Description of the Company


The Company is a global leader of Internet-of-Things (“IoT”) solutions providing valuable business intelligence for managing high-value enterprise assets that improve operational efficiencies.


I.D. Systems, Inc. (“I.D. Systems”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware in 1993. PowerFleet, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Delaware in February 2019 for the purpose of effectuating the transactions (the “Transactions”) pursuant to which the Company acquired Pointer Telocation Ltd. (“Pointer”) and commenced operations on October 3, 2019. Upon the closing of the Transactions, PowerFleet became the parent entity of I.D. Systems and Pointer.


Impact of COVID-19 and Supply Chain Disruptions


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, 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 of the pandemic on our business and financial results will depend largely on the future developments that cannot be accurately predicted at this time, including the duration of the spread of the outbreak and COVID-19 variants, the extent and effectiveness of containment actions and vaccination campaigns, 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.


In addition, the Company has experienced a significant impact to its supply chain given COVID-19 and the related global semiconductor chip shortage, including delays in supply chain deliveries, extended lead times and shortages of certain key components, some raw material cost increases and slowdowns at certain production facilities. As a result of these supply chain issues, the Company has had to increase its volume of inventory to ensure supply. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2022, the Company incurred supply chain constraint expenses which lowered its gross margins and decreased its profitability. The supply chain disruptions and the related global semiconductor chip shortage have delayed and may continue to delay the timing of some orders and expected deliveries of the Company’s products. If the impact of the supply chain disruptions are more severe than the Company expects, it could result in longer lead times, inventory supply challenges and further increased costs, all of which could result in the deterioration of the Company’s results, potentially for a longer period than currently anticipated.


As of the date of these unaudited consolidated financial statements, the full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic and the related supply chain issues 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 31, 2022, the consolidated results of its operations for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2022, the consolidated change in stockholders’ equity for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2022, and the consolidated cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2022. The results of operations for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 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, 2021 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year then ended.





As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash (including restricted cash) and cash equivalents of $20,867 and working capital of $40,504. 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, the Company’s subsidiaries, PowerFleet Israel Ltd. (“PowerFleet Israel”) and Pointer, are party to a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with Bank Hapoalim B.M. (“Hapoalim”), pursuant to which Hapoalim provided 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 the Company’s 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 under the revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2022. 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 its 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 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 Underwritten Public Offering were made pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement.


Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is significant uncertainty surrounding the potential impact on our results of operations and cash flows. During 2021 and 2022, we proactively took 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 10, 2023.
