In conjunction with the May 2012 acquisition of Spitfire, an estimate of the fair value of the contingent consideration, $2,320,000 , was recorded based on expected operating results through fiscal 2019 and the specific terms of when such consideration would be earned.  Those terms provide for additional consideration to be paid based on a percentage of sales and pre-tax profits over those years in excess of certain minimums.  Payments are made quarterly each year and adjusted after each year-end audit.  The Company made payments totaling $342,162 during fiscal year 2016.  The Company made one payment in the quarter ended July 31, 2016 in the amount of $81,842 and one payment in the quarter ended October 31, 2016 in the amount of $ 62 , 31 2 During the second fiscal quarter of 2017 the Company made an adjustment to decrease the contingent consideration liability in the amount of $96,627 Any change in the Company’s estimate is reflected as a change in the contingent consideration liability and as additional charges or credits to selling and administrative expenses.  As of October  3 1 , 2016, the contingent consideration liability was $ 910 , 300 .



Note F - Commitments and Contingencies



As previously disclosed in detail in the Company’s Form 10-K filed for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2016, on October 25, 2011 , Maria Gracia filed suit against the Company in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.



On November 23, 2016, the U.S. District Court ruled that the plaintiff is entitled to an award of approximately $263,000 for costs and attorneys’ fees.  The expense of $263,000 was recorded as expense in the second fiscal quarter of 2017.     On November 29, 2016, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the judgment of the U.S. District Court entered against the Company in December, 2014. 



From time to time the Company is involved in legal proceedings, claims, or investigations that are incidental to the Company’s business. In future periods, the Company could be subjected to cash cost or non-cash charges to earnings if any of these matters are resolved on unfavorable terms. However, although the ultimate outcome of any legal matter canno t be predicted with certainty, based on present information, including management’s assessment of the merits of any particular claim, the Company does not expect these legal proceedings or claims will have any material adverse impact on its future consolidated financial position or results of operations.



Note G - Critical Accounting Policies



Management Estimates and Uncertainties - The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Significant estimates made in preparing the consolidated financial statements include depreciation and amortization periods, the allowance for doubtful accounts, reserves for inventory and valuation of long-lived assets , goodwill, deferred taxes, contingent consideration and other commitments and litigation .  Actual results could materially differ from these estimates.

Note G - Critical Accounting Policies - Continued



Revenue Recognition - Revenues from sales of the Company's electronic manufacturing services business are recognized when the finished good product is shipped to the customer.  In general, and except for consignment inventory, it is the Company's policy to recognize revenue and related costs when the finished goods have been shipped from its facilities, which is also the same point that title passes under the terms of the purchase order.  Finished goods inventory for certain customers is shipped from the Company to an independent warehouse for storage or shipped directly to the customer and stored in a segregated part of the customer’s own facility.  Upon the customer’s request for finished goods inventory, the inventory is shipped to the customer if the inventory was stored off-site, or transferred from the segregated part of the customer’s facility for consumption or use by the customer.  The Company recognizes revenue upon such shipment or transfer.  The Company does not earn a fee for such arrangements.  The Company from time to time may ship finished goods from its facilities, which is also the same point that title passes under the terms of the purchase order, and invoice the customer at the end of the calendar month.  This is done only in special circumstances to accommodate a specific customer.  Further, from time to time customers request the Company hold finished goods after they have been invoiced to consolidate finished goods for shipping purposes.  The Company generally provides a warranty for workmanship, unless the assembly was designed by the Company, in which case it warrants assembly/design.  The Company does not have any installation, acceptance or sales incentives (although the Company has negotiated longer warranty terms in certain instances).  The Company assembles and tests assemblies based on customers’ specifications.  Historically, the amount of returns for workmanship issues has been de minimis under the Company’s standard or extended warranties.



Inventories - Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market.  Cost is determined by an average cost method and the Company allocates labor and overhead to work-in-process and finished goods.  In the event of an inventory write-down, the Company records expense to state the inventory at lower of cost or market.  The Company establishes inventory reserves for valuation, shrinkage, and excess and obsolete inventory.  The Company records provisions for inventory shrinkage based on historical experience to account for unmeasured usage or loss.  Actual results differing from these estimates could significantly affect the Company’s inventories and cost of products sold.  The Company records provisions for excess and obsolete inventories for the difference between the cost of inventory and its estimated realizable value based on assumptions about future product demand and market conditions.  For convenience, the Company reduces inventory cost through a contra asset rather than through a new cost basis.  Upon a subsequent sale or disposal of the impaired inventory, the corresponding reserve is relieved to ensure the cost basis of the inventory reflects any reductions.  Actual product demand or market conditions could be different than that projected by management.

Goodwill - Goodwill represents the purchase price in excess of the fair value of assets acquired in business combinations.  Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 350, “Goodwill and other Intangible Assets,” requires the Company to assess goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment at least annually in the absence of an indicator of possible impairment and immediately upon an indicator of possible impairment.  The Company is permitted the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the fair value of any reporting unit is less than its corresponding carrying value .  If, after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, the Company concludes that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of any reporting unit is less than its corresponding carrying value, then the Company is not required to take further action.  However, if the Company concludes otherwise, then it is required to perform a quantitative impairment test, including computing the fair value of the reporting unit and comparing that value to its carrying value , the step one analysis .  If the fair value is less than its carrying value, a second step of the test is required to determine if recorded goodwill is impaired.  The Company also has the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for goodwill in any period and proceed directly to performing the quantitative impairment test.  The Company will be able to resume performing the qualitative assessment in any subsequent period.  The Company performed its annual goodwill impairment test as of February 1, 2016 and determined no impairment existed as of that date.  The step one analysis was performed using the income method based on a discounted cash flow approach. 



Intangible Assets - Intangible assets are comprised of finite life intangible assets including patents, trade names, backlog, non-compete agreements, and customer relationships.  Finite life intangible assets are amortized on a straight line basis over their estimated useful lives of 5 years for patents, 20 years for trade names, 1 year for backlog and 7 years for non-compete agreements except for customer relationships which are amortized on an accelerated basis over their estimated useful life of 15 years.



Impairment of Long-Lived Assets - The Company reviews long-lived assets, including amortizable intangible assets, for impairment.  Property, machinery and equipment and finite life intangible assets are reviewed whenever events or changes in circumstances occur that indicate possible impairment.  If events or changes in circumstances occur that indicate possible impairment, the Company’s impairment review is based on an undiscounted cash flow analysis at the lowest level at which cash flows of the long-lived assets are largely independent of other groups of its assets and liabilities.  This analysis requires management judgment with respect to changes in technology, the continued success of product lines, and future volume, revenue and expense growth rates.  The Company conducts annual reviews for idle and underutilized equipment, and reviews business plans for possible impairment.  Impairment occurs when the carrying value of the assets exceeds the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be earned by the use of the asset group.  When impairment is indicated, the estimated future cash flows are then discounted to determine the estimated fair value of the asset or asset group and an impairment charge is recorded for the difference between the carrying value and the estimated fair value.  As of October  3 1 , 2016, there were no indicators of possible impairment of long-lived assets.



Income Tax - The Company’s income tax expense, deferred tax assets and liabilities and reserves for unrecognized tax benefits reflect management’s best assessment of estimated future taxes to be paid.  The Company is subject to income taxes in both the U.S. and several foreign jurisdictions.  Significant

judgments and estimates by management are required in determining the consolidated income tax expense assessment.



Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities, and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.  In evaluating the Company’s ability to recover its deferred tax assets within the jurisdiction from which they arise, the Company considers all available positive and negative evidence, including scheduled reversals of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, tax planning strategies and recent financial operations.  In projecting future taxable income, the Company begins with historical results and changes in accounting policies, and incorporates assumptions including the amount of future state, federal and foreign pre-tax operating income, the reversal of temporary differences, and the implementation of feasible and prudent tax planning strategies.  These assumptions require significant judgment and estimates by management about the forecasts of future taxable income and are consistent with the plans and estimates the Company uses to manage the underlying businesses.  In evaluating the objective evidence that historical results provide, the Company considers three years of cumulative operating income and/or loss.  Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred income tax assets to an amount more likely than not to be realized.  The Company did no t have any valuation allowances at October 31, 2016 and April 30, 2016. 



The calculation of the Company’s tax liabilities involves dealing with uncertainties in the application of complex tax laws and regulations in a multitude of jurisdictions across its global operations.  Changes in tax laws and rates could also affect recorded deferred tax assets and liabilities in the future.  Management is not aware of any such changes that would have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations, cash flows or financial position.



A tax benefit from an uncertain tax position may only be recognized when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including resolutions of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits.  The Company did no t have any uncertain tax positions at October 31, 2016 and April 30, 2016.



The Company adjusts its tax liabilities when its judgment changes as a result of the evaluation of new information not previously available.  Due to the complexity of some of these uncertainties, the ultimate resolution may result in a payment that is materially different from its current estimate of the tax liabilities.  These differences will be reflected as increases or decreases to income tax expense in the period in which they are determined.



Reclassifications - Certain reclassifications have been made to the previously reported 201 6 financial statements to conform to the 201 7 presentation.

New Accounting Standards:



In May 2014, the FASB   issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers."   ASU No. 2014-09 is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that requires a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. In August 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 by issuing ASU 2015-14, “ Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Deferral of the Effective Date .”  ASU No. 2015-14 defers the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 to annual reporting periods be ginning after December 15, 2017 , with early adoption permitted but not earlier than the original effective date. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net) (ASU 2016-08), which clarifies the implementation guidance of principal versus agent considerations. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing (ASU 2016-10), which clarifies the identification of performance obligations and licensing implementation guidance. In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-12, Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients (ASU 2016-12), to improve guidance on assessing collectability, presentation of sales taxes, noncash consideration, and completed contracts and contract modifications at transition. The effective date and transition requirements in ASU 2016-08, ASU 2016-10, and ASU 2016-12 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2015-14. The Company has not yet selected a transition method and is currently evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.



In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015- 03, “ Interest — Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30) — Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs .” ASU No. 2015-03 simplifies the presentation of debt issuance costs by requiring that these costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the statement of financial condition as a direct reduction from the carrying amount of that liability. ASU No. 2015-03 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015, including interim periods within that reporting period.  ASU No. 2015-03 is required to be applied retrospectively to all periods presented beginning in the year of adoption.  The Company adopted ASU 2015-03 during the first fiscal quarter of 2017 and it did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.  The Company reclass ified   $112,917 from other assets and netted against long term debt for fiscal year ending 2016.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, “ Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory” .  ASU No. 2015-11 requires an entity that determines the cost of inventory by methods other than last-in, first-out (LIFO) and the retail inventory method (RIM) to measure inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value.  Net realizable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation. This amendment applies to all inventory that is measured using the average cost or first-in first-out (FIFO) methods. This supersedes prior guidance which allowed entities to measure inventory at the lower of cost or market, where market could be replacement cost, net realizable value or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin.  ASU No. 2015-11 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods therein, beginning after December 15, 2016.  Prospective application is required.  Early application is permitted as of the beginning of the interim or annual reporting period.  The Company does not expect the impact of the adoption of this ASU to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.



In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “ Leases” . The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement.  The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for capital leases and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available.  While the Company is still evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of the new standard on its consolidated financial statements, the Company expects that upon adoption it will recognize ROU assets and lease liabilities and that the amounts could be material.



In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, “ Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting”, a new accounting standard update intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions including: income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. Specifically, the update requires that excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies (the difference between the deduction for tax purposes and the compensation cost recognized for financial reporting purposes) be recognized as income tax expense or benefit in the Consolidated Statements of Income, introducing a new element of volatility to the provision for income taxes. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, “ Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments .” ASU 2016-13 introduces a new forward-looking approach, based on expected losses, to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables. The estimate of expected credit losses will require entities to incorporate considerations of historical information, current information and reasonable and supportable forecasts.  This ASU also expands the disclosure requirements to enable users of financial statements to understand the entity’s assumptions, models and methods for estimating expected credit   losses. For public business entities, ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and the guidance is to be applied using the modified-retrospective approach. Earlier adoption is permitted for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the new guidance and has not determined the impact this ASU may have on its consolidated financial statements.

In March, 2015, two of the Company’s executive officers invested in a start-up customer.  The executive officers’ investments constitute less than 2% (individually and in aggregate) of the outstanding beneficial ownership of the customer, according to information provided by the customer to the executive officers.  As of October 31, 2016, the Company had an outstanding note receivable and account receivable from that customer of approximately $888,000 and $1,2 00 , 000 , respectively, compared to an outstanding note receivable and account receivable of approximately $888,000 and $233,000 , respectively, at April 30, 2016.  As of October 31, 2016, inventory on hand related to this customer approximated $800,000 compared to $1,600,000 at April 30, 2016.  Sales to this customer have not been material for the three and six months ended October 31, 2016.



On January 29, 2016, the Company entered into a memorandum of understanding with this customer.  Under the subsequent agreement, effective January 29, 2016, the account receivable of approximately $888,000 was converted into a short-term promissory note.  The promissory note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum, payable at the maturity of the promissory note.  The promissory note was scheduled to mature at the earlier of October 31, 2016 , or within 10 days after the customer obtains certain equity financing, or at the closing of a sale of substantially all of the customer’s stock or assets.  As additional consideration, the Company received warrants under the agreement.  The warrants are ten years in duration and may be exercised at an exercise price of $0.01 per share and for a number of shares determined pursuant to the warrant, expected to be, at a minimum, approximately 1% of the customer’s then – outstanding equity securities.  The Company believes the warrants have nil value.  Further, the Company has been granted a security interest in the customer’s accounts receivable and authority to access and be a signatory on the customer’s deposit accounts.



On December 6, 2016 the Company extended the maturity of the promissory note to July 31, 2017 .  The promissory note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum, payable monthly.  As consideration, the Company will receive additional warrants under the agreement, which the Company currently believes have nil value.  Management continues to assess whether the recorded accounts receivable, notes receivable and inventory are recoverable and whether reserves are necessary based on the status of the customer's progress in raising capital and the results of the customer’s operations.

Overview:



The Company operates in one business segment as an independent provider of electronic manufacturing services , which includes printed circuit board assemblies and completely assembled (box-build) electronic products.  In connection with the production of assembled products, the Company also provides services to its customers, including (1) automatic and manual assembly and testing of products; (2) material sourcing and procurement; (3) manufacturing and test engineering support; (4) design services; (5) warehousing and distribution services; and (6) assistance in obtaining product approval from governmental and other regulatory bodies.  The Company provides these manufacturing services through an international network of facilities located in the United States, Mexico, China, Vietnam and Taiwan .



The Company relies on numerous third-party suppliers for components used in the Company’s production process.  Certain of these components are available only from single-sources or a limited number of suppliers.  In addition, a customer’s specifications may require the Company to obtain components from a single-source or a small number of suppliers.  The loss of any such suppliers could have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations.  Further, the Company could operate at a cost disadvantage compared to competitors who have greater direct buying power with suppliers.  The Company does not enter into long-term purchase agreements with major or single-source suppliers.  The Company believes that short-term purchase orders with its suppliers provides flexibility, given that the Company’s orders are based on the changing needs of its customers.



Sales can be a misleading indicator of the Company’s financial performance.  Sales levels can vary considerably among customers and products depending on the t ype of services (consignment versus turnkey) rendered by the Company and the demand by customers.  Consignment orders require the Company to perform manufacturing services on components and other materials supplied by a customer, and the Company charges only for its labor, overhead and manufacturing costs, plus a profit.  In the case of turnkey orders, the Company provides, in addition to manufacturing services, the components and other materials used in assembly.  Turnkey contracts, in general, have a higher dollar volume of sales   for each given assembly, owing to inclusion of the cost of components and other materials in net sales and cost of goods sold . Variations in the number of turnkey orders compared to consignment orders can lead to fluctuations in the Company’s revenue and gross margin levels.  Consignment orders accounted for less than 5% of the Company’s revenues for the three and six month periods ended October 31, 2016 and 2015 , respectively.



The Company did experience a sequential increase in sales from the first fiscal quarter of 2017, but not the increase it anticipated.  Sales were down 5 .5 % for the quarter ended October 31, 2016 compared to the same period in the prior year. Sales for the first six months of fiscal 2017 are down 6. 9 % compared to the same period in fiscal 2016.  During the quarter ended October 31, 2016 customers continued to require lower volumes than forecasted and orders continued to be modestly pushed out.  This activity was generally across the board for most markets the Company serves and the Company believes it continues to reflect a sluggish domestic economy.  Looking forward to the third fiscal quarter of 2017 the quarter may result in a net l oss. This is primarily driven by the holidays and the related down time th at the Company sees during its third fiscal quarter and expectation that customers will be re-evaluating inventory levels during December and January.  On a positive note, the post-election demand from customers has been positive. The Company’s customers are more optimistic heading into calendar 2017.  Recently the Company has experienced some acceleration in orders. However, it will take time to procure the material to support those orders.  Several new significant customers have awarded business to the Company which should begin in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2017 and grow from there.  The Company believes these new customers, as well as some new programs from current

customers, will provide the revenue growth it has been anticipating.  The Company will monitor customer demand closely and manage accordingly.

October 31, 201 6

 

 

8.3% of net sales for the six month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to $10,579 ,428 or 7.9% This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in bonus expense.

Income Tax Expense  



The income tax benefit was $ 6,679 for the three month s period ended October   31, 2016 compar ed to an income tax expense of $700,738   for the same period in the prior fiscal year.     The de crease in income tax expense for the three month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to the same period in the previous year is the result of lower pretax income recognized in the U.S .   and foreign jurisdictions .  The Company’s effective tax rate was negative 25 . 1 % and   37.7 % for the quarter s ended October 31, 2016 and 2015 , respectively.  The effective tax rate is lower for the quarter ended October 31, 2016 than the quarter ended October 31, 2015   due to   more   taxable income being recognized   in foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates for the period ended October 31, 2016 .  The income tax expense was $73,582 for the six month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to income tax expense of $1,004,255   for the same period in the prior year.  The Company’s effective tax rate was 29.0% and 35.6% for the six months ended October 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The effective tax rate is lower for the six month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to the same period in the previous year due to more taxable income being recognized in foreign jurisdictions with lower tax rates for the period ended October 31, 2016.



Net Income  



Net income de creased to $33,295   for the three month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to net income of $ 1,156,298 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.     Net income de creased to $179,892 for the six month period ended October 31, 2016 compared to net income of $1,815,104 for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  Basic and diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 201 7   wer e   $0.01 each ,   compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.28   and $0.27 respectively, for the same pe riod in the prior fiscal year.  Basic and diluted earnings per share for the six month period ended October 31, 2016 were $0.04   each ,   compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.44 and $0.43 respectively, for the same period in the prior fiscal year.  The decreases in net income and earnings per share are due to the results of operations described above, mainly from a decrease in net sales.

Operating Activities.



Cash flow used in operating activities was $ 1,336,252 for the six months ended October 31, 2016 During the first six months of fiscal year 201 7 , cash flow used in operating activities was primarily the result of an increase in inventory of $ 2 , 305 , 356 and accounts receivable of $ 3 , 396 , 989 .  Cash flow used in operating activities was partially offset by net income , an increase in accounts payable of

O n May 31, 2012, the Company entered into a lease agreement in Tijuana, MX, to rent 112,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space.  Under the terms of the lease agreement, the Company receives incentives over the life of the lease, which extends through November 2018.  The amount of the deferred rent income for the three and six month period s ended October 31, 201 6 was $ 30 , 860 and $61,719, respectively .  The amount of the deferred rent recorded at October 31, 2016 and April 30, 2016 was $ 291,211 and $352,931, respectively .



In September 2015, the Company entered into a real estate lease agreement in San Diego, CA, to rent 30,240 square feet of manufacturing space.  The term of lease extends to August 2016 with monthly payments of $17,539.  On March 10, 2016 the term of the lease was extended to August 2019.



The Company provides funds for salaries, wages, overhead and capital expenditure items as necessary to operate its wholly-owned Mexican, Vietnam and Chinese subsidiaries and the Taiwan international procurement office.  The Company provides funding, as needed, in U.S. dollars, which are exchanged for Pesos, Dong, Renminbi, and New Taiwan dollars The fluctuation of currencies from time to time, without an equal or greater increase in inflation, could have a material impact on the financial results of the Company.     The impact of currency fluctuation for the six month period ended October 31 , 201 6   resulted in a foreign currenc y   loss of $ 197 , 614 com pared to a foreign currency loss of approximately $ 19,868 for the same period in the prior year Foreign currency gains or losses are recorded in the cost of products sold.  During the first six months of fiscal year 201 7 , the Company’s U.S. operations paid approximately $ 22 , 72 0 , 000   to its foreign subsidiaries for services provided.



The Company has not recorded U.S. income taxes on the undistributed earnings of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries.  The earnings of the foreign subsidiaries have been, and under fiscal April 30, 201 7 plans, will continue to be indefinitely reinvested, and as a result, no deferred tax liability was

recorded at October  3 1 , 201 6 .  The cumulative amount of unremitted earnings for which U.S. income taxes h ave not been recorded is $ 13, 578 ,000   as of October 31, 201 6 .  The amount of U.S. income taxes on these earnings is impractical to compute due to the complexities of the hypothetical calculation .    



The Company anticipates that its credit facilities, cash flow from operations and leasing resources are adequate to meet its working capital requirements and capital expenditures for the next twelve months at the Company’s current level of business.  The Company has received forecasts from current customers for increased business that would require additional investments in inventory.  The Company is in the process of evaluating alternative lenders for its senior secured credit facility and anticipates making a decision in the third fiscal quarter of 2017.



In addition, in the event the Company desires to expand its operations, its business grows more rapidly than expected, the current economic climate deteriorates, customers delay payments, or the Company desires to consummate an acquisition, additional financing resources may be necessary in the current or future fiscal years.  There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain equity o r debt financing at acceptable terms, or at all, in the future.  There is no assurance that the Company will be able to retain or renew its credit agreements in the future, or that any retention or renewal will be on the same terms as currently exist.



The impact of inflation on the Company’s net sales, revenues and incomes from continuing operations for the past fiscal years has been minimal.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.



Disclosure Controls:



Our management, including our President and Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), Rules 13a-1 5(e) and 15(d)-15(e)) as of October 31, 201 6 .  Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and our President and Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of the end of the period covered by this report.



Internal Controls:



There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting du ring the three months ended October 31, 201 6 , that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.  Our internal controls over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. GAAP.



On May 14, 2013, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treasury Commission (“ COSO ”) issued an updated version of its Internal Control - Integrated Framework (the “2013 Framework”) which officially superseded COSO’s earlier Internal Control-Integrated Framework (1992) (the “1992 Framework”) on December 15, 2014. Originally issued in 1992, the framework helps organizations design, implement and evaluate the effectiveness of internal control concepts and simplify the ir use and application. None of COSO, the Securities and Exchange Commission or any other regulatory body has mandated adoption of the 2013 Framework by a specified date. We intend to perform an analysis to evaluate what changes to our control environment, if any, would be needed to successfully implement the 2013 Framework. Until such time as such analysis and any related transition to the 2013 Framework is complete, we will continue to use the 1992 Framework in connection with our assessment of internal control.
