Accounting Policies [Abstract]  



The condensed consolidated balance sheet of The Lovesac Company (the “Company”) as of February 2, 2020, which has been derived from our audited financial statements as of and for the 52-week year ended February 2, 2020, 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 Company’s consolidated financial statements filed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2020.


Due to the seasonality of the Company’s business, with the majority of our activity occurring in the fourth quarter of each fiscal year, the results of operations for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 2, 2020 and August 4, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year.


The Company is a technology driven company that designs, manufactures and sells unique, high quality furniture derived through its proprietary “Designed for Life” approach which results in products that are built to last a lifetime and designed to evolve as our customers’ lives do. The Company markets and sells its products through modern and efficient showrooms and, increasingly, through online sales primarily online directly at www.lovesac.com, supported by direct-to-consumer touch-feel points in the form of our own showrooms as well as through shop-in-shops and pop-up-shops with third party retailers. The Company was formed as a Delaware corporation on January 3, 2017, in connection with a corporate reorganization with SAC Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SAC LLC”), the predecessor entity to the Company.


In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global pandemic, and, in the following weeks, many U.S. states and localities issued lockdown orders impacting consumer demand. Since then, the COVID-19 situation within the U.S. has rapidly escalated. On March 18, 2020, the Company closed all showroom locations. All showrooms have since reopened in some format, many still virtual or by appointment only. The Company has and will continue to follow the guidance of federal, state, and local governments, as well as health organizations, to determine the operating status of its showrooms. Additionally, the Company implemented a reduction in workforce of approximately 447 part time employees (representing 57% of our total headcount) as well as a temporary reduction in executive cash compensation. Cash compensation was reduced by 20% for Shawn Nelson, Chief Executive Officer, Jack Krause, President and Chief Operating Officer, and Donna Dellomo, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. The base salaries of all other senior management and full-time headquarter team members has been temporarily reduced by graduated amounts. The Company’s Board of Directors has also agreed to a temporary reduction of its retainer and monitoring fees and an extension of the associated payment timeline. As of August 2, 2020, we have hired 137 part time showroom associates to assist with showroom sales. The Company continues to monitor the situation closely and it is possible that the Company will implement further measures.


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, opening new showrooms, and investments into advertising, marketing and infrastructure to support increases in revenues. The Company plans to continue to open new retail showrooms in larger markets and increase its shop-in-shop relationships to increase sales levels and invest in advertising and marketing initiatives to increase brand awareness. Of course, there can be no assurance that anticipated sales levels will be achieved. The Company believes that based on its current sales and expense levels, projections for the next twelve months, current cash on hand and the credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, see Note 7, the Company will have sufficient working capital to cover operating cash needs through the twelve month period from the financial statement issuance date.
