NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(all currency in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

(unaudited)

 

NOTE 1: NATURE OF ORGANIZATION AND OPERATIONS

Our main operations are conducted directly through Creative Realities, Inc., and under our wholly owned subsidiaries Creative Realities, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Creative Realities Canada, Inc., and ConeXus World Global, LLC, a Kentucky limited liability company.

 

Liquidity and Financial Condition

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis of the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

 

We have incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 we recognized net income/(loss) of ($2,238) and $492 respectively. As of March 31, 2018, we had cash and cash equivalents of $742 and working capital deficit of ($5,388).

 

On November 13, 2017, Slipstream Communications, LLC, a related party, extended the maturity date of our term loan to August 17, 2019 and extended the maturity date of our promissory notes on a rolling quarter addition basis which is now May 25, 2019. While management believes that due to the extension of our debt maturity date, our current cash balance and our operational forecast for 2018, we can continue as a going concern through at least May 15, 2019, given our net losses and working capital deficit, we obtained a continued support letter from Slipstream Communications, LLC through May 15, 2019. We can provide no assurance that our ongoing operational efforts will be successful which could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and cash flows.

 

See Note 8 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a discussion of the Company’s debt obligations.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

1.  Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X and include all of the information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") for interim financial reporting. These unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company and related footnotes for the year ended December 31, 2017, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 26, 2018.

 

The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results of operations for a full year. It is the opinion of management that all necessary adjustments for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods have been made and are of a recurring nature unless otherwise disclosed herein.

 

2.  Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue on accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which we adopted effective January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective method. See further discussion of the impact of adoption and current revenue recognition policy in Note 4.

 

3. Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market (net realizable value), determined by the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method, and consist of the following:

 

   March 31,   December 31, 
   2018   2017 
Finished goods  $615   $719 
Work-in-process   155    132 
Total inventories  $770   $851 

 

 4.  Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

We review the carrying value of all long-lived assets, including property and equipment, for impairment in accordance with ASC 360-10-05-4, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. Under ASC 360-10-05-4, impairment losses are recorded whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable.

 

If the impairment tests indicate that the carrying value of the asset is greater than the expected undiscounted cash flows to be generated by such asset, an impairment loss would be recognized. The impairment loss is determined as the amount by which the carrying value of such asset exceeds its fair value. We generally measure fair value by considering sale prices for similar assets or by discounting estimated future cash flows from such assets using an appropriate discount rate. Assets to be disposed of are carried at the lower of their carrying value or fair value less costs to sell. Considerable management judgment is necessary to estimate the fair value of assets, and accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates.

 

5. Basic and Diluted Income/(Loss) per Common Share

 

Basic and diluted income/(loss) per common share for all periods presented is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Basic weighted average shares outstanding includes only outstanding common shares. Diluted weighted average shares outstanding includes outstanding common shares and potential dilutive common shares outstanding in accordance with the treasury stock method. Shares reserved for outstanding stock options and warrants totaling approximately 48.5 and 35.9 million at March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017, respectively, were excluded from the computation of income/(loss) per share. Additionally, the potential common shares issuable upon conversion of convertible preferred stock and convertible promissory notes of 37.7 and 37.7 million were excluded at March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, as their effect was antidilutive due to net loss. Net income/(loss) attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 is after dividends on convertible preferred stock of $111 and $113, respectively.

 

6. Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes are recognized in the financial statements for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates. Temporary differences arise from net operating losses, differences in basis of intangibles (other than goodwill), stock-based compensation, reserves for uncollectible accounts receivable and inventory, differences in depreciation methods, and accrued expenses. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company accounts for uncertain tax positions utilizing an established recognition threshold and measurement attributes for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. We had no uncertain tax positions as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

 Page 5 of 26 

 

 

7. Goodwill and Definite-Lived Intangible Assets

 

We follow the provisions of ASC 350, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Pursuant to ASC 350, goodwill acquired in a purchase business combination is not amortized, but instead tested for impairment at least annually. The Company uses a measurement date of September 30. There was no impairment loss recognized on goodwill or definite-lived intangible assets during the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 (see Note 7).

 

8. Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of 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 disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Our significant estimates include: the allowance for doubtful accounts, recognition of revenue, deferred tax assets, deferred revenue, depreciable lives and depreciation methods for property and equipment, valuation of warrants and other stock-based compensation and other assumptions and estimates used to evaluate the recoverability of long-lived assets, goodwill and other intangible assets and the related amortization methods and periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

NOTE 3: RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS 

 

In March 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-05, Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118. The amendments in this update provide guidance on when to record and disclose provisional amounts for certain income tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Reform Act"). The amendments also require any provisional amounts or subsequent adjustments to be included in net income from continuing operations. Additionally, this ASU discusses required disclosures that an entity must make with regard to the Tax Reform Act. This ASU is effective immediately as new information is available to adjust provisional amounts that were previously recorded. The Company has adopted this standard and will continue to evaluate indicators that may give rise to a change in our tax provision as a result of the Tax Reform Act. Refer to Note 11 for additional information on the Tax Reform Act.

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which replaces most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP and is intended to improve and converge with international standards the financial reporting requirements for revenue from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 and its amendments were included primarily in ASC 606. The core principle of ASC 606 is that an entity should recognize revenue for the transfer of goods or services equal to the amount that it expects to be entitled to receive for those goods or services. ASC 606 also requires additional disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments. We adopted ASC 606 effective January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective method. Refer to Note 4.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Distinguishing Liabilities From Equity (Topic 480), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) Part I. Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments With Down Round Features, Part II Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception. This update provided guidance that changes the classification analysis of certain equity-linked financial instruments with down-round features. These instruments are no longer accounted for as derivative liabilities at fair value as a result of the existence of a down round feature. The Company early adopted this ASU in 2017 and has applied the guidance in this ASU retrospectively to all prior periods. As a result of adopting this ASU, the Company no longer recognizes a liability related to 16,482,635 warrants, which were only classified as liabilities as a result of having down round features. The debt discount for those warrants has been recalculated to reflect the relative fair value of the warrants and the debt. In addition, the Company determined that the impact to the income/(loss) per share as a result of the down round features was not material. The impact to the financial statements for the three-months ended March 31, 2017 is as follows:

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09 Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Scope of Modification Accounting. This update provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting for Stock Compensation. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2018; there was no impact on our financial statements for any period presented as a result of adoption.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-04, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. This update requires an entity to perform a two-step test to determine the amount, if any, of goodwill impairment. In Step 1, an entity compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the entity performs Step 2 and compares the implied fair value of goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill for that reporting unit. An impairment charge equal to the amount by which the carrying amount of goodwill for the reporting unit exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill is recorded, limited to the amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. To address concerns over the cost and complexity of the two-step goodwill impairment test, the amendments in this ASU removes the second step of the test. An entity will apply a one-step quantitative test and record the amount of goodwill impairment as the excess of a reporting unit's carrying amount over its fair value, not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. The new guidance does not amend the optional qualitative assessment of goodwill impairment. This guidance is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on our financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01 Business Combinations, guidance clarifying the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or businesses. The guidance provides a screen to determine when an integrated set of assets and activities is not a business, provides a framework to assist entities in evaluating whether both an input and substantive process are present, and narrows the definition of the term output. The Company adopted this standard on a prospective basis effective January 1, 2018.

 

 Page 7 of 26 

 

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which provides guidance on the classification of certain cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows, including those related to debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance, and distributions received from equity method investees. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2018; there was no impact on our financial statements for any period presented as a result of adoption.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which provides guidance with respect to measuring credit losses on financial instruments, including trade receivables. This guidance eliminates the probable initial recognition threshold that was previously required prior to recognizing a credit loss on financial instruments. The credit loss estimate can now reflect an entity’s current estimate of all future expected credit losses. Under the previous guidance, an entity only considered past events and current conditions. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We are currently evaluating the impact, if any that the adoption of this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which amended guidance for lease arrangements in order to increase transparency and comparability by providing additional information to users of financial statements regarding an entity's leasing activities. The revised guidance seeks to achieve this objective by requiring reporting entities to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for substantially all lease arrangements. The guidance, which is required to be adopted in the first quarter of 2019, will be applied on a modified retrospective basis beginning with the earliest period presented. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 4: REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 using the modified retrospective method for all contracts not completed as of the date of adoption. Results for reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for the prior period. Under this method, we concluded that the cumulative effect of applying this guidance was not material to the financial statements and no adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated deficit was required on the adoption date.

 

Under ASC 606, the Company accounts for revenue using the following steps:

 

Identify the contract, or contracts, with a customer
Identify the performance obligations in the contract
Determine the transaction price
Allocate the transaction price to the identified performance obligations
Recognize revenue when, or as, the Company satisfies the performance obligations

 

The Company combines contracts with the same customer into a single contract for accounting purposes when the contracts are entered into at or near the same time and the contracts are negotiated as a single commercial package, consideration in one contract depends on the other contract, or the services are considered a single performance obligation. If an arrangement involves multiple performance obligations, the items are analyzed to determine the separate units of accounting, whether the items have value on a standalone basis and whether there is objective and reliable evidence of their standalone selling price. The total contract transaction price is allocated to the identified performance obligations based upon the relative standalone selling prices of the performance obligations. The standalone selling price is based on an observable price for services sold to other comparable customers, when available, or an estimated selling price using a cost plus margin approach.

 

The Company estimates the amount of total contract consideration it expects to receive for variable arrangements by determining the most likely amount it expects to earn from the arrangement based on the expected quantities of services it expects to provide and the contractual pricing based on those quantities. The Company only includes some or a portion of variable consideration in the transaction price when it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved. The Company considers the sensitivity of the estimate, its relationship and experience with the client and variable services being performed, the range of possible revenue amounts and the magnitude of the variable consideration to the overall arrangement. The Company receives variable consideration in very few instances.

 

As discussed in more detail below, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services under the terms of a contract and is measured as the amount of consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for transferring goods or providing services. The Company does not have any material extended payment terms as payment is due at or shortly after the time of the sale. Observable prices are used to determine the standalone selling price of separate performance obligations or a cost plus margin approach when one is not available. Sales, value-added and other taxes collected concurrently with revenue producing activities are excluded from revenue.

The Company recognizes contract assets or unbilled receivables related to revenue recognized for services completed but not yet invoiced to the clients. Unbilled receivables are recorded as accounts receivable when the Company has an unconditional right to contract consideration. A contract liability is recognized as deferred revenue when the Company invoices clients in advance of performing the related services under the terms of a contract. Deferred revenue is recognized as revenue when the Company has satisfied the related performance obligation. 

 

Deferred contract acquisition costs were evaluated for inclusion in other assets; however, the Company elected to use the practical expedient for recording an immediate expense for those incremental costs of obtaining contracts, including certain design/engineering services, commissions, incentives and payroll taxes, as these incremental and recoverable costs have terms that do not exceed one year.

 

The Company provides innovative digital marketing technology and solutions to retail companies, individual retail brands, enterprises and organizations throughout the United States and in certain international markets. The Company’s technology and solutions include: digital merchandising systems and omni-channel customer engagement systems, interactive digital shopping assistants, advisors and kiosks, and other interactive marketing technologies such as mobile, social media, point-of-sale transactions, beaconing and web-based media that enable our customers to transform how they engage with consumers.

 

We typically generate revenue through the following sources:

 

Hardware:
oSystem hardware sales – displays, computers and peripherals

 

Services and Other:
oProfessional implementation and installation services
oSoftware design and development services
oSoftware as a service, including content management
oMaintenance and support services

 

System hardware sales

 

Included in “hardware” are system hardware sales whereby revenue is recognized generally upon shipment of the product or customer acceptance depending upon contractual arrangements with the customer in instances in which the sale of hardware is the sole performance obligation.

 

Shipping charges billed to customers are included in hardware sales and the related shipping costs are included in hardware cost of sales. The cost of freight and shipping to the customer is recognized in cost of sales at the time of transfer of control to the customer. The prior period amounts and data have been reclassified in the financial statements and related notes in order to conform to the 2018 presentation.

 

Installation services

 

The Company performs outsourced installation services for customers and recognizes revenue upon completion of the installations.

 

When system hardware sales include installation services to be performed by the Company, the goods and services in the contract are not distinct, so the arrangement is accounted for as a single performance obligation. Our customers control the work-in-process and can make changes to the design specifications over the contract term. Revenues are recognized over time as the installation services are completed based on the relative portion of labor hours completed as a percentage of the budgeted hours for the installation.

 

The aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to installation service performance obligations that are unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) as of March 31, 2018 were $550. We expect to recognize approximately $433 during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and the remainder in the three months ended December 31, 2018.

Software design and development services

 

Software and software license sales are revenue when a fixed fee order has been received and delivery has occurred to the customer. Revenue is recognized generally upon customer acceptance (point-in-time) of the software product and verification that it meets the required specifications. Software is delivered to customers electronically.

 

Software as a service

 

Software as a service includes revenue from software licensing and delivery in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. These services often include software updates which provide customers with rights to unspecified software product upgrades and maintenance releases and patches released during the term of the support period. We account for revenue from these services in accordance with ASC 985-20-15-5 and recognize revenue ratably over the performance period.

 

Maintenance and support services

 

The Company sells support services which include access to technical support personnel for software and hardware troubleshooting. The Company offers a hosting service through our network operations center, or NOC, allowing the ability to monitor and support its customers’ networks 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. These contracts are generally 12-36 months in length. Revenue is recognized over the term of the agreement in proportion to the costs incurred in fulfilling performance obligations under the contract.

 

Maintenance and support fees are based on the level of service provided to end customers, which can range from monitoring the health of a customer’s network to supporting a sophisticated web-portal to managing the end-to-end hardware and software of a digital marketing system. These agreements are renewable by the customer. Rates for maintenance and support, including subsequent renewal rates, are typically established based upon a fee per location, per device, or a specified percentage of net software license fees as set forth in the arrangement. These contracts are generally 12-36 months in length. Revenue is recognized over the term of the agreement in proportion to the costs incurred in fulfilling performance obligations under the contract.

 

The Company also performs time and materials-based maintenance and repair work for customers. Revenue is recognized at a point in time when the performance obligation has been fully satisfied.

 

In addition to changes in the timing of when we record variable consideration, ASC 606 provided clarification about the classification of certain costs relating to revenue arrangements with customers. As a result of our analysis, we did not identify any components of our revenue transactions which required reclassification between gross and net presentation.

 

 

NOTE 5: FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

We measure certain financial assets, including cash equivalents, at fair value on a recurring basis. In accordance with FASB ASC 820-10-30, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, ASC 820-10-35 establishes a three-level hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The three hierarchy levels are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 — Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

 

Level 2 — Valuations based on observable inputs (other than Level 1 prices), such as quoted prices for similar assets at the measurement date; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly.

 

Level 3 — Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and involve management judgment and the reporting entity’s own assumptions about market participants and pricing.

 

 Page 10 of 26 

 

 

The following table presents information about the Company's warrant liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques the Company used to determine such fair value. See Note 12 for the inputs used for the probability weighted Black Scholes valuations when the warrants were issued and at March 31, 2018.

 

       Quote Prices In Active Markets   Significant Other Observable Inputs   Significant Other Unobservable Inputs

Obligations under the secured convertible promissory notes are secured by a grant of collateral security in all of the tangible assets of the co-makers pursuant to the terms of an amended and restated security agreement.

 

Term Notes

 

On August 17, 2016, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with Slipstream Communications, LLC (“Slipstream”), a related party (see Note 10), and obtained a $3.0 million term loan, with interest thereon at 8% per annum. The loan currently matures August 17, 2019. The term loan contains certain customary restrictions including, but not limited to, restrictions on mergers and consolidations with other entities, cancellation of any debt or incurring new debt (subject to certain exceptions), and other customary restrictions.

 

On January 16, 2018, we entered into the Third Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement with Slipstream and obtained a $1.0 million revolving loan, with interest thereon at 8% per annum, maturing on January 16, 2019. In connection with the loan, we issued Slipstream a five-year warrant to purchase up to 1,851,851 shares of Creative Realities’ common stock at a per share price of $0.27 (subject to adjustment). The fair value of the warrants was $266, which is accounted for as an additional debt discount and amortized over the remaining life of the loan.

 

Our principal subsidiaries – Creative Realities, Inc., Creative Realities, LLC, and Conexus World Global, LLC – are co-makers of the secured convertible promissory notes.

 

See Note 12 for the Black Scholes inputs used to calculate the fair value of the warrants.

 

Convertible Promissory Notes

 

In December 2016 and January 2017, Slipstream Communications, LLC purchased all of our outstanding convertible promissory notes from the original debtholders. The terms of the notes are set forth in the table above and are discussed in further detail below.

 

 Page 12 of 26 

 

 

The convertible promissory notes were issued in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933. Our principal subsidiaries — Creative Realities, LLC, Creative Realities Canada, Inc., and Conexus World Global, LLC — are also parties to the Securities Purchase Agreement and are co-makers of the secured convertible promissory notes. Obligations under the secured convertible promissory notes are secured by a grant of collateral security in all of the personal property of the co-makers pursuant to the terms of a security agreement. Obligations under the secured convertible promissory notes are secured by a grant of collateral security in all the personal property of the co-makers pursuant to the terms of a security agreement. The secured convertible promissory notes bear interest at the rate of 14% per annum. Of this amount, 12% per annum is payable monthly in cash, and the remaining 2% per annum is payable in the form an additional principal through increases in the principal amount of the note. Upon the consummation of a change in control transaction of the Company or a default, interest on the secured convertible promissory note will increase to the rate of 17% per annum. The secured convertible promissory note contains other customary terms. See Note 11 for the Black Scholes inputs used to calculate the fair value of the warrants issued in connection with such notes. On August 10, 2017, Slipstream extended the maturity date of all the promissory notes to October 15, 2018. The change was accounted for as a modification of the debt. On November 13, 2017, Slipstream elected to extend the maturity date of the convertible promissory notes on a rolling quarter addition basis to January 15, 2019, which is now extended to May 25, 2019.

 

At any time prior to the maturity date, the holder of a promissory note may convert the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest into our common stock at its conversion rate. We may not prepay the secured convertible promissory note prior to the maturity date. The secured convertible promissory note contains other customary terms. See Note 13 for the Black Scholes inputs used to calculate the fair value of the warrants.

 

On June 29, 2016, we entered into a secured convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $50 and an immediately exercisable five-year warrant to purchase up to 89,286 shares of the Company’s common stock at a per-share price of $0.28 (subject to adjustment). The fair value of the warrants on the issuance date was $6, which the Company subsequently revised pursuant to ASU 2017-11 to be $4. This note was subsequently purchased by Slipstream on December 22, 2016. See Note 2 for details on the effect this ASU had on the Company’s financial statements.

 

On June 13, 2016, upon receipt of an additional $300 of principal, we exchanged two short term demand notes entered into in July 2015 totaling $150 for two secured convertible promissory notes totaling a principal amount of $450 and immediately exercisable five-year warrants to purchase up to 803,572 shares of the Company’s common stock at a per-share price of $0.28 (subject to adjustment). This exchange was accounted for as a modification of the debt. The fair value of the warrants on the issuance date was $57, which the Company subsequently revised pursuant to ASU 2017-11 to be $40. On December 20, 2016, $200 of this note was subsequently purchased by Slipstream; the remaining $250 was already owed to Slipstream. See Note 2 for details on the effect this ASU had on the Company’s financial statements.

 

On or about May 3, 2016, we entered into a secured convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $500,000 and an immediately exercisable five-year warrant to purchase up to 892,857 shares of the Company’s common stock at a per-share price of $0.28 (subject to adjustment). In connection with the secured convertible promissory note, we incurred commissions to a placement agent aggregating $25. The fair value of the warrants on the issuance date was $89, which the Company subsequently revised pursuant to ASU 2017-11 to be $60. This note was subsequently purchased by Slipstream on December 22, 2016. See Note 2 for details on the effect this ASU had on the Company’s financial statements.

 

NOTE 9: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Lease termination

 

On August 10, 2017, we announced the planned closure of our office facilities located at 22 Audrey Place, Fairfield, New Jersey 07004 which housed our previous operations center and ceased use of the facilities in February 2018. In ceasing use of these facilities, we recorded a one-time non-cash charge of $474 to accrue for the remaining rent under the lease term, net of anticipated subtenant rental income.

 

Structured Settlement Program

 

In March 2017, the Company settled and/or wrote off debt of $1,109 for $243 cash payment and recognized a gain of $866. This debt included $693 of payables previously recorded by our dissolved subsidiary Broadcast International, Inc, as we had exhausted all efforts to identify and settle these obligations in the first quarter of 2017. There were no such settlements in 2018.

 

 Page 13 of 26 

 

 

Litigation

 

The Company is involved in various legal proceedings incidental to the operations of its business. The Company believes that the outcome of all such other pending legal proceedings in the aggregate will not have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition, liquidity, or operating results.

 

Termination benefits

 

On August 10, 2017, the Company announced that it was closing its New Jersey and Minnesota locations. As of March 31, 2018, the Company has accrued one-time termination benefits related to severance to the affected employees of $75 and will recognize the expense over the period the employees are expected to continue service to the Company.

 

NOTE 10: RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

On January 16, 2018, we entered into the Third Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement with Slipstream Communications, LLC, a related party investor, under which we obtained a $1.0 million revolving loan, with interest thereon at 8% per annum, maturing on January 16, 2019. In connection with the loan, we issued the lender a five-year warrant to purchase up to 1,851,851 shares of Creative Realities’ common stock at a per share price of $0.27 (subject to adjustment). The fair value of the warrants was $266, which is accounted for as an additional debt discount and amortized over the remaining life of the loan.

 

For the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company had sales with a related party entity that is approximately 20% owned by a member of senior management. Sales were $417 for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 and $108 during the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Accounts receivable due from the related party was $2,503 and $3,017 at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.

 

In December 2016 and January 2017, the Company’s majority shareholder and investor, Slipstream Communications LLC acquired all of the Company’s outstanding debt (see Note 8).

 

NOTE 11: INCOME TAXES

 

Our deferred tax assets are primarily related to net federal and state operating loss carryforwards (NOLs). We have substantial NOLs that are limited in its usage by IRC Section 382. IRC Section 382 generally imposes an annual limitation on the amount of NOLs that may be used to offset taxable income when a corporation has undergone significant changes in stock ownership within a statutory testing period. We have performed a preliminary analysis of the annual NOL carryforwards and limitations that are available to be used against taxable income. Based on the history of losses of the Company, there continues to be a full valuation allowance against the net deferred tax assets of the Company.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we reported tax expense of $46 including $40 resulting from the goodwill on the acquisition of Wireless Ronin Technologies. The net deferred liability at March 31, 2018 of $589 represents the liability relating to indefinite lived assets, which is not more likely than not to be offset by the Company’s deferred tax assets.

 

The Tax Reform Act was signed into law on December 22, 2017. Among other things, the Tax Reform Act reduced the U.S. federal corporate tax rate from 35.0 percent to 21.0 percent effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2017. We applied the guidance in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 ("SAB 118") when accounting for the enactment date effects of the Tax Reform Act. Accordingly, we remeasured our deferred taxes as of December 31, 2017 to reflect the reduced rate that will apply in future periods when these deferred taxes are settled or realized, resulting in a one-time $0.2 million net tax benefit in 2017. Upon further analyses of certain aspects of the Tax Reform Act and refinement of our calculations during the three months ended March 31, 2018, we made no adjustments to our provisional amounts recorded. We consider the accounting for the enactment-date remeasurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities to be complete as of March 31, 2018.

 

NOTE 12: CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK

 

The preferred stock entitles its holders to a 6% dividend, payable semi-annually in cash or in kind through the three-year anniversary of the original issue date, and from and after such three-year anniversary in duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of common stock. The three-year anniversary of the initial investment date occurred during the second half of 2017 for $5.2 million and the first quarter of 2018 for the remaining $0.3 million originally issued Convertible Preferred Stock and therefore dividends on those investments will be paid via issuance of common shares at all future dividend dates. As of March 31, 2018, the pro rata portion of earned dividends to be distributed as of June 30, 2018 were the equivalent of 3,822 Series A Preferred Stock, which represents 371,073 equivalent common shares based on the volume-weighted adjusted price utilized for conversion. The fair value of these shares are reflected at fair value as a dividend on preferred stock in the condensed consolidated statement of operations and do not impact net loss for the period.

 

 Page 14 of 26 

 

 

The preferred stock may be converted into our common stock at the option of a holder at an initial conversion price as adjusted of $0.255 per share. Subject to certain conditions, we may call and redeem the preferred stock after three years. From and after the three-year anniversary of the date of issuance, the Company has the right (but not the obligation), upon at least 30 days prior written notice, to call some or all of the Series A Preferred Stock for redemption at any time after the common stock has had a closing price on the relevant trading market, for a period of at least 15 consecutive days, all of which must be after the three-year anniversary date of the purchase agreement, equal to at least one and one-half times the initial conversion price. 

 

During such time as a majority of the preferred stock sold remains outstanding, holders will have the right to elect a member to our Board of Directors. The preferred stock has full-ratchet price protection in the event that we issue common stock below the conversion price, as adjusted, subject to certain customary exceptions. The warrants issued to purchasers of the preferred stock contain weighted-average price protection in the event that we issue common stock below the exercise price, as adjusted, again subject to certain customary exceptions. In the Securities Purchase Agreement, we granted purchasers of the preferred stock certain registration rights pertaining to the common shares they may receive upon conversion of their preferred stock and upon exercise of their warrants.

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2018, there were no conversions of Convertible Preferred Stock into common stock. During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, accredited investors converted 240,250 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock for 942,157 shares of common stock.

 

NOTE 13: WARRANTS

 

On January 16, 2018, we entered into the Third Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement with Slipstream Communications, LLC, a related party investor, under which we obtained a $1.0 million revolving loan, with interest thereon at 8% per annum, maturing on January 16, 2019. In connection with the loan, we issued the lender a five-year warrant to purchase up to 1,851,851 shares of Creative Realities’ common stock at a per share price of $0.27 (subject to adjustment). The fair value of the warrants on the issuance date was $266.

NOTE 15: STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Stock Compensation Expense Information

 

ASC 718-10, Stock Compensation, requires measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all stock-based payments including warrants, stock options, restricted stock grants and stock bonuses based on estimated fair values. Under the Amended and Restated 2006 Equity Incentive Plan, the Company reserved 1,720,000 shares for purchase by the Company’s employees and under the Amended and Restated 2006 Non-Employee Director Stock Option Plan the Company reserved 700,000 shares for purchase by the Company’s employees. There are 365,500 options outstanding under the 2006 Equity Incentive Plan. In October 2014, the Company’s shareholders approved the 2014 Stock Incentive Plan, under which 7,390,355 shares were reserved for purchase by the Company’s employees. There are 7,300,000 options outstanding under the 2014 Stock Incentive Plan.

 

 Page 16 of 26 

 

 

Compensation expense recognized for the issuance of stock options for the three ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 was as follows:

 

   Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 
   2018   2017 
Stock-based compensation costs included in:    
Costs of sales  $(6)  $2 
Sales and marketing expense   6    19 
General and administrative expense   64    50 
Total stock-based compensation expense  $64   $71 

 

At March 31, 2018, there was approximately $409 of total unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested share-based awards. Generally, this expense will be recognized over the next 2.3 years and will be adjusted for any future changes in estimated forfeitures.

 

Stock-based compensation expense is based on awards ultimately expected to vest and is reduced for estimated forfeitures. ASC 718-10-55 requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. The Company applied a pre-vesting forfeiture rate of 10% based on upon actual historical experience for employee option awards of the registrant.

 

On October 15, 2015, our current CEO was awarded 4,951,557 performance shares with a grant date to be determined upon certain conditions being satisfied. Those conditions had not been met as of March 31, 2018 and no compensation expense had been recorded.

Net income/(loss)  $(2,238)  $492   $(2,730)   -555%

 

Sales

 

Sales decreased by $2,353 or 37% in 2018 compared to 2017 primarily as the result of a reduction on nonrecurring project sales with a longstanding client, which sales were $4,200 in 2017 and $1,193 in 2018.  Excluding those nonrecurring project sales from the customer in each period presented, sales increased $654, or 29% from $2,219 to $2,873 as the result of the continued growth of sales within our key existing customer relationships.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit margin on a percentage basis decreased to 37% in 2018 from 44% in 2017, and decreased by $1,338 in absolute dollars during the same period. The decrease in gross profit margin percentage and absolute dollars is the result of the reduction in nonrecurring project sales from one longstanding customer noted above which had a higher margin as it was services-related.

 

Sales and Marketing Expenses

 

Sales and marketing expenses generally include the salaries, taxes, and benefits of our sales and marketing personnel, as well as trade show activities, travel, and other related sales and marketing costs. Sales and marketing expenses increased by $85 or 20% in 2018 compared to 2017. The increase was primarily due to an increase in payroll expense related to our growing sales force and related travel expenses.

 

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

Research and development expenses increased by $164 or 104% in 2018 compared to 2017 as the result of an increase in amortization expense related to capitalized software and salaries costs driven by an increased investment in products and offerings in the most recent twelve months.

 

 Page 20 of 26 

 

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

Total general and administrative expenses decreased by $44 or 3% in 2018 compared to 2017 as a result of fewer office locations operated in the current year.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses decreased by $75 or 19% in 2018 compared to 2017. This decrease was primarily a result of the reduction in amortization expense relate to a lower cost basis in intangible assets as certain assets become fully amortized.

 

Lease Termination Expense

 

On August 10, 2017, we announced the planned closure of our office facilities located at 22 Audrey Place, Fairfield, New Jersey 07004 which housed our previous operations center and ceased use of the facilities in February 2018. In ceasing use of these facilities, we recorded a one-time non-cash charge of $474 to accrue for the remaining rent under the lease term, net of anticipated subtenant rental income.

 

Interest Expense

 

See Note 8 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for a discussion of the Company’s debt and related interest expense obligations.

 

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Liability

 

See Note 5 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for a discussion of the Company’s non-cash change in warrant liability for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

 

Gain on Settlement of Debt

 

In March 2017, the Company settled and/or wrote off debt of $1,109 for $243 cash payment and recognized a gain of $866. This debt included $693 of payables previously recorded by our dissolved subsidiary Broadcast International, Inc, as we had exhausted all efforts to identify and settle these obligations in the first quarter of 2017. There were no such settlements in 2018.

Supplemental Operating Results on a Non-GAAP Basis

 

The following non-GAAP data, which adjusts for the categories of expenses described below, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Our management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful information for investors, shareholders and other stakeholders of our company in gauging our results of operations on an ongoing basis. We believe that EBITDA is a performance measure and not a liquidity measure, and therefore a reconciliation between net loss/income and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has been provided. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss/income as an indicator of performance or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of cash flows, in each case as determined in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of liquidity. In addition, EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. We do not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

 

 The following unaudited table presents the Company’s GAAP (Net Loss) measure, and the corresponding adjustments, to calculate “EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA” for the quarters ending March 31, 2018 through March 31, 2017, as adjusted for the retrospective adoption of ASU No. 2017-11:

Liquidity and Capital Resources 

 

We have incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 we recognized net income/(loss) of ($2,238) and $492 respectively. As of March 31, 2018, we had cash and cash equivalents of $742 and working capital deficit of $(5,388).

 

On November 13, 2017, Slipstream Communications, LLC, a related party, extended the maturity date of our term loan to August 17, 2019 and extended the maturity date of our convertible promissory notes on a rolling quarter addition basis which is now May 25, 2019. On January 16, 2018, Slipstream extended the maturity date of our revolving promissory note to January 16, 2019. While management believes that due to the extension of our debt maturity date, our current cash balance and our operational forecast for 2018, we can continue as a going concern through at least May 15, 2019, given our net losses and working capital deficit, we obtained a continued support letter from Slipstream Communications, LLC through May 15, 2019. We can provide no assurance that our ongoing operational efforts will be successful which could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and cash flows.

 

See Note 8 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a discussion of the Company’s debt obligations.

 

Operating Activities

 

As of December 31, 2017, we had an accumulated deficit of ($26,231). The cash flows provided by/(used) in operating activities was ($1,112) and $2,979 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The cash used in operating activities was driven by the Company’s net loss ($2,238), reduction in accounts payable ($489) and change in the fair value of the warrant liability ($197) offset by recording of the lease termination liability and a reduction in accounts receivable of $596.

 

 Page 22 of 26 

 

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 was ($149) compared to ($141) during 2017. The use of cash in both periods represents acquisition of capital assets, primarily related to the capitalization of software costs. We currently do not have any material commitments for capital expenditures as of March 31, 2018, nor do we anticipate any significant expenditures in 2018.

  

Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by/(used in) financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $1,000 compared to ($786) in 2017. The increase was related to issuance of debt in 2018 as compared to paying off debt in January 2017.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We have no material commitments for capital expenditures, and we do not anticipate any significant capital expenditures for the remainder of 2018.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, we did not engage in any off-balance sheet arrangements set forth in Item 303(a) (4) of Regulation S-K.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

An evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (principal executive officer), Chief Financial Officer (principal financial officer) and VP of Finance, of the effectiveness 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 ("Exchange Act"), as of the end of the period covered by this report. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

 

Based on our evaluation and those criteria, management identified that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of March 31, 2018 and that material weaknesses exist including: (1) a deficient process to close the monthly consolidated financial statements and prepare comprehensive and timely account analysis and (2) upon adoption of ASC 606 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, design and implementation of related reporting and disclosure controls..

 

A material weakness is a control deficiency (within the meaning of Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Auditing Standard No. 5) or combination of control deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management plans to expand the scope of its remediation of its internal controls over financial reporting at the consolidated level in 2018, and to develop a plan to complete the remediation of the foregoing deficiencies.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

We were not party to any material legal proceedings as of May 15, 2018, and there were no such proceedings pending during the period covered by this Report.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors
