NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(amounts in thousands except share and per share data)

(unaudited)

 

1.    Business Description and Basis of Presentation

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017 of Differential Brands Group Inc. and its subsidiaries (we,” “us,” the “Company” or “Differential”) has been derived from audited financial statements of the Company. The condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 and the related footnote information have been prepared on a basis consistent with the consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. In addition, these condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements and thus should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) that management considers necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the interim periods presented. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results anticipated for the entire year ending December 31, 2018. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

 

The Company began operations in 1987 as Innovo, Inc. Since the Company’s founding, the Company has evolved from producing craft and accessory products to designing and selling apparel products. Currently,  the Company’s principal business activity involves the design, development and worldwide marketing of: (i) apparel products, which include denim jeans, related casual wear and accessories bearing the brand name Hudson®; (ii) apparel products and accessories bearing the brand name Robert Graham®; and (iii) footwear, apparel and accessories bearing the brand name SWIMS®. Our primary operating subsidiaries are Hudson Clothing, LLC (“Hudson”), Robert Graham Designs, LLC and Robert Graham Retail, LLC (collectively “Robert Graham or  “RG”), and DFBG Swims, LLC (“Swims”). In addition, we have other non-operating subsidiaries.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

In connection with the acquisition of all of the outstanding equity interests of RG Parent LLC and its subsidiaries on January 28, 2016 (the “RG Merger”), we entered into (i) a credit and security agreement (as later amended, the “ABL Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as lender, (ii) a credit and security agreement with TCW Asset Management Company, as agent, and the lenders party thereto (as later amended, the “Term Credit Agreement”), and (iii) an amended and restated deferred purchase factoring agreement with CIT Commercial Services, Inc.

2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Information regarding significant accounting policies is contained in Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” of the consolidated financial statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.

 

Correction of an Immaterial Error

 

During the 2017 year end close, the Company determined that basic and diluted Earnings per Share (“EPS”) had been incorrectly stated in the prior period financial statements. Historically, cumulative preferred dividends for the period were not included in the Company’s calculation of EPS. However, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260, Earnings per Share, income available to common stockholders is to be computed by deducting the dividends accumulated for the period on cumulative preferred stock. The Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) entitles the holder to receive cumulative dividends when, as and if declared by the Board of Directors, payable at an annual rate of 10% through the date on which the liquidation preference is paid to the holder in connection with the liquidation of the Company or the date on which such Series A Preferred Stock is otherwise re-acquired by the Company. The amount of the cumulative dividend accrued on the Series A Preferred Stock has been disclosed previously in the Company’s filings. The Company has corrected the calculation of basic and diluted EPS to include the accrued cumulative preferred dividends for the period. Management evaluated the materiality of the error from a quantitative and qualitative perspective and concluded that this adjustment was not material to the Company’s presentation and disclosures, and has no impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Accordingly, no amendments to previously filed reports are required. However, the Company has elected to revise the historical condensed consolidated financial information presented herein to reflect the correction of this error for the prior period presented and to conform to the current period presentation. As a result of this correction, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, basic and diluted loss per common share was corrected from a loss of $0.18 per share to a loss of $0.28 per share.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, with a date of initial application of January 1, 2018. As a result, the Company has changed its accounting policy for revenue recognition as described below. The Company applied ASC 606 using the modified retrospective approach – i.e. by recognizing the cumulative effect of initially applying ASC 606 as an adjustment to the opening balance of equity at January 1, 2018. Therefore, the comparative information has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under ASC 605. The details of the significant changes and quantitative impact of the changes are set out below. The Company applied the modified retrospective approach only to contracts that were not complete as of the date of the initial application, January 1, 2018.

 

Effective January 1, 2018, wholesale revenues are recorded when a contract with the customer is agreed to by both parties and product has been transferred, which occurs at the point of shipment from the Company’s warehouse, and recorded at the transaction price based on the amount the Company expects to receive. Collection is probable as the majority of shipments occur to reputable credit worthy businesses and through factored relationships which guarantee payment. Estimated reductions to revenue for customer allowances are recorded based upon history as a percentage of sales and current outstanding chargebacks. The Company may allow for returns based upon pre-approval or in the case of damaged goods. Such returns are estimated based on historical experience and also specific claims filed by the customer. Beginning January 1, 2018, a refund liability is included in accounts payable and accrued expenses within the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet, which was previously recorded net of accounts receivable. Also, effective January 1, 2018, the Company records a return asset receivable in prepaid expenses and other current assets within the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. Prior to January 1, 2018, inventory expected to be

Table of Contents

returned was recorded within inventories. The return asset receivable is evaluated for impairment each period. The Company recorded a decrease of $569 thousand to opening accumulated deficit as of January 1, 2018 to record the return asset receivable and related impairment charge.

 

Retail store revenue is recognized at the time the customer takes possession of the related merchandise. Ecommerce sales of products ordered through the Company’s retail internet sites known as www.hudsonjeans.com,  www.robertgraham.us and www.swims.com are recognized at the point of shipment to the customer. Prior to January 1, 2018, revenue for ecommerce sales was recorded at the point of delivery to the customer. The Company recorded an adjustment to opening accumulated deficit as of January 1, 2018, an increase of  $39 thousand, to reflect the change in accounting policy. Ecommerce revenue is reduced by an estimate for returns based on the historical rate of return as a percent of sales. Retail store revenue and ecommerce revenue exclude sales taxes.

 

Revenue from licensing arrangements is recognized based on actual sales when the Company expects royalties to exceed the minimum guarantee. For licensing arrangements in which the Company does not expect royalties to exceed the minimum guarantee, an estimate of the transaction price is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract. A contract asset is recorded for revenue recognized in advance of the contract payment terms, which is included in other assets within the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. Nonrefundable upfront fees are recorded as a contract liability and revenue is recognized straight-line over the term of the contract. Contract liabilities are included in other liabilities within the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. Prior to January 1, 2018, revenue from licensing arrangements was recognized when earned in accordance with the terms of the underlying agreements and deemed collectible, generally based upon the higher of (a) the contractually guaranteed minimum royalty or (b) actual net sales data received from licensees. The Company recorded an adjustment to opening accumulated deficit as of January 1, 2018, an increase of $1.3 million, to reflect the change in accounting policy.

 

Amounts related to shipping and handling that are billed to customers are considered to be activities to fulfill a promise to transfer the goods and are reflected in net sales, and the related costs are reflected in cost of goods sold within the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). This accounting policy is consistent with the Company’s treatment of shipping and handling revenue prior to January 1, 2018.

Financial Accounting Standards Recently Adopted

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, ASC 606. This amendment prescribes that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. The amendment supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and most industry-specific guidance throughout the Industry Topics of the Codification. For the Company’s annual and interim reporting periods the mandatory adoption date of ASC 606 is January 1, 2018, and two methods of adoption are allowed, either a full retrospective adoption or a modified retrospective adoption. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, which deferred the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 to the first quarter of 2018. In March 2016, April 2016, May 2016, December 2016 and May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, ASU No. 2016-10, ASU No. 2016-12, ASU No. 2016-20, and ASU No. 2017-10, respectively, as clarifications to ASU No. 2014-09. ASU No. 2016-08 clarifies how to identify the unit of accounting for the principal versus agent evaluation, how to apply the control principle to certain types of arrangements, such as service transactions, and reframed the indicators in the guidance to focus on evidence that an entity is acting as a principal rather than as an agent. ASU No. 2016-10 clarifies the existing guidance on identifying performance obligations and licensing implementation. ASU No. 2016-12 adds practical expedients related to the transition for contract modifications and further defines a completed contract, clarifies the objective of the collectability assessment and how revenue is recognized if collectability is not probable, and when non-cash considerations should be measured. ASU No. 2016-20 corrects or improves guidance in 13 narrow focus aspects of the guidance. ASU No. 2017-10 clarifies that the grantor in a service concession arrangement is the operating entity’s customer for purposes of

11


 

Table of Contents

revenue recognition. The effective dates for these ASUs are the same as the effective date for ASU No. 2014-09, for the Company’s annual and interim periods beginning January 1, 2018. These ASUs also require enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows. The Company adopted the new revenue standards in the first quarter of 2018 using the modified retrospective approach. Please see above for a description of the changes.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. ASU No. 2016-15 amends the guidance in ASC 230 on the classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows. The primary purpose of ASU No. 2016-15 is to reduce the diversity in practice that has resulted from the lack of consistent principles on this topic. ASU No. 2016-15 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and early adoption is permitted for all entities. Entities must apply the guidance retrospectively to all periods presented but may apply it prospectively from the earliest date practicable if retrospective application would be impracticable. The Company adopted ASU No. 2016-15 in the first quarter of 2018 and there was no impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Recently Issued Financial Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which affects the accounting for leases. The guidance requires lessees to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by all leases with terms of more than 12 months. The amendment also will require qualitative and quantitative disclosures designed to give financial statement users information on the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within that reporting period. Early application is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the new standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements, but anticipates an increase in assets and liabilities due to the recognition of the required right-of-use asset and corresponding liability for all lease obligations that are currently classified as operating leases, such as real estate leases for corporate headquarters, administrative offices, retail stores, and showrooms as well as additional disclosure on all its lease obligations. The income statement recognition of lease expense is not expected to significantly change from the current methodology.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments — Credit Losses — Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, an accounting standards update that introduces a new model for recognizing credit losses on financial instruments based on an estimate of current expected credit losses. This includes accounts receivable, trade receivables, loans, held-to-maturity debt securities, net investments in leases and certain off-balance sheet credit exposures. The guidance also modifies the impairment model for available-for-sale debt securities. The update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within that reporting period.  The Company is currently assessing the potential effects this update may have on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, Income Statement—Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. ASU No. 2018-02 permits entities to reclassify tax effects stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income as a result of tax reform to retained earnings. This ASU gives entities the option to reclassify these amounts and requires new disclosures, regardless of whether they elect to do so. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption in any period is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU No. 2018-02 will have on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

 

3.    Factored Accounts and Receivables

A&R Factoring Agreement

 

In January 2016, in connection with the RG Merger, the Company entered into the A&R Factoring Agreement with CIT, through its subsidiaries, Robert Graham and Hudson. Following the SWIMS acquisition, SWIMS became a party to the A&R Factoring Agreement pursuant to a joinder agreement dated November 16, 2018. The A&R Factoring Agreement provides that the Company sell and assign to CIT certain domestic accounts receivable, including accounts

12


 

Table of Contents

arising from or related to sales of inventory and the rendition of services. Under the A&R Factoring Agreement, the Company pays various factoring rates depending on the credit risk associated with the nature of the account. The A&R Factoring Agreement may be terminated by CIT upon 60 days’ written notice or immediately upon the occurrence of an event of default as defined in the agreement.  The A&R Factoring Agreement may be terminated by the Company upon 60 days’ written notice prior to December 31, 2020 or annually with 60 days’ written notice prior to December 31 of each year thereafter.

 

SWIMS Factoring Agreement

 

In connection with the acquisition of SWIMS, SWIMS has maintained a preexisting Credit Assurance and Factoring Agreement between SWIMS and DNB Bank ASA (“DNB”), dated August 26, 2013 (the “SWIMS Factoring Agreement”). The SWIMS Factoring Agreement is a combined credit assurance and factoring agreement, pursuant to which SWIMS is granted financing of up to 80% of its preapproved outstanding invoiced international receivables. DNB receives an annual commission based on invoiced revenues and a quarterly commission of the maximum financing amount plus other administrative costs. The SWIMS Factoring Agreement is secured with (a) first-priority lien on SWIMS’s (i) machinery and plant (up to NOK 10.0 million) and (ii) inventory (up to NOK 10.0 million) and (b) additional liens on SWIMS’s factoring in the amount of NOK 1.0 million (first lien), NOK 4.0 million (second lien), NOK 7.0 million (third lien) and NOK 2.5 million (fourth lien). The SWIMS Factoring Agreement may be terminated by SWIMS upon 14 days’ prior written notice for any reason and by DNB upon 14 days’ prior written notice for just cause. DNB may also terminate the SWIMS Factoring Agreement without any prior written notice in the event of a material breach by SWIMS. As of March 31, 2018, SWIMS had outstanding financing commitments on NOK 20.6 million (approximately $2.7 million as of March 31, 2018) of its preapproved outstanding invoiced receivables pursuant to the SWIMS Factoring Agreement.
