NOTE 14 – INCOME TAXES
The Company had a net deferred tax asset of $35.9 million as of December 31, 2022, including a tax benefit from approximately $79 million of net operating loss carry-forwards of $27.5 million. A valuation allowance of $35.9 million was provided against this asset resulting in deferred assets, net of valuation allowance of $0.
Airobotics Ltd. had a tax benefit of approximately $23.1 million as of December 31, 2022, resulting from Israeli tax loss carry-forwards of $110.0 million. These losses are available to offset future profits of Airobotics Ltd. As of the acquisition date of January 23, 2023, the Company estimated that Airobotics had a deferred tax liability of $1.4 million resulting from the acquisition accounting of amortizable intangibles assets. This liability together with a valuation allowance of $21.7 million results in deferred assets, net of valuation allowance of $0, relating to Airobotics.
In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, including the net operating loss carry forwards, the Company assesses the positive and negative evidence to estimate if sufficient future taxable income will be generated to utilize its existing deferred tax assets. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the period when those temporary differences become deductible. Based on its assessment, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets since their future utilization remains uncertain at this time.
In accordance with Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, the usage of the Company’s net operating loss carry forwards could be limited in the event a change of control has occurred. As of December 31, 2021, the Company completed an analysis and determined that there were multiple ownership changes. Provided sufficient taxable income is generated the annual base limitation plus increased limitation calculated pursuant to IRS Notice 2003-65 will allow the Company to utilize all existing losses within the carryover periods.
As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, management does not believe the Company has any material uncertain tax positions that would require it to measure and reflect the potential lack of sustainability of a position on audit in its financial statements. The Company will continue to evaluate its uncertain tax positions in future periods to determine if measurement and recognition in its financial statements is necessary. The Company does not believe there will be any material changes in its unrecognized tax positions over the next year.
