1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Business
Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) is a highly differentiated, rapidly growing specialty retailer of hard surface flooring and related accessories. We offer a broad in stock assortment of tile, wood, laminate and natural stone flooring along with decorative and installation accessories at everyday low prices. Our stores appeal to a variety of customers, including professional installers and commercial businesses (“Pro”), Do It Yourself customers (“DIY”) and customers who buy the products for professional installation (“Buy it Yourself” or “BIY”). We operate within one reportable segment.
As of March 28, 2019, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Floor and Decor Outlets of America, Inc. (“F&D”), operates 103 warehouse-format stores, which average 75,000 square feet, and one small-format standalone design center in 28 states, as well as three distribution centers and an e-commerce site, FloorandDecor.com.
The Company’s fiscal year is the 52- or 53-week period ending on the Thursday on or preceding December 31st. Fiscal years ended December 26, 2019 (“fiscal 2019”) and December 27, 2018 (“fiscal 2018”) include 52 weeks. When a 53-week fiscal year occurs, we report the additional week at the end of the fiscal fourth quarter. 52-week fiscal years consist of thirteen-week periods in the first, second, third and fourth quarters of the fiscal year.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and our wholly owned subsidiaries. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 27, 2018 has been derived from the audited Consolidated Balance Sheet for the fiscal year then ended. The interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read together with the audited consolidated financial statements and related footnote disclosures included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 25, 2019 (the “Annual Report”).
Management believes the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented.
Results of operations for the thirteen weeks ended March 28, 2019 and March 29, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
There have been no updates to our Significant Accounting Policies since the Annual Report, except for the policy changes in connection with the newly adopted lease accounting standard outlined in Note 5. For information regarding our Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates, see the “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” section of “Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of our Annual Report.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
There have been no updates to Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements that have yet to be adopted since the Annual Report. For information regarding Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements, see the “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” section of “Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of our Annual Report.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)." ASU No. 2016-02 requires that lessees recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet with an option to exclude short-term leases (leases with terms of 12 months or less). The guidance also requires disclosures about the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. We adopted the ASU on December 28, 2018, the first day of our fiscal year 2019, using the modified retrospective approach. The cumulative effect adjustment upon adoption resulted in an immaterial opening balance sheet reduction to retained earnings. The adoption of ASU No. 2016-02 in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 had a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet in respect to the right of use assets, lease liabilities, tenant improvement allowances, and deferred rent but did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income or Statements of Cash Flows. Refer to Note 5 for further details.
