TRACK GROUP, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

 

(1) BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial information of Track Group, Inc. and subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “Track Group”) has been prepared in accordance with the Instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying interim consolidated financial information contains all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2022, and results of its operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual consolidated financial statements and notes thereto that are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on December 16, 2021. The results of operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 may not be indicative of the results for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022.

 

As of March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2021, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $298,681,608 and $298,828,527, respectively. The Company had a net income of $146,919 and $3,507,725 for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $42,864,000 of debt maturing in July 2024 and six notes payable maturing between January 2, 2024 and February 17, 2025 related to the construction of two monitoring centers in Chile totaling $1,276,628 (See Note 19). The Company’s continuation of profitable operations is dependent upon generating a level of revenue adequate to support its cost structure, which it has achieved on an operating basis, although the Company needs to resolve its largest debt obligation which matures on July 1, 2024. Management has evaluated the significance of these conditions and has determined that the Company can meet its operating obligations for a reasonable period of time. The Company expects to fund operations using cash on hand and through operational cash flows through the upcoming twelve months.

 

 

(2) PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Track Group, Inc. and its active subsidiaries, Track Group Analytics Limited, Track Group Americas, Inc., Track Group International LTD., and Track Group - Chile SpA. All significant inter-company transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

 

(3) RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) or other standard setting bodies, which are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04,Intangibles Goodwill and Other: Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment”. The new guidance simplifies the subsequent measurement of goodwill by removing the second step of the two-step impairment test. The amendment requires an entity to perform its annual or interim goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An entity still has the option to perform the qualitative assessment for a reporting unit to determine if the quantitative impairment test is necessary. The new guidance for accelerated filing companies became effective for annual periods or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and all other entities should adopt the amendments in this update for its annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The amendment should be applied on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. Management does not anticipate that this adoption will have a significant impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13,Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments”. ASU 2016-13 adds a current expected credit loss (“CECL”) impairment model to U.S. GAAP that is based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. Modified retrospective adoption is required with any cumulative-effect adjustment recorded to retained earnings as of the beginning of the period of adoption. ASU 2016-13 became effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, excluding smaller reporting entities, which will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company will adopt ASU 2016-13 in fiscal year 2024. The Company does not expect the application of the CECL impairment model to have a significant impact on our allowance for uncollectible amounts for accounts receivable.

(4) IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

The Company reviews its long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the book value of an asset may not be recoverable and in the case of goodwill, at least annually. The Company evaluates whether events and circumstances have occurred which indicate possible impairment as of each balance sheet date. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment charge is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the estimated fair value of the asset. Impairment of long-lived assets is assessed at the lowest levels for which there is an identifiable fair value that is independent of other groups of assets.

 

 

(5) BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

 

The Company accounts for its business acquisitions under the acquisition method of accounting as indicated in ASC 805,Business Combinations”, which requires the acquiring entity in a business combination to recognize the fair value of all assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree, and establishes the acquisition date as the fair value measurement point. Accordingly, the Company recognizes assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations, including contingent assets and liabilities and non-controlling interest in the acquiree, based on fair value estimates as of the date of acquisition. In accordance with ASC 805, the Company recognizes and measures goodwill as of the acquisition date, as the excess of the fair value of the consideration paid over the fair value of the identified net assets acquired.

 

Acquired Assets and Assumed Liabilities

 

Pursuant to ASC No. 805-10-25, if the initial accounting for a business combination is incomplete by the end of the reporting period in which the combination occurs, but during the allowed measurement period not to exceed one year from the acquisition date, the Company retrospectively adjusts the provisional amounts recognized at the acquisition date, by means of adjusting the amount recognized for goodwill.

 

Contingent Consideration

 

In certain acquisitions, the Company has agreed to pay additional amounts to the seller contingent upon achievement by the acquired businesses of certain future goals, which may include revenue milestones, new customer accounts, and earnings targets. The Company records contingent consideration based on its estimated fair value as of the date of the acquisition. The Company evaluates and adjusts the value of contingent consideration, if necessary, at each reporting period based on the progress toward and likely achievement of certain targets on which issuance of the contingent consideration is based. Any differences between the acquisition-date fair value and the changes in fair value of the contingent consideration subsequent to the acquisition date are recognized in current period earnings until the arrangement is settled. If there is uncertainty surrounding the value of contingent consideration, then the Company’s policy is to wait until the end of the measurement period before making an adjustment.

 

 

(6) ACCUMULATED OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME (LOSS)

 

Comprehensive income (loss) includes net income (loss) as currently reported under GAAP and other comprehensive income (loss). Other comprehensive income (loss) considers the effects of additional economic events, such as foreign currency translation adjustments, that are not required to be recorded in determining net income (loss), but rather are reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity. The Chilean Peso, New Israeli Shekel and the Canadian Dollar are used as functional currencies of the following operating subsidiaries: (i) Track Group Chile SpA; (ii) Track Group International Ltd.; and (iii) Track Group Analytics Limited, respectively. The balance sheets of all subsidiaries have been converted into United States Dollars at the prevailing exchange rate at March 31, 2022.

 

 

(7) NET INCOME (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic net income (loss) per common share (“Basic EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.

 

Diluted net income (loss) per common share (“Diluted EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the sum of the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and the weighted-average dilutive common share equivalents outstanding. The computation of Diluted EPS does not assume exercise or conversion of securities that would have an anti-dilutive effect.

 

- 6-

 

 

Common share equivalents consist of shares issuable upon the exercise of common stock options and warrants. As of March 31, 2022 and 2021, there were 15,000 outstanding common share equivalents that were not included in the computation of Basic EPS and Diluted EPS for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, as their effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

At March 31, 2022, 394,373 stock options and warrants had exercise prices that were below the market price of $1.50, and have been included in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations. At March 31, 2021, 574,387 stock options and warrants had exercise prices that were below the market price of $1.60, and have been included in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculations.

(8) REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

Monitoring and Other Related Services. Monitoring services include two components: (i) lease contracts pursuant to which the Company provides monitoring services and lease devices to distributors or end users and the Company retains ownership of the leased device; and (ii) monitoring services purchased by distributors or end users who have previously purchased monitoring devices and opt to use the Company’s monitoring services. Sales of devices and leased GPS devices are required to use the Company’s monitoring service and both the GPS leased devices and monitoring services are accounted for as a single performance obligation. Monitoring revenue is recognized ratably over time, as the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefit of these services as they are performed. Payment due or received from the customers prior to rendering the associated services are recorded as deferred revenue. The balance of accounts receivables at March 31, 2022, September 30, 2021 and October 1, 2020 are $6,320,661, $7,163,615 and $5,546,213, respectively. The balances of the deferred revenue at March 31, 2022, September 30, 2021 and October 1, 2020 are $24,913, $22,500 and $147,921, respectively, and are included in accrued liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company recognized $92,015 and $99,515, respectively, of deferred revenue in the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and $43,119 and $91,935, respectively, of deferred revenue in the three and six months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Product Sales and Other. The Company sells devices and replacement parts to customers under certain contracts, as well as law enforcement software licenses and maintenance, and analytical software. Revenue from the sale of devices and parts is recognized upon their transfer of control to the customer, which is generally upon delivery. Delivery is considered complete at either the time of shipment or arrival at destination, based on the agreed upon terms within the contract. Payment terms are generally 30 days from invoice date.

 

Multiple Element Arrangements. The majority of our revenue transactions do not have multiple elements. However, on occasion, the Company may enter into revenue transactions that have multiple elements. These may include different combinations of products or services that are included in a single billable rate. These products or services are delivered over time as the customer utilizes our services. In cases where obligations in a contract are distinct and thus require separation into multiple performance obligations, revenue recognition guidance requires that contract consideration be allocated to each distinct performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price. The value allocated to each performance obligation is then recognized as revenue when the revenue recognition criteria for each distinct promise or bundle of promises has been met.

 

The standalone selling price for each performance obligation is an amount that depicts the amount of consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring the good or service. When there is only one performance obligation associated with a contract, the entire sale value is attributed to that obligation. When a contract contains multiple performance obligations the transaction value is first allocated using the observable price, which is generally a list price net of applicable discount or the price used to sell in similar circumstances. In circumstances when a selling price is not directly observable, the Company will estimate the standalone selling price using information available to us.

(20) PREFERRED AND COMMON STOCK

 

The Company is authorized to issue up to 30,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share, and up to 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.0001 par value per share. The Company’s Board of Directors has the authority to amend the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, without further stockholder approval, to designate and determine, in whole or in part, the preferences, limitations and relative rights of the preferred stock before any issuance of the preferred stock, and to create one or more series of preferred stock. As of March 31, 2022, there were 0 shares of preferred stock outstanding.

 

NaN dividends were paid during the six months ended March 31, 2022 or 2021.

 

Series A Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On October 12, 2017, the Company filed a Certificate of Designation of the Relative Rights and Preferences (“Certificate of Designation”) with the Delaware Division of Corporations, designating 1,200,000 shares of the Company’s preferred stock as Series A Preferred. Shares of Series A Preferred rank senior to the Company’s common stock, and all other classes and series of equity securities of the Company that by their terms do not rank senior to the Series A Preferred.

 

Except with respect to transactions upon which holders of the Series A Preferred are entitled to vote separately as a class under the terms of the Certificate of Designation, the Series A Preferred has no voting rights. The shares of common stock into which the Series A Preferred is convertible shall, upon issuance, have all of the same voting rights as other issued and outstanding shares of our common stock.

 

The Series A Preferred has no separate dividend rights; however, whenever the Board declares a dividend on the Company’s common stock, if ever, each holder of record of a share of Series A Preferred shall be entitled to receive an amount equal to such dividend declared on one share of common stock multiplied by the number of shares of common stock into which such share of Series A Preferred could be converted on the Record Date.

 

Each share of Series A Preferred has a Liquidation Preference of $35.00 per share, and is convertible, at the holder’s option, into ten shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to adjustments as set forth in the Certificate of Designation, at any time beginning five hundred and forty days after the date of issuance.

 

As of March 31, 2022, 0 shares of Series A Preferred were issued and outstanding.

 

 

(21) STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANTS

 

Stock Incentive Plan

 

At the annual meeting of stockholders on April 13, 2022, our stockholders approved the 2022 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2022 Plan”), previously approved by the Company’s Board. The 2022 Plan provides for the grant of incentive stock options and nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights, performance shares, performance stock units, dividend equivalents, stock payments, deferred stock, restricted stock units, other stock-based awards and performance-based awards to employees and certain non-employees who provide services to the Company in lieu of cash. A total of 500,000 shares are authorized for issuance pursuant to awards granted under the 2022 Plan.

 

The 2022 Plan supersedes and replaces the Company’s 2012 Equity Compensation Plan (the “2012 Plan”). As of June 30, 2020, the Board of Directors suspended further awards under the 2012 Plan. Any awards outstanding under the 2012 Plan will remain subject to the 2012 Plan. All shares of Common Stock remaining authorized and available for issuance under the 2012 Plan and any shares subject to outstanding awards under the 2012 Plan that subsequently expire, terminate, or are surrendered or forfeited for any reason without issuance of shares will automatically become available for issuance under our 2022 Plan. There were 27,218 shares of common stock available under the 2012 Plan as of March 31, 2022. The Company recorded expense of $0 for both the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 related to the vesting of common stock awarded, prior to the suspension of the 2012 Plan.

All Options and Warrants

 

The fair value of each stock option and warrant grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The Company recorded expense of $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, related to the issuance and vesting of outstanding stock options and warrants. During the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company granted 0 options or warrants to purchase shares of common stock under the 2012 Plan. All options and warrants outstanding under the 2012 Plan have vested and are exercisable as of March 31, 2022.

 

The expected life of stock options (warrants) represents the period of time that the stock options or warrants are expected to be outstanding based on the simplified method allowed under GAAP. The expected volatility is based on the historical price volatility of the Company’s common stock. The risk-free interest rate represents the U.S. Treasury bill rate for the expected life of the related stock options (warrants). The dividend yield represents the Company’s anticipated cash dividends over the expected life of the stock options (warrants).

(22) INCOME TAXES

 

The Company recognizes deferred income tax assets or liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the financial statements or income tax returns. Deferred income tax assets or liabilities are determined based upon the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates expected to apply when the differences are expected to be settled or realized. Deferred income tax assets are reviewed periodically for recoverability and valuation allowances are provided as necessary. Interest and penalties related to income tax liabilities, when incurred, are classified in interest expense and income tax provision, respectively.

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred net income for income tax purposes of $146,919 and $3,507,725, respectively. The amount and ultimate realization of the benefits from the net operating losses is dependent, in part, upon the tax laws in effect, our future earnings, and other future events, the effects of which cannot be determined. The Company has established a valuation allowance for all deferred income tax assets not offset by deferred income tax liabilities due to the uncertainty of their realization. Accordingly, there is no benefit for income taxes in the accompanying statements of operations.

 

In computing income tax, we recognize an income tax provision in tax jurisdictions in which we have pre-tax income for the period and are expecting to generate pre-tax book income during the fiscal year.

(23) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Legal Matters

 

The Company is, from time to time, involved in various legal proceedings incidental to the conduct of our business. Historically, the outcome of all such legal proceedings has not, in the aggregate, had a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. Other than as set forth below, there are no additional pending or threatened legal proceedings at this time.

 

SecureAlert, Inc. v. Federal Government of Mexico (Department of the Interior). On March 24, 2017, SecureAlert Inc. filed a complaint before the Federal Administrative Tribunal, asserting the failure by defendants to pay claimant amounts agreed to, and due under, the Pluri Annual Contract for the Rendering of Monitoring Services of Internees, through Electric Bracelets, in the Islas Marias Penitentiary Complex dated July 15, 2011, entered into by and between the Organo Administrativo Desconcentrado Prevencion y Readaptacion Social (“OADPRS”) of the then Public Security Department, and presently, an agency of the National Security Commission of the Department of the Interior, and SecureAlert, Inc., presently Track Group, Inc. The Company’s claim amount is upwards of $6.0 million. The Supreme Court took action to resolve previous, conflicting decisions regarding the jurisdiction of such claims and determined that such claims will be resolved by the Federal Administrative Tribunal. Subsequently, plaintiff filed an Amparo action before the Collegiate Court, seeking an appeal of the Federal Administrative Court’s earlier decision against plaintiff. The Collegiate Court issued a ruling in August 2019 that the matter of dispute was previously resolved by a lower court in 2016. The Company disagreed with this ruling and on November 11, 2020 made a re-demand of the OADPRS for payment due under the July 15, 2011 contract. The OADPRS failed to respond within its allotted 3 months’ time-period and the Company filed an Amparo Action on May 6, 2021, which was dismissed. The Company additionally filed a motion for annulment with the Federal Administrative Tribunal on August 4, 2021. The Company was notified on January 6, 2022 that the OADPRS had filed their answer on November 12, 2021. On January 25, 2022, the Company filed its reply, and is awaiting the Court’s ruling. Based upon the fee arrangement the Company has with its counsel, we anticipate the future liabilities attributable to legal expense will be minimal.

 

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, through its Trustees v. International Surveillance Services Corporation. On January 23, 2020, the Company was served with a summons for an Adversary Action pending against International Surveillance Services Corporation (“ISS”), a subsidiary of the Company, now known as Track Group – Puerto Rico Inc., in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico seeking to avoid and recover allegedly constructive fraudulent transfers and to disallow claims pursuant to United States Bankruptcy and Puerto Rican law. The allegations stem from payments made to ISS between 2014 and 2017, which the Company believes were properly made in accordance with a contract between ISS and the government of Puerto Rico, through the Oficina de Servicios con Antelacion a Juicio, originally signed in 2011. The Company is confident that all payments it received were earned and due under applicable law and has produced documentation supporting its position in an informal document exchange with the Commonwealth on July 6, 2020. On August 26, 2021, the Court entered an order staying the Adversary Action pending the Court’s confirmation of the Commonwealth’s Proposed Plan of Adjustment. In accordance with the terms of the August 26, 2021 order, the Company moved to lift the stay on January 11, 2022, though that motion was denied without prejudice on February 4, 2022. The case remains stayed at the present time with a hearing on the status of the stay set for May 18, 2022.

 

Eli Sabag v. Track Group, Inc., et al. On March 12, 2020, Eli Sabag commenced an arbitration with the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, Case Number 01-20-0003-6931. The arbitration claim, as it pertains to the Company, alleges breach of the Share Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) between the Company and Sabag. Sabag alleges that the Company breached the SPA because it failed to pay him his earn-out after it sold or leased a sufficient number of GPS Global Tracking devices to meet the earn-out milestone, or alternatively, breached the SPA by failing to act in “good faith” to allow Sabag to achieve his earn-out. Sabag further claims that the Company fraudulently induced Sabag to sell GPS Global Tracking and Surveillance System Ltd. to the Company. The Company has entered its appearance and on July 17, 2020, filed its Answer denying the allegations of the claim and asserting numerous defenses. The Company is currently negotiating with the plaintiff to settle the dispute, and an arbitration previously scheduled for April 2022 was postponed and new arbitration dates have been tentatively scheduled from October 24, 2022 through October 28, 2022. Although the Company is currently engaged in settlement negotiations, no assurances can be given that we will be successful.  In the event the Company is not successful, we intend to vigorously defend the allegations, and remain confident that the terms of the earn-out milestone were not met by the petitioner.

 

Jeffrey Mohamed Abed v. Track Group, Inc., et al. On June 7, 2021, Jeffrey Mohamed Abed filed a complaint seeking unspecified damages in the Superior Court of the State of California in Case No. 21 STCV 21345, alleging strict products liability, negligence and breach of implied warranty premised upon injuries sustained by Abed who was involved in an automobile accident while wearing a GPS tracking device of the Company. The Company was served on October 15, 2021 and filed its Answer and Affirmative Defenses on November 12, 2021. On January 11, 2022 the Company issued discovery, and the discovery process remains ongoing. The Company disputes Abed’s claims and will defend the case vigorously. The Company remains confident in its position and no accrual for a potential loss has been made, after consultation with legal counsel.

 

Track Group Chile SpA. v. Republic of Chile. On January 24, 2022, Track Group Chile SpA. initiated a judicial action in the Court of Justice of Chile to settle a contract dispute with the Republic of Chile. The Company asserts that it has complied with its contractual obligations and that any delays in so doing were not attributable to the Company. The Company remains confident in its position and no accrual for a potential loss has been made, after consultation with legal counsel.

Monitoring Equipment

 

The Company leases monitoring equipment to its customers with contract terms varying from month-to-month to several years and each daily contract price varies. Devices supplied to customers are not serial number unique and a single device may be used by multiple customers over its useful life. If a leased device is returned for repair, it will likely be replaced with a different device from a different customer or possibly a new device.

 

The Company’s tracking devices are considered operating leases under ASC 842 as transfer of control of the asset does not occur at the end of the lease, a single device is not specific to a customer and devices may be used by multiple customers throughout their life cycle. Due to the movement of devices from customer to customer, relatively few long-term contracts, the measurement of the equipment life and the present value of the equipment’s fair values would not be a measurement to qualify the devices as sales-type leases. No change to the Company’s accounting treatment of devices occurred with the adoption of ASC 842.

 

Operating lease revenue associated with the Company’s monitoring equipment for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are shown in the table below:

Performance Bonds

 

As of March 31, 2022, Company has two performance bonds in connection with a foreign customer totaling $2,343,243 (“Performance Bonds”), of which $1,640,239 is held in an interest-bearing account on behalf of the customer and is recorded in Other Assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The remaining amount of $703,004 is guaranteed by a foreign financial institution on behalf of the Company. The amounts held on the two Performance Bonds will be released approximately 90 days after the expiration of the Performance Bonds, of which $306,330 expires on January 18, 2023 and $1,333,909 expires on July 2, 2024.

 

In March 2021, the Company placed a $666,970 deposit into an interest-bearing account with a financial institution to replace the performance bond expiring on July 2, 2024, whereby the portion guaranteed by the financial institution will increase from 30% to 65% of the total bond. The current bond expiring July 2, 2024 will be released following completion of the transaction.

 

The Company pays interest on the full amount of the Performance Bonds to the financial institution providing the guarantee at 3.5% interest per annum for the Performance Bond which will expire in January 2023 and 2.8% interest per annum for the Performance Bond expiring in July 2024. The Company recorded interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021 of $16,248 and $18,867, respectively. The Company recorded interest expense for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021 of $33,416 and $37,329, respectively.

 

 

(24) SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

At the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders on April 13, 2022, our stockholders approved the 2022 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan, previously approved by the Company’s Board. The 2022 Plan provides for the grant of incentive stock options and nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights, performance shares, performance stock units, dividend equivalents, stock payments, deferred stock, restricted stock units, other stock-based awards and performance-based awards to employees and certain non-employees who provide services to the Company in lieu of cash. A total of 500,000 shares are authorized for issuance pursuant to awards granted under the 2022 Plan.

 

In accordance with the Subsequent Events Topic of the FASB ASC 855, we have evaluated subsequent events, through the filing date and noted no subsequent events other than those noted above that are reasonably likely to impact the financial statements.

General

 

Our business is based on the leasing of patented tracking and monitoring solutions to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, both in the U.S. and abroad, for the electronic monitoring of offenders and offering unique data analytics services on a platform-as-a-service (“PaaS”) business model. Currently, the Company deploys offender-based management services that combine patented GPS tracking technologies, full-time 24/7/365 global monitoring capabilities, case management, and proprietary data analytics. The Company offers customizable tracking solutions that leverage real-time tracking data, best-practices monitoring, and analytics capabilities to create complete, end-to-end tracking solutions.

 

Our devices consist principally of the ReliAlert® product line, which is supplemented by the Shadow product line. These devices are generally leased on a daily rate basis and may be combined with our monitoring center services, proprietary software and data analytics subscription to provide an end-to-end PaaS.

 

ReliAlert®XC 4 - ReliAlert®XC4 is our flagship GPS device, which is the safest and most reliable monitoring device ever made. It is the only one-piece GPS device with patented 3-way voice communication to assist intervention efforts, now on the LTE network with increased battery life. This device includes on-board processing, secondary location technology, a 95db siren, embedded RF technology, anti-tampering capability, increased battery life and sleep mode.

 

ReliAlert®-XC 3 - Advanced features enable agencies to effectively track offender movements and communicate directly with offenders in real-time, through a patented, on-board two/three-way voice communication technology. This device includes an enhanced GPS antenna and GPS module for higher sensitivity GPS, enhanced voice audio quality, increased battery performance of 50+ hours, 3G cellular capabilities, improved tamper sensory, and durability enhancements.

 

Shadow - Driven by customer demand to improve the performance and affordability of offender tracking devices, Shadow is the smallest and lightest device of its kind with a sleek, modern design featuring an enhanced mobile charging capability that makes it easier to use. The device is 3G compliant and fully supported by all global mobility providers.

 

 

 

Monitoring Center Services. Our monitoring centers provide live 24/7/365 monitoring of all alarms generated from our devices, as well as customer and technical support. Our monitoring center operators play a vital role, and as such, are staffed with highly trained, bi-lingual individuals. These operators act as an extension of agency resources receiving alarms, communicating and intervening with offenders regarding violations, and interacting with supervision staff, all pursuant to agency-established protocols. The facilities have redundant power source, battery backup and triple redundancy in voice, data, and IP. We have assisted in the establishment of monitoring centers for customers and local partners in the United States, Chile and other global locations.

 

Data Analytics Services. Our IntelliTrack, TrackerPAL® software, IntelliTrack Mobile, TrackerPAL® Mobile, combined with our Data Analytic analysis tools, provide an integrated platform allowing case managers and law enforcement officers quick access views of an offender’s travel behavior, mapping, and inference on patterns. Our data analytics services help facilitate the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in diverse location and behavioral data that helps agencies reduce risks and improve decision making. Our analytics applications use various combinations of statistical analysis procedures, data and text mining, and predictive modeling to proactively analyze information on community-released offenders to discover hidden relationships and patterns in their behaviors and to predict future outcomes.

 

Other Services. The Company offers smartphone applications specifically designed for the criminal justice market, including a domestic violence app that creates a mobile geo-zone around a survivor and an alcohol monitoring app linked to a police-grade breathalyzer.

 

Business Strategy

 

We are committed to helping our customers improve offender rehabilitation and re-socialization outcomes through our innovative hardware, software, and services. We treat our business as a service business. Although we still manufacture patented tracking technology, we see the physical goods as only a small part of the integrated offender monitoring solutions we provide. Accordingly, rather than receiving a payment just for a piece of manufactured equipment, the Company receives a recurring stream of revenue for ongoing device agnostic subscription contracts. As part of our strategy, we continue to expand our device-agnostic platform to not only collect, but also store, analyze, assess and correlate location data for both accountability and auditing reasons, as well as to use for predictive analytics and assessment of effective and emerging techniques in criminal behavior and rehabilitation. We believe a high-quality customer experience along with knowledgeable salespeople who can convey the value of our products and services greatly enhances our ability to attract and retain customers. Therefore, our strategy also includes building and expanding our own direct sales force and our third-party distribution network to effectively reach more customers and provide them with a world-class sales and post-sales support experience. In addition, we are developing related-service offerings to address adjacent market opportunities in both the public and private sectors. We believe continual investment in research and development (“R&D”), including smartphone applications and other monitoring services is critical to the development and sale of innovative technologies and integrated solutions today and in the future.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

From time to time, management reviews and evaluates certain accounting policies that are considered to be significant in determining our results of operations and financial position.

 

A description of the Company’s critical accounting policies that affect the preparation of the Company’s financial statements is set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on December 16, 2021. During the six months ended March 31, 2022, there have been no material changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies.

 

The preparation of financial statements requires management to make significant estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expense. By their nature, these judgments are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty. We assess the reasonableness of our estimates, including those related to bad debts, inventories, right of use assets, estimated useful lives, intangible assets, warranty obligations, product liability, revenue, legal matters and income taxes. We base our estimates on historical experience as well as available current information on a regular basis. Management uses this information to form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

 

 

Government Regulation

 

Our operations are subject to various federal, state, local and international laws and regulations. We are not involved in any pending or, to our knowledge, threatened governmental proceedings, which would require curtailment of our operations because of such laws and regulations.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted both the Company’s revenue and costs by disrupting its operations in Chile, causing shortages within the supply chain and postponing certain sales opportunities as some government agencies delay new RFP (Request for Proposal) processes or decisions. (See Item 1A - Risk Factors). Notwithstanding the challenges, the monitoring being performed by the Company’s significant customers across the globe have remained operational as have key business partners providing manufacturing and call center services and at this time, the Company has not experienced unusual payment interruptions from any large customers. As the conditions have improved with respect to COVID-19, both our Chile office and the corporate headquarters in the greater-Chicago area have recently reopened. However, the Company is operating in a rapidly changing environment so the extent to which COVID-19 impacts its business, operations and financial results from this point forward will depend on numerous evolving factors that the Company cannot accurately predict. Those factors include the following: the duration and scope of the pandemic; governmental, business and individuals’ actions that have been and continue to be taken in response to the pandemic; the development of widespread testing or a vaccine; the ability of our supply chain to meet the Company’s need for equipment; the ability to sell and provide services and solutions if shelter in place restrictions and people working from home are extended to ensure employee safety; the volatility of foreign currency exchange rates and the subsequent effect on international transactions; and any closures of clients’ offices or the courts on which they rely.

 

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

 

Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recognized total revenue from operations of $9,484,119 compared to $9,861,830 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of $377,711 or approximately 4%. The $377,711 decrease in total revenue was largely the result of a decrease in domestic monitoring revenue and other related services, partially offset by an increase in product sales. The decrease in monitoring and other related services revenue was principally the result of a decrease of our North American monitoring operations driven by clients in Illinois, Bahamas, Virginia, and Indiana, partially offset by increases in revenue in Canada, Puerto Rico and Chile.

 

Product sales and other revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased to $641,633 from $119,540 in the same period in 2021, an increase of $522,093 or approximately 437%. The Company had product sales to a foreign customer of $520,303 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $0 in the same period in fiscal year 2021.

 

The industry in which the Company operates, as well as many other industries (automotive, consumer products and medical devices), have been impacted by the global semiconductor shortage initially caused by the slowdown of many chip makers and logistics companies due to COVID-19. The shortage, which could last through at least the remainder of 2022, has been exacerbated by the surge in demand for a wide variety of products across several industries, all of which require varying amounts of semiconductors. As a result, until such time as chip manufacturers are able to meet global demand, our future operating results may be negatively impacted.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, cost of revenue totaled $4,945,134 compared to cost of revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $4,426,846, an increase of $518,288 or approximately 12%. The increase in cost of revenue was largely the result of higher depreciation and amortization costs of $267,893, higher server costs of $125,206, higher product sale costs of $109,934, higher hardware costs of $95,603 and higher communication costs of $69,440. These increases were partially offset by lower monitoring center costs of $117,016 and lower commission costs of $53,722.

 

 

 

Depreciation and amortization included in cost of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 totaled $792,915 and $525,022, respectively, an increase of $267,893. These costs represent the depreciation of ReliAlert® and other monitoring devices, as well as the amortization of monitoring software and certain royalty agreements. The increase in depreciation and amortization costs is largely due to the amortization of our new software monitoring platform and other new software initiatives of $316,062, which began on July 1, 2021, partially offset by a decrease in depreciation expense related to fully depreciated devices. We believe the equipment lives on which the depreciation is based are appropriate due to rapid changes in electronic monitoring technology and the corresponding potential for obsolescence. Management periodically assesses the useful life of the devices for appropriateness. Amortization of a patent related to GPS and satellite tracking is also included in cost of sales.

 

Gross Profit and Margin

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, gross profit totaled $4,538,985, resulting in a gross margin of approximately 48%. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, gross profit totaled $5,434,984, resulting in a gross margin of approximately 55%. The decrease in absolute gross profit of $895,999 or approximately 16% is due to lower revenue and increases in certain costs of revenue, including depreciation and amortization, server costs, product sale costs, hardware costs and communication costs, partially offset by lower monitoring costs and commission costs.

 

General and Administrative Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, general and administrative expense totaled $2,770,657 compared to $2,313,836 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase of $456,821 or approximately 20% in general and administrative expense resulted largely from higher legal and professional fees of $245,451, higher bad debt expense of $78,050, higher fees and license costs of $64,425, higher consulting costs of $52,698 and higher insurance costs of $29,173. These costs were offset by lower payroll and related taxes of $53,710 and lower training and recruiting of $32,160.

 

Selling and Marketing Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, selling and marketing expense totaled $720,709 compared to $614,409 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in expense of $106,300 or approximately 17% is principally the result of higher consulting and outside service expenses of $37,342. higher payroll and taxes of $36,149 and higher travel and entertainment cots of $11,808.

 

Research and Development Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, research and development expense totaled $625,477 compared to $334,569 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in expense of $290,908 or approximately 87% resulted largely from continuous improvements of our existing software, resulting in increased payroll and related tax expense of $274,512 after the implementation and subsequent amortization of our new monitoring software. As a result of the implementation of our new monitoring software on July 1, 2021, capitalization of developed technology decreased to $221,918 during the three months ended March 31, 2022, which represents technology projects currently in development compared to the $500,279 which was capitalized in the three months ended March 31, 2021. A portion of this expense would have been recognized as research and development expense, absent the significant enhancements to the technology.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, depreciation and amortization expense totaled $414,771 compared to $510,067 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of $95,296 or approximately 19%, largely due to fully depreciated assets.

 

Total Operating Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, total operating expense increased to $4,531,614 compared to $3,772,881 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $758,733 or approximately 20%. The increase is principally due to the factors disclosed above.

 

 

 

Operating Income

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, operating income was $7,371 compared to $1,662,103 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a reduction of $1,654,732 or over 99%. This reduction was due to a decrease in gross profit of $895,999, which resulted from lower revenue and higher cost of revenue directly related to the amortization of our new monitoring software platform, higher server costs, higher product sale costs, higher hardware costs and higher communication costs. These increases were partially offset by lower monitoring center costs and lower commission. In addition, the Company incurred higher general and administrative, selling and marketing, and research and development costs. These increases were partially offset by lower depreciation and amortization expenses in operating expense.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, other income (expense) totaled income of $571,664 compared to income of $559,450 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, an increase in net other income of $12,214. The increase in other income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 is largely due to a vendor forgiving $633,471 of accrued expenses, positive currency exchange rate movements of $272,153 compared to the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2021, and lower interest expense, net of $107,346 compared to the second fiscal quarter of 2021. These improvements were offset by a gain on the forgiveness of loans in the three months ended March 31, 2021, of $1,000,756. See Note 19.

 

Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders

 

The Company had net income attributable to common stockholders of $452,241 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $2,184,231 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a reduction of $1,731,990. This decline is largely due to lower operating income and higher income taxes.

 

Six Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to Six Months Ended March 31, 2021

 

Revenue

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recognized revenue from operations of $19,079,775, compared to $19,263,735 for the six months ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of $183,960 or approximately 1%. Of this revenue, $18,312,215 and $19,014,019, respectively, are from monitoring and other related services, a decrease of $701,804 or approximately 4%. The decrease in revenue was principally the result of a decrease of our North American monitoring operations driven by clients in Virginia, Bahamas, Indiana, Illinois and Washington DC, partially offset by increases of our customers in Canada, Chile, Puerto Rico and Georgia.

 

Other revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2022 increased to $767,560 from $249,716 in the same period in 2021 largely due to product sales to a foreign customer.

 

The industry in which the Company operates, as well as many other industries (automotive, consumer products and medical devices), have been impacted by the global semiconductor shortage initially caused by the slowdown of many chip makers and logistics companies due to COVID-19. The shortage, which could last through at least the remainder of 2022, has been exacerbated by the surge in demand for a wide variety of products across several industries, all of which require varying amounts of semiconductors. As a result, until such time as chip manufacturers are able to meet global demand, our future operating results may be negatively impacted. See Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, cost of revenue totaled $9,740,561 compared to cost of revenue during the six months ended March 31, 2021 of $8,615,947, an increase of $1,124,614 or approximately 13%. The increase in cost of revenue was largely the result of higher depreciation and amortization costs of $643,067, higher server costs of $239,187, higher software maintenance costs of $116,680, higher product sales costs of $105,734, higher hardware purchases of $59,346 and higher communication costs of $59,298, partially offset by lower repair costs of $75,402, and lower lost, stolen and damaged costs of $34,145. The higher depreciation and amortization costs are largely due to the amortization of our new monitoring software which began in July 2021.

 

Depreciation and amortization included in cost of revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 totaled $1,656,764 and $1,013,697, respectively. The increase in depreciation and amortization costs of $643,067 is largely due to the amortization of our new software monitoring platform and other new software initiatives of $633,706, which began on July 1, 2021 and a minimal increase in depreciation expense related to devices. Devices are depreciated over a one to five-year useful life. Royalty agreements are being amortized over a ten-year useful life. The Company believes these equipment and software lives are appropriate due to changes in electronic monitoring technology and the corresponding potential for obsolescence. Management periodically assesses the useful life of the devices for appropriateness. Amortization of a patent related to GPS and satellite tracking is also included in cost of sales.

 

 

 

Gross Profit and Margin

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, gross profit totaled $9,339,214, resulting in a gross margin of approximately 49%, compared to $10,647,788, or a gross margin of approximately 55% during the six months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in absolute gross profit of $1,308,574, or approximately 12%, is due to a decrease in revenue of $183,960 and increases in certain costs of revenue, including higher depreciation and amortization costs of $643,067, higher server costs, higher software maintenance costs, higher product sales costs, higher hardware purchases and higher communication costs, partially offset by lower repair costs and lower lost, stolen and damaged costs.

 

General and Administrative Expense

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, general and administrative expense totaled $5,269,016 compared to $4,714,571 for the six months ended March 31, 2021. The increase of $554,445 or approximately 12% in general and administrative costs resulted largely from higher legal and professional fees of $277,193, higher consulting costs of $62,667, higher insurance costs of $63,392, higher fees and licenses of $59,068, higher travel and entertainment costs of $32,986 and higher training and recruiting costs of $28,561. These costs were partially offset by lower payroll and taxes of $27,612.

 

Selling and Marketing Expense

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, selling and marketing expense totaled $1,418,581 compared to $1,164,866 for the six months ended March 31, 2021. This increase of $253,715, or approximately 22%, resulted largely from higher payroll and related taxes of $107,230, higher consulting and outside service costs of $72,900, higher travel and entertainment costs of $30,859 and trade show costs of $17,521.

 

Research and Development Expense

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, research and development expense totaled $1,216,329 compared to research and development expense for the six months ended March 31, 2021 totaling $641,863, an increase of $574,466, or approximately 89% resulted largely from continuous improvements of our existing software, resulting in increased payroll and related tax expense of $540,225 after our implementation and subsequent commencement of amortization of our new monitoring software and higher travel and entertainment of $18,922. As a result of the implementation of our new monitoring software on July 1, 2021, capitalization of developed technology decreased to $310,525 during the six months ended March 31, 2022, which represents technology projects currently in development compared to the $897,681 which was capitalized in the six months ended March 31, 2021. A portion of this expense would have been recognized as research and development expense, absent the significant enhancements to the technology.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expense

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, depreciation and amortization expense totaled $831,572, compared to $1,041,830 for the six months ended March 31, 2021. This decrease of $210,258, or approximately 20%, was largely due to fully depreciated assets.

 

Total Operating Expense

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, total operating expense increased to $8,735,498 compared to $7,563,130 for the six months ended March 31, 2021, an increase of $1,172,368, or approximately 16%. The increase was largely due to higher general and administrative expense of $554,445, higher selling and marketing expense of $253,715 and higher research and development costs of $574,466 as disclosed above. These costs were partially offset by lower depreciation and amortization of $210,258.

 

Operating Income

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, operating income was $603,716 compared to $3,084,658 for the six months ended March 31, 2021, a reduction of $2,480,942, or approximately 80%. This decline was due to a reduction in gross profit of $1,308,574, and an increase in operating expense of $1,172,368.

 

 

 

Other Income and Expense

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2022, other income totaled other expense of ($16,174) compared to other income of $738,080 for the six months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in other expense of $754,254 in net other expense was a result of negative currency exchange rate movements of $652,751 and a decrease in other income, net of $367,311, partially offset by a reduction in interest expense of $265,808. Other income, net largely represents $633,471 of accrued expenses recently forgiven by a vendor and a gain on forgiveness of loans of $1,000,756 in the six months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Net income Attributable to Common Shareholders

 

The Company had net income from continuing operations for the six months ended March 31, 2022 totaling $146,919 compared to a net income of $3,507,725 for the six months ended March 31, 2021, representing a decline of $3,360,806 or approximately 96%.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company is currently self-funded through net cash provided by operating activities.

 

On May 19, 2020, the Company received net proceeds of $933,200 from a potentially forgivable loan from the United States Small Business Administration pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program enacted by Congress under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (15 U.S.C. 636(a)(36)) (the “CARES Act”) administered by the SBA (the “PPP Loan”). On December 8, 2020, the Company filed the application for forgiveness with BMO Harris Bank National Association (the “Lender”) and on January 8, 2021, the Company received a notification from the Lender that the SBA remitted funds to fully repay the PPP Loan, and that the funds were utilized to pay-off and close the PPP Loan and that the PPP Loan was fully forgiven.

 

On October 21, 2020, the Company requested, in writing, an additional extension to the maturity date of that certain facility agreement between the Company and Conrent Invest, S.A. (Conrent"), dated December 30, 2013, as amended on February 24, 2019, and further amended on January 7, 2020 (the "Amended Facility Agreement"), which previously provided for a $30.4 million unsecured debt facility. On November 25, 2020, the investors who owned the securities from Conrent used to finance the facility (the "Noteholders") held a meeting to address the Company’s request and approved a new maturity date of July 1, 2024. On December 21, 2020, Conrent and the Company signed an amendment to the Amended Facility Agreement (the "Amended Facility") which extends the maturity date of the agreement to July 1, 2024, capitalizes the accrued and unpaid interest increasing the outstanding principal amount and reduces the interest rate of the Amended Facility from 8% to 4%. On March 1, 2021, Conrent completed their documentation and the updated registration process to implement these changes and the Company transferred $12,531,556 of accrued interest to the Amended Facility for total principal of $42,931,556. Conrent forgave $67,556 of the aggregate amount due under the Amended Facility and the principal and interest due under the Amended Facility became $42,864,000. Interest payments are scheduled to be made on June 30 and December 31 each year, which began on June 30, 2021. We began amortizing deferred financing fees of approximately $360,000 on July 1, 2021. As of March 31, 2022, $42,864,000 of principal and $0.4 million of interest was owed to Conrent. The Company paid Conrent the $876,331 interest due on January 5, 2022.

Management will continue to seek other sources of capital, refinancing options, prepayment of debt at a discount and potentially other transactions including the exchange of some debt for an equity related security to reduce its total debt and assist in meeting all of its future obligations. While management believes it will be successful in completing one or more of these alternatives prior to the maturity of the Amended Facility Agreement in July 2024, no assurances can be given.

 

Other than the above-mentioned items, no borrowings or sales of equity securities occurred during the six months ended March 31, 2022 or during the year ended September 30, 2021.

 

Net Cash Flows provided by Operating Activities.

 

During the six months ended March 31, 2022, we had cash flows from operating activities of $1,263,350, compared to cash flows from operating activities of $849,085 for the six months ended March 31, 2021, representing a $414,265 increase, or approximately 49%. The increase in cash from operations of $414,265 was largely the result of lower use of cash related to performance bonds and monitoring center assets, a decline in accounts receivable, partially offset by a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities and lower operating income.

 

Net Cash Flows (used in) Investing Activities.

 

The Company used ($2,359,136) of cash from investing activities during the six months ended March 31, 2022, compared to ($2,653,457) of cash used for investing activities during the six months ended March 31, 2021. Cash used for investing activities was used for purchases of monitoring and other equipment to meet customer demand and enhancements of certain software during the six months ended March 31, 2022. For the six months ended March 31, 2022, capitalized software decreased by $587,156 compared to the six months ended March 31, 2021 as the Company completed its new software platform in the third fiscal quarter of 2021, which was partially offset by increased purchases of monitoring equipment and parts of $334,172 compared to the six months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Net Cash Flows provided by (used in) Financing Activities.

 

The Company used ($249,142) of cash from financing activities during the six months ended March 31, 2022, which was largely the result of loan principal payments of ($256,636). The Company was provided $1,623,667 of cash for financing activities during the six months ended March 31, 2021, which included $1,943,213 of proceeds from notes payable, partially offset by the payment of financing fee costs of ($271,084).

 

 

 

Liquidity, Working Capital and Managements Plan

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had unrestricted cash of $7,118,168, compared to unrestricted cash of $8,421,162 as of September 30, 2021. As of March 31, 2022, we had working capital of $9,667,322, compared to working capital of $9,190,430 as of September 30, 2021. This increase in working capital of $476,892 is principally due to cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by the purchase of monitoring equipment and parts.

 

On October 21, 2020, the Company requested, in writing, an additional extension to the maturity date of the Amended Facility Agreement. On November 25, 2020, the Noteholders held a meeting to address the Company’s request and approved a new maturity date of July 1, 2024. On December 21, 2020, Conrent and the Company signed the Amended Facility which extends the maturity date of the agreement to July 1, 2024, capitalizes the accrued and unpaid interest increasing the outstanding principal amount and reduces the interest rate of the Amended Facility from 8% to 4%. On June 28, 2021, the Company restarted interest payments to Conrent which will be made semi-annually going forward. See Note 19 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, the Company borrowed approximately $2.0 million through six notes payable to fund the construction of monitoring centers in Chile required by our new contract. These six notes mature between January 2024 to February 2025, and the principal repayments on these six notes have all commenced. See Note 19 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

The Company believes it will be able to continue to fund future operations using cash on hand, utilizing operational cash flows and through other financings or refinancing.

 

Inflation

 

We do not believe that inflation has had a material impact on our operations or profitability over the four-year period ending in 2020; however, the rise in inflation in 2021 and 2022 has adversely impacted both the Company’s cost of labor and materials, and virtually all other operating expenses.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Financial Arrangements

 

The Company has not entered into any transactions with unconsolidated entities whereby the Company has financial guarantees, derivative instruments, or other contingent arrangements that expose the Company to material continuing risks, contingent liabilities, or any other obligation that provides financing, liquidity, market risk, or credit risk support to the Company.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

The Company footprint extends to a number of countries outside the United States, and we intend to continue to examine international opportunities. As a result, our revenue and results of operations are affected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates, interest rates, transfer pricing changes, taxes and other uncertainties inherent in doing business in more than one currency. In addition, our operations are exposed to risks that are associated with changes in social, political, and economic conditions in the foreign countries in which we operate, including changes in the laws and policies that govern foreign investment, as well as, to a lesser extent, changes in United States laws and regulations relating to foreign trade and investment.

 

Foreign Currency Risks

 

The Company conducts business with foreign customers whose contracts are principally in U.S. dollars or in one instance, in local currency. We had $3,050,246 and $2,924,431 in foreign currency revenue outside of the United States for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. We made and received payments in foreign currencies during the periods indicated, which resulted in foreign exchange gain of $290,091 and $942,842 in the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Fluctuations in the exchange loss or gain in any given period are due to the strengthening or weakening of the U.S. dollar against the Chilean Peso and Canadian dollar which have been magnified by COVID-19, the conflict in Ukraine, inflation, and the government policies established to address those issues. Changes in currency exchange rates affect the relative prices at which we sell our products and purchase goods and services. Given the uncertainty of exchange rate fluctuations, we cannot estimate the effect of these fluctuations on our future business, product pricing, results of operations, or financial condition. We do not use foreign currency exchange contracts or derivative financial instruments for hedging or speculative purposes. To the extent foreign sales become a more significant part of our business in the future, we may seek to implement strategies which make use of these or other instruments in order to minimize the effects of foreign currency exchange on our business.

 

 

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) to ensure that material information relating to the Company is made known to the officers who certify our financial reports and to other members of senior management and the Board of Directors. These disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that are filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2022 was completed pursuant to Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b) under the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective and designed to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms as of March 31, 2022.

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

We maintain a system of internal control over financial reporting that is designed to provide reasonable assurance that our books and records accurately reflect our transactions and that our established policies and procedures are followed. There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting during our quarter ended March 31, 2022 that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

The Company is, from time to time, involved in various legal proceedings incidental to the conduct of our business. Historically, the outcome of all such legal proceedings has not, in the aggregate, had a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. Other than as set forth below, there are no additional pending or threatened legal proceedings at this time.

 

SecureAlert, Inc. v. Federal Government of Mexico (Department of the Interior). On March 24, 2017, SecureAlert Inc. filed a complaint before the Federal Administrative Tribunal, asserting the failure by defendants to pay claimant amounts agreed to, and due under, the Pluri Annual Contract for the Rendering of Monitoring Services of Internees, through Electric Bracelets, in the Islas Marias Penitentiary Complex dated July 15, 2011, entered into by and between the Organo Administrativo Desconcentrado Prevencion y Readaptacion Social (“OADPRS”) of the then Public Security Department, and presently, an agency of the National Security Commission of the Department of the Interior, and SecureAlert, Inc., presently Track Group, Inc. The Company’s claim amount is upwards of $6.0 million. The Supreme Court took action to resolve previous, conflicting decisions regarding the jurisdiction of such claims and determined that such claims will be resolved by the Federal Administrative Tribunal. Subsequently, plaintiff filed an Amparo action before the Collegiate Court, seeking an appeal of the Federal Administrative Court’s earlier decision against plaintiff. The Collegiate Court issued a ruling in August 2019 that the matter of dispute was previously resolved by a lower court in 2016. The Company disagreed with this ruling and on November 11, 2020 made a re-demand of the OADPRS for payment due under the July 15, 2011 contract. The OADPRS failed to respond within its allotted 3 months’ time-period and the Company filed an Amparo Action on May 6, 2021, which was dismissed. The Company additionally filed a motion for annulment with the Federal Administrative Tribunal on August 4, 2021. The Company was notified on January 6, 2022 that the OADPRS had filed their answer on November 12, 2021. On January 25, 2022, the Company filed its reply, and is awaiting the Court’s ruling. Based upon the fee arrangement the Company has with its counsel, we anticipate the future liabilities attributable to legal expense will be minimal.

 

 

 

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, through its Trustees v. International Surveillance Services Corporation. On January 23, 2020, the Company was served with a summons for an Adversary Action pending against International Surveillance Services Corporation (“ISS”), a subsidiary of the Company, now known as Track Group – Puerto Rico Inc., in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico seeking to avoid and recover allegedly constructive fraudulent transfers and to disallow claims pursuant to United States Bankruptcy and Puerto Rican law. The allegations stem from payments made to ISS between 2014 and 2017, which the Company believes were properly made in accordance with a contract between ISS and the government of Puerto Rico, through the Oficina de Servicios con Antelacion a Juicio, originally signed in 2011. The Company is confident that all payments it received were earned and due under applicable law and has produced documentation supporting its position in an informal document exchange with the Commonwealth on July 6, 2020. On August 26, 2021, the Court entered an order staying the Adversary Action pending the Court’s confirmation of the Commonwealth’s Proposed Plan of Adjustment. In accordance with the terms of the August 26, 2021 order, the Company moved to lift the stay on January 11, 2022, though that motion was denied without prejudice on February 4, 2022. The case remains stayed at the present time with a hearing on the status of the stay set for May 18, 2022.

 

Eli Sabag v. Track Group, Inc., et al. On March 12, 2020, Eli Sabag commenced an arbitration with the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, Case Number 01-20-0003-6931. The arbitration claim, as it pertains to the Company, alleges breach of the Share Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) between the Company and Sabag. Sabag alleges that the Company breached the SPA because it failed to pay him his earn-out after it sold or leased a sufficient number of GPS Global Tracking devices to meet the earn-out milestone, or alternatively, breached the SPA by failing to act in “good faith” to allow Sabag to achieve his earn-out. Sabag further claims that the Company fraudulently induced Sabag to sell GPS Global Tracking and Surveillance System Ltd. to the Company. The Company has entered its appearance and on July 17, 2020, filed its Answer denying the allegations of the claim and asserting numerous defenses. The Company is currently negotiating with the plaintiff to settle the dispute, and an arbitration previously scheduled for April 2022 was postponed and new arbitration dates have been tentatively scheduled from October 24, 2022 through October 28, 2022. Although the Company is currently engaged in settlement negotiations, no assurances can be given that we will be successful.  In the event the Company is not successful, we intend to vigorously defend the allegations, and remain confident that the terms of the earn-out milestone were not met by the petitioner.

 

Jeffrey Mohamed Abed v. Track Group, Inc., et al. On June 7, 2021, Jeffrey Mohamed Abed filed a complaint seeking unspecified damages in the Superior Court of the State of California in Case No. 21 STCV 21345, alleging strict products liability, negligence and breach of implied warranty premised upon injuries sustained by Abed who was involved in an automobile accident while wearing a GPS tracking device of the Company. The Company was served on October 15, 2021 and filed its Answer and Affirmative Defenses on November 12, 2021. On January 11, 2022 the Company issued discovery, and the discovery process remains ongoing. The Company disputes Abed’s claims and will defend the case vigorously. The Company remains confident in its position and no accrual for a potential loss has been made, after consultation with legal counsel.

 

Track Group Chile SpA. v. Republic of Chile. On January 24, 2022, Track Group Chile SpA. initiated a judicial action in the Court of Justice of Chile to settle a contract dispute with the Republic of Chile. The Company asserts that it has complied with its contractual obligations and that any delays in so doing were not attributable to the Company. The Company remains confident in its position and no accrual for a potential loss has been made, after consultation with legal counsel.
