Basis of Presentation
The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of I.D. Systems, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Asset Intelligence, LLC (“AI”), I.D. Systems GmbH (“IDS GmbH”), I.D. Systems (UK) Ltd (formerly Didbox Ltd.) (“IDS Ltd”) and Keytroller, LLC (collectively referred to as “I.D. Systems”). All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) which are considered necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position of I.D. Systems as of September 30, 2019, the consolidated results of its operations for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2019, the consolidated change in stockholders’ equity for the three-month periods ended March 31, June 30, and September 30, 2018 and 2019 and the consolidated cash flows for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2019. The results of operations for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the year ended December 31, 2018 included in I.D. Systems’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year then ended.
Certain amounts included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the prior period’s consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to acquisition-related expenses to conform to the current period presentation for comparative purposes.
On January 30, 2019, I.D. Systems completed the acquisition (the “CarrierWeb US Acquisition”) of substantially all of the assets of CarrierWeb, L.L.C. (“CarrierWeb”), an Atlanta-based provider of real-time in-cab mobile communications technology, electronic logging devices, two-way refrigerated command and control, and trailer tracking. On July 30, 2019, I.D. Systems completed the acquisition (the “CarrierWeb Ireland Acquisition” and together with the CarrierWeb US Acquisition, the “CarrierWeb Acquisitions”) of substantially all of the assets of CarrierWeb Services Ltd. (“CarrierWeb Ireland”), an affiliate of CarrierWeb, from e*freightrac Holding B.V., the owner of the outstanding equity of CarrierWeb Ireland. The assets I.D. Systems acquired in the CarrierWeb Acquisitions will be integrated into the Company’s logistics visibility solutions and product line. The CarrierWeb Acquisitions allow the Company to offer a full complement of highly-integrated logistics technology solutions to its current customers and prospects and immediately add customers and subscriber units.
As of September 30, 2019, I.D. Systems had cash (including restricted cash) and cash equivalents of $5.9 million and working capital of $11.6 million. The Company’s primary sources of cash are cash flows from operating activities and the Company’s holdings of cash and cash equivalents from the sale of common stock. To date, the Company has not generated sufficient cash flows solely from operating activities to fund its operations.
The Company believes that its available working capital, anticipated level of future revenues, expected cash flows from operations and available borrowings under its revolving credit facility with Bank Hapoalim B.M. (see Note 23) will provide sufficient funds to cover capital requirements through at least November 14, 2020.
