Note 1 - The Company and Basis of Presentation

 

Business Overview

 

Where Food Comes From, Inc. is a Colorado corporation based in Castle Rock, Colorado (“WFCF”, the “Company,” “our,” “we,” or “us”). We are an independent, third-party food verification company conducting both on-site and desk audits to verify that claims being made about livestock, food, other high-value specialty crops and agricultural products are accurate. We care about food and other agricultural products, how it is grown and raised, the quality of what we eat, what farmers and ranchers do, and authentically telling that story to the consumer. Our team visits farms and ranches and looks at their plants, animals, and records, and compares the information we collect to specific standards or claims that farms and ranches want to make about how they are producing food. We strive to ensure that everyone involved in the food business - from growers and farmers to retailers and shoppers – can count on WFCF to provide authentic and transparent information about the food we eat and how, where, and by whom it is produced.

 

We also provide sustainability programs, compliance management and farming information management solutions to drive sustainable value creation. We employ a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) revenue model that bundles annual software licenses with ongoing software enhancements and upgrades and a wide range of professional services that generate incremental revenue specific to the food and agricultural industry. Finally, the Company’s Where Food Comes From Source Verified® retail and restaurant labeling program utilizes the verification of product attributes to connect consumers directly to the source of the food they purchase through product labeling and web-based information sharing and education.

 

Most of our customers are located throughout the United States.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Our unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and include the results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Where Food Comes From, Inc. and its subsidiaries, Where Food Comes From Organic, Inc. (“WFCFO”), Validus Verifications Services, LLC (“Validus”), Sterling Solutions (“Sterling”), SureHarvest Services, Inc. (“SureHarvest”), A Bee Organic, Sow Organic, JVF Consulting and Postelsia Holdings, Ltd. (“Postelsia”) (collectively referred to as “we,” “us,” and “our” throughout this Form 10-Q). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues, costs and expenses during the reporting period. All significant intercompany transactions and amounts have been eliminated. The results of businesses acquired are included in the consolidated financial statements from the date of the acquisition. Actual results could differ from the estimates.

 

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and footnotes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in our Form 10-K filed on February 18, 2021. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. However, we believe that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year presentation. Net loss and shareholders’ equity were not affected by these reclassifications. The financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting primarily of normal recurring adjustments) that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position and results of operations. The consolidated operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period of any future year.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

Except as specifically indicated, all information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q has been retroactively adjusted to give effect to a 1-for-4 reverse stock split that was effective on December 1, 2020.

 

Seasonality

 

Our business is subject to seasonal fluctuations. Significant portions of our verification and certification service revenue are typically realized during late May through early October when the calf marketings and the growing seasons are at their peak. Because of the seasonality of the business and our industry, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for any other quarter or for the full fiscal year.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification is the sole source of authoritative GAAP other than SEC issued rules and regulations that apply only to SEC registrants. The FASB issues an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) to communicate changes to the codification. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all ASU’s. ASU’s not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 2 – Basic and Diluted Net Income / (Loss) per Share

 

Basic net income / (loss) per share was computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and restricted stock awards are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period.

 

The following is a reconciliation of the share data used in the basic and diluted income / (loss) per share computations (amounts in thousands):

 

  Three months ended March 31, 
(in thousands)  2021  2020 
Basic:        
Weighted average shares outstanding  6,136   6,237 
         
Diluted:        
Weighted average shares outstanding  6,136   6,237 
Weighted average effects of dilutive securities  95   - 
Total  6,231   6,237 
         
Antidilutive securities:  -   52 

 

The effect of the inclusion of the antidilutive shares would have resulted in an increase in earnings per share. Accordingly, the weighted average shares outstanding have not been adjusted for antidilutive shares.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), the initiative provides federally guaranteed loans to small businesses. These loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward. The Company received notification the loan and accrued interest was forgiven on March 4, 2021.

 

Unison Revolving Line of Credit

 

The Company has a revolving line of credit (“LOC”) agreement which matures April 12, 2022. The LOC provides for $75,080 in working capital. The interest rate is at the Wall Street Journal prime rate plus 1.50% and is adjusted daily. Principal and interest are payable upon demand, but if demand is not made, then annual payments of accrued interest only are due, with the principal balance due on maturity. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the effective interest rate for both periods was 4.75%. The LOC is collateralized by all the business assets of ICS. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, there were no amounts outstanding under this LOC.

 

Note 7 – Stock-Based Compensation

 

In addition to cash compensation, the Company may compensate certain service providers, including employees, directors, consultants, and other advisors, with equity-based compensation in the form of stock options and restricted stock awards. The Company recognizes all equity-based compensation as stock-based compensation expense based on the fair value of the compensation measured at the grant date. For stock options, fair value is calculated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model. For restricted stock awards, fair value is the closing stock price for the Company’s common stock on the grant date. The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the grant. For the periods presented, all stock-based compensation expense was classified as a component within selling, general and administrative expense in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.

 

The amount of stock-based compensation expense is as follows (amounts in thousands):

 

  Three months ended March 31, 
  2021  2020 
Stock options $24  $30 
Restricted stock awards  1   1 
Total $25  $31 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, no stock options were awarded. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company awarded stock options to purchase 5,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $7.24 per share to employees of the Company (all share and dollar amounts have been adjusted to reflect the 1-for-4 reverse split that occurred in December 2020).

Equity Incentive Plans

 

Our 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”) and 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan,” and together with the 2006 Plan, the “Plans”) provide for the issuance of stock-based awards to employees, officers, directors and consultants. The Plans permit the granting of stock awards and stock options. The vesting of stock-based awards is generally subject to the passage of time and continued employment through the vesting period.

Note 8 – Income Taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities have been determined based upon the differences between the financial statement amounts and the tax bases of assets and liabilities as measured by enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when these differences are expected to reverse. In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The provision or benefit for income taxes is recorded at the end of each interim period based on the Company’s best estimate of its effective income tax rate expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 we recorded an income tax expense of approximately $11,000, compared to income tax benefit of $80,000 for the same 2020 period. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 is favorably impacted by the non-taxability of the PPP loan forgiveness income.

Note 9 - Revenue Recognition

 

Disaggregation of Revenue

 

We have identified four material revenue categories in our business: (i) verification and certification service revenue, (ii) product sales, (iii) software license, maintenance and support services revenue and (iv) software-related consulting service revenue.

 

Revenue attributable to each of our identified revenue categories is disaggregated in the table below (amounts in thousands).

Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal proceedings

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various legal actions, administrative proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of business. We generally record losses for claims in excess of the limits of purchased insurance in earnings at the time and to the extent they are probable and estimable.

 

Note 12 - Segments

 

With each acquisition, we assess the need to disclose discrete information related to our operating segments. Because of the similarities of certain of our acquisitions that provide certification and verification services, we aggregate operations into one verification and certification reportable segment. The operating segments included in the aggregated verification and certification segment include IMI Global, WFCFO and Validus. The factors considered in determining this aggregated reporting segment include the economic similarity of the businesses, the nature of services provided, production processes, types of customers and distribution methods.

 

The Company also determined that it has a software sales and related consulting reportable segment. SureHarvest, which includes Postelsia, is the sole operating segment under the software sales and related consulting reportable segment. This segment includes software license, maintenance, support and software-related consulting service revenues.

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

 

General

 

This information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes included in Item 1 of Part I of this Quarterly Report and the audited consolidated financial statements and notes, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, contained in the Form 10−K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. The following discussion and analysis includes historical and certain forward−looking information that should be read together with the accompanying consolidated financial statements, related footnotes and the discussion below of certain risks and uncertainties that could cause future operating results to differ materially from historical results or from the expected results indicated by forward−looking statements.

 

Business Overview

 

Where Food Comes From, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“WFCF,” the “Company,” “our,” “we,” or “us”) is a leading trusted resource for third-party verification of food production practices in North America. The Company supports more than 15,000 farmers, ranchers, vineyards, wineries, processors, retailers, distributors, trade associations, consumer brands and restaurants with a wide variety of value-added services provided through its family of verifiers, including IMI Global, WFCFO, Validus Verification Services, Sterling Solutions, and A Bee Organic. In order to have credibility, product claims such as gluten-free, non-GMO, non-hormone treated, humane handling, and others require verification by an independent third-party such as WFCF. The Company’s principal business is conducting both on-site and desk audits to verify that claims being made about livestock, crops and other food products are accurate.

 

Through our more recent acquisitions, including SureHarvest Services LLC; Sow Organic, LLC; and Postelsia Holdings, Ltd. (“Postelsia”), we provide sustainability programs, compliance management and farming information management solutions to drive sustainable value creation. We employ a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) revenue model that bundles annual software licenses with ongoing software enhancements and upgrades and a wide range of professional services that generate incremental revenue specific to the food and agricultural industry.

 

Finally, the Company’s Where Food Comes From Source Verified® retail and restaurant labeling program utilizes the verification of product attributes to connect consumers directly to the source of the food they purchase through product labeling and web-based information sharing and education. With the use of Quick Response Code (“QR”) technology, consumers can instantly access information about the producers behind their food.

 

WFCF was founded in 1996 and incorporated in the state of Colorado as a subchapter C corporation in 2006. The Company’s shares of common stock trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the stock ticker symbol, “WFCF.”

 

The Company’s original name – Integrated Management Information, Inc. (d.b.a. IMI Global) – was changed to Where Food Comes From, Inc. in 2012 to better reflect the Company’s mission. Early growth was attributable to source and age verification services for beef producers that wanted access to markets overseas following the discovery of “mad cow” disease in the U.S. Over the years, WFCF has expanded its portfolio to include verification and software services for most food groups and over 50 programs and organizations. This growth has been achieved both organically and through the acquisition of other companies.

 

Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) as a pandemic. The recent global outbreak of COVID-19 and the resulting government-mandated closures and social distancing measures have disrupted economic markets, potentially triggering a global recession. Continued closures and social distancing measures could have a detrimental effect in which the prolonged economic impact is uncertain. This could result in a variety of risks to our business including the inability to perform audits at our customers locations due to social distancing, supplier disruptions as a result of business closures, food systems that are in disarray resulting in global food shortages, euthanasia of animals and dumping of dairy products because farmers have no distribution channel, all of which could negatively influence our revenue and costs. The government may introduce healthcare reform measures for which we cannot predict the financial implication of on our business. A weak or declining economy could cause our customers to delay purchases or payments for our services and products. Additionally, COVID-19 may introduce additional challenges including our ability to produce sufficient cash flows from operations or to raise capital when needed at acceptable terms, if at all.

 

17
 

 

All of our locations have been affected. We have adjusted certain aspects of our operations to protect our employees while avoiding business interruption. As an essential business to the food and agriculture industries, we have maintained standard business operations while under stay at home (and similar) guidelines from various states, by allowing a majority of employees to work remotely until government mandates allow for normal business operations. Employees essential to operations, management and the accounting function remain on-site at our corporate headquarters. Internal controls over financial reporting have not been impacted by employees working remotely. Management is continuously monitoring to ensure controls are effective and properly maintained.

 

The Company generally performs onsite audits in connection with its verification and certification activity. Due to safety and social distancing reasons, some customers have requested postponement of onsite visits. At this time, we are uncertain of the material impact that continued social distancing measures will have upon our business. We continue to work with standard setting bodies and identify innovative solutions to offer our customers. We believe that our transformative approach will help further differentiate us from competitors. Additionally, we believe third party verification is an essential component to the food and agricultural supply chain and ensures our future as a high quality provider of assurance services, thereby increasing the value of products in the food supply chain.

 

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and react accordingly to any future restrictions or limitations, while keeping the interest of our customers and business in mind. Due to the uncertainty in the severity and duration of the pandemic, the impact on our revenues, profitability and statement of financial position is uncertain at this time.

 

Seasonality

 

Our business is subject to seasonal fluctuations. Significant portions of our verification and certification service revenue are typically realized during late May through early October when the calf marketings and the growing seasons are at their peak. Because of the seasonality of the business and our industry, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for any other quarter or for the full fiscal year.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At March 31, 2021, we had cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposits (classified as short-term and long-term investments) of approximately $5.0 million compared to approximately $4.4 million at December 31, 2020. Our working capital at March 31, 2021 was approximately $4.6 million compared to $4.4 million at December 31, 2020.

 

Net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $1.2 million compared to $0.9 million during the same period in 2020. Net cash provided by operating activities is driven by our net income and adjusted by non-cash items. Non-cash adjustments primarily include depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program loan, and deferred taxes. Fluctuations are primarily due to operating performance offset by the timing of cash receipts and cash disbursements. The increase in cash provided by operating activities for the periods ending March 31, 2021 and 2020 was primarily driven by a change in accounts receivable, accounts payable and deferred revenue.

 

Net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021, was approximately $0.2 million compared to $0.4 million in the 2020 period. Net cash used in the period ending March 31, 2021 was primarily for the further development of internal use software. Net cash used in the March 31, 2020 period was primarily attributable to acquisition of Postelsia Holdings, Ltd for $0.3 million.

 

18
 

 

Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $0.4 million compared to $0.2 million in the 2020 period. Cash used for the period ending March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, was primarily due to the repurchase of common shares under the Stock Buyback Plan.

 

The primary driver of our operating cash flow is our third-party verification solutions, specifically the gross margin generated from services provided. Therefore, we focus on the elements of those operations, including revenue growth and long-term projects that ensure a steady stream of operating profits to enable us to meet our cash obligations. On a weekly basis, we review the performance of each of our revenue streams focusing on third-party verification solutions compared with prior periods and our operating plan. We believe that our various sources of capital, including cash flow from operating activities, overall improvement in our performance, and our ability to obtain additional financing, are adequate to finance current operations as well as the repayment of current debt obligations. We are not aware of any other event or trend that would negatively affect our liquidity. In the event such a trend develops, we believe that there are sufficient financing avenues available to us and from our internal cash-generating capabilities to adequately manage our ongoing business.

 

The culmination of all our efforts has brought significant opportunities to us, including increased investor confidence and renewed interest in our company, as well as the potential to develop business relationships with long-term strategic partners. In keeping with our core business, we will continue to review our business model with a focus on profitability, long-term capital solutions and the potential impact of acquisitions or divestitures, if such an opportunity arises.

 

Our plan for continued growth is primarily based on diversification in our product offerings within national and international markets, as well as, potential acquisitions. We believe that there are significant growth opportunities available to us because of growing consumer awareness and demand on a national level. Internationally, a quality verification program is often the only way to overcome import or export restrictions.

 

Debt Facility

 

The Company has a revolving line of credit (“LOC”) agreement which matures April 12, 2022. The LOC provides for $75,080 in working capital. The interest rate is at the Wall Street Journal prime rate plus 1.50% and is adjusted daily. Principal and interest are payable upon demand, but if demand is not made, then annual payments of accrued interest only are due, with the principal balance due upon maturity. As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, the effective interest rate was 4.75% and 4.75%, respectively. The LOC is collateralized by all the business assets of Where Food Comes From Organic, Inc. (“WFCFO”). As of March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, there were no amounts outstanding under this LOC.

 

On April 17, 2020, the Company received a $1.0 million loan under the PPP with a maturity date of April 17, 2022 and an annual interest rate of 1.00%. The Company received notification the loan and accrued interest amount was forgiven on March 4, 2021.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements of any type.

Verification and Certification Segment

 

Verification and certification service revenues consist of fees charged for verification audits and other verification and certification related services that the Company performs for customers. Fees earned from our WFCF labeling program are also included in our verification and certification revenues as it represents a value-added extension of our source verification. Verification and certification service revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased 16.4% compared to 2020, primarily due to increased customer demand for our product offerings.

 

Our product sales are an ancillary part of our verification and certification services and represent sales of cattle identification ear tags. Product sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were relatively flat compared to the same period in 2020.

 

Costs of revenues for our verification and certification segment for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were approximately $1.8 million compared to approximately $1.5 million for the same period in 2020. Gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was 43.6% compared to 37.2% (including eliminations) in 2020 primarily due to larger revenue base and the three months ended March 31, 2020 revenue base was negatively impacted due to COVID-19. Our margins are generally impacted by various costs such as cost of products, salaries and benefits, insurance, and taxes.

 

Other operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 slightly decreased by approximately 3.8% compared to the same three month period in 2020. Depreciation and amortization for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased 71.6% compared to the same three month period in 2020. The increase in depreciation and amortization is predominately from shifting certain assets and personnel from SureHarvest to WFCF in 2020 to better support the entire Company.

Software Sales and Related Consulting Segment

 

Software license, maintenance and support services revenue is a revenue stream specific to our acquisitions of SureHarvest and Postelsia. We employ a SaaS revenue model that bundles annual software licenses with ongoing software enhancements and upgrades and a wide range of professional services that generate incremental revenue specific to the food and agricultural industry. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, software license, maintenance and support services revenue was relatively flat compared 2020 (including eliminations).

 

Software-related consulting service revenue primarily represents fees earned from professional appearances, customer education and training related services. Software-related consulting service revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased approximately 26.8% compared to the same period in 2020 (including eliminations). The three month increase is due to fluctuations in customer demand for consulting services.

 

Costs of revenues for our software sales and related consulting segment for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020 was approximately $0.3 million. Gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased to 27.6% compared to 23.7% (including eliminations) for the same period in 2020. The three month increase in gross margin is due to the increase in billable hours of staff focused on software enhancements and upgrades.

 

Other operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased approximately 52.3% compared to the same period in 2020 (including eliminations). Depreciation and amortization for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased 65.1% compared to the same three month period in 2020. The decrease is predominately due to the decrease in depreciation, amortization and personnel costs from shifting certain assets and personnel from SureHarvest to WFCF in 2020 to better support the entire Company.

 

As with all of our acquisitions, we continue to identify synergies and implement best practices. We focus our efforts to create value in various ways such as improving the performance of our acquired businesses, removing excess capacity, creating market access for products, acquiring skills and technologies more quickly or at a lower cost than we can build in-house, exploiting our industry-specific scalability and bundling opportunities, and picking winners early and helping them develop their businesses. Achieving any or all of these strategies take time to implement. We have learned that it can take two to three years after an acquisition to fully understand the complexities, at which time, we have seen solid improvements in revenues and/or costs.

 

Dividend Income from Progressive Beef

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, the Company received dividend income of $30,000 from Progressive Beef representing a distribution of their earnings.

 

Income Tax Expense

 

The provision for income taxes is recorded at the end of each interim period based on the Company’s best estimate of its effective income tax rate expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recorded income tax expense of approximately $11,000 compared to income tax benefit of $80,000 for the same period in 2020. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 is favorably impacted by the non-taxability of the PPP loan forgiveness income.

 

Net Income and Per Share Information

 

As a result of the foregoing, net income attributable to WFCF shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $1.2 million and $0.19 per basic and diluted common share, respectively, compared to net loss of approximately $0.2 million and ($0.04) per basic and diluted common share for the same period in 2020.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, including our principal executive and financial officers, have conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act, to ensure that information we are required to disclose in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information we are required to disclose in such reports is accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive and financial officers, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our principal executive and financial officers concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report. We believe that the financial statements included in this report fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements and can only provide reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

There have not been any other changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

We are not aware of any significant legal actions at this time.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Our business is subject to a number of risks, including those identified in Item 1A. — “Risk Factors” of our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10−K, that could have a material effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and/or liquidity and that could cause our operating results to vary significantly from period to period. As of March 31, 2021, the Company recognizes the coronavirus pandemic may have an economic impact on the Company, but management does not know and cannot estimate what the financial impact may be. We may also disclose changes to such factors or disclose additional factors from time to time in our future filings with the SEC.
