Winland Electronics Inc.
 
 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared by Winland Electronics, Inc. (the “Company” or “Winland”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for the preparation of interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2011.   The footnotes are in thousands unless noted.

The condensed balance sheet at December 31, 2010 has been derived from the audited financial statements as of that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statement presentation.

This financial information should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Management is required to make certain estimates and assumptions which affect the amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses reported.  Actual results could differ materially from these estimates and assumptions.

The Company evaluates events through the date the financial statements are filed for events requiring adjustment to or disclosure in the financial statements.

Discontinued Operations: Included in discontinued operations is Winland’s Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) operation. The sale of the EMS operations to a third party was completed on January 1, 2011 pursuant to the terms of an Asset Purchase Agreement dated November 15, 2010 (the “APA”). The transaction involved the sale of 100% of Winland’s EMS assets and assumptions of certain liabilities. The Company’s shareholders approved the sale on December 29, 2010.
 
The APA met the requirements of ASC 205-20 “Discontinued Operations” as being held for sale at December 31, 2010. Accordingly, the Company has restated the previously reported financial results to report the net results as a separate line in the statements of operations as “Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax” for all periods presented, and the assets and liabilities of EMS on the balance sheets have been separately classified as “Assets/Liabilities of discontinued operations”. In accordance with ASC 205-20-S99-3 “Allocation of Interest to Discontinued Operations”, the Company elected to not allocate interest expense to the discontinued operations where the debt is not directly attributed to or related to the discontinued operations.  Notes to the financial statements have been revised to reflect only the results of continuing operations (see Notes 2 and 8).

Note 2.  Segment Reporting

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 280, Segment Reporting, requires an enterprise to report segment information in the same way that management internally organizes its business for assessing performance and making decisions regarding the allocation of resources.  The Company evaluates the performance of operating segments and allocates resources based on profit and loss from operations.

For interim reporting periods in 2010, the Company had two reporting segments; EMS and Proprietary Products.  As stated in Note 1, the Company sold the EMS segment effective January 1, 2011.  Based on this, the financial information presented on the face of the financial statements represents one segment.  See Note 8 for more information regarding the EMS segment and discontinued operations.

Note 3.  Major Customers

The Company has one customer that accounted for 10 percent (10%) or more of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 as follows:
 
   
For the Three Months Ended June 30,
 
Sales percentage:
 
2011
   
2010
 
Customer A
    46 %     48 %
                 
   
For the Six Months Ended June 30,
 
Sales percentage:
    2011       2010  
Customer A
    50 %     45 %

The Company had net receivables (as a percentage of total receivables) from the above customer as follows:

   
June 30,
 
Accounts receivable percentage:
 
2011
   
2010
 
Customer A
    46 %     65 %
 

Loss per common share: Basic loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including potentially dilutive shares such as the options and warrants to purchase shares of common stock at various amounts per share (see Note 7).  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, the diluted loss per share was the same as basic loss per share since the effects of options and warrants would have been anti-dilutive. The diluted share calculation excluded 190,000 weighted average shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 368,900 weighted average shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010.

Note 5.  Inventories

The components of inventories were as follows net of reserves:

   
June 30, 2011
   
December 31, 2010
 
Finished goods, net
  $ 288     $ 112  
 
Winland estimates excess, slow moving and obsolete reserves for inventory on a quarterly basis based upon order demand.  Management’s estimated valuation reserve for slow moving and obsolete finished goods inventories was $29 at June 30, 2011 and $34 at December 31, 2010.


Winland provides a limited warranty for its proprietary products for a period of one year, which requires Winland to repair or replace defective product at no cost to the customer or refund the purchase price.  The reserve reflecting historical experience and potential warranty issues is determined based on specific experience factors including rate of return by item, average weeks outstanding from sale to return, average cost of repair and relation of repair cost to original sales price.  Any specific known warranty issues are considered individually.   These are analyzed to determine the probability and the amount of financial exposure, and a specific reserve is established.  The allowance for rework and warranty costs was $10 and $8 at June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Note 7. Stock-Based Awards

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company granted 70,000 options which had weighted average grant date fair values of $0.44 determined using an expected dividend yield of 0.0 percent, an expected stock volatility of 80.3%, a risk-free interest rate of 1.8% and expected option lives of 4.7 years.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company granted 22,000 options which had weighted average grant date fair values of $0.59 determined using an expected dividend yield of 0.0 percent, an expected stock volatility of 82.8%, a risk-free interest rate of 2.4% and expected option lives of 5.0 years.  For the six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company recognized a net benefit of $14 to compensation expense associated with stock based compensation plans which were cancelled on January 1, 2011 due to the separation of the Company’s former chief executive officer and chief financial officer offset by compensation expense associated with options issued for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company recognized expense of $16 related to compensation expense for stock based compensation awards.

At June 30, 2011, there was $1 of unrecognized compensation cost related to share-based payments which is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 0.2 years.

Note 8. Discontinued Operations

On November 15, 2010, Winland entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”) with Nortech Systems, Incorporated (“Nortech”).  Pursuant to the terms of the APA, Winland sold to Nortech the Company’s EMS business segment, which consisted of the design and manufacture of printed circuit board assemblies and higher level products sold mainly to original equipment manufacturer customers.  The sale of the EMS segment to Nortech was completed on January 1, 2011 pursuant to the terms of the APA and approved by the Company’s shareholders on December 29, 2010.

Aggregate consideration for the Asset Sale consisted of the following (not in thousands): (i) $1,542,389 in cash, of which $1,042,389 was paid at closing, $250,000 was paid on July 1, 2011 and $250,000 will be paid on October 1, 2011, (ii) a minimum inventory consumption obligation of at least $2,200,000 for 24 months after the closing of the Asset sale, and (ii) the assumption of substantially all of the liabilities of the EMS Business Segment.  The terms of the APA and the amount of the consideration for the Asset Sale were negotiated by the Company and Nortech on an arms-length basis.  The sale of the EMS business on January 1, 2011, net of transaction costs, resulted in a loss of approximately $14,000.  The Company recognized an additional gain of approximately $112,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2011, upon the sale of inventory to Nortech under the minimum purchase agreement for inventory that had previously been reserved.

Additionally, in connection with the Asset Sale, the Company entered into (i) a manufacturing agreement with Nortech, whereby Nortech will manufacture certain products for the Company related to the production of the Company’s proprietary monitoring devices, (ii) a lease agreement whereby the Company leased to Nortech, for six years, its office and manufacturing facility and improvements located at 1950 Excel Drive, Mankato Minnesota, 56001, and (iii) a sublease agreement with Nortech whereby Nortech subleased to the Company 1,000 square feet of the building that the Company leased to Nortech pursuant to the lease agreement, and (iv) non-compete agreements with the Company and certain key employees for a period of two-years.  In May 2011, Winland amended the sub-lease agreement with Nortech increasing its leased space to 1,900 square feet of office space at $5.25 per square foot.

Assets and liabilities of EMS segment (discontinued operations) were as follows:

There was no income tax expense or benefit from discontinued operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 or 2010.

Winland and Nortech entered into a manufacturing agreement effective January 1, 2011 pursuant to which Nortech will manufacture certain products for Winland through July 1, 2011.  After July 1, 2011, Winland and Nortech can negotiate in good faith for additional terms mutually agreeable to both companies.  The agreed upon transfer price for products manufactured will be Winland’s current standard manufacturing costs at time of sale plus a five percent (5%) mark-up during the six months after the date of the agreement, seven percent (7%) during the seventh through ninth months after the date of the agreement and ten percent (10%) during the tenth through the twelfth months after the date of the agreement.

On January 1, 2011, Nortech entered into a commercial building lease (lease) with the Company to lease the office and manufacturing facility located at 1950 Excel Drive, Mankato, MN from the Company.  The term of the lease ends January 1, 2017 with Nortech required to pay rent of $5.25 per square foot ($304,500 annually) commencing on January 1, 2012.  The lease provides for a 2.5% increase on the third anniversary and requires Nortech to pay all operating costs including real estate taxes.  Nortech also has the right of first refusal upon sale of the property as defined in the lease.

On January 2, 2011, Winland entered into a sub-lease agreement with Nortech to lease 1,000 square feet of office space at 1950 Excel Drive, Mankato, MN effective January 1, 2011 and expiring December 31, 2011 at $5.25 per square foot.  In May 2011, Winland amended the sub-lease agreement with Nortech increasing its leased space to 1,900 square feet of office space at $5.25 per square foot.

The Company recognized a $98,000 gain on the sale of EMS assets to Nortech as of June 30, 2011.  The following table shows the calculation of the gain (not in thousands):

Winland Electronics Inc.
 
Notes to Condensed Financial Statements
 
Note 9.  Income Taxes
 
The Company calculates its income tax expense by estimating the annual effective tax rate and applying that rate to the year-to-date ordinary income (loss) at the end of the period.  The Company records a tax valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that it will not be able to recover the value of its deferred tax assets.
 
As of June 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company calculated its estimated annualized effective tax rate at 0% and 0%, respectively.  The Company recognized an income tax expense of $9 based on its $435 pre-tax loss from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  The $9 tax expense is related to a settlement reached with the state of Minnesota regarding the Company’s research and development credits.  The Company recognized an income tax expense of $2 based on its $893 pre-tax loss from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2010.
 
The Company recognizes 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.
 
The Company settled an examination with the IRS for the 2004 - 2007 tax years during 2010 and settled an examination with the State of Minnesota for its 2003 through 2006 tax years during the first quarter of 2011. The years 2007 through 2010 remain open for examination by other state agencies. Due to the Minnesota settlement, $68 of unrecognized tax benefits was released during the first quarter. No additional unrecognized tax benefits were identified during the first or second quarters of 2011.  The Company received a refund from the IRS in April 2011 in the amount of $205 in addition to interest income of $11.

The Company recognizes interest accrued on uncertain tax positions as well as interest received from favorable tax settlements within interest expense.  The Company recognizes penalties accrued on unrecognized tax benefits within general and administrative expenses.  As of June 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company recognized no interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions.
 
The Company does not anticipate any significant changes to the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits in the next twelve months.

Note 10. Financing Arrangement

Effective January 3, 2011, Winland and TCI Business Capital, Inc. (“TCI”), entered into a Factoring, Security and Service Agreement (the “Agreement”).  The Agreement allowed TCI to purchase from the Company certain eligible accounts receivable based on TCI’s sole and absolute discretion and expired April 2011.  Under the agreement, TCI paid the Company ninety percent (90%) of the eligible account prior to the receivable actually being paid to the Company and one hundred percent (100%) of the eligible account once payment had been made to the Company.  The Company paid a factoring fee to TCI in the amount of two percent (2%) and paid interest on inventory and fixed asset advances in the amount of twelve percent (12%) above the prime rate of interest.  The Company agreed to generate a minimum monthly sales volume of at least Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) for a period of twenty-four (24) months.  In April 2011, the Company and TCI terminated the Agreement for a fee of $5,000.

The Company was in violation of certain financial covenants on its mortgage note payable with US Bank as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, and, as such, US Bank has the ability to demand repayment of the mortgage note payable.

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

Winland is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of critical condition monitoring devices.  Products including EnviroAlert, WaterBug, TempAlert and Vehicle Alert, are designed to monitor critical conditions for industries including healthcare and medical, grocery and food service, commercial and industrial, agriculture and residential.  Proudly made in the USA, Winland products are compatible with any hardwire or wireless alarm system and are available worldwide.  Headquartered in Mankato, MN, Winland trades on the NYSE Amex stock exchange under the symbol WEX.  These proprietary Winland branded and trademarked products accounted for 100% of the Company’s revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Our second quarter continued to be filled with positive activity as we continue redefining Winland Electronics.  We experienced seven percent sequential quarterly sales growth, the result of a large project sale to a new customer and continued strong sales to our existing customers.  Our customers continue to find value in our products and most importantly, more recognition that our products are an integral part of critical condition monitoring solutions.

As we announced on July 18, 2011, we are continuing our investment in our product offering with the addition of the EnviroAlert EA800-ip.  This product enhancement to our current EA800 adds Ethernet connectivity to allow remote monitoring and modification of sensor settings.  We are excited about this product and believe it will add value to our current customer base and provide opportunities in vertical markets outside the security channel.  We plan to globally debut the product in mid-September at the ASIS International Show in Orlando, Florida.

As we progressed through the second quarter, we recognized additional sales of EMS related inventories to Nortech.  These sales provided additional cash flow and a net gain on the sale of the EMS business.

Encouraged by all of the above, our financial results still lacked a positive result as we incurred a loss for the quarter.  Strategic sales growth through market awareness and the planned introduction of the EA800-ip along with continued management of operating costs are focus areas we anticipate will deliver future profitability.

Loss from discontinued operations

On January 1, 2011, the Company sold its EMS business to Nortech.  Winland recognized a gain from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $98,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to a loss of $467,000 for the same period a year ago.  The gain was the result of additional inventory sales to Nortech above the $2.2 million commitment which allowed the Company to reduce the reserve for obsolescence for inventory held for discontinued operations by $112,000.  Net sales from discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 were $2,588,000 from raw, finished and work-in-process inventories sold to Nortech compared to net sales of $8,094,000 for finished goods sold to EMS customers for six months ended June 30, 2010.  The Company recorded a gross loss from discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2010 of $14,000 compared to no gross profit on the inventory sold to Nortech for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as the Company is selling inventory to Nortech at historical cost.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Operating activities used cash of $581,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from the net loss of $346,000, a reduction of  accrued expenses of $185,000 primarily related to compensation payments of $142,000, net increase in finished goods inventories of $176,000 for future customer sales and an increase in accounts receivable balances of $101,000 related to increased finished goods sold  offset by federal and state income tax refunds received of $277,000.  For the six months ended June 30, 2010, operating activities used cash of $650,000 resulting from the net loss of $1,362,000 and an increase in account receivable balances  of $789,000 primarily related to finished goods sales to EMS customers partially offset by increased accounts payable balances of $560,000 relating to purchases of raw material inventories for discontinued operations and $397,000 of non-cash depreciation expense.

Investing activities provided cash of $3,089,000 primarily from the sale of EMS business unit and the sale of related inventory from discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the use of cash of $13,000 used to acquire capital equipment for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  Financing activities used cash of $1,249,000 to pay down the Company’s accounts receivable agreement for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to cash provided of $881,000 from borrowings on the Company’s revolving line-of-credit for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  Cash used to pay down long-term borrowings was $55,000 and $187,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

The current ratio was 2.7 to 1 at June 30, 2011 and 1.3 to 1 at December 31, 2010.  Working capital equaled $2.1 million on June 30, 2011, compared to $1.3 million on December 31, 2010.

The Company’s future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the timing and amount of its revenues and its investment decisions, which may affect the Company’s ability to generate additional cash.  The Company was in violation of certain financial covenants on its mortgage note payable with US Bank as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, and, as such, US Bank has the ability to demand repayment of the mortgage note payable.  The Company’s management believes that its cash balance, cash receivable from the sale of the EMS business unit, and expected cash in the first six months of 2012 from leasing the building will be adequate to fund its cash requirements for working capital, investing and financing activities during the next year.
