NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements of Kopin Corporation as of March 26, 2022 and for the three month periods ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 are unaudited and include all adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the results of operations for the periods then ended. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2021. The results of the Company’s operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of the Company’s operations for any other interim period or for a full fiscal year. As used in this report, the terms “we”, “us”, “our”, “Kopin” and the “Company” mean Kopin Corporation and its subsidiaries, unless the context indicates another meaning.

 

The Company’s products are targeted towards the defense and industrial/enterprise and consumer wearable markets. The Company’s revenues from sales of products into the consumer market include sales of its organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays. The Company’s OLED products are relatively new and sales are sporadic. Management believes the enterprise wearable market is still developing and cannot predict how long it will take to develop or if the Company’s products will be accepted. In addition, the Company’s current strategy is to continue to invest in research and development, even during unprofitable periods, which may result in the Company continuing to incur net losses and negative cash flows from operations. If the Company is unable to achieve and maintain positive cash flows and profitability in the foreseeable future, its financial condition may ultimately be materially adversely affected such that management may be required to reduce operating expenses, including investments in research and development, or raise additional capital. While there can be no assurance the Company will be able to successfully reduce operating expenses or raise additional capital, management believes its historical success in managing cash flows and obtaining capital will continue in the foreseeable future.

 

2. ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

 

Accounting Standards Issued But Not Yet Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”), which requires measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for financial assets held. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10 that has extended the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for Smaller Reporting Entities to fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating ASU 2016-13 and its impact on our consolidated financial statements.

3. CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS AND MARKETABLE DEBT SECURITIES

 

The Company considers all highly liquid, short-term debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Marketable debt securities consist primarily of commercial paper, medium-term corporate notes, and U.S. government and agency backed securities. The Company classifies these marketable debt securities as available-for-sale at fair value in “Marketable debt securities, at fair value.” The Company records the amortization of premium and accretion of discounts on marketable debt securities in the results of operations.

 

The Company uses the specific identification method as a basis for determining cost and calculating realized gains and losses with respect to marketable debt securities. The gross gains and losses realized related to sales and maturities of marketable debt securities were not material during the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021.

 

Investments in available-for-sale marketable debt securities were as follows at March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021:

 

    Amortized Cost     Unrealized (Losses) Gains     Fair Value  
    2022     2021     2022     2021     2022     2021  
U.S. government and agency backed securities   $ 2,000,006     $ 1,000,128     $ (49,326 )   $ 522     $ 1,950,680     $ 1,000,650  
Corporate debt and certificates of deposit     2,500,024       1,500,000       384       6,885       2,500,408       1,506,885  
Total   $ 4,500,030     $ 2,500,128     $ (48,942 )   $ 7,407     $ 4,451,088     $ 2,507,535  

 

The contractual maturity of the Company’s marketable debt securities was as follows at March 26, 2022:

 

    Less than One year     One to Five years     Total  
U.S. government and agency backed securities   $     $ 1,950,680     $ 1,950,680  
Corporate debt     1,998,263       502,145       2,500,408  
Total   $ 1,998,263     $ 2,452,825     $ 4,451,088

4. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Financial instruments are categorized as Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 based upon the method by which their fair value is computed. An investment is categorized as Level 1 when its fair value is based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date. An investment is categorized as Level 2 if its fair market value is based on quoted market prices for similar assets in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets that are not active, based on observable inputs such as interest rates, yield curves, or derived from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means. An investment is categorized as Level 3 if its fair value is based on assumptions developed by the Company about what a market participant would use in pricing the assets.

 

The following table details the fair value measurements of the Company’s financial assets:

 

          Fair Value Measurement at March 26, 2022 Using:  
    Total     Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
Cash and cash equivalents   $ 21,867,492     $ 21,867,492     $     $  
U.S. government and agency-backed securities     1,950,680             1,950,680        
Corporate debt     1,501,745             1,501,745        
Certificates of deposit     998,663       998,663              
Equity investments     9,553,628       244,549             9,309,079  
    $ 35,872,208     $ 23,110,704     $ 3,452,425     $ 9,309,079  

 

          Fair Value Measurement at December 25, 2021 Using:  
    Total     Level 1     Level 2     Level 3  
Cash and cash equivalents   $ 26,787,931     $ 26,787,931     $     $  
U.S. government and agency- backed securities     1,000,650             1,000,650        
Corporate debt     1,506,885             1,506,885        
Equity investments     4,912,022       296,173             4,615,849  
    $ 34,207,488     $ 27,084,104     $ 2,507,535     $ 4,615,849  

 

Transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy are reported at the beginning of the reporting period in which they occur. Changes in Level 3 investments were as follows:

 

    December 25, 2021     Net unrealized gains     Purchases, issuances and settlements     Transfers in and or out of Level 3     March 26, 2022  
Equity Investments   $ 4,912,022     $ 4,641,606     $     $     $ 9,553,628  

 

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value because of their short-term nature. If accrued liabilities were carried at fair value, these would be classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

 

Marketable Debt Securities

 

Corporate debt consists of floating rate notes with a maturity that may be over multiple years but has interest rates that are reset every three months based on the then-current three-month London Interbank Offering Rate (“three-month Libor”). The Company validates the fair market values of the financial instruments above by using discounted cash flow models, obtaining independent pricing of the securities or through the use of a model that incorporates the three-month Libor, the credit default swap rate of the issuer and the bid and ask price spread of the same or similar investments which are traded on several markets.

 

Equity Investments

 

From 2017 through 2019, the Company made several equity investments in a customer. In the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company reviewed the financial condition and other factors of the customer and, as a result, recorded an impairment charge of $5.2 million to reduce its investment in the customer to zero as of December 28, 2019. In the first quarter of 2022 the customer raised additional equity capital and based on an observable price change of the customer’s share prices and terms of the equity sale the Company remeasured the fair market value of its investment and recorded a gain of $4.7 million. As of March 26, 2022, the Company owned an approximate 2.3% interest in this investment.

 

During the three months ended March 26, 2022, the Company recorded a less than $0.1 million unrealized loss on an equity interest in a company due to a fluctuation in the foreign exchange rate.

5. INVENTORY

 

Inventories are stated at standard cost adjusted to approximate the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or net realizable value and consist of the following at March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021:

 

    March 26, 2022     December 25, 2021  
Raw materials   $ 5,629,085     $ 5,044,334  
Work-in-process     984,241       1,032,519  
Finished goods     519,291       504,286  
Total   $ 7,132,617     $ 6,581,139  

 

6. NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic net loss per share is computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period less any unvested restricted shares. Diluted net loss per share is calculated using weighted-average shares outstanding and contingently issuable shares, less weighted-average shares reacquired during the period. The net outstanding shares are adjusted for the dilutive effect of shares issuable upon the assumed conversion of the Company’s common stock equivalents, which consist of unvested restricted stock.

 

The following were not included in weighted-average common shares outstanding-diluted because they are anti-dilutive or performance conditions have not been met at the end of the period:

 

    Three months ended     Three months ended  
    March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Non-vested restricted common stock     1,953,171       2,490,717  

 

11

 

 

7. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY AND STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Registered sale of equity securities

 

During the three months ended March 27, 2021, we sold 2.4 million shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $16 million (average of $6.66 per share), before deducting broker expenses paid by us of $0.5 million, pursuant to our At-The-Market Equity Offering Sales Agreement dated as of February 8, 2019 (the “Previous ATM Agreement”) with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated (“Stifel”), as agent. The Previous ATM Agreement has since terminated pursuant to its terms as a result of the sale of all the shares subject to such agreement. On March 5, 2021 the Company entered into a new At-The-Market Equity Offering Sales Agreement dated as of March 5, 2021 (the “Current ATM Agreement”) with Stifel under which the Company may sell up to $50 million of its common stock.

 

Non-Vested Restricted Common Stock

 

The fair value of non-vested restricted common stock awards is generally the market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The non-vested restricted common stock awards require the employee to fulfill certain obligations, including remaining employed by the Company for one, two or four years (the vesting period) and in certain cases also require meeting either performance criteria or the Company’s stock achieving a certain price. For non-vested restricted common stock awards that solely require the recipient to remain employed with the Company, the stock compensation expense is amortized over the anticipated service period. For non-vested restricted common stock awards that require the achievement of performance criteria, the Company reviews the probability of achieving the performance goals on a periodic basis. If the Company determines that it is probable that the performance criteria will be achieved, the amount of compensation cost derived for the performance goal is amortized over the anticipated service period. If the performance criteria are not met, no compensation cost is recognized and any previously recognized compensation cost is reversed.

 

Restricted stock activity for the three month period ended March 26, 2022 was as follows:

 

    Shares     Weighted Average Grant Fair Value  
Balance, December 25, 2021     2,077,592     $ 2.90  
Granted     37,100       2.36  
Forfeited     (7,100 )     4.40  
Vested     (154,421 )     2.73  
Balance, March 26, 2022     1,953,171     $ 2.90

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The following table summarizes stock-based compensation expense within each of the categories below as it relates to non-vested restricted common stock awards for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 (no tax benefits were recognized):

 

    Three Months Ended     Three Months Ended  
    March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Cost of product revenues   $ 66,668     $ 133,784  
Research and development     147,379       94,053  
Selling, general and administrative     442,026       2,382,329  
Total   $ 656,073     $ 2,610,166  

 

Unrecognized compensation expense for non-vested restricted common stock as of March 26, 2022 totaled $3.7 million and is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately three years.

 

8. ACCRUED WARRANTY

 

The Company typically warrants its products against defect for 12 to 18 months, however, for certain products a customer may purchase an extended warranty. A provision for estimated future costs and estimated returns for credit relating to such warranty is recorded in the period when product is shipped and revenue is recognized and is updated as additional information becomes available. The Company’s estimate of future costs to satisfy warranty obligations is based primarily on historical warranty expense experienced and a provision for potential future product failures. Changes in the accrued warranty for the three months ended March 26, 2022 were as follows:

 

         
Balance, December 25, 2021   $ 517,000  
Additions     725,000  
Claims     (272,000 )
Balance, March 26, 2022   $ 970,000  

 

Extended Warranties

 

Deferred revenue represents the purchase of extended warranties by the Company’s customers. The Company recognizes revenue from an extended warranty on the straight-line method over the life of the extended warranty, which is typically 12 to 15 months beyond the standard 12 to 18-month warranty. The Company classifies the current portion of deferred revenue under Other accrued liabilities in its condensed consolidated balance sheets. At March 26, 2022, the Company had less than $0.1 million of deferred revenue related to extended warranties.

9. INCOME TAXES

 

The Company recorded a provision for income taxes of less than $0.1 million in each of the three months ended March 26, 2022 and the three months ended March 27, 2021. As of March 26, 2022, the Company has available for tax purposes U.S. federal net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”) of approximately $160.3 million expiring 2022 through 2037 and $76.0 million that have an unlimited carryover period. The Company has recognized a full valuation allowance on its domestic and certain foreign net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of realization of such assets. The Company recognizes both accrued interest and penalties related to its uncertain tax positions related to intercompany loan interest and potential transfer pricing exposure related to its foreign subsidiaries.

 

10. CONTRACT ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

 

Contract assets include unbilled amounts typically resulting from sales under contracts when the cost-to-cost method of revenue recognition is utilized and revenue recognized from customer arrangements, including licensing, exceeds the amount billed to the customer, and right to payment is not just subject to the passage of time. Amounts may not exceed their net realizable value. Contract assets are generally classified as current. The Company classifies the noncurrent portion of contract assets under other assets in its condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Contract liabilities consist of advance payments and billings in excess of cost incurred and deferred revenue.

 

Net contract assets (liabilities) consisted of the following:

 

    March 26, 2022     December 25, 2021     $ Change     % Change  
Contract assets—current   $ 2,552,201     $ 2,299,392     $ 252,809       11 %
Contract liabilities and billings in excess of revenues earned     (1,756,202 )     (4,063,031 )     2,306,829       (57 )%
Contract liabilities—noncurrent     (10,371 )     (20,664 )     10,293       (50 )%
Net contract assets (liabilities)   $ 785,628     $ (1,784,303 )   $ 2,569,931       (144 )%

 

The $2.6 million increase in the Company’s net contract assets (liabilities) at March 26, 2022 as compared to December 25, 2021 was primarily due to recording of revenue earned against advanced payments.

 

In the three months ended March 26, 2022, the Company recognized revenue of $2.9 million related to our contract liabilities at December 25, 2021. In the three months ended March 27, 2021, the Company recognized revenue of $1.2 million related to our contract liabilities at December 26, 2020.

 

The Company did not recognize impairment losses on our contract assets in the three months ended March 26, 2022 or March 27, 2021.

 

Performance Obligations

 

The Company’s revenue recognition related to performance obligations that were satisfied at a point in time and over time were as follows:

 

    Three months ended     Three months ended  
    March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Point in time     20 %     32 %
Over time     80 %     68 %

 

Remaining performance obligations represent the transaction price of orders for which work has not been performed and excludes unexercised contract options and potential orders under ordering-type contracts (e.g., indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (“IDIQ”)). As of March 26, 2022, the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations was $29.3 million which the Company expects to recognize over the next 12 months. The remaining performance obligations represent amounts to be earned under government contracts, which are subject to cancellation.

11. LEASES

 

The Company enters into operating leases primarily for: real estate, including for manufacturing, engineering, research, administration and sales facilities, and information technology (“IT”) equipment. At March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021, the Company did not have any finance leases. Approximately all of our future lease commitments, and related lease liability, relate to the Company’s real estate leases. Some of the Company’s leases include options to extend or terminate the lease.

 

The components of lease expense were as follows:

 

    Three months ended     Three months ended  
    March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Operating lease cost   $ 249,503     $ 290,884  
                 

 

At March 26, 2022, the Company’s future lease payments under non-cancellable leases were as follows:

 

         
2022 (excluding the three months ended March 26, 2022)   $ 645,519  
2023     867,756  
2024     769,923  
2025     604,000  
2026     604,000  
Thereafter     805,333  
Total future lease payments     4,296,531  
Less imputed interest     (691,239 )
Total   $ 3,605,292  

 

The Company’s lease liabilities recognized in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet at March 26, 2022 were as follows:

 

    March 26, 2022  
Operating lease liabilities–current   $ 658,298  
Operating lease liabilities–noncurrent     2,946,994  
Total lease liabilities   $ 3,605,292  

 

Supplemental cash flow information related to leases was as follows:

 

    Three months ended  
    March 26, 2022  
Cash paid for amounts included in the measurement of operating lease liabilities   $ 248,754  
         

 

Other information related to leases was as follows:

 

    March 26, 2022  
Weighted Average Discount Rate–Operating Leases     5.92 %
Weighted Average Remaining Lease Term–Operating Leases (in years)     5.53

12. SEGMENTS AND DISAGGREGATION OF REVENUE

 

We continually monitor and review our segment reporting structure in accordance with authoritative guidance to determine if any changes have occurred that would affect our reportable segments. We report under one segment, as our Chief Executive Officer, who is our chief operating decision maker (“CODM”), reviews results on a total company basis.

 

Total long-lived assets by country at March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021 were:

 

Total Long-lived Assets (in thousands)   March 26, 2022     December 25, 2021  
U.S.   $ 5,287     $ 5,381  
United Kingdom     226       264  
Japan     57       72  
Total   $ 5,570     $ 5,717  

 

We disaggregate our revenue from contracts with customers by geographic location and by display application, as we believe it best depicts how the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of our revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors.

 

During the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, the Company derived its sales from the following geographies:

 

    March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
(In thousands, except percentages)   Revenue     % of Total     Revenue     % of Total  
United States   $ 9,297       80 %   $ 8,180       70 %
Asia-Pacific     2,144       19       3,275       28  
Europe     137       1       221       2  
Total Revenues   $ 11,578       100 %   $ 11,676       100 %

 

During the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, the Company derived its sales from the following display applications:

 

(In thousands)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021

13. LITIGATION

 

The Company may engage in legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and it is not possible to predict the ultimate outcome of such matters and our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows could be affected in any particular period.

 

BlueRadios, Inc. v. Kopin Corporation, Civil Action No. 16-02052-JLK (D. Col.):

 

On August 12, 2016, BlueRadios, Inc. (“BlueRadios”) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, alleging that the Company breached a contract between it and BlueRadios concerning an alleged joint venture between the Company and BlueRadios to design, develop and commercialize micro-display products with embedded wireless technology referred to as “Golden-i,” breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing associated with that contract, breached its fiduciary duty to BlueRadios, and misappropriated trade secrets owned by BlueRadios in violation of Colorado law (C.R.S. § 7-74-104(4)) and the Defend Trade Secrets Act (18 U.S.C. § 1836(b)(1)). BlueRadios further alleges that the Company was unjustly enriched by its alleged misconduct, BlueRadios is entitled to an accounting to determine the amount of profits obtained by the Company as a result of its alleged misconduct, and the inventorship on at least ten patents or patent applications owned by the Company need to be corrected to list BlueRadios’ employees as inventors and thereby list BlueRadios as co-assignees of the patents. BlueRadios seeks monetary, declaratory, and injunctive relief, including for alleged non-payment of engineering retainer fees.

 

On October 11, 2016, the Company filed its Answer and Affirmative Defenses. The parties completed expert depositions on November 15, 2019. On December 2, 2019, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment requesting the Court dismiss counts 2-7 in their entirety and counts 1 and 8 in part. BlueRadios also filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment alleging it is the co-owner of U.S. Patent No. 8,909,296. Responses to the Motions for Partial Summary Judgment were filed on January 15, 2020, and replies were filed on February 19, 2020. On September 25, 2020, the Court denied BlueRadios’ Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. A trial date has not yet been set by the Court. The Company has not concluded a loss from this matter is probable; therefore, we have not recorded an accrual for litigation or claims related to this matter for the period ended March 26, 2022. The Company will continue to evaluate information as it becomes known and will record an estimate for losses at the time or times when it is both probable that a loss has been incurred and the amount of the loss is reasonably estimable.

 

14. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

The Company may from time to time enter into agreements with stockholders, affiliates and other companies engaged in certain aspects of the display, electronics, optical and software industries as part of our business strategy. In addition, the wearable computing product market is relatively new and there may be other technologies the Company needs to purchase from affiliates to enhance its product offering.

 

During the three-month periods ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, the Company had the following transactions with related parties:

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

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which are subject to the safe harbor created by such sections. Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “could,” “would,” “seeks,” “estimates,” and variations of such words and similar expressions, and the negatives thereof, are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such “forward-looking statements,” which speak only as of the date made, and advise readers that these forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties, estimates, and assumptions by us that are difficult to predict. Various factors, some of which are beyond our control, could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements. All such forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, and whether made by us or on our behalf, are expressly qualified by these cautionary statements and any other cautionary statements which may accompany the forward-looking statements. In addition, we disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this report, except as may otherwise be required by the federal securities laws.

 

We have identified the following important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in our forward-looking statements. Such factors may be in addition to the risks described in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors;” Part II, Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations; and other parts of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2021. These factors include: the extent of the impact of the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic on our business and operations, and the economic and societal disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic; our ability to prosecute and defend our proprietary technology aggressively or successfully; our ability to retain personnel with experience and expertise relevant to our business; our ability to invest in research and development to achieve profitability even during periods when we are not profitable; our ability to continue to introduce new products in our target markets; our ability to source semiconductor components and other raw materials used in the manufacturing of our products; our ability to generate revenue growth and positive cash flow, and reach profitability; the strengthening of the U.S. dollar and its effects on the price of our products in foreign markets; the impact of new regulations and customer demands relating to conflict minerals; our ability to obtain a competitive advantage in the wearable technologies market through our extensive portfolio of patents, trade secrets and non-patented know-how; our ability to grow within our targeted markets; the importance of small form factor displays in the development of defense, consumer, and industrial products such as thermal weapon sights, safety equipment, virtual and augmented reality gaming, training and simulation products and metrology tools; the suitability of our properties for our needs for the foreseeable future; our expectation not to pay cash dividends for the foreseeable future and to retain earnings for the development of our businesses; our need to achieve and maintain positive cash flow and profitability; and our expectation that if we do not achieve and maintain positive cash flow and profitability; our financial condition will ultimately be materially adversely affected, and we will be required to reduce expenses, including our investments in research and development or raise additional capital and our ability to support our operations and capital needs for at least the next twelve months through our available cash resources.

 

Overview

 

We are a leading developer, manufacturer and seller of miniature displays and optical lenses (our “components”) for sale as individual displays, components, modules or higher-level subassemblies. We also license our intellectual property through technology license agreements. Our component products are used in highly demanding high-resolution portable defense, enterprise and consumer electronic applications, training and simulation equipment and 3D metrology equipment. Our products enable our customers to develop and market an improved generation of products for these target applications.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2021 and our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our interim period results of operations and period-to-period comparisons of such results may not be indicative of our future operating results. Additionally, we use a fiscal calendar, that may result in differences in the number of workdays in the current and comparable prior interim periods and could affect period-to-period comparisons. The following discussion of comparative results of operations among periods should be viewed in this context.

 

Revenues. For the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, our revenues by display application, which include product sales and amounts earned from research and development contracts (“R&D”), were as follows:

 

    Three months ended     Three months ended  
(In thousands)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Defense   $ 4,757     $ 4,993  
Industrial     1,530       2,041  
Consumer     220       534  
R&D     4,908       3,561  
License and royalties     163       547  
Total Revenues   $ 11,578     $ 11,676  

 

Sales of our products for Defense applications include systems used by the military both in the field and for training and simulation. The decrease in Defense applications revenues in the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 was primarily due to decrease in volume shipments for our thermal weapon sight systems for soldiers. Our reduced revenue in the first quarter of 2022 was primarily a result of lower production caused by a shortage of certain components.

 

Industrial applications revenue represents customers who purchase our display products for use in 3D metrology equipment and headsets used for applications in manufacturing, distribution and public safety. Our 3D metrology customers are primarily located in Asia and sell to Asian contract manufacturers who use the 3D metrology machines for quality control purposes. The decrease in Industrial applications revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 was primarily due to a decline in sales of products for 3D metrology equipment, which was caused by a shortage of certain components.

 

Our displays for Consumer applications are used primarily in thermal imaging products, recreational rifle and hand-held scopes and drone racing headsets. The decrease in Consumer applications revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 was primarily due to lower sales of our organic light emitting diode (“OLED”) products. Our OLED products are relatively new and our sales are typically for design-in purposes at this time. Therefore, stable recurring revenues have not been achieved.

 

R&D revenues increased in the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 primarily due to increases in funding for U.S. defense programs.

 

International revenues represented 20% and 30% of total revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, respectively. We categorize our revenues as either domestic or international based upon the delivery destination of our product. For example, if the customer is located in Asia or if a U.S. customer has its Asian contract manufacturer order product from us and we deliver the product to Asia, then we categorize both these sales as international. In addition, if we earn royalties on sales from a customer the royalties are categorized as domestic or international based on how the product revenues are categorized. The decrease in international revenues was a result of a decrease in sales of products for 3D metrology equipment and industrial wearable headset applications. Our international sales are primarily denominated in U.S. currency. Consequently, a strengthening of the U.S. dollar could increase the price in local currencies of our products in foreign markets and make our products relatively more expensive than competitors’ products that are denominated in local currencies, which could lead to a reduction in sales or profitability in those foreign markets. We have not taken any protective measures against exchange rate fluctuations, such as purchasing hedging instruments with respect to such fluctuations, because of the historically stable exchange rate between the British Pound Sterling (the functional currency of our U.K. subsidiary) and the U.S. dollar. Foreign currency translation impact on our results, if material, is described in further detail under “Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” section below.

 

19

 

 

Cost of Product Revenues. Cost of product revenues, which is comprised of materials, labor and manufacturing overhead related to the production of our products for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 were as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended     Three Months Ended  
(In thousands, except for percentages)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Cost of product revenues   $ 7,783     $ 6,397  
Cost of product revenues as a % of net product revenues     120 %     85 %

 

The increase in cost of sales as a percent of product revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 was due to lower production efficiencies resulting from a lower volume of units produced, approximately $450,000 of warranty costs reserves, and approximately $300,000 of additional reserve for excess materials.

 

During 2021, we became aware of global shortages of semiconductor components and production capacity affecting many industries. In the first quarter of 2022, we were impacted by a shortage of several semiconductor components from our normal vendors that are necessary to manufacture our products. We are evaluating other possible sources for the components we use. If we are unable to find replacement components, we expect that our production will be disrupted. The shortage of semiconductor components is a very dynamic situation, and we rely on our vendors to provide information about the vendors that they use.

 

Research and Development. R&D expenses are incurred in support of internal display development programs and programs funded by agencies or prime contractors of the U.S. government and commercial partners. R&D costs include staffing, purchases of materials and laboratory supplies, circuit design costs, fabrication and packaging of display products, and overhead. In fiscal year 2022, we expect our R&D expenditures to be related to our display products, overlay weapon sights and OLED display technologies. Funded and internal R&D expenses are combined in research and development expenses in the condensed consolidated statement of operations. R&D expenses for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 were as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended     Three Months Ended  
(In thousands)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Funded   $ 3,367     $ 2,115  
Internal     2,042       1,448  
Total research and development expense   $ 5,409     $ 3,563  

 

Funded R&D expense for the three months ended March 26, 2022 increased as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 primarily due to increased spending on U.S. defense programs. Internal R&D expenses for the three months ended March 26, 2022 increased primarily due to an increase in OLED development.

 

Selling, General and Administrative. Selling, general and administrative (“S,G&A”) expenses consist of the expenses incurred by our sales and marketing personnel and related expenses, and administrative and general corporate expenses. S,G&A expenses for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 were as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended     Three Months Ended  
(In thousands, except for percentages)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Selling, general and administration expense   $ 4,465     $ 5,906  
Selling, general and administration expense as a % of revenues     39 %     51 %

 

S,G&A decreased for the three months ended March 26, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 primarily due to a decrease in stock-based compensation, which was partially offset by an increase in professional fees, travel and insurance costs.

 

Other Income, net. Other income, net, is primarily composed of interest income, foreign currency transaction, gains on fair value recording of investments and remeasurement gains and losses incurred by our U.K.-based subsidiary and other non-operating income items. Other income, net, for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021 were as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended     Three Months Ended  
(In thousands)   March 26, 2022     March 27, 2021  
Other income, net   $ 4,741     $ 37  

 

20

 

 

During the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021, we recorded foreign currency gains of less than $0.1 million. Other income for the first quarter of 2022 includes a gain of $4.7 million resulting from the mark to market of an equity investment.

 

Tax Provision. We recorded a provision for income taxes of less than $0.1 million in the three months ended March 26, 2022 and the three months ended March 27, 2021.

 

Net Loss Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest. As of March 26, 2022, we owned 80% of the equity of eMDT America (“eMDT”). Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest on our condensed consolidated statements of operations represents the portion of the results of operations of eMDT which is allocated to the stockholders of the equity interests not owned by us. The change in net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest is the result of the change in the results of operations of eMDT for the three months ended March 26, 2022 and March 27, 2021.

 

Net Loss Attributable to Kopin Corporation. We incurred a net loss attributable to Kopin Corporation of $1.4 million during the three months ended March 26, 2022 compared to a net loss attributable to Kopin Corporation of $4.1 million during the three months ended March 27, 2021. The decrease in the net loss attributable to Kopin Corporation during the three months ended March 26, 2022 compared to the three months ended March 27, 2021 was due to unrealized gains on investments partially offset by a decrease in gross margins.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $26.3 million and $29.3 million, respectively, and working capital of $27.9 million and $34.7 million, respectively. The change in cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities was primarily due to cash used in operations of $2.3 million and the purchase of marketable debt securities of $3.0 million.

 

Cash and cash equivalents and marketable debt securities held in U.S. dollars at March 26, 2022 and December 25, 2021 were as follows:

 

    March 26, 2022     December 25, 2021  
Domestic locations   $ 25,049,061     $ 27,031,695  
International locations     618,932       865,416  
Subtotal cash and cash equivalents marketable debt securities held in U.S. dollars     25,667,993       27,897,111  
Cash and cash equivalents held in other currencies and converted to U.S. dollars     650,587       1,398,355  
Total cash and cash equivalents and marketable debt securities   $ 26,318,580     $ 29,295,466  

 

We have no plans to repatriate the cash and cash equivalents held in our foreign subsidiary Forth Dimension Displays, Ltd. (“FDD”), and, as such, we have not recorded any deferred tax liability with respect to such cash.

 

We expect to expend between $1.0 million and $2.0 million on capital expenditures in 2022.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

We invest our excess cash in high-quality U.S. government, government-backed (e.g., Fannie Mae, FDIC guaranteed bonds and certificates of deposit) and corporate debt instruments, which bear lower levels of relative risk. We believe that the effect, if any, of reasonably possible near-term changes in interest rates on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows should not be material to our cash flows or income. It is possible that interest rate movements would increase our unrealized gain or loss on debt securities. We are exposed to changes in foreign currency exchange rates primarily through our translation of our foreign subsidiaries’ financial position, results of operations, and transaction gains and losses as a result of non-U.S. dollar denominated cash flows related to business activities in Europe, and remeasurement of U.S. dollars to the British pound, the functional currency of our U.K. subsidiaries. We are also exposed to the effects of exchange rates in the purchase of certain raw materials, which are in U.S. dollars, but the price on future purchases is subject to change based on the relationship of the Japanese yen to the U.S. dollar. We do not currently hedge our foreign currency exchange rate risk. We estimate that any market risk associated with our international operations or investments is unlikely to have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operation. Our portfolio of marketable debt securities is subject to interest rate risk although our intent is to hold securities until maturity. The credit rating of our investments may be affected by the underlying financial health of the guarantors of our investments. We use silicon wafers but do not enter into forward or futures hedging contracts to mitigate against risks related to the price of silicon.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of March 26, 2022, the Company conducted an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, respectively) regarding the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 26, 2022, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The term “disclosure controls and procedures” means controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the requisite time periods and that such disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act are accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our management concluded that, as of March 26, 2022, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective in ensuring that material information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, including ensuring that such material information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Part II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

The Company may engage in legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and it is not possible to predict the ultimate outcome of such matters and our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows could be affected in any particular period.

 

BlueRadios, Inc. v. Kopin Corporation, Civil Action No. 16-02052-JLK (D. Col.):

 

On August 12, 2016, BlueRadios, Inc. (“BlueRadios”) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, alleging that the Company breached a contract between it and BlueRadios concerning an alleged joint venture between the Company and BlueRadios to design, develop and commercialize micro-display products with embedded wireless technology referred to as “Golden-i,” breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing associated with that contract, breached its fiduciary duty to BlueRadios, and misappropriated trade secrets owned by BlueRadios in violation of Colorado law (C.R.S. § 7-74-104(4)) and the Defend Trade Secrets Act (18 U.S.C. § 1836(b)(1)). BlueRadios further alleges that the Company was unjustly enriched by its alleged misconduct, BlueRadios is entitled to an accounting to determine the amount of profits obtained by the Company as a result of its alleged misconduct, and the inventorship on at least ten patents or patent applications owned by the Company need to be corrected to list BlueRadios’ employees as inventors and thereby list BlueRadios as co-assignees of the patents. BlueRadios seeks monetary, declaratory, and injunctive relief, including for alleged non-payment of engineering retainer fees.

 

On October 11, 2016, the Company filed its Answer and Affirmative Defenses. The parties completed expert depositions on November 15, 2019. On December 2, 2019, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment requesting the Court dismiss counts 2-7 in their entirety and counts 1 and 8 in part. BlueRadios also filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment alleging it is the co-owner of U.S. Patent No. 8,909,296. Responses to the Motions for Partial Summary Judgment were filed on January 15, 2020, and replies were filed on February 19, 2020. On September 25, 2020, the Court denied BlueRadios’ Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. A trial date has not yet been set by the Court. The Company has not concluded a loss from this matter is probable; therefore, we have not recorded an accrual for litigation or claims related to this matter for the period ended March 26, 2022. The Company will continue to evaluate information as it becomes known and will record an estimate for losses at the time or times when it is both probable that a loss has been incurred and the amount of the loss is reasonably estimable.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Our business and financial results are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. As a result, the risks and uncertainties discussed in Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K should be carefully considered. There have been no material changes in the assessment of our risk factors from those set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2021, except for the risk factor noted below.

 

Supply shortages could impair the quality, reduce the availability or increase the cost of raw materials, which could harm our business. We rely on third-party independent contractors for certain integrated circuit chip sets, backlights and other critical raw materials such as special glasses, wafers and chemicals. Lead times for the parts and components that we order vary significantly and depend on factors such as manufacturing cycle times, manufacturing yields, and the availability of raw materials used to produce the parts or components. Currently, the semiconductor industry is experiencing a shortage of semiconductor components. If this shortage were to further affect our supply of raw materials, our ability to manufacture and distribute our products could be adversely affected, which in turn would adversely affect our results of operations or financial condition.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

We did not sell any securities during the three months ended March 26, 2022 that were not registered under the Securities Act.
