TELOS CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

Note 1.
General and Basis of Presentation
 
Telos Corporation, together with its subsidiaries (the “Company” or “Telos” or “We”), is an information technology solutions and services company addressing the needs of U.S. Government and commercial customers worldwide.  Our principal offices are located at 19886 Ashburn Road, Ashburn, Virginia 20147.  The Company was incorporated as a Maryland corporation in October 1971.  Our web site is www.telos.com.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Telos and its subsidiaries, including Ubiquity.com, Inc., Xacta Corporation and Telos Delaware, Inc., all of whose issued and outstanding share capital is owned by the Company.  We have also consolidated the results of operations of Telos Identity Management Solutions, LLC (“Telos ID”) (see Note 2 – Sale of Assets), and Teloworks, Inc.  All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

In our opinion, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) and reclassifications necessary for their fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The presented interim results are not necessarily indicative of fiscal year performance for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, the impact of seasonal and short-term variations. We have continued to follow the accounting policies (including the critical accounting policies) set forth in the consolidated financial statements included in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

In preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, we have evaluated subsequent events through the date that these condensed consolidated financial statements were issued.

Segment Reporting
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available and evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker, or decision making group, in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance. The Company currently has one reportable segment for financial reporting purposes.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, “Testing Goodwill for Impairment,” that amends the accounting guidance on goodwill impairment testing. The amended guidance will allow companies to assess qualitative factors to determine if it is more-likely-than-not that goodwill might be impaired and whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test required under current accounting standards. This guidance is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Revenue Recognition
Revenues are recognized in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605-10-S99, “Revenue Recognition.”  We consider amounts earned upon evidence that an arrangement has been obtained, services are delivered, fees are fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. Additionally, revenues on arrangements requiring the delivery of more than one product or service are recognized in accordance with ASC 605-25, “Revenue Recognition – Multiple-Element Arrangements.”

We recognize revenues for software arrangements upon persuasive evidence of an arrangement, delivery of the software, and determination that collection of a fixed or determinable license fee is probable.  Revenues for software licenses sold on a subscription basis are recognized ratably over the related license period. For arrangements where the sale of software licenses are bundled with other products, including software products, upgrades and enhancements, post-contract customer support (“PCS”), and installation, the relative fair value of each element is determined based on vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”).  VSOE is defined by ASC 985-605, “Software: Revenue Recognition,” and is limited to the price charged when the element is sold separately or, if the element is not yet sold separately, the price set by management having the relevant authority.  When VSOE exists for undelivered elements, the remaining consideration is allocated to delivered elements using the residual method.  If VSOE does not exist for the allocation of revenue to the various elements of the arrangement, all revenue from the arrangement is deferred until the earlier of the point at which (1) such VSOE does exist or (2) all elements of the arrangement are delivered.  PCS revenues, upon being unbundled from a software license fee, are recognized ratably over the PCS period.

Substantially all of our contracts are contracts with the U.S. Government involving the complex delivery of technology products and services. Accordingly, these contracts are within the scope of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountant’s Audit and Accounting Guide for Audits of Federal Government Contractors. To the extent contracts are incomplete at the end of an accounting period, revenue is recognized on the percentage-of-completion method, on a proportional performance basis, using costs incurred in relation to total estimated costs.

We may use subcontractors and suppliers in the course of performing on contracts.  Some of these arrangements may fall within the scope of ASC 605-45, “Reporting Revenue Gross as a Principal versus Net as an Agent.”  We presume that revenues on our contracts are recognized on a gross basis, as we generally provide significant value-added services, assume credit risk, and reserve the right to select subcontractors and suppliers, but we evaluate the various criteria specified in the guidance in making the determination of whether revenue should be recognized on a gross or net basis.

A description of the business lines, the typical deliverables, and the revenue recognition criteria in general for such deliverables follows:

Cyber Operations and Defense (formerly Secure Networks and Information Assurance):

In the first quarter of 2012, our Secure Networks and Information Assurance solutions areas were merged.

Regarding our deliverables of network solutions, we provide wireless and wired networking solutions consisting of hardware and services to our customers. Also, within the Cyber Operations and Defense solutions area is our Emerging Technologies Group creating innovative, custom-tailored solutions for government and commercial enterprises.  The solutions within Secure Networks and Emerging Technologies are generally sold as firm-fixed price (“FFP”) bundled solutions.  Certain of these networking solutions involve contracts to design, develop, or modify complex electronic equipment configurations to a buyer's specification or to provide network engineering services related to the performance of such contracts, and as such fall within the scope of ASC 605-35 “Construction-Type and Production-Type Contracts”.  Revenue is earned upon percentage of completion based upon proportional performance, such performance generally being defined by performance milestones.  Certain other solutions fall within the scope of ASC 605-10-S99, such as resold information technology products, like laptops, printers, networking equipment and peripherals, and ASC 605-25. Revenue is recognized based upon objective reliable evidence of fair value of the elements, such as upon delivery of the hardware product or other direct costs (“ODC”) and the ongoing maintenance. For product sales, revenue is recognized upon proof of acceptance by the customer, otherwise it is deferred until such time as the proof of acceptance is obtained.  For example, in delivery orders for Department of Defense customers, which comprise the majority of the Company’s customers, such acceptance is achieved with a signed Department of Defense Form DD-250. Services provided under these contracts are generally provided on a FFP basis, and as such fall within the scope of ASC 605-10-S99. Revenue for services is recognized based on proportional performance, as the work progresses. FFP services may be billed to the customer on a percentage-of-completion basis or based upon milestones, which may approximate the proportional performance of the services under the agreements, as specified in such agreements. To the extent that customer billings exceed the performance of the specified services, the revenue would be deferred. Revenue is recognized under time-and-materials (“T&M”) services contracts based upon specified billing rates and other direct costs as incurred.
 
Regarding our information assurance deliverables, we provide Xacta IA Manager software and cybersecurity services to our customers.  The software and accompanying services fall within the scope of ASC 985-605, “Software Revenue Recognition,” as fully discussed above.  We provide consulting services to our customers under either a FFP or T&M basis. Such contracts fall under the scope of ASC 605-10-S99. Revenue for FFP services is recognized on a proportional performance basis. FFP services may be billed to the customer on a percentage-of-completion basis or based upon milestones, which may approximate the proportional performance of the services under the agreements, as specified in such agreements. To the extent that customer billings exceed the performance of the specified services, the revenue would be deferred. Revenue is recognized under T&M contracts based upon specified billing rates and other direct costs as incurred.

Secure Communications (formerly Secure Messaging) – We provide Secure Information eXchange (T-6) suite of products which include the flagship product the Automated Message Handling System (“AMHS”), Secure Collaboration, Secure Discovery, Secure Directory and Cross Domain Communication, as well as related services to our customers. The system and accompanying services fall within the scope of ASC 985-605, as fully discussed above. Other services fall within the scope of ASC 605-10-S99 for arrangements that include only T&M contracts and ASC 605-25 for contracts with multiple deliverables such as T&M elements and FFP services where objective reliable evidence of fair value of the elements is available.  Under such arrangements, the T&M elements are established by direct costs.  Revenue is recognized on T&M contracts according to specified rates as direct labor and other direct costs are incurred.  Revenue for FFP services is recognized on a proportional performance basis. FFP services may be billed to the customer on a percentage-of-completion basis or based upon milestones, which may approximate the proportional performance of the services under the agreements, as specified in such agreements. To the extent that customer billings exceed the performance of the specified services, the revenue would be deferred.

Identity ManagementWe provide our identity assurance and access management solutions and services and sell information technology products, such as computer laptops and specialized printers, and consumables, such as identity cards, to our customers. The solutions are generally sold as FFP bundled solutions, which would typically fall within the scope of ASC 605-25 and ASC 605-10-S99. Revenue is recognized based upon objective reliable evidence of fair value of the elements, such as upon delivery of the hardware product or ODC’s and the ongoing maintenance.  Revenue for services is recognized based on proportional performance, as the work progresses. FFP services may be billed to the customer on a percentage-of-completion basis or based upon milestones, which may approximate the proportional performance of the services under the agreements, as specified in such agreements. To the extent that customer billings exceed the performance of the specified services, the revenue would be deferred. Revenue is recognized under T&M contracts based upon specified billing rates and other direct costs as incurred.

Accounts Receivable
Accounts receivable are stated at the invoiced amount, less allowances for doubtful accounts.  Collectability of accounts receivable is regularly reviewed based upon management’s knowledge of the specific circumstances related to overdue balances. The allowance for doubtful accounts is adjusted based on such evaluation. Accounts receivable balances are written off against the allowance when management deems the balances uncollectible.

Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, where cost is determined on the weighted average method.  Substantially all inventories consist of purchased commercial off-the-shelf hardware and software, and component computer parts used in connection with system integration services that we perform.  An allowance for obsolete, slow-moving or nonsalable inventory is provided for all other inventory.  This allowance is based on our overall obsolescence experience and our assessment of future inventory requirements.  This charge is taken primarily due to the age of the specific inventory and the significant additional costs that would be necessary to upgrade to current standards as well as the lack of forecasted sales for such inventory in the near future.  Gross inventory is $10.7 million and $15.0 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  As of June 30, 2012, it is management’s judgment that we have fully provided for any potential inventory obsolescence.

Income Taxes
We account for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, “Income Taxes.”  Under ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences of temporary differences and income tax credits.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured by applying enacted statutory tax rates that are applicable to the future years in which deferred tax assets or liabilities are expected to be settled or realized for differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and the tax bases of existing assets and liabilities.  Any change in tax rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in net income in the period in which the tax rate change is enacted.  We record a valuation allowance that reduces deferred tax assets when it is "more likely than not" that deferred tax assets will not be realized.

We follow the provisions of ASC 740 related to accounting for uncertainty in income taxes. The accounting estimates related to liabilities for uncertain tax positions require us to make judgments regarding the sustainability of each uncertain tax position based on its technical merits. If we determine it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained based on its technical merits, we record the impact of the position in our consolidated financial statements at the largest amount that is greater than fifty percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. These estimates are updated at each reporting date based on the facts, circumstances and information available. We are also required to assess at each reporting date whether it is reasonably possible that any significant increases or decreases to our unrecognized tax benefits will occur during the next twelve months.

The provision for income taxes in interim periods is computed by applying the estimated annual effective tax rate against earnings before income tax expense for the period. In addition, non-recurring or discrete items are recorded during the period in which they occur.

Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
We evaluate the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets in accordance with ASC No. 350, “Goodwill and Intangible Assets,” which requires goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets to be assessed on at least an annual basis for impairment using a fair value basis.  Between annual evaluations, if events occur or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of the reporting unit below its carrying amount, then impairment must be evaluated. Such circumstances could include, but are not limited to: (1) a significant adverse change in legal factors or business climate, or (2) a loss of key contracts or customers.

As the result of an acquisition, we record any excess purchase price over the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired as goodwill. An allocation of the purchase price to tangible and intangible net assets acquired is based upon our valuation of the acquired assets.  Goodwill is not amortized, but is subject to annual impairment tests.   We complete goodwill impairment tests at least annually as of October 1 each year.   We estimate fair value of our reporting unit and compare the valuation with the respective carrying value for the reporting unit to determine whether any goodwill impairment exists.   If we determine through the impairment review process that goodwill is impaired, we will record an impairment charge in our consolidated statement of operations.  Goodwill is amortized and deducted over a 15-year period for tax purposes.

Other intangible assets consist primarily of customer relationship enhancements. Intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives of 5 years.  The amortization is based on a forecast of approximately equal annual customer orders over the 5-year period.  Amortization expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $0.6 million and $1.1 million, respectively, and will be approximately $2.3 million per year for the next 4 years. Intangible assets are subject to impairment review if there are events or changes in circumstances that indicate that the carrying amount is not recoverable.  As of June 30, 2012, no impairment charges were taken.

Restricted Stock Grants
In June 2008, we issued 4,774,273 shares of restricted stock (Class A common) in exchange for the majority of stock options outstanding under the Telos Corporation, Xacta Corporation and Telos Delaware, Inc. stock option plans.  In addition, we granted 7,141,501 shares of restricted stock to our executive officers and employees.  In September 2008 and December 2009, we granted 480,000 shares and 80,000 shares, respectively, of restricted stock to certain of our directors.  In February 2011, we granted an additional 2,330,804 shares of restricted stock to our executive officers, directors and employees.  In March 2012, we granted an additional 10,000 shares to an employee.  Such stock is subject to a vesting schedule as follows:  25% of the restricted stock vested immediately on the date of grant, thereafter, an additional 25% will vest annually on the anniversary of the date of grant subject to continued employment.  In accordance with ASC 718, we reported no compensation expense for any of the issuances as the value of the common stock was negligible, based on the deduction of our outstanding debt, capital lease obligations, and preferred stock from an estimated enterprise value, which was estimated based on discounted cash flow analysis, comparable public company analysis, and comparable transaction analysis.

Note 2.  Sale of Assets

On April 11, 2007, Telos ID was formed as a limited liability company under the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act. We contributed substantially all of the assets of our Identity Management business line and assigned our rights to perform under our U.S. Government contract with the Defense Manpower Data Center (“DMDC”) to Telos ID at their stated book values. The net book value of assets we contributed totaled $17,000. Until April 19, 2007, we owned 99.999% of the membership interests of Telos ID and certain private equity investors ("Investors") owned 0.001% of the membership interests of Telos ID. On April 20, 2007, we sold an additional 39.999% of the membership interests to the Investors in exchange for $6 million in cash consideration.   In accordance with ASC 505-10, “Equity-Overall,” we recognized a gain of $5.8 million.   As a result, we own 60% of Telos ID, and therefore continue to account for the investment in Telos ID using the consolidation method.

The Amended and Restated Operating Agreement of Telos ID (“Operating Agreement”) provides for a Board of Directors comprised of five members.  Pursuant to the Operating Agreement, John B. Wood, Chairman and CEO of Telos, has been designated as the Chairman of the Board of Telos ID.  The Operating Agreement also provides for two subclasses of membership units:  Class A, held by us and Class B, held by certain private equity investors.  The Class A membership unit owns 60% of Telos ID, as mentioned above, and as such is allocated 60% of the profits, which was $1.0 million and $1.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $608,000 and $857,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, and is entitled to appoint three members of the Board of Directors.  The Class B membership unit owns 40% of Telos ID, and as such is allocated 40% of the profits, which was $676,000 and $874,000 profit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $405,000 and $572,000 profit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, and is entitled to appoint two members of the Board of Directors.  The Class B membership unit is the non-controlling interest.

In accordance with the Operating Agreement, quarterly distributions of $450,000 were required to be made to the Class B members for the initial eighteen month period after the sale of Telos ID membership interests. Further, subsequent to the initial eighteen month period, distributions were to be made to the members only when and to the extent determined by the Telos ID’s Board of Directors, in accordance with the Operating Agreement.  The Class B members received a total of $196,000 and $572,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $166,000 and $616,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, of such distributions.

Note 3.
Acquisition of IT Logistics, Inc.

On July 1, 2011, we entered into, and concurrently completed the transactions contemplated by, the Asset Purchase Agreement with IT Logistics Inc., an Alabama corporation (“ITL”), and its sole stockholder.  We purchased certain assets relating to the operation of ITL’s business of providing survey, design, engineering, and installation services of inside and outside plant secure networking infrastructure and program management expertise.  Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, Telos assumed certain liabilities of ITL, principally liabilities that accrued on or after July 1, 2011, under certain contracts assumed by Telos.
 
The purchase price for the assets (in addition to the assumed liabilities described above) consisted of (1) $8 million payable on July 1, 2011, (2) $7 million payable in ten monthly payments of $700,000, together with interest on the unpaid balance of such amount at the rate of 0.50% per annum, beginning on August 1, 2011 and on the first day of each subsequent month thereafter, and (3) a subordinated promissory note (the “Note”) with a principal amount of $15 million.  The Note accrues interest at a rate of 6.0% per annum beginning November 1, 2012, and is payable on July 1, 2041.  The entire unpaid principal balance plus accrued and unpaid interest is due and payable upon the occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Note), provided that all “Senior Obligations” are satisfied prior to or concurrent with such Change in Control.  For purposes of the Note, “Senior Obligations” means, collectively, all (1) outstanding indebtedness of Telos, and (2) amounts due to the holders of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Series A-1 Redeemable Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, and 12% Cumulative Exchangeable Preferred Stock (or any securities redeemable or exchangeable for any of the foregoing) upon a Change in Control, upon the voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the affairs of Telos, or otherwise.   Based on the total fair value of the consideration paid, the total purchase price is determined to be $26.5 million.

ITL had been a Telos subcontractor for several years, utilized by our former Secure Networks business line which is currently part of the Cyber Operations and Defense business line. The acquisition allows the Company to internally maintain the capacity for the work ITL performs, instead of subcontracting such work.  Major General John W. Maluda, who serves on the Company’s board of directors, served on the advisory board of ITL, and this relationship was disclosed to the Company’s board of directors before its consideration of the acquisition.  General Maluda did not have any financial stake in ITL and did not receive any benefit from the sale of its assets to Telos.

The asset purchase agreement and the complete terms of the notes were filed as exhibits to the Form 8-K filed by the Company on July 8, 2011.  Borrowings of $8.0 million were drawn from the Facility in order to finance the initial cash consideration.

The operating results of ITL have been included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of the acquisition date of July 1, 2011.  The acquisition has been accounted for under the purchase method of accounting.  Under the purchase method of accounting, the total purchase price was allocated to ITL’s net tangible and intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values as of July 1, 2011. The excess of the purchase price over the net tangible and intangible assets was recorded as goodwill.  Goodwill is amortized and deducted over a 15-year period for tax purposes.  Telos has made an allocation of the purchase price as follows (amounts in thousands):

Inventories, net
  $ 221  
Property and equipment, net
    108  
Goodwill
    14,916  
Other intangible asset
    11,286  
Total purchase price allocation
  $ 26,531  

Of the total purchase price, approximately $11.3 million has been allocated to an amortizable intangible asset acquired and approximately $0.3 million has been allocated to tangible net assets assumed in connection with the acquisition.  The acquired intangible asset was an estimated enhancement of customer relationships over a 5-year term.  This asset is being amortized on a straight-line basis over the term based on the anticipated realized benefit for the duration of the customer relationships.  The amortization is based on a forecast of approximately equal annual customer orders.  As of the measurement date, no material adverse conditions existed which would have led to the conclusion that the asset was impaired.
 
On a pro forma combined basis, the revenue effect of the ITL acquisition is immaterial as Telos was ITL’s primary revenue source prior to the acquisition.  On a pro forma combined basis, net income attributable to Telos Corporation for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 was $0.8 million and $1.8 million, respectively.

Note 4.
Investment in Enterworks
 
 As of June 30, 2012, we owned 671,301 shares of common stock, 729,732 shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock, 1,793,903 shares of Series B-1 Preferred Stock, and 8,571,429 shares of Series D Preferred Stock of Enterworks, Inc. (“Enterworks”) and warrants to purchase 1,785,714 underlying common stock shares, representing a fully diluted ownership percentage of 8.2% of Enterworks.  Since our initial investment in Enterworks, we accounted for our investment under the equity method of accounting, due to our significant influence on Enterworks’ operations through our representation on the Board of Directors of Enterworks.  However, effective January 1, 2008, we discontinued the equity method of accounting for our investment in Enterworks due to our significantly diminished role in Enterworks’ operations.  We previously reduced the carrying value of our investment in Enterworks to zero.

Note 5.
Fair Value Measurements

The accounting standard for fair value measurements provides a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  The framework requires the valuation of financial instruments using a three-tiered approach.  The statement requires fair value measurement to be classified and disclosed in one of the following categories:

Level 1:  Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets and liabilities;

Level 2:  Quoted prices in the markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability; or

Level 3:  Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (i.e. supported by little or no market activity).

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we did not have any financial instruments with significant Level 3 inputs and we did not have any financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

At June 30, 2012, there was a $15 million subordinated promissory note payable to the seller of ITL (see Note 3 – Acquisition of IT Logistics, Inc.), which was recorded at its fair value of $11.7 million and has been accreted to its current carrying value of $12.4 million and $12.1 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

On April 8, 2011, 22.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed for $2.1 million, and on May 16, 2012, 26.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed for $2.0 million (see Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock).  As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the carrying value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was $6.1 million and $8.2 million, respectively.  Since there have been no material changes in the Company’s financial condition and no material modifications to the financial instruments, the estimated fair value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock remains consistent with those disclosed as of December 31, 2011, adjusted for the redemption and accrual of dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the carrying value of the Company’s 12% Cumulative Exchangeable Redeemable Preferred Stock, par value $.01 per share (the “Public Preferred Stock”) was $110.5 million and $108.6 million, respectively, and the estimated fair market value was $38.2 million and $65.3 million, respectively, based on quoted market prices.

Note 6.
Current Liabilities and Debt Obligations
 
Accounts Payable and Other Accrued Payables
As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the accounts payable and other accrued payables consisted of $22.1 million and $16.0 million, respectively, in trade account payables and $4.1 million and $5.9 million, respectively, in accrued trade payables.

Senior Revolving Credit Facility
On May 17, 2010, we amended our $25 million revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) with Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Inc. (“Wells Fargo”).  Under the amended terms, the maturity date of the Facility was extended to May 17, 2014 from September 30, 2011, the limit on the Facility was increased to $30 million from $25 million, and a term loan component of $7.5 million was added to the Facility.  The principal of the term loan component will be repaid in quarterly installments of $93,750, with a final installment of the unpaid principal amount payable on May 17, 2014.  The interest rate on the term loan component is the same as that on the revolving credit component of the Facility, which was changed to the higher of the Wells Fargo Bank “prime rate” plus 1%, the Federal Funds rate plus 1.5%, or the 3-month LIBOR rate plus 2%. In lieu of having interest charged at the foregoing rates, the Company may elect to have the interest on all or a portion of the advances on the revolving credit component be a rate based on the LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Facility) plus 3.75%.  As of June 30, 2012, we have not elected the LIBOR Rate option.  Borrowings under the Facility continue to be collateralized by substantially all of the Company’s assets including inventory, equipment, and accounts receivable.   The financial covenants were updated to include minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Facility), minimum recurring revenue and a limit on capital expenditures.  The Facility’s anniversary fee was discontinued and the collateral management fee was reduced.
 
On September 27, 2010, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of up to $2.5 million of the aggregate value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock at a discount from par value of at least 10%.  On September 27, 2010 and on April 8, 2011, a portion of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed (see Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock).

On May 11, 2012, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, under certain conditions, at a discount from par value plus accrued dividends of at least 10%, at an aggregate price not to exceed $4.0 million.  On May 16, 2012, a portion of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed (see Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock).

As of June 30, 2012, the interest rate on the Facility was 4.25%.   We incurred interest expense in the amount of $0.2 million and $0.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, and $0.1 million and $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, on the Facility.

The Facility has various covenants that may, among other things, affect our ability to merge with another entity, sell or transfer certain assets, pay dividends and make other distributions beyond certain limitations.  As of June 30, 2012, we were in compliance with the Facility’s financial covenants, including EBITDA covenants.  The term loan component of the Facility amortizes at 5% per year, or $0.4 million, which is paid in quarterly installments and is classified as current on the consolidated balance sheets.  The remaining balance of the term loan, or $6.4 million, and the revolving component of the Facility mature over the period 2012 through 2014.

At June 30, 2012, we had outstanding borrowings of $19.1 million on the Facility, which included the $6.8 million term loan, of which $0.4 million was short-term.   At December 31, 2011, we had outstanding borrowings of $17.9 million on the Facility, which included the $6.9 million term loan, of which $0.4 million was short-term.   At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we had unused borrowing availability on the Facility of $7.3 million and $5.3 million, respectively.  The effective weighted average interest rates on the outstanding borrowings under the Facility were 5.3% and 6.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Notes payable – IT Logistics, Inc.
  On July 1, 2011, we entered into, and concurrently completed the transactions contemplated by, the Asset Purchase Agreement with IT Logistics Inc., an Alabama corporation (“ITL”), and its sole stockholder, see Note 3 – Acquisition of IT Logistics, Inc.  We purchased certain assets relating to the operation of ITL’s business of providing survey, design, engineering, and installation services of inside and outside plant secure networking infrastructure and program management expertise.  Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, Telos assumed certain liabilities of ITL, principally liabilities that accrued on or after July 1, 2011, under certain contracts assumed by Telos.
 
The purchase price for the assets (in addition to the assumed liabilities described above) consisted of (1) $8 million payable on July 1, 2011, (2) $7 million payable in ten monthly payments of $700,000, together with interest on the unpaid balance of such amount at the rate of 0.50% per annum, beginning on August 1, 2011 and on the first day of each subsequent month thereafter, and (3) a subordinated promissory note (the “Note”) with a principal amount of $15 million.  The Note accrues interest at a rate of 6.0% per annum beginning November 1, 2012, and is payable on July 1, 2041.  The entire unpaid principal balance plus accrued and unpaid interest is due and payable upon the occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Note), provided that all “Senior Obligations” are satisfied prior to or concurrent with such Change in Control.  For purposes of the Note, “Senior Obligations” means, collectively, all (1) outstanding indebtedness of Telos, and (2) amounts due to the holders of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Series A-1 Redeemable Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, and 12% Cumulative Exchangeable Preferred Stock (or any securities redeemable or exchangeable for any of the foregoing) upon a Change in Control, upon the voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the affairs of Telos, or otherwise.

At June 30, 2012, the $7 million payable in ten monthly payments had been fully paid.  We incurred interest expense in the amount of $1,000 and $4,000 on the $7 million payable in ten monthly payments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.  Additionally, the Note was recorded at its fair value of $11.7 million and has been accreted to its current carrying value of $12.4 million as of June 30, 2012.  The Note will be accreted to its face value over 60 months, when we estimate repayment.

Warranty Liability
We provide warranty services to our customers primarily in the network solutions deliverables of the Cyber Operations and Defense business line. The majority of our warranty services involves contractual coverage with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) and primarily involves referrals to the OEM for service calls.  Additionally, certain contracts and programs require that we provide an enhanced level of warranty coverage. The balance of our accrued warranty liability as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $0.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively.

Note 7.
Redeemable Preferred Stock

Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock
The Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is senior to all other outstanding equity of the Company, including the Public Preferred Stock. The Series A-1 ranks on a parity with the Series A-2.  The components of the authorized Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock are 1,250 shares of Series A-1 and 1,750 shares of Series A-2 Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, each with $.01 par value. The Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock carries a cumulative per annum dividend rate of 14.125% of its liquidation value of $1,000 per share. The dividends are payable semiannually on June 30 and December 31 of each year. We have not declared dividends on our Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock since its issuance. The liquidation preference of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is the face amount of the Series A-1 and A-2 ($1,000 per share), plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.

Due to the terms of the Facility and of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, we have been and continue to be precluded from paying any accrued and unpaid dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, other than described below. Certain holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock have entered into standby agreements whereby, among other things, those holders will not demand any payments in respect of dividends or redemptions of their instruments and the maturity dates of the instruments have been extended.  As a result of such standby agreements, as of June 30, 2012, instruments held by Toxford Corporation (“Toxford”), the holder of 76.4% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, will mature on August 31, 2014.

On September 27, 2010, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of up to $2.5 million of the aggregate value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock under certain conditions, the most significant being the redemption at a discount from par value of at least 10%.  In accordance with the terms of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, however, any redemption must be pro rata among the holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock unless such holders waive their rights to have their shares redeemed.  Due to the limitations, contractual restrictions, and agreements described above, the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is classified as noncurrent as of June 30, 2012.

On September 27, 2010, with the consent and waiver of the remaining holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 4.9% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $522,000 was redeemed for $430,000, resulting in a gain in the amount of $92,000, representing a discount of approximately 17.5%, which was recorded in other income on the consolidated statements of operations.

On or about March 15, 2011, Mr. John Porter, the beneficial owner of 44.0% of our Class A Common Stock, acquired a total of 75 shares and 105 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, from other holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  As of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter individually held 6.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  In the aggregate, as of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter and Toxford held a total of 560 shares and 784 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, or 82.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  Mr. Porter is the sole stockholder of Toxford.

On April 8, 2011, with the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 22.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $2.3 million was redeemed for $2.1 million, resulting in a gain in the amount of approximately $0.2 million, representing a discount of 10%, which was recorded in other income on the consolidated statements of operations.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 923 shares and 1,292 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

On May 11, 2012, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, under certain conditions, at a discount from par value plus accrued dividends of at least 10%, at an aggregate price not to exceed $4.0 million.  On May 16, 2012, with the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 26.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $2.2 million was redeemed for $2.0 million, resulting in a gain in the amount of approximately $0.2 million, representing a discount of 10%, which was recorded in other income on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 677 shares and 947 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

At June 30, 2012, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 677 shares and 947 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.    At December 31, 2011, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 923 shares and 1,292 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, cumulative undeclared, unpaid dividends relating to Senior Redeemable Preferred stock totaled $4.5 million and $6.0 million, respectively.  We accrued dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock of $64,000 and $142,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $80,000 and $179,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, which were reported as interest expense.  Prior to the effective date of ASC 480-10, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” on July 1, 2003, such dividends were charged to stockholders’ deficit.

12% Cumulative Exchangeable Redeemable Preferred Stock
A maximum of 6,000,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock, par value $.01 per share, has been authorized for issuance. We initially issued 2,858,723 shares of the Public Preferred Stock during fiscal year 1990. The Public Preferred Stock was recorded at fair value on the date of original issue, November 21, 1989, and we made periodic accretions under the interest method of the excess of the redemption value over the recorded value. We adjusted our estimate of accrued accretion in the amount of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2006.  The Public Preferred Stock was fully accreted as of December 2008.  We declared stock dividends totaling 736,863 shares in 1990 and 1991. Since 1991, no other dividends, in stock or cash, have been declared. In November 1998, we retired 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock. The total number of shares issued and outstanding at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 3,185,586.  The Public Preferred Stock trades over the OTC Bulletin Board.

 Since 1991, no other dividends were declared or paid on our Public Preferred Stock, based upon our interpretation of restrictions in our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, filed with the State of Maryland on January 5, 1992, as amended on April 14, 1995 (“Charter”), limitations in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument, specific dividend payment restrictions in the Facility entered into with Wells Fargo to which the Public Preferred Stock is subject, other senior obligations, and Maryland law limitations in existence prior to October 1, 2009.  Pursuant to their terms, we were scheduled, but not required, to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in five annual tranches during the period 2005 through 2009. However, due to our substantial senior obligations, limitations set forth in the covenants in the Facility, foreseeable capital and operational requirements, and restrictions and prohibitions of our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, we were unable to meet the redemption schedule set forth in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument. Moreover, the Public Preferred Stock is not payable on demand, nor callable, for failure to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in accordance with the redemption schedule set forth in the instrument. Therefore, we classify these securities as noncurrent liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

We are parties with certain of our subsidiaries to the Facility agreement with Wells Fargo, whose term expires on May 17, 2014.  Under the Facility, we agreed that, so long as any credit under the Facility is available and until full and final payment of the obligations under the Facility, we would not make any distribution or declare or pay any dividends (other than common stock) on our stock, or purchase, acquire, or redeem any stock, or exchange any stock for indebtedness, or retire any stock.

Accordingly, as stated above, we will continue to classify the entirety of our obligation to redeem the Public Preferred Stock as a long-term obligation.  The Facility prohibits, among other things, the redemption of any stock, common or preferred, other than as described above.  The Public Preferred Stock by its terms cannot be redeemed if doing so would violate the terms of an agreement regarding the borrowing of funds or the extension of credit which is binding upon us or any of our subsidiaries, and it does not include any other provisions that would otherwise require any acceleration of the redemption of or amortization payments with respect to the Public Preferred Stock.  Thus, the Public Preferred Stock is not and will not be due on demand, nor callable, within twelve months from June 30, 2012.  This classification is consistent with ASC 210-10, “Balance Sheet” and 470-10, “Debt” and the FASB ASC Master Glossary definition of “Current Liabilities.”

ASC 210-10 and the FASB ASC Master Glossary define current liabilities as follows: The term current liabilities is used principally to designate obligations whose liquidation is reasonably expected to require the use of existing resources properly classifiable as current assets, or the creation of other current liabilities. As a balance sheet category, the classification is intended to include obligations for items which have entered into the operating cycle, such as payables incurred in the acquisition of materials and supplies to be used in the production of goods or in providing services to be offered for sale; collections received in advance of the delivery of goods or performance of services; and debts that arise from operations directly related to the operating cycle, such as accruals for wages, salaries, commissions, rentals, royalties, and income and other taxes. Other liabilities whose regular and ordinary liquidation is expected to occur within a relatively short period of time, usually twelve months, are also intended for inclusion, such as short-term debts arising from the acquisition of capital assets, serial maturities of long-term obligations, amounts required to be expended within one year under sinking fund provisions, and agency obligations arising from the collection or acceptance of cash or other assets for the account of third persons.

ASC 470-10 provides the following: The current liability classification is also intended to include obligations that, by their terms, are due on demand or will be due on demand within one year (or operating cycle, if longer) from the balance sheet date, even though liquidation may not be expected within that period.  It is also intended to include long-term obligations that are or will be callable by the creditor either because the debtor’s violation of a provision of the debt agreement at the balance sheet date makes the obligation callable or because the violation, if not cured within a specified grace period, will make the obligation callable.

If, pursuant to the terms of the Public Preferred Stock, we do not redeem the Public Preferred Stock in accordance with the scheduled redemptions described above, the terms of the Public Preferred Stock require us to discharge our obligation to redeem the Public Preferred Stock as soon as we are financially capable and legally permitted to do so.  Therefore, by its very terms, the Public Preferred Stock is not due on demand or callable for failure to make a scheduled payment pursuant to its redemption provisions and is properly classified as a noncurrent liability.

We pay dividends on the Public Preferred Stock when and if declared by the Board of Directors. The Public Preferred Stock accrues a semi-annual dividend at the annual rate of 12% ($1.20) per share, based on the liquidation preference of $10 per share and is fully cumulative. Dividends in additional shares of the Public Preferred Stock for 1990 and 1991 were paid at the rate of 6% of a share for each $.60 of such dividends not paid in cash. For the cash dividends payable since December 1, 1995, the Company has accrued $78.7 million and $76.8 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

In accordance with ASC 480-10, both the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock and the Public Preferred Stock have been reclassified from equity to liability. Consequently, dividends totaling $1.0 million and $2.1 million for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, were accrued and reported as interest expense. Prior to the effective date of ASC 480-10 on July 1, 2003, such dividends were charged to stockholders’ accumulated deficit.

The carrying value of the accrued Paid-in-Kind (“PIK”) dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for the period 1992 through June 1995 was $4.0 million.  Had we accrued such dividends on a cash basis for this time period, the total amount accrued would have been $15.1 million.  However, as a result of the redemption of the 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock in November 1998, such amounts were reduced and adjusted to $3.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively.  Our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, Section 2(a) states, “Any dividends payable with respect to the Exchangeable Preferred Stock (“Public Preferred Stock”) during the first six years after the Effective Date (November 20, 1989) may be paid (subject to restrictions under applicable state law), in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, in cash or by issuing additional fully paid and nonassessable shares of Exchangeable Preferred Stock …”  Accordingly, the Board had the discretion to pay the dividends for the referenced period in cash or by the issuance of additional shares of Public Preferred Stock.  During the period in which we stated our intent to pay PIK dividends, we stated our intention to amend our Charter to permit such payment by the issuance of additional shares of Public Preferred Stock.  In consequence, as required by applicable accounting requirements, the accrual for these dividends was recorded at the estimated fair value (as the average of the ask and bid prices) on the dividend date of the shares of Public Preferred Stock that would have been (but were not) issued.  This accrual was $9.9 million lower than the accrual would be if the intent was only to pay the dividend in cash, at that date or any later date.

In May 2006, the Board concluded that the accrual of PIK dividends for the period 1992 through June 1995 was no longer appropriate.  Since 1995, we have disclosed in the footnotes to our audited financial statements the carrying value of the accrued PIK dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for the period 1992 through June 1995 as $4.0 million, and that had we accrued cash dividends during this time period, the total amount accrued would have been $15.1 million. As stated above, such amounts were reduced and adjusted to $3.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively, due to the redemption of 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock in November 1998.  On May 12, 2006, the Board voted to confirm that our intent with respect to the payment of dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for this period changed from its previously stated intent to pay PIK dividends to that of an intent to pay cash dividends.  We therefore changed the accrual from $3.5 million to $13.4 million, the result of which was to increase our negative shareholder equity by the $9.9 million difference between those two amounts, by recording an additional $9.9 million charge to interest expense for the second quarter of 2006, resulting in a balance of $110.5 million and $108.6 million for the principal amount and all accrued dividends on the Public Preferred Stock as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. This action is considered a change in assumption that results in a change in accounting estimate as defined in ASC 250-10, which sets forth guidance concerning accounting changes and error corrections.

Note 8.
Income Taxes

The income tax provision for interim periods is determined using an estimated annual effective tax rate adjusted for discrete items, if any, which are taken into account in the quarterly period in which they occur.  We review and update our estimated annual effective tax rate each quarter.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, our estimated annual effective tax rate was primarily impacted by the permanent item related to the noncash interest of our redeemable preferred stock.  Accordingly, we recorded an approximately $1.7 million and $3.5 million income tax provision for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.  We recorded an approximately $1.0 million and $2.3 million income tax provision for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

We implemented the provisions of ASC 740 as of January 1, 2007 and determined that there were approximately $411,000 and $400,000 of unrecognized tax benefits required to be recorded as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  We believe that the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits will not significantly increase or decrease within the next 12 months.  The period for which tax years are open, 2008 to 2011, has not been extended beyond the applicable statute of limitations.

Note 9.
Commitments and Contingencies

Financial Condition and Liquidity
As described in Note 6 – Current Liabilities and Debt Obligations, we maintain a revolving Facility with Wells Fargo.  Borrowings under the Facility are collateralized by substantially all of our assets including inventory, equipment, and accounts receivable.  The amount of available borrowings fluctuates based on the underlying asset-borrowing base, in general 85% of our trade accounts receivable, as adjusted by certain reserves (as further defined in the Facility agreement). The Facility provides us with virtually all of the liquidity we require to meet our operating, investing and financing needs. Therefore, maintaining sufficient availability on the Facility is the most critical factor in our liquidity.  While a variety of factors related to sources and uses of cash, such as timeliness of accounts receivable collections, vendor credit terms, or significant collateral requirements, ultimately impact our liquidity, such factors may or may not have a direct impact on our liquidity, based on how the transactions associated with such circumstances impact our availability under the Facility.  For example, a contractual requirement to post collateral for a duration of several months, depending on the materiality of the amount, could have an immediate negative effect on our liquidity, as such a circumstance would utilize availability on the Facility without a near-term cash inflow back to us.   Likewise, the release of such collateral could have a corresponding positive effect on our liquidity, as it would represent an addition to our availability without any corresponding near-term cash outflow. Similarly, a slow-down of payments from a customer, group of customers or government payment office would not have an immediate and direct effect on our availability on the Facility unless the slowdown was material in amount and over an extended period of time.

We believe that available cash and borrowings under the amended Facility will be sufficient to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet our needs for operating expenses, debt service requirements, and projected capital expenditures through the foreseeable future.   We anticipate the continued need for a credit facility upon terms and conditions substantially similar to the amended Facility in order to meet our long term needs for operating expenses, debt service requirements, and projected capital expenditures.  Our working capital was $21.9 million and $15.2 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  Although no assurances can be given, we expect that we will be in compliance throughout the term of the amended Facility with respect to the financial and other covenants.

General
Our goal is to deliver superior IT solutions that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. We focus on secure enterprise solutions that address the unique requirements of the federal government, the military, and the intelligence community, as well as commercial enterprises that require secure solutions.  In the first quarter of 2012, our Secure Networks and Information Assurance solutions areas were merged.  Our IT solutions consist of the following:

 
Cyber Operations and Defense (formerly Secure Networks and Information Assurance) – Secure wired and wireless network solutions for Department of Defense (“DoD”) and other federal agencies.  We provide an extensive range of wired and wireless voice, data, and video secure network solutions and mobile application development to support defense and civilian missions.  In July 2011, we acquired all of the assets of IT Logistics, Inc. (“ITL”) and incorporated such assets into our Secure Networks business solutions.  Software products and consulting services to automate, streamline, and enforce IT security and risk management processes enterprise-wide.  We offer information assurance consulting services and Xacta brand GRC (governance, risk, and compliance) solutions to protect and defend IT systems, ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, and confidentiality.

 
Secure Communications (formerly Secure Messaging) – The next-generation messaging solution supporting warfighters throughout the world.  Telos Secure Information eXchange (T-6) and the AMHS platform offer secure, automated, Web-based capabilities for distributing and managing enterprise messages formatted for the Defense Messaging System as well as collaborating in real-time through video, text, whiteboarding, and document sharing.

 
Identity Management – End-to-end logical and physical security from the gate to the network.  Our identity management solutions provide control of physical access to bases, offices, workstations, and other facilities, as well as control of logical access to databases, host systems, and other IT resources.

Backlog
Our total backlog was $578.0 million and $594.2 million at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Backlog was $609.6 million at December 31, 2011.

Such backlog amounts include both funded backlog (unfilled firm orders for our products and services for which funding has been both authorized and appropriated), and unfunded backlog (firm orders for which funding has not been appropriated). Funded backlog as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $90.1 million and $114.0 million, respectively.  Funded backlog was $124.2 million at December 31, 2011.

Consolidated Results of Operations (Unaudited)
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Telos Corporation and its subsidiaries including Ubiquity.com, Inc., Xacta Corporation and Telos Delaware, Inc., all of whose issued and outstanding share capital is owned by Telos Corporation (collectively, the “Company” or “Telos” or “We”).  We have also consolidated the results of operations of Telos ID (see Note 2 – Sale of Assets) and Teloworks, Inc. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Our operating cycle involves many types of solution, product and service contracts with varying delivery schedules. Accordingly, results of a particular quarter, or quarter-to-quarter comparisons of recorded sales and operating profits, may not be indicative of future operating results and the following comparative analysis should therefore be viewed in such context.
 
 
23


We provide different solutions and revenue types under the NETCENTS (Network-Centric Solutions) contract to the U.S. Air Force.  NETCENTS is a GWAC-like IDIQ contract, therefore any government customer may utilize the NETCENTS vehicle to meet its purchasing needs. Consequently, revenue earned on the underlying NETCENTS delivery orders varies from period to period according to the customer and solution mix for the products and services delivered during a particular period, unlike a standalone contract with one separately identified customer.  The majority of our task/delivery orders have periods of performance of less than 12 months, which contributes to the variances between interim and annual reporting periods.  The NETCENTS contract was awarded in 2004 and has been modified 30 times since that time, including numerous modifications to extend the period of performance. The contract itself does not award any revenue and it states that the contract is for an indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity. While we derive a substantial amount of revenue from task/delivery orders under the NETCENTS contract, we have also been awarded other IDIQ/GWACs, including blanket purchase agreements under our GSA schedule.

The principal element of the Company’s operating expenses as a percentage of sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared with Three Months Ended June 30, 2011

Revenue increased by 36.9% to $56.3 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $41.1 million for the same period in 2011. Such increase primarily consists of an increase of $11.4 million in sales from the U.S. Air Force NETCENTS contract.  Services revenue increased to $47.3 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $33.2 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to increases in sales of $10.6 million of Cyber Operations and Defense network solutions deliverables under several NETCENTS delivery orders for Telos-installed solutions, $2.7 million of Cyber Operations and Defense information assurance deliverables, $0.8 million of Identity Management solutions, offset by a decrease in sales of $0.1 million of Secure Communications solutions.  The change in product and services revenue varies from period to period depending on the mix of solutions sold and the nature of such solutions, as well as the timing of deliverables.  Product revenue increased to $9.1 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $7.9 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to an increase in proprietary software sales of $1.2 million of Cyber Operations and Defense information assurance deliverables, $1.5 million of Identity Management solutions, offset by a decrease of $1.6 million of Cyber Operations and Defense network solutions deliverables.
 
 
24

 
Cost of sales increased by 39.9% to $41.7 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $29.8 million for the same period in 2011, primarily due to an increase in revenue of $15.2 million, coupled with an increased cost of sales as a percentage of revenue of 1.6%.  Cost of sales for services increased by $12.3 million; and as a percentage of services revenue increased by 5.1%, due to a change in the mix and nature of the programs including an increase in certain Telos-installed solutions in Cyber Operations and Defense network solutions deliverables under NETCENTS.  Cost of sales for product decreased by $0.4 million, and as a percentage of product revenue decreased by 14.3%, primarily due to decreases in product revenue for Telos-manufactured technology solutions under NETCENTS and an increase in sales of proprietary software.  The increase in cost of sales and increase in cost of sales as a percentage of revenue is not necessarily indicative of a trend as the mix of solutions sold and the nature of such solutions can vary from period to period, and further can be affected by the timing of deliverables.

Gross profit increased by 29.0% to $14.6 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $11.3 million for the same period in 2011.  Gross margin decreased to 25.9% in the second quarter of 2012, from 27.5% for the same period in 2011.  Services gross margin decreased to 24.7% from 29.8% due primarily to a change in program mix during the period as noted above.  Product gross margin increased to 32.4% from 18.1% due primarily to an increase in sales of proprietary software.

Selling, general, and administrative expense (“SG&A”) increased by 10.2% to $8.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $8.0 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to the increases in the amortization of intangible assets of $0.6 million, legal fees of $0.5 million, offset by decreases in trade show expenses of $0.2 million and accrued bonuses of $0.1 million under the quarterly bonus pool as such accruals were deferred subject to achievement of subsequent quarterly targets by division business lines.

Operating income increased 73.8% to $5.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $3.3 million for the same period in 2011, due primarily to an increase of $3.3 million in gross profit resulting from a change in the mix of the solutions sold.

Interest expense increased 14.4% to $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $1.5 million for the same period in 2011, primarily due to accretion of ITL notes, and an increase in interest expense on the Facility.

Provision for income taxes increased 81.8% to $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, from $1.0 million for the same period in 2011, which is based on the estimated annual effective tax rate applied to the pretax income incurred for the quarter, based on our expectation of pretax income for the fiscal year.

Net income attributable to Telos Corporation increased 152.9% to $2.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $0.8 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to the increase in operating income as discussed above.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared with Six Months Ended June 30, 2011

Revenue increased by 24.3% to $110.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $89.1 million in the same period in 2011. Such increase primarily consists of an increase of $18.4 million in sales from the U.S. Air Force NETCENTS contract.  Services revenue increased to $94.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $65.4 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to increases in sales of $22.7 million of Cyber Operations and Defense network solutions deliverables under several NETCENTS delivery orders for Telos-installed solutions, $5.5 million of Cyber Operations and Defense information assurance deliverables, and $1.1 million of Identity Management solutions.  The change in product and services revenue varies from period to period depending on the mix of solutions sold and the nature of such solutions, as well as the timing of deliverables.  Product revenue decreased to $16.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $23.8 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to a decreased sales in Telos-manufactured technology solutions of $9.2 million of Cyber Operations and Defense network solutions deliverables , offset by an increase in proprietary software sales of $0.8 million of Cyber Operations and Defense information assurance deliverables, and $0.7 million of Identity Management solutions.

Cost of sales increased by 24.6% to $82.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $65.9 million for the same period in 2011, due primarily to the increase in services sales as discussed above.

 
25

 
Gross profit increased by 23.4% to $28.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $23.2 million compared to the same period in 2011, due primarily to the change in the mix of the solutions sold.  Gross margin decreased 0.1% to 25.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from 26.0% in the same period in 2011.

Selling, general, and administrative expense increased 9.7% to $17.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from $15.8 million for the same period in 2011, primarily due to increases in the amortization of intangible assets of $1.2 million, legal fees of $0.8 million, offset by a decrease in accrued bonuses of $0.5 million under the quarterly bonus pool as such accruals were deferred subject to achievement of subsequent quarterly targets by division business lines.

Operating income increased 52.7% to $11.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from $7.4 million for the same period in 2011, due primarily to the increase in gross profit as noted above.

Interest expense increased 19.2% to $3.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from $2.9 million for the same period in 2011, primarily due to accretion of ITL notes, and an increase in interest expense on the Facility.

Provision for income taxes increased 49.6% to $3.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from $2.3 million for the same period in 2011, which is based on the estimated annual effective tax rate applied to the pretax income or loss for the six month period, adjusted for the income tax benefit previously provided, based on our expectation of pretax income for the fiscal year.

Net income attributable to Telos Corporation increased 99.2% to $3.8 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared to $1.9 million for the same period in 2011, primarily attributable to the increase in operating income as discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As described in more detail below, we maintain a revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) with Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Inc. (“Wells Fargo”).  Borrowings under the Facility are collateralized by substantially all of our assets including inventory, equipment, and accounts receivable.  The amount of available borrowings fluctuates based on the underlying asset-borrowing base, in general 85% of our trade accounts receivable, as adjusted by certain reserves (as further defined in the Facility agreement). The Facility provides us with virtually all of the liquidity we require to meet our operating, investing and financing needs. Therefore maintaining sufficient availability on the Facility is the most critical factor in our liquidity.  While a variety of factors related to sources and uses of cash, such as timeliness of accounts receivable collections, vendor credit terms, or significant collateral requirements, ultimately impact our liquidity, such factors may or may not have a direct impact on our liquidity, based on how the transactions associated with such circumstances impact our availability under the Facility.  For example, a contractual requirement to post collateral for a duration of several months, depending on the materiality of the amount, could have an immediate negative effect on our liquidity, as such a circumstance would utilize availability on the Facility without a near-term cash inflow back to us.   Likewise, the release of such collateral could have a corresponding positive effect on our liquidity, as it would represent an addition to our availability without any corresponding near-term cash outflow. Similarly, a slow-down of payments from a customer, group of customers or government payment office would not have an immediate and direct effect on our availability on the Facility unless the slowdown was material in amount and over an extended period of time. Management believes that the Company’s borrowing capacity is sufficient to fund our capital and liquidity needs for the foreseeable future.

Cash provided by operating activities was $5.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $6.6 million for the same period in 2011.  Cash provided by or used in operating activities is primarily driven by the Company’s operating income, the timing of receipt of customer payments, and the timing of its payments to vendors and employees, and the timing of inventory turnover, adjusted for certain non cash items that do not impact cash flows from operating activities.  Additionally, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income was $4.7 million compared to net income of $2.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Cash used in investing activities was approximately $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, due to the purchase of property and equipment.

Cash used in financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $5.7 million, primarily attributable to the repayment of ITL note of $3.5 million, net repayments to the Facility of $0.9 million, and distributions of $0.6 million to the Class B Member of Telos ID.  Cash used in financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $6.2 million, primarily attributable to the redemption of senior preferred stock of $2.1 million, net repayments to the Facility of $3.1 million, and distributions of $0.6 million to the Class B Member of Telos ID.

Additionally, our capital structure consists of redeemable preferred stock and common stock. The capital structure is complex and requires an understanding of the terms of the instruments, certain restrictions on scheduled payments and redemptions of the various instruments, and the interrelationship of the instruments especially as it relates to the subordination hierarchy. Therefore a thorough understanding of how our capital structure impacts our liquidity is necessary and accordingly we have disclosed the relevant information about each instrument as follows:

Senior Revolving Credit Facility
On May 17, 2010, we amended our $25 million revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) with Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Inc. (“Wells Fargo”).  Under the amended terms, the maturity date of the Facility was extended to May 17, 2014 from September 30, 2011, the limit on the Facility was increased to $30 million from $25 million, and a term loan component of $7.5 million was added to the Facility.  The principal of the term loan component will be repaid in quarterly installments of $93,750, with a final installment of the unpaid principal amount payable on May 17, 2014.  The interest rate on the term loan component is the same as that on the revolving credit component of the Facility, which was changed to the higher of the Wells Fargo Bank “prime rate” plus 1%, the Federal Funds rate plus 1.5%, or the 3-month LIBOR rate plus 2%. In lieu of having interest charged at the foregoing rates, the Company may elect to have the interest on all or a portion of the advances on the revolving credit component be a rate based on the LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Facility) plus 3.75%.  As of June 30, 2012, we have not elected the LIBOR Rate option.  Borrowings under the Facility continue to be collateralized by substantially all of the Company’s assets including inventory, equipment, and accounts receivable.   The financial covenants were updated to include minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Facility), minimum recurring revenue and a limit on capital expenditures.  The Facility’s anniversary fee was discontinued and the collateral management fee was reduced.

On September 27, 2010, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of up to $2.5 million of the aggregate value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock at a discount from par value of at least 10%.  On September 27, 2010 and on April 8, 2011, a portion of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed (see Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock).

On May 11, 2012, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, under certain conditions, at a discount from par value plus accrued dividends of at least 10%, at an aggregate price not to exceed $4.0 million.  On May 16, 2012, a portion of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock was redeemed (see Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock).

As of June 30, 2012, the interest rate on the Facility was 4.25%.   We incurred interest expense in the amount of $0.2 million and $0.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, and $0.1 million and $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, on the Facility.

The Facility has various covenants that may, among other things, affect our ability to merge with another entity, sell or transfer certain assets, pay dividends and make other distributions beyond certain limitations.  As of June 30, 2012, we were in compliance with the Facility’s financial covenants, including EBITDA covenants.  The term loan component of the Facility amortizes at 5% per year, or $0.4 million, which is paid in quarterly installments and is classified as current on the consolidated balance sheets.  The remaining balance of the term loan, or $6.4 million, and the revolving component of the Facility mature over the period 2012 through 2014.

At June 30, 2012, we had outstanding borrowings of $19.1 million on the Facility, which included the $6.8 million term loan, of which $0.4 million was short-term.   At December 31, 2011, we had outstanding borrowings of $17.9 million on the Facility, which included the $6.9 million term loan, of which $0.4 million was short-term.   At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we had unused borrowing availability on the Facility of $7.3 million and $5.3 million, respectively.  The effective weighted average interest rates on the outstanding borrowings under the Facility were 5.3% and 6.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The effective weighted average rates (including interest and various fees paid whether capitalized or expensed pursuant to the Facility agreement and related amendments) on the outstanding borrowings under the Facility were 5.6% and 7.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Subsequently, after obtaining the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, on or about August 24, 2012, we intend to redeem 36.0% of those shares with a carrying value of $2.2 million, for $2.0 million, which will result in a gain of approximately $0.2 million.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding will be 433 shares and 607shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

Notes payable – IT Logistics, Inc.
  On July 1, 2011, we entered into, and concurrently completed the transactions contemplated by, the Asset Purchase Agreement with IT Logistics Inc., an Alabama corporation (“ITL”), and its sole stockholder, see Note 3 – Acquisition of IT Logistics, Inc.  We purchased certain assets relating to the operation of ITL’s business of providing survey, design, engineering, and installation services of inside and outside plant secure networking infrastructure and program management expertise.  Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, Telos assumed certain liabilities of ITL, principally liabilities that accrued on or after July 1, 2011, under certain contracts assumed by Telos.
 
The purchase price for the assets (in addition to the assumed liabilities described above) consisted of (1) $8 million payable on July 1, 2011, (2) $7 million payable in ten monthly payments of $700,000, together with interest on the unpaid balance of such amount at the rate of 0.50% per annum, beginning on August 1, 2011 and on the first day of each subsequent month thereafter, and (3) a subordinated promissory note (the “Note”) with a principal amount of $15 million.  The Note accrues interest at a rate of 6.0% per annum beginning November 1, 2012, and is payable on July 1, 2041.  The entire unpaid principal balance plus accrued and unpaid interest is due and payable upon the occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Note), provided that all “Senior Obligations” are satisfied prior to or concurrent with such Change in Control.  For purposes of the Note, “Senior Obligations” means, collectively, all (1) outstanding indebtedness of Telos, and (2) amounts due to the holders of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Series A-1 Redeemable Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, and 12% Cumulative Exchangeable Preferred Stock (or any securities redeemable or exchangeable for any of the foregoing) upon a Change in Control, upon the voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the affairs of Telos, or otherwise.

At June 30, 2012, the $7 million payable in ten installments had been fully paid.  Additionally, the Note was recorded at its fair value of $11.7 million and has been accreted to its current carrying value of $12.4 million as of June 30, 2012.  The Note will be accreted to its face value over 60 months, when we estimate repayment.  We incurred interest expense in the amount of $1,000 and $4,000 on the $7 million payable in ten installments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.
 
Redeemable Preferred Stock
 We currently have two primary classes of redeemable preferred stock - Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock and Public Preferred Stock.  These classes of stock carry cumulative dividend rates of 14.125% and 12%, respectively.  We accrue dividends on both classes of redeemable preferred stock and provided for accretion related to the Public Preferred Stock.  As of December 31, 2008, the Public Preferred Stock was fully accreted.  The total carrying amount of redeemable preferred stock, including accumulated and unpaid dividends was $116.7 million and $116.9 million at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  We recorded dividends of $1.0 million and $2.1 million for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, on the two classes of redeemable preferred stock, and such amounts have been included in interest expense.

Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock
The Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is senior to all other outstanding equity of the Company, including the Public Preferred Stock. The Series A-1 ranks on a parity with the Series A-2.  The components of the authorized Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock are 1,250 shares of Series A-1 and 1,750 shares of Series A-2 Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, each with $.01 par value. The Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock carries a cumulative per annum dividend rate of 14.125% of its liquidation value of $1,000 per share. The dividends are payable semiannually on June 30 and December 31 of each year. We have not declared dividends on our Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock since its issuance. The liquidation preference of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is the face amount of the Series A-1 and A-2 ($1,000 per share), plus all accrued and unpaid dividends.

Due to the terms of the Facility and of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, we have been and continue to be precluded from paying any accrued and unpaid dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, other than described below. Certain holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock have entered into standby agreements whereby, among other things, those holders will not demand any payments in respect of dividends or redemptions of their instruments and the maturity dates of the instruments have been extended.  As a result of such standby agreements, as of June 30, 2012, instruments held by Toxford Corporation (“Toxford”), the holder of 76.4% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, will mature on August 31, 2014.

On September 27, 2010, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of up to $2.5 million of the aggregate value of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock under certain conditions, the most significant being the redemption at a discount from par value of at least 10%.  In accordance with the terms of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, however, any redemption must be pro rata among the holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock unless such holders waive their rights to have their shares redeemed.  Due to the limitations, contractual restrictions, and agreements described above, the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock is classified as noncurrent as of June 30, 2012.

On September 27, 2010, with the consent and waiver of the remaining holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 4.9% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $522,000 was redeemed for $430,000, resulting in a gain in the amount of $92,000, representing a discount of approximately 17.5%, which was recorded in other income on the consolidated statements of operations.

On or about March 15, 2011, Mr. John Porter, the beneficial owner of 44.0% of our Class A Common Stock, acquired a total of 75 shares and 105 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, from other holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  As of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter held 6.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  In the aggregate, as of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter and Toxford held a total of 560 shares and 784 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, or 82.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  Mr. Porter is the sole stockholder of Toxford.

On April 8, 2011, with the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 22.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $2.3 million was redeemed for $2.1 million, resulting in a gain in the amount of approximately $0.2 million, representing a discount of 10%, which was recorded in other income on the consolidated statements of operations.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 923 shares and 1,292 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.
 
On May 11, 2012, the Facility was amended to allow for the redemption of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, under certain conditions, at a discount from par value plus accrued dividends of at least 10%, at an aggregate price not to exceed $4.0 million.  On May 16, 2012, with the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, 26.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock with a carrying value of $2.2 million was redeemed for $2.0 million, resulting in a gain in the amount of approximately $0.2 million, representing a discount of 10%, which was recorded in other income on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 677 shares and 947 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

At June 30, 2012, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 677 shares and 947 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.    At December 31, 2011, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding was 923 shares and 1,292 shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, cumulative undeclared, unpaid dividends relating to Senior Redeemable Preferred stock totaled $4.5 million and $6.0 million, respectively.  We accrued dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock of $64,000 and $142,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $80,000 and $179,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, which were reported as interest expense.  Prior to the effective date of ASC 480-10, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” on July 1, 2003, such dividends were charged to stockholders’ deficit.

Subsequently, after obtaining the consent of the holders of the outstanding shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, on or about August 24, 2012, we intend to redeem 36.0% of those shares with a carrying value of $2.2 million, for $2.0 million, which will result in a gain of approximately $0.2 million.  Subsequent to such redemption, the total number of shares of Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock issued and outstanding will be 433 shares and 607shares for Series A-1 and Series A-2, respectively.

Public Preferred Stock

Redemption Provisions
Since 1991, no dividends have been declared or paid on our Public Preferred Stock, based upon our interpretation of restrictions in our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, filed with the State of Maryland on January 5, 1992, as amended on April 14, 1995 (“Charter”), limitations in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument, specific dividend payment restrictions in the Facility to which the Public Preferred Stock is subject, other senior obligations, and Maryland law limitations in existence prior to October 1, 2009.  Pursuant to their terms, we were scheduled, but not required, to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in five annual tranches during the period 2005 through 2009. However, due to our substantial senior obligations, limitations set forth in the covenants in the Facility, foreseeable capital and operational requirements, and restrictions and prohibitions of our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, we were unable to meet the redemption schedule set forth in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument. Moreover, the Public Preferred Stock is not payable on demand, nor callable, for failure to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in accordance with the redemption schedule set forth in the instrument. Therefore, we classify these securities as noncurrent liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

We are parties with certain of our subsidiaries to the Facility agreement, whose term expires on May 17, 2014.  Under the Facility, we agreed that, so long as any credit under the Facility is available and until full and final payment of the obligations under the Facility, we would not make any distribution or declare or pay any dividends (other than common stock) on our stock, or purchase, acquire, or redeem any stock, or exchange any stock for indebtedness, or retire any stock.

Accordingly, as stated above, we will continue to classify the entirety of our obligation to redeem the Public Preferred Stock as a long-term obligation.  The Facility prohibits, among other things, the redemption of any stock, common or preferred, other than as described above.  The Public Preferred Stock by its terms cannot be redeemed if doing so would violate the terms of an agreement regarding the borrowing of funds or the extension of credit which is binding upon us or any of our subsidiaries, and it does not include any other provisions that would otherwise require any acceleration of the redemption of or amortization payments with respect to the Public Preferred Stock.  Thus, the Public Preferred Stock is not and will not be due on demand, nor callable, within twelve months from June 30, 2012.  This classification is consistent with ASC 210-10, “Balance Sheet” and 470-10, “Debt” and the FASB ASC Master Glossary definition of “Current Liabilities.”

 
30

 
ASC 210-10 and the FASB ASC Master Glossary define current liabilities as follows: The term current liabilities is used principally to designate obligations whose liquidation is reasonably expected to require the use of existing resources properly classifiable as current assets, or the creation of other current liabilities. As a balance sheet category, the classification is intended to include obligations for items which have entered into the operating cycle, such as payables incurred in the acquisition of materials and supplies to be used in the production of goods or in providing services to be offered for sale; collections received in advance of the delivery of goods or performance of services; and debts that arise from operations directly related to the operating cycle, such as accruals for wages, salaries, commissions, rentals, royalties, and income and other taxes. Other liabilities whose regular and ordinary liquidation is expected to occur within a relatively short period of time, usually twelve months, are also intended for inclusion, such as short-term debts arising from the acquisition of capital assets, serial maturities of long-term obligations, amounts required to be expended within one year under sinking fund provisions, and agency obligations arising from the collection or acceptance of cash or other assets for the account of third persons.

ASC 470-10 provides the following: The current liability classification is also intended to include obligations that, by their terms, are due on demand or will be due on demand within one year (or operating cycle, if longer) from the balance sheet date, even though liquidation may not be expected within that period.  It is also intended to include long-term obligations that are or will be callable by the creditor either because the debtor’s violation of a provision of the debt agreement at the balance sheet date makes the obligation callable or because the violation, if not cured within a specified grace period, will make the obligation callable.

If, pursuant to the terms of the Public Preferred Stock, we do not redeem the Public Preferred Stock in accordance with the scheduled redemptions described above, the terms of the Public Preferred Stock require us to discharge our obligation to redeem the Public Preferred Stock as soon as we are financially capable and legally permitted to do so.  Therefore, by its very terms, the Public Preferred Stock is not due on demand or callable for failure to make a scheduled payment pursuant to its redemption provisions and is properly classified as a noncurrent liability.

Dividend Provisions
We pay dividends on the Public Preferred Stock when and if declared by the Board of Directors. The Public Preferred Stock accrues a semi-annual dividend at the annual rate of 12% ($1.20) per share, based on the liquidation preference of $10 per share and is fully cumulative. Dividends in additional shares of the Public Preferred Stock for 1990 and 1991 were paid at the rate of 6% of a share for each $.60 of such dividends not paid in cash. For the cash dividends payable since December 1, 1995, the Company has accrued $78.7 million and $76.8 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, which was recorded as interest expense.

The carrying value of the accrued Paid-in-Kind (“PIK”) dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for the period 1992 through June 1995 was $4.0 million.  Had we accrued such dividends on a cash basis for this time period, the total amount accrued would have been $15.1 million.  However, as a result of the redemption of the 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock in November 1998, such amounts were reduced and adjusted to $3.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively.  Our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, Section 2(a) states, “Any dividends payable with respect to the Exchangeable Preferred Stock (“Public Preferred Stock”) during the first six years after the Effective Date (November 20, 1989) may be paid (subject to restrictions under applicable state law), in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, in cash or by issuing additional fully paid and nonassessable shares of Exchangeable Preferred Stock …”  Accordingly, the Board had the discretion to pay the dividends for the referenced period in cash or by the issuance of additional shares of Public Preferred Stock.  During the period in which we stated our intent to pay PIK dividends, we stated our intention to amend our Charter to permit such payment by the issuance of additional shares of Public Preferred Stock.  In consequence, as required by applicable accounting requirements, the accrual for these dividends was recorded at the estimated fair value (as the average of the ask and bid prices) on the dividend date of the shares of Public Preferred Stock that would have been (but were not) issued.  This accrual was $9.9 million lower than the accrual would be if the intent was only to pay the dividend in cash, at that date or any later date.

 
31


In May 2006, the Board concluded that the accrual of PIK dividends for the period 1992 through June 1995 was no longer appropriate.  Since 1995, we have disclosed in the footnotes to our audited financial statements the carrying value of the accrued PIK dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for the period 1992 through June 1995 as $4.0 million, and that had we accrued cash dividends during this time period, the total amount accrued would have been $15.1 million. As stated above, such amounts were reduced and adjusted to $3.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively, due to the redemption of 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock in November 1998.  On May 12, 2006, the Board voted to confirm that our intent with respect to the payment of dividends on the Public Preferred Stock for this period changed from its previously stated intent to pay PIK dividends to that of an intent to pay cash dividends.  We therefore changed the accrual from $3.5 million to $13.4 million, the result of which was to increase our negative shareholder equity by the $9.9 million difference between those two amounts, by recording an additional $9.9 million charge to interest expense for the second quarter of 2006, resulting in a balance of $110.5 million and $108.6 million for the principal amount and all accrued dividends on the Public Preferred Stock as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. This action is considered a change in assumption that results in a change in accounting estimate as defined in ASC 250-10, which sets forth guidance concerning accounting changes and error corrections.

Borrowing Capacity
Our working capital was $21.9 million and $15.2 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

At June 30, 2012, we had outstanding debt and long-term obligations of $152.3 million, consisting of $18.7 million under the Facility, $12.4 million notes payable to ITL, $4.4 million in capital lease obligations and $116.7 million in redeemable preferred stock classified as liability pursuant to ASC 480-10, and $0.1 million in other liabilities.

We believe that available cash and borrowings under the Facility will be sufficient to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet our needs for operating expenses, debt service requirements, and projected capital expenditures for the foreseeable future.   We anticipate the continued need for a credit facility upon terms and conditions substantially similar to the Facility in order to meet our long-term needs for operating expenses, debt service requirements, and projected capital expenditures.  Although no assurances can be given, we expect that we will be in compliance throughout the term of the Facility with respect to the financial and other covenants in the Facility agreement.

Critical Accounting Policies
There have been no changes to our critical accounting policies as disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 as filed with the SEC on March 30, 2012.

We are exposed to interest rate volatility with regard to our variable rate debt obligations under the Facility.  As of June 30, 2012, interest on the Facility is charged at 4.25%.  The effective weighted average interest rates on the outstanding borrowings under the Facility were 5.3% and 6.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The Facility had an outstanding balance of $19.1 million at June 30, 2012.

Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock
We have not declared dividends on our Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, Series A-1 and A-2, since issuance.  At June 30, 2012, total undeclared unpaid dividends accrued for financial reporting purposes are $4.5 million for the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  We were required to redeem all shares and accrued dividends outstanding on October 31, 2005. Due to the terms of the Facility and of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, we have been and continue to be precluded from paying any accrued and unpaid dividends on the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  Certain holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock have entered into standby agreements whereby, among other things, those holders will not demand any payments in respect of dividends or redemptions of their instruments and the maturity dates of the instruments have been extended.  As a result of such standby agreements, as of June 30, 2012, instruments held by Toxford Corporation (“Toxford”), the holder of 76.4% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock, will mature on August 31, 2014.  On or about March 15, 2011, Mr. John Porter acquired a total of 75 shares and 105 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, from other holders of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  As of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter held 6.3% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  In the aggregate, as of June 30, 2012, Mr. Porter and Toxford held a total of 560 shares and 784 shares of Series A-1 and Series A-2 Redeemable Preferred Stock, respectively, or 82.7% of the Senior Redeemable Preferred Stock.  Mr. Porter is the sole stockholder of Toxford.

12% Cumulative Exchangeable Redeemable Preferred Stock
Through November 21, 1995, we had the option to pay dividends in additional shares of Public Preferred Stock in lieu of cash (provided there were no restrictions on payment as further discussed below). As more fully explained in the next paragraph, dividends are payable by us, when and if declared by the Board of Directors, commencing June 1, 1990, and on each six month anniversary thereof. Dividends in additional shares of the Preferred Stock for 1990 and 1991 were paid at the rate of 6% of a share for each $.60 of such dividends not paid in cash. Dividends for the years 1992 through 1994, and for the dividend payable June 1, 1995, were accrued under the assumption that such dividends would be paid in additional shares of preferred stock and were valued at $4.0 million. Had we accrued these dividends on a cash basis, the total amount accrued would have been $15.1 million.  However, as a result of the redemption of the 410,000 shares of the Public Preferred Stock in November 1998, such amounts were reduced and adjusted to $3.5 million and $13.4 million, respectively.  As more fully disclosed in Note 7 – Redeemable Preferred Stock, in the second quarter of 2006, we accrued an additional $9.9 million in interest expense to reflect our intent to pay cash dividends in lieu of stock dividends, for the years 1992 through 1994, and for the dividend payable June 1, 1995.  We have accrued $78.7 million and $76.8 million in cash dividends as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.
 
Since 1991, no other dividends were declared or paid on our Public Preferred Stock, based upon our interpretation of restrictions in our Articles of Amendment and Restatement, filed with the State of Maryland on January 5, 1992, as amended on April 14, 1995 (“Charter”), limitations in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument, specific dividend payment restrictions in the Facility, other senior obligations and Maryland law limitations in existence prior to October 1, 2009. Pursuant to their terms, we were scheduled, but not required, to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in five annual tranches during the period 2005 through 2009. However, due to our substantial senior obligations, limitations set forth in the covenants in the Facility, foreseeable capital and operational requirements, and restrictions and prohibitions of our Charter, we were unable to meet the redemption schedule set forth in the terms of the Public Preferred Stock instrument.   Moreover, the Public Preferred Stock is not payable on demand, nor callable, for failure to redeem the Public Preferred Stock in accordance with the redemption schedule set forth in the instrument. Therefore, we classify these securities as noncurrent liabilities in the balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.
