NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2018

 

NOTE 1 - Nature of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Nature of Business:

 

Napco Security Technologies, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company" or “Napco”) is a diversified manufacturer of security products, encompassing access control systems, door security products, intrusion and fire alarm systems, alarm communication services, and video surveillance products for commercial and residential use. These products are used for commercial, residential, institutional, industrial and governmental applications, and are sold worldwide principally to independent distributors, dealers and installers of security equipment.

 

The Company's fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. Historically, the end users of Napco's products want to install its products prior to the summer; therefore sales of its products historically peak in the period April 1 through June 30, the Company's fiscal fourth quarter, and are reduced in the period July 1 through September 30, the Company's fiscal first quarter. In addition, demand is affected by the housing and construction markets. Deterioration of the current economic conditions may also affect this trend.

 

Significant Accounting Policies:

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company, including these notes, have been prepared by the Company in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted or condensed. However, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2018 and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on September 13, 2018. Results of consolidated operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of a full year’s operating results. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Napco Security Technologies, Inc. and all of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Reclassification

 

Amounts previously recorded in cost of sales totaling $1,639,000 and 3,246,000 for the three and six months ending December 31, 2017, respectively, have been reclassified to research and development from cost of sales to conform with the current period presentation.

 

Accounting 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 reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent gains and losses at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Critical estimates include management's judgments associated with reserves for sales returns and allowances, concentration of credit risk, inventory reserves, intangible assets and income taxes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The methods and assumptions used to estimate the fair value of the following classes of financial instruments were: Current Assets and Current Liabilities - The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, certificates of deposits, current receivables and payables and certain other short-term financial instruments approximate their fair value as of December 31, 2018 due to their short-term maturities.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include approximately $460,000 of short-term time deposits at December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018. The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company has cash balances in banks in excess of the maximum amount insured by the FDIC and other international agencies as of December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018. The Company has historically not experienced any credit losses with balances in excess of FDIC limits.

 

 7 

 

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable is stated net of the reserves for doubtful accounts of $182,000 and $195,000 as of December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018, respectively. Our reserves for doubtful accounts are subjective critical estimates that have a direct impact on reported net earnings. These reserves are based upon the evaluation of our accounts receivable aging, specific exposures, sales levels and historical trends.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined on the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The reported net value of inventory includes finished saleable products, work-in-process and raw materials that will be sold or used in future periods. Inventory costs include raw materials, direct labor and overhead. The Company’s overhead expenses are applied based, in part, upon estimates of the proportion of those expenses that are related to procuring and storing raw materials as compared to the manufacture and assembly of finished products. These proportions, the method of their application, and the resulting overhead included in ending inventory, are based in part on subjective estimates and actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

In addition, the Company records an inventory obsolescence reserve, which represents any excess of the cost of the inventory over its estimated market value, based on various product sales projections. This reserve is calculated using an estimated obsolescence percentage applied to the inventory based on age, historical trends, requirements to support forecasted sales, and the ability to find alternate applications of its raw materials and to convert finished product into alternate versions of the same product to better match customer demand. In addition, and as necessary, the Company may establish specific reserves for future known or anticipated events. There is inherent professional judgment and subjectivity made by both production and engineering members of management in determining the estimated obsolescence percentage.

 

The Company also regularly reviews the period over which its inventories will be converted to sales. Any inventories expected to convert to sales beyond 12 months from the balance sheet date are classified as non-current.

 

Property, Plant, and Equipment

 

Property, plant, and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred; costs of major renewals and improvements are capitalized. At the time property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the asset and accumulated depreciation accounts and the profit or loss on such disposition is reflected in income.

 

Depreciation is recorded over the estimated service lives of the related assets using primarily the straight-line method. Amortization of leasehold improvements is calculated by using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset or lease term, whichever is shorter.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets determined to have indefinite lives are not amortized but are tested for impairment at least annually. Intangible assets with definite lives are amortized over their useful lives. Infinite-lived intangible assets are reviewed for impairment at least annually at the Company’s fiscal year end of June 30 or more often whenever there is an indication that the carrying amount may not be recovered.

 

The Company’s acquisition of substantially all of the assets and certain liabilities of G. Marks Hardware, Inc. (“Marks”) in August 2008 included intangible assets recorded at fair value on the date of acquisition. The customer relationships are amortized over their estimated useful lives of twenty years. The Marks trade name was deemed to have an indefinite life.

 

Changes in intangible assets are as follows (in thousands):

 

   December 31, 2018   June 30, 2018 
   Cost   Accumulated
amortization
   Net book
value
   Cost   Accumulated

   $15,700   $(8,312)  $7,388   $15,700   $(8,155)  $7,545

Amortization expense for intangible assets subject to amortization was approximately $79,000 and $92,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Amortization expense for intangible assets subject to amortization was approximately $157,000 and $185,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Amortization expense for each of the next five fiscal years is estimated to be as follows: 2019 - $313,000; 2020 -$264,000; 2021 - $223,000; 2022 - $188,000; and 2023 - $159,000. The weighted average amortization period for intangible assets was 9.6 years and 10.6 years at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets in question may not be recoverable. Impairment would be recorded in circumstances where undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by an asset are less than the carrying value of that asset.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”), Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which the Company adopted effective July 1, 2018. Accordingly, the Company recognizes revenue when its customers obtain control of its products or services, in an amount that reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods and services. See Note 2 – Revenue Recognition for additional accounting policies and transition disclosures.

 

Advertising and Promotional Costs

 

Advertising and promotional costs are included in "Selling, General and Administrative" expenses in the consolidated statements of income and are expensed as incurred. Advertising expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $435,000 and $462,000, respectively. Advertising expense for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $1,085,000 and $1,103,000, respectively.

 

Research and Development Costs

 

Research and development costs incurred by the Company are charged to expense as incurred and are included in "Operating expenses" in the consolidated statements of operations. Company-sponsored research and development expense for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $1,762,000 and $1,639,000, respectively. Company-sponsored research and development expense for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 was $3,507,000 and $3,246,000, respectively. These amounts, previously recorded in cost of sales have been reclassified to research and development to conform with the current period presentation.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred income tax expense represents the change during the period in the deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company measures and recognizes the tax implications of positions taken or expected to be taken in its tax returns on an ongoing basis.

 

Net Income Per Share

 

Basic net income per common share (Basic EPS) is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net income per common share (Diluted EPS) is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents and convertible securities then outstanding.

 

The following provides a reconciliation of information used in calculating the per share amounts for the three months ended December 31 (in thousands, except per share data):

Options to purchase 11,826 and 870 shares of common stock were excluded for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively were not included in the computation of Diluted EPS because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. These options were still outstanding at the end of the respective periods.

 

The following provides a reconciliation of information used in calculating the per share amounts for the six months ended December 31 (in thousands, except per share data):

 

   Net Income   Weighted Average Shares   Net Income per Share 
   2018   2017   2018   2017   2018   2017 
Basic EPS  $4,373   $2,123    18,665    18,848   $0.23   $0.11

Diluted EPS  $4,373   $2,123    18,713    18,881   $0.23   $0.11 

 

Options to purchase 5,913 and 435 shares of common stock were excluded for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively were not included in the computation of Diluted EPS because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. These options were still outstanding at the end of the respective periods.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company has established three share incentive programs as discussed in Note 8.

 

Stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Determining the fair value of share-based awards at the grant date requires assumptions and judgments about expected volatility and forfeiture rates, among other factors.

 

Stock-based compensation costs of $147,000 and $103,000 were recognized for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Stock-based compensation costs of $152,000 and $136,000 were recognized for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Foreign Currency

 

The Company has determined the functional currency of all foreign subsidiaries is the U.S Dollar. All foreign operations are considered a direct and integral part or extension of the Company's operations. The day-to-day operations of all foreign subsidiaries are dependent on the economic environment of the U.S Dollar. Therefore, no realized and unrealized gains and losses associated with foreign currency translation is recorded for the three and six months ended December 31, 2018 or 2017.

 

Comprehensive Income

 

For the three and six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company's operations did not give rise to material items includable in comprehensive income, which were not already included in net income. Accordingly, the Company's comprehensive income approximates its net income for all periods presented.

 

Segment Reporting

 

The Company’s reportable operating segments are determined based on the Company's management approach. The management approach is based on the way that the chief operating decision maker organizes the segments within an enterprise for making operating decisions and assessing performance. The Company's results of operations are reviewed by the chief operating decision maker on a consolidated basis and the Company operates in only one segment. The Company has presented required geographical data in Note 12.

Shipping and Handling Revenues and Costs

 

The Company records the amount billed to customers for shipping and handling in net sales ($103,000 and $125,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively and $204,000 and $247,000 in the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively) and classifies the costs associated with these revenues in cost of sales ($265,000 and $252,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively and $547,000 and $459,000 in the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively).

 

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (ASU 2014-09), which amended the accounting standards for revenue recognition. This standard superseded all prior revenue recognition standards and requires entities to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The standard also requires more detailed disclosures to enable users of financial statements to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.

 

The Company adopted this ASU effective July 1, 2018. See Note 2, Revenue Recognition for additional accounting policy and transition disclosures.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that requires lessees to account for most leases on their balance sheets with the liability being equal to the present value of the lease payments.  The right-of-use asset will be based on the lease liability adjusted for certain costs such as direct costs.  Lease expense will be recognized similar to current accounting guidance with operating leases resulting in a straight-line expense and financing leases resulting in a front-loaded expense similar to the current accounting for capital leases.  This guidance becomes effective for the Company’s fiscal 2020 first quarter, with early adoption permitted.  This guidance must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest comparative period in the financial statements, and provides for certain practical expedients.  The Company is currently evaluating the timing, impact and method of applying this guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 2 – Revenue Recognition and Contracts with Customers

 

Adoption

 

On July 1, 2018, the Company adopted new guidance on revenue from contracts with customers using the modified retrospective method applied to contracts that were not completed as of July 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning after July 1, 2018 are presented under the new guidance, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with previous guidance.

 

The Company recorded a net decrease to opening retained earnings of approximately $720,000 (net of tax benefit of $191,000) as of July 1, 2018, for the cumulative impact of adopting the new guidance. The impact primarily related to the change in the recognition and measurement of certain types of variable consideration, which resulted in the increase in sales allowance reserves (i.e. refund liabilities) by a net of $1,627,000 and increased other assets (i.e. return related assets) by approximately $716,000.

 

Also, due to the adoption of the new standard, the Company classified certain reserves in respect of refund liabilities that were previously presented as a reduction from receivables, to current liabilities amounting to approximately $2,964,000 as of December 31, 2018. Further, amounts related to promotion payments to customers are now classified as a reduction of sales.

 

The impact of applying this ASU for the three and six months ended December 31, 2018 resulted in an immaterial change in product sales.

 

Net Sales

 

The Company is engaged in one major line of business: the development, manufacture, and distribution of security products, encompassing access control systems, door security products, intrusion and fire alarm systems, alarm communication services, and video surveillance products for commercial and residential use. The Company also provides wireless communication service for intrusion and fire alarm systems on a monthly basis. These products are used for commercial, residential, institutional, industrial and governmental applications, and are sold worldwide principally to independent distributors, dealers and installers of security equipment. Sales to unaffiliated customers are primarily shipped from the United States. The Company has customers worldwide with major concentrations in North America.

 

 11 

 

 

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products or services.

 

For product sales the Company typically transfers control at a point in time upon shipment or delivery of the product. For monthly communication services the Company satisfies its performance obligation as the services are rendered and therefore recognizes revenue over the monthly period.

 

Typically timing of revenue recognition coincides with the timing of invoicing to the customers, at which time the Company has an unconditional right to consideration. As such, the Company typically records a receivable when revenue is recognized.

 

The contract with the customer states the final terms of the sale, including the description, quantity, and price of each product purchased. Payment for product sales is typically due within 30 and 180 days of the delivery date. Payment for monthly communication services is billed on a monthly basis and is typically due at the beginning of the month of service.

 

The Company provides limited standard warranty for defective products, usually for a period of 24 to 36 months. The Company accepts returns for such defective products as well as for other limited circumstances. The Company also provides rebates to customers for meeting specified purchasing targets and other coupons or credits in limited circumstances. The Company establishes reserves for the estimated returns, rebates and credits and measures such variable consideration based on the expected value method using an analysis of historical data. Changes to the estimated variable consideration in subsequent periods are not material.

 

The Company analyzes sales returns and is able to make reasonable and reliable estimates of product returns based on the Company’s past history. Estimates for sales returns are based on several factors including actual returns and based on expected return data communicated to it by its customers. Accordingly, the Company believes that its historical returns analysis is an accurate basis for its allowance for sales returns. Actual results could differ from those estimates. As a percentage of gross sales, sales returns, rebates and allowances were 5% and 8% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. As a percentage of gross sales, sales returns, rebates and allowances were 7% and 8% for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

In accordance with ASC 606-10-50, the Company disaggregates revenue from contracts with customers into major product lines. The Company determines that disaggregating revenue into these categories achieves the disclosure objective to depict how the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors. As noted in the accounting policy footnote, the Company’s business consists of one operating segment. Following is the disaggregation of revenues based on major product lines (in thousands):

 

   Three months ended December 31,   Six months ended December 31, 
   2018   2017   2018   2017 
Major Product Lines:                    
Intrusion and Access alarm products  $7,724   $6,633   $14,815   $13,122 
Door locking devices   12,961    11,636    25,460    23,733 
Services   4,144    2,843    7,930    5,431 
Total Revenues  $24,829   $21,112   $48,205   $42,286 

 

NOTE 3 - Business and Credit Concentrations

 

An entity is more vulnerable to concentrations of credit risk if it is exposed to risk of loss greater than it would have had if it mitigated its risk through diversification of customers. Such risks of loss manifest themselves differently, depending on the nature of the concentration, and vary in significance. The Company had one customer with an accounts receivable balance that comprised 21% and 22% of the Company’s accounts receivable at December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018, respectively. Sales to this customer comprised 12% and 11% of net sales in the three and six months ended December 31, 2018, respectively. Sales to this customer did not exceed 10% of net sales in either of the three or six months ended December 31, 2017. The Company had another customer with an accounts receivable balance that comprised 12% and 11% of the Company’s accounts receivable at December 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018, respectively. Sales to this customer did not exceed 10% of net sales in either of the three or six months ended December 31, 2018 or 2017.

NOTE 4 - Inventories

 

Inventories, net of reserves are valued at lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or net realizable value. The Company regularly reviews parts and finished goods inventories on hand and, when necessary, records a provision for excess or obsolete inventories. The Company also regularly reviews the period over which its inventories will be converted to sales. Any inventories expected to convert to sales beyond 12 months from the balance sheet date are classified as non-current.

 

Inventories, net of reserves consist of the following (in thousands):

 

   December
31, 2018
   June 30,
2018
     
Component parts  $18,917   $16,495      
Work-in-process   5,151    4,491      
Finished product   9,115    7,948      
   $33,183   $28,934      
                
Classification of inventories, net of reserves:           
Current  $27,116   $24,533      
Non-current   6,067    4,401      
   $33,183   $28,934      

 

NOTE 5 – Property, Plant and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment consist of the following (in thousands):

 

   December

   June 30,
2018
     Useful Life in Years 
         
Land  $904   $904

Molds and dies   7,326    7,275    3 to 5 
Furniture and fixtures   2,601    2,599    5 to 10 
Machinery and equipment   23,444    22,996    7 to 10 
Leasehold improvements   1,325    706    Shorter of the lease term or life of asset 
    44,511    43,391      
Less: accumulated depreciation and amortization   (37,106)   (36,600)     
   $7,405   $6,791      

 

Depreciation and amortization expense on property, plant, and equipment was approximately $259,000 and $248,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Depreciation and amortization expense on property, plant, and equipment was approximately $506,000 and $484,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

NOTE 6 - Income Taxes

 

The provision for income taxes represents Federal, foreign, and state and local income taxes. The effective rate differs from statutory rates due to the effect of state and local income taxes, tax rates in foreign jurisdictions, global intangible low-taxed income (“GILTI”), tax benefit of R&D credits and certain nondeductible expenses. Our effective tax rate will change from quarter to quarter based on recurring and non-recurring factors including, but not limited to, the geographical mix of earnings, enacted tax legislation, and state and local income taxes. In addition, changes in judgment from the evaluation of new information resulting in the recognition, de-recognition or re-measurement of a tax position taken in a prior annual period is recognized separately in the quarter of the change.

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”). The Tax Act is comprehensive tax legislation effective January 1, 2018 that implements complex changes to the U.S. tax code including, but not limited to, the reduction of the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% and includes provisions to tax GILTI. We are subject to the GILTI provisions effective for fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. The Tax Act also imposed a one-time transition tax on its unremitted foreign earnings. Accounting Standard codification (“ASC”) 740 requires filers to record the effects of tax law changes in the period enacted. However, the SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”), that permits filers to record provisional amounts during a measurement period ending no later than one year from the date of the Act’s enactment. As of December 31, 2018, the Company finalized its accounting for the income tax effects of the Tax Act and no additional expense was recorded since the final transition tax liability was equal to the $381,000 provisional expense reported in the fiscal year ended 6/30/2018.

 

For the six months ended December 31, 2018, the Company recognized a net income tax expense of $667,000. During the six months ended December 31, 2018, the Company increased its reserve for uncertain income tax positions by $35,000. The Company’s practice is to recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense and accrued income taxes. As of December 31, 2018, the Company had accrued interest totaling $0 and $256,000 of unrecognized net tax benefits that, if recognized, would favorably affect the Company’s effective income tax rate in any future period. The Company claims research and development (“R&D”) tax credits on eligible research and development expenditures. The R&D tax credits are recognized as a reduction to income tax expense.

 

The Company does not expect that our unrecognized tax benefits will significantly change within the next twelve months. We file a consolidated U.S. income tax return and tax returns in certain state and local and foreign jurisdictions. As of December 31, 2018 we remain subject to examination in all tax jurisdictions for all relevant jurisdictional statutes for fiscal years 2015 and thereafter.

 

In November 2018, the Company received a Notice of Proposed Adjustment ("NOPA") from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) proposing an adjustment to income for the fiscal 2016 tax year regarding deemed dividends based on its interpretation under IRC Section 956 arising from the intercompany balances on the books of the Company. The incremental tax liability associated with the income adjustment proposed in the NOPA would be approximately $1.8 million, excluding any interest and penalties. The Company strongly believes that the position of the IRS with regard to this matter is inconsistent with the provisions of the IRC Section 956 and management believes that the Company will prevail, and that the tax originally paid in fiscal 2016 is correct, as such no additional reserve for this tax uncertainty has been recognized. However, there can be no assurance that this matter will ultimately be resolved in the Company's favor.

 

The Company has identified its U.S. Federal income tax return and its State return in New York as its major tax jurisdictions.

 

NOTE 7 - Long-Term Debt

 

As of December 31, 2018, long-term debt consisted of a revolving line of credit of $11,000,000 (“Agreement”) which expires in June 2021.

 

There were no outstanding borrowings under the revolving line of credit at either December 31, 2018 or June 30, 2018.

 

The Agreement provides for a LIBOR-based interest rate option of LIBOR plus 1.15% to 2.00%, depending on the ratio of outstanding debt to EBITDA, which is to be measured and adjusted quarterly, a prime rate-based option of the prime rate plus 0.25% and other terms and conditions as more fully described in the Agreement. In addition, the Agreement provides for availability to be limited to the lesser of $11,000,000 or the result of a borrowing base formula based upon the Company’s Accounts Receivables and Inventory values net of certain deductions. The Company’s obligations under the Agreement continue to be secured by all of its assets, including but not limited to, deposit accounts, accounts receivable, inventory, and the Company’s corporate headquarters in Amityville, NY, equipment and fixtures and intangible assets. In addition, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, with the exception of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries, have issued guarantees and pledges of all of their assets to secure the Company’s obligations under the Agreement. All of the outstanding common stock of the Company’s domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the common stock of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries has been pledged to secure the Company’s obligations under the Agreement.

 

The Agreement contains various restrictions and covenants including, among others, restrictions on payment of dividends, restrictions on borrowings and compliance with certain financial ratios, as defined in the Agreement.

 

NOTE 8 - Stock Options

 

The Company follows ASC 718 “Share-Based Payment”, which requires that all share based payments to employees, including stock options, be recognized as compensation expense in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values and over the requisite service period.  The Company recorded non-cash compensation expense relating to stock-based compensation of $147,000 and $103,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively ($0.00 per basic and diluted share for each period) and $152,000 and $136,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively ($0.00 per basic and diluted share for each period)

 

2012 Employee Stock Option Plan

 

In December 2012, the stockholders approved the 2012 Employee Stock Option Plan (the “2012 Employee Plan”). The 2012 Employee Plan authorizes the granting of awards, the exercise of which would allow up to an aggregate of 950,000 shares of the Company's common stock to be acquired by the holders of such awards. Under this plan, the Company may grant stock options, which are intended to qualify as incentive stock options (“ISOs”), to valued employees. Any plan participant who is granted ISOs and possesses more than 10% of the voting rights of the Company's outstanding common stock must be granted an option with a price of at least 110% of the fair market value on the date of grant.

 

 14 

 

 

Under the 2012 Employee Plan, stock options may be granted to valued employees with a term of up to 10 years at an exercise price equal to or greater than the fair market value on the date of grant and are exercisable, in whole or in part, at 20% per year beginning on the date of grant. An option granted under this plan shall vest in full upon a “change in control” as defined in the plan. At December 31, 2018, 71,700 stock options were granted and outstanding, 36,500 stock options were exercisable and 797,900 stock options were available for grant under this plan.

 

The fair value of each option granted during the six months ended December 31, 2018 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions:

 

   2018 
Risk-free interest rates   3.1%
Expected lives   10 years 
Expected volatility   52%
Expected dividend yields   0%

 

The following table reflects activity under the 2012 Employee Plan for the six months ended December 31,:

As of December 31, 2018, there was $262,000 of unearned stock-based compensation cost related to share-based compensation arrangements granted under the 2012 Employee Plan. 24,000 and 20,000 options were granted during the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The total fair value of the options vesting during the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 under this plan was $26,000 and $80,000, respectively. The total fair value of the options vesting during the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 under this plan was $39,000 and $80,000, respectively.

2012 Non-Employee Stock Option Plan

 

In December 2012, the stockholders approved the 2012 Non-Employee Stock Option Plan (the “2012 Non-Employee Plan”). This plan authorizes the granting of awards, the exercise of which would allow up to an aggregate of 50,000 shares of the Company's common stock to be acquired by the holders of such awards. Under this plan, the Company may grant stock options to non-employee directors and consultants to the Company and its subsidiaries.

 

Under the 2012 Non-Employee Plan, stock options may be granted with a term of up to 10 years at an exercise price equal to or greater than the fair market value on the date of grant and are exercisable in whole or in part at 20% per year beginning on the date of grant. An option granted under this plan shall vest in full upon a “change in control” as defined in the plan. At December 31, 2018, 27,800 stock options were granted, 13,800 stock options were exercisable and no further stock options were available for grant under this plan.

2018 Non-Employee Stock Option Plan

 

In December 2018, the stockholders approved the 2018 Non-Employee Stock Option Plan (the “2018 Non-Employee Plan”). This plan authorizes the granting of awards, the exercise of which would allow up to an aggregate of 50,000 shares of the Company's common stock to be acquired by the holders of such awards. Under this plan, the Company may grant stock options to non-employee directors and consultants to the Company and its subsidiaries.

 

Under the 2018 Non-Employee Plan, stock options may be granted with a term of up to 10 years at an exercise price equal to or greater than the fair market value on the date of grant and are exercisable in whole or in part at 20% per year beginning on the date of grant. An option granted under this plan shall vest in full upon a “change in control” as defined in the plan. At December 31, 2018, 20,000 stock options were granted, 4,000 stock options were exercisable and 30,000 stock options were available for grant under this plan.

 

The fair value of each option granted during the six months ended December 31, 2018 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions:

 

   2018 
Risk-free interest rates   2.9%
Expected lives   10 years 
Expected volatility   50%
Expected dividend yields   0%

2002 Employee Stock Option Plan

 

In December 2002, the stockholders approved the 2002 Employee Stock Option Plan (the “2002 Employee Plan”). This plan expired in October 2012. This plan authorized the granting of awards, the exercise of which would allow up to an aggregate of 1,836,000 shares of the Company's common stock to be acquired by the holders of such awards. Under this plan, the Company may have granted stock options, which were intended to qualify as incentive stock options (ISOs), to key employees. Any plan participant who was granted ISOs and possessed more than 10% of the voting rights of the Company's outstanding common stock must have been granted an option with a price of at least 110% of the fair market value on the date of grant.

 

Under the 2002 Employee Plan, stock options have been granted to key employees with a term of 10 years at an exercise price equal to the fair market value on the date of grant and are exercisable in whole or in part at 20% per year from the date of grant. At December 31, 2018, no stock options were granted or exercisable and no further stock options were available for grant under this plan after the plans expiration in October 2012.

NOTE 9 – Stockholders’ Equity Transactions

 

On September 16, 2014 the Company’s board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to 1 million of the approximately 19.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock then outstanding. On December 21, 2018 the Company’s board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to an additional 500,000 shares. As of December 31, 2018 there was an aggregate 522,397 shares that may yet be purchased under the two repurchase plans. The repurchases will be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions subject to market conditions and the market price of the common stock. The Company repurchased 186,393 shares at a weighted average price of $14.13 under these plans during the six months ended December 31, 2018. Shares repurchased through December 31, 2018 are included in the Company’s Treasury Stock as of December 31, 2018.

NOTE 11 - Commitments and Contingencies

 

Leases

 

The Company is committed under various operating leases, not including the land lease discussed below, which do not extend beyond fiscal 2023.

 

Rent expense, with the exception of the land lease referred to below, totaled approximately $12,000 and $7,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively and $23,000 and $13,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Litigation

 

In the normal course of business, the Company is a party to claims and/or litigation. Management believes that the settlement of such claims and/or litigation, considered in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position and results of operations.

Item 2.   Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the information incorporated by reference may include "Forward-Looking Statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Exchange Act of 1934. The Company intends the Forward-Looking Statements to be covered by the Safe Harbor Provisions for Forward-Looking Statements. All statements regarding the Company's expected financial position and operating results, its business strategy, its financing plans and the outcome of any contingencies are Forward-Looking Statements. The Forward-Looking Statements are based on current estimates and projections about our industry and our business. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," or variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such Forward-Looking Statements. The Forward-Looking Statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth or implied by any Forward-Looking Statements. For example, the Company is highly dependent on its Chief Executive Officer for strategic planning. If he is unable to perform his services for any significant period of time, the Company's ability to grow could be adversely affected. In addition, factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Forward-Looking Statements include, but are not limited to, uncertain economic, military and political conditions in the world, our ability to maintain and develop competitive products, adverse tax consequences of offshore operations, the ability to maintain adequate financing and significant fluctuations in the exchange rate between the Dominican Peso and the U.S. Dollar. The Company’s Risk Factors are discussed in more detail in Item 1A in the Company’s 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Overview

 

The Company is a diversified manufacturer of security products, encompassing access control systems, door security products, intrusion and fire alarm systems, alarm communication services, and video surveillance products for commercial and residential use. These products are used for commercial, residential, institutional, industrial and governmental applications, and are sold worldwide principally to independent distributors, dealers and installers of security equipment. International sales accounted for approximately 3% of our revenues for each of the three and six months ended December, 2018 and 2017.

 

The Company owns and operates manufacturing facilities in Amityville, New York and the Dominican Republic. A significant portion of our operating costs are fixed, and do not fluctuate with changes in production levels or utilization of our manufacturing capacity. As production levels rise and factory utilization increases, the fixed costs are spread over increased output, which may contribute to increasing profit margins. Conversely, when production levels decline our fixed costs are spread over reduced levels, which may contribute to decreasing margins.

 

 20 

 

 

The security products market is characterized by constant incremental innovation in product design and manufacturing technologies. Generally, the Company typically devotes 6-8% of revenues to research and development (“R&D”) on an annual basis. The Company does not expect products resulting from our R&D investments in fiscal 2019 to contribute materially to revenue during fiscal 2019, but may benefit the Company over future years. In general, the new products introduced by the Company are initially shipped in limited quantities, and increase over time. Prices and manufacturing costs tend to decline over time as products and technologies mature.

 

Economic and Other Factors

 

We are subject to the effects of general economic and market conditions. In the event that the U.S. or international economic conditions deteriorate, our revenue, profit and cash-flow levels could be materially adversely affected in future periods. In the event of such deterioration, many of our current or potential future customers may experience serious cash flow problems and as a result may, modify, delay or cancel purchases of our products. Additionally, customers may not be able to pay, or may delay payment of, accounts receivable that are owed to us. If such events do occur, they may result in our expenses being too high in relation to our revenues and cash flows.

 

Seasonality

 

The Company's fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. Historically, the end users of the Company’s products want to install its products prior to the summer; therefore sales of its products historically peak in the period April 1 through June 30, the Company's fiscal fourth quarter, and are reduced in the period July 1 through September 30, the Company's fiscal first quarter. In addition, demand is affected by the housing and construction markets. Deterioration of the current economic conditions may also affect this trend.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The Company's significant accounting policies are fully described in Note 1 to the Company's consolidated financial statements included in its 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K.  Management believes these critical accounting policies, among others, affect its more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements.

Sales for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $3,717,000 to $24,829,000 as compared to $21,112,000 for the same period a year ago. The increase in sales for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to increased sales of door-locking products ($1,325,000), communication service revenues ($1,309,000) and intrusion and access products ($1,083,000). Sales for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $5,919,000 to $48,205,000 as compared to $42,286,000 for the same period a year ago. The increase in sales for the six months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to increased sales of communication services ($2,528,000), door-locking products ($1,727,000) and intrusion and access products ($1,664,000).

 

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased to $10,671,000 or 43.0% of sales as compared to $8,479,000 or 40.2% of sales for the same period a year ago. Gross profit for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased to $20,230,000 or 42.0% of sales as compared to $16,965,000 or 40.1% of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in gross profit for the three and six months was primarily due to the increase in sales as described above.

Research and development expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $123,000 to $1,762,000 as compared to $1,639,000 for the same period a year ago. Research and development expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $261,000 to $3,507,000 as compared to $3,246,000 for the same period a year ago. The increase was due primarily to increased salaries and additional personnel.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2018 decreased by $59,000 to $5,615,000 from $5,674,000 for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $176,000 to $11,670,000 from $11,494,000 for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased to 22.6% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 as compared to 26.9% for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased to 24.2% for the six months ended December 31, 2018 as compared to 27.2% for the same period a year ago. The decrease in dollars for the 3 months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to lower sales promotion costs. The increase in dollars for the six months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to higher executive incentive compensation during the first three months of the period as partially offset by the lower sales promotion costs during the last three months of the period. The decrease as a percentage of sales for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to the increase in net sales. The decrease as a percentage of sales for the six months ended December 31, 2018 was due primarily to the increase in net sales as partially offset by higher executive compensation.

 

Interest expense, net for the three months ended December 31, 2018 decreased by $16,000 to $6,000 as compared to $22,000 for the same period a year ago. Interest expense, net for the six months ended December 31, 2018 decreased by $35,000 to $13,000 as compared to $48,000 for the same period a year ago. The decrease in interest expense for the three and six months ended December 31, 2018 resulted from reduced outstanding debt.

 

The Company’s provision for income taxes for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $508,000 to $419,000 as compared to a benefit of $89,000 for the same period a year ago. The Company’s provision for income taxes for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $613,000 to $667,000 as compared to a 54,000 for the same period a year ago. The increase in the provision for income taxes for the three months was caused primarily by an increase in Income before Provision for Income Taxes. As a result, the Company’s effective rate for income tax was 13% and (8)% for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and 13% and 2% for the six months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $1,636,000 to $2,869,000 or $0.15 per diluted share as compared to $1,233,000 or $0.07 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Net income for the six months ended December 31, 2018 increased by $2,250,000 to $4,373,000 or $0.23 per diluted share as compared to $2,123,000 or $0.11 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. The change in net income for the three and six months ended December 31, 2018 was primarily due to the items described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During the six months ended December 31, 2018 the Company utilized a portion of its cash generated from operations ($3,757,000 of $6,346,000) to purchase property, plant and equipment ($1,119,000), and repurchase Company common stock ($2,638,000). The Company believes its current working capital, cash flows from operations and its revolving credit agreement will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operations through the next twelve months.

 

Accounts receivable at December 31, 2018 decreased by $4,658,000 as compared to June 30, 2018. This decrease is primarily the result of the higher sales volume during the quarter ended June 30, 2018, which is typically the Company’s highest, as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2018,.

 

Inventories at December 31, 2018 increased by $4,608,000 as compared to June 30, 2018. This increase is primarily the result of the Company increasing inventory on certain new devices relating to its service revenues as well as the Company’s level-loading its production output throughout the year, whereas the Company’s sales are typically highest in the fourth quarter.

 

Accounts payable and accrued expenses other than accrued income taxes increased by $140,000 as of December 31, 2018 as compared to June 30, 2018. This increase was due primarily to the increase in inventory discussed above.

 

As of December 31, 2018, long-term debt consisted of a revolving credit facility of $11,000,000 which expires in June 2021. As of December 31, 2018, the Company had no outstanding borrowings and $11,000,000 in availability under the Agreement. The Company’s long-term debt is described more fully in Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Agreement contains various restrictions and covenants including, among others, restrictions on borrowings and compliance with certain financial ratios, as defined in the restated agreement.

 

As of December 31, 2018 the Company had no material commitments for capital expenditures or inventory purchases other than purchase orders issued in the normal course of business.

ITEM 3: Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

All foreign sales transactions by the Company are denominated in U.S. dollars. As such, the Company has shifted foreign currency exposure onto its foreign customers. As a result, if exchange rates move against foreign customers, the Company could experience difficulty collecting unsecured accounts receivable, the cancellation of existing orders or the loss of future orders. The foregoing could materially adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations. We are also exposed to foreign currency risk relative to expenses incurred in Dominican Pesos ("RD$"), the local currency of the Company's production facility in the Dominican Republic. The result of a 10% strengthening or weakening in the U.S. dollar to the RD$ would result in an annual increase or decrease in income from operations of approximately $630,000.

 

ITEM 4: Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management necessarily applied its judgment in assessing the costs and benefits of such controls and procedures, which, by their nature, can provide only reasonable assurance regarding management's control objectives.

 

At the conclusion of the period ended December 31, 2018, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. The Company determined that it did not have effective disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2018. As disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018, we did not have effective disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2018.

 

Management's review over its internal controls at the conclusion of fiscal 2018 identified conditions which they deemed to be a material weakness, (as defined by standards established by the SEC and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board): A lack of supervision and review to ensure proper internal control over financial reporting. Management is currently designing additional controls and procedures to remediate these items and expects to complete these actions during fiscal 2019.

 

During the three months ended December 31, 2018, there were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal controls over financial reporting. The Company does not have effective disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2018.
