SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or Exchange Act. Forward-looking statements are predictive in nature and can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and generally include words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates” and similar expressions. Certain of the matters discussed herein concerning, among other items, our operations, cash flows, financial position and economic performance including, in particular, future sales, product demand, competition and the effect of economic conditions, include forward-looking statements.

 

These statements and other projections contained herein expressing opinions about future outcomes and non-historical information, are subject to uncertainties and, therefore, there is no assurance that the outcomes expressed in these statements will be achieved. Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from the expectations expressed in forward-looking statements contained herein. Given these uncertainties, you should not place any reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date hereof. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as amended, and elsewhere in this report and the risks discussed in our other filings with the SEC.

 

We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under the securities laws of the United States.

AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP

 

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1. FORMATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization

 

Air Industries Group is a Nevada corporation (“AIRI”). As of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements presented are those of AIRI, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries; Air Industries Machining Corp. (“AIM”), Nassau Tool Works, Inc. (“NTW”), and the Sterling Engineering Corporation (“Sterling”), (together, the “Company”). The results of Eur-Pac Corporation (“EPC”) and Electronic Connection Corporation (“ECC”) are included in discontinued operations since operations ceased on March 31, 2019. See Note 2 for details of discontinued operations.

 

Principal Business Activities

 

The Company is primarily engaged in manufacturing aircraft structural parts, and assemblies for prime defense contractors in the aerospace industry in the United States. NTW is a manufacturer of aerospace components, principally landing gear for F-16 and F-18 fighter aircraft. Sterling manufactures components and provides services for jet engines and ground-power turbines. The Company’s customers consist mainly of publicly traded companies in the aerospace industry.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, from which the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet dated December 31, 2019 was derived.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain account balances in 2019 have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. 

 

Impact of Covid-19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization announced that infections caused by the coronavirus disease of 2019 (“COVID-19”) had become pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the U.S. President announced a national emergency relating to the disease. National, state and local authorities have adopted various regulations and orders, including mandates on the number of people that may gather in one location and closing non-essential businesses. To date, the Company has been deemed an essential business and has not curtailed its operations.

 

The measures adopted by various governments and agencies, as well as the decision by many individuals and businesses to voluntarily shut down or self-quarantine, have and are expected to continue to have serious adverse impacts on domestic and foreign economies of uncertain severity and duration. The effectiveness of economic stabilization efforts adopted by governments is uncertain. The likely overall economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be highly negative to the general economy and has been particularly negative on the commercial travel industry and commercial aerospace industries.

 

In accordance with the Department of Defense guidance issued in March 2020 designating the Defense Industrial Base as a critical infrastructure workforce, the Company’s facilities have continued to operate in support of essential products and services required to meet national security commitments to the U.S. government and the U.S. military, however, facility closures or work slowdowns or temporary stoppages could occur. Although the Company’s facilities are open, it was unable to operate at full capacity or achieve high levels of productivity particularly in the second calendar quarter of fiscal 2020 due to the implementation of enhanced safety procedures, increased employee absenteeism and intermittent closings of other businesses that supply goods or services to the Company. These impediments began to dissipate in the third calendar quarter. By September 2020 operating conditions were close to normal; however, business and operating conditions remain volatile.

Beginning in April 2020, the COVID–19 crisis resulted in a reduction to 2020 revenue and operating margins in portions of its business. This negative effect continued in May 2020 and to a lesser extent in June 2020. The decrease in revenue resulted from employee absenteeism, supplier disruption, changes in employee productivity, and related program delays or challenges. The Company and its employees, suppliers, customers and its global community continue to face tremendous challenges. While these challenges lessened in the third calendar quarter, the Company cannot predict how this dynamic situation will evolve or the impact it will have on the Company’s results of operations.

 

The Company has implemented procedures to promote employee safety including more frequent and enhanced cleaning and adjusted schedules and work flows to support physical distancing. These actions have resulted in increased operating costs. In addition, a number of the Company’s suppliers and customers have intermittently suspended or otherwise reduced their operations, and the Company is experiencing some supply chain challenges. Suppliers are also experiencing liquidity pressures and disruptions to their operations as a result of COVID-19. The challenges with our suppliers have been ameliorated during the third quarter and their operations have substantially returned to normal. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, we had large numbers of employees working remotely. As of September 30, 2020 essentially all employees have returned to work at our facilities.

 

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) was signed into law. The CARES Act provides aid to small businesses through programs administered by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The CARES Act includes, among other things, provisions relating to payroll tax credits and deferrals, net operating loss carryback periods, alternative minimum tax credits and technical corrections to tax depreciation methods for qualified improvement property. The CARES Act also established a Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), whereby certain small businesses are eligible for a loan to fund payroll expenses, rent, and related costs.

 

In May 2020, AIM, NTW and Sterling (each a “Borrower”) entered into government subsidized loans with Sterling National Bank (“SNB”) as the lender in an aggregate principal amount of approximately $2.4 million (“SBA Loans”). Each SBA Loan is evidenced by a promissory note. At least 60% of the proceeds of each Loan must be used for payroll and payroll-related costs, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the federal statute authorizing the loan program administered by the SBA and the rules promulgated thereunder (the “Loan Program”). The Borrower has applied to SNB for forgiveness and SNB has approved and submitted the forgiveness application to the SBA for final approval in accordance with the applicable provisions of the federal statute authorizing the Loan Program. See Note 6.

 

The Company has elected to defer the deposit and payment of employer’s portion of Social Security taxes pursuant to Section 2302 of the CARES Act. These deferred amounts must be repaid 50% on December 31, 2021 with the remaining 50% on December 31, 2022. As of September 30, 2020, the Company has deferred $429,000, which is classified as Deferred payroll tax liability – CARES Act on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

In addition, as a result of the passage of the CARES Act, the Company received a tax refund of $1,416,000 from the filing of a net operating loss carryback claim. See Note 10.

 

The Company believes that based on its confirmed orders, funds generated from operations, amounts received under government subsidized loan programs and amounts available under its credit facility, it will have sufficient cash on hand to support its activities through November 1, 2021.

 

Subsequent Events

 

Management has evaluated subsequent events through the date of this filing.

Note 2. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

As discussed in Note 1, the Company disposed of its EPC and ECC subsidiaries in March 2019. As required, the Company has retrospectively recast its condensed consolidated statements of operations for the 2019 period presented. As such, these businesses are reported as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. The Company has not segregated the cash flows of these businesses in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Management was also required to make certain assumptions and apply judgment to determine historical expenses related to the discontinued operations presented in prior periods. Unless noted otherwise, discussion in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements refers to the Company’s continuing operations.

 

The following table presents the results of discontinued operations presented separately in the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019:

 

   Three Months

Non-cash operating amounts for discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 include depreciation and amortization of $0 and $6,000, respectively. There were no capital expenditures for discontinued operations for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. There were no other significant non-cash operating amounts or investing items of the discontinued operations for the period.

 

Note 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Inventory Valuation

 

For annual periods, the Company values inventory at the lower of cost on a first-in-first-out basis or estimated net realizable value. The Company does not take physical inventories at interim quarterly reporting periods. Historically, in each period, substantially all of the inventory value has been estimated using a gross profit percentage based on annual gross profit percentages of the immediately preceding year as applied to the net sales of the current period. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company determined that its gross profits by segment were below its 2019 gross profit percentages and accordingly has adjusted margins to less than those of 2019. Adjustments to reconcile the annual physical inventory to the Company’s books are recorded in the fourth quarter.

Credit and Concentration Risks

 

There were three customers that represented 70.6% and two customers that represented 61.7% of total net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. This is set forth in the table below.

*Customer was less than 10% of accounts receivable sales at September 30, 2020.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

During the year, the Company had occasionally maintained balances in its bank accounts that were in excess of the FDIC insurance limit. The Company has not experienced any losses on these accounts.

 

Major Suppliers

 

The Company has several key sole-source suppliers of various parts that are important for one or more of its products. These suppliers are its only source for such parts and, therefore, in the event any of them were to go out of business or be unable or unwilling to provide parts for any reason, its business could be severely harmed.

Leases

 

The Company accounts for leases under ASC 842, “Leases.” All leases are required to be recorded on the balance sheet and are classified as either operating leases or finance leases. The lease classification affects the expense recognition in the income statement. Operating lease charges are recorded entirely in operating expenses. Finance lease charges are split, where amortization of the right-of- use asset is recorded in operating expenses and an implied interest component is recorded in interest expense.

 

Earnings (Loss) per share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing the net income (loss) applicable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period.

 

For purposes of calculating diluted earnings per common share, the numerator includes net income plus interest on convertible notes payable assumed converted as of the first day of the period. The denominator includes both the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period and the number of common stock equivalents if the inclusion of such common stock equivalents is dilutive. Dilutive common stock equivalents potentially include stock options and warrants using the treasury stock method and convertible notes payable using the if-converted method.

 

The following is the calculation of net (loss) income applicable to common stockholders utilized to calculate the EPS:

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended 
   Sept 30,
2020
   Sept 30,
2019
   Sept 30,

Income (loss) from continuing operations  $(477,000)  $398,000   $(1,003,000)  $(1,332,000)

Income (loss) used to calculate earnings per share  $(477,000)  $518,000   $(1,003,000)  $(1,332,000)

 

The following is a reconciliation of the denominators of basic and diluted earnings per share computations:

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended

The following securities have been excluded from the calculation as the exercise price was greater than the average market price of the common shares:

The following securities have been excluded from the calculation even though the exercise price was less than the average market price of the common shares during the periods set forth below because the effect of including these potential shares was anti-dilutive due to the net loss incurred during these periods:

    7,548,000    -    7,548,000    6,505,000 

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB ASC 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation.” Under the fair value recognition provision of the ASC, stock-based compensation cost is estimated at the grant date based on the fair value of the award. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options and warrants granted using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model. Stock based compensation expense for employees amounted to $52,000 and $25,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $266,000 and $351,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Stock compensation expense for directors amounted to $58,000 and $56,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively and $159,000 and $187,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Stock compensation expense for employees and directors was included in operating expenses on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the acquisition cost of businesses over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired. The goodwill amount of $163,000 at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 relates to the acquisition of NTW.

 

Goodwill is not amortized, but is tested at least annually for impairment, or if circumstances occur that more likely than not reduce the fair value of the reporting unit below its carrying amount.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic was a triggering event for testing whether goodwill has been impaired. The Company performed a qualitative assessment and determined it is more likely than not that the fair value exceeds the carrying value of $163,000 as of September 30, 2020. The Company will continue to monitor the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in future quarters. Changes in the Company’s forecasts or further decreases in the value of its common stock could cause book values to exceed fair values which may result in goodwill impairment charges in future periods.

  

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) (“ASU 2020-06”), which is intended to address issues identified as a result of the complexity associated with applying GAAP for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. For convertible instruments, ASU 2020-06 reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock, and enhances information transparency by making targeted improvements to the disclosures for convertible instruments and earnings-per-share guidance on the basis of feedback from financial statement users. ASU 2020-06 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2021. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance on its financial statements.

 

12

 

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. 

 

The Company does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 4. PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

The components of property and equipment at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 consisted of the following:

 

   September 30,   December 31,

Depreciation expense for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $576,000 and $712,000, respectively. Depreciation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $1,920,000 and $2,085,000, respectively.

 

Assets held under financed lease obligations are depreciated over the shorter of their related lease terms or their estimated productive lives. Depreciation of assets under finance leases is included in depreciation expense for 2020 and 2019. Accumulated depreciation on these assets was approximately $6,359,000 and $5,936,000 as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

 

Note 5. LEASES

 

The Company has operating and finance leases for leased office and manufacturing facilities and equipment leases. The Company leases certain machinery and equipment under finance leases and leases its offices and manufacturing facilities under operating leases.

Sterling National Bank (“SNB”)

 

On December 31, 2019, the Company entered into a new loan facility (“SNB Facility”) with Sterling National Bank, (“SNB”) expiring on December 30, 2022. The new loan facility provides for a $16,000,000 revolving loan (“SNB revolving line of credit”) and a term loan (“SNB term loan”).

 

Proceeds from the SNB Facility repaid the Company’s outstanding loan facility (“PNC Facility”) with PNC Bank N.A. (“PNC”).

 

14

 

 

The formula to determine the amounts of revolving advances permitted to be borrowed under the SNB revolving line of credit is based on a percentage of the Company’s eligible receivables and eligible inventory (as defined in the SNB Facility). Each day, the Company’s cash collections are swept directly by SNB to reduce the SNB revolving loan balance and the Company then borrows according to a borrowing base formula. The Company’s receivables are payable directly into a lockbox controlled by SNB (subject to the terms of the SNB Facility).

 

The repayment terms of the SNB term loan provide for monthly principal installments in the amount of $45,238, payable on the first business day of each month, beginning on February 1, 2020, with a final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest payable on December 30, 2022. In addition, for so long as the SNB term loan remains outstanding, if Excess Cash Flow (as defined) is a positive number for any fiscal year, beginning with the year ending December 31, 2020, the Company shall pay to SNB an amount equal to the lesser of (i) twenty-five percent (25%) of the Excess Cash Flow for such Fiscal Year and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the term loan. Such payment shall be made to SNB and applied to the outstanding principal balance of the term loan, on or prior to April 15 of the Fiscal Year immediately following such Fiscal Year.

  

On November 6, 2020, the Company entered into the First Amendment to Loan and Security Agreement (“First Amendment”). The terms of the agreement increase the Term Loan to $5,685,000. The repayment terms of the term loan were amended to provide monthly principal installments in the amount of $67,679 beginning on December 1, 2020, with a final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest payable on December 30, 2022. Additionally, the date by which certain subordinated third-party notes need to be extended by was changed from September 30, 2020 to November 30, 2020. The Company has paid an amendment fee of $20,000.

 

The Company may voluntarily prepay balances under the SNB Facility. Any prepayment of less than all of the outstanding principal of the SNB term loan is applied to the principal of the SNB term loan.

 

The terms of the SNB Facility require that, among other things, the Company maintain a specified Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of 1.25 to 1.00 at the end of each Fiscal Quarter beginning with the Fiscal Quarter ending March 31, 2020. In addition, the Company is limited in the amount of Capital Expenditures it can make. The SNB Loan Agreement required the Company by September 30, 2020, to either (i) extend the maturity date of certain subordinate convertible notes to a date more than six months after December 31, 2022 or alternatively (ii) convert these notes to common stock of the Company. As of September 30, 2020, the Company was not in compliance with all loan covenants. As a result, the full balance due under the term note was classified as a current liability in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2020. In connection with the First Amendment, the bank waived all events of default identified as of and through September 30, 2020. The SNB Facility also restricts the amount of dividends the Company may pay to its stockholders. Substantially all of the Company’s assets are pledged as collateral under the SNB Facility.

 

The aggregate payments for the term note at September 30, 2020 are as follows:

 

For the twelve months ending  Amount 
December 31, 2020 (remainder of the year)  $136,000 
December 31, 2021   543,000 
December 31, 2022   2,759,000 
SNB Term Loans payable   3,438,000 
Less: debt issuance costs   (52,000)
Total SNB Term loan payable, net of debt issuance costs   3,386,000 
Less: Current portion of SNB term loan payable   3,386,000 
Total long-term portion of SNB term loan payable  $- 

 

Under the terms of the SNB Facility, both the SNB revolving line of credit and the SNB term loan will bear an interest rate equal to 30-day LIBOR (with a 1% floor) plus 2.5%. The average interest rate charged during the period ended September 30, 2020 was 3.5%.

As of September 30, 2020, our debt to SNB in the amount of $19,269,000 consisted of the SNB revolving line of credit note in the amount of $15,883,000 and the SNB term loan in the amount of $3,386,000. As of December 31, 2019, our debt to SNB in the amount of $16,343,000 consisted of the SNB revolving line of credit note in the amount of $12,543,000 and the SNB term loan in the amount of $3,800,000.

 

Interest expense related to the SNB Facility amounted to approximately $147,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and $420,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

 

PNC Bank N.A. (“PNC”)

 

The Company previously maintained a financing facility with PNC. Under such facility, substantially all of the Company’s assets were pledged as collateral. The PNC Facility provided for a $15,000,000 revolving line of credit (“PNC revolving line of credit”) and a term loan (“PNC term loan”).

 

Interest expense related to the PNC Facility amounted to approximately $391,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and $954,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

On December 31, 2019, both the PNC revolving line of credit and PNC term loan were paid in full and all assets that were previously pledged as collateral were released.

The Company financed the 2019 acquisition of manufacturing equipment with a third-party loan. The loan obligation totaled $170,000 and $385,000 as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively and bears interest at 3% per annum.

 

The Company has also borrowed to purchase a delivery vehicle in July 2020. The loan obligation totaled $50,000 and $0 as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. The loan bears no interest and a final payment is due and payable for all unpaid principal on July 20, 2026.

SBA Loans

 

In May 2020, AIM, NTW and Sterling entered into SBA Loans with SNB as the lender in an aggregate principal amount of $2,414,000 all of which remains outstanding. Each SBA Loan is evidenced by a Note. Subject to the terms of the Note, the SBA Loan bears interest at a fixed rate of one percent (1%) per annum, with the first six months of interest deferred, has an initial term of two years, and is unsecured and guaranteed by the SBA. At least 60% of the proceeds of each Loan must be used for payroll and payroll-related costs, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the federal statute authorizing the loan program administered by the SBA and the rules promulgated thereunder (the “Loan Program”). Each Note provides for customary events of default including, among other things, cross-defaults on any other loan with SNB. Each SBA Loan may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an event of default. 

 

The Company has elected to treat the SBA Loans as debt under FASB ASC 470. As such, the Company will derecognize the liability only when the loans are forgiven in whole or in part and the Company is legally released or repays the loans.

 

18

 

 

The Company used the $2,414,000 of loans for allowed payroll and benefits expenses and expects the majority of the loans, if not all, will be forgiven. The Company has applied to the SNB for forgiveness and SNB has approved the application and submitted it to the SBA for final approval in accordance with the applicable provisions of the federal statute authorizing the Loan Program. The SBA will, subject to any SBA review of the loan or loan application, remit the appropriate forgiveness amount to SNB, plus any interest accrued through the date of payment, not later than 90 days after the lender issues its decision to the SBA. No assurance can be given that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the loan in whole or in part. In addition, as a borrower that received over $2 million, the Company expects to be subject to an audit to review our eligibility under the Loan Program. The timing and scope of the audit remains unclear and as a result, the Company is not able to forecast when it can expect a decision on loan forgiveness. The Company does not expect the audit will impact its eligibility for forgiveness under the program.

 

If the loans are not ultimately forgiven, the future minimum loan payments are as follows:

 

For the twelve months ending  Amount 
December 31, 2020 (remainder of the year)  $133,000 
December 31, 2021   1,607,000 
December 31, 2022   674,000 
Total SBA Loans   2,414,000 
Less: Current portion of SBA Loans   1,337,000 
Long-term portion of SBA Loans  $1,077,000 

 

NOTE 7. LIABILITY RELATED TO THE SALE OF FUTURE PROCEEDS FROM DISPOSITION OF SUBSIDIARY

 

In connection with the sale of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, AMK Welding, Inc. (“AMK”) to Meyer Tool, Inc., (“Meyer”) in 2017, Meyer was obligated to pay the Company within 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter, commencing April 1, 2017, an amount equal to five (5%) percent of the net sales of AMK for that quarter until the aggregate payments made to the Company (the “Meyer Agreement”) equals $1,500,000 (the “Maximum Amount”).

 

As of December 31, 2018, the Company received an aggregate of $363,000 under the Meyer Agreement.

 

In order to increase liquidity, on January 15, 2019, the Company entered into a “Purchase Agreement” with 15 accredited investors (the “Purchasers”), including Michael and Robert Taglich, pursuant to which the Company assigned to the Purchasers all of their rights, title and interest to the remaining $1,137,000 of the $1,500,000 in payments due from Meyer for the sale of AMK (the “Remaining Amount”) for an immediate payment of $800,000, including $100,000 from each of Michael and Robert Taglich, and $75,000 for the benefit of the children of Michael Taglich. The timing of the payments is based upon the net sales of AMK. If the Purchasers have not received the entire Remaining Amount by March 31, 2023, they have the right to demand payment of their pro rata portion of the unpaid Remaining Amount from the Company (“Put Right”). To the extent the Purchasers exercise their Put Right, the remaining payments from Meyer will be retained by the Company.

 

The Purchasers have agreed to pay Taglich Brothers a fee equal to 2% per annum of the purchase price paid by such Purchasers, payable quarterly, to be deducted from the payments of the Remaining Amount, for acting as paying agent in connection with the payments from Meyer.

 

Although the Company sold all of its rights to the Remaining Amount, as a result of its obligation to the Purchasers, the Company is required to account for the Remaining Amount or portion thereof as income when earned. The Company recorded the $800,000 in proceeds as a liability on its condensed consolidated balance sheet, net of transaction costs of $3,000. Transaction costs will be amortized to interest expense over the estimated life of the Purchase Agreement.

 

As payments are remitted to the Purchasers, the balance of the recorded liability will be effectively repaid over the life of the Purchase Agreement. To determine the amortization of the recorded liability, the Company is required to estimate the total amount of future payment to be received by the Purchasers. The Company estimates that the entire Remaining Amount will be received, and accordingly, the Remaining Amount less the $800,000 purchase price received (the “Discount”) will be amortized into the liability balance and recorded as interest expense. The Discount will be amortized through the earliest date that the Purchasers can exercise their Put Right, using the straight line method (which is not materially different than the effective interest method) over the estimated life of the Purchase Agreement with the Purchasers. Periodically, the Company will assess the estimated payments to be made to the Purchasers related to the Meyer Agreement, and to the extent the amount or timing of the payments is materially different from their original estimates, the Company will prospectively adjust the amortization of the liability. The amount or timing of the payments from Meyer are not within the Company’s control. Since the inception of the Purchase Agreement, the Company estimates the effective annual interest rate over the life of the agreement to be approximately 18%.

 

19

 

 

The liability is classified between the current and non-current portion of liability related to sale of future proceeds from disposition of subsidiary based on the estimated recognition of the payments to be received by the purchasers in the next 12 months from the financial statements reporting date.

 

The Company recognized $91,000 and $89,000 of non-cash income for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $302,000 and $198,000 of non-cash income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, reflected in “Other income, net” on the condensed consolidated statement of operations. Additionally, the Company recorded $26,000 and $27,000 of related non-cash interest expense related to the Purchase Agreement, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $90,000 and $60,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. 

 

The table below shows the activity within the liability account for the nine months ended September 30, 2020:

 

Liabilities related to sale of future proceeds from disposition of subsidiaries - as of December 31, 2019  $603,000 
Non-Cash other income recognized   (302,000)
Non-Cash interest expense recognized   90,000 
Liabilities related to sale of future proceeds from disposition of subsidiary - as of September 30, 2020   391,000 
Less: unamortized transaction costs   (3,000)
Liability related to sale of future proceeds from disposition of subsidiary, net  $388,000

On March 19, 2019, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the SPA with CPI Aerostructures, the Company received a notice from CPI claiming that the working capital deficit used to compute the purchase price was understated. The issue of the amount of the working capital deficit was submitted to BDO USA, LLP (“BDO”), acting as an expert, and it issued a report dated September 3, 2019, where it determined that the amount of the working capital deficit was approximately $4,145,870. On September 9, 2019 the Company received a demand from CPI for payment of such amount. The Company advised CPI that the determination of BDO is void because, among other things, it believes BDO exceeded the scope of its authority as set forth in the SPA. On September 27, 2019, CPI filed a notice of motion in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, against the Company seeking, among other things, an order of specific performance requiring delivery of the funds deposited in escrow, together with the balance of the working capital deficit which it claimed, and a judgment against the Company in the amount of approximately $4,200,000 of which $2,000,000 would be satisfied by delivery of the funds in escrow. On October 7, 2019, the Company agreed to the release of $619,316 of the funds held in escrow in respect of claims related to the working capital deficit not related to the value of WMI’s inventory. As of December 31, 2018, the Company has placed a reserve against substantially all of the escrowed amount and cannot estimate the amount of loss. For, among others, the reasons stated above the Company intends to contest vigorously any claim CPI may make for payment based on the BDO Report. Outside counsel for the company has advised that at this stage in the proceedings, it cannot offer an opinion as to the probable outcome.

 

On October 1, 2020, the court issued an order which stated that “CPI must commence a special proceeding to obtain the relief” sought by its Motion despite the fact that the stipulation of discontinuance entered into by CPI and the Company with respect to the action to enforce the SPA commenced by CPI on July 5, 2018, provided that the court would retain jurisdiction over the case. The court stated further that a special proceeding requires pleadings consisting of, among others, a petition which complies with the requirements for a complaint in an action and an answer. Since CPI brought the action in the form of a motion and not a complaint, neither party complied with the pleading requirements which the court stated is required. Consequently, the court denied CPI’s Motion and denied the Company’s cross motion to vacate BDO’s determination and conduct discovery.

 

The court’s decision does not resolve the Company’s dispute with CPI. CPI’s Motion was denied for procedural issues and the court did not consider the substance of the dispute. CPI, among other options, may choose to appeal this decision or commence a new proceeding. In either event, the Company intends to contest vigorously any claim CPI may make based on the BDO report.

 

Contract Pharmacal Corp. commenced an action on October 2, 2018, relating to a Sublease entered into between the Company and Contract Pharmacal in May 2018 with respect to the property at 110 Plant Avenue, Hauppauge, New York. In the action Contract Pharmacal seeks damages for an amount in excess of $1,000,000 for our failure to make the entire premises available by the Sublease commencement date. The Company disputes the validity of the claims asserted by Contract Pharmacal and believes it has meritorious defenses to those claims and have recently submitted a motion in opposition to its motion for summary judgement. As of September 30, 2020, it is not possible to estimate if a loss will be incurred, as such there has been no accrual.

 

From time to time we also may be engaged in various lawsuits and legal proceedings in the ordinary course of our business. We are currently not aware of any legal proceedings the ultimate outcome of which, in our judgment based on information currently available, would have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or operating results. There are no proceedings in which any of our directors, officers or affiliates, or any registered or beneficial stockholder of our common stock, is an adverse party or has a material interest averse to our interest. 

 

Note 10. INCOME TAXES

 

The Company recorded no federal income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 because the estimated annual effective tax rate was zero. In determining the estimated annual effective income tax rate, the Company analyzes various factors, including projections of the Company’s annual earnings and taxing jurisdictions in which the earnings will be generated, the impact of state and local income taxes, the ability to use tax credits and net operating loss carry forwards, and available tax planning alternatives.

 

21

 

 

As a result of the passage of the CARES Act, the Company received $1,416,000 from the filing of a net operating loss carryback claim. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of other provisions of the CARES Act on its accounting for income taxes and does not believe it has a material impact at this time.

 

The Company recorded no other federal income tax benefit for both of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

 

As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, the Company provided a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets since the Company believes it is more likely than not that its deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

Note 11. SEGMENT REPORTING

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 280, “Segment Reporting” (“ASC 280”), the Company discloses financial and descriptive information about its reportable operating segments. Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available and regularly evaluated by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

 

The Company follows ASC 280, which establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments in annual and interim financial statements, and requires that companies report financial and descriptive information about their reportable segments based on a management approach. ASC 280 also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major customers.

 

The Company divides its operations into two operating segments: Complex Machining which consists of AIM and NTW and Turbine Engine Components which consists of Sterling. Along with the Company’s operating subsidiaries, the Company reports the results of its corporate division as an independent segment.

 

For reporting purposes, EPC and ECC have been classified as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2019.

 

The accounting policies of each of the segments are the same as those described in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies. Intersegment transfers are recorded at the transferor’s cost, and there is no intercompany profit or loss on intersegment transfers. We evaluate performance based on revenue, gross profit contribution and assets employed.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes to those statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q and with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “2019 Form 10-K”). This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should specifically consider the various risk factors identified in this report that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

 

Business Overview

 

The financial statements contained in this report as well as the discussion below principally reflect the status of our business and the results of our operations as of September 30, 2020.

 

Air Industries Machining, Corp. (“AIM”) became a public company in 2005 and we are an aerospace company operating primarily in the defense industry. Our Complex Machining segment manufactures structural parts and assemblies that focus on flight safety, including landing gear, arresting gear, engine mounts, flight controls, throttle quadrants, and other components. Our Turbine Engine Components segment makes components and provides services for jet engines and ground-power turbines. Our products are currently deployed on a wide range of high-profile military and commercial aircraft including the Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk, Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Northrop Grumman E2D Hawkeye, the US Navy F-18 and USAF F-16 fighter aircraft, Boeing 777 and Airbus 380 commercial airliners. Our Turbine Engine segment makes components for jet engines that are used on the USAF F-15 and F-16, the Airbus A-330 and A-380, and the Boeing 777, in addition to a number of ground-power turbine applications.

 

The aerospace market is highly competitive in both the defense and commercial sectors and we face intense competition in all areas of our business. Nearly all of our revenues are derived by producing products to customer specifications after being awarded a contract through a competitive bidding process. As the commercial aerospace and defense industries continue to consolidate and major contractors seek to streamline supply chains by buying more complete sub-assemblies from fewer suppliers, we have sought to remain competitive not only by providing cost-effective world class service but also by increasing our ability to produce more complex and complete assemblies for our customers.

 

We are currently focused on positioning our business to obtain profitability, achieve positive cash flow and we remain resolute on meeting customers’ needs. We believe that an unyielding focus on our customers will allow us to execute on our existing backlog in a timely fashion. In fiscal 2020, in order to take advantage of the long-term growth opportunities we see in our markets, we made significant capital investments in new equipment. Additionally, we expanded our operations and manufacturing cells located in our Connecticut facility. We believe these investments will increase the volume and efficiency of production, increase the size of product we can make and allow us to offer additional services to our customers. We are pleased with the positive responses received from our customers to date.

 

Our ability to operate profitably is determined by our ability to win new contracts and renewals of existing contracts, and then fulfill these contracts on a timely basis at costs that enable us to generate a profit based upon the agreed upon contract price. Winning a contract generally requires that we submit a bid containing a fixed price for the product or products covered by the contract for an agreed upon period of time. Thus, when submitting bids, we are required to estimate our future costs of production and, since we often rely upon subcontractors, the prices we can obtain from our subcontractors.

 

24

 

 

While our revenues are largely determined by the number of contracts we are awarded, the volume of product delivered and price of product under each contract, our costs are determined by a number of factors. The principal factors impacting our costs are the cost of materials and supplies, labor, financing and the efficiency at which we can produce our products. The cost of materials used in the aerospace industry is highly volatile. In addition, the market for the skilled labor we require to operate our plants is highly competitive. The profit margin of the various products we sell varies based upon a number of factors, including the complexity of the product, the intensity of the competition for such product and, in some cases, the ability to deliver replacement parts on short notice. Thus, in assessing our performance from one period to another, a reader must understand that changes in profit margin can be the result of shifts in the mix of products sold. Our operations have a large percentage of fixed factory overhead. As a result, our profit margins are also highly variable with sales volumes as under-absorption of factory overhead decreases profits.

 

A very large percentage of the products we produce are used on military as opposed to civilian aircraft. These products can be replacements for aircraft already in the fleet of the armed services or for the production of new aircraft. Reductions to the Defense Department budget and decreased usage of aircraft reduces the demand for both new production and replacement spares. Recent increases in Defense Department spending has increased orders for our products.

 

COVID -19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization announced that infections caused by the coronavirus disease of 2019 (“COVID-19”) had become pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the U.S. President announced a national emergency relating to the disease. National, state and local authorities have adopted various regulations and orders, including mandates on the number of people that may gather in one location and closing non-essential businesses. To date, we have been deemed an essential business and have not curtailed our operations.

 

The measures adopted by various governments and agencies, as well as the decision by many individuals and businesses to voluntarily shut down or self-quarantine, have and are expected to continue to have serious adverse impacts on domestic and foreign economies of uncertain severity and duration. The effectiveness of economic stabilization efforts adopted by governments is uncertain. The likely overall economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be highly negative to the general economy and has been particularly negative on the commercial travel industry and commercial aerospace industries.

 

In accordance with the Department of Defense guidance issued in March 2020 designating the Defense Industrial Base as a critical infrastructure workforce, our facilities have continued to operate in support of essential products and services required to meet national security commitments to the U.S. Government and the U.S. military, however, facility closures or work slowdowns or temporary stoppages could occur. Although our facilities are open, we were unable to operate at full capacity or achieve high levels of productivity particularly in the second calendar quarter due to the implementation of enhanced safety procedures, increased employee absenteeism and intermittent closings of other businesses that supply goods or services to us. By September operating conditions were close to normal.

 

Our Company, employees, suppliers and customers, and our global community are facing tremendous challenges and we cannot predict how this dynamic situation will evolve or the impact it will have.

 

We have implemented procedures to promote employee safety including more frequent and enhanced cleaning and adjusted schedules and work-flows to support physical distancing. These actions have resulted in increased operating costs. In addition, a number of our suppliers and customers have intermittently suspended or otherwise reduced their operations, and we are experiencing some supply chain challenges. Suppliers are also experiencing liquidity pressures and disruptions to their operations as a result of COVID-19. During the three months ended June 30, 2020 we had large numbers of employees working remotely. By September 30, 2020, essentially all employees have returned to work at our facilities.

 

Segment Data

 

We follow Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 280, “Segment Reporting” (“ASC 280”), which establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments in annual and interim financial statements, ASC 280 requires that companies report financial and descriptive information about their reportable segments based on a management approach. ASC 280 also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major customers. 

 

25

 

 

We divide our operations into two operating segments: Complex Machining and Turbine Engine Components. Along with our operating subsidiaries, we report the results of our corporate office as an independent segment.

 

EPC and ECC were closed on March 31, 2019, and are classified as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ending September 30, 2019.

 

The accounting policies of our segments are the same as those described in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies. We evaluate performance based on revenue, gross profit contribution and assets employed.

Results of Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2020

 

Net Sales:

 

Consolidated net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $13,662,000, a decrease of $335,000, or 2.4%, compared with $13,997,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Net sales of our Complex Machining segment were $12,423,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2020, an increase of $140,000, or 1.1%, from $12,283,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2019. Net sales in our Turbine Engine Components segment for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $1,239,000, a decrease of $475,000, or 27.7%, compared with $1,714,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The decrease at our Turbine Engine Components segment was directly attributable to the negative business impacts caused by COVID-19.

 

As indicated in the table below, three customers represented 70.6% and two customers represented 61.7% of total sales for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively.

Gross Profit:

 

Consolidated gross profit from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $1,656,000, a decrease of $1,307,000, or 44.1%, as compared to gross profit of $2,963,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Consolidated gross profit as a percentage of sales was 12.1% and 21.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. These decreases were directly attributable to the negative business impact of COVID-19 which resulted in significant operating inefficiencies and increased safety related costs.

 

Interest and Financing Costs

 

Interest and financing costs for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $359,000 a decrease of $476,000 or 57.0% compared to $835,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. This decrease was due to lower interest rates and finance costs under the Company’s new credit facility (“SNB Facility”) with SNB, which replaced the Company’s previous credit facility (“PNC Facility”) with PNC Bank N.A. (“PNC”) as of December 31, 2019. 

 

Operating Expense

 

Consolidated operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $1,896,000 and increased by $88,000 or 4.9% compared to $1,808,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Net (Loss) Income

 

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $477,000, compared to a net income of $187,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The net loss was largely attributable to the impact of COVID-19 as discussed above. Losses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 from continuing operations were $477,000 compared to income of $398,000 from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Our net income for the three months ended September 30, 2019 includes a net loss from the discontinued operations of EPC and ECC in the amount of $211,000.

 

Results of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020

 

Net Sales:

 

Consolidated net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $35,603,000, a decrease of $5,640,000, or 13.7%, compared with $41,243,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Net sales of our Complex Machining segment were $31,795,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of $4,607,000, or 12.7%, from $36,402,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Net sales in our Turbine Engine Components segment were $3,808,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of $1,033,000, or 21.3% compared with $4,841,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. These decreases were directly attributable to the negative business impacts caused by COVID-19.

 

As indicated in the table below, three customers represented 74.2% and 73.4% of total sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively.

Gross Profit:

 

Consolidated gross profit from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $4,451,000, a decrease of $2,977,000, or 40.1%, as compared to gross profit of 7,428,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Consolidated gross profit as a percentage of sales was 12.5% and 18.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. These decreases were directly attributable to the negative business impacts of COVID-19 which resulted in significant operating inefficiencies and increased safety related costs.

 

Interest and Financing Costs

 

Interest and financing costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $1,167,000 a decrease of $1,623,000 or 58.2% compared to $2,790,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This decrease was due to lower interest rates and finance costs under SNB Facility, which replaced the PNC Facility as of December 31, 2019.

 

Operating Expense

 

Consolidated operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled $6,064,000 and increased by $222,000 or 3.8% compared to $5,842,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $1,003,000, compared to a net loss of $1,471,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, for the reasons discussed above. Losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 from continuing operations were $1,003,000 compared to losses of $1,332,000 from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 includes a net loss from the discontinued operations of EPC and ECC in the amount of $139,000.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Beginning in April 2020 the COVID–19 crisis resulted in a reduction to revenue and operating margins in portions of our business. This negative effect continued in May 2020 and to a somewhat lesser extent in June 2020. The decrease in revenue for the second quarter resulted from employee absenteeism, supplier disruption, changes in employee productivity, and related program delays or challenges. By September 30, 2020, essentially all employees had returned to work at our facilities. The challenges with our suppliers have largely been ameliorated and their operations have substantially returned to normal.

 

With respect to the remainder of 2020 and 2021, the negative impact COVID-19 may have on the broader global economy and the pace of the economic recovery and the aerospace industry is unknown. Given the unknown magnitude of the depth and duration of this crisis, we anticipate a more challenging macroeconomic environment in the remainder of the year.

 

Although the impact of COVID-19 on the commercial aerospace industry has been severe, the defense aerospace industry has not been as adversely impacted. We continue to have a substantial backlog. We believe that the contraction in commercial demand may result in orders being shifted to suppliers who are in a position to maintain their operations despite the impact of COVID-19. We have made capital investments in new machinery aggregating $2.5 million for four state-of-the-art machines. One machine was delivered in September and is fully operational, the balance of the machines are expected to be fully operational by December 31, 2020. In connection with these capital investments, we expanded our operations in Connecticut. We believe these investments will increase the volume and efficiency of production, increase the size of product we can make and allow us to offer additional services to our customers. We are pleased with the positive responses received to-date from our customers.

Although COVID-19 did negatively impact our liquidity, we took advantage of US government incentive programs to improve our liquidity as discussed below. These actions should help mitigate COVID-19 related negative impacts to our operating cash flows for the remainder of the year. Nevertheless, our cash flows from operations could be affected by various risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and other risks detailed in Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report.

 

1)Received Low Interest Loans from the SBA – In May 2020, AIM, NTW and Sterling (each a “Borrower”) entered into government subsidized loans with SNB in an aggregate principal amount of $2.4 million (“SBA Loans”). Subject to the terms of the note evidencing each loan (the “Notes”), each SBA Loan bears interest at a fixed rate of one percent (1%) per annum, with the first six months of interest deferred, has an initial term of two years, and is unsecured and guaranteed by the SBA. At least 60% of the proceeds of each Loan must be used for payroll and payroll-related costs, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Federal statute authorizing the loan program administered by the SBA and the rules promulgated thereunder (the “Loan Program”).

 

2)Applied for and Expect Forgiveness of the SBA Loans – In accordance with U.S. government regulations we have applied to SNB for forgiveness of each Loan in full and SNB has approved the applications and submitted them to the SBA for final approval. We expect our SBA Loans which approximate $2,414,000 as of September 30, 2020, to be ultimately forgiven.

 

3)Deferred Certain Tax Payments – In accordance with Section 2302 of the CARES Act, we have elected to defer the deposit and payment of the employer’s portion of Social Security taxes. These deferred amounts must be repaid 50% on December 31, 2021 with the remaining 50% on December 31, 2022. As of September 30, 2020, we deferred $429,000, which is included in Deferred payroll tax liability – CARES Act on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

4)Received a Net Operating Loss RefundPursuant to the CARES Act, we filed a net operating loss carryback claim for $1,416,000, which was received during the second quarter of this year.

 

In addition to the support received through the CARES Act, the U.S. Department of Defense has, to date, taken steps to increase the rate for certain progress payments from 80 percent to 90 percent for costs incurred and worked performed on relevant contracts.

 

We have taken the following additional significant steps to improve our liquidity:

  

1)Entered into a Lower Cost Financing Facility – On December 31, 2019, we entered into the SNB Facility which expires on December 30, 2022. The SNB Facility provides for a $16,000,000 revolving loan (“SNB revolving line of credit”) and a term loan (“SNB term loan”). Proceeds from the SNB Facility repaid our outstanding PNC Facility.

 

The formula to determine the amounts of revolving advances permitted to be borrowed under the SNB revolving line of credit is based on a percentage of eligible receivables and inventory (as defined in the SNB Facility).

 

Prior to the increase in the SNB term loan described below, the SNB term loan provided for monthly principal installments in the amount of $45,238, payable on the first business day of each month, beginning on February 1, 2020, with a final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest payable on December 30, 2022. In addition, for so long as the SNB term loan remains outstanding, if Excess Cash Flow (as defined) is a positive number for any fiscal year, beginning with the year ending December 31, 2020, we shall pay to SNB an amount equal to the lesser of (i) twenty-five percent (25%) of the Excess Cash Flow for such Fiscal Year and (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the term loan. Such payment shall be made to Lender and applied to the outstanding principal balance of the term loan, on or prior to April 15 of the Fiscal Year immediately following such Fiscal Year.

 

The terms of the SNB Facility require that, among other things, we maintain a specified Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of 1.25 to 1.00 at the end of each Fiscal Quarter beginning with the Fiscal Quarter ending March 31, 2020. In addition, we are limited in the amount of Capital Expenditures we can make. The SNB Facility required us by September 30, 2020, to cause the holders of certain subordinated convertible notes to either (i) extend the maturity date of such notes to a date more than six months after December 31, 2022, or (ii) convert the notes into common stock of the Company. As of September 30, 2020, we were not in compliance with all loan covenants. In connection with the First Amendment, the bank waived all events of default identified as of and through September 30, 2020. The SNB Facility also restricts the amount of dividends we may pay to our stockholders. Substantially all of our assets are pledged as collateral under the SNB Facility.

 

30

 

 

2)Increased Term Loan to modernize equipment - On November 6, 2020, we entered into the First Amendment to Loan and Security Agreement, increasing the Term Loan to $5,685,000. This allowed us to finance the acquisition of the new equipment at what we believe to be a reasonable interest rate.

 

The repayment terms of the term loan were amended to provide monthly principal installments in the amount of $67,679 beginning on December 1, 2020, with a final payment of any unpaid balance of principal and interest payable on December 30, 2022. Additionally, the date by which certain subordinated third party notes need to be extended by was changed from September 30, 2020 to November 30, 2020. We have paid an amendment fee of $20,000.

 

As of September 30, 2020, our debt to SNB in the amount of $19,269,000 consisted of the SNB revolving line of credit note in the amount of $15,883,000 and the SNB term loan in the amount of $3,386,000.

Cash Used in Investing Activities

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, cash used in investing activities was $1,471,000. This was comprised of the purchase of equipment.

 

Cash Provided by (Used in) Financing Activities

 

Cash provided by financing activities consists of the borrowings and repayments under our credit facilities with our senior lender, amounts borrowed pursuant to the CARES Act, increases in and repayments of financing lease obligations and other notes payable, and the proceeds from the sale of our equity offset by expenses associated with our financing activities and payments of our loans, equipment leases and finance lease obligations.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net cash provided by financing activities was $4,821,000. This was primarily comprised of proceeds from our SBA loans and SNB revolving loan in the amount of $2,414,000 and $3,340,000, respectively, and the sale of common stock in the amount $984,000, partially offset by costs related to the issuance of stock of $145,000 and repayments of $1,032,000 on our notes payable-related parties, $100,000 on our notes payable – third party, $414,000 on our term loan, $215,000 on our loan for equipment and $11,000 on our finance lease obligations.

 

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2020.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

A critical accounting policy is one that is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results of operations and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

 

Our condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and all applicable U.S. GAAP accounting standards effective as of September 30, 2020 have been taken into consideration in preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements. The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements requires estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and related disclosures. Some of those estimates are subjective and complex, and, consequently, actual results could differ from those estimates. The following accounting policies and estimates have been highlighted as significant because changes to certain judgments and assumptions inherent in these policies could affect our condensed consolidated financial statements:

 

Revenue recognition;

 

Inventory valuation;

 

Lease accounting;

 

Legal contingencies;

 

Stock-based compensation; and

 

Goodwill.

 

32

 

 

We base our estimates, to the extent possible, on historical experience. Historical information is modified as appropriate based on current business factors and various assumptions that we believe are necessary to form a basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates on an on-going basis and make changes when necessary. Actual results could differ from our estimates.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40) (“ASU 2020-06”), which is intended to address issues identified as a result of the complexity associated with applying GAAP for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. For convertible instruments, ASU 2020-06 reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock, and enhances information transparency by making targeted improvements to the disclosures for convertible instruments and earnings-per-share guidance on the basis of feedback from financial statement users. ASU 2020-06 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2021. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance on its financial statements.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. 

 

The Company does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our senior management is responsible for establishing and maintaining a system of disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, (the “Exchange Act”) designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its principal executive officer or officers and principal financial officer or officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

We have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Report under the supervision of and with the participation of management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer have concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have not been 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, during our most recently completed fiscal quarter which is the subject of this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Prospective investors are encouraged to consider the risks described in our 2019 Form 10-K, our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contained in this Report and other information publicly disclosed or contained in documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission before purchasing our securities. The following risk factor supplements the risk factors described in our 2019 Form 10-K, and should be read in conjunction with the other risk factors presented in our Annual Report which are incorporated herein by reference.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting macroeconomic disruption have affected how we, our customers and our suppliers are operating our businesses, and the duration and extent to which this will impact our future results of operations and overall financial performance remains uncertain.


COVID -19

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization announced that infections caused by the coronavirus disease of 2019 (“COVID-19”) had become pandemic and the U.S. President announced a National Emergency relating to the disease. National, state and local authorities, including those in which our offices and manufacturing facilities are located, have adopted various regulations and orders, including “shelter in place” rules, restrictions on travel, mandates on the number of people that may gather in one location and closing non-essential businesses. The global impact of the outbreak is continually evolving.

 

The measures adopted by various governments and agencies, as well as the decision by many individuals and businesses will voluntarily shut down or self-quarantine, had and are expected to continue to have serious adverse impacts on domestic and foreign economies of uncertain severity and duration. The effectiveness of economic stabilization efforts adopted by governments is uncertain. The likely overall economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been and will continue to be highly negative to the general economy. While we continue to operate substantially in the normal course, we have implemented procedures to promote employee safety including more frequent and enhanced cleaning and adjusted schedules and work-flows to support physical distancing and our facilities are not operating under full staffing during the second quarter. These actions have resulted in increased operating costs. Further, our operations were reduced by employee absenteeism in the second quarter. During the third quarter essentially all employees have returned to work in our facilities. An increase in COVID-19 infections may result in further governmental restrictions and we may be forced to close or reduce operations as a result.

 

While the potential economic impact brought by COVID-19 may be difficult to assess or predict, the pandemic has resulted in significant disruption of the commercial travel and aerospace industries. The pandemic has also caused significant disruption in global financial markets, and a recession or long-term market correction resulting from the spread of COVID-19 could cause severe disruption and instability in the global financial markets or deteriorations in credit and financing conditions, which could make it difficult for us to access debt and equity capital on attractive terms, or at all, and impact our ability to fund business activities and repay debt on a timely basis.

 

At this time, we cannot forecast with any certainty whether and to what degree the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will increase, or the extent to which the disruption may materially impact our consolidated financial position, consolidated results of operations, and consolidated cash flows in fiscal 2020.

 

35

 

 

We have debt outstanding under the Paycheck Protection Program, which is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to loans administered by the SBA under the CARES Act, and we may be subject to an audit or enforcement action related to these loans.

 

AIM, NTW and Sterling (each a “Borrower”) entered into government subsidized loans with SNB pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program in an aggregate principal amount of $2,414,000 (“SBA Loans”). At least 60% of the proceeds of each SBA Loan (the “Proceeds”) must be used for payroll and payroll-related costs, in accordance with the provisions of the CARES Act and the rules promulgated thereunder (the “Loan Program”). Each Borrower may apply to SNB for forgiveness of a portion of its SBA Loan if the Proceeds are used for payroll costs, mortgage interest payments, lease payments or utility payments. While we believe each Borrower has used the proceeds of its SBA Loan for purposes that would permit forgiveness of substantially all of its SBA Loan, no assurance can be provided that the SBA Loans will be forgiven in whole or in part.

 

Each Note provides for customary events of default and contains a cross default provision in the event of a default under one of our other loans with SNB. In the event of a default under a Note, SNB would have the right to declare any and all borrowings outstanding, together with accrued and unpaid interest, to be immediately due and payable. If substantially all of the debt evidenced by the SBA Loans were to be accelerated, we may not have sufficient cash, be able to borrow sufficient funds or be able to sell sufficient assets to repay the debt, which could immediately materially and adversely affect our cash flows, business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Additionally, each Note is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to loans administered by the SBA under the Loan Program, which is subject to revisions and changes by the SBA and Congress. We may also be subject to CARES Act-specific lookbacks and audits that may be conducted by other federal agencies, including oversight bodies created under the CARES Act. Given that we received more than $2.0 million under our SBA Loans, we will be subject to an audit. Complying with such audit could divert management attention and require us to expend significant time and resources, which could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
