CAS Medical Systems, Inc. and Subsidiary
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

June 30, 2014

(1)      The Company

CAS Medical Systems, Inc. (“CASMED” or the “Company”) is a medical technology company that develops, manufactures, and distributes non-invasive patient monitoring products that are vital to patient care. Our products include the FORE-SIGHT® series of absolute tissue oximeters and sensors, including the FORE-SIGHT ELITE® oximeter and traditional monitoring products which include MAXNIBP® and MAXIQ™ blood pressure measurement technologies, bedside monitoring products, and supplies for neonatal intensive care. These products are designed to provide accurate, non-invasive, biologic measurements that guide healthcare providers to deliver improved patient care. CASMED markets its products worldwide through its sales force, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives, and original equipment manufacturers. The Company’s operations and manufacturing facility is located in the United States.

(2)      Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Certain information and disclosures included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.  These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.  The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2013, was derived from the audited financial statements.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of sales and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates that are particularly sensitive to change in the near-term are inventory valuation allowances, deferred income tax asset valuation allowances, and allowances for doubtful accounts. Actual results could differ from those estimates. In the opinion of the Company, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company and its consolidated results of operations and cash flows have been included in the accompanying financial statements.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the expected results for the full year.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents plus available borrowings under its revolving loan with its new lender, totaling $8,055,000, which amounts are sufficient to support the Company’s operations for the next 12 months. The Company expects to continue to use cash from operations during the remainder of 2014 but at a steadily declining rate as its results from operations improve.  The Company’s term debt agreement with General Electric Capital Corporation (“GECC”) was consummated on June 27, 2014, (see Note 5) and contains a 12-month interest-only payment feature with an additional six-month deferment should the Company reach certain financial targets at April 30, 2015. Management believes that it can reach those targets, thus enabling the Company to defer principal repayments until January 1, 2016, while it strives to reach positive cash flows from operations. The Company may seek additional capital to support its operations should the need arise. Management believes that it can obtain additional financing; however, there can be no assurance that such additional financing can be obtained on acceptable terms or at all.

(3)      Principal Products and Services

The Company has categorized its sales of products and services into the following categories:

●   
Tissue oximetry monitoring products – includes sales of the FORE-SIGHT cerebral monitors, sensors, and accessories.

 
- 8 -

 
●   
Traditional vital signs monitoring products – includes:
 
1)  
Vital signs bedside monitors and accessories, incorporating various combinations of measurement parameters for both human and veterinary use. Parameters found in these monitors include the Company’s proprietary MAXNIBP non-invasive blood pressure, pulse oximetry, electro-cardiography, temperature, and capnography.

2)  
Blood pressure measurement technology which includes sales to OEM manufacturers of the Company’s proprietary MAXNIBP non-invasive blood pressure technology, sold as a discrete module to be included in the OEM customers’ own multi-parameter monitors, and related license fees.

3)  
Supplies and service which includes sales of neonatal intensive care supplies, comprised of electrodes, skin temperature probes, and service repair.

(4)      Inventories, Property and Equipment, and Intangible and Other Assets

Inventories consist of:
 
   
June 30,
   
December 31,
 
   
2014
   
2013
 
             
Raw materials
  $ 2,250,408     $ 2,388,380  
Work in process
    21,789       10,319  
Finished goods
    1,596,856       1,532,308  
   Total
  $ 3,869,053     $ 3,931,007  

Property and equipment are stated at cost and are depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets.  Property and equipment includes FORE-SIGHT cerebral oximetry monitors primarily located at customer sites within the United States.  Such equipment is typically held under a no-cost program whereby customers purchase disposable sensors for use with the Company’s FORE-SIGHT equipment.  The Company retains title to the monitors shipped to its customers under this program.

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company launched its next-generation FORE-SIGHT ELITE cerebral oximetry technology. The Company anticipated significant demand for the new technology expecting that many customers utilizing the Company’s first-generation cerebral oximetry technology under its monitor placement program would seek to upgrade to the latest technology. Upon concluding an impairment analysis with respect to the Company-owned monitors at customer locations, the Company recorded an impairment charge during the third quarter of 2013 to cost of sales of $407,141, thereby reducing the net book value of those assets to estimated fair value. Further, the monitors are being amortized using the straight-line method over the adjusted estimated remaining useful lives of the assets, resulting in increased amortization of the monitors until the monitors are removed from service.

Intangible assets consist of patents issued, patents pending, trademarks, and purchased technology which are recorded at cost. Patents are amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years.

The Company believes that the carrying amounts of its remaining long-lived assets are fully recoverable.

(5)      Debt Financing

On June 27, 2014, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with GECC.  Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, GECC provided the Company with a 48-month secured term loan in the amount of $7,500,000 (the “Term Loan”) and a Revolving Loan in the maximum amount of $2,500,000 (the “Revolver”).  The Term Loan and the Revolver each mature on June 27, 2018.  The obligations under the Loan Agreement are secured by a lien on substantially all assets of the Company.

The Term Loan bears interest on the outstanding daily balance at a fixed rate of 9.29%.  Under the Term Loan, 36 equal payments of $202,703 commence on July 1, 2015, with one final payment due in an amount equal to the remaining principal balance on the final maturity date. Principal payments under the Term Loan may be deferred for an additional six months if the Company reaches certain financial targets at April 30, 2015.

Revolver advances will bear interest at a floating rate equal to 5.5% plus the higher of 1.5% per annum or GECC’s base rate determined by a LIBOR-based formula.  Maximum borrowings under the Revolver are based upon the Company’s eligible accounts receivable as defined in the Loan Agreement. The amount available for borrowing under the Revolver as of June 30, 2014, was $1,859,000. There were no borrowings under the Revolver as of June 30, 2014.
 
 
 
- 10 -

 
The Company has the right to prepay loans under the Loan Agreement in whole or in part at any time.  If the Term Loan is prepaid prior to maturity, an additional fee of 2% of the Term Loan amount is due if such prepayment takes place within one year from the closing date. Thereafter, the additional fee declines to 1% for any prepayment taking place after such first anniversary and prior to the scheduled maturity date.  Upon repayment of the Term Loan at any time, GECC is entitled to an additional fee equal to 4% of the Term Loan amount, or $300,000.

The Loan Agreement contains customary affirmative covenants, including covenants regarding the payment of taxes and other obligations, maintenance of insurance, reporting requirements, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Further, the Loan Agreement contains customary negative covenants limiting the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, among other things, to grant liens on the pledged collateral, incur additional indebtedness, make certain investments and acquisitions, and dispose of assets outside the ordinary course of business. The Loan Agreement also contains a financial covenant requiring the Company to maintain a continuing level of cash plus available borrowing capacity based on a formula.

In connection with the Loan Agreement executed on June 27, 2014, the Company issued to GECC’s affiliate, GE Capital Equity Investments, Inc., a warrant pursuant to which GE Capital Equity Investments, Inc. received the right to purchase 114,213 shares of Company common stock for a ten-year period,  expiring on June 27, 2024, at an exercise price of $1.97 per share. The shares associated with the warrant were fully vested at the time of issuance. The value of the warrant was estimated on the date of grant to be $1.67 per share based upon the on the fair value of the underlying common stock, using the Black-Scholes option pricing model assuming a weighted-average expected stock price of volatility of 86.1%, an expected warrant life of ten years, an average risk-free interest rate of 2.63%, and a 0.0% average dividend yield. The warrant cost of $190,840 as calculated above was capitalized to other assets as a deferred financing cost and will be recognized as interest expense over the 48 months of the Loan Agreement.

The Company’s secured term loan with East West Bank was repaid in full at the closing, and the revolving line-of-credit with East West Bank, which had no outstanding balance, was terminated. East West Bank continues to hold warrants for the purchase of an aggregate of 163,590 shares of the Company’s common stock which were fully vested at the time of issuance. The unamortized cost of $75,796 at June 27, 2014, pertaining to the warrants, was recorded to interest expense.

(6)      Stockholders’ Equity

On June 9, 2011, the Company issued 95,500 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and 54,500 shares of Series A Exchangeable Preferred Stock (collectively, the “Series A Preferred Stock”), each with a par value $0.001 per share and which are convertible into authorized but unissued shares of common stock, par value $0.004 per share, of the Company. The Series A Exchangeable Preferred Stock has substantially identical terms to the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

The shares of Series A Preferred Stock were initially convertible at the option of the holder into common stock at a conversion price of $2.82 (the “Conversion Price”).  The Conversion Price was subject to standard weighted-average anti-dilution adjustments.  The Series A Preferred Stock terms contain anti-dilution provisions which modify the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock in the event that the Company issued any common stock at a price less than the Conversion Price during the three years after the original issue date of the Series A Preferred Stock. On July 22, 2013, upon completion of a public offering of the Company’s common stock, the Conversion Price was adjusted to $2.389 per share.
 
 
 
 
- 11 -

 
The stated value ($100.00 per share) of the Series A Preferred Stock accretes at an annual rate of 7% compounded quarterly.  Effective from the third anniversary of the closing, June 9, 2014, such accretion may be made in cash at the Company’s option.  The Series A Preferred Stock is subject to certain default provisions whereby the dividend rate would be increased by an additional 5% per annum. The Company’s Loan Agreement with GECC prohibits the payment of cash dividends. As of June 30, 2014, $3,592,376 in dividend accretion has accumulated on the Series A Preferred Stock.

The Company can force conversion of all, and not less than all, of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock into Company common stock as long as the closing price of its common stock is at least 250% of the Conversion Price, or $5.9725 per common share, for at least 20 of the 30 consecutive trading days immediately prior to the conversion, and the average daily trading volume is greater than 50,000 shares per day over the 30 consecutive trading days immediately prior to such conversion.  The Company’s ability to cause a conversion is subject to certain other conditions as provided pursuant to the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock.

The Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to a liquidation preference equal to the greater of 100% of the accreted value for each share of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding on the date of a liquidation plus all accrued and unpaid dividends or the amount a holder would have been entitled to had the holder converted the shares of Series A Preferred Stock into common stock immediately prior to the liquidation.  The Series A Preferred Stock votes together with the common stock as if converted on the original date of issuance.  Holders of Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to purchase their pro rata share of additional stock issuances in certain future financings.  Accordingly, based upon the liquidation value of the preferred stock at June 30, 2014, there were 7,782,493 shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock.

(7)       Loss Per Common Share Applicable to Common Stockholders

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing net loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if common stock equivalents such as unvested restricted common shares, outstanding warrants and options, or convertible preferred stock were exercised or converted into common stock.  For all periods reported, the Company incurred net losses. Therefore, for each period reported, diluted loss per share is equal to basic loss per share because the effect of including such common stock equivalents or other securities would have been anti-dilutive.

At June 30, 2014, stock options and warrants to purchase 2,562,000 and 717,204 shares of common stock, respectively, were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation as they would have been anti-dilutive. On an as-converted basis, 7,782,493 shares of common stock pertaining to the private placement of 150,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, were also excluded as they would have been anti-dilutive.

(1)  The intrinsic value of a stock option is the amount by which the market value, as of the applicable date of the underlying stock, exceeds the option exercise price.


The exercise period for all outstanding stock options may not exceed ten years from the date of grant. Stock options granted to employees and members of the Board of Directors vest typically not less than three years from the grant date. The Company attributes stock-based compensation cost to operations using the straight-line method over the applicable vesting period.

On June 27, 2014, in connection with the Company’s Loan Agreement with GECC, the Company issued to GECC’s affiliate GE Capital Equity Investments, Inc. a warrant to purchase 114,213 shares of Company common stock for a ten-year period, expiring on June 27, 2024, at an exercise price of $1.97 per share. The shares associated with the warrant were fully vested at the time of issuance.

On June 25, 2014, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the CAS Medical Systems, Inc. 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) which increased the maximum number of shares that can be issued under the Plan by 1,000,000 to 3,000,000. Awards that may be granted under the Plan include options, restricted stock and restricted stock units, and other stock-based awards. The purposes of the Plan are to make available to our key employees and directors, certain compensatory arrangements related to growth in value of our stock so as to generate an increased incentive to contribute to the Company’s financial success and prosperity; to enhance the Company’s ability to attract and retain exceptionally qualified individuals whose efforts can affect the Company’s financial growth and profitability; and to align, in general, the interests of employees and directors with the interests of our stockholders. As of June 30, 2014, 1,305,229 shares remain available for issuance under the Plan, as amended.

On June 25, 2014, the Company issued 25,380 shares of restricted stock to its non-employee members of the Board of Directors which vest ratably over 12 months from the date of grant. The grants were intended to approximate $10,000 in cash value to each member based upon the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The grants are typically issued following the Company’s annual stockholder meeting which was held on that date and form a standard part of our Board of Directors annual compensation.

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company issued a stock option to purchase 100,000 shares of Company common stock to a management consultant. The exercise price of the stock option grant is $2.09 per share, representing the closing price of the common stock on the grant date. The fair value of the option granted was estimated on the date of grant to be $1.74 per share using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, assuming a weighted-average expected stock price volatility of 76.03%, a weighted-average expected option term of ten years, an average risk-free interest rate of 2.62%, and a 0.0% average dividend yield. The stock option vests over a four-year period on each anniversary of the date of grant.

As of June 30, 2014, 226,214 restricted shares issued to employees and members of the Board of Directors remain issued and non-vested. The unamortized stock compensation expense associated with the restricted shares at June 30, 2014, was $112,000 and will be recognized through the second quarter of 2015.

Tissue oximetry product revenues of $6,033,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, were $1,584,000, or 36%, above the $4,449,000 reported for the same period in the prior year reflecting solid gains in monitor and sensor sales.

Traditional vital signs monitoring product revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014, decreased $648,000, or 11%, to $5,521,000 from $6,169,000 reported for the same period in the prior year as a result of reductions in sales of OEM technology products. Lower OEM technology sales to one international customer represented nearly 50% of the overall decline in OEM sales.

Sales of all products to the U.S. market accounted for $9,147,000, or 79%, of the total revenues reported for the six months ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $958,000, or 12%, from the $8,189,000 of U.S. sales reported for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  The increase represents the net effect of higher sales of tissue oximetry products which were partially offset by lower OEM technology product sales and lower service revenues.  International sales of all products accounted for $2,407,000, or 21%, of the total revenues reported for the six months ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $22,000, or 1%, from the $2,429,000 reported for the same period of the prior year.  Increases in tissue oximetry sales were offset by reductions in OEM technology product sales primarily to one customer.

Worldwide tissue oximetry product sales increased 36% to $6,033,000 for the first six months of 2014 from $4,449,000 for the first six months of 2013, reflecting solid gains in worldwide monitor and sensor sales. Domestic tissue oximetry product sales were $4,728,000, an increase of $1,243,000, or 36%, over the first six months of 2013 driven by increased sensor sales.  International tissue oximetry product sales were $1,305,000, an increase of $341,000, or 35%, from the first six months of 2013 as a result of the increased monitor sales.

Gross profit was $2,384,000, or 40.8% of sales, for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $1,918,000, or 38.0% of sales for the same period of the prior year. Gross profit was $4,727,000, or 40.9% of sales, for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $4,143,000, or 39.0% of sales for the same period of the prior year. The improvement for both periods reported resulted primarily from increased FORE-SIGHT sales which contain comparatively favorable gross margin rates largely as a result of our next-generation FORE-SIGHT ELITE technology, and reduced manufacturing spending and variances. Partially offsetting these improvements were reductions in gross margin rates on the traditional monitoring products. Management expects gross profit rates to continue to improve during 2014 as FORE-SIGHT ELITE sensor sales continue to expand and become an increasing percentage of the Company’s overall sales through the acquisition of new customers and upgrades by existing customers.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014, decreased $88,000, or 2%, to $4,403,000 from $4,490,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Operating expenses for the first six months of 2014 decreased $114,000, or 1%, to $8,511,000 from $8,625,000 for the same period of the prior year.

Research and development expenses decreased $168,000, or 16%, to $862,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $1,030,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. R&D expenses decreased $338,000, or 16%, to $1,744,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $2,082,000 for the same period of the prior year. The reduction for both periods was primarily related to engineering project spending and salaries and related benefits.

Selling, general and administrative (“S,G&A”) expenses rose $79,000, or 2%, to $3,540,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $3,461,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Increased legal costs associated with the Company’s settlement of its litigation with Nellcor Puritan Bennett, and sales demonstration equipment depreciation, were primarily responsible for the overall increase in S,G&A expenses. Partially offsetting these increases were reductions in trade show expenses and product samples. S,G&A expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2014, were $6,767,000 compared to $6,543,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013, an increase of $224,000, or 3%. Sales expansion costs and sales demonstration equipment depreciation were primarily responsible for the increase. Management expects operating expenses to decrease from second quarter 2014 levels for the duration of the 2014 calendar year.

Interest expense of $255,000 and $341,000 for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2014, respectively, reflects the borrowing costs related to Company’s term debt agreement and includes a $168,000 charge for the unamortized balance of the deferred financing costs pertaining to the Company’s termination of its loan agreements with East West Bank commensurate with the new loan agreements consummated with General Electric Capital Corporation (“GECC”).

Other income of $403,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013, included $396,000 of income related to the sale and demutualization of one of the Company’s commercial insurance providers.

The Company does not expect to record taxable income during its 2014 fiscal year. Income tax benefits that may be generated during 2014 would be offset by a deferred income tax asset valuation allowance. Management established the valuation allowance as of December 31, 2009, as a result of cumulative pre-tax losses and its estimates of future taxable income. Management has continued to perform the required analysis regarding the realization of our deferred income tax assets, concluding that a full valuation allowance is warranted.

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $6,195,000, compared to $8,190,000 as of December 31, 2013. Working capital decreased $275,000 to $10,456,000 as of June 30, 2014, from $10,731,000 as of December 31, 2013.

Cash used in operations for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $3,317,000, compared to cash used in operations of $5,080,000 for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in cash used from operations over the prior year period primarily related to lower operating losses before non-cash charges and the changes in working capital items, largely accounts payable and accrued expenses.

Cash used in investing activities was $973,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to cash provided by investing activities of $359,000 for the same period in the prior year. Increased expenditures for property and equipment of $923,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were primarily comprised of FORE-SIGHT cerebral oximeters for customer placements, upgrades of existing accounts to the next-generation FORE-SIGHT ELITE technology and demonstration purposes. Cash provided of $359,000 for the prior year six-month period was generated by short-term investments of $493,000 which pertained to the transfer of funds from fully-matured certificates of deposit classified as short-term investments to the Company’s principal operating account and $396,000 of cash from the sale and demutualization of the Company’s insurance provider during January 2013.

As a result of the Company’s launch of its next-generation FORE-SIGHT oximetry technology and its upgrade of its first-generation FORE-SIGHT oximetry monitors placed with customers in the U.S., the Company expects to continue to incur capital expenditures during 2014. Those estimated expenditures are in addition to the expenditures required to place FORE-SIGHT monitors into new customer accounts as well other normal recurring expenditures for property and equipment.

Cash provided by financing activities was $2,295,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, and reflects the net proceeds after transaction costs from the Company’s term debt agreement consummated with GECC on June 27, 2014, as described below and the concurrent payoff of the Company’s term loan agreement with East West Bank. Cash provided of $1,498,000 for the prior year period reflects the amendment to the Company’s agreement with East West Bank under which the Company increased its term debt borrowings by $1,500,000.

On June 27, 2014, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with GECC.  Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, GECC provided the Company with a 48-month secured term loan in the amount of $7,500,000 (the “Term Loan”) and a Revolving Loan in the maximum amount of $2,500,000 (the “Revolver”).  The Term Loan and the Revolver each mature on June 27, 2018.  The obligations under the Loan Agreement are secured by a lien on substantially all assets of the Company.

The Term Loan bears interest on the outstanding daily balance thereof, at a fixed rate of 9.29%.  Under the Term Loan, 36 equal payments of $202,703 commence on July 1, 2015, with one final payment in an amount equal to the remaining principal balance on the final maturity date. Principal payments under the Term Loan may be deferred for an additional six months if the Company reaches certain financial targets at April 30, 2015.

Revolver advances will bear interest at a floating rate equal to 5.5% plus the higher of 1.5% per annum or GECC’s base rate determined by a LIBOR-based formula.  Maximum borrowings under the Revolver are based upon the Company’s eligible accounts receivable as defined in the Loan Agreement. The amount available for borrowing under the Revolver as of June 30, 2014, was $1,859,000. There were no borrowings under the Revolver as of June 30, 2014.

The Company has the right to prepay loans under the Loan Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time.  If the Term Loan is prepaid prior to maturity, an additional fee of 2% of the Term Loan amount is due if such prepayment takes place within one year from the closing date. Thereafter, the additional fee declines to 1% for any prepayment taking place after such first anniversary and prior to the scheduled maturity date.  Amounts prepaid under the Term Loan may not be re-borrowed.  Upon repayment of the Term Loan at any time, GECC is entitled to an additional fee equal to 4% of the Term Loan amount, or $300,000.

The Loan Agreement contains customary affirmative covenants, including covenants regarding the payment of taxes and other obligations, maintenance of insurance, reporting requirements, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Further, the Loan Agreement contains customary negative covenants limiting the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, among other things, to grant liens on the pledged collateral, incur additional indebtedness, make certain investments and acquisitions, and dispose of assets outside the ordinary course of business. The Loan Agreement also contains a financial covenant requiring the Company to maintain a continuing level of cash plus available borrowing capacity based on a formula.

The Company’s secured term loan with East West Bank was repaid in full at the closing, and the revolving line-of-credit with East West Bank, which had no outstanding balance, was terminated.

During May 2014, the Company financed the premiums for its property casualty insurance policies with short-term borrowings of $147,162. The notes will be repaid over a period of seven months in the amount of $21,394 including interest and will be paid in full as of December 31, 2014.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents plus available borrowings under its revolving loan totaling $8,055,000, which amounts are sufficient to support the Company’s operations for the next 12 months. The Company expects to continue to use cash from operations during the remainder of 2014 but at a steadily declining rate as its results from operations improve.  The Company’s new term debt agreement with GECC contains a 12-month interest-only payment feature with an additional six-month deferment should the Company reach certain financial targets at April 30, 2015. Management believes that it can reach those targets, thus enabling the Company to defer principal repayments until January 1, 2016 while it strives to reach positive cash flow from operations. The Company may seek additional capital to support its operations should the need arise. Management believes that it can obtain additional financing; however, there can be no assurance that such additional financing can be obtained on acceptable terms or at all.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The Company’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations are based on the condensed consolidated financial statements.  The preparation of these financial statements requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in them.  The Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates include those related to revenue recognition, the valuations of inventories and deferred income tax assets, measuring stock compensation and warranty costs, determining useful lives of intangible assets, and making asset impairment valuations.  The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.  For additional information about the Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates, see Item 7 and Note 2 to the financial statements included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.  There were no significant changes in critical accounting policies and estimates during the three months ended June 30, 2014.
 
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, issued Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires that an entity recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to its customers. In order to achieve this core principle, an entity should apply the following steps: (1) identify the contract(s) with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. This update will replace existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP when it becomes effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2017, with early adoption not permitted. The updated standard will permit the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this update on its consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 3.   QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The Company at times has certain exposures to market risk related to changes in interest rates. The Company holds no derivative securities for trading or other purposes and is not subject in any material respect to currency or other commodity risk.
 
 
ITEM 4.   CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company's Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms 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 on the definition of "disclosure controls and procedures" in Rule 13a-15(e).  In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management necessarily is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

The Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Company's Chief Executive Officer and the Company's Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2014. Based upon the foregoing evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of that date.

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2014, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Reference is made to the Certifications of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer about these and other matters attached as Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, and 32.1 to this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.
 
 

 
PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.   LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On July 2, 2014, a settlement was reached with Nellcor Puritan Bennett, LLC (“Nellcor”) with respect to the previously disclosed action filed by Nellcor against CASMED on December 29, 2011, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan alleging (i) breach of the settlement agreement with respect to a prior litigation matter between the parties, (ii) violation of the Lanham Act, (iii) common law unfair competition, and (iv) trade libel (the “Litigation”). Pursuant to the confidential settlement, CASMED issued payment of $275,000 to Nellcor and gave up its claims against Nellcor for legal fees, in exchange for an agreement by Nellcor to dismiss the Litigation with prejudice and to provide CASMED with certain covenants not to sue with respect to certain comparative advertising matters.  The settlement does not restrict CASMED’s current or future comparative advertising of its FORE-SIGHT® cerebral oximeter versus Nellcor’s INVOS® oximeter.  The parties also exchanged customary mutual releases.
