|ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES||
NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Polar Power, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Washington as Polar Products, Inc. and in 1991 reincorporated in the State of California under the name Polar Power, Inc. In December 2016, Polar Power, Inc. reincorporated in the State of Delaware (the “Company”). The Company designs, manufactures and sells direct current, or DC, power systems to supply reliable and low-cost energy to off-grid, bad-grid and backup power, electric vehicle (EV) charging, and nano-grid applications. The Company’s products integrate DC generator, proprietary electronic control systems, lithium batteries and solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies to provide low operating cost and emissions for telecommunications, defense, automotive, nano-grid, EV charging and industrial markets.
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern. Such assumption contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded a net loss of $4,240 and used cash in operations of $4,532. As of September 30, 2022, we had a cash balance of $363, with borrowing capacity of $2,920, stockholders’ equity of $19,525 and a working capital of $18,445. Notwithstanding the net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2022, management projects adequate cash flow from operations and available line of credit through September 30, 2023, sufficient to ensure continuation of the Company as a going concern for at least one year from the date the Company’s September 30, 2022 financial statements are issued.
Historically, we have financed our operations through public and private sales of common stock, credit lines from financial institutions, and cash generated from operations to provide the Company the liquidity and capital resources to fund its operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements. The Company expects to continue investing in product development and sales and marketing activities and has taken action to improve our margins, and are continuing to build a strong back log. The long-term continuation of the Company’s business plan is dependent upon the generation of sufficient revenues from its products to offset expenses. In the event that the Company does not generate sufficient cash flows from operations and is unable to obtain funding, the Company will be forced to delay, reduce, or eliminate some or all of its discretionary spending, which could adversely affect the Company’s business prospects, ability to meet long-term liquidity needs or ability to continue operations.
Impact of COVID-19
The Company continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and related guidance from international and domestic authorities, including federal, state and local public health authorities. COVID-19 has had, and is likely to continue to have, a material and substantial adverse impact on the Company’s results of operations including, among others, an increase in employee absenteeism, a decrease in available and qualified employment candidates, and delays in sourcing of raw materials from suppliers. The Company’s business is directly dependent upon, and correlates closely with, the marketing levels and ongoing business activities of its existing customers and suppliers. In the event of a widespread economic downturn caused by COVID-19, the Company could experience a further reduction in current projects, longer sales and collection cycles, deferral or delay of purchase commitments for its DC power systems, a reduction in its manufacturing functionality, higher than normal inventory levels, a reduction in the availability of qualified labor, and increased price competition, all of which could substantially adversely affect its net revenues and its ability to remain a going concern.
The extent of the impact of COVID-19 on its operational and financial performance will depend on certain developments, including potential resurgence of the outbreak, the impact on its customers and sales cycles, the impact on its customer, employee or industry events, the impact on inflation and the effect on the supply chain, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted.
Effects of Inflation
The impact of inflation and changing prices on our raw materials and components during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 has reduced profits due to previous order commitments with fixed price contracts. Rapid changes in the global economy may cause additional significant spikes in inflation which may have an impact in our financial condition during 2022 and beyond. Because some of our contracts are at a fixed price, we face the risk that cost overruns or inflation may exceed, erode or eliminate our expected profit margin, or cause us to record a loss on certain projects or make us less competitive in certain markets. We are taking actions to manage the potential impacts of these matters and we will continue to assess the actual and expected impacts and the need for further action.
Basis of Presentation of Unaudited Financial Information
The unaudited condensed financial statements of the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements for reporting on Form 10-Q and Regulation S-K for scaled disclosures for smaller reporting companies. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. However, such information reflects all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments), which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of the Company’s financial position and results of operations. Results shown for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be obtained for a full fiscal year. The condensed balance sheet information as of December 31, 2021, was derived from the audited financial statements included in the Company’s financial statements as of that date included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 31, 2022. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with that Annual Report.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP 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. Material estimates relate to the assumptions made in determining reserves for uncollectible receivables, inventory reserves and returns, impairment analysis of long-term assets, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, income tax accruals, accruals for potential liabilities and warranty reserves and assumptions made in valuing equity instruments issued for services. Actual results may differ from those estimates.
The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”).
Substantially all of the Company’s revenue is derived from product sales. The Company also generates revenues from engineering, tech support, and rental services. Product or service revenue is recognized when performance obligations under the terms of a contract are satisfied, which occurs for the Company upon shipment or delivery of products or services to its customers based on written sales terms, which is also when control is transferred. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for transferring the products or services to a customer. The Company regularly reviews its customers’ financial positions to ensure that collectability is reasonably assured.
The Company also recognizes revenues from the rental of equipment. The Company’s rental revenues have not been significant to date and have accounted for less than one percent of total revenues for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.
Disaggregation of Net Sales
The following table shows the Company’s disaggregated net sales by product type:
SCHEDULE OF DISAGGREGATED NET SALES
The following table shows the Company’s disaggregated net sales by customer type:
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost determined on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, inventory has been reduced by cumulative write-downs totaling $3,133 and $3,500, respectively. If the Company’s estimates regarding net realizable value are inaccurate, including its estimates regarding its inventory, or changes in customer demand for the Company’s products in an unforeseen manner, the Company may experience additional write-downs of its inventory in the short-term.
As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, inventories consisted of the following:
SCHEDULE OF INVENTORIES NET
The Company provides limited warranties for parts and labor at no cost to its customers within a specified time period after the sale. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had accrued a liability for warranty reserve of $600 and $600, respectively, which are included in other accrued liabilities in the accompanying condensed balance sheets. The following is a tabular reconciliation of the product warranty liability, excluding the deferred revenue related to the Company’s warranty coverage:
SCHEDULE OF RECONCILIATION OF THE PRODUCT WARRANTY LIABILITY
The Company periodically issues stock-based compensation to officers, directors, employees and consultants for services rendered. Such issuances vest and expire according to terms established at the issuance date.
Stock-based payments to officers, directors, employees and consultants for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees, which include grants of employee stock options, are recognized in the financial statements based on their grant date fair values in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. Stock option grants to officers, directors, employees and consultants, which are generally time vested, are measured at the grant date fair value and depending on the conditions associated with the vesting of the award, compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line or graded basis over the vesting period. Recognition of compensation expense for non-employees is in the same period and manner as if the Company had paid cash for the services. The fair value of stock options granted is estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, which uses certain assumptions related to risk-free interest rates, expected volatility, expected life, and future dividends. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model could materially affect compensation expense recorded in future periods.
Financial Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value
The Company uses various inputs in determining the fair value of its investments and measures these assets on a recurring basis. Financial assets recorded at fair value in the balance sheets are categorized by the level of objectivity associated with the inputs used to measure their fair value.
Authoritative guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) defines the following levels directly related to the amount of subjectivity associated with the inputs to fair valuation of these financial assets:
The carrying amounts of financial assets and liabilities, such as cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments. The carrying values of the line of credit, notes payable approximate their fair values due to the fact that the interest rates on these obligations are based on prevailing market interest rates.
The Company operates in one segment for the manufacture and distribution of its products. In accordance with the “Segment Reporting” Topic of the ASC, the Company’s chief operating decision maker has been identified as the Chief Executive Officer and President, who reviews operating results to make decisions about allocating resources and assessing performance for the entire Company. Existing guidance, which is based on a management approach to segment reporting, establishes requirements to report selected segment information quarterly and to report annually entity-wide disclosures about products and services, major customers, and the countries in which the entity holds material assets and reports revenue. All material operating units qualify for aggregation under “Segment Reporting” due to their similar customer base and similarities in: economic characteristics; nature of products and services; and procurement, manufacturing and distribution processes. Since the Company operates in one segment, all financial information required by “Segment Reporting” can be found in the accompanying financial statements.
Cash. The Company maintains cash balances at four banks, with the majority held at one bank located in the U.S. At times, the amount on deposit exceeds the federally insured limits. Management believes that the financial institutions that hold the Company’s cash are financially sound and, accordingly, minimal credit risk exists.
Cash denominated in Australian Dollars with a U.S. Dollar equivalent of $10 and $9 at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, was held in an account at a financial institution located in Australia. Cash denominated in Romanian Leu with a U.S. Dollar equivalent of $19 and $23 at September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, was held in an account at a financial institution located in Romania.
Revenues. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, 87% of revenues were generated from the Company’s largest customer, a Tier-1 telecommunications wireless carrier in the U.S. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, 70% of revenues were generated from the Company’s largest customer, a Tier-1 telecommunications wireless carrier in the U.S. There was no other revenue from customers in excess of 10% of revenues in either period. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021, sales to telecommunications customers accounted for 90% and 92% of total revenues, respectively. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021, sales to international customers accounted for 7% and 12%, of total revenue, respectively.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, sales to the Company’s largest customer, a Tier-1 telecommunications wireless carrier in the U.S., accounted for 88% of total revenues. For the same period in 2021, sales to the Company’s largest customer, a Tier-1 telecommunications wireless carriers in the U.S., accounted for 67%. There was no other revenue from customers in excess of 10% of revenues in either period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021, sales to telecommunications customers accounted for 97% and 90% of total revenues, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021, sales to international customers accounted for 2% and 10%, of total revenue, respectively.
Accounts receivable. At September 30, 2022, 96% of the Company’s accounts receivable were from the Company’s largest customer. At December 31, 2021, the Company’s two largest receivable accounts represented 74% and 15% of the Company’s total accounts receivable. There was no other customer that accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s accounts receivable as of September 30, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
Accounts payable. At September 30, 2022, accounts payable to the Company’s three largest vendors represented 32%, 26% and 10%, of the Company’s accounts payable. On December 31, 2021, the three largest accounts payable accounts to the Company’s vendors represented 16%, 9%, and 9%.
Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing the net income applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if all dilutive potential common shares had been issued using the treasury stock method. Potential common shares are excluded from the computation when their effect is antidilutive. The dilutive effect of potentially dilutive securities is reflected in diluted net income per share if the exercise prices were lower than the average fair market value of common shares during the reporting period.
SCHEDULE OF DILUTED EARNINGS PER SHARE
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In September 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Credit Losses - Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASC 326”). The standard significantly changes how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets, including accounts and notes receivables. The standard will replace today’s “incurred loss” approach with an “expected loss” model, under which companies will recognize allowances based on expected rather than incurred losses. Entities will apply the standard’s provisions as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. ASU 2016-13 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2023, and early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06 (“ASU 2020-06”) “Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40).” ASU 2020-06 reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments by eliminating the cash conversion and beneficial conversion models. As a result, a convertible debt instrument will be accounted for as a single liability measured at its amortized cost as long as no other features require bifurcation and recognition as derivatives. By removing those separation models, the effective interest rate of convertible debt instruments will be closer to the coupon interest rate. Further, the diluted net income per share calculation for convertible instruments will require the Company to use the if-converted method. For contracts in an entity’s own equity, the type of contracts primarily affected by this update are freestanding and embedded features that are accounted for as derivatives under the current guidance due to a failure to meet the settlement conditions of the derivative scope exception. This update simplifies the related settlement assessment by removing the requirements to (i) consider whether the contract would be settled in registered shares, (ii) consider whether collateral is required to be posted, and (iii) assess shareholder rights. ASU 2020-06 is effective January 1, 2024, for the Company and the provisions of this update can be adopted using either the modified retrospective method or a fully retrospective method. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than January 1, 2021, including interim periods within that year. Effective January 1, 2021, the Company early adopted ASU 2020-06 and that adoption did not have an impact on its financial statements and the related disclosures.
In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04 “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation— Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815- 40) Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options” (“ASU 2021-04”). ASU 2021-04 provides guidance as to how an issuer should account for a modification of the terms or conditions or an exchange of a freestanding equity-classified written call option (i.e., a warrant) that remains classified after modification or exchange as an exchange of the original instrument for a new instrument. An issuer should measure the effect of a modification or exchange as the difference between the fair value of the modified or exchanged warrant and the fair value of that warrant immediately before modification or exchange and then apply a recognition model that comprises four categories of transactions and the corresponding accounting treatment for each category (equity issuance, debt origination, debt modification, and modifications unrelated to equity issuance and debt origination or modification). ASU 2021-04 is effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. An entity should apply the guidance provided in ASU 2021-04 prospectively to modifications or exchanges occurring on or after the effective date. The Company adopted ASU 2021-04 effective January 1, 2022. The adoption of ASU 2021-04 did not have any impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.
The Company’s management does not believe that there are other recently issued but not yet effective authoritative guidance, if currently adopted, would have a material impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.
