Note 1 - Organization and Operations
On March 30, 2009, Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Sustut Exploration, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Optex Systems Holdings”), along with Optex Systems, Inc., a privately held Delaware corporation (“Optex Systems, Inc.”), which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Optex Systems Holdings, entered into a reorganization agreement, pursuant to which Optex Systems, Inc. was acquired by Optex Systems Holdings in a share exchange transaction. Optex Systems Holdings became the surviving corporation. At the closing, there was a name change from Sustut Exploration, Inc. to Optex Systems Holdings, Inc., and its year end changed from December 31 to a fiscal year ending on the Sunday nearest September 30.
Optex Systems Holdings’ operations are based in Richardson, Texas in a leased facility comprising 49,100 square feet. As of April 1, 2012, Optex Systems Holdings operated with 73 full-time equivalent employees.
Optex Systems Holdings manufactures optical sighting systems and assemblies, primarily for Department of Defense and foreign military applications. Its products are installed on a variety of U.S. and foreign military land vehicles, such as the Abrams and Bradley fighting vehicles, light armored and advanced security vehicles, and have been selected for installation on the Stryker family of vehicles. Optex Systems Holdings also manufactures and delivers numerous periscope configurations, rifle and surveillance sights and night vision optical assemblies. Optex Systems Holdings’ products consist primarily of build to customer print products that are delivered both directly to the military and to other defense prime contractors.
In February 2009, Optex Systems Holdings’ ISO certification status was upgraded from 9001:2000 to 9001:2008, bringing Optex Systems Holdings into compliance with the new ISO standards rewritten to align with ISO 14001.
Note 2 - Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
Principles of Consolidation: The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Optex Systems Holdings and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Optex Systems, Inc. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The condensed consolidated financial statements of Optex Systems Holdings included herein have been prepared by Optex Systems Holdings, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in conjunction with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although Optex Systems Holdings believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual audited financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Optex Systems Holdings’ Form 10-K for the year ended October 2, 2011 and other reports filed with the SEC.
The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of Optex Systems Holdings for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for these periods are not necessarily comparable to, or indicative of, results of any other interim period or for the fiscal year taken as a whole. Certain information that is not required for interim financial reporting purposes has been omitted.
Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from the estimates.
Inventory: Inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or market value, and adjusted, as necessary, for decreases in valuation and obsolescence. Adjustments to the valuation and obsolescence reserves are made after analyzing market conditions, current and projected sales activity, inventory costs and inventory balances to determine appropriate reserve levels. Cost is determined using the first-in first-out method. Under arrangements by which progress payments are received against certain contracts, the customer retains a security interest in the undelivered inventory identified with these contracts. Payments received for such undelivered inventory are classified as unliquidated progress payments and deducted from the gross inventory balance. As of April 1, 2012 and October 2, 2011, inventory included:
|As of |
|As of |
|Work in Process||1,440||1,930|
|Unliquidated Progress Payments||(354||)||(1,181||)|
Revenue Recognition: Optex Systems Holdings recognizes revenue based on the modified percentage of completion method utilizing the units-of-delivery method, in accordance with FASB ASC 605-35.
The units-of-delivery method recognizes as revenue the contract price of units of a basic production product delivered during a period and as the cost of earned revenue the costs allocable to the delivered units; costs allocable to undelivered units are reported in the balance sheet as inventory or work in progress. The method is used in circumstances in which an entity produces units of a basic product under production-type contracts in a continuous or sequential production process to buyers’ specifications.
Optex Systems Holdings contracts are fixed price production type contracts whereby a defined order quantity is delivered to the customer during a continuous or sequential production process tailored to the buyer’s specifications (build to print). Optex Systems Holdings’ deliveries against these contracts generally occur in monthly increments across fixed delivery periods spanning from 3 to 36 months.
Optex Systems Holdings may at times have contracts that allow for invoicing based on achievement of milestone events. In such cases, Optex Systems Inc. recognizes revenue based on the milestone method in accordance with FASB ASC 605-28, as applicable. On October 24, 2011, Optex Systems Inc. was awarded a $7.8 million dollar contract with General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada which provides for milestone invoices up to a total of $3.9 million as outlined in the summarized contract table below. In accordance with FASB 605-28, Optex Systems, Inc. recognizes milestone payments as revenue upon completion of a substantive milestone as commensurate with the following guidelines: our performance to achieve the milestone, the milestone relates solely to past performance and is reasonable relative to all of the deliverables and payment terms within the arrangement. Milestones are not considered as substantive if any portion of the associated milestone consideration relates to the remaining deliverables in the unit of accounting. Non-substantive milestone payments are reported as a liability on the balance sheet as Short Term and Long Term Customer Advance Deposits.
The following table depicts the current contract milestone schedule as of April 1, 2012.
|Milestone Event||Estimated Completion / Invoice Date||Revenue||Customer Deposits / Liability|
|Start of Work Meeting |
System Functional Review
Production Start of Work
|Delivery of Two Prototypes||Nov-11||63.7||61.8|
|Preliminary Design Review
PRM #1 (Meeting) Production
|Critical Design Review |
PRM #2 (Meeting)
|Placement of Long Lead Material (LLM)||May-12||25.0||100.4|
|Delivery of Two Engineering Development Units||May-12||55.0||100.0|
|Delivery of One Production Ready Unit||May-12||68.2||125.6|
|PRM #3 (Meeting)||May-12||69.3||570.0|
|Delivery of Two Final Production Ready Units||Jun-12||258.6||575.0|
In the three and six months ending April 1, 2012, Optex recognized $123 thousand of revenue as a result of achieving substantive milestone events. During the three and six months ending April 3, 2011, there were no existing contracts providing for milestone billing, and no revenue was recognized as a result of milestone events.
Customer Advance Deposits: Customer advance deposits represent amounts collected from customers in advance of shipment or revenue recognition which relate to undelivered product due to non-substantive milestone payments or other cash in advance payment terms. As of April 1, 2012, Optex Systems, Inc. had collected $1.6 million in customer advance deposits related to non-substantive milestone billings. The terms of the contract extend through 2017 during which time we are required to purchase the necessary materials to fulfill the delivery of products required by the contract. Of the total collected customer advance deposits, $400 thousand related to short term customer advance deposits for deliveries to occur within the next twelve months and $1.2 million related long term customer advance deposits for deliveries occurring after March 2013. As of October 2, 2011, there were no milestone or advance payment agreements; thus the customer advance deposit balance was $0.
Stock-Based Compensation: FASB ASC 718 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, but primarily focuses on transactions whereby an entity obtains employee services for share-based payments. FASB ASC 718 requires that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements. That cost will be measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued. It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments.
The Company’s accounting policy for equity instruments issued to consultants and vendors in exchange for goods and services follows the provisions of FASB ASC 505-50. The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the consultant or vendor is reached or (ii) the date at which the consultant or vendor’s performance is complete. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement. Stock-based compensation related to non-employees is accounted for based on the fair value of the related stock or options or the fair value of the services, whichever is more readily determinable in accordance with FASB ASC 718.
Income Tax/Deferred Tax: FASB ASC 740 requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differing treatment of items for financial reporting and income tax reporting purposes. The deferred tax balances are adjusted to reflect tax rates by tax jurisdiction, based on currently enacted tax laws, which will be in effect in the years in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse. Under FASB ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations. Optex Systems Holdings has recognized deferred income tax benefits on net operating loss carry-forwards to the extent Optex Systems Holdings believes it will be able to utilize them in future tax filings. The difference between the statutory income tax expense and the accounting tax expense is primarily attributable to non-deductible expenses representing permanent timing differences between book income and taxable income during the three and six months ended April 1, 2012.
Earnings per Share: Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available for common shareholders (the numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock.
The potentially dilutive securities that Optex Systems Holdings has outstanding are convertible preferred stock, stock options and warrants. In computing the dilutive effect of convertible preferred stock, the numerator is adjusted to add back any convertible preferred dividends, and the denominator is increased to assume the conversion of the number of additional common shares. Optex Systems Holdings uses the Treasury Stock Method to compute the dilutive effect of stock options and warrants. Convertible preferred stock, stock options and warrants that are anti-dilutive are excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per common share.
For the three and six months ended April 1, 2012, 1,027 shares of Series A preferred stock, 48,597,649 stock options and 9,948,667 warrants were excluded from the earnings per share calculation as anti-dilutive. For the three and six months ended April 3, 2011, 1,027 shares of Series A preferred stock, 2,572,649 stock options and 9,948,667 warrants were excluded from the earnings per share calculation as anti-dilutive.
Note 3 - Commitments and Contingencies
Pursuant to a lease amendment effective January 4, 2010, Optex Systems Holdings leases its office and manufacturing facilities under a non-cancellable operating lease expiring July 31, 2015, in addition to maintaining several non-cancellable operating leases for office and manufacturing equipment. Total expense under facility lease agreements as of the three and six months ended April 1, 2012 was $68 thousand and $140 thousand, respectively, and total expense for manufacturing and office equipment was $3 thousand and $7 thousand, respectively. Total expense under facility lease agreements as of the three and six months ended April 3, 2011 was $74 and $145 thousand, respectively, and total expense for manufacturing and office equipment was $11 and $20 thousand, respectively.
As of April 1, 2012, the remaining minimum lease payments under the non-cancelable operating leases for equipment, office and facility space are as follows:
|Total minimum lease payments||$||792|
Pursuant to the terms of the amendment to the facilities lease, there was no base rent payment due from January 1, 2010 through July 31, 2010, and the total value of this rent abatement was $134 thousand. The value of this deferred rent expense is amortized monthly at a rate of $2 thousand per month over the life of the lease. The total unamortized deferred rent as of April 1, 2012 was $80 thousand as compared to $104 thousand as of April 3, 2011. Commencing on August 1, 2010, the base rent payment is $19 thousand per month.
Note 4 – Intangible Assets
One of the most significant estimates or judgments that the Company makes is whether to capitalize or expense patent and license costs. The Company makes this judgment based on whether the technology has alternative future uses, in accordance with ASC 730, “Research and Development”. Based on this consideration, the Company capitalizes payments made to legal firms that are engaged in filing and protecting rights to intellectual property and rights for our current products. Patents and patent applications are a key component of intellectual property, especially in the early stage of product development. The legal costs incurred for these patents consist of work designed to protect, preserve, maintain and perhaps extend the lives of the patents. The patent costs are amortized over the expected useful life of 7 years for book purposes and over 15 years for income tax purposes. As of the April 1, 2012, the total unamortized balance of intangible assets was $50 thousand.
The unamortized balance of intangible assets will be amortized to general and administrative expenses over the next 5 years as follows:
|Fiscal Year||Patent Costs|
In the periods ending April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011, respectively, there was $0 amortization expense associated with the intangible assets.
Note 5 - Debt Financing
Credit Facility – Avidbank
On March 22, 2011, Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. amended its revolving credit facility with Avidbank, which provided up to $1 million in financing against eligible receivables. The line expired on March 15, 2012 and as of April 1, 2012, the outstanding balance on the line of credit was $0. For the three months and six months ended April 1, 2012, the total interest expense against the outstanding line of credit balance was $7 thousand and $17 thousand, respectively. For the three months and six months ended April 3, 2011, the total interest expense against the outstanding line of credit balance was $30 thousand and $53 thousand, respectively.
On April 16, 2012, the Company amended its revolving credit facility with Avidbank. The new renewable revolving maturity date is April 15, 2014. See Note 8 – Subsequent Events for a further discussion of this credit facility amendment.
Note 6-Stock Based Compensation
On March 26, 2009, the Board of Directors adopted the 2009 Stock Option Plan providing for the issuance of up to 6,000,000 shares to Optex Systems Holdings officers, directors, employees and to independent contractors who provide services to Optex Systems Holdings.
Options granted under the 2009 Stock Option Plan vest as determined by the Board of Directors of Optex Systems Holdings or a committee set up to act as a compensation committee of the Board of Directors and terminate after the earliest of the following events: (i) expiration of the option as provided in the option agreement, (ii) 90 days following the date of termination of the employee, or (iii) ten years from the date of grant (five years from the date of grant for incentive options granted to an employee who owns more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of Optex Systems Holdings stock at the date of grant). In some instances, granted stock options are immediately exercisable into restricted shares of common stock, which vest in accordance with the original terms of the related options. Optex Systems Holdings recognizes compensation expense ratably over the requisite service period.
The option price of each share of common stock is determined by the Board of Directors or a committee set up to act as a compensation committee, provided that with respect to incentive stock options, the option price per share will in all cases be equal to or greater than 100% of the fair value of a share of common stock on the date of the grant, except an incentive option granted under the 2009 Stock Option Plan to a shareholder that owns more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of Optex Systems Holdings’ stock, will have an exercise price of not less than 110% of the fair value of a share of common stock on the date of grant. No participant may be granted incentive stock options, which would result in shares with an aggregate fair value of more than $100,000 first becoming exercisable in one calendar year.
As of April 1, 2012, 1,971,149 of awarded stock options had vested and 154,000 shares had been forfeited due to employee turnover. As of April 3, 2011, 1,237,315 of the awarded stock options had vested and 109,000 shares had been forfeited due to employee turnover.
Optex Systems Holdings recorded compensation costs for options and shares granted under the plan amounting to $42 and $69 thousand for the three and six months ended April 1, 2012, respectively, as opposed to $25 and $50 thousand for the three and six months ended April 3, 2011, respectively. The impact of this expense was immaterial to the basic and diluted net loss per share for the quarters ended April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011, respectively. A deduction is not allowed for income tax purposes until nonqualified options are exercised. The amount of this deduction will be the difference between the fair value of Optex Systems Holdings’ common stock and the exercise price at the date of exercise. For the three and six months ended April 1, 2012, the estimated deferred tax assets related to option compensation costs were $14 thousand and $23 thousand, respectively. For the three and six months ended April 3, 2011, the estimated deferred tax assets related to option compensation costs were $9 thousand and $17 thousand, respectively. These tax effects have been recorded in the financial statement expenses. No tax deduction is allowed for incentive stock options. Accordingly no deferred tax asset is recorded for GAAP expense related to these options.
The company records its stock based compensation expense in accordance with ASC 718-10, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”. In estimating the value of stock options issued, management has valued the options at their date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model. For options issued on December 9, 2011, the fair value of the underlying shares was determined based on the closing price of Optex Systems Holdings’ publicly-traded shares as of December 9, 2011 Further, Optex used an expected volatility of 364.2% which was calculated using the historical Optex Systems Holdings stock prices over the prior 12 month trading period. Estimation of these equity instruments’ fair value is affected by our stock price, as well as assumptions regarding subjective and complex variables such as employee exercise behavior and our expected stock price volatility over the term of the award. As our assumptions are based on historical information, judgment is required to determine if historical trends are fair indicators of future outcomes.
The risk-free interest rates used of 1.5% to 2.2% were determined based on the implied yield available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent term approximating the expected life of the options of 4.5 to 7 years depending on the date of the grant and expected life of the options. The expected life of options used was based on the contractual life of the option grant. Optex Systems Holdings determined the expected dividend rate based on the assumption and expectation that earnings generated from operations are not expected to be adequate to allow for the payment of dividends in the near future and the assumption that Optex Systems Holdings does not presently have any intention of paying cash dividends on its common stock
Optex Systems Holdings has granted stock options to officers and employees as follows:

Warrant Agreements: Optex Systems Holdings calculates the fair value of warrants issued with debt or preferred stock using the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation method. The total proceeds received in the sale of debt or preferred stock and related warrants are allocated among these financial instruments based on their relative fair values. The discount arising from assigning a portion of the total proceeds to the warrants issued is recognized as interest expense for debt from the date of issuance to the earlier of the maturity date of the debt or the conversion dates using the effective yield method.
As of April 1, 2012, Optex Systems Holdings had the following warrants outstanding:
|Outstanding as of
|Private Placement Stock Holders||3/30/2009||8,131,667||$||0.450||8,131,667||3/29/2014||5 years|

During the three and six months ended April 1, 2012, Optex Systems Holdings recorded no interest expense related to the outstanding warrants. During the three and six months ended April 3, 2011, Optex Systems Holdings recorded a total of $5 thousand and $13 thousand in interest expense related to the outstanding warrants. Interest expense related to outstanding warrants was fully amortized as of October 2, 2011. These warrants are not included in the computation of weighted average of shares as it would be anti-dilutive.
Note 7 Stockholder’s Equity
On February 22, 2012, Alpha Capital Anstalt purchased 5,000,000 restricted shares of Common Stock of Registrant at a purchase price of $0.01 per share, for a total purchase price of $50,000. The purchase price for the Common Stock was negotiated on February 2, 2012 when the stock price was $0.01. The $50,000 has been utilized by Optex Systems Holdings for operating expenses. The Common Stock was purchased by Alpha in a private transaction exempt from registration under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1934 and is restricted from resale and the stock certificate issued will bear the appropriate restrictive legend. There were no other issues of common or preferred stock during the three and six months ended April 1, 2012. During the three and six months ended April 3, 2011 there were no new issues of common or preferred stock.
On June 22, 2011, our shareholders approved an amendment to our articles of incorporation to increase our authorized shares of common stock to 2 billion. This amendment was the subject of a Definitive Information Statement on Scheduled 14C which was filed with the SEC on September 23, 2011 and filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on November 23, 2011.
On April 14, 2011 Optex filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 which provides for the sale of up to 25,000,000 shares of our common stock at a fixed price (currently anticipated to be $0.01 per share). The S-1 also contemplates a reduction in the warrant exercise price to $0.01 per share for the 2009 private placement investors and a waiver of accrued dividends from the Series A preferred shareholders. The Registration Statement on Form S-1 is currently in the review process with the Commission.
Series A preferred stock
Optex Systems Holdings has filed a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware authorizing a series of preferred stock, under its articles of incorporation, known as “Series A preferred stock”. The Certificate of Designation currently sets forth the following terms for the Series A preferred stock: (i) number of authorized shares: 1,027; (ii) per share stated value: $6,830.64; (iii) liquidation preference per share: stated value; (iv) conversion price: $0.15 per share as adjusted from time to time; and (v) voting rights: votes along with the common stock on an as converted basis with one vote per share. The conversion price was subsequently reset to $0.01 per share as discussed below.
The Series A preferred stock entitles the holders to receive cumulative dividends at the rate of 6% per annum, payable in cash at the discretion of Board of Directors. Each share of preferred stock is immediately convertible into common shares at the option of the holder which entitles the holder to receive the equivalent number of common shares equal to the stated value of the preferred shares divided by the conversion price, which was initially set at $0.15 per share. The dividends were subsequently waived and the price per share was reset to $0.01 on February 21, 2012 as discussed below.
Holders of preferred shares receive preferential rights in the event of liquidation. Additionally the preferred stock shareholders are entitled to vote together with the common stock on an “as-converted” basis.
As of July 3, 2011, the preferred shareholders agreed to waive the past dividends in arrears through July 3, 2011 of $884 thousand in exchange for an increase in the stated value to $6,830.64. On February 21, 2012, in connection with the purchase of the 5,000,000 shares of common stock of Optex Systems Holdings by Alpha Capital, the preferred shareholders executed an irrevocable waiver for any and all previously accrued and outstanding dividends and the right to receive any future dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock. The per share conversion price of the Registrant’s Series A Preferred Stock has been automatically reset to $0.01 per share in accordance with the reset provision as set forth in paragraph 4(d)(ii) of the Series Designation for the Registrant’s Series A Preferred Stock. The total amount of dividends waived as a result of the February 21, 2012 waiver is $213 thousand. As of the three and six months ended April 1, 2012, Optex Systems Holdings reversed previously recorded preferred dividends payable of ($213) thousand and ($106) thousand, respectively. As of the three and six months ended April 3, 2011, Optex Systems Holdings recorded preferred dividends payable of $102 thousand and $203 thousand, respectively. As of April 1, 2012 as a result of the executed waiver dated February 21, 2012, there were no dividends in arrears on preferred shares and no future dividends will accrue on the preferred shares.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Management’s Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operations
This management’s discussion and analysis reflects information known to management as at April 1, 2012 and through the date of this filing. This MD&A is intended to supplement and complement our audited financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended October 2, 2011 and the quarter ended April 1, 2012, prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). You are encouraged to review our financial statements in conjunction with your review of this MD&A. The financial information in this MD&A has been prepared in accordance with GAAP, unless otherwise indicated. In addition, we use non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance and financial position. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally for comparing actual results from one period to another, as well as for planning purposes. We will also report non-GAAP financial results as supplemental information, as we believe their use provides more insight into our performance. When non-GAAP measures are used in this MD&A, they are clearly identified as non-GAAP measures and reconciled to the most closely corresponding GAAP measure.
The following discussion highlights the principal factors that have affected our financial condition and results of operations as well as our liquidity and capital resources for the periods described. This discussion contains forward-looking statements. Please see “Special cautionary statement concerning forward-looking statements” and “Risk factors” for a discussion of the uncertainties, risks and assumptions associated with these forward-looking statements. The operating results for the periods presented were not significantly affected by inflation.
On March 30, 2009, a reorganization was consummated pursuant to which the then existing shareholders of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) exchanged their shares of common stock for shares of common stock of Optex Systems Holdings as follows: (i) the outstanding 85,000,000 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 113,333,282 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock, (ii) the outstanding 1,027 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) Series A preferred stock were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 1,027 shares of Optex Systems Holdings Series A preferred stock, and (iii) the 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) common stock purchased in the private placement were exchanged by Optex Systems Holdings for 8,131,667 shares of Optex Systems Holdings common stock. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) remained a wholly-owned subsidiary of Optex Systems Holdings.
As a result of the reorganization, Optex Systems Holdings changed its name from Sustut Exploration Inc. to Optex Systems Holdings, Inc., and its year end from December 31 to a fiscal year ending on the Sunday nearest September 30.
Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) manufactures optical sighting systems and assemblies, primarily for Department of Defense applications. Its products are installed on various types of U.S. military land vehicles, such as the Abrams and Bradley fighting vehicles, light armored and armored security vehicles and have been selected for installation on the Stryker family of vehicles. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) also manufactures and delivers numerous periscope configurations, rifle and surveillance sights and night vision optical assemblies. Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware) products consist primarily of build-to-customer print products that are delivered both directly to the armed services and to other defense prime contractors. Less than 1% of today’s revenue is related to the resale of products substantially manufactured by others. In this case, the product would likely be a simple replacement part of a larger system previously produced by Optex Systems, Inc. (Delaware).
By way of background, the Federal Acquisition Regulation is the principal set of regulations that govern the acquisition process of government agencies and contracts with the U.S. government. In general, parts of the Federal Acquisition Regulation are incorporated into government solicitations and contracts by reference as terms and conditions effecting contract awards and pricing solicitations.
Many of our contracts are prime or subcontracted directly with the Federal government and, as such, are subject to Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 49.5, “Contract Termination Clauses” and more specifically Federal Acquisition Regulation clauses 52.249-2 “Termination for Convenience of the Government Fixed-Price)”, and 49.504 “Termination of fixed-price contracts for default”. These clauses are standard clauses on our prime military contracts and generally apply to us as subcontractors. It has been our experience that the termination for convenience is rarely invoked, except where it is mutually beneficial for both parties. We are currently not aware of any pending terminations for convenience or for default on our existing contracts.
In the event a termination for convenience were to occur, Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.249-2 provides for full recovery of all contractual costs and profits reasonably occurred up to and as a result of the terminated contract. In the event a termination for default were to occur, we could be liable for any excess cost incurred by the government to acquire supplies from another supplier similar to those terminated from us. We would not be liable for any excess costs if the failure to perform the contract arises from causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the company as defined by Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.249-8. In addition, the Government may require us to transfer title and deliver to the Government any completed supplies, partially completed supplies and materials, parts, tools, dies, jigs, fixtures, plans, drawings, information, and contract rights that we have specifically produced or acquired for the terminated portion of this contract. The Government shall pay contract price for completed supplies delivered and accepted, and we and the Government would negotiate an agreed upon amount of payment for manufacturing materials delivered and accepted and for the protection and preservation of the property. Failure to agree on an amount for manufacturing materials is subject to the Federal Acquisition Regulation Disputes clause 52.233-1.
Many of our contracts allow for government contract financing in the form of contract progress payments pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation 52.232-16, “Progress Payments”. As a small business, and subject to certain limitations, this clause provides for government payment of up to 90% of incurred program costs prior to product delivery. In addition, Optex has a significant contract that allows for milestone payments in advance of delivery, based on achieving significant milestone events in accordance with the contract schedule. To the extent our contracts allow for progress or milestone payments, we intend to utilize these benefits, thereby minimizing the working capital impact on Optex Systems Holdings for materials and labor required to complete the contracts.
Our contracts allow for Federal Acquisition Regulation 52.243-1 which entitles the contractor to an “equitable adjustment" to the contract if the contract changes result in a change in contract costs or time of performance. In essence, an equitable price adjustment request is a request for a contract price modification (generally an increase) that allows for the contractor to be "made whole" for additional costs incurred which were necessitated by some modification of the contract effort. This modification may come from an overt change in Government requirements or scope, or it may come from a change in the conditions surrounding the contract (e.g., differing site conditions or late delivery of Government-furnished property) which result in statement of work additions, deletions, part substitutions, schedule or other changes to the contract which impact the contractor's overall cost to complete. Optex has submitted an equitable adjustment request on the Aiming Circle Howitzer program due to significant design issues impacting the manufacturability of the product. Discussions with the contracting agency are ongoing; however, as of April 1, 2012, we have not yet received resolution from the contracting officer regarding the status of our request.
Results of Operations
Backlog as of April 1, 2012, was $18.0 million as compared to a backlog of $13.8 million as of April 3, 2011, representing an increase of 30.4%. The following table depicts the current expected delivery by of all contracts awarded as of April 1, 2012.
|Product Line||Qtr 3||Qtr 4||2012||2013||2014||2015||2016||2017||Total|
In the first two fiscal quarters of 2012, Optex Systems Holdings received $14.7 million in new orders consisting of a $8.0 million M36 contract deliverable over 5 years from General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada, a $1.2 million other product line award from the Defense Logistics Agency for a Gunner's Head Assembly on the M1 Abrams Tank deliverable in fiscal year 2012, and $5.5 million in additional orders from several customers primarily in support of our periscope and other product line which will be delivered in fiscal years 2012 through 2015. The $8.0 million M36 contract provides for milestone billings in the current fiscal year of $3.9 million of which approximately $3.3 million relates to customer advance deposits for future year deliverables.
Three Months Ended April 1, 2012 Compared to the Three Months Ended April 3, 2011
|Revenues. In the three months ended April 1, 2012, revenues increased by 2.6% from the respective prior period in 2011 as set forth in the table below (dollar amounts in millions):|
|Three months ended|
|Product Line||April 1, 2012||April 3, 2011||Variance||% Chg|
Revenues increased by $0.4 million, or 15.4%, on our periscope line during the three months ended April 1, 2012 as compared to the three months ended April 3, 2011. The primary reason for the increase is due to higher production quantities of glass periscope ICWS orders. The increase in glass periscopes is partially offset by an overall decline in plastic periscope shipments as compared to the prior year period.
Revenues from the Howitzer programs decreased $(0.1) million, or 12.5%, over the same three months in the prior year. The decline in revenue is primarily due to completion of two of our Howitzer programs in FY2011 and completion of our one remaining Howitzer program in March 2012 with no current follow-on contracts.
Decreases in the other product lines of $(0.2) million, or 50.0%, for the three months ending April 1, 2012 compared to the prior year period are due to lower orders and production quantities from GDLS on collimator muzzle reference system assemblies as our current contracts for these units are winding down. The prior year period also included a short onetime order for big eye binocular assemblies.
Cost of Goods Sold. During the three months ended April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011,we recorded cost of goods sold of $3.2. The gross margin during the three months ended April 1, 2012 was $0.64 million or 16.4% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $0.59 million or 15.5% for the three months ended April 3, 2011. The increase in gross margin percentage for the quarter as compared to the prior year is primarily due to a shift in product mix toward more profitable programs and completion of the Howitzer loss programs in 2011.
G&A Expenses. During the three months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded operating expenses of $0.65 million as opposed to $0.59 million, during the three months ended April 3, 2011, an increase of $0.06 million or 10.2%. Operating expenses increased over prior year levels primarily due to increased sales and marketing expenses associated with the direct hire of a Vice President of Business Development ($0.04 million) and securing an advertising/public relations agreement ($0.02 million). The additional costs were necessary to facilitate new product and customer growth into day and night thermal vision (M36) markets. We expect the increased general and administrative costs to continue throughout fiscal year 2012 with an overall increase of approximately 20% over the prior year level. We believe these investments in product development have contributed significantly to the new orders booked in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 and expect these changes to increase our overall footprint in the optical vision market for tactical vehicles.
Operating Income (Loss). During the three months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded an operating loss of ($0.01) million, as compared to operating income of $0.0 million during the three months ended April 3, 2011. The decline in operating income of ($0.01) million is primarily due to increased spending in general and administrative costs in the current year over prior year levels partially offset by a higher gross margin.
Net Income (Loss) applicable to common shareholders. During the three months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded a net income applicable to common shareholders of $0.14 million, as compared to a loss of $(0.12) million for the three months ended April 3, 2011, representing an decreased loss of $0.26 million. The primary reason for the decreased loss relates to the waiver of accrued dividends on preferred stock of $0.21 million in February 2012. In the three months ended April 1, 2012, we recognized deferred tax benefit $0.05 million as compared to a deferred tax expense of ($0.01) in the same period of fiscal year 2011. The change in taxes is primarily due to the effect of temporary and permanent timing differences related to intangible amortization and goodwill. Interest expense decreased by $0.02 million in the current quarter as compared to the prior year quarter.
Six Months Ended April 1, 2012 Compared to the Six Months Ended April 3, 2011
|Revenues. In the six months ended April 1, 2012, revenues decreased by (6.9)% from the respective prior period in 2011 as set forth in the table below (dollar amounts in millions):|
|Six months ended|
|Product Line||April 1, 2012||April 3, 2011||Variance||% Chg|
Revenues increased by $0.2 million, or 3.6%, on our periscope line during the six months ended April 1, 2012 as compared to the six months ended April 3, 2011. The primary increases are due to higher production levels on our glass periscope business partially offset by lower revenues on our plastic periscope lines. Based on our current backlog demand and projected orders for the remaining two quarters of fiscal 2012, we expect the periscope product line revenues to approximate the revenues in the same quarters in 2011. We continue to quote and receive awards for additional periscopes from multiple customers and are aggressively pursuing increased market share in the periscope market by drawing business away from our competitors; however, we cannot yet determine if we will be successful in gaining sufficient new additional periscope business to offset the downturn caused by the decline in new federal government orders.
Revenues from the Howitzer programs decreased $(0.7) million, or 29.2%, over the same six months in the prior year. The decline in revenue is primarily due to completion of two of our Howitzer programs in FY2011 and the completion of the one remaining Howitzer program in March 2012 with no current follow-on contracts. We do not expect any additional Howitzer revenues during the last six months of fiscal 2012 as the contracts are complete.
Sighting systems revenues increased $0.3 million, or 100%, over the same six months in the prior year, due to milestone invoices related to prototype development of M36 Day/Night vision units for a foreign customer, and M36 refurbishments and repair revenues for a domestic customer, combined with the shipment of spare of back up sights to a domestic customer in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. We expect deliveries on sighting systems to increase significantly throughout fiscal year 2012 and beyond due to the recent award of a significant $8.0 million, 5 year M36 contract booked in November 2011. Fiscal year 2012 deliveries against the program are expected to be approximately $0.7 million, while full production for the contract is not expected to commence until the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 and will continue at a rate of approximately $1.5 million per year thereafter through contract completion. In addition, we continue to ship small sighting systems orders pursuant to other contracts to both federal government and non-U.S. government customers and continue to pursue business on several substantial programs for commander weapon sighting systems and M36 thermal sighting units.
Decreases in the other product lines of $(0.4) million, or 57.1%, for the six months ending April 1, 2012 compared to the prior year period are due to lower orders and production quantities from GDLS on collimator muzzle reference system assemblies as our current contracts for these units are winding down. We expect overall revenues for the other product lines to increase by approximately 73% in fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011, primarily in the fourth fiscal quarter due to the award of the Defense Logistics Agency Gunner's Head Assemblies of $1.2 million due later in the year.
We experienced losses in our Howitzer programs as a result of unanticipated manufacturing costs due to design and technical data package issues impacting the product manufacturability. These issues resulted in increased labor and material costs due to higher scrap and extensive engineering costs incurred during the initiation phase of the programs. Included in the total realized losses against these programs is $0.8 million related specifically to one of the contracts for which Optex Systems Holdings has requested an equitable adjustment due to significant design issues impacting the manufacturability of the product. As there is no guarantee that the request will be granted in part or in full, Optex Systems Holdings realized the entire loss in fiscal year 2010 and as of October 2, 2011, all of the loss Howitzer contracts were complete. Optex Systems Holdings has been engaged in ongoing conversations with the contracting agency regarding the equitable adjustment claim and expects resolution sometime in the current fiscal year. In the event we are unsuccessful in obtaining an equitable adjustment settlement, there will be no future margin impact for on these programs as the losses have been previously recognized through the completion of the program.
Cost of Goods Sold. During the six months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded cost of goods sold of $6.8 million as opposed to $7.5 million during the six months ended April 3, 2011, a decrease of $0.7 million or 9.3%. This decrease in cost of goods sold was primarily associated with decreased revenues from the comparable six month period in the prior year, in addition to changes in revenue mix to more profitable product lines. The gross margin during the six months ended April 1, 2012 was $1.3 million or 16.1% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $1.3 million or 14.9% for the six months ended April 3, 2011. The increase in gross margin percentage for the year as compared to the prior year is primarily due to a shift in product mix toward more profitable programs and completion of the Howitzer loss programs in 2011 and 2012.
G&A Expenses. During the six months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded operating expenses of $1.3 million as opposed to $1.1 million, during the six months ended April 3, 2011, an increase of $0.2 million or 18.2%. Operating expenses increased over prior year levels primarily due to increased sales and marketing expenses associated with the direct hire of a Vice President of Business Development ($0.07 million), securing an advertising/public relations agreement ($0.05 million), increased management and employee incentive costs ($0.06 million), increased travel and exposition expenses ($0.02 million) and research and development costs ($0.02 million). The additional costs were necessary to facilitate new product and customer growth into day and night thermal vision (M36) markets. We expect the increased general and administrative costs to continue throughout fiscal year 2012 with an overall increase of approximately 20% over the prior year level. We believe these investments in product development have contributed significantly to the new orders booked in the first six months of fiscal year 2012 and expect these changes to increase our overall footprint in the optical vision market for tactical vehicles moving forward.
Operating Income (Loss). During the six months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded operating income of $0.02 million, as compared to operating income of $0.11 million during the six months ended April 3, 2011. The decline in operating income of $0.9 million is primarily due to lower revenues and increased spending in general and administrative costs in the current year over prior year levels.
Net Income (Loss) applicable to common shareholders. During the six months ended April 1, 2012, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of $(0.01) million, as compared to $(0.17) million for the six months ended April 3, 2011, representing a decreased loss of $0.16 million. The primary reason for the decreased loss relates to the waiver of accrued dividends on preferred stock of $0.21 million in February 2012. In the first six months of fiscal 2012, we recognized deferred tax benefit of $0.12 million as compared to $0.02 in the same period of fiscal year 2011. The change in taxes is primarily due to the effect of temporary and permanent timing differences related to intangible amortization and goodwill. Interest expense decreased by $0.03 million in the current year as compared to the prior year year.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash Flows for the Period from October 2, 2011 through April 1, 2012
Cash and Cash Equivalents. As of April 1, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $3.4 million. During the period from October 3, 2011 through April 1, 2012, we increased cash and cash equivalents by $1.8 million primarily attributable to collections of milestone payments made against M36 Day/Night vision contract during the six months ending April 1, 2012.
Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities. Net cash provided by operating activities during the period from October 3, 2011 to April 1, 2012 totaled $2.3 million. The primary sources of cash during this period were a $1.6 million increase in customer advance deposits associated with the M36 milestone billings and decreases in accounts receivable of $0.4 million and increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $0.2 million.
Net Cash (Used) by Investing Activities. In the six months ended April 1, 2012, cash used by investing activities for the purchase of property and equipment was $0.03 million as compared to $0.02 million in the prior year period.
Net Cash (Used) by Financing Activities. Net cash used by financing activities totaled ($0.45) million during the six months ended April 1, 2012 primarily due to the payment of ($0.5) million against the line of credit offset by $0.05 million collected for the sale of common stock.
Critical Policies and Accounting Pronouncements
Our significant accounting policies are fundamental to understanding our results of operations and financial condition. Some accounting policies require that we use estimates and assumptions that may affect the value of our assets or liabilities and financial results. These policies are described in “Critical Policies and Accounting Pronouncements” and Note 2 (Accounting Policies) to Financial Statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 2, 2011.
Cautionary Factors That May Affect Future Results
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and other written reports and oral statements made from time to time by Optex Systems Holdings may contain so-called “forward-looking statements,” all of which are subject to risks and uncertainties. You can identify these forward-looking statements by their use of words such as “expects,” “plans,” “will,” “estimates,” “forecasts,” “projects” and other words of similar meaning. You can identify them by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements are likely to address Optex Systems Holdings’ growth strategy, financial results and product and development programs. You must carefully consider any such statement and should understand that many factors could cause actual results to differ from Optex Systems Holdings’ forward-looking statements. These factors include inaccurate assumptions and a broad variety of other risks and uncertainties, including some that are known and some that are not. No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed and actual future results may vary materially.
Optex Systems Holdings does not assume the obligation to update any forward-looking statement. You should carefully evaluate such statements in light of factors described in this Form 10-Q. In various filings Optex Systems Holdings has identified important factors that could cause actual results to differ from expected or historic results. You should understand that it is not possible to predict or identify all such factors. Consequently, you should not consider any such list to be a complete list of all potential risks or uncertainties.

As of the end of the period covered by our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended April 1, 2012, management performed, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act.
