Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which statements involve substantial risk and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans, or intentions. Forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, but are not limited to, statements about:

 

our ability to sustain recent growth rates;

 

our ability to manage the growth of our operations over time;

 

our ability to maintain, grow and enforce our brand and trademark rights;

 

our ability to improve our products and develop new products;

 

our ability to obtain, grow and enforce intellectual property related to our business and avoid infringement or other violation of the intellectual property rights of others;

 

our ability to successfully open and operate new showrooms;

 

our ability to increase our Internet sales; and

 

our ability to compete and succeed in a highly competitive and evolving industry.

 

We caution you that the foregoing list may not contain all the forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. We have based the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q primarily on our current expectations and projections about future events and trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects. The outcome of the events described in these forward-looking statements is subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors described in the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all risks and uncertainties that could have an impact on the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We cannot assure you that the results, events, and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur, and actual results, events, or circumstances could differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.

 

The forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q relate only to events as of the date on which the statements are made. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or to reflect new information or the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as required by law. We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions, or expectations disclosed in our forward-looking statements, and you should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures, or investments we may make.

THE LOVESAC COMPANY

 

CONSOLIDATED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

FOR THE THIRTEEN AND THIRTY-NINE WEEKS ENDED NOVEMBER 4, 2018 AND OCTOBER 29, 2017

(Unaudited)

 

 

 

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation, Operations and Liquidity

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheet of The Lovesac Company (the “Company”) as of February 4, 2018, which has been derived from our audited financial statements as of and for the 53 week year ended February 4, 2018, and the accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial reporting. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements, prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”), have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations. The financial information presented herein, which is not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full current fiscal year, reflects all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. Such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended February 4, 2018.

 

Due to the seasonality of the Company’s business, with the majority of our activity occurring in the second half of the fiscal year, the results of operations for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

 

The Company was formed in the State of Delaware on January 3, 2017, in connection with a corporate reorganization with SAC Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, the predecessor entity to the Company and the largest shareholder of the Company. Pursuant to the terms of the reorganization, which was completed on March 22, 2017, SAC Acquisition LLC assigned, and the Company assumed all rights, title and interest to all assets and liabilities, including the intellectual property that is currently owned by the Company, in exchange for 6,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company.

 

The Company designs and sells foam filled furniture, sectional couches, and related accessories throughout the world. As of November 4, 2018, the Company operated 77 leased retail showrooms located throughout the United States. In addition, the Company operates a retail internet website and does business to business transactions through its wholesale operations principally with Costco.

 

The Company has incurred significant operating losses and used cash in its operating activities since inception. Operating losses have resulted from inadequate sales levels for the cost structure and expenses as a result of expanding into new markets. The Company continues to enter into new retail showrooms in larger markets to increase sales levels and invest in marketing initiatives to increase brand awareness. Of course, there can be no assurance that the anticipated sales levels will be achieved.

 

On June 22, 2018, the board of directors of the Company approved a 1-for-2.5 reverse stock split of its’ shares of common stock. The reverse stock split became effective immediately prior to the closing of its initial public offering (“IPO”). All stock amounts included in these financial statements have been adjusted to reflect this reverse stock split.

 

On June 27, 2018, the Company held its IPO, selling 4,025,000 shares at $16.00 per share. Net proceeds to the Company from the offering was approximately $59.2 million after legal and underwriting expenses. The Company believes that based on its current sales and expense levels in fiscal 2019 to date and projections for the next twelve months, that cash from operations, along with the addition of the new credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, see Note 7, and the proceeds from the IPO, the Company will have sufficient working capital to cover operating cash needs through the twelve month period from the financial statement issuance date.

 

On October 29, 2018, certain selling stockholders conducted a secondary offering of 2,300,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The Company did not sell any shares or receive any proceeds from the sale of the common stock by the selling stockholders.

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation, Operations and Liquidity (Continued)

 

Immediately prior to the secondary offering, Mistral SAC Holdings, LLC (“Mistral”), and its affiliated entities owned approximately 56% of our common stock. Immediately after the completion of the offering, such entities own approximately 44% of our common stock. Accordingly, we now cease to be a “controlled company” within the meaning of the corporate governance standards of Nasdaq and we will, subject to certain transition periods permitted by Nasdaq rules, no longer rely on exemptions from corporate governance requirements that are available to controlled companies.

 

Reclassifications: Certain reclassifications of prior period amounts have been made to conform to the current period presentation. In the second quarter of fiscal 2019, franchise taxes were included in the provision for income taxes line on the condensed consolidated interim statement of operations and in the current period, franchise taxes are included in selling, general and administrative expenses.

 

Note 2 – Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Except as described below, the Company has considered all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and does not believe the adoption of such pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial statements. The Company, as an emerging growth company, has elected to use the extended transition period for complying with new or revised financial accounting standards.

 

In August 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-14, which defers the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) by one year. ASU 2014-09 is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model requiring a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount reflecting the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. As a result, ASU 2015-14 is now effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018, which for the Company is, fiscal 2020. Earlier application is permitted. The Company is in the process of determining how this update will impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) amending lease guidance to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, which for the Company is fiscal 2021, with early adoption permitted. Management is currently evaluating the impact ASU No. 2016-02 will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In March 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718). ASU 2016-09 simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. Some of the simplified areas apply only to nonpublic entities. ASU 2016-09 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted in any interim or annual period. If an entity early adopts ASU 2016-09 in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. Methods of adoption vary according to each of the amendment provisions. Management has early adopted this standard in fiscal 2018 and applied its provisions as they relate to the restricted stock units, see Note 8.

 

In August 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Clarification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which eliminates the diversity in practice related to classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows, by adding or clarifying guidance on eight specific cash flow issues. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, which for the Company is, fiscal 2020. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company has not yet determined the effect of the adoption of ASU 2016-15 on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260) Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815),” which addresses the complexity of accounting for certain financial instruments with down round features. Down round features are features of certain equity-linked instruments (or embedded features) that result in the strike price being reduced on the basis of the pricing of future equity offerings. Current accounting guidance creates cost and complexity for entities that issue financial instruments (such as warrants and convertible instruments) with down round features that require fair value measurement of the entire instrument or conversion option. The amendments in Part I of this Update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. The Company early adopted this ASU in fiscal 2018 and applied its provisions which allowed the Company to account for the warrants issued along with the issuance of preferred shares in fiscal 2018 as equity versus a liability, see Note 8.

Note 3 – Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, Net

 

In accordance with US GAAP, goodwill is not amortized, but rather tested for impairment at least annually by comparing the estimated fair values to their carrying values. There were no triggering events that occurred during the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 or October 29, 2017 that required the Company to test for impairment.

Note 4 – Income Taxes

 

The Company continues to provide a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty as to when business conditions will improve sufficiently to enable it to utilize its deferred tax assets. As a result, the Company did not record a federal or state tax benefit on its operating losses for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017.

 

The Company does not anticipate any material adjustments relating to unrecognized tax benefits within the next twelve months; however, the ultimate outcome of tax matters is uncertain and unforeseen results can occur. We had no material interest or penalties during the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017, respectively, and we do not anticipate any such items during the next twelve months. Our policy is to record interest and penalties directly related to uncertain tax positions as income tax expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Note 5 – Basic and Diluted Net Loss Per Common Share

 

The following table presents the calculation of loss per share for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29,2017:

 

     For the thirteen weeks ended 
     November 4,
2018
   October 29,
2017
 
  Numerator:        
  Net loss - Basic and diluted  $(2,490,618)  $(2,176,831)
  Preferred dividends and deemed dividends   (408,919)   (382,573)
  Net loss attributable to common shares   (2,899,537)   (2,559,404)
  Denominator:          
  Weighted average number of common shares for basic and diluted net loss per share   13,465,882    6,000,000 
  Basic and diluted net loss per share  $(0.22)  $(0.43)

 

     For the thirty-nine weeks ended 
     November 4,
2018
   October 29,
2017
 
  Numerator:        
  Net loss - Basic and diluted  $(15,143,466)  $(7,928,446)
  Preferred dividends and deemed dividends   (27,832,998)   (669,605)
  Net loss attributable to common shares   (42,976,464)   (8,598,051)
  Denominator:          
  Weighted average number of common shares for basic and diluted net loss per share   9,536,164    6,000,000 
  Basic and diluted net loss per share  $(4.51)  $(1.43)

 

Diluted net loss per common share includes, in periods in which they are dilutive, the effect of those potentially dilutive securities where the average market price of the common stock exceeds the exercise prices for the respective periods.

 

As of November 4, 2018, there were 1,513,627, of potentially dilutive shares including common stock related to restricted stock units of 432,902 and warrants of 1,080,725. As of October 29, 2017, there were no potentially dilutive shares relating to restricted stock units or warrants. These were excluded from the diluted loss per share calculation because the effect of including these potentially dilutive shares was antidilutive.

Note 8 – Stockholders’ Equity

 

Preferred Stock

 

In fiscal 2018, the Company completed financing transactions with funds and investment vehicles advised by Mistral, Satori, executive management and third-party investors. As part of the transactions, the Company received $21,139,845 in cash (net of issuance costs of $1,325,156) in exchange for a total of 2,247 Series A, A-1 and A-2 Preferred Units (preferred stock equivalent of 2,247,000) and warrants to purchase 798,975 shares of common stock, subject to adjustments in the exercise price. The preferred stock carried an annual dividend of 8% compounded and conversion rights dependent upon certain events occurring. The adjustment to exercise price and conversion rights are explained in detail in the Company’s final prospectus (the “Prospectus”), dated June 26, 2018 and filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

 

In order to eliminate all outstanding preferred stock upon completion of the IPO, on April 19, 2018, the Company and the majority holders of each of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series A-1 Preferred Stock and the Series A-2 Preferred Stock agreed to amend and restate each series of preferred stock to, among other things, revise the conversion features of the preferred stock to provide that, immediately prior to the closing of an initial public offering, the preferred stock:

 

(1)will accrue an additional amount of dividends equal to the amount of dividends that would have accrued and accumulated through and including the one-year anniversary of the completion of the initial public offering,

 

  (2) will, along with the aggregate accrued or accumulated and unpaid dividends thereon, automatically convert into shares of common stock at a price per share equal to the lesser of (a) 70% of the offering price, or (b) the applicable calculation set forth pursuant to the terms of their respective certificates of designation.

 

All outstanding preferred stock totaling $25,645,000, including the additional year of dividends of $2,037,200 and accumulated dividends at 8% through June 29, 2018 of $2,495,704 was converted into 3,287,441 shares of common stock upon completion of the Company’s IPO on June 29, 2018. The preferred stock converted to common stock at $9.13 per share resulting in a deemed dividend of $22,601,161 related to the conversion.

 

Common Stock Warrants

 

In fiscal 2018, as noted above, the Company completed financing transactions with funds and investment vehicles advised by Mistral, Satori, and executive management in which the Company originally issued warrants to purchase an aggregate total of 15,979,500 shares of common stock subject to adjustments in the exercise price as defined below. See specific details in the Company’s Prospectus.

Note 8 – Stockholders’ Equity (Continued)

 

Common Stock Warrants (Continued)

 

In consideration for agreeing to amend the outstanding preferred stock to automatically convert immediately prior to the completion of the IPO, on April 19, 2018, the Company and a majority of the holders of the warrants issued along with the preferred stock, agreed to amend and restate the warrants to replace the aggregate dollar value of each warrant with a fixed number of warrant shares. In order to prevent dilution of the purchase rights granted under the warrants, the exercise price shall be calculated as follows:

 

I.If, prior to the exercise of the warrant, the Company completes its initial public offering of Common Stock (“Qualified IPO”), the exercise price per warrant share shall, subject to certain provisions, be equal to the purchase price per share of Common Stock in the Qualified IPO;

 

II.If, prior to the exercise of the warrant and prior to a Qualified IPO, the Company completes a third party equity or equity-linked financing with an institutional investor resulting in aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of at least $15,000,000 (a “Qualified Financing”), the exercise price per warrant share shall be equal to the purchase price per share of Common Stock in the Qualified Financing (subject to adjustment); provided, however, that following completion of a Qualified IPO, the exercise price per Warrant Share shall be the lower of the exercise price (the “Qualified Exercise Price”);

 

III.If, prior to exercise of the warrant, the Company has not completed a Qualified IPO or Qualified Financing, the exercise price per warrant share shall be determined based on a valuation of the Company prior to such exercise of $80 million (the “Valuation Exercise Price,” and together with the IPO Exercise Price or the Qualified Exercise Price, as the case may be, the “Exercise Price”); or

 

IV.If there is Qualified Financing subsequent to a previous Qualified Financing and prior to a Qualified IPO, the Exercise Price per warrant share shall be equal to the lesser of the then current Exercise Price immediately prior to such subsequent Qualified Financing and the purchase price or deemed purchase price per share of Common Stock in the subsequent Qualified Financing.

 

As a result of the modification, on April 19, 2018, the Company updated the fair value of the warrants using the assumptions detailed below using a probability-weighted expected return. As the total fair value of the modified warrants was less than the total fair value of the original warrants, there was no financial statement impact during the thirteen weeks ended May 6, 2018. On June 29, 2018, the Company completed a Qualified IPO and the exercise price was adjusted to equal the purchase price per share of common stock of $16.00. The Company computed the value of the warrants with the updated assumptions using the Black-Scholes Model, as described below, and recorded the difference between the fair value of the new warrants compared to the old warrants as a deemed dividend of $1,498,079.

 

There were 281,750 warrants, with a five-year term, issued to Roth Capital Partners, LLC as part of the underwriting agreement in connection with the Company’s IPO. These warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes model.

 

In fiscal 2019, the Company amended and restated warrants totaling 56,077 with a three-year term, valued using the Black-Scholes model. The Company recorded the difference between the fair value of the new warrants compared to the old warrants as a deemed dividend of $408,919.

Note 8 – Stockholders’ Equity (Continued)

 

Common Stock Warrants (Continued)

 

The warrants may be exercised at any time following the date of issuance during the period prior to their expiration date. The fair value of each warrant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes model. Expected volatilities are based on comparable Companies’ historical volatility, which management believes represents the most accurate basis for estimating expected future volatility under the current circumstances. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. treasury yield in effect at the time of the grant. The Black-Scholes model assumptions are noted in the following table:

 

     April 19,
2018
   June 29,
2018
   June 29,
2018
   September 26,
2018
 
  Warrants   798,795    798,795    281,750    56,077 
  Expected volatility   41.4% - 43.7%   42.0%   41.3%   43.8%
  Expected dividend yield   0%   0%   0%   0%
  Expected term (in years)   3.10    3.00    5.00    3.00 
  Risk-free interest rate   1.7% - 2.0%   2.6%   2.7%   2.6%
  Exercise price  $14.80   $16.00   $19.20   $9.13 
  Calculated fair value of warrant  $3.12   $5.00   $8.84   $12.87 

 

Total warrants outstanding as of November 4, 2018, were as follows:

 

     Average Exercise Price   Number of Warrants   Weighted Average Remaining Life 
  Outstanding at February 4, 2018  $17.18    930,054    3.24 
                  
  Warrants issued   18.56    1,136,802    3.65 
                  
  Expired and canceled   17.18    (930,054)   (3.20)
                  
  Exercised   9.13    (56,077)   2.68 
                  
  Warrants Outstanding at November 4, 2018  $16.83    1,080,725    3.17 

 

The Company early adopted ASU 2017-11, which addresses the accounting for warrants with down round features that result in the strike price being reduced on the basis of the pricing of future equity offerings, which allowed the Company to account for the warrants issued along with the preferred raise in fiscal 2018 as equity versus a liability.

 

Equity Incentive Plan

 

In October 2017, the Company adopted the 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) which provides for Awards in the form of Options, Stock Appreciation rights, Restricted Stock Awards, Restricted Stock Units, Performance shares, Performance Units, Cash-Based Awards and Other Stock-Based Awards. In April 2018, the board of directors of the Company approved an increase in shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the Plan from 420,000 to 604,612 shares of common stock.

 

On May 10, 2018, the Board of Directors approved an increase in shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the Plan from 604,612 to 615,066 shares of common stock.

 

All awards shall be granted within 10 years from the effective date of the Plan. Other than the activity disclosed below relating to Restricted Stock Units, there was no other activity under the Plan for the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017.

Note 11 – Barter Arrangements

 

In fiscal 2018, the Company entered into a bartering arrangement with Icon International, Inc., a vendor, whereas the Company provided inventory in exchange for media credits. During fiscal 2018, the Company exchanged $577,326 of inventory plus the cost of freight for certain media credits. To account for the exchange, the Company recorded the transfer of the inventory asset as a reduction of inventory and an increase to a prepaid media asset, of which $0 as of November 4, 2018 and $307,417 as of February 4, 2018, remained and is included in “Prepaid and other current assets” on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. The Company has no unused media credits remaining as of November 4, 2018. There were no such arrangements in the thirteen or thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017.

 

The Company accounts for barter transactions under ASC Topic No. 845 “Nonmonetary Transactions.” Barter transactions with commercial substance are recorded at the estimated fair value of the products exchanged unless the products received have a more readily determinable estimated fair value.

 

The Company did not enter into any additional bartering arrangements during the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018.

 

Note 12 – Subsequent Events

 

The Company has evaluated events and transactions subsequent to November 4, 2018 through the date the consolidated condensed financial statements were issued.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our Prospectus. As discussed in the section titled “Note About Forward-Looking Statements,” the following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that, if they never materialize or prove incorrect, could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to, those identified below and those discussed in the section titled “Risk Factors” under Part II, Item 1A in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in the Prospectus.

 

We operate on a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the Sunday closest to February 1. Each fiscal year generally is comprised of four 13-week fiscal quarters, although in the years with 53 weeks, the fourth quarter represents a 14-week period.

 

Overview

 

We are a technology driven, omni-channel company that designs, manufactures and sells unique, high quality furniture comprised of modular couches called Sactionals and premium foam beanbag chairs called Sacs. We market and sell our products through modern and efficient showrooms and, increasingly, through online sales. We believe that our ecommerce centric approach, coupled with our ability to deliver our large upholstered products through nationwide express couriers, are unique to the furniture industry.

 

The name “Lovesac” was derived from our original innovative product, a premium foam beanbag chair, the Sac. The Sac was developed in 1995 and provided the foundation for the Company. Sales of this product increased to $21.7 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018, as compared to $14.8 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. We believe that the large size, comfortable foam filling and irreverent branding of our Sacs products have been instrumental in growing a loyal customer base and our positive, fun image.

 

Our Sactionals product line currently represents a majority of our sales. Sales of this product increased to $77.3 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018, as compared to $46.8 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017.  Sactionals are a couch system that consists of two components, “seats” and “sides”, which can be arranged, rearranged and expanded into thousands of configurations easily and without tools. Our Sactional products include a number of patented features relating to their geometry and modularity, coupling mechanisms and other features. We believe that these high quality premium priced products enhance our brand image and customer loyalty and expect them to continue to garner a significant share of our sales.

 

Sacs and Sactionals come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics that allow consumers to customize their purchases in numerous configurations and styles. We provide lifetime warranties on our Sactionals frames and the proprietary foam used in both product lines, and three-year warranties on our covers. Our Designed for Life trademark reflects our dynamic product line that is built to last and evolve throughout a customer’s life. Customers can continually update their Sacs and Sactionals with new covers, additions and configurations to accommodate the changes in their family and housing situations.

 

We currently market and sell our products through 77 showrooms at top tier malls, lifestyle centers and street locations in 30 states in the U.S. Our modern, efficient showrooms are designed to appeal to millennials and other purchasers looking for comfortable, enduring, premium furniture. They showcase the different sizes of our Sacs, the myriad forms into which our Sactionals can be configured, and the large variety of fabrics that can be used to cover our products.

 

As part of our direct to consumer sales approach, we also sell our products through our ecommerce platform. We believe our products are uniquely suited to this channel. Our foam-based Sacs can be reduced to one-eighth of their normal size and each of our Sactionals components weighs less than 40 pounds upon shipping. Our showrooms and other direct marketing efforts work in concert to drive customer conversion in ecommerce.

Product Overview

 

We challenge the notion that a piece of furniture is static by offering a dynamic product line built to last and evolve throughout a customer’s life. Our products serve as a set of building blocks that can be rearranged, restyled and re-upholstered with any new setting, mitigating constant changes in fashion and style.

 

Sactionals. We believe our Sactionals platform is unlike competing products in its adaptability yet is comparable aesthetically to similarly priced premium couches and sectionals. Our Sactional products include a number of patented features relating to its geometry and modularity, coupling mechanisms and other features. Utilizing only two, standardized pieces, “seats” and “sides,” and over 300 high quality, tight-fitting covers that are removable, washable, and changeable, customers can create numerous permutations of a sectional couch with minimal effort. Customization is further enhanced with our specialty-shaped modular offerings, such as our wedge seat and roll arm side. Our custom features and accessories can be added easily and quickly to a Sactional to meet endless design, style and utility preferences, reflecting our Designed for Life philosophy. Sactionals are built to meet the highest durability and structural standards applicable to fixed couches. Sactionals are comprised of standardized units and we guarantee their compatibility over time, which we believe is a major pillar of their value proposition to the consumer.

 

Sacs. We believe that our Sacs product line is a category leader in oversized beanbags. The Sac product line offers 6 different sizes ranging from 22 pounds to 95 pounds with capacity to seat 3+ people on the larger model Sacs. Filled with Durafoam, a proprietary blend of shredded foam, Sacs provide serene comfort and guaranteed durability. Their removable covers are machine washable and may be easily replaced with a wide selection of cover offerings.

 

Accessories. Our accessories complement our Sacs and Sactionals by increasing their adaptability to meet evolving consumer demands and preferences. Our current product line offers Sactional-specific drink holders, footsac blankets, decorative pillows, fitted seat tables and ottomans in varying styles and finishes, providing our customers with the flexibility to customize their furnishings with decorative and practical add-ons to meet evolving style preferences. We are in the process of developing additional accessories for the tech-savvy consumer.

 

Sales Channels

 

Lovesac offers its products through an inventory lean omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to our customers in showrooms and online. In recent periods, we have increased our focus on providing a platform for the transaction of business online through digital and mobile applications. As consumers increasingly transact via various ecommerce channels, we believe our robust and user-friendly technological platform is well positioned to benefit from this growth. Additionally, our products’ compact packaging facilitates production scheduling, lower shipping costs and the outsourcing of our shipping function to nationwide express couriers, allowing us to quickly and cost-effectively deliver online orders.

 

We leverage our showroom as both a traditional retail channel to purchase our products and an educational center for prospective online customers to learn about and interact with our products in real time. Compared to traditional retailers, our showrooms require significantly less square footage because we need to maintain only a few sample seats, sides and Sacs to demonstrate numerous configurations. Warehouse space is minimized by our ability to stack our inventory for immediate sale. In addition to providing a compelling customer experience, we believe that our showroom model provides a more efficient use of capital and logistical advantages over our competitors.

 

We have an ongoing working relationship with Costco to operate “roadshows” in Costco’s stores, which we refer to as shop in shops, throughout fiscal 2019. Our shop in shops display select Sacs and Sactionals and are staffed similarly to our more traditional showrooms with associates trained to demonstrate and sell the product.

EBITDA (as defined below), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Average Unit Volume (collectively, our “Non-GAAP Measures”) are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures of operating performance, as they eliminate expenses that are not reflective of the underlying business performance, facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Additionally, EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, alongside GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), to measure and evaluate our operating performance and we believe these measures are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance. We expect to continue to experience positive Adjusted EBITDA on an annual basis and we believe we will continue to improve positive Adjusted EBITDA dollars for fiscal 2019 and going forward.

 

Our Non-GAAP Measures are not GAAP measures of our financial performance or liquidity and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share as a measure of financial performance, cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. They should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Additionally, our Non-GAAP Measures are not intended to be measures of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as tax payments and debt service requirements and certain other cash costs that may recur in the future. Our Non-GAAP Measures contain certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and cash costs to replace assets being depreciated and amortized. In addition, our Non-GAAP Measures exclude certain non-recurring and other charges.

 

You should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in our Non-GAAP Measures. Our presentation of our Non-GAAP Measures should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and by using our Non-GAAP Measures as supplemental information. Our Non-GAAP Measures are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation.

  

We define “EBITDA” as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include sponsor fees, equity-based compensation expense, write-offs of property and equipment, deferred rent, financing expenses and certain other charges and gains that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance. The following provides a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:

How We Assess the Performance of Our Business

 

In assessing the performance of our business, we consider a variety of financial and operating measures, including the following:

 

Net Sales

 

Net sales reflect our sale of merchandise plus shipping and handling revenue collected from our customers, less returns and discounts. Sales made at Company operated showrooms, including shop in shops, are recognized at the point of sale when payment is tendered, and ownership is transferred to the customer, which may occur after the sale. Sales of merchandise via the Internet are recognized upon receipt and verification of payment and shipment of the merchandise to the customer. We expect to continue to experience healthy growth in net sales and Internet sales to increase as a percentage of total sales.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit is equal to our net sales less cost of merchandise sold. Gross profit as a percentage of our net sales is referred to as gross margin. Fiscal 2019 gross profit margin will be slightly, but not materially, lower than fiscal 2018 gross profit margin. Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2020 gross profit margin to be lower than fiscal 2019 gross profit margin relating to the continued impact of product and margin shift, tariffs and investment into warehousing and distribution infrastructure to support growth. The 10% tariff is being mitigated in total dollars but will have impact on margin percent.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses include all operating costs, other than marketing expense, not included in cost of merchandise sold. These expenses include all payroll and payroll-related expenses; showroom expenses, including occupancy costs related to showroom operations, such as rent and common area maintenance; occupancy and expenses related to many of our operations at our headquarters, including utilities; Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales is usually higher in lower volume quarters and lower in higher volume quarters because a significant portion of the costs are relatively fixed.

 

Our recent revenue growth has been accompanied by increased selling, general and administrative expenses. The most significant components of these increases are payroll and rent costs. We expect these expenses, as well as rent expense associated with the opening of new showrooms, to increase as we grow our business. We expect to leverage total selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales as sales volumes continue to grow. We expect to invest in infrastructure over the next 18 months to support the Company’s growth. These investments will lessen the impact of expense leveraging during the period of investment with the greater impact of expense leveraging happening after the period of investment.

 

As a result of our IPO, we incurred additional legal, accounting and other expenses that we did not incur as a private company, including costs associated with public company reporting and corporate governance requirements. These requirements include compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, other rules implemented by the SEC and applicable Nasdaq stock exchange rules. These rules and regulations have substantially increased our legal and financial compliance costs, made certain financial reporting and other activities more time-consuming and costly, and have required our management and other personnel to devote substantial time to these requirements. In this regard, we have hired additional accounting and financial staff with appropriate public company experience and technical accounting knowledge.

 

Marketing

 

Marketing expense includes digital, social, and traditional marketing initiatives, that cover all of our business channels. Marketing expense will continue to increase as a percentage to sales as we continue to invest in marketing which has accelerated sales growth. We expect to continue to maintain our marketing investments at 10%-12% on an annual basis. The investment by quarter may vary greatly.

Thirteen Weeks ended November 4, 2018 Compared to the Thirteen Weeks ended October 29, 2017

 

Net sales

 

Net sales increased $17.3 million, or 70.9%, to $41.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $24.4 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in net sales is primarily due to an increase in new customers, which grew by 36.8% in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to 55.5% in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017 and was accompanied by an increase in the total number of units sold by approximately 79,211, which reflects a higher average order volume per customer. We had 77 and 64 showrooms open as of November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017, respectively. We opened 5 additional showrooms and did not close any showrooms in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018. Showrooms sales increased $9.0 million, or 47.3%, to $28.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to $19.0 million in thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. This increase was due in large part to our comparable showroom sales increase of $6.6 million, or 40.5%, to $23.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $16.3 million in thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. Retail sales per selling square foot increased $90, or 28%, to $406 in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $316 in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. Internet sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) increased $3.7 million, or 93.9 %, to $7.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $4.0 million for the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. We believe that the increase in both showroom and Internet sales was due primarily to our customers’ favorable reaction to our Sactionals products, the opening of additional showrooms, the redesign of our showrooms and our increased marketing initiatives. Other sales, which include shop in shop sales, increased $4.6 million, or 333.9%, to $5.9 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to $1.4 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. This increase was due in large part to our increase in the use of shop in shops. We expect to continue to experience healthy growth in net sales and Internet sales to increase as a percentage of total sales.

 

Gross profit

 

Gross profit increased $9.2 million, or 67.5%, to $22.9 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 from  $13.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. Gross margin decreased to 54.9% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 from 56.0% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The decrease in gross margin percentage of 1.1% was driven primarily as the result of channel and product mix with shop in shop sales and sactional sales increasing as a percent to total sales. Both carry a lower margin than our other channels and products. Although shop in shop sales carry a lower gross margin, these sales are media amplifiers and create brand awareness which have an overall positive impact to the Company. Our sactional products continue to be the largest growing product category for Lovesac. Freight costs are slightly higher as a percentage of net sales due to increased selling activities through our ecommerce and our other channel. The decrease in gross margin was partially offset by reduced costs of our Sactionals and Sacs products. The decrease in costs of our Sactionals and Sacs products was primarily related to cost savings from a change in the sourcing of our Lovesoft and down blend fills.

 

Fiscal 2019 gross profit margin will be slightly, but not materially, lower than fiscal 2018 gross profit margin. Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2020 gross profit margin to be lower than fiscal 2019 gross profit margin relating to the continued impact of product and margin shift, tariffs and investment into warehousing and distribution infrastructure to support growth. There will be little or no effect of the tariffs on fiscal 2019 gross margin. Going into Fiscal 2020, the 10% tariff is being mitigated in total dollars but will have impact on margin percent.

Selling, general and administrative expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $7.2 million, or 59.8%, to $19.3 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $12.1 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily related to an increase in employment costs of $0.8 million, $1.1 million of increased rent associated with our net addition of 11 showrooms, $3.1 million of expenses related to the increase in sales such as $0.8 million of credit card fees, $0.6 million of showroom and web related selling expenses, $0.3 million of web affiliate program and web platform hosting commissions and $1.4 million of shop in shop sales agent fees. Overhead expenses increased $1.3 million to support company initiatives and public company expenses, stock-based compensation increased $0.5 million and $0.2 million of expenses were related to capital raises.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were 46.4% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to 49.6% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses of 3.2% of net sales and was driven largely by leverage in employment costs and rent expense. The leverage in these expenses was partially offset by increases in stock compensation, public company costs, infrastructure investments and IPO and other financing initiative costs.

 

We expect to leverage total selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales as sales volumes continue to grow. We expect to invest in infrastructure over the next 18 months to support the Company’s growth. These investments will lessen the impact of expense leveraging during the period of investment with the greater impact of expense leveraging happening after the period of investment.

 

Marketing

 

Marketing expenses increased $2.4 million, or 84.6%, to $5.2 million in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $2.8 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in marketing costs relates to increased media and direct to consumer programs which are expected to drive revenue beyond the period of the expense. We expect to continue to maintain our marketing investments at 10%-12% on an annual basis. The investment by quarter may vary greatly. Marketing expenses were 12.4% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to 11.5% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in marketing expenses of 0.9% of net sales was driven largely by the investment in Labor Day national advertising this fiscal year.

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased $0.3 million or 29.7% in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 to $1.1 million compared to $0.8 million in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense related to capital investments for new and remodeled showrooms.  

 

Interest income (expense), net

 

Interest income (expense), net reflects $0.2 million of earnings related to the net proceeds from the IPO partially offset by an immaterial amount of interest expense related to unused line fees on the Company’s line of credit for the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018. The decrease in interest expense from prior year was the result of no borrowings under the line of credit and interest income earned on the net proceeds from the initial public offering.

 

Income tax expense

 

There was no income tax expense related to the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017.

First Thirty-Nine Weeks of Fiscal 2019 Compared to the First Thirty-Nine of Fiscal 2018

 

Net sales

 

Net sales increased $38.9 million, or 62.0 %, to $101.7 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $62.8 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in net sales is primarily due to an increase in new customers, which grew by 34.2% in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to 52.7% in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017 and was accompanied by an increase in the total number of units sold by approximately 192,633, which reflects a higher average order volume per customer. We had 77 and 64 showrooms open as of November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017, respectively. We opened 13 additional showrooms and closed two showrooms in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018. Showrooms sales increased $20.3 million, or 41.3%, to $69.6 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to $49.3 million in thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. This increase was due in large part to our comparable showroom sales increase of $14.6 million, or 33.2%, to $58.6 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $44.0 million in thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. Retail sales per selling square foot increased $187, or 23%, to $1,009 in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $822 in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. Internet sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) increased $7.6 million, or 73.6%, to $17.8 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $10.3 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. We believe that the increase in both showroom and Internet sales was due primarily to our customers’ favorable reaction to our Sactionals products, the opening of additional showrooms, the redesign of our showrooms and our increased marketing initiatives. Other sales, which include shop in shop sales, increased $11.0 million, or 341.6%, to $14.3 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 as compared to $3.2 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. This increase was due in large part to our increase in the use of shop in shops. We expect to continue to experience healthy growth in net sales and Internet sales to increase as a percentage of total sales.

 

Gross profit

 

Gross profit increased $21.1 million, or 61.5%, to $55.4 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 from $34.3 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. Gross margin slightly decreased to 54.4% of net sales in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 from 54.6% of net sales in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The decrease in gross margin percentage of 0.2% was driven primarily as the result of channel and product mix with shop in shop sales and sactional sales increasing as a percent to total sales. Both carry a lower margin than our other channels and products. Although shop in shop sales carry a lower gross margin, these sales are media amplifiers and create brand awareness which have an overall positive impact to the Company. Our sactional products continue to be the largest growing product category for Lovesac. Freight costs are slightly higher as a percentage of net sales due to increased selling activities through our ecommerce and our other channel. partially due to the channel mix shop in shop sales increasing as a percentage to total sales. The decrease in gross margin was partially offset by reduced costs of our Sactionals and Sacs products. The decrease in costs of our Sactionals and Sacs products was primarily related to cost savings from a change in the sourcing of our Lovesoft and down blend fills.

  

Fiscal 2019 gross profit margin will be slightly, but not materially, lower than fiscal 2018 gross profit margin. Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2020 gross profit margin to be lower than fiscal 2019 gross profit margin relating to the continued impact of product and margin shift, tariffs and investment into warehousing and distribution infrastructure to support growth. There will be little or no effect of the tariffs on fiscal 2019 gross margin. Going into Fiscal 2020, the 10% tariff is being mitigated in total dollars but will have impact on margin percent.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $20.4 million, or 59.0%, to $55.0 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $34.6 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily related to an increase in employment costs of $2.7 million, $3.0 million of increased rent associated with our net addition of 11 showrooms, and $8.3 million of expenses related to the increase in sales such as credit card fees of $1.7 million, web affiliate program and web hosting program commissions of $0.7 million, shop in shop sales agent fees of $4.6 million and $1.3 million of utility and repairs expenses, $1.1 million increase in overhead expense to support overhead initiatives and public company expenses, stock based compensation of $2.3 million, sponsor fees of $1.3 million, equity raise expenses of $1.2 million and $0.5 million of secondary offering expenses.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were 54.1% of net sales in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to 55.1% of net sales in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses of 1.0% of net sales was driven primarily by leverage in employment costs and rent expense. The leverage in these expenses was partially offset by increases in stock compensation, public company costs, infrastructure investments and IPO and other financing initiative costs.

 

We expect to leverage total selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales as sales volumes continue to grow. We expect to invest in infrastructure over the next 18 months to support the Company’s growth. These investments will lessen the impact of expense leveraging during the period of investment with the greater impact of expense leveraging happening after the period of investment.

 

Marketing

 

Marketing expenses increased $7.4 million, or 128%, to $13.2 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to $5.8 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in marketing costs relates to increased media and direct to consumer programs which are expected to drive revenue beyond the period of the expense. We expect to continue to maintain our marketing investments at 10%-12% on an annual basis. The investment by quarter may vary greatly.

 

Marketing expenses were 12.9% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended November 4, 2018 compared to 9.2% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in marketing expenses of 3.7% of net sales was driven largely by the investment in marketing initiatives this fiscal including Labor Day national advertising.

 

22

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased $1.0 million or 65.2%% in the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 to $2.5 million compared to $1.5 million in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2017. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense related to capital investments for new and remodeled showrooms.

 

Interest income (expense), net

 

Interest income (expense), net of $0.1 million reflects earnings related to the net proceeds from the IPO of $0.3 million partially offset by a decrease of $0.2 million in interest expense for the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018. The decrease in interest expense from prior year was the result of no borrowings under the line of credit and interest income earned on the net proceeds from the initial public offering.

 

Income tax expense

 

There was no income tax expense related to the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018 and October 29, 2017.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

General

 

Our business relies on cash flows from operations, our revolving line of credit (see “Revolving Line of Credit” below) and securities issuances as our primary sources of liquidity. Our primary cash needs are for marketing and advertising, inventory, payroll, showroom rent, capital expenditures associated with opening new showrooms and updating existing showrooms, as well as infrastructure and information technology. The most significant components of our working capital are cash and cash equivalents, inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable and other current liabilities and customer deposits. When borrowing, our borrowings generally increase in our third fiscal quarter as we prepare for the holiday selling season, which is in our fourth fiscal quarter. We believe that cash expected to be generated from operations and cash generated from the IPO are sufficient to meet working capital requirements and anticipated capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in conformity with GAAP. Certain accounting policies and estimates are particularly important to the understanding of our financial position and results of operations and require the application of significant judgment by our management or can be materially affected by changes from period to period in economic factors or conditions that are outside of our control. As a result, they are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty. In applying these policies, management uses their judgment to determine the appropriate assumptions to be used in the determination of certain estimates. Those estimates are based on our historical operations, our future business plans and projected financial results, the terms of existing contracts, observance of trends in the industry, information provided by our customers and information available from other outside sources, as appropriate. Please see Note 1 to our audited consolidated financial statements included in the Prospectus, dated June 26, 2018, and filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, for a complete description of our significant accounting policies. There have been no material changes to the significant accounting policies during the thirty-nine weeks ended November 4, 2018.

  

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-14, which defers the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) by one year. ASU 2014-09 is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model requiring a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount reflecting the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. As a result, ASU 2015-14 is now effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018, which for the Company is, fiscal 2020. Earlier application is permitted. The Company is in the process of determining how this update will impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) amending lease guidance to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, which for the Company is fiscal 2021, with early adoption permitted. Management is currently evaluating the impact ASU No. 2016-02 will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In March 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718). ASU 2016-09 simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. Some of the simplified areas apply only to nonpublic entities. ASU 2016-09 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted in any interim or annual period. If an entity early adopts ASU 2016-09 in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. Methods of adoption vary according to each of the amendment provisions. Management has early adopted this standard in fiscal 2018 and applied its provisions as they relate to the restricted stock units, see Note 8.

 

In August 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Clarification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which eliminates the diversity in practice related to classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows, by adding or clarifying guidance on eight specific cash flow issues. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, which for the Company is, fiscal 2020. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company has not yet determined the effect of the adoption of ASU 2016-15 on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto going forward.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11, “Earnings Per Share (Topic 260) Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815),” which addresses the complexity of accounting for certain financial instruments with down round features. Down round features are features of certain equity-linked instruments (or embedded features) that result in the strike price being reduced on the basis of the pricing of future equity offerings. Current accounting guidance creates cost and complexity for entities that issue financial instruments (such as warrants and convertible instruments) with down round features that require fair value measurement of the entire instrument or conversion option. The amendments in Part I of this Update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. The Company early adopted this ASU in fiscal 2018 and applied its provisions which allowed the Company to account for the warrants issued along with the preferred raise in fiscal 2018 as equity versus a liability, see Note 8.

No payments were made by us to directors, officers or persons owning 10% or more of our common stock or to their associates, or to our affiliates in connection with the IPO. There has been no material change in the use of proceeds as described in the Prospectus.
