NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

1.  Summary of Significant Accounting and Reporting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation, have been included.  Operating results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other quarter or for the full year.  These statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
 
In October 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance titled “Revenue Recognition – Multiple Deliverable Revenue Arrangements” (Accounting Standards Update 2009-13), which requires entities to allocate revenue in an arrangement using estimated selling prices of the delivered goods and services based on a selling price hierarchy. The guidance eliminates the residual method of revenue allocation and requires revenue to be allocated using the relative selling price method. This guidance is applied on a prospective basis for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010. This guidance became effective for the Company in the quarter ended September 30, 2010, and its adoption did not have a significant effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In July 2010, the FASB issued guidance expanding disclosure requirements related to receivables. The guidance was issued to provide financial statement users with greater transparency about an entity’s allowance for credit losses and the credit quality of its financing receivables. The guidance is for receivables, off-balance sheet credit exposures and foreclosed and repossessed assets. The Company’s summary of significant accounting policies shall now include: (i) basis for accounting for loans, trade receivables, and lease financing (including those classified as held for sale), (ii) method used in determining the lower of cost or fair value of nonmortgage loans held for sale, (iii) classification and method of accounting for interest-only strips, loans and other receivables and (iv) method for recognizing interest income on loan and trade receivables.
 
 
7

 
 
In addition, the allowance for credit losses, the allowance for doubtful accounts, and as applicable any unearned income, any unamortized premiums and discounts, and any net unamortized deferred fees and costs, shall be disclosed in the financial statements. The Company adopted this guidance, as required for both interim and annual reporting periods, effective December 15, 2010. The adoption of this guidance does not impact the Company’s consolidated results of operations or financial position. The Company has included its Accounts Receivable policy in Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2011, the FASB issued guidance titled “Disclosures about an Employers Participation in a Multiemployer Plan”.  The guidance requires employers that participate in multiemployer pension plans to provide additional quantitative and qualitative disclosures to provide users with more detailed information about an employer’s involvement in multiemployer pension plans.  The guidance is effective for years ending after December 15, 2011.  Adoption of this pronouncement is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable.  The carrying amounts for cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate their fair value due to the short maturity of these instruments.

2.  Inventories

Inventories are comprised as follows:

   
September 30, 2011
   
June 30, 2011
 
             
Work-in progress
  $ 983,008     $ 820,586  
Component parts
    7,581,123       7,858,862  
Finished goods
    3,590,456       3,293,261  
Reserve for obsolete and excess inventory
    (1,402,530 )     (1,419,420 )
    $ 10,752,057     $ 10,553,289  

3.  Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share are based on the weighted average number of shares of all common stock outstanding during the period.  Diluted earnings per share are based on the sum of the weighted average number of shares of common stock and common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. The weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 were 8,124,386 and 8,093,386, respectively.
 
 
8

 
 
4.  Commitments and Contingencies

The Company is subject to various investigations, claims and legal proceedings covering a wide range of matters that arise in the ordinary course of its business activities.  The Company intends to continue to conduct business in such a manner as to avert any FDA action seeking to interrupt or suspend manufacturing or require any recall or modification of products.

The Company has recognized the costs and associated liabilities only for those investigations, claims and legal proceedings for which, in its view, it is probable that liabilities have been incurred and the related amounts are estimable.  Based upon information currently available, management believes that existing accrued liabilities are sufficient and that it is not reasonably possible at this time that any additional liabilities will result from the resolution of these matters that would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

Stuyvesant Falls Power Litigation.  The Company is currently involved in litigation with Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation d/b/a National Grid (“Niagara”) and other parties, which provides electrical power to the Company’s facility in Stuyvesant Falls, New York.  In fiscal year 2011, Niagara began sending invoices to the Company for electricity used at the Company’s Stuyvesant Falls plant.  The Company maintains in its defense of the lawsuit that it is entitled to a certain amount of free electricity based on covenants running with the land which have been honored for more than a century.  Niagara’s attempts to collect such invoices were stopped in December 2010 by a temporary restraining order, although a court has not yet ruled on the merits of all of Niagara’s claims.  Among other things, Niagara seeks approximately $469,000, which it alleges represents the value of electricity provided prior to the commencement of litigation going back to 2003.  As of September 30, 2011, the Company has not recorded a provision for this matter as management intends to vigorously defend this allegation and believes the payment of this claim is not probable.  The Company believes, however, that any liability it may incur would not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or its result of operations.

Armstrong Medical Infringement Litigation.  The Company is currently involved in litigation against Armstrong Medical Ltd., relating to the Company’s marketing and sale of Litholyme® and a patent owned by Armstrong Medical regarding a carbon dioxide absorbent for use in anesthesiology.  In this litigation, the Company asserts that Armstrong Medical’s patent is invalid as being anticipated and obvious in light of material prior art and seeks a declaratory judgment that the marketing and sale of Litholyme® does not infringe Armstrong Medical’s patent.  Armstrong Medical has denied the Company’s claims and counterclaimed for infringement.  As of September 30, 2011, the Company cannot estimate a loss or range of loss for this matter because damages claimed by Armstrong Medical have not been specified and the proceedings are in early stages.

5.  Financing

The Company is party to a Loan and Security Agreement, dated November 17, 2009, with Enterprise Bank & Trust (the “Credit Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company obtained a secured revolving credit facility with borrowing availability of up to $7,500,000 (the “Credit Facility”). The Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility are secured by certain assets of the Company pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Facility was amended on November 2, 2010 extending the maturity date to November 14, 2011.  The Credit Facility will be available on a revolving basis until it expires on November 14, 2011, at which time all amounts outstanding under the Credit Facility will be due and payable. Advances under the Credit Facility will be made pursuant to a Revolving Credit Note executed by the Company in favor of Enterprise Bank & Trust. Such advances will bear interest at a rate equal to .50% in excess of Enterprise Bank & Trust’s prime-rate based interest rate for commercial loans, subject to a minimum annual interest rate of 4.50%.  Advances may be prepaid in whole or in part without premium or penalty.

Under the Credit Agreement, advances are generally subject to customary borrowing conditions. The Credit Agreement also contains covenants with which the Company must comply during the term of the Credit Facility. Among other things, such covenants restrict the Company’s ability to incur certain additional debt; make specified restricted payments, dividends and capital expenditures; authorize or issue capital stock; enter into certain transactions with affiliates; consolidate or merge with or acquire another business; sell certain of its assets or dissolve or wind up the Company. The Credit Agreement also contains certain events of default that are customary for financings of this type including, without limitation: the failure to pay principal, interest, fees or other amounts when due; the breach of specified representations or warranties contained in the loan documents; cross-default with certain other indebtedness of the Company; the entry of uninsured judgments that are not bonded or stayed; failure to comply with the observance or performance of specified agreements contained in the loan documents; commencement of bankruptcy or other insolvency proceedings; and the failure of any of the loan documents entered into in connection with the Credit Facility to be in full force and effect. After an event of default, and upon the continuation thereof, the principal amount of all loans made under the Credit Facility would bear interest at a rate per annum equal to 4.00% above the otherwise applicable interest rate (provided, that the interest rate may not exceed the highest rate permissible under law), and the lender would have the option to accelerate maturity and payment of the Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility.

The prime rate was 3.25% on September 30, 2011.
 
 
10

 
 
At September 30, 2011 the Company had no aggregate indebtedness, including capital lease obligations, short-term debt and long term debt.

The Company was in compliance with all of the financial covenants associated with the Credit Facility at September 30, 2011.

6.  Baralyme® Agreement

A reconciliation of deferred revenue resulting from the agreement with Abbott Laboratories (“Abbott”), with the amounts received under the agreement, and amounts recognized as net sales is as follows:

   
Three Months ended

Less - Current portion of deferred revenue
    (630,850 )     (688,200 )
    $ -     $ 630,850  

In addition to the provisions of the agreement relating to the withdrawal of the Baralyme® product, Abbott agreed to pay Allied up to $2,150,000 in product development costs to pursue development of a new carbon dioxide absorption product for use in connection with inhalation anesthetics that does not contain potassium hydroxide and does not produce a significant exothermic reaction with currently available inhalation agents.  As of September 30, 2011, $2,150,000 has been received as a result of product development activities.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Results of Operations

Three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to three months ended September 30, 2010

Allied had net sales of $11.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, down $0.5 million from net sales of $11.9 million in the prior year same quarter. Domestic sales were down 4.1% while international sales, which represented 18.4% of first quarter sales, were down 6.7% from the prior year same quarter.
 
 
11

 
 
Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2011 include $172,050 for the recognition into income of payments resulting from the agreement with Abbott Laboratories to cease the production and distribution of Baralyme®.  Income from the agreement will continue to be recognized at $57,350 per month until the expiration of the agreement in August 2012.  Allied continues to sell Carbolime®, a carbon dioxide absorbent with a different formulation than Baralyme®.  The Company ceased the sale of Baralyme® on August 27, 2004.

Orders for the Company’s products for the three months ended September 30, 2011 of $11.2 million were $0.6 million or 5.1% lower than orders for the prior year same quarter of $11.8 million.  Domestic orders are down 11.7% over the prior year same quarter while international orders, which represented 21.5% of first quarter orders, were 29.2% higher than orders for the prior year same quarter. The Company continues to reorganize efforts to more effectively reach international markets.  The decrease in domestic orders is the result of a decrease in government orders from the prior year. The Company does not believe this fluctuation in government orders represents a decrease in market share. The Company continues to believe that orders have been negatively impacted by the slow recovery of the economy.  Orders remain below pre-recession levels.
 
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $2.4 million, or 21.1% of net sales, compared to $2.6 million, or 21.8% of net sales, for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, was negatively impacted by higher market prices for raw materials including brass and thermoplastic resins.  These cost increases were partially offset by manufacturing improvements.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2011 were $2.6 million compared to selling, general and administrative expenses of $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  This decrease is due to, among other things, decreases in fringe benefit expense and sales commissions compared to the same quarter of the prior year.  These decreases were largely offset by higher legal and recruiting costs.

Loss from operations was $228,072 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to loss from operations of $133,849 for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  Allied had loss before benefit from income taxes in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 of $233,819 compared to loss before benefit from income taxes in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 of $141,540.

Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $144,968 or $0.02 per basic and diluted share compared to net loss of $87,755 or $0.01 per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2011.  The weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 were 8,124,386 and 8,093,386, respectively.
 
 
12

 
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company believes that available resources and anticipated cash flows from operations are sufficient to meet operating requirements in the coming year.

The Company’s working capital was $17.8 million at September 30, 2011 compared to $18.3 million at June 30, 2011.  Cash decreased $0.3 million, accounts payable increased by $0.2 million, accrued liabilities increased $0.3 million and accounts receivable decreased $0.2 million.  Accounts receivable as measured in days of sales outstanding (“DSO”) was 41 DSO at September 30, 2011; unchanged from June 30, 2011.  At September 30, 2011 these decreases in working capital were offset by an increase in other current assets of $0.2 million and an increase in inventory of $0.2 million.  The increase in other current assets is a result of prepayment of the Company’s insurance premiums.

The Company is party to a Loan and Security Agreement, dated November 17, 2009, with Enterprise Bank & Trust (the “Credit Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company has a secured revolving credit facility with borrowing availability of up to $7,500,000 (the “Credit Facility”). The Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility are secured by certain assets of the Company pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement.  See Note 5 – Financing to the Company’s consolidated unaudited financial statements for more information concerning the Credit Facility.

Advances under the Credit Facility will be made pursuant to a Revolving Credit Note executed by the Company in favor of Enterprise Bank & Trust. Such advances will bear interest at a rate equal to .50% in excess of Enterprise Bank & Trust’s prime-rate based interest rate for commercial loans, subject to a minimum annual interest rate of 4.50%.  Advances may be prepaid in whole or in part without premium or penalty.  The prime rate was 3.25% on September 30, 2011.

At September 30, 2011 the Company had no aggregate indebtedness, including capital lease obligations, short-term debt and long term debt.

In the event that economic conditions were to severely worsen for a protracted period of time, we believe that we will have borrowing capacity under credit facilities that will provide sufficient financial flexibility.  The Company would have options available to ensure liquidity in addition to increased borrowing.  Capital expenditures, which are budgeted at $1.3 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, could be postponed.

During the first three months of fiscal 2012 the Company has experienced higher prices for raw materials due to increased commodity prices for brass and thermoplastic resins.  Brass cost is driven by higher copper prices, the main component.   These increases have been partially offset by higher revenues for recycled metals and purchasing initiatives for other components and finished goods.

Litigation and Contingencies

The Company becomes, from time to time, a party to personal injury litigation arising out of incidents involving the use of its products. The Company believes that any potential judgments resulting from these claims over its self-insured retention will be covered by the Company’s product liability insurance.

Recently Issued Accounting Guidance
 
The impact and any associated risks related to the Company’s critical accounting policies on business operations are discussed throughout “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” where such policies affect the Company’s reported and expected financial results. For a detailed discussion on the application of these and other accounting policies, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011.
 
See Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting and Reporting Policies for more information on recent accounting pronouncements and their impact, if any, on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Management believes there have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies.

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk

At September 30, 2011, the Company did not have any debt outstanding.  The revolving credit facility bears an interest rate using the commercial bank’s prime-rate based interest rate for commercial loans as the basis, as defined in the loan agreement, and therefore is subject to additional expense should there be an increase in market interest rates.

The Company had no holdings of derivative financial or commodity instruments at September 30, 2011.  The Company has international sales; however these sales are denominated in U.S. dollars, mitigating foreign exchange rate fluctuation risk.

Item 4.     Controls and Procedures
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
The Company maintains controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based upon their evaluation of those controls and procedures performed as of September 30, 2011, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company concluded that its disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Part II.   OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.  Legal Proceedings

In response to a “cease and desist letter” previously received by the Company from Armstrong Medical Ltd., demanding that the Company stop its marketing and sale of Litholyme®, on May 27, 2011 the Company filed a declaratory judgment action in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against Armstrong Medical.  The declaratory judgment action challenges the validity of a patent owned by Armstrong Medical regarding a carbon dioxide absorbent for use in anesthesiology on the grounds that such patent is anticipated and obvious in light of material prior art and seeks a declaratory judgment that the Company does not infringe such patent.  On September 15, 2011, Armstrong Medical filed an answer denying the Company’s claims and counterclaiming that the Company’s marketing and sale of Litholyme® infringes Armstrong’s patent.
