SPECIAL NOTE ON FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Quarterly Report”) contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve substantial risks and uncertainties including particularly statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, business strategy, prospective products and services, timing and likelihood of success, plans and objectives of management for future operations, and future results of current and anticipated products and services. These statements involve uncertainties, such as known and unknown risks, and are dependent on other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from the future results, performance or achievements we express or imply. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “could,” “intend,” “target,” “project,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions described under the sections in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 entitled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made in this Form 10-Q and in other documents we file from time to time with the SEC that disclose risks and uncertainties that may affect our business. The forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q do not reflect the potential impact of any divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, or other business combinations that had not been completed as of the date of this filing.  Because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified and some of which are beyond our control, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

REKOR SYSTEMS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
NOTE 1 – GENERAL, BASIS OF PRESENTATION, AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Rekor Systems, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial statements. Accordingly, they do not contain all information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for annual financial statements. In the opinion of management, these unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, which include normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial position as of March 31, 2020, the unaudited condensed consolidated results of operations, consolidated statements of shareholders’ deficit and unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.
 
The financial data and other information disclosed in the notes to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements related to these periods are unaudited. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020.
 
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
Dollar amounts, except per share data, in the notes to these financial statements are rounded to the closest $1,000.
 
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. Amounts for the first quarter of 2020 and for the period ending December 31, 2019, have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Due to the held for sale classification of Global and AOC Key Solutions, as well as, the discontinuance of all professional services activities, certain amounts have been reclassified in order to conform to the current period presentation.
 
Rekor Systems, Inc. (the “Company” or “Rekor”), was formed in February 2017. The Company is a leader in the field of vehicle identification and management systems driven by advances in artificial intelligence ("AI"). In development for over five years using AI processes, including deep machine learning algorithms, the Company’s core software enables the creation of more powerful and capable vehicle recognition systems that can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of traditional vehicle recognition systems. The software enables a wider field of view, greater light sensitivity, recognitions at faster speeds and the ability to identify the color, make and type of a vehicle as well as direction of travel. These capabilities are particularly useful in solving a wide variety of real-world roadway and vehicle related challenges. In addition, the reductions in cost have opened up a number of new uses for vehicle recognition technology that were not previously cost effective. 
 
In March 2019, Rekor acquired certain assets and certain liabilities of OpenALPR Technology, Inc. (such assets and liabilities being referred to herein as “OpenALPR Technology”) through its subsidiary, OpenALPR Software Solutions, LLC (“OpenALPR”). The financial information in this Quarterly Report only includes OpenALPR in the results of operations beginning as of March 12, 2019.

REKOR SYSTEMS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
During the third quarter of 2019, the Company began to separately report the results of Global Technical Services, Inc. and Global Contract Professionals, Inc. (together “Global”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries, including substantially all of the assets and liabilities comprising Global, as operations held for sale. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company began to separately report the results of AOC Key Solutions, Inc. (“AOC Key Solutions”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, including substantially all of the assets and liabilities comprising AOC Key Solutions, as operations held for sale. Additionally, during the first quarter of 2020, in connection with the Company’s plan to sell AOC Key Solutions and Global, the Company determined that all of the Professionals Services segment should be classified as held for sale or discontinued operations. The Company reported Firestorm Solutions, LLC (“Firestorm Solutions”) and Firestorm Franchising, LLC (“Firestorm Franchising” and together with Firestorm Solutions, “Firestorm”) as part of held for sale and discontinued operations. This strategic shift by the Company was done to focus on its technology offerings and products.
 
The Company is reporting the operating results and cash flows of Global, AOC Key Solutions and Firestorm as held for sale and discontinued operations, and thus they have been excluded from continuing operations for all periods presented. Prior to the Company’s decision to sell Global and AOC Key Solutions, the operating results for these subsidiaries were presented in the Professional Services segment. Prior to the Company’s decision to discontinue the operations of its Professional Services segment, the operating results of Firestorm were presented in the Professional Services segment. The assets and liabilities of Global, AOC Key Solutions and Firestorm are presented as current and long-term assets and liabilities held for sale and discontinued operations in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets and its results are presented as loss from held for sale and discontinued operations in the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations.
 
On April 2, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with the members of AOC Key Solutions’ management to sell AOC Key Solutions. This transaction closed on April 2, 2020, subsequent to the execution of the sales agreement and is further discussed in the Company’s Subsequent Event Note 13.
 
Going Concern Assessment
 
For all annual and interim periods, management will assess going concern uncertainty in the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements to determine whether there is sufficient cash on hand and working capital, including available borrowings on loans, to operate for a period of at least one year from the date the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are issued or available to be issued, which is referred to as the “look-forward period”, as defined in U.S. GAAP. As part of this assessment, based on conditions that are known and reasonably knowable to management, management will consider various scenarios, forecasts, projections, estimates and will make certain key assumptions. These assumptions including among other factors, the expected timing and nature of the Company’s programs and projected cash expenditures, its ability to delay or curtail these expenditures or programs and its ability to raise additional capital, if necessary, to the extent management has the proper authority to execute them and considers it probable that those implementations can be achieved within the look-forward period.
 
The Company has generated losses since its inception in February 2017 and has relied on cash on hand, external bank lines of credit, the sale of a note, proceeds from the sale of common stock, debt financings and a public offering of its common stock to support cashflow from operations. The Company attributes losses to merger and acquisition costs, public company corporate overhead and non-capital expenditures. As of and for the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company had a net loss from continuing operations of $3,774,000 and a working capital deficit of $1,179,000. The Company's net cash position was decreased by $34,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 due to the net loss from operations, offset by the net proceeds of $2,169,000 from the At-the-Market Agreement and the net proceeds from the issuance of common stock in connection with exercise of warrants and stock options of $454,000.

Management believes that based on relevant conditions and events that are known and reasonably knowable, its current forecasts and projections, for one year from the date of the filing of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, indicate the Company’s ability to continue operations as a going concern for that one-year period. The Company is actively monitoring its operations, the cash on hand and working capital. Additionally, as of March 31, 2020, the Company has access to raise up to $9,490,000 through the At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”). As of April 30, 2020, the Company has $9,490,000 available for sale under the Sales Agreement. The Company will continue to raise capital through the Sales Agreement to help fund operations. Should access to those funds be unavailable, the Company will need to seek out additional sources of funding. Furthermore, the Company has contingency plans to reduce or defer expenses and cash outlays should operations weaken in the look-forward period or additional financing, if needed, is not available.
 
The Company's ability to generate positive operating results and complete the execution of its business strategy will depend on (i) its ability to maintain timely collections from existing customers, as well as continue the growth of its technology business, (ii) timely completion of the disposition of the businesses in its Professional Services Segment, (iii) the continued performance of its contractors, subcontractors and vendors, (iv) its ability to maintain and build good relationships with its lenders and financial intermediaries, (v) its ability to meet debt covenants or obtain waivers in case of noncompliance and (vi) the stabilization of the world economy and global financial markets. To the extent that events outside of the Company's control have a significant negative impact on economic and/or market conditions, they could affect payments from customers, services and supplies from vendors, its ability to continue to secure new business, raise capital, complete the sale of its assets held for sale in a timely fashion and otherwise, depending on the severity of such impact, materially adversely affect its operating results.
 
The Company’s operations have been affected by the recent and ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020. The impact includes the need for employees to work remotely, restrictions on travel affecting the Company’s ability to attend meetings, conferences, consultations and installations and otherwise provide and market its products and services, and disruptions to its customers' operations which may affect its revenues. The Company also expects to benefit from the availability of financing under the CARES Act (see Note 13). The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible effects may include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s customers and revenue, absenteeism in the Company’s labor workforce, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and a decline in value of assets held by the Company.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the extensive use of management's estimates. Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses. Actual amounts may differ from these estimates. On an on-going basis, the Company evaluates its estimates, including those related to collectability of accounts receivable, fair value of debt and equity instruments and income taxes. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions. 
 
 
Goodwill and Intangible Assets
 
Goodwill represents the excess of the fair value of consideration transferred in a business combination over the fair value of tangible and intangible assets acquired, net of the fair value of liabilities assumed. Goodwill is tested for impairment within one year of acquisitions or annually as of October 1, and whenever indicators of impairment exist. In testing goodwill for impairment, the Company may elect to utilize a qualitative assessment to evaluate whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If the Company’s qualitative assessment indicates that goodwill impairment is more likely than not, the Company will perform a two-step impairment test. The Company will test goodwill for impairment under the two-step impairment test by first comparing the book value of net assets to the fair value of the reporting units. If the fair value is determined to be less than the book value or qualitative factors indicate that it is more likely than not that goodwill is impaired, a second step is performed to compute the amount of impairment as the difference between the estimated fair value of goodwill and the carrying value. The Company estimates the fair value of the reporting units using discounted cash flows. Forecasts of future cash flows are based on the Company’s best estimate of future net sales and operating expenses, based primarily on expected growth and general economic conditions.

Identifiable intangible assets are initially valued at fair value using generally accepted valuation methods appropriate for the type of intangible asset. Identifiable intangible assets with definite lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives and are reviewed for impairment if indicators of impairment arise. Except for goodwill, the Company does not have any intangible assets with indefinite useful lives.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The carrying amounts reported in the condensed consolidated balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and cash equivalents, inventory, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 because of the relatively short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The carrying amount reported for long-term debt approximates fair value as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 given management’s evaluation of the instrument’s current rate compared to market rates of interest and other factors.
 
The determination of fair value is based upon the fair value framework established by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”). Fair value is defined as the exit price, or the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. The guidance establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
 
Level 1  Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
Level 2  Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
 
Level 3  Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
 
Assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurements. Changes in the observability of valuation inputs may result in a reclassification of levels for certain securities within the fair value hierarchy.
 
The Company’s goodwill and other intangible assets are measured at fair value at the time of acquisition and analyzed on a recurring and non-recurring basis for impairment, respectively, using Level 2 and Level 3 inputs.
 
The Company has concluded that its Series A Preferred Stock is a Level 3 financial instrument and that the fair value approximates the carrying value, which includes the accretion of the discounted interest component through March 31, 2020. There were no changes in levels during the three months ended March 31, 2020.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company derives its revenues substantially from license and subscription fees for software and related products and services.
 
Revenue is recognized upon transfer of control of promised products and services to the Company’s customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products and services. If the consideration promised in the contract includes a variable amount, for example maintenance fees, the Company includes an estimate of the amount it expects to receive for the total transaction price, if it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur.

The Company determines the amount of revenue to be recognized through application of the following steps:
 
Identification of the contract, or contracts, with a customer
 
Identification of the performance obligations in the contract
 
Determination of the transaction price
 
Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract
 
Recognition of revenue when, or as, performance obligations are satisfied

Revenues
 
The revenues for technology products and services are from fees that provide customers with software licenses and related support and service fees for various public safety services.
 
In March 2019, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of a software development company, OpenALPR Technologies, Inc. The software acquired from this acquisition and subsequently developed by the Company have provided the basis for the Company’s licensing and subscription revenue. Licensing and subscription services include those products which operate in many installation locations with a high accuracy rate, which include a web server, a self-managed database, and access to a powerful, cross-platform application programming interface. The Company's proprietary software employs a convolutional neural network architecture to classify images and features that include seamless video analysis and data analytics. Current customers include law enforcement agencies, highway authorities, parking system operators, private security companies, and wholesale and retail operations supporting logistics and customer loyalty programs. During the second quarter of 2019, the Company changed its method of selling its software from perpetual software licenses, with associated maintenance services, to service subscriptions of limited duration. These subscriptions give the customer a license to use the latest version of the Company's software only during the term of the subscription. Revenue is generally recognized ratably over the contract term. This change is expected to impact the Company's revenue in the short term. However, the amount of contract revenue received over the long-term is expected to be relatively consistent. The Company’s subscription services arrangements are non-cancelable and do not contain refund-type provisions. Revenue is recognized ratably over the licensing or subscription term.
 
Automated traffic safety enforcement revenues reflect arrangements to provide traffic safety systems to a number of municipalities in North America. These systems include hardware that identifies red light and school safety zone traffic violations and software that captures and records forensic images, analyses the images to provide data and supports citation management services. The Company also provides an enterprise parking enforcement solution that the Company licenses to parking management companies and municipalities.  Revenue is recognized monthly based on the number of camera systems that are operated, or the number of citations issued by the relevant municipality.

For those contracts that have multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the total transaction price to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price, which is determined based on the Company’s overall pricing objectives, taking into consideration market conditions and other factors.
 
  A performance obligation is a promise in a contract with a customer to transfer services that are distinct. The performance obligations that are not yet satisfied or partially satisfied are performance obligations that are expected to be recognized as revenue in the future for a contract with a customer which was executed as of a particular date. At March 31, 2020, the Company had approximately $13,831,000 of remaining performance obligations not yet satisfied or partially satisfied. The Company expects to recognize approximately 34% of this amount over the succeeding twelve months, and the remainder is expected to be recognized over the next two to four years thereafter.
 
The timing of revenue recognition, billings and cash collections results in billed accounts receivable, unbilled accounts receivables, and contract liabilities on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. Billed and unbilled accounts receivable are presented as part of accounts receivable, net, on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. When billings occurs after services have been provided, such unbilled amounts will generally be billed and collected within 60 to 120 days but typically no longer than over the next twelve months. Unbilled accounts receivables of $247,000 and $440,000 were included in accounts receivable, net, in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Additionally, unbilled accounts receivables of $1,751,000 and $346,000 were included in current assets held for sale and discontinued operations in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.
 
When the Company advance bills clients prior to providing services, generally such amounts will be earned and recognized in revenue within the next six months to five years, depending on the subscription or licensing period. These assets and liabilities are reported on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period. Changes in the contract asset and liability balances during the three months ended March 31, 2020 were not materially impacted by any other factors. Contract liabilities from the period ended March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were $1,574,000 and $1,524,000, respectively. All contract liabilities as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were attributable to continued operations. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 $243,000 of the contract liabilities balance as of December 31, 2019 were recognized as revenue.

Segment Reporting
 
The FASB ASC Topic 280, Segment Reporting, requires that an enterprise report selected information about reportable segments in its financial reports issued to its stockholders. In 2019, the Company changed its operating and reportable segments from one segment to two segments: the Technology Segment and the Professional Services Segment. The two segments reflected the Company’s separate focus on technology products and services versus professional services.
 
As part of a strategic shift by the Company, all operations related to the Professional Services segment have been classified as held or sale and discontinued as of 2020. As of January 1, 2020, the Company had one reportable segment. Continuing operations are all operations that previously were reported as part of the Technology Segment.
  
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash and Cash Equivalents 
 
The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with the maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
 
Cash subject to contractual restrictions and not readily available for use is classified as restricted cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s restricted cash balances are primarily made up of cash collected on behalf of certain client jurisdictions. Restricted cash and cash equivalents for these client jurisdictions as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were $415,000 and $461,000, respectively, and correspond to equal amounts of related accounts payable and are presented as part of accounts payable and accrued expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. 
 
Concentrations of Credit Risk
 
The Company places its temporary cash investments with higher rated quality financial institutions located in the United States (“U.S.”). As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had deposits from continuing operations totaling $1,502,000 and $1,536,000, respectively, in one U.S. financial institution that was federally insured up to $250,000 per account.
 
The Company has a market concentration of revenue and accounts receivable from continuing operations related to its customer base.
 
Company A accounted for 17% and less than 10% of the Company’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
 
Company B accounted for 13% and 27% of the Company’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
 
Company C accounted for less than 10% and 12% of the Company’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
 
As of March 31, 2020, accounts receivable from Company A totaled $140,000 or 19% of the unaudited condensed consolidated accounts receivable balance. As of December 31, 2019, Company A accounted for $198,000 or 26% of the unaudited condensed consolidated accounts receivable balance.
 
No other single customer accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated revenue for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 or unaudited condensed consolidated accounts receivable balance as of March 31, 2020.

Additional significant accounting policies of the Company are also described in Note 1 of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. 
 
New Accounting Pronouncements Effective in the Three Months ended March 31, 2020
 
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (“ASU 2018-13”). This ASU modifies the disclosure requirements for fair value measurements by removing, modifying or adding certain disclosures. ASU 2018-13 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The amendments on changes in unrealized gains and losses, the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty should be applied prospectively for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the initial fiscal year of adoption. All other amendments should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented upon their effective date. The Company adopted ASU 2018-13 on January 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 did not have a material impact on the Company’s disclosures.
 
The Company does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards could have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements. As new accounting pronouncements are issued, the Company will adopt those that are applicable under the circumstances.
 
NOTE 2 - ACQUISITIONS
 
OpenALPR Technology Acquisition
 
On March 12, 2019, the Company completed the acquisition of certain assets and assumed certain liabilities of OpenALPR Technology, Inc. (the “OpenALPR Technology Acquisition”). Consideration paid as part of the OpenALPR Technology Acquisition was: $7,000,000 in cash, subject to adjustment after closing; 600,000 shares of Rekor common stock, valued at $397,000; and $5,000,000 of the 2019 Promissory Notes principal amount, together with an accompanying warrant to purchase 625,000 shares of Rekor common stock, exercisable over a period of five years, at an exercise price of $0.74 per share, valued at $208,000.
 
The purchase price allocation to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on fair values as of the acquisition date. Since the OpenALPR Technology Acquisition occurred on March 12, 2019, the results of operations including OpenALPR Technology Acquisition from the date of acquisition have been included in the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

NOTE 3 – HELD FOR SALE AND DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
 
In September 2019 and March 2020, the Company determined that Global and AOC Key Solutions, respectively, met the criteria for held for sale accounting because it expects to complete the sale of Global and AOC Key Solutions during the next 12 months. Historically, Global and AOC Key Solutions have been presented as part of the Professional Services Segment. On April 2, 2020, AOC Key Solutions was sold pursuant to a purchase and sale agreement as further detailed in Note 13.
 
During the first quarter of 2020, in connection with the Company’s plan to sell AOC Key Solutions and Global, the Company determined that all of the historical Professionals Services Segment, not subject to sale, should be classified as discontinued operations. As part of this plan Firestorm has also been classified as discontinued operations and presented as part of held for sale and discontinued operations. Previously, Firestorm was not included as part of held or sale and discontinued operations as it did not meet the threshold of being considered a strategic shift.
 
The pending dispositions are a result of the Company’s strategic decision to concentrate resources on the development of its Technology Segment and will result in material changes in the Company's operations and financial results. As a consequence, the Company is reporting the operating results and cash flows of Global, AOC Key Solutions and Firestorm as held for sale and discontinued operations, including for all prior periods reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and these notes.
 
Pursuant to ASC Topic 205-20, Presentation of Financial Statements - Discontinued Operations, the results of operations from Global, AOC Key Solutions and Firestorm for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 have been classified as held for sale and discontinued operations and presented as part of loss from held for sale and discontinued operations in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations presented herein. The assets and liabilities also have been classified as held for sale and discontinued operations under the line captions of current and long term assets held for sale and discontinued operations and current and long term liabilities held for sale and discontinued operations in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

NOTE 7 – DEBT
 
Long-Term Debt
 
On January 25, 2017, pursuant to the terms of its acquisition of Firestorm, the Company issued $1,000,000 in the aggregate form of four unsecured, subordinated promissory notes with interest payable over five years. The principal amount of one of the notes payable is $500,000 payable at an interest rate of 2% and the remaining three notes are evenly divided over the remaining $500,000 and payable at an interest rate of 7%. The notes mature on January 25, 2022. The aggregate balance of these notes payable was $966,000 and $961,000, net of unamortized interest, as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, to reflect the amortized fair value of the notes issued due to the difference in interest rates of $34,000 and $39,000, respectively.
 
On April 3, 2018, the Company entered into a transaction pursuant to which an institutional investor (the “2018 Lender”) loaned $2,000,000 to the Company (the “2018 Promissory Note”). On March 12, 2019, the $2,000,000 balance due on the 2018 Promissory Note was retired in its entirety in exchange for an equivalent principal amount of the 2019 Promissory Notes (see below). In addition, Rekor paid to the 2018 Lender $1,050,000 of consideration for the re-acquisition by the Company of the Lender’s Participation and $75,000 of interest due through May 1, 2019. All amounts paid were obtained from the proceeds of the 2019 Promissory Notes. The 2018 Lender consideration of $1,050,000 for the Lender’s Participation and unamortized financing costs of $63,000 are recorded as costs in connection with the loss on the extinguishment of debt of $1,113,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
 
2019 Promissory Notes
 
On March 12, 2019, the Company entered into a note purchase agreement pursuant to which investors, including OpenALPR Technology, Inc. (the “2019 Lenders”) loaned $20,000,000 to the Company (the “2019 Promissory Notes”) and the Company issued to the 2019 Lenders warrants to purchase 2,500,000 shares of Rekor common stock (the “March 2019 Warrants”). The loan bears interest at 16% per annum, of which at least 10% per annum is required to be paid in cash. Any remaining interest accrues to be paid at maturity or earlier redemption. The notes also require a $1,000,000 exit fee due at maturity, or a premium if paid before the maturity date, and compliance with affirmative, negative and financial covenants, including a fixed charge coverage ratio, minimum liquidity and maximum capital expenditures. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had a waiver in place for the fixed charge coverage ratio covenant related to this note until May 31, 2020. Transaction costs included $403,000 for a work fee payable over 10 months, $290,000 in legal fees and a $200,000 closing fee. The loan is secured by a security interest in substantially all of the assets of Rekor. The March 2019 Warrants are exercisable over a period of five years, at an exercise price of $0.74 per share, and were valued at $706,000, at the time of issuance. The warrants were exercisable commencing March 12, 2019 and expire on March 12, 2024.
 
As of the anniversary date of the commencement of the 2019 Promissory Notes $1,283,000 of the paid-in kind interest had not been paid by the Company and per the purchase agreement has been added to the principal balance of the 2019 Promissory Notes as of March 31, 2020.

The Company incurred $100,000 in transaction costs related to the First Amendment to Note Purchase Agreement, these costs are financing costs and deferred over the remaining life of the loan.

As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, there were approximately $2,070,000 and $2,714,000 of receivables that are subject to collateral as part of this agreement. The receivables held as collateral are presented as part of current assets held for sale and discontinued operations on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.
 
On August 9, 2019, Global, entered an agreement with an unrelated third party, LSQ, pursuant to which Global sells its accounts receivable to LSQ and LSQ advances Global 90% of the value of the receivable. Global can advance up to $10,000,000 at one time. The term of the agreement is for 12 months and automatically renews for additional 12-month periods.

NOTE 8 – INCOME TAXES
 
The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between the financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. In determining the need for a valuation allowance, the Company reviewed both positive and negative evidence pursuant to the requirements of ASC Topic 740, including current and historical results of operations, future income projections and the overall prospects of the Company’s business.
 
The Company’s income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $7,000 and $12,000, respectively. The Company established a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets during 2017 and has continued to maintain a full valuation allowance, outside of the deferred tax liability related to the indefinite lived intangible, through the three months ended March 31, 2020.
 
The Company files income tax returns in the United States and in various states. No U.S. Federal, state or foreign income tax audits were in process as of March 31, 2020.
 
Management has evaluated the recoverability of the net deferred income tax assets and the level of the valuation allowance required with respect to such net deferred income tax assets. After considering all available facts, the Company fully reserved for its net deferred tax assets, outside of the deferred tax liability related to the indefinite lived intangible, because management believes that it is more-likely-than-not that their benefits will not be realized in future periods. The Company will continue to evaluate its deferred tax assets to determine whether any changes in circumstances could affect the realization of their future benefit. If it is determined in future periods that portions of the Company’s net deferred income tax assets satisfy the realization standard, the valuation allowance will be reduced accordingly.
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2020 the Company did not record any interest or penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits. It is the Company’s policy to record interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as part of income tax expense. The 2016 through 2018 tax years remain subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service.
 
NOTE 9 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
  
On August 19, 2019, the Company filed suit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against three former executives of the Company and Firestorm (the “Firestorm Principals”)—Rekor Systems, Inc. v. Suzanne Loughlin, et al., Case no. 1:19-cv-07767-VEC.  The Complaint alleges that the Firestorm Principals fraudulently induced the execution of the Membership Interest Purchase Agreement wherein Firestorm was acquired by the Company.  The Complaint requests equitable rescission of that transaction, or, alternatively, monetary damages.
 
Following an initial amended complaint, answer and counterclaims, and defendants’ motion for judgment on the pleadings, on January 30, 2020, the Company filed a Second Amended Complaint, which the Firestorm Principals answered together with counterclaims on February 28, 2020.  Thereafter, on March 30, 2020, the Company moved to dismiss certain counterclaims against certain executives named as counterclaim-defendants, which resulted in the Firestorm Principals voluntarily dismissing those counterclaims against those parties.  The Company thereafter filed its response and affirmative defenses to the Counterclaims on April 22, 2020.  On April 27, 2020, the Firestorm Principals filed a Motion for Partial Judgment on the Pleadings, which the Company will be opposing.
 
The Company intends to continue vigorously litigating its claims against the Firestorm Principals and believes that the Firestorm Principals’ remaining counterclaims are without merit.

Vigilant Solutions, LLC, a subsidiary of Motorola Solutions, Inc., filed a complaint on February 21, 2020 against the Company and certain of its subsidiaries in the US District Court for the District of Maryland. The complaint alleges that certain of the Company’s products violate a patent held by Vigilant. The Company has retained counsel to investigate the claims made in the complaint and our investigation into these matters is ongoing. Nevertheless, based on a review of the complaint, the Company believes that it has substantial defenses to the allegations contained in the complaint and that the validity of the patent underlying the complaint is subject to challenge. The Company intends to vigorously defend the allegations of the Vigilant complaint.
 
On January 31, 2020, the Company wholly owned subsidiary, OpenALPR filed a complaint in the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against a former customer, Plate Capture Solutions, Inc. (“PCS”) for breach of software license agreements pursuant to which software to was licensed to PCS. On February 19, 2020 PCS filed an answer, counterclaim and joinder in the case, among other things, seeking to join the Company as a party to the litigation and making counterclaims for defamation, fraud and intentional interference with existing and future business relationships. The Company believes that it has substantial defenses to the counterclaims and intend to vigorously defend the allegations of the counterclaims.
 
 In addition, from time to time, the Company is named as a party to various other lawsuits, claims and other legal and regulatory proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of the Company’s business. These actions typically seek, among other things, compensation for alleged personal injury, breach of contract, property damage, punitive damages, civil penalties or other losses, or injunctive or declaratory relief. With respect to such lawsuits, claims and proceedings, the Company accrues reserves when a loss is probable, and the amount of such loss can be reasonably estimated. It is the opinion of the Company’s management that the outcome of these proceedings, individually and collectively, will not be material to the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as a whole.
 
NOTE 10 – STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT
 
Common Stock
 
The Company has adopted and approved an amendment to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 30,000,000 to 100,000,000, $0.0001 par value, which was effective March 18, 2020. The rights and privileges terms of the additional authorized shares of common stock will be identical to those of the currently outstanding shares of common stock. However, because the holders of common stock do not have preemptive rights to purchase or subscribe for any new issuances of common stock, the subsequent potential issuance of additional shares of common stock will reduce the current stockholders’ percentage ownership interest in the total outstanding shares of common stock. The Amendment and the creation of additional shares of authorized common stock will not alter current stockholders’ relative rights and limitations. As of March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2019, the issued and outstanding common shares of Rekor were 22,768,757 and 21,595,653, respectively.

In August 2017, the Company approved and adopted the 2017 Equity Award Plan (the “2017 Plan”) which replaced the 2016 Equity Award Plan (the “2016 Plan”). The 2017 Plan permits the granting of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted and unrestricted stock awards, phantom stock, performance awards and other stock-based awards for the purpose of attracting and retaining quality employees, directors and consultants. Maximum awards available under the 2017 Plan were initially set at 3,000,000 shares.
 
Stock compensation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was $171,000 and $63,000, respectively, and is presented as part of general and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
 
Stock Options
 
Stock options granted under the 2017 Plan may be either incentive stock options (“ISOs”) or non-qualified stock options (“NSOs”). ISOs may be granted to employees and NSOs may be granted to employees, directors, or consultants. Stock options are granted at exercise prices as determined by the Board of Directors. The vesting period is generally three to four years with a contractual term of ten years.
 
The 2017 Plan is administered by the Administrator, which is currently the Board of Directors of the Company. The Administrator has the exclusive authority, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the 2017 Plan, to determine all matters relating to awards under the 2017 Plan, including the selection of individuals to be granted an award, the type of award, the number of shares of Rekor common stock subject to an award, and all terms, conditions, restrictions and limitations, if any, including, without limitation, vesting, acceleration of vesting, exercisability, termination, substitution, cancellation, forfeiture, or repurchase of an award and the terms of any instrument that evidences the award.
 
When making an award under the 2017 Plan, the Administrator may designate the award as “qualified performance-based compensation,” which means that performance criteria must be satisfied in order for an employee to be paid the award. Qualified performance-based compensation may be made in the form of restricted common stock, restricted stock units, common stock options, performance shares, performance units or other stock equivalents. The 2017 Plan includes the performance criteria the Administrator has adopted, subject to stockholder approval, for a “qualified performance-based compensation” award.

General
 
Overview
 
      We are a leader in the field of vehicle identification and management systems driven by leading edge advances in artificial intelligence ("AI"). In development for over five years using AI processes, including machine learning algorithms, our core software enables the creation of more powerful and capable vehicle recognition systems that can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of traditional vehicle recognition systems. The software enables a wider field of view, greater light sensitivity, recognitions at faster speeds and higher accuracy rates, in addition to the ability to identify the color, make and type of a vehicle and its direction of travel. These capabilities are particularly useful in solving a wide variety of real-world roadway and vehicle related challenges. In addition, the reductions in cost have opened up a number of new uses for vehicle recognition technology that were not previously cost effective. We currently provide products and services for governmental organizations, for large and small businesses and for individuals throughout the world. Customers are currently using our products or services in over 70 countries, with offerings for smart cities, public safety, security, transportation, parking and logistics.
 
As part of the development of a new line of products for the public safety and security markets, we acquired industry leading vehicle recognition software in March 2019. In connection with this acquisition, we determined that our resources are best concentrated on vehicle recognition products and services and have reorganized and retooled our product development, business development and administrative resources, with increasing emphasis on the technology area. Our Board of Directors has also authorized management to explore opportunities for the sale of our professional services businesses. On April 2, 2020, we sold our wholly owned subsidiary, AOC Key Solutions, Inc. (“AOC Key Solutions”).
 
Our operations are conducted by our wholly owned subsidiary, Rekor Recognition Systems, Inc. (“Rekor Recognition”). Formerly named Brekford Traffic Safety, Inc., Rekor Recognition has been involved in the public safety business since 1996. In connection with the development of several new public safety products, we determined to acquire substantially all the assets of OpenALPR Technology, Inc. This acquisition (the “OpenALPR Technology Acquisition”), completed in March 2019, transferred vehicle recognition software and associated licenses and proprietary rights to OpenALPR Software Solutions, LLC (“OpenALPR”), a new wholly owned subsidiary of Rekor Recognition. OpenALPR’s vehicle recognition platform, already operating in more than 12,000 cameras in over 70 countries worldwide, has laid the groundwork for the expansion of our product line, enabling multiple deployment mechanisms.
 
Since the OpenALPR Technology Acquisition, we have expanded our vehicle recognition product and service lines into a much broader range of customer segments, starting with public safety. We shifted from a perpetual licensing model to a subscription-based model, rebranded the software suites as “Watchman” and “Car-Check” and released several packaged hardware/software solutions with preloaded versions of each of these vehicle recognition engines. By the end of 2019, we had a portfolio of more than 10 products, permitting us to offer full-scale vehicle recognition services for nearly any large or small public agency, commercial or residential setting.
 
Our software currently has the capability to analyze multi-spectral images and/or video streams produced by nearly any Internet Protocol security camera and concurrently extract license plate data by state from more than 70 countries, in addition to the vehicle’s make, color, type and direction of travel. When combined with speed optimized code, parallel processing capability and best-in-class accessories, such as cameras and communications modules, the software captures license plate data and vehicle characteristics at extremely high vehicle speeds with a high degree of accuracy, even in unusually difficult conditions, such as low lighting, poor weather, extreme camera viewing angles, and obstructions.

Prior to the development of our vehicle identification software, highly accurate results were not available using a typical Internet Protocol camera. We believe that the ability to use less expensive hardware will change the dynamics of the existing public safety market, enabling the creation of increasingly robust networks with cameras at more locations. In addition, we expect the cost advantages and high degree of accuracy to create competitive advantages in tolling systems and logistics operations that currently rely on complex radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. We also expect the lower costs, superior distance and field of view capabilities and the ability to capture additional vehicle information, such as direction, color, make and type of vehicle, to open opportunities in other market segments, such as parking operations, school safety and retail customer loyalty programs; and particularly smart cities and smart roadways. Smart roadway systems, sometimes referred to as smart transport or intelligent transport systems (“ITS”), inclusive of parking management and guidance, passenger information and traffic management systems, can optimize the movement of vehicles to make travel safer and more efficient. These technologies are expected to enable users to be more coordinated, better informed, and make safer and smarter use of transport networks.
 
Our vision is to enable “AI Driven Decisions.” We intend to evolve beyond vehicle recognition for public safety markets into the recognition and analysis of vehicle activities (inclusive of motion and behaviors), to develop systems to identify unsafe situations (e.g. wrong way driving, pedestrian on roadway, etc.) and optimize traffic flows, and to develop numerous other data driven applications around vehicle knowledge.
  
As of 2020 the we have determined that all of the subsidiaries that comprised the Professional Services Segment met the criteria to be presented at either held for sale or discontinued operations. We have provided professional services and staffing solutions to the government contracting and the aerospace and aviation industries. The Professional Services Segment included AOC Key Solutions; Global Technical Services, Inc. (“GTS”); Global Contract Professionals, Inc. (“GCP”, and together with GTS, “Global”); and Firestorm Solutions, LLC (Firestorm Solutions”) and Firestorm Franchising, LLC (“Firestorm Franchising” and together with Firestorm Solutions, “Firestorm”). Currently, as a leading provider of support services to the federal government contracting market, AOC Key Solutions’ primary clients are companies that serve the federal government. We provide professional services that offer scalable and compliant outsourced support for our government contractor clients. We help these clients to win government contracts and capture new businesses. Global provides specialized staffing services, primarily in the aerospace and aviation industries. In connection with our reorganization and focus on technology products and services, we are actively engaged in evaluating, reconfiguring, selling, and discontinuing various business assets or entities in the Professional Services Segment. As part of this process, we discontinued the operations of Firestorm Franchising and have determined to sell Global and AOC Key Solutions. In March 2020, we received a proposal from the current management of AOC Key Solutions to purchase that subsidiary, and consummated the sale of AOC Key Solutions on April 2, 2020.
 
Recent Developments
 
The most significant developments in our company and business since January 1, 2020 are described below:
 
In May 2020, we and the New Rochelle Police Department entered into a five-year, $225,000 subscription agreement for our Watchman vehicle recognition software. The New Rochelle Police Department is the 7th largest in the state of New York and serves more than 78,000 citizens.
 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 around the world in the first quarter of 2020 has caused significant volatility in U.S. and international markets. There is significant uncertainty around the breadth and duration of business disruptions related to COVID-19, as well as its impact on the U.S. and international economies and, as such, we are unable to determine if it will have a material impact to our operations.
 
In response to COVID-19, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act was signed into law. The CARES Act, among other things, provides cash payments to certain individuals and has various programs for businesses. In particular, it includes the Payroll Protection Program which provides forgivable loans to qualified small businesses, primarily to allow these businesses to continue to pay their employees. One of our subsidiaries received $5,005,000 as a result of the Payroll Protection Program.
 
On April 2, 2020, we entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with, AOC Key Solutions, Inc., our wholly owned subsidiary, and PurpleReign, LLC, a Virginia limited liability company owned by the members of AOC Key Solutions’ management, pursuant to which we agreed to sell AOC Key Solutions.

Since January 2020, we have been selected by Brite Computers ("Brite"), LiveView Technologies, ("LiveView"), and Alliance Technology Group ("Alliance") to provide our vehicle recognition systems to their existing customer base. Brite is leader in public safety systems integration and will use us as their sole ALPR solution to their extensive customer base comprised of law enforcement and state and local governments. LiveView is a leader in remote security solutions, which will provide our vehicle recognition systems for deployment within its full security platform. Alliance will offer our vehicle recognition solutions to its customer base both as a standalone solution and as part of an integrated video surveillance system. In addition, we announced that Digifort, a global leader in video surveillance and monitoring, headquartered in Brazil with more than 28,000 customers in 130 countries, will be a premier reseller for Watchman software in Brazil, Latin America, the Pacific Rim and the Middle East.
 
In March 2020, we increased our authorized shares of common stock from 30,000,000 to 100,000,000. The increase in authorized shares was done in order to permit us to raise capital or issue our common stock for other business purposes.
 
In February 2020, the City of Lauderhill, Florida, selected our Rekor Edge vehicle recognition cameras and Watchman software use in its public safety program. As a result, on March 5, 2020 we signed an agreement with the City of Lauderhill for $1.79 million and contract to provide services for a five-year term. The construction phase is in progress as planned.
 
In February 2020, SecurePark Technologies, a leading software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) based parking solutions company, selected our iP360 Parking and Permit Management software as a simple, reliable, and affordable solution for their global clients.
 
In January 2020, we launched our new Watchman Home product which can turn nearly any existing home security camera into a license plate recognition device (without loss of the original security camera functionality) by simply installing the Watchman Home software. Furthermore, Watchman Home can be integrated into smart home systems and automatically recognizes permitted authorized vehicles and works with internet-connected devices to monitor and control systems and appliances remotely.
 
In January 2020, the Mt. Juliet Police Department in Tennessee selected Rekor to roll out the community’s Automated License Plate Recognition (“ALPR”) program which the department is terming, “Guardian Shield.” The Guardian Shield program was initiated to enhance the community’s safety by providing an additional tool to law enforcement. 40% of the cameras are operational and the other percentage of cameras are under construction as planned.
 
Opportunities, Trends and Uncertainties
 
Different trends, factors and uncertainties, including market cycles, may impact our operations and financial condition, including many that are unforeseeable. However, we believe that our results of operations and financial condition for the foreseeable future will be primarily affected by trends, factors and uncertainties discussed in our 2019 Annual Report under “Part II - Item 7 – Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, in addition to the information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The opportunities, trends, and uncertainties that we are most focused on at the current time are:
 
AI for the Roadway – We believe that the application of AI to the analysis roadway condition will significantly affect vehicular travel in the future by assisting in the intelligent optimization of traffic flows and the identification of anomalous and unsafe movements – e.g. wrong way, stopped vehicle, pedestrian on the roadway. Marketers and drive-thru retailers with loyalty programs can benefit from the rapid identification of existing and potential customers and streamlining vehicular flow. 
 
Graphic Processing Unit (“GPU”) Improvements – We expect our business to benefit as a result of more powerful and affordable GPU hardware that has recently been developed. These GPUs are more efficient for image processing because their highly parallel structure makes them more efficient than general-purpose central procession units (“CPUs”) for algorithms that process large blocks of data, such as those produced by video streams. GPUs also provide superior memory bandwidth and efficiencies as compared to their CPU counterparts. The most recent versions of our software have been designed to use the increased GPU speeds to accelerate image recognitions. The GPU market is predicted to grow as a result of a surge in adoption of the Internet of Things (“IoT”) by the industrial and automotive sectors. As GPU manufacturers increase production volume, we hope to benefit from the reduced cost to manufacture the hardware included in our products or available to others using our services.

Adaptability of the Current ALPR Market – We have made a considerable investment in our advanced vehicle recognition systems because we believe their increased accuracy and affordability will allow them to compete effectively with existing providers. Based on published benchmarks, our software currently outperforms competitors in almost every metric. However, large users of existing ALPR Technology, such as toll roads, have long-term contracts with service providers that have made considerable investments in their existing technologies and may not consider the improvements in accuracy or reductions in cost sufficient to justify abandoning their current systems in the near future. In addition, existing providers may be able to reduce the cost of their current offerings or elect to reduce prices and accept reduced profitability while working to develop or secure their own advanced vehicle recognition systems. As a result, our success in establishing a major position in these markets will depend on being able to effectively communicate our presence, develop strong customer relationships, and maintain leadership in providing the capabilities that customers want. As with any large market, this will require considerable effort and resources.
 
New and Expanded Uses for Vehicle Recognition Systems – We believe that reductions in the cost of vehicle recognition products and services will significantly broaden the market for these systems. We currently serve a number of users who could not afford the cost or adapt to, the restrictions of conventional vehicle recognition systems. These include smaller municipalities, homeowners’ associations, and organizations finding new applications such as innovative customer loyalty programs. We have seen and responded to an increase in the number of smaller jurisdictions and municipalities that are testing ALPR systems or that issued requests for proposals to install a network of ALPR cameras. We also expect the availability of faster, higher accuracy, lower cost systems to dramatically increase the ability of crowded urban areas to manage traffic congestion and implement smart city programs. We do not currently have the resources to develop all of these entirely new markets by ourselves, so we will need to rely on affiliations with other partners, who may or may not realize the significant benefits that we envision from these new uses.
 
Expansion of Automated Enforcement of Motor Vehicle Laws – We believe that future legislation will allow for auto enforcement of motor vehicle regulations to be expanded as the types of violations authorized for automated enforcement increase and experience provides localities with a better understanding of the circumstances where automated enforcement is beneficial. For example, there are now 17 states that allow for the automatic enforcement of violations by vehicles that pass a school bus displaying its flashing red lights and a stop sign. In addition, due to high rates of fatalities and injuries to law enforcement and other emergency response crews on roadsides, several states are considering authorizing automated enforcement of violations where motorists fail to slow down and/or move over for emergency responders and law enforcement vehicles at the side of the road. Legislative implementation is a deliberative and necessarily time-consuming process. However, as states expand auto enforcement, the market for our products and services should increase and broaden in the public safety market
 
Increasing Smart City Market – Nokia has approved the use of our OpenALPR software for its smart city offerings. In the smart city’s market, real-time vehicle recognition technologies are widely used for traffic management and public safety. As a result, we expect to benefit from the growth of this market.
 
Accelerated Business Development and Marketing – Our ability to compete in a large, competitive and rapidly evolving industry will require us to achieve and maintain a leadership position. As a result, we have accelerated our business development and marketing activities to increase awareness and market adoption of our new technology and products within the market. However, the speed at which these markets grow to the degree of which our products and services are adopted is uncertain.
 
Ability to Scale and Balance Production to Meet Demand – While we have arranged manufacturing capabilities for our products, we are unproven in our ability to deliver large volumes of products at our high-quality standards.
 
Sales Cycle – As many of our products are new to market, their acceptance and integration into the intended markets is uncertain and we do not have sufficient historical experience to accurately predict revenues as a result of their implementation.
