AURA SYSTEMS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
NOTE 1 - ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
 
Accounting principles
 
 
In the opinion of management, the accompanying balance sheets and related interim statements of income and comprehensive income, and cash flows include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, necessary for their fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. The information included in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with information included in the Company’s 2012 Form 10-K filed on May 29, 2012 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
 
Estimates
 
 
The preparation of financial statements 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 the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
 
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
 
In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-11, Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities (“ASU 2011-11”), to improve reporting and transparency of offsetting (netting) assets and liabilities and the related affects on the financial statements. ASU 2011-11 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after January 1, 2013. All disclosures provided by those amendments are required to be provided retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. We are currently evaluating the impact of this new ASU.
 
On June 16, 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” This ASU eliminates the current option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in equity. An entity can elect to present items of net income and other comprehensive income in one continuous statement or in two separate, but consecutive, statements. ASU No. 2011-05 also requires reclassifications of items out of accumulated other comprehensive income to net income to be measured and presented by income statement line item in both the statement where net income is presented and the statement where other comprehensive income is presented. However, on December 23, 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-12, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05” to defer this new requirement. There was no material impact on our financial statements upon adoption.
 
Reclassifications
 

 
Certain reclassifications have been made to the comparative financial statements to conform to the current period presentation.
 
 
NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  During the nine months ended November 30, 2012 and November 30, 2011, the Company incurred losses of $8,582,274 and $11,099,713, respectively and had negative cash flows from operating activities of $4,141,339 and $5,991,578, respectively.

If the Company is unable to generate profits and is unable to continue to obtain financing for its working capital requirements, it may have to curtail its business sharply or cease business altogether.
 
Substantial additional capital resources will be required to fund continuing expenditures related to our research, development, manufacturing and business development activities.  The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to retain its current financing, to obtain additional financing, and ultimately to attain profitability.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that could result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

During the next twelve months we intend to continue to expand our AuraGen/Viper business both domestically and internationally. There are four major components necessary to execute a significantly expanding business; (i) augmentation of management and staff, (ii) purchase orders, (iii) facilities and equipment, and (iv) working capital.  We plan to add senior quality assurance and quality control staff as well as a number of mechanical and electrical engineers, a number of technicians, and a number of test engineers. We had planned to take these steps in the current fiscal year, but a lack of resources prevented us from doing so. We anticipate being able to fund these additions in the upcoming fiscal year.

CONVERTIBLE DEBT
 
On September 23, 2011, Aura Systems, Inc. entered into  purchase agreements to sell convertible notes with a total principal value of $3,675,000 and warrants to purchase shares of common stock.  The notes have a 1.5 year maturity date and are convertible into shares of common stock at the initial conversion price of $0.75 per share.  The warrants entitle the investors to acquire 4,900,000 and 490,000 shares and have an initial exercise price of $1 and $0.75 per share, respectively, and have a 5 year term. The proceeds of Convertible note were assigned between warrants and convertible note per ASC 470-20. The company recorded $175,000 as a discount (prepaid interest), $1,006,482 as capitalized financing cost and a discount of $1,790,482 on shares to be issued upon conversion of the note into equity. This discount (prepaid interest), capitalized finance cost and discount will be amortized over the life of the note


CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTES

At November 30, 2012 and February 29, 2012, the three other convertible promissory note payable amounted to $1,425,522 and Nil, respectively, net of discounts of $424,477 and Nil, respectively. The convertible notes (the “Notes”) bear interest at 7% per annum, and are convertible into common stock of the Company at $0.76 per share (as well as variable conversion rates as described below). The notes are due on August 10, 2017, October 2, 2017, and January 4, 2013 and are unsecured.


7% Convertible Promissory Notes:

On August 10, 2012 the Company entered into an agreement with the individual (the “holder”) for the sale of $1,000,000 of unsecured Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) to the holder. The Convertible Promissory Note balance together with all accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on August 10, 2017 and the annual interest rate is 7% per annum and is due to be repaid 5 years from the closing date.  The Note holder will receive interest on the unpaid principal amount payable monthly in arrears on the tenth day of each calendar month commencing September 10, 2012. Interest shall be computed on the actual number of days elapsed over a 360-day year. The Holder has the right from and after the Date of Issuance, and until any time until the Convertible promissory note is fully paid, to convert any outstanding and unpaid principal portion of the Convertible promissory note into shares of Common.

On October 2, 2012 the Company entered into an agreement with the individual (the “holder”) for the sale of $500,000 of unsecured Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) to the holder. The Convertible Promissory Note balance together with all accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on October 2, 2017 and the annual interest rate is 7% per annum and is due to be repaid 5 years from the closing date.  The Note holder will receive interest on the unpaid principal amount payable monthly in arrears on the second day of each calendar month commencing November 2, 2012. Interest shall be computed on the actual number of days elapsed over a 360-day year. The Holder has the right from and after the Date of Issuance, and until any time until the Convertible promissory note is fully paid, to convert any outstanding and unpaid principal portion of the Convertible promissory note into shares of Common.

On November 2, 2012 the Company entered into an agreement with the individual (the “holder”) for the sale of $350,000 of unsecured Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) to the holder. The Convertible Promissory Note balance together with all accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on January 4, 2013 and the annual interest rate is 7% per annum and is due to be repaid 2 months from the closing date.  The Note holder will receive interest on the unpaid principal amount payable monthly in arrears on the second day of each calendar month commencing December 2, 2012. Interest shall be computed on the actual number of days elapsed over a 360-day year. The Holder has the right from and after the Date of Issuance, and until any time until the Convertible promissory note is fully paid, to convert any outstanding and unpaid principal portion of the Convertible promissory note into shares of Common.

The Convertible Notes have a variable conversion price. If, at any time while the Notes remain outstanding, the Company issues or sells any Convertible Securities and the lowest price per share for which one share of Common Stock is issuable upon the conversion, exercise or exchange thereof is less than the then Conversion Price of the Notes (such lower price, the "Dilutive Price"), then the Conversion Price of these Notes shall be adjusted to reflect such Dilutive Price. Such adjustment shall be made upon the issuance or sale of the Convertible Security bearing a dilutive price. In the event of default for the Notes, the amount of principal and interest not paid when due becomes immediately due and payable.

The Company has valued the derivative liability for the convertible promissory note using the Black – Scholes model as of August 10, 2012 and November 30, 2012.
 
As of November 30, 2012 the fair value of the conversion features subject to derivative accounting was $424,477. The value of the conversion feature as of November 30, 2012 was determined using the Black-Scholes method based on the following assumptions: (1) risk free interest rate of 0.59%; (2) dividend yield of 0%; (3) volatility factor of the expected market price of our common stock of 71.29%; and (4) expected life of the conversion features of 5 years.

Our effective tax rates were approximately 0.0% for the nine months ended November 30, 2012 and 2011. Our effective tax rate was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to the fact that we record a full valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets, which is primarily comprised of net operating losses.

·  
Our ability to generate positive cash flow from operations;
·  
Our ability to obtain additional financing to fund our operations;
·  
Our business development and  operating development; and

We do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise except to the extent required by law. You should interpret all subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf as being expressly qualified by the cautionary statements in this Report. As a result, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
 
 
Overview
 
 
We design, assemble and sell the AuraGen®, our patented mobile power generator that uses a prime mover such as the engine of a vehicle to generate power. The AuraGen® delivers on-location, plug-in electricity for any end use, including industrial, commercial, recreational and military applications. We began commercializing the AuraGen® in late 1999 and sold our first commercial units in late 2000 and early 2001. To date, AuraGen® units have been sold in numerous industries, including recreational, utilities, telecommunications, emergency/rescue, public works, catering, oil and gas, transportation, government and the military.
 
 
We have not yet achieved a level of AuraGen® sales sufficient to generate positive cash flow. Accordingly, we have depended on repeated infusions of cash in order to maintain liquidity as we have sought to develop sales.
 
 
Our financial statements included in this report have been prepared on the assumption that we will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. However, as a result of our losses from operations, there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our independent auditors, in their report on the Company’s financial statements for the year ended February 29, 2012 expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.   The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amount and classification of liabilities that may result from our possible inability to continue as a going concern.
 
 
 
14

 
Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the successful achievement of profitable operations, and the ability to generate sufficient cash from operations and obtain financing resources to meet our obligations.  There is no assurance that such efforts will be successful.
 
 
Our current level of sales reflects our efforts to introduce a new product into the marketplace. Until recently, many purchases of the product were for evaluation purposes. Recently we started to receive repeat orders for larger quantities as different organizations are integrating our products into their vehicles. We seek to achieve profitable operations by obtaining market acceptance of the AuraGen® as a competitive - if not superior - product providing mobile power anywhere anytime. There can be no assurance that this success will be achieved.
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and disclosures on the date of the financial statements. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including, but not limited to, those related to revenue recognition. We use authoritative pronouncements, historical experience and other assumptions as the basis for making judgments. Actual results could differ from those estimates. We believe that the following critical accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements.
 


Revenue Recognition
 
We are required to make judgments based on historical experience and future expectations, as to the reliability of shipments made to our customers. These judgments are required to assess the propriety of the recognition of revenue based on Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") No. 101, "Revenue Recognition," and related guidance. Because sales are currently in limited volume and many sales are for evaluative purposes, we have not booked a general reserve for returns. We will consider an appropriate level of reserve for product returns when our sales increase to commercial levels.
 
Inventory Valuation and Classification
 
Inventories consist primarily of components and completed units for our AuraGen® product. Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or market. Provision is made for estimated amounts of current inventories that will ultimately become obsolete due to changes in the product itself or vehicle engine types that go out of production. We are holding inventories in excess of what we expect to sell in the next fiscal year. The net inventories which are not expected to be realized within a 12-month period based on current sales forecasts have been reclassified as long term. Management believes that existing inventories can, and will, be sold in the future without significant costs to upgrade it to current models and that the valuation of the inventories, classified both as current and long-term assets, accurately reflects the realizable values of these assets. The AuraGen® product being sold currently is not technologically different from those in current use. Existing finished goods inventories can be upgraded to the current model with only a small amount of materials and manpower. We make these assessments based on the following factors: i) existing orders, ii) age of the inventory, iii) historical experience and iv) our expectations as to future sales. If expected sales volumes do not materialize, there would be a material impact on our financial statements.
 
Valuation of Long-Lived Assets
 
Long-lived assets, consisting primarily of property and equipment, and patents and trademarks, comprise a portion of our total assets.  Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying values August not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets is measured by a comparison of the carrying value of an asset to the future net cash flows expected to be generated by those assets. Net cash flows are estimated based on expectations as to the realize-ability of the asset. Factors that could trigger a review include significant changes in the manner of an asset’s use or our overall strategy.
 
 
 
15

 
Specific asset categories are treated as follows:
 
 
Accounts Receivable: We record an allowance for doubtful accounts based on our expectation of collect-ability of current and past due accounts receivable.
 
 
Property, Plant and Equipment: We depreciate our property and equipment over various useful lives ranging from five to ten years. Adjustments are made as warranted when market conditions and values indicate that the current value of an asset is less than its net book value.
 
 
When we determine that an asset is impaired, we measure any such impairment by discounting an asset’s realizable value to the present using a discount rate appropriate to the perceived risk in realizing such value. When we determine that an impaired asset has no foreseeable realizable value, we write such asset down to zero.
 
 
Results of Operations
 
 
Nine months ended November 30, 2012 compared to nine months ended November 30, 2011
 
 
Net revenues for the nine months ended November 30, 2012 (the “Nine months FY2013”) increased $192,541 to $2,286,496 from $2,093,955 in the nine months ended November 30, 2011 (the “Nine months FY2012”), an increase of 9%. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in sales to an existing customer and sales to a new customer, partially offset by reductions in sales to other existing customers.  Our customers typically order on an as needed basis and therefore our sales can fluctuate substantially between periods based on our customers’ needs at a given time.
 
 
Cost of goods increased $106,726 (11%) to $1,104,674 in the Nine months FY2013 from $997,948 in the Nine months FY2012. The increase in cost of goods is a result of the increase in sales for the period.
 
 
Engineering, research and development expenses increased $15,543 (2%) to $1,008,954 in the Nine months FY2013 from $993,411 in the Nine months FY 2012.  In the past, we have reduced our expenditures in this area due (i)our financial situation, and (ii) due to reduced efforts in developments of new configurations.  With major new contracts and customers we now expect to increase our expenditures in this area in the near future.
 
 
Selling, general and administrative expense decreased $2,731,245 (25%) to $8,024,082 in the Nine months FY2013 from $10,755,327 in the Nine months FY2012. The decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in non-cash charges of approximately $3,545,000 for stock option expense, partially offset by an increase in marketing expenses of approximately $250,000 and an increase in legal expenses of approximately $845,000. The increase in legal expenses is associated with the settlement of a lawsuit against our former bankruptcy attorneys in the amount of $2,095,000. Of this amount approximately $1,155,000 in legal expenses were incurred. We also incurred approximately $140,000 of expenses associated with the moving of our production operations to our headquarters building.
 
 
 Net interest expense in the Nine months FY2013 increased $1,657,868 (141%) to $2,834,226 from $1,176,358 in the Nine months FY2013 as a result of our increased debt levels, primarily our 10% demand note payable to a member of our Board of Directors, an increase in the non-cash amortization of the debt discount, warrant expense and beneficial conversion feature of $1,548,241 on the financing completed in the third quarter of FY2012 and the non-cash amortization of $35,733 of the debt discount on the convertible note entered into in the second and third quarters of Fiscal 2013.
 
 
Other income for the Nine months FY2013 increased $2,088,130 to $2,103,166 from $15,036 in the Nine months FY2013 as a result of the legal settlement we entered into with our former bankruptcy attorneys in the amount of $2,095,000.
 
 
 
16

 
Our net loss for the Nine months FY2013 decreased $2,517,439 to $8,582,274 from $11,099,713 in the Nine months FY2012, primarily as a result of the decrease in stock option expense of $3,545,000, partially offset by the  increase in the interest expense noted above of $1,657,868, and the recording of $2,095,000 in income from the settlement of a legal dispute noted above, partially offset by the additional legal expenses of $845,000. This net loss included $1,806,354 in amortization expenses described above.
 
 
Three months ended November 30, 2012 compared to three months ended November 30, 2011
 
 
Net revenues for the three months ended November 30, 2012 (the “Third Quarter FY2013”) increased $687,839 to $1,215,024 from $527,185 in the three months ended November 30, 2011 (the “Third Quarter FY2012”), an increase of 130%. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in sales to an existing customer and sales to a new customer.
 
 
Cost of goods increased $302,846 (89%) to $644,648 in the Third Quarter FY2013 from $341,802 in the Third Quarter FY2012. The increase in cost of goods is primarily a result of the increase in sales.
 
 
Engineering, research and development expenses decreased $25,369 (8%) to $312,262 in the Third Quarter FY2013 from $337,631 in the Third Quarter FY 2012. These expenses have decreased substantially in prior periods, but are expected to increase in future periods.
 
 
Selling, general and administrative expense increased $600,935 (21%) to $3,496,624 in the Third Quarter FY2013 from $2,895,689 in the Third Quarter FY2012. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in legal expenses of $845,000 associated with a legal settlement, expenses of approximately $140,000 incurred in moving our production facilities to our headquarters building, partially offset by a decrease in consulting expenses of approximately $430,000.
 
 
Net interest expense in the Third Quarter FY2013 increased $336,759 (50%) to $1,009,131 from $672,372 in the Third Quarter FY2012 as a result of our increased debt levels, primarily our 10% demand note payable to a member of our Board of Directors and the amortization of the debt discount, warrant expense and beneficial conversion feature of $590,207 on the financing completed in the third quarter of FY2012 and the non-cash amortization of $20,122 of the debt discount on the convertible notes entered into in the  second and third quarters of Fiscal 2013.
 
 
Other income for the Third Quarter FY2013 increased $2,094,915 to $2,095,000 from $85 in the Third Quarter FY2013 as a result of the legal settlement we entered into with our former bankruptcy attorneys in the amount of $2,095,000
 
 
Our net loss for the Third Quarter FY2013 decreased $1,119,998 to $2,152,641 from $3,272,639 in the Third Quarter FY2012, primarily as a result of the legal settlement noted above, offset by the increase in legal expenses, along with the increase in sales and the resultant increase in gross profit, expenses associated with moving our facilities and the reduction in consulting expenses.
 
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
 
We had cash of approximately $39,000 and $6,000 as of November 30, 2012, and February 29, 2012, respectively.  We had a working capital deficit at November 30, 2012, and February 29, 2012 of $19,225,743 and $13,304,400, respectively. The working capital deficit includes notes payable and accrued interest to related parties of $17,017,778 and $12,562,743 as of November 30 and February 29, 2012, respectively.  As of November 30, 2012, we had accounts receivable, net of allowance for doubtful accounts, of $740,627 compared to $794,704 as of February 29, 2012. 
 
 
Net cash used in operations for the nine months ended November 30, 2012, was $4,141,339, a decrease of $1,850,239 from the comparable period in the prior fiscal year. Net cash provided by financing activities during the nine months ended November 30, 2012, was $4,174,210, resulting from net proceeds from notes payable of $4,022,210 and proceeds from the issuance of common stock of $152,000.

There were no acquisitions of property and equipment in the nine months FY 2013 or the nine months FY 2012.
 
 
Accrued expenses as of November 30, 2012 increased $453,183 to $1,473,142 from $1,019,959 as of February 29, 2012. Approximately $910,000 of accrued expenses is salaries accrued but unpaid to certain employees and ex-employees due to a lack of resources, and approximately $412,000 is accrued but unused vacation time earned by employees.
 
 
Net proceeds from the issuance of debt totaled $4,022,210 in the nine months FY 2013, compared with $4,579,500 in the nine months FY 2012. Net debt proceeds of $3,494,960 in the nine months of FY2013 were from a member of our Board of Directors, and debt repayments totaling $2,143,750 were made on the $3.5 million financing completed in the third quarter fiscal 2012. As of December 31, 2012, the total amount owing our board member is $13,919,960 plus accrued interest of approximately $3,225,000. The notes are subordinated to the Convertible Debt we entered into on September 23, 2011. If the Board member were to demand repayment, we do not currently have the resources to make the payment.
 
 
The Company had a deficit of $18,788,422 in shareholders’ equity as of November 30, 2012, compared to $11,599,048 as of February 29, 2012. The deficit includes approximately $12.5 million of non-cash expenses resulting from charges for stock option and warrant expense for fiscal years 2008 through the first nine months of fiscal year 2013.
 
Since 2002 substantially all of our revenues from operations have been derived from sales of the AuraGen®. The cash flow generated from our operations to date has not been sufficient to fund our working capital needs, and we cannot predict when operating cash flow will be sufficient to fund working capital needs.
 
In the past, in order to maintain liquidity we have relied upon external sources of financing, principally equity financing and private indebtedness. We have no bank line of credit and require additional debt or equity financing to fund ongoing operations. The issuance of additional shares of equity in connection with any such financing could dilute the interests of our existing stockholders, and such dilution could be substantial. If we cannot raise needed funds, we would also be forced to make further substantial reductions in our operating expenses, which could adversely affect our ability to implement our current business plan and ultimately our viability as a company.
 
 
Capital Transactions
 
 
During the quarter ended November 30, 2012, we issued 65,789 shares of Common Stock for services rendered valued at $50,000 and 134,807 shares upon conversion of $102,454 of notes payable and accrued interest.
 
 
During the quarter ended November 30, 2011, we issued 310,000 shares of Common Stock for cash consideration of $232,500, with 310,000 warrants attached at an exercise price of $1.00-$1.25. We also issued 725,000 shares of Common Stock for services to be rendered in the amount of $510,000, and 426,666 shares of Common Stock as finders fees with 490,000 warrants attached at an exercise price of $0.75.
 
 
Inventories
 
 
Inventories consist primarily of components and completed units of the Company’s AuraGen® product.
 
 
Early in our AuraGen® program, we determined it was most cost-effective to outsource production of components and subassemblies to volume-oriented manufacturers, rather than produce these parts in house. As a result of this decision, and based on then anticipated sales, we purchased, prior to fiscal 2001, a substantial inventory of components at volume prices. Since sales did not meet such expectations, we have been selling product from this inventory for several years. Management has analyzed its inventories based on its current business plan, current potential orders for future delivery, and pending proposals with prospective customers and has determined that we do not expect to realize all of its inventories within the next year. The net inventories as of November 30 and February 29, 2012, which are not expected to be realized within a 12-month period have been reclassified as long term.

Most of our inventory consists of a variety of (i) metallic, mechanical components, and (ii) electrical components including metallic chassis to hold the assembled electrical systems.  The vast majority of mechanical components are not aged and most of the electrical components are also not aged.  The components that are aged are related to the prime mover/Generator interface that may not be in demand any longer.
 
 
Currently, we offer and ship three different basic models of systems; (i) a 5 kW based systems, (ii) an 8.5 kW based system and (iii) a 16 kW based systems (two 8.5 kW systems configured in tandem back-to-back).  Each of these systems can be configured with different options such as 110 VAC only, 220 VAC only, 24 VDC only, 12 VDC only and AC/DC combinations of the same or different voltages.  In addition, the system can be configured with single phase, split phase or three-phase output.
 
 
A number of the mechanical components are common to all three of the above configurations, while others are very specific.  For example, the stators and rotors for the 5 kW systems are different from the 8.5 kW systems, but the housings are the same.  Similarly, the electrical components consist of some parts that are geared for a specific configuration while others are generic and can be used for all of the configurations.   The electrical chassis are also interchangeable between the 5 kW and 8.5 kW configurations. Due to the nature and mix of the product being sold, frequently, the 5 kW electrical systems are upgraded to 8.5 kW systems by replacing some components.
 
 
From the above description one can understand that the inventory consists of numerous components and subassemblies but not finished systems; therefore each system that is sold and shipped to a customer is built from some components that are in inventory and others that need to be purchased to be able to configure the required system.
 
 
Currently, most of the product being shipped consists of 8.5 kW systems.  These systems are built by using existing inventory subassemblies and parts, including some that can be used for both 5 kW and 8.5 kW systems, and additional parts that are purchased to provide the required configuration.  Typically such systems are built using approximately 20 to 25 percent of existing inventory and approximately 75% of additional parts that are purchased.
 
 
However, most of the systems currently being sold to the Korean military consist of 5 kW systems.  They have been purchasing approximately 100 systems per year and have indicated to us that they will continue to do so for the next five years.  To date we have shipped over 500 such systems (in this case 100% of the rotors and stators are used from existing inventory and over 50% of the electrical parts are also from inventory).
 
 
In addition to the above, we constantly see demand for different and unique configurations that require the purchase of additional parts.
