PART III — NARRATIVE

 

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

 

Tangoe, Inc. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the “2016 Form 10-K”) within the prescribed time period for the following reasons.

 

As reported in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 7, 2016, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), upon the recommendation of the Audit Committee of the Board (the “Audit Committee”), determined that the Company will restate its financial statements for the years 2013 and 2014, all quarters therein, and the first three quarters of 2015.  The Company has concluded that it made errors in recognizing revenue and is revising its historical financial statements and revenue recognition policies for several categories of revenue.  In addition, the Company expects to make adjustments to certain non-revenue items in its historical financial statements consistent with its correction of revenue recognition errors, and to make other immaterial adjustments, including with respect to the reversal of certain stock-based compensation expense.

 

Because the Company is in the process of restating its financial statements as described above, the Company has not been able to complete the financial statements required to be included in the 2016 Form 10-K and, accordingly, is unable to file the 2016 Form 10-K within the prescribed time period.  The Company has completed its internal review of the financial statements for the periods being restated and has prepared unaudited financial statements for these periods.  In addition, the Company has completed its closing procedures and prepared interim financial statements for its quarters ending March 31, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2016.  It is currently completing its closing procedures for its quarter ending December 31, 2016 and preparing financial statements for the full year 2016.  The Company is developing a plan for the completion of an audit by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm of the restated and 2016 year-end financial statements and a review of applicable quarterly periods.  Presently, the Company is unable to estimate a date by which all of the above procedures, and the audit or review of its financial statements, as applicable, by its independent registered public accounting firm, will be completed.

 

The Company will file the 2016 Form 10-K and the financial statements for prior periods following completion of this audit and review by its independent registered public accounting firm.  Although the Company cannot at this time estimate when it will complete the restatement and file its restated financial statements and the 2016 Form 10-K, it is diligently pursuing completion of the restatement and intends to file the 2016 Form 10-K as soon as reasonably practicable.

x  Yes     o  No

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

 

 

 

In the Company’s press release announcing the restatement on March 7, 2016, the Company estimated that at least $17.1 million of previously recognized revenue would be affected, comprised of previously recognized revenue of at least $3.4 million for 2013, $9.4 million for 2014 and $4.3 million for the first three quarters of 2015.  In the Company’s Notification of Late Filing of Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on November 10, 2016 (the “November 2016 12b-25”), the Company disclosed that, subject to any items that might come to light during the ongoing audit of the Company’s revised financial statements for the restatement periods or the ongoing preparation of interim financial statements for periods in 2016, the Company had completed its review for all periods in question and estimated that the aggregate net revenue reduction for the restatement periods would be approximately $30.5 million and that operating income would be adjusted substantially in line with the revenue reductions.  Since the filing of the November 2016 12b-25, the Company has revised its estimates of the aggregate net revenue and net income reductions for the restatement periods as a result of determinations made in connection with its further review of its financial statements for the restatement periods and the preparation of financial statements for periods in 2016.  The Company now estimates that the aggregate net revenue reduction for the restatement periods will be approximately $30.2 million (as compared to a revenue reduction of approximately $30.5 million reported in the November 2016 12b-25) and that operating income will be adjusted substantially in line with the revenue reductions, resulting in an aggregate pre-tax net income reduction for the restatement periods of approximately $32.0 million (as compared to a pre-tax net income reduction of approximately $31.0 million reported in the November 2016 12b-25).

 

 

 

The table below details the expected net reductions to revenue and pre-tax net income by period:

Of this net revenue reduction, approximately $15.8 million or 52% represents a permanent reduction in revenue and the balance of $14.4 million or 48% results from timing issues where the affected revenue is expected to be recognized in periods subsequent to the restatement periods.  The aggregate net revenue reduction of approximately $30.2 million is comprised of approximately $19.1 million of recurring technology and services revenue and approximately $11.1 million of strategic consulting and other revenue.

 

The Company’s cash balance as of December 31, 2016 was $9.6 million, after payment in the year ended December 31, 2016 of approximately $16.4 million in severance costs and one-time fees incurred in connection with its investigation and restatement efforts, and the Company’s outstanding indebtedness as of December 31, 2016 was approximately $11.8 million, primarily consisting of vendor financing of hardware and product platform software and remaining deferred purchase price obligations with respect to the Company’s acquisition of the Vodafone TEM business.  The Company’s cash balance as of March 15, 2017 was $15.2 million, and the Company’s outstanding indebtedness as of March 15, 2017 was approximately $9.8 million, primarily consisting of the same components as the Company’s outstanding indebtedness as of December 31, 2016.

 

Forward-looking statements

 

Except for statements of historical fact, the matters discussed in this Form 12b-25 are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the applicable securities laws and regulations. The words “estimates”, “expects” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the Company’s intent to restate its prior financial statements and the estimated adjustments of the restated financials involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those stated here. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the risk that additional information may arise from the completion of an audit of the Company’s financial statements or from the preparation of interim financial statements for periods in 2016 or 2017 and financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016, the risk that the process of preparing and auditing the restated financial statements or other subsequent events would require the Company to make additional adjustments and the time and effort required to complete the restatement of its financial statements, as well as other risks described more fully in the Company’s filings with the SEC. Forward-looking statements reflect management’s analysis as of the date hereof. The Company does not undertake to revise these statements to reflect subsequent developments.
