Financial report summary

  • We experienced a net loss in 2020 and 2021, anticipate increasing expenses in the future, and we may not be able to achieve, maintain or increase profitability in the future.
  • Our operating results and financial condition may fluctuate.
  • We purchase component parts and consumable products from third-party and sole source suppliers, and any interference with this supply chain may impact our ability to manufacture and sell our products.
  • Our revenue and profitability depend on our ability to continue to develop or license, on a timely basis, new products and technologies which are free from hardware or software anomalies and cannot be fraudulently manipulated, and customer acceptance of such products.
  • We rely on an unrelated third-party to develop, maintain and host certain portions of our food service technology software, and any disruption in the relationship with that third-party, or any defects in the software provided by that third-party, could have a material adverse effect on our reputation, business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • We compete in highly competitive markets, which are likely to become more competitive. Competitors may be able to respond more quickly to new or emerging technology and changes in customer requirements.
  • Our success will depend on our ability to sustain and manage growth.
  • We are dependent on sales to one large customer; the loss of this customer or reduction in orders from this customer could materially affect our sales.
  • General economic conditions could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
  • If market conditions deteriorate or future results of operations are less than expected, a valuation allowance may be required for all or a portion of our deferred tax assets.
  • We rely on distributors and resellers to sell our products and services.
  • We are dependent upon two manufacturers located in Thailand and China for the manufacturing and assembly of our printers and terminals, and their operations were disrupted by the outbreak of COVID-19. The disruption adversely affected the Company’s business, financial conditions and results of operations, and any further or future disruption in their businesses or operations, such as those caused by political, social or economic instability, war, trade restrictions or tariffs, severe weather, additional public health crises and other events out of our control, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Overestimates or underestimates in our manufacturing forecasts could cause us to hold excess inventory or result in delays in the manufacturing and delivery of our products, which could cause us to lose orders or customers.
  • In addition to maintaining offices in the UK and Macau, we sell and ship a significant portion of our products internationally and rely on third-parties that make up our global salesforce. The international nature of our operations may expose us to certain risks associated with doing business outside of the U.S., including risks posed by tariffs and changes in trade relations.
  • Catastrophic events or a downturn in economic conditions may disrupt our business.
  • We depend on key personnel, the loss of which could materially impact our business.
  • The inability to protect our intellectual property rights could harm our reputation, damage our business or interfere with our competitive position, and infringement on the intellectual property rights of others, or claims thereof, could put us at a competitive disadvantage, and any related litigation could be time consuming and costly.
  • We currently rely on third-party service providers to host our food service technology software and deliver certain services, and any interruptions or delays in services from these third-parties could impair the delivery of our products and services, and our business, results of operations, and financial condition could be materially adversely affected.
  • Our food service technology business depends substantially on our customers renewing their subscriptions with the Company. Any decline in our customer renewals would harm our food service technology business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • If we fail to offer high quality support, our business and reputation could suffer.
  • Cyber-security and privacy breaches, cyber-attacks, or other disruptions could expose us to liability, affect our business, and damage our reputation.
  • We cannot provide any assurance that current laws, or any laws enacted in the future, will not have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • The agreement governing our credit facility contains restrictions and limitations that could significantly affect our ability to operate our business, as well as significantly affect our liquidity.
  • Our stock price may fluctuate significantly.
  • Limited trading volume and a reduction in analyst coverage of our common stock may contribute to its price volatility.
  • Our common stock is thinly traded, and investors may be unable to sell their shares at their desired prices, or at all, and sales of large blocks of shares may adversely affect the price of our common stock.
  • If we raise additional capital in the future, existing shareholder ownership interest in the Company could be diluted or otherwise adversely impacted, and future sales of our common stock or other financing arrangements may cause our stock price to decline.
  • We take advantage of specified scaled disclosure requirements applicable to a “smaller reporting company” under Regulation S-K, and the information that we provide to stockholders may therefore be different than they might receive from other public companies. If some investors find our shares of common stock less attractive as a result of this scaled disclosure, there may be a less active trading market for our shares of common stock, which may increase the volatility of the market price of our common stock.
