AEHR TEST SYSTEMS
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
 
1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCCOUNTING POLICIES
 
    The accompanying financial information has been prepared by Aehr Test Systems, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.
 
    In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the interim periods presented have been prepared on a basis consistent with the May 31, 2020 audited consolidated financial statements and reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations as of and for such periods indicated. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020. Results for the interim periods presented herein are not necessarily indicative of results which may be reported for any other interim period or for the entire fiscal year.
 
    PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Aehr Test Systems and its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company"). All significant intercompany balances have been eliminated in consolidation. For the Company's majority owned subsidiary, Aehr Test Systems Japan K.K., the noncontrolling interest of the portion the Company does not own was reflected on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets in Sharholders' Equity and in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
    ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates are used to account for sales and revenue allowances, the allowance for doubtful accounts, inventory valuations, income taxes, stock-based compensation expenses, and product warranties, among others. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
 
    SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES. The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2020. There have been no significant changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the three months ended August 31, 2020.
 
2. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
 
    Financial Instruments
    In June 2016, the FASB issued an accounting standard update (“ASU”) that requires measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for financial assets held based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. Due to a subsequent ASU in November 2019, the accounting standard will be effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2024 on a modified retrospective basis, and early adoption in fiscal 2021 is permitted. The Company does not expect a material impact of this accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

3. REVENUE
 
Revenue recognition
 
    The Company recognizes revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services by following a five-step process, (1) identify the contract with a customer, (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determine the transaction price, (4) allocate the transaction price, and (5) recognize revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation, as further described below.
 
    Performance obligations include sales of systems, contactors, spare parts, and services, as well as installation and training services included in customer contracts.
 
    A contract’s transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation. In determining the transaction price, the Company evaluates whether the price is subject to refund or adjustment to determine the net consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled. The Company generally does not grant return privileges, except for defective products during the warranty period.
 
    For contracts that contain multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the transaction price to the performance obligations on a relative standalone selling price basis. Standalone selling prices are based on multiple factors including, but not limited to historical discounting trends for products and services and pricing practices in different geographies.
 
    Revenue for systems and spares is recognized at a point in time, which is generally upon shipment or delivery. Revenue from services is recognized over time as services are completed or ratably over the contractual period of generally one year or less.
 
    The Company has elected the practical expedient to not assess whether a contract has a significant financing component as the Company’s standard payment terms are less than one year.
 
Disaggregation of revenue
 
    The following tables show revenues by major product categories. Within each product category, contract terms, conditions and economic factors affecting the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty around revenue recognition and cash flow are substantially similar.
 
    The Company’s revenues by product category are as follows (in thousands):

Contract balances
 
    A receivable is recognized in the period the Company delivers goods or provides services or when the Company’s right to consideration is unconditional. The Company usually does not record contract assets because the Company has an unconditional right to payment upon satisfaction of the performance obligation, and therefore, a receivable is more commonly recorded than a contract asset.
 
 
 
11
 
 
    Contract liabilities include payments received in advance of performance under a contract and are satisfied as the associated revenue is recognized. Contract liabilities are reported on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at the end of each reporting period as a component of deferred revenue. Contract liabilities as of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020 were $406,000 and $192,000, respectively. During the three months ended August 31, 2020, the Company recognized $79,000 of revenues that were included in contract liabilities as of May 31, 2020.
 
Remaining performance obligations
 
    On August 31, 2020, the Company had $128,000 of remaining performance obligations, which were comprised of deferred service contracts and extended warranty contracts not yet delivered. The Company expects to recognize approximately 66% of its remaining performance obligations as revenue in fiscal 2021, and an additional 34% in fiscal 2022 and thereafter. The foregoing excludes the value of other remaining performance obligations as they have original durations of one year or less, and also excludes information about variable consideration allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation.
 
Costs to obtain or fulfill a contract
 
    The Company generally expenses sales commissions when incurred as a component of selling, general and administrative expense as the amortization period is typically less than one year. Additionally, the majority of the Company’s cost of fulfillment as a manufacturer of products is classified as inventory and fixed assets, which are accounted for under the respective guidance for those asset types. Other costs of contract fulfillment are immaterial due to the nature of the Company’s products and their respective manufacturing process.
 
4. EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
    Basic earnings per share is determined using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is determined using the weighted average number of common shares and potential common shares (representing the dilutive effect of stock options, restricted stock units (“RSUs”), and Amended and Restated 2006 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”) shares) outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method.

    For the purpose of computing diluted earnings per share, the weighted average number of potential common shares does not include stock options with an exercise price greater than the average fair value of the Company’s common stock for the period, as the effect would be anti-dilutive. Stock options to purchase 2,594,000 shares of common stock were outstanding as of August 31, 2020, but were not included in the computation of diluted net income per share, because the inclusion of such shares would be anti-dilutive. In the three months ended August 31, 2019, potential common shares were not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per share as the effect would be anti-dilutive. As such, the numerator and the denominator used in computing both basic and diluted net loss per share for these periods are the same. Stock options to purchase 3,434,000 shares of common stock, RSUs for 20,000 shares and ESPP rights to purchase 297,000 ESPP shares were outstanding as of August 31, 2019, but were not included in the computation of diluted net loss per share because the inclusion of such shares would be anti-dilutive.
 
5. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
    The Company’s financial instruments are measured at fair value consistent with authoritative guidance. This authoritative guidance defines fair value, establishes a framework for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities, and disclosures required related to fair value measurements.
 
    The guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy based on inputs to valuation techniques that are used to measure fair value that are either observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability based on market data obtained from independent sources while unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity’s pricing based upon their own market assumptions. The fair value hierarchy consists of the following three levels:
 
Level 1 - instrument valuations are obtained from real-time quotes for transactions in active exchange markets involving identical assets.
 
Level 2 - instrument valuations are obtained from readily-available pricing sources for comparable instruments.
 
Level 3 - instrument valuations are obtained without observable market values and require a high level of judgment to determine the fair value.

    There were no financial liabilities measured at fair value as of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020.
 
    There were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements during the three months ended August 31, 2020.
 
    The carrying amounts of financial instruments including cash, cash equivalents, receivables, accounts payable and certain other accrued liabilities, approximate fair value due to their short maturities.
 
6. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE, NET
 
Accounts receivable represent customer trade receivables. As of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020, there was no allowance for doubtful accounts. Accounts receivable are derived from the sale of products throughout the world to semiconductor manufacturers, semiconductor contract assemblers, electronics manufacturers and burn-in and test service companies. The Company’s allowance for doubtful accounts is based upon historical experience and review of trade receivables by aging category to identify specific customers with known disputes or collection issues. Uncollectible receivables are recorded as bad debt expense when all efforts to collect have been exhausted and recoveries are recognized when they are received.

8. PRODUCT WARRANTIES 
 
    The Company provides for the estimated cost of product warranties at the time revenues are recognized on the products shipped. While the Company engages in extensive product quality programs and processes, including actively monitoring and evaluating the quality of its component suppliers, the Company’s warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates, material usage and service delivery costs incurred in correcting a product failure. Should actual product failure rates, material usage or service delivery costs differ from the Company’s estimates, revisions to the estimated warranty liability would be required.
 
    The standard warranty period is one year for systems and ninety days for parts and service.
 
    The following is a summary of changes in the Company's liability for product warranties during the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 (in thousands):

10. INCOME TAXES
 
    Income taxes have been provided using the liability method whereby deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse or the carryforwards are utilized. Valuation allowances are established when it is determined that it is more likely than not that such assets will not be realized.
 
    Since fiscal 2009, a full valuation allowance was established against all deferred tax assets, as management determined that it is more likely than not that certain deferred tax assets will not be realized.
 
 
15
 
 
The Company accounts for uncertain tax positions consistent with authoritative guidance. The guidance prescribes a “more likely than not” recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The Company does not expect any material change in its unrecognized tax benefits over the next twelve months. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income taxes.
 
    On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) was passed into law. The CARES Act includes several significant business tax provisions including modification to the taxable income limitation for utilization of net operating losses (“NOLs”) incurred in 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the ability to carry back NOLs from those years for a period of up to five years, an increase to the limitation on deductibility of certain business interest expense, bonus depreciation for purchases of qualified improvement property and special deductions on certain corporate charitable contributions. The Company is currently analyzing the impact of these changes and therefore an estimate of the impact to income taxes is not yet available.
 
    On June 29, 2020, the Assembly Bill 85 (AB 85) was signed into law as part of the California 2020 Budget Act, which temporarily suspends the use of California net operating losses and imposes a cap on the amount of business incentive tax credits that companies can utilize against their net income for tax years 2020, 2021, and 2022. The Company analyzed the provisions of AB 85 and determined there was no impact on its provision for income taxes for the current period and will continue to evaluate the impact, if any, AB 85 may have on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.
 
11. LEASES
 
    The Company has only operating leases for real estate including corporate offices, warehouse space and certain equipment. A lease with an initial term of 12 months or less is generally not recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet, unless the arrangement includes an option to purchase the underlying asset, or renew the arrangement that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise (short-term leases). The Company recognizes lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term for short-term leases that the Company does not record on its balance sheet. The Company’s operating leases have remaining lease terms of 1 month to 3 years.
 
    The Company determines whether an arrangement is or contains a lease based on the unique facts and circumstances present at the inception of the arrangement. Operating lease liabilities and their corresponding right-of-use assets are recorded based on the present value of lease payments over the expected lease term. The interest rate implicit in lease contracts is typically not readily determinable.
 
    As such, the Company utilizes the appropriate incremental borrowing rate, which is the rate incurred to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term at an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. Certain adjustments to the right-of-use asset may be required for items such as initial direct costs paid or incentives received.
 
    The weighted-average remaining lease term for the Company’s operating leases was 2.9 years at August 31, 2020 and the weighted-average discount rate was 5.49%.
 
    The Company’s operating lease cost was $186,000 and $183,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

12. BORROWING AND FINANCING ARRANGEMENTS:
 
    On January 16, 2020, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”). Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Company may borrow up to (a) the lesser of (i) the revolving line of $4.0 million or (ii) the amount available under the borrowing base minus (b) the outstanding principal balance of any advances, under a revolving line of credit which is collateralized by all the Company’s assets except intellectual property. The borrowing base is 80% of eligible accounts, as determined by SVB from the Company’s most recent borrowing base statement; provided, however, SVB has the right to decrease the foregoing percentage in its good faith business judgment to mitigate the impact of certain events or conditions, which may adversely affect the collateral or its value. Subject to an event of default, the principal amount outstanding under the revolving line of credit will accrue interest at a floating per annum rate equal to the greater of (a) the prime rate plus an additional percentage of up to 1%, which additional percentage depends on the Company’s adjusted quick ratio, and (b) 4.75%. Interest is payable monthly on the last calendar day of each month and the outstanding principal amount, the unpaid interest and all other obligations are due on the maturity date, which is 364 days from the effective date of January 13, 2020. At August 31, 2020, the Company had not drawn against the credit facility and was in compliance with all covenants related to obligations to meet reporting requirements. The balance available to borrow under the line at August 31, 2020 was $159,000. There are no financial covenants in the agreement.
 
17
 
  
13. LONG-TERM DEBT:
 
    On April 23, 2020, the Company obtained the Paycheck Protection Program Loan (the “PPP Loan”) in the aggregate amount of $1,679,000 from SVB. The PPP Loan was evidenced by a promissory note dated April 23, 2020 (the “Note”) that matures on April 23, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 23, 2020. The PPP Loan proceeds were used for payroll, health care benefits, rent and utilities.
 
    Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payment of payroll costs, covered rent and mortgage obligations, and covered utility payments incurred by the Company. The Company intends to apply for forgiveness of the PPP Loan with respect to these covered expenses. No assurance can be given that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the amount due under the loan in whole or in part.
 
14. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
    Stock-based compensation expense consists of expenses for stock options, RSUs and ESPP purchase rights. Stock-based compensation expense for stock options and ESPP purchase rights is measured at each grant date, based on the fair value of the award using the Black-Scholes option valuation model, and is recognized as expense over the employee’s requisite service period. This model was developed for use in estimating the value of publicly traded options that have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. The Company’s employee stock options have characteristics significantly different from those of publicly traded options. For RSUs, stock-based compensation cost is based on the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the grant date. All of the Company’s stock-based compensation is accounted for as an equity instrument. See Note 11 in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2020 filed on August 28, 2020 for further information regarding the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan”) and the ESPP.
 
    The following table summarizes the stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 (in thousands):

    As of August 31, 2020, and August 31, 2019, there were no stock-based compensation expenses capitalized as part of inventory.
 
    During the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded stock-based compensation expenses related to stock options and RSUs of $245,000 and $150,000, respectively.
 
 
18
 
 
    As of August 31, 2020, the total compensation expense related to unvested stock-based awards under the 2016 Plan, but not yet recognized, was approximately $1,434,000, which is net of estimated forfeitures of $4,000. This expense will be amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average period of approximately 2.9 years.
 
    During the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded stock-based compensation expense related to the ESPP of $25,000 and $49,000, respectively.
 
    As of August 31, 2020, the total compensation expense related to purchase rights under the ESPP but not yet recognized was approximately $34,000. This expense will be amortized on a straight-line basis over a weighted average period of approximately 0.7 years.
 
Valuation Assumptions
 
    Valuation and Amortization Method. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options granted using the Black-Scholes option valuation model and a single option award approach. The fair value under the single option approach is amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service periods of the awards, which is generally the vesting period.
 
    Expected Term. The Company’s expected term represents the period that the Company’s stock-based awards are expected to be outstanding and was determined based on historical experience, giving consideration to the contractual terms of the stock-based awards, vesting schedules and expectations of future employee behavior as evidenced by changes to the terms of its stock-based awards.
 
    Volatility. Volatility is a measure of the amounts by which a financial variable such as stock price has fluctuated (historical volatility) or is expected to fluctuate (expected volatility) during a period. The Company uses the historical volatility for the past four or five years, which matches the expected term of most of the option grants, to estimate expected volatility. Volatility for each of the ESPP’s four time periods of six months, twelve months, eighteen months, and twenty-four months is calculated separately and included in the overall stock-based compensation expense recorded.
 
    Risk-Free Interest Rate. The Company bases the risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes option valuation model on the implied yield in effect at the time of option grant on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with a remaining term equivalent to the expected term of the stock awards including the ESPP.
 
    Fair Value. The fair value of the Company’s stock options granted to employees for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 were estimated using the following weighted average assumptions in the Black-Scholes option valuation model:

    During the three months ended August 31, 2020, RSUs for 161,000 shares were granted to employees, and RSUs for 35,000 shares were granted to non-employee directors, which were immediately fully vested. The market value on the date of the grant of these RSUs was $1.86 per share. During the three months ended August 31, 2020, 3,000 RSUs granted to employees became fully vested. As of August 31, 2020, 166,000 RSUs were unvested which had an intrinsic value of $296,000. During the three months ended August 31, 2019, there were no RSUs granted to employees or non-employee directors. During the three months ended August 31, 2019, 3,000 RSUs granted to employees became fully vested. As of August 31, 2019, 20,000 RSUs were unvested which had an intrinsic value of $26,000.

 16. DISSOLUTION OF AEHR TEST SYSTEMS JAPAN
 
    On July 31, 2020, the Company completed the liquidation of Aehr Test Systems Japan K.K. (“ATS-Japan”), a majority owned subsidiary. Accordingly, the Company deconsolidated ATS-Japan and recognized an aggregate net gain of $2,401,000 for the period ended August 31, 2020. The net gain was mainly due to cumulative translation adjustment reclassified into earnings of $2,186,000 and the residual income tax effect in connection with the cumulative translation adjustment released into income tax benefits of $215,000.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS 
 
    The following discussion of the financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes that appear elsewhere in this report and with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020 and the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto.
 
    In addition to historical information, this report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements in this report, including those made by our management, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. These statements typically may be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases such as "believe," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "should," "planned," "estimated," and "potential," among others and include, but are not limited to, statements concerning when we expect to recognize remaining performance obligations and statements concerning our expectations regarding our operations, business, strategies, prospects, revenues, expenses, costs and resources.

OVERVIEW
 
    We were founded in 1977 to develop and manufacture burn-in and test equipment for the semiconductor industry. Since our inception, we have sold more than 2,500 systems to semiconductor manufacturers, semiconductor contract assemblers and burn-in and test service companies worldwide. Our principal products currently are the FOX full wafer contact parallel test and burn-in system, WaferPak contactors, the DiePak carrier, test fixtures and the Advanced Burn-in and Test System, or ABTS.
 
    Our net sales consist primarily of sales of systems, WaferPak contactors, DiePak carriers, test fixtures, upgrades and spare parts, revenues from service contracts, and engineering development charges. Our selling arrangements may include contractual customer acceptance provisions, which are mostly deemed perfunctory or inconsequential, and installation of the product occurs after shipment and transfer of title.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
 
     Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, assumptions and judgements, including those related to customer programs and incentives, product returns, bad debts, inventories, income taxes, financing operations, warranty obligations, and long-term service contracts. Our estimates are derived from historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Those results form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. For a discussion of the critical accounting policies, see “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020.
 
    There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates during the three months ended August 31, 2020 compared to those discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2020.

THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2020 COMPARED TO THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2019
 
    NET SALES. Net sales decreased to $2.0 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020 from $5.5 million for the three months ended August 31, 2019, a decrease of 63.6%. The decrease in net sales for the three months ended August 31, 2020 was primarily due to the decreases in net sales of both our wafer-level products and Test During Burn-in (TDBI) products. Net sales of our wafer-level products for the three months ended August 31, 2020 were $1.6 million, and decreased approximately $3.3 million from the three months ended August 31, 2019. Net sales of our TDBI products for the three months ended August 31, 2020 were $453,000, and decreased $254,000 from the three months ended August 31, 2019.
 
    GROSS PROFIT. Gross profit decreased to $227,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 from $2.3 million for the three months ended August 31, 2019, a decrease of approximately 90.0%. Gross profit margin decreased to 11.3% for the three months ended August 31, 2020 from 41.0% for the three months ended August 31, 2019. The decrease in gross profit margin was primarily due to increased direct material costs as a percentage of sales resulting in a 5.0% gross profit margin reduction, increased warranty provision, mainly due to adjustments related to preexisting warranties, resulting in a 6.5% gross profit margin reduction, and manufacturing inefficiencies due to a lower level of net sales resulting in a 17.4% gross profit margin reduction.

    SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE. SG&A expenses decreased to $1.5 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020 from $1.8 million for the three months ended August 31, 2019, a decrease of 16.3%. The decrease in SG&A expenses was primarily due to a decrease in employment related expenses.
 
    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. R&D expenses increased to $900,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 from $892,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019, an increase of 0.9%.
 
    INTEREST (EXPENSE) INCOME, NET. Interest expense, net for the three months ended August 31, 2020 was $13,000 compared with interest income, net of $12,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019. The interest expense for the three months ended August 31, 2020 was from the PPP Loan that we obtained on April 23, 2020.
 
    NET GAIN FROM DISSOLUTION OF AEHR TEST SYSTEMS JAPAN. Net gain from dissolution of Aehr Test Systems Japan was $2.2 million for the three months ended August 31, 2020, due to the release of the cumulative translation adjustment in connection with the complete liquidation of Aehr Test Systems Japan subsidiary in July 2020.
 
    OTHER (EXPENSE) INCOME, NET. Other expense, net was $94,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020, compared with other income, net of $10,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019. The change in other (expense) income, net was primarily due to losses or gains realized in connection with the fluctuation in the value of the dollar compared to foreign currencies during the referenced periods.
 
    INCOME TAX BENEFIT (EXPENSE). Income tax benefit was $215,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020, compared with income tax expense of $6,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019. During the three months ended August 31, 2020, the currency translation adjustment balance was released and the residual income tax effect of $215,000 was recorded pursuant to the inter-period allocation rules in connection with the complete liquidation of Aehr Test Systems Japan subsidiary in July 2020.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
    Net cash provided by operating activities was $643,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and net cash used in operating activities was $190,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2019. For the three months ended August 31, 2020, net cash provided by operating activities was primarily the result of net income of $107,000, as adjusted to exclude the effect of net gain from dissolution of Aehr Test Systems Japan of $2.4 million including income tax benefit, and a non-cash charge of stock-based compensation expense of $270,000 and depreciation and amortization of $82,000. Other change in cash from operations primarily resulted from a decrease in accounts receivable of $2.6 million. The decrease in accounts receivable was primarily due to a decrease in sales for the three months ended August 31, 2020 compared with the three months ended May 31, 2020. For the three months ended August 31, 2019, net cash used in operating activities was primarily the result of the net loss of $413,000, as adjusted to exclude the effect of a non-cash charge of stock-based compensation expense of $199,000 and depreciation and amortization of $95,000. Other changes in cash from operations primarily resulted from a decrease in accounts receivable of $1.6 million, partially offset by decreases in customer deposits and deferred revenue, accrued expenses and accounts payable of $1.0 million, $455,000 and $235,000, respectively. The decrease in accounts receivable was primarily due to a decrease in sales for the three months ended August 31, 2019 compared with the three months ended May 31, 2019. The decrease in customer deposits and deferred revenue was primarily due to the decrease in backlog of customer orders with down payments. The decrease in accrued expenses was primarily due to the severance payments to terminated employees impacted by the restructuring plan implemented during fiscal year 2019. The decrease in accounts payable was primarily due to the decrease in inventory purchases for the three months ended August 31, 2019 compared with the three months ended May 31, 2019.
 
    Net cash used in investing activities was $47,000 and $50,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Net cash used in investing activities during the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 was due to purchases of property and equipment.
 
    Net cash provided by financing activities was $190,000 and $62,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Net cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019 was due to proceeds from the issuance of common stock under employee plans.
 
    The effect of fluctuation in exchange rates increased cash by $94,000 and $16,000 for the three months ended August 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The changes were due to the fluctuation in the value of the dollar compared to foreign currencies.
 
    As of August 31, 2020 and May 31, 2020, we had working capital of $11.8 million and $13.8 million, respectively.
 
    We lease our manufacturing and office space under operating leases. We entered into a non-cancelable operating lease agreement for our United States manufacturing and office facilities, which was renewed in February 2018 and expires in July 2023. Under the lease agreement, we are responsible for payments of utilities, taxes and insurance.
 
    From time to time, we evaluate potential acquisitions of businesses, products or technologies that complement our business. If consummated, any such transactions may use a portion of our working capital or require the issuance of equity. We have no present understandings, commitments or agreements with respect to any material acquisitions.
 
 
25
 
 
    We anticipate that the existing cash balance together with income from operations, collections of existing accounts receivable, revenue from our existing backlog of products, the sale of inventory on hand, and deposits and down payments against significant orders will be adequate to meet our liquidity requirements for the next 12 months.
 
OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
    We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements and have not established any special purpose or variable interest entities.
 
OVERVIEW OF CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS
 
    There have been no material changes in the composition, magnitude or other key characteristics of our contractual obligations or other commitments as disclosed in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2020.
 
Item 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISKS
 
    We had no holdings of derivative financial or commodity instruments as of August 31, 2020 or May 31, 2020.
 
    We are exposed to financial market risks, including changes in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. We only invest our short-term excess cash in government-backed securities with maturities of 18 months or less. We do not use any financial instruments for speculative or trading purposes. Fluctuations in interest rates would not have a material effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
    A majority of our revenue and capital spending is transacted in U.S. Dollars. We, however, enter into transactions in other currencies. Since the price is determined at the time a purchase order is accepted, we are exposed to the risks of fluctuations in the foreign currency-U.S. Dollar exchange rates during the lengthy period from purchase order to ultimate payment. This exchange rate risk is partially offset to the extent that our subsidiaries incur expenses payable in their local currency. To date, we have not invested in instruments designed to hedge currency risks. In addition, our subsidiaries typically carry debt or other obligations due to us that may be denominated in either their local currency or U.S. Dollars. Since our subsidiaries’ financial statements are based in their local currency and our condensed consolidated financial statements are based in U.S. Dollars, we and our subsidiaries recognize foreign exchange gains or losses in any period in which the value of the local currency rises or falls in relation to the U.S. Dollar. A 10% decrease in the value of the subsidiaries’ local currency as compared with the U.S. Dollar would not be expected to result in a significant change to our net income or loss. There have been no material changes in our risk exposure since the end of the last fiscal year, nor are any material changes to our risk exposure anticipated.
 
Item 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
    EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES. Our management evaluated, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management as appropriate to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
26
 
  
    CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROLS OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING. There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, that occurred during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
    INHERENT LIMITATIONS OF INTERNAL CONTROLS. Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within us have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving our stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
