NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of Zix Corporation (ZixCorp, the Company, we, our, us) should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Companys 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K. These financial statements are unaudited, but have been prepared in the ordinary course of business for the purpose of providing information with respect to the covered interim periods. Management of the Company believes that all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of such periods have been included and are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any future interim periods or for the full fiscal year.
2. Recent Accounting Standards and Pronouncements
Testing for Goodwill Impairment
In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) amended guidance on testing goodwill for impairment. Under the new guidance, entities testing goodwill for impairment have the option of performing a qualitative assessment before calculating the fair value of a reporting unit in step 1 of the goodwill impairment test. If entities determine, on the basis of qualitative factors, that the fair value of a reporting unit is more likely than not less than the carrying value amount, the two-step impairment test would be required. Otherwise, further testing would not be needed. The new guidance does not change how goodwill is calculated, nor does it revise the requirement to test goodwill annually for impairment or between tests if events or circumstances warrant. The amended guidance became effective for us on January 1, 2012. This new guidance did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Presentation of Other Comprehensive Income
In June 2011, the FASB issued guidance that requires entities to report components of comprehensive income in either a continuous statement of comprehensive income or two separate but consecutive statements. The guidance removes the option to present the components of other comprehensive income (OCI) as part of the statement of stockholders equity. This guidance became effective for us for January 1, 2012, and must be applied retrospectively for all periods presented in the financial statements. The new guidance does not apply to entities that have no items of OCI in any period presented. This new guidance did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
3. Stock Options and Stock-based Employee Compensation
On April 13, 2012, the Companys Board of Directors adopted the Zix Corporation 2012 Incentive Plan (the 2012 Plan). The 2012 Plan was approved by the Companys shareholders at the annual meeting held on June 6, 2012. Under the terms of the 2012 Plan, 2,700,000 shares are available for issuance, plus a number of additional shares (not to exceed 1,327,000) underlying options outstanding under certain of the Companys prior equity plans that thereafter terminate or expire unexercised, or are cancelled, forfeited, or lapse for any reason. See Proposal 4 Approval of 2012 Incentive Plan contained in the Companys Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (File No. 000-17995) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2012, for additional information regarding the 2012 Plan.
As of June 30, 2012, there were 7,169,547 options outstanding and 2,704,020 available for grant. For the three month and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, the total stock-based employee compensation expense was recorded to the following line items of the Companys condensed consolidated statements of operations:
There were 130,268 and 142,368 stock options exercised for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively. There were 224,791 and 635,591 stock options exercised for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, respectively. There was no excess tax benefit recorded in the three month period ended June 30, 2012, related to the 130,268 options exercises. The excess tax benefit recorded in the six month periods ended June 30, 2012, related to the 142,368 option exercises was $1,000. A deferred tax asset totaling $136,000 and $63,000, resulting from stock-based compensation expense relating to the Companys U.S. operations, was recorded for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. As of June 30, 2012, there was $1,752,000 of total unrecognized stock-based compensation related to non-vested stock-based compensation awards granted under the stock option plans. This cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.22 years.
Stock Option Activity
The following is a summary of all stock option transactions during the three months ended June 30, 2012:
Of the above-described stock options outstanding at June 30, 2012, 1,710,652 of such stock options outstanding had an exercise price lower than the market price of the Companys common stock.
For additional information regarding the Companys Stock Options and Stock-based Employee Compensation, see Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
4. Supplemental Cash Flow Information
Supplemental cash flow information relating to interest, taxes and non-cash activities:
5. Receivables, net
The allowance for doubtful accounts includes all specific accounts receivable which we believe are likely not collectible based on known information. In addition, we record 2.5% of all accounts receivable greater than 90 days past due, net of those accounts specifically reserved, as a general allowance against accounts that could potentially become uncollectible.
The note receivable represents the remaining outstanding balance of an original note related to the sale of a product line in 2005 in the amount of $540,000. This was fully reserved at the time of the sale as the notes collectability was not assured. The note receivable is fully reserved at June 30, 2012.
6. Earnings Per Share and Potential Dilution
Basic earnings per share are computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The dilutive effect of common shares potentially outstanding is included in diluted earnings per share. The computations for basic and diluted earnings per share for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, are as follows:
During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012, weighted average shares of 5,596,455 and 5,330,568 respectively, related to stock options were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because the option exercise prices exceeded the market price of ZixCorps common stock on that date, and the options were therefore anti-dilutive. During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011, weighted average shares of 4,479,858 and 4,096,786 respectively, related to anti-dilutive stock options were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share. During each of those periods, 145,853 of shares related to anti-dilutive warrants were excluded from that calculation.
7. Commitments and contingencies
A summary of our fixed contractual obligations and commitments at June 30, 2012, is as follows:
We have not entered into any material, non-cancelable purchase commitments at June 30, 2012.
Claims and Proceedings
We are subject to legal proceedings, claims, and litigation against our business. While the outcome of these matters is currently not determinable and the costs and expenses of prosecuting and defending these matters may be significant, we currently do not expect the ultimate costs to resolve these matters will have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.
8. Fair Value Measurements
FASB guidance regarding fair value measurement establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
For certain of the Companys financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, and accounts payable, the fair values approximate carrying values due to the short-term maturities of these instruments. The carrying values of other current assets and accrued expenses are also not recorded at fair value, but approximate fair values primarily due to their short-term nature.
9. Common Stock Repurchase Program
On November 9, 2011, the Company announced that its board of directors approved a share repurchase program authorizing the company to purchase up to $15,000,000 of its shares of common stock from time to time in the open market. The Company completed the share repurchase program during the three months ended June 30, 2012, by repurchasing 1,395,658 shares valued at approximately $4,002,000. The Company repurchased 1,685,308 shares at an aggregate cost of $4,998,000 under the program during the three months ended March 31, 2012, and repurchased 2,184,353 shares at an aggregate cost of $6,000,000 under this program during the three months ended December 31, 2011.
10. Income Taxes
At the end of 2011, the Company recorded a $15,000,000 tax benefit by reducing the valuation allowance related to its deferred tax assets. This reduction was determined through an assessment of future deferred tax asset utilization following accounting guidance which relies largely on historical earnings. Using the same methodology, and updating the future taxable earnings estimates based on first six months 2012 actual earnings, the Company believes its future taxable earnings estimate to be established at the end of 2012 will exceed the estimate used at the end of 2011. For this reason, the Company offset its first and second quarter 2012 deferred tax provision by reducing its valuation allowance by an equal amount; thereby eliminating from its deferred tax provision federal taxes in excess of the estimated Alternative Minimum Tax from the Companys first and second quarter 2012 financial statements. The Company expects to follow this same methodology in the third quarter of 2012 and will reevaluate the need for its valuation allowance at December 31, 2012, following the same assessment that was performed at December 31, 2011. A substantial portion of the state deferred tax valuation allowance was reduced, and a tax benefit recognized, in the assessment performed at December 31, 2011. As a result, state deferred taxes were provided for in the six month period ended June 30, 2012.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires the Companys management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the Companys condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions. Critical accounting policies and estimates are defined as those that are both most important to the portrayal of the Companys financial condition and results and require managements most subjective judgments.
We describe our significant accounting policies in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. We discuss our Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates in Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
Results of Operations
Second Quarter 2012 Summary of Operations
Email Encryption is a subscription-based service. The following table sets forth a period-over-period comparison of the Companys revenues:
The increase in Email Encryption revenue was due to the growth inherent in a successful subscription model with steady additions to the subscriber base coupled with a high rate of existing customer renewals.
Revenue Indicators Backlog and Orders
Backlog Our end-user order backlog is comprised of contractually bound agreements that we expect to amortize into revenue as the services are performed. The timing of revenue is affected by both the length of time required to deploy a service and the length of the service contract.
As of June 30, 2012, total backlog was $55,549,000 and we expect approximately 58% of the total backlog to be recognized as revenue during the next twelve months. The backlog as of June 30, 2012, was comprised of the following elements: $18,602,000 of deferred revenue that has been billed and paid, $6,331,000 billed but unpaid, and approximately $30,616,000 of unbilled contracts.
Orders Total orders were $13,592,000 and $12,517,000 for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Total orders include contract renewals, NFYOs, and in the case of new multi-year contracts, the years beyond the first year of service. NFYOs were $2,487,000 and $2,039,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
Cost of Revenues
The following table sets forth a period-over-period comparison of the cost of revenues:
Cost of revenues is comprised of costs related to operating and maintaining the ZixData Center, a field deployment team, customer service and support and the amortization of Company-owned, customer-based computer appliances. A significant portion of the total cost of revenues relates to the ZixData Center, which currently has excess capacity. The three percent increase in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter last year as well as the three percent increase for the year to date comparative periods, resulted primarily from increases in average wages and benefits for existing staff plus minor increases in software maintenance and software license expenses. These increases were partially offset by a second quarter non-recurring reduction in value added tax of approximately $86,000 for our co-location site in the United Kingdom.
Research and Development Expenses
The following table sets forth a period-over-period comparison of our research and development expenses:
Research and development expenses consist primarily of salary, benefits, and stock-based compensation for our development staff, and other direct and indirect costs associated with enhancing our existing products and services and developing new products and services. The 13 percent increase in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same quarter last year resulted primarily from additional research and development investments including wages and benefits of $113,000 due to increases in average R&D headcount, contracted services of $44,000 and software license expense of $16,000. Similarly, the 13 percent increase for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to the same period last year resulted primarily from additional research and development investment including wages and benefits of $209,000 due to an increase in average R&D headcount, and increases of $107,000 in contracted services and software license expenses and other expenses totaling approximately $21,000.
We will further increase our R&D spending in the third and fourth quarters of 2012 to address two new product opportunities in email data loss prevention (DLP) and mobile device management. Our plan is to begin delivering our new DLP product in early 2013 and our new mobile device management product in the middle of 2013.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
The following table sets forth a period-over-period comparison of our selling, general and administrative expenses:
Selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of salary, stock-based compensation and benefit costs for marketing, sales, executive and administrative personnel as well as costs associated with advertising, promotions, professional services and general corporate activities. The increase of $574,000 in the second quarter of 2012 compared to 2011 resulted primarily from; (i) higher sales commissions and incentive plan bonus accruals of $125,000, (ii) an increase in professional fees, primarily outside legal fees of $215,000, (iii) an increase in stock based compensation expense of $129,000, (iv) salary and benefit increases of $69,000 and other miscellaneous increases totaling $36,000. For the six month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period last year, SG&A expenses increased $1.1 million. This increase resulted primarily from; (i) higher sales commissions and incentive bonus accruals of approximately $363,000, (ii) an increase in wages and benefits of approximately $121,000 resulting from an increase in average headcount, (iii) an increase in stock-based compensation expense of approximately $196,000, and (iv) an increase in professional fees, primarily outside legal counsel of $375,000.
We incurred interest expense of $1,000 for the three and six months ended June 31, 2012. Interest expense was $3,000 and $7,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, and consisted of imputed interest related to a license subscription promissory note payable.
Investment and Other Income
Investment and other income was $6,000 and $11,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Investment and other income was $22,000 and $68,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. Other income consists of interest and other income items earned in the normal course of business.
Provision for Income Taxes
The provision for income taxes was $58,000 and $(11,000) for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $276,000 and $13,000 for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The operating losses incurred by the Companys U.S. operations in past years and the resulting net operating losses for U.S. Federal tax purposes are
subject to a $55,709,000 reserve because of the uncertainty of future taxable income levels sufficient to utilize the net operating losses. Our June 30, 2012, provision of $276,000 includes $102,000 in state taxes currently payable based on gross revenues, $54,000 related to deferred state taxes, $75,000 related to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax, and $45,000 in taxes related to our Canadian operations. Our June 30, 2011 provision of $13,000 consisted of a benefit from refundable tax credits on our U.S. operations totaling $48,000, and taxes related to our Canadian operations totaling $35,000; and $26,000 in state taxes based on gross revenues.
There were no penalty-related charges to selling, general and administrative expenses accrued or recognized for the same comparative periods. Additionally, we have not taken a tax position that would have a material effect on the financial statements or the effective tax rate for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012. We are currently subject to a three-year statute of limitations by major tax jurisdictions.
At June 30, 2012, the Company partially reserved its U.S. net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of future taxable income sufficient to utilize net loss carryforwards prior to their expiration. The Company did not reserve a portion, $50,303,000, of its U.S. net deferred tax assets. The majority of this unreserved portion related to $41,175,000 in U.S. net operating losses (NOLs) because we believe the Company will generate sufficient taxable income in future years to utilize these NOLs prior to their expiration. The remaining balance consists of $5,898,000 relating to temporary differences between GAAP and tax-related expense, $2,287,000 relating to U.S. state income tax credits and net operating loss carryovers, $934,000 related to Alternative Minimum Tax credits, and $9,000 of our Canadian deferred tax asset relating to temporary differences between GAAP and tax-related expense.
At the end of 2011, the Company recorded a $15,000,000 tax benefit by reducing the valuation allowance related to its deferred tax assets. This reduction was determined through an assessment of future deferred tax asset utilization following accounting guidance which relies largely on historical earnings. Using the same methodology, and updating the future taxable earnings estimates based on first and second quarter 2012 actual earnings, the Company believes its future taxable earnings estimate to be established at the end of 2012 will exceed the estimate used at the end of 2011. For this reason, the Company offset its first and second quarter 2012 federal deferred tax provision by reducing its valuation allowance by an equal amount, thereby eliminating from its deferred tax provision federal taxes in excess of the estimated Alternative Minimum Tax from the Companys first and second quarter 2012 financial statements. The Company expects to follow this same methodology in the third quarter of 2012 and will reevaluate the need for its valuation allowance at December 31, 2012 following the same assessment methodology that was performed at December 31, 2011. Adjusting our valuation allowance could have a significant impact on operating results in the period that it becomes more likely than not that an additional portion of our deferred tax assets will or will not be realized.
We have determined that utilization of existing net operating losses against future taxable income is not subject to limitation by Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. Future ownership changes, however, may limit the companys ability to fully utilize its existing net operating loss carryforwards against future taxable income.
As indicated earlier, the operating losses incurred by our U.S. operations and the resulting net operating losses for U.S. Federal tax purposes are subject to a partial reserve. Significant judgment is required in determining any reserve recorded against the deferred tax asset. In assessing the need for a reserve, we consider all available evidence, including past operating results, estimates of future taxable income, and the feasibility of tax planning strategies.
The net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, of $2,643,000 is a slight improvement of $26,000 compared to the net income of $2,617,000 for the same period last year. Our increased revenue and resulting higher gross margin was offset by increased R&D and SG&A spending, and a higher tax expense, as discussed above.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Based on our performance over the last four quarters and current expectations, we believe our cash, cash equivalents, commercial paper and cash generated from operations, will satisfy our working capital needs, capital expenditures, investment requirements, contractual obligations, commitments, future customer financings, and other liquidity requirements associated with our operations through at least the next twelve months. We plan for and measure our liquidity and capital resources through an annual budgeting process. At June 30, 2012, our cash, cash equivalents, and commercial paper totaled $18,787,000 and we held no debt. Our revenue growth is expected at approximately 10% to 15% for the full year 2012 compared to 2011.
Cash, cash equivalents and commercial paper at June 30, 2012, were $18,787,000, a decrease of $1,893,000 from the December 31, 2011, balance. This decrease was primarily driven by the repurchase of approximately $9,000,000 of our common stock under a repurchase program approved by our Board of Directors in November 2011. We completed the share repurchase program during May 2012. This decrease in cash was partially offset by cash generated from the exercise of stock options, cash collections from customers, and relatively flat accounts payable and accrued expenses.
We believe a significant portion of all other spending is discretionary and flexible and that we have the ability to adjust overall cash spending to react, as needed, to any shortfalls in projected cash.
Sources and Uses of Cash Summary
Our primary source of liquidity from our operations is the collection of revenue in advance from our customers and accounts receivable from our customers, net of the timing of payments to our vendors and service providers.
Our investing activities in the first half of 2012 consisted of computer and networking equipment purchases. In the first half of 2011, we utilized $2,290,000 to purchase commercial paper and $755,000 to purchase computer and networking equipment
Cash used in financing activities in the first half of 2012 included the $9,000,000 repurchase of common stock described above. We repurchased $14,912,000 of common stock in the first half of 2011 and funded a $68,000 promissory note associated with computer operating system licenses in the first half of 2011. These usages were partially offset by $252,000 received from the exercise of stock options in the first half of 2012 and $2,334,000 received from the exercise of stock options and warrants in the first half of 2011.
Options of ZixCorp Common Stock
We have significant options outstanding that are currently vested. There is no assurance that any of these options will be exercised; therefore, the extent of future cash from additional option exercises is not certain. The following table summarizes the options that were outstanding as of June 30, 2012. The vested shares are a subset of the outstanding shares. The value of the shares is the number of shares multiplied by the exercise price for each share.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
Contractual Obligations, Contingent Liabilities and Commitments
A summary of our fixed contractual obligations and commitments at June 30, 2012, is as follows:
We did not enter into any other material, non cancelable purchase commitments during the three month period ended June 30, 2012.
We have severance agreements with certain employees which would require the Company to pay approximately $1,639,000 if all such employees separated from employment with our Company in certain circumstances, including a Change of Control or termination without Cause, as defined in the severance agreements.
We have no material changes to the disclosure on this matter made in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
The Company, under the supervision and with the participation of its management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Companys disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e)) under the Exchange Act as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Companys disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2012.
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
During the six months ended June 30, 2012, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect internal control over financial reporting.
See Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in this Form 10-Q.
See Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, of the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. There have been no material changes in our risk factors from those disclosed in such Annual Report on Form 10-K. The risk factors in our Form 10-K should be read in conjunction with the considerations set forth above in Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and in Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
