FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may be forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “targets,” “projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “forecasts,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, but are not limited to statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, industry and business trends, stock compensation, business strategy, plans, market growth and our objectives for future operations.

The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are only predictions. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following: our ability to successfully maintain our desired merchandise assortment or manage our inventory effectively and attract a sufficient number of customers or sell sufficient quantities of our merchandise; the unpredictability and adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; our ability to anticipate, identify, measure, and respond quickly to new and rapidly changing fashion trends, customer preferences and demands, and other factors; our efforts to acquire or retain customers; our ability to maintain a high level of engagement with our customers and increase their spending with us; our ability to provide high-quality customer support; our ability to maintain a strong community around the Lulus brand with engaged customers and influencers; our ability to operate in the highly competitive retail apparel industry; our ability to successfully implement our growth strategy; our reliance on third parties to drive traffic to our platform; our use of social media, influencers, affiliate marketing, email, text messages, and direct mail; our exposure to international business uncertainties; our reliance on consumer discretionary spending; system security risk issues, including any real or perceived failure to protect confidential or personal information against security breaches and disruption of our internal operations or information technology systems; any disruption caused by continual updates, augmentation and additions to our technology systems; our reliance on email and other messaging services; risks associated with sourcing, manufacturing, and warehousing; any disruptions to our three distribution facilities; our reliance on independent third-party transportation providers for substantially all of our merchandise shipments and any disruptions or increased transportation costs; risks associated with infringement upon the trademarks, copyrights or other intellectual property rights of third parties, including the risk that we could acquire merchandise from our suppliers without the full right to sell it; and the other important factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the SEC. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are based upon information available to us as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and while we believe such information forms a reasonable basis for such statements, such information may be limited or incomplete, and our statements should not be read to indicate that we have conducted an exhaustive inquiry into, or review of, all potentially available relevant information. These statements are inherently uncertain and investors are cautioned not to unduly rely upon these statements.

You should read this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the documents that we reference in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and have filed as exhibits to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the understanding that our actual future results, levels of activity, performance and achievements may be materially different from what we expect. We qualify all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Except as required by applicable law, we do not plan to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, whether as a result of any new information, future events or otherwise.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

On August 28, 2017, we executed a reorganization of our corporate structure. Our original parent company was called Lulu’s Holdings, LLC. This entity was converted to Lulu’s Holdings, L.P. (the “LP”). We formed two new subsidiaries, Lulu’s Fashion Lounge Holdings, Inc. and Lulu’s Fashion Lounge Parent, LLC, to sit between the LP and our operating company. Our operating company, previously known as Lulu’s Fashion Lounge, Inc., was converted from a California corporation to a Delaware limited liability company, Lulu’s Fashion Lounge, LLC, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Lulu’s Fashion Lounge Holdings, Inc. In connection with our initial public offering, the LP was liquidated. Unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to the terms “Lulus,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company” refer to Lulu’s Fashion Lounge Holdings, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Our fiscal year is a “52-53 week” year ending on the Sunday closest in proximity to December 31, such that each quarterly period will be 13 weeks in length, except during a 53 week year when the fourth quarter will be 14 weeks. References herein to “fiscal 2022” and/or “2022” relate to the year ending January 1, 2023 and “fiscal 2021” and/or “2021” relate to the year ended January 2, 2022.

Throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we provide a number of key performance indicators used by management and typically used by our competitors in our industry. These and other key performance indicators are discussed in more detail in the section titled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Key Operating and Financial Metrics.” In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we also reference Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) financial measure. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA. Net income (loss) is the most directly comparable financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA required by, or presented in accordance, with GAAP.

1.Description of Business, Organization and Liquidity

Organization and Business

Pursuant to a reorganization, Lulu’s Fashion Lounge Holdings, Inc., a Delaware Corporation (“Lulus”, or the “Company”), was formed on August 25, 2017 as a holding company and its primary asset is an indirect membership interest in Lulu’s Fashion Lounge, LLC (“LFL”). Prior to the sale of the Company’s Series A convertible preferred stock, the Company was wholly-owned by Lulu’s Holdings, L.P. (the “LP”). Prior to the Company’s initial public offering, the Company was majority-owned by the LP.

LFL was founded in 1996, starting as a vintage boutique in Chico, CA that began selling online in 2005 and transitioned to a purely online business in 2008. The LP was formed in 2014 as a holding company and purchased 100% of LFL’s outstanding common stock in 2014. The Company, through LFL, is an online retailer of women’s clothing, shoes and accessories based in Chico, CA.

Initial Public Offering

On November 10, 2021, the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 relating to its initial public offering (“IPO”) was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the shares of its common stock began trading on the Nasdaq Global Market on November 11, 2021. The IPO closed on November 15, 2021, pursuant to which the Company issued and sold 5,750,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $16.00 per share. On November 15, 2021, the Company received net proceeds of approximately $82.0 million from the IPO, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of approximately $6.1 million and other issuance costs of approximately $3.9 million. Immediately prior to the completion of the IPO, all shares of the Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding were converted into 15,000,000 shares of common stock. Additionally, 215,702 shares of common stock were issued to the LP immediately prior to the completion of the IPO. All shares of the Series B Preferred Stock and the Series B-1 Preferred Stock were redeemed and extinguished for a total payment of approximately $17.9 million on November 15, 2021.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a material impact on the global fashion apparel, accessories and footwear industry as a significant portion of in-person social, professional, and formal events were postponed or cancelled in 2020. The Company’s business rebounded from the initial impact of the pandemic on consumer behavior. During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the Company’s net revenue grew by 62%, compared to the same period of the prior year.

The Company expects the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related macro-economic trends, such as inflation, supply chain pressures and the emergence of new variants of COVID-19, to have a continued impact on its business, results of operations, and financial condition during fiscal 2022. The Company continues to take actions to adjust to the changing COVID-19 business environment and related inflationary and supply chain pressures, including placing orders earlier than pre-pandemic times, leveraging our “test, learn and reorder” approach to test small order quantities and then graduate successful styles to its re-order algorithms and diversifying our supply chain network to mitigate rising costs and service delays. Although the Company continues to face a challenging environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has successfully implemented the aforementioned actions to help mitigate the impact on its business.

2.Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation and Fiscal Year

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(unaudited)

The condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, after elimination of all intercompany balances and transactions. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the Unites States of America (“GAAP”) and the requirements of the SEC for interim reporting. As permitted under these rules, certain information and disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual consolidated financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of April 3, 2022 and its results of operations and cash flows for the quarters ended April 3, 2022 and April 4, 2021. The results of operations for the quarter ended April 3, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal year ending January 1, 2023 or for any other future annual or interim period.

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 2, 2022 was derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

Significant Accounting Policies

The significant accounting policies used in preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with those discussed in Note 2 to the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 2, 2022, except as noted below and within the "Adopted and Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements" section.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. The significant estimates and assumptions made by management relate to sales return reserves and related asset for recovery, lease right-of-use assets and related lease liabilities, and income tax valuation allowance. Management evaluates its estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis using historical experience and other factors, including the current economic environment, which management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. The Company adjusts such estimates and assumptions when facts and circumstances dictate. Changes in those estimates resulting from continuing changes in the economic environment will be reflected in the consolidated financial statements in future periods. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results could materially differ from those estimates and assumptions.

Concentration of Credit Risks

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. At times, such amounts may exceed federally insured limits. The Company reduces credit risk by depositing its cash with major credit-worthy financial institutions within the United States. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses on its cash deposits. As of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022, a single wholesale customer represented 15% and 24% respectively, of the Company’s accounts receivable balance. No customer accounted for greater than 10% of the Company’s net revenue during the quarters ended April 3, 2022 and April 4, 2021.

Leases

Prior to the adoption of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 842 on January 3, 2022

Leases were reviewed for classification as operating or capital leases. For operating leases, the Company recognized rent on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. The Company recorded the difference between cash payments and rent expense recognized as a deferred rent liability included in other accrued and current liabilities and other noncurrent liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Incentives granted under the Company’s facility leases, including allowances to fund leasehold improvements, were deferred and are recognized as adjustments to rental expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. The Company changed its method of accounting for leases as of January 3, 2022 due to the adoption of FASB ASC 842, Leases (“ASC 842”).

Subsequent to the adoption of ASC 842 on January 3, 2022

Contracts that have been determined to convey the right to use an identified asset are evaluated for classification as an operating or finance lease. For the Company’s operating and finance leases, the Company records a lease liability based on the present value of the lease payments at lease inception. The present value of lease payments is determined by using the interest rate implicit in the lease, if that rate is readily determinable; otherwise, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate (“IBR”). The determination of the IBR requires judgment and is primarily based on publicly-available information for companies within similar industries and with similar credit profiles. We adjust the rate for the impact of collateralization, the lease term and other specific terms included in each lease arrangement. The IBR is determined at the lease commencement and is subsequently reassessed upon a modification to the lease arrangement. The right-of-use asset is recorded based on the corresponding lease liability at lease inception, adjusted for payments made to the lessor at or before the commencement date, initial direct costs incurred and any tenant incentives allowed for under the lease. The Company does not include optional renewal terms or early termination provisions unless the Company is reasonably certain such options would be exercised at the inception of the lease. Lease right-of-use assets, current portion of lease liabilities, and lease liabilities, net of current portion are included on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Fixed lease expense for operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis, unless the right-of-use assets have been impaired, over the reasonably assured lease term based on the total lease payments and is included in operating expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Fixed and variable lease expense on operating leases is recognized within operating expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Finance lease expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis.  Fixed and variable expenses are captured within interest expense and depreciation expense, which has components within general and administrative

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(unaudited)

expenses and cost of revenue.  The Company’s non-lease components are primarily related to maintenance, insurance and taxes, which varies based on future outcomes and is thus recognized in lease expense when incurred.

Revenue Recognition

The Company generates revenue primarily from the sale of merchandise products directly to end customers. The sale of products is a distinct performance obligation, and revenue is recognized at a point in time when control of the promised product is transferred to customers, which the Company determined occurs upon shipment based on its evaluation of the related shipping terms. Revenue is recognized in an amount that reflects the transaction price consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those products. The Company’s payment terms are typically at the point of sale for merchandise product sales.

The Company elected to exclude from revenue taxes assessed by governmental authorities, including value-added and other sales-related taxes, that are imposed on and concurrent with revenue-producing activities. The Company has elected to apply the practical expedient, relative to e-commerce sales, which allows an entity to account for shipping and handling as fulfillment activities, and not a separate performance obligation. Accordingly, the Company recognizes revenue for only one performance obligation, the sale of the product, at shipping point (when the customer gains control). Shipping and handling costs associated with outbound freight are accounted for as fulfillment costs and are included in cost of goods sold. The Company has elected to apply the practical expedient to expense costs as incurred for incremental costs to obtain a contract when the amortization period would have been one year or less.

Revenue from merchandise product sales is reported net of sales returns, which includes an estimate of future returns based on historical return rates, with a corresponding reduction to cost of sales. There is judgment in utilizing historical trends for estimating future returns. The Company’s refund liability for sales returns is included in the returns reserve on its condensed consolidated balance sheets and represents the expected value of the refund that will be due to the Company’s customers. The Company also has a corresponding asset for recovery that represents the expected net realizable value of the merchandise inventory to be returned.

The Company sells stored-value gift cards to customers and offers merchandise credit stored-value cards for certain returns. Such stored-value cards do not have an expiration date. The Company recognizes revenue from stored-value cards when the card is redeemed by the customer. The Company has determined that sufficient evidence exists to support an estimate for stored-value card breakage. Subject to requirements to remit balances to governmental agencies, breakage is recognized as revenue in proportion to the pattern of rights exercised by the customer, which is substantially within thirty-six months from the date of issuance. The amount of breakage recognized in revenue during the quarters ended April 3, 2022 and April 4, 2021 was not in either case material.

The Company has two types of contractual liabilities: (i) cash collections from its customers prior to delivery of products purchased (“deferred revenue”), which are initially recorded within accrued expenses and recognized as revenue when the products are shipped, (ii) unredeemed gift cards and online store credits, which are initially recorded as a stored-value card liability and are recognized as revenue in the period they are redeemed.

The Company calculates basic and diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders in conformity with the two-class method required for participating securities as the application of the if converted method is not more dilutive. The two-class method requires income available to common stockholders for the period to be allocated between common stock and participating securities based upon their respective rights to receive dividends as if all income for the period had been distributed.

The Company considered its redeemable preferred stock and convertible preferred stock outstanding during fiscal 2021 to be participating securities. In accordance with the two-class method, net income is adjusted for earnings allocated to these participating securities and the related number of outstanding shares of the participating securities, which include contractual participation rights in undistributed earnings, have been excluded from the computation of basic and diluted net income per share attributable to common stockholders. The redeemable preferred stock and convertible preferred stock contractually entitle the holders of such shares to participate in dividends but do not contractually require the holders of such shares to participate in the Company’s losses. As such, where applicable, net losses were not allocated to these securities.

During the quarters ended April 4, 2022 and April 3, 2021, basic net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders is computed using net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders represents net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including the effects of any dilutive securities outstanding. Basic and diluted net income (loss) per common share attributable to common stockholders are the same for the quarter ended April 4, 2021 since the inclusion of all potential shares of common stock outstanding would have been anti-dilutive.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

The Company is an emerging growth company, as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can delay adopting new or revised accounting standards issued subsequent to the enactment of the JOBS Act until such time as those standards apply to private companies. The Company has elected to use this extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until the earlier of the date that it (i) is no longer an emerging growth company or (ii) affirmatively and irrevocably opts out of the extended transition period provided in the JOBS Act. As a result, these consolidated financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with the new or revised accounting pronouncements as of public company effective dates.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as amended, which requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and lease liability on their condensed consolidated balance sheets for all leases with a term longer than twelve months. Under the new lease standard, the Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Lease liabilities and their corresponding right-of-use assets are recorded based on the present value of lease payments over the expected lease term. In determining the present value of lease payments, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the lease commencement date if the rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable. The new standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. This classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less may be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases today and are not recorded on the Company’s

balance sheet. The Company adopted the new standard as of January 3, 2022 on a modified retrospective basis under the alternative transition method. The Company elected to take the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components as part of the adoption. Lease agreements entered into after the adoption of Topic 842 that include lease and non-lease components are accounted for as a single lease component. Beginning on January 3, 2022, the Company’s operating leases, excluding those with terms less than 12 months, were discounted and recorded as assets and liabilities on the Company’s balance sheet. As of the effective date of adoption, the Company recognized lease right-of-use assets of $28.0 million, which included $0.4 million previously recorded as prepaid rent net of $1.0 million previously recorded as deferred rent, $2.2 million of current lease liabilities and $26.4 million in lease liabilities, net of current portion, related to its operating leases.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. This standard is effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this guidance on January 3, 2022, and it did not have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, as amended, which amends guidance on reporting credit losses for assets held at amortized cost basis and available-for-sale debt securities from an incurred loss methodology to an expected loss methodology. For assets held at amortized cost basis, the guidance eliminates the probable initial recognition threshold and instead requires an entity to reflect its current estimate of all expected credit losses. The allowance for credit losses is a valuation account that is deducted from the amortized cost basis of the assets to present the net amount expected to be collected. For available-for-sale debt securities, credit losses are recorded through an allowance for credit losses, rather than a write-down, limited to the amount by which fair value is below amortized cost. Additional disclosures about significant estimates and credit quality are also required. The guidance is effective for the Company for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently assessing the potential impact of adopting ASU 2016-13 on its condensed consolidated financial statements and does not expect the adoption to have a material impact.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Accounting, which, as amended, provides optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or reorganizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. This standard can be adopted immediately, however, the guidance will only be available until December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of adopting this guidance on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

3.Fair Value Measurements

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts payable, accrued expenses, revolving line of credit and long-term debt. As of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022, the carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to their short-term maturities. The fair value of the Company’s New Revolving Facility that provides for borrowings up to $50.0 million (see Note 5, Debt) approximates its carrying value as the stated interest rates reset daily at the daily secured overnight financing rate (“SOFR”) plus an applicable margin and, as such, approximate market rates currently available to the Company. The Company does not have any financial instruments that were determined to be Level 3.

New Revolving Facility

During November 2021, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement with Bank of America (the “Credit Agreement”) to provide the New Revolving Facility that provides for borrowings up to $50.0 million. During the term of the Credit Agreement, the Company can increase the aggregate amount of the New Revolving Facility up to an additional $25.0 million (for maximum aggregate lender commitments of up to $75.0 million), subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions under the Credit Agreement, including obtaining the consent of the administrative agent and an increased commitment from existing or new lenders. In addition, the Credit Agreement may be used to issue letters of credit up to $7.5 million (“Letter of Credit”). During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the Company repaid $10.0 million of the outstanding balance. The New Revolving Facility matures on November 15, 2024, while the Letter of Credit matures on November 8, 2024. As of April 3, 2022, the Company had $15.0 million outstanding and $35.0 million available for borrowing under the New Revolving Facility and $7.25 million available to issue letters of credit.

(unaudited)

All borrowings under the Credit Agreement accrue interest at a rate equal to, at the Company’s option, either (x) the term daily SOFR, plus the applicable SOFR adjustment plus a margin of 1.75% per annum or (y) the base rate plus a margin of 0.75% (with the base rate being the highest of the federal funds rate plus 0.50%, the prime rate and term SOFR for a period of one month plus 1.00%). Additionally, a commitment fee of 37.5 basis points will be assessed on unused commitments under the New Revolving Facility, taking into account the sum of outstanding borrowings and letter of credit obligations. As of April 3, 2022, the interest rate for the New Revolving Facility was 1.92% and during the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the effective interest rate for the New Revolving Facility was 2.6%.

Amounts borrowed under the Credit Agreement are collateralized by all assets of the Company and contains various financial and non-financial covenants for reporting, protecting and obtaining adequate insurance coverage for assets collateralized and for coverage of business operations, and complying with requirements, including the payment of all necessary taxes and fees for all federal, state and local government entities. Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default, including the noncompliance with the above covenants, the lender may increase the interest rate per annum by 2.0% above the rate that would be otherwise applicable. As of April 3, 2022, management has determined that the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants.

Term Loan

In August 2017, the Company entered into a term loan with a principal amount of $135.0 million (the “Term Loan”) and a revolving credit facility of $10.0 million (the “Revolving Facility”) with certain financial institutions for which Credit Suisse acted as an administrative agent (the “Credit Facility”).

During April 2021, the Company entered into the sixth amendment to the Credit Facility (“Sixth Amendment”), which: 1) Amended the minimum liquidity covenant from $2.5 million to $10.0 million, 2) Extended the due date for the 2020 audited consolidated financial statements to September 30, 2021, and 3) Upon receipt of proceeds from an IPO, Special Purpose Acquisition Company transaction, or other liquidity transaction that involves the equity of Lulus or its affiliates, the Company was required to pay off the outstanding obligations under the Credit Facility before any proceeds were utilized by the Company. There was no gain or loss arising from the Sixth Amendment as it was considered to be a debt modification.

During November 2021, the Company utilized the proceeds from the IPO and the New Revolving Facility to repay the $105.8 million of outstanding principal and $1.4 million of accrued interest related to the Term Loan. The Credit Facility was terminated on November 15, 2021 and no prepayment penalties were incurred.

The effective interest rate on the Term Loan was 12.8% for the quarter ended April 4, 2021.

Revolving Facility

Outstanding amounts under the Revolving Facility bore interest at variable rates with a minimum of 7.00%. The Revolving Facility was terminated on November 15, 2021. The effective interest rate for the Revolving Facility was 9.6% for the quarter ended April 4, 2021.

Debt Discounts and Issuance Costs

Debt discounts and issuance costs are deferred and amortized over the life of the related loan using the effective interest method. The associated expense is included in interest expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Debt discounts and issuance costs are presented as a reduction of long-term debt with the exception of debt issuance costs related to the New Revolving Facility, which are included in other non-current assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022, unamortized debt issuance costs recorded within other non-current assets were $0.4 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

6.Leases

Subsequent to the adoption of ASC 842

On January 3, 2022, the Company adopted ASC 842 using the alternative transition method and applied the standard only to leases that existed at that date. Under the alternative transition method, the Company did need to restate the comparative periods in transition and will continue to present financial information and disclosures for periods before January 3, 2022 in accordance with FASB ASC 840, Leases. The Company elected the practical expedient package, which among other practical expedients, includes the option to retain the historical classification of leases entered into prior to January 3, 2022 and allows entities to recognize lease payments on a straight-line basis over the lease term for leases with a term of 12 months or less. The Company also elected the practical expedient to combine lease and non-lease components.

The Company is a lessee under various lease agreements. The determination of whether an arrangement contains a lease and the lease classification is made at lease commencement (date upon which the Company takes possession of the asset). At lease commencement, the Company also measures and recognizes a right-of-use asset, representing the Company’s right to use the underlying asset, and a lease liability, representing the Company’s obligation to make lease payments under the terms of the arrangement. The lease term is defined as the noncancelable portion of the lease term plus any periods covered by an option to extend the lease if it is reasonably certain that the option will be exercised. For the purposes of recognizing right-of-use assets and lease liabilities associated with the Company’s leases, the Company has elected the practical expedient of not recognizing a right-of-use asset or lease liability for short-term leases, which are leases with a term of twelve months or less. The Company has one finance lease and multiple operating leases that are combined and included in the lease right-of-use assets, lease liabilities, current, and lease liabilities, noncurrent on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The Company primarily leases its distribution facilities and corporate offices under operating lease agreements expiring on various dates through December 2031, most of which contain options to extend. As of January 3, 2022, the Company had various operating leases with a lease term of less than 12 months for its office spaces. In addition to payment of base rent, the Company is also required to pay property taxes, insurance, and common area maintenance expenses. The Company records lease expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. As of April 3, 2022, the Company had a remaining obligation for the base rent related to the short-term leases in the amount of $0.5 million.

The Company also leases equipment under one finance lease agreement commencing in 2022 that expires in March 2026.

As of April 3, 2022, the future minimum lease payments for the Company’s operating and finance leases for each of the fiscal years were as follows (in thousands):

7.Commitments and Contingencies

Litigation and Other

From time to time, the Company may be a party to litigation and subject to claims incurred in the ordinary course of business, including personal injury and indemnification claims, labor and employment claims, threatened claims, breach of contract claims, and other matters. The Company accrues a liability when management believes information available prior to the issuance of the condensed consolidated financial statements indicates it is probable a loss has been incurred as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company adjusts its accruals to reflect the impact of negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel, and other information and events pertaining to a particular case. Legal costs are expensed as incurred. Although the results of litigation and claims are inherently unpredictable, management concluded that it was not probable that it had incurred a material loss during the periods presented related to such loss contingencies. Therefore, the Company has not recorded a reserve for any contingencies.

During the normal course of business, the Company may be a party to claims that are not covered by insurance. While the ultimate liability, if any, arising from these claims cannot be predicted with certainty, management does not believe that the resolution of any such claims would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. As of April 3, 2022, the Company was not aware of any currently pending legal matters or claims, individually or in the aggregate, that are expected to have a material adverse impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Indemnification

The Company also maintains director and officer insurance, which may cover certain liabilities arising from its obligation to indemnify the Company’s directors. To date, the Company has not incurred any material costs and has not accrued any liabilities in the condensed consolidated financial statements as a result of these provisions.

8.Preferred Stock

Pursuant to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the Company is authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock having a par value of $0.001 per share. The Company’s board of directors has the authority to issue preferred stock and to determine the rights, preferences, privileges, and restrictions, including voting rights, of those shares. As of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022, no shares of preferred stock were issued and outstanding. In connection with the Company’s IPO, all convertible preferred stock was converted to the Company’s common stock.

Series B-1 Redeemable Preferred Stock Issuance

During March 2021, the Company issued and sold 1,450,000 shares of Series B-1 Preferred Stock at $1.00 per share to current executives of the Company. In connection with the offering, the Company filed an amended and restated certificate of incorporation which authorized the issuance of up to 2,500,000 shares of Series B-1 preferred stock with the same rights, preferences and privileges of the Series B redeemable preferred stock and increased the authorized shares of common stock to 24,000,000.

The Company received gross cash proceeds of $1.5 million and incurred nominal issuance costs associated with the Series B-1 Preferred Stock issuance. For accounting purposes, the Company determined the fair value of the Series B-1 Preferred Stock to be $2.02 per share at issuance. The Series B-1 Preferred Stock shares were recorded at fair value and the excess of the fair value over the consideration paid was recorded as equity-based compensation of $1.5 million.

9.Common Stock

The Company has authorized the issuance of 250,000,000 shares of common stock with a $0.001 par value as of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022. As of April 3, 2022 and January 2, 2022, there were 38,830,130 and 38,421,124 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. Holders of common stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters to be voted upon by the stockholders of the Company. Subject to the preferences that may be applicable to any outstanding share of preferred stock, the holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends, if any, as may be declared by the board of directors. No dividends have been declared to date. As of April 3, 2022, the Company has reserved 322,793 shares of common stock for issuance upon the exercise of stock options, 208,914 shares of common stock to settle the CEO Special Compensation Awards in March 2023, and 3,942,167 shares of common stock for future issuance under the equity plans described in Note 10, Equity-Based Compensation.

10.Equity-Based Compensation

Omnibus Equity Plan and Employee Stock Purchase Plan

In connection with the closing of the IPO, the Company adopted the Omnibus Equity Plan (the “Omnibus Equity Plan”) and the 2021 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”).

Under the Omnibus Equity Plan, incentive awards may be granted to employees, directors, and consultants of the Company. The Company initially reserved 3,719,000 shares of common stock for future issuance under the Omnibus Equity Plan, including any shares subject to awards under the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Equity Plan”) that are forfeited or lapse unexercised. The number of shares reserved for issuance under the Omnibus Equity Plan will automatically increase on the first day of each fiscal year, starting in 2022 and continuing through 2031, by a number of shares equal to (a) 4% of the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding on the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year or (b) such smaller number of shares as determined by the Company’s board of directors.  

On April 1, 2022, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Form S-8”) with the SEC for the purpose of registering an aggregate of 5,921,056 shares of the Company’s common stock, consisting of 4,736,845 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the Omnibus Equity Plan and 1,184,211 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the ESPP.  Under the Omnibus Equity Plan, the Company had 2,757,956 shares available for grant as of April 3, 2022. The compensation committee of the Company’s board of directors (the “compensation committee”) administers the Omnibus Equity Plan and determines to whom awards will be granted, the exercise price of any options, the rates at which awards vest and the other terms and conditions of the awards granted under the Omnibus Equity Plan. The compensation committee may or may not issue the full number of shares that are reserved for issuance.

Under the ESPP, certain Company employees may purchase shares of the Company’s common stock at a 15% discount in future offerings. The Company initially reserved 743,803 shares of common stock for future issuance under the ESPP, which was subsequently increased to 1,184,211 per the Form S-8. The number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the ESPP will automatically increase on the first day of each fiscal year beginning in 2022 and ending in 2031, by a number of shares equal to (a) 1% of the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding on the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year or (b) such smaller number of shares as determined by the Company’s board of directors. No offerings have commenced under the ESPP, nor have any shares been issued under it.

2021 Equity Plan

In April 2021, the Company’s board of directors adopted the 2021 Equity Plan. The 2021 Equity Plan provides for the issuance of incentive stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units and other stock-based and cash-based awards to the Company’s employees, directors, and consultants. The maximum aggregate number of shares reserved for issuance under the 2021 Equity Plan was 925,000 shares. The options outstanding under the 2021 Equity Plan expire ten years from the date of grant. The Company issues new common shares to satisfy stock option exercises. In connection with the closing of the IPO, no further awards will be granted under the 2021 Equity Plan.

In April 2021, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement (“Employment Agreement”) with the CEO and granted stock options to purchase 322,793 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $11.35 per share, which vest based on service and performance conditions. 275,133 of these stock options have only service vesting conditions, and 47,660 of these stock options have both service and performance vesting conditions. In addition, a portion of these stock options were subject to accelerated vesting conditions upon the occurrence of certain future events, which were satisfied upon the closing of the IPO.

Under the Employment Agreement and subject to ongoing employment, and in light of the closing of the IPO, the CEO will receive two bonuses which will be settled in fully-vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to $3.0 million each ($6.0 million in aggregate) on March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2023. The Company initially concluded that the two bonuses are subject to the guidance within ASC 718 and, were liability-classified upon issuance. Upon the completion of the IPO, the two bonuses became equity-classified as they no longer met the criteria for liability classification. The Company records the equity-based compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service periods through March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2023. During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the Company recognized equity-based compensation related to the two bonuses of $1.1 million. During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the Company issued 208,914 fully-vested shares upon satisfaction of the service performed through March 31, 2022. Upon completion of the service by the CEO, the Company will issue 208,914 fully-vested shares on March 31, 2023.

There were no options granted during the quarters ended April 3, 2022 or April 4, 2021.

During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, equity-based compensation expense of $0.3 million, was recorded to general and administrative expense related to the stock options, respectively. As of April 3, 2022, total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested stock options was $2.0 million, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average remaining service period of 2.0 years.

Class P Units

384,522 of the outstanding Class P units included both a service condition and a performance condition, while the remainder of the Class P units only included a service condition. The performance-based vesting condition was satisfied upon completion of the IPO. Equity-based compensation expense of $0.4 million related to the Class P units was recorded to general and administrative expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss) for the quarter ended April 4, 2021.

During October 2021, the LP modified the vesting schedule related to 763,178 outstanding Class P units for two senior executives to accelerate vesting if the two senior executives perform service after the completion of the IPO over the subsequent 12-month period. The Company concluded that the amendment to the Class P units was a modification under ASC 718 and there was no incremental equity-based compensation expense to recognize. With the completion of the Company’s IPO, the remaining unrecognized expense associated with the restricted stock, received in exchange at the IPO for the modified Class P units, is being recognized over the subsequent 12-month period through November 2022.

Class P Distributions

With the completion of the IPO, the performance condition for the distributions related to the Class P units was met and the Company recognized a cumulative catch-up to equity-based compensation. Such amounts payable to the former Class P unit holders (“FCPUs”) were included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities as of January 2, 2022. The  distributions payable to the FCPUs were determined to be settled in the quarter ended April 3, 2022 as a result of agreements reached with the FCPUs, and were recorded as an increase to additional paid-in capital as such amounts were related to the shares of common stock received by the FCPUs as part of the liquidation of the LP in November 2021. The agreements provide for payments to the FCPUs of up to $0.6 million (if future sales of shares of common stock held by the FCPUs during 2022 occur at a price less than the threshold stated in the agreements), which were recorded as equity-based compensation expense in the quarter ended April 3, 2022 and in accrued expenses and other current liabilities as of April 3, 2022.

Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units

Immediately before the completion of the IPO, the LP was liquidated and the Class P unit holders of the LP received shares of the Company’s common stock in exchange for their units of the LP. The Class P unit holders received 1,964,103 shares of common stock, comprised of 1,536,304 shares of vested common stock and 427,799 shares of unvested restricted stock. Any such shares of restricted stock received in respect of unvested Class P units of the LP are subject to vesting and a risk of forfeiture to the same extent as the corresponding Class P units. The Company recorded equity-based compensation expense of $0.8 million during the quarter ended April 3, 2022 related to the exchanged restricted stock. As of April 3, 2022, the unrecognized equity-based compensation expense for all restricted stock is $3.4 million and will be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.44 years.

During the quarter ended April 3, 2022, the Company granted 1,897,644 RSUs to certain executives and employees which vest over a two- or three- year service period, and 81,245 RSUs to certain directors which vest over a six-month to three-year service period. The Company recognized equity-based compensation expense of $2.1 million during the quarter ended April 3, 2022 related to the RSUs.

11.Income Taxes

Beginning in fiscal 2022, the Company’s quarterly tax provision is calculated using an estimated annual effective tax rate (“ETR”), adjusted for discrete items arising in the period. In each quarter, this estimated annual ETR is updated, and a year-to-date calculation of the provision is made. Prior to fiscal 2022, the Company’s quarterly tax provision was calculated using a discrete approach, as allowed by FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes. The discrete method was previously applied when
