AMERICAN ELECTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of American Electric Technologies, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (“AETI”, “the Company”, “our”, “we”, “us”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and include all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for fair financial statement presentation. All adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, which was filed on March 29, 2018. The December 31, 2017 balance sheet was derived from the audited financial statements contained in our 2017 Form 10-K.

2. Summary of Certain Significant Accounting Policies

Adoption of New Revenue Recognition Standard

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU No. 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU No. 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required under existing U.S. GAAP. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU No. 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14 which delayed the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 by one year (effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017). The Company adopted ASU 2014-09, effective January 1, 2018, using the modified retrospective method. The adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s revenue recognition policies, other than enhanced disclosures related to the disaggregation of revenues from contracts with customers, the Company’s performance obligations and any significant judgments.

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, to clarify two aspects of Topic 606: (i) identifying performance obligations; and (ii) the licensing implementation guidance. The amendments do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2016-10 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2014-09. This standard was adopted effective January 1, 2018.

In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients. ASU No. 2016-12 provides narrow-scope improvements to the guidance on collectability, noncash consideration, and completed contracts at transition. The amendment also provides a practical expedient for contract modifications at transition and an accounting policy election related to the presentation of sales taxes and other similar taxes collected from customers and are expected to reduce the judgment necessary to comply with Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2016-12 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2014-09. This standard was adopted effective January 1, 2018.

In December 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-20, Technical Corrections and Improvements to Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. ASU No. 2016-20 allows entities not to make quantitative disclosures about remaining performance obligations in certain cases and require entities that use any of the new or previously existing optional exemptions to expand their qualitative disclosures. The amendment also clarifies narrow aspects of ASC 606, including contract modifications, contract costs, and the balance sheet classification of items as contract assets versus receivables, or corrects unintended application of the guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2016-20 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements for ASU No. 2014-09.

The Company recognizes revenue when or as it satisfies a performance obligation by transferring promised goods or service to a customer using the over-time method to account for certain long-term contracts and point in time method for non-time and material jobs. The non-time and material jobs are of a short-term nature (typically less than one month) and are determined after considering the attributes of such contracts. This method is used because these contracts are typically completed in a short period of time and the financial position and results of operations do not vary materially from those which would result from use of the percentage-of-completion method. Earnings are accrued based on the ratio of costs incurred to total estimated costs. Costs include direct material, direct labor, and job related overhead. For our manufacturing activities we have determined that labor incurred, rather than total costs incurred, provides an improved measure of percentage-of-completion. For contracts with anticipated losses, the

7


estimated losses are charged to operations in the period such losses are determined. The asset, “Work-in-process,” which is included in inventories, represents the cost of labor, material, and overhead on jobs accounted for using the point in time method for non-time and material jobs. The contract asset, “Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts,” represents revenue recognized in excess of amounts billed and the contract-liability, “Billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts,” represents billings in excess of revenue recognized under the percentage-of-completion method.  Due to the nature of these projects, the estimation of total revenue and cost at completion is subject to many variables and requires significant judgement. Progress billings are generally issued upon completion of certain milestones of the project as specified in the contract.

Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts related to our continuing operations was $1.4 million at June 30, 2018 and $0.6 million at December 31, 2017. Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts related to our discontinued operations was $2.0 million and $5.8 million at June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and included in current assets held for sale.  

The order backlog at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 was $2.1 million and $2.2 million, respectively. This backlog is expected to be recognized in revenue during the remainder of 2018 and 2019.

Uses and Sources of Liquidity

The Company’s primary need for liquidity is to fund working capital requirements of the Company’s businesses, capital expenditures and for general corporate purposes, including debt repayment. The Company has incurred losses and experienced negative operating cash flows for the past several years, and accordingly, the Company has taken a number of actions to continue to support its operations and meet its obligations.

During 2017, the Company refinanced its outstanding loans which at that time provided approximately $1.0 million of working capital. In addition, the Board of Directors of the Company created a special committee to address strategic initiatives that include addressing liquidity.  

The Company expects to continue to optimize its international operations including expansion of its service business in Brazil and diversification of its joint venture operations in China. The Company also has the ability to raise additional capital through its shelf registration; however, there is no assurance that additional capital can be obtained or that it can be obtained at terms that are favorable to the Company and its existing stockholders.

Based on the Transaction noted in Note 11, the Company believes it has sufficient liquidity to operate in the near term. As further described in Note 11 in August 2018, the Company has agreed to sell its operations in the United States of America “U.S.” to a third-party. Management believes the funds received from the sale will be sufficient to pay-off the secured term note and fund operations in the near term.        

3. Earnings per Common Share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, by the sum of (1) the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period, (2) the dilutive effect of the assumed exercise of convertible instruments and (3) the dilutive effect of the exercise of stock options and other stock units to our common stock.

For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018, common stock equivalents from convertible instruments, stock options and other stock units have been excluded from the calculation of weighted average diluted shares because all such instruments were anti-dilutive.                       

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted weighted average common shares.

4. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. ASU No. 2016-01 requires (1) an entity to measure equity instruments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income; (2) entities to use the exit price notation when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes; (3) separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset; and (4) elimination of the requirement to disclose the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. ASU No. 2016-01 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 with early adoption permitted. The adoption of ASU No. 2016-01, effective January 1, 2018 had no significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases, which requires lessees to  recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: (1) a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and (2) a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Under ASU No. 2016-02, lessor accounting is largely unchanged. ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 with early application permitted. Lessees and lessors must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. The modified retrospective approach would not require any

9


transition accounting for leases expiring before the earliest comparative period presented. Lessees and lessors may not apply a full retrospective transition approach. Management is currently reviewing the Company’s various leases to identify those affected by ASU No. 2016-02.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. ASU No. 2016-13 eliminates the probable initial recognition threshold in current U.S. GAAP and, instead, requires the measurement of all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. In addition, ASU No. 2016-13 amends the accounting for credit losses on available-for-sale debt securities and purchased financial assets with credit deterioration. ASU No. 2016-13 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early application permitted in annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The amendments of ASU No. 2016-13 should be applied through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. Management is currently evaluating the future impact of ASU No. 2016-13 on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and disclosures.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. ASU No. 2016-15 addresses eight specific cash flow issues and is intended to reduce diversity in practice in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU No. 2016-15 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU No. 2016-15 effective January 1, 2018 did not have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and disclosures.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business. ASU No. 2017-01 clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of a business or as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets. ASU No. 2017-01 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted under certain circumstances. The amendments of ASU No. 2017-01 should be applied prospectively as of the beginning of the period of adoption. Management is currently evaluating the future impact of ASU No. 2017-01 on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and disclosures.

5. Investments in Foreign Joint Ventures

We have interests in one joint venture, outside of the United States of America (“U.S.”) which is accounted for using the equity method:

BOMAY Electric Industries Company, Ltd. (“BOMAY”), in which the Company holds a 40% interest, Baoji Oilfield Machinery Co., Ltd. (a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation) holds a 51% interest, and AA Energies, Inc., holds a 9% interest. BOMAY was formed in 2006 in China with a term of 12 years and was set to expire in 2018. In March 2018, an agreement was approved by the BOMAY Board of Directors extending the joint venture agreement beyond the 2018 expiration date.

The Company disposed of its M&I Electric Far East (“MIEFE”) joint venture interest during the quarter.

The Company made no sales to its joint venture for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.   

Summary (unaudited) financial information of our foreign joint venture in U.S. dollars was as follows at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 (in thousands):

Accumulated statutory reserves in equity method investments of $2.81 million at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively, are included in AETI’s consolidated retained earnings. In accordance with the People’s Republic of China, (“PRC”), regulations on enterprises with foreign ownership, a wholly-owned foreign invested  enterprise established in the PRC is required to provide for certain statutory reserves, namely (i) General Reserve Fund, (ii) Enterprise Expansion Fund and (iii) Staff Welfare and Bonus Fund, which are appropriated from net profit as reported in the enterprise’s PRC statutory accounts. A non-wholly-owned foreign invested enterprise is permitted to provide for the above allocation at the discretion of its board of directors. The aforementioned reserves can only be used for specific purposes and are not distributable as cash dividends.

Under the equity method of accounting, the Company’s share of the joint ventures’ operations’ earnings or loss is recognized in the condensed consolidated statements of operations as equity income from foreign joint ventures’ operations. Joint venture income increases the carrying value of the joint venture investment and joint venture losses, as well as dividends received from the joint venture, reduce the carrying value of the investment.

The Company reviews its equity method investment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the investment may not be recoverable or the inability of the investee to sustain an earnings capacity that would justify the carrying amount of the investment. Based on this analysis, there was no indication of impairment at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

6. Notes Payable

Senior Secured Term Note

On March 23, 2017, the Company and its subsidiaries, M&I Electric Industries, Inc. and South Coast Electric Systems, LLC (collectively, the “Sellers”) issued and sold to HD Special-Situations III, L.P. (the “Purchaser”) a $7.00 million principal amount Senior Secured Term Note (the “Note”)  with principal of $0.50 million due and paid on June 30, 2017, with the remaining balance

11


due 48 months after issuance for cash at par pursuant to a Note Purchase Agreement  (the “Purchase Agreement”). Proceeds from the sale of the Note were used to fully repay and terminate the Company’s prior revolving credit facilities with approximately $1.00 million being available for the Company’s working capital and general business purposes.

The Note bears interest at 11.5% per annum payable monthly in arrears. The Note is secured by a first-priority lien on substantially all existing and after-acquired personal property assets and real estate owned by the Sellers (with certain exceptions) and is subject to covenants restricting the Company’s ability to incur debt, grant liens, pay dividends, engage in transactions with affiliates and other customary covenants for financing of this type (subject to certain exceptions). The Note is subject to an interest “make-whole” provision such that any prepayment of the principal thereunder in excess of $1.50 million (the “Prepayment Threshold”) within one year of the date of issuance (the “Make-Whole Period”) shall be subject to prepayment premium. No prepayments were made during the Make-Whole Period which expired on March 28, 2018. After the one year Make- Whole Period the Note may be prepaid in part or in full with no penalty.

The Purchase Agreement contains representations and affirmative, negative and financial covenants usual and customary for financing of this type, including covenants that place conditions upon the Company’s ability to merge or consolidate with other companies, sell any material part of their business or property, incur liens, and pay dividends on, make distributions on or redeem their equity interests.  Other covenants in the Purchase Agreement require the Company to maintain minimum monthly revenue, maintain minimum monthly EBITDA, maintain minimum monthly cash on hand, maintain a minimum monthly debt service coverage ratio, maintain a maximum debt-to-EBITDA ratio, maintain a minimum monthly collateral coverage ratio and obtain consent of the Purchaser for certain capital expenditures.

On November 13, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement modifying the terms of its Senior Secured Term Note. The modification included revisions to the original revenue and EBITDA covenants along with the requirement of minimum principal reductions of $30,000 per month beginning in April 2018.  In consideration for the modified terms, the Company issued 500,000 warrants to purchase the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $2.26 which expire in November 2023.

The fair valve of the warrants of approximately $0.37 million was recognized as additional paid-in capital with a corresponding discount to long-term notes payable. The discount is accreted to interest expense through Note’s maturity. Discount accretion totaled $0.01 million and $0.03 for the three months and six months ended June 30 for both 2018 and 2017.    

As of June 30, 2018, the Company was not in compliance with certain financial covenants. However, as a condition to the Transaction referenced in Note 11, the Company subsequently paid off the debt in full with the Purchaser.

On March 29, 2018, the Company’s subsidiary, M&I Brazil, extended the terms of its Loan Agreement with the former chairman of AETI to June 7, 2019. The Loan Agreement provides the Company with a $0.30 million loan facility of which $0.20 million is drawn and is outstanding as of June 30, 2018 and with any balance outstanding due June 7, 2019. Under the loan agreement, the interest rate on the loan facility is 10.0%, per annum, payable each quarter. The loan facility is secured by the assets held by M&I Brazil.
