WALKER INNOVATION INC.

Unaudited Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Liquidation Basis)

June 30, 2018

(in thousands except share and per share amounts)

 

 

NOTE 1. - THE COMPANY

 

Walker Innovation Inc., a Delaware corporation (collectively, with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "Walker Innovation"), seeks to develop and commercialize its unique portfolio of intellectual property assets through licensing and enforcement operations ("Licensing and Enforcement"). In response to challenging developments in the patent licensing and enforcement environment and the cessation of the Company's custom innovation work, the Company's current plan of operations includes a carefully focused Licensing and Enforcement program, and an effort to acquire, through merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, plan of arrangement, recapitalization, reorganization or similar business combination, one or more operating businesses, either within its current verticals or in new industry segments, or control of such operating businesses through contractual arrangements.

 

After an extended period of evaluation, and in consultation with a financial advisor engaged to provide guidance in this regard, the Board concluded that none of the viable acquisition targets presented characteristics that fulfilled our criteria of increasing shareholder value and creating opportunity for the Company's investors. As a result, on June 28, 2018, the Board of Directors of Walker Innovation approved the liquidation and dissolution of the Company pursuant to a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution ("Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution" or the "Plan"), subject to stockholder approval. The Company has filed a preliminary proxy statement with respect to a special meeting of the Company's stockholders to seek stockholder approval for the dissolution of the Company pursuant to the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution and as soon as practicable intends to file a definitive proxy statement and arrange the mailing thereof to the Company's stockholders.

 

Walker Digital, LLC ("Walker Digital"), the owner of approximately 82% of the voting interest in the Company and approximately 48% of the economic interest (approximately 42% on a fully diluted basis),  has indicated its intention to vote for the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution.

 

 

NOTE 2. - PLAN OF COMPLETE LIQUIDATION AND DISSOLUTION

 

The Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution contemplates an orderly wind up of the Company's business affairs, which will include the sale, transfer or other disposition of the Company's patent portfolio to the extent those assets are not sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of prior to the filing of the certificate of dissolution. The Plan further contemplates the sale or monetization of the Company's other remaining non-cash assets, the satisfaction or settlement of its liabilities and obligations, including contingent liabilities and claims, and additional distributions of any remaining cash to the Company's stockholders. If the dissolution of the Company is approved, the Company also intends, following the filing of a certificate of dissolution, to close its stock transfer books and to discontinue recording transfers of its common stock. The Company currently estimates that the initial distribution to stockholders will occur in September 2018 and will be net of the Company's operating expenses as well as a contingency reserve of between $1.5 - $2.5 million for known and potential liabilities and other obligations of the Company during the wind up period following the initial distribution. The Company anticipates that unused contingency reserve, if any, will be the subject of one or more future distributions. The amount and timing of the distributions to stockholders will be determined by the Board in its discretion, subject to the provisions of the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution. The amount ultimately distributed to stockholders may be less than anticipated as a result of unforeseen circumstances. There can be no guarantee as to the timing and amount of distributions to stockholders, even if all of the remaining assets are sold, because there are many factors, some of which are outside of the Company's control, which could affect the timing of such distributions. Only stockholders of record as of the record date for a distribution as determined by the Board will be entitled to receive that distribution.

 

Although the Company does not believe that a precise estimate of those expenses can currently be made, the Company believes that available cash is adequate to provide for its obligations, liabilities, operating costs and claims, and to make cash distributions to our stockholders. If available cash is not adequate to provide for its obligations, liabilities, operating costs and claims, estimated liquidating distributions to its stockholders will be reduced.

 

Sale of Remaining Assets

 

The Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution if approved by the stockholders, gives the Board the authority to dispose of all of our remaining property and assets without further stockholder approval. 

 

 

We have received a valuation analysis of one of the patent families in the Company's portfolio which estimates the residual value of such patents as below the continued required maintenance fees, which taken together with the recent financial results of the Licensing and Enforcement business is indicative of the likelihood that any additional distributions to stockholders resulting from the disposition of our remaining non-cash assets are highly unlikely and, if made, will be de minimis. Management believes that any non-cash assets are not material to the financial position of the Company, and amounts realized with respect to such non-cash assets will not have a material impact on the ultimate distribution to stockholders.

 

Contingency Reserve

 

Under the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Company is required, in connection with the Plan, to satisfy or make reasonable provision for the satisfaction of all claims and liabilities.  Following the Effective Date - the date that the Certificate of Dissolution is filed with the Delaware Secretary of State, the Company will pay all expenses and other known liabilities and establish a contingency reserve, consisting of cash or other assets, that the Board believes will be adequate for the satisfaction of all current, contingent or conditional claims and liabilities.  The Company will also seek to acquire insurance coverage and take other steps the Board determines are reasonably calculated to provide for the satisfaction of the reasonably estimated amount of such liabilities.  The Company estimates the amount of the contingency reserve or the cost of insurance or other steps that may be undertaken to make provision for the satisfaction of liabilities and claims, but any such amount will be deducted before the determination of amounts available for distribution to stockholders.

 

The actual amount of the contingency reserve may vary from time to time and will be based upon estimates and opinions of the Board, derived from consultations with management and outside experts, if the Board determines that it is advisable to retain such experts, and a review of our estimated contingent liabilities and estimated ongoing expenses, including, without limitation:  anticipated salary, retention, compensation and benefits payments; estimated legal and accounting fees; rent; payroll and other taxes; miscellaneous office expenses; facilities costs; expenses accrued in connection with the preparation of our financial statements; and costs related to public company reporting matters.  We anticipate that expenses for professional fees and other expenses of liquidation may be significant.  Our established contingency reserve may not be sufficient to satisfy all of our obligations, expenses and liabilities, in which case a creditor could bring a claim against our stockholders for the total amount distributed by us to such stockholders pursuant to the Plan of Dissolution.  From time to time, we may distribute to stockholders on a pro rata basis any portions of the contingency reserve that the Board deems no longer necessary to reserve for unknown claims.

 

Liquidation Basis of Accounting

 

As a result of the approval of the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution by the Board, the Company adopted the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, effective June 28, 2018. This basis of accounting is considered appropriate when, among other things, liquidation of the Company is imminent, as defined in ASC 205-30 "Presentation of Financial Statements - Liquidation Basis of Accounting." Under the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, the following financial statements are no longer presented (except for periods prior to the adoption of the Liquidation Basis of Accounting): a condensed consolidated balance sheet, a condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss and a condensed consolidated statement of cash flows. The condensed consolidated statement of net assets and the condensed consolidated statement of changes in net assets are the principal financial statements presented under the Liquidation Basis of Accounting. Although the Plan of Complete Liquidation was approved by the Board on June 28, 2018, the Company is using the liquidation basis of accounting effective June 30, 2018 as a convenience date. Any activity between June 28 and June 30 would not be materially different under the going concern basis.

 

Under the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, all of the Company's assets have been stated at their estimated net realizable value and are based on current contracts, estimates and other indications of sales value net of estimated selling costs. All liabilities of the Company have been stated at contractual amounts and estimated liabilities are at their estimated settlement amounts, including those estimated costs associated with implementing the Plan of Dissolution. These amounts are presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of net assets. These estimates will be periodically reviewed and adjusted as appropriate. There can be no assurance that these estimated values will be realized. Such amounts should not be taken as an indication of the timing or amount of future distributions or our actual dissolution. The valuation of assets at their net realizable value and liabilities at their anticipated settlement amount represent estimates, based on present facts and circumstances, of the net realizable value of the assets and the costs associated with carrying out the Plan of Liquidation and Dissolution. The actual values and costs associated with carrying out the Plan of Dissolution are expected to differ from amounts reflected in the accompanying financial statements because of the plan's inherent uncertainty. These differences may be material. In particular, the estimates of our costs will vary with the length of time necessary to complete the Plan of Dissolution. Accordingly, it is not possible to predict with certainty the timing or aggregate amount which may ultimately be distributed to stockholders and no assurance can be given that the possible future distributions will reflect the estimate presented in the accompanying consolidated condensed statement of net assets.

 

Assessment of Assets

 

As of June 30, 2018 no value was recorded in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of Net Assets (Liquidation Basis) with respect to the Company's patent portfolio. We have received a valuation analysis of one of the patent families in the Company's portfolio which estimates the residual value of such patent as below the continued required maintenance fees, which taken together with the recent financial results of the Licensing and Enforcement business is indicative of the likelihood that any additional distributions to stockholders following the disposition of our remaining non-cash assets are highly unlikely and, if made, will be de minimis. We believe that based on these factors, the cost of maintaining the patents, including current maintenance costs, likely exceed their future cash value.

 

 

 

NOTE 3. - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation 

 

The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial reporting and pursuant to the instructions on Form 10Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The results for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the respective periods have been reflected. Intercompany transactions and balances were eliminated in consolidation. These condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company maintains its cash in bank deposit and money market accounts that, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. The Company considers money market accounts that have maturity dates of three months or less from the purchase date to be cash equivalents.

 

Short term Investment

 

The Company classifies its investment consisting of certificates of deposit with a maturity greater than ninety days but less than one year as a short-term investment.

 

Earnings (Loss) per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share ("EPS") is computed by dividing net income (loss) applicable to common stock by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other instruments that are convertible into common stock were exercised/converted or could result in the issuance of common stock. As of June 30, 2018 and 2017, the following common stock equivalents were outstanding but excluded from the calculation as their effect would have been antidilutive:

 

   

2018

   

2017

 

Common Stock options

    4,705,497       4,883,832  

Convertible Preferred Stock

    14,999,000       14,999,000  

Total Common Stock Equivalents

    19,704,497       19,882,832  

 

Use of Estimates 

 

In preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP including the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, including net assets in liquidation, and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expense for the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company measures the cost of services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the fair value of the award. For employees and directors, the fair value of the award is measured on the grant date and for non-employees, the fair value of the award is generally measured on the measurement date and re-measured on each financial reporting date and vesting date until the service period is complete. The fair value amount is then recognized over the period services are required to be provided in exchange for the award, usually the vesting period. The Company recognizes employee stock-based compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for each separately vesting tranche of each award. Stock-based compensation expense is reflected within operating expenses in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of a deferred tax asset will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income and the reversal of deferred tax liabilities during the period in which related temporary differences become deductible. The benefit of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in the Company's income tax returns are recognized in the Consolidated Financial Statements if such positions are more likely than not of being sustained.

 

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

As a result of adopting the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, we believe no new accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on our net assets in liquidation or changes in net assets in liquidation.

 

 

NOTE 4. - LIABILITY FOR ESTIMATED COSTS DURING LIQUIDATION  

 

The Liquidation Basis of Accounting requires the Company to estimate net cash flows from operations and to accrue all costs associated with implementing and completing the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution. These amounts can vary significantly due to, among other things, the costs of retaining personnel and others to oversee the liquidation, the cost of insurance, the timing and amounts associated with discharging known and contingent liabilities and the costs associated with cessation of the Company's operations, including an estimate of costs subsequent to that date. As a result, the Company has accrued the projected costs, including corporate overhead and specific liquidation costs of severance, professional fees, and other miscellaneous wind-up costs expected to be incurred during the projected period and required to complete the liquidation of the Company's remaining assets.

 

These accruals will be adjusted from time to time as projections and assumptions change. These costs are anticipated to be paid throughout the liquidation period. Based on the transition to the Liquidation Basis of Accounting on June 28, 2018, the Company accrued the following expenses expected to be incurred during dissolution and liquidation (in thousands):

NOTE 5 - SHARED SERVICES AGREEMENT

 

Walker Digital

The Company has a Shared Services Agreement ("WDM Shared Services Agreement") with Walker Digital Management ("WDM"). The cost of such services varies monthly based on the terms of the WDM Shared Services Agreement. The incurred expenses include but are not limited to, information technology services and supplies, administrative and general services and supplies and rent and utilities, and are based either on specific attribution of those expenses or, where necessary and appropriate, based on the Company's best estimate of an appropriate proportional allocation.

 

The following table represents operating expenses contributed by WDM on behalf of the Company and expenses incurred under the WDM Shared Services Agreement for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and the three and six months ended June 30, 2017:

The Upside Commerce Group, LLC

 

In December 2015, the Company entered into the Upside Services Agreement with The Upside Commerce Group, LLC ("Upside") to provide executive management, marketing, legal, financial consulting and other services. This agreement expired in December 2017. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 the Company provided approximately $25 and $61 of such services and these amounts are included in Other Income on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

 

 

NOTE 6 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

The Company is subject to claims, counterclaims and legal actions that arise in the ordinary course of business. The plaintiff in a patent suit may have defenses to any counterclaim. In addition, defendants in a patent suit may file motions seeking costs and fees against the plaintiff, which may be opposed. Management believes that the ultimate liability with respect to these claims and legal actions, if any, will not have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The Company recognizes a liability for a contingency when it is probable that liability has been incurred and when the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. When a range of probable loss can be estimated, the Company accrues the most likely amount of such loss, at no less than the minimum of the range. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the litigation accrual was not material.

 

 

NOTE 7 - EQUITY

 

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had authorized an aggregate of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share. The Company, had authorized an aggregate of 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, 14,999,000 shares of which have been designated Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. As of June 30, 2018, there were 21,184,744 shares of the Company's common stock issued and 20,094,314 outstanding. As of June 30, 2018, 14,999,000 shares of the Company's Series B Convertible Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding. Each share of Series B Preferred Stock is entitled to receive its ratable portion of the assets and funds of the Company legally available for distribution, including in liquidation, based on the numbers of shares common stock into which the Series B Preferred Stock is convertible at the then effective conversation rate (which is currently 1:1 and is expected to be 1:1 as of the date of liquidating distributions to stockholders).

The vesting of these options represents approximately $74 of incremental expense. In connection with the liquidation the Company intends to settle all outstanding vested options that are in the money. The Company estimated this amount to be $550.

 

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had no unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to all unvested stock options, see Note 4 above.

 

Item 2.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of our operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the notes to those statements. This discussion contains forward-looking statements reflecting our management's current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results and the timing of events may differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including those discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on February 2, 2018.

 

Narrative discussions of dollar figures are in thousands, except share and per share data and where the context indicates otherwise.

 

Executive summary

 

Recent Developments

 

As a result of the approval of the Plan of Liquidation and Dissolution by our Board, the Company adopted the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, effective June 28, 2018. This basis of accounting is considered appropriate when, among other things, liquidation of the Company is imminent, as defined in ASC 205-30 "Presentation of Financial Statements - Liquidation Basis of Accounting." Under the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, the following financial statements are no longer presented (except for periods prior to the adoption of the Liquidation Basis of Accounting): a consolidated condensed balance sheet, a consolidated condensed statement of operations and comprehensive loss and a consolidated condensed statement of cash flows. The consolidated condensed statement of net assets and the consolidated condensed statement of changes in net assets are the principal financial statements presented under the Liquidation Basis of Accounting. Although the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution was approved by the Board on June 28, 2018, the Company is using the liquidation basis of accounting effective June 30, 2018 as a convenience date. Any activity between June 28 and June 30 would not be materially different under the going concern basis.

 

Prior to the approval of the liquidation, through our wholly-owned subsidiaries, we historically created, commercialized, licensed and, when necessary, legally enforced our homegrown portfolio of patents, which we acquired from our affiliate Walker Digital, LLC ("Walker Digital"). In early 2015 we launched an innovation business, which consisted of Haystack IQ™ (formerly known as "The United States Patent Utility™") and custom business innovation services. In light of significant adverse developments affecting patent enforcement entities arising from certain Supreme Court holdings and legislative changes affecting our industry, our operating business lines have reported minimal revenues in recent periods and our current plan of operation, prior to the decision of the Board to pursue the Plan of Dissolution, included a carefully focused Licensing and Enforcement program, efforts to improve operational efficiencies and preserve cash, and an effort to acquire, through merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, plan of arrangement, recapitalization, reorganization or similar business combination, one or more operating businesses, either within our current verticals or in new industry segments, or control of such operating businesses through contractual arrangements. After an extended period of evaluation, and in consultation with a financial advisor engaged to provide guidance in this regard, the Board concluded that none of the viable acquisition targets presented characteristics that fulfilled our criteria of increasing stockholder value and creating opportunity for our investors. As a result, on June 28, 2018, the Board adopted resolutions seeking to schedule the special meeting and propose for stockholder approval the Plan of Dissolution.

 

Critical accounting policies and estimates

 

For a complete summary of our significant accounting policies, refer to Note 3, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies", in Part IV, Item 15 of our fiscal 2017 Annual Report.

 

Results of operations

 

In light of the adoption of the Liquidation Basis of Accounting as of June 28, 2018, the results of operations for the current period are not comparable to the prior year periods. Due to the adoption of the Plan of Liquidation and Dissolution, we no longer consider our results of operations to be a key performance measure.

 

 

Changes in net assets in liquidation for the Period ended June 30, 2018

 

Upon adoption of the Liquidation Basis of Accounting as of June 30, 2018, the Company's stockholders equity was decreased by approximately $2.5 million to arrive at net assets in liquidation of $20.2 million. The primary reason for the decrease in net assets as of June 30, 2018 was due to the accrual of estimated liquidation and operating costs during liquidation of $1.9 million, which includes an accrual for compensation and severance costs of $886. In addition, the Company intends to settle in the money vested options in the amount of $550. 

 

Estimated liquidation and operating costs during liquidation

 

The Liquidation Basis of Accounting requires the Company to estimate net cash flows from operations and to accrue all costs associated with implementing and completing the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution. These amounts can vary significantly due to, among other things, the costs of retaining personnel and others to oversee the liquidation, the cost of insurance, the timing and amounts associated with discharging known and contingent liabilities and the costs associated with cessation of the Company's operations, including an estimate of costs subsequent to that date. As a result, the Company has accrued the projected costs, including corporate overhead and specific liquidation costs of severance, professional fees, and other miscellaneous wind-up costs expected to be incurred during the projected period and required to complete the liquidation of the Company's remaining assets.

 

These accruals will be adjusted from time to time as projections and assumptions change. These costs are anticipated to be paid throughout the liquidation period. Based on the transition to the Liquidation Basis of Accounting on June 30, 2018, the Company accrued as of that date the following expenses expected to be incurred in connection with dissolution and liquidation:

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $1,088 compared to net income of $281 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

Operating expenses of $1,208 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 included other legal and consulting fees of $2, patent prosecution and maintenance fees of $24, compensation and related benefits (including non-cash compensation of $51) of $537, professional fees of $425, and general and administrative expense of $220.

Other legal and consulting expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017 were $2 and $252, respectively.  The decrease in other legal and consulting fees during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017 was mainly attributable to our more focused licensing and enforcement efforts.  Other legal and consulting expenses fluctuate from period to period based on patent enforcement and prosecution activity associated with ongoing licensing and enforcement programs and the timing of the commencement of new licensing and enforcement efforts, if any, in each period. 

 

Patent prosecution and maintenance expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased to $24 from $68 in the six months ended June 30, 2017. Patent prosecution and maintenance expenses are related to legal fees and Patent Trademark Office expenses for reexaminations and patent prosecutions.

Other Income

 

Other income includes amortization incurred in connection with the Upside warrant, as well as amounts received related to services provided in connection with the Upside Services Agreement. The Upside Services Agreement expired in the fourth quarter of 2017, and the warrant was fully amortized in the fourth quarter of 2017. Accordingly, there was no other income in the first six months of 2018, compared to the first six months of 2017 where other income totaled $229, of which $61 was received from Upside in connection with services provided and $84 of amortization was recorded in connection with the Upside warrant.

Other Income

 

Other income includes amortization incurred in connection with the Upside warrant, as well as amounts received related to services provided in connection with the Upside Services Agreement. The Upside Services Agreement expired in the fourth quarter of 2017, and the warrant was fully amortized in the fourth quarter of 2017. Accordingly, there was no other income in the second quarter of 2018, compared to the second quarter of 2017 where other income totaled $109, of which $25 was received from Upside in connection with services provided and $84 of amortization was recorded in connection with the Upside warrant.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our significant accounting policies are more fully described in Note 3 to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. 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 the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, and the related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The Company's significant estimates and assumptions include estimates of liquidation costs, stock-based compensation, the valuation allowance related to the Company's deferred tax assets revenue recognition, and establishing the fair value of its investments.

 

 

 

Liquidity

 

Our current assets were $22.8 million at June 30, 2018, including $20 million of short-term investments resulting from our investment of cash equivalents in highly liquid bank certificates of deposit. Working capital amounted to $22.8 million as of June 30, 2018. As a result of the adoption of the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution by our Board and the related winding up of business activities, the Company's cash and cash equivalents are sufficient to meet our liquidity needs for at least the next twelve months from the issuance date of this filing. Cash used in operating activities was approximately $0.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. 

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We had no significant commitments for capital expenditures and we have no committed lines of credit or other committed funding or long-term debt as of June 30, 2018. 

 

Off-Balance Sheet Transactions

 

We are not party to any off-balance sheet transactions. We have no guarantees or obligations other than those which arise out of normal business operations.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

As a result of adopting the Liquidation Basis of Accounting, we believe no new accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on our net assets in liquidation or changes in net assets in liquidation.

 

Item 3.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4.

Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We are committed to maintaining disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our periodic reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, we recognize that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and we necessarily are required to apply our judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures and implementing controls and procedures.

 

As of June 30, 2018, the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we have, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of the design and effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such terms are defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 as amended June 30, 2018. Based upon this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at the reasonable level as of June 30, 2018.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
