Revenue Recognition


The Company recognizes revenue on all contracts with a planned manufacturing process in excess of four weeks (which approximates 575 direct labor hours) using the percentage-of-completion method.  The majority of the Company's revenue is recognized under this methodology.  The Company has established the systems and procedures essential to developing the estimates required to account for contracts using the percentage-of-completion method.  The percentage-of-completion method is determined by comparing actual labor incurred to a specific date to management's estimate of the total labor to be incurred on each contract or completion of operational milestones assigned to each contract.  Contracts in progress are reviewed monthly by management, and sales and earnings are adjusted in current accounting periods based on revisions in the contract value and estimated costs at completion.  Losses on contracts are recognized immediately when evident to management.

Revenue on contracts not accounted for using the percentage-of-completion method is recognized utilizing the completed contract method.  The majority of the Company's contracts (as opposed to revenue) have a planned manufacturing process of less than four weeks and the results reported under this method do not vary materially from the percentage-of-completion method.  The Company recognizes revenue and all related costs on these contracts upon substantial completion or shipment to the customer.  Substantial completion is consistently defined as at least 95% complete with regard to direct labor hours.  Customer acceptance is generally required throughout the construction process and the Company has no further material obligations under its contracts after the revenue is recognized.

Receivables billed but not paid under retainage provisions in the Company’s customer contracts were $1,141 and $971 at December 31, 2017 and March 31, 2017, respectively.
