Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
September 24, 2022 and September 25, 2021
 
(1) Basis of Presentation
 
Unless otherwise stated, references to the "Company," "we," "us," and "our" in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this "Quarterly Report") refer to Franchise Group, Inc. and its direct and indirect subsidiaries on a consolidated basis. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements of Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 25, 2021 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 23, 2022 (the “Form 10-K”).

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (including those of a normal recurring nature) necessary for a fair presentation of such condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP have been recorded. The December 25, 2021 balance sheet information was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date.

Repurchases of Common Stock

The Company's repurchases shares of its common stock through open market transactions. During the nine months ended September 24, 2022, all purchases of common stock under the Company's stock repurchase program were made at prices that exceeded the par value of the repurchased common stock, and the portions of the purchase prices that exceeded par value were charged to additional paid-in capital to the extent that an excess was present. Once additional paid-in capital is fully depleted, remaining excess of cost over par value is charged to retained earnings. Refer to “Note 10. Equity & Stock Compensation Plans” in this Quarterly Report for additional information regarding share repurchases.

Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU No. 2016-13, "Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments", which changes how companies will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that aren't measured at fair value through net income. The standard replaces the "incurred loss" approach with an "expected loss" model for instruments measured at amortized cost (which generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses) and requires companies to record allowances for available-for-sale debt securities, rather than reduce the carrying amount. In addition, companies will have to disclose significantly more information, including information used to track credit quality by year of origination, for most financing receivables. The ASU should be applied as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the standard is effective. The ASU is effective for the Company for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2023. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment.” This standard eliminates Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Instead, an entity should compare the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit's fair value, not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. The Company early adopted the ASU in the quarter ended September 24, 2022. Refer to "Note 5. Goodwill and Intangible Assets" for the calculation of the Company's impairment test after the adoption of ASU 2017-04.

The London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") is scheduled to be discontinued on June 30, 2023. In an effort to address the various challenges created by such discontinuance, the FASB issued an amendment to existing guidance, ASU No. 2020-04 "Reference Rate Reform." The amended guidance is designed to provide relief from the accounting analysis and impacts that may otherwise be required for modifications to agreements (e.g. loans, debt securities, derivatives, borrowings) necessitated by the reference rate reform. It also provides option expedients to enable companies to continue to apply hedge accounting to certain hedging relationships impacted by the reference rate reform. As further described in "Note 7. Long-Term Obligations", the Company entered into an amendment to a debt agreement which changed the reference rate from LIBOR to Secured Overnight Financing Rate ("SOFR"). The adoption of ASU 2020-04 did not result in a material impact to the Company's financial results or disclosures.

(2) Acquisitions

The Company continually looks to diversify and grow its portfolio of brands through acquisitions. On September 27, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition (the "Sylvan Acquisition") of Sylvan Learning ("Sylvan"), and on November 22, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition (the "Badcock Acquisition" and, together with the Sylvan Acquisition "the “Acquisitions”) of W.S. Badcock Corporation ("Badcock").

Badcock Acquisition

On November 22, 2021, the Company completed the Badcock Acquisition. The preliminary fair value of the consideration transferred at the acquisition date was $548.8 million. For the nine months ended September 24, 2022, $0.8 million of acquisition fees had been incurred that are recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses.

The table below summarizes the unaudited preliminary estimates of the fair values of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Badcock Acquisition on November 22, 2021. The preliminary estimates of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed are subject to revisions, which may result in an adjustment to the preliminary values presented below. In the nine months ended September 24, 2022, the preliminary estimates of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed were adjusted, which resulted in an increase to the bargain purchase gain of $3.5 million. The increase was primarily due to the valuation of the property, plant, and equipment partially offset by an increase in other long-term liabilities for deferred taxes. The Company expects to complete the purchase price allocation as soon as reasonably possible but not to exceed one year from the date of completion of the Badcock Acquisition.

Bargain purchase gain(135,557)
Consideration transferred$548,785 

Operating lease right-of-use assets of $55.6 million and operating and lease liabilities of $51.7 million, consist of leases for retail store locations, warehouses and office equipment.

Property, plant, and equipment consists of fixtures and equipment of $93.0 million, buildings and building improvements of $98.0 million, land and land improvements of $33.4 million, leasehold improvements of $23.7 million, and construction in progress of $1.4 million.

During the nine months ended September 24, 2022, the preliminary estimates of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed were adjusted, which resulted in a $3.5 million increase to the bargain purchase gain for a
9


cumulative bargain purchase gain of $135.6 million. The adjustment is classified as "Bargain purchase gain" on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company believes the seller in the Badcock Acquisition was willing to accept a bargain purchase price in return for the Company's ability to act more quickly, partially due to the Company's access to capital to complete the transaction, and with greater certainty than any other prospective acquirer. Additionally, the Company believes the seller in the Badcock Acquisition was motivated to complete the transaction as part of an overall repositioning of its business. Upon completion of this reassessment, the Company concluded that recording a bargain purchase gain with respect to the Badcock Acquisition was appropriate and required under GAAP. The tax impact related to the bargain purchase gain was non-taxable and impacted the Company's effective tax rate for the period.

Sylvan Acquisition

On September 27, 2021, the Company completed the Sylvan Acquisition. The fair value of the consideration transferred at the acquisition date was $82.9 million.

The table below summarizes the fair values of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Sylvan Acquisition on September 27, 2021.

Property, plant and equipment consists of fixtures and equipment of $0.3 million, leasehold improvements of $0.7 million, and software and electronic content of $25.3 million.

Goodwill is calculated as the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired. The goodwill recognized is attributable to operational synergies in the expected franchise models and growth opportunities. None of the acquired goodwill is deductible for tax purposes.

Pet Supplies Plus Acquisition

On March 10, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition of Pet Supplies Plus. Goodwill is calculated as the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired. The goodwill recognized is attributable to operational synergies in the expected franchise models and growth opportunities. All of the acquired goodwill is deductible for tax purposes.

Wag N' Wash Acquisition

On February 22, 2022, the Company's Pet Supplies Plus segment completed the acquisition of Wag N' Wash, an emerging natural pet food, self-wash, and grooming franchise, for an all cash purchase price of $0.9 million, and five of the Wag N' Wash stores were subsequently sold to a franchisee for $0.6 million. The components of the purchase price allocation are not presented herein due to the immateriality of the transaction to the Company overall.

Pro forma financial information
The following unaudited consolidated pro forma summary has been prepared by adjusting the Company's historical data to give effect to the Acquisitions as if they had occurred on January 1, 2020.

These unaudited pro forma results include adjustments such as inventory step-up, amortization of acquired intangible assets, depreciation of acquired property, equipment, and software and interest expense on debt financing in connection with the Acquisitions. Material, nonrecurring pro forma adjustments directly attributable to the Acquisitions include:

Acquired inventory step-up to its fair value of $2.3 million is assumed to be recorded in the first quarter of 2020 and therefore removed from the nine months ended September 25, 2021.

Acquisition transaction related costs of $4.9 million that were incurred during the nine months ended September 25, 2021 are assumed to have occurred on the pro forma close date of January 1, 2020, and recognized as if incurred in the first quarter of 2020.

The unaudited consolidated pro forma financial information was prepared in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations that would have occurred if the Acquisitions had been completed on the date indicated, nor is it indicative of the future operating results of the Company.

The unaudited pro forma results do not reflect events that either have occurred or may occur after the Acquisitions, including, but not limited to, the anticipated realization of operating synergies in subsequent periods. They also do not give effect to certain charges that the Company expects to incur in connection with the acquisition, including, but not limited to, additional professional fees and employee integration.




(3) Divestitures
