NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (unaudited)

NOTE A - ORGANIZATION AND PLAN OF OPERATIONS

 

Vasomedical, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in July 1987. Unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “we”, “our”, “us”, “Company”, “registrant”, “Vasomedical” or “management” refer to Vasomedical, Inc. and its subsidiaries. The Company until July 2014 had been operating in two distinct business segments, the Sales Representation segment and the Equipment segment. In May 2010, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Vaso Diagnostics, Inc. d/b/a VasoHealthcare, expanded into the sales representation business via its agreement with GE Healthcare (“GEHC”), the healthcare business unit of General Electric Company (NYSE: GE), to be GEHC’s exclusive sales representative for the sale of select GEHC diagnostic imaging products in specific market segments in the 48 contiguous states of the United States and the District of Columbia.   In June 2012, the Company entered into an amendment, effective July 1, 2012, of the sales representative agreement (“GEHC Agreement”) extending the initial term of three years commencing July 1, 2010 to five years through June 30, 2015, subject to earlier termination under certain circumstances.  In the Equipment segment we design, manufacture, market and support certain medical devices.  Our principal products in this segment are Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®) systems, which are non-invasive therapy devices based on our proprietary technology, and currently indicated in the United States for the treatment of refractory angina and used for other ischemic diseases overseas.  In addition we develop, manufacture and market certain ambulatory patient monitoring systems including recorders and analysis software. 

 

In September 2011, the Company acquired Fast Growth Enterprises Limited (FGE), a British Virgin Islands company which owns and controls two Chinese operating companies - Life Enhancement Technologies Ltd. (“LET”) and Biox Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Biox”), respectively – to expand its technical and manufacturing capabilities and to enhance its distribution network, technology, and product portfolio.  Also in September 2011, the Company restructured to further align its business management structure and long-term growth strategy and started to operate through three wholly-owned subsidiaries.  Vaso Diagnostics d/b/a VasoHealthcare continues as the operating subsidiary for the sales representation of GE Healthcare diagnostic imaging products; Vasomedical Global Corp. operates the Company’s Chinese companies; and Vasomedical Solutions, Inc. manages and coordinates our EECP® therapy business as well as other medical equipment operations.

 

In April 2014, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement with Chongqing PSK-Health Sci-Tech Development Co., Ltd. ("PSK") of Chongqing, China, the leading manufacturer of ECP therapy systems in China, to form a joint venture company, VSK Medical Limited ("VSK"), for the global marketing, sale and advancement of ECP therapy technology.  The joint venture is in the early implementation phase and had not begun operations as of September 30, 2014.

 

In June 2014, the Company entered into a Value Added Reseller Agreement (“VAR Agreement”) with GEHC to become a national value added reseller of GE Healthcare IT's Radiology PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) software solutions and related services, including implementation, management and support.  This multiyear VAR Agreement focuses primarily on existing customer segments currently served by Vaso Diagnostics on behalf of GEHC.  A new wholly owned subsidiary, VasoHealthcare IT Corp., was formed to conduct the healthcare IT business.

 

In August 2014, the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of Genwell Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Genwell”), located in Wuxi, China, through its wholly owned subsidiary Wuxi Gentone Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Gentone”).  Genwell was formed in China in 2010 with the assistance of a government grant to develop the MobiCareTM  wireless multi-parameter patient monitoring system and holds the patents and intellectual property rights for this system.  See Note K.

 

We report the operations of Vasomedical Global Corp. and Vasomedical Solutions, Inc. under our Equipment segment.  Vaso Diagnostics activities are included under our Sales Representation segment.  VasoHealthcare IT operations report under the IT segment (See Note C). 

 

NOTE B - BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation and Use of Estimates

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") and pursuant to the accounting and disclosure rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Certain information and disclosures normally included in the condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. Accordingly, these condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in connection with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, as filed with the SEC. These condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the companies over which we exercise control. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of interim results for the Company. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for any other interim period or the full year.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in the condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes, and the reported amounts of revenues, expenses and cash flows during the periods presented. Actual amounts and results could differ from those estimates. The estimates and assumptions the Company makes are based on historical factors, current circumstances and the experience and judgment of the Company's management. The Company evaluates its estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis.

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

Note B of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, includes a summary of the significant accounting policies used in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements.  

 

Revenue and Expense Recognition for VasoHealthcare

 

The Company recognizes commission revenue, net of the medical device tax reimbursement to GEHC, in its Sales Representation segment (see Note C) when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, service has been rendered, the price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.  These conditions are deemed to be met when the underlying equipment has been accepted at the customer site in accordance with the specific terms of the sales agreement.  Consequently, amounts billable under the agreement with GE Healthcare in advance of the customer acceptance of the equipment are recorded as accounts receivable and deferred revenue in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.  Similarly, commissions payable to our sales force related to such billings are recorded as deferred commission expense when the associated deferred revenue is recorded.  Commission expense is recognized when the corresponding commission revenue is recognized. 

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts to conform with current period presentation.

 

NOTE C – SEGMENT REPORTING AND CONCENTRATIONS

 

The Company views its business in three segments – the Sales Representation segment, the Equipment segment, and the IT segment.  The Sales Representation segment operates through the VasoHealthcare subsidiary and is currently engaged solely in the fulfillment of the Company’s responsibilities under our agreement with GEHC.  The Equipment segment is engaged in designing, manufacturing, marketing and supporting EECP® enhanced external counterpulsation systems both domestically and internationally, as well as the development, production, marketing and supporting of other medical devices.  The Company’s new subsidiary, VasoHealthcare IT Corp., formed to conduct its healthcare IT operations, reports through the IT segment.  Operations in the IT segment began in the third quarter of 2014.  The Company evaluates segment performance based on operating income.  Administrative functions such as finance, human resources, and information technology are centralized and related expenses allocated to each segment.  Other costs not directly attributable to operating segments, such as audit, legal, director fees, investor relations, and others, as well as certain assets – primarily cash balances – are reported in the Corporate entity below.  There are no intersegment revenues.  Summary financial information for the segments is set forth below:

 

                                                                                              (in thousands)

 

 

           

For the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, GE Healthcare accounted for 84% and 77% of revenue, respectively.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, GE Healthcare accounted for 86% and 80% of revenue, respectively.  Also, GE Healthcare accounted for $6.2 million, or 87%, and $8.1 million, or 89%, of accounts and other receivables at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

 

NOTE D – SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company complies with ASC Topic 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation” (“ASC 718”), which requires all share-based awards to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the condensed consolidated financial statements based on their estimated fair values.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company granted 450,000 restricted shares of common stock valued at $157,500 to officers and 140,000 restricted shares of common stock valued at $31,100 to employees.  Of the 450,000 shares granted to officers, 100,000 shares vested immediately and the remainder vest at various times through February 2016.  Of the 140,000 shares granted to employees, 50,000 shares vested immediately and 90,000 shares vest over a three year period.  In the first nine months of 2014, the Company also granted 500,000 restricted shares of common stock to directors.  The shares were valued at $175,000 and vested immediately.  

 

During the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, the Company granted 400,000 restricted shares of common stock valued at $74,000.  100,000 of such shares were granted to an officer and 300,000 shares were granted to employees.  Shares valued at $3,600 and $38,000 vested over six month and two year periods, respectively, with the remainder vesting immediately.

 

During the nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company did not grant any stock options.

 

Share-based compensation expense recognized for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 was $32,000 and $189,000, respectively, and $29,000 and $300,000 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013, respectively.  These expenses are included in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations in 2014, and in cost of revenues; selling, general, and administrative expenses; and research and development expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations in 2013.  Expense for share-based arrangements with directors and non-employees was $43,000 and $131,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, and $0 and $87,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.  Unrecognized expense related to share-based compensation and arrangements is approximately $130,000 at September 30, 2014 and will be recognized through September 2017.

 

NOTE E – LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic loss per common share is computed as earnings applicable to common stockholders divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted loss per common share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common shares were exercised or converted to common stock.

 

The following table represents common stock equivalents that were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, because the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

                                                        (in thousands)

 

NOTE F – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

The Company complies with the provisions of ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (“ASC 820”).  Under ASC 820, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the “exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.

 

The following tables present information about the Company’s assets measured at fair value as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013:

NOTE L – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Common Stock

 

On June 17, 2010 the Board of Directors approved the 2010 Stock Plan (the “2010 Plan”) for officers, directors, employees and consultants of the Company.  The stock issuable under the 2010 Plan shall be shares of the Company’s authorized but unissued or reacquired common stock.  The maximum number of shares of common stock which may be issued under the 2010 Plan is 5,000,000 shares.

 

The 2010 Plan is comprised of two separate equity programs, the Options Grant Program, under which eligible persons may be granted options to purchase shares of common stock, and the Stock Issuance Program, under which eligible persons may be issued shares of common stock directly, either through the immediate purchase of such shares or as compensation for services rendered to the Company.  The 2010 Plan provides that the Board of Directors, or a committee of the Board of Directors, will administer it with full authority to determine the identity of the recipients of the options or shares and the number of options or shares. 

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 the Company issued, under the 2010 Plan, 710,000 shares of common stock to employees and officers, and 500,000 shares of common stock to directors.  As of September 30, 2014, 1,222 shares were available for grant under the 2010 Plan.

 

On October 30, 2013 the Board of Directors approved the 2013 Stock Plan (the “2013 Plan”) for officers, directors, employees and consultants of the Company.  The stock issuable under the 2013 Plan shall be shares of the Company’s authorized but unissued or reacquired common stock.  The maximum number of shares of common stock which may be issued under the 2013 Plan is 7,500,000 shares.

 

The 2013 Plan is comprised of two separate equity programs, the Options Grant Program, under which eligible persons may be granted options to purchase shares of common stock, and the Stock Issuance Program, under which eligible persons may be issued shares of common stock directly, either through the immediate purchase of such shares or as compensation for services rendered to the Company.  The 2013 Plan provides that the Board of Directors, or a committee of the Board of Directors, will administer the Plan with full authority to determine the identity of the recipients of the options or shares and the number of options or shares. 

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 the Company issued, under the 2013 Plan, 69,988 shares of common stock to employees.  As of September 30, 2014, 7,330,012 shares were available for grant under the 2013 Plan.

 

No options were issued under the 2010 Plan or 2013 Plan during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014.

 

In April 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $1.5 million, which was subsequently increased in July 2013 to $2.0 million, of the Company’s common stock.  As of September 30, 2014, 10,308,087 shares had been repurchased at a cost of $2,000,000, which cost has been recorded as treasury stock in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2014. 

 

NOTE M – INCOME TAXES

 

The Company’s provision for income taxes consists of state and local, and foreign taxes, as applicable, in amounts necessary to align the Company’s year-to-date tax provision with the effective rate that it expects to achieve for the full year.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $26,000 and $50,000, respectively, consisting primarily of state and local minimum taxes and foreign taxes related to the Chinese subsidiary.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $91,000 and $35,000, respectively, consisting of a tax refund on a previous period return, partially offset by state and local minimum taxes and foreign taxes related to the Chinese subsidiary.  Our domestic deferred tax assets are not realizable on a more-likely-than-not basis and, therefore, we have recorded a full valuation allowance against our domestic deferred tax assets.

 

NOTE N – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Sales representation agreement

           

In June 2012, the Company concluded an amendment of the GEHC Agreement with GE Healthcare, originally signed on May 19, 2010.  The amendment, effective July 1, 2012, extended the initial term of three years commencing July 1, 2010 to five years through June 30, 2015, subject to earlier termination under certain circumstances.  These circumstances include not materially achieving certain sales goals, not maintaining a minimum number of sales representatives, and various legal and GEHC policy requirements.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Company is required to lease dedicated computer equipment from GEHC for connectivity to their network.

 

Value Added Reseller agreement

 

            In June 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with GE Healthcare for the purchase of certain GEHC IT professional services in conjunction with the execution of its VAR Agreement, as described in Note A.  

 

 

NOTE O - RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

Standards issued but not yet effective

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard which will supersede previous existing revenue recognition guidance. The standard creates a five-step model for revenue recognition that requires companies to exercise judgment when considering contract terms and relevant facts and circumstances. The five-step model includes (1) identifying the contract, (2) identifying the separate performance obligations in the contract, (3) determining the transaction price, (4) allocating the transaction price to the separate performance obligations and (5) recognizing revenue when each performance obligation has been satisfied. The standard also requires expanded disclosures surrounding revenue recognition. The standard is effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and allows for either full retrospective or modified retrospective adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE P – BUSINESS COMBINATION

 

On August 6, 2014 the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of Genwell Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Genwell”), located in Wuxi, China, through its wholly owned subsidiary Wuxi Gentone Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Gentone”) for cash and notes of Chinese Yuan RMB13,250,000 (approximately $2,151,000 at the acquisition date).  The notes totaling RMB6,250,000 (approximately $1,015,000) are payable one year from the closing date with interest at the rate of 5% per annum.  Genwell was formed in China in 2010 with the assistance of a government grant to develop the MobiCareTM  wireless multi-parameter patient monitoring system and holds the patents and intellectual property rights for this system.

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations, the total purchase consideration is allocated to the net tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values at August 6, 2014 (the acquisition date).  The purchase price was allocated based on the information currently available, and may be adjusted after obtaining more information regarding, among other things, asset valuations, liabilities assumed, and revisions of preliminary estimates.  The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the net assets acquired:

An adjustment was made to the unaudited pro forma financial information to reflect the acquisition-related costs in the nine months ended September 30, 2013.


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

 

                  Except for historical information contained in this report, the matters discussed are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. When used in this report, words such as “anticipates”, “believes”, “could”, “estimates”, “expects”, “may”, “plans”, “potential” and “intends” and similar expressions, as they relate to the Company or its management, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of the Company’s management, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company’s management. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are the following: the effect of business and economic conditions; the effect of the dramatic changes taking place in the healthcare environment; the impact of competitive procedures and products and their pricing; medical insurance reimbursement policies; unexpected manufacturing or supplier problems; unforeseen difficulties and delays in the conduct of clinical trials and other product development programs; the actions of regulatory authorities and third-party payers in the United States and overseas; uncertainties about the acceptance of a novel therapeutic modality by the medical community; continuation of the GEHC Agreement and the risk factors reported from time to time in the Company’s SEC reports, including its recent report on Form 10-K.  The Company undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements as a result of future events or developments.

 

General Overview

 

Vasomedical, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in July 1987.  Unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “we”, “our”, “us”, “Company”, “registrant”, “Vasomedical” or “management” refer to Vasomedical, Inc. and its subsidiaries.  Until 2010, we were primarily engaged in designing, manufacturing, marketing and supporting Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®) systems, based on our proprietary technology, to physicians and hospitals throughout the United States and in select international markets.

 

In May 2010, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Vaso Diagnostics, Inc. d/b/a VasoHealthcare, expanded into the sales representation business via its agreement with GE Healthcare (“GEHC”), the healthcare business unit of General Electric Company (NYSE: GE), to be GEHC’s exclusive sales representative for the sale of select GEHC diagnostic imaging products in specific market segments in the 48 contiguous states of the United States and the District of Columbia.   In June 2012, the Company entered into an amendment, effective July 1, 2012, of the sales representative agreement (“GEHC Agreement”) extending the initial term of three years commencing July 1, 2010 to five years through June 30, 2015, subject to earlier termination under certain circumstances.

 

In September 2011, the Company acquired Fast Growth Enterprises Limited (FGE), a British Virgin Islands company, which owns and controls two Chinese operating companies - Life Enhancement Technology Ltd. and Biox Instruments Co. Ltd., respectively - to expand its technical and manufacturing capabilities and to enhance its distribution network, technology, and product portfolio.  Also in September 2011, the Company restructured to further align its business management structure and long-term growth strategy, and started to operate through three wholly-owned subsidiaries.  Vaso Diagnostics d/b/a VasoHealthcare continues as the operating subsidiary for the sales representation of GE diagnostic imaging products; Vasomedical Global Corp. operates the Company’s Chinese companies; and Vasomedical Solutions, Inc. was formed to manage and coordinate our EECP® therapy business as well as other medical equipment operations.

 

In April 2014, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement with Chongqing PSK-Health Sci-Tech Development Co., Ltd. ("PSK") of Chongqing, China, the leading manufacturer of ECP therapy systems in China, to form a joint venture company, VSK Medical Limited ("VSK"), for the global marketing, sale and advancement of ECP therapy technology.  The joint venture is in the early implementation phase and had not begun operations as of September 30, 2014.

 

In June 2014, the Company entered into a Value Added Reseller Agreement (“VAR Agreement”) with GEHC to become a national value added reseller of GE Healthcare IT's Radiology PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) software solutions and related services, including implementation, management and support.  This multiyear VAR Agreement focuses primarily on existing customer segments currently served by Vaso Diagnostics on behalf of GEHC.  A new wholly owned subsidiary, VasoHealthcare IT Corp., was formed to conduct the healthcare IT business.

 

In August 2014, the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of Genwell Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Genwell”), located in Wuxi, China, through its wholly owned subsidiary Wuxi Gentone Instruments Co. Ltd. (“Gentone”).  Genwell was formed in China in 2010 with the assistance of a government grant to develop the MobiCareTM  wireless multi-parameter patient monitoring system and holds the patents and intellectual property rights for this system.

 

We report the operations of Vasomedical Global Corp. and Vasomedical Solutions, Inc. under our Equipment segment.  Vaso Diagnostics activities are included under our Sales Representation segment.  VasoHealthcare IT operations report under the IT segment. 

 

The Company expects to achieve profitability through its sales representation operations and its China operations, as well as by expanding its market presence and product portfolio.  In addition, the Company continues to pursue acquisitions or partnership opportunities in the international and domestic markets and to expand its sales representation business.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses, and the related disclosures at the date of the financial statements and during the reporting period. Although these estimates are based on our knowledge of current events, our actual amounts and results could differ from those estimates. The estimates made are based on historical factors, current circumstances, and the experience and judgment of our management, who continually evaluate the judgments, estimates and assumptions and may employ outside experts to assist in the evaluations.

 

Certain of our accounting policies are deemed “critical”, as they are both most important to the financial statement presentation and require management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. For a discussion of our critical accounting policies, see “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. 

 

Results of Operations – For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

 

Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $7,643,000 and $7,606,000, respectively, an increase of $37,000, or less than 1%. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $123,000 compared to a net loss of $464,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, an improvement of $341,000.  The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit from our Sales Representation segment of $550,000 and a $163,000 decrease in selling, general and administrative costs, offset by a decrease in gross profit of $362,000 in our Equipment segment.  Our total net loss was $0.00 per basic and diluted common share for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. We have implemented changes in our Equipment segment operations to reduce sales, marketing and other operating costs and the effect of these changes are reflected in the reduction in selling, general and administrative expenses during the third quarter. We anticipate that the positive effects of these changes will continue to be reflected in subsequent periods.

 

Revenues

 

Commission revenues in the Sales Representation segment were $6,409,000 in the third quarter of 2014, as compared to $5,862,000 in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $547,000, or 9%.  The increase in commission revenue in the third quarter of 2014 is due primarily to an increase in the commission rate on equipment delivered, as well as an increase in the volume of equipment delivered by GEHC.  The Company recognizes revenue when the underlying equipment has been accepted at the customer site in accordance with the specific terms of the sales agreement.  Consequently, amounts billable under the GEHC Agreement prior to customer acceptance of the equipment are recorded as deferred revenue in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.  As of September 30, 2014, $16,760,000 in deferred commission revenue was recorded in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet, of which $8,359,000 was long-term.  At September 30, 2013, $11,357,000 in deferred commission revenue was recorded in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet, of which $4,443,000 was long-term.

 

Revenue in our Equipment segment decreased by $510,000, or 29%, to $1,234,000 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2014 from $1,744,000 for the same period of the prior year.  Equipment segment revenue from equipment sales decreased by $450,000, or 33%, to $903,000 for the three-month period ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $1,353,000 for the same period in the prior year primarily due to lower EECP® revenues as a result of lower sales volume.

 

We anticipate that demand for EECP® systems will remain soft unless there is greater clinical acceptance for the use of EECP® therapy or a favorable change in current reimbursement policies by CMS or third party payers.  We will continue to cost effectively pursue strategies to increase and expand reimbursement for EECP® therapy.   

 

Equipment segment revenue from equipment rental and services decreased 15% to $331,000 in the third quarter of 2014 from $391,000 in the third quarter of 2013. Revenue from equipment rental and services represented 27% and 22% of total Equipment segment revenue in the third quarters of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013, respectively.  The decrease in revenue generated from equipment rentals and services is due primarily to decreased service contract revenues. 

 

Gross Profit

 

The Company had a gross profit of $5,375,000 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $5,187,000 in the third quarter of the prior year, an increase of 4%.  The increase is principally due to higher commission rates in our Sales Representation segment on equipment orders booked in 2013and delivered in the third quarter of 2014.  Equipment segment gross profit decreased to $794,000, or 64% of Equipment segment revenues, for the third quarter of 2014 compared to $1,156,000, or 66% of Equipment segment revenues, for the same quarter of 2013.  Equipment segment gross profit decreased due to lower sales volume in the third quarter of 2014.  Gross profit margin in the Equipment segment decreased due to lower mix of higher margin equipment sales in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the prior year period. 

 

Sales Representation segment gross profit was $4,581,000, or 71%, for the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to $4,031,000, or 69%, for the three months ended September 30, 2013.  The increase was due to higher commission rates the Company received on equipment booked in 2013, coupled with commission expense which is at the same rate as in 2013 and higher equipment delivery volume by GEHC in the third quarter of 2014.  Cost of commissions of $1,828,000 and $1,831,000, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, reflects commission expense associated with recognized commission revenues.  Commission expense associated with deferred revenue is recorded as deferred commission expense until the related commission revenue is earned. 

 

Operating Loss

 

Operating loss was $149,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to an operating loss of $492,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, a decrease of $343,000.  The decrease in operating loss was primarily attributable to the increase in gross profit in the Sales Representation segment as described above, where operating income was $723,000 for the third quarter of 2014 compared to operating income of $199,000 in the same quarter of the prior year.  Equipment segment operating loss increased by $41,000 to $405,000 in the third quarter of 2014 from $364,000 in the same period of the prior year, primarily due to lower equipment sales partially offset by a decrease in selling, general, and administrative expense.  As noted above, we have taken steps to reduce costs in our Equipment segment. 

 

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the third quarter of 2014 and 2013 were $5,344,000, or 70% of revenues, and $5,507,000, or 72% of revenues, respectively, reflecting a decrease of $163,000 or approximately 3%. The decrease in SG&A expenditures in the third quarter of 2014 resulted from $266,000 lower EECP-related sales and marketing costs – mainly consulting and personnel-related expenses - in the Equipment segment, partially offset by increased staffing costs associated with initial operations of the IT segment.

 

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses of $180,000, or 2% of revenues (15% of Equipment segment revenues), for the third quarter of 2014 increased by $8,000, or 5%, from $172,000, or 2% of revenues (13% of Equipment segment revenues), for the third quarter of 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in product development and clinical research expenses.

 

Interest and Other Income, Net

 

Interest and other income (expense), net for the third quarters of 2014 and 2013 was $52,000 and ($63,000), respectively.  The change from expense to income reflected a $130,000 settlement charge associated with a workers’ compensation fund in the third quarter of 2013.

 

Income Tax Expense

 

During the third quarter of 2014 we recorded an income tax expense of $26,000 as compared to an income tax benefit of $91,000 for the third quarter of 2013.  The change from benefit to expense arose primarily from a tax refund recognized in 2013.  Our domestic deferred tax assets are not realizable on a more-likely-than-not basis and, therefore, we have recorded a full valuation allowance against our domestic deferred tax assets.

 

Results of Operations – For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

 

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $22,599,000 and $22,795,000, respectively, a decrease of $196,000, or 1%. Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $1,343,000 compared to a net loss of $1,649,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  The decrease in net loss was primarily attributable to an increase of $410,000 in gross profit, partially offset by a $125,000 increase in research and development costs.  Our total net loss was $0.01 per basic and diluted common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

 

Revenues

 

Commission revenues in the Sales Representation segment were $19,335,000 in the first nine months of 2014, as compared to $18,262,000 in the same period of 2013, an increase of 6%.  The increase in commission revenue in the first nine months of 2014 is due primarily to an increase in the commission rate on equipment delivered, partially offset by a decreased volume of equipment delivered by GEHC.  The Company recognizes revenue when the underlying equipment has been accepted at the customer site in accordance with the specific terms of the sales agreement.  Consequently, amounts billable under the GEHC Agreement prior to customer acceptance of the equipment are recorded as deferred revenue in the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

Revenue in our Equipment segment decreased by $1,269,000, or 28%, to $3,264,000 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014 from $4,533,000 for the same period of the prior year.  Equipment segment revenue from equipment sales decreased by $1,163,000, or 35%, to $2,157,000 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $3,320,000 for the same period in the prior year, primarily due to a decrease of $797,000 in EECP® revenues and a decrease in sales at our China subsidiaries of $369,000 as a result of lower sales volume.  We anticipate an increase in revenue from our China operations as we expand our geographic penetration in China and internationally, and as the newly introduced MobiCareTM product gains market acceptance.

 

We anticipate that demand for EECP® systems will remain soft unless there is greater clinical acceptance for the use of EECP® therapy or a favorable change in current reimbursement policies by CMS or third party payers.  We will continue to cost effectively pursue strategies to increase and expand reimbursement for EECP® therapy.

 

Equipment segment revenue from equipment rental and services decreased 9% to $1,107,000 in the first nine months of 2014 from $1,213,000 in the first nine months of 2013. Revenue from equipment rental and services represented 34% and 27% of total Equipment segment revenue in the first nine months of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013, respectively.  The decrease in revenue generated from equipment rentals and services is due primarily to decreased service contract revenues, partially offset by higher field service revenues. 

 

Gross Profit

 

The Company had a gross profit of $16,023,000 in the first nine months of 2014 compared to $15,613,000 in the same period of the prior year, an increase of 3%.  The increase is principally due to the increase in commission revenue discussed above.  Equipment segment gross profit decreased to $1,970,000, or 60% of Equipment segment revenues, for the first nine months of 2014 compared to $2,853,000, or 63% of Equipment segment revenues, for the same period of 2013.  Equipment segment gross profit declined due to lower equipment sales in the first three quarters of 2014, partially offset by higher gross profit on equipment rentals and services.  Gross profit margin on EECP® equipment decreased as a result of lower shipment volume and an increase in severance costs incurred in conjunction with our efforts to reduce costs in our EECP operations. 

 

Sales Representation segment gross profit was $14,053,000, or 73%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $12,760,000, or 70%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  The increase was due to higher commission rates in this segment, as explained above, partially offset by lower delivery volume in the first nine months of 2014.  Cost of commissions of $5,282,000 and $5,502,000, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, reflects commission expense associated with recognized commission revenues.  Commission expense associated with deferred revenue is recorded as deferred commission expense until the related commission revenue is earned. 

 

Operating Loss

 

Operating loss was $1,443,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to an operating loss of $1,704,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, an improvement of $261,000.  The decrease in operating loss was primarily attributable to improved operating performance in the Sales Representation segment, where operating income was $2,267,000 for the first nine months of 2014 compared to operating income of $870,000 in the same period of the prior year, partially offset by an increase in operating loss of $872,000 in the Equipment segment to $2,361,000 in the first nine months of 2014 from an operating loss of $1,489,000 in the same period of the prior year, and a $182,000 increase in Corporate expenses during the same period.  As noted previously, we have taken steps to reduce sales, marketing and other operating costs in our Equipment segment.

 

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the first nine months of 2014 and 2013 were $16,867,000, or 75% of revenues, and $16,843,000, or 74% of revenues, respectively, reflecting an increase of $24,000 or less than 1%. The increase in SG&A expenditures in the first nine months of 2014 resulted primarily from increased staffing costs associated with initial operations of the IT segment and higher corporate expenses, primarily directors’ fees, partially offset by lower expenditures in the Equipment and Sales Representation segments reflecting lower sales and marketing costs.

 

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses of $599,000, or 3% of revenues (18% of Equipment segment revenues), for the first nine months of 2014 increased by $125,000, or 26%, from $474,000, or 2% of revenues (10% of Equipment segment revenues), for the first nine months of 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to costs associated with the preparation of an FDA required pre-market approval of our EECP® therapy system for the treatment of congestive heart failure, as well as an increase in product development and clinical research expenses.

 

Interest and Other Income, Net

 

Interest and other income, net for the first nine months of 2014 was $150,000 as compared to $20,000 for the same period of 2013. The increase was due primarily to a $130,000 settlement charge associated with a workers’ compensation fund in 2013.

 

Income Tax (Expense) Benefit

 

            During the first nine months of 2014 we recorded income tax expense of $50,000 as compared to income tax benefit of $35,000 for the first nine months of 2013.  The change from benefit to expense resulted mainly from a tax refund recognized in 2013.  Our domestic deferred tax assets are not realizable on a more-likely-than-not basis and, therefore, we have recorded a full valuation allowance against our domestic deferred tax assets.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash and Cash Flow

 

We have financed our operations from working capital.  At September 30, 2014, we had cash and cash equivalents of $9,054,000, short-term investments of $111,000 and working capital of $3,720,000 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $7,961,000, short-term investments of $111,000 and working capital of $6,716,000 at December 31, 2013. 

 

Cash provided by operating activities was $2,586,000 during the first nine months of 2014, which consisted of a net loss after adjustments to reconcile net loss to net cash of $695,000, offset by cash provided by operating assets and liabilities of $3,281,000. The changes in the account balances primarily reflect a decrease in accounts and other receivables of $6,396,000, partially offset by increases in other assets of $1,639,000 and decreases in accrued expenses of $1,203,000.  Under the GEHC Agreement the Company earns progressively higher commission rates as calendar year targets are met, and this commission structure has a significant impact on our cash flows. As we achieve these targets, the higher commission rates are retroactively applied to all orders booked in the calendar year, and therefore, significantly higher commission billings and recognized revenue were generated in the fourth quarter of 2013, resulting in significant cash inflows in the first quarter of 2014.  As we previously reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, higher commission rates were earned in 2013 than in 2012, resulting in higher cash inflows in 2014.    

 

Cash used in investing activities during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014 was $1,023,000, net of cash acquired, for the acquisition of Genwell and $227,000 for the purchase of equipment and software.

 

Cash used in financing activities during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014 was $244,000 for the repurchase of common stock.

 

Liquidity

 

The Company expects to achieve profitability through its sales representation operations and its China operations, as well as by expanding its market presence and product portfolio.  In addition, the Company continues to pursue acquisitions or partnership opportunities in the international and domestic markets and to expand its sales representation business.

 

Based on our operations through September 30, 2014 and our current business outlook for the ensuing year, we believe internally generated funds from our business segments will be sufficient for the Company to continue operations through at least October 1, 2015.
