WPCS INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Description of the Business

 

The Company currently specializes in low voltage communications and security contracting services, conducting business in two operation centers, through its wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries, WPCS International - Suisun City, Inc. (“Suisun City Operations”) and WPCS International - Texas Operations, Inc. (“Texas Operations”).

 

The Company is a full-service low voltage contractor that specializes in the installation and service of Voice & Data Networks, Security Systems, Audio-Visual Solutions, and Distributed Antenna Systems and provides experienced project management and delivers complex projects to key vertical markets that include Healthcare, Education, Transportation, Energy & Utilities, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Commercial Real Estate, Financial, Government, etc.

 

The Company also has strategic alliances with technology partners to provide consulting and application software development services for collaboration, visualization and unified communications and is aligned with major manufacturers to provide the products and technology for seamless integrated and enhanced user experience for enterprise solutions.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The consolidated financial statements of WPCS International Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (“WPCS”) and its wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries, (collectively, the “Company”) included in this Report for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, reflect the accounts of current and former entities as either continued or discontinued operations, as discussed below.

 

Continued operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015 include the results of operations of the: Suisun City Operations and the Texas Operations, the Company’s only two active operations; WPCS Incorporated, an inactive subsidiary; and WPCS International – Trenton, Inc. (“Trenton Operations”), which was closed in September 2013.

 

With the prior divestitures of The Pride Group (QLD) Pty Ltd. (“Pride”), BTX Trader, LLC (“BTX”) and WPCS Asia Limited, a 60% joint venture interest in Tai'an AGS Pipeline Construction Co. Ltd. (the “China Operations”), as well as the various transactions involving the sale of substantially all of the assets of each of WPCS International - Seattle, Inc. (“Seattle Operations”), WPCS International - Portland, Inc. (“Portland Operations”), WPCS International - Lakewood, Inc. (“Lakewood Operations”), WPCS International - Hartford, Inc. (“Hartford Operations”) and WPCS Australia Pty Ltd. and WPCS International – Brendale Pty Ltd (together, “Australia Operations”), the results of these subsidiaries are included as part of discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2015 and 2016, for the China Operations only.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company is in the process of dissolving the inactive domestic and international subsidiaries listed above, whose operations were discontinued due to the sale of substantially all of their assets.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information furnished herein reflects all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) which are, in the opinion of management, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and the results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the periods presented. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2015.

The results of operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

 

NOTE 2 – LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

  

During the nine month period ended January 31, 2016, the Company completed a series of transactions that it believes will provide it with sufficient working capital and equity to operate its business plans for the next twelve months from the date of filing this report, while it continues to seek growth opportunities, including, but not limited: (i) organic growth to complement and enhance existing operations; (ii) acquisitions; and/or (iii) a viable merger candidate.

 

The transactions included the: (i) elimination of $1,703,000 of promissory notes which were due and payable on September 30, 2015; (ii) issuance of common stock to satisfy approximately $660,000 of the $677,000 of preferred stock dividends payable at April 30, 2015; (iii) completion of a $1,575,000 equity financing; (iv) closing of a $1,000,000 line of credit for the Suisun Operations; and (v) the closing on the sale of its ownership in its China Operations for $1,500,000.

 

Some of these events have provided cash to the Company while others eliminated future cash spending requirements. Along with expected continued operating profits from its Suisun Operations for fiscal year 2016 and lower corporate overhead, these are the primary factors that support the belief that the Company will have adequate liquidity for the next twelve months from the date of this filing.

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

There have been no material changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies to those previously disclosed in the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2015.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made in prior years’ consolidated financial statements to conform to the current year’s presentation. These reclassifications reflect the results of the BTX, China, Australia and Seattle Operations as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

 

NOTE 4 – CONCENTRATIONS

 

Accounts Receivable

 

As of January 31, 2016, two customers comprise 20% and 38% of the Company’s total accounts receivable. Also included in the accounts receivable is retainage receivable of $295,000 and $1,119,000 at January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2015, respectively, and both the retainer and aged accounts receivable are expected to be collected.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2016, 11% was derived from one customer as compared to one customer who generated 57% of the revenue for the same period in 2015. For the nine months ended January 31, 2016, 11% and 19% was derived from two customers as compared to one customer who generated 58% of the revenue for the same period in 2015.

NOTE 5 – BASIC AND DILUTED NET LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic and diluted net loss per common share from continuing operations is computed as net loss from continuing operations less non-controlling interest and dividends on preferred stock, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted net loss per common share reflects the potential dilution that could occur from common stock issuable through the exercise of stock options and warrants and note conversions.

 

The table below presents the computations of loss per share from continuing operations applicable to common stockholders, after consideration of noncontrolling interest and dividends declared on preferred stock, as follows:

 

   For the three months ended   For the nine months ended 
   January 31,   January 31, 
   2016   2015   2016   2015 
Numerator:                    
                     
Loss from continuing operations attributable to WPCS common shareholders  $(1,232,615)  $(3,374,582)  $(8,262,841)  $(8,094,938)
Income (loss) from discontinued operations, basic and diluted   -    (77,789)   862,476    (1,502,256)
Net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders, basic and diluted  $(1,232,615)  $(3,452,371)  $(7,400,365)  $(9,597,194)
                     
Denominator:                    
                     
Basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding   2,597,952    633,158    2,161,104    632,664 
                     
Basic and diluted loss from continuing operations per common share  $(0.47)  $(5.33)  $(3.82)  $(12.80)
Basic and diluted income (loss) from discontinued operations per common share   -    (0.12)   0.40    (2.38)
Basic and diluted loss per common share  $(0.47)  $(5.45)  $(3.42)  $(15.18)

 

The following were excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding due to the losses from continuing operations for all periods presented, as they would have had an anti-dilutive impact on the Company’s net loss.

 

   As of January 31, 
   2016   2015 
Common stock equivalents:          
Common stock options   2,824,000    35,000 
Series F and F-1 preferred stock   -    720,000 
Series G and G-1 preferred stock   -    308,000 
Series H and H-1 preferred stock   1,076,000    - 
Make-whole on preferred shares   -    283,000 
Common stock purchase warrants   1,295,000    16,000 
Totals   5,195,000    1,362,000 

 

NOTE 6 – COSTS AND ESTIMATED EARNINGS ON UNCOMPLETED CONTRACTS

 

The asset, “Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts”, represents revenue recognized in excess of amounts billed. The liability, “Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts”, represents billings in excess of revenue recognized. Costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts consist of the following at January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2015:

 

  11 
 

 

   January 31, 2016   April 30, 2015 
         
Costs incurred on uncompleted contracts  $29,612,932   $32,008,307 
Estimated contract earnings   4,785,975    6,031,338 
    34,398,907    38,039,645 
Less: Billings to date   35,704,161    38,965,672 
Total  $(1,305,254)  $(926,027)
           
Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts  $416,047   $420,434 
Billings in excess of cost and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts   1,721,301    1,346,461 
Total  $(1,305,254)  $(926,027)

 

Revisions in the estimated gross profits on contracts and contract amounts are made in the period in which circumstances requiring the revisions become known. Although management believes it has established adequate procedures for estimating costs to complete on open contracts, it is at least reasonably possible that additional significant costs could occur on contracts prior to completion.

  

NOTE 7 – DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

The Company previously disclosed the details regarding the sales of Pride, BTX, and substantially all the assets of its Seattle operations in its Form 10-K filed for the year ended April 30, 2015.

  

China Operations

 

On June 3, 2015, the Company entered into an Interest Purchase Agreement with Halcyon Coast Investment (Canada) Ltd. to sell TAGS in an "as-is", all-cash transaction, for a total purchase price of $1,500,000 and received a $150,000 refundable deposit at signing. The Transaction closed on August 14, 2015, whereby the Company received the remaining cash proceeds of $1,350,000, of which: (i) it paid approximately $100,000 in a broker’s fee and (ii) $100,000 is being held in escrow for up to one year from the date of the closing, pending a final determination by the Chinese government with respect to any tax obligations arising from the transaction. Otherwise, the transaction is not subject to any further post-closing adjustments. On September 20, 2015, the final tax determination was made and the Company received $93,000 of the escrow and $7,000 was paid to the buyer to settle the outstanding tax obligation.

 

The Company recognized a gain on the sale of the China Operations of approximately $838,000, as it received $1,500,000 in cash, offset by the sale of approximately $9,350,000 of assets, $7,935,000 of liabilities, reversal of approximately $349,000 of accumulated other comprehensive income and $577,000 noncontrolling interest and incurring approximately $174,000 in closing costs.

 

The Company recorded the revenue and profit from short-term contracts from its China Operations under the completed contract method, whereas income is recognized only when a contract is completed or substantially completed. Accordingly, during the period of performance, billings and deferred contract costs are accumulated on the consolidated balance sheets as deferred contract costs and deferred revenue. The Company’s accounting policy is based on the short-term nature of the work performed. Deferred contract costs include equipment lease deposits to the third party vendors of approximately $0 and $969,000 as January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2015, respectively. The revenue results from the China Operations are included in discontinued operations for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015.

 

Since the sale of the China Operations closed on August 14, 2015, the Company has determined that the activity of the China Operations should be classified as discontinued operations for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and the three and nine months ended January 31, 2015. In addition, during the year ended April 30, 2015, the Company had completed the sales of Pride, BTX, and substantially all of the assets of the Seattle Operations. As a result, the Company has reported the financial activity of Pride, BTX and Seattle as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2015. The following is a summary of the operating results for the discontinued operations as follows:

Short-Term Bank Loan

  

As of January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2015, the China Operations had a short-term bank loan of $0 and $3,224,000, respectively, with the Bank of China (the “Short-Term Bank Loan”) with an interest rate of 7.38% due quarterly. The original August 1, 2014 maturity date of the Short-Term Bank Loan was extended to July 31, 2015 at which time it was paid off.

 

  13 
 

 

Due Related Party

 

As of January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2015, the China Operations had outstanding payables, representing interest accrued on working capital loans and cash provided for the purpose of retiring the short term bank loan in the amounts of $0 and $786,000, respectively, due on demand to a related party, TGG. This loan, which was since paid off, was not guaranteed by WPCS. Interest expense for the quarters ended January 31, 2016 and 2015 was immaterial. This payable was classified as short-term liabilities held for sale in the Company’s financial statements as of April 30, 2015.

 

The China Operations earned revenue for contracting services provided to TGG (noncontrolling interest in China Operations) and subsidiaries of $212,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and $835,000 and $1,565,000 for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2015, respectively.

 

Noncontrolling Interest

 

As of April 30, 2015, the Company presented the 40% noncontrolling interest associated with the China Operations as a component of equity. As a result of the sale of our entire ownership interest the balance of noncontrolling interest was eliminated.

 

Noncontrolling interest for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 consists of the following:

 

   January 31, 2016 
Balance at April 30, 2015  $560,915 
Reclassification adjustments of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest on sale of China Operations   (560,915)
Balance at January 31, 2016  $- 

 

NOTE 8 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Preferred Shares

 

Series H Preferred Stock

 

On June 30, 2015, the Company entered into Amendment, Waiver and Exchange Agreements (the “Exchange Agreements”) with certain of its promissory note holders, who held $1,299,000 in principal amount of unsecured promissory notes of the Company. Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreements, the Holders agreed to exchange all of the existing indebtedness for, and the Company agreed to issue to the Holders, an aggregate of 8,435 shares of the Company’s newly designated Series H Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series H Preferred Stock”). The 8,435 shares of Series H Preferred Stock are each convertible into 100 shares of common stock at $1.54 each (the market value of the stock on date of issuance) and therefore no gain or loss was recorded on the extinguishment of debt. For the period from July 2, 2015 to January 31, 2016, holders of Series H preferred stock have converted 5,797 shares of Series H preferred into 579,700 shares of common stock.

 

Series H-1 Preferred Stock

 

Between July 14 and July 20, 2015, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with four Investors pursuant to which the Company issued to the Investors an aggregate of 8,532 shares of Series H-1 Preferred Convertible Stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series H-1 Shares”), and warrants to purchase 1,279,759 shares of common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), with an exercise price of between $1.63 and $1.66 per share (the “Warrants”). The purchase price for each Series H-1 Share was between $163 and $166 and the purchase price for each warrant was $0.1250 per share of Common Stock, for an aggregate purchase price for the Series H-1 Shares and Warrants of $1,575,000.

 

  14 
 

 

The Company has determined that the Warrants qualify for accounting as equity classification. On the issuance date, the Company estimated the fair value of the Warrants at $1,649,000 under the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following primary assumptions: contractual term of 5.0 years, volatility rate of 103%, risk-free interest rate of 2% and expected dividend rate of 0%. Based on the Warrant’s relative fair value to the fair value of the Series H-1 Preferred Convertible Stock, approximately $841,000 of the $1,575,000 of proceeds was allocated to the Warrants, creating a corresponding preferred stock discount in the same amount. 

 

Due to the reduction of allocated proceeds to Series H-1 Shares the effective conversion price was approximately $0.80 per share or $704,000 in aggregate. Since the conversion option of the preferred stock was immediately exercisable, the amount allocated to the Beneficial Conversion Feature was immediately accreted to preferred dividends, resulting in an increase in the carrying value of the preferred stock. On July 14 and July 20, 2015, the Company recorded total deemed dividends of $704,000 related to the beneficial conversion feature with the issuance of the Series H-1 Preferred Convertible Stock.

 

Each share of Series H-1 Preferred Stock has a stated value of $166 and is convertible into shares of Common Stock, equal to the stated value divided by the conversion price of $1.66 per share (subject to adjustment in the event of stock splits and dividends).

 

For the period from July 20, 2015 to January 31, 2016, holders of Series H-1 preferred stock have converted 413 shares of Series H-1 preferred into 41,300 shares of common stock. The conversion of these shares resulted in a deemed dividend of $41,000.

 

Conversion of Preferred Shares

 

For the nine month period ended January 31, 2016 the Company issued approximately 1,408,000 common stock conversion shares, 205,000 common stock make-whole shares and 46,000 common stock dividend shares upon the conversion of series F, F-1, G, G-1, H and H-1 preferred shares. As a result of these conversions, the Company has no further preferred dividend obligations under any of the former classes of Series F, F-1, G, and G-1 preferred shares.

 

Common Stock Purchase Warrants

 

The following is an approximate summary of the common stock warrant activity for the nine months ended January 31, 2016: 

 

       Weighted   Weighted 
       Average   Average

   Warrants   Price   Life in years

Overview

 

The Company currently specializes in contracting services offering communications infrastructure through its Suisun City Operations. In addition, on January 18, 2016 we announced the launch of our Texas Operations where we plan to build a communication and security infrastructure business. On August 14, 2015 we closed on the sale of our joint venture interest in our China Operations and therefore, the financial results of our China Operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, are now included in the results from discontinued operations in our financial statements.

 

Our Suisun City Operations communication infrastructure services offers low voltage communications infrastructure contracting services to the public services, healthcare, energy and corporate enterprise markets. We provide an integrated approach to project coordination that creates cost-effective solutions. Corporations, government entities, healthcare organizations and educational institutions depend on the reliability and accuracy of voice, data and video communications. However, the potential for this new technology cannot be realized without the right infrastructure to support the convergence of technology. In this regard, we create integrated building systems, including the installation of advanced structured cabling systems. We specialize in wireless technology and a combination of various technologies to develop a cost effective network for a customer's wireless communication requirements. This includes Wi-Fi networks, point-to-point systems, cellular networks, in-building systems and two-way communication systems. We support the integration of telecommunications, life safety, security and HVAC and design for future growth by building in additional capacity for expansion as new capabilities are added.

 

For the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016, we generated revenues from continuing operations of $3,318,000 and $11,606,000, respectively, as compared to $5,262,000 and $17,416,000, respectively, for the same periods in 2015. Our backlog at January 31, 2016 was $13,836,000 as compared to $10,000,000 at January 31, 2015.

 

Company Strategy

 

During the past two fiscal years, our strategy in the contracting services segment included divesting certain operations through the sales of Pride and the Seattle Operations and closing the Trenton Operations. More recently, the Company completed the sale of its China Operations. In addition, the Company sold BTX, which was focused on opportunities within the digital currency market. With the sale of BTX, the Company no longer conducts business in the virtual currency segment.

 

  18 
 

 

We divested and/or closed these operations either because they were not profitable, or were part of our plan to reduce expenses and liabilities, improve operational performance, as well as to generate cash for working capital and general corporate purposes.

 

Meanwhile, our ongoing plan continues to be to strengthen the Company’s balance sheet as well as to increase revenue, profit and cash flow at our Suisun City Operations and Texas Operations by developing new organic growth opportunities for the Company and seeking viable acquisition and/or merger candidate(s).

 

Current Operating Trends and Financial Highlights

 

Management currently considers the following events, trends and uncertainties to be important in understanding our results of operations and financial condition during the current fiscal year.

 

With regards to our financial results from continuing operations for the quarter ended January 31, 2016, we generated revenue of approximately $3,318,000 as compared to revenue of $5,262,000 for the same period last year. This $1,944,000 decrease in revenue was due primarily to a $2,000,000 decrease in revenue in our Suisun Operations related to work on one major contract with San Francisco General Hospital, which was effectively completed during the last fiscal year.

 

We generated a net loss to common shareholders for the three months ended January 31, 2016 of approximately $1,233,000, or $.47 per common share, which includes: (i) a loss from continuing operations of approximately $819,000, of which approximately $656,000 was non-cash compensation expense related to the issuance of employee stock options; and (ii) approximately $413,000 of non-cash dividends declared on preferred stock.

 

The net loss to common shareholders for the three months ended January 31, 2016 compares to a net loss of approximately $3,452,000, or $5.45 per common share for the three months ended January 31, 2015, which includes: (i) a loss from operations of approximately $476,000; (ii) inducement expense of approximately $3,622,000; (iii) a loss from discontinued China Operations of approximately $89,000; and (iv) approximately $509,000 of non-cash dividends declared on preferred stock, which were partially offset by income of $1,052,000 from section 16 settlements.

 

We believe that our low voltage communication infrastructure contracting services for public services, healthcare, energy and corporate enterprise markets will create additional opportunities. We believe that the ability to provide comprehensive communications infrastructure contracting services gives us a competitive advantage. In regards to strategic development, our focus is on identifying growth opportunities and we feel optimistic about the markets we serve as evidenced by our new contract awards and customers continuing to seek bids from us, due to our experience in these markets.

 

While we continue to consider and develop growth opportunities, we have completed numerous transactions to improve our balance sheet. These transactions included the: (i) elimination of $1,703,000 of promissory notes which were due and payable on September 30, 2015; (ii) issuance of common stock to satisfy all of the $677,000 of preferred stock dividends payable at April 30, 2015; (iii) completion of a $1,575,000 equity financing; (iv) closing of a $1,000,000 line of credit for our Suisun Operations; and (v) closing on the sale of our China Operations for $1,500,000.

 

In addition, we previously divested certain operations through the sales of our Pride, BTX, the assets of the Seattle Operations, and the closure of unprofitable Trenton Operations.

Operating Loss

 

The Company had an operating loss of approximately $823,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2016. This quarter’s operating loss was comprised primarily of $286,000 in operating income from Suisun City Operations and which was offset by $1,077,000 of corporate overhead expenses, of which approximately $656,000 related to non-cash compensation expense recognized on the issuance of employee stock options and a $32,000 loss from the start up of our Texas Operations. For the three months ended January 31, 2015, the Company had an operating loss of approximately $476,000 which was comprised primarily of $236,000 in operating income from Suisun City Operations and which was offset by approximately $712,000 of corporate overhead.

Revenue

 

Revenue for the three months ended January 31, 2016 decreased $1,944,000, or 37%, to $3,318,000, as compared to $5,262,000 for same period last year due to a $1,944,000 decrease in revenue in Suisun City Operations. This decrease was primarily comprised of $2,000,000 related to one customer contract that was completed during the prior fiscal year.

 

 Cost of Revenue

Such decrease in the cost of revenue was due primarily to attracting new contracts with lower subcontracting costs in the Suisun City Operations. Lower costs, on the jobs that were completed, account for the nine percent decrease in cost of revenue.

Cost of revenue, which consists of direct costs on contracts: materials, direct labor, third party subcontractor services, union benefits and other overhead costs decreased $5,117,000, or 36%, to $9,263,000, or 80% of revenue, for the nine months ended January 31, 2016, as compared to $14,380,000, or 83% of revenue, for the same period in 2015. Such decrease in the cost of revenue was due primarily to lower subcontracting costs in connection with lower revenue contracts in the Suisun City Operations.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2016, total selling, general and administrative expenses increased $1,870,000, or 52%, to $5,471,000 as compared to $3,601,000 for the same period in 2015 and which was primarily due to higher: (i) stock compensation expense of $2,059,000 for stock options issued and (ii) salary expense of $161,000; and (iii) various miscellaneous costs of approximately $163,000, all of which were partially offset by lower: (i) professional fees for accounting, consulting and investor relations services of $714,000; and (ii) various miscellaneous costs of approximately $285,000. In addition, for the nine months ended January 31, 2015, the Company had $496,000 of Trenton facility lease, Delaware franchise tax and insurance reductions which lowered the prior period selling, general and administrative expenses.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2016, depreciation and amortization was approximately $46,000 as compared to approximately $46,000 for the same quarter in 2015.

 

Loss from Continuing Operations

 

The Company had a net loss from continuing operations of $2,776,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 as compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $7,395,000 for the same period in 2015. Loss from continuing operations is determined by adjusting the operating loss by the following items:

 

Interest Expense

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, interest expense was approximately $2,000 and $2,838,000, respectively. The significant reduction in interest expense in 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015 is attributable to the exchange of senior secured convertible notes that was completed in November 2014.

 

Inducement Expense

 

While there was no inducement expense for the nine months ended January 31, 2016, the Company recorded an inducement expense of approximately $5,493,000 relating to the exchange of certain senior secured convertible debt and preferred stock during the nine months ended January 31, 2015.

 

  23 
 

 

Income from Section 16 Settlements

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, income from Section 16 settlements was approximately $400,000 and $1,402,000, respectively, as the Company received $400,000 and $1,402,000 in forgiveness of certain promissory notes and receipt of cash as part of the settlements with certain note holders who were defendants named in a Section 16 litigation brought by a shareholder of WPCS. These settlements resolved all issues related to this litigation.

 

Other Income

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, other income was approximately $2,000 compared to approximately $189,000 for the same period in 2015. The large other income item in 2015 relates to the negotiation and eventual reduction of certain accounts payable balances.

 

Net Loss Attributable to WPCS Common Shareholders

 

The Company incurred a net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $7,401,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 as compared to net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $9,597,000 for the same period in 2015. The following items are the adjustments to the loss from continuing operations that result in determining the net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders:

 

Income (Loss) From Discontinued Operations

 

As a result of the disposition of Pride, BTX, China and Seattle Operations, we have recorded all activity related to those subsidiaries as income (loss) from discontinued operations. The cumulative effect is income of $879,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 as compared to a loss of $1,596,000 for the same period in 2015.

 

Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest

 

The Company’s net income attributable to noncontrolling interest related to its China Operations for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 was $17,000 as compared to a net loss of $93,000 for the same period last year. The entire $17,000 net income recorded in 2016 was prior to the sale of the China Operations.

 

Dividends Declared on Preferred Stock

 

As a result of the issuance of preferred stock, we declared dividends, make-whole dividends, and deemed dividends of $5,487,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2016 as compared to $700,000 for the same period in 2014. These dividends are non-cash and were paid in common shares.

 

Effects of Inflation

 

Inflations has not had a material impact on our business. 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources as of January 31, 2016

 

As of January 31, 2016, we had working capital of approximately $2,652,000, which consisted of current assets of approximately $6,687,000 and current liabilities of approximately $4,036,000. This compares to a working capital deficiency of approximately $1,246,000 at April 30, 2015. The current liabilities as presented in the balance sheet at January 31, 2016 primarily include approximately $2,265,000 of accounts payable and accrued expenses and approximately $1,721,000 of billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts.

 

Our cash and cash equivalents balance at January 31, 2016 was approximately $2,408,000.

 

  24 
 

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2016 the Company completed a series of transactions that it believes will provide it with sufficient working capital and equity to operate its business plans for the next twelve months from the date of filing this report, while it continues to seek growth opportunities, including, but not limited to, (i) organic growth to complement and enhance existing operations; (ii) acquisitions; and/or (iii) a viable merger candidate.

 

The transactions included the: (i) elimination of $1,703,000 of promissory notes which were due and payable on September 30, 2015; (ii) issuance of common stock to satisfy the $677,000 of preferred stock dividends payable at April 30, 2015; (iii) completion of a $1,575,000 equity financing; (iv) closing of a $1,000,000 line of credit for our Suisun Operations; and (v) the sale of our China Operations for approximately $1,500,000.

 

Some of these events have provided cash to the Company while others eliminated future cash spending requirements. Along with expected continued operating profits from its Suisun Operations for fiscal year 2016 and lower corporate overhead, these are the primary factors that support the belief that the Company will have adequate liquidity for the next twelve months from the filing date of this report.

 

Backlog

 

As of January 31, 2016, we had a backlog of unfilled orders of approximately $13,836,000 as compared to approximately $14,100,000 at April 30, 2015. We define backlog as the value of work-in-hand to be provided for customers as of a specific date where the following conditions are met (with the exception of engineering change orders): (i) the price of the work to be done is fixed; (ii) the scope of the work to be done is fixed, both in definition and amount; and (iii) there is a written contract, purchase order, agreement or other documentary evidence which represents a firm commitment by the customer to pay us for the work to be performed. These backlog amounts are based on contract values and purchase orders and may not result in actual receipt of revenue in the originally anticipated period or at all. We have experienced variances in the realization of our backlog because of project delays or cancellations resulting from external market factors and economic factors beyond our control and we may experience such delays or cancellations in the future. Backlog does not include new firm commitments that may be awarded to us by our customers from time to time in future periods. These new project awards could be started and completed in this same future period. Accordingly, our backlog does not necessarily represent the total revenue that could be earned by us in future periods.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements other than operating lease commitments.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect our reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses.

 

On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to accrued expenses and stock-based compensation. We based our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

Our critical accounting policies and significant estimates are detailed in the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2015. Our critical accounting policies and significant estimates have not changed substantially from those previously disclosed in the Form 10-K.

ITEM 4 - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Our management, with the participation of our interim chief executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Based on our evaluation, our interim chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of January 31, 2016, our disclosure controls and procedures are designed at a reasonable assurance level and are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our interim chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended January 31, 2016 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
