Note 1 — Organization and Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation

 

Organization and Nature of Business

 

SMG Indium Resources Ltd. (the “Company”) is a corporation established pursuant to the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008. From its inception through December 31, 2014, the Company operated in a single-segment business, the principal purpose of which was to stockpile indium, a specialty metal that is being increasingly used as a raw material in a wide variety of consumer electronics manufacturing applications. The primary commercial application of indium is in coatings for the flat panel display industry and in the liquid crystal display (“LCD”) industry on electronic devices such as television sets, computer monitors, cell phones and digital cameras. Indium is increasingly being used as a raw material in light emitting diodes (“LED”) and in the solar energy industry. Its main use in solar energy applications is for high-efficiency photovoltaic cells in the form of thin-film photovoltaic. Other uses of indium are in electrical components, alloys and solders. From time to time, the Company lent, leased and sold indium when management believed it was advantageous.

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company sold all of the indium held in its stockpile. As a result, the Company is no longer in the business of purchasing and selling indium. The Company’s board of directors has begun evaluating strategic options including the acquisition of a new line of business or the sale or full liquidation of the Company. In connection therewith, in May 2015, the board entered into an agreement with an adviser to assist in identifying potential strategic options. Such agreement was terminated on July 31, 2015. The Company recorded fees to the advisor of approximately $17 thousand and $33 thousand during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. There can be no assurance that the Company will enter into any such transaction, and if so, on terms favorable to the Company.

 

In December 2014, the Company purchased 6,678,358 shares of its common stock, representing 78% of its outstanding shares, in a Tender Offer (the “Offer”) for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $16.1 million, or $2.41 per share. Shares not purchased in the Offer because of proration or conditional tenders were returned to the tendering stockholders. Following the Offer, 1,883,639 shares of common stock were outstanding. During the third quarter of 2015, the Company’s board of directors approved a program to repurchase up to $650 thousand of the Company’s common stock. In connection therewith, the Company bought back 139,070 shares of its common stock in September 2015 for approximately $0.2 million, or $1.40 per share. At September 30, 2015, 1,744,569 shares of the Company’s common stock were outstanding.

 

At September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had approximately $4.1 million and $4.8 million, respectively, in cash and cash equivalents.

 

In May 2011, the Company entered into a Management Services Agreement, as amended and restated (the “MSA”), with a related party, Specialty Metals Group Advisors, LLC (“SMG Advisors” or the “Manager”). The MSA terminated on December 31, 2014. Pursuant to the MSA, the Company paid a Manager fee of approximately $0.2 million and $0.5 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively.

 

In March 2015, the Company’s chief executive officer and chief operating officer resigned and Ailon Grushkin, the Company’s chairman of the board of directors and president, was named chief executive officer. Concurrently, the Company entered into a Consulting Agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”) by and between the Company and Nano-Cap Advisors LLC (“Nano” or the “Consultant”), a related party. Mr. Grushkin is the only member of Nano. The Consultant provides services normally provided by a chief executive officer of a company as determined and directed by the Company and provides office facilities for the Company. For the services to be rendered by the Consultant to the Company pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, the Company agreed to pay the Consultant $90 thousand during the year ending December 31, 2015. The Company recorded fees to the consultant of $23 thousand and $68 thousand during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively. The Consulting Agreement continues until December 31, 2015 and shall thereafter renew for successive one-year terms unless otherwise terminated by either party in accordance with the terms of the Consulting Agreement.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, these interim unaudited condensed financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  These interim unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, as filed with the SEC. In the opinion of management, the interim unaudited condensed financial statements included herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. The condensed balance sheet at December 31, 2014 has been derived from the Company’s audited balance sheet as of December 31, 2014 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, as filed with the SEC. Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2015 or any interim period.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. The most significant estimates relate to share-based compensation and income tax, and, in 2014, also related to income and revenue recognition. Actual results could differ from those estimates under different assumptions and conditions.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with original maturities of 90 days or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents.

 

Inventory of the Metal Indium

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company exited the indium business and had no remaining indium inventory. Prior to that time, the stockpile of the physical metal indium was carried at the lower of cost or market with cost being determined on a specific-identification method (including costs of delivering the indium) and market determined as the net realizable value based on the spot prices of indium obtained from Metal Bulletin PLC, as posted on Bloomberg L.P., a real-time financial information services data platform.

 

Basic and Diluted Net (Loss) Income per Share

 

The Company presents both basic and diluted net (loss) income per share on the face of the statements of operations. Basic net (loss) income per share is computed by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income gives effect to all potentially dilutive shares of common stock outstanding during the period including stock options, warrants and unit purchase options, using the treasury-stock method. If anti-dilutive, the effect of potentially dilutive shares of common stock is ignored. In computing diluted net (loss) income per share, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock option or warrants. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, all potentially issuable shares of common stock have been excluded from the calculation because their effect would be antidilutive due to the Company’s net loss. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, potential shares of common stock that resulted from the assumed exercise of outstanding stock options, with exercise prices less than the average market price of the Company’s common stock for the period, were calculated using the treasury stock method. All other potentially issuable shares of common stock have been excluded from the calculation because their effect would be antidilutive.

 

Accounting for Direct Sales, Lending and Leasing Transactions

 

The stockpile of indium was used for “direct sales”, “lease” and/or “lending” transactions. Under a direct sale transaction, the Company recorded revenue when there was pervasive evidence that an arrangement existed, delivery had occurred, the price was fixed or determinable and collectibility was reasonably assured. Cost of sales was recorded for the indium carrying value based on specific-identification method. There were no uncollectible accounts and no right of return. Approximately 78% of the Company’s direct sales were sold outside the United States, primarily in Asia, in the first nine months of 2014.

 

Under indium lending transactions, the Company exchanged a specified tonnage and purity of indium for cash. Title and the risks and rewards of such indium ownership passed to the purchaser/counterparty in the lending transaction. The Company simultaneously entered into an agreement with such counterparty in which the Company unconditionally committed to purchase and the counterparty unconditionally committed to sell a specified tonnage and purity of indium that was delivered to the Company at a fixed price and at a fixed future date in exchange for cash (the “Unconditional Sale and Purchase Agreement” or “USPA”). The USPA also contained terms providing the counterparty with disincentives (“penalty fees”) for nonperformance of the return of indium to the Company as a means to assure its future supply of indium. The Company accounted for any USPA transaction on a combined basis (sale and purchase) and evaluated whether, and in what period, other income was recognized based on the specific terms of any arrangements. In the first quarter of 2014, the counterparty purchased the indium under an USPA at negotiated prices.

 

Indium lease transactions were generally for a period of less than one year. Under the lease, a specified amount of indium was leased to the customer for a period of time. At the end of the lease, the lessee was obligated to return the equivalent quantity and purity of the indium that was delivered to the lessee at the beginning of the lease. The monthly rental income was recorded as other income over the term of the lease. During 2014, the Company sold the leased indium to a lessee at a negotiated price.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – (continued)

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted under the asset-and-liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to the differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and the respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities 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. The portion of any deferred tax asset for which it is more likely than not that a tax benefit will not be realized must then be offset by recording a valuation allowance. A valuation allowance has been established against all of the deferred tax assets, as it is more likely than not that these assets will not be realized given the Company’s expected operating losses in 2015. The Company recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgement occurs. The Company recognizes potential interest and penalties related to income tax positions as a component of the provision for income taxes on the statements of operations.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, no income taxes were recorded due to the Company’s operating loss. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded $16 thousand and $76 thousand, respectively, for federal and state income taxes. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 was significantly lower than the statutory rate due to the utilization of its net operating loss carryforwards, which offset the Company’s taxable income, except for the Federal alternative minimum tax that is not offset by such operating loss carryforwards.

 

Share-Based Payment Arrangements

 

The Company measures the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments (share-based payments or “SBP”) based on the grant-date fair value of the award. That cost is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the SBP award—the requisite service period (vesting period). For SBP awards subject to conditions, compensation is not recognized until the performance condition is probable of occurrence. The grant-date fair value of share options is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model. Compensation expense for SBP awards granted to nonemployees is remeasured each period as the underlying options vest. The Company recorded non-cash charges for SBP of approximately $1 thousand for each of the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 and approximately $4 thousand for each of the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

 

The fair value of each option granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model with the weighted average assumptions in the following table:

 

   Nine Months Ended September 30,
   2015  2014
Expected dividend yield  0%  0%
Expected option term (years)  5  5
Expected volatility  13%  10%
Risk-free interest rate  1.32-1.71%  1.66-1.77%

 

The expected term of options granted represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. Through 2014, because of the Company’s limited trading history and trading volume, the expected volatility was calculated based on the five-year volatility of indium. Beginning in 2015, the expected volatility was based on the volatility in the trading of the Company’s common stock since the Company was no longer in the indium business. The assumed discount rate was the default risk-free five-year interest rate provided by Bloomberg L.P.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – (continued)

 

Common Stock Purchase Contracts

 

The Company classifies as equity any common stock purchase contracts that: (i) require physical settlement or net-share settlement or give the Company a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in its own shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement) and (ii) are indexed to the Company’s common stock. The Company classifies as assets or liabilities any common stock purchase contracts that: (i) require net-cash settlement (including a requirement to net-cash settle the contract if an event occurs and that event is outside the control of the Company), (ii) give the counterparty a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement), or (iii) are not indexed to the Company’s common stock. The Company assesses classification of its equity-classified contracts at each reporting date to determine whether a change in classification between assets and liabilities is required. The Company’s outstanding common stock purchase contracts were accounted for as equity through September 30, 2015.

 

Concentration of Market Risk

 

The Company maintains cash deposits with banks that at times exceed applicable Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limits. The Company reduces its exposure to credit risk by maintaining such deposits with high-quality financial institutions. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts. At September 30, 2015, the Company had cash on deposit of approximately $3.9 million in excess of federally insured limits of $250 thousand.

 

Fair Value

 

The Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible. The Company determines fair value based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability in the principal or most advantageous market. For cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued expenses and prepaid expenses and other current assets, the carrying amount approximated the fair value because of the immediate or short-term nature of those instruments.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The FASB recently issued ASU 2013-07, “Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) Liquidation Basis of Accounting”, which requires an entity to prepare its financial statements using the liquidation basis of accounting when liquidation is imminent, as defined in ASU 2013-07. ASU 2013-07’s objective is to eliminate diverse practices by providing guidance about when and how to apply the model. The guidance applies to all entities except for investment companies regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Since there is no imminent plan to liquidate the Company, this ASU is not applicable for the Company’s current period financial statements.

 

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. In August 2015, the FASB amended the effective date of this ASU to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and early adoption is only permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Company is evaluating strategic options and, subsequent to December 31, 2014, has no revenue stream. The Company will evaluate the effect that ASU 2014-09 has on its financial statements and related disclosures and select a transition method when and if the Company has future revenues.

 

Equity Compensation Plan

 

Under the Company’s 2008 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), the Company may grant incentive stock options, nonqualified stock options, restricted and unrestricted stock awards and other stock-based awards. Pursuant to the Plan, 845,000 shares of common stock are reserved for issuance under the Plan. Options are granted with exercise prices equal to or greater than the fair value of the common stock on the date of grant. The terms of the options are approved by the Company’s board of directors or one of its committees. Options granted to date have vested immediately and expire in five years. At September 30, 2015, there were 285,001 options available under the Plan for future grants.

Stock Options

 

Summary stock option information is as follows:

 

               Weighted 
   Aggregate   Aggregate   Exercise Price   Average 
   Number   Exercise Price   Range   Exercise Price 
Outstanding, December 31, 2014   544,999   $2,551,193   $1.78-7.50   $4.68 
Granted   15,000    28,450   $1.80-2.00   $1.90 
Exercise   -    -    -    -

Outstanding, September 30, 2015   559,999   $2,579,643   $1.78-7.50   $4.61 

 

The weighted average grant-date fair value was $0.28 and $0.26 for options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The weighted average remaining contractual life is 1.0 years for stock options outstanding at September 30, 2015. At September 30, 2015 and 2014, there was $0 and $9 thousand, respectively, in intrinsic value of outstanding options.

 

Warrants

 

As of September 30, 2015, the Company has outstanding warrants exercisable for 6,753,701 shares of the Company’s common stock, all at an exercise price of $5.75 per share. Such warrants expire on May 4, 2016.

 

The warrants contain a call feature that permits the Company to redeem the warrants at a price of $0.01 per warrant at any time after the warrants become exercisable, upon providing at least 30 days advance written notice of redemption, and if, and only if, the last sales price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $8.00 per share for any 20 trading days within a 30-trading-day period ending three business days before the Company sends the notice of redemption. In addition, the Company may not redeem the warrants unless the warrants comprising the units and the shares of common stock underlying those warrants are covered by an effective registration statement from the beginning of the measurement period through the date scheduled for the redemption. If the foregoing conditions are satisfied and the Company calls the warrants for redemption, each warrant holder shall then be entitled to exercise their warrants prior to the date scheduled for redemption. The redemption provisions for the Company’s warrants have been established at a price that is intended to avail to the warrant holders a premium in the market price as compared to the initial exercise price. There can be no assurance, however, that the price of the common stock will exceed either the redemption price of the warrants of $8.00 or the warrant exercise price of $5.75 after the Company calls the warrants for redemption.

 

Common Stock

 

In December 2014, the Company purchased 6,678,358 shares of its common stock in the Offer for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $16.1 million, or $2.41 per share, which represented approximately 78% of the outstanding shares as of the date of the Offer. The Company retired all shares purchased in the Offer. Shares not purchased in the Offer because of proration or conditional tenders were returned to the tendering stockholders at the Company’s expense promptly after the Offer terminated. The Company had 1,883,639 shares of common stock outstanding after the Offer.

 

During the third quarter of 2015, the Company’s board of directors approved a program to repurchase up to $650 thousand of the Company’s common stock. In connection therewith, the Company bought back 139,070 shares of its common stock for approximately $0.2 million or $1.40 per share. At September 30, 2015, 1,744,569 shares of common stock were outstanding.

Note 5 — Related-Party Transactions

 

In March 2015, the Company’s chief executive officer and chief operating officer resigned and Ailon Grushkin, the Company’s chairman of the board of directors and president, was named chief executive officer. In March 2015, the Company also entered into the Consulting Agreement with Nano. Mr. Grushkin is the only member of Nano. Pursuant to the terms of the Consulting Agreement, Nano shall provide services normally provided by a chief executive officer of the Company, as determined and directed by the Company, and shall provide office facilities for the Company. The Company agreed to pay Nano $90 thousand during the year ending December 31, 2015 for such services. The term of the Consulting Agreement shall continue until December 31, 2015 and shall thereafter renew for successive one (1) year terms unless otherwise terminated by either party in accordance with the terms of the Consulting Agreement. The Company recorded approximately $23 thousand and $68 thousand of consultant fees during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.

 

Prior to March 2015, management services were provided under an agreement with SMG Advisors, a company controlled by the Company’s officers. That agreement expired in December 2014. Under that agreement, the Company paid the Manager a fee of approximately $0.2 million and $0.5 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively.

 

The Company believes that all related-party transactions were made on terms no less favorable to the Company than could have been obtained from unaffiliated parties. The Company did not engage in any transactions with its officers and directors involving purchasing, leasing, lending, or selling indium to or from the Company, except pursuant to the terms of the MSA.

Overview

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008.  From inception through December 31, 2014, our primary business purpose was to stockpile indium, a specialty metal that is being increasingly used as a raw material in a wide variety of consumer electronics manufacturing applications. The primary commercial application of indium is in coatings for the flat panel display industry and in the liquid crystal display, or LCD, industry on electronic devices such as television sets, computer monitors, cell phones and digital cameras. Indium is increasingly being used as a raw material in light emitting diodes, or LED, and in the solar energy industry. Its main use in solar energy applications is for high-efficiency photovoltaic cells in the form of thin-film photovoltaic. Other uses of indium are in electrical components, alloys and solders. From time to time, we also lent, leased and sold indium when management believed it was advantageous.

 

In December 2013, our board of directors authorized management to sell our entire stockpile of indium in 2014 based on prevailing market conditions. We currently do not anticipate purchasing any additional indium. During 2014, we sold all of the remaining indium from our stockpile. As a result, we are no longer in the business of purchasing and selling indium. We have begun evaluating strategic options including the acquisition of a new line of business or the sale or full liquidation of the Company. In connection therewith, in May 2015, the Company entered into an agreement with an adviser to assist in identifying potential strategic options. Such agreement was terminated on July 31, 2015. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, we paid the advisor $17 thousand and $33 thousand, respectively. There can be no assurance that we will enter into any such transaction, and if so, on terms favorable to us.

 

In December 2014, we purchased 6,678,358 shares of our common stock in a tender offer, referred to herein as the Offer, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $16.1 million, or $2.41 per share, which represented 78% of the outstanding shares as of the date of the Offer. We retired all shares purchased in the Offer. Shares not purchased in the Offer because of proration or conditional tenders were returned to the tendering stockholders. There were 1,883,639 shares of our common stock outstanding after the Offer. During the third quarter of 2015, the Company’s board of directors approved a program to repurchase up to $650 thousand of our common stock. In connection therewith, the Company bought back 139,070 shares of its common stock in September 2015 for approximately $0.2 million or $1.40 per share. At September 30, 2015, 1,744,569 shares of our common stock were outstanding.

 

Prior to December 31, 2014, we owned a stockpile of the metal indium. From inception through December 31, 2014, Specialty Metals Group Advisors LLC (referred to herein as SMG Advisors or the Manager), which was a related party, engaged an insured, secure facility in New York owned and operated by Brink’s Global Services U.S.A., Inc. or Brink’s, a bonded warehouse, to store our stockpile. Our chief executive officer or our chief operating officer inspected the facilities at least once per year. Currently, we have no inventory of indium.

 

 13 

 

  

At September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, we had approximately $4.1 million and $4.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, respectively. Our board of directors approved a program for up to $650 thousand for the repurchase of shares of our common stock. In September 2015, we repurchased 139,070 shares of our common stock for approximately $0.2 million leaving a balance of approximately $450 thousand available under the program. Further, our annual cash operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $0.5 million in 2015 while we review our strategic options. We believe that we have sufficient funds to sustain our operations and our corporate initiatives for at least the next 12 months.

 

We had a Management Services Agreement referred to herein as the MSA with SMG Advisors, whose principals were our officers and our directors. The fees paid to the Manager in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 aggregated $0.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively. In 2015, Ailon Grushkin, our chairman of the board of directors and president, was named our chief executive officer. The Company entered into a Consulting Agreement referred to herein as the Consulting Agreement by and between the Company and Nano-Cap Advisors LLC (referred to herein as Nano), a related party. Mr. Grushkin is the only member of Nano. Nano shall provide services normally provided by a chief executive officer of a company as determined and directed by us and provide office facilities for us. For the services to be rendered by Nano to us pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, we agree to pay Nano $90 thousand in 2015. The term of the Consulting Agreement shall continue until December 31, 2015 and shall thereafter renew for successive one (1) year terms unless otherwise terminated by either party in accordance with the terms of the Consulting Agreement. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, we recorded approximately $23 thousand and $68 thousand, respectfully, in consulting fees under this agreement.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation for financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. For a description of our significant accounting policies, see Notes to Financial Statements – Note 2 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies. Of these policies, the following are considered critical to an understanding of the Company’s Financial Statements as they require the application of the most difficult, subjective and complex judgments: (1) Use of Estimates, (2) Common Stock Purchase Contracts, (3) Share-Based Payment Arrangements, and (4) Income Taxes. Management will base its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The FASB recently issued ASU “Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) Liquidation Basis of Accounting” (ASU 2013-07), which requires an entity to prepare its financial statements using the liquidation basis of accounting when liquidation is imminent, as defined in ASU 2013-7. ASU 2013-7’s objective is to eliminate diverse practices by providing guidance about when and how to apply the model. The guidance applies to all entities except for investment companies regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Since there is no imminent plan to liquidate the Company, this ASU does not apply.

 

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. In August 2015, the FASB amended the effective date of this ASU to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and early adoption is only permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. We are evaluating strategic options for us and, subsequent to December 31, 2014, we have no revenue stream. We will evaluate the effect that ASU 2014-09 has on its financial statements and related disclosures and the transition method when and if we will have future revenues.

Three Months Ended September 30, 2015 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2014

 

There were no sales for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as we sold our remaining stockpile of indium during 2014. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, net sales were approximately $4.8 million. Cost of sales was approximately $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2014. Gross profit was approximately $1.3 million or 27% in the three months ended September 30, 2014.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2015, total operating costs were approximately $133 thousand. For the comparable three-month period in 2014, total operating costs were approximately $253 thousand, representing a decrease of approximately $120 thousand or 47%.  The decrease was due principally to lower manager fees offset in part by higher professional fees due to fees paid to a financial advisor in the third quarter of 2015. As we explore strategic initiatives, we expect that our annual cash operating expenses will be approximately $0.5 million in 2015. 

 

We recorded no income taxes during the third quarter of 2015 due to our operating losses in that period. Income taxes of approximately $16 thousand were provided for in the third quarter of 2014. The federal income tax rate was lower than the statutory rate in 2014 due to the utilization of net operating loss carryforwards. The tax provision represented the alternative minimum tax on income that is not offset by net operating losses.

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2015, we incurred a net loss of approximately ($131) thousand (or $(0.07) per basic and diluted share). Net income was approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 (or $0.12 per basic and diluted share). The change was due primarily to the fact that there were no sales in the 2015 period offset in part by lower operating expenses. The basic weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding was 1,874,569 in the third quarter of 2015 compared to 8,561,997 in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in the basic weighted average shares in 2015 was due to the repurchase of shares of common stock in December 2014 and September 2015.

Nine months Ended September 30, 2015 Compared to Nine months Ended September 30, 2014

 

There were no sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 as we sold our remaining stockpile of indium during 2014. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, net sales were approximately $17.1 million. Cost of sales was approximately $12.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. Gross profit was approximately $4.7 million or 27% in the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, total operating costs were approximately $370 thousand. For the comparable six-month period in 2014, total operating costs were approximately $803 thousand, representing a 54% decrease.  The decrease was due principally to lower manager fees and compensation expense in the 2015 nine-month period. As we explore strategic initiatives, we expect that our annual cash operating expenses will approximate $0.5 million in 2015. During the nine-month period ended September 30, 2015, other income decreased approximately $60 thousand when compared to the comparable period in 2014 due to the fact there were no USPA or lease transactions in 2015.

 

We recorded no income taxes during the first nine months of 2015 due to our operating losses in that period. Income taxes of approximately $76 thousand were provided for in the first nine months of 2014 which were included in accounts payable and accued expense at December 31, 2014 and paid in 2015. The federal income tax rate was lower than the statutory rate in 2014 due to the utilization of net operating loss carryforwards. The tax provision represented the alternative minimum tax on income that is not offset by net operating losses.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, we incurred a net loss of approximately ($364) thousand (or $(0.19) per basic and diluted share). Net income was approximately $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 (or $0.46 per basic and diluted share). The change was due primarily to the fact that there were no sales in the 2015 period offset in part by lower operating expenses. The basic weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding was 1,880,562 in the nine months of 2015 compared to 8,561,997 in the 2014 comparable period. The decrease in the basic weighted average shares in 2015 was due to the repurchase of shares of common stock in December 2014 and September 2015.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since our inception and through September 30, 2015, we have incurred accumulated deficits of approximately $6.1 million of which approximately $2.4 million was due to a non-cash preferential dividend to Class A Common Stockholders in 2011. At September 30, 2015, we had working capital of approximately $4.1 million. This represents a decrease of approximately $0.5 million from the working capital of approximately $4.6 million at December 31, 2014. The decrease in working capital was primarily due to the cash used for operations in the first nine months of 2015.

 

As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, we have cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4.1 million and $4.8 million, respectively. The decrease of approximately $0.7 million in the first nine months of 2015 was due primarily to operating expenses for the period, a reduction in accounts payable and accrued expenses and the repurchase of $0.2 million of our common stock. We currently estimate our cash operating expenses to be approximately $0.5 million in 2015. In the third quarter of 2015, our board of directors approved up to $650 thousand to be used to repurchase shares of our common stock. At September 30, 2015, approximately $450 thousand was still available under this program. We believe that the cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2015 should be sufficient to pay our operating costs and fund other corporative initiatives for at least the next 12 months.

 

Although we do not believe we will need to raise additional funds in order to meet the expenditures required for operating our business over the next year, we may need to raise additional capital if we encounter unforeseen costs or if cash is needed for any corporate initiatives. Although, currently we are not a party to any agreement or letter of intent with respect to potential investments in, or acquisitions of businesses, we may enter into these types of arrangements in the future, which could also require us to seek additional equity or debt financing. Additional funds may not be available on terms favorable to us or at all. We have begun evaluating strategic options including the merger or acquisition of a new line of business or the sale or full liquidation of the Company. There can be no assurances that we will enter into any such transactions, and if so, on terms favorable to us.

Cash Flows from Operating Activities

 

The net cash used in operations of approximately $489 thousand in the first nine months of 2015, principally represented cash used for operating expenses and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses. In the first nine months of 2014, cash provided by operations was approximately $15.3 million representing cash from sales of $17.1 million less $1.0 million in sales under the USPA that was paid for in 2013, offset in part by cash used to fund operating costs.

 

Cash Flows from Investing Activities

 

No cash was provided by or used in investing activities in the first nine months of 2015 and 2014.

 

Cash Flows from Financing Activities

 

The net cash used in investing activities in the first nine months of 2015 was due to the repurchase of shares of our common stock under a program approved by our board of directors. No cash was provided by or used in financing activities in the first nine months of 2014.

 

Working Capital

 

At September 30, 2015, we had working capital of approximately $4.1 million. This represents a decrease of approximately $0.5 million from the working capital of approximately $4.6 million at December 31, 2014. The decrease in working capital was primarily due to the cash used in operations in the first nine months of 2015.

 

Off-Balance-Sheet Transactions

 

We are not party to any off-balance-sheet transactions.

 

Contractual Commitments

 

 We are committed to pay Nano $90 thousand in 2015 under our Consulting Agreement with Nano, a related party, for services performed by our chief executive officer. Such contract automatically renews unless terminated by either party.

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive Officer) and our President, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well-designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, as ours are designed to do, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

As of September 30, 2015, we carried out 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 defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective in enabling us to record, process, summarize and report information required to be included in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission within the required time period.
