as current assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. The balance of contract assets as of June 30, 2018 and at the date of adoption of ASC 606 was $0.35 million and $0.35 million, respectively. There were approximately $0.1 million of costs incurred to fulfill a contract in the closing balance of contract assets.

 

Contract liabilities

 

Contracts are billed in accordance with the terms and conditions, either at periodic intervals or upon substantial completion. Often, the Company will require customers to pay a deposit upon contract signing that will be applied against work performed or products shipped. In addition, the Company will often invoice the full term of support at the start of the support period. Billings that occur prior to revenue recognition result in contract liabilities. As of June 30, 2018 and at the date of adoption of ASC 606, contract liabilities were $1.05 million and $0.78 million, respectively. The change in the contract liability balance during the six-month period ended June 30, 2018 is the result of cash payments received and billing in advance of satisfying performance obligations, less $0.79 million of revenue recognized during the period that was included in the contract liability balance at the date of adoption.

Contract costs

 

Costs to fulfill a turnkey contract primarily relate to the materials cost and direct labor and are recognized proportionately as the performance obligation is satisfied. The Company will defer cost to fulfill a contract when materials have shipped (and control over the materials has transferred to the customer), but an insignificant amount of rooms have been installed. The Company will recognize any deferred costs in proportion to revenues recognized from the related turnkey contract. The Company does not expect deferred contract costs to be long-lived since a typical turnkey project takes sixty days to complete. Deferred contract costs are generally presented as other current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

The Company incurs incremental costs to obtain a contract in the form of sales commissions. These costs, whether related to performance obligations that extend beyond twelve months or not, are immaterial and will continue to be recognized in the period incurred within selling, general and administrative expenses.

Revolving Credit Facility

 

The Heritage Bank Loan Agreement (the “Credit Facility”) contains representations and warranties, covenants, and other provisions customary to transactions of this nature. As of June 30, 2018, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants. The outstanding principal balance of the Credit Facility bears interest at the Prime Rate plus 3.00%, which was 8% at June 30, 2018 and 7.50% at December 31, 2017. The outstanding balance on the Credit Facility was zero and $682,211 at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. The remaining available borrowing capacity was approximately $1,622,000 and $202,000 at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.

 

On March 31, 2018, an amendment to the revolving credit facility with Heritage Bank was executed to amend certain terms of the Heritage Bank Loan Agreement. Among the terms of the amendment was that if the Company fails to comply with required EBITDA covenants as of any particular quarterly measurement date, the Company will be deemed to be in compliance as of the measurement date if the Company’s unrestricted cash maintained at Heritage Bank is in excess of $5,000,000.

During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and during the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company agreed to issue common stock in the amount of $36,000 and $144,000, respectively, to the Company’s non-employee directors as compensation for their attendance and participation in the Company’s Board of Director and committee meetings.

 

Upon execution of their employment agreements during the six months ended June 30, 2017, the CEO, CTO and former COO, were each granted 1,000,000 stock options at their fair market value and were scheduled to vest over a three year period. However, pursuant to their employment agreements, the stock options vested immediately upon the sale of the Company’s subsidiary, EthoStream, in March 2017. Effective with the sale of the assets of EthoStream, the former COO was hired by DCI. In compliance with the terms of the former COO’s stock option grant letter, the former COO’s stock options were canceled during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the CEO, CTO, and former COO, each earned a bonus of $29,250 that was contingent on the sale and sale price amount of EthoStream.

The following discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, as well as the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto and management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 2, 2018.

 

Business

 

Telkonet, Inc. (the “Company”, “Telkonet”), formed in 1999 and incorporated under the laws of the state of Utah, is the creator of the EcoSmart Platform of intelligent automation solutions designed to optimize energy efficiency, comfort and analytics in support of the emerging Internet of Things (“IoT”).

 

In October of 2016, the Company, under the direction and authority of the Board of Directors, committed to a plan to offer for sale EthoStream LLC (“EthoStream”), its wholly-owned High-Speed Internet Access (“HSIA”) subsidiary. While EthoStream was one of the largest public HSIA providers in the world, providing services to more than 12.0 million users monthly across a network of approximately 1,800 locations, the Company focused on its higher growth potential EcoSmart Platform line. As a result of this decision to sell EthoStream, the operating results of EthoStream for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 have been reclassified as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated statement of operations and as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations. The sale closed on March 29, 2017.

 

The Company’s direct sales effort targets the hospitality, education, commercial, utility and government/military markets. Taking advantage of legislation, including the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, or EISA, the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act the Company is focusing its sales efforts in areas with available public funding and incentives, such as rebate programs offered by utilities for efficiency upgrades. Through the Company’s proprietary platform, technology and partnerships with energy efficiency providers, the Company’s management intends to position the Company as a leading provider of energy management solutions.

EBITDA from Continuing Operations

 

Management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures may be useful to investors in certain instances to provide additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) is a metric used by management and frequently used by the financial community. Adjusted EBITDA provides insight into an organization’s operating trends and facilitates comparisons between peer companies, since interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization can differ greatly between organizations as a result of differing capital structures and tax strategies. Adjusted EBITDA is one of the measures used for determining our debt covenant compliance. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain items that are unusual in nature or not comparable from period to period. While management believes that non-GAAP measurements are useful supplemental information, such adjusted results are not intended to replace our GAAP financial results. Adjusted EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income (loss), income (loss) from operations, or any other measure for determining operating performance of liquidity, as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). In assessing the overall health of its business for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company excluded items in the following general category described below:

 

· Stock-based compensation: The Company believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, varying methodologies for determining stock-based compensation and the assumptions and estimates involved in those determinations, the exclusion of non-cash stock-based compensation enhances the ability of management and investors to understand the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation on our operating results. Further, the Company believes that excluding stock-based compensation expense allows for a more transparent comparison of its financial results to the previous period.
   
· Bonus paid to executives upon sale of discontinued operations: The Company does not consider the bonuses of $87,750 associated with the sale of EthoStream to be indicative of current or future operating performance. Therefore, the Company does not consider the inclusion of these costs helpful in assessing its current financial performance compared to the previous year.

On March 31, 2018, an amendment to the revolving credit facility with Heritage Bank was executed to amend certain terms of the Heritage Bank Loan Agreement. Among the terms of the amendment was that if the Company fails to comply with required EBITDA covenants as of any particular quarterly measurement date, the Company will be deemed to be in compliance as of the measurement date if the Company’s unrestricted cash maintained at Heritage Bank is in excess of $5,000,000.

  

Cash Flow Analysis

 

Cash used in continuing operations was $2,179,004 and $1,770,068 during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. As of June 30, 2018, our primary capital needs included costs incurred to increase energy management sales, inventory procurement, and managing current liabilities. The working capital changes during the six months ended June 30, 2018 were primarily related to an approximate $373,000 increase in accounts receivable, a $453,000 increase in prepaid expense and other current assets, offset by a $277,000 decrease in inventory, a $124,000 decrease in customer deposits, a $512,000 decrease in deferred revenues and an $18,000 decrease in accounts payable. The working capital changes during the six months ended June 30, 2017 were primarily related to an approximate $140,000 increase in accounts receivable, offset by a $75,000 decrease in inventory, a $160,000 increase in customer deposits, a $76,000 decrease in accrued liabilities and expenses and a $97,000 decrease in accounts payable. Accounts receivable fluctuates based on the negotiated billing terms with customers and collections. We purchase inventory based on forecasts and orders, and when those forecasts and orders change, the amount of inventory may also fluctuate. Accounts payable fluctuates with changes in inventory levels, volume of inventory purchases, and negotiated supplier and vendor terms.

Cash used for payments on the line of credit were $682,211 during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

We are working to manage our current liabilities while we continue to make changes in operations to improve our cash flow and liquidity position.

 

Management expects that global economic conditions, in particular the decreasing price of energy, along with competition will continue to present a challenging operating environment through 2018; therefore working capital management will continue to be a high priority for 2018. The Company’s estimated cash requirements for our operations for the next 12 months is not anticipated to differ significantly from our present cash requirements for our operations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company has no material off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Acquisition or Disposition of Property and Equipment

 

The Company does not anticipate significant purchases of property or equipment during the next twelve months. The Waukesha, Wisconsin lease may require additional furniture, shelving, computer equipment and peripherals to be used in the Company’s day-to-day operations.

  

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures.

 

As of June 30, 2018, the Company performed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures. Management has identified control deficiencies regarding the lack of segregation of duties due to the limited size of the Company’s accounting department, a failure to implement adequate internal control over financial reporting including in our IT general control environment, and the need for a stronger internal control environment particularly in our financial reporting and close process. We lack sufficient personnel resources and technical accounting and reporting expertise to appropriately address certain accounting and financial reporting matters in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. We did not have an adequate process or appropriate controls in place to support the accurate reporting of our financial results and disclosures on our Form 10-Q. Management of the Company believes that these material weaknesses are due to the small size of the Company’s accounting staff. The small size of the Company’s accounting staff may prevent adequate controls in the future, such as segregation of duties, due to the cost/benefit of such remediation. The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of the end of the period covered by this report.

 

We are reviewing actions to remediate the identified material weaknesses. As we continue to evaluate and work to improve our internal controls over financial reporting, our senior management may determine to take additional measures to address deficiencies or modify the remediation efforts. Until the remediation efforts that our senior management identifies as necessary, are completed, tested and determined effective, the material weaknesses described above will continue to exist.

 

In light of these material weaknesses, we performed additional analyses and procedures in order to conclude that our condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2018 and 2017 included in this Form 10-Q were fairly stated in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that despite our material weaknesses, our condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 are fairly stated, in all material respects, in accordance with GAAP.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

  

Item 1.  Legal Proceedings.

 

The Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims which arise in the ordinary course of its business.  Although occasional adverse decisions or settlements may occur, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters should not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

   

Item 1A.  Risk Factors.

 

Investors should consider carefully the following risk factors in addition to the other information included and incorporated by reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that we believe are applicable to our business and the industries in which we operate.

 

New tariffs and evolving trade policy between the United States and China may have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

During 2018, the United States Federal Government imposed significant tariffs on imports from numerous countries, including China. Subsequent to this, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (“USTR”) announced an initial proposed list of imports from China that could be subject to additional tariffs. The list of imports for which Customs and Border Protection began collecting additional duties during July 2018, focuses on the industrial sector. The Company’s main supplier, accounting for over 80% of total purchases, is located in China. The products that the Company purchases from the supplier are subject to up to 25% tariffs. As a result, the tariffs will directly increase our cost of sales.

 

In addition, these new tariffs and the evolving trade policy dispute between the United States and China may have a significant impact on the industries in which we participate. Further governmental action related to tariffs or international trade agreements or policies has the potential to adversely impact demand for our products, our costs, customers, suppliers and/or the United States economy, thus, to adversely impact our businesses and results of operations.
