NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

December 31, 2012

 

1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Lantronix, Inc. (referred to in these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as “Lantronix,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 30, 2012. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all normal recurring accruals and adjustments that in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of Lantronix at December 31, 2012, and the consolidated results of our operations for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012 and the consolidated cash flows for the six months ended December 31, 2012. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. It should be understood that accounting measurements at interim dates inherently involve greater reliance on estimates than at year-end. The results of operations for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year or any future interim periods.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance regarding the presentation of comprehensive income. The new standard requires the presentation of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The updated guidance is effective on a retrospective basis for financial statements issued for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2011. We adopted this guidance effective July 1, 2012. Such adoption did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

Computation of Net Loss per Share

 

Basic and diluted net loss per share is calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the applicable period.

 

The following table presents the computation of net loss per share:

 

   Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended 
   December 31,   December 31, 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
  (In thousands, except per share data) 
Numerator:                
Net loss  $(412)  $(1,377)  $(842)  $(2,821)
Denominator:                    
Weighted-average shares   14,578    10,631    14,568    10,621 
Less: Unvested common shares       (50)       (50)
Weighted-average common shares outstanding (basic and diluted)   14,578    10,581    14,568    10,571 
                     
Net loss per share (basic and diluted)  $(0.03)  $(0.13)  $(0.06)  $(0.27)

  

 

The following table presents the common stock equivalents excluded from the diluted net loss per share calculation, because they were anti-dilutive as of such dates. These excluded common stock equivalents could be dilutive in the future.

   (In thousands) 
Non-cash acquisition of property and equipment  $68   $91 

 

3. Warranty Reserve

 

Upon shipment to our customers, we provide for the estimated cost to repair or replace products to be returned under warranty. Our products typically carry a one- to two-year warranty. Beginning in December 2011, we began offering a 5-year warranty for some of our new products. Our warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates, use of materials and service delivery costs, which may differ from our estimates. As a result, additional warranty reserves could be required, which could reduce gross margins. Additionally, we sell extended warranty services, which extend the warranty period for an additional one to three years, depending upon the product. Warranty net revenue is deferred and recognized ratably over the warranty service period.

 

The following table presents details of our warranty reserve:

 

   Six Months Ended   Year Ended 
   December 31,   June 30, 
   2012   2012 
   (In thousands) 
Beginning balance  $232   $268 
Charged to cost of revenues   52    84 
Usage   (62)   (120)
Ending balance  $222   $232 

  

4. Bank Line of Credit and Debt

 

We have a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan and Security Agreement”) with Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) dated May 23, 2006 which is comprised of a $4.0 million revolving line of credit and a $2.0 million term loan (the “Term Loan”). We also have (i) a Loan and Security Agreement/(Ex-Im Program) (the “Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement”) dated May 23, 2006 with terms that generally parallel to the Loan and Security Agreement and (ii) an Export-Import Bank of the United States (the “Ex-Im Bank”) Working Capital Guarantee Program Borrower Agreement (the “Guarantee Agreement”).On October 16, 2012, we entered into amendments to the SVB loan Agreements, effective September 30, 2012, and also re-executed the Guarantee Agreement as of October 16, 2012 (the “2012 Amendments”). We collectively refer to the Loan and Security Agreement and the Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement herein, as each have been amended time to time, as the “Amended SVB Loan Agreements.” 

 

The Loan and Security Agreement and the Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement were established in favor of SVB for the purpose of providing us with working capital to finance the manufacture, production or purchase and subsequent export of our finished goods or services and a means to use our assets related to our domestic and foreign receivables to secure our borrowings. The Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement and the Guaranty Agreement were established primarily as a means to use our assets related to our foreign receivables to secure our borrowings. SVB and the Ex-Im Bank required that we execute the Guarantee Agreement as a condition precedent to SVB establishing the Loan and Security Agreement and Ex-Im Bank providing the Guarantee Agreement.

 

The Amended SVB Loan Agreements provide for a revolving line of credit that in the aggregate may not exceed $4.0 million and the Term Loan.

 

The extended maturity date for the revolving line of credit under the Amended SVB Loan Agreements is September 30, 2014. The 2012 Amendments also reduced the interest rate to a rate per annum equal to the greater of the prime rate plus 0.75% or 4.0%, provided that we maintain a monthly quick ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 or greater. The quick ratio measures our ability to use our cash and cash equivalents maintained at SVB (or “quick assets”) to extinguish or retire our current liabilities immediately. If this ratio is not met, the interest rate will become the greater of the prime rate plus 1.25% or 4.0%. Additionally, the interest rate on the Term Loan was reduced to the prime rate plus 1.50%, payable monthly. The 2012 Amendments required the payment of a fee of $5,000 for the Amended Loan and Security Agreement and $10,000 for the Amended Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement, upon execution, respectively. We also are required to pay an additional $5,000 and $10,000 fee for the Amended Loan and Security Agreement and Amended Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement, respectively, on September 30, 2013.

Pursuant to the Amended SVB Loan Agreements, the available borrowing capacity under the revolving line of credit is limited to the lesser of (i) $4.0 million or (ii) the current portion of the trade receivable balance, less 50% of the balance of deferred revenue, less outstanding borrowings on the revolving line of credit.

 

As of December 31, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding on the revolving line of credit under the Amended SVB Loan Agreements and the Term Loan is being repaid over 36 equal monthly installments with a maturity date of September 30, 2013.

 

The Amended SVB Loan Agreements adjust our Minimum Tangible Net Worth (“Minimum TNW”) covenant beginning as of September 30, 2012 from approximately $7.5 million to $6.0 million. This amount will adjust upward, as further defined in the agreements, to the extent we raise additional equity or debt financing or achieve net income in future quarters. Our Actual Tangible Net Worth (“Actual TNW”) is calculated as total shareholders’ equity, less goodwill. If we continue to incur net losses, we may have difficulty satisfying the Minimum TNW financial covenant in the future.

 

The following table sets forth the Minimum TNW compared to our Actual TNW:

 

   December 31, 2012 
   (In thousands) 
Minimum TNW  $6,000 
Actual TNW  $12,013 

  

The following table presents the balance outstanding on the Term Loan, the available borrowing capacity on the revolving line of credit and outstanding letters of credit, which were used as security deposits:

 

   December 31,   June 30, 
   2012   2012 
   (in thousands) 
Term Loan  $500   $834 
Available borrowing capacity under the Revolving Line  $2,489   $1,987 
Outstanding letters of credit  $113   $113 

 

5. Stockholders’ Equity

 

Share-Based Plans and Compensation Expense

 

Our share-based plans permit the granting of stock options (both incentive and nonqualified stock options), stock appreciation rights, non-vested stock, restricted stock units, and performance shares to certain employees, directors and consultants. As of December 31, 2012, no stock appreciation rights, non-vested stock, restricted stock units, or performance shares were outstanding.

  

The following table presents a summary of share-based compensation expense by functional line item:

 

   Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended 
   December 31,   December 31, 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
   (In thousands) 
Cost of revenues  $10   $8   $21   $21 
Selling, general and administrative   141    113    287    194 
Research and development   55    71    129    137 
Total share-based compensation expense  $206   $192   $437   $352 

   

As of December 31, 2012, there was approximately $1.7 million of unrecognized share-based compensation expense. This expense is currently expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 2.8 years. If there are any modifications or cancellations of the underlying unvested share-based awards, we may be required to accelerate, increase or cancel remaining unearned share-based compensation expense. Future share-based compensation expense and unearned share-based compensation will increase to the extent that we grant additional share-based awards.

Balance of non-vested shares at December 31, 2012      $ 

 

6. Income Taxes

 

We utilize the liability method of accounting for income taxes. The following table presents our effective tax rates based upon the income tax provision for the periods shown:

 

   Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended 
   December 31,   December 31, 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
Effective tax rate   5%    1%    4%    1% 

The difference between our effective tax rates in the periods presented above and the federal statutory rate is primarily due to a tax benefit from our domestic losses being recorded with a fully reserved allowance, as well as the effect of foreign earnings taxed at rates differing from the federal statutory rate.

 

We record net deferred tax assets to the extent that we believe these assets will more likely than not be realized. As a result of our cumulative losses and uncertainty of generating future taxable income, we have provided a full valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012.

 

7. Litigation and Contingencies

 

From time to time, we are subject to legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of business. We are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that will have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial position, operating results or cash flows.

Comparison of the Three and Six Months Ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

 

Net Revenue by Product Line

 

The following table presents fiscal quarter net revenue by product line:

 

  Three Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Embedded device enablement  $5,546    45.6%   $4,994    47.8%   $552    11.1% 
External device enablement   3,480    28.6%    3,349    32.0%    131    3.9% 
Device management   3,136    25.8%    2,109    20.2%    1,027    48.7% 
Net revenue  $12,162    100.0%   $10,452    100.0%   $1,710    16.4% 

    

 

The increase in net revenue from our embedded device enablement product line was primarily due to an increase in unit sales of our xPort and ASIC product families, as well as one of our newer products, PremierWave EN. 

 

The increase in net revenue from our external device enablement product line was primarily due to an increase in unit sales of our EDS and XPRESS product families. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in unit sales of our UDS product family.

 

The increase in net revenue from our device management product line was largely due to an increase in unit sales of our new xPrintServer product families, for which there were no comparable sales in the prior year period. The increasing demand for wireless printing capabilities directly from iOS devices such as iPads® and iPhones® is driving revenues for our xPrintServer product families. The increase in net revenue is also attributable to increased unit sales from our Secure Lantronix Console Server (“SLC”) product family.

 

The following table presents fiscal year-to-date net revenue by product line:

 

  Six Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Embedded enablement  $11,334    48.5%   $10,471    48.4%   $863    8.2% 
External enablement   6,755    28.9%    6,635    30.7%    120    1.8% 
Device management   5,275    22.6%    4,530    20.9%    745    16.4% 
Net revenue  $23,364    100.0%   $21,636    100.0%   $1,728    8.0% 

The increase in net revenue from our embedded device enablement product line was primarily due to an increase in unit sales of our xPort, ASIC and PremierWave EN products. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in unit sales of our Wiport product family.

 

The increase in net revenue from our external device enablement products was primarily due to an increase in unit sales of our EDS product family. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in unit sales of our UDS product family.

 

The increase in net revenue from our device management product line was largely due to sales of our new xPrintServer product families in the current period. The overall increase in net revenue for this product line was partially offset by decreases in unit sales of our Secure Lantronix Spider (“SLS”) and SLC product families.

 

In the tables above, we have included net revenue from our non-core products, which currently represents less than 2% of net revenue, in the device management product line.

Net Revenue by Geographic Region

 

The following table presents fiscal quarter net revenue by geographic region:

 

  Three Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Americas  $6,852    56.3%   $5,847    55.9%   $1,005    17.2% 
EMEA   3,575    29.4%    2,933    28.1%    642    21.9% 
Asia Pacific   1,735    14.3%    1,672    16.0%    63    3.8% 
Net revenue  $12,162    100.0%   $10,452    100.0%   $1,710    16.4% 

  

The increase in net revenue primarily reflects increased unit sales in the Americas and Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”) regions. These increases were largely driven by increased unit sales in our embedded device enablement and device management product lines within both regions, with unit sales of our xPrintServer product families and SLC family driving growth in the Americas and our xPort and xPrintServer families driving growth in EMEA.

 

The following table presents fiscal year-to-date net revenue by geographic region:

  Six Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Americas  $12,808    54.8%   $11,524    53.3%   $1,284    11.1% 
EMEA   6,652    28.5%    6,448    29.8%    204    3.2% 
Asia Pacific   3,904    16.7%    3,664    16.9%    240    6.6% 
Net revenue  $23,364    100.0%   $21,636    100.0%   $1,728    8.0% 

The increase in net revenue reflects increased unit sales in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. The increase in net revenue from the Americas was in large part due to an increase in unit sales within our device management product line, driven by sales of our xPrintServer families. To a lesser extent, the Americas also saw net increases in unit sales for both the embedded and external device enablement product lines. The increase in EMEA was driven by an increase within our embedded device enablement product line, partially offset by a decrease in the external device enablement product line. The increase in Asia Pacific was driven by an increase in embedded device enablement, with similar smaller increases in both our external device enablement and device management product lines.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit represents net revenue less cost of revenue. Cost of revenue consists primarily of the cost of raw material components, subcontract labor assembly from contract manufacturers, freight, establishing inventory reserves for excess and obsolete products or raw materials, warranty costs, royalties and manufacturing overhead, which includes personnel-related expenses, such as payroll, facilities expenses and share-based compensation.

 

The following table presents fiscal quarter gross profit:

 

  Three Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Gross profit  $6,032    49.6%   $5,041    48.2%   $991    19.7% 

   

Gross profit and gross margin increased overall as a result of the increase in our net revenues for the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter, as described above. The improvement in the current quarter gross margin was also aided significantly by the fact that in the prior year quarter we recorded a charge of just under $500,000 for estimates of excess and obsolete inventories as a result of reductions in sales forecasts for certain products. However, our gross margins in the current quarter, as compared to the prior year quarter, were negatively affected by the growth in sales of certain lower margin products within our embedded device enablement and device management product lines, along with increased freight and fulfillment costs.

 

The following table presents fiscal year-to-date gross profit:

 

  Six Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net  

 Change

 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Gross profit  $11,504    49.2%   $10,343    47.8%   $1,161    11.2% 

 

11
 

 

 

Gross profit and gross profit as a percent of net revenue (referred to as “gross margin”) increased overall as a result of the increase in our net revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the corresponding prior year period, as described above. The improvement in the current quarter gross margin was also aided significantly by the fact that in the prior year period we recorded a charge of just under $500,000 for estimates of excess and obsolete inventories as a result of reductions in sales forecasts for certain products. However, our gross margins in the current quarter, as compared to the prior year quarter, were negatively affected by the growth in sales of certain lower margin products within our embedded device enablement and device management product lines, along with increased freight and fulfillment costs.

 

Selling, General and Administrative

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses consist of personnel-related expenses, including salaries and commissions, share-based compensation, facility expenses, information technology, trade show expenses, advertising, and legal and accounting fees.

   

The following table presents fiscal quarter selling, general and administrative expenses:

 

  Three Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Personnel-related expenses  $2,646       $2,541       $105    4.1% 
Professional fees and outside services   387        648        (261)   (40.3%)
Advertising and marketing   787        413        374    90.6% 
Facilities   278        331        (53)   (16.0%)
Share-based compensation   141        113        28    24.8% 
Depreciation   110        117        (7)   (6.0%)
Bad debt expense   58        (6)       64    1066.7% 
Other   312        284        28    9.9% 
Selling, general and administrative  $4,719    38.8%   $4,441    42.5%   $278    6.3% 

     

 

The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to (i) an increase in advertising and marketing fees related primarily to marketing initiatives for our new products releases and (ii) an increase in bad debt expense due to the timing of our receivable collections. The above increases were partially offset by decreased professional fees and outside services fees primarily related to reductions in accounting and legal fees.

 

The following table presents fiscal year-to-date selling, general and administrative expenses:

 

  Six Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Personnel-related expenses  $5,098       $5,385       $(287)   (5.3%)
Professional fees & outside services   1,018        1,654        (636)   (38.5%)
Advertising and marketing   1,214        619        595    96.1% 
Facilities   539        669        (130)   (19.4%)
Share-based compensation   287        194        93    47.9% 
Depreciation   226        245        (19)   (7.8%)
Bad debt expense (recovery)   42        10        32    320.0% 
Other   563        629        (66)   (10.5%)
Selling, general and administrative  $8,987    38.5%   $9,405    43.5%   $(418)   (4.4%)

 

12
 

 

The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to (i) higher professional fees and outside services incurred in the first six months of fiscal 2012 related to the special investigation that was completed during the quarter ended September 30, 2011, as well as a reduction in accounting and legal fees associated with and the implementation of various cost-cutting programs and (ii) a decrease in personnel-related expenses as a result of a head count reduction directly related to the restructuring activities that occurred in November 2011, which were partially offset by merit increases during the current year. The above decreases were partially offset by increased advertising and marketing expenses during the current quarter related to various new marketing initiatives attributable to new product releases.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses consist of personnel-related expenses, including share-based compensation, as well as expenditures to third-party vendors for research and development activities.

 

The following table presents fiscal quarter research and development expenses:

 

  Three Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Personnel-related expenses  $1,114       $1,088       $26    2.4% 
Facilities   217        212        5    2.4% 
Professional fees and outside services   239        216        23    10.6% 
Share-based compensation   55        71        (16)   (22.5%)
Depreciation   3        7        (4)   (57.1%)
Other   37        52        (15)   (28.8%)
Research and development  $1,665    13.7%   $1,646    15.7%   $19    1.2% 

   

Research and development expenses remained relatively flat between the current quarter and prior year quarter. We saw an increase in certain professional and outside services fees primarily related to development and testing of new products.

 

The following table presents fiscal year-to-date research and development expenses:

  Six Months Ended December 31,         
     % of Net       % of Net   Change 
   2012   Revenue   2011   Revenue   $   % 
  (In thousands, except percentages) 
Personnel-related expenses  $2,126        $2,264        $(138)   (6.1%)
Facilities   452         425         27    6.4% 
Professional fees & outside services   484         410         74    18.0% 
Share-based compensation   129         137         (8)   (5.8%)
Depreciation   7         16         (9)   (56.3%)
Other   76         89         (13)   (14.6%)
Research and development  $3,274    14.0%   $3,341    15.4%   $(67)   (2.0%)

The decrease in research and development expenses during the six months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the corresponding prior year period was primarily due to a decrease in salaries as a result of a reduction in head count and related personnel expenses. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in professional fees and outside services primarily as a result of certain testing and development costs incurred related to new products.

 

Other Income (Expense), Net

 

Other income (expense), net is primarily comprised of foreign currency re-measurement and transaction adjustments related to our foreign subsidiaries whose functional currency is the U.S. dollar.

Provision for Income Taxes

 

The following table presents our effective tax rate based upon our income tax provision:

 

   Three Months Ended   Six Months Ended 
   December 31,   December 31, 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
Effective tax rate   5%    1%    4%    1% 

We utilize the liability method of accounting for income taxes. The difference between our effective tax rates and the federal statutory rate resulted primarily from a tax benefit from our domestic losses being recorded with a fully reserved allowance, as well as the effect of foreign earnings taxed at rates differing from the federal statutory rate.

 

We record net deferred tax assets to the extent that we believe these assets, will more likely, than not be realized. As a result of our cumulative losses and uncertainty of generating future taxable income, we have provided a full valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012.

  

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The following table presents information about our working capital and cash:

 

   December 31,
2012
   June 30,
2012
 
  (In thousands) 
Working capital  $11,524   $11,927 
Cash and cash equivalents  $8,452   $11,374 

 

Our sources of cash and liquidity include our existing cash and cash equivalents, amounts under our credit facilities and cash from operations. We believe that these sources are sufficient to fund the current requirements of working capital, capital expenditures and other financial commitments for at least the next 12 months. The primary drivers affecting cash and liquidity are net revenue, working capital requirements, capital expenditures and principal payments on our debt.

 

Management defines cash and cash equivalents as highly liquid deposits with original maturities of 90 days or less when purchased. We maintain cash and cash equivalents balances at certain financial institutions in excess of amounts insured by federal agencies. Management does not believe this concentration subjects us to any unusual financial risk beyond the normal risk associated with commercial banking relationships. We frequently monitor the third-party depository institutions that hold our cash and cash equivalents. Our emphasis is primarily on safety of principal and secondarily on maximizing yield on those funds.

 

Our future working capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the timing and amount of our net revenue, research and development expenses, and expenses associated with any strategic partnerships or acquisitions and infrastructure investments.

 

We incurred a net loss of $0.4 million and $1.4 million for the fiscal quarters ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. We expect our available cash generated from operations, together with existing sources of cash, cash raised from the recent sales of our common stock in April and May of 2012 and, if required, from our credit agreement will be sufficient to fund our long-term and short-term capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements. We may be required, from time-to-time, to raise capital through either equity or debt arrangements or a hybrid thereof to (i) develop or enhance our products, (ii) take advantage of future opportunities, (iii) respond to competition or (iv) continue to operate our business. We cannot provide assurance that we will be able to raise capital, including, new equity, debt arrangements or a hybrid thereof or that required capital would be available on acceptable terms, if at all, or that any financing activity would not be dilutive to our current stockholders in the future.

 

Loan Agreement

 

We have a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan and Security Agreement”) with Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”) dated May 23, 2006, which is comprised of a $4.0 million revolving line of credit and a $2.0 million term loan (the “Term Loan”). We also have (i) a Loan and Security Agreement/(Ex-Im Program) (the “Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement”) dated May 23, 2006 with terms that generally parallel to the Loan and Security Agreement and (ii) an Export-Import Bank of the United States (the “Ex-Im Bank”) Working Capital Guarantee Program Borrower Agreement (the “Guarantee Agreement”).On October 16, 2012, we entered into amendments to the SVB loan Agreements, effective September 30, 2012, and also re-executed the Guarantee Agreement as of October 16, 2012 (the “2012 Amendments”). We collectively refer to the Loan and Security Agreement and the Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement herein, as each have been amended time to time, as the “Amended SVB Loan Agreements.” 

14
 

 

The Loan and Security Agreement and the Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement were established in favor of SVB for the purpose of providing us with working capital to finance the manufacture, production or purchase and subsequent export of our finished goods or services and a means to use our assets related to our domestic and foreign receivables to secure our borrowings. The Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement and the Guaranty Agreement were established primarily as a means to use our assets related to our foreign receivables to secure our borrowings. SVB and the Ex-Im Bank required that we execute the Guarantee Agreement as a condition precedent to SVB establishing the Loan and Security Agreement and Ex-Im Bank providing the Guarantee Agreement.

 

The Amended SVB Loan Agreements provide for a revolving line of credit that in the aggregate may not exceed $4.0 million and the Term Loan.

 

The extended maturity date for the revolving line of credit under the Amended SVB Loan Agreements is September 30, 2014. The 2012 Amendments also reduced the interest rate to a rate per annum equal to the greater of the prime rate plus 0.75% or 4.0%, provided that we maintain a monthly quick ratio of 1.0 to 1.0 or greater. The quick ratio measures our ability to use our cash and cash equivalents maintained at SVB (or “quick assets”) to extinguish or retire our current liabilities immediately. If this ratio is not met, the interest rate will become the greater of the prime rate plus 1.25% or 4.0%. Additionally, the interest rate on the Term Loan was reduced to the prime rate plus 1.50%, payable monthly. The 2012 Amendments required the payment of a fee of $5,000 for the Amended Loan and Security Agreement and $10,000 for the Amended Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement, upon execution, respectively. We also are required to pay an additional $5,000 and $10,000 fee for the Amended Loan and Security Agreement and Amended Ex-Im Loan and Security Agreement, respectively, on September 30, 2013.

 

Pursuant to the Amended SVB Loan Agreements, the available borrowing capacity under the revolving line of credit is limited to the lesser of (i) $4.0 million or (ii) the current portion of the trade receivable balance, less 50% of the balance of deferred revenue, less outstanding borrowings on the revolving line of credit.

 

As of December 31, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding on the revolving line of credit under the Amended SVB Loan Agreements and the Term Loan is being repaid over 36 equal monthly installments with a maturity date of September 30, 2013.

 

The Amended SVB Loan Agreements adjust our Minimum Tangible Net Worth (“Minimum TNW”) covenant beginning as of September 30, 2012 from approximately $7.5 million to $6.0 million. This amount will adjust upward, as further defined in the agreements, to the extent we raise additional equity or debt financing or achieve net income in future quarters. Our Actual Tangible Net Worth (“Actual TNW”) is calculated as total shareholders’ equity, less goodwill. If we continue to incur net losses, we may have difficulty satisfying the Minimum TNW financial covenant in the future.

 

The following table sets forth the Minimum TNW compared to our Actual TNW:

The increase in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to an increase in inventories resulting from (i) increased buffer stock to help improve our ability to fulfill expected customer demand and to support the introduction of new products, and (ii) inventory purchases in anticipation of expected customer demand.

 

We also utilized cash in the current year period to pay down certain accrued royalties and other liabilities. The increase in the use of cash was partially offset by the reduction in our net loss for the current year period.

 

Investing Activities

 

The decrease in net cash used in investing activities was primarily related to the decrease in capital expenditures for the purchase of property and equipment.

 

Financing Activities

 

The decrease in net cash used in financing activities was primarily related to the decrease in the payments for capital lease obligations as certain of our capital leases expired during the current year period.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As part of our ongoing business, we have not participated in transactions that generate material relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities (“SPEs”), which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. As of December 31, 2012, we have not been involved in any material unconsolidated SPEs. 

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this Item 3.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this report (the “Evaluation Date”).  Based upon this evaluation, our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer concluded as of the Evaluation Date that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective such that the information relating to the Company, including our consolidated subsidiaries, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

  

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of any changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during our most recently completed fiscal quarter.  Based on that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that there has not been any change in our internal control over financial reporting during that fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

  

 

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

None.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

We operate in a rapidly changing environment and our business, financial condition and results of operations are subject to a number of factors, risks and uncertainties, including those previously disclosed under Part I. Item 1A “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 (the “Form 10-K”), as well as any amendments thereto or additions and changes thereto contained in subsequent filings of quarterly or current reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K. The disclosures in our Form 10-K and in other reports and filings are not necessarily a definitive list of all factors that may affect our business, financial condition and future results of operations. There have been no material changes to the risk factors as disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, except as set forth below.

Delays in qualifying product revisions of existing products at certain of our customers could result in the delay or loss of sales to those customers, which could negatively impact our business and financial results.

 

Our industry is characterized by intense competition, rapidly evolving technology and continually changing customer requirements. These factors could cause us to change or otherwise accelerate our plans to “end of life” current versions of certain products.  As a result, we are currently developing new revisions to a number of our existing products.  For example, in 2013, we will revise our xPort product.

 

Prior to purchasing our products, some of our customers require that products undergo a qualification process, which may involve testing of the products in the customer’s system. A subsequent revision to a product’s hardware or firmware, changes in the manufacturing process or the selection of a new supplier by us may require a new qualification process, which may result in delays in sales to customers, loss of sales, or having us holding excess or obsolete inventory.

 

After products are qualified, it can take additional time before the customer commences volume production of components or devices that incorporate our products.  If we are unsuccessful or delayed in qualifying any new or revised products with a customer, such failure or delay would preclude or delay sales of such product to the customer, and could negatively impact our financial results. In addition, new revisions to our products could cause our customers to alter the timing of their purchases, by either accelerating or delaying purchases, which could result in fluctuations of net revenue from quarter to quarter.
