Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, included in the annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2019, includes a summary of the significant accounting policies used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Adoption of ASU 2016-02 (Topic 842)

 

On October 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2016-02 (Topic 842), “Leases”. ASU 2016-02 requires that a lessee recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from operating leases. A lessee should recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. In transition, lessees and lessors may use the effective date method and elected certain practical expedients allowing the Company not to reassess:

 

  whether expired or existing contracts contain leases under the new definition of a lease;
  lease classification for expired or existing leases; and
  whether previously capitalized initial direct costs would qualify for capitalization under Topic 842.

 

The Company also made the accounting policy decision not to recognize lease assets and liabilities for leases with a term of 12 months or less.

 

See Note 10 for the impact implementing this standard had on our financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued amended guidance, Fair Value Measurement: Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement, to modify the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements based on the concepts in the FASB Concepts Statements, including the consideration of costs and benefits. The new standard is effective for the Company from October 1, 2020. The Company believes adoption will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued amended guidance, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, to remove certain exceptions to the general principles from ASC 740 - Income Taxes, and to improve consistent application of U.S. GAAP for other areas of ASC 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. The guidance is effective for the Company from October 1, 2021; early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the guidance will have on its consolidated financial statement disclosures, results of operations and financial position.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts to conform to the current period presentation.

 

NOTE 3 – LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive outstanding shares of common stock during the period to reflect the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through contingent share arrangements, stock options and warrants.

 

   For the three months ended   For the six months ended 
   March 31,   March 31, 
   2020   2019   2020   2019 
                 
Basic weighted average shares outstanding   6,250,761    1,774,636    5,292,167    1,705,770 
Dilutive effect of options   -    -    -    - 
Dilutive effect of convertible debt   -    -    -    - 
Diluted weighted average shares outstanding   6,250,761    1,774,636    5,292,167    1,705,770 

 

For the three and six months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 1,483,965 and 538,076 shares of common stock, respectively, were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

NOTE 4 – SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

The Company reports and evaluates financial information for two segments: Advanced Technologies (AT) segment, and the Industrial Services (IS) segment. The AT segment develops smart devices and provides progressive design and development solutions to create impactful experiences for mobile, web, virtual and augmented reality, wearables and television as well as providing cutting edge, mission critical security and video surveillance. The IS segment offers single-source expertise and services for rigging, millwrighting, in plant maintenance, equipment erection, relocation, and disassembly to diversified customers in USA in industries such as: chemical, steel, printing, construction, & petrochemical.

NOTE 5 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. A three-level hierarchy is applied to prioritize the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).

 

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under the guidance for fair value measurements are described below:

 

Level 1 — Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date. Our Level 1 assets include cash equivalents, banker’s acceptances, trading securities investments and investment funds. We measure trading securities investments and investment funds at quoted market prices as they are traded in an active market with sufficient volume and frequency of transactions.

 

 11 
 

 

Level 2 — Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. If the asset or liability has a specified contractual term, a Level 2 input must be observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

 

Level 3 — Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date. Level 3 assets and liabilities include cost method investments, goodwill, intangible assets, and property, plant and equipment, which are measured at fair value using a discounted cash flow approach when they are impaired. Quantitative information for Level 3 assets and liabilities reviewed at each reporting period includes indicators of significant deterioration in the earnings performance, credit rating, asset quality, business prospects of the investee, and financial indicators of the investee’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s fair value assets at March 31, 2020 and 2019 are as follows;

 

   Quoted Prices   Significant       
   in Active   Other   Significant   Balance 
   Markets for   Observable   Unobservable   as of

NOTE 10 – LEASES

 

ASC 842, “Leases”, requires that a lessee recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from operating leases. A lessee should recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at either the effective date (the “effective date method”) or the beginning of the earliest period presented (the “comparative method”) using a modified retrospective approach. Under the effective date method, the Company’s comparative period reporting is unchanged. In contrast, under the comparative method, the Company’s date of initial application is the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented, and the Topic 842 transition guidance is then applied to all comparative periods presented. Further, under either transition method, the standard includes certain practical expedients intended to ease the burden of adoption. The Company adopted ASC 842 October 1, 2019 using the effective date method and elected certain practical expedients allowing the Company not to reassess:

 

  whether expired or existing contracts contain leases under the new definition of a lease;
  lease classification for expired or existing leases; and
  whether previously capitalized initial direct costs would qualify for capitalization under Topic 842.

 

The Company also made the accounting policy decision not to recognize lease assets and liabilities for leases with a term of 12 months or less.

 

The Company entered into a financing lease for a single vehicle in the Industrial services segment with a term of 3 years. The Company enters into operating leases for its facilities in New York, United Kingdom, and India, as well as for vehicles for use in our Industrial Services segment. The operating lease terms range from 2 to 5 years. The Company excluded the renewal option on its applicable facility leases from the calculation of its right-of-use assets and lease liabilities.

NOTE 20 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

Cemtrex has evaluated subsequent events up to the date the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued. Cemtrex concluded that the following subsequent events have occurred and require recognition or disclosure in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Notice of Delisting

 

On April 21, 2020, the Company received a notification letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, because the closing bid price for the Company’s Common Stock (CETX) listed on Nasdaq was below $1.00 for 30 consecutive trading days, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2), requiring a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”).

 

Given the recent market conditions, Nasdaq has determined to toll the compliance periods for the bid price and market value of publicly held shares requirements through June 30, 2020. In that regard, on April 16, 2020, Nasdaq filed an immediately effective rule change with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a result, the compliance periods for the Price-based Requirements will be reinstated on July 1, 2020.

 

The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s Common Stock (CETX). In accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a period of 180 calendar days from July 1, 2020, or until December 28, 2020, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If at any time before December 28, 2020 the bid price of the Company’s Common Stock closes at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.

 

Potential Impacts of COVID-19 on our Business

 

The impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic continues to unfold.

Future developments include the duration, scope and severity of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain or mitigate its impact both within and outside the jurisdictions where we operate, the impact on governmental programs and budgets, the development of treatments or vaccines, and the resumption of widespread economic activity. Due to the inherent uncertainty of the unprecedented and rapidly evolving situation, we are unable to predict with any confidence the likely impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our future operations.

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses, and the related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. Although these estimates are based on our knowledge of current events, our actual amounts and results could differ from those estimates. The estimates made are based on historical factors, current circumstances, and the experience and judgment of our management, who continually evaluate the judgments, estimates and assumptions and may employ outside experts to assist in the evaluations.

 

Certain of our accounting policies are deemed “significant”, as they are both most important to the financial statement presentation and require management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. For a discussion of our significant accounting policies, see “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2019.

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2020 increased $272,605 or 3% to $10,581,231 from $10,308,626 for the six months ended March 31, 2019. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue was 43% and 59% of revenues for the six-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. The decrease in General and Administrative Expenses both as a percentage of revenue is the result of reduction in overhead expenses. This increase on a dollar per dollar basis represents mainly the consolidation of Vicon Industries, Inc starting in the second quarter of fiscal year 2019.

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

Research and Development expenses for the six months ended March 31, 2020 was $781,519 compared to $851,128 for the six months ended March 31, 2019. Research and Development expenses are primarily related to the Advanced Technologies Segment’s development of proprietary technology and further developments of the SmartDesk and Artificial Intelligence (AI) connected with security and surveillance systems software.

 

Other Income/(Expense)

 

Other income/(expense) for the first and second quarters of fiscal 2020 was $(1,158,073) as compared to $(979,358) for the first and second quarters of fiscal 2019. Other income/(Expense) for the six months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily due to interest expense.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

During the first and second quarters of fiscal 2020 the Company recorded an income tax provision of $189,543 compared to a benefit of $1,173,509 for the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The provision for income tax is based upon the projected income tax from the Company’s various U.S. and international subsidiaries that are subject to their respective income tax jurisdictions.

 

Comprehensive loss

 

The Company had a comprehensive loss of $4,474,570 or 18% of revenues, for the six-month period ended March 31, 2020 as compared to a comprehensive loss of $6,146,707 or 35% of revenues, for the six months ended March 31, 2019. Comprehensive loss decreased in the first and second quarters as compared to comprehensive loss in the same period last year, as a result of the decrease in general and administrative expenses.

 

Effects of Inflation

 

The Company’s business and operations have not been materially affected by inflation during the periods for which financial information is presented.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Working capital was $6,824,573 at March 31, 2020 compared to $3,240,348 at September 30, 2019. This includes cash and equivalents and restricted cash of $4,063,944 at March 31, 2020 and $2,858,085 at September 30, 2019, respectively. The increase in working capital was primarily due to the increase in the Company’s current assets of $1,249,876 and a decrease in the Company’s current liabilities of $2,289,349.

 

Accounts receivable increased $68,429 or 1% to $6,527,413 at March 31, 2020 from $6,458,984 at September 30, 2019. The increase in accounts receivable is attributable to higher sales in the first and second quarters of fiscal year 2020.

 

Inventories increased $439,280 or 8% to $5,646,435 at March 31, 2020 from $5,207,155 at September 30, 2019. The increase inventories is attributable to the purchase of inventories to fulfill sales bookings not shipped in the second quarter.

 

Operating activities used $748,931 of cash for the six months ended March 31, 2020 compared to providing $178,096 of cash for the six months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in operating cash flows was primarily due to the increase in operating assets, as compared to the same period a year ago. Discontinued operations for the six months ended March 31, 2019 provided cash of $2,391,479.

 

Investment activities used $4,132,215 of cash for the six months ended March 31, 2020 compared to using cash of $746,056 during the six-month period ended March 31, 2019. Investing activities for the first and second quarters of fiscal year 2020 were driven by the Company’s investment in fixed assets offset by proceeds from the sale of marketable securities. Discontinued operations for the six months ended March 31, 2019 used cash of $119,482.

 

Financing activities provided $6,271,556 of cash in the six-month period ended March 31, 2020 as compared to providing cash of $1,363,052 in the six-month period ended March 31, 2019. Financing activities were primarily driven by proceeds from notes payable, proceeds from bank loans, and proceeds from securities purchase agreements offset by payments on bank loans, notes payable, expenses of notes payable and equity offerings, and use of the Company’s revolving credit lines. Discontinued operations for the six months ended March 31, 2019 used cash of $1,417,926.

 

We believe that our cash on hand and cash generated by operations is sufficient to meet the capital demands of our current operations during the 2020 fiscal year (ending September 30, 2020). Any major increases in sales, particularly in new products, may require substantial capital investment. Failure to obtain sufficient capital could materially adversely impact our growth potential.

 

Overall, there is no guarantee that cash flow from our existing or future operations and any external capital that we may be able to raise will be sufficient to meet our expansion goals and working capital needs.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures reporting as promulgated under the Exchange Act is defined as controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our CEO and our CFO have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2020. Based on their evaluation, our management has concluded that as of March 31, 2020 there is a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. The material weakness relates to the Company lacking sufficient accounting personnel. The shortage of accounting personal resulted in the Company lacking entity level controls around the review of period-end reporting processes, accounting policies and public disclosures. This deficiency is common in small companies, similar to us, with limited personnel.

 

In order to mitigate the material weakness, the Board of Directors has assigned a priority to the short-term and long-term improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. Our Board of Directors will work with management to continuously review controls and procedures to identified deficiencies and implement remediation within our internal controls over financial reporting and our disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

While there was no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the Company’s last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, the Company is taking steps to improve its internal controls by obtaining additional accounting personnel.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

 

Our management, including our CEO and CFO, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected.
