CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Report”) contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We claim the protection of the safe harbor contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Our forward-looking statements relate to future events or our future performance and include, but are not limited to, statements concerning our business strategy, future commercial revenues, market growth, capital requirements, new product introductions, expansion plans and the adequacy of our funding. Other statements contained in this Report that are not historical facts are also forward-looking statements.  You can sometimes identify forward-looking statements by our use of forward-looking words like “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “seeks,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these terms and other similar expressions and terminology.

We caution investors that any forward-looking statements presented in this Report, or that we may make orally or in writing from time to time, are based on the beliefs of, assumptions made by, and information currently available to us. Although we believe that the plans, objectives, expectations and intentions reflected in or suggested by our forward-looking statements are reasonable, those statements are based only on the current beliefs and assumptions of our management and on information currently available to us and, therefore, they involve uncertainties and risks as to what may happen in the future. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that our plans, objectives, expectations or intentions will be achieved. Our actual results, performance (financial or operating) or achievements could differ from those expressed in or implied by any forward-looking statement in this Report as a result of many known and unknown factors, many of which are beyond our ability to predict or control, and those differences may be material.  These factors include, but are not limited to, those described under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed on March 26, 2012 and amended on April 30, 2012, including without limitation the following:

 
our ability to successfully implement hospitals under contract but not yet implemented;
 
 
the early stage of adoption of our Safety-Sponge® System and the need to expand adoption of our Safety-Sponge® System;

 
the impact on our future revenue and cash flow from the Forward Order (described herein) and ordering patterns of our exclusive distributor, Cardinal Health, Inc;
 
 
our need for additional financing to support our business;
 
 
our reliance on third-party manufacturers, some of whom are sole-source suppliers, and on our exclusive distributor;

 
any inability to successfully protect our intellectual property portfolio; and

 
the impact on our revenues and financial position from managing our growth, including the initial costs typically associated with hospital implementations.

This Report and all other written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained in or referred to in this section.

Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and should not be relied upon as representing our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions as of any subsequent date. Although we may elect to update or revise forward-looking statements at some time in the future, we specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, even if our plans, objectives, expectations or intentions change.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements (Unaudited)

1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. (the "Company", “us”,“we”) is a Delaware corporation. The Company’s operations are conducted through its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, SurgiCount Medical, Inc. (“SurgiCount”), a California corporation.

The Company’s operating focus is the development, marketing and sales of products and services focused in the medical patient safety markets.  The SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System is a patented system of bar-coded surgical sponges, SurgiCounter™ scanners, and software applications integrated to form a comprehensive counting and documentation system.  This system is designed to reduce the number of retained surgical sponges unintentionally left inside of patients during surgical procedures by allowing faster and more accurate counting of surgical sponges.

2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and applicable sections of Regulation S-X and do not include all the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The condensed consolidated interim financial information is unaudited but reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary to make the financial statements not misleading. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from the Company’s audited financial statements. The condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (as amended).  Results of the six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012.

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiary.  All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reclassifications
 
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the 2012 presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported results of operations or accumulated deficit.

Use of Estimates

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).  The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions include, but are not limited to, assessing the following: the valuation of accounts receivable and inventory, impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, the fair value of stock-based compensation, valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets, warranty obligations, provisions for returns and allowances and the determination of assurance of the collection of revenue arrangements.

Patient Safety Technologies, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

Revenue Recognition

Revenue related to surgical products is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, collectability is reasonably assured and risk of loss transfers, usually when products are shipped.  Advanced payments are classified as deferred revenue and recognized as product is shipped to the customer.  Reimbursements related to scanners and related equipment provided to hospitals are recognized on a straight-line basis over the expected term of the related customer contract, while the cost of the scanners and related equipment is carried in hardware equipment within property, plant and equipment and depreciated as a component of cost of revenue over its estimated useful life. Generally, the expected term of the customer contracts and the estimated useful life of the scanners are both 3 years.  Provisions for estimated future product returns and allowances are recorded in the period of the sale based on the historical and anticipated future rate of returns.  Revenue is recorded net of any rebates given to the buyer.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market on the first-in, first-out (FIFO) basis. Inventory consists of the Company's sponge and towel product as well as scanners and related hardware used in the Safety Sponge System ®.  The FIFO cost for all inventories approximates replacement cost.
 
The Company maintains reserves for excess and obsolete inventory resulting from the potential inability to sell its products at prices in excess of current carrying costs. The markets in which the Company operates are highly competitive, and new products and surgical procedures are introduced on an ongoing basis. Such marketplace changes may cause the Company’s products to become obsolete. The Company makes estimates regarding the future recoverability of the costs of these products and records a provision for excess and obsolete inventories based on historical experience and expected future trends.
 
Property and Equipment

Property and equipment is stated at cost. The Company's property and equipment consists mainly of scanners and related hardware used in the Safety Sponge System ® which are located at our customer facilities for their use at no additional cost. Depreciation expense associated with this hardware is recorded in cost of revenue. Depreciation is amortized straight-line over the estimated useful lives of three to seven years. Upon retirement or disposition of equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation or amortization is removed and a gain or loss is recorded, as applicable.
 
3. LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

Loss per common share is determined by dividing the loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The Company complies with FASB (“Financial Accounting Standards Board”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260-10 Earnings Per Share, which requires dual presentation of basic and diluted loss per share on the face of the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Basic loss per common share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per common share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if convertible preferred stock, options and warrants were to be exercised or converted or otherwise resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the entity.

For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, shares associated with the convertible preferred stock plus only the warrants and options of 17,026,203 and 18,452,419, respectively, have a value in excess of the average stock price during the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Because the effects of these securities are anti-dilutive, shares of common stock underlying these instruments have been excluded from the computation of loss per common share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

Depreciation expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $422 thousand and $708 thousand, of which $393 thousand and $650 thousand was recorded as hardware cost of revenues, respectively. Depreciation expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 was $121 thousand and $251 thousand, of which $109 thousand and $215 thousand was recorded as hardware cost of revenue, respectively.

5. DEFERRED REVENUE

The Company generally provides its SurgiCounter™ scanners and related software to most hospitals at no cost when they adopt its Safety-Sponge® System. Under the Company's existing distribution agreement with Cardinal Health, Inc. (“Cardinal Health”), Cardinal Health has agreed to reimburse the Company for a percentage of the scanner costs supplied to certain hospitals. Payments received from Cardinal Health relating to scanner cost reimbursements are deferred, and recognized as revenue on a pro-rata basis over the life of the scanner (which approximates the term of the hospital purchase commitment).
 
6. STOCKHOLDER’S EQUITY

Issuance of Common stock

On May 18, 2012 the Company closed a financing transaction pursuant to a Common Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) dated May 15, 2012 with certain accredited investors (the “Buyers”), most of whom are previous purchasers of the Company’s securities and all of whom are accredited investors, including Wenchen ("Wayne") Lin, a member of the Company’s Board of Directors, as defined under Rule 501(a) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company issued to the Buyers an aggregate of 2,499,998 shares of our Common Stock at a purchase price of $1.40 per share (or $3,499,997 in gross proceeds), payable in cash. The Company incurred common stock issuance costs of approximately $65 thousand.

The use of proceeds is general corporate purposes.
 
Registration Rights Agreement

As contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, on the Closing Date the Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with the Buyers, (the “Registration Rights Agreement”).  Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company agreed to file a registration statement to register the Stock issued to the Buyers in the Financing within 45 days, and have such registration statement declared effective within 150 days of the Closing Date. In addition to the foregoing mandatory registration, the Company also granted to the Buyers demand and “piggyback” registration rights.  The Company has agreed to pay substantially all of the costs and expenses related to the filing of the registration statement and any underwritten public offering required pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement. The mandatory registration was filed on Form S-1 on July 2, 2012 and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on July 16, 2012 and the Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement for three years after the registration statement becomes effective.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements

The total grant date fair value of stock options granted for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $65 thousand and $406 thousand, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, stock option based compensation was $195 thousand and $395 thousand, respectively.

The total grant date fair value of stock options granted during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 was $7 thousand and $81 thousand, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 stock option based compensation was $187 thousand and $336 thousand, respectively.

As of June 30, 2012, there was $1.8 million of unrecognized compensation costs related to outstanding employee stock options. This amount is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.48 years. To the extent the forfeiture rate is different from what the Company anticipated, stock-based compensation related to these awards will be different from the Company’s expectations.

9. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

A Plus International, Inc.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 the Company purchased approximately $1.9 million and $4.8 million in connection with the manufacture of surgical products used in the Safety-Sponge® System by A Plus International, Inc. (“A Plus”), of which the vast majority was recognized in cost of revenue. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company’s accounts payable included $3.0 million and $1.2 million owed to A Plus in connection with the purchase of surgical products used in the Safety-Sponge® System, respectively. Wayne Lin, a Director and significant beneficial owner of the Company is a founder and significant owner of A Plus.
 
10. MAJOR CUSTOMERS, SUPPLIERS, SEGMENT AND RELATED INFORMATION
 
Major Customers

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, due to its exclusive distribution agreement with Cardinal Health, the Company had one customer which for both periods represented in excess of 99% of total revenue, and 99% (of which 54% related to receivables on surgical sponge and towel sales and 45% related to reimbursements for hardware costs) of total accounts receivables.

Suppliers

The Company relies primarily on a third-party supplier, A Plus, to supply the surgical sponges and towels used in its Safety-Sponge® System. The Company also relies on a number of third parties to manufacture certain other components of its Safety-Sponge® System.  If A Plus or any of the Company’s other third-party manufacturers cannot, or will not, manufacture its products in the required volumes, on a cost-effective basis, in a timely manner, or at all, the Company will have to secure additional manufacturing capacity. Any interruption or delay in manufacturing could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and operating results.

Furthermore, all products obtained from A Plus are manufactured in China.  As such, the supply of product from A Plus is subject to various political, economic, and other risks and uncertainties inherent in importing products from this country, including among other risks, export/import duties, quotas and embargoes, domestic and international customs and tariffs, changing taxation policies, foreign exchange restrictions, and political conditions and governmental regulations.

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

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements and the related notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto and the description of our business appearing in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (as amended).  This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. See “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements”. 

Overview

We focus on the development, marketing and sale of products designed to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs in the healthcare industry. We conduct our business through our wholly owned subsidiary, SurgiCount Medical, Inc. Our proprietary Safety-Sponge® System is a patented solution designed to eliminate one of the most common errors in surgery, retained surgical sponges, and the human and economic costs associated with this surgical mistake.  The Safety-Sponge® System consists of a line of uniquely identified surgical sponges and towels and a turnkey hardware and software offering integrated to form a comprehensive accounting and documentation system. We generate recurring revenue derived from the sale of surgical sponges and towels to our customer facilities that utilize our products in surgical procedures. We estimate that since inception of the Safety Sponge System® over 101 million of our Safety-Sponges® have been successfully used in more than 4.8 million surgical procedures. We sell our Safety-Sponge® System to hospitals through our direct sales force and by leveraging the sales and marketing capabilities of our distribution partners.  Our proprietary line of surgical sponges and towels are manufactured for us by our exclusive manufacturer, A Plus, a leading China-based manufacturer of disposable medical and surgical supplies. Our sponge and towel products are distributed through Cardinal Health, which provides us sales, marketing and logistics support and the fulfillment of our products to our end user hospitals by both delivering our products directly to our end user hospitals and where appropriate through alternative distributors. As of the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and as of the date of the filing of this Report we had approximately 215 and 235 facilities using the Safety-Sponge® System, respectively, all of which are located in the U.S. This compares to approximately 77 facilities using our system as of the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Although not necessarily proportionally related to future revenue, growth in the number of hospitals using our products is a good indicator of our underlying business. Once implemented, the vast majority of our user hospitals use the Safety-Sponge® System across all of their relevant surgical and OB/GYN procedures.
 
We generated revenues of $7.5 million and $4.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The first two quarters of 2011 revenue included approximately $1.1 million of revenue from the fulfillment of a $10.0 million stocking order in accordance with the terms of our exclusive distributor arrangement with Cardinal Health (the “Forward Order”). There was no revenue reported in the first two quarters of 2012 from fulfilling the Forward Order. Under certain circumstances the Forward Order inventory held by Cardinal Health could negatively impact our future 2012 and 2013 revenues and cash flows.  Please refer to our section in this Form 10-Q below in the section called “Factors Affecting Past and Future Results— Cardinal Health Supply Agreement” for more information on the potential impact of the Forward Order.

Factors Affecting Past and Future Results

140+ Hospital Integrated Delivery Network Agreement
 
On September 28, 2011, the Company announced that it signed an agreement, effective October 1, 2011, to implement the SurgiCount Safety-Sponge ® System in one of the largest hospital operators in the U.S.  Though the agreement itself does not call for or require a minimum number of hospitals, SurgiCount and the operator are actively planning for the implementation of the Safety-Sponge® System across all of the more than 140 hospitals that it operates. To date, the Company has successfully implemented the Safety-Sponge ® System in approximately 70% of these hospitals, with the remaining hospitals expected to be implemented by the end of the quarter ending September 30, 2012. The addition of these incremental hospitals will significantly expand the Company's installed base of customer facilities.
 
Cardinal Health Supply Agreement
 
In November 2006, we began an exclusive distribution relationship with Cardinal Health to supply hospitals that have adopted our Safety-Sponge® System with our sponge and towel products.  This original agreement had a term of 36 months, and automatically renewed for successive 12 month periods unless terminated early in accordance with its terms.

In November 2009, we renewed our distribution relationship with Cardinal Health through the execution of a new Supply and Distribution Agreement. This new agreement had a five-year term expiring in 2014 and names Cardinal Heath as our exclusive distributor in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada of the current sponge and towel products used in our proprietary Safety-Sponge® System.  Though Cardinal Health is our exclusive distributor in these geographical areas, the terms of our agreement with Cardinal Health do not limit the sales of our products to only direct customers of Cardinal Health. Our products are available to every hospital that wishes to purchase them through their existing distribution relationships, whether with Cardinal Health or a competitor.  In the event an end user hospital customer of ours does not have a distribution relationship with Cardinal Health, Cardinal Health then distributes our products directly to the alternative distributor that works with that hospital.

In connection with the execution of the new agreement in November 2009, Cardinal Health issued the Forward Order, which was a $10.0 million stocking purchase order for products used in our Safety-Sponge® System that called for deliveries of that stocking inventory over a 12-month period.  Cardinal Health initially paid us $8.0 million as partial pre-payment of the Forward Order, and agreed to pay $2.0 million directly to A Plus, to be used to pay for product that A Plus later invoiced us related to the Forward Order. Cardinal Health also agreed to maintain normal ordering patterns and volumes for purchasing our Safety-Sponge® products throughout 2010 and to not use any of the inventory delivered under the Forward Order to meet immediate hospital demand. In late 2010, Cardinal Health requested, and we agreed, to change the product mix of the Forward Order.  However, because the products Cardinal Health requested were not immediately available, Cardinal Health agreed to take delivery of the remaining inventory on a modified schedule. As of December 31, 2010 we had delivered approximately $8.9 million of the $10 million Forward Order, and we delivered the remaining $1.1 million of Forward Order inventory in the first half of 2011. 

In March 2011, Cardinal Health and the Company signed an amendment to the Supply and Distribution agreement. The Amended Supply and Distribution Agreement revised a number of terms and conditions of the previous agreement, including but not limited to extending the termination date of the agreement from November 19, 2014 to December 31, 2015 and adding certain terms and provisions regarding setting target inventory levels and defining a formula for determining the excess inventory of our products held by Cardinal Health. At that time Cardinal Health agreed to not sell any of the Forward Order inventory until calendar year 2012.  We also agreed to a methodology for the amount of the Forward Order inventory Cardinal Health would be able to sell to our customers each month, establishing a more orderly inventory release process that would help to minimize the impact this inventory release would have on our sales during 2012.

On September 28, 2011, we announced an agreement to implement the Safety-Sponge® System with a large hospital group with over 140 hospitals, with implementations stating in 2012 and expected to be completed by third quarter for fiscal year end 2012. The magnitude of this large implementation compelled us to prioritize our resources in order to scale up for costs associated with the large implementation, including needing to buy more sponge and towel inventory and scanners, as well as hiring and training more staff to support the implementations. As a result of this and other factors, management approached Cardinal Health in late 2011 to discuss the timing of when Cardinal Health would begin to release the Forward Order inventory. Cardinal Health agreed to delay the release of Forward Order inventory until April 1, 2012, to allow both sides additional time to negotiate a possible revision to the previously agreed upon terms, including for the release of the Forward Inventory. As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q was filed, no final agreement has been reached with Cardinal Health on changing the previously agreed upon terms, including setting a date to start releasing Forward Order inventory.  Cardinal Health also has not initiated any work off of Forward Order inventory.
 
Should Cardinal Health have any excess inventory on the date we mutually agreed for having Cardinal Health start releasing Forward Order inventory, and should Cardinal Health begin selling the excess inventory it holds to partially meet customer demand, our reported revenues and cash flows will be negatively affected. The magnitude of this negative impact on our 2012 and 2013 revenue and cash flows will depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to how much excess inventory Cardinal Health actually has on hand in 2012, whether the Company chooses to purchase some or all of this excess inventory, and what our actual sales growth rates are during 2012 and 2013. Actual sales during 2012 and 2013 will depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to actual end-user demand and Cardinal Health’s estimates of what inventory levels it needs to meet that demand.  Management has no immediate plans to repurchase Cardinal Health’s excess inventory. However we will consider this option should an appropriate opportunity arise. While we have not provided any estimates of what we expect 2012 or 2013 sales growth to be, in order to prevent a significant negative impact to our 2012 and 2013 revenue by Cardinal Health’s release of Forward Order inventory, (i) we would need to experience substantial growth in the number of hospitals using our products during 2012 and 2013, (ii) we would need to buyback any excess inventory from Cardinal Health, or (iii) Cardinal Health would need to decide not to use its excess inventory to partially meet customer demand.  If we were to buyback excess inventory from Cardinal Health, this also could have a significant negative impact on our earnings, financial position and our liquidity.

Hardware Effect on Revenue and Cost of Revenue

We generally provide our SurgiCounter™ scanners and related software to all hospitals at no cost when they adopt our Safety-Sponge® System. We generally no longer engage in direct SurgiCounter™ scanner sales and anticipate only recognizing revenue associated with our SurgiCounter™ scanners in connection with reimbursement arrangements we have with Cardinal Health under our agreement with them. We anticipate that there will be a shift in product mix based on the growing number of scanners that we have given customers out in the field, which will cause our gross margins to decline due to depreciation expense of these scanners being recorded in cost of revenue. However, we also anticipate that if we experience a significant increase in volume of surgical sponge revenue due to the growing number of implementations we have ongoing, it will eventually offset some of the effects of including growing depreciation expense for the scanners recorded in the cost of revenue.
 
Sources of Revenues and Expenses

Revenues
 
We generate revenue primarily from the sale of surgical sponges used in our Safety-Sponge® System to our exclusive distributor, who then sells directly and through sub-distributors to hospitals that have adopted our Safety-Sponge® System. We expect hospitals that adopt our Safety-Sponge® System to commit to its use and thus provide a recurring source of revenue from ongoing sales of surgical sponges and other products used in our system. We recognize revenue from the sale of surgical sponges upon shipment to our distributor because most of our surgical sponge sales are to our distributor, FOB shipping point. There is typically a delay between the time we begin incurring costs associated with our new customer arrangements and the time we begin generating revenue from such arrangements.
 
Cost of revenue
 
Our cost of revenue consists primarily of our direct product costs for surgical sponges and products from our exclusive third-party manufacturer. We also include a reserve expense for obsolete and slow moving inventory in cost of revenue. In addition, when we provide (rather than sell) scanners to hospitals for their use, we include only the depreciation expense of the scanners in cost of revenue (not the full product cost).  We estimate the useful life of the scanners to be three years. However, on rare occasions, if we sell the scanners to hospitals, our cost of revenues includes the full product cost when shipped.

Research and development expenses
 
Our research and development expenses consist of costs associated with the design, development, testing and enhancement of our products including sponges & towels, hardware and software. We also include salaries and related employee benefits, research-related overhead expenses and fees paid to external service providers in our research and development expenses. 
 
Sales and marketing expenses
 
Our sales and marketing expenses consist primarily of salaries and related employee benefits, sales commissions and support costs, professional service fees, travel, education, trade show and marketing costs.  Sales and marketing also includes our initial implementation costs, which consists mostly of contract labor for nurses specialized in operating room procedures who support customer hospital nurses in the field during the implementation of our system, their related travel expenses, and technical service fees.
 
General and administrative expenses
 
Our general and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries and related employee benefits, professional service fees, expenses related to being a public entity, and depreciation and amortization expense.
 
Total other income (expense)
 
Other income (expense) consists mostly of interest income earned or interest expense incurred.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosures in the financial statements. Critical accounting policies are those accounting policies that may be material due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment necessary to account for highly uncertain matters or the susceptibility of such matters to change, and that have a material impact on financial condition or operating performance. While we base our estimates and judgments on our experience and on various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.  We believe the following critical accounting policies used in the preparation of our financial statements require significant judgments and estimates.  For additional information relating to these and other accounting policies, see Note 2 to our condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue related to surgical products is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, when collectability is reasonably assured and when risk of loss transfers, usually when products are shipped. Advanced payments are classified as deferred revenue and recognized as product is shipped to the customer. Reimbursements related to scanners and related equipment provided to hospitals are recognized on a straight-line basis over the expected term life of the related customer contract, while the cost of the scanners and related equipment is carried in hardware equipment within property, plant and equipment and depreciated as a component of cost of sales over its estimated useful life. Provisions for estimated future product returns and allowances are recorded in the period of the sale based on the historical and anticipated future rate of returns. The Company records shipping and handling costs charged to customers as revenue and shipping and handling costs to cost of revenue as incurred.  Revenue is recorded net of any discounts or rebates given to the buyer.
 
Inventories, net
 
Inventory consists of finished goods and scanner hardware. Finished goods include sponge and towel product products ready for customer use or distribution. Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market value with cost determined under the first-in, first-out, or FIFO, method. Our estimate of the net realizable value of our inventories is subject to judgment and estimation. The actual net realizable value of our inventories could vary significantly from our estimates and could have a material effect on our financial condition and results of operations in any reporting period. In evaluating whether inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market, we consider such factors as the amount of inventory on hand and in the distribution channel, estimated time required to sell such inventory, remaining shelf life and current and expected market conditions, including levels of competition. On a quarterly basis, we analyze our inventory levels and record allowances for inventory that has become obsolete, inventory that has a cost basis in excess of its expected net realizable value and inventory that is in excess of expected demand based upon projected product sales.

Goodwill
 
Our goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the net tangible and intangible assets of SurgiCount Medical, Inc., which we acquired in February 2005. We review goodwill for impairment at least annually in the fourth quarter, as well as whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate its carrying value may not be recoverable. We first assess qualitative factors to determine if it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. Under ASU No. 2011-08, we assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that a reporting unit’s fair value is less than its carrying value, including goodwill. In the event we determine that it is more likely than not that our sole reporting unit’s fair value is less than its carrying amount, quantitative testing would be performed comparing recorded values to estimated fair values. As part of our goodwill qualitative testing process, we evaluate various factors to determine whether it is reasonably likely that management’s assessment would indicate a material impact on the fair value of our reporting unit. Examples of factors assessed in the qualitative approach are: cash flow forecasts of our reporting unit, the strength of our balance sheet, changes in strategic outlook or organizational structure, industry and market changes and macroeconomic indicators.
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
We recognize compensation expense in an amount equal to the estimated grant date fair value of each option grant, or stock award over the estimated period of service and vesting. This estimation of the fair value of each stock-based grant or issuance on the date of grant involves numerous assumptions by management. Although we calculate the fair value under the Black Scholes option pricing model, which is a standard option pricing model, this model still requires the use of numerous assumptions, including, among others, the expected life (turnover), volatility of the underlying equity security, a risk free interest rate and expected dividends. The model and assumptions also attempt to account for changing employee behavior as the stock price changes and capture the observed pattern of increasing rates of exercise as the stock price increases.  The use of different values by management in connection with these assumptions in the Black Scholes option pricing model could produce substantially different results.  
 
 
15

 
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
Our management reviews our long-lived assets with finite useful lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. We recognize an impairment loss when the sum of the future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be realized from the asset is less than its carrying amount. If an asset is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Considerable judgment is necessary to estimate the fair value of the assets and accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates. Our most significant estimates and judgments relating to the long-lived asset impairments include the timing and amount of projected future cash flows.
  
Accounting for Income Taxes
 
Deferred income taxes result primarily from temporary differences between financial and tax reporting. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement basis and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates. Future tax benefits are subject to a valuation allowance when management is unable to conclude that our deferred tax assets will more-likely-than-not be realized from the results of operations. Our estimate for the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets requires management to make significant estimates and judgments about projected future operating results. If actual results differ from these projections or if management’s expectations of future results change, it may be necessary to adjust the valuation allowance.
 
We have measured and recorded uncertain tax positions in accordance with rules that took effect on such date that prescribe a threshold for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  Accordingly, we now only recognize (or continue to recognize) tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold (or that met such threshold on the effective date).  Accounting for uncertainties in income tax positions involves significant judgments by management.  If actual results differ from management’s estimates, we may need to adjust the provision for income taxes.
 
Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP we disclose and discuss non-Forward Order revenues, a non-GAAP measure derived from results based on GAAP. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation of or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-Forward Order revenues should not be considered as an alternative to revenue (determined in accordance with GAAP) or as an indication of our performance, but we believe non-Forward Order revenues is important because it provides information about the current hospital customer demand for our product and the performance of our current operations by excluding the impact of the Forward Order revenue recognized. See discussion below in “Results of Operations”.

Adjusted working capital is a non-GAAP financial measure that management uses to assess the Company’s performance. Management believes adjusted working capital provides investors with an additional view of the Company’s liquidity and ability to repay current obligations. We calculate adjusted working capital as working capital (i.e., current assets less current liabilities, each as determined under GAAP) less deferred revenue, as deferred revenue relates to hardware reimbursement payments from Cardinal Health that are a non-cash liability. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation of or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. This calculation of adjusted working capital should not be considered as an alternative (determined in accordance with GAAP) or as an indication of our performance.  Our calculation of adjusted working capital, not including deferred revenue, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. See discussion below in “Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources”.

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2011
 
As of the end of the second quarter of 2012, the number of facilities using our Safety-Sponge® System grew to 215. This compares to approximately 77 facilities using the Safety-Sponge® System at the end of the second quarter of 2011, representing year-over-year growth in our installed customer base of 179%.  As of the date of this filing approximately 235 facilities are using the Safety-Sponge® System.  Although not necessarily proportional to future revenue, the number of hospitals using our products is a relevant general indicator of our underlying business.
 
Revenue
 
Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $4.4 million. This compares with total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of $2.6 million, representing year-over-year growth in reported quarterly revenue of 71%.  Second quarter 2011 revenue of $2.6 million included approximately $0.5 million of revenue from filling a $10 million Forward Order to our exclusive distributor, Cardinal Health.  There was no revenue reported from the delivery of Forward Order inventory during the second quarter of 2012.  Excluding the effect of the Forward Order revenue reported in second quarter of 2011, second quarter 2012 year over year revenue growth would have been 108%.  The primary reason behind this revenue growth was the rapid growth in the number of facilities now using our Safety-Sponge® System at the end of the second quarter of 2012.
 
We ended the second quarter of 2012 with minimal back orders of less than $20 thousand.  During the second quarter of 2012 we shipped the outstanding back order of $1.2 million that remained from the first quarter 2012.  For a number of reasons, such as timing of orders received from Cardinal Health and inventory availability, we expect to have outstanding backorders at the end of each quarterly reporting period. However the $1.2 million balance at the end of the first quarter 2012 was abnormally high compared to our historical end-of-period backorder levels, due to the timing of the receipt of a large number of orders from Cardinal Health late in the quarter and an unexpected delay in the receipt of inventory from our exclusive manufacturer to fulfill those late in-quarter orders.

Cost of revenue
 
Costs of revenue of $2.5 million increased by $1.2 million or 97% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to cost of revenue of $1.3 million for the same quarterly period in 2011. This increase was mostly from growth experienced in the number of new customer hospitals adopting our products.  In addition, our cost of revenue in the second quarter of 2012 was impacted by a growing amount of non-cash scanner hardware depreciation resulting from the fact that we provide, at no additional cost, scanner hardware to our customer facilities that implement our Safety-Sponge® System (see “Factors effecting Past and Future Results — Reduction in Hardware Revenue”).  Our cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue increased to 58% during the second quarter of 2012 as compared to 50% in the second quarter 2011.  This increase in cost of revenue was attributable to higher non-cash depreciation expense included in our cost of revenue in the second quarter of 2012, as compared to the second quarter of 2011. Depreciation expense included in the cost of sales grew from 4.3% of total revenue in Q2 2011 to 10.0% of total revenue in Q2 2012. This higher depreciation resulted from larger amounts of hardware being purchased to support rapid growth in new hospital implementations. Our cost of revenue during the second quarter 2012 included depreciation expense and other related scanner hardware equipment costs totaling $439 thousand, while our second quarter of 2011 cost of revenue included depreciation expenses of $110 thousand, a 299% increase.
 
Gross profit
 
Gross profit totaled $1.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $0.6 million, or 46%, compared to gross profit of $1.3 million during the second quarter of 2011.  In addition to concluding the Forward Order in the prior year, our gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was negatively impacted primarily by the higher non-cash depreciation expense associated with the larger number of new scanning equipment provided to new customers, and to a lesser extent, from higher pricing that we paid to our contract manufacturer for our sponge products to partially offset higher labor costs and exchange rate changes.

Operating expenses
 
Operating expenses totaled $2.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $0.7 million, or 41%, compared to $1.7 million of operating expenses during the same quarterly period in 2011. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher one-time costs associated with significantly more customer implementations during the second quarter 2012 as compared to the second quarter of 2011.  During the second quarter of 2012 we successfully implemented 65 new customer facilities, the most new customer facilities we have ever implemented during a three-month time period in our history.  This compares to 3 new customer facilities implemented during the second quarter of 2011.  Total one-time implementation costs in the second quarter of 2012 were approximately $0.5 million, as compared to approximately $0.1 million during the second quarter of 2011.  One-time expenses associated with implementing new customer facilities included utilizing per diem clinical and IT personnel for clinical and technical on-site customer support during the implementation process, along with the associated travel and other implementation related expenses. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2012 we continued the implementation of a new large hospital system customer comprised of over 140 hospital facilities that was originally initiated in the beginning of the first quarter of 2012.  The relatively fast pace with which we are implementing these new facilities is resulting in modestly higher per facility implementation costs than we otherwise would expect to incur.

Research and development expenses

Research and development expenses totaled $142 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $118 thousand, or 484%, compared to $24 thousand during the same quarterly period in 2011. The increase year-over-year increase in research and development expenses reflects management’s expansion of the investment in resources needed to improve and expand our product service offering. 
 
Sales and marketing expenses

Sales and marketing expenses totaled $1.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $410 thousand, or 61%, compared to $674 thousand during the same period in 2011. The increase in sales and marketing expenses during the second quarter of 2012 as compared to the prior year's second quarter was due primarily to the higher one-time implementation expenses to support new facility implementations as described above in Operating Expenses.
 
General and administrative expenses
 
General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses totaled $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, representing an increase of $167 thousand, or 17%, compared to G&A expenses of $1.0 million during the same quarterly period in 2011. The increase in G&A expenses during the second quarter 2012 as compared the second quarter of 2011 were due to adding modest headcount resources to support operations and public company compliance requirements.

Total other income (expense)

We reported other expense of $1 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, as compared to other income of $242 thousand for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  During the second quarter 2011 we had a gain of $227 thousand related to the reduction of our contingent tax liability.

Net loss
 
We had a net loss of $0.7 million applicable to common stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $0.3 million for the same quarterly period in 2011 based upon the explanations described above.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2011
 
Revenue
 
Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $7.5 million, which compares with total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $4.5 million, representing year over year growth in reported quarterly revenue of 65%.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011 revenue of $4.5 million included approximately $1.1 million of revenue from filling a $10 million Forward Order to our exclusive distributor, Cardinal Health. There was no revenue earned from the delivery of Forward Order inventory during the first two quarters of 2012.  When excluding the effect of the Forward Order revenue on the reported second quarter 2011 revenue, the second quarter 2012 year-over-year revenue growth would have been 117%.  The primary reason for this strong revenue growth is the successful growth in the number of new customer facilities using our Safety-Sponge® System.

Cost of revenue
 
Costs of revenue of $4.4 million increased by $2.1 million or 89% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to cost of revenue of $2.3 million for the same period in 2011. This increase was mostly from growth experienced in the number of new customer hospitals adopting our product. In addition, our cost of revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was impacted by a growing amount of scanner hardware non-cash depreciation expense resulting from the fact that we provide, at no additional cost, scanner hardware to our customer facilities that our Safety-Sponge® System (see “Factors effecting Past and Future Results — Reduction in Hardware Revenue”).  Our cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue increased to 59% during the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to 51% during the same period in 2011. This increase in cost of revenue was attributable primarily to higher non-cash depreciation expense included in our cost of revenue during the first two quarters of 2012, as compared to the same period of 2011. The higher depreciation expense reflected larger amounts of hardware that were purchased by us in order to support new hospital implementations. Our cost of revenue during the six months ended June 30, 2012 included depreciation expense and other related scanner hardware equipment costs totaling $711 thousand, while for the same period of 2011 it was $291 thousand, representing a 144% increase.

Gross profit
 
Gross profit totaled $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $0.9 million, or 40%, compared to gross profit of $2.2 million during the same period in 2011.  In addition to concluding the Forward Order in the prior year, our gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period ended June 30, 2011 was negatively impacted primarily by the higher non-cash depreciation expense associated with the larger number of new scanning equipment provided to new customers, and, to a lesser extent, from higher pricing we paid to our exclusive contract manufacturer beginning in January 2012 for our sponge products as a result of higher labor costs and exchange rate changes experienced in China.

Operating expenses
 
Operating expenses totaled $4.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $1.5 million, or 43%, compared to $3.4 million of operating expenses during the same period in 2011. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher one-time costs associated with a significantly larger number of new customer implementations during the first and second quarter of 2012 as compared to the same period of 2011.  During the six months ended June 30, 2012 we successfully implemented 116 new customer facilities, the most new customer facilities we have ever implemented during a six-month time period in our history.  This compares to 6 new customer facilities implemented during the first six months of 2011.  Total one-time implementation costs in the six months ended June 30, 2012 were approximately $1.2 million, as compared to approximately $0.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011. One-time expenses associated with implementing new customer facilities include utilizing per diem clinical and IT personnel for upfront staff clinical and technical on-site support during the implementation process, associated travel expenses and other implementation related expenses. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2012, we continued the implementation of a new large hospital system customer comprised of over 140 hospital facilities which was originally initiated in the first quarter of 2012. The relatively fast pace with which we are implementing these new facilities is resulting in modestly higher implementation costs than we otherwise would have expected to incur.
 
Research and development expenses

Research and development expenses totaled $289 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $236 thousand, or 438%, compared to $53 thousand during the same period in 2011. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to expanded investment in resources dedicated to improving and expanding our product offering. 
 
Sales and marketing expenses

Sales and marketing expenses totaled $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $1.1 million, or 79%, compared to $1.3 million during the same period in 2011. The increase in sales and marketing expenses during the first six months of the fiscal year of 2012 as compared to the prior year's same period was due primarily to the higher one-time implementation expenses to support new facility implementations during this period as described above in Operating Expenses.
 
General and administrative expenses
 
General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses totaled $2.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, representing an increase of $187 thousand, or 9%, compared to G&A expenses of $2.1 million during the same period in 2011. The slight increase in G&A expenses during the first fiscal quarters of 2012 as compared the same period in 2011 were due to adding modest headcount resources to support operations and public company compliance expenses.

Total other income (expense)

We reported other income of $3 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2012, a 99% decrease compared to other income of $448 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  During the six months ended June 30, 2011 we had recognized a gain of $223 thousand related to the reduction of our contingent tax liability and the gain of $224 thousand recognized from the mark to market adjustment for the change in fair value of our warrant derivative liability.

Net loss
 
We had a net loss of $2.1 million applicable to common stockholders for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $1.0 million for the same period in 2011 based upon the reasons described above.

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
We had cash and cash equivalents of $5.8 million at June 30, 2012 compared to $3.7 million at December 31, 2011.  As of June 30, 2012 we had total current assets of $10.6 million and total current liabilities of $6.3 million resulting in a positive working capital of $4.3 million, which compared to $4.0 million in positive working capital as of December 31, 2011. Current liabilities as of June 30, 2012 include deferred revenue of $1.6 million relating to hardware reimbursement payments from Cardinal Health, which is a non-cash liability. Excluding this non-cash liability, our current liabilities would have been $4.7 million as of June 30, 2012, giving us an adjusted positive working capital of $5.9 million.

We believe our sources of liquidity are sufficient to satisfy our anticipated cash requirements through the next 12 months as we expect the business to generate improved cash flow from operations as result of our growing installed base of customer facilities. We may seek financing to fund future growth for periods beyond the next 12 months, through future offerings of equity or debt, or through agreements with strategic partners to help fund our growth and the development of future products and technologies. However, we can offer no assurances that we will be able to obtain additional financing or agreements with strategic partners on acceptable terms, if at all. Management continually evaluates our liquidity needs and whether to increase capital resources. See Item 1A “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K (as amended) for the year ended December 31, 2011 for additional information on factors that could impact our future liquidity and capital resources.
 
Operating activities
 
We had positive net cash flow from operating activities of $1.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012. Our net loss of $1.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 included non-cash charges in the form of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation totaling$1.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2012.

Cash provided by working capital and other assets during the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1.9 million. Working capital is comprised primarily of accounts receivable, inventory, other assets, deferred revenue and other liabilities. Accounts receivable increased by $262 thousand or 20% during the six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to fiscal year end 2011, reflecting our increased non-Forward Order revenue. Inventory increased by $382 thousand or 14% during the six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to fiscal year end 2011, due to our new business growth and increased levels of safety stocks.  Accounts payable increased by $1.4 million or 50%, representing mostly the additional inventory of both sponges and hardware ordered for supporting our new business growth. Our increase in accounts payable also reflects extended payment terms that went into effect with certain key vendors helping to support our rapid new customer growth during the first six months of 2012. 

Deferred revenue of $1.6 million as of June 30, 2012 represents a significant non-cash component of our net loss, having increased by $1.1 million or 196% during the six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to fiscal year end 2011. This increase in deferred revenue was a result of the large increase in implementations during the first two quarters of 2012 and Cardinal Health’s agreement in certain situations to reimburse half of our hardware costs that are typically provided to our customers at no cost.

We used $2.8 million of net cash from operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2011.  This included payments totaling $2.2 million to our contract manufacturer, A Plus, to pay for past due amounts owed to them from previous periods, which we paid immediately upon receiving proceeds from our private placement which closed on March 29, 2011 and March 30, 2011.  Non-cash adjustments to reconcile net income to net cash used in operating activities, including balance changes in operating assets and liabilities, used a total of $2.0 million of cash for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  The $2.0 million of significant non-cash adjustments primarily reflected a $1.1 million decrease in our deferred revenue liability relating to our final shipments to Cardinal Health for filling the Forward Order, along with decreases of $223 thousand in our contingent tax liability and $225 thousand in our warrant derivative liability.
 
Investing activities
 
We used $3.0 million of net cash in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2012, almost entirely for the purchase of scanners and related hardware used for implementing our Safety-Sponge® System at new customers. This compares to using $204 thousand of net cash in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2011, which were also primarily for the purchase of scanners and related hardware for implementing our Safety Sponge® System at new customers.

Financing activities

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, we generated $3.9 million of net cash from financing activities primarily from the net proceeds from closing a $3.5 million private placement in May 2012, along with $470 thousand of proceeds received from the exercise of employee stock options, offset by the payment of preferred stock dividends and other stock issuance costs.

During the six months ended June 30, 2011, we generated $6.8 million of net cash from financing activities primarily from the net proceeds of $7.1 million from a private placement completed in March 2011, offset by the payment of preferred stock dividends and other stock issuance costs.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
As of June 30, 2012, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements.

Commitments and Contingencies
 
As of June 30, 2012, other than our office leases and employment agreements with key executive officers, we had no material commitments other than the liabilities reflected in our condensed consolidated interim financial statements.
