General:
 
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared pursuant to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and regulations for reporting on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements are not included herein. The Company believes all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of these interim statements have been included and that they are of a normal and recurring nature. These interim statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and notes thereto, included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. The results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, are not necessarily an indication of the results for the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2021.
 
1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Scientific Industries, Inc., Scientific Bioprocessing, Inc. (“SBI”) a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary, and Altamira Instruments, Inc. (“Altamira”), a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary, and Scientific Packaging Industries, Inc., an inactive wholly-owned subsidiary (all collectively referred to as the “Company”). All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.
 
COVID-19 Pandemic
 
The challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy began to impact the Company’s operations at the end of the third quarter of the year ended June 30, 2020. At that time, the Company took appropriate action and put plans in place to diminish the effects of COVID-19 on its operations, enabling the Company to continue to operate with minor or temporary disruptions to its operations. The Company took immediate action as it pertains to COVID-19 preparedness by implementing the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines for employers in order to protect the Company’s employees’ health and safety, with actions such as implementing work from home, social distancing in the workplace, requiring self -quarantine for any employee showing symptoms, wearing face coverings, and training employees on maintaining a healthy work environment. However, if an employee becomes infected in the future, and the Company is forced to shut down for a period of time, it could have a short-term negative impact on operations. At the beginning of the pandemic, the Catalyst Research Instruments and Bioprocessing Systems Operations were shut down due to state mandates, however, the impact on operations was immaterial, and the Company was able to retain its employees without furloughs or layoffs, in part, due to the Company’s receipt of a $563,800 loan under the Federal Government’s Paycheck Protection Program. The Company did not experience and does not anticipate any material impact on its ability to collect its accounts receivable due to the nature of its customers, which are primarily distributors of laboratory equipment and supplies that have the ability to pay. However, there were some delays in receiving some accounts receivable due for catalyst research instruments due to customer shutdowns, and there was a material negative impact on the revenues of the Catalyst Research Instruments operations. The Company has not experienced and does not anticipate any material impairment to its tangible and intangible assets, system of internal controls, supply chain, or delivery and distribution of its products as a result of COVID-19, however the ultimate impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows is dependent on future developments, including the duration or worsening of the pandemic and the related length of its impact on the global economy, which are uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time.
 
Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
 
In August 2018, the Financial Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2018-13, "Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement", which is part of the FASB disclosure framework project to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to the financial statements. The amendments in the new guidance remove, modify, and add certain disclosure requirements related to fair value measurements covered in Topic 820, "Fair Value Measurement." The new standard was effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption was permitted for either the entire standard or only the requirements that modify or eliminate the disclosure requirements, with certain requirements applied prospectively, and all other requirements applied retrospectively to all periods presented. The adoption of this standard on July 1, 2020 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which is designed to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740. ASU No. 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years; this ASU allows for early adoption in any interim period after issuance of the update. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.
  
2. Revenue
 
The Company records revenues in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as amended” (“ASC Topic 606”). In accordance with ASC Topic 606, the Company accounts for a customer contract when both parties have approved the contract and are committed to perform their respective obligations, each party’s rights can be identified, payment terms can be identified, the contract has commercial substance, and it is probable that the Company will collect substantially all of the consideration to which it is entitled. Revenue is recognized when, or as, performance obligations are satisfied by transferring control of a promised product or service to a customer.

Benchtop Laboratory Equipment sales are comprised primarily of standard benchtop laboratory equipment from its stock to laboratory equipment distributors, or to end users primarily via e-commerce. The sales cycle from time of receipt of order to shipment is very short varying from a day to a few weeks. Customers either pay by credit card (online sales) or net 30-90, depending on the customer. Once the item is shipped under the FOB terms specified in the order, which is primarily “FOB Factory”, other than a standard warranty, there are no other obligations to the customer. The standard warranty is typically comprised of one to two years of parts and labor and is deemed immaterial.
 
Royalty revenues pertain to royalties earned by the Company, which are paid on a calendar year basis, under a licensing agreement from a single licensee and its sublicenses. The Company is then obligated to pay 50% of all royalties received to the entity that licenses the intellectual property to the Company. During the year, the Company’s management uses its best judgement to estimate the royalty revenues earned during the period.
 
During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company discontinued its Catalyst Research Instruments Operations through the sale of substantially all of its assets on November 30, 2020. Refer to Note 9 for additional information.

 The Company determines revenue recognition through the following steps:
 
 
Identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer
 
Identification of the performance obligations in the contract
 
Determination of the transaction price
 
Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
 
Recognition of revenue when, or as, a performance obligation is satisfied
 
The Company has made the following accounting policy elections and elected to use certain practical expedients, as permitted by the FASB, in applying ASC Topic 606: 1) all revenues are recorded net of returns, allowances, customer discounts, and incentives; 2) although sales and other taxes are immaterial, the Company accounts for amounts collected from customers for sales and other taxes, if any, net of related amounts remitted to tax authorities; 3) the Company expenses costs to obtain a contract as they are incurred if the expected period of benefit, and therefore the amortization period, is one year or less; 4) the Company accounts for shipping and handling activities that occur after control transfers to the customer as a fulfillment cost rather than an additional promised service and these fulfillment costs fall within selling expenses; 5) the Company is always considered the principal and never an agent, because it has full control and responsibility until title is transferred to the customer; 6) the Company does not assess whether promised goods or services are performance obligations if they are immaterial in the context of the contract with the customer such as is the case with catalyst instruments.
 
 
3. Segment Information and Concentrations

4. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The FASB defines the fair value of financial instruments as the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value measurements do not include transaction costs.
 
The accounting guidance also expands the disclosure requirements around fair value and establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs. The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three levels based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market. Each fair value measurement is reported in one of the three levels, which is determined by the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. These levels are described below:
 
Level 1 - Inputs that are based upon unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.
 
Level 2 - Quoted prices in markets that are not considered to be active or financial instruments for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.
 
Level 3 - Prices or valuation that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.
 
In valuing assets and liabilities, the Company is required to maximize the use of quoted market prices and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The Company calculated the fair value of its Level 1 and 2 instruments based on the exchange traded price of similar or identical instruments where available or based on other observable instruments. These calculations take into consideration the credit risk of both the Company and its counterparties. The Company has not changed its valuation techniques in measuring the fair value of any financial assets and liabilities during the period.
 
The fair value of the contingent consideration obligations are based on a probability weighted approach derived from the estimates of earn-out criteria and the probability assessment with respect to the likelihood of achieving those criteria. The measurement is based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market, therefore, the Company classifies this liability as Level 3 in the following tables.
 
The following tables set forth by level within the fair value hierarchy the Company’s financial assets that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis at December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020 according to the valuation techniques the Company used to determine their fair values:

7. Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share
 
The Company presents the computation of earnings per share (“EPS”) on a basic and diluted basis. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the reported period. Diluted EPS is computed similarly to basic EPS, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential additional common shares that were dilutive had been issued. Common shares are excluded from the calculation if they are determined to be anti-dilutive. The following table sets forth the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for each period presented

Approximately 126,700 shares and 1,349,850 of the Company’s common stock issuable upon the exercise of options and warrants, respectively, were excluded from the calculation for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020, because the effect would be anti-dilutive due to the loss for the periods. Approximately, 51,629 shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon the exercise of the outstanding options were excluded from the calculation for the six months ended December 31, 2020 because they were anti-dilutive.

8. Leases
 
The Company recognizes all long-term leases on its balance sheet as a liability for its lease obligation, measured at the present value of lease payments not yet paid, and a corresponding asset representing its right to use the underlying asset over the lease term.
 
The Company leases certain properties consisting principally of a facility in Bohemia, New York (headquarters) through January 2025, a facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for its Bioprocessing Systems Operations through May 2023, and a sales and administration office in Orangeburg, New York for its Torbal Division of the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations through October 2022. The Company also had a lease for its Catalyst Research Instruments Operations which terminated in November 2020 and the facility was shut down at the end of December 2020 in connection with the sale of that business segment on November 30, 2020. There are no renewal options with any of the leases, no residual values or significant restrictions or covenants other than those customary in such arrangements, and no non-cash activities, Any rent escalations incorporated within the leases are included in the calculation of the future minimum lease payments, as further described below. All of the Company’s leases are deemed operating leases.
 
The Company determines whether an agreement contains a lease at inception based on the Company’s right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of the identified asset and its right to direct the use of the identified asset. Lease liabilities represent the present value of future lease payments and the Right-Of-Use (“ROU”) assets represent the Company’s right to use the underlying assets for the respective lease terms. ROU assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. The ROU asset is further adjusted to account for previously recorded lease expenses such as deferred rent and other lease liabilities. As the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company used its incremental borrowing rate of 5.0% as the discount rate to calculate the present value of future lease payments, which was the interest rate that its bank would charge for a similar loan.
 
The Company elected not to recognize a ROU asset and a lease liability for leases with an initial term of twelve months or less. In addition to minimum lease payments, certain leases require payment of a proportionate share of real estate taxes and certain building operating expenses or payments based on an excess of a specified base. These variable lease costs are not included in the measurement of the ROU asset or lease liability due to unpredictability of the payment amount and are recorded as lease expenses in the period incurred. The Company’s lease agreements do not contain residual value guarantees.
 
The Company elected available practical expedients for existing or expired contracts of lessees wherein the Company is not required to reassess whether such contracts contain leases, the lease classification or the initial direct costs. The Company is not utilizing the practical expedient which allows the use of hindsight by lessees and lessors in determining the lease term and in assessing impairment of its ROU assets. The Company utilized the transition method allowing entities to only apply the new lease standard in the year of adoption.
 
As of December 31, 2020, the weighted-average remaining lease term for operating lease liabilities was approximately 3.1 years and the weighted-average discount rate was 5.0%. Total cash payments under these leases were $76,100 and $154,700 for the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2020 of which $78,800 and $157,500 were recorded as leases expense.
 
The Company’s approximate future minimum rental payments under all leases existing at December 31, 2020 through February 2025 are as follows:

9. Discontinued Operations
 
Effective November 30, 2020, the Company, as part of its strategic shift to becoming a life sciences tool provider, sold its Catalyst Research Instruments Operations reporting segment through the sale by Altamira of substantially all of its assets, which comprised of fixed assets, and inventory to Beijing JWGB Sci. & Tech. Co. Ltd., a corporation formed under the laws of the People’s Republic of China (“JWGB”) for $440,000 payable in cash through January 2021, resulting in a $405,400 pre-tax loss. In order to preserve business continuity for the buyer. Altamira agreed to purchase certain components on behalf of JWGB for which JWGB will reimburse Altamira. At December 31, 2020, JWGB owed the Company $97,600 related to the sale, and $39,500 for component purchases made on its behalf, all of which have been subsequently remitted to the Company. The Company retained all its receivables and payables related to sales made prior to November 30, 2020, certain inventory related to two work-in-process orders which will be shipped by the end of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, product warranty and other miscellaneous liabilities related to certain employee benefits, and expenses related to the closure of the Altamira facility, which was substantially completed at the end of December 2020.
 
As a result of the disposal described above, the operating results of the former Catalyst Research Instruments Operations segment have been presented as discontinued operations in the balance sheets, the statements of operations, and the statements of cash flows, as detailed below.
