Note 1 - Organization and Operations   

On March 30, 2009, Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Sustut Exploration, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Optex Systems Holdings” or “Successor”), along with Optex Systems, Inc., a privately held Delaware corporation (“Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)”), which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Optex Systems Holdings, entered into a reorganization agreement and plan of reorganization, pursuant to which Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) was acquired by Optex Systems Holdings in a share exchange transaction.  Optex Systems Holdings became the surviving corporation. At the closing, there was a name change from Sustut Exploration Inc. to Optex Systems Holdings, Inc., and its year end changed from December 31 to a fiscal year ending on the Sunday nearest September 30.

On October 14, 2008, certain senior secured creditors of Irvine Sensors Corporation, Longview Fund, L.P. and Alpha Capital Anstalt, formed Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware), which acquired all of the assets and assumed certain liabilities of Optex Systems, Inc., a Texas corporation (“Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas)” or “Predecessor) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Irvine Sensors Corporation, in a transaction that was consummated via purchase at a public auction.  Following this asset purchase, Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) remained a wholly-owned subsidiary of Irvine Sensors Corporation. 

In accordance with FASB ASC 805 (Prior authoritative literature:  SFAS No. 141(R), “Business Combinations” and EITF 98-3 “Determining Whether a Non-monetary Transaction Involves Receipt of Productive Assets or of a Business”), Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)’s purchase of substantially all of the assets and assumption of certain liabilities represented the acquisition of a business.  FASB ASC 805 outlines the guidance in determining whether a “business” has been acquired in a transaction. For a transferred set of activities and assets to be a business, it must contain all of the inputs and processes necessary for it to continue to conduct normal operations after the transferred set of assets is separated from the transferor, which include the ability to sustain a revenue stream by providing its outputs to customers. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) obtained the inputs and processes necessary for normal operations.

On February 20, 2009, Sileas Corporation, a newly-formed Delaware corporation, owned by present members of Optex Systems Holdings’ management, purchased 100% of Longview's equity and debt interest in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)  (Longview’s interest in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) then representing 90% of the issued and outstanding common equity interests in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)), in a private transaction .  See Note 4 for a further description of the Sileas transaction.

Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) operated as a privately-held Delaware corporation until March 30, 2009, when as a result of the reorganization agreement (described above and also in Note 5), it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Optex Systems Holdings.  Sileas is the majority owner (parent) of Optex Systems Holdings, owning approximately 73.5% of the issued and outstanding equity interests in Optex Systems Holdings.  Optex Systems Holdings plans to carry on the business of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) as its sole line of business, and all of Optex Systems Holdings’ operations are conducted by and through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).  Accordingly, in subsequent periods the financial statements presented are those of the accounting acquirer.  The financial statements of Optex Systems Holdings represent subsidiary statements and do not include the accounts of its majority owner.

The Company’s operations are based in Richardson, Texas in a leased facility comprising 49,100 square feet.  As of March 28, 2010, Optex Systems Holdings operated with  99 full-time equivalent employees.

Optex Systems Holdings manufactures optical sighting systems and assemblies, primarily for Department of Defense applications.  Its products are installed on a variety of U.S. military land vehicles, such as the Abrams and Bradley fighting vehicles, light armored and advanced security vehicles, and have been selected for installation on the Stryker family of vehicles.

Note 2 - Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

Principles of Consolidation:  The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Optex Systems Holdings and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).  All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

The accompanying financial statements include the results of operations and cash flows of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware), the accounting acquirer in the Sustut reorganization and the successor in the October 14, 2008 Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) asset purchase transaction, for the three and six months ending March 28, 2010, the three months ended March 29, 2009 and the period from October 15, 2008 through March 29, 2009 and the results of operations and cash flows for the period from September 29, 2008 through October 14, 2008 of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas), Predecessor.  The accompanying financial statements include the balance sheets at March 28, 2010 and September 27, 2009 for Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware), the accounting acquirer.

These financial statements have been presented as subsidiary-only financial statements, reflecting the statements of operations and cash flows of the subsidiary as a stand-alone entity.

Although, Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor) has been majority owned by various parent companies described in the preceding paragraphs, no accounts of the parent companies or the effects of consolidation with any parent companies have been included in the accompanying financial statements.  The Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) accounts have been presented on the basis of push down accounting in accordance with FASB ASC 805-50-S99 (Prior authoritative literature:  Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 54 Application of “Push Down” Basis of Accounting in Financial Statements of Subsidiaries Acquired by Purchase). FASB ASC 805-50-S99 states that the push down basis of accounting should be used in a purchase transaction in which the entity becomes wholly-owned by another entity. Under the push down basis of accounting certain transactions incurred by the parent company, which would otherwise be accounted for in the accounts of the parent, are “pushed down” and recorded on the financial statements of the subsidiary. Accordingly, items resulting from the Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) purchase transaction, such as goodwill, debt incurred by the parent to acquire the subsidiary and other costs related to the purchase have been recorded on the financial statements of Optex Systems Holdings.

The condensed consolidated financial statements of Optex Systems Holdings included herein have been prepared by Optex Systems Holdings, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in conjunction with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although Optex Systems Holdings believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual audited financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Optex Systems Holdings’ Form 10-K and other reports filed with the SEC.

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of Optex Systems Holdings for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for these periods are not necessarily comparable to, or indicative of, results of any other interim period or for the fiscal year taken as a whole. Certain information that is not required for interim financial reporting purposes has been omitted.

Use of Estimates:  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from the estimates.

Inventory: Inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or market value, and adjusted, as necessary, for decreases in valuation and obsolescence. Adjustments to the valuation and obsolescence reserves are made after analyzing market conditions, current and projected sales activity, inventory costs and inventory balances to determine appropriate reserve levels. Cost is determined using the first-in first-out method. Under arrangements by which progress payments are received against certain contracts, the customer retains a security interest in the undelivered inventory identified with these contracts.  Payments received for such undelivered inventory are classified as unliquidated progress payments and deducted from the gross inventory balance. As of March 28, 2010 and September 27, 2009, inventory included:

Stock-Based Compensation:  In December 2004, FASB issued FASB ASC 718 (Prior authoritative literature:  SFAS No. 123R, “Share-Based Payment”).  FASB ASC 718 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, but primarily focuses on transactions whereby an entity obtains employee services for share-based payments. FASB ASC 718 requires that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements.  That cost will be measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued. It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments. 

The Company’s accounting policy for equity instruments issued to consultants and vendors in exchange for goods and services follows the provisions of FASB ASC 505-50 (Prior authoritative literature:  EITF 96-18, “Accounting for Equity Instruments That are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services” and EITF 00-18, “Accounting Recognition for Certain Transactions Involving Equity Instruments Granted to Other Than Employees”).  The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the consultant or vendor is reached or (ii) the date at which the consultant or vendor’s performance is complete. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement.  Stock-based compensation related to non-employees is accounted for based on the fair value of the related stock or options or the fair value of the services, whichever is more readily determinable in accordance with FASB ASC 718.

Income Tax/Deferred Tax:  FASB ASC 740 (Prior Authoritative Literature: SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”), requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differing treatment of items for financial reporting and income tax reporting purposes.  The deferred tax balances are adjusted to reflect tax rates by tax jurisdiction, based on currently enacted tax laws, which will be in effect in the years in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse.  Under FASB ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations.  Optex Systems Holdings has recognized deferred income tax benefits on net operating loss carry-forwards to the extent Optex Systems Holdings believes it will be able to utilize them in future tax filings.  The difference between the income tax expense and pretax accounting income is primarily attributable to $116,938 and $231,883 of deductible expenses representing permanent timing differences between book income and taxable income for the amortization of goodwill during the three and six months ending March 28, 2010, respectively.  This expense is deductible over 15 years for income tax purposes but is not amortized for accounting purposes.  The tax effect of this permanent timing difference is a reduction in income tax expense of $39,759 and $78,840 for the three and six months ended March 28, 2010, respectively.
 
Earnings per Share: Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available for common shareholders (the numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) for the period.  Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock.
 
The potentially dilutive securities that Optex Systems Holdings has outstanding are convertible preferred stock, stock options and warrants. In computing the dilutive effect of convertible preferred stock, the numerator is adjusted to add back any convertible preferred dividends, and the denominator is increased to assume the conversion of the number of additional common shares. Optex Systems Holdings uses the Treasury Stock Method to compute the diluted effect of stock options and warrants. Convertible preferred stocks, stock options and warrants that are antidilutive are excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share.

 
F-8

 
 
For the three and six months ended March 28, 2010, 1,027 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, 2,655,649 stock options and 9,948,667 warrants were excluded as antidilutive. There were no dilutive convertible securities issued and outstanding for the periods ended March 29, 2009 (Successor) or October 14, 2008 (Predecessor).
 
Reclassification:  Certain expenses reflected in the financial statements for the three and six months ended March 29, 2009 have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation.

Note 3 - Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-09 “Subsequent Event (Topic 855) Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements”. ASU 2010-09 removes the requirement for an SEC filer to disclose a date in both issued and revised financial statements.  Revised financial statements include financial statements revised as a result of either correction of an error or retrospective application of GAAP. All of the amendments in ASU 2010-09 are effective upon issuance of the final ASU, except for the use of the issued date for conduit debt obligors, which is effective for interim or annual periods ending after June 15, 2010.  The Company adopted ASU 2010-09 in February 2010 and therefore omitted the disclosure previously required as referenced above.

Note 4 — Acquisition of Substantially All of the Assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas)

Acquisition of Assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) on October 14, 2008

On October 14, 2008, in a purchase transaction that was consummated via public auction, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (Successor) purchased all of the assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor) in exchange for $15 million of Irvine Sensors Corporation indebtedness owned by it and the assumption of approximately $3.8 million of certain Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) liabilities. The $15 million of Irvine Sensors Corporation indebtedness was contributed by Longview and Alpha to Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware), in exchange for a $6 million note payable from Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) and a $9 million equity interest in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (which consisted of the issuance by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) of 45,081,350 and 4,918,650 shares of its common stock to each of Longview Fund and Alpha, respectively). On October 30, 2008, Alpha sold its Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock to Arland Holdings, Ltd. There was no contingent consideration associated with the purchase. Longview and Arland Holdings, Ltd. owned Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) together until February 20, 2009, when Longview sold 100% of its equity and debt interests in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) to Sileas, as discussed below.

Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) purchased all of the assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas), including: intellectual property, production processes and know-how, and outstanding contracts and customer relationships. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) also assumed certain liabilities of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) consisting of accounts payable and accrued liabilities. Optex Systems Holdings’ management intends to improve the business’s ability to serve its existing customers and to attract new customers by providing quality products and superior service.

Pro forma revenue and earnings per share information is presented cumulatively in Note 5.

Secured Promissory Note Issued in Connection with Purchase by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (Successor)

In connection with the public sale of the Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor) assets to Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (Successor), Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) issued to Longview and Alpha secured promissory notes, due September 19, 2011, in the principal amounts of $5,409,762 and $540,976, respectively. On February 20, 2009, Longview sold its Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) secured promissory note to Sileas, as described below. On March 27, 2009, Sileas and Alpha exchanged these secured promissory notes plus accrued and unpaid interest of $159,780 for 1,027 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) Series A preferred stock.

Acquisition by Sileas on February 20, 2009

On February 20, 2009, Sileas purchased 100% of the equity (which at the time represented 90% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)) and debt interest in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) held by Longview,. As of the date of this transaction, Sileas became the majority owner of Optex Systems Holdings.

Secured Promissory Note Due February 20, 2012/Longview Fund, LP

As a result of the transaction between Sileas and Longview, on February 20, 2009, Sileas (which is currently majority owner of Optex Systems Holdings) executed and delivered to Longview, a secured promissory note due February 20, 2012 in the principal amount of $13,524,405. This secured promissory note bears simple interest at the rate of 4% per annum, and the interest rate increases to 10% per annum upon the occurrence of an event of default thereunder. In the event Optex Systems Holdings sells or conveys all or substantially all its assets to a third party entity for more than nominal consideration, other than due to a reorganization into Sileas or reincorporation in another jurisdiction, then this secured promissory note shall be immediately due and owing without demand. In the event that such a major transaction occurs prior to the maturity date resulting in Sileas receiving net consideration with a fair market value in excess of the principal and interest due under the terms of this secured promissory note (the “Optex Consideration”), then in addition to paying the principal and interest due, Sileas shall also pay to Longview an amount equal to 90% of the Optex Consideration. The obligations of Sileas under this secured promissory note are secured by a security interest in Optex Systems Holdings’ common and preferred stock owned by Sileas that was granted to Longview and also by a lien on all of the assets of Sileas (which consist solely of the Optex Systems Holdings common and preferred stock held by Sileas).

Optex Systems Holdings has not guaranteed the note, and Longview does not have legal remedies that it can exercise against Optex Systems Holdings in the event of a default by Sileas. Therefore, there are no actual or potential cash flow commitments from Optex Systems Holdings. In the event of default by Sileas on its obligations under the note, Longview would only be entitled to receive the Optex Systems Holdings common and preferred stock held by Sileas.

Note 5 –Reorganization Plan and Private Placement

Reorganization/Share Exchange

On March 30, 2009, a reorganization occurred whereby the then existing shareholders of Optex Systems, Inc.

(Delaware) Series A preferred stock were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 1,027 shares of Optex Systems Holdings Series A preferred stock and (iii) the 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock purchased in the private placement were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock.

Note 8 – Intangible Assets and Goodwill

On October 14, 2008, in a purchase transaction that was consummated via public auction, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (Successor) purchased all of the assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor) in exchange for $15 million of Irvine Sensors Corporation debt owned by it and the assumption of approximately $3.8 million of certain Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) liabilities (see Note 4). Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) has allocated the consideration for its acquisition of the Purchased Assets among tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based upon their fair values.

The amortization of identifiable intangible assets associated with the Optex Systems Inc. (Texas) acquisition on October 14, 2008 expensed for the three and six months ended March 28, 2010 was $259,395 and $518,790, respectively.  The intangible amortization allocable to manufacturing cost of sales was $179,572 and $359,144, and the intangible amortization allocable to general and administrative was $79,821 and 159,642 for the three and six months ending March 28, 2010, respectively. The amortization of identifiable intangible assets expensed for the three and six months ended March 29, 2009 was $517,798 and $1,035,596, respectively.  The intangible amortization allocable to manufacturing cost of sales was $416,639 and $833,280, respectively, and the intangible amortization allocable to general and administrative was $101,159 and $202,316 for the three and six months ending March 29, 2009, respectively. The identifiable intangible assets and recorded goodwill are amortized over five years for book purposes and over 15 years for income tax purposes.  As of the March 28, 2010, the total unamortized balance of intangible assets was $1,446,806.  The amortizable intangible assets were tested for impairment as of September 27, 2009 utilizing undiscounted, projected cash flows and based upon this analysis, no impairment was noted. Subsequent to the review, there have been no material changes to our assumptions or estimates that would result in impairment.  However, we intend to continue to monitor the value of our intangible assets and goodwill in order to identify any impairment that may occur in the future.

Identifiable intangible assets primarily consist of customer  and program backlog.  The remaining unamortized balance of intangible assets will be amortized between general and administrative expenses and costs of sales over their remaining respective estimated useful lives as follows:

Note 9-Stock Based Compensation

Option Agreements:

On March 26, 2009, the Board of Directors of Optex Systems Holdings adopted the 2009 Stock Option Plan providing for the issuance of up to 6,000,000 shares to Optex Systems Holdings officers, directors, employees and to independent contractors who provide services to Optex Systems Holdings.

 
F-14

 

Options granted under the 2009 Stock Option Plan vest as determined by the Board of Directors of Optex Systems Holdings or any committee set up to act as a compensation committee of the Board of Directors and terminate after the earliest of the following events: (i) expiration of the option as provided in the option agreement, (ii) 90 days following the date of termination of the employee, or (iii) ten years from the date of grant (five years from the date of grant for incentive options granted to an employee who owns more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of Optex Systems Holdings stock at the date of grant). In some instances, granted stock options are immediately exercisable into restricted shares of common stock, which vest in accordance with the original terms of the related options. Optex Systems Holdings recognizes compensation expense ratably over the requisite service period.

The option price of each share of common stock is determined by the Board of Directors or compensation committee (when one is established), provided that with respect to incentive stock options, the option price per share will in all cases be equal to or greater than 100% of the fair value of a share of common stock on the date of the grant, except an incentive stock option granted under the 2009 Stock Option Plan to a shareholder that owns more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of Optex Systems Holdings’ stock, will have an exercise price of not less than 110% of the fair value of a share of common stock on the date of grant. No participant may be granted incentive stock options, which would result in shares with an aggregate fair value of more than $100,000 first becoming exercisable in one calendar year.

On March 30, 2009, 1,414,649 stock options with an exercise price of $0.15 per share were granted to an officer of Optex Systems Holdings.  These options vest as follows: 34% after the first year, and 33% each after the second and third years.  These options have a seven year term from the date of issuance.  On May 14, 2009, 1,267,000 stock options were issued to other Optex Systems Holdings employees, including options to purchase 250,000 shares to one executive officer.  These stock options vest 25% per year after each year of employment and have a seven year term from the date of issuance.  For shares granted as of May 14, 2009, Optex Systems Holdings anticipates an annualized employee turnover rate of 3% per year, and as such anticipates that only 1,174,786 of the 1,267,000 shares will vest as of the end of the contract term.  As of March 28, 2010, none of the stock options had vested and 26,000 shares had been forfeited due to employee turnover.

Optex Systems Holdings recorded compensation costs for options and shares granted under the plan amounting to $24,937 and $47,437 for the three and six months ended March 28, 2010, respectively.  There were no stock options or shares granted or outstanding as of March 29, 2009; therefore, no compensation expense was recorded during that period.  The impact of this expense was immaterial to the basic and diluted net loss per share for the three and six months ended March 28, 2010.  A deduction is not allowed for income tax purposes until nonqualified options are exercised. The amount of this deduction will be the difference between the fair value of Optex Systems Holdings’ common stock and the exercise price at the date of exercise. For the six months ended March 28, 2010, estimated deferred tax assets related to option compensation costs were $16,129 and have been recorded to reflect the tax effect of the financial statement expense.  There was no similar tax effect related to option compensation costs for the six months ended March 29, 2009 related to these stock options.  No tax deduction is allowed for incentive stock options. Accordingly, no deferred tax asset is recorded for GAAP expense related to these options.

Management has valued the options at their date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model.  The fair value of the underlying shares was determined based on the closing price of Optex Systems Holdings’ publicly-traded shares on the grant date.  Further, the expected volatility was calculated using the historical volatility of a diversified index of companies in the defense, homeland security, and space industry in accordance with FASB ASC 718-10-S99-1 (Prior authoritative literature:  Question 6 of SAB Topic 14.D.1).  In making this determination and trying to find another comparable company, Optex Systems Holdings considered the industry, stage of life cycle, size and financial leverage of such other entities.  Based on the development stage of Optex Systems Holdings, similar companies with sufficient historical data were not available.   Optex Systems Holdings utilized the three year volatility of the SPADE Defense Index, which is a diversified index of 58 companies in the same industry as Optex Systems Holdings.  The risk-free interest rate is based on the implied yield available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent term approximating the expected life of the options depending on the date of the grant and expected life of the options.  The expected life of options used was based on the contractual life of the option grant. Optex Systems Holdings determined the expected dividend rate based on the assumption and expectation that earnings generated from operations are not expected to be adequate to allow for the payment of dividends in the near future and the assumption that the company does not presently have any intention of paying cash dividends on its common stock. The following weighted-average assumptions were utilized in the fair value calculations for options granted:

The common stock, treasury stock and additional paid in capital accounts have been presented to reflect the ownership structure of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) as it existed prior to the acquisition by Irvine Sensors Corporation, since Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) is presenting its financial statements as a separate, stand-alone entity.

On October 14, 2008, in a purchase transaction that was consummated via public auction, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (Successor) purchased all of the assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor) in exchange for $15 million of Irvine Sensors Corporation debt owned by it and the assumption of approximately $3.8 million of certain Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) liabilities. The $15 million of Irvine Sensors Corporation debt was contributed by Longview and Alpha to Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware), in exchange for a $6 million note payable from Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) and a $9 million equity interest in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) (which consisted of the issuance by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) of 45,081,350 and 4,918,650 shares of its common stock to each of Longview Fund and Alpha, respectively). On October 30, 2008, Alpha sold its Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock to Arland Holdings, Ltd. There was no contingent consideration associated with the purchase. In February 20, 2009, Longview sold 100% of its equity and debt interests in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) to Sileas (representing 90% of the then outstanding equity interests in Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)), and Sileas became the majority owner of Optex Systems Holdings.

Stock Split

On March 26, 2009, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)’s Board of Directors effected a 1.7:1 forward split of its common stock to holders of record as of February 23, 2009.  Accordingly, as a result of the forward split, the 45,081,350 shares of common stock held by Sileas were split into 76,638,295 shares, and the 4,918,650 shares of common stock held by Arland Holdings, Ltd. were split into 8,361,705 shares.

Reorganization & Private Placement:

As a result of the reorganization agreement and private placement, the 85,000,000 outstanding shares of common stock of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) outstanding as of March 30, 2009 were exchanged for 113,333,282 shares of common stock of Optex Systems Holdings (formerly Sustut Exploration, Inc.). An additional 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock were issued in connection with the private placement closed prior to the reorganization.

On June 29, 2009, 750,000 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock were sold to in a private transaction for gross proceeds of $150,000.

Each share of common stock entitles the holder to one vote on matters brought to a vote of the shareholders.

The company granted an officer at the consummation of the reorganization options to purchase 1,414,649 shares with an exercise price of $0.15 per share. The options vest 34% one year following the date of grant, and 33% on each of the second and third anniversaries following the date of grant. 480,981 of these options vested on March 30, 2010, subsequent to the March 28, 2010 quarter end. See Note 9 - Stock Based Compensation.

Series A preferred stock

On March 24, 2009, Optex Systems Holdings filed a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware authorizing a series of preferred stock, under its articles of incorporation, known as “Series A preferred stock”. This Certificate of Designation was approved by Optex Systems Holdings’ Board of Directors and Shareholders at a Board Meeting and Shareholders Meeting held on February 25, 2009. The Certificate of Designation sets forth the following terms for the Series A preferred stock: (i) number of authorized shares: 1,027; (ii) per share stated value: $6,000; (iii) liquidation preference per share: stated value; (iv) conversion price: $0.15 per share as adjusted from time to time; and (v) voting rights: votes along with the common stock on an as converted basis with one vote per share.

The Series A preferred stock entitles the holders to receive cumulative dividends at the rate of 6% per annum, payable in cash at the discretion of Board of Directors. Each share of preferred stock is immediately convertible into common shares at the option of the holder which entitles the holder to receive the equivalent number of common shares equal to the stated value of the preferred shares divided by the conversion price, which was initially set at $0.15 per share.

Holders of preferred shares receive preferential rights in the event of liquidation. Additionally the preferred stock shareholders are entitled to vote together with the common stock on an “as-converted” basis.

On March 27, 2009, Sileas and Alpha exchanged their promissory notes in the total principal amount of $6,000,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon into 1,027 shares of Series A preferred stock. On March 30, 2009, shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) Series A preferred stock were exchanged on a 1:1 basis for shares of Series A preferred stock of Optex Systems Holdings.  As of the three and six months ended March 28, 2010, Optex Systems Holdings recorded $96,652 and $191,876 of dividends payable on Series A preferred shares, respectively.

Cancellation of Common Stock

On June 29, 2009, Optex Systems Holdings cancelled an investor relations agreement resulting in the return of 700,000 shares of common stock previously issued by Sustut prior to the reverse merger on March 30, 2009.  The shares were valued at $105,000, returned to Optex System Holdings, and then cancelled (see also Note 9 regarding new investor relations shares issued).

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

Management’s Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operations

This management's discussion and analysis reflects information known to management as at March 28, 2010. This MD&A is intended to supplement and complement our audited financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended September 27, 2009, prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). You are encouraged to review our financial statements in conjunction with your review of this MD&A. The financial information in this MD&A has been prepared in accordance with GAAP, unless otherwise indicated. In addition, we use non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance and financial position. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally for comparing actual results from one period to another, as well as for planning purposes. We will also report non-GAAP financial results as supplemental information, as we believe their use provides more insight into our performance. When non-GAAP measures are used in this MD&A, they are clearly identified as a non-GAAP measure and reconciled to the most closely corresponding GAAP measure.

The following discussion highlights the principal factors that have affected our financial condition and results of operations as well as our liquidity and capital resources for the periods described.  This discussion contains forward-looking statements. Please see “Special cautionary statement concerning forward-looking statements” and “Risk factors” for a discussion of the uncertainties, risks and assumptions associated with these forward-looking statements. The operating results for the periods presented were not significantly affected by inflation.

Background

On March 30, 2009, a reorganization was consummated pursuant to which the then existing shareholders of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) exchanged their shares of common stock for shares of common stock of Optex Systems Holdings as follows:   (i) the outstanding 85,000,000 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 113,333,282 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock, (ii) the outstanding 1,027 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) Series A preferred stock were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 1,027 shares of Optex Systems Holdings Series A preferred stock, and (iii) the 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock purchased in the private placement were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock.  Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) has remained a wholly-owned subsidiary of Optex Systems Holdings.

As a result of the reorganization, Optex Systems Holdings changed its name from Sustut Exploration Inc. to Optex Systems Holdings, Inc., and its year end from December 31 to a fiscal year ending on the Sunday nearest September 30.

Immediately prior to the closing under the reorganization agreement (and the exchange of shares referenced above), as of March 30, 2009, Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) accepted subscriptions from accredited investors for a total 27.1 units, at a purchase price of $45,000 per unit, with each unit consisting of 300,000 shares of common stock, no par value, of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) and warrants to purchase 300,000 shares of common stock for $0.45 per share for a period of five (5) years from the initial closing, which were issued by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) after the closing referenced above.  Gross proceeds to Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) were $1,219,750, and after deducting (i) a cash finder’s fee of $139,555, (ii) non-cash consideration of indebtedness owed to an investor of $146,250, and (iii) stock issuance costs of $59,416, the net proceeds were $874,529.  The finder also received five year warrants to purchase 2.39 units, at an exercise price of $49,500 per unit.

Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) manufactures optical sighting systems and assemblies, primarily for Department of Defense applications. Its products are installed on various types of U.S. military land vehicles, such as the Abrams and Bradley fighting vehicles, light armored and armored security vehicles and have been selected for installation on the Stryker family of vehicles. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) also manufactures and delivers numerous periscope configurations, rifle and surveillance sights and night vision optical assemblies.  Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) products consist primarily of build-to-customer print products that are delivered both directly to the armed services and to other defense prime contractors.  Less than 1% of today’s revenue is resale of products “substantially manufactured by others”.  In this case, the product would likely be a simple replacement part of a larger system previously produced by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).

Many of our contracts allow for government contract financing in the form of contract progress payments pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation 52.232-16, “Progress Payments”.  As a small business, and subject to certain limitations, this clause provides for government payment of up to 90% of incurred program costs prior to product delivery.  To the extent our contracts allow for progress payments, we intend to utilize this benefit, thereby minimizing the working capital impact on Optex Systems Holdings for materials and labor required to complete the contracts.

Optex Systems Holdings also anticipates the opportunity to integrate some of its night vision and optical sights products into commercial applications.  Optex Systems Holdings plans to carry on the business of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) as its sole line of business, and all of Optex Systems Holdings’ operations are expected to be conducted by and through Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).

The business which is now carried on through Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) differs from the business of Irvine Sensors Corporation, which was the former owner of the assets through its subsidiary, Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas).   Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) delivers high volume products, under multi-year contracts, to large defense contractors.  It has the reputation and credibility with those customers as a strategic supplier. Irvine Sensors Corporation is predominately a research and design company with capabilities enabling only prototype or low quantity volumes.  Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) is predominately a high volume manufacturing company.  Therefore the systems and processes needed to meet customer’s needs are quite different.  While both companies serve the military market, the customers within these markets are different.  For example, two of the largest customers for Optex are General Dynamics Land Systems and U.S. Army Tank-armaments and Automotive Command.  Irvine Sensors Corporation did not have any contracts or business relations with either of these two customers.  Therefore, the separation has allowed Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) to focus on high volume manufacturing and the use of the six sigma manufacturing methodology.   This shift in priorities has allowed Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) to improve delivery performance and reduce operational costs.

The successful completion of the separation from Irvine Sensors Corporation, which was accomplished by Optex Delaware’s acquisition of all of the assets and assumption of certain liabilities of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas), eliminated the general and administrative costs allocated by Irvine Sensors Corporation. These costs represented services paid by Irvine Sensors Corporation for expenses incurred on Optex Texas’ behalf such as legal, accounting and audit, consulting fees and insurance costs in addition to significant amounts of Irvine Sensors Corporation’s general overhead allocated to Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas).

The estimated total General and Administrative expenses assuming Optex Systems, Inc (Texas) was operated under a stand-alone basis during the 2008 fiscal year are:
  
Accounting and Auditing Fees
 
250,000
 
Legal Fees
   
60,000

As a result of the  purchase of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) on October 14, 2008, these general and administrative costs are incurred and paid directly by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) and have been reflected in the 2009 and 2010 financial results to the extent incurred for the periods presented herein.

The liabilities of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) not assumed by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) relate to costs that would not have been incurred by Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) if they were operated on a stand alone basis.  Among those liabilities not assumed by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) was a note due to Tim Looney.  The 2007 Looney promissory note had a principal amount of $2,000,000 together with accrued interest unpaid aggregating to approximately $2,300,000.  The note was an amendment to Looney’s earn-out agreement which was the consideration for Irvine Sensors Corporation’s purchase of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas).

The 2007 Looney promissory note was not assumed by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) in the October 2008 transaction.  The note and accrued interest was reported on Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) financial statements as of September 28, 2008 as a result of push down accounting for the acquisition of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) by Irvine Sensors Corporation.  These costs would not be incurred by Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) if operated as a stand alone entity because it relates to Irvine Sensors Corporation’s consideration for their purchase of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas). Since this was not an operating cost associated with Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) and they would not incur these costs if operating as a stand alone entity, we expect no impact to the future operating results or liquidity of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).

Additionally, as of September 28, 2008, Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) reported $4.3 million of liabilities attributable to corporate expenses allocated to Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) through an intercompany payable account “Due to Parent”.  The outstanding “Due to Parent” balance was not acquired by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) in the acquisition from Irvine Sensors Corporation.

To the extent that Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) has incurred these similar costs on an ongoing basis, these amounts have been funded from the Optex Systems Inc. (Delaware)’s own operating cash flow.

Results of Operations

During the quarter ended March 28, 2010, we experienced reductions in forecasted sales volume due to changes in incremental funding commitments by federal agencies.  We are currently evaluating the impact that anticipated reductions in government defense spending budgets will have on Optex Systems Holdings. After the 2011 Congressional budget is published in late May 2010, our major customers are expected to provide updated volume expectations for the coming year.  Due to new periscope orders from non-traditional sources and an aggressive pursuit of increased market share for all of our existing product lines, we expect to mitigate some of the decreased U.S. government requirements with other new business.

The revenue, expenses and income for the fourteen day period of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) prior to the acquisition by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) are summarized below (in millions).

The table below summarizes our quarterly and year to date operating results in terms of both a GAAP net income measure and a non GAAP EBITDA measure. We use EBITDA as an additional measure for evaluating the performance of our business as “net income” includes the significant impact of noncash intangible amortization on our income performance. Consequently, in order to have a meaningful measure of our operating performance on a continuing basis, we need to evaluate an income measure which does not take into account this intangible amortization. We have summarized the quarterly revenue and margin below along with a reconciliation of the GAAP net loss to the non GAAP EBITDA calculation for comparative purposes below. We believe that including both measures allows the reader to have a “complete picture” of our overall performance.

Our EBITDA declined by $0.7 million in the six months ended March 28, 2010 as compared to the prior year performance for the same period.  The EBITDA reduction for the period was primarily attributable to the lower sales revenue of $1.7 million, lower product margins related to the mix of product lines shipped, and higher general and administrative spending of $0.1 million.  We continue to pursue cost efficiencies in our production and general and administrative areas.

Product mix is dictated by customer contracted delivery dates and volume of each product to be delivered on such delivery dates.  Shifts in gross margin from quarter to quarter are primarily attributable to the differing product mix recognized as revenues during each respective period.  Certain periscope contracts were awarded January 2003, and due to significant material price increases subsequent to the contract award date, we are experiencing a loss on these contracts.  We have fully reserved for future contract losses on this program, thus deliveries against these programs yield a product margin of zero.  During the three and six months ended March 28, 2010, we recognized revenue of $0.4 and $1.1 million, respectively, from these legacy periscope programs, with a remaining backlog of $0.1 million, which should be recognized in the third quarter of 2010.  We expect our product margins on periscopes to increase each quarter as the legacy programs are completed and are replaced with new awards.

We are aggressively pursuing additional, potentially higher margin periscope business, and in May 2009, Optex Systems Holdings was awarded a multi-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity type contract accompanied by the first delivery order from U.S. Army Tank-armaments and Automotive Command.   In June 2009, we received an additional $3.4 million dollar award from General Dynamics Land Systems and in September 2009, we received an additional $1.9 million award to provide product beginning with delivery starting in 2011 at the completion of our current production contract.  The total orders recorded for all product lines in the six months ended March 28, 2010 was $8.3 million of which $5.5 million related to periscope business from several customers.

As a result of the October 14, 2008 acquisition of the assets of Optex Systems, Inc. (Texas) (Predecessor), Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware)’s amortizable intangible assets increased significantly in 2009 over prior years. We expect the intangible amortization expense to decline $1.0 million in the year ended September 27, 2010 from $2.0 million in the year ended September 27, 2009.
