Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other legal authority, which statements may 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.

 

You should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. We cannot assure you that the events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur at all or on a specified timeframe. The cautionary statements set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including in Part I – Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and elsewhere, identify important factors which you should consider in evaluating our forward-looking statements. These factors include, among other things:

 

 our ability to sustain recent growth rates;

 

 our ability to sustain the recent increase in our Internet sales;

 

 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;

 

 the impact of any systems interruptions that impair customer access to our sites or other performance failures in our technology infrastructure;

 

 any decline in consumer spending including due to negative impact from economic conditions;

 

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

 

 the effect and consequences of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) public health crisis on our business operations and continuity.

 

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 sections entitled “Risk Factors” and in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and 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 at all or on a specified timeline, 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

CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THIRTEEN WEEKS ENDED MAY 2, 2021 AND MAY 3, 2020

 

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheet of The Lovesac Company (the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”) as of January 31, 2021, which has been derived from our audited financial statements as of and for the 52-week year ended January 31, 2021, 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 January 31, 2021.

 

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 weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

 

Nature of Operations

 

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 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.

 

COVID-19

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global pandemic and, in the following weeks, the U.S. federal, state and local governments issued lockdown orders and related safety measures impacting the operations of our showrooms and consumer demand. Although there has been a general improvement in conditions, there continues to be significant uncertainties around the scope and severity of the pandemic, its impact on the global economy, including supply chains, and other business disruptions that may impact our operating results and financial condition. We continue to follow the guidance issued by federal, state and local governments and health organizations and have taken measures to protect the safety of our associates and customers.

 

Operations and Liquidity

 

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. 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, National Association, 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.

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.

 

The following new accounting pronouncements were adopted in fiscal 2022:

 

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. 2020-05 extended the effective date to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted the guidance in fiscal 2022 and there was not a material effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations.

 

Adoption of this standard resulted in the recognition of operating lease right-to-use (“ROU”) assets and corresponding lease liabilities of approximately $90 million and $97 million, respectively, and reclassification of deferred rent of $6.7 million as a reduction of the right-of-use assets on the consolidated balance sheet as of February 1, 2021. The new standard also provides practical expedients for an entity’s ongoing accounting. We elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. This means, for those leases that qualify, we will not recognize ROU assets or lease liabilities, and this includes not recognizing ROU assets or lease liabilities for existing short-term leases of those assets in transition. We also elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for all of our leases.

Thereafter  313,500

1,192,568
 

 

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 provision or benefit on its operating income or losses for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020.

 

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. The Company had no material interest or penalties during the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, respectively, and the Company does 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 INCOME (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (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. In the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, the effects of 652,052 unvested restricted stock units, 495,366 stock options and 291,598 common stock warrants were included in the diluted share calculation.

NOTE 6 - COMMITMENTS, CONTINGENCY AND RELATED PARTIES

 

Leases

 

The Company leases its office, warehouse facilities and retail showrooms under operating lease agreements which expire at various dates through June 2031. The Company determines if a contract contains a lease at inception based on our right to control the use of an identified asset and our right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of that identified asset. Certain operating leases have renewal options and rent escalation clauses. We assess these options to determine if we are reasonably certain of exercising these options based on all relevant economic and financial factors. Any options that meet these criteria are included in the lease term at lease commencement.

 

Lease right-of-use assets represent the right to use an underlying asset pursuant to the lease for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement of an arrangement where it is determined at inception that a lease exists. These assets and liabilities are initially recognized based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term calculated using our incremental borrowing rate generally applicable to the location of the lease right-of-use asset, unless an implicit rate is readily determinable. We combine lease and certain non-lease components for our showroom real estate leases in determining the lease payments subject to the initial present value calculation. Lease right-of-use assets include upfront lease payments and exclude lease incentives, where applicable. Lease terms include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that those options will be exercised.

 

Lease expense for operating leases consists of both fixed and variable components. Expense related to fixed lease payments are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Variable lease payments are generally expensed as incurred, where applicable, and include certain index-based changes in rent, certain non-lease components, such as maintenance and other services provided by the lessor, and other charges included in the lease. Leases with an initial term of twelve months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. In addition, certain of our equipment lease agreements include variable lease payments, which are based on the usage of the underlying asset. The variable portion of payments are not included in the initial measurement of the asset or lease liability due to uncertainty of the payment amount and are recorded as lease expense in the period incurred.

 

ASC 842 requires companies to use the rate implicit in the lease whenever that rate is readily determinable and if the interest rate is not readily determinable, then a lessee may use its incremental borrowing rate. Most of our leases do not have an interest rate implicit in the lease. As a result, for purposes of measuring our ROU asset and lease liability, we determined our incremental borrowing rate by computing the rate of interest that we would have to pay to (i) borrow on a collateralized basis (ii) over a similar term (iii) at an amount equal to the total lease payments and (iv) in a similar economic environment. We used the incremental borrowing rates we determined as of February 1, 2021 for operating leases that commenced prior to that date. In the case an interest rate is implicit in a lease we will use that rate as the discount rate for that lease. The lease term for all of our lease arrangements include the noncancelable period of the lease plus, if applicable, any additional periods covered by an option to extend the lease that is reasonably certain to be exercised by the Company. Our leases generally do not include termination options for either party to the lease or restrictive financial or other covenants. Some of our leases contain variable lease payments based on a Consumer Price Index or percentage of sales, which are excluded from the measurement of the lease liability.

Equity Incentive Plans

 

The Company adopted the 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Equity Plan”) which provides for awards in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, performance shares, performance units, cash-based awards and other stock-based Awards. All awards shall be granted within 10 years from the effective date of the 2017 Equity Plan.

Stock options

 

In June 2019, the Company granted 495,366 non-statutory stock options to certain officers of the Company with an option price of $38.10 per share. 100% of the stock options are subject to vesting on the first trading day after the date on which the average closing price of the Company’s common stock has been at least $75 for 40 consecutive trading days so long as this goal has been attained by June 5, 2024 or the options will terminate. These options were valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model to account for the path dependent market conditions that stipulate when and whether or not the options shall vest. The 495,366 stock options were modified in fiscal 2021 to extend the term of the options through June 5, 2024. This resulted in additional compensation of approximately $874,000, of which, $315,000 was recorded upon modification and the remaining expense was recognized over the remaining expected term.

NOTE 11 - BARTER ARRANGEMENTS

 

The Company has a bartering arrangement with Icon International, Inc. (“Icon”), a vendor, whereby the Company will provide inventory in exchange for media credits During fiscal 2021, the Company exchanged $3,169,825 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 account of $2,937,035 which is included in “Prepaid and other current assets” on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. During the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company used $544,323 in media credits. There were no additional barter arrangements entered into in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021. The Company had $1,976,948 and $2,521,271 of unused media credits remaining as of May 2, 2021 and January 31, 2021, respectively.

 

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. Revenue associated with barter transactions is recorded at the time of the exchange of the related assets.

 

NOTE 12 - REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company’s revenue consists substantially of product sales. The Company reports product sales net of discounts and recognizes them at the point in time when control transfers to the customer, which occurs upon shipment is confirmed.

 

Estimated refunds for returns and allowances are recorded using our historical return patterns, adjusting for any changes in returns policies. The Company records estimated refunds for net sales returns on a monthly basis as a reduction of net sales and cost of sales on the condensed consolidated statement of operations and an increase in inventory and customers returns liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of May 2, 2021, and January 31, 2021 there was a returns allowance recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet in the amount $1,109,023 and $2,226,723 respectively, which was included in accrued expenses and $219,405 and $334,896, respectively, associated with sales returns included in merchandise inventories.

In some cases, deposits are received before the Company transfers control, resulting in contract liabilities. These contract liabilities are reported as deposits on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet. As of May 2, 2021, and January 31, 2021, the Company recorded under customer deposit liabilities the amount of $7,843,326 and $5,992,633 respectively. During the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, the Company recognized approximately $5,992,633 and $1,653,597, respectively, related to our customer deposits.

 

Under ASC 606, the Company has elected the following accounting policies and practical expedients:

 

The Company recognizes shipping and handling expense as fulfillment activities (rather than as a promised good or service) when the activities are performed even if those activities are performed after the control of the good has been transferred. Accordingly, the Company records the expenses for shipping and handling activities at the same time the Company recognizes revenue.

 

The Company excludes from the measurement of the transaction price all taxes imposed on and concurrent with a specific revenue-producing transaction and collected by the entity from a customer, including sales, use, excise, value-added, and franchise taxes (collectively referred to as sales taxes).

 

The Company does not adjust revenue for the effects of any financing components if the contract has a duration of one year or less, as the Company receives payment from the customer within one year from when it transferred control of the related goods.

 

The Company offers its products through an inventory lean omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to its customers in showrooms and through the internet. The other channel predominantly represents sales through the use of pop-up-shops that typically average ten days at a time and are staffed with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our product. The following represents sales disaggregated by channel:

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. As discussed in the section titled “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 sections titled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

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 company that designs, manufactures and sells unique, high quality furniture derived through our proprietary Designed for Life philosophy which results in products that are built to last a lifetime and designed to evolve as our customers’ lives do. Our current product offering is comprised of modular couches called Sactionals, premium foam beanbag chairs called Sacs, and their associated home decor accessories. Innovation is at the center of our design philosophy with all of our core products protected by a robust portfolio of utility patents. We market and sell our products 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. We believe that our ecommerce centric approach, coupled with our ability to deliver our large upholstered products through express couriers, is 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. 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. Sales of this product were $7.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $9.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The decrease was related to less promotional activity in fiscal 2022 as compared to the first quarter of last year.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global pandemic and, in the following weeks, the U.S. federal, state and local governments issued lockdown orders and related safety measures impacting the operations of our showrooms and consumer demand. Although there has been a general improvement in conditions, there continues to be significant uncertainties around the scope and severity of the pandemic, its impact on the global economy, including supply chain, and other business disruptions that may impact our operating results and financial condition. We continue to follow the guidance issued by federal, state and local governments and health organizations and have taken measures to protect the safety of our associates and customers, including frequent cleaning of our showrooms and offices, offering remote work opportunities, adopting appropriate social distancing protocols, using personal protective equipment, in-store protective plexiglass barriers, touchless transactions and other measures.

 

16

 

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic led to shifts in the way in which we operated in fiscal 2021, including temporarily closures of all of our showroom locations, a reduction in workforce and a temporary reduction in compensation payable to our associates and directors, we continued to serve our customers through our online channels as our products can be easily configured, shopped online and delivered quickly in a touchless way, coupled with consumers’ demand for home related products and solutions. As our showrooms are now fully reopened, we continue to experience growth as our net sales increased $28.5 million, or 52.5%, to $82.9 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, compared to $54.4 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. Retail sales drove an increase of $30.9 million, or 170.4%, to $49.0 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 compared to $18.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 mainly due to COVID-19 related closures of all our showroom locations in the prior year period which more than offset the decrease in our internet sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) of $4.9 million, or 16.3% in the same time periods. New customers increased by 2.3% for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 as compared to 57.7% for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 due to large number of new internet customers acquired related to the Heroes campaign and the temporary closures of all showroom locations.

 

Although all of our showrooms reopened to the public in fiscal 2021, we believe that the pandemic has contributed to an acceleration in the shift of commerce to online sales which resulted in an increase in sales on our ecommerce platform and a slight decline in showroom sales in fiscal 2021. Due to the significant growth of our ecommerce platform, we have adapted our systems, technology and supply chain and logistics capabilities to manage the increase in online demand. We plan to continue to develop our digital capabilities and invest in our technological infrastructure, however, it is possible that this increased ecommerce demand may not continue in future periods. We continue to monitor changes in the retail landscape resulting from COVID-19 and take actions necessary to support our business growth and strategy.

 

Product Overview

 

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. They are built to last and evolve throughout a customer’s life.

 

Sactionals. Our Sactional product line currently represents a majority of our net sales. 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 their geometry and modularity, coupling mechanisms and other features. Utilizing only two, standardized pieces, “seats” and “sides,” and approximately 200 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, storage 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. Our Sactionals represented 89.3% of our sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, or $74.0 million, as compared to 80.6% of our sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020, or $43.8 million.

 

Sacs. We believe that our Sacs product line is a category leader in oversized beanbags.

Sales Channels

 

We offer our products through an omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to our customers online and in-store. Our distribution strategy allows us to reach customers through four distinct, brand-enhancing channels.

 

Ecommerce. Through our ecommerce channel, we believe we are able to significantly enhance the consumer shopping experience for home furnishings, driving deeper brand engagement and loyalty, while also realizing more favorable margins than our showroom locations. We believe our robust technological capabilities position us well to benefit from the growing consumer preference to transact at home and via mobile devices. With furniture especially suited to ecommerce applications, our net sales completed through this channel accounted for 30.4% of total net sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, down from 55.3% for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020, as our showrooms have fully reopened.

 

Showrooms. We market and sell our products through 116 showrooms at top tier malls, lifestyle centers and street locations in 37 states in the U.S. We carefully select the best small-footprint retail locations in high-end malls and lifestyle centers for our showrooms. Compared to traditional retailers, our showrooms require significantly less square footage because of our need to have only a few in-store sample configurations for display and our ability to stack our inventory for immediate sale. The architecture and layout of these showrooms is designed to communicate our brand personality and key product features. Our goal is to educate first-time customers, creating an environment where people can touch, feel, read, and understand the technology behind our products. We are updating and remodeling many of our showrooms to reflect our new showroom concept, which emphasizes our unique product platform, and will be the standard for future showrooms. Our new showroom concept utilizes technology in more experiential ways to increase traffic and sales.

 

Other touchpoints. We augment our showrooms with other touchpoint strategies including in store pop-up- shops and shop-in-shops. We utilize in store pop-up-shops to increase the number of locations where customers can experience and purchase our products, a low cost alternative to drive brand awareness, in store sales, and ecommerce sales. These in store pop-up-shops are staffed similarly to our showrooms with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our products and promote our brand. Unlike the in store pop-up-shops which are typically 10-day shows, and pop-up locations, shop-in-shops are designed to be in permanent locations carrying the same digital technology of our showrooms and are also staffed with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our products. Shop-in-shops require less capital expenditure to open a productive space to drive brand awareness and touchpoint opportunities for demonstrating and selling our products. We hosted 0 and 135 pop-up-shops at Costco locations for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, respectively. We operated 2 temporary online pop-ups on Costco.com and operated 4 shop-in-shops at Best Buy locations and online at BestBuy.com for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021. We expect to continue hosting temporary online pop-ups on Costco.com and do not currently expect any further contribution from Costco in store pop-up-shops. Other sales which includes pop-up-shop sales and shop-in-shop sales accounted for 10.6% and 11.4% of our total sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, respectively.

(2)

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are “Non-GAAP Measures” that 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.

 

These Non-GAAP Measures 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 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.

 

20

 

 

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.

 

(3)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 management 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.

 

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The following provides a reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:

(a)Represents management fees and expenses charged by our equity sponsors.

 

(b)Represents the difference between rent expense recorded and the amount paid by the Company. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the Company records monthly rent expense equal to the total of the payments due over the lease term, divided by the number of months of the lease terms. The Company adopted ASC 842 at the beginning of fiscal 2022 therefore we no longer recognize deferred rent.

 

(c)Represents expenses associated with stock options and restricted stock units granted to our associates and board of directors.

 

(d)There were no other non-recurring expenses in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021. Other non-recurring expenses in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 are made up of $36 in professional and legal fees related to financing initiatives.

How We Assess the Performance of Our Business

 

We consider a variety of financial and operating measures, including the following, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions.

 

Net Sales

 

Net sales reflect our sale of merchandise plus shipping and handling revenue less returns and discounts. Sales made at Company operated showrooms, including shop-in-shops and pop-up-shops, and via the web are recognized in accordance with the guidance set forth in ASC 606, which is typically at the point of transference of title when the when the goods are shipped.

 

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. In September 2018, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative began imposing a 10 percent ad valorem duty on a subset of products imported from China, inclusive of various furniture product categories. In September 2019, the Office of U.S. Trade Representative imposed an additional 15 percent ad valorem duty on products imported from China.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses include all operating costs, other than advertising and 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, equity- based compensation, financing related expense and public company expenses. 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 continue to invest in infrastructure 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. However, total selling, general and administrative expenses generally will leverage during the periods of investments with the most deleverage occurring in the first three quarters of the fiscal year, and the greatest leverage occurring in the fourth quarter.

 

Advertising and Marketing Expenses

 

Advertising and marketing expense include digital, social, and traditional advertising and marketing initiatives that cover all of our business channels. Advertising and marketing expense will continue to increase as a percentage to sales as we continue to invest in advertising and marketing which has accelerated sales growth.

Thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 compared to the Thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020

 

Net Sales

 

Net sales increased $28.5 million, or 52.5%, to $82.9 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 as compared to $54.4 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The increase in overall net sales is primarily driven by our Showroom sales, Other sales and partially offset by a decrease in our Internet sales. Showrooms net sales increased $30.9 million, or 170.4%, to $49.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $18.1 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. This increase was due in large part to a $26.7 million increase in comparable showroom sales to $41.3 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 as compared to $14.6 million due to the temporary closures of all showroom locations in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. We had 116 and 91 showrooms as of May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, respectively. We opened 8 additional showrooms in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 as compared to temporarily closing 91 showrooms in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 due to COVID-19. Point of sales transactions represent orders placed through our showrooms which does not always reflect the point at which when control transfers to the customer, which occurs upon shipment being confirmed. See Note 12 to the condensed consolidated financial statements. We believe point of sales transactions is a more accurate way to measure showroom performance and how our showroom associates are incentivized. New customers increased by 2.3% in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 as compared to 57.7% in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 due to large number of new internet customers acquired related to the Heroes campaign and the temporary closures of all showroom locations in prior year period. Retail sales per selling square foot increased $268, or 129.5% to $475 compared to $207 in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. Total number of units sold at point of transaction increased by approximately 151.2% driven by higher comparable sales. Internet sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) decreased $4.9 million, or 16.3%, to $25.2 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $30.1 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The decrease in Internet sales was due to the shift of sales into the internet channel in prior year period as a result of the temporary showroom closures. Other sales, which include pop-up-shop sales and shop-in-shop sales increased $2.6 million, or 41.4%, to $8.8 million, as compared to $6.2 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 and is related to the prior year period closures of all pop-up-shop and shop-in-shop locations due to COVID-19.

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit increased $18.8 million, or 68.9%, to $46.1 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 from $27.3 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. Gross margin increased to 55.6% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 from 50.2% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The increase in gross margin percentage of 540 basis points was driven by a 400 basis points improvement in gross profit as a result of a reduction in promotional discounts, higher overall Sactional product category and premium covers mix impact, and lower product costs related to vendor negotiated tariff mitigation initiatives due to higher volume. Distribution expenses improved by 140 basis points over the prior year due to higher leverage of 490 basis points in warehousing and distribution costs, partially offset by the increase in inbound freight and freight capitalization of 350 basis points.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $4.9 million, or 18.9%, to $30.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $25.8 million in the prior year period. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily related to an increase in employment costs, rent and overhead expenses partially offset by a decrease in selling related expenses. Employment costs increase of $3.0 million was driven by an increase in new hires and variable compensation. Rent increased by $1.5 million due to our net addition of 8 showrooms. Overhead expenses increased $0.7 million consisting of an increase of $0.9 million in infrastructure investments and an increase in insurance expense of $0.1 million related to the growth of the company, partially offset by a decrease of $0.2 million in equity-based compensation and a decrease of $0.1 million in travel expenses related to COVID-19 restrictions. The decrease of $0.3 million in selling related expenses was due to a reduction of $1.1 million in in-store pop-up-shop fees, partially offset by an increase of $0.8 million in credit card fees.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were 37.0% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to 47.5% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses of 10.5% of net sales was due to higher leverage within infrastructure investments, selling related expenses, employment costs, rent, equity-based compensation, travel, and insurance.

 

Advertising and Marketing Expenses

 

Advertising and marketing expenses increased $2.5 million, or 30.3%, to $10.7 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $8.2 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The majority of the increase in advertising and marketing dollars relates to the reinstatement of marketing spends as showroom locations are fully open in the current period versus the temporary closures in the prior year period. The investment by quarter may vary greatly.

 

Advertising and marketing expenses were 12.9% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to 15.1% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The majority of the decrease in advertising and marketing as a percent of net sales was due to an increase in net sales driven by higher Sactional sales mix and reduction in promotional discounts for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to the prior year period.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased $0.8 million or 47.6% in the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, as compared to $0.6 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense principally relates to capital investments for new and remodeled showrooms.

 

Interest (Expense) Income, Net

 

Interest expense, net was less than $0.1 million which reflects less than $0.1 million expense related to the unused line fees and amortization of deferred financing fees on the asset-based loan for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021. The increase in interest income, net from prior year was the result of lower earnings related to continued operations and the net proceeds from primary share offering during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

Income tax provision was less than 0.2% of sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 and May 3, 2020, respectively.

 

24

 

 

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 advertising and marketing, 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. 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, the availability under our revolving line of credit and our existing cash balances are sufficient to meet working capital requirements and anticipated capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months.

The total amount of exposure to the Company under these agreements was $4,493,468 at May 2, 2021 if all executives with employment agreements were terminated without cause and the full amount of severance was payable.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no material off balance sheet arrangements as of May 2, 2021, except for operating leases and employment agreements entered in the ordinary course of business.

 

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 consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on April 14, 2021 for a complete description of our significant accounting policies. There have been no material changes to the significant accounting policies during the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Refer to Note 2, Recent Accounting Pronouncements, contained in the Condensed Consolidated Notes to Financial Statements in Item 1 of Part 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a full description of the recent accounting pronouncements and our expectation of their impact, if any, on our results of operations and financial condition.

 

26

 

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

In the normal course of business, we are exposed to a variety of risks, including fluctuations in interest rates that could affect our financial position and results of operations.

 

Interest Rate Risk

 

Debt

 

Interest rate risk exists primarily through our borrowing activities. We use U.S. dollar denominated borrowings to fund our working capital and investment needs. It is anticipated that the fair market value of any future debt under the line of credit will continue to be immaterially affected by fluctuations in interest rates and we do not believe that the value of such debt would be significantly impacted by current market events. Under the line of credit, the Company may elect that revolving loans bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the base rate plus the applicable margin or the LIBOR rate plus the applicable margin. The applicable margin is based on tier’s relating to the quarterly average excess availability. The tiers range from 2.00% to 2.25%. We currently do not engage in any interest rate hedging activity and we have no intention of doing so in the foreseeable future. A hypothetical 100 basis point change (up or down) in the one-month LIBOR rate would not have a material effect on our condensed consolidated results of operations.

 

LIBOR Transition

 

Borrowings under our revolving line of credit have an interest rate tied to LIBOR, which is the subject of recent national, international, and other regulatory guidance and proposals for reform. These reforms and other pressure may cause LIBOR to disappear entirely or to perform differently than in the past. It is expected that certain banks will stop reporting information used to set LIBOR at the end of 2021 when their reporting obligations cease. This will effectively end the usefulness of LIBOR and end its publication. If LIBOR is no longer available, or otherwise at our option, we will pursue alternative interest rate calculations in our Credit Agreement, including the use of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR). A number of other alternatives to LIBOR have been proposed or are being developed, but it is not clear which, if any, will be adopted. Any of these alternative methods may result in interest payments that are higher than expected or that do not otherwise correlate over time with the payments that would have been made on such indebtedness for the interest periods if the applicable LIBOR rate was available in its current form.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer (our principal executive officer) and Chief Financial Officer (our principal financial officer), has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on such evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time we may become involved in legal proceedings or be subject to claims arising in the ordinary course of our business. We are not presently a party to any legal proceedings that, if determined adversely to us, would individually or taken together have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results, financial condition or cash flows. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on us because of defense and settlement costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

There have been no material changes to the risk factors previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2021.

In the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2021, 1,125 warrants with an exercise price of $16 per share were exercised on a cashless basis, resulting in the issuance of 856 common shares, and 1,250 warrants with an exercise price of $16 per share were exercised upon cash payment of the exercise price to the Company.
