Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

1SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Overview of Business

 

We are primarily a supplier of original designed and manufactured (ODM) electronic components (“ODM Components”) with our product offerings ranging from discrete semiconductors through small electronic devices. Our products include value-added engineering and turn-key solutions, focusing on providing contract electronic manufacturers (CEMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with ODM products for their multi-year turn-key projects (“ODM Projects”). We also distribute brand name electronic components with a vast inventory available on hand. We are incorporated in California and were originally formed in 1989. We maintain a majority-owned subsidiary in Mexico (our Mexico sales and distribution operations closed in May 2013 and final Mexico entity closure planned for the third quarter of 2020) and divisions in Taiwan and China which were established in 1998, 1996 and 2005, respectively.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all wholly owned divisions, including its 60% majority-owned subsidiary, Taitron Components Mexico, S.A. de C.V. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal recurring nature and considered necessary for a fair presentation of its financial condition and results of operations for the interim periods presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been included. Operating results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of financial results for the full year. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. In preparing these financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates and assumptions included in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements relate to the allowance for sales returns, doubtful accounts, inventory reserves, accrued liabilities and deferred income taxes.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes”. The pronouncement simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”. The pronouncement also improves consistent application of and simplifies GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. ASU 2019-12 will be effective for us beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, with early adoption permitted. We are still evaluating the impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Revenue recognition

 

Revenue is recognized at the point at which control of the underlying products are transferred to the customer. Satisfaction of our performance obligations occur upon the transfer of control of products, either from our facilities or directly from suppliers to customers. We consider customer purchase orders to be the contracts with a customer. All revenue is generated from contracts with customers.

 

In determining the transaction price, we evaluate whether the price is subject to refund or adjustment to determine the net consideration to which we expect to receive.

 

5

 

Taxes assessed by a governmental authority on revenue-producing transactions are excluded from revenue.

 

Shipping and handling costs associated with outbound freight after control over a product has transferred to a customer are accounted for as fulfillment costs and are included in cost of products sold.

 

Based upon the nature of our contracts with customers and our performance obligations within those contracts, we have no contract assets or liabilities as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Nature of products

 

We are primarily a supplier of original designed and manufactured (ODM) products that include value-added engineering and turn-key solutions. The following is a description of major products lines from which we generate our revenue:

 

ODM Projects - Our custom made small devices for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and contract electronic manufacturers (CEMs) in their multi-year turn-key projects and marketed in specific industries such as: wild animal feeders, timers for DC motors, public street light controllers, and battery chargers.

 

ODM Components - Our private labeled electronic components.

 

Distribution Components - Our name brand electronic components.

2INVENTORY

 

Inventory, consisting principally of products held for resale, is recorded at the lower of cost (determined using the first in-first out method) and net realizable value. We had inventory balances in the amount of $3,719,000 and $3,588,000 at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, which is presented net of valuation allowances of $6,144,000 and $5,893,000, respectively. We evaluate inventories to identify excess, high-cost, slow-moving or other factors rendering inventories as unmarketable at normal profit margins. Due to the complexity of managing and maintaining a large inventory of product offerings, estimates are made regarding adjustments to the carrying values of inventories. Based on our assumptions about future demand and market conditions, inventories are carried at the lower of cost and net realizable value. If our assumptions about future demand change, or market conditions are less favorable than those projected, additional write-downs of inventories or valuation allowances may be required. In any case, actual amounts could be different from those estimated.

Balance at June 30, 2020

  $ 186,000     $ 20,000     $ 206,000  

 

Our $186,000 investment in securities as of June 30, 2020 relates to 317,428 shares of preferred convertible debt of Zowie Technology Corporation (Taipei Hsien, Taiwan), a supplier of electronic component products, with our option after three (3) years to convert into common stock or refundable bearing 7% annual interest rate. Our investment represents approximately 7.9% of their total outstanding shares, although we do not have significant influence or control. This investment is accounted for under the cost (plus impairment) basis of accounting, however when facts and circumstances indicate that the carrying value of this asset may not be recoverable, we recognize an impairment loss. The impairment loss recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the estimated fair value. In the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2019, based on our estimated valuation assessment, we recognized an impairment loss of $193,000.

 

4 – SHARE BASED COMPENSATION

 

Accounting for stock options issued to employees measures the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award. That cost is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award. Outstanding options to purchase Class A common stock (“the Options”) vest in three (3) equal annual installments beginning one (1) year from the date of grant and are subject to termination provisions as defined in our 2005 Stock Incentive Plan and 2018 Omnibus Incentive Plan (collectively referred to as “the Plans”). The Options activity during the six months ended June 30, 2020 is as follows:

 

   

Number of Shares

   

Weighted Average Exercise Price

   

Weighted Average Years Remaining Contractual Term

   

Aggregate Intrinsic Value

 
                                 

Outstanding at December 31, 2019

    381,500     $ 1.65       5.6     $ 429,000  

Exercised

    (50,000 )     1.18                  

Forfeited

    (55,000 )     1.36                  

Outstanding at June 30, 2020

    276,500     $ 1.80       5.5     $ 220,000  

Exercisable at June 30, 2020

    96,000     $ 1.44       4.3     $ 81,000  

 

At June 30, 2020, the range of individual outstanding weighted average exercise prices was $1.02 to $2.68 and the unamortized compensation expense was approximately $46,000.

 

5LONG-TERM DEBT

 

On April 27, 2020 we received loan proceeds in the amount of $163,200 from the Small Business Administration under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). The PPP, established as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), provides for loans to qualifying businesses for amounts up to 2.5 times of the average monthly payroll expenses of the qualifying business. The loans and accrued interest are forgivable after twenty-four (24) weeks as long as the loan proceeds are used for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, and maintains its payroll levels. The amount of loan forgiveness may be reduced if we terminate, lay-off or furlough employees or reduce salaries during the period.

 

7

 

Any unforgiven portion of the PPP loan is payable over two (2) years at an interest rate of 1%, with a deferral of payments for the first six (6) months. We intend to use the proceeds for purposes consistent with the PPP. While we currently believe that our use of the loan proceeds will meet the conditions for forgiveness of the loan, we cannot ensure that we will receive forgiveness of the loan, in whole or in part.

 

6 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Inventory Purchasing

Outstanding commitments to purchase inventory from suppliers aggregated approximately $1,800,000 as of June 30, 2020.

 

7SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

We have evaluated subsequent events through August 14, 2020, the date on which the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements were available to be issued. Based upon its evaluation, management has determined that no subsequent events have occurred that would require recognition in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements or disclosures in the notes thereto, except as follows:

 

During the first and second quarters of 2020, we experienced increased costs associated with our logistics operations, and shipping delays. Our suppliers and customers were also negatively impacted, including delays in the production and export of products. The impact to our customers may also result in an increase in past due accounts receivable. To mitigate the impact of novel coronavirus 2019 (“COVID-19”), we have taken measures to promote the safety and security of our employees while complying with various government mandates, including work-from-home arrangements and social-distancing initiatives to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on our results of operations and financial performance for the first and second quarters of 2020, and we expect it will continue to have a negative impact on our revenue, earnings and cash flows in the third quarter of 2020 and possibly into 2021. Accordingly, current results and financial condition discussed herein may not be indicative of future operating results and trends.

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

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements, including the related notes, appearing in Item 1 of Part 1 of this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, as well as our most recent annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company. Forward-looking statements usually are denoted by words or phrases such as “believes,” “expects,” “projects,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “will likely result” or similar expressions. We wish to caution readers that all forward-looking statements are necessarily speculative and not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made, and to advise readers that actual results could vary due to a variety of risks and uncertainties, including the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update forward-looking statements.

 

References to “Taitron,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” and “us” refer to Taitron Components Incorporated and its wholly owned and majority-owned subsidiaries, unless the context otherwise requires.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Use of Estimates - Management has made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare our condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These estimates have a significant impact on our valuation and reserve accounts relating to the allowance for sales returns, doubtful accounts, inventory reserves and deferred income taxes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

Revenue Recognition – Revenue is recognized upon shipment of the products, which is when legal transfer of title occurs and control of the product is transferred to the customer. Reserves for sales allowances and customer returns are established based upon historical experience and our estimates of future returns. Sales returns for both the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $1,000 and for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $5,000 and $4,000, respectively. The allowance for sales returns and doubtful accounts at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 aggregated $19,000.

 

Inventory – Inventory, consisting principally of products held for resale, is recorded at the lower of cost (determined using the first in-first out method) and net realizable value. We had inventory balances in the amount of $3,719,000 and $3,588,000 at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, which is presented net of valuation allowances of $6,144,000 and $5,893,000, respectively. We evaluate inventories to identify excess, high-cost, slow-moving or other factors rendering inventories as unmarketable at normal profit margins. Due to the large number of transactions and the complexity of managing and maintaining a large inventory of product offerings, estimates are made regarding adjustments to the cost of inventories. If our assumptions about future demand change, or market conditions are less favorable than those projected, additional write-downs of inventories may be required. In any case, actual amounts could be different from those estimated.

 

Overview

 

We are primarily focused on supplying ODM products (custom made small devices) for our OEM and CEM customer’s multi-year turn-key projects. We also distribute ODM components (private labeled electronic components) and name brand electronic components.

 

Our core strategy has shifted to primarily focus on higher margin ODM Projects that require custom products designed for specific applications to OEM customers, and away from actively marketing our superstore strategy of maintaining a vast quantity of electronic components to fill customer orders immediately from available stock held in inventory. As a result, we expect our components inventory will be more passively marketed and distributed online for clearance through our internet sales portal, however at potentially lower rates due to the pricing pressures normally attributed with online shopping.

 

9

 

In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, we have classified inventory as a current asset in our June 30, 2020, condensed consolidated financial statements representing approximately 36.2% of current assets and 27% of total assets. However, if all or a substantial portion of the inventory was required to be immediately liquidated, the inventory would not be as readily marketable or liquid as other items included or classified as a current asset, such as cash. We cannot assure you that demand in the discrete semiconductor market will increase and that market conditions will improve. Therefore, it is possible that further declines in our carrying values of inventory may result.

 

Our gross profit margins are subject to a number of factors, including product demand, the relative strength of the U.S. dollar, provisions for inventory reserves, our ability to purchase inventory at favorable prices and our sales product mix.

 

Results of Operations

 

Significant Risks and Uncertainties

 

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus 2019 (“COVID-19”) outbreak to constitute a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” The COVID-19 outbreak is disrupting supply chains and affecting production and sales across a range of industries. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, and on March 13, 2020, the United States declared a national emergency with respect to COVID-19. The outbreak of COVID-19 has severely impacted global economic activity and caused significant volatility and negative pressure in financial markets. The global impact of the outbreak has been rapidly evolving and many countries, including the United States, have reacted by instituting quarantines, mandating business and school closures and restricting travel. The extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our operational and financial performance will depend on certain developments, including the duration and spread of the outbreak, impact on our customers, employees and vendors all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted. At this point, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact our financial condition or results of operations is uncertain.

 

During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we continued to experience increased costs associated with our logistics operations, and shipping delays. Our suppliers and customers were also negatively impacted, including delays in the production and export of products. The impact to our customers may also result in an increase in past due accounts receivable. To mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we have taken measures to promote the safety and security of our employees while complying with various government mandates, including work-from-home arrangements and social-distancing initiatives to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on our results of operations and financial performance for the second quarter of 2020, and we expect it will continue to have a negative impact on our revenue, earnings and cash flows in the third quarter of 2020 and possibly into 2021. Accordingly, current results and financial condition discussed herein may not be indicative of future operating results and trends. See the Risk Factors included in our Annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as well as the additional Risk Factor included in Part II—Item 1A of this quarterly report regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.

 

Second quarter of 2020 versus 2019.

 

Net sales in the second quarter of 2020 totaled $1,303,000 versus $1,772,000 in the comparable period for 2019, a decrease of $469,000 or 26.5% over the same period last year. The decrease was primarily driven by a decrease of ODM project sales volume.

 

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $619,000 versus $835,000 in the comparable period for 2019, and gross margin percentage of net sales was 47.5% in the second quarter of 2020 versus 47.1% in the comparable period for 2019.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2020 totaled $519,000 versus $616,000 in the comparable period for 2019. The $97,000 decrease was primarily driven by lower salaries and personnel related costs.

 

Other income, net of other expense, in the second quarter of 2020 was $10,000 versus $31,000 in the comparable period for 2019. Other income was primarily from rental income of excess office space at our headquarters in Valencia, California and our Shanghai, China office.

 

Income tax provision was $1,000 for the both the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, as we do not expect significant taxable income for the year ending December 31, 2020.

 

10

 

Net income was $119,000 for the second quarter of 2020 versus $256,000 in the comparable period for 2019, a decrease of $137,000 resulting from the reasons discussed above.

 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 versus Six Months Ended June 30, 2019.

 

Net sales in the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $2,775,000 versus $3,156,000 in the comparable period for 2019, a decrease of $381,000 or 12.1% over the same period last year. The decrease was driven by a decrease of ODM project sales volume.

 

Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $1,290,000 versus $1,518,000 in the comparable period for 2019, and gross margin percentage of net sales was approximately 46.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 48.1% for 2019, respectively.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the six months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $1,117,000 versus $1,146,000 in the comparable period for 2019, a decrease of $29,000 over the same period last year. The $29,000 decrease was primarily driven by lower salaries and personnel related costs.

 

Other income, net of other expenses, in the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $17,000 versus $56,000 in the comparable period for 2019. Other income was primarily from rental income of excess office space at our headquarters in Valencia, California and our Shanghai, China office.

 

Income tax provision was $2,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2019, as we do not expect significant taxable income for the year ending December 31, 2020.

 

Net income was $209,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 versus $440,000 in the comparable period for 2019, a decrease of $231,000 resulting from the reasons discussed above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We historically have satisfied our liquidity requirements through cash generated from operations, short-term commercial loans, subordinated related party promissory notes and issuance of equity securities.

 

Cash flows provided by operating activities were $761,000 as opposed to $3,000 used for in the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The increase of $764,000 in cash flows provided by operations compared with the prior period resulted from changes in operating assets and liabilities, primarily from accounts receivable and accounts payable compared to the prior period.

 

Cash flows used for investing activities were $7,000 and $191,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease of $184,000 compared with the prior period was primarily due to our $186,000 investment in convertible securities (see Note 3).

 

Cash flows used for financing activities were $182,000 and $217,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease of $35,000 compared with the prior period was primarily due to the loan proceeds (see Note 5) and stock options exercised, offset by increased cash dividend payments of $61,000. The increase to our cash dividends was based upon our November 1, 2019 announcement that our quarterly cash dividends increased by 16.7% from $0.03 per share to $0.035 per share.

 

We believe that funds generated from operations, existing cash balances and, if necessary, related party short-term loans, are likely to be sufficient to finance our working capital and capital expenditure requirements for the foreseeable future. If these funds are not sufficient, we may secure new sources of asset-based lending on accounts receivables or issue debt or equity securities. Otherwise, we may need to liquidate assets to generate the necessary working capital.

 

Inventory is included and classified as a current asset. As of June 30, 2020, inventory represented approximately 36.2% of current assets and 27% of total assets. However, it is likely to take over one (1) year for the inventory to turn and therefore is likely not saleable within this time frame. Hence, inventory would not be as readily marketable or liquid as other items included in current assets, such as cash.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30, 2020, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk. - Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures 

Our management has evaluated, under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive and principal financial officers, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings. 

 

In the ordinary course of business, we may become involved in legal proceedings from time to time. As of the date of this report, we are not aware of any material pending legal proceedings.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

The discussion of our business and operations should be read together with the risk factor set forth below and the risk factors contained in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, which describe various risks and uncertainties to which we are or may become subject. These risks and uncertainties have the potential to affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, strategies or prospects in a material and adverse manner. Other than the additional risk factor set forth below, as of August 14, 2020, there have been no material changes to the risk factors set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains, impacted the operations of our business partners and negatively impacted our operations and financial results.

 

The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains, constrained workforce participation due to travel restrictions and quarantine orders, disrupted logistics and distribution systems, and created significant volatility and disruption of financial markets. As a result, this pandemic has negatively impacted our operations and those of our customers and suppliers, and heightened the risks of customer bankruptcies, customer delayed payments, restrictions on access to financial markets and other risk factors described in our Annual Report. While we have not yet experienced any material disruption to our supply chain and our headquarters and main distribution warehouse remains operational under business continuity plans, we have experienced increased logistics costs, lower product demand, longer lead times, and shipping delays. To mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we have implemented business continuity plans, with a focus on employee safety and mitigation of business disruptions. As the scope and duration of the COVID-19 outbreak is unknown and the extent of its economic impact continues to evolve globally, there is significant uncertainty related to the ultimate impact that it will have on our business, our employees, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Tariffs may result in increased prices and could adversely affect the company's business and results of operations.

 

Recently, the U.S. government imposed tariffs on certain products imported into the U.S. and the Chinese government imposed tariffs on certain products imported into China, which have increased the prices of many of the products that the company purchases from its suppliers. The tariffs, along with any additional tariffs or trade restrictions that may be implemented by the U.S., China or other countries, could result in further increased prices. While the company intends to pass price increases on to its customers, the effect of tariffs on prices may impact sales and results of operations. Retaliatory tariffs imposed by other countries on U.S. goods have not yet had a significant impact, but the company cannot predict further developments. The tariffs and the additional operational costs incurred in minimizing the number of products subject to the tariffs could adversely affect the operating profits of the company and customer demand for certain products which could have an adverse effect on the company’s business and results of operations.
