NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

DECEMBER 31, 2015

 

Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The following condensed balance sheet as of September 30, 2015, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-K. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The operating results for the three month period ended December 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended September 30, 2016. For further information, refer to the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2015.

 

Note 2. Industry Segment Data

 

The Company’s primary business segment involves the operations of Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (MFC) which designs, develops, manufactures and sells electronic filters, both for radio and microwave frequencies, to help process signal distribution and to prevent unwanted signals from disrupting transmit or receive operations. Markets served include cable television, television and radio broadcast, satellite broadcast, mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics.

 

Note 3. Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost determined on the first-in, first-out method or market.

 

Inventories net of reserve for obsolescence consisted of the following:

 

   December 31, 2015   September 30, 2015 
         
Raw materials and stock parts  $367,363   $367,344 
Work-in-process   18,803    19,884 
Finished goods   43,897    60,279 
           
   $430,063   $447,507 

 

The Company’s reserve for obsolescence equaled $429,255 at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015. The Company provides for a valuation reserve for certain inventory that is deemed to be obsolete, of excess quantity or otherwise impaired.

 

6
 

 

Note 4. Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are based on the difference between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which are anticipated to be in effect when these differences reverse. The deferred tax provision is the result of the net change in the deferred tax assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established when it is necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts expected to be realized. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

 

The Company adopted FASB ASC 740-10. FASB ASC 740-10 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an entity’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attributes for financial statement disclosure of tax position taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Additionally, it provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. The Company determined it has no uncertain tax positions and therefore no amounts are recorded.

 

Note 5. Legal Matters

 

None.

 

Note 6. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying values of the Company cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments.

 

The Company currently does not trade in or utilize derivative financial instruments.

 

Note 7. Significant Customers

 

Sales to one customer represented approximately 30% of total sales for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to approximately 28% of total sales for the three months ended December 31, 2014. This one customer has represented approximately 33%, 25% and 14% of total sales for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2015, 2014 and 2013, respectively. A loss of this customer or programs related to this customer could materially impact the Company.

 

Note 8. Notes Payable

 

On July 2, 2013, Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Ten Year Term Loan with KeyBank National Association in the amount of Five Hundred Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($500,000.00). The amount of all advances outstanding together with accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on July 2, 2023 (“Maturity”). The Company shall pay interest on the outstanding principal balance of this Note at the rate per annum equal to 4.5%. The net proceeds from the Term Loan will be available to provide working capital as needed. The total amount outstanding as of December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015 was $399,211 and $410,178 respectively. Interest accrued as of December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015 was $1,447 and $1,436 respectively.

 

The Company has secured this Note by: (a) a Mortgage, Assignment of Rents, Security Agreement and Fixture Filing which creates a 1st lien on real property situated in the Town of Dewitt, County of Onondaga, and State of New York and known as 6743 Kinne Street, East Syracuse, New York; (b) a General Assignment of Rents and Leases; (c) an Environmental Compliance and Indemnification; and (d) such other security as may now or hereafter be given to Lender as collateral for the loan.

 

7
 

 

Note 9. Earnings Per Share

 

The Company presents basic earnings per share (“EPS”), computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period, and when applicable diluted EPS, which gives the effect to all dilutive potential shares outstanding (i.e. options) during the period after restatement for any stock dividends. There were no dividends declared during the quarters ending December 31, 2015 and 2014. Income (loss) used in the EPS calculation is net income (loss) for each period. There were no dilutive potential shares outstanding for the periods ending December 31, 2015 and 2014.

 

Note 10. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management has reviewed the most recent accounting pronouncements issued by the various authoritative standard setting bodies:

 

Update 2015-11- Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory, is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Under the new standard, businesses that use the first-in, first-out (FIFO) or average cost method are required to measure inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value (“NRV”), as defined, instead of at the lower of cost or market value. Management feels the updated standard, to be adopted on a prospective basis, would not represent a material impact to the Company’s financial statements.

 

Update 2015-17 - Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes addresses the requirement to reclassify all current deferred income tax assets and liabilities on the balance sheet as non-current assets and liabilities, and is effective for financial statements issued for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. As explained in Note 4, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets, and thus there will be no impact from the adoption of this updated standard in the current year or on the balance sheet of any of the periods presented.

 

Update 2015-14- Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): affects any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of nonfinancial assets unless those contracts are within the scope of other standards (for example, insurance contracts or lease contracts). The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance is applicable to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. Earlier application is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. Management plans to evaluate the applicability and impact of the adoption of this standards update over the coming year.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Business Overview

 

Microwave Filter Company, Inc. operates primarily in the United States and principally in one industry. The Company extends credit to business customers based upon ongoing credit evaluations. Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (MFC) designs, develops, manufactures and sells electronic filters, both for radio and microwave frequencies, to help process signal distribution and to prevent unwanted signals from disrupting transmit or receive operations. Markets served include cable television, television and radio broadcast, satellite broadcast, mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are based on the application of United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). GAAP requires the use of estimates, assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenue and expense amounts reported. The Company believes its use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently applied. Valuations based on estimates are reviewed for reasonableness and adequacy on a consistent basis throughout the Company. Primary areas where financial information of the Company is subject to the use of estimates, assumptions and the application of judgment include revenues, receivables, inventories, and taxes. Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015 describes the significant accounting policies used in preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements. The most significant areas involving management judgments and estimates are described below and are considered by management to be critical to understanding the financial condition and results of operations of the Company.

 

Revenues from product sales are recorded as the products are shipped and title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, provided that no significant vendor or post-contract support obligations remain and the collection of the related receivable is probable. Billings in advance of the Company’s performance of such work are reflected as customer deposits in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

Allowances for doubtful accounts are based on estimates of losses related to customer receivable balances. The establishment of reserves requires the use of judgment and assumptions regarding the potential for losses on receivable balances.

 

The Company’s inventories are stated at the lower of cost determined on the first-in, first-out method or market. The Company uses certain estimates and judgments and considers several factors including product demand and changes in technology to provide for excess and obsolescence reserves to properly value inventory.

 

The Company established a warranty reserve which provides for the estimated cost of product returns based upon historical experience and any known conditions or circumstances. Our warranty obligation is affected by product that does not meet specifications and performance requirements and any related costs of addressing such matters.

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are based on the difference between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which are anticipated to be in effect when these differences reverse. The deferred tax provision is the result of the net change in the deferred tax assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established when it is necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts expected to be realized. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2015 vs. THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2014

 

The following table sets forth the Company’s net sales by major product group for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014.

 

Product group  Fiscal 2016   Fiscal 2015 
Microwave Filter (MFC):          
RF/Microwave  $329,696   $384,632 
Satellite   250,443    307,206 
Cable TV   95,042    129,112 
Broadcast TV   90,222    26,321 
Niagara Scientific (NSI):   2,144    2,656 
Total  $767,547   $849,927 
           
Sales backlog at December 31  $880,669   $352,787 

 

Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2015 equaled $767,547, a decrease of $82,380 or 9.7%, when compared to net sales of $849,927 for the three months ended December 31, 2014. Management attributes the decrease in sales to weak economic conditions.

 

MFC’s RF/Microwave product sales decreased $54,936 or 14.3% to $329,696 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 when compared to RF/Microwave product sales of $384,632 during the same period last year. MFC’s RF/Microwave products are sold primarily to Original Equipment Manufacturers that serve the mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics markets. Management attributes the decrease in sales to the sequester of funds imposed upon the Department of Defense. The Company continues to invest in production engineering and infrastructure development to penetrate OEM market segments as they become popular. MFC is concentrating its technical resources and product development efforts toward potential high volume customers as part of a concentrated effort to provide substantial long-term growth. Sales to one OEM customer represented approximately 30% of total sales for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and approximately 28% of total sales for the three months ended December 31, 2014.

 

MFC’s Satellite product sales decreased $56,763 or 18.5% to $250,443 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 when compared to Satellite product sales of $307,206 during the same period last year. The decrease can be attributed to a decrease in demand for the Company’s filters which suppress strong out-of-band interference caused by military and civilian radar systems and other sources. Management attributes a portion of this decrease to the strong dollar since a number of these products are shipped overseas. Although economic conditions do impact sales, management expects demand for these types of filters to continue with the proliferation of earth stations world wide and increased sources of interference.

 

MFC’s Cable TV product sales decreased $34,070 or 26.4% to $95,042 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 when compared to Cable TV product sales of $129,112 during the same period last year. Management continues to project a decrease in demand for Cable TV products due to the shift from analog to digital television. Due to the inherent nature of digital modulation versus analog modulation, fewer filters will be required. The Company has developed filters for digital television and there will still be requirements for analog filters for limited applications in commercial and private cable systems.

 

10
 

 

MFC’s Broadcast TV/Wireless Cable product sales increased $63,901 to $90,222 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 when compared to sales of $26,321 during the same period last year. The increase in sales can primarily be attributed to the development of wireless diplexers which were sold to one customer.

 

MFC’s sales order backlog equaled $880,669 at December 31, 2015 compared to sales order backlog of $352,787 at December 31, 2014. The increase can primarily be attributed to orders received from one OEM customer. However, backlog is not necessarily indicative of future sales. Accordingly, the Company does not believe that its backlog as of any particular date is representative of actual sales for any succeeding period. The total sales order backlog at December 31, 2015 is scheduled to ship by September 30, 2016.

 

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2015 equaled $258,805, a decrease of $51,309 or 16.5%, when compared to gross profit of $310,114 for the three months ended December 31, 2014. As a percentage of sales, gross profit equaled 33.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to 36.5% for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The decreases in gross profit can primarily be attributed to the lower sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year providing a lower base to absorb expenses.

 

Selling, general and administrative (SGA) expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2015 equaled $359,164, a decrease of $41,024 or 10.3%, when compared to SGA expenses of $400,188 for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The decrease can primarily be attributed to lower payroll and payroll related expenses. The Company has been participating in the New York State Shared Work Program which allows employers to reduce the hours of all or a particular group of employees. The employees whose hours are reduced can receive partial unemployment insurance benefits to supplement their lost wages or elect to use accrued vacation. As a percentage of sales, SGA expenses decreased to 46.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to 47.1% for the three months ended December 31, 2014 primarily due to the lower expenses this year when compared to the same period last year.

 

The Company recorded a loss from operations of $100,359 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to a loss from operations of $90,074 for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The higher loss can primarily be attributed to the lower sales volume partially offset by the lower SGA expenses this year when compared to the same period last year.

 

Other income (expense) was an expense of $2,992 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to an expense of $3,952 for the for the three months ended December 31, 2014 primarily due to interest expense of $4,636 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and interest expense of $5,129 for the three months ended December 31, 2014.

 

The (benefit) provision for income taxes equaled $0 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014. We have not recognized any (benefit) provision for income taxes. Any benefit for losses has been subject to a valuation allowance since the realization of the deferred tax benefit is not considered more likely than not. As required by FASB ASC 740 (Prior Authoritative Literature: SFAS 109, Accounting for Income Taxes), the Company has evaluated the positive and negative evidence bearing upon the realization of its deferred tax assets. The Company has determined that, at this time, it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize all of the benefits of federal and state deferred tax assets, and, as a result, a valuation allowance was established.

 

11
 

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

At December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company did not have any unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, which might have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

LIQUIDITY and CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

MFC defines liquidity as the ability to generate adequate funds to meet its operating and capital needs. The Company’s primary source of liquidity has been funds provided by operations.

 

   December 31, 2015   September 30, 2015 
         
Cash & cash equivalents  $957,836   $896,667 
Working capital  $1,342,999   $1,434,405 
Current ratio   5.34 to 1    5.14 to 1 
Long-term debt  $354,175   $365,650 

 

Cash and cash equivalents increased $61,169 to $957,836 at December 31, 2015 when compared to cash and cash equivalents of $896,667 at September 30, 2015. The increase was a result of $72,226 in net cash provided by operating activities, $10,967 in net cash used for repayment of a note payable and $90 in net cash used to purchase treasury stock.

 

Net cash provided by operating activities can fluctuate between periods as a result of differences in net income, the timing of the collection of accounts receivable, purchase of inventory and payment of accounts payable. The $72,226 in net cash provided by operating activities can primarily be attributed to the net loss of $103,351 offset by the collection of accounts receivable of $184,725.

 

On July 2, 2013, Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Ten Year Term Loan with KeyBank National Association in the amount of Five Hundred Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($500,000.00). The amount of all advances outstanding together with accrued interest thereon shall be due and payable on July 2, 2023 (“Maturity”). The Company shall pay interest on the outstanding principal balance of this Note at the rate per annum equal to 4.5%. The net proceeds from the Term Loan will be available to provide working capital as needed.

 

Management believes that its working capital requirements for at least the next twelve months will be met by its existing cash balances, future cash flows from operations and its current credit arrangements.
