BUTLER NATIONAL CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(dollars in thousands, except per share data)

(unaudited)

 

 

1. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X and do not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. Therefore, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2020. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 are not indicative of the results of operations that may be expected for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2021.

 

Certain reclassifications within the condensed financial statement captions have been made to maintain consistency in presentation between years. These reclassifications have no impact on the reported results of operations. Financial amounts are in thousands of dollars except per share amounts.

 

 

2. Net Income Per Share: Butler National Corporation (“the Company”) follows ASC 260 that requires the reporting of both basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. In accordance with ASC 260, any anti-dilutive effects on net earnings per share would be excluded. The number of potential common shares as of January 31, 2021 is 74,033,347.

 

 

3. Revenue Recognition: ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”

 

Under ASC 606, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised services in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to receive in exchange for those services. To achieve this core principal, the Company applies the following five steps:

 

 

1)

Identify the contract, or contracts, with a customer

 

 

A contract with a customer exists when (i) the Company enters into an enforceable contract with a customer that defines each party’s rights regarding the services to be transferred and identifies the payment terms related to these services, (ii) the contract has commercial substance and (iii) the Company determines that collection of substantially all consideration for services that are transferred is probable based on the customer’s intent and ability to pay the promised consideration.

 

 

2)

Identification of the performance obligations in the contract

 

 

At contract inception, an entity shall assess the goods or services promised in a contract with a customer and shall identify as a performance obligation each promise to transfer to the customer. Performance obligations promised in a contract are identified based on the services that will be transferred to the customer that are both capable of being distinct, whereby the customer can benefit from the service either on its own or together with other resources that are readily available from third parties or from the Company, and are distinct in the context of the contract, whereby the transfer of the services is separately identifiable from other promises in the contract. To the extent a contract includes multiple promised services, the Company must apply judgment to determine whether promised services are capable of being distinct and distinct in the context of the contract. If these criteria are not met the promised services are accounted for as a combined performance obligation.

 

 

3)

Determination of the transaction price

 

 

The transaction price is the amount that an entity allocates to the performance obligations identified in the contract and, therefore, represents the amount of revenue recognized as those performance obligations are satisfied. The transaction price is the amount of consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring promised goods or services to a customer.

 

 

4)

Allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract

 

 

Once a contract and associated performance obligations have been identified and the transaction price has been determined, ASC 606 requires an entity to allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation identified. This is generally done in proportion to the standalone selling prices of each performance obligation (i.e., on a relative standalone selling price basis). As a result, any discount within the contract generally is allocated proportionally to all of the separate performance obligations in the contract. The Company is applying the right to invoice practical expedient to recognize revenue. As a result, the entity bypasses the steps of determining the transaction price, allocating that transaction price and determining when to recognize revenue as it will recognize revenue as billed by multiplying the price assigned to the good or service, by the units.

 

 

 

5)

Recognition of revenue when, or as, we satisfy a performance obligation

 

 

Revenue is recognized when or as performance obligations are satisfied by transferring control of a promised good or service to a customer. Control transfers either over time or at a point in time. Revenue is recognized when control of the promised services is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those services.

 

 

Aircraft modifications are performed under fixed-price contracts. Revenue from fixed-priced contracts are recognized on the percentage-of-completion method, measured by the direct labor incurred compared to total estimated direct labor.

 

 

Revenue from Avionics products are recognized when shipped. Payment for these Avionics products is due within 30 days of the invoice date after shipment. Revenue from Gaming Management and other Corporate/Professional Services is recognized as the service is rendered.

 

 

Regarding warranties and returns, our products are special order and are not suitable for return. Our products are unique upon installation and tested prior to their release to the customer and acceptance by the customer. In the rare event of a warranty claim, the claim is processed through the normal course of business and may include additional charges to the customer. In our opinion, any future warranty work would not be material to the consolidated financial statements.

 

 

Gaming revenue is the gross gaming win as reported by the Kansas Lottery casino reporting systems, less the mandated payments by and for the State of Kansas. Electronic games-slots and table games revenue is the aggregate of gaming wins and losses. Liabilities are recognized for chips and "ticket-in, ticket-out" coupons in the customers' possession, and for accruals related to anticipated payout of progressive jackpots. Progressive gaming machines, which contain base jackpots that increase at a progressive rate based on the number of coins played, are deducted from revenue as the value of jackpots increase. Food, beverage, and other revenue is recorded when the service is received and paid.

 

 

4. Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Future events and their effects cannot be determined with certainty. Therefore, the determination of estimates requires the exercise of judgment. Actual results could differ from those estimates, and any such differences may be material to our consolidated financial statements. Significant estimates include assumptions about percentage-of-completion, collection of accounts receivable, the valuation, and recognition of stock-based compensation expense, valuation for deferred tax assets and useful life of fixed assets.

 

 

5. Inventories: Inventories are priced at the lower of cost, determined on a first-in, first-out basis, or net realizable value. Inventories include material, labor and factory overhead required in the production of our products.

 

Inventory obsolescence is examined on a regular basis. When determining our estimate of obsolescence, we consider inventory that has been inactive for five years or longer and the probability of using that inventory in future production. The obsolete inventory generally consists of Falcon and Learjet parts and electrical components.  At January 31, 2021 and April 30, 2020, the estimate of obsolete inventory was $685 and $685 respectively.

 

 

6. Research and Development: We invested in research and development activities. The amount invested in the nine months ended January 31, 2021 and 2020 was $2,552 and $1,701 respectively.

 

 

7. Debt: At January 31, 2021, the Company was utilizing a promissory note in the form of a line of credit totaling $5,000. The unused line at January 31, 2021 was $5,000. The interest rate on this promissory note is 3.65%. The line of credit is due on demand and is collateralized by the first and second positions on all assets of the Company.

 

At January 31, 2021, there was one note collateralized by all of BHCMC's assets and compensation due under the State Management contract with a balance of $34,531. The interest rate on this note is 5.32%. This note matures in December 2027, with a balloon payment of $19,250.

 

At January 31, 2021, there was one note collateralized by all of BHCMC's assets and compensation due under the State Management contract with a balance of $6,819. The interest rate on this note is 5.83%. This note matures in December 2025.

 

At January 31, 2021, there was one note with an interest rate of 6.25% collateralized by aircraft security agreements totaling $1,284. This note was used for the purchase and modifications of collateralized aircraft. This note matures in January 2023.

 

At January 31, 2021, there is one note totaling $207 collateralized by real estate in Dodge City, Kansas. The interest rate on this note is 6.25%. This note matures in June 2024.

At January 31, 2021, there is a note payable collateralized by real estate with a balance of $599. The interest rate on this note is at LIBOR plus 1.75%. This note matures in March 2029.

 

BHCMC arranged to acquire additional gaming machines for ownership by the Kansas Lottery. The balance of these financed payables is $96.

 

In May 2020, the Company received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for $2,001. Funds from the loan may only be used for payroll costs, costs to continue group health care benefits, rent and utilities. The loan and accrued interest are forgivable as long as the borrower uses the proceeds for eligible purposes. The unforgiven portion of the PPP loan is payable over two years at an interest rate of 1%, with a deferral of payments for the first six months. The Company used the entire loan amount for qualifying expenses.  The Company has applied for forgiveness of this loan and is awaiting determination. While the Company currently believes that its use of the loan proceeds will meet the conditions for forgiveness of the loan, we cannot assure if and when a portion or all of the loan will be forgiven.

 

We are not in default of any of our notes as of January 31, 2021.

 

We believe that our current banks will provide the necessary capital for our business operations. However, we continue to maintain contact with other banks that have an interest in funding our working capital needs to continue our growth in operations in 2021 and beyond.

    

 

 

8. Other Assets: Our other asset account includes assets of $5,500 related to the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act Management Contract privilege fee, $5,927 of gaming equipment we were required to pay for ownership by the State of Kansas Lottery, JET autopilot intellectual property of $1,417 and miscellaneous other assets of $914. BHCMC expects the $5,500 privilege fee to have a value over the remaining life of the initial Management Contract with the State of Kansas which will end in December 2024. The State of Kansas approved a renewal management contract and an amendment to the current management contract for our Professional Services company BNSC via BHCMC. The renewal will take effect December 15, 2024, and continue to 2039, another 15 years. The Managers Certificate asset for use of gaming equipment is being amortized over a period of three years based on the estimated useful life of gaming equipment. The JET intellectual property is being amortized over a period of fifteen years.

12. Boot Hill Casino Building and Land Purchase:

 

On December 19, 2020, we completed the purchase of our Boot Hill Casino located in Dodge City, Kansas, for a purchase price of $41,250, and was funded with two secured bank long-term loans totaling $42,000. We incurred direct financing costs of approximately $400. Prior to our purchase, we were leasing the property under an operating lease. We had recorded a right-of-use asset and the related lease liability upon the adoption ASC 842, Leases, on May 1, 2019. Pursuant to ASC 805-50, Asset Acquisition, the cost was allocated to land, building and improvements, based on the relative fair values. Furthermore, pursuant to ASC 842-20-40-2, Leases – Purchase of Underlying Asset, the difference between the purchase price and the carrying amount of the lease liability immediately before the purchase was recorded by us as the lessee as an adjustment of approximately $2,628 to the carrying amount of the assets.

13. COVID-19 Overview:

 

The pandemic caused by the disease COVID-19 has resulted in federal, state and local governments around the world implementing stringent measures to help control the spread of the virus, including quarantines, “shelter in place” and “stay at home” orders, travel restrictions or bans, business curtailments, school closures, and other protective measures.

 

Our aerospace segment qualified as “essential” under applicable federal guidance and state orders. The facilities have continued operations. We are enforcing social distancing and enhanced health, safety and sanitization measures in accordance with guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (the “CDC”).


We have also implemented necessary procedures and support to enable a significant portion of our Olathe headquarters personnel to work remotely. 


Our professional services operations at the Boot Hill Casino & Resort was forced to close from March 18, 2020 thru May 21, 2020. The casino reopened to the public on May 22, 2020, with reduced hours to allow for extra time for cleaning and sanitizing in accordance with CDC guidelines and a limited number of games and food offerings. While we have returned to normal hours, we are continuing to emphasize social distancing throughout the casino. Since reopening the Boot Hill Casino & Resort we have experienced lower customer headcount, which has been partially off-set by a larger net revenue per customer. We are experiencing, and expect to continue experiencing, lower demand for our professional services and increased costs and other challenges related to COVID-19 that adversely affects our business.

 

BHCMC, LLC, a subsidiary in the professional services segment, received a loan in the principal amount of $2.0 million (the “SBA Loan”) under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), which was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The intent and purpose of the PPP is to support companies during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing funds for certain specified business expenses, with a focus on payroll. We have used the proceeds from the SBA Loan to maintain our payroll and retain casino staff. With the assistance of the SBA Loan, we believe we have sufficient liquidity at this time to maintain our business operations during this difficult time.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted our business operations and financial results beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and continues to impact us in fiscal 2021. We face numerous uncertainties in estimating the direct and indirect effects on our present and future business operations, financial condition, results of operations, and liquidity. Due to several rapidly changing variables related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot reasonably estimate future economic trends and the timing of when stability will return.

Furthermore, the Company has a policy against issuing or confirming financial forecasts or projections issued by others. Thus, to the extent that reports issued by securities analysts contain any projections, forecasts or opinions, such reports are not the responsibility of Butler National Corporation.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

  

We believe that there are several accounting policies that are critical to understanding our historical and future performance, as these policies affect the reported amount of revenue and other significant areas involving management judgments and estimates. These significant accounting policies relate to revenue recognition, the use of estimates, long-lived assets, and Supplemental Type Certificates. These policies and our procedures related to these policies are described in detail below and under specific areas within this "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

 

Revenue Recognition: See footnote 3 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Lease Right-to-Use: See footnote 11 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Future events and their effects cannot be determined with certainty. Therefore, the determination of estimates requires the exercise of judgment. Actual results could differ from those estimates, and any such differences may be material to our financial statements. Significant estimates include assumptions about percentage-of-completion, collection of accounts receivable, inventory obsolescence, the valuation of long-lived assets, including the STC’s, valuation for deferred tax assets and useful life of fixed and other long-term assets.

  

Long-lived Assets: The Company accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with ASC Topic 360-10, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets." ASC Topic 360-10 requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value of an asset by estimating the future net cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset's carrying value and fair value or disposable value.

  

Supplemental Type Certificates: Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) are authorizations granted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for specific modification of a certain aircraft. The STC authorizes us to perform modifications, installations, and assemblies on applicable customer-owned aircraft. Costs incurred to obtain STCs are capitalized and subsequently amortized over a seven year life. The legal life of an STC is indefinite.

    

Changing Prices and Inflation

  

We have experienced upward pressure from inflation in fiscal year 2021. From fiscal year 2020 to fiscal year 2021 most of the increases we experienced were in material costs. This additional cost may not be transferable to our customers resulting in lower income in the future. We anticipate fuel costs and possibly interest rates to rise in fiscal 2021 and 2022.

  

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Item 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information required under this item.

  

 

Item 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

  

We maintain a set of disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms. Our principal executive and financial officers have evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report on Form 10-Q and have determined that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective, based on criteria in the Internal Control-Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO").

  

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures: Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) under the Exchange Act are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

  

In connection with the preparation of this Form 10-Q, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of January 31, 2021. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of January 31, 2021.

  

Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Limitations on Controls

 

Our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system's objectives will be met. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Further, because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

  

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting: In our opinion there were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the nine months ended January 31, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, its internal control over financial reporting.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

 

As of January 31, 2021, there are no significant known legal proceedings pending against us. We consider all such unknown proceedings, if any, to be ordinary litigation incident to the character of the business. We believe that the resolution of any claims will not, individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on the financial position, results of operations, or liquidity of the Company.
