Discontinued Operations
 
Laboratory and Forensic Safety Products Business
 
On October 19, 2011, Misonix sold its Laboratory and Forensic Safety Products business, which comprised substantially all of the Laboratory and Scientific Products segment, to Mystaire, Inc. for $1.5 million in cash plus a potential additional payment of up to an aggregate $500,000 based upon 30% of net sales in excess of $2.0 million for each of the three years following the closing (the “earn-out”). The earn-out will not be factored into the gain on sale until it is earned by Misonix. As of December 31, 2013, no earn-out has been recorded.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Technology
 
In consideration for the May 2010 sale of the rights to its high intensity focused ultrasound technology to USHIFU LLC (“USHIFU”), Misonix will receive up to approximately $5.8 million, paid out of an earn-out of 7% of gross revenues received by USHIFU related to the business being sold up to the time the Company has received the first $3 million and thereafter 5% of the gross revenues up to the $5.8 million. Commencing 90 days after each December 31st and beginning December 31, 2011 the payments will be the greater of (a) $250,000 or (b) 7% of gross revenues received up to the time the Company has received the first $3 million and thereafter 5% of gross revenues up to the $5.8 million. Total payments through December 31, 2013 were $504,788.

Accounts Receivable
 
Accounts receivable, principally trade, are generally due within 30 to 90 days and are stated at amounts due from customers, net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations and adjusts credit limits based upon payment history and the customer’s current credit worthiness, as determined by a review of their current credit information. The Company continuously monitors aging reports, collections and payments from customers and maintains a provision for estimated credit losses based upon historical experience and any specific customer collection issues that have been identified. While such credit losses have historically been within expectations and the provisions established, the Company cannot guarantee that the same credit loss rates will be experienced in the future. The Company writes off accounts receivable when they become uncollectible.
 
Reclassifications
 
Certain prior period amounts in the accompanying financial statements and related notes have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation.

2. Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock
 
Basic net income (loss) per common share (“basic EPS”) is computed by dividing income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted income/(loss) per common share (“diluted EPS”) is computed by dividing income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding (consisting of outstanding common stock options) for the period.

Excluded from the calculations of diluted EPS are options to purchase 543,080 shares of common stock for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The excluded shares are any share for which the average stock price for the quarter or year–to-date is less than the exercise price of the outstanding options in the period in which the Company has net income.
 
Diluted EPS for the six months ended December 31, 2013 and six and three months ended December 31, 2012 presented is the same as basic EPS as the inclusion of the effect of common share equivalents then outstanding would be anti-dilutive. For this reason, excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS are outstanding options to purchase 1,831,829 and 1,922,905 shares of common stock for the six months ended December 31, 2013 and the three and six months ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

3. Comprehensive (Loss)/Income
 
Total comprehensive loss, which includes results of discontinued operations, was $424,664 and $608,935 for the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Total comprehensive gain/(loss) was $459,338 and ($653,769) for the three month period ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. There are no components of comprehensive (loss)/income other than net (loss)/income for all periods presented.

4. Stock-Based Compensation
 
Stock options are granted with exercise prices not less than the fair market value of our common stock at the time of the grant, with an exercise term (as determined by the committee administering the applicable option plan (the “Committee”)) not to exceed 10 years. The Committee determines the vesting period for the Company’s stock options. Generally, such stock options have vesting periods of immediate to four years. Certain option awards provide for accelerated vesting upon meeting specific retirement, death or disability criteria and upon a change in control. During the six month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company granted options to purchase 324,000 and 342,500 shares of the Company’s common stock, respectively.
 
Stock-based compensation expense for the six month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $325,000 and $221,000, respectively. Compensation expense is recognized in the general and administrative expenses line item of the Company’s consolidated statements of operations on a straight-line basis over the vesting periods. As of December 31, 2013, there was approximately $2,143,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock-based compensation arrangements to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 3.2 years.
 
Cash in the amount of $130,555 was received from the exercise of stock options for the six months ended December 31, 2013.

The fair values of the options granted during the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 were estimated on the date of the grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model on the basis of the following weighted average assumptions during the respective periods:

The expected option term is based upon the number of years the Company estimates the option will be outstanding based on historical exercises and terminations. The expected volatility for the expected life of the options is determined using historical price changes of the Company’s stock over a period equal to that of the expected life of the options. The risk free rate is based upon the U.S. Treasury yield in effect at the time of the grant. The expected dividend yield is 0% as the Company has historically not declared dividends and does not expect to declare any in the future.

5. Income Taxes
 
For the six months ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded an income tax expense in continuing operations of $5,500.
 
For the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the effective rate of (1%) on continuing operations varied from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to permanent book tax differences, state taxes and a change in the valuation allowance.
 
The Company established a valuation against the deferred tax asset in prior years when management concluded that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax asset may not be fully realized. Management’s deferred tax asset assessment is unchanged as of December 31, 2013.
 
As of December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, the Company has no material unrecognized tax benefits or accrued interest and penalties.

8. Commitments and Contingencies
 
The Company and its subsidiaries are from time to time involved in ordinary and routine litigation. Management presently believes that the ultimate outcome of these proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or result of operations. Nevertheless, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties and an unfavorable ruling could occur.  An unfavorable ruling could include money damages and in such event, could result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s results of operations in the year in which the ruling occurs.
 
On July 19, 2011, Misonix entered into a Distribution Agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) with Puricore, Inc. (“Puricore”). Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement, the Company had been granted the right to distribute PuriCore’s Vashe ® solution products in the United States, on a private label basis and known as the Misonix Soma product, as an antibacterial, antimicrobial irrigating solution for the treatment of human wound care in conjunction with therapeutic ultrasonic procedures (the “Field”). PuriCore had agreed, subject to modification, not to sell the products that were the subject of the Distribution Agreement (the “Licensed Products”) to any other therapeutic ultrasound company for distribution in the Field in the United States (“Exclusivity”). The Company had agreed not to sell or distribute in the United States in the Field any irrigating solution that has anti-microbial properties other than the Licensed Products so long as the Company had Exclusivity.
 
During our fiscal fourth quarter 2013, the Company sent a notice to terminate the Distribution Agreement due to management’s belief that the products subject to the Distribution Agreement were non-conforming. Puricore disputed the Company’s ability to terminate the Distribution Agreement. On October 11, 2013, the Company and Puricore mutually terminated the Distribution Agreement and signed a Settlement Agreement resolving all issues without the payment of any monies by either party. A reversal of the previously accrued and unpaid contractual minimum gross profit requirement in the amount of $439,508 was made through cost of goods sold in the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as a result of the Settlement Agreement.

9. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
We follow a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to measure fair value. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of “observable inputs” and minimize the use of “unobservable inputs.” The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:
 
Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets as of the measurement date.
 
Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
 
Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.
 
The following is a summary of the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of our financial instruments at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013:

Trade accounts payable
 
 
2,208,999
 
 
2,208,999
 
 
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate that value:
 
Cash and cash equivalents
 
The carrying amount approximates fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments.
 
Trade Accounts Receivable
 
The carrying amount of trade receivables reflects net recovery value and approximates fair value because of their short outstanding terms.
 
Trade Accounts Payable
 
The carrying amount of trade payables approximates fair value because of their short outstanding terms.
 
Non-financial assets and liabilities
 
Certain non-financial assets and liabilities, principally goodwill, are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis; that is the assets and liabilities are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances, such as when evidence of impairment exists. At December 31, 2013, no fair value adjustments or material fair value measurements were required for non-financial assets or liabilities.

10. Goodwill and Intangible Assets
 
Goodwill is not amortized. We review goodwill for impairment annually and whenever events or changes indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. These events or circumstances could include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, or sale or disposition of significant assets or product lines. Application of these impairment tests requires significant judgments, including estimation of cash flows, which is dependent on internal forecasts, estimation of the long-term rate of growth for our business, estimation of the useful life over which cash flows will occur and determination of our weighted-average cost of capital. We primarily use a discounted cash flow model in determining fair value, which consists of level three inputs. Changes in the projected cash flows and discount rate estimates and assumptions underlying the valuation of goodwill could materially affect the determination of fair value at acquisition or during subsequent periods when tested for impairment. The Company determined that there were no indicators that the recorded goodwill was impaired as of December 31, 2013 which required further testing.
 
The cost of acquiring or processing patents is capitalized. This amount is being amortized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the underlying assets, which is approximately 17 years. Net patents reported in intangible and other assets totaled $599,789 and $568,823 at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, respectively. Accumulated amortization totaled $595,965 and $554,923 at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, respectively. Amortization expense for the three month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $21,000 and $18,000, respectively. Amortization expense for the six month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $41,000 and $35,000, respectively.
 
Net customer relationships reported in intangible and other assets totaled $280,000 and $360,000 at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, respectively. Accumulated amortization amounted to $520,000 at December 31, 2013 and $440,000 at June 30, 2013. Amortization expense for the three month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was $40,000. Amortization expense for the six month periods ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was $80,000. Customer relationships are amortized on a straight-line basis over a five year period.

This Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of Misonix and its subsidiaries, in which we refer to the Company as “Misonix”, “we”, “our” and “us”, should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited financial statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” of this Report and “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 24, 2013, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 (“2013 Form 10-K”). Item 7 of the 2013 Form 10-K describes the application of our critical accounting policies, for which there have been no significant changes as of December 31, 2013.
 
Forward Looking Statements
 
This Report contains certain forward looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which are intended to be covered by the safe harbors created thereby. Although the Company believes that the assumptions underlying the forward looking statements contained herein are reasonable, any of the assumptions could be inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance that the forward looking statements contained in this Report will prove to be accurate. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from the results specifically discussed in the forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, the absence of anticipated contracts, higher than historical costs incurred in the performance of contracts or in conducting other activities, product mix in sales, future economic, competitive and market conditions, and the outcome of legal proceedings as well as management business decisions.
 
Six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.
 
Net sales: Net sales decreased $847,113 to $7,197,643 for the six months ended December 31, 2013 from $8,044,756.  The decrease in sales is due to lower BoneScalpel revenue of $248,041, lower SonaStar revenue of $301,935, lower service revenue of $172,451, lower SonicOne revenue of $24,109, lower AutoSonix revenue of $45,059, and other lower revenue of $55,518.  However, there were 24 BoneScalpel units consigned in the United States during the six months ended December 31, 2013 compared to 5 BoneScalpel units for the same period in fiscal 2013.  This resulted in an increase in domestic disposables.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
We regularly review our cash funding requirements and attempt to meet those requirements through a combination of cash on hand, cash provided by operations and possible future public or private debt and/or equity offerings.  At times, we evaluate possible acquisitions of, or investments in, businesses that are complementary to ours, which may require the use of cash.  We believe that our cash, other liquid assets and access to equity capital markets, taken together, provide adequate resources to fund ongoing operating expenditures.  In the event that they do not, we may require additional funds in the future to support our working capital requirements or for other purposes and may seek to raise such additional funds through the sale of public or private equity and/or debt financings, and divestiture of current business lines as well as from other sources.  No assurance can be given that additional financing will be available in the future or that if available, such financing will be obtainable on favorable terms when required.  
 
Working capital at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 was $9,867,000 and $9,717,000, respectively.  For the six months ended December 31, 2013, cash used in operations totaled $548,463, primarily related to lower accounts payable and other accrued expenses of $1,262,343, partially offset by depreciation and amortization of $459,449, and lower prepaid expenses and other assets of $226,765.  For the six months ended December 31, 2013, cash used in investing activities was $364,953, primarily due to the acquisition of fixed assets and applications for additional patents.  For the six months ended December 31, 2013, cash provided by financing activities was $130,555 from the exercise of stock options.  For the six months ended December 31, 2013, cash provided by discontinued operations was $9,950.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
Market Risk:
 
The principal market risks (i.e., the risk of loss arising from adverse changes in market rates and prices) to which the Company is exposed are interest rates on short-term investments.
 
Interest Rate Risk:
 
The Company earns interest on cash balances and pays interest on debt incurred. In light of the Company’s existing cash, results of operations and projected borrowing requirements, the Company does not believe that a 10% change in interest rates would have a significant impact on its consolidated financial position.
