2.  Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“generally accepted accounting principles” or “GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2017 was derived from audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2017. In the opinion of management, the interim condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (including normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for such periods. Results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for any other interim period or for the full year. 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 for the Fiscal Year 2017. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”) refers to the Company’s fiscal years ending March 31 as its “Fiscal” years.

Evaluation of Ability to Maintain Current Level of Operations In connection with preparing the consolidated financial statements for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, management evaluated whether there were conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to meet its obligations as they became due for the next twelve months from the date of issuance of its third quarter of Fiscal 2018 interim condensed consolidated financial statements. Management assessed that there were such conditions and events, including a history of recurring operating losses, negative cash flows from operating activities, the continued impact of the volatility of the global oil and gas markets, a strong U.S. dollar in certain markets making our products more expensive in such markets and ongoing geopolitical tensions in Russia, North Africa and the Middle East. During the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, the Company’s working capital requirements were in-line with management’s expectations, which included the reduction in inventory as a result of a decrease in finished goods and the continued management of the timing of payments of accounts payable. The Company incurred a net loss of $0.3 million and used cash in operating activities of $3.3 million for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018.  The Company incurred a net loss of $8.1 million and used cash in operating activities of $9.2 million for nine months ended December 31, 2017. The Company also had capital expenditures related to the consolidation of its facilities in the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 which contributed to the cash used in investing activities. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $16.5 million, and outstanding borrowings under its credit facility of $11.0 million.

Management evaluated these conditions in relation to the Company’s ability to meet its obligations as they become due. The Company’s ability to continue current operations and to execute on management’s plans is dependent on its ability to generate cash flows from operations. Management believes that the Company will continue to make progress on its path to profitability by continuing to lower its operating costs and to develop its geographical and vertical markets.  The Company may seek to raise funds by selling additional securities (through the at-the-market offering or otherwise) to the public or to selected investors or by obtaining additional debt financing. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional funds on commercially favorable terms or at all. If the Company raises additional funds by issuing additional equity or convertible debt securities, the fully diluted ownership percentages of existing stockholders will be reduced. In addition, any equity or debt securities that the Company would issue may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of the holders of its common stock. 

On June 2, 2017, the Company, entered into two secured credit facilities (the “Bridge Bank Credit Agreements”) with Western Alliance Bank through its Bridge Bank division (“Bridge Bank”), with credit support provided by the Export-Import Bank of the United States through its working capital guarantee program. Under the terms of the Bridge Bank Credit Agreements, the Company may borrow up to $12.0 million on a revolving basis depending on, among other factors, the amount of its eligible inventory and accounts receivable. The Bridge Bank Credit Agreements are for a two-year period ending June 2, 2019. See Note 11—Revolving Credit Facility, for discussion of the credit facilities with Bridge Bank.

The Company maintained two Credit and Security Agreements, with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”), which provided the Company with a credit facility up to $20.0 million in the aggregate. Upon closing with Bridge Bank, the Company’s existing credit facilities with Wells Fargo, were paid off in full.

Based on the Company’s current operating plan, management anticipates that, given current working capital levels, current financial projections and the ability to borrow under its credit facility with Bridge Bank, the Company will be able to meet its financial obligations as they become due over the next twelve months from the date of issuance of its third quarter of Fiscal 2018 financial statements.

Change in Accounting Treatment During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company changed its method of accounting for warrants through the early adoption of Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-11. For purposes of presentation, the Company on a full retrospective basis, adjusted the warrant liability on its consolidated balance sheets, the change in fair value of warrant liability on its consolidated statement of operations and the change in fair value of warrant liability on its consolidated statements of cash flows to reflect this change in accounting for warrants in this report on Form 10-Q. See Note 3—Recently Issued Accounting Standards and Note 10—Fair Value Measurements for discussion with respect to this change in method of accounting for warrants.

Basis for Consolidation The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Capstone Turbine International, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary that was formed in June 2004 and Capstone Turbine Financial Services, LLC, its wholly owned subsidiary that was formed in October 2015, after elimination of inter-company transactions.
