CORPORATE BACKGROUND

 

The Company’s principal executive office is located at Maple Park, Maple Court, Tankersley, Barnsley, U.K. S75 3DP and its phone number is 011-44-124-431-1794

 

In December 2005, W3 Group, Inc. (“W3”) consummated a reverse acquisition and changed its corporate name to Aftersoft Group, Inc. W3, which was initially incorporated in February 1988 in Colorado, changed its state of incorporation to Delaware in May 2003. On December 21, 2005, an Acquisition Agreement (the “Agreement”) was consummated among W3, a separate Delaware corporation named Aftersoft Group, Inc. (“Oldco”) and Auto Data Network, Inc. (“ADNW”) in which W3 acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Oldco in exchange for issuing 3,250,000 shares of Common Stock of W3, par value $0.0001 per share, to ADNW, which was then the sole shareholder of the Company. At the time of the acquisition, W3 had no business operations. Concurrent with the acquisition, W3 changed its name to Aftersoft Group, Inc. and its corporate officers were replaced. The Board of Directors of the Company appointed three additional directors designated by ADNW to serve until the next annual election of directors. As a result of the acquisition, the former W3 shareholders owned, 160,117 or 4.7% of the 3,410,117 total issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock and ADNW owned 3,250,000 or 95.3% of the Company’s Common Stock. On December 22, 2005, Oldco changed its name to Aftersoft Software, Inc. and is currently inactive. On April 21, 2010 shareholders approved the change of the Company’s name to MAM Software Group, Inc.

MAM is a former subsidiary of ADNW, a publicly traded company, the stock of which is currently traded on the pink sheets under the symbol ADNW.PK. ADNW transferred its software aftermarket services operating businesses to MAM and retained its database technology, Orbit. Orbit is a system for supply and collection of data throughout

the automotive industry.
 

On November 24, 2008, ADNW distributed a dividend of the 7,125,000 shares of MAM common stock that ADNW owned at such time in order to complete the previously announced spin-off of MAM’s businesses. The dividend shares were distributed in the form of a pro rata dividend to the holders of record as of November 17, 2008 (the “Record Date”) of ADNW’s common and convertible preferred stock. Each holder of record of shares of ADNW common and preferred stock as of the close of business on the Record Date was entitled to receive 0.06864782 shares of MAM’s common stock for each share of common stock of ADNW held at such time, and/or for each share of ADNW common stock that such holder would own, assuming the convertible preferred stock owned on the Record Date was converted in full.  Prior to the spin-off, ADNW owned approximately 77% of MAM’s issued and outstanding common stock. Subsequent to and as a result of the spin-off, MAM is no longer a subsidiary of ADNW. The Company currently has the following wholly owned direct operating subsidiaries: MAM Software in the U.K., and ASNA in the U.S.

 

On March 25, 2011, (“the Effective Date”), the Company amended its Certificate of Incorporation to effectuate a one-for-one hundred reverse stock split, followed by a ten-for-one forward stock split. Pursuant to this transaction, every 100 shares of the Company's Common Stock were converted into one share of the Company's Common Stock. Immediately thereafter, a forward stock split was undertaken whereby each share of Common Stock was converted into 10 shares of Common Stock. Stockholders owning fewer than 100 shares of Common Stock whose interests were converted into fewer than 1 share of Common Stock pursuant to the reverse split, were converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the average daily closing price per share of the Common Stock on the OTC Bulletin Board for the five trading days immediately before and including the Effective Date, without interest. Stockholders who held 100 or more shares as of the Effective Date received fractional shares in the reverse split and were not cashed out. Any fractional shares held after the ensuing forward split were rounded up to the nearest whole share. All share numbers and per share amounts reported in this annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 and in the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to give effect to the stock split.

Industry Overview

 

The Company serves the business needs of customers involved in the supply of parts, maintenance and repair of automobiles and light trucks in three key segments of the automotive aftermarket, namely parts, tires and auto service.

 

The industry is presently experiencing a level of consolidation in the lines that are being sold. The previous distinction of having parts and tires provided by two distinct suppliers is coming to an end, as our customers’ businesses need to offer their clients the widest range of products and services under one roof. As a result, what were previously parts-only stores, jobbers and warehouse, are now taking in tire inventory as well in order to satisfy their clients’ demands, and vice-versa. This in turn is causing owners of these businesses to evaluate their business systems to ensure they can compete over the short, medium and long term. An increase in the “do-it-yourself” market due to the “credit crunch” is requiring these systems, but at the same time  a  need to  compete strongly with other  parts stores is cutting margins as businesses attempt to attract new and return business. Longer warranties are still deferring the length of time until newer vehicles are entering the aftermarket, except for running spares and service parts, accident damage, and optional add-ons such as security, entertainment, performance and customization.

 

Continuing market conditions related to the overall downturn in the consumer market is also directly affecting the confidence and ability of businesses to invest in new systems. The industry’s response to this has been to introduce incentive and discount programs, but to date it is uncertain whether this approach will be successful long term.

 

The Company believes that growth in the automotive aftermarket will continue to be driven by the following factors:

 

  · gradual growth in the aggregate number of vehicles in use;

 

  · an increase in the average age of vehicles in operation;

 

  · fewer new vehicles being purchased due to uncertainty in the economy, especially available credit;

 

  · growth in the total number of miles driven per vehicle per year; and

 

  · increased vehicle complexity.

 

Products and Services

 

Meeting the needs of the automotive aftermarket requires a combination of business management systems, information products and online services that combine to deliver benefits for all parties involved in the timely repair of a vehicle. The Company provides systems and services that meet these needs and help its customers to meet their customers’ expectations. These products and services include:

 

  1. Business Management Systems comprised of the Company’s proprietary software applications, implementation and training and third-party hardware and peripherals;

 

  2. Information Products such as an accessible catalog database related to parts, tires, labor estimates, scheduled maintenance, repair information, technical service bulletins, pricing and product features and benefits that are used by the different participants in the automotive aftermarket;

 

5
 

 

  3. Online Services and products that provide online connectivity between manufacturers, warehouse distributors, retailers and automotive service providers. These products enable electronic data interchange throughout the automotive aftermarket supply chain between the different trading partners. They also enable procurement and business services to be projected over the internet to an expanded business audience; and

 

  4. Customer Support, Consulting and Training that provide phone and online support, implementation and training.

Distribution

 

There are two primary vertical distribution channels for aftermarket parts and tire distribution: the traditional wholesale channel and the retail channel.

 

8
 

 

Automotive Aftermarket Distribution Channels

 

  · Traditional Wholesale Channel. The wholesale channel is the predominant distribution channel in the automotive aftermarket. It is characterized by the distribution of parts from the manufacturer to a warehouse distributor, to parts stores and then to automotive service providers. Warehouse distributors sell to automotive service providers through parts stores, which are positioned geographically near the automotive service providers they serve. This distribution method provides for the rapid distribution of parts. The Company has products and services that meet the needs of the warehouse distributors, parts stores and the automotive service providers.

 

  · Retail Channel. The retail channel is comprised of large specialty retailers, small independent parts stores and regional chains that sell to “do-it-yourself” customers. Larger specialty retailers, such as Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Inc., and O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. carry a greater number of parts and accessories at more attractive prices than smaller retail outlets and are gaining market share. The business management systems used in this channel are either custom developed by the large specialty retailers or purchased from business systems providers by small to medium-sized businesses. The Company has products and services that support the retail channel.

 

In addition to these two primary channels, some aftermarket parts and tires end up being distributed to new car dealers. The business management systems used in this channel have unique functionality specific to new car dealerships. The Company sells a small number of products into the auto service provider side of car dealerships. Aftermarket wholesalers of parts and tires provide online purchasing capabilities to some new car dealerships.

 

Product Development

 

The Company’s goal is to add value to its customers’ businesses through products and services designed to create optimal efficiency. To accomplish this goal, the Company’s product development strategy consists of the following three key components:

 

  · Integrating all of the Company’s products so that its software solutions work together seamlessly, thereby eliminating the need to switch between applications;

 

  · Enhancing the Company’s current products and services to support its changing customers’ needs; and

 

  · Providing a migration path to the Company’s business management systems, reducing a fear that many customers have that changing systems will disrupt business.

 

Sales and Marketing

 

The Company’s sales and marketing strategy is to acquire customers and retain them by cross-selling and up-selling a range of commercially compelling business management systems, information products and online services.

 

Within the parts, tire and auto service provider segments, each division sells and markets through a combination of field sales, inside sales, and independent representatives. The Company seeks to partner with large customers or buying groups and leverage their relationships with their customers or members. Incentive pay is a significant portion of the total compensation package for all sales representatives and sales managers. Outside sales representatives focus primarily on identifying and selling to new customers complemented by an inside sales focus on selling upgrades and new software applications to its installed customer base.

 

The Company’s marketing approach aims to leverage its reputation for customer satisfaction and for delivering systems, information and services that improve a customer’s commercial results. The goal of these initiatives is to maximize customer retention and recurring revenues, to enhance the productivity of the field sales team, and to create the cross-selling and up-selling opportunities for its systems, information products and online services.

Research and Development

 

The Company spent approximately $3.3 million in fiscal 2012 on research and development, with approximately $0.9 million spent by ASNA, $0.2 million by MAM Software, Inc., and $2.2 million by MAM Software Ltd. The Company spent approximately $3.2 million in fiscal 2011 on research and development, with approximately $0.9 million spent by ASNA, $0.3 million by MAM Software, Inc., and $2.0 million by MAM Software Ltd.

 

Patent and Trademark

 

None.

 

Customers

 

During the year ended June 30, 2012 no one customer accounted for 10% of the Company’s total revenues.  During the year ended June 30, 2011 no one customer accounted for 10% of the Company’s total revenues. The Company’s top ten customers collectively accounted for 17% of total revenues during fiscal 2012 and 18% of total revenues during 2011. Some of ASNA’s top customers in North America include Autopart International, AutoZone, Monro Muffler Brake, and U.S. AutoForce. In the U.K. and Irish markets, MAM Software’s top customers include Unipart Automotive, Dingbro Ltd, Allparts Automotive and General Traffic Service.

 

Competition

 

In the U.S. and Canada, MAM Software Inc. competes primarily with Epicor Inc. (formerly Activant, Inc.) and several smaller software companies, including Autologue, DST and DMS. ASNA competes primarily with Maddenco, ASA and RO Writer who all provide similar products and services to the U.S. automotive aftermarket. Additionally, an ongoing competitive threat to the Company is custom developed in-house systems, information products and online services. For example, AutoZone, Inc. and Genuine Parts Company’s NAPA Parts Group both developed their own business management systems and electronic automotive parts catalogs for their stores and members, although the Company currently has a partnership agreement with each of these companies to supply their information products through the Company’s solutions.

 

In the U.S. and Canada, the Company expects to compete successfully against its competitors using two separate and complimentary strategies. First, the Company will continue to focus on selling and promoting the Company’s complete supply chain solutions that provide businesses with easy integration of the Company’s business management information systems into their existing supply chain structures. Second, the Company will continue its strategy of working with those businesses that already manage their own supply chains and information products (catalogs), such as Autozone, helping to improve and compliment their systems with the Company’s products.

 

ASNA, in the U.S. and Canada, competes with multiple products across different market segments, so its competitors vary by segment.

 

Within the warehouse distribution segment, the Company will continue to support its legacy system, Direct Step, a product which the Company developed many years ago which enables large warehouses with millions of parts to locate, manage, pack and deliver the parts with ease and efficiency. DirectStep is not a Microsoft Windows-based technology. The Company’s existing and prospective customers are moving towards modern solutions which integrate easily with Internet-based transactions and interactions, and the Company believes that its Autopart product provides that solution. The Company has been selling Autopart successfully in the U.K. and Ireland since 2000, and feels that the success this product in the U.K. and the successful installation of this product within the U.S. will enable the Company to promote and benefit quickly from this product.

 

10
 

 

The tire segment is comprised of three distinct elements: retail, wholesale and commercial. Within the tire segment and the auto service segment, the Company focuses on client and market requirements, which the Company believes will enable it to offer its clients the best solution, regardless of the size of a client’s business. By continually integrating and extending the functionality of its solutions across the entire supply chain, the Company believes that it will be able to offer existing and potential clients products that suit their present and future needs. Management believes that its products will present existing and potential clients the opportunity to move away from their older existing systems, which may restrict their market opportunities, and will permit integration into additional sales channels and reduce the costly maintenance of older systems.

 

The auto parts segment within the auto service space has many competitors who have developed applications for single location auto service shops. Many of these have been developed by parts distributors like NAPA and AutoZone. While these applications do well in a small single location store, they are not widely distributed in the multi-store location segment of the auto parts business. The Company’s goal is not to pursue single store locations. Rather, it will focus on multi-store locations for which its product VAST is highly suited. The Company believes that this multi-store ability offers strong opportunities to beat the competition in this area and quickly increase the Company’s customer base.

 

The last area that the Company plans to compete in is the e-commerce space, providing new tools and solutions for this expanding Internet marketplace.  The goal of the Company’s OpenWebs™ product is to connect both parts and tire partners together in a real-time environment so they can perform electronic ordering, gauge inventory levels as well as disseminate information. Within the tire segment, the Company feels that it has a competitive advantage. The Company’s observation has led it to believe that most tire distributors either do not have a business-to-business solution or have developed solutions from independent sources. While the parts segment of this market is largely tied to Epicor, Inc. (formerly Activant, Inc.) at this time, the Company believes that customers are looking for solutions that simply integrate their supply chain, completely and without further restrictions. The Company’s OpenWebs™ solution will allow its customers to achieve these goals.

 

In the U.K., MAM Software continues to compete primarily with Epicor, Inc., (formerly Activant, Inc.) in the component sector of automotive aftermarket. In the tyre sector, MAM Software competes primarily with CAM Systems, Tyreman and Team Systems. In the vertical markets now being targeted by MAM Software in the UK, the company competes with Kerridge, Chatsworth, EDP, Blue Rock, OGL and Ramtac, The Company feels that it provides a range of solutions that combine proven concepts with cutting-edge technology that are functional, effective and reliable. The Company feels that its focus towards continuing to provide solutions that enable business to find new efficiencies and increase existing efficiencies, as the Company develops its own products, will provide it an advantage over the competition. These efforts, together with strong post-sales support and ongoing in depth product and market support, will assist the Company in generating and maintaining its position within the market.

 

Several large enterprise resource planning and software companies, including Microsoft Corporation, Oracle Corporation and SAP AG, continue to supply Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) and Supply Chain Management (“SCM”) products to medium sized original equipment manufacturers and suppliers within the automotive market, but to date have not focused strongly on the aftermarket. The solutions that they have developed are mainly focused on the efficient management of the supply chain and to date do not appear to be looking to supply systems and solutions into the jobber and service segments of the aftermarket. However there can be no assurance that those companies will not develop or acquire a competitive product or service in the future.

 

Employees

 

The Company has 181 full-time employees: 2 at MAM Software Group, Inc., 31 at ASNA, 17 at MAM Software, Inc., and 131 at MAM Software Ltd. MAM Software Group, Inc.’s., 2 employees include 1 senior executive and 1 accountant. ASNA has 31 employees in the U.S. comprised of 1 in management, 4 in sales and marketing, 8 in research and development, 16 in professional services and support and 2 in general and administration. MAM Software, Inc. has 17 employees, 1 in senior management, 5 in sales and marketing, and 11 in research and development. MAM Software has 131 employees in the U.K. comprised of 5 in management, 17 in sales and marketing, 61 in research and development, 41 in professional services and support and 7 in general and administration.

All of the Company’s employees have executed customary confidentiality and restrictive covenant agreements. The Company believes it has a good relationship with its employees and is currently unaware of any key management or other personnel looking to either retire or leave the employment of the Company. During 2008, the Company adopted a 2007 Long Term Stock Incentive Plan, which was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors and stockholders.

 

Item 1A.  Risk Factors

 

Our business, financial condition and operating results are subject to a number of risk factors, both those that are known to U.S. and identified below and others that may arise from time to time. These risk factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from those suggested by forward-looking statements in this report and elsewhere, and may adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results. If any of those risk factors should occur, moreover, the trading price of our securities could decline, and investors in our securities could lose all or part of their investment in our securities. These risk factors should be carefully considered in evaluating our prospects.

 

WE MAY FAIL TO ADDRESS RISKS WE FACE AS A DEVELOPING BUSINESS WHICH COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR BUSINESS PLAN.

 

We are prone to all of the risks inherent in the establishment of any new business venture. You should consider the likelihood of our future success to be highly speculative in light of our limited operating history, as well as the limited resources, problems, expenses, risks and complications frequently encountered by entities at our current stage of development.

 

To address these risks, we must, among other things,

 

  · implement and successfully execute our business and marketing strategy;

 

  · continue to develop new products and upgrade our existing products;

 

  · respond to industry and competitive developments;

 

  · attract, retain, and motivate qualified personnel; and

 

  · obtain equity and debt financing on satisfactory terms and in timely fashion in amounts adequate to implement our business plan and meet our obligations.

 

We may not be successful in addressing these risks. If we are unable to do so, our business prospects, financial condition and results of operations would be materially adversely affected.

 

GLOBAL MARKET DISRUPTIONS MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR BUSINESS AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

Recent disruptions in the current global credit and financial markets have included diminished liquidity and credit availability, a decline in economic growth and uncertainty about economic stability. There can be no assurance that there will not be further deterioration in credit and financial markets and confidence in economic conditions. These economic uncertainties affect businesses such as ours in a number of ways, making it difficult to accurately forecast and plan our future business activities. We believe that the recent global economic slowdown and the resulting slow recovery have caused certain customers to reduce or delay capital spending plans, which, if prolonged, could impact our growth expectations as potential and existing customers continue to delay decisions to purchase or upgrade their systems. We are unable to predict the likely duration and severity of the current disruptions in the credit and financial markets and adverse global economic conditions and its potential impact on our business. If the current uncertain economic conditions continue or further deteriorate, our business and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

 

12
 

 

WE MAY FAIL TO SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOP, MARKET AND SELL OUR PRODUCTS.

 

To achieve profitable operations, we, along with our subsidiaries, must continue successfully to improve market and sell existing products and develop, market and sell new products. Our product development efforts may not be successful. The development of new software products is highly uncertain and subject to a number of significant risks. The development cycle-from inception to installing the software for customers - can be lengthy and uncertain. The ability to market the product is unpredictable and may cause delays. Potential products may appear promising at early stages of development, and yet may not reach the market for a number of reasons.

 

ADDITIONAL ISSUANCES OF SECURITIES WILL DILUTE YOUR STOCK OWNERSHIP AND COULD AFFECT OUR STOCK PRICE.

 

As of September 7, 2012, there were 13,980,115 shares of our Common Stock issued and outstanding. Our Articles of Incorporation authorize the issuance of an aggregate of 18,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 2,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, on such terms and at such prices as our Board of Directors may determine. These shares are intended to provide U.S. with the necessary flexibility to undertake and complete plans to raise funds if and when needed. In addition, we may pursue acquisitions that could include issuing equity, although we have no current arrangements to do so. Any such issuances of securities would have a dilutive effect on current ownership of MAM stock. The market price of our Common Stock could fall in response to the sale or issuance of a large number of shares, or the perception that sales of a large number of shares could occur.

 

WE MAY ENCOUNTER SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RISKS IF WE GROW OUR BUSINESS THROUGH ACQUISITIONS.

 

As part of our growth strategy, we may seek to acquire or invest in complementary or competitive businesses, products or technologies. The process of integrating acquired assets into our operations may result in unforeseen operating difficulties and expenditures and may absorb significant management attention that would otherwise be available for the ongoing development of our business. We may allocate a significant portion of our available working capital to finance all or a portion of the purchase price relating to possible acquisitions although we have no immediate plans to do so. Any future acquisition or investment opportunity may require U.S. to obtain additional financing to complete the transaction. The anticipated benefits of any acquisitions may not be realized. In addition, future acquisitions by U.S. could result in potentially dilutive issuances of equity securities, the incurrence of debt and contingent liabilities and amortization expenses related to goodwill and other intangible assets, any of which could materially adversely affect our operating results and financial position. Acquisitions also involve other risks, including entering markets in which we have no or limited prior experience.

 

AN INCREASE IN COMPETITION FROM OTHER SOFTWARE MANUFACTURERS COULD HAVE A MATERIAL ADVERSE EFFECT ON OUR ABILITY TO GENERATE REVENUE AND CASH FLOW.

 

Competition in our industry is intense. Potential competitors in the U.S. and Europe are numerous. Most competitors have substantially greater capital resources, marketing experience, research and development staffs and facilities than we have. Our competitors may be able to develop products before U.S. or develop more effective products or market them more effectively which would limit our ability to generate revenue and cash flow.

  

THE PRICES WE CHARGE FOR OUR PRODUCTS MAY DECREASE AS A RESULT OF COMPETITION AND OUR REVENUES COULD DECREASE AS A RESULT.

 

We face potential competition from very large software companies, including Microsoft Corporation, Oracle Corporation and SAP AG which supply ERP and SCM products to our target market of small to medium-sized businesses servicing the automotive aftermarket. To date we have directly competed with one of these larger software and service companies. There can be no assurance that these companies will not develop or acquire a competitive product or service in the future. Our business would be dramatically affected by price pressure if these larger software companies attempted to gain market share through the use of highly discounted sales and extensive marketing campaigns.

 

13
 

 

IF WE FAIL TO KEEP UP WITH RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE, OUR TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS COULD BECOME LESS COMPETITIVE OR OBSOLETE.

 

The software industry is characterized by rapid and significant technological change. We expect that the software needs associated with the automotive technology will continue to develop rapidly, and our future success will depend on our ability to develop and maintain a competitive position through technological development.

 

WE DEPEND ON PATENT AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS TO DEVELOP AND PROTECT OUR TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCTS, WHICH RIGHTS MAY NOT OFFER US SUFFICIENT PROTECTION.

 

The software industry places considerable importance on obtaining patent and trade secret protection for new technologies, products and processes. Our success will depend on our ability to obtain and enforce protection for products that we develop under U.S. and foreign patent laws and other intellectual property laws, preserve the confidentiality of our trade secrets and operate without infringing the proprietary rights of third parties. Currently, only one of our products is patented.

 

We also rely upon trade secret protection for our confidential and proprietary information. Others may independently develop substantially equivalent proprietary information and techniques or gain access to our trade secrets or disclose our technology. We may not be able to meaningfully protect our trade secrets which could limit our ability to exclusively produce products.

 

We require our employees, consultants, and parties to collaborative agreements to execute confidentiality agreements upon the commencement of employment or consulting relationships or collaboration with U.S.  These agreements may not provide meaningful protection of our trade secrets or adequate remedies in the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of confidential and proprietary information.

 

IF WE BECOME SUBJECT TO ADVERSE CLAIMS ALLEGING INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY PROPRIETARY RIGHTS, WE MAY INCUR UNANTICIPATED COSTS AND OUR COMPETITIVE POSITION MAY SUFFER.

 

We are subject to the risk that we are infringing on the proprietary rights of third parties. Although we are not aware of any infringement by our technology on the proprietary rights of others and are not currently subject to any legal proceedings involving claimed infringements, we cannot assure you that we will not be subject to such third-party claims, litigation or indemnity demands and that these claims will not be successful. If a claim or indemnity demand were to be brought against U.S., it could result in costly litigation or product shipment delays or force U.S. to stop selling such product or providing such services or to enter into royalty or license agreements.

 

OUR SOFTWARE AND INFORMATION SERVICES COULD CONTAIN DESIGN DEFECTS OR ERRORS WHICH COULD AFFECT OUR REPUTATION, RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT COSTS TO US AND IMPAIR OUR ABILITY TO SELL OUR PRODUCTS.

 

Our software and information services are highly complex and sophisticated and could, from time to time, contain design defects or errors. We cannot assure you that these defects or errors will not delay the release or shipment of our products or, if the defect or error is discovered only after customers have received the products, that these defects or errors will not result in increased costs, litigation, customer attrition, reduced market acceptance of our systems and services or damage to our reputation.

 

IF WE LOSE KEY MANAGEMENT OR OTHER PERSONNEL OUR BUSINESS WILL SUFFER.

 

We are highly dependent on the principal members of our management staff. We also rely on consultants and advisors to assist us in formulating our development strategy. Our success also depends upon retaining key management and technical personnel, as well as our ability to continue to attract and retain additional highly qualified personnel. We may not be successful in retaining our current personnel or hiring and retaining qualified personnel in the future. If we lose the services of any of our management staff or key technical personnel, or if we fail to continue to attract qualified personnel, our ability to acquire, develop or sell products would be adversely affected.

 

14
 

 

IT MAY BE DIFFICULT FOR SHAREHOLDERS TO RECOVER AGAINST THOSE OF OUR DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS THAT ARE NOT RESIDENTS OF THE U.S.

 

Two of our directors, of whom one is also an executive officer, are residents of the U.K. In addition, our significant operating subsidiary, MAM Software is located in the U.K. Were one or more shareholders to bring an action against us in the U.S. and succeed, either through default or on the merits, and obtain a financial award against an officer or director of the Company, that shareholder may be required to enforce and collect on his or her judgment in the U.K., unless the officer or director owned assets which were located in the U.S. Further, shareholder efforts to bring an action in the U.K. against its citizens for any alleged breach of a duty in a foreign jurisdiction may be difficult, as prosecution of a claim in a foreign jurisdiction, and in particular a foreign nation, is fraught with difficulty and may be effectively, if not financially, unfeasible.

 

OUR MANAGEMENT AND INTERNAL SYSTEMS MIGHT BE INADEQUATE TO HANDLE OUR POTENTIAL GROWTH.

 

Our success will depend in significant part on the expansion of our operations and the effective management of growth. This growth will place a significant strain on our management and information systems and resources and operational and financial systems and resources. To manage future growth, our management must continue to improve our operational and financial systems and expand, train, retain and manage our employee base. Our management may not be able to manage our growth effectively. If our systems, procedures, controls, and resources are inadequate to support our operations, our expansion would be halted and we could lose our opportunity to gain significant market share. Any inability to manage growth effectively may harm our ability to institute our business plan.

 

THE MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK IS LIMITED AND YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SELL YOUR COMMON STOCK.

 

Our Common Stock is currently quoted on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board, and is not traded on a national securities exchange. The market for purchases and sales of the Company’s Common Stock is limited and therefore the sale of a relatively small number of shares could cause the price to fall sharply. Accordingly, it may be difficult to sell shares quickly without significantly depressing the value of the stock. Unless we are successful in developing continued investor interest in our stock, sales of our stock could continue to result in major fluctuations in the price of the stock.

 

THE PRICE OF OUR COMMON STOCK IS LIKELY TO BE VOLATILE AND SUBJECT TO WIDE FLUCTUATIONS.

 

The market price of the securities of software companies has been especially volatile. Thus, the market price of our Common Stock is likely to be subject to wide fluctuations. If our revenues do not grow or grow more slowly than we anticipate, or, if operating or capital expenditures exceed our expectations and cannot be adjusted accordingly, or if some other event adversely affects U.S., the market price of our Common Stock could decline. If the stock market in general experiences a loss in investor confidence or otherwise fails, the market price of our Common Stock could fall for reasons unrelated to our business, results of operations and financial condition. The market price of our stock also might decline in reaction to events that affect other companies in our industry even if these events do not directly affect U.S.

 

15
 

 

SINCE OUR STOCK IS CLASSIFIED AS A “PENNY STOCK,” THE RESTRICTIONS OF THE SEC’S PENNY STOCK REGULATIONS MAY RESULT IN LESS LIQUIDITY FOR OUR STOCK.

 

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has adopted regulations which define a “Penny Stock”  to be any equity security that has a market price (as therein defined) of less than $5.00 per  share  or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transactions involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require the delivery, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock by a retail customer, of a disclosure schedule prepared by the SEC relating to the penny stock market. Disclosure is also required to be made about commissions payable to both the broker/dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the securities. Finally, monthly statements are required to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks. Because the market price for our shares of common stock is less than $5.00, our securities are classified as penny stock. As a result of the penny stock restrictions, brokers or potential investors may be reluctant to trade in our securities, which may result in less liquidity for our stock.

  

WE HAVE INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR THE SERVICES WE OFFER. HOWEVER, A CLAIM FOR DAMAGES MAY BE MADE AGAINST US REGARDLESS OF OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FAILURE, WHICH COULD EXPOSE US TO LIABILITY.

 

We provide business management solutions that we believe are critical to the operations of our customers’ businesses and provide benefits that may be difficult to quantify. Any failure of a customer’s system installed or of the services offered by us could result in a claim for substantial damages against us, regardless of our responsibility for the failure. Although we attempt to limit our contractual liability for damages resulting from negligent acts, errors, mistakes or omissions in rendering our services, we cannot assure you that the limitations on liability we include in our agreements will be enforceable in all cases, or that those limitations on liability will otherwise protect U.S. fromliabilityfordamages.Intheeventthattheterms and conditions of our contracts which limit our liability are not sufficient, we have insurance coverage. This coverage of approximately $5,000,000 in the aggregate in the U.K. and in the U.S. insures the business for negligent acts, error or omission, failure of the technology services to perform as intended, and breach of warranties or representations. It also insures the services that we supply including, web services, consulting, analysis, design, installation, training, support, system integration, the manufacture, sale, licensing, distribution or marketing of software, the design and development of code, software and programming and the provision of software applications as a service, rental or lease. However, there can be no assurance that our insurance coverage will be adequate or that coverage will remain available at acceptable costs. Successful claims brought against U.S. in excess of our insurance coverage could seriously harm our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations. Even if not successful, large claims against U.S. could result in significant legal and other costs and may be a distraction to our senior management.

 

BECAUSE WE HAVE INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS, WE WILL BE SUBJECT TO RISKS OF CONDUCTING BUSINESS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

 

International operations constitute a significant part of our business, and we are subject to the risks of conducting business in foreign countries, including:

 

  difficulty in establishing or managing distribution relationships;

 

  different standards for the development,  use, packaging and marketing of our products and technologies;

 

  our ability to locate qualified local employees, partners, distributors and suppliers;

 

  the potential burden of complying with a variety of foreign laws and trade standards; and

 

  general geopolitical risks, such as political and economic instability, changes in diplomatic and trade relations, and foreign currency risks and fluctuations.

 

No assurance can be given that we will be able to positively manage the risks inherent in the conduct of our international operations or that such operations will not have a negative impact on our overall financial operations.

 

16
 

 

WE DO NOT INTEND TO DECLARE DIVIDENDS ON OUR COMMON STOCK.

 

We will not distribute dividends to our stockholders until and unless we can develop sufficient funds from operations to meet our ongoing needs and implement our business plan. The time frame for that is inherently unpredictable, and you should not plan on it occurring in the near future, if at all.

PART II

 

Item 5.  Market for Registrant’s Common Equity, Related Stockholder Matters and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities.

 

Our Common Stock is traded on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board under the symbol “MAMS.OB.” As of June 30, 2012, there were approximately 333 shareholders of record and 14,296,105 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding. As of September 10, 2012, there were approximately 330 shareholders of record and 14,020,863 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.

 

On September 10, 2012, the bid and ask prices of our Common Stock were $2.14 and $2.20 per share, respectively, as reported by the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board. The following table shows the range of high and low bids per share of our Common Stock as reported by the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board for the fiscal year periods indicated. Such over-the-counter market quotations reflect inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, markdown or commission, and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.

 

On March 25, 2011, (“the Effective Date”), the Company amended its Certificate of Incorporation to effectuate a one-for-one hundred reverse stock split, followed by a ten-for-one forward stock split. Pursuant to this transaction, every 100 shares of the Company's Common Stock were converted into one share of the Company's Common Stock. Immediately thereafter, a forward stock split was undertaken whereby each share of Common Stock was converted into 10 shares of Common Stock. Stockholders owning fewer than 100 shares of Common Stock whose interests were converted into fewer than 1 share of Common Stock pursuant to the reverse split, were converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the average daily closing price per share of the Common Stock on the OTC Bulletin Board for the five trading days immediately before and including the Effective Date, without interest. Stockholders who held 100 or more shares as of the Effective Date received fractional shares in the reverse split and were not cashed out. Any fractional shares held after the ensuing forward split were rounded up to the nearest whole share. All share numbers and per share amounts reported in this annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 and in the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to give effect to the stock split.

On July 11, 2012, the Company issued 27,296 shares of common stock to certain directors, which were valued at approximately $32,000 based on the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grant.

 

These transactions were not registered under the Securities Act in reliance on an exemption from registration set forth in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act in a transaction by the Company not involving a public offering as the shares were granted as compensation for services and the recipients had access to adequate current public information concerning the Company.

 

Item 6.  Selected Financial Data.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 7.  Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Some of the statements contained in this Annual Report on Form 10-K, which are not purely historical, are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s objectives, expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of those terms or other comparable terminology. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, our actual results could differ materially from those disclosed in these statements due to various risk factors and uncertainties affecting our business. We caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. We do not assume responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the forward-looking statements and we do not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this report to conform them to actual results. You should read the following discussion in conjunction with our financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this report.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

We believe the following critical accounting policies, among others, affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements:

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, derivative liabilities, and debt instruments.

 

Financial assets and liabilities that are remeasured and reported at fair value at each reporting period are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

 

  · Level 1 – Fair value based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

  · Level 2 – Fair value based on significant directly observable data (other than Level 1 quoted prices) or significant indirectly observable data through corroboration with observable market data. Inputs would normally be (i) quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, (ii) quoted prices in inactive markets for identical or similar assets or liabilities or (iii) information derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

20
 

 

  · Level 3 – Fair value based on prices or valuation techniques that require significant unobservable data inputs. Inputs would normally be a reporting entity’s own data and judgments about assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

For purposes of determining whether certain instruments are derivatives for accounting treatment, the Company follows the accounting standard that provides guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument, or embedded feature, is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The standard applies to any freestanding financial instruments or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own common stock. 

 

The Company has certain common stock purchase warrants that are accounted for as derivative liabilities as they do not meet the requirements to be treated as equity instruments.  

 

The fair value of these common stock purchase warrants was $442,000 on June 30, 2012.  The fair value of these common stock purchase warrants was $672,000 on June 30, 2011.  The total value of these derivative liabilities decreased for the year ended June 30, 2012, and as a result, the Company recognized a gain of approximately $230,000 from the change in fair value of these warrants for the year ended June 30, 2012 and recognized a loss of approximately $381,000 from the change in fair value of these warrants for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

On December 2, 2010 the Company accounted for all unexercised stock purchase warrants as derivative liabilities because if all outstanding options and warrants were exercised there would be insufficient authorized shares to fulfill the request.  As of that date, additional paid-in capital was reduced by $338,000 and derivative liabilities were increased by $338,000. 

 

On January 21, 2011, 3,563 warrants exercisable at $0.80 were exercised using the cashless exercise provision of the warrant agreement. The average closing price for the prior five days was $1.60 and 1,782 shares of common stock were issued. As a result of this exercise, $4,994 was reclassified to additional paid-in capital from derivative liabilities.

 

On February 11, 2011, 3,563 warrants were exercised for $2,850 and $5,318 was reclassified to additional paid-in capital from derivative liabilities. The fair value of the remaining unexercised warrants was $262,000 as of March 25, 2011, and the Company recorded a gain of $65,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011 in connection with the change in fair value of these warrants.

 

Effective March 25, 2011, the Company completed a reverse/forward stock split and reduced the number of shares outstanding from approximately 139,150,000 to 13,915,000 and no longer accounted for unexercised stock purchase warrants as derivative liabilities. The Company had sufficient authorized shares available for the exercise of all outstanding options and stock purchase warrants. As of March 25, 2011, additional paid-in capital was increased by $262,000 and derivative liabilities were reduced by $262,000.

 

All future changes in the fair value of the Company’s warrants that are still accounted for as derivatives and will be recognized in earnings until such time as the warrants are exercised or expire. These common stock purchase warrants do not trade in an active securities market, and as such, the Company estimates the fair value of these warrants using Black-Scholes and the following assumptions:

 

   June 30,   June 30, 
   2012   2011 
Annual dividend yield   0.0%    0.0% 
Expected life (years)   1.5 -2.25    0.17 -4.00 
Risk-free interest rate   0.25%– 0.33%    0.16%– 1.79% 
Expected volatility   28% - 91%    87% - 151% 

 

Expected volatility is based primarily on historical volatility. Historical volatility was computed using weekly pricing observations for recent periods. The Company believes this method produces an estimate that is representative of the Company’s expectations of future volatility over the expected term of these warrants. The Company currently has no reason to believe future volatility over the expected remaining life of these warrants is likely to differ materially from historical volatility.  The expected life is based on the remaining contractual term of the warrants. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury rate that corresponds to the expected term of the warrants.

Liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized as follows:

 

June 30, 2012  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Derivative liability related to fair value of warrants  $-   $-   $442,000   $442,000 

  

June 30, 2011  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Derivative liability related to fair value of warrants  $-   $-   $672,000   $672,000 

 

The following table details the approximate fair value measurements within the fair value hierarchy of the Company’s derivative liabilities using Level 3 Inputs:

 

Balance as of  July 1, 2010  $291,000 
Warrants reclassified from additional paid-in capital  to derivative liabilities   338,000 
Warrants reclassified from derivative liabilities to additional paid-in capital   (272,000)
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities   315,000 
Balance as of June 30, 2011   672,000 
      
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities   (230,000)
Balance as of June 30, 2012  $442,000 

 

The Company has no assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

The Company has no assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectfully.

 

All future changes in the fair value of these warrants will be recognized in earnings until such time as the warrants are exercised or expire. These common stock purchase warrants do not trade in an active securities market, and as such, the Company estimates the fair value of these warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

 

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

We maintain allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make required payments. The allowance for doubtful accounts is based on specific identification of customer accounts and our best estimate of the likelihood of potential loss, taking into account such factors as the financial condition and payment history of major customers. We evaluate the collectibility of our receivables at least quarterly. The allowance for doubtful accounts is subject to estimates based on the historical actual costs of bad debt experienced, total accounts receivable amounts, age of accounts receivable and any knowledge of the customers’ ability or inability to pay outstanding balances. If the financial condition of our customers were to deteriorate, resulting in impairment of their ability to make payments, additional allowances may be required. The differences could be material and could significantly impact cash flows from operating activities.

 

Software Development Costs

 

Costs incurred to develop computer software products to be sold or otherwise marketed are charged to expense until technological feasibility of the product has been established. Once technological feasibility has been established, computer software development costs (consisting primarily of internal labor costs) are capitalized and reported at the lower of amortized cost or estimated realizable value. Purchased software development cost is recorded at its estimated fair market value. When a product is ready for general release, its capitalized costs are amortized on a product-by-product basis. The annual amortization is the greater of the ratio that current gross revenue for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues  for  that  product:  and,  the straight-line method  over the remaining estimated economic life (a period of three years) of the product including the period being reported on. If the future market viability of a software product is less than anticipated, impairment of the related unamortized development costs could occur, which could significantly impact the Company’s results of operations.

 

22
 

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill and intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are not amortized but rather are tested at least annually for impairment. Goodwill is subject to impairment reviews by applying a fair-value-based test at the reporting unit level, which generally represents operations one level below the segments reported by the Company.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company’s management assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets (other than goodwill discussed above) upon the occurrence of a triggering event by determining whether the carrying value of the long-lived asset can be recovered through projected undiscounted future cash flows over its remaining life. The amount of long-lived asset impairment, if any, is measured based on fair value and is charged to operations in the period in which long-lived asset impairment is determined by management. At June 30, 2012, management believes there is no impairment of its long-lived assets. There can be no assurance, however, that market conditions will not change or demand for the Company’s products and services will continue, which could result in impairment of long-lived assets in the future.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Software license revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery of the product component has occurred, the fee is fixed and determinable, and collectability is probable. If any of these criteria are not met, revenue recognition is deferred until such time as all of the criteria are met. The Company accounts for delivered elements in accordance with the selling price when arrangements include multiple product components or other elements and vendor-specific objective evidence exists for the value of all undelivered elements. Revenues on undelivered elements are recognized once delivery is complete.

 

In those instances in which arrangements include significant customization, contractual milestones, acceptance criteria or other contingencies (which represents the majority of the Company’s arrangements), the Company accounts for the arrangements  using contract accounting, as follows:

 

  1) When customer acceptance can be estimated, but reliable estimated costs to complete cannot be determined, expenditures are capitalized as work-in process and deferred until completion of the contract at which time the costs and revenues are recognized.

 

  2) When customer acceptance cannot be estimated based on historical evidence, costs are expensed as incurred and revenue is recognized at the completion of the contract when customer acceptance is obtained.

 

The Company records amounts collected from customers in excess of recognizable revenue as deferred revenue in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Revenues for maintenance agreements, software support, on-line services and information products are recognized ratably over the term of the service agreement.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. Deferred taxation is provided in full in respect of timing differences between the treatment of certain items for taxation and accounting purposes. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 Overview

 

MAM Software Group, Inc. (“MAM,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) is a technology holding company that has one wholly owned subsidiary based in the U.S., Aftersoft Network, N.A., Inc. (“ASNA”) and one in the U.K., MAM Software Limited (“MAM Ltd.”) based in Tankersley, Barnsley, U.K., which operate independently from one another. ASNA has one wholly owned operating subsidiary (i) MAM Software, Inc., and two inactive wholly owned subsidiaries, (ii) AFS Warehouse Distribution Management, Inc., and (iii) AFS Tire Management, Inc., which are all based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. We have and continue to market and develop business management software solutions that manage both the business and supply chain for small- and medium-sized firms in the automotive aftermarket. The automotive aftermarket includes those businesses that supply servicing, parts, oil, tires, and performance extras to the retail market.

 

We believe that the largest single issue facing the automotive aftermarket at this time is the down turn of the global economy, especially the economies in which we operate. The constraint of credit within the U.S. and U.K. markets is forcing automobile owners to retain their existing automobiles far longer than they may have previously planned. This phenomenon is forcing owners to seek out more economic ways of maintaining their vehicles, and we believe this presents an opportunity to the Company. The need for consumers to maintain their vehicles longer requires service suppliers to offer a wide range of services at highly competitive prices. We believe that this can be achieved only by those businesses that are able to efficiently manage their businesses and find methods to reduce costs without affecting service levels, which may best be done through investments in ‘up to date’ management information systems, specifically those designed for the automotive market. However, we have recently noticed that some businesses wishing to invest in new management systems are also finding their access to credit reduced. This may have a detrimental effect on our revenues if customers are unable to fund purchases. We still believe that the aftermarket landscape will continue to change over the next 18 months, with the convergence of the aftermarket and tire markets, but this rate of change maybe slower than first expected.

 

Our revenue and income is derived primarily from the sale of software, data, services and support. In the U.K., we also earn a percentage of our revenue and income from the sale of hardware systems to clients.  In the year ended June 30, 2012, we generated revenues of $26,090,000 and had net income of $4,096,000; 70% of these revenues came from the U.K. market.

 

We are headquartered in Barnsley, U.K. and maintain additional offices for our U.S. operating subsidiary in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and, for our U.K. operating subsidiary, in Barnsley, Northampton and Wareham.

 

The software that we sell is mainly a Microsoft Windows TM based technology, although we do still have an older ‘Green Screen’ terminal-based product. The four main products that we support in the U.S. cover all of the components of the automotive aftermarket supply chain. First is “warehouse distribution.” Into this market we sell our Autopart product to new prospects and continue to support our Direct Step product.  Both products enable large warehouses with hundreds of thousands of stock keeping units (sku’s) to locate, manage, pack and deliver the parts with ease and efficiency. Second, these parts are distributed to the next business in the chain, which is the “jobber.” Into this market segment we also sell our Autopart product, which manages a jobber’s whole business (i.e., financial, stock control and order management) but more importantly enables the jobber to quickly identify the parts that his client needs, either via the internet or telephone, so that the correct product for the vehicle on the ramp can be supplied. The third and next segment of the automotive aftermarket supply chain is the “installer,” which repairs and maintains automobiles. The installer needs systems that enable him to efficiently and simply manage his businesses, whether as a single entity or national multi-site franchise. Into this segment we sell VAST. The fourth segment is the “OpenWebs™.” This technology allows these three separate business solutions to connect to each other to allow, among other processes, ordering, invoicing and stock checking to take place in real- time both up and down the supply chain. The U.K. market differs from that of the U.S. in that it does not have the same number of large warehouse distribution centers, so we do not sell the Direct Step product in the U.K. We continue to sell the Autopart product to the jobber market, but sell Autowork Online to the installer market.  In the U.K., we also sell our catalog solution, Autocat+, which is an Internet-based identification tool used by the warehouse distribution, jobber and installer.

 

24
 

 

To date, our management has identified five areas that it believes we need to focus on.  The first area is the continued success of Autowork Online, our new “installer” solution in the U.K.  The product has been developed by MAM Ltd., our U.K. subsidiary, under the ‘cloud’ computing model. This is where software solutions are made available to end- users via the Internet and does not require them to purchase the software directly but ‘rent’ it over a fixed period of time. Our management believes that this will be a rapidly growing market for the U.K. as businesses continue to look for ways of reducing capital expenditures while maintaining levels of service. Autowork Online was launched in 2010 and as of June 30, 2012 we had 2,622 subscribers of this service.  The product is currently being localized and prepared for release into the U.S. market.

 

The second area of focus is the sales and marketing strategy within the U.S. market. Our management believes that continued investment in this key area is required to help the development of the MAM brand.  During the twelve month period ending June 30th 2012, the Company added seven sales and marketing personnel and is actively seeking to recruit additional sales personnel.

 

The third area of focus relates to the continued sales and market initiatives tied to the Autopart product within the U.S. market. A senior member of the U.K. management team was appointed to join the U.S. business in 2009 to head the efforts relating to this product.  To date this move has proved successful, as we have secured new business, increased levels of interest in Autopart as well as improving service and knowledge of our U.S. staff members.  

 

The fourth area is within the U.K. market and we are continually working to sustain the levels of growth in the U.K. business by focusing on additional vertical markets, which share common issues to that of the automotive market. We have developed a reputation of high levels of service and knowledge within the automotive market; and are now working on replicating this reputation in these additional vertical markets.  Our management intends to carefully monitor this expansion as a result of the current state of the global economy.

 

The fifth area is the continued investment in research and development that will allow us to deliver innovative new solutions and modules in support of the previous four key areas. During the year ending June 30th 2012 a number of new modules were launched including EMI+, a new business intelligence solution with mobile capability and a new warehouse management software module that integrates seamlessly with Autopart.

  

Impact of Currency Exchange Rate

 

Our net revenue derived from sales in currencies other than the U.S. dollar was 70% and 74% for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively.   As the U.S. dollar strengthens in relation to the Great Britain Pound (“GBP”), as it has recently done, our revenue and income, which is reported in U.S. dollars, is negatively impacted.  Changes in the currency values occur regularly and in some instances may have a significant effect on our results of operations.

 

Income and expenses of our MAM subsidiary are translated at the average exchange rate.  The exchange rate for MAM’s operating results was US $1.5844 per GBP for the year ended June 30, 2012, compared with US $1.5905 per GBP for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

Assets and liabilities of our MAM subsidiary are translated into U.S. dollars at the period-end exchange rates.  The exchange rate used for translating our MAM subsidiary was US $1.5615 per GBP at June 30, 2012 and US $1. 6018 per GBP at June 30, 2011.

 

Currency translation (loss) adjustments are accumulated as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, which totaled ($930,000) and ($561,000) as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  

 

25
 

 

Backlog

 

As of June 30, 2012, we had a backlog of unfilled orders of business management systems of $1,324,000, compared to a backlog of $1,800,000 at June 30, 2011.  We expect to fill approximately 65% of such backlog during the next six months.

 

Results of Operations

 

Our results of operations for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 compared with the year ended June 30, 2011 were as follows:

 

Revenues. Revenues increased $471,000 or 1.8% to $26,090,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012, compared with $25,619,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011.  Revenues in our U.K. business were 11,607,000GBP for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared to 12,129,000GBP for the year ended June 30, 2011. Revenues decreased 522,000GBP or 4.3% primarily from reduced revenue from new system sales which resulted in a reduction in reported revenues of $827,000. The stronger U.S. dollar resulted in lower reported revenues of $74,000. U.K. revenues reported in U.S. dollars were $18,390,000 for 2012 as compared to $19,291,000 during 2011, which is a decrease of $901,000.  U.S. revenues increased $1,372,000 or 21.7% to $7,700,000 in 2012 from $6,328,000 in 2011 because of increased software sales.

 

Cost of Revenues. Total cost of revenues decreased $171,000 or 1.6% to $10,676,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012, compared with $10,847,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. Cost of revenues as a percentage of revenues decreased from 42% for the year ended June 30, 2011 to 41% for the year ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in cost of revenues was the result of an increased percentage of higher margin sales.  MAM Software Ltd.’s expenses decreased 204,000GBP or 4.1% in 2012, to 4,788,000GBP from 4,992,000GBP for 2011 because of decreased costs resulting from lower system and hardware revenue. U.K. expenses reported in U.S. dollars decreased $353,000 or 4.4%.  The U.S. expenses increased $182,000 to $3,089,000 from $2,907,000 in 2011, which was in line with the increased U.S. revenues. As a result of ongoing cost-cutting initiatives, we have been able to minimize any increase in the cost of sales after a thorough review of operations throughout the Company, but focused primarily on the U.S. operations, which revealed discretionary items that were capable of being reduced or eliminated without sacrificing revenues. Included in such items were the elimination or reduction of cost and expenses such as travel for sales personnel that was not directly related to new business development or closing a sale; reduction of non-performing sales staff from the U.S. payroll; and outsourcing of software development work where feasible.

 

Operating Expenses. The following tables set forth, for the periods indicated, our operating expenses and the variance thereof:

 

   For the Twelve Months Ended 
June 30,
         
   2012   2011   $ Variance   % Variance 
Research and development  $3,267,000   $3,150,000   $117,000    3.7%
Sales and marketing   2,709,000    2,225,000    484,000    21.8%
General and administrative   3,448,000    4,189,000    (741,000)   -17.7%
Depreciation and amortization   1,198,000    1,109,000    89,000    8.0%
Total Operating Expenses  $10,622,000   $10,673,000   $(51,000)   -0.5%

 

Operating expenses decreased by $51,000 or 0.5% for the year ended June 30, 2012 compared with the year ended June 30, 2011. This is due to the following:

 

Research and Development Expenses. Research and development expenses increased $117,000 or 3.7% for the year ended June 30, 2012, when compared with the previous fiscal year. This increase was due to an increase in engineering personnel and related costs of $121,000 in the U.K. business. The U.S. business experienced a decrease of $5,000 due to a reduction in overall costs.

 

Sales and Marketing Expenses. Sales and marketing expenses increased by $484,000 or 21.8% for the year ended June 30, 2012 compared with the year ended June 30, 2011. The U.S. business experienced a net increase in expenses of $330,000 from additions in advertising and show expenses and additional sales personnel.

 

26
 

 

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased by $741,000 or 17.7% to $3,448,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $4,189,000 for  the same period in 2011.  The decreased expenses were primarily the result of $300,000 less U.S. litigation settlement expense and the associated legal fees, $100,000 less in U.S. rent and facility costs from the closing of the Dana Point, California office, $200,000 less in officer’s equity compensation and $160,000 less in U.K. overall expenses.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses. Depreciation and amortization expenses increased by $89,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared with the same period in 2011.   

 

Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased by $462,000 to $191,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012. The decrease in interest expense is primarily related to our interest associated with our loan from ComVest Capital LLC, which the Company repaid in full in October 2010. We incurred interest under the ComVest loan of $347,000, during 2011. The remaining ComVest interest of $78,000 was accounted for in amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs, which are included in interest expense. HSBC cash interest was approximately $166,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 and debt issuance cost amortization was approximately $25,000, compared to cash interest of $46,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011 and the debt issuance cost amortization was approximately $24,000.  Other smaller loans were repaid during the year resulting in additional reduced interest expense of $0.

 

Other Income (Expenses). Other income for the year ended June 30, 2012 included an adjustment for the change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $230,000 and a gain on settlement of liabilities of $215,000.

 

Income Taxes. Income taxes increased $45,000 to $950,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $905,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. This increase was the result of increased profits in fiscal 2012 and the absence in the reduction in deferred tax included in fiscal 2011 with no repeating benefit in 2012.

 

Net Income. We realized income of $4,096,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 compared with income of $2,288,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our principal sources of liquidity are cash on hand and cash generated from operations. To date, most of our profits have been generated in Europe, but with the introduction of new products and our successful efforts to streamline our U.S. operations, all U.S. operating entities experienced increased revenues and profits in fiscal 2012. We expect this trend to continue and look forward to an increase in overall revenues and profits from our U.S. operations in fiscal 2013.

 

During the year ended June 30, 2012 we repaid approximately $770,000 on our HSBC Loan and on our secured notes. During the year ended June 30, 2011 we repaid approximately $4,983,000 on our ComVest Loan, $408,000 on our loan to HSBC, and $63,000 on our secured notes.  We also made monthly payments of $133,000 according to the terms of a note, a $670,000 payoff amount for a settlement of a litigation and recorded a gain of $52,000 from the settlement of a liability.  These payments were made from cash flow generated from operations. We purchased 1,240,337 shares of our Common Stock at a cost of $2,430,000 and were able to increase our cash position by $858,000. As of June 30, 2012 we owe HSBC $945,000 and are repaying approximately $59,000 per month for the term of the loan. As of June 30, 2011 we owed HSBC $1,669,000.

 

We believe our existing cash balance, and the cash expected to be generated from operations, will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs for at least the next 12 months. Our future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including our level of net sales, the timing and extent of expenditures to support our development activities and the continued market acceptance of our products. We could be required, or we may choose, to seek additional funding through public or private equity or debt financing. In addition, in connection with any future acquisitions, we may require additional funding which may be provided in the form of additional debt or equity financing or a combination of both. These additional funds may not be available on terms acceptable to us, or at all.

 

Working Capital

 

Working capital at June 30, 2012 was $1,674,000 and increase of $2,299,000 from a working capital deficit of ($625,000) at June 30, 2011. The working capital increase resulted primarily from a $858,000 increase in cash, a $167,000 increase in net accounts receivable, a $225,000 increase in prepaid expenses, a $457,000 decrease in accrued expenses, a $230,000 decrease in derivative liabilities, a $327,000 decrease in the current portion of long-term debt, $209,000 in sales tax payable, partially offset by a $198,000 increase in accounts payable, and a $195,000 increase in accrued payroll and other taxes.

Capital Expenditures

 

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2012 and 2011 were $138,000 and $113,000 respectively.

 

HSBC Bank plc.

 

On October 25, 2010, MAM Ltd., entered into a three-year term loan agreement with HSBC Bank plc. (“HSBC”) as lender (the “HSBC Term Loan”). The HSBC Term Loan provides for £1,324,550 (approximately $2.0 million at the exchange rate on October 25, 2010) with a term of three years from the date the HSBC Term Loan is first drawn down. The HSBC Term Loan is repayable in thirty-six (36) monthly installments, inclusive of interest, together with such sums in the final month to discharge the balance of the HSBC Term Loan. The proceeds of the HSBC Term Loan were  used to fully repay the residual balance of the credit facility due to ComVest Capital LLC (“ComVest”) from the Company (see below).

 

The interest rate under the HSBC Term Loan is 2.9% per annum over HSBC’s Sterling Base Rate, as published from time to time, which totals 3.4% at June 30, 2011. A prepayment fee of 1.5% of the amount prepaid will be payable by the Company in the event the Term Loan is refinanced by another lender.

 

The HSBC Term Loan is secured by the following instruments: a guarantee granted by the Company, ASNA and MAM Software Inc. in favor of HSBC pursuant to which each would guarantee the repayment of the HSBC Term Loan (the “Guarantee”); an all assets debenture granted by MAM Ltd. in favor of HSBC including a first fixed charge over book debts and stock, which would create fixed and floating the charges over the assets and undertaking of MAM Ltd. for the provision of the HSBC Term Loan (“Debenture”); and a mortgage of the life insurance policies in favor of MAM Ltd. in relation to a Company  employee and the Company’s CEO. The Company recorded debt issuance fees of approximately $60,000 related to the HSBC Term Loan, which is being amortized over the life of the loan. Amortization expense was $25,000 year ended June 30, 2012 and $25,000 year ended June 30, 2011.

 

The HSBC Term Loan contains various financial covenants. As of June 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.

 

ComVest Capital LLC Loan Agreement

 

On December 21, 2007, the Company entered into a Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with ComVest Capital LLC (“ComVest”), as lender, pursuant to which ComVest agreed to extend a $1,000,000 secured revolving Credit Facility and a $5,000,000 Term Loan. The Loan Agreement contained customary affirmative and negative covenants, which included maximum limits for capital expenditures per fiscal year, and ratios for liquidity. On October 26, 2010, the Company repaid in full the Loan Agreement, in part, from the proceeds from the HSBC Term Loan.

 

Warrants. In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Company issued warrants to ComVest to purchase the following amounts of shares of the Company’s Common Stock, exercisable after the Closing Date and expiring December 31, 2013: a) Warrant to purchase 100,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.125 per share; b) Warrant to purchase 200,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.90 per share; and c) Warrant to purchase 208,334 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.625 per share; (each, a “Warrant”) (the 508,334 shares collectively issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are referred to herein as the “Warrant Shares”).  The exercise prices of certain of these warrants were amended. The fair value of the Warrant Shares was $868,000 using a Black-Scholes valuation model and also contains a cashless exercise feature.  The warrant valuation was computed using a 3.5% risk-free interest rate, a 99% volatility and a six-year life. The value of the Warrant Shares was included in debt discount, was recorded in the consolidated balance sheet as a reduction in the carrying value of the debt, and was amortized and charged to interest expense over the term of the loan using the effective interest method.

The number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, and/or the applicable exercise prices, may be proportionately adjusted in the event of any stock dividend, distribution, stock split, stock combination, stock consolidation, recapitalization or reclassification or similar transaction. In addition, the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrant Shares, and/or the applicable exercise prices may be adjusted in the event of certain issuances of shares of the Company’s common stock, or securities entitling any person to acquire shares of common stock, at any time while the Warrants are outstanding, at an effective price per share which is less than the then-effective exercise prices of the Warrants. Subsequently, the exercise prices of the warrants were reduced as a result of certain down-round protection provisions contained therein following the issuance by the Company of additional shares of common stock and common stock equivalents.

  

The Company also granted certain registration rights and piggyback registration rights to the holder(s) of the securities underlying the Term Note and Warrants.  The registration for the sales of the securities underlying the Term Note and Warrants was declared effective by the SEC on May 1, 2009.

 

As a result of the additional shares issued in the Rights Offering, completed on October 15, 2010, the exercise price for 208,334 ComVest Warrants were reduced from $3.52 per share to $2.45 per share and the exercise price for 300,000 ComVest Warrants were reduced from $1.07 per share to $0.92 per share.

 

The Company issued warrants to purchase 25,000 shares of common stock as compensation to a consultant for assistance in securing the $5,000,000 Term Loan. The warrants were valued at $42,000 using Black-Scholes and were included in debt issuance cost. The warrant valuation was computed using a 3.5% risk free interest rate, a 99% volatility and a six-year life.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. In addition, we do not have any undisclosed borrowings or debt, and we have not entered into any synthetic leases. We are, therefore, not materially exposed to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if we had engaged in such relationships.

 

Current Products and Services

 

Meeting the needs of the automotive aftermarket requires a combination of business management systems, information products and online services that combine to deliver benefits for all parties involved in the timely repair of a vehicle. Our products and services include:

 

  · Business management systems comprised of our proprietary software applications, implementation and training and third-party hardware and peripherals;

 

  ·

Information products such as an accessible catalog database related to parts, tires, labor estimates, scheduled maintenance, repair information, technical service bulletins, pricing and product features and benefits, which are  used by the different participants in the automotive aftermarket;

 

· Online services and products that connect manufacturers, warehouse distributors, retailers and automotive service providers via the internet. These products enable electronic data interchange throughout the automotive aftermarket supply chain among the different trading partners. They also enable procurement and business services to be projected over the internet to an expanded business audience. Some U.K. clients use our information products on their own websites and intranets; some clients in North America and the U.K.  use our systems and branded software to obtain relevant and up-to-date information via the internet; and

 

  · Customer support and consulting services that provide phone and online support, implementation and training.

Need for Technology Solutions

 

A variety of factors drive the automotive market’s need for sophisticated technology solutions, including the following:

 

Inventory Management

 

Industry sources suggest that approximately 35% of parts produced are never sold and 30% of parts stocked are never sold. Approximately 25% of parts sold are eventually returned due to insufficient knowledge or capability by either the parts supplier counterman or the auto service provider installer. Clearly, there is substantial inefficiency in the automotive aftermarket supply chain. This inefficiency results in excess inventory carrying costs, logistical costs and the over-production of parts and tires at the manufacturer level. Overcoming these challenges requires the combination of business systems software, information products, and connectivity services we offer.

 

Competition

 

In the U.S., the need for technology solutions has been accelerated by the expansion of large specialty parts retailers such as Advance Auto Parts, Inc. and large auto service chains like Monro Muffler and Brake, Inc. This expansion has driven smaller competitors to computerize or upgrade their existing systems with more modern business management solutions enabled for information products and online services. Many of the systems  used by smaller competitors today are older, character-based or systems developed in-house that have a limited ability to integrate current information products and online services.

 

Volume and Complexity of Information

 

Businesses in the automotive aftermarket manage large volumes of information from numerous sources with complex inter-relationships. There are over 4.5 million different stock-keeping units (“SKU”) available to parts sellers in the product catalogs used by the U.S. automotive aftermarket. The numbers of SKU increase in the order of some 5% each year. Moreover, manufacturers update product information and product prices with increasing frequency as they improve their internal processing and try to keep pace with consumer trends. As a result, most automotive aftermarket businesses require sophisticated inventory management systems, accurate and timely information on parts, tires, and repair delivered through online services to communicate, manage and present this volume of data effectively.

 

Customer Service Requirements

 

Consumer demand for same-day repair service and the need to maintain efficient use of repair bays, forces automotive service providers to demand prompt and accurate delivery of specific parts and tires from their suppliers. Getting the required product promptly depends on all the parties having access to timely information about product price and availability. To meet these demanding customer service requirements successfully, automotive aftermarket participants need business management systems, product information and online services that enable workers to reliably and accurately transact their business between warehouse distributors, parts stores and automotive service providers.

 

Regional Efficiencies

 

The use and availability of a combination of business management systems, information products and online services has resulted in the development of regional trading networks among auto service provider chains, stores and warehouse distributors of parts and tires. This enables participants to achieve the efficiencies and customer service levels that are critical to being competitive and successful against the larger retail and service chains in the automotive aftermarket.

Areas of Growth

 

We expect growth in the automotive aftermarket will continue to be driven by:

 

  · gradual growth in the aggregate number of vehicles in  use;

 

  · an increase in the average age of vehicles in operation;

 

  · fewer new vehicles being purchased due to a slowdown in the economy;

 

  · growth in the total number of miles driven per vehicle per year; and

 

  · increased vehicle complexity.

 

Plans for Growth

 

We see opportunities to expand the breadth of our client base within the automotive industry and diversify into new industries with similarly complex needs. We plan to offer tailored business management and distribution software to the wholesale distributor market of the automotive industry. We have also started to expand and diversify our client and product mix in the U.K. to serve the lumber and hardware industries, which we believe have an unmet need for the efficiency offered by our suite of business software solutions and services. Our growth plans include adapting and updating our software products to serve other vertical markets as well as through potential acquisitions.

 

Additional Vertical Markets: Plumbing Merchants, Electrical Wholesalers, Builders Merchants and Lumber Merchants.

 

We believe that construction-related businesses would benefit from the business management and distribution systems developed by MAM Software Ltd for its customers in the automotive aftermarket. We already have over 50 clients in the UK and Ireland operating in the plumbing, building, lumber, and electrical wholesale distribution markets that are using a derivative of MAM Software Ltd.’s Autopart product, known as “Trader.” We originally moved the Autopart product into these additional vertical markets a number of years ago after being approached by companies operating within these vertical markets that could not find a management solution that satisfied their requirements. To date, these additional vertical markets have made only a limited contribution to the revenues of MAM Software Ltd.

 

We have been increasing our promotion of the “Trader” product to these markets, specifically targeting small and medium sized businesses with revenues of between $500,000 and $10 million. We are, and intend to continue, doing this through a number of channels, internet, direct marketing, advertorials and trade shows. We have also looked to raise awareness of the Trader product by placing advertisements in trade journals and will continue to look to have articles and editorial reviews written about the product and its advantages for those operating within these markets. We have also been targeting small and medium sized businesses within these vertical markets with direct mail pieces such as product fliers, and case studies from the small client base we have in this market. These have then been followed up by MAM’s existing internal sales team to generate qualified leads for the external sales representatives. We recognize that we will need increased industry experience to sell effectively within these markets and intend to recruit a suitably experienced and qualified sales manager to lead this development. In addition to direct marketing we have attended trade shows and exhibitions that have given us the opportunity to invite businesses that we have targeted previously while giving us exposure to those businesses that as yet we haven’t connected with.

 

Strategic Goals

 

We hope to increase our share of the U.S. and Canadian markets by (i) increasing the sales and marketing presence of our Autopart product, (ii), focusing on the service station element of the market (iii) and establishing OpenWebs™ as the e-commerce standard within the Automotive market. In the U.K. we expect to continue to grow our market share through (i) moving our supply chain management software into new vertical markets, (ii) alliances with major manufacturers and national retail chains within the automotive aftermarket, and (iii) an increased marketing presence. We believe that our successful experience within the automotive market will translate well into other vertical markets that have similarly complex supply chains. By developing specific sales teams with relevant market experience and supporting with them suitable marketing collateral, we believe that within two years these teams will generate significant revenue and earnings. The Company plans, at this stage, to focus only on the U.K. for these additional vertical market opportunities.

Summary

 

We expect to see continued growth from both the U.S. and U.K. operations during fiscal 2013 with strong growth in revenues and operating income from the U.S. operation. We have identified a number of opportunities to widen our client base within the automotive industry and are actively pursuing those at this time. We also expect to see increases in revenue over the next two quarters, specifically due to new products and modules being released as well as enhancements to existing products.

 

We intend to continue to work at maximizing customer retention by supplying and developing products that streamline and simplify customer operations, thereby increasing their profit margin. By supporting our customers’ recurring revenues, we expect to continue to build our own revenue stream. We believe that we can continue to grow our customer base through additional sales personnel, targeted media and marketing campaigns and products that completely fit clients’ requirements. We also intend to service existing clients at higher levels and increasingly partner with them so that together we both will achieve our goals.

 

MAM generated approximately $4,600,000 from operations for the year ended June 30, 2012. Revenues in the U.K. are continuing to generate positive cash flow and free cash and the U.S. operations are also generating free cash flow but corporate expenses resulted in a negative cash flow for the year ended June 30, 2012. Our current plans still require us to hire additional sales and marketing staff and to support expanded operations overall.  We believe our plan will strengthen our relationships with our existing customers and provide new income streams by targeting additional English-speaking auto industry aftermarkets for our Autopart product.  If we continue to experience negative cash flow we will be required to limit our growth plan.

Item 9A.  Controls and Procedures

 

(a)  Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of June 30, 2012. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act 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 our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

   

(b)  Management’s report on internal control over financial reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012 based  on  the  criteria  set forth  in Internal  Control—Integrated  Framework  issued  by  the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on our evaluation under the criteria set forth in Internal Control—Integrated Framework, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of June 30, 2012.

 

This Annual Report does not include an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. We were not required to have, nor have we engaged our independent registered public accounting firm to perform, an audit on our internal control over financial reporting pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report.

 

Inherent Limitations on Internal Control

 

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. Further, the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. 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, have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple errors. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

 

(c)  Changes in internal control over financial reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting in the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Severance Benefits

 

As described above, each of the employment agreements with our officers contains a severance benefit for that officer if he or she is terminated other than for cause or the officer leaves the Company after a change in control, provided they leave for “good reason.” We provide this benefit because we want executives to focus on the Company’s business and enhancing stockholder value without undue concern about any possible loss of their job.

 

Retirement Plans

 

We do not offer retirement plans for our officers.

 

40
 

 

Change in Control

 

Each officer’s employment agreement contains standard provisions that protect that officer in the event there is a change in control that has not been approved by our Board of Directors. In addition, our LTIP provides for acceleration of vesting in the event of a change in control.

 

The precise terms and conditions of each employment agreement are described above.

 

Perquisites

 

We offer limited perquisites for our executives. We may offer life insurance policies for our Named Executive Officers, but as of the date of this report, have yet to establish those policies.

 

Board Process

 

The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors approves all compensation and awards to executive officers, which include the Chief Executive, the Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Operating Officer, and any other Named Executive Officers. Generally, on its own initiative the Compensation Committee reviews the performance and compensation of the Chief Executive, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Operating Officer and, following discussions with those individuals, establishes their compensation levels where it deems appropriate. For the remaining officers, the Chief Executive Officer makes recommendations to the Compensation Committee that generally, with such adjustments and modifications that are deemed necessary or appropriate by the Committee, are approved. With respect to equity-based compensation awarded to others, the Compensation Committee grants restricted stock, generally based upon the recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer.

 

The Compensation Committee believes that objectives cannot be established in a vacuum and thus invites management’s input into the establishment of milestones. Although Committee meetings are held in executive session, without management’s presence, the Committee (and from time to time individual members of the Committee) routinely meets with senior officers of the Company to discuss objectives, to explain the rationale for certain objectives or milestones, and to assure that it has management’s input in assessing the consequences of decisions made in Committee, for instance, the impact that its decisions may have on our financial statements. The Committee’s interactions with management seek to achieve a balance between receiving management’s buy-in for objectives and assuring that management is not actually or effectively establishing the terms and parameters for its own compensation.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Disclosures in this Compensation Discussion & Analysis may contain certain forward-looking. Statements that do not relate strictly to historical or current facts are forward-looking and usually identified by the  use of words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “approximate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe” and other words of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial matters.

 

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this report include the matters discussed regarding the expectation of compensation plans, strategies, objectives, and growth and anticipated financial and operational performance of the Company and its subsidiaries. A variety of factors could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the Company’s forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties that may affect the operations, performance and results of the Company’s business and forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to those set forth herein.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

Board of Directors and Stockholders

MAM Software Group, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of MAM Software Group, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income, stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of MAM Software Group, Inc. and subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

MAM SOFTWARE GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

June 30, 2012 and 2011

 

NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

MAM Software Group, Inc. (“MAM” or the “Company”) is a leading provider of business and supply chain management solutions primarily to automotive parts manufacturers, retailers, tire and service chains, independent installers and wholesale distributors in the automotive aftermarket. The Company conducts its businesses through wholly owned subsidiaries with operations in Europe and North America. MAM Software Ltd. (“MAM Ltd.”) is based in Tankersley, Barnsley, United Kingdom (“U.K.”) and Aftersoft Network, N.A., Inc., (“ASNA”) has offices in the United States (“U.S.”) in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  ASNA has one wholly owned operating subsidiary (i) MAM Software, Inc., and two inactive wholly owned subsidiaries, (ii) AFS Warehouse Distribution Management, Inc., and (iii) AFS Tire Management, Inc., which are all based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. MAM has offices in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

 

Effective December 30, 2011, the Company amended its Certificate of Incorporation to reduce the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 150,000,000 to 18,000,000 and to reduce the number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock from 10,000,000 to 2,000,000.

 

On March 25, 2011, (“the Effective Date”), the Company amended its Certificate of Incorporation to effectuate a one-for-one hundred reverse stock split, followed by a ten-for-one forward stock split. Pursuant to this transaction, every 100 shares of the Company's Common Stock were converted into one share of the Company's Common Stock. Immediately thereafter, a forward stock split was undertaken whereby each share of Common Stock was converted into 10 shares of Common Stock. Stockholders owning fewer than 100 shares of Common Stock whose interests were converted into fewer than 1 share of Common Stock pursuant to the reverse split, were converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the average daily closing price per share of the Common Stock on the OTC Bulletin Board for the five trading days immediately before and including the Effective Date, without interest. Stockholders who held 100 or more shares as of the Effective Date received fractional shares in the reverse split and were not cashed out. Any fractional shares held after the ensuing forward split were rounded up to the nearest whole share. All share numbers and per share amounts in the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to give effect to the stock split.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

The Company has no significant off-balance-sheet concentrations of credit risk such as foreign exchange contracts, options contracts or other foreign hedging arrangements.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

In the U.S., the Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. In addition to the basic insurance deposit coverage, effective December 31, 2010, the FDIC provided temporary unlimited coverage for noninterest bearing transaction accounts through December 31, 2012.  At June 30, 2012 the Company did not have balances in these accounts in excess of the FDIC insurance limits. For banks outside of the U.S., the Company maintains its cash accounts at financial institutions which it believes to be credit worthy. Bank accounts maintained outside the U.S. are not insured. The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents to the extent the funds are not being held for investment purposes.

 

F-8
 

 

Customers

 

The Company performs periodic evaluations of its customers and maintains allowances for potential credit losses as deemed necessary. The Company generally does not require collateral to secure its accounts receivable. Credit risk is managed by discontinuing sales to customers who are delinquent. The Company estimates credit losses and returns based on management’s evaluation of historical experience and current industry trends. Although the Company expects to collect amounts due, actual collections may differ from the estimated amounts. No customers accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s revenues for each of the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. No customers accounted for more than 10% or more of the Company’s accounts receivable at June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011.

 

Segment Reporting

 

The Company operates in one reportable segment.  The Company evaluates financial performance on a Company-wide basis. The Company’s chief operating decision-maker is the chief executive officer, who evaluates the Company as a single segment.

 

Geographic Concentrations

 

The Company conducts business in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. For customers headquartered in their respective countries, the Company derived 30% of its revenues from the U.S. and Canada, and 70% from its U.K. operations during the year ended June 30, 2012 compared to 25% of its revenues from the U.S., 1% from Canada, and 74% from its U.K. operations during the year ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

 

At June 30, 2012, the Company maintained 67% of its net property and equipment in the U.K. and the remaining 33% in the U.S. At June 30, 2011, the Company maintained 67% of its net property and equipment in the U.K. and the remaining 33% in the U.S.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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 period. Significant estimates made by the Company’s management include, but are not limited to, the collectibility of accounts receivable, the realizability of inventories, the fair value of investments in available-for-sale securities, the recoverability of goodwill and other long-lived assets, valuation of deferred tax assets and liabilities, the valuation of derivative liabilities and the estimated fair value of stock options, warrants and shares issued for non-cash consideration. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, derivative liabilities, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and debt instruments. Financial assets and liabilities that are remeasured and reported at fair value at each reporting period are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:

 

• Level 1 – Fair value based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

• Level 2 – Fair value based on significant directly observable data (other than Level 1 quoted prices) or significant indirectly observable data through corroboration with observable market data. Inputs would normally be

 

F-9
 

 

(i) quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, (ii) quoted prices in inactive markets for identical or similar assets or liabilities or (iii) information derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

• Level 3 – Fair value based on prices or valuation techniques that require significant unobservable data inputs. Inputs would normally be a reporting entity’s own data and judgments about assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

Determining which category an asset or liability falls within the hierarchy may require significant judgment. The Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or current estimated market value. Cost is determined using the first-in, first-out method. Inventories consist primarily of hardware that will be sold to customers. The Company periodically reviews its inventories and records a provision for excess and obsolete inventories based primarily on the Company’s estimated forecast of product demand and production requirements. Once established, write-downs of inventories are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the obsolete or excess inventories.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, and are being depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets, ranging from three to five years. Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the lesser of the estimated useful lives of the assets or the related lease terms. Equipment under capital lease obligations is depreciated over the shorter of the estimated useful lives of the related assets or the term of the lease. Maintenance and routine repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Significant renewals and betterments are capitalized. At the time of retirement or other disposition of property and equipment, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in the consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.

 

Software Development Costs

 

Costs incurred to develop computer software products to be sold or otherwise marketed are charged to expense until technological feasibility of the product has been established. Once technological feasibility has been established, computer software development costs (consisting primarily of internal labor costs) are capitalized and reported at the lower of amortized cost or estimated realizable value. Purchased software development cost is recorded at its estimated fair market value. When a product is ready for general release, its capitalized costs are amortized on a product-by-product basis. The annual amortization is the greater of the amounts of:  the ratio that current gross revenues for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues for that product; and, the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life (a period of three years) of the product including the period being reported on. If the future market viability of a software product is less than anticipated, impairment of the related unamortized development costs could occur, which could significantly impact the Company’s results of operations.

 

Amortizable Intangible Assets

 

Amortizable intangible assets consist of completed software technology, customer relationships and automotive data services and are recorded at cost. Completed software technology and customer relationships are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives of 8 to 10 years, and automotive data services are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives of 20 years.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill and intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are not amortized but rather are tested at least annually for impairment.

 

F-10
 

 

Goodwill is subject to impairment reviews by applying a fair-value-based test at the reporting unit level, which generally represents operations one level below the segments reported by the Company. As of June 30, 2012, the Company does not believe there is an impairment of its goodwill. There can be no assurance, however, that market conditions will not change or demand for the Company’s products and services will continue which could result in additional impairment of goodwill in the future.

 

Goodwill activity for the years ending June 30, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

 

Balance June 30, 2010  $8,924,000 
Effect of exchange rate changes   408,000 
Balance June 30, 2011  $9,332,000 
      
Effect of exchange rate changes   (174,000)
Balance June 30, 2012  $9,158,000 

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company’s management assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets (other than goodwill discussed above) upon the occurrence of a triggering event by determining whether the carrying value of long-lived assets over their remaining lives can be recovered through projected undiscounted future cash flows over its remaining life. The amount of long-lived asset impairment, if any, is measured based on fair value and is charged to operations in the period in which long-lived asset impairment is determined by management. At June 30, 2012, management believes there is no impairment of its long-lived assets. There can be no assurance, however, that market conditions will not change or demand for the Company’s products and services will continue, which could result in impairment of long-lived assets in the future.

 

Issuance of Equity Instruments to Non-Employees

 

All issuances of the Company’s equity instruments to non-employees are measured at fair value based upon either the fair value of the equity instruments issued or the fair value of consideration received, whichever is more readily determinable. The majority of stock issuance for non-cash consideration received pertains to services rendered by consultants and others and has been valued at the fair value of the equity instruments on the dates issued.

 

The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the consultant or vendor is reached or (ii) the date at which the consultant or vendor’s performance is complete. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement.  Assets acquired in exchange for the issuance of fully vested, non-forfeitable equity instruments should not be presented or classified as an offset to equity on the grantor’s balance sheet once the equity instrument is granted for accounting purposes.  

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

For valuing stock options awards, the Company has elected to use the Black-Scholes Merton option pricing valuation model (“Black-Scholes”).  For the expected term, the Company uses a simple average of the vesting period and the contractual term of the option. Volatility is a measure of the amount by which the Company’s stock price is expected to fluctuate during the expected term of the option. For volatility the Company considers its own volatility as applicable for valuing its options and warrants.  Forfeitures are estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates. The risk-free interest rate is based on the relevant U.S. Treasury Bill Rate at the time of each grant. The dividend yield represents the dividend rate expected to be paid over the option’s expected term; the Company currently has no plans to pay dividends.

 

On June 12, 2008, the Company’s shareholders approved the Company’s 2007 Long-Term Stock Incentive Plan (“LTIP”). Stock awarded under the LTIP are accounted for in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 718-10-25-5 because the awards were unilateral grants, the recipients do not have the ability to negotiate the key terms, and the conditions of the grant, and the key terms and conditions were communicated to the individual recipients within a relatively short period of time.  Therefore the grant and measurement dates are May 13, 2008, July 1, 2008, July 1, 2009, July 1, 2010, and July 1, 2011, for each respective stock award. The maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock that may be issued under the LTIP, including stock awards and stock appreciation rights, is limited to 15% of the shares of common stock outstanding on the first trading day of any fiscal year. The Company issued restricted shares to management and board members in fiscal 2012 and 2011 and issued stock options to employees in fiscal 2012 under the LTIP  (see Note 7).

Revenue Recognition

 

Software license revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery of the product component has occurred, the fee is fixed and determinable, and collectability is probable. If any of these criteria are not met, revenue recognition is deferred until such time as all of the criteria are met.

 

The Company accounts for delivered elements in accordance with the selling price when arrangements include multiple product components or other elements and vendor-specific objective evidence exists for the value of all undelivered elements. Revenues on undelivered elements are recognized once delivery is complete.

 

 In those instances in which arrangements include significant customization, contractual milestones, acceptance criteria or other contingencies (which represents the majority of the Company’s arrangements), the Company accounts for the arrangements  using contract accounting, as follows:

 

  1) When customer acceptance can be estimated, but reliable estimated costs to complete cannot be determined, expenditures are capitalized as work-in process and deferred until completion of the contract at which time the costs and revenues are recognized.

 

  2) When customer acceptance cannot be estimated based on historical evidence, costs are expensed as incurred and revenue is recognized at the completion of the contract when customer acceptance is obtained.

 

The Company records amounts collected from customers in excess of recognizable revenue as deferred revenue in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

 

Revenues for maintenance agreements, software support, on-line services and information products are recognized ratably over the term of the service agreement.

 

Advertising Expense

 

The Company expenses advertising costs as incurred. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, advertising expense totaled $259,000 and $163,000, respectively.

 

Gain on Extinguishment of Liability for Services

 

The Company realized $215,000 and $52,000 of income from settlement with a creditor during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively, which is included in other income (expense) in the accompanying consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.

 

Foreign Currency

 

Management has determined that the functional currency of its subsidiaries is the local currency. Assets and liabilities of the U.K. subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars at the year-end exchange rates. Income and expenses are translated at an average exchange rate for the year and the resulting translation gain (loss) adjustments are accumulated as a separate component of stockholders’ equity. The translation gain adjustment totaled a loss of $369,000 and a gain of $207,000 for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Foreign currency gains and losses from transactions denominated in other than respective local currencies are included in income. The Company had no foreign currency transaction gains (loss) for all periods presented.

 

F-12
 

 

Comprehensive Income

 

Comprehensive income includes all changes in equity (net assets) during a period from non-owner sources. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the components of comprehensive income consist of foreign currency translation gains (loss).

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. Deferred taxation is provided in full in respect of timing differences between the treatment of certain items for taxation and accounting purposes. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company’s practice is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. The Company had no accrual for interest or penalties on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2012 and 2011, and has not recognized interest and/or penalties in the consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share (“BEPS”) is computed by dividing the net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year. Diluted earnings per share (“DEPS”) is computed giving effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the year. Dilutive potential common shares consist of incremental shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options and warrants using the “treasury stock” method. The computation of DEPS does not assume conversion, exercise or contingent exercise of securities that would have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings.   For the year ended June 30, 2012, there were 1,441,840, common share equivalents included in the computation of the diluted earnings per share. For the year ended June 30, 2012, a total of 777,061 common stock purchase warrants and stock options were excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.  For the year ended June 30, 2011, there were 187,203 common share equivalents included in the computation of the diluted earnings per share.  For the year ended June 30, 2011, a total of 777,061 common stock purchase warrants and stock options were excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

 

In connection with the employment agreements with the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (see Note 7), on April 27, 2012, the Board of Directors approved the issuance of 1,165,359 shares of restricted stock. The shares vest based on the market price of the Company’s common stock. The Company issued these shares to the executives and they are being held by an escrow agent and will be released to the executives when they vest.  The Company excludes these escrow shares from the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations as the market price of the Company’s common stock did not trade at or above the target stock prices per the employment agreements during the reporting period.

 

The following is a reconciliation of the numerators and denominators of the basic and diluted earnings per share computation for the years ended June 30:

 

   2012   2011 
Numerator:          
Net income  $4,096,000   $2,288,000 
           
Denominator:          
Basic weighted-average shares outstanding   13,976,810    12,295,696 
Effect of dilutive securities   276,481    187,203 
Diluted weighted-average diluted shares   14,253,291    12,482,899 
Basic earnings per common share  $0.29   $0.19 
Diluted earnings  per common share  $0.29   $0.18

Derivative Liabilities

 

For purposes of determining whether certain instruments are derivatives for accounting treatment, the Company follows the accounting standard that provides guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument, or embedded feature, is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The standard applies to any freestanding financial instruments or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own common stock. 

 

The Company has certain common stock purchase warrants that are accounted for as derivative liabilities as they do not meet the requirements to be treated as equity instruments. 

 

The fair value of these common stock purchase warrants was $442,000 on June 30, 2012.  The fair value of these common stock purchase warrants was $672,000 on June 30, 2011.  The total value of these derivative liabilities decreased for the year ended June 30, 2012, and as a result, the Company recognized a gain of approximately $230,000 from the change in fair value of these warrants for the year ended June 30, 2012 and recognized a loss of approximately $381,000 from the change in fair value of these warrants for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

On December 2, 2010 the Company accounted for all unexercised stock purchase warrants as derivative liabilities because if all outstanding options and warrants were exercised there would be insufficient authorized shares to fulfill the request.  As of that date, additional paid-in capital was reduced by $338,000 and derivative liabilities were increased by $338,000. 

 

On January 21, 2011, 3,563 warrants exercisable at $0.80 were exercised using the cashless exercise provision of the warrant agreement. The average closing price for the prior five days was $1.60 and 1,782 shares of common stock were issued. As a result of this exercise, $4,994 was reclassified to additional paid-in capital from derivative liabilities.

 

On February 11, 2011, 3,563 warrants were exercised for $2,850 and $5,318 was reclassified to additional paid-in capital from derivative liabilities. The fair value of the remaining unexercised warrants was $262,000 as of March 25, 2011, and the Company recorded a gain of $65,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011 in connection with the change in fair value of these warrants.

 

Effective March 25, 2011, the Company completed a reverse/forward stock split and reduced the number of shares outstanding from approximately 139,150,000 to 13,915,000 and no longer accounted for unexercised stock purchase warrants as derivative liabilities. The Company had sufficient authorized shares available for the exercise of all outstanding options and stock purchase warrants. As of March 25, 2011, additional paid-in capital was increased by $262,000 and derivative liabilities were reduced by $262,000.

 

All future changes in the fair value of the Company’s warrants that are still accounted for as derivatives and will be recognized in earnings until such time as the warrants are exercised or expire. These common stock purchase warrants do not trade in an active securities market, and as such, the Company estimates the fair value of these warrants using Black-Scholes and the following assumptions:

 

   June 30,   June 30, 
   2012   2011 
Annual dividend yield   0.0%   0.0%
Expected life (years)   1.5 -2.25    0.17 -4.00 
Risk-free interest rate   0.25%– 0.33%    0.16%– 1.79% 
Expected volatility   28% - 91%    87% - 151% 

 

Expected volatility is based primarily on historical volatility. Historical volatility was computed using weekly pricing observations for recent periods. The Company believes this method produces an estimate that is representative of the Company’s expectations of future volatility over the expected term of these warrants. The Company currently has no reason to believe future volatility over the expected remaining life of these warrants is likely to differ materially from historical volatility.  The expected life is based on the remaining contractual term of the warrants. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury rate that corresponds to the expected term of the warrants.

Liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized as follows:

 

June 30, 2012  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Derivative liability related to fair value of warrants  $-   $-   $442,000   $442,000 

 

June 30, 2011  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Derivative liability related to fair value of warrants  $-   $-   $672,000   $672,000 

 

The following table details the approximate fair value measurements within the fair value hierarchy of the Company’s derivative liabilities using Level 3 Inputs:

 

Balance as of  July 1, 2010  $291,000 
Warrants reclassified from additional paid-in capital  to derivative liabilities   338,000 
Warrants reclassified from derivative liabilities to additional paid-in capital   (272,000)
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities   315,000 
Balance as of June 30, 2011   672,000 
      
Change in fair value of derivative liabilities   (230,000)
Balance as of June 30, 2012  $442,000 

 

The Company has no assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued guidance on the presentation of comprehensive income. The new guidance eliminates the current option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of stockholders’ equity. Instead, an entity will be required to present either a continuous statement of income and other comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The new guidance will be effective for the Company beginning July 1, 2012 and will have presentation changes only.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued an accounting standard update that amends the accounting guidance on goodwill impairment testing. The amendments in this accounting standard update are intended to reduce complexity and costs by allowing an entity the option to make a qualitative evaluation about the likelihood of goodwill impairment to determine whether it should calculate the fair value of a reporting unit. The amendments also improve previous guidance by expanding upon the examples of events and circumstances that an entity should consider between annual impairment tests in determining whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. The amendments in this accounting standard update are effective for interim and annual goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this accounting standard update will not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, as it is intended to simplify the assessment for goodwill impairment.

HSBC Bank plc.

 

On October 25, 2010, MAM Ltd., entered into a three-year term loan agreement with HSBC Bank plc. (“HSBC”) as lender (the “HSBC Term Loan”). The HSBC Term Loan provides for £1,324,550 (approximately $2.0 million at the exchange rate on October 25, 2010) with a term of three years from the date the HSBC Term Loan is first drawn down. The HSBC Term Loan is repayable in thirty-six (36) monthly installments, inclusive of interest, together with such sums in the final month to discharge the balance of the HSBC Term Loan. The proceeds of the HSBC Term Loan were used to fully repay the residual balance of the credit facility due to ComVest Capital LLC (“ComVest”) from the Company (see below).

 

The interest rate under the HSBC Term Loan is 2.9% per annum over HSBC’s Sterling Base Rate, as published from time to time, which totals 3.4% at June 30, 2012. A prepayment fee of 1.5% of the amount prepaid will be payable by the Company in the event of the HSBC Term Loan being refinanced to another lender.

 

The HSBC Term Loan is secured by the following instruments: a guarantee granted by the Company, ASNA and MAM Software Inc. in favor of HSBC pursuant to which each would guarantee the repayment of the HSBC Term Loan (the “Guarantee”); an all assets debenture granted by MAM Ltd. in favor of HSBC including a first fixed charge over book debts and stock, which would create fixed and floating the charges over the assets and undertaking of MAM Ltd. for the provision of the HSBC Term Loan (“Debenture”); and a mortgage of the life insurance policies in favor of MAM Ltd. in relation to a Company  employee and the Company’s CEO. The Company recorded debt issuance fees of $60,000 related to the HSBC Term Loan, which is being amortized over the life of the loan. Amortization expense was $25,000 and $24,000, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The HSBC Term Loan contains various financial covenants. As of June 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all such covenants.

 

ComVest Capital LLC Loan Agreement

 

On October 26, 2010, the Company repaid in full the ComVest Revolving Credit and Term Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) from the proceeds from the HSBC Term Loan.

 

On December 21, 2007, the Company entered into a Loan Agreement with ComVest Capital LLC (“ComVest”), as lender, pursuant to which ComVest agreed to extend a $1,000,000 secured revolving Credit Facility and a $5,000,000 Term Loan.

 

The Company incurred certain fees in connection with the Loan Agreement with ComVest. The debt issuance costs of $478,000 were recorded on the date of the agreement as deferred costs and were amortized and charged to interest expense over the term of the loan using the effective interest method. The debt issuance costs were fully amortized as of December 31, 2010. Amortization of the debt issuance costs was $7,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. In connection with the embedded conversion feature of the ComVest Loan Agreement and certain warrants issued to ComVest, which were accounted as derivative instruments, the Company recorded a debt discount as a reduction in the carrying value of the debt. The debt discount was amortized and charged to interest expense over the term of the loan using the effective interest method and was fully amortized as of December 31, 2010. Amortization of the debt discount was $71,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

Secured Notes

 

The Company has secured notes totaling $97,000 payable over 27 months with monthly payments of $6,430 which will mature through 2014.  The notes bear interest rates of 5.49% to 9.54% and are secured by equipment with a net carrying value of $277,000 and $319,000 as of June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively.

NOTE 6. INCOME TAXES

 

The Company is subject to taxation in the U.S., U.K. and various U.S. state jurisdictions. The Company’s tax years for 1993 and forward are subject to examination by the U.S. and state tax authorities due to the carry forward of unutilized net operating losses.  

 

At June 30, 2012, the Company had net U.S. deferred tax assets of approximately $9,942,000. Due to uncertainties surrounding the Company’s ability to generate future U.S. taxable income to realize these assets, a full valuation allowance has been established to offset carry-forwards of not only the net operating losses (“NOLs”), but also its capital losses due to investments previously written off. Additionally, the future utilization of the Company’s federal and state NOLs to offset future taxable income have been determined to be subject to an annual limitation pursuant to Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Sections 382 and 383 as a result of ownership changes that have previously occurred.

 

During the year ended June 30, 2010, the Company estimated the amount of NOLs that would be allowed, which resulted in an increase of $9.3 million and a corresponding increase in the valuation allowance based on it being deemed more likely than not that there would not be sufficient taxable income in future periods to offset these NOLs.

 

Through its Section 382 study, the Company has analyzed any NOLs from its acquired subsidiaries to determine the maximum potential future tax benefit that might be available, and the corresponding limitation imposed based on IRC Section 382. As a result, by the year ended June 30, 2011, the Company adjusted the aforementioned net operating losses previously estimated. The outcome resulted in a determination that it could utilize, annually, approximately $560,000 of previously incurred NOLs; presuming, however, there is taxable income in future periods affording utilization prior to expiration.   Due to the recognition of a full valuation allowance against these NOLs, future changes in the Company’s unrecognized tax benefits will not impact the Company’s tax provision.

 

At June 30, 2012, the Company had combined federal and state NOLs of approximately $20.6 million. The federal NOLs expire at various dates through 2031 unless utilized prior to expiration. At June 30, 2012, the Company no longer had NOLs in its U.K. tax jurisdiction.

 

Finally, the change in the valuation allowance is primarily attributable to the change in deferred tax assets related to NOLs, as capital loss carry-forwards have not changed year to year.

 

The provision (benefit) for income taxes consists of the following for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011:

The provision for income taxes for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 differs from the amount computed by applying the U.S. federal income tax rates to net income from continuing operations before taxes as a result of the following:

 

   June 30, 
   2012   2011 
Taxes at federal statutory rates  $1,716,000   $1,085,000 
State taxes, net of federal benefit   5,000    125,000 
           
Adjustment to reserves and accruals   -    (376,000)
Other, net   24,000    (46,000)
Differential in U.K. corporate tax rate   (487,000)   (286,000)
Change in valuation allowance -federal   (308,000)   403,000 
Total adjustments   (766,000)   (180,000)
Provision for income taxes  $950,000   $905,000 

 

A provision has not been made at June 30, 2012 and 2011, for U.S. or additional foreign withholding taxes on undistributed earnings of its U.K. subsidiaries because it is the present intention of management to reinvest the undistributed earnings indefinitely in foreign operations. Generally, such earnings become subject to U.S. tax upon the remittance of dividends and under certain other circumstances. It is not practicable to estimate the amount of deferred tax liability on such undistributed earnings.

Indemnities and Guarantees

 

The Company has made certain indemnities and guarantees, under which it may be required to make payments to a guaranteed or indemnified party, in relation to certain actions or transactions. The Company indemnifies its directors, officers, employees and agents, as permitted under the laws of the State of Delaware. In connection with its facility leases, the Company has indemnified its lessors for certain claims arising from the use of the facilities. In connection with its customers’ contracts the Company indemnifies the customer that the software provided does not violate any U.S. patent. The duration of the guarantees and indemnities varies, and is generally tied to the life of the agreement. These guarantees and indemnities do not provide for any limitation of the maximum potential future payments the Company could be obligated to make. Historically, the Company has not been obligated nor incurred any payments for these obligations and, therefore, no liabilities have been recorded for these indemnities and guarantees in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
