GAMESTOP CORP.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Tabular amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)
1.    General Information
The Company
GameStop Corp. (“GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) offers games, entertainment products and technology through its ecommerce properties and stores.
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. The information contained in these consolidated financial statements refers to continuing operations unless otherwise noted.
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The consolidated financial statements included herein reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments) which are, in our opinion, necessary for a fair presentation of the information for the periods presented. These 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 the instructions to Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they exclude certain disclosures required under GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements.
The accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes are unaudited. The consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the 52 weeks ended January 29, 2022, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 17, 2022 (the “2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K”). Due to the seasonal nature of our business, our results of operations for the three months ended April 30, 2022 are not indicative of our future results for the 52 weeks ending January 28, 2023. Our fiscal year is composed of the 52 or 53 weeks ending on the Saturday closest to the last day of January. Each of our fiscal years ending January 28, 2023 and January 29, 2022 consist of 52 weeks. All three month periods presented herein contain 13 weeks. All references to years, quarters and months relate to fiscal periods rather than calendar periods. Our business, like that of many retailers, is seasonal, with the major portion of the net sales realized during the fourth quarter, which includes the holiday selling season.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and disclosed in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes. We regularly evaluate the estimates related to our assets and liabilities, contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. In preparing these consolidated financial statements, we have made our best estimates and judgments of certain amounts recognized in the consolidated financial statements, giving due consideration to materiality. Changes in the estimates and assumptions that we have used could have a significant impact on our financial results. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
There have been no material changes to our significant accounting policies included in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies," in the 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Included below are certain updates related to those policies.
Digital Assets
We account for digital assets in accordance with ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350). Our digital assets are indefinite-lived intangible assets which are initially recorded at cost. Accordingly, if the fair market value at any point during the reporting period is lower than the carrying value, an impairment loss equal to the difference will be recognized in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in our Consolidated Statement of Operations. Impairment losses cannot be recovered for any subsequent increase in fair value until the sale or disposal of the asset. Gains on the sale of digital assets, if any, will be recognized based on the fair value upon sale or disposal of the assets in SG&A expenses in our Consolidated Statement of Operations.

(unaudited)

In January 2022, we entered into a partnership with Immutable X Pty Limited (“IMX”) and Digital Worlds NFTs Ltd. ("Digital Worlds") pursuant to which the Company was entitled to receive digital assets in the form of IMX tokens once certain milestones have been achieved. Upon entering the agreement, we recognized the fair value of noncurrent receivables and deferred income of $79.0 million. In February 2022, upon announcement of the agreement, we recognized the fair value of noncurrent receivables and deferred income of $31.7 million. Noncurrent receivables and deferred income are recognized in other noncurrent assets and other long-term liabilities, respectively, on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. Once the IMX tokens were received, we recorded the digital asset as an indefinite-lived intangible asset and derecognized the noncurrent receivable. The deferred income is recognized over the term of the agreement. During the first quarter of 2022, we recognized $13.9 million of income in SG&A expenses in our Consolidated Statement of Operations. In February 2022, we sold the digital assets related to this transaction and recognized a gain on sale of $6.9 million in SG&A expenses in our Consolidated Statement of Operations.
At-the-Market Equity Offering
During the three months ended May 1, 2021, we sold an aggregate of 3,500,000 shares of our common stock under our at-the market equity offering program (the "ATM Transaction"). We generated $556.7 million in aggregate gross proceeds from sales under the ATM Transaction and paid an aggregate of $5.0 million in commissions to the sales agent, among other legal and administrative fees. These commissions and fees are recognized in additional paid-in capital on our Consolidated Balance Sheets and SG&A expenses in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.
3.    Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. This standard provides practical expedients for contract modifications with the transition from reference rates, such as LIBOR, that are expected to be discontinued. This guidance is applicable for our revolving line of credit, which uses LIBOR as a reference rate. The provisions of ASU 2020-04 are effective as of March 12, 2020 and may be adopted prospectively through December 31, 2022. As of January 30, 2022, we adopted this ASU with no material impact to our consolidated financial statements.
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. This standard is intended to simplify the accounting and disclosure requirements for income taxes by eliminating various exceptions in accounting for income taxes as well as clarifying and amending existing guidance to improve consistency in application of ASC 740. The provisions of ASU 2019-12 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted. As of January 30, 2022, we adopted this ASU with no material impact to our consolidated financial statements.

We expect to recognize revenue in future periods for remaining performance obligations we have associated with unredeemed gift cards, trade-in credits, reservation deposits and our PowerUp Rewards loyalty program (collectively, "unredeemed customer liabilities"), extended warranties and subscriptions to our Game Informer® magazine.
Performance obligations associated with unredeemed customer liabilities are primarily satisfied at the time customers redeem gift cards, trade-in credits, customer deposits or loyalty program points for products that we offer. Unredeemed customer liabilities are generally redeemed within one year of issuance.

5.    Fair Value Measurements and Financial Instruments
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Applicable accounting standards require disclosures that categorize assets and liabilities measured at fair value into one of three different levels depending on the observability of the inputs employed in the measurement. Level 1 inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs are observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market-corroborated inputs. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability reflecting our assumptions about pricing by market participants.

Assets and Liabilities that are Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
Assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis include our foreign currency contracts, Company-owned life insurance policies with a cash surrender value, and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities.
We value our foreign currency contracts, life insurance policies with cash surrender values and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities based on Level 2 inputs using quotations provided by major market news services, such as Bloomberg, and industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices, time value, volatility factors, and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, and other relevant economic measures, all of which are observable in active markets. When appropriate, valuations are adjusted to reflect credit considerations, generally based on available market evidence.
The following table presents our assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis, which utilize Level 2 inputs:

Assets that are Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
Assets that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis relate primarily to property and equipment, operating lease right-of-use ("ROU") assets and other intangible assets, including digital assets, which are remeasured when the estimated fair value is below its carrying value. When we determine that impairment has occurred, the carrying value of the asset is reduced to its fair value. Fair value of digital assets held are based on Level 2 inputs, as described above, and impairment losses for digital assets cannot be recovered for any subsequent increase in fair value until the sale or disposal of the asset.
During the three months ended April 30, 2022, we recognized impairment charges of $33.7 million associated with digital assets in SG&A expenses in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. These charges were recognized in the United States segment.
During the three months ended May 1, 2021, we recognized impairment charges totaling $0.6 million associated with store-level ROU assets to reflect their fair values in asset impairments in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. These charges were recognized in our United States segment.
The carrying values of our cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, net receivables, accounts payable and current portion of debt approximate their fair values due to their short-term maturities.
As of April 30, 2022, our government-guaranteed low interest French term loans due October 2022 through October 2026 ("French Term Loans") had a carrying value of $42.2 million and a fair value of $39.0 million. The fair values of our French Term Loans were estimated based on a model that discounted future principal and interest payments at interest rates available to us at the end of the period for similar debt of the same maturity, which is a Level 2 input as defined by the fair value hierarchy.

6.    Debt
During 2020, our French subsidiary, Micromania SAS, entered into six separate unsecured term loans for a total of €40.0 million, or $42.2 million, as of April 30, 2022. In the second quarter of 2021, at the request of Micromania SAS, these term loans were extended for five years, with an amortization plan for the principal starting in October 2022. The interest rate is 0.7% for three of the term loans totaling €20.0 million, and 1% for the remaining three term loans totaling €20.0 million. The French government has guaranteed 90% of the term loans pursuant to a state guaranteed loan program instituted in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of April 30, 2022, May 1, 2021 and January 29, 2022 there was $42.2 million, $48.1 million and $44.6 million of outstanding debt, including $6.5 million, $48.1 million and $4.1 million of short-term and current debt, respectively, which represents the current portion of the French Term Loans.
7.    Commitments and Contingencies
Letter of Credit Facilities
We maintain uncommitted letter of credit facilities with certain lenders that provide for the issuance of letters of credit and bank guarantees, at times supported by cash collateral. As of April 30, 2022, we had approximately $14.4 million of outstanding letters of credit and bank guarantees under these facilities.
During the three months ended April 30, 2022, there were no material changes to our commitments as disclosed in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K except as discussed in Note 6, "Debt."
Legal Proceedings
In the ordinary course of business, we are, from time to time, subject to various legal proceedings, including matters involving wage and hour employee class actions, stockholder actions and consumer class actions. We may enter into discussions regarding settlement of these and other types of lawsuits, and may enter into settlement agreements, if we believe settlement is in the best interest of our stockholders. We do not believe that any such existing legal proceedings or settlements, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.
8.    Earnings Per Share
Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities include stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested restricted stock units outstanding during the period, using the treasury stock method. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computations of diluted earnings per share if their effect would be anti-dilutive. A net loss from continuing operations causes all potentially dilutive securities to be anti-dilutive. We have certain undistributed stock awards that participate in dividends on a non-forfeitable basis, however, their impact on earnings per share under the two-class method is negligible.
The following table presents a reconciliation of shares used in calculating basic and diluted net loss per common share:

As of April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021 there were 77.3 million and 71.9 million, respectively, of shares of Class A common stock that are legally issued and outstanding or are unvested restricted share units that represent a right to one share of Class A Common Stock.
As of April 30, 2022, 12.7 million shares of our Class A common stock were directly registered with our transfer agent.

9.    Segment Information
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.
We identified segments based on a combination of geographic areas and management responsibility. Segment results for the United States include retail operations in 50 states; our ecommerce operations; and Game Informer® magazine. The United States segment also includes general and administrative expenses related to our corporate offices in the United States. Segment results for Canada include retail and ecommerce operations in Canada and segment results for Australia include retail and ecommerce operations in Australia and New Zealand. Segment results for Europe include retail and ecommerce operations in six countries. We measure segment profit using operating earnings, which is defined as income (loss) from operations before intercompany royalty fees, net interest expense and income taxes. Transactions between reportable segments consist primarily of royalties, management fees, intersegment loans and related interest. There were no material intersegment sales during the three months ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act (the "CARES Act"), which was enacted on March 27, 2020 in the United States, included measures to assist companies, including temporary changes to income and non-income-based tax laws. As of April 30, 2022, we have a $168.6 million U.S. federal income tax receivable resulting from the carryback of net operating losses allowed pursuant to the CARES Act. Income tax receivable is recognized in prepaid expenses and other current assets on our Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Our interim tax provision is determined using an estimated annual effective tax rate and adjusted for discrete taxable events and/or adjustments that may occur during the first quarter.
We recognized an income tax expense of $3.5 million, or (2.3)%, for the three months ended April 30, 2022 compared to an income tax expense of $1.3 million, or (2.0)%, for the three months ended May 1, 2021. Our effective income tax rate for both periods is primarily due to not recognizing tax benefits on certain current period losses as well as forecasted income taxes due in certain foreign and state jurisdictions in which we operate.

OVERVIEW
GameStop Corp. (“GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation established in 1996, is a leading specialty retailer offering games and entertainment products through its ecommerce properties and thousands of stores.
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Our fiscal year is composed of the 52 or 53 weeks ending on the Saturday closest to the last day of January. The fiscal year ending January 28, 2023 and the fiscal year ended January 29, 2022 each consist of 52 weeks. All three month periods presented herein contain 13 weeks. All references to years, quarters and months relate to fiscal periods rather than calendar periods. The discussion and analysis of our results of operations refers to continuing operations unless otherwise noted. Our business, like that of many retailers, is seasonal, with the major portion of the net sales realized during the fourth quarter, which includes the holiday selling season.
BUSINESS PRIORITIES
GameStop is on a strategic path to fully leverage our unique position and brand in gaming. GameStop is focused on transforming into a customer-obsessed technology company to delight gamers and is actively focused on efforts to (1) establish ecommerce excellence (2) expand our selection to deliver a market-leading offering in gaming & entertainment, (3) leverage existing strengths and assets, and (4) invest in new growth opportunities.
We are taking steps that include:
Increasing the size of our addressable market by offering vast product selection and growing our product catalog across PC gaming, collectibles, consumer electronics, toys, augmented reality, virtual reality, blockchain technology, and other categories that represent the natural extensions of our business;
Expanding fulfillment operations to improve speed of delivery and service to our customers;
Building a superior customer experience, including by establishing a U.S.-based customer care operation supported by frictionless ecommerce and in-store experience; and
Strengthening technology capabilities, including by investing in new systems, modernized ecommerce assets and an expanded, experienced talent base.
In May 2022, we announced the launch of our digital asset wallet to allow gamers and others to store, send, receive and use cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) across decentralized apps. The wallet represents our first step into blockchain technology products, and will also enable transactions on GameStop’s NFT marketplace when it launches in the second quarter of 2022.
We believe these future transformation efforts are an important aspect of our continued business to enable long-term value creation for our shareholders. Accordingly, we prioritize long-term revenue growth and market leadership over short-term margins. The Company will continue to invest in growth initiatives, while continuing to prioritize maintaining a strong balance sheet. Connected to our transformation efforts, we have incurred and may continue to incur severance, store closure costs and expenses for consultants and advisors. See "Consolidated Results of Operations—Selling, General and Administrative Expenses" for additional information.

Total$1,378.4 100.0 %$1,276.8 100.0 %$101.6 8.0 %
For the first quarter of 2022, net sales increased $101.6 million or 8.0% compared to the same prior year period. During the first quarter of 2022, net sales in our United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia segments increased by 3.0%, 24.2%, 34.2%, 10.4%, respectively, when compared to the same period last year. Our increase in net sales for the first quarter of 2022 was primarily attributable to the demand of recent gaming software on Sony and Microsoft's platforms, the continued sell-through of the Nintendo gaming product lines, and growth in our PC gaming product category, partially offset by a decline in new gaming hardware sales due to supply chain constraints and consumer demand.
Gross Profit
Gross profit decreased $31.6 million, or 9.6% during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period last year. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales declined to 21.7%, or 420 basis points, compared to 25.9% in the prior year quarter. Our gross profit for fiscal 2022 reflects increased freight costs driven by supply chain disruptions, incremental inventory reserves, market pressures, and a shift in product mix towards higher dollar lower margin categories.
13

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") increased $81.9 million or 22.1% for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the same prior year period. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased to 32.8% during the first quarter of 2022 compared to 29.0% during the first quarter of 2021. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased primarily due to costs associated with our transformation into a technology company, which include increased labor costs as the Company in-sources talent, investments in technology to support growth, and expansion of fulfillment capabilities. We expect to continue to incur costs associated with our transformation initiatives. The increase is also attributable to the net impact of digital asset related activities, partially offset by the continued benefit from lower store occupancy costs as a percent of sales driven by our cost reduction initiatives in 2020 and 2021. These reduction initiatives include 132 permanent store closures since May 1, 2021.
Interest Expense, Net
During the first quarter of 2022, interest expense, net was $0.7 million, which decreased by $24.0 million compared to the same period in 2021 primarily due to our prior year repayment of the $73.2 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 6.75 % Senior Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Senior Notes") and the remaining $216.4 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 10% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Senior Notes").
Income Tax Expense
We recognized income tax expense of $3.5 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to an income tax expense of $1.3 million for the same period in 2021. Our effective income tax rate decreased to (2.3)% for the first quarter of 2022 compared to (2.0)% for the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in the effective income tax rate compared to the prior year quarter was primarily due to a change in earnings mix.
See Item 1 of Part I, "Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements", Note 10, "Income Taxes," for additional information.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Overview
Our principal sources of liquidity are cash from operations, cash on hand, and borrowings from the capital markets, which include our revolving credit facilities. As of April 30, 2022, we had total unrestricted cash on hand of $1.0 billion and an additional $398.8 million of available borrowing capacity under our revolving credit facilities. On March 15, 2021, we repaid our outstanding borrowings of $25.0 million under our then outstanding asset-based revolving credit facility (the "2022 Revolver").
During the three months ended May 1, 2021, we sold an aggregate of 3,500,000 shares of our common stock under our at-the market equity offering program (the "ATM Transactions"). We generated $556.7 million in aggregate gross proceeds from sales under the ATM Transactions, and paid an aggregate of $5.0 million in commissions to the sales agent, among other legal and administrative fees. These commissions and fees are recognized in additional paid-in capital on our Consolidated Balance Sheets and selling, general and administration expenses in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. The net proceeds generated from sales under the ATM Transactions have been, and are expected to be, used for working capital and general corporate purposes, including repayment of indebtedness, funding our transformation, growth initiatives and product category expansion efforts, and capital expenditures and the satisfaction of our tax withholding obligations upon the vesting of shares of restricted stock held by our executive officers and other employees.
Additionally, during the first quarter of 2021, we repaid the remaining $73.2 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 2021 Senior Notes and the remaining $216.4 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 2023 Senior Notes. In the second quarter of 2021, the six separate unsecured term loans held by our French subsidiary, Micromania SAS, for a total of €40.0 million ($42.2 million as of April 30, 2022) were extended for five years.
On an ongoing basis, we evaluate and consider certain strategic operating alternatives, including divestitures, restructuring or dissolution of unprofitable business segments, as well as equity and debt financing alternatives that we believe may enhance stockholder value. The nature, amount and timing of any strategic operational change, or financing transactions that we might pursue will depend on a variety of factors, including, as of the applicable time, our available cash and liquidity and operating performance; our commitments and obligations; our capital requirements; limitations imposed under our credit arrangements; and overall market conditions.
Many of our vendors have been impacted by volatility in the supply chain financing market. Our vendors have requested and may continue to request credit support collateral for our inventory purchase obligations and the levels of such collateral will depend on a variety of factors including our inventory purchase levels, available payment terms for inventories, availability of borrowing capacity under our credit facilities, favorable credit terms and costs of providing collateral.
Sources of Liquidity; Uses of Capital
We utilize cash generated from operations and have funds available to us under our revolving credit facility to cover seasonal fluctuations in cash flows and to support our various initiatives. Our cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and consist primarily of U.S.and Government Prime money market funds and cash deposits with commercial banks.
14

In November 2021 we entered into a credit agreement for a secured asset-based credit facility comprised of a $500 million revolving line of credit which matures in November 2026 ("2026 Revolver"), and includes a $50 million swing loan revolving sub-facility, a $50 million Canadian revolving sub-facility, and a $250 million letter of credit sublimit. As of the end of the first quarter of 2022, based on our borrowing base and amounts reserved for outstanding letters of credit, total effective availability under the 2026 Revolver was $398.8 million. As of April 30, 2022, no loan amounts were outstanding under the 2026 Revolver and $51.2 million of standby letters of credit were issued and undrawn under the 2026 Revolver.
Separate from the 2026 Revolver, we maintain uncommitted facilities with certain lenders that provide for the issuance of letters of credit and bank guarantees, at times supported by cash collateral. As of April 30, 2022, we had $14.4 million of outstanding letters of credit and other bank guarantees under facilities outside of the 2026 Revolver.

Operating Activities
During the three months ended April 30, 2022, cash flows from operating activities were an outflow of $303.9 million, compared with an outflow of $18.8 million during the same period last year. Cash used in operating activities was primarily due to a $179.8 million decrease in trade payables and customer liabilities for the pay down of merchandise inventory purchases. Cash used in operating activities during the three months ended May 1, 2021 was primarily impacted by the $17.8 million make-whole premium related to the early redemption of the outstanding balance of the 2023 Senior Notes, and stock-based compensation.
Investing Activities
Cash flows from investing activities were an inflow of $66.1 million during the three months ended April 30, 2022 compared to an outflow of $14.7 million during the same period last year. Cash provided by investing activities during the three months ended April 30, 2022 was primarily attributable to proceeds from the sale of digital assets, partially offset by technological investments, and investments in two new fulfillment centers. Cash used in investing activities during the three months ended May 1, 2021 was primarily attributable to higher capital expenditures.
