Approximately $4.1 million or 34% of the net loss in 2015 was attributable to non-cash charges related to warrant derivative liabilities and changes in the fair value of secured convertible notes payable.
  • On a non-GAAP basis, the Company recorded an adjusted net loss of ($5,448,791), or ($1.26) per share, in 2015 compared with a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($1,591,885), or ($0.61) per share in the year ended December 31, 2014.
  • Shipments of the FirstVU HD body cameras generated 20% of the Company's total sales in the full year of 2015, compared with 11% the previous year.

Such patent includes a total of 59 claims covering various aspects of our auto-activation technology, which allows our in-car video system and FirstVU HD body cameras to work seamlessly together in gathering and recording evidence collection activities for law enforcement agencies. See "Taser International Litigation Developments" below for further information.
  • Our international revenues decreased to $148,667, representing 1% of total revenues, during the year ended December 31, 2015 compared to $961,763, representing 6% of total revenues, during the year ended December 31, 2014. 

Taser International Litigation Developments

The Company received notice in April 2015 that TASER International, Inc. ("Taser") had commenced an action in the United States Patent & Trademark Office ("USPTO") for a re-examination of its U.S. Patent No. 8,781,292 ("the '292 Patent"), which is principally embodied in its VuLink product relating to the Company's auto-activation technology for law enforcement body-worn cameras and in-car audio/video cameras. 

On January 14, 2016 the USPTO rejected Taser's efforts and confirmed the validity of the '292 patent with 59 claims covering various aspects of the Company's auto-activation technology. On February 2, 2016 the USPTO issued another patent relating to the Company's auto-activation technology for law enforcement cameras. U.S. Patent No. 9,253,452 ("the '452 patent") generally covers the automatic activation and coordination of multiple recording devices in response to a triggering event such as a law enforcement officer activating the light bar on the vehicle.

The Company filed suit on January 15, 2016 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas (Case No: 2:16-cv-02032) against Taser, alleging that Taser willfully infringed the '292 Patent by selling and offering to sell its Axon camera product line and Signal Performance Power Magazine. The Company initiated the lawsuit after the USPTO reconfirmed the validity of its '292 patent. On February 2, 2016, the Company amended its complaint against Taser, further alleging that Taser is directly and indirectly liable for infringing the '452 Patent in addition to the 292' patent. The Company's amended complaint seeks both monetary damages and a permanent injunction against Taser for infringing both the '452 and '292 Patents.

In addition to these patent infringement claims, the amended complaint added a new set of claims to the lawsuit alleging that Taser conspired to keep the Company out of the marketplace by engaging in improper, unethical, and unfair competition. The amended lawsuit alleges Taser bribed officials and otherwise conspired to secure no-bid contracts for its products in violation of both state law and federal antitrust law. The Company's lawsuit also seeks monetary and injunctive relief, including treble damages, for these alleged violations. On March 4, 2016, Taser filed a motion to dismiss our complaint which is now pending before the court.

"The Company believes that the outcome of this litigation will generally set the competitive landscape for body-worn cameras utilized by law enforcement agencies for the foreseeable future," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "Furthermore, the Company's auto-activation technology for law enforcement body-worn and in-car audio/video cameras embodied in its '292 and '452 patents is becoming a standard requirement within the industry." 

Management Comments

"We are pleased to report revenues for the year ended 2015 increased 15% from the year prior, although we saw a slight decrease in revenue during the fourth quarter," stated Mr. Ross. "We believe the improvement was likely spurred by the attention to the benefits of video evidence received during the civil unrest beginning in Ferguson, Missouri and expanding to other US cities.

"We believe our 2015 revenue improvement over 2014 could have been greater had the third and fourth quarter 2015 revenues not been adversely impacted after Taser stated in a September 2015 press release that all of the claims in one of our '292 Patent were determined to be 'unpatentable.' We believe this press release was misleading and incorrect, causing confusion and concern in our marketplace, customer base and potential customers. Ultimately, the USPTO reconfirmed the validity of our patent on January 14, 2016 and we have filed suit against Taser alleging willful patent infringement and including claims of commercial bribery and other unfair trade practices.

"We have had a number of inquiries and sent test and evaluation units of our FirstVU and DVM-800 products in multiple prospective client pilot programs as law enforcement agencies respond to their citizens' calls for increased transparency and accountability for officers and to protect law enforcement officers from unfounded claims. We are optimistic these programs will result in greater 2016 sales as the potential customers evaluate our body-worn and in-car video camera solutions, along with the confirmation of 59 claims on our VuLink patent. We believe there has been a shift in the buying pattern for our customers because our patented VuLink ecosystem has generated significant interest among law enforcement agencies. Agencies are recognizing the importance and value of collecting video evidence of interactions between law enforcement and civilians from multiple perspectives.

"Unfortunately, our gross profit margin decreased to 42% of total revenue in 2015, compared with 57% in 2014. This decline is attributable to a camera cable connector replacement/upgrade implemented in 2015 to our FirstVU HD product that caused us to rework our entire installed base of FirstVU HD units and scrap a portion of the original cable assembly. This upgrade resulted in significant rework and scrap costs that adversely affected our 2015 gross margins. We believe that the FirstVU HD connector upgrade implemented to all deployed units during 2015 will resolve the cable assembly issue and that gross margins should return to more normal levels in 2016. 

"We entered 2016 with a stronger balance sheet and greater liquidity, which should support a significantly higher level of product sales and shipments if anticipated orders are forthcoming," added Ross. "Unrestricted cash and equivalents totaled $6.9 million at December 31, 2015, compared with $3.0 million a year earlier and we are debt-free as of December 31, 2015. We had approximately $18.7 million in net working capital available at the end of 2015, including $3.5 million of accounts receivable and $10.7 million of inventory. We believe inventory levels can be reduced during 2016 to provide additional funds for operations," concluded Ross.

2015 Operating Results

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company's total revenue increased by 15% to approximately $20.0 million, compared with revenue of approximately $17.4 million in the year ended December 31, 2014. The improvement is attributable to the doubling of revenue in 2015 compared to 2014 levels for the body-worn camera (FirstVU HD) line, as well as increased revenues from commercial event recorders. Revenue from the sale of the FirstVU HD was the result of an general increased attention to the benefits of video evidence caused by the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and other cities and in particular the benefits of utilizing body-worn cameras for documenting interactions between police and the public. The Company believes that there has been a shift in buying patterns of its customers to emphasize its law enforcement products because of the transparency and accountability they provide to the general public. It expects that this trend will continue in 2016. Its commercial event recorder business has gained traction in the marketplace during 2015 as a result of the introduction of the Company's web-based commercial fleet driver monitoring and management tool (FleetVU). It expects to see continued revenue growth in its commercial fleet customers during 2016. Revenue growth was hampered to some extent during the second half of 2015 due to the actions of Taser noted above.

International revenue decreased to $148,667 in 2015 from $961,763 in 2014. International revenues have been facing a challenging market chiefly due to unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates in the Company's traditional international markets.

Gross profit declined 16% to $8,349,355 in 2015 from $9,922,793 in 2014. The gross margin decline is primarily attributable to an increase in cost of goods sold as a percentage of revenue during 2015 because of the camera cable connector replacement/upgrade implemented in 2015 to the FirstVU HD product that caused the Company to rework its entire installed base of FirstVU HD's and scrap a portion of the original camera cable assembly. This upgrade contributed to an approximate $2.0 million increase in total scrap costs in 2015 over 2014. The Company believes the FirstVU HD connector upgrade implemented to all deployed units during 2015 will resolve the cable assembly issue and that gross margins should return to more normal levels in 2016. Its goal remains to improve gross margins to 60% of revenue over the longer term based on the expected margins of its newer products, in particular the DVM-800, FirstVU HD and commercial products, if they continue to gain traction in the marketplace. 

Selling, General and Administrative expenses increased approximately 25% to $15,970,826 in 2015, versus $12,811,987 a year earlier. Research and Development costs increased 3% to $2,980,807 in 2015 compared to $2,905,407 in 2014. While the Company introduced the VuLink, VuVault.net, and MicroVU HD products during 2014 and early 2015, it increased its engineering staff of web-based developers as it expanded its offerings to include cloud-based evidence storage and management for its law enforcement customers (VuVault.net) and its web-based commercial fleet driver monitoring and management tool (FleetVU). Selling, advertising and promotional expense rose 19% to $3,965,400, compared with $3,340,764 in 2014, which is commensurate with our 15% increase in revenues and the increase in overall inside customer sales representatives to supplement and monitor our outside direct sales force. Additionally, the Company increased participation in trade shows and media advertising in trade publications and other marketing initiatives designed to help penetrate new commercial and law enforcement markets. Stock-based compensation expense increased 94% to $1,623,033 in 2015 compared to $834,593 in 2014, primarily due to the increased amortization of restricted stock granted to officers and other employees in 2015 because of their grant date fair value. Professional fees and related expenses rose 19% to $1,368,758 last year, compared with $1,153,985 a year earlier, primarily due to higher accounting and litigation expenses. Executive, support and administrative staff payroll expenses increased to $2,941,151 in the most recent year, compared with $2,012,552 a year earlier, due primarily the hiring of additional technical support staff to handle field inquiries and installation matters because of the expansion of the installed customer base. Other SG&A expenses rose 21% to $3,091,677 in the year ended December 31, 2015 from $2,564,686 in 2014, primarily due to increased consulting, contract labor and insurance expenses. The Company utilized consultants to help develop engineering and manufacturing standard processes to achieve various industry certifications and to help design, develop and launch a new corporate website.

The Company reported an operating loss of ($7,621,471) for 2015, compared with an operating loss of ($2,889,194) in the previous year.

Interest income increased to $21,156 in the year ended December 31, 2015, versus $13,660 a year earlier. 

Non-cash charges of $4,063,377 were incurred in 2015 to reflect changes in fair value of the note payable and derivatives associated with the conversion the secured convertible note into common stock and the exercise of associated warrants, along with fair value of the note payable and derivatives. Similar non-cash charges of $5,203,328 were incurred in 2014. All convertible notes have been retired and warrant derivatives have been reduced to only 12,200 shares underlying outstanding warrants at December 31, 2015.

The Company elected to record and account for its secured convertible notes on a fair value basis. Accordingly, it was required to expense the related issuance costs to other expense which totaled $93,845 for the year ended December 31, 2015, a significant decrease from $579,066 in the year prior. The 2015 issuance costs were attributable to proxy costs incurred for its Special Meeting of Shareholders held in February 2015 to approve the issuance of shares above the Nasdaq Share Cap required in connection with the issuance of the secured convertible note issued in August 2014.

Other income totaled $1,878 in 2015, compared with other expense of ($5,589) in 2014.

Interest expense totaled $282,223 in 2015, a 44% decrease from $499,744 in the year ended December 31, 2014 due to reduced indebtedness in 2015. 

The Company reported a 2015 net loss of ($12,037,892), or ($2.77) per share, compared with a prior-year net loss of ($9,163,261), or ($3.54) per share. No income tax provision or benefit was recorded in the either 2015 or 2014. Approximately $4.1 million, or 34% of the net loss in 2015, was attributable to non-cash charges related to warrant derivative liabilities and changes in the fair value of secured convertible notes payable.

The Company expects to continue to maintain a full valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets, including net operating loss carry forwards, until it determines that it can sustain a level of profitability that demonstrates its ability to realize such assets. During 2015, the Company increased its valuation reserve on deferred tax assets by approximately $5.4 million. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had approximately $30.7 million of net operating loss carryforwards and $1.7 million of research and development tax credit carryforwards available to offset future net taxable income. 

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported an adjusted net loss (before depreciation, amortization, net interest expense, change in derivative liabilities, change in the fair value of secured convertible notes, convertible note issuance expenses, and stock-based compensation), of ($5,448,791), or ($1.26) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2015, versus a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of ($1,591,885), or ($0.61) per diluted share, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2014. (Non-GAAP adjusted net income / loss is described in greater detail in a table at the end of this press release).

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

For the three-month period ended December 31, 2015, the Company's total revenue decreased 7% to approximately $5.1 million, compared with revenue of approximately $5.4 million in the fourth quarter of the previous year. It believes its revenues in the fourth quarter 2015 were negatively impacted after Taser caused confusion and concern in the Company's marketplace, customer base and potential customers when Taser stated in its September 2015 press release that all of the claims in the Company's '292 Patent were determined to be "unpatentable" by the USPTO. Ultimately, the USPTO reconfirmed the validity of the '292 Patent in January 2016 and the Company has filed suit against Taser.

Gross profit was $1,563,647 (31% of revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2015, versus $3,211,532 (59% of revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease was attributable to the continuing efforts to upgrade the connectors contained in the camera cable assembly on the FirstVU HD products and the scrap costs associated with this upgrade.

Selling, General and Administrative expenses increased 20% to $4,264,176 in the final quarter of 2015, versus $3,548,365 a year earlier. Research and Development costs increased 5% to $732,944 in the most recent quarter, compared with $700,915 in 2014. Selling, advertising and promotional expenses remained consistent as $1,013,609 was reported in the final quarter of 2015 compared with $1,010,314 in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Stock-based compensation expense rose 112% to $545,548, compared with $257,729 in the year-earlier period due primarily to the increased amortization of restricted stock granted in 2015 to the Company's officers, directors and other employees due to their grant date fair value. General and administrative expense increased 25% to $1,972,075, compared with $1,579,407 in the corresponding period of the previous year.

The Company's operating loss was ($2,700,529) for the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared with an operating loss of ($336,833) in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Interest income increased to $8,583 in the quarter ended December 31, 2015, versus $1,248 in the year-earlier quarter. 

The Company incurred non-cash charges of $422 in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared with charges totaling $396,064 in the year-earlier quarter. Such non-cash charges reflect changes in fair value of the senior convertible notes payable and associated warrant derivatives. All senior convertible notes payable have been converted to common stock as of December 31, 2015. Warrants exercisable to purchase 12,200 common shares remain unexercised at December 31, 2015, which are treated as derivative liabilities.

The Company incurred $13,115 in expenses associated with the issuance of secured convertible notes in the fourth quarter 2014. No such charges were incurred in the fourth quarter 2015 period. 

Other expense of $2,136 was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with none in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Interest expense totaled $1,261 and $154,215 during the quarters ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The decrease in interest expense reflects the payment in full of all subordinated notes and the conversion of all remaining secured convertible notes payable during 2015.

The Company reported a net loss of ($2,693,629), or ($0.53) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared with a net loss of ($901,115), or ($0.30) per share, in the prior-year period. No income tax provision or benefit was recorded in the fourth quarter of either 2015 or 2014. 

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported an adjusted net loss (before, depreciation, amortization, net interest expense, changes in derivative liabilities, change in fair value of secured convertible notes, secured convertible note issuance expenses, and stock-based compensation), of ($2,024,810), or ($0.40) per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2015, versus non-GAAP adjusted net income of $109,682, or $0.04 per share, in the three months ended December 31, 2014.
