BUSINESS

Changes from Prior Periodic Reports

In this report we have complied with the disclosures required by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") release No. 33-10825 "Modernization of Regulation S-K Items 101, 103, and 105", and we have early adopted the changes in disclosure standards included in SEC release No. 33-10890 "Management's Discussion and Analysis, Selected Financial Data, Supplementary Financial Information."

Company Overview

CalAmp Corp. (including its subsidiaries unless the context otherwise requires, “CalAmp”, “the Company”, “we”, “our”, or “us”), incorporated in 1987, is a global connected intelligence company helping people and business work smarter. We partner with transportation and logistics, government, industrial equipment and automotive industries to track, monitor and recover vital assets with real-time visibility and insights that allow people and businesses everywhere to thrive.

We combine Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) applications, telematics services, our CalAmp Telematics Cloud(“CTC”) platform and intelligent edge computing products to deliver a comprehensive view of vehicles, equipment, drivers, assets and cargo in real time. Our unified Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem generates actionable insights that help businesses make better decisions that reduce costs, increase revenue, maximize productivity, optimize operations and improve safety of their services and operations. While each one of our offerings can be combined for a complete end-to-end telematics solution, we also partner with our customers to develop custom solutions that integrate with back-office systems or custom software, without losing the actionable mobility data that only CalAmp can provide.

Our CTC platform offers valuable telematics services that help companies more efficiently manage their vital assets including fleet video intelligence, remote asset tracking, real-time crash response and driver behavior scoring, among others. Our programmable telematics devices enable computing at the edge that captures business-critical data from mobile assets, their passengers and contents anywhere in the world at any time. We deliver connected intelligence that enables the efficient transport of life-saving pharmaceuticals, optimizes equipment utilization that builds our communities and infrastructure, provides greater public works visibility to citizens, and transports students safely to the classroom.

Economic conditions, competitive markets, global regulatory environments, the COVID-19 pandemic and the transition to 4G-and-5G mobile connectivity are challenging traditional businesses to drive operational efficiencies, track processes, reduce costs, fund business growth and innovation, and enhance profitability and cash flow. Therefore, effective management of business spend is imperative if businesses are to consistently achieve profitable growth. Businesses must also evaluate their underutilized resources and leverage this new connected ecosystem to gather real-time data and analytics to drive greater efficiencies across the organization. CalAmp helps enterprises and mid- to large-sized businesses do this effectively so that they can compete in the on-demand economy and fulfill their customers’ expectations for fast and reliable on-time products and services.  

Our company culture is driven by four core values:  

 

Customer Success – we are driven to establish, develop, and build strong relationships with our customers. We are focused on understanding their respective organizations and helping them meet and surpass their goals while facilitating the successful implementation of our services and our products.

 

Innovation – we are committed to transforming ideas into new and improved products and processes. We respond resourcefully to demands and challenges in order to advance, compete and differentiate ourselves successfully in the marketplace and bring value to our customers as well as our teams.

 

Execution – we seek to understand, anticipate and respond to our customers’ needs by working hard to achieve measurable results. We achieve total customer satisfaction by understanding what the customer wants and delivering it flawlessly. Satisfied customers are essential to our success.

Inclusion we believe in the integrity, honesty and trust of our employees. These are key ingredients to collaboration and inclusion. We listen to what others have to say, valuing their opinion, and speaking the truth in a positive manner. We take personal responsibility for our actions and are committed to building diverse teams with fairness and respect for all.  

The successful execution of this approach, in combination with our core values, will help customers to succeed and thus drive our growth.

We have approximately one million software and service subscribers today within our core businesses, and more than 20 million of our systems’ devices have been installed globally in multiple market verticals including automotive, insurance, transportation and logistics, government and industrial equipment. Our Here Comes The Bus® school bus tracking mobile app serves over 300 school districts across North America and has more than two million users. In April 2020, we made the strategic decision to transition out of the Automotive Vehicle Finance business and thus it is excluded from our core businesses. We believe our combined installed base represents a significant recurring revenue opportunity as we strive to deliver additional over-the-top services and data monetization opportunities to subscribers in collaboration with our customers and partners.

Growth Strategy – Capitalize on $30B Total Available Market

Over the past several years, we have been focused on growing our subscription-based business to deliver a higher level of recurring and predictable revenue stream. We intend to grow this core business and expand into new markets and geographic regions in the years ahead. Our business operates at the nexus of several large market opportunities, such as the fleet, transportation and logistics, supply chain and connected-vehicle ecosystems, which includes tracking monitoring and recovering high-value vehicles, equipment, cargo and other vital assets in the markets around the world. We believe these market opportunities constitute a total addressable market (“TAM”) of approximately $30 billion. In order to capitalize on this TAM, our growth strategy includes the following key elements:

 

Drive Ongoing Transformation to SaaS Business Model. We are relentlessly pursuing our goal to grow our software and subscription services business. To accomplish this goal, our team is focused on continual innovation across our proprietary software stack.  We believe that by leveraging our existing brand

presence and customer base in four market verticals, including transportation & logistics, industrial equipment, government, and connected car, we can drive growth in our SaaS applications. And as we steadily grow our base of SaaS subscribers, we’ll continue to migrate to a pure-play solution provider of subscription services by combining our broad portfolio of SaaS applications, proprietary cloud-based platform and programmable telematics systems devices.

 

Increase Subscriber Base to Drive Recurring Revenue. A key driver of our recurring revenue is the number of customers who are on a subscription basis for our software solutions and services. The more subscribers we are able to secure, the higher our recurring revenue will be. We currently have approximately 1.0 million subscribers within our core businesses, with significant opportunities to expand that number by transitioning existing customers to our software solutions and securing new customers with our expanded SaaS offerings.

 

Capitalize on Transition from 3G to 4G. There is currently a major technology shift taking place in which wireless carriers are required to gradually shut down older generation networks, known as the 3G network sunset. Since the transportation industry relies on near-constant network connectivity with the back office for their day-to-day operations, the 3G network sunset will be a significant challenge as fleets will need to replace equipment to ensure they can continue operating safely and efficiently. This transition has presented a significant growth opportunity for CalAmp as we assist our customers in making this transition to newer 4G LTE networks and equipment prior to the mandated 3G shut-down dates for carriers. We believe this transition could provide sustained demand for our solutions and services well into fiscal 2022.

 

Launch New Innovative Software Solutions in the Emerging Connected Vehicle Market Worldwide. We have established a highly recognizable brand as well as strong and unique relationships with insurance companies, rental car agencies, regional and global transportation and logistics providers, and heavy equipment original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). We continue to develop innovative telematics applications for the connected vehicle market such as our award-winning Here Comes the Bus and iOn™ Suite of advanced tracking software applications.

 

Expand in Key Verticals and Target Geographies. We are leveraging our existing customer relationships, international subscribers and recent acquisitions to further expand into global markets including Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific. Our global expansion strategy is focused on countries with anticipated demand for our full stack of SaaS applications and services, cloud platform and telematics devices.

 

Expand Presence in Industrial IoT. We believe that our current distribution footprint covers a significant portion of the global industrial IoT market due to our strong relationships with large enterprise accounts such as Caterpillar. We intend to leverage our core competencies of working with these global enterprises while expanding our presence with other industrial equipment OEMs.

Extended Business Network

Because our connected IoT ecosystem is constantly tracking, monitoring and reporting business-critical information from mobile assets, drivers and cargo, our customers can run their business operations more efficiently. We also make it easy for our customers to purchase our end-to-end connected fleet and supply chain solutions through a SaaS subscription-based model, which results in greater customer engagement and long-term enterprise relationships, while driving incremental recurring revenue opportunities. 

Today we sell into numerous market verticals including automotive, insurance, transportation and logistics, government, K-12 and industrial & construction equipment in the United States, Latin America, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. We also serve parents, students and school administrators in more than 300 school districts across North America with our award-winning Here Comes The Bus mobile app that can be found in both the App Store and the Google Play Store. Our brands and technological leadership have driven the adoption of our connectivity solutions with small- to mid-sized customers as well as large global enterprises and numerous government organizations and municipalities. With our international network of subsidiaries and industry partnerships, we bring connected intelligence to businesses to help drive better decision-making, maximize productivity and increase revenue.

We listen to our customers’ needs both to understand their pain points and to help improve their day-to-day businesses. We strive to find new ways to use our connected intelligence to digitize their businesses, streamline their operations and empower them with new insights to make their business environments safer today and in the future.. 

Enterprise Customers - We sell our products and services directly to large global enterprises and industrial OEM customers. These customers require very different selling approaches and support requirements. Our sales, product development and support teams are organized to address these different requirements. Additionally, certain customers often have unique technical requirements and manufacturing processes, and may request specific product configurations, feature sets and designs. Sales to large enterprise customers often involve complex program management and long sales cycles, and require close cooperation between sales, operations and engineering personnel. As such, we have developed teams of key account managers and business development managers to serve the unique requirements of these customers. Some of the global enterprises we serve include Amazon, Caterpillar, Hertz, Omnitracs, Toyota, Trimble and Volkswagen Financial, among others.

Telematics Service Providers (“TSPs”) and Channel Partners - We market and sell our products and services to small- and mid-sized companies through our well-established sales team and Channel Partner Program that includes various Telematics Service Providers, Value-Added Resellers (“VARs”), systems integrators and mobile network operators. These partners integrate our telematics solutions with their value-added applications to deliver purpose-built solutions that are sold through to restaurant, farming, water & waste management and construction industries, among others. 

Strategic Partners – We have developed third party strategic partnerships to serve a wide range of customers from enterprises to small businesses.  CalAmp has established strategic partnerships with supply chain management service providers including CargoSense, Overhaul, Cryoport and RoviTracker. We also partner with leading global insurance companies to provide stolen vehicle recovery services and help insurance carriers better manage risk, minimize replacement losses and improve customer service. We also partner with mobile network operators including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and Telefonica, among others, to provide connectivity solutions for our customers.

Our global direct sales organization consists of teams of field salespeople, key account managers and business development managers, who work closely with applications specialists and other internal sales support personnel based primarily across our U.S. locations. We have organized our field sales personnel, together with internal sales, into teams within each business group based on their specialized knowledge and expertise relating to specific application and service areas, geographies and customer groups. These sales teams are closely aligned with their respective product management, engineering and operations organizations. 

We expect that our reputation for providing innovative, high-quality solutions will continue to play a significant role in our growth and success, and that high customer satisfaction will continue to fuel referrals of our brand to new customers. Through our trademarked name – CalAmp – we have built a highly recognizable brand in the global enterprise, fleet management and supply chain market verticals. We also provide the award-winning Here Comes The Bus application to the K-12 educational market as well as the award-winning application called Bus Guardian, that provides contact-tracing to protect students and drivers on school buses, which has been especially critical during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Bus Guardian provides regular school bus ridership data, pick-up and drop-off times, as well as other associated statistics reflecting both drivers and students. This data is extremely important particularly in cases where buses serve multiple schools. Bus Guardian helps school administers monitor and manage sanitation assessment and application procedures across their fleets with its unique hygiene verification features. This real-time data has helped to keep staff, students and families across the country safe amidst the pandemic.

Recent Developments

COVID-19

In December 2019, a strain of coronavirus entitled COVID-19 emerged in China and spread to other countries including to the United States. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the spread of COVID-19 as a pandemic. The full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic still remains uncertain given the diversity of rules and regulations in the U.S. and other countries in which we operate. The pandemic has resulted in travel restrictions, prohibitions of non-essential activities, disruption and shutdown of businesses and greater uncertainty in global financial markets. Through fiscal 2021, our revenues were negatively impacted by COVID-19 as various small-to-medium customers postponed their capital expenditure due to the pandemic and related macro-economic uncertainties. The pandemic has also created certain global supply imbalances resulting in supply shortages in certain components that we use. It is difficult to predict the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact our future business or operating results, which is highly dependent on uncertain future developments, including the severity of the continuing pandemic and the actions taken or to be taken by governments and private businesses in relation to its containment. Because our business is dependent on telematics product sales, device installations and related subscription-based services, the ultimate effect of the outbreak may not be fully reflected in our operating results until future periods.

We have considered all known and reasonably available information that existed as of February 28, 2021, in making accounting judgments, estimates and disclosures. We are monitoring the potential effects of the health care related and economic conditions resulting from COVID-19 including (but not limited to) supply chain disruptions, decreases in customer demand for our products and services, potential longer-term effects on our customer and distribution channels particularly in the U.S. and relevant end markets as well as other developments. If the impacts from these contingencies result in longer-term closures of businesses and economic recessionary conditions, we may recognize additional material asset impairments, charges for uncollectible accounts receivable in future periods and additional restructuring charges.

Wind Down Plan and Subsequent Sale of LoJack U.S. SVR Operations

On December 16, 2020, our Board of Directors approved a plan for management to commence with the wind down of the LoJack U.S. SVR operations. This business unit has historically provided stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) products operating on a radio frequency allocated by the FCC for domestic automotive dealerships. These products and related services have been provided predominately as a hardware-based offering that no longer aligns with our core strategy. Subsequent to the public announcement of this plan, we received inbound inquiries from certain parties interested in acquiring the business.

On January 22, 2021, we received a formal proposal from Spireon Holdings, L.P. (“Spireon”) to acquire the LoJack U.S. and Canadian SVR (“LoJack North America”) business for a purchase price of $8.0 million. Effective March 15, 2021, the Company and Spireon entered into a purchase agreement pursuant to which we sold certain assets and transferred certain liabilities of the LoJack North America business to Spireon.

Since the LoJack North America operations were deemed to be a business that met the held for sale criteria under ASC 205-20-45, Presentation of Financial Statements – Discontinued Operations, management has presented the operations for this business as Discontinued Operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended February 28/29, 2021, 2020, and 2019, respectively. See Note 2, Discontinued Operations, to the accompanying consolidated financial statements for additional information on this subsequent event.

We will continue supporting our existing customers and law enforcement partners to allow sufficient time for an orderly transition out of the business. Additionally, we will continue operating and investing in our LoJack international business which operates in a subscription-based business model and is well aligned with our core SaaS strategy.

Manufacturing and Operations 

While the vast majority of our products are designed in the U.S., we currently outsource a substantial portion of our manufacturing to certain contract manufacturers. Our electronic devices, components and made-to-order assemblies used in our system solutions can be obtained from these manufacturers, although a few components are obtained from sole source suppliers. Although we do not have any long-term purchase contracts, we have executed product supply agreements with these manufacturers, which provide for certain product quality requirements. We are not vertically integrated, which provides us with flexibility and an ability to adapt to changes in the market, product supply and pricing while keeping our fixed costs low. Our relationships with our manufacturers are critical to new product introduction and the success of our business. We have strong relationships with our manufacturers, helping us to meet supply and support requirements stipulated by our customers. In fiscal year 2019, we commenced a plan to streamline our global operations including further outsourcing of our manufacturing functions to increase supplier diversification and reduce operating expenses. We now have full manufacturing capabilities in Taiwan, Malaysia and Mexico in addition to some limited production in China and Hong Kong. Furthermore, our production and distribution facility in Oxnard California was closed, and we are now utilizing our outsourced partner in Fort Worth, Texas for certain US distribution.   

We focus on driving alignment of our product roadmaps with all our manufacturers and determining what we can do collectively to reduce costs across the supply chain. Our operations team based in the U.S. coordinates with our manufacturers’ engineers and quality control personnel to develop the requisite manufacturing processes, quality checks and testing as well as a general oversight of ongoing manufacturing activities. We believe this model has allowed us to deliver high quality and innovative products in a timely manner while enabling us to minimize costs, manage inventory risk and maintain flexibility.

We are certified to the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9001: 2008 Quality management systems standard.

Research and Development

We compete in markets characterized by industry disruption, rapid technological change, evolving industry standards and new product features. We believe that our future success depends upon our ability to continue to develop innovative new products and solutions as well as enhancements to our existing products and solutions with advanced

functionality and ease of use to drive customer demand and to further enhance our global brand and drive recurring revenue. We will continue to focus our research and development resources primarily on developing telematics products, services and software solutions for fleet management, heavy equipment, stolen vehicle recovery, consumer aftermarket telematics, trailer & asset tracking, transportation & logistics, and industrial monitoring & controls applications. We have developed a technology platform that can be leveraged across many of our vertical markets, applications and geographic regions. This includes a cloud-based telematics application enablement platform and end-user software applications, cellular and satellite communications network-based asset tracking units, as well as 3G and 4G LTE broadband router products primarily for mobile applications. In addition, our development resources have been allocated to rationalizing existing product lines, reducing product costs, and improving performance through product redesign efforts.

Our research and development expenses from continuing operations in fiscal years ended February 28/29, 2021, 2020 and 2019, were $25.8 million, $27.0 million and $25.5 million, respectively. During this three-year period, our research and development expenses have ranged between 8% and 9% of annual consolidated revenues.

Sales and Marketing

We market and sell our solution and services through our global direct sales organization, Channel Partner Program and sales representatives as well as our websites and digital presence. Our global direct sales organization consists of teams of field salespeople, key account managers and business development managers, who work closely with solutions and applications specialists and other internal sales support personnel based primarily at our U.S. locations. We have organized our field sales personnel, together with internal sales and field support personnel, into teams within each business group based on their specialized knowledge and expertise relating to specific solutions and service areas, geographies and customer groups. These sales teams are closely aligned with their respective solutions management, engineering and operations organizations.

We sell our solutions and services to large global enterprises, small- to mid-sized companies, channel accounts and distributors as well as industrial OEM customers. These categories of customers require very different selling approaches and support requirements, and we have organized our sales teams to address these different requirements. Additionally, certain customers often have unique technical requirements and manufacturing processes, and may request specific system configurations, feature sets and designs. Sales to large enterprise customers often involve complex program management and long sales cycles, and require close cooperation between sales, operations and engineering personnel. As such, we have developed teams of key account managers and business development managers to serve the unique requirements of these customers.

We also actively sell our products in certain markets through independent sales representatives and distributors. We have entered into agreements with substantially all of our distributors. In some cases, we have granted representatives and distributors exclusive authorization to sell certain products in a specific geographic area. These agreements generally have terms of one year, which automatically renew on an annual basis, and are generally terminable by either party for convenience following a specified notice period.

 

We expect that our reputation for providing innovative and high-quality solutions will continue to play a significant role in our growth and success, and that high customer satisfaction will continue to fuel referrals of our brand to new customers. Through our trademarked name – CalAmp – we have built a highly recognizable brand in the global enterprise asset tracking and fleet management market verticals.

 

We will continue our investment in sales and marketing programs that further build brand awareness, drive deeper customer engagement and foster long-term relationships with our customers. Our marketing programs are now focused on supporting multi-channel product launches in new geographic markets.

 

Additionally, we are focused on maximizing our efficiency and the reach of our marketing spend by investing in public relations, social media and digital marketing programs. These programs are developed to educate our potential customers and other industry influencers to fuel active engagement with our products and services. Our activities around public relations, thought leadership, social media and digital marketing will be aligned with our customary product launches, media campaigns and presence at tradeshows and high exposure venues such as Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles and other high-profile industry events, although recently, most of these events have been cancelled amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Our revenues from continuing operations derived from customers in the U.S. represented 65%, 69% and 69% of consolidated revenues in fiscal years ended February 28/29, 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Competition

Our markets are highly competitive. We face competition from small to large public and private competitors some of which have greater financial, distribution, marketing and other resources as well as greater economies of scale than we do. We believe the principal competitive factors impacting the market for our products and services are global scale, innovation, reputation, customer service, product quality, functionality and reliability, time-to-market, responsiveness and price. We believe that we compete favorably in all of these areas. Our continued success in our vertical markets will depend in part upon our ability to continue to innovate, design quality products and deploy solutions at competitive prices and with superior support services to our customers.

Some of the more established competitors for telematics systems and related connected products include Danlaw, Mobile Devices, Orbcomm, Quake Global, Queclink, Sierra Wireless, Spireon, Teltonika, Inseego, and Xirgo. Additionally, the market for Software and Subscription Services is also highly competitive and includes well-established companies such as Geotab, Samsara, Octo Telematics, Omnitracs, OnStar, Trimble, Verizon Connect and Zonar Systems as well as numerous smaller players.

BACKLOG

 

As of February 28, 2021, our remaining contract performance obligations for software & subscription services were approximately $145 million as compared to $129 million as of February 29, 2020. The majority of our growth in contract performance obligations was driven by new customer acquisitions within the government and municipalities as well as connected car end markets. We expect to recognize approximately 50% of our remaining contract performance obligations as of February 28, 2021 in fiscal 2022.

 

Total backlog for our hardware products as of February 28, 2021 and February 29, 2020 was $65.9 million and $30.9 million, respectively. Substantially all of the backlog at February 28, 2021 is expected to be shipped in fiscal 2022. Our backlog for hardware products increased year-over-year as we experienced significant supply shortages which were primarily attributable to global supply imbalances caused by the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Intellectual property is an important aspect of our business, and we seek protection for our intellectual property as appropriate. We rely upon a combination of patent, trade secret, and trademark laws and contractual restrictions, such as confidentiality agreements and licenses, to establish and protect our proprietary rights. In addition, we often rely on inbound licenses of intellectual property for use in our business.

We own and utilize the tradenames “CalAmp” and “LoJack” as well as the related logos and trademarks on all of our products and solutions. We believe that having distinctive marks that are registered and readily identifiable is an important factor in identifying our brand. We own over 200 active trademark applications and registrations throughout the world, with approximately 30 pending and registered trademarks in the U.S.

In addition to the foregoing protections, we generally control access to and the use of our proprietary and other confidential information through the use of internal and external controls, including contractual protections with employees, manufacturers, and others. We will continue to file and prosecute patent applications when appropriate to attempt to protect our rights in our proprietary technologies.

As of February 28, 2021, we had almost 300 patents worldwide. In addition to our awarded patents, we have approximately 80 patent applications in process. Although a number of these trademarks, copyrights, and patents relate to software and products that are significant to our business and operations, we do not believe we are dependent on a single trademark, copyright or patent.

GOVERNMENTAL REGULATION

We are subject to a variety of U.S. and foreign laws and regulations in connection with our operations, including those governing discharges of pollutants into the air and water, the management and disposal of hazardous substances and the clean-up of contaminated sites, and close oversight of our product’s material compliance including adherence to relevant EPA regulations under the Toxic Substances Control Act. While we believe that we are currently in material compliance with these regulatory requirements, the requirements may change or new requirements may be imposed that could require significant unanticipated expenditures by us.

We have established environmental management systems and continually update our environmental policies and standard operating procedures for our operations worldwide. We believe that our operations are in material compliance with applicable environmental laws, regulations and permits. We budget for operating and capital costs on an ongoing basis to comply with environmental laws.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY

We believe responsible and sustainable business practices support our long-term success. As a company, we are deeply committed to protecting and supporting our people, our environment, and our communities. That commitment is reflected through sustainability-focused initiatives as well as day-to-day activities, including our adoption of sustainability-focused policies and procedures, our publicly recognized focus on fostering an inclusive workplace, our constant drive toward more efficient use of materials and energy, our careful and active management of our supply chain, our products which help reduce carbon footprints and enhance road safety, and our impactful, globally integrated ethics and compliance program.

ITEM 1A.

RISK FACTORS

We operate in a rapidly changing environment that involves a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control. The following list describes several risk factors, which are applicable to our business and speaks as of the date of this document. These and other risks could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows and the trading price of our common stock. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties that we are unaware of, or that we currently believe are not material, may also become important factors that affect us.

Summary of Risk Factors

Our business is subject to a number of risks of which you should be aware before making a decision to invest in our common stock. Among others, and including those described in this section “Item 1A. Risk Factors”, these risks include:

 

Our accelerated supply chain diversification program, component shortages and uncertainty in international trade relations with China may adversely impact us and have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Because some of our components, assemblies and electronics manufacturing services are purchased from sole source suppliers or require long lead times, our business is subject to unexpected interruptions, which may adversely affect our ability to bring products to market, damage our reputation and adversely affect our results of operations.

 

Because we depend on a few significant customers for a substantial portion of our revenues and we generally do not have long-term contracts with customers, the loss or significant decline or slowdown in purchases from any of these customers could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

Because the markets in which we compete are highly competitive and some of our competitors have greater resources than us, we cannot be certain that our products and services will continue to be accepted in the marketplace or capture increased market share.

 

We have been subject to breaches of our information technology systems, and are at risk of future attacks, which could damage our reputation, vendor and customer relationships, and our customers’ access to our services.

 

If demand for our products and services fluctuates rapidly and unpredictably, it may be difficult to manage our business efficiently, which may result in reduced gross margins and profitability.

14


Table of Contents

 

 

Any acquisitions we pursue could disrupt our business and harm our financial condition and results of operations.

 

Our global operations and continued international expansion expose us to risks and challenges associated with conducting business internationally.

 

Some of our products are subject to mandatory regulatory approvals in the U.S. and other countries that are subject to change, which could make compliance costly and unpredictable.

 

Ongoing changes to U.S. tax, tariff and import/export regulations may have a negative effect on global economic conditions, financial markets and our business.

 

We may not be able to adequately protect our intellectual property, and our competitors may be able to offer similar products and services that would harm our competitive position.

 

We rely on access to third-party patents and intellectual property, and our future results could be materially and adversely affected if we are unable to secure such access in the future.

 

We depend to some extent upon wireless networks owned and controlled by others, unproven business models, and emerging wireless carrier models to deliver existing services and to grow.

 

We may not have the ability to raise the funds necessary to settle conversions of the convertible notes in cash, repay the convertible notes at maturity or repurchase the convertible notes upon a fundamental change, and our future debt may contain limitations on our ability to pay cash upon conversion or repurchase of the convertible notes.

 

The trading price of shares of our common stock may be affected by many factors and the price of shares of our common stock could decline.

Risks Related to Our Business Operations and Financial Condition

Our accelerated supply chain diversification program, component shortages and uncertainty in international trade relations with China may adversely impact us and have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

We accelerated our supply chain diversification program to transition our manufacturing to tier one global contract manufacturers with facilities outside of China. This program was initiated against the backdrop of the escalation of trade tensions between the U.S. and China. These factors attributed to various supply disruptions, including component shortages, in the third and fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Although we are taking steps to address these matters, the related operational challenges and supply chain disruptions may persist for some time.

The COVID-19 pandemic could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The outbreak has spread globally, resulting in the implementation of significant governmental measures, including lockdowns, closures, quarantines and travel bans, each intended to control the spread of the virus. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe global disruptions.

Additionally, we and other companies, are taking precautions, such as requiring employees to work remotely and imposing travel restrictions. These restrictions, and future prevention and mitigation measures, are likely to have an adverse impact on global economic conditions and consumer confidence and spending, which could materially adversely affect the supply and demand for our products and solutions. Uncertainties regarding the economic impact of COVID-19 are likely to result in sustained market turmoil, which could also negatively impact our business, financial condition and cash flows. This pandemic could negatively affect our ability to sell-through our backlog. Our ability to manage normal commercial relationships with our suppliers, contract manufacturers, and customers may suffer. Our customers could shift purchases to lower-priced or other perceived value offerings during the pandemic-caused economic downturn as a result of various factors, including workforce reductions, reduced access to credit, and changes in federal economic policy. In particular, customers may become more conservative in response to these conditions and seek to reduce their purchases and inventories. Our results of operations depend upon, among other

15

things, our ability to maintain and increase sales volume with our existing customers, our ability to attract new customers, and the financial condition of our customers. Decreases in demand for our products and solutions without a corresponding decrease in costs would put downward pressure on our margins and would negatively impact our financial results.

Governmental organizations, such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local governments, have recommended and/or imposed increased community-based interventions, including event cancellations, social distancing measures, and restrictions on gatherings.

Through fiscal 2021, our revenues were negatively impacted by COVID-19 as various small-to-medium customers postponed their capital expenditure due to the pandemic and related macro-economic uncertainties. The pandemic has also created certain global supply imbalances resulting in supply shortages in certain components that we use. It is difficult to predict the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact our future business or operating results. The extent of such impact depends on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted in the short or long term, including new information which may emerge concerning the scope, severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as any worsening of the pandemic, the effect of mutating strains and whether additional outbreaks of the pandemic will continue to occur, actions to contain the pandemic’s spread or treat its impact, timing of the availability of vaccines, and their distribution, acceptance and efficacy, and governmental, business and individual personal actions taken in response to the pandemic among others. Some of these actions and related impacts may be trends that continue in the future even after the pandemic no longer poses a significant public health risk.

To the extent that COVID-19 adversely affects our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows, it may also heighten many of the risk factors described in this “Risk Factors” section.

Because some of our components, assemblies and electronics manufacturing services are purchased from sole source suppliers or require long lead times, our business is subject to unexpected interruptions, which may adversely affect our ability to bring products to market, damage our reputation and adversely affect our results of operations.

We operate a primarily outsourced manufacturing business model that utilizes contract manufacturers. We depend on a limited number of contract manufacturers to allocate sufficient manufacturing capacity to meet our needs, to produce products of acceptable quality at acceptable yields, and to deliver those products to us on a timely basis. Some of our key components are complex to manufacture and have long lead times. In the event of a reduction or interruption of supply, or degradation in quality, it could take up to six months to begin receiving adequate supplies from alternative suppliers, if any. As a result, product shipments could be delayed and revenues and profitability could suffer. In such circumstances, we may be unable to meet our customer demand and may fail to meet our contractual obligations. This could result in the payment of significant damages by us to our customers, a decline in net revenue and a loss of market share as our customers could choose to purchase competing products, all of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. Any substantial disruption in our contract manufacturers’ supply as a result of a pandemic, natural disaster, trade wars, political unrest, economic instability, equipment failure or other cause, could materially harm our business, customer relationships and results of operations.

 

Because we depend on a few significant customers for a substantial portion of our revenues and we generally do not have long-term contracts with customers, the loss or significant decline or slowdown in purchases from of any of these customers could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

Our revenues depend on a small number of significant customers and some of them represent more than 10% of our total revenues in fiscal year 2021, 2020 and 2019 (see Note 4 to our consolidated financial statements). They are also expected to represent a substantial portion of our revenues in the near future. As a result, the loss of any one of these customers, or decline or slowdown in purchases from any of these customers, could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, because service revenue depends either partially or entirely on the usage levels of data transmission by our customers and end users, the decline or slowdown in the growth of usage patterns of these customers, which has and could continue to occur at any time and with or without a reduction in the number of our subscriber basis could have a material adverse effect on our business,

financial condition and results of operations. We generally do not have long-term contracts with our customers. As a result, our agreements with our customers generally do not provide us with any assurance of future sales. These customers can cease purchasing products and services from us at any time without penalty, are free to purchase products and services from our competitors, may expose us to competitive price pressure on each order and are not required to make minimum purchases. Any of these actions taken by our customers could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Because the markets in which we compete are highly competitive and some of our competitors have greater resources than us, we cannot be certain that our products and services will continue to be accepted in the marketplace or capture increased market share.

The markets for our products and services are intensely competitive and characterized by rapid technological change, evolving standards, short product life cycles, and price erosion. Given the highly competitive environment in which we operate, we cannot be sure that any competitive advantages currently enjoyed by our products and services will be sufficient to establish and sustain our products and services in the markets we serve. Any increase in price or other competition could result in erosion of our market share, to the extent we have obtained market share, and could have a negative impact on our financial condition and results of operations. We cannot provide assurance that we will have the financial resources, technical expertise or marketing and support capabilities to compete successfully. We expect competition to intensify in the future with the introduction of new technologies and market entrants and with the possible consolidation of competitors.

Information about our competitors is included in Part I, Item 1 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K under the heading “COMPETITION”.

If demand for our products and services fluctuates rapidly and unpredictably, it may be difficult to manage our business efficiently, which may result in reduced gross margins and profitability.

Our cost structure is based in part on our expectations for future demand. Many costs, particularly those relating to capital equipment and manufacturing overhead, are largely fixed. Rapid and unpredictable shifts in demand for our products and services may make it difficult to plan production capacity and business operations efficiently. If demand is significantly below expectations, we may be unable to rapidly reduce these fixed costs, which can diminish gross margins and cause losses. A sudden downturn may also leave us with excess inventory, which may be rendered obsolete if products and services evolve during the downturn and demand shifts to newer products and services. Our ability to reduce costs and expenses may be further constrained because we must continue to invest in research and development to maintain our competitive position and to maintain service and support for our existing customer base. Conversely, in the event of a sudden upturn, we may incur significant costs to rapidly expedite delivery of components, procure scarce components and outsource additional manufacturing processes. These costs could reduce our gross margins and overall profitability. Any of these results could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

We may be unable to successfully implement a disposition or wind-down of certain business activities that no longer fit our strategic plan.

On March 15, 2021, we entered into an agreement to sell certain assets related to our LoJack U.S. SVR and LoJack Canada businesses to Spireon Holdings, L.P. for a purchase price of $8.0 million. In addition, we may engage in future dispositions or wind-downs of certain business. Key risks associated with exiting a business include:

 

our ability to price a sale transaction appropriately and otherwise negotiate acceptable terms;

 

our ability to identify and implement key customer, technology systems, and other transition actions to avoid or minimize negative effects on retained business activities;

 

our ability to assess and manage any loss of synergies that the exited business activity had with our retained business activities;

 

our ability to replace legacy earnings from the exited business or activity with new revenues; and

17


Table of Contents

 

 

 

our ability to manage capital, liquidity, and other challenges that may arise if an exit results in significant legacy cash expenditures or financial loss.

Any acquisitions we pursue could disrupt our business and harm our financial condition and results of operations.

As part of our business strategy, we continually review acquisition opportunities that we believe would be advantageous or complementary to the development of our business. In fiscal year 2019, we acquired Tracker and in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, we acquired LoJack Mexico and Synovia, and we may acquire additional businesses, assets, or technologies in the future. If we make any acquisitions, we could take any or all of the following actions, any one of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations or share price:

 

use a substantial portion of our available cash;

 

require a significant devotion of management’s time and resources in the pursuit or consummation of any acquisition;

 

incur substantial debt, which may not be available to us on favorable terms and may adversely affect our liquidity;

 

issue equity or equity-based securities that would dilute existing stockholders’ ownership percentage;

 

assume contingent liabilities; and

 

take substantial charges in connection with acquired assets.

Acquisitions also entail numerous other risks, including, without limitation: difficulties in assimilating acquired operations, products, technologies and personnel; unanticipated costs; diversion of management’s attention from existing operations; risks of entering markets in which we have limited or no prior experience; potential loss of key employees from either our existing business or the acquired organization; and a negative effect on our existing relationships with suppliers and customers. Acquisitions may result in substantial accounting charges for restructuring and other expenses, amortization of purchased technology and intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense, any of which could materially and adversely affect our operating results. We may not be able to realize the anticipated benefits of or successfully integrate with our existing business the businesses, products, technologies or personnel that we acquire, and our failure to do so could harm our business and operating results. Our industry is being affected by the trend toward consolidation and the creation of strategic relationships. If we are unable to successfully adapt to this rapidly changing environment, we could suffer a reduction in the volume of business with our customers and suppliers, or we could lose customers or suppliers entirely, which could materially and adversely affect our financial condition and operating results.

We have been subject to breaches of our information technology systems, which could damage our reputation, vendor, and customer relationships, and our customers’ access to our services.

 

Our presence in the IoT industry with offerings of telematics products and services, including vehicle telematics, could also increase our exposure to potential costs and expenses and reputational harm in the event of cyber-attacks impacting these products or services. Our business operations require that we use and store sensitive data, including intellectual property, proprietary business information and personally identifiable information, in our secure data centers and on our networks. We face a number of threats to our data centers and networks in the form of unauthorized access, security breaches and other system disruptions. It is critical to our business strategy that our infrastructure remains secure and is perceived by customers and partners to be secure. Despite our security measures, our information technology systems has been and will continue to be vulnerable to attacks by hackers or other disruptive problems.

 

We experience cyber-attacks and other security incidents of varying degrees from time to time, and we incur significant costs in protecting against or remediating such incidents. For example, we detected and interrupted a ransomware attack on a portion of our network in February 2021, which led to the theft of company data and notifications to affected third parties, and experienced a second attempt to hack our network in March 2021. In response, we retained outside experts to advise on the incidents and to make recommendations for security improvements. While we have not experienced any material loss or expense relating to these cyber-attacks or other

18


Table of Contents

 

information security breaches, there can be no assurance that we will not suffer additional attacks or incur more serious financial consequences or expense in the future.

 

In addition, we are subject to a variety of laws and regulations in the United States and abroad relating to cybersecurity and data protection. As a result, affected users or government authorities could initiate legal or regulatory actions against us in connection with any actual or perceived security breaches or improper access to or disclosure of data, which has occurred in the past and which could cause us to incur significant expense and liability or result in orders or consent decrees forcing us to modify our business practices.

 

Any security breach may compromise information used or stored on our networks and may result in significant data losses or theft of our, our customers’ or our business partners’ intellectual property, proprietary business information or personally identifiable information. A cybersecurity breach could negatively affect our reputation by adversely affecting the market’s perception of the security or reliability of our products or services. In addition, a cyber-attack could result in other negative consequences, including remediation costs, disruption of internal operations, increased cybersecurity protection costs, lost revenues or litigation, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

Repurposing of satellite spectrum by adjacent operators of L-band spectrum for terrestrial services could interfere with our GPS IoT products and services.

In 2011, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) granted Ligado Networks (then known as Lightsquared) (“Ligado”) a waiver to convert its L-band satellite spectrum to terrestrial use, including a 10 MHz band close to the spectrum that we use for all of our Global Positioning System (“GPS”) products and services. That waiver was subsequently suspended in 2012 due to concerns about potential interference to GPS operations. Ligado sought another waiver in 2015, that it then amended in 2018, to modify its L-band mobile satellite service network with a terrestrial-only proposal designed to address GPS industry-wide concerns. In April 2020, the FCC granted Ligado’s waiver request. We oppose this waiver grant out of concern for the interference that we believe Ligado’s proposed operations would cause to our IoT GPS devices. Ligado’s operations pursuant to the waiver would result in terrestrial use of L-band spectrum, and such operations may interfere with, and harmfully affect, the performance of the Global Navigation Satellite System (“GNSS”) receivers in our IoT GPS devices that operate in the 1559-1610MHz band, which is adjacent to, and within range of, the L-band downlink allocation for GPS operations. Ligado’s L-band terrestrial operations could impact our operations and impose costs on us to retrofit or replace affected GNSS receivers, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.

Our business is subject to many factors that could cause our quarterly or annual operating results to fluctuate and our stock price to be volatile.

Our quarterly and annual operating results have fluctuated in the past and may fluctuate significantly in the future due to a variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control. A majority of our product orders are shipped in the final month of the quarter and a significant amount in the last two weeks of the quarter. Some of the other factors that could affect our quarterly or annual operating results include:

 

the timing and amount, or cancellation or rescheduling, of orders for our products or services;

 

our ability to develop, introduce, ship and support new products, services and enhancements, and manage product and services transitions;

 

announcements of new product and service introductions and reductions in the price of products and services offered by our competitors;

 

our ability to achieve cost reductions;

 

our ability to obtain sufficient supplies of sole or limited source components for our products;

 

our ability to achieve and maintain production volumes and quality levels for our products;

 

our ability to maintain the volume of products and services sold and the mix of distribution channels through which they are sold;

 

the loss of any one of our major customers or a significant reduction in orders from those customers;

19


Table of Contents

 

 

 

increased competition, particularly from larger, better capitalized competitors;

 

fluctuations in demand for our products and services; and

 

changes in telecommunications and wireless market conditions specifically and economic conditions generally, including as a result of a pandemic or other catastrophic event.

Due in part to factors such as the timing of product release dates, purchase orders and product availability, significant volume shipments of products could occur close to the end of a fiscal quarter. Failure to ship products by the end of a quarter may adversely affect operating results in such quarter. In the future, our customers may delay delivery schedules or cancel their orders without notice. Due to these and other factors, our quarterly revenue, expenses and results of operations could vary significantly in the future, and period-to-period comparisons should not be relied upon as indications of future performance.

If we do not meet product and services introduction deadlines or if we fail to predict carrier and end user customer preferences among the many evolving wireless industry standards, our business could be adversely affected.

In the past, we have experienced design and manufacturing difficulties that have delayed the development, introduction or marketing of new products, services and enhancements and which caused us to incur unexpected expenses and lost revenue. In addition, some of our existing customers have conditioned their future purchases of our products and services on the addition of new features. In the past, we have experienced delays in introducing some new product features. Furthermore, in order to compete in some markets, we will have to develop different versions of existing products and services that comply with diverse, new or varying governmental regulations and evolving wireless industry standards in each market. In our industry, it is critical to our success that we accurately anticipate evolving wireless technology standards and that our products and services comply with these standards in relevant respects. We are currently focused on engineering and manufacturing products and services that comply with several different wireless standards. Any failure of our products and services to comply with any one of these or future applicable standards could prevent or delay their introduction and require costly and time-consuming engineering changes. Additionally, if an insufficient number of wireless operators or subscribers adopt the standards to which we engineer our products and services, then sales of our new products and services designed to those standards could be materially harmed. Our inability to develop new products, services, product features on a timely basis, or the failure of new products, services or features to align with evolving wireless standards and achieve market acceptance, could adversely affect our business.

If our introduction of a DaaS subscription model is not embraced by enterprise customers, our business could be adversely affected.

We recently introduced an innovative Device-as-a-Service (“DaaS”) subscription business model for certain products that enables enterprise customers to leverage more of our research and development investments and full portfolio of connected car software services to lower their business costs and drive new revenue streams from subscription services. If our enterprise customers do not broadly embrace this business model, it could adversely affect our business, financial condition, or results of operations.

 

Disruptions in global credit and financial markets could materially and adversely affect our business and results of operations.

There is significant uncertainty about the stability of global credit and financial markets. Credit market dislocations could cause interest rates and the cost of borrowing to rise or reduce the availability of credit, which could negatively affect customer demand for our products and services if they responded to such credit market dislocations by suspending, delaying or reducing their capital expenditures. Moreover, since we currently generate more than 25% of our revenues outside the U.S., fluctuations in foreign currencies can have an impact on demand for our products and services for which the sales are generally denominated in U.S. dollars.

We may be subject to product liability, warranty and recall claims that may increase the costs of doing business and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We are subject to a risk of product liability or warranty claims if our products or services actually or allegedly fail to perform as expected or the use of our products or services results, or is alleged to result, in bodily injury and/or

20


Table of Contents

 

property damage. While we maintain what we believe to be reasonable limits of insurance coverage to appropriately respond to such liability exposures, large product liability claims, if made, could exceed our insurance coverage limits and insurance may not continue to be available on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. There can be no assurance that we will not incur significant costs to defend these claims or that we will not experience any product liability losses in the future. In addition, if any of our designed products are, or are alleged to be, defective, we may be required to participate in recalls and exchanges of such products. The future cost associated with providing product warranties and/or bearing the cost of repair or replacement of our products could exceed our historical experience and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Our inability to identify the origin of conflict minerals in our products could have a material adverse effect our business.

Many of our product lines include tantalum, tungsten, tin, gold and other materials that are considered to be “conflict minerals” under the SEC’s rules. Those rules require public reporting companies to provide disclosure regarding the use of conflict minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries in the manufacture of products. Those rules, or similar rules that may be adopted in other jurisdictions, could adversely affect our costs, the availability of minerals used in our products and our relationships with customers and suppliers.

We may experience significant disruptions in our operations resulting from our enterprise resource planning system initiatives.

We depend on our information technology systems for the efficient functioning of our global business, including accounting, billing, data storage, purchasing and inventory management. In order to integrate and enhance our global operations, we initiated the phased implementation of an ERP system across our global operating locations to support our operations. The implementation of this ERP system required, and will continue to require, the investment of human and financial resources. We have incurred, and expect to incur, additional expenses as we continue to implement, enhance and develop our ERP system. As a result of our ERP initiatives, we may encounter difficulties in operating our business, which could disrupt our operations, including our ability to timely ship and track customer orders, determine inventory requirements, manage our supply chain, manage customer billing and adequately service our customers. If we experience significant disruptions resulting from our ERP initiatives, our business and operations could be disrupted, including our ability to report accurate and timely financial results. Accordingly, such events may disrupt or reduce the efficiency of our global operations and have a material adverse effect on our operating results and cash flows.

Because we currently sell, and we intend to grow the sales of, certain of our products and services in countries other than the U.S., we are subject to different regulatory policies. We may not be able to develop products and services that comply with the standards of different countries, which could result in our inability to sell our products and services and further, we may be subject to political, economic, and other conditions affecting such countries, which could result in reduced sales of our products and services and which could adversely affect our business.

If our sales are to grow in the longer term, we believe we must grow our international business. Many countries require communications equipment used in their country to comply with unique regulations, including safety regulations, radio frequency allocation schemes and standards. If we cannot develop products that work with different standards, we will be unable to sell our products and services in those locations. If compliance proves to be more expensive or time consuming than we anticipate, our business would be adversely affected. Some countries have not completed their radio frequency allocation process, and therefore, we do not know the standards with which we would be required to comply. Furthermore, standards and regulatory requirements are subject to change. If we fail to anticipate or comply with these new standards, our business and results of operations will be adversely affected.

Sales to customers from continuing operations outside the U.S. accounted for 35.0%, 31.0% and 30.6% of our total sales for fiscal years ended February 28/29, 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Assuming that we continue to sell our products and services to foreign customers, which is our expectation, we will be subject to the political, economic and other conditions affecting countries or jurisdictions other than the U.S., including those in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia. Any interruption or curtailment of trade between the countries in which we operate and our present trading partners, changes in exchange rates, significant shift in U.S. trade policy toward these countries, or significant downturn in the political, economic or financial condition of these countries, could cause demand for and sales of our products and services to decrease, or subject us to increased regulation including future import and export restrictions, any of which could adversely affect our business.

21

Additionally, a substantial portion of our products, components and subassemblies are currently procured from foreign suppliers located primarily in Hong Kong, mainland China, Malaysia and other Pacific Rim countries. Any significant shift in U.S. trade policy toward these countries or a significant downturn in the political, economic or financial condition of these countries could cause disruption of our supply chain or otherwise disrupt operations, which could adversely affect our business.

Risks Related to Regulatory and Legal Matters

Our global operations and continued international expansion expose us to risks and challenges associated with conducting business internationally.

We face several risks inherent in conducting business internationally, including compliance with international and U.S. laws and regulations that apply to our international operations. These laws and regulations include data privacy requirements, labor relations laws, tax laws, competition regulations, import and trade restrictions, economic sanctions, export requirements, U.S. laws such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010 and other local laws that prohibit payments to governmental officials or certain payments or remunerations to customers. Given the high level of complexity of these laws there is a risk that some provisions may be breached by us, for example through fraudulent or negligent behavior of individual employees, our failure to comply with certain formal documentation requirements, or otherwise. Violations of these laws and regulations could result in fines, criminal sanctions against us, our officers or our employees, requirements to obtain export licenses, cessation of business activities in sanctioned countries, implementation of compliance programs, or prohibitions on the conduct of our business. Any such violations could include prohibitions on our ability to offer our products or services in one or more countries and could materially damage our reputation, our brand, our international expansion efforts, ability to attract and retain employees, business or operating results.

 

Additionally, following a national referendum and enactment of legislation by the government of the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom formally withdrew from the European Union and ratified a trade and cooperation agreement governing its future relationship with the European Union. The agreement, which is being applied provisionally from January 1, 2021 until it is ratified by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, addresses trade, economic arrangements, law enforcement, judicial cooperation and a governance framework including procedures for dispute resolution, among other things. Because the agreement merely sets forth a framework in many respects and will require complex additional bilateral negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union as both parties continue to work on the rules for implementation, significant political and economic uncertainty remains about how the precise terms of the relationship between the parties will differ from the terms before withdrawal. These developments, or the perception that any related developments could occur, have had and may continue to have a material adverse effect on global economic conditions and financial markets, and may significantly reduce global market liquidity, restrict the ability of key market participants to operate in certain financial markets or restrict our access to capital. Given our recent efforts to expand our business throughout Europe, these developments could affect our relationships with our existing and future customers, suppliers and employees. Any of these factors could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations and reduce the price of our common stock.

Some of our products are subject to mandatory regulatory approvals in the U.S. and other countries that are subject to change, which could make compliance costly and unpredictable.

Some of our products are subject to certain mandatory regulatory approvals in the U.S. and other countries in which it operates. In the U.S., the FCC regulates many aspects of communication devices, including radiation of electromagnetic energy, biological safety and rules for devices to be connected to the telecommunication networks. Although we have obtained the required FCC and various country approvals for all products we currently sell, there can be no assurance that such approvals can be obtained for future products on a timely basis, or at all. In addition, such regulatory requirements may change or we may not in the future be able to obtain all necessary approvals from countries other than the U.S. in which we currently sell our products or in which we may sell its products in the future

Ongoing changes to U.S. tax, tariff and import/export regulations may have a negative effect on global economic conditions, financial markets and our business.

 

We import certain products and components from suppliers in China. In 2018, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (the “USTR”) enacted tariffs on imports into the U.S. from China, resulting in ongoing trade tensions. Although some of the products and components we import are affected by the tariffs, at this time, we do not expect these tariffs to have a material impact on our business, financial condition or results of operations. However, it is possible that further tariffs may be imposed on imports of our products, or that our business will be impacted by retaliatory trade measures taken by China or other countries in response to existing or future tariffs, causing us to raise prices or make changes to our operations, any of which could have a negative impact on our revenue or operating results.

 

Evolving regulation and changes in applicable laws relating to data privacy and the Internet may increase our expenditures related to compliance efforts or otherwise limit the solutions we can offer, which may harm our business and adversely affect our financial condition.

 

As Internet commerce continues to evolve, increased regulation by federal, state or foreign agencies becomes more likely. We are particularly sensitive to these risks because the Internet is a critical component of our SaaS and DaaS business model. In addition, taxation of services provided over the Internet or other charges imposed by government agencies or by private organizations for accessing the Internet may be imposed. Any regulation imposing greater fees for Internet use or restricting information exchange over the Internet could result in a decline in the use of the Internet and the viability of Internet-based services, which could harm our business.

 

Our products and solutions enable us to collect, manage and store a wide range of data related to fleet management such as vehicle location and fuel usage, speed and mileage and, in the case of our field service application, includes customer information, job data, schedule, invoice and other information. A valuable component of our solutions is our ability to analyze this data to present the user with actionable business intelligence. We obtain our data from a variety of sources, including our customers and third-party providers. The U.S. and various state governments (including the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018) have adopted or proposed limitations on the collection, distribution and use of personal information. Several foreign jurisdictions, including the European Union and the United Kingdom, have adopted legislation (including directives or regulations) that increase or change the requirements governing data collection and storage in these jurisdictions. Proposed or new legislation and regulations could also significantly affect our business. There currently are a number of proposals pending before federal, state, and foreign legislative and regulatory bodies. In addition, the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) took effect in May 2018. The GDPR includes operational requirements for companies that receive or process personal data of residents of the European Union. For example, we may be required to obtain consent and/or offer new controls to existing and new users in Europe before processing data. In addition, the GDPR includes significant penalties for non-compliance.

Violations of these laws, or allegations of such violations, could subject us to litigation, regulatory investigations, cash and non-cash penalties for noncompliance, disrupt our operations, involve significant management distraction and result in a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations. Moreover, if future laws and regulations limit our customers’ ability to use and share this data, or our ability to store, process and share data with our customers over the Internet, demand for our solutions could decrease, our costs could increase, and our results of operations and financial condition could be harmed.

 

Risks Related to Our Intellectual Property

We may not be able to adequately protect our intellectual property, and our competitors may be able to offer similar products and services that would harm our competitive position.

Our ability to succeed in wireless data communications markets may depend, in large part, upon our intellectual property for some of our wireless technologies. We currently rely primarily on patents, trademark and trade secret laws, confidentiality procedures and contractual provisions to establish and protect our intellectual property. However, these mechanisms provide us with only limited protection. We currently hold almost 300 patents worldwide. As part of our confidentiality procedures, we enter into non-disclosure and invention assignment agreements with all employees, including officers, managers and engineers. Despite these precautions, third parties could copy or otherwise obtain and use our technology without authorization, or develop similar technology independently. Furthermore, effective protection of intellectual property rights is unavailable or limited in some foreign countries. The protection of our intellectual property rights may not provide us with any legal remedy should our competitors

23


Table of Contents

 

independently develop similar technology, duplicate our products and services, or design around any intellectual property rights we hold.

We rely on access to third-party patents and intellectual property, and our future results could be materially and adversely affected if we are unable to secure such access in the future.

Many of our products and services are designed to include third-party intellectual property, and in the future, we may need to seek or renew licenses relating to such intellectual property. Although we believe that, based on past experience and industry practice, such licenses generally can be obtained on reasonable terms, there is no assurance that the necessary licenses would be available on acceptable terms or at all. Some licenses we obtain may be nonexclusive and, therefore, our competitors may have access to the same technology licensed to us. If we fail to obtain a required license or are unable to design around a patent where we do not hold a license, we may be unable to sell some of our hardware solutions and services, and there can be no assurance that we would be able to design and incorporate alternative technologies, without a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations.

Our competitors have or may obtain patents that could restrict our ability to offer our products, software and services, or subject us to additional costs, which could impede our ability to offer our products, software and services and otherwise adversely affect us. In addition, third parties may claim that we infringe their intellectual property and proprietary rights and may prevent us from manufacturing and selling some of our products and services and subject us to litigation over intellectual property rights or other commercial issues.

Several of our competitors have obtained and can be expected to obtain patents that cover products, software and services directly or indirectly related to those offered by us. There can be no assurance that we are aware of all existing patents held by our competitors or other third parties containing claims that may pose a risk of our infringement on such claims by our products, software and services. In addition, patent applications in the U.S. may be confidential until a patent is issued and, accordingly, we cannot evaluate the extent to which our hardware solutions, software and services may infringe on future patent rights held by others.

Even with technology that we develop independently, a third party may claim that we are using inventions claimed by their patents and may initiate litigation to stop us from engaging in our normal operations and activities, such as engineering and development and the sale of any of our products, software and services. Furthermore, because of rapid technological changes in the mobile resource management (“MRM”) and IoT marketplaces, current extensive patent coverage, and the rapid issuance of new patents, it is possible that certain components of our products, software, services, and business methods may unknowingly infringe the patents or other intellectual property rights of third parties. From time to time, we have been notified that we may be infringing such rights.

In the highly competitive and technology-dependent telecommunications field in particular, litigation over intellectual property rights is a significant business risk, and some third parties (referred to as non-practicing, or patent-assertion, entities) are pursuing a litigation strategy with the goal of monetizing otherwise unutilized intellectual property portfolios via licensing arrangements entered into under threat of continued litigation. These lawsuits relate to the validity, enforceability, and infringement of patents or proprietary rights of third parties. We may have to defend ourselves against allegations that we violated patents or proprietary rights of third parties.

Regardless of merit, responding to such litigation may be costly, unpredictable, time - consuming, and often involves complex legal, scientific, and factual questions, and could divert the attention of our management and technical personnel. In certain cases, we may consider the desirability of entering into such licensing agreements or arrangements, although no assurance can be given that these licenses can be obtained on acceptable terms or that litigation will not occur. If we are found to be infringing any intellectual property rights, we could lose our right to develop, manufacture, or market products and services, product and services launches could be delayed, or we could be required to pay substantial monetary damages or royalties to license proprietary rights from third parties. If a temporary or permanent injunction is granted by a court prohibiting us from marketing or selling certain products, software and services, or a successful claim of infringement against us requires us to pay royalties to a third party, our financial condition and operating results could be materially and adversely affected, regardless of whether we can develop non-infringing technology.

Risks Related to Third Parties

We depend to some extent upon wireless networks owned and controlled by others, unproven business models, and emerging wireless carrier models to deliver existing services and to grow.

Our telematics products and software services depend upon Internet-based systems that are proprietary to our business. These applications, which are hosted at independent data centers and are connected via access points to cellular networks, are used by our customers and by us to configure and communicate with wireless devices for purposes of determining location, speed or other conditions of vehicles and other mobile or fixed assets, and to deliver configuration code or executable commands to the devices. If we do not have continued access to sufficient capacity on reliable networks, we may be unable to deliver services and our sales could decrease. Our ability to grow and achieve profitability partly depends on our ability to buy sufficient capacity on the networks of wireless carriers and on the reliability and security of their systems. Some of our wireless services are delivered using airtime purchased from third parties. We depend on these third parties to provide uninterrupted service free from errors or defects and would not be able to satisfy our customers’ needs if such third parties failed to provide the required capacity or needed level of service. If these Internet-based systems failed or were otherwise compromised in some way, it could adversely affect the proper functioning of the wireless tracking and monitoring devices that we sell, and could result in damages to us as a result of the temporary or permanent inability of our customers to wirelessly communicate with these devices. In addition, our expenses would increase, and profitability could be materially and adversely affected if wireless carriers were to significantly increase the prices of their services. Our existing agreements with the wireless carriers generally have one- to three-year terms. Some of these wireless carriers are, or could become, our competitors.

 

We rely upon Amazon Web Services to operate certain aspects of our service, and any disruption of or interference with our use of the Amazon Web Services operation would impact our operations and our business would be materially and adversely impacted.

Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) provides a distributed computing infrastructure platform for business operations, or what is commonly referred to as a “cloud” computing service. We have architected our software and computer systems so as to utilize data processing, storage capabilities, and other services provided by AWS. Certain of our SaaS platforms and applications are hosted by AWS. Given this, along with the fact that we cannot easily switch our AWS operations to another cloud service provider, any disruption of or interference with our use of AWS would impact our operations and our business would be materially and adversely impacted.

Risks Related to Our Convertible Notes and Indebtedness

We may not have the ability to raise the funds necessary to settle conversions of the convertible notes in cash, repay the convertible notes at maturity or repurchase the convertible notes upon a fundamental change, and our future debt may contain limitations on our ability to pay cash upon conversion or repurchase of the convertible notes.

On May 15, 2020, we repaid the remaining principal balance of $27.6 million of our 1.625% senior unsecured notes issued in May 2015. Our $230.0 million aggregate principal amount of 2.00% convertible senior unsecured notes due in 2025 (“2025 Convertible Notes”) remain outstanding.

Holders of the 2025 Convertible Notes will have the right to require us to repurchase all or a portion of their convertible notes upon the occurrence of a fundamental change at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the convertible notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any. The 2025 Convertible Notes will be convertible into cash, shares of our common stock or a combination of cash and shares of common stock, at our election, based on an initial conversion rate of 32.5256 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the convertible notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of $30.7450 per share of common stock, subject to customary adjustments. Holders may convert their notes at their option upon the occurrence of certain events, as defined in the applicable indenture.

Upon conversion of the 2025 Convertible Notes, unless we elect to deliver solely shares of our common stock to settle such conversion (other than paying cash in lieu of delivering any fractional share), we will be required to make cash payments in respect of the convertible notes being converted. However, we may not have enough available cash or be able to obtain financing at the time we are required to make repurchases of the Notes surrendered therefor or pay cash with respect to the convertible notes being converted or at their maturity.

25


Table of Contents

 

In addition, our ability to repurchase or to pay cash upon conversions or at maturity of the Notes may be limited by law, regulatory authority or agreements governing our future indebtedness. Our failure to repurchase the Notes at a time when the repurchase is required by the applicable indenture or to pay any cash payable on future conversions of the convertible notes as required by the applicable indenture would constitute a default under the applicable indenture. A fundamental change under such indenture or a default under the indenture could also lead to a default under agreements governing our future indebtedness. If the repayment of the related indebtedness were to be accelerated after any applicable notice or grace periods, we may not have sufficient funds to repay the indebtedness and repurchase the convertible notes or make cash payments upon conversions thereof.

The conditional conversion feature of the convertible notes, if triggered, may adversely affect our financial condition and operating results.

In the event the conditional conversion feature of the Notes is triggered, holders of the Notes will be entitled to convert the Notes at any time during specified periods at their option. If one or more holders elect to convert their convertible notes, unless we elect to satisfy our conversion obligation by delivering solely shares of our common stock (other than paying cash in lieu of delivering any fractional share), we would be required to settle a portion or all of our conversion obligation through the payment of cash, which could adversely affect our liquidity. In addition, even if holders do not elect to convert their convertible notes, we could be required under applicable accounting rules to reclassify all or a portion of the outstanding principal of the Notes as a current rather than long-term liability, which would result in a material reduction of our net working capital.

The accounting method for convertible debt securities that may be settled in cash, such as the convertible notes, could have a material adverse effect on our reported financial results.

Accounting Standards Codification Subtopic 470-20, Debt with Conversion and Other Options (“ASC 470-20”), requires an entity to separately account for the liability and equity components of convertible debt instruments (such as the convertible notes) that may be settled entirely or partially in cash upon conversion in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt interest rate. Accordingly, the equity component of the convertible notes is required to be included in the additional paid-in capital section of stockholders’ equity on our consolidated balance sheet, and the value of the equity component is treated as original issue discount for purposes of accounting for the debt component of the convertible notes. As a result, we are required to recognize a greater amount of non-cash interest expense in our consolidated income statements in the current and future periods presented as a result of the amortization of the discounted carrying value of the convertible notes to their principal amount over the term of the convertible notes. We report lower net income (or greater net losses) in our consolidated financial results because ASC 470-20 requires interest to include both the current period’s amortization of the original issue discount and the instrument’s non-convertible interest rate. This could adversely affect our reported or future consolidated financial results, the trading price of our common stock and the trading price of the convertible notes.

In addition, under certain circumstances, in calculating earnings per share, convertible debt instruments (such as the convertible notes) that may be settled entirely or partly in cash are currently accounted for utilizing a method in which the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the convertible notes, if any, are not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share except to the extent that the conversion value of the convertible notes exceeds their principal amount. Under this method, diluted earnings per share is calculated as if the number of shares of common stock that would be necessary to settle such excess, if we elected to settle such excess in shares, were issued. We cannot be sure that the accounting standards in the future will continue to permit the use of this method. If we are unable to use this method in accounting for the shares issuable upon conversion of the convertible notes, if any, then our diluted consolidated earnings per share could be adversely affected.

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40), which removes certain separation models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock that require the separation of a convertible debt instrument into a debt component and an equity or derivative component. The standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted. At this time, we are evaluating the impact of the adoption of this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.

The capped call, convertible note hedge and warrant transactions may adversely affect the value of our notes and our common stock.

In connection with the sale of the 2025 Convertible Notes, we entered into privately negotiated capped call transactions with option counterparties. The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution to our common stock upon any conversion of the notes and/or offset any potential cash payments we are required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap. In connection with establishing any hedges of the capped call transactions, the option counterparties or their respective affiliates may enter into various derivative transactions with respect to our common stock and/or purchase shares of our common stock. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of our common stock or the notes at that time. In addition, the option counterparties and/or their respective affiliates may modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to our common stock and/or purchasing or selling our common stock or other securities of ours in secondary market transactions prior to the maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so during any observation period related to a conversion of notes). This activity could also cause or avoid an increase or a decrease in the market price of our common stock or the notes, which could affect your ability to convert the notes and, to the extent the activity occurs following conversion or during any observation period related to a conversion of notes, it could affect the amount and value of the consideration that investors will receive upon conversion of the notes.

The effect, if any, of these activities, including the direction or magnitude, on the market price of our common stock will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions, and cannot be ascertained at this time. Any of these activities could, however, adversely affect the market price of our common stock and the trading price of the convertible notes.

We are subject to counterparty risk with respect to the convertible note hedge transactions.

The option counterparties are financial institutions or affiliates of financial institutions, and we will be subject to the risk that one or more option counterparties may default under the capped call and/or convertible note hedge transactions. Our exposure to the credit risk of the option counterparties will not be secured by any collateral. If any of the option counterparties becomes subject to insolvency proceedings, we will become an unsecured creditor in those proceedings with a claim equal to our exposure at the time under those transactions. Our exposure will depend on many factors but, generally, the increase in our exposure will be correlated to the increase in the market price of our common stock and in the volatility of the market price of our common stock. In addition, upon a default by an option counterparty, we may suffer adverse tax consequences and more dilution than we currently anticipate with respect to our common stock. We can provide no assurances as to the financial stability or viability of any of the option counterparties.

We are subject to risks associated with debt financing.

 

Our revolving credit facility contains, among other things, certain negative and affirmative covenants including financial covenants that require us to maintain a minimum level of earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges (Adjusted EBITDA) to interest ratio, a minimum senior indebtedness ratio and a total indebtedness coverage ratio, all measured on a quarterly basis. While we have not previously breached and are not currently in breach of these or any other covenants contained in our credit agreement, there can be no guarantee that we will not breach these covenants in the future.

 

Additionally, our ability to comply with these covenants may be affected by events beyond our control, including the COVID-19 pandemic. A breach of any of these covenants could result in a default under the credit agreement and related credit documents, which could cause all of the outstanding indebtedness under our revolving credit facility to become immediately due and payable. These covenants could also limit our ability to seek capital through the incurrence of new indebtedness or, if we are unable to meet our obligations, require us to repay any outstanding amounts with sources of capital we may otherwise use to fund our business.

We may incur substantially more debt or take other actions that could diminish our ability to make payments on the convertible notes.

We and our subsidiaries may be able to incur substantial additional debt in the future, subject to the restrictions contained in our future debt instruments, some of which may be secured debt. We are not restricted under the terms of the indenture governing the convertible notes from incurring additional debt, securing existing or future debt, recapitalizing our debt or taking a number of other actions that are not limited by the terms of the indentures governing the convertible notes that could have the effect of diminishing our ability to make payments on the convertible notes when due.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock and the Securities Market

The trading price of shares of our common stock may be affected by many factors and the price of shares of our common stock could decline.

As a publicly traded company, the trading price of our common stock has fluctuated significantly in the past. The future trading price of our common stock may be volatile and could be subject to wide price fluctuations in response to such factors, including:

 

actual or anticipated fluctuations in revenues or operating results;

 

the effects of the recent global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic;

 

failure to meet securities analysts’ or investors’ expectations of performance;

 

changes in key management personnel;

 

announcements of technological innovations or new products by us or our competitors;

 

developments in or disputes regarding patents and proprietary rights; 

 

proposed and completed acquisitions by us or our competitors; 

 

the mix of products and services sold; 

 

the timing, placement and fulfillment of significant orders; 

 

product and service pricing and discounts; 

 

acts of war or terrorism; and 

 

general economic conditions.

Future issuances of shares of our common stock could dilute the ownership interests of our stockholders.

Any issuance of equity securities could dilute the interests of our stockholders and could substantially decrease the trading price of our common stock. We may issue equity securities in the future for a number of reasons, including to finance our operations and business strategy (including in connection with acquisitions, strategic collaborations or other transactions), to adjust our ratio of debt to equity, to satisfy our obligations upon the exercise of outstanding options or for other reasons. In May 2015 and July 2018, we issued the Notes and, to the extent we issue common stock upon conversion of the convertible notes, that conversion would dilute the ownership interests of our stockholders.

 

General Risk Factors

Anti-takeover defenses in our charter and under Delaware law could prevent us from being acquired or limit the price that investors might be willing to pay for our common stock in an acquisition.

Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law prohibits a Delaware corporation from engaging in any business combination with any interested stockholder for a period of three years from the time the person became an interested stockholder, unless specific conditions are met. In addition, we have in place various protections which would make it difficult for a company or investor to buy our business without the approval of our Board of Directors,

including authorized but undesignated preferred stock and provisions requiring advance notice of board nominations and other actions to be taken at stockholder meetings. All of the foregoing could hinder, delay or prevent a change in control and could limit the price that investors might be willing to pay in the future for shares of our common stock.

 

Our amended and restated bylaws provide that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware and the federal district courts of the United States of America will be the exclusive forums for substantially all disputes between us and our stockholders, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers, or employees.

 

Our amended and restated bylaws provide that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware is the exclusive forum for:

 

 

any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf;

 

 

any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by, or other wrongdoing by, any of our directors, officers, employees or agents to us or our stockholders;

 

 

any action asserting a claim against us arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, our restated certificate of incorporation, or our amended and restated bylaws;

 

 

any action to interpret, apply, enforce or determine the validity of our restated certificate of incorporation or our amended and restated bylaws; and

 

 

any action asserting a claim against us that is governed by the internal affairs doctrine;

 

provided, that with respect to any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf to enforce any liability or duty created by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or the rules and regulations thereunder, the exclusive forum will be the federal district courts of the United States of America. Our restated and amended bylaws further provides that the federal district courts of the United States of America will be the exclusive forum for resolving any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

 

These exclusive forum provisions may limit a stockholder’s ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum that it finds favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers, or other employees, which may discourage lawsuits against us and our directors, officers and other employees.

 

If securities or industry analysts issue an adverse or misleading opinion regarding our business or publish unfavorable research about our business, our stock price and trading volume could decline.

 

The trading market for our common stock depends in part on the research and reports that industry or securities analysts publish about us or our business. If one or more of the analysts who cover us ceases coverage of our Company or fails to publish reports on us regularly, we could lose visibility in the financial markets, which in turn could cause our stock price or trading volume to decline. Moreover, if any of the analysts who cover us downgrade our stock or issue an adverse or misleading opinion regarding us, our business model or our stock performance, or if our operating results fail to meet the expectations of the investor community, our stock price could decline.

Our success depends on the attraction and retention of senior management and technical personnel with relevant expertise.

As a competitor in a highly technical market, we depend heavily upon the efforts of our existing senior management and technical teams. The loss of the services of one or more members of these teams could slow product and services development and commercialization objectives. Due to the specialized nature of our products and services, we also depend upon our ability to attract and retain qualified technical personnel with substantial industry knowledge and expertise. Competition for qualified personnel is intense, and we may not be able to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel necessary for the development of our business.

If we fail to maintain proper and effective internal controls, our ability to produce accurate and timely financial statements could be impaired, which could harm our operating results, our ability to operate our business and investors’ views of us.

We are subject to the rules and regulations of the SEC, including those rules and regulations mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires public companies to include in their annual report a statement of management’s responsibilities for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, together with an assessment of the effectiveness of those internal controls. Section 404 also requires the independent auditors of certain public companies to attest to, and report on, this management assessment. Ensuring that we have adequate internal financial and accounting controls and procedures in place so that we can produce accurate financial statements on a timely basis is a costly and time-consuming effort that will need to be evaluated frequently. Our failure to maintain the effectiveness of our internal controls in accordance with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act could have a material adverse effect on our business. We could lose investor confidence in the accuracy and completeness of our financial reports, which could have an adverse effect on the price of our common stock. In addition, if our efforts to comply with new or changed laws, regulations, and standards differ from the activities intended by regulatory or governing bodies due to ambiguities related to practice, regulatory authorities may initiate legal proceedings against us and our business may be harmed.

Lack of expected dividends may make our stock less attractive as an investment.

We intend to retain all future earnings for use in the development of our business. We do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. In certain cases, stocks that pay regular dividends command higher market trading prices, and so our stock price may be lower as a result of our dividend policy.

 

We may be subject to legal proceedings that could adversely affect our business.

 

We may be subject to legal claims or regulatory matters involving stockholder, consumer, antitrust, intellectual property infringement, product liability and other issues. Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, including increases in demands for attention on our management team, and unfavorable rulings could occur. An unfavorable ruling could include money damages. If an unfavorable ruling were to occur, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations for the period in which the ruling occurred or future periods. See also Item 3 – Legal Proceedings in Part I of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Our stock price has been highly volatile in the past and could be highly volatile in the future.

 

The market price of our stock can be highly volatile due to the risks and uncertainties described in this Annual Report, as well as other factors, including substantial volatility in quarterly revenues and earnings due to comments by securities analysts and our failure to meet market expectations.

 

Over the fiscal year ended February 28, 2021, the price of our common stock as reported on The Nasdaq Global Select Market ranged from a high of $11.98 to a low of $3.70. The stock market has from time to time experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that were unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. In the past, companies that have experienced volatility have sometimes subsequently become the subject of securities class action litigation. If litigation were instituted on this basis, it could result in substantial costs and a diversion of management’s attention and resources.

We may not be able to generate sufficient future taxable income to utilize our net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. In addition, our ability to utilize our federal net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards may be limited under Sections 382 and 383 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”).

 

As discussed in Note 14, as of February 28, 2021, we maintained a valuation allowance with respect to certain of our deferred tax assets relating primarily to net operating losses and tax credits in U.S. and certain non-U.S. jurisdictions that we believe are not likely to be realized. We considered positive and negative evidence, including three years of cumulative losses considering forecasts of future profitability as of February 28, 2021, in assessing our ability to realize our domestic net deferred tax assets.

Also, as of February 28, 2021, we had net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $50.4 million and $48.4 million for federal and state tax purposes, respectively. The federal net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards are subject to various limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. The ability to utilize our NOL carryforwards to reduce taxable income in future years could become subject to significant limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code if we undergo an ownership change.

 

The limitations apply if a corporation undergoes an “ownership change,” which is generally defined as a greater than fifty (50) percentage point change (by value) in its equity ownership by stockholders who own directly or indirectly, 5% or more of our common stock, over a three (3)-year period. Future changes in our stock ownership, which may be outside of our control, may trigger an ownership change and, consequently, Section 382 and 383 limitations. Similar provisions of state tax law may also apply to limit our use of accumulated state tax attributes. As a result, if we earn net taxable income, our ability to use our pre-change net operating loss carryforwards and other tax attributes to offset such taxable income may be subject to limitations, which could potentially result in increased future income tax liability to us. We continue to monitor stockholders who own directly or indirectly, 5% or more of our common stock to determine if we have experienced an ownership change pursuant to Section 382.
