Highlight of Business Operations:In addition, the Company records an inventory obsolescence reserve, which represents any excess of the cost of the inventory over its estimated market value, based on various product sales projections. This reserve is calculated using an estimated obsolescence percentage applied to the inventory based on age, historical trends, requirements to support forecasted sales, and the ability to find alternate applications of its raw materials and to convert finished product into alternate versions of the same product to better match customer demand. In addition, and as necessary, the Company may establish specific reserves for future known or anticipated events. There is inherent professional judgment and subjectivity made by both production and engineering members of management in determining the estimated obsolescence percentage. For the fiscal years 2013 and 2012, net charges and balances in these reserves amounted to $354,000 and $3,392,000; and $504,000 and $3,038,000, respectively.
