ASURE SOFTWARE, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands, except per share data unless otherwise noted)
 
NOTE 1 – GENERAL AND BASIS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and accordingly, do not include all information and footnotes required under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, these interim financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of normal, recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position of Asure Software, Inc. (“Asure” or the “Company”) as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, the results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, and the cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2009.  The results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for a full fiscal year.

On November 24, 2009, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a change in the Company's fiscal year end from July 31 to December 31 of each year.  This change to the calendar year reporting cycle began January 1, 2010. As a result of the change, the Company had a five month transition period from August 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009.  The audited results for the five month period ended December 31, 2009 will be included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.

In addition, the results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 are compared with the results of the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009, which has been recast due to the change in the Company's fiscal year end from July 31 to December 31.

Effective on December 28, 2009, we implemented a reverse stock split approved by Asure’s stockholders at the December 17, 2009 Annual Meeting.  Pursuant to the reverse stock split, every ten shares of issued and outstanding common stock of Asure, $.01 par value per share were automatically converted to one issued and outstanding share of common stock without any change in the par value of such shares. Historical share data presented in these consolidated financial statements and notes thereto have been restated to reflect this reverse stock split.

As of June 30, 2010, Asure’s principal source of liquidity consisted of $705 of current cash and cash equivalents as well as future cash generated from operations.  The decline of cash and cash equivalents of $1,558 for the six months ended June 30, 2010 is due primarily to the lease amendment fee of $1,500 and return of sub-tenant security deposits of $124 recorded during the second quarter of 2010  which is further discussed in Note 10.  The Company believes that it has and/or will generate sufficient cash for its short and long term needs. The Company is continuing to reduce expenses and thus may utilize its cash balances in the short-term to reduce long-term costs.   The Company expects that it will be able to generate positive cash flows from operating activities for the remainder of  2010. 
 
Management is focused on growing its existing software operations and looking to make strategic acquisitions in the near future.  In the short-term, any acquisitions will be funded with equity, cash on the balance sheet, cash from operations, and cash or debt raised from outside sources.
 
There is no assurance that the Company will be able to grow its cash balances or limit its cash consumption and thus maintain sufficient  cash balances, and it is possible that the Company’s future business demands may lead to cash utilization at levels greater than recently experienced. Management believes that the Company has sufficient capital and liquidity to fund and cultivate the growth of its current and future operations for the next 12 months and thereafter.  However, due to uncertainties related to the timing and costs of these efforts, Asure may need to raise additional capital in the future.  Yet, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to raise additional capital if and when it is needed.

NOTE 2 – INTANGIBLE ASSETS
 
Asure accounted for its historical acquisitions in accordance with FASB ASC 805, Business Combinations (FASB ASC 805).  The Company recorded the amount exceeding the fair value of net assets acquired at the date of acquisition as goodwill. The Company recorded intangible assets apart from goodwill if the assets had contractual or other legal rights or if the assets could be separated and sold, transferred, licensed, rented or exchanged.  Asure’s goodwill and intangible assets relate to its acquisition of iSarla Inc. and the iEmployee operations.
 
In accordance with FASB ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other ( FASB ASC 350), Asure reviews and evaluates its long-lived assets, including intangible assets with finite lives, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their net book value may not be recoverable.  Based on Asure’s impairment test, no impairment was identified for the Company’s intangible assets for the year ended July 31, 2009.
 
On May 3, 2010, the Company and Ceridian Corporation (“Ceridian”), a reseller of the Company’s iEmployee products, entered into an agreement by which joint customers of the Company and Ceridian were given until July 31, 2010 to choose either to  (i) contract directly with the Company to continue using our goods and services, or (ii) continue using Ceridian’s offerings that may not include the Company’s products and services.  Depending on the number of customers that contracted with Asure and the related pricing, the cash flows associated with the Ceridian customers may vary from historical levels.  Thus the Company tested the Ceridian contract intangible asset for impairment in accordance with FASB ASC 350.  The Company compared the asset’s carrying amount against the estimated undiscounted cash flows to be generated from the customers that contracted with Asure over the estimated useful life of the intangible asset.  The undiscounted cash flows from the intangible asset exceeded the carrying value of the intangible asset and thus no impairment was required.

The gross carrying amount and accumulated amortization of the Company’s intangible assets as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 are as follows:

NOTE 3 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
 
Effective August 1, 2008, Asure adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (FASB ASC 820).  FASB ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  The adoption of FASB ASC 820 did not have a material impact to the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
FASB ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which are based on the reliability of the inputs used in measuring fair values. These tiers include:
 
  Level 1:    
prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
 
  Level 2:    
Quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities; and model-driven valuations whose significant inputs are observable; and
 
Level 3:    
Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
 
The following table presents the fair value hierarchy for the Company’s financial assets (cash equivalents and short-term investments) measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2010:

NOTE 5 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
In October 2009, the FASB updated FASB ASC 605, Revenue Recognition (FASB ASC 605) to address how to determine whether an arrangement involving multiple deliverables contains more than one unit of accounting and how the arrangement consideration should be measured and allocated to the separate units of accounting. This guidance eliminates the residual method and replaces it with the “relative selling price” method when allocating revenue in a multiple deliverable arrangement. The selling price for each deliverable shall be determined using vendor specific objective evidence of selling price, if it exists, otherwise third-party evidence of selling price shall be used. If neither exists for a deliverable, the vendor shall use its best estimate of the selling price for that deliverable. After adoption, this guidance will also require expanded qualitative and quantitative disclosures. The updated FASB ASC 605 is effective for the Company’s revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted the updated FASB ASC 605 on January 1, 2010 on a prospective basis for any new contracts entered into after the date of adoption.  The adoptions of this ASC update did not have a material impact to its condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009. However, the Company cannot predict whether the impact of this update will have a material impact in future quarters due to potential changes in products and product mix.  Prior to the adoption of the updated FASB ASC 605, the Company accounted for its software subscriptions and related setup, implementation and professional services as a single accounting unit.  Thus all revenues associated with such an arrangement were recognized pro-rata over the life of the software subscription service contract.  Subsequent to the adoption of the updated FASB ASC 605, the Company accounts for each of these elements as separate accounting units.  Thus the software subscription service revenue is recognized pro-rata over the life of the software subscription contract, while the related setup and implementation revenues are recognized upon completion.  The result of the adoption is an immaterial acceleration of setup and implementation revenues related to software subscriptions.
 
NOTE 6 – SHARE BASED COMPENSATION
 
Share based compensation for the Company’s stock option, restricted stock and stock purchase plans for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 were $13 and $12, respectively and $28 and $26 for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The Company did not issue shares of common stock related to exercises of stock options granted from its Stock Option, Restricted Stock, and Stock Purchase Plans for the three or six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
 
ASURE SOFTWARE, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Amounts in thousands, except per share data or otherwise noted)
 
On September 21, 2009, the Board adopted the Company’s 2009 Equity Plan (the “2009 Equity Plan”) and the plan was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the December 17, 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  The purpose of the 2009 Equity Plan is to enhance the long-term stockholder value of the Company by offering opportunities to directors, officers, employees and eligible consultants of the Company to acquire and maintain stock ownership in the Company in order to give these persons the opportunity to participate in the Company’s growth and success, and to encourage them to remain in the service of the Company.  A total of 200 thousand shares of the Company’s Common Stock were available for issuance under the 2009 Equity Plan and provides for the granting of (i) incentive stock options, (ii) non statutory stock options and (iii) stock purchase rights.  A total of 183 thousand options have been granted and are outstanding pursuant to the plan as of June 30, 2010.
 
NOTE 7 – CONTINGENCIES

Asure was the defendant or plaintiff in various actions that arose in the normal course of business. With the exception of the proceedings described below, none of the pending legal proceedings to which the Company is a party are material to the Company.

Litigation with Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C.

On July 16, 2007, Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C. (“Jenkens”), Asure’s former legal counsel, filed a complaint against Asure and Compressions Labs, Inc., in the District Court of Dallas County, Texas.  In its complaint, Jenkens alleged a breach of contract and sought a declaratory judgment.  Asure disputed Jenkens’ claims and also sought relief through the court system.
 
After Asure terminated Jenkens, the Company entered into a Resolution Agreement with Jenkens in December 2004.  Under the Resolution Agreement, the Company believed Jenkens was entitled to $1,400 for all fees and expenses related to certain settlements received from licensing the Company's intellectual property.  Jenkens interpreted the Resolution Agreement on broader terms and initially believed it was entitled to $2,800.  As of July 31, 2007, Asure accrued $2,100 for Jenkens’ contingency fees related to these settlements. The Company recorded the contingency fees as part of cost of sales on its Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended July 31, 2007 in order to properly match the expenses to the related licensing revenues.  The $2,100 accrual remained as part of Asure’s current liabilities through its prior fiscal year ending July 31, 2009.

On July 20, 2009, the trial with Jenkens commenced.  As the result of the jury verdict in July 2009 to award Jenkens approximately $4,600 in damages, attorney’s fees and interest, Asure entered into a settlement agreement with Jenkens, effective August 20, 2009.  Under the settlement agreement, Asure agreed to pay Jenkens $4,300 and the parties agreed to release all claims against each other.  Based on the settlement amount, the Company accrued an additional $2,200 in July 2009 for a total amount accrued of $4,300 as of July 31, 2009. Since the Company was no longer licensing its intellectual property and had no related licensing revenues in fiscal year 2009, this additional $2,200 expense was recorded as part of operating expenses on the Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended July 31, 2009.  Asure paid Jenkens $4,300 on August 25, 2009 and the Company considers this litigation to be concluded.
 
NOTE 8 – INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE

Basic Income (Loss) per share (EPS) is computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted EPS reflects the maximum dilution that would have resulted from incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options.  The number of common share equivalents, which includes stock options, is computed using the treasury stock method.

Stock options to acquire 205 thousand shares for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 and stock options to acquire 113 thousand shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 were excluded in the computations of diluted EPS because the effect of including the stock options would have been anti-dilutive.

NOTE 9 – LEASE IMPAIRMENT

During the quarter ended June 30, 2009, Wild Basin One &Two, Ltd. (“Wild Basin”), Asures’s landlord, communicated to Asure that it needed to accumulate additional reserves, in excess of the reserves currently remitted as required by Wild Basin’s loan agreement. Due to these additional reserves, Wild Basin stated that it is unable to remit any net profit interest payments to the Company as stipulated under the terms of Asure’s lease agreement. Additionally, the then current rental market in Austin, Texas continued to show depressed leasing rates. Based on these factors, management analyzed the discounted cash flows related to its Wild Basin property lease and subleases over the remainder of the lease term. Although the Company continued to actively sublease the vacated space, the rates on the new subleases were less than originally anticipated due to the current market rates. Management calculated the economic value of the lost sublease rental income and recorded an additional impairment charge of $630 to the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

NOTE 10 – LOSS ON LEASE AMENDMENT
 
On April 28, 2010 the Company entered into an Amendment to its current building lease with Wild Basin. Pursuant to the terms of the amended Lease, the Landlord agreed to reduce the square footage leased by the Company from 137 thousand square feet to 9 thousand square feet for the lease’s remaining three years.  In addition, the monthly rent of $299 was reduced to $20 beginning April 1, 2010.  In exchange for the rent and square footage reduction, the Company made a one time payment of $1,500 and agreed to forgo approximately $159 of monthly sub-tenant income it received from the excess space under the prior lease.  Additionally, the Company forfeited its rights to any potential future net profits interest in the lease.  The $1,203 loss consists of the following expenses; the $1,500 lease termination fee, the write-off of $186 of subtenant lease hold improvements and $45 in transaction costs.  These expenses were offset by the reversal of the following liabilities; $254 of leasehold advance, $235 of leasehold impairment and $39 of other net liabilities.

 
ITEM 2.     MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The following review of Asure’s financial position as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 and for the three an six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Asure’s internet website address is http://www.asuresoftware.com.  The Company’s annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K and amendments to those reports filed or furnished pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 are available through the investor relations page of the Company’s internet website free of charge as soon as reasonably practicable after they are electronically filed, or furnished to, the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Asure’s internet website and the information contained therein or connected thereto are not intended to be incorporated into this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

The Company currently offers two main product lines in its software and services business: NetSimplicity and iEmployee. Asure’s NetSimplicity product line provides simple and affordable solutions to common office administration problems.  NetSimplicity’s flagship product, Meeting Room Manager (“MRM”), automates the entire facility scheduling process: reserving rooms, requesting equipment, ordering food, sending invitations, reporting on the meeting environment and more.  Asure’s iEmployee product line helps simplify the HR process and improves employee productivity by managing and communicating human resources, employee benefits and payroll information.  iEmployee's web-based solutions include Time & Attendance, Timesheets, Human Resource Benefits, Expenses and others.

On December 17, 2009, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal to affect a 10-for-1 reverse stock split.  The reverse stock split was effective December 28, 2009 and as a result the Company’s stock began and has continued to trade above $1.00.  On January 20, 2010, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq stating that it had regained compliance with the minimum $1.00 bid price requirement.  In addition, the Company’s stockholders approved the change of the Company’s name from Forgent Networks, Inc. to Asure Software, Inc.

THREE AND SIX MONTHS JUNE 30, 2010 AND 2009
 
Revenues

Consolidated revenues represent the combined revenues of the Company and its subsidiaries, including sales of the Company’s scheduling software, human resource and time and attendance software, complementary hardware devices to enhance its software products, software maintenance and support services, installation and training services and other professional services.
 
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were $2.625 million, an increase of $0.311 million, or 13%, from the $2.314 million reported for the three months ended June 30, 2009.  This was primarily due to a $0.128 million increase in perpetual license revenue of the Company’s MRM product and a $0.124 million increase in both iEmployee and NetSimplicity SaaS revenues.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $5.085 million, an increase of $0.261 million, or 5%, from the $4,824 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2009.  This was primarily due to an increase in SaaS revenues of $0.172 and a $0.120 million increase hardware orders.  These increases were partially offset by a decrease in perpetual license revenues of $0.057 million, which is primarily due to a decrease in revenues related to Visual Asset Manager (“VAM”) license sales.  The VAM product line was sold in February 2009 to E-Innovative Services Group (“EISG”), LLC.

Asure will continue to target small and medium businesses and divisions of enterprises.  In addition to continuing to develop its workforce management solutions and release new software updates and enhancements, the Company is actively exploring other opportunities to acquire additional products or technologies to complement its current software and services.  Asure also is implementing marketing initiatives, including tailoring its solutions to provide increased value and a simplified purchasing model to targeted customers.  As the overall workforce management solutions market continues to experience significant growth related to software as a service (“SaaS”) products, Asure will continue to focus on sales of its MRM and iEmployee SaaS products.  Management believes that an economic recovery will facilitate additional revenue growth.

On May 3, 2010 the Company and Ceridian agreed to dissolve their reseller relationship effective July 31, 2010.  Joint customers of the Company and Ceridian were given the choice of: (i) contracting directly with the Company to continue using its goods and services, or (ii) using Ceridian's offerings.  The Company’s strategy was that it believed that many joint customers and users would decide to contract directly with the Company which would benefit the Company by: (a) permitting us to have a direct relationship with these end users and customers enabling us to have better control over our customer base and (b) improve our margins. As of August 9, 2010, the Company has captured 93% of the November 2009 pre-dispute monthly recurring revenue levels.  Additionally, the majority of iEmployee customers agreed to long-term (1 year or longer) contracts instead of month to month agreements.  Lastly, the Company hopes to grow revenues further by actively pursuing additional joint clients and channel partner sales and organic cross selling opportunities.
 
Gross Margin
 
Gross margins for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were $2.123 million, an increase of $0.252 million, or 13.5%, from the $1.871 million reported for the three months ended June 30, 2009.  Gross margins as a percentage of revenues were 80.9% and 80.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The increase in gross margins of $0.252 is primarily due to the increase in revenue for the period.

Gross margins for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $3.945 million, a decrease of $0.057 million, or 1.4%, from the $3.888 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2009.  Gross margins as a percentage of revenues were 77.6% and 80.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The decrease in gross margins of $0.056 is primarily due to an increase in lower margin hardware revenues.
 
 
Selling, General and Administrative
 
Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were $1.442 million, a decrease of $1.466 million or 50.4%, from the $2.908 million reported for the three months ended June 30, 2009. SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenues were 54.9% and 125.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The $1.466 million decrease was primarily due to a $0.517 million reduction in compensation related to headcount reductions, a $0.217 million reduction in legal fees, a $0.326 million in net rent savings related to the amendment to the Company’s building lease with WB One & Two, LTD, a $0.258 million charge to reserve the Company’s net profit interest and a reduction of marketing program costs of $0.114 million.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $2.883 million, a decrease of $2.783 million or 49.1%, from the $5.666 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2009. SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenues were 56.7% and 117.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The $2.783 million decrease was primarily due to a $0.742 million reduction in compensation related to headcount reductions and 10% salary reduction program effective March 1, 2009, a $0.329 million reduction in legal fees,  $0.326 million in net rent savings related to the amendment to the Company’s building lease with WB One & Two, LTD, a $0.450 million charge to reserve the Company’s net profit interest, a reduction of marketing program costs of $0.277 million and a general decrease in consulting, contractor and insurance costs of $0.412 million.

Throughout its operations, Asure continues to evaluate any unnecessary SG&A expenses and plans to further reduce expenses as appropriate.
 
Research and Development
 
Research and development (“R&D”) expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were $0.364 million, a decrease of $0.241 million, or 39.8%, from the $0.605 million reported for the three months ended June 30, 2009. Research and development expenses as a percentage of revenues were 13.9% and 26.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The $0.241 million decrease in Research and development expenses was primarily due to a $0.241 million reduction in compensation related to headcount reductions.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $0.706 million, a decrease of $0.422 million, or 37.4%, from the $1,128 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2009. Research and development expenses as a percentage of revenues were 13.9% and 23.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The $0.422 million decrease in research and development expenses was primarily due to a $0.396 million reduction in compensation related to headcount reductions and 10% salary reduction program effective March 1, 2009

Asure continues to improve and enhance its workforce management solutions – particularly its Time & Attendance software from the iEmployee product line and its Meeting Room Manager (“MRM”) software from its NetSimplicity product line.   Time & Attendance enhancements included an additional application programming interface for time collection, which expands the software’s interoperability with various time clocks in addition to Asure’s Easy Touch Time Clock.  Additionally, the Company implemented a new line of clocks that contains several forms of data collection including magnetic stripe, barcode, proximity and biometric readers. The expanded interoperability and new line of clocks expanded Time & Attendance’s capabilities to meet various customers’ requirements by increasing the customers’ choices when selecting hardware devices.  Asure also added functionality to its Time & Attendance software by developing an automated calculation of the time off accruals and a new flexible pay schedule that allows customers to specify start and end dates and times for multiple different pay periods.

Asure has continued to develop MRM and enhanced the Microsoft Outlook Plug-in, Web and Interactive LCD interfaces, allowed assigned delegates the ability to schedule meetings on behalf of others, and provided more sophisticated conflict resolution options for scheduling recurring meetings via Microsoft Outlook®. Asure’s R&D efforts related to its NetSimplicity product line culminated in August 2009 when the Company released MRM, Version 8.0.  Under this next generation of the Company’s room and resource scheduling solution, customers have the benefit of a bi-directional Outlook Plug-in.  Meetings and resources scheduled through Microsoft Outlook are synchronized to the Web client, thus allowing users to create, manage and update information from the Web client, given the appropriate privileges.  Customers can now delegate scheduling responsibilities to individuals without requiring access to Microsoft Outlook.
 
Asure’s development efforts for future releases and enhancements are driven by feedback received from its existing and potential customers and by gauging marketing trends.  Management believes it has the appropriate development team to design and further improve its workforce management solutions.
 
 
Amortization of Intangible Assets in Operating Expenses
 
Amortization expense for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 was $0.150 million and $0.149 million, respectively.  Amortization expense for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 was 0.299 million and $0.298 million, respectively. Upon acquiring the iEmployee business in October 2007, Asure recorded several intangible assets, which are being amortized over their estimated useful lives.  The amortization expenses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 relate entirely to these acquired intangible assets.

  Lease Impairment

During the quarter ended June 30, 2009, Wild Basin One &Two, Ltd. (“Wild Basin”), Asures’s landlord, communicated to Asure that it needed to accumulate additional reserves, in excess of the reserves currently remitted as required by Wild Basin’s loan agreement. Due to these additional reserves, Wild Basin stated that it is unable to remit any net profit interest payments to the Company as stipulated under the terms of Asure’s lease agreement. Additionally, the current rental market in Austin, Texas continues to show depressed leasing rates. Based on these factors, management analyzed the discounted cash flows related to its Wild Basin property lease and subleases over the remainder of the lease term. Although the Company continued to actively sublease the vacated space, the rates on the new subleases were less than originally anticipated due to the current market rates. Management calculated the economic value of the lost sublease rental income and recorded an additional impairment charge of $0.630 million to the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Loss on Lease Amendment

On April 28, 2010 the Company entered into an Amendment to its current building lease with Wild Basin. Pursuant to the terms of the amended Lease, the Landlord agreed to reduce the square footage leased by the Company from 137 thousand square feet to 9 thousand square feet for the lease’s remaining three years.  In addition, the monthly rent of $0.299 million was reduced to $0.020 million beginning April 1, 2010.  In exchange for the rent and square footage reduction, the Company made a one time payment of $1.500 million and agreed to forgo approximately $0.159 million of monthly sub-tenant income it received from the excess space under the prior lease.  Additionally, the Company forfeited its rights to any potential future net profits interest in the lease.  The $1.203 million loss consists of the following expenses; the $1.500 million lease termination fee, the write-off of $0.186 million of subtenant lease hold improvements and $0.045 million in transaction costs.  These expenses were offset by the reversal of the following liabilities; $0.254 million of leasehold advance, $0.235 million  of leasehold impairment and $0.039 million of other net liabilities.

The lease amendment will result in future cash savings of approximately $0.360 million per quarter.

Net Loss
 
Asure generated a net loss of $1.015 million, or $0.33 per share, during the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared to a net loss of $2.508 million or $0.81 per share reported for the three months ended June 30, 2009.  Net loss as a percentage of total revenues were 38.7% and 108.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
Asure generated a net loss of $1.203 million, or $0.39 per share, during the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to a net loss of $3.887 million or $1.25 per share reported for the six months ended June 30, 2009.  Net loss as a percentage of total revenues were 23.7% and 80.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

Asure will continue to implement its corporate strategy for growing its software and services business by modestly investing in areas that directly generate revenue and positive cash flows for the Company.  However, uncertainties and challenges remain, especially during this macroeconomic environment downturn, and there can be no assurance that the Company can successfully grow its revenues or achieve profitability during the remainder of fiscal year 2010.

 Working capital was $(847) million on June 30, 2010, a decrease of $5.291 million from $4.444 million on June 30, 2009.  This decrease was primarily due to the lease amendment payment of $1.500 million, the increase in Jenkens legal settlement of $2.200 million, stock repurchase of $0.219 million, payment of subtenant deposits of $0.155 million and losses from operations.  The Company believes that most of the items that created the reduction in working capital were the result of one-time events that the Company does not expect to be repeated.  In addition, the Company believes that it will begin to generate positive cash flows beginning in its third quarter of 2010 and thus begin to increase its available working capital.  Finally, although the Company’s working capital (current assets less current liabilities) is negative, $1.663 million of Asure’s current liabilities is deferred revenue (primarily prepaid SaaS and Maintenance and Service contracts) and thus does not represent a significant cash liability in the near term.  Excluding the $1.663 million in deferred revenue, the Company’s working capital would be $0.816 million and the Company believes is sufficient liquidity to maintain its operations.

Cash used in operating activities was $1.321 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 due primarily to the one time $1.203 million net loss related to the amendment to the Company’s building lease with WB One & Two, LTD.  Cash used in operating activities was $2.168 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 due primarily to $3.887 million in net loss, which was offset by $0.630 million in total non-cash asset impairment and $0.920 million decrease in accounts receivable.

Cash used by investing activities was $0.123 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 due to net purchases of property and equipment. Cash used by investing activities was $2.239 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 due to net purchases of property and equipment of $0.175 million and purchases of short term investments of $2.064.  Asure’s current operations are not capital intensive and management does not anticipate any significant capital expenditures during the remainder of calendar year 2010.

The Company leases office space and equipment under non-cancelable operating leases that expire at various dates through 2013. Certain leases obligate Asure to pay property taxes, maintenance and insurance and include escalation clauses. The total amount of base rentals over the term of the Company’s leases is charged to expense on a straight-line basis, with the amount of the rental expense in excess of the lease payments recorded as a deferred rent liability.  Approximately $0.660 million or 66.8% of the Company’s total operating lease obligations relate to its corporate office facility at Wild Basin in Austin, Texas.

Management continues to evaluate and reduce any unnecessary expenditure, while continuing to closely monitor all of its cash sources and uses as it manages its operations through the current recession.
 
 
Cash used in financing activities was $0.134 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 related to the repurchase of treasury stock for $0.110 million and payments on capital leases of $0.024 million.   Cash used in financing activities was $0.007 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was for payments on payments on capital leases.  Management believes it currently has sufficient cash and short-term investments on hand to fund its operations during the next twelve months and beyond without needing to obtain long-term financing. Therefore, the Company does not anticipate that it will be affected by any credit shortage in the current economic business environment.
 
Pursuant to Asure’s stock repurchase plan, the Company is allowed to repurchase up to 300,000 shares (adjusted for the 10 to 1 reverse stock split) of the Company’s common stock.  During the six months ended June 30, 2010 Asure repurchased 43,364 shares of common stock for $110 thousand.  In total, Asure has repurchased 256,107 shares for approximately $5.0 million over the life of the plan.  Management will periodically assess repurchasing additional shares, depending on the Company’s cash position, market conditions and other factors.
 
As of June 30, 2010, Asure’s principal source of liquidity consisted of $0.705 million of current cash and cash equivalents as well as future cash generated from operations.  The decline of cash and cash equivalents of $1.568 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 is due primarily to the lease amendment fee to Wild Basin of $1,500 and return of sub-tenant security deposits of $0.124 million recorded during the second quarter of 2010 and discussed above.  The Company believes that it has and/or will generate sufficient cash for its short and long term needs. The Company is continuing to reduce expenses and thus may utilize its cash balances in the short-term to reduce long-term costs.  The Company expects that it will be able to generate positive cash flows from operating activities for the remainder of 2010. 
 
Management is focused on growing its existing software operations and looking to make strategic acquisitions in the near future.  In the short-term, any acquisitions will be funded with equity, cash on the balance sheet, cash from operations, and cash or debt raised from outside sources.
 
There is no assurance that the Company will be able to grow its cash balances or limit its cash consumption and thus maintain sufficient  cash balances, and it is possible that the Company’s future business demands may lead to cash utilization at levels greater than recently experienced. Management believes that the Company has sufficient capital and liquidity to fund and cultivate the growth of its current and future operations for the next 12 months and thereafter.  However, due to uncertainties related to the timing and costs of these efforts, Asure may need to raise additional capital in the future.  Yet, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to raise additional capital if and when it is needed.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and include the accounts of Asure's wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in the consolidation. Preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of the assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at fiscal year end and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the fiscal year.  The more significant estimates made by management include the valuation allowance for the gross deferred tax asset, contingency legal reserves, lease impairment, useful lives of fixed assets, the determination of the fair value of its long-lived assets, and the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed during the iEmployee acquisition. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the given circumstances.  These estimates could be materially different under different conditions and assumptions.  Additionally, the actual amounts could differ from the estimates made. Management periodically evaluates estimates used in the preparation of the financial statements for continued reasonableness. Appropriate adjustments, if any, to the estimates used are made prospectively based upon such periodic evaluation.
 
 
Management believes the following represent Asure’s critical accounting policies:
 
Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the fee is fixed or determinable and collectability is probable.   The Company recognizes software revenue in accordance with FASB ASC 985-605, Revenue Recognition – Multiple Element Arrangements (FASB ASC 985-605).  The Company’s revenues consists of software license, software subscription and service fees.  Revenue from the software element is earned through the licensing or right to use the Company’s software and from the sale of specific software products.  Service fee income is earned through the sale of maintenance and technical support, training and installation. Revenue from the sale of hardware devices is recognized upon shipment of the hardware.  Asure also sells multiple elements within a single sale.  
 
When the Company sells software licenses in a multiple element arrangement and vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) of fair value is available for the undelivered element, sales revenue is generally recognized on the date the product is shipped, using the residual method, with a portion of revenue recorded as deferred (unearned) due to the applicable undelivered elements. VSOE of fair value for the maintenance, training and installation services are based on the prices charged for the maintenance and services when sold separately. Undelivered elements for our multiple element arrangements with a customer are generally restricted to post contract support, training and install. The amount of revenue allocated to these undelivered elements is based on the VSOE of fair value for those undelivered elements. Deferred revenue due to undelivered elements is recognized ratably on a straight-line basis over the service period (typically one year) or when the service is completed. When VSOE of fair value is not available for the undelivered element of a multiple element arrangement, sales revenue is generally recognized ratably, on a straight-line basis over the service period of the undelivered element.  The Company’s training and installation services are not essential to the functionality of the Company’s products as such services can be provided by a third party or the customers themselves.
 
The Company also sells software subscriptions and may at times sell related setup, implementation and professional services in the same arrangement.  Setup and implementation services typically occur at start of the software subscription period, while certain professional services may not occur several months later depending on the nature of the services and the customer requirements.  Prior to January 1, 2010, the Company recognized the total contract value of software subscriptions and related services ratably as a single unit of accounting over the contract term, beginning when the customer was able to utilize the software. Subsequent to the adoption of the updated FASB ASC 605, the Company accounts each of these elements as separate accounting units.  We allocate the value of the arrangement to each unit of accounting based on vendor specific objective evidence of selling price, when it exists, third-party evidence of selling prices for like services or estimated selling price. Software subscription service revenues are recognized pro-rata over the life of the software subscription contract, while the related setup, implementation or professional services revenues are recognized upon completion.  The result of the adoption is an immaterial acceleration of setup, implementation and professional service revenues related to software subscription transactions.
 
The Company does not recognize revenue for agreements with rights of return, refundable fees, cancellation rights or acceptance clauses until such rights of return, refund or cancellation have expired or acceptance has occurred.  The Company's arrangements with resellers do not allow for any rights of return.

Deferred revenue includes amounts received from customers in excess of revenue recognized, and is comprised of deferred maintenance, service and other revenue.  Deferred revenues are recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Operations when the service is completed and over the terms of the arrangements, primarily ranging from one to three years.

Impairment of Goodwill, Intangible Assets and Long-Lived Assets

Goodwill and other intangible assets with indefinite lives are not required to be amortized under FASB ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other   (FASB ASC 350) and accordingly, the Company reviews its goodwill for possible impairment on an annual basis, or whenever specific events warrant. Events that may create an impairment review include, but are not limited to: significant and sustained decline in the Company's stock price or market capitalization, significant underperformance of operating units and significant changes in market conditions and trends. Asure uses a two-step process and a discounted cash flow model to evaluate its assets for impairment. If the carrying amount of the goodwill or asset exceeds its implied fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to the excess during that fiscal period.  Intangible assets that are not deemed to have indefinite lives are amortized over their useful lives and are tested for impairment in accordance with FASB ASC 350.
 

 
In accordance with FASB ASC 350, Asure reviews and evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their net book value may not be recoverable.  When such factors and circumstances exist, including those noted above, the Company compares the assets’ carrying amounts against the estimated undiscounted cash flows to be generated by those assets over their estimated useful lives.  If the carrying amounts are greater than the undiscounted cash flows, the fair values of those assets are estimated by discounting the projected cash flows.  Any excess of the carrying amounts over the fair values are recorded as impairments in that fiscal period.

On May 3, 2010, the Company and Ceridian Corporation (“Ceridian”), a reseller of the Company’s iEmployee products, entered into an agreement by which joint customers of the Company and Ceridian were given until July 31, 2010 to choose either to  (i) contract directly with the Company to continue using our goods and services, or (ii) continue using Ceridian’s offerings that may not include the Company’s products and services.  Depending on the number of customers that contracted with Asure and the related pricing, the cash flows associated with the Ceridian customers may vary from historical levels.  Thus the Company tested the Ceridian contract intangible asset for impairment in accordance with FASB ASC 350.  The Company compared the asset’s carrying amount against the estimated undiscounted cash flows to be generated from the customers that contracted with Asure over the estimated useful life of the intangible asset.  The undiscounted cash flows from the intangible asset exceeded the carrying value of the intangible asset and thus no impairment was required.
 
ITEM 3.    QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
The Company is a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act and is not required to provide the information required under this item.
 
ITEM 4.    CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company.  The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports it files under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Such controls include those designed to ensure that information for disclosure is communicated to management, including the Chairman of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
The CEO and CFO, with the participation of management, have evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2010.  Based on their evaluation, they have concluded, to the best of their knowledge and belief, that the disclosure controls and procedures are effective.  No changes were made in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during the three months ended June 30, 2010, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting.  In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth in   Internal Control-Integrated Framework     issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.

 
PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

Asure was the defendant or plaintiff in various actions that arose in the normal course of business. With the exception of the proceedings described below, none of the pending legal proceedings to which the Company is a party are material to the Company.

Litigation with Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C.

On July 16, 2007, Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C. (“Jenkens”), Asure’s former legal counsel, filed a complaint against Asure and Compressions Labs, Inc., in the District Court of Dallas County, Texas.  In its complaint, Jenkens alleged a breach of contract and sought a declaratory judgment.  Asure disputed Jenkens’ claims and also sought relief through the court system.
 
After Asure terminated Jenkens, the Company entered into a Resolution Agreement with Jenkens in December 2004.  Under the Resolution Agreement, the Company believed Jenkens was entitled to $1,400 for all fees and expenses related to certain settlements received from licensing the Company's intellectual property.  Jenkens interpreted the Resolution Agreement on broader terms and initially believed it was entitled to $2,800.  As of July 31, 2007, Asure accrued $2,100 for Jenkens’ contingency fees related to these settlements. The Company recorded the contingency fees as part of cost of sales on its Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended July 31, 2007 in order to properly match the expenses to the related licensing revenues.  The $2,100 accrual remained as part of Asure’s current liabilities through fiscal year 2009.

On July 20, 2009, the trial with Jenkens commenced.  As the result of the jury verdict in July 2009 to award Jenkens approximately $4,600 in damages, attorney’s fees and interest, Asure entered into a settlement agreement with Jenkens, effective August 20, 2009.  Under the settlement agreement, Asure agreed to pay Jenkens $4,300 and the parties agreed to release all claims against each other.  Based on the settlement amount, the Company accrued an additional $2,200 as of July 31, 2009. Since the Company was no longer licensing its intellectual property and had no related licensing revenues in fiscal year 2009, this additional $2,200 expense was recorded as part of operating expenses on the Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended July 31, 2009.  Asure paid Jenkens $4,300 on August 25, 2009 and the Company considers this litigation to be concluded.
