Note 2. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Recently issued accounting pronouncements not yet adopted:

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. This guidance will supersede Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, in addition to other industry specific guidance, once effective. The new standard requires a company to recognize revenue in a manner that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Deferral of the Effective Date, as a revision to ASU 2014-09, which revised the effective date to fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted but not prior to periods beginning after December 15, 2016 (i.e. the original adoption date per ASU 2014-09). In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Principal versus Agent Considerations, which clarifies certain aspects of the principal-versus-agent guidance, including how an entity should identify the unit of accounting for the principal versus agent evaluation and how it should apply the control principle to certain types of arrangements, such as service transactions. The amendments also reframe the indicators to focus on evidence that an entity is acting as a principal rather than as an agent. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, which clarifies how an entity should evaluate the nature of its promise in granting a license of intellectual property, which will determine whether it recognizes revenue over time or at a point in time. The amendments also clarify when a promised good or service is separately identifiable (i.e., distinct within the context of the contract) and allow entities to disregard items that are immaterial in the context of a contract. We continue to assess the impact this new standard may

6


 

have on our ongoing financial reporting. We have identified our revenue streams both by contract and product type and are assessing each for potential impacts. For the revenue streams we have assessed, we do not anticipate a material impact in the timing or amount of revenue recognized.  We may be required to adjust our accounting for our returns reserve. However, as our returns have historically been less than 3% of revenue and this change would only affect our balance sheet,  we do not expect this to have a material impact on our Financial Statements. Based on this ongoing assessment, we intend to adopt the standard on a modified retrospective basis on April 1, 2018, the first day of fiscal 2019.

 

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases. This ASU requires lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets related to the rights and obligations created by those leases. The ASU also requires additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures related to the nature, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this new standard will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-15, Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. The new standard will change the classification of certain cash payments and receipts within the cash flow statement. Specifically, payments for debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, including third-party costs, premiums paid, and other fees paid to lenders that are directly related to the debt prepayment or debt extinguishment, excluding accrued interest, will now be classified as financing activities. Previously, these payments were classified as operating expenses. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted, and will be applied retrospectively. The Company does not expect that the adoption of this new standard will have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

 

Recently issued accounting pronouncements adopted:

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation. The new standard modified several aspects of the accounting and reporting for employee share-based payments and related tax accounting impacts, including the presentation in the statements of operations and cash flows of certain tax benefits or deficiencies and employee tax withholdings, as well as the accounting for award forfeitures over the vesting period. One provision within this pronouncement requires that excess income tax benefits and tax deficiencies related to share-based payments be recognized within income tax expense in the statement of income, rather than within additional paid-in capital on the balance sheet. The adoption of this provision was applied prospectively. The impact to the Company's results of operations related to this provision in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was an increase in the provision for income taxes of $0.04 million, and a 3.25% higher effective tax rate than if the standard had not been adopted. The impact of this provision on the Company's future results of operations will depend in part on the market prices for the Company's shares on the dates there are taxable events related to share awards, but is not expected to be material. In connection with another provision within this pronouncement, the Company has elected to account for forfeitures as they occur rather than estimate expected forfeitures, with the change being applied prospectively. The Company does not expect this or other provisions within the pronouncement to have a material impact on its financial statements.

In December 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-19, “Technical Corrections and Improvements”. Among other things, the ASU provides clarification on the presentation of the costs of computer software developed or obtained for internal use. The Company retrospectively adopted the ASU in the three months ended June 25, 2017 and reclassified the carrying value of internal-use computer software from Property, plant and equipment, net to Intangible assets, net. The net carrying value of internal-use computer software was $4.5 million and $4.3 million, respectively, as of June 25, 2017 and March 26, 2017.

 

 

Note 3. Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses for the fiscal quarter ended June 25, 2017 includes $247,600 of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses for the fiscal quarter ended June 26, 2016 included $115,800 non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense is primarily related our Performance Stock Units (PSUs), Restricted Stock Units (RSUs), and Stock Options, granted or outstanding under our Third Amended and Restated Stock and Incentive Plan (the “1994 Plan”).

 

Performance Stock Units: The following table summarizes the activity under the Company’s PSU program under the 1994 Plan, for the first three months of fiscal 2018:

During the first quarter of fiscal 2018, the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors with concurrence of the full Board of Directors, granted PSUs to select key employees, providing them with the opportunity to earn up to 81,000 shares of the Company’s common stock in the aggregate, depending upon whether and to the extent which certain earnings per share targets and other Company and individual performance metrics are met. These not-yet-earned PSUs have a one-year measurement period (fiscal 2018), and assuming the performance metrics are met to a sufficient extent, any shares earned at the end of fiscal 2018 will vest and be issued ratably on or about May 1 of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, provided that the respective employees remain employed by or associated with the Company on each such date.

 

The PSUs cancelled during fiscal 2018 related to the fiscal 2017 grant of PSUs, which had a one year measurement period (fiscal 2017). The PSUs were cancelled because the minimum applicable fiscal 2017 performance targets were not attained. Per the 1994 Plan, the shares related to these forfeited and cancelled PSUs were added back to the 1994 Plan and became available for future issuance under the 1994 Plan.

 

If all PSUs granted thus far in fiscal 2018 are assumed to be earned on account of the applicable performance metrics being fully met, total unrecognized compensation costs on these PSUs would be approximately $0.9 million, as of June 25, 2017, and would be expensed through fiscal 2021. To the extent the maximum number of PSUs granted in fiscal 2018 is not earned, stock-based compensation related to these awards will differ from this amount.

Restricted Stock Units: The Company has made annual restricted stock unit (RSU) awards under the 1994 Plan to its non-employee directors over recent years. Most recently, RSU awards have also been made to Robert B Barnhill, Jr., our former President and Chief Executive Officer and current Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board. These RSUs have been awarded to Mr. Barnhill in lieu of PSU awards, as provided for under the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement between us and Mr. Barnhill. On May 10, 2017, the Compensation Committee, with the concurrence of the full Board of Directors, awarded an aggregate of 18,000 RSUs, ratably to the five non-employee directors of the Company, and to Mr. Barnhill. These awards provide for the issuance of shares of the Company’s common stock in accordance with a four-year annual vesting schedule, following from the date of grant, provided that the director remains associated with the Company (or meets other criteria as prescribed in the applicable award agreement) on each such anniversary date.  As of June 25, 2017, there was approximately $0.5 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to all outstanding RSUs, including the May 10, 2017 grants. Unrecognized compensation costs are expected to be recognized ratably over a weighted average period of approximately three years.

 

PSUs and RSUs are expensed based on the grant date fair value, calculated as the closing price of TESSCO common stock as reported by NASDAQ on the date of grant minus the present value of dividends expected to be paid on the common stock before the award vests, because dividends or dividend-equivalent amounts do not accrue and are not paid on unvested PSUs and RSUs.

 

As discussed in Note 2, the Company will now account for forfeitures as they occur rather than estimate expected forfeitures. To the extent that forfeitures occur, stock based compensation related to the restricted awards will be different from the Company’s expectations.

 

Stock Options: Following the initiation of our PSU award program for fiscal 2005, our Compensation Committee occasionally employed stock options as an element of incentive compensation, but after more recently revaluating its approach to executive compensation, has concluded that grants or awards of stock options are appropriate as a retention and recruiting tool, and beginning in fiscal 2016 has increased the number and frequency of stock option awards, primarily to senior management.  As summarized below, in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, stock options for an aggregate of 200,000 shares of common stock were awarded, all under the 1994 Plan. These stock options have exercise prices equal to the market price of the Company’s stock on the grant date, and the terms thereof provide for 25% vesting after one year and then 1/36 per month over the following three years. The grant date value of the Company’s stock options is determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model, based upon facts and assumptions existing at the date of grant.

 

The value of each option at the date of grant is amortized as compensation expense over the service period. This occurs without regard to subsequent changes in stock price, volatility, or interest rates over time, provided the option remains outstanding.

 

The following tables summarize pertinent information for outstanding options.

Note 4. Borrowings Under Revolving Credit Facility

 

On June 24, 2016, the Company and its primary operating subsidiaries entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with SunTrust Bank, as Administrative Agent and Lender, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as a Lender. The Credit Agreement provides for a senior asset based revolving credit facility of up to $35 million (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and replaces the Company’s previously existing $35 million unsecured revolving credit facility with both SunTrust Bank and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, which had no outstanding principal balance at the time of replacement. The new Revolving Credit Facility matures in five years, on June 24, 2021, and includes a $5.0 million sublimit for the issuance of standby letters of credit and a $10.0 million sublimit for swing line loans. The Credit Agreement also includes a provision permitting the Company, subject to certain conditions and approval of the Lenders, to increase the aggregate amount of the commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility to up to $50 million, through optional increased commitments from existing Lenders or new commitments from additional lenders, although no Lender is obligated to increase its commitment. Borrowing availability is determined in part in accordance with a borrowing base, which is generally 85% of eligible receivables minus reserves. The Credit Agreement also contains financial covenants, including a fixed charge coverage ratio that must be maintained at any time during which the borrowing availability, as determined in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Credit Agreement, is otherwise less than $10 million. The Credit Agreement also may limit the Company’s ability to engage in specified transactions or activities, including (but not limited to) investments and acquisitions, sales of assets, payment of dividends, issuance of additional debt and other matters.

 

Borrowings initially accrue interest from the applicable borrowing date, generally the Eurodollar rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.5% to 1.75%.  At June 25, 2017 the interest rate on the revolving credit facility was 2.56%. Under certain circumstances, the applicable interest rate is subject to change from the Eurodollar rate plus the applicable margin to the base rate plus the applicable margin. Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility may be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes, and as further

10


 

provided in, and subject to the applicable terms of, the Credit Agreement. As of June 25, 2017, borrowings under this Revolving Credit Facility totaled $8.3 million and, therefore, we had $26.7 million available, subject to the borrowing base limitation and compliance with the other applicable terms of the Credit Agreement including the covenants referenced above. The line of credit has a lockbox arrangement associated with it and therefore the outstanding balance is classified as a current liability on our balance sheet.  As of March 26, 2017, we had a zero balance on the Revolving Credit Facility.

 

Pursuant to a related Guaranty and Security Agreement by and among the Company, the other borrowers under the Credit Agreement and other subsidiaries of the Company (collectively, the “Loan Parties”), and SunTrust Bank, as Administrative Agent, the Loan Parties’ obligations, which include the obligations under the Credit Agreement, are guaranteed by those Loan Parties which are not otherwise borrowers, and secured by continuing first priority security interests in the Company’s and the other Loan Parties’ (including both borrowers and guarantors) inventory, accounts receivable, and deposit accounts, and on all documents, instruments, general intangibles, letter of credit rights, and chattel paper, in each case to the extent relating to inventory and accounts, and to all proceeds of the foregoing. The security interests are granted in favor of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders party to the Credit Agreement from time to time.  The obligations secured also include certain other obligations of the Loan Parties to the Lenders and their affiliates arising from time to time, relating to swaps, hedges and cash management and other bank products. 

 

Note 5. Fair Value Disclosure

 

Assets and liabilities carried at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

 

·

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

·

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.

·

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the inputs used in pricing the asset or liability.

 

The Company had no assets or liabilities required to be measured at fair value as of June 25, 2017, or as of March 26, 2017.

 

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, trade accounts receivable, trade accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate their fair values as of June 25, 2017, or as of March 26, 2017, due to their short term nature. 

 

 

Note 6. Income Taxes

 

As of June 25, 2017, the Company had a gross amount of unrecognized tax benefits of $205,400 ($133,200 net of federal benefit).  As of March 26, 2017, the Company had a gross amount of unrecognized tax benefits of $204,500 ($147,800 net of federal benefit).

 

The Company’s accounting policy with respect to interest and penalties related to tax uncertainties is to classify these amounts as part of the provision for income taxes. The total amount of interest and penalties related to tax uncertainties recognized in the consolidated statement of income for the first three months of fiscal 2018 was an expense of $10,800 (net of federal benefit). The cumulative amount included in the consolidated balance

11


 

sheet as of June 25, 2017 was $340,500 (net of federal benefit). The total amount of interest and penalties related to tax uncertainties recognized in the consolidated statement of income for the first three months of fiscal 2017 was an expense of $13,400 (net of federal benefit). The cumulative amount of interest and penalties included in the consolidated balance sheet as of March 26, 2017 was $314,300 (net of federal benefit).

 

A reconciliation of the changes in the gross balance of unrecognized tax benefits, excluding interest, is as follows:

The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Updated No. 2016-09 Topic 718, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2016-09”), effective as of March 27, 2017.  The new guidance requires all of the tax effects related to share-based payments to be recognized through the income statement and is effective for public entities for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016.  We will treat the tax effects of share-based compensation awards as discrete items in the interim reporting periods in which the windfalls or shortfalls occurred.  As a result of the adoption of the ASU 2016-09, the effective rate is 3.25% higher than if the ASU 2016-09 was not adopted.  

 

 

Note 7. Earnings Per Share

 

The Company presents the computation of earnings per share on a basic and diluted basis. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the reported period. Diluted earnings per share are computed similarly to basic earnings per share, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential additional common shares that were dilutive had been issued. Common shares are excluded from the calculation if they are determined to be anti-dilutive. At June 25, 2017, stock options with respect to 620,000 shares of common stock were outstanding, of which 240,000 were anti-dilutive. At June 26, 2016, stock options with respect to 80,000 shares of common stock were outstanding, all of which were anti-dilutive. There were no anti-dilutive PSUs or RSUs outstanding as of June 25, 2017 or June 26, 2016, respectively.

 

Note 8. Business Segments

 

Beginning with the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, the Company modified the structure of its internal organization in an effort to better serve the market place. Retail inventory typically has a shorter more defined life cycle and is, typically, ultimately used by individual end users. Commercial inventory typically has a life cycle that tends to be tied to changes in regulation or technology and includes products typically used by business entities or governments. Reflective of these differences, our sales and product teams have been reorganized and will each now report to either a retail or commercial leader. The Company concluded that corresponding changes to its reportable segments are warranted and now evaluates its business within two segments: commercial and retail. The commercial segment consists of the following customer markets:  (1) public carriers, contractors and program managers, that are generally responsible for building and maintaining the infrastructure system and provide airtime service to individual subscribers; (2) government system operators including federal agencies and state and local governments that run wireless networks for their own use;  (3)

12


 

private system operators including commercial entities such as enterprise customers, major utilities and transportation companies; (4) commercial dealers and resellers that sell, install and/or service cellular telephone, wireless networking, broadband and two-way radio communications equipment primarily for the enterprise market. The retail segment consists of the retailers, independent dealer agents and carriers market. All prior financial periods reflected in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been restated to reflect this change.

 

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, in conjunction with the, modification of the structure of the internal organization of the Company, as described above, the Company reviewed several customer types, including a large repair center customer, and reclassified them from the private system operators market to the either the commercial dealers and resellers market or the retailer, independent dealer agent and carriers market, based on their purchase history. The Company has restated prior periods reflected in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to reflect these changes.

 

The Company evaluates goodwill at the segment level. In conjunction with the change in segments, the Company evaluated its goodwill using level 3 fair value imputes, and no impairment was identified.

 

To provide investors with better visibility, the Company also discloses revenue and gross profit by its four product categories:

 

·

Base station infrastructure products are used to build, repair and upgrade wireless telecommunications systems. Products include base station antennas, cable and transmission lines, small towers, lightning protection devices, connectors, power systems, miscellaneous hardware, and mobile antennas. Base station infrastructure service offerings include connector installation, custom jumper assembly, site kitting and logistics integration.

 

·

Network systems products are used to build and upgrade computing and internet networks.  Products include fixed and mobile broadband equipment, distributed antenna systems (DAS), wireless networking, filtering systems, two-way radios and security and surveillance products.  This product category also includes training classes, technical support and engineering design services. 

 

·

Installation, test and maintenance products are used to install, tune, maintain and repair wireless communications equipment. Products include sophisticated analysis equipment and various

frequency-, voltage- and power-measuring devices, as well as an assortment of tools, hardware, GPS, safety and replacement and component parts and supplies required by service technicians.  

 

·

Mobile device accessories include cellular phone and data device accessories such as replacement batteries, cases, speakers, mobile amplifiers, power supplies, headsets, mounts, car antennas, music accessories and data and memory cards. Retail merchandising displays, promotional programs, customized order fulfillment services and affinity-marketing programs, including private label internet sites, complement our mobile devices and accessory product offering.

 

The Company evaluates revenue, gross profit, and income before provision for income taxes at a consolidated level.  Certain cost of sales and other applicable expenses have been allocated to each market unit or product type based on a percentage of revenues and/or gross profit, where appropriate.

Note 11. Subsequent Events

 

On July 17, 2017, the Company and its primary operating subsidiaries, as co-borrowers, and SunTrust Bank, as Administrative Agent and Lender, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as a Lender,  entered into a First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “First Amendment”), effective as of July 13, 2017, to amend select terms of the Credit Agreement dated June 24, 2016 (the "Credit Agreement") by and among the Company and other co-borrowers and SunTrust Bank, as Administrative Agent and Lender, and Wells Fargo Bank NA, as Lender, for the Company's existing $35 million senior asset backed revolving credit facility.

 

Pursuant to the First Amendment, the term "Availability" as used in the Credit Agreement was amended for a period of time ending no later than October 31, 2017, to allow for the inclusion of an additional sum when calculating "Availability" for certain limited purposes. This additional sum is equal to the lesser of $10 million, and the amount by which the Borrowing Base (as defined in the Credit Agreement) exceeds $35 million. This does not increase the $35 million Aggregate Revolving Commitment Amount (as defined in the Credit Agreement), but will allow the Company greater flexibility under the Credit Agreement for a limited period of time, and was sought by the Company in response to business opportunities the Company is pursuing.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. This commentary should be read in conjunction with the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations from the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 26, 2017.

 

Business Overview and Environment

 

TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (TESSCO, we, or the Company) architects and delivers innovative product and value chain solutions to support wireless broadband systems. Although we sell products to customers in many countries, approximately 98% of our sales are made to customers in the United States. We have operations and office facilities in Hunt Valley, Maryland, Reno, Nevada and San Antonio, Texas.

 

Beginning with the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, the Company modified the structure of its internal organization in an effort to better serve the market place. Retail inventory typically has a shorter more defined life cycle and is, typically, ultimately used by individual end users. Commercial inventory typically has a life cycle that tends to be tied to changes in regulation or technology and includes products typically used by business entities or governments. Reflective of these differences, our sales and product teams have been reorganized and each now report to either a retail or commercial leader. The Company concluded that corresponding changes to its reportable segments are warranted and now evaluates its business within two segments: commercial and retail. The commercial segment consists of the following customer markets:  (1) public carriers, contractors and program managers, that are generally responsible for building and maintaining the infrastructure system and provide airtime service to individual subscribers; (2) government system operators including federal agencies and state and local governments that run wireless networks for their own use;  (3) private system operators including commercial entities such as enterprise customers, major utilities and transportation companies; (4) commercial dealers and resellers that sell, install and/or service cellular telephone, wireless networking, broadband and two-way radio communications equipment primarily for the enterprise market. The retail segment consists of the retailers, independent dealer agents and carriers market.

 

We offer a wide range of products that are classified into four product categories: base station infrastructure; network systems; installation, test and maintenance; and mobile device accessories. Base station infrastructure products are used to build, repair and upgrade wireless telecommunication systems. Sales of traditional base station infrastructure products, such as base station radios, cable and transmission lines and antennas are in part dependent on capital spending in the wireless communications industry. Network systems products are used to build and upgrade computing and internet networks. We have also been growing our offering of wireless broadband, distributed antennas systems (DAS), network equipment, security and surveillance products, which are not as dependent on the overall capital spending of the industry. Installation, test and maintenance products are used to install, tune, and maintain wireless communications equipment. This category is made up of sophisticated analysis equipment and various frequency, voltage and power-measuring devices, replacement parts and components as well as an assortment of tools, hardware and supplies required by service technicians. Mobile device accessories products include cellular phone and data device accessories 

 

Our first quarter fiscal 2018 revenue increased by 8.7% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. We experienced first quarter fiscal 2018 revenue growth within both our commercial and retail segments of 12.5% and 2.2%, respectively. The growth in our commercial segment is largely driven by our public carrier market, which increased by 60.4%, as compared to the same quarter last year. This growth was partially offset by declines in our government market of 14.3%, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. We continue to see sequential growth in the public carrier market, with revenues increasing 26.3% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. This year over year increase and sequential growth in

17


 

the public carrier market is largely the result of increased spending by our tower owner and program manager customers, but also reflects better execution of our selling strategy in this market. On the product side, revenue increased in our base station infrastructure, network systems, and mobile device accessories categories by 12.7%, 29.3% and 1.7%, respectively, for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to the same quarter last year.

 

Our first quarter fiscal year 2018 gross profit increased by 7.6%, compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2017. The increase in gross profit was primarily the result of the increases in revenue discussed above, partially offset by compressed gross profit margins caused by changes in customer and product mix, including the growth in the lower margin public carrier market. Total selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 3.4% compared to the prior-year quarter. As a result, net income increased by 748.3% and diluted earnings per share decreased by 700.0% compared to the prior-year quarter.

 

Our ongoing ability to earn revenues and gross profits from customers and vendors looking to us for product and supply chain solutions depends upon a number of factors. The terms, and accordingly the factors, applicable to each relationship often differ. Among these factors are the strength of the customer’s or vendor’s business, the supply and demand for the product or service, including price stability, changing customer or vendor requirements, and our ability to support the customer or vendor and to continually demonstrate that we can improve the way they do business. In addition, the agreements or arrangements on which our customer and vendor relationships are based are typically of limited duration, typically do not include any obligation in respect of any specific product purchase or sale and are terminable by either party upon several months or otherwise relatively short notice. Because of the nature of our business, we have been affected from time to time in the past by the loss and changes in the business habits of significant customer and vendor relationships, and we may continue to be so affected in the future. Our customer relationships could also be affected by wireless carrier consolidation or the overall global economic environment.

 

The wireless communications distribution industry is competitive and fragmented and is comprised of several national distributors. In addition, many manufacturers sell direct. Barriers to entry for distributors are relatively low, particularly in the mobile devices and accessories market, and the risk of new competitors entering the marketplace is high. Consolidation of larger wireless carriers has and will most likely continue to impact our current and potential customer base. Our ability to maintain customer and vendor relationships is subject to competitive pressures and challenges. We believe, however, that our strength in service, the breadth and depth of our product offering, our information technology system, industry experience and knowledge, and our large customer base and purchasing relationships with approximately 450 manufacturers, provide us with a significant competitive advantage over new entrants to the marketplace.

Results of Operations

 

First quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 Compared with First quarter of Fiscal Year 2017

 

Total Revenues. Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 increased 8.7% compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Within our commercial segment, revenues in our public carrier market increased by 60.4%, largely due to increased spending among our tower owner and program manager customers, but also reflective better execution of our selling strategy in this market. This growth was echoed in our commercial dealers and resellers and private system operators markets with increases of 2.2% and 3.6%, respectively, over the prior year quarter. This growth was partially offset by a decline in our government system operators market of 14.3%. Our retail market revenues increased 2.2% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017, due, in part, to increased spending by our large multi-door retail dealers and a large repair center customer.

 

Total Gross Profit. Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 increased by 7.6% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Within our commercial segment, gross profit in our public carriers, contractors and program managers market increased by 36.8%. Gross profit in our government and commercial dealers and resellers markets decreased by 6.4% and 3.5%, respectively. Within our retail market, gross profit increased by 16.9% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to 2017, primarily due to increased sales of our private label Ventev® products. Overall gross profit margin decreased from 21.0% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 to 20.8% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. This decline was primarily caused by a change in product and customer mix, including the increase in lower margin sales in the public carrier market.

 

As discussed above under the heading “Business Overview and Environment,” our ongoing ability to earn revenues and gross profits from customers and vendors depends upon a number of factors which often differ for each relationship. Agreements or arrangements on which these relationships are based typically do not include any obligation in respect of any specific product purchase or sale, are of limited duration, and are terminable by either party upon relatively short notice. We have been affected from time to time in the past by the loss and changes in the business habits of significant customer and vendor relationships, and we may continue to be so affected in the future.  

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Total selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $0.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues decreased from 20.9% for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, to 19.9% for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

 

Pay for performance bonus expense (including both cash and equity plans) increased by $1.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Our bonus programs are typically based on achieving annual performance targets. The relationship between expected performance and actual performance led to higher bonus accruals in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

 

We continually evaluate the credit worthiness of our existing customer receivable portfolio and provide an appropriate reserve based on this evaluation. We also evaluate the credit worthiness of prospective and current customers and make decisions regarding extension of credit terms to such customers based on this evaluation. We incurred bad debt expense of $231,000 and $315,400 for the fiscal quarter ended June 25, 2017 and June 26, 2016, respectively. 

 

19


 

Interest, Net. Net interest expense increased from $11,400 for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 to $68,600 for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, due to increased borrowings on our revolving line of credit discussed in Note 4 to our Consolidated Financial Statements, included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Income Taxes, Net Income and Diluted Earnings per Share. The effective tax rate increased from 42.0% for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 to 43.9% for the first quarter of fiscal 2018. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was higher due to higher projected non-deductible expenses for fiscal year 2018, including an excess book cost on equity shares vested in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Our provision for income taxes increased by 814.0% compared to the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of higher income before provision for income taxes. As a result of the factors discussed above, net income increased 748.3% and diluted earnings per share increased 700.0% for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to the corresponding prior-year quarter.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We used $14.1 million of net cash from operating activities for the first three months of fiscal 2018, compared with net cash provided by operating activities of $0.1 million for the first three months of fiscal 2017. This fiscal 2018 outflow was driven by an increase in product inventory and accounts receivable, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable. Increasing sales to our public carrier customers required significant investments in inventory and at times results in larger accounts receivable balances. Accounts payable also increased in response to our higher inventory levels. After consideration of the working capital investments we made in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, and in light of some additional opportunities that may arise related to the public carrier business, we are currently evaluating our revolving line of credit facility and anticipated cash needs, and considering steps to ensure sufficient cash availability to allow us to continue to execute on these opportunities. While we believe we will be able to successfully maintain or obtain additional cash availability as needed, we offer no assurances that we will be able to assure sufficient cash availability for these purposes or that our ability to execute on these opportunities will not be constrained by our access to capital.

 

Net cash used in investing activities of $0.8 million for the first three months of fiscal 2018 was up from expenditures of $0.6 million for the first three months of fiscal 2017. Cash used in both periods was due to capital expenditures, largely comprised of investments in information technology.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $6.6 million for the first three months of fiscal 2018, compared to $3.8 million used in the first three months of fiscal 2017. During the first three months of fiscal 2018, we utilized our revolving credit facility, leading to a net cash inflow relating to financing activities. During the first three months of both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017, we had cash outflows due to cash dividends paid to shareholders. Additionally, during the first three months of fiscal 2017, we had a cash outflow relating to the repayment of our term loan of $1.9 million. As discussed in Note 2 to our Consolidated Financial Statements, included in this Quarterly Report of Form 10-Q, cash flows associated with the tax impact of employee stock

20


 

compensation are now included as a cash flow from operating activities. All amounts disclosed above have been adjusted to reflect this change.

 

During the first quarter of fiscal 2017 we entered into a senior asset based revolving credit facility of up to $35 million with SunTrust Bank, as Administrative Agent, and Lender, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as a Lender. The revolving credit facility is secured by our and our primary operating subsidiaries’ inventory, accounts receivable, and deposit accounts, and replaces our previously existing unsecured revolving credit facility with SunTrust Bank and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association. Interest on borrowings is payable monthly, generally at the Eurodollar rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.5% to 1.75%.  Under certain circumstances, the applicable interest rate is subject to change from the Eurodollar rate plus the applicable margin to the base rate plus an applicable margin. Borrowing availability is determined in part in accordance with a borrowing base, which is generally 85% of eligible receivables minus reserves. The applicable Credit Agreement also contains financial covenants, including a fixed charge coverage ratio that must be maintained at any time during which the borrowing availability, as determined in accordance with the Credit Agreement, is otherwise less than $10 million. The Credit agreement also may limit our ability to engage in specified transactions or activities, including (but not limited to) investments and acquisitions, sales of assets, payment of dividends, issuance of additional debt and other matters. The revolving credit facility has a five-year term and expires on June 24, 2021. As of June 25, 2017, we had an $8.3 million balance on the revolving credit facility; therefore, we had $26.7 million available, subject to the borrowing base limitation and compliance with the other applicable terms of the Credit Agreement, including the covenants referenced above.

 

Effective July 13, 2017, we entered into a First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “First Amendment”), pursuant to which, the term "Availability" as used in the Credit Agreement was amended for a period of time ending no later than October 31, 2017, to allow for the inclusion of an additional sum when calculating "Availability" for certain limited purposes. This additional sum is equal to the lesser of $10 million, and the amount by which the Borrowing Base (as defined in the Credit Agreement) exceeds $35 million. This does not increase the $35 million Aggregate Revolving Commitment Amount (as defined in the Credit Agreement), but will allow the Company greater flexibility under the Credit Agreement for a limited period of time, and was sought by the company in response to business opportunities the Company is pursuing.

 

On March 31, 2009, we entered into a term loan with the Baltimore County Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund for an aggregate principal amount of $250,000. The term loan is payable in equal monthly installments of principal and interest of $2,300, with the balance due at maturity on April 1, 2019. The term loan bears interest at 2.00% per annum and is secured by a subordinate position on our Hunt Valley, Maryland facility. At June 25, 2017, the principal balance of this term loan was $49,700.

 

We have made quarterly dividend payments to holders of our common stock since the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Our most recent quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share was paid in June 2017. On July 19, 2017, we declared a quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.20 per share, payable on August 23, 2017 to shareholders of record as of August 9, 2017.

 

Any future declaration of dividends and the establishment of any corresponding record and payment dates remains subject to further determination from time to time by the Board of Directors.

 

We believe that our existing cash, payments from customers, and availability under our revolving credit facility will be sufficient to support our operations for at least the next twelve months. As discussed above, however, our ability to execute on certain opportunities could be constrained by our access to capital. To minimize interest expense, our policy is to use excess available cash to pay down any balance on our revolving credit facility. We expect to meet short-term and long-term liquidity needs through operating cash flow, supplemented by our

21


 

revolving credit facility. In doing so, the balance on our revolving credit facility could increase depending on our working capital and other cash needs. If we were to undertake an acquisition or other major capital purchases that require funds in excess of existing sources of liquidity, we would look to sources of funding from additional credit facilities, debt and/or equity issuances. As of June 25, 2017, we do not have any material capital expenditure commitments.

 

In addition, our liquidity could be negatively impacted by decreasing revenues and profits resulting from a decrease in demand for our products or a reduction in capital expenditures by our customers, or by the weakened financial conditions of our customers or suppliers, in each case as a result of a downturn in the global economy, among other factors.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

A description of recently issued and adopted accounting pronouncements is contained in Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our unaudited consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

For a detailed discussion on our critical accounting policies, please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 26, 2017.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no material off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Report may contain forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements may generally be identified by the use of the words “may,” “will,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” and similar expressions, but the absence of these words or phrases does not necessarily mean that a statement is not forward looking. Forward looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from those described in or contemplated by any such forward-looking statement for a variety of reasons, including those risks identified in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and other periodic reports filed with the SEC, under the heading “Risk Factors” and otherwise. Consequently, the reader is cautioned to consider all forward-looking statements in light of the risks to which they are subject.

 

We are not able to identify or control all circumstances that could occur in the future that may adversely affect our business and operating results. Without limiting the risks that we describe in our periodic reports and elsewhere, among the risks that could lead to a materially adverse impact on our business or operating results are the following: termination or non-renewal of limited duration agreements or arrangements with our vendors and affinity partners that are typically terminable by either party upon several months or otherwise relatively

22


 

short notice; loss of significant customers or relationships, including affinity relationships; loss of customers either directly or indirectly as a result of consolidation among large wireless service carriers and others within the wireless communications industry; the strength of our customers', vendors' and affinity partners' business; increasingly negative or prolonged adverse economic conditions, including those adversely affecting consumer confidence or consumer or business spending, or otherwise adversely affecting our vendors or customers, including their access to capital or liquidity or our customers’ ability to fund or pay for our products and services; our dependence on a relatively small number of suppliers and vendors, which could hamper our ability to maintain appropriate inventory levels and meet customer demand; changes in customer and product mix that affects gross margin; effect of “conflict minerals” regulations on the supply and cost of certain of our products; failure of our information technology system or distribution system; system security or data protection breaches; technology changes in the wireless communications industry, or technological failures, which could lead to significant inventory obsolescence and/or our inability to offer key products that our customers demand; third-party freight carrier interruption; increased competition, including from manufacturers or national and regional distributors of the products we sell and the absence of significant barriers to entry which could result in pricing and other pressures on profitability and market share; our relative bargaining power and inability to negotiate favorable terms with our vendors and customers; our inability to access capital and obtain financing as and when needed; claims against us for breach of the intellectual property rights of third parties; product liability claims; our inability to protect certain intellectual property, including systems and technologies on which we rely; our inability to hire or retain our key professionals, management and staff; and the possibility that, for unforeseen reasons, we may be delayed in entering into or performing, or may fail to enter into or perform, anticipated contracts or may otherwise be delayed in realizing or fail to realize anticipated revenues or anticipated savings.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Interest Rate Risk:

 

We are exposed to an immaterial level of market risk from changes in interest rates. We have from time to time previously used interest rate swap agreements to modify variable rate obligations to fixed rate obligations, thereby reducing our exposure to interest rate fluctuations. We had no long term variable rate debt obligations as of June 25, 2017. Based on June 25, 2017 borrowing levels, a 1.0% increase or decrease in current market interest rates would have an immaterial effect on our statement of income.

Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk:

 

We are exposed to an immaterial level of market risk from changes in foreign currency rates.  Almost all of our sales are made in U.S. Dollars so we have an immaterial amount of foreign currency risk.  Those sales not made in U.S. Dollars are made in Canadian Dollars.

23


 

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

The Company’s management, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act)) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Based on the evaluation of these controls and procedures required by Rules 13a-15(b) or 15d-15(b) of the Exchange Act, the Company’s management, including the CEO and CFO, have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and to provide reasonable assurance that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. During the period covered by this quarterly report, there have been no changes to the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

Lawsuits and claims are filed against us from time to time in the ordinary course of business. We do not believe that any lawsuits or claims currently pending against the Company, individually or in the aggregate, are material, or will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. In addition, from time to time, we are also subject to review from federal and state taxing authorities in order to validate the amounts of income, sales and/or use taxes which have been claimed and remitted.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

There have been no material changes from the risk factors as previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 26, 2017. Nevertheless, information that we have disclosed or will disclose from time to time in our public filings (including this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other periodic reports filed under the Exchange Act) may provide additional data or information relative to our previously disclosed risk factors. We are not able to identify or control all circumstances that could occur in the future that may adversely affect our business and operating results. Additional risks and uncertainties that management is not aware of or focused on, or that management currently deems immaterial may also adversely affect our business, financial position and results of operations.
