Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This report includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws that involve risks and uncertainties concerning the business, products and financial results of Beyond Meat, Inc. (including its subsidiaries unless the context otherwise requires, “Beyond Meat,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”). We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current opinions, expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions and projections about future events and financial trends affecting the operating results and financial condition of our business. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events, and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to:
the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations, including on our supply chain, the demand for our products, our product and channel mix, labor needs at the Company as well as in the supply chain and at customers, the timing and level of retail purchasing, the timing and level of foodservice purchasing, our manufacturing and co-manufacturing facilities and operations, our inventory levels, our ability to expand and produce in new geographic markets or the timing of such expansion efforts, the pace and success of new product introductions, the timing of new foodservice launches, and on overall economic conditions and consumer confidence and spending levels;
the impact of uncertainty in our domestic and international supply chain, including labor shortages and disruption and shipping delays and disruption;
a resurgence of COVID-19 and the impact of variants of the virus that causes COVID-19, which could slow, halt or reverse the reopening process, or result in the reinstatement of social distancing measures, business closures, restrictions on operations, quarantines, lockdowns and travel bans;
the impact of inflation and rising interest rates across the economy, including higher food, grocery, raw materials, transportation, energy, labor and fuel costs;
reduced consumer confidence and changes in consumer spending, including spending to purchase our products, and negative trends in consumer purchasing patterns due to consumers’ disposable income, credit availability and debt levels, as well as due to recessionary and inflationary pressures;
factors negatively impacting demand in the plant-based meat category;
the effects of increased competition from our market competitors and new market entrants;
the impact of uncertainty as a result of doing business in China and Europe;
government or employer mandates requiring certain behaviors from employees due to COVID-19, including COVID-19 vaccine mandates, which could result in employee attrition at the Company, suppliers and customers as well as difficulty securing future labor and supply needs;
the impact of adverse and uncertain economic and political conditions in the U.S. and international markets, including due to an economic recession, downturn or periods of rising or high inflation;
the volatility of capital markets and other macroeconomic factors, including due to geopolitical tensions or the outbreak of hostilities or war;
foreign exchange rate fluctuations;
risks and uncertainties related to certain cost-reduction initiatives, workforce reductions, executive leadership changes, and the timing and success of achieving certain financial goals or cash flow positive targets;
our ability to streamline operations and improve cost efficiencies, which could result in the contraction of our business and the implementation of significant cost cutting measures such as downsizing and exiting certain operations, domestically and/or abroad;
our ability to identify and execute cost-down initiatives intended to achieve price parity with animal protein;
ii


the success of operations conducted by joint ventures, such as the Planet Partnership, LLC (“TPP”) with PepsiCo, Inc., where we share ownership and management of a company with one or more parties who may not have the same goals, strategies or priorities as we do and where we do not receive all of the financial benefit;
changes in the retail landscape, including the timing and level of trade and promotion discounts, our ability to maintain and grow market share and increase household penetration, repeat purchases, buying rates (amount spent per buyer) and purchase frequency, and our ability to maintain and increase sales velocity of our products;
changes in the foodservice landscape, including the timing and level of marketing and other financial incentives to assist in the promotion of our products, our ability to maintain and grow market share and attract and retain new foodservice customers or retain existing foodservice customers, and our ability to introduce and sustain offering of our products on menus;
the timing and success of distribution expansion and new product introductions in increasing revenues and market share;
the timing and success of strategic Quick Service Restaurant (“QSR”) partnership launches and limited time offerings resulting in permanent menu items;
our estimates of the size of our market opportunities and ability to accurately forecast market growth;
our ability to effectively expand or optimize our manufacturing and production capacity, including effectively managing capacity for specific products with shifts in demand;
risks associated with underutilization of capacity which could give rise to increased costs, underutilization fees and termination fees to exit certain supply chain arrangements and/or the write-off of certain equipment;
our inability to sell our inventory in a timely manner requiring us to sell our products through liquidation channels at lower prices, write-down or write-off obsolete inventory, or increase inventory reserves;
our ability to accurately forecast our future results of operations and financial goals or targets, including fluctuations in demand for our products and in the plant-based meat category generally and increased competition;

BEYOND MEAT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
Note 1. Introduction
The Company
Beyond Meat, Inc., a Delaware corporation (including its subsidiaries unless the context otherwise requires, the “Company”), is a leading plant-based meat company offering a portfolio of revolutionary plant-based meats. The Company builds meat directly from plants, an innovation that enables consumers to experience the taste, texture and other sensory attributes of popular animal-based meat products while enjoying the nutritional and environmental benefits of eating the Company’s plant-based meat products. The Company’s brand commitment, “Eat What You Love,” represents a strong belief that there is a better way to feed our future and that the positive choices we all make, no matter how small, can have a great impact on our personal health and the health of our planet. By shifting from animal-based meat to plant-based protein, we can positively impact four growing global issues: human health, climate change, constraints on natural resources and animal welfare.
As of October 1, 2022, approximately 85% of the Company’s assets were located in the United States.
COVID-19 Pandemic
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The global spread and unprecedented impact of COVID-19 continues to create significant volatility, uncertainty and economic disruption. The Company’s operations and its financial results including net revenues, gross profit, gross margin and operating expenses were negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020, 2021 and the first nine months of 2022. The extent of COVID-19’s effect on the Company’s operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration, spread and intensity of the pandemic (including any resurgences), the impact of variants of the virus that causes COVID-19, the wide distribution and public acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines, labor needs at the Company as well as in the supply chain and at customers, compliance with government or employer COVID-19 vaccine mandates and the resulting impact on available labor, and the level of social and economic restrictions imposed in the United States and abroad in an effort to curb the spread of the virus, all of which are uncertain and difficult to predict. As a result, it is not currently possible to ascertain the overall impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition or liquidity. While the ultimate health and economic impact of COVID-19 continues to be highly uncertain, the Company expects that the adverse impact of COVID-19 on its business and results of operations, including its net revenues, gross profit, gross margin, earnings and cash flows, will continue in the remainder of 2022. Future events and effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be determined with precision and actual results could significantly differ from estimates or forecasts.
Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
A detailed description of the Company's significant accounting policies can be found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on March 2, 2022 (the “2021 10-K”). There have been no material changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies from those that were disclosed in the 2021 10-K, except as noted below.
Basis of Presentation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the SEC regarding interim financial reporting. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the condensed
9

BEYOND MEAT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)
consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary, which are of a normal and recurring nature, for the fair presentation of the Company’s financial position and of the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. These interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022 or for any other interim period or for any other future fiscal year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the 2021 10-K. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date.
Principles of Consolidation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.
Management’s Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant accounting estimates made by the Company include trade promotion accruals; useful lives of property, plant and equipment; valuation of deferred tax assets; valuation of inventory; incremental borrowing rate used to determine operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities; assessment of contract-based factors, asset-based factors, entity-based factors and market-based factors to determine the lease term impacting right-of-use assets and lease liabilities; the valuation of the fair value of stock options used to determine share-based compensation expense; and loss contingency accruals in connection with claims, lawsuits and administrative proceedings. These estimates and assumptions are based on current facts, historical experience and various other factors believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the recording of expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from those estimates and such differences may be material to the condensed consolidated financial statements.
Foreign Currency
Foreign currency translation loss, net of tax, reported as cumulative translation adjustment through “Other comprehensive loss” was $(1.7) million and $(1.0) million for the three months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, respectively.
Foreign currency translation loss, net of tax, reported as cumulative translation adjustment through “Other comprehensive loss” was $(4.7) million and $(1.7) million for the nine months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, respectively.
Realized and unrealized foreign currency transaction losses included in “Other, net” were $(3.9) million and $(10.5) million in the three and nine months ended October 1, 2022, respectively. Realized and unrealized foreign currency transaction losses included in “Other, net” were $(0.2) million and $(0.4) million in the three and nine months ended October 2, 2021, respectively.

Note 3. Restructuring
In May 2017, management approved a plan to terminate the Company’s exclusive supply agreement (the “Agreement”) with one of its co-manufacturers, due to non-performance under the Agreement and on May 23, 2017, the Company notified the co-manufacturer of its decision to terminate the Agreement. In the three months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, the Company recorded $7.0 million and $5.8 million, respectively, in restructuring expenses related to this dispute, which consisted primarily of legal and other expenses. In the nine months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, the Company recorded $14.3 million and $12.1 million, respectively, in restructuring expenses related to this dispute, which consisted primarily of legal and other expenses. As of October 1, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had $4.1 million and $2.7 million, respectively, in accrued and unpaid restructuring expenses. Subsequent to the quarter ended October 1, 2022, on October 18, 2022, the parties to this dispute entered into a confidential written settlement agreement and mutual release in connection with this matter. See Note 10 for further information.
Note 4. Leases
Leases are classified as either finance leases or operating leases based on criteria in Accounting Standards Codification 842. The Company has operating leases for its corporate offices, including its Manhattan Beach Project Innovation Center, its manufacturing facilities, commercialization center, warehouses and vehicles, and to a lesser extent, certain equipment and finance leases. Such leases generally have original lease terms between two and 16 years, and often include one or more options to renew. Some leases also include early termination options, which can be exercised under specific conditions. The Company includes options to extend the lease term if the options are reasonably certain of being exercised. The Company does not have residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants associated with its leases.
On January 14, 2021, the Company entered into the Campus Lease, a 12-year lease with two 5-year renewal options to house its corporate headquarters, lab and innovation space (the “Premises”) in El Segundo, California. Although the Company is involved in the design of the tenant improvements of the Premises, the Company does not have title or possession of the assets during construction. In addition, the Company does not have the ability to control the leased Premises until each phase of the tenant improvements is complete. The Company contributed $49.1 million and $59.2 million in payments towards the construction of the Premises in the nine months ended October 1, 2022 and the year ended December 31, 2021, respectively. These payments are initially recorded in “Prepaid lease costs, non-current” in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets and will ultimately be reclassified as a component of a right-of-use asset upon lease commencement for each phase of the lease. On September 15, 2022, the tenant improvements associated with Phase 1-A were completed, and the underlying asset was delivered to the Company. As such, the Company has recognized a $64.1 million right-of-use asset, which includes the reclassification of $27.7 million of the construction payments previously included in “Prepaid lease costs, non-current,” and a $36.6 million lease liability for Phase 1-A of the Campus Lease in its condensed consolidated balance sheet as of October 1, 2022. Therefore, Phase 1-A of the Campus Lease is included in the tables below.
