KOPIN CORPORATION
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The condensed consolidated financial statements of Kopin Corporation (the Company) as of
July 1, 2017
and for the
three and six
month periods ended
July 1, 2017
and
June 25, 2016
are unaudited and include all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the results of operations for the periods then ended. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2016
. The results of the Company's operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of the Company's operations for any other interim period or for a full fiscal year.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
Revenue from Contracts with Customers
In
May 2014
, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No.
2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)
. This new standard outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. In addition, ASU 2014-09 provides guidance on accounting for certain revenue-related costs including, but not limited to, when to capitalize costs associated with obtaining and fulfilling a contract. The underlying principle is to recognize revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. The new standard also requires entities to enhance disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.
To date, the Company has begun an initial assessment of the Company's revenue streams and has hired an external consulting firm to assist the Company with assessing the impact of applying the five-step model to new and existing contracts to evaluate the quantitative and qualitative impacts the new standard will have on the Company's business and reported revenues. We expect to complete our assessment of the effects of adopting ASU 2014-09 during 2017, and we will continue our evaluation of ASU 2014-09, including how it may impact new arrangements we enter into as well as new or emerging interpretations of the standard, through the date of adoption. The Company is required to apply the guidance in ASU 2014-09 as of
January 1, 2018
.
Leases
In
February 2016
, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 (Topic 842)
Leases
. Topic 842 supersedes the lease recognition requirements in Accounting Standards Codification Topic 840, "Leases". Under Topic 842, lessees are required to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases and provide enhanced disclosures. Leases will continue to be classified as either finance or operating. Topic 842 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years beginning after
December 15, 2018
. Entities are required to use a modified retrospective approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest comparative period in the financial statements, and there are certain optional practical expedients that an entity may elect to apply. Full retrospective application is prohibited and early adoption by public entities is permitted. We expect to complete our assessment in 2018 and is required to adopt ASU 2016-02 as of January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective method. We expect the potential impact of adopting ASU 2016-02 to be material to our lease liabilities and assets on our consolidated balance sheets.

Business Combinations

In
January 2017
, the FASB issued ASU
2017-01
,
Business Combinations (Topic 805).
The new guidance clarifies the definition of a business that an entity uses to determine whether a transaction should be accounted for as an asset acquisition (or disposal) or a business combination. The guidance is expected to cause fewer acquired sets of assets (and liabilities) to be identified as businesses. The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after
December 15, 2017
. Early adoption is permitted for transactions that meet certain requirements. The Company is evaluating the impact this standard will have on its financial statements.


8



Intangibles- Goodwill and Other

In
January 2017
, the FASB issued
ASU 2017-04, Intangibles- Goodwill and Other (Topic 350).
The new guidance simplifies the accounting for goodwill impairments by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. The guidance requires, among other things, recognition of an impairment loss when the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value. The loss recognized is limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after
December 15, 2019
. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after
January 1, 2017
. The Company is evaluating the impact this standard will have on its financial statements.
2.
CASH AND EQUIVALENTS AND MARKETABLE SECURITIES
The Company considers all highly liquid, short-term debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
Marketable debt securities consist primarily of commercial paper, medium-term corporate notes, and U.S. government and agency backed securities. The Company classifies these marketable debt securities as available-for-sale at fair value in “Marketable debt securities, at fair value”. The Company's investment in GCS Holdings is included in "Other Assets" as available-for-sale and at fair value. The Company records the amortization of premium and accretion of discounts on marketable debt securities in the results of operations.
The Company uses the specific identification method as a basis for determining cost and calculating realized gains and losses with respect to marketable debt securities. The gross gains and losses realized related to sales and maturities of marketable debt securities were not material during the
three and six
months ended
July 1, 2017
and the year ended
December 31, 2016
.
Investments in available-for-sale marketable debt securities are as follows at
July 1, 2017

The Company conducts a review of its marketable debt securities on a quarterly basis for the presence of other-than-temporary impairment (OTTI). The Company assesses whether OTTI is present when the fair value of a debt security is less than its amortized cost basis at the balance sheet date. Under these circumstances OTTI is considered to have occurred (1) if the Company intends to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis; (2) if it is “more likely than not” the Company will be required to sell the security before recovery of its amortized cost basis; or (3) the present value of expected cash flows is not sufficient to recover the entire amortized cost basis.
The Company further estimates the amount of OTTI resulting from a decline in the creditworthiness of the issuer (credit-related OTTI) and the amount of non credit-related OTTI. Non credit-related OTTI can be caused by such factors as market illiquidity. Credit-related OTTI is recognized in earnings while non credit-related OTTI on securities not expected to be sold is recognized in other comprehensive income (loss). The Company did not record an OTTI for the
three and six
months ended
July 1, 2017
and
June 25, 2016
.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Financial instruments are categorized as Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 based upon the method by which their fair value is computed. An investment is categorized as Level 1 when its fair value is based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date. An investment is categorized as Level 2 if its fair market value is based on quoted market prices for similar assets in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets that are not active, based on observable inputs such as interest rates, yield curves, or derived from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means. An investment is categorized as Level 3 if its fair value is based on assumptions developed by the Company about what a market participant would use in pricing the assets.
The following table details the fair value measurements of the Company’s financial assets:

The corporate debt consists of floating rate notes with a maturity that is over multiple years but has interest rates which are reset every three months based on the then-current three month London Interbank Offering Rate (three month Libor). The Company validates the fair market values of the financial instruments above by using discounted cash flow models, obtaining independent pricing of the securities or through the use of a model which incorporates the three month Libor, the credit default swap rate of the issuer and the bid and ask price spread of the same or similar investments which are traded on several markets. The Company has a warrant to acquire up to
15%
of the next round of equity offered by a customer as part of the licensing of technology to the customer. The fair market value of the warrant was determined based upon expectations from the customer’s management and then applying probabilities of occurrence and discounting back the values using expected returns required for similar instruments.
The carrying amounts of cash and equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value because of their short-term nature. If accrued liabilities were carried at fair value, these would be classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

5. 
NET LOSS PER SHARE
Basic net loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period less any non-vested restricted shares. Diluted earnings per common share, if applicable, is calculated using weighted average shares outstanding and contingently issuable shares, less weighted average shares reacquired during the period. The net outstanding shares are adjusted for the dilutive effect of shares issuable upon the assumed conversion of the Company’s common stock equivalents, which consist of outstanding stock options and non-vested restricted stock units.
The following were not included in weighted average common shares outstanding-diluted because they are anti-dilutive or performance or market conditions had not been met at the end of the period:

STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY AND STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
On April 20, 2017, the Company sold
7,589,000
shares of unregistered common stock to Goertek Inc. for
$24,664,250
 (
$3.25
 per share). This represents approximately
10.1%
of Kopin’s total outstanding shares of common stock as of the date of purchase. In addition, Kopin and Goertek have entered into agreements to jointly develop and commercialize a range of technologies and wearable products. Goertek is a leading innovative global technology company headquartered in Weifang, China that designs and manufactures a range of consumer electronics products for brand customers including wearables, virtual and augmented reality headsets, and audio products. The transaction was accounted for under FASB ASC 505-30 "
Treasury Stock
", and the loss on the sale of the treasury stock of approximately
$0.8 million
was charged to retained earnings. See "Note 13. Amounts Due To/Due From Affiliates" for additional discussion around agreements with Goertek.
The fair value of non-vested restricted common stock awards is generally the market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The non-vested restricted common stock awards require the employee to fulfill certain obligations, including remaining employed by the Company for
one
,
two
or
four
years (the vesting period) and in certain cases also require meeting either performance criteria or the Company’s stock achieving a certain price. For non-vested restricted common stock awards which solely require the recipient to remain employed with the Company, the stock compensation expense is amortized over the anticipated service period. For non-vested restricted common stock awards which require the achievement of performance criteria, the Company reviews the probability of achieving the performance goals on a periodic basis. If the Company determines that it is probable that the performance criteria will be achieved, the amount of compensation cost derived for the performance goal is amortized over the anticipated service period. If the performance criteria are not met, no compensation cost is recognized and any previously recognized compensation cost is reversed. Some of the restricted stock awards vest upon our stock price achieving certain levels. These awards are referred to as Liability Awards and are mark to market. Accordingly in some periods there is expense and in other periods the expense may reverse. The Company recognizes compensation costs on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for time-vested awards.

totaled
$4.7 million
and is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately
two
years.
The selling, general and administrative expense includes Liability Awards and the increase in expense for the six month period ended
July 1, 2017
as compared to
June 25, 2016
is partially the result of a higher stock price of the Company at
July 1, 2017
as compared to

. Included in Other accrued liabilities is
$1.4 million
in deferred compensation from equity awards which are classified as Liability Awards.

8. 
ACCRUED WARRANTY
The Company typically warrants its products against defect for
12 months
, however, for certain products a customer may purchase an extended warranty. Revenues from the sale of extended warranties are recognized over the additional warranty period purchased. A provision for estimated future costs and estimated returns for credit relating to such warranty is recorded in the period when product is shipped and revenue recognized, and is updated as additional information becomes available. The Company’s estimate of future costs to satisfy warranty obligations is based primarily on historical warranty expense experienced and a provision for potential future product failures. Changes in the accrued warranty for the
six months ended
July 1, 2017

INCOME TAXES
The Company’s tax benefit of approximately
$1.1 million
for the six months ended
July 1, 2017
represents a net benefit of
$62,000
for foreign income taxes including loss carryback to 2016, uncertain tax positions and a benefit for the net reduction in estimated foreign withholding. In addition, as a result of the acquisition of a company, we recognized
$1.0 million
of net deferred tax liabilities which provides evidence of recoverability of our net deferred tax assets that previously carried a full valuation allowance. We reduced the valuation allowance on our net deferred tax assets in the amount of
$1.0 million
and such reduction was recognized as a benefit for income taxes for the six months ended
July 1, 2017
. The Company’s tax provision of approximately
$2.0 million
for the three months ended
June 25, 2016
, represents
$0.7 million
of income taxes on the gain of the sale of Kowon's plant and land and
$1.3 million
of net movement in estimated foreign withholding on anticipated future remitted earnings of an international subsidiary and state taxes. The Company’s tax provision of approximately
$2.1 million
for the six months ended
June 25, 2016
, represents
$0.7 million
of income taxes on the gain of the sale of Kowon's plant and land and
$1.4 million
of net movement in estimated foreign withholding on anticipated future remitted earnings of an international subsidiary and state taxes. As of
July 1, 2017
, the Company has available for tax purposes U.S. federal NOLs of approximately
$141 million
expiring through
2036
. The Company has recognized a full valuation allowance on its domestic and certain foreign net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of realization of such assets.
Ownership changes, as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, may substantially limit the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that can be utilized annually to offset future taxable income. The ownership change in
2017
did not result in an annual net operating loss limitation as the acquired entity was an S Corporation and did not have loss carryforwards. Subsequent ownership changes could affect the limitation in future years. Such annual limitations could result in the expiration of net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards before utilization.
The tax years
2001
through
2016
remain open to examination by major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject to United States federal tax for the consolidated group. These periods have carryforward attributes generated in years past that may still be adjusted upon examination by the Internal Revenue Service or state tax authorities if they have or will be used in a future period. State statutes are generally shorter with shorter carryforward periods. The Company is currently not under examination by the Internal Revenue Service and is currently under examination by Massachusetts for the
2013
tax year. The Company recognizes both accrued interest and penalties related to its uncertain tax positions related to intercompany loan interest and potential transfer pricing exposure related to its Korean subsidiary.
The Company has concluded that it does not maintain its permanent reinvestment assertion with regard to the unremitted earnings of its Korean subsidiaries. As such, it accrues U.S. tax for the possible future repatriation of these unremitted foreign earnings. If the Company were to repatriate these earnings, it expects to have foreign withholding at a rate of
16.5%
and does not expect any taxes to be paid in the U.S when repatriated as it currently is expected to be a return of capital.
10.
BUSINESS COMBINATION AND GOODWILL
In
March 2017
, the Company purchased
100%
of a company for
$3.7 million
. The company produces virtual reality systems for professional 3D applications. Additional payments of up to
$2.0 million
may be required if certain future operating performance milestones are met and the selling shareholders remain employed through
March 2020
. As there is a requirement to remain employed to earn the contingent payments, these contingent payments will be treated as compensation expense. Commencing on the date of acquisition, the Company consolidated the financial results of the acquired company. The identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date have been recognized at fair value.

Goodwill represents the recording of deferred tax liabilities and the excess of the purchase price over the fair values of the net tangible assets acquired. The values assigned to the acquired assets and liabilities are based on preliminary estimates of fair value available as of the date of this filing and will be adjusted upon completion of final valuations of certain assets and liabilities. Any changes in these fair values could potentially result in an adjustment to the goodwill recorded for this transaction.
The identified intangible assets will be amortized on a straight-line basis over the following lives, in years:

The Company recognized
$0.6 million
in amortization for the
six month period
ended
July 1, 2017
related to its intangible assets. In conjunction with the acquisition the Company recorded deferred tax liabilities of approximately
$1.0 million
associated with the future non-deductible amortization of the intangible assets. These deferred tax liabilities can be used to offset the Company’s net deferred tax assets in future years. The Company reduced the valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets in the amount of
$1.0 million
and such reduction was recognized as a benefit for income taxes for the
six month period
ended
July 1, 2017
. Acquisition expenses were approximately
$0.2 million
and are recorded in selling, general and administration expenses.

IMMATERIAL RESTATEMENT
During the third quarter of 2016, the Company discovered embezzlement activities at its Korean subsidiary. Based upon the results of forensic investigation procedures, the Company identified that the embezzlement activities occurred from fiscal year 2011 through fiscal year 2016. The embezzlement resulted in a total theft loss of
$1,589,000
over that period and as a result of the embezzlement we have made the following correcting adjustments to the amounts presented in our previously issued quarterly financial information.
    
In the
three and six
month periods ended

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Forward Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (including the information incorporated by reference) contains ‘‘forward-looking statements’’ within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and that involve risks and uncertainties. These statements and other risks described below as well as those discussed elsewhere in this Quarterly Report Form 10-Q, documents incorporated by reference and other documents and reports that we file periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) include, without limitation, statements relating to our belief that we will incur significant development and marketing costs in 2017 to commercialize our Wearable technologies; our expectation that the cash and marketable debt securities held by Kowon will eventually be remitted back to the U.S.; our expectation that we will offer our proprietary noise cancellation chip which we refer to as “Whisper Chip™” in 2017; our expectation that any market risk associated with our international operations is unlikely to have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operation; our belief that a strengthening of the U.S. dollar could increase the price of our products in foreign markets; our expectation that we will expend between $2.0 million and $3.0 million on capital expenditures over the next twelve months; our belief that our available cash resources will support our operations and capital needs for at least the next twelve months; our expectation that we will have a state tax provision in 2017; and our belief that the effect, if any, of

16



reasonably possible near-term changes in interest rates on our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows should not be material. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our Form 10-K and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Our Form 10-K and other documents we have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission also contain these additional forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about the industries in which we operate, management's beliefs, and assumptions made by management. In addition, other written or oral statements, which constitute forward-looking statements, may be made by or on behalf of us. Words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “could”, “seeks”, “estimates”, and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences in outcomes and results include, but are not limited to, those discussed below in Item 1A and those set forth in our other periodic filings filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required by law, we do not intend to update any forward-looking statements even if new information becomes available or other events occur in the future.
Critical Accounting Policies
Management's discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. We regularly evaluate our estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements, including those related to revenue recognition under the percentage of completion method, bad debts, inventories, warranty reserves, investment valuations, valuation of stock compensation awards and recoverability of deferred tax assets. When we make acquisitions we use estimates in determining the allocation of the purchase price. These estimates included the forecasted operating results and cash flow projections of the acquired company, the appropriate time period to analyze the forecasted operating results and cash flow projections, additional investments, if any, in order to complete development of products and the cost to bring them to market, the weighted average cost of capital for the Company and discount rates. 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 carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not apparent from other sources. Actual results will most likely differ from these estimates. Further detail regarding our critical accounting policies can be found in “Item 7. Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2016

Business Matters
We were incorporated in Delaware in 1984 and are a leading inventor, developer, manufacturer and seller of Wearable technologies which include components and systems.
Kopin Wearable technology includes component technologies which can be integrated to create products, and proprietary headset systems which use voice as the primary user interface and, through the use of wireless technologies, can contact other user devices in close proximity or information from the cloud.
Components
The components we offer for sale primarily consist of our displays, backlights, ASICs and optical lenses. In 2017, we also anticipate offering our proprietary noise cancellation chip which we refer to as “Whisper Chip™”.
Our principal display products are miniature high density color or monochrome Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (AMLCDs) with resolutions that range from approximately 320 x 240 resolution to 2048 x 2048 resolution, sold in either a transmissive or reflective format. We sell our displays individually or in combination with our other components assembled in a unit. For example, we sell a module unit which includes a single display, backlight and optics in a plastic housing, a binocular display module unit which includes two displays, backlights and optics in a plastic housing or a Higher-Level Assembly (HLA) which contains a display, light emitting diode based illumination, optics, and electronics in a sealed housing, primarily for military applications.
Our transmissive display products, which we refer to as CyberDisplay™ products, utilize high quality, single crystal silicon-the same high quality silicon used in conventional integrated circuits. This single crystal silicon is not grown on glass; rather, it is first formed on a silicon wafer and patterned into an integrated circuit (including the active matrix, driver circuitry and other logic circuits) in an integrated circuit foundry. The silicon wafer is then sent to our facilities and the integrated circuit is lifted off as a thin film and transferred to glass using our proprietary Wafer™ Engineering technology, so that the transferred layer is a fully functional active matrix integrated circuit which now resides on a transparent substrate.
Our reflective LCOS display products are miniature high density dual mode color sequential/monochrome reflective micro displays with resolutions which range from approximately 1280 x 720 pixels (720P) resolution to 2048 x 1536 pixels

17



(QXGA) resolution. These displays are manufactured at our facility in Scotland, U.K. Our reflective displays are based on a proprietary, very high-speed, ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCOS) platform. Our digital software and logic-based drive electronics combined with the very fast switching binary liquid crystal enables our micro display to process images purely digitally and create red, green and blue gray scale in the time domain. This architecture has major advantages in visual performance over other liquid crystal, organic light-emitting diode and MEMS based technologies: precisely controlled full color or monochrome gray scale is achieved on a matrix of undivided high fill factor pixels, motion artifacts are reduced to an insignificant level and there are no sub-pixels, no moving mirrors and no analog conversions to detract from the quality of the image.
We offer a variety of optical lenses, some of which we have developed internally and others we license the rights to sell. We also offer a variety of backlights, some of which we have developed and are “off-the-shelf” components. Our lenses come in a variety of sizes with the smallest being our Pupil lens, followed by our Pearl lens and then our largest being our Prism lens. The different sizes of lenses give us and our customers design flexibility when creating headset systems. There is a trade-off between the lens size and the size of the perceived image to the viewer. For example, a Pearl lens will provide the viewer with an image approximately equivalent to what the viewer would see looking at a smart phone, whereas a Prism lens provides the viewer with an image approximately equivalent to what the viewer would see looking at a tablet. A Pearl lens is smaller than a Prism lens, however, it may enable a more fashionable design. Therefore a customer designing a consumer-oriented product may choose a Pearl lens but a customer designing an enterprise-oriented product might choose a Prism lens. We use third parties to manufacture these lenses.
The Whisper Chip is designed to enhance the performance of existing audio systems and speech recognition engines by allowing the speaker’s voice to be clearly “heard” by the listener, whether the “listener” is a person or a machine. The Whisper chip incorporates our Voice Extraction™ Filter (VEF). VEF is a patented approach to singulating the voice signal without distorting it. The Whisper Chip is an all-digital solution that runs at 16MHz, consumes less than 12mW of power and replaces the CODEC so no ADC or DAC is needed. The Whisper Chip is 4 x 4 mm in size and accepts up to four (4) digital microphone inputs. We use third parties to manufacture the Whisper Chip.
Headset Systems
Our headset systems include:
Consumer-oriented headsets which resemble typical eyeglasses but include voice and audio capabilities allowing the user to communicate with other users and a Pupil display module;
Augmented reality health and fitness sunglasses, called Solos™, that have voice and audio capabilities, a Pupil display module which overlays situational information on the glasses, our Whisper Chip;
Industrial headset reference design, which is essentially a complete head-worn computer that includes an optical pod with one of our display products, a microprocessor, battery, camera, memory and various commercially available software packages that we license;
Professional virtual reality systems that allow customers to visualize and interact with simulated 3D environments.
Our headsets receive or transmit data from or to the internet by interfacing with a smartphone or similar device via WiFi or Bluetooth. They can also receive information from devices in close proximity using ANT+. The display module or optical pod allows users to view the information such as WEB data, emails, text messages, maps or biometric data (heart rate), situational data (speed, distance traveled, Watts produced) at a “normal” viewing size because of our specialized optics. Our industrial headset provides the capability of viewing technical diagrams, by enabling the user to zoom in to see finer details or zoom out to see a larger perspective. Our industrial headset is equipped with a camera to enable a picture to be taken, video to be streamed or face-to-face communication to occur. The camera enables users to send pictures or stream live video to a remote subject matter expert so that both the user and expert can analyze an issue at the same time and collaboratively identify and implement a solution. Our headset reference designs utilize operating system software we developed. Our professional virtual reality systems allow our customers to develop high-fidelity training and simulation applications.
We have three sources of revenues: product revenues, which are our primary source of revenues, research and development (R&D) revenues primarily from development contracts with agencies or prime contractors of the U.S. government and commercial enterprises and license revenues from our reference designs. To date our license revenues have been de minimis. For the
three and six
months ended
July 1, 2017
, R&D revenues were
$0.9 million
and
$1.4 million
, or
16.0%
and
13.5%
of total revenues, respectively. This contrasted with
$0.3 million

Wearable Applications primarily represents sales of our components for products that are worn on the body for other than Military Applications. The decrease in Wearable Applications revenues in 2017 as compared to 2016 is primarily because of a decrease in sales to customers who use our products for drone headset applications and a health and fitness application. Sales of our products to customers that use our products for Wearable Applications is a critical part of our strategy to increase revenues and return to profitability and positive cash flow. Our success in selling our products for Wearable Applications will depend on the demand for our customers’ new products, which we are unable to predict. Sales of our products for Military Applications decreased in 2017 as compared to 2016 because of a decrease in demand from several small programs. We are in qualification for the U.S. military’s Family of Weapon Sights (FWS) program. The FWS program has several sub-programs and we are currently proposing to be a supplier for the FWS-I and FWS-C programs. As part of the qualification process we are receiving low volume orders for the FWS-I program. The revenues for the FWS programs are recorded in Research & Development (R&D) and are the reason for the increase in R&D revenues in 2017 as compared to 2016.
Industrial Applications represents customers who purchase our display products for use in headsets used for applications in public safety and equipment such as 3D metrology and training and simulation. Sales of our products for use in 3D metrology applications in 2017 have increased as compared to 2016. In addition, in the first quarter of 2017 we acquired a company that produces virtual reality systems for professional 3D applications. Sales of the acquired company were approximately
$1.7 million
in the
six months ended
July 1, 2017
and are included in the Industrial category.
International sales represented 51% and 72% of product revenues for the
six months ended
July 1, 2017
and
June 25, 2016
, respectively. Our international sales are primarily denominated in U.S. currency. Consequently, a strengthening of the U.S. dollar could increase the price in local currencies of our products in foreign markets and make our products relatively more expensive than competitors' products that are denominated in local currencies, leading to a reduction in sales or profitability in those foreign markets. In addition, our Korean subsidiary, Kowon, holds U.S. dollars. As a result, our financial position and results of operations are subject to exchange rate fluctuation in transactional and functional currency. We have not taken any protective measures against exchange rate fluctuations, such as purchasing hedging instruments with respect to such fluctuations, because of the historically stable exchange rate between the Japanese yen, Great Britain pound, Korean won and the U.S. dollar. Foreign currency translation impact on the Company's results, if material, is described in further detail under "Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" section below.

, cost of product revenues, which is comprised of materials, labor and manufacturing overhead related to the production of our products, decreased as a percentage of revenues in 2017 as compared to 2016 because of an increase in sales of our industrial products which have higher gross margins than the other products sold during the 2017 and 2016 time periods.
Research and Development.
 Research and development (R&D) expenses are incurred in support of internal development programs or programs funded by agencies or prime contractors of the U.S. government and commercial partners. R&D revenues associated with funded programs are presented separately in revenue in the statement of operations. Research and development costs include staffing, purchases of materials and laboratory supplies, circuit design costs, fabrication and packaging of display products, and overhead. For the

Other income (expense), net, is primarily composed of interest income, foreign currency transaction and remeasurement gains and losses incurred by our Korean and UK-based subsidiaries and other non-operating income items. During the three and six months ended
July 1, 2017
, we recorded $0.6 million of foreign currency gains and $0.6 million of foreign currency losses, respectively. During the
three and six
months ended
June 25, 2016
, we recorded $0.1 million of foreign currency gains and $0.5 million of foreign currency losses, respectively. During the six months ended
July 1, 2017
we recorded a non-cash $0.3 million gain on the mark to market of a warrant we received as part of a license of our technology.
In 2016, we discovered an embezzlement at our Korean subsidiary of approximately $1.6 million which occurred during the period 2011 through 2016. In the
three and six
month periods ended
June 25, 2016
, the Company has recorded in Other income (expense), net, embezzlement expense of approximately
$0.1 million
and
$0.2 million
, respectively, representing the total amount of theft loss that occurred. During the six months ended July 1, 2017 we recognized approximately a recovery of $330,000 received from the family of the embezzler as restitution.
Tax Provision.
 For the six months ended
July 1, 2017
, we recorded a tax benefit of
$1.1 million
of which
$62,000
is a decrease in estimated foreign withholding on anticipated future remitted earnings of a foreign subsidiary. In addition, as a result of the acquisition of a company, we recognized
$1.0 million
of net deferred tax liabilities which provides evidence of recoverability of our net deferred tax assets that previously carried a full valuation allowance. We reduced the valuation allowance on our net deferred tax assets in the amount of
$1.0 million
and such reduction was recognized as a benefit for income taxes for the six months ended
July 1, 2017
. For the
three and six
months ended
June 25, 2016
, we recorded a tax provision of
$2.0 million
and
$2.1 million
, respectively, for estimated foreign income taxes, an increase in estimated foreign withholding on anticipated future remitted earnings of a foreign subsidiary and estimated state income tax.
Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest.
As of
July 1, 2017
, we owned approximately 93% of the equity of Kowon and 80% of the equity of eMDT. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest on our consolidated statement of operations represents the portion of the results of operations of our majority owned subsidiaries which is allocated to the shareholders of the equity interests not owned by us. The change in net income attributable to noncontrolling interest is the result of the change in the results of operations of Kowon and eMDT for the
three and six
months ended
July 1, 2017
and
June 25, 2016
.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
At
July 1, 2017
, we had cash and equivalents and marketable securities of
$84.9 million
and working capital of
$77.8 million
compared to
$77.2 million
and
$70.0 million
, respectively, as of
December 31, 2016
. The change in cash and equivalents and marketable securities was primarily due to net outflow of cash used in operating activities of $12.7 million and acquisition of a company for $3.7 million, offset by cash provided by the sale of 7.6 million shares of treasury stock for $24.7 million.

We have no plans to repatriate the cash and marketable debt securities held in our foreign subsidiaries FDD and Kopin Software Ltd. and, as such, we have not recorded any deferred tax liability with respect to such cash. The manufacturing operations at our Korean facility, Kowon, have ceased. Kowon has approximately $18.1 million of cash and marketable debt securities which we anticipate will eventually be remitted to the U.S. and, accordingly, we have recorded deferred tax liabilities associated with its unremitted earnings.
In March 2017, we acquired 100% of the outstanding stock of a company for $3.7 million plus contingent consideration. An additional $2.0 million can be earned if certain cash flow milestones are met and certain employees remain with the company through March 2020.
We lease facilities located in Westborough, Massachusetts, Reston, Virginia, San Jose, California and Scotts Valley, California under non-cancelable operating leases. The Westborough, Reston, San Jose and Scotts Valley leases expire in 2023, 2018, 2021 and 2018, respectively.
We lease a facility in Dalgety Bay, Scotland which expires in 2019, a facility in Nottingham, United Kingdom, which expires in 2017, an office in Hong Kong which expires in 2018, an office in Japan which expires in 2017 and office in Shenzhen, China which expires in 2018.
We expect to expend between $2.0 million and $3.0 million on capital expenditures over the next twelve months. We own approximately 93% of Kowon, our Korean subsidiary. The owners of the remaining 7% have expressed a desire to sell their shares to the Company. We are evaluating whether to purchase the shares. We have entered into two joint venture agreements which are subject to certain closing conditions including government approvals. If the transactions close we will contribute certain intellectual property and up to
$3.0 million
.
As of
July 1, 2017
, we had U.S. federal and state tax loss carry-forwards, which may be used to offset U.S. future federal and state taxable income. We also had tax loss carry-forwards generated in our foreign subsidiaries which may be used to offset future foreign taxable income. We may be subject to alternative minimum taxes, foreign taxes and state income taxes depending on our taxable income and sources of taxable income.
Historically, we have financed our operations primarily through public and private placements of our equity securities and cash generated from operations. We believe our available cash resources will support our operations and capital needs for at least the next twelve months.

Item 3.
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
We invest our excess cash in high-quality U.S. government, government-backed (i.e.: Fannie Mae, FDIC guaranteed bonds and certificates of deposit) and corporate debt instruments, which bear lower levels of relative risk. We believe that the

21



effect, if any, of reasonably possible near-term changes in interest rates on our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows should not be material to our cash flows or income. It is possible that interest rate movements would increase our unrealized gain or loss on interest rate securities. We are exposed to changes in foreign currency exchange rates primarily through our translation of our foreign subsidiaries' financial position, results of operations, and transaction gains and losses as a result of non U.S. dollar denominated cash flows related to business activities in Asia and Europe, and remeasurement of U.S. dollars to the functional currency of our U.K. and Kowon subsidiaries. We are also exposed to the effects of exchange rates in the purchase of certain raw materials which are in U.S. dollars but the price on future purchases is subject to change based on the relationship of the Japanese yen to the U.S. dollar. We do not currently hedge our foreign currency exchange rate risk. We estimate that any market risk associated with our international operations is unlikely to have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operation. Our portfolio of marketable debt securities is subject to interest rate risk although our intent is to hold securities until maturity. The credit rating of our investments may be affected by the underlying financial health of the guarantors of our investments. We use silicon wafers but do not enter into forward or futures hedging contracts.
Item 4.
Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Based on an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act) were not effective. This conclusion was based on the existence of the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting previously disclosed and discussed below and as more fully discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

As disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Item 9A, for the year ended December 31, 2016, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective at December 31, 2016. We are actively engaged in the implementation of a remediation plan, described below, to ensure that controls contributing to the material weaknesses are designed appropriately and will operate effectively.

Management's Plan to Remediate the Material Weaknesses

Our Korean subsidiary had stopped production in 2013 and was maintained by a small staff, pending the sale of the facilities, which occurred in June of 2016. The employee responsible for the embezzlement was able, in large part, to perpetrate the fraud by obtaining the Company’s seal and using it to authenticate fraudulent documents. The Company's seal was removed from local management’s control by December 31, 2016 and now resides with an independent party. Local management must now make requests of our corporate accounting department to execute transactions. Our corporate accounting department coordinates with the independent party to execute any transactions. Our Korean subsidiaries' accounting function has been outsourced to an independent third party who reports directly to the corporate accounting department. In addition, enhanced reviews of bank statements, account reconciliations and supporting analysis are being performed by our corporate accounting department.

We expect that our remediation efforts will continue, although the material weaknesses will not be considered remediated until our controls are operational for a period of time.

Notwithstanding the identified material weakness and management’s assessment that internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of
July 1, 2017
, management believes that the consolidated financial statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q fairly present, in all material respects, our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in the our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 that was conducted during the quarter ended
July 1, 2017
 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting, except for our remediation efforts described above.

Part II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1.
Legal Proceedings
We may engage in legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Claims, suits, investigations and proceedings are inherently uncertain and it is not possible to predict the ultimate outcome of such matters and our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows could be affected in any particular period.
Item 1A.
Risk Factors
In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended
December 31, 2016
. The risks discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K could materially affect our business, financial condition and future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition or operating results.
Item 2.
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
Sale of Unregistered Securities
In December 2016, we entered into an agreement with a Chinese company, Goertek Inc. (“Goertek”) pursuant to which Goertek would acquire
7,589,000
shares of unregistered stock of the Company for approximately
$24.7 million
. The transaction was completed on April 20, 2017. Other than the sale to Goertek we have not sold any securities in the past three years which were not registered under the Securities Act.
Use of Proceeds
The information required by this item regarding use of proceeds by the Company is reported herein in Part I, Item 2 under “Liquidity and Capital Resources”.
