1. Summary of Accounting Policies

 

Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, and the condensed consolidated statements of operations and cash flows for the periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2012, include the accounts of Creative Vistas, Inc. (“CVAS”), Creative Vistas Acquisition Corp. (“AC Acquisition”), AC Technical Systems Ltd. (“AC Technical”), Iview Holding Corp. (“Iview Holding”), Iview Digital Video Solutions Inc. (“Iview DSI”), 2221559 Ontario Inc. and 2300657 Ontario Inc. (collectively, the “Company”, or “we”, “us”, “our”). In addition, the results of operations of Cancable Holding Corp. and its subsidiaries (“Cancable Holding”) were presented as discontinued operations in our June 30, 2011condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive (loss). All material inter-company accounts, transactions and profits have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) that are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for and as of the periods shown. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles. However, certain information or footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The results of operations for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for 2012 or for any future period. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in the June 30, 2011 financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year’s presentation.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

As a result of the sale of Cancable Holding on September 16, 2011, our condensed consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 presents income from Cancable Holdings as discontinued operations. The Company has not had continuing operational involvement in Cancable Holding since the sale. During the six months ended June 30, 2011 the Company received approximately $374,900 from Cancable for fees that are not considered to be from operations and are included in discontinued operations.

 

The following table details Cancable Holding’s revenues and income from operations which have been reported as discontinued operations:

 

   January 1 to 
   June 30 
   2011 
Service revenue  $14,508,049 
      
Cost of sales   11,792,299

Liquidity and going concern

 

Our condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applicable to a going concern, which contemplate the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have an accumulated deficit of $22,272,822, a stockholders’ deficit of $1,671,245 and a working capital deficit of $701,744 at June 30, 2012, including current maturities of term loans due to Laurus of $1,548,207 (the “Iview Note”) which the Company does not currently have the ability to pay.

 

Assuming that Laurus does not demand repayment of the Iview Note (see Note 5), management believes that its existing capital will be sufficient to sustain its operations. Management plans to seek additional capital in the future to fund operations, growth and expansion through additional equity, debt financing or credit facilities. The Company has had early stage discussions with investors about potential investment in the Company at a future date. No assurance can be made that such financing would be available and, if available, it may take either the form of debt or equity. In either case, the financing could have a negative impact on our financial condition and our shareholders. The Company has increased its rates for services provided by AC Technical to improve gross margins. This is in line with our competitors. The Company also expects to see the benefits of its research and development efforts within the next 12 months as it starts to introduce its own line of customized products to the industry. These products and technologies are expected to improve gross margins. The Company believes that it will be eligible for research and development tax credits at year end for its research and development efforts during the year, providing an additional source of cash flow for the Company. Finally, the Company is also negotiating longer credit terms with its suppliers from 45 days to 60 to 75 days. For all the reasons mentioned above, we believe that we have adequate capital and short term borrowing capability and that we will be able to sustain our operations and continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time, although there can be no assurance of this. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists principally of parts, materials and supplies and is stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is generally determined on the first in, first out basis. The inventory is net of estimated obsolescence ($150,000 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011), based upon assumptions about future demand and market conditions.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) is computed in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share”, using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS is computed using the weighted average number of common and dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. Dilutive potential common shares, determined using the treasury stock method, consist of common stock issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants. During periods when losses are incurred, potentially dilutive common shares are not considered in the computation as their effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

2. Bank Indebtedness and Letter of Credit

 

The Company has a credit facility with a Canadian chartered bank that bears interest at the bank’s domestic prime rate plus 1.5% for Canadian dollar amounts. Interest is payable monthly. The facility is secured by a first security interest in accounts receivable, inventory, certain other assets and keyman life insurance. At June 30, 2012, the interest rate was 4.0%, the borrowing outstanding under the facility was $385,940 and the average borrowing outstanding during the six months then ended was $192,970. The agreements contain financial covenants pertaining to maintenance of tangible net worth and debt service coverage ratio. In the event of default, the bank could at its discretion cancel the facilities and demand immediate repayment of all outstanding amounts.

 

5
 

 

At June 30, 2012, the Company was contingently liable under an irrevocable letter of credit issued by this bank in the amount of $750,000 which will expire in October 2012. The letter of credit was issued to an insurance company as security for the bonding facility in the amount of $750,000 to AC Technical.

 

3. Term Notes

 

In February 2006, Iview DSI issued to Laurus a secured term note (the “Iview Note”) in the amount of $2,000,000. Per the original terms of this note, the minimum monthly payments on the term note were $8,333 through the original maturity date (February 1, 2011), with the balance of $1,600,000 payable on such date. However, the Iview Note has not been repaid. As a result of the sale of Cancable Holding, the Iview Note is no longer guaranteed and secured by the Company.

 

Interest on the term notes for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $55,609 (2011: $55,293)

 

   June 30, 2012 
Iview Note, with interest at prime plus 2% (minimum of 7%; 7% at June 30, 2012)  $1,548,207 

 

4. Net Financing Expenses

 

   Six months ended June 30, 
   2012   2011 
Interest on Iview Note   55,609    55,293 
Interest on term note assigned to Cancable Holding   -    256,757 
Interest on deferred principal repayment of term note   -    13,507 
Related parties   28,048    27,223 
   $83,657   $352,780 

 

5. Notes Payable to Related Parties

 

Notes payable to related parties consists of two notes payable for $750,000, each bearing interest at 3% per annum and having no fixed terms of repayment. However, pursuant to the Laurus Financing, these notes have been subordinated to the Company’s obligations to Laurus and they are classified as non-current. The notes are due to Malar Trust Inc. (the Company’s chairman is the shareholder of Malar Trust Inc.).

 

Interest expense recognized for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was $28,048 (2011 - $27,223).

 

6. Stockholders’ Deficiency

 

Options

 

The Company’s Stock Option Plan is intended to provide incentives for key employees, directors, consultants and other individuals providing services to the Company by encouraging their ownership of the common stock of the Company and to aid the Company in retaining such key employees, directors, consultants and other individuals upon whose efforts the Company’s success and future growth depends and in attracting other such employees, directors, consultants and individuals.

 

The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model, using the following assumptions. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock, and other factors. The Company uses historical data to estimate employee termination within the valuation model. The Company has assumed that the life of the options will be equal to one-half of the combined vesting period and contractual life. The risk-free rates used to value the options are based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The expected dividend yield is 0%.

 

6
 

 

At June 30, 2012, options to purchase 260,000 shares of common stock were outstanding. These options vest ratably in annual installments, over the four year period from the date of grant. As of June 30, 2012, there was $15,216 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested share-based compensation arrangements granted under the Plan. That cost is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted average period of 2.36 years. The cost recognized for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,500 (2011: $6,169) which was recorded as general and administrative expenses.

 

A summary of option activity under the Plan during the six months ended June 30, 2012 is presented below:

 

   Options   Weighted-Average
Exercise
Price
   Weighted-Average
Remaining
Contractual
Term
   Intrinsic
Value
 
Outstanding at December 31, 2011   360,000   $0.72    1.93    - 
Granted   -    -    -    - 
Exercised   -    -    -    - 
Forfeited or expired   (100,000)  $0.90    -    - 
Outstanding at June 30, 2012   260,000   $0.65    2.11    - 
                     
Exercisable at June 30, 2012   167,500   $0.66    2.08    - 

 

As of June 30, 2012, the aggregate intrinsic value of all stock options outstanding and expected to vest was $0 and the aggregate intrinsic value of currently exercisable stock options was $0.  The intrinsic value of each option is the difference between the fair market value of the common stock and the exercise price of such option to the extent it is “in-the-money”.  Aggregate intrinsic value represents the value that would have been received by the holders of in-the-money options had they exercised their options on the last trading day of the year and sold the underlying shares at the closing stock price on such day.  The intrinsic value calculation is based on the $0.01 closing stock price of the common stock on June 30, 2012. There were no in-the-money options outstanding and exercisable as of June 30, 2012.

 

Because there were no options exercised during the six months ended June 30, 2012, there was no intrinsic value of options exercised.

 

The total fair value of options granted during the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $0, as no options were granted in 2012.   

 

The following table summarizes information about fixed price stock options outstanding at June 30, 2012:

 

Exercise
Price
   Number
Outstanding
   Weighted
Average
Contractual Life
   Weighted
Average
Exercise Price
   Number
Exercisable
   Exercise

$0.63    250,000    2.16   $0.63    160,000   $0.63 
$1.12    10,000    0.98   $1.12    7,500   $1.12 
      260,000              167,500      

 

The number and weighted average grant-date fair value of options non-vested at the beginning of the year, non-vested at the end of June 30, 2012 and granted, vested or canceled during the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was as follows:

 

   Number of Options   Weighted-Average
Grant Date Fair Values
 
Non-vested at January 1, 2012   127,500   $0.17 
Granted   -    - 
Vested   (35,000)  $0.22 
Canceled   -    - 
Non-vested at June 30, 2012   92,500   $0.14

Warrants

 

The Company uses a binomial option pricing model to value warrants issued to non-employees, based on the market price of its common stock at the time the warrants are issued. All outstanding warrants may be exercised by the holder at any time. Total outstanding warrants as of June 30, 2012 were 200,000 at an exercise price of $0.03 per share, issued to a non-employee for consulting service with an expiry date of December 31, 2014.

Results of Operations

 

Comparison of Three Months Ended June 30, 2012
with Three Months Ended June 30, 2011

 

Revenue: Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2012 decreased 37% to $1,364,600 from $2,170,200 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. All revenue generated from AC Technical Systems was in Canadian dollars.  Contract revenue was $1,025,900 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1,832,900 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The year-over-year decrease in revenue was mainly due to the decrease in the number of subcontracts for the provision of services to fewer government and commercial contracts. Service revenue was $338,600 for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared with $337,300 in the corresponding period of 2011.

 

Cost of Sales (excluding depreciation and amortization): Cost of Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $684,700 or 50.2% of revenues compared to $1,082,500 or 49.9% of revenues for same period in 2011. The material cost was $410,200, or 30.1% of the revenue, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $684,300, or 31.5% of revenues, in the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in material costs was primarily the result of the decrease in revenue. Labor and subcontractor costs also decreased to $272,900, or 20.0% of revenues, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $394,500, or 18.2% of revenues, for the same period of fiscal 2011 because of the decrease in revenue. The increase in percentage of the labor and subcontractor cost to revenues was due to the result of certain contracts having more labor requirements.

 

Project expenses: Project expenses decreased to $245,700, or 18.1% of revenues, for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $294,500, or 13.6% of revenues, for the same period in 2011. These costs include mainly the salaries and benefits of indirect staff amounting to $147,400 in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $178,900 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in balance was mainly due to a reduction in headcount. Automobile and travel expenses decreased to $75,200 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $85,500 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in this cost was mainly due to the decrease in repair and maintenance expenses.

 

Selling expenses: Selling expenses were $196,000, or 14.4% of revenues, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $268,500, or 12.4% of revenues, for the same period in 2011. The balance for the three months ended June 30, 2012 is mainly comprised of salaries and commissions to salespersons of $116,900 compared to $208,900 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in commission expenses as a result of decreased revenue. Advertising and promotion and trade show expenses were $25,100 in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $36,900 for the same period of fiscal 2011.

 

General and administrative expenses: General and administrative expenses were $362,900, or 26.6% of revenues, for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $415,300, or 19.1% of revenues, for the same period in 2011. For the three months ended June 30, 2012 these costs were mainly comprised of $80,200 of professional fees related to preparation of the quarterly reports and other corporate matters, compared to $142,800 for the same period in 2011. Total consulting fees and salaries and benefits to administrative staff were $160,900 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $185,900 for the corresponding period of 2011. The decrease in general and administrative cost was mainly due to the decrease in professional fees.

 

Interest and other expenses (income): Interest and other expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2012 were $73,700 or 5.4% of revenues compared to net expenses of $175,100 or 8.0% of revenues for the same period in 2011. The net financing expenses decreased to $43,100 or 3.2% of revenues compared to $174,300 or 8.1% of revenues for the same period in 2011. The interest due with respect to the Company’s credit facilities was $29,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $211,900 for the same period in 2011. The decrease in expense was mainly due to the decrease of term loans in the amount of $7,287,500 after the sale of Cancable in September 2011. Additionally, the foreign currency transaction loss was $30,700 for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared with foreign currency transaction loss of $800 for same period of 2011. The change was related to the foreign currency translation of term notes which resulted because the Canadian dollar was trading lower than the U.S. dollar as at June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period of 2011.

 

Income taxes: We recognized losses for both financial and tax reporting during each of the periods in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. Accordingly, we have fully reserved substantially all our deferred income tax assets, there was no provision and/or benefit for income taxes.

Net Loss: Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was $208,200 compared to a net loss of $76,100 for the same period in 2011.

Results of Operations
Comparison of Six Month Period Ended June 30, 2012
to Period Ended June 30, 2011

 

For purposes of this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations”, we compared the six months ended June 30, 2012 to the corresponding period in 2011.

 

Sales: Sales for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased 36.0% to $2,843,700 from $4,446,500 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in revenue was mainly due to the decrease in contract revenue for the six month period ended 2012 to $2,073,400 compared to $3,723,000 for same period in 2011. The decrease in contract revenue was primarily due to less contracts being received in the first six months compared to the same period in 2011. The service revenue was $770,300 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $723,500 for same period in 2011.

 

Cost of sales (excluding depreciation and amortization): Cost of sales for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,349,600 or 47.5% of revenues compared to $2,342,500 or 52.7% of revenues for same period in 2011. The material cost was $797,300 or 28.0% of revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1,595,900 or 35.9% of revenues in the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in percentage of material costs was primarily a result of some contracts requiring less material. On the other hand, labor and subcontractor cost decreased to $549,000 or 19.3% of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $719,000 or 16.2% of revenues for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in labor and subcontractor cost was mainly due to the decrease in revenue.

 

Project expenses: Project expenses decreased to $466,000 or 16.4% of revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $587,100 or 13.2% of revenue for the same period in 2011. The balance mainly includes the salaries and benefits of indirect staff amounting to $282,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $347,000 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in salaries and benefits was primarily due to a decrease in headcount. Automobile and travel expenses decreased to $142,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $174,700 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease in automobile and travel expenses was due to the decrease in repair and maintenance cost and travel by the staff.

 

Selling expenses: Selling expenses were $400,500 or 14.1% of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $496,300 or 11.2% of revenues for the same period in 2011. The balance for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is mainly comprised of salaries and commissions to salespersons of $166,700 compared to $253,700 for the same period of fiscal 2011. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in commission expenses as a result of decreased revenues. Advertising, promotion and trade show expenses were $59,700 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $58,700 for the same period of fiscal 2011.

 

General and administrative expenses: General and administrative expenses were $775,900 or 27.3% of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $873,000 or 19.6% for the same period in 2011. The balance for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was mainly comprised of $153,000 of professional fees related to preparation of quarterly reports and other corporate matters compared to $294,600 for the same period in 2011. The decrease in professional fees was primarily due to the decrease in legal cost for corporate matters. The sale of Cancable resulted in higher legal and professional fees in 2011. Total salaries and benefits to administrative staff decreased to $292,600 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $317,500 for the corresponding period of 2011. Total expenses for research and development were $57,200 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $261,600 for the corresponding period of 2011. The decrease in expenses was mainly due to the Company receiving a higher government credit for the six months ended June 30, 2012 than the government credit received in 2011.

 

Depreciation: Total depreciation of property plant and equipment was $19,500 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $41,000 for the same period in 2011.

Interest and other expenses (income): Interest and other expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $83,400 or 2.9% of revenues compared to $316,600 or 7.1% of revenues for the same period in 2011. The balance for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was primarily comprised of net financing expenses which decreased to $83,700 or 2.9% of revenues compared to $352,800 or 7.9% of revenues for the same period of 2011. The interest due with respect to the Company’s credit facilities was $55,600 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $312,000 for the same period in 2011. The decrease in expense was mainly due to the decrease of term loans in the amount of $7,287,500 after the sale of Cancable in September 2011. Additionally, the foreign currency transaction gain was $307 for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared with foreign currency transaction gain of $38,300 for same period of 2011. The change was related to the foreign currency translation of term notes which resulted because the Canadian dollar was trading lower than the U.S. dollar as at June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period of 2011.

 

Income taxes: No income taxes were paid and/or owed during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, which was mainly due to the Company’s previous losses carried forward to offset all income generated by the Company. Because of this and because we have fully reserved substantially all our deferred income tax assets, there was no provision and/or benefit for income taxes.

 

Net Loss: Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $251,000 compared to a net loss of $6,300 for the same period in 2011. The net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2011 includes income from discontinued operations of $203,700 and there was no such balance for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since our inception, we have financed our operations through bank debt, loans and equity from our principals, loans from third parties and funds generated by our business. At June 30, 2012, we had $1,055,300 in cash. We believe that cash from operations and our credit facilities with Laurus will continue to be adequate to satisfy our ongoing working capital needs as we do not expect Laurus to demand acceleration of the outstanding loan extended to the Company. We do not currently have the ability to repay the note in the event of a demand by the holder. During fiscal year 2012, our primary objectives in managing liquidity and cash flows will be to ensure financial flexibility to support growth and entry into new markets and improve inventory management and to accelerate the collection of accounts receivable.

 

In addition, we have introduced cost cutting initiatives within the Administration, Project and Selling departments to improve efficiency and also to improve cash flow. We have also increased our rates for services provided by AC Technical to improve gross margins. This is in line with our competitors. Finally, we expect to realize additional benefits from our research and development efforts within the next 12 months as we start to introduce our own line of customized products to the industry. These products and technologies are expected to improve gross margins. We plan to seek additional capital in the future to fund operations, growth and expansion including through additional equity or debt financing or credit facilities. We have had early stage discussions with investors about potential investment in our company at a future date; however, no assurance can be made that such financing would be available, and if available that it would be on terms acceptable to us.

 

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities. Net cash used in operating activities amounted to $253,700 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $20,300 for the corresponding period of 2011. The change was primarily a result of an increase in accounts receivable during the six months ended June 30, 2012.

 

Net Cash Provided By Financing Activities. Net cash provided by financing activities was approximately $392,200 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $122,500 for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The change was primarily because we had net inflows of approximately $392,200 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 under our lines of credit compared with $172,500 for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Moreover, the repayment of term loans was $50,000 during the period ended June 30, 2011 and there was no such repayment of term loans for the period ended June 30, 2012.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, management believes that the impact of recently issued standards, which are not yet effective, will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

DISCUSSION OF CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

 

Critical accounting estimates are those that management deems to be most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations, and that require management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, due to the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. We have identified the following critical accounting estimates: accounts receivable allowances, contract revenues, inventory reserves, stock-based compensation. See our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, for a discussion of our critical accounting estimates.

 

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This quarterly report contains forward-looking statements about our company that are not historical facts but, rather, are statements about future expectations. When used in this document, the words “anticipates,” “believes,” “expects,” “intends,” “should” and similar expressions as they relate to us, or to our management, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, forward-looking statements in this document are based on management’s current views and assumptions and may be influenced by factors that could cause actual results, performance or events to be materially different from those projected. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. Important factors, some of which are beyond our control, could cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include impact of general economic conditions in North America, changes in laws and regulations, fluctuation in interest rates and access to capital markets.

 

Our actual results or performance could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements and, accordingly, we cannot predict whether any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do, what impact they will have on our results of operations and financial condition.
