PCTEL, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2018 (Unaudited)
(in thousands except share data and as otherwise noted)

 

 

1. Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  For further information, refer to the audited consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 Form 10-K”).

Nature of Operations

PCTEL, Inc. (“PCTEL”, the “Company”, “we”, “ours”, and “us”) delivers Performance Critical TELecom technology solutions to the wireless industry.  PCTEL is a leading global supplier of wireless network antenna and testing solutions. PCTEL’s Connected Solutions segment designs and manufactures precision antennas. PCTEL antennas are deployed in small cells, enterprise Wi-Fi access points, fleet management and transit systems, and in network equipment and devices for the Industrial Internet of Things (“IIoT”). PCTEL’s RF Solutions segment provides test tools that improve the performance of wireless networks globally. Mobile operators, neutral hosts, and equipment manufacturers rely on PCTEL to analyze, design, and optimize next generation wireless networks.

Segment Reporting

PCTEL operates in two segments for reporting purposes, Connected Solutions and RF Solutions.  The Company’s chief operating decision maker uses operating profits and identified assets for the Connected Solutions and RF Solutions segments for resource allocations.  Each segment has its own segment manager as well as its own engineering, business development, sales and marketing, and operational general and administrative functions.  All of the Company’s accounting and finance, human resources, IT and legal functions are provided on a centralized basis through the corporate function. The Company manages its balance sheet and cash flows centrally at the corporate level, with the exception of trade accounts receivable and inventory which is managed at the segment level. Each of the segment managers reports to and maintains regular contact with the chief operating decision maker to discuss operating activities, financial results, forecasts, or plans for the segment.

Connected Solutions Segment

PCTEL Connected Solutions designs and manufactures precision antennas. PCTEL antennas are deployed primarily in small cells, enterprise Wi-Fi access points, fleet management and transit systems, and in equipment and devices for the IIoT. Revenue growth in these markets is driven by the increased use of wireless communications and increased complexity occurring in these markets. PCTEL antennas are primarily sold to original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) providers where they are designed into the customer’s solution.

Competition in the antenna markets addressed by the Connected Solutions segment is fragmented. Competitors include Airgain, Amphenol, Laird, Pulse, and Taoglas. The Company seeks out product applications that command a premium for product performance and customer service, and it avoids commodity markets.

PCTEL maintains expertise in several technology areas in order to be competitive in the antenna market.  These include radio frequency engineering, mobile antenna design and manufacturing, mechanical engineering, product quality and testing, and wireless network engineering.

RF Solutions Segment

 

PCTEL RF Solutions provides test tools that improve the performance of wireless networks globally, with a focus on LTE, public safety, and emerging 5G technologies. Network operators, neutral hosts, and equipment manufacturers rely on PCTEL’s scanning receivers and testing solutions to analyze, design, and optimize their networks. Revenue growth is driven by the implementation and roll out of new wireless technology standards (i.e. 3G to 4G, 4G to 5G).  PCTEL test equipment is sold directly to wireless carriers or to OEMs who integrate the Company’s products into their solutions which are then sold to wireless carriers.

8


Competitors for PCTEL’s test tool products include OEMs such as Anritsu, Berkley Varitronics, Digital Receiver Technology, and Rohde and Schwarz.

PCTEL maintains expertise in several technology areas in order to be competitive in the test tool market. These include radio frequency engineering, digital signal process (“DSP”) engineering, manufacturing, mechanical engineering, product quality and testing, and wireless network engineering.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company approved a plan to sell its Network Engineering Service business (“Engineering Services”) and shift its focus toward research and development driven radio frequency (“RF”) products. On July 31, 2017, the Company sold substantially all of the assets of the Company’s Engineering Services business to Gabe’s Construction Co., Inc. (“Gabe’s”) for a purchase price of $1.45 million. The Engineering Services business provided design, testing, commissioning, optimization, and consulting services for cellular, Wi-Fi and public safety networks and was a reporting unit within the RF Solutions segment. Due to the significance of its historical results and because this disposition represented a strategic shift by the Company to focus on products, the disposition of Engineering Services also qualified as a discontinued operation for reporting purposes.  As such, the Company reported the results of its Engineering Services business as discontinued operations beginning with the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The Company restated the results of Engineering Services as discontinued operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.  See Note 5 for more information on discontinued operations.

Basis of Consolidation

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company, which include the condensed consolidated balance sheet and the condensed consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity as of March 31, 2018 and the condensed consolidated statements of operations, statements of comprehensive (loss) income, and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, are unaudited and reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the interim period financial statements.  The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017 is derived from the audited financial statements as of December 31, 2017.  Certain amounts in the prior year have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.  

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted.  The significant accounting policies followed by the Company are set forth within the 2017.  There were no changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2018.  See Note 13 related to Revenue from Contracts with Customers for additional disclosures related to revenue policies.  In addition, the Company reaffirms the use of estimates in the preparation of the financial statements as set forth in the 2017 Form 10-K.  These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the 2017 Form 10-K.  The results of operations for the period ended March 31, 2018 may not be indicative of the results for the period ending December 31, 2018.

Foreign Operations

The Company is exposed to foreign currency fluctuations due to its foreign operations and because products are sold internationally.  The functional currency for the Company’s foreign operations is predominantly the applicable local currency.  Accounts of foreign operations are translated into U.S. dollars using the exchange rate in effect at the applicable balance sheet date for assets and liabilities and average monthly rates prevailing during the period for revenue and expense accounts.  Adjustments resulting from translation are included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a separate component of shareholders’ equity.  Gains and losses resulting from other transactions originally in foreign currencies and then translated into U.S. dollars are included in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.  Net foreign exchange losses resulting from foreign currency transactions included in other income, net was $69 and $12 for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13 ("ASU 2016-13") regarding ASC Topic 326, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses," which modifies the measurement of expected credit losses of certain financial instruments. The amendments will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2020.  The Company is currently evaluating this guidance and the impact it will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (“Topic 842”), which amends existing guidance to require lessees to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by long-term leases and to disclose additional quantitative and qualitative information about leasing arrangements. Topic 842 also provides clarifications surrounding the

9


presentation of the effects of leases in the income statement and statement of cash flows. This guidance will be effective for the Company on January 1, 2019.  The Company is currently evaluating this guidance and the impact it will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of certain cash receipts and cash payments (“Topic 230”).  Topic 230 addresses the following eight specific cash flow issues: Debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs; settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments or other debt instruments with coupon interest rates that are insignificant in relation to the effective interest rate of the borrowing; contingent consideration payments made after a business combination; proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims; proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies (including bank-owned life insurance policies); distributions received from equity method investees; beneficial interests in securitization transactions; and separately identifiable cash flows and application of the predominance principle. The Company adopted Topic 230 on January 1, 2018.  Adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, Income Taxes (“Topic 740”): Intra-Entity Transfer of Assets Other than Inventory.  Topic 740 requires an entity to recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs.  The Company adopted Topic 740 on January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective approach, and as a result recorded a deferred tax asset with a corresponding adjustment to retained earnings of $0.1 million associated with an inter-entity transfer of goodwill in 2009.  The goodwill was transferred to the U.S. entity from a Canadian entity that was dissolved in 2009.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“Topic 606”) which introduces a new revenue recognition model in which an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Topic 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than were required under prior U.S. GAAP. Topic 606 also requires disclosures sufficient to enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including qualitative and quantitative disclosures about contracts with customers, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract.  The FASB has also issued the following standards which clarify Topic 606 and have the same effective date as the original standard: ASU 2016-20, Technical Corrections and Improvements to Topic 606, ASU No. 2016-12, Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, ASU 2016-10, Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing and ASU 2016-08, Principal versus Agent Considerations.  The Company adopted Topic 606 on January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective approach.  The majority of the Company’s revenue is recognized on a “point-in-time” basis and a nominal amount of our revenue is recognized “over time” under the new standard, which is consistent with our revenue recognition policy under the previous guidance.  There were no changes to retained earnings from the adoption of Topic 606.  The Company made changes to incorporate the impact of the new standard into our policies, processes, and controls.  See Note 13 for information on Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

 

 

2. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company follows accounting guidance for fair value measurements and disclosures, which establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires the Company to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.  Fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, a three-tier fair value hierarchy has been established, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

Level 1: inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of assets or liabilities.

Level 3: unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Cash equivalents are measured at fair value and investments are recognized at amortized cost in the Company’s financial statements.  Accounts receivable and other investments are financial assets with carrying values that approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these assets.  Accounts payable is a financial liability with a carrying value that approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of these liabilities.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

At March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, cash and cash equivalents included bank balances and investments with original maturities less than 90 days.  At March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company’s cash equivalents were invested in highly liquid AAA rated money market funds that are required to comply with Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940.  Such funds utilize the amortized cost method of accounting, seek to maintain a constant $1.00 per share price, and are redeemable upon demand.  The Company restricts its investments in AAA money market funds to those invested 100% in either short-term U.S. government agency securities or bank repurchase agreements collateralized by these same securities.  The fair values of these money market funds are established through quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1 inputs).  The Company’s cash in U.S. banks is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to the insurable limit of $250.

At March 31, 2018, the Company had $3.1 million in cash and $9.3 million in cash equivalents, and at December 31, 2017, the Company had $3.8 million in cash and $1.8 million in cash equivalents.  At March 31, 2018, the Company had in cash equivalents $5.6 million in AA rated or higher corporate bonds, $1.9 million in certificates of deposit, $1.7 million in U.S. government agency bonds, and $0.1 million in money market funds.  At December 31, 2017, the Company had in cash equivalents, $1.3 million in AA rated or higher corporate bonds, $0.3 million in U.S. government agency bonds, and $0.2 million in money market funds.

Investments

At March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company’s short-term investments consisted of pre-refunded municipal bonds, U.S. government agency bonds, AA or higher rated corporate bonds, and certificates of deposit, all classified as held-to-maturity.  At March 31, 2018, the Company had invested $9.5 million in AA rated or higher corporate bonds, $8.5 million in certificates of deposit, and $4.3 million in U.S. government agency bonds.  The income and principal from the pre-refunded municipal bonds are secured by an irrevocable trust of U.S. Treasury securities.  The bonds have original maturities greater than 90 days and mature in less than one year.  The Company’s bond investments are recorded at the purchase price and carried at amortized cost.  The net unrealized losses were $36 and $34 at March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.  Approximately 8% of the Company’s municipal bond investments were protected by bond default insurance at December 31, 2017.  All of the municipal bonds matured during the quarter ended  March 31, 2018.

At December 31, 2017, the Company had invested $18.5 million in AA rated or higher corporate bond funds, $7.4 million in certificates of deposit, $4.5 million in U.S. government agency bonds, and $2.1 million in pre-refunded municipal bonds and taxable bond funds.

The Company categorizes its financial instruments within a fair value hierarchy according to accounting guidance for fair value.  The fair value hierarchy is described under the Fair Value of Financial Instruments in Note 2.  For the Level 2 investments, the Company uses quoted prices of similar assets in active markets.

5. Discontinued Operations

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company approved a plan to sell its Network Engineering Services business (“Engineering Services”) and shift its focus toward research and development driven radio frequency (“RF”) products.  On July 31, 2017, the Company sold its Network Engineering Services business to Gabe’s Construction Co., Inc. (“Gabe’s”).  The Company filed a Form 8-K related to the disposition on August 4, 2017.  

The disposition met the requirements for classification as held for sale during the quarter ended June 30, 2017 because the disposition met all the criteria outlined in the accounting guidance.  Due to the significance of the results during the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015, and 2014, and because this disposition represented a strategic shift by the Company to focus on products, the disposition of Engineering Services also qualified as a discontinued operation for reporting purposes.  As such, the Company reported the results of its Engineering Services business as discontinued operations beginning with the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  The results for Engineering Services are reported as discontinued operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017.  There were no activities related to discontinued operations during the three months ended March 31, 2018 other than transition services for billing for one customer.   The Company expects to complete the transition for billing by June 30, 2018.  

12


The Company sold the fixed assets and backlog of the Network Engineering Services business to Gabe’s for $1.45 million.  At closing, the Company received $1.4 million, consisting of $1.3 million for the sale of the business and $0.1 million related to future services.  The Company recorded a pre-tax book gain of $0.5 million in discontinued operations during the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  The net pre-tax book gain included proceeds from the sale of assets minus the book value of the assets disposed as well as severance and related payroll benefits for terminated employees.  The book value of the assets was $0.6 million at the date of closing.   On August 1, 2017, the Company terminated 25 employees, and Gabe’s hired 11 of these employees.  The severance and related benefits for the terminated employees who were not subsequently hired by Gabe’s was $0.2 million.  The income tax gain was $0.3 million, which included the tax value of the fixed assets and the remaining tax value for intangible assets no longer being used by the Company as of the sale to Gabe’s.  The Company retained working capital of approximately $0.5 million, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities.  There was no impairment loss recorded on the disposal of the long-lived assets because the fair value of the assets less cost to sell was higher than the carrying value of the assets.

6. Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Goodwill

There were no changes to goodwill during the three months ended March 31, 2018.  The $3.3 million of goodwill on the balance sheet relates to the RF Solutions segment.  There were no triggering events for the RF Solutions segment during the quarter ended March 31, 2018.  The Company will continue to monitor goodwill for impairment going forward.                                              

13


Intangible Assets

The Company amortizes intangible assets with finite lives on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives, which range from one to six years.  Amortization expense was approximately $0.3  million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  Amortization for technology assets is included in cost of revenues and amortization for all other intangible assets is included in operating expenses.  For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, $0.1 million of the intangible asset amortization was included in operating expenses and $0.2 million of the amortization expense was included in cost of revenues.
