Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation
Qumu Corporation ("Qumu" or the "Company") provides the tools to create, manage, secure, distribute and measure the success of live and on-demand video for enterprises. The Qumu platform enables global organizations to drive employee engagement, increase access to video, and modernize the future workplace by providing a more efficient and effective way to share knowledge. Qumu’s customers, which include some of the world’s largest organizations, leverage the Qumu platform for a variety of cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployments. Use cases include, but are not limited to, CEO and executive town halls, self-service webcasting, sales enablement, training, employee onboarding, internal communications, product releases and training, regulatory compliance and customer engagement. The Company and its channel partners market Qumu’s products to customers primarily in North America, Europe and Asia.
The Company views its operations and manages its business as one segment and one reporting unit. Factors used to identify the Company’s single operating segment and reporting unit include the financial information available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker in making decisions about how to allocate resources and assess performance. The Company markets its products and services through regional sales representatives and independent distributors in the United States and international markets.
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. 
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 and disclosure of contingent 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 those estimates.
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 ("SEC"). Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain financial information and footnote disclosures normally included in a complete set of 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. 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, 2021.
Liquidity and Going Concern Considerations
The Company's principal source of liquidity consists of cash and cash equivalents and potential availability under its revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank. As disclosed in the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, management concluded that the Company's history of losses and its cash resources available to execute its business plan over the next twelve months raised substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. While management continues to execute the plans noted below, the execution of those plans has not yielded sufficient results for management to conclude that substantial doubt has been alleviated.
Management’s plans to address the doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern include positioning the targeted channel-led strategy for success through efforts to expand the number of high quality channel partners, educating channel partners on the Company’s platform, tools and differentiated features, and providing performance-based incentives to channel partners to accelerate customer deals, as well as continuous assessment of the sales pipeline to forecast SaaS revenue growth driven by new customer and expansion bookings sourced through the channel. Additionally, management will actively monitor eligible accounts for the purposes of the SVB Agreement borrowing base calculation and monitor doubtful accounts and write-offs of accounts receivable, which have historically been minimal. To the extent that increasing traction in the channel-led strategy is not realized, management would continue to manage its cost optimization program to further align expenditures with the timing and amount of cash receipts from new sales and renewals of existing sales contracts. These cost optimization measures may include reductions in the Company's personnel, reduced utilization of contractors, and decreases in other discretionary spend.
The Company may also increase its cash resources by drawing on the SVB line of credit to the extent of any availability. To the extent the Company requires additional capital, it may seek capital by refinancing its existing line of credit or from offering of the Company's equity securities or both. If the Company experiences a significant shortfall in performance as compared to plan and also is unable to secure additional capital in a sufficient amount or on acceptable terms, management may be required to implement more significant cost reduction and other cash-focused measures to manage liquidity and the Company may have to significantly delay, scale back, or cease operations, in part or in full.
These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of the going concern uncertainty. If the Company cannot continue as a going concern, adjustments to the carrying values and classification of its assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of income and expenses could be required and could be material.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). This update amends the guidance on convertible instruments and the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity’s own equity and improves and amends the related EPS guidance for both Subtopics. This standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. Early adoption is permitted. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2022. The adoption of this standard did not materially impact the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In November 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-10, Government Assistance (Topic 832): Disclosures by Business Entities about Government Assistance. The objective of ASU 2021-10 is to increase the transparency of government assistance including the disclosure of the types of assistance, an entity’s accounting for the assistance, and the effect of the assistance on an entity’s financial statements. ASU 2021-10 is effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2022. The adoption of this standard did not materially impact the Company's financial statements disclosures.
