SHARPS COMPLIANCE CORP. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND BACKGROUND

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial transactions and accounts of Sharps Compliance Corp. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Sharps Compliance, Inc. of Texas (dba Sharps Compliance, Inc.), Sharps e-Tools.com, Inc. (“Sharps e-Tools”), Sharps Manufacturing, Inc., Sharps Environmental Services, Inc. (dba Sharps Environmental Services of Texas, Inc.) and Sharps Safety, Inc. (collectively, “Sharps” or the “Company”).  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial information and with instructions to Form 10-Q and, accordingly, do not include all information and footnotes required under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, these interim condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2015, the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, cash flows for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, and stockholders’ equity for the nine months ended March 31, 2015. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending June 30, 2015.  These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014.

NOTE 3 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Revenue Recognition The Company recognizes revenue from product sales when goods are shipped or delivered, and title and risk of loss pass to the customer except for those sales via multiple-deliverable arrangements. Provisions for certain rebates, product returns and discounts to customers are accounted for as reductions in sales in the same period the related sales are recorded. Product discounts granted are based on the terms of arrangements with direct, indirect and other market participants, as well as market conditions, including prices charged by competitors. Rebates are estimated based on contractual terms, historical experience, trend analysis and projected market conditions in the various markets served.  Service agreements which include a vendor managed inventory program include terms that meet the “bill and hold” criteria and as such are recognized when the order is completed and segregated in the Company’s warehouse.

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with guidance on revenue recognition of multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements.  Under this guidance, certain products offered by the Company have revenue producing components that are recognized over multiple delivery points (Sharps Recovery System™ (formerly the Sharps Disposal by Mail Systems®) and various TakeAway Environmental Return Systems™ referred to as “Mailbacks” and Sharps® Pump and Asset Return Boxes, referred to as “Pump Returns”) and can consist of up to three separate elements, or units of measure, as follows: (1) the sale of the compliance and container system, (2) return transportation and (3) treatment service.

In accordance with the relative selling price methodology, an estimated selling price is determined for all deliverables that qualify for separate units of accounting.  The actual consideration received in a multiple-deliverable arrangement is then allocated to the units based on their relative sales price.  The selling price for the transportation revenue and the treatment revenue utilizes third party evidence.  The Company estimates the selling price of the compliance and container system based on the product and services provided including compliance with local, state and Federal laws, adherence to stringent manufacturing and testing requirements, safety to the patient and the community as well as storage and containment capabilities.

Revenue for the sale of the compliance and container is recognized upon delivery to the customer, at which time the customer takes title and assumes risk of ownership.  Transportation revenue is recognized when the customer returns the compliance and container system and the container has been received at the Company’s owned or contracted facilities.  The compliance and container system is mailed or delivered by an alternative logistics provider to the Company’s owned or contracted facilities.  Treatment revenue is recognized upon the destruction or conversion and proof of receipt and treatment having been performed on the container.  Since the transportation element and the treatment elements are undelivered services at the point of initial sale of the compliance and container, transportation and treatment revenue is deferred until the services are performed.  The current and long-term portions of deferred revenues are determined through regression analysis and historical trends.  Furthermore, through regression analysis of historical data, the Company has determined that a certain percentage of all compliance and container systems sold may not be returned.  Accordingly, a portion of the transportation and treatment elements are recognized at the point of sale.
 
Income Taxes :  The liability method is used in accounting for deferred income taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The establishment of valuation allowances and development of projected annual effective tax rates requires significant judgment and is impacted by various estimates. Both positive and negative evidence, as well as the objectivity and verifiability of that evidence, is considered in determining the appropriateness of recording a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

Accounts Receivable :  Accounts receivable consist primarily of amounts due to the Company from our normal business activities.   Accounts receivable balances are determined to be delinquent when the amount is past due based on the contractual terms with the customer.  The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts to reflect the expected uncollectibility of accounts receivable based on past collection history and specific risks identified among uncollected accounts.  Accounts receivable are charged to the allowance for doubtful accounts when the Company determines that the receivable will not be collected and/or when the account has been referred to a third party collection agency. The Company has a history of minimal uncollectible accounts.

NOTE 4 – RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In May 2014, guidance for revenue recognition was issued which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements currently followed by the Company. The new guidance provides for a single five-step model to be applied in determining the amount and timing of the recognition of revenue related to contracts with customers. The new standard also requires additional financial statement disclosures that will enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows relating to customer contracts. Companies have an option to use either a retrospective approach or cumulative effect adjustment approach to implement the standard. There is no option for early adoption. The provisions of the new guidance are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 (effective July 1, 2017 for the Company), including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on its financial statements as well as determining which transition method to implement.

NOTE 5 - INCOME TAXES

The establishment of valuation allowances and development of projected annual effective tax rates requires significant judgment and is impacted by various estimates. Both positive and negative evidence, as well as the objectivity and verifiability of that evidence, is considered in determining the appropriateness of recording a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. Under generally accepted accounting principles, the valuation allowance has been recorded to reduce the Company’s net deferred tax asset to an amount that is more likely than not to be realized and is based upon the uncertainty of the realization of certain federal and state deferred tax assets related to net operating loss carryforwards and other tax attributes.  The Company’s net deferred tax assets have been fully reserved by a tax valuation allowance.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was (23.4%) and (3.6%), respectively, reflecting estimated state income taxes. The Company’s tax benefit associated with taxable losses during the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was offset by a deferred tax valuation allowance.

NOTE 6 - NOTES PAYABLE AND LONG-TERM DEBT

On April 9, 2015, the Company entered into a credit agreement with a commercial bank (“Credit Agreement”).  The Credit Agreement, which replaces, in its entirety, the Company’s prior credit agreement, which was executed effective January 28, 2014 with the same commercial bank (“Prior Credit Agreement”), provides for a two-year, $9.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which may be utilized as follows:  (i) $4.0 million for working capital, letters of credit (up to $500,000) and general corporate purposes and (ii) $5.0 million for acquisitions.  Indebtedness under the Credit Agreement is secured by the Company’s accounts receivable and inventory with advances outstanding under the working capital portion of the credit facility at any time limited to a Borrowing Base (as defined in the Credit Agreement) equal to 80% of eligible accounts receivable plus 50% of eligible inventory.  Advances under the acquisition portion of the credit facility are limited to 75% of the purchase price of an acquired company and convert to a five-year term note.  Borrowings bear interest at WSJ Prime (for the working capital line) and WSJ Prime plus 0.25% (for the acquisition line), which we estimate to be approximately 3.25% and 3.50%, respectively, as of March 31, 2015.  The Company pays a fee of 0.25% per annum on the unused amount of the line of credit.

The Prior Credit Agreement, which was effective through April 9, 2015, provided for a two-year, $3.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which could be utilized for working capital, letters of credit (up to $500,000) and general corporate purposes.  As of March 31, 2015, the Company had no outstanding borrowings, other than $335 thousand in letters of credit, which left $2.7 million of credit available under the Prior Credit Agreement.
 
The Credit Agreement contains affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, require the Company to maintain a minimum level of tangible net worth of $12.5 million, minimum liquidity of $7.0 million, and a minimum debt service coverage ratio of not less than 1.15 to 1.00.  The Credit Agreement, which expires on April 9, 2017, also contains customary events of default which, if uncured, may terminate the Credit Agreement and require immediate repayment of all indebtedness to the lenders.    The Prior Credit Agreement contained affirmative and negative covenants, among other things, that required the Company to maintain a minimum tangible net worth of $10.5 million and minimum liquidity of $5.0 million.  The Company is required to be and is in compliance with all the financial covenants under the Credit Agreement and Prior Credit Agreement as of March 31, 2015.

NOTE 7 – STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

Stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the employee’s requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the equity grant).  Reductions in taxes payable resulting from tax deductions that exceed the recognized tax benefit associated with compensation expense (excess tax benefits) are classified as financing cash flows and as an increase to additional paid in capital.   During the three and nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, stock-based compensation amounts are as follows (in thousands):

For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, excess tax benefits have been eliminated by the valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets.

NOTE 8 - EARNINGS PER SHARE

Earnings per share (“EPS”) are measured at two levels: basic per share and diluted per share. Basic per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares after considering the additional dilution related to common stock options and restricted stock. In computing diluted earnings per share, the outstanding common stock options are considered dilutive using the treasury stock method.

In accordance with guidance related to share-based payment arrangements, the Company’s restricted stock awards are treated as outstanding for earning per share calculations since these shares have full voting rights and are entitled to participate in dividends declared on common shares, if any, and undistributed earnings.  As participating securities, the shares of restricted stock are included in the calculation of basic EPS using the two-class method.  For the periods presented, the amount of earnings allocated to the participating securities was not material.

*Represents the net impact of the revenue recognition adjustment required to arrive at reported generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) revenue.  Customer billings include all invoiced amounts associated with products shipped during the period reported.  GAAP revenue includes customer billings as well as numerous adjustments necessary to reflect, (i) the deferral of a portion of current period sales and (ii) recognition of certain revenue associated with products returned for treatment and destruction.  The difference between customer billings and GAAP revenue is reflected in the Company’s balance sheet as deferred revenue.  See Note 3 “Revenue Recognition” in “Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements”.

This quarter-to-date table contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with GAAP, including customer billings information.  The Company believes this information is useful to investors and other interested parties as customer billings represents all invoiced amounts associated with products shipped during the period reported. Such information should not be considered as a substitute for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliation of this information to the most comparable GAAP measures is included above.
 
The increase in billings was primarily attributable to increased billings in the Government ($0.6 million), Professional ($0.5 million), and Pharmaceutical Manufacturer ($0.2 million) markets. The increase in billings was partially offset by decreased billings in the Retail ($0.1 million), Home Health Care ($0.2 million) and Environmental ($0.3 million) markets.  The increase in Government market billings is primarily due to sales of the Company’s TakeAway Medication Recovery System envelopes and MedSafe solutions.  The increase in Professional market billings is primarily due to continued focus on inside sales initiatives and promotional activities around educating doctors, dentists, veterinarians, and other healthcare professionals on the favorable economics and convenience of the Sharps Recovery System as compared to the traditional pick-up service for the small quantity generator sector. The increase in Pharmaceutical Manufacturer market billings is primarily due to the Company’s filling an order for new inventory builds for an existing customer.  Moving forward, during calendar year 2015 and through the first quarter of calendar 2017, the Company expects to launch three additional patient support programs for new drug therapies.  The decreases in the Retail, Home Health Care, and Environmental market billings was primarily due to the timing of orders and projects.

Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $4.5 million was 73.1% of revenues.  Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014 of $4.1 million was 74.6% of revenues.  The higher gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of 26.9% (versus 25.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2014) was due to leverage gained from higher revenues.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expense for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was $2.4 million and $2.2 million, respectively. SG&A for the three months ended March 31, 2015 includes increased sales and marketing related spending compared to the prior period.  SG&A as a percentage of sales decreased to 39.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to 40.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

The Company reported an operating loss of $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to an operating loss of $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014.   The operating loss was (13.1%) of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to (16.8%) of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2014.  The decrease in operating loss is a result of improved gross margin as a result of greater operating leverage gained from higher revenues (discussed above).

The Company reported a loss before income taxes of ($0.8) million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 versus loss before income taxes of ($0.9) million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in the loss before income taxes is a result of a lower operating loss.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was (1.6%) and (0.6%), respectively, reflecting estimated state income taxes. The Company’s net deferred tax assets have been fully reserved by a tax valuation allowance. The Company’s tax benefit associated with taxable losses during the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was offset by a deferred tax valuation allowance.

The Company reported net loss of ($0.8) million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to net loss of ($0.9) million for the three months ended March 31, 2014.  The decrease in net loss is a result of lower loss before income taxes (discussed above).

The Company reported diluted loss per share of ($0.05) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 versus diluted loss per share of ($0.06) for the three months ended March 31, 2014.  The decrease in diluted loss per share is a result of lower net loss in the three months ended March 31, 2015 versus the prior year (discussed above).
 
NINE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2015 AS COMPARED TO NINE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2014

Total revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 of $21.9 million increased by $2.4 million, or 12.5%, over the total revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 of $19.5 million. Billings by market are as follows (in thousands):

This year-to-date table contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with GAAP, including customer billings information.  The Company believes this information is useful to investors and other interested parties as customer billings represents all invoiced amounts associated with products shipped during the period reported. Such information should not be considered as a substitute for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliation of this information to the most comparable GAAP measures is included above.

The increase in billings was primarily attributable to increased billings in the Retail ($1.2 million), Pharmaceutical Manufacturer ($0.9 million), Professional ($0.8 million), and Government ($0.6 million) markets. The increase in billings was partially offset by decreased billings in the Home Health Care ($0.4 million) and Environmental ($0.3 million) markets. The increase in Retail market billings is primarily due to a strong flu season driving increased demand for flu shots administered in a retail setting. The increase in Pharmaceutical market billings is due to large orders for new inventory builds for existing customers plus initial supply orders for two new patient support programs.  The increase in Professional market billings is primarily due to the Company’s continued focus on inside sales initiatives and promotional activities around educating doctors, dentists, veterinarians, and other healthcare professionals on the favorable economics and convenience of the Sharps Recovery System as compared to the traditional pick-up service for the small quantity generator sector.  The increase in Government market billings is due to increased orders for the Company’s new unused medication disposal solutions including the TakeAway Medication Recovery System and MedSafe solutions which have been approved for purchase and use by several government agencies.  The decrease in Home Health Care market billings is due to timing of distributor purchases.  The decrease in Environmental market billings is due to timing of projects.

Cost of revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 of $14.7 million was 67.0% of revenues.  Cost of revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 of $13.1 million was 67.0% of revenues.  The gross margin was 33.0% for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 which is consistent with 33.0% for the nine months ended March 31, 2014.

SG&A expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was $7.1 million and $6.8 million, respectively.  SG&A for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 includes increased sales and marketing related spending compared to the prior period.  SG&A as a percentage of sales decreased to 32.6% for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 as compared to 34.7% for the nine months ended March 31, 2014. SG&A for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 was negatively impacted by legal expenses of $0.3 million associated with the claim to the CDC related to the termination of a government contract and severance costs of $0.1 million for a former officer of the Company.
 
The Company recorded an operating loss of ($0.1) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 compared to operating loss of ($0.7) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014.   The operating loss was (0.6%) of revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 compared to (3.5%) of revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2014.  The decrease in operating loss is a result of higher billings in the nine months ended March 31, 2015 (discussed above).

The Company reported loss before income taxes of ($0.1) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 versus loss before income taxes of ($0.7) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in the loss before income taxes is a result of a lower operating loss (discussed above).

The Company’s effective tax rate for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was (23.4%) and (3.6%), respectively, reflecting estimated state income taxes. The Company’s tax benefit associated with taxable losses during the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was offset by a deferred tax valuation allowance.

The Company reported net loss of ($0.1) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 compared to net loss of ($0.7) million for the nine months ended March 31, 2014.  The net loss is a result of lower loss before income taxes (discussed above).

The Company reported diluted loss per share of ($0.01) for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 versus diluted loss per share of ($0.05) for the nine months ended March 31, 2014.  The decrease in diluted loss per share is a result of lower net loss in the nine months ended March 31, 2015 versus the prior year (discussed above).
 
PROSPECTS FOR THE FUTURE

The Company continues to take advantage of the many opportunities in the markets served as professional offices, retail pharmacies and clinics, communities, assisted living and long-term care facilities, home healthcare companies, consumers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, government agencies, health care facilities, individual self-injectors and commercial organizations become more aware of alternatives to the traditional methods of management of medical sharps waste, used healthcare materials and unused dispensed medications.

The Company’s growth strategies are focused on the Retail, Pharmaceutical, Professional, Assisted Living, Home Health Care and Environmental markets. The Company believes its growth opportunities are supported by:

· An increase in the number of used needles improperly disposed of outside the large healthcare setting and into the solid waste system to 7.8 billion each year (tripled volume over the past ten years) and an increase in the number of self-injectors in the country to 13.5 million over the same period;

· An estimated 800,000 doctors, dentists, veterinarians, clinics, tattoo parlors and other businesses in the country that generate smaller quantities of medical waste, including used syringes to whom we offer a lower cost alternative to the traditional pick-up service.  The Company addresses this market from two directions: (i) field sales which focuses on larger dollar and nation-wide opportunities where we can integrate the route-based pick-up service along with our mailback solutions to create a comprehensive medical waste management offering and (ii) inside and online sales which focus on the individual or small group professional offices;

· An estimated 40% of the four billion dispensed medication prescriptions which go unused every year in the United States generating an estimated 200 million pounds of unused medication waste;

· The pace of regulation of sharps and unused dispensed medications disposal which is gaining momentum at both the state and federal level - as of March 31, 2015, approximately 46 percent of U.S. citizens live in states that have enacted legislation or strict guidelines mandating the proper disposal of home generated used syringes while 67 percent live in states that have enacted or proposed legislation mandating the proper disposal of home generated dispensed unused medications. Further, since 2009, the federal government, nine states and several counties have introduced legislation requiring manufacturer responsibility for consumer generated unused medications.  State regulatory agencies are also addressing this issue within the regulated industry.  Multiple states now require healthcare providers to avoid sewer and trash disposal of non-hazardous unused medications within their facilities.  States such as California, Washington and Minnesota have required assessment and proper treatment by a medical waste disposal company for years.  However, other states such as Colorado and Florida are now requiring even small healthcare providers to segregate unused medications for proper disposal.  In addition, states are beginning to more closely scrutinize generators returning through reverse distribution unused medications that are actually waste pharmaceuticals and should be disposed of as such;
 
· The number of U.S. retail clinics is projected to increase significantly, as much as 20%-25% per year, driven by the increasing demand of newly insured patients under healthcare reform, patients looking for more convenient care and retail pharmacies increasing the variety and volume of healthcare services they provide.  According to the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”), 22% of flu shots for adults were administered in a retail clinic with the trend expected to increase.  In addition to the continued growth in the flu shot business, there are also growth opportunities for more primary care in the retail or alternative site setting and correspondingly growth opportunities for the Company based on its significant presence in the retail market.  A recent study shows that Americans visit retail clinics 10 million times a year, which represents only 2% of “all primary care patient encounters”;

· The changing demographics of the U.S. population - one out of five Americans will be 65 years or older by 2030, which will increase the need for cost-effective medical waste management solutions especially in the home healthcare and assisted living markets;

· The change in delivery of healthcare (more health care being administered in an alternate site) as well as uncertainty created by the current state of healthcare – facts which are driving more healthcare providers to increase efficiencies and reduce costs;

· Over the past two years, the Company has developed a network of medical and hazardous waste service providers including those with route based pick-up services which allows us to serve the entire U.S. medical and hazardous waste market.  We offer clients a blended product portfolio to effectively target prospective customers with multi-site and multi-sized locations including those that generate larger quantities of medical waste.  The network has had a significant positive impact on our pipeline of sales opportunities – over 60% of this pipeline is attributable to opportunities providing comprehensive waste management service offerings where both the mailback and pick-up service are integrated into the offering;

· New solution offerings including Medsafe ® ™ (designed for safe collection, transportation, and proper disposal of unwanted and expired prescription medications including controlled substances), the Complete Needle™ Collection and Disposal System   (designed for the traditional under-served home self-injector), the TakeAway line of products for unused medications (including TakeAway Medication Recovery System™ and the TakeAway Environmental Return System™), the Medical/Professional TakeAway Recovery System and enhanced patient support programs with pharmaceutical manufacturers;

· The Company’s strong financial position with a cash balance of $16.2 million and no debt as of March 31, 2015.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Cash Flow

Cash and cash equivalents increased by $2.4 million to $16.2 million at March 31, 2015 from $13.7 million at June 30, 2014. The increase in cash and cash equivalents is primarily due to the receipt of the legal settlement of $1.5 million and a decrease in accounts receivable of $1.6 million, partially offset by an increase in inventory of $1.0 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2015.

Accounts receivable decreased by $1.6 million to $3.1 million at March 31, 2015 from $4.7 million at June 30, 2014. The decrease is due to timing of billings and collections.

Inventory increased by $1.0 million to $2.3 million at March 31, 2015 from $1.3 million at June 30, 2014. The increase in inventory is due to timing of sales and adjustment of inventory levels to facilitate customer orders and increased demand.

Working capital increased $0.3 million to $18.2 million at March 31, 2015 from $17.9 million at June 30, 2014 due to the changes described above.

Property, plant and equipment, net decreased $0.1 million to $3.8 million at March 31, 2015 from $3.9 million at June 30, 2014.  The decrease is mainly attributable to depreciation expense of $0.6 million, partially offset by capital expenditures of $0.5 million.  The capital expenditures are attributable primarily to treatment facility improvements of $0.2 million and investment in MedSafe related assets of $0.3 million.

Stockholders’ equity increased by $0.3 million to $22.2 million at March 31, 2015 from $21.9 million at June 30, 2014.  This increase is primarily attributable to stock-based compensation of $0.4 million, partially offset by the net loss for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 of ($0.1) million.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company was not a party to any off-balance sheet transactions as defined in Item 303 of Regulation S-K for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and the year-ended June 30, 2014.

Credit Facility

On April 9, 2015, the Company entered into a credit agreement with a commercial bank (“Credit Agreement”).  The Credit Agreement, which replaces, in its entirety, the Company’s prior credit agreement, which was executed effective January 28, 2014 with the same commercial bank (“Prior Credit Agreement”), provides for a two-year, $9.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which may be utilized as follows:  (i) $4.0 million for working capital, letters of credit (up to $500,000) and general corporate purposes and (ii) $5.0 million for acquisitions.  Indebtedness under the Credit Agreement is secured by the Company’s accounts receivable and inventory with advances outstanding under the working capital portion of the credit facility at any time limited to a Borrowing Base (as defined in the Credit Agreement) equal to 80% of eligible accounts receivable plus 50% of eligible inventory.  Advances under the acquisition portion of the credit facility are limited to 75% of the purchase price of an acquired company and convert to a five-year term note.  Borrowings bear interest at WSJ Prime (for the working capital line) and WSJ Prime plus 0.25% (for the acquisition line), which we estimate to be approximately 3.25% and 3.50%, respectively, as of March 31, 2015.  The Company pays a fee of 0.25% per annum on the unused amount of the line of credit.

The Prior Credit Agreement, which was effective through April 9, 2015, provided for a two-year, $3.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which could be utilized for working capital, letters of credit (up to $500,000) and general corporate purposes.  As of March 31, 2015, the Company had no outstanding borrowings, other than $335 thousand in letters of credit, which left $2.7 million of credit available under the Prior Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement contains affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, require the Company to maintain a minimum level of tangible net worth of $12.5 million, minimum liquidity of $7.0 million, and a minimum debt service coverage ratio of not less than 1.15 to 1.00.  The Credit Agreement, which expires on April 9, 2017, also contains customary events of default which, if uncured, may terminate the Credit Agreement and require immediate repayment of all indebtedness to the lenders.    The Prior Credit Agreement contained affirmative and negative covenants, among other things, that required the Company to maintain a minimum tangible net worth of $10.5 million and minimum liquidity of $5.0 million. The Company is required to be and is in compliance with all the financial covenants under the Credit Agreement and Prior Credit Agreement as of March 31, 2015.

Management believes that the Company’s current cash resources (cash on hand) will be sufficient to fund operations for the twelve months ending March 31, 2016.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES

Revenue Recognition The Company recognizes revenue from product sales when goods are shipped or delivered, and title and risk of loss pass to the customer except for those sales via multiple-deliverable arrangements. Provisions for certain rebates, product returns and discounts to customers are accounted for as reductions in sales in the same period the related sales are recorded. Product discounts granted are based on the terms of arrangements with direct, indirect and other market participants, as well as market conditions, including prices charged by competitors. Rebates are estimated based on contractual terms, historical experience, trend analysis and projected market conditions in the various markets served.  Service agreements which include a vendor managed inventory program include terms that meet the “bill and hold” criteria and as such are recognized when the order is completed and segregated in the Company’s warehouse.

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with guidance on revenue recognition of multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements.  Under this guidance, certain products offered by the Company have revenue producing components that are recognized over multiple delivery points (Sharps Recovery System™ (formerly the Sharps Disposal by Mail Systems®) and various TakeAway Environmental Return Systems™ referred to as “Mailbacks” and Sharps® Pump and Asset Return Boxes, referred to as “Pump Returns”) and can consist of up to three separate elements, or units of measure, as follows: (1) the sale of the compliance and container system, (2) return transportation and (3) treatment service.

In accordance with the relative selling price methodology, an estimated selling price is determined for all deliverables that qualify for separate units of accounting.  The actual consideration received in a multiple-deliverable arrangement is then allocated to the units based on their relative sales price.  The selling price for the transportation revenue and the treatment revenue utilizes third party evidence.  The Company estimates the selling price of the compliance and container system based on the product and services provided including compliance with local, state and Federal laws, adherence to stringent manufacturing and testing requirements, safety to the patient and the community as well as storage and containment capabilities.
 
Revenue for the sale of the compliance and container is recognized upon delivery to the customer, at which time the customer takes title and assumes risk of ownership.  Transportation revenue is recognized when the customer returns the compliance and container system and the container has been received at the Company’s owned or contracted facilities.  The compliance and container system is mailed or delivered by an alternative logistics provider to the Company’s owned or contracted facilities.  Treatment revenue is recognized upon the destruction or conversion and proof of receipt and treatment having been performed on the container.  Since the transportation element and the treatment elements are undelivered services at the point of initial sale of the compliance and container, transportation and treatment revenue is deferred until the services are performed.  The current and long-term portions of deferred revenue are determined through regression analysis and historical trends.  Furthermore, through regression analysis of historical data, the Company has determined that a certain percentage of all compliance and container systems sold may not be returned.  Accordingly, a portion of the transportation and treatment elements are recognized at the point of sale.

Income Taxes :  The liability method is used in accounting for deferred income taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The establishment of valuation allowances and development of projected annual effective tax rates requires significant judgment and is impacted by various estimates. Both positive and negative evidence, as well as the objectivity and verifiability of that evidence, is considered in determining the appropriateness of recording a valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

In May 2014, guidance for revenue recognition was issued which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements currently followed by the Company. The new guidance provides for a single five-step model to be applied in determining the amount and timing of the recognition of revenue related to contracts with customers. The new standard also requires additional financial statement disclosures that will enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows relating to customer contracts. Companies have an option to use either a retrospective approach or cumulative effect adjustment approach to implement the standard. There is no option for early adoption. The provisions of the new guidance are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 (effective July 1, 2017 for the Company), including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on its financial statements as well as determining which transition method to implement.

ITEM 3.
QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The Company does not have exposure to significant financial market risk including commodity price risk, foreign currency exchange risk or interest rate risk. Management does not use derivative instruments. The Company has limited exposure to changes in interest rates due to its lack of indebtedness.  The Company maintains a credit agreement under which we may borrow funds in the future. Currently, the Company does not foresee any borrowing needs.

ITEM 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
