For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company had a net operating loss carryforward offset by a valuation allowance and, accordingly, no current provision for income taxes has been recorded. At June 30, 2016, the Company’s net operating loss carryforward was approximately $15.9 million and a deferred tax asset of $500,000 has been recorded due to sufficient evidence available to support the realization of certain tax assets in future years. Our deferred tax asset primarily related to net operating losses and a valuation allowance has been established due to the uncertainty of the utilization of all of these assets in future periods. The net operating loss carryforward will begin to expire in 2030.


Section 382 of the Internal Code allows post-change corporations to use pre-change net operating losses, but limit the amount of losses that may be used annually to a percentage of the entity value of the corporation at the date of the ownership change. The applicable percentage is the federal long-term tax-exempt rate for the month during which the change in ownership occurs.
