Plures Technologies, Inc
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

1.   Basis of Presentation, The Company and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of Plures Technologies Inc. and subsidiary (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”). In the opinion of management, these unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position at March 31, 2012, the results of operations for the three month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, and cash flows for the three month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. Although the Company believes that the disclosures in these financial statements are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, certain information normally included in the footnotes prepared in accordance with US GAAP has been omitted as permitted by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The accompanying financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC on March 30, 2012. The results for the three month period ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012, or any future period. Interim period amounts are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the full fiscal year.

 

The Company

 

Plures Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings”) was formed December 24, 2008 (date of inception) in the State of Delaware.  Holdings was an entrepreneurial start-up company based in Upstate New York.  As of May 23, 2011, Holdings, through its subsidiary Advanced MicroSensors (“AMS Corp”) develops and manufactures thin film, magnetic and MEMS devices.

 

On September 30, 2010, Holdings entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“APA”) with Advanced MicroSensors, Inc.  (“AMS Inc.” or “AMS”) to acquire substantially all of the assets and liabilities of AMS Inc. through its wholly owned subsidiary AMS Corp.

 

On May 23, 2011, Holdings executed the APA to acquire substantially all of the assets and specified liabilities of AMS Inc. The purchase price was a number of shares of authorized but previously unissued shares of common stock of AMS Corp., representing 5% of the outstanding common stock on a fully diluted basis on the closing date.  Additionally, in conjunction with the closing of the APA, Holdings note receivable with AMS Inc. in the amount of $1,650,000 was terminated and AMS Inc. was released of all obligations under the terms of the notes.

 

On May 23, 2011, Holdings entered into an agreement with CMSF Corp. (name since changed to Plures Technologies, Inc., the Company), the stock of which was traded on the OTC Bulletin Board, and several related entities, providing for the merger of Holdings with a subsidiary of the Company such that Holdings would become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. On August 10, 2011, the merger contemplated by the agreement was consummated. As a part of the transaction, Holdings, on May 23, 2011, borrowed a total of $2 million from the principal stockholders (“Lenders”) of the Company to be used to consummate the purchase by Holdings of the assets of AMS Inc., which it did on the same date.

 

On August 10, 2011 (the “Effective Time”), the Company consummated the reverse merger with Holdings as contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement the name of the Company was changed from CMSF Corp. to Plures Technologies, Inc. In addition, Holdings became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. At the Effective Time of the Merger each issued and outstanding  share of Holdings was converted into .914 shares of common stock of the Company with the stockholders of Holdings immediately receiving 85% of the Company’s common shares into which their Holdings shares were converted and the remaining 15% of the Company’s common shares (the “Holdback Shares”) issuable to the stockholders of Holdings reserved to satisfy any indemnification obligations of the stockholders of Holdings after which the balance will be issued. In addition, certain promissory notes issued by Holdings to RENN Universal and RENN Global in the aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000 were converted into 1,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock of the Company.

Plures Technologies, Inc
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

Immediately after the Merger, the former stockholders of Holdings held 72.5% of the Company’s outstanding shares including the Holdback Shares, RENN Universal and RENN Global held 20% collectively of the Company’s common stock as a result of the conversion of their $2,000,000 promissory note into Series A Preferred Stock and assuming conversion of the Preferred Stock into

common stock, and the pre-merger stockholders of the Company, including RENN Universal and RENN Global held 7.5% of the Company’s common stock.

 

Liquidity and Management Plans

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company believes that, existing cash along with additional future equity or debt financing will be adequate to support its planned level of operations. The Company cannot be certain that additional debt or equity or other funding will be available on acceptable terms, or at all. If the Company fails to obtain additional funding when needed, it may be forced to scale back, or terminate operations, or seek to merge with or be acquired by another company. Additionally, as described in Note 10, the Company relies on a major customer for approximately 87% of its revenue. Any decreases in purchase quantities or purchase prices would have a significant impact on our revenue and resultant profitability. The Company expects its general and administrative costs to increase as the Company adds personnel.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the Company and its majority owned and controlled subsidiary, AMS Corp. The Company presents all of AMS Corp’s assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, as well as the non-controlling interest in AMS Corp (representing the 5% equity interest in the entity not owned by the Company), in its consolidated financial statements. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation

 

Basis of Accounting

 

Prior to the acquisition of AMS Inc. assets and operations, Holdings had not earned any revenues and accordingly, the Company’s activities had been accounted for as those of a “Development Stage Enterprise” as set forth in FASB ASC 915 Accounting and Reporting by Development State Enterprises.  As a result of the acquisition of the assets and operations of AMS Inc., the Company is no longer in the development stage.

 

Use of estimates in the preparation of financial statements

 

The preparation of 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 disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash is held at financial institutions and includes bank demand deposit accounts and certain money market accounts.  At times account balances may exceed insured limits.  However, the Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and does not believe it is exposed to significant risk in cash and cash equivalents.

 

Restricted Cash

 

The restricted cash serves as collateral for an irrevocable standby letter of credit that provides financial assurance that the Company will fulfill its obligations with respect to certain lease obligations (Note 9). The cash is held in custody by the issuing bank, has restrictions as to withdrawal or use, and is currently invested in money market funds. Income from these investments is held in the account.  The restricted cash is classified as long term as the letter of credit expires on June 30, 2013.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

At March 31, 2012 the Company's financial instruments were comprised of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables and accounts payable and note payable.  The carrying amounts of which approximate fair market value.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company has adopted FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures”, (“ASC 820”). This topic defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under US GAAP and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined under ASC 820 as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value under ASC 820 must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The standard describes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value which are the following :

 

·Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

·Level 2 — Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

·Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value

  

A financial instrument’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

  

The Company’s liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis relate to its warrants. Accordingly, the value of the warrant is evaluated each quarter. The fair value of the warrants are determined using the Black Scholes model with the following assumptions: risk free rate 2.0%, dividend yield 0.0%, expected life of 10 years, and volatility During the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the Company increased this fair value of this liability to $136,488 from $80,357. The measurement is based upon significant inputs not observable in the market. Subsequent changes in the value of this liability will be recorded in the statement of operations.

 

The following table sets forth Company’s assets and liabilities which are measured at fair value on a recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy

 

Fair value measurements using: as of March 31, 2012

Assets  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Total 
Marketable securities (a)  $7,041   $-   $-   $7,041

(a) Included in cash and cash equivalents on the consolidated balance sheet

  

The change in the fair value of the warrant during the period is as follows:

 

Three months ended March 31, 2012,
Balance as of December 31, 2011  $80,357 
      
Mark to market   56,131 
      
Balance as of March 31, 2012  $136,488 

 

 

As noted above the Company recorded a $56,131 increase in the fair value of the warrant liability as an expense in the statement of operations during the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Plures Technologies, Inc
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

Income taxes

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities arise from temporary differences associated with differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities, as measured by the enacted tax rates which are expected to be in effect when these differences reverse.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are classified as current or noncurrent, depending on the classification of the assets and liabilities to which they relate.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or noncurrent depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse.

 

The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets since management believes that, after considering all the available objective evidence, both positive and negative, historical and prospective, with greater weight given to historical evidence, it is more likely than not that the net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 will not be realized.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Costs are determined using the first-in, first-out method.

 

Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at cost. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, as follows:

 

Category  Useful Life
in Years
 
      
Manufacturing equipment   10 
Computer software and equipment   3 

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when (i) an evidence of arrangement exists, (ii) delivery has occurred, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue from the sale of products and prototypes is recognized upon delivery, or upon customer acceptance for transactions where customer acceptance is stipulated and when all other revenue recognition criteria have been met. Revenue from engineering development services is recognized when services are performed and when all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of

 

The Company reviews the valuation of long-lived assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. When it is determined that the carrying value of applicable long-lived assets may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more indicators, the

Company must evaluate whether the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the sum the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of that asset. The impairment would be measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the particular long-lived assets exceeds its fair value. The fair value would be determined based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent in the current business model or through an independent appraisal of individual assets.

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses include expenses which were incurred in the development of new products and new or improved technologies that enhance the production processes. Costs for product development are expensed as incurred. The Company incurred no research and development expense for the three months ending March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company maintains stock-based incentive plans, under which it provides stock incentives to employees, directors and contractors. The Company grants to employees, directors and contractors, restricted stock and/or options to purchase common stock at an option price equal to the market value of the stock at the date of grant. The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation” (“ASC 718”), for all stock-based compensation. Under this application, the Company is required to record compensation expense over the vesting period for all awards granted.

 

Net Loss per Common Share

 

The Company’s basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period and, if there are dilutive securities, diluted loss per share is computed by including common stock equivalents which includes shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options, net of shares assumed to have been purchased with the proceeds, using the treasury stock method.

 

Basic and Diluted loss per share were the same for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as there were no adjustments to the net loss and there were no common stock equivalents.  Basic and Diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March  31, 2012 used the same numerator as there were no adjustments to the net income.

 

A summary of the Company’s calculation of net income (loss) per share is as follows;

 

 

   March 31, 2012   March 31, 2011 
           
Net income (loss) available to common shareholders  $11,364   $(68,685)
           
Basic shares used in the calculation of earnings per share   4,418,793    4,041,834 
           
Effect of dilutive securities:          
Restricted stock   13,071    - 
Escrow shares   691,373    - 
Convertible preferred stock   1,682,264    - 
           
Diluted shares used in the calculation of earnings per share   6,805,501    4,041,834 
           
Net income (loss) per share :          
Basic  $0.00   $(0.02)
Diluted  $0.00   $(0.02)

 

 

11

Plures Technologies, Inc
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

The calculation of basic net income (loss) per share for three months ending March 31, 2012 and 2011 does not include 34,000 and 0 shares, respectively, of restricted common stock issued to board members, executive officers and employees of the Company as they are subject to time-based vesting. These potential shares were excluded from the computation of basic loss per share as these shares are not considered outstanding until vested.

 

The calculation of diluted net income (loss) per share for the three months ending March 31, 2012 and 2011 does not includes 59,524 and 0 shares, respectively, of common stock warrants because such shares are antidilutive.

In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04, “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards” (Topic 820)—Fair Value Measurement (ASU 2011-04), to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. ASU 2011-04 changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements particularly for level 3 fair value measurements. ASU 2011-04 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”). ASU 2011-05 increases the prominence of other comprehensive income in financial statements. Under ASU 2011-05, companies will have the option to present the components of net income and comprehensive income in either one or two consecutive financial statements. ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option to present other comprehensive income in the statement of changes in equity and is applied retrospectively. For public companies, ASU 2011-05 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-12: Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05 ("ASU 2011-12"). The Update defers the specific requirement to present items that are reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income to net income separately with their respective components of net income and other comprehensive income. As part of this update, the FASB did not defer the requirement to report comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement or in two separate but consecutive financial statements. ASU 2011-12 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2011-5, “Comprehensive Income” and ASU 2011-12, “Comprehensive Income” require entities to elect the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single, continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments in this update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. The ASU is effective prospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

ASU 2011-04, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” requires expanded disclosure of certain fair value measurements categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The ASU is effective prospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

4.   Business combination

 

On May 23, 2011, the Company executed an APA to acquire substantially all of the assets and specified liabilities of AMS Inc. The purchase price was a number of shares of authorized but unissued shares of common stock of the company, representing 5% of the outstanding common stock on a fully diluted basis on the closing date.  Additionally, in conjunction with the closing of the APA, the Company’s note receivable with AMS Inc. in the amount of $1,650,000 was terminated and AMS Inc. was released of all obligations under the terms of the notes.

 

The Company assessed the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets that were acquired from AMS Inc., for the purpose of purchase price allocation. The Company’s management determined fair value with assistance from its outside consultants and used fair value methodologies in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles to arrive at the fair value of both tangible and intangible assets. The fair values of the assets were significantly higher than the purchase price for the assets of AMS Inc., which were the primary factors resulting in the recording of a gain on the purchase.

 

In regard to tangible assets, the Company considered the fact that the fair value of the acquired assets greatly exceeded their nominal carrying value and concluded that the carrying value of the assets was not indicative of the fair value of these assets. The primary factor leading to this conclusion was the current price of equipment of similar type and condition, which became the basis for the values assigned to the assets acquired. Additionally, these tangible assets have been properly maintained and are expected to have a useful life that will extend another 10 years. While the carrying value at the time of acquisition was nearly $0, the fair value was determined to be approximately $1.9 million. These assets will be a significant contributor to manufacturing the Company’s product for many years in the future.

The valuation of the intangible assets was based on methodologies that relied upon forward looking forecasts that considered all known information at that time, the most significant assumption being the revenue growth of the Company, primarily in the magnetic sensor business.

 

AMS Inc. past financial losses were a result of the declining legacy tape head business. During 2010 production began on magnetic sensors and sales from this product have grown each quarter since. Future revenue growth, and therefore, AMS profitability, is based in part on this new market area. These assumptions were used in the valuation of intangible assets in purchase accounting of approximately $1.9 million that did not exist on the balance sheet of AMS prior to the acquisition.

 

The allocation of the purchase price and the purchase price accounting is based on the fair value of the acquired assets and liabilities measured as of May 23, 2011 in accordance with ASC Topic 805, Business Combinations.

 

Fair value of shares of common stock issued to AMS  $385,000 
Advances to AMS including interest (obligation to repay released at closing of merger)   1,707,326 
      
Total consideration  $2,092,326 
      
Estimated Allocation of Purchase Price:     
Cash and cash equivalents  $180,436 
Accounts receivable   332,568 
Inventories   414,038 
Prepaid expenses and other   54,285 
Equipment   1,923,650 
Intangible assets   1,881,000 
Accounts payable   (538,628)
Accrued expenses   (100,433)
Deferred rent and other   (402,067)
Gain on bargain purchase   (1,652,523)
      
   $2,092,326 

  

The gain related to the acquisition of AMS Inc. assets and liabilities in the amount $1,652,523 was recorded in other income in the statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

The fair value of the shares issued in the AMS acquisition was based on the enterprise value of AMS.  Using an income approach the Company first determined the fair value of AMS as a whole and then attributed 5% of this value as the estimated fair value of the shares issued to AMS Inc. In connection with the acquisition of AMS Inc, the Company incurred acquisition related costs totaling approximately $68,400 which were expensed as incurred. Included in expenses for years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 were acquisition related expenses amounting to approximately $28,000 and $40,400 respectively of which acquisition expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 were approximately $0 and $8,100 , respectively.

 

The following presents the pro forma net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 for the Company’s acquisition of AMS Inc. assuming the acquisition occurred as of January 1, 2011. The pro forma results are unaudited and are derived from the historical financial results of the acquired business for the periods presented and are not necessarily indicative of the results that would have occurred had the acquisition been consummated on January 1, 2011.

 6.   Income Taxes

 

The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets since management believes that, after considering all the available objective evidence, both positive and negative, historical and prospective, with greater weight given to historical evidence, it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 will not be realized.

 

At March 31, 2012 the Company has available net operating loss carryforwards for federal and state income tax purposes of approximately $9.2 million and $3.3 million, respectively, which may be used to offset future taxable income, subject to the limits discussed below. The transaction for the AMS Inc. acquisition most closely resembles a Type C reorganization under IRC Section 368 (a1C). In a Type C reorganization one corporation acquires nearly all properties of another corporation in exchange solely for all or a part of its’ own or its’ controlling parent’s voting stock followed by the acquired corporation’s distribution of all its’ properties pursuant to the plan of reorganization. This type of transaction qualifies as a non-taxable transaction under IRC Section 368 (a1C). These carryforwards are subject to review and possible adjustment by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and state tax authorities. The federal carryforwards expire at various dates through 2032. For state purposes, Massachusetts has a five year net operating loss carryover rule for tax years beginning before January 1, 2010. At March 31, 2012, there are $1.475 million in Massachusetts net operating loss carryforwards set to expire at various dates through 2015. For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2010, Massachusetts has adopted a twenty year net operating loss carryover rule and has $3.1 million in net operating loss carryforwards that are set to expire at various dates through 2032.

 

Utilization of NOLs may be subject to annual limitations due to ownership change limitations that have occurred previously or that could occur in the future as provided by Section 382 and 383 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as well as similar state provisions. These ownership changes may limit the amount of NOL carryforwards that can be utilized annually to offset future taxable income. In general, an ownership change, as defined by Section 382, results from transactions increasing the ownership of certain shareholders or public groups in the stock of a corporation by more than 50 percentage points within a three year period.

 

The Company considered the change in ownership during 2011 and determined that a change in ownership as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code occurred. As a result of this change in ownership, the utilization of its Federal and state net operating losses are subject to an annual limitation based on a statutory rate of return and the value of the corporation at the time of the change in ownership. The utilization of the Company’s NOL carryforwards may be further limited if the Company experiences future ownership changes as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. The current annual calculated Section 382 limitation is $405,042.

 

In addition, $121,400 of Federal general business credits are available to the Company as carryforwards, expiring in various dates through 2032. Since these credits cannot be utilized until the Federal net operating loss carryforward is exhausted, they are fully reserved for in the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance.

 

In addition, $7,950 of Massachusetts investment tax credits are available to the Company as carryforwards, expiring in various dates through 2015, Since these credits cannot be utilized until the Massachusetts net operating loss carryforward is exhausted, they are fully reserved for in the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance.

 

The Company is taxed under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and state tax laws.  The Company files tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, New York State and Massachusetts.  The tax returns for the years ended December 31, 2008 through December 31, 2011 are still subject to potential audit by the IRS and the taxing authorities in New York State and Massachusetts.  The Company adopted the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes and its related amendment on January 1, 2009.  Management of the Company believes it has no material uncertain tax positions and, accordingly it will not recognize any liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

7.    Financing Arrangements

 

Note Payable

 

On October 13, 2011, the Company and its subsidiary, AMS entered into a series of agreements with Massachusetts Development Financing Agency “MDFA”) related to financing for  up to $2,000,000 loan for the purchase of equipment, including a Loan Agreement, a Note, a Security Agreement, a Guaranty and a Warrant. The actual principal amount will be based on equipment purchased during the first six months or such longer period as the lender permits.  The loan bears interest at the rate of 6.25% per annum.

The loan is repayable in whole or part without penalty.  The loan is secured by a security interest in substantially all of the assets of AMS, excluding intellectual property.  The Company has granted a warrant to MDFA for 59,524 shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $2.10. The fair value of the warrant of $80,357 was recorded as a discount to the debt. Additionally, the Company paid the direct financing costs, which was recorded as a deferred financing cost of $34,000. At March 31, 2012 AMS had borrowed $1,654,286. Interest expense of $24,690 was paid for three months ended March 31, 2012.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

In addition to historical information, this Quarterly Report contains forward-looking statements.  The forward-looking statements contained herein are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements.  Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, those discussed in this section.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect management’s analysis only as of the date hereof.  The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly revise these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date hereof.  Readers should carefully review the risks described in other documents the Company files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the former fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, the Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed by the Company and any Current Reports on Form 8-K by the Company.

 

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the condensed financial statements and notes thereto in this quarterly report.

 

Overview

 

Until August 10, 2011, and since 2009, the Company was considered a shell company, in that it did not have significant assets and conducted no operations. On August 10, 2011 the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary merged with and into Plures Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Plures Technologies, Inc.). Plures Holdings, Inc. is the holder of approximately 95% of the outstanding common stock of Advanced Microsensors Corporation (“AMS”). AMS and its predecessor have been in business for approximately 12 years and are based in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. The business of AMS is the design and fabrication of micromechanical electrical systems (MEMS) including, in some instances magnetic components (Spintronics), and its principal activities include the fabrication of magnetic compass sensors and MEMS switches.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the Company, and its subsidiary, Advanced Micro Sensors Corporation.   All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

 

The preparation of 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 disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

The Company’s policy is to maintain allowances for estimated losses from the inability of its customers to make required payments. Credit limits are established through a process of reviewing the financial results, stability and payment history of each customer. Where appropriate, the Company obtains credit rating reports and financial statements of customers when determining or modifying credit limits. The Company’s senior management reviews accounts receivable on a periodic basis to determine if any receivables may potentially be uncollectible. The Company includes any accounts receivable balances that it determines may likely be uncollectible, along with a general reserve for estimated probable losses based on historical experience, in its overall allowance for doubtful accounts. An amount would be written off against the allowance after all attempts to collect the receivable had failed. Based on the information available to the Company, it believes the allowance for doubtful accounts is adequate.

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities arise from temporary differences associated with differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities, as measured by the enacted tax rates which are expected to be in effect when these differences reverse.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are classified as current or noncurrent, depending on the classification of the assets and liabilities to which they relate.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or noncurrent depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse.  

 

The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets since management believes that, after considering all the available objective evidence, both positive and negative, historical and prospective, with greater weight given to historical evidence, it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 will not be realized.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Costs are determined using the first-in, first-out method. The Company regularly reviews inventory quantities on hand and records a provision for excess and/or obsolete inventory primarily based upon estimated usage of its inventory as well as other factors.

 

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are evaluated for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable.  Intangible assets subject to amortization were the result of the Company’s acquisition of AMS Inc.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when (i) an agreement exists, (ii) delivery has occurred, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue from the sale of products and prototypes is recognized upon delivery, or upon customer acceptance for transactions where customer acceptance is stipulated and when all other revenue recognition criteria have been met. Revenue from engineering development services is recognized when services are performed and when all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews the valuation of long-lived assets whenever events or change circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. When it is determined that the carrying value of applicable long-lived assets may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more indicators, the Company must evaluate whether the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of that asset. The impairment would be measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the particular long-lived assets exceeds its fair value. The fair value would be determined based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent in the current business model or through an independent appraisal of individual assets.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three months Ended March 31, 2012 and 2011

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $2,800,189, compared with $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, reflecting the acquisition of AMS operations on May 23, 2011 and no revenue in 2011 prior to that date.

 

Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $ 2,278,692, compared with $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, reflecting the acquisition of AMS operations on May 23, 2011. This resulted in a gross profit of $521,497. Cost of revenue includes a credit for the reduction in the estimate for warranty claims of $93,000.

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $447,502 as compared with $68,685 for the 2011 period, the increase is due to a very small staff during the 2011 non-operating period as compared with the staff of the Company including AMS in the 2012 period which increased payroll and payroll related expenses by approximately $195,000. Professional fees for legal and audit also increased approximately $30,000 over the 2011 period. Additionally amortization of intangibles represented approximately $64,000 of the 2012 amount.

 

Other income (expense) in the three months ended March 31, 2012 was ($63,146). This includes interest expense of approximately $26,000 related to the note payable as well as $56,131 in expense for the change in fair value of warrants issued as part of the loan agreement. These expenses were partially offset by a gain on materials of approximately $20,000. Other income (expense ) at March 31, 2011 was $0.

 

As a result of the above, the Company had net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 of $11,364 as compared to a loss of $68,685 for the 2011 period when the Company was a shell corporation.

 

 

Liquidity and Financial Resources

 

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company believes that, existing cash and additional equity or debt financing in the amount of approximately $2 million will be adequate to support its planned level of operations. The Company estimates it will need an additional approximately $1.0 million for equipment, which is part of the $2 million set forth above during 2012.  The Company is presently pursuing an incremental application with the Massachusetts Development Financing Agency for these funds. The Company cannot be certain that any required additional debt or equity or other funding will be available on acceptable terms, or at all. If the Company fails to obtain additional funding when needed, it may be forced to scale back, or terminate operations, or seek to merge with or be acquired by another company. The Company expects its general and administrative costs to increase as the Company adds personnel. 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 net cash provided by operations was $128,077 compared to $4,500 for the 2011 period. The cash generated by operations during the period ended March 31, 2012 was due primarily to net income of $10,849 which when adjusted by approximately $188,300 of non-cash expenses for interest, stock compensation, amortization and depreciation resulted in approximately $199,150 in cash generated. This was offset by a net decrease in operating assets and liabilities of approximately $71,060.

 

Cash flow used for investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2012 includes the acquisition of $505,793 in new equipment for AMS’s manufacturing operation. Cash flow from financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $255,864 which primarily represents additional borrowing on the AMS’s note payable to Mass Development Loan of $257,881, which was used to fund equipment purchases. The remaining availability under the loan agreement as of March 31, 2012 was $345,714.
