THE MIDDLEBY CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 2, 2022
(Unaudited)
1)Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
a)Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by The Middleby Corporation (the "company" or “Middleby”), pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The financial statements are unaudited and certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information not misleading. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes contained in the company's 2021 Form 10-K. The company’s interim results are not necessarily indicative of future full year results for the fiscal year 2022. 
In the opinion of management, the financial statements contain all adjustments, which are normal and recurring in nature, necessary to present fairly the financial position of the company as of April 2, 2022 and January 1, 2022, the results of operations for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, cash flows for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021 and statement of stockholders' equity for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021.
Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires the company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. Significant estimates and assumptions are used for, but are not limited to, allowances for doubtful accounts, reserves for excess and obsolete inventories, long-lived and intangible assets, warranty reserves, insurance reserves, income tax reserves, non-cash share-based compensation and post-retirement obligations. Actual results could differ from the company's estimates.
b)Non-Cash Share-Based Compensation
The company estimates the fair value of market-based stock awards and stock options at the time of grant and recognizes compensation cost over the vesting period of the awards and options. Non-cash share-based compensation expense was $13.7 million and $7.6 million for the three months period ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, respectively.
c)Income Taxes
A tax provision of $26.6 million, at an effective rate of 23.7%, was recorded during the three months period ended April 2, 2022, as compared to a $28.9 million tax provision at a 24.5% effective rate in the prior year period. The effective tax rate for the three months period ended April 2, 2022 is lower than the comparable year rate primarily due to excess tax benefits from share-based compensation award vesting.


5


d)Fair Value Measures 
Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 820 "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures" defines fair value as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value into the following levels:
Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs based the company's own assumptions.
The company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value and are categorized using the fair value hierarchy are as follows (in thousands):

Financial Liabilities:
    Interest rate swaps$ $21,635 $ $21,635 
    Contingent consideration$ $ $34,983 $34,983 
The contingent consideration as of April 2, 2022 and January 1, 2022, relates to the earnout provisions recorded in conjunction with various purchase agreements. The earnout provisions associated with these acquisitions are based upon performance measurements related to sales and earnings, as defined in the respective purchase agreement. On a quarterly basis, the company assesses the projected results for each acquired business in comparison to the earnout targets and adjusts the liability accordingly.
e)    Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows
Cash paid for interest was $18.1 million and $16.6 million for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, respectively. Cash payments totaling $7.9 million and $12.8 million were made for income taxes for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, respectively.
6


f)    Earnings Per Share
“Basic earnings per share” is calculated based upon the weighted average number of common shares actually outstanding, and “diluted earnings per share” is calculated based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and other dilutive securities.
The company’s potentially dilutive securities consist of shares issuable on vesting of restricted stock grants computed using the treasury method and amounted to 5,653 and 8,269 for the three months ended April 2, 2022, and April 3, 2021, respectively. For the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, the average market price of the company's common stock exceeded the exercise price of the Convertible Notes (as defined below) resulting in 1,688,402 and 744,334 diluted common stock equivalents to be included in the diluted net earnings per share, respectively. There have been no conversions to date. See Note 12, Financing Arrangements for further details on the Convertible Notes. There were no anti-dilutive restricted stock grants excluded from common stock equivalents in any period presented.
7


2)    Acquisitions and Purchase Accounting
The company accounts for all business combinations using the acquisition method to record a new cost basis for the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The difference between the purchase price and the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed has been recorded as goodwill in the financial statements. The company recognizes identifiable intangible assets, primarily trade names and customer relationships, at their fair value using a discounted cash flow model. The significant assumptions used to estimate the value of the intangible assets include revenue growth rates, projected profit margins, discount rates, royalty rates, and customer attrition rates. These significant assumptions are forward-looking and could be affected by future economic and market conditions. The results of operations are reflected in the consolidated financial statements of the company from the dates of acquisition.

The company completed no material acquisitions during the three months ended April 2, 2022.
Novy Invest NV
On July 12, 2021, the company completed its acquisition of all of the capital stock of Novy Invest NV ("Novy"), a leading manufacturer of premium residential ventilation hoods and cook tops located in Belgium, for a purchase price of approximately $250.9 million, net of cash acquired.
The following estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed are provisional and are based on the information that was available as of the acquisition date to estimate the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed (in thousands):

Other non-current liabilities(1,930)(193)(2,123)
Net assets acquired and liabilities assumed$267,008 $ $267,008 
The long-term deferred tax liability amounted to $39.4 million. The deferred tax liability is comprised of $37.4 million related to the difference between the book and tax basis of identifiable intangible assets and $2.0 million related to the difference between the book and tax basis on identifiable tangible asset and liability accounts.

The goodwill and $105.7 million of other intangibles associated with the trade names are subject to the non-amortization provisions of ASC 350. Other intangibles also include $40.0 million allocated to customer relationships, $2.7 million allocated to developed technology and $1.1 million allocated to backlog, which are being amortized over periods of 7 years, 7 years, and 3 months, respectively. Goodwill of $125.3 million and other intangibles of $149.5 million from this acquisition are allocated to the Residential Kitchen Equipment Group for segment reporting purposes. Goodwill and other intangibles are not expected to be deductible for tax purposes.
The company believes that information gathered to date provides a reasonable basis for estimating the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, but the company is waiting for additional information necessary to finalize those fair values for all acquisitions completed during 2021. The intangible assets are pending external valuation and are preliminarily valued using historical information from the Residential Kitchen Equipment Group and qualitative assessment of the business at acquisition date. Specifically, the company estimated the fair values of the intangible assets based on the percentage of purchase price assigned to similar intangible assets in previous acquisitions. Thus, the provisional measurements of fair values set forth above are subject to change. The company expects to complete the purchase price allocation as soon as practicable but no later than one year from the acquisition date.

Kamado Joe and Masterbuilt
On December 27, 2021, the company completed its acquisition of Masterbuilt Holdings, LLC, including its residential outdoor brands ("Kamado Joe and Masterbuilt"), a leader in outdoor residential cooking located in the Atlanta, Georgia area, for a purchase price of approximately $400.8 million, net of cash acquired. The purchase price was comprised of $403.6 million in cash and 12,921 shares of Middleby common stock valued at $2.5 million. The purchase price is subject to adjustment as provided in the purchase agreement. The company expects to finalize this adjustment in the second quarter of 2022.
The following estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed are provisional and are based on the information that was available as of the acquisition date to estimate the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed (in thousands):

The goodwill and $158.8 million of other intangibles associated with the trade names are subject to the non-amortization provisions of ASC 350. Other intangibles also include $50.3 million allocated to customer relationships and $6.5 million allocated to backlog, which are being amortized over periods of 7 years and 3 months, respectively. Goodwill of $114.8 million and other intangibles of $215.6 million of the company are allocated to the Residential Kitchen Equipment Group for segment reporting purposes. Of these assets, goodwill of $71.7 million and intangibles of $164.3 million are expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

The net deferred tax asset is comprised of $0.7 million of deferred tax asset related to tax loss carryforwards and $0.3 million of deferred tax liability related to the difference between the book and tax basis on identifiable tangible asset and liability accounts.
The goodwill and $97.1 million of other intangibles associated with the trade names are subject to the non-amortization provisions of ASC 350. Other intangibles also include $41.1 million allocated to customer relationships, $3.4 million allocated to developed technology, and $7.9 million allocated to backlog, which are being amortized over periods of 7 years, 7 years, and 3 months, respectively.

One earnout is payable upon the achievement of product rollout targets. The second earnout is payable during 2026 if the company exceeds certain earnings targets. The contractual obligation associated with the contingent earnout provisions recognized on the acquisition date amount to $9.4 million.
The company believes that information gathered to date provides a reasonable basis for estimating the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, but the company is waiting for additional information necessary to finalize those fair values for all acquisitions completed during 2021. Certain intangible assets are pending external valuation and are preliminarily valued using historical information from the Residential Kitchen Equipment Group and Commercial Foodservice Equipment Group and qualitative assessments of the individual businesses at acquisition date. Specifically, the company estimated the fair values of the intangible assets based on the percentage of purchase price assigned to similar intangible assets in previous acquisitions. Thus, the provisional measurements of fair values set forth above are subject to change. The company expects to complete the purchase price allocation as soon as practicable but no later than one year from the acquisition date.

Pro Forma Financial Information
 
The following unaudited pro forma results of operations for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and April 3, 2021, assumes the 2021 and 2022 acquisitions described above were completed on January 3, 2021 (first day of fiscal year 2021). The pro forma results include adjustments to reflect amortization of intangibles associated with the acquisition and the effects of adjustments made to the carrying value of certain assets (in thousands, except per share data): 
Three Months Ended
 April 2, 2022April 3, 2021
Net sales$994,676 $887,876 
Net earnings112,840 66,300 
Net earnings per share:  
Basic$2.06 $1.20 
Diluted$2.00 $1.18 
 
The historical consolidated financial information of the company and the acquisitions have been adjusted in the pro forma information to give effect to events that are (1) directly attributable to the transactions, (2) factually supportable and (3) expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results. Pro forma data may not be indicative of the results that would have been obtained had these acquisitions occurred at the beginning of the periods presented, nor is it intended to be a projection of future results. Additionally, the pro forma financial information does not reflect the costs which the company has incurred or may incur to integrate the acquired businesses.
3)    Litigation Matters
From time to time, the company is subject to proceedings, lawsuits and other claims related to products, suppliers, employees, customers and competitors. The company maintains insurance to partially cover product liability, workers compensation, property and casualty, and general liability matters. The company is required to assess the likelihood of any adverse judgments or outcomes to these matters as well as potential ranges of probable losses. A determination of the amount of accrual required, if any, for these contingencies is made after assessment of each matter and the related insurance coverage. The required accrual may change in the future due to new developments or changes in approach such as a change in settlement strategy in dealing with these matters. The company does not believe that any pending litigation will have a material effect on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

4)    Recently Issued Accounting Standards
Accounting Pronouncements - Recently Adopted
On May 3, 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options. This new standard provides clarification and reduces diversity in an issuer’s accounting for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options (such as warrants) that remain equity classified after modification or exchange. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The company adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2022 and it did not have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.
Accounting Pronouncements - To be adopted
In November 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-10, Government Assistance (Topic 832), Disclosures by Business Entities About Government Assistance, which requires entities to provide disclosures on material government assistance transactions for annual reporting periods. The disclosures include information around the nature of the assistance, the related accounting policies used to account for government assistance, the effect of government assistance on the entity’s financial statements, and any significant terms and conditions of the agreements, including commitments and contingencies. The new standard is effective for the company on January 2, 2022 and only impacts annual financial statement footnote disclosures. The company is currently evaluating the impacts the adoption of this guidance will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.
In March 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-02, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Troubled Debt Restructurings and Vintage Disclosures. The amendments in this update eliminate the accounting guidance for troubled debt restructurings by creditors while enhancing disclosure requirements for certain loan refinancing and restructurings by creditors made to borrowers experiencing financial difficulty. The amendments also require disclosure of current-period gross write-offs by year of origination for financing receivables. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The standard should be applied prospectively, and it allows for a modified retrospective transition method resulting in a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings in the period of adoption. The company is currently evaluating the impacts the adoption of this guidance will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.
In March 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-01, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Fair Value Hedging—Portfolio Layer Method. The new standard expands and clarifies the use of the portfolio layer method for fair value hedges of interest rate risk. The new standard allows non-prepayable financial assets to also be included in a closed portfolio hedged using the portfolio layer method. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The new guidance on hedging multiple layers in a closed portfolio should be applied prospectively and the guidance on the accounting for fair value basis adjustments should be applied on a modified retrospective basis. The company is currently evaluating the impacts the adoption of this guidance will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.

5)    Revenue Recognition

Disaggregation of Revenue

The company disaggregates its net sales by reportable operating segment and geographical location as the company believes it best depicts how the nature, timing and uncertainty of its net sales and cash flows are affected by economic factors. In general, the Commercial Foodservice Equipment and Residential Foodservice Equipment Groups recognize revenue at the point in time control transfers to their customers based on contractual shipping terms. Revenue from equipment sold under the company's long-term contracts within the Food Processing Equipment group is recognized over time as the equipment is manufactured and assembled. The following table summarizes the company's net sales by reportable operating segment and geographical location (in thousands):

Contract Balances

Contract assets primarily relate to the company's right to consideration for work completed but not billed at the reporting date and are recorded in prepaid expenses and other in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Contract assets are transferred to receivables when the right to consideration becomes unconditional. Accounts receivable are not considered contract assets under the revenue standard as contract assets are conditioned upon the company's future satisfaction of a performance obligation. Accounts receivable, in contracts, are unconditional rights to consideration.

Contract liabilities relate to advance consideration received from customers for which revenue has not been recognized. Current contract liabilities are recorded in accrued expenses in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Non-current contract liabilities are recorded in other non-current liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Contract liabilities are reduced when the associated revenue from the contract is recognized.

The following table provides information about contract assets and contract liabilities from contracts with customers (in thousands):
