NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2018 AND 2017

(UNAUDITED)

1.BASIS OF PRESENTATION 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Cynergistek, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “Cynergistek”) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.  These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 28, 2018.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein reflect all adjustments (which include only normal, recurring adjustments) that are, in the opinion of management, necessary to state fairly our financial position and results of operations as of and for the periods presented.  The results for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  As a result, actual results could differ from those estimates.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Cynergistek and its wholly owned subsidiaries.  All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

Based on the Company’s recent integration with CTEK Security and an analysis of how our Chief Operating Decision Maker reviews, manages and is compensated, we have determined that the Company operates in two segments, services and equipment & software resale.  The equipment & software resale operating segment is not reported separately in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, as this segment did not meet the quantitative thresholds established in ASC 280-10-50-12. For the periods presented, all revenues were derived from domestic operations.

We have performed an evaluation of subsequent events through the date of filing these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements with the SEC.

2.RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS 

In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance which provides a single, comprehensive accounting model for revenue arising from contracts with customers (“Topic 606”). This guidance supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. Under this model, revenue is recognized at an amount that a company expects to be entitled to upon transferring control of goods or services to a customer, as opposed to when risks and rewards transfer to a customer. The new guidance also requires additional disclosures about the nature, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flow arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments. We adopted this standard beginning January 1, 2018 and are using the modified retrospective method of adoption. Under the new guidance, based on the nature of our contracts, we will continue to recognize revenue in a similar manner as with the current guidance. Additionally, the unit of accounting, that is, the identification of performance obligations, is consistent with current revenue guidance. Accordingly, the adoption of this standard did not significantly impact our revenues. The additional disclosures required by Topic 606 are presented in Notes 3, 7, 9 and 10.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued a new accounting standard on leasing. The new standard will require companies to record most leased assets and liabilities on the balance sheet, and also proposes a dual model for recognizing


9



expense. This guidance will be effective in the first quarter of 2019 with early adoption permitted. We have evaluated the impact of adopting this guidance and we are preparing for the changes to be made to our consolidated financial statements. We expect the adoption of these accounting changes will materially increase our assets and liabilities but will not have a material impact on our net income or equity.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued a new accounting standard simplifying the test for goodwill impairment. Currently, the fair value of the reporting unit is compared with the carrying value of the reporting unit (identified as “Step 1”). If the fair value of the reporting unit is lower than its carrying amount, then the implied fair value of goodwill is calculated. If the implied fair value of goodwill is lower than the carrying value of goodwill an impairment is recognized (identified as “Step 2”). The new standard eliminates Step 2 from the impairment test; therefore, goodwill impairment will be recognized as the difference between the fair value and the carrying value. The new standard becomes effective on January 1, 2020 with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact that the new standard will have on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued a new accounting standard which is intended to reduce the existing diversity in practice in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are classified in the statement of cash flows. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years with early adoption permitted, provided that all of the amendments are adopted in the same period. We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this standard on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued a new accounting standard which clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or businesses. This guidance will be effective for the Company for the year ending December 31, 2019 and interim reporting periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted for transactions that have not been reported in financial statements that have been issued or made available for issuance. We are currently evaluating the effect of the adoption of this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued new accounting standard which provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in ASC Topic 718. Under the new guidance, modification accounting is required only if the fair value, the vesting conditions, or the classification of the award (as equity or liability) changes as a result of the change in terms or conditions. This guidance will be effective for the year ending December 31, 2019 and interim reporting periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted. We expect the adoption of this guidance will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements or footnotes.

 

3.REVENUES 

On January 1, 2018, we adopted Topic 606 using a modified retrospective method applied to those customer contracts which were not completed as of January 1, 2018. There was no change in revenues reported using this method as compared to the previous guidance. Below is a summary of our revenues disaggregated by revenue source.

5.NET INCOME PER SHARE 

 

Basic net income per share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares of our common stock issued and outstanding during a certain period and is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of our common stock issued and outstanding during such period. Diluted net income per share is calculated using the weighted average number of common and potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period, using the as-if-converted method for secured convertible notes, and the treasury stock method for options and warrants. Diluted net income per share does not include potentially dilutive securities because such inclusion in the computation would be anti-dilutive.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, potentially dilutive securities consisted of options and warrants to purchase 656,318 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.90 to $6.45 per share and 441,000 shares of restricted stock units. Of these potentially dilutive securities, only 146,237 of the shares to purchase common stock from the options and warrants and none of the shares related to the restricted stock units are included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect of including these instruments would be anti-dilutive.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, potentially dilutive securities consisted of options and warrants to purchase 656,318 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.90 to $6.45 per share and 441,000 shares of restricted stock units. Of these potentially dilutive securities, only 207,562 of the shares to purchase common stock from the options and warrants and none of the shares related to the restricted stock units are included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect of including these instruments would be anti-dilutive.

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, potentially dilutive securities consisted of options and warrants to purchase 1,416,747 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.90 to $6.45 per share. Of these potentially dilutive securities, 379,476 of the shares to purchase common stock from the options and warrants are included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect of including the remaining instruments would be anti-dilutive.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, potentially dilutive securities consisted of options and warrants to purchase 1,416,747 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.90 to $6.45 per share. Of these potentially dilutive securities, 448,164 of the shares of common stock underlying the options and warrants are included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect of including the remaining instruments would be anti-dilutive.

7.DEFERRED COMMISSIONS 

Our incremental costs of obtaining a contract, which consist of sales commissions on multi-year contracts, are deferred and amortized over the period of contract performance. Effective January 1, 2018, when we adopted the modified retrospective method of the new revenue recognition pronouncement, we increased deferred commissions by $879,666 with a corresponding increase in beginning retained earnings. Deferred commissions are included in prepaid and other current assets in our consolidated balance sheets. As of September 30, 2018, we had $1,016,751 related to unamortized deferred commissions. We had $211,920 and $633,060 of commissions expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. Commissions expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $232,968 and $611,059, respectively. If we had recognized commissions expense under the full retrospective approach, commission expense would have been $171,611 and $507,799, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

8.INTANGIBLE ASSETS

9.DEFERRED REVENUE 

We record deferred revenues when amounts are billed to customers, or cash is received from customers, in advance of our performance. $578,725 and $932,994 of managed services revenues were recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, that was included in deferred revenue at the beginning of the respective periods. $523,505 and $250,766 of consulting and professional services revenues were recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, that was included in deferred revenue at the beginning of the respective periods.

10.REMAINING PERFORMANCE OBLIGATIONS 

Remaining performance obligations represent the amount of revenue from fixed-fee contracts, including those which have potential early cancellation provisions, for which work has not been performed. As of September 30, 2018, approximately $23,000,000 of revenue from fixed-fee contracts is expected to be recognized from these remaining performance obligations. We expect to recognize revenue on approximately 88% of these remaining performance obligations over the next 24 months, with the balance thereafter. We elected to utilize the practical expedient exemption to exclude from this disclosure the amount of revenue from contracts which are not fixed-fee and where we do not have the right to invoice until the services have been performed.

11.LINE OF CREDIT AND TERM LOAN 

On January 13, 2017, as part of the acquisition of CTEK Security, Inc. (formerly CynergisTek, Inc.), we entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “A&R Credit Agreement”) with California Bank and Trust and Avidbank Corporate Finance, a Division of Avidbank (collectively the “Lenders”).  The A&R Credit Agreement amended a loan and security agreement originally entered into on May 4, 2012, as amended by several amendments, between the Company and AvidBank Corporate Finance.  Under the A&R Credit Agreement, the term of the revolving line-of-credit was available through January 13, 2019 at an interest rate of prime plus 1.0% per annum.  The amount available to us at any given time was the lesser of (a) $5.0 million, or (b) the amount available under our borrowing base (80% of our eligible accounts receivable, minus (1) accrued client lease payables, and minus (2) accrued equipment pool liability). As of December 31, 2017, no amounts were outstanding under the line of credit.  The A&R Credit Agreement provided a term loan facility for $14,000,000. As of December 31, 2017, outstanding borrowings under the term loan were $11,818,333 at an interest rate of 6.0%.  We were in compliance with all covenants set forth in the A&R Credit Agreement as of December 31, 2017.

Debt Restructuring

On March 12, 2018, we entered into a Credit Agreement (together with the other related documents defined therein, the “Credit Agreement”) with BMO Harris Bank N.A., a national banking association (“Bank”), as lender (the “BMO Loan”).

The purposes of the BMO Loan are (1) to refinance and replace the facilities under the A&R Credit Agreement, thus terminating that agreement as of March 12, 2018, (2) to refinance $2,250,000 of a promissory note held by Michael McMillan (the “McMillan Seller Note”), (3) to finance payments to Dr. Michael Hernandez (f/k/a Dr. Michael G.

Loan Facilities

Term Loan:  Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Bank agreed to provide a term loan in the amount of $17,250,000 to the Company, which was paid in accordance with the purpose of the BMO Loan as described above.  Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Company may elect that the term loan be outstanding as Base Rate Loans or Eurodollar Loans. The term loan is payable in principal payment installments on the last day of each fiscal quarter, commencing on June 30, 2018. All principal and interest not sooner paid on the term loan shall be due and payable on September 12, 2022, the final maturity thereof. As of September 30, 2018, outstanding borrowings under the term loan were $16,017,857 at an interest rate of 5.64%.

Revolving Line of Credit: Additionally, pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Bank agreed to provide a revolving loan or loans to the Company in an aggregate amount of up to $5,000,000 with a $500,000 sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit.

Each revolving loan, both for principal and interest then outstanding, shall mature and be due and payable on March 12, 2020, or such earlier date on which the Revolving Credit Commitment (as defined in the Credit Agreement) is terminated in whole pursuant to the Credit Agreement.

Beginning June 30, 2018, we are required to maintain certain financial covenants in connection with the Credit Agreement, including a total leverage ratio, a senior leverage ratio, and a fixed charge coverage ratio. These covenants contain ratios which change over relevant periods of the Credit Agreement and can be found in Section 7.13 of the Credit Agreement. As of September 30, 2018, we were in compliance with all of the Credit Agreement’s financial covenants.

Base rate loans (“Base Rate Loans”) bear interest at an annual rate equal to the base rate (defined as the highest of (a) the rate of interest quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Money Rates Section as the prime rate in effect on such day, with any change in the Base Rate resulting from a change in such prime rate to be effective as of the date of the relevant change in such prime rate, (b) the sum of (i) the rate determined by the Bank to be the average of the rates per annum quoted to the Bank by two or more Federal funds brokers selected by the Bank for sale to the Bank at face value of Federal funds in the secondary market in an amount equal or comparable to the principal amount for which such rate is being determined, plus (ii) 1/2 of 1%, and (c) the overnight LIBOR rate plus 1.0%) plus an applicable margin of between 1.50% and 2.50%, depending upon the Company’s leverage ratio.

Eurodollar loans (“Eurodollar Loans”) bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Adjusted LIBOR rate (defined as the quotient obtained by dividing (a) the LIBOR index rate by (b) the maximum reserve percentage, expressed as a decimal, at which reserves are imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (or any successor) on “eurocurrency liabilities,” as defined in such Board’s Regulation D (or any successor thereto), subject to any amendments of such reserve requirement by such Board or its successor, taking into account any transitional adjustments thereto) plus an applicable margin of between 2.50% and 3.50%, depending upon the Company’s leverage ratio.

There were no borrowings on the BMO line of credit for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we paid $37,638 in revolving loan commitment fees associated with the line of credit.

APPLICATION OF CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities.  We evaluate these estimates on an on-going basis, including those estimates related to customer programs and incentives, product returns, bad debts, supplies, investments, intangible assets, income taxes, contingencies and litigation.  We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances.  The results of these estimates form the basis for our judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities which are not readily apparent from other sources.  As a result, actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

We consider the following accounting policies to be most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and those that require the most subjective judgment:

 

· Revenue recognition and deferred revenue

 

We operate under a consolidated strategy and management structure, deriving revenue from the following sources:  

oManaged services 

oConsulting and professional services  

oOffice equipment, hardware and software resales 

Revenue is recognized pursuant to ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (ASC 606).  Accordingly, revenue is recognized at an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to a customer.  This principle is applied using the following 5-step process:

 

1.Identify the contract with the customer 

2.Identify the performance obligations in the contract 

3.Determine the transaction price 

4.Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract 

5.Recognize revenue when (or as) each performance obligation is satisfied 

 

Managed Services

 

Managed services revenue is earned monthly during the term of the contract, as services and supplies are provided at a fixed fee and is recognized ratably over the contract term beginning on the commencement date of the contract. Managed services contracts are typically long-term contracts lasting 3 to 5 years.


21



Our contracts with customers may include provisions that relate to guaranteed savings amounts and shared savings. Such provisions are considered by management during our initial proprietary client assessment. Our historical settlement of such amounts has been within management’s estimates.

 

 

Consulting and Professional Services

 

Consulting and professional services contracts are typically short-term, project-based services rendered on either a fixed fee or a time and materials basis. These contracts are normally for a duration of less than one year. For fixed fee arrangements, revenue is recognized ratably over the term of the project. For time and materials arrangements, revenues are recognized as the services are rendered.

 

Office Equipment, Hardware and Software Resales

 

Revenues from office equipment sales transactions are recognized upon delivery of the identified performance obligation. For equipment that is to be installed at a customer’s location at a future date, revenue is deferred until the installation of such equipment.

 

For hardware and software resales, we recognize revenue on a gross basis, as we are deemed to be the primary obligor in these arrangements. Revenue from the resale of hardware is recognized when delivered to the customer. For software resales, when we do not provide any services that are considered essential to the functionality of the software, revenue is recognized upon delivery of the software. All product warranties and upgrades or enhancements are provided exclusively by the manufacturer. We do not sell any internally-developed software.

 

For hardware and software maintenance arrangements, we recognize revenue at the time of sale on a net basis, as a third-party service provider is deemed to be the primary obligor. Under net sales recognition, the cost of the third-party service provider or vendor is recorded as a direct reduction to net revenues on the statements of operations.

 

Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables

 

We enter into contracts that include multiple deliverables, which typically consist of the sale of Multi-Function Device (“MFD”) equipment and a managed services contract.  We evaluate the deliverables in each contract to determine if they represent distinct performance obligations as defined in ASC 606.  Revenue is allocated to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price. When standalone selling prices are not readily observable, it can be estimated using an adjusted market assessment approach, an expected cost-plus margin approach, or a residual approach. We generally do not sell MFD equipment on a standalone basis, but as we purchase the equipment, we have evidence of the cost of this element.  We estimate the transaction price of the contract to allocate to the managed service unit based on historical cost experience.  Based on the relative costs of each performance obligation to the overall transaction price of the contract, we utilize the same relative percentage to allocate the total transaction price.

 

Deferred and Unbilled Revenue

 

We receive payments from customers based on billing schedules established in our contracts.  Deferred revenue primarily consists of billings or payments received in advance of the amount of revenue recognized and such amounts are recognized as the revenue recognition criteria are met.  Unbilled revenue reflects our conditional right to receive payment from customers for our completed performance under contracts.  

 

· Accounts receivable valuation and related reserves

 

We estimate the losses that may result from that portion of our accounts receivable that may not be collectible as a result of the inability of our customers to make required payments. Management specifically analyzes customer concentration, customer credit-worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment terms when evaluating the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful accounts. We review past due accounts on a monthly basis and record an allowance for doubtful accounts where we deem appropriate.


22



· New customer implementation costs

 

We ordinarily incur additional costs to implement our services for new customers.  These costs are comprised primarily of additional labor and support.  These costs are expensed as incurred and have a negative impact on our statements of operations and cash flows during the implementation phase. We also estimate certain document imaging equipment lease and service costs, as well as expected volumes from managed document services. These estimates may impact gross margin during the implementation phase.

 

· Goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite lives

 

The Company accounts for its business combinations in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 805-10 through ASC 805-50, “Business Combinations” which requires that the purchase method of accounting be applied to all business combinations and addresses the criteria for initial recognition of intangible assets and goodwill. In accordance with FASB ASC 350-10 through ASC 350-30, goodwill and other intangible assets with indefinite lives are not amortized but are tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if circumstances indicate the possibility of impairment. If the carrying value of goodwill or an indefinite lived intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss shall be recognized.

To test for goodwill impairment, first we perform a qualitative assessment. If we determine, based on qualitative factors, that the fair value of goodwill is more likely than not greater than the carrying amount, a quantitative calculation would not be needed. Our methodology for a quantitative assessment of testing for goodwill impairment consists of one, and possibly two steps. In step one of the goodwill impairment test, management compares the carrying amount (including goodwill) of the reporting unit and the fair value. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds the fair value of the reporting unit, then an impairment charge is recognized for the amount by which the goodwill carrying value exceeds the implied fair value of goodwill.

 

· Long-lived assets

 

In accordance with ASC Topic 350, long-lived assets, such as definite lived intangible assets, to be held and used are analyzed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If there are indications of impairment, we use future undiscounted cash flows of the related asset or asset grouping over the remaining life in measuring whether the assets are recoverable. In the event such cash flows are not expected to be sufficient to recover the recorded asset values, the assets are written down to their estimated fair value. Long-lived assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value of asset less the cost to sell.

· Stock-based compensation

 

Under the fair value recognition provisions of the authoritative guidance, stock-based compensation cost granted to employees is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the requisite service or performance period, which is the vesting period.  Stock options and warrants issued to consultants and other non-employees as compensation for services to be provided to us are accounted for based upon the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair value of the option or warrant, whichever can be more clearly determined. We currently use the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the fair value of stock options.  The determination of the fair value of stock-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model is affected by our stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables.  These variables include our expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, the expected term of the award, the risk-free interest rate and any expected dividends. Compensation cost associated with grants of restricted stock units are also measured at fair value. We evaluate the assumptions used to value restricted stock units on a quarterly basis. When factors change, including the market price of the stock, share-based compensation expense may differ significantly from what has been recorded in the past. If there are any modifications or cancellations of the underlying unvested securities, we may be required to accelerate, increase or cancel any remaining unearned share-based compensation expense.


23



· Income taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial reporting requirements and those imposed under federal and state tax laws.  Deferred taxes are provided for timing differences in the recognition of revenue and expenses for income tax and financial reporting purposes and are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.  The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.  Deferred income tax expense represents the change during the period in the deferred tax assets and liabilities.  Realization of the deferred tax asset is dependent on generating sufficient taxable income in future years.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018 Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2017

Revenue

Revenue increased by approximately $1,300,000 to $19,216,066 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same period in 2017. This increase is a result of 1) approximately $1,600,000 less in managed service revenues consisting of approximately $800,000 in additional revenues from the net expansion of existing customers and contracts from new customers offset by approximately $2,400,000 in non-renewals of long-term contracts,; 2) approximately $1,000,000 in additional revenues from the consulting and professional services provided to new and existing customers, and 3) approximately $2,700,000 in equipment revenues in 2018 compared to approximately $800,000 for the same period in 2017. The increase in consulting and professional services was a direct result of our additional efforts in selling these types of services to take advantage of the industry-wide labor shortfall.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue consists of salaries and expenses of direct labor and indirect support staff as well as document imaging equipment, parts and supplies.  Cost of revenue was $13,428,831 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $11,743,838 for the same period in 2017. We incurred approximately $200,000 less in staffing costs, including contract labor, largely as a result of the net reduction in managed services contracts. Equipment costs increased by approximately $1,900,000 in 2018, directly as a result of the increase in equipment revenues from copier fleet refresh activities.

Gross margin dollars for the three months ended September 30, 2018 are lower by $366,003 in comparison to the same period in 2017, due to the reduction in managed services revenues, partially offset by the increase in professional services and consulting revenues. Gross margin was 30% of revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to 34% for the same period in 2017. While our managed, consulting and professional services maintained consistent gross margin percentages, the overall decrease is due primarily to the increase in lower margin equipment revenues in the third quarter of 2018.

Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing expenses include salaries, commissions and expenses for sales and marketing personnel, travel and entertainment, and other selling and marketing costs. Sales and marketing expenses were $1,313,388 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $1,329,909 for the same period in 2017. Our sales and marketing efforts were relatively consistent for the compared periods.


24



General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses include personnel costs for finance, administration, information systems, and general management, as well as facilities expenses, professional fees, legal expenses and other administrative costs. General and administrative expenses decreased by $59,205 to $1,789,959 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $1,849,164 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in general and administrative expenses is attributed to 1) approximately $100,000 more in administrative salaries and related costs reflective of an increase in executive compensation as a result of restructuring earn-out provisions, 2) approximately $100,000 less in professional fees where 2017 included the costs to reincorporate in Delaware and change the Company name, 3) approximately $100,000 less in bad debt expense in 2018, 4) approximately $100,000 less in rent and related office expenses due to consolidating Texas offices in 2018 and 5) approximately $100,000 increase in stock compensation expense as a result of an increase in the issuance of restricted stock units to key employees and board members.

Depreciation

Depreciation remained steady at $84,840 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to $97,568 for the same period in 2017.

Amortization of Acquisition-Related Intangibles

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles decreased by $67,296 to $452,734 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to $520,030 for the same period in 2017. The decrease is primarily a result of impairment charges taken in late 2017 on identified intangible assets associated with the acquisitions of Delphiis, Inc. and Redspin which would otherwise be amortized in future periods.

Other Income (Expense)

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $348,480 compared to $373,408 for the same period in 2017. The slight decrease was due to a lower interest rate on the bank term loan for the compared periods.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $643,725 compared to $895,360 for the same period in 2017. Income tax expense is based on estimated annual income tax rates that we anticipate for the tax years. The lower 2018 effective tax rate is reflective of lower U.S. corporate income tax rates compared with 2017.

For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018 Compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017

Revenue

Revenue decreased by approximately $400,000 to $52,536,317 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same period in 2017. This decrease is a result of 1) approximately $5,400,000 less in managed service revenues consisting of approximately $3,400,000 in additional revenues from the net expansion of existing customers and contracts from new customers, offset by approximately $8,800,000 in non-renewals of long-term contracts; 2) approximately $1,900,000 in additional revenues from consulting and professional services provided to new and existing customers, and 3) approximately $5,700,000 in equipment revenues in 2018 compared to approximately $2,600,000 for the same period in 2017. The increase in consulting and professional services was a direct result of our additional efforts in selling these types of services to take advantage of the industry-wide labor shortfall.


25



Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue consists of salaries and expenses of direct labor and indirect support staff as well as document imaging equipment, parts and supplies.  Cost of revenue was $38,131,617 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $37,847,138 for the same period in 2017. We incurred approximately $1,000,000 less in staffing costs, including contract labor, approximately $1,200,000 less in supplies and third-party services, and approximately $300,00 less in travel costs, largely as a result of the net reduction in managed services contracts. Equipment costs increased by approximately $3,000,000 in 2018, directly as a result of the increase in equipment revenues from copier fleet refresh activities.

Gross margin dollars for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 are lower by $698,840 in comparison to the same period in 2017, due to the reduction in managed services revenues, partially offset by the increase in professional services and consulting revenues. Gross margin was 27% of revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to 29% for the same period in 2017. While our managed, consulting and professional services maintained consistent gross margin percentages, the overall decrease is due primarily to the increase in lower margin equipment revenues in 2018.

Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing expenses include salaries, commissions and expenses for sales and marketing personnel, travel and entertainment, and other selling and marketing costs. Sales and marketing expenses were $4,288,893 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $4,070,765 for the same period in 2017. Sales staff compensation increased by approximately $100,000 and tradeshow and forum related marketing expenses were approximately $100,000 more in 2018 as we actively pursue new business.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses include personnel costs for finance, administration, information systems, and general management, as well as facilities expenses, professional fees, legal expenses and other administrative costs. General and administrative expenses increased by $528,460 to $6,405,355 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to $5,876,895 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in general and administrative expenses is attributed to 1) approximately $600,000 in severance paid to a departed executive, accounting and other administrative staff related to CTEK Security; 2) approximately $300,000 increase in administrative salaries and related costs reflective of an increase in executive compensation as a result of restructuring earn-out provisions as well as hiring additional recruiting and IT positions; 3) approximately $200,000 increase in stock compensation expense as a result of an increase in the issuance of restricted stock units to key employees and board members; 4) approximately $300,000 decrease in professional fees in 2018, where in 2017 professional fees were incurred in connection with the acquisition of CTEK Security as well as to reincorporate in Delaware and change the Company name, and 5) approximately $300,000 less in office and travel costs in 2018 where there was an increase in 2017 as a result of the integration of the newly acquired CTEK Security Texas office.

Depreciation

Depreciation remained steady at $265,424 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to $287,727 for the same period in 2017.

Amortization of Acquisition-Related Intangibles

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles decreased by $202,515 to $1,358,201 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to $1,560,716 for the same period in 2017. The decrease is a primarily a result of impairment charges taken in late 2017 on identified intangible assets associated with the acquisitions of Delphiis, Inc. and Redspin which would otherwise be amortized in future periods.


26



Other Income (Expense)

Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $1,103,592 compared to $1,162,289 for the same period in 2017. The slight decrease was due to a lower interest rate on the bank term loan for the compared periods.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $415,363 compared to $976,899 for the same period in 2017. Income tax expense is based on estimated annual income tax rates that we anticipate for the tax years. The lower 2018 effective tax rate is reflective of lower U.S. corporate income tax rates compared with 2017.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At September 30, 2018, our cash and cash equivalents were $6,355,427 and our working capital was $6,331,299.  Our principal cash requirements are for operating expenses, including equipment, supplies, employee costs and capital expenditures as well as debt service to our bank term loan and related party sellers’ notes. Our primary sources of cash are revenues from operations and our bank line of credit.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, our cash provided by operating activities amounted to $4,604,286, as compared to $733,380 used for operating activities for the same period in 2017.  The increase in cash provided for operating activities in 2018 is primarily due to a significant improvement in accounts receivable collections from the previous year.

In March 2018, we restructured our debt and paid $6,750,000 of $9,000,000 in sellers’ notes related to the acquisition of CTEK Security, Inc. and repaid approximately $11,200,000 remaining on a bank term loan. To fund this, we borrowed $17,250,000 under a new five-year term loan agreement with a bank where we also have in place the availability of a $5,000,000 line of credit, subject to borrowing base limits. We may seek additional debt financing or equity raises; however, there can be no assurance that additional financing will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. Any financing or equity raises may result in dilution to existing stockholders and any debt financing may include restrictive covenants.  Management believes that cash generated from future cash flows from operations, together with existing cash reserves will be sufficient to sustain our business operations over at least the next twelve months.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

Our off-balance sheet arrangements consist primarily of conventional operating leases arising in the normal course of business, as further discussed below under “Contractual Obligations and Contingent Liabilities and Commitments.” As of September 30, 2018, we did not have any other relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partners, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes.

CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES AND COMMITMENTS

As of September 30, 2018, expected future cash payments related to contractual obligations and commercial commitments were as follows:
