NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
June 30, 2007

Note A: Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (referred to herein as “we,” “us,” “our” and the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. It is the opinion of management that the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments consisting of normal recurring accruals considered necessary for a fair presentation. Operating results for the six-month period ended June 30, 2007 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2007. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Note D: Stock-based Compensation

In 2006, we adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (“SFAS”) No. 123(R), Share Based Payment, which requires all share-based payments, including grants of stock options, to be recognized in the income statement as an operating expense, based on their fair value over the requisite service period. We recorded $73,000 and $137,000 of related compensation expense included in general and administrative expense for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively. Options to purchase 31,000 shares and 106,000 shares at the weighted average exercise price of $15.85 and $14.68 and options to purchase -0- shares and -0- shares were granted for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively. As of June 30, 2007, $626,000 of total unrecognized compensation expense related to non-vested stock option awards is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 3.0 years.

We used the Black-Scholes option pricing model to determine the weighted average fair value of options during the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2007.

Our stock options generally vest over one to five years of service and have a contractual life of four to ten years. We have 157,200 shares available for grants under our 2005 Stock Incentive Plan. The following table summarizes information about the stock options outstanding at June 30, 2007:

Note E: Income Taxes

In June 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Bound (“FASB”) issued FIN No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxesan Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (“FIN 48”). FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with SFAS No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes. FIN 48 clarifies the application of SFAS No. 109 by defining a criterion that an individual tax position must meet for any part of the benefit of that position to be recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. Additionally, FIN 48 provides guidance on measurement, derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. FIN 48 was effective for us on January 1, 2007.

We adopted the provisions of FIN 48 on January 1, 2007. Previously, we had accounted for tax contingencies in accordance with SFAS No. 5, Accounting for Contingencies. As required by FIN 48, which clarifies SFAS No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, we recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority. At the adoption date, we applied FIN 48 to all tax positions for which the statute of limitations remained open. At January 1, 2007, our existing reserve for income tax uncertainties was not material. We recognized no additional liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits as a result of the implementation of FIN 48.

We are subject to income taxes in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various state jurisdictions and certain international tax jurisdictions. Tax regulations within each jurisdiction are subject to the interpretation of the related tax laws and regulations and require significant judgment to apply. Generally, the statute of limitations is closed for tax years preceding 2003.

Note F: New Accounting Pronouncements:

On February 15, 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities – Including an Amendment of FASB No. 115. SFAS No. 159 permits an entity to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value. The fair value option established by SFAS No. 159 permits all entities to choose to measure eligible items at fair value at specified election dates. SFAS No. 159 will be effective for us as of December 31, 2007. We are currently evaluating the impact this pronouncement will have on our consolidated statement of financial position.

In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements. SFAS No. 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurement but does not require any new fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 will be effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007 and interim periods within those fiscal years. We have not evaluated the impact of SFAS No. 157 on our financial reporting.

Item 2.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Overview:

We have developed proprietary machine vision technology that converts real world information into digital electronic signals for processing by computer and have applied it to traffic management problems. We use a proprietary version of machine vision technology and commercially available components and video cameras to create our core family of products - the Autoscope® Video Vehicle Detection System. The Autoscope system is used by traffic managers primarily to improve the flow of vehicle traffic and to enhance safety at intersections, main thoroughfares, freeways and tunnels.

Autoscope systems are sold to distributors and end users of traffic management products in North America, the Caribbean and Latin America by Econolite Control Products, Inc. (Econolite), our licensee in those locations. We also sell Autoscope products to distributors and end users in Europe and Asia through our European and Hong Kong subsidiaries, respectively.

The majority of our revenue is derived from royalties received from Econolite, with a second primary source of revenue received from product sales in Europe and Asia. End users of the Autoscope system throughout the world are generally funded by government agencies responsible for traffic management and/or traffic law enforcement.

Our success is primarily dependent upon continued governmental funding of “Intelligent Transportation Systems”, such as machine vision, for traffic control; our ability, through Econolite and our sales representatives in Europe and Asia, to successfully market the Autoscope System to individual traffic managers; and our ability to develop new machine vision products and applications that enhance the traffic manager’s ability to cost-effectively improve traffic flow, safety and security.

Our quarterly revenues and operating results have varied significantly in the past due to the seasonality of our business, with the second and third quarters being the strongest and the first and fourth quarters being the weakest, generally due to weather conditions that make roadway construction more difficult. We expect such seasonality to continue for the foreseeable future. Our international revenues have a significant large project component resulting in a varying revenue stream. Accordingly, we believe that quarter-to-quarter comparisons of our financial results should not be relied upon as an indication of our future performance. No assurance can be given that we will be able to achieve or maintain profitability on a quarterly or annual basis in the future.

Critical Accounting Policies:

Goodwill. Goodwill and other intangible assets with indefinite lives are not amortized but are tested for impairment annually or whenever an impairment indicator arises. Our recorded goodwill relates to our subsidiary, Flow Traffic Ltd. (Flow Traffic), and is tested for impairment on December 31 of each year. The impairment test requires us to estimate the fair value of our subsidiary and then compare it to the carrying value of the subsidiary. If the carrying value exceeds the fair value, further analysis is performed to determine if there is an impairment loss. We estimate the fair value by using the income approach, where fair value is dependent on the present value of projected future economic benefits to be derived from ownership of Flow Traffic. If Flow Traffic does not provide the future economic benefits we project, the fair value of this subsidiary may become impaired, and we would need to record an impairment loss.

Revenue recognition. Royalty income is recognized based upon a monthly royalty report provided to us by Econolite. This report is prepared by Econolite based on its sales of products we developed and is based on sales delivered and accepted by its customers. We recognize revenue from international sales at

the time of delivery and acceptance and when the selling price is fixed or determinable and collectibility is reasonably assured.

International sales decreased 18.0% for the second quarter of 2007 versus the comparable quarter of 2006 and 16.9% for the first half of 2007 over the comparable period of 2006 primarily due to two large sales in the Asian market made in 2006. Royalty income decreased 8.1% for the 2007 second quarter and 1.9% for the 2007 first half versus the comparable periods in 2006. We believe this is due in part to our

transition to the Autoscope Terra line of products and its probable impact on the timing of end customer purchases. Although we cannot predict how long the transition will impact end customer decisions, we do not expect the impact to be long-term in nature.

Gross profit declines for international sales are due to the decrease in sales in these markets. The gross profit margin on international sales increased modestly in the second quarter and first half of 2007 from comparable periods in 2006 due to a change in mix of international sales. Gross profit on royalties decreased 3.7% in the first quarter of 2007 versus the comparable period in 2006. The decrease was due to lower royalties, but it was partially offset by the expiration of royalties to the University of Minnesota, which ceased in July 2006. For the first half, gross profit on royalties increased 2.9% in 2007 versus 2006, with lower royalty revenue being more than offset by the end of royalty expense to the University of Minnesota. We anticipate for the second half of 2007 that royalty gross profit margins will be 100% and that gross profit margins on international sales will decrease due to higher manufacturing costs and pricing concessions on non-Terra inventory.

Operating expenses increased 4.8% and 7.7%, respectively, in the second quarter and first half of 2007 over the comparable periods in 2006 primarily due to added staff in each category of operating expense along with related payroll taxes, benefits and infrastructure to support the added staff. Secondarily, we incurred costs in 2007 to promote the launch of the Terra line. These increases were partially offset by lower legal and stock option expense in 2007 versus 2006. Income from operations decreased 24.7% and 13.8% in the second quarter and first half of 2007, respectively, versus comparable periods in 2006 mainly due to decreased revenue and, to a lesser extent, increases in operating expenses. We anticipate that operating expenses for the second half of 2007 will continue to run ahead of 2006 levels in each of the categories.

Other income, net for the second quarter and first half of 2007 increased significantly over the comparable periods in 2006. This is primarily due to the Econolite settlement made in 2006, which offset most interest income in that year. Other income, net for the second quarter and first half of 2007 is substantially all interest income and is predominantly tax-exempt interest. Income taxes decreased in the second quarter and first half of 2007 compared to 2006 primarily due to a credit carryback recognized in 2007.

Net income for the second quarter of 2007 was $702,000, a decrease of 1.3% from the comparable quarter of 2006, and $1.3 million for the first half of 2007, an increase of 3.6% over the comparable period of 2006, due to the factors discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources:

At June 30, 2007, we had $11.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $3.1 million in investments, compared to $11.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $4.1 million in investments at December 31, 2006.

Net cash used in operating activities was $1.0 million in the first half of 2007, compared to net cash provided of $2.6 million in 2006. The primary reason for the change was that we received unusually large royalty payments on accounts receivable from Econolite in 2006 for sales it made in the fourth quarter of 2005. Additionally, in the first half of 2007, inventory increased by $753,000 primarily due to the Terra product transition. We sold $1.0 million in investments, net, in 2007 as opposed to purchasing $1.8 million in investments in 2006.

We have a credit agreement that provides up to $1.0 million in short-term borrowings at prime rate (effective rate of 8.25% at June 30, 2007), expiring May 31, 2008. Loans would be secured by inventories, accounts receivable and equipment, and the bank would have the right of setoff against checking, savings and other accounts we have with the bank. We had no outstanding borrowings under

11



Table of Contents

the credit agreement in 2007 or 2006. We expect to renew the agreement at substantially the same terms and conditions prior to expiration.

We believe that cash and cash equivalents on hand at June 30, 2007, our $1.0 million revolving line of credit and cash provided by operating activities will satisfy our projected working capital needs, investing activities and other cash requirements in the foreseeable future.

Income Taxes:

In June 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Bound (“FASB”) issued FIN No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxesan Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (FIN 48). FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with Statement of Accounting Standard (“SFAS”) No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes. FIN 48 clarifies the application of SFAS No. 109 by defining a criterion that an individual tax position must meet for any part of the benefit of that position to be recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. Additionally, FIN 48 provides guidance on measurement, derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. FIN 48 was effective for us on January 1, 2007.

We adopted the provisions of FIN 48 on January 1, 2007. Previously, we had accounted for tax contingencies in accordance with SFAS No. 5, Accounting for Contingencies. As required by FIN 48, which clarifies SFAS No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, we recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 % likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority. At the adoption date, we applied FIN 48 to all tax positions for which the statute of limitations remained open. At January 1, 2007, our existing reserve for income tax uncertainties was not material. We recognized no additional liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits as a result of the implementation of FIN 48.

We are subject to income taxes in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various state jurisdictions and certain international tax jurisdictions. Tax regulations within each jurisdiction are subject to the interpretation of the related tax laws and regulations and require significant judgment to apply. Generally, the statute of limitations is closed for tax years preceding 2003.

Cautionary Statement:

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements represent our expectations or beliefs concerning future events and can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “expects,” “believes,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates” or other comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause such differences include, but are not limited to:

 

 

 

 

dependence on a single product for most of our revenue;

 

 

 

budget constraints of governmental entities that purchase our products;

 

 

 

 

continuing ability of our licensee to pay royalties owed;

 

 

 

 

dependence on third parties for manufacturing and marketing our products;

12



Table of Contents

 

 

 

 

dependence on single-source suppliers to meet manufacturing needs;

 

 

 

 

failure to secure adequate protection for our intellectual property rights;

 

 

 

 

development of a competing product by another business using the underlying technology included in the patent we had licensed from the University of Minnesota, which expired in 2006;

 

 

 

 

our inability to develop new applications and product enhancements;

 

 

 

 

our inability to effectively respond to low-cost local competitors in Asia and elsewhere;

 

 

 

 

our inability to properly manage any growth in revenue and/or production requirements;

 

 

 

 

the influence over our voting stock by insiders;

 

 

 

 

our inability to hire and retain key scientific and technical personnel;

 

 

 

 

our inability to achieve and maintain effective internal controls;

 

 

 

 

our inability to comply with international regulatory restrictions over hazardous substances and electronic waste; and

 

 

 

 

conditions beyond our control such as war, terrorist attacks, health epidemics and economic recession.

We caution that the forward-looking statements made in this report or in other announcements made by us are further qualified by the risk factors set forth in Item 1A. to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006.

 

 

Item 3.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Our foreign sales and results of operations are subject to the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. We have not hedged our exposure to translation gains and losses. A 10% adverse change in foreign currency rates would not have a material effect on our results of operations or financial position.

 

 

Item 4T.

Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act)). Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

During the fiscal quarter covered by this report, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 2.

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

(a) We issued the following equity securities in the following transactions, which were not registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (Securities Act): in October 2006, we granted options to purchase 18,000 shares of our common stock to one Director with an exercise price of $12.61 per share; and in January 2007, we granted options to one executive officer to purchase 50,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $14.24 per share and options to another executive officer to purchase 25,000 shares at an exercise price of $14.10 per share. All of these options were granted under the Image Sensing Systems, Inc. 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (Plan). We received no proceeds upon making these grants. The grants were made in reliance on the exemption provided by Section 4(2) of and Rule 506 of Regulation D under the Securities Act. On and after April 30, 2007, grants of options under the Plan are registered under our Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on that date.
