NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1:

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The consolidated financial information included herein has been prepared by Schmitt Industries, Inc. (the Company or Schmitt) and its wholly owned subsidiaries. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and contain all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly its financial position as of February 28, 2015 and its results of operations and its cash flows for the periods presented. The consolidated balance sheet at May 31, 2014 has been derived from the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2014. The accompanying unaudited financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2014. Operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be experienced for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2015.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue for sales and billing for freight charges upon delivery of the product to the customer at a fixed and determinable price with a reasonable assurance of collection, passage of title to the customer as indicated by shipping terms and fulfilment of all significant obligations, pursuant to the guidance provided by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 605. For sales to all customers, including manufacturer representatives, distributors or their third-party customers, these criteria are met at the time product is shipped. When other significant obligations remain after products are delivered, revenue is recognized only after such obligations are fulfilled. In addition, judgments are required in evaluating the credit worthiness of our customers. Credit is not extended to customers and revenue is not recognized until we have determined that collectability is reasonably assured.

Financial Instruments

The carrying value of all other financial instruments potentially subject to valuation risk (principally consisting of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable) also approximates fair value because of their short-term maturities.

Accounts Receivable

The Company maintains credit limits for all customers based upon several factors, including but not limited to financial condition and stability, payment history, published credit reports and use of credit references. Management performs various analyses to evaluate accounts receivable balances to ensure recorded amounts reflect estimated net realizable value. This review includes using accounts receivable agings, other operating trends and relevant business conditions, including general economic factors, as they relate to each of the Company’s domestic and international customers. If these analyses lead management to the conclusion that potential significant accounts are uncollectible, a reserve is provided. The allowance for doubtful accounts was $58,748 and $63,297 as of February 28, 2015 and May 31, 2014, respectively.

Inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market with cost determined on the average cost basis. Costs included in inventories consist of materials, labor and manufacturing overhead, which are related to the purchase or production of inventories. Write-downs, when required, are made to reduce excess inventories to their net realizable values. Such estimates are based on assumptions regarding future demand and market conditions. If actual conditions become less favorable than the assumptions used, an additional inventory write-down may be required. As of February 28, 2015 and May 31, 2014, inventories consisted of:

 

     February 28, 2015      May 31, 2014  

Raw materials

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of three to seven years for furniture, fixtures and equipment; three years for vehicles; and twenty-five years for buildings and improvements. As of February 28, 2015 and May 31, 2014, property and equipment consisted of:

Note 2:

LINE OF CREDIT

The Company had a $2 million bank line of credit secured by U.S. accounts receivable, inventories, general intangibles and a depository account. The line of credit was subject to certain covenant requirements if draws on the line were executed. Interest was payable at the bank’s prime rate or LIBOR plus 2.0%. The term on the line of credit expired on September 1, 2014, and the Company chose not to renew the line. The outstanding balance on the line of credit was $0 at May 31, 2014.

Note 3:

STOCK OPTIONS AND STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

Stock-based compensation includes expense charges for all stock-based awards to employees and directors granted under the Company’s stock option plan. Stock-based compensation recognized during the period is based on the portion of the grant date fair value of the stock-based award that will vest during the period, adjusted for expected forfeitures. Compensation cost for all stock-based awards is recognized using the straight-line method. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model as its method of valuation for stock-based awards. The Black-Scholes option pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, and other reasonable assumptions could provide differing results. These variables include, but are not limited to:

 

    Risk-Free Interest Rate. The Company bases the risk-free interest rate on the implied yield currently available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent remaining term approximately equal to the expected life of the award.

 

    Expected Life. The expected life of awards granted represents the period of time that they are expected to be outstanding. The Company determines the expected life based on historical experience with similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms, vesting schedules and pre-vesting and post-vesting forfeitures.

 

    Expected Volatility. The Company estimates the volatility of its common stock at the date of grant based on the historical volatility of its common stock. The volatility factor the Company uses is based on its historical stock prices over the most recent period commensurate with the estimated expected life of the award. These historical periods may exclude portions of time when unusual transactions occurred.

 

    Expected Dividend Yield. The Company does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Consequently, the Company uses an expected dividend yield of zero.

 

    Expected Forfeitures. The Company uses relevant historical data to estimate pre-vesting option forfeitures. The Company records stock-based compensation only for those awards that are expected to vest.

Table of Contents

To determine stock-based compensation expense recognized for those options granted during the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, the Company has computed the value of all stock options granted using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. 87,500 and 35,000 options were issued during the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and February 28, 2014, respectively.

At February 28, 2015, the Company had a total of 332,500 outstanding stock options (205,002 vested and exercisable and 127,498 non-vested) with a weighted average exercise price of $3.68. The Company estimates that $107,758 will be recorded as additional stock-based compensation expense for all options that were outstanding as of February 28, 2015, but which were not yet vested.

Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, adjusted for dilutive incremental shares attributed to outstanding options to purchase common stock. Common stock equivalents for stock options are computed using the treasury stock method. In periods in which a net loss is incurred, no common stock equivalents are included since they are antidilutive and as such all stock options outstanding are excluded from the computation of diluted net loss in those periods.

Note 5:

INCOME TAXES

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method. This approach requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

Each year the Company files income tax returns in the various national, state and local income taxing jurisdictions in which it operates. These tax returns are subject to examination and possible challenge by the taxing authorities. Positions challenged by the taxing authorities may be settled or appealed by the Company. As a result, there is an uncertainty in income taxes recognized in the Company’s financial statements in accordance with ASC Topic 740. The Company applies this guidance by defining criteria that an individual income tax position must meet for any part of the benefit of that position to be recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements and provides guidance on measurement, de-recognition, classification, accounting for interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.

Other long-term liabilities related to tax contingencies were $0 as of both February 28, 2015 and May 31, 2014. Interest and penalties associated with uncertain tax positions are recognized as components of the “Provision for income taxes.” The liability for payment of interest and penalties was $0 as of February 28, 2015 and May 31, 2014.

Several tax years are subject to examination by major tax jurisdictions. In the United States, federal tax years for Fiscal 2011 and after are subject to examination. In the United Kingdom, tax years for Fiscal 2012 and after are subject to examination. In Canada, tax years for Fiscal 2005 and after are subject to examination.

Effective Tax Rate

The effective tax rate on consolidated net loss was 3.9% for the nine months ended February 28, 2015. The effective tax rate on consolidated net income (loss) differs from the federal statutory tax rate primarily due to the amount of income from foreign jurisdictions, changes in the deferred tax valuation allowance and certain expenses not being deductible for income tax reporting purposes. Management believes the effective tax rate for Fiscal 2015 will be approximately 5.1% due to the items noted above.

Note 6:

SEGMENTS OF BUSINESS

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

Schmitt Industries, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets computer-controlled vibration detection, balancing and process control equipment (the Balancer segment) to the worldwide machine tool industry and through its wholly owned subsidiary, Schmitt Measurement Systems, Inc., designs, manufactures and markets precision laser-based surface measurement products, laser-based distance measurement products and ultrasonic measurement systems (the Measurement segment) for a variety of industrial applications worldwide. The Company sells and markets its products in Europe through its wholly owned subsidiary, Schmitt Europe Ltd. (SEL), located in the United Kingdom. The Company is organized into two operating segments: the Balancer segment and the Measurement segment. The accompanying unaudited financial information should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2014.

“SBS,” “SMS,” “Acuity,” “Xact”, “Lasercheck” and “AccuProfile” are registered trademarks owned by the Company.

For the three months ended February 28, 2015, total sales decreased $55,545, or 1.8%, to $3,010,618 from $3,066,163 in the three months ended February 28, 2014. For the nine months ended February 28, 2015, total sales increased $102,748, or 1.1%, to $9,211,410 from $9,108,662 in the nine months ended February 28, 2014.

Balancer segment sales focus throughout the world on end-users, rebuilders and original equipment manufacturers of grinding machines with the target geographic markets in North America, South America, Asia and Europe. Balancer segment sales decreased $66,379, or 3.4%, to $1,903,482 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $1,969,861 for the three months ended February 28, 2014, primarily due to softer sales in North America, offset in part by increased sales into Asia. Balancer segment sales decreased $171,098, or 2.9%, to $5,666,501 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $5,837,599 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. The decrease in worldwide balancer sales for the nine month period ended February 28, 2015 is attributed to softer sales in our North American market, offset in part by increased sales in Asia.

The Measurement segment product line consists of laser-based light-scatter, distance measurement and dimensional sizing products and ultrasonic-based remote tank monitoring products for propane and diesel tanks. Total Measurement segment sales increased $10,834, or 1.0%, to $1,107,136 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $1,096,302 for the three months ended February 28, 2014, primarily due to an increase in revenues associated with the sales of remote tank monitoring products and related monitoring services, offset in part by a decrease in sales of our laser-based light-scatter surface measurement products and our laser-based distance measurement products. Total Measurement segment sales increased $273,846, or 8.4%, to $3,544,909 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $3,271,063 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. The increase in worldwide measurement system sales for the nine month period

ended February 28, 2015 is primarily due to the delivery and acceptance of one of our CASI® (Complete Angle Scatter Instrument) systems during the first quarter of Fiscal 2015 and an increase in revenues associated with the sales of remote tank monitoring products and related monitoring services.

Operating expenses decreased $38,715, or 2.5%, to $1,500,870 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 from $1,539,585 for the three months ended February 28, 2014. Operating expenses decreased $100,876, or 2.2%, to $4,536,317 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 from $4,637,193 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. General, administration and sales expenses increased $17,168, or 1.2%, to $1,405,140 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 from $1,387,972 for the same period in the prior year. General, administration and sales expenses decreased $3,228, or 0.1%, to $4,243,492 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 from $4,246,720 for the same period in the prior year. Research and development expenses decreased $55,883, or 36.9%, to $95,730 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 from $151,613 for the three months ended February 28, 2014. Research and development expenses decreased $97,648, or 25.0%, to $292,825 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 from $390,473 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014.

Net loss was $168,371, or $(0.06) per fully diluted share, for the three months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to net loss of $72,107, or $(0.02) per fully diluted share, for the three months ended February 28, 2014. Net loss was $186,428, or $(0.06) per fully diluted share, for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to net loss of $381,867, or $(0.13) per fully diluted share, for the nine months ended February 28, 2014.

Sales in the Balancer segment decreased $171,098, or 2.9%, to $5,666,501 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $5,837,599 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. This decrease is primarily due to lower unit sales in North America, offset in part by increased sales into the Asia market. Sales in North America decreased $448,673, or 14.5%, for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the nine months ended February 28, 2014. Asia sales increased $253,459, or 13.6%, in the nine months ended February 28, 2015 compared to the same period in the prior year. European sales decreased $11,281, or 1.4%, in the first three quarters of Fiscal 2015 compared to the first three quarters of Fiscal 2014. Sales in other regions of the world increased $35,397, or 35.6%, in the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year. The levels of demand for our Balancer products in any of the geographic markets cannot be forecasted with any certainty given the recent volatility in the global economy and the historical volatility experienced in these markets.

Sales in the Measurement segment increased $10,834, or 1.0%, to $1,107,136 in the three months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $1,096,302 in the three months ended February 28, 2014. Sales of remote tank monitoring products and revenues from monitoring services increased $305,886, or 154.6%, to $503,690 during the third quarter of Fiscal 2015 as compared to $197,804 for the same period in the prior year. Sales of laser-based surface measurement products in the three months ended February 28, 2015 decreased $160,699, or 72.2%, as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to the delivery and acceptance of one of our CASI® products during the quarter ended February 28, 2014. Sales of our laser-based distance measurement and dimensional sizing products in the third quarter of Fiscal 2015 decreased $206,891, or 32.1%, as compared to the third quarter of Fiscal 2014 due to softness in the markets that these products are used.

Sales in the Measurement segment increased $273,846, or 8.4%, to $3,544,909 in the nine months ended February 28, 2015 compared to $3,271,063 in the nine months ended February 28, 2014. Sales of remote tank monitoring products and revenues from monitoring services increased $447,947, or 61.4%, to $1,177,435 during the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to $729,488 for the same period in the prior year. Sales of laser-based surface measurement products in the nine months ended February 28, 2015 increased $104,549, or 18.0%, as compared to the same period in the prior year. These increases were offset by the decrease in sales of our laser-based distance measurement and dimensional sizing products in the amount of $350,537, or 19.2%, for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year. Given the recent volatility in these markets, future sales of laser-based measurement products cannot be forecasted with any certainty.

Gross margin – Gross margin for the three months ended February 28, 2015 decreased to 44.9% as compared to 47.5% for the three months ended February 28, 2014. Gross margin for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 increased to 47.4% as compared to 46.7% for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. The fluctuations in gross margin in both the three and nine months periods ended February 28, 2015 compared to the three and nine month periods in the prior fiscal year is primarily influenced by shifts in the product sales mix involving our five product lines.

Operating expenses – Operating expenses decreased $38,715, or 2.5%, to $1,500,870 for the three months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to $1,539,585 for the three months ended February 28, 2014. General, administrative and selling expenses increased $17,168, or 1.2%, for the three months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year due in part to increases in personnel expenses offset by reductions in professional fees and depreciation expense. Research and development expenses decreased $55,883, or 36.9%, for the quarter ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year due to fewer development projects within our existing product lines occurring during the third quarter of Fiscal 2015 as compared to the third quarter of Fiscal 2014. Operating expenses decreased $100,876, or 2.2%, to $4,536,317 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to $4,637,193 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. General, administrative and selling expenses decreased $3,228, or 0.1%, for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year. Increases in personnel costs and marketing and trade show expenses were offset by decreases in professional fees, depreciation expense and other general office and utility costs. Research and development expenses decreased $97,648, or 25.0%, as compared to the same period in the prior year due to fewer development projects within our existing product lines occurring during the first three quarters of Fiscal 2015 as compared to the first three quarters of Fiscal 2014.

Other income (loss) – Other income (loss) consists of interest income (expense), foreign currency exchange gain (loss) and other income (expense). Interest income (expense), net was $(742) and $(1,166) for the three months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, respectively and $(2,628) and $(7,968) for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Foreign currency exchange gains (losses) were $(14,848) and $(855) for the three months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, respectively and $(8,593) and $302 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The shifts in the foreign currency exchange are related to fluctuations of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar during the current period. Also included in other income (loss) for the quarter and nine months ended February 28, 2014 is a $13,667 gain on the sale of a fixed asset.

Income taxes – The Company’s effective tax rate on consolidated net loss was 3.9% for the nine months ended February 28, 2015. The effective tax rate on consolidated net loss differs from the federal statutory tax rate primarily due to the amount of income from foreign jurisdictions, changes in the deferred tax valuation allowance and certain expenses not being deductible for income tax reporting purposes. Management believes the effective tax rate for Fiscal 2015 will be approximately 5.1% due to the items noted above

Net loss – Net loss was $168,371, or $(0.06) per diluted share, for the three months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to a net loss of $72,107, or $(0.02) per diluted share, for the three months ended February 28, 2014. The increase in the net loss for the third quarter of Fiscal 2015 as compared to the same period in the prior year is directly related to the mix of product sold in each of the respective quarters. Net loss was $186,428, or $(0.06) per diluted share, for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to a net loss of $381,867, or $(0.13) per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. Net loss for the first three quarters of Fiscal 2015 decreased as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to shifts in product mix with increased sales of higher margin products.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company’s working capital decreased to $7,409,258 as of February 28, 2015 as compared to $7,478,073 as of May 31, 2014. Cash and cash equivalents increased $141,999 to $1,652,564 as of February 28, 2015 from $1,510,565 as of May 31, 2014.

Cash provided by operating activities totaled $235,364 for the nine months ended February 28, 2015 as compared to cash used in operating activities of $45,071 for the nine months ended February 28, 2014. The increase in cash provided by operating activities was primarily impacted by the $186,428 in net loss for the first three quarters of Fiscal 2015 as compared to $381,867 of net loss in the first three quarters of Fiscal 2014. Changes in accounts receivable and accounts payable and other accrued liabilities also impacted the total cash provided/used and the changes are the result of timing of receipts and payments.

At February 28, 2015, the Company had accounts receivable of $2,453,944 as compared to $2,235,194 at May 31, 2014. The increase in accounts receivable of $218,750 was due to timing of receipts. Inventories decreased $73,487 to $4,716,335 as of February 28, 2015 compared to $4,789,822 at May 31, 2014, which is due to increased sales within the Xact® product line and targeted reductions of certain inventories in our SBS product line. At February 28, 2015, total current liabilities increased $369,647 to $1,580,731 as compared to $1,211,084 at May 31, 2014. The increase in accounts payable and other accrued expenses is primarily due to the timing of payments to our vendors and an increase in accrued commissions.

During the nine months ended February 28, 2015, net cash used by investing activities was $18,933, which was for building improvements necessary for the installation of manufacturing equipment being leased by the Company and purchase of office furniture and equipment.

The Company had a $2 million bank line of credit secured by U.S. accounts receivable, inventories, general intangibles and a depository account. The line of credit was subject to certain covenant requirements if draws on the line were executed. Interest was payable at the bank’s prime rate or LIBOR plus 2.0%. The term on the line of credit expired on September 1, 2014, and the Company chose not to renew the line. The outstanding balance on the line of credit was $0 at May 31, 2014.

We believe that our existing cash and cash equivalents combined with the cash we anticipate to generate from operating activities and financing available from other sources will be sufficient to meet our cash requirements for the foreseeable future. We do not have any significant commitments nor are we aware of any significant events or conditions that are likely to have a material impact on our liquidity or capital resources.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of February 28, 2015, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Based on the evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this Report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s Exchange Act reports is (1) recorded, processed, summarized and reported in a timely manner, and (2) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives, and management necessarily is required to use its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the Company’s fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2015 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, such internal control over financial reporting.
