NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Principles and Policies

 

Basis of Presentation and Preparation

 

Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., a New Jersey corporation, together with its subsidiaries (“we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company”), is a global designer and manufacturer of advanced radio frequency (“RF”) and microwave components, modules, systems and instruments and currently markets its products and services worldwide under the Boonton, Microlab, Noisecom and CommAgility brands. Serving the wireless, telecommunication, satellite, military, aerospace, and semiconductor industries, Wireless Telecom Group products enable innovation across a wide range of traditional and emerging wireless technologies. With a unique set of high-performance products including peak power meters, signal analyzers, signal processing modules, long-term evolution (“LTE”) physical layer (“PHY”) and stack software, power splitters and combiners, global positioning system (“GPS”) splitters and repeaters, public safety monitors, noise sources, and programmable noise generators, Wireless Telecom Group supports the development, testing, and deployment of wireless technologies around the globe.

 

The consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019, the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income/(loss) for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the consolidated statements of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 and the consolidated statement of shareholders’ equity for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 have been prepared by the Company without audit. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., doing business as and operating under the trade name, Noisecom, and its wholly owned subsidiaries including Boonton Electronics Corporation (“Boonton”), Microlab/FXR LLC (“Microlab”), Wireless Telecommunications Ltd. and CommAgility Limited (“CommAgility”). All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company presents its operations in three reportable segments: (1) Network Solutions, (2) Test and Measurement and (3) Embedded Solutions. The Network Solutions segment is comprised of the operations of Microlab. The Test and Measurement segment is comprised of the operations of Boonton and Noisecom. The Embedded Solutions segment is comprised of the operations of CommAgility.

 

It is suggested that these interim consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and the notes thereto, included in the Company’s latest annual report (Form 10-K).

 

The Company’s fiscal periods are based on the calendar year. Except as otherwise specified, references to “first quarter(s)” or “three months” indicate the Company’s fiscal periods ending March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018, and references to “year-end” indicate the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Consolidated Financial Statements

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements referred to above contain all necessary adjustments, consisting of normal accruals and recurring entries, which are necessary to fairly present the Company’s results for the interim periods being presented.

 

The accounting policies followed by the Company are set forth in Note 1 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Specific reference is made to that report since certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) have been reduced for interim periods in accordance with SEC rules.

 

The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2019.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation.

Concentration Risk

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and trade accounts receivable. The majority of the Company’s cash balance is held outside of the United States.

 

Credit evaluations are performed on customers requiring credit over a certain amount. Credit risk is mitigated to a lesser extent through collateral such as letters of credit, bank guarantees or payment terms like cash in advance.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, one customer accounted for approximately 31% and 16% of the Company’s consolidated revenues, respectively. At March 31, 2019 and 2018, one customer accounted for 40% and 23% of consolidated gross accounts receivable, respectively.

 

Subsequent Events

 

Management has evaluated subsequent events and determined that there were no subsequent events or transactions requiring recognition or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements, and the notes thereto, through the date the financial statements were issued.

 

NOTE 2 – Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which created new accounting and reporting guidelines for leasing arrangements. The new guidance requires organizations that lease assets to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet related to the rights and obligations created by those leases, regardless of whether they are classified as finance or operating leases. Consistent with current guidance, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The guidance also requires new disclosures to help financial statement users better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases.

 

The Company adopted the requirements of the new standard effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition method, which applies the provisions of the standard at the effective date without adjustment to the comparative periods presented. The Company adopted the following practical expedients and elected the following accounting policies related to this standard:

 

·Carry forward of historical lease classifications and accounting treatment;
·Short-term lease accounting policy election allowing lessees to not recognize right-of-use assets and liabilities for leases with a term of 12 months or less; and
·The option to not separate lease and non-lease components for certain equipment lease categories such as office printers and copiers.

 

Adoption of this standard resulted in the recognition of operating lease right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities of $1.9 million on the consolidated balance sheet as of January 1, 2019. The standard did not materially impact operating results or liquidity. Disclosures related to the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases are included in Note 3.

 

On June 20, 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU 2018-07 is intended to reduce cost and complexity and to improve financial reporting for share-based payments issued to nonemployees. This ASU expands the scope of ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation, which currently only includes share-based payments issued to employees, to also include share-based payments issued to nonemployees for goods and services. Consequently, the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees and employees will be substantially aligned. ASU 2018-07 supersedes ASC Subtopic 505-50, Equity - Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. The amendments in this ASU are effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2019 and it did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

Except for the change in accounting policies for leases as a result of adopting Topic 842, there have been no other changes to our significant accounting policies as described in the 2018 Form 10-K that had a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related notes.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326). ASU 2016-13 changes the impairment model for most financial assets and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured as amortized cost. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company plans to adopt the standard effective January 1, 2020. We are currently in the process of evaluating the effects of this pronouncement on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement, Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820). ASU 2018-13 eliminates, modifies and adds disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. We are currently in the process of evaluating the effects of this pronouncement on our consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – Leases

 

The Company’s lease agreements consist of building leases for its operating locations and office equipment leases for printers and copiers with lease terms that range from less than 12 months to 8 years. At inception, the Company determines if an arrangement contains a lease and whether that lease meets the classification criteria of a finance or operating lease. The Company’s leases for office equipment such as printers and copiers contain lease and non-lease components (i.e. maintenance). The Company accounts for lease and non-lease components of office equipment as a single lease component.

 

All of the Company’s leases are operating leases and are presented as right of use lease asset, short term lease liability and long term lease liability on the consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019. These assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate. Short-term leases, which have an initial term of 12 months or less, are not recorded on the balance sheet.

 

Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term and is included in cost of revenues and general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income/(loss).

 

An initial right-of-use asset of $1.9 million was recognized as a non-cash asset addition with the adoption of the new lease accounting standard. Subsequent to adoption of the new standard there were no new right-of-use assets recognized during the first quarter of 2019. Cash paid for amounts included in the present value of operating lease liabilities was $0.1 million during the first quarter of 2019 and is included in operating cash flows.

 

Operating lease costs were $0.1 million during the first quarter of 2019. Right of use assets in the amount of $1.8 million are included in the consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019.

 

The following table presents information about the amount and timing of cash flows arising from the Company’s operating leases as of March 31, 2019.

NOTE 4 – Revenue

 

Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for promised goods or services. The Company’s performance obligations are satisfied either over time or at a point in time. Revenue from performance obligations that transferred at a point in time accounted for approximately 99% and 95% of the Company’s total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Nature of Products and Services

 

Hardware

 

The Company generally has one performance obligation in its arrangements involving the sales of radio frequency solutions in the Network Solutions segment, digital signal processing hardware in the Embedded Solutions segment and noise generators and components and power meter and analyzers in the Test and Measurement segment. When the terms of a contract include the transfer of multiple products, each distinct product is identified as a separate performance obligation. Generally, satisfaction occurs when control of the promised goods is transferred to the customer in exchange for consideration in an amount for which we expect to be entitled.  Generally, control is transferred when legal title of the asset moves from the Company to the customer. We sell our products to a customer based on a purchase order, and the shipping terms per each individual order are primarily used to satisfy the single performance obligation. However, in order to determine control has transferred to the customer, the Company also considers:

 

·when the Company has a present right to payment for the asset
·when the Company has transferred physical possession of the asset to the customer
·when the customer has the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the asset
·when the customer has accepted the asset

(UNAUDITED)

 

Software

 

Arrangements involving licenses of software in the Embedded Solutions segment may involve multiple performance obligations, most notably subsequent releases of the software. The Company has concluded that each software release in a multiple deliverable arrangement in the Embedded Solutions segment is a distinct performance obligation and, accordingly, transaction price is allocated to each release when the customer obtains control of the software.

 

Performance obligations that are not distinct at contract inception are combined. Specifically, with the Company’s sales of software, contracts that include customization may result in the combination of the customization services with the license as one distinct performance obligation and recognized over time. The duration of these performance obligations are typically one year or less.  

 

Services

 

Arrangements involving calibration and repair services in the Company’s Test and Measurement segment are generally considered a single performance obligation and are recognized as the services are rendered.

 

Shipping and Handling

 

Shipping and handling activities performed after the customer obtains control are accounted for as fulfillment activities and recognized as cost of revenues.

 

Significant Judgments

 

For the Company’s more complex software and services arrangements significant judgment is required in determining whether licenses and services are distinct performance obligations that should be accounted for separately, or are not distinct, and thus accounted for together. Further, in cases where we determine that performance obligations should be accounted for separately, judgment is required to determine the standalone selling price for each distinct performance obligation.

 

Certain of the Company shipments include a limited return right. In those cases the Company recognizes revenue net of expected returns.

 

Contract Balances

 

The timing of revenue recognition may differ from the timing of invoicing to customers and these timing differences result in contract assets or contract liabilities (deferred revenue) on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The Company records a contract asset when revenue is recognized prior to invoicing, or deferred revenue when revenue is recognized subsequent to invoicing. Contract assets are recorded in prepaid expenses and other current assets and were immaterial as of March 31, 2019 and $0.3 million as of December 31, 2018. Deferred revenue is $0.2 million and $0.1 million as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

 

Disaggregated Revenue

 

We disaggregate our revenue from contracts with customers by product family and geographic location for each of our segments as we believe it best depicts how the nature, timing and uncertainty of our revenue and cash flows are affected by economic factors. See details in the tables below (in thousands).

NOTE 5 – Acquisition of CommAgility

 

On February 17, 2017, Wireless Telecommunications, Ltd. (the “Acquisition Subsidiary”), a company incorporated in England and Wales which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., completed the acquisition of all the issued shares in CommAgility from CommAgility’s founders. The Acquisition was completed pursuant to the terms of a Share Purchase Agreement, dated February 17, 2017, and entered into by and among the Company, the Acquisition Subsidiary and the founders. The Company paid $11.3 million in cash on acquisition date and issued 3,487,528 shares of newly issued Company common stock (“Consideration Shares”) with an acquisition date fair value of $6.0 million. In addition to the acquisition date cash purchase price, the sellers were paid an additional $2.5 million in the form of deferred purchase price installments beginning in March 2017 through January 2019 and were paid an additional purchase price adjustment based on working capital and cash levels of $1.4 million. Lastly, the sellers earned $1.5 million in contingent consideration as a result of meeting certain financial targets for the year ended December 31, 2018. The contingent consideration was paid in March 2019. Approximately $0.7 million of the

12

WIRELESS TELECOM GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

contingent consideration payment is classified as cash used by operating activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the first quarter 2019 and approximately $0.8 million is classified as cash used for financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the first quarter 2019 in accordance with ASU 2016-15 Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”). Under ASU 2016-15 the portion of the cash payment up to the acquisition date fair value of the contingent consideration liability (including measurement period adjustments) is classified as a financing outflow, and the amounts paid in excess of the acquisition date fair value of that liability will be classified as operating outflows.

 

Pursuant to the Share Purchase Agreement, 2,092,516 of the Consideration Shares were subject to forfeiture and return to the Company if (a) 2017 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, generated by CommAgility was less than £2.4 million; or (b) 2018 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, generated by CommAgility was less than £2.4 million (in each case as determined by an audit of CommAgility conducted by the accountants of the Acquisition Subsidiary in accordance with the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement). In March 2018 all consideration shares which are valued at $3.6 million were forfeited as the 2017 EBITDA threshold was not achieved. The forfeited shares are recorded as treasury stock in the consolidated statement of shareholders’ equity as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

The total purchase price for the CommAgility acquisition, including the final contingent consideration payment, is $14.6 million which is net of cash acquired. There are no further purchase price obligations under the Stock Purchase Agreement as of March 31, 2019.

 

NOTE 6 – Income Taxes

 

The Company records deferred taxes in accordance with ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” ASC 740 requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company establishes a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company periodically assesses the value of its deferred tax assets and determines the necessity for a valuation allowance.

 

Realization of the Company’s deferred tax assets is dependent upon the Company generating sufficient taxable income in the appropriate tax jurisdictions in future years to obtain benefit from the reversal of net deductible temporary differences and from utilization of net operating losses. The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable is subject to adjustment in future periods if estimates of future taxable income are changed.

 

As of March 31, 2019 the Company’s deferred tax asset of $5.1 million is net of a valuation allowance of $6.7 million which is associated with the Company’s foreign net operating loss carryforward from an inactive foreign entity, state net operating loss carryforward and a state research and development credit.

 

The effective rate of income tax benefit of 28.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was higher than the statutory rates in the United States and United Kingdom primarily due to the impact of global intangible low-taxed income or “GILTI” related to our controlled foreign corporation offset by research and development deductions in the UK.

 

The effective rate of income tax provision of 13% for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was lower than the statutory rates in the United States and United Kingdom primarily due to research and development deductions in the United Kingdom and non-qualified stock option deductions offset by nondeductible expenses and U.S. state income taxes.

 

NOTE 7 – Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period and, when dilutive, potential shares from stock options using the treasury stock method, unvested restricted shares and the weighted-average number of restricted stock units outstanding for the period. Shares from stock options are included in the diluted earnings per share calculation only when options exercise prices are lower than the average market value of the common shares for the period presented. In periods with a net loss, the basic loss per share equals the diluted loss per share as all common stock equivalents are excluded from the per share calculation because they are anti-dilutive. In accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share”, the following table reconciles basic shares outstanding to fully diluted shares outstanding.

In connection with the acquisition of CommAgility, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A. (the “Lender”) on February 16, 2017 (the “Credit Facility”), which provided for a term loan in the aggregate principal amount of $0.8 million (the “Term Loan”) and an asset based revolving loan (the “Revolver”), which is subject to a Borrowing Base Calculation (as defined in the Credit Facility), of up to a maximum availability of $9.0 million (“Revolver Commitment Amount”). The borrowing base is calculated as 85% of eligible accounts receivable and inventory, as defined, subject to certain caps and limits. The borrowing base is calculated on a monthly basis. The proceeds of the term loan and revolver were used to finance the acquisition of CommAgility.

 

In connection with the issuance of the Credit Facility, the Company paid lender and legal fees of $0.2 million which were primarily related to the Revolver and are capitalized and presented as other current and non-current assets in the consolidated balance sheets. These costs are recognized as additional interest expense over the term of the related debt instrument using the straight line method which approximates the effective interest method.

WIRELESS TELECOM GROUP, INC.

The Company must repay the Term Loan in installments of $38,000 per quarter due on the first day of each fiscal quarter beginning April 1, 2017 and continuing until the term loan maturity date, on which the remaining balance is due in a final installment. The Term Loan and Revolver were both scheduled to mature on November 16, 2019. On February 26, 2019, the Company entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Credit Facility which extends the termination date of the Revolver from November 16, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

 

The Term and Revolver Loans bear interest at the LIBOR rate plus a margin. The margin on the outstanding balance of the Company’s Term Loans and Revolver Loans were fixed at 3.50% and 3.00% per annum, respectively, through September 30, 2017. Thereafter, the margins were subject to increase or decrease by Lender on the first day of each of the Borrowers’ fiscal quarters based upon the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Facility) as of the most recently ended fiscal quarter falling into one of three levels. If the Company’s Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio is greater than or equal to 1.25 to 1.00, a margin of 3.25% and 2.75%, respectively, is added to LIBOR rate with a step up to 3.50% and 3.00%, respectively, if the ratio is greater than or equal 1.00 to 1.00 but less than 1.25 to 1.00 and another step up to 3.75% and 3.25%, respectively, if the ratio is less than 1.00 to 1.00. The Company is also required to pay a commitment fee on the unused commitments under the Revolver at a rate equal to 0.50% per annum and early termination fee of (a) 2% of the Revolver Commitment Amount and Term Loan if termination occurs before the first anniversary of the Credit Facility or (b) 1% of the Revolver Commitment Amount and Term Loan if termination occurs after the first anniversary of the Credit Facility but before the second anniversary of the Credit Facility. The Company’s interest rate plus margin as of March 31, 2019 on the Credit Facility was 5.25% and 5.75% for the Revolver and Term Loan, respectively. The Company’s interest rate plus margin as of December 31, 2018 on the Credit Facility was 5.38% and 5.88% for the Revolver and Term Loan, respectively.

 

The Credit Facility is secured by liens on substantially all of the Company’s and its domestic subsidiaries’ assets including a pledge of 66 1/3% of the equity interests in the Company’s Foreign Subsidiaries (as defined in the Credit Facility). The Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants for a transaction of this type, including, among others, the provision of annual, quarterly and monthly financial statements and compliance certificates, maintenance of property, insurance, compliance with laws and environmental matters, restrictions on incurrence of indebtedness, granting of liens, making investments and acquisitions, paying dividends, entering into affiliate transactions and asset sales. Events of default under the Credit Facility include but are not limited to: failure to pay obligations when due, breach or failure of any covenant, insolvency or bankruptcy, materially misleading representations or warranties, occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Credit Facility) or occurrence of conditions that have a Material Adverse Effect (as defined in the Credit Facility).

 

As of March 31, 2019, and the date hereof, the Company is in compliance with the covenants of the Credit Facility.

 

NOTE 10 - Accounting for Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company’s results for the three month period ended March 31, 2019 includes $0.2 million related to stock based compensation expense. Such amounts have been included in the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income/(loss) within general and administrative expenses in operating expenses. The Company accounts for forfeitures when they occur.

 

Incentive Compensation Plan

 

In 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors and shareholders approved the 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Initial 2012 Plan”), which provides for the grant of equity, including restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, non-qualified stock options and incentive stock options in compliance with the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, to employees, officers, directors, consultants and advisors of the Company who are expected to contribute to the Company’s future growth and success. When originally approved, the Initial 2012 Plan provided for the grant of awards relating to 2 million shares of common stock, plus those shares subject to awards previously issued under the Company’s 2000 Stock Option Plan that expire, are canceled or are terminated after adoption of the Initial 2012 Plan without having been exercised in full and would have been available for subsequent grants under the 2000 Stock Option Plan. In June 2014, the Company’s shareholders approved the Amended and Restated 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2012 Plan”) allowing for an additional 1.6 million shares of the Company’s common stock to be available for future grants under the 2012 Plan. The 2012 Plan provides that if awards are forfeited, expire or otherwise terminate without issuance of the shares underlying the awards, or if the award does not result in issuance of all or part of the shares underlying the award, the unissued shares are again available for awards under the 2012 Plan. As a result of certain award forfeitures and cancellations, as of March 31, 2019, there are approximately 1.7 million shares available for issuance under the 2012 Plan.

All service-based (time vesting) options granted have ten-year terms from the date of grant and typically vest annually and become fully exercisable after a maximum of five years. However, vesting conditions are determined on a grant by grant basis. Performance-based options granted have ten-year terms and vest and become fully exercisable when determinable performance targets are achieved. Performance targets are approved by the Company’s compensation committee of the Board of Directors. Under the 2012 Plan, options may be granted to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock exercisable only at prices equal to or above the fair market value on the date of the grant.

 

Restricted Common Stock Awards

 

On January 11, 2019 the Company granted 95,000 restricted stock awards to employees under the 2012 Plan. The awards vest in equal annual installments over a three year period or upon a change in control, as defined in the 2012 Plan, as long as the grantee continues to provide service to the Company until the applicable vesting date. The grant date fair value of the restricted stock awards was $1.56 per share.

 

Service-Based Stock Option Awards

 

On January 11, 2019 the Company granted 15,000 incentive stock options. The stock options vest in equal annual installments over a three year period or upon a change in control, as defined in the 2012 Plan, as long as the grantee continues to provide service to the Company until the applicable vesting date.

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

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our interim consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements included in Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements contained in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Highlights from the First Quarter:

 

Net revenues of $13.0 million for first quarter 2019, a year over year decrease of 2%. Revenue increases at Embedded Solutions and Network Solutions offset by Test and Measurement.

 

Loss before taxes of $0.5 million for the first quarter 2019 primarily due to lower margin product mix.

 

Net cash used by operations of $3.4 million in the first quarter 2019 due to working capital investments, primarily an increase in accounts receivable, and payment of contingent consideration related to CommAgility.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

 

Net Revenues (in thousands)

 

   Three months ended March 31 
   Revenue   % of Revenue   Change 
   2019   2018   2019   2018   Amount   Pct. 
Network Solutions  $5,758   $5,511    44.2%   41.5%  $247    4.5%
Test and Measurement   3,030    3,763    23.3%   28.4%   (733)    -19.5%
Embedded Solutions   4,244    3,990    32.6%   30.1%   254    6.4%
Total Net Revenues  $13,032   $13,264    100.0%   100.0%  $(232)    -1.7%

 

Net consolidated revenues decreased $0.2 million or 1.7% due primarily to the Test Measurement segment which decreased 19.5% as a result of lower government orders year over year. Embedded Solutions segment revenue increased 6.4% on higher sales of digital signal processing hardware and Network Solutions segment revenue increased 4.5% on increased large venue projects and customized solutions.

 

Gross Profit (in thousands)

 

   Three months ended March 31 
   Gross Profit   Gross Profit %   Change 
   2019   2018   2019   2018   Amount   Pct. 
Network Solutions  $2,389   $2,442    41.5%   44.3%  $(53)   -2.2%
Test and Measurement   1,569    1,845    51.8%   49.0%   (276)   -15.0%
Embedded Solutions   1,769    1,981    41.7%   49.6%   (212)   -10.7%
Total Gross Profit  $5,727   $6,268    43.9%   47.3%  $(541)   -8.6%

 

Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter decreased from 47.3% to 43.9% due primarily to product mix in the Embedded Solutions segment as a result of higher margin software revenue in 2018 and a higher percentage of lower margin hardware revenue in 2019. Also contributing to the lower consolidated gross profit year over year was a slight decrease in Network Solutions gross profit as a result of greater sales of lower margin products and competitive pricing in the industry. This was offset by increased gross profit margin at the Test and Measurement segment as a result of a more favorable product mix.

19

Operating Expenses (in thousands)

 

   Three months ended March 31 
   Operating Expenses   % of Revenue   Change 
   2019   2018   2019  2018  Amount   Pct. 
Research and Development  $1,714   $1,157    13.2%   8.7%  $557    48.1%
Sales and Marketing   1,937    1,910    14.9%   14.4%   27    1.4%
General and Administrative   2,474    2,633    19.0%   19.9%   (159)    -6.0%
Total Operating Expenses  $6,125   $5,700    47.0%   43.0%  $425    7.5%

 

Research and development expenses increased $0.6 million from the prior year period due to increased headcount and investment with product roadmap initiatives, specifically the 5G product roadmap initiative at Embedded Solutions. This was partially offset by a favorable foreign exchange impact.

 

Sales and marketing expenses were flat as compared to the year-ago period as the increased costs in the first quarter of 2019 related to the increase in headcount in the second half of fiscal 2018 at Network Solutions and Test and Measurement which were offset by the favorable foreign exchange impact and lower external commissions due to lower sales.

 

General and administrative expenses decreased $0.2 million primarily due to lower bonus expense and warranty expense as well as the favorable foreign exchange impact.

 

Other Income/(Expense)

 

Other income/(expense) increased $77,000 from expense of $46,000 in the 2018 period to income of $31,000 in the current period on foreign exchange gains recognized on monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than our functional currencies.

 

Interest Expense

 

Consolidated interest expense increased $23,000 from the prior year period due primarily to higher accretion expense on the contingent consideration liability related to CommAgility.

 

Taxes

 

The Company recorded an income tax benefit for the three months ended March 31, 2019 of $138,000 as compared to income tax expense in the prior year period as a result of the loss from operations in the current year.

 

Net Income/Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 is $0.3 million or loss per share of $.02 as compared to net income of $0.3 million or earnings per share of $.02 in the 2018 first quarter. Lower gross margins at Embedded Solutions and Network Solutions, due primarily to lower margin product mix coupled with higher operating expenses related to investments in 5G roadmap development, contributed to the net loss as compared to the prior year.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

As described in Note 9 to the consolidated financial statements, on February 26, 2019 the Company entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Credit Facility which extends the termination date of the Revolver from November 16, 2019 to March 31, 2020. We believe we can further extend the existing Credit Facility beyond March 31, 2020 at terms similar to our current agreement. We expect borrowings available to us under our Credit Facility, our existing cash balance and cash generated by operations to be our primary sources of short-term liquidity. We believe these sources in combination with an extension of our existing Credit Facility beyond March 31, 2020 will be sufficient to meet our liquidity needs for at least the next twelve months.

 

Our ability to meet our cash requirements will depend on our ability to generate cash in the future, which is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other factors that are beyond our control.

20

The Company expects to realize tax benefits in future periods due to the available net operating loss carryforwards resulting from the disposition of a former wholly owned subsidiary in 2010. Accordingly, future taxable income is expected to be offset by the utilization of operating loss carryforwards and, as a result, will increase the Company’s liquidity as cash needed to pay federal income taxes will be substantially reduced.

 

As of March 31, 2019, substantially all of our cash and cash equivalents are held outside the United States. The asset based revolver under our Credit Facility is secured by the Company’s U.S. assets. Income taxes have been provided on foreign earnings such that there would be no significant income tax expense to repatriate the portion of this cash that is not required to meet operational needs of our international subsidiary.

 

Operating Activities

 

Cash used by operating activities was $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 which is higher than the prior year period of $1.0 million. The increase was due to increases in working capital, specifically accounts receivable and inventory, as well as the payment of the contingent consideration related to CommAgility in the first quarter of 2019. $0.8 million of the CommAgility contingent consideration payment is included in cash used from operating activities in accordance with ASU 2016-15.

 

Investing Activities

 

Cash used by investing activities was $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and was comprised of capital expenditures and payment of the final deferred purchase price for the CommAgility acquisition.

 

Financing Activities

 

Cash provided by financing activities was $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $1.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease from the prior year is primarily due to the payment of the CommAgility contingent consideration of which $0.7 million is included in cash provided by financing activities under ASU 2016-15.

 

Overall, cash and cash equivalents decreased $2.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2019 for the reasons noted above.

 

The Company may pursue strategic opportunities, including potential acquisitions, mergers, divestitures or other activities, which may require significant use of the Company’s capital resources. The Company may incur costs as a result of such activities and such activities may affect the Company’s liquidity in future periods. In order to fund such activities, the Company may need to incur additional debt or issue additional securities if market conditions are favorable. However, there can be no certainty that such funding will be available in needed quantities on terms favorable to the Company or at all.

 

On August 27, 2018 the Company filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 which was declared effective on September 17, 2018. The Form S-3 will permit the Company to issue and sell, from time to time, up to $40 million in aggregate value of shares of its common stock through one or more methods of distribution, subject to applicable SEC limits on the value of securities that the Company, as a smaller reporting company, may sell during an applicable period, market conditions, and the Company’s capital desires and needs. The Company has no current plans to offer any common stock under the shelf registration statement.

 

The terms of any offering of the Company’s common stock, and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting therefrom, will be established at the times of the offerings and will be described in prospectus supplements filed with the SEC at the times of the offerings. The shelf registration statement is intended to provide financial flexibility to access capital in a competitive and expeditious manner when market conditions are appropriate.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Effects of Inflation and Changing Prices

 

The Company does not anticipate that inflation or other expected changes in prices will significantly impact its business.

21
