Forward-Looking Statements

 

The statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Report that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” (as such term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995), within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).  All statements other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements include any statement that may project, indicate or imply future results, events, performance or achievements.  The forward-looking statements contained herein are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. These statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “believes,” “expect,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “intend,” “plan,” “could,” “estimate” or “anticipate,” or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy that involve risks and uncertainties.

The risks and uncertainties mentioned previously relate to, among other matters, the following:

 

·Economic uncertainty and financial market conditions may impact our customer base, suppliers and backlog;

 

·Our backlog is subject to unexpected adjustments and cancellations and, therefore, may not be a reliable indicator of our future earnings;

 

·Our volume of fixed-price contracts and use of percentage-of-completion accounting could result in volatility in our results of operations;

 

·A portion of our contracts contain terms with penalty provisions;

 

·Fluctuations in the price and supply of raw materials used to manufacture our products may reduce our profits and could materially impact our ability to meet commitments to our customers;

 

·Our operations could be adversely impacted by the continuing effects of government regulations;

 

·International and political events may adversely affect our operations;

 

·Our operating results may vary significantly from quarter to quarter;

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Dollars in thousands except share and per share amounts)

 

 

NOTE 1: BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Deep Down, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (“Deep Down,” “we,” “us” or the “Company”) were prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC” or the “Commission”) pertaining to interim financial information and instructions to Form 10-Q.  As permitted under those rules, certain footnotes or other financial information that are normally required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”) can be condensed or omitted.  Therefore, these statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and footnotes thereto, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, filed on March 28, 2013 with the Commission.

 

Preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, the disclosed amounts of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. If the underlying estimates and assumptions upon which the financial statements are based change in future periods, then the actual amounts may differ from those included in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented herein include the accounts of Deep Down, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.

 

Segments

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, our operating segments, Deep Down Delaware and Mako, have been aggregated into a single reporting segment. In August 2012, we consolidated the operations of Mako in Morgan City, Louisiana into Deep Down Delaware in Channelview, Texas. While the operating segments have different product lines, they are very similar. They are both service-based operations revolving around our personnel’s expertise in the deepwater and ultra-deepwater industry, and any equipment is produced to a customer specified design and engineered using Deep Down personnel’s expertise, with installation and project management as part of our service offering to the customer. Additionally, the operating segments have similar customers and distribution methods, and their economic characteristics are similar with regard to their gross margin percentages. Our operations are located in the United States, although we occasionally generate sales to international customers.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

There were no recent accounting pronouncements that materially affected our Company.

 

NOTE 2: LIQUIDITY AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

 

Historically, we have supplemented the financing of our capital needs primarily through debt financings. Most significant in this regard has been the credit facility we have maintained with Whitney Bank, a state chartered bank (and successor to Whitney National Bank, a national banking association) (“Whitney”). Our loans outstanding under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with Whitney (the “Restated Credit Agreement”) were to become due on April 15, 2013.

 

On March 5, 2013, we entered into the Fifth Amendment to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (“Fifth Amendment”) with Whitney; see additional discussion in Note 6, “Long-Term Debt.”

 

We had working capital of $7,509 at June 30, 2013. As a result of the Fifth Amendment and cash we expect to generate from operations, we believe we will have adequate liquidity to meet our future operating requirements.

Whitney Credit Agreement

 

We originally entered into our credit agreement with Whitney in November 2008 to provide us with revolving and letter of credit facilities for our operations.  Our credit facility has been amended and/or restated five times, most recently on March 5, 2013. Under the Fifth Amendment, the Company and Whitney agreed:

 

·to increase the committed amount under the revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility”) to $5,000, and extend the maturity date of such Revolving Credit Facility to April 15, 2014;

 

·to increase the committed amount under the real estate term facility (“RE Term Facility”) to $2,000, extend the maturity date of such RE Term Facility to April 15, 2018, and the Company is obligated to make increasing monthly repayments of principal (along with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) starting at $8, beginning April 1, 2013;

 

·for Whitney to make a new single-advance term loan to Deep Down in the original principal amount of $250 (“Equipment Term Loan”) for the purpose of effecting a purchase of two tensioners (the “Equipment”). The Equipment Term Loan has an interest rate of 4.0 percent per annum and maturity date of April 15, 2018, and the Company is obligated to make increasing monthly repayments of principal (along with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) starting at $4, beginning April 1, 2013;

 

·to change the definition of EBITDA to allow a non-recurring expense in the amount of $117 for closing the operations of Mako and consolidating with Deep Down Delaware in the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012, and to allow a non-recurring charge of $2,156, for the write-off related to impairment of long-lived assets associated with consolidating the operations of Mako, also in the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

 

As of the effective date of the Fifth Amendment, the outstanding principal balance of the RE Term Facility was $1,730. Whitney agreed to make a single advance to the Company in an amount equal to $270 (bringing the balance of the RE Term Facility as of the effective date of the Fifth Amendment to $2,000) to assist in effecting the purchase of the Equipment. As with Deep Down’s other outstanding indebtedness under the credit agreement, outstanding amounts of the Equipment Term Loan are secured by a security interest in all of Deep Down’s assets. The interest rate on all of the loans remains the same at 4.0 percent per annum.

 

As of June 30, 2013, the outstanding indebtedness to Whitney under the Fifth Amendment consisted of $1,968 under the RE Term Facility, $235 under the Equipment Term Loan and $1,670 under the Revolving Credit Facility.

 

Our credit agreement with Whitney obligates us to comply with the following financial covenants:

 

·Leverage Ratio - The ratio of total debt to total consolidated EBITDA for the four most recent quarterly periods must be less than 3.0 to 1.0; actual Leverage Ratio as of June 30, 2013: 1.32 to 1.0.

 

·Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio - The ratio of total consolidated EBITDA for the four most recent quarterly periods to total consolidated net interest expense plus principal payments for the four most recent quarterly periods on total debt must be greater than 1.5 to 1.0; actual Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio as of June 30, 2013: 2.23 to 1.0.

 

·Tangible Net Worth - Our consolidated net worth, after deducting other assets as are properly classified as “intangible assets,” plus 50 percent of net income (if positive), after provision for income taxes, for each whole or partial fiscal year completed after June 30, 2011, must be in excess of $13,000; actual Tangible Net Worth as of June 30, 2013: $19,246.

 

·Moreover, we continue to have obligations for other covenants, including, among others, limitations on issuance of common stock, liens, transactions with affiliates, additional indebtedness and permitted investments.

 

As of June 30, 2013, we were in compliance with all of these financial covenants.

NOTE 7: SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

 

We have a share-based compensation plan, the “2003 Directors, Officers and Consultants Stock Option, Stock Warrant and Stock Award Plan” (the “Plan”). Awards of common stock and options to purchase common stock granted under the Plan have vesting periods of three years and options are exercisable for two years once fully vested. Some awards of stock have performance criteria as an additional condition of vesting. Share-based compensation expense related to awards is based on the fair value at the date of grant, and is recognized over the vesting periods, net of estimated forfeitures. The value of performance-based awards is recognized as expense only when it is considered probable that the performance criteria will be met. Under the Plan, the total number of options permitted is 15 percent of issued and outstanding common shares.

 

Summary of Shares of Restricted Stock

 

On May 29, 2013, we granted 30,000 shares of restricted stock, par value $0.001 per share, with a grant date fair value of $2.00 per share, to a newly-appointed director, who is not an employee of the Company or any of its affiliates.

 

On June 5, 2013, we granted 700,000 shares of restricted stock, par value $0.001 per share, with a grant date fair value of $2.03 per share, to certain key employees.

 

The restrictions on these service-based shares of restricted stock, issued during the six months ended June 30, 2013, will lapse with respect to one-third of the shares on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the effective date of grant.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, we recognized a total of $198 and $172, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards, which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. The unamortized portion of the estimated fair value of restricted stock awards was $754 at June 30, 2013.

 

Summary of Stock Options

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, we recognized a total of $77 and $205, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to outstanding stock option awards, which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. The unamortized portion of the estimated fair value of non-vested stock options was $83 at June 30, 2013.

 

NOTE 8: INCOME TAXES

 

Income tax expense during interim periods is based on applying the estimated annual effective income tax rate to interim period operations. The estimated annual effective income tax rate may vary from the statutory rate due to the impact of permanent items relative to our pre-tax income, as well as by any valuation allowance recorded.  We employ an asset and liability approach that results in the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial basis and the tax basis of those assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that some of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Although our future projections indicate that we may be able to realize some of these deferred tax assets, due to the degree of uncertainty of these projections, at June 30, 2013 management has recorded a full deferred tax asset valuation allowance.

NOTE 9: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

From time to time we are involved in legal proceedings arising in the normal course of business. As of the date of this Report, we were not involved in any material actual or pending legal proceedings.

 

Operating Leases

 

We lease certain offices, facilities, equipment and vehicles under non-cancellable operating and capital leases expiring at various dates through 2023.

 

Letters of Credit

 

Certain of our customers could require us to issue a standby letter of credit (“LC”) in the ordinary course of business to ensure performance under terms of a contract or as a form of product warranty. The beneficiary could demand payment from the issuing bank for the amount of the outstanding letter of credit. There were $1,401 and $827 in LC’s outstanding at June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

 

NOTE 10: EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive common stock equivalents (warrants, stock awards and stock options) outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if options to purchase common stock were exercised for shares of common stock.

 

At June 30, 2013 and 2012, there were outstanding warrants convertible to 0 and 21,941 shares of common stock, respectively. At June 30, 2013 and 2012, there were outstanding stock options convertible to 945,000 and 1,007,500 shares of common stock, respectively. There were no potentially dilutive securities for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 that were included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because their effect would have been anti-dilutive, as the exercise price for the outstanding warrants and options exceeded the average market price for our common stock.

 

NOTE 11: STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Common Stock

 

The number of shares of common stock outstanding is as follows:

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

 

The following discussion and analysis provides information that management believes is relevant for an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition. This information should be read in conjunction with our audited historical consolidated financial statements, which are included in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 28, 2013 and our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, and notes thereto, included with this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Report”) in Part I. Item 1. “Financial Statements.”

 

General

 

We are an oilfield services company specializing in complex deepwater and ultra-deepwater oil production distribution system support services, serving the worldwide offshore exploration and production industry. Our services and technological solutions include distribution system installation support and engineering services, umbilical terminations, loose-tube steel flying leads, buoyancy products and services, remotely operated vehicles (“ROVs”) and toolings. We support subsea engineering, installation, commissioning, and maintenance projects through specialized, highly experienced service teams and engineered technological solutions. Our primary focus is on more complex deepwater and ultra-deepwater oil production distribution system support services and technologies, used between the platform and the wellhead.

 

In Part I. Item 2 “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” all dollar and share amounts are in thousands of dollars and shares, unless otherwise indicated.

 

Industry and Executive Outlook

 

The outlook for deepwater and ultra-deepwater drilling and production continues to be very strong. The Gulf of Mexico is beginning to strengthen, and as a result, our business is increasing. Our backlog is $26,000 and continues to grow. We expect to see continuing growth in the deepwater industry for the remainder of the year.

 

In anticipation of the expected increase in business, we leased a new facility in June with 215,000 square feet of covered space. This additional space will allow us to more efficiently produce steel flying leads and expand our umbilical business. We now have the ability to build bigger equipment and take on much larger orders. It will also allow us the ability to load out by rail or barge. The Channelview property will be used for support management, storage and the refurbishment of operator equipment.

 

Results of Operations 

 

Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

 

Revenues. Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $9,156. Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 were $7,904. The $1,252 increase (16 percent) has occurred primarily due to increased demand by our customers for our technologically innovative solutions as a result of our consistently successful project execution.

 

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $3,520, or 38 percent of revenues.  Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $2,871, or 36 percent of revenues. The $649 increase in gross profit was due primarily to the increase in revenues.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $2,366, or 26 percent of revenues.  SG&A for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $2,013, or 25% of revenues. SG&A remained relatively consistent as a percentage of revenues. We would normally expect SG&A to decrease as a percentage of revenues; however, we entered into a strategic long-term operating lease in June 2013.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense not included in cost of sales. Depreciation and amortization expense not included in cost of sales (“D&A”) for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $33. D&A for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $143. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we fully impaired intangible assets associated with the consolidation of our Morgan City, Louisiana operations. This is the primary cause of the reduction in amortization expense in the 2013 period.

 

10
 

 

Interest expense, net. Interest expense, net was $54 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Interest expense, net was $34 for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Net interest expense for each period was generated by outstanding debt, offset by interest income earned on cash and short-term investments. The $20 increase in the 2013 period is due primarily to the Company having higher average interest-bearing obligations in the 2013 period.

 

Equity in net income (loss) of joint venture. Equity in net income of joint venture was $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Equity in net loss of joint venture was $32 for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The CFT joint venture is in the liquidation process. Therefore, current period activity is limited.

 

Modified EBITDA. Our management evaluates our performance based on a non-GAAP measure which consists of earnings (net income or loss) available to common shareholders before net interest expense, income taxes, non-cash share-based compensation expense, equity in net income or loss of joint venture, non-cash impairments, depreciation and amortization, other non-cash items and one-time charges (“Modified EBITDA”).  This measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with US GAAP. The measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing or financing activities, or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with US GAAP. The amounts included in the Modified EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

We believe Modified EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company’s operating performance, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, financing methods, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. It helps investors more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest); asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization); actions that do not affect liquidity (share-based compensation expense, equity in net income or loss of joint venture) from our operating results; and it helps investors identify items that are within our operational control. Depreciation and amortization charges, while a component of operating income, are fixed at the time of the asset purchase or acquisition in accordance with the depreciable lives of the related asset and as such are not a directly controllable period operating charge.

 

The following is a reconciliation of net income to Modified EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012:

 

   Three Months Ended
June 30,
 
   2013   2012 
Net income  $1,022   $639 
Add back interest expense, net of interest income   54    34 
Add back depreciation and amortization   385    462 
Add back income tax expense   49    15 
Add back share-based compensation   235    246 
Add back equity in net loss of joint venture       32 
Modified EBITDA  $1,745   $1,428 

 

Modified EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $1,745. Modified EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,428. Modified EBITDA increased $317 primarily due to increased gross profit before depreciation expense of $682 due to increased demand for our technologically innovative solutions. This increase was partially offset by a $364 increase in SG&A before share-based compensation expense due to increased activity.

 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2013 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2012

 

Revenues. Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $15,314. Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $12,777. The $2,537 increase (20 percent) has occurred primarily due to increased demand by our customers for our technologically innovative solutions as a result of our consistently successful project execution.

 

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $5,686, or 37 percent of revenues.  Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $4,806, or 38 percent of revenues. The $880 increase in gross profit was due primarily to the increase in revenues.

 

11
 

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $4,229, or 28 percent of revenues.  SG&A for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $3,982, or 31% of revenues. Much of the improvement in SG&A is due to savings realized as a result of the consolidation of our Morgan City, Louisiana operations with our Channelview, Texas operations, which occurred in the third quarter of 2012.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense not included in cost of sales. Depreciation and amortization expense not included in cost of sales (“D&A”) for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $66. D&A for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $292. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we fully impaired intangible assets associated with the consolidation of our Morgan City, Louisiana operations. This is the primary cause of the reduction in amortization expense in 2013 period.

 

Interest expense, net. Interest expense, net was $91 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Interest expense, net was $86 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Net interest expense for each period was generated by outstanding debt, offset by interest income earned on cash and short-term investments. The $5 increase in the 2013 period is due primarily to the Company having higher average interest-bearing obligations in the 2013 period.

 

Equity in net income (loss) of joint venture. Equity in net income of joint venture was $1 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Equity in net loss of joint venture was $140 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The CFT joint venture is in the liquidation process. Therefore, current period activity is limited.

 

Modified EBITDA. As noted above, our management evaluates our performance based on Modified EBITDA.  This measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with US GAAP. The measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income or loss, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing or financing activities, or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with US GAAP. The amounts included in the Modified EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

We believe Modified EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company’s operating performance, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, financing methods, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

The following is a reconciliation of net income to Modified EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012:

 

    Six Months Ended
June 30,
 
    2013    2012 
Net income  $1,246   $339 
Add back interest expense, net of interest income   91    86 
Add back depreciation and amortization   764    927 
Add back income tax expense   70    19 
Add back share-based compensation   275    377 
Add back equity in net (income) loss of joint venture   (1)   140 
Modified EBITDA  $2,445   $1,888 

 

Modified EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $2,445. Modified EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,888. Modified EBITDA increased $557 primarily due to increased gross profit before depreciation expense of $944 due to increased demand for our technologically innovative solutions. This increase was partially offset by a $349 increase in SG&A before share-based compensation expense due to increased activity.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Overview

 

Historically, we have supplemented the financing of our capital needs primarily through debt financings. Most significant in this regard has been the debt facility we have maintained with Whitney Bank, a state chartered bank (and successor to Whitney National Bank, a national banking association) (“Whitney”). Our loans outstanding under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with Whitney (the “Restated Credit Agreement”) were to become due on April 15, 2013.

 

On March 5, 2013, we entered into the Fifth Amendment to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (“Fifth Amendment”) with Whitney. Under the Fifth Amendment, the Company and Whitney agreed:

 

·to increase the committed amount under the revolving credit facility (“Revolving Credit Facility”) to $5,000, and extend the maturity date of such Revolving Credit Facility to April 15, 2014;

 

·to increase the committed amount under the real estate term facility (“RE Term Facility”) to $2,000, extend the maturity date of such RE Term Facility to April 15, 2018, and the Company is obligated to make increasing monthly repayments of principal (along with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) starting at $8, beginning April 1, 2013;

 

·for Whitney to make a new single-advance term loan to Deep Down in the original principal amount of $250 (“Equipment Term Loan”) for the purpose of effecting a purchase of two tensioners (the “Equipment”). The Equipment Term Loan has an interest rate of 4.0 percent per annum and maturity date of April 15, 2018, and the Company is obligated to make increasing monthly repayments of principal (along with accrued and unpaid interest thereon) starting at $4, beginning April 1, 2013;

 

·to change the definition of EBITDA to allow a non-recurring expense in the amount of $117 for closing the operations of Mako and consolidating with Deep Down Delaware in the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012, and to allow a non-recurring charge of $2,156, for the write-off related to impairment of long-lived assets associated with consolidating the operations of Mako, also in the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

 

As of the effective date of the Fifth Amendment, the outstanding principal balance of the RE Term Facility was $1,730. Whitney agreed to make a single advance to the Company in an amount equal to $270 (bringing the balance of the RE Term Facility as of the effective date of the Fifth Amendment to $2,000) to assist in effecting the purchase of the Equipment. As with Deep Down’s other outstanding indebtedness under the credit agreement, outstanding amounts of the Equipment Term Loan are secured by a security interest in all of Deep Down’s assets. The interest rate on all of the loans remains the same at 4.0 percent per annum.

 

As of June 30, 2013, the outstanding indebtedness to Whitney under the Fifth Amendment consisted of $1,968 under the RE Term Facility, $235 under the Equipment Term Loan and $1,670 under the Revolving Credit Facility.

 

Our credit agreement with Whitney obligates us to comply with the following financial covenants:

 

·Leverage Ratio - The ratio of total debt to total consolidated EBITDA for the four most recent quarterly periods must be less than 3.0 to 1.0;
   
·Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio - The ratio of total consolidated EBITDA for the four most recent quarterly periods to total consolidated net interest expense plus principal payments for the four most recent quarterly periods on total debt must be greater than 1.5 to 1.0;
   
·Tangible Net Worth - Our consolidated net worth, after deducting other assets as are properly classified as “intangible assets,” plus 50 percent of net income (if positive), after provision for income taxes, for each whole or partial fiscal year completed after June 30, 2011, must be in excess of $13,000;
   
·Moreover, we continue to have obligations for other covenants, including, among others, limitations on issuance of common stock, liens, transactions with affiliates, additional indebtedness and permitted investments.

 

13
 

 

As of June 30, 2013, we were in compliance with all of these financial covenants.

 

We had working capital of $7,509 at June 30, 2013. As a result of the Fifth Amendment and cash we expect to generate from operations, we believe we will have adequate liquidity to meet our future operating requirements.

 

Inflation and Seasonality

 

We do not believe that our operations are significantly impacted by inflation.  Our business is not significantly seasonal in nature.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements in accordance with US GAAP requires us to make estimates and judgments that may affect assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to revenue recognition and related allowances, costs and estimated earnings incurred in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts, impairments of long-lived assets, including intangibles and goodwill, income taxes including the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets, billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts, contingencies and litigation, and share-based payments. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Refer to Part II. Item 2 “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 for a discussion of our Critical Accounting Policies.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

Management believes that recently issued accounting standards, which are not yet effective, will not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

  

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.   The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that such information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive and the principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance that control objectives are attained. The Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide such reasonable assurance.

 

The Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2013, as required by Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, the principal executive and the principal financial officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2013.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.    The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal controls over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act. Although the internal controls over financial reporting were not audited, the Company’s management, including the principal executive and principal financial officer, assessed the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2013, based on criteria issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) entitled “Internal Control-Integrated Framework.” Upon evaluation, the Company’s management has concluded that the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting were effective as of June 30, 2013, except as noted below.


Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.    The Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive and principal financial officer, has concluded that there were no changes in internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.

 

At December 31, 2012, the Company reported a material weakness (“Material Weakness”) related to percentage-of-completion (“POC”) accounting for fixed-price contracts. During the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013, in order to begin to remediate the Material Weakness, the Company created and filled a financial management position within its project operations function, the primary responsibilities of which are to ensure: (a) that initial and updated detailed cost estimates and POC accounting schedules for fixed-price contracts are timely and accurately prepared; (b) proper segregation of accounting for time and materials aspects from POC aspects of contracts containing both; (c) effective financial management review of contract terms; (d) effective communication with accounting personnel, and (e) along with accounting personnel, effective financial management review of the POC accounting revenue recognition calculations.

 

Based on this remediation effort, the Company’s management, with the participation of the principal executive and principal financial officer, has concluded that, although significant progress toward remediation of the Material Weakness has been achieved, the Material Weakness still existed during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013. It is our belief that we will be able to have the Material Weakness fully remediated by the end of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013.
