NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2019

 

Note 1 Unaudited Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. It is suggested that these condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s April 30, 2019 annual report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation, have been included. Operating results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other quarter or for the full year.

 

Accounting Estimates—The preparation of these financial statements requires the use of estimates and assumptions including the carrying value of assets. The estimates and assumptions result in approximate rather than exact amounts.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements — In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”), which provides guidance for accounting for leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to classify leases as either finance or operating leases and to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term greater than 12 months regardless of the lease classification. The lease classification will determine whether the lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest rate method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Accounting for lessors remains largely unchanged from current GAAP. ASU 2016-02 is effective for the Company beginning May 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-10 “Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases” (“ASU 2018-10”) and ASU No. 2018-11 “Leases (Topic 842) Targeted Improvements” (“ASU 2018-11”) and ASU 2018-20, “Narrow-Scope Improvements for Lessors”. ASU 2018-10 provides certain amendments that affect narrow aspects of the guidance issued in ASU 2016-02. ASU 2018-11 allows all entities adopting ASU 2016-02 to choose an additional (and optional) transition method of adoption, under which an entity initially applies the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognizes a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. ASU 2018-11 also allows lessors to not separate non-lease components from the associated lease component if certain conditions are met. During the first quarter of 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-01, Leases (Topic 842) to amend ASU 2016-02. This amendment exempts both lessees and lessors from having to provide certain prior year interim disclosure information in the fiscal year in which a company adopts the new leases standard. The Company has adopted the ASUs in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 and the Company’s accounting systems have been upgraded to comply with the requirements of the new standard, however, the adoption of ASU 2016-02 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures because leases are not material to the financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement - Disclosure Framework (Topic 820). The updated guidance improves the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements. The updated guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for any removed or modified disclosures. The Company is currently assessing the timing and impact of adopting the updated provisions.

In August 2018, The FASB issued ASU 2018-14 to improve the effectiveness of disclosures for defined benefit plans under ASC 715-20. The ASU applies to employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. The FASB issued ASU 2018-14 as part of its disclosure framework project, which has an objective and primary focus to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements. As part of the project, during August 2018, the Board also issued a Concepts Statement, which the FASB used as a basis for amending the disclosure requirements for Subtopic 715-20. The guidance is effective or fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the timing and impact of adopting the updated provisions.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13(“ASU 2016-13”), Financial Instruments—Credit Losses. Subsequently, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments- Credit Losses (Topic 326): Targeted Transition Relief and codification improvements to Topic 326 in ASU 2019-11, ASU 2019-04 and ASU 2018-19. The amendments update guidance on reporting credit losses for financial assets. These amendments affect loans, debt securities, trade receivables, net investments in leases, off balance sheet credit exposures, reinsurance receivables, and any other financial assets not excluded from the scope that have the contractual right to receive cash. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. All entities may adopt the amendments through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective (that is, a modified-retrospective approach). The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Subsequent to September 30, 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, “Financial Instruments - Credit Loss (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842),” which defers the effective date for public filers that are considered small reporting companies (“SRC”) as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Since the Company is an SRC, implementation is not needed until May 1, 2023. The Company will continue to evaluate the effect of adopting ASU 2016-13 will have on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

Note 2 Investments

 

The Company has investments in publicly traded equity securities, corporate bonds, state and municipal debt securities, real estate investment trusts, certificates of deposit, and money markets funds. The investments in securities are classified as available-for-sale securities and are reported at fair value. Available-for-sale investments in debt securities mature between November 2019 and September 2042. The Company uses the average cost method to determine the cost of securities sold and the amount reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income into earnings. Unrealized gains and losses are excluded from earnings and reported separately as a component of stockholders’ equity. Dividend and interest income are reported as earned.

 

As of October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, investments consisted of the following:

 

    Gross  Gross    
Investments at Cost  Unrealized  Unrealized  Fair

Total $23,425,000  $4,223,000  $(357,000) $27,291,000 

 

The Company evaluates all marketable securities for other-than-temporary declines in fair value, which are defined as when the cost basis exceeds the fair value for approximately one year. The Company also evaluates the nature of the investment, cause of impairment and number of investments that are in an unrealized position. When an “other-than-temporary” decline is identified, the Company will decrease the cost of the marketable security to the new fair value and recognize a real loss. The investments are periodically evaluated to determine if impairment changes are required. As a result of this standard, management recorded an impairment loss of $7,000 for the quarter, and recorded a loss of $41,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019. As for the corresponding periods last year, management recorded an impairment loss of $32,000 for both the quarter and six-months ended October 31, 2018.

The following table shows the investments with unrealized losses that are not deemed to be “other-than-temporarily impaired”, aggregated by investment category and length of time that individual securities have been in a continuous unrealized loss position, at October 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, respectively.

Municipal Bonds

 

The unrealized losses on the Company’s investments in municipal bonds were caused by interest rate increases. The contractual terms of these investments do not permit the issuer to settle the securities at a price less than the amortized cost of the investment. Because the Company has the ability to hold these investments until a recovery of fair value, which may be maturity, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at October 31, 2019.

 

Marketable Equity Securities and REITs

 

The Company’s investments in marketable equity securities and REITs consist of a wide variety of companies. Investments in these companies include growth, growth income, and foreign investment objectives. The individual holdings have been evaluated, and due to management’s plan to hold on to these investments for an extended period, the Company does not consider these investments to be other-than-temporarily impaired at October 31, 2019.

Note 7 Fair Value Measurements

 

Generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (US GAAP) defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities, which are required to be recorded at fair value, we consider the principal or most advantageous market in which we would transact and the market-based risk measurements or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions, and credit risk.

 

US GAAP establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). The levels of the fair value hierarchy under US GAAP are described below:

 

 Level 1Valuation is based upon quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.
   
 Level 2Valuation is based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market.
   
 Level 3Valuation is generated from model-based techniques that use significant assumptions not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect our own estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include use of option pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques.

 

Investments and Marketable Securities

 

As of October 31, 2019, our investments consisted of money markets, certificates of deposits (CDs), publicly traded equity securities, real estate investment trusts (REITs) as well as certain state and municipal debt securities and corporate bonds. Our marketable securities are valued using third-party broker statements. The value of the investments is derived from quoted market information. The inputs to the valuation are generally classified as Level 1 given the active market for these securities, however, if an active market does not exist, which is the case for municipal bonds and REITs, the inputs are recorded as Level 2.

 

Fair Value Hierarchy

 

The following table sets forth our assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis and a non-recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy. As required by US GAAP, assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OF FINANCIAL CONDITION

AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), which are subject to the “safe harbor” created by those sections. Any statements herein that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. For example, words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project” or “continue,” and the negatives of such terms are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The information included herein represents our estimates and assumptions as of the date of this filing. Unless required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the attached condensed financial statements, and with the Company’s audited financial statements and discussion for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019.

 

Executive Summary

 

The Company’s performance continues to improve through the first half of the current fiscal year with the first and second quarters presenting almost identical numbers. This is due to the continuation of our quality USA made products with the ability for customization, our notable customer service, and the purchase of the assets of Labor Saving Devices, Inc. Additionally, the Company’s products are traditionally tied to the housing market and with that market remaining strong, it in turn helps the Company’s sales grow. Opportunities include gaining business from a competitor that is getting out of the security switch business and to continue looking at businesses that might be a good fit to purchase. Challenges in the coming months include continuing to get product out to customers in a timely manner and to fill the stockroom with inventory to get back to shipping out core products the same day. Also, there have been some shortages of raw materials and prices of raw materials have increased with the execution of tariffs by the US government. Management continues to work at keeping operations flowing as efficient as possible with the hopes of getting the facilities running leaner and more profitable than ever before.

 

Results of Operations

 

 Net sales were $3,710,000 for the quarter ended October 31, 2019, which is an 1.17% increase from the corresponding quarter last year. Year-to-date net sales were $7,263,000 at October 31, 2019, which is a 2.35% increase from the same period last year. The increases in sales shows the stability of the Company and loyalty of its customer base. The ongoing commitment towards outstanding customer service and customization of products are a few of the many reasons sales continue to grow. Also, new sales have emerged since GRI acquired the assets of Labor Saving Devices. The Company has been selling this product line for a couple of years now, which has been a factor in the increased sales.
 Cost of goods sold was 50.13% of net sales for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 and was 51.62% for the same quarter last year. Year-to-date cost of goods sold percentages were 49.98% for the current six months and 52.07% for the corresponding six months last year. The current cost of goods sold percentages are right at Management’s goal of keeping labor and other manufacturing expenses at less than 50% for both the quarter and year-to-date results. Labor costs have decreased because Management has been working with and training employees to work more efficiently.

 

 22 
 

 

 Operating expenses were up $16,000 for the quarter and were up $36,000 for the six-months ended October 31, 2019 as compared to the corresponding periods last year. But when comparing percentages in relation to net sales, the operating expenses for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 was 24.37% of net sales while it was 24.22% of net sales for the same quarter the prior year. For year-to-date numbers, operating expense were 24.48% and 24.55% of net sales for the six months ended October 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The Company has been able to keep the operating expenses at less than 30% of net sales for many years now; however, the actual dollar amount increase is because of increased commission amounts (since sales have increased) and additional labor costs for hiring new employees and wage increases.
 Income from operations for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 was at $946,000, which is a 6.77% increase from the corresponding quarter last year, which had income from operations of $886,000. Income from operations for the six months ended October 31, 2019 was at $1,855,000, which is a 11.81% increase from the corresponding six months last year, which had income from operations of $1,659,000.
 Other income and expenses are up when comparing the current quarter and six-month periods to the prior year, with an increase of $46,000 in the current quarter and an increase of $161,000 for the current year-to-date numbers. Most of the activity in these accounts consists of investment interest, dividends, and gain or loss on sale of investments. The increase is primarily due to increased dividend and interest income and taking gains on the sale of investments.
  Overall, net income for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 was up $96,000, or 12.50%, from the same quarter last year. Similarly, net income for the six-month period ended October 31, 2019 was up $343,000, or 24.75%, from the same period in the prior year.
 Earnings per common share for quarter ended October 31, 2019 were $0.17 per share and $0.35 per share for the year-to-date numbers. EPS for the quarter and six months ended October 31, 2018 were $0.15 per share and $0.28 per share, respectively.

 

Liquidity and capital resources

 

Operating

 

 Net cash increased $339,000 during the six months ended October 31, 2019 as compared to a decrease of $204,000 during the corresponding period last year.
 Accounts receivable decreased $486,000 for the six months ended October 31, 2019 compared with a $23,000 decrease for the same period last year. The current year decrease is a result of improved sales and collections on accounts receivable have improved over the last year. An analysis of accounts shows that there were only 0.02% that were over 90 days at October 31, 2019.
 Inventories increased $583,000 during the current six-month period as compared to a $435,000 increase last year. The bigger increase in the current year is primarily due to increased sales and being able to have inventory on hand to get product out to customers in a timely manner.
 Prepaid expenses saw a $271,000 decrease for the current six months, primarily due to inventory being delivered that had to be paid for in advance. The prior six months showed a $168,000 increase in prepaid expenses.
 Income tax overpayment for the period ended October 31, 2019 decreased $114,000, while there was an increase of $97,000 for the same period the prior year. The current decrease is due to making an educated evaluation of the Company’s income tax estimates.

 Accounts payable shows decreases for the current and prior six-month periods of $36,000 and $189,000, respectively. The company strives to pay all invoices within terms, and the variance in the decreases is primarily due to the timing of receipt of products and payment of invoices.
 Accrued expenses increased $11,000 for the current six-month period as compared to a $8,000 increase for the six-month period ended October 31, 2018. The current year increase is due to increased wages and commissions.

 

Investing

 

 As for our investment activities, the Company purchased $179,000 of property and equipment during the current six-month period. In comparison with the corresponding six months last year, the Company did not buy any fixed assets.
 Additionally, the Company continues to purchase marketable securities, which include municipal bonds and quality stocks. During the six-month period ended October 31, 2019 there was quite a bit of buy/sell activity in the investment accounts. Net cash spent on purchases of marketable securities for the six-month period ended October 31, 2019 was $250,000 compared to $324,000 spent in the prior six-month period. We continue to use “money manager” accounts for most stock transactions. By doing this, the Company gives an independent third-party firm, who are experts in this field, permission to buy and sell stocks at will. The Company pays a quarterly service fee based on the value of the investments.

 

Financing

 

 The Company continues to purchase back its common stock when the opportunity arises. For the six-month period ended October 31, 2019, the Company purchased $54,000 worth of treasury stock, in comparison to $54,000 repurchased in the corresponding six-month period last year.
 The company declared a dividend of $0.40 per share of common stock on September 30, 2019, which was paid out during the second quarter. This is a slight increase to the dividend of $0.38, which was declared and paid during the second fiscal quarter last year.

New Product Development

 

The Company and its engineering department continue to develop enhancements to product lines, develop new products that complement existing products, and look for products that are well suited to our distribution network and manufacturing capabilities. Items currently in the development process include:

 

 A new face plate for our pool alarms is nearing completion. The innovative design is slim in style and will also allow the homeowner to change the plate to match their décor.
 An updated version of the pool access alarm is currently going through electrical listing testing. This next-generation model combines our battery operated DPA series with our hard wired 289 series. A variety of installation options will be available through jumper pin settings.
 We continue to work on high security switches. We have a triple biased high security switch design nearly complete and an adjustable magnet design was completed for recessed mounting applications.
 Tool and die is currently working on a mold for a new version of the channel magnet. These magnets fit into the top channel of steel doors; no drilling of the recessed magnet required.
 Wireless technology is a main area of focus for product development. We are considering adding wireless technology to some of our current products. A wireless contact switch is in the final stages of development. Also, we are working on wireless versions of our Pool Alarm and environmental sensors that will be easy to install in current construction. We are also concentrating on making products compatible with Wi-Fi, smartphone technology and the increasing popular Z-Wave standard for wireless home automation.
 We are ready to launch a new Labor Saving Devices product. It is a 12” adjustable hole cutter which complements our popular 10” hole cutter. Using a standard drill, this tool allows you to drill various size holes in the ceiling for speakers and canned lights. The dust bin which, sits against the ceiling, keeps the ceiling material and dust enclosed making for a clean, time saving installation.

 

Other Information

 

In addition to researching and developing new products, management is always open to the possibility of acquiring a business or product line that would complement our existing operations. Due to the Company’s strong cash position, management believes this could be achieved without the need for outside financing. The intent is to utilize the equipment, marketing techniques and established customers to deliver new products and increase sales and profits.

 

There are no known seasonal trends with any of GRI’s products, since we sell to distributors and OEM manufacturers. Our products are tied to the housing industry and will fluctuate with building trends.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”), which provides guidance for accounting for leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to classify leases as either finance or operating leases and to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term greater than 12 months regardless of the lease classification. The lease classification will determine whether the lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest rate method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Accounting for lessors remains largely unchanged from current GAAP. ASU 2016-02 is effective for the Company beginning November 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-10 “Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases” (“ASU 2018-10”) and ASU No. 2018-11 “Leases (Topic 842) Targeted Improvements” (“ASU 2018-11”). ASU 2018-10 provides certain amendments that affect narrow aspects of the guidance issued in ASU 2016-02. ASU 2018-11 allows all entities adopting ASU 2016-02 to choose an additional (and optional) transition method of adoption, under which an entity initially applies the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognizes a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. ASU 2018-11 also allows lessors to not separate non-lease components from the associated lease component if certain conditions are met. The Company adopted the ASUs in the first quarter of 2019 and the Company’s accounting systems will be upgraded to comply with the requirements of the new standard, however, the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (ASU 2018-02). Under existing U.S. GAAP, the effects of changes in tax rates and laws on deferred tax balances are recorded as a component of income tax expense in the period in which the law was enacted. When deferred tax balances related to items originally recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) are adjusted, certain tax effects become stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income. The amendments in ASU 2018-02 allow a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) to retained earnings (accumulated deficit) for stranded income tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Act). The amendments in this ASU also require certain disclosures about stranded income tax effects. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption in any period is permitted. The Company has not yet adopted ASU 2018-02 and is currently evaluating the potential impact of adopting the applicable guidance on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-09, “Codification Improvements” (“ASU 2018-09”). ASU 2018-09 provides amendments to a wide variety of topics in the FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification, which applies to all reporting entities within the scope of the affected accounting guidance. The transition and effective date guidance are based on the facts and circumstances of each amendment. Some of the amendments in ASU 2018-09 do not require transition guidance and were effective upon issuance of ASU 2018-09. However, many of the amendments do have transition guidance with effective dates for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018. We are currently evaluating the potential impact of adopting the applicable guidance, however we do not believe that the adoption of ASU 2018-09 will have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement - Disclosure Framework (Topic 820). The updated guidance improves the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements. The updated guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for any removed or modified disclosures. The Company is currently assessing the timing and impact of adopting the updated provisions.

 

In August 2018, The FASB issued ASU 2018-14 to improve the effectiveness of disclosures for defined benefit plans under ASC 715-20. The ASU applies to employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. The FASB issued ASU 2018-14 as part of its disclosure framework project, which has an objective and primary focus to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements. As part of the project, during August 2018, the Board also issued a Concepts Statement, which the FASB used as a basis for amending the disclosure requirements for Subtopic 715-20. The guidance is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the timing and impact of adopting the updated provisions.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13(“ASU 2016-13”), Financial Instruments—Credit Losses. Subsequently, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, Financial Instruments- Credit Losses (Topic 326): Targeted Transition Relief and codification improvements to Topic 326 in ASU 2019-11, ASU 2019-04 and ASU 2018-19. The amendments update guidance on reporting credit losses for financial assets. These amendments affect loans, debt securities, trade receivables, net investments in leases, off balance sheet credit exposures, reinsurance receivables, and any other financial assets not excluded from the scope that have the contractual right to receive cash. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. All entities may adopt the amendments through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective (that is, a modified-retrospective approach). The ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Subsequent to September 30, 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, “Financial Instruments - Credit Loss (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842),” which defers the effective date for public filers that are considered small reporting companies (“SRC”) as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Since the Company is an SRC, implementation is not needed until May 1, 2023. The Company will continue to evaluate the effect of adopting ASU 2016-13 will have on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not applicable

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our chief executive officer (also working as our chief financial officer), evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of October 31, 2019. Based on that evaluation, our chief executive officer (also working as our chief financial officer) concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures employed at the Company were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms.

 

We continue to operate with a limited number of accounting and financial personnel. A new accounting professional was hired in 2018 to fill the Controller position. Continued training will be required to fulfill disclosure control and procedure responsibilities, including review procedures for key accounting schedules and timely and proper documentation of material transactions and agreements. Until sufficient training has taken place for this new Controller, we believe this control deficiency represents material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting.

 

Despite the material weaknesses in financial reporting noted above, we believe that our consolidated financial statements included in this report fairly present our financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the periods presented in all material respects.

 

We are committed to the establishment of effective internal controls over financial reporting and will place emphasis on quarterly and year-end closing procedures, timely documentation and internal review of accounting and financial reporting consequences of material contracts and agreements, and enhanced review of all schedules and account analyses by experienced accounting department personnel or independent consultants.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2019 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
