Basis of Presentation
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. The going concern assumption contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. However, as discussed below and elsewhere through this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern exists. Please see Part I, Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, as well as Risk Factors in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 2, 2023 (the “2022 Form 10-K”) and this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, for further information.
The Company’s credit agreement (“Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of banks has approximately $52.1 million in financing outstanding as of October 2, 2023, and expires on September 30, 2025. The Credit Agreement contains numerous covenants, including those whereby the Company is required to meet certain trailing twelve-month quarterly financial ratios and a minimum liquidity requirement. The Company was in compliance with all of the covenants under the Credit Agreement as of October 2, 2023.
Some of the financial covenants contained within the Credit Agreement require financial performance to improve at a rate faster than we have experienced and at a faster rate than we expect to experience over the next twelve months. As a result, management believes it is probable that the Company will not be in compliance with each of the financial covenants in the Credit Agreement over the next 12 months, which would constitute a breach of the Credit Agreement and an event of default if not cured in accordance with its terms. Any such default would allow the lenders to call the debt sooner than its maturity date of September 30, 2025. In the event that the lenders do call the debt during the next 12 months as the result of a covenant breach, the Company is not forecasted to have the readily available funds to repay the debt, which raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the consolidated financial statements are issued.
The Company has been and continues to be in communication with its lenders about potential options to address concerns related to meeting the covenant requirements over the next 12 months. Management cannot, however, predict the results of any such negotiations.
The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that results from the uncertainty described above.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with 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 condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 3, 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 condensed 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 2022 Form 10-K.
We are required to evaluate events occurring after October 2, 2023 for recognition and disclosure in the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the quarter and nine month periods ended October 2, 2023. Events are evaluated based on whether they represent information existing as of October 2, 2023, which require recognition, or new events occurring after October 2, 2023 which do not require recognition but require disclosure if the event is significant. We evaluated events occurring subsequent to October 2, 2023 through the date of issuance of these unaudited consolidated financial statements.
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 third fiscal quarter of 2023 ended on October 2, 2023. Our current fiscal year will end on January 1, 2024. As of October 3, 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 October 3, 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 October 2, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $0.1 million and $1.5 million, respectively, 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 October 2, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $0.8 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
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 on-going negotiations. 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 October 2, 2023 and January 2, 2023.
During the quarter ended October 2, 2023, the Company recognized $0.1 million in gain on sale of assets in other income, net on our consolidated statements of operations from the sale of a liquor license intangible asset for one of our closed Anthony’s locations with a book value of $0.8 million and classified as assets held for sale in a prior period.
Other Current Liabilities
The Company incurs liabilities associated with the sale of gift cards and gift certificates. As of October 2, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $0.8 million and $1.8 million, respectively of gift card and gift certificate liabilities included in other current liabilities on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
The Company incurs liabilities resulting from its customer loyalty program. As of October 2, 2023 and January 2, 2023, the Company had $0.9 million and $0.8 million, respectively of liabilities for its loyalty program in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
