Financial Status
 
As of June 30, 2018, the Company was not in compliance with its financial covenants with its banks and does not expect to be in compliance at December 31, 2018. The Company has initiated discussions with its banks to obtain waivers for such non-compliance. As a result, long term bank loans amounting to $417,000 were reclassified from long term to short term.

In April 2018, Nistec provided a letter of commitment to the Company to provide additional financing in the amount of up to $2.5 million, valid for one year, of which $2.2 million have been utilized. It should be noted that the Company is making efforts to improve operations and its cash position (including applicable waivers), although there is no certainty that the Company will be able to attain these.
