FOR THE PERIOD ENDED MARCH 31, 2019

(in thousands except share and per share amounts)

(unaudited)

 

Note 1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

 

This report should be read together with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, including the audited financial statements and footnotes therein.

 

Management believes that the unaudited financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary to fairly state the financial position and results of operations as of March 31, 2019 and for the three-month period then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The results of interim periods may not be indicative of results to be expected for the year.

 

Nature of Business

 

Electro-Sensors, Inc. manufactures and markets a complete line of monitoring and control systems for a variety of industrial machinery. The Company uses leading-edge technology to continuously improve its products and expand the number of applications they can be used in, with the goal of manufacturing the industry-preferred product for every market served. The Company sells these products through an internal sales staff, manufacturers’ representatives, and distributors to a wide variety of industries that use the products in a variety of applications to monitor process machinery operations. The Company markets its products to customers located throughout the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

At contract inception, the Company assesses the goods and services promised to a customer and identifies a performance obligation for each promised good or service that is distinct. We also determine the transaction price for each performance obligation at contract inception. Our contracts, generally in the form of a purchase order, specify the product or service that is promised to the customer. The typical contract life is less than one month and contains a single performance obligation, to provide conforming goods or services to the customer. On some contracts, we have a second performance obligation which typically, is the initialization of the HazardPRO product. For contracts that have multiple performance obligations, we allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation using the relative stand-alone selling price. We generally determine stand-alone selling prices based on the observable stand-alone prices charged to customers. We recognize product revenue at the point in time when control of the product is transferred to the customer, which typically occurs when we ship the products. We recognize service revenue at the point in time when we have provided the service. 


Fair Value Measurements 

 

The carrying value of trade receivables, accounts payable, and other financial working capital items approximates fair value at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, due to the short maturity nature of these instruments.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company records compensation expense for stock options based on the estimated fair value of the options on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton (“BSM”) option pricing model. The Company uses historical data, among other factors, to estimate the expected price volatility, the expected option life, and the expected forfeiture rate. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for the estimated life of the option. 


As of March 31, 2019, there was approximately $23 of unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested stock options. The Company expects to recognize this expense over the next three years.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates, including the underlying assumptions, consist of economic lives of long-lived assets, realizability of trade receivables, valuation of deferred tax assets/liabilities, inventory, investments, contingent earn-out, and stock compensation expense. It is at least reasonably possible that these estimates may change in the near term.

  

Net Loss per Common Share


Basic and diluted net loss per common share is determined by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. For the three-month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the common shares underlying stock options have been excluded from the calculation because their effect would be anti-dilutive. Therefore, the weighted-average shares outstanding used to calculate both basic and diluted loss per common shares are the same.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 options to purchase 332,500 and 307,500 weighted average common shares, respectively, have been excluded from the computations of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding because their effect would be anti-dilutive.

The Company classifies its investments in commercial paper and Treasury Bills as available-for-sale, accounted for at fair value with unrealized gains and losses recognized in accumulated other comprehensive gain on the balance sheet.

 

Prior to January 1, 2018, the Company accounted for equity securities at fair value with unrealized gains and losses recognized in accumulated other comprehensive gain on the balance sheet. Realized gains and losses on equity securities sold or impaired were recognized in non-operating income on the statement of comprehensive income (loss).

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2016-01, which changed how the Company accounted for equity securities. Equity securities are now measured at fair value and starting January 1, 2018 unrealized gains and losses have been recognized in non-operating income. Upon adoption, the Company reclassified $7 of net unrealized losses related to equity securities from accumulated other comprehensive gain to retained earnings.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make decisions based upon estimates, assumptions, and factors it considers relevant to the circumstances. These decisions include the selection of applicable accounting principles and the use of judgment in their application, and affect reported amounts and disclosures. Changes in economic conditions or other business circumstances may affect the outcomes of management’s estimates and assumptions. An in-depth description of our accounting estimates can be found in the interim financial statements included in this report and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. We have not developed new estimates subsequent to those discussed in our Annual Report.

The following paragraphs discuss the Company’s performance for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (in thousands) 

 

Net Sales

 

Net sales for the period ending March 31, 2019 were $2,008, an increase of $292, or 17.0%, from $1,716 in 2018.  This increase was driven by a more than 50% increase in sales from large orders, which we define as orders over $5, as during the period customers moved forward with a number of large projects related to capacity expansion or facility modernization.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 increased $151, or 16.5%, over the same period in 2018Gross margin, as a percentage of net sales, decreased slightly in the first quarter of 2019 to 53.1%, versus 53.4% in the same period in 2018The change in the gross margin percentage was primarily due to a change in product mix.

13


Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses decreased $44, or 3.7%, for the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, and also decreased as a percentage of net sales to 57.4% from 69.7%. 

 

 

Selling and marketing expenses in the first quarter of 2019 increased $50, or 11.5%, from the same period in 2018, but decreased as a percentage of net sales to 24.1% from 25.3%The increase resulted primarily from an increase in internal sales staff compensation due to increased sales and changes in compensation plans.

 

 

General and administrative expenses decreased $60, or 11.3%, for the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, and decreased as a percentage of net sales to 23.5% from 31.0%. The decrease was due primarily to lower legal fees and lower compensation costs due to a decrease in headcount in 2019; partially offset by higher expenses related to computer supplies, software, and testing.

 

 

Research and development expenses decreased $34, or 14.8%, in the first quarter of 2019 from the same period in 2018, and decreased as a percentage of net sales to 9.8% from 13.4%. The decrease was due to higher contract engineering costs related to product enhancements completed in the first quarter of last year.

 

Non-Operating Income

 

Non-operating income, consisting primarily of interest income, increased by $21, or 84.0%, for the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher interest income primarily the result of higher interest rates on Treasury Bills.

 

Loss Before Income Tax Benefit


Loss before income tax benefit was $40 for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease in the first quarter loss of $216, or 84.4%, compared to a loss of $256 for the same period in 2018. The decrease in the loss was the result of higher net sales and lower operating expenses as discussed above.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company's income tax benefit percentage increased to 22.5% for the first quarter of 2019 from 21.1% in the first quarter of 2018.

 

14


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Cash and cash equivalents were $954 at March 31, 2019 and $1,057 at December 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of cash used in operating activities due to increased trade receivables due to the timing of sales during the quarter. 

 

Cash used in operating activities was $112 and $235 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The $123 decrease in cash used was due to the lower net loss in 2019 compared to 2018 and an increase in accounts payable, partially offset by an increase in trade receivables. The lower net loss in 2019, as compared to the prior year net loss, was primarily due to increased revenue and lower operating expenses for the three-month period. The increase in accounts payable is due to timing of payments. The increase in trade receivables is due to the timing of sales and collections on accounts.  

 

Cash generated from investing activities was $10 and $23 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company had net proceeds of Treasury Bills with a maturity date of more than three months of $55 and $27, respectively. In addition, we purchased $45 and $4 of property and equipment during the three months ended of 2019 and 2018, respectively.


Cash used in financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was $1 and $150, respectively. The cash used in 2019 was principal payments on the financing lease on right-to-use assets. The cash used in 2018 was the final payment on the contingent earn-out owed for the technology purchased from Harvest Engineering, Inc. in 2014.


Our ongoing cash requirements will be primarily for capital expenditures, research and development, working capital, and growth initiatives. Management believes that our cash on hand and any cash generated from operations will be sufficient to meet our cash requirements through at least the next 12 months.

 

Future Business Development Activities

 

The Company continues to seek growth opportunities, both internally through the Company’s existing portfolio of products, technologies and markets, as well as externally through technology partnerships or related-product acquisitions. 


Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had no off-balance sheet arrangements or transactions.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Based on an evaluation with the participation of the Company’s management, the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), were effective as of March 31, 2019.


Remediation of Previously Disclosed Material Weakness in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

As previously disclosed in Item 9A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, management identified a material weakness as of that date. The identified material weakness was in connection with our controls over revenue recognition around period cut off. In response to the material weakness, with the oversight of the Audit Committee, we implemented changes to our internal control over financial reporting, which consisted primarily of training our personnel to properly adhere to our existing controls over revenue recognition around period cut off. We have completed documentation of these corrective actions and, based on the evidence obtained in validating the design effectiveness of the implemented control, we have concluded that the previously disclosed material weakness has been remediated as of March 31, 2019. 


Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting


The change described under “Remediation of Previously Disclosed Material Weakness in Internal Control over Financial Reporting” above represents a change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f)) during the three months ended March 31, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Other than this change, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the first quarter of 2019 identified in connection with management’s evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  As noted above, the material weakness in our controls over revenue recognition around period cutoff reported in our annual report at December 31, 2018 has been fully remediated as of March 31, 2019.
