ANGEION CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

1.           Basis of Presentation and Description of Business

 

Angeion Corporation (the “Company”), through its Medical Graphics Corporation subsidiary, designs and markets non-invasive cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems that are sold under the MedGraphics and New Leaf brand and trade names. These cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems have a wide range of applications in healthcare, wellness, and health and fitness.

 

The consolidated balance sheet as of July 31, 2011, the consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, and consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related information presented in these notes have been prepared by management in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X, without audit. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of results have been included. The consolidated balance sheet at October 31, 2010 was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. Operating results for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending October 31, 2011. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in Angeion Corporation’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2010.

 

Comprehensive (loss) income is a measure of all non-owner changes in shareholders’ equity and includes items such as net loss, certain foreign currency translation items, minimum pension liability adjustments and changes in the value of available-for-sale securities. Comprehensive (loss) income for Angeion Corporation was ($85,000) and $129,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and ($546,000) and ($1,256,000) for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

 

Preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities made in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates include accounts receivable, product warranty and inventory reserves, a deferred tax asset valuation allowance, and depreciable lives of property, equipment and intangible assets.

 

The Company determined there were no events subsequent to July 31, 2011, that required recognition or disclosure in these consolidated financial statements.

 

Certain reclassifications of prior period presentations of costs of revenues between the cost of equipment and supplies and the cost of service revenues have been made to conform with current period presentation. The reclassifications had no impact on gross margin, net loss or shareholders’ equity.

 

2.           Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, transfer of title has occurred or services have been rendered, the selling price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. The Company’s products are sold for cash or on unsecured credit terms requiring payment based on the shipment date. Credit terms can vary between customers due to many factors, but are generally, on average, 30-60 days. Revenue, net of discounts, is generally recognized upon shipment or delivery to customers in accordance with written sales terms. Standard sales terms do not include customer acceptance conditions, future credits, rebates, price protection or general rights of return. Although the terms of sales to both domestic customers and international distributors are identical, adherence to these terms is more pervasive with domestic customers than with international customers. In instances when a customer order specifies final acceptance of the system, revenue is deferred until all customer acceptance criteria have been met. Estimated warranty obligations are recorded upon shipment.

Service contract revenue is based on a stated contractual rate and is deferred and recognized ratably over the service period, which is typically from one to four years. Deferred income associated with service contracts and supplies was $2,362,000 and $2,232,000 at July 31, 2011 and October 31, 2010, respectively. Revenue from installation and training services provided to customers is deferred until the service has been performed. The amount of deferred installation and training revenue was $110,000 and $125,000 at July 31, 2011 and October 31, 2010, respectively.

 

When a sale involves multiple deliverables, such as equipment, installation services and training, the amount of the consideration from an arrangement is allocated to each respective element based on the residual method and recognized as revenue when revenue recognition criteria for each element is met. Consideration allocated to delivered equipment is equal to the total arrangement consideration less the fair value of installation and training. The fair value of installation and training services is based on specific objective evidence, including third-party invoices.

 

No customer accounted for more than 10% of revenues for any of the three- or nine-month periods ended July 31, 2011 and 2010.

 

3.           Stock-Based Compensation and Stock Options

 

The Angeion Corporation 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2007 Plan”) and the Angeion Corporation 2002 Stock Option Plan (the “2002 Plan”) both provide that incentive stock options and nonqualified stock options to purchase shares of common stock may be granted at prices determined by the Compensation Committee, except that the purchase price of incentive stock options may not be less than the fair market value of the stock at date of grant. Under the 2007 Plan, all options expire no later than seven years from the grant date while under the 2002 Plan, all options expire no later than ten years from the grant date. Options under both plans are subject to various vesting schedules. In addition, the 2007 Plan allows the granting of restricted stock awards, stock appreciation rights and performance stock.

 

Total share-based compensation expense included in the Company’s statement of operations for the three months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 was $89,000 and $152,000, respectively and for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 was $198,000 and $576,000, respectively.

    For the nine months ended  
    July 31, 2011     July 31, 2010  
    Shares     Weighted Average Exercise Price     Shares     Weighted Average Exercise Price  
Outstanding at beginning of year     600,573     $ 6.12       695,787     $ 6.13

Outstanding at end of period     393,907     $ 6.28       644,407     $ 6.11  

 

The following table summarizes information concerning stock options outstanding as of July 31, 2011:

5.08       52,500       4.82       52,500  
5.16       38,251       4.08       26,176  
5.66       46,668       3.80       46,668  
6.23       24,500       2.79       24,500

7.86       97,191       3.25       97,191  
Total       393,907       3.45       381,832  

 

The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the three months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 was $0. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 was $105,000 and $15,000, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options outstanding and exercisable at July 31, 2011 was $56,000, which was calculated using the closing stock price as of July 31, 2011 less the exercise price of in-the-money options. The Company issues new shares when stock options are exercised. Cash received from the exercise of stock options was $48,000 and $7,000 for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively and there was no related tax benefit realized due to the Company’s current tax loss position. Unrecognized compensation expense related to outstanding stock options as of July 31, 2011 was $5,000, is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 0.08 years, and will be adjusted for any future changes in estimated forfeitures.

 

Valuation Assumptions

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model (“Black-Scholes model”) to determine the fair value of stock options as of the grant date. The fair value of stock options under the Black-Scholes model requires management to make assumptions regarding projected employee stock option exercise behaviors, risk-free interest rates, volatility of the Company’s stock price and expected dividends. The Company did not grant any options during the nine months ended July 31, 2011 or 2010.

Restricted Stock Awards

 

Restricted stock awards are awards of common stock that are subject to restrictions on transfer and to a risk of forfeiture if the award recipient leaves the Company before the restrictions lapse. The holder of a restricted stock award is generally entitled at all times on and after the date of issuance of the restricted shares to exercise the rights of a shareholder of the Company, including the right to vote the shares. The value of stock awards is established by the market price on the date of its grant.

 

The following table summarizes the Company’s Board of Directors’ authorized issuance of restricted stock awards and the awards unvested and outstanding at July 31, 2011:

 

Award Date   Award Shares     Vesting Period     Outstanding and Unvested at July 31, 2011  
August 28, 2008     74,667       Over three-year period       10,664  
June 3, 2009     180,668       Over three-year period       27,552  
December 15, 2010     25,000       Over three-year period        
March 16, 2011     10,000       Performance shares, for period through October 31, 2011        
April 11, 2011     14,245       Through October 31, 2011       14,245  
May 16, 2011     40,000       Over three-year period       40,000  
May 26, 2011     36,365       Through earlier of 2012 annual meeting or May 25, 2012       36,365  
      380,945               128,826  

 

As of July 31, 2011, 126,223 of the 380,945 shares awarded have vested, 125,886 were forfeited and 128,826 are outstanding and subject to future vesting. The Company granted 125,610 restricted stock awards during the nine months ended July 31, 2011.

 

Unrecognized compensation expense related to outstanding restricted stock awards as of July 31, 2011 was $245,000. The Company expects to recognize this over a weighted average period of 2.21 years.

 

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

 

The Angeion Corporation 2003 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“Stock Plan”) allows participating employees to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock at a discount through payroll deductions. The Stock Plan is available to all employees subject to certain eligibility requirements. Terms of the Stock Plan provide that participating employees may purchase the Company’s common stock on a voluntary after-tax basis. Employees may purchase the Company’s common stock at a price that is no less than the lower of 95% of the fair market value of one share of common stock at the beginning or end of each stock purchase period or phase. The Stock Plan is carried out in six-month phases, with phases beginning on January 1 and July 1 of each calendar year. For the phase that ended on December 31, 2010 and June 30, 2011, employees purchased 2,972 and 2,065 shares at prices of $3.78 and $4.41 per share, respectively. As of July 31, 2011, the Company has withheld approximately $2,000 from employees participating in the phase that began on July 1, 2011. At July 31, 2011, 49,640 shares of common stock were available for future purchase under the Stock Plan.

6.           Warranty Reserve

 

Sales of the Company’s equipment are subject to a warranty obligation. Equipment warranties typically extend for a period of twelve months from the date of installation. Standard warranty terms are included in customer contracts. Under the terms of these warranties, the Company is obligated to repair or replace any components or assemblies that it deems defective in workmanship or materials. The Company reserves the right to reject warranty claims where it determines that failure is due to normal wear, customer modifications, improper maintenance or misuse. The Company maintains a warranty reserve that reflects the estimated expenses that it will incur to honor the warranties on its products. The Company adjusts the warranty reserve based on the number and type of equipment that is subject to warranty, adjusted for the remaining months of warranty coverage. The warranty reserve adjustment reflects the Company’s historical warranty experience based on type of equipment. Warranty provisions and claims for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 were as follows:

 

(In thousands)   2011     2010  
Balance, beginning of period   $ 175     $ 143

   Warranty claims     (218 )     (170 )
Balance, end of period   $ 115     $ 135  

 

7.           Net Loss per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted income (loss) per share is computed similarly to basic income (loss) per share except that in computing income per share the weighted average shares outstanding are increased to include additional shares from the assumed exercise of stock options or warrants and vesting of restricted stock awards, if these events are dilutive. The number of additional shares is calculated by assuming that shares are issued from the exercise of outstanding stock options or warrants and the vesting of outstanding restricted share grants and that the cash proceeds from the exercise and the employment value represented by the unamortized stock-based compensation were used to acquire shares of common stock at the average market price during the reporting period.

 

Shares used in the loss per share computations are as follows:

 

    Three months Ended
July 31,
    Nine months Ended
July 31,
 
(In thousands)   2011     2010     2011     2010  
Weighted average common shares outstanding – basic     3,792       4,131       3,772       4,145  
Dilutive effect of stock options and restricted stock awards           110              
Weighted average common shares outstanding – diluted     3,792       4,241       3,772       4,145  

  

8.           Income Taxes

 

The Company has recorded a provision for taxes from operations of $10,000 and $8,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. For the nine-month periods ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, the provision for taxes from operations was $30,000 and $24,000, respectively.

 

11

 

Table of Contents

 

At October 31, 2010, the reserve for uncertain tax positions was $39,000 and did not change during the first three quarters of fiscal 2011. The entire amount of the reserve related to uncertainties regarding income tax nexus with various states in which the Company operates. Included in the reserve is $14,000 of estimated interest and penalties. The total amount of the reserve has increased the Company’s effective tax rate, and would therefore decrease the effective tax rate if removed.

 

Estimated interest and penalties related to potential underpayment of income taxes are classified as a component of tax expense in the consolidated statement of operations. The Company does not expect the amount of reserves for uncertain tax positions to change significantly in the next twelve months. Similarly, the Company does not anticipate that the total reserve for uncertain tax positions will significantly change due to the settlement of audits and the expiration of statutes of limitations within the next twelve months.

 

The Company files a consolidated federal income tax return in the United States federal jurisdiction and files various combined and separate tax returns in several state and local jurisdictions. With limited exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to United States federal, state and local tax examinations by tax authorities for fiscal years ending prior to November 1, 2008. There is no statute of limitations for assessments related to jurisdictions where the Company may have a nexus but has chosen not to file an income tax return.

 

The Company had a federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forward at October 31, 2010 of approximately $16.3 million. This amount is the remaining utilizable NOL carry forward following the application of a limit due to an ownership change under Internal Revenue Code Section 382 that occurred during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2006 and NOL’s generated since then. These NOL carry forwards are available to offset a portion of taxes payable in future years. If not used, these NOL carry forwards will expire in the years 2011 through 2029. The Company also has $109,000 of alternative minimum tax credit carry forwards that do not have expiration dates. Even though the Company has substantial NOL carry forwards, any income may still be subject to U.S. and State alternative minimum taxes.

 

The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax asset based on its belief that it was more likely than not that the asset would not be realized in the future. Although this determination was made in a prior fiscal year, it is still applicable as of July 31, 2011, and the Company will continue to assess the need for a full valuation allowance in future quarters. Any reduction of the valuation allowance related to post-bankruptcy net operating losses and other deferred tax assets would (i) first affect earnings as a reduction in the provision for taxes and (ii) thereafter, the remaining $0.9 million would increase additional paid-in capital as these deferred tax assets represent employee stock-based compensation tax deductions included in the Company’s net operating losses.

 

9.           Litigation

 

From time to time, the Company is subject to claims and lawsuits that have been filed in the ordinary course of business. Also, from time to time, the Company initiates lawsuits against others to enforce patents or to seek collection of debts in the ordinary course of business. There is no material pending or outstanding litigation at the current time.

 

10.        Separation Accrual

 

During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company incurred a charge of $418,000 included in general and administrative expenses, consisting of an accrual of separation payments for the former chief executive officer of $451,000 reduced by the effect of forfeitures of previously expensed unvested option and restricted stock award costs.

Table of Contents

 

During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company incurred a charge of $91,000 included in general and administrative expenses, consisting of an accrual of separation payments for a second former chief executive officer of $176,000 reduced by the effect of forfeitures of previously expensed unvested option and restricted stock award costs and the reversal of short-term management incentives accrued in the first and second quarters of fiscal 2011.

11.        Commitment

 

On April 15, 2011, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $2,000,000 of its outstanding shares of common stock in the open market or privately negotiated transactions in the period until July 31, 2012. On May 26, 2011, the Board increased this authorization to $3,000,000 for the same period. The Company repurchased 34,166 shares at an average price of $4.28 in the quarter ended July 31, 2011. The remaining approved authorization is $2,852,000 at July 31, 2011.

 

On August 16, 2011, the Company extended its lease on its Vadnais Heights manufacturing facility for an additional 12 months to December 31, 2012. The remaining commitment on this lease at July 31, 2011 is $425,000.

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

 

Overview

 

The Company, through its Medical Graphics Corporation subsidiary, designs and markets non-invasive cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems that are sold under the MedGraphics and New Leaf brand and trade names. These cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems have a wide range of applications in healthcare, wellness and health and fitness. Revenues consist of equipment and supply sales as well as service revenues. Equipment and supply sales reflect sales of non-invasive cardiorespiratory diagnostic equipment and aftermarket sales of peripherals and supplies. Service revenues consist of revenues from extended service contracts, non-warranty service visits and additional training.

 

Total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $6.8 million, a decrease of 3.8% from $7.1 million in fiscal 2010. Operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $4.0 million, an increase of 1.1% from the same period in fiscal 2010. Net loss for the three months ended July 31, 2011 was ($81,000), or ($0.02) per share, compared to a net income of $126,000, or $0.03 per share, for the same period in fiscal 2010.

 

Total revenues for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 were $20.7 million, an increase of 0.5% from $20.6 million in fiscal 2010. Operating expenses for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 were $12.3 million, unchanged from the same period in fiscal 2010. Net loss for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 was $543,000, or $0.14 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.30 per share, for the same period in fiscal 2010.

Table of Contents

 

Revenue

 

Total revenue for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011, (decreased) increased by (3.8)% and 0.5%, respectively, compared to the same periods in fiscal 2010. Domestic revenue for the three months ended July 31, 2011 increased by 4.7% and international revenue decreased by 31.9% from prior year period levels, with decreases in international revenues, from what we believe is general financial tightening, broadly based geographically. The increase in revenue of $0.1 million for the nine-month period ended July 31, 2011 was primarily due to the $0.7 million domestic revenue increase offset by reduced international sales, primarily in our European and Latin America regions.

 

Gross Margin

 

Gross margin percentage for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011 decreased 0.2 percentage points to 57.6% and increased 3.4 percentage points to 57.1% of revenue, respectively, compared to 57.8% and 53.7%, respectively, for the same periods in fiscal 2010. Gross margin percentage for the nine-month period increased as a result of continuing manufacturing efficiencies following right sizing actions taken in the third fiscal quarter of 2010. Gross margins for the three-month period ended July 31, 2011 are comparable to the 2010 fiscal third quarter level. Overall, we expect to sustain gross margins in the mid-50% range absent significant changes in volume and mix of products.

 

Selling and Marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses were unchanged for the three-month period ended July 31, 2011, and increased to $6.1 million for the nine-month period ended July 31, 2011 from $5.8 million for the same periods in fiscal 2010. Expenses for the three-month period ended July 31, 2011 increased from personnel transfers from research and development to sales and marketing roles by $77,000 and decreased from incentive programs by $50,000. Expenses for the nine-month period ended July 31, 2011 increased from personnel additions and transfers from research and development roles by $87,000 and $255,000, respectively and decreased from incentive programs by $80,000. Stock-based compensation expenses decreased by $15,000 and $47,000 for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011, respectively, compared to the prior year periods.

 

General and Administrative

 

For the three months ended July 31, 2011, general and administrative expenses decreased by $228,000, or 20.0%, compared to the same period in fiscal 2010, due primarily to $135,000 in decreased compensation related costs and $46,000 in reduced stock-based compensation in relation to employee changes from the second half of fiscal 2010 and onward. In addition, the three-month periods ending July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, included $196,000 of costs related to a change at the chief executive officer role and $245,000 of costs, including related legal and board of director expenses, in relation to a change in the chief financial officer role.

 

For the nine months ended July 31, 2011, general and administrative expenses decreased $76,000 compared to the same period in fiscal 2010. The fiscal 2011 expenses included charges of $418,000 (net of a $33,000 offset for reduction in stock-based compensation) related to the separation of our former chief executive officer in the 2011 first fiscal quarter and $196,000 (including related legal and board of director costs of $55,000 and net of a $35,000 offset for reduction in stock-based compensation) related to the separation of our former chief executive officer in the 2011 third fiscal quarter. The nine-month period ended July 31, 2010 included a charge of $245,000 (including $165,000 of legal and board of director costs and net of a $24,000 offset for reduction in stock-based compensation). The general and administrative costs without these special charges decreased $455,000, due primarily to $323,000 in decreased compensation related costs resulting from administrative staff changes in fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011 and $199,000 in reduced stock-based compensation related to other employee and board of director changes occurring in the second half of fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011. Certain of these cost reductions are not expected to be ongoing as additional hires to refill open positions have occurred in the 2011 fiscal third quarter.

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011 were $1.0 and $2.7 million, respectively, compared to $0.8 and $2.9 million, respectively, for the same periods in fiscal 2010.

 

Expenses in the three- and nine-month periods ended July 31, 2011 compared to the same periods in fiscal 2010 were reduced $57,000 and $236,000, respectively for roles transferred to selling and marketing. Staff personnel and consulting time related to planning and development expenses were increased by $321,000 and $181,000 in the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011, respectively, to advance software and hardware development initiatives to enhance current product offerings and develop future new products and by $88,000 of recruiting costs for the nine months of fiscal 2011 related to the addition of a vice president of engineering and others in the third fiscal quarter.

 

In the 2010 fiscal first and second quarter, the Company expensed all expenditures related to its ongoing research and development project to migrate the MedGraphics and New Leaf products operating software platform to next-generation technologies, given the planning and development nature of these expenditures. Approximately $82,000 and $219,000 of incurred costs were capitalized in fiscal 2011 as software-in-progress for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011, respectively. These projects have achieved “technological feasibility” and the costs have then been capitalized until the product is available for sale. As we have discussed previously, while this capitalized cost spending affects our cash flows and to a lesser extent our net loss, we believe that these investments provide the foundation for a future product pipeline of new integrated patient care and consumer health programs that will deliver sustained growth. The majority of these software projects will be ongoing with a portion continuing into fiscal 2012, when we expect the benefits of this effort will become available for use in our product offerings.

 

Amortization of Intangibles

 

Amortization of developed technology was $105,000 and $315,000, respectively, for the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

 

Interest Income

 

Interest income for the three- and nine-month periods ended July 31, 2011 increased $10,000 and $14,000, respectively, compared to the same periods in fiscal 2010. The Company maintains the highest degree of safety in its investments, while avoiding the investment risk of other forms of available investments, and has purchased short and medium term bank certificates of deposit and United States Treasury Bills to improve its interest return as rates have declined to historic lows in the past several quarters.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

The Company is required to present the provision for taxes as if it were fully taxable in accordance with Financial Accountings Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification 852-740. In prior years, the Company utilized its pre-emergence bankruptcy NOLs in the calculation of its income taxes payable but is still required to pay U.S. and State alternative minimum taxes (“AMT”) in certain jurisdictions, even though it has substantial federal and state NOL carry forwards available. During the three and nine month periods ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company did not use any tax benefits related to pre-emergence bankruptcy NOLs. See note 8 to the consolidated financial statements, “Income Taxes,” in this Form 10-Q for additional discussion of the accounting for income taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has financed its liquidity needs over the last several years through revenue generated by its operations.

 

The Company had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $9.0 million and working capital of $12.9 million as of July 31, 2011. During the first nine months of fiscal 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $543,000. Cash flows used in operating activities were $789,000, primarily due to increases in inventory of $407,000 and decreases of $1,060,000 in accounts payable and accrued employee compensation, collectively resulting from working capital management and seasonal payments, offset by $710,000 from reductions in accounts receivables and increases in deferred income, together with the add-back of non-cash expenses totaling $712,000 for depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation.

 

For the nine months ended July 31, 2011, the Company used $427,000 in cash for the purchase of property and equipment and intangible assets and generated $2,476,000 from the sale of investments.

 

The Company used cash in financing activities of $119,000 during the nine months ended July 31, 2011, which primarily consisted of $148,000 for the repurchase of common stock within the currently authorized stock repurchase program and $39,000 paid for shares withheld for the payment of employee income taxes upon the vesting of restricted share awards, offset by $68,000 of proceeds from the exercise of stock options and the issuance of shares under the Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

 

During the second quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the Company to repurchase up to $2,000,000 worth of its outstanding shares in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, from time to time, through July 31, 2012. In the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Board increased this authorization to $3,000,000 available to be purchased within the same period. At July 31, 2011, $2,852,000 remains available within the current repurchase authorization.

 

The Company believes that its liquidity and capital resource needs for fiscal 2011 and the following next twelve months will be met through its current cash, cash equivalents and investments, as well as cash flows resulting from operations. The Company may also use some of its cash and capital resources in the acquisition of new businesses, technologies or products that complement its existing products. Specifically, from time to time, the Company engages in discussions with other companies concerning the development or acquisition of new or complementary products.

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

The discussion above contains forward-looking statements about Angeion’s future financial results and business prospects that by their nature involve substantial risks and uncertainties. You can identify these statements by the use of words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “target,” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance or business plans or prospects. Our actual results may differ materially depending on a variety of factors including: (1) national and worldwide economic and capital market conditions; (2) continuing cost-containment efforts in our hospital, clinic, and office market; (3) any changes in the patterns of medical reimbursement that may result from national healthcare reform; (4) our ability to successfully operate our business, including successfully converting our increasing research and development expenditures into new and improved cardiorespiratory diagnostic products and services and selling these products and services under the MedGraphics and New Leaf brand names into existing and new markets; (5) our ability to complete our software development initiatives and migrate our MedGraphics and New Leaf platforms to a next generation technology; (6) our ability to maintain our cost structure at a level that is appropriate to our near-to mid-term revenue expectations and that will enable us to increase revenues and profitability as opportunities develop; (7) our ability to achieve constant margins for our products and consistent and predictable operating expenses in light of variable revenues from our clinical research customers; (8) our ability to expand our international revenue through our distribution partners and our Milan, Italy representative branch office; (9) our ability to successfully defend ourselves from product liability claims related to our cardiorespiratory diagnostic products and claims associated with our prior cardiac stimulation products; (10) our ability to defend our existing intellectual property and obtain protection for intellectual property we develop in the future; (11) our ability to develop and maintain an effective system of internal controls and procedures and disclosure controls and procedures; (12) our dependence on third-party vendors; and (13) the ability of new members of our senior management to make a successful transition into their new roles and for all members of senior management to ultimately develop and implement a strategic plan. Additional information with respect to the risks and uncertainties faced by the Company may be found in, and the above discussion is qualified in its entirety by, the other risk factors that are described from time to time in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission reports, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2010.

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Management, with the participation of the Company’s interim chief executive officer, Gregg O. Lehman, and chief financial officer, Robert M. Wolf, has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as of the end of the period covered by this report. Management has concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC and that the disclosure controls are also effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s Exchange Act reports is accumulated and communicated to management, including the chief executive officer and principal accounting officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls

 

There have been no changes in internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the third fiscal quarter of 2011 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the registrant’s internal control over financial reporting.
