DATAWATCH CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Datawatch Corporation (the “Company” or “Datawatch”) is engaged in the design, development, marketing, distribution and support of business computer software primarily for the self-service data preparation, predictive analytics and visual data discovery markets. 

 

NOTE 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Datawatch and its wholly-owned subsidiaries and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2017 filed with the SEC. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017, and include all adjustments necessary for fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented. The operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year. The Company considers events or transactions that occur after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are issued to provide additional evidence relative to certain estimates or to identify matters that require additional disclosure.

 

NOTE 3. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and debt. The estimated fair values have been determined through information obtained from market sources and management estimates.  The estimated fair value of certain financial instruments including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, unbilled accounts receivables, accounts payable and debt, approximate the carrying value due to their short-term maturity.

 

The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of fair value hierarchy which are as follows:

 

·  Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

·  Level 2 — Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and

 

·  Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Company classified its cash equivalents, which primarily include money market mutual funds of $16.5 million as of September 30, 2017 within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The Company held no money market mutual funds as of June 30, 2018.

 

 5 

 

  

As of September 30, 2017, the Company’s assets that are measured on a recurring basis and whose carrying values approximate their respective fair values include the following (in thousands):

 

   September 30, 2017 
   Fair Value Measurement 
   Using Input Types 
   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Assets:               
Money market funds  $-   $16,470   $- 
Total  $-   $16,470   $- 

 

Non-financial assets such as goodwill, indefinite lived assets and long-lived assets are also subject to fair value measurements. Goodwill and indefinite lived assets are subject to recurring fair value measurements to determine whether impairment exists. Long-lived assets are subject to non-recurring fair value measurements if they are deemed to be impaired. The impairment models used for nonfinancial assets depend on the type of asset and are accounted for in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) guidance on fair value measurement.

 

NOTE 4. ANGOSS ACQUISITION

 

On January 30, 2018 (the “Acquisition Date”), Datawatch, through its wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Angoss Software Corporation ("Angoss"), a corporation existing under the laws of Ontario, for $24.6 million in cash, net of $3.0 million in cash acquired (the “Angoss Acquisition”). Of this payment, $0.1 million was determined to be post-combination compensation expense. Excluding this amount, the purchase consideration for the Angoss Acquisition totaled $24.5 million.

 

The Company accounted for the Angoss Acquisition in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. The Company has allocated the cost to acquire Angoss to its identifiable tangible and intangible assets and liabilities, with the remaining amount classified as goodwill. While the Company uses its best estimates and assumptions as part of the purchase price allocation process to value the assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date, its estimates and assumptions are subject to refinement. Fair value estimates are based on a complex series of judgments about future events and uncertainties and rely heavily on estimates and assumptions. The judgments used to determine the estimated fair value assigned to each class of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, as well as asset lives, can materially impact the Company’s results of operations. The finalization of the purchase accounting assessment may result in a change in the valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed and may have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations and financial position. The Angoss Acquisition will necessitate the use of this measurement period to adequately analyze and assess a number of the factors used in establishing the fair value of certain tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date and the related tax impacts of any changes made. Any potential adjustments made could be material in relation to the preliminary values presented below. During the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded measurement period adjustments that resulted in an increase of goodwill of approximately $18,000.

 

The table below summarizes the estimated fair value of net assets acquired and net liabilities assumed in the Angoss Acquisition as of January 30, 2018 (in thousands).

 

   Amount 
Accounts receivable  $1,933 
Unbilled accounts receivable   6,882 
Prepaid expenses and other current assets   370 
Property and equipment   250 
Customer relationships   4,500 
Developed technology   3,400 
Trade names   3,200 
Goodwill   11,527 
Accounts payable   (186)
Accrued expenses   (932)
Deferred revenue   (5,643)
Deferred tax liability   (848)
Fair value of assets and liabilities acquired  $24,453 

 

 6 

 

  

The amount of goodwill resulting from the allocation of purchase consideration is primarily attributable to expected synergies. Goodwill is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. In accordance with FASB ASC 805, goodwill will not be amortized but instead will be tested for impairment at least annually and more frequently if certain indicators of impairment are present. In the event that goodwill becomes impaired, we will record an expense for the amount impaired during the fiscal quarter in which the determination is made.

 

The Company incurred approximately $0.2 million of acquisition related costs in the three-month period ended June 30, 2018 and $1.2 million for the nine-month period ended June 30, 2018. These costs are included in general and administrative expense in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

 

The intangible assets, excluding goodwill and assembled workforce are being amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated lives as follows (in thousands):

 

   Fair   Estimated
   Value   Lives
        
Customer relationships  $4,500   5.0 years
Developed technology   3,400   8.0 years
Trade names   3,200   Indefinite
Total intangible assets  $11,100    

 

In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 350, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other, management determined that the straight-line method of amortization would be used for customer relationships and developed technology as this pattern most closely reflects the economic benefits of the intangible assets consumed.

 

Management is responsible for the valuation of net assets acquired and considered a number of factors, including valuations and appraisals, when estimating the fair values and estimated useful lives of acquired assets and liabilities. The fair values of the intangible assets and certain liabilities were determined using variations of the income approach.

 

Customer relationships

 

The $4.5 million fair value of customer relationships was determined using the multi-period excess earnings method, which estimates the fair value of an asset based on its ability to generate future cash flows. The 5 year useful life of customer relationships was determined based on an analysis of future net cash flows and the amount of time that would be required to realize 95% of the cumulative net cash flows attributable to the existing customer relationships.

 

Developed Technology

 

The $3.4 million fair value of developed technology was determined using the relief from royalty method. By owning the developed technology, Datawatch does not have to pay royalties for the continued use of the asset, which has value. Management determined a useful life of 8 years for this asset is appropriate because it represents the point in time at which 95% of the cumulative net cash flows attributable to the developed technology would be expected to be realized.

 

 7 

 

  

Trade Names

 

Similar to developed technology, the $3.2 million fair value of the trade names were determined using the relief from royalty method. Management has utilized an indefinite useful life for the acquired ‘Angoss’ and ‘Knowledge’ trade names as the Company currently plans to continue to use both trade names in association with all product and service offerings underlying the cash flows attributable to these trade names.

 

Deferred revenue

 

The fair value of the acquired deferred revenue of $5.6 million was determined using a cost build-up approach, which estimates the costs to complete the remaining obligations underlying the deferred revenue and applying a mark-up reflecting an appropriate operating margin.

 

Deferred tax liability

 

As part of the purchase accounting related to the Angoss Acquisition, the Company recognized a deferred tax liability of $0.8 million related to indefinite lived tradename intangible assets acquired in the Angoss Acquisition.

 

Pro forma results

 

The following unaudited pro forma results are prepared for comparative purposes only and do not necessarily reflect the results that would have occurred had the Angoss Acquisition occurred at the beginning of the periods presented or the results which may occur in the future. The following unaudited pro forma results of operations assume the Angoss Acquisition had occurred on October 1, 2017 (in thousands):

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended 
   June 30,   June 30, 
   2018   2017   2018   2017 
                 
Revenues  $11,105   $11,449   $33,700   $47,416 
Net loss  $(2,281)  $(904)  $(7,611)  $(3,807)
Net loss per share – basic:  $(0.18)  $(0.07)  $(0.61)  $(0.32)
Net loss per share – diluted:  $(0.18)  $(0.07)  $(0.61)  $(0.32)

 

Significant pro forma adjustments incorporated into the pro forma results above include the recognition of additional amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets.

 

NOTE 5. GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of identifiable net assets of acquired businesses. Indefinite-lived intangibles are intangible assets whose useful lives are indefinite in that their lives extend beyond the foreseeable horizon – that is there is no foreseeable limit on the period of time over which they are expected to contribute to the cash flows of the reporting entity. The Company accounts for these items in accordance with FASB’s ASC 350 Intangibles – Goodwill and Other. This requires that goodwill and intangible assets having indefinite lives are not amortized but instead are reviewed annually, or more frequently as a result of an event or change in circumstances, for possible impairment with impaired assets written down to fair value. Goodwill, assembled workforce and Angoss trade names are considered indefinite-lived intangibles. The Company conducts its annual impairment test for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets during the fourth quarter of each fiscal year.

The following table presents the changes in the carrying amount of goodwill and indefinite lived intangibles (in thousands):

 

   Amount 
     
Balance as of September 30, 2017  $6,685 
Goodwill acquired during the year   11,527 
Indefinite lived trade names acquired during the year   3,200 
Balance as of June 30, 2018  $21,412 

 

Acquired Intellectual Property

 

Acquired intellectual property consists of software source code acquired through business combinations. The acquired intellectual property assets are being amortized to cost of software licenses using the straight-line method over the estimated life of the asset.

 

Acquired intellectual property, net, was comprised of the following at June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017 (in thousands):

 

June 30, 2018 
Identified  Weighted  Gross         
Intangible  Average  Carrying   Accumulated   Net Carrying 
Asset  Useful Life  Amount   Amortization   Amount 
   (In years)

   (In years)               
                   
Intellectual property  8  $11,621   $(10,734)  $887 

 

Amortization expense related to the acquired intellectual property assets charged to cost of software licenses for the three month period ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 was $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively. Amortization expense related to the acquired intellectual property assets charged to cost of software licenses for the nine month period ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 was $0.4 million and $1.0 million, respectively.

NOTE 6. FINANCING ARRANGEMENT

 

Revolving Line of Credit and Term Note

 

In connection with the Angoss Acquisition, on January 24, 2018, Datawatch entered into a new credit facility with a bank. The credit facility includes a $10.0 million term loan and a $5.0 million revolving line of credit, secured by substantially all of the assets of Datawatch, excluding intellectual property. The term loan, which was used to fund a portion of the Angoss Acquisition, bears interest at the prime rate plus 1%, is repayable based on a 48-month amortization schedule, matures on January 24, 2021, and is subject to prepayment penalties. The line of credit, which is intended to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, bears interest at the prime rate plus 0.5% and is due and payable on January 24, 2020. Commitment fees of $50,000 and $17,500 were paid for the term loan and line of credit, respectively. Availability under the line of credit is based on the amount of eligible accounts receivable from time to time. The credit facility agreement contains various conditions, covenants and representations with which the Company must be in compliance in order to borrow funds and to avoid an event of default.

 

As of June 30, 2018, the total amount of debt outstanding on the term loan was $9.1 million, net of $0.1 million in capitalized lender fees and debt issuance costs. The interest rate on the term loan as of June 30, 2018 was 6.00%.

 

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had no outstanding debt on the revolving line of credit.

 

Future principal payments as of June 30, 2018 related to the term note are as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Leases  

 

The Company leases various facilities and equipment in North America and overseas under non-cancelable operating leases which expire at various dates through 2022. The lease agreements generally provide for the payment of minimum annual rentals and pro-rata share of taxes and maintenance expenses. Rental expense for all operating leases was $0.3 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $0.8 million and $0.7 million for the nine month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. At June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, deferred rent totaled $0.3 million. Certain of the Company's facility leases include options to renew.

 

Royalties

 

Royalty expense included in cost of software license was $0.1 million for both the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and $0.4 million and $0.5 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Minimum royalty obligations were insignificant for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

 

Contingencies 

 

From time to time, the Company is subject to claims and may be party to actions that arise in the normal course of business. The Company is not party to any litigation that management believes will have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial condition or results of operations.

 

NOTE 8. INCOME TAXES

 

The provision for income taxes is based on the earnings or losses reported in the consolidated financial statements. The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the Company’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement carrying amounts and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect in the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company provides a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The Company follows the accounting guidance for uncertain tax positions. This guidance clarifies the accounting for income taxes by prescribing the minimum threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. It also provides guidance on derecognition, measurement, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.

On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. ASC 740 requires deferred tax assets and liabilities to be measured using the enacted rate for the period in which they are expected to reverse. The tax law change was enacted as of December 31, 2017. Accordingly, the reduction to the U.S. Federal corporate tax rate to 21% should be utilized to measure the U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities that will reverse in future periods. The Company's reduction to its net U.S. deferred tax asset of $6.8 million was offset by a corresponding reduction to its valuation allowance of $6.8 million. In addition, the new legislation includes a transition tax in which all foreign earnings are deemed to be repatriated to the U.S. and taxable at specified rates included within the tax legislation. The Company is in the process of calculating the impact of the transition tax. The analysis is complex and encompasses many years as far back as 1992. The Company is working with its foreign subsidiaries and their local tax service providers to gather historical information, including historical tax returns, in order to complete the calculation. Pursuant to Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118, the Company's measurement period, not to exceed one year, to calculate the tax impact of the tax law changes is still open. At this time, the Company does not anticipate a material impact due to the new tax law.

 

During the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $0.2 million and a tax provision of $17,000, respectively, primarily related to foreign withholding income taxes and estimated state taxes. During the three and nine months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a tax expense of $8,000 and $17,000, respectively, primarily related to estimated state taxes.

 

As part of the purchase accounting related to the Angoss Acquisition, the Company recorded a deferred tax liability of approximately $0.8 million related to indefinite lived tradename intangibles acquired as part of the purchase of Angoss. The Company is still in the process of collecting information and performing analysis related to this transaction and the measurement period for this transaction is still open.

 

The Company’s deferred tax assets include net operating loss carry forwards and tax credits that expire at different times through 2037. Significant judgment is required in determining the Company’s provision for income taxes, the carrying value of deferred tax assets and liabilities and the valuation allowance recorded against net deferred tax assets. Factors such as future reversals of deferred tax assets and liabilities, projected future taxable income, changes in enacted tax rates and the period over which the Company’s deferred tax assets will be recoverable are considered in making these determinations. Management does not believe the deferred tax assets are more likely than not to be realized and a full valuation allowance has been provided against the deferred tax assets in all jurisdictions at June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017.

 

At September 30, 2017, the Company had a cumulative tax liability of $0.1 million related to foreign tax exposure that could result in cash payments. There were no significant changes to the Company’s uncertain tax positions during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018.

 

NOTE 9. CALCULATION OF NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding plus additional common shares that would have been outstanding if dilutive potential common shares had been issued. For the purposes of this calculation, unexercised stock options and common shares in respect of unvested restricted stock awards are considered common equivalents in periods in which they have a dilutive effect. Unexercised stock options and common shares in respect of unvested restricted stock awards that are anti-dilutive are excluded from the calculation.

 

The following table presents the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share (in thousands, except per share data):  

 

   Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended 
   June 30,   June 30, 
   2018   2017   2018   2017 
                 
Net loss  $(2,281)  $(499)  $(6,980)  $(3,179)
Weighted-average number of common shares outstanding   12,639    12,106    12,448    12,023 
                     
Net loss per share  $(0.18)  $(0.04)  $(0.56)  $(0.26)

 

 13 

 

 

For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, all common equivalents were anti-dilutive as a result of the Company’s net loss position. Accordingly, all outstanding stock options and RSUs were excluded from the calculation of basic and diluted net loss per share for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

 

NOTE 10. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION 

 

The Company provides its employees, officers, consultants and directors with stock options, restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and other stock rights for common stock of the Company on a discretionary basis. All grants of options and RSUs are subject to the terms and conditions determined by the Compensation and Stock Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”), and generally vest over a three-year period and expire either seven or ten years from the date of grant. All awards granted during the nine months ended June 30, 2018 were granted under the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Equity Compensation and Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”). At June 30, 2018, there were 286,507 shares available for future issuance under the 2011 Plan.

 

Under the 2011 Plan, stock options are granted at exercise prices not less than the fair market value of the underlying common stock at the date of grant. All of the Company’s share-based awards are accounted for as equity instruments and there have been no liability-classified awards granted. Share-based compensation expense for share-based payment awards issued to employees and directors is measured based on the grant-date fair value of the award and recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award. Share-based compensation expense for share-based payment awards issued to non-employees is revalued each fiscal quarter based on the current fair value of the award and recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award.

 

Stock Options

 

The Company estimates the fair value of each stock option grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model. The Black-Scholes option valuation model incorporates assumptions as to stock price volatility, the expected life of options, a risk-free interest rate and dividend yield.

 

The following table is a summary of combined activity for all of the Company’s stock options:

Unvested awards expected to vest, June 30, 2018   -   $-    -   $- 

 

 14 

 

 

Restricted Stock Units

 

The fair value related to RSUs issued to employees and directors is calculated based on the closing stock price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grant. The fair value related to RSUs issued to non-employees is revalued each fiscal quarter, based on the closing stock price of the Company’s common stock on the last day of each fiscal quarter.

 

The following table presents non-vested RSU information for the nine months ended June 30, 2018:  

 

   Number of 
   RSUs 
   Outstanding 
     
Nonvested, September 30, 2017   928,066

Vested   (374,623)
Nonvested, June 30, 2018   890,373 

 

NOTE 11. SEGMENT INFORMATION AND REVENUE BY GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION

 

The Company has determined that it has only one reportable segment. The Company’s chief operating decision maker, its Chief Executive Officer, does not manage any part of the Company separately, and the allocation of resources and assessment of performance is based predominantly on the Company’s consolidated operations and operating results.

NOTE 12. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill And Other (Topic 350): Simplifying The Test For Goodwill Impairment, in an effort to simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill and the associated procedures to determine fair value. The guidance eliminates Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Instead, an entity should perform its annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount, and recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value, not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within that reporting period. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements, unless we have an impairment.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which requires entities to estimate all expected credit losses for certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables, held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. The updated guidance also expands the disclosure requirements to enable users of financial statements to understand the entity’s assumptions, models and methods for estimating expected credit losses. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within that reporting period. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is in the process of evaluating the potential impacts of this new guidance on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which is intended to simplify various aspects of how share-based payments are accounted for and presented in financial statements. The standard is effective prospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company elected to adopt the pronouncement on a prospective basis starting from the first quarter of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. As a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-09, we recognize the impact of forfeitures when they occur with no adjustment for estimated forfeitures and recognize excess tax benefits as a reduction of income tax expense regardless of whether the benefit reduces income taxes payable. At September 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $7.6 million of Federal and state net operating loss carryovers related to excess stock compensation. The Company has increased its net operating loss deferred tax asset with a corresponding increase to its valuation allowance.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which requires lessees to recognize, on the balance sheet, leases with a lease terms of greater than twelve months as a right-of-use asset and a lease liability. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the standard will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The ASU is the result of a joint project by the FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) to clarify the principles for recognizing revenue and to develop a common revenue standard for GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) that would: remove inconsistencies and weaknesses, provide a more robust framework for addressing revenue issues, improve comparability of revenue recognition practices across entities, jurisdictions, industries, and capital markets, improve disclosure requirements and resulting financial statements, and simplify the presentation of financial statements. The core principle of the new guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The ASU was initially effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. On July 9, 2015, the FASB voted to delay the effective date of the new revenue standard by one year, but to permit entities to choose to adopt the standard as of the original effective date.

 

 16 

 

 

We plan to elect the full retrospective adoption model, which will be effective for the Company beginning on October 1, 2018. Quarterly results in the 2019 fiscal year and comparative prior periods will be compliant with ASC Topic 606, with the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2019 being the first such Annual Report issued in compliance with ASC Topic 606.

 

We have begun to evaluate the effect the new revenue standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, but have not completed our evaluation and implementation processes. Based on evaluations to date, the Company expects the following impacts:

 

·Currently, we recognize revenue from subscription licenses ratably over the term of the agreement. Subscription licenses currently include a maintenance element. A portion of the arrangement consideration will be allocated from the subscription to the maintenance obligation based on the relative stand-alone selling price. The adoption of the new revenue standard will result in revenue for performance obligations recognized as they are satisfied. Therefore, revenue from the subscription license performance obligation is expected to be recognized upon delivery. Revenue from maintenance includes two performance obligations, upgrades and customer support, and is expected to be recognized on a straight-line basis over the contractual term.

 

·Currently, the Company allocates revenue to licenses under the residual method when it has Vendor Specific Objective Evidence (“VSOE”) for the remaining undelivered elements, which allocates any future credits or significant discounts entirely to the license. The adoption of ASC 606 will result in future credits, significant discounts, and material rights under ASC 606, generally allocated to all performance obligations based upon their relative selling price. Under ASC 606, additional license revenue from the reallocation of such arrangement considerations will be recognized when control is transferred to the client, which is generally upon delivery of the license.

 

·Additionally, we do not have VSOE, in software bundled arrangements involving fixed price services, which results in revenue being deferred in such instances until such time as VSOE exists for all undelivered elements or recognized ratably over the longest performance period. The adoption of the new revenue standard eliminates the requirement for VSOE and replaces it with the concept of a stand-alone selling price. Once the transaction price is allocated to each of the performance obligations based on their relative stand-alone selling prices, we can recognize revenue as the performance obligations are delivered, either at a point in time or over time. Under the new revenue standard, fixed price consulting revenue will be recognized over time based on the output method that reflects the Company’s performance on the contract. This will result in the acceleration of consulting revenue when compared to the current practice of ratable recognition over the longest contractual service period for consulting when there is a lack of VSOE.

 

·Under our current revenue recognition policy, we recognize royalty revenue in the period in which we receive royalty reports, which is typically in the quarter immediately following the quarter in which sales of royalty-bearing products occurred. Under the new standard, we will be required to make estimates of royalties earned in the current period and record royalty revenue based on those estimates.

 

·We have also assessed accounting for incremental costs to obtain a contract and costs incurred in fulfilling a contract. Based on preliminary results of the evaluation, which is still in process, we currently believe the most significant potential change to be accounting for commissions, as these incremental costs are expected to be capitalized and will be amortized over a period of time which could extend beyond the initial contract term.

 

·There will be a corresponding effect on tax liabilities in relation to all of the above impacts.

 

·Once we adopt the provisions of ASC Topic 606, we do not anticipate that our internal control framework will materially change, but rather that existing internal controls will be modified and augmented, as necessary, to consider our new revenue recognition policy effective October 1, 2018. As we implement the new standard, we will endeavor to develop internal controls to ensure that we adequately evaluate our contracts and accurately restate our prior-period operating results under ASC 606.

 

 17 

 

 

The foregoing expectations are subject to change as we complete our evaluation and implementation processes.

 

The Company has considered all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and does not believe the adoption of such pronouncements will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

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

  

General

 

We do not provide forecasts of our future financial performance. However, from time to time, information we provide or statements made by our employees may contain “forward-looking” information that involves risks and uncertainties. In particular, statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that are not historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements and are made under the safe harbor provisions of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. We disclaim any obligation, except as specifically required by law and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to publicly update or revise any such statements to reflect any change in our expectations or in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statements may be based, or that may affect the likelihood that actual results will differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Our actual results of operations and financial condition have varied and may in the future vary significantly from those stated in any forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such differences include, without limitation, the risks, uncertainties and other information discussed in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017, and subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, as well as the accuracy of our internal estimates of revenue and operating expense levels.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued disclosure guidance for “critical accounting policies.” The SEC defines “critical accounting policies” as those that require the application of management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and may change in subsequent periods.

 

Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 included in our previously filed Form 10-K. We note the addition of the following policy for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018:

 

Business Combinations

 

We allocate the fair value of purchase consideration to the tangible assets acquired, liabilities assumed and intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the fair value of purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill. When determining the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, management makes significant estimates and assumptions, especially with respect to intangible assets.

 

Critical estimates in valuing certain intangible assets include, but are not limited to, future expected cash flows from customer relationships and acquired developed technology and discount rates. Management’s estimates of fair value are based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable, but which are inherently uncertain and unpredictable and, as a result, actual results may differ materially from estimates. Other estimates associated with the accounting for acquisitions may change as additional information becomes available regarding the assets acquired and liabilities assumed.

OVERVIEW

 

Gross margin (excluding IP amortization expense) for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was 88%, as compared to 91% for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Cash and short-term investments were $13.6 million at June 30, 2018, down from $14.8 million at March 31, 2018 and $29.4 million at June 30, 2017, primarily reflecting the use of cash for normal business operations and the Angoss Acquisition, respectively. Days sales outstanding were 65 days at June 30, 2018, compared to 60 days at June 30, 2017.

 

Sales execution

 

Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 ended June 30, 2018 was $11.1 million, an increase of 22% from total revenue of $9.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017. License revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $6.9 million, a 40% increase from the $4.9 million recorded in the same quarter a year ago. Total revenue and license revenue both include results for Angoss from the date of its acquisition by Datawatch on January 30, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

 

Market awareness

 

Among the key highlights for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 were:

 

·Datawatch introduced a new messaging platform and branding to incorporate the addition of Angoss to its portfolio and the evolution of its self-service analytics and data visualization solutions. Data Intelligence to Fuel Your Business is a new governing brand idea that provides a foundation for marketing and sales.

 

·Datawatch was a featured presenter and sponsor at the Sirius Decisions Summit marketing technology conference. Datawatch along with its customer BitSight Technologies co-presented on self-service analytics in marketing and the advantages of data preparation for building marketing data insights.

 

·Datawatch highlighted its innovation leadership with the release of Monarch v15, with full PDF Report Trapping within Data Prep Studio, the ability to add comments on change history, and new connectors for Google AdWords, NetSuite, SharePoint and Vertica.

 

Innovation to product platform

 

During the first half of fiscal 2018, we released an update to Monarch as well as our Monarch Server products. Monarch Complete 14.3 includes the addition of a public data marketplace that allows users to enrich their data sets with public data directly from the user interface. Simplified data redaction, easier transformations and “point-and-click” vLookups are also included in the release as well as new enhancements allowing for complex calculations via a simple user interface. Monarch Swarm, soft-launched in 2017, was publicly introduced in the first quarter as the industry’s first team-driven, enterprise data preparation and socialization platform designed to speed collaboration and uphold governance practices. A centralized, cloud-ready solution, Monarch Swarm allows teams to create, find, access, validate and share governed, trustworthy data sets and models for true enterprise collaboration and faster, more strategic decision-making.

OFF BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS, CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES AND COMMITMENTS 

 

We lease various facilities and equipment in North America and overseas under non-cancelable operating leases which expire at various dates through 2022. The lease agreements generally provide for the payment of minimum annual rentals and pro-rata share of taxes and maintenance expenses. Rental expense for all operating leases was $0.3 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and was $0.8 million and $0.7 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Our software products are sold under warranty against certain defects in material and workmanship. If necessary, we would provide for the estimated cost of warranties based on specific warranty claims and claim history. However, we have never incurred significant expense under our product or service warranties. As a result, we believe our exposure related to these warranty agreements is minimal. Accordingly, we have no liabilities recorded for warranty claims as of June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017.

 

We enter into indemnification agreements in the ordinary course of business. Pursuant to these agreements, we generally agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and reimburse the indemnified party for losses suffered or incurred by the indemnified party, generally our customers, in connection with any patent, copyright or other intellectual property infringement claim by any third party with respect to our products. The term of these indemnification agreements is generally perpetual. The maximum potential amount of future payments we could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is unlimited. We have never incurred costs to defend lawsuits or settle claims related to these indemnification agreements. As a result, we believe our exposure related to these agreements is minimal. Accordingly, we have no liabilities recorded for these potential obligations as of June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017.

 

Certain of our agreements also provide for the performance of services at customer sites. These agreements may contain indemnification clauses, whereby we will indemnify the customer from any and all damages, losses, judgments, costs and expenses for acts of our employees or subcontractors resulting in bodily injury or property damage. The maximum potential amount of future payments we could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is unlimited; however, we have general and umbrella insurance policies that would enable us to recover a portion of any amounts paid. We have never incurred costs to defend lawsuits or settle claims related to these indemnification agreements. As a result, we believe our exposure related to these agreements is minimal.

As permitted under Delaware law, we have agreements with our directors whereby we will indemnify them for certain events or occurrences while the director is, or was, serving at our request in such capacity. The term of the director indemnification period is for the later of ten years after the date that the director ceases to serve in such capacity or the final termination of proceedings against the director as outlined in the indemnification agreement. The maximum potential amount of future payments we could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is unlimited; however, our director and officer insurance policy would enable us to recover a portion of any future amounts paid. As a result of our insurance policy coverage, we believe our exposure related to these indemnification agreements is minimal. Accordingly, we have no liabilities recorded for these potential obligations as of June 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017. 

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

We believe that our current cash balances will be sufficient to meet our cash needs for working capital and anticipated capital expenditures for at least the next twelve months. At June 30, 2018, we had $13.6 million of cash and cash equivalents as compared $30.5 million as of September 30, 2017, a decrease of $16.9 million. $3.7 million of cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2018 was located in foreign banks. At June 30, 2018, we had working capital of $4.9 million as compared to $23.4 million as of September 30, 2017.

 

We had a net loss of $7.0 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to net loss of $3.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2017. During the nine months ended June 30, 2018, $1.7 million of cash was used in our operations. During the nine months ended June 30, 2017, $1.6 million of cash was provided by our operations. During the nine months ended June 30, 2018, the main use of cash in operations was net loss adjusted for depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expense as well as the decrease in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other liabilities offset by the decrease in billed and unbilled accounts receivable, the decrease in prepaid and other expenses and the increase in deferred revenue. During the nine months ended June 30, 2017, the main source of cash from operations was an increase in deferred revenue, decreases in accounts receivable and prepaid expenses and other assets, offset by net loss adjusted for depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expense.

 

 26 

 

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $24.6 million and $0.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 was primarily related to the Angoss Acquisition as well as the purchase of property and equipment. Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2017 was related to the purchase of property and equipment. 

  

Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 was $9.4 million primarily related to the borrowings under the loan agreement to partially fund the Angoss Acquisition and cash received from stock option exercises. This was offset by principal repayments on outstanding debt. There was no cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2017.

 

We believe that our current operations have not been materially impacted by the effects of inflation.

 

Item 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK 

 

Derivative Financial Instruments, Other Financial Instruments, and Derivative Commodity Instruments 

 

At June 30, 2018, we did not participate in or hold any derivative financial instruments or commodity instruments. We hold no investment securities that possess significant market risk. 

 

Primary Market Risk Exposures 

 

Our primary market risk exposure is foreign currency exchange rate risk. International revenues and expenses are generally transacted by our foreign subsidiaries and are denominated in local currency. 20% and 14% of our revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and 17% and 13% of our revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, were from our foreign subsidiaries. In addition, 26% and 19% of our operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and 22% and 19% of our operating expenses for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, were from our foreign subsidiaries. 

 

We are exposed to foreign currency exchange rate risk inherent in conducting business globally in several currencies. In addition to Canadian Dollars as a result of the Angoss Acquisition, the most significant to our operations has historically been the British Pound. Our exposure to currency exchange rate fluctuations has been and is expected to continue to be modest due to the fact that the operations of our international subsidiaries are almost exclusively conducted in their respective local currencies, and dollar advances to our international subsidiaries, if any, are usually considered to be of a long-term investment nature. Accordingly, the majority of currency movements are reflected in our other comprehensive (loss) income. Foreign currency translation losses arising during the three months ended June 30, 2018 were $0.1 million. Foreign currency translation losses arising during the three months ended June 30, 2017 were $36,000. Foreign currency translation losses arising during the nine months ended June 30, 2018 were $0.2 million. Foreign currency translation gains arising during the nine months ended June 30, 2017 were $9,000. There are, however, certain situations where we will invoice customers in currencies other than our own. Such gains or losses from operating activity, whether realized or unrealized, are reflected in “Foreign currency transaction gain (loss)” section of the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and were gains of $0.1 for the three months ended June 30, 2018, gains of $24,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2017, gains of $0.3 for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 and losses of $0.1 for the nine months ended June 30, 2017.

 

Item 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 

 

Our management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, have evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report and have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective. They also concluded that there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, which have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting as of the end of the period covered by this report.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We are occasionally involved in legal proceedings and other claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business. We are not party to any litigation that we believe will have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Item 1A. RISK FACTORS 

 

In addition to the other information set forth in this report, the reader should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2017, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing the Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known or that it currently deems to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.
