"2021 was a year of transition for t42 with a new strategy, a new defined target market of the global shipping container market and a new name and brand to reflect our ambition to provide a comprehensive and unique solution for our customers.

"2021 was also a demanding year as we dealt with the challenges of the pandemic and with the task of reorientating the business to focus on the opportunity in our new target market, itself facing huge challenges as global supply chains went from near dormancy to frenzied levels of activity.

"We have begun 2022 with positive momentum from client wins, which validate our new strategic direction, and we are now focused on delivery and converting customer interest into contract wins. Even with our best ever pipeline of potential new orders, we will retain our focus on continuous product improvements and maintaining high standards of customer care.

"We are optimistic about the opportunity ahead and wish to thank our employees, shareholders and other partners for their support during a difficult year during which, despite the challenges, we feel we were able to lay the foundations of future success."

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

The results for 2021 reflect the negative ongoing impact of COVID-19 and the many supply chain issues caused by this pandemic, but later in the year saw the very positive move to rebrand the Company and its products and success in signing two important commercial contracts which are expected to dramatically improve the revenue prospects of the Company over the next few years.

 

We had hoped for an improvement in revenues in the second half of the year but as with many other companies it was not until the end of the year that we began to see that happening. As a result, the final revenues were $4.2m with negative EBITDA of $0.97m and an effective gross margin of 40% following adjustments referred to below. In view of the decision to rebrand products and focus on those designed to protect freight and container units it was decided to review the treatment of intangible assets and valuation of stock. Appropriate adjustments have been made with those items in the accounts and described below under the financial review.

 

During the year the supply of microchips and related long lead times and costs increases continued to hold back our growth despite the clear technological benefits provided by our products. As reported in our interim statement our pipeline of new potential deals was at an all time high and it is pleasing to be able to report that some of these have indeed been secured as previously reported. In December 2021 we reported the signing of an agreement with a consortium in Latin America which will provide the Company's solution to protecting and monitoring freight at various ports, and which could generate over $40m of revenues if the maximum number of product units indicated by the customer are deployed over a five-year period. Early in January 2022 the Company reported another agreement with OpenBox Ventures Inc in the USA which could result in significant revenues over the next few years. Of course, these are in addition to the continuing levels of business with existing clients and the very important ongoing and recurring SaaS revenues that come with the majority of our products.

 

During the year under review our HELIOS product range continued to provide the majority of sales at around 57%, and although this product range tends to be low margin business, it does create ongoing SaaS revenues. However, we intend to focus on higher gross margin products in the future such as the Lokies product and other container tracking devices. We believe that currently our products for this sector offer a unique solution to the problems faced by the container and freight sectors, and while there is no doubt others will develop similar products, we believe we have a first mover advantage to secure a significant percentage of an enormous market opportunity. In considering the best way forward to capitalize on this we are examining alternative forms of finance for that industry sector opportunity, since we believe that the future lies in our ability to control the data provided by our technology. This could involve providing a very low up-front cost for our products but with increased monthly charges for usage. Clearly this will involve the need to fund such a strategy if we decide to proceed. Our objective is to test the market appetite for such an approach over the next few months.

 

Sales of the smart padlock launched under the Lokies brand increased to 13% of our revenues from only 5% in the previous year. As previously announced, we were successful in winning the DHL Smart Guard Innovation Challenge in Singapore earlier in the year for the Lokies product and, after more trials, we  secured our first initial order for this product in January 2022 with the expectation of further orders to follow.

 

We have been working closely with our advisers on the rebranding of the Company and its products, and restructuring our sales team to reflect the new focus as well as examining opportunities to expand the Company both organically and where appropriate with suitable alliances.

 

In November 2021, Mr Avi Engel, one of the non-executive directors, stepped down from the board. Avi has served as a director since August 2015 and we thank him for his valuable contribution to the board and wish him every success in his other activities.

 

We have successfully raised £1.35m new cash during the second half of 2021 from new investors who recognize the opportunity for more growth and are happy to support the company at increasing share prices.

 

FINANCIAL REVIEW

 

Group revenues for the year were $4.2m, compared with $5.04m for the year ended 31 December 2020, a decrease of 16%.

 

The gross margin for the year shown in the accounts was approximately 30% but this reflected the one-time reduction in stock levels. The ongoing gross margin would be nearer 40% without this deduction. compared with 33% for 2020.

 

Total operating expenditure for the year was $3.98m (2020: $3.4m), mainly due to non-cash expenses such as depreciation, share option provisions and exceptional impairment made for intangible assets.

 

Net loss after taxation for the year increased to $2.96m compared with the 2020 net loss of $2.05m. The operating loss in the period was $2.69m, compared to an operating loss of $1.78m in 2020.

 

The Group recorded an exchange rate loss of $0.1m resulting from the strengthening of the Israeli Shekel compared with the US dollar (2020: loss of $0.14m).

 

The Group balance sheet showed decrease in trade receivables of $0.68m, compared with $1.1m as at 31 December 2020.

 

Group inventories at the period end were $1.8m, compared to $2.1m as at the end of 2020. An exceptional provision for obsolete stock was made of $0.38m.

 

As a part of the re-valuation of the intangible assets due to rebranding and new strategy the company impaired $0.83m of intangible asset value.

 

Trade payables at the year-end were stable at $1.55m, compared with $1.6m as at 31 December 2020.

 

Net cash used in operating activities in the period was approximately $0.38m, compared with $0.4m for the year ended 31 December 2020.

As detailed in notes 10, 12 and 13 of this financial report, the Company has loans with a leading Israeli Bank. The financial covenants as detailed in note 12 were breached at the quarter ending 31 December 2021. The Company and the bank are monitoring the position carefully, remain in close correspondence, and are working towards a solution. 

OUTLOOK

 

The new contracts in Latin America and the USA recognize the strength of our technology in the container and freight movement market and are expected to lead to further contracts over the next few months. While the supply chain issues continue to create delays in deliveries, we have succeeded in securing additional supplies of microchips which should enable a very strong performance in 2022 with an expected return to positive EBITDA and further growth in succeeding years.

NOTE 2B -

USE OF ESTIMATES AND JUDGMENTS

 

 

 

 

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

 

 

 

 

Upon formulation of accounting estimates used in preparation of the Group financial statements, management is required to make assumptions in regard to circumstances and events that are significantly uncertain. Management arrives at these decisions based on prior experiences, various facts, external items and reasonable assumptions in accordance with the circumstances related to each assumption.

 

 

Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Information about critical judgment in applying accounting policies that have a significant effect on the amounts recognized in the consolidated financial statements is included in the following Notes:

Financial instruments

 

 

 

(i) Non-derivative financial assets

 

 

The Group initially recognizes loans and receivables on the date that they are originated. All other financial assets (including assets designated as at fair value through profit or loss) are recognized initially on the trade date, which is the date that the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

 

 

 

 

 

The Group derecognizes a financial asset when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or it transfers the rights to receive the contractual cash flows in a transaction in which substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the financial asset are transferred. Any interest in such transferred financial assets that is created or retained by the Group is recognized as a separate asset or liability.

 

 

 

 

 

Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Group has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realize the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.

 

 

 

 

 

The Group classified non-derivative financial assets into the following categories: Financial assets at fair value, through profit or loss, held-to-maturity financial assets, loans and receivables, and available-for-sale financial assets.

 

 

 

 

 

Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss:

 

 

A financial asset is classified as at fair value through profit or loss if it is classified as held for trading or is designated as such on initial recognition. Financial assets are designated as at fair value through profit or loss if the Group manages such investments and makes purchase and sale decisions based on their fair value in accordance with the Group's documented risk management or investment strategy. Attributable transaction costs are recognized in profit or loss as incurred. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are measured at fair value and changes therein, which take into account any dividend income, are recognized in profit or loss.

 

 

 

 

 

Financial assets designated as at fair value through profit or loss comprise equity securities that otherwise would have been classified as available for sale.

 

 

 

 

 

Loans and receivables:

 

 

Loans and receivables are financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are recognized initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses.

 

 

Loans and receivables are comprised of trade and other receivables, excluding short -term trade and other receivables where the interest amount is immaterial.

(ii) Non-derivative financial liabilities

 

 

 

The Group initially recognizes debt securities issued and subordinated liabilities on the date that they originated. All other financial liabilities (including liabilities designated as at fair value through profit or loss) are recognized initially on the trade date, which is the date that the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group derecognizes a financial liability when its contractual obligations are discharged, cancelled or expire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group classifies non-derivative financial liabilities into the other financial liabilities category. Such financial liabilities are recognized initially at fair value less any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, these financial liabilities are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other financial liabilities comprise loans and borrowings, bank overdrafts, and trade and other payables.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(iii) Compound financial instruments

 

 

 

Compound financial instruments issued by the Company comprised: an interest-bearing loan with a conversion option issued to the lender.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The option component was recognized initially at its fair value using a binomial calculation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The liability component was recognized initially as the difference between the loan amount and the option component

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Any directly attributable transaction costs are allocated to the liability and equity components in proportion to their initial carrying amounts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Subsequent to initial recognition, the liability component of a compound financial instrument is measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method. The equity component of a compound financial instrument is not remeasured subsequent to initial recognition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interest related to the financial liability is recognized in profit or loss.

d.

Cash and cash equivalents

 

 

 

Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash balances and call deposits with maturities of three months or less from the acquisition date that are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in their fair value and are used by the Group in the management of its short-term commitments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

e.

Share capital

 

 

 

Ordinary shares:

 

 

 

Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of ordinary shares are recognized as a deduction from equity, net of any tax effects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

f.

Property, plant and equipment

 

 

 

 

Property, plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation.

 

 

 

Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, at the following annual rates:

 

 

 

 

%

 

 

 

Computers and software

33

 

 

 

Office furniture and equipment

7 - 15

 

 

 

Vehicles

15

 

 

 

Laboratory equipment

15

 

 

 

Leasehold improvements

10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leasehold improvements are depreciated by the straight-line method over the term of the lease, ten-year period, (including option terms) or the estimated useful lives of the improvements, unless it is reasonably certain that the Group will obtain ownership by the end of the lease term.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                       

 

At each balance sheet date, the Group examines the residual value, the useful life and the depreciation method it uses. If the Group identifies material changes in the expected residual value, the useful life or the future pattern of consumption of future economic benefits in the asset that may indicate that a change in the depreciation is required, such changes are treated as changes in accounting estimates.   In the reported periods, no material changes have taken place with any material effect on the financial statements of the Group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

g.

Intangible assets: Research and development

 

 

 

 

 

Expenditure on research activities, undertaken with the prospect of gaining new scientific or technical knowledge and understanding, is recognized in profit or loss as incurred.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Development activities involve a plan or design for the production of new or substantially improved products and processes. Development expenditure is capitalized only if development costs can be measured reliably, the product or process is technically and commercially feasible, future economic benefits are probable, and the Group intends and has sufficient resources to complete development and to use or sell the asset.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The expenditure capitalized includes the cost of materials, direct labor, overhead costs that are directly attributable to preparing the asset for its intended use. Other development expenditure is recognized in profit or loss as incurred.

g.

Intangible assets: Research and development (cont.)

 

 

 

Expenditure on research activities, undertaken with the prospect of gaining new scientific or technical knowledge and understanding, is recognized in profit or loss as incurred.

 

 

 

Capitalized development expenditure is measured at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses. Amortization is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets: ten years.

 

 

 

 

 

At each balance sheet date, the Group reviews whether any events have occurred or changes in circumstances have taken place, which might indicate that there has been an impairment of the intangible assets. When such indicators of impairment are present, the Group evaluates whether the carrying value of the intangible asset in the Group's accounts can be recovered from the cash flows anticipated from that asset, and, if necessary, records an impairment provision up to the amount needed to adjust the carrying amount to the recoverable amount.

 

 

 

 

h.

Short-term deposit

 

 

 

Deposits with maturities of more than three months but less than one year are included in short-term deposits.

 

 

 

 

i.

Leases

 

 

 

The Group assesses at contract inception whether a contract is, or contains, a lease. That is, if the contract conveys the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration.

 

 

 

 

 

Group as a lessee

 

 

The Group applies a single recognition and measurement approach for all leases, except for short-term leases and leases of low-value assets. The Group recognizes lease liabilities to make lease payments and right-of-use assets representing the right to use the underlying assets.

 

 

1.   Right-of-use assets

 

 

The Group recognizes right-of-use assets at the commencement date of the lease (i.e., the date the underlying asset is available for use). Right-of-use assets are measured at cost, less any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, and adjusted for any remeasurement of lease liabilities. The cost of right-of-use assets includes the amount of lease liabilities recognized, initial direct costs incurred, and lease payments made at or before the commencement date less any lease incentives received. Right-of-use assets are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the lease term and the estimated useful lives of the assets, as follows:

 

 

Property -               5 years

 

 

Vehicles -                3 years

 

 

If ownership of the leased asset transfers to the Group at the end of the lease term or the cost reflects the exercise of a purchase option, depreciation is calculated using the estimated useful life of the asset.

 

 

The right-of-use assets are also subject to impairment. Refer to the accounting policies in Note 2C(k).

i.

Leases (cont.)

 

 

 

2.   Lease liabilities

 

 

At the commencement date of the lease, the Group recognizes lease liabilities measured at the present value of lease payments to be made over the lease term. The lease payments include fixed payments (including in substance fixed payments) less any lease incentives receivable, variable lease payments that depend on an index or a rate, and amounts expected to be paid under residual value guarantees. The lease payments also include the exercise price of a purchase option reasonably certain to be exercised by the Group and payments of penalties for terminating the lease, if the lease term reflects the Group exercising the option to terminate.

Variable lease payments that do not depend on an index or a rate are recognized as expenses (unless they are incurred to produce inventories) in the period in which the event or condition that triggers the payment occurs.

 

 

In calculating the present value of lease payments, the Group uses its incremental borrowing rate at the lease commencement date because the interest rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable. After the commencement date, the amount of lease liabilities is increased to reflect the accretion of interest and reduced for the lease payments made. In addition, the carrying amount of lease liabilities is remeasured if there is a modification, a change in the lease term, a change in the lease payments (e.g., changes to future payments resulting from a change in an index or rate used to determine such lease payments) or a change in the assessment of an option to purchase the underlying asset.

 

 

3.   Short-term leases and leases of low-value assets

 

 

The Group applies the short-term lease recognition exemption to its short-term leases of machinery and equipment (i.e., those leases that have a lease term of 12 months or less from the commencement date and do not contain a purchase option). It also applies the lease of low-value assets recognition exemption to leases of office equipment that are considered to be low value. Lease payments on short-term leases and leases of low value assets are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

 

 

 

j.

Inventories

 

 

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net market value.

 

 

Cost is determined using the "first-in, first -out" method.

 

 

Inventory write-downs are provided to cover risks arising from slow-moving items, technological obsolescence, excess inventories, and discontinued products and for market prices lower than cost, if any. At the point of loss recognition, a new lower cost basis for that inventory is established.

k.

Impairment in value of assets

 

 

 

 

During every financial period, the Group examines the book value of its tangible and intangible assets to determine any signs of loss from impairment in value of these assets. In the event that there are signs of impairment, the Group examines the realization value of the designated asset. In the event that the realization cannot be measured for an individual asset, the Group estimates realization value for the unit where the asset belongs. Joint assets are assigned to the units yielding cash on the same basis. Joint assets are designated to the smallest groups of yielding assets for which one can identify a reasonable basis that is consistent with the allocation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The realization value is the higher of net sale price of the asset as compared with its useful life that is determined by the present value of projected cash flows to be realized from this asset and its realization value at the end of its useful life.

In the event that the book value of the asset or cash-yielding unit is greater than its realization value, a devaluation of the asset has occurred in the amount of the difference between its book value and its realization value. This amount is recognized immediately in the statements of comprehensive income.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the event that prior devaluation of an asset is nullified, the book value of the asset or of the cash-yielding unit is increased to the estimated current fair value, but not in excess of the asset or cash-yielding unit book value that would have existed had there not been devaluation. Such nullification is recognized immediately in the statements of comprehensive income.

 

 

 

 

 

 

l.

Revenue recognition

 

 

 

 

The Group generates revenues from sales of products, which include hardware and software, software licensing, professional services and maintenance. Professional services include mainly installation, project management, customization, consulting and training. The Group sells its products indirectly through a global network of distributors, system integrators and strategic partners, all of whom are considered end-users, and through its direct sales force.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Revenue from products and software licensing is recognized when persuasive evidence of an agreement exists, delivery of the product has occurred, the fee is fixed or determinable and collectability is probable.

 

 

 

Revenues from maintenance and professional services are recognized ratably over the contractual period or as services are performed, respectively.

NOTE 2C -

m.

Allowance for doubtful accounts

 

 

 

The Group evaluates its allowance for doubtful accounts on a regular basis through periodic reviews of the collectability of the receivables in light of historical experience, adverse situations that may affect the repayment abilities of its customers, and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.

 

 

The Group performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and generally does not require collateral because (1) management believes it has certain collection measures in-place to limit the potential for significant losses, and (2) because of the nature of its customers that comprise the Group's customer base. Receivables are written off when the Group abandons its collection efforts. An allowance for doubtful accounts is provided with respect to those amounts that the Group has determined to be doubtful of collection.

 

 

 

 

n.

Concentrations of credit risk

 

 

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Group to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, short-term deposits and trade receivables.

 

 

 

 

o.

Provisions

 

 

 

Provisions are recognized when the Group has a current obligation (legal or derived) as a result of a past occurrence that can be reliably measured, that will in all probability result in the Group being required to provide additional benefits in order to settle this obligation. Provisions are determined by capitalization of projected cash flows at a rate prior to taxes that reflects the current market preparation for the money duration and the specific risks for the liability.

 

 

 

 

p.

Employee benefits

 

 

 

The Group has several benefit plans for its employees:

 

 

 

 

 

1.

Short-term employee benefits -

 

 

Short-term employee benefits include salaries, vacation days, recreation and deposits to the National Insurance Institute that are recognized as expenses when rendered.

 

2.

Benefits upon retirement -

 

 

Benefits upon retirement, generally funded by deposits to insurance companies and pension funds, are classified as restricted deposit plans or as restricted benefits.

All Group employees have restricted deposit plans, in accordance with Section 14 of the Severance Pay Law (Israel), whereby the Group pays fixed amounts without bearing any legal responsibility to pay additional amounts thereto even if the fund did not accumulate enough amounts to pay the entire benefit amount to the employee that relates to the services he rendered during the current and prior periods. Deposits to the restricted plan are classified as for benefits or for compensation and are recognized as an expense upon deposit to the plan concurrent with receiving services from the employee and no additional provision is required in the financial statements.

q.

Finance income and expenses

 

 

 

Finance income includes interest in regard to invested amounts, changes in the fair value of financial assets presented at fair value in the statements of comprehensive income and gains from changes in the exchange rates and interest income that are recognized upon accrual using the effective interest method.

 

 

Finance expenses include interest on loans received, changes in the time estimate of provisions, changes in the fair value of financial assets presented at fair value in the statements of comprehensive loss and losses from changes in value of financial assets.

 

 

Gains and losses from exchange rate differences are reported net. Exchange rate differences in regard to issuance of shares are charged to equity.

 

 

 

 

r.

Taxes

 

 

Tax expense comprises current and deferred tax. Current tax and deferred tax are recognized in profit or loss except to the extent that they relate to a business combination, or items recognized directly in equity or in other comprehensive income.

 

 

 

 

 

Current tax is the expected tax payable or receivable on the taxable income or loss for the year, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date, and any adjustment to tax payable in respect of previous years. Current tax payable also includes any tax liability arising from the declaration of dividends.

 

 

 

 

 

Deferred tax is recognized in respect of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for taxation purposes.

 

 

 

 

 

Deferred tax is not recognized for:

 

 

Temporary differences on the initial recognition of assets or liabilities in a transaction that is not a business combination and that affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss;

 

 

Temporary differences related to investments in subsidiaries and jointly controlled entities to the extent that it is probable that they will not reverse in the foreseeable future; and

 

 

Taxable temporary differences arising on the initial recognition of goodwill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deferred tax is measured at the tax rates that are expected to be applied to temporary differences when they reverse, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date.

 

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax liabilities and assets, and they relate to taxes levied by the same Tax Authority on the same taxable entity, or on different tax entities, but they intend to settle current tax liabilities and assets on a net basis or their tax assets and liabilities will be realized simultaneously.

r.

Taxes (cont.)

 

 

Since there is uncertainty in regard to existence of taxable revenues in the near future, a deferred tax asset was not recognized.

 

 

A deferred tax asset is recognized for unused tax losses, tax credits and deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which they can be utilized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are reviewed at each reporting date and are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit (taxes on income) will be realized.

 

 

 

 

s.

Basic and Diluted Earnings per Share

 

 

Basic earnings per share are computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each year.

Diluted earnings per share are computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each year, plus dilutive potential common shares considered outstanding during the year. 

 

 

 

 

t.

Statement of cash flows

 

 

The statement of cash flows from current operations is presented using the indirect method, whereby interest amounts paid and received by the Group are included in the cash flows in current operations.

 

 

 

 

u.

Dividend distribution

 

 

Dividend distribution to the Company's shareholders is recognized as a liability in the Group's financial statements in the period in which the dividends are approved by the Group's shareholders.

 

 

 

 

v.

Segment reporting

 

 

Segment results that are reported to the CEO include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis. Unallocated items comprise mainly corporate assets, head office expenses and tax.

 

 

 

 

w.

Government grants

 

 

A government grant is not recognized until there is reasonable assurance that the Group will comply with the conditions attaching to it, and that the grant will be received. The Group received government grants, the nature of which is compensation for a decrease in revenues, the Group decided to record the grants received by the Government of Israel as revenues.

NOTE 21 -

FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND MANAGEMENT OF FINANCIAL RISKS

 

a.

Financial Risk Factors:

 

 

The Group's operations expose it to a variety of financial risks, including: market, currency, credit and liquidity risks. The comprehensive Group plan for risk management focuses on the fact that it is not possible to predict financial market behavior and an effort to minimize possible negative effects on Company financial performance.

 

 

In this Note, information is stated in regard to Group exposure to each of the risks abovementioned and the handling of these risks. Risk management and capital are handled by the Group management that identifies and evaluates financial risks.

 

 

1)

Exchange rate risk

 

 

 

Group operations are exposed to exchange rate risks arising mainly from exposure of loans that are linked to the NIS from banks, suppliers and others.

 

 

2)

Credit risk

 

 

 

Credit risks are handled at the Group level. These risks arise from cash and cash equivalents, bank deposits and unpaid receivable balances. The Group settled a credit insurance with one of the biggest credit insurance companies worldwide and manages its credit risk accordingly. Cash and cash equivalent balances of the Group are deposited in an Israeli bank. Group management is of the opinion that there is insignificant credit risk regarding these amounts.

 

 

3)

Liquidity risks

 

 

 

Cautious management of liquidity risks requires that there will be sufficient amounts of cash to finance operations. Group management currently examines projections regarding liquidity surpluses deriving from cash and cash equivalents. This examination is based on projected cash flows, in accordance with procedures and limitations determined by the Group.

Short term loan covenants compliance is closely monitored by the financial department.

 

b.

Linkage terms of financial instruments:

 

 

Group exposure to Index and foreign currency risks, based on par value, except for derivative financial instruments is as follows:

Leases

 

 

 

Group as a lessee

 

The Group has lease contracts for various items of property and vehicles used in its operations. The leases of property have lease terms of 5 years, while motor vehicles have lease terms of 3 years. The Group's obligations under its leases are secured by the lessor's title to the leased assets. Generally, the Group is restricted from assigning and subleasing.

There are several lease contracts that include extension and termination options, which are further discussed below.

 

The Group also has certain leases of machinery with lease terms of 12 months or less and leases of office equipment with low value. The Group applies the 'short-term lease' and 'lease of low-value assets' recognition exemptions for these leases.

NOTE 22 -

Leases (cont.)

 

 

The Group had total cash outflows for leases of $137 in 2021 ($162 in 2020). The Group also had non-cash additions to right-of-use assets and lease liabilities of $629 in 2021 ($249 in 2020)

The Group has several lease contracts that include extension and termination options. These options are negotiated by management to provide flexibility in managing the leased-asset portfolio and to align with the Group's business needs. Management performs significant judgment operations in determining whether these extension and termination options are reasonably certain to be exercised.

Below are the undiscounted potential future rental payments relating to periods following the exercise date of extension and termination options that are not included in the lease term:

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS DURING THE REPORTED PERIOD (COVID-19)

 

 

 

Due to the pandemic outbreak since March 2020, most of the countries across the globe have taken extra measures to prevent and reduce COVID-19 exposure.

The unprecedented conditions resulted in a decrease in revenues for the year. In addition, normal global component's shortage, purchasing processes and difficult shipping limitations created additional costs and delays which impacted the Group ability to fully respond to the increased business demand. To meet this demand, the Groups' management made special arrangements to obtain sufficient components for the future ongoing business through 2022.

The Group has taken actions to manage its liquidity, including reducing operating expenses and strict cash flow monitoring. Based on current operational assumptions, the Group believes it has adequate liquidity beyond the next twelve months.

In addition, the Group also managed to use the opportunity of COVID-19 impact on freight movement from the other hand and was able to conclude 2 significant distribution contracts which are expected to contribute significantly to revenues during 2022.
