Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of WPCS International Incorporated (WPCS) and its wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries, as follows, collectively referred to as “we”, “us” or the "Company". United States-based subsidiaries include WPCS Incorporated, WPCS International – Suisun City, Inc. (Suisun City Operations), WPCS International – Lakewood, Inc. (Lakewood Operations), WPCS International – Hartford, Inc. (Hartford Operations), WPCS International – Trenton, Inc. (Trenton Operations), WPCS International – Seattle, Inc.

(China Operations), WPCS Australia Pty Ltd., WPCS International – Brendale, Pty Ltd., and The Pride Group (QLD) Pty Ltd. (Pride), (collectively, Australia Operations).
  
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q of Article 10 of Regulation S-X and do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Accordingly, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of the management, considered necessary for a fair presentation of condensed consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods. Operating results for the three and six month periods ended October 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2014. The amounts for the April 30, 2013 balance sheet have been extracted from the audited consolidated financial statements included in Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2013.
 
The Company provides design-build engineering services that focus on the implementation requirements of communications infrastructure. The Company provides its engineering capabilities including wireless communication, specialty construction and electrical power to the public services, healthcare, energy and corporate enterprise markets worldwide.
 
Liquidity and Going Concern
  
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and the amount and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
  
At October 31, 2013, the Company has losses from operations, and has outstanding balances due to its former surety under a forbearance agreement of $1,533,757. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
  
As further described in Note 4, “Senior Secured Convertible Notes”, on December 4, 2012, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with six accredited investors (the Buyers) pursuant to which, the Company sold an aggregate of (i) $4,000,000 principal amount of senior secured convertible notes (the Notes) and (ii) warrants (the Warrants) to purchase 2,274,796 shares of the Company's common stock (Common Stock), to the Buyers for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,000,000 (the Financing). The closing of the Financing was completed on December 5, 2012 (the Closing Date).
 
As more fully described in Note 12, “Commitments and Contingencies,” on July 12, 2012, the Company executed the Surety Financing and Confession of Judgment Agreement (the Financing Agreement) with Zurich American Insurance Company (Zurich). Under the terms of the Financing Agreement, Zurich advanced the Company $793,927 to assist in the completion of the project contract with the Camden County Improvement Authority for work at the Cooper Medical Center of Rowan University (the Owner or Cooper Project). The Company was in default under the terms of the Financing Agreement.
 
On April 17, 2013, the Company executed the Surety Forbearance and Confession of Judgment Agreement (the Forbearance Agreement) with Zurich, which supersedes the Financing Agreement. The Company is currently in default under the Forbearance Agreement due to its failure to pay the monthly Interim Liability Payment of $25,000 for the month of December 2013.  In addition, the Company does not have the ability to discharge the Loss Amount of $1,533,757 due December 31, 2013 under the Forbearance Agreement.  The Company is currently in discussions with Zurich for the settlement of the Loss Amount due under the Forbearance Agreement.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in settling with Zurich the Loss Amount due.
 
The Company has submitted a claim and request for equitable adjustment to the Owner in the amount of $2,421,425 (the Claim) for significant delays, disruptions and construction changes that were beyond its control related to the Cooper Project, which was completed in the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013. If the Company is successful in the settlement of this Claim, the Company expects to use the proceeds from the claim to repay Zurich the remaining amounts due under the Forbearance Agreement. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in settling with the Owner for all or a portion of the submitted claim.
 
The Company's continuation as a going concern beyond the next twelve months and its ability to discharge its liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business is ultimately dependent upon the execution of its future plans, which include the following: (1) its ability to generate future operating income, reduce operating expenses and produce cash from its operating activities, which will be affected by general economic, competitive, and other factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control; (2) the repayment of, or the modification of the terms under the Zurich Forbearance Agreement; (3) the settlement of the claim with the Owner; and (4) obtaining additional funds, either through financing or sale of assets. There can be no assurance that the Company’s plans to ensure continuation as a going concern will be successful.
