|Accounting Policies [Abstract]
Available-for-sale debt securities are recorded at fair value with the net unrealized gains and losses (that are deemed to be temporary) reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss). Realized gains and losses and charges for other-than-temporary impairments are included in determining net income, with related purchase costs based on the first-in, first-out method. The Company evaluates its available-for-sale-investments for possible other-than-temporary impairments by reviewing factors such as the extent to which, and length of time, an investment’s fair value has been below the Company’s cost basis, the issuer’s financial condition, and the Company’s ability and intent to hold the investment for sufficient time for its market value to recover. For impairments that are other-than-temporary, an impairment loss is recognized in earnings equal to the difference between the investment’s cost and its fair value at the balance sheet date of the reporting period for which the assessment is made. The fair value of the investment then becomes the new amortized cost basis of the investment and it is not adjusted for subsequent recoveries in fair value.
The following is a summary of the unrealized gains, losses, and fair value by investment type as of June 30, 2021:
|FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION
FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION
The Company’s reporting currency is the United States dollar. The functional currency of certain subsidiaries is the Euro. Assets and liabilities are translated based on the exchange rates at the balance sheet date (1.1886) as of June 30, 2021, while expense accounts are translated at the weighted average exchange rate for the period (1.2097) for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Equity accounts are translated at historical exchange rates. The resulting translation adjustments are recognized in stockholders’ equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income. Comprehensive income (loss) is defined as the change in equity of an entity from all sources other than investments by owners or distributions to owners and includes foreign currency translation adjustments as described above.
The Company recognizes revenue primarily from five different types of contracts:

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES – CONTINUED
REVENUE RECOGNITION - CONTINUED
The timing of the Company’s revenue recognition may differ from the timing of payment by its customers. A receivable is recorded when revenue is recognized prior to payment and the Company has an unconditional right to payment. Alternatively, when payment precedes the provision of the related goods or services, the Company records deferred revenue until the performance obligations are satisfied.
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had $1,210,080 related to contract liabilities where performance obligations have not yet been satisfied, which has been included within deferred revenue on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2021. The Company expects to satisfy its remaining performance obligations for network fees and warranty revenue and recognize the revenue within the next twelve months.
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recognized $118,801 and $246,729, respectively, of revenues related to network fees and warranty contracts, which were included in deferred revenues as of December 31, 2020. During the six months ended June 30, 2021, there was no revenue recognized from performance obligations satisfied (or partially satisfied) in previous periods.
Grants and rebates which are not within the scope of ASC 606, pertaining to revenues and periodic expenses are recognized as income when the related revenue and/or periodic expense are recorded. Grants and rebates related to EV charging stations and their installation are deferred and amortized in a manner consistent with the related depreciation expense of the related asset over the useful life of the charging station. During the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized $74,067 and $3,912, respectively, related to grant and rebate revenue. During the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized $224,302 and $8,491, respectively, related to grant and rebate revenue. At June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there was $69,792 and $70,356, respectively, of deferred grant and rebate revenue to be amortized.
As of June 30, 2021, a significant customer represented 10% of total accounts receivable. Another significant customer represented 23% of total accounts receivable.
During the six months ended June 30, 2021, sales to a significant customer represented 12% of total revenue. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, revenues from one significant customer represented 30% and 45%, respectively, of total revenues. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, revenues from another significant customer represented 11% and 10%, respectively, of total revenues.
|GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS
GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS
Goodwill is the excess of consideration paid for an acquired entity over the amounts assigned to assets acquired, including other identifiable intangible assets, and liabilities assumed in a business combination. To determine the amount of goodwill resulting from a business combination, the Company performs an assessment to determine the acquisition date fair value of the acquired company’s tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities.
Goodwill is required to be evaluated for impairment on an annual basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the asset may be impaired. An entity has the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. These qualitative factors include: macroeconomic and industry conditions, cost factors, overall financial performance and other relevant entity-specific events. If the entity determines that this threshold is met, then the Company may apply a one-step quantitative test and record the amount of goodwill impairment as the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying amount over its fair value, not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. The Company determines fair value through multiple valuation techniques and weights the results accordingly. The Company is required to make certain subjective and complex judgments in assessing whether an event of impairment of goodwill has occurred, including assumptions and estimates used to determine the fair value of its reporting units. The Company has elected to perform its annual goodwill impairment review on November 1 of each year.
As of June 30, 2021, there were no indicators, events or changes in circumstances that would indicate goodwill was impaired during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.
Identifiable intangible assets primarily include trade name, customer relationships, favorable leases, internally developed technology, capitalized engineering costs and non-compete agreements. Amortizable intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives and reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the assets may be impaired. If an indicator of impairment exists, the Company will compare the estimated future cash flows of the asset, on an undiscounted basis, to the carrying value of the asset. If the undiscounted cash flows exceed the carrying value, no impairment is indicated. If the undiscounted cash flows do not exceed the carrying value, then impairment, if any, is measured as the difference between fair value and carrying value, with fair value typically based on a discounted cash flow model. There were no indicators, events or changes in circumstances that would indicate intangible assets were impaired during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.
|NET LOSS PER COMMON SHARE
Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the common share equivalents had been issued (computed using the treasury stock or if converted method), if dilutive.
|RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes,” which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. ASU 2019-12 is effective for the Company beginning in fiscal 2021. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
|RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
On May 3, 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued ASU 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options. This new standard provides clarification and reduces diversity in an issuer’s accounting for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options (such as warrants) that remain equity classified after modification or exchange. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Issuers should apply the new standard prospectively to modifications or exchanges occurring after the effective date of the new standard. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. If an issuer elects to early adopt the new standard in an interim period, the guidance should be applied as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. The Company is evaluating this new standard and its impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosure.
