NOTE 1: NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007. The Company’s mission is to catalyze the global shift to a sustainable transportation system. Over the past 13 years, the Company has developed a new vehicle platform designed around the needs of everyday drivers. Having approximately one-third the weight and one-third of the footprint of the average car, the Arcimoto platform’s purpose is to bring the joy of ultra-efficient, pure electric driving to the masses. To date, the Company has introduced five vehicle products built on this platform that target specific niches in the vehicle market: our flagship product, the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV®”), for everyday consumer trips; the Deliverator® for last-mile delivery and general fleet utility; the Rapid Responder™ for emergency services and security; the Cameo™ for film, sports and influencers; and the Arcimoto Roadster, an unparalleled pure-electric on-road thrill machine.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

We started retail production in the third quarter of 2019 at one FUV per build day and ramped to two per build day in the first quarter of 2020 before suspending production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We restarted production and resumed deliveries to customers in the third quarter of 2020. As result of the suspension revenues from the first three quarters of 2020 were negatively impacted. Revenues from the fourth quarter of 2020 and subsequent quarters may be negatively impacted based on the length and severity of the pandemic.

 

Further, Arcimoto does not have a history of higher-scale production and may encounter delays or inefficiencies in its sales and manufacturing processes, which may prevent or delay achieving higher-scale production within anticipated timelines. In order to achieve higher-scale production, the Company may need to raise additional capital and there can be no assurance such capital will be available upon reasonable terms, if at all.

 

Additionally, the Company’s business and operations are sensitive to governmental policies on importation and exportation, as well as the availability of vehicle components from suppliers, which themselves may be impacted by pandemics and such, lest we mention the ever-shifting general landscape of governmental policy related to cars and motorcycles.

 

The Company’s industry is characterized by rapid changes in technology and customer demands. The Company’s future success will depend on its ability to adapt to technological advances, its adroit anticipation of customer demands, its development of well-considered new products and services, and the enhancement of its current products and services on a timely and cost-effective basis.

 

Finally, the Company may not have the capital resources necessary to further the development of existing and/or new products.

NOTE 2: GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has experienced recurring operating losses and negative operating cash flows since inception.

 

The Company has not achieved positive earnings and operating cash flows to enable the Company to finance its operations internally. Funding for the business to date has come primarily through the issuance of debt and equity securities. The Company may require additional funding to continue to operate in the normal course of business. The substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern has been alleviated based on management’s belief that current cash reserves will sustain operations in excess of 12 months.

 

Although the Company’s objective is to increase its revenues from the sales of its products sufficient to generate positive operating and cash flow levels, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in this regard. The Company may need to raise additional capital in order to fund its operations, which if needed, it intends to obtain through debt and/or equity offerings. Funds on hand and any follow-on capital, will be used to invest in our business to expand sales and marketing efforts, including Company-owned and franchise-rental operations and the systems to support them, enhance our current product lines by continuing research and development (“R&D”) to enhance and reduce the cost of the FUV and to bring future variants to retail production, continue to build out and optimize our production facility, debt repayment, and fund operations until positive cash flow is achieved. The need for additional capital may be adversely impacted by uncertain market conditions or approval by regulatory bodies.

NOTE 3: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statement presentation. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of September 30, 2020, and the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 and its cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019. Results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2019 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 14, 2020.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost (using the first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”)) or market value. Inventories consist of purchased electric motors, electrical storage and transmission equipment, and component parts.

Total  $6,230,078   $3,734,488 

 

The Company is required to remit partial prepayments for some purchases of its inventories acquired from overseas vendors.

 

Customer Deposits

 

Non-refundable customer deposits are comingled with operating funds. Refundable customer deposits are generally held in a separate deposit account. Revenue is not recognized on customer deposits until the deposit is applied to a non-refundable vehicle order, the vehicle manufacturing process is completed, the vehicle is picked up by or delivered to the customer and the appropriate revenue recognition criteria have been met per our policy below.

 

Net Earnings or Loss per Share

 

The Company’s computation of earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the income (loss) available to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., common stock warrants and common stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

ARCIMOTO, INC.

Loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective periods. Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because all common stock warrants and common stock options outstanding were anti-dilutive.

 

At September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company excluded the outstanding Employee Equity Plans (“EEP”) and other securities summarized below using the Treasury Stock Method, which entitled the holders thereof to ultimately acquire shares of common stock, from its calculation of earnings per share, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company continually assesses any new accounting pronouncements to determine their applicability. When it is determined that a new accounting pronouncement affects the Company’s financial reporting, the Company undertakes a study to determine the consequences of the change to its financial statements and assures that there are proper controls in place to ascertain that the Company’s financial statements properly reflect the change.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”) which supersedes ASC Topic 840, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on their balance sheets for all the leases with terms greater than 12 months. Based on certain criteria, leases will be classified as either financing or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. If a lessee makes this election, it should recognize lease expense for such leases generally on a straight-line basis over the lease term. In November 2019, the FASB delayed the effective date for Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 for private companies and emerging growth companies, and interim periods within those years, with early adoption permitted. In June 2020, the FASB issued ASU No 2020-05 that further delayed the effective date of Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. We will adopt this new standard on January 1, 2022. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, “Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements” that allows entities to apply the provisions of the new standard at the effective date, as opposed to the earliest period presented under the modified retrospective transition approach and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The modified retrospective approach includes a number of optional practical expedients primarily focused on leases that commenced before the effective date of Topic 842, including continuing to account for leases that commence before the effective date in accordance with previous guidance, unless the lease is modified. The Company currently expects that most of its operating lease commitments will be subject to the new standard and recognized as operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets upon its adoption of Topic 842, which will increase the total assets and total liabilities that the Company reports relative to such amounts prior to adoption.

Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payments granted to nonemployees for goods and services. Under the ASU, most of the guidance on such payments to nonemployees would be aligned with the requirements for share-based payments granted to employees. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than an entity’s adoption date of Topic 606. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements. 

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement”. ASU 2018-13 removes certain disclosures, modifies others and introduces additional disclosure requirements for entities. The amendments in ASU 2018-13 for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Amendments on changes in unrealized gains and losses, the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty should be applied prospectively for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the initial fiscal year of adoption. All other amendments should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented upon their effective date. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 9: STOCK-BASED PAYMENTS

 

The Company grants common stock, common stock units, and common stock purchase options and warrants pursuant to the 2018 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan (“2018 Plan”), Amended and Restated 2015 Stock Incentive Plan (“2015 Plan”) and the Second Amended and Restated 2012 Employee Stock Benefit Plan (“2012 Plan”).

 

The Company measures employee stock-based awards at grant-date fair value and recognizes employee compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award. Grants to non-employees are expensed at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instrument is reached and (ii) the date at which the counterparty’s performance is complete. The Company recognizes stock option forfeitures as they occur as there is insufficient historical data to accurately determine future forfeiture rates.

 

Determining the appropriate fair value of stock-based awards requires the input of subjective assumptions, including the fair value of the Company’s common stock, and for stock options, the expected life of the option, and expected stock price volatility. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value its stock option awards. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based awards represent management’s best estimates and involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. As a result, if factors change and management uses different assumptions, stock-based compensation expense could be materially different for future awards.

The Company uses the following inputs when valuing stock-based awards. The expected life of employee stock options was estimated using the “simplified method,” as the Company has insufficient historical information to develop reasonable expectations about future exercise patterns and employment duration for its stock option grants. The simplified method is based on the average of the vesting tranches and the contractual life of each grant. The expected life of awards that vest immediately use the contractual maturity since they are vested when issued. For stock price volatility, the Company uses public company comparables as a basis for its expected volatility to calculate the fair value of option grants. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury notes with a term approximating the expected life of the option at the grant-date.

 

Stock-based compensation, including stock-options, warrants and stock issued for compensation and services is included in the statements of operations as follows:

Consulting Agreement with Common Stock Compensation

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company issued 60,591 common shares for accounts payable with a fair value of $181,329. The shares were valued based on the stock price at the time of the grant when the performance commitment was complete. 32,749 of these shares were for the August 3, annual renewal of an investor relations consulting contract. The terms of the contract call for the issuance of $100,000 worth of common shares issued at each annual renewal based on the market price at the time of the renewal. In addition to the payment in common shares, this consultant receives cash payments of $7,500 per month and payments for additional services as needed. During the three-month periods ending September 30, 2020 and 2019, we paid this investor relations consultant $94,500 and $0 respectively. During the nine-month periods ending September 30, 2020 and 2019, we paid the same investor relations consultant $334,500 and $48,251 respectively, which included significant additional services.

Overview

 

Arcimoto’s mission is to catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. Since our incorporation, we have been engaged primarily in the design, development, manufacture, sale and rental of ultra-efficient three-wheeled electric vehicles. Arcimoto’s fundamental thesis: there is disconnect between the size and efficiency of a car (~4,000 pounds of material that can carry 5 to 7 people) and how people use cars on a daily basis (1 or 2 passengers driving an average of 30 miles a day with cargo). Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007.

 

2019 was a watershed year for the Company, which saw us complete compliance testing required to produce and sell retail vehicles; outfit the scalable, automated, vertically-integrated Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant for retail production; begin retail production of the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV); develop our post-production programs including service, support, recall and supplier quality management; and deliver first vehicles to our first rental franchisee in Key West, Florida. We also expanded our product portfolio offering with the announcement of the Rapid Responder and Deliverator platform concepts targeted at fleet verticals.

 

Retail production began on September 19, 2019. In total, Arcimoto produced 57 model year 2019 vehicles, 46 of which were delivered to customers by December 31, 2019. In the nine months ending September 30, 2020, Arcimoto produced 79 model year 2020 vehicles, and delivered 69 vehicles to customers.

 

In March 2020, Arcimoto launched production pilots of the Rapid Responder and Deliverator product lines. In September 2020, the Company on-roaded its fourth product concept, the Cameo. In November 2020 the Company unveiled its fifth product concept, the Arcimoto Roadster prototype.

 

For a portion of the first three quarters of 2020, Arcimoto’s production operations were suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company restarted limited production and resumed deliveries to customers in the third quarter.

 

The Company’s focus is now squarely on volume production planning, in order to push to sustainable profitability and fulfill the thousands of pre-orders in our queue, as well as to meet the demand generated by our pilot fleet vehicles in the field. The Company is currently preparing an application for the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program to secure the funds necessary to execute our growth strategy.

Platform and Technologies

 

Arcimoto spent its first decade developing and refining eight generations of a new three-wheeled electric vehicle platform: a light-footprint, nimble reverse-trike architecture that features a low center of gravity for stability on the road; dual-motor front-wheel drive for enhanced traction; can be parked three to a space while carrying two large adults comfortably, and is more efficient, by an order of magnitude, than today’s gas-powered cars. The Company has secured 10 utility patents on various constituent technologies and vehicle platform architectures.

 

Products

 

Arcimoto’s vehicle products are based on the Arcimoto Platform. While intended to serve very different market segments, an estimated 90% of the constituent parts are the same between all products currently in production and development.

 

Fun Utility Vehicle® (FUV®

 

Arcimoto’s flagship product is the Fun Utility Vehicle. The FUV delivers a thrilling ride experience, exceptional maneuverability, comfort for two passengers with cargo, highly-efficient parking (three FUVs to a single parking space), and ultra-efficient operation, all at an affordable price. Over time, we anticipate offering the FUV with several option packages to meet the needs of a variety of customers.

 

We led with a consumer product because we are a consumer-first brand. We believe individuals should be able to choose more efficient, more affordable, and lighter-footprint mobility solutions, so that more of us can participate in the transition to a sustainable transportation future.

 

Rapid Responder™

 

The Rapid Responder was announced on February 15, 2019. The pure-electric Rapid Responder is developed on the Arcimoto platform, and designed to perform specialized emergency, security and law enforcement services at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of traditional combustion vehicles. The Rapid Responder aims to deliver first responders to incidents more quickly and affordably than traditional emergency response vehicles.

 

Arcimoto is initially targeting the more than 50,000 fire stations across the United States that use traditional fire engines and large automobiles to respond to calls. Arcimoto also plans to market the Rapid Responder as a solution for campus security and law enforcement applications.

 

Deliverator®

 

Development of the Deliverator was officially announced on March 19, 2019 with the reveal of the first Deliverator prototype.

 

The Deliverator is a pure electric, last-mile delivery solution designed to more quickly, efficiently, and affordably get goods where they need to go. We plan for the Deliverator to be customizable to carry a wide array of products, from pizza, groceries, and cold goods to the 65 billion parcels delivered worldwide annually.

Cameo (™)

 

Arcimoto completed a prototype of the Cameo, an FUV equipped with a rear-facing rear seat and a modified roof built for on-road filming in September 2020. We teased the Cameo prototype in several Arcimoto videos in September 2020 and have used the Cameo to shoot all of our own videos since its on-roading. Development of the Cameo is still in the planning stages.

 

The Cameo is aimed at the film industry, as well as the growing influencer and DIY film market.

 

Arcimoto Roadster

 

The Arcimoto Roadster prototype was first introduced in a video released October 30, 2020. Conceived as a pure platform fun machine, the Roadster offers a lower center of gravity, lower overall weight, and potentially improved aerodynamics due to less frontal surface area. We announced the formal development of the Roadster product, in collaboration with industry partners on November 16, 2020.

 

Management Opportunities, Challenges and Risks

 

Demand, Production and Capital

 

Demand for the Retail Series Arcimoto FUV has continued to increase. As of September 30, 2020, we had 4,566 FUV pre-orders with small refundable deposits or fleet order commitments, representing an increase of 369, or approximately 9%, from the 4,197 pre-orders as of December 31, 2019.

 

In the third quarter of 2019, we completed vehicle testing. Arcimoto tested to verify robustness of its vehicle design, to demonstrate compliance with all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards required for motorcycles, and to demonstrate proper function of voluntarily-added equipment such as the FUV’s 3+3 seat belts. Following completion of compliance testing, we initiated the sales process with our first customers. As sales are completed, pre-order and reservation fees are applied to the purchase price and balances due are collected on delivery.

 

We temporarily suspended production in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though conditions in Lane County have worsened since, we resumed limited production in Q2, implementing significant safety measures. We resumed customer deliveries in the third quarter of 2020. With FUV production currently limited, we are focusing on pilot programs for the Rapid Responder and Deliverator, performing value engineering and planning for volume manufacture to achieve sustainable profitability, applying to the Federal Department of Energy’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program (“ATVMLP”) to finance high volume production (10,000+ units/year), engaging sales efforts focused on fleet deployments, and expanding our service network.

 

The average sales price, including custom upgrade options, for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $22,693, $2,793 or 14% above the starting price. We began taking $5,000 non-refundable reservations for the Fun Utility Vehicle in the first quarter of 2019 with a starting price point of $19,900. We secured non-refundable reservations for the first 100 FUVs in anticipation of initial retail production and delivery. In the last week of September 2019, we delivered the first two FUVs. In total, Arcimoto produced 57 model year 2019 FUVs, 46 of which were delivered to customers by December 31, 2019. An additional 69 model year 2019 and 2020 FUVs were delivered to customers during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

 

We have contracted with a lean design consultant to evaluate Arcimoto’s manufacturing processes and supply chain management in order to drive down costs and begin high-volume production of Arcimoto ultra-efficient electric vehicles.

 

Arcimoto’s test of the Rapid Responder in a pilot program with the City of Eugene, the Eugene-Springfield Fire Department (ESFD), is ongoing. A second vehicle is in development for ESFD with a single seat for more cargo capacity. We are evaluating upfitters and defining the process for installation of non-compliant accessories such as lights and sirens and are planning to release pricing and availability for the Rapid Responder in Q1 2021.

 

We have several ongoing Deliverator pilot programs with individuals, municipalities, and corporate fleets. We are building Deliverators in low volume through the remainder of 2020, delivering to individuals, as well as targeting additional pilot programs, as we tool-up for manufacture and production in 2021.

 

On September 26, 2020, Arcimoto introduced the beta Configurator, a web tool for selecting vehicle options and visualizing the final configured product. We subsequently opened $2,500 non-refundable reservations for production FUVs through the end of the year to pre-order customers in Washington, California, and Oregon, with a new starting price of $17,900, and many more configurable options than our previous offering. Average sales price as configured for the first 50 reservations is $21,762.

Trends in Cash Flow, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenses

 

In 2019, Arcimoto generated cash flow from retail production vehicle sales for the first time. Cash inflow from vehicle sales has been substantially reduced following the suspension of production due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Our capital expenditures for low-volume production are substantially complete. We are bringing the thermo forming of body panels inhouse and ordered approximately $1,749,000 in equipment for this. Approximately $571,000 of this amount has been financed at interest rates ranging from 5.56% to 5.99% and terms of 72 months. We anticipate a savings of $780 per FUV produced with this automation. We are purchasing two additional welding cells at a total cost of $553,791 for welding the upper and lower frames. We anticipate securing low interest debt for these equipment purchases. We anticipate a savings of $390 per FUV produced with this automation. The Company is preparing a significant ATVMLP application to finance high volume production.

  

Operating expenses decreased by approximately 24%, or $2,458,000, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. This decrease was due to manufacturing overhead being allocated to cost of goods sold with the start of production in September 2019. The number of employees increased by approximately 24%, from 94 as of September 30, 2019 to 117 employees as of September 30, 2020. The increased staff was needed to build out all parts of the Company for selling and servicing vehicles.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

For a description of our critical accounting policies and estimates, please refer to the “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in Note 3 to our Financial Statements under Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 14, 2020.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, costs and expenses and related disclosures. We base our estimates on historical experience, as appropriate, and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. Changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from the estimates made by our management. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected. See Note 3 to our Financial Statements under Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Liquidity and Capital Resources 

 

As of September 30, 2020, we had approximately $16,971,000 in cash and cash equivalents, representing an increase in cash and cash equivalents of approximately $11,138,000 from December 31, 2019. In July 2020, we raised approximately $15,366,000 of additional cash. We anticipate that our current sources of liquidity, including cash and cash equivalents, together with our current projections of cash flow from operating activities, will provide us with well in excess of 12 months of liquidity. The amount and timing of funds that we may raise is undetermined and could vary based on a number of factors, including our ongoing liquidity needs, our current capitalization, as well as access to current and future sources of liquidity.

 

Cash Flows from Operating Activities

 

Our cash flows from operating activities are significantly affected by our cash outflows to support the growth of our business in areas such as R&D, sales and marketing and G&A expenses. Our operating cash flows are also affected by our working capital needs to support personnel related expenditures, accounts payable, inventory purchases and other current assets and liabilities.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, cash used in operating activities was approximately $10,949,000, which was primarily the result of our net loss incurred of approximately $11,941,000, a decrease in customer deposits of approximately $233,000, a decrease in warranty accrual of approximately $15,000, and an increase in inventories of approximately $2,495,000 related to materials for our electric vehicles. These increases in cash outflows were partially offset by stock-based compensation of approximately $1,233,000, depreciation expense of approximately $676,000, amortization of capital debt of approximately $311,000, a decrease in accounts receivable of approximately $211,000, a decrease of prepaid inventory of approximately $591,000, an increase in accounts payable of approximately $247,000, a decrease in accrued liabilities of approximately $102,000, and a decrease in other current assets of approximately $315,000.
