Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share
Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share  
Basic net income (loss) per common share is based upon the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share reflects the potential dilution that would occur if common stock equivalent securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. At September 30, 2016, there are 3,044,012 securities that can potentially dilute basic EPS in the future (including stock issuable under contingent stock agreements). These securities were not included in the computation of diluted EPS because they would have had an antidilutive effect on EPS for the periods presented.
Fair value measurements
Fair value measurements
The carrying amounts of cash, receivables, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The carrying value of the long term debt approximates its fair value since the components of long term debt have been recently negotiated.
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year presentation in the consolidated financial statements.
Unaudited interim financial information
Unaudited interim financial information:
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016 or for any other interim period or other future year. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 included in the Company’s Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 30, 2016.
Recent accounting pronouncements
Recent accounting pronouncements:

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, "Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting." This standard simplifies several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions including the recognition of excess tax benefits and deficiencies, the classification of those excess tax benefits on the statement of cash flows, an accounting policy election for forfeitures, the amount an employer can withhold to cover income taxes and still qualify for equity classification, and the classification of those taxes paid on the statement of cash flows. This ASU is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2016 with early adoption permitted. The transition method is either prospective, retrospective or modified retrospective, depending on the area covered in this update. The Company is still in the process of analyzing the effects of this new standard to determine the impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations, cash flows, and related disclosures.

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASC 2016-10, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) – Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing.” These amendments clarify the identification of performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance. These amendments affect the guidance in ASU 2014-09, which is not yet effective. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU 2016-10 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09, as updated by ASU 2015-14. The impact on our financial statements of adopting ASU 2016-10 is currently being assessed by management and management will make its determination of the impact in fiscal 2017.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15 "Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), Classification of certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments." ASU 2016-15 will make eight targeted changes to how cash receipts and cash payments are presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. The new standard will require adoption on a retrospective basis unless it is impracticable to apply, in which case it would be required to apply the amendments prospectively as of the earliest date practicable. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.
