Forward-Looking Statements

 

The statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Report that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” (as such term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995), within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include any statement that may project, indicate or imply future results, events, performance or achievements. The forward-looking statements contained herein are based on current expectations that involve several risks and uncertainties. These statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “believes,” “expect,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “intend,” “plan,” “could,” “estimate,” or “anticipate,” or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy that involve risks and uncertainties.

 

Given the risks and uncertainties relating to forward-looking statements, investors should not place undue reliance on such statements. Forward-looking statements included in this Report speak only as of the date of this Report and are not guarantees of future performance. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, such expectations may prove to be incorrect. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements. The risks and uncertainties mentioned previously relate to, among other matters, the following:

 

  · Economic uncertainty and financial market conditions may impact our customer base, suppliers and backlog;
     
  · The volatility of oil and natural gas prices;
     
  · Our use of percentage-of-completion accounting could result in volatility in our results of operations;
     
  · A portion of our contracts may contain terms with penalty provisions;
     
  · Fluctuations in the price and supply of raw materials used to manufacture our products may reduce our profits and could materially impact our ability to meet commitments to our customers;
     
  · Our operations could be adversely impacted by the continuing effects of government regulations;
     
  · International and political events may adversely affect our operations;

 

  · Our operating results may vary significantly from quarter to quarter;
     
  · We may be unsuccessful at generating profitable internal growth;
     
  · The departure of key personnel could disrupt our business;
     
  · Our business requires skilled labor, and we may be unable to attract and retain qualified employees;

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Amounts in thousands except per share amounts)

 

NOTE 1: BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Unless otherwise indicated, the terms “Deep Down, Inc.”, “Deep Down”, “Company”, “we”, “our” and “us” are used in this Report to refer to Deep Down, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Deep Down Nevada”), and its directly wholly owned subsidiary, Deep Down, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Deep Down Delaware”). The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Deep Down, Inc. were prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or the “Commission”) pertaining to interim financial information and instructions to Form 10-Q. As permitted under those rules, certain notes or other financial information that are normally required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”) can be condensed or omitted. Therefore, these statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and notes thereto, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosed amounts of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. If the underlying estimates and assumptions upon which the financial statements are based change in future periods, then the actual amounts may differ from those included in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.

 

Organization

 

Deep Down is an energy services company that provides equipment and support services to the world’s energy and offshore industries. Deep Down offers innovative solutions to complex customer challenges presented between the production facility and the energy source. Deep Down's core services and technological solutions include distribution system installation support and engineering services, umbilical terminations, loose-tube steel flying leads, and related services. Additionally, Deep Down's highly experienced professionals can support subsea engineering, manufacturing, installation, commissioning, and maintenance projects located anywhere in the world.

 

On February 22, 2022, Deep Down Nevada entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement”) providing for the merger of the Company with the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Koil Energy Solutions, Inc. (the “Merger Sub” and, the transaction, the “Merger”). As permitted by Chapter 92A.180 of Nevada Revised Statutes, the purpose of the Merger is to effect a change of the Company’s name from Deep Down, Inc., to Koil Energy Solutions, Inc. (the “Name Change”).

 

On February 25, 2022, in connection with the foregoing, Deep Down Nevada filed an Issuer Company-Related Action Notification Form with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), requesting confirmation of the Name Change. On February 28, 2022, in connection with the foregoing, the Company filed an Issuer Company-Related Action Notification Form with FINRA, requesting a change of the Company’s ticker symbol (the “Symbol Change”). Subject to approval by FINRA, the Name Change and Symbol Change will not affect the rights of the Company’s security holders. The Company’s securities will continue to be quoted on the OTC Markets. Following the Name Change, the stock certificates, which reflect the name of the Company prior to the Merger, will continue to be valid. Certificates reflecting the Name Change will be issued in due course as old stock certificates are tendered for exchange or transfer to the Company’s transfer agent.

Liquidity

 

The Company’s cash on hand was $3,439 and working capital was $6,276 as of June 30, 2022. As of December 31, 2021, cash on hand and working capital was $3,676 and $7,098, respectively. The Company depends on cash on hand, cash flows from operations, and the potential opportunistic sales of property, plant and equipment (“PP&E”) to satisfy its liquidity needs.

 

The Company believes it will have adequate liquidity to meet its future operating requirements through a combination of cash on hand, cash expected to be generated from operations, and potential sales of PP&E. Given the volatility in oil prices and the impact on global economic activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as recent increases in raw materials costs and ongoing supply chain constraints, the Company cannot predict this with certainty. To mitigate this uncertainty and preserve liquidity, the Company will continue to exercise discipline when making capital investments and practice opportunistic cost containment initiatives, which can include workforce alignment and limiting overhead spending and research and development efforts to only critical items.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented herein include the accounts of Deep Down, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. 

 

Segments

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company’s operations were organized as one reportable segment.

 

NOTE 2: LEASES

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (“ASC Topic 842”). Under this guidance, lessees are required to recognize on the balance sheet a lease liability and a right-of-use (“ROU”) asset for all leases, except for short-term leases with terms of twelve months or less. The lease liability represents the lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease and will initially be measured as the present value of the lease payments. The ROU asset represents the lessee’s right to use a specified asset for the lease term, and will be measured at the lease liability amount, adjusted for lease prepayment, lease incentives received and the lessee’s initial direct costs.

 

ASC Topic 842 provides for certain practical expedients when adopting the guidance. The Company elected the package of practical expedients allowing the Company, for all leases that commenced prior to the adoption date, to not reassess whether any expired or existing contracts are, or contain, leases, the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, or initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases.

 

The Company utilizes the land easements practical expedient allowing the Company to not assess whether any expired or existing land easements are, or contain, leases if they were not previously accounted for as leases under the existing leasing guidance. Instead, the Company will continue to apply its existing accounting policies to historical land easements. The Company elects to apply the short-term lease exception; therefore, the Company will not record an ROU asset or corresponding lease liability for leases with an initial term of twelve months or less that are not reasonably certain of being renewed and instead will recognize a single lease cost allocated over the lease term, generally on a straight-line basis. The Company elects to apply the practical expedient to not separate lease components from non-lease components and instead account for both as a single lease component for all asset classes.

 

 

 

  6  

 

 

The Company elects to not capitalize any lease in which the estimated value of the underlying asset at the commencement date is less than the Company’s capitalization threshold. A lease would need to qualify for the low value exception based on various criteria.

 

ROU assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term and include options to extend or terminate the lease when they are reasonably certain to be exercised. The present value of lease payments is determined primarily using the incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the lease commencement date. Lease agreements with lease and non-lease components are generally accounted for as a single lease component. The Company’s operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and a portion is recorded in cost of sales, and the remainder is recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses. The accounting for some leases may require significant judgment, which includes determining whether a contract contains a lease, determining the incremental borrowing rate to utilize in our net present value calculation of lease payments for lease agreements which do not provide an implicit rate, and assessing the likelihood of renewal or termination options.

 

As of June 30, 2022, we do not have any finance lease assets or liabilities, nor do we have any subleases.

NOTE 3: REVENUE FROM CONTRACTS WITH CUSTOMERS

 

Revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to our customers in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. To determine the proper revenue recognition method for our customer contracts, we evaluate whether two or more contracts should be combined and accounted for as one single contract and whether the combined or single contract should be accounted for as more than one performance obligation. This evaluation requires significant judgment and the decision to combine a group of contracts or separate the combined or single contract into multiple performance obligations could change the amount of revenue and profit recorded in a given period.

 

For most of our fixed price contracts, the customer contracts with us to provide a significant service of integrating a complex set of tasks and components into a single project or capability even if that single project results in the delivery of multiple units. Hence, the entire contract is accounted for as one performance obligation. We account for a contract when it has approval and commitment from both parties, the rights of the parties are identified, payment terms are identified, the contract has commercial substance and collectability of consideration is probable.

Disaggregation of Revenue

 

The following table presents the Company’s revenues disaggregated by fixed price and service contracts. Sales taxes are excluded from revenues.

           
    Three Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2022     2021  
Fixed Price Contracts   $ 745     $ 2,011  
Service Contracts     2,754       2,517  
Total   $ 3,499     $ 4,528  

 

             
    Six Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2022     2021  
Fixed Price Contracts   $ 2,429     $ 3,305  
Service Contracts     4,671       5,145  
Total   $ 7,100     $ 8,450  

 

Fixed price contracts

 

For fixed price contracts, we generally recognize revenue over time as we perform because of continuous transfer of control to the customer. This continuous transfer of control to the customer is supported by clauses in the contract that allow the customer to unilaterally terminate the contract for convenience, pay us for costs incurred plus a reasonable profit and take control of any work in process. In our fixed price contracts, the customer either controls the work in process or we deliver products with no alternative use to the Company and have rights to payment for work performed to date plus a reasonable profit as evidenced by contractual termination clauses.

 

Because of control transferring over time, revenue is recognized based on the extent of progress towards completion of the performance obligation. The selection of the method to measure progress towards completion requires judgment and is based on the nature of the products or services to be provided. We generally use the cost-to-cost measure of progress for our contracts because it best depicts the transfer of control to the customer which occurs as we incur costs on our contracts. Under the cost-to-cost measure of progress, the extent of progress towards completion is measured based on the ratio of costs incurred to date to the total estimated costs at completion of the performance obligation. Revenues, including estimated fees or profits, are recorded proportionally as costs are incurred.

 

Contracts are often modified to account for changes in contract specifications and requirements. We consider contract modifications to exist when the modification either creates new, or changes the existing, enforceable rights and obligations. Most of our contract modifications are for goods or services that are not distinct from the existing contract due to the significant integration service provided in the context of the contract and are accounted for as if they were part of that existing contract. The effect of a contract modification on the transaction price, and our measure of progress for the performance obligation to which it relates, is recognized as an adjustment to revenue (either as an increase in or a reduction of revenue) on a cumulative catch-up basis.

 

 

 

  9  

 

 

We have a company-wide standard and disciplined quarterly estimate at completion process in which management reviews the progress and execution of our performance obligations. As part of this process, management reviews information including, but not limited to, any outstanding key contract matters, progress towards completion and the related program schedule, identified risks and opportunities and the related changes in estimates of revenues and costs. Changes in estimates of net sales, cost of sales and the related impact to operating income are recognized quarterly on a cumulative catch-up basis, which recognizes in the current period the cumulative effect of the changes on current and prior periods based on a performance obligation’s percentage of completion. A significant change in one or more of these estimates could affect the profitability of one or more of our performance obligations. When estimates of total costs to be incurred exceed total estimates of revenue to be earned on a performance obligation related to fixed price contracts, a provision for the entire loss on the performance obligation is recognized in the period the loss is estimated.

 

Service Contracts

 

We recognize revenue for service contracts measuring progress toward satisfying the performance obligation in a manner that best depicts the transfer of goods or services to the customer. The control over services is transferred over time when the services are rendered to the customer on a daily basis. Specifically, we recognize revenue as the services are provided as we have the right to invoice the customer for the services performed. Services are billed on a monthly basis. Payment terms for services are usually 30 days from invoice receipt but can increase to 45 or 60 days depending on the customer.

 

Contract balances

 

Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts arise when revenues are recorded based on the extent of progress towards completion but cannot be invoiced under the terms of the contract. Such amounts are invoiced upon completion of contractual milestones. Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts arise when milestone billings are permissible under the contract, but the related costs have not yet been incurred. All contract costs are recognized currently on jobs formally approved by the customer and contracts are not shown as complete until virtually all anticipated costs have been incurred and the risk of loss has passed to the customer.

 

Assets related to costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts, as well as liabilities related to billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts, have been classified as current. The contract cycle for certain long-term contracts may extend beyond one year; thus, complete collection of amounts related to these contracts may extend beyond one year though such long-term contracts include contractual milestone billings as discussed above. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, there were no contracts with terms that extended beyond one year.

 

The following table summarizes our contract assets, which are “Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts” and our contract liabilities, which are “Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts”.

           
    June 30, 2022     December 31, 2021  
Costs incurred on uncompleted contracts   $ 40     $ 1,312  
Estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts     14       1,485  
Gross costs and estimated earnings      54       2,797  
Less: Billings to date on uncompleted contracts     (153 )     (2,695 )
Costs incurred plus estimated earning less billings on uncompleted contracts, net    $ (99 )   $ 102  
                 
Included in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets under the following captions:                
Contract assets   $ 7     $ 352  
Contract liabilities     (106 )     (250 )
Costs incurred plus estimated earning less billings on uncompleted contract   $ (99 )   $ 102  

  

The contract asset and liability balances at June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 consisted primarily of revenue related to fixed-price projects.

Remaining Performance Obligations

 

Remaining performance obligations represent the transaction price of firm orders for which work has not been performed and excludes unexercised contract options, potential orders, and any remaining performance obligations for any sales arrangements that had not fully satisfied the criteria to be considered a contract with a customer pursuant to the requirements of ASC 606.

  

Practical Expedients and Exemptions

 

We generally expense sales commissions when incurred because the amortization period would have been one year or less. These costs are recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses.

 

Many of our services contracts are short-term in nature with a contract term of one year or less. For those contracts, we have utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14 exempting the Company from disclosure of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations if the performance obligation is part of a contract that has an original expected duration of one year or less.

 

Additionally, our payment terms are short-term in nature with settlements of one year or less. We have, therefore, utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-32-18 exempting the Company from adjusting the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component given that the period between when the Company transfers a promised good or service to a customer and when the customer pays for that good or service is expected to be one year or less.

 

Further, in many of our service contracts, we have a right to consideration from a customer in an amount that corresponds directly with the value to the customer of our performance completed to date (for example, a service contract in which we bill a fixed amount for each hour of service provided). For those contracts, we have utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-55-18, which allows us to recognize revenue in the amount for which we have the right to invoice.

 

Accordingly, we do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original expected length of one year or less and (ii) contracts for which we recognize revenue at the amount to which we have the right to invoice for services performed.

  

NOTE 4: PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT

 

Property, plant and equipment consisted of the following:

                 
                Range of  
    June 30, 2022     December 31, 2021     Asset Lives  
Buildings and improvements   $ 285     $ 285     7 - 36 years

NOTE 5: SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Share-based compensation is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations and additional paid-in capital in the accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheets. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recognized a total of $14 and $71 of share-based compensation expense, respectively. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recognized a total of $17 and $37 of share-based compensation expense, respectively. The unamortized estimated fair value of nonvested shares of restricted stock and stock options was zero at June 30, 2022.

  

NOTE 6: TREASURY STOCK

 

No shares of common stock were purchased during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, 147 shares of common stock were purchased for an aggregate amount of $100 in a privately negotiated transaction. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, 501 shares of common stock were purchased for an aggregate amount of $326 in a privately negotiated transaction. Treasury shares are accounted for using the cost method. See further discussion in Note 10.

 

NOTE 7: INCOME TAXES

 

Income tax expense during interim periods is based on applying the estimated annual effective income tax rate to interim period operations. The estimated annual effective income tax rate may vary from the statutory rate due to the impact of permanent items relative to our pre-tax income, as well as by any valuation allowance recorded. We employ an asset and liability approach that results in the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial basis and the tax basis of those assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that some of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, management has recorded a full deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

 

NOTE 8: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Employment Agreement

 

Our Chief Executive Officer is employed under an employment agreement containing severance provisions. In the event of termination of the CEO’s employment for any reason, the CEO will be entitled to receive all accrued, unpaid salary and vacation time through the date of termination and all benefits to which the CEO is entitled or vested under the terms of all employee benefit and compensation plans, agreements, and arrangements in which the CEO participates as of the date of termination.

 

In addition, subject to executing a general release in favor of the Company, the CEO will be entitled to receive certain severance payments in the event his employment is terminated by the Company “other than for cause” or by the CEO with “good reason.” These severance payments include: (i) a lump sum in cash equal to one to two times the CEO’s annual base salary; (ii) a lump sum in cash equal to one to two times the average annual bonus paid to the CEO for the prior two full fiscal years preceding the date of termination; (iii) a lump sum in cash equal to a pro rata portion of the annual bonus payable for the period in which the date of termination occurs based on the actual performance under the Company’s annual incentive bonus arrangement, but no less than fifty percent of the CEO’s annual base salary; and (iv) if the CEO’s termination occurs prior to the date that is twelve months following a change of control, then each and every share option, restricted share award and other equity-based award that is outstanding and held by the CEO shall immediately vest and become exercisable.

Litigation

 

From time to time, the Company is party to various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company expenses or accrues legal costs as incurred and is not involved in any material legal proceedings as of the date of this Report.

 

In November 2011, the Company delivered equipment to Aker Solutions, Inc. (“Aker”), but Aker declined to pay the final invoice in the aggregate amount of $270 alleging some warranty items needed to be repaired. The Company made repairs, but Aker continued to claim further work was required. The Company repeatedly attempted to collect on the receivable and ultimately filed suit on November 16, 2012, in the Harris County District Court. Aker subsequently filed a counter claim on March 20, 2013 in the aggregate amount of $1,000 for reimbursement of insurance payments allegedly made for repairs. The parties convened for mediation on March 9, 2022, and on May 9, 2022, the Company and Aker finalized the terms of a definitive settlement agreement with a mutual dismissal with prejudice of all claims by and between them. The Company subsequently reversed a liability accrual of $100, and no liability remained as of June 30, 2022.

 

On August 6, 2018, GE Oil and Gas UK Ltd. (“GE”) requested that the Company mediate a dispute between the parties in the ICC International Centre for ADR (“ICC”). The dispute involved alleged delays and defects in products manufactured by the Company for GE dating back to 2013. During the second quarter of 2020, the parties finalized the terms of a definitive settlement agreement which is now final and binding. Per the terms of the settlement, the Company paid GE an aggregate of $750, on a monthly basis, through December 2021. The Company accrued a liability related to this matter in the amount of $750 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The remaining liability was $180 at June 30, 2021, and no liability remained at June 30, 2022.

 

NOTE 9: EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive effect of common stock equivalents (warrants, nonvested stock awards and stock options) using the treasury method.

 

In each relevant period, the net income used in the basic and diluted EPS calculations is the same. The following table reconciles the weighted-average basic number of common shares outstanding and the weighted-average diluted number of common shares outstanding for the purpose of calculating basic and diluted EPS.

                               
    Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended  
    June 30,     June 30,  
    2022     2021     2022     2021  
Weighted average common shares outstanding - basic     11,992       12,389       12,074       12,389  
Dilutive effect of common stock equivalents     65       55       62       49  
Weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted     12,057       12,444       12,136       12,438

NOTE 10: RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

On August 15, 2019, Mr. Ronald E. Smith, the Company's Founder, resigned as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of the Board, effective as of August 31, 2019.

 

In connection with Mr. Smith's resignation, the Company entered into a Transition Agreement with him, effective as of September 1, 2019 (the “Transition Agreement”). The Transition Agreement provided for Mr. Smith to serve as an independent consultant to the Company from September 1, 2019 through December 31, 2021. The Company agreed to pay Mr. Smith $42 per month, from September 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019, and $15 per month, from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021, in exchange for his services. The Company recorded consulting expenses related to the Transition Agreement totaling $45 and $90 for the three and six months ended June 31, 2021, respectively.

 

In addition to the other payments provided for under the Transition Agreement, the Company also agreed to pay Mr. Smith 1.5% of the net sale or lease value of two carousels owned by Company, if such sale or lease occurred prior to December 31, 2021, and subject to certain other conditions. Such carousels were not sold prior to December 31, 2021. No commissions were paid during the three months ended June 30, 2022, and a commission in the amount of $4 was paid to Mr. Smith during the six months ended June 30, 2022 and was related to the lease of one of the carousels during the quarter ending December 31, 2021. No commissions were paid during the three or six months ended June 30, 2021.

 

On January 5, 2022, the Company repurchased 235 shares of common stock from Mr. Smith at a total cost of $150. On March 24, 2022, the Company repurchased 119 shares of common stock from Mr. Smith in exchange for several long-lived assets that were non-strategic to the core operations of the business. On June 3, 2022, the Company repurchased 147 shares of common stock from Mr. Smith at a total cost of $100. The price per share used for each transaction was market price, and the average price per share paid to Mr. Smith was $0.65.

 

NOTE 11:          EMPLOYEE RETENTION CREDIT

 

Under the provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) signed into law on March 27, 2020 and the subsequent extension of the CARES Act, the Company was eligible for a refundable employee retention credit subject to certain criteria. Since there are no generally accepted accounting principles for for-profit business entities that receive government assistance that is not in the form of a loan, an income tax credit or revenue from a contract with a customer, we determined the appropriate accounting treatment by analogy to other guidance. The Company accounted for the employee retention credit by analogy to International Accounting Standards (“IAS”) 20, “Accounting for Government Grants and Disclosure of Government Assistance, of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).”

 

Under an IAS 20 analogy, a business entity would recognize the employee retention credit on a systematic basis over the periods in which the entity recognizes the payroll expenses for which the grant (i.e., tax credit) is intended to compensate when there is reasonable assurance (i.e., it is probable) that the entity will comply with any conditions attached to the grant and the grant (i.e., tax credit) will be received.

 

The Company recognized a $650 employee retention credit as other income on its consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2021, and the Company has a $650 employee retention tax credit receivable balance recorded on its consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2022. The Company filed for refunds of the employee retention credits and as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, has not received any refunds.

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

(Amounts in thousands except per share amounts)

 

The following discussion and analysis provides information that management believes is relevant for an assessment and understanding of Deep Down’s results of operations and financial condition. This information should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited historical consolidated financial statements, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and which is available on the SEC’s website, and the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, and notes thereto, included with this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Report”) in Part I. Item 1. “Financial Statements.” 

 

General

 

Deep Down is an energy services company that provides equipment and support services to the world’s energy and offshore industries. Deep Down offers innovative solutions to complex customer challenges presented between the production facility and the energy source. Deep Down's core services and technological solutions include distribution system installation support and engineering services, umbilical terminations, loose-tube steel flying leads, and related services. Additionally, Deep Down's highly experienced professionals can support subsea engineering, manufacturing, installation, commissioning, and maintenance projects located anywhere in the world.  

 

Industry and Executive Outlook

 

The energy services industry is dependent on the capital and operating expenditure programs of energy companies. The decision for operators to cut back or accelerate their exploration, drilling, and production operations is substantially driven by the overall condition of the energy industry. Particularly, the oil and gas industry has historically been characterized by fluctuations in commodity prices, which are driven by a variety of market forces.

 

Deep Down’s second quarter results reflect the ongoing challenges that face the offshore industry. Our revenues continue to be impacted by reduced global demand and delays in customer drilling schedules. Inflation, certain geopolitical events, and the lingering effects of the pandemic continue to weigh on our customers’ abilities to commit to long-term deepwater projects. While these factors are systemic, we remain focused on the levers within our control as we work to grow the business.

 

To further enhance our growth prospects, we made two significant announcements this year: a relocation of the business and a rebranding of the company.

 

We now have full possession of our newly leased premises and are currently progressing with relocating equipment and inventory to our new headquarters. We expect to complete this relocation in the third quarter of 2022. Despite this timeline, we have already received positive feedback from our customers regarding the move as evidenced by the receipt of our first purchase order to provide hydrogen energy services. This order will initially focus on storage, management and enhancement of customer furnished materials utilizing Deep Down's alloy welding and other fabrication capabilities. Following validation of these early-stage activities, future phases could lead to systems integration activities potentially including the commissioning of systems being developed for the retail consumer market.

 

Rebranding the company from Deep Down, Inc. to Koil Energy Solutions, Inc. was the next step in promoting our core competencies to expand our product and service offerings into new markets. We are still awaiting approval from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for our name and ticker symbol change, but we have moved forward with this change operationally and are currently working with our customers under the new brand.

 

 

 

  15  

 

 

As we look towards the future, our growth efforts will revolve around three pillars: (i) Systems, (ii) Technology and (iii) Partnerships. These three pillars will be energy source agnostic.

 

Systems primarily relates to our legacy offerings in the oil and gas segment but represents the shift in our approach to becoming a provider of integrated systems instead of just providing the individual components. We have previously realized success with this strategy and have identified some opportunities to pursue on a systematic basis.

 

Technology entails the development of new equipment and associated services that straddle both traditional oil and gas as well as renewable energy sources. Our product development team is already hard at work and, in just a short amount of time, has already identified a potentially patentable offering. This pillar will also include our ongoing efforts to further enhance the environmental friendliness of our equipment.

 

Partnerships involve the collaboration with like-minded organizations where we will seek to leverage our core competencies to jointly capitalize on future opportunities. This will likely be a longer-term strategy and could develop in a variety of ways, such as project specific consortia, strategic alliances, or operational joint ventures.

 

We will continue to provide additional details in due course as we work with our team to accomplish our vision of having the most experienced, professional and dependable team, who seek to develop the most innovative solutions, including the most efficient and reliable equipment, with the ultimate goal of providing best-in-class returns for our stockholders.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended June 30, 2022 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2021

 

Revenues

    Three Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Revenues   $ 3,499     $ 4,528     $ (1,029 )     (23 )%

 

The 23 percent decrease in revenues was primarily driven by a decline in product oriented, fixed price contracts offset by an increase in short duration projects utilizing our support services and rental solutions.

 

Cost of Sales

    Three Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Cost of sales   $ 2,018     $ 3,122     $ (1,104 )     (35 )%
Gross profit   $ 1,481     $ 1,406     $ 75       5%  
Gross profit %     42%       31%             11%  

 

 

 

  16  

 

 

The increase in gross profit and gross profit as a percentage of sales was due to incurring less materials costs and decreases in lower margin passthrough service costs for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

 

The Company records depreciation expense related to revenue-generating property, plant and equipment as cost of sales, which totaled $117 and $184 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.  The comparative decrease in depreciation was primarily due to sale of several long-lived assets that were non-strategic to the core operations of the business.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses

    Three Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Selling, general & administrative   $ 1,419     $ 1,752     $ (333 )     (19 )%
Selling, general & administrative as a % of revenue     41%       39%             2%  

 

The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) was primarily due to recording a $534 reserve for doubtful accounts receivable related to prolonged customer payment terms and uncertainty around certain customers’ liquidity for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

 

Interest expense, net

 

Net interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $3 compared to net interest expense of $8 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease of $5 is related to the forgiveness of the Company’s PPP loan balances in 2021.

 

Gain on sale of assets

 

Gain on sales of assets was approximately $134 and $6 during the three months ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, respectively, and primarily related to equipment sold by the Company.

 

Modified EBITDA

 

Deep Down management evaluates Company performance based on a non-US GAAP measure which consists of earnings (net income or loss) available to common stockholders before net interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash share-based compensation expense, non-cash gains or losses on the sale of property, plant and equipment (“PP&E”), other non-cash items and one-time charges (“Modified EBITDA”). This measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. The measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing, or financing activities, or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with US GAAP. The amounts included in the Modified EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

  

 

 

  17  

 

 

We believe Modified EBITDA is a useful measure of a company’s operating performance, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, financing methods, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. It helps investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), and actions that do not affect liquidity (share-based compensation expense) from our operating results. Additionally, it helps investors identify items that are within our operational control. Depreciation and amortization charges, while a component of operating income, are fixed at the time of the asset purchase or acquisition in accordance with the depreciable lives of the related asset and as such are not a directly controllable period operating charge.

 

The following is a reconciliation of net income to Modified EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

 

    Three Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2022     2021  
Net income   $ 177     $ 724  
                 
Add: Interest expense, net     3       8  
Add: Income tax expense     10       6  
Add: Depreciation and amortization     173       262  
Add: Share-based compensation     14       17  
Add: Relocation costs     29        
Deduct: Gain on sale of asset     (134 )     (6 )
Deduct: Forgiveness of PPP loan           (1,124 )
Deduct: Reversal of litigation accrual     (100 )      
                 
Modified EBITDA   $ 172     $ (113 )

 

The $285 increase in Modified EBITDA was due primarily to the improved gross margins during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. Modified EBITDA (loss) for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was also impacted by recording a $534 reserve for doubtful accounts receivable during that period. This is compared to recording a $55 reversal to the reserve for doubtful accounts receivable for the collection of previously reserved amounts during the three months ended June 30, 2022.

 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2022 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2021

 

Revenues

    Six Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Revenues   $ 7,100     $ 8,450     $ (1,350 )     (16 )%

 

The 16 percent decrease in revenues was primarily driven by a decline in product oriented, fixed price contracts offset by an increase in short duration projects utilizing our support services and rental solutions.

 

 

 

  18  

 

 

Cost of Sales

    Six Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Cost of sales   $ 4,204     $ 5,316     $ (1,112 )     (21 )%
Gross profit   $ 2,896     $ 3,134     $ (238 )     (8 )%
Gross profit %     41%       37%             4%  

 

The decrease in gross profit was due to lower revenues from short duration project activity for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales was due to incurring less materials costs and decreases in lower margin passthrough service costs for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

 

The Company records depreciation expense related to revenue-generating property, plant and equipment as cost of sales, which totaled $253 and $367 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.  The comparative decrease in depreciation was primarily due to sale of several long-lived assets that were non-strategic to the core operations of the business.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses

    Six Months Ended June 30,     Increase (Decrease)  
    2022     2021     $     %  
Selling, general & administrative   $ 3,087     $ 3,287     $ (200 )     (6 )%
Selling, general & administrative as a % of revenue     43%       39%             4%  

 

The decrease in SG&A was primarily due to recording a $534 reserve for doubtful accounts receivable related to prolonged customer payment terms and uncertainty around certain customers’ liquidity for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

 

Interest expense, net

 

Net interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $5 compared to net interest expense of $21 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease of $16 is related to the forgiveness of the Company’s PPP loan balances in 2021.

 

Gain on sale of assets

 

Gain on sales of assets was approximately $188 and $55 during the six months ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, respectively, and primarily related to equipment sold by the Company.

 

 

 

  19  

 

 

Modified EBITDA

 

The following is a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Modified EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

 

    Six Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2022     2021  
Net income (loss)   $ (87 )   $ 872  
                 
Add: Interest expense, net     5       21  
Add: Income tax expense     15       10  
Add: Depreciation and amortization     369       522  
Add: Share-based compensation     71       37  
Add: Relocation costs     29        
Deduct: Gain on sale of asset     (188 )     (55 )
Deduct: Forgiveness of PPP loan           (1,124 )
Deduct: Reversal of litigation accrual     (100 )      
                 
Modified EBITDA   $ 114     $ 283  

 

The $169 decrease in Modified EBITDA was mainly driven by the decrease in revenues during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Modified EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was also impacted by recording a $534 reserve for doubtful accounts receivable during that period. This is compared to recording a $133 reversal to the reserve for doubtful accounts receivable for the collection of previously reserved amounts during the six months ended June 30, 2022.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company believes it will have adequate liquidity to meet its future operating requirements through a combination of cash on hand, cash expected to be generated from operations, and potential sales of PP&E. Given the volatility in oil prices and the impact on global economic activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as recent increases in raw materials costs and ongoing supply chain constraints, the Company cannot predict this with certainty. To mitigate this uncertainty and preserve liquidity, the Company will continue to exercise discipline when making capital investments and practice opportunistic cost containment initiatives, which can include workforce alignment and limiting overhead spending and research and development efforts to only critical items.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company generated $780 of net cash from operating activities primarily driven by a decrease in accounts receivable and several other components of working capital. The Company used $767 of net cash in investing activities, primarily to fund capital expenditures. The Company also used $250 of net cash in financing activities for the repurchase of common stock, which resulted in a $237 decrease in cash for the period.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company used $643 of net cash in operating activities primarily to fund working capital. The Company also used $140 of net cash in investing activities, primarily to fund capital expenditures. The Company generated $1,111 of net cash provided by financing activities from PPP loan proceeds, which resulted in a $328 increase in cash for the period.

 

 

 

  20  

 

 

Inflation and Seasonality

 

The Company does not believe that its operations have been significantly impacted by inflation, and its business is not significantly seasonal in nature.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company has no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on its financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates 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 reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The most significant estimates used in the financial statements relate to revenue recognition where the Company measures progress towards completion on a cost-to-cost basis for fixed-price contracts, the allowance for doubtful accounts, and the valuation allowance for deferred income tax assets. Significant estimates are also used in management’s assessment of conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These estimates require judgments, which are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions, as well as specific circumstances. Estimates may change as new events occur, additional information becomes available or operating environments change.

 

Refer to Part II. Item 7. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for a discussion of our critical accounting policies and estimates.

 

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts and Bad Debt Expense

 

The Company provides an allowance on trade receivables based on a specific review of each customer’s accounts receivable balance with respect to its ability to make payments. When specific accounts are determined to require an allowance, they are expensed by a provision for bad debts in that period. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company estimated the allowance for doubtful accounts requirement to be $0 and $525, respectively. The Company recorded a credit to bad debt expense totaling $55 and $133 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, due to payments received on certain previously reserved balances. The Company recorded a $534 charge to bad debt expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that such information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive and the principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance that control objectives are attained. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide such reasonable assurance.

  

The Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2022, as required by Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, the principal executive and the principal financial officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2022.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. The Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive and principal financial officer, have concluded there were no changes in internal control over financial reporting during the three months June 30, 2022.

PART II. – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, the Company is party to various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company expenses or accrues legal costs as incurred and is not involved in any material legal proceedings as of the date of this Report.

 

In November 2011, the Company delivered equipment to Aker Solutions, Inc. (“Aker”), but Aker declined to pay the final invoice in the aggregate amount of $270 alleging some warranty items needed to be repaired. The Company made repairs, but Aker continued to claim further work was required. The Company repeatedly attempted to collect on the receivable and ultimately filed suit on November 16, 2012, in the Harris County District Court. Aker subsequently filed a counter claim on March 20, 2013 in the aggregate amount of $1,000 for reimbursement of insurance payments allegedly made for repairs. The parties convened for mediation on March 9, 2022, and on May 9, 2022, the Company and Aker finalized the terms of a definitive settlement agreement with a mutual dismissal with prejudice of all claims by and between them. The Company subsequently reversed a liability accrual of $100, and no liability remained as of June 30, 2022.
