NVE CORPORATION
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
     We develop and sell devices that use spintronics, a nanotechnology that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store, and transmit information.

NOTE 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
     The accompanying unaudited financial statements of NVE Corporation are prepared consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, these financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements. Although we believe that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, certain disclosures have been omitted as allowed, and it is suggested that these unaudited financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes included in our latest annual financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2020.

Significant Accounting Policies
Revenue Recognition
    We recognize revenue when we satisfy performance obligations by the transfer of control of products or services to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those products or services. Revenue is disaggregated into product sales and contract research and development to depict the nature, amount, timing of revenue recognition and economic characteristics of our business, and is represented within the financial statements.

     We recognize revenue from product sales to customers and distributors when we satisfy our performance obligation, at a point in time, upon product shipment or delivery to our customer or distributor as determined by agreed upon shipping terms. Shipping charges billed to customers are included in product sales and the related shipping costs are included in cost of sales. Under certain limited circumstances, our distributors may earn commissions for activities unrelated to their purchases of our products, such as for facilitating the sale of custom products or research and development contracts with third parties. We recognize any such commissions as selling, general, and administrative expenses. We recognize discounts provided to our distributors as reductions in revenue.

     We recognize contract research and development revenue over a period of time as the performance obligation is satisfied over a period of time rather than a point in time. Contracts have specifications unique to each customer and do not create an asset with an alternate use, and we have an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date. We recognize revenue over a period of time using costs incurred as the measurement of progress towards completion.

     Accounts receivable is recognized when we have transferred a good or service to a customer and our right to receive consideration is unconditional through the completion of our performance obligation. A contract asset is recognized when we have a right to consideration from the transfer of goods or services to a customer but have not completed our performance obligation. A contract liability is recognized when we have been paid by a customer but have not yet satisfied the performance obligation by transferring goods or services. We had no material contract assets or contract liabilities as of June 30, 2019 or March 31, 2019.

     Our performance obligations related to product sales and contract research and development contracts are satisfied in one year or less. Unsatisfied performance obligations represent contracts with an original expected duration of one year or less. As permitted under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, we are using the practical expedient not to disclose the value of these unsatisfied performance obligations. We also use the practical expedient in which we do not assess whether a contract has a significant financing component if the expectation at contract inception is such that the period between payment by the customer and the transfer of the promised goods or services to the customer will be one year or less.

NOTE 3. RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
Recently Adopted Accounting Standard

     In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Lease Accounting. ASU 2016-02 requires recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet of lessees. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842 (Leases), which provides narrow amendments to clarify how to apply certain aspects of the new lease standard. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years, which is fiscal 2020 for us. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases Topic (842): Targeted Improvements. ASU No. 2018-11 provided companies an option to apply the transition provisions of the new lease standard at its adoption date instead of at the earliest comparative period presented in its financial statements, and we adopted the new lease guidance using that method in the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Currently our only lease is the lease for our facility. We recognized $298,983 of leased liabilities and a right-of-use asset of $261,644 as of April 1, 2019. The leased liabilities and right-of-use asset exclude non-lease components. There was no effect on our results of operations or cash flows.

New Accounting Standard Not Yet Adopted
     In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Statements. In November 2018 the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, which clarifies codification and corrects unintended application of the guidance. ASU 2016-13 requires a financial asset (or a group of financial assets) measured at amortized cost basis to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected. The allowance for credit losses is a valuation account that is deducted from the amortized cost basis of the financial asset(s) to present the net carrying value at the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. ASU 2016-13 and ASU 2018-19 are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those fiscal years, which will be fiscal 2021 for us. We do not expect adoption of the new guidance to have a significant impact on our financial statements.

NOTE 4. NET INCOME PER SHARE
     Net income per basic share is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares issued and outstanding during each period. Net income per diluted share amounts assume exercise of all stock options. The following tables show the components of diluted shares:
 
Quarter Ended June 30
2019 2018
Weighted average common shares outstanding – basic 4,846,010 4,842,010
Dilutive effect of stock options 4,378 8,469
Shares used in computing net income per share – diluted   4,850,388 4,850,479
 
 
NOTE 5. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
     Our corporate bonds and money market funds are classified as available-for-sale securities and carried at estimated fair value. Unrealized holding gains and losses are included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the statement of shareholders’ equity. Corporate bonds with remaining maturities less than one year are classified as short-term, and those with remaining maturities greater than one year are classified as long-term. We consider all highly-liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased, including money market funds, to be cash equivalents. Gains and losses on marketable security transactions are reported on the specific-identification method.
 
    The fair value of our available-for-sale securities as of June 30, 2019 by maturity were as follows:

Total <1 Year 1–3 Years 3–5 Years
$ 61,611,878 $ 2,999,689 $ 36,251,115 $ 22,361,074

     Total available-for-sale securities represented approximately 74% of our total assets. Marketable securities as of June 30, 2019 had remaining maturities between 18 days and 56 months.
 
     Generally accepted accounting principles establish a framework for measuring fair value, provide a definition of fair value, and prescribe required disclosures about fair-value measurements. Generally accepted accounting principles define fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability. Fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined using assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. Generally accepted accounting principles utilize a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of fair value measurements. The categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The categories within the valuation hierarchy are described as follows:

     Level 1 – Financial instruments with quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

     Level 2 – Financial instruments with quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities. Level 2 fair value measurements are determined using either prices for similar instruments or inputs that are either directly or indirectly observable, such as interest rates.

     Level 3 – Inputs to the fair value measurement are unobservable inputs or valuation techniques.

     Money market funds are included on the balance sheets in “Cash and cash equivalents.” Corporate bonds are included on the balance sheets in “Marketable securities, short term” and “Marketable securities, long term.”
 
     The following table shows the estimated fair value of assets that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis:

     We did not consider any of our available-for-sale securities to be impaired as of June 30, 2019. None of the securities were impaired at acquisition, and subsequent declines in fair value are not attributed to declines in credit quality. When evaluating for impairment we assess indicators that include, but are not limited to, earnings performance, changes in underlying credit ratings, market conditions, bona fide offers to purchase or sell, and ability to hold until maturity. Because we believe it is more likely than not we will recover the cost basis of our investments, we did not consider any of our marketable securities to be impaired as of June 30, 2019.

NOTE 9. LEASES
     We conduct our operations in a leased facility under a non-cancellable lease through December 31, 2020. Our lease does not provide an implicit rate, so we used our incremental borrowing rate to determine the present value of lease payments. Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Variable lease costs consist primarily of common area maintenance and real estate taxes which are paid based on actual costs incurred by the lessor.
 
     Details of our operating lease are as follows:
Quarter Ended
June 30, 2019
Operating lease cost $ 38,641
Variable lease cost 30,227  
Total $ 68,868

     Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 (the first quarter of fiscal 2020) decreased 11% compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2018 (the first quarter of fiscal 2019). The decrease was due to an 11% decrease in product sales and a 12% decrease in contract research and development revenue.

     The decrease in product sales from the prior-year quarter was primarily due to decreased purchases by existing customers. The decrease in contract research and development revenue the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was due to the completion of certain contracts.

     Gross profit margin increased to 83% of revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to 80% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 due to a more profitable product mix.

     Total expenses decreased 1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019 due to a 2% decrease in research and development expense.

     Interest income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 8% due to an increase in the average interest rates on our marketable securities and money market funds.

     The 9% decrease in net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the prior-year quarter was primarily due to a decrease in total revenue partially offset by an increase in gross profit margin.

     Comprehensive income increased 9% to $4,177,482 compared to $3,838,022 for the prior-year quarter. The increase in comprehensive income was due to an unrealized gain from marketable securities of $570,063 compared to an unrealized loss of $107,027 in the prior-year quarter, partially offset by a decrease in net income. The unrealized gain was due to strong bond market conditions.

The $6,161,988 increase in cash and cash equivalents during the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was due to $4,537,628 in net cash provided by operating activities and $6,470,370 of cash provided by investing activities, partially offset by $4,846,010 of cash used in financing activities. We currently believe our working capital and cash generated from operations will be adequate for our needs at least for the next 12 months.

Financing Activities

In addition to the dividends already paid in fiscal 2020, on July 17, 2019 we announced that our Board had declared a cash quarterly dividend of $1.00 per share of common stock, or $4,846,010 based on shares outstanding as of July 12, 2019, to be paid August 30, 2019. We plan to fund dividends through cash provided by operating activities and proceeds from maturities and sales of marketable securities. All future dividends will be subject to Board approval and subject to the company’s results of operations, cash and marketable security balances, estimates of future cash requirements, and other factors the Board may deem relevant. Furthermore, dividends may be modified or discontinued at any time without notice.
