WIDEPOINT CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

1.Organization and Nature of Operations

 

Organization

 

WidePoint Corporation (“WidePoint” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on May 30, 1997. WidePoint Corporation is a provider of advanced, federally certified and other customized technology-based products and service solutions to both the government sector and commercial markets. The Company has grown through the merger with and acquisition of highly specialized regional IT consulting companies.

 

Nature of Operations

 

The Company provides advanced technology-based products and solutions through three business segments, which include: Telecommunications Management, Cybersecurity Managed Solutions, and Consulting Services and Products. These segments offer proprietary IP-based wireline and wireless full life cycle service solutions and identity management assurance and data protection services utilizing certificate-based security solutions delivered via WidePoint’s trusted cloud mobility managed services environment; and are supported by other associated IT consulting services and products in which the Company provides specific subject matter expertise in including but not limited to IT Architecture and Planning, Software Implementation Services, IT Outsourcing, and Identity Assurance and Forensic Informatics. See Note 11 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information and financial results for the Company’s operating segments.

 

2.Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2012 and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, included herein have been prepared by the Company, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Pursuant to such regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted. It is the opinion of management that all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement of financial results are reflected in the interim periods presented. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from the audited condensed consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 are not indicative of the operating results for the full year.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly owned subsidiaries and acquired entities since their respective dates of acquisition. All significant inter-company amounts were eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and 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. The more significant areas requiring use of estimates and judgment relate to revenue recognition, accounts receivable valuation reserves, realizability of intangible assets, realizability of deferred income tax assets and the evaluation of contingencies and litigation. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Significant Accounting Policies

 

There have been no significant changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during 2012 from those disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC on March 30, 2012.

7.Income Taxes

 

The Company files U.S. federal income tax returns and various state income tax returns. The Company may be subject to examination by the IRS for the tax year 1995 and forward. Additionally, the Company may be subject to examinations by various state taxing jurisdictions for tax years 2000 forward. The Company is currently not under examination by the IRS or any state tax jurisdiction with the exception of finalizing an income tax return examination by the State of Illinois for the 2007 and 2008 tax years.

 

The Company did not have any unrecognized tax benefits at December 31, 2011 and September 30, 2012, respectively, including interest and penalties. In the future, any interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions will be recognized in income tax expense.

 

The Company recognized an income tax provision for the three months ended September 30, 2012 to reflect a change in the timing and amount of its use of net operating loss carryforwards for the year ending December 31, 2012.

9
 

 

No tax benefit has been associated with the exercise of stock options for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, because of the existence of net operating loss carryforwards. There will be no credit to additional paid in capital for such until the associated benefit is realized through a reduction of income taxes payable. The tax benefit associated with the exercise of stock options included in NOL’s that will be credited to additional paid-in capital when the NOL’s are used to reduce taxes currently payable is approximately $950,000. As of September 30, 2012, there were no changes in the valuation allowance as there were no events that occurred which would indicate utilization of net operating loss deductions would be further limited.

 

8. Stockholders’ Equity

 

The Company is authorized to issue 110,000,000 shares of common stock, $.001 par value per share. As of September 30, 2012, there were 63,651,857 shares of common stock outstanding. There were no shares of common stock issued as a result of stock option exercises for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Shares of common stock issued as a result of stock option exercises for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 was 425,000 and 240,000, respectively. See Note 9 for additional information regarding stock option plans.

 

9. Stock Options and Award Programs

 

The Company’s stock incentive plan is administered by the Compensation Committee and authorizes the grant or award of incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, restricted stock awards, stock appreciation rights, dividend equivalent rights, performance unit awards and phantom shares. The Company issues new shares of common stock upon the exercise of stock options. Any shares associated with options forfeited during the reporting period were added back to the number of shares that underlie stock options to be granted under the stock incentive plan.

 

A summary of the stock option and restricted stock award activity under our plans during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 is set forth below:

 

       Weighted 
       Average Grant 
   # of   Date Fair Value 
NON-VESTED OPTIONS  Shares   per Share 
Non-vested balances, January 1, 2012   840,000   $0.70 
Granted   400,000   $0.43 
Non-vested balances, September 30, 2012   1,240,000   $0.61 

 

       Weighted 
       Average 
   # of   Exercise Price 
OUTSTANDING AND EXERCISABLE  Shares   per Share 
Outstanding balances, January 1, 2012   3,362,000   $0.64 
Issued   400,000   $0.69 
Canceled   (25,000)  $0.54 
Exercised   (425,000)  $0.07 
Outstanding balances, September 30, 2012   3,312,000   $0.72 
           
Outstanding and exercisable balances, September 30, 2012   2,072,000   $0.59 

 

The aggregate remaining contractual lives in years for all options outstanding and the portion of such outstanding options that are exercisable on September 30, 2012 were 2.89 and 1.94, respectively. In comparison, the aggregate remaining contractual lives in years for the options that were outstanding and exercisable on September 30, 2011, were 3.32 and 2.56, respectively.

10
 

 

Aggregate intrinsic value represents total pretax intrinsic value (the difference between WidePoint’s closing stock price on September 30, 2012, and the exercise price, multiplied by the number of in-the-money options) that would have been received by the option holders had all option holders exercised their options on September 30, 2012. The intrinsic value will change based on the fair market value of WidePoint’s stock. The total intrinsic values of all options that were outstanding and exercisable as of September 30, 2012, were $45,750, respectively.

 

Share based compensation represents both stock options based expense and stock grant expense. The following table sets forth share-based compensation expense of for the periods then ended:

 

   THREE MONTHS ENDED   NINE MONTHS ENDED 
   SEPTEMBER 30,   SEPTEMBER 30, 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
   (Unaudited)   (Unaudited) 
General and administrative expense  $55,593   $69,920   $165,873   $109,857 
Share-based compensation before taxes  $55,593   $69,920   $165,873   $109,857 
Tot net share-based compensation expense  $55,593   $69,920   $165,873   $109,857 
Net share-based compensation expenses per basic and                    
diluted common share   nil    nil    nil    nil 

 

Included in share-based compensation in the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2011, respectively, was the benefit realized as a result of forfeitures of granted unvested stock options which were cancelled during that period. The resulting benefit occurred as the value attributed to the forfeited shares were greater than the sum of the stock options based compensation recognized during the respective periods. There were no such forfeitures in the nine month period September 30, 2012, that would have had a similar benefit.

 

At September 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $374,540 of total unamortized compensation expense, net of estimated forfeitures, related to stock option plans that will be recognized over the weighted average remaining period of 2.83 years.

11. Segment reporting

 

Segments are defined by authoritative guidance as components of a company in which separate financial information is available and is evaluated by the chief operating decision maker, or a decision making group, in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.  Management evaluates segment performance primarily based on revenue and segment operating income.

 

The Company operates as three segments: Telecommunications Management, CyberSecurity Solutions, and IT Consulting Services and Products.

 

Segment operating income consists of the revenues generated by a segment, less the direct costs of revenue and selling, general and administrative costs that are incurred directly by the segment.  Unallocated corporate costs include shared costs related to business administrative functions that are performed in a centralized manner that are not attributable to a particular segment.  These administrative function costs include costs for corporate office support, all office facility costs, costs relating to accounting and finance, human resources, legal, marketing, information technology and company-wide business development functions, as well as costs related to overall corporate management.

 

Management does not analyze assets for decision making purposes as it relates to the segments below. Accordingly, information is not available for long-lived assets or total assets. The following tables set forth selected segment and consolidated operating results and other operating data for the periods indicated.

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

 

“Forward-Looking” Information

 

The following discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations of the Company should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto which appear elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as well as the financial statements and the notes contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Business Overview

 

We have grown through the acquisition of highly specialized regional IT consulting companies. We provide our customized advanced technology-based products and solutions through three business segments operated principally through eight wholly-owned operational entities. Our customized advanced technology-based solutions enable organizations to deploy fully compliant solutions in accordance with government requirements and the demands of the commercial marketplace.

 

Our expertise lies in the following three business segments: Telecommunications Management, Cybersecurity Managed Solutions, and Consulting Services and Products. These segments offer unique solutions and proprietary IP-based wireline and wireless full life cycle management service solutions and; cybersecurity solutions with an expertise in identity management assurance and data protection services utilizing certificate-based security solutions delivered via WidePoint’s trusted cloud mobility managed services environment; and are supported by other associated IT consulting services and products in which the Company provides specific subject matter expertise in including but not limited to IT Architecture and Planning, Software Implementation Services, IT Outsourcing, and Identity Assurance and Forensic Informatics. WidePoint has eight operational entities, which specialize in providing the following products and services:

 

§Telecommunications Management - iSYS LLC (“iSYS”) and WidePoint Solutions Corp. (“WSC”) specialize in telecommunications life cycle management solutions, characterized by comprehensive wireless environment managed services contracts to a number of large US federal agencies and to commercial market enterprise which include a number of multi-national corporations. iSYS also specializes in forensic informatics, and Identity Assurance development services to both the public and private sectors.

 

14
 

 

§Cybersecurity Managed Solutions – Operational Research Consultants, Inc. (“ORC”) specializes in cyber security solutions with a focus on IT integration and secure authentication processes and software, and providing services to the federal government.  ORC has been at the forefront of implementing PKI technologies. PKI technology uses a class of algorithms in which a user can receive two electronic keys, consisting of a public key and a private key, to encrypt any information and/or communication being transmitted to or from the user within a computer network and between different computer networks. We believe PKI technology has emerged as the technology of choice to enable security services within and between different computer systems utilized by various agencies and departments of the federal government. Advanced Response Concepts Corporation (“ARCC”). specializes in providing identity assurance and priority resource management solutions, crime scene management and information protection, and other activities related thereto; and the development, maintenance, enhancement and provision of software, services, products and operations for identity management and information protection, which are offered primarily to state and local government agency markets. Protexx Technology Corporation (“Protexx”), which is a development stage company, specializes in identity assurance, and encrypted mobile and wireless data-in motion protection products and services.

 

§Consulting Services and Products – Our various subsidiaries provide IT consulting services and products to both commercial and federal government customers. Our commercial consulting services are predominantly offered by our Widepoint IL subsidiary in the Midwestern regional area and can cross-sell various services of our other operating subsidiaries. Our federal government consulting and product services are offered by all of our operating subsidiaries. These services include a variety of IT related services and products.

 

For additional information related to our business operations and segments see Note 11 to our condensed consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the description of our business set forth in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC on March 30, 2012. 

 

Revenue Concentrations and Considerations

 

We remain focused on continued retention and expansion of services to our existing customer base and attracting new customers in the government and commercial sectors. The majority of our revenues for 2011 were derived from contracts and projects with U.S. federal government agencies and U.S. federal government contractors. Historically, we have derived, and may continue to derive in the future, a significant percentage of our total revenues from a relatively small number of clients. At the end of fiscal 2011, we increased our reach in the commercial sector with the acquisition of the assets of Avalon Global Solutions ("AGS").

 

Due to the acquisition of the assets of AGS, our 2012 consolidated revenue and receivable base is better diversified between government and commercial clients. We intend to continue to cross-sell additional services to AGS's existing customer base and leverage our existing customer relationships to reach new customers worldwide. We are continuing to actively search out new synergistic acquisitions that we believe may further enhance our present base of business and service offerings.

 

Sources of Significant Operational and Administrative Expense

 

A significant source of operational costs consists of salaries and benefits paid to our technical, marketing and administrative personnel as well as payments to technical subcontractor labor and vendor-related costs in connection with our Communications Management segment.  Expansion of our internal growth initiatives and merger and acquisition opportunities will increase our operational costs and may require additional investments in technology infrastructure and personnel.  Our profitability also depends upon both the volume of services performed and the Company’s ability to manage costs.   To date, the Company has attempted to maximize its operating margins through efficiencies achieved by the use of its proprietary methodologies, and by offsetting increases in consultant salaries with increases in consultant fees received from its clients.  The uncertainties relating to the ability to achieve and maintain profitability, obtain additional funding to partially fund the Company’s growth strategy, and provide the necessary investment to continue to upgrade its management reporting systems to meet the continuing demands of the present regulatory changes affect the comparability of the information reflected in the financial information presented above.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 as Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2011

 

Revenues. Revenues for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 increased approximately 42% to approximately $15.2 million, an increase of $4.5 million as compared to approximately $10.7 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. This increase was a result of revenue growth in all of our segments.

 

Our segment revenue quarterly comparison is set forth below:

 

§Our Telecommunications Management segment realized revenues of approximately $7.1 million, an increase of approximately $0.9 million (or 15%) for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to approximately $6.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The increase reflects new commercial sector sales of software solutions and the addition of revenues from the AGS transaction, partially offset by lower amounts of revenue generated from billable reselling of minutes to our federal customers as we shift away from lower margin services.

 

§Our Cyber Security Managed Solutions segment realized revenues of approximately $2.3 million, an increase of $0.7 million (or 48%) for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to approximately $1.6 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. This increase reflects credentialing managed service sales to commercial customers that are being driven by mandates requiring credentials to be utilized for access to certain federal government sites and continued expansion in support of the Transportation Workers Identification Credentialing (TWIC) program.

 

§Our IT Consulting Services and Products segment realized revenues of $5.8 million, an increase of $2.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $2.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. The increase was materially due to growth in commercial consulting and government product resale of hardware, software, mobile device and accessory products and IT consulting services.

 

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales for the three month period ended September 30, 2012, was approximately $11.6 million (or 77% of revenues), as compared to approximately $8.1 million (or 76% of revenues) for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. This nominal increase was caused by a slightly lower mix of sales of higher margin services in our CyberSecurity Managed Solutions segment as compared to our other segments.

 

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $3.6 million (or 23% of revenues), as compared to approximately $2.6 million (or 24% of revenues) for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.   We believe as revenues expand in the future there will be periods of variability in margin growth associated with changes in our growth strategies which may affect our segment revenue mix.

 

Sales and Marketing. Sales and marketing expense for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $705,000 (or 5% of revenues), as compared to approximately $363,000 (or 3% of revenues) for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.  Sales and marketing program expense includes direct marketing costs and commission payments to commercial business channel partners, which accounted for a significant portion of the increase in our sales and marketing costs.

 

General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 were approximately $2.3 million (or 15% of revenues), as compared to approximately $1.9 million (or 18% of revenues) for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.   The acquisition of the assets of AGS accounted for a significant portion of the increase in our general and administrative costs . The remaining portion of the increase is attributable to project-based internal efforts to optimize future quarters’ operational capacity.

Depreciation.  Depreciation expense for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $75,000, as compared to approximately $49,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.  The increase in depreciation expense was due to increased pool of depreciable assets to support our technology solutions infrastructure.  We anticipate additional infrastructure investments in our Telecommunications Management and Cybersecurity Managed Solutions segments to purchase of equipment in support of new product solutions that will impact future depreciation expenses.

 

Interest Income. Interest income for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $1,000, as compared to approximately $3,000, for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.  This decrease was due to lower amounts of invested cash and cash equivalents in interest bearing accounts throughout the quarter.  We do not anticipate any material changes in trends in our interest income for the near-term as a result of continuing low short-term interest rates presently payable by financial institutions.

 

Interest Expense. Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $85,000 (or 1% of revenues), an increase of approximately $70,000 as compared to approximately $15,000 (or less than 1% of revenues) of interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in interest expense was primarily attributable to higher expenses associated with the indebtedness incurred in connection with the acquisition of AGS.

 

Income Taxes.  Income tax provision for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $142,000, as compared to approximately $39,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. The income tax benefit recognized in the three month period ended September 30, 2012 reflects changes in the timing and amount of the use of net operating loss carryforwards to reduce future taxable income.

 

Net Income. As a result of the factors above, the net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $244,000 as compared to net income of approximately $218,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2011.

 

Nine months Ended September 30, 2012 as Compared to Nine months Ended September 30, 2011 

 

Revenues. Revenues for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 increased to approximately $41.4 million, an increase of approximately $10.2 million (or 33%) as compared to approximately $31.2 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. This increase reflects revenue growth in all of our segments and the addition of revenues from the AGS transaction.

 

Our segment revenue quarterly comparison is set forth below:

 

§Our Telecommunications Management segment realized revenues of approximately $21.9 million, an increase of approximately $3.9 million (or 22%) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to approximately $18.0 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. The increase reflects new commercial sector sales of software solutions and the addition of revenues from the AGS transaction, partially offset by our continued shift away from lower margin revenue generated from billable reselling of minutes to our federal customers. We continue to believe that growth strategies to expand our reach in the commercial and state government sectors should provide us with the revenue mix and customer diversification sought to meet our overall growth strategies and manage variability in revenue from federal government contracts.

 

§Our Cyber Security Managed Solutions segment realized revenues of approximately $5.6 million, an increase of $0.5 million (or 9%) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to approximately $5.1 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. This increase materially reflects continuing credentialing managed service sales in connection with the Transportation Workers Identification Credentialing (TWIC) program. We believe our credentialing program will expand from continued support and rollout of additional work with various states in support of our first responders initiatives, and other credentialing initiatives progress.

 

17
 

 

§Our IT Consulting Services and Products segment realized revenues of approximately $13.8 million, an increase of $5.7 million (or 71%) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $8.1 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. The increase was materially due to growth in commercial consulting and government product resale of hardware, software, mobile device and accessory products and IT consulting services. Future performance and the continuity of growth may prove erratic from period to period as sales are materially driven by federal government contracts.

 

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $31.6 million (or 76% of revenues), as compared to approximately $24.1 million (or 77% of revenues) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. This nominal increase was caused by a slightly lower mix of sales of higher margin services. We anticipate that our cost of sales in the long term will trend lower as we recognize a greater portion of revenue in the future from higher margin services.

 

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $9.7 million (or 24% of revenues), as compared to approximately $7.1 million (or 23% of revenues) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  We believe as revenues expand in the future there will be periods of variability in margin growth associated with changes in our growth strategies which may affect our segment revenue mix.

 

Sales and Marketing. Sales and marketing expense for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $2.2 million (or 5% of revenues), as compared to approximately $1.2 million (or 4% of revenues) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  Sales and marketing program expense includes direct marketing costs and commission payments to commercial business channel partners, which accounted for a significant portion of the increase.

 

General and Administrative. General and administrative expenses for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 were approximately $7.2 million (or 17% of revenues), as compared to approximately $5.6 million (or 18% of revenues) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  The acquisition of the assets of AGS accounted for a significant portion of the increase in our general and administrative costs. The remaining portion of the increase is attributable to project-based internal efforts to optimize future quarters’ operational capacity .

 

Depreciation.  Depreciation expense for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $214,000, as compared to approximately $155,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  The increase in depreciation expense was due to increased pool of depreciable assets to support our technology solutions infrastructure.  We anticipate additional infrastructure investments in our Telecommunications Management and Cybersecurity Managed Solutions segments to purchase of equipment in support of new revenue streams that will impact future depreciation expenses.

 

Interest Income. Interest income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $4,200, as compared to approximately $9,000, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  This decrease was due to lower amounts of invested cash and cash equivalents in interest bearing accounts.  We do not anticipate any material changes in trends in our interest income for the near-term as a result of continuing low short-term interest rates presently payable by financial institutions.

 

Interest Expense. Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $265,000 (or 1% of revenues), an increase of approximately $210,000 as compared to approximately $55,000 (or less than 1% of revenues) of interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to indebtedness incurred in connection with the acquisition of AGS.

 

Income Taxes.  Income tax benefit for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $130,000, as compared to $12,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011. The income tax benefit recognized in the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 reflects changes in the timing and amount of the use of net operating loss carryforwards in fiscal 2012 to reduce future taxable income.

 

Net (Loss) Income. As a result of the factors above, the net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $1,000 as compared to a net income of approximately $115,000 for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company has, since inception, financed its operations and capital expenditures through the sale of preferred and common stock, seller notes in connection with acquisitions, convertible notes, convertible exchangeable debentures, senior secured loans and the proceeds from the exercise of the warrants related to a convertible exchangeable debenture. The Company’s immediate sources of liquidity include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, unbilled receivables and access to a working capital credit facility with Cardinal Bank for up to $8.0 million. The Company’s operating liabilities consist of vendor and payroll obligations.

 

The Company’s operations require working capital to fund planned growth strategies. At September 30, 2012, the Company’s net working capital was approximately $3.6 million as compared to approximately $2.4 at December 31, 2011. At September 30, 2012, there were no material commitments for additional acquisitions or capital expenditures, but that could change with the addition of material contract awards in any of our segments. At September 30, 2012, there were no outstanding borrowings against the Company’s working capital credit facility.

 

Cash provided by operating activities provides an indication of our ability to generate sufficient cash flow from our recurring business activities. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, net cash provided by operations was approximately $1.2 million.

 

Cash used in investing activities provides an indication of our long term infrastructure investments. We make recurring purchases of property and equipment to replace or enhance our hardware and software applications that support customer operations. We also make investments in software development related to our proprietary telecommunications expense management tools and applications and PKI software certificate credentialing managed services. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash used in investing activities was approximately $224,000 as compared to approximately $667,000 in the same period last year. The decrease in investing activity in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 reflects the timing of periodic PKI credentialing software development costs and purchasing decisions to enter into a capital lease arrangements as opposed to financing the current year technology requirements from available cash balances.

 

Cash used in financing activities provides an indication of our equity and debt capital raises and repayment of those obligations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash used in financing activities was approximately $630,000 as compared to approximately $353,000 in the same period last year. We utilized our working capital credit facility during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to facilitate short term funding post acquisition at WidePoint Solutions Corp. (which acquired the assets of AGS) while AGS customer contracts were being assigned and to fund infrastructure investments. We repaid our line of credit advances in full with available cash balances and made our scheduled payments for current maturities of term debt during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.

 

We believe our current cash position and our working capital credit facility are sufficient to meet our minimum requirements for our current business operations. Our business environment is characterized by rapid technological change with periods of high growth and contraction, and is influenced by material events such as mergers and acquisitions that can substantially change our performance and outlook. Constant growth and technological change in our market makes it difficult to predict future liquidity requirements with certainty.

 

We believe future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the rate of revenue growth, if any, the timing and extent of spending for new product and service development, strategic acquisition funding and availability of suitable acquisition targets, technological changes in our proprietary software solutions and market acceptance of the Company’s branded products and service solutions.

19
 

 

Over the long term, the Company must successfully execute its growth plans to increase profitable revenue and income streams that should generate positive cash flows to sustain adequate liquidity without impairing growth initiatives or requiring the infusion of additional funds from external sources to meet minimum operating requirements, including debt service. There can be no assurance that additional financing, if required, will be available on acceptable terms, if at all, for future acquisitions and/or growth initiatives.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company has no existing off-balance sheet arrangements as defined under SEC regulations.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance that material information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that the information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We performed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2012. Based on the existence of the material weaknesses discussed below in “Material Weakness in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting,” our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at the reasonable assurance level as of September 30, 2012.

 

We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all instances of fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Further, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all our control deficiencies and instances of fraud, if any. The design of disclosure controls and procedures also is based partly on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

 

Material Weakness in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company's annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

 

Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011.  In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework.  Based on this assessment, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2011 due to the existence of the following material weaknesses:

 

§Inadequate segregation of duties within an account or process. Management has determined that it continued to not have appropriate segregation of duties within our internal controls that would ensure the consistent application of procedures in our financial reporting process by existing personnel. This control deficiency could result in a misstatement of substantially all of our financial statement accounts and disclosures that would result in a material misstatement to the annual or interim financial statements.

 

§Inadequate policies and procedures. Management has determined that its existing policies and procedures continued to be limited and/or inadequate in scope to provide staff with guidance or framework for accounting and disclosing financial transactions. This deficiency could result in unintended, misleading entries being made in the financial system and precluding sufficient disclosure of complex transactions.

 

§Lack of sufficient subject matter expertise. Management has determined that it lacks certain subject matter expertise relating to accounting for complex transactions and the disclosure of complex transactions related to accounting for income taxes. Our financial staff currently lacks sufficient training or experience in accounting for complex transactions and the required disclosure therein.

 

21
 

 

Remediation Plan for Material Weaknesses

 

The material weaknesses described above in "Material Weaknesses in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting" comprise control deficiencies that we discovered during the financial closing process for the December 31, 2011 fiscal period.

 

Management has formulated and continued to implement a remediation plan that will continue through the end of fiscal 2012, which includes: (i) developing a centralized set of policies and procedures to address inadequacies described above; (ii) automating certain manual transactions, centralizing operational accounting and preparation of financial reporting schedules; (iii) minimizing manual transactional reporting; (iv) establishing training and education content for select members of our operational and financial staff.

 

We believe that these measures, if effectively implemented and maintained, will remediate the material weaknesses discussed above.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

We are currently undertaking the measures discussed above to remediate the material weaknesses discussed under “Material Weaknesses in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting” above.  Those measures, described under “Remediation Plan for Material Weaknesses,” will continue to be implemented during fiscal year 2012, and are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.
