The weakened performance is primarily from customers continuing to miss projections and pushing out order delivery dates with many of them linking their reduced requirements to the trade dispute between the United States and China and the associated tariffs.  The tariffs impact operating cash flows, increase overhead

costs and continue to drive customers to look at alternative supply chain solutions which creates inefficiencies.  The trade war has also created significant uncertainty regarding short-term plans with the Company’s customers on items such as new program launches. In addition to the issues associated with the trade war with China, the new Mexican administration increased the nationwide compensation structure / minimum wage effective January 1, 2019.  These macroeconomic factors have created short-term increased costs and will continue to have a negative effect on the Company’s cost structure.



The Company is in compliance with its financial covenants and anticipates that its credit facilities, expected future cash flows from operations and leasing resources are adequate to meet its working capital requirements, and fund capital expenditures for the next 12 months. The Company has initiated actions to improve short term operating cash flows and financial performance through on-going negotiations with key customers over both price increases, and alternative strategies for the customer to liquidate inventory purchased by the Company to fulfill customer orders based on customer-provided forecasts that they have yet to take delivery for. Key customers have acknowledged they are responsible for the inventory build-up and are actively working with the Company to resolve the issues.



However, in the event customers continue to delay orders, future payments are not made timely, the Company desires to expand its operations, its business grows more rapidly than expected, or the current economic climate deteriorates, additional financing resources may be necessary. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain equity or debt financing at acceptable terms, or at all, in the future.  There is no assurance that the Company will be able to retain or renew its credit agreements in the future, or that any retention or renewal will be on the same terms as currently exist.



Note E - Income Tax



The income tax benefit was $5,607 for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to an income tax benefit of $147,210 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The Company’s effective tax rate was 0.93% and 127.0% for the quarters ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The income tax expense was $923,379 for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to an income tax expense of $466,092 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The Company’s effective tax rate was (100.1)% and 28.8% for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The decrease in income tax benefit for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to the same period in the previous year as well as the change in the effective tax rate for the same period is due to operating losses recognized in China and Vietnam on which no tax benefit was recorded due to full valuation allowances for those jurisdictions.  The increase in income tax expense for the nine month periods ended January 31, 2019 compared to the same period in the previous year as well as the respective change in the effective tax rate for the same period is the result of the valuation allowance of $942,271 established on certain deferred tax assets related to foreign net operating loss carryforwards that more likely than not will not be realized based on projected income in those jurisdictions, the impact of foreign currency remeasurement and the impact of changes in the U.S. tax rates as a result of Tax Reform.

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act).  The Tax Act makes broad and complex changes to the U.S. tax code, including, but not limited to reducing the U.S. federal corporate tax rate from 34% to 21% and imposing a mandatory one-time transition tax on earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries that were previously tax-deferred.  Due to the Tax Act, the Company’s federal statutory income tax rate for the current fiscal year is approximately 21.0%. 



Note F - Commitments and Contingencies



From time to time the Company is involved in legal proceedings, claims or investigations that are incidental to the conduct of the Company’s business. In future periods, the Company could be subjected to cash cost or non-cash charges to earnings if any of these matters are resolved on unfavorable terms. However, although the ultimate outcome of any legal matter cannot be predicted with certainty, based on present information, including management’s assessment of the merits of any particular claim, the Company does not expect that these legal proceedings or claims will have any material adverse impact on its future consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.



In conjunction with the May 2012 acquisition of Spitfire, an estimate of the fair value of the contingent consideration, $2,320,000, was recorded based on expected operating results through fiscal 2019 and the specific terms of when such consideration would be earned.  Those terms provide for additional consideration to be paid based on a percentage of sales and pre-tax profits over those years in excess of certain minimums.  Payments are made quarterly each year and adjusted after each year-end audit.  The Company adjusted the estimated remaining payments expected to be paid under the agreement, which resulted in a decrease of $17,517 and increase of $17,104 for the three and nine month periods ended January 31, 2019, respectively.  Any change in the Company’s estimate is reflected as a change in the contingent consideration liability and as additional charges or credits to selling and administrative expenses.  This continues to be measured and reported as a level 3 fair value at each period end.  The Company made payments in the amount of $101,806 and $129,395 for the three months ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The Company made payments totaling $156,881 and $175,269 for the nine months ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  As of January 31, 2019, the contingent consideration liability was $73,683 compared to $213,460 at April 30, 2018.

Note G - Critical Accounting Policies



Management Estimates and Uncertainties -  The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Significant estimates made in preparing the consolidated financial statements include depreciation and amortization periods, the allowance for doubtful accounts, reserves for inventory, lower of cost or market adjustment for inventory, contingent consideration, deferred taxes, uncertain tax positions, valuation allowance for deferred taxes and valuation of long-lived assets.  Actual results could materially differ from these estimates.



Revenue Recognition – The Company recognizes revenue when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to its customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services.  The Company’s primary performance obligation to its customers is the production of finished goods electronic assembly products pursuant to purchase orders.  The Company has concluded that control of the products it sells and transfers to its customers and an enforceable right to receive payment is customarily established at the point in time when the finished goods are shipped to its customers, or in some cases delivery pursuant to the specified shipping terms of each customer arrangement.  With respect to consignment arrangements, control transfers and revenue is recognized at the point in time when the goods are shipped to the customer from the consignment location or when delivered to the customer (pursuant to agreed upon shipping terms).  In those limited instances where finished goods delivered to the customer location are stored in a segregated area which are not controlled by the customer (title transfer, etc.) until they are pulled from the segregated area and consumed by the Company’s customer, revenue is recognized upon consumption.  For tooling services, the Company’s performance obligation is satisfied at the point in time when the customer takes possession of dies and/ or molds.  For engineering, design, and testing services, the Company’s performance obligations are satisfied over time as the respective services are rendered as its customers simultaneously derive value from the Company’s performance.  From the time that a customer purchase order is received and contract is established, the Company’s performance obligations are typically fulfilled within a few weeks.  The Company does not have any performance obligations that require more than one year to fulfill.



Each customer purchase order sets forth the transaction price for the products and services purchased under that arrangement.  The Company evaluates the credit worthiness of its customers and exercises judgment to recognize revenue based upon the amount the Company expects to be paid for each sales transaction it enters into with its customers.  Some customer arrangements include variable consideration, such as volume rebates, some of which depend upon the Company’s customers meeting specified performance criteria, such as a purchasing level over a period of time.  The Company exercises judgment to estimate the most likely amount of variable consideration at each reporting date.



The Company’s typical payment terms are 30 days and its sales arrangements do not contain any significant financing component for its customers.  The Company’s customer arrangements do not generate contract assets or liabilities that are material to the consolidated financial statements.  The Company generally provides a warranty for workmanship, unless the assembly was designed by the Company, in which case it warrants assembly/design.  The Company assembles and tests assemblies based on customers’ specifications prior to shipment.  Historically, the amount of returns for

workmanship issues has been de minimis under the Company’s standard or extended warranties.  The Company does not provide its customers the option to purchase additional warranties and, therefore, the Company’s warranties are not considered a separate service or performance obligation.



The Company utilized the practical expedient to treat shipping and handling activities after the customer obtains control as fulfillment activities.  The Company records shipping and handling costs as selling and administrative expenses and costs are accrued when revenue is recognized.  Customers are typically invoiced for shipping costs and such amounts are included in net sales.



The Company pays sales commissions to its sales representatives which may be considered as incremental costs to obtain a contract. However, since the recoverability period is less than one year, the Company utilized the practical expedient provided by the new revenue recognition accounting standard that allows an entity to expense the costs of obtaining a contract as incurred.



During the first nine months of fiscal 2019, no revenues were recognized from performance obligations satisfied or partially satisfied in previous periods and no amounts were allocated to performance obligations that remain unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied at January 31, 2019.  The Company is electing not to disclose the value of the remaining unsatisfied performance obligation with a duration of one year or less as permitted by the practical expedient in ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.  The Company had no material remaining unsatisfied performance obligations as of January 31, 2019 with expected duration of greater than one year.

Income Tax - The Company’s income tax expense, deferred tax assets and liabilities and reserves for unrecognized tax benefits reflect management’s best assessment of estimated future taxes to be paid.  The Company is subject to income taxes in both the U.S. and several foreign jurisdictions.  Significant judgments and estimates by management are required in determining the consolidated income tax expense assessment.



Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities, and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.  In evaluating the Company’s ability to recover its deferred tax assets within the jurisdiction from which they arise, the

Company considers all available positive and negative evidence, including scheduled reversals of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, tax planning strategies and recent financial operations.  In projecting future taxable income, the Company begins with historical results and changes in accounting policies, and incorporates assumptions including the amount of future state, federal and foreign pre-tax operating income, the reversal of temporary differences, and the implementation of feasible and prudent tax planning strategies.  These assumptions require significant judgment and estimates by management about the forecasts of future taxable income and are consistent with the plans and estimates the Company uses to manage the underlying businesses.  In evaluating the objective evidence that historical results provide, the Company considers three years of cumulative operating income and/or loss.  Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred income tax assets to an amount more likely than not to be realized.  The Company’s valuation allowance was $1,020,371 and $78,100 as of January 31, 2019 and April 30, 2018, respectively.



New Accounting Standards:



In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" (Topic 606) which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in ASC 605, “Revenue Recognition”.  The guidance requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to a customer, and replaces most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP. The Company adopted the ASU on May 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective transition method. Under the modified retrospective transition method, the cumulative effect of applying ASC 606 to all contracts that are not completed as of the date of adoption is recorded as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings (if applicable) while the comparative periods are not restated and continue to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.  The Company has determined that revenue from contracts with customers under the new revenue recognition standard is the same as under prior accounting standards. Accordingly, the Company did not record an adjustment to the beginning balance of retained earnings as a result of adopting ASC 606. 



In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases”. The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement.  The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for capital leases and operating leases existing at, or entered into as of the effective date of the standard, with certain practical expedients available.  In order to evaluate the impact of ASU No. 2016-02, the Company has initiated the process of assessing critical components of this new guidance and the potential impact that the guidance will have on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.  This evaluation process includes a review of the Company's leasing contracts and an assessment of the completeness of the Company's lease population.  The Company is also assessing the need for potential changes to its business processes, systems and controls to support the adoption of the new standard.  Based upon the assessment to date, the Company believes that a key change upon adoption of the lease standard will be the recognition of leased assets and liabilities on its balance sheet but has not yet determined the impact on its results of operations or statement of cash flows.

Note G - Critical Accounting Policies - Continued



In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” ASU 2016-13 introduces a new forward-looking approach, based on expected losses, to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables. The estimate of expected credit losses will require entities to incorporate considerations of historical information, current information and reasonable and supportable forecasts.  This ASU also expands the disclosure requirements to enable users of financial statements to understand the entity’s assumptions, models and methods for estimating expected credit losses. For public business entities, ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and the guidance is to be applied using the modified-retrospective approach. Earlier adoption is permitted for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the new guidance and has not determined the impact this ASU may have on its consolidated financial statements.



On May 1, 2018, the Company adopted the guidance contained in ASU 2016 -15, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments”.   The amendments in ASU 2016-15 are applied using a retrospective transition method to each period presented.  The Company has evaluated each of the eight specific issues addressed by ASU 2016-15.   During the year ended April 30, 2018 the Company received cash settlement of insurance claims related to equipment damaged by a fire and including replacement of inventory and clean-up costs at one of its subsidiaries.    The Company has classified these receipts as cash flows from operating activities in its annual and interim statements of cash flows for the year ended April 30, 2018.  The Company reclassified $251,395 of cash receipts related to this insurance settlement from cash flows from operations to cash flows from investing activities in its statements of cash flows for the nine month period ended January 31, 2018.



In January 2018, the FASB released guidance on the accounting for tax on the Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (“GILTI”) provisions of the Tax Act.  The GILTI provisions impose a tax on foreign income in excess of a deemed return on tangible assets of foreign corporations. The Company elects to treat any potential GILTI inclusions as a period cost.



In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, “Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.” The guidance permits entities to reclassify tax effects stranded in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income as a result of tax reform to retained earnings. This new guidance is effective for annual and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted in annual and interim periods and can be applied retrospectively or in the period of adoption. The Company adopted this ASU in the first quarter of its current fiscal year and had no impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Note H - Related Parties



In March, 2015, two of the Company’s executive officers invested in a start-up customer, Petzila, Inc. (“Petzila”).  The executive officers’ investments constituted less than 2% (individually and in aggregate) of the outstanding beneficial ownership of Petzila, according to information provided by Petzila to the executive officers. 



On April 30, 2018 the Company foreclosed on its security interest that consisted of an outstanding note receivable of $2,117,500 and account receivable of $1,535,300 and held a public sale of the assets in accordance with the requirements of Article 9 of the California Uniform Commercial Code.  The Company acquired all of the assets of Petzila as the winning bidder at the public sale by a credit bid of $3,500,000, the aggregate amount of Petzila’s liability to the company.



Concurrent with the foreclosure sale, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Wagz, Inc. (Wagz), an unrelated party, whereby the Company sold the assets to Wagz for $350,000 cash, 600,000 shares of Wagz common stock and an earn-out based on sales by Wagz generated from use of the assets through July 31, 2022.  The earn-out is $6.00 per unit of a product specified in the asset purchase agreement and any upgrade to such product.



Accordingly, the Company recognized the fair value of the assets received from Wagz and derecognized the receivables from Petzila.  The fair value of the assets received from Wagz was approximately $950,000; therefore, the Company recognized a loss of $2,509,423 in its consolidated statement of operations for the year ended April 30, 2018.



The fair value of the non-cash consideration consisted of $600,000 for the 600,000 shares of Wagz common stock which is recorded within other assets.  The Company determined the fair value of the equity using the price per common share received by Wagz in a recent financing transaction, a level 3 input.  The Company did not assign any value to the earn-out because any receipts from the earn-out are highly uncertain and contingent upon Wagz selling the product specified in the asset purchase agreement between the Company and Wagz.  There was no change in the fair value of the common stock and $276 and $91,854 was recognized for the earn-out during the three and nine month periods ended January 31, 2019, respectively.

Overview:



The Company operates in one business segment as an independent provider of EMS, which includes printed circuit board assemblies and completely assembled (box-build) electronic products.  In connection with the production of assembled products, the Company also provides services to its customers, including (1) automatic and manual assembly and testing of products; (2) material sourcing and procurement; (3) manufacturing and test engineering support; (4) design services; (5) warehousing and distribution services; and (6) assistance in obtaining product approval from governmental and other regulatory bodies.  The Company provides these manufacturing services through an international network of facilities located in the United States, Mexico, China, Vietnam and Taiwan.



The Company relies on numerous third-party suppliers for components used in the Company’s production process.  Certain of these components are available only from single-sources or a limited number of suppliers.  In addition, a customer’s specifications may require the Company to obtain components from a single-source or a small number of suppliers.  The loss of any such suppliers could have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations.  Further, the Company could operate at a cost disadvantage compared to competitors who have greater direct buying power from suppliers.  The Company does not enter into long-term purchase agreements with major or single-source suppliers.  The Company believes that short-term purchase orders with its suppliers provides flexibility, given that the Company’s orders are based on the changing needs of its customers.



Sales can be a misleading indicator of the Company’s financial performance.  Sales levels can vary considerably among customers and products depending on the type of services (turnkey versus consignment) rendered by the Company and the demand by customers.  Consignment orders require the Company to perform manufacturing services on components and other materials supplied by a customer, and the Company charges only for its labor, overhead and manufacturing costs, plus a profit.  In the case of turnkey orders, the Company provides, in addition to manufacturing services, the components and other materials used in assembly.  Turnkey contracts, in general, have a higher dollar volume of sales for each given assembly, owing to inclusion of the cost of components and other materials in net sales and cost of goods sold.  Variations in the number of turnkey orders compared to consignment orders can lead to significant fluctuations in the Company’s revenue and gross margin levels.  Consignment orders accounted for less than 1% of the Company’s revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. 



The Company’s international footprint provides our customers with flexibility within the Company to manufacture in China, Mexico, Vietnam or the U.S.  We believe this strategy will continue to serve the Company well as its customers continuously evaluate their supply chain strategies.



The trade dispute between the United States and China has continued and has negatively impacted the Company’s results.  Customers continue to miss projections with many of them linking their reduced requirements to the trade dispute and associated tariffs.  The tariffs impact cash flow, increase overhead costs and continue to drive customers to look at alternative supply chain solutions which creates inefficiencies.  The trade war has created significant uncertainty regarding short-term plans with the Company’s customers on items such as new program launches. In conjunction with the issues associated with the trade war with China, the new Mexican administration did increase the nationwide compensation structure / minimum wage effective January 1, 2019.  This change created some short-term increased costs and will continue to have a negative effect on the Company’s cost structure. The Company has addressed these issues and required price increases where necessary with customers.  Some discussions are complete and others are expected to be complete in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2019.

While the year has been difficult due to external issues and resultant revenue misses, the Company has been able to manage much of the volatility.  Based on its current backlog for the fourth quarter, the Company should see revenue increase compared to the third fiscal quarter of 2019 and the Company expects that trend to continue.  While the Company is optimistic regarding the current backlog, the trade war with China will continue to weigh heavily on the Company short-term.  



Issues remain in the component marketplace, including component availability, lead times, deliveries and price increases, but they are fewer and farther between. In fact, for some component classes lead times have shortened.

Net Sales



Net sales increased for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 to $68,852,050 from $65,733,723 for the three month period ended January 31, 2018.  Net sales increased for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 to $217,267,198 from $209,917,090 for the same period in the prior year.  Sales volume increased for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 as compared to the prior year in the consumer electronics, industrial electronics and medical/life science marketplaces.  Sales volume increased for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 as compared to the prior year in the consumer electronics, industrial electronics and medical/life science marketplaces.  Sales in the first nine months increased due to increasing demand from existing and new customers.



Gross Profit



Gross profit dollars decreased during the three month period ended January 31, 2019 to $5,529,120 or 8.0% of net sales compared to $5,897,340 or 9.0% of net sales for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Gross profit decreased for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 to $18,012,261 or 8.3% of net sales compared to $19,757,962 or 9.4% of net sales for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The decrease in gross profit for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 was primarily the result of margin pressures from both customers and vendors and product mix.

Selling and Administrative Expenses



Selling and administrative expenses decreased to $5,539,831 or 8.0% of net sales for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to $5,637,680 or 8.6% of net sales for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The net decrease in selling and administrative expenses for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 was driven by decreases in legal fees and miscellaneous taxes.  The decrease in the foregoing selling and administrative expenses was partially offset by an increase in general office salaries, general insurance and financing fees.  Selling and administrative expenses increased to $17,291,102 or 8.0% of net sales for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to $17,192,099 or 8.2% of net sales for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The net increase in selling and administrative expenses for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 was driven by increases in general office salaries, general insurance, financing fees, accounting professional fees and other professional fees.  The increase in the foregoing selling and administrative expenses was partially offset by a decrease in legal professional fees and bonus expense. 



Interest Expense



Interest expense increased to $627,060 for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to $423,584 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Interest expense increased to $1,783,408 for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to $1,077,654 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The increase in interest expense for the three and nine month periods ended January 31, 2019 was due to increased loan obligations and higher interest rates compared to the same period in the prior year.  Interest expense for future quarters may fluctuate depending on interest rates and borrowings levels.



Income Tax Expense



The income tax benefit was $5,607 for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to an income tax benefit of $147,210 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The Company’s effective tax rate was 0.93% and 127.0% for the quarters ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The income tax expense was $923,379 for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to an income tax expense of $466,092 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The Company’s effective tax rate was (100.1)% and 28.8% for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The decrease in income tax benefit for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to the same period in the previous year as well as the respective change in the effective tax rate for the same period is due to operating losses recognized in China and Vietnam on which no tax benefit was recorded due to full valuation allowances for those jurisdictions.   The increase in income tax expense for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to the same period in the previous year as well as the respective change in the effective tax rate for the same period is the result of the valuation allowance of $942,271 established on certain deferred tax assets related to foreign net operating loss carryforwards that more likely than not will not be realized based on projected income in those jurisdictions, the impact of foreign currency remeasurement and the impact of changes in the U.S. tax rates as a result of Tax Reform.

Net Income



Net income decreased to a loss of $595,526 for the three month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to net income of $31,338 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Net income decreased to a net loss of $1,846,074 for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 compared to net income of $1,150,335 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Basic and diluted loss per share for the third quarter of 2019 were $0.14, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.01 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Basic and diluted loss per share for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 were $0.44, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.27 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The decreases in net income and earnings per share are due to the results of operations described above, mainly from a decrease in gross profit and an increase in income tax expense.



Liquidity and Capital Resources:



Operating Activities.



Cash flow used in operating activities was $4,878,653 for the nine months ended January 31, 2019

During the first nine months of fiscal year 2019, cash flow used in operating activities was primarily the result of an increase in accounts receivable in the amount of $2,918,694, an increase in inventory of $8,487,234, a decrease in accrued expenses and wages of $619,335 and the reported net loss.  The increase in accounts receivable is the result of increased sales and the timing of payments.  The increase in inventory is primarily the result of soft demand by one of the Company’s largest customers. Discussions are under way with the customer and the Company expects a positive resolution by the end of the fourth fiscal quarter of 2019.  Cash flow used in operating activities was partially offset by the result of an increase in accounts payable.



Cash flow used in operating activities was $7,489,377 for the nine months ended January 31, 2018During the first nine months of fiscal year 2018, cash flow used in operating activities was primarily the result of an increase in inventory in the amount of $12,686,282, an increase of refundable and prepaid income taxes of $1,445,881 and a decrease in accrued expenses and wages of $1,354,361.  Further, capacity issues in the component industry made it difficult to obtain some components to complete assemblies for shipping.  The increase in inventory was the result of an increase in customer orders and in some cases orders being pushed out.  Cash flow used in operating activities was partially offset by the result of an increase in accounts payable, decrease in prepaid expenses and other and net income excluding the non-cash effects of depreciation and amortization.

Other



The Company provides funds for salaries, wages, overhead and capital expenditure items as necessary to operate its wholly-owned Mexican, Vietnam and Chinese subsidiaries and the Taiwan international procurement office.  The Company provides funding, as needed, in U.S. dollars, which are exchanged for Pesos, Dong, Renminbi, and New Taiwan dollars.  The fluctuation of currencies from time to time, without an equal or greater increase in inflation, could have a material impact on the financial results of the Company.    The impact of currency fluctuation for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 resulted in a foreign currency transaction loss of $379,461 compared to a foreign currency transaction gain of approximately $119,289 for the same period in the prior year.  Foreign currency gains or losses are recorded in the cost of products sold.  During the first nine months of fiscal year 2019, the Company’s U.S. operations paid approximately $40,390,000 to its foreign subsidiaries for services provided.



Except for the impact of the Tax Act, the Company has not changed its plans to indefinitely reinvest the earnings of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries.  The cumulative amount of unremitted earnings for which U.S. income taxes have not been recorded is $9,971,000 as of January 31, 2019



The Company anticipates that its credit facilities, expected future cash flow from operations and leasing resources are adequate to meet its working capital requirements and fund capital expenditures for the next 12 months. However, in the event customers continue to delay orders or future payments are not made timely, the Company desires to expand its operations, its business grows more rapidly than expected, or the current economic climate deteriorates, additional financing resources may be necessary. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain equity or debt financing at acceptable terms, or at all, in the future.  There is no assurance that the Company will be able to retain or renew its credit agreements in the future, or that any retention or renewal will be on the same terms as currently exist.



The impact of inflation on the Company’s net sales, revenues and income from operations for the past two fiscal years has been minimal.



Off-balance Sheet Transactions:



The Company has no off-balance sheet transactions.
