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”, “We” 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 September 30, 2012, the results of its operations and cash flows for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 and stockholders’ equity for the year ended June 30, 2012 and three months ended September 30, 2012. The results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.  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, 2012.

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.

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 facility. The compliance and container system is mailed or delivered by an alternative logistics provider to the Company’s facility. 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 system, 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 container systems sold may not be returned.  Accordingly, a portion of the transportation and treatment elements are recognized at the point of sale.

 
7

 
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 us 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

There are no recently issued accounting pronouncements that impact the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2012.

NOTE 5 - INCOME TAXES

During the year ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded $2.0 million to establish a deferred tax valuation allowance on net deferred tax assets. 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 assets related to net operating loss carryforwards and other tax attributes.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was less than 1% reflecting estimated state income taxes for fiscal year 2013. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was 35.1%. The Company’s tax benefit associated with taxable losses during the three months ended September 30, 2012 was offset by a deferred tax valuation allowance.

NOTE 6 - NOTES PAYABLE AND LONG-TERM DEBT

On July 13, 2012, the Company executed the First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) with Wells Fargo, National Association (the “Bank”). The Amendment extended the maturity date of the Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) executed on July 15, 2010 from July 15, 2012 to July 15, 2014. The Company’s Credit Agreement with the Bank provides for a two-year, $5.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which may be utilized for: (i) working capital, (ii) capital expenditures, (iii) letters of credit (up to $500,000), (iv) acquisitions (up to $1,000,000) and (v) general corporate purposes. Pursuant to the Amendment, the aggregate principal amount of advances outstanding at any time under the Credit Agreement shall not exceed the Borrowing Base which is equal to (i) 80% of Eligible Accounts Receivable (as defined in the Amendment) plus (ii) 40% of Eligible Inventory (as defined in the Amendment). As of September 30, 2012, the Company had no outstanding borrowings, $108 thousand in letters of credit outstanding, and $3.2 million of credit available pursuant to its amended credit agreement.

Indebtedness under the Credit Agreement is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets. Borrowings bear interest at either (i) a fluctuating rate per annum equal to LIBOR plus a margin of 250 basis points or (ii) at the Company’s option, a fixed rate for a 30, 60, or 90 day period set at the option date’s LIBOR plus a margin of 250 basis points. Any outstanding revolving loans, and accrued and unpaid interest, will be due and payable on July 15, 2014, the maturity date set under the Amendment. The Company pays a fee of 0.2% per annum on the unused amount of the line of credit. We estimate that the interest rate applicable to the borrowings under the Amendment would be approximately 2.9% as of September 30, 2012.

The Amendment and Credit Agreement contain affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, require the Company to maintain a minimum level of tangible net worth of $21 million, not to exceed a ratio of liabilities to tangible net worth of 1.0 to 1.0 and achieve positive annual net income for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 (determined ninety daysthereafter). As of September 30, 2012, we are in compliance with all applicable financial covenants. The Amendment and Credit Agreement also contain customary events of default. Upon the occurrence of an event of default that remains uncured after any applicable cure period, the lenders’ commitment to make further loans may terminate and the Company may be required to make immediate repayment of all indebtedness to the lenders.
 
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). Total stock-based compensation for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 was $173 thousand ($1 thousand included in cost of revenues and $172 thousand included in general and administrative expense in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations) and $119 thousand ($20 thousand included in cost of revenues and $99 thousand included in general and administrative expense in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations), respectively. 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. The Company’s excess tax benefits included in its cash flows from financing activities for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 was $1 thousand and $12 thousand, respectively.

NOTE 8 - EARNINGS PER SHARE

Earnings per share are measured at two levels: basic per share and diluted per share. Basic per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted per share is computed by dividing net income 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. Vested restricted shares are included in basic common shares outstanding, and unvested restricted shares are included in the diluted common shares outstanding, if the effect is dilutive.

The following information is necessary to calculate earnings per share for the periods presented (in thousands, except per-share data):

*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 quarterly report on Form 10-Q 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 decrease in revenues is primarily attributable to decreased billings in the U.S. Government contract ($0.7 million) and Retail ($0.6 million) markets. The decrease in billings was partially offset by increased billings in the Professional ($0.3 million), Pharmaceutical ($0.3 million) and Core Government ($0.3 million) markets. U.S. Government Contract billings are associated with the Company’s contract with a major U.S. government agency announced in February 2009. The decrease in the U.S. Government contract market billings is associated with the January 31, 2012 termination of the maintenance portion of a U.S. Government contract with the Division of Strategic National Stockpile (“DSNS”) of the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”). The decrease in the Retail market billings is primarily due to higher sales in the prior year from the initial fill of the Complete Needle™ Collection & Disposal System in the country’s largest drugstore chain as well as initial orders in the prior year of Sharps TakeAway Environmental Return System™. The increase in the Professional market was a direct result of the Company’s targeted telemarketing activities, e-commerce focused website, trade show participation and internet-based promotional activities to educate doctors, dentists and veterinarians on the significant cost advantage and the convenience of the Sharps Recovery System™ over the traditional pick-up service. The increase in the Pharmaceutical market billings is due to the timing of customer orders including resupply orders by two of the patient support programs announced in August and October 2011. The programs include the direct fulfillment of the Sharps Recovery System ® to the pharmaceutical manufacturers’ program participants which provides the proper containment, return and treatment of the needles or injection devices utilized in therapy. The increase in the Core Government market billings reflects distributor sales to a major U.S. agency to facilitate the launch of our solutions in selected military bases.

Cost of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $3.6 million was 69.9% of revenues.  Cost of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2011 of $3.9 million was 68.3% of revenues.  The lower gross margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 of 30.1% (versus 31.7% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011) was due to ongoing facility costs of $0.1 million, or 220 basis points, associated with the maintenance portion of the U.S. government contract that was terminated as of January 31, 2012.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $2.1 million, decreased by $0.1 million, from SG&A expenses of $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  

The Company generated an operating loss of $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to an operating loss of $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The operating margin was (12.4%) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to (8.7%) for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in operating loss is a result of the lower billings in the current quarter primarily due to the U.S. government contract that was terminated as of January 31, 2012 partially mitigated by strong cost discipline and focused use of resources on targeted markets primarily Retail, Pharmaceutical, Professional and Core Government markets (discussed above).

The Company generated a loss before income tax expense of $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 versus a loss before tax of $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in the loss before income tax is a result of the higher operating loss (discussed above).

The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was less than 1% reflecting estimated state income taxes for fiscal year 2013. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was 35.1%. During the year ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded $2.0 million to establish a deferred tax valuation allowance on net deferred tax assets. The Company’s tax benefit associated with taxable losses during the three months ended September 30, 2012 was offset by a deferred tax valuation allowance.

The Company generated a net loss of $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The higher net loss is a result of a higher operating loss and lower tax benefit (discussed above).

The Company reported diluted loss per share of ($0.04) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 versus diluted loss per share of ($0.02) for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The decrease in diluted earnings per share is a result of a higher net loss in the current quarter (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, home healthcare companies, consumers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, government agencies, health care facilities, individual self-injectors and commercial organizations become more aware of the need for the proper treatment of medical sharps waste, used healthcare materials and unused dispensed medications as well as alternatives to traditional methods of disposal.

 The Company’s growth strategies are focused on the Retail, Pharmaceutical, Professional and Core Government markets. The Company also serves the Home Health Care, Assisted Living/Hospitality and Other 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;

·  
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 June 30, 2012, approximately 46 percent of U.S. citizens live in states that have enacted legislation or strict guidelines mandating the proper disposal of used syringes while 67 percent live in states that have enacted or proposed legislation mandating the proper disposal of dispensed unused medications;

·  
New solution offerings including 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 Environmental Return System™), the Medical/Professional TakeAway Recovery System and enhanced patient support programs with pharmaceutical manufacturers;

·  
The opportunity to increase the availability to individuals of our consumer focused solutions like Complete Needle™ Collection and Disposal System   and the TakeAway line of products through sponsorship by drug and ancillary product manufacturers;

·  
The Company’s recently announced joint marketing alliance with Daniels Sharpsmart (“JMA”) to serve the entire U.S. medical waste market, offering clients a blended product portfolio to effectively target health care customers with multi-site and multi-sized locations; and

·  
The Company’s strong financial position with a cash balance of $16.8 million, no debt and $3.2 million of credit available pursuant to its amended credit agreement as of September 30, 2012.
 
TERMINATED CONTRACT
 
In February 2009, the Company launched Sharps ® MWMS™, a Medical Waste Management System (“MWMS”), which is a comprehensive medical waste and dispensed medication solution which includes an array of products and services necessary to effectively collect, store and treat medical waste and unused dispensed medication outside of the hospital or large health care facility setting. In connection with the launch in 2009, the Company signed a five year contract (one year, plus four option years) with a major U.S. government agency for a $40 million program to provide our comprehensive Medical Waste Management System™, or Sharps ® MWMS™, which is a rapid-deployment solution offering designed to provide medical waste collection, storage and treatment in the event of natural disasters, pandemics, man-made disasters, or other national emergencies.  Sharps ® MWMS™ is unique in that the solution also offers warehousing, inventory management, training, data and other services necessary to provide a comprehensive solution. We received a purchase order for $28.5 million ($6.0 million of which was recognized in fiscal year 2009, and $22.5 million was recognized in the first half of fiscal year 2010).  In January 2010, the Company was awarded the first option year (ending January 31, 2011) valued at approximately $1.6 million which was recognized from February 1, 2010 through January 31, 2011.  In January 2011, we were awarded the second option year (ending January 31, 2012) valued at approximately $3.0 million and was recognized from February 1, 2011 through January 31, 2012.  The Company was notified by an agency of the U. S. Government, acting on behalf of the DSNS, that the maintenance contract would not be renewed for the third option year (beginning February 1, 2012) and that the contract would be terminated effective January 31, 2012. This non-renewal was preceded by a letter dated December 2, 2011 advising the Company of the U.S. Government’s intent to exercise the third option year. Although not stated in the notice provided by the U.S. Government, the Company believes the action is part of a budget reduction program being implemented by the DSNS.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Cash Flow

Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $0.7 million to $16.8 million at September 30, 2012 from $17.5 million at June 30, 2012. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents is primarily due to the timing of collections from orders related to billings in September 2012 and capital expenditures and additions to intangible assets of $0.3 million (discussed below).

Accounts receivable increased by $1.0 million to $3.4 million at September 30, 2012 from $2.4 million at June 30, 2012. The increase is due to timing of billings and collections.

Inventory decreased by $0.2 million to $2.0 million at September 30, 2012 from $2.2 million at June 30, 2012. The decrease in inventory is due to timing of sales and new product buildup.

Working capital decreased $0.4 million to $18.2 million at September 30, 2012 from $18.6 million at June 30, 2012. The decrease is primarily due to decreases in cash and cash equivalents, inventory and higher accounts payable as a result of timing of payments (as discussed above) offset by higher accounts receivable (as discussed above).

Property, plant and equipment, net decreased by less than $0.1 million to $4.6 million at September 30, 2012 from $4.6 million at June 30, 2012.  The decrease in property and equipment is related to depreciation expense of $0.3 million, partially offset by capital expenditures of $0.2 million. The capital expenditures are attributable primarily to treatment facility improvements of $173 thousand.

Stockholders’ equity decreased by $0.5 million to $22.7 million at September 30, 2012 from $23.2 million at June 30, 2012.  This decrease is primarily attributable to a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $0.6 million.  The impact was partially offset by the effect on equity (credit) of non-cash stock based award expense of $0.2 million.

Off -Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company entered into certain off-balance sheet arrangements in the ordinary course of business that result in risks not directly reflected in our balance sheets. The Company’s most significant off-balance sheet transactions include commitments associated with non-cancelable operating leases. The Company has other off-balance sheet obligations involving letters of credit.

The Company entered into non-cancelable operating leases for certain of our facility, vehicle and equipment needs. These leases allow us to conserve cash by paying a monthly lease rental fee for use of facilities, vehicles and equipment rather than purchasing them. At the end of the lease, the Company has no further obligation to the lessor. If we decide to cancel or terminate a lease before the end of its term, we would typically owe the lessor the remaining lease payments under the term of the lease.

As a result of the termination of the U.S. Government contract, the Company is attempting to buy-out or sublease the Atlanta facility lease obligation. In August 2012, the Company executed an agreement with the Atlanta facility landlord reducing its obligation under the lease for the 51,000 square foot facility by approximately 20,000 square feet effective September 1, 2012.

Credit Facility

On July 13, 2012, the Company executed the First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) with Wells Fargo, National Association (the “Bank”). The Amendment extended the maturity date of the Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) executed on July 15, 2010 from July 15, 2012 to July 15, 2014. The Company’s Credit Agreement with the Bank provides for a two-year, $5.0 million line of credit facility, the proceeds of which may be utilized for: (i) working capital, (ii) capital expenditures, (iii) letters of credit (up to $500,000), (iv) acquisitions (up to $1,000,000) and (v) general corporate purposes. Pursuant to the Amendment, the aggregate principal amount of advances outstanding at any time under the Credit Agreement shall not exceed the Borrowing Base which is equal to (i) 80% of Eligible Accounts Receivable (as defined in the Amendment) plus (ii) 40% of Eligible Inventory (as defined in the Amendment). As of September 30, 2012, the Company had no outstanding borrowings, $108 thousand in letters of credit outstanding, and $3.2 million of credit available pursuant to its amended credit agreement. The short-term borrowings during the reporting period did not differ from the amount outstanding as of September 30, 2012.

 
15

 

Indebtedness under the Credit Agreement is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets. Borrowings bear interest at either (i) a fluctuating rate per annum equal to LIBOR plus a margin of 250 basis points or (ii) at the Company’s option, a fixed rate for a 30, 60, or 90 day period set at the option date’s LIBOR plus a margin of 250 basis points. Any outstanding revolving loans, and accrued and unpaid interest, will be due and payable on July 15, 2014, the maturity date set under the Amendment. The Company pays a fee of 0.2% per annum on the unused amount of the line of credit. We estimate that the interest rate applicable to the borrowings under the Amendment would be approximately 2.9% as of September 30, 2012.

The Amendment and Credit Agreement contain affirmative and negative covenants that, among other things, require the Company to maintain a minimum level of tangible net worth of $21 million, not to exceed a ratio of liabilities to tangible net worth of 1.0 to 1.0 and achieve positive annual net income for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 (determined ninety days thereafter). As of September 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants. The Amendment and Credit Agreement also contain customary events of default. Upon the occurrence of an event of default that remains uncured after any applicable cure period, the lenders’ commitment to make further loans may terminate and the Company may be required to make immediate repayment of all indebtedness to the lenders.

Management believes that the Company’s current cash resources (cash on hand and cash generated from operations) along with its line of credit with the Bank will be sufficient to fund operations for the twelve months ending September 30, 2013.

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.  

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 facility.  The compliance and container system is mailed or delivered by an alternative logistics provider to the Company’s facility. 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 system, 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 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.
