STAAR SURGICAL COMPANY

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (CONTINUED)

 

 

Note 1 — Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company present the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows of STAAR Surgical Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Exchange Commission. In accordance with those rules and regulations certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the Comprehensive Financial Statements have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The Consolidated Balance Sheet as of January 1, 2021 was derived from the audited financial statements at that date, but does not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2021.

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The results of operations for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any other interim period or for the entire year.  

Each of the Company’s fiscal reporting periods ends on the Friday nearest to the quarter ending date and generally consists of 13 weeks.  Unless the context indicates otherwise “we,” “us,” the “Company,” and “STAAR” refer to STAAR Surgical Company and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Vendor Concentration

There was one vendor which accounted for over 11% and 10% of the Company’s consolidated accounts payable as of July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021, respectively.  There were no vendors who accounted for over 10% of the Company’s consolidated purchases for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, respectively.

Use of Estimates

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company believes it has used reasonable estimates and assumptions in determining valuation allowances for uncollectible trade receivables, sales returns reserves, obsolete and excess inventory reserves, deferred income taxes, and tax reserves, including valuation allowances for deferred tax assets, pension liabilities, evaluation of asset impairment, in determining the useful life of depreciable and definite-lived intangible assets, and in the variables and assumptions used to calculate and record stock-based compensation.  Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the Company offered extended payment terms to assist its surgeon customers and their clinics as they resumed business. Although the Company experienced some delays in payments on accounts receivable as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020, the Company experienced improvements since the third quarter of 2020 as elective refractive surgeries resumed.  The Company is unaware of any material impairment of customer receivables.  The Company’s sales representatives throughout the world remain engaged with customers conducting online training and other educational courses which have been very well attended.  This activity has given the Company insight into COVID-19’s impact on customers and potential impairment of receivables.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements and Recent Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

On January 1, 2021 (beginning of fiscal year 2021), the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019‑12, “Income Taxes (Topic 740):  Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes,” which removes the following exceptions:  exception to the incremental approach for intraperiod tax allocation; exception to accounting for basis differences when there are ownership changes in foreign investments; and exception to interim period tax accounting for year to date losses that exceed anticipated losses.  ASU 2019-12 also improves financial reporting for franchise taxes that are partially based on income; transactions with a government that result in a step up in the tax basis of goodwill; separate financial statements of legal entities that are not subject to tax; and enacted changes in tax laws in interim periods.  The adoption of ASU 2019-12 did not have a material impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 7 – Lines of Credit

Since 1998, the Company’s wholly owned Japanese subsidiary, STAAR Japan, has had an agreement with Mizuho Bank which provides for borrowings of up to 500,000,000 Yen, at an interest rate equal to the uncollateralized overnight call rate (approximately 0.06% as of July 2, 2021) plus a 0.50% spread, and may be renewed quarterly (the current line expires on August 21, 2021).  The credit facility is not collateralized.  The Company had 142,500,000 Yen outstanding on the line of credit as of July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021 (approximately $1,280,000 and $1,379,000 based on the foreign exchange rates on July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021, respectively), which approximates fair value due to the short-term maturity and market interest rates of the line of credit.  In case of default, the interest rate will be increased to 14% per annum.  There was 357,500,000 Yen available for borrowing as of July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021 (approximately $3,210,000 and $3,459,000 based on the foreign exchange rate on July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021, respectively).  At maturity on August 21, 2021, the Company expects to renew this line of credit for an additional three months, with similar terms.

In September 2013, the Company’s wholly owned Swiss subsidiary, STAAR Surgical AG, entered into a framework agreement for loans (“framework agreement”) with Credit Suisse (the “Bank”). The framework agreement provides for borrowings of up to 1,000,000 CHF (Swiss Francs) (approximately $1,100,000 at the rate of exchange on January 1, 2021), to be used for working capital purposes. Accrued interest and 0.25% commissions on average outstanding borrowings is payable quarterly and the interest rate will be determined by the Bank based on the then prevailing market conditions at the time of borrowing. The framework agreement is automatically renewed on an annual basis based on the same terms assuming there is no default. The framework agreement may be terminated by either party at any time in accordance with its general terms and conditions. The framework agreement is not collateralized and contains certain conditions such as providing the Bank with audited financial statements annually and notice of significant events or conditions, as defined in the framework agreement. The Bank may also declare all amounts outstanding to be immediately due and payable upon a change of control or a “material qualification” in STAAR Surgical independent auditors’ report, as defined. There were 0 borrowings outstanding as of January 1, 2021.  Given its immaterial nature and the Company’s existing cash resources, during the second quarter of 2021, the Company cancelled the framework agreement.

The Company is in compliance with covenants of its credit facilities and lines of credit as of July 2, 2021.

(602

The Company recorded income taxes of $2,148,000 and $3,395,000 for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021, respectively, due to pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions and a recapture of its U.S. valuation allowance of $845,000 as a result of increased tax deductions in the projection of taxable income used in its valuation assessment. The Company, from time to time may adjust the projections of taxable income as a result of current conditions.  The Company recorded income taxes of $556,000 for the three months ended July 3, 2020, due to pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions.  The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $602,000 for the six months ended July 3, 2020 due to a release of its U.S. valuation allowance of $1,369,000, as a result of the Company revising its global forecasts in response to the impacts of COVID‑19, and due to changes in the usage and release of certain deferred tax assets, offset by pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions.  The Company’s quarterly provision for income taxes is determined by estimating an annual effective tax rate.  This estimate may fluctuate throughout the year as new information becomes available affecting its underlying assumptions.  There are 0 unrecognized tax benefits related to uncertain tax positions taken by the Company.   All earnings from the Company’s subsidiaries are not considered to be permanently reinvested.

The 2017 Tax Act subjects a U.S. shareholder to tax on Global Intangible Low Tax Income (“GILTI”) earned by certain foreign subsidiaries.  In general, GILTI is the excess of a U.S. shareholder’s total net foreign income over a deemed return on tangible assets.  The provision further allows a deduction of 50 percent of GILTI, however this deduction is limited by the Company’s U.S. taxable income.  The Company has elected to account for GILTI as a current period expense when incurred.

STAAR SURGICAL COMPANY

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (CONTINUED)

 

Note 9 Income Taxes (Continued)

Final regulations issued on July 20, 2020 allow companies to exclude certain high-taxed income from their GILTI calculation (the GILTI high-tax exclusion).  The GILTI high-tax exclusion applies if the effective foreign tax rate is 90% or more of the rate that would apply if the income were subject to the maximum US rate of tax specified in section 11 (currently 18.9%, based on a maximum rate of 21%).  The final regulations also provide that the GILTI high-tax exclusion is an annual election made each year and is retroactive to years beginning after December 31, 2017.  The Company has made the election to exclude certain high-taxed income from its GILTI calculation for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, respectively.

The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon future generation of income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the projected future income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. Since January 1, 2021, the Company had three years of accumulated profits for federal and various state income tax purposes as a result of GILTI.  However, the three-year income position is not solely determinative and, accordingly, management considers all other available positive and negative evidence in its analysis. This includes existing profits in foreign jurisdiction as well as projected future profits. The “incremental cash tax savings approach” is further described in Notes 1 and 10 of the Company’s fiscal 2020 Form 10-K. Under the incremental cash tax savings approach, the Company’s cumulative valuation allowance recorded was $37,315,000 and $7,879,000 for federal and state, respectively, at July 2, 2021, and $34,681,000 and $7,399,000 for federal and state, respectively, at January 1, 2021.  Under the incremental cash tax savings approach, the valuation allowance recorded reflects the net operating losses and deferred tax assets which will not result in future cash tax savings and therefore provide no additional benefit.  Total U.S. net deferred tax assets were $3,025,000 and $3,870,000 as of July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021, respectively.

Incentive Plan

The Amended and Restated Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (“the Plan”) provides for various forms of stock-based incentives. To date, of the available forms of awards under the Plan, the Company has granted only stock options, restricted stock, unrestricted share grants, restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance stock units (“PSUs”). Options under the Plan are granted at fair market value on the date of grant, become exercisable generally over a three-year period, or as determined by the Board of Directors, and expire over periods not exceeding 10 years from the date of grant. Certain option and share awards provide for accelerated vesting if there is a change in control and pre-established financial metrics are met (as defined in the Plan). Grants of restricted stock outstanding under the Plan generally vest over periods of one to three years. Grants of RSUs and PSUs outstanding under the Plan generally vest based on service, performance, or a combination of both.  As of July 2, 2021, there were 3,038,928 shares available for grant under the Plan.

Assumptions

The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option valuation model applying the weighted-average assumptions noted in the following table.  Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected term of options granted is derived from the historical exercises and post-vesting cancellations and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding.  The Company has calculated an 6% estimated forfeiture rate based on historical forfeiture experience.  The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve corresponding to the expected term at the time of the grant.

Note 12 - Commitments and Contingencies

Litigation and Claims

From time to time, the Company is involved in various legal proceedings and other matters arising in the normal course of business.  These legal proceedings and other matters may relate to, among other things, contractual rights and obligations, employment matters, or claims of product liability.  STAAR maintains insurance coverage for various matters, including product liability and certain securities claims.  While the Company does not believe that any of the claims known is likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations, new claims or unexpected results of existing claims could lead to significant financial harm.

Employment Agreements

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer entered into an employment agreement with the Company, effective March 1, 2015. She and certain officers have as provisions of their agreements certain rights, including continuance of cash compensation and benefits, upon a “change in control,” which may include an acquisition of substantially all its assets, or termination “without cause or for good reason” as defined in the employment agreements.

Note 15 — COVID-19 and CARES Act Developments

 

In December 2019, COVID-19 surfaced and in March 2020, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic related to the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the world.  The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the businesses and the economy in the U.S. and the rest of the world is, and is expected to continue to be, uncertain and may continue to be significant. Accordingly, the Company cannot predict the extent to which its financial condition and results of operation will be affected. On March 17, 2020, the Company suspended most of its production and non-essential business locations where employees can work from home.  A very limited number of manufacturing personnel remained at work for critical late staged processes, until the end of March 2020.  Manufacturing resumed on April 27, 2020.  The Company’s revenues have been adversely impacted, and the Company experienced a substantial slowdown in sales beginning March 20, 2020 in global geographies characterized as “hot spots” for the COVID-19 virus, including parts of Europe, North America, Asia, the Middle East and India.  In certain of these markets, sales have paused as elective surgeries are discouraged to support COVID-19 related needs.  The Company expects decreases in sales in certain geographies to continue in 2021 as different geographies resume business activities on differing timelines.  

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act, among other things, includes provisions relating to refundable payroll tax credits, deferment of employer side social security payments, net operating loss carryback periods, alternative minimum tax credit refunds, modifications to the net interest deduction limitations, increased limitations on qualified charitable contributions, and technical corrections to tax depreciation methods for qualified improvement property.  The Company did not apply for or require financing available under the CARES Act and does not expect to do so.  The Company will continue to monitor the impact that the CARES Act may have on its business, financial condition, results of operations, or liquidity.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act (“CAA”) among other things, opened up another round of Paycheck Protection Program loans, expanding eligibility to small nonprofits, destination marking organizations, and housing cooperatives, provided additional funding for the Economic Injury Disaster Loans and grants, extends the Employee Retention Tax Credit, also extended and expanded Paid Sick and Family Leave Credits and the Employee Social Security tax deferral.  The Company will continue to monitor the impact that the CAA may have on its business, financial condition, results of operations, or liquidity.

ITEM 2.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The matters addressed in this Item 2 that are not historical information constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Readers can recognize forward-looking statements by the use of words like “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will,” “should,” “forecast” and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements about any of the following: any projections of or guidance as to earnings, revenue, sales, profit margins, expense rate, cash, effective tax rate, product mix, capital expense or any other financial items; the expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health measures (including but not limited to their impact on sales, operations or clinical trials globally), the plans, strategies, and objectives of management for future operations or prospects for achieving such plans; statements regarding new, existing, or improved products, including but not limited to, expectations for success of new, existing, and improved products in the U.S. or international markets or government approval of a new or improved products (including the EVO family of lenses in the U.S. and the EVO Viva family of lenses for presbyopia internationally); commercialization of new or improved products; future economic conditions or size of market opportunities; expected costs of operations; statements of belief, including as to achieving 2021 business plans; expected regulatory activities and approvals, product launches, and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, such statements are inherently subject to risks and we can give no assurance that our expectations will prove to be correct. Actual results could differ from those described in this report because of numerous factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include, without limitation, those described in in our Annual Report on Form 10-K in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” filed on February 24, 2021.  We undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements after the date of this report to reflect future events or circumstances or to reflect actual outcomes.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of STAAR, including the related notes, provided in this report.

Overview

STAAR Surgical Company designs, develops, manufactures, and sells implantable lenses for the eye and companion delivery systems used to deliver the lenses into the eye. We are the world’s leading manufacturer of intraocular lenses for patients seeking refractive vision correction, and we also make lenses for use in surgery to treat cataracts. All the lenses we make are foldable, which allows the surgeon to insert them into the eye through a small incision during minimally invasive surgery. Refractive surgery is performed to treat the type of visual disorders that have traditionally been corrected using eyeglasses or contact lenses. We refer to our lenses used in refractive surgery as “implantable Collamer® lenses” or “ICLs.” The field of refractive surgery includes both lens-based procedures, using products like our ICL family of products, and laser-based procedures like LASIK. Successful refractive surgery can correct common vision disorders such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Cataract surgery is a common outpatient procedure where the eye’s natural lens that has become cloudy with age is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL) to restore the patient’s vision. STAAR employs a commercialization strategy that strives for sustainable profitable growth. Our goal is to position our refractive lenses throughout the world as primary and premium solutions for patients seeking visual freedom from wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses while achieving excellent visual acuity through refractive vision correction. We position our IOL lenses used in surgery that treats cataracts based on quality and value.

 

Recent Developments

For the second quarter of 2021 STAAR’s net sales increased 77% over the prior year driven by 79% global ICL unit growth as markets continued to more fully reopen following COVID-19 related shutdowns and we continued to gain momentum towards realization of a lens-based future for refractive vision correction. Notable markets for ICL unit growth in the second quarter of 2021 included China, Japan, South Korea, APAC Distributor Markets, India, Spain, Germany, European Distributor Markets, the Middle East, and the U.S. In late April, the FDA received our clinical data for our EVO family of myopia lenses with the goal of bringing EVO to the U.S. market later this year. Our submission is currently under customary interactive FDA review. We are continuing the phased rollout of our EVO Viva lens, which is the presbyopia-correcting lens that received CE Mark approval in 2020.

18


 

While COVID-19 hotspots and government public health mandates may reoccur moving forward, we anticipate less business interruption and continued interest in our EVO ICL lens-based refractive solutions throughout 2021. Based on our first half 2021 financial results and with increasing visibility into key second half growth drivers for our business, we currently expect full year fiscal 2021 net sales to reach a range of $227 million to $230 million, up from our previously disclosed expectations for fiscal 2021 net sales of $215 million to $217 million.

Critical Accounting Policies

This Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations discusses and analyzes data in our unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements provided in this report, which we have prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Senior management has discussed the development, selection and disclosure of these estimates with the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors. Actual conditions may differ from our assumptions and actual results may differ from our estimates.

An accounting policy is deemed critical if it requires an accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain at the time the estimate is made, if different estimates reasonably could have been used, or if changes in the estimate that are reasonably likely to occur could materially impact the financial statements. Management believes that there have been no significant changes during the six months ended July 2, 2021 to the items that we disclosed as our critical accounting policies and estimates in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 1, 2021.

Net sales for the three months ended July 2, 2021 were $62.4 million, an increase of 77% from $35.2 million reported during the same period of 2020.  The increase in net sales was due to increased ICL sales of $28.5 million, partially offset by a decrease in other product sales of $1.3 million.  Changes in foreign currency favorably impacted net sales by $0.8 million.

Net sales for the six months ended July 2, 2021 were $113.1 million, an increase of 61% from $70.4 million reported during the same period of 2020.  The increase in net sales was due to increased ICL sales of $45.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in other product sales of $2.9 million.  Changes in foreign currency favorably impacted net sales by $1.9 million.

We recorded income taxes of $2.1 million and $3.4 million for the three and six months ended July 2, 2021, respectively, due to pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions and a recapture of our U.S. valuation allowance of $0.8 million as a result of increased tax deductions in the projection of taxable income used in our valuation assessment.  The Company, from time to time may adjust the projections of taxable income as a result of current conditions.  We recorded income taxes of $0.6 million for the three months ended July 3, 2020 due to pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions.  We recorded an income tax benefit of $0.6 million for the six months ended July 3, 2020 due to a release of our U.S. valuation allowance of $1.4 million, as a result of us revising our global forecasts in response to the impacts of COVID-19, and due to changes in the usage and release of certain deferred tax assets, offset by pre-tax income generated in certain foreign jurisdictions.

ASC 740 requires that a valuation allowance be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset may not be realizable.  The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon future generation of income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. We considered the projected future income, tax planning strategies and all other available evidence both positive and negative, as well as results of recent operations in making this assessment.  The “incremental cash tax savings approach” is further described in Notes 1 and 10 of the Company’s fiscal 2020 Form 10-K. Under the incremental cash tax savings approach, our cumulative valuation allowance recorded was $37.3 million and $7.9 million for federal and state, respectively, at July 2, 2021, and $34.7 million and $7.4 million for federal and state, respectively, at January 1, 2021.  Under the incremental cash tax savings approach, the valuation allowance recorded reflects the net operating losses and deferred tax assets which will not result in future cash tax savings and therefore provide no additional benefit.  Total U.S. net deferred tax assets were $3.0 million and $3.9 million as of July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021, respectively.  

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We believe that current cash, cash equivalents and future cash flow from operating activities will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs, including working capital needs, capital expenditures and contractual obligations for at least 12 months from the issuance date of the financial statements included in this quarterly report. Although we have experienced some delays in payments on accounts receivable as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020, this has improved since the third quarter of 2020 as our customers resume elective refractive surgery.  We are unaware of any impairment of assets resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Company did not apply for or require financing available under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security “CARES” Act and does not expect to do so given the strength of our balance sheet.  Our financial condition at July 2, 2021 and January 1, 2021 included the following (in millions):

Net cash provided by operating activities was $13.1 million for the six months ended July 2, 2021 compared to net cash used by operating activities of $8.2 million for the six months ended July 3, 2020.  Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended July 2, 2021, consisted of $13.6 million in net income, $11.5 in non-cash items, offset by $12.0 million in working-capital changes.  The increase in net cash provided by operating activities during the six months ended July 2, 2021 was due to increased non-cash items of $3.7 million, net working capital of $2.7 million and net income of $13.6 million for the six months ended July 2, 2021 compared to a net loss of $1.3 million for the six months ended July 3, 2020.

Net cash used in investing activities was $5.7 million and $4.2 million for the six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, respectively, and relate primarily to the acquisition of property, plant, and equipment.  

Net cash provided by financing activities was $13.8 million and $8.7 million for the six months ended July 2, 2021 and July 3, 2020, respectively.  Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended July 2, 2021 consisted of $14.1 million of proceeds from the exercise of stock options, partially offset by $0.3 million repayment of finance lease obligations.

Credit Facilities and Commitments

Lines of Credit and Leases

See Notes 7 and 8 of the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Covenant Compliance

The Company is in compliance with the covenants of its credit facilities as of July 2, 2021.

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer entered into an employment agreement with the Company, effective March 1, 2015.  She and certain officers have as provisions of their agreements certain rights, including continuance of cash compensation and benefits, upon a “change in control,” which may include an acquisition of substantially all of its assets, or termination “without cause or for good reason” as defined in the employment agreements.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, as that term is defined in the rules of the SEC, that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

ITEM 3.

QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

During the six months ended July 2, 2021, there have been no material changes in the Company’s qualitative and quantitative market risk since the disclosure in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2021.

ITEM 4.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our CEO and CFO, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the disclosure controls and procedures of the Company.  Based on that evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded, as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.  For purposes of this statement, the term “disclosure controls and procedures” means controls and other procedures of the Company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our management, including the CEO and the CFO, do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud or material errors. An internal control system, no

23


 

matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, 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. Because of the inherent limitations on all internal control systems, our internal control system can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving its objectives and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our Company 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. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of internal control is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in circumstances, or the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended July 2, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.

From time to time, the Company is involved in various legal proceedings and other matters arising in the normal course of business.  These legal proceedings and other matters may relate to, among other things, contractual rights and obligations, employment matters, or claims of product liability.  STAAR maintains insurance coverage for various matters, including product liability and certain securities claims.  While the Company does not believe that any of the claims known is likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations, new claims or unexpected results of existing claims could lead to significant financial harm.

ITEM 1A.

RISK FACTORS

Our short and long-term success is subject to many factors that are beyond our control. Investors and prospective investors should consider carefully information contained in this report and the risks and uncertainties described in “Part I—Item 1A—Risk Factors” of the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 1, 2021. Such risks and uncertainties could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results.
