NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2018, the results of operations and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.  These results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

The financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and consequently have been condensed and do not include all of the disclosures normally made in an Annual Report on Form 10-K.  The December 31, 2017 balance sheet included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K. Accordingly, the financial statements included herein should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the SEC on March 26, 2018.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is the excess of acquisition cost of an acquired entity over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired.  Goodwill is not amortized, but tested for impairment annually or whenever indicators of impairment exist. These indicators may include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, sale or disposition of a significant portion of the business or other factors. No impairment losses were identified or recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.

 

Capitalization of proprietary developed software

 

Software development costs are accounted for in accordance with ASC 985-20, Software — Costs of Software to be Sold, Leased or Marketed. Costs associated with the planning and designing phase of software development are expensed as incurred. Once technological feasibility has been determined, a portion of the costs incurred in development, including coding, testing and quality assurance, are capitalized until available for general release to clients, and subsequently reported at the lower of unamortized cost or net realizable value. Amortization is calculated on a solution-by-solution basis and is over the estimated economic life of the software. Amortization commences when a solution is available for general release to clients.

 

Definite Lived Intangible Assets and Long-lived Assets

 

The purchased intangible assets are recorded at fair value using an independent valuation at the date of acquisition and are amortized over the useful lives of the asset using the straight-line amortization method. 

 

The Company assesses potential impairment of its intangible assets and other long-lived assets when there is evidence that recent events or changes in circumstances have made recovery of an asset’s carrying value unlikely. Factors the Company considers important, which may cause impairment include, among others, significant changes in the manner of use of the acquired asset, negative industry or economic trends, and significant underperformance relative to historical or projected operating results. No impairment losses were identified or recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606 which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP. The core principle of Topic 606 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. Topic 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing GAAP, including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation, among others. Topic 606 also provides guidance on the recognition of costs related to obtaining customer contracts.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Topic 606 was effective as of January 1, 2018 using either of two methods: (1) retrospective application of Topic 606 to each prior reporting period presented with the option to elect certain practical expedients as defined within Topic 606 or (2) retrospective application of Topic 606 with the cumulative effect of initially applying Topic 606 recognized at the date of initial application and providing certain additional disclosures as defined per Topic 606. The Company adopted Topic 606 pursuant to the method (2) and it determined that any cumulative effect for the initial application did not require an adjustment to retained earnings at January 1, 2018.  Software product revenue is recognized when the product is delivered to the customer and the Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled.

 

Service revenue is recognized when the professional consulting, maintenance or other ancillary services are provided to the customer. Shipping and handling costs charged to customers are classified as revenue, and the shipping and handling costs incurred are included in cost of sales.

 

Unbilled Services

 

The Company recognizes revenue on its professional services as those services are performed or certain obligations are met. Unbilled services represent the revenue recognized but not yet invoiced. 

 

Deferred Revenues 

 

Deferred revenues consist of maintenance on proprietary products, customer telephone support services and deposits for future consulting services which will be earned as services are performed over the contractual or stated period, which generally ranges from three to twelve months. As of September 30, 2018, there was $421,509 in deferred maintenance, $195,264 in deferred support services, and $1,436,618 in deposits for future consulting services.

 

Commissions

 

Sales commissions relating to service revenues are considered incremental and recoverable costs of obtaining a project with our customer.  These commissions are calculated based on estimated revenue to be generated over the life of the project.  These costs are deferred and expensed as the service revenue is earned.  Commission expense is included in selling and marketing expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents 

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to federally insured limits. At times balances may exceed FDIC insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts.

 

Concentrations 

 

The Company maintains its cash with various institutions, which exceed federally insured limits throughout the year.  At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had cash on deposit of $1,427,700 and $1,933,772 respectively in excess of the federally insured limits of $250,000.

 

As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, no one customer represented more than 10% of the total accounts receivable and unbilled services.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our top ten customers accounted for 16% ($4,962,832) and 22% ($5,623,698), respectively, of our total revenues.  The Company does not rely on any one specific customer for any significant portion of our revenue.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, purchases from one supplier through a “channel partner” agreement were approximately 22% and 25% of cost of revenues, respectively.  This channel partner agreement is for a one-year term and automatically renews for an additional one-year term on the anniversary of the agreements effective date.

 

As of September 30, 2018, one supplier represented approximately 43% of total accounts payable. As of December 31, 2017, one supplier represented approximately 37% of total accounts payable.

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of accounts receivable and cash.  As of September 30, 2018, the Company believes it has no significant risk related to its concentration of accounts receivable.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable consist primarily of invoices for maintenance and professional services. Full payment for software ordered by customers is primarily due in advance of ordering from the software supplier. Payments for maintenance and support plan renewals are due before the beginning of the maintenance period. Terms under our professional service agreements are generally 50% due in advance and the balance on completion of the services.

 

The Company maintains an allowance for bad debt estimated by considering a number of factors, including the length of time the amounts are past due, the Company’s previous loss history and the customer’s current ability to pay its obligations.  Accounts are written off against the allowance when deemed uncollectable.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and amortization.  Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based upon the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally three to seven years.  Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives or the term of the lease, whichever is shorter. Maintenance and repairs that do not materially add to the value of the equipment nor appreciably prolong its life are charged to expense as incurred.

 

When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and the resulting gain or loss is included in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes, as well as net operating loss carryforwards. Based on ASU 2015-17, all deferred tax assets or liabilities are classified as long-term. Valuation allowances are established against deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates or laws is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

The Company has federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards which are subject to limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions. Tax years 2014 to 2017 remain open to examination for both the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Reform includes a number of changes in existing tax law impacting businesses including a permanent reduction in the U.S. federal statutory rate from 34% to 21%, effective on January 1, 2018. Under U.S. GAAP, changes in tax rates and tax law are accounted for in the period of enactment and deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the enacted tax rate. The rate reconciliation includes the Company’s assessment of the accounting under the Tax Reform which is preliminary and is based on information that was available to management at the time the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared.

 

There were no liabilities for uncertain tax positions at September 30, 2018 or December 31, 2017.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

The accounting standards define fair value and establish a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use on unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. The hierarchy is as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.

 

Level 2: Observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted on active markets, but corroborated by market data.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.

 

The Company’s current financial assets and liabilities approximate fair value due to their short term nature and include cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities.  The carrying value of longer term leases, contingent consideration and debt obligations approximate fair value as their stated interest rates approximate the rates currently available. The Company’s goodwill and intangibles are measured on a non-recurring basis using Level 3 inputs, as discussed in Note 5.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Compensation expense related to share-based transactions, including employee stock options, is measured and recognized in the financial statements based on a determination of the fair value. The grant date fair value is determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton (“Black-Scholes”) pricing model. For employee stock options, the Company recognizes expense over the requisite service period on a straight-line basis (generally the vesting period of the equity grant). The Company’s option pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected stock price volatility and expected term. Any changes in these highly subjective assumptions may significantly impact stock-based compensation expense.

 

Recently Adopted Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606 which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP. The core principle of Topic 606 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. The ASU defines a five-step process to achieve the core principal and, in doing so, it is possible more judgement and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are currently in use. The ASU was effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018 using either of two methods: (1) retrospective application to each prior reporting period presented with the option to elect certain practical expedients or (2) retrospective application with the cumulative effect of initially applying the ASU recognized at the date of the initial application and providing certain disclosures. The Company adopted Topic 606 pursuant to the method (2) and it determined that any cumulative effect for the initial application did not require an adjustment to retained earnings at January 1, 2018.

Recent Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as modified by ASU’s 2018-1, 2018-10 and 2018-11 (collectively ASU 2016-02). Under ASU 2016-02, an entity will be required to recognize assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leases on the entity’s balance sheet for both finance and operating leases. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, an entity can elect to not recognize lease assets and lease liabilities and expense over a straight-line basis for the term of the lease. ASU 2016-02 will require new disclosures that depict the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows pertinent to an entity’s leases. Companies may adopt the new standard using a modified retrospective approach or a cumulative effect upon adoption approach for the annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption of ASU 2016-02 is permitted. The Company is currently in the process of assessing the impact of this ASU on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350), which includes provisions, intended to simplify the test for goodwill impairment. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a significant impact on its financial position and results of operations.

 

In June 2018, the FASB, issued ASU No. 2018-07 to simplify the accounting for share-based payments to nonemployees by aligning it with the accounting for share-based payments to employees, with certain exceptions. The new guidance expands the scope of Accounting Standards Codification, or ASC, 718 to include share-based payments granted to nonemployees in exchange for goods or services used or consumed in an entity’s own operations and supersedes the guidance in ASC 505-50. The guidance is effective for public business entities in annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted, including in an interim period for which financial statements have not been issued, but not before an entity adopts ASC 606. The Company is currently evaluating the effect of this guidance on its consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

 

No other recently issued accounting pronouncements had or are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – NET INCOME PER COMMON SHARE 

 

The Company’s basic income per common share is based on net income for the relevant period, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted income per common share is based on net income, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including common share equivalents, such as outstanding option and warrants to the extent they are dilutive. The computation of diluted income per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017 does not include all share equivalents as the exercise price of certain warrants and options exceeded the average market price of the common stock. Convertible debt is included below, based on if-converted method.

NOTE 9 – BUSINESS COMBINATION 

 

On May 31, 2018 SWK acquired certain assets of Info Sys Management, Inc. (“ISM”), a reseller of Sage and Acumatica software, pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement for a promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 (“ISM Note”) and a cash payment of $300,000.  The ISM Note is due May 31, 2023 and bears an interest rate of 2% per year. The monthly payments including interest are $17,528. The ISM Note has an optional conversion feature where the Holder may, at its sole and exclusive option, elect to convert, at any time and from time to time, until payment in full of the ISM Note, all of the principal amount of the ISM Note, plus accrued interest, into shares (the “Conversion Shares”) of the Company’s Common Stock, (“Common Stock”), at a price equal to the average closing price of its Common Stock for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the issuance date of the ISM Note (the “Fixed Conversion Price”) which resulted in a $4.03 per share conversion based on the above formula. The purchase was initially allocated, based on the Company’s estimate of fair value, to intangible assets, which are expected to consist primarily of customers lists with an estimated life of five years. Upon completion of an independent valuation, the allocation of the purchase price to customer lists will be modified with the excess purchase consideration being allocated to goodwill.

 

On May 31, 2018 SCS acquired certain assets of Nellnube, Inc. (“Nellnube”), a business application hosting company, pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement for a promissory note (“Nellnube Note”) in the aggregate principal amount of $400,000. The Nellnube Note is due on May 31, 2023 and bears an interest rate of 2% per year. The monthly payments including interest are $7,011. The Nellnube Note has an optional conversion feature where the Holder may, at its sole and exclusive option, elect to convert, at any time and from time to time, until payment in full of the Nellnube Note, all of the principal amount of the Nellnube Note, plus accrued interest, into shares (the “Conversion Shares”) of the Company’s Common Stock, (“Common Stock”), at a price equal to the average closing price of its Common Stock for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the issuance date of the Nellnube Note which resulted in a $4.03 per share conversion based on the above formula. The purchase was initially allocated, based on the Company’s estimate of fair value, to intangible assets, which are expected to consist primarily of customers lists with an estimated life of five years. Upon completion of an independent valuation, the allocation of the purchase price to customer lists will be modified with the excess purchase consideration being allocated to goodwill.

NOTE 9 – BUSINESS COMBINATION (Continued)

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the nine months ending September 30, 2018 include the actual results of ISM and Nellnube since the date of acquisition, May 31, 2018.

 

For the three months ending September 30, 2017, there is $78,000 of amortization and interest expense included in the ISM/Nellnube pro-forma three months results. For the nine months ending September 30, 2018, there is $130,000 of amortization and interest expense included in the ISM/Nellnube pro-forma five months results and for the nine months ending September 30, 2017, there is $233,000 of amortization and interest expense included in the ISM/Nellnube pro-forma nine months results.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, the ISM/Nellnube operations had a net income before taxes of $78,172 which represented three months of operations that were included in the Company’s Condensed Unaudited Consolidated Statement of Income. This consisted of approximately $810,456 in revenues, $307,284 in cost of revenues, and $425,000 in operating expenses.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the ISM/Nellnube operations had a net income before taxes of $97,496 which represented four months of operations that were included in the Company’s Condensed Unaudited Consolidated Statement of Income. This consisted of approximately $1,010,799 in revenues, $383,244 in cost of revenues, and $530,059 in operating expenses.

 

NOTE 10 – INCOME TAXES

 

The recognized deferred tax asset is based upon the expected utilization of its benefit from future taxable income. The Company has federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards of approximately $6,849,000 as of September 30, 2018, which is subject to limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. These carryforward losses are available to offset future taxable income, and begin to expire in the year 2024 to 2034. 

 

The foregoing amounts are management’s estimates and the actual results could differ from those estimates. Future profitability in this competitive industry depends on continually obtaining and fulfilling new profitable sales agreements and modifying products.  The inability to obtain new profitable contracts could reduce estimates of future profitability, which could affect the Company’s ability to realize the deferred tax assets.

NOTE 10 – INCOME TAXES (Continued)

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s Federal and State provision requirements were calculated based on the estimated tax rate. The Federal effective rate is higher than the statutory rate primarily due to Incentive Stock Options (ISO) expense and 50% of general meals which are not deductible. The provision for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $99,296. The effective tax rate consists primarily of the 21% federal statutory tax rate and a blended 5% state and local tax rate.

Contingent Consideration

 

On October 1, 2015, SWK entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Macabe Purchase Agreement”) with The Macabe Associates, Inc., (“Macabe”), a Washington corporation and Mary Abdian and John Nicholson in their individual capacity as Shareholders. SWK acquired certain assets and liabilities of Macabe (as defined in the Macabe Purchase Agreement). In consideration for the acquired assets, the Company paid $21,423 in cash. Additionally, the Company will pay 35% of the net margin on software maintenance renewals for former Macabe customers for the first twelve months, and then 30%, 25% and 20% of the net margin on software maintenance renewals for the following three years. The Company will also pay 50% the first year, and 40%, 30% and 20% the three years after on the net margin on EASY Solution Maintenance, new software & license to existing Macabe customers and EASY Solutions software and maintenance sales to new customers. On any former Macabe customers migrating to Netsuite, X3 or Acumatica, the Company will pay 50% of the net margin of the sale after applicable costs and commissions for the three year period after the acquisition. The Company estimated this contingent consideration to be approximately $417,971 at acquisition. Certain payments were made in each of these contingent consideration components, resulting in a remaining balance of $37,723 as of September 30, 2018. The Company estimates that the contingent consideration will be fully paid by September 30, 2019.

 

 NOTE 13 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

On October 24, 2018, the Company cancelled an aggregate of 1,000 shares of stock previously issued on January 18, 2018 to ten (10) non-executive employees of SWK. This was in response to the Company’s non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c). The Company has regained compliance.

 

On October 29, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors, subject to shareholder approval, adopted the 2018 Equity and Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”). If approved by shareholders, the 2018 Plan will provide stock-based incentive compensation to select officers, employees, non-employee directors, consultants and service providers. Approval of the 2018 Plan will allow the Company to award stock options in the form of non-qualified and incentive options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, and restricted stock units to employees and to non-employee directors, consultants and service providers. In determining the number of shares available under the 2018 Plan, the Company considered the historical burn-rate of the Company’s previous incentive plans, and the potential dilution to shareholders. The 675,000 shares available under the 2018 Plan represent approximately 15% of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock as of October 26, 2018. The NASDAQ Capital Market closing price of a share of Common Stock on October 26, 2018 was $3.55. Based on historical burn rates and the Company’s current stock price, the Compensation Committee believes the 675,000 shares that may be awarded under the 2018 Plan should be sufficient to cover grants in the coming years.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,

 

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other reports filed by SilverSun Technologies, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, SWK Technologies, Inc., Secured Cloud Services, Inc. and Critical Cyber Defense Corp. (together the “Company”, “we”, “our”, and “us”) from time to time with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) contain or may contain forward-looking statements and information that are based upon beliefs of, and information currently available to, the Company’s management as well as estimates and assumptions made by Company’s management.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are only predictions and speak only as of the date hereof.  When used in the filings, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions as they relate to the Company or the Company’s management identify forward-looking statements.  Such statements reflect the current view of the Company with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, including the risks contained in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, relating to the Company’s industry, the Company’s operations and results of operations, and any businesses that the Company may acquire.  Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended, or planned.

 

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements.  Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, the Company does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgments and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments and assumptions are made.  These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Our consolidated financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result.  The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report.

Value-Added Services for ERP

 

We go beyond simply reselling software packages; we have a consulting and professional services organization that manages the process as we move from the sales stage into implementation, go live, and production. We work inside our customers’ organizations to ensure all software and Information Technology (“IT”) solutions are enhancing their business needs. A significant portion of our services revenue comes from continuing to work with existing customers as their business needs change, upgrading from one version of software to another, or providing additional software solutions to help them grow their revenue. We have a dedicated help desk team that fields hundreds of calls every week. Our custom programming department builds specialized software packages as well as “off the shelf” enhancements and time and billing software.

 

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) Software and Services

 

EDI is the computer to computer exchange of standard business documents, such as purchase orders and invoices, in electronic format. A standard file format is established for each kind of document in order to facilitate the exchange of data across a variety of platforms and programs. We have a proprietary software solution, MAPADOC, which is fully integrated with the Sage ERPs. MAPADOC allows businesses to dramatically cut data entry time by eliminating duplicate entries and reduces costly errors with trading partners. MAPADOC is the only EDI solution that is built within the framework of the Sage ERPs, allowing customers to stay within one application to get their job done.

 

Network and Managed Services

 

We provide comprehensive network and managed services designed to eliminate the IT concerns of our customers. Businesses can focus on their core strengths rather than technology issues. We adapt our solutions for virtually any type of business, from large national and international product and service providers, to small businesses with local customers. Our business continuity services provide automatic on and off site backups, complete encryption, and automatic failure testing. We also provide email and web security, IT consulting, managed network, and emergency IT services. Our focus in the network and managed services practice is to focus on industry verticals in order to demonstrate our ability to better understand our customers’ needs.

 

We continue to develop new products, obtain new customers and increase sales to existing customers. Management also plans to increase its business and profitability by entering into collaboration agreements, buying assets, and acquiring companies in the business software and information technology consulting and managed services market with solid revenue streams and established customer bases that generate positive cash flow. We also plan to add new product offerings to provide a greater a range of products to our customers.

Income from Operations 

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company had income from operations of $255,077 and $375,720 respectively as compared to income from operations of $549,427 and $1,029,733 respectively for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017. 

 

The decrease is due to increases in payroll and related expenses associated with the addition of management, operations and sales personnel.

 

Income Taxes 

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s Federal and State provision requirements were calculated based on the estimated tax rate. The Federal effective rate is higher than the statutory rate primarily due to Incentive Stock Options (ISO) expense and 50% of general meals and entertainment expense which is not tax deductible. The provision for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $99,296. The effective tax rate consists primarily of the 21% federal statutory tax rate and a blended 5% state and local tax rate. The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Reform includes a number of changes in existing tax law impacting businesses including a permanent reduction in the U.S. federal statutory rate from 34% to 21%, effective on January 1, 2018.

 

Net Income 

 

For the three and nine months September 30, 2018, the Company had net income of $170,938 and $246,537 respectively as compared to a net income of $317,823 and $592,170 respectively for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017. The net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 is down compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017 primarily due to the additional payroll and related expenses associated with the addition of management, operations and sales personnel.  

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We are currently seeking additional operating income opportunities through potential acquisitions or investments. Such acquisitions or investments may consume cash reserves or require additional cash or equity.  Our working capital and additional funding requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including: (i) strategic acquisitions or investments; (ii) an increase to current company personnel; (iii) the level of resources that we devote to sales and marketing capabilities; (iv) technological advances; and (v) the activities of competitors.

 

In addition to developing new products, obtaining new customers and increasing sales to existing customers, management plans to increase its business and profitability by entering into collaboration agreements, buying assets, and acquiring companies in the business software and information technology consulting and managed services market with solid revenue streams and established customer bases that generate positive cash flow.

 

On September 11, 2018, SWK entered into a Revolving Demand Note (the “Revolving Demand Note”) by and between SWK and JP Morgan Chase Bank (“Lender”), a commercial lender. The Lender has agreed to loan SWK up to a principal amount of two million dollars. The interest rate on the Revolving Demand Note shall be a variable rate, equal to the “Adjusted LIBOR Rate”, plus three percent (3.00%) per annum.  The Revolving Demand Note is secured by all of SWK’s assets pursuant to a Security Agreement. The line is also collateralized by substantially all of the assets of the Company. This Revolving Demand Note replaces the M&T Bank Revolving Demand Note and expires August 31, 2019. At September 30, 2018 there were no borrowings under the Revolving Demand Note.

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon 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.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act.  Based on the controls evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that as of the date of their evaluation, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that (a) the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (b) such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and President and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and Rule 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during our most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
