NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Description of the Business

  

WPCS International Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (“WPCS”) and its wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) currently specializes in low voltage communications, audio-visual and security contracting services, conducting business in one segment at one operations center, through its wholly-owned domestic subsidiary, WPCS International - Suisun City, Inc. (“Suisun City Operations”). During the quarter ended January 31, 2017 the Company began winding down its operations from its wholly-owned Texas subsidiary, WPCS International-Texas, 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.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements of WPCS and its wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries included in this Report for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, reflect the accounts of current and former entities as either continued or discontinued operations, as discussed below.

 

Continuing operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016 include the results of operations of: (i) WPCS (which primarily reflects corporate operating expenses and nonoperating income); (ii) Suisun City Operations and the Texas Operations, (the Texas Operations were closed in February 2017and therefore the Suisun Operation remains the Company’s only active operating subsidiary); (iii) WPCS Incorporated, an inactive subsidiary; and (iv) WPCS International – Trenton, Inc. (“Trenton Operations”), which operations were closed in September 2013.

 

Discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016 include the results of WPCS Asia Limited, a 60% joint venture interest in Tai'an AGS Pipeline Construction Co. Ltd. (the “China Operations”). There are no discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2017.

 

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, 2016.

 

The results of operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

NOTE 2 – LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

As of January 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital surplus of approximately $2,105,000 and cash and cash equivalents of approximately $2,341,000. The increase in working capital from April 30, 2016 is due primarily to an increase in accounts receivable and cash received for an arbitration settlement, offset by an increase in liabilities and cash used to fund our operating loss.

 

The Company's future plans and growth are dependent on its ability to increase revenues and continue its business development efforts surrounding its contract award backlog. If the Company continues to incur losses and revenues do not generate from the backlog as expected, the Company may need to raise additional capital to expand its business and continue as a going concern. The Company currently anticipates that its current cash position will be sufficient to meet its working capital requirements to continue its sales and marketing efforts for at least 12 months from the filing date of this report. If in the future the Company’s plans or assumptions change or prove to be inaccurate, the Company may need to raise additional funds through public or private debt or equity offerings, financings, corporate collaborations, or other means. The Company may also be required to reduce operating expenditures or investments in its infrastructure.

 

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, 2016.

 

Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, that requires management to evaluate whether there are conditions and events that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the financial statements are issued or available to be issued on both an interim and annual basis. Management is required to provide certain footnote disclosures if it concludes that substantial doubt exists or when its plans alleviate substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company adopted ASU 2014-15 as of January 31, 2017, and its adoption did not have any significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes. ASU 2015-17 requires that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. ASU 2015-17 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted this guidance as of January 31, 2017 on a prospective basis, and its adoption did not have any significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15 Statement of Cash Flows - Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which addresses specific cash flow classification issues where there is currently diversity in practice including debt prepayment and proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims. ASU 2016-15 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2016-15 effective as of January 31, 2017. The adoption of ASU 2016-15 did not impact our results of operations or cash flows. 

 

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18 Statement of Cash Flows - Restricted Cash, which requires entities to show the changes in the total of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. As a result, entities will no longer present transfers between cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-18 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2016-18 including retrospective adoption for all prior periods. The impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-18 is the addition of a reconciliation of the totals in the statement of cash flows to the related captions in the balance sheet.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (“ASU 2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 amends the guidance for revenue recognition to replace numerous, industry-specific requirements and converges areas under this topic with those of the International Financial Reporting Standards. The ASU implements a five-step process for customer contract revenue recognition that focuses on transfer of control, as opposed to transfer of risk and rewards. The amendment also requires enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenues and cash flows from contracts with customers. Other major provisions include the capitalization and amortization of certain contract costs, ensuring the time value of money is considered in the transaction price, and allowing estimates of variable consideration to be recognized before contingencies are resolved in certain circumstances. The amendments of ASU 2014-09 were effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption prohibited. Entities can transition to the standard either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption.

 

Subsequent to issuing ASU 2014-09, the FASB issued the following amendments concerning the adoption and clarification of ASU 2014-09. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Deferral of the Effective Date” (“ASU 2015-14”), which deferred the effective date one year. As a result, the amendments of ASU 2014-09 are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue versus Net)” (“ASU 2016-08”), which clarifies the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations in the new revenue recognition standard. ASU 2016-08 clarifies how an entity should identify the unit of accounting (i.e. the specified good or service) for the principal versus agent evaluation and how it should apply the control principle to certain types of arrangements. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing” (“ASU 2016-10”), which reduces the complexity when applying the guidance for identifying performance obligations and improves the operability and understandability of the license implementation guidance. In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients” (“ASU 2016-12”), which amends the guidance on transition, collectability, noncash consideration and the presentation of sales and other similar taxes. ASU 2016-12 clarifies that, for a contract to be considered completed at transition, all (or substantially all) of the revenue must have been recognized under legacy GAAP. In addition, ASU 2016-12 clarifies how an entity should evaluate the collectability threshold and when an entity can recognize nonrefundable consideration received as revenue if an arrangement does not meet the standard’s contract criteria. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact the adoption of these ASUs may have on its financial statements and related disclosures.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The amendment is to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. For public entities, the amendments in ASU 2016-09 are effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company will adopt this guidance as of and for the year ended April 30, 2017. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2016-09 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued an ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805) Clarifying the Definition of a Business. The amendments in this Update is to clarify the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill, and consolidation. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.

    

Accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or other standard setting bodies that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

Reclassifications

 

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

NOTE 5 – BASIC AND DILUTED NET (LOSS) INCOME PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic and diluted net income (loss) per common share from continuing operations is computed as net income (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 income 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 following securities were excluded from the weighted average dilutive common shares outstanding because their inclusion would have been antidilutive.

 

   As of January 31, 
   2017   2016 
Common stock equivalents:          
           
Common stock options   2,422,000    2,824,000 
Series H, H-1 and H-2 preferred stock   760,000    1,076,000 
Common stock purchase warrants   1,791,000    1,295,000 
Totals   4,973,000    5,195,000 

 

NOTE 6 – COSTS AND ESTIMATED EARNINGS ON UNCOMPLETED CONTRACTS

 

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, 2017 and April 30, 2016:

 

    January 31, 2017     April 30, 2016  
             
Costs incurred on uncompleted contracts   $ 17,338,966     $ 28,884,776  
Estimated contract earnings     3,937,103       4,367,463  
      21,276,069       33,252,239  
Less: Billings to date     23,426,467       34,253,318  
Total   $ (2,150,398 )   $ (1,001,079 )
                 
Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts   $ 330,724     $ 357,210  
Billings in excess of cost and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts     2,481,122       1,358,289  
Total   $ (2,150,398 )   $ (1,001,079 )

 

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 11 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Conversion of Preferred Shares – Series H and H-1

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2017, holders of the Company’s Series H Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series H Shares”) have converted 2,630 Series H Shares into 263,000 shares of common stock.

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2017, holders of the Company’s Series H-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series H-1 Shares”) have converted 3,830 Series H-1 Shares into 383,000 shares of common stock. The conversion of these Series H-1 Shares resulted in a deemed dividend of $378,000 due to the beneficial conversion feature associated with the shares converted.

 

Issuance of Preferred Shares – Series H-2

 

On December 21, 2016, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with two investors pursuant to which the Company issued to the investors an aggregate of 3,305 shares of Series H-2 Preferred Convertible Stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Series H-2 Shares”), and warrants to purchase 495,750 shares of common stock of the Company, with an exercise price of $1.21 per share (the “Warrants”). for an aggregate purchase price for the Series H-2 Shares and Warrants of $462,000.

 

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 $462,000 under the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following primary assumptions: contractual term of 5.0 years, volatility rate of 238%, 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-2 Shares, approximately $231,000 of the $462,000 of aggregate fair value 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-2 Shares, the effective conversion price was approximately $0.60 per share creating a beneficial conversion feature of $183,000. Since the conversion option of the Series H-2 Shares was immediately exercisable, the beneficial conversion feature was immediately accreted to preferred dividends, resulting in an increase in the carrying value of the Series H-2 Shares.

 

Registration Statement

 

The Company filed a registration statement on January 25, 2017, for the common shares underlying the series H-2 Preferred Stock and Warrants, and it was declared effective on January 31, 2017.

NOTE 12 – INCOME FROM ARBITRATION SETTLEMENTS

 

On June 16, 2016, the Company entered into a global settlement agreement and mutual release to resolve all disputes and claims regarding the construction of the Cooper Medical School at Rowan University, located in Camden, New Jersey, in which the Company served as an electrical prime contractor. As a result of such settlement, the Company received proceeds of $1,150,000 and recorded a gain in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the nine months ended January 31, 2017. The Cooper Medical School contract was performed under the electrical services segment and is no longer part of the Company’s ongoing operation.

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

 

This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations includes a number of forward-looking statements that reflect Management's current views with respect to future events and financial performance. You can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “may” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate” and “continue,” or similar words. Those statements include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of us and members of its management team as well as the assumptions on which such statements are based. Prospective investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risk and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements.

 

Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Important factors currently known to Management could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes in the future operating results over time. We believe that its assumptions are based upon reasonable data derived from and known about our business and operations and the business and operations of the Company.

Factors that could cause differences include, but are not limited to, expected market demand for the Company’s services, fluctuations in pricing for materials, and competition.

 

Overview

 

The Company currently specializes in contracting services offering communications, security and audio-visual infrastructure through its Suisun City Operations. We previously announced that we launched the Texas Operations in San Antonio, Texas in January 2016 and then commenced operations in Dallas, Texas in April 2016. During the nine months ended January 31, 2017, the Texas Operations generated approximately $881,000 in revenue, while incurring approximately $1,799,000 in cost of revenue and selling, general and administrative expenses in starting these two offices. During November 2016, we instituted some changes and cost reductions in the Texas Operations staffing and related expenses to better align our operational costs with short-term projected revenue expectations. The Company initially anticipated expending approximately $750,000 to develop these markets and the Texas Operations were taking longer than anticipated to begin generating the expected level of revenue to warrant continued operation. Therefore, in late December 2016, we decided to close the Texas Operations and at the end of February 2017 the San Antonio and Dallas offices were closed.. As discussed in the current operating trend section below, revenue from our Texas Operations also included sales of high margin security products. Our plan is to continue to sell those products and recognize the revenue in our Suisun City Operations.

 

During the second quarter of fiscal 2016, we sold our joint venture interest in the former China Operations and therefore, the financial results of the China Operations for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2016, are 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, 2017, we generated revenues from continuing operations of $4,264,000 and $12,528,000, respectively as compared to $3,318,000 and $11,606,000, respectively for the same periods in 2016. Our backlog at January 31, 2017 was $17,138,000 as compared to $13,200,000 at April 30, 2016.

 

Nasdaq Equity Requirements

 

On December 19, 2016, we received a notification (the “Notification”) from the Nasdaq Listings Qualification Department (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company’s stockholders’ equity reported for its most recently completed fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2016 did not meet the minimum requirement of $2,500,000 for continued listing as set forth in Nasdaq’s Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). As reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2016 filed with the SEC on December 15, 2016, the Company’s stockholders’ equity was $2,386,025 as of October 31, 2016.

 

Under the applicable Nasdaq rules, the Company had 45 calendar days to submit a response outlining its plan as to how the Company would seek to regain compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement (a “Compliance Plan”). On February 2, 2017 the Company submitted a Compliance Plan in which the Company also requested an extension of time to meet the stockholders’ equity requirement. Subsequently, on February 13, 2017, the Company received notification from the Nasdaq Staff granting the Company an extension until March 31, 2017 to regain compliance.

 

There can be no assurance that any plan submitted by the Company will be achieved in time to regain compliance by March 31, 2017. Any such failure may impact the liquidity and market price of the Company’s common stock and the Company’s access to the capital markets.

 

Company Strategy

 

During the past two fiscal years, our strategy in the contracting services segment included divesting certain operations through the sales of Pride, Seattle Operations and China Operations.

 

 16 

 

 

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 by developing new organic growth opportunities for the Company and seeking viable acquisition and/or merger candidate(s).

 

The transition from our restructuring plan to a growth plan began during fiscal 2016, as we launched the first wave of organic initiatives targeting revenue enhancement and selected demographic expansion, including:

  

·Strengthening our operations team with proven audio-visual and security systems professionals;

 

·Hiring an experienced direct sales team;

 

  · Uniformly deploying full-service low voltage capabilities for developing, installing and servicing structured cabling, audio-visual and security systems in our California  market; and,

 

·Introducing new recurring revenue product and service offerings.

 

We believe that these initiatives will change the Company’s business and provide more opportunities for growth.

 

Historically, our Suisun City Operations operated primarily as a subcontractor for low-voltage structured cabling systems, which were generally secured through the competitive bidding process. We were not adequately positioned with the resources to deliver a fully integrated offering to include audio-visual and security. As a result, such opportunities had either been lost, or had to be subcontracted to others. However, with the recent additions we have instituted, we are now able to offer a full turnkey service in our Suisun City Operations that will allow us to be fully engaged with our customers well after an initial installation is completed.

 

In addition to broadening our contracting revenue potential and offering higher margin recurring service capabilities, we are also pursuing and securing more corporate affiliations and strategic alliances that will create more direct relationships capable of advancing our business opportunities even further.

 

We have a multi-faceted execution strategy and intend to methodically roll out new initiatives during the fiscal year. Furthermore, we continue to aggressively explore other viable growth opportunities.

 

In addition to the ongoing operational plan, at the corporate level we are evaluating and undertaking new measures to enhance our public company profile by seeking to attract new long-term minded investors, optimize our capital resources for growth and strengthen our Board of Directors.

 

We believe that our operational performance and corporate strategies will have a positive impact towards building shareholder value.

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, 2017, we generated revenue of approximately $4,264,000 as compared to revenue of $3,318,000 for the same period last year. This $946,000 increase in revenue was due primarily to a $734,000 increase in revenue in our Suisun City Operations and by adding approximately $212,000 in revenue from our Texas Operations. As such, the composition of our current revenue is less reliant on one large customer contract than had been the case during previous fiscal quarters. Although we have closed our Texas Operations, we will continue to sell high margin security products (currently sold and recorded as revenue in our Texas Operations) and recognize the revenue in our Suisun City Operations. These products accounted for $132,000 of the $212,000 of the Texas Operations’ revenue mentioned above.

 

We generated a net loss to common shareholders for the three months ended January 31, 2017 of approximately $996,000, or ($0.33) per common share, which includes: (i) income from our Suisun City Operations of approximately $305,000, offset by, (ii) a loss from our corporate division of approximately $470,000, which is comprised of corporate operating expenses of approximately $470,000; (iii) a loss from our Texas Operations of approximately $289,000; and (iv) recognition of $541,000 of deemed dividend on the issuance of Series H-2 Shares.

 

The net loss to common shareholders for the three months ended January 31, 2017 compares to a net loss of approximately $1,233,000, or ($0.47) per common share for the three months ended January 31, 2016, which includes: (i) income from our Suisun City Operations of approximately $286,000, offset by a loss from our corporate division of approximately $1,073,000, which is comprised of corporate operating expenses of approximately $420,000 and $653,000 of non-cash stock option compensation expense; (ii) a loss from our Texas Operations of approximately $32,000; and (iii) recognition of $414,000 of non cash dividends on preferred stock.

 

We believe that our integrated, full service low-voltage communication infrastructure contracting services strategy 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 organic growth and selected acquisition opportunities. We are optimistic about our opportunities in the markets we currently serve, as evidenced by our new contract awards and customers continuing to seek bids from us, due to our experience and strong reputation in these markets.

Operating Loss

 

The Company had an operating loss of approximately $473,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2017. This quarter’s operating loss was comprised primarily of $286,000 in operating income from Suisun City Operations, which was offset by an operating loss of approximately $289,000 from our Texas Operations and $470,000 of corporate overhead expenses. For the three months ended January 31, 2016, the Company had an operating loss of approximately $823,000 which was comprised primarily of $286,000 in operating income from Suisun City Operations and which was offset by approximately $1,077,000 of corporate overhead and $32,000 loss from our Texas Operation. The details of the operating loss are as follows:

 

Revenue

 

Revenue for the three months ended January 31, 2017 increased $946,000, or 28.5%, to $4,264,000, as compared to $3,318,000 for same period last year due to an approximately $734,000 increase in revenue in Suisun City Operations and by an approximately $212,000 increase in revenue from our Texas Operations. This increase in the Suisun City and Texas Operations’ revenue was primarily the result of addition of lower revenue contracts thereby minimizing our reliance on a few large customers. Although we have closed our Texas Operations, we will continue to sell high margin security products (currently sold and recorded as revenue in our Texas Operations) and recognize the revenue in our Suisun City Operations. These products accounted for $132,000 of the $212,000 of the Texas Operations’ revenue mentioned above.

 

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 increased $714,000, or 28.3%, to $3,236,000, or 75.9% of revenue, for the three months ended January 31, 2017, as compared to $2,522,000, or 76% of revenue, for the same period in 2016.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2017, total selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $137,000 or 8.6% to $1,466,000 as compared to $1,603,000 for the same period in 2016, which was primarily due to $307,000 of increased expenses in our Texas Operations and an increase in expense in our Suisun City Operations of $163,000, but offset by lower corporate expenses of $607,000. The Texas Operations had minimal expenses during the three months ended January 31, 2016, the increase in expenses at our Suisun Operation were primarily due to an increased salary expense for the addition of business development personnel while the lower corporate overhead was comprised primarily of lower stock option compensation expense.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2017, depreciation and amortization was approximately $35,000 as compared to approximately $16,000 for the same quarter in 2016, due primarily to the addition of vehicles and office furniture in our Texas Operations.

 

Loss from Continuing Operations

 

The Company had a net loss from continuing operations of $455,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to a loss of $819,000 for the same period in 2016. Loss from continuing operations is determined by adjusting the operating loss by the following items:

 

Interest Expense

 

For the three months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, interest expense was approximately $2,400 and $500, respectively.

 

Other Income

 

During the quarter ended January 31, 2017, the Company recognized $20,000 in other income upon the negotiated settlement of certain accounts payable to an outside vendor as compared to miscellaneous other income of approximately $5,000 for the same period last year.

 

Net Loss Attributable to WPCS Common Shareholders

 

The Company incurred a net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $996,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to a net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $1,233,000 for the same period in 2016. The following items are the adjustments to the loss from continuing operations that result in determining the net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders:

Dividends Declared on Preferred Stock

 

As a result of the issuance of preferred stock, we declared dividends and make-whole dividends of $0 for the three months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to $373,000 for the same period in 2016. These dividends are non-cash and were paid in common shares. As of December 31, 2015, the Company is no longer required to pay any such dividends on any outstanding preferred stock. In addition, as a result of the conversion of some of our Series H-1 Shares during the three months ended January 31, 2017 we recognized deemed dividends due to the beneficial conversion feature associated with the shares converted of $541,000 compared to $41,000 for the same period last year.

Operating Loss

 

The Company had an operating loss of approximately $1,632,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2017. This period’s operating loss was comprised primarily of $833,000 in operating income from our Suisun City Operations, which was offset by an operating loss of approximately $951,000 from our Texas Operations and $1,514,000 of corporate overhead expenses. For the nine months ended January 31, 2016, the Company had an operating loss of approximately $3,174,000 which was comprised primarily of $886,000 in operating income from Suisun City Operations and which was offset by approximately $4,028,000 of corporate overhead, of which $2,174,000 was related to non cash stock compensation expense and $32,000 of loss in our Texas Operation. The details of the operating loss are as follows:

Revenue

 

Revenue for the nine months ended January 31, 2017 increased $922,000, or 7.9%, to $12,528,000, as compared to $11,606,000 for same period last year due to an approximately $41,000 increase in revenue in our Suisun City Operations and by an approximately $881,000 increase in revenue from our Texas Operations. Although we have closed our Texas Operations, we will continue to sell high margin security products (currently sold and recorded as revenue in our Texas Operations) and recognize the revenue in our Suisun City Operations. These products accounted for $250,000 of the $881,000 of the Texas Operations’ revenue mentioned above.

 

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 increased $428,000, or 4.6%, to $9,691,000, or 77.4% of revenue, for the nine months ended January 31, 2017, as compared to $9,263,000, or 79.8% of revenue, for the same period in 2016. This decrease in the cost of sales as a percentage of revenue (higher gross margin) is due to the increase in the number of contracts we have entered into, that provide lower revenue, but higher margin.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2017, total selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $1,085,000 or 19.8% to $4,386,000 as compared to $5,471,000 for the same period in 2016, which was primarily due to $1,118,000 of increased expenses in our Texas Operations and increase in expense in our Suisun City Operations of $311,000 but offset by lower corporate expenses of $2,514,000. The Texas Operations had minimal expenses during the nine months ended January 31, 2016, the increase in expenses at our Suisun City Operations were primarily due to increase salary expense for the addition of business development personnel, while the lower corporate overhead was comprised primarily of lower stock option compensation expense and professional fees.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2017, depreciation and amortization was approximately $84,000 as compared to approximately $46,000 for the same period in 2016, due primarily to the addition of vehicles and office furniture in our Texas Operations.

 

Loss from Continuing Operations

 

The Company had net loss from continuing operations of $317,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to a loss of $2,776,000 for the same period in 2016. Loss from continuing operations is determined by adjusting the operating loss by the following items:

 

Interest Expense

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, interest expense was approximately $5,000 and $2,000, respectively.

 

Income from Section 16 Settlement

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded income of $0 and $400,000, respectively, for forgiveness of certain promissory notes as part of the settlements with certain note holders who were the remaining defendants named in a Section 16 litigation brought by a shareholder of WPCS.

 

Income from Arbitration Settlement

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2017, the Company received $1,150,000 in connection with a global settlement agreement and mutual release to resolve all existing disputes and claims regarding the construction of the Cooper Medical School at Rowan University, located in Camden, New Jersey, in which the Company served as an electrical prime contractor.

 

During the nine months ended January 31, 2017, the Company received $30,000 in connection with a settlement of an outstanding contract in our Suisun City Operations.

The Company had net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $878,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to a net loss attributable to WPCS common shareholders of $7,400,000 for the same period in 2016. 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 From Discontinued Operations

 

As a result of the sale of the China Operations, we have recorded all activity related to that operation as income from discontinued operations. The cumulative effect is no income or loss for the nine months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to net income and a gain on disposal of $879,000 for the same period in 2016. 

 

Dividends Declared on Preferred Stock

 

As a result of the issuance of preferred stock, we declared dividends and make-whole dividends of $0 for the nine months ended January 31, 2017 as compared to $4,743,000 for the same period in 2016. These dividends are non-cash and were paid in common shares. As of December 31, 2015, the Company is no longer required to pay any such dividends on any outstanding preferred stock. In addition, as a result of the issuance and conversion of some of our Series H-1 Shares during the nine months ended January 31, 2017 and 2016 we recognized deemed dividends of $561,000 and $744,000, respectively due to the beneficial conversion feature associated with these shares.

 

Effects of Inflation

 

Inflation has not had a material impact on our business.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources as of January 31, 2017

 

As of January 31, 2017, we had working capital of approximately $2,105,000, which consisted of current assets of approximately $6,459,000 and current liabilities of approximately $4,354,000. This compares to working capital of approximately $2,061,000 at April 30, 2016. The current liabilities as presented in the balance sheet at January 31, 2017 primarily include approximately $1,810,000 of accounts payable and accrued expenses and approximately $2,481,000 of billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts.

 

During the quarter ended January 31, 2017, we raised approximately $462,000 from the sale of Series H-2 Shares and warrants, as disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 22, 2016, to support our cash position.

 

Our cash and cash equivalents balance at January 31, 2017 was approximately $2,341,000.

 

The Company's future plans and growth are dependent on its ability to increase revenues and continue its business development efforts surrounding its contract award backlog. If the Company continues to incur losses and revenues do not generate from the backlog as expected, the Company may need to raise additional capital to expand its business and continue as a going concern. The Company currently anticipates that its current cash position will be sufficient to meet its working capital requirements to continue its sales and marketing efforts for at least 12 months from the filing date of this report. If in the future the Company’s plans or assumptions change or prove to be inaccurate, the Company may need to raise additional funds through public or private debt or equity offerings, financings, corporate collaborations, or other means. The Company may also be required to reduce operating expenditures or investments in its infrastructure.

Backlog

 

As of January 31, 2017, we had a backlog of unfilled orders of approximately $17,138,000 as compared to approximately $13,200,000 at April 30, 2016. 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, 2016. Our critical accounting policies and significant estimates have not changed substantially from those previously disclosed in the Form 10-K.

ITEM 3 - QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable.

  

ITEM 4 - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Our management, with the participation of our 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 chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of January 31, 2017, 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 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, 2017 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
