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, 2020 was derived from audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2020. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. 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 2020 filed with the SEC on June 29, 2020. 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  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 2020 filed with the SEC on June 29, 2020, that have had a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes.

Reverse Stock Split  At the annual meeting of stockholders of the Company held on August 29, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amendment”) to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) at a ratio in the range of one-for-five (1:5) to one-for-ten (1:10). Pursuant to such authority granted by the stockholders, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved a one-for-ten (1:10) reverse stock split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the Common Stock and the filing of the Amendment. The Certificate of Amendment was filed with the Secretary of State of Delaware, effective on October 21, 2019 and the Reverse Stock Split became effective as of that date. Accordingly, all references to numbers of common shares, including the number of common shares on an as-if-converted basis, per-share data and share prices and exercise prices in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split on a retroactive basis.

Evaluation of Ability to Maintain Current Level of Operations  In connection with the preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended September 30, 2020, 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 over the next twelve months from the date of issuance of the Company’s second quarter of Fiscal 2021 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 COVID-19 pandemic, volatility of the global oil and gas markets, a strong U.S. dollar in certain markets making its products more expensive in such markets and ongoing global geopolitical tensions. The Company incurred a net loss of $6.0 million and used net cash in operating activities of $20,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2020. The Company’s working capital requirements during the six months ended September 30, 2020 were in-line with management’s expectations, which included reductions in accounts receivable, inventory, and accounts payable primarily due to the Company managing to lower revenue levels. The Company’s net loss improved during the six months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the six months ended September 30, 2019 primarily due to reduced overhead and operating expenses resulting from the Company’s COVID-19 Business Continuity Plan described below, as well as reduced FPP costs as the Company’s reliability improved due to the reduced impact of the part defect from a supplier first identified during the first quarter of Fiscal 2019. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $16.8 million, and outstanding debt of $32.0 million at fair value (see Note 11 – Term Note Payable for further discussion of the outstanding debt).

Management evaluated these conditions in relation to the Company’s ability to meet its obligations as they become due over the next twelve months from the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company’s ability to continue current operations and to execute on management’s plans is dependent on its ability to generate sufficient 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). 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, the fully diluted ownership percentages of existing stockholders will be reduced. In addition, any equity that the Company would issue may include 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 funds received under debt agreements as further described in Note 18 – Subsequent Events, 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 the Company’s second quarter of Fiscal 2021 interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

Company Response to COVID-19

In March 2020, the Company began to monitor the global effects of “COVID-19,” an infectious disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS CoV-2) that was first detected in November 2019 in the city of Wuhan, China. The subsequent spread of COVID-19 to the U.S. and many other parts of the world led the World Health Organization (“WHO”) to characterize COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Thereafter, most U.S. states imposed “stay-at-home” orders on their populations to stem the spread of COVID-19. Of specific interest to the Company, stay-at-home orders were imposed in the state of California on March 20, 2020.

On March 23, 2020 the Company enacted a Business Continuity Plan in response to COVID-19. Beginning March 30, 2020, the Company furloughed 52 employees, leaving behind only staff deemed essential for day-to-day administrative operations for a minimum period of 45 days. The Company’s Leadership Team volunteered to take a 25% temporary salary cut as well as the Fiscal 2020 Executive Bonus in equity in lieu of cash if earned. In addition, 25 other top Company managers volunteered to take a similar 15% reduction in salary. Several employees returned to work June 1, 2020, most with the 15% voluntary salary cuts, with others returning in a staggered manner through the end of September 2020. Additionally, in March 2020, the Board voted to take a temporary 25% reduction in base cash retainer in support of the Company’s Business Continuity Plan. As a result of the continued global economic slowdown due to COVID-19 and the associated decline in global crude oil prices, the Company eliminated 26 positions on June 1, 2020. During the period of March 30, 2020 to June 1, 2020, the Company had limited production capability of new microturbine products, but had pre-built approximately 5.9 MW of microturbine finished goods during March 2020 for shipment during this period of suspended production. On September 28, 2020 salaries were returned to 100% and remaining furloughed employees returned to work. The Company’s vendor supply chain has also been impacted by the pandemic; however, the Company has been able to maintain sufficient supply flow to continue operations as of the date herewith.

Basis for Consolidation  The condensed 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.
