Unaudited notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

1.              Basis of Preparation and Presentation

 

Allied Motion Technologies Inc. (the Company) is engaged in the business of designing, manufacturing and selling motion control products to a broad spectrum of customers throughout the world.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.  All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars using end of period exchange rates. Changes in reported amounts of assets and liabilities of foreign subsidiaries that occur as a result of changes in exchange rates between foreign subsidiaries’ functional currencies and the U.S. dollar are included in foreign currency translation adjustment.  Foreign currency translation adjustment is included in accumulated other comprehensive income, a component of stockholders’ equity in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Revenue and expense transactions use an average rate prevailing during the month of the related transaction. Transaction gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of each Technology Unit (“TU”) are included in the results of operations as incurred.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and include all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements which are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.  The Company believes that the disclosures herein are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.  The financial data for the interim periods may not necessarily be indicative of results to be expected for the year.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions.  Such estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as well as disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

It is suggested that the accompanying condensed interim financial statements be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related Notes to such statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 that was previously filed by the Company.

Stock Incentive Plans

 

The Company’s Stock Incentive Plans provide for the granting of stock awards, including restricted stock, stock options, and stock appreciation rights, to employees and non-employees, including directors of the Company.

 

Restricted Stock

 

In the six months ended June 30, 2012, 134,150 shares of unvested restricted stock were awarded at a weighted average value of $7.13.   Of the restricted shares granted, 30,000 shares have performance based vesting conditions.  The value of the shares is amortized to compensation expense over the related service period, which is normally three years, or over the estimated performance period. Shares of unvested restricted stock are forfeited if a recipient leaves the Company before the vesting date. Shares that are forfeited become available for future awards.

For the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, stock compensation expense, net of forfeitures, of $146,000 and $181,000 was recorded, respectively.    For the six-months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, stock compensation expense, net of forfeitures, of $286,000 and $323,000 was recorded, respectively.

 

5.              Earnings and Dividends per Share

 

Basic income per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding.  Diluted income per share is determined by dividing the net income by the sum of (1) the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and (2) if not anti-dilutive, the effect of stock options and warrants determined utilizing the treasury stock method.  During 2012, no stock options or warrants are outstanding.  As such, there is no dilutive effect on earnings per share for 2012.  The dilutive effect of outstanding stock option awards for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011 was 46,000 and 165,000 shares, respectively.

 

The Company declared and paid two quarterly dividends of $0.025 per share in the first six months of 2012. Total dividends paid were $418,000.  The Company began paying quarterly dividends in the third quarter of 2011.  As such, no dividends were declared or paid in the first six months of 2011.

 

6.              Segment Information

 

ASC Topic “Segment Reporting” requires disclosure of operating segments, which as defined, are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

 

The Company operates in one segment for the manufacture and marketing of motion control products for original equipment manufacturers and end user applications. In accordance with the “Segment Reporting” Topic of the ASC, the Company’s chief operating decision maker has been identified as the Chief Executive Officer and President, which reviews operating results to make decisions about allocating resources and assessing performance for the entire Company. Existing guidance, which is based on a management approach to segment reporting, establishes requirements to report selected segment information quarterly and to report annually entity-wide disclosures about products and services, major customers, and the countries in which the entity holds material assets and reports revenue. All material operating units qualify for aggregation under “Segment Reporting” due to their similar customer base and similarities in: economic characteristics; nature of products and services; and procurement, manufacturing and distribution

9.              Contingent Consideration

 

The Company acquired Östergrens Elmotor AB (Östergrens), located in Stockholm, Sweden on December 30, 2010.  In conjunction with the acquisition of Östergrens, the Company recorded contingent cash consideration based on the seller meeting certain performance criteria. The Company paid $1,350,000 and $332,000 of the contingent consideration in the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The liability was denominated in Swedish Krona.  The amount paid of $1,350,000, exceeds the amount accrued of $1,313,000 as of December 31, 2011, due to fluctuations in the Swedish Krona against the U.S. dollar.  The consideration paid was based on a multiple of the incremental profit achieved in 2011 over 2010 for certain customer projects.

2nd Quarter Overview

 

In the second quarter of 2012, diluted earnings per share of $0.21 was up 19% when compared to the second quarter of 2011, and net income of $1,817,000 was up 23% when compared to the 2nd quarter of 2011.  Revenues were down 7% when compared to the second quarter of last year.  Four percent of the seven percent decrease is due to the weakening of the Euro and Swedish Krona against the dollar when compared to the second quarter of 2011.  Sales to our industrial markets were down, partially offset by increased sales into our medical markets.  Other markets were flat against the same period of last year.

Table of Contents

 

Orders for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 were $23.7 million compared to $25.6 million in the same quarter of last year, down 7%.  Backlog at June 30, 2012 was $36.7 million, reflecting a 3% increase over the backlog at the same time last year.  Backlog is down 10% from the end of the first quarter and down 17% from the end of 2011.  Backlog from quarter to quarter can fluctuate significantly based on customers’ order patterns and the timing of release of products.  Although a softening in the marketplace has occurred, we believe that the markets we serve are recognizing the value of the Company’s motion solutions, and we continue to pursue opportunities that will increase the company’s revenues and profitability.

 

We continued our quarterly dividend program, declaring another $0.025 per share dividend for shareholders on August 1, 2012, totaling to $0.075 per share year to date through the August 2012 dividend.  We believe that our cash flows can support our growth initiatives and reward our shareholders at the same time.

 

Strategy

 

Allied Motion Business Concept: Allied Motion leverages its superior expertise in electro-magnetic, mechanical and electronic motion technology/know-how to provide solutions with the most compact, differentiated products or systems that “change the game” and add value to our customers’ products. Utilizing Allied’s “One Team” Organization, our intent is to be the motion solutions leader in our selected target market segments and to focus on geographic markets where our local support provides an additional competitive advantage. We will enhance our competitive position through the creation of an Operational Excellence Team to lead the implementation of Allied Systematic Tools (AST) and drive continuous improvement in quality, cost, delivery and growth throughout the company.

 

Further development and promotion of our parent brand, Allied Motion, will continue in the future and a Global structure has been defined and is currently being implemented. An example of the Global structure is the One Team Sales Force which has developed nicely in North America and Europe, and we are currently establishing the same capability in Asia. Our Solution Centers differentiate us from our competition and will become functional in North America and Europe in 2012 and the foundation will be also established in Asia in 2012. Together with our One Team Sales Force, the Solution Center is the glue that allows Allied Motion to function and act as One Company, a common request from our customers.

 

Our platform based Product Line approach, which is where we preplan what products are required by our served market segments, provides us the capability to quickly deliver prototypes, be first in with application solutions and secure new design-in wins. While it is relatively simple to achieve this on an independent component level basis, a coordinated effort to tie all of our technologies together as systems is where the real opportunity lies and that will be our emphasis.

 

An emphasis is placed on Gross Margin improvement which requires cost reduction, new products emphasizing more complete Motion Control solutions and a support structure trained to sell, apply and service our products and customers. In order to provide additional solution capabilities, additional Electronic Motion Control product offerings are required and the company continues to add new capabilities and make investments in this area.

 

We also plan to take our commitment to “Allied Systematic Tools”, or AST, to a new level this year as we invest in additional resources as part of our Operational Excellence Team to continuously build and utilize AST to improve efficiencies and eliminate waste throughout our Company.

 

We believe the strategy we have developed for the Company will accomplish our long term goals of increasing shareholder value through the continued strengthening of the foundation necessary to achieve growth in sales and profitability.

NET INCOME    The Company reported net income of $1,817,000, or $0.21 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $1,481,000, or $0.17 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.

 

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA    EBITDA was $3,018,000 for the second quarter of 2012 compared to a $2,751,000 for the same quarter last year.  Adjusted EBITDA was $2,863,000 and $2,932,000 for the second quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively.  EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measurements.  EBITDA consists of income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock compensation expense and certain nonrecurring items.  See information included in “Non - GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

 

REVENUES    Revenues were $26,836,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to $28,862,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, a 7% decrease.  The decrease in revenues is primarily due to lower sales into the industrial and distribution markets, partially offset by increased sales into the medical markets.  The Company experienced flat sales into the vehicle, electronics, and aerospace and defense markets against the same period of the prior year.

 

Sales to U.S. customers accounted for 58% and 54% of our sales in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, with the balance to customers primarily in Europe, Asia and Canada.  Of the 7% decrease in sales, 2.5% is due to lower volumes, and 4.5% due to the Euro and Swedish Krona weakening against the dollar.

 

ORDER BACKLOG    At June 30, 2012, order backlog was approximately $36.7 million, which is up 3% from the same time last year, and down 17% from the backlog at December 31, 2011.

SELLING EXPENSES    Selling expenses were $1,290,000 compared to $1,489,000 for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The 13% decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the Company’s sales force in Sweden and in sales incentive compensation when compared to the same quarter of last year.

 

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES    General and administrative expenses were $2,884,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to $3,394,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  The 15% decrease is primarily a result of lower compensation expense, which includes incentive bonuses.

 

ENGINEERING AND DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES    Engineering and development expenses were $1,563,000 in the second quarter of 2012 and $1,550,000 in the same quarter last year.

 

AMORTIZATION OF INTANGIBLE ASSETS    Amortization of intangible assets expense was $166,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and $187,000 in the same quarter last year.  The 11% decrease is primarily due to the weakening of the Euro when compared to the same period of last year.

 

OTHER INCOME, NET    Other income was $279,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2012, primarily due to a payment received from a former landlord for early termination of the Company’s building lease in Sweden, net of moving expenses.

 

INCOME TAXES    Provision for income taxes was $707,000 and $697,000 for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The effective rate used to record income taxes is based on projected results for the fiscal year.  The effective income tax rate as a percentage of income before income taxes was 28% and 32% for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The effective tax rate is lower than the statutory rate primarily due to differences in state and foreign tax rates.  The effective rate is lower over the same quarter of last year primarily due to changes in the income mix by jurisdiction.

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA    EBITDA was $5,122,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to a $5,101,000 for the same period last year.  Adjusted EBITDA was $5,345,000 and $5,424,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measurements.  EBITDA consists of income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock compensation expense and certain nonrecurring items.  See information included in “Non - GAAP Measures” below for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

 

REVENUES    Revenues were $53,683,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $55,586,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  The 3% decrease in revenues reflects lower sales into the industrial, distribution and aerospace and defense markets, partially offset by increased sales into the medical and vehicle markets, with other markets remaining flat against the same period of the prior year.

 

Sales to U.S. customers accounted for 56% and 52% of our sales in the first six months of 2012 and 2011, respectively, with the balance to customers primarily in Europe, Canada and Asia.  Of the 3% decrease in sales, 2.5% is due to the weakening of the Euro and the Swedish Krona against the dollar and 0.5% is due to lower volumes.

 

GROSS MARGINS    Gross margin as a percentage of revenues was 29% and 30% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The decrease in gross margins is due to a one-time charge in the first quarter to cover the estimated cost of replacing products in the field due to an incorrect component used by one of the Company’s suppliers.

 

SELLING EXPENSES    Selling expenses were $2,655,000 and $2,951,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively.  The 10% decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the Company’s sales force in Sweden and in sales incentive compensation when compared to the same quarter of last year.

AMORTIZATION OF INTANGIBLE ASSETS    Amortization of intangible assets was $340,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and $367,000 for the same period last year.  The 7% decrease is the result of the weakening of the Euro against the dollar over the same period of last year.

 

OTHER INCOME, NET    Other income was $296,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012.  The income reported is primarily due to payment received from a former landlord for early termination of the Company’s building lease in Sweden, net of moving expenses.

 

INCOME TAXES    Provision for income taxes was $1,157,000 and $1,268,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The effective rate used to record income taxes is based on projected results for the fiscal year.  The effective income tax rate as a percentage of income before income taxes was 28% and 32% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The effective tax rate is

lower than the statutory rate primarily due to differences in state and foreign tax rates.  The effective rate is lower over the same period of last year primarily due to change in the income mix by jurisdiction.

 

Non-GAAP Measures

 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are provided for information purposes only and are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles.

 

The Company believes EBITDA is often a useful measure of a Company’s operating performance and is a significant basis used by the Company’s management to measure the operating performance of the Company’s business because EBITDA excludes charges for depreciation, amortization and interest expense that have resulted from our debt financings, as well as our provision for income tax expense.  EBITDA is frequently used as one of the bases for comparing businesses in the Company’s industry.

 

The Company also believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information about the operating performance of its business.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock compensation expense, as well as certain non-recurring items. Nonrecurring items are either income or expenses which do not occur regularly as part of the normal activities of the Company. For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the income from a former landlord, net of moving expenses, of $301,000 has been excluded from adjusted EBITDA.  For the six months ended June 30, 2012, a charge of $238,000 in the first quarter to replace an incorrect electronic component and the income from former landlord of $301,000 are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.

 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure for determining operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

The Company’s calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 is as follows (in thousands):

compared to $1,978,000 for the same period last year.   The decrease in cash provided from operations this year is due to higher incentive bonus payments and higher tax payments.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $2,882,000 and $1,325,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase includes a payment of $1,350,000, which is the final portion of consideration for the Östergrens acquisition, and an increase in purchases of property and equipment of $539,000 over the same period of last year.

 

Net cash used in financing activities was $71,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $430,000 for the same period last year. The decrease in cash used in 2012 is primarily due to the Company paying off debt in the first six months of 2011.  The activity in 2012 consists of dividend payments to shareholders, primarily offset by more Company stock purchased by the Allied Motion Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), based on higher company contributions to the plan for 2011.  The Company began to pay quarterly dividends in August 2011, and thus, had not paid dividends in the first six months of 2011.

 

The average outstanding borrowings for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $158,000.  As of June 30, 2012, the amount available to borrow under the Company’s various lines-of-credit was approximately $8,250,000.

 

The Company’s Credit Agreement is used for borrowing needs that may occur in the United States and Europe. The Credit Agreement provides revolving credit up to $4 million and €3 million. The Credit Agreement contains certain financial covenants related to maximum leverage, minimum fixed charge coverage and minimum tangible net worth of the Company. The Credit Agreement expires on October 26, 2013.

 

The Company also has a Credit Line Facility in China providing credit of approximately $700,000 (RMB 4,500,000) to provide financing availability for working capital needs for the Company’s subsidiaries in China. There is approximately $550,000 (RMB 3,500,000) available under the facility at June 30, 2012.

 

The Company has bank overdraft facilities with foreign banks in Europe. The facilities had no outstanding balance as of June 30, 2012. The amount available under the overdraft facilities was approximately $700,000 (€ 300,000 and 2,100,000 SEK).

 

As part of the Company’s quarterly cash dividend program, the Board of Directors declared a dividend for shareholders as of August 13, 2012.  Dividends per share through the first six months of 2012 were $0.05 per share.

 

The Company’s working capital, capital expenditure and dividend requirements are expected to be funded from cash provided by operations and amounts available under the Company’s credit facilities.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The Company has prepared its financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and these statements necessarily include some amounts that are based on informed judgments and estimates of management.  The Company’s significant accounting policies are discussed in Note 1 in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.  The policies are reviewed on a regular basis.  The Company’s critical accounting policies are subject to judgments and uncertainties which affect the application of such policies.  The Company uses historical experience and all available information to make these judgments and estimates.  As discussed below the Company’s financial position or results of operations may be materially different when reported under different conditions or when using different assumptions in the application of such policies.  In the event

estimates or assumptions prove to be different from actual amounts, adjustments are made in subsequent periods to reflect more current information.  The Company’s critical accounting policies include:

 

The Company maintains allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments.  The allowance is based on historical experience and judgments based on current economic and customer specific factors.  Significant judgments are made by management in connection with establishing the Company’s customers’ ability to pay at the time of shipment.  Despite this assessment, from time to time, the Company’s customers are unable to meet their payment obligations.  The Company continues to monitor customers’ credit worthiness, and use judgment in establishing the estimated amounts of customer receivables which may not be collected.  A significant change in the liquidity or financial position of the Company’s customers could have a material adverse impact on the collectibility of accounts receivable and future operating results.

 

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or market.  The Company monitors and forecasts expected inventory needs based on sales forecasts.  Inventory is written down or written off when it becomes obsolete or when it is deemed excess.  These determinations involve the exercise of significant judgment by management.  If actual market conditions are significantly different from those projected by management, the recorded reserve may be adjusted, and such adjustments may have a significant impact on the Company’s results of operations.  Demand for the Company’s products can fluctuate significantly, and in the past the Company has recorded substantial charges for inventory obsolescence.

 

The Company records deferred tax assets and liabilities for the estimated future tax effects of temporary differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements, and for operating loss and tax credit carryforwards.  Realization of the recorded deferred tax assets is dependent upon the Company generating sufficient taxable income in the appropriate tax jurisdiction in future years to obtain benefit from the reversal of net deductible temporary differences and from tax credit and operating loss carryforwards.  A valuation allowance is provided to the extent that management deems it more likely than not that the net deferred tax assets will not be realized.  The amount of deferred tax assets considered realizable is subject to adjustment in future periods if estimates of future taxable income are changed.

 

The Company provides pension and postretirement benefits for certain domestic retirees and records the cost of the obligations based on estimates.  The net periodic costs are recognized as employees render the services necessary to earn the benefits.  Several assumptions are used to calculate the expense and liability related to the plans including the discount rate, the expected rate of return on plan assets, the future rate of compensation increases and health care cost increases.  The discount rate is selected based on a bond pricing model that relates to the projected future cash flows of benefit obligations.  Actuarial assumptions used are based on demographic factors such as retirement and mortality.  Actual results could vary materially from the Company’s actuarial assumptions, which may have an impact on the amount of reported expense or liability for pension or postretirement benefits.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

The Company’s controls and procedures include those designed to ensure that material information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Under the supervision and with the participation of management, the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information is recorded, processed, summarized and reported in a timely manner as required by Exchange Act reports such as this Form 10-Q and concluded that as of the end of the Company’s most recent fiscal quarter they are effective.

 

There have not been any changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
