This Annual Report of Rand Worldwide, Inc. on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2012 may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Readers of this report should be aware of the speculative nature of forward-looking statements. Statements that are not historical in nature, including those that include the words anticipate, estimate, should, expect, believe, intend, and similar expressions, are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about, among other things, the industry and the markets in which Rand Worldwide, Inc. operates, and they are not guarantees of future performance. Whether actual results will conform to expectations and predictions is subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including risks and uncertainties discussed in this report; general economic, market, or business conditions; cost of capital, demand for products and services; changes in Rand Worldwide, Inc.s competitive position or competitive actions by other companies; the ability to manage growth; changes in laws or regulations or policies of federal and state regulators and agencies; and other circumstances beyond the Rand Worldwide, Inc.s control. Consequently, all of the forward-looking statements made in this document are qualified by these cautionary statements, and there can be no assurance that the actual results anticipated will be realized, or if substantially realized, will have the expected consequences on the Rand Worldwide, Inc.s business or operations. Except as required by applicable laws, Rand Worldwide, Inc. does not intend to publish updates or revisions of forward-looking statements it makes to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.
When used throughout this annual report, the terms Rand Worldwide, the Company, we, us and our refer to Rand Worldwide, Inc. and, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, its consolidated subsidiaries.
Rand Worldwide, Inc. (Rand Worldwide) is a leading supplier in the design automation, facilities and data management software marketplace. Rand Worldwide also provides value-added services, such as training, technical support, data archiving solutions and other consulting and professional services to businesses, government agencies and educational institutions worldwide.
On August 17, 2010, the Company, then known as Avatech Solutions, Inc. (Avatech), acquired all the outstanding common stock of a separate corporation then known as Rand Worldwide, Inc. in a reverse merger transaction (the Merger). On January 1, 2011, the Company changed its name from Avatech Solutions, Inc. to Rand Worldwide, Inc. In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), because the Merger was accounted for as a reverse merger, the consolidated financial statements represent a continuation of the pre-Merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. Accordingly, the financial results for the year ended June 30, 2011 include the results of pre-Merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. from July 1, 2010 through August 17, 2010 and the results of the post-Merger combined Company from August 18, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Results for pre-Merger Avatech prior to August 17, 2010 have not been included. The results for the year ended June 30, 2012 are those of the combined post-Merger Company. All intercompany accounts and transactions between Avatech and its subsidiaries prior to the Merger, between pre-Merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. and its subsidiaries prior to the Merger, and the combined post-Merger Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated in consolidation.
Rand Worldwide is a leader in design, engineering, data archiving solutions, and facilities management technology solutions with expertise in computer aided design (CAD) software, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), data management, facilities management, and process optimization for the manufacturing, engineering, and building design industries. The Company specializes in software resale, technology consulting, implementation, integration, training, data archiving, CFD analysis consulting and thermal simulation services and technical support solutions that enable clients to more effectively design, develop, and manage projects, products, and facilities. The Company is globally diversified with offices in the United States, Canada, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. Rand Worldwide has over 25 years of industry experience and expertise, an extensive list of training and implementation services and longstanding relationships with design technology leaders including Autodesk, Archibus and Autonomy. The Companys clients include businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions.
The Company differentiates itself from traditional product resellers through a wide range of value-added services, consisting primarily of training, technical support, professional services and courseware development. It also provides software customization, data migration, computer-aided design standards consulting, process workflow analysis, and implementation assistance for complex design environments. Its strategic focus is to provide clients a competitive advantage with technology solutions that address broad, enterprise-wide initiatives.
Rand Worldwides sales and service delivery network consists of approximately 300 employees operating out of 52 business offices throughout the world. The Company has an extensive sales database that contains several hundred thousand point-of-contact names collected over its history and an active customer list of approximately 30,000 private firms, federal, state, and local agencies, and colleges and universities.
The Companys ongoing strategic plan calls for it to leverage the solid core business base that has been established to profitably grow its product and services offerings in the design engineering market space. Concurrently, the Company plans to continue to identify and engage in diverse software and services
opportunities through strategic relationship development while taking advantage of its established brand, its geographic footprint and technical expertise to accomplish its objectives. Thus, the strategic plan calls for the Company to target specific product lines that will maximize its Autodesk business, to leverage its market position and core competencies, and to grow the services component of its business. In accordance with its strategic plan, in February 2012, the Company acquired the assets of Inlet Technology, LLC, a Virginia-based Autodesk reseller, and in July 2012 acquired the assets of Informative Design Partners (IDP). IDP is a specialty services company in the CFD market and delivers CFD analysis consulting and thermal simulation services that provide design insight, allowing clients to make better informed design decisions.
Rand Worldwide has a software development team within its professional services group that is charged with the responsibility of developing software-based solutions for customers that improve the customers design workflow processes. These may include sales-oriented configuration tools or engineering-oriented automation and integration tools. The solutions often involve automating or enhancing the software products the Company sells. While focused on software customization services, the team has developed a series of add-ons and utilities complementary to the products that it resells. Such software is both offered for sale and, in some cases, provided at no cost as an additional benefit to its customers. It is Rand Worldwides intention to continue the development of software applications as well as to identify new areas for commercial software development.
The Companys product sales are somewhat cyclical, and increase when the developer of a specific software product releases a new version, offers promotions or discontinues support of an older product. As is common among software resellers, the Company purchases products from its suppliers with a combination of cash and credit. The Company allows returns in limited situations.
Substantially all of Rand Worldwides product sales consist of the sale of prepackaged software focused on the following four major product categories.
Design Automation. More than 92% of product revenues arise from the resale of design software developed by Autodesk for the building design and land development, manufacturing, utilities, and telecommunications industries. These product sales are primarily packaged software programs installed on a user workstation, on a local area network server, or in a hosted environment. The programs perform and support a wide variety of functions related to design, drafting, manufacturing, workflow automation, and document management activities.
Rand Worldwide also provides 3D laser scanning products including scanners and related hardware and software, as well as equipment rentals. This solution provides accurate as-builts of existing structures and facilities, resulting in a more accurate and cost effective design.
Data Management. Data management software products help businesses reduce costs, improve quality, strengthen relationships with customers and suppliers, and deliver more innovative products and services to minimize product time-to-market by leveraging the value of existing data.
Facilities Management. Physical assets, such as real estate, buildings, equipment, materials, and furniture are a significant percentage of an organizations total asset value. These assets are used by many different business units, departments, and individuals, and must be accurately managed in order to extend asset life cycles and keep operating costs at a minimum.
Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) and Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) systems enable organizations to make informed strategic and business decisions that optimize return on investment, lower asset lifecycle costs, and increase enterprise-wide productivity and profitability. Organizations of all sizes, spanning the financial, educational, governmental, healthcare, and manufacturing
industries, use these solutions to deliver timely, relevant facilities information as part of their strategic business plans.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) permit users to link together disparate data files (maps, aerial photos, tax records, marketing data, etc.) and provide the user with a unified image and knowledge base of a specific geographic location or building location. When combined with information from a facilities management system, information from GIS applications provide an integrated facilities view that allows enhanced analysis in various spatial contexts for professionals responsible for asset tracking, maintenance, emergency preparedness, space allocation, and construction planning.
The Company sells, customizes, and implements IWMS and CAFM solutions through its dedicated sales team, technical specialists, and network of strategic partners. It also provides GIS database development services to facilities management customers, both through its employees and strategic partners.
ASCENT Courseware. Through its ASCENT division, the Company is ta leading developer and publisher of professional training and knowledge products for engineering software applications. ASCENT courseware is distributed globally through outside distribution channels and its products are used to train thousands of people in the engineering and manufacturing fields around the world each year. ASCENTs courseware for the Autodesk products has received Autodesk Official Training Guide (AOTG) designation.
Professional services include project-focused software implementations, software customization, data migration, computer aided design standards consulting, supplemental design staffing, drawing digitization, symbol library development, and CFD analysis consulting and thermal simulation services. The Company employs over 100 industry specialists who provide professional services to its design automation customers.
Rand Worldwide offers training courses in approximately 50 different subjects related to various software solutions offered at 50 training facilities and through mobile labs sent to customer sites or other off-site facilities. Training is led by over 100 technical experts that have formal training or proven industry experience in the topics they teach. The Company also provides training services that are highly tailored to meet the needs of a particular customer, including company-specific operational topics, customized product usage, and other general technology or process training. As part of the training offering, the Company has developed and deployed an Internet-based assessment tool that allows its clients to test their employees knowledge and ability to use the software tools.
The Company provides end-user support services through its Solution Center which provides customers with access to highly-trained certified product-specific support engineers who accelerate issue resolution, live telephone and desktop support, online case management, and the ProductivityNOW Online Portal. A staff of full-time technology consultants assists customers with questions about product features, functions, usability issues, and configurations. The Solution Center offers services through multiple access levels including prepaid services, actual elapsed time, and annual support contracts.
The Company provides a hosted data archiving solution known as Rand Secure Archive. From total cost of ownership and scalability, to security and compliance, digital data archiving has become a leading IT and legal department challenge. Companies are investing time, money and resources to implement and manage complex digital data archiving systems to effectively handle massive amounts of electronic data. Rand Secure Archive offers data archiving and management solutions based on world-class technology. With Rand Secure Archive, companies can simplify the process to store, manage and search data and electronic communications enabling regulatory and corporate governance compliance.
Rand Secure Archive is a fully-hosted, on-demand solution that allows for rapid eDiscovery searches, governance, legal hold and data recovery. Data is hosted on secure servers with direct data access available at all times. Following its launch during the summer of 2011, over 40,000 users have selected Rand Secure Archive as their hosted data archiving solution.
Markets and Competition
Design Automation. In the design automation market, Rand Worldwide focuses on providing enterprise solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses with under one billion dollars of annual revenue, primarily in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) market and the mechanical design and manufacturing (MFG) market. The AEC market is comprised of design services focused on the construction of large physical assets such as buildings, roads, factories, utility companies, and commercial infrastructure projects. The MFG market is primarily focused on the design, tooling, assembly, and testing of instruments, electronic devices, machines, mechanical devices, and power-driven equipment.
While several local and regional competitors exist in the various geographic territories where the Company conducts business, it believes that it has a competitive advantage in terms of geographic reach, comprehensive training and support, and the provision of other products and services, and that it is one of the largest commercial Autodesk resellers in the United States. One national competitor that could be compared to Rand Worldwide in scale, size, geographical reach, and target markets for the resale of Autodesk products is Tata Technologies Company (Tata).
Tata is a systems integrator for design automation products with offices located in 17 countries and has headquarters in the United States, the United Kingdom, and India. While the Company believes that Tata has greater revenues than Rand Worldwide, the Company estimates that the Autodesk portion of Tatas business is less than the Companys Autodesk business.
Data Management. In this market, the Company faces similar competition from local and regional Autodesk resellers in its design automation business.
Facilities Management. The Company provides IWMS and CAFM solutions to organizations of all sizes, spanning the financial, educational, governmental, healthcare, and manufacturing industries. As a reseller of technology from ARCHIBUS and Idisis, the Company competes with not only competitive applications but also other resellers of the products it represents.
Arrangements with Principal Suppliers
Revenues are primarily derived from the resale of vendor software products and services. These sales are made pursuant to channel sales agreements whereby Rand Worldwide is granted the authority to purchase and resell the vendor products and services. Under these agreements, the Company both resells software directly to its customers and acts as a sales agent for various vendors and receives commissions for its sales efforts.
On February 1, 2010, the Company entered into renewable Value Added Reseller Agreements with Autodesk. The renewable agreements have a term of three years but provide targets and set forth rebate programs for a one-year period. Under these agreements, Autodesk appointed the Company as a non-exclusive partner to market, distribute, and support Autodesk software products. The territories for such authorizations include the authorization to sell various Autodesk products in parts of the United States and Australia and in all of Canada, Malaysia and Singapore. The Company must achieve yearly minimum purchase requirements from the sale of Autodesks various software products in order to be eligible to purchase such products directly from Autodesk. For the year ended June 30, 2012, the Companys revenue from the sale of Autodesk software and subscriptions was approximately $65.4 million.
The Company markets its products to private companies, public corporations, government agencies, and educational institutions throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. In the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the revenues generated by our top 10 customers represented approximately six percent of consolidated revenues, and no single customer accounted for one percent or more of our consolidated revenues.
The Company regards its technology and other proprietary rights as essential to its business. As such, it relies on copyright, trade secret, confidentiality procedures, contract provisions, and trademark law to protect its technology and intellectual property. Rand Worldwide has confidentiality agreements with its consultants and corporate partners and controls access to, and distribution of, its products, documentation, and other proprietary information.
Rand Worldwide owns several federally registered trademarks, and has other trademark applications pending, but has no patents or patent applications pending. This Annual Report contains trademarks and trade names of Rand Worldwide and its affiliates as well as those of other companies. All trademarks and trade names appearing in this report are the property of their respective holders.
At June 30, 2012, the Company had 395 employees, of which 392 are full-time employees including 33 at our Owings Mills, Maryland office and 13 at our Framingham, Massachusetts office, which offices constitute our corporate headquarters and house a training facility and some sales and technical personnel. Other employees are located in 50 other offices throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. None of our employees are represented by collective bargaining agreements, and we have never experienced a work stoppage. We believe that our employee relations are good.
Rand Worldwide maintains an Internet site at http://rand.com on which it makes available, free of charge, its Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, and all amendments to the foregoing as soon as reasonably practicable after these reports are electronically filed with, or furnished to, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC). In addition, stockholders may access these reports and documents on the SECs web site at www.sec.gov. The Companys executive offices are located at 161 Worcester Road, Suite 401, Framingham, Massachusetts 01701 and its telephone number is (508) 663-1400.
Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.
The Company has corporate offices in Framingham, Massachusetts and Owings Mills, Maryland with leases for 10,127 square feet and 10,179 square feet, respectively, that expire on October 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively. These facilities house executive and primary administrative offices as well as accounting, order processing operations, IT, sales, and marketing. The Company also leases office space at the following locations:
The commercial real estate market is volatile and unpredictable in terms of available space, rental fees, and occupancy rates and preferred locations. The Company cannot be certain that additional space will be available when it is required, or that it will be affordable or in a preferred location.
From time to time, the Company is involved in legal matters or named as a defendant in legal actions arising from normal operations, or is presented with claims for damages arising out of the conduct of its business. Management believes that no pending matter, alone or together with other pending matters, is likely to have a material adverse effect on the Companys future financial condition or results of operations.

THE FOLLOWING DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF THE FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS SHOULD BE READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND THE RELATED NOTES THERETO INCLUDED ELSEWHERE IN THIS REPORT.
Rand Worldwide is a leading provider of design automation and data management solutions for the manufacturing, building design, engineering, infrastructure and facilities management markets. The Company also specializes in technical support, training, and consulting aimed at improving design and documentation efficiencies and the seamless integration of workflow processes. This combination of technology solutions and services enables customers to enhance productivity, profitability, and competitive position.
The Companys business strategy is built on three core principles designed to leverage its existing strengths with expected market opportunities:
Critical Accounting Policies
The consolidated financial statements are impacted by the accounting policies used and the estimates and assumptions made by management during their preparation. Critical accounting policies and estimates that
impact the consolidated financial statements are those that relate to software revenue recognition, estimates of bad debts, income taxes and recoverability of goodwill and purchased intangible assets. All of these critical accounting policies are discussed with and reviewed by the Companys Audit Committee on a periodic basis. Presented below is a description of the accounting policies that management believes are most critical to an understanding of the consolidated financial statements.
Software Revenue Recognition- The Company derives most of its revenue from the resale of packaged software products, and, historically, the Company has not experienced significant customer returns. Rand Worldwide earns service revenue from training and other professional services, which often are related to the products that are sold but are not essential to the functionality of the software. Annual support contracts are also offered to customers for the software products that are sold, or the Company offers maintenance and support services under hourly billing arrangements.
Revenue from software arrangements is recognized in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 985 (previously American Institution of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Statement of Position (SOP) No. 97-2, Software Revenue Recognition, as amended by SOP No. 98-9, Modification of SOP 97-2, Software Revenue Recognition, With Respect to Certain Transactions). Prior to recognizing any revenue under these arrangements, (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement must exist, (2) delivery of the software or service must have occurred, (3) all fees must be assessed as fixed or determinable, and (4) all fees must be probable of collection. The Company determines whether criteria (3) and (4) have been satisfied based on its judgment regarding the fixed nature of the fee charged for services rendered and products delivered and the collectability of such fee. Revenue recognized in a reporting period could be adversely affected if future changes in conditions related to a transaction cause management to determine these criteria are not met. In the past, it has not been necessary to adjust reported revenues due to changes in conditions, and the Company continues to evaluate current conditions that may affect the nature and timing of our revenue recognition.
The Companys arrangements with its customers may involve the sale of one or more products and services at the same time. The Company considers these to be multiple elements of a single arrangement. The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2009-13, Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements (ASU 2009-13), on a prospective basis as of the beginning of fiscal year 2011 for new and materially modified arrangements originating on or after July 1, 2010. Under the new standards, we allocate the total arrangement consideration to each separable element based on the relative selling price of each element in accordance with selling price hierarchy, which includes: vendor specific objective evidence (VSOE) if available; third party evidence (TPE) if VSOE is not available; and best estimate of selling price if neither VSOE nor TPE is available. In general, the Company uses VSOE to allocate the selling price to each element. Arrangement consideration allocated to undelivered elements is deferred until delivery of the individual elements.
Bad Debts- The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses which may result from the inability of customers to pay for purchased products and services or for disputes that affect the ability to fully collect accounts receivable. Rand Worldwide estimates this allowance by reviewing the status of past-due accounts and records general reserves based on historical bad debt expense. Accounts are considered past due based on the payment terms as stated on the invoice. Actual experience has not varied significantly from estimates; however, if the financial condition of the Companys customers were to deteriorate, resulting in their inability to pay for products or services, there may be a need to record additional allowances in future periods. To mitigate this risk, the Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers.
Income Taxes- Income taxes are accounted for under the liability method, under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect in the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance against the net deferred tax assets is recorded if based upon the weight of available evidence it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company records
liabilities for income tax contingencies if it is probable that the Company has incurred a tax liability and the liability or range of loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company records liabilities for uncertain tax positions in accordance with ASC 740-10 Income Taxes.
Recoverability of goodwill and purchased intangible assets- The Company accounts for goodwill and other intangibles under ASC 350 (previously Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets). ASC 350 prescribes a two-phase process for impairment testing of goodwill. The first phase screens for impairment; while the second phase, if necessary, measures the impairment. Management considers the Company to be a single reporting unit; accordingly, all of the goodwill is associated with the entire company. The Company performs the required impairment analysis of goodwill annually or on an interim basis if circumstances dictate. Any reduction of the enterprise fair value below the recorded amount of equity could require the Company to write down the value of goodwill and record an expense for an impairment loss. Managements analysis of the recoverability of goodwill as of June 30, 2012 determined that there was no need for any write downs of its assets.
Results of Operations
The following describes the components of each line item of our consolidated statement of operations.
Product Sales- Product sales consist primarily of the resale of packaged design software, including:
Service Revenue- Rand Worldwide provides services in the form of training, consulting services, software development, custom courseware development, technical support and hosted data archiving solutions to its customers. Rand Worldwide employs a technical staff of over 100 personnel associated with these types of services. The Company also offers support and implementation services to complement the data archive solutions provided and sold through its Rand Secure Archive Division.
Commission Revenue- The Company offers Autodesks subscription programs, which entitle subscribers to receive software upgrades, web support and eLearning lessons directly from Autodesk. Because Rand Worldwide does not participate in the delivery of these subscription products or the web support and eLearning lesson benefits, the Company records the gross profit from the sale of Autodesk software subscriptions as commission revenue. In addition, the Company sells technology upgrades to existing Autodesk customers through the Autodesk Subscription program where the customers receive the latest releases of Autodesk software, incremental product enhancements, and personalized web support direct from Autodesk.
Based on its analysis of the Autodesk Subscription program, Rand Worldwide records the net proceeds that it receives from Autodesk for subscription sales in accordance with the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ASC 605 (previously EITF 99-19, Reporting Revenue Gross as a Principal versus Net as an Agent).
Rand Worldwide also generates commission revenue from the resale of Autodesk software to various customers, a number of which Autodesk considers major and government accounts. Autodesk designates customers as major accounts based on specific criteria, primarily sales volume, and typically gives these customers volume discounts. The Company is responsible for managing and reselling Autodesk products to a number of these major and government account customers; however, software products are shipped directly from Autodesk to the customers. Rand Worldwide receives commissions upon shipment of the products from Autodesk to the customer based on a percentage of the sales price.
Cost of Product Sales- The cost of product sales consists of the cost of purchasing products from software suppliers or hardware manufacturers as well as the associated shipping and handling costs. The Company earns a volume incentive rebate from its primary supplier, Autodesk, paid monthly as a percentage of qualifying purchases. The rebate percentage is established based on quarterly purchasing volume. These rebates serve to reduce the cost of product sales. The Company accrues its rebates the month the underlying sales are posted, in accordance with ASC 605-50, Customer Payments and Incentives. The Company has generally been able to focus its sales efforts in a manner to achieve margins on its product sales that are within a relatively narrow range period to period.
Cost of Service Revenue- Cost of service revenue includes the direct costs associated with the implementation of software and hardware solutions as well as training, support services, and professional services. These costs consist primarily of compensation, travel, literature, and the costs of third-party contractors engaged by the Company. The cost of service revenue does not include an allocation of overhead costs.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses- Selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation and other expenses associated with the Companys sales force, management, finance, human resources, and information systems. Advertising and public relations expenses and expenses for facilities, such as rent and utilities, are also included in selling, general and administrative expenses.
Depreciation and Amortization Expenses- Depreciation expense represents the period costs associated with our investment in property and equipment, consisting principally of computer equipment, software, furniture and fixtures, and leasehold improvements. Amortization expense represents the period costs of the acquired customer list and trade name intangible assets. The Company computes depreciation and amortization expenses using the straight-line method. Rand Worldwide leases all of its facilities and depreciates leasehold improvements over the lesser of the lease term or the estimated useful life of the asset. Total amortization expense for the year ended June 30, 2012 was $678,000. Total depreciation expense for the year ended June 30, 2012 was $917,000.
Interest Expense- For the year ended June 30, 2012, interest expense consisted of interest on capital lease obligations and borrowings from lines of credit.

The following table sets forth the percentages of total revenue represented by selected items reflected in our audited Consolidated Statements of Operations included elsewhere in this report. The year-to-year comparisons of financial results are not necessarily indicative of future results.
As previously noted , the Company, then known as Avatech Solutions, Inc., merged with a corporation then known as Rand Worldwide, Inc. on August 17, 2010 and changed its name to Rand Worldwide, Inc. on January 1, 2011. Although Avatech Solutions, Inc. was the legal successor in that merger, pre-merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. was considered to be the continuing entity for financial statement reporting purposes. Accordingly, the results discussed below for the year ended June 30, 2011 include those of pre-merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. for the full year and those of Avatech Solutions, Inc. since August 17, 2010 while the results for the year ended June 30, 2012 are those of the combined post-Merger Company.
Year Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Year Ended June 30, 2011
Revenue: Total revenue for the year ended June 30, 2012 increased by $185,000, or 0.2%, when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011.
Product sales decreased by $151,000, or 0.3%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. As previously noted, fiscal year 2011 does not include a full year of combined operations of the two pre-Merger companies. Fiscal year 2011 product revenues would have been $52.1 million had an entire year of combined operations been included in the financial results, therefore on a combined basis, product revenues decreased $2.6 million. Much of this decrease in product revenue occurred because the Company had a single product sale of $2.3 million during fiscal year 2011 and no similarly large sale during fiscal year 2012. Further driving the reduction in year-over-year product sales were changes in promotions offered to our customers by Autodesk, the vendor of the majority of our products sold. Autodesk heavily promoted its Design Suite products during fiscal year 2011, offering promotional pricing, mail-in rebates and zero percent interest financing, which boosted the Companys product sales during fiscal year 2011. While the Autodesk promotions continued partway into fiscal year 2012, such promotions were stronger and had more impact on fiscal year 2011 than on fiscal year 2012. Furthermore, through attrition the Company lost a number of its experienced salespeople. The Company hired replacements for the departed salespeople as well as new positions, and has in place an aggressive training and ramp-up program for new hires, the loss of those experienced salespeople caused a temporary reduction in sales productivity while the new hires are ramping up their productivity.
Service revenues increased $120,000, or 0.6%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. Fiscal year 2011 service revenues would have been $21.5 million had an entire year of combined operations been included in the financial results, therefore on a combined basis, service revenues decreased $745,000. During fiscal year 2011, the Company completed a few large, strategic, long-term consulting projects and did not have as many large projects during fiscal year 2012. With the acquisition of the Computational Fluid Dynamics consulting practice of Informative Design Partners during July of 2012, the Company expects its consulting services to increase during the next fiscal year.
Commission revenues increased $216,000, or 1.1%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. Fiscal year 2011 commission revenue would have been $19.6 million had an entire year of combined operations been included in the financial results, therefore on a combined basis, commission revenues decreased $560,000. The Company closed a large single sale during fiscal year 2011 which netted approximately $550,000 of commission revenue, and no similar large sales during fiscal year 2012. Year-over-year commission revenues, on a combined basis, were flat due to the decrease in experienced salespeople as previously noted.
Cost of Revenue
Cost of Revenue: Total cost of revenue decreased by $235,000, or 0.5%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011.
Cost of product sales increased 1.3% while product sales decreased 0.3% during the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. As previously noted, fiscal year 2011 does not include a full year of combined operations of the two pre-Merger companies. Fiscal year 2011 product costs would have been $35.1 million had an entire year of combined operations been included in the financial results, therefore on a combined basis, product costs decreased $1.3 million. Product costs increased at a higher rate than product revenues due to the Company earning lower sales rebates based on targets established by the Companys principal supplier, Autodesk. These sales rebates were applied to the cost of product sales. For its new fiscal year beginning February 1, 2012, Autodesk ended its target-based rebates and began a new volume-based rebate which resulted in a larger rebate earned for the months following this change. The Company has seen that the new volume-based rebate yields a slightly higher rebate percentage than the previous target-based rebate.
Cost of service revenue decreased 4.7%, while service revenue increased by 0.6% during the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. Fiscal year 2011 cost of service revenues would have been $14.7 million had an entire year of combined operations been included in the financial results, therefore on a combined basis, cost of service revenues decreased $1.3 million. The year-over-year decreases were the result of having fewer technical staff as well as decreased external costs associated with email archiving and data storage services. Cost of service revenue as a percentage of related revenue decreased to 64.8% during the current fiscal year from 68.4% during the prior fiscal year for the reasons explained above.
Gross Margin: The Companys overall gross margin percentage of 47.1% for the year ended June 30, 2012 was higher than the 46.7% gross margin for the year ended June 30, 2011 due primarily to the decreased cost of service revenue.
Other Operating Expenses
Selling, General and Administrative: Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $1.4 million, or 3.7%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. Fiscal year 2011 included $1.7 million in one-time Merger-related costs, and did not include $1.6 million in expenses from the operations of pre-Merger Avatech, while fiscal year 2012 included no such costs and was for a full year of post-
Merger operations. Performance-based bonuses were $944,000 lower during fiscal year 2012 when compared to fiscal year 2011 because the Company fell short of its maximum earnings targets for such bonuses during fiscal year 2012, while exceeding earnings targets during fiscal year 2011. Additionally, bad debt expense was $251,000 lower during fiscal year 2012 as the Company significantly improved its aging of accounts receivable and reduced the amount of past-due accounts.
Depreciation and Amortization: Depreciation and amortization expenses decreased $182,000, or 10.2%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011, primarily as the result of decreased amortization expense on the older intangibles which were amortized using an accelerated method.
Other Income and (Expense):
Other Income and (Expense): Other income and (expense) includes interest expense arising from the Companys borrowings and recognized foreign exchange gains and losses.
Interest expense decreased $190,000, or 36.4%, for the year ended June 30, 2012 when compared to the year ended June 30, 2011. Prior to the Merger in August of 2010, the pre-Merger Company incurred $175,000 on its related-party term note. Prior to the August 2010 Merger, the term note was effectively exchanged for common stock, as described in Note 17 of the accompanying financial statements, resulting in a significant reduction in interest expense. Additionally, the interest on the line of credit decreased due to a more favorable interest rate on the new line of credit as discussed in Note 5.
The Company incurred $97,000 of currency exchange losses during the year ended June 30, 2012, compared with $244,000 of losses for the 12 months ended June 30, 2011. The losses were mainly due to the Canadian Dollar gaining strength over the US Dollar, causing Canadian net assets to decrease in value as reported in US dollars.
Income Tax Expense (Benefit)
n.m. = not meaningful
Income Tax Expense (Benefit): The Company recorded a tax benefit of $4,022,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 versus income tax expense of $186,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011.
The income tax benefit recorded during fiscal year 2012 was the result of recognizing as a deferred tax asset the realizable portion of the Companys U.S. net operating loss carryforwards. The Company previously had created a valuation allowance against the entire amount of net operating loss carryforwards, recognizing no deferred tax asset because it did not have a sufficient history of profitable operations to support the recognition of
the asset. Since the Company has now established a sufficient history of consecutive profitable quarters, and projects continuing profits, the valuation allowance against the U.S. net operating loss carryforwards was reduced in the fourth fiscal quarter by $4.3 million to recognize the portion of the net operating loss carryforwards projected to be utilized prior to expiration. The Company continues to maintain a valuation allowance on the entirety of its U.S. capital loss carryforwards and state net operating loss carryforwards due to uncertainty about its ability to utilize such carryforwards.
As of June 30, 2012, the Companys U.S. federal net operating loss carryforwards available to reduce future taxable income were $41.0 million, however $25.3 million of these carryforwards were not recognized because they are subject to annual limitations under Internal Revenue Code Section 382 and are expected to expire before being utilized. For tax year June 30, 2012, it is projected that approximately $3.5 million of net operating loss carryforwards will be utilized to offset taxable income.
In addition, as of June 30, 2012, the Company had foreign net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $19.6 million available to reduce future taxable income, and net deferred tax assets of $6.8 million. The carryforwards expire between 2012 and 2029 for some jurisdictions and for other jurisdictions, the losses may be carried forward indefinitely. The Company maintains a valuation allowance on the entire amount of its foreign deferred tax assets due to insufficient history of profitable operations.
The Companys Canadian subsidiary, Rand A Technology Corporation, is currently being audited by the Canada Revenue Agency for tax years 2005 through 2009. Management believes that it has properly recorded the tax expense for the periods under review and expects no material adjustments to the respective returns or to its financial statements.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Historically, the Company has financed its operations and met its capital expenditure requirements primarily through cash flows provided by operations and borrowings under short-term debt arrangements.
On February 29, 2012, the Company entered into an $8 million line of credit facility, including a $1,000,000 sublimit for the issuance of standby or trade letters of credit with PNC Bank, National Association. The interest rate is the Eurodollar Rate, which is calculated by using the LIBOR rate, plus a margin of 2.0%. The interest rate as of June 30, 2012 was 2.2%. The Company had outstanding borrowings from the bank under its credit line of approximately $3.1 million as of June 30, 2012 and had $3.9 million outstanding as of June 30, 2011. The line expires on February 28, 2014.
The Companys operating assets and liabilities consist primarily of accounts receivable, cash, borrowings under line of credit, accounts payable, and deferred revenue. Changes in these balances are affected principally by the timing of sales, collections and vendor payments. The Company purchases approximately 97% of its product from one principal supplier and its distributors, which provide the Company with credit to finance those purchases.
For the year ended June 30, 2012, net cash provided by operating activities was $2,753,000, compared with cash used in operating activities of $955,000 during the year ended June 30, 2011. The increase in cash provided by operating activities from the year ended June 30, 2012 to the year ended June 30, 2011 was due mainly to the profitability of the Company, with some offsetting changes in accounts receivable, accounts payable, prepaid expenses and deferred revenue.
Approximately $2,192,000 of cash was used in investing activities during the year ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1,600,000 of cash provided by investing activities during the year ended June 30, 2011. In February 2012, the Company acquired Inlet Technology, LLC for $1,552,000 in cash and its cash purchases of equipment for
the year ended June 30, 2012 were $640,000 as compared with $523,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. The Company acquired $2,123,000 of cash during the year ended June 30, 2011 as a result of the Merger.
For the year ended June 30, 2012, net cash used in financing activities was $1,149,000 compared to $325,000 of net cash provided by financing activities during the year ended June 30, 2011. The difference was a result of the Company paying down its the outstanding line of credit balance and capital lease obligations using cash from operating activities during the year ended June 30, 2012.
Because the Company is one of the largest resellers of Autodesk software and because Autodesk has continued to state its intention to continue to strengthen its relationships with its resellers, the Company expects to continue to be a leading seller of Autodesk software. The Company is a party to a Value Added Reseller Agreement with Autodesk effective February 1, 2010. The agreement provides for an initial term of 12 months that, subject to certain requirements and termination rights of the parties, automatically renews on an annual basis for two additional 12 month periods. The agreement designates the Company as an authorized reseller of Autodesk software and prescribes the authorized sales territories, authorized products and services, rebate and incentive program details and marketing support.
Off Balance Sheet Transactions
The Company is not party to any off-balance sheet transactions as defined in Item 303 of the SECs Regulation S-K.
The information required by this Item may be found immediately after the signatures to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures that is designed to provide reasonable assurance that information, which is required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and is accumulated and communicated to management in a timely manner. 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 design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. 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 also is 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; over time, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
An evaluation of the effectiveness of these disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2012 was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of the Companys management, including the Chief
Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer. Based on that evaluation, the Companys management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, has concluded that the Companys disclosure controls and procedures are, in fact, effective at the reasonable assurance level.
During the fourth quarter of the Companys last fiscal year, there was no change in the Companys internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Companys internal control over financial reporting.
As required by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, management has performed an evaluation and testing of the Companys internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012. Managements report on the Companys internal control over financial reporting is included in Item 8 of this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
The information required by this item is contained in the sections of the definitive Proxy Statement of the Company to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the Proxy Statement) entitled, ELECTION OF DIRECTORS (Proposal 1), EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE, and CORPORATE GOVERNANCE and is incorporated herein by reference.

Index to Audited Consolidated Financial Statements
The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Companys internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. The Companys internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Companys assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
This Annual Report on Form 10-K does not include an attestation report of the Companys registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting because managements report was not subject to attestation pursuant to Section 989G(a) of the recently-enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which permits the Company, as a smaller reporting company, to provide only this managements report.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated can provide only reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that the control systems objectives will be met. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their cost.
Management assessed the effectiveness of the Companys internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012 using the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on its assessment and the foregoing criteria, management has concluded that, as of June 30, 2012, the Companys internal control over financial reporting is effective.

To the Stockholders and Board of Directors
Rand Worldwide, Inc.
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Rand Worldwide, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the Company) as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders equity and cash flows for each of the years in the two year period ended June 30, 2012. Company management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements. 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 audit 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 their internal control over financial reporting. Our audit 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 purposes of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Companys 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, 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 Rand Worldwide, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended June 30, 2012, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation
Rand Worldwide, Inc. is a leading supplier in the design automation, facilities and data management software marketplace. Rand Worldwide also provides value-added services, such as training, technical support, hosted data archiving solutions and other consulting and professional services to businesses, government agencies and educational institutions worldwide.
Rand Worldwide, Inc. was previously known as Avatech Solutions, Inc. On August 17, 2010, Avatech Solutions, Inc. acquired all the outstanding common stock of a corporation then known as Rand Worldwide, Inc. in a reverse merger and then changed its name to Rand Worldwide, Inc. on January 1, 2011. Even though Avatech Solutions, Inc. was the legal successor in the merger, the pre-merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. was considered to be the continuing entity for financial statement reporting purposes. As a result of the merger and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP), the consolidated financial statements represent a continuation of pre-merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. Thus, the results for the year ended June 30, 2011 include the results of pre-merger Rand Worldwide for the full year and those of Avatech Solutions, Inc. since August 17, 2010, while the results for the year ended June 30, 2012 are those of the combined post-merger Company. All intercompany accounts and transactions between the two corporations and their consolidated affiliated companies have been eliminated in consolidation. See Note 2 for further information regarding this transaction and basis of presentation. Unless otherwise indicated, all references in the remainder of these Notes to the consolidated entity are identified herein as the Company or Rand Worldwide.
Effective January 1, 2011, the Company changed its official stock ticker symbol from AVSO.OB to RWWI.OB.
The Company is organized into three divisions: IMAGINiT Technologies (IMAGINiT), Enterprise Applications, and ASCENTCenter for Technical Knowledge (ASCENT). Executive management performs their primary analyses based upon geographic location and operations by geographic segment are disclosed within Note 18.
The IMAGINiT division is one of the largest value-added resellers of Autodesk, Inc. (Autodesk) products in the world, providing Autodesk solutions and value-added services to customers in the manufacturing, infrastructure, building, and media and entertainment industries and also sells its own proprietary software products and related services, enhancing its total client solution offerings. IMAGINiT operates from locations across North America, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia.
The Enterprise Applications division is the non-Autodesk component of the business and offers various products and services including data archiving solutions, facilities management solutions, as well as training for Dassault Systèmes and PTC (Parametric Technology Corporation) products including CATIA, ENOVIA and Pro/ENGINEER.
ASCENT is the courseware division of Rand Worldwide and is a leading developer of professional training materials and knowledge products for engineering software tools.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Inventory consists of packaged computer software and is stated at the lower of first-in, first-out cost, or market.
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment is stated at cost. Depreciation for computer software and equipment and office furniture and equipment is provided for by the straight-line method over estimated useful lives ranging from three to seven years. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the lease term or the useful life of the asset using the straight-line method. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets Excluding Goodwill
Long-lived assets, excluding goodwill, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset or group of assets may not be fully recoverable. These events or changes in circumstances may include a significant deterioration of operating results, changes in business plans, or changes in anticipated future cash flows. If an impairment indicator is present, the Company evaluates recoverability by a comparison of the carrying amount of the assets to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the assets. Assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are identifiable cash flows that are largely independent of the cash flows generated by other asset groups. If the assets are impaired, the impairment recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the assets. Fair value is generally determined by estimates of discounted cash flows. The discount rate used in any estimate of discounted cash flows would be the rate required for a similar investment of like risk.
Goodwill is the excess of the purchase price paid over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired in purchase business combinations. The Company accounts for goodwill in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 350 Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Under ASC 350, goodwill is subject to annual impairment tests or more frequently when events and circumstances occur indicating that recorded goodwill may be impaired. Impairment is the condition that exists when the carrying amount of goodwill exceeds its implied fair value. The implied fair value of goodwill is the amount determined by deducting the estimated fair value of all tangible and identifiable intangible net assets of the reporting unit to which goodwill has been allocated from the estimated fair value of the reporting unit. If the recorded value of goodwill exceeds its implied value, an impairment charge is recorded for the excess.
The carrying amount of goodwill was $15,954,000 and $15,240,000 as of June 30, 2012 and 2011.
Stock Options and Stock Granted to Employees
The Company applies ASC 718-10, Share-Based Payment, which requires companies to measure the cost of share-based awards to employees based on the grant-date fair value of the award using an option pricing model, and to recognize that cost over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the fair value of stock options granted to employees and recognizes the compensation cost of employee share-based awards in its statement of operations using the straight-line method over the vesting period of the award, net of estimated forfeitures.
The use of the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of share-based awards requires that the Company make certain assumptions and estimates for required inputs to the model, including (i) the fair value of the Companys common stock at each grant date, (ii) the expected volatility of the Companys common
stock value based on industry comparisons, (iii) the expected life of the share-based award, (iv) the risk-free interest rate, and (v) the dividend yield. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Black-Scholes option pricing model was developed for estimating the fair value of traded options which have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected stock price volatility.
Revenue Recognition and Accounts Receivable
The Companys revenue recognition policies are in accordance with ASC 985-685, SoftwareRevenue Recognition, and ASC 605-20, Revenue Recognition.
Revenue from product sales and the sale of developed software is recognized when the following four criteria are met: (i) an executed proposal or signed purchase order has been obtained; (ii) delivery of the software has occurred; (iii) the fee is fixed or determinable; and (iv) the fee is probable of collection. Software product sales billed and not recognized as revenue are included in deferred revenue. The Company generally does not require collateral for accounts receivable. The Company allows returns from customers in limited situations. The Company has historically not experienced significant returns, and accordingly, allowances for returned products are not recorded.
For revenue derived from license fees for packaged software products, the Company follows ASC 985-605, Software-Revenue Recognition, and ASC 605-10, Revenue Recognition. The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of software licenses and training materials upon shipment of the products, provided that evidence of the arrangement exists, the arrangement fee is fixed or determinable, and collection of the related receivable is probable and free of contingencies.
Revenue from installation, training and consulting services is recognized upon completion of the requested service, which typically occurs within ninety days of receipt of an order. Support services are sold either in prepaid blocks of hours which typically expire in one year, or as annual contracts for unlimited support for a specified number of users and products supported. Prepaid support service revenue is recognized monthly based upon usage with unused balances recognized in full upon expiration. Annual support contract revenues are recognized ratably over the contract period. Revenue from the Rand Secure Archive hosted data archiving solution is recognized ratably over the contract period. Installation and consulting services provided by the Company are not considered essential to the functionality of any software products sold as those services do not alter the functionality or capabilities of the product and could be performed by customers or other vendors.
Fees earned from the resale of Autodesks software support agreements are reported as commission revenue and presented net of their related costs. For these transactions, the Company considers Autodesk to be the primary obligor in the arrangement as Autodesk has the responsibility of providing the end-customer all the deliverables under the contract, including software upgrades and various support services. As a result, the Company assumes an agency relationship in these transactions, and recognizes the net fee associated with serving as an agent in revenue.
The Company earns a fixed rebate from its primary supplier, Autodesk, for its qualifying renewal subscriptions, which increase gross profits and the corresponding commission revenues on such sales. The rebates on renewal subscriptions are paid monthly and are accrued in accordance with ASC 605-50, Customer Payments and Incentives, in the month the underlying sales are posted.
Commissions revenue also includes referral fees paid by Autodesk for major account and government customer transactions, determined based on specified percentages of the amount billed by Autodesk to the referred customer. These referral fees are recorded as revenue in the period earned, based on reporting by Autodesk, and are typically settled within ten days following the end of the reporting period.
The Companys arrangements with its customers may involve the sale of one or more products and services at the same time. The Company considers these to be multiple elements of a single arrangement. The Company follows ASC 605-25, Multiple-Element Arrangements for new and materially modified arrangements originating on or after July 1, 2010. We allocate the total arrangement consideration to each separable element based on the relative selling price of each element in accordance with selling price hierarchy, which includes: vendor specific objective evidence (VSOE) if available; third party evidence (TPE) if VSOE is not available; and best estimate of selling price if neither VSOE nor TPE is available. In general, the Company uses VSOE to allocate the selling price to each element. Arrangement consideration allocated to undelivered elements is deferred until delivery of the individual elements.
Fixed or Determinable Fee
Management assesses whether the total fee payable to the Company for the order is fixed or determinable and free of contingencies at the time of delivery. Management considers the payment terms of the transaction, including whether the terms are extended, and its collection experience in similar transactions that did not require concessions, among other factors. If the total consideration payable to the Company is not fixed or determinable, revenue is recognized only as payments become due from the customer, provided that all other revenue recognition criteria are met.
Customer Acceptance Criteria
If an arrangement includes customer acceptance criteria, the Company defers all revenue from the arrangement until acceptance is received or the acceptance period has lapsed, unless those acceptance criteria only require that the product perform in accordance with the software vendors standard published product specifications. If a customers obligation to pay the Company is contingent upon a future event, such as installation or acceptance, the Company defers all revenue from the arrangement until that event has occurred.
Deferred product revenue is comprised of amounts that have been invoiced to customers upon delivery of a product, but are not yet recognizable as revenue because one or more of the conditions required for revenue recognition have not yet been met. Deferred service revenue represents amounts invoiced to customers for telephone support contracts or maintenance and support contracts, which are recognized ratably as revenue over the term of the arrangements, or for installation, training or professional services that have not yet been performed.
The Companys arrangements with customers do not contain any rights of product return, other than those related to standard warranty provisions that permit replacement of defective goods. As of June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, the Company had no reserve recorded for product returns because such returns have been insignificant.
Shipping and Handling Fees
The Company records as revenue any amounts billed to customers for shipping and handling costs and records as cost of revenue its actual shipping costs incurred.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
The Company uses estimates to determine the amount of the allowance for doubtful accounts necessary to reduce accounts receivable to its expected net realizable value. The Company estimates the amount of the required allowance by reviewing the status of past-due receivables and analyzing historical bad debt trends. Actual collection experience has not varied significantly from estimates, due primarily to credit policies, collection experience, and a lack of concentration of accounts receivable. The Company charges-off receivables deemed to be uncollectible to the allowance for doubtful accounts.
Cost of Product Sales
Cost of product sales consists of the cost of purchasing products from software suppliers or hardware manufacturers as well as the associated shipping and handling costs. The Company earns a volume incentive rebate from its primary supplier, Autodesk, paid monthly as a percentage of qualifying purchases. The rebate percentage is established based on quarterly purchasing volume. These rebates serve to reduce the cost of product sales. The Company accrues its rebates the month the underlying sales are posted, in accordance with ASC 605-50, Customer Payments and Incentives. The Company has generally been able to focus its sales efforts in a manner to achieve margins on its product sales that are within a relatively narrow range period to period.
Cost of Service Revenue
Cost of service revenue consists primarily of direct employee compensation of all service personnel, the cost of subcontracted services and direct expenses billable to customers. Cost of service revenue does not include an allocation of overhead costs.
Advertising and Marketing Costs
The Companys marketing activities performed and executed over the course of the year include public relations, tradeshows, email campaigns, social media, website development and enhancement, marketing automation initiatives, virtual events, advertising and promotions as well as ongoing branding efforts. The Company receives funding from its primary vendor, Autodesk, which offsets a portion of the costs incurred for marketing and advertising. Marketing and advertising costs are expensed as incurred, net of vendor funding and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying statements of operations. Advertising expenses, net of reimbursements from suppliers, were immaterial for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011.
Comprehensive Income (Loss)
Comprehensive income (loss) is comprised of two components: (i) net income (loss); (ii) and foreign currency translation adjustments. During the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, unrealized currency translation (losses) gains of $(283,000) and $569,000, respectively, were recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income within stockholders equity.
The Company uses the liability method to account for income taxes. Income tax expense includes income taxes currently payable and deferred taxes arising from temporary differences between financial reporting and income tax bases of assets and liabilities. Deferred income taxes are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. Income tax expense, if any, consists of the taxes payable for the current period. Valuation allowances are established when the realization of deferred tax assets are not considered more likely than not. The Company records liabilities from uncertain tax positions in accordance with ASC 740-10, Income Taxes. The Company believes that its income tax filing positions taken or
expected to be taken in its tax returns will more likely than not be sustained upon audit by the taxing authorities and does not anticipate any adjustments that will results in a material adverse impact on the Companys financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax position have been recorded. Interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits are recorded as part of income tax expense. The Companys income tax returns for the past three years are subject to examination by tax authorities, and may change upon examination.
Foreign Currency Translation
Assets and liabilities of the Companys foreign subsidiaries, whose functional currencies are the respective local currencies, are translated into U.S. dollars at the current rates of exchange in effect at the balance sheet dates. Revenues and expenses are translated using the average exchange rates for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are included as a separate component of stockholders deficit in the consolidated balance sheets within accumulated other comprehensive income. Foreign currency transaction gains or losses resulting from the re-measurement of monetary assets and liabilities stated in a currency other than the functional currency are included in the Companys results of operations.
In addition, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, realized currency transaction losses from operations of $(97,000) and $(244,000), respectively, were recorded in the statement of operations.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income (ASU 2011-05). ASU 2011-05 requires entities to report components of comprehensive income in either (1) a continuous statement of comprehensive income or (2) two separate but consecutive statements. Under the two statement approach, the first statement would include components of net income, and the second statement would include components of other comprehensive income. This ASU does that change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income. These provisions are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011 and for interim period within those fiscal years; however, early adoption is permitted. The adoption of the provisions of ASU 2011-05 are not expected to have a material impact on the Companys consolidated financial statements.
In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-12, Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update 2011-05. ASU 2011-12 defers only those changes in ASU 2011-05 that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments. The Board has reinstated the requirements for the presentation of reclassification out of accumulated other comprehensive income that were in place before the issuance of Update 2011-05. The adoption of the amendments of ASU 2011-12 are not expected to have a material impact on the Companys consolidated financial statements.
In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. The amendments in the Update will enhance disclosures required by U.S. GAAP by requiring improved information about financial instruments and derivative instruments that are either (1) offset in accordance with either Section 2010-20-45 or Section 815-10-45 or (2) subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after January 1, 2013 and for interim period within those fiscal years. The amendments of ASU 2011-11 are not expected to have a material impact on the Companys consolidated financial statements.
Certain prior year financial statement amounts have been reclassified to confirm to the current year presentation.
2. Reverse Merger Transaction
On August 17, 2010, the Company, then known as Avatech Solutions, Inc., acquired all the outstanding common stock of a corporation then known as Rand Worldwide, Inc. as a result of a merger. Pre-merger Rand Worldwide, Inc. was also a software reseller in the design automation marketplace. The Company believes the merger expanded its overall geographic presence and increased its market share.
In consideration for the merger, the stockholders of pre-merger Rand Worldwide received shares of Avatech common stock representing approximately 66% of the outstanding shares of Avatech common stock and Avatechs stockholders retained approximately 34% of the outstanding shares of Avatech common stock. When calculated based on the number of shares of Avatech common stock outstanding on a fully diluted basis, the common stock issued to the pre-merger Rand Worldwide stockholder was equal to approximately 59% of the total common equivalent shares as of the date of the merger. As the pre-merger Rand Worldwide stockholder acquired more than 50% of the outstanding shares of Avatech common stock, Rand Worldwide was deemed, for accounting and SEC reporting purposes to be the continuing reporting entity. As such, the consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2011 include the accounts of pre-merger Rand Worldwide for the full year and those of Avatech since August 17, 2010, while the consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2012 are those of the combined post-merger Company. Balances reported for prior periods reflect the accounts of pre-merger Rand Worldwide only. Additionally, the equity structure of Rand Worldwide has been restated for balance sheet dates prior to the merger using the exchange ratio established in the acquisition agreement to reflect the number of shares of Avatech Solutions, Inc. common stock issued in the merger.
RWWI Holdings, LLC (RWWI Holdings) was formed in the recapitalization by the stockholders of pre-merger Rand Worldwide prior to the merger to hold their interests in Avatech. Accordingly, RWWI Holdings holds 66% of the outstanding shares of the Company. RWWI Holdings is not part of the Companys consolidated group.
Recognized amounts of identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed
The Company accounted for the transaction using the acquisition method in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. Accordingly, the consideration has been allocated to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based upon their respective estimated fair values on the acquisition date. The Companys allocation of the total consideration transferred of $14,226,000 is summarized below:
Identifiable intangible assets
Fair values for the trade name and customer list were determined based on the income approach. The following table presents certain information on the acquired identifiable intangible assets:
Goodwill is calculated as the excess of the consideration transferred over the net assets recognized and represents the future economic benefits arising from other assets acquired that could not be individually identified and separately recognized. These benefits include expansion opportunities and increased presence in the design automation marketplace.
Pro FormaFinancial Information
The following reflects the unaudited pro forma combined results of operations for the year ended June 30, 2011 of Avatech and Rand Worldwide as if the acquisition had taken place as of July 1, 2010:
In connection with the merger, during the year ended June 30, 2011, Avatech and pre-merger Rand Worldwide incurred combined non-recurring costs of $2,251,000, including $932,000 in professional fees, $873,000 in severance costs, $233,000 in accrued lease costs for office closings, $151,000 due to accelerated vesting of stock options, $30,000 for the corporate name change and $32,000 in additional board fees. The $2,251,000 of non-recurring costs are included in the proforma results shown above, however only $1,893,000 of such costs are included in the consolidated statement of operations for the year ended June 30, 2011, because $358,000 of these costs were incurred by Avatech prior to the merger.
3. Supplemental Disclosure of Cash Flow Information
The Company paid interest of approximately $236,000 and $245,000, respectively, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, and paid federal and state taxes of approximately $503,000 and $372,000, respectively, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011. Total purchases of property and equipment were approximately $640,000 and $566,000, respectively, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011. Total purchases of property and equipment included non-cash purchases of $1,051,000 and $43,000, respectively, for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011.
4. Business Combinations
Acquisition of Inlet Technology
On March 1, 2012, the Company acquired all of the net assets of Inlet Technology, LLC (Inlet) a Virginia Beach-based value added reseller. The purchase price was $1,300,000, plus a post-closing adjustment of $252,000 for increases in the working capital level since the previous balance sheet date. The purchase price and working capital adjustment were paid in cash. Goodwill of 794,000 and other intangible assets of $480,000 were recorded as a results of this acquisition. The goodwill is the results of exected synergies from combining the operations of the acquired business with the Companys operation and intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition, such as an assembled workforce. The impact of this acquisition was not material to the Companys consolidated balance sheets and results of operations.
The other intangible asset resulting from this acquisition was the Inlet customer list. The estimated fair value of this list was $480,000 as of the acquisition date, and the carrying amount was $448,000 at June 30, 2012. The customer list has an estimated useful life of five years and future expected amortization expense is approximately $96,000 per year for fiscal years 2013 through 2016 and $64,000 for fiscal year 2017.
On July 31, 2012, the Company acquired certain assets of Informative Design Partners (IDP) for an intial payment of $1 million, comprised of $600,000 in cash and $400,000 in common stock, plus contingent consideration to be paid over three years based on earnings achieved from the acquired business.
5. Borrowings Under Line of Credit
On February 29, 2012, the Company entered into an $8 million line of credit facility, including a $1,000,000 sublimit for the issuance of standby or trade letters of credit with PNC Bank, National Association. The interest rate is the Eurodollar Rate, which is calculated by using the LIBOR rate, plus a margin of 2.0%. The interest rate as of June 30, 2012 was 2.2%. The Company had outstanding borrowings from the bank under its credit line of approximately $3.1 million as of June 30, 2012 and had $3.9 million outstanding as of June 30, 2011. The Company has pledged its U.S. trade accounts receivable as collateral against the line of credit. The line expires on February 28, 2014.
6. Preferred Stock
The Companys preferred stock included in the equity section of the accompanying consolidated balance sheets consists of the following as of June 30, 2012 and 2011:
Convertible Preferred Stock
At June 30, 2003, the Company had issued and outstanding 172,008 shares of Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the Series C shares). On December 31, 2003, the Series C shares were converted into 484,487 shares of newly authorized Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the Series D shares). In 2004, the Company issued 813,050 shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock for cash proceeds totaling $330,000 and a reduction in notes payable to a related party of $98,000. In connection with the issuance of Series D shares, 1,730,043 warrants were granted to preferred shareholders. The warrants, which expired December 31, 2004, entitled the holder to purchase common stock at an exercise price of $0.45 per share up to one year after the date of grant. At June 30, 2012, 384,495 shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock were outstanding, respectively, with the following terms:
Redemption Feature- The Series D shares are redeemable in the event that the Company is engaged in a business combination that is approved by the Board of Directors and subsequently submitted and approved by a vote of the Companys stockholders. The terms of the merger with pre-merger Rand Worldwide did not trigger any redemption provisions of the Series D shares. Any director who holds shares of Series D is not eligible to vote on the proposed business combination. The redemption price is $0.30 (upon conversion) per share plus an amount equal to all declared and unpaid dividends accrued on such shares since the original issue date.
Voting Rights- Each holder of the Series D shares shall vote together with all other classes and series of stock of the Company as a single class on all actions. Each share shall entitle the holder to one vote per share of common stock into which the preferred stock is then convertible on each such action. In addition, these holders have special voting rights in connection with certain matters, including the issuance of senior stock or debentures, certain mergers, the dissolution of the Company and any amendment to the charter or the terms of the securities that would impair their rights.
Dividend Rate- The holders of the Series D shares are entitled to receive cumulative dividends at a rate of 10% per annum when and as declared by the Board of Directors. Dividends are paid quarterly to preferred stockholders.
Conversion Feature- The Series D shares are convertible at any time beginning 120 days after the original issuance date at the option of the holder and automatically converts into common stock if the common stock trades for more than $2.25 per share for 60 consecutive trading days. Each Series D share is convertible into shares of common stock by multiplying the appropriate conversion rate in effect by the number of shares of preferred stock being converted. As of June 30, 2012, the conversion rate would yield two shares of common stock for each share of Series D share; however, this rate may be adjusted due to stock splits, dividends, and other events defined in the stock purchase agreement between the Company and the holders of the Series D shares.
Liquidation Preference- In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, the holders of Series D shares are entitled to receive for each share, prior and in preference to any distribution of any of the assets or surplus funds to the holders of common stock, an amount equal to $0.60 per share plus all accumulated but unpaid dividends. If upon the occurrence of such event, the assets and funds thus distributed among the holders are insufficient to permit the payment of the preferential amount, then the entire assets and funds of the Company legally available for distribution shall be distributed ratably among the preferred stockholders.
In July 2005, the Company issued 1,191 shares of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock which raised $1,191,000 for working capital purposes. In connection with this issuance, the Company granted 366,475 warrants to purchase its common stock at an exercise price of $0.65 per share which expired on July 29, 2008. At June 30, 2012, 862 shares of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the Series E shares) were outstanding, respectively, with the following terms:
Redemption Feature- The Series E shares are redeemable in the event that the Company is engaged in a business combination that is approved by the Board of Directors and subsequently submitted and approved by a vote of the Companys stockholders. The terms of the merger with pre-merger Rand Worldwide did not trigger any redemption provisions of the Series E shares. Any director who holds shares of Series E is not eligible to vote on the proposed business combination. The redemption price is $0.65 per share (upon conversion) plus an amount equal to all declared and unpaid dividends accrued on such shares since the original issue date.
Voting Rights- Each holder of the Series E shares shall vote together with all other classes and series of stock of the Company as a single class on all actions. Each share shall entitle the holder to one vote per share of common stock into which the preferred stock is then convertible on each such action. In addition, these holders have special voting rights in connection with certain matters, including the issuance of senior stock or debentures, certain mergers, the dissolution of the Company and any amendment to the charter or the terms of the securities that would impair their rights.
Dividend Rate- The holders of the Series E shares are entitled to receive cumulative dividends at a rate of 10% per annum when and as declared by the Board of Directors. Dividends are paid quarterly to preferred stockholders.
Conversion Feature- The Series E shares are convertible at any time beginning 120 days after the original issuance date at the option of the holder and automatically converts into common stock if the common stock trades for more than $2.25 per share for 60 consecutive trading days. Each Series E share is convertible into shares of common stock by multiplying the appropriate conversion rate in effect by the number of shares of preferred stock being converted. As of June 30, 2012, the conversion rate would yield 1,538.5 shares of common stock for each share of Series E; however, this rate may be adjusted due to stock splits, dividends, and other events defined in the stock purchase agreements between the Company and the holders of the Series E shares.
Common Stock Warrants- Each holder of Series E shares received common stock warrants which give the holder the right to purchase 307.7 shares the Companys common stock for each Series E share held. The exercise price of the warrants was $0.65 per share and they expired on June 28, 2008.
Liquidation Preference- In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, the holders of Series E shares are entitled to receive for each share, prior and in preference to any distribution of any of the assets or surplus funds to the holders of common stock, an amount equal to $0.65 per share (upon conversion) plus all accumulated but unpaid dividends. If upon the occurrence of such event, the assets and funds thus distributed among the holders are insufficient to permit the payment of the preferential amount, then the entire assets and funds of the Company legally available for distribution shall be distributed ratably among the preferred stockholders.
7. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net earnings available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Such outstanding shares include those issued through Employee Stock Compensation Plans, Board compensation, and the exercise of stock warrants. Diluted earnings (loss) per common share include the potential dilution that would occur from common shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants and the conversion of preferred stock. As of June 30, 2012, 5,577,684 shares of common stock were issuable upon the conversion or exercise of options and preferred stock. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, there were 1,427,860 and 6,620,768 shares of common stock equivalents, respectively, excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because their effect would have been antidilutive. The following summarizes the computations of basic and diluted earnings per common share:
8. Intangible Assets
The following is a summary of the carrying amount, accumulated amortization and the resulting net book value of intangible assets:
June 30, 2012
June 30, 2011
Amortization expense for intangible assets for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011 were $678,000 and $824,000, respectively. Future estimated amortization expense for intangibles assets is as follows: $691,000 in 2013, $660,000 in 2014, $639,000 in 2015, $610,000 in 2016, $567,000 in 2017 and $3,109,000 thereafter.
9. Director and Employee Stock Compensation Plans
Employee Stock Option Plans
All common stock options outstanding for pre-merger Rand Worldwide were converted into options to purchase membership interests in RWWI Holdings, an entity which is not part of the Companys consolidated group.
The Board of Directors may grant options under the Avatech Solutions, Inc. 2002 Stock Option Plan (the Plan) to purchase shares of the Companys common stock at an exercise price of not less than the fair market value of the common stock on the date of grant. The Plan provides for the granting of either incentive or non-qualified stock options to purchase an aggregate of up to 3,100,000 shares of common stock to eligible employees, officers, and directors of the Company. At the Companys Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on November 9, 2011, stockholders approved an amendment to the Plan increasing the aggregate number of shares reserved for issuance upon the exercise of options by 3,700,000, for a total of 6,800,000 shares. Stock options generally expire after 10 years. Options generally vest ratably over the requisite service period of three or four years, depending on the specific grant award. As of the date of the merger with pre-merger Rand Worldwide, all of the outstanding stock options issued by Avatech became fully vested in accordance with their respective option agreements.
The Company recorded and included in selling, general and administrative expenses, $190,000 and $44,000 of stock compensation expense for the years ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011. Stock compensation expense for the year ended June 30, 2011 included $5,000 of expense prior to the merger for the vesting of common stock options granted by pre-merger Rand Worldwide, and $39,000 of expense for stock options granted after the merger.
The following are the assumptions made in computing the fair value of stock-based awards:
Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Companys common stock. The expected term of options granted represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee termination within the valuation model. The risk-free rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.
A summary of stock option activity during the year ended June 30, 2012 and related information is included in the table below:
The aggregate intrinsic value of options exercised was $23,400 during the year ended June 30, 2012. No options were exercised during the year ended June 30, 2011.
All options granted have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Companys common stock on the date of grant. Exercise prices for options outstanding as of June 30, 2012 ranged from $0.17 to $2.20 as follows:
Assuming that no additional share-based payments are granted after June 30, 2012, $786,000 of compensation expense will be recognized in the consolidated statement of operations over a weighted-average period of 3.2 years.
Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Avatechs Board of Directors adopted, and its stockholders subsequently approved, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the ESPP), under which, as amended, 2,000,000 shares of common stock are reserved for issuance. As of June 30, 2011, 790,555 shares were available for future issuance. Effective January 1, 2011, the plan was suspended.
As of June 30, 2012, there was no liability for employees ESPP withholdings, as all shares of common stock purchased under the ESPP had been issued.
Restricted Stock Award Plan
In May 2003, the Companys Board of Directors adopted, and its stockholders subsequently approved, the Avatech Solutions, Inc. Restricted Stock Award Plan, which was amended and restated on August 23, 2005 (the Stock Plan). Officers, directors, key employees and consultants of the Company are eligible to receive stock awards under the Stock Plan, but employees and consultants may receive grants only if they already are stockholders or hold options to purchase shares of common stock at the time of grant. Vesting for restricted stock awards granted under the Stock Plan may vary, but awards will generally vest based on continued service of the recipient or achievement of specific performance goals. The Company has reserved a total of 1,200,000 shares of common stock for issuance under the Stock Plan and 193,921 shares were available for future issuance as of June 30, 2012.
10. Shares Reserved for Future Issuance
At June 30, 2012, the Company has reserved 2,022,183 shares of common stock for future issuance upon the exercise of stock options granted under the Stock Option Plan, the exercise of outstanding common stock purchase warrants, the vesting of restricted stock awards, purchases under the ESPP and the conversion of Series D Stock, and Series E Stock.
11. Income Taxes
The components of income before income taxes are as follows:
The components of the income tax provision (benefit) are as follows:
Significant components of the Companys deferred tax assets and liabilities are as follows:
The Companys provision for income taxes resulted in effective tax rates attributable to loss from continuing operations that varied from the statutory federal income tax rate of 34%, as summarized in the table below.
The Company recorded tax (benefit) expense of $(4,022,000) and $186,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively.
The income tax benefit recorded during fiscal year 2012 was the result of recognizing as a deferred tax asset the realizable portion of the Companys U.S. net operating loss carryforwards. The Company previously had reserved a valuation allowance against the entire amount of net operating loss carryforwards, recognizing no deferred tax asset because it did not have a sufficient history of profitable operations to support the recognition of the asset. Since the Company has now established a sufficient history of consecutive profitable quarters, and projects continuing taxable profits, the valuation allowance against the U.S. net operating loss carryforwards was reduced in the fourth fiscal quarter by $4.3 million to recognize the portion of the net operating loss carryforwards projected to be utilized prior to expiration. The Company continues to maintain a valuation allowance on the entirety of its U.S. capital loss carryforwards and state net operating loss carryforwards due to uncertainty about its ability to utilize such carryforwards.
As of June 30, 2012, the Companys U.S. federal net operating loss carryforwards available to reduce future taxable income were $41.0 million, expiring at various dates through 2030. The company has recorded a valuation allowance on $25.3 million of these carryforwards because they are subject to annual limitations under Internal Revenue Code Section 382 and are expected to expire before being utilized. For tax year June 30, 2012, it is projected that approximately $3.5 million of net operating loss carryforwards will be utilized to offset taxable income in the current year.
In addition, as of June 30, 2012, the Company had foreign net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $19.6 million available to reduce future taxable income, and net deferred tax assets of $6.8 million. The carryforwards expire between 2011 and 2029 for some jurisdictions; for other jurisdictions, the losses may be carried forward indefinitely. The Company maintains a valuation allowance on the entire amount of its foreign deferred tax assets due to insufficient history of profitable operations.
