Liquidity and Cash Flow
Twelve months ended December 31, 2017 For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, the Company earned $275,065 in operating activities compared to earning $188,897 in 2016. Non-cash items during the twelve months contributed $75,812 compared to $100,726 in 2016. $150,000 was repaid on loans payable during the year and $150,000 of preferred shares were repurchased for cancellation. These all resulted in a net decrease in cash resources of $24,935 and a cash resources balance at the end of the period of $54,811. During the equivalent twelvemonth period in 2016 the Company showed a net increase in cash resources of $35,897 and a cash resources balance at the end of the year of $79,746
The Company‘s current cash and cash equivalents are expected to meet the anticipated need for ongoing expenses, working capital and capital expenditures. In the event the Company’s cash and cash equivalents are insufficient, the Company may seek additional financing as required to provide working capital, inventory and capital equipment necessary to implement its business plan.
Management believes that the strong functional and competitive capabilities of its Brake Safe®, Brake Inspector®, Termin-8r® Zafety Lug Lock®, Hub Alert® and Arrow Logger™ product lines will improve the Company’s long-term profitability.
The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets as well as seeking out new products to compliment our other offerings.
The Company’s Brake Safe® product is well established in the Canadian market and inroads are now being made into the lucrative American market. With the implementation of its new, aggressive, safety enforcement and monitoring program, CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is bringing the focus onto unsafe Carriers and unsafe Drivers in the US transportation industry. A significant increase in roadside enforcement, citations and fines for all driver and vehicle violations will impact positively on the sales growth of Brake Safe® products. A program has been developed to educate companies of these enforcement changes and the resulting increased intervention by regulatory agencies in order to capitalize on sales opportunities for Brake Safe®.
The Company’s Termin-8R® product continues to receive strong industry acceptance with a corresponding growth in sales to the transportation segment. The second private label arrangement, introduced in 2010 and made for a major supplier to the commercial transport industry, is proving to be a strong performer with 2017 private label sales, by dollar amount, now being 80% of total Termin-8R® product sales and 27% more than that of the previous year. The company believes that developing new private label arrangements will be a key to the ongoing growth in the sales of this product.
The Company will continue to form strategic distribution alliances to accelerate its sales outside the Canadian marketplace.
The Company may seek sufficient additional funds to provide working capital, inventory and capital equipment as needs arise, but at the moment, cash flow from operations is sufficient to support current needs.
