Falls Church, VA We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Irving Burton Associates, Inc., which comprise the balance sheet as of December 31, 2019 and the related statements of income and comprehensive income, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Irving Burton Associates, Inc. as of December 31, 2019, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -7- NOTE A - ORGANIZATION Irving Burton Associates, Inc. (the Company) was incorporated on July 1, 1981 in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Company provides financial management and technical support services to agencies of the federal government and the private sector in the United States of America. NOTE B - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Basis of Accounting The books of the Company are maintained on the accrual basis of accounting, whereby revenues are recognized when they are earned and expenses are recognized when they are incurred. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Revenue Recognition Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and all subsequent amendments to the ASU (collectively, “ASC 606”), and have concluded that conforming to the new standard had no impact on revenue recognized in the Company’s financial statements. ASC 606 provides for a five-step model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers as follows: (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies the performance obligation. Revenue is measured based on a consideration specified in a contract with a customer. The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation over a period of time as the services are provided. The Company provides services, primarily for agencies of the U.S. Government, under time and materials and fixed price contracts. Revenue from time and material projects is recognized based on fixed hourly rates for direct-labor hours expended plus material and other reimbursable expenses. Revenue from fixed price contracts is billed monthly as the services are performed and recognized using a proportionate performance model. Anticipated losses on contracts are recognized as soon as they become known and are estimable. Because of inherent uncertainties in estimate costs, it is at least reasonably possible that the estimates will change within the near term. The Company’s contracts contain one or multiple performance obligations. The transaction price is the amount of consideration to which we expect to be received in exchange for transferring services to the customer. When a contract has a single performance obligation, the entire transaction price is attributed to that performance obligation.


 
Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -8- NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) Revenue Recognition (continued) Because the Company has the right to invoice customers in amounts that correspond directly with the value of performance to date, disclosure of further information about remaining performance obligations under these service contracts is not required. Changes that are accounted for as an adjustment to existing performance obligations are allocated on the same basis at contract inception. Otherwise, changes are accounted for as separate performance obligations and the separate transaction price is allocated as discussed above. A contract asset is recorded when revenue is recognized in advance of the right to bill and receive consideration. The contract asset will decrease as services are provided and billed. When consideration is received in advance of the delivery of goods or services, a contract liability is recorded. Reductions in the contract liability will be recorded as the performance obligations are satisfied. Payments to the Company on government cost reimbursable contracts are based on provisional, or estimated indirect rates, which are subject to an annual audit by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). The cost audits result in the negation and determination of the final indirect cost rates that the Company may use for the period(s) audited. The final rates, if different from the provisional rates, may create an additional receivable or liability for the Company. Cash and Cash Equivalents The Company considers all highly-liquid short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash and cash on deposits with banks. The cash balance frequently exceed federally insured limits. Management believes the Company is not exposed to significant risk on its cash accounts. Investments Investments at December 31, 2019 consisted of mutual funds classified as available-for-sale debt securities and recorded at fair value. Unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related tax effects, are excluded from earnings and are reported as accumulated other comprehensive income until realized. Realized gains and losses from the sale of available-for-sale securities are determined on a specific-identification basis. A decline in the market value of any available-for-sale or held-to-maturity security below cost, that is deemed to be other-than-temporary, results in an impairment to reduce the carrying amount to fair value. To determine whether impairment is other-than-temporary, the Company considers all available information relevant to the collectability of the security, including past events, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts when developing estimate of cash flows expected to be collected. Evidence considered in this assessment includes the reasons for the impairment, the severity, and duration of the impairment, changes in value subsequent to year-end, forecasted performance of the investee, and the general market condition in the geographic area or industry the investee operates in.


 
Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -9- NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) Fair Value Reporting Unless disclosed otherwise, the Company estimates that the fair value of all financial and non-financial instruments at December 31, 2019 does not differ materially from the aggregate carrying values recorded in the accompanying balance sheets. The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is necessarily required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value, and, accordingly the estimates are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that the Company could realize in a current market exchange. Accounts Receivable The Company records accounts receivable net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance is determined based on a review of the estimated collectability of the specific accounts, plus a general provision based on historical loss experience and existing economic conditions. Accounts receivable are considered past due once they are more than 120 days old. Uncollectible amounts are charged off against the allowance for doubtful accounts once management determines an amount, or a portion thereof, to be worthless. The majority of the Company's accounts receivable is due from agencies of the federal government. Bad debt expense for the year ended December 31, 2019 totaled $0. There were no accounts receivable written off during the year ended December 31, 2019. Property and Equipment Property and equipment is stated at cost and is depreciated over the estimated useful lives of the assets (generally three to seven years) using the straight-line method. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs which do not significantly prolong the useful lives of the assets are charged to expense as incurred. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the lease term or the life of the asset. Income Taxes The Company has elected under the Internal Revenue Code to be taxed as an S Corporation. Accordingly, no provision has been made for federal income taxes, as these taxes are the responsibility of the stockholders. Certain states do not recognize S Corporation tax treatment. Under the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes (ASC 740), companies are required to disclose unrecognized tax benefits. Management has evaluated the effect of the guidance provided by ASC 740, and all other tax positions that could have a significant effect on the financial statements, and determined the Company did not have an uncertain tax position at December 31, 2019 that require disclosure or recognition. Generally, the Company's tax returns remain open for three years for federal income tax examination and four years for state income tax examination.


 
Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -10- NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) New Accounting Pronouncements Adopted in 2019 In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance that supersedes previously issued guidance on revenue recognition and will apply to the Company. The main principle of this new guidance focuses on the contract between a vendor and a customer for the provision of goods and services. It attempts to depict the exchange of rights and obligations between the parties in the pattern of revenue recognition based on the consideration for which the vendor is entitled. To accomplish this objective, the standard requires five basic steps: (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies the performance obligation. The new standard is effective for nonpublic entities for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company has adopted Topic 606 effective January 1, 2019, using a modified retrospective transition approach and have concluded that conforming to the new standard had no impact on revenue recognized in the Company’s financial statements. The Corporation applied the new revenue standard to all contracts not yet completed or substantially completed as of January 1, 2019. In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, and subsequently issued related ASU 2018-03, Technical Corrections and Improvements to Financial Instruments—Overall (Subtopic 825- 10). These standards amend certain aspects of accounting and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. The Company has adopted this new standard in these financial statements. The accounting of the Company’s investments in debt securities was not impacted. In February 2018, the FASB issued guidance related to reclassification of certain tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income. The standard addresses a financial reporting issue related to the tax effects that may become stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). The standard is effective for the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The standard was applied using the period of adoption method in which the income tax effects of the TCJA related to items remaining in accumulated other comprehensive income are recognized. The Company has adopted this new standard in these financial statements. Recent Accounting Pronouncement Not Yet Adopted In February 2016, the FASB issued guidance related to leasing for both the lessees and the lessors. The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record the ROU asset and a lease liability on the statement of financial position for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of activities. The new standard is effective for the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company will evaluate the effect that adoption of this new standard will have on the financial statements.


 
Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -11- NOTE C - CONCENTRATIONS OF CREDIT RISK Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, are principally trade receivables. Approximately 94% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2019 was from three government agencies. Approximately 94% of the accounts receivable as of December 31, 2019 was from the same three agencies. The Company maintains cash balances that, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. Management does not believe this results in any significant risk. NOTE D - ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE Accounts receivable consists of the following at December 31, 2019: 2019 Billed accounts receivable $ 2,225,454 Unbilled accounts receivable 1,993,959 4,219,413 Allowance for doubtful accounts ( 7,127) $ 4,212,286 Unbilled receivables are generated by differences between invoicing timing and the Company’s performance based methodology used for revenue recognition purposes and variances between the current approved provisional billing rates and actual rates incurred at the end of the fiscal year, but not billed or yet eligible to be billed. Unbilled accounts receivable of $1,946,525 as of December 31, 2019 represents amounts to be billed in a subsequent month in accordance with the customer’s contract. Remaining balances include revenues in excess of funding, billable upon receipt of contractual modification or other modification.

Irving Burton Associates, Inc. NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for Year Ended December 31, 2019 See independent auditor’s report. -13- NOTE H - EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT PLAN The Company sponsors a 401(k) employee retirement plan, which covers substantially all employees. It allows employees to make salary deferrals up to the lesser of a fixed percentage of pay or federal limits. The Company makes an annual contribution to the plan in such amounts as determined by the Board of Directors. Employer contributions vest on a three-year cliff where employees are 100% vested in their third year of service. The Company contribution to the plan was $418,829 for the years ended December 31, 2019. NOTE I - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND INVESTMENTS The framework for measuring fair value provides a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under FASB ASC 820 are described below: Level 1: Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access. Level 2: Inputs to the valuation methodology include (a) quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; (b) quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets; (c) inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; and (d) inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means. If the asset or liability has a specified (contractual) term, the Level 2 input must be observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. Level 3: Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement. The asset’s or liability’s fair value measurement level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Valuation techniques maximize the use of relevant observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for assets measured at fair value. Mutual Funds These funds are valued at the daily closing price as reported by the fund. Mutual funds held by the Plan are generally open-end mutual funds that are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These funds are required to publish their daily net asset value (NAV) and to transact at that price. The mutual funds held by the Company are deemed to be actively traded. The availability of market data is monitored to assess the appropriate classification of investments within the fair value hierarchy. Changes in economic conditions or valuation techniques may require the transfer of investments from one fair value level to another. In such instances, the transfer is reported at the end of the reporting period. The Company evaluates the significance of transfers between levels based upon the nature of the investment and size of the transfer relative to total net assets available for benefits.
