Note 3 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Significant Accounting Policies
The significant accounting policies used in preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 are consistent with those discussed in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements in the Company's 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K. There have been no material changes to the Company's significant accounting policies during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Motus Ltd., an Israel corporation, which has operations in Tirat Carmel, Israel, and Motus Inc., a Delaware corporation, which has operations in the U.S. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of estimates
The preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Basic and diluted net loss per share
Basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year, plus the number of common shares that would have been outstanding if all potentially dilutive ordinary shares had been issued, using the treasury stock method, in accordance with ASC 260-10 "Earnings per Share". Potentially dilutive common shares were excluded from the calculation of diluted loss per share for all periods presented due to their anti-dilutive effect due to losses in each period.
The Company provides for income taxes using the asset and liability approach. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities and the tax rates in effect when these differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, the Company had a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded zero income tax expense. No tax benefit has been recorded in relation to the pre-tax loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, due to a full valuation allowance to offset any deferred tax asset related to net operating loss carry forwards attributable to the losses.
Restructuring charges are comprised of severance costs related to workforce reductions and other costs directly related to the 2020 Plan, including lease exit and fixed asset impairment. The Company recognizes restructuring charges when the liability is incurred. Employee termination benefits are accrued at the date management has committed to a plan of termination and employees have been notified of their termination dates and expected severance payments, see Note 12.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, "Changes to Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements", which will improve the effectiveness of disclosure requirements for recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. ASU 2018-13 removes, modifies, and adds certain disclosure requirements, and is effective for all entities for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2019. The Company adopted ASU 2018-13 on January 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, "Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40) — Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service". ASU 2018-15 aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that include an internal use software license), by requiring a customer in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract to capitalize certain implementation costs as if the arrangement was an internal-use software project, and is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company adopted ASU 2018-15 on January 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-15 did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments — Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments" to improve information on credit losses for financial assets and net investment in leases that are not accounted for at fair value through net income. ASU 2016-13 replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. In April 2019 and May 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, "Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments — Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments" and ASU 2019-05, "Financial Instruments — Credit Losses (Topic 326): Targeted Transition Relief" which provided additional implementation guidance on the previously issued ASU. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, "Financial Instruments — Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates", which defers the effective date for public filers that are considered small reporting companies ("SRC") as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Since the Company is an SRC, implementation is not needed until January 1, 2023. The Company will continue to evaluate the effect that adopting ASU 2016-13 will have on the Company's financial statements and disclosures.
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes", which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. This ASU removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, "Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting". The ASU is intended to provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the US GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens related to the expected market transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates. This guidance is effective beginning on March 12, 2020, and the Company may elect to apply the amendments prospectively through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
