NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

NOTE A – Business and Reporting Policies

Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc. ("Havertys," "the Company," "we," "our," or "us") is a retailer of a broad line of residential furniture in the middle to upper-middle price ranges. We operate all of our stores using the Havertys brand and do not franchise our concept. We operate within a single reportable segment.  The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all information and footnotes required by United States of America generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") for complete financial statements. The Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading.  The financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. We believe all adjustments, normal and recurring in nature, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. We suggest that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes included in our latest Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The preparation of interim condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities, and reported amounts of revenue and expenses. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

The Company is subject to various claims and legal proceedings covering a wide range of matters that arise in the ordinary course of its business activities.  We believe that any liability that may ultimately result from the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE B - Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements


Changes to U.S. GAAP are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in the form of accounting standards updates (ASU's) to the FASB's Accounting Standards Codification (ASC). The Company considers the applicability and impact of all ASU's. Newly effective ASU's not noted herein were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have minimal impact on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Leases.  In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 which amends various aspects of existing guidance for leases. ASU 2016-02 requires an entity to recognize assets and liabilities arising from a lease for both financing and operating leases, along with additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures. The main difference between previous U.S. GAAP and the amended standard is the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees on the balance sheet for those leases classified as operating leases under previous U.S. GAAP. As a result, we will have to recognize a liability representing our lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing our right to use the underlying asset for the lease term on the balance sheet. ASU 2016-02 is effective for Havertys beginning with the first quarter 2019 and we expect to adopt using the modified retrospective method. We are assessing the
changes to processes and internal controls to meet the standard's reporting and disclosure requirements. For example, software has been purchased that will assist in recognition of additional assets and liabilities to be included on the balance sheet related to operating leases with durations greater than twelve months, with certain allowable exceptions. Our current undiscounted minimum commitments under noncancelable operating leases is approximately $136.3 million. Upon adoption, a substantial portion of these lease commitments will be recorded at their net present value as a right of use asset and a lease obligation. The ultimate impact of adopting ASU 2016-02 will depend on our lease portfolio as of the adoption date. We do not believe adoption of this standard will have a significant impact on our consolidated statement of earnings, stockholders' equity, and cash flows.

NOTE C – Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

ASU 2014-09
On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC Topic 606 or "the new standard"). The new standard requires a company to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services.

We sell home furnishings and recognize revenue at delivery. Havertys does not have a loyalty program or sell gift certificates. We also do not offer coupons for redemption for future purchases, such as those that other retailers might issue for general marketing purposes or for those issued based in conjunction with prior purchases.

The product protection plan we offer is handled by a third-party and we have no performance obligation or inventory risk associated with this service. Havertys is acting as an agent for these sales and records this revenue at the time the covered products are delivered to the customer.

Estimated refunds for returns and allowances are recorded based on estimated margin using our historical return patterns.  Under the new standard, we record estimated refunds for sales returns on a gross basis rather than on a net basis. The standard requires the carrying value of the return asset to be presented separately from inventory and subject to impairment testing on its own, separately from inventory on hand. At September 30, 2018, the estimated return inventory was $0.8 million and is included in the line item "Other current assets" and the estimated refund liability was $2.0 million and is included in the line item "Accrued liabilities" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

We record customer deposits when payments are received in advance of the delivery of merchandise, which totaled $30.5 million and $27.8 million at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.  Of the customer deposit liabilities at December 31, 2017, approximately $27.6 million has been recognized through net sales in the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

We adopted ASU 2014-09 using the modified retrospective method. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under the new standard, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting. We expect the impact of the adoption of the new standard to be immaterial to our net income on an ongoing basis.  The cumulative effect of the changes made to our consolidated January 1, 2018 balance sheet for the adoption of the new revenue standard were as follows (in thousands):

Our contracts are similar as to customer types, deliverables, timing of transfer of goods and other characteristics and we elected to use the portfolio method in accounting for our contracts.
·
We exclude from revenue amounts collected from customers for sales tax.
·
We finance less than 1% of sales.  We do not adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component since receivables from financed sales are paid within one year of delivery.
·
We expense sales commissions within SG&A at the time revenue is recognized because the amortization period would be one year or less.
·
We do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations because delivery is made within one year of the customer purchase.

The following table presents the differences resulting from the adoption of ASC Topic 606 on line items in our condensed consolidated balance sheet. The impact of the adoption on line items in our other financial statements was not material.

ASU 2016-18
We adopted ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (ASC Topic 230): Restricted Cash (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force) on January 1, 2018 using the required retrospective transition method.  This ASU requires companies to include amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in cash and cash equivalents when reconciling beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. 

Our restricted cash equivalents are funds used to collateralize a portion of our workers' compensation obligations as required by our insurance carrier.  These escrowed funds are shown as restricted cash and cash equivalents on our balance sheets and are investments in money market funds held by an agent. The annual agreement with our carrier governing these funds expires on December 31, 2018.

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash equivalents reported within the balance sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the statements of cash flows.

NOTE D – Interim LIFO Calculations

An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method can be made only at the end of each year based on actual inventory levels and costs at that time. Accordingly, interim LIFO calculations must necessarily be based on management's estimates of inventory levels and inflation rates. Since these estimates may be affected by factors beyond management's control, interim results are subject to change based upon the final year-end LIFO inventory valuations.

NOTE E – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The fair values of our cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and customer deposits approximate their carrying values due to their short-term nature. The assets related to our self-directed, non-qualified deferred compensation plans for certain executives and employees are valued using quoted market prices multiplied by the number of shares held, a Level 1 valuation technique. The assets related to our deferred compensation plans totaled approximately $6.7 million at September 30, 2018 and $6.0 million at December 31, 2017 and are included in other assets.  The related liabilities of the same amounts are included in other liabilities.

NOTE F – Credit Arrangement

We have a $60.0 million revolving credit facility secured by our inventory, accounts receivable, cash, and certain other personal property.  Availability fluctuates based on a borrowing base calculation reduced by outstanding letters of credit.  Amounts available to borrow are based on the lesser of the borrowing base or the $60.0 million line amount, reduced by $6.0 million if a fixed charge coverage ratio test for the immediately preceding 12 months are not met. The credit facility contains covenants that, among other things, limit our ability to incur certain types of debt or liens, enter into mergers and consolidations or use proceeds of borrowing for other than permitted uses. The covenants also limit our ability to pay dividends upon reaching $16.5 million of unused availability.

The borrowing base was $54.4 million at September 30, 2018, there were no outstanding letters of credit, and the net availability was $48.4 million. The facility, which has not been used since its origination, matures March 31, 2021.  

NOTE G – Other income, net
Other income includes gains and losses related to fixed assets.  We had net losses from real estate sales of approximately $0.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and gains from insurance recoveries on stores damaged or destroyed of approximately $0.3 million and $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
NOTE H – Income Taxes

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act") was signed into law on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act significantly revised the U.S. corporate income tax by lowering the statutory corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. It also eliminated certain deductions and enhanced and extended through 2026 the option to claim accelerated depreciation deductions on qualified property. Under the guidance provided in the SEC's Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 ("SAB 118"), we recorded provisional amounts for the impact of the Tax Act during the fourth quarter of 2017.  We have completed our analysis of the provisional amounts and no adjustments are necessary for the remeasurement of the related deferred tax balance.

Our tax provision for interim periods is determined using an estimate of our annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items, if any, that are taken into account in the relevant period. Each quarter we update our estimate of the annual effective tax rate, and if our estimated tax rate changes, we make a year to date adjustment.
 
Our effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was 25.6% and 37.7%, respectively. The primary difference in the effective rate and the statutory rate is due to state income taxes and additional tax expenses of $0.1 million in 2018 and tax benefit of $0.2 million in 2017 from vested stock awards.

Includes shares repurchased from employees for employee's tax liability.

Grants of equity awards are made to certain officers and key employees under stockholder approved long-term incentive plans. The service-based awards generally vest over one or four years. The number of performance-based awards to be issued is based on the achievement of the criteria established at the time of the grant and cliff vest after three years. All awards are settled in shares of our common stock.

The total fair value of service-based awards that vested in 2018 was approximately $2.6 million. The total fair value of performance-based awards that vested in 2018 was approximately $1.0 million.  The aggregate intrinsic value of service-based and performance-based awards at September 30, 2018 was approximately $4.6 million and $5.5 million, respectively. The aggregate intrinsic value of vested and outstanding stock-settled appreciation rights at September 30, 2018 was approximately $0.2 million.

The compensation for all awards is being charged to selling, general and administrative expenses over the respective grant's vesting periods, primarily on a straight-line basis. Stock based compensation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was approximately $3.8 million and $3.0 million, respectively.

As of September 30, 2018, the remaining unamortized compensation cost related to unvested equity awards was approximately $5.4 million and is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.2 years.

NOTE J – Earnings Per Share
We report our earnings per share using the two-class method.  The income per share for each class of common stock is calculated assuming 100% of our earnings are distributed as dividends to each class of common stock based on their contractual rights.

The Common Stock of the Company has a preferential dividend rate of at least 105% of the dividend paid on the Class A Common Stock. The Class A Common Stock, which has ten votes per share as opposed to one vote per share for the Common Stock (on all matters other than the election of directors), may be converted at any time on a one-for-one basis into Common Stock at the option of the holder of the Class A Common Stock.

Net Sales

Our sales are generated by customer purchases of home furnishings.  Revenue is recognized upon delivery to the customer.

Comparable-store or "comp-store" sales for the periods presented are sales from our website and stores open throughout the period and the corresponding prior year period.  If a store expansion results in a 10% or greater increase in selling square footage, its sales are removed from the comparable store sales base until it has been open a full 12 months.

Our average written ticket was up 5.9% and custom order upholstery sales grew 10.6% for the third quarter compared to the 2017 period.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 our average written ticket was up 3.7% and custom upholstery sales rose 9.6%.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2018 was 54.8%, up 90 basis points compared to the prior year period. Merchandise pricing and mix and reduced product markdowns and a smaller negative LIFO impact contributed to the increase in gross profit margin. Gross profit for the nine months of 2018 was 54.6% compared to 54.4% for the same period of 2017.

Our expectation for annual gross profit margins for 2018 is approximately 54.5% compared to annual gross profit margins of 54.3% in 2017.  We do not believe the tariffs will have a material impact on our 2018 financial results (see Part II, Item 1.A.).

Substantially all of our occupancy and home delivery costs are included in selling, general and administrative expenses as are a portion of our warehousing expenses. Accordingly, our gross profit may not be comparable to those entities that include these costs in cost of goods sold.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Our SG&A costs as a percent of sales were 49.0% for the third quarter of 2018 and 49.2% for the same period in 2017. Total SG&A dollars increased $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the prior year period. Occupancy expense was down $0.4 million due to store closures partially offset by higher property taxes. Warehouse and delivery costs were up $0.7 million due to higher wages and temporary labor and fuel costs. Administrative costs rose $0.6 million due to higher compensation costs offset by decreases in group medical costs.

Our SG&A costs as a percent of sales for the first nine months of the year were 49.8% and 49.5% for 2017. Total SG&A dollars increased $3.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the prior year period. Our selling costs increased $1.0 million in 2018 over 2017 in step with higher commissions and benefits and due to greater third-party financing costs on more utilization of longer-term programs.  Warehouse and delivery expenses were up $1.4 million due to increased


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

compensation and fuel costs.  Administrative costs rose $1.4 million due to increased salaries and group medical costs.

We classify our SG&A expenses as either variable or fixed and discretionary.  Our variable expenses include the costs in the selling and delivery categories and certain warehouse expenses as these amounts will generally move in tandem with our level of sales. The remaining categories and expenses are classified as fixed and discretionary because these costs do not fluctuate with sales. 

The following table outlines our SG&A expenses by classification (amounts and percentages may not always add due to rounding):

The fixed and discretionary expenses rose slightly for the first nine months of 2018 versus 2017. Our normal fixed and discretionary type expenses within SG&A costs are expected to be approximately $257.0 to $259.0 million for the full year 2018 versus $253.2 million for the same costs in 2017. The increase is largely due to higher employee compensation and benefits and inflation. The variable type costs within SG&A for the full year of 2018 are anticipated to be 18.5% compared to 18.2% in 2017 as a percent of sales due to increases in delivery, personnel costs and third-party credit costs.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our primary cash requirements include working capital needs, contractual obligations, income tax obligations and capital expenditures.  We have funded these requirements primarily through cash generated from operations.  We have no funded debt and our lease obligations are primarily due to arrangements that are not considered capital leases but must be recorded on our balance sheets.  We believe funds generated from our expected results of operations and available cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund our primary obligations, dividends, stock repurchases and complete capital projects that we have underway or currently contemplate.

We also have a $60.0 million revolving credit facility.  Refer to Note F to the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on our credit facility. The availability at September 30, 2018 was $48.4 million and there were no borrowed amounts outstanding.

Our cash flows provided by operating activities totaled $62.5 million in the first nine months of 2018 compared to $48.7 million for the same period of 2017.  This increase was due to larger increases in accounts payable and accrued liabilities and in other assets and liabilities in 2018 versus 2017 partly offset by larger increases in inventories and smaller increases in customer deposits in 2018 compared to 2017. For additional information about the changes in our assets and liabilities refer to our Balance Sheet Changes discussion.

Our cash flows used in investing activities totaled $15.8 million in the first nine months of 2018 versus $14.3 million for the same period of 2017. This increase was due to greater capital expenditures in 2018 offset by larger proceeds from sales of property and equipment.





Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Continued)

Financing activities used cash of $29.9 million in the first nine months of 2018 compared to $11.0 million for the same period of 2017. This increase was primarily due to $14.4 million of common stock purchases in 2018 and a $3.1 million increase in dividends paid.

Balance Sheet Changes for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

Our balance sheet as of September 30, 2018, as compared to our balance sheet as of December 31, 2017, changed as follows:

·
increase in inventories of $4.9 million to meet demand and prepare for the fourth quarter;
·
reduction in net property and equipment of $8.9 million as depreciation and disposals outpaced additions;
·
increase in accounts payable of $4.4 million due to timing of inventory purchases;
·
increase in accrued liabilities of $4.1 million due to accruals for real estate and property taxes and the change in accounting for ASC Topic 606; and
·
increase in other liabilities of $5.5 million primarily due to receipt of incentives that will amortize over approximately six years.

These plans combined with other changes should decrease net selling space in 2018 by approximately 2.2%.  We also completed the expansion of our Western Distribution Center in the third quarter of 2018. Total capital expenditures are estimated to be $20.0 million in 2018 depending on the timing of spending for new projects. We will have completed our store closure activity at the end of 2018 and expect to add new locations in fill-in markets in 2019.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of September 30, 2018, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements or obligations.

Critical Accounting Estimates

Critical accounting estimates are those that we believe are both significant and that require us to make difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often because we need to estimate the effect of inherently uncertain matters. We base our estimates and judgments on historical experiences and various other factors that we believe to be appropriate under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates, and we might obtain different estimates if we used different assumptions or conditions. Our critical accounting estimates are identified and described in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. We had no significant changes in those critical accounting estimates since our last annual report.



 
Forward-Looking Information
Certain of the statements in this Form 10-Q, particularly those anticipating future performance, business prospects, growth and operating strategies and similar matters, and those that include the words "believes," "anticipates," "estimates" or similar expressions constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  For those statements, Havertys claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. There can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements will be accurate because they are based on many assumptions, which involve risks and uncertainties.  The following important factors could cause future results to differ: changes in the economic environment; changes in the housing market; changes in industry conditions; competition; changes in consumer preferences and spending patterns; merchandise costs; the imposition of tariffs and other trade barriers and the effect of retaliatory trade measures; energy costs; timing and level of capital expenditures; introduction of new products; rationalization of operations; and other risks identified in Havertys' SEC reports and public announcements.

Item 3.     Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

There have been no material changes with respect to our financial instruments and their related market risks since the date of the Company's most recent annual report.

Item 4.     Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this report, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, our management, including the CEO and CFO, concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.




PART II.  OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.    Legal Proceedings

Information regarding legal proceedings is described under the subheading "Business and Reporting Policies" in Note A to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements set forth in this Form 10-Q.

Item 1A.  Risk Factors

In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results.  The risks described in this report and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing the Company.  Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or future results.

We are providing the following information regarding changes that have occurred to the previously disclosed risk factors in our Form 10-K. Except for such additional information, we believe there have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in our Form 10-K.

Proposed increases in tariffs would result in increased prices and could adversely affect our consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.
Effective September 24, 2018, the Trump Administration implemented Section 301 tariffs of 10% of the cost at duty of certain furniture, accessories, furniture parts, and raw materials for furniture manufacturing products imported into the U.S from China. The tariffs are scheduled to increase to 25% on January 1, 2019. These tariffs will increase our costs for not only finished products we purchase that are manufactured in China but also the cost of Chinese parts and components for products we purchase that are manufactured in the U.S.  We imported approximately $100 million of inventory in 2017 that was manufactured in China. We were the importer of record on approximately 12% of that amount and the remainder was purchased through third party suppliers. We do not believe the 10% tariffs will have a material impact on our 2018 financial results given the timing of our inventory purchases. The impact of the imposition of a 25% tariff increase is difficult to determine. The amount of any price increases from suppliers due to tariffs, as with any pricing changes, will be subject to negotiation. We may not be able to pass price increases on to our customers and may not be able to secure adequate alternative sources of products in the near term. We believe these tariffs will make gross profit improvement in 2019 difficult to achieve and may cause gross profit margin to contract. The tariffs, along with any additional tariffs or retaliatory trade restrictions implemented by other countries, could adversely affect the operating profits of our business and customer demand for certain of our products which could have an adverse effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows.


Item 2.  Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

The board of directors has authorized management, at its discretion, to purchase and retire limited amounts of our common stock and Class A common stock. A program was initially approved by the board on November 3, 1986 with subsequent authorizations made as to the number of shares to be purchased. On May 8, 2018, the board authorized management to purchase up to $10.0 million of common and Class A common stock after the balance of a previous authorization was utilized.
