11

 

 

(b) In the event Buyer and Shareholder disagree on any matters or components relating to the WIP Statement, such matters shall, at or prior to Closing, be summarized in reasonable detail in separate written statements, prepared by each of Buyer and Shareholder and submitted to the other party, and which statements shall include the dollar value of the underlying dispute. Within ten (10) days following Closing, Buyer and Seller shall together engage: (A) an independent third party with familiarity in conducting inventories in the Business (if such disputed matters relate to the WIP Contract Completion Percentage), and/or (B) an independent accounting firm (if such disputed matters relate to the calculation of the WIP Actual Earned Amount or the WIP Adjustment) to review such disputed matter(s) (as applicable, the “Reviewer”). Following the engagement of the Reviewer, each party, no later than forty-eight (48) hours thereafter, shall submit their written statements, together with any other information deemed relevant by them, to the Reviewer(s). A party failing to submit its summary within this timeframe shall be deemed to have waived such right of submission under this Section 2.06(b). The Reviewer(s) shall make a determination on the disputed matters submitted to it, and the parties shall use commercially reasonable best efforts to cause the Reviewer to make such determinations within thirty (30) days of the Closing Date, which determination shall be final and binding on the parties absent manifest error. The parties shall take all such further actions and provide all such further information as reasonably requested by the applicable Reviewer. The fees and expenses of the Reviewer(s) (“Reviewer Fees”) shall be borne equally by the Buyer and Shareholder, and shall be paid immediately following the resolution by the Reviewer under this Section 2.06.

 

(c) An amount equal to the dollar value of the disputed amounts shall be withheld by the Buyer at the Closing.

The Buyer and Seller may, as an alternative to the dispute resolution process set forth above, mutually agree to split or agree on any alternative remedy with respect to such disputed amounts upon the joint written consent of the Buyer and Seller.

Seller Parties and Buyer agree that the Purchase Price shall be allocated among the Purchased Assets for all purposes (including Tax and financial accounting) as shown on Schedule 2.07 (the “Allocation Schedule”). The Allocation Schedule shall be binding upon the Buyer and the Seller, and neither the Buyer nor the Seller shall file (or permit the filing of) any Tax Return, or take a position (or permit a position to be taken) with a Governmental Authority, that is inconsistent with the Allocation Schedule unless otherwise required by a final “determination” within the meaning of Code Section 1313.

Section 2.08 Third Party Consents; Non-Assignable Contracts. To the extent that Seller’s rights under any Contract or Permit constituting a Purchased Asset, or any other Purchased Asset, may not be assigned to Buyer without the consent of another Person which has not been obtained, this Agreement shall not constitute an agreement to assign the same if an attempted assignment would constitute a breach thereof or be unlawful, and Seller, at its expense, shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain any such required consent(s) as promptly as possible. If any such consent shall not be obtained or if any attempted assignment would be ineffective or would impair Buyer’s rights under the Purchased Asset in question so that Buyer would not in effect acquire the benefit of all such rights, Seller, to the maximum extent permitted by law and the Purchased Asset, shall act after the Closing as Buyer’s agent in order to obtain for it the benefits thereunder and shall cooperate, to the maximum extent permitted by Law and the Purchased Asset, with Buyer in any other reasonable arrangement designed to provide such benefits to Buyer. Notwithstanding any provision in this Section 2.08 to the contrary, Buyer shall not be deemed to have waived its rights under Section 7.01(e) (in respect of Section 3.02(a)(xiii)) hereof unless and until Buyer either provides written waivers thereof or elects to proceed to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement at Closing. During such period in which the applicable Contract or Permit is not assigned to Buyer, Seller and Shareholder will, subject to the terms and conditions of the Subcontractor Agreement, make such arrangements as may be necessary to enable Buyer to receive all the economic rights and benefits under such Contract and/or Permit accruing on and after the Closing Date.

 

Section 2.09 Deposit Escrow. Within five (5) days of the date hereof, the Buyer shall deliver to the Deposit Escrow Agent the sum of One Hundred Fifty Thousand and 00/00 Dollars ($150,000.00) (the “Deposit”), which Deposit shall be held upon the terms of this Agreement and the Deposit Escrow Agreement.

(b) Seller Parties shall be solely responsible, and Buyer shall have no obligations whatsoever for, any compensation or other amounts payable to any current or former employee, officer, director, independent contractor or consultant of the Business, including, without limitation, hourly pay, commission, bonus, salary, accrued vacation, fringe, pension or profit sharing benefits or severance pay for any period relating to the service with Seller at any time on or prior to the Closing Date and Seller shall pay all such amounts to all entitled persons on or prior to the Closing Date (“Pre-Closing Employee Obligations”); provided, however, Seller Parties shall not be obligated to pay the portion of the Pre-Closing Employee Obligations attributable to accrued and unused vacation, paid time off, or other similar amounts that are accrued through the Closing Date and reflected in the Employee Benefit Credit (“Accrued Employee Vacation”), so long as the Employee Benefit Credit is credited to the Buyer at the Closing.

 

33

 

 

(c) Seller Parties shall remain solely responsible for the satisfaction of all claims for medical, dental, life insurance, health accident or disability benefits brought by or in respect of current or former employees, officers, directors, independent contractors or consultants of the Business or the spouses, dependents or beneficiaries thereof, which claims relate to events occurring on or prior to the Closing Date. Seller also shall remain solely responsible for all worker’s compensation claims of any current or former employees, officers, directors, independent contractors or consultants of the Business, which relate to events occurring on or prior to the Closing Date. Seller shall pay, or cause to be paid, all such amounts to the appropriate persons as and when due.

 

(d) Each employee of the Business who becomes employed by Buyer in connection with the transaction shall be given service credit for the purpose of eligibility under the group health plan and eligibility and vesting only under the defined contribution retirement plan for his or her period of service with the Seller prior to the Closing Date; provided, however, that (i) such credit shall be given pursuant to payroll or plan records, at the election of Buyer, in its sole and absolute discretion; and (ii) such service crediting shall be permitted and consistent with Buyer’s defined contribution retirement plan.

 

Section 6.06 Confidentiality. From and after the Closing, each of Seller and each Shareholder, shall, and shall cause each of its respective Affiliates to, hold, and shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause its or their respective Representatives to hold, in confidence any and all information, whether written or oral, concerning the Business, except to the extent that such Seller or Shareholder can show that such information (a) is generally available to and known by the public through no fault of such Seller or Shareholder, any of its Affiliates or their respective Representatives; or (b) is lawfully acquired by such Seller or Shareholder, any of its Affiliates or their respective Representatives from and after the Closing from sources which are not prohibited from disclosing such information by a legal, contractual or fiduciary obligation. If such Seller or Shareholder or any of its respective Affiliates or their respective Representatives are compelled to disclose any information by judicial or administrative process or by other requirements of Law, such Seller or Shareholder shall promptly notify Buyer in writing and shall disclose only that portion of such information which such Seller or Shareholder is advised by its counsel in writing is legally required to be disclosed, provided that such Seller or Shareholder shall use reasonable best efforts to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded such information.

 

34

 

 

Section 6.07 Non-Competition; Non-Solicitation.

 

(a) For a period of five (5) years commencing on the Closing Date (the “Restricted Period”), neither Seller nor Shareholder, and none of them shall permit any of their respective Affiliates to, directly or indirectly, (i) engage in or assist others in engaging in the Business in the Territory; (ii) have an interest in any Person that engages directly or indirectly in the Business in the Territory in any capacity, including as a partner, shareholder, member, employee, principal, agent, trustee or consultant; or (iii) cause, induce or encourage any material actual or prospective client, customer, supplier or licensor of the Business (including any existing or former client or customer of Seller and any Person that becomes a client or customer of the Business after the Closing), or any other Person who has a material business relationship with the Business, to terminate or modify any such actual or prospective relationship. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (A) Seller or Shareholder may own, directly or indirectly, solely as an investment, securities of any Person traded on any national securities exchange if such Seller or Shareholder is not a controlling Person of, or a member of a group which controls, such Person and does not, directly or indirectly, own 5% or more of any class of securities of such Person, and (B) the Seller and the Shareholder shall be permitted to provide design consulting services to clients and customers of the Business.

 

(b) During the Restricted Period, neither Seller nor Shareholder shall, and none of them shall permit any of their respective Affiliates to, directly or indirectly, hire or solicit any person who is offered employment by Buyer pursuant to Section 6.05(a) or is or was employed in the Business during the Restricted Period, or encourage any such employee to leave such employment or hire any such employee who has left such employment, except pursuant to a general solicitation which is not directed specifically to any such employees; provided, that nothing in this Section 6.07(b) shall prevent Seller, Shareholder, or any of their respective Affiliates from hiring (i) any employee whose employment has been terminated by Buyer or (ii) after 180 days from the date of termination of employment, any employee whose employment has been terminated by the employee.

 

(c) Each of Seller and Shareholder hereby acknowledges that a breach or threatened breach of this Section 6.07 would give rise to irreparable harm to Buyer, for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy, and hereby agrees that in the event of a breach or a threatened breach by Seller or Shareholder of any such obligations, Buyer shall, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that may be available to it in respect of such breach, be entitled to equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction (without any requirement to post bond).

 

(d) Each of Seller and each Shareholder acknowledges that the restrictions contained in this Section 6.07 are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate interests of Buyer and constitute a material inducement to Buyer to enter into this Agreement and consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. In the event that any covenant contained in this Section 6.07 should ever be adjudicated to exceed the time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Law in any jurisdiction, then any court is expressly empowered to reform such covenant, and such covenant shall be deemed reformed, in such jurisdiction to the maximum time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Law. The covenants contained in this Section 6.07 and each provision hereof are severable and distinct covenants and provisions. The invalidity or unenforceability of any such covenant or provision as written shall not invalidate or render unenforceable the remaining covenants or provisions hereof, and any such invalidity or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such covenant or provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

35

 

 

Section 6.08 Books and Records.

 

(a) For a period of five (5) years after the Closing, Buyer shall:

 

(i) retain the Books and Records (including personnel files) relating to periods prior to the Closing in a manner reasonably consistent with the prior practices of Seller; and

 

(ii) upon reasonable notice, afford the Seller’s Representatives reasonable access (including the right to make, at Seller’s expense, photocopies), during normal business hours, to such Books and Records.

 

(b) In order to facilitate the resolution of any claims made by or against or incurred by Buyer after the Closing, or for any other reasonable purpose, for a period of five (5) years following the Closing, Seller shall (i) retain the books and records (including personnel files) of Seller which relate to the Business and its operations for periods prior to the Closing; and (ii) upon reasonable notice, afford the Buyer’s Representatives reasonable access (including the right to make, at Buyer’s expense, photocopies), during normal business hours, to all such books and records of Seller retained by Seller.

 

(c) Neither Buyer nor Seller shall be obligated to provide the other party with access to any books or records (including personnel files) pursuant to this Section 6.08 where such access would violate any Law.

 

Section 6.09 Public Announcements. Unless otherwise required by applicable Law, no party to this Agreement shall make any public announcements in respect of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby or otherwise communicate with any news media without the prior written consent of the other party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), and the parties shall cooperate as to the timing and contents of any such announcement.

 

Section 6.10 Transfer Taxes. All transfer, documentary, sales, use, stamp, registration, value added and other such Taxes and fees (including any penalties and interest) incurred in connection with this Agreement and the Ancillary Documents (the “Transfer Taxes”) shall be borne and paid by Seller Parties when due. Seller Parties shall, at their own expense, timely file any Tax Return or other document with respect to such Taxes or fees (and Buyer shall cooperate with respect thereto as necessary). Notwithstanding the foregoing, all sales tax due on the transfer of titled vehicles as part of the Purchased Assets under this Agreement, shall be paid by Buyer and shall, therefore, not be included in the term Transfer Taxes as used in this Agreement.

 

36

 

 

Section 6.11 Release of Guaranties for Bonded Work. Buyer will use reasonable best efforts to assist Seller and Shareholder in having all of Shareholder’s personal guaranties of Seller Liabilities relating to ordinary course business operations (including bonded jobs), and not relating to any borrowed indebtedness of the Seller, released and terminated at or after the Closing. If any such guaranty is not released, Buyer shall indemnify, hold harmless and reimburse Shareholder for any Liability arising after the Closing Date with respect to any such guaranty; provided, however, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, and for the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing obligation to indemnify, hold harmless and reimburse Seller and/or Shareholder shall not apply to Liabilities arising prior to the Closing that are not Assumed Liabilities.

 

Section 6.12 Bulk Sales Clearance. If requested by Buyer, Seller shall notify (“Tax Notice”) all of the taxing authorities in the jurisdictions that impose Taxes on Seller or where Seller has a duty to file Tax Returns of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement in the form and manner required by such taxing authorities, if the failure to make such notifications or receive any available tax clearance certificate could subject the Buyer to any Taxes of Seller. If any taxing authority asserts that Seller is liable for any Tax, Seller shall promptly pay any and all such amounts and shall provide evidence to the Buyer that such liabilities have been paid in full or otherwise satisfied.

 

Section 6.13 Change of Name; Permitted Use. On the Closing Date, or within ten (10) days of the date thereof, neither Seller Parties, nor any of their Affiliates will use the name “Heisey Mechanical” or any similar variant thereof, and the Seller Parties will take all necessary steps to permit Buyer to use this name, including filing a name change amendment with the requisite Governmental Authority or Office of the Secretary of State. Use of such names shall be exclusive to the rights of Buyer.

 

Section 6.14 Closing Conditions From the date hereof until the Closing, each party hereto shall use reasonable best efforts to take such actions as are necessary to expeditiously satisfy the closing conditions set forth in ARTICLE VII hereof.

 

Section 6.15 Further Assurances. Following the Closing, each of the parties hereto shall, and shall cause their respective Affiliates to, execute and deliver such additional documents, instruments, conveyances and assurances and take such further actions as may be reasonably required to carry out the provisions hereof and give effect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Documents.

Section 8.05 Indemnification Procedures. The party making a claim under this ARTICLE VIII is referred to as the “Indemnified Party”, and the party against whom such claims are asserted under this ARTICLE VIII is referred to as the “Indemnifying Party”.

 

(a) Third-Party Claims. If any Indemnified Party receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any Action made or brought by any Person who is not a party to this Agreement or an Affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a Representative of the foregoing (a “Third-Party Claim”) against such Indemnified Party with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of such notice of such Third-Party Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Third-Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party, to assume the defense of any Third-Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense and by the Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense; provided, that if the Indemnifying Party is a Seller Party, such Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to defend or direct the defense of any such Third-Party Claim that (x) is asserted directly by or on behalf of a Person that is a supplier or customer of the Business, or (y) seeks an injunction or other equitable relief against the Indemnified Party. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third-Party Claim, subject to Section 8.05(b), it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third-Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense of any Third-Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to control the defense thereof. The fees and disbursements of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnified Party, provided, that if in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, (A) there are legal defenses available to an Indemnified Party that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party; or (B) there exists a conflict of interest between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party that cannot be waived, the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnified Party in each jurisdiction for which the Indemnified Party determines counsel is required. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third-Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement, or fails to diligently prosecute the defense of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party may, subject to Section 8.05(b), pay, compromise, defend such Third-Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third- Party Claim. Seller Parties and Buyer shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third-Party Claim, including making available (subject to the provisions of Section 6.06) records relating to such Third-Party Claim and furnishing, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third-Party Claim.

 

42

 

 

(b) Settlement of Third-Party Claims. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall not enter into settlement of any Third-Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, except as provided in this Section 8.05(b). If a firm offer is made to settle a Third-Party Claim without leading to liability or the creation of a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnified Party and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnified Party from all liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third-Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party desires to accept and agree to such offer, the Indemnifying Party shall give written notice to that effect to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer within ten (10) days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnified Party may continue to contest or defend such Third-Party Claim and in such event, the maximum liability of the Indemnifying Party as to such Third-Party Claim shall not exceed the amount of such settlement offer. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer and also fails to assume defense of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle the Third-Party Claim upon the terms set forth in such firm offer to settle such Third-Party Claim. If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 8.05(a), it shall not agree to any settlement without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).

 

(c) Direct Claims. Any Action by an Indemnified Party on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third-Party Claim (a “Direct Claim”) shall be asserted by the Indemnified Party giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) days after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of such Direct Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have thirty (30) days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. The Indemnified Party shall allow the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors to investigate the matter or circumstance alleged to give rise to the Direct Claim, and whether and to what extent any amount is payable in respect of the Direct Claim and the Indemnified Party shall assist the Indemnifying Party’s investigation by giving such information and assistance (including access to the Indemnified Party’s premises and personnel and the right to examine and copy any accounts, documents or records) as the Indemnifying Party or any of its professional advisors may reasonably request. If the Indemnifying Party does not so respond within such thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnified Party on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

 

43

 

 

Section 8.06 Payments; Rights of Setoff; Indemnification Escrow Fund; Holdback under Note.

 

(a) Once a Loss is agreed to by the Indemnifying Party or finally adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this ARTICLE VIII, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations within fifteen (15) days of such adjudication by wire transfer of immediately available funds. The parties hereto agree that should an Indemnifying Party not make full payment of any such obligations within such fifteen (15) day period, any amount payable shall accrue interest from and including the date of agreement of the Indemnifying Party or final, non-appealable adjudication to the date such payment has been made at a rate per annum equal to eight percent (8%). Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual number of days elapsed.

 

(b) A Buyer Indemnitee shall be entitled to (but shall not be required to), in its sole discretion, in addition to all other remedies they may have, recover some or all of such amount by, upon written notice to the Indemnifying Party, setting off such amount against any amounts then due and payable by the Buyer or any of its Affiliates (including the Seller): (i) under the Note, or (ii) to any Seller Party or any of their respective Affiliates under this Agreement or any Ancillary Document or any other agreement with such Seller Party or any of their respective Affiliates. In each case, the exercise of such right to cancel or set off set forth in this Section 8.06 shall not constitute a breach of any Indemnified Party’s obligations under this Agreement, any Ancillary Document or any other agreement with such Seller Party, and the exercise or failure to exercise such right to cancel or set off shall not constitute an election of remedies or limit any Buyer Indemnified Party in any manner in the enforcement of any other remedies that may be available to such Indemnified Party.

 

44

 

 

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, and solely in connection with a Loss of a Seller or Shareholder arising out of Section 8.03(b) that resulted from either: (i) services performed by the Buyer under the Subcontracted Contracts, but only to the extent that the underlying Liabilities associated with such Loss arose from services conducted and/or performed by the Buyer subsequent to the Closing, or (ii) the Buyer’s obligations under Section 6.11 of this Agreement, once a Loss is agreed to by the Indemnifying Party or finally adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this ARTICLE VIII, a Seller Indemnitee shall be entitled to recover some or all of such amount from the Indemnification Escrow Fund pursuant to the terms of the Indemnification Escrow Agreement until the entire Indemnification Escrow Fund has been depleted, by providing written notice to the Buyer. Upon receipt of such written notice, Buyer and Seller Parties shall deliver joint written instructions to the Indemnification Escrow Agent to release the portion of the Indemnification Escrow Fund to Seller Parties in an amount equal to the lesser of: (x) the amount of such Loss, or (y) the total amount held in the Indemnification Escrow Fund, in accordance with payment instructions provided by the Seller Parties. The Indemnification Escrow Fund shall terminate on the earlier of: (i) the date that is eighteen (18) months after the Closing Date, or (ii) the completion of the last Subcontracted Contract, in each case subject to any pending claims made under this Section 8.03(c) and to the terms set forth in the Indemnification Escrow Agreement. Upon the termination of the Indemnification Escrow Fund pursuant to the terms hereof and the Indemnification Escrow Agreement, the Buyer and Seller Parties shall instruct the Indemnification Escrow Agent to pay any amounts remaining in the Indemnification Escrow Fund to the Buyer, to be distributed in accordance with instructions received from the Buyer.

 

(d) In the event that any claim shall have been properly asserted by Buyer in accordance with this Agreement on or prior to the maturity date of the Note, and remains pending on the maturity date of the Note (any such claim, a “Pending Claim”), (i) the amounts payable to the Seller under the Note on the maturity date of the Note shall be the principal and interest then outstanding, minus up to the aggregate amount of such Pending Claim (the amount of such Pending Claim, the “Withheld Amount”), (ii) upon receipt of such payment, the Note shall terminate and be of no further force or effect, and (iii) the Withheld Amount shall be held back by the Buyer, only to be released by the Buyer in accordance herewith, promptly upon final resolution of such Pending Claim in accordance with Section 8.06(a) of this Agreement (“Pending Claim Resolution”). If the Pending Claim Resolution is determined in favor of the Buyer and the amount of the corresponding Loss is equal to or in excess of the Pending Claim, in addition to such other remedies granted hereunder, the Buyer shall retain the Withheld Amount in full. If the Pending Claim Resolution is determined only in part in favor of the Buyer and the amount of the corresponding Loss is less than the amount of the Pending Claim, in additional to such other remedies granted hereunder, the Buyer shall retain such portion of the Withheld Amount equal to the Loss, and shall promptly pay to the Seller the portion of the Withheld Amount in excess of the Loss, in each case apportioning to Buyer and Seller the pro-rated portion of any accrued interest determined in accordance with this Article VIII. If the Pending Claim Resolution is determined in favor of the Seller, the Buyer shall promptly pay to the Seller the Withheld Amount in full, together with any interest accrued thereon in accordance with this Article VIII.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Heisey Mechanical Ltd.

Columbia, PA

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Heisey Mechanical Ltd. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2022, and the related statement of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2022, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

HEISEY MECHANICAL, LTD.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2022

 

NOTE A - NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

The Company is a service contractor/fabricator that specializes in customized metal fabrication in the industrial market. The Company performs specialty projects for commercial and governmental entities in the food, chemical, manufacturing, water treatment, and wastewater treatment industries. Their manufacturing strengths are in the forming and welding of stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum. The Company is located in Columbia, Pennsylvania and provide services for customers primarily within 100 miles of the corporate office.

 

NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, if any, at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are stated at outstanding balances, less an allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts is established through provisions charged against income. Accounts deemed to be uncollectible are charged against the allowance, and subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance for doubtful accounts is maintained at a level considered adequate to provide for losses that can be reasonably anticipated. Management’s periodic evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is based on experience, aging of the receivables, adverse situations that may affect a customer’s ability to pay, current economic conditions, and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that may be susceptible to significant change. Unpaid balances remaining after the stated payment terms are considered past due.

 

Revenue and Cost Recognition

 

Contracts

 

The Company’s revenue is derived from contracts with customers. These contracts fall into two categories, “Fixed Price” and “Time and Material Price” contracts. The Company determines the appropriate accounting treatment for each contract at its inception. Generally, contracts have a period from six months to two years.

 

The Company accounts for a contract when: (i) it has approval and commitment from both parties, (ii) the rights of the parties are identified, (iii) payment terms are identified, (iv) the contract has commercial substance, and (v) collectability of consideration is probable. The Company considers the start of a project to be when the above criteria have been met and it has written authorization from the customer to proceed.

 

Fixed price contracts

 

The Company’s revenue from fixed price contracts is recognized on the percentage-of-completion method, measured by the percentage of costs incurred to estimated total costs for each contract. When the job is started and in process, all actual costs incurred (labor and materials) are processed and reconciled at month end. The percentage of completion and revenue earned is calculated at month end. Billings are created based on contract criteria agreed upon and reconciled to determine if any costs in excess of billing or billings in excess of costs exist. Changes in job performance, job conditions, estimated contract costs and profitability, and final contract settlements may result in revisions to costs and income. The effects of these revisions are recognized in the period in which the revisions are determined. Provisions for estimated losses on uncompleted contracts are made in the period in which such losses are determined. This measurement and comparison process requires updates to the estimate of total costs to complete the contract, and these updates may include subjective assessments and judgments. For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company recognized $6,633,438 of revenue on fixed price contracts.

 

Time and material price contracts

 

Revenue from time and material price contracts is recognized based on costs incurred and projected markup on costs. Revenue from these contracts will vary based on actual labor, materials and overhead costs charged to the job and the negotiated billing rates. Contracts are initiated by customers or through bids if with a municipality. Any materials used and time spent within the shop on the job is assigned to the appropriate job and reconciliated monthly. Management bills the customer and records the revenue earned from contract. Depending on the contract terms, billings could be based on certain milestones stipulated in the contract. If this is the case, unbilled revenue is recorded at month end based on time and materials incurred and markup. For the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company recognized $1,833,344 of revenue on time and material price contracts.

 

Performance Obligations

 

Generally, the Company’s contracts contain one performance obligation. A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer and is the unit of account. The Company’s performance of the contracts with customers typically provides a significant service of integrating a complex set of tasks and components into a single project or capability (even if that single project results in the delivery of multiple units), and as such, the entire contract and/or purchase order is accounted for as one performance obligation. The transaction price is allocated to the performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied with the continuous transfer of control to the customer.

 

Less commonly, a contract may be considered to have multiple performance obligations even when they are part of a single contract. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation using the best estimate of the standalone selling price of each distinct good or service in the contract.

 

The Company recognizes revenue over time for the majority of the services it performs as (i) control continuously transfers to the customer as work progresses at a project location controlled by the customer and (ii) the Company has the right to bill the customer as costs are incurred.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2022

 

Variable Consideration

 

The transaction price for the Company’s contracts may include variable consideration, which includes changes to transaction price for approved and unapproved change orders, claims and incentives. Change orders, claims and incentives are generally not distinct from the existing contract due to the significant integration service provided in the context of the contract and are accounted for as a modification of the existing contract and performance obligation. The Company estimates variable consideration for a performance obligation at the probability weighted value it expects to receive (or the most probable amount it expects to incur in the case of liquidated damages, if any), utilizing estimation methods that best predict the amount of consideration to which it will be entitled (or will be incurred in the case of liquidated damages, if any). The Company includes variable consideration in the estimated transaction price to the extent it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur or when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved. The Company’s estimates of variable consideration and determination of whether to include estimated amounts in transaction price are based largely on an assessment of its anticipated performance and all information (historical, current and forecasted) that is reasonably available to the Company. The effect of variable consideration on the transaction price of a performance obligation is recognized as an adjustment to revenue on a cumulative catch-up basis. To the extent unapproved change orders and claims reflected in transaction price (or accounted for as a reduction of the transaction price in the case of liquidated damages) are not resolved in the Company’s favor, or to the extent incentives reflected in transaction price are not earned, there could be reductions in, or reversals of, previously recognized revenue.

 

Contract Assets and Liabilities

 

Project contracts typically provide for a schedule of billings on percentage of completion of specific tasks inherent in the fulfillment of the Company’s performance obligation(s). The schedules for such billings usually do not precisely match the schedule on which costs are incurred. As a result, contract revenue recognized in the statements of operations can and usually does differ from amounts that can be billed to the customer at any point during the contract. Amounts by which cumulative contract revenue recognized on a contract as of a given date exceeds cumulative billings and unbilled receivables to the customer under the contract are reflected as a current asset in the balance sheets under the caption “Contract assets.” Amounts by which cumulative billings to the customer under a contract as of a given date exceed cumulative contract revenue recognized are reflected as a current liability in the balance sheets under the caption “Contract liabilities.” Conditional retainage represents the portion of the contract price withheld until the work is substantially complete for assurance of the Company’s obligations to complete the job. Retainage for which the Company has an unconditional right to payment that is only subject to the passage of time are classified as contract receivable. Retainage subject to conditions other than the passage of time do not meet the definition of a receivable and are therefore included in contract assets and contract liabilities, as determined on a contract-by-contract basis. Stored materials represent items purchased in advance of its use on contracts and stored on the work sight. Revenues on uninstalled materials are recognized when control is transferred to the customer. Under certain circumstances (e.g., transfer of control occurs significantly before services are provided, the cost of the material is significant), revenue on certain uninstalled third-party materials is recognized when the cost is incurred; however, profit is not recognized until the material is ultimately in the project.

 

The opening and closing balances of contract receivables, contract assets and contract liabilities from contracts with customers are as follows:

 

   Contract Receivables   Contract Assets   Contract Liabilities 
Balance, January 1, 2022  $1,616,251   $2,005,513   $93,285

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2022

 

For the year ended December 31, 2022, net revenue recognized from the Company’s performance obligations satisfied in previous periods was not material. As of December 31, 2022, conditional retainage of 9,692 was considered long-term.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of parts and supplies held for use in the ordinary course of business. Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost determined principally on the first-in, first-out method. Net realizable value considers the total amount of money an asset might generate upon its sale, less a reasonable estimate of the costs, fees, and taxes associated with that sale. Where shipping and handling costs on inventory purchases are borne by the Company, these charges are included in inventory and charged to cost of services upon use in the Company’s projects or the providing of services.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost. Any self-constructed property and equipment is recorded at the total cost of the materials plus a standard cost for labor and overhead. Depreciation of property and equipment is determined using the straight-line method for financial statement purposes at rates based on the following estimated useful lives:

 

Office Furniture and Fixtures 3 – 10 years
Machinery and Other Equipment 5 – 10 years
Vehicles 5 years
Leasehold improvements shorter of lease or life of the asset

 

Expenditures for major improvements that extend the useful lives of equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”, and subsequent related updates, to revise the accounting for leases. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2022, on a modified retrospective basis.

 

The Company is obligated under non-cancelable operating leases for properties. The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception by assessing whether a contract contains a right to control an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. Once a contract is determined to be a lease, the Company determines if a lease is an operating or financing lease. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities (current and long-term) commencing at January l, 2022. For purposes of calculating operating lease liabilities, lease terms include the option to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise that option and begins when the Company has control and possession of the leased property, which may be before payments are due under the lease.

 

Operating right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of lease payments, discounted using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, over the lease term at the commencement date. The Company has elected to apply the standard to total lease consideration (both lease and non-lease components) and therefore classifies common maintenance fees that are included in the monthly payments as lease payments within the lease agreement. The expense for the Company’s leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Leases with terms less than 12 months are not included on the balance sheet.

Long-Lived Assets

 

Management reviews the carrying value of long-lived assets on an ongoing basis. When factors indicate that a long-lived asset may be impaired, management uses an estimate of the undiscounted future cash flows over the remaining life of the asset in measuring whether the long-lived asset’s carrying value is recoverable. If such an analysis indicates that impairment has in fact occurred, the book value of the long-lived asset is written down to its fair value, which is estimated using discounted future cash flows. Management has concluded that no impairment adjustments were required during 2022.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company, with the consent of its stockholders, has elected under the Internal Revenue Code and Pennsylvania and other states’ tax law to be an S corporation. In lieu of corporation income taxes, the stockholders of an S corporation are taxed on their proportionate share of the Company’s taxable income. Therefore, no provision or liability for income taxes has been included in these financial statements.

 

Advertising

 

The Company expenses advertising and promotion costs as incurred. Total advertising and promotion costs amounted to $3,396 for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

Presentation of Sales Tax Collected and Remitted

 

Various states the Company does business in impose sales tax at varying rates on the Company’s sales to non-exempt customers. The Company collects sales tax from customers and remits the entire amount to the applicable states. The Company’s accounting policy is to exclude the tax collected and remitted to the states from revenue and cost of contracts.

 

New Accounting Pronouncement

 

ASU No. 2016-13

 

In June 2016 the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13. Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which makes significant changes to the accounting for credit losses on financial assets and disclosures about them. The guidance applies to a wide variety of financial assets including trade receivables and contract assets and is effective for the Company for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods therein. The new guidance on the current expected credit loss (‘CECL”) impairment model requires an estimate of expected credit losses, measured over the contractual life of an asset,. that considers forecasts of future economic conditions in addition to information about past events and current conditions. It requires entities to consider the risk of loss even if it is remote, which may result in the recognition of credit losses on assets that do not have evidence of credit deterioration. We are currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on our financial statements. The Company does not believe that the recently issued but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.

 

NOTE C – CHANGE IN ESTIMATE

 

During the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company had an increase in estimated profit on contracts, which resulted in a current period increase in net income of approximately $158,000. The increase would have been reported in the preceding period had the increase in estimated profit been known at that time. Revisions in estimated profits are made in the period in which the circumstances requiring revisions become known.

 

NOTE D – ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

 

Accounts receivables, net consist of the following:

 

  

December 31, 2022

 
Accounts receivable  $1,871,425 
Employee advances   3,125 
Allowance for credit losses   (10,000)
   $1,864,550 

 

Accounts receivable include amounts due for services rendered.

 

Employee advances are amounts advanced to employees to be paid back at a later date through agreed payroll deduction.

 

Allowance for credit losses includes estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make the required payments.

 

NOTE E – INVENTORY.

 

Inventory represents raw materials stored at the Company’s facility for use in current or future projects.

 

The Company does not have any allowance for obsolete inventory as of the balance sheet date.

NOTE K – BACKLOG

 

The Company has backlog totaling $13,507,179 as of December 31, 2022, which includes $9,354,302 on its contracts in process as of the balance sheet date. It also includes five contracts for $4,152,877 that have been awarded to the Company as of the report date on which no work was performed prior to the balance sheet date. Of the $13,507,179 in remaining performance obligations the Company expects to earn approximately 90% in the next twelve months.

 

NOTE L – CONTINGENCIES

 

Partially Self-Insured Medical Benefit

 

The Company partially self-insures the medical benefits for its employees. The Company is responsible for the payment of claims up to $35,000 a year per employee and an aggregate amount of $256,262 for the Company. A major medical policy is in place to cover claims in excess of the amounts stated above. At December 31, 2022, the Company did not have any self-insurance accruals for claims incurred but not paid. As of December 31, 2022, the Company recorded a receivable of $28,784, relating to a refund received in the following year on its medical plan.

 

The measurement of these costs requires judgments about the present and expected level of cost per claim. The Company accounts for these costs by reviewing the claims outstanding and projecting the payments.

 

The Company believes the use of this method provides a consistent and effective way to measure this accrual. However, the use of any estimation technique is inherently sensitive given the claims involved and the length of time that there often is until the ultimate cost is known. Changes in healthcare costs and other factors can materially affect the estimates for this liability.

NOTE A - NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

The Company is a service contractor/fabricator that specializes in customized metal fabrication in the industrial market. The Company performs specialty projects for commercial and governmental entities in the food, chemical, manufacturing, water treatment, and wastewater treatment industries. Their manufacturing strengths are in the forming and welding of stainless steel, carbon steel, and aluminum. The Company is located in Columbia, Pennsylvania and provide services for customers primarily within 100 miles of the corporate office.

 

NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, if any, at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are stated at outstanding balances, less an allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts is established through provisions charged against income. Accounts deemed to be uncollectible are charged against the allowance, and subsequent recoveries, if any, are credited to the allowance. The allowance for doubtful accounts is maintained at a level considered adequate to provide for losses that can be reasonably anticipated. Management’s periodic evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is based on experience, aging of the receivables, adverse situations that may affect a customer’s ability to pay, current economic conditions, and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires estimates that may be susceptible to significant change. Unpaid balances remaining after the stated payment terms are considered past due.

 

Revenue and Cost Recognition

 

Contracts

 

The Company’s revenue is derived from contracts with customers. These contracts fall into two categories, “Fixed Price” and Time and Material Price” contracts. The Company determines the appropriate accounting treatment for each contract at its inception.

 

The Company accounts for a contract when: (i) it has approval and commitment from both parties, (ii) the rights of the parties are identified, (iii) payment terms are identified, (iv) the contract has commercial substance, and (v) collectability of consideration is probable. The Company considers the start of a project to be when the above criteria have been met and it has written authorization from the customer to proceed.

 

Fixed price contracts

 

The Company’s revenue from fixed price contracts is recognized on the percentage-of-completion method, measured by the percentage of costs incurred to estimated total costs for each contract. When the job is started and in process, all actual costs incurred (labor and materials) are processed and reconciled at month end. The percentage of completion and revenue earned is calculated at month end. Billings are created based on contract criteria agreed upon and reconciled to determine if any costs in excess of billing or billings in excess of costs exist. Changes in job performance, job conditions, estimated contract costs and profitability, and final contract settlements may result in revisions to costs and income. The effects of these revisions are recognized in the period in which the revisions are determined. Provisions for estimated losses on uncompleted contracts are made in the period in which such losses are determined. This measurement and comparison process requires updates to the estimate of total costs to complete the contract, and these updates may include subjective assessments and judgments. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recognized $2,226,840 and 5,026,814 of fixed price contract revenue, respectively.

 

Time and material price contracts

 

Revenue from time and material price contracts is recognized based on costs incurred and projected markup on costs. Revenue from these contracts will vary based on actual labor, materials and overhead costs charged to the job and the negotiated billing rates. Contracts are initiated by customers or through bids if with a municipality. Any materials used and time spent within the shop on the job is assigned to the appropriate job and reconciliated monthly. Management bills the customer and records the revenue earned from contract. Depending on the contract terms, billings could be based on certain milestones stipulated in the contract. If this is the case, unbilled revenue is recorded at month end based on time and materials incurred and markup. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recognized $323,151 and 675,866 of time and material price contract revenue, respectively.

 

Performance Obligations

 

Generally, the Company’s contracts contain one performance obligation. A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer and is the unit of account. The Company’s performance of the contracts with customers typically provides a significant service of integrating a complex set of tasks and components into a single project or capability (even if that single project results in the delivery of multiple units), and as such, the entire contract and/or purchase order is accounted for as one performance obligation. The transaction price is allocated to the performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied with the continuous transfer of control to the customer.

 

Less commonly, a contract may be considered to have multiple performance obligations even when they are part of a single contract. For contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the transaction price to each performance obligation using the best estimate of the standalone selling price of each distinct good or service in the contract.

 

The Company recognizes revenue over time for the majority of the services it performs as (i) control continuously transfers to the customer as work progresses at a project location controlled by the customer and (ii) the Company has the right to bill the customer as costs are incurred.

Variable Consideration

 

The transaction price for the Company’s contracts may include variable consideration, which includes changes to transaction price for approved and unapproved change orders, claims and incentives. Change orders, claims and incentives are generally not distinct from the existing contract due to the significant integration service provided in the context of the contract and are accounted for as a modification of the existing contract and performance obligation. The Company estimates variable consideration for a performance obligation at the probability weighted value it expects to receive (or the most probable amount it expects to incur in the case of liquidated damages, if any), utilizing estimation methods that best predict the amount of consideration to which it will be entitled (or will be incurred in the case of liquidated damages, if any). The Company includes variable consideration in the estimated transaction price to the extent it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur or when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved. The Company’s estimates of variable consideration and determination of whether to include estimated amounts in transaction price are based largely on an assessment of its anticipated performance and all information (historical, current and forecasted) that is reasonably available to the Company. The effect of variable consideration on the transaction price of a performance obligation is recognized as an adjustment to revenue on a cumulative catch-up basis. To the extent unapproved change orders and claims reflected in transaction price (or accounted for as a reduction of the transaction price in the case of liquidated damages) are not resolved in the Company’s favor, or to the extent incentives reflected in transaction price are not earned, there could be reductions in, or reversals of, previously recognized revenue.

 

Contract Assets and Liabilities

 

Project contracts typically provide for a schedule of billings on percentage of completion of specific tasks inherent in the fulfillment of the Company’s performance obligation(s). The schedules for such billings usually do not precisely match the schedule on which costs are incurred. As a result, contract revenue recognized in the statements of operations can and usually does differ from amounts that can be billed to the customer at any point during the contract. Amounts by which cumulative contract revenue recognized on a contract as of a given date exceeds cumulative billings and unbilled receivables to the customer under the contract are reflected as a current asset in the balance sheets under the caption “Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts.” Amounts by which cumulative billings to the customer under a contract as of a given date exceed cumulative contract revenue recognized are reflected as a current liability in the balance sheets under the caption “Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts.” Conditional retainage represents the portion of the contract price withheld until the work is substantially complete for assurance of the Company’s obligations to complete the job. Retainage for which the Company has an unconditional right to payment that is only subject to the passage of time are classified as contract receivable. Retainage subject to conditions other than the passage of time do not meet the definition of a receivable and are therefore included in contract assets and contract liabilities, as determined on a contract-by-contract basis. Stored materials represent items purchased in advance of its use on contracts and stored on the work sight. Revenues on uninstalled materials are recognized when control is transferred to the customer. Under certain circumstances (e.g., transfer of control occurs significantly before services are provided, the cost of the material is significant), revenue on certain uninstalled third-party materials is recognized when the cost is incurred; however, profit is not recognized until the material is ultimately in the project.

 

The opening and closing balances of contract receivables, contract assets and contract liabilities from contracts with customers are as follows:

 

   Contract Receivables   Contract Assets   Contract Liabilities 
Balance, January 1, 2023  $1,861,425   $2,235,965   $1,109,010 
Balance, June 30, 2023  $2,142,418   $1,283,256   $221,730 

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s uncompleted contracts:

 

   Six months ended 
   June 30, 2023 
     
Costs incurred on uncompleted contracts  $7,191,789 
Estimated gross profit   1,370,544 
    8,562,333 
      
Applicable billings to date   (8,272,190)
   $290,143 

 

   June 30, 2023 
Included in the accompanying balance sheet under the following captions     
      
Contract Assets     
Cost in excess  $511,873 
Unbilled receivable   116,908 
Conditional retainage   534,418 
Total Contract Assets  $1,163,199 
      
Contract liabilities     
Billings in excess   221,730 
Total Contract liabilities  $221,730 

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, net revenue recognized from the Company’s performance obligations satisfied in previous periods was not material. As of June 30, 2023, conditional retainage of 85,410 was considered long-term.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of parts and supplies held for use in the ordinary course of business. Inventory is valued at the net realized value, with cost determined principally on the first-in, first-out method. To the extent that we determine that we are holding excess or obsolete inventory, we write down the value of our inventory to its net realizable value. Such write-downs are reflected in cost of revenue. Where shipping and handling costs on inventory purchases are borne by the Company, these charges are included in inventory and charged to cost of services upon use in the Company’s projects or the providing of services.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost. Any self-constructed property and equipment is recorded at the total cost of the materials plus a standard cost for labor and overhead. Depreciation of property and equipment is determined using the straight-line method for financial statement purposes at rates based on the following estimated useful lives:

 

Office Furniture and Fixtures 3 - 10 years
Machinery and Other Equipment 5 - 10 years
Vehicles 5 years
Leasehold improvements Shorter of lease term or of life of asset

 

Expenditures for major improvements that extend the useful lives of equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”, and subsequent related updates, to revise the accounting for leases. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2022, on a modified retrospective basis.

 

The Company is obligated under non-cancelable operating leases for properties. The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception by assessing whether a contract contains a right to control an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. Once a contract is determined to be a lease, the Company determines if a lease is an operating or financing lease. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities (current and long-term) commencing at January l, 2022. For purposes of calculating operating lease liabilities, lease terms include the option to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise that option and begins when the Company has control and possession of the leased property, which may be before payments are due under the lease.

 

7
 

 

Operating right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of lease payments, discounted using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, over the lease term at the commencement date. The Company continues to account for lease and non-lease components (Such as property taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs) as total lease consideration and therefore classifies common maintenance fees that are included in the monthly payments as lease payments within the lease agreement. The expense for the Company’s leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Leases with terms less than 12 months are not included on the balance sheet.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Management reviews the carrying value of long-lived assets on an ongoing basis. When factors indicate that a long-lived asset may be impaired, management uses an estimate of the undiscounted future cash flows over the remaining life of the asset in measuring whether the long-lived asset’s carrying value is recoverable. If such an analysis indicates that impairment has in fact occurred, the book value of the long-lived asset is written down to its fair value, which is estimated using discounted future cash flows. Management has concluded that no impairment adjustments were required during the six months ended June 30, 2023.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company, with the consent of its stockholders, has elected under the Internal Revenue Code and Pennsylvania and other states’ tax law to be an S corporation. In lieu of corporation income taxes, the stockholders of an S corporation are taxed on their proportionate share of the Company’s taxable income. Therefore, no provision or liability for income taxes has been included in these financial statements.

 

Advertising

 

The Company expenses advertising and promotion costs as incurred. Total advertising and promotion costs amounted to $594 and $3,701 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively.

 

Presentation of Sales Tax Collected and Remitted

 

Various states the Company does business in impose sales tax at varying rates on the Company’s sales to non-exempt customers. The Company collects sales tax from customers and remits the entire amount to the applicable states. The Company’s accounting policy is to exclude the tax collected and remitted to the states from revenue and cost of contracts.

 

New Accounting Pronouncement

 

ASU No. 2016-13

 

In June 2016 the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13. Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which makes significant changes to the accounting for credit losses on financial assets and disclosures about them. The guidance applies to a wide variety of financial assets including trade receivables and contract assets and is effective for the Company for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2022, and interim periods therein. The new guidance on the current expected credit loss (‘CECL”) impairment model requires an estimate of expected credit losses, measured over the contractual life of an asset, that considers forecasts of future economic conditions in addition to information about past events and current conditions. It requires entities to consider the risk of loss even if it is remote, which may result in the recognition of credit losses on assets that do not have evidence of credit deterioration. Adoption did not have a material impact on financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

NOTE C – CHANGE IN ESTIMATE

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company had an increase in estimated profit on contracts, which resulted in a current period increase in net income of approximately 29,000. The increase would have been reported in the preceding period had the increase in estimated profit been known at that time. Revisions in estimated profits are made in the period in which the circumstances requiring revisions become known.

 

NOTE D – ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

 

Accounts receivables, net consist of the following:

 

   June 30, 2023 
Accounts receivable  $2,152,418 
Allowance for credit losses   (10,000)
   $2,142,418 

 

Accounts receivable include amounts due for services rendered.

 

Allowance for doubtful accounts includes estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make the required payments.

 

NOTE E – INVENTORY.

 

Inventory represents raw materials stored at the Company’s facility for use in current or future projects.

 

The Company does not have any allowance for obsolete inventory as of the balance sheet date.

 

8
 

 

NOTE F – ACCRUED EXPENSES

 

Accrued expenses consist primarily of accrued dividends of $993,500 due to the owner. The Company is an S-Corp and at year-end and profits are distributed to the owners annually.

 

NOTE G - LEASES

 

The Company entered into a contractual arrangement for the right to use facilities. The lease term was four years for the facilities. The lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or restrictive covenants.

 

Operating lease liabilities were $364,222 as of June 30, 2023, with the current portion of $142,323 reported on the balance sheet as “Current maturities of lease liabilities” as of June 30, 2023.

NOTE HRETIREMENT PLAN

 

The Company provides a retirement plan for the benefit of most employees that includes a 401(k) provision which allows employees to contribute and defer taxes on a portion of their compensation. The Company has the option to match employee contributions and/or make additional profit-sharing contributions to the plan. The Company’s matching contributions, which are included in employee benefits in general and administrative expenses, totaled $8,836, and $14,388 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively. The Company did not make any additional profit-sharing contributions to the plan for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023.

 

NOTE I - DEMAND NOTES PAYABLE - BANK

 

The Company has entered into an agreement with a bank whereby it may borrow $1,000,000 on a line of credit. The Company had $0 outstanding balances on this line of credit as of June 30, 2023. Interest is payable at the daily Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield (BSBY) rate plus 3.00%. The line of credit is part of a money management program and includes an overdraft protection plan. Funds are available, through the line of credit, to cover cash payments and any funds drawn will reduce the amount available on the line of credit. The overdraft balance, which is included in the line of credit outstanding balance, was $0 as of June 30, 2023. The line of credit is collateralized by substantially all of the Company’s assets. Additionally, the line of credit agreement includes various general and financial covenants.

 

The Company has entered into an agreement with a bank whereby it may borrow $250,000 on an equipment revolving line of credit. Interest on the line of credit is payable at the daily BSBY rate plus 3.00% on any outstanding balance. Advances on the line of credit are converted to long-term debt with a maximum term of five years and a fixed rate determined at the time of conversion. The Company had no outstanding balance on the line of credit as of June 30, 2023

 

NOTE J - CONTINGENCIES

 

Partially Self-Insured Medical Benefit

 

The Company partially self-insures the medical benefits for its employees. The Company is responsible for the payment of claims up to $35,000 a year per employee and an aggregate amount of $256,262 for the Company. A major medical policy is in place to cover claims in excess of the amounts stated above. At June 30, 2023, the Company did not have any self-insurance accruals for claims incurred but not paid.

 

The measurement of these costs requires judgments about the present and expected level of cost per claim. The Company accounts for these costs by reviewing the claims outstanding and projecting the payments.

 

The Company believes the use of this method provides a consistent and effective way to measure this accrual. However, the use of any estimation technique is inherently sensitive given the claims involved and the length of time that there often is until the ultimate cost is known. Changes in healthcare costs and other factors can materially affect the estimates for this liability.

 

NOTE K - CONCENTRATIONS AND CASH AND CREDIT RISKS

 

At times during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company’s cash balances may have exceeded federally insured limits.

 

At June 30, 2023, approximately 20% of the Company’s accounts receivable were from one customer.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, approximately 29.5% of the Company’s revenues were from one customer. 
 

NOTE L - PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM LOAN FORGIVENESS

 

As a result of the global pandemic that has previously negatively impacted the Company in 2021, the Company received its second forgivable unsecured Small Business Administration loan under the Paycheck Protection Program to help cover payroll, rent, utility, and other eligible expenses. The loan is eligible for full or partial forgiveness if the Company incurs sufficient eligible expenses during the covered period and meets certain other criteria. The loan is secured, bears interest at a rate of 1%, and has a five-year term. The loan is guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA).

 

The Company received the loan in the amount of $636,207 in March 2021. The covered period started in March 2021 and ended in September 2021. The Company met the criteria, submitted the loan forgiveness application to the SBA, and received full forgiveness in October 2021. PPP loans that were forgiven are subject to audit by Small Business Administration for six years.

Exhibit 99.3

 

Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information

 

The following unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet of Cemtrex, Inc. (“the Company”) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, is presented as if the acquisition of Heisey Mechanical, Ltd. (“Heisey”) referred to herein as the “Acquisition” had occurred on September 30, 2021. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations for the year ended September 30, 2022, and the subsequent nine months ended June 30, 2023, is presented as if the Acquisition had occurred on September 30, 2021.

 

The accompanying unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements are based on the historical financial statements of the Company after giving pro forma effect to the Company’s acquisition of Heisey and its related assets, liabilities and personnel and gives effect to: (i) the liability taken to fund consideration and (ii) the acquisition of Heisey. Heisey operations and related financial information contained throughout the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements herein constitute predominantly all of the historical audited annual and unaudited interim financial statements Heisey. The consideration and the acquisition of Heisey are hereby referred to as the “Transaction”.

 

The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements have been derived from and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s historical audited consolidated financial statements and historical unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, and Heisey historical audited and interim unaudited financial statements, including the notes thereto. The financial statements of the Company for the year ended September 30, 2022, are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 28, 2022. The statement of operations of Heisey for the twelve months ended September 30, 2022, was derived from Heisey historical audited consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2022, as well as the unaudited interim consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2021, and December 31, 2022, which are included in exhibit 99.1 and exhibit 99.2 herein. Note 2 describes the method of calculating the statement of operations of Heisey for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, which is within 93 days of the Company’s fiscal year ended September 30, 2022, as required by Rule 11-02(c)(3) of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act of 1933.

 

The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements include unaudited pro forma adjustments that are factually supportable and directly attributed to the Acquisition. The unaudited pro forma adjustments are expected to have a continuing impact on the consolidated results. Assumptions underlying the pro forma adjustments are described in the accompanying notes, which should be read in conjunction with the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements.

 

The unaudited pro forma adjustments are based upon available information and certain assumptions that the Company’s management believe are reasonable. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements are presented for informational purposes only and are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s financial position or results of operations that would have occurred had the events been consummated as of the dates indicated. In addition, the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s future operating results.

 

The Company’s management expects that the strategic and financial benefits of the acquisition of Heisey will result in certain cost saving opportunities, which have not been reflected in the accompanying unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements.

 

The acquisition of Heisey will be accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 805, Business Combinations, which will establish a new basis of accounting for all identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at fair value as of the date control is obtained. Accordingly, the consideration transferred will be allocated to the underlying net assets in proportion to their respective fair values. The fair value of Heisey’s identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed are based on a preliminary estimate of fair value. Any excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the net assets acquired will be recorded as goodwill. The allocation of the purchase price to acquired assets and assumed liabilities based on their underlying fair values requires the extensive use of significant estimates and the Company’s judgment. The Company’s management believes the fair values recognized for the acquired assets and assumed liabilities are based on reasonable estimates and assumptions based on information currently available. As more fully described in the notes to the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements, a preliminary allocation of the purchase price has been made (i) to recognize the value of identifiable fixed assets at fair value in the aggregate amount of approximately $1,741,500 and (ii) establish contract assets and liabilities at fair value in the aggregate amount of $(8,309). All other assets acquired, and liabilities assumed have been recognized at their respective book values, which the Company’s management believes materially approximate their respective fair values. The excess of estimated purchase price over the estimated fair value of the net assets acquired of $355,090 has been preliminarily allocated to goodwill. The allocation of purchase price is preliminary at this time and will remain as such until the Company completes valuations and other studies to finalize the valuation of the net assets acquired. The final allocation of the purchase price is dependent on a number of factors, including the final valuation of the fair value of all tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the closing date of the acquisition of Heisey when additional information will be available. Such final adjustments, including changes to depreciable tangible and amortizable intangible assets, may be material.

 

The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements should be read in conjunction with the following information:
