VOXX International Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)

(1)    Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of VOXX International Corporation and subsidiaries ("Voxx" or the "Company") have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments), which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for all periods presented.  The results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year or any interim period.  These consolidated financial statements do not include all disclosures associated with consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Accordingly, these statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2013.

We have determined that we operate in three reportable segments, Automotive, Premium Audio and Consumer Accessories. See Note 18 for the Company's segment reporting disclosures.

(2)    Net Income Per Common Share
 
Basic net income per common share is based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted net income per common share reflects the potential dilution that would occur if common stock equivalent securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock.

There are no reconciling items which impact the numerator of basic and diluted net income per common share.  A reconciliation between the denominator of basic and diluted net income per common share is as follows:

 
 
Three Months Ended
August 31,
 
Six Months Ended

2013
 
2012

24,122,364

 
23,397,769

Stock options, warrants and restricted stock
 
136,424

 
202,160

 
182,149

24,258,788

 
23,599,929

 
24,103,468

 
23,349,617

 
Stock options and warrants of 0 for both the three months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012 and 0 and 874,859 for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, were not included in the net income per diluted share calculation because the exercise price of these options and warrants was greater than the average market price of the Company’s common stock during these periods or their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.

(3)    Fair Value Measurements and Derivatives

The Company applies the authoritative guidance on “Fair Value Measurements," which among other things, requires enhanced disclosures about investments that are measured and reported at fair value. This guidance establishes a hierarchal disclosure framework that prioritizes and ranks the level of market price observability used in measuring investments at fair value. Market price observability is impacted by a number of factors, including the type of investment and the characteristics specific to the investment. Investments with readily available active quoted prices, or for which fair value can be measured from actively quoted prices, generally will have a higher degree of market price observability and a lesser degree of judgment used in measuring fair value.
Investments measured and reported at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following categories:
Level 1 - Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 inputs that are either directly or indirectly observable.
Level 3 - Unobservable inputs developed using the Company's estimates and assumptions, which reflect those that market participants would use.

The following table presents assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis at August 31, 2013:

VOXX International Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, continued
(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)

The carrying amount of the Company's accounts receivable, short-term debt, accounts payable, accrued expenses, bank obligations and long-term debt approximates fair value because of (i) the short-term nature of the financial instrument; (ii) the interest rate on the financial instrument being reset every quarter to reflect current market rates, and (iii) the stated or implicit interest rate approximates the current market rates or are not materially different than market rates.
Derivative Instruments
The Company's derivative instruments include forward foreign currency contracts utilized to hedge a portion of its foreign currency inventory purchases as well as its general economic exposure to foreign currency fluctuations created in the normal course of business. During April 2013, the Company entered into two interest rate swap agreements to hedge interest rate exposure related to the forecasted outstanding borrowings on a portion of its amended credit facility ("Amended Facility") maturing on February 28, 2017. In June 2013, the Company entered into a third interest rate swap agreement to hedge interest rate exposure related to the forecasted outstanding balance of one of its mortgage notes, with monthly payments due through May 2023. The two swap agreements related to the Amended Facility lock the Company's LIBOR rates at 0.515% and 0.518% (exclusive of credit spread) for the respective agreements through the swaps' maturities. The swap agreement related to the Company's mortgage locks the interest rate on the debt at 3.92% (inclusive of credit spread) through the end of the mortgage. The forward foreign currency derivatives qualifying for hedge accounting are designated as cash flow hedges and valued using observable forward rates for the same or similar instruments (Level 2). Forward foreign currency contracts not designated under hedged transactions were valued at spot rates for the same or similar instruments (Level 2). The duration of open forward foreign currency contracts range from 1 - 6 months and are classified in the balance sheet according to their terms. Interest rate swap agreements qualifying for hedge accounting are designated as cash flow hedges and valued based on a comparison of the change in fair value of the actual swap contracts designated as the hedging instruments and the change in fair value of a hypothetical swap contract (Level 2). We calculate the fair value of interest rate swap agreements quarterly based on the quoted market price for the same or similar financial instruments. Interest rate swaps are classified in the balance sheet as either non-current assets or non-current liabilities based on the fair value of the instruments at the end of the period.
It is the Company's policy to enter into derivative instrument contracts with terms that coincide with the underlying exposure being hedged. As such, the Company's derivative instruments are expected to be highly effective. Hedge ineffectiveness, if any, is recognized as incurred through other income (expense) in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss) and amounted to $(33) and $(30) for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively, and $(27) and $152 for the three and six months ended August 31, 2012, respectively.
Financial Statement Classification
The Company holds derivative instruments that are designated as hedging instruments and has held certain instruments not so designated. The following table discloses the fair value as of August 31, 2013 and February 28, 2013 for both types of derivative instruments:

In connection with the acquisition of Hirschmann on March 14, 2012, the Company acquired foreign currency contracts which were unable to qualify for hedge accounting for the quarter ended August 31, 2012. None of these contracts are still outstanding at August 31, 2013. One and four of these contracts settled during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively, for a gain of $2 and $32 for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively.

Cash flow hedges

During Fiscal 2013, the Company entered into forward foreign currency contracts, which have a current outstanding notional value of $17,100 and are designated as cash flow hedges. No forward foreign currency contracts were entered into during the first or second quarter of Fiscal 2014. The current outstanding notional value of the Company's three interest rate swaps at August 31, 2013 are $52,500, $25,000 and $7,670. For cash flow hedges, the effective portion of the gain or loss is reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings.
Activity related to cash flow hedges recorded during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012 was as follows:

Long-Term Investments

Trading Securities

The Company’s trading securities consist of mutual funds, which are held in connection with the Company’s deferred compensation plan. Unrealized holding gains and losses on trading securities offset those associated with the corresponding deferred compensation liability.

(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)


Available-For-Sale Securities

The Company’s available-for-sale marketable securities include a less than 20% equity ownership in CLST Holdings, Inc. (“Cellstar") and Bliss-tel Public Company Limited (“Bliss-tel").

Unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related tax effect (if applicable), on available-for-sale securities are reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) until realized. Realized gains and losses from the sale of available-for-sale securities are determined on a specific identification basis and reported in Other Income.

A decline in the market value of any available-for-sale security below cost that is deemed other-than-temporary results in a reduction in carrying amount to fair value. The impairment is charged to earnings and a new cost basis for the security is established.  The Company considers numerous factors, on a case-by-case basis, in evaluating whether the decline in market value of an available-for-sale security below cost is other-than-temporary. Such factors include, but are not limited to, (i) the length of time and the extent to which the market value has been less than cost; (ii) the financial condition and the near-term prospects of the issuer of the investment; and (iii) whether the Company's intent to retain the investment for the period of time is sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in market value. No other-than-temporary losses were incurred by the Company during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 or 2012. As of August 31, 2013, the Company owns 72,500,000 shares in its Bliss-tel investment, which carries a value of $0 at August 31, 2013 as a result of other-than-temporary impairment charges incurred in prior fiscal years. Management continues to monitor the performance of Bliss-tel and determined the estimated value of the investment to remain $0 at August 31, 2013. No additional investment was made in the Company during the six months ended August 31, 2013.

Held-to-Maturity Investment

Long-term investments include an investment in U.S. dollar-denominated bonds issued by the Venezuelan government, which is classified as held-to-maturity and accounted for under the amortized cost method.
Other Long-Term Investments

Other long-term investments include an investment in a non-controlled corporation of $2,289 accounted for by the cost method. As of August 31, 2013, the Company held approximately 16% of the outstanding shares of this company. No additional investment was made in the Company during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013.

In addition, the Company issued 17,500 warrants during December of 2012 to purchase the Company’s common stock with the same terms as those of the options above as consideration for future legal and professional services. These warrants are included in the outstanding options and warrant table below and are considered exercisable at August 31, 2013.

During the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company recorded $91 and $363, respectively, in stock-based compensation related to stock options and warrants. As of August 31, 2013, the Company had no unrecognized compensation costs related to non-vested stock options and warrants.

In May of 2011, the Company granted 100,000 shares of restricted stock. A restricted stock award is an award of common stock that is subject to certain restrictions during a specified period. Restricted stock awards are independent of option grants and are subject to forfeiture if employment terminates prior to the release of the restrictions. Shares under the above grant will not be issued to the grantee before they vest. The grantee cannot transfer the rights to receive shares before the restricted shares vest. One-third of the restricted stock awards vested on February 29, 2012, one-third vested on February 28, 2013 and one-third will vest on February 28, 2014. The Company expenses the cost of the restricted stock awards on a straight-line basis over the period during which the restrictions lapse. For these purposes, the fair market value of the restricted stock, $7.60, was determined based on the closing price of the Company's common stock on the grant date.

The following table presents a summary of the Company's restricted stock activity for the six months ended August 31, 2013:

During the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company recorded $63 and $126, respectively, in stock-based compensation related to restricted stock awards. As of August 31, 2013, there was $127 of unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to unvested restricted stock awards. This expense is expected to be fully recognized by February 28, 2014.

(8)    Research and Development

Expenditures for research and development are charged to expense as incurred. Such expenditures amount to $5,730 and $4,984 for the three months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $11,192 and $9,642 for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and are included within engineering and technical support expenses on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss).

The Company recorded amortization expense of $1,442 and $1,432 for the three months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $2,876 and $2,768 for the six months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The estimated aggregate amortization expense for the cumulative five years ending August 31, 2018 amounts to $28,259.

We evaluate the carrying value of long-lived assets, including intangible assets subject to amortization, when events and circumstances warrant such a review. The carrying value of long-lived assets is considered impaired when the estimated undiscounted cash flows from such assets are less than their carrying value. In that event, a loss is recognized equal to the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Fair value is determined by primarily using a discounted cash flow methodology that requires considerable management judgment and long-term assumptions. There were no impairment triggering events during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, therefore, management believes the current carrying value of its intangible assets is not impaired. Our estimate of net

14

future cash flows is based on historical experience and assumptions of future trends, which may be different from actual results. We periodically review the appropriateness of the estimated useful lives of our long-lived assets.

(10)    Equity Investments

As of August 31, 2013 and February 28, 2013, the Company had a 50% non-controlling ownership interest in ASA Electronics, LLC and Subsidiary (“ASA") which acts as a distributor of mobile electronics specifically designed for niche markets within the automotive industry, including RV's; buses; and commercial, heavy duty, agricultural, construction, powersport, and marine vehicles.

(11)    Income Taxes

The Company’s provision for income taxes consists of U.S. and foreign taxes in amounts necessary to align the Company’s year-to-date provision for income taxes with the effective tax rate that the Company expects to achieve for the full year. The Company’s annual effective tax rate for Fiscal 2014 excluding discrete items is estimated to be 36.09% (which includes U.S., state and local and foreign taxes) based upon the Company’s anticipated earnings both in the U.S. and in its foreign subsidiaries.

For the three months ended August 31, 2013, the Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $2,788, which consisted of U.S., state and local and foreign taxes, including a discrete provision of $56. The discrete provision relates to the accrual of interest for uncertain tax positions under ASC 740. For the three months ended August 31, 2012, the Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $2,277.

The effective tax rate for the six months ended August 31, 2013 was a provision for income taxes of 35.5% compared to a benefit for income taxes of 34.1% in the comparable prior period.  The effective tax rate for the six months ended August 31, 2013 is different than the statutory rate primarily due to state and local taxes, differences between the U.S. and foreign tax rates, various federal and state tax credits and the discrete benefit related to complying with a state and local voluntary disclosure program.

(a)          Domestic Bank Obligations
 
On March 14, 2012, the Company amended and restated its $175 million Credit Facility (the "Amended Facility"). The Amended Facility provides for senior secured credit facilities in an aggregate principal amount of $205 million, consisting of a revolving credit facility of $130 million (comprised of a U.S. revolving credit facility of $80 million and a $50 million multicurrency revolving facility, of which up to the equivalent of $50 million is available only to VOXX International (Germany) GmbH in euros); and a five year term loan facility in the aggregate principal amount of $75 million. $110 million of the U. S. and Euro revolving credit facility is available on a revolving basis for five years from the closing date. An additional $20 million is available during the periods from September 1, 2012 through January 31, 2013 and from September 1, 2013 through November 30, 2013. The Amended Facility includes a $25 million sublimit for issuers of letters of credit for domestic borrowings and a $10 million sublimit for Swing Loans.

Generally, the Company may designate specific borrowings under the Amended Facility as either Alternate Base Rate Loans or LIBOR Rate Loans, except that Swing Loans may only be designated as Alternate Base Rate Loans. VOXX International (Germany) GmbH may only borrow euros, and only as LIBOR rate loans. Loans designated as LIBOR Rate Loans shall bear interest at a rate equal to the then applicable LIBOR rate plus a range of 1.25 - 2.25% based upon leverage, as defined in the agreement. Loans designated as Alternate Base Rate loans shall bear interest at a rate equal to the base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.25 - 1.25% based on excess availability in the borrowing base. As of August 31, 2013, the interest rate on the facility was 2.53%.

The $75 million five year term loan facility is payable in twenty quarterly installments of principal commencing May 31, 2012, each in the amount of $3,750. All other amounts outstanding under the Amended Facility will mature and become due on March 13, 2017. The Company may prepay any amounts outstanding at any time,

16

VOXX International Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, continued
(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)

subject to payment of certain breakage and redeployment costs relating to LIBOR Rate Loans. The commitments under the Amended Facility may be irrevocably reduced at any time without premium or penalty.

On April 30, 2013, the Company entered into two interest rate swap agreements to hedge LIBOR interest rate exposure related to a portion of the Amended Facility borrowings. The first interest rate swap agreement applies to interest payments related to the first $60 million of the term loan portion of the Amended Facility and the second swap agreement applies to interest payments related to the first $25 million of the U.S. revolving credit facility balance. The interest rate swap agreements fix the LIBOR rates for these two portions of the Amended Facility at 0.515% and 0.518%, respectively, and mature on February 28, 2017 and April 29, 2016, respectively. For the quarter ended August 31, 2013, these cash flow hedges were deemed to be highly effective. Refer to Note 3 for the unrecognized gain recorded for the quarter ended August 31, 2013 and the interest rate swap asset balance at August 31, 2013.

The Amended Facility requires compliance with financial covenants calculated as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, consisting of a Total Leverage Ratio, a Consolidated EBIT to Consolidated Interest Expense Ratio and Capital Expenditures.

The Amended Facility contains covenants that limit the ability of certain entities of the Company to, among other things: (i) incur additional indebtedness; (ii) incur liens; (iii) merge, consolidate or exit a substantial portion of their respective businesses; (iv) make any material change in the nature of their business; (v) prepay or otherwise acquire indebtedness; (vi) cause any Change of Control; (vii) make any Restricted Payments; (viii) change their fiscal year or method of accounting; (ix) make advances, loans or investments; (x) enter into or permit any transaction with an Affiliate of certain entities of the Company; or (xi) use proceeds for certain items (including capital expenditures). As of August 31, 2013, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants.

The Amended Facility contains customary events of default, including, without limitation: failure to pay principal thereunder when due; failure to pay any interest or other amounts thereunder for a period of three (3) business days after becoming due; failure to comply with certain agreements or covenants contained in the Amended Facility; failure to satisfy certain judgments against a Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries (other than Immaterial Subsidiaries); certain insolvency and bankruptcy events; and failure to pay when due certain other indebtedness in an amount in excess of $5 million.

The Obligations under the Amended Facility are secured by a general lien on and security interest in the assets of certain entities of the Company, including accounts receivable, equipment, substantially all of the real estate, general intangibles and inventory provided that the assets of Hirschmann Car Communication GmbH and the foreign guarantors will only secure the Foreign Obligations. All Guarantors other than subsidiaries of Hirschmann Car Communication GmbH have jointly and severally guaranteed (or will jointly and severally guarantee) the obligations of any and all Credit Party Obligations, and each Foreign Guarantor will jointly and severally guarantee the obligations of Hirschmann Car Communications GmbH under the Credit Agreement (i.e., the Foreign Obligations).

On March 14, 2012, the Company borrowed approximately $148 million under this amended credit facility as a result of its stock purchase agreement related to Hirschmann. As of August 31, 2013, approximately $108 million was outstanding under the line.

As a result of the amendment to the Credit Facility, the Company incurred debt financing costs of approximately $3.4 million which are recorded as deferred financing costs. The Company accounted for the amendment as a modification of debt and added these costs to the remaining financing costs related to the original Credit Facility of $3 million. These deferred financing costs have been included in other assets on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet and are being amortized through interest and bank charges over the five year term of the Amended Facility. During the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company amortized $344 and $688 of these costs, respectively, compared to $303 and $605 during the three and six months ended August 31, 2012, respectively, which are recorded in interest expense.

Foreign bank obligations include a financing arrangement entered into in October 2000, totaling €16,000 and consisting of a Euro accounts receivable factoring arrangement and a Euro Asset-Based Lending ("ABL") (up to 60% of eligible non-factored accounts receivable) credit facility for the Company's subsidiary, Audiovox Germany, which expires on November 1, 2013.  Selected accounts receivable are purchased from the Company on a non-recourse basis at 85% of face value and payment of the remaining 15% upon receipt from the customer of the balance of the receivable purchased. The activity under the factoring agreement is accounted for as a sale of accounts receivable. The rate of interest is the three month Euribor plus 1.9% (2.1% at August 31, 2013), and the Company pays 0.22% of its gross sales as a fee for the accounts receivable factoring arrangement. As of August 31, 2013, the amount of non-factored accounts receivable exceeded the amounts outstanding under this obligation.
 
(c)          Euro Term Loan Agreement
 
On March 30, 2008, Audiovox Germany entered into a new €5,000 term loan agreement. This agreement was for a five year term with a financial institution and was used to repay the Audiovox Germany intercompany debt to VOXX International Corporation. Interest accrued at a fixed rate of 4.82% and payments under the term loan were made in two semi-annual installments. The loan ended on March 31, 2013 and has been fully paid.
 
(d)          Schwaiger Mortgage
 
In January 2012, the Company's Schwaiger subsidiary purchased a building, entering into a mortgage note payable. The mortgage note bears interest at 3.75% and will be fully paid by December 2019.
 
(e)    Klipsch Notes

Included in this balance is a note payable on a facility included in the assets acquired in connection with the Klipsch transaction on March 1, 2011 and assumed by Voxx. The balance at August 31, 2013 is $649 and will be fully paid by the end of Fiscal 2018.

On April 20, 2012, the Company purchased the building housing Klipsch's headquarters in Indianapolis, IN for $10.9 million. The Company paid $3.1 million cash at closing and assumed the mortgage held by the seller, Woodview LLC, in the amount of $7.8 million. Woodview LLC was a related party, as certain members are executives of Klipsch. The mortgage was due in June 2013 bearing interest at 5.85%. On June 3, 2013, the Company refinanced this mortgage with Wells Fargo for an amount totaling $7.8 million. The new mortgage is due in May 2023 and the interest rate is equal to the 1-month LIBOR plus 2.25%. Simultaneously on June 3, 2013, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement in order to hedge interest rate exposure and will pay a fixed rate of 3.92% under the swap agreement. The balance of the mortgage at August 31, 2013 was $7,485.

(f)    Audiovox Germany Loans

Included in this balance is a mortgage on the land and building housing Audiovox Germany's headquarters in Pulheim, Germany, which was entered into in January 2013. The mortgage bears interest at 2.85%, payable in twenty-six quarterly installments through June 2019.

(g)    Hirschmann Line of Credit

On July 15, 2012, Hirschmann entered into an agreement for a €6,000 working capital line of credit with a financial institution. The agreement is payable on demand and is mutually cancelable. The rate of interest is the three month Euribor plus 2% (2.2% at August 31, 2013) and the line of credit is guaranteed by VOXX International Corporation. There was no outstanding balance on the line of credit as of August 31, 2013 and February 28, 2013.

(15)    Foreign Currency

The Company has certain operations in Venezuela. Venezuela has been operating in a difficult economic environment, which has been troubled with local political issues and various foreign currency and price controls. The country has experienced high rates of inflation over the last several years. The President of Venezuela has the authority to legislate certain areas by decree, which allows the government to nationalize certain industries or expropriate certain companies and property. These factors may have a negative impact on our business and our financial condition. In 2003, Venezuela created the Commission of Administration of Foreign Currency ("CADIVI") which establishes and administers currency controls and their associated rules and regulations. These controls include creating a fixed exchange rate between the Bolivar Fuerte and the U.S. Dollar, and the ability to restrict the exchange of Bolivar Fuertes for U.S. Dollars and vice versa.

Effective January 1, 2010, according to the guidelines in ASC 830, "Foreign Currency," Venezuela had been designated as a hyper-inflationary economy.  A hyper-inflationary economy designation occurs when a country has experienced cumulative inflation of approximately 100 percent or more over a 3 year period.  The hyper-inflationary designation requires the local subsidiary in Venezuela to record all transactions as if they were denominated in U.S. dollars.  The Company transitioned to hyper-inflationary accounting on March 1, 2010 and continues to account for operation in Venezuela under this method. In February 2013, the Venezuelan government announced the devaluation of the Bolivar Fuerte, moving the official exchange rate from $4.30 to $6.30 per U.S. dollar.

On June 9, 2010, the Venezuelan government introduced a newly regulated foreign currency exchange system, Sistema de Transacciones con Titulos en Moneda Extranjera ("SITME"), which is controlled by the Central Bank of Venezuela ("BCV"). The SITME imposes volume restrictions on the conversion of Venezuelan Bolivar Fuertes to U.S. Dollars, currently limiting such activity to a maximum equivalent of $350 per month. As a result of this restriction, we had limited new U.S. dollar purchases to remain within the guidelines imposed by SITME. In conjunction with the devaluation of the Bolivar Fuerte in February 2013, SITME was eliminated. The Venezuelan government is in the process of revising the exchange method. The Company is continuing its policy that it will not extend intercompany credit without the receipt of U.S. dollars from this operation.

(16)     Lease Obligations

During 1996, the Company entered into a 30-year capital lease for a building with its principal stockholder and current chairman. This lease was restructured in December 2006 and expires on November 30, 2026.  The Company currently subleases the building to Airtyme Communications LLC for monthly payments of $60 for a term of three years, terminating on October 15, 2015. The Company also leases another facility from its principal stockholder which expires on November 30, 2016.

Total lease payments required under all related party leases for the five-year period ending August 31, 2018 are $5,629.

(18)    Segment Reporting

Effective December 1, 2012, we reorganized our financial reporting into three distinct operating segments based upon our products and our internal organizational structure. The three operating segments, which are also the Company's reportable segments, are Automotive, Premium Audio and Consumer Accessories.

Our Automotive segment designs, manufactures, distributes and markets rear-seat entertainment devices, satellite radio products, automotive security, remote start systems, digital TV tuners, mobile antennas, mobile multimedia devices, aftermarket/OE-styled radios, car link-smartphone telematics application, collision avoidance systems and location-based services.
Our Premium Audio segment designs, manufactures, distributes and markets home theater systems, high-end loudspeakers, outdoor speakers, iPod/computer speakers, business music systems, cinema speakers, flat panel speakers, bluetooth speakers, soundbars, headphones, Apple AirPlay and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance).
Our Consumer Accessories segment designs and markets remote controls; rechargeable battery packs; wireless and bluetooth speakers; personal sound amplifiers; and iPod docks/iPod sound, A/V connectivity, portable/home charging, reception, and digital consumer products.
The accounting principles applied at the consolidated financial statement level are generally the same as those applied at the operating segment level and there are no material intersegment sales. The segments are allocated interest expense, based upon a pre-determined formula, which utilizes a percentage of each operating segment's intercompany balance, which is offset in corporate/eliminations.

Prior period disclosure of net sales by product category has been reclassified to conform with the new operating segment structure which had no impact on our consolidated financial statements. Segment data for each of the Company's segments are presented below:

(19)    Contingencies

The Company is currently, and has in the past been a party to various routine legal proceedings incident to the ordinary course of business.  If management determines, based on the underlying facts and circumstances, that it is probable a loss will result from a litigation contingency and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated, the estimated loss is accrued for.  The Company believes its outstanding litigation matters disclosed below will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial statements, individually or in the aggregate; however, due to the uncertain outcome of these matters, the Company disclosed specific matters as outlined below.
 
The products the Company sells are continually changing as a result of improved technology.  As a result, although the Company and its suppliers attempt to avoid infringing known proprietary rights, the Company may be subject to legal proceedings and claims for alleged infringement by patent, trademark or other intellectual property owners.  Any claims relating to the infringement of third-party proprietary rights, even if not meritorious, could result in costly litigation, divert management’s attention and resources, or require the Company to either enter into royalty or license agreements which are not advantageous to the Company, or pay material amounts of damages. As of August 31, 2013, the Company has accrued approximately $1.2 million related to the potential infringement of certain patents for which the Company has been approached by third parties. No legal action has been taken against the Company as of August 31, 2013 related to these alleged infringements and the Company is currently consulting with legal counsel and engaging in discussions with the third parties in question in order to determine whether infringement has taken place and to remediate such issues,

22

VOXX International Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, continued
(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)

if necessary. The Company believes this accrual is a reasonable estimate of the expenditures required to resolve these matters.

The Company has been a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against several defendants relating to the alleged price fixing of certain thin film transistor liquid crystal display flat panels and certain products containing these panels purchased between the years 1999 and 2006, and the violation of U.S. antitrust laws. This class action suit was decided in favor of the plaintiffs and in July 2013, the judge in the case ordered the distribution of the settlement funds that had been ordered to be put aside by the defendants. Voxx received a sum of $5.2 million during the second quarter of Fiscal 2014 as a result of the distribution of these funds, which has been recorded in "Other Income (Expense)" in the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss). A final accounting of these settlement funds has not been completed as of August 31, 2013 and Voxx expects to receive approximately $1.2 million of additional funds during the third quarter of Fiscal 2014. No gain contingencies were recorded for these additional funds as of August 31, 2013.

The Company was party to a breach of license agreement lawsuit brought against it by MPEG LA, LLC ("MPEG"). During the third quarter of Fiscal 2012, the Company's claim for summary judgment was denied and the case was tried in the New York Supreme Court, Suffolk County. On June 29, 2012, the Company reached an agreement with MPEG and agreed to a settlement of $13.1 million in final resolution of the matter. As a result of this settlement, the Company recorded a charge of $9.5 million during the six months ended August 31, 2012 ($3.6 million had been estimated and recorded by the Company in Fiscal 2012). The charge was recorded in "Other (Expense) Income" in the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss). The Company has sought indemnification from its suppliers for royalty payments previously paid to them that it maintains they were responsible to remit to MPEG and has vigorously pursued its option under its indemnification agreements. The Company completed negotiations with one vendor for an amount of $1.1 million during the first quarter of Fiscal 2013, which was recorded as an offset to the settlement expense as a recovery in "Other (Expense)Income" on the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss), for a net charge of $8.4 million for the six months ended August 31, 2012. Additional recoveries of $5.7 million were negotiated and recorded by the Company during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013. For the six months ended August 31, 2013, no additional recoveries have been recorded related to this lawsuit and the Company is not aware of any additional vendors that it may recover funds from related to this matter.


(20)    New Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-02, "Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income," which requires an entity to report, either on the face of the statement where net income is presented, or in the notes, the effect of significant reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income on the respective line items in net income if the amount being reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified in their entirety to net income. For other amounts that are not required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified in their entirety to net income in the same reporting period, an entity is required to cross-reference other disclosures required under U.S. GAAP that provide additional detail about those amounts. This disclosure only guidance is effective prospectively for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2012 and has been adopted by the Company for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014.

In July 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-10, "Inclusion of the Fed Funds Effective Swap Rate (or Overnight Index Swap Rate) as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes." ASU 2013-10 allows the Fed Funds Effective Swap Rate (OIS) to be designated as a U.S. benchmark interest rate for hedge accounting purposes under Topic 815, in addition to interest rates on direct Treasury obligations of the U.S. government and the London Interbank Offered Rate. The amendments also remove the restriction on using different benchmark rates for similar hedges. The amendments are effective prospectively for qualifying new or redesignated hedging relationships entered into on or after July 17, 2013 and is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In July 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-11, "Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists." The amendments in ASU 2013-11 provide guidance on the financial statement presentation of unrecognized tax benefit when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists. ASU 2013-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2013. The Company will reflect the impact of these amendments beginning in the first quarter of Fiscal 2015. The Company does not anticipate a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows as a result of this change.

portable DVD players.

We believe our segments have expanding market opportunities with certain levels of volatility related to domestic and international markets, new car sales, increased competition by manufacturers, private labels, technological advancements, discretionary consumer spending and general economic conditions.  Also, all of our products are subject to price fluctuations which could affect the carrying value of inventories and gross margins in the future.
 
Our objective is to continue to grow our business by acquiring new brands, embracing new technologies, expanding product development and applying this to a continued stream of new products that should increase gross margins and improve operating income.  In addition, it is our intention to continue to acquire synergistic companies that would allow us to leverage our overhead, penetrate new markets and expand existing product categories through our business channels.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses reported in those financial statements.  These judgments can be subjective and complex, and consequently, actual results could differ from those estimates.  Our most critical accounting policies and estimates relate to revenue recognition; sales incentives; accounts receivable reserves; inventory reserves; goodwill and other intangible assets; warranties; stock-based compensation; income taxes; and the fair value measurements of financial assets and liabilities. A summary of the Company's significant accounting policies is identified in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2013. Since February 28, 2013, there have been no changes in our critical accounting policies or changes to the assumptions and estimates related to them.
 
The Company evaluates its indefinite lived intangible assets for impairment triggering events at each reporting period in accordance with ASC 350. Based on our evaluation, there were no triggering events and no impairment of indefinite lived intangible assets in the quarter ended August 31, 2013. Due to the continued economic volatility, including fluctuations in interest rates, growth rates and changes in demand for our products, there could be a change in the valuation of indefinite lived intangible assets when the Company conducts its annual impairment test.

Automotive sales represented 53.8% and 54.1% of the net sales for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively, compared to 51.5% and 51.6% in the respective prior year periods. The Automotive group experienced increases in its OEM manufacturing lines during the three and six months ended August 31, 2013 due to the launch of new programs with Ford and Nissan at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2013, as well as a new project with Bentley and new remote access launches at Ford, Hyundai and Kia for the Company's remote start products. An additional driver of the increase in Automotive sales for the six months ended August 31, 2013 is due to the fact that the Company's Hirschmann subsidiary, which was acquired on March 14, 2012, was included in the Company's consolidated operations for the six months ended August 31, 2013, as compared to five and a half months of the prior year period. These increases were partially offset by the continued decline in satellite fulfillment sales, as more vehicles are being built with satellite radio; the decrease in sales of aftermarket car radios due to change in demand; as well as lower sales in Venezuela due to foreign currency restrictions resulting from current economic and political conditions.

Premium Audio sales represented 22.2% and 21.5% of our net sales for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively, compared to 23.3% and 21.8% in the respective prior year periods. The decrease in Premium Audio was primarily related to

declines in our European sales as a result of current economic conditions and the discounting of certain products being phased out, offset by sales of new soundbar, bluetooth and cinema speaker products.

Consumer Accessory sales represented 23.7% and 24.2% of our net sales for the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, respectively, compared to 25.0% and 26.4% in the respective prior year periods. The decrease in the Consumer Accessories group was primarily related to decreased sales in our international markets as a result of the prior year conversion of analog to digital broadcasting in Germany, which resulted in higher than normal sales during the first half of Fiscal 2013, as well as due to current economic conditions. In addition, there have been continued decreases in sales of such products as camcorders, clock radios, digital players, digital voice recorders, rechargeable batteries and surge protectors as a result of competition, changes in demand, changes in technology, as well as planned exits of certain products begun during Fiscal 2013. These decreases were offset by increased sales of wireless speaker products, as well as the Company's personal sound amplifier products.

During the three and six months ended August 31, 2013, the release of unearned or unclaimed sales incentives was not material. We believe the reversal of earned but unclaimed or unearned sales incentives upon expiration of the claim period is a disciplined, rational, consistent, and systematic method of reversing these claims.  These sales incentive programs are expected to continue and will either increase or decrease based upon competition and customer demands.
