NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Principles and Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Preparation

 

Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., a New Jersey corporation, together with its subsidiaries (“we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company”), is a global designer and manufacturer of advanced radio frequency (“RF”) and microwave components, modules, systems and instruments and currently markets its products and services worldwide under the Boonton, Microlab, Noisecom and CommAgility brands. Serving the wireless, telecommunication, satellite, military, aerospace, and semiconductor industries, Wireless Telecom Group products enable innovation across a wide range of traditional and emerging wireless technologies. With a unique set of high-performance products including peak power meters, signal analyzers, signal processing modules, long-term evolution (“LTE”) physical layer (“PHY”) and stack software, power splitters and combiners, global positioning system (“GPS”) splitters and repeaters, public safety monitors, noise sources, and programmable noise generators, Wireless Telecom Group supports the development, testing, and deployment of wireless technologies around the globe.

 

The consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2019, the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income/(loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, the consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and the consolidated statement of shareholders’ equity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 have been prepared by the Company without audit. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., doing business as and operating under the trade name, Noisecom, and its wholly owned subsidiaries including Boonton Electronics Corporation (“Boonton”), Microlab/FXR LLC (“Microlab”), Wireless Telecommunications Ltd. and CommAgility Limited (“CommAgility”). All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company presents its operations in three reportable segments: (1) Network Solutions, (2) Test and Measurement and (3) Embedded Solutions. The Network Solutions segment is comprised of the operations of Microlab. The Test and Measurement segment is comprised of the operations of Boonton and Noisecom. The Embedded Solutions segment is comprised of the operations of CommAgility.

 

It is suggested that these interim consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and the notes thereto, included in the Company’s latest annual report (Form 10-K).

 

The Company’s fiscal periods are based on the calendar year. Except as otherwise specified, references to “second quarter(s)” or “three months” indicate the Company’s fiscal periods ending June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, and references to “year-end” indicate the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Consolidated Financial Statements

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements referred to above contain all necessary adjustments, consisting of normal accruals and recurring entries, which are necessary to fairly present the Company’s results for the interim periods being presented.

 

The accounting policies followed by the Company are set forth in Note 1 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Specific reference is made to that report since certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) have been reduced for interim periods in accordance with SEC rules.

 

The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2019.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation.

Concentration Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and trade accounts receivable. The majority of the Company’s cash balance is held outside of the United States.

 

Credit evaluations are performed on customers requiring credit over a certain amount. Credit risk is mitigated to a lesser extent through collateral such as letters of credit, bank guarantees or payment terms like cash in advance.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 , one customer accounted for approximately 34% and 33% of the Company’s consolidated revenues, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, one customer accounted for approximately 25% and 21% of the Company’s consolidated revenues, respectively. At June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, one customer accounted for 34% and 32% of consolidated gross accounts receivable, respectively.

 

Subsequent Events

 

Management has evaluated subsequent events and determined that there were no subsequent events or transactions requiring recognition or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements, and the notes thereto, through the date the financial statements were issued.

 

NOTE 2 – Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) , which created new accounting and reporting guidelines for leasing arrangements. The new guidance requires organizations that lease assets to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet related to the rights and obligations created by those leases, regardless of whether they are classified as finance or operating leases. Consistent with current guidance, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The guidance also requires new disclosures to help financial statement users better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.

 

The Company adopted the requirements of the new standard effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition method, which applies the provisions of the standard at the effective date without adjustment to the comparative periods presented. The Company adopted the following practical expedients and elected the following accounting policies related to this standard:

 

  Carry forward of historical lease classifications and accounting treatment;
  Short-term lease accounting policy election allowing lessees to not recognize right-of-use assets and liabilities for leases with a term of 12 months or less; and
  The option to not separate lease and non-lease components for certain equipment lease categories such as office printers and copiers.

 

Adoption of this standard resulted in the recognition of operating lease right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities of $1.9 million on the consolidated balance sheet as of January 1, 2019. The standard did not materially impact operating results or liquidity. Disclosures related to the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases are included in Note 3.

 

On June 20, 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU 2018-07 is intended to reduce cost and complexity and to improve financial reporting for share-based payments issued to nonemployees. This ASU expands the scope of ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation , which currently only includes share-based payments issued to employees, to also include share-based payments issued to nonemployees for goods and services. Consequently, the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees and employees will be substantially aligned. ASU 2018-07 supersedes ASC Subtopic 505-50, Equity - Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees . The amendments in this ASU are effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2019 and it did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

(UNAUDITED)

 

Except for the change in accounting policies for leases as a result of adopting Topic 842, there have been no other changes to our significant accounting policies as described in the 2018 Form 10-K that had a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related notes.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326) . ASU 2016-13 changes the impairment model for most financial assets and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured as amortized cost. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company plans to adopt the standard effective January 1, 2020. We are currently in the process of evaluating the effects of this pronouncement on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement, Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) . ASU 2018-13 eliminates, modifies and adds disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. We are currently in the process of evaluating the effects of this pronouncement on our consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – Leases

 

The Company’s lease agreements consist of building leases for its operating locations and office equipment leases for printers and copiers with lease terms that range from less than 12 months to 8 years. At inception, the Company determines if an arrangement contains a lease and whether that lease meets the classification criteria of a finance or operating lease. The Company’s leases for office equipment such as printers and copiers contain lease and non-lease components (i.e. maintenance). The Company accounts for lease and non-lease components of office equipment as a single lease component.

 

All of the Company’s leases are operating leases and are presented as right of use lease asset, short term lease liability and long term lease liability on the consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2019. These assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate. Short-term leases, which have an initial term of 12 months or less, are not recorded on the balance sheet.

 

Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in cost of revenues and general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income/(loss).

 

An initial right-of-use asset of $1.9 million was recognized as a non-cash asset addition with the adoption of the new lease accounting standard. Subsequent to adoption of the new standard there were no new right-of-use assets recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2019. Cash paid for amounts included in the present value of operating lease liabilities was $0.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019 and is included in operating cash flows.

 

Operating lease costs were $0.2 million and $0.4 million during the three and six months ended June 2019, respectively.

NOTE 4 – Revenue

 

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for promised goods or services. The Company’s performance obligations are satisfied either over time or at a point in time. Revenue from performance obligations that transferred at a point in time accounted for approximately 99% of the Company’s total revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. Revenue from performance obligations that transferred at a point in time accounted for approximately 95% of the Company’s total revenue for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Nature of Products and Services

 

Hardware

 

The Company generally has one performance obligation in its arrangements involving the sales of radio frequency solutions in the Network Solutions segment, digital signal processing hardware in the Embedded Solutions segment and noise generators and components and power meter and analyzers in the Test and Measurement segment. When the terms of a contract include the transfer of multiple products, each distinct product is identified as a separate performance obligation. Generally, satisfaction occurs when control of the promised goods is transferred to the customer in exchange for consideration in an amount for which we expect to be entitled. Generally, control is transferred when legal title of the asset moves from the Company to the customer. We sell our products to a customer based on a purchase order, and the shipping terms per each individual order are primarily used to satisfy the single performance obligation. However, in order to determine control has transferred to the customer, the Company also considers:

 

  when the Company has a present right to payment for the asset
  when the Company has transferred physical possession of the asset to the customer
  when the customer has the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the asset
  when the customer has accepted the asset

WIRELESS TELECOM GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

Software

 

Arrangements involving licenses of software in the Embedded Solutions segment may involve multiple performance obligations, most notably subsequent releases of the software. The Company has concluded that each software release in a multiple deliverable arrangement in the Embedded Solutions segment is a distinct performance obligation and, accordingly, transaction price is allocated to each release when the customer obtains control of the software.

 

Performance obligations that are not distinct at contract inception are combined. Specifically, with the Company’s sales of software, contracts that include customization may result in the combination of the customization services with the license as one distinct performance obligation and recognized over time. The duration of these performance obligations are typically one year or less.  

 

Services

 

Arrangements involving calibration and repair services in the Company’s Test and Measurement segment are generally considered a single performance obligation and are recognized as the services are rendered.

 

Shipping and Handling

 

Shipping and handling activities performed after the customer obtains control are accounted for as fulfillment activities and recognized as cost of revenues.

 

Significant Judgments

 

For the Company’s more complex software and services arrangements significant judgment is required in determining whether licenses and services are distinct performance obligations that should be accounted for separately, or are not distinct, and thus accounted for together. Further, in cases where we determine that performance obligations should be accounted for separately, judgment is required to determine the standalone selling price for each distinct performance obligation.

 

Certain of the Company’s shipments include a limited return right. In those cases the Company recognizes revenue net of expected returns.

 

Contract Balances

 

The timing of revenue recognition may differ from the timing of invoicing to customers and these timing differences result in contract assets or contract liabilities (deferred revenue) on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The Company records a contract asset when revenue is recognized prior to invoicing, or deferred revenue when revenue is recognized subsequent to invoicing. Contract assets are recorded in prepaid expenses and other current assets and were $0.1 million as of June 30, 2019 and $0.3 million as of December 31, 2018. Deferred revenue is $0.3 million and $0.1 million as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

Disaggregated Revenue

 

We disaggregate our revenue from contracts with customers by product family and geographic location for each of our segments as we believe it best depicts how the nature, timing and uncertainty of our revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors. See details in the tables below (in thousands).

NOTE 5 – Acquisition of CommAgility

 

On February 17, 2017, Wireless Telecommunications, Ltd. (the “Acquisition Subsidiary”), a company incorporated in England and Wales which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., completed the acquisition of all the issued shares in CommAgility from CommAgility’s founders. The Acquisition was completed pursuant to the terms of a Share Purchase Agreement, dated February 17, 2017, and entered into by and among the Company, the Acquisition Subsidiary and the founders. The Company paid $11.3 million in cash on acquisition date and issued 3,487,528 shares of newly issued Company common stock (“Consideration Shares”) with an acquisition date fair value of $6.0 million. In addition to the acquisition date cash purchase price, the sellers were paid an additional $2.5 million in the form of deferred purchase price installments beginning in March 2017 through January 2019 and were paid an additional purchase price adjustment based on working capital and cash levels of $1.4 million. Lastly, the sellers earned $1.5 million in contingent consideration as a result of meeting certain financial targets for the year ended December 31, 2018. The contingent consideration was paid in March 2019. Approximately $0.7 million of the contingent consideration payment is classified as cash used by operating activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended June 2019 and approximately $0.8 million is classified as cash used for financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended June 2019 in accordance with ASU 2016-15 Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”). Under ASU 2016-15 the portion of the cash payment up to the acquisition date fair value of the contingent consideration liability (including measurement period adjustments) is classified as a financing outflow, and the amounts paid in excess of the acquisition date fair value of that liability will be classified as operating outflows.

 

Pursuant to the Share Purchase Agreement, 2,092,516 of the Consideration Shares were subject to forfeiture and return to the Company if (a) 2017 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, generated by CommAgility was less than £2.4 million; or (b) 2018 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, generated by CommAgility was less than £2.4 million (in each case as determined by an audit of CommAgility conducted by the accountants of the Acquisition Subsidiary in accordance with the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement). In March 2018 all consideration shares, which are valued at $3.6 million, were forfeited as the 2017 EBITDA threshold was not achieved. The forfeited shares are recorded as treasury stock in the consolidated statement of shareholders’ equity as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

The total purchase price for the CommAgility acquisition, including the final contingent consideration payment, is $14.6 million which is net of cash acquired. There are no further purchase price obligations under the Stock Purchase Agreement as of June 30, 2019.

 

NOTE 6 – Income Taxes

 

The Company records deferred taxes in accordance with ASC 740, “ Accounting for Income Taxes .” ASC 740 requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company establishes a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company periodically assesses the value of its deferred tax assets and determines the necessity for a valuation allowance.

 

Realization of the Company’s deferred tax assets is dependent upon the Company generating sufficient taxable income in the appropriate tax jurisdictions in future years to obtain benefit from the reversal of net deductible temporary differences and from utilization of net operating losses. The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable is subject to adjustment in future periods if estimates of future taxable income are changed.

 

As of June 30, 2019 the Company’s net deferred tax asset of $5.1 million is net of a valuation allowance of $6.7 million which is associated with the Company’s foreign net operating loss carryforward from an inactive foreign entity, state net operating loss carryforward and a state research and development credit.

 

The effective rate of income tax benefit of 31.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was higher than the statutory rates in the United States and United Kingdom primarily due to the impact of global intangible low-taxed income or “GILTI” related to our controlled foreign corporation offset by research and development deductions in the UK.

 

The effective rate of income tax provision of 45.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was higher than the statutory rates in the United States and United Kingdom primarily due to the impact of global intangible low-taxed income or “GILTI” related to our controlled foreign corporation offset by research and development deductions in the UK and non-qualified stock option deductions in the U.S. Due to the Company’s federal and state net operating loss carryforwards the impact of GILTI did not result in a cash tax charge.

 

NOTE 7 – Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period and, when dilutive, potential shares from stock options using the treasury stock method, unvested restricted shares and the weighted-average number of restricted stock units outstanding for the period. Shares from stock options are included in the diluted earnings per share calculation only when options exercise prices are lower than the average market value of the common shares for the period presented. In periods with a net loss, the basic loss per share equals the diluted loss per share as all common stock equivalents are excluded from the per share calculation because they are anti-dilutive. In accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share”, the following table reconciles basic shares outstanding to fully diluted shares outstanding.

In connection with the acquisition of CommAgility, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A. (the “Lender”) on February 16, 2017 (the “Credit Facility”), which provided for a term loan in the aggregate principal amount of $0.8 million (the “Term Loan”) and an asset based revolving loan (the “Revolver”), which is subject to a Borrowing Base Calculation (as defined in the Credit Facility), of up to a maximum availability of $9.0 million (“Revolver Commitment Amount”). The borrowing base is calculated as 85% of eligible accounts receivable and inventory, as defined, subject to certain caps and limits. The borrowing base is calculated on a monthly basis. The proceeds of the term loan and revolver were used to finance the acquisition of CommAgility.

In connection with the issuance of the Credit Facility, the Company paid lender and legal fees of $0.2 million which were primarily related to the Revolver and are capitalized and presented as other current and non-current assets in the consolidated balance sheets. These costs are recognized as additional interest expense over the term of the related debt instrument using the straight line method which approximates the effective interest method.

 

The Company must repay the Term Loan in installments of $38,000 per quarter due on the first day of each fiscal quarter beginning April 1, 2017 and continuing until the term loan maturity date, on which the remaining balance is due in a final installment. The Term Loan and Revolver were both scheduled to mature on November 16, 2019. On February 26, 2019, the Company entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Credit Facility which extends the termination date of the Revolver from November 16, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

 

The Term and Revolver Loans bear interest at the LIBOR rate plus a margin. The margin on the outstanding balance of the Company’s Term Loans and Revolver Loans were fixed at 3.50% and 3.00% per annum, respectively, through September 30, 2017. Thereafter, the margins were subject to increase or decrease by Lender on the first day of each of the Borrowers’ fiscal quarters based upon the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Facility) as of the most recently ended fiscal quarter falling into one of three levels. If the Company’s Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio is greater than or equal to 1.25 to 1.00, a margin of 3.25% and 2.75%, respectively, is added to LIBOR rate with a step up to 3.50% and 3.00%, respectively, if the ratio is greater than or equal 1.00 to 1.00 but less than 1.25 to 1.00 and another step up to 3.75% and 3.25%, respectively, if the ratio is less than 1.00 to 1.00. The Company is also required to pay a commitment fee on the unused commitments under the Revolver at a rate equal to 0.50% per annum and early termination fee of (a) 2% of the Revolver Commitment Amount and Term Loan if termination occurs before the first anniversary of the Credit Facility or (b) 1% of the Revolver Commitment Amount and Term Loan if termination occurs after the first anniversary of the Credit Facility but before the second anniversary of the Credit Facility. The Company’s interest rate plus margin as of June 30, 2019 on the Credit Facility was 5.25% and 5.75% for the Revolver and Term Loan, respectively. The Company’s interest rate plus margin as of December 31, 2018 on the Credit Facility was 5.38% and 5.88% for the Revolver and Term Loan, respectively.

 

The Credit Facility is secured by liens on substantially all of the Company’s and its domestic subsidiaries’ assets including a pledge of 66 1/3% of the equity interests in the Company’s Foreign Subsidiaries (as defined in the Credit Facility). The Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants for a transaction of this type, including, among others, the provision of annual, quarterly and monthly financial statements and compliance certificates, maintenance of property, insurance, compliance with laws and environmental matters, restrictions on incurrence of indebtedness, granting of liens, making investments and acquisitions, paying dividends, entering into affiliate transactions and asset sales. Events of default under the Credit Facility include but are not limited to: failure to pay obligations when due, breach or failure of any covenant, insolvency or bankruptcy, materially misleading representations or warranties, occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Credit Facility) or occurrence of conditions that have a Material Adverse Effect (as defined in the Credit Facility).

 

As of June 30, 2019, and the date hereof, the Company is in compliance with the covenants of the Credit Facility.

 

NOTE 10 - Accounting for Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company’s results for the three and six month period ended June 30, 2019 includes $0.2 million and $0.4 million related to stock based compensation expense, respectively. Such amounts have been included in the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income/(loss) within general and administrative expenses in operating expenses. The Company accounts for forfeitures when they occur.

 

Incentive Compensation Plan

 

In 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors and shareholders approved the 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Initial 2012 Plan”), which provides for the grant of equity, including restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, non-qualified stock options and incentive stock options in compliance with the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, to employees, officers, directors, consultants and advisors of the Company who are expected to contribute to the Company’s future growth and success. When originally approved, the Initial 2012 Plan provided for the grant of awards relating to 2 million shares of common stock, plus those shares subject to awards previously issued under the Company’s 2000 Stock Option Plan that expire, are canceled or are terminated after adoption of the Initial 2012 Plan without having been exercised in full and would have been available for subsequent grants under the 2000 Stock Option Plan. In June 2014, the Company’s shareholders approved the Amended and Restated 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2012 Plan”) allowing for an additional 1.6 million shares of the Company’s common stock to be available for future grants under the 2012 Plan. The 2012 Plan provides that if awards are forfeited, expire or otherwise terminate without issuance of the shares underlying the awards, or if the award does not result in issuance of all or part of the shares underlying the award, the unissued shares are again available for awards under the 2012 Plan. As a result of certain award forfeitures and cancellations, as of June 30, 2019, there are approximately 1.5 million shares available for issuance under the 2012 Plan.

All service-based (time vesting) options granted have ten-year terms from the date of grant and typically vest annually and become fully exercisable after a maximum of five years. However, vesting conditions are determined on a grant by grant basis. Performance-based options granted have ten-year terms and vest and become fully exercisable when determinable performance targets are achieved. Performance targets are approved by the Company’s compensation committee of the Board of Directors. Under the 2012 Plan, options may be granted to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock exercisable only at prices equal to or above the fair market value on the date of the grant.

 

Restricted Common Stock Awards

 

On January 11, 2019 the Company granted 95,000 restricted stock awards to employees under the 2012 Plan. The awards vest in equal annual installments over a three year period or upon a change in control, as defined in the 2012 Plan, as long as the grantee continues to provide service to the Company until the applicable vesting date. The grant date fair value of the restricted stock awards was $1.56 per share.

 

Service-Based Stock Option Awards

 

On January 11, 2019 the Company granted 15,000 incentive stock options. The stock options vest in equal annual installments over a three year period or upon a change in control, as defined in the 2012 Plan, as long as the grantee continues to provide service to the Company until the applicable vesting date.

NOTE 13 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Legal Proceeding

 

On June 5, 2019 Harris Corporation (“Harris”) filed a request for arbitration before the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the terms of an executed purchase order, statement of work and software license agreement (collectively referred to as “Agreements”) with CommAgility entered into in 2014. Harris claims that CommAgility breached the Agreements by offering for sale, marketing, and promoting techniques, capabilities, products and services that incorporate Work Product, as defined in the Agreements, owned by Harris. Harris claims that CommAgility has caused Harris significant monetary damages, the sum of which cannot be determined until such time as discovery has been conducted, but is estimated by Harris to be less than $250,000. Harris is also seeking an injunction against CommAgility’s use of the Work Product which includes rights to certain technology used for air-to-ground communications. The Company believes the claims are without merit and intends to defend all of the claims vigorously. The Company has not accrued any amounts in respect of this matter and cannot estimate the possible loss, if any, that the Company may incur with respect to it.

 

The ultimate outcome of this matter is unknown but, in the opinion of management, we do not believe this proceeding will have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition, cash flows or future results of operations. The Company expects a portion of the legal expenses and monetary damages, if any, to be covered by our professional indemnity insurance policy.

 

There have been no other material changes in our commitments and contingencies and risks and uncertainties as of June 30, 2019 from that previously disclosed in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our interim consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements included in Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements contained in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Highlights from the Second Quarter:

 

Net consolidated revenues of $13.5 million. Revenue increase at Embedded Solutions offset by modest declines in Network Solutions and Test and Measurement.

 

Consolidated gross profit margin of 45.4% for the second quarter 2019 comparable with the prior year.

 

Consolidated operating income of $100,000 for the second quarter 2019 as compared to $33,000 for the prior year period.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Three Months Ended June 30, 2019 Compared with Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

 

Net Revenues (in thousands)

 

    Three months ended June 30  
    Revenue     % of Revenue     Change  
    2019     2018     2019     2018     Amount     Pct.  
Network Solutions   $ 5,575     $ 5,636       41.3 %     42.0 %   $ (61 )     -1.1 %
Test and Measurement     3,192       3,534       23.6 %     26.4 %     (342 )     -9.7 %
Embedded Solutions     4,741       4,244       35.1 %     31.6 %     497       11.7 %
Total Net Revenues   $ 13,508     $ 13,414       100.0 %     100.0 %   $ 94       0.7 %

 

Net consolidated revenue increased $0.1 million or almost 1% over the prior year period due primarily to higher Embedded Solutions sales of digital signal processing hardware to our largest customer. This was offset by lower Test and Measurement revenue as compared to the prior year period due primarily to lower power sensor revenues as a result of lower government orders. Network Solutions revenue was nearly flat compared to the prior year period.

 

Gross Profit (in thousands)

 

    Three months ended June 30  
    Gross Profit     Gross Profit %     Change  
    2019     2018     2019     2018     Amount     Pct.

Test and Measurement     1,775       1,815       55.6 %     51.4 %     (40 )     -2.2 %
Embedded Solutions     1,956       1,887       41.3 %     44.5 %     69       3.7 %
Total Gross Profit   $ 6,133     $ 6,170       45.4 %     46.0 %   $ (37 )     -0.6 %

 

Consolidated gross profit margin for the second quarter 2019 of 45.4% is comparable to the prior year period gross profit margin of 46.0%. Test and Measurement gross profit margin increased from 51.4% in the prior year period to 55.6% on favorable product mix and various cost reduction activities related to overhead. Embedded Solutions gross profit margin decreased from 44.5% in the prior year period to 41.3% as a result of higher margin software and services revenue in 2018 and a higher percentage of lower margin hardware revenue in 2019. Network Solutions gross profit margin was flat compared to the prior year period.
