These statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) which management believes necessary for a fair presentation of the statements and have been prepared on a consistent basis using the accounting policies described in the summary of Accounting Policies included in our Company's 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain financial information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although our Company believes that the accompanying disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The Notes to Financial Statements included in the 2019 Annual Report on Form10-K should be read in conjunction with the accompanying interim financial statements. The interim operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 may not be necessarily indicative of the operating results expected for the full year.


In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic which continues to spread throughout the United States. On March 19, 2020 the Governor of Pennsylvania declared a health emergency and issued an order to close all nonessential businesses until further notice. The mandated closure of nonessential businesses in Pennsylvania remains in effect as of the current date and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future in the portion of the state in which we conduct our business operations. While certain businesses in Pennsylvania have been granted permission to resume operations, they may be subject to significant restrictions on their operations by both state and local government mandates. Our operations are deemed to be essential and thus we remain open. However, disruptions to our business operations due to COVID-19 with a resultant impact on our results of operations could continue to occur as a result of quarantines of employees and suppliers in areas affected by the outbreak, availability of raw materials required to manufacture our products, disruption of supply chains that provide our raw materials, price increases of raw materials and supplies used in our production processes, facility closures of domestic and international customers who purchase and use our products, and travel and logistics restrictions affecting our inbound and outbound shipments in connection with the COVID-19 outbreak. While we expect this global COVID-19 pandemic to continue to negatively impact our results of operations, cash flow and financial position, the related financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.


Our Company follows Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 220 in reporting comprehensive income. Comprehensive income is a more inclusive financial reporting methodology that includes disclosure of certain financial information that historically has not been recognized in the calculation of net income. Since our Company has no items of other comprehensive income, comprehensive income is equal to net income.


Note 2. Stock Based Compensation


Our Company follows FASB ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, and uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to calculate the grant-date fair value of an award. At September 30, 2020, our Company did not have an active stock option plan. There was no unrecognized portion of expense related to stock option grants at September 30, 2020.


Note 3. Line of Credit


In November 2018, our Company negotiated a $150,000 revolving line of credit with a bank to provide a source of working capital, if required. The line of credit is secured by all the assets of our Company and bears interest at the bank’s prime rate for a period of one year and its prime rate plus 1.5% thereafter. The line of credit is subject to an annual review and quiet period. There have been no borrowings under the line of credit since its inception.


Note 4. Convertible Debentures


During the third quarter of 2020, the holders of all previously outstanding convertible debentures totaling approximately $97,900 that were due during the third quarter of 2020 elected to convert those debentures plus approximately $46,100 of accrued interest into 5,758,992 shares of restricted stock of our Company. At September 30, 2020, our Company had no convertible debentures outstanding. The convertible debentures bore interest at 7%. During the third quarter of 2019, the holders of approximately $30,400 of previously outstanding convertible debentures elected to convert those debentures plus approximately $12,300 of accrued interest into 1,707,982 shares of restricted stock of our Company.

Our Company also granted warrants in earlier periods to purchase 691,365 shares of our Company’s common stock at $0.02 per share to the holders of the debentures. The warrants are exercisable two years after issuance and expire seven years after issuance. The fair value of the warrants was determined using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The relative fair value of the warrants was recorded as a discount to the notes payable with an offsetting credit to additional paid-in capital since our Company determined that the warrants were an equity instrument in accordance with FASB ASC 815. The debt discount related to the warrant issuances has been accreted through interest expense over the term of the notes payable. During the third quarter of 2020, holders of 550,000 warrants exercised their warrants to purchase a total of 550,000 shares of our Company’s common stock.

Note 5. Other Income (Expenses)


Other income (expenses) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 includes interest on convertible debentures held by nine investors and interest earned on invested funds.


Note 6. Income Taxes


There is no provision for federal income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 due to the availability of net operating loss carryforwards. Our Company has established a valuation allowance for the entire amount of benefits resulting from our Company’s net operating loss carryforwards because our Company has determined that the realization of the net deferred tax asset is not assured.

Note 7. Earnings per Share


In accordance with FASB ASC 260, Earnings per Share, basic earnings per common share is computed using net earnings divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the periods presented. The computation of diluted earnings per common share involves the assumption that outstanding common shares are increased by shares issuable upon exercise of those warrants for which the market price exceeds the exercise price. The number of shares issuable upon the exercise of such warrants is decreased by shares that could have been purchased by our Company with related proceeds. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the number of incremental common shares resulting from the assumed conversion of warrants was 125,227 and 117,179, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the number of incremental common shares resulting from the assumed conversion of warrants was 375,673 and 372,764, respectively.

Note 9. Leases


Our Company conducts its operations in leased facilities under a non-cancelable operating lease expiring in 2024.


Due to the adoption of the new lease standard under the optional transition method which allows the entity to apply the new lease standard at the adoption date, our Company has capitalized the present value of the minimum lease payments commencing January 1, 2019, using an estimated incremental borrowing rate of 6.5%. The minimum lease payments do not include common area annual expenses which are considered to be non-lease components.


As of January 1, 2019 the operating lease right-of-use asset and operating lease liability amounted to $241,100 with no cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated deficit.


There are no other material operating leases. Our Company has elected not to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities arising from short-term leases.


Total lease expense under operating leases for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $13,300 and $40,000, respectively. Total lease expense under operating leases for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $13,300 and $40,000, respectively.

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


Forward-Looking Information


This report on Form 10-Q contains, and our officers and representatives may from time to time make, "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "goal," "seek," "believe," "project," "estimate," "expect," "strategy," "future," "likely," "may," "should," "will" and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we make regarding:


 

·

The ongoing impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on our business operations, revenues, employees, suppliers and customers

 

·

Expected operating results, such as revenue growth and earnings

 

·

Anticipated levels of capital expenditures for fiscal year 2020 and beyond

 

·

Current or future volatility in market conditions

 

·

Our belief that we have sufficient liquidity to fund our business operations during the next twelve months

 

·

Strategy for customer retention, growth, product development, market position, financial results and reserves

 

·

Strategy for risk management


Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following:


 

·

The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may impact our future financial and operational performance will be dependent on many factors that we may not be able to predict because they continue to change and evolve depending on both national and local circumstances among them government restrictions affecting our employees, customers and suppliers, changes in our revenues due to lower customer demand as a result of the pandemic and a potential inability to obtain raw materials due to lower availability. We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our business but we cannot accurately predict the extent to which it will adversely affect our future results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.

 

·

The extent to which we are successful in gaining new long-term relationships with customers or retaining significant existing customers and the level of service failures that could lead customers to use competitors' services.

 

·

Our ability to improve our current credit rating with our vendors and the impact on our raw materials and other costs and competitive position of doing so.

 

·

The impact of losing our intellectual property protections or the loss in value of our intellectual property.

 

·

Changes in customer demand.

 

·

The adequacy of our cash flow and earnings and other conditions which may affect our ability to timely service our debt obligations.

 

·

Such other factors as discussed throughout Part I, Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in this report, and throughout Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and in Item 1A. Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this report is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our condensed financial statements, included herewith. This discussion should not be construed to imply that the results discussed herein will necessarily continue into the future, or that any conclusion reached herein will necessarily be indicative of actual operating results in the future. Such discussion represents only the best present assessment of our management. This information should also be read in conjunction with our audited historical financial statements which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2020, as amended on April 29, 2020.


Background Overview


Nocopi Technologies, Inc. develops and markets specialty reactive inks for applications in the large educational and toy products market. We also develop and market technologies for document and product authentication, which we believe can reduce losses caused by fraudulent document reproduction or by product counterfeiting and/or diversion. We derive our revenues primarily from licensing our technologies on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis to licensees who incorporate our technologies into their product offering and from selling products incorporating our technologies to the licensees or to their licensed printers.


Unless the context otherwise requires, all references to the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us” and other similar terms means Nocopi Technologies, Inc., a Maryland corporation.


Effects of COVID-19


To serve our customers while also providing for the safety of our employees and service providers, we have adapted various steps to protect our employees. Any employee who is uncomfortable coming into our facilities may choose not to come in. We have a large enough facility to enable all of our employees to social distance and we follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Our production employees work with chemicals and they have always used masks, respirators, etc., even before COVID-19. As a result, we continue to maintain the same level of productivity and effectiveness as prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The impact of COVID-19 on our Company’s financial results during the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 resulted primarily from a significant increase in the price of raw materials used in certain of our Company’s products caused by shortages of these ingredients as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic along with a mix of our Company’s products purchased by our licensees’ third party printers toward certain products with formulations that require ingredients whose prices have increased as a result of COVID-19. We expect these higher raw material prices to negatively affect subsequent quarters until the shortages are alleviated. We expect the fourth quarter to see a similar impact from COVID-19 and the various operational adjustments we made. The full extent of the impact to our Company due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for our fourth quarter and beyond cannot be currently determined. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may impact our future financial and operational performance will be dependent on many factors that we may not be able to predict because they continue to change and evolve depending on both national and local circumstances among them government restrictions affecting our employees, customers and suppliers, changes in our revenues due to lower customer demand as a result of the pandemic and a potential inability to obtain raw materials due to lower availability. We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our business but we cannot accurately predict the extent to which it will adversely affect our future results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.


To date, we have not suffered a drop off in customer orders and total earned royalties in the entertainment and toy products market as a result of COVID-19, but we continue to experience a negative impact on revenues in our smaller anti-counterfeiting and anti-diversion products market due to closures of certain printing facilities that utilize these technologies and anticipate that these closures may continue for a period of time. We continue to retain revenues at historical levels in the entertainment and toy products market through the current date despite the downturns in the overall economy. While the products of our licensees in the larger entertainment and toy products market are sold by both large and smaller retailers, some of whom remain open, and are also available for purchase online, we believe that revenues may not continue to be achieved at levels experienced to the current date due to the negative economic conditions that are expected to continue over the balance of the year and beyond as a result of COVID-19. A slowdown in overall consumer spending may affect the sales of products marketed by our licensees. Our major licensees in the entertainment and toy products market are large, well-known businesses in this market with whom we believe our long-term relationship will not be adversely affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Results of Operations


Our Company’s revenues are derived from (a) royalties paid by licensees of our technologies, (b) fees for the provision of technical services to licensees and (c) from the direct sale of (i) products incorporating our technologies, such as inks, security paper and pressure sensitive labels, and (ii) equipment used to support the application of our technologies, such as ink-jet printing systems. Royalties consist of guaranteed minimum royalties payable by our licensees in certain cases and additional royalties which typically vary with the licensee’s sales or production of products incorporating the licensed technology. Service fees and sales revenues vary directly with the number of units of service or product provided.


Our Company recognizes revenue on its lines of business as follows:


 

a.

License fees for the use of our technology and royalties with guaranteed minimum amounts are recognized at a point in time when the term begins;

 

b.

Product sales are recognized at the time of the transfer of goods to customers at an amount that our Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for these goods, which is at the time of shipment; and

 

c.

Fees for technical services are recognized at the time of the transfer of services to customers at an amount that our Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for the services, which is when the service has been rendered.


We believe that, as fixed cost reductions beyond those we have achieved in recent years may not be achievable, our operating results are substantially dependent on revenue levels. Because revenues derived from licenses and royalties carry a much higher gross profit margin than other revenues, operating results are also substantially affected by changes in revenue mix.


Both the absolute amount of our Company’s revenues and the mix among the various sources of revenue are subject to substantial fluctuation. We have a relatively small number of substantial customers rather than a large number of small customers. Accordingly, changes in the revenue received from a significant customer can have a substantial effect on our Company’s total revenue, revenue mix and overall financial performance. Such changes may result from a substantial customer’s product development delays, engineering changes, changes in product marketing strategies, production requirements and the like. In addition, certain customers have, from time to time, sought to renegotiate certain provisions of their license agreements and, when our Company agrees to revise such terms, revenues from the customer may be affected.


Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $754,800 compared to $637,500 in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of $117,300, or approximately 18%. Licenses, royalties and fees decreased by $36,100, or approximately 19%, to $153,300 in the third quarter of 2020 from $189,400 in the third quarter of 2019. The decrease in licenses, royalties and fees in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 is due primarily to lower royalties from our Company’s licensees in both the entertainment and security markets. We cannot assure you that the marketing and product development activities of our Company’s licensees or other businesses in the entertainment and toy products market will produce a significant increase in revenues for our Company, nor can the timing of any potential revenue increases be predicted, particularly given the uncertain economic conditions being experienced worldwide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that is continuing to negatively impact all worldwide economies.


Product and other sales increased by $153,400, or approximately 34%, to $601,500 in the third quarter of 2020 from $448,100 in the third quarter of 2019. Sales of ink increased in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 due primarily to higher ink shipments to the third party authorized printers used by two of our Company’s major licensees in the entertainment and toy products market offset in part by lower ink shipments to our Company’s licensees in the retail receipt and document fraud market. In the third quarter of 2020, our Company derived revenues of approximately $699,100 from our licensees and their authorized printers in the entertainment and toy products market compared to revenues of approximately $555,900 in the third quarter of 2019.


For the first nine months of 2020, revenues were $1,902,400, representing an increase of $339,400, or approximately 22%, from revenues of $1,563,000 in the first nine months of 2019. The decrease in licenses, royalties and fees is due primarily to lower guaranteed licensing revenue of approximately $200,000 in the first six months of 2020 from one licensee in the entertainment and toy products market as a result of the adoption of ASU 214-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers in the second quarter of 2018. We cannot assure you that the marketing and product development activities of our Company’s licensees or other businesses in the entertainment and toy products market will produce a significant increase in revenues for our Company, nor can the timing of any potential revenue increases be predicted, particularly given the uncertain economic conditions being experienced worldwide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that is continuing to negatively impact all worldwide economies.

Product and other sales increased by $486,300, or approximately 49%, to $1,477,400 in the first nine months of 2020 from $991,100 in the first nine months of 2019. Sales of ink increased in the nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019 due primarily to higher ink shipments to the third party authorized printers used by two of our Company’s major licensees in the entertainment and toy products market offset in part by lower ink shipments to our Company’s licensees in the retail receipt and document fraud market. Our Company derived revenues of approximately $1,727,800 from licensees and their authorized printers in the entertainment and toy products market in the first nine months of 2020 compared to revenues of approximately $1,327,900 in the first nine months of 2019.


Our Company’s gross profit decreased to $425,500 in the third quarter of 2020, or approximately 56% of revenues, from $429,500 in the third quarter of 2019 or approximately 67% of revenues. Licenses, royalties and fees have historically carried a higher gross profit than product and other sales. Such other sales generally consist of supplies or other manufactured products which incorporate our Company’s technologies or equipment used to support the application of its technologies. These items (except for inks which are manufactured by our Company) are generally purchased from third-party vendors and resold to the end-user or licensee and carry a lower gross profit than licenses, royalties and fees. The lower gross profit in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 results primarily from lower gross revenues from licenses, royalties and fees offset in part by higher product and other sales in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019.


For the first nine months of 2020, gross profit was $1,016,000, or approximately 53% of revenues, compared to $1,084,500, or approximately 69% of revenues in 2019. The lower gross profit in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019 results primarily from lower licenses, royalties and fees due to the adoption of Topic 606 in 2018 offset in part by higher gross revenues from product and other sales in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019. As the variable component of cost of revenues related to licenses, royalties and fees is a low percentage of these revenues and the fixed component is not substantial, period to period changes in revenues from licenses, royalties and fees can significantly affect both the gross profit from licenses, royalties and fees as well as overall gross profit. The gross profit from licenses, royalties and fees decreased to approximately 60% in the third quarter of 2020 compared to approximately 78% in the third quarter of 2019 and to approximately 60% of revenues from licenses, royalties and fees in the first nine months of 2020 from approximately 83% in the first nine months of 2019.


The gross profit, expressed as a percentage of revenues, of product and other sales is dependent on both the overall sales volumes of product and other sales and on the mix of the specific goods produced and/or sold. The gross profit from product and other sales decreased to approximately 56% of revenues in the third quarter of 2020 compared to approximately 63% of revenues in the third quarter of 2019. For the first nine months of 2020, the gross profit, expressed as a percentage of revenues, decreased to approximately 52% of revenues from product and other sales compared to approximately 62% of revenues from product and other sales in the first nine months of 2019. The decrease in both the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 is due to: a) a significant increase in the cost of raw materials utilized by our Company in the manufacture of certain of its products as a result of price increases related to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the availability and supply of these raw materials in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 (we are not passing along these cost increases to our customers at this time); b) an unfavorable mix of products sold whereby the increases in purchases of our Company’s products by the licensed printers of its licensees in the entertainment and toy products market in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 were of products manufactured by our Company whose raw material prices were most affected by shortages created by the COVID-19 pandemic and c) increased production salaries related to a staffing addition, higher duties and equipment depreciation in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of 2019.


Research and development expenses of $40,700 and $123,700 in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively, were comparable to $45,200 and $122,600 in the third quarter and first nine months of 2019, respectively.


Sales and marketing expenses increased in the third quarter of 2020 to $90,900 from $81,000 in the third quarter of 2019. Sales and marketing expenses increased in the first nine months of 2020 to $260,900 from $224,200 in the first nine months of 2019. This increase is due primarily to higher commission expense on the higher level of sales in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of 2019.


General and administrative expenses increased in the third quarter of 2020 to $123,800 from $84,200 in the third quarter of 2019. General and administrative expenses increased in the first nine months of 2020 to $383,500 from $265,200 in the first nine months of 2019. The increase in third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019 is due primarily to higher public relations and salary expenses in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019. The increase in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019 is due primarily to higher public relations and salary expenses in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019.

Other income (expenses) in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 and 2019 included interest on convertible debentures held by seven investors and interest earned on invested funds.


Income taxes in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 and 2019 result from limitations placed on income tax net operating loss deductions by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the first quarter of 2020, our Company reversed $47,400 of accrued Pennsylvania income taxes that are not payable.


The lower net income of $163,100 in the third quarter of 2020 compared to net income of $206,800 in the third quarter of 2019 resulted primarily from a lower gross profit on a lower level of licenses, royalties and fees, higher cost of revenues and higher operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019. The lower net income of $286,500 in the first nine months of 2020 compared to net income of $441,100 in the first nine months of 2019 resulted primarily from a lower gross profit on a lower level of licenses, royalties and fees, higher cost of revenues and higher operating expenses in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019 offset in part by the reversal of income taxes in the first quarter of 2020.


Plan of Operation, Liquidity and Capital Resources


During the first nine months of 2020, our Company’s cash increased to $1,428,900 at September 30, 2020 from $688,000 at December 31, 2019. During the first nine months of 2020, our Company generated $768,500 from its operating activities, received $11,000 upon the exercise of warrants and used $38,600 for capital expenditures.


During the first nine months of 2020, our Company’s revenues increased approximately 22% primarily as a result of higher sales of ink to the authorized printers of our Company’s licensees in the entertainment and toy products market offset in part by lower royalty revenues from two licensees in the entertainment and toy products market.


Our Company’s total overhead expenses increased in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019 and our Company’s net interest expense decreased in the first nine months of 2020 compared to the first nine months of 2019. As a result of these factors, our Company generated net income of $286,500 in the first nine months of 2020 compared to $441,100 in the first nine months of 2019. Our Company had positive operating cash flow of $768,500 during the first nine months of 2020 and at September 30, 2020, had positive working capital of $2,469,900 and stockholders’ equity of $3,231,200. For the full year of 2019, our Company had net income of $754,900 and had positive operating cash flow of $360,600. At December 31, 2019, our Company had positive working capital of $1,835,300 and stockholders’ equity of $2,789,700.


In November 2018, our Company negotiated a $150,000 revolving line of credit (“Line of Credit”) with a bank to provide a source of working capital, if required. The Line of Credit is secured by all the assets of our Company and bears interest at the bank’s prime rate for a period of one year and its prime rate plus 1.5% thereafter. The Line of Credit is subject to an annual review and quiet period. There have been no borrowings under the Line of Credit since its inception. We may need to obtain additional capital in the future to further support the working capital requirements associated with our existing revenue base and to develop new revenue sources. We cannot assure you that we will be successful in obtaining such additional capital, if needed. We continue to maintain a cost containment program including curtailment, where possible, of discretionary research and development and sales and marketing expenses.


Our plan of operation for the twelve months beginning with the date of this quarterly report consists of concentrating available human and financial resources to continue to capitalize on the specific business relationships our Company has developed in the entertainment and toy products market. This includes two licensees that have been marketing products incorporating our Company’s technologies since 2012. These two licensees maintain a significant presence in the entertainment and toy products market and are well known and highly regarded participants in this market. We anticipate that these two licensees will expand their current offerings that incorporate our technologies and will introduce and market new products that will incorporate our technologies available to them under their license agreements with our Company. We will continue to develop various applications for these licensees. We also plan to expand our licensee base in the entertainment and toy market. We currently have additional licensees marketing or developing products incorporating our technologies in certain geographic and niche markets of the overall entertainment and toy products market.

Our Company maintains its presence in the retail loss prevention market and believes that revenue growth in this market can be achieved through increased security ink sales to its licensees in this market. We will continue to adjust our production and technical staff as necessary and, subject to available financial resources, invest in capital equipment needed to support potential growth in ink production requirements beyond our current capacity. Additionally, we will pursue opportunities to market our current technologies in specific security and non-security markets. There can be no assurances that these efforts will enable our Company to generate additional revenues and positive cash flow.


Our Company has received, and may in the future seek, additional capital in the form of debt, equity or both, to support our working capital requirements and to provide funding for other business opportunities. Beyond the Line of Credit, we cannot assure you that if we require additional capital, that we will be successful in obtaining such additional capital, or that such additional capital, if obtained, will enable our Company to generate additional revenues and positive cash flow.


As previously stated, we generate a significant portion of our total revenues from licensees in the entertainment and toy products market. These licensees generally sell their products through retail outlets. In the future, such sales may be adversely affected by changes in consumer spending that may occur as a result of an uncertain economic environment throughout the balance of 2020 and beyond due to the COVID-19 virus and its effect on the global economy. As a result, our revenues, results of operations and liquidity may be negatively impacted.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION


Item 1A.  Risk Factors


The following risk factors supplement the Risk Factors described in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as amended, and should be read in conjunction therewith.


We expect the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to negatively impact our results of operations, cash flow and financial position.


The negative impact of COVID-19 on our Company’s financial results during the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 resulted primarily from a significant increase in the price of raw materials used in certain of our Company’s products caused by shortages of these ingredients as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic along with a mix of our Company’s products purchased by our licensees’ third party printers toward certain products with formulations that require ingredients whose prices have increased as a result of COVID-19. We expect these higher raw material prices to negatively affect subsequent quarters until the shortages are alleviated. We expect the fourth quarter to see a similar impact from COVID-19 and the various operational adjustments we made.


Other disruptions to our business operations due to COVID-19 with a resultant impact on our results of operations are expected to continue to occur as a result of quarantines of employees and suppliers in areas affected by the outbreak, availability of raw materials required to manufacture our products, disruption of supply chains that provide our raw materials, price increases of raw materials and supplies used in our production processes, facility closures of domestic and international customers who purchase and use our products, and travel and logistics restrictions affecting our inbound and outbound shipments in connection with the COVID-19 outbreak. While we expect this global COVID-19 pandemic to continue to negatively impact our results of operations, cash flow and financial position, the related financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.


The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will negatively impact our results of operations, cash flow and financial position is highly uncertain and cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.


The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant worldwide uncertainty, volatility and economic disruption. The extent to which COVID-19 will negatively impact our results of operations, cash flow and financial position is dependent upon numerous factors, many of which are highly uncertain, rapidly changing and uncontrollable. These factors include, but are not limited to: (i) the duration and scope of the pandemic; (ii) governmental, business and individual actions that have been and continue to be taken in response to the pandemic, including travel restrictions, quarantines, social distancing, work-from-home and shelter-in-place orders and shut-downs; (iii) the impact on U.S. and global economies and the timing and rate of economic recovery; (iv) potential adverse effects on the financial markets and access to capital; (v) potential goodwill or other impairment charges; and (vi) the ability of our licensees and other customers to sell products that utilize or incorporate our technology.
