Forward-Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other legal authority, which statements may involve substantial risk and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or our future financial or operating performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans, or intentions.
You should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. We cannot assure you that the events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur at all or on a specified timeframe. The cautionary statements set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including in Part I – Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and elsewhere, identify important factors which you should consider in evaluating our forward-looking statements. These factors include, among other things:
our ability to sustain recent growth rates;
our ability to sustain the increase in our Internet sales;
our ability to manage the growth of our operations over time;
our ability to maintain, grow and enforce our brand and trademark rights;
our ability to improve our products and develop new products;
our ability to obtain, grow and enforce intellectual property related to our business and avoid infringement or other violation of the intellectual property rights of others;
our ability to successfully open and operate new showrooms;
the impact of any systems interruptions that impair customer access to our sites or other performance failures in our technology infrastructure;
any decline in consumer spending including due to negative impact from economic conditions;
our ability to compete and succeed in a highly competitive and evolving industry; and
the effect and consequences of current economic conditions, including the impact of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) public health crisis, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and inflation on our business operations and continuity.
We caution you that the foregoing list may not contain all the forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. We have based the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q primarily on our current expectations and projections about future events and trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects. The outcome of the events described in these forward-looking statements is subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors described in the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all risks and uncertainties that could have an impact on the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We cannot assure you that the results, events, and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur at all or on a specified timeline, and actual results, events, or circumstances could differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.
ii

The forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q relate only to events as of the date on which the statements are made. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or to reflect new information or the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as required by law. We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions, or expectations disclosed in our forward-looking statements, and you should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures, or investments we may make.

THE LOVESAC COMPANY
CONDENSED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE THIRTEEN TWENTY-SIX WEEKS ENDED JULY 31, 2022 AND AUGUST 1, 2021
NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND OPERATIONS
The balance sheet of The Lovesac Company (the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”) as of January 30, 2022, which has been derived from our audited financial statements as of and for the 52-week year ended January 30, 2022, and the accompanying interim unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial reporting. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements, prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”), have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations. The financial information presented herein, which is not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full current fiscal year, reflects all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the interim unaudited condensed financial statements. Such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. These condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements filed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2022.
Due to the seasonality of the Company’s business, with the majority of our activity occurring in the fourth quarter of each fiscal year, the results of operations for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year.
Nature of Operations
The Company is a technology driven company that designs, manufactures and sells unique, high quality furniture derived through its proprietary “Designed for Life” approach which results in products that are built to last a lifetime and designed to evolve as our customers’ lives do. The Company markets and sells its products through modern and efficient showrooms and, increasingly, through online sales directly at www.lovesac.com, supported by direct-to-consumer touch-feel points in the form of our own showrooms, which include our newly created mobile concierge and kiosks, as well as through shop-in-shops and online pop-up-shops with third party retailers. The Company was formed as a Delaware corporation on January 3, 2017, in connection with a corporate reorganization with SAC Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SAC LLC”), the predecessor entity to the Company.
COVID-19
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global pandemic and, in the following weeks, the U.S. federal, state and local governments issued lockdown orders and related safety measures impacting the operations of our showrooms and consumer demand. Although there has been a general improvement in conditions, there continues to be significant uncertainties around the scope and severity of the pandemic, its impact on the global economy, including supply chains, and other business disruptions that may impact our operating results and financial condition. We continue to follow the guidance issued by federal, state and local governments and health organizations and have taken measures to protect the safety of our associates and customers.
NOTE 2 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
The Company has considered recently issued accounting pronouncements and they were considered to be not applicable or the adoption of such pronouncements will not have a material impact on its condensed financial statements.

NOTE 4 – INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.8 million and $0.5 million and $3.5 million and $0.7 million for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, respectively. The effective tax rate was 28.0% and 27.9% for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared with 5.8% and 6.0% for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021. The effective tax rate varies from the 21% federal statutory tax rate for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 primarily due to state taxes. Comparatively, the effective tax rate for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021 was lower than the 21% federal statutory tax rate primarily due to the release of a full valuation allowance on the Company’s net deferred tax assets. The valuation allowance was fully released as of the end of fiscal year 2022.

The Company does not anticipate any material adjustments relating to unrecognized tax benefits within the next twelve months; however, the ultimate outcome of tax matters is uncertain and unforeseen results can occur. The Company had no material interest or penalties during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, respectively, and does not anticipate any such items during the next twelve months. The Company's policy is to record interest and penalties directly related to uncertain tax positions as income tax expense in the condensed statements of operations.
NOTE 5 – BASIC AND DILUTED NET INCOME PER COMMON SHARE
Basic net income per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per common share includes, in periods in which they are dilutive, the effect of those potentially dilutive securities where the average market price of the common stock exceeds the exercise prices for the respective periods.
For the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022, the effects of 687,528 shares of common stock related to restricted stock units and warrants to purchase 281,750 shares of common stock were included in the diluted share calculation and there were 495,366 shares of common stock underlying stock options of potentially dilutive shares which may be issued in the future that were excluded from the diluted net income per share calculation because the effect of including these potentially dilutive shares was antidilutive. For the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, the effects of 687,528 shares of common stock related to restricted stock units, 495,366 shares of common stock underlying stock options and warrants to purchase 281,750 shares of common stock were included in the diluted share calculation and there were no anti-dilutive awards during this period.
For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, the effects of 558,021 shares of common stock related to restricted stock units, 495,366 shares of common stock underlying stock options and warrants to purchase 281,750 shares of common stock were included in the diluted share calculation.
NOTE 6 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Leases
The Company leases its office, warehouse facilities and retail showrooms under operating lease agreements which expire at various dates through January 2033. The Company determines if a contract contains a lease at inception based on our right to control the use of an identified asset and our right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of that identified asset. Certain operating leases have renewal options and rent escalation clauses. We assess these options to determine if we are reasonably certain of exercising these options based on all relevant economic and financial factors. Any options that meet these criteria are included in the lease term at lease commencement.
Lease right-of-use assets represent the right to use an underlying asset pursuant to the lease for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement of an arrangement where it is determined at inception that a lease exists. These assets and liabilities are initially recognized based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term calculated using our incremental borrowing rate generally applicable to the location of the lease right-of-use asset, unless an implicit rate is readily determinable. We combine lease and certain non-lease components for our showroom real estate leases in determining the lease payments subject to the initial present value calculation. Lease right-of-use assets include upfront lease payments and exclude lease incentives, where applicable. Lease terms include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that those options will be exercised.
Lease expense for operating leases consists of both fixed and variable components. Expense related to fixed lease payments are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Variable lease payments are generally expensed as incurred, where applicable, and include certain index-based changes in rent, certain non-lease components, such as maintenance and other services provided by the lessor, and other charges included in the lease. Leases with an initial term of twelve months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. In addition, certain of our equipment lease agreements include variable lease payments, which are based on the usage of the underlying asset. The variable portion of payments are not included in the initial measurement of the asset or lease liability due to uncertainty of the payment amount and are recorded as lease expense in the period incurred.
7

ASC 842 requires companies to use the rate implicit in the lease whenever that rate is readily determinable and if the interest rate is not readily determinable, then a lessee may use its incremental borrowing rate. Our leases do not have an interest rate implicit in the lease. As a result, for purposes of measuring our ROU asset and lease liability, we determined our incremental borrowing rate by computing the rate of interest that we would have to pay to (i) borrow on a collateralized basis (ii) over a similar term (iii) at an amount equal to the total lease payments and (iv) in a similar economic environment. We determine incremental borrowing rates as of the first day of each fiscal year and analyze changes in interest rates and the Company's credit profile to determine if the rates need to be updated during the fiscal year. The lease term for all of our lease arrangements include the noncancelable period of the lease plus, if applicable, any additional periods covered by an option to extend the lease that is reasonably certain to be exercised by the Company. Our leases generally do not include termination options for either party to the lease or restrictive financial or other covenants. Some of our leases contain variable lease payments based on a Consumer Price Index or percentage of sales, which are excluded from the measurement of the lease liability.

During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, the Company recognized operating lease expense of $5.8 million and $4.5 million and $11.1 million and $9.0 million, respectively. In addition, during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, we recognized $4.0 million and $3.0 million and $6.6 million and $4.3 million, respectively, for index-based changes in rent, maintenance, real estate taxes, insurance and other charges included in the lease as well as rental expenses related to short term leases.
We did not recognize any impairment charges associated with showroom-level ROU assets during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022. During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, we recognized impairment charges totaling $0.6 million associated with showroom-level ROU assets that are included as part of selling, general and administrative expenses.

Severance Contingency
The Company has various employment agreements with its senior level executives. A number of these agreements have severance provisions, ranging from 12 to 18 months of salary, in the event those employees are terminated without cause. The total amount of exposure to the Company under these agreements was $5.6 million at July 31, 2022 if all executives with employment agreements were terminated without cause and the full amount of severance was payable.
Legal Contingency
The Company is involved in various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of business. Management cannot presently predict the outcome of these matters, although management believes, based in part on the advice of counsel, that the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a materially adverse effect on the Company’s condensed financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 7 – FINANCING ARRANGEMENTS
The Company has a line of credit with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells”). On March 25, 2022, the line of credit with Wells was amended and increased from $25.0 million to allow the Company to borrow up to $40.0 million, subject to borrowing base and availability restrictions, and will mature in March 2024. Borrowings are limited to 85% of eligible credit card receivables plus 90% of eligible wholesale receivables plus 86% of the net recovery percentage for the eligible inventory multiplied by the value of such eligible inventory of the Company for the period from December 16 of each year until October 14 of the immediately following year, with a seasonal increase to 90% of the net recovery percentage for the period from October 15 of each year until December 15 of such year, seasonal advance rate, minus applicable reserves established by Wells. The amended agreement contains a financial covenant that requires us to maintain undrawn availability under the credit facility of at least 10% of the lesser of (i) the aggregate commitments in the amount of $40.0 million and (ii) the amounts available under the credit facility based on eligible accounts receivable and inventory. As of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, the Company’s borrowing availability under the line of credit with Wells was $36.0 million and $22.5 million, respectively. As of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, there were no borrowings outstanding on this line of credit.
Under the amended line of credit with Wells, the Company may elect that revolving loans bear interest at either a base rate or a term Secured Overnight Funds Rate ("SOFR") based rate, plus, in either case, a margin determined by reference to our quarterly average excess availability under the line of credit and ranging from 0.50% to 0.75% for borrowings accruing interest at a base rate and from 1.625% to 1.850% for borrowings accruing interest at term SOFR. Swing line loans will at all times accrue interest at a base rate plus the applicable margin. The lower margins described above will apply initially and will adjust thereafter from time to time based on the quarterly average excess availability under the line of credit.

Equity Incentive Plan
The Company adopted the Amended and Restated 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Equity Plan”) which provides for awards in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, performance shares, performance units, cash-based awards and other stock-based awards. All awards shall be granted within 10 years from the effective date of the 2017 Equity Plan. On June 2, 2022, the stockholders of the Company approved of the Second Amended and Restated 2017 Equity Incentive Plan that increased the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance thereunder by 550,000 shares of common stock. The number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the 2017 Equity Plan was 2,654,889 at July 31, 2022.
Stock Options
In June 2019, the Company granted 495,366 non-statutory stock options to certain officers of the Company with an option price of $38.10 per share. 100% of the stock options are subject to vesting on the third anniversary of the date of grant if the officers are still employed by the Company and the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the prior 40 consecutive trading days has been at least $75 by the third anniversary of the grant. Both the employment and the market condition must be satisfied no later than June 5, 2024 or the options will terminate. These options were valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model to account for the path dependent market conditions that stipulate when and whether or not the options shall vest. The 495,366 stock options were modified in fiscal 2022 to extend the term of the options through June 5, 2024. This resulted in additional compensation of approximately $0.9 million of which, $0.3 million was recorded upon modification with the remaining expense to be recognized over the remaining expected term. The market condition was met on June 5, 2021, which was the date on which the average closing price of the Company’s common stock had been at least $75 for 40 consecutive trading days. The options vested and became exercisable on June 5, 2022 as the officers were still employed on that date.
A summary of the status of our stock options as of July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, and the changes during the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021 is presented below:

NOTE 11 – BARTER ARRANGEMENTS
The Company has a bartering arrangement with a third-party vendor, whereby the Company will provide inventory in exchange for media credits. The Company exchanged $3.0 million and $3.9 million of inventory for certain media credits during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ending July 31, 2022. The Company did not exchange any inventory for certain media credits during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ending August 1, 2021.
The contribution to the Company's gross profit from its bartering arrangement was $6.5 million and $8.2 million during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ending July 31, 2022. There was no contribution to the Company's gross profit from its bartering arrangement during the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ending August 1, 2021.
The Company had $14.1 million and $3.4 million of unused media credits remaining as of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, respectively, which is included in “Prepaid and other current assets” on the accompanying condensed balance sheet.
The Company accounts for barter transactions under ASC Topic No. 845 “Nonmonetary Transactions.” Barter transactions with commercial substance are recorded at the estimated fair value of the products exchanged, unless the products received have a more readily determinable estimated fair value. Revenue associated with barter transactions is recorded at the time of the exchange of the related assets.
NOTE 12 – REVENUE RECOGNITION
The Company’s revenue consists substantially of product sales. The Company reports product sales net of discounts and recognizes them at the point in time when control transfers to the customer, which generally occurs upon our delivery to a third-party carrier.
Estimated refunds for returns and allowances are recorded using our historical return patterns, adjusting for any changes in returns policies. The Company records estimated refunds for net sales returns on a monthly basis as a reduction of net sales and cost of sales on the condensed statements of operations and an increase in inventory and customers returns liability on the condensed balance sheets. There was a returns allowance recorded on the condensed balance sheet in the amount of $2.7 million and $2.0 million as of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, respectively, which was included in accrued expenses and $0.6 million and $0.4 million as of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, associated with sales returns included in merchandise inventories.

In some cases, deposits are received before the Company transfers control, resulting in contract liabilities. These contract liabilities are reported as deposits on the Company’s condensed balance sheet. As of July 31, 2022 and January 30, 2022, the Company recorded under customer deposit liabilities the amount of $6.5 million and $13.3 million respectively. During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, the Company recognized approximately $13.3 million and $6.0 million, respectively, related to our customer deposits.
The Company offers its products through an inventory lean omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to its customers in showrooms, which includes mobile concierge and kiosks, and through the internet. The Other channel predominantly represents sales through the use of online pop-up-shops and shop-in-shops that are staffed with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our product. The following represents net sales disaggregated by channel:

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2022. As discussed in the section titled “Forward-Looking Statements,” the following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that, if they never materialize or prove incorrect, could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to, those identified in the Forward-Looking Statements section herein and set forth below and those discussed in the sections titled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our most recent report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
We operate on a 52- or 53-week fiscal year that ends on the Sunday closest to February 1. Each fiscal year generally is comprised of four 13-week fiscal quarters, although in the years with 53 weeks, the fourth quarter represents a 14-week period.
Overview
We are a technology driven company that designs, manufactures and sells unique, high quality furniture derived through our proprietary “Designed for Life” approach which results in products that are built to last a lifetime and designed to evolve as our customers’ lives do. Our current product offering is comprised of modular couches called Sactionals, premium foam beanbag chairs called Sacs, and their associated home decor accessories. Innovation is at the center of our design philosophy with all of our core products protected by a robust portfolio of utility patents. We market and sell our products through an omni-channel platform that includes direct-to-consumer touch-feel points in the form of our own showrooms, which include our newly created mobile concierge and kiosks, online directly at www.lovesac.com, and through shop-in-shops and online pop-up-shops with third party retailers. We believe that our ecommerce centric approach, coupled with our ability to deliver our large, upholstered products through express couriers, is unique to the furniture industry.
Impact of COVID-19 and Macro-Economic Factors
Although there has been a general improvement in conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there continues to be significant uncertainties around the scope and severity of the pandemic, its impact on the global economy, including supply chains, and other business disruptions that may impact our operating results and financial condition. We continue to follow the guidance issued by federal, state and local governments and health organizations and have taken measures to protect the safety of our associates and customers.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has led to shifts in the way in which we operate, we continue to serve our customers through our omni-channel platform as our products can be easily configured in our touchpoints, shopped online and delivered quickly in a touchless way, coupled with consumers’ demand for home related products and solutions. We continue to experience growth as our net sales increased $92.6 million, or 49.9% to $277.9 million for the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, compared to $185.4 million for the twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021. Retail sales drove an increase of $62.1 million, or 55.7%, to $173.7 millions for the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, compared to $111.6 million for the twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021. Our internet sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) also increased $12.2 million or 22.2% to $66.8 million for the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, compared to $54.7 million for the twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021. New customers increased by 6.7% for the twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to 9.6% for the twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021.
The industry in which we operate is cyclical. Our revenues and results of operations are affected by general economic conditions and certain other macro-economic factors and uncertainties. Purchasers of our products are sensitive to a number of factors that influence the levels of consumer spending, including economic conditions, consumer disposable income, housing market conditions, consumer debt, interest rates, inflation and consumer confidence. We continue to monitor the impact of the pandemic and overall economic and market conditions with respect to our sources and uses of capital.

Seasonality
Our business is seasonal. As a result, our revenues fluctuate from quarter to quarter, which often affects the comparability of our results between periods. Net sales are historically higher in the fourth fiscal quarter due primarily to the impact of the holiday selling season.
Product Overview
Our products serve as a set of building blocks that can be rearranged, restyled and re-upholstered with any new setting, mitigating constant changes in fashion and style. They are built to last and evolve throughout a customer’s life.
Sactionals. Our Sactional product line currently represents a majority of our net sales. We believe our Sactionals platform is unlike competing products in its adaptability yet is comparable aesthetically to similarly priced premium couches and sectionals. Our Sactional products include a number of patented features relating to their geometry and modularity, coupling mechanisms and other features. Utilizing only two, standardized pieces, “seats” and “sides,” and approximately 200 high quality, tight-fitting covers that are removable, washable, and changeable, customers can create numerous permutations of a sectional couch with minimal effort. Customization is further enhanced with our specialty-shaped modular offerings, such as our wedge seat and roll arm side. Our custom features and accessories can be added easily and quickly to a Sactional to meet endless design, style, storage and utility preferences, reflecting our Designed for Life philosophy. Sactionals are built to meet the highest durability and structural standards applicable to fixed couches. Sactionals are comprised of standardized units and we guarantee their compatibility over time, which we believe is a major pillar of their value proposition to the consumer. Our Sactionals represented 91.9% and 90.5% of our sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, respectively. Our Sactionals represented 87.0% and 88.0% of our sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, respectively.

During October 2021, we introduced the new Sactionals StealthTech Sound + Charge product line. This unique innovation features immersive surround sound by Harman Kardon and convenient wireless charging, all seamlessly embedded and hidden inside the adaptable Sactionals platform. The System includes two Sound + Charge Sides each with embedded front- and rear-firing Harman Kardon speakers, a Subwoofer that easily integrates into a Sactionals Seat Frame and a Center Channel, all working in unison to deliver captivating surround sound that is completely hidden from view.
Sacs. We believe that our Sacs product line is a category leader in oversized beanbags. The Sac product line offers 6 different sizes ranging from 22 pounds to 95 pounds with capacity to seat 3+ people on the larger model Sacs. Filled with Durafoam, a blend of shredded foam, Sacs provide serene comfort and guaranteed durability. Their removable covers are machine washable and may be easily replaced with a wide selection of cover offerings.
Other. Our Other product line complement our Sacs and Sactionals by increasing their adaptability to meet evolving consumer demands and preferences. Our current product line offers Sactional-specific drink holders, Footsac blankets, decorative pillows, fitted seat tables and ottomans in varying styles and finishes and our unique Sactionals Power Hub, providing our customers with the flexibility to customize their furnishings with decorative and practical add-ons to meet evolving style preferences.
Sales Channels
We offer our products through an omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to our customers online and in-store. Our distribution strategy allows us to reach customers through four distinct, brand-enhancing channels.
Showrooms. We market and sell our products through 174 retail locations at top tier malls, lifestyle centers, mobile concierge, kiosk, and street locations in 40 states in the U.S. We carefully select the best small-footprint retail locations in high-end malls and lifestyle centers for our showrooms. Compared to traditional retailers, our showrooms require significantly less square footage because of our need to have only a few in-store sample configurations for display and our ability to stack our inventory for immediate sale. The architecture and layout of these showrooms is designed to communicate our brand personality and key product features. Our goal is to educate first-time customers, creating an environment where people can touch, feel, read, and understand the technology behind our products. We are updating and remodeling many of our showrooms to reflect our new showroom concept, which emphasizes our unique product platform, and is the standard for new showrooms. Our
16

new showroom concept utilizes technology in more experiential ways to increase traffic and sales. Net sales completed through this channel accounted for 62.2% and 62.5% of total net sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, up from 61.1% and 60.2% of total net sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021.
Ecommerce. Through our ecommerce channel, we believe we are able to significantly enhance the consumer shopping experience for home furnishings, driving deeper brand engagement and loyalty, while also realizing more favorable margins than our showroom locations. We believe our robust technological capabilities position us well to benefit from the growing consumer preference to transact at home and via mobile devices. With furniture especially suited to ecommerce applications, our net sales completed through this channel accounted for 23.9% and 24.0% of total net sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, down from 28.8% and 29.5% of total net sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, respectively.
Other touchpoints. We augment our showrooms with other touchpoint strategies including online pop-up-shops, shop-in-shops, and barter inventory transactions. We utilize in store pop-up-shops to increase the number of locations where customers can experience and purchase our products, a low-cost alternative to drive brand awareness, in store sales, and ecommerce sales. These in-store pop-up-shops are staffed similarly to our showrooms with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our products and promote our brand. Unlike the in-store pop-up-shops which are typically 10-day shows, and pop-up locations, shop-in-shops are designed to be in permanent locations carrying the same digital technology of our showrooms and are also staffed with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our products. Shop-in-shops require less capital expenditure to open a productive space to drive brand awareness and touchpoint opportunities for demonstrating and selling our products. We hosted 8 in-store pop-up-shops in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 and did not host in-store pop-up-shops in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021.
We operated 3 and 5 online pop-up-shops on Costco.com for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, and 2 and 4 for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, respectively. We operated 22 Best Buy shop-in-shops for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, up from 4 in the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, respectively. Other sales which includes pop-up-shop sales, shop-in-shop sales, and barter inventory transactions accounted for 13.9% and 13.5% of our total sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 31, 2022, up from 10.1% and 10.3% of our total sales for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended August 1, 2021, respectively.

(1)For the calculation of basic and diluted net income per share, see Note 5 and Note 8 to our condensed financial statements.
(2)EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are “Non-GAAP Measures” that are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures of operating performance, as they eliminate expenses that are not reflective of the underlying business performance, facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Additionally, EBITDA is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, alongside GAAP measures such as gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), to measure and evaluate our operating performance and we believe these measures are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance.
These Non-GAAP Measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share as a measure of financial performance, cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. They should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Additionally, our Non-GAAP Measures are not intended to be measures of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as tax payments and debt service requirements and certain other cash costs that recur in the future. Our Non-GAAP Measures contain certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and cash costs to replace assets being depreciated and amortized. In addition, our Non-GAAP Measures exclude certain non-recurring and other charges.
19

In the future, we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in our Non-GAAP Measures. Our presentation of our Non-GAAP Measures should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and by using our Non-GAAP Measures as supplemental information. Our Non-GAAP Measures are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation.
(3)We define “EBITDA” as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA adjusted for the impact of certain non-cash and other items that we do not consider in our evaluation of ongoing operating performance. These items include management fees, equity-based compensation expense, write-offs of property and equipment, deferred rent, financing expenses and certain other charges and gains that we do not believe reflect our underlying business performance.

How We Assess the Performance of Our Business
We consider a variety of financial and operating measures, including the following, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions.
Net Sales
Net sales reflect our sale of merchandise plus shipping and handling revenue less returns and discounts. Sales made at Company operated showrooms, including shop-in-shops and pop-up shops, and via the web are recognized in accordance with the guidance set forth in ASC 606, which is typically at the point of transference of title when the goods are shipped.
Comparable Showroom Sales

Comparable showroom sales are calculated based on point of sale transactions from showrooms that were open at least fifty-two weeks as of the end of the reporting period. These sales will differ from sales on our income statement which are reported when goods are shipped and title has transferred to the customer. A showroom is not considered a part of the comparable showroom sales base if the square footage of the showroom changed or if the showroom was relocated. If a showroom was closed for any period of time during the measurement period, that showroom is excluded from comparable
20

showroom sales. We made an exception to this calculation in fiscal 2021 when all of our showrooms were temporarily closed due to government regulations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For fiscal years 2022 and 2021, 29 and 19 respectively were excluded from comparable showroom sales. Comparable showroom sales allow us to evaluate how our showroom base is performing by measuring the change in period-over-period point of sale transactions in showrooms that have been open for twelve months or more. While we review comparable showroom sales as one measure of our performance, this measure is less relevant to us than it may be to other retailers due to our fully integrated, omni-channel, go-to-market strategy. As a result, measures that analyze a single channel are less indicative of the performance of our business than they might be for other companies that operate their distribution channels as separate businesses. Further, certain of our competitors and other retailers calculate comparable showroom sales (or similar measures) differently than we do. As a result, the reporting of our comparable showroom sales may not be comparable to sales data made available by other companies.

New Customer

We define a customer as new when the customer has completed a transaction at Lovesac either at a showroom or internet channel only for the first time or if an existing customer completes another purchase at least 2 years since their last purchase.

Retail Sales Per Selling Square Foot

Retail sales per selling square foot is calculated by dividing the total point of sales transactions for all comparable showrooms, by the average selling square footage for the period. Selling square footage is retail space at our showrooms used to sell our products. Selling square footage excludes backrooms at showrooms used for storage, office space or similar matters.
Gross Profit
Gross profit is equal to our net sales less cost of merchandise sold. Gross profit as a percentage of our net sales is referred to as gross margin. In September 2018, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative began imposing a 10 percent ad valorem duty on a subset of products imported from China, inclusive of various furniture product categories. In September 2019, the Office of U.S. Trade Representative imposed an additional 15 percent ad valorem duty on products imported from China.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses include all operating costs, other than advertising and marketing expense, not included in cost of merchandise sold. These expenses include all payroll and payroll-related expenses; showroom expenses, including occupancy costs related to showroom operations, such as rent and common area maintenance; occupancy and expenses related to many of our operations at our headquarters, including utilities, equity-based compensation, financing related expense; public company expenses; and credit card transaction fees. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales is usually higher in lower volume quarters and lower in higher volume quarters because a significant portion of the costs are relatively fixed.
Our recent revenue growth has been accompanied by increased selling, general and administrative expenses. The most significant components of these increases are payroll and rent costs. We expect these expenses, as well as rent expense associated with the opening of new showrooms, to increase as we grow our business. We expect to leverage total selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales as sales volumes continue to grow. We expect to continue to invest in infrastructure to support the Company’s growth. These investments will lessen the impact of expense leveraging during the period of investment with the greater impact of expense leveraging happening after the period of investment. However, total selling, general and administrative expenses generally will leverage during the periods of investments with the most deleverage occurring in the first three quarters of the fiscal year, and the greatest leverage occurring in the fourth quarter.
Advertising and Marketing Expense
Advertising and marketing expense include digital, social, and traditional advertising and marketing initiatives that cover all of our business channels. Advertising and marketing expense is expected to continue to increase as a percentage to sales as we continue to invest in advertising and marketing which has accelerated sales growth.

Net sales
Net sales increased $46.1 million, or 45.0%, to $148.5 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $102.4 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. The increase in overall net sales was driven by growth across all channels. New showroom customers increased by 8.1% in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to 254.6% in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. The prior year's new showroom customers metric was impacted by the success of our Hero's campaign. We had 174 and 123 total showrooms including kiosks and mobile concierges as of July 31, 2022 and August 1, 2021, respectively. We opened 11 additional showrooms, 1 kiosk and did not remodel or close any showrooms in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022. In comparison, we opened 7 showrooms and did not close or remodel any showrooms in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. Showroom net sales increased $29.8 million, or 47.7%, to $92.4 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $62.6 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. This increase was due in large part to comparable net sales increase of $19.9 million, or 36.8%, to $74.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022, compared to $54.1 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021, related to higher point of sales transactions, strong promotional campaigns and the addition of 35 new showrooms, 14 kiosks and 2 mobile concierges. Point of sales transactions represent orders placed through our showrooms which does not always reflect the point at which control transfers to the customer, which occurs upon shipment being confirmed. See Note 12 to the condensed financial statements. We believe point of sales transactions is a more accurate way to measure showroom performance and how our showroom associates are incentivized. Retail sales per selling square foot increased $34, or 5.6%, to $644 in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $610 in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. Total number of units sold at point of transaction decreased by approximately 1.6% driven by higher mix of new showrooms sales. The increase in comparable sales and retail sales per selling square foot is the result of strong promotional campaigns. Internet net sales (sales made directly to customers through our ecommerce channel) increased $6.1 million, or 20.5%, to $35.5 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $29.5 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021 also driven by the same promotional campaigns.

Gross profit
Gross profit increased $21.9 million, or 37.1%, to $80.9 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 from $59.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. Gross margin decreased to 54.5% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 from 57.6% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. The decrease in gross margin percentage of 310 basis points was primarily driven by an increase of approximately 440 basis points in total distribution and related tariff expenses, partially offset by an improvement of 130 basis points in product margin. The increase in total distribution and related tariff expenses over prior year is principally related to the negative impact of 560 basis points increase in inbound transportation costs, partially offset by a decrease of 120 basis points due to volume leverage in warehouse and outbound transportation cost. The product margin rate improvement is due to continuing vendor negotiations to assist with the mitigation of tariffs and additional one-time US dollar denominated rebates related to currency impact as well as slightly lower promotional discounting.
Selling, general and administrative expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $13.5 million, or 38.1%, to $48.9 million in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $35.4 million in the prior year period.

Overhead expenses increased $2.7 million consisting of an increase of $2.3 million in infrastructure investments, an increase of $0.4 million in travel expenses, and an increase of $0.1 million in insurance expense related to the growth of the Company, partially offset by $0.1 million in lower equity-based compensation. Rent increased by $2.3 million with $1.0 million rent expense primarily coming from our net addition of 51 showrooms along with $1.3 million in higher percentage rent from the increase in Showroom sales. Selling related expenses increased $1.9 million principally due to credit card fees related to the increase in sales.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were 32.9% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to 34.5% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses of 160 basis points was primarily due to higher leverage within rent, infrastructure investments, equity-based compensation, insurance and selling related expenses, partially offset by deleverage in travel and employment costs. The deleverage in certain expenses relate to the continuous investments we are making into the business to support our ongoing growth.
Advertising and Marketing
Advertising and marketing expenses increased $6.1 million, or 46.4%, to $19.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to $13.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021.

The investment by quarter may vary greatly. Advertising and marketing expenses were 12.9% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended July 31, 2022 as compared to 12.7% of net sales in the thirteen weeks ended August 1, 2021. The slight increase in advertising and marketing as a percent of net sales is primarily due to a slight increase in media spends to support our second quarter net sales growth.
