MILESTONE SCIENTIFIC INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

June 30, 2014

ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Milestone Scientific Inc. (“Milestone”) or (“our”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware in August 1989.

The unaudited financial statements of Milestone have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

These unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2013 included in Milestone’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring entries) necessary to fairly present Milestone’s financial position as of June 30, 2014 and the results of its operations for the three and six months then ended.

The results reported for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations which may be expected for a full year.

Milestone has incurred significant operating losses since its inception, through December 31, 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2013, Milestone had net income of $1,464,930. Milestone has positive cash flows from operating activities for the six months ending June 30, 2014 and 2013 of $171,628 and 8,239, respectively. At June 30, 2014, Milestone had cash and cash equivalents including Treasury Bills of $10,620,219 and a positive working capital of $13,696,852. The working capital increased by $11,352,718 as compared to December 31, 2013 working capital of $2,344,134. The positive change in working capital is due to Milestone’s capital raised of $10 million in May 2014 (net proceeds, $9,449,683), continued profitability and net cash flow resulting in an increase in current assets (cash and classification of advances on contracts from noncurrent to current) and a significant reduction in accounts payable. Milestone is actively pursuing the generation of continued positive cash flows from operating activities through an increase in revenue based upon management’s assessment of present contracts and current negotiations and reductions in operating expenses. As of June 30, 2014, Milestone has sufficient cash reserves to meet all of its anticipated obligations for the next twelve months.

 

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-12, “Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide that a Performance Target Could be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period”, which requires that a performance target that affects vesting, and that could be achieved after the requisite service period, be treated as a performance condition. Thus, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant date fair value of the award. This update further clarifies that compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. The new guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers." ASU 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in "Topic 605, Revenue Recognition" and requires entities to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 is effective retrospectively for annual or interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early application not permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, "Reporting of Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity." ASU 2014-08 provides a narrower definition of discontinued operations than that provided under existing U.S. GAAP. ASU 2014-08 requires that only a disposal of a component of an entity, or a group of components of an entity, which disposal represents a strategic shift that has, or will have, a major effect on the reporting entity's operations and financial results, should be reported in the financial statements as a discontinued operation. ASU 2014-08 also provides guidance on the financial

8


statement presentations and disclosures of discontinued operations. ASU 2014-08 is effective prospectively for disposals (or classifications as held for disposal) of components of an entity that occur in annual or interim periods beginning after December 15, 2014. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2014-08 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements. 

 

For a discussion of recent accounting pronouncement please refer to Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” in the 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Milestone did not adopt any new accounting pronouncements during the six months ended June 30, 2014 that had a material effect on Milestone’s condensed financial statements.

 

 

NOTE – 2 Basic and Diluted Net INCOME (Loss) Per Common Share

Milestone presents “basic” and “fully diluted” earnings (loss) per common share applicable to common stockholders, and, if applicable, “diluted” earnings (loss) per common share applicable to common stockholders pursuant to the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 260. Basic earnings (loss) per common share is calculated by dividing net income or loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and to be issued during each period. The calculation of diluted earnings per common share is similar to that of basic earnings per common share, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if all potentially dilutive common shares, such as those issuable upon the exercise of stock options and warrants were issued during the period.

For the six months ending June 30, 2014 and 2013, Milestone calculated basic and fully diluted earnings per common share as described in the previous paragraph. The major differences between the basic and diluted shares outstanding for the six-months ended June 30, 2014 were from 259,532 shares related to in-the-money options (see Note 5) and 2,750,491 of common shares that would be issued upon conversion of the convertible preferred shares (see Note 13).

  

 

NOTE – 3 ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

Milestone sells a significant amount of its product on credit terms to its major distributors. Milestone estimates losses from the inability of its customers to make payments on amounts billed. A majority of credit sales are due within sixty days from invoicing.    

 

NOTE – 4 TREASURY BILLS

 

The fair values of Milestone marketable securities are determined in accordance with GAAP, with fair value being defined as the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants.  As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the Company utilizes the three-tier value hierarchy, as prescribed by GAAP, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value, as follows:

 

·

Level 1 - inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

·

Level 2 - inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

·

Level 3 - inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

Milestone invests excess cash in Treasury Bills with varying maturities, which are classified as available-for-sale securities and are re-measured to fair value on a recurring basis and are valued using Level 1 inputs, which are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets in active markets:

NOTE –5 INVESTMENT IN JOINT VENTURES

In March 2011, Milestone entered into an agreement with a People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) entity Beijing 3H Scientific Technology Co., Ltd (Beijing 3H), to establish a Medical Joint Venture entity in the PRC to develop intra-articular and epidural drug delivery instruments utilizing Milestone’s patented CompuFlo technology (the “Medical Joint Venture” or “Milestone Medical”). Beijing 3H agreed to contribute up to $1.5 million to this Medical Joint Venture entity, based on progress reports from Milestone and subject to refund if the instruments are not developed because of technological problems within 30 months of the inception date. Milestone evaluates the technological feasibility of the products to be developed using the CompuFlo technology periodically and at every reporting date to establish if circumstances indicate that the technology continues to be feasible. Based on the available evidence Milestone concluded that the contingency associated with the return of capital to Beijing 3H no longer existed as of December 31, 2013 since the instruments have advanced beyond the development stage and accordingly no amounts have been accrued in the accompanying financial statements relating to this contingency. Milestone, with the consent of Beijing 3H, organized a domestic research and development corporation to which the principal shareholders of Beijing 3H and other shareholders completed a capital contribution of $1,500,000. The Medical Joint Venture entity was initially owned fifty percent by shareholders of Beijing 3H and fifty percent by Milestone. Milestone contributed an exclusive worldwide royalty-free license to use CompuFlo technology to the Medical Joint Venture which was valued at approximately $245,000 and accounted for its investment in the Medical Joint Venture using the equity method of accounting. Further, Milestone was authorized by the Medical Joint Venture to manage and oversee the development of the two products for the Medical Joint Venture. In connection with this authorization, Milestone also entered into an agreement with a significant vendor to develop the two instruments included in the Medical Joint Venture.

 

Milestone will have distribution responsibility in the U.S. and Canada. Beijing 3H will distribute products exclusively in the PRC, Macao, Hong Kong and other regions of Asia. The rest of the world responsibilities will be shared by Milestone and Beijing 3H.

 

In July 2013, Milestone entered a strategic partnership with the largest provider of specialty sales and distribution solutions for healthcare in the United States. During the three year strategic partnership, the distributor will hold the exclusive rights to market, resell, label and distribute Milestone’s CompuFlo injection technology for use in epidural applications for childbirth and other pain management needs in hospitals in the U.S.

 

In the fourth quarter of 2013, Milestone Medical issued 2 million shares of its common stock in a private placement offering at $1.50 per share ($3.0 million) in Poland. As a result of this sale, Milestone Medical received net proceeds of $2,363,000. The effect of this sale of new shares was to reduce Milestone’s ownership percentage from 50% to 45.5% (post transaction). Consistent with the equity method of accounting, the dilution in ownership percentage is treated as if the decreased percentage of ownership was the result of the sale of these shares. As a result, Milestone recorded in the fourth quarter of 2013, a $1,363,650 gain on dilution effect on the Medical Joint Venture.

Milestone recorded a loss on Medical Joint Venture of $213,193 and $343,716 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. The losses described represent 45.5% of the applicable losses recorded by Medical Joint Venture during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. Milestone recorded a loss on the medical joint venture of $47,093 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. The losses described represent 50% of the applicable losses reported by the medical joint venture during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. Milestone utilizes the equity method of accounting to recognize its financial results of the joint venture.

 

Milestone expensed $92,300 and $131,453 on behalf of the Medical Joint Venture in the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, for legal expenses related to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (510k) certifications. As part of the joint venture agreement, Milestone is to pay all fees related to the FDA certification process.

 

Milestone has an investment in the Medical Joint Venture of $760,750 as of June 30, 2014 and there are no remaining suspended losses.

 

The Medical Joint Venture’s cumulative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are $469,031 and $756,185,  respectively.

 

On July 1, 2013, Milestone and Milestone Medical signed an agreement for the reimbursement of specific expenses incurred by Milestone specifically for the benefit of Milestone Medical. The expenses related to the agreement that have not been paid are $55,424 as of June 30, 2014 and are included in accounts receivable, net. This includes $107,877 and $132,431, which are the charges for three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. The charges for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 were $12,505, respectively.

 

In the first quarter of 2013, the CEO of Milestone loaned Milestone $50,000 for use in capitalizing a fifty percent equity portion in the joint venture with Milestone Education LLC (the “Education Joint Venture”). This balance is included in the accrued expenses and other payables on the condensed balance sheet at December 31, 2013. The loan bore no interest and was paid off in April 2014.

The Education Joint Venture is expected to provide training and education to our dentists throughout the world. Milestone accounted for its investment in the Education Joint Venture using the equity method of accounting. Milestone Education LLC began operation in 2013. The Education Joint Venture incurred a loss of $8,812 and $15,643 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. Fifty percent of these losses are recorded in the condensed statement of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

 

In June 2014, Milestone agreed to invest $1.0 million through the contribution of 772 STA instruments (at a distributor price of approximately $1,295 per instrument) for a forty percent ownership in a Hong Kong based medical and dental distribution company, (“Milestone China”). The instruments will be shipped to the distributors over a period of two years. Milestone China will purchase STA handpieces on a cash basis as required. 300 STA instruments were shipped in July 2014 and will be recorded at Milestone’s cost in the investment account for Milestone China on the Balance Sheet in the third quarter of 2014. Milestone China did not begin operations until July 2014. Accordingly, no investment was recorded as of June 30, 2014.

As of June 30, 2014, there was $315,368 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested options which Milestone expects to recognize over a weighted average period of 2.25 years. A six percent rate of forfeitures is assumed in the calculation of the compensation cost for the period.

Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of Milestone’s common stock over a period commensurate with the anticipated term. Milestone uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee termination within the valuation model.

In accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC 505-50-15, all other issuances of common stock, stock options or other equity instruments to non-employees as consideration for goods or services received by Milestone are accounted for based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued (unless the fair value of the consideration received can be more reliably measured). The fair value of any options or similar equity instruments issued is estimated based on the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and the assumption that all of the options or other equity instruments will ultimately vest. Such fair value is measured as of an appropriate date pursuant to the guidance, (generally, the earlier of the date the other party becomes committed to provide goods or services or the date of performance by the other party is complete) and capitalized or expensed as if Milestone had paid cash for the goods or services.

 

NOTE – 7 CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK

Milestone’s financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and trade accounts receivable, and advances on contracts. Milestone places its cash and cash equivalents with large financial institutions and in treasury bills. At times, such investments may be in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insurance limit. Milestone has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risks. Financial instruments which potentially subject Milestone to credit risk consist principally of trade accounts receivable, as Milestone does not require collateral or other security to support customer receivables, and advances on contracts. Milestone entered into a purchase agreement with a vendor to supply Milestone with 12,000 STA Instruments (4,554 instruments are remaining on the purchase order as of June 30, 2014). As part of these agreements, Milestone has advanced approximately $1,674,000 and $2,308,000 to the vendor for purchase of materials at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. The advance will be credited to Milestone as the goods are delivered. Milestone does not believe that significant credit risk exists with respect to this advance to the contract manufacturer.

Milestone closely monitors the extension of credit to its customers while maintaining allowances, if necessary, for potential credit losses. On a periodic basis, Milestone evaluates its accounts receivable and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions. Management has provided a reserve that it believes is sufficient record accounts receivable at net realizable value as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

Milestone purchased Treasury Bills with varying maturity dates periodically with excess cash.

 

NOTE – 8 ADVANCES ON CONTRACTS

The net advances on contracts represent funding of future STA inventory purchases. The balance of the net advances as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 is $1,673,682 and $2,308,352, respectively. The portion of the advance that is expected to be utilized in the next twelve months is classified as current asset, with the remainder classified as non-current asset.

 

NOTE – 9 CUSTOMER ADVANCES

As of June 30, 2014, several customers paid in advance for future shipments of merchandise. These advanced payments will be reduced as shipments are made in 2014.

 

NOTE – 10 NOTE PAYABLE

Milestone borrowed $450,000 from a shareholder in 2008. The loan was originally a short term loan with a maturity date of January 19, 2009. In December 2008, May 30, 2012 and on March 29, 2013, this loan was extended and the due date was last fixed at January 5, 2015. The loan accrues interest at 12% per annum, interest compounds quarterly, and interest and principal is due at the maturity. The loan and its related interest was converted to 614,344 shares of common stock on August 8, 2013.

Interest expense related to the note payable for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 was $24,220 and $48,639, respectively. Accrued interest payable related to the note payable were $405,202 at June 30, 2013. Milestone had also secured a line of credit, from this shareholder, for $1.3 million which was converted into equity in 2009. However, the accrued interest remaining on the line of credit was not converted and the remaining balance at June 30, 2013 was $75,795 and accrued interest at 6%, per annum.  

Additionally, Milestone has an agreement with the manufacturer of the CompuDent and STA instruments to accrue interest on their outstanding accounts payable balance. For the quarter ending June 30, 2013, the interest expense for this indebtness was $9,445.

 

12


NOTE – 11 INCOME TAXES

Milestone’s expected federal and state income tax and benefit computed at the statutory rate (40%) on the pre-tax income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 amounted to a benefit of $219,000 and $88,000, respectively. Such benefit was recognized in the accompanying financial statements as of June 30, 2014 with recognition of a net operating loss carryforward. Due to Milestone’s history of past operating losses, which required a full valuation allowances for all of Milestone’s deferred tax assets at June 30, 2014 and 2013, no recognition was given to the utilization of the remaining net operating loss carryforwards.

 

NOTE – 12 COMMON STOCK ISSUANCES

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, Milestone issued 14,408 shares of common stock valued at $23,750 for payment of employee compensation. In addition, 195,000 shares of common stock were issued on the exercised of certain stock options valued at $62,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2014.

NOTE – 13 PREFERRED STOCK ISSUANCE

In the May 2014 Placement, Milestone issued 7,000 shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, with a stated value of $1,000 per share which raised $7 million. The Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Stock”) votes together with the Common Stock on an as converted basis and as a single class, except that such shares have class voting rights as to amendments to the Certificate of Incorporation adversely affecting the Series A Stock, increases in the number of authorized shares in that Series, issuance of additional shares of Series A Stock, increases in the size of the board prior to the time the holders of the Series A Stock no longer have a right to nominate a designee for election to the board or issuance of “senior stock” or “parity stock.”  The Series A Stock is also entitled to a liquidation preference equal to the greater of 100% of its $1,000 per share stated value or the amount the Series A Stock would receive on conversion into Common Stock and is convertible into Common Stock at $2.545 per share at the option of the holder or mandatorily convertible at this price on May 14, 2019, unless certain “threshold” prices have not been achieved prior to that date.

 

NOTE – 14 RELATED PARTY

A shareholder of Milestone is also a shareholder of a major supplier of handpieces to Milestone. In addition, he is an investor in the PRC entity, Beijing 3H, which entered into a Medical Joint Venture agreement with Milestone. Milestone purchased $1,397,784 and $1,445,040 from the supplier for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Milestone owed $395,951 and $1,024,653 to this supplier as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

In the first quarter of 2013, the CEO of Milestone loaned the Company $50,000 for use in capitalizing a fifty percent equity portion in the Education Joint Venture. The loan bore no interest and was paid off in April 2014.

 

NOTE – 15 SIGNIFICANT CUSTOMERS & GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

NOTE – 16 PENSION PLANS

Milestone has a defined contribution plan that allows eligible employees to contribute part of their salary through payroll deductions. Milestone does not contribute to this plan but does pay the administrative costs of the plan, which are not significant.

In March 2014, the Board of Directors approved the Compensation Committee’s request to amend the Chief Executive Officer of Milestone’s employment agreement to provide benefits to make payments of $203,111 per year for five years to the Executive, or as he directs such payments to a third party, to fund his acquisition of, or contribution to an annuity, pension, or deferred distribution plan or for an investment for the Executive and his family. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, $50,778 and $67,704 was charged to expenses for this commitment. The first installment payment of $203,111 for this pension was paid in July 2014.

NOTE – 17 COMMITMENTS AND OTHER

Contract Manufacturing Arrangement

Milestone has informal arrangements for the manufacture of its products. STA, single tooth anesthesia, CompuDent and CompuMed instruments are manufactured for Milestone by Tricor Systems, Inc. pursuant to specific purchase orders. The STA and The Wand Handpiece with Needle are supplied to Milestone by a contractor in the United States, which arranges for its manufacture with two factories in China.

The termination of the manufacturing relationship with any of the above manufacturers could have a material adverse effect on Milestone’s ability to produce and sell its products. Although alternate sources of supply exist and new manufacturing relationships could be established, Milestone would need to recover its existing tools or have new tools produced. Establishment of new manufacturing relationships could involve significant expense and delay. Any curtailment or interruption of the supply, whether or not as a result of termination of such a relationship, would adversely affect Milestone.

The technology underlying the SafetyWand and CompuFlo, and an improvement to the controls for CompuDent were developed by the Director of Clinical Affairs and assigned to us. Milestone purchased this technology pursuant to an agreement dated January 1, 2005. The Director will receive additional payments of 2.5% of the total sales of products using certain of these technologies, and 5% of the total sales of products using certain other of the technologies. In addition, the Director is granted, pursuant to the agreement, an option to purchase, at fair market value on the date of the grant, 8,333 shares of the common stock upon the issuance of each additional patent relating to these technologies. If products produced by third parties use any of these technologies (under license from us) then the Director will receive the corresponding percentage of the consideration received by Milestone for such sale or license. For

the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, Milestone expensed the Director’s royalty fee of $97,917 and $85,054, respectively. Milestone expensed the Director’s royalty fees of $202,114 and $178,241 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Additionally, for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, Milestone expensed consulting fees to the Director of $10,400 and $39,000, respectively.  Milestone expensed consulting fees to the Director of $24,700 and $78,000, for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

In January 2010, Milestone issued a purchase order to Tricor Systems Inc for the purchase of 12,000 STA Instruments to be delivered over the next three years. The purchase order is for $5,261,640. As of June 30, 2014, there are 4,554 STA instruments remaining on the purchase order. Milestone will receive these instruments by December 31, 2014. The advances on contracts have been classified as current and long term at June 30, 2014.

In August 2013, a shareholder of Milestone entered into a three year agreement with Milestone to provide financial and business strategic services. The fee for these services is $100,000 annually.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

The following discussions of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes to those statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q. Certain statements in this discussion and elsewhere in this report constitute forward-looking statements, within the meaning of section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

OVERVIEW

In 2014, Milestone remains focused on advancing efforts to achieve our two primary objectives; those being:

·

Optimizing our tactical approach to product sales and marketing in order to materially increase penetration of the global dental and medical markets with our proprietary, patented Computer-Controlled Local Anesthesia Delivery (C-CLAD) solution, the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia Instrument (STA Instrument) and

·

Enhancing our global reach by partnering with distribution companies in the medical sector and

STA Instrument Growth

Since its market introduction in early 2007, the STA Instrument and a prior computerized controlled local anesthesia delivery product have been used to deliver over 51 million injections. The instrument has also been favorably evaluated in numerous peer-reviewed, published clinical studies and associated articles. Moreover, there appears to be a growing consensus among users that the STA Instrument is proving to be a valuable and beneficial instrument that is positively impacting the practice of dentistry worldwide.

Global Distribution Network

United States and Canadian Market

In November 2012, Milestone entered an exclusive distribution and marketing agreement with a well-known U.S. domestic manufacturer and distributor, for the sale and distribution of the STA instruments and handpieces in United States and Canada.

International Market

On the global front, Milestone has also granted exclusive marketing and distribution rights for the STA Instrument to select dental suppliers in various international regions in Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. They include Istrodent in South Africa and Unident in the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland.

In early October 2012, the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) of the People’s Republic of China approved Milestone’s Single Tooth Anesthesia System® (STA System). In May 2014, the SFDA granted registration approval for the sale of the STA handpieces in China.

Shortly before the end of the second quarter 2009, we announced that we were refining our international marketing strategy to gain greater access to and penetration of the international dental markets for the STA Instrument, CompuDent and related disposable handpieces. The new sales strategy provides for increasing hands-on oversight and support of our existing international distribution network, while also attracting new distributors throughout Europe, Asia and South America. To assist in this endeavor, Milestone added in the spring of 2010 an International Sales Director to focus on growth of our products outside the USA and Canada.

In July 2011, Milestone entered into a definitive joint venture agreement with Beijing 3H (Heart-Help-Health) Scientific Technology Co., Ltd. (Beijing 3H) for the development, commercialization, manufacture and marketing of epidural and intra-articular injection medical instruments. Milestone Scientific holds a 45.5% interest in the joint venture and shareholders of Beijing 3H and others holds a 45.5% interest (the “Medical Joint Venture”). The Beijing 3H shareholders include a large shareholder in Milestone who is also the principal of a supplier to Milestone.

 

In late June 2014, Milestone agreed to invest $1 million for a 40% ownership in a Hong Kong organized medical and dental distribution company (“Milestone China”). Milestone’s contribution to this entity will be 772 instruments and handpieces will be purchased for cash as required. The new entity should provide a positive impact on dental and future medical business in China and other parts of Asia. Milestone China did not begin operations until July 2114 and the first shipment of STA instruments occurred in July 2014.

Milestone earned gross profits of 64% and 67% for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively and 65% and 67% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. However, the revenues and related gross profits historically have not been sufficient to support overhead, new product introduction and research and development expenses. Although Milestone anticipates expending funds for research and development in 2014, these amounts will vary based on the operating results for each quarter. Milestone incurred operating losses and negative cash flows from operating activities every year since our inception, except for 2013 and the six months ended June 30, 2014. At June 30, 2014, as a result of $10 million capital raise ($9.4 million net cash) in May 2014, Milestone has sufficient cash reserves to meet all of its anticipated obligations for at least the next twelve months.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Judgments and Estimates

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to accounts receivable, inventories, stock-based compensation, and contingencies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Accounts Receivable

The realization of accounts receivable current and long-term will have a significant impact on us. Consequently, Milestone estimates its allowance for doubtful accounts resulting from the inability of its customers to make payments for amounts billed. The collectability of outstanding amounts is continually assessed.

Inventories

Inventory costing, obsolescence and physical control are significantly important to the on-going operation of the business. Inventories principally consist of finished goods and component parts stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market. Inventory quantities on hand are reviewed on a quarterly basis and a provision for excess and obsolete inventory is recorded if required based on past and expected future sales.

Investment in Medical Joint Venture

Milestone entered into a Medical Joint Venture with a third party, Beijing 3H, for the development and commercialization of two medical products. Milestone own 45.5% percent of the Medical Joint Venture and have recorded our investment on the equity basis of accounting. Milestone’s proportionate share of expenses incurred by the Medical Joint Venture will be charged to the Statement of Operations on a periodic basis.

 

Investment in Milestone China

 

In July 2014, Milestone agreed to invest $1.0 million (whole price), 772 STA instruments for a forty percent ownership in a Hong Kong based medical and dental distribution company, (“Milestone China”). The instruments will be shipped to the distributor over a period of two years. The distributor will purchase STA handpieces on a cash basis as required. 300 STA instruments were shipped in July 2014 and will be recorded at Milestone’s cost in the investment account for Milestone China on the Balance Sheet in the third quarter 2014. Milestone China did not begin operations until July 2014.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Our long lived assets consisting principally of patents and trademarks are the foundation of our business. We review long-lived assets for impairment whenever circumstances and situations change such that there is an indication that the carrying amounts may not be recoverable. The carrying value of the asset is evaluated in relation to the operating performance and future undiscounted cash flows of the underlying assets.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue from product sales is recognized net of discounts and allowances to the domestic distributors on the date of shipment for essentially all shipments, since the shipment terms are FOB warehouse. We will recognize revenue on date of arrival of the goods at the customer’s location where shipments are FOB destination. Shipments to international distributors are FOB the warehouse and revenue is therefore recognized on shipment. In both cases the price to the buyer is fixed and the collectability is reasonably assured. Further, we have no obligation on these sales for any post installation, set-up or maintenance, these being the responsibility of the buyer. Customer acceptance is considered made at delivery. Milestone’s only obligation after sale is the normal commercial warranty against manufacturing defects if the alleged defective unit is returned within the warranty periods, which volumes have historically been immaterial.

Results of Operations

The consolidated results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to the same three and six months period in 2013 reflect our focus and development on the Wand/STA Instrument, as well as continuing efforts on identifying collaborative partners which will allow for new product development utilizing our CompuFlo technology.

The following table sets forth, for the periods presented, the statement of operations data as a percentage of revenues. The trends suggested by this table may not be indicative of future operating results.
