NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

MARCH 31, 2020

 

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

 

Nature of Business:

 

Napco Security Technologies, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company") is a diversified manufacturer of security products, encompassing access control systems, door-locking products, intrusion and fire alarm systems and video surveillance products for commercial and residential use. The Company also provides wireless communication service for intrusion and fire alarm systems. 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 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.

 

Significant Accounting Policies:

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, 2019 and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on September 13, 2019. 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.

 

Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP 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, allowance for doubtful accounts, 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 March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2019 due to their short-term maturities.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include approximately $460,000 of short-term time deposits at March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2019. 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 Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) and other international agencies as of March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2019. The Company has not historically experienced any credit losses with balances in excess of FDIC limits.

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable is stated net of the allowances for doubtful accounts of $326,000 as of March 31, 2020 and $88,000 at June 30, 2019. Our allowances for doubtful accounts are subjective critical estimates that have a direct impact on reported net income. These allowances 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 realizable 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 with definite lives are amortized over their useful lives. Indefinite-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):

 

   March 31, 2020   June 30, 2019 
   Cost   Accumulated
amortization
   Net book
value
   Cost   Accumulated
amortization
   Net book
value
 
   Customer relationships  $9,800   $(8,666)  $1,134   $9,800   $(8,468)  $1,332 
   Trade name   5,900    -    5,900    5,900    -    5,900 
   $15,700   $(8,666)  $7,034   $15,700   $(8,468)  $7,232 

 

Amortization expense for intangible assets subject to amortization was approximately $66,000 and $78,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Amortization expense for intangible assets subject to amortization was approximately $198,000 and $235,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Amortization expense for each of the next five fiscal years is estimated to be as follows: 2020 -$264,000; 2021 - $223,000; 2022 - $188,000; 2023 - $159,000 and 2024 - $134,000. The remaining weighted average amortization period for intangible assets was 8.4 years and 9.4 years at March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

During the nine months ended March 31, 2020, the Company experienced a decline in revenues related to the Trade Name intangible asset compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2019. Management considered whether the decline in revenues and loss from continuing operations related to this intangible asset during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 constituted a triggering event requiring the assessment of the Trade Name for impairment. It was determined that such decline in revenues did constitute a triggering event. Management performed a preliminary impairment analysis, developing a fair value of the Trade Name as of March 31, 2020, utilizing estimates and assumptions related to future revenue growth, discount rates, and royalty rates and determined that no impairment was necessary to be recorded.

 

Based on the Company’s seasonal sales cycle, management believes that it is too early to assess if the unfavorable conditions are short-term in nature that will be recovered in the future. The fourth quarter of the fiscal year is typically the Company’s strongest quarter for revenue and gross margin generated from the Trade Name. As a result, management will continue to evaluate its forward projections, on-going operations and growth initiatives in light of the current economic conditions, which re-evaluation is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter in connection with the annual impairment test.  The continuing adverse economic conditions in the U.S. may reduce revenues and gross margins associated with the Company’s intangible assets and result in a reduction of future expected cash flows. If declines occur, they would likely affect the discount and royalty rates used in the annual impairment analysis of the Trade Name. If any impairment is identified, the related adjustment to identifiable intangible assets will be recorded against the operations of the period in which such identification is made and may be material.

 

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.

 

Leases

 

Effective July 1, 2019, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”), Topic 842, Leases at the inception of a contract, we assess whether the contract is, or contains, a lease. The assessment is based on (1) whether the contract involves the use of a distinct identified asset, (2) whether the Company obtains the right to substantially all the economic benefit from the use of the asset throughout the period, and (3) whether the Company has the right to direct the use of the asset.

 

All significant lease arrangements are generally recognized at lease commencement. Operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities are recognized at commencement. An ROU asset and corresponding lease liability are not recorded for leases with an initial term of 12 months or less (short term leases) and we recognize lease expense for these leases as incurred over the lease term.

 

ROU assets represent our right to use an underlying asset during the reasonably certain lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. We primarily use our incremental borrowing rate based on information available at the lease commencement date, in determining the present value of lease payments. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option.

 

Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Lease payments may be fixed or variable, however, only fixed payments or in-substance fixed payments are included in determining the lease liability. See Note 11 – Commitments for additional accounting policies and transition disclosures.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

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 March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $307,000 and $190,000, respectively. Advertising expense for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $1,448,000 and $1,278,000, respectively.

 

 11 

 

 

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 income. Company-sponsored research and development expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $1,816,000 and $1,851,000, respectively. Company-sponsored research and development expense for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $5,387,000 and $5,358,000, respectively.

 

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):

 

   Net Income   Weighted Average Shares   Net Income per Share 
   2020   2019   2020   2019   2020   2019 
Basic EPS  $3,615   $3,122    18,472    18,489   $0.20   $0.17 
Effect of Dilutive Securities:                              
Stock Options   -    -    44    44    -    - 
Diluted EPS  $3,615   $3,122    18,516    18,533   $0.20   $0.17 

 

Options to purchase 44,000 and 0 shares of common stock were excluded for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 nine months ended March 31 (in thousands, except per share data):

 

   Net Income   Weighted Average Shares   Net Income per Share 
   2020   2019   2020   2019   2020   2019 
Basic EPS  $10,420   $7,495    18,476    18,607   $0.56   $0.40 
Effect of Dilutive Securities:                              
Stock Options   -    -    54    47    -    - 
Diluted EPS  $10,420   $7,495    18,530    18,654   $0.56   $0.40 

 

Options to purchase 27,000 and 3,942 shares of common stock were excluded for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 $172,000 and $0 were recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Stock-based compensation costs of $497,000 and $152,000 were recognized for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 or unrealized gains and losses associated with foreign currency translation are recorded for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 or 2019.

 

Comprehensive Income

 

For the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 ($135,000 and $109,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively and $355,000 and $313,000 in the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively) and classifies the costs associated with these revenues in cost of sales ($300,000 and $280,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively and $831,000 and $827,000 in the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively).

 

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Standards

 

On July 1, 2019, we adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02), as amended, which supersedes the lease accounting guidance under Topic 840, and generally requires lessees to recognize operating and financing lease liabilities and corresponding right-of-use assets on the balance sheet and to provide enhanced disclosures surrounding the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leasing arrangements. We adopted the new guidance using the modified retrospective transition approach by applying the new standard to all leases existing at the date of initial application and not restating comparative periods. The most significant impact was the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities for operating leases. For information regarding the impact of Topic 842 adoption, see Significant Accounting Policies - Leases and Note 11- Leases.

 

NOTE 2 – Revenue Recognition and Contracts with Customers

 

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.

 

 13 

 

 

The Company recorded a net decrease to opening retained earnings of approximately $719,000 (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. As of March 31, 2020, the Company included return-related assets of approximately $890,000 in other current assets.

 

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 $3,714,000 as of March 31, 2020. Further, amounts related to promotion payments to customers are now classified as a reduction of 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.

 

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 9% and 8% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. As a percentage of gross sales, sales returns, rebates and allowances were 9% and 7% for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 March 31,   Nine months ended March 31, 
   2020   2019   2020   2019 
Major Product Lines:                    
   Intrusion and access alarm products  $8,409   $8,113   $24,163   $22,928 
   Door locking devices   11,598    12,484    36,810    37,944 
   Services   6,232    4,546    17,380    12,476 
     Total Revenues  $26,239   $25,143   $78,353   $73,348

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 24% and 19% of the Company’s accounts receivable at March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. Sales to this customer comprised 12% and 14% of net sales in the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Sales to this customer comprised 11% and 12% of net sales in the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The Company had another customer with an accounts receivable balance that comprised 13% of the Company’s accounts receivable balance at March 31, 2020. The customer’s accounts receivable balance did not exceed 10% at June 30, 2019. Sales to this customer comprised 12% of net sales during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Sales to this customer did not exceed 10% of net sales in either the three months ended March 31, 2019 or the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

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):

 

   March 31, 2020   June 30, 2019 
Component parts  $26,366   $21,543 
Work-in-process   6,581    5,377 
Finished products   9,690    7,918 
   $42,637   $34,838 

 

Classification of inventories, net of reserves (in thousands):
Current  $34,615   $29,576 
Non-current   8,022    5,262 
   $42,637   $34,838 

 

NOTE 5 – Property, Plant and Equipment

 

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

 

   March 31, 2020   June 30, 2019   Useful Life in Years
        
Land  $904   $904   -
Buildings   8,911    8,911   30 to 40
Molds and dies   7,337    7,333   3 to 5
Furniture and fixtures   2,789    2,691   5 to 10
Machinery and equipment   24,588    23,915   7 to 10
Leasehold improvements   2,173    1,625   Shorter of the lease term or life of asset
    46,702    45,379    
Less: accumulated depreciation and amortization   (38,597)   (37,685)   
   $8,105   $7,694    

  

 15 

 

 

Depreciation and amortization expense on property, plant, and equipment was approximately $306,000 and $281,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Depreciation and amortization expense on property, plant, and equipment was approximately $912,000 and $787,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 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 were subject to the GILTI provisions effective for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. The Tax Act also imposed a one-time transition tax on its unremitted foreign earnings. 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 March 31, 2019, 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 expense was equal to the $381,000 provisional expense reported in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018. The net section 965 tax liability was $442,000 which is payable over 8 years.

 

For the nine months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recognized a net income tax expense of $1,225,000. During the nine months ended March 31, 2020, the Company increased its reserve for uncertain income tax positions by $45,000. 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 March 31, 2020, the Company had accrued interest totaling $0 as well as $171,000 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 R&D tax credits on eligible development R&D 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 March 31, 2020, we remain subject to examination in all tax jurisdictions for all relevant jurisdictional statutes for fiscal years 2016 and thereafter.

 

In January 2020, the Company received a letter from the IRS (“IRS”) notifying it that the IRS would be examining the Company’s income tax return for fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. Management believes that its provision for income taxes for this period is adequate. However, the outcome cannot be predicted with certainty.

 

In July 2019, the Company received a Form 4549-A, Income Tax Examination Changes (“IRS Notice”) from the IRS proposing an adjustment to income for the fiscal 2016 tax year regarding deemed dividends based on its interpretation under Internal Revenue Code (“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 IRS Notice would be approximately $1.8 million, excluding any interest and penalties. The Company filed a protest with the IRS in August 2019. The Company 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 March 31, 2020, the Company’s primary source of outside financing 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 March 31, 2020 or June 30, 2019.

 

The Agreement also provides for an interest rate option of London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.15% to 2.00%, depending on the ratio of outstanding debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“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

2012 Employee Stock Option Plan

 

In December 2012, the stockholders approved the 2012 Employee Stock Option Plan (“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.

 

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 March 31, 2020, 99,400 stock options were outstanding, 36,900 stock options were exercisable and 751,900 stock options were available for grant under this plan.

 

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

 

  2020   2019
Risk-free interest rates 1.30% - 2.10%   3.10%
Expected lives 10 years   10 years
Expected volatility 44% - 46%   52%
Expected dividend yields 0%   0%

NOTE 11 - Commitments and Contingencies

 

Leases

 

Effective July 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new lease accounting standard using the modified retrospective transition option of applying the new standard at the adoption date. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to not reassess (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) initial direct costs for any existing leases. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of an operating ROU asset and lease liabilities of approximately $7.7 million. Given the length of the lease term, the right-of-use asset and corresponding liability assume a weighted discount rate as disclosed below. A change in the rate utilized could have a material effect on the amounts reported. Financial positions for reporting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2019 are presented under new guidance, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with previous guidance.

 

Our lease obligation consists of a 99 year lease which commenced on April 26, 1993 with one of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries, expiring in 2092, for approximately four acres of land in the Dominican Republic at an annual cost of $288,000, on which the Company’s principal production facility is located.

Employment and Severance Agreements

 

As of March 31, 2020, the Company was obligated under three employment agreements and one severance agreement. The employment agreements are with the Company’s CEO, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing (“the SVP of Sales”) and the Senior Vice President of Engineering (“the SVP of Engineering”). The employment agreement with the CEO provides for an annual salary of $806,000, as adjusted for inflation; incentive compensation as may be approved by the Board of Directors from time to time and a termination payment in an amount up to 299% of the average of the prior five calendar year's compensation, subject to certain limitations, as defined in the agreement. The employment agreement renews annually in August unless either party gives the other notice of non-renewal at least six months prior to the end of the applicable term.

Note 13 – COVID-19 and Current Economic Conditions and Subsequent Event

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization announced that the COVID-19 outbreak was deemed a pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic of sufficient magnitude to warrant an emergency declaration. The extent of COVID-19’s effect on the Company’s operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration, spread and intensity of the pandemic, and when state and local economies will return to operational norms, all of which are uncertain and difficult to predict considering the rapidly evolving landscape. In particular, certain of our customers are in or have exposure areas that have reduced or suspended operations, or are located in areas that have been subject to stay-at-home orders. A prolonged stay-at-home order, or any other continued decrease in economic activity as a result of COVID-19, would have a negative adverse impact on our customers and their financial condition, which could impact their ability to meet their financial obligations and could result in elevated levels of delinquencies and bad debt losses. In addition, we rely upon our third-party vendors to provide parts and materials for us to produce our products. If any of these vendors are unable to continue to provide us with these parts and materials, it could negatively impact our ability to serve our customers. We also could be adversely affected if key personnel or a significant number of employees were to become unavailable due to the effects and restrictions of a COVID-19 outbreak in our market areas.

 

In April 2020, the Company received $1,054,000 in loan proceeds pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The loan will bear interest at 1% per annum, mature in April 2022 and contains no collateral or guarantee requirements. Subject to certain eligibility and certification requirements under the PPP, some or all of the loan amount may be forgiven; however, the amount and timing of any forgiveness is uncertain.

 

It is not currently possible to ascertain the overall impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business. However, if the pandemic continues to evolve into a prolonged worldwide health crisis, the disease could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

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 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Overview

 

The Company is a diversified manufacturer of security products, encompassing access control systems, door-locking products, intrusion and fire alarm systems and video surveillance products for commercial and residential use. The Company also provides wireless communication service for intrusion and fire alarm systems. 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 2% of our revenues for each of the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2% of our revenues for each of the three and nine months ended March 31, 2019.

 

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.

 

The security products market is characterized by constant incremental innovation in product design and manufacturing technologies. Generally, the Company 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 a given fiscal year to contribute materially to revenue during that same fiscal year, but should 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 fixed and semi-variable expenses becoming 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 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. The timing of any significant 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 2019 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 March 31, 2020 increased by $1,096,000 to $26,239,000 as compared to $25,143,000 for the same period a year ago. Sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $5,005,000 to $78,353,000 as compared to $73,348,000 for the same period a year ago. The increase in sales for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was due primarily to increased communication service revenues ($1,686,000) and sales of intrusion and access products ($264,000) as partially offset by a decrease in sales of door-locking products ($854,000). The increase in sales for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 was due primarily to increased communication service revenues ($4,904,000) and sales of intrusion and access products ($1,235,000) as partially offset by a decrease in sales of door-locking products ($1,134,000).

 

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased to $11,956,000 or 45.6% of sales as compared to $10,729,000 or 42.7% of sales for the same period a year ago. Gross profit for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 increased to $35,601,000 or 45.4% of sales as compared to $30,959,000 or 42.2% of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in gross profit and gross profit as a percentage of sales for the three and nine months was primarily due to the increase in service revenues as described above.

 

Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 remained relatively constant at $1,815,000 as compared to $1,851,000 for the same period a year ago. Research and development expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 remained relatively constant at $5,387,000 as compared to $5,358,000 for the same period a year ago.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $865,000 to $6,096,000 as compared to $5,231,000 for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased to 23.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to 20.8% for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $1,665,000 to $18,566,000 as compared to $16,901,000 for the same period a year ago. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased to 23.7% for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to 23.0% for the same period a year ago. The increases for the three and nine months were primarily due to increased media advertising, additional sales staff and salary increases, an increase in the reserve for bad debts relating to the current COVID-19 impact on the U.S. economic conditions and increased stock option expense resulting from the significant increase in the Company’s common stock price which is used in the valuation of the options granted during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020. The increase as a percentage of sales for the three and nine months was primarily due to selling, general and administrative expenses, as described above, increasing at a proportionately higher rate than net sales as compared to the same period a year ago.

Interest expense, net for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 remained relatively constant at $5,000 and $3,000, respectively, as compared to $5,000 and $18,000 for the same periods a year ago, respectively.

 

The Company’s provision for income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2020 decreased by $95,000 to $425,000 as compared to $520,000 for the same period a year ago. The Company’s provision for income taxes for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $38,000 to $1,225,000 as compared to $1,187,000 for the same period a year ago. The decrease in the provision for income taxes for the three months was caused primarily by an increase in the proportion of foreign income to U.S. income in fiscal 2020 as partially offset by the increase in pre-tax income. The increase in the provision for income taxes for the nine months was caused primarily by the increase in pre-tax income as partially offset by an increase in the proportion of foreign income to U.S. income in fiscal 2020. As a result, the Company’s effective rate for income tax was 11% and 14% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively and 11% and 13% for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $493,000 to $3,615,000 or $0.20 per diluted share as compared to $3,122,000 or $0.17 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $2,925,000 to $10,420,000 or $0.56 per diluted share as compared to $7,495,000 or $0.40 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. The change in net income for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily due to the items described above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During the nine months ended March 31, 2020 the Company utilized a portion of its cash generated from operations ($3,675,000 of $6,614,000) to purchase Treasury Stock ($2,350,000) and to purchase property, plant and equipment ($1,325,000). 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 March 31, 2020 decreased by $2,624,000 as compared to June 30, 2019. This decrease is primarily the result of the higher sales volume during the quarter ended June 30, 2019, which is typically the Company’s highest, as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

 

Inventories at March 31, 2020 increased by $7,799,000 as compared to June 30, 2019. This increase is primarily the result of the Company increasing inventory of certain new devices relating to its recurring communication 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 decreased by $409,000 as of March 31, 2020 as compared to June 30, 2019. This decrease was due primarily to delays in shipments from some of the Company’s suppliers in the Far East as partially offset by increased purchases of inventory as discussed above.

 

As of March 31, 2020, the Company maintained a revolving credit facility of $11,000,000 which expires in June 2021. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had no outstanding borrowings and $11,000,000 in availability under this facility. The Company’s long-term debt is described more fully in Note 7 to the condensed consolidated financial statements. The facility 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 March 31, 2020 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 $700,000.

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 March 31, 2020, 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. Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at March 31, 2020.

 

During the nine months ended March 31, 2020, 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.

 

PART II: OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Information regarding the Company’s Risk Factors are set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019. There has been no material change in the risk factors previously disclosed in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019 during the six months ended December 31, 2019 except for the following:

 

The outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) is having an adverse impact on the U.S. economy, and could have an adverse impact on our results of operations and financial condition, including, but not limited to, a write down of our intangible assets, which could be material. Further, the spread of the outbreak could lead to a prolonged economic recession or other severe disruptions in the U.S. economy and may disrupt the security industry in which we operate and could potentially create widespread business continuity issues for us.

 

The spread of COVID-19 has had a significant economic impact in the market in which we operate. We expect this impact to worsen and last for an indeterminate period. While these developments have not adversely affected our business and results of operations as of March 31, 2020, we believe they could adversely impact our financial condition in the future, in amounts which cannot be determined and could be material. In particular, certain of our customers are in, or have exposure in, areas that have reduced or suspended operations, or are located in areas that have been subject to stay-at-home orders. A prolonged stay-at-home order, or any other continued decrease in economic activity as a result of COVID-19, would have a negative adverse impact on our customers and their financial condition, which could impact their ability to meet their financial obligations and could result in elevated levels of delinquencies and bad debt losses. In addition, under current accounting standards, if the Company determines intangible assets are impaired, it will be required to write down these assets. Any write-down would have a negative effect on the consolidated financial statements. The continuing adverse economic conditions in the U.S. may reduce revenues associated with the Company’s intangible assets and result in a reduction of future expected cash flows. Such a reduction could result in significant impairment charges to adjust the carrying value of the intangible assets. See “Note 13 – COVID-19 and Current Economic Conditions” for additional information.
