NOTE 1 - DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPANY AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Description of the Company

 

I.D. Systems, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) develop, market and sell wireless machine-to-machine solutions for managing and securing high-value enterprise assets. These assets include industrial vehicles such as forklifts and airport ground support equipment, rental vehicles and transportation assets, such as trucks, semi-tractors, dry van trailers, refrigerated trailers, railcars and containers. The Company’s patented wireless asset management systems utilize radio frequency identification (RFID), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, satellite or cellular communications, and sensor technology and software to address the needs of organizations to control, track, monitor and analyze their assets. Our cloud-based analytics software application for both industrial trucks and logistics assets is designed to provide a single, integrated view of asset activity across multiple locations, generating enterprise-wide benchmarks and peer-industry comparisons to provide an even deeper layer of insights into asset operations. Analytics determines key performance indicators relating to the performance of managed assets. The Company’s solutions enable customers to achieve tangible economic benefits by making timely, informed decisions that increase the safety, security, revenue, productivity and efficiency of their operations. The Company outsources its hardware manufacturing operations to contract manufacturers.

 

I.D. Systems, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in 1993 and commenced operations in January 1994.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of I.D. Systems, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Asset Intelligence, LLC (“AI”), I.D. Systems GmbH (“IDS GmbH”), I.D. Systems (UK) Ltd (formerly Didbox Ltd.) (“IDS Ltd”) and Keytroller (collectively referred to as the “Company”). All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) which are considered necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2019, the consolidated results of its operations for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2018 and 2019, the consolidated change in stockholders’ equity for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2018 and 2019 and the consolidated cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2018 and 2019. The results of operations for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the year ended December 31, 2018 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year then ended.

 

Certain amounts included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the prior period’s consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to acquisition-related expenses to conform to the current period presentation for comparative purposes.

 

Acquisition

 

On January 30, 2019, the Company completed the acquisition (the “CarrierWeb Acquisition”) of substantially all of the assets of telematics provider CarrierWeb, L.L.C. (“CarrierWeb”), an Atlanta-based provider of real-time in-cab mobile communications technology, electronic logging devices (ELDs), two-way refrigerated command and control, and trailer tracking. The assets the Company acquired in the CarrierWeb Acquisition will be integrated into the Company’s logistics visibility solutions and products. The CarrierWeb Acquisition allows the Company to offer a full complement of highly-integrated logistics technology solutions to its current customers and prospects and immediately add customers and subscriber units.

 

Merger Transactions

 

On March 13, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Pointer Merger Agreement”), with PowerFleet, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Parent”), Pointer Telocation Ltd. (“Pointer”), Powerfleet Israel Holding Company Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Pointer Holdco”), and Powerfleet Israel Acquisition Company Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pointer Holdco (“Pointer Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Pointer Merger Sub will merge with and into Pointer, with Pointer surviving as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Pointer Holdco (the “Pointer Merger”) in exchange for consideration consisting of $8.50 in cash and 1.272 shares of common stock of Parent per ordinary share of Pointer. Also on March 13, 2019, and in connection with the Pointer Merger Agreement, the Company entered into an Investment and Transaction Agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) with Parent, PowerFleet US Acquisition Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“IDS Merger Sub”), and ABRY Senior Equity V, L.P. and ABRY Senior Equity Co-Investment Fund V, L.P., pursuant to which the Company will reorganize into a new holding company structure by merging IDS Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “IDS Merger”), and pursuant to which Parent will issue and sell in a private placement shares of Parent’s newly created Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, to finance a portion of the cash consideration payable in the Pointer Merger. As a result of the transactions contemplated by the Pointer Merger Agreement and the Investment Agreement (the “Merger Transactions”), the Company and Pointer will each become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Parent. The Merger Transactions have been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies, are subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by our stockholders and Pointer’s shareholders. The Merger Transactions are expected to close in the third quarter of 2019.

 

At the closing of the Merger Transactions, the combined company will be named PowerFleet and the shares of PowerFleet common stock are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq Global Market and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange under the symbol “PWFL.”

 

Additionally, on March 13, 2019, the Company entered into a commitment letter with Bank Hapoalim B.M. providing for two five-year senior secured term loan facilities to Pointer Holdco in an aggregate principal amount of $30 million and a five-year revolving credit facility to Pointer in an aggregate principal amount of $10 million. The term loan facilities will be used to finance a portion of the cash consideration payable in the Pointer Merger and the revolving credit facility will be used by Pointer for general working capital purposes, or, at Pointer’s discretion, to finance a portion of the cash consideration payable in the Pointer Merger. The term loan facilities and the revolving credit facility are subject to customary closing conditions.

 

Pointer is a provider of telematics and mobile IoT solutions to the automotive, insurance and logistics (cargo, assets and containers) industries. Pointer’s cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform extracts and captures data from an organization’s mobility points, including drivers, routes, points-of-interest, logistics network, vehicles, trailers, containers and cargo. The pending Merger Transactions are expected to provide the Company with operational synergies and access to a broader base of customers.

 

The pending Merger Transactions will be accounted for as a business combination and the Company has been identified as the accounting acquirer. For the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, the Company incurred acquisition-related expenses of approximately $1,319,000 which are included in acquisition-related fees.

 

Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had cash (including restricted cash) and cash equivalents of $9.8 million and working capital of $14.9 million. The Company’s primary sources of cash are cash flows from operating activities and the Company’s holdings of cash and cash equivalents from the sale of common stock. To date, the Company has not generated sufficient cash flows solely from operating activities to fund its operations.

 

We believe our available working capital, anticipated level of future revenues and expected cash flows from operations will provide sufficient funds to cover capital requirements through at least May 15, 2020.
