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.


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.
