FARO Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

 

(1)

Late in the fourth quarter of 2018, during an internal review we preliminarily determined that certain of our pricing practices may have resulted in the U.S. Government being overcharged under our General Services Administration ("GSA") Federal Supply Schedule contracts (the "Contracts") (the "GSA Matter"). In fourth quarter 2018, we reduced our total sales by an estimated cumulative adjustment of $4.8 million. We also retained outside legal counsel and forensic accountants to conduct a comprehensive review of our pricing and other practices under the Contracts (the "Review"). On July 15, 2019, we submitted a report to the GSA and its Office of Inspector General setting forth the findings of the Review. Based on the results of the Review, in second quarter 2019 we reduced our total sales by an incremental $5.8 million (the "GSA sales adjustment") and recorded imputed interest expense of $0.1 million and $0.6 million related to the GSA Matter for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.



(2)

We exclude stock-based compensation, which is non-cash, from the non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes that such exclusion provides a better comparison of results of ongoing operations for current and future periods with such results from past periods. This adjustment includes accelerated vesting of equity awards in connection with the transition of our prior executives totaling $1.6 million and $3.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.



(3)

During the third quarter of 2018, we performed an analysis of our inventory reserves in connection with our recent new product introductions and acquisitions and recorded a charge of $4.7 million, or approximately 5% of total inventory, increasing our reserve for excess and obsolete inventory based on the determination that quantities on-hand for certain legacy products exceeded our revised sales projections.



(4)

In connection with the GSA Matter, we retained outside legal counsel and forensic accountants to conduct the Review, which resulted in $1.2 million in advisory fees incurred during the first nine months of 2019.



(5)

On April 27, 2018, we invested $1.8 million in present4D GmbH ("present4D"), a software solutions provider for professional virtual reality presentations and training environments, in the form of an equity capital contribution. During the second quarter of 2019, we determined it is more likely than not that we will not recover our cost basis in present4D and recorded an impairment charge of $1.5 million, which is included in Other expense, net.



(6) 

Driven primarily by return-to-provision adjustments identified in the preparation of our 2018 U.S. tax return and changes in our reserve for uncertain tax positions due to a change in our judgment on the recognition of a tax position.
