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, 2018 was derived from audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2018. 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 2018. 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.

Significant Accounting Policies  Except for the accounting policy for revenue recognition that was updated, as set forth below, as a result of adopting Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09 (defined below), there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies described in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the Fiscal Year 2018 filed with the SEC on June 7, 2018, that have had a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes.

Evaluation of Ability to Maintain Current Level of Operations  In connection with preparing the consolidated financial statements for the first quarter of Fiscal 2019, 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 first quarter of Fiscal 2019 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 global geopolitical tensions. The Company incurred a net loss of $4.9 million and used cash in operating activities of $6.0 million for the first quarter of Fiscal 2019. The Company’s working capital requirements during the first quarter of Fiscal 2019 were higher than management’s expectations, which included $2.2 million in prepayments to one of the Company’s single source suppliers that notified the Company that they were at maximum capacity and would require prepayment and a significant increase in the price of multiple components in order to fulfill the Company’s supply requirements for Fiscal 2019 and a pay down of accrued expenses of $1.0 million with respect to the Company’s one-time leadership incentive program compensation. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $19.6 million, and outstanding borrowings under its credit facility of $10.0 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 maintain low operating expenses and develop its geographical and vertical markets.  The Company may seek to raise funds by selling additional securities (through at-the-market offerings or otherwise) 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. 

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 Western Alliance Bank through its Bridge Bank division (“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 first quarter of Fiscal 2019 financial statements.

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.
