Basis of Presentation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Pursuant to these rules and regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the annual audited consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of January 2, 2023 is derived from the Company’s audited financial statements as of that date. Because certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted, these consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended January 2, 2023 contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 2, 2023 (the “2022 Form 10-K”).
On July 28, 2022, our Board of Directors approved the change to a 52-53-week fiscal year ending on the Monday nearest to December 31 of each year in order to improve the alignment of financial and business processes following the acquisition of Anthony’s. Our first fiscal quarter of 2023 ended on April 3, 2023. Our current fiscal year will end on January 1, 2024. As of March 31, 2022, the BurgerFi brand operated on a calendar year-end and the Anthony’s brand operated on a 52-53-week fiscal year. Differences arising from the different fiscal period-ends were not deemed material for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements present the consolidated financial position, results from operations and cash flows of BurgerFi International, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All material balances and transactions between the entities have been eliminated in consolidation.
Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior year presentation to conform to the current year presentation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingencies at the date of the unaudited consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
New Accounting Pronouncements
The Company reviewed all recently issued accounting pronouncements and concluded that they were not applicable or not expected to have a significant impact on the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements.
Employer Retention Tax Credits
As of April 3, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $1.5 million of receivables related to the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Relief Act of 2020 included in prepaid expenses and other current assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
The Company routinely issues prepayments to landlords, insurers and vendors in the ordinary course of business. As of April 3, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $1.5 million and $0.9 million, respectively of prepayments included in prepaid expenses and other current assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Assets Held for Sale
The Company has classified assets held for sale in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets $1.5 million as of April 3, 2023 and $0.7 million as of January 2, 2023 of certain store property and equipment, and intangible assets that the Company expects to be sold within one year. Assets held for sale are reviewed each reporting period to ensure that the fair value less cost to sell exceeds the carrying value.
In February 2020, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement with an unrelated third party for the sale of substantially all of the assets used in connection with the operation of BF Dania Beach, LLC. The closing of this transaction has been delayed due to additional negotiation that has been on-going. In the event the transaction is terminated, the Company will begin operating this BurgerFi restaurant, and return the deposit of $0.9 million included in other current assets to the unrelated third-party purchaser. Assets used in the operations of BF Dania Beach, LLC totaling $0.7 million have been classified as held for sale in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of April 3, 2023 and January 2,
2023. In March 2023, the Company approved a plan for sale of an intangible asset of an Anthony’s location with a carrying value of $0.8 million, which is classified as held for sale in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of April 3, 2023.
