NOTE A – SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES

A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements follows.

General

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Telkonet, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with Rule S-X of the “SEC” and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  However, the results from operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2010, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2010.  The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated December 31, 2009 financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

Business and Basis of Presentation

Telkonet, Inc., formed in 1999 and incorporated under the laws of the state of Utah, has evolved into a Clean Technology company that develops, manufactures and sells proprietary energy efficiency and SmartGrid networking technology. Prior to January 1, 2007, the Company was primarily engaged in the business of developing, producing and marketing proprietary equipment enabling the transmission of voice and data communications over a building’s internal electrical wiring.

In January 2006, following the acquisition of Microwave Satellite Technologies, Inc. (MST), the Company began offering complete sales, installation, and service of VSAT and business television networks, and became a full-service national Internet Service Provider (ISP). In 2009, the Company completed the deconsolidation of MST by reducing its ownership percentage and board membership in MST’s parent company, MSTI Holdings, Inc.  Financial statements and accompanying notes included in this report include disclosure of the results of operations for MST, for all periods presented, as discontinued operations.  

In March 2007, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Smart Systems International (SSI), a leading provider of energy management products and solutions to customers in the United States and Canada.

In March 2007, the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding membership units of EthoStream, LLC, a network solutions integration company that offers installation, sales and service to the hospitality industry. The EthoStream acquisition enabled Telkonet to provide installation and support for PLC products and third party applications to customers across North America.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Telkonet Communications, Inc., and EthoStream, LLC. Significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Going Concern

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. However, the Company has reported a net loss from continuing operations of $(2,370,657) for the nine months period ended September 30, 2010, accumulated deficit of $(116,112,138) and total current liabilities in excess of current assets of $(3,753,298) as of September 30, 2010.
   
The Company believes that anticipated revenues from operations will be insufficient to satisfy its ongoing capital requirements for at least the next 12 months.  If the Company’s financial resources from operations are insufficient, the Company will require additional financing in order to execute its operating plan and continue as a going concern. The Company cannot predict whether this additional financing will be in the form of equity or debt, or be in another form. The Company may not be able to obtain the necessary additional capital on a timely basis, on acceptable terms, or at all.  In any of these events, the Company may be unable to implement its current plans for expansion, repay its debt obligations as they become due, or respond to competitive pressures, any of which circumstances would have a material adverse effect on its business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

Management intends to review the options for raising capital including, but not limited to, through asset-based financing, private placements, and/or disposition.  Management believes that with this financing, the Company will be able to generate additional revenues that will allow the Company to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in obtaining additional funding.

Concentrations of Credit Risk

Financial instruments and related items, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of cash, cash equivalents and trade receivables. The Company places its cash and temporary cash investments with credit quality institutions. At times, such investments may be in excess of the FDIC insurance limit.

The allowance for doubtful accounts was $175,000 and $175,000 at September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, respectively. Management identifies a delinquent customer based upon the delinquent payment status of an outstanding invoice, generally greater than 30 days past the due date.  The delinquent account designation does not trigger an accounting transaction until such time as the account is deemed uncollectible. The allowance for doubtful accounts is determined by examining the reserve history and any outstanding invoices that are over 30 days past due as of the end of the reporting period.  Accounts are deemed uncollectible on a case-by-case basis, at management’s discretion based upon an examination of the communication with the delinquent customer and payment history.  Typically, accounts are only escalated to “uncollectible” status after multiple attempts have been made to communicate with the customer.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

In January 2008, we adopted the provisions under FASB for Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value for accounting purposes, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure requirements regarding fair value measurements.  Our adoption of these provisions did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.  Fair value is defined as an exit price, which is the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid upon transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.  The degree of judgment utilized in measuring the fair value of assets and liabilities generally correlates to the level of pricing observability.  Financial assets and liabilities with readily available, actively quoted prices or for which fair value can be measured from actively quoted prices in active markets generally have more pricing observability and require less judgment in measuring fair value.  Conversely, financial assets and liabilities that are rarely traded or not quoted have less price observability and are generally measured at fair value using valuation models that require more judgment.  These valuation techniques involve some level of management estimation and judgment, the degree of which is dependent on the price transparency of the asset, liability or market and the nature of the asset or liability.  We have categorized our financial assets and liabilities that are recurring, at fair value into a three-level hierarchy in accordance with these provisions.

Goodwill and Other Intangibles

Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of businesses acquired over fair value or net identifiable assets at the date of acquisition.  Goodwill is subject to a periodic impairment assessment by applying a fair value test based upon a two-step method.  The first step of the process compares the fair value of the reporting unit with the carrying value of the reporting unit, including any goodwill.  We utilize a discounted cash flow valuation methodology to determine the fair value of the reporting unit.  If the fair value of the reporting unit exceeds the carrying amount of the reporting unit, goodwill is deemed not to be impaired in which case the second step in the process is unnecessary.  If the carrying amount exceeds fair value, we perform the second step to measure the amount of impairment loss.  Any impairment loss is measured by comparing the implied fair value of goodwill with the carrying amount of goodwill at the reporting unit, with the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value recognized as an impairment loss.

Long-Lived Assets

We review long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable in accordance with ASC 360-10 (formerly Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets). Recoverability is measured by comparison of the carrying amount to the future net cash flows which the assets are expected to generate.  If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the projected discounted future cash flows arising from the asset using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent to our current business model.

Investments

Telkonet maintained investments in two publicly-traded companies during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.  The Company classified these securities as available for sale.  Such securities are carried at fair market value.  Unrealized gains and losses on these securities, if any, are reported as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), which is a separate component of stockholders’ equity.  Sale of one investment resulted in a gain of $32,750 recorded for the period ended September 30, 2009.  Realized gains and losses and declines in value judged to be other than temporary on securities available for sale, if any, are included in operations.   Realized losses of $397,024 were recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, of which, a $29,371 loss was recorded in February 2009 for the sale of the Company’s investment in Multiband, and a $367,653 loss was recorded in September 2009 for the write-off of the Company’s remaining investment in Geeks on Call America, Inc.

Net Income (Loss) per Common Share
 
The Company computes earnings per share under Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 260-10, Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260-10”).  Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock.  Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common and common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period. There is no effect on diluted loss per share since the common stock equivalents are anti-dilutive. Dilutive common stock equivalents consist of shares issuable upon conversion of convertible notes and the exercise of the Company's stock options and warrants.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures.  Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Revenue Recognition

For revenue from product sales, we recognize revenue in accordance with FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification, or ASC, 605-10, and ASC Topic 13 guidelines that require that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and 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 selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts.  Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded.  We defer any revenue for which the product has not been delivered or is subject to refund until such time that we and the customer jointly determine that the product has been delivered or no refund will be required.  The guidelines also address the accounting for arrangements that may involve the delivery or performance of multiple products, services and/or rights to use assets.

Revenue from sales-type leases for EthoStream products is recognized at the time of lessee acceptance, which follows installation. The Company recognizes revenue from sales-type leases at the net present value of future lease payments. Revenue from operating leases is recognized ratably over the lease period.

Stock Based Compensation

We account for our stock based awards in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 718-10, Compensation (“ASC 718-10”), which requires a fair value measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to our employees and directors, including employee stock options and restricted stock awards. We estimate the fair value of stock options granted using the Black-Scholes valuation model. This model requires us to make estimates and assumptions including, among other things, estimates regarding the length of time an employee will retain vested stock options before exercising them, the estimated volatility of our common stock price and the number of options that will be forfeited prior to vesting. The fair value is then amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service periods of the awards, which is generally the vesting period. Changes in these estimates and assumptions can materially affect the determination of the fair value of stock-based compensation and consequently, the related amount recognized in our consolidated statements of operations.
 
The expected term of the options represents the estimated period of time until exercise and is based on historical experience of similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms, vesting schedules and expectations of future employee behavior. For 2010 and prior years, expected stock price volatility is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock for the related vesting periods.
 
Stock-based compensation expense in connection with options granted to employees for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $111,258 and $243,366, respectively.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made in prior year's financial statements to conform to classifications used in the current year.

NOTE B – NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
ASU No. 2010-11 was issued in March 2010, and clarifies that the transfer of credit risk that is only in the form of subordination of one financial instrument to another is an embedded derivative feature that should not be subject to potential bifurcation and separate accounting.  This ASU will be effective for the first fiscal quarter beginning after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-11 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

In April 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2010-12. “Income Taxes” (Topic 740). In April 2010, the FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) issued Accounting Standards Update 2010-12 (ASU 2010-12), Income Taxes (Topic 740): Accounting for Certain Tax Effects of the 2010 Health Care Reform Acts. After consultation with the FASB, the SEC stated that it “would not object to a registrant incorporating the effects of the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 when accounting for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-12 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

ASU No. 2010-13 was issued in April 2010, and will clarify the classification of an employee share based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which the underlying security trades. This ASU will be effective for the first fiscal quarter beginning after December 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-13 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

In April 2010, the FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) issued Accounting Standards Update 2010-17 (ASU 2010-17), Revenue Recognition-Milestone Method (Topic 605): Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition. The amendments in this Update are effective on a prospective basis for milestones achieved in fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning on or after June 15, 2010. Early adoption is permitted. If a vendor elects early adoption and the period of adoption is not the beginning of the entity’s fiscal year, the entity should apply the amendments retrospectively from the beginning of the year of adoption. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-17 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

There were various other updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or application to specific industries and are not expected to a have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

The Company does not amortize goodwill. The Company recorded goodwill in the amount of $14,670,455 as a result of the acquisitions of EthoStream and SSI during the year ended December 31, 2007. The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment based on the fair value of the operating business units to which this goodwill relates at least once a year. The Company generally determines the fair value of a reporting unit using a combination of the income approach, which is based on the present value of estimated future cash flows, and the market approach, which compares the business unit's multiples to its competitors. At December 31, 2009 and 2008, the Company had determined that a portion of the value of EthoStream’s goodwill has been impaired based upon management’s assessment of operating results and forecasted discounted cash flow and has written off a total of $3,000,000 of its value.

In February 2008, the Company entered into a factoring agreement to sell, without recourse, certain receivables to an unrelated third party financial institution in an effort to accelerate cash flow.  Under the terms of the factoring agreement the maximum amount of outstanding receivables at any one time is $2.5 million.  Proceeds on the transfer reflect the face value of the account less a discount.  The discount is recorded as interest expense in the Consolidated Statement of Operations in the period of the sale.  Net funds received reduced accounts receivable outstanding while increasing cash.  Fees paid pursuant to this arrangement amounted to $146,356 and $156,582 for the period ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.  The amounts borrowed are collateralized by the outstanding accounts receivable, and are reflected as a reduction to accounts receivable in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The Company did not renew the factoring agreement upon its expiration in September 2010.

NOTE E – MARKETABLE SECURITIES

Multiband Corporation

In connection with a payment of $75,000 of accounts receivable, the company received 30,000 shares of common stock of Multiband Corporation, a Minnesota-based communication services provider to multiple dwelling units.  The Company classifies this security as available for sale, and is carried at fair market value.  The Company sold its remaining investment in Multiband and recorded a loss of $29,371 during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

Geeks on Call America, Inc

As of September 30, 2009, the Company maintained an investment in a publicly traded company which was approximately 18% of the outstanding shares of common stock of Geeks on Call Holdings, Inc. (“GOCA”), a provider of on-site computer services to residential and commercial customers.  As of December 31, 2008, the Company determined that a significant portion of this investment was permanently impaired and wrote-off $4,098,514.  Management has determined that the entire investment in GOCA is impaired and the remaining value of $367,653 has been written off during the period ended September 30, 2009.

NOTE F – LINE OF CREDIT

In September 2008, the Company entered into a two-year line of credit facility with a third party financial institution.  The line of credit has an aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 and is secured by the Company’s inventory.  The outstanding principal balance bears interest at the greater of (i) the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus nine (9%) percent per annum, adjusted on the date of any change in such prime or base rate, or (ii) Sixteen percent (16%).  Interest, computed on a 365/360 simple interest basis, and fees on the credit facility are payable monthly in arrears on the last day of each month and continuing on the last day of each month until the maturity date.  The Company may prepay amounts outstanding under the credit facility in whole or in part at any time.  In the event of such prepayment, the lender will be entitled to receive a prepayment fee of four percent (4.0%) of the highest aggregate loan commitment amount if prepayment occurs before the end of the first year and three percent (3.0%) if prepayment occurs thereafter.  The outstanding borrowing under the agreement at September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 was $0 and $387,000, respectively.  The Company has incurred interest expense of $48,546 and $103,881 related to the line of credit for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The Prime Rate was 3.25% at September 30, 2010. The Company did not renew the line of credit upon its expiration on September 9, 2010.

NOTE H – REDEEMABLE PREFERRED STOCK

Series A

The Company has designated 215 shares of preferred stock as Series A Preferred Stock (“Series A”). Each share of Series A shall be convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, at any time, into shares of our Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $0.363 per share, subject to adjustments for anti-dilution provisions.  In the event of a change of control (as defined in the purchase agreement with respect to the Series A), or at the holder’s option, on November 19, 2014 and for a period of 180 days thereafter, provided that at least fifty percent (50%) of the shares of Series A issued on the Series A Original Issue Date remain outstanding as of November 19, 2014, and the holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series A provide written notice requesting redemption of all shares of Series A, we are required to redeem the Series A for the purchase price plus any accrued but unpaid dividends. The Series A accrues dividends at an annual rate of 8% of the original purchase price, and shall be payable only when, as, and if declared by our Board of Directors.

On November 16, 2009, the Company sold 215 shares of Series A with attached warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,628,800 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.33 per share.  The Series A shares were sold at a price per share of $5,000 and each Series A share is convertible into approximately 13,774 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.363 per share. The Company received $1,075,000 from the sale of the Series A shares.  Since the Series A shares may ultimately be redeemable at the option of the holder, the carrying value of the Series A shares, net of discount and accumulated dividends, has been classified as temporary equity on the balance sheet at September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009.

In accordance with ASC 470 Topic “Debt, a portion of the proceeds were allocated to the warrants based on their relative fair value, which totaled $287,106 using the Black Scholes option pricing model. Further, the Company attributed a beneficial conversion feature of $70,922 to the Series A shares based upon the difference between the effective conversion price of those shares and the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes model are as follows:  (1) dividend yield of 0%; (2) expected volatility of 123%, (3) weighted average risk-free interest rate of 2.2%, (4) expected life of 5 years, and (5) estimated fair value of Telkonet common stock of $0.24 per share. The expected term of the warrants represents the estimated period of time until exercise and is based on historical experience of similar awards and giving consideration to the contractual terms. The amounts attributable to the warrants and beneficial conversion feature, aggregating $358,028, have been recorded as a discount and deducted from the face value of the Series A shares. Since the Series A is classified as temporary equity, the discount will be amortized over the period from issuance to November 19, 2014 (the initial redemption date) as a charge to additional paid-in capital (since there is a deficit in retained earnings).

The charge to additional paid in capital for amortization of Series A discount and costs for the period ended September 30, 2010 was $53,703.  There was no amortization of discounts for Series A shares for the period ended September 30, 2009.

For the three months ended September 30, 2010 we have accrued dividends for Series A shares in the amount of $21,685 and cumulative accrued dividends of $74,247. The accrued dividends have been charged to additional paid-in capital (since there is a deficit in retained earnings) and the net unpaid accrued dividends been added to the carrying value of the Series A shares. There were no accrued dividends for Series A shares for the period ended September 30, 2009.

Series B

The Company has designated 267 shares of preferred stock as Series B Preferred Stock (“Series B”). Each share of Series B shall be convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, at any time, into shares of our Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $0.13 per share, subject to adjustments for anti-dilution provisions.  In the event of a change of control (as defined in the purchase agreement with respect to the Series B), or at the holder’s option, on August 4, 2015 and for a period of 180 days thereafter, provided that at least fifty percent (50%) of the shares of Series B issued on the Series B Original Issue Date remain outstanding as of August 4, 2015, and the holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series B provide written notice requesting redemption of all shares of Series B, we are required to redeem the Series B for the purchase price plus any accrued but unpaid dividends. The Series B accrues dividends at an annual rate of 8% of the original purchase price, and shall be payable only when, as, and if declared by our Board of Directors.

On August 4, 2010, the Company sold 267 shares of Series B with attached warrants to purchase an aggregate of 10,269,219 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.13 per share.  The Series B shares were sold at a price per share of $5,000 and each Series B share is convertible into approximately 38,461 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.13 per share. The Company received $1,335,000 from the sale of the Series B shares.  Since the Series B shares may ultimately be redeemable at the option of the holder, the carrying value of the Series B shares, net of discount and accumulated dividends, has been classified as temporary equity on the balance sheet at September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009.

In accordance with ASC 470 Topic “Debt, a portion of the proceeds were allocated to the warrants based on their relative fair value, which totaled $394,350 using the Black Scholes option pricing model. Further, the Company attributed a beneficial conversion feature of $394,350 to the Series B shares based upon the difference between the effective conversion price of those shares and the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes model are as follows:  (1) dividend yield of 0%; (2) expected volatility of 123%, (3) weighted average risk-free interest rate of 1.76%, (4) expected life of 5 years, and (5) estimated fair value of Telkonet common stock of $0.109 per share. The expected term of the warrants represents the estimated period of time until exercise and is based on historical experience of similar awards and giving consideration to the contractual terms. The amounts attributable to the warrants and beneficial conversion feature, aggregating $788,700, have been recorded as a discount and deducted from the face value of the Series B shares.

For the three months ended September 30, 2010 we have accrued dividends for Series B in the amount of $16,103 and cumulative accrued dividends of $16,103.

The weighted-average fair value of stock options granted to employees during the period ended 2009 and the weighted-average significant assumptions used to determine those fair values, using a Black-Scholes option pricing model are as follows:

Expected option life (in years)

Expected forfeiture rate

Fair value per share of options granted
   
$

The expected life of awards granted represents the period of time that they are expected to be outstanding.  We determine the expected life based on historical experience with similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms, vesting schedules, exercise patterns and pre-vesting and post-vesting forfeitures.  We estimate the volatility of our common stock based on the calculated historical volatility of our own common stock using the trailing 24 months of share price data prior to the date of the award.  We base the risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model on the implied yield currently available on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with an equivalent remaining term equal to the expected life of the award.  We have not paid any cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.  Consequently, we use an expected dividend yield of zero in the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model. We use historical data to estimate pre-vesting option forfeitures and record share-based compensation for those awards that are expected to vest. In accordance with ASC 718-10, we adjust share-based compensation for changes to the estimate of expected equity award forfeitures based on actual forfeiture experience.
 
There were no options exercised during the period ended September 30, 2010 or 2009.  

Total stock-based compensation expense in connection with options granted to employees recognized in the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of earnings for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $23,077 and $111,258, and $65,746 and $243,366, respectively. Additionally, the aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding and unvested as of September 30, 2010 is $0.

Rental expenses charged to operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 are $484,241 and $329,083, respectively.

On May 3, 2010, the Company vacated the 11,626 square feet of space under sublease from Tellabs Operations, Inc. that formerly housed our corporate offices. The sublease is due to expire on November 29, 2010. Our landlord has filed a claim for unpaid rent and was granted a judgment in March 2010. Pursuant to that judgment, we received a notice of eviction from our landlord for the unpaid rent. We sought to extend the date for eviction but were unable to negotiate a payment plan acceptable to the landlord and voluntarily vacated the space.  The Company has accrued lease costs of $37,976 at September 30, 2010 and the remaining rent due on the lease amounts to $95,408. This same 11,626 square foot space is under lease to us pursuant to a lease agreement with Seneca Meadows Corporate Center III Limited Partnership (“Seneca”) for the period November 30, 2010 through December 15, 2015 to run concurrently with a lease with Seneca for a separate but adjacent 4,790 square foot facility expiring on December 31, 2015. We are currently actively pursuing an acceptable financial settlement and/or a sublease for all or a portion of this office space.

Litigation

The Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims which arise in the ordinary course of its business.  Although occasional adverse decisions or settlements may occur, the Company believes that the final disposition of such matters should not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

Ronald Pickett v. Telkonet, Inc.

As of July 14, 2010, we were a defendant in the matter captioned Ronald Pickett v. Telkonet, Inc., in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland.  The Plaintiff alleged that the Company failed to pay severance compensation in the amount of $238,000 as well as certain benefits and claimed an additional amount of $63,000 in unpaid business and travel expenses.  The plaintiff sought an award of treble damages on the severance claim alleging that the claimed benefits constitute “wages” under the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Act; though as an alternative to the breach of contract claim the plaintiff plead the equitable claim of promissory estoppel/detrimental reliance.  The court granted our motion for summary judgment on the breach of contract and treble damages claim.  The Company conceded the expenses issue and a judgment was issued in Mr. Pickett’s favor on this claim. As a result, the only issue before the court at trial was the promissory estoppel/detrimental reliance claim.  On July 14, 2010, the court, after hearing testimony on the matter, issued a verdict in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $259,456 (including prejudgment interest and gave the Company forty five (45) days from the entry of the judgment to satisfy the judgment after which the plaintiff may commence enforcement proceedings.  As of August 25, 2010 the Company satisfied both judgments against it in this matter by making full payments.

Tellabs, Inc. v. Telkonet, Inc.

Our landlord has filed a claim for unpaid rent in a case styled Tellabs, Inc. v. Telkonet, Inc. in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, State of Maryland and was granted a judgment in March 2010 in the amount of $64,966. Pursuant to that judgment, we received a notice of eviction from our landlord for the unpaid rent. We sought to extend the date for eviction but were unable to negotiate a payment plan acceptable to the landlord and voluntarily vacated the space on May 3, 2010.  Our landlord has filed an additional claim for unpaid rent and other expenses alleged to be due in a case styled Tellabs, Inc. v. Telkonet, Inc. in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, State of Maryland.  That matter is currently pending.

Linksmart Wireless Technology, LLC v. T-Mobile USA, Inc.

On July 1, 2008, Linksmart Wireless Technology, LLC, or Linksmart, filed a civil lawsuit in the Eastern District of Texas against EthoStream, LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary and 22 other defendants (Linksmart Wireless Technology, LLC v. T-Mobile USA, Inc., et al, U.S. District Court, for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division, No.2:08-cv-00264-TJW-CE).  This lawsuit alleges that the defendants’ services infringe a wireless network security patent held by Linksmart. Linksmart seeks a permanent injunction enjoining the defendants from infringing, inducing the infringement of, or contributing to the infringement of its patent, an award of damages and attorney’s fees.

On August 1, 2008, we timely filed an answer to the complaint denying the allegations. On February 27, 2009, the United States Patent Office ("USPTO") granted a reexamination request with respect to the patent in issue in this lawsuit.  Based upon four highly relevant and material prior art references that had not been considered by the USPTO in its initial examination, it found a “substantial new question of patentability” affecting all claims of the patent in suit.  On August 2, 2010 the USPTO issued a Final Office Action rejecting every claim of the patent in suit.  If this action is upheld on appeal it will result in the elimination of all of the issues in the pending litigation. There is a possibility that the claims of the patent will be reinstated on appeal either in their original form or as amended.  

Defendant Ramada Worldwide, Inc. provided us with notice of the suit and demanded that we defend and indemnify it pursuant to a vendor direct supplier agreement between EthoStream and WWC Supplier Services, Inc., a Ramada affiliate (wherein we agreed to indemnify, defend and hold Ramada harmless from and against claims of infringement).  After a review of that agreement, it was determined that EthoStream owes the duty to defend and indemnify with respect to services provided by Telkonet to Ramada and it has assumed Ramada’s defense.  An answer on Ramada’s behalf was filed in U.S. District Court, for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division on September 19, 2008.

On September 1, 2010, the court entered a 60 day stay at the plaintiff’s request. On September 15, 2010 we, along with other defendants, filed a motion seeking a stay of the litigation pending the conclusion of the reexamination proceeding. Subject to certain conditions, Linksmart agreed to entry of a stay. The court granted the defendants’ motion on October 26, 2010 and, subject to the agreed upon conditions, the matter is now stayed pending conclusion of the reexamination, including all appeals . A mandatory mediation was held in October, 2010 which did not achieve any results.

NOTE N – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The financial assets of the Company measured at fair value on a recurring basis are cash equivalents and long-term marketable securities. The Company’s long term marketable securities are generally classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy because they are valued using quoted market prices, broker or dealer quotations, or alternative pricing sources with reasonable levels of price transparency. The Company’s long-term investments are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy because they are valued using unobservable inputs, due to the fact that observable inputs are not available, or situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date.  The Company’s derivative liabilities and convertible debentures are classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy because they are valued using inputs which are not actively observable, either directly or indirectly.
 
 
Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;
     
 
Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability; or
     
 
Level 3: Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and are unobservable.
  
The following table sets forth the Company’s short- and long-term investments as of September 30, 2010 which are measured at fair value on a recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy. These are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement, (in thousands):

NOTE O – DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
 
On April 22, 2009, the Company completed the deconsolidation of our subsidiary MSTI Holdings, Inc. (MSTI) by reducing its ownership percentage and board membership.  The deconsolidation of MSTI has been accounted for as discontinued operations and accordingly, the assets and liabilities have been segregated in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet and reclassified as discontinued operations. The operating results relating to MSTI have been reclassified from continuing operations and reported as discontinued operations in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
 
On April 22, 2009, Warren V. Musser and Thomas C. Lynch, members of the Company’s Board of Directors, submitted their resignations as directors of MSTI.  As a result of these resignations, and the decrease in beneficial ownership resulting from the transaction described above, the Company is no longer required to consolidate MSTI as a majority- owned subsidiary and the Company’s investment in MSTI will now be accounted for under the cost method.

On June 26, 2009, MSTI entered into an Agreement and Consent to Acceptance of Collateral (“Agreement”) with its senior secured lenders, Alpha Capital Anstalt, Gemini Master Fund, Ltd., Whalehaven Capital Fund Limited and Brio Capital L.P. (“Secured Lenders”).   The Secured Lenders were the senior secured creditors of MSTI with regard to obligations in the total principal amount of $1,893,295 (together, the “Secured Lender Obligations”).

Under the Agreement: (a) MSTI (i) agreed and consented to the transfer to MST Acquisition Group LLC (the “Designee”), for the benefit of the Secured Lenders, of all of the assets of MSTI (the “Pledged Collateral”) in full satisfaction of the Secured Lender Obligations, and (ii) waived and released (x) all right, title and interest it has or might have in or to the Pledged Collateral, including any right to redemption, and (y) any claim for a surplus; and (b) the Secured Lenders agreed to accept the Pledged Collateral in full satisfaction of the Secured Lender Obligations and waived and released MSTI from any further obligations with respect to the Secured Lender Obligations.  
 
Net income (loss) from discontinued operations on the consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2009 includes the gain on deconsolidation of $6,932,586, offset by MSTI's net losses of $(635,735) for the period January 1, 2009 through April 30, 2009, the date of deconsolidation.  The market value of the MSTI common shares owned by the Company as of December 31, 2009 was deemed permanently impaired by management and as a result the Company has fully written off its investment in MSTI and has not included any value for MSTI in the balance sheet as of December 31, 2009.

The following table summarizes net income from discontinued operations for the period ended September 30, 2009.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Business

Telkonet, Inc. was formed in 1999 and is incorporated under the laws of the state of Utah.  We develop, manufacture and sell proprietary energy efficiency and smart grid networking technology products and platforms that have helped position us as a leading clean technology provider.

We began as a developer of powerline communications, or PLC, technology.  Our proprietary, patented PLC products utilize a building’s internal electrical wiring to form a data communications network, turning power outlets into data ports while leaving the electrical functionality unaffected.  In 2003, we launched our PlugPlusInternet suite of products, designed to maximize the use of the existing electrical wiring in commercial buildings, such as hotels, schools, multi-dwelling units, government and military buildings and office buildings. Our PlugPlusInternet products provided high-speed Internet access throughout a building, utilizing the electrical wiring already in place, converting virtually every electrical outlet into a high-speed data network. The PlugPlusInternet product suite was comprised of the PlugPlus Gateway, the PlugPlus Coupler and the PlugPlus Modem, which together built an Internet delivery system throughout an entire building.  We received our first order for our PlugPlusInternet products in October 2003.
  
In March 2007, we completed two strategic acquisitions.  On March 15, 2007, we completed the acquisition of EthoStream, LLC, or EthoStream, a leading high-speed wireless Internet access, or HSIA, solutions and technology provider targeting the hospitality industry with a customer base then consisting of approximately 1,800 hotel and timeshare properties representing in excess of 180,000 guest rooms.  We acquired 100% of the outstanding membership units of EthoStream for a purchase price of $11,756,097, which was comprised of $2.0 million in cash and 3,459,609 shares of our common stock.  The entire stock portion of the purchase price was deposited into escrow upon closing to satisfy certain potential indemnification obligations of the sellers under the purchase agreement.  The shares held in escrow are distributable over the three years following the closing. As of September 30, 2010, all shares are distributed to investors.
 
Our EthoStream Hospitality Network is now one of the largest hospitality HSIA service providers in the United States, with a customer base of approximately 2,300 properties representing over 205,000 hotel rooms.  This network has created a ready opportunity for us to market our energy efficiency solutions.  It also provides a marketing opportunity for our more traditional HSIA offerings, including the Telkonet iWire System.  The iWire System offers a fast and cost effective way to deliver commercial high-speed broadband access using a building’s existing electrical infrastructure to convert virtually every electrical outlet into a high-speed data port without the installation of additional wiring or major disruption of business activity.  The EthoStream Hospitality Network represents a significant portion of our hospitality growth and market share.  The EthoStream Hospitality Network is backed by a 24/7 U.S.-based in-house support center that uses integrated, web-based centralized management tools enabling proactive customer support.

While we continue to grow the EthoStream Hospitality Network, through our March 9, 2007 acquisition of Smart Systems International, or SSI, a leading manufacturer of in-room energy management systems for the hospitality industry with over 60,000 product installs as of the acquisition date, and the continued development of our PLC products, we have evolved into a “clean technology” company that develops, manufactures and sells proprietary energy efficiency and smart grid networking technology.  We acquired substantially all of the assets of SSI for cash and shares of our common stock having an aggregate value of $6,875,000.  The purchase price was comprised of $875,000 in cash and 2,227,273 shares of our common stock.  Of the stock issued in the transaction, 1,090,909 shares were held in an escrow account for a period of one year following the closing from which certain potential indemnification obligations under the purchase agreement could be satisfied.  The aggregate number of shares held in escrow was subject to adjustment upward or downward depending upon the trading price of our common stock during the one year period following the closing date.  On March 12, 2008, we released these shares from escrow, and on June 12, 2008 we issued an additional 1,882,225 shares pursuant to the adjustment provisions of the SSI asset purchase agreement.
  
Our Telkonet SmartEnergy, or TSE, and Networked Telkonet SmartEnergy, or NTSE, energy efficiency products incorporate our patented Recovery Time™ technology, allowing for the continuous monitoring of climate conditions to automatically adjust a room’s temperature accounting for the presence or absence of an occupant.  Our SmartEnergy products save energy while at the same time ensuring occupant comfort.  This technology is particularly attractive to our customers in the hospitality area, as well as the education, healthcare and government/military markets, who are continually seeking ways to reduce costs without impacting building occupant comfort.  By reducing energy usage automatically when a space is unoccupied, our customers are able to realize a significant cost savings without diminishing occupant comfort.  The hospitality, education, healthcare and government/military markets represent a significant audience for the occupancy-based energy management controls offered by the SmartEnergy platform and provide a large footprint for utility-based consumption management.  This platform may also be integrated with property management systems, automation systems and load shedding initiatives to increase the savings recognized.  Working directly with management companies and utilities allows us to offer enhanced opportunities to our customers for savings and control.  Our energy management systems are dynamically lowering HVAC costs in over 180,000 rooms and are an integral part of the numerous state and federal energy efficiency and rebate programs.

Our smart grid networking technology, including the Telkonet iWire System and the 200 Mbps Telkonet Series 5 PLC products, use PLC technology to quickly, economically and non-disruptively transform a site’s existing internal electrical infrastructure into an internet protocol, or IP, network backbone.  Our PLC systems offer the hard-wired security and reliability of a CAT-5 cabled network, but without the cost, physical disturbance and business disruption of wiring CAT-5 or the security issues inherent to wireless systems.
 
The development of an industrial PLC product for use within the utility space has introduced a competitive alternative to traditional local area network, or LAN, solutions. By capitalizing on the shortcomings of previously available offerings, we have gained traction and opened a new market opportunity.  Our Series 5 SmartGrid networking technology provides a compelling solution for power substation automation, power generation, renewable facilities, manufacturing, and research environments by providing a rapidly-deployable, low cost alternative to structured cable, wireless and fiber.  Operating at 200 Mbps, our PLC platform offers a secure new competitive alternative in grid communications, enabling LAN infrastructure for power substation command and control, monitoring and grid management, transforming a traditional power management system into a “smart grid” that delivers electricity in a manner that can save energy, reduce cost and increase reliability.  By leveraging the existing electrical wiring within a facility to transport data, our PLC solutions enable facilities to deploy sensing and control systems to locations without the need for new network wiring, and without the security risks associated with wireless systems.
  
We employ direct and indirect sales channels in all areas of our business.  With a growing value-added reseller network, we continue to broaden our reach throughout the industry.  Utilizing key integrators and strategic OEM partners, we have been able to recognize significant success in each of our targeted markets.  With an increasing share of our business originating outside of the hospitality industry, we have proven the versatility of our technology and the savings that can be derived through the use of our products.

Discontinued Operations

On January 31, 2006, we acquired a 90% interest in Microwave Satellite Technologies, Inc. from Frank Matarazzo, its sole stockholder, in exchange for $1.8 million in cash and 1.6 million unregistered shares of our common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $9,000,000.  The cash portion of the purchase price was paid in two installments, $900,000 at closing and $900,000 in February 2007.  The stock portion is payable from shares held in escrow, 400,000 shares of which were paid at closing and the remaining 1,200,000 reserve shares, which shall be issued based on the achievement of 3,300 video and data subscribers over a three year period from the closing (later extended to July 2009 pursuant to a May 2008 agreement between the parties).  The escrow agreement expired on July 31, 2009.  As of August 14, 2009, we had issued 800,000 of the reserve shares.
  
On April 22, 2009, we completed the deconsolidation of our subsidiary, MSTI Holdings, Inc., or MSTI.  To effect the deconsolidation of MSTI, we were required to reduce our ownership percentage and board membership in MSTI.  On February 26, 2009, we executed a Stock Purchase Agreement pursuant to which we sold 2.8 million shares of MSTI common stock and, as a result of this transaction, we reduced our beneficial ownership in MSTI from 58% to 49% of the issued and outstanding shares of MSTI common stock.  On April 22, 2009, Warren V. Musser and Thomas C. Lynch, members of our Board of Directors, submitted their resignations as directors of MSTI.  Because of these resignations we no longer control a majority of MSTI’s board of directors.  As a result of the deconsolidation, the financial statements and accompanying footnotes included in this prospectus include disclosures of the results of operations of MSTI, for all periods presented, as discontinued operations.
