ADEPT TECHNOLOGY, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. General
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. However, certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The information furnished in this report reflects all adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the interim periods presented. The results for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year or for any other future period.
The condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 included in Adept Technology, Inc.’s (“Adept” or the “Company”) Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on September 6, 2011.
The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Therefore, actual results could differ from those estimates and could have a material impact on Adept’s condensed consolidated financial statements, and it is possible that such changes could occur in the near term.
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior-period balances to present the financial statements on a consistent basis with the current year presentation. Such reclassifications have not changed previously reported net income (loss) or shareholders' equity.
2. Stock-Based Compensation
The Company has adopted equity incentive plans that provide for the grant to employees of stock-based awards, including without limitation, stock options, restricted shares, and restricted stock units, of Adept common stock. In addition, certain of these plans permit the grant of non-statutory stock-based awards to consultants and non-employee directors. To date, Adept has primarily granted options under its existing stock plans and, commencing in fiscal 2009, grants shares of restricted stock on a limited basis to executive and certain non-executive employees as incentive compensation. Option awards are granted with an exercise price equal to the market price of the Company’s stock on the date of grant. Those option awards generally have ten-year contractual terms. The Company also has an employee stock purchase plan (“ESPP”) that allows employees to purchase a limited number of shares of its common stock at a discount of 15% of the market value at certain plan-defined dates that are established at six-month intervals.
Adept has an employee stock purchase plan and two equity compensation plans currently in effect, including the 2003 Stock Option Plan and 2005 Equity Incentive Plan. As of March 31, 2012, there were 459,396 shares available for issuance under the 2008 Employee Stock Purchase Plan. As of March 31, 2012, the outstanding options, restricted shares, and available shares remaining for issuance are:
 
Plan

Outstanding Options and Restricted Stock
 
Available shares

2003 Stock Option Plan
366,355

 
15,349

2005 Equity Incentive Plan
907,202

 
853,636

Options are also outstanding pursuant to four equity compensation plans which have expired or been terminated. These include the 1993 Stock Option Plan, the 1995 Director Stock Option Plan, the 2001 Stock Option Plan, and the 2004 Director Option Plan, which have, respectively, 37,301, 1,200, 88,989, and 107,000 shares subject to outstanding options.
Under these plans, for employee grants, vesting of options is generally monthly in equal installments over a four year period. Restricted stock grants made to Adept executive officers and other senior management employees under annual performance programs pursuant to the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan are subject to vesting quarterly over two years following the end of the relevant fiscal year of performance. In April 2009, certain restricted stock grants were made to employees with the first half vesting on June 30, 2009 and the second half vesting on September 30, 2009. Initial director grants made prior to March 2010

6


vest one-fourth on the first anniversary of the grant, then monthly in equal installments thereafter for three years. Annual non-employee director grants made prior to March 2010 vest monthly in equal installments over a four year period. In March 2010, the Board revised director compensation so that annual option grants of 6,000 shares to non-employee directors made after March 2010 vest in full on the date of the annual meeting of stockholders following the meeting at which the director is elected and the annual grant is made, and the initial option grant of 10,000 shares to non-employee directors vests in the amount of 50% of the grant on the first annual meeting of stockholders following the initial appointment or election of the director and the remaining 50% vests at the second annual meeting of stockholders of the Company following the initial appointment or election of the director. In March 2010, the Board authorized a one-time option grant with 100% vesting to occur at the 2010 annual meeting of stockholders to reflect the increase in equity compensation for the 2010 year of service on the Board. On November 9, 2011, the stockholders of the Company approved the amendment of the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan which included an increase of shares of the Company's common stock authorized for issuance under such plan in an amount equal to 750,000 shares, plus the 17,376 shares remaining issuable under the 2004 Director Stock Option Plan, which was terminated upon such approval.
The Company recognizes the fair value of stock compensation as an expense in the calculation of net income (loss), which is recognized ratably over the vesting period of the individual equity instruments. All stock compensation recorded during the nine months ended March 31, 2012 has been accounted for as an equity instrument.
The Company recorded $1.0 million and $2.6 million of stock-based compensation expense on its unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively, for its stock plans, ESPP, and MobileRobots and InMoTx acquisition-related equity issuances. The Company did not record an income-tax benefit for the stock compensation expense because of the extent of its net operating loss carry-forwards. The Company utilized the Black-Scholes option pricing model for estimating the fair value of the stock-based compensation. The weighted average grant-date fair values of the options granted under the equity incentive plans for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011 were $2.52 and $3.49, respectively, for employees and non-employee directors. The weighted average grant-date fair values of the shares subject to purchase under the ESPP for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011 were $1.05 and $2.25, respectively. The weighted average grant-date fair values were calculated using the following weighted average assumptions:

The dividend yield of zero is based on the fact that the Company has never paid cash dividends, is restricted from paying cash dividends by its credit facility, and has no present intention to pay cash dividends. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of Adept’s common stock over the period commensurate with the expected life of the options or ESPP shares. The risk-free interest rate is based on the observed and expected life of options or ESPP shares by Adept’s employees and indexed to the Treasury Constant Maturity rate. The expected life in years is based on the historic time to post-vesting exercise and forfeitures of the options or ESPP shares. Starting January 1, 2010, ESPP shares are issued in April and November.
For the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, stock-based compensation expense was based on the Company’s historical experience of option cancellations prior to vesting. The Company has assumed an annualized forfeiture rate of 5% for each period for its options. The Company records additional expense if the actual forfeiture rate is lower than estimated, and records a recovery of prior expense if the actual forfeiture rate is higher than estimated.

As of March 31, 2012, there was $663,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock options and restricted stock awards granted and outstanding; the cost of which is expected to be recognized through fiscal year 2014, with a weighted average remaining period of 1.21 years for stock options and 0.25 years for stock awards.
In fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011, Adept issued 468,956 shares of unregistered restricted stock outside of the equity incentive plans in connection with the acquisitions of MobileRobots and InMoTx which were accounted for as compensation. The 468,956 shares do not include shares issued and accounted for as merger consideration and the complete stock issuance information for each merger is discussed in Note 15 to the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
The Company issued 368,956 shares of restricted stock in connection with the acquisition of MobileRobots, to vest in equal thirds on each of the first, second, and third anniversaries of the closing date of the acquisition, contingent upon the continued employment of such stockholder, subject to acceleration or forfeiture in certain circumstances, and subject to the indemnification obligations of the MobileRobots stockholders as described in Note 15 to the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. On April 15, 2011, one of the MobileRobots founders terminated employment with Adept and vesting was accelerated on 173,074 shares of restricted stock issued in connection with the acquisition of MobileRobots. On June 25, 2011, 65,293 shares of restricted stock vested in the first annual vesting of the shares issued pursuant to the merger agreement. On September 30, 2011, another MobileRobots founder terminated employment with Adept, and vesting was accelerated on 115,383 shares of restricted stock. As of March 31, 2012, there were 15,206 shares issued in connection with the merger remaining to vest.
In fiscal 2011, the Company also made a grant of 100,000 shares of unregistered restricted stock in connection with the acquisition of InMoTx to its chief technology officer to vest on the third anniversary of the acquisition contingent upon his continued employment, subject to acceleration or forfeiture in certain circumstances. On September 20, 2011, the InMoTx chief technology officer entered into a separation agreement with the Company to terminate employment on January 31, 2012. Of the 100,000 shares issued, 80,500 shares were forfeited on September 20, 2011, and 19,500 shares remain outstanding and will vest on June 30, 2012, subject to the satisfactory completion of the requirements set forth in the separation agreement.

In October 2011, the Company announced the decision to consolidate the InMoTx operations in Denmark into the Company's Pleasanton, California operations. Due to these restructuring activities and resulting revised revenue projection for the division, the Company performed a goodwill and intangible impairment evaluation as of March 31, 2012, and concluded there was no impairment.

7. Financing Arrangements
Adept has a revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank, or SVB. Adept originally entered into the Loan and Security Agreement and related agreements for the revolving line on May 1, 2009. On March 25, 2011, Adept entered into an additional Loan and Security Agreement (EX-IM Loan Facility) and related agreements with SVB, pursuant to which a portion of the revolving line (the “EX-IM Line”) is guaranteed by the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and Adept's potential borrowing base is expanded by enabling advances against foreign accounts receivable and export-related inventory. On February 6, 2012, Adept entered into amendments to the May 2009 Loan and Security Agreement (as previously amended), the March 2011 Loan and Security Agreement (EX-IM Loan Facility) and related agreements.

The February 2012 amendments extended the maturity date of the EX-IM Line from March 24, 2012 to March 25, 2013, and modified the financial covenants Adept must meet during the term of the revolving line. As modified, Adept must maintain (a) liquidity (domestic cash plus the available domestic borrowing base) of at least $3.5 million, and (b) minimum aggregate quarterly EBITDA (measured at the end of each fiscal quarter) equal to or exceeding specified amounts (which are lower than the amounts applicable prior to the February 2012 amendments) for each fiscal quarter beginning December 2011. The quarterly EBITDA amounts in the Loan and Security Agreement are minimum amounts for financial covenant purposes only, and do not represent projections of Adept's financial results. The domestic portion of the revolving line no longer includes a sublimit for foreign exchange contracts, cash management services and letters of credit. Adept's available borrowing base under the revolving line is reduced by the principal balance of outstanding advances under the domestic portion of the revolving line and the EX-IM Line.

The Loan and Security Agreement requires Adept to cause its U.S. customers to transmit payments on accounts receivable to a lockbox account at SVB. During the second quarter of 2012, SVB began applying all qualifying daily domestic cash receipts on either the next or second business day to repay outstanding obligations under the Loan and Security Agreement with any excess transferred to Adept's deposit account with SVB. This lockbox arrangement will continue to apply following the February 2012 amendments, regardless of Adept's Adjusted Quick Ratio of unrestricted cash, cash equivalents and accounts receivable to current liabilities. Paragraph 470-10-45-5A of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 470, Debt (“ASC 470”) indicates that when such arrangements exist, all outstanding borrowings under a revolving credit facility such as the Loan Security Agreement are to be classified as a current liability. As such, Adept classifies the outstanding line of credit balance as a current liability, and the maturity date for borrowings against domestic accounts receivable remains March 25, 2013. Adept may re-borrow funds under the revolving line if there is available borrowing base to do so, and Adept meets the other conditions precedent for borrowing set forth in the loan documents.

Adept will pay the collateral monitoring fee of $850 per month if there is any principal or interest outstanding under the revolving line of credit during such month, regardless of Adept's Adjusted Quick Ratio. Adept paid a $50,000 facility fee in connection with the amendment of the loan documents and the renewal of the EX-IM Line. Please refer to the audited consolidated financial statements and Note 6 thereto for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, included in Adept's Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on September 6, 2011, for additional disclosures regarding the revolving line of credit.
8. Warranties
The Company’s warranty policy is included in its terms of sale and states that there are no rights of return, and that a refund may be made at Adept’s discretion, and only if there is an identified fault in the product and the customer has complied with Adept’s approved maintenance schedules and procedures, and the product has not been subject to abuse. The Company provides for the estimated cost of product warranties at the time revenue is recognized. While the Company engages in extensive product quality programs and processes, including actively monitoring and evaluating the quality of its components suppliers, the Company’s warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates, material usage and service labor and delivery costs incurred in correcting a product failure. Should actual product failure rates, material usage, service labor or delivery costs differ from the Company’s estimates, revisions to the estimated warranty liability would be required.

9. Legal Proceedings
From time to time, the Company is party to various legal proceedings or claims, either asserted or unasserted, which arise in the ordinary course of its business. The Company has reviewed pending legal matters and believes that the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition or results of operations.
Adept has in the past received communications from third parties asserting that it has infringed upon certain patents and other intellectual property rights of others, or seeking indemnification against alleged infringement. While it is not feasible to predict or determine the likelihood or outcome of any actual or potential actions from such assertions against the Company, the Company believes the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
10. Income Taxes
The Company provides for income taxes during interim reporting periods using the discrete period method. The Company also maintains a liability to cover the cost of additional tax exposure items pertaining to the filing of federal and state income tax returns, as well as filings in foreign jurisdictions. Each of these filing jurisdictions may audit the tax returns filed and propose adjustments. Adjustments may arise from a variety of factors, including different interpretations of statutes and regulations. The Company recorded a tax provision of $157,000 and $198,000 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, respectively, primarily due to taxes in non-US jurisdictions and state minimum taxes. The Company recorded a tax provision of $14,000 and $51,000 for the three and nine months ended March 26, 2011, respectively, primarily due to taxes in non-US jurisdictions, state minimum taxes and state gross receipt taxes.
The Company had gross unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $8.7 million and $8.3 million as of March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively. If all of these unrecognized tax benefits for March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2011 were recognized, approximately $2.2 million and $1.8 million, respectively, would benefit the income tax provision. In addition, the Company does not expect any material changes to the estimated amount of the liability associated with its uncertain tax positions within the next twelve months.
The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, California and various state and foreign tax jurisdictions in which it has a subsidiary or branch operation. The tax years 2001 to 2011 remain open to examination by the U.S. and state tax authorities, and the tax years 2005 to 2011 remain open to examination by the foreign tax authorities.

Adept’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties accrued on any unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had accrued interest or penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $82,000.

12. Segment Information
The Company discloses certain information regarding operating segments, products and services, geographic areas of operation and major customers. This reporting is based upon the “management approach”: how management organizes the Company’s operating segments for which separate financial information is (i) available and (ii) evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. Adept’s chief operating decision maker is its Chief Executive Officer, or CEO.
Adept’s business is focused towards delivering intelligent flexible production automation products, components and services for assembly, packaging, material handling and lab automation applications under two operating segments: Robotics and Services and Support.
The Robotics segment provides intelligent motion control systems, production automation software, including vision-guidance and application software, and robot mechanisms, including robots with autonomous capabilities, to customers.
The Services and Support segment provides support services to customers including: spare parts for, and/or remanufacture of, robot mechanisms; information regarding the use of the Company’s automation equipment; ongoing support of installed systems; consulting services for applications; and training courses ranging from system operation and maintenance to advanced programming, geared towards manufacturing engineers who design and implement automation lines.
The Company evaluates performance and allocates resources based on segment revenue and segment operating income. Segment operating income is comprised of income before unallocated research, development and engineering expenses, unallocated selling, general and administrative expenses, interest income, and interest and other expenses.
Management does not fully allocate research, development and engineering expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses when making capital spending and expense funding decisions or assessing segment performance. There is no inter-segment revenue recognized. Transfers of materials or labor between segments are recorded at cost.

13. Foreign Currency Translation
The Company has determined that the local currency is the functional currency for its foreign subsidiaries. The Company’s foreign subsidiaries’ balance sheet accounts are translated at current period ending exchange rates and statements of operations are translated at the average rate for the period. Translation gains and losses are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in stockholders’ equity. Foreign currency transaction losses were $168,000 and $343,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively. Foreign currency transaction losses were $389,000 and $643,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively.
The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012 were mainly generated from realized losses related to non-permanent intercompany debt. The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 were mainly generated from unrealized losses related to the revaluation of payables held in U.S. dollars and payable in yen and realized losses related to non-permanent intercompany debt denominated in euros.
The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the three months ended March 26, 2011 were mainly generated from losses related to the strengthening of the euro and the yen against the dollar. Realized and unrealized losses were recorded on US dollar payments to Adept’s parent company from the European subsidiaries and on parent company payments for payables due in yen. The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the nine months ended March 26, 2011 were mainly generated from realized losses from US dollars used to pay accounts payable in yen as the yen strengthened against the dollar during the period, and unrealized losses related to the revaluation of accounts receivable billed in US dollars and translated to euros.
14. Restructuring Charges
In October 2011, the Company announced the decision to consolidate the InMoTx operations in Denmark into the Company's Pleasanton, California operations. Consolidation activities began during the second quarter of fiscal 2012, and were substantially completed at March 31, 2012.
During the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, the Company incurred $791,000 and $1.2 million, respectively, in restructuring charges related to the consolidation of the InMoTx operations. Lease termination costs were $37,000 and $142,000, respectively, severance costs were $34,000 and $124,000, respectively, salaries related to the restructuring were $304,000 and $512,000, respectively, inventory write-offs were $259,000 and $259,000, respectively, stock compensation expense was $95,000 and $95,000, respectively, and other miscellaneous costs were $62,000 and $82,000, respectively.

Restructuring expenses paid in cash, which do not include inventory write-offs, stock compensation expense, accruals and other costs were $456,000 and $683,000 during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, respectively.

Due to these restructuring activities and the resulting revised revenue projection for the division, the Company performed a goodwill and intangible impairment evaluation as of March 31, 2012, and concluded there was no impairment.
15. Acquisitions
InMoTx Acquisition
On January 10, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of InMoTx. The results of InMoTx's operations have been included in Adept's consolidated financial statements since that date. Based in Denmark before the consolidation, InMoTx is a provider of industry leading robotic platform solutions and gripping technology for the global food processing market.

15


Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, the merger consideration payable to InMoTx shareholders included cash and stock valued at up to $4.3 million. Upon the merger, Adept paid $1.5 million in cash, and issued 199,979 shares of its common stock to InMoTx shareholders, of which all shares are subject to a holdback arrangement to secure the InMoTx shareholder indemnity obligations for an eighteen month period. Adept also issued 100,000 shares of its restricted common stock to the InMoTx chief technology officer, to vest on the third anniversary of the merger, contingent upon his continued employment by Adept or a subsidiary on the third anniversary of the merger, subject to acceleration for certain exceptions for disability, termination without cause or termination for good reason or a change of control. Adept also agreed to make certain contingent annual payments in cash to the InMoTx shareholders in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the revenues of the acquired business and related products, and to the InMoTx chief technology officer in an amount equal to two percent (2%) of the revenues of the acquired business and related products achieved in excess of specified thresholds during the Adept four fiscal quarters closest to the calendar year periods of 2011 through 2013, for which the current estimated value is $0.
In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Adept agreed upon indemnification amounts of $508,000 due from the former shareholders of InMoTx relating to customer claims for matters arising prior to the acquisition by Adept. Of the 199,979 shares issued on the merger date for the acquisition of InMoTx, 119,145 shares are being forfeited by the holders and returned to Adept in the fourth quarter of 2012. The indemnification stock receivable is included in account receivable in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012. This receivable is partially offset by agreed upon payments of $280,000, finalized on March 28, 2012, due to InMoTx customer matters arising prior to the acquisition, to be paid in quarterly installments beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 through the third quarter of fiscal 2013. This liability is included in other accrued liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012. Of the $508,000 stock receivable due at March 31, 2012, $90,000 increased earnings in the current quarter.
The 199,979 shares of common stock issued upon the merger were valued at Adept's stock value on the merger date of $4.89 per share, totaling $977,897, and were recognized as consideration upon the merger. The 100,000 shares of restricted common stock issued to the InMoTx chief technology officer would have been recognized on the target date specified in the merger agreement. However, on September 20, 2011, the InMoTx chief technology officer entered into a separation agreement with the Company to terminate employment on January 31, 2012. Of the 100,000 share grant issued upon the merger, 80,500 shares were forfeited as of September 20, 2011, and 19,500 shares are still outstanding and will vest on June 30, 2012, subject to the satisfactory completion of the requirements set forth in the separation agreement. In addition, any contingent annual cash payments of 2% of revenues to the same officer will be recognized as compensation expense when and if the revenue targets specified in the merger agreement are met.
Including cash paid upon the acquisition of $1.5 million, the total value of merger consideration recognized upon the acquisition of InMoTx was $2.6 million.
The selling stockholders agreed to indemnify Adept for breaches of representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Merger Agreement for losses up to $1 million subject to certain exceptions for core corporate and intellectual property representations or taxes for which the indemnification obligation is up to $1.5 million plus the value of 199,979 shares. The indemnification obligations generally expired twelve months from the date of closing in January 2012, with certain exceptions for core corporate and intellectual property representations, taxes, fraud, and designated customer claims.
The fair value of receivables acquired was $14,000, and all amounts were collected subsequent to the acquisition.

Intangible assets of $1.3 million consist of $1.1 million in developed technology and $231,000 in trademarks and trade names. The intangible assets were valued using the relief from royalty method, using a rate of 9.1% based upon third party licensing agreements and industry guidelines for the developed technology, and a rate of 1.0% for the trademarks and trade names, based upon the relative age and importance of the trademarks and trade names. Of the total purchase consideration, $1.4 million was recognized as goodwill, which represents the excess of the purchase consideration of the acquired business over the fair value of the underlying net assets acquired and liabilities assumed.
The potential annual cash payments to the InMoTx shareholders in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the revenues over a predefined threshold of the acquired business and related products were valued at $80,000 on the merger date and recognized as a contingent liability. At March 31, 2012, the fair value of the contingent cash payments was $0. The Company took into consideration historical results and revenue projections to estimate the fair value of the contingent consideration, and to determine the probability that these revenue thresholds would be met on the targeted dates outlined in the acquisition agreement.
The Company recognized $498,000 in acquisition-related costs related to InMoTx, which were expensed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. These costs are included as part of selling, general and administrative costs in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
Had the InMoTx acquisition occurred at the beginning of fiscal 2011, the Company's net loss would have been $3.3 million and $7.3 million for the three and nine months ended March 26, 2011, respectively, and the Company's diluted net loss per share would have been $0.38 and $0.84, respectively.
The unaudited pro forma combined financial data set forth above for fiscal 2011 reflect the InMoTx acquisition and related events as if they had been consummated on July 1, 2010, the first day of Adept's 2011 fiscal year. The pro forma financial information is presented for informational purposes only and is not intended to represent or be indicative of the results of operations that would have been achieved if the acquisition had been completed as of the date indicated, and should not be taken as representative of future consolidated results of operations or financial condition of Adept. The pro forma information is not fact and there can be no assurance that the Company's actual results will not differ significantly from such pro forma information. Accordingly, such pro forma information is not intended to be indicative of the Company's future results of operations or results that might be achieved, and you should not rely on such pro forma information as being indicative of the Company's future results.
MobileRobots Acquisition
On June 25, 2010, the Company acquired the outstanding common shares of MobileRobots. The results of MobileRobots' operations have been included in Adept's consolidated financial statements since that date. MobileRobots, based in New Hampshire, is a provider of autonomous robot and automated guided vehicle technologies.
The merger consideration paid to MobileRobots stockholders was $3.0 million, including cash of $1.0 million, net of cash acquired of $100,000 and subject to adjustment for debt and working capital, and 394,403 shares of Adept common stock with

17


a market value of $2.0 million. An additional 368,956 shares were accounted for as compensation, with a market value of $1.9 million, are discussed below.
Of the 763,359 shares issued, 190,841 shares were unrestricted, recognized as merger consideration, and vested in full at the acquisition date market price reported by Nasdaq of $5.10 per share, with a total value of approximately $973,000. Of the total shares issued in the merger, 203,562 shares of restricted stock with a total acquisition date value of $1.0 million also qualified as consideration, however these shares were subject to the indemnification obligations of the stockholders as described below. The remaining 368,956 shares of restricted stock issued to stockholders were scheduled to be released in equal thirds on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the closing date of the acquisition, contingent upon the continued employment of such stockholders subject to acceleration or forfeiture in certain circumstances, and recognized as compensation expense over the vesting period if these requirements were met. Of these 368,956 shares, vesting was accelerated on 173,074 shares and is no longer at risk of forfeiture due to the termination of one of MobileRobots founders on April 15, 2011. In addition, on June 25, 2011, 65,293 shares of the 368,956 shares of restricted stock vested on the first annual vesting after the MobileRobots acquisition, and on September 30, 2011, due to the Company's ongoing consolidation activities, another MobileRobots founder terminated employment with Adept, and vesting was accelerated on 115,383 shares of restricted stock. As of March 31, 2012, there were 15,206 shares remaining to vest under this issuance.
Adept also agreed to pay bonus amounts in cash up to an aggregate $320,000 to employees of MobileRobots after fiscal 2011 if certain MobileRobots product revenue targets were met for fiscal 2011. These contingent cash bonus amounts were payable to MobileRobots employees (not solely its stockholders) and generally required continued employment of the potential recipient through the contingent payment period, and therefore qualify as compensation expense, to be recognized in earnings when or if the targets are met. MobileRobots fiscal 2011 revenues met the minimum revenue threshold as detailed in the merger agreement, and a bonus of $100,000 was accrued in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and paid in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
The MobileRobots stockholders agreed to indemnify Adept for breaches of representations, warranties and covenants contained in the merger agreement up to $3.0 million for a period of eighteen months from the date of closing, with exceptions for core corporate and intellectual property representations, taxes and fraud, which expired during the current period. The expiration for the core corporate and intellectual property representations expires on the second anniversary from the close of the acquisition and the tax indemnification shall survive until the close of business on the 30th day following the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations with respect to the tax liabilities in question. At closing, 203,562 shares were placed in an escrow fund for 18 months as security for the indemnification obligations and were released to the stockholders in December 2011, other than shares remaining subject to vesting.
During fiscal 2011, the Company concluded that the restricted stock issued in the acquisition in fiscal 2010 and placed into an escrow fund as discussed above constituted consideration, not compensation, and should be accounted for in shareholders' equity and additional goodwill. This change in accounting for the restricted stock was reflected in the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 included in Adept Technology, Inc.’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on September 6, 2011.

Intangible assets of $1.2 million consist of $0.9 million in developed technology and patents, and $0.3 million in customer base. The developed technology and patents were valued using the relief from royalty method, using a rate of 3.5% based upon

18


third party licensing agreements and industry guidelines for the developed technology. The MobileRobots customer base was valued using the multi-period excess earnings method (“MPEEM”), which values an asset by discounting the future economic benefits of the customer base. Of the total purchase consideration, $1.2 million was recognized as goodwill, which represents the excess of the purchase consideration of the acquired business over the fair value of the underlying net assets acquired and liabilities assumed.
In addition, at June 30, 2011, the Company increased the MobileRobots purchase price allocation for goodwill by $307,000 to record a reduction in deferred tax assets related to the completion of the MobileRobots tax return filings for 2010.
16. Leases
On January 1, 2011, Adept entered into a new lease in conjunction with the opening of our new facility in Shanghai, China. The lease agreement is for premises of 8,296 square feet, for a term of one and a half years and an option to extend for an additional four-year period. Annual rental payments are 506,350 Chinese Yuan Renminbi. Based on historical exchange rates, we approximate the US dollar annual expense to range between $75,000 and $80,000, barring unforeseen fluctuations in exchange rates.
In October 2008, Adept entered into two new leases to relocate its principal executive offices and research and manufacturing operations from Livermore, California to Pleasanton, California. The first lease agreement is for premises of 33,864 square feet, with a right of first offer on 11,059 additional square feet in Pleasanton, California for a term of seven years and an option to extend for an additional five-year period. Annual rent payments are $690,826 initially, subject to a 3% annual increase. During the second quarter of fiscal 2012, we received a four month rent abatement on this lease, the savings of which will be recognized over the remaining life of the lease through December 31, 2015. The annual rent savings from the abatement is approximately $55,000. The second lease agreement is for premises near the location of the first lease, consists of 23,027 square feet and includes a right of first offer on 12,000 additional square feet in Pleasanton, California for a term of seven years, with an option to extend for one additional five-year period, for initial annual rent of $414,486, subject to a 3% annual increase.
Adept also leases facilities for sales and operations in Dortmund, Germany. Other leased Adept facilities include Amherst, New Hampshire; Wissous and Annecy, France; Frederikshavn, Denmark; and Singapore. All of Adept’s facilities are used by both of the Company’s two reportable business segments. In October 2011, the Company announced the decision to consolidate the InMoTx operations in Frederikshavn, Denmark into the Company's Pleasanton, California operations. As of March 31, 2012, Adept had $63,000 accrued in lease termination costs associated with this consolidation.

OVERVIEW
We provide intelligent robotics systems, the core of which are our motion controls systems, integrated vision-guidance technology and application software, which are sold in combination with our own proprietary robot mechanisms. Our vision-guidance technology is tightly integrated with our motion controls technology, and this is a key differentiator for Adept. We also have autonomous robot and fleet management capabilities that enhance our offerings for target markets. In addition, we provide a full complement of robotics services and support for our customers. Through sales to system integrators, OEM partners and end-user companies, we sell our robotics systems and services into a few broad industries where we believe we can provide the best solutions for particular applications. We operate in two segments: Robotics and Services and Support.
Strategy
Our strategy focuses on a few specific industries where the use of automation is currently fast-growing or is expected to grow over the long term and where we can provide significant product differentiation. This strategy reflects our belief that new opportunities exist in the expansion of application level solutions in vertical markets, where automation has been largely non-existent or extremely inflexible. The industries we have targeted are: medical, logistics, clean-tech markets and packaging. Currently, we are focusing the majority of our investment on our MobileRobots technology and packaging solutions applications. We are investing significantly in the MobileRobots technology to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the medical, logistics, and solar markets as it pertains to mobile technology. For example, in the medical industry we have formed a partnership to be the exclusive provider of autonomous mobile robots to SwissLog Healthcare Solutions for use in hospitals, labs and clinics to transport specimens, lab samples and pharmaceuticals, and in February 2012, we launched the new Adept Courier, a small autonomous vehicle that simplifies the everyday task of moving goods, materials, samples, or parts around an office or production environment. Since most logistics problems require a fleet of robots combined with our new enterprise fleet manager to effectively solve, we believe our unique mobile robot technology has tremendous long term potential across a wide range of industries, and we believe this business will be characterized by larger average order sizes and better visibility

20


than our traditional businesses.
The packaging market has continued to provide new applications even during the last few years of worldwide economic weakness and has proven the strength of our Quattro robot in this industry. We believe our acquisition of InMoTx in January 2011 further strengthens our offerings for the packaging market, as InMoTx brings differentiated technology for global food processing applications. We believe the natural foods market is a largely untapped automation market, and the technology we acquired from InMoTx is an enabler for these applications. The InMoTx acquisition also brings changes to our standard business model, as order sizes of these packaging cells are typically larger than our normal component sales, revenues are received in installments over the project term and deferred until recognizable, and each cell includes high margin consumable grippers which must be replaced periodically over the life of the cell, generating a secondary revenue stream.
In the solar market, we have achieved new design wins with solar cell manufacturers that we believe will provide long-term opportunity for Adept as these manufacturers begin to equip their automation capabilities and ramp up their production operations. We hope to capitalize on the growing opportunities for automation in China as a rapidly developing market for industrial robots over the long term with our new sales and service office in Shanghai, which opened near the end of fiscal 2011. This office will allow us more visible access and support to our growing customer base in the region. Additionally, we continue to address our sales efforts towards our traditional markets, such as the German automotive electronics and industrial markets, where our products are well positioned, demand is strengthening and we believe significant long-term opportunity exists.
Included in our growth strategy is an ongoing search for possible businesses, product lines or technologies for partnership or collaboration. Our focus is on pursuing partnerships that would broaden our solutions capabilities, further strengthen our position in key markets, increase our revenues and expand our operational scale. Our long-term strategy is to grow our new MobileRobots and Packaging Solutions initiatives to enable these businesses to achieve 50% of our total revenues, while improving our gross margin to exceed 45% and increase net margins over time in parallel with our growth efforts.
Recent Acquisitions
On January 10, 2011, we acquired InMoTx, Inc. (“InMoTx”), a privately-held provider of robotic platform solutions and gripping technology for the global food processing market, based in Denmark before the consolidation, pursuant to a merger agreement dated January 4, 2011, under which we paid $1.5 million in cash, and issued 199,979 shares of our common stock to InMoTx shareholders, of which all shares were made subject to a holdback arrangement to secure the InMoTx shareholder indemnity obligations for an eighteen month period. Adept also issued 100,000 shares of our common stock to the InMoTx chief technology officer, to vest on the third anniversary of the merger, contingent upon his continued employment by Adept or a subsidiary, subject to certain exceptions for disability, termination without cause or termination for good reason or a change of control. On September 20, 2011, the InMoTx chief technology officer entered into a separation agreement with the Company to terminate employment on January 31, 2012. Of the 100,000 share grant issued upon the merger, 80,500 shares were forfeited as of September 20, 2011, and 19,500 shares remain outstanding and will vest on June 30, 2012, subject to the satisfactory completion of the requirements set forth in the separation agreement. In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Adept agreed upon indemnification amounts of $508,000 due from the former shareholders of InMoTx relating to customer claims for matters arising prior to the acquisition by Adept. Of the 199,979 shares issued on the merger date for the acquisition of InMoTx, 119,145 shares are being forfeited by the holders and were returned to Adept in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.
We also agreed to make certain contingent annual payments in cash to the former InMoTx shareholders and to the chief technology officer in an amount equal to ten percent (10%) and two percent (2%), respectively, of the revenues InMoTx achieves in excess of specified thresholds during the three annual periods following the merger date, the fair value of which at March 31, 2012 was $0. The results of InMoTx’s operations have been included in our consolidated financial statements since January 11, 2011.
In October 2011, we announced the decision to consolidate the InMoTx operations in Denmark into our Pleasanton, California operations. Consolidation activities began during the second quarter of fiscal 2012, and as of the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the consolidation activities were substantially completed.
On June 25, 2010, we acquired MobileRobots Inc. (“MobileRobots”), a privately-held provider of autonomous robot and automated guided vehicle technologies based in New Hampshire, pursuant to a merger agreement dated June 13, 2010, under which we paid approximately $1.0 million in cash and issued 763,359 shares of Adept Common Stock. Adept also agreed to pay bonus amounts in cash up to an aggregate $320,000 to employees of MobileRobots after fiscal 2011 if certain MobileRobots product revenue targets were met for fiscal 2011. MobileRobots fiscal 2011 revenues met the minimum revenue threshold defined in the merger agreement, and a bonus of $100,000 was paid in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
The results of MobileRobots’ operations have been included in our consolidated financial statements since June 25, 2010.

Trends in Our Business
During the third quarter of fiscal 2012, our revenues grew 37% compared with the same period in the previous year, driven primarily by stronger demand from some of our traditional markets, including the automotive and industrial markets in Europe and the U.S., the Asian disk drive markets, and the European and Domestic medical and pharmaceutical markets. In addition, our MobileRobots initiative showed strong gains in the commercial side of the business, on which we have been focusing during the quarter. We are encouraged by the performance in our target markets and by the signs of returning demand from our traditional industries. Sales growth in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 benefited by an increase in revenues from the international disk drive market compared to the same period last year, as this industry showed signs of recovering from the cyclical downturn the industry entered during the second quarter of fiscal 2011. While it is difficult to predict the timing of investment cycles within the disk drive industry, we believe this market will continue to experience modest growth during the remainder of 2012. We believe that our acquisition of InMoTx will help drive future growth in the packaging market over the long-term, as the gripping technology that InMoTx brings provides a unique advantage in certain markets, particularly hygienic packaging for the natural foods market. We believe the positive growth in packaging we experienced during the second and third quarter of 2012 will continue to build. Over the long-term, packaging presents both a large opportunity and the potential to substantially effect Adept's financial model, as the average order size and visibility is better than Adept's traditional components business. These characteristics, along with the consumables and service revenues to the company, have potential to result in more consistent, sustainable revenues over the long-term.
On a geographic basis, our U.S. sales increased 36% in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with the same period in the prior year and accounted for 32% of total revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and the third quarter of fiscal 2011. This increase compared to the same period last year was driven primarily by increased domestic sales of our packaging solutions, as well as increased sales to the domestic medical and pharmaceutical markets, and increased sales of our MobileRobots commercial applications in the medical industry. We believe the MobileRobots and packaging solutions products will comprise an increasing portion of our U.S. business over time, as our new MobileRobots technology has enabled us to address new opportunities in material handling applications in the medical, semiconductor and industrial markets, and our new gripper technology acquired from InMoTx has enabled us to expand our opportunities in the packaging solutions markets.
In Asia, sales to the disk drive market increased considerably in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The disk drive increase was partially offset by lower sales in the packaging market, resulting in a 132% revenue increase compared to the prior year period. Asian sales accounted for 17% of total revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to 10% in the previous year period. Though the disk drive industry showed gains during the third quarter which may continue, we remain cautious due to the cyclical nature of the industry and are actively pursuing opportunities in Asia outside of the disk drive markets. We believe that the packaging and solar markets in Asia present us with significant long-term opportunities over time, and our new presence in China should help to capitalize on these opportunities.
European sales increased 17% in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with the previous year period and accounted for 48% of total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to 56% in the previous year period. The European increase was primarily the result of higher sales to the automotive and industrial markets in Europe, which showed strong growth during the quarter. Much of the demand for our products in the last few years has come from Europe and we believe the region will continue to be an important long-term market for our products, both in traditional sectors such as automotive, electronics and industrial, and in our target growth markets, including packaging and solar.
Product Developments
During the third quarter of fiscal 2012, we introduced the Adept Courier, a small autonomous vehicle that simplifies the everyday task of moving goods, materials, samples, or parts around an office or production environment. Using self-navigation software, the Adept Courier finds its own way to destinations, drives around obstacles in its path, and can be deployed in a matter of hours, thus reducing manual transport tasks, shortening turnaround time, and increasing operational efficiencies by re-applying expensive labor from moving goods to higher-value tasks.
During the second quarter of fiscal 2012, we introduced the Adept Viper™ s1700D, a high-performance 6-axis robot. Featuring new motors that are faster and more efficient, the Viper s1700D delivers higher speed motion and increased productivity. Like the previous Viper 1700 robot, the new s1700D offers a long reach and high payload capacity within a small footprint. Designed for applications that require fast and precise automation, the Viper s1700D is ideal for material handling, machine tending, packaging, cutting and assembly.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, we introduced a new robotic platform, or “cell” for the packaging industry, the Adept Packaging Automation Cell, or PAC. The Adept PAC is the first high-speed robotic packaging platform designed to address the hygienic requirements of natural foods packaging. The packaging cell is built with a rigid stainless steel frame for wash down capabilities and integrated with best-in-class products from Adept, such as the world’s fastest USDA-accepted robot, ultra-

22


compact motion and vision controllers, touch-screen operator interface, and predefined programming recipes for advanced conveyor-tracking and vision-guidance. Adept PAC is designed to address some of the long-standing challenges associated with flexible automation such as deployment time and integration cost, and can be easily configured to a wide range of packaging applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The Adept Pac platform is similar to the Octomation products acquired in the InMoTx acquisition, and we are working to combine the strengths of each product in future product generations.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, we also introduced our first packaging solution that integrates automated guidance technology from MobileRobots, the Adept MT400 robot. Powered by MobileRobots’ Motivity Core controls and software, the Adept MT400 independently navigates, performs tasks, speaks, responds and carries out other jobs automatically on demand. The Adept MT400 supports the major logistics challenges faced in manufacturing environments, including line replenishment, flexibility in routing, scheduling and exception handling, and the costs associated with deployment.
Additionally, in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, we introduced the Adept Quattro s800H, which expands the high-throughput capabilities of our Quattro robot family to address applications with larger work space requirements.
We believe that as the packaging industry continues to move away from manual labor and outdated packaging machinery, these latest platforms place us in a very strong position to benefit from the increasing demand for more dexterous, flexible and affordable automation solutions.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, revenues were $17.5 million, up 37% from revenues of $12.8 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011, as a result of higher Robotics revenues in the period.
For the nine months ended March 31, 2012, revenues were $49.2 million, up 21% from revenues of $40.7 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011, as a result of higher Robotics revenues in the period.
Robotics segment revenues, which result from the sale of our intelligent robotics systems, vision-guidance technology and/or third party robot mechanisms, were $14.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of 49% from $9.8 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011. The increase in robotics revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to: increased sales in the disk drive markets, which increased $1.4 million, or 645% primarily in Malaysia; increased sales in the medical and pharmaceutical markets, which increased $998,000, or 274%, primarily in Germany and the United States; increased sales of our commercial MobileRobots material handling applications, primarily in the medical markets in the United States, which increased to $930,000 from $0 in the third quarter of last year; higher sales in the packaging markets, primarily in the United States, which increased $595,000 or 23%; and higher sales in the traditional automotive and industrial markets, which increased $910,000, or 30%, primarily in Germany.

Robotics segment revenues were $40.7 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of 28% from $31.9 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The increase in Robotics revenues during the nine months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to: higher sales in the traditional automotive and industrial markets, which increased $3.3 million, or 49%, primarily in Germany; increased sales of our commercial MobileRobots material handling applications, primarily in the industrial, medical and semiconductor markets, which increased to $3.0 million from $0 compared to last year; increased sales to the consumer goods market, which increased $1.3 million, or 969%, primarily in Germany; increased sales to the consumer electronics market, which increased $1.4 million, or 48%, primarily in Asia; and increased sales to the medical and pharmaceutical industries, which increased $1.1 million, or 57%, primarily in Germany and Canada, compared to the prior year period. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $1.2 million, or 28%, in sales to the disk drive markets, primarily in the United States.
Services and Support revenues, which result from the sale of robotics services and support as well as replacement parts, were $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, down 4% from $3.0 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011. Service revenues to the medical and pharmaceutical industry, primarily in the United States, increased $205,000, or 598%, from the third quarter of last year, however service sales to other miscellaneous industries, primarily in France, decreased $359,000, or 51%, completely offsetting the gains made in the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Services and Support revenues were $8.5 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, a decrease of 3% compared to $8.8 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. Service revenues to other miscellaneous industries, primarily in France, decreased $379,000, or 25%. This decrease was partially offset by increased service revenues to the medical and pharmaceutical industries, which increased $193,000, or 267%, compared to the prior year period.

U.S. revenues were $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, up 36% compared with $4.1 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011. The increase during the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to increased packaging sales, which increased $872,000, or 87%, increased sales to the domestic medical and pharmaceutical markets, which increased $549,000, or 184%, and increased commercial MobileRobot sales, which increased to $552,000 from zero in the previous period. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $487,000, or 83%, in sales to the domestic automotive and industrial markets. U.S. revenues were $13.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, up 6% compared with $13.0 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The increase during the nine months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to an increase of $1.1 million in sales of our commercial MobileRobots material handling applications from $0 in the same period last year, primarily in the medical markets.
Total international revenues were $11.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, up 37% compared with $8.7 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011. Total international revenues were $35.5 million for the nine months ended

24


March 31, 2012, up 28% from $27.7 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The individual regions are explained below.
Revenues from Asia increased 132% during the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared with the prior-year period primarily as a result of $1.6 million in sales to the disk drive markets, compared to $91,000 in the previous year period. This increase was partially offset by a decrease of $480,000, or 88%, in sales to the packaging markets in Asia compared to the third quarter of the previous year. Revenues from Asia increased 28% during the nine months ended March 31, 2012 compared with the prior-year period primarily as a result of a $934,000, or 56%, increase in sales to the consumer electronics markets, primarily in China, a $680,000 increase in sales of our commercial MobileRobots material handling applications, primarily in Singapore, compared to $0 in the previous year period, and a $567,000, or 16%, increase in sales to the disk drive markets in Malaysia.
European sales increased 17% during the three months ended March 31, 2012, primarily as a result of higher sales to the automotive and industrial markets, mainly in Germany, which increased $1.3 million, or 53% from the third quarter of the prior year. During the nine months ended March 31, 2012, European revenues increased 18% compared to the nine months ended March 26, 2011, primarily as a result of a $3.4 million, or 62%, increase in sales to the European automotive and industrial markets.
Revenues from other countries remained a relatively small percentage of the Company’s sales in the third quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, however compared to the same periods in the prior-year, have experienced significant growth. Revenues were $581,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, up 131% compared with $251,000 for the three months ended March 26, 2011. The increase during the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to an increase of $146,000 in sales to the medical and pharmaceutical industries compared to zero in the previous period. Revenues were $2.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, up 276% compared with $736,000 for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The increase in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to an increase of $996,000 in sales of our commercial MobileRobots material handling applications, primarily in Canada, compared to $0 in the same period last year, as well as an increase of $655,000, or 157%, in sales to the packaging markets, and an increase of $371,000 in sales to the medical and pharmaceutical industries from zero in the previous year period.

Gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 41.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to 44.8% for the three months ended March 26, 2011. For the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 42.6% and 42.5%, respectively. Lower gross margin during the three months ended March 31, 2012 primarily resulted from product mix, and a large order from Germany for a lower margin traditional product, which drove the margin down compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and is not expected to recur in this magnitude in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 . During the nine months ended March 31, 2012, there were no material changes to gross margin.
We may experience significant fluctuations in our gross margin percentage from period to period due to changes in volume, changes in availability of components, changes in product configuration, increased price-based competition, changes in sales mix of products and/or changes in operating costs.

Research, development and engineering (“R&D”) costs are expensed as incurred, with the exception of software development costs incurred subsequent to establishing technological feasibility and up to the general release of the software products that are capitalized. Technological feasibility is demonstrated by the completion of a working model or a detailed program design. Capitalized costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over either two or three years, whichever term is the estimated life of the software product.
R&D expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $2.3 million, or 13% of revenues, up 8% from $2.1 million, or 17% of revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2011. R&D expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 were $6.7 million, or 14% of revenues, up 21% from $5.5 million, or 14% of revenues for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. Higher R&D expenses in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012 compared with the prior-year periods primarily resulted from the addition of expenses relating to investment in our MobileRobots and Packaging Solutions lines of business. We expect R&D expenses to remain fairly flat in the near-term, as increased investment in our new initiatives should be offset by the absence of R&D expenses associated with the recently closed Denmark entity.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses consist primarily of employee compensation, professional fees arising from legal, auditing and other consulting services, indirect costs for service, as well as tradeshow participation and other marketing costs.

SG&A expenses were $5.1 million, or 29% of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012, down 11% from $5.8 million, representing 45% of revenues for the three months ended March 26, 2011. SG&A expenses were $15.3 million, or 31% of revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, down 6% from $16.3 million, representing 40% of revenues for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. Lower SG&A expenses in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012 compared with the prior-year periods primarily resulted from lower stock compensation expense as compared to the prior period as a result of the acquisition of MobileRobots in June 2010 and increased operational efficiencies, which were offset by the addition of expenses in connection with our InMoTx business, which primarily included salary and benefits.
Restructuring Charges. For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, we recorded restructuring charges of $791,000 and $1.2 million related to the consolidation of InMoTx's Denmark facility into our Pleasanton, California operations. Lease termination costs were $37,000 and $142,000, respectively, severance costs were $34,000 and $124,000, respectively, salaries related to the restructuring were $304,000 and $512,000, respectively, inventory write-offs were $259,000 and $259,000, respectively, stock compensation expense was $95,000 and $95,000, respectively, and other miscellaneous costs were $62,000 and $82,000, respectively. The consolidation activities were substantially concluded during the third quarter of fiscal 2012. For the three months ended March 26, 2011, we recorded restructuring charges of $595,000 related to office consolidation, sales

26


reorganization and business streamlining measures implemented during the quarter, which included $498,000 in accelerated stock compensation expense due to vesting and release of restricted stock in connection with employee terminations. We believe the consolidation of the Denmark entity into our Pleasanton, California operations will save approximately $500,000 in expenses per quarter, which we expect to be partially offset by additional investment in R&D and sales and marketing.
Amortization. Amortization expense totaled $117,000 and $97,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively, and $350,000 and $213,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively, for the amortization of intangible assets acquired as part of the MobileRobots acquisition in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 and the InMoTx acquisition in the beginning of the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
Stock Compensation Expense. Stock-based compensation expense for our equity incentive plans, ESPP and restricted stock grants was $151,000 and $891,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively, and $1.0 million and $2.6 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively. In addition, we incurred $95,000 in stock compensation expense related to the consolidation of the InMoTx operations in Denmark into our Pleasanton, California operations which was recognized as restructuring expense on the condensed consolidated statement of operations. The decrease in stock compensation during the three months ended March 31, 2012 was due to higher stock expense for grants made in connection with the acquisition of InMoTx in the prior year period. The decrease in stock compensation expense during the nine months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to $589,000 in stock awards expense recognized in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 related to restricted stock issued in connection with our acquisition of MobileRobots and the first, second and third quarter vesting of the fiscal 2010 management performance award. This decrease was partially offset by $280,000 in accelerated stock compensation expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 related to the ongoing consolidation efforts related to MobileRobots. We did not record an income-tax benefit for stock compensation expense in any of the periods presented because of the extent of our net operating loss carry forwards. See Note 2 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about our recognition of stock-based compensation expense.
Operating Income (Loss). We recorded an operating loss of $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared with an operating loss of $2.9 million for the three months ended March 26, 2011, and an operating loss of $2.6 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, compared with an operating loss of $5.3 million for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The lower operating losses recorded in the fiscal 2012 periods were primarily the result of higher revenues during the periods ended March 31, 2012 compared to March 26, 2011.
Interest Income (Expense), Net. We recorded interest expense, net of $59,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to $39,000 for the three months ended March 26, 2011. For the nine months ended March 31, 2012, interest expense, net was $172,000 compared to $64,000 for the nine months ended March 26, 2011. The increase in interest expense during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012 resulted from increased borrowings under our line of credit during 2012.
Foreign Currency Exchange Gain (Loss). Adept’s foreign subsidiaries’ balance sheet accounts are translated at current period ending exchange rates and statements of operations are translated at the average rate for the period. Translation gains and losses are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in stockholders’ equity. We recorded a loss on foreign currency transactions of $168,000 and $343,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, respectively. For the nine months ended March 31, 2012 and March 26, 2011, we recorded a loss on foreign currency transactions of $389,000 and $643,000, respectively. The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012 were mainly generated from realized losses related to non-permanent intercompany debt. The foreign currency transaction losses recorded in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 were mainly generated from unrealized losses related to the revaluation of payables held in U.S. dollar and payable in yen and realized losses related to non-permanent intercompany debt.
The foreign currency transaction loss recorded in the three months ended March 26, 2011 was mainly generated from losses related to the strengthening of the Euro and the Yen against the dollar. Realized and unrealized losses were recorded on US dollar payments to the parent company from the European subsidiaries and on parent company payments for payables due in yen. The foreign currency transaction loss recorded in the nine months ended March 26, 2011 was mainly generated from realized losses from US dollars used to pay accounts payable in yen as the yen strengthened against the dollar during the period, and unrealized losses related to the revaluation of accounts receivable billed in US dollars and translated to euros.
As we conduct business on a global basis we are exposed to adverse or beneficial movements in foreign currency exchange rates. The dollar/euro and the dollar/yen markets currently present the largest exchange rate risk for Adept. In order to protect Adept’s financial performance from the adverse effects of foreign currency fluctuation, we are currently developing a hedging strategy to manage this risk.
Provision for Income Taxes. Adept typically provides for income taxes during interim reporting periods based upon an estimate of our annual effective tax rate. We also maintain a liability to cover the cost of additional tax exposure items on the filing of

27


federal and state income tax returns as well as filings in foreign jurisdictions. Each of these filing jurisdictions may audit the tax returns filed and propose adjustments. Adjustments arise from a variety of factors, including different interpretations of statutes and regulations.
We recorded a tax provision of $157,000 and $198,000 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, respectively, which related primarily to taxes in non-US jurisdictions and state minimum taxes. We recorded a tax provision of $14,000 and $51,000 for the three and nine months ended March 26, 2011, respectively, which related primarily to taxes in non-US jurisdictions, state minimum taxes and state gross receipt taxes.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash and Cash Equivalents: As of March 31, 2012, cash and cash equivalents were $6.0 million, a decrease of $2.6 million from $8.6 million as of June 30, 2011.
Operating Activities: Adept used $4.1 million of cash from operating activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2012. Net loss of $3.4 million and other uses of cash in operating activities were offset by non-cash charges, including depreciation and amortization of $1.1 million and stock-based compensation of $1.0 million. Included in other uses of cash in operating activities was a net increase in accounts receivable of $3.2 million, and a decrease in accounts payable of $827,000.
Investing Activities: Adept incurred $996,000 of capital purchases and capitalization of software development costs during the nine months ended March 31, 2012, and received proceeds of $81,000 from sales of property and equipment.
Financing Activities: Adept used $2.0 million of cash for financing activities during the nine months ended March 31, 2012. The Company borrowed $1.9 million on our Silicon Valley Bank line of credit, net of payments during the period ending with a principal balance of $5.8 million, paid $35,000 on capital leases, incurred a net increase of $56,000 in other long-term borrowings, and used $65,000 to pay for taxes for restricted stock awards surrendered to satisfy withholding tax obligations. The Company received proceeds of $120,000 from the exercise of options for stock through Adept’s employee stock option program.
Liabilities: In connection with the acquisition of InMoTx on January 10, 2011, we established certain contingent liabilities. Contingent consideration payable to the former InMoTx shareholders includes a potential payment in cash equal to 10% of the amount by which revenue for the three years following the merger date exceeds the revenue threshold specified in the merger agreement. At March 31, 2012, the fair value of the contingent cash payments was $0. Also related to the acquisition of InMoTx is a potential payment in cash compensation payable to the InMoTx chief technology officer equal to 2% of the amount by which revenue for the three years following the merger date exceeds the revenue threshold specified in the merger agreement. This potential cash payment would be recognized as compensation expense if it is earned. At March 31, 2012, the fair value of the 2% contingent cash payment to the chief technology officer was also $0.
Liquidity: Adept has no off-balance-sheet arrangements, and we believe our cash and cash equivalents, together with funds available under our revolving credit line, will provide us with sufficient liquidity for at least the next 12 months. However, our current cash resources are limited, and we expect to have to manage cash carefully in the near term to fund our operating requirements.
In October 2011, the Company announced the decision to consolidate the InMoTx operations in Denmark into the Company's Pleasanton, California operations, and as of March 31, 2012, the consolidation of the Denmark facility was substantially completed. We recognized $1.2 million in restructuring expense during the second and third quarters of fiscal 2012, of which $398,000 was non-cash expenses, $683,000 was paid in cash during the second and third quarters of 2012, and $133,000 was accrued to be paid in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.
On March 28, 2012, we agreed to payments in the amount of $280,000 for InMoTx customer matters arising prior to the acquisition, to be paid in quarterly installments beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 through the third quarter of fiscal 2013. This liability is included in other accrued liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012, and is offset by the indemnification stock receivable included in account receivable in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012.
During the second quarter of fiscal 2012, we received a four month rent abatement on the lease of our Pleasanton, California facility, beginning in October 2011 and ending in January 2012, the savings of which will be recognized over the remaining life of the lease through December 31, 2015. The annual rent savings from the abatement is approximately $55,000.
Silicon Valley Bank Line of Credit: We have a revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank, or SVB. On February 6, 2012, Adept entered into an Amendment No. 4 to Loan and Security Agreement and Amendment No. 1 to Loan and Security Agreement (EX-IM Loan Facility) with SVB to amend the existing Loan and Security Agreement entered into on May 1, 2009 (as previously amended), and Loan and Security Agreement (EX-IM Loan Facility) entered into on March 25, 2011 (the “EX-

28


IM Loan Agreement”). Pursuant to the EX-IM Loan Agreement, as amended, a portion of the revolving line (the “EX-IM Line”) is guaranteed by the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and Adept's potential borrowing base is expanded by enabling advances against certain foreign accounts receivable and export-related inventory.

The revolving line of credit (including the EX-IM Line) matures on March 25, 2013. All borrowings bear interest at the prime rate announced from time to time by SVB plus 1.75%. Adept's maximum aggregate borrowing availability is $10 million. Adept may borrow up to the lesser of $10 million or 80% of Adept's eligible domestic accounts receivable, and up to the lesser of $8 million or the borrowing base calculated by applying specified advance rates to Adept's eligible foreign accounts receivable and inventory destined for export from the United States. The loan documents specify the criteria for determining eligible domestic and foreign accounts receivable and eligible inventory destined for export. The revolving line no longer includes a sublimit for foreign exchange contracts, cash management services and letters of credit, and Adept's available borrowing base is reduced by the principal balance of outstanding advances under the domestic revolving line and EX-IM Line. Adept and certain subsidiaries have granted SVB a security interest in substantially all of their respective assets (including certain shares of subsidiaries) to secure the obligations outstanding under the revolving line, and under any separate bank service agreements that may be entered into by Adept and SVB covering foreign exchange contracts, cash management services or letters of credit.

Adept must meet certain financial covenants under the loan documents, which were modified in February 2012. As modified, Adept must maintain (a) liquidity (domestic cash plus the available domestic borrowing base) of at least $3.5 million, and (b) minimum aggregate quarterly EBITDA (measured at the end of each fiscal quarter) equal to or exceeding specified amounts (which are lower than the amounts applicable prior to the February 2012 amendments) for each quarter beginning December 2011. The quarterly EBITDA amounts in the Loan and Security Agreement are minimum amounts for financial covenant purposes only, and do not represent projections of Adept's financial results.

The Loan and Security Agreement requires Adept to cause its U.S. customers to transmit payments on accounts receivable to a lockbox account at SVB. Under the February 2012 amendments, SVB will now apply all collections (regardless of Adept's Adjusted Quick Ratio of unrestricted cash, cash equivalents and accounts receivable to current liabilities) from this lockbox account toward repayment of Adept's obligations to SVB, and transfer any excess to Adept's designated deposit account with SVB. Adept will pay the collateral monitoring fee of $850 per month if there is any principal or interest outstanding under the revolving line of credit during such month, regardless of Adept's Adjusted Quick Ratio. Adept may re-borrow funds under the revolving line if there is available borrowing base to do so, and Adept meets the other conditions precedent for borrowing set forth in the loan documents.

We also must remain in compliance with various other loan covenants, and Adept's ability to make borrowings is subject to ongoing conditions precedent. These provisions, as well as circumstances under which Adept would be deemed to be in default under the loan documents and the fees payable by Adept in connection with the revolving line, are described in further detail under Liquidity and Capital Resources in Adept's annual report on Form 10-K filed September 6, 2011. During the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Adept paid a facility fee of $50,000 to extend the maturity date of the EX-IM Line to March 25, 2013.

Adept was in compliance with the covenants of the loan documents as of March 31, 2012. At March 31, 2012, Adept had an outstanding principal balance of $5.8 million under the revolving line, up from $4.3 million at the end of the last quarter, reflecting principal repayments from domestic cash receipts and re-borrowing for cash management purposes during the third quarter of fiscal 2012, which bears interest at SVB's announced prime rate plus 1.75%. Based on operating needs, strategic activities and other factors, we may further utilize the line of credit in the future or seek alternative credit or other financing in the future to pursue additional expansion opportunities or make other investments in our growth.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

We are a "smaller reporting company" as defined by Regulation S-K and as such, we are not required to provide the information contained in this item pursuant to Regulation S-K.

ITEM 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As of the end of the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012, Adept carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of members of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of Adept’s disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our CEO and our CFO have concluded based on this evaluation, that as of March 31, 2012, Adept’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the end of the fiscal quarter to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit with the SEC is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Adept’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act). Internal control over financial reporting is a process, including policies and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurances regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external reporting purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. For purposes of issuing its management report in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011 to conclude that internal control over financial reporting was effective as of such fiscal year end, the Company’s management assessed our internal control over financial reporting based on the Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to an exemption from such requirement.
A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met under all potential conditions, regardless of how remote, and may not prevent or detect all error and all fraud. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within Adept have been prevented or detected. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
In connection with our continued monitoring and maintenance of our controls procedures as part of the implementation of section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, we continue to review and improve the effectiveness of our internal controls. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, we continued to evaluate and strengthen MobileRobots' accounting procedures and controls and make revisions accordingly to align their transactional procedures with Adept's general processes designed to ensure effectiveness of our internal controls. During the third quarter ended March 31, 2012, we also continued the evaluation of the systems and controls at InMoTx's following its acquisition in January 2011, continuing the process of aligning InMoTx's procedures to Adept's processes in connection with the consolidation of InMoTx operations into our Pleasanton, California facilities, which was substantially completed during the third quarter. There have been no other changes in Adept’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act) during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, Adept’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

From time to time, we are party to various legal proceedings or claims, either asserted or unasserted, which arise in the ordinary course of our business. We have reviewed pending legal matters and believe that the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.
We have in the past received communications from third parties asserting that we have infringed certain patents and other intellectual property rights of others, or seeking indemnification against alleged infringement. While it is not feasible to predict or determine the likelihood or outcome of any actual or potential actions from such assertions against us, we believe the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
ITEM 1A.
RISK FACTORS

Before deciding to purchase, hold or sell our common stock, you should carefully consider the cautionary statements and risk factors described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 6, 2011.

Our restructuring efforts may not be effective, might have unintended consequences, and could negatively impact our business.
From time to time, we have restructured our operations in response to changes in the economic environment, our industry and demand. To lower our operating costs during fiscal 2011, we implemented organizational improvements designed to reduce our ongoing costs, which included office consolidation, reorganization and streamlining of our North American operations, and incurred related restructuring expenses. During fiscal 2012, we have consolidated our Denmark operations from our InMoTx acquisition into our existing facilities and operations, for which we have incurred restructuring expenses in fiscal 2012. Despite our efforts to structure the company and business to operate in a cost-effective manner while adequately facing competitive pressures and fulfilling customer needs, some cost-cutting measures could have unexpected negative consequences. While our restructuring efforts reduced our costs, we cannot be certain that all restructuring efforts will be successful, or that we will not be required to implement additional restructuring activities in the future. If we are unable to structure our operations effectively or if we face costly termination claims, our operations and prospects could be harmed.
