NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF BUSINESS AND GOING CONCERN

Environmental Solutions Worldwide, Inc. (the "Company" or "ESW") through its wholly-owned subsidiaries is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing and sales of emissions control technologies. ESW also provides emissions testing and environmental certification services with its primary focus on the North American on-road and off-road diesel retrofit market. ESW currently manufactures and markets a line of catalytic emission control and enabling technologies for a number of applications.

The unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern.

The Company has sustained recurring operating losses. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $53,438,194 and cash and cash equivalents of $78,556. During the year 2011 there were significant changes made to ESW’s business. These changes in operations, the relocation of the Company’s operations, and the prevailing economic conditions all create uncertainty in the operating results and, accordingly, there is no assurance that the Company will be successful in generating sufficient cash flow from operations or achieving profitability in the near future. As a result, there is substantial doubt regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company may require additional financing to fund its continuing operations. Financing may not be available at acceptable terms or may not be available at all. The Company's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on obtaining additional financing and achieving and maintaining a profitable level of operations.

Effective July 12, 2011, the Company raised a total of $4 million through the issuance of unsecured subordinated promissory notes (the “Notes”) to certain shareholders, including deemed affiliates of certain members of the Board of Directors of the Company. Proceeds from the Notes funded working capital related to its 2011 sales, capital investments and other general corporate purposes. Effective May 10, 2011, the Company entered into an Investment Agreement with certain of its current shareholders and subordinated lenders under unsecured promissory notes (the “Bridge Lenders") for an aggregate amount of $4 million. As per the Investment Agreement, the Bridge Lenders agreed to provide a backstop commitment (the "Backstop Commitment") to a rights offering targeted by the Company to raise up to $8 million (the “Qualified Offering"). Under the Backstop Commitment, the Bridge Lenders agreed to purchase any shares offered in the Qualified Offering that were not purchased by the Company's shareholders of record, after giving effect to any oversubscriptions.

Effective June 30, 2011 the Company completed its rights offering. The Company's shareholders subscribed to 38,955,629 shares including over subscriptions. Under the Qualified Offering shareholders subscribed to $4.7 million, which was subscribed for via cash ($1.9 million), and the exchange of principal and accrued interest on the Notes and the Bridge Loan Notes (approximately $2.8 million). Under the Backstop Commitment, the Bridge Lenders purchased 27,714,385 shares of Common Stock at price of $0.12 per share for approximately $3.3 million, of which $2.0 million was paid in cash and $1.3 million was paid for through the exchange of the balance of principal and accrued interest due on the Notes. As a result of these transactions, the Company satisfied its obligations with the Bridge Lenders and effectively cancelled the Notes effective June 30, 2011.

Effective July 18, 2011, ESW’s wholly-owned subsidiary ESW Canada Inc., paid its senior lender the amount of $1.5 million (Canadian dollars) from the proceeds of the rights offering to liquidate the outstanding balance on the bank loan. The senior lender has discharged all liens, encumbrances and securities against the Company and its subsidiaries and cancelled the June 30, 2010 demand revolving credit facility agreement.

Effective May 1, 2012 the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary ESW America Inc. received a $280,787 low interest loan from The Machinery and Equipment Loan Fund (“MELF”), which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. Proceeds from the loan were used to purchase and upgrade equipment at the air testing facility.

These unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. All adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items, considered necessary for fair presentation have been included in these unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements.

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION

The unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, ESW America Inc. ("ESWA"), ESW Technologies Inc. ("ESWT"), ESW Canada Inc. ("ESWC") and Technology Fabricators Inc. (“TFI”). All inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated on consolidation. Amounts in the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements are expressed in U.S. dollars.

Effective February 3, 2012 BBL Technologies Inc. (“BBL”), a non-operating subsidiary, filed for bankruptcy in the Province of Ontario, Canada. At the time of filing, BBL had no assets but had issued and outstanding redeemable Class A special shares. The Company did not provide any guarantee in relation to these redeemable Class A special shares. As a result of BBL’s filing for bankruptcy, the Company lost its control over BBL and has deconsolidated BBL from the unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements on the filing date. The Company recorded a $453,900 gain in the unaudited consolidated condensed statement of operations and comprehensive loss for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2012 upon deconsolidation of BBL.

ESTIMATES

The preparation of unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP 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 revenue and expense during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include amounts for inventory valuation, impairment of property plant and equipment, share-based compensation, valuation of the warrants, accrued liabilities and accounts receivable exposures.

ALLOWANCE FOR DOUBTFUL ACCOUNTS

The Company extends unsecured credit to its customers in the ordinary course of business but mitigates the associated credit risk by performing credit checks and actively pursuing past due accounts. An allowance for doubtful accounts is estimated and recorded based on management's assessment of the credit history with the customer and current relationships with them. On this basis management has determined that an allowance for doubtful accounts of $217,732 and $1,398 was appropriate as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market determined using the first-in, first-out method. Inventory is periodically reviewed for use and obsolescence, and adjusted as necessary. Inventory consists of raw materials, work-in-process and finished goods.

PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The Company capitalizes customized equipment built to be used in the future day to day operations at cost. Once complete and available for use, the cost for accounting purposes is transferred to property, plant and equipment, where normal depreciation rates apply.

PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT

Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally 5 to 7 years. Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Significant renewals and betterments are capitalized.

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

The Company follows the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 360, which requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets' carrying amounts may not be recoverable. In performing the review for recoverability, if future undiscounted cash flows (excluding interest charges) from the use and ultimate disposition of the assets are less than their carrying values, an impairment loss represented by the difference between its fair value and carrying value, is recognized. Properties held for sale are recorded at the lower of the carrying amount or the expected sales price less costs to sell. Management reviewed certain  assets for impairment in the first quarter of 2012 (see Note 6 for details).

PATENTS AND TRADEMARKS

Patents and trademarks consist primarily of the costs incurred to acquire them from an independent third party. Intangible assets with a finite life are tested for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset (or asset group) may not be recoverable. An impairment loss would be recognized when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.

Patents and trademarks were being amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated life of ten years. Amortization expense for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $0 and $16,145 respectively and amortization expense for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $0. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, patents and trademarks were fully written down and had $0 carrying value.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

Included in the ASC Topic 820 framework is a three level valuation inputs hierarchy with Level 1 being inputs and transactions that can be effectively fully observed by market participants spanning to Level 3 where estimates are unobservable by market participants outside of the Company and must be estimated using assumptions developed by the Company. The Company discloses the lowest level input significant to each category of asset or liability valued within the scope of ASC Topic 820 and the valuation method as exchange, income or use. The Company uses inputs which are as observable as possible and the methods most applicable to the specific situation of each company or valued item.

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and loan payable approximate fair value because of their short-term nature or current market rate for the loan payable with a fixed rate. Per ASC Topic 820 framework these are considered Level 2 inputs where inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument might be adversely affected by a change in the interest rates. In seeking to minimize the risks from interest rate fluctuations, the Company manages exposure through its normal operating and financing activities.

REVENUE RECOGNITION

The Company derives revenue primarily from the sale of its catalytic products. In accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the amount is fixed or determinable, risk of ownership has passed to the customer and collection is reasonably assured.

The Company also derives revenue (approximately 8.4% and 3.5% of total revenue during the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively) from providing air testing and environmental certification services. Revenues are recognized upon delivery of testing services when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured.

LOSS PER SHARE

Loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Common stock equivalents are excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share when their effect is anti-dilutive.

INCOME TAXES

Income taxes are computed in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, which requires, among other things, a liability approach to calculating deferred income taxes. The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in its financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement carrying amounts and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect in the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company is required to make certain estimates and judgments about the application of tax law, the expected resolution of uncertain tax positions and other matters. In the event that uncertain tax positions are resolved for amounts different than the Company's estimates, or the related statutes of limitations expire without the assessment of additional income taxes, the Company will be required to adjust the amounts of the related assets and liabilities in the period in which such events occur.

Such adjustments may have a material impact on ESW's income tax provision and results of operations.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING COSTS

The Company’s shipping and handling costs of $20,519 and $32,873 are included in cost of sales for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Additionally, the Company has recorded recoveries of these costs amounting to $13,496 and $20,372, which are included in revenues for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The Company’s shipping and handling costs of $47,062 and $57,160 are included in cost of sales for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Additionally, the Company has recorded recoveries of these costs amounting to $35,997 and $39,701, which are included in revenues for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

The Company is engaged in research and development work. Research and development costs are charged as operating expense of the Company as incurred. Any grant money received for research and development work is used to offset these expenditures. For the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company expensed $185,770 and $150,272, net of grant revenues, respectively, towards research and development costs. For the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company expensed $314,318 and $333,897, net of grant revenues, respectively, towards research and development costs.

For the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, gross research and development expense, excluding any offsetting grant revenues, amounted to $185,770 and $198,985, respectively, and grant money amounted to $0 and $48,713, respectively. For the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, gross research and development expense, excluding any offsetting grant revenues, amounted to $314,318 and $612,609, respectively, and grant money amounted to $0 and $278,712, respectively.

FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION

The functional currency of the Company and its foreign subsidiaries is the U.S. dollar. Most of the Company’s revenue and materials purchased from suppliers are denominated in or linked to the U.S. dollar. Transactions denominated in currencies other than a functional currency are converted to the functional currency on the transaction date, and any resulting assets or liabilities are further translated at each reporting date and at settlement. Gains and losses recognized upon such translations are included within foreign exchange gain (loss) in the unaudited consolidated condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

PRODUCT WARRANTIES

The Company provides for estimated warranty costs at the time of sale and accrues for specific items at the time their existence is known and the amounts are determinable. The Company estimates warranty costs using standard quantitative measures based on industry warranty claim experience and evaluation of specific customer warranty issues. The Company currently estimates warranty costs as 2% of revenue. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, $199,862 and $121,335, respectively, was accrued as warranty provision and included in accrued liabilities. For the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the total warranty, service, service travel and installation costs included in cost of sales were $95,824 and $13,101, respectively. For the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the total warranty, service, service travel and installation costs included in cost of sales were $142,434 and $93,733, respectively.

SEGMENT REPORTING

ESW operates in two reportable segments. ASC 280-10, "Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information", establishes standards for the way that public business enterprises report information about operating segments in the Company’s consolidated condensed financial statements. Operating segments are components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. ESW’s operating segments include manufacturing operations and air testing services (see Note 13). ESW’s chief operating decision maker is the Company’s Executive Chairman.

RESTRUCTURING CHARGES

In 2011 ESW underwent a significant restructuring of its operations. ESW recognizes restructuring expenses as they are incurred. ESW also evaluates the inventory and property, plant and equipment associated with restructuring actions for impairment. Asset impairment and accelerated depreciation expenses primarily relate to inventory write-downs for rationalized products and adjustments in the carrying value of the closed facilities to the Company’s estimated fair value. In addition, the remaining useful lives of other property, plant and equipment associated with the related operations were re-evaluated based on the respective plan, resulting in the impairment of certain assets. In accordance with ASC 420-10-25-11 costs to terminate an operating lease arise when a lessee will either: (a) terminate an operating lease; or (b) if it is unable to terminate the lease, discontinue its use of the asset and continue to make lease payments over the remaining term of the lease without benefit. When the lease will be terminated, the lessee should recognize a liability for the cost of terminating the lease at the time the lease is terminated. If the lease will not be terminated and the lessee will continue to incur costs under the lease without future benefit, the lessee should recognize a liability on the cease-use date (the date the lessee discontinues its use of the asset). In accordance with paragraphs 420-10-30-7 through 30-9, a liability for the remaining lease rentals, reduced by actual (or estimated) sublease rentals, would be recognized and measured at its fair value at the cease-use date. In accordance with paragraphs 420-10-35-1 through 35-4, the liability would be adjusted for changes, if any, resulting from revisions to estimated cash flows after the cease-use date, measured using the credit-adjusted risk-free rate that was used to measure the liability initially.

As disclosed in Note 12, the Company entered into an agreement with its former landlord for the full release of any future obligations under the lease agreement. 

COMPARATIVE FIGURES

Certain 2011 figures have been reclassified to conform to the current financial statement presentation.

NOTE 3 – RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENT

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2011-5 – “Comprehensive Income – Presentation of Comprehensive Income”.  This statement removed the presentation of comprehensive income in the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity.  The only two allowable presentations are below the components of net income in a statement of comprehensive income or in a separate statement of comprehensive income that begins with total net income.  The guidance was effective for interim or annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU had no effect on the Company's unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements.

NOTE 4 - CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

Cash and cash equivalents include cash and highly liquid investments purchased with an original or remaining maturity of 90 days or less at the date of purchase. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, all of the Company's cash and cash equivalents consisted of cash.

At March 31, 2012, the Company recognized an impairment loss for furniture, fixtures and office equipment located at its Canadian facility. The estimated recovery from the sale of furniture, fixtures and office equipment is expected to be nominal and, accordingly, the Company has valued these assets as $0 and recorded an impairment loss equal to the full amount of their carrying value.

NOTE 7 - REDEEMABLE CLASS A SPECIAL SHARES

At December 31, 2011, the redeemable Class A special shares that were issued by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, BBL, without par value, were redeemable on demand by the holder of the shares, which is a private Ontario Corporation, at $700,000 Canadian (historically translated to $453,900 at December 31, 2011). On February 3, 2012, BBL filed for bankruptcy and the redeemable Class A special shares were subsequently cancelled.

NOTE 8 - INCOME TAXES

As of June 30, 2012, there are tax loss carry forwards for Federal income tax purposes of approximately $40,715,966 available to offset future taxable income in the United States. The tax loss carry forwards expire in various years through 2031. The Company does not expect to incur a Federal income tax liability in the foreseeable future. Accordingly, a valuation allowance for the full amount of the related deferred tax asset of approximately $14,250,588 has been established until realizations of the tax benefit from the loss carry forwards meet the "more likely than not" criteria.

Additionally, as of June 30, 2012, the Company's two wholly-owned Canadian subsidiaries had non-capital tax loss carry forwards of approximately $2,844,864 available to be used, in future periods, to offset taxable income. The loss carry forwards expire in 2031. The deferred tax asset of approximately $753,889 has been fully offset by a valuation allowance until realization of the tax benefit from the non-capital tax loss carry forwards are more likely than not.

Valuation allowances reflect the deferred tax benefits that management is uncertain of the Company's ability to utilize in the future.

Based on the Company’s current tax loss position tax benefits to be recognized is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The Company does not believe there will be any material changes in its unrecognized tax positions over the next twelve months.

The Company will recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits within the income tax expense line in the unaudited consolidated condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss. Accrued interest and penalties will be included within the related tax liability line in the consolidated condensed balance sheets.

In many cases the Company's uncertain tax positions are related to tax years that remain subject to examination by tax authorities. The following describes the open tax years, by major tax jurisdiction, as of June 30, 2012:

NOTE 10 - STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANT GRANTS

STOCK OPTIONS

On April 15, 2010, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) granted an aggregate award of 900,000 stock options to a former executive officer and former director and one director. The options vest over a period of three years with an exercise price of $0.65 (fair market value of the Company's common stock as of the date of grant) with expiry of five years from the date of award. Effective February 7, 2011, with the resignation of a director, the unvested portion of the stock options was cancelled as a result of the resignation. The balance of the stock option expense of the April 15, 2010 award is as follows:

At June 30, 2012, the outstanding options have a weighted average remaining life of 25 months. All options issued prior to 2010 have vested, and the April 15, 2010 options vest over a period of three years, in three equal parts each year.

No stock options were granted for the six month period ended June 30, 2012. The weighted average fair value of options granted during 2011 was $0.02 and was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, using the following assumptions:

 

 

2011

Expected volatility

111%

Risk-free interest rate

0.42%

Expected life

1.5 yrs

Dividend yield

The Black-Scholes option-pricing model used by the Company to calculate options and warrant values was developed to estimate the fair value of freely tradable, fully transferable options without vesting restrictions, which significantly differ from the Company's stock purchase options and warrants. The model also requires highly subjective assumptions, including future stock price volatility and expected time until exercise, which greatly affect the calculated values.

LEGAL MATTERS

From time to time, the Company may be involved in a variety of claims, suits, investigations and proceedings arising from the ordinary course of our business, breach of contract claims, labor and employment claims, tax and other matters. Although claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and their results cannot be predicted with certainty, ESW believes that the resolution of current pending matters will not have a material adverse effect on its business, consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flow. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on ESW because of legal costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

CAPITAL LEASE OBLIGATION

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company’s capital lease obligation amounted to $0 and $1,241, respectively.

NOTE 13 – OPERATING SEGMENTS

The Company has two principal operating segments, air testing services and catalyst manufacturing. These operating segments were determined based on the nature of the products and services offered. Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision-maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The Company’s Executive Chairman has been identified as the chief operating decision-maker, and directs the allocation of resources to operating segments based on the profitability and cash flows of each respective segment.

The Company evaluates performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is net income. The accounting policies of the business segments are the same as those described in “Note 2: Summary of Accounting Policies.” No intersegment sales were made for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Environmental Solutions Worldwide Inc. ("we," "us," "ESW" or the "Company") is a publicly traded company engaged through its wholly-owned subsidiaries ESW Canada Inc. (“ESWC”), ESW America Inc. (“ESWA”), Technology Fabricators Inc. (“TFI”) and ESW Technologies Inc. (“ESWT”), (together the "ESW Group of Companies") in the design, development, manufacture and sale of emission technologies and services. ESW is currently focused on the international medium duty and heavy duty diesel engine market for on-road and off-road vehicles as well as the utility engine, mining, marine, locomotive and military industries. ESW also offers engine and after treatment emissions verification testing and certification services.

ESW's focus is to be an integrated solutions provider to the environmental emissions market by providing leading-edge catalyst technology as well as best-in-class engine and vehicle emissions testing and certification services. The Company's strategy is centered on identifying and deploying resources against its "sweet-spot" products, where ESW has identified its core competencies and differentiation in the marketplace. ESW's core geography focus is North America, and will opportunistically explore business development opportunities in other markets if accretive to the Company in the short term. By focusing financial, human and intellectual capital on ESW's core competencies and markets, the Company is targeting profitable growth in the short term and value creation for its shareholders over the long term.

ESW was incorporated in the State of Florida in 1987. Our principal executive offices are located at 200 Progress Drive, Montgomeryville, PA, 18936. Our telephone number is (905) 695-4142 and (215) 699 0730. Our website is www.cleanerfuture.com. Information contained on our website does not constitute a part of this 10-Q report.

In 2012, ESW continues to focus on optimizing the Company's operations around its "sweet spots" and capturing a greater market share in the catalytic converter and emissions testing markets whilst ensuring steps towards profitable growth. The key factors that are in ESW's favor are: (a) continued regulatory push for emissions reductions in the United States, (b) funding available from public agencies, (c) a market-leading Level III active catalytic converter technology and an established distribution network in North America, and (d) CARB and EPA certification and verification capable emissions and durability testing services.

ESW believes that it can improve and achieve profitability and grow its business by continuing to pursue the following strategy:

• Focus on delivering controlled and profitable growth to its shareholders.

• Provide integrated solutions to the emissions market by leveraging its product development, testing and certification services, and distribution and post-sale services capabilities.

• Center the Company's sales strategy around identified "sweet-spots" that will allow manufacturing efficiency gains and optimized resource allocation.

• Educate the end customers and regulatory agencies about the technology and ensure realistic delivery expectations.

• Enhance customer service functions.

• Work with vendors to optimize ESW's material buys and lead times.

• Constantly review operations, processes and products under a Continuous Improvement / Performance Based culture.


ESW has made significant investments in research and development and obtaining regulatory approvals for its technologies.

Effective July 16, 2012, the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) verified the ThermaCat-e Active Level III Plus Diesel Particulate Filter System targeted at EGR engines for retrofit on 1993 through 2009 On-Road engine model years, having engine displacement between 4 and 13 liters and a horse power (HP) rating between 150 to 400 HP. This new CARB Executive Order DE-12-005 extends the range of applications for the ThermaCat product line in step with the changing marketplace demands.

On August 23, 2011, ESW received notification from the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") that the Company's XtrmCat Kit is now certified for 2 stroke, Category 2, marine engines. The certifications are applicable to Electro-Motive Diesel (“EMD”) 710 and 645 engines. The XtrmCat can achieve Tier 0 and Tier I compliance as per 40 CFR 1042 when retrofitted to EMD 710 and 645 engines. ESW is pursuing opportunities to commercialize this technology into the marketplace.

ESW's XtrmCat product designed for locomotive, Tier 0, turbocharged EMD 645 and 710 engines was tested at an EPA recognized facility for certification during March and April 2011 along with the marine product together with a partner company. We are exploring opportunities to obtain certifications for the aforementioned locomotive engines.

ESW believes that with the additional certifications/verification of the above range of products, ESW will cover a significant portion of the market and give ESW the competitive advantage to be the technology of first choice in retrofit and OEM applications.

The cost of developing a complete range of products to meet regulations is substantial. ESW believes that it possesses a competitive advantage in ensuring regulatory compliance by leveraging its testing and research facility in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania to support its certification and verification efforts. Historically, ESW has also managed to offset some of these development costs through the application of research grants and tax refunds.

ESW made the following adjustments to its business in 2011 to improve its operational results in 2012, and continues to improve and adjust its strategy based on demand and business needs.

1) ESW has reviewed and continues to review its costs for inefficiencies and has taken steps to reduce its operating expenses. Key cost reduction initiatives during 2011 included the restructuring of its management team, the termination of certain contracts and the re-negotiation of board and consulting obligations, amongst others. In addition, during the second semester of 2011, ESW reduced its overhead costs by re-locating its Canadian manufacturing operations to its facilities located in Pennsylvania, United States and subsequently terminating its Lease Agreement in May 2012 under favorable settlement and release terms.  

ESW will continuously revisit opportunities to further streamline the business.

2) ESW is closely monitoring its bill of materials and costing and periodically revises pricing to its dealers to help recover product margins. ESW has also revised its overall commercial policies, including its general terms and conditions and lead time expectations on its products. Changes have also been implemented to ESW's costing and quoting processes, including frequent periodic review of its bill of materials and the proactive negotiation of raw material prices.

3) ESW is focusing on increasing sales volumes on its core "sweet spot" products to reduce production complexities and improve inventory management. ESW is has also implemented new continuous improvement programs such as the cross-functional "Product and Process Review" stream led by ESW's engineering team searching for product, product quality and product development process enhancements.

4) ESW has revisited relationships with critical vendors, in addition to setting up favorable payment plans to reduce the outstanding balances with these vendors. ESW has also secured and continues to secure volume discounts on critical components. ESW has also identified and engaged new vendors in the U.S. for parts supply. In addition, there is a greater focus on outsourcing opportunity for labor intensive parts.   

5) ESW has revised and implemented its new warranty policy to ensure that warranty terms and conditions meet industry standards whilst mitigating warranty risks to the fullest extent possible. ESW has also launched a backend website to assist its distributors and installers in day to day operations, training and processes.

6) ESW is in the process of continuously engaging its existing dealers to help better understand ESW's business and product positioning and to strengthen ESW's partnership with its distribution base. ESW is also opportunistically adding new independent emissions focused

       dealers to enhance the Company’s North American sales coverage.  ESW has made substantial inroad in  improving its dealership  network through the termination of and addition of certain dealers in states such as California,NewYork,Connecticut, NewJersey,  Pennsylvania  and Florida. 

 
        7) ESW is focusing on increasing revenue from testing services provided to third parties from its Air Testing Facility in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania.

     ESW’s Air Testing Services in Montgomeryville, PA continues to see a sizeable increase in business, in line with ESW’s effort to increase revenues from these operations.

COMPARISON OF THE SIX MONTH PERIOD ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 TO THE SIX MONTH PERIOD ENDED JUNE 30, 2011

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations (MD&A) should be read in conjunction with the MD&A included in ESW's Annual Report on Forms 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Revenues for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, decreased by 4.4 percent, to $4,875,705 from $5,100,585 for the comparable period in 2011. The decrease in revenue is related to reduced retrofit funding opportunities and lack of enforcement of regulations by regulatory agencies. The decrease in revenue was offset by increases in parts sales and sales of military product.  

Cost of sales as a percentage of revenues for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was 65.6 percent compared to 89.9 percent for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The reduction in cost of sales in the current period of 2012 versus 2011 is reflective of the changes that were implemented in the Company’s operations since February 2011, such as the streamlining of the Canadian manufacturing operations, ESW’s focus on optimizing pricing and its materials costs, and the changing product mix with the growing contribution of the Air Testing Services.  In addition, the six month period ended June 30, 2011 was negatively impacted by a write-down of inventory in the amount of $507,032. Consequently, gross margin for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 was 34.4 percent compared to 10.1 percent for the six month period ended June 30, 2011.

Marketing, office and general expenses for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased 7.1 percent to $1,865,510 from $2,007,565 for the same period in 2011. The decrease is primarily due to: (a) decrease in factory expense of $304,449 resulting from cost saving initiatives and higher factory overheads applied to cost of sales, (b) decrease in sales and marketing wages and selling expenses of $24,585, (c) a decrease in investor relation costs of $44,283 and (d) an offsetting grant of $75,000 related to a Job Creation Tax Credit from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. The decreases were offset by: (a) a provision for uncollectable accounts of $213,108 recorded for two distributors with whom the Company has a commercial dispute, (b) an increase in administration salaries and wages of $52,783, (c) an increase in facility expenses of $26,479 resulting from rent and costs related to the release of the Canadian facility, and (d) an increase in general administration expenses of $13,892 attributed to hiring expenses for new employees.

The Company incurred $0 and $523,274 as restructuring charges for the six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, respectively. The restructuring costs for the first six months of 2011 consisted primarily of severance, vacation payouts and other restructuring related agreements.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $19,579, or 5.9 percent, to $314,318 versus the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The primary driver of R&D expenses for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011 related to ESW's pursuit of the verification expansion of its Level III product. ESW benefitted during the first six month period of 2011 from grant money amounting to $278,712. During the six month period ended June 30, 2012 there was no grant funding to offset R&D cost.

Officers’ compensation and directors’ fees for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $95,395, or 23.4 percent, to $311,591 from $406,986 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. Included in the June 30, 2012 officers’ compensation and directors’ fees is $41,417 of stock-based compensation expenses for options issued in 2010 to a past officer and director. The decrease in fees is mainly due to changes in executive management and the board compensation structure of ESW.

Consulting and professional fees for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $11,843, or 8.0 percent, to $135,613 from $147,456 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The costs are fairly consistent to prior year expenses except for ongoing monthly accruals for the estimated 2012 annual audit fees as opposed to year end accruals in 2011.

Foreign exchange loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, was $43,043 as compared to a loss of $84,719 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. This is a result of the fluctuation in the exchange rate of the Canadian Dollar to the United States Dollar.

Depreciation and amortization expense for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $99,388, or 46.3 percent to $115,117 from $214,505 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. The depreciation costs for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 were substantially lower due to: (a) write-off of assets located in ESW’s Canadian operations as a result of the relocation of operations in 2011, (b) application of additional depreciation to cost of sales, (c) fully amortized patents, and (d) full depreciation for a portion of the assets.

The Company has valued the impairment loss at $28,945 for the balance of the office equipment, furniture and fixtures of ESW Canada Inc. as of June 30, 2012. The former landlord of the Canadian property terminated the lease for the facility as of May 1, 2012, and effective May 22, 2012, ESW Canada and its former landlord entered into an agreement for the full release of any future obligations under the prior lease agreement. For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company had valued the impairment loss at $311,304 related to the transfer of manufacturing operations to Pennsylvania, USA.


 
Loss from operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $2,375,687, or 67.6 percent, to $1,138,168 from $3,513,855 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. ESW’s loss from operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2012 included the following non-cash items: allowance for inventory obsolescence of $107,360, allowance for doubtful accounts of $213,108, depreciation expenses of $294,804, an impairment loss of $28,945 and stock based compensation expense of $41,417. In addition, cash costs of $153,034 related to the rent and other facility costs of the Canadian facility are included in loss from operations for the six month period ended June 30, 2012. This amount includes the expenses for the full release of the Canadian facility and its lease obligations.

Effective February 3, 2012 ESW’s wholly-owned non-operational subsidiary BBL Technologies Inc., (“BBL”) filed for bankruptcy in the Province of Ontario, Canada. Due to the insolvency of BBL, the redeemable Class A special shares were cancelled and the Company recorded a $453,900 gain on the Consolidated Condensed Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Loss.

In the six month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company incurred the following costs related to various financing and debt transactions:

•    $5,583                    -              Gain on disposal of property and equipment

 

No costs related to financing and debt transactions were incurred in the six month period ended June 30, 2012.

 

COMPARISON OF THE THREE MONTH PERIOD ENDED JUNE 30, 2012 TO THE THREE MONTH PERIOD ENDED JUNE 30, 2011

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following MD&A of financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the MD&A included in ESW's Annual Report on Forms 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Revenues for the three month period ended June 30, 2012, decreased by 23.3 percent to $2,344,103 from $3,054,847 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in revenue is related to reduced retrofit funding opportunities and lack of enforcement of regulations by regulatory agencies. The decrease in revenue was offset by increases in part sales and sales of a military product.

Cost of sales as a percentage of revenues for the three month period ended June 30, 2011 was 62.1 percent compared to 81.6 percent for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The reduction in cost of sales in the current period of 2012 versus 2011 is reflective of the changes that were implemented in the Company’s operations since February 2011, such as the streamlining of the Canadian manufacturing operations, ESW’s focus on optimizing pricing and its materials costs, and the changing product mix with the growing contribution of the Air Testing Services.  In addition, the three month period ended June 30, 2011 was negatively impacted by a write-down of inventory in the amount of $271,212. Consequently, the gross margin for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 was 37.9 percent compared to 18.4 percent for the three month period ended June 30, 2011.

Marketing, office and general expenses for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by 32.7 percent to $675,060 from $1,003,506 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The decrease is primarily due to: (a) decrease in factory expense of $69,931 resulting from cost saving initiatives and higher factory overheads applied to cost of sales, (b) decrease in in sales and marketing wages and selling expenses by of $100,345, (c) $29,448 decrease in general administration expenses, (d) decrease in facility expenses of $21,907 resulting from release of the Canadian facility in May 2012, (e) decrease in administration salaries and wages of $11,393, (f) decrease in investor relation costs of $20,422 and (g) an offsetting grant of $75,000 related to a Job Creation Tax Credit from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

The Company incurred $0 and $4,465 as restructuring charges for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The restructuring costs for the first six months of 2011 consisted primarily of severance, vacation payouts and other restructuring related agreements.

R&D expenses for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 increased by $35,498, or 23.6 percent, to $185,770 from $150,272 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The primary driver of R&D expenses for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 versus the comparable period in 2011 was related to ESW's pursuit of the verification expansion of its Level III product. In addition to the decrease, in the prior year three month period the Company received grant money amounting to $48,713. During the three month period ended June 30, 2012 there was no grant funding to offset R&D cost.


 
Officers’ compensation and directors’ fees for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by 20.9 percent to $154,484 from $195,342 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. Included in the June 30, 2012 officers’ compensation and directors’ fees is $20,709 of stock based compensation expenses for options issued in 2010 to a past officer and director. The decrease in fees is mainly due to changes in executive management and the board compensation structure of ESW.

Consulting and professional fees for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 increased by 9.6 percent to $79,629 from $72,661 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The increase is a result of a change in accrual for the annual audit costs, as the Company has started accruing the annual fees on an ongoing monthly basis for the estimated 2012 annual audit fees as opposed to an annual accrual in 2011.

Foreign exchange loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 was $11,612 as compared to a loss of $24,594 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. This is a result of the fluctuation in the exchange rate of the Canadian Dollar to the United States Dollar.

Depreciation and amortization expense for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by 58.7 percent to $38,935 from $94,155 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. The depreciation costs for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 were substantially lower due to: (a) write-off of assets located in ESW’s Canadian operations as a result of the relocation of operations in 2011, (b) application of additional depreciation to cost of sales, (c) fully amortized patents, and (d) full depreciation for a portion of the assets.

The Company did not recognize any impairment loss for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The former landlord of the Canadian property terminated the lease for the facility as of May 1, 2012, and effective May 22, 2012, ESW Canada and its former landlord entered into an agreement for the full release of any future obligations under the prior lease agreement. Loss on impairment of property plant and equipment for the three month period June 30, 2011 was $311,304 related to the transfer of manufacturing operations to Pennsylvania, USA.

Loss from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 decreased by $1,035,907, or 80.0 percent, to $258,197 from $1,294,104 for the three month period ended June 30, 2011. ESW’s loss from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 included the following non-cash items: allowance for inventory obsolescence of $107,360, depreciation expenses of $142,367, stock based compensation expense of $20,709, foreign exchange loss of $11,612 and a bad debt recovery of $979. In addition, cash costs of $19,230 related to the release of the Canadian facility including full release of lease obligations are included in the loss from operations for the three month period ended June 30, 2012.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

ESW's principal sources of operating capital have been the proceeds from its various financing transactions. During the six month period ended June 30, 2012, the Company used $1,005,746 of cash to sustain operating activities compared with $948,729 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $78,556 and $759,003, respectively.

Net cash used in operating activities for the six  month period ended June 30, 2012 amounted to $1,005,746. This amount was attributable to the net loss of $684,268, plus non-cash expenses such as depreciation, impairment loss, stock based compensation, gain on deconsolidation of BBL and others of $231,734, and a decrease in net operating assets and liabilities of $553,212. Net cash used in operating activities for the six month period ended June 30, 2011 amounted to $948,729. This amount was attributable to the net loss of $7,022,796, plus non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization, interest and accretion on long term debt, inducement premium on conversion of debentures and others of $4,661,834, and an increase in net operating assets and liabilities of $1,412,233.

Net cash used in investing activities was $292,869 for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, as compared to $28,544 used in investing activities for the six month period ended June 30, 2011.

Net cash provided by financing activities totaled $273,522 through a loan payable in the amount of $280,787 with repayment of $6,024 in principal and repayment under capital lease obligation amounting to $1,241 for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, as opposed to net cash provided by financing activities of $1,732,767 for the six month period ended June 30, 2011. In the prior year period of 2011, $4,000,000 was provided through the issuance of the notes payable to related parties, $373,615 was used towards costs of the Rights Offering which closed on June 30, 2011, $1,891,079 was repaid under ESW's CIBC credit facility and $2,539 was repaid under capital lease obligation. 


 
 

ESW operates in a capital intensive and highly regulated industry, where a long lead time to bring new products into market is considered normal. ESW continues to invest in research and development to improve its technologies and bring them to the point where its customers have a high confidence level to purchase our products.

During six month periods ended June 30, 2012 and in 2011, ESW did not produce sufficient cash from operations to support its expenditures. Prior financings supported the Company's operations during the period. ESW's principal use of liquidity relates to the Company's working capital needs and to finance any further capital expenditures or tooling needed for production and/or its testing facilities.

ESW anticipates certain capital expenditures in 2012 related to the general operation of its business as well as to upgrade the Air Testing Services facilities in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania.

Overall, capital adequacy is monitored on an ongoing basis by our management and reviewed quarterly by the Board of Directors.

Competition is expected to intensify as the market for ESW's products expands. ESW's ability to continue to gain significant market share will depend upon its ability to continue to develop strong relationships with regulators, distributors, customers and develop new products. Increased competition in the market place could result in lower average pricing which could adversely affect ESW's margins and pricing for its products.

ESW's ability to service its indebtedness, other obligations and commitments in cash will depend on its future performance and ability to raise capital, which will be affected by prevailing economic conditions, financial, business, regulatory and other factors. Certain of these factors are beyond ESW's control. ESW may need additional financing to meet its financial projections and obligations. Significant assumptions underlie ESW's projections, including, among other things, that ESW will be successful in implementing its business strategy, that some of ESW's products that have received verification from the appropriate regulatory authorities will obtain customer and market acceptance, and that there will be no material adverse developments in ESW's business, liquidity or capital requirements. If ESW cannot generate sufficient cash flow from operations to service its future indebtedness and to meet other obligations and commitments, ESW might be required to refinance or to dispose of assets to obtain funds for such purpose. There is no assurance that refinancing or asset dispositions or raising funds from sales of equity or otherwise could be effected on a timely basis or on satisfactory terms. In such circumstance, ESW would have to issue shares of its common stock as repayment of these obligations, which would be of a dilutive nature to ESW's present shareholders.

DEBT STRUCTURE

On April 25, 2012, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary ESWA entered into a Machinery and Equipment Loan Fund (“MELF Facility”) with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for up to $500,000 for the purchase of equipment and related purchases. Two (2) draw-downs are permitted under the MELF Facility by ESWA. The first draw-down of $280,787 was made under the MELF Facility in connection with equipment purchased by ESWA on April 25, 2012 (the “Closing Date”).  ESWA may make one (1) additional draw-down per the terms of the MELF Facility so that the aggregate amount borrowed under the MELF Facility may be up to $500,000. Terms of the MELF Facility include initial interest at three (3%) percent per annum with monthly payments and full repayment of the MELF Facility on or before the first day of the eighty fifth (85) calendar month following the Closing Date. As part of the loan agreement, within three years from the Closing Date ESWA is required to create, or retain, at its current location a certain number of jobs that is specified in the loan Application. A breach by ESWA in the creation or maintenance of these jobs shall be considered an event of default under the MELF Facility. In the event ESWA defaults on any payments, the MELF Facility may be accelerated with full payment due along with certain additional modifications including the increase in interest to twelve and one half (12 1/2%) percent. In connection with the MELF Facility, the Company entered into a Guaranty and a Loan and Security Agreement on behalf of its wholly-owned subsidiary ESWA. 

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the loan payable amounted to $274,763 and $0, respectively. For the six month period ended June 30, 2012, the Company paid interest amounting to $1,396 (June 30, 2011 - $0) on the loan and also repaid principle in the amount of $6,024 (June 30, 2011 - $0).

CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS

LEASES

Effective November 24, 2004, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, ESWA, entered into a lease agreement for approximately 40,220 square feet of leasehold space at 2 Bethlehem Pike Industrial Center, Montgomery Township, Pennsylvania. The leasehold space houses the Company's research and development facilities and also houses ESW’s manufacturing operations. The lease commenced on January 15, 2005 and was to expire January 31, 2010. Effective October 16, 2009, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary ESWA entered into a lease renewal agreement with Nappen & Associates for the leasehold property in Pennsylvania. There were no modifications to the original economic terms of the lease under the lease renewal agreement. Under the terms of the lease renewal, the lease term will now expire February 28, 2013. Effective June 30, 2011, ESWA entered into a lease amendment agreement with Nappen & Associates for the leasehold property in Pennsylvania, whereby ESWA has the sole option to extend the expiry of the lease agreement by an additional 3 years if exercised, six months prior to February 28, 2013; there were no modifications to the original economic terms of the lease.


 
Effective December 20, 2004, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, ESWC, entered into a lease agreement for approximately 50,000 square feet of leasehold space in Concord, Ontario, Canada. The leasehold space previously housed the Company's executive offices and the manufacturing operations. The renewed lease period commenced on October 1, 2010 and ended on September 30, 2015. Effective May 1, 2012, the landlord terminated the lease agreement  for the facility. The Facility had been vacated prior to the lease termination.   Thereafter effective May 22, 2012, ESWC and its former landlord entered into an agreement for the full release of any future obligations under the lease agreement subject to payment  of  a  mutually agreed consideration payable through September 2012. The agreement provides for a full and complete release of ESWC by the landlord for the consideration and terms under the lease agreement. The following is a summary of the minimum annual lease payments:

LEGAL MATTERS

From time to time, the Company may be involved in a variety of claims, suits, investigations and proceedings arising from the ordinary course of our business, breach of contract claims, labor and employment claims, tax and other matters. Although claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and their results cannot be predicted with certainty, ESW believes that the resolution of current pending matters will not have a material adverse effect on its business, consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flow. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on ESW because of legal costs, diversion of management resources and other factors

CAPITAL LEASE OBLIGATION

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company’s capital lease obligation amounted to $0 and $1,241, respectively.

RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2011-5 – “Comprehensive Income – Presentation of Comprehensive Income”.  This statement removed the presentation of comprehensive income in the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity.  The only two allowable presentations are below the components of net income in a statement of comprehensive income or in a separate statement of comprehensive income that begins with total net income.  The guidance was effective for interim or annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this ASU had no effect on the Company's unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

ESW's significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 2 to the consolidated condensed financial statements included its quarterly reports and its 2011 Annual Report to Shareholders. In preparing the consolidated condensed financial statements, we make estimates and assumptions that affect the expected amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We apply our accounting policies on a consistent basis. As circumstances change, they are considered in our estimates and judgments, and future changes in circumstances could result in changes in amounts at which assets and liabilities are recorded.

FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSACTIONS

The functional currency of the Company and its foreign subsidiaries is the U.S. dollar. Most of the Company’s revenue and materials purchased from suppliers are denominated in or linked to the U.S. dollar. Transactions denominated in currencies other than a functional currency are converted to the functional currency on the transaction date, and any resulting assets or liabilities are further translated at each reporting date and at settlement. Gains and losses recognized upon such translations are included within foreign exchange gain (loss) in the consolidated condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss.


 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

ESW is exposed to financial market risks, including changes in currency exchange rates. The Company also has foreign currency exposures at its foreign operations related to buying and selling currencies other than the local currencies. The risk under these interest rate and foreign currency exchange agreement is not considered to be significant.

ESW's exposure to foreign currency translation gains and losses also arises from the translation of the assets and liabilities of its subsidiaries to U.S. dollars during consolidation. These risks have been significantly mitigated by the move of ESW’s manufacturing operations to Pennsylvania, USA.

During the year 2011, the Company changed the functional currency of its Canadian operations from the Canadian dollar to the U.S. dollar. For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, ESW recognized a translation gain $125,957 reported as other comprehensive income in the consolidated condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Included in foreign exchange loss in the consolidated condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the six month period ended June 30, 2012, ESW has recognized a translation loss of $43,043 as compared to a loss of $84,719 in June 30, 2011 primarily as a result of exchange rate differences between the U.S. dollar and the Canadian dollar.

INTEREST RATE RISK

ESW currently has no variable-rate long-term debt that exposes ESW to interest rate risk.


ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

(a) EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURE

EVALUATION OF THE COMPANY'S DISCLOSURE AND INTERNAL CONTROLS

The Company evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of its "disclosure controls and procedures" as of the end of the period covered by this report. This evaluation was done with the participation of management, under the supervision of the Executive Chairman ("EC") and Chief Financial Officer ("CFO").

LIMITATIONS ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CONTROLS

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. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple 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. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. The Company conducts periodic evaluations of its internal controls to enhance, where necessary, its procedures and controls.
