Note 2 - Liquidity and Going Concern


The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. In accordance with ASU No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going concern (Subtopic 205-40), we have evaluated whether there are conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the Consolidated Financial Statements are issued.


We have historically funded our operations with cash flow from operations, equity capital raises, and note payable agreements from shareholders and private investors, in addition to institutional loans. Our principal uses of cash have been debt service, capital expenditures and working capital, and funding operations. The Company incurred net losses of approximately $19.0 million during the twelve months ending December 31, 2023. Cash used in operating activities was approximately $7.4 million for the same period. As of December 31, 2023, we have working capital deficit of $7.4 million which compares to the $5.8 million working capital we maintained as of December 31, 2022.


Late in the third quarter of 2022, we secured a term loan in the maximum amount of $6.0 million, with $4.0 million being advanced upon execution and up to two additional $1.0 million advances available to us subject to performance hurdles. Additionally, we secured an asset based line of credit with a $8.0 million credit limit subject to accounts receivable and inventory balances. The term loan and asset based line of credit were secured in order to augment our liquidity, as needed, through the execution of management's plan. The Company had drawn $4.0 million of the term

loan and $3.7 million (net of repayments) of the asset based line of credit as of December 31, 2023. See Note 9 for a description of the asset based line of credit and Note 10 for a description of the term loan.


We are currently evaluating several different strategies to enhance our liquidity position. These strategies may include, but are not limited to, pursuing additional actions under our business transformation plan, and seeking additional financing from both the public and private markets through the issuance of equity or debt securities. The outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with any certainty at this time. We need additional funding to execute our business plan and continue operations. If capital is not available to us when, and in the amounts needed, we could be required to liquidate our inventory and assets, cease or curtail operations, which could materially harm our business, financial condition and results of operations, or seek protection under applicable bankruptcy laws or similar state proceedings. There can be no assurance that we will be able to raise the capital we need to continue our operations.


We have prepared cash flow forecasts which indicate that based on our expected operating losses and cash consumption due to growth in working capital, we believe that absent an infusion of sufficient capital there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern for twelve months after the date the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2023 are issued. The Company's plan includes the items noted above as well as securing external financing which may include raising debt or equity capital. These plans are not entirely within the Company's control including our ability to raise sufficient capital on favorable terms, if at all.
