CROWN CRAFTS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE-MONTH PERIODS ENDED JUNE 28, 2020 AND JUNE 30, 2019

 

 

Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation: The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Crown Crafts, Inc. (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries and have been prepared pursuant to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) applicable to interim financial information as promulgated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. References herein to GAAP are to topics within the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (the “FASB ASC”), which the FASB periodically revises through the issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) and which has been established by the FASB as the authoritative source for GAAP recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities.

 

In the opinion of management, the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements contained herein include all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of June 28, 2020 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Such adjustments include normal, recurring accruals, as well as the elimination of all significant intercompany balances and transactions. Operating results for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected by the Company for its fiscal year ending March 28, 2021. For further information, refer to the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 29, 2020.

 

Fiscal Year: The Company’s fiscal year ends on the Sunday that is nearest to or on March 31. References herein to “fiscal year 2021” or “2021” represent the 52-week period ending March 28, 2021 and references herein to “fiscal year 2020” or “2020” represent the 52-week period ended March 29, 2020.

 

Reclassifications: The Company has classified certain prior year information to conform to the amounts presented in the current year. None of the changes impact the Company’s previously reported financial position or results of operations.

 

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the condensed consolidated balance sheets and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented on the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income and cash flows. Significant estimates are made with respect to the allowances related to accounts receivable for customer deductions for returns, allowances and disputes. The Company also has a certain amount of discontinued finished goods which necessitates the establishment of inventory reserves that are highly subjective. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents: The Company’s credit facility consists of a revolving line of credit under a financing agreement with The CIT Group/Commercial Services, Inc. (“CIT”), a subsidiary of CIT Group Inc. The Company classifies a negative balance outstanding under this revolving line of credit as cash, as these amounts are legally owed to the Company and are immediately available to be drawn upon by the Company. There are no compensating balance requirements or other restrictions on the transfer of amounts associated with the Company’s depository accounts.

 

Financial Instruments: For short-term instruments such as cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable, the Company uses carrying value as a reasonable estimate of the fair value.

 

Advertising Costs: The Company’s advertising costs are primarily associated with cooperative advertising arrangements with certain of the Company’s customers and are recognized using the straight-line method based upon aggregate annual estimated amounts for these customers, with periodic adjustments to the actual amounts of authorized agreements. Costs associated with advertising on websites such as Facebook and Google and which are associated with the Company’s online business are recorded as incurred. Advertising expense is included in marketing and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income and amounted to $345,000 and $284,000 for the three months ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively.

 

6

 

Revenue Recognition: Revenue is recognized upon the satisfaction of all contractual performance obligations and the transfer of control of the products sold to the customer. The majority of the Company’s sales consists of single performance obligation arrangements for which the transaction price for a given product sold is equivalent to the price quoted for the product, net of any stated discounts applicable at a point in time. Each sales transaction results in an implicit contract with the customer to deliver a product as directed by the customer. Shipping and handling costs that are charged to customers are included in net sales, and the Company’s costs associated with shipping and handling activities are included in cost of products sold.

 

A provision for anticipated returns, which are based upon historical returns and claims, is provided through a reduction of net sales and cost of products sold in the reporting period within which the related sales are recorded. Actual returns and claims experienced in a future period may differ from historical experience, and thus, the Company’s provision for anticipated returns at any given point in time may be over-funded or under-funded.

 

The Company recognizes revenue associated with unredeemed store credits and gift certificates at the earlier of their redemption by customers, their expiration or when their likelihood of redemption becomes remote, which is generally two years from the date of issuance. Revenue from sales made directly to consumers is recorded when the shipped products have been received by customers, and excludes sales taxes collected on behalf of governmental entities. Revenue from sales made to retailers is recorded when legal title has been passed to the customer based upon the terms of the customer’s purchase order, the Company’s sales invoice, or other associated relevant documents. Such terms usually stipulate that legal title will pass when the shipped products are no longer under the control of the Company, such as when the products are picked up at the Company’s facility by the customer or by a common carrier. Payment terms can vary from prepayment for sales made directly to consumers to payment due in arrears (generally, 60 days of being invoiced) for sales made to retailers.

 

Allowances Against Accounts Receivable:     Revenue from sales made to retailers is reported net of allowances for anticipated returns and other allowances, including cooperative advertising allowances, warehouse allowances, placement fees, volume rebates, coupons and discounts. Such allowances are recorded commensurate with sales activity or using the straight-line method, as appropriate, and the cost of such allowances is netted against sales in reporting the results of operations. The provision for the majority of the Company’s allowances occurs on a per-invoice basis. When a customer requests to have an agreed-upon deduction applied against the customer’s outstanding balance due to the Company, the allowances are correspondingly reduced to reflect such payments or credits issued against the customer’s account balance. The Company analyzes the components of the allowances for customer deductions monthly and adjusts the allowances to the appropriate levels. The timing of funding requests for advertising support can cause the net balance in the allowance account to fluctuate from period to period. The timing of such funding requests should have no impact on the consolidated statements of income since such costs are accrued commensurate with sales activity or using the straight-line method, as appropriate.

 

Uncollectible Accounts:     To reduce the Company’s exposure to credit losses and to enhance the predictability of its cash flows, the Company assigns the majority of its receivables under factoring agreements with CIT. If a factored receivable becomes uncollectible due to customer creditworthiness, then CIT bears the risk of loss. The Company recognizes revenue net of the amount that is expected to be uncollectible on any accounts receivable that are not assigned under the factoring agreements with CIT. The Company’s management makes estimates of the uncollectiblity of its non-factored accounts receivable by specifically analyzing the accounts receivable, historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer creditworthiness, current economic trends and changes in its customers’ payment terms.

 

Credit Concentration: The Company’s accounts receivable as of June 28, 2020 amounted to $15.1 million, net of allowances of $587,000. Of this amount, $14.5 million was due from CIT under the factoring agreements and $6.2 million was due from CIT as a negative balance outstanding under the revolving line of credit. The combined amount of $20.7 million represents the maximum loss that the Company could incur if CIT failed completely to perform its obligations under the factoring agreements and the revolving line of credit. The Company’s accounts receivable at March 29, 2020 amounted to $17.8 million, net of allowances of $530,000. Of this amount, $17.1 million was due from CIT under the factoring agreements, which amount represents the maximum loss that the Company could incur if CIT failed completely to perform its obligations under the factoring agreements.

 

Unearned Revenue: Unearned revenue reflecting payments from customers that were received before the products ordered were received by the customers was $524,000 and $155,000 as of June 28, 2020 and March 29, 2020, respectively.

Segment and Related Information: The Company operates primarily in one principal segment, infant and toddler products. These products consist of infant and toddler bedding, bibs, soft bath products, disposable products, developmental and bath toys and accessories. Net sales of bedding, blankets and accessories and net sales of bibs, bath, developmental toy, feeding, baby care and disposable products for the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019 are as follows (in thousands):

 

    Three-Month Periods Ended  
    June 28, 2020     June 30, 2019  
Bedding, blankets and accessories   $ 10,017     $ 7,713  
Bibs, bath, developmental toy, feeding, baby care and disposable products     6,188       8,229  
Total net sales   $ 16,205     $ 15,942  

 

Inventory Valuation: The preparation of the Company's financial statements requires careful determination of the appropriate value of the Company's inventory balances. Such amounts are presented as a current asset in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets and are a direct determinant of cost of products sold in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income and, therefore, have a significant impact on the amount of net income reported in the accounting periods. The basis of accounting for inventories is cost, which includes the direct supplier acquisition cost, duties, taxes and freight, and the indirect costs to design, develop, source and store the product until it is sold. Once cost has been determined, the Company’s inventory is then stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost determined using the first-in, first-out ("FIFO") method, which assumes that inventory quantities are sold in the order in which they are acquired, and the average cost method for a portion of the Company’s inventory.

 

The determination of the indirect charges and their allocation to the Company's finished goods inventories is complex and requires significant management judgment and estimates. If management made different judgments or utilized different estimates, then differences would result in the valuation of the Company's inventories and in the amount and timing of the Company's cost of products sold and the resulting net income for the reporting period.

 

On a periodic basis, management reviews its inventory quantities on hand for obsolescence, physical deterioration, changes in price levels and the existence of quantities on hand which may not reasonably be expected to be sold within the Company’s normal operating cycle. To the extent that any of these conditions is believed to exist or the market value of the inventory expected to be realized in the ordinary course of business is otherwise no longer as great as its carrying value, an allowance against the inventory value is established. To the extent that this allowance is established or increased during an accounting period, an expense is recorded in cost of products sold in the Company's consolidated statements of income. Only when inventory for which an allowance has been established is later sold or is otherwise disposed is the allowance reduced accordingly. Significant management judgment is required in determining the amount and adequacy of this allowance. In the event that actual results differ from management's estimates or these estimates and judgments are revised in future periods, the Company may not fully realize the carrying value of its inventory or may need to establish additional allowances, either of which could materially impact the Company's financial position and results of operations.

 

Royalty Payments: The Company has entered into agreements that provide for royalty payments based on a percentage of sales with certain minimum guaranteed amounts. These royalty amounts are accrued based upon historical sales rates adjusted for current sales trends by customers. Royalty expense is included in cost of products sold in the accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of income and amounted to $1.2 million and $881,000 for the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively.

 

Depreciation and Amortization: The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets reflect property, plant and equipment, and certain intangible assets at cost less accumulated depreciation or amortization. The Company capitalizes additions and improvements and expenses maintenance and repairs as incurred. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are three to eight years for property, plant and equipment, and five to twenty years for intangible assets other than goodwill. The Company amortizes improvements to its leased facilities over the term of the lease or the estimated useful life of the asset, whichever is shorter.

 

Valuation of Long-Lived Assets and Identifiable Intangible Assets: In addition to the depreciation and amortization procedures set forth above, the Company reviews for impairment long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of any asset may not be recoverable. In the event of impairment, the asset is written down to its fair market value.

Patent Costs: The Company incurs certain legal and related costs in connection with patent applications. The Company capitalizes such costs to be amortized over the expected life of the patent to the extent that an economic benefit is anticipated from the resulting patent or an alternative future use is available to the Company. The Company also capitalizes legal and other costs incurred in the protection or defense of the Company’s patents when it is believed that the future economic benefit of the patent will be maintained or increased and a successful defense is probable. Capitalized patent defense costs are amortized over the remaining expected life of the related patent. The Company’s assessment of future economic benefit of its patents involves considerable management judgment, and a different conclusion could result in a material impairment charge up to the carrying value of these assets.

 

Provision for Income Taxes: The Company’s provision for income taxes includes all currently payable federal, state, local and foreign taxes and is based upon the Company’s estimated annual effective tax rate (the “ETR”), which is based on the Company’s forecasted annual pre-tax income, as adjusted for certain expenses within the consolidated statements of income that will never be deductible on the Company’s tax returns and certain charges expected to be deducted on the Company’s tax returns that will never be deducted on the consolidated statements of income, multiplied by the statutory tax rates for the various jurisdictions in which the Company operates and reduced by certain anticipated tax credits.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the many jurisdictions in which it operates, including the U.S., several U.S. states and the People’s Republic of China. The statute of limitations varies by jurisdiction; tax years open to federal or state audit or other adjustment as of June 28, 2020 were the tax years ended March 29, 2020, March 31, 2019, April 1, 2018, April 2, 2017, April 3, 2016 and March 30, 2014.

 

Management evaluates items of income, deductions and credits reported on the Company’s various federal and state income tax returns filed and recognizes the effect of positions taken on those income tax returns only if those positions are more likely than not to be sustained. The Company applies the provisions of accounting guidelines that require a minimum recognition threshold that a tax benefit must meet before being recognized in the financial statements. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs.

 

After considering all relevant information regarding the calculation of the state portion of its income tax provision, the Company believes that the technical merits of the tax position that the Company has taken with respect to state apportionment percentages would more likely than not be sustained. However, the Company also realizes that the ultimate resolution of such tax position could result in a tax charge that is more than the amount realized based upon the application of the tax position taken. Therefore, the Company’s measurement regarding the tax impact of the revised state apportionment percentages resulted in the Company recording discrete reserves for unrecognized tax liabilities during the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019 of $13,000 and $11,000, respectively, in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income.

 

The Company’s policy is to accrue interest expense and penalties as appropriate on any estimated unrecognized tax liabilities as a charge to interest expense in the Company’s consolidated statements of income. During the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, the Company accrued $17,000 and $26,000, respectively, for interest expense and penalties on the portion of the unrecognized tax liabilities for which the relevant statute of limitations remained unexpired. No interest expense or penalties are accrued with respect to estimated unrecognized tax liabilities that are associated with state income tax overpayments that remain receivable.

 

In December 2016, the Company was notified by the Franchise Tax Board of the State of California (the “FTB”) of its intention to examine the Company’s claims for refund made in connection with amended consolidated income tax returns that the Company had filed for the fiscal years ended March 30, 2014, March 31, 2013, April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011. On July 31, 2019, the FTB notified the Company that it would take no further action with regard to the fiscal years ended March 31, 2013, April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011. Accordingly, the Company reversed the reserves for unrecognized tax liabilities that it had previously recorded for these fiscal years, which resulted in the recognition of a discrete income tax benefit of $232,000 during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income. The Company also reversed the interest expense and penalties that it had accrued in respect of the unrecognized tax liabilities for these fiscal years, which resulted in the recognition of a credit to interest expense of $78,000 during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019.

 

As of July 27, 2020, the status of the Company’s claim for refund made in connection with the amended consolidated income tax return that the Company filed for the fiscal year ended March 30, 2014 was not resolved. The ultimate resolution of this claim for refund could include administrative or legal proceedings. Although management believes that the calculations and positions taken on the amended consolidated income tax return and all other filed income tax returns are reasonable and justifiable, the outcome of this or any other examination could result in an adjustment to the position that the Company took on such income tax returns. Such adjustment could also lead to adjustments to one or more other state income tax returns, or to income tax returns for subsequent fiscal years, or both. To the extent that the Company’s reserve for unrecognized tax liabilities is not adequate to support the cumulative effect of such adjustments, the Company could experience a material adverse impact on its future results of operations. Conversely, to the extent that the calculations and positions taken by the Company on the filed income tax returns under examination are sustained, or to the extent that the tax returns become closed to examination or other adjustment, another reversal of all or a portion of the Company’s reserve for unrecognized tax liabilities could result in a favorable impact on its future results of operations.

During the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a discrete income tax charge of $2,000 to reflect the effects of the tax shortfalls arising from the vesting of non-vested stock during the period. There was no such charge recorded during the three-month period ended June 28, 2020.

 

Earnings Per Share: The Company calculates basic earnings per share by using a weighted average of the number of shares outstanding during the reporting periods. Diluted shares outstanding are calculated in accordance with the treasury stock method, which assumes that the proceeds from the exercise of all exercisable options would be used to repurchase shares at market value. The net number of shares issued after the exercise proceeds are exhausted represents the potentially dilutive effect of the exercisable options, which are added to basic shares to arrive at diluted shares.

 

Recently-Issued Accounting Standards:   In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, the objective of which is to provide financial statement users with more information about the expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit held by an entity. Current GAAP requires an “incurred loss” methodology for recognizing credit losses that delays recognition until it is probable that a loss has been incurred. Because this methodology restricted the recognition of credit losses that are expected, but did not yet meet the “probable” threshold, ASU No. 2016-13 was issued to require the consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information when determining estimates of credit losses.

 

ASU No. 2016-13 is to be applied using a modified retrospective approach, and the ASU could have been early-adopted in the fiscal year that began after December 15, 2018. When issued, ASU No. 2016-13 was required to be adopted no later than the fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2019, but on November 15, 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-10, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates, which provided for the deferral of the effective date of ASU No. 2016-13 for a registrant that is a smaller reporting company to the first interim period of the fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2022. Accordingly, the Company intends to adopt ASU No. 2016-13 effective as of April 3, 2023. Although the Company has not determined the full impact of the adoption of ASU No. 2016-13, because the Company assigns the majority of its trade accounts receivable under factoring agreements with CIT, the Company does not believe that the adoption of the ASU will have a significant impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and related disclosures.

 

The Company has determined that all other ASU’s issued which had become effective as of July 27, 2020, or which will become effective at some future date, are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

 

Note 2 – Financing Arrangements

 

Factoring Agreements:     To reduce its exposure to credit losses, The Company assigns the majority of its trade accounts receivable to CIT pursuant to factoring agreements, which have expiration dates that are coterminous with that of the financing agreement described below. Under the terms of the factoring agreements, CIT remits customer payments to the Company as such payments are received by CIT.

 

CIT bears credit losses with respect to assigned accounts receivable from approved shipments, while the Company bears the responsibility for adjustments from customers related to returns, allowances, claims and discounts. CIT may at any time terminate or limit its approval of shipments to a particular customer. If such a termination or limitation occurs, then the Company either assumes (and may seek to mitigate) the credit risk for shipments to the customer after the date of such termination or limitation or discontinues shipments to the customer. Factoring fees, which are included in marketing and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of income, were $45,000 and $51,000 during the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. There were no advances on the factoring agreements at June 30, 2020 or March 29, 2020.

Credit Facility:     The Company’s credit facility at June 28, 2020 consisted of a revolving line of credit under a financing agreement with CIT of up to $26.0 million, which includes a $1.5 million sub-limit for letters of credit, bearing interest at the rate of prime minus 0.5% or LIBOR plus 1.75%. The financing agreement matures on July 11, 2022 and is secured by a first lien on all assets of the Company. At June 28, 2020, the Company had elected to pay interest on balances owed under the revolving line of credit, if any, under the LIBOR option, which was 2.74% as of June 28, 2020. The financing agreement also provides for the payment by CIT to the Company of interest at the rate of prime as of the beginning of the calendar month minus 2.0%, which was 1.25% as of June 28, 2020, on daily negative balances, if any, held at CIT.

 

As of June 28, 2020, there was no balance owed on the revolving line of credit, there was no letter of credit outstanding and $20.6 million was available under the revolving line of credit based on the Company’s eligible accounts receivable and inventory balances. As of March 29, 2020, there was a balance of $2.6 million owed on the revolving line of credit, there was no letter of credit outstanding and $20.1 million was available under the revolving line of credit based on the Company’s eligible accounts receivable and inventory balances.

 

The financing agreement contains usual and customary covenants for agreements of that type, including limitations on other indebtedness, liens, transfers of assets, investments and acquisitions, merger or consolidation transactions, transactions with affiliates, and changes in or amendments to the organizational documents for the Company and its subsidiaries. The Company believes it was in compliance with these covenants as of June 28, 2020.

 

Paycheck Protection Program Loan: On April 19, 2020, the Company executed a Note (the “Note”) in connection with a loan (the “Loan”) made pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”), which is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) and the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (the “Flexibility Act”). The Note was entered into with CIT Bank, N.A. (the “Lender”) for the principal amount of $1,963,800 and will accrue interest at 1.0% per year. The Note will mature on April 20, 2022, at which time all remaining outstanding principal and accrued interest amounts under the Note will become due and payable.

 

As authorized by the provisions of the CARES Act, the Company may apply to the Lender for forgiveness of all or a portion of the Loan in an amount equal to the sum of certain allowable costs incurred by the Company during the 8-week period beginning on April 20, 2020. The Flexibility Act extended this to a period of up to 24 weeks beginning on April 20, 2020. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of the proceeds of the Loan for payroll costs, mortgage interest, rent or utility costs.

 

The terms of the Note provided that beginning on November 1, 2020, the Company would be required to pay monthly installments of principal and interest in the amount necessary to fully amortize the Loan through the maturity date. However, the Flexibility Act provides that principal and interest payments will not be required to begin until subsequent to the date that the forgiveness amount is remitted to the Lender by the SBA, or the SBA otherwise notifies the Lender that the Loan is not eligible for forgiveness. The Note may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity without penalty.

 

The Company intends to submit an application to the Lender for forgiveness of the full amount of the Loan. The Company has made a preliminary projection that the amount, if any, of the Loan that is determined to be forgiven will be remitted to the Lender by the SBA in December 2020. The Company has not presumed that any amount of such forgiveness of the Loan will be obtained, either in whole or in part, and has therefore made the assumption that monthly installments will commence in January 2021 of principal and interest in the amount necessary to amortize the full amount of the Loan through the maturity date. The Company has accordingly classified principal payments in the aggregate amount of $737,000 as a current liability in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 28, 2020. The remaining balance of the Loan outstanding as of June 28, 2020 of $1.2 million has been presented as long-term debt in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet, such amount being due and payable in monthly installments from July 2021 through March 2022.

 

The Note contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breach of representations and warranties, or provisions of the Note. The occurrence of an event of default may result in the repayment of all amounts outstanding, collection of all amounts owing from the Company, and/or filing suit and obtaining judgment against the Company. Additionally, the Note is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to loans administered by the SBA under the CARES Act and the Flexibility Act.

Note 3 – Goodwill

 

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net identifiable assets acquired in business combinations. For the purpose of presenting and measuring for the impairment of goodwill, the Company has two reporting units: one that produces and markets infant and toddler bedding, blankets and accessories and another that produces and markets infant and toddler bibs, developmental toys, bath care and disposable products. The goodwill of the reporting units of the Company as of June 28, 2020 and March 29, 2020 amounted to $30.0 million, which is reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets net of accumulated impairment charges of $22.9 million, for a net reported balance of $7.1 million.

The Company measures for impairment the goodwill within its reporting units annually as of the first day of the Company’s fiscal year. An additional interim measurement for impairment is performed during the year whenever an event or change in circumstances occurs that suggests that the fair value of either of the reporting units of the Company has more likely than not (defined as having a likelihood of greater than 50%) fallen below its carrying value. The annual or interim measurement for impairment is performed by first assessing qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If such qualitative factors so indicate, then the measurement for impairment is continued by calculating an estimate of the fair value of each reporting unit and comparing the estimated fair value to the carrying value of the reporting unit. If the carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value of the reporting unit, then an impairment charge is calculated as the difference between the carrying value of the reporting unit and its estimated fair value, not to exceed the goodwill of the reporting unit.

 

On March 30, 2020, the Company performed the annual measurement for impairment of the goodwill of its reporting units and concluded that the estimated fair value of each of the Company’s reporting units exceeded their carrying values, and thus the goodwill of the Company’s reporting units was not impaired as of that date.

 

 

Note 4 – Other Intangible Assets

 

Other intangible assets as of June 28, 2020 and March 29, 2020 consisted primarily of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired in business combinations other than tangible assets and goodwill. The gross amount and accumulated amortization of the Company’s other intangible assets as of June 28, 2020 and March 29, 2020, the amortization expense for the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019 and the classification of such amortization expense within the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income are as follows (in thousands):

Note 6 – Leases

 

The Company is a party to various operating leases for offices, warehousing facilities and certain office equipment. The leases expire at various dates, have varying options to renew and cancel, and may contain escalation provisions. The Company recognizes as expense non-variable lease payments ratably over the lease term. The key estimates for the Company’s leases include the discount rate used to discount the unpaid lease payment to present value and the lease term. The Company’s leases generally do not include a readily determinable implicit rate; therefore, management determined the incremental borrowing rate to discount the lease payment based on the information available at lease commencement. For purposes of such estimates, a lease term includes the noncancellable period under the applicable lease.

 

The Company made cash payments related to its recognized operating leases of $408,000 and $352,000 during the three months ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. Such payments reduced the operating lease liabilities and were included in the cash flows provided by operating activities in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. As of June 28, 2020, the Company’s operating leases have a weighted-average remaining lease term of 2.8 years and the weighted-average discount rate is 3.81%.

 

During the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, the Company classified its operating lease costs within the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income as follows (in thousands):

The Company has two incentive stock plans, the 2006 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”) and the 2014 Omnibus Equity Compensation Plan (the “2014 Plan”). As a result of the approval of the 2014 Plan by the Company’s stockholders at the Company’s 2014 annual meeting, grants may no longer be issued under the 2006 Plan.

The Company believes that awards of long-term, equity-based incentive compensation will attract and retain directors, officers and employees of the Company and will encourage these individuals to contribute to the successful performance of the Company, which will lead to the achievement of the Company’s overall goal of increasing stockholder value. Awards granted under the 2014 Plan may be in the form of incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, shares of restricted or unrestricted stock, stock units, stock appreciation rights, or other stock-based awards. Awards may be granted subject to the achievement of performance goals or other conditions, and certain awards may be payable in stock or cash, or a combination of the two. The 2014 Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), which selects eligible employees, non-employee directors and other individuals to participate in the 2014 Plan and determines the type, amount, duration (such duration not to exceed a term of ten (10) years for grants of options) and other terms of individual awards. At June 28, 2020, 310,000 shares of the Company’s common stock were available for future issuance under the 2014 Plan, which may be issued from authorized and unissued shares of the Company’s common stock or treasury shares.

Stock-based compensation is calculated according to FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, which requires stock-based compensation to be accounted for using a fair-value-based measurement. During the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, the Company recorded $86,000 and $65,000 of stock-based compensation, respectively. The Company records the compensation expense associated with stock-based awards granted to individuals in the same expense classifications as the cash compensation paid to those same individuals. No stock-based compensation costs were capitalized as part of the cost of an asset as of June 28, 2020.

 

Stock Options: The following table represents stock option activity for the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019:

As of June 28, 2020, the intrinsic value of the outstanding and exercisable stock options was each $1,000. There were no options exercised during either of the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 or June 30, 2019.

 

To determine the estimated fair value of stock options granted, the Company uses the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation formula, which is a closed-form model that uses an equation to estimate fair value. The following table sets forth the assumptions used to determine the fair value of the non-qualified stock options that were awarded to certain employees during the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, which options vest over a two-year period, assuming continued service.

As of June 28, 2020, total unrecognized stock option compensation expense amounted to $83,000, which will be recognized as the underlying stock options vest over a weighted-average period of 1.3 years. The amount of future stock option compensation expense could be affected by any future stock option grants and by the separation from the Company of any individual who has received stock options that are unvested as of such individual’s separation date.

These shares vest over a two-year period, assuming continued service. The fair value of the non-vested stock granted to the Company’s non-employee directors was based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of each grant.

 

Non-vested Stock Granted to Employees: On January 18, 2019, upon the appointment of Donna Sheridan to serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer of NoJo Baby & Kids, Inc. (“NoJo”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, the Board granted 25,000 shares of non-vested stock to Ms. Sheridan. These shares will vest on January 18, 2021, assuming continued service. The fair value of these shares of non-vested stock is $5.86 per share, which is based upon the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grant.

 

On June 10, 2020, the Board granted 20,000 shares of non-vested stock to certain executive officers. These shares will vest on June 10, 2022, assuming continued service. The fair value of these shares of non-vested stock is $4.92 per share, which is based upon the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the grants.

 

Performance Bonus Plan:  On June 9, 2020, the Compensation Committee terminated the Company’s 2012 Performance Bonus Plan (the “2012 Plan”). Under the 2012 Plan, certain executive officers were eligible to receive awards of shares of the Company’s common stock if the aggregate average market value of the Company’s common stock during the relevant fiscal year, plus the amount of regular cash dividends paid in respect of the Company’s common stock during such period, increased. No shares were granted and no compensation expense was recorded during the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 or June 30, 2019 in connection with the 2012 Plan. During the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, 21,125 shares that had been granted during fiscal year 2018 vested, with such shares having an aggregate value of $109,000. Individuals holding shares that vested surrendered to the Company the number of shares necessary to satisfy the income tax withholding obligations that arose from the vesting of the shares, and the Company remitted $17,000 to the appropriate taxing authorities on behalf of such individuals.

 

For the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, the Company recorded compensation expense associated with stock grants, which is included in marketing and administrative expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income, as follows (in thousands):

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause future results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements. These risks include, among others, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business operations, general economic conditions, including changes in interest rates, in the overall level of consumer spending and in the price of oil, cotton and other raw materials used in the Company’s products, changing competition, changes in the retail environment, the Company’s ability to successfully integrate newly acquired businesses, the level and pricing of future orders from the Company’s customers, the Company’s dependence upon third-party suppliers, including some located in foreign countries with unstable political situations, the Company’s ability to successfully implement new information technologies, customer acceptance of both new designs and newly-introduced product lines, actions of competitors that may impact the Company’s business, disruptions to transportation systems or shipping lanes used by the Company or its suppliers, and the Company’s dependence upon licenses from third parties. Reference is also made to the Company’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for additional factors that may impact the Company’s results of operations and financial condition. The Company does not undertake to update the forward-looking statements contained herein to conform to actual results or changes in the Company’s expectations, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

 

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

The Company was originally formed as a Georgia corporation in 1957 and was reincorporated as a Delaware corporation in 2003. The Company operates indirectly through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, NoJo, Sassy Baby, Inc. (“Sassy”) and Carousel Designs, LLC, in the infant, toddler and juvenile products segment within the consumer products industry. The infant, toddler and juvenile products segment consists of infant and toddler bedding and blankets, bibs, soft bath products, disposable products, developmental toys and accessories. The Company’s products are marketed under Company-owned trademarks, under trademarks licensed from others and as private label goods. Sales of the Company’s products are made directly to retailers, such as mass merchants, large chain stores, juvenile specialty stores, value channel stores, grocery and drug stores, restaurants, wholesale clubs and internet-based retailers, as well as directly to consumers through www.babybedding.com.

 

The Company’s products are marketed to retailers through a national sales force consisting of salaried sales executives and employees located in Compton, California; Gonzales, Louisiana; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Bentonville, Arkansas and by independent commissioned sales representatives located throughout the United States. Products are also marketed directly to consumers from a Company facility in Douglasville, Georgia.

 

The infant and toddler consumer products industry is highly competitive. The Company competes with a variety of distributors and manufacturers (both branded and private label), including large infant and juvenile product companies and specialty infant and juvenile product manufacturers, on the basis of quality, design, price, brand name recognition, service and packaging. The Company’s ability to compete depends principally on styling, price, service to the retailer and continued high regard for the Company’s products and trade names.

 

Foreign and domestic contract manufacturers produce most of the Company’s products, with the largest concentration being in China. The Company makes sourcing decisions based on quality, timeliness of delivery and price, including the impact of ocean freight and duties. Although the Company maintains relationships with a limited number of suppliers, the Company believes that its products may be readily manufactured by several alternative sources in quantities sufficient to meet the Company's requirements. The Company also produces some of its products domestically at a Company facility in Douglasville, Georgia.

 

A summary of certain factors that management considers important in reviewing the Company’s results of operations, financial position, liquidity and capital resources is set forth below, which should be read in conjunction with the accompanying consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the preceding sections of this report.

Net Sales: Sales increased to $16.2 million for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020, compared with $15.9 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, an increase of $263,000, or 1.6%. Sales of bedding, blankets and accessories increased by $2.3 million due to increased sell-through at major retailers, while sales of bibs, bath, developmental toys, feeding, baby care and disposable products decreased by $2.0 million, primarily as a result of certain retailers being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Gross Profit: Gross profit increased by $472,000 and increased from 28.5% of net sales for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 to 31.0% of net sales for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020. The increase in gross profit is due to the increase in net sales as well as a more favorable customer and product mix.

 

Marketing and Administrative Expenses: Marketing and administrative expenses decreased slightly in amount and were 20.9% of net sales for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020, compared with 21.7% of net sales for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in amount for the current year period is primarily the result of lower overall compensation costs of $175,000, partially offset by higher outside services of $98,000.

 

Income Tax Expense: The Company’s provision for income taxes is based upon an estimated annual ETR from continuing operations of 25.1% for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020.

 

The Company applies the provisions of FASB ASC Sub-topic 740-10-25, which requires a minimum recognition threshold that a tax benefit must meet before being recognized in the financial statements. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs. After considering all relevant information regarding the calculation of the state portion of its income tax provision, the Company believes that the technical merits of the tax position that the Company has taken with respect to state apportionment percentages would more likely than not be sustained. However, the Company also realizes that the ultimate resolution of such tax position could result in a tax charge that is more than the amount realized based upon the application of the tax position taken. Therefore, the Company’s measurement regarding the tax impact of the revised state apportionment percentages resulted in the Company recording discrete reserves for unrecognized tax liabilities during the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019 of $13,000 and $11,000, respectively, in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income.

In December 2016, the Company was notified by the FTB of its intention to examine the Company’s claims for refund made in connection with amended consolidated income tax returns that the Company had filed for years ended March 30, 2014, March 31, 2013, April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011. On July 31, 2019, the FTB notified the Company that it would take no further action with regard to the returns filed for years ended March 31, 2013, April 1, 2012 and April 3, 2011. Accordingly, the Company reversed the reserves for unrecognized tax liabilities that it had previously recorded for those fiscal years, which resulted in the recognition of a discrete income tax benefit of $232,000 during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income. The Company also reversed the interest expense and penalties that it had accrued in respect of the unrecognized tax liabilities for these fiscal years, which resulted in the recognition of a credit to interest expense of $78,000 during the three-month period ended June 30, 2019.

 

During the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a discrete income tax charge of $2,000 to reflect the effects of the tax shortfalls arising from the vesting of non-vested stock during the period. There was no such charge recorded during the three-month period ended June 28, 2020.

 

The ETR on continuing operations and the discrete income tax charges and benefits set forth above resulted in an overall provision for income taxes of 25.9% and 5.0% for the three-month periods ended June 28, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively.

 

Although the Company does not anticipate a material change to the ETR from continuing operations for the balance of fiscal year 2021, several factors could impact the ETR, including variations from the Company’s estimates of the amount and source of its pre-tax income, and the actual ETR for the year could differ materially from the Company’s estimates.

 

FINANCIAL POSITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased from $8.7 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019 to $7.9 million for the three-month period ended June 28, 2020. The decrease in the current year was the primarily the result of a decrease in accounts receivable that was $2.6 million lower than the decrease in accounts receivable in the prior year, partially offset by a decrease in inventory of $402,000 in the current year compared with an increase in inventory of $915,000 in the prior year.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was nearly flat at $50,000 in capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment in the current year compared with $55,000 in the prior year.

 

Net cash used in financing activities decreased from $5.3 million in the prior year to $1.4 million in the current year, primarily due to net repayments under the revolving line of credit that were $1.9 million lower in the current year compared with the prior year and the receipt of almost $2.0 million in proceeds from the Loan made pursuant to the PPP under the CARES Act as discussed in Note 2 – Financing Arrangements.

 

At June 28, 2020, there was no balance owed on the Company’s revolving line of credit with CIT, there was no letter of credit outstanding and $20.6 million was available under the revolving line of credit based on the Company’s eligible accounts receivable and inventory balances.

 

To reduce its exposure to credit losses and to enhance the predictability of its cash flow, the Company assigns the majority of its trade accounts receivable to CIT under factoring agreements. Under the terms of the factoring agreements, CIT remits customer payments to the Company as such payments are received by CIT and bears credit losses with respect to assigned accounts receivable from approved customers that are within approved credit limits, while the Company bears the responsibility for adjustments from customers related to returns, allowances, claims and discounts. CIT may at any time terminate or limit its approval of shipments to a particular customer. If such a termination were to occur, then the Company must either choose to assume the credit risk for shipments after the date of such termination or limitation or cease shipments to such customer. There were no advances from the factor at either June 28, 2020 or June 30, 2019.

The Company continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its supply chain, manufacturing and distribution operations, customers and employees, as well as the U.S. economy in general. However, due to the uncertainty as to when governmental restrictions on business will be fully lifted, the impact thereof, and the duration and widespread nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company cannot currently predict the long-term impact on its operations and financial results. The uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic include potential adverse effects on the overall economy, the Company’s supply chain, transportation services, employees and customers, consumer sentiment in general, and traffic within the retail stores that carry the Company’s products. The COVID-19 pandemic could adversely affect the Company’s revenues, earnings, liquidity and cash flows and may require significant actions in response, including employee furloughs, closings of Company facilities, expense reductions or discounts of the pricing of the Company’s products, all in an effort to mitigate such effects. Conditions surrounding COVID-19 change rapidly, and additional impacts of which the Company is not currently aware may arise. Based on past performance and current expectations, the Company believes that its anticipated cash flow from operations and the availability under its revolving line of credit are sufficient to fund the Company’s requirements for working capital, capital expenditures and debt service for at least the next 12 months.

 

The Company’s future performance is, to a certain extent, subject to general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other factors beyond its control. Based upon the current level of operations, the Company believes that its cash flow from operations and funds available under the revolving line of credit will be adequate to meet its liquidity needs.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

For a discussion of market risks that could affect the Company, refer to the risk factors disclosed in Item 1A. of Part 1 of the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 29, 2020.

 

INTEREST RATE RISK

 

Although the Company could have an exposure to interest rate risk related to its floating rate debt, there was no balance outstanding on its floating rate debt as of June 28, 2020.

 

COMMODITY RATE RISK

 

The Company sources its products primarily from foreign contract manufacturers, with the largest concentration being in China. The Company’s exposure to commodity price risk primarily relates to changes in the prices in China of cotton, oil and labor, which are the principal inputs used in a substantial number of the Company’s products. In addition, although the Company pays its Chinese suppliers in U.S. dollars, an arbitrary strengthening of the rate of the Chinese currency versus the U.S. dollar could result in an increase in the cost of the Company’s finished goods. There is no assurance that the Company could timely respond to such increases by proportionately increasing the prices at which its products are sold to the Company’s customers.

 

MARKET CONCENTRATION RISK

 

The Company’s financial results are closely tied to sales to its top two customers, which represented approximately 62% of the Company’s gross sales in fiscal year 2020. In addition, 40% of the Company’s gross sales in fiscal year 2020 consisted of licensed products, which included 30% of sales associated with the Company’s license agreements with affiliated companies of the Walt Disney Company. The Company’s results could be materially impacted by the loss of one or more of these licenses.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report, as required by paragraph (b) of Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 of the Exchange Act.  Based on such evaluation, such officers have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

 

During the three-month period ended June 28, 2020, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (“ICFR”) identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 of the Exchange Act that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s ICFR.
