With the recent introduction of the clouDevice™ and penveu™ product lines, the Company also now provides desktop virtualization and embedded computer vision technology solutions, targeted at the enterprise and education technology markets.  The Company, founded in 1974, is headquartered in Plano, Texas, with manufacturing facilities in Carrollton, Texas, and sales offices throughout the Americas and Europe.  See Note 10 for information regarding the Company’s revenues related to North America and foreign regions.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Interphase Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiaries.  All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. While the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited, they have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. In the opinion of the Company, all material adjustments and disclosures necessary to fairly present the results of such periods have been made.  All such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature.  Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012.  These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2011.

NOTE 2.  - STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

Stock Options: During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company issued 67,000 stock options that vest over a one to four year period and expire ten years from date of grant.  The weighted average exercise price of these stock options is $4.80.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company issued 204,500 stock options that vest over a three to four year period and expire ten years from the date of grant. The weighted average exercise price of these stock options is $1.83.  Compensation expense related to these stock options was approximately $73,000 and $24,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company also issued 448,000 stock options with performance-based vesting conditions for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, the achievement of which would result in pro rata vesting per year in February 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016, respectively. The weighted average exercise price of these stock options is $4.76.  During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company issued no stock options with performance-based vesting conditions.  All stock options with performance-based conditions expire ten years from date of grant.  Of the stock options outstanding at March 31, 2012, 680,300 are subject to the achievement of certain performance conditions.  The performance conditions related to approximately 14,000 of these stock options were deemed probable as of March 31, 2012.  Compensation expense related to performance-based stock options, for which vesting was deemed probable, was approximately $45,000 and $11,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The performance conditions related to the remaining options were not deemed probable at March 31, 2012; therefore no compensation expense related to these options has been recorded.

The weighted-average remaining contractual life of stock options outstanding and exercisable at March 31, 2012 and 2011 is 3.07 years and 1.64 years, respectively.

Restricted Stock: The Interphase Corporation 2004 Long-Term Stock Incentive Plan provides for grants of bonus stock awards (“restricted stock”) to its directors and certain employees at no cost to the recipient.  Holders of restricted stock are entitled to cash dividends, if declared, and to vote their respective shares.  Restrictions limit the sale or transfer of these shares during a predefined vesting period, currently ranging from three to six years, and in some cases vesting is subject to the achievement of certain performance conditions. There were no shares of restricted stock issued during the three months ended March 31, 2012 or 2011.  Upon issuance of restricted stock under the plan, unearned compensation equivalent to the market value at the date of grant is recorded as a reduction to shareholders’ equity and subsequently amortized to expense over the respective restriction periods.  Compensation expense related to restricted stock was approximately $33,000 and $56,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  As of March 31, 2012, there was approximately $316,000 of total unamortized compensation cost related to unvested restricted stock remaining to be recognized. The expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.7 years.  As of December 31, 2011, there was approximately $479,000 of total unamortized compensation cost related to unvested restricted stock which was expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 3.0 years.  The following table summarizes the restricted stock activity for the first quarter of 2012:

NOTE 3.  -  MARKETABLE SECURITIES

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  The Company follows ASC 820 in its valuation of its marketable securities.  ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 classifies the levels used to measure fair value into the following hierarchy:

Level 1 – Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to obtain at the measurement date.  This level provides the most reliable evidence of fair value.
Level 2 – Valuations based on one or more quoted prices in markets that are not active; quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; inputs that are observable other than quoted prices for the asset or the liability; or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
Level 3 – Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement.

The Company’s investments in marketable securities primarily consist of investments in debt securities, which are classified as available for sale and presented as current assets on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Earnings from debt securities are calculated on a yield to maturity basis and recorded in the results of operations. Unrealized gains or losses for the periods presented were included in other comprehensive loss. Realized gains and losses are computed based on the specific identification method and were not material for the periods presented. Marketable securities are used to secure the Company’s credit facility.  The fair values of our marketable securities were estimated using the market approach.

Financial assets, measured at fair value, by level within the fair value hierarchy were as follows (in thousands):

Valuing inventory at the lower of cost or market involves an inherent level of risk and uncertainty due to technology trends in the industry and customer demand for the Company’s products.  Future events may cause significant fluctuations in the Company’s operating results.  Inventories are written down when needed to ensure the Company carries inventory at the lower of cost or market.  Writedowns during the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $25,000.  There were no writedowns during the three months ended March 31, 2011.

NOTE 5.  -  INCOME TAXES

The Company records a valuation allowance when it is “more likely than not” that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset will not be realized.  Management reviews all available positive and negative evidence, including the Company’s current and past performance, the market environment in which the Company operates, the utilization of past tax credits, length of carry back and carry forward periods, existing contracts or sales backlog that will result in future profits, as well as other factors.  The Company continues to maintain a valuation allowance on all of the net deferred tax assets for the periods presented.  Until an appropriate level of profitability is sustained, the Company expects to continue to record a full valuation allowance on future tax benefits except for those that may be generated in foreign jurisdictions.  The effective income tax rates for the periods presented differ from the U.S. statutory rate as we continue to provide a full valuation allowance for our net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 and 2011.  

NOTE 6.  -  RESTRUCTURING CHARGE

On September 30, 2010, the Company initiated a restructuring plan to mitigate gross margin erosion by reducing manufacturing and procurement costs, streamline research and development expense and focus remaining resources on key strategic growth areas, and reduce selling and administrative expenses through product rationalization and consolidation of support functions.  Under the 2010 restructuring plan, the Company reduced its worldwide work force by 39 employees, including the closure of its European engineering and support center located in Chaville, France.  As a result of the 2010 restructuring plan, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of approximately $3.3 million, classified as an operating expense, in the third quarter of 2010 related to future cash expenditures to cover employee severance and benefits and other related costs.  Cash payments, net of currency translation adjustments, during the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $1.0 million.  The remaining liability as of March 31, 2011 was approximately $170,000.  These amounts were paid out under the restructuring plan by the end of 2011.

NOTE 7.  -  CREDIT FACILITY

The Company maintains a $5.0 million revolving bank credit facility maturing December 19, 2013.  The applicable interest rate on outstanding balances is LIBOR plus 1.0% to 1.5% based on certain factors included in the credit agreement.  At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company’s interest rate on the $3.5 million outstanding balance was 2.1% and 1.8%, respectively. The unused portion of the credit facility is subject to an unused facility fee ranging from .25% to .75% depending on total deposits with the creditor.  All borrowings under this facility are secured by marketable securities.  The outstanding balance of $3.5 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 is classified as long-term debt on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.  Subsequent to March 31, 2012 and prior to the Company’s filing of the condensed consolidated financial statements, the outstanding balance on the credit facility was repaid.

NOTE 9.  -  SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

The Board of Directors adopted a Shareholder Rights Plan (the “Plan”) and, under the Plan, declared a non-taxable dividend, paid at the close of business on August 9, 2011 (the “Record Date”), of one common share purchase right (a “Right”) for each outstanding share of Common Stock.  From the Record Date until the Rights become exercisable, the Rights will be attached to all outstanding shares of Common Stock and, therefore, will be represented by the certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock and transferrable only with the shares of Common Stock.  A Right will be exercisable, upon certain conditions, to purchase one share of Common Stock from the Company at a price of $39, subject to adjustment.  The Rights will become exercisable, and separate from the shares of Common Stock, upon the earlier of:

(1)
ten business days following the date of the first public announcement (the “Stock Acquisition Date”) that a person or a group of affiliated or associated persons has acquired, or obtained the right to acquire, beneficial ownership of 15% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (an “Acquiring Person”), or
 
(2)
ten business days (or such later date as the Board of Directors may determine) following the commencement of a tender or exchange offer that, if consummated, would result in a person or group of persons becoming an Acquiring Person.
 
Upon a Stock Acquisition Date, each holder of a Right (other than an Acquiring Person) will be entitled to receive, upon exercise of the Right, shares of Common Stock at a 50% discount.  Also, if, at any time following a Stock Acquisition Date, the Company is acquired in a merger or business combination and its Common Stock is exchanged or converted, or if 50% or more of the Company’s assets, cash flow or earning power is sold or transferred, then each holder of a Right (other than an Acquiring Person) will be entitled to receive, upon exercise of the Right, shares of the acquirer’s common stock at a 50% discount.  Further, at any time after a person or group of persons becomes an Acquiring Person, but before any person or group of persons becomes the beneficial owner of 50% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Company may cause each exercisable Right to be exchanged for one share of Common Stock.  The Rights will expire at the close of business on July 29, 2021, or such other date as the Board of Directors may determine under certain circumstances.  The Board of Directors may terminate the Plan or cause the Company to redeem the Rights, at a price of $0.001 per Right, at any time before the earlier of a Stock Acquisition Date or the expiration of the Rights.  The Company has reserved 90,315,210 shares of Common Stock for possible issuance upon exercise of Rights under the Plan.

Item 2.    MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and other material included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This report contains forward-looking statements about the business, financial condition and prospects of the Company.  These statements are made under the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  The actual results of the Company could differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements because of various risks and uncertainties, including (without limitation) effects of the ongoing issues in global credit and financial markets, our reliance on a limited number of customers, the lack of spending improvements in the telecommunications and computer networking industries, significant changes in product demand, the development and introduction of new products and services, changes in competition, various inventory risks due to changes in market conditions and other risks and uncertainties indicated in the Company’s filings and reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  All of the foregoing risks and uncertainties are beyond the ability of the Company to control, and in many cases, the Company cannot predict the risks and uncertainties that could cause its actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements.  When used in this report, the words “believes”, “plans”, “expects”, “will”, “intends,” and “anticipates” and similar expressions as they relate to the Company or its management are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Revenue

Total revenue decreased 40% to $4.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $6.7 million for the same period in the prior year.  Our telecommunications product revenue decreased to $3.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $5.5 million in the comparable period in the prior year.  This decrease was primarily driven by two equal factors.  First, the slowdown in telecommunications equipment spending worldwide has had a negative impact on our major customers and has impacted their purchase volume from us.  Second, we experienced significantly reduced sales of a product where the primary customer has delayed, until the second half of 2012, the launch of their product.  Our services revenues increased to $781,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $365,000 for the same period in the previous year, because of increased electronic engineering design services and, to a lesser degree, increases in electronic contract manufacturing services.  As expected, our enterprise product revenue decreased to $103,000 for the first quarter of 2012 compared to $840,000 for the same period in the previous year because the major customer roll-out driving this product line has been completed.  All other revenues were flat at $23,000, compared to $24,000 in the comparable period last year.

During the first quarter of 2012, sales to two customers individually accounted for approximately 37% and 16% of total revenues, respectively.  During the first quarter of 2011, sales to three customers individually accounted for approximately 31%, 23%, and 13% of total revenues, respectively.  No other customers individually accounted for more than 10% of our consolidated revenues in the periods presented.

Included in accounts receivable at March 31, 2012 was $1.3 million and $663,000 due from Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks, respectively.  Included in accounts receivable at December 31, 2011 was approximately $786,000 and $734,000, due from Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks, respectively.  No other customers individually accounted for more than 10% of our accounts receivable in the periods presented.

Gross Margin

Gross margin as a percentage of revenue was 46% and 49% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The decrease in gross margin percentage in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to decreased utilization of our manufacturing facility, partially offset by a shift in product mix toward higher margin products and services.  We believe that pricing pressures in the industry and our anticipated future product mix may further reduce our gross margin percentage in future periods.

 
13

 
 
Research and Development

Our investment in the development of new products through research and development was $932,000 for the first quarter of 2012 compared to $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2011. During the quarter, there was an increase in professional services activity, specifically electronic engineering design services, which resulted in an increase in services revenues.  Engineering costs associated with these activities generate revenue; the related expenses are recorded as cost of sales rather than research and development operating expenses thus causing the primary decrease in research and development expenses during the quarter.

As a percentage of revenue, research and development expenses were approximately 23% in the first quarter of 2012 compared to approximately 15% for the same period in the prior year.  The increase in research and development expenses as a percentage of total revenue was due to revenue decreasing at a higher rate than research and development expenses.  We will continue to monitor the level of our investments in research and development concurrently with actual revenue results.

Sales and Marketing

Sales and marketing expenses were $914,000 and $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The decrease in sales and marketing expense was primarily due a decrease in headcount related expenses, partially offset by an increase in marketing activities related to the launch of our new product, penveu™.  As a percentage of revenue, sales and marketing expenses were approximately 23% in the first quarter of 2012, compared to approximately 15% for the same period in the prior year.  The increase in sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of total revenue was due to revenue decreasing at a higher rate than sales and marketing expenses.  We will continue to monitor the level of sales and marketing costs concurrently with actual revenue results.

General and Administrative

General and administrative expenses were $940,000 and $985,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to a decrease in variable compensation expense, partially offset by an increase in legal services expense.  As a percentage of revenue, general and administrative expenses were approximately 23% in the first quarter 2012 and 15% for the same period in the prior year.  The increase in general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenue was due to revenue decreasing at a higher rate than general and administrative expenses. We will continue to monitor the level of general and administrative costs concurrently with actual revenue results.

Interest Income, Net

Interest income, net of interest expense, increased to $9,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $3,000 in the comparable period in the prior year.  

Other (Loss) Income, Net

Other loss, net was $5,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  Other income, net was $5,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  

Income Taxes

Our tax benefit rate was 0.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to a tax expense rate of 3.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The effective income tax rates for the periods presented differ from the U.S. statutory rate as we continue to provide a full valuation allowance for our net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011.  The tax benefit and tax expense in the periods presented primarily relates to tax in a foreign jurisdiction.  

 
14

 

Net (Loss) Income

We reported a net loss of $929,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and net income of $231,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  Basic loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was ($0.13).  Basic and diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $0.03.

Recently Announced Product

On April 18, 2012 we announced the debut of penveuTM.  penveu is a handheld device that enhances the functionality of installed projectors and large screen displays; making any flat surface, from pull down screens to HDTVs, an interactive display system.  Using embedded computer vision technology, penveu works with any device with a VGA connection and requires no software or driver installation, no particular operating system, and no periodic calibration.  penveu is targeted at the education and enterprise markets.  An independent source estimates the interactive whiteboard market to grow to approximately $1.8 billion in revenue in 2012.  However, penveu also has the unique ability to turn the estimated over 80 million projectors and 10 million large screen displays that are currently installed worldwide into interactive display devices.  The retail price of penveu will be less than 25% of the average price of a typical interactive whiteboard and, unlike an interactive whiteboard, penveu will not require the time and expense of installation.  We anticipate that penveu, which will be offered and sold through our website, other on-line retailers, and catalogs, will first be available in July 2012.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Consolidated Cash Flows

Cash and cash equivalents decreased approximately $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  Cash and cash equivalents increased approximately $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

Operating Activities

Trends in cash flows from operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 are generally similar to the trends in our earnings except for the (recovery of)/provision for uncollectible accounts and returns, provision for excess and obsolete inventories, depreciation and amortization and amortization of stock-based compensation.  Cash used in operating activities totaled $1.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to net loss of $929,000.  Provision for uncollectible accounts and returns decreased $20,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 primarily due to the lower accounts receivable balance.  Provision for excess and obsolete inventories increased $25,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. Depreciation and amortization decreased $10,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011.  Amortization of stock-based compensation increased $60,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 primarily due to stock options issued during the first quarter of 2012. See Note 2 in the notes to condensed consolidated financial statements for more information on stock-based compensation.

Changes in assets and liabilities result primarily from the timing of production, sales, purchases and payments.  Such changes in assets and liabilities generally tend to even out over time and result in trends in cash flows from operating activities generally reflecting earnings trends.

Investing Activities

Cash used in investing activities totaled approximately $202,000 and cash provided by investing activities totaled $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Cash used in or provided by investing activities in each of the periods related principally to our investments in marketable securities, offset by additions to property and equipment and capitalized software purchases.  Additions to property and equipment and capitalized software were $126,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $59,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The additions for the three months ended March 31, 2012 primarily related to software and equipment purchases for our newly announced product, penveu™, and equipment purchases for our manufacturing function.  The additions for the three months ended March 31, 2011 primarily related to equipment purchases for our manufacturing, engineering and administrative functions.  Purchases of marketable securities were $2.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. There were no purchases of marketable securities for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  Proceeds from the sale of marketable securities decreased to $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 
15

 
 
Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities totaled $508,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, consisting solely of proceeds from the exercise of stock options.  Net cash provided by financing activities totaled $442,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, also consisting solely of proceeds from the exercise of stock options.

Restructuring Charge

On September 30, 2010, we initiated a restructuring plan to mitigate gross margin erosion by reducing manufacturing and procurement costs, streamline research and development expense and focus remaining resources on key strategic growth areas, and reduce selling and administrative expenses through product rationalization and consolidation of support functions.  Under the 2010 restructuring plan, we reduced our worldwide work force by 39 employees, including the closure of our European engineering and support center located in Chaville, France.  As a result of the 2010 restructuring plan, we recorded a restructuring charge of approximately $3.3 million classified as an operating expense in the third quarter of 2010 related to future cash expenditures to cover employee severance and benefits and other related costs.  Cash payments, net of currency translation adjustments, during the quarter ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $1.0 million.  The remaining liability as of March 31, 2011 was approximately $170,000.  These amounts were paid out under the restructuring plan by the end of 2011.

Commitments

At March 31, 2012, we had no material commitments to purchase capital assets; however, planned capital expenditures for the remainder of 2012 are estimated at approximately $265,000, a significant portion of which relates to enhancements to our manufacturing equipment and tools.  At March 31, 2012, we had $19,000 of non-cancelable purchase commitments for product tooling as part of the normal course of business.  Our significant long-term obligations are operating leases on facilities and our phone system and future debt payments.  We have not paid any dividends since our inception and do not anticipate paying any dividends in 2012.

Other

Management believes that borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility, together with cash on hand, will be sufficient to meet our liquidity needs for working capital, capital expenditures and debt service.  To the extent that our actual operating results or other developments differ from our expectations, our liquidity could be adversely affected.

We periodically evaluate our liquidity requirements, alternative uses of capital, capital needs and available resources in view of, among other things, our capital expenditure requirements and estimated future operating cash flows.  As a result of this process, we have in the past and may in the future seek to raise additional capital, refinance or restructure indebtedness, issue additional securities, repurchase shares of our common stock or take a combination of such steps to manage our liquidity and capital resources.  In the normal course of business, we may review opportunities for acquisitions, joint ventures or other business combinations.  In the event of any such transaction, we may consider using available cash, issuing additional equity securities or increasing the indebtedness of the Company or its subsidiaries.

Critical Accounting Policies

There have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies from those disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Item 3.    QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Foreign Currency Risk

We are exposed to adverse movements in foreign currency exchange rates because we conduct business on a global basis and, in some cases, in foreign currencies.  The Company’s operations in France were transacted in the local currency and converted into U.S. Dollars based on published exchange rates for the periods reported and were therefore subject to risk of exchange rate fluctuations.  The Euro to U.S. Dollar translation accounted for charges of approximately $11,000 and $3,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  This risk was significantly reduced due to the closure of our French operations at the end of 2010.

Market Price Risk

We had no equity hedge contracts outstanding as of March 31, 2012 or December 31, 2011.

Interest Rate Risk

Our investments are subject to interest rate risk.  Interest rate risk is the risk that our financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected due to movements in interest rates.  We invest our cash in a variety of interest-earning financial instruments, including bank time deposits, money market funds, and variable rate and fixed rate obligations of corporations and national governmental entities and agencies.  Due to the demand nature of our money market funds and the short-term nature of our time deposits and debt securities portfolio, these assets are particularly sensitive to changes in interest rates.  We manage this risk through investments with shorter-term maturities and varying maturity dates.

A hypothetical 50 basis point increase in interest rates would result in an approximate decrease of less than 1% in the fair value of our available-for-sale securities at March 31, 2012.  This potential change is based on sensitivity analyses performed on our marketable securities at March 31, 2012.  Actual results may differ materially.  The same hypothetical 50 basis point increase in interest rates would have resulted in an approximate decrease of less than 1% in the fair value of our available-for-sale securities at December 31, 2011.

We maintain a $5.0 million revolving bank credit facility maturing December 19, 2013 with an applicable interest rate on any outstanding balances under the credit facility based on London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus 1.0% to 1.5% applicable margin rate based on certain factors included in our credit agreement.  The interest rate on the borrowings under the revolving credit facility was 2.1% and 1.8% at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  The unused portion of the credit facility is subject to an unused facility fee ranging from .25% to .75% depending on total deposits with the creditor.  A hypothetical 50 basis point increase in LIBOR would increase annual interest expense on this credit facility by approximately $17,500.  All borrowings under this facility are secured by marketable securities.  Subsequent to March 31, 2012 and prior to the Company’s filing of the condensed consolidated financial statements, the outstanding balance on the credit facility was repaid.

Item 4.    CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company’s management, under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based on that evaluation, the CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed, and are effective, to give reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management, including the CEO and CFO, to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure and that information is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities Exchange Commission.

 
17

 

Changes in Internal Controls

The Company maintains a system of internal controls that is designed to provide reasonable assurance that its books and records accurately reflect, in all material respects, the transactions of the Company and that its established policies and procedures are adhered to.  From time to time the Company may experience changes to its internal controls due, for example, to employee turnover, re-balancing of workloads, extended absences and promotions of employees.  However, there were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II
OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.    LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

French Restructuring Litigation:  Twenty-five former employees (“Plaintiffs”) of Interphase SAS, a subsidiary of Interphase Corporation, brought suit in France against Interphase SAS alleging various causes of action and rights to damages relating to claims of wrongful dismissal of employment, specific French employment indemnities, general economic losses, and contractual claims relating specifically to their employment relationship and contracts entered into between the individual and Interphase SAS.  The lawsuits were filed between November 2010 and April 2011 and are pending in the Labor Court of Boulogne-Billancourt, France and the Administrative Court of Cergy-Pontoise, France.  The various claims and assertions arise from, and relate to, the Plaintiffs’ release from employment as part of the restructuring actions taken during the third quarter of 2010.  See Note 6 in the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements for more information regarding the restructuring plan.  The updated statement of claim is for an aggregate payment of approximately €3.1 million, which translated to approximately $4.1 million at March 31, 2012, related to these claims.  The Company believes that the Plaintiffs’ claims are without merit and plans to vigorously defend itself in this lawsuit.

On March 22, 2012, a hearing was conducted with the Labor Court of Boulogne-Billancourt, France related to the claims of twenty-three of the twenty-five former employees.  A decision from the Court is expected on or around May 31, 2012.

Patent-infringement Litigation:  On April 7, 2011, Interphase was named as one of the defendants in a lawsuit filed by Mosaid Technologies (“Mosaid”) pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.  The complaint includes allegations that Interphase has infringed and is still infringing upon a certain registered U.S. patent to which Mosaid has enforcement rights.  The sole infringement allegation directed at Interphase appears to concern communications controller chips that Interphase purchases (indirectly) from Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. (“Freescale”), another defendant in the infringement allegation, which are used in several of Interphase’s products.

The complaint requests a judgment that Mosaid’s patents have been and are being infringed upon and, accordingly, an award of an unspecified amount of damages, plus interest and costs, as well as injunctive relief and any other remedies available under law.  Because the complaint claims the alleged infringing conduct is willful, it also requests treble damages and attorneys’ fees under the applicable U.S. patent statute.

Interphase does not know if there is any merit to Mosaid’s allegations.  Nevertheless, Interphase intends, and understands that Freescale intends, to vigorously defend the allegations; and to the extent that the infringement claim relates to the Freescale chips used in Interphase’s products, Freescale will also defend Interphase and indemnify Interphase against damages in the lawsuit.
