NOTE 1 - DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPANY AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Description of the Company

 

On October 3, 2019, PowerFleet, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, “PowerFleet,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) completed the acquisition of Pointer Telocation Ltd. (the “Transactions”), as a result of which I.D. Systems, Inc. (“I.D. Systems”) and PowerFleet Israel Ltd. (“PowerFleet Israel”) each became direct, wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company and Pointer Telocation Ltd. (“Pointer”) became an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Prior to the Transactions, PowerFleet had no material assets, did not operate any business and did not conduct any activities, other than those incidental to its formation and the Transactions. I.D. Systems was determined to be the accounting acquirer in the Transactions. As a result, the historical financial statements of I.D. Systems for the periods prior to the Transactions are considered to be the historical financial statements of PowerFleet and the results of Pointer have been included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements from the date of the Transactions.

 

The Company is a global leader and provider of subscription-based wireless Internet-of-Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions for securing, controlling, tracking, and managing high-value enterprise assets such as industrial trucks, tractor trailers, containers, cargo, and vehicles and truck fleets.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

The global outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus, COVID-19, and mitigation efforts by governments to attempt to control its spread, has resulted in significant economic disruption and continues to adversely impact the broader global economy. The extent of the impact on the Company’s business and financial results will depend largely on future developments that cannot be accurately predicted at this time, including the duration of the spread of the outbreak, the extent and effectiveness of containment actions and the impact of these and other factors on capital and financial markets and the related impact on the financial circumstances of our employees, customers and suppliers. As of the date of these unaudited consolidated financial statements, the full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may materially impact the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition is uncertain.

 

Basis of presentation

 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries. 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 the Company as of March 30, 2021, the consolidated results of its operations for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2021, the consolidated change in stockholders’ equity for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2021 and the consolidated cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 30, 2020 and 2021. The results of operations for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 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, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year then ended.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation for comparative purposes. These reclassifications had no effect on the previously reported results of operations.

 

Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $40,951 and working capital of $53,241. The Company’s primary sources of cash are cash flows from operating activities, its holdings of cash, cash equivalents and investments from the sale of its capital stock and borrowings under its credit facility. To date, the Company has not generated sufficient cash flows solely from operating activities to fund its operations.

 

In addition, PowerFleet Israel and Pointer are party to a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Bank Hapoalim B.M. (“Hapoalim”), pursuant to which Hapoalim agreed to provide PowerFleet Israel with two senior secured term loan facilities in an aggregate principal amount of $30,000 (comprised of two facilities in the aggregate principal amount of $20,000 and $10,000) and a five-year revolving credit facility to Pointer in an aggregate principal amount of $10,000. The proceeds of the term loan facilities were used to finance a portion of the cash consideration payable in our acquisition of Pointer. The proceeds of the revolving credit facility may be used by Pointer for general corporate purposes. The Company has not borrowed under the revolving credit facility since its’ inception and does not have any borrowings as of March 31, 2021. See Note 11 for additional information.

 

The Company has on file a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 that was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 27, 2019. Pursuant to the shelf registration statement, the Company may offer to the public from time to time, in one or more offerings, up to $60,000 of our common stock, preferred stock, warrants, debt securities, and units, or any combination of the foregoing, at prices and on terms to be determined at the time of any such offering. The specific terms of any future offering will be determined at the time of the offering and described in a prospectus supplement that will be filed with the SEC in connection with such offering.

 

On May 14, 2020, the Company entered into an equity distribution agreement for an “at-the-market offering” program (the “ATM Offering”) with Canaccord Genuity LLC (“Canaccord”) as sales agent, pursuant to which we issued and sold an aggregate of 810 shares of common stock for approximately $4,200 in gross proceeds. The Company terminated the equity distribution agreement effective as of August 14, 2020.

 

On February 1, 2021, the Company closed an underwritten public offering (the “Underwritten Public Offering”) of 4,428 shares of common stock (which included the full exercise of the underwriters’ over allotment option) for gross proceeds of approximately $28,800, before deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. The offer and sale of common stock in the ATM Offering and the Underwritten Public Offering were made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement.

 

Because of the recent outbreak of COVID-19, there is significant uncertainty surrounding the potential impact on our results of operations and cash flows. We are proactively taking steps to increase available cash on hand including, but not limited to, targeted reductions in discretionary operating expenses and capital expenditures.

 

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 Hapoalim will provide sufficient funds to cover capital requirements through at least May 12, 2022.
