Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accompanying unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared by Command Center, Inc. (“Command,” “us,” “we,” or “our”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial reporting, as well as the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP may have been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of our management, all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the fiscal periods presented have been included. The information included in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes to the financial statements included in our Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2012.

Consolidation: The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Command and all of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reclassifications: Certain financial statement amounts for the prior period have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the net income or loss, or accumulated deficit as previously reported.

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents consists of demand deposits, including interest-bearing accounts with original maturities of three months or less, held in banking institutions and a trust account. These accounts are guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000 per institution. As of September 27, 2013 and December 28, 2012, we held deposits in excess of FDIC insured limits of approximately $2.4 million and $705,000, respectively.

Fair Value Measures: Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset, or paid to transfer a liability, in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an ordinary transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Our policy on fair value measures requires us to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The policy establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The policy prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1: Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

Level 3: Applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Our financial instruments consist principally of stock warrants and a contingent liability.

The following table sets forth our assets and liabilities measured at fair value, whether recurring or non-recurring, at September 27, 2013 and December 28, 2012, and the fair value calculation input hierarchy level that we have determined applies to each asset and liability category.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements: Other accounting standards that have been issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other standards-setting bodies are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows. For period ended September 27, 2013, the adoption of other accounting standards had no material impact on our financial positions, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 2 – EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, and does not include the impact of any potentially dilutive common stock equivalents. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in our earnings through the conversion of common shares issuable via outstanding stock options and stock warrants, except where its inclusion would be anti-dilutive, and contingent shares yet to be issued. Total outstanding common stock equivalents at September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012 were 8,431,876 and 13,506,303, respectively.

Diluted common shares outstanding were calculated as follows:

NOTE 3 – ACCOUNT PURCHASE AGREEMENT

We have an account purchase agreement in place which allows us to sell eligible accounts receivable for 90% of the invoiced amount on a full recourse basis up to the facility maximum, $14 million, at September 27, 2013. When the receivable is collected, the remaining 10% is paid to us, less applicable fees and interest. Net outstanding accounts receivable sold pursuant to this agreement at September 27, 2013 were approximately $8.2 million. The term of the agreement is through April 7, 2016. The agreement bears interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate plus 3.0% per annum. At September 27, 2013 the effective interest rate was 3.2%. Interest is payable on the actual amount advanced or $3 million, whichever is greater. Additional charges include an annual facility fee equal to 0.75% of the facility threshold in place and lockbox fees. As collateral for repayment of any and all obligations, we granted Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. a security interest in all of our property including, but not limited to, accounts receivable, intangible assets, contract rights, investment property, deposit accounts, and other such asset.

The agreement requires that the sum of the excess available advances, plus our book cash balance at month end, must at all times be greater than accrued payroll and accrued payroll taxes. At September 27, 2013, we were in compliance with this covenant.

NOTE 4 – WORKERS' COMPENSATION INSURANCE AND RESERVES

On April 1, 2012, we changed our workers’ compensation carrier to Dallas National in all states in which we operate other than Washington, North Dakota and New York. The Dallas National coverage is a large deductible policy where we have primary responsibility for claims under the policy. Dallas National provides insurance for covered losses and expenses in excess of $350,000 per incident. Per our contractual agreements with Dallas National, we will make payments into and maintain a balance of $900,000 in a non-depleting deposit account to cover claims within our self-insured layer for injuries arising during the policy year. For workers' compensation claims originating in Washington, North Dakota and New York, we pay workers’ compensation insurance premiums and obtain full coverage under state government administered programs. Accordingly, in these jurisdictions our consolidated financial statements reflect only the mandated workers' compensation insurance premium liability for workers' compensation claims.

As part of our large deductible workers’ compensation programs, our carriers require that we collateralize a portion of our future workers’ compensation obligations in order to secure future payments which become due. This collateral is typically in the form of cash and cash equivalents. At September 27, 2013 and December 28, 2012 we had collateral deposits of approximately $2.9 million and $1.7 million, respectively.

Workers' compensation expense for temporary workers is recorded as a component of our cost of staffing services and totaled approximately $3.0 million and $3.1 million for thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively.

NOTE 5 – STOCKHOLDERS EQUITY

Issuance of Common Stock: There were no shares issued during the thirteen or thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013.

There are approximately 1.3 million shares to be issued related to the acquisition of assets of DR Services of Louisiana, LLC as part of a contingent fee calculation. The shares are to be issued to the owners of DR Services of Louisiana, LLC upon final approval by our Board of Directors. Due to the pending issuance, earlier this year we reclassified approximately $323,000 originally recorded as a contingent liability to additional paid-in capital in stockholders' equity, as the contingent fee was fully earned.

Stock Warrants: The following warrants for our common stock were issued and outstanding on September 27, 2013 and December 28, 2012, respectively:

   
September 27,
2013
   
December 28,
2012
 
Warrants outstanding at beginning of period
    11,887,803       12,137,803  
Expired
    (6,312,803 )     (250,000 )
Warrants outstanding at end of period
    5,575,000       11,887,803  

A detail of warrants outstanding September 27, 2013 is as follows:
 
   
Number of Warrants
 
Expiration Date
Exercisable at $0.08 per share
    4,200,000  
4/1/2014
Exercisable at between $0.50 and $1.00 per share
    1,375,000  
4/15/14 to 4/15/15
      5,575,000    

 
 
8

 
 
Of the warrants outstanding, 4.2 million are defined as a derivative instrument and the fair value of these warrants is estimated each period using the Black-Scholes pricing model. Expected volatility is based on historical annualized volatility of our stock. The expected term of warrants issued represents the period of time that warrants issued are expected to be outstanding. The risk-free rate is based upon the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of issuance. The assumptions used to calculate the fair value are as follows:
 
   
September 27,
2013
   
December 28,
2012
 
Expected terms (years)
    0.5       1.3  
Expected volatility
    74.6 %     95.2 %
Dividend yield
    0.0 %     0.0 %
Risk-free rate
    0.03 %     0.2 %
 
The change in fair value amounted to approximately $(787,000) and $218,000 for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. These changes are included in the line item Change in fair value of derivative liabilities in our Statement of Income.
 
NOTE 6 – STOCK BASED COMPENSATION
 
We approved an option plan in 2008 permitting the grant of 6.4 million stock options to employees for the purpose of attracting and motivating employees, officers and directors.
 
On February 22, 2013, we awarded our new Chief Executive Officer stock options for 1.5 million shares pursuant to our 2008 Stock Incentive Plan. These options were granted with a term of ten years from the date of grant and vest over a period of four years, with 25% vesting on the first anniversary of the date of grant and 25% vesting each anniversary thereafter for the following three years. The exercise price is $0.20 per share. Pursuant to previous awards, there were 1,568,750 and 1,373,000 options vested at September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively.
 
The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The assumptions used to calculate the fair value are as follows:

   
September 27,
2013
   
September 28,
2012
 
Expected term (years)
    5.0       5.0  
Expected volatility
    111.4 %     116.9 %
Dividend yield
    0.0 %     0.0 %
Risk-free rate
    0.8 %     0.8 %

The following table summarizes our stock options outstanding at December 28, 2012 and changes during the period ended September 27, 2013:

NOTE 7 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Legal Proceeding: On August 3, 2012, Trident Seafoods Corporation and Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. filed a lawsuit against us in the United States District Court, Western District of Washington, for declaratory judgment, breach of contract and violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act. This action is the result of a previous decision of the administrative law judge for the U.S. Department of Labor, wherein it was determined that a former temporary worker of ours was, in fact, an employee of Trident Seafoods for purposes of the U.S. Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. The administrative law judge ordered Trident Seafoods and its insurer Liberty Mutual to pay workers compensation benefits to the employee following a serious injury sustained while working on Trident’s project and under its direction and control. Trident Seafoods alleges we have a contractual duty to pay the workers’ compensation benefits for the injured “borrowed” employee. We dispute the claims asserted by Trident and we are vigorously defending this case.  Recently, the parties took part in a court-ordered mediation conference.  Although the case has not yet settled, discussions are ongoing. We believe the amounts accrued in our financial statements are adequate in consideration of the probable and estimable liabilities. The resolution of ongoing legal proceedings is not expected to have a material effect on our results of operations or financial condition.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and the change in fair value of our derivative liabilities (EBITDA-D) is a non-GAAP measure that represents net income attributable to Command before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense), depreciation and amortization, and the change in fair value of our derivative liabilities. We utilize EBITDA-D as a financial measure as management believes investors find it a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate our results of operations. We believe it is a complement to net income and other financial performance measures. EBITDA-D is not intended to represent net income as defined by GAAP, and such information should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.
 
 
11

 
 
We use EBITDA-D to measure our financial performance because we believe interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and the change in fair value of our derivative liabilities bear little or no relationship to our operating performance. By excluding interest expense, EBITDA-D measures our financial performance irrespective of our capital structure or how we finance our operations. By excluding taxes on income, we believe EBITDA-D provides a basis for measuring the financial performance of our operations excluding factors that our branches cannot control. By excluding depreciation and amortization expense, EBITDA-D measures the financial performance of our operations without regard to their historical cost. By excluding the change in fair value of our derivative liabilities, EBITDA-D provides a basis for measuring the financial performance of our operations excluding factors that are beyond our control. For all of these reasons, we believe that EBITDA-D provides us and investors with information that is relevant and useful in evaluating our business. However, because EBITDA-D excludes depreciation and amortization, it does not measure the capital we require to maintain or preserve our fixed assets. In addition, because EBITDA-D does not reflect interest expense, it does not take into account the total amount of interest we pay on outstanding debt nor does it show trends in interest costs due to changes in our financing or changes in interest rates. EBITDA-D, as defined by us, may not be comparable to EBITDA-D as reported by other companies that do not define EBITDA-D exactly as we define the term. Because we use EBITDA-D to evaluate our financial performance, we reconcile it to net income, which is the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
 
The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA-D to net loss for the periods presented:

Thirteen Weeks Ended September 27, 2013

Summary of Operations: Revenue for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2013 was $25.9 million, a decrease of approximately $2.5 million, or 9.6%, when compared to the third quarter of 2012. This decrease in revenue is related to the winding down of contracts ran through our wholly owned subsidiary, Disaster Recovery Services, Inc., a change in organizational structure and an increased focus maximizing income from operations by more effectively controlling our cost of staffing services and operating expenses.
 
Cost of Staffing Services: Cost of staffing services was 74.2% and 74.2% of revenue for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. Cost of services decreased largely due to a decrease in our per diem expense as we were engaged in less disaster work in 2013 than 2012 and a decrease in other costs of goods, materials and equipment rental related to contract work we were engaged in during 2012. This was offset by an increase in workers’ compensation expense and a slight increase in wages paid to our temporary employees (Field Team Members) and the related payroll taxes.
 
Workers' compensation expense was 5.3% and 4.3% of revenue for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively.  This increase is attributable to an increase in our claims liability as estimated by our actuary.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (“SG&A”): SG&A expenses were 17.0% and 22.1% of revenue for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. This decrease is related to a change in our organizational structure, large recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off, and a reduction in travel and travel related expenses.

Thirty-nine Weeks Ended September 27, 2013
 
Summary of Operations: Revenue for the Thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 was $69.1 million, a decrease of approximately $2.6 million, or 3.7%, when compared to 2012. This decrease in revenue is related to a change in organizational structure and an increased focus maximizing income from operations by more effectively controlling our cost of staffing services and operating expenses.

Cost of Staffing Services: Cost of staffing services was 74.3% and 74.9% of revenue for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. Cost of services decreased largely due to a decrease in our per diem expense as we were engaged in less disaster work in 2013 than 2012, and other cost of goods sold related to contracts work we were engaged in during 2012. This was offset by an increase in Field Team Member wages.
 
Workers' compensation expense was 4.4% and 4.3% of revenue for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. This is related to an increase in our workers’ compensation claims liability as estimated by our actuary.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses: SG&A expenses were 21.1% and 21.8% of revenue for the Thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 and September 28, 2012, respectively. This decrease is primarily related to a change in organizational structure and an increase in bad debt expenses.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Based on our current operating plan, we anticipate that we will have sufficient cash and cash equivalents to fund our operations into the foreseeable future. If the level of sales anticipated by our financial plan are not achieved or our working capital requirements are higher than planned, we may need to raise additional cash or take actions to reduce operating expenses.

Cash provided by operating activities totaled approximately $2.3 million during the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013, as compared to cash used by operations of approximately $2.0 million during the same period in 2012. During the third quarter of 2013, the cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to a decrease in accounts receivable of approximately $1.1 million. This decrease was due to the collection of receivables related to disaster work undertaken in 2012 as well as increased collections efforts. This was offset by an increase in our workers’ compensation risk pool deposits of approximately $1.2 million, a decrease in our workers’ compensation premiums and claims liability of approximately $589,000, a decrease in checks issued and payable of approximately $263,000 and a decrease in accrued wages and benefits of $209,000.

Cash provided by investing activities totaled approximately $2,000 for the period ended September 27, 2013 compared to cash used by investing activities of approximately $340,000 during the same time period in 2012. For the period ended September 27, 2013, approximately $38,000 was used to purchase additional property and equipment which was offset by cash received related to the sale of property and equipment of approximately $40,000. For the period ended September 28, 2012, approximately $190,000 was used to purchase property equipment and we paid $150,000 toward the purchase of DR Services of Louisiana, LLC (DRS, LLC).
 
Cash used by financing activities totaled approximately $883,000 for the period ended September 27, 2013 and relates to a reduction in the amount outstanding in our account purchase agreement with Wells Fargo. For the period ended September 28, 2012, approximately $2.7 million was provided by our account purchase agreement with Wells Fargo and $150,000 was used to pay down a note related to the acquisition of DRS, LLC.
 
Accounts Receivable: At September 27, 2013, we had total current assets of approximately $17.1 million. Included in current assets are trade accounts receivable of approximately $12.3 million (net of allowance for bad debts of approximately $811,000). Weighted average aging on our trade accounts receivable at September 27, 2013 was 40 days. Bad debt expense was approximately $(234,000) for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2013 compared to approximately $269,000 during the same time period in 2012. This negative expense is primarily due to a large payment we received shortly after quarter end for a receivable related to disaster work performed in 2012 that was fully reserved. Bad debt expense was approximately $743,000 for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2013 compared to approximately $269,000 during the same quarter the previous year. This increase in bad debt expense relates primarily to an increase in reserves established on three delinquent accounts of approximately $467,000. Although we have created a bad debt reserve for these three accounts, we are actively pursuing collection through the legal process.
 
 
13

 
 
Accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amounts. We regularly review our accounts receivable for collectability. Our allowance for doubtful accounts is determined based on historical write-off experience and current economic data and represents our best estimate of the amount of probable losses on our accounts receivable. We typically refer overdue balances to a collection agency at 120 days and the collection agent pursues collection for another 60 days. Most balances over 120 days past due are written off as it is probable the receivable will not be collected. We will continue to monitor and seek to improve our historical collection ratio and aging experience with respect to trade accounts receivable as these are important factors affecting our liquidity.
 
Financing: We have an account purchase agreement in place which allows us to sell eligible accounts receivable for 90% of the invoiced amount on a full recourse basis up to the facility maximum, $14 million, at September 27, 2013. When the receivable is collected, the remaining 10% is paid to us, less applicable fees and interest. Net outstanding accounts receivable sold pursuant to this agreement at September 27, 2013 were approximately $8.2 million. The term of the agreement is through April 7, 2016. The agreement bears interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate plus 3.0% per annum. At September 27, 2013 the effective interest rate was 3.2%. Interest is payable on the actual amount advanced or $3 million, whichever is greater. Additional charges include an annual facility fee equal to 0.75% of the facility threshold in place and lockbox fees. As collateral for repayment of any and all obligations, we granted Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. a security interest in all of our property including, but not limited to, accounts receivable, intangible assets, contract rights, investment property, deposit accounts, and other such asset.

Workers’ Compensation: On April 1, 2012 we changed our workers’ compensation carrier to Dallas National in all states in which we operate other than Washington, North Dakota and New York. Management believes this change will keep our workers’ compensation expense at a minimum. The Dallas National coverage is a large deductible policy where we have primary responsibility for claims under the policy. Dallas National provides insurance for covered losses and expenses in excess of $350,000 per incident. Per our contractual agreements with Dallas National, we will make payments into, and maintain a balance of, $900,000 in a non-depleting deposit account to cover claims within our self-insured layer for the policy year.
 
Effective as of April 1, 2013, we renewed our workers’ compensation insurance coverage with Dallas National for a period of 12 months. The terms of the coverage for the new policy year remain essentially the same, requiring an additional non-depleting collateral deposit of $900,000.
 
ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
There is no established market for trading our common stock. The market for our common stock is limited, and as such, shareholders may have difficulty reselling their shares when desired or at attractive market prices. The common stock is not regularly quoted in the automated quotation system of a registered securities system or association. Our common stock, par value $0.001 per share, is quoted on the OTC Markets Group QB (OTCQB) under the symbol “CCNI”. The OTCQB is a network of security dealers who buy and sell stock. The dealers are connected by a computer network which provides information on current “bids” and “asks” as well as volume information. The OTCQB is not considered a “national exchange”. The “over-the-counter” quotations do not reflect inter-dealer prices, retail mark-ups, commissions or actual transactions. Our common stock has continued to trade in low volumes and at low prices. Some investors view low-priced stocks as unduly speculative and therefore not appropriate candidates for investment. Many institutional investors have internal policies prohibiting the purchase or maintenance of positions in low- priced stocks.
 
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Principal Accounting Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1937, as amended, which we refer to as the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Principal Accounting Officer, we have concluded that, as of the end of such period, these controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. These disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
 
14

 
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
On August 3, 2012, Trident Seafoods Corporation and Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. filed a lawsuit against us in the United States District Court, Western District of Washington, for declaratory judgment, breach of contract and violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act. This action is the result of a previous decision of the administrative law judge for the U.S. Department of Labor, wherein it was determined that a former temporary worker of ours was, in fact, an employee of Trident Seafoods for purposes of the U.S. Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. The administrative law judge ordered Trident Seafoods and its insurer Liberty Mutual to pay workers compensation benefits to the employee following a serious injury sustained while working on Trident’s project and under its direction and control. Trident Seafoods alleges we have a contractual duty to pay the workers’ compensation benefits for the injured “borrowed” employee. We dispute the claims asserted by Trident and we are vigorously defending this case.  Recently, the parties took part in a court-ordered mediation conference.  Although the case has not yet settled, discussions are ongoing.
