Summary of Significant Accounting Policies



A summary of the Company’s significant accounting policies which have been consistently applied in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements follows:


Principles of Consolidation


The consolidated financial statements include Flux Power Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary Flux Power, Inc. after elimination of all intercompany accounts and transactions.




Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation for comparative purposes.


Use of Estimates


The preparation of 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, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, as well as certain financial statement disclosures. Significant estimates include valuation allowances relating to inventory and deferred tax assets. While management believes that the estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the financial statements are appropriate, actual results could differ from these estimates.


Cash and Cash Equivalents


As of June 30, 2020, cash totaled approximately $726,000 and consists of funds held in a non-interest bearing bank deposit account. The Company considers all liquid short-term investments with maturities of less than three months when acquired to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents at June 30, 2020 and 2019.


Fair Values of Financial Instruments


The carrying amount of our cash, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and accrued liabilities approximates their estimated fair values due to the short-term maturities of those financial instruments. The carrying amount of the line of credit agreement approximates its fair values as interest approximates current market interest rates for similar instruments. Management has concluded that it is not practical to determine the estimated fair value of amounts due to related parties because the transactions cannot be assumed to have been consummated at arm’s length, the terms are not deemed to be market terms, there are no quoted values available for these instruments, and an independent valuation would not be practical due to the lack of data regarding similar instruments, if any, and the associated potential costs.


The Company does not have any other assets or liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring or non-recurring basis.


Accounts Receivable


Accounts receivable are carried at their estimated collectible amounts. The Company has not experienced collection issues related to its accounts receivable and has not recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.




Inventories consist primarily of battery management systems and the related subcomponents and are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or net realizable value. The Company evaluates inventories to determine if write-downs are necessary due to obsolescence or if the inventory levels are in excess of anticipated demand at market value based on consideration of historical sales and product development plans. The Company recorded an adjustment to inventory reserve related to obsolete and slow moving inventory in the amount of approximately $317,000 during the year ended June 30, 2020.


Property, Plant and Equipment


Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation. Depreciation and amortization are provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives, of the related assets ranging from three to ten years, or, in the case of leasehold improvements, over the lesser of the useful life of the related asset or the lease term.


Stock-based Compensation


Pursuant to the provisions of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic No. 718-10, Compensation-Stock Compensation, which establishes accounting for equity instruments exchanged for employee service, we utilize the Black-Scholes option pricing model to estimate the fair value of employee stock option awards at the date of grant, which requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including expected volatility and expected life. Changes in these inputs and assumptions can materially affect the measure of estimated fair value of our share-based compensation. These assumptions are subjective and generally require significant analysis and judgment to develop. When estimating fair value, some of the assumptions will be based on, or determined from, external data and other assumptions may be derived from our historical experience with stock-based payment arrangements. The appropriate weight to place on historical experience is a matter of judgment, based on relevant facts and circumstances.


Common stock or equity instruments such as warrants issued for services to non-employees are valued at their estimated fair value at the measurement date (the date when a firm commitment for performance of the services is reached, typically the date of issuance, or when performance is complete). If the total value exceeds the par value of the stock issued, the value in excess of the par value is added to the additional paid-in-capital.


Revenue Recognition


On July 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new accounting standard FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) for all contracts using the modified retrospective method. Based on the Company’s analysis of contracts with customers in prior periods, there was no cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of the Company’s accumulated deficit as a result of the adoption of this new standard.


The Company derives its revenue from the sale of products to customers. The Company sells its products primarily through a distribution network of equipment dealers, OEMs and battery distributors in North America. The Company recognizes revenue for products when all the significant risks and rewards have been transferred to the customer, no continuing managerial involvement usually associated with ownership of the goods is retained, no effective control over the goods sold is retained, the amount of revenue can be measured reliably, it is probable that the economic benefits associated with the transactions will flow to the Company and the costs incurred or to be incurred in respect of the transaction can be measured reliably.


Product revenue is recognized as a distinct single performance obligation which for the Company’s three major customers represents the point in time that they receive delivery of the products, and for all other customers represents the point in time that the Company ships the products. Our customers do have a right to return product but our returns have historically been insignificant.


Product Warranties


The Company evaluates its exposure to product warranty obligations based on historical experience. Our products, primarily lift equipment packs, are warrantied for five years unless modified by a separate agreement. As of June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company carried warranty liability of approximately $726,000 and $361,000, respectively, which is included in accrued expenses on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.


Impairment of Long-lived Assets


In accordance with authoritative guidance for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets, if indicators of impairment exist, the Company assesses the recoverability of the affected long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets can be recovered through the undiscounted future operating cash flows.


If impairment is indicated, the Company measures the amount of such impairment by comparing the carrying value of the asset to the present value of the expected future cash flows associated with the use of the asset. The Company believes that no impairment indicators were present, and accordingly no impairment losses were recognized during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.


Research and Development


The Company is actively engaged in new product development efforts. Research and development cost relating to possible future products are expensed as incurred.


Income Taxes


Pursuant to FASB ASC Topic No. 740, Income Taxes, deferred tax assets or liabilities are recorded to reflect the future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting basis of assets and liabilities and their tax basis at each year-end. These amounts are adjusted, as appropriate, to reflect enacted changes in tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. The Company has analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where the Company is required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions. As a result, no unrecognized tax benefits have been identified as of June 30, 2020 or June 30, 2019, and accordingly, no additional tax liabilities have been recorded.


The Company records deferred tax assets and liabilities based on the differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities and on operating loss carry forwards using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of a deferred tax asset will not be realized.


Net Loss Per Common Share


The Company calculates basic loss per common share by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the periods. Diluted loss per common share includes the impact from all dilutive potential common shares relating to outstanding convertible securities.


For the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, basic and diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding were 5,118,713 and 4,364,271, respectively. The Company incurred a net loss for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, and therefore, basic and diluted loss per share for each fiscal year are the same because the inclusion of potential common equivalent shares were excluded from diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period, as the inclusion of such shares would be anti-dilutive. The total potentially dilutive common shares outstanding at June 30, 2020 and 2019, excluded from diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding, which include common shares underlying outstanding convertible debt, stock options and warrants, were 2,210,216 and 588,504, respectively.


New Accounting Standards


Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements


In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (“ASU 2016-02”). ASU 2016-02 requires a lessee to recognize a lease asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term, and a lease liability for the payments to be made to lessor, on its balance sheet for all operating leases with a term greater than 12 months. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Although ASU 2016-02 is required to be adopted at the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements (“ASU 2018- 11”), which allows for an alternative transition method of adoption by recognizing a cumulative-effect adjustment, if any, to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The Company adopted ASU 2016-02 on July 1, 2019, utilizing the alternative transition method allowed under ASU 2018-11. As a result, the Company recorded right-of-use assets and the lease liability of approximately $2.7 million and $2.7 million, respectively, on its balance sheet as of July 1, 2019. The lease liability represents the present value of the remaining lease payments of the Company’s facility lease (see Note 10), discounted using the Company’s incremental borrowing rate as of July 1, 2019. The corresponding right-of-use lease asset is recorded based on the lease liability, adjusted for the unamortized lease incentives received and the cumulative difference between rent expense and amounts paid under the facility lease. The adoption of this guidance by the Company, effective July 1, 2019, did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.


On June 20, 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2018-07, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU 2018-07 is intended to reduce the cost and complexity and to improve financial reporting for share-based payments to nonemployees for goods and services. The amendments in ASU 2018-07 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods therein. The adoption of this guidance by the Company, effective July 1, 2019, did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.


Management has considered all recent accounting pronouncements issued since the last audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and believes that these recent pronouncements will not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
