Basis of Presentation and Nature of Business

 

 

 

Rimage Corporation (“the Company” or “Rimage”) develops, manufactures and markets digital publishing systems that are used by businesses to produce recordable CD (“CD-R”), DVD (“DVD-R”) and blue laser discs with customized digital content on an on-demand basis. Rimage distributes its publishing systems from its operations in the United States, Germany and Japan. The Company also distributes related consumables for use with its systems, consisting of media kits, ribbons, ink cartridges and Rimage-branded blank CD-R, DVD-R and blue laser media.

 

 

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain financial information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements have been condensed or omitted. However, in the opinion of management, the financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations and cash flows of the interim periods presented. Operating results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire year, due to seasonal, operating and other factors. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as of and for the year ended December 31, 2008.

 

 

 

In July 2009, the FASB launched its Accounting Standards Codification (the “Codification”). The Codification became the exclusive authoritative source of nongovernmental U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim and annual accounting periods ending after September 15, 2009, except for rules and interpretive releases of the SEC, which are sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The Codification did not change GAAP but reorganized the literature.

 

 

 

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 and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from estimates on items such as allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns, inventory provisions, asset impairment charges, deferred tax asset valuation allowances, accruals for uncertain tax positions and warranty accruals. These estimates and assumptions are based on management’s best judgment. Management evaluates estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis using its technical knowledge, historical experience and other factors, including consideration of the impact of the current economic environment. Management believes its assumptions are reasonable in light of the current economic environment. Management adjusts such estimates and assumptions when facts and circumstances change. Illiquid credit markets, volatile equity, foreign currency and energy markets, and declines in business and consumer spending have combined to increase the uncertainty inherent in such estimates and assumptions. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results could differ significantly from these estimates. Changes in those estimates resulting from continuing changes in the economic environment will be reflected in the financial statements in future periods.

 

 

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date that the financial statements were issued, which was November 9, 2009, the date of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2009. Note 13 describes a material event that occurred subsequent to September 30, 2009 for which the conditions that generated the event did not exist as of September 30, 2009.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

 

 

In May 2007, the Company’s shareholders approved the 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2007 Plan”). The 2007 Plan provides for the grant of stock incentive awards in the form of incentive and non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock, performance units and other awards in stock and/or cash to certain key employees, non-employee directors and service providers. In May 2009, the Company’s shareholders approved amendments to the 2007 Plan, including an increase in the number of shares authorized for issuance by 500,000 shares to a total of 1,230,320 shares. At September 30, 2009, a total of 662,770 shares were available for future grant under the 2007 Plan, as amended. Effective with the approval of the 2007 Plan in May 2007, the Company may not issue any new awards or options under its Amended and Restated 1992 Stock Option Plan (the “1992 Plan”). The exercise price of stock options granted under the 2007 Plan is equal to the market value on the date of grant. Options issued to employees through March 31, 2006 under the 1992 Plan generally become exercisable over a two-year period and terminate ten years from the date of grant. Options issued to employees after March 31, 2006 under both the 1992 Plan and the 2007 Plan generally become exercisable over a four-year period. Options issued to employees through May 13, 2008 under the 1992 Plan and the 2007 Plan terminate ten years from the date of grant, while options issued effective May 14, 2008 under the 2007 Plan terminate seven years from the date of grant. Stock options granted to non-employee directors vest six months from the date of grant and terminate ten years from the date of grant. Restricted stock and restricted stock unit awards issued to non-employee directors under the 2007 Plan are subject to the risk of forfeiture and transfer restrictions that lapse one year from the date of grant.

 

 

 

In addition to awards granted under the 2007 Plan and 1992 Plan, the Company granted a non-qualified option to purchase 200,000 shares of its common stock to a newly hired executive officer on April 1, 2009. The option was granted outside of any shareholder-approved plan as an inducement to accept employment with the Company. The option has an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported by the Nasdaq Stock Market on the first day of employment of April 1, 2009, vests in four equal installments on each of the first four anniversaries of the date of grant and has a term of seven years. In other respects, the option was structured to mirror the terms of options granted under the 2007 Plan and is subject to a stock option agreement between the Company and the executive officer.

 

 

 

Under the guidance of the Stock Compensation Topic of the Codification, stock-based compensation expense is determined based on the grant-date fair value and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period for each stock-based award granted on or after January 1, 2006, and for previously granted awards not yet vested as of January 1, 2006. The Company recognizes stock-based compensation net of an estimated forfeiture rate, resulting in the recognition of compensation cost for only those shares expected to vest. Compensation cost is recognized for all awards over the vesting period to the extent the employees or directors meet the requisite service requirements, whether or not the award is ultimately exercised. Conversely, when an employee or director does not meet the requisite service requirements and forfeits the award prior to vesting, any compensation expense previously recognized for the award is reversed. The Company recognized stock-based compensation costs of $413,000 and $1,212,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, compared to $451,000 and $748,000 for the comparable periods in 2008.

The fair value of each option award is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following key assumptions were utilized in valuing option awards issued during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008:

The Company reviews these assumptions at the time of each new option award and adjusts them as necessary to ensure proper option valuation. The expected life represents the period that the stock option awards are expected to be outstanding. For all stock options granted to non-employee directors in 2008, the expected life was determined based on an analysis of historical exercise behavior and anticipated future exercise patterns, giving consideration to the contractual terms of unexercised stock option awards. Effective April 2008, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a change in the contractual term of stock options granted to employees from ten to seven years. Given the reduction in the contractual term of its employee stock option awards, the Company determined it was unable to rely on its historical exercise data as a basis for estimating the expected life of stock options granted to employees in 2008 and 2009. As such, the Company used the “simplified” method for determining the expected life of stock options granted to employees in 2008 and 2009, as specified by Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 107, “Valuation of Share-Based Payment Arrangements for Public Companies,” which bases the expected life calculation on the average of the vesting term and the contractual term of the awards. The risk-free interest rate is based on the yield of constant maturity U.S. treasury bonds with a remaining term equal to the expected life of the awards. The Company estimated the stock price volatility using historical weekly price observations over the expected life of the awards. The expected dividend yield is zero as the Company has not paid or declared any cash dividends on its common stock and does not currently have plans to pay dividends.

Cash received from the exercise of stock options was $284,000 and $1,485,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The exercise of stock options, expirations of vested stock options and lapse of restrictions on restricted stock during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 generated a net non-deductible income tax impact of $70,000, recorded as a reduction to additional paid-in capital. The exercise of stock options during the nine months ended September 30, 2008 generated an income tax benefit of $930,000, recorded as an increase to additional paid-in capital.

Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes

 

 

 

Gross unrecognized tax benefits recorded under the guidance of the Income Taxes Topic of the Codification as of September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008 totaled $219,000 and $361,000, respectively (excluding interest and penalties). Changes in gross unrecognized tax benefits during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 consisted primarily of a net increase of $65,000 and a decrease of $217,000 for tax positions taken in prior years. The decrease of $217,000 is fully offset by a deferred tax asset. Included in the balance of unrecognized tax benefits at September 30, 2009 are potential benefits of $181,000 that if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate. The difference between this amount and the corresponding amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits relates primarily to deferred federal benefits of uncertain tax positions. The Company made no other material adjustments to its unrecognized tax benefits during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

The Company recognizes accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense. Total accrued interest and penalties amounted to $47,000 and $59,000 on a gross basis at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, respectively, and are excluded from the gross amounts of unrecognized tax benefits reflected above.

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and foreign jurisdictions. As of September 30, 2009, the Company was no longer subject to income tax examinations for taxable years before 2006 and 2005 in the case of U.S. federal and German taxing authorities, respectively, and taxable years generally before 2005 in the case of state taxing authorities, consisting primarily of Minnesota, California and Maryland.

Marketable Securities

 

 

 

Marketable securities consist primarily of U.S. treasury money market securities, municipal securities, corporate securities and U.S. government agency securities with long-term credit ratings of AAA and short-term credit ratings of A-1. Marketable securities are classified as either short-term or long-term in the consolidated balance sheet based on their effective maturity date. All marketable securities, except for variable rate demand notes, have original maturities ranging from three to 36 months. Variable rate demand notes may be liquidated in less than three months from the date of purchase, but have legal maturities of greater than three months and are required to be classified as marketable securities. Marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value and any unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related tax effect, are excluded from earnings and are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income until realized. See Note 8, “Fair Value Measurements,” for a discussion of inputs used to measure the fair value of the Company’s available-for-sale securities. The Company’s marketable securities at September 30, 2009 did not include any auction-rate securities, “high-yield” sub-prime backed paper or other affected securities which are subject to significant market value declines or liquidity issues.

Derivatives

 

 

 

The Company enters into forward foreign exchange contracts principally to hedge intercompany receivables denominated in Euros arising from sales to its subsidiary in Germany. The Company’s foreign exchange contracts do not qualify for hedge accounting under the Derivatives and Hedging Topic of the Codification. As a result, gains or losses related to mark-to-market adjustments on forward foreign exchange contracts are recognized as other income or expense in the income statement during the period in which the instruments are outstanding. The fair value of forward foreign exchange contracts represents the amount the Company would receive or pay to terminate the forward exchange contracts at the reporting date and is recorded in other current assets or other current liabilities depending on whether the net amount is a gain or a loss. The Company does not utilize financial instruments for trading or other speculative purposes.

 

 

 

As of September 30, 2009, the Company had four outstanding foreign exchange contracts with a notional amount totaling approximately $651,000. These contracts mature during 2009 and bear exchange rates ranging from 1.4155 and 1.4589 U.S. Dollars per Euro. As of September 30, 2009, the fair value of foreign exchange contracts resulted in a net loss position of $10,000, which is recorded in other current liabilities.

 

 

 

As of December 31, 2008, the Company had 15 outstanding foreign exchange contracts with a notional amount totaling $2,601,000, all maturing during the first half of 2009 at exchange rates ranging from 1.2431 to 1.3540 U.S. Dollars per Euro. As of December 31, 2008, the fair value of foreign exchange contracts resulted in a net loss position of approximately $238,000, which is recorded in other current liabilities.

(1) As the Company’s foreign exchange agreement is subject to a master netting arrangement, the Company’s policy is to record the fair value of outstanding foreign exchange contracts as other current assets or other current liabilities, based on whether outstanding contracts are in a net gain or loss position, respectively. See Note 8, “Fair Value Measurements,” for additional information regarding the fair value measurements of derivative instruments related to foreign currency exchange contracts.

 

 

 

The Company enters into its foreign exchange contracts with a single counterparty, a financial institution. The Company manages its concentration of counterparty risk associated with foreign exchange contracts by periodically assessing relevant information such as the counterparty’s current financial statements, credit agency reports and/or credit references. To further mitigate credit risk, the Company’s Foreign Exchange Agreement with its counterparty includes a master netting arrangement, which allows netting of asset and liability positions of outstanding foreign exchange contracts if settlement were required.

 

 

(8)

Fair Value Measurements

 

 

 

The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the Codification establishes a framework for measuring fair value by creating a hierarchy of fair value measurements that distinguishes market data between observable independent market inputs and unobservable market assumptions by the reporting entity. Three levels within the hierarchy may be used to measure fair value:

 

 

 

 

Level 1: Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level 2: Inputs include data points that are observable such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and inputs (other than quoted prices) such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level 3: Inputs are generated from model-based techniques that use significant assumptions not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect an entity’s own estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

 

 

 

 

The Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis and the fair value hierarchy utilized to determine such fair values is as follows at September 30, 2009:

Available-for-sale securities in the preceding table are classified as either current or non-current marketable securities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Available-for-sale securities are carried at fair value based on significant observable inputs other than quoted market prices. Such inputs may include benchmark yields, reported trades, broker/dealer quotes, issuer spreads, two-sided markets, benchmark securities, bids, offers and other reference data. Foreign currency forward exchange contracts are also carried at fair value based on significant other observable market inputs, in this case, quoted foreign currency exchange rates. Such valuation represents the amount the Company would receive or pay to terminate the forward exchange contracts at the reporting date.

 

 

 

The Financial Instruments Topic of the Codification permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value. This statement also establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. Unrealized gains and losses on items for which the fair value option is elected would be reported in earnings. The Company has not elected the fair value measurement option provided for under this guidance for any of its financial assets or liabilities as of September 30, 2009, and the Company has not determined whether or not it will elect this option for financial instruments it may acquire in the future.

Common Stock Repurchase Authorizations

 

 

 

On October 17, 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 500,000 shares of its common stock. In February 2008, the Company’s Board of Directors increased the share repurchase authorization by an additional 500,000 shares, bringing total shares authorized for repurchase to 1,000,000. Shares may be purchased at prevailing market prices in the open market or in private transactions, subject to market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. The repurchase program is funded from cash on hand and may be discontinued at any time. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock. As of September 30, 2009, 422,917 shares were available for repurchase under the authorizations.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

 

 

In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued authoritative guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures. This guidance defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and requires enhanced disclosures about fair value measurements. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2008. In February 2008, the FASB delayed the effective date of this guidance to fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008 for nonfinancial assets and liabilities, except for items that are recognized and disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). Effective January 1, 2009, the company adopted the guidance applicable to nonfinancial assets and liabilities that was previously deferred. The adoption did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In March 2008, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on disclosures about derivative instruments and hedging activities. The required disclosures include information about an entity’s objectives and strategies for using derivatives, the existence and nature of credit-risk-related contingent features in derivative instruments, counterparty credit risk, the relative volume of derivative activity, the fair value of derivative instruments and related amounts of gains and losses. The Company adopted the disclosure provisions of this guidance effective January 1, 2009.

 

 

 

In June 2008, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on the treatment of participating securities in the calculation of earnings per share (“EPS”). This guidance requires all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) to be considered participating securities and shall be included in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share using the two-class method. All prior-period earnings per share data presented shall be adjusted retrospectively. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2009. As discussed under Note 11, while applicable to the Company, the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

 

 

In November 2007, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on the accounting for collaborative arrangements. This guidance applies to participants in a collaborative arrangement, defined as a contractual arrangement that involves a joint operating activity involving two (or more) parties who are both (a) active participants in the activity and (b) exposed to significant risks and rewards dependent on the commercial success of the activity. Revenues and costs incurred with third parties in connection with a collaborative arrangement should be presented gross or net by the collaborators based on criteria outlined in other applicable accounting literature. Payments to or from collaborators should be presented in the income statement based on the nature of the arrangement, the nature of the Company’s business and whether the payments are within the scope of other accounting literature. This guidance is effective for the Company as of January 1, 2009, and should be applied to collaborative arrangements in existence at the date of adoption using the modified retrospective method that requires reclassification in all periods presented for those arrangements still in effect at the transition date, unless that application is impracticable. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In April 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance for estimating fair value of assets and liabilities when market activity has decreased and on identifying transactions that are not orderly. Additionally, entities are required to disclose in interim and annual periods the inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair value. This guidance was effective for the Company for its quarter ended June 30, 2009. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

RIMAGE CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

In May 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on subsequent events. The objective of this guidance is to establish general standards of recognition and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before the issuance of the financial statements. Under this guidance, an entity must record the effects of subsequent events that provide evidence about conditions that existed at the balance sheet date and, if material, must disclose but not record the effects of subsequent events which provide evidence about conditions that did not exist at the balance sheet date. Additional disclosure required by this standard includes the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated by management and whether that is the date on which the financial statements were issued. This guidance was effective for the Company for its quarter ended June 30, 2009. The additional disclosures required by this standard are included in Note 1.

 

 

 

In July 2009, the FASB launched its Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (the “Codification”). The Codification became the exclusive authoritative source of nongovernmental U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009, except for rules and interpretive releases of the SEC, which are sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The Codification did not change GAAP but reorganized the literature. The Company adopted the Codification during the three months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In August 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends previously issued guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures. Under the updated guidance, companies determining the fair value of a liability may use the perspective of an investor that holds the related obligation as an asset. The update addresses practice difficulties caused by tension between fair value measurements based on the price that would be paid to transfer a liability to a new obligor and contractual or legal requirements that prevent such transfers from taking place. No new fair value measurements are required by this guidance. The new guidance is effective for the Company for its quarter ending December 31, 2009 and is not expected to have a material effect the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

 

 

In September 2009, the FASB ratified its guidance on two revenue recognition standards that will become effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2011, with earlier adoption permitted. Under the new guidance on revenue arrangements with multiple deliverables, when vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence for deliverables in an arrangement cannot be determined, a best estimate of the selling price is required to separate deliverables and allocate arrangement consideration using the relative selling price method. Under the new guidance on arrangements that include software elements, tangible products that have software components that are essential to the functionality of the tangible product will no longer be within the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance, and software-enabled products will now be subject to the new guidance for multiple deliverable arrangements discussed above. In the initial year of application, companies are required to make qualitative and quantitative disclosures about the impact of the changes under both standards. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new revenue recognition guidance on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

Computation of Net Income Per Share of Common Stock

 

 

 

Basic net income per common share is determined by dividing net income by the basic weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted net income per common share includes the potentially dilutive effect of common shares issued in connection with outstanding stock options using the treasury stock method. Stock options to acquire weighted average common shares of 709,000 and 732,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, and weighted average common shares 788,000 and 717,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008, respectively, have been excluded from the computation of diluted weighted average shares outstanding for each respective period as their effect is anti-dilutive. Effective January 1, 2009, the Company adopted guidance under the Earnings Per Share Topic of the Codification which requires all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) to be considered participating securities and shall be included in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share using the two-class method. As required by this guidance, the Company increased the amount of basic weighted average shares outstanding previously reported for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 by approximately 3,000 and 5,000 shares, respectively. These amounts pertain to outstanding unvested restricted stock deemed to be participating securities. The adjustment had no impact on previously reported earnings per share amounts. The following table identifies the components of net income per basic and diluted share (in thousands, except for per share data):

Subsequent Event

 

 

 

The Company announced a transition in its leadership by a press release issued on November 9, 2009, and as further disclosed in a Form 8-K filed on the same date. As described in these documents, on November 4, 2009, the Board of Directors of Rimage Corporation appointed Sherman Black, currently President and Chief Operating Officer, as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Company’s Board of Directors effective January 1, 2010.

 

 

 

As a part of the Company’s ongoing succession planning process, Mr. Black will succeed Mr. Bernard P. Aldrich who has been the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and a director since 1996. On November 4, 2009, the Company and Mr. Aldrich entered into a Separation and Release Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) that governs the terms of Mr. Aldrich’s service through December 31, 2009 and post-termination compensation.

 

 

 

Pursuant to the Separation Agreement, Mr. Aldrich will continue as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and as a director through December 31, 2009, at which time he will cease serving in both positions. Mr. Aldrich will provide the Company with a full release of claims and continue to be bound by a covenant not to compete. The Separation Agreement provides that Mr. Aldrich will receive a lump sum severance payment of $576,000 within 5 days after all rescission periods with respect to Mr. Aldrich’s release of claims have expired, the Company will pay the employer’s portion of COBRA coverage for a period of 18 months (approximately $10,000), and will pay Mr. Aldrich a lump sum payment at the end of that time of $50,000 to defray the costs of personal insurance. Any stock options held by Mr. Aldrich will continue on their current terms without modification. The Company anticipates that the expense associated with the Separation Agreement will be recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.

 

 

 

Mr. Aldrich also agreed to provide the Company with certain consulting services, primarily transition services to Mr. Black, effective for a 12-month period beginning January 1, 2010. This arrangement was memorialized in a consulting agreement pursuant to which Mr. Aldrich also agreed to extend his agreement not to compete with the Company for an additional one year after the term of the consulting agreement. In exchange for his services and the extended non-compete covenant, Mr. Aldrich will receive a monthly payment of $8,333.33. The Company anticipates that the expense associated with the consulting agreement will be recognized as related services are performed over the course of 2010.

Overview

 

 

 

Rimage develops, manufactures and markets digital publishing systems that are used by businesses to produce recordable CD, DVD and blue laser discs with customized digital content on an on-demand basis. Rimage distributes its publishing systems from its operations in the United States, Germany and Japan. The Company also distributes related consumables for use with its systems, consisting of media kits, ribbons, ink cartridges and Rimage-branded blank CD-R, DVD-R and blue laser media. These systems allow customers to benefit from cost savings by reducing or eliminating their manual labor efforts in industries such as digital photography, medical imaging and business services. As Rimage’s sales within North America and Europe have averaged 95% of total sales over the past three years, the strength of the economies in these regions plays an important role in determining the success of Rimage.

 

 

 

Rimage earns revenues through the sale of equipment, consumables and parts (included in Product revenues in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income), as well as maintenance contracts, repair and installation services (included in Service revenues in the condensed consolidated statements of income). Rimage’s recurring revenues (consumables, parts, maintenance contracts and service) comprised 61% and 59% of its consolidated revenues during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Exclusive of a small amount of capital lease obligations, Rimage has no long-term debt and does not require significant capital investment for its ongoing operations as all fabrication of its products is outsourced to vendors.

 

 

 

Results of Operations

 

 

 

Revenues. Total revenues decreased 11% and 14% to $22.4 million and $60.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, from $25.2 million and $70.6 million for the respective prior-year periods. The reduction in total revenues between periods reflects a $3.0 million and $11.4 million decline in product revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, partially offset by a $0.1 million and $1.3 million increase in service-related revenues in each respective period. The reduction in product revenues resulted from a $0.7 million and $5.1 million reduction in sales of equipment for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, and a $2.3 million and $6.2 million reduction in sales of consumable products in each respective period.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

The overall decline in equipment sales in the current-year periods was primarily impacted by a reduced volume of sales in the Company’s European market, followed by a lower volume of sales to the Company’s U.S. channel partners. The reduction in equipment sales in the year-to-date period was also impacted by a shift in the distribution of sales to lower-end Producer products with lower average selling prices. The decrease in consumable product sales consisted primarily of declines in the volume of ribbon and ink cartridge sales of $1.6 million and $4.0 million for the current year’s third quarter and year-to-date periods, respectively, and a reduction in media and media kit sales of $0.7 million and $2.2 million in the same respective periods. The growth in service-related revenues was primarily impacted by increased coverage of the Company’s installed base of systems with maintenance contracts and a higher level of maintenance contract revenue recognized in the current year-to-date period.

 

 

 

Recurring revenues, consisting of consumables, parts, maintenance contracts and service, comprised 57% and 61% of total revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, compared to 58% and 59% in the same prior-year periods. Sales of Producer product line equipment comprised 37% and 33% of total revenues in the current year’s third quarter and year-to-date period, respectively, compared to 37% and 34% for the comparable periods in 2008. Remaining revenues in each period were generated by sales of Desktop product line equipment, representing 6% of revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 5% and 7% in the same prior-year periods.

 

 

 

International sales decreased 10% and 17% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 compared to the same periods last year, and comprised 35% and 40% of total sales, compared to 35% and 42% in the same prior-year periods. The decline in international sales was driven by an 18% and 22% reduction in sales in the Company’s European market for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, partially offset by sales growth in the Company’s Asian markets of 37% and 17%, respectively. Currency fluctuations primarily affecting the Company’s European operation contributed significantly to the decline in international revenues and reduced reported consolidated revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 by 1% and 3%, respectively, relative to the same prior-year periods. The remaining decline in international sales in the current-year periods was primarily impacted by a reduced volume of equipment sales in Europe.

 

 

 

As of and for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company’s German and Japanese operations generated foreign revenues from unaffiliated customers of $21.4 million and operating income of $0.4 million. Net identifiable assets for these operations amounted to $9.9 million. These amounts pertain primarily to the Company’s German operations. Comparable amounts for the Company’s German and Japanese operations as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 were revenues of $26.0 million, operating income of $0.1 million and net identifiable assets of $9.1 million.

 

 

 

Gross profit. Gross profit as a percentage of total revenues was 50% and 48% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 48% and 45% for the same periods in 2008. The rise in gross profit as a percentage of total revenues for both current-year periods resulted primarily from reduced service costs related to improvements in the serviceability of the Company’s products and lower compensation costs stemming from workforce reductions in 2008 and the first quarter of 2009, and for the year-to-date period, a higher level of maintenance contract revenues. Also contributing to the improvement in gross profit as a percentage of total revenue in both current-year periods was a lower volume of sales rebates from sales incentive programs. Additionally, the gross margin in the third quarter 2009 benefited from an increased concentration of higher-end systems in the Producer product line relative to the same period in the prior year. Partially offsetting the favorable impact of the above for both current-year periods was a reduction in average selling prices for lower-end products in the Producer product line, impacted by increased equipment sales in the U.S. retail market segment, which generally carry lower selling prices. Additionally, sales of consumable products in both current-year periods reflect a reduced volume and concentration of ribbons and ink cartridges, which generally carry higher margins than media and media kits. The gross margin in the current year-to-date period was also unfavorably impacted by a reduced volume and concentration of Producer product line equipment sales, which generally carry higher gross margins than Desktop product line equipment or recurring revenues.

19



 

 

 

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

Future gross profit margins will continue to be affected by many factors, including product mix, the timing of new product introductions, changes in material costs, manufacturing volume, the growth rate of service-related revenues relative to associated service support costs and foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

 

 

 

Operating expenses. Research and development expenses totaled $1.5 million and $5.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, representing 7% and 8% of revenues for each respective period. Expenses for the same prior-year periods totaled $1.2 million and $4.1 million, representing 5% and 6% of revenues, respectively. Expenses in both current-year periods reflect reduced compensation related costs stemming from workforce reductions offset by a higher level of investments in new product development. Rimage anticipates expenditures in research and development to increase approximately $1 million in the fourth quarter relative to the third quarter of 2009 as a result of the timing of expenses expected to be incurred on new product development.

 

 

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 amounted to $5.0 million and $15.5 million, respectively, or 22% and 26% of revenues, compared to expenses in the same prior-year periods of $5.2 million and $17.5 million, respectively, or 21% and 25% of revenues. The decline in expenses in both current-year periods primarily reflects the impact of cost reduction measures implemented during 2008 and early 2009, including reduced compensation related costs stemming from workforce reductions and reduced expenditures for travel and marketing and promotional programs. Also contributing to the decrease in expenses in the current year-to-date period was the net impact of currency fluctuations primarily affecting the Company’s European operation, reducing expenses by $0.4 million. Partially offsetting the impact of the above for both current-year periods was an increase in employee incentive bonus expenses resulting from closer alignment of actual year-to-date revenue and operating income results to plan targets relative to the prior year.

 

 

 

Other income, net. The Company recognized net interest income on cash and marketable securities of $0.3 million and $1.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $0.7 million and $2.2 million for the same prior-year periods. The reduction in interest income in each of the current-year periods was the result of a decline in average effective yields approximating two percentage points relative to the same prior-year periods. Partially offsetting the impact of the reduction in interest rates was a $13 million and $7.5 million increase in average cash equivalent and marketable securities balances for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, compared to the same periods in the prior year. Other income for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 includes the Company’s recognition in the second quarter of a gain on sale of marketable securities of $0.3 million as a result of the sale of approximately $33 million of municipal securities and reinvestment in U.S. treasury securities. Other income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 also included net gains on foreign currency transactions of $5,000 and $47,000, respectively, compared to a net gain of $40,000 and a net loss of $123,000 on foreign currency transactions in the same periods in the prior year.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

Income taxes. The provision for income taxes represents federal, state and foreign income taxes on income. Income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 amounted to $1.8 million and $3.7 million, respectively, or 36.3% and 37.4% of income before taxes in each respective period. Income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 was $2.2 million and $4.3 million, or 35.8% of income before taxes in each period. The rise in the effective tax rate for the current-year periods primarily reflects the impact of higher state income taxes as a result of adjustments in certain state tax apportionment rates, a reduced benefit from the manufacturer’s tax deduction and the impact of tax-exempt interest income comprising a smaller percentage of pre-tax income. Partially offsetting the unfavorable effect of the above was the impact in both current-year periods of a reduction in U.S. pre-tax income resulting from a re-allocation to the U.S. parent company of expenses incurred in the Company’s Japanese subsidiary to properly reflect expenses for each legal entity, a benefit in the current-year periods from the research credit, which was not reinstated in 2008 until the fourth quarter, and a lower tax bracket from lower projected pre-tax income.

 

 

 

Net income / net income per share. Resulting net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $3.1 million and $6.3 million, respectively, or 14% and 10% of revenues for the respective periods. Comparable amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 were $4.0 million and $7.7 million, respectively, or 16% and 11% of revenues, respectively. Related net income per diluted share amounts were $0.33 and $0.66 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, respectively, compared to $0.42 and $0.79 per diluted share for the respective prior-year periods.

 

 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

 

 

The Company expects it will be able to maintain current operations and anticipated capital expenditure requirements for the foreseeable future through its internally generated funds and, if required, from Rimage’s existing credit agreement. This credit agreement allows for advances under an unsecured revolving loan up to a maximum advance of $10 million. At September 30, 2009, no amounts were outstanding under the credit agreement.

 

 

 

At September 30, 2009, the Company had working capital of $95.0 million, an increase of $32.8 million from working capital reported at December 31, 2008. The increase was primarily the result of the impact of a non-cash change in the classification of $18.7 million of marketable securities from non-current as of December 31, 2008 to current as of September 30, 2009, the sale of $6.8 million of non-current marketable securities and corresponding purchase of current marketable securities and net income of $6.3 million.

 

 

 

On October 17, 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 500,000 shares of its common stock. In February 2008, the Company’s Board of Directors increased the share repurchase authorization by an additional 500,000 shares, bringing total shares authorized for repurchase to 1,000,000. Shares may be purchased at prevailing market prices in the open market or in private transactions, subject to market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors. The repurchase program may be discontinued at any time. The Company will finance the purchase of the shares, if any, using cash on hand. During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock. The Company also intends on utilizing its assets primarily for its continued organic growth. Additionally, the Company may use its available cash for potential future strategic initiatives or alliances.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $11.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $6.8 million in the same prior-year period. The $5.1 million increase in cash generated from operating activities resulted from changes in operating assets and liabilities producing a $4.1 million net increase in cash for the nine months ended September, 2009, compared to a net use of cash of $2.0 million for the same period in 2008, partially offset by a $1.0 million reduction in net income adjusted for non-cash and non-operating items in the current-year period. Primarily contributing to the change in operating assets and liabilities compared to the comparable prior-year period was a $6.1 million favorable change in the aggregate amount of trade accounts payable, accrued compensation and accrued expenses and a $3.0 million favorable change in deferred income, partially offset by a $2.5 million larger increase in receivables. The change in trade accounts payable, accrued compensation and accrued expenses reflects a $1.6 million aggregate increase in the amount of these balances in the current-year period, compared to a $4.5 million aggregate decrease in the same period last year. These changes were primarily due to reduced payments in the current-year period for inventory purchases, in the case of accounts payable, and reduced payments for bonus accruals, in the case of accrued compensation. The favorable change in deferred income resulted from a larger volume of new maintenance contracts or renewals in the second and third quarters of 2009 compared to the prior-year. The larger increase in accounts receivable in the current period was primarily impacted by a larger increase in sales in the last two months of third quarter 2009 relative to the last two months of fourth quarter 2008.

 

 

 

Investing activities used net cash of $14.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to a net generation of cash of $15.4 million for the same prior-year period. The fluctuations in investing activities were primarily the result of $14.7 million in purchases of marketable securities, net of related maturities, during the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $19.7 million in maturities of marketable securities, net of related purchases, in the same prior-year period. Purchases of property and equipment during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 amounted to $0.2 million and $4.3 million, respectively. Capital expenditures in both periods included purchases of office equipment and manufacturing tooling, and additionally in the prior-year period, the purchase of the Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility, previously leased by the Company, at a cost of $3.9 million.

 

 

 

Financing activities generated net cash of $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and used net cash of $6.0 million in the same prior-year period. Financing activities in each period included proceeds from employee stock plans of $0.3 million and $1.5 million, respectively. Financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 also benefited from checks written in excess of the account bank balance of $1.1 million and excess tax benefits recognized as an addition to the additional paid-in capital pool of $0.7 million. Offsetting the increases in cash generated by financing activities in the prior year’s period was the Company’s repurchase of 550,762 shares of its common stock for $9.3 million.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

 

 

Management utilizes its technical knowledge, cumulative business experience, judgment and other factors in the selection and application of the Company’s accounting policies. The accounting policies considered by management to be the most critical to the presentation of the consolidated financial statements because they require the most difficult, subjective and complex judgments include revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns, inventory provisions, deferred tax asset valuation allowances, accruals for uncertain tax positions, warranty accruals, stock-based compensation and impairment of long-lived assets. These accounting policies are discussed in Item 7. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. Management made no changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In applying its critical accounting policies, management reassesses its estimates each reporting period based on available information. Changes in such estimates did not have a significant impact on earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

 

 

In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued authoritative guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures. This guidance defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and requires enhanced disclosures about fair value measurements. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2008. In February 2008, the FASB delayed the effective date of this guidance to fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008 for nonfinancial assets and liabilities, except for items that are recognized and disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). Effective January 1, 2009, the company adopted the guidance applicable to nonfinancial assets and liabilities that was previously deferred. The adoption did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In March 2008, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on disclosures about derivative instruments and hedging activities. The required disclosures include information about an entity’s objectives and strategies for using derivatives, the existence and nature of credit-risk-related contingent features in derivative instruments, counterparty credit risk, the relative volume of derivative activity, the fair value of derivative instruments and related amounts of gains and losses. The Company adopted the disclosure provisions of this guidance effective January 1, 2009.

 

 

 

In June 2008, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on the treatment of participating securities in the calculation of earnings per share (“EPS”). This guidance requires all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) to be considered participating securities and shall be included in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share using the two-class method. All prior-period earnings per share data presented shall be adjusted retrospectively. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2009. As discussed under Note 11, while applicable to the Company, the adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

23



 

 

 

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

In November 2007, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on the accounting for collaborative arrangements. This guidance applies to participants in a collaborative arrangement, defined as a contractual arrangement that involves a joint operating activity involving two (or more) parties who are both (a) active participants in the activity and (b) exposed to significant risks and rewards dependent on the commercial success of the activity. Revenues and costs incurred with third parties in connection with a collaborative arrangement should be presented gross or net by the collaborators based on criteria outlined in other applicable accounting literature. Payments to or from collaborators should be presented in the income statement based on the nature of the arrangement, the nature of the Company’s business and whether the payments are within the scope of other accounting literature. This guidance is effective for the Company as of January 1, 2009, and should be applied to collaborative arrangements in existence at the date of adoption using the modified retrospective method that requires reclassification in all periods presented for those arrangements still in effect at the transition date, unless that application is impracticable. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In April 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance for estimating fair value of assets and liabilities when market activity has decreased and on identifying transactions that are not orderly. Additionally, entities are required to disclose in interim and annual periods the inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair value. This guidance was effective for the Company for its quarter ended June 30, 2009. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

 

 

In May 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on subsequent events. The objective of this guidance is to establish general standards of recognition and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before the issuance of the financial statements. Under this guidance, an entity must record the effects of subsequent events that provide evidence about conditions that existed at the balance sheet date and, if material, must disclose but not record the effects of subsequent events which provide evidence about conditions that did not exist at the balance sheet date. Additional disclosure required by this standard includes the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated by management and whether that is the date on which the financial statements were issued. This guidance was effective for the Company for its quarter ended June 30, 2009. The additional disclosures required by this standard are included in Note 1.

 

 

 

In July 2009, the FASB launched its Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (the “Codification”). The Codification became the exclusive authoritative source of nongovernmental U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009, except for rules and interpretive releases of the SEC, which are sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The Codification did not change GAAP but reorganized the literature. The Company adopted the Codification during the three months ended September 30, 2009.

 

 

 

In August 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends previously issued guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures. Under the updated guidance, companies determining the fair value of a liability may use the perspective of an investor that holds the related obligation as an asset. The update addresses practice difficulties caused by tension between fair value measurements based on the price that would be paid to transfer a liability to a new obligor and contractual or legal requirements that prevent such transfers from taking place. No new fair value measurements are required by this guidance. The new guidance is effective for the Company for its quarter ending December 31, 2009 and is not expected to have a material effect the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

24



 

 

 

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

 

 

 

In September 2009, the FASB ratified its guidance on two revenue recognition standards that will become effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2011, with earlier adoption permitted. Under the new guidance on revenue arrangements with multiple deliverables, when vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence for deliverables in an arrangement cannot be determined, a best estimate of the selling price is required to separate deliverables and allocate arrangement consideration using the relative selling price method. Under the new guidance on arrangements that include software elements, tangible products that have software components that are essential to the functionality of the tangible product will no longer be within the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance, and software-enabled products will now be subject to the new guidance for multiple deliverable arrangements discussed above. In the initial year of application, companies are required to make qualitative and quantitative disclosures about the impact of the changes under both standards. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new revenue recognition guidance on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, the following, as well as other factors not now identified: the economic health of the markets from which Rimage derives its sales and, in particular, the strength of the economies within North America and Europe where the Company has averaged 95% of total sales over the past three years; the Company’s ability to keep pace with changes in technology in the computer and storage media industries as well as technology changes in the retail, medical and business services markets; increasing competition and the ability of the Company’s products to successfully compete with products of competitors and newly developed media storage products; the ability of the Company’s newly developed products to gain acceptance and compete against products in their markets; the significance of the Company’s international operations and the risks associated with international operations including currency fluctuations, local economic health and management of these operations over long distances; the Company’s ability to protect its intellectual property and to defend claims of others relating to its intellectual property; the Company’s dependence upon the selling efforts of the Company’s key channel partners; the Company’s ability to maintain adequate inventory of products; the Company’s reliance on single source suppliers; the ability of the Company’s products to operate effectively with the computer products developed and to be developed by other manufacturers; the negative effect upon the Company’s business from manufacturing or design defects; the effect of U.S. and international regulation; fluctuations in the Company’s operating results; the Company’s dependence upon its key personnel; the volatility of the price of the Company’s common stock; provisions governing the Company relating to a change of control, compliance with corporate governance and securities disclosures rules and other risks, including those set forth in the Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Item 1A of Part I of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this report and the Company assumes no obligation to update such forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons why actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

 

 

The Company is exposed to market risk from foreign exchange rate fluctuations of the European Euro and Japanese Yen to the U.S. dollar as the financial position and operating results of the Company’s German and Japanese subsidiaries, Rimage Europe GmbH and Rimage Japan Co., Ltd., respectively, are translated into U.S. dollars for consolidation. Resulting translation adjustments are recorded as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

 

 

 

The Company enters into forward exchange contracts principally to hedge intercompany receivables denominated in Euros arising from sales to its subsidiary in Germany. Gains or losses on forward exchange contracts are calculated at each period end and are recognized in net income in the period in which they arose. The Company records the fair value of its open forward foreign exchange contracts in other current assets or other current liabilities depending on whether the net amount is a gain or a loss. The Company does not utilize financial instruments for trading or other speculative purposes.

 

 

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

 

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Based upon such evaluation, they have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

 

 

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

 

 

There have been no changes in internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
