FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Blonder Tongue Reports Year End and Fourth Quarter 2021 Results

 

OLD BRIDGE, NJ / March 31, 2022 / Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE American: BDR) announced its sales and results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Commenting on the Company’s year end and fourth quarter results, Chief Executive Officer Ted Grauch noted, “Although the Company was able to realize positive net earnings for the full year of 2021, the global semiconductor supply chain bottlenecks and supply uncertainties had a significant negative impact on our fourth quarter financial performance, and a number of those supply chain issues have continued into this year. We have been managing through this challenging environment with a combination of product price increases to compensate for raw material premiums, coupled with additional operating cost reductions. Throughout 2021 we continued our investments in product development, focusing on areas that could achieve near-term revenue and income growth. We believe our operating expense management, together with the more modern, higher technology product mix, and recent new product announcements best demonstrates the progress Blonder Tongue Laboratories made during 2021.”

 

Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. net sales decreased $334,000 or 7.7% to $3,993,000 for the fourth quarter of 2021 from $4,327,000 for the comparable period in 2020. Net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $(927,000) or $(0.07) per share, compared to $(2,413,000) or $(0.23) per share for the comparable period in 2020.

 

The decrease in sales is primarily attributable to a decrease in sales of CPE products, DOCSIS data products, analog modulation products and coax distribution products offset in part by an increase in IP video encoder/transcoder products and our NXG IP video signal processing series of products. Sales of CPE products were $23,000 and $1,114,000, DOCSIS data products were $122,000 and $418,000, analog modulation products were $133,000 and $438,000, coax distribution products were $171,000 and $287,000, video encoder/transcoder products were $2,529,000 and $1,381,000 and our NXG series products were $614,000 and $135,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, net sales decreased $625,000 or 3.8% to $15,754,000 in 2021 from $16,379,000 in 2020. Net earnings for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was $84,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(7,474,000) or $(0.76) per share for the comparable period in 2020.

 

The decrease in sales is primarily attributable to a decrease in sales of CPE products, DOCSIS data products, analog modulation products and coax distribution products offset in part by an increase in IP video encoder/transcoder products and NXG IP video signal processing products. Sales of CPE products were $1,120,000 and $4,165,000, DOCSIS data products were $755,000 and $2,184,000, analog modulation products were $790,000 and $1,274,000, coax distribution products were $1,266,000 and $1,603,000, video encoder/transcoder products were $7,863,000 and $4,245,000 and our NXG series products were $1,924,000 and $705,000 in 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company experienced a reduction in CPE products during 2021 due to the deemphasis of this product line, which the Company expects to continue into 2022. The Company experienced a reduction in DOCSIS data products due to reduced demand caused by the pandemic as these products are used primarily in the hospitality and assisted living environments. The Company expects sales of these products to improve during 2022. The Company experienced a reduction in analog modulation products due to the continued market shift away from analog modulation solutions. The Company experienced a reduction in coax distribution products due to the reduced demand for legacy products. The Company expects the sales of the analog modulation and coax distribution products to continue to decline in 2022. The Company experienced an increase in video encoder/transcoder products and NXG products as these product lines represent newer products with advanced technologies and higher demand from customers. The Company expects sales of these product lines to remain at 2021 levels or increase in 2022, depending on conditions in the semiconductor supply chain. Although the Company does not expect overall sales to return to pre pandemic levels during 2022, the Company does expect overall sales to be higher during 2022, due to approximately $10,240,000 of sales backlog at December 31, 2021.

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity have been its existing cash balances, cash generated from operations, amounts available under the MidCap Business Credit LLC revolving credit facility (the “MidCap Facility”), amounts available under a subordinated loan facility and cash generated from sales of its common stock, as well as funds made available to the Company through participation in several federal government financial assistance programs implemented pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, including the Paycheck Protection Program and the Employee Retention Tax Credit. On a going-forward basis, the Company expects its primary sources of liquidity will be its existing cash balances, cash generated from operations and amounts available under the MidCap Facility. The Company also may seek to raise additional capital through the issuance of shares of common stock or other securities convertible into, or exercisable for, shares of common stock, although the Company cannot provide any assurances that this type of additional financing will be available on reasonable terms, or at all. During 2021, the Company received approximately $700,000 under the subordinated loan facility and approximately $492,000 in net proceeds from sales of common stock. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our becoming profitable in the future and having access to sufficient capital to execute our business plan and to meet our payment obligations on our debt financing arrangements and other financial obligations when they become due. The Company had approximately $92,000 and approximately $609,000 availability for borrowing under the MidCap Facility, as of December 31 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which is being filed today, includes an “Explanatory Paragraph-Going Concern” from its independent registered public accounting firm.  Although the Company has actively taken steps to address operating expenses and liquidity, there can be no assurance that those actions and others the Company intends to take in the future will be sufficient to address the concerns relating to the “Explanatory Paragraph-Going Concern.”

(unaudited)

 

Note 1 - Company and Basis of Consolidation

 

Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”) is a technology-development and manufacturing company that delivers television signal encoding, transcoding, digital transport, and broadband product solutions to the markets the Company serves, including the telecommunications, fiber optic and cable service provider markets, MDU market, the lodging/hospitality market and the institutional market, including campuses, hospitals, prisons and schools, primarily throughout the United States and Canada. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of March 31, 2022 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements include all adjustments, consisting primarily of normal recurring adjustments, which the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial position, operating results, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the periods presented. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2021 has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP for complete financial statements have been condensed or omitted pursuant to SEC rules and regulations. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which was filed with the SEC on March 31, 2022. The results of the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022 or for any future interim period.

 

Note 2- Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

(a) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company’s significant estimates include stock-based compensation and reserves related to accounts receivable, inventories and deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

(b) Loss Per Share

 

Loss per share is calculated in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) ASC Topic 260 “Earnings Per Share,” which provides for the calculation of “basic” and “diluted” loss per share. Basic loss per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share reflect, in periods in which they have a dilutive effect, the effect of potential issuances of common shares.

 

The diluted share base excludes the following potential common shares due to their antidilutive effect:

(c) Amortization of Debt Discount

 

The Company accounts for the amortization of the debt discount utilizing the effective interest method.

 

(d) Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“Topic 740”). The list of changes is comprehensive; however, the changes will not significantly impact the Company due to the full valuation allowance that is recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets. Early adoption of ASU 2019-12 is permitted, including adoption in any interim period for public business entities for periods for which financial statements have not yet been issued. An entity that elects to early adopt the amendments in an interim period should reflect any adjustments as of the beginning of the annual period that includes that interim period. Additionally, an entity that elects early adoption must adopt all the amendments in the same period. The Company adopted ASU 2019-12 in 2021. The adoption of this new standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or financial statement disclosure.

 

(e) Going Concern and COVID-19

 

Our business has been materially and adversely affected by the outbreak of the Coronavirus or COVID-19. COVID-19, which has been declared by the World Health Organization to be a “pandemic,” has spread to many countries, including the United States, and is impacting domestic and worldwide economic activity. Since being declared a “pandemic”, COVID-19 interfered with our ability to meet with certain customers during 2020 and continued into the first half of 2021. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the supply chain for many types of products and materials, particularly those being manufactured in China and other countries where the outbreak has resulted in significant disruptions to ongoing business activities. Beginning in the second quarter of 2021 and continuing into the first quarter of 2022, we experienced a material disruption in our supply chain as it relates to the procurement of certain sole source and other multiple source components utilized in a material portion of several product lines. There are frequent developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak that may impact our customers, employees and business partners. As a result, it is not possible at this time to estimate the duration or the scope of the impact COVID-19 could have on the Company's business. The Company has experienced and is continuing to experience a significant reduction in sales as a result of its inability to procure parts necessary to manufacture products due to the supply chain issues related to the COVID-19 outbreak. It remains unclear when or whether our supply chain partners will resume their activities at a level where our sales will return to historical levels.

 

As disclosed in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company experienced a decline in sales, a reduction in working capital, a loss from operations and net cash used in operating activities, in conjunction with liquidity constraints. The above factors raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. As of March 31, 2022, certain of these factors still exist. Accordingly, there still exists substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity have been its existing cash balances, cash generated from operations, amounts available under the MidCap Facility (see Note 5 below) and amounts available under the Subordinated Loan Facility (see Note 6 below). As of March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $2,180 outstanding under the MidCap Facility (as defined in Note 5 below) and $243 of additional availability for borrowing under the MidCap Facility.

 

If anticipated operating results are not achieved and/or the Company is unable to obtain additional financing, it may be required to take additional measures to reduce costs in order to conserve its cash in amounts sufficient to sustain operations and meet its obligations, which measures could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s ability to achieve its intended business objectives and may be insufficient to enable the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

(f) Subsequent Events

 

The Company evaluates events that have occurred after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are issued. Based upon the evaluation, the Company did not identify any additional recognized or non-recognized subsequent events that would require adjustment to or disclosure in the condensed consolidated financial statements except as disclosed in Note 5.

Note 5 – Debt

 

Line of Credit

 

On October 25, 2019, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (All Assets) (the “Loan Agreement”) with MidCap Business Credit LLC (“MidCap”). The Loan Agreement provides the Company with a credit facility comprising a $5,000 revolving line of credit (the “MidCap Facility”). The MidCap Facility matures following the third anniversary of the Loan Agreement. Interest on the amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement is variable, based upon the three-month LIBOR rate plus a margin of 4.75% (5.71% at March 31, 2022), subject to re-set each month. All outstanding indebtedness under the Loan Agreement is secured by all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries.

 

The Loan Agreement contains customary covenants, including restrictions on the incurrence of additional indebtedness, the payment of cash dividends or similar distributions, the repayment of any subordinated indebtedness and the encumbrance, sale or other disposition of assets. In addition, the Company was initially required to maintain minimum availability of $500, with the minimum availability to be reduced to $400 upon the deliverance of an inventory appraisal satisfactory to MidCap, which occurred during the fourth quarter 2019.

 

On April 7, 2020, the Company entered into a certain Consent and Amendment to Loan Agreement and Loan Documents with Midcap (the “MidCap First Amendment”), which amended the MidCap Facility to, among other things, remove the existing $400 availability block, subject to the same being re-imposed at the rate of approximately $7 per month commencing June 1, 2020. The operative provisions relating to the removal of the availability block under the MidCap First Amendment became effective on April 8, 2020, following the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated by the Subordinated Loan Facility (See Note 6).

 

On January 8, 2021, the parties entered into a Second Amendment to Loan Agreement (the "Second Amendment"), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things, modify the Loan Agreement's definition of “Minimum EBITDA Covenant Trigger Event.” The Second Amendment amends the definition, retroactive to and as of December 1, 2020, and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On June 14, 2021, the parties entered into a Third Amendment to Loan Agreement (the "Third Amendment"), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things, modify the Loan Agreement's definition of “Minimum EBITDA Covenant Trigger Event.” The Third Amendment amends the definition, retroactive to and as of June 1, 2021, and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On July 30, 2021, the parties entered into a Fourth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the "Fourth Amendment"), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things, modify the Loan Agreement's definition of “Minimum EBITDA Covenant Trigger Event.” The Fourth Amendment amends the definition, retroactive to and as of July 1, 2021, and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On August 26, 2021, the parties entered into a Fifth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the "Fifth Amendment"), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things, (i) provide for an over-advance facility in the maximum amount of $400, (ii) defer the monthly incremental increase to the existing availability block and (iii) modify the Loan Agreement's definition of “Minimum EBITDA Covenant Trigger Event.” The Fifth Amendment amends the definition, retroactive to and as of August 1,

On December 16, 2021, the parties entered into a Sixth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “Sixth Amendment”), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things modify the Loan Agreement's definition of "Borrowing Base" (with such amendment retroactive to and effective as of December 15, 2021), and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On February 11, 2022, the parties entered into a Seventh Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “Seventh Amendment”), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things modify the Loan Agreement's definition of "Borrowing Base" and “Availability Block,” and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On March 3, 2022, the parties entered into an Eighth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “Eighth Amendment”), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things modify the Loan Agreement's definition of "Borrowing Base" and “Availability Block,” and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

On April 5, 2022, the Company entered into a Ninth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “Ninth Amendment”). Among other things, the amendment modified the Loan Agreement's definition of "Borrowing Base" so as to provide for an over-advance facility (the “2022 Over-Advance Facility”) in an aggregate amount of up to $1,000. MidCap's agreement to enter into the Ninth Amendment was conditioned, in part, on the entry into a participation agreement between MidCap and Robert J. Pallé, a Director, and an affiliate of Mr. Pallé (the “Pallé Parties”). The terms of the Ninth Amendment and the participation agreement contemplate that any advances made by Midcap pursuant to the 2022 Over-Advance Facility would be funded by the Pallé Parties under the participation agreement. Advances under the 2022 Over-Advance Facility are subject to the discretion of MidCap and the Pallé Parties. On April 5, 2022, pursuant to the 2022 Over-Advance Facility and the participation agreement, the Pallé Parties funded an initial advance of $200 that was provided to the Company. Since April 5, 2022, a total of $800 was made by Midcap to the Company, which was funded by the Pallé Parties. Further advances may be made to the Company upon its request, subject to the discretion of MidCap and the Pallé Parties, in minimum amounts of not less than $100 per tranche, unless a lesser amount is agreed to by the parties. The amount advanced in each tranche will bear an interest rate of 1% per month.

 

On May 5, 2022, the parties entered into a Tenth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the "Tenth Amendment"), which amendment, revised the Loan Agreement to, among other things, modify the Loan Agreement's definition of “Minimum EBITDA Covenant Trigger Event.” The Tenth Amendment amends the definition, retroactive to and as of January 1, 2022, and also includes certain additional non-substantive changes.

 

Long-Term Debt

 

On April 10, 2020, the Company received loan proceeds of approximately $1,769 (“PPP Loan”) under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). The PPP, established as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), provides for loans to qualifying businesses for amounts up to 2.5 times the average monthly payroll expenses of the qualifying business. The PPP Loan and accrued interest are forgivable after twenty-four weeks (the “Covered Period”) as long as the borrower uses the loan proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, and maintains its payroll levels. The amount of loan forgiveness will be reduced if the borrower terminates employees or reduces salaries during the Covered Period.

 

The PPP Loan was evidenced by a promissory note, dated as of April 5, 2020 (the “Note”), between the Company, as Borrower, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Lender (the “Lender”). The interest rate on the Note was 0.98% per annum, with interest accruing on the unpaid principal balance computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days. No payments of principal or interest were due during the ten-month period beginning on the date after the Covered Period.

 

On June 22, 2021, the Company applied to the SBA for full forgiveness of the PPP Loan. On June 30, 2021, the Company received notification that the forgiveness was granted. The Company recorded the $1,769 forgiveness as a gain on debt forgiveness during the year ended December 31, 2021.

Note 6 – Subordinated Convertible Debt with Related Parties

 

On April 8, 2020, the Company, as borrower, together with Livewire Ventures, LLC (wholly owned by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Edward R. Grauch), MidAtlantic IRA, LLC FBO Steven L. Shea IRA (an IRA account for the benefit of the Company’s Chairman of the Board, Steven Shea), Carol M. Pallé and Robert J. Pallé (Company Director and employed as Managing Director-Strategic Accounts) , Anthony J. Bruno (Company Director), and Stephen K. Necessary (Company Director) , as lenders (collectively, the “Initial Lenders”) and Robert J. Pallé, as Agent for the Lenders (in such capacity, the “Agent”) entered into a certain Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement (the “Subordinated Loan Agreement”), pursuant to which the lenders from time to time party thereto were permitted to provide up to $1,500 of loans to the Company (the “Subordinated Loan Facility”). Interest accrues on the outstanding amounts advanced under the Subordinated Loan Facility at the rate of 12% per annum, compounded and payable monthly, in-kind, by the automatic increase of the principal amount of the loan on each monthly interest payment date, by the amount of the accrued interest payable at that time (“PIK Interest”); provided, however, that at the option of the Company, it may pay interest in cash on any interest payment date, in lieu of PIK Interest.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Initial Lenders agreed to provide the Company with a Tranche A term loan facility of $800 of which $600 was advanced to the Company on April 8, 2020, $100 was advanced to the Company on April 17, 2020 and $100 was advanced to the Company on January 12, 2021. The Initial Lenders participating in the Tranche A term loan facility have the option of converting the principal balance of the loan held by each of them, in whole (unless otherwise agreed by the Company), into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price equal to the volume weighted average price of the common stock as reported by the NYSE American, during the five trading days preceding April 8, 2020 (the “Tranche A Conversion Price”) which was calculated at $0.593. The conversion right was subject to stockholder approval as required by the rules of the NYSE American, which was obtained on June 11, 2020.

 

On April 24, 2020, the Company, the Initial Lenders, Ronald V. Alterio (the Company’s Senior Vice President-Engineering, Chief Technology Officer) and certain additional unaffiliated investors (the “Additional Lenders,” and, together with the Initial Lenders, the “Lenders”) entered into the First Amendment to Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement and Joinder (the “Amendment”). The Amendment provides for the funding of $200 of additional loans under the Subordinated Loan Facility as a Tranche B term loan established under the Subordinated Loan Agreement, with such loans being provided by the Additional Lenders. The Amendment also sets the conversion price of $0.55 (the “Tranche B Conversion Price”) with respect to the right of the Additional Lenders to convert the accreted principal balance of the loans held by each of them into shares of the Company’s common stock. The terms and conditions of the conversion rights applicable to the Initial Lenders and the Additional Lenders are otherwise identical in all material respects, including the terms restricting conversion to an aggregate amount of shares of common stock that would not result in the Company’s non-compliance with NYSE American rules requiring stockholder approval of issuances or potential issuances of shares in excess of the percentage limits specified therein or in an amount that may be deemed to constitute a change of control under such rules. These restrictions were eliminated when the requisite stockholder approval was obtained on June 11, 2020.

 

On October 29, 2020, the additional unaffiliated investors as described above, submitted irrevocable notices of conversion under the Tranche B Term Loan. As a result, $175 of original principal and $11 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche B Term Loan were converted into 338 shares of Company common stock in full satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On January 28, 2021, the Company entered into the Third Amendment to Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement and Joinder (the “LSA Third Amendment”) with the Tranche A Parties, the Tranche B Parties (that had not previously converted the loans attributable to each of them into shares of common stock), the Agent and certain other investors (the “Tranche C Parties”). Pursuant to the LSA Third Amendment, the parties agreed to increase the aggregate loan limit from $1,500 to $1,600 and the Tranche C Parties agreed to provide the Company with a commitment for a $600 term loan facility, all of which was advanced to the Company on January 29, 2021 (the “Tranche C Loans”). As is the case with the loans provided by the Tranche A Parties and Tranche B Parties, interest on the Tranche C Loans accrues at 12% per annum and is payable monthly in-kind, by the automatic increase of the principal amount of the loans on each monthly interest payment date, by the amount of the accrued interest payable at that time. The Company, at its option, may pay any interest due on the Tranche C Loans in cash on any interest payment date in lieu of PIK Interest. The Tranche C Parties also have the option, following the stockholder approval described in the next sentence, of converting the accreted principal balance of the Tranche C Loans attributable to each of them into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $1.00. The conversion rights are subject to the terms and conditions applicable to the Tranche C Parties restricting conversion of the Tranche C Loans to an aggregate amount of shares of common stock that would not result in the Company’s non-compliance with NYSE American rules requiring stockholder approval of issuances or potential issuances of shares in excess of the percentage limits specified therein. These restrictions were eliminated when the requisite stockholder approval was obtained on March 4, 2021. As the stock price was $1.31 on March 4, 2021, the Company recorded a discount of $186 relating to the difference in stock price due to the beneficial conversion feature. The Company issued 42 warrants at an exercise price of $1.00 to a placement agent in connection with the Tranche C Loans. The warrants have a five-year term from January 28, 2021.

On March 15, 2021, one of the Tranche C Parties submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $100 of original principal and $1 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 101 shares of Company common stock in partial satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On April 6, 2021, the same Tranche C Party submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $50 of original principal and $1 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 51 shares of Company common stock in partial satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On May 24, 2021, the same Tranche C Party submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $50 of original principal and $2 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 52 shares of Company common stock in complete satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On January 21, 2022, one of the Tranche A Parties submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche A Loans. As a result, $50 of original principal and $12 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche A Loans were converted into 104 shares of Company common stock in complete satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

The obligations of the Company under the Subordinated Loan Agreement are guaranteed by Drake and are secured by substantially all of the Company’s and Drake’s assets. The Subordinated Loan Agreement has a maturity date three years from the date of closing, at which time the accreted principal balance of the loan (by virtue of the PIK Interest) plus any other accrued unpaid interest, would be due and payable in full. In connection with the Subordinated Loan Agreement, the Company, Drake, the Lenders and MidCap entered into a Subordination Agreement (the “Subordination Agreement”), pursuant to which the rights of the Lenders under the Subordinated Loan Agreement were subordinated to the rights of MidCap under the MidCap Agreement and related security documents. The Subordination Agreement precludes the Company from making cash payments of interest in lieu of PIK Interest, in the absence of the prior written consent of MidCap or unless the Company is able to meet certain predefined conditions precedent to the making of any such payments of interest (or principal), as more fully described in the Subordination Agreement. The Company accrued $42 and $37 of PIK Interest with respect to the Subordinated Loan Facility during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The Company recorded $16 and $39 of interest expense related to the amortization of the debt discount during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Promissory Note

 

In connection with the fulfillment of certain of the Company's purchase orders, the Company is financing expediting fees charged in connection with the purchase orders by delivering a promissory note (the “Note”) to the supplier of the goods, in the principal amount of approximately $630. The Note is unsecured and has an interest rate of 12% per annum. The Company was obligated to repay the principal balance of the note beginning in September 2021 and continuing thereafter for an additional five consecutive monthly installments on the 15th day of each successive calendar month, as follows: September 2021, $100, October 2021, $100, November 2021, $100, December 2021, $100, January 2022, $100 and February 2022, $140.

The final February 2022 payment was made in April 2022.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company accrued payroll tax credits of $1,804, through the Employee Retention Tax Credit program (“ERTC”). The amount was recorded as other income and included in prepaid and other current assets as of the applicable quarter end date. The Company received $577 of the first quarter of 2021 ERTC in April, $115 towards Q2 in July, $181 towards Q3 in August, $219 towards Q3 in October and $195 towards Q3 in November. The ERTC was initially established as part of the CARES Act of 2020 and subsequently amended by the Consolidated Appropriation Act (“CAA”) of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act (“ARPA”) of 2021. The CAA and ARPA amendments to the ERTC program provide eligible employers with a tax credit in an amount equal to 70% of qualified wages (including certain health care expenses) that eligible employers pay their employees after January 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. The maximum amount of qualified wages taken into account with respect to each employee for each calendar quarter is $10,000, so that the maximum credit that an eligible employer may claim for qualified wages paid to any employee is $7,000 per quarter. For purposes of the amended ERTC, an eligible employer is defined as having experienced a significant (20% or more) decline in gross receipts during each 2021 calendar quarter when compared with the same quarter in 2019. The credit is taken against the Company’s share of Social Security Tax when the Company’s payroll provider files the applicable quarterly tax filings on Form 941. At March 31, 2022, the Company is still owed $517 in ERTC funds which it expects to receive during the second quarter of 2022.

General

 

The Company was incorporated in November 1988, under the laws of Delaware as GPS Acquisition Corp. for the purpose of acquiring the business of Blonder-Tongue Laboratories, Inc., a New Jersey corporation, which was founded in 1950 by Ben H. Tongue and Isaac S. Blonder to design, manufacture and supply a line of electronics and systems equipment principally for the private cable industry. Following the acquisition, the Company changed its name to Blonder Tongue Laboratories, Inc. The Company completed the initial public offering of its shares of common stock in December 1995.

 

Today, the Company is a technology-development and manufacturing company that delivers a wide range of products and services to the telecommunications, cable entertainment and media industry. For 70 years, Blonder Tongue/Drake products have been deployed in a long list of locations, including lodging/hospitality, multi-dwelling units/apartments, broadcast studios/networks, universities/schools, healthcare/hospitals, fitness centers, government facilities/offices, prisons, airports, sports stadiums/arenas, entertainment venues/casinos, retail stores, and small-medium businesses. These applications are variously described as small and medium sized businesses in commercial, institutional or enterprise environments, and will be referred to herein collectively as “SMB”. The customers we serve include business entities installing private video and data networks in these environments, whether they are the largest cable television operators, telco or satellite providers, integrators, architects, engineers or the next generation of Internet Protocol Television (“IPTV”) streaming video providers. The technology requirements of these markets change rapidly, and the Company’s research and development team is continually delivering high performance-lower cost solutions to meet customers’ needs.

 

The Company’s strategy is focused on providing a wide range of products to meet the needs of the SMB environments described above, including lodging/hospitality, multi-dwelling units/apartments, broadcast studios/networks, universities/schools, healthcare/hospitals, fitness centers, government facilities/offices, prisons, airports, sports stadiums/arenas, entertainment venues/casinos, retail stores, and small-medium businesses, and to provide offerings that are optimized for an operator’s existing infrastructure, as well as the operator’s future strategy. A key component of this growth strategy is to provide products that deliver the latest technologies (such as IPTV and digital 4K, UHD, HD and SD video content) and have a high performance-to-cost ratio.

In 2019, the Company initiated a consumer premise equipment (“CPE”) sales initiative. The products sold in 2019 comprise primarily Android-based IPTV set top boxes to the Tier 2 and Tier 3 cable and telecommunications service providers. Although this strategic initiative was designed to secure an in-home position with the Company’s product offerings, and direct relationships with a wide range of service providers, and increase sales of the Company’s Telecom and SMB products by the BT Premier Distributors to those same service providers, it was decided in 2021, to de-emphasize this strategy due to the low gross margin of this initiative and global semiconductor supply chain limitations. The CPE Product initiative achieved sales to over 75 different telco, municipal fiber and cable operators and accounted for approximately 7% and 25% of the Company’s 2021 and 2020 revenues, respectively, although its contribution to net income has not had a material impact on the Company’s performance.

 

Like many businesses throughout the United States and the world, the Company has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Because there are daily, weekly and monthly developments regarding the outbreak, we are continually assessing the current and anticipated future effects on our business, including how these developments are impacting or may impact our customers, employees and business partners. In our core SMB business, we have experienced a noticeable decline in sales. From March 2020 through Q3 of 2021 many of our customers significantly reduced their business operations. In our CPE business we have experienced a more substantial reduction in sales, again as a result of our customers’ significant decrease in their business activities coupled with expected supply chain constraints. During and since Q3 2021, the Company has seen our customers, in general, begin to recover their business operations at the same time as the Company began to see global disruptions in semiconductor supply chain, which is a major raw material component of the products the Company designs, manufactures and sells. With uncertainties surrounding the extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak will affect the economy generally, and our customers and business partners in particular, it is impossible for us to predict when conditions will improve to the point that we can reasonably forecast when our sales and product shipments might return to historical levels. Since 2019, we have taken steps to reduce and are currently taking additional steps to significantly reduce our expenses, including adjustments in our staffing (in the form of furloughs) and reductions in manufacturing activities, which we believe will improve our ability to continue our operations at current levels and meet our obligations to our customers.

 

The Company’s manufacturing is allocated primarily between its facility in Old Bridge, New Jersey (“Old Bridge Facility”) and key contract manufacturing located in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) as well as South Korea, Taiwan and Ohio. The Company currently manufactures most of its digital products, including the NXG product line and latest encoder, transcoder and EdgeQAM collections at the Old Bridge Facility. Since 2007 the Company has transitioned and continues to manufacture certain high-volume, labor intensive products, including many of the Company’s analog and other products, in the PRC, pursuant to manufacturing agreements that govern the production of products that may from time to time be the subject of purchase orders submitted by (and in the discretion of) the Company. Although the Company does not currently anticipate the transfer of any additional products to the PRC or other countries for manufacture, the Company may do so if business and market conditions make it advantageous to do so. Manufacturing products both at the Company’s Old Bridge Facility as well as in the PRC, South Korea, Taiwan and Ohio enables the Company to realize cost reductions while maintaining a competitive position and time-to-market advantage.

 

Results of Operations

 

First three months of 2022 Compared with first three months of 2021

 

Net Sales. Net sales increased $90,000, or 2.8%, to $3,341,000 in the first three months of 2022 from $3,251,000 in the first three months of 2021. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in sales of DOCSIS data products, encoder/transcoder products, digital modulation products and NXG IP video signal processing products, offset by a decrease in sales of CPE products, coax distribution products and analog modulation products. Sales of DOCSIS data products were $454,000 and $24,000, encoder/transcoder products were $1,518,000 and $1,167,000, digital modulation products were $377,000 and $121,000, NXG products were $501,000 and $421,000, CPE products were $27,000 and $695,000, coax distribution products were $129,000 and $353,000 and analog modulation products were $99,000 and $244,000 in the first three months of 2022 and 2021, respectively. The Company experienced a reduction in CPE products due to the continued deemphasis of this product line, which the Company expects to continue during the remainder of 2022. The Company experienced an increase in DOCSIS data products due to the pent up demand caused by the pandemic as these products are used primarily in the hospitality and assisted-living environments. The Company expects sales of these products may return to more historical levels during 2022. The Company experienced a reduction in analog modulation products due to the continued market shifting away from analog modulation solutions. The Company experienced a reduction in coax distribution products due to the reduced demand for legacy products. The Company expects the sales of the analog modulation and coax distribution products to continue to decline during 2022. The Company experienced an increase in encoder/transcoder products and NXG IP video signal processing products as these product lines represent newer products and newer technologies with higher demand from customers. The Company expects sales of these product lines to remain at these levels or increase during 2022. Although the Company does not expect overall sales to return to pre pandemic levels during 2022, the Company does expect overall sales to be higher during 2022, due to approximately $10,194,000 of sales backlog at March 31, 2022.

 

15

 

 

Cost of Goods Sold. Cost of goods sold increased to $2,402,000 for the first three months of 2022 from $1,866,000 for the first three months of 2021 and increased as a percentage of sales to 71.9% from 57.4%. The increase is primarily attributable to lower margins relating to unfavorable product mix, as well as increased overhead costs due to manufacturing inefficiencies caused by previously mentioned supply chain constraints. The Company expects cost of goods sold to decrease during the remaining quarters of 2022 due to product mix since both encoder/transcoder and NXG sales have substantially lower costs of sales. The Company also expects cost of goods sold to decrease during the remainder of 2022 as overhead costs stabilize.

 

Selling Expenses. Selling expenses decreased to $506,000 for the first three months of 2022 from $531,000 in the first three months of 2021 and decreased as percentage of sales to 15.2% for the first three months of 2022 from 16.3% for the first three months of 2021. The $25,000 decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in salaries and fringe benefits due to a decrease in head count of $49,000, offset by an increase in freight expense of $18,000.

 

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased to $912,000 for the first three months of 2022 from $1,079,000 for the first three months of 2021 and decreased as a percentage of sales to 27.3% for the first three months of 2022 from 33.2% for the first three months of 2021. The $167,000 decrease was primarily the result of a decrease in salaries and fringe benefits of $122,000 and a reduction in directors’ fees of $47,000.

 

Research and Development Expenses. Research and development expenses decreased to $541,000 in the first three months of 2022 from $638,000 in the first three months of 2021 and decreased as a percentage of sales to 16.2% for the first three months of 2022 from 19.6% for the first three months of 2021. This $97,000 decrease is primarily the result of a decrease in salaries and fringe benefits of $40,000 due to decreased head count and a reduction in department supplies (engineering prototypes) of $47,000.

 

Operating Loss. Operating loss of $(1,020,000) for the first three months of 2022 represents an increase from the operating loss of $(863,000) for the first three months of 2021. Operating loss as a percentage of sales was (30.5) % in the first three months of 2022 compared to (26.6) % in the first three months of 2021.

 

Other income. Other income decreased to zero in the first three months of 2022 from $577,000 in the first three months of 2021. The decrease is the result of the receipt of the payroll tax credit through the Employee Retention Tax Credit for the first quarter of 2021. This program ended in the third quarter of 2021.

 

Interest Expense. Interest expense increased to $133,000 in the first three months of 2022 from $128,000 in the first three months of 2021. The increase is primarily the result of higher average borrowing under the MidCap facility.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company’s working capital was $740,000 and $1,618,000, respectively. The decrease in working capital was primarily due to an increase in accounts payable.

 

The Company’s net cash provided by operating activities for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 was $78,000 primarily due to an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1,091,000, offset by the net loss of $1,154,000. The Company’s net cash provided by operating activities for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 was $234,000 primarily due to a decrease in accounts receivable of $667,000 and an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $416,000, offset by an increase in prepaid and other current assets of $954,000.

 

Cash used in investing activities for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 was $4,000 due to capital expenditures of $2,000 and the acquisition of licenses of $2,000. Cash used in investing activities for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 was $36,000, all of which was attributable to acquisition of licenses.

 

Cash used in financing activities was $238,000 for the first three months of 2022, which was comprised of net repayments of the line of credit of $220,000 and repayments of debt of $18,000. Cash used in financing activities was $211,000 for the first three months of 2021, which was comprised of net repayments of the line of credit of $907,000 and repayments of debt of $8,000 offset by borrowings under the subordinated convertible debt facility of $700,000 and the proceeds of the exercise of stock options of $4,000.

For a full description of the Company’s senior secured indebtedness under the MidCap Facility and its effect upon the Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations, see Note 5 – Debt of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity have been its existing cash balances, cash generated from operations, amounts available under the MidCap Facility and amounts available under the Subordinated Loan Facility. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $2,180,000 outstanding under the MidCap Facility and $243,000 of additional availability for borrowing under the MidCap Facility.

 

As previously disclosed, on February 1, 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Old Bridge Facility to Jake Brown Road, LLC (the “Buyer”) and, in connection with the completion of the sale, the Company and the Buyer (as landlord) entered into a lease (the “Lease”), pursuant to which the Company continues to occupy, and conduct its manufacturing, engineering, sales and administrative functions, in the Old Bridge Facility.  Also as previously disclosed, certain disagreements have arisen between the Company and the landlord with respect to the parties' interpretation of elements of the Lease, including with respect to amounts being held in escrow by the landlord, which the Company believes should either be refunded to the Company or credited against future lease payments, and the landlord's claim that the Company is obligated to pay management fees to the landlord under the Lease.  Without prejudice to the Company's positions regarding these matters, and without creating any inference that the Company agrees with any of the landlord's claims or waiving any rights available to the Company under the Lease or otherwise, on May 5, 2021, the Company made payment to the landlord of $139,550.62, representing all amounts that the landlord claimed were due.  The parties continue to discuss these matters in an attempt to negotiate a resolution of these disagreements.  The Company, however, cannot assure you that these matters will be resolved in a manner that is favorable to the Company or that litigation might not result if a negotiated resolution is not forthcoming.

 

On December 31, 2019, the Company entered into a two-year sublease to a third party for 32,500 square feet of the Old Bridge Facility (the “Sublease Space”) which commenced on March 1, 2020, the rental proceeds from which inure to the benefit of the Company. The sublease also provides for a one-year renewal option, which was exercised in January 2022. The sublease provides rental income approximately $284,000 in the first year, approximately $293,000 in the second year and approximately $301,000 in the third year of the sublease.

 

In connection with the fulfillment of certain of the Company's purchase orders, the Company was financing expediting fees charged in connection with the purchase orders by delivering a promissory note (the “Note”) to the supplier of the goods, in the principal amount of approximately $630,000. The Note was unsecured and has an interest rate of 12% per annum. The Company was obligated to repay the principal balance of the note beginning in September 2021 and continuing thereafter for an additional five consecutive monthly installments on the 15th day of each successive calendar month, as follows: September 2021, $100,000, October 2021, $100,000, November 2021, $100,000, December 2021, $100,000, January 2022, $100,000 and February 2022, $140,000. Accrued interest was paid concurrently with each principal installment. The final February 2022 payment was made in April 2022.

 

As disclosed in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company experienced a decline in sales, a reduction in working capital, a loss from operations and net cash used in operating activities, in conjunction with liquidity constraints. These factors raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. As of March 31, 2022, the above factors still exist. Accordingly, there still exists substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Beginning in the middle of 2019, the Company experienced a significant decline in its net sales of core or legacy products, which while not recovering to historical norms, stabilized during the early part of the first quarter of 2020. Beginning in February 2020, however, as the prospects of an ever-worsening outbreak of COVID-19 took hold, the Company began to experience adverse impacts to revenues across all of its product lines. Sales of the Company’s products did not return to historical norms during 2021. The Company still does not anticipate that sales will recover to historical norms during 2022, due primarily to supply chain shortages related to COVID-19 impacting the Company’s ability to source raw materials used in the manufacturing process. In light of these developments and as detailed below, the Company has taken significant steps during the past year, implemented in several phases, in order to manage operations through what has been a period of diminished sales levels.

As part of its efforts to improve liquidity and provide operating capital, on April 7, 2020, the Company entered into a certain Consent and Amendment to Loan Agreement and Loan Documents with Midcap (the “MidCap First Amendment”), which amended the MidCap Facility to, among other things, remove the existing $400,000 availability block, subject to the same being re-imposed at the rate of approximately $7,000 per month commencing June 1, 2020. The operative provisions relating to the removal of the availability block under the MidCap First Amendment became effective on April 8, 2020, following the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated by the Subordinated Loan Facility (defined below).

 

On April 5, 2022, the Company entered into a Ninth Amendment to Loan Agreement (the “Ninth Amendment”). Among other things, the amendment modified the Loan Agreement's definition of "Borrowing Base" so as to provide for an over-advance facility (the “2022 Over-Advance Facility”) in an aggregate amount of up to $1,000,000. MidCap's agreement to enter into the Ninth Amendment was conditioned, in part, on the entry into a participation agreement between MidCap and Robert J. Pallé, a Director, and an affiliate of Mr. Pallé (the “Pallé Parties”). The terms of the Ninth Amendment and the participation agreement contemplate that any advances made by Midcap pursuant to the 2022 Over-Advance Facility would be funded by the Pallé Parties under the participation agreement. Advances under the 2022 Over-Advance Facility are subject to the discretion of MidCap and the Pallé Parties. On April 5, 2022, pursuant to the 2022 Over-Advance Facility and the participation agreement, the Pallé Parties funded an initial advance of $200,000 that was provided to the Company. Since April 5, 2022, a total of $800,000 was made by Midcap to the Company, which was funded by the Pallé Parties. Further advances may be made to the Company upon its request, subject to the discretion of MidCap and the Pallé Parties, in minimum amounts of not less than $100,000 per tranche, unless a lesser amount is agreed to by the parties. The amount advanced in each tranche will bear an interest rate of 1% per month.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Company, as borrower, together with Livewire Ventures, LLC (wholly owned by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Edward R. Grauch), MidAtlantic IRA, LLC FBO Steven L. Shea IRA (an IRA account for the benefit of the Company’s Chairman of the Board, Steven Shea), Carol M. Pallé and Robert J. Pallé, Anthony J. Bruno, and Stephen K. Necessary, as lenders (collectively, the “Initial Lenders”) and Robert J. Pallé, as Agent for the Lenders (in such capacity, the “Agent”) entered into a certain Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement (the “Subordinated Loan Agreement”), pursuant to which the lenders from time to time party thereto may provide up to $1,500,000 of loans to the Company (the “Subordinated Loan Facility”). Interest accrues on the outstanding amounts advanced under the Subordinated Loan Facility at the rate of 12% per annum, compounded and payable monthly, in-kind, by the automatic increase of the principal amount of the loan on each monthly interest payment date, by the amount of the accrued interest payable at that time (“PIK Interest”); provided, however, that at the option of the Company, it may pay interest in cash on any interest payment date, in lieu of PIK Interest.

 

On April 8, 2020, the Initial Lenders agreed to provide the Company with a Tranche A term loan facility of $800,000, of which $600,000 was advanced to the Company on April 8, 2020, $100,000 was advanced to the Company on April 17, 2020 and $100,000 was advanced to the Company on January 12, 2021. The Initial Lenders participating in the Tranche A term loan facility have the option of converting the principal balance of the loan held by each of them, in whole (unless otherwise agreed by the Company), into shares of the Company’s common stock, at a conversion price equal to the volume weighted average price of the common stock as reported by the NYSE American, during the five trading days preceding April 8, 2020 (the “Tranche A Conversion Price”) which was calculated at $0.593. The conversion right was subject to stockholder approval as required by the rules of the NYSE American, and was obtained on June 11, 2020 at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders.

 

On April 24, 2020, the Company, the Initial Lenders and Ronald V. Alterio (the Company’s Senior Vice President-Engineering, Chief Technology Officer) and certain additional unaffiliated investors (the “Additional Lenders,” and, together with the Initial Lenders, the “Lenders”) entered into the First Amendment to Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement and Joinder (the “Amendment”). The Amendment provides for the funding of $200,000 of additional loans as a Tranche B term loan under the Subordinated Loan Facility established under the Subordinated Loan Agreement, with such loans being provided by the Additional Lenders. The Amendment also sets the conversion price of $0.55 (the “Tranche B Conversion Price”) with respect to the right of the Additional Lenders to convert the accreted principal balance of the loans held by each of them into shares of the Company’s common stock. The terms and conditions of the conversion rights applicable to the Initial Lenders and the Additional Lenders are otherwise identical in all material respects, including the terms restricting conversion to an aggregate amount of shares of common stock that would not result in the Company’s non-compliance with NYSE American rules requiring stockholder approval of issuances or potential issuances of shares in excess of the percentage limits specified therein or in an amount that may be deemed to constitute a change of control under such rules. These restrictions terminated as the requisite stockholder approval was obtained on June 11, 2020 at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders.

 

On April 10, 2020, the Company received loan proceeds of approximately $1,769,000 (“PPP Loan”) under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). The PPP, established as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), provided for loans to qualifying businesses for amounts up to 2.5 times the average monthly payroll expenses of the qualifying business. The PPP Loan and accrued interest are forgivable after twenty-four weeks (the “Covered Period”) as long as the borrower uses the loan proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, and maintains its payroll levels. The amount of loan forgiveness would be reduced if the borrower terminated employees or reduced salaries during the eight-week period.

 

18

 

 

The PPP Loan was evidenced by a promissory note, dated as of April 5, 2020 (the “Note”), between the Company, as Borrower, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Lender (the “Lender”). The interest rate on the Note was 0.98% per annum, with interest accruing on the unpaid principal balance computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days. No payments of principal or interest were due during the ten-month period beginning after the Covered Period (the “Deferral Period”).

 

On June 22, 2021, the Company applied to the SBA for full forgiveness of the PPP Loan. On June 30, 2021, the Company received notification that the forgiveness was granted. The Company recorded the $1,769,000 forgiveness as a gain on debt forgiveness during the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

On October 29, 2020, the unaffiliated Additional Investors as described in Note 6, submitted irrevocable notices of conversion under the Tranche B Term Loan. As a result, approximately $175,000 of original principal and $11,000 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche B Term Loan were converted into 338,272 shares of Company common stock in full satisfaction of the underlying indebtedness.

 

On December 14, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with certain accredited investors (the "Purchasers") for the sale and issuance by the Company to the Purchasers of (i) an aggregate of 1,429,000 shares (the "Shares") of the Company's common stock and (ii) warrants (the "Purchaser Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of up to 714,000 shares of common stock (the "Purchaser Warrant Shares"), for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $1,000, before deducting placement agent fees and offering expenses payable by the Company. The Company also agreed to issue to the placement agents and certain persons affiliated with the placement agents, as additional compensation, (a) fully-vested warrants (the "Placement Agent Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of up to 100,000 shares (the "Placement Agent Warrant Shares") of common stock and (b) contingent warrants (the "Placement Agent Contingent Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of up to an additional 50,000 shares (the "Placement Agent Contingent Warrant Shares") of common stock. The transaction closed on December 15, 2020.

 

The Purchase Agreement also includes terms that give the Purchasers certain price protections, providing for adjustments of the number of shares of common stock held by them in the event of certain future dilutive securities issuances by the Company for a period not to exceed 18 months following the closing of the private placement, or such earlier date on which all of the Purchaser Warrants have been exercised. In addition, the Purchase Agreement provides the Purchasers with a right to participate in certain future Company financings, up to 30% of the amount of such financings, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the private placement. The Purchase Agreement also required the Company to register the resale of the Shares and the Purchaser Warrant Shares pursuant to the terms of a Registration Rights Agreement between the Company and the Purchasers, dated as of December 14, 2020, as further described below. The Company filed a registration statement with the SEC on January 14, 2021 to register the resale of the Shares and the Purchaser Warrant Shares, which registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on January 21, 2021.

 

The Purchaser Warrants have an exercise price of $1.25 per share, are exercisable beginning on December 15, 2020, and have a term of three years. The exercise price and the number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of each Purchaser Warrant is subject to appropriate adjustments in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting the common stock. The fair value of the Purchaser Warrants is $643,000.

 

In certain circumstances, upon the occurrence of a fundamental transaction, a holder of Purchaser Warrants is entitled to receive, upon any subsequent exercise of the Purchaser Warrant, for each Purchaser Warrant Share that would have been issuable upon such exercise of the Purchaser Warrant immediately prior to the fundamental transaction, at the option of the holder, the number of shares of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation or of the Company, if it is the surviving corporation, and any additional consideration receivable as a result of the fundamental transaction by a holder of the number of shares of common stock of the Company for which the Purchaser Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to the fundamental transaction. If holders of the Company's common stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a fundamental transaction, then the Holder shall be given the choice as to the additional consideration it receives upon any exercise of the Purchaser Warrant following the fundamental transaction.

The Placement Agent Warrants have an exercise price of $0.70 per share, a term of five years from December 14, 2020, and became exercisable upon the Company obtaining the stockholder approval described above. The exercise price and the number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of each Placement Agent Warrant is subject to appropriate adjustments in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting the common stock. The Placement Agent Warrants also provide the holders with certain “piggyback” registration rights, permitting the holders to request that the Company include the Placement Agent Warrant Shares for sale in certain registration statements filed by the Company. The fair value of the Placement Agent Warrants is $121,000. During June and July 2021, the Company received approximately $61,000 as 87,500 of Placement Agent Warrants were exercised.

 

The Placement Agent Contingent Warrants have an exercise price of $1.25 per share, a term of five years from December 14, 2020, and become exercisable if, and to the extent, holders of the Purchaser Warrants exercise such Purchaser Warrants. In no event, however, will the Placement Agent Contingent Warrants become exercisable unless and until Stockholder Approval has been obtained. The exercise price and the number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of each Placement Agent Contingent Warrant is subject to appropriate adjustments in the event of certain stock dividends and distributions, stock splits, stock combinations, reclassifications or similar events affecting the common stock. The Placement Agent Contingent Warrants also provide the holders with certain “piggyback” registration rights, permitting the holders to request that the Company include the Placement Agent Contingent Warrant Shares for sale in certain registration statements filed by the Company. The fair value of the Placement Agent Contingent Warrants is $56,000.

 

On January 28, 2021, the Company entered into the Third Amendment to Senior Subordinated Convertible Loan and Security Agreement and Joinder (the “LSA Third Amendment”) with the Tranche A Parties, the Tranche B Parties (that had not previously converted the loans attributable to each of them into shares of common stock), the Agent and certain other investors (the “Tranche C Parties”). Pursuant to the LSA Third Amendment, the parties agreed to increase the aggregate loan limit under the Subordinated Loan Agreement from $1,500,000 to $1,600,000 and the Tranche C Parties agreed to provide the Company with a commitment for a $600,000 term loan facility, all of which was advanced to the Company on January 29, 2021 (the “Tranche C Loans”). As is the case with the loans provided by the Tranche A Parties and Tranche B Parties, interest on the Tranche C Loans accrues at 12% per annum and is payable monthly in-kind, by the automatic increase of the principal amount of the loans on each monthly interest payment date, by the amount of the accrued interest payable at that time. The Company, at its option, may pay any interest due on the Tranche C Loans in cash on any interest payment date in lieu of PIK Interest. The Tranche C Parties also have the option, following Stockholder Approval (defined below) of converting the accreted principal balance of the Tranche C Loans attributable to each of them into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $1.00.

 

Both the Purchase Agreement and the Subordinated Loan Agreement (as amended by the LSA Third Amendment) obligated the Company to call a special meeting of its stockholders to seek stockholder approval of the issuance of shares of its common stock issuable in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement and the LSA Third Amendment, in excess of 19.99% of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock, in accordance with the requirements of Section 713(a) of the NYSE American Company Guide. Stockholder approval of the foregoing was obtained on March 4, 2021. As the stock price was $1.31 on March 4, 2021, the Company recorded a discount of $186,000 relating to the difference in stock price due to the beneficial conversion feature.

 

The obligations of the Company under the Subordinated Loan Agreement are guaranteed by Drake and are secured by substantially all of the Company’s and Drake’s assets. The Subordinated Loan Agreement has a maturity date three years from the date of closing, at which time the accreted principal balance of the loan (by virtue of the PIK Interest) plus any other accrued unpaid interest, would be due and payable in full. In connection with the Subordinated Loan Agreement, the Company, Drake, the Lenders and MidCap entered into a Subordination Agreement (the “Subordination Agreement”), pursuant to which the rights of the Lenders under the Subordinated Loan Agreement were subordinated to the rights of MidCap under the MidCap Agreement and related security documents. The Subordination Agreement precludes the Company from making cash payments of interest in lieu of PIK Interest, in the absence of the prior written consent of MidCap or unless the Company is able to meet certain predefined conditions precedent to the making of any such payments of interest (or principal), as more fully described in the Subordination Agreement.

 

On March 15, 2021, one of the Tranche C Parties submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $100,000 of original principal and $1,000 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 100,987 shares of Company common stock in partial satisfaction of the indebtedness to that Tranche C Party.

On April 6, 2021, the same Tranche C Party submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $50,000 of original principal and $1,000 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 51,260 shares of Company common stock in partial satisfaction of the indebtedness to that Tranche C Party.

 

On May 24, 2021, the same Tranche C Party submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche C Loans. As a result, $50,000 of original principal and $2,000 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche C Loans were converted into 52,277 shares of Company common stock in complete satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On January 21, 2022, one of the Tranche A Parties submitted an irrevocable notice of conversion under the Tranche A Loans. As a result, $50,000 of original principal and $12,000 of PIK interest outstanding under the Tranche A Loans were converted into 104,399 shares of Company common stock in complete satisfaction of their indebtedness.

 

On August 16, 2021, the Company entered into a Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with Roth Capital Partners, LLC (the “Agent”). In accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company may offer and sell from time to time through the Agent shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $400,000. From August 16, 2021 through September 30, 2021, the Company sold an aggregate of 38,388 shares under the Sales Agreement at prices ranging from $1.1053 to $1.1390 per share, for aggregate proceeds, net of sales commissions, of approximately $41,000.

 

On August 23, 2021, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an institutional investor providing for the sale by the Company to the investor of 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a purchase price of $1.08 per share, resulting in aggregate proceeds to the Company of $216,000. The shares were offered and sold pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3. The Company's sale of the Shares pursuant to the Purchase Agreement will have the effect of reducing the amount of shares that may be sold pursuant to the Sales Agreement from $400,000 to $184,000. Taking into account sales of common stock pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement and sales of common stock pursuant to the Sales Agreement to date, the amount available to be sold under the Sales Agreement is currently $143,000.

 

For the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company accrued payroll tax credits of $1,804,000, through the Employee Retention Tax Credit program (“ERTC”). The amount was recorded as other income and included in prepaid and other current assets as of the applicable quarter end date. The Company received $577,000 of the first quarter of 2021 ERTC in April, $115,000 towards Q2 in July, $181,000 towards Q3 in August, $219,000 towards Q3 in October and $195,000 towards Q3 in November. The ERTC was initially established as part of the CARES Act of 2020 and subsequently amended by the Consolidated Appropriation Act (“CAA”) of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act (“ARPA”) of 2021. The CAA and ARPA amendments to the ERTC program provide eligible employers with a tax credit in an amount equal to 70% of qualified wages (including certain health care expenses) that eligible employers pay their employees after January 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. The maximum amount of qualified wages taken into account with respect to each employee for each calendar quarter is $10,000, so that the maximum credit that an eligible employer may claim for qualified wages paid to any employee is $7,000 per quarter. For purposes of the amended ERTC, an eligible employer is defined as having experienced a significant (20% or more) decline in gross receipts during each 2021 calendar quarter when compared with the same quarter in 2019. The credit is taken against the Company’s share of Social Security Tax when the Company’s payroll provider files the applicable quarterly tax filings on Form 941. At March 31, 2022, the Company is still owed $517,000 in ERTC funds which it expects to receive during the second quarter of 2022.

 

In other efforts to alleviate the liquidity pressures and reposition the Company to generate positive cash flow at a lower level of net sales, since August 2019, the Company has implemented a multi-phase cost-reduction program which reduced cash expenses during 2019 by approximately $200,000 per month and which provided annualized cash savings of approximately $2,400,000 during 2020, with another reduction in 2021 of approximately $110,000 per month and which provided annualized savings of approximately $1,314,000 compared to the Company’s costs as they existed prior to the commencement of the cost reduction program. Although the Company believes it has made and will continue to make progress under these programs and the funding provided under the Subordinated Loan Agreement and available as a result of the release of the availability block under the MidCap Facility, the Company operates in a rapidly evolving and often unpredictable business environment that may change the timing or amount of expected future cash receipts and expenditures. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that our planned improvements will be successful.

In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the supply chain for many types of products and materials, particularly those being manufactured in China and other countries where the outbreak has resulted in significant disruptions to ongoing business activities. Beginning in the second quarter of 2021 and continuing into the first quarter of 2022, we experienced a material disruption in our supply chain as it relates to the procurement of certain sole source and other multiple source components utilized in a material portion of several product lines. We believe this disruption may continue beyond 2022. If these or any similar types of supply disruptions continue, it is possible that we will be unable to complete sales of any affected products to our customers on requested schedules.

 

The Company has reacted to these unprecedented circumstances, as many enterprises have had to do over the course of the pandemic, with a range of actions designed to compensate for anticipated temporary revenue shortfalls, manage the Company’s working capital and minimize the overall financial impact of this disruption, including implementation of exceptional short-term operating expense reductions, such as temporary manufacturing shut-downs and employee furloughs.

 

The Company’s primary long-term obligations are for payment of interest on the MidCap Facility, which expires on October 25, 2022. The Company expects to use cash generated from operations to meet its long-term debt obligations. The Company also expects to make financed and unfinanced long-term capital expenditures from time to time in the ordinary course of business, which capital expenditures were $2,000 and $31,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 and the year ended December 31, 2021, respectively. The Company expects to use cash generated from operations, amounts available under the MidCap Facility, amounts available under the Subordinated Loan Facility, and purchase-money financing to meet any anticipated long-term capital expenditures.

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Preparing financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The following paragraphs include a discussion of some critical areas where estimates are required. You should also review Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the Notes to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of significant accounting policies.

 

Inventory and Obsolescence

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined by the first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) method, or net realizable value.

 

The Company periodically analyzes anticipated product sales based on historical results, current backlog and marketing plans. Based on these analyses, the Company anticipates that certain products will not be sold during the next twelve months. Inventories that are not anticipated to be sold in the next twelve months, have been reserved..

 

The Company continually analyzes its slow-moving and excess inventories. Based on historical and projected sales volumes and anticipated selling prices, the Company establishes reserves. Inventory that is in excess of current and projected use is reduced by an allowance to a level that approximates its estimate of future demand. Products that are determined to be obsolete are written down to net realizable value.

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Accounts receivable are customer obligations due under normal trade terms. The Company sells its products primarily to distributors and private cable operators. The Company performs continuing credit evaluations of its customers’ financial condition and although the Company generally does not require collateral, letters of credit may be required from its customers in certain circumstances.

 

22

 

 

Senior management reviews accounts receivable on a monthly basis to determine if any receivables will potentially be uncollectible. The Company includes any accounts receivable balances that are determined to be uncollectible, along with a general reserve based on historical experience, in its overall allowance for doubtful accounts.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of the long-lived assets, including intangible assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances occur, the Company assesses recoverability by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through the undiscounted expected future cash flows. If the future undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying amount of these assets, an impairment loss is recognized based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. The Company did not recognize any intangible asset impairment charges in during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

Valuation of Deferred Tax Assets

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under the provisions of the FASB ASC Topic 740 “Income Taxes”. Deferred income taxes are provided for temporary differences in the recognition of certain income and expenses for financial and tax reporting purposes. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s reports filed or submitted pursuant to Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at March 31, 2022.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2022, there have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
