General
 
The accompanying condensed unaudited consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2023 have been prepared by the Company, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) for financial information. These financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments and accruals, which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position of the Company as of June 30, 2023 and the results of operations for the six months then ended. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The results of operations presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for future quarters or for the year ending December 31, 2023.
 
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements, related notes and other information included in this report and with the Risk Factors included in Part 1 Item 3 in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022, filed with the SEC.
 
This Report contains statements that may constitute “forward-looking statements”. Generally, forward-looking statements include words or phrases such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “could,” “may,” “might,” “should,” “will”, the negative of such terms, and words and phrases of similar import. Such statements are based on management’s current expectations and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties could cause our actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement represents our expectations or forecasts only as of the date it was made and should not be relied upon as representing its expectations or forecasts as of any subsequent date. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, even if our expectations or forecasts change.

As of June 30, 2023, the Company owns less than 1% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Manuka, Inc. (“MNKA”), Previously Artemis Therapeutics, Inc (“ATMS”). On March 6, 2022, ATMS entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Manuka Ltd. and the shareholders of Manuka Ltd., a company incorporated in Israel engaged in developing and manufacturing skincare products based on Manuka honey and bee venom. Following those agreements Manuka Ltd. became a wholly owned subsidiary of the ATMS. As the shareholders of Manuka Ltd. received the largest ownership interest in ATMS, Manuka Ltd. was determined to be the “accounting acquirer” in a reverse recapitalization.
 
The market value of the Company's investment in MNKA as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 is $15 and $146, respectively. The Company evaluated the stock price of MNKA but as MNKA share price is low, the number of shares that are being traded is low, and as MNKA still does not have any material revenue or profitable operations, the Company determined that the value of the investment is impaired and accordingly, valued the investment at zero
 
Freezone I-SEC Korea Inc.
 
In April 2018, the Company signed a Joint Venture Agreement with a South Korean Company in order to establish a Joint Venture Company (“JVC”) and to provide aviation security and non-security services in South Korea. Each one of the parties holds 50% (fifty percent) of the JVC’s equity. The Company used the equity method for this investment. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company’s investment is zero KRW and 33,789KRW ($0 and $27, respectively). In January 1, 2023, the Company sold its part in the JVC to the South Korean Company for an amount of €25 ($27 as of January 1, 2023).

Inquiry Proceedings
 
On June 24, 2021, a minority shareholder of the Company initiated inquiry proceedings before the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal (the “Court”) which is a specialized court dedicated to resolving corporate disputes. The shareholder has requested the Court to appoint an investigator on behalf of the Court in accordance with Dutch law, to investigate certain activities of the Company that have been previously disclosed by the Company in its periodic filings with the SEC for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. The shareholder has not requested the Court to order preliminary relief, but has requested the Court to order the registrant to pay the costs of the proceedings. On June 2022, the Court rendered its judgement after reviewing all filings and a court hearing. The Court accepted ICTS’s defense on all items except two and appointed an investigator to examine those two items. The two items are: The conversion of loans in 2019 from a related party at a share price of $0.40 and the issuance of shares to directors and certain employees in 2019 at a share price of $0.40. During the investigation it was pointed out that the conversion and purchase price of $0.40 per share, although above market, was below nominal value of 0.45. Euro per share. As a result, in September 2023 the additional amounts regarding the converted debt and issued shares were paid to the Company to level the price to nominal value. During the investigation, the Company advised the investigator that the Company will be making changes in its governance procedures as well as adding an additional supervisory director who is familiar with Dutch law. The Company expects the to receive the official report during 2023.
 
Agency Agreements
 
In April 2013, prior to the purchase of one of the current subsidiaries in Europe, the Company entered into an agency agreement with a third party to assist it with this transaction. According to the agreement, in the event that the operations in that country are sold in the future, the third-party agent is entitled to a payment of €3,000 ($3,253 as of June 30, 2023). 
 
In March 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with a third party to assist the Company with the possible sale of one of the Company’s subsidiaries. The fees depend on the outcome of the assignment and are between 2%-5% of the sale consideration but not less than $4,000. In February 2019, the agreement was amended. According to the amendment, in case that less than 50% of the voting stock or majority of the subsidiary assets are being sold, the transaction fee will be 5% of the sale consideration but not lower than $3,000. In January 2022, the agreement was amended so that the fees will be 2%-3% of the sale consideration but not less than $4,000 and with a cap of $20,000. In case that less than 50% of the voting stock or majority of the subsidiary assets are being sold the transaction, fee will be 5% of the sale consideration but not lower than $4,000
 
Employment Agreement
 
In December 2022, the Company entered into an employment agreement with a third party to serve as the CEO of one of the Company’s subsidiaries. According to the agreement the employee is entitled to annual target bonus. The annual target bonus is based on achievement of targets as should be defined by the subsidiary’s board of directors. The bonus shall be equal to 10% of the EBIDA (excluding the applicable taxes).

NOTE 15 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
In September 2023 the Company’s U.S subsidiary entered into a line of credit arrangement with a commercial bank to provide it with up to $7,500 in borrowings based on borrowing base limitation. The borrowing base limitation is equivalent to: (i)85% of non-investment grade domestic receivables, plus (ii) 90% of investment grade domestic receivables, plus(iii)80% of prior 4 weeks direct labor payroll. Borrowings under the credit facility are secured by the U.S subsidiary’s assets as accounts receivable and unbilled. Borrowings under the line of credit arrangement bear interest at SOFR (5.3% as of October 31, 2023) plus 2.65% per annum which is payable monthly.
 
In October 2023, Israel was attacked by a terror organization and declared a war in Gaza. Currently, the operations of the Israeli subsidiary, which operates in our authentication technology reportable segment, remain unaffected. Therefore, as of the date of the issuance of these financial statements, the impact of this war on the Company’s consolidated financial statements is insignificant.

The Company’s business plan, projects income from operations and positive cash flows from operations. The Company is also looking to increase its liquidity by getting new lines of credit for its operations in Europe. On September 2023, the Company’s American subsidiary signed a line of credit agreement with a commercial bank, to provide it with up to $7.5 million based on borrowing base limitations. There can be no assurance that management will be successful in achieving its business plan or increasing its liquidity.
 
Revenue
 
Total revenue increased from $156.0 million in the first six months of 2022 to $204.4 million in the first six months of 2023.
 
Revenue generated in Germany was $56.2 million in the first six months of 2023 compared to $57.1million in the parallel period of 2022.
 
Revenue generated in the Netherlands was $46.4 million in the first six months of 2023 compared to $28.4 million in the parallel period of 2022. In the Netherlands, there have been few changes in the operational structure and the customer’s requirements which increased the amount of revenue generated in 2023. While 2022 was the year on which the aviation industry started to recover from COVID 19 and the Company suffered from shortage in manpower in order to provide the demand, in 2023 the Company has been able to satisfy the demand. In addition, revenue has been affected by the increase of cost of living as salaries of employees have been increased and the customer was charged back to back.
 
Revenue generated in Spain was $39.2 million in the first six months of 2023 compared to $17.3 million in the first six months of 2022. Increase in revenue was due to the recovery of the aviation industry and the increase of passengers traveling through Spain, as well as increase in services provided to new and other existing clients. The Company has been extended its operations in Spain during the last few years as part of its aviation security segment strategy for growth.
 
Revenue generated in the United States of America was $50.0 million in the first six months of 2023, compared to $42.3 million in the parallel period of 2022. Services provided by Huntleigh USA (the American subsidiary of the Company) to its customers in the United States of America increased from $23.4 million in the first six months of 2022 to $31.3 million for the first six months if 2023. While 2022 was the year on which the aviation industry started to recover from COVID 19 and the Company suffered from shortage in manpower in order to provide the demand, in 2023 the Company has been able to satisfy the demand. In addition, minimum wages in many states in the United States of America increased in the last year, which usually increased also the billable rates.
 
Revenue outside Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States of America totaled $12.6 million in the first six months of 2023 compared to $10.4 million in the first six months of 2022. This increase in revenue represents increase in sales in different countries both from the aviation security services segment and the authentication technology segment.
 
Cost of revenue
 
Cost of revenue for the period ended June 30, 2023 was $119.1 million or 83.5%, compared to $119.1 million or 76.3% of revenue in the first six months of 2022. The majority of cost of revenue relates to payroll and related costs. Following the recovery of the airport security and other aviation services segments in 2023 and the increase of revenues in those segments, cost of revenue increased. Following the COVID-19 crisis the Netherlands provided financial assistance to the Company and its Dutch subsidiaries at the airport security services segment, for the first quarter of 2022 which decreased the total cost of revenue for the period ended June 30, 2022. The Netherlands provided for that period financial and payroll support of €4.6 million ($5.1 million), reducing the Company’s labor costs. This amount was recorded in the Company’s books as reduction of payroll expenses, which decreased the cost of revenue in 2022.

Research and Development (“R&D”)
 
R&D expenses for the period ended June 30, 2023 were $6.5 million (3.2% as percentage of revenue) compared to $6.6 million (4.2% as percentage of revenue) for the first six months of 2022. During the first six months of 2023 the Company’s revenues increased materially compared to the previous year revenue so the R&D as percentage of revenue decreased while there was not material change in the total R&D expenses. As most of the R&D employees of the Company are located in Israel, the R&D costs are being affected also by exchange rate fluctuations between the Israeli Shekels and the Dollars. R&D expenses for the first 6 months of 2023 according to the average rate at the parallel period in 2022 would be $6.0, a decrease of $0.6M comparted to 2022.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”)
 
SG&A expenses were $28.6 million for the period ended June 30, 2023 (14.0% as percentage of revenue) compared to $27.9 million (17.9% as percentage of revenue) for the first six months of 2022. During the first six months of 2023 the Company’s revenues increased materially compared to the previous year revenue so the SG&A as percentage of revenue decreased while there was not material change in the total SG&A expenses.
 
Equity loss from investment in affiliates
 
The equity loss from investment in affiliates in the first six months of 2022 relates mostly to the investment in Freezone I-SEC Korea. The Company used the equity method for this investment. The investment was sold as of January 1, 2023 for an amount of €25 thousands ($27 thousands as of January 1, 2023).
