At June 19, 2018, there were 315 company-operated and 251 franchise-operated Del Taco restaurants located in 14 states, including one franchise-operated unit in Guam.
2. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). For additional information, these unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2019 ("2018 Form 10-K").
 
The Company’s fiscal year ends on the Tuesday closest to December 31. Fiscal year 2019 is a fifty-two week period ending December 31, 2019. Fiscal year 2018 is a fifty-two week period ended January 1, 2019. In a fifty-two week fiscal year, the first, second and third quarters each include twelve weeks of operations and the fourth quarter includes sixteen weeks of operations. For fiscal year 2019, the Company’s accompanying financial statements reflect the twelve weeks ended June 18, 2019. For fiscal year 2018, the Company’s accompanying financial statements reflect the twelve weeks ended June 19, 2018.
Effective January 2, 2019 (the first day of fiscal year 2019), the Company adopted the requirements of Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as discussed below in Note 2, using the modified retrospective method of transition. Current year results have been prepared in accordance with the new standard.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results of operations to be expected for the full fiscal year.
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly and majority owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Management believes that such estimates have been based on reasonable and supportable assumptions and the resulting estimates are reasonable for use in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements. Actual results could differ from these estimates. The Company’s significant estimates include estimates for impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and property and equipment, valuations provided in business combinations, insurance reserves, restaurant closure reserves, stock-based compensation, contingent liabilities, certain leasing activities and income tax valuation allowances.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service Contract, which clarifies the accounting implementation costs in cloud computing arrangements. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the standard on its consolidated financial statements.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities, and issued additional clarifications and improvements during 2018. This guidance amends and simplifies existing guidance in order to allow companies to more accurately present the economic effects of risk management activities in the financial statements. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those years. There was no material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements and related disclosures as a result of adopting this standard.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), along with related clarifications and improvements. This guidance results in key changes to lease accounting and aims to bring leases onto balance sheets to give investors, lenders, and other financial statement users a more comprehensive view of a company's long-term financial obligations as well as the assets it owns versus leases. The pronouncement requires lessees to recognize a liability for lease obligations, which represents the discounted obligation to make future lease payments, and a corresponding right-of-use asset on the balance sheet. The Company adopted the requirements of the new lease standard effective January 2, 2019, the first day of fiscal year 2019, electing the optional transition method to apply the standard as of the effective date and therefore will not apply the standard to the comparative periods presented in the Company's financial statements. During the process of adoption, the Company made the following elections:

The Company elected the package of practical expedients which allowed the Company to not reassess:
Whether existing or expired contracts contain leases under the new definition of a lease;
Lease classification for existing or expired leases; and
Initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases to determine if they would qualify for capitalization under ASC 842.
The Company did not elect the hindsight practical expedient, which permits the use of hindsight when determining lease term and impairment of operating lease assets.
The Company did not elect the land easement practical expedient, which permits an entity to continue applying its current policy for accounting for land easements that existed as of, or expired before, the effective date of Topic 842.
The Company elected to make the accounting policy election for short-term leases, permitting the Company to not apply the recognition requirements of this standard to short-term leases with terms of 12 months or less.

Upon adoption of ASU 2016-02, the Company recorded operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities and derecognized all landlord funded assets, deemed landlord financing liabilities, deferred rent liabilities and favorable lease assets and unfavorable lease liabilities upon transition. Upon adoption, the Company recorded operating lease liabilities of approximately $230.6 million based on the present value of the remaining rental payments using discount rates as of the effective date. In addition, the Company recorded corresponding operating lease right-of-use assets of approximately $218.9 million, calculated as the initial amount of the Company's operating lease liabilities adjusted for prepaid and deferred rent, unamortized favorable lease assets and unamortized unfavorable lease liabilities, liabilities associated with lease termination costs and impairment of right-of-use assets recognized in retained earnings as of January 2, 2019. At the beginning of the period of adoption, the Company recorded the cumulative effect of adoption to retained earnings. Beginning in fiscal 2019, leases historically treated as deemed landlord financing liabilities will be treated as operating leases resulting in an increase in occupancy and other expense and a decrease to depreciation expense and interest expense.

Revenue Recognition
The adoption of Topic 606 in Fiscal 2018 changed the timing of the recognition of initial franchise fees, including franchise and development fees, and renewal fees, both included in franchise revenue in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. Franchise and renewal fees are deferred and recognized over the term of the related franchise agreement for the respective restaurant. Franchise agreements typically have a term of twenty years. 
During the twelve and twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company recognized approximately $20,000 and $41,000, respectively, in franchise revenue related to the amortization of the deferred franchise fees recognized at January 1, 2019. During the twelve and twenty-four weeks ended June 19, 2018, the Company recognized approximately $15,000 and $28,000, respectively, in franchise revenue related to the amortization of the deferred franchise fees recognized at January 2, 2018.
Deferred franchise fees are recognized straight-line over the term of the underlying agreement and the amount expected to be recognized in franchise revenue for amounts in deferred franchise fees as of June 18, 2019 is as follows (in thousands):

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Except for the accounting policies for leases discussed in Note 7 that were updated as a result of adopting Topic 842, there have been no changes to our significant accounting policies described in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2019, filed with the SEC on March 18, 2019, that have had a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related notes.
3. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Restaurant Closure Charges
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
The Company evaluates long-lived assets for indicators of impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. The Company considers a triggering event to have occurred related to a specific restaurant if the restaurant’s cash flows are less than a minimum threshold or if consistent levels of undiscounted cash flows for the remaining lease period are less than the carrying value of the restaurant’s assets.  Long-lived assets are grouped and evaluated for impairment at the lowest level for which there are identifiable cash flows that are independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets. The Company evaluates such cash flows for individual restaurants and franchise agreements on an undiscounted basis. If it is determined that the carrying amounts of such long-lived assets are not recoverable, the assets are written down to their estimated fair values. We generally estimate fair value using the discounted value of the estimated cash flows associated with the respective restaurant or agreement, using Level 3 inputs. The impairment charges represent the excess of each operating lease asset, furniture, fixtures and equipment and leasehold improvements carrying amount over its estimated fair value.
In connection with the adoption of Topic 842, the Company evaluated the operating lease right-of-use assets for impairment indicating the carrying amount of the operating lease assets for certain restaurants may not be recoverable and recorded an impairment charge totaling $3.1 million at January 2, 2019 based on the estimates of future recoverable cash flows.

During the twelve and twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company evaluated certain restaurants having indicators of impairment based on operating performance and recorded an additional impairment charge totaling $3.7 million related to two restaurants. The Company wrote-off a portion of the operating lease right-of-use assets, furniture, fixtures and equipment and leasehold improvements based on the estimate of future recoverable cash flows. During the twenty-four weeks ended June 19, 2018, the Company evaluated certain restaurants having indicators of impairment based on operating performance and recorded an impairment charge totaling $1.7 million related to two restaurants. The Company wrote-off the value of leasehold improvements and other equipment based on the estimate of future recoverable cash flows.
Restaurant Closure Charges, Net
At June 18, 2019 and January 1, 2019, the restaurant closure liability was $0.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively. The details of the restaurant closure activities are discussed below.
Restaurant Closures and Lease Reserves
At January 1, 2019, the restaurant closure liability balance was $0.3 million related to restaurant closures prior to 2015. During the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, in connection with the adoption of Topic 842, the Company reclassified the $0.3 million restaurant closure liability to offset the respective operating lease right-of-use assets.
Restaurant Closure and Other Related Charges for 12 Underperforming Restaurants
During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2015, the Company closed 12 company-operated restaurants. During the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, in connection with the adoption of Topic 842, the Company reclassified approximately $1.9 million of the lease related restaurant closure liability to offset the respective operating lease right-of-use assets. A summary of the restaurant closure liability activity for these 12 closed restaurants consisted of the following (in thousands):

The non-current portion of the restaurant closure liability is zero and $1.6 million at June 18, 2019 and January 1, 2019, respectively, and is included in other non-current liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets.

4. Summary of Refranchising and Franchise Acquisitions
In connection with the sale of company-operated restaurants to franchisees, the Company typically enters into several agreements, in addition to an asset purchase agreement, with franchisees including franchise and lease agreements. The Company typically sells restaurants’ inventory and equipment and retains ownership of the leasehold interest to the real estate to sublease to the franchisee. The Company has determined that its restaurant dispositions usually represent multiple-element arrangements, and as a result, the cash consideration received is allocated to the separate elements based on their relative selling price. Cash consideration generally includes up-front consideration for the sale of the restaurants and franchise fees and future cash consideration for royalties and lease payments. The Company considers the future lease payments in allocating the initial cash consideration received. The Company compares the stated rent under the lease and/or sublease agreements with comparable market rents and the Company records favorable lease assets or unfavorable lease liabilities with a corresponding offset to the gain or loss on the sale of the company-operated restaurants. The cash consideration per restaurant for franchise fees is consistent with the amounts stated in the related franchise agreements which are charged for separate standalone arrangements. The Company initially defers and subsequently recognizes the franchise fees over the term of the franchise agreement. Future royalty income is also recognized in revenue as earned.
The Company sold thirteen company-operated restaurants to franchisees during the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019. There was no refranchising activity during the twenty-four weeks ended June 19, 2018. The following table summarizes the related net loss recognized during the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019 (dollars in thousands):

The Company's material leases consist of restaurant locations and its executive offices with expiration dates through 2044. In general, the leases have remaining terms of 1-20 years, most of which include options to extend the leases for additional five-year periods. The lease term is generally the minimum noncancelable period of the lease. The Company does not include option periods unless the Company determines that it is reasonably certain of exercising the option at inception or when a triggering event occurs.
The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. The right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date. In determining the Company’s right-of-use assets and lease liabilities, the Company applies a discount rate to the lease payments within each lease agreement. As most of the Company’s lease agreements do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of future payments. The right-of-use asset also includes any lease payments made and is reduced by lease incentives, initial direct costs incurred and impairment of operating lease right-of-use assets and adjusted by favorable lease assets and unfavorable lease liabilities.
Some of the Company's lease agreements contain rent escalation clauses (including adjustments based on changes in indexes), rent holidays, capital improvement funding or other lease concessions. The Company recognizes rental expense on a straight-line basis based on fixed components of a lease arrangement and the Company amortizes this expense over the term of the lease

beginning with the date of initial possession. Variable lease components represent amounts that are not fixed in nature and are recognized in expense as incurred.
The Company has subleased certain properties to other third parties where the Company remains primarily liable to the landlord for the performance of all obligations in the event that the sub-lessee does not perform its obligations under the lease. As a result of the sublease arrangements, future rental commitments under operating leases will be offset by sublease amounts to be paid by the sub-lessee. In general, the terms of the sublease are similar to the terms of the master lease.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)

As of June 18, 2019, we have legally binding lease payments related to restaurant leases that have not yet commenced of $22.5 million.
During the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company entered into three sale leaseback arrangements with third party private investors, with two arrangements occurring during the first quarter 2019 and one during the second quarter 2019. These sale-leaseback transactions do not provide for any continuing involvement by the Company other than normal leases where the Company intends to use the property during the lease term. The leases have been accounted for as operating leases. The net proceeds from the transactions totaled approximately $12.7 million. Under two of the arrangements, the Company sold the land and buildings related to restaurants constructed during 2018 and leased them back for a term of 20 years. Under one of the arrangements, the Company sold the land related to a restaurant constructed during 2018 and leased it back for a term of 20 years. The sale of these properties resulted in a loss of approximately $0.2 million which is included in loss on disposal of assets, net in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income. The assets sold were included in assets held for sale as of January 1, 2019.
8. Derivative Instruments
2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement
In June 2016, the Company entered into an interest rate cap agreement that became effective July 1, 2016, to hedge cash flows associated with interest rate fluctuations on variable rate debt, with a termination date of March 31, 2020 ("2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement"). The 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement had an initial notional amount of $70.0 million of the 2015 Senior Credit Facility that effectively converted that portion of the outstanding balance of the 2015 Senior Credit Facility from variable rate debt to capped variable rate debt, resulting in a change in the applicable interest rate from an interest rate of one-month LIBOR plus the applicable margin (as provided by the 2015 Senior Credit Facility) to a capped interest rate of 2.00% plus the applicable margin. As of June 18, 2019, one-month LIBOR was 2.44%. During the twelve and twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company received payments totaling approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively, related to the 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement. During the period from July 1, 2016 through June 18, 2019, the 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement had no hedge ineffectiveness.
To ensure the effectiveness of the 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement, the Company elected the one-month LIBOR rate option for its variable rate interest payments on term balances equal to or in excess of the applicable notional amount of the interest rate cap agreement as of each reset date. The reset dates and other critical terms on the term loans perfectly match with the interest rate cap reset dates and other critical terms during the twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019.
During the twelve weeks and twenty-four weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company reclassified approximately $37,000 and $0.1 million, respectively, of interest expense related to the hedges of these transactions into earnings. As of June 18, 2019, the Company was hedging forecasted transactions expected to occur through March 31, 2020. Assuming interest rates at June 18, 2019 remain constant, $0.2 million of interest expense related to hedges of these transactions is expected to be reclassified into earnings over the next 9 months. The Company intends to ensure that this hedge remains effective, therefore, approximately $0.2 million is expected to be reclassified into interest expense over the next 9 months.
The effective portion of the 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement through June 18, 2019 was included in accumulated other comprehensive income.
9. Fair Value Measurements
The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and other accrued liabilities approximate their carrying amounts due to their short maturities. The carrying value of the 2015 Senior Credit Facility approximated fair value. The 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement is recorded at fair value in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.
As of June 18, 2019 and January 1, 2019, the Company held certain assets and liabilities that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis. For both periods, this included a derivative instrument related to interest rates. The Company determined the fair value of the interest rate cap contract based on counterparty quotes, with appropriate adjustments for any significant impact of nonperformance risk of the parties to the interest rate cap contract. Therefore, the Company categorized

this interest rate cap contract as Level 2 fair value measurements. The fair value of the 2016 Interest Rate Cap Agreement was $0.1 million and $0.5 million at June 18, 2019 and January 1, 2019, respectively, and is included in other assets in the consolidated balance sheets.

The Board of Directors authorized an additional increase for the repurchase program effective July 23, 2018 of another $25.0 million, to a total of $75.0 million. Purchases under the program may be made in open market or privately negotiated transactions. During the twelve weeks ended June 18, 2019, the Company repurchased (1) 303,607 shares of common stock for an average price per share of $10.05 for an aggregate cost of approximately $3.1 million, including incremental direct costs to acquire the shares, and (2) 6,186 warrants for an average price per warrant of $1.30 for an aggregate cost of approximately $8,000, including incremental direct costs to acquire the warrants.

As of June 18, 2019, there was approximately $22.3 million remaining under the share repurchase program. The Company has no obligations to repurchase shares or warrants under this authorization, and the timing and value of shares and warrants purchased will depend on the Company's stock price, warrant price, market conditions and other factors.
13. Earnings Per Share
Basic income per share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to Del Taco’s common shareholders for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. In computing diluted income per share, basic income per share is adjusted for the assumed issuance of all applicable potentially dilutive share-based awards, including warrants, restricted stock and common stock options.
