5.                                      Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when the following basic revenue recognition criteria have been met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.  Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgments regarding the fixed nature of the price to the buyer charged for products delivered or services rendered and collectability of the sales price. The Company assesses credit worthiness of customers based upon prior history with the customer and assessment of financial condition. The Company’s shipping terms are customarily Free On Board (“FOB”) shipping point. The Company records revenue at the time of shipment if all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.  During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company deferred $277,000 of revenue related to shipments to its distributor in Italy, Artech because not all revenue recognition criteria were met.  The Company expects this revenue to be recognized in 2012.
