Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

Note 1 — Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Lawson Products, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not contain all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. Reference should be made to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. In the opinion of the Company, all normal recurring adjustments have been made that are necessary to present fairly the results of operations for the interim periods. Operating results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020.

The Company has two operating segments. The first segment, the Lawson operating segment, distributes maintenance, repair and operations ("MRO") products to customers primarily through a network of sales representatives offering vendor managed inventory ("VMI") service to customers throughout the United States and Canada. The second segment, The Bolt Supply House Ltd. ("Bolt Supply") operating segment, distributes MRO products primarily through its branches located in Western Canada. Bolt Supply had 14 branches in operation at the end of the second quarter 2020.

Note 2 - Revenue Recognition

As part of the Company's revenue recognition analysis, it concluded that it has two separate performance obligations, and accordingly, two separate revenue streams: products and services. As a result, the Company reports two separate revenue streams and two separate costs of revenues. Under the definition of a contract as defined by ASC 606, the Company considers contracts to be created at the time an order to purchase product is agreed upon regardless of whether or not there is a written contract.

Performance Obligations

Lawson has two operating segments; the Lawson segment and the Bolt Supply segment.

The Lawson segment has two distinct performance obligations offered to its customers: a product performance obligation and a service performance obligation. Although the Company has identified that it offers its customers both a product and a service obligation, the customer only receives one invoice per transaction with no price breakout between these obligations. The Company does not price its offerings based on any breakout between these obligations.

Lawson generates revenue primarily from the sale of MRO products to its customers. Revenue related to product sales is recognized at the time that control of the product has been transferred to the customer; either at the time the product is shipped or the time the product has been received by the customer. The Company does not commit to long-term contracts to sell customers a certain minimum quantity of products.

The Lawson segment offers a vendor managed inventory ("VMI") service proposition to its customers. A portion of these services, primarily related to stocking of product and maintenance of the MRO inventory, is provided a short period of time after control of the purchased product has been transferred to the customer. Since some components of VMI service have not been provided at the time the control of the product transfers to the customer, that portion of expected consideration is deferred until the time that those services have been provided.

The Bolt Supply segment does not provide VMI services for its customers or provide services in addition to product sales to customers. Revenue is recognized at the time that control of the product has been transferred to the customer which is either upon delivery or shipment depending on the terms of the contract.

Accounting Policy Elections

The Company has elected to treat shipping and handling costs after the control of the product has been transferred to the customer as a fulfillment cost.

Sales taxes that are imposed on our sales and collected from customers are excluded from revenues.

Table of Contents

The Company expenses sales commissions when incurred as the amortization period is one year or less.

Certain Judgments

The Company employs certain judgments to estimate the dollar amount of revenue, and related expenses, allocated to the sale of product and service. These judgments include, among others, the percentage of customers that take advantage of the VMI services offered, the amount of revenue to be allocated to the VMI service based on the value of the service to its customers, and the amount of time after control of the product passes to the customer that the VMI service obligation is completed. It is assumed that any customer who averages placing orders at a frequency of longer than 30 days does not take advantage of the available VMI services offered. The estimate of the cost of sales is based on expenses directly related to sales representatives that provide direct VMI services to the customer.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the ability of the Lawson sales representatives to call on their customers in person, particularly in the first half of the second quarter of 2020. As a result, Lawson sales representatives were not able to perform VMI services with the same frequency in the second quarter of 2020 as they were in prior quarters. As a result, the amount of revenue allocated to the service revenue component is lower in the second quarter of 2020 than in previous quarters. Additionally the amount of service costs allocated to gross margin from selling expense is lower than in prior quarters. The Company expects the COVID-19 pandemic to continue to impact the allocation of service revenue and service related costs for the foreseeable future, though the Company is unable to determine the extent of the impact at this time.

At June 30, 2020, the Company had a deferred revenue liability of $0.5 million and a deferred expense of $0.2 million for related expenses associated with the deferred service performance obligations, respectively. The decrease in deferred revenues and related expenses associated with the deferred service performance obligations is driven by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The deferral of revenue and expenses does not affect the amount, timing and any uncertainty of cash flows generated from operations.

The Company performed a quantitative impairment test on the Bolt goodwill as of March 31, 3020 and June 30, 2020. As of June 30, 2020 the Bolt reporting unit's fair value exceeded its carrying value by approximately $5.4 million or 16%. As of June 30, 2020 goodwill allocated to the Bolt operating unit was $12.8 million. Related to the Lawson reporting unit, the Company performed a qualitative assessment as of March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020 and determined that it was more likely than not the fair value of the reporting unit exceeded the carrying value of the reporting unit.

Although the Company believes the projected future operating results and cash flows and related estimates regarding the values were based on reasonable assumptions, it is reasonably possible that estimates made may be materially and adversely impacted in the near term as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including impairment losses related to goodwill.

Amortization expense of $0.7 million and $0.3 million related to intangible assets was recorded in General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The Company identified a "trigger event" as of March 31, 2020 due to adverse changes in the business climate related to COVID-19. In accordance with ASC 350, the Company tested the definite life intangible assets considering the factors in ASC 360 and determined that the undiscounted future cash flows exceeded the net carrying value of the intangible assets. As of June 30, 2020, there were no events or circumstances that indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable and thus no recoverability test was required.

Note 7 - Leases

The Company leases property used for distribution centers, office space, and Bolt branch locations throughout the US and Canada, along with various equipment located in distribution centers and corporate headquarters. The Company is also a lessor of its Decatur, Alabama property previously used in conjunction with a discontinued operation.

Lawson Operating Leases

Lawson MRO primarily has two types of leases: leases for real estate and leases for equipment. Operating real estate leases that have a material impact on the operations of the Company are related to the Company's distribution network and headquarters. The Company possesses several additional property leases that are month to month basis and are not material in nature. Lawson MRO does not possess any leases that have residual value guarantees. Several property leases include renewal clauses which vary in length and may not include specific rent renewal amounts. The Company will revise the value of the right of use assets and associated lease liabilities when the Company is reasonably certain it will renew a lease.

The value of the Right Of Use ("ROU") assets and associated lease liabilities is calculated using the total cash payments over the course of the lease, discounted to the present value using the appropriate incremental borrowing rate. The right of use asset will be amortized over its useful life. The lease liability is reduced in conjunction with the lease payments made, with adjustments made to the lease liability in order to account for non-straight line cash payments through the life of the lease.

Bolt primarily leases the real estate for its branch locations as well as its distribution center in Calgary, Alberta. Bolt possesses additional property leases that are month to month and not material in nature. Bolt property leases include renewal clauses which vary in length and may not include specific rent renewal amounts. The Company will revise the value of the right of use asset and associated lease liability when the Company is reasonably certain it will renew a lease.

Significant Assumptions

The Company is required to determine a discount rate for the present value of lease payments. If the rate is not included in the lease or cannot be readily determined, the Company must estimate the incremental borrowing rate to be used for the discount rate. The discount rate of Lawson MRO and Bolt will be reviewed on a periodic basis and updated as needed.

The expenses and income generated by the leasing activity of Lawson as lessee for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019 are as follows (Dollars in thousands):
