Description of Business and Significant Accounting Policies

Business

Primo Water Corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Primo”, “we”, “our,” “us”) is a rapidly growing provider of three- and five-gallon purified bottled water, self-serve filtered drinking water, water dispensers and sparkling beverage appliances sold through major retailers in the United States and Canada.

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with our accounting practices described in our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, and are unaudited. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 2011. The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and, accordingly, do not include all the disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) with respect to annual financial statements. Certain 2011 amounts in the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2012 presentation, with no effect on stockholders’ equity or net loss as previously presented.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized for the sale of multi-gallon purified bottled water upon either the delivery of inventory to the retail store or the purchase by the consumer. Revenue is either recognized as an exchange transaction (where a discount is provided on the purchase of a multi-gallon bottle of purified water for the return of an empty multi-gallon bottle) or a non-exchange transaction. Revenues on exchange transactions are recognized net of the exchange discount. Self-serve filtered water revenue is recognized as the water is filtered, which is measured by the water dispensing equipment meter.

  Revenue is recognized for the sale of our water dispensers and Flavorstation products when title is transferred to our retail customers. We have no contractual obligation to accept returns nor do we guarantee sales. However, we will at times accept returns or issue credits for products with manufacturer defects or that were damaged in transit. Revenues are recognized net of an estimated allowance for returns using an average return rate based upon historical experience.

In addition, we offer certain incentives such as coupons and rebates that are netted against and reduce net sales in the consolidated statements of operations. With the purchase of certain of our water dispensers we include a coupon for a free multi-gallon bottle of purified water. No revenue is recognized with respect to the redemption of the coupon for a free multi-gallon bottle of water and the estimated cost of the multi-gallon bottle of purified water is included in cost of sales.

Accounts Receivable

All trade accounts receivable are due from customers located within the United States and Canada. We maintain an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make required payments. Accounts receivable, net includes allowances for doubtful accounts of $364 and $471 at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  The allowance for doubtful accounts is based on a review of specifically identified accounts in addition to an overall aging analysis. Judgments are made with respect to the collectability of accounts receivable based on historical experience and current economic trends. Actual losses could differ from those estimates.

Goodwill and Intangible Assets
 
We classify intangible assets into three categories: (1) intangible assets with definite lives subject to amortization, (2) intangible assets with indefinite lives not subject to amortization and (3) goodwill. We determine the useful lives of our identifiable intangible assets after considering the specific facts and circumstances related to each intangible asset. Factors we consider when determining useful lives include the contractual term of any agreement related to the asset, the historical performance of the asset, our long-term strategy for using the asset, any laws or other local regulations which could impact the useful life of the asset, and other economic factors, including competition and specific market conditions. Intangible assets that are deemed to have definite lives are amortized, primarily on a straight-line basis, over their useful lives.
 
 
7

 
We test intangible assets determined to have indefinite useful lives, including trademarks and goodwill, for impairment annually, or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate that assets might be impaired. We perform these annual impairment reviews as of the first day of our fourth quarter. We have assigned goodwill to two reporting units – Water and Flavorstation.  In evaluating reporting units, we first consider our operating segments and related components in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  The goodwill impairment test consists of a two-step process, if necessary. The first step involves a comparison of the fair value of a reporting unit to its carrying value. The fair value is estimated based on a number of factors including operating results, business plans and future cash flows. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the second step of the process is performed which compares the implied value of the reporting unit goodwill with the carrying value of the goodwill of that reporting unit. If the carrying value of the goodwill of a reporting unit exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. For indefinite-lived intangible assets, other than goodwill, if the carrying amount exceeds the fair value, an impairment charge is recognized in an amount equal to that excess.
 
We determine the fair value of our reporting units based on a combination of the income approach, using a discounted cash flow model, and a market approach, which considers comparable companies and transactions. Under the income approach, the discounted cash flow model determines fair value based on the present value of projected cash flows over a specific projection period and a residual value related to future cash flows beyond the projection period. Both values are discounted using a rate which reflects our best estimate of the weighted average cost of capital of a market participant, and is adjusted for appropriate risk factors. We perform sensitivity tests with respect to growth rates and discount rates used in the income approach. Under the market approach, valuation multiples are derived based on a selection of comparable companies and acquisition transactions, and applied to projected operating data for each reporting unit to arrive at an indication of fair value.
 
As of December 31, 2011, we performed an interim impairment test of our goodwill and other identifiable intangible assets due to events and changes in circumstances that indicated an impairment might have occurred. The factor deemed by management to have constituted a potential impairment triggering event was the decrease in our stock price relative to our book value. The analysis indicated that the fair values of each of our reporting units exceeded their respective carrying values. At that time, we also compared the aggregate estimated fair values of our reporting units from the impairment analysis to our overall market capitalization with appropriate consideration of a control premium.  Based on these analyses, we concluded that goodwill was not impaired and we were not required to perform step two of the goodwill impairment testing methodology.
 
Fair Value Measurements
 
Fair value rules currently apply to all financial assets and liabilities and for certain nonfinancial assets and liabilities that are required to be recognized or disclosed at fair value. For this purpose, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.
 
U.S. GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include:

●   
Level 1 — quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
 
●   
Level 2 — observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
 
●   
Level 3 — unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data available, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

During the three months ended March 31, 2012, there were no changes in the $2,559 fair value of the Omnifrio milestone payments (see Note 3 – Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business for more details), which are measured at fair value on a recurring basis using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs).
 
 
8


The carrying amounts of our financial instruments, which include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other accrued expenses, approximate their fair values due to their short maturities. Based on borrowing rates currently available to us for loans with similar terms, the carrying value of debt, capital leases and notes payable approximates fair value.

Concentrations of Risk

Our principal financial instruments subject to potential concentration of credit risk are cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, accounts payable and accrued expenses. We invest our funds in a highly rated institution and believe the financial risks associated with cash and cash equivalents are minimal.

We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers’ financial condition and maintain allowances for doubtful accounts that we believe are sufficient to provide for losses that may be sustained on realization of accounts receivable.

Basic and Diluted Net loss Per Share

Net loss per share has been computed using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted amounts per share include the dilutive impact, if any, of our outstanding potential common shares, such as options and warrants and convertible preferred stock. Potential common shares that are anti-dilutive are excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per common share.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, stock options, unvested shares of restricted stock, restricted stock units and warrants with respect to an aggregate of 605 and 355 shares have been excluded from the computation of the number of shares used in the diluted earnings per share, respectively.  These shares have been excluded because we incurred a net loss for each of these periods and their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

Cumulative Translation Adjustment and Foreign Currency Transactions

The local currency of our operations in Canada is considered to be the functional currency. Assets and liabilities of the Canada subsidiary are translated into U. S. dollars using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Results of operations are translated using the average exchange rate prevailing throughout the period. The effects of unrealized exchange rate fluctuations on translating foreign currency assets and liabilities into U. S. dollars are accumulated as the cumulative translation adjustment included in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the statement of stockholders’ equity. With the exception of transaction gains and losses on certain intercompany balances which we have determined are of a long-term investment nature, realized gains and losses on foreign currency transactions are included in the statement of operations. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, accumulated other comprehensive loss balances of ($56) and ($520), respectively, were related to unrealized foreign currency translation adjustments and transaction gains and losses on certain intercompany balances.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance to amend the presentation of comprehensive income to allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both instances, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  The guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity.  In December 2011, the FASB issued guidance to indefinitely defer provisions requiring reclassification adjustments out of other comprehensive income to be presented on the face of the financial statements. The other portions of the original guidance remain unchanged.  These standards are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and are to be applied retrospectively.  We have included such disclosures within this quarterly report.

We entered into a senior revolving credit facility in November 2010 that was amended in April 2011, September 2011, November 2011 and March 2012 (“Prior Senior Revolving Credit Facility”). At March 31, 2012, our outstanding balance under our Prior Senior Revolving Credit Facility was $14,660 and we had no additional availability.  For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, we were not in compliance with our financial covenants.  The Prior Senior Revolving Credit Facility matured on April 30, 2012 and was repaid in full in connection with the closing of the Senior Revolving Credit Facility (as defined below) and the Term Loan (as defined below).

Interest expense related to deferred loan costs amortization was $670 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  We amortized the remaining amount of $576 in deferred loan costs related to the Prior Senior Revolving Credit Facility in April 2012.

We entered into a senior revolving credit facility (the “Senior Revolving Credit Facility”) on April 30, 2012 that provides for total borrowing availability of up to $20,000 subject to borrowing base requirements related to our eligible accounts receivable and inventory and subject to a $2,000 reserve requirement. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility has a three and one-half year term and is secured either on a first priority or second priority basis by substantially all of our assets. The term of the Senior Revolving Credit Facility may be extended up to April 30, 2017 so long as the maturity of the Term Loan is extended to at least October 30, 2017. As of April 30, 2012, we had approximately $2,200 in outstanding borrowings with approximately $5,300 in additional availability under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility after giving effect to the borrowing base requirements.

Interest on outstanding borrowings under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility is payable at our option at either a floating base rate or a one-, two- or three-month LIBOR rate. We are also required to pay a commitment fee on the unused amount of the commitment under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility does not contain any financial covenants, but it does cross default to the Term Loan. Total costs associated with the Senior Revolving Credit Facility are approximately $700, which will be capitalized and amortized on a straight-line basis as part of interest expense over the term of the debt.

We entered into a credit and security agreement on April 30, 2012, pursuant to which a $15,150 term loan (the “Term Loan”) was provided.  Interest on outstanding amounts owed under the Term Loan is payable at the rate of 14% per annum in cash plus 2% per annum which will be paid by increasing the outstanding principal balance owed rather than being paid in cash on a current basis. Interest on outstanding amounts owed will be adjusted to 13% per annum (all payable in cash) if and when our adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is $10,000 or greater for a trailing 12-month period.

The outstanding balance of the Term Loan is due and payable in a single installment on April 30, 2016, subject to prepayment in specified circumstances, including sales or dispositions of assets outside the ordinary course of business and sales of equity or debt securities by Primo. The Term Loan is secured by substantially all of our assets on either a first priority or second priority basis. The first priority assets consist of substantially all of the assets related to our refill services business (See Note 8 – Segments). The security interest in all of our other assets is subordinate to the security interest securing the Senior Revolving Credit Facility.

The Term Loan contains the following financial covenants: (i) a limit on capital expenditures of $5,500 for the year ended December 31, 2012 and $12,000 for each year thereafter; (ii) an increasing minimum EBITDA threshold that is measured at the end of each quarter, (iii) a decreasing total debt to EBITDA ratio that is measured at the end of each quarter, and (iv) a requirement that the gross profit of our refill services business for the trailing 12-month period measured at the end of each quarter be no less than $10,500. Total costs associated with the Term Loan are approximately $800, which will be capitalized and amortized as part of interest expense over the term of the debt.
 
 
10


Concurrently with the closing of the Term Loan, five of our current directors or stockholders (the “Insider Participants”) purchased an aggregate of $1,150 in non-recourse, non-voting, last-out participation interests from the bank providing the Term Loan. These participation interests allow each holder to participate to the extent of such holder’s percentage share in the Term Loan and such participations are secured by the same assets as the Term Loan. The Insider Participants include Billy D. Prim, Malcolm McQuilkin and Jack C. Kilgore, all three of whom are current directors of Primo. Mr. Prim is also our Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. Mr. Prim, Mr. McQuilkin and Mr. Kilgore purchased $250, $500 and $50 in participation interests, respectively.

The Term Loan was accompanied by a detachable warrant to purchase 1,731 shares of our common stock, including detachable warrants to purchase 131 shares of our common stock received by the Insider Participants. The warrant is immediately exercisable at an exercise price of $2.30 per share and expires April 30, 2020. The terms of the warrants issued to the Insider Participants are identical to the terms of the warrant described above. Mr. Prim, Mr. McQuilkin and Mr. Kilgore were issued warrants to purchase 29, 57 and 6 shares of our common stock, respectively.  The estimated fair value of the warrants will result in an original issue discount on the Term Loan that will be amortized into interest expense through the maturity of the Term Loan.

On April 11, 2011, we completed the acquisition of certain intellectual property and other assets (the “Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business”) from Omnifrio Beverage Company, LLC (“Omnifrio”) for total consideration of up to $14,060, consisting of:  (i) a cash payment at closing of $2,000; (ii) the issuance at closing of 501 shares of our common stock; (iii) a cash payment of $2,000 on the 15-month anniversary of the closing date (subject to our setoff rights in the asset purchase agreement); (iv) up to $3,000 in cash milestone payments; and (v) the assumption of certain specified liabilities relating to the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business.  The milestone conditions have been renegotiated and we currently expect to make cash milestone payments of $559 and $2,000 during 2012 and 2013, respectively, and deferred purchase price payments of $1,000 and $1,000 during 2012 and 2013, respectively.  At March 31, 2012, $2,000 of the deferred purchase price and $559 of the milestone payments were included within accrued expenses and other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and $2,000 of the milestone payments were included within other long-term liabilities.

The Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business primarily consisted of technology related to single-serve cold carbonated beverage appliances and consumable flavor cups and CO2 cylinders used with the appliances to make a variety of cold beverages. The acquisition of the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business served as an entry point into the U.S. market for carbonated beverages and the rapidly growing self-carbonating appliance and single-serve beverage segments.

The Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business has been accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the acquisition method. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the business combination are recorded at fair value in accordance with U.S. GAAP based upon appraisals obtained from an unrelated third party valuation specialist. The purchase price was allocated primarily to identifiable intangible assets of $7,627, resulting in goodwill of $6,433, which is amortizable for tax purposes. The identifiable intangible assets consist of developed technology patents with estimated lives of 15 years.

Canada Exchange Business

On March 8, 2011, we completed the acquisition of certain assets of Culligan of Canada Ltd., related to its bulk water exchange business (the “Canada Exchange Business”).  The consideration given for the Canada Exchange Business was $4,796, which consisted of a cash payment of $1,576, the issuance of 307 shares of our common stock and the assumption of certain specified liabilities. The Canada Exchange Business provides refill and delivery of water in 18.9-liter containers to commercial retailers in Canada for resale to consumers.  The acquisition of the Canada Exchange Business expanded our existing exchange service offering and provided us with an immediate network of regional operators and major retailers in Canada with approximately 780 retail locations. Operations of the acquired entity are included in the consolidated statement of operations from the acquisition date.
 
The Canada Exchange Business has been accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the acquisition method.  Assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the business combination are recorded at fair value in accordance with U.S. GAAP based upon appraisals obtained from an unrelated third party valuation specialist.

  $ 85,256  
Effect of foreign currency translation
    303

5.
Stock-Based Compensation

We recorded non-cash expense related to our stock-based compensation plans of $411 and $188 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, all of which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses.

6.
Commitments and Contingencies
 
SDS Agreement

We entered into a strategic alliance agreement as well as cross licensing and distribution agreements (collectively “SDS Agreements”) with Sparkling Drink System Innovation Center S.r.l, its owner and RBAS Ltd Israel (collectively “SDS”) in November 2011 that was amended in January 2012.  The SDS Agreements provide that SDS will advise us on the strategic direction of our carbonated beverage business.  SDS manufactures carbonated beverage products, including appliances and accessories.  The SDS Agreements provide for the cross licensing and distribution of carbonated beverage products in certain territories.  SDS will market and distribute our Flavorstation products in certain countries within Europe and Africa over an initial term of two years, while we will market and distribute SDS products in North America over an initial term of five years.  The SDS Agreements include automatic one year extensions past the initial term.  The SDS Agreements contain minimum annual purchase commitments.  For each twelve month period following the date that the SDS products are available, which is estimated to be mid-2012, we must purchase at least $10,000 of SDS products.  During the same twelve month periods SDS must purchase at least $10,000 of our Flavorstation products.

In addition, as compensation for the advisory services SDS will receive cash compensation as well as a common stock purchase warrant (“SDS Warrant”), which we have already issued to SDS.  The SDS Warrant entitles SDS to purchase up to 100 shares of our common stock for a purchase price of $2.93 per share.  The shares issuable under the SDS Warrant vest as follows:  25% upon the signing of the SDS Agreements, with the remaining shares vesting contingently upon achievement of certain milestones based on net sales of carbonated beverage products within certain time periods, as set forth in the SDS Warrant, over the next three years.  The fair value of the unvested portion of the SDS Warrant will be determined at the time the milestones are achieved and such portion of the SDS Warrant vests.

Class Action Suit

On December 2, 2011, Primo, certain members of our board of directors, certain members of management, certain shareholders and company advisors were named as defendants in a purported class-action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.  The complaint alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, and Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933.  The complaint asserts claims on behalf of a class of persons who acquired our common stock in or traceable to our initial public offering and our secondary offering as well as purchasers of our common stock between November 4, 2010 and August 10, 2011.  The complaint alleges that defendants violated the federal securities laws by, among other things, making misrepresentations about our projected financial results and business operations in order to artificially inflate the price of our stock.  The complaint requests unspecified damages and costs.  We do not believe the lawsuit has merit and plan to vigorously contest and defend against it.  We are insured for potential losses subject to limits.  We are required to indemnify each of the named defendants that are party to the lawsuit against losses and expenses they incur in connection with the litigation.

Electrotemp

In December 2011, we filed a complaint against Electrotemp Technologies China, Inc. ("Electrotemp") alleging breach of contract and violation of warranty.  Electrotemp formerly manufactured and supplied us with water dispensers under a contract that provided a 100% warranty against defectives.  We are seeking damages of $3,100, which consists primarily of claims for defective water dispensers manufactured by Electrotemp of approximately $2,900 that are included in prepaid and other current assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Sales Tax

We routinely purchase equipment for use in operations from various vendors.  These purchases are subject to sales tax depending on the equipment type and local sales tax regulations, however, we believe certain vendors have not assessed the appropriate sales tax.  For purchases that are subject to sales tax in which we believe the vendor did not assess the appropriate amount, we accrue an estimate of the sales tax liability we ultimately expect to pay.

Other Contingencies

From time to time, we are involved in various claims and legal actions that arise in the normal course of business. Management believes that the outcome of such legal actions will not have a significant adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

7.
Income Taxes

We have incurred operating losses since inception. For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, there was an income tax provision of $527 and $190, respectively, resulting from recognition of a deferred tax liability related to tax deductible goodwill.

Section 382 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code imposes an annual limitation on the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that might be used to offset taxable income when a corporation has undergone significant changes in stock ownership. We believe our prior ownership changes have created an annual limit, imposed by Section 382, on the amount of net operating loss we can utilize in a given year, however, we believe the annual limit is such that we will be able to utilize our net operating loss carryforwards during their respective carryforward periods.

8.
Segments

At March 31, 2012, we had three operating segments and three reportable segments: Primo Water (“Water”), Primo Dispensers (“Dispensers”) and Primo Flavorsation (“Flavorstation”), which was previously reported in “Other.”

Our Water segment sales consist of the sale of multi-gallon purified bottled water (exchange services), which includes the Canada Exchange Business acquired in March 2011, and our self-serve filtered drinking water vending service (refill services) through retailers in each of the contiguous United States and Canada. Our Water services are offered through point of purchase display racks or self-serve filtered water vending displays and recycling centers that are prominently located at major retailers in space that is often underutilized.

Our Dispensers segment sells water dispensers that are designed to dispense Primo and other dispenser-compatible bottled water. Our Dispensers sales are primarily generated through major U.S. retailers and are sold primarily through a direct-import model, where we recognize revenues for the sale of the water dispensers when title is transferred to our retailer customers. We support retail sell-through with domestic inventory. We design, market and arrange for certification and inspection of our products.
 
 
13


In 2011, we added the Flavorstation segment, which includes the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business acquired in April 2011. This segment consists of sales of our Flavorstation products, which include home beverage appliances, flavor concentrates, CO2 cylinders and accessories.  Flavorstation financial activity began in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Our Flavorstation appliances were only sold to U.S. retailers in 2011, but we do expect international sales in 2012.  We recognize revenues for the sale of Flavorstation products when title is transferred to our retailer customers.

We evaluate the financial results of these segments focusing primarily on segment net sales and segment income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization (“segment income (loss) from operations”). We utilize segment net sales and segment income (loss) from operations because we believe they provide useful information for effectively allocating our resources between business segments, evaluating the health of our business segments based on metrics that management can actively influence and gauging our investments and our ability to service, incur or pay down debt.

Cost of sales for Water consists of costs for distribution, bottles and related packaging materials for our exchange services and servicing and material costs for our refill services. Cost of sales for Dispensers consists of contract manufacturing, freight and duties for our water dispensers.  Cost of sales for Flavorstation primarily consists of contract manufacturing, freight and duties for our carbonating beverage appliances.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for all segments consist primarily of personnel costs for sales, marketing, operations support and customer service, as well as other supporting costs for operating each segment.

Expenses not specifically related to operating segments are shown separately as Corporate. Corporate expenses are comprised mainly of compensation and other related expenses for corporate support, information systems, and human resources and administration. Corporate expenses also include certain professional fees and expenses and compensation of our Board of Directors.

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our historical consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. The discussion below contains forward-looking statements that are based upon our current expectations and are subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to inaccurate assumptions and known or unknown risks and uncertainties, including those identified in “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in this Item 2 and in “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Overview

Primo Water Corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Primo”, “we”, “our,” “us”) is a rapidly growing provider of three- and five-gallon purified bottled water, self-serve filtered drinking water, water dispensers and sparkling beverage appliances sold through major retailers in the United States and Canada. We believe the market for purified water is growing due to evolving taste preferences, perceived health benefits and concerns regarding the quality of municipal tap water. Our products provide an environmentally friendly, economical, convenient and healthy solution for consuming purified and filtered water.

Our business is designed to generate recurring demand for our purified bottled water or self-serve filtered drinking water through the sale of innovative water dispensers. This business strategy is commonly referred to as “razor-razorblade” because the initial sale of a product creates a base of users who frequently purchase complementary consumable products. We believe dispenser owners consume an average of 35 multi-gallon bottles of water annually. Once our bottled water is consumed using a water dispenser, empty bottles are exchanged at our recycling center displays, which provide a recycling ticket that offers a discount toward the purchase of a new bottle of Primo purified water (exchange) or they are refilled at a self-serve filtered drinking water location (refill). Each of our multi-gallon water bottles can be sanitized and reused up to 40 times before being taken out of use, crushed and recycled, substantially reducing landfill waste compared to consumption of equivalent volumes of single-serve bottled water. As of March 31, 2012, our dispensers and water services were offered in each of the contiguous United States and in Canada at approximately 24,100 combined retail locations, including Lowe’s Home Improvement, Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Albertsons, Winn Dixie, H-E-B Grocery and Walgreens.  In addition, the launch of Flavorsation is an extension of our overall razor/razorblade strategy, which we believe will result in the recurring demand of consumables such as flavors, CO2 cylinders, and accessories through the sale of our innovative carbonation appliances.

We provide major retailers throughout the United States and Canada with single-vendor solutions for water bottle exchange and refill vending services, addressing a market demand that we believe was previously unmet. Our solutions are easy for retailers to implement, require minimal management supervision and store-based labor, and provide centralized billing and detailed performance reports. Our exchange solution offers retailers attractive financial margins and the ability to optimize typically unused retail space with our displays.  Our refill solution provides filtered water through the installation and servicing of reverse osmosis water filtration systems in the back room of the retailer’s store location, which minimizes the usage of the customer’s retail space. The refill vending machine, which is typically accompanied by a sales display containing empty reusable bottles, is located within the retailer customer’s floor space. Additionally, due to the recurring nature of water consumption, retailers benefit from year-round customer traffic and highly predictable revenue.

Business Segments
 
At March 31, 2012, we had three operating segments and three reportable segments: Primo Water (“Water”), Primo Dispensers (“Dispensers”) and Primo Flavorstation (“Flavorstation”), which was previously reported in “Other.”

Our Water segment sales consist of the sale of multi-gallon purified bottled water (exchange services), which includes the Canada Exchange Business acquired in March 2011, and our self-serve filtered drinking water vending service (refill services) through retailers in each of the contiguous United States and Canada. Our Water services are offered through point of purchase display racks or self-serve filtered water vending displays and recycling centers that are prominently located at major retailers in space that is often underutilized.

Our Dispensers segment sells water dispensers that are designed to dispense Primo and other dispenser-compatible bottled water. Our Dispensers sales are primarily generated through major U.S. retailers and are sold primarily through a direct-import model, where we recognize revenues for the sale of the water dispensers when title is transferred to our retailer customers. We support retail sell-through with domestic inventory. We design, market and arrange for certification and inspection of our products.
 
 
16


In 2011, we added the Flavorstation segment, which includes the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business acquired in April 2011. This segment consists of sales of our Flavorstation products, which include home beverage appliances, flavor concentrates, CO2 cylinders and accessories.  Flavorstation financial activity began in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Our Flavorstation appliances were only sold to U.S. retailers in 2011, but we do expect international sales in 2012.  We recognize revenues for the sale of Flavorstation products when title is transferred to our retailer customers.

We evaluate the financial results of these segments focusing primarily on segment net sales and segment income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization (“segment income (loss) from operations”). We utilize segment net sales and segment income (loss) from operations because we believe they provide useful information for effectively allocating our resources between business segments, evaluating the health of our business segments based on metrics that management can actively influence and gauging our investments and our ability to service, incur or pay down debt.

Cost of sales for Water consists primarily of costs for distribution, bottles and related packaging materials for our exchange services and servicing and material costs for our refill services. Cost of sales for Dispensers and Flavorstation consist primarily of contract manufacturing, freight and duty costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for all segments consist primarily of personnel costs for operations support as well as other supporting costs for operating each segment.

Expenses not specifically related to operating segments are shown separately as Corporate. Corporate expenses are comprised mainly of compensation and other related expenses for corporate support, information systems, sales, marketing, and human resources and administration. Corporate expenses also include certain professional fees and expenses and compensation of our Board of Directors.

In this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, when we refer to “same-store unit growth” for our Water segment, we are comparing retail locations at which our services have been available for at least 12 months at the beginning of the relevant period.  In addition, “gross margin percentage” is defined as net sales less cost of sales, as a percentage of net sales.

Recent Transactions

Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business

On April 11, 2011, we completed the acquisition of certain intellectual property and other assets (the “Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business”) from Omnifrio Beverage Company, LLC (“Omnifrio”) for total consideration of up to $14.1 million, consisting of:  (i) a cash payment at closing of $2.0 million; (ii) the issuance at closing of 501,080 shares of our common stock; (iii) a cash payment of $2.0 million on the 15-month anniversary of the closing date (subject to our setoff rights in the asset purchase agreement); (iv) up to $3.0 million in cash milestone payments; and (v) the assumption of certain specified liabilities relating to the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business.  The milestone conditions have been renegotiated and we currently expect to make cash milestone payments of $0.6 million and $2.0 million during 2012 and 2013, respectively, and deferred purchase price payments of $1.0 million and $1.0 million during 2012 and 2013, respectively.  The Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business has been accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the acquisition method.

The Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business primarily consisted of technology related to single-serve cold carbonated beverage appliances and consumable flavor cups and CO2 cylinders used with the appliances to make a variety of cold beverages. The acquisition of the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business served as an entry point into the U.S. market for carbonated beverages and the rapidly growing self-carbonating appliance and single-serve beverage segments.

Canada Exchange Business

On March 8, 2011, we completed the acquisition of certain assets of Culligan of Canada Ltd., related to its bulk water exchange business (the “Canada Exchange Business”).  The consideration paid for the Canada Exchange Business was $4.8 million, which consisted of a cash payment of $1.6 million, the issuance of 307,217 shares of our common stock and the assumption of certain specified liabilities. The Canada Exchange Business provides refill and delivery of water in 18-liter containers to commercial retailers in Canada for resale to consumers.  The acquisition of the Canada Exchange Business expanded our existing exchange service offering and provided us with an immediate network of regional operators and major retailers in Canada with approximately 780 retail locations.  The Canada Exchange Business has been accounted for as a business combination in accordance with the acquisition method.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2011
 
Net Sales.  Net sales increased 15.4%, or $2.7 million, to $19.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $17.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The increase in net sales resulted from a $1.9 million increase in Water sales and a $0.8 million increase in Dispensers sales.
 
Water. Water net sales increased 13.9% to $15.0 million, representing 75.7% of our total net sales, for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Five-gallon equivalent units for Water increased 8.5% to 6.6 million units for the first quarter of 2011 from 6.1 million units in the same period of the prior year.  The increase in Water net sales was primarily due to a 31.1% increase in exchange sales, driven by a 22.7% increase in U.S. exchange sales that resulted from the new location growth and same-store unit growth of 5% in our exchange services for the first quarter of 2012 compared to the first quarter of 2011.
 
Water net sales included $0.8 million and $0.2 million in net sales and 214,000 and 57,000 five-gallon equivalent units attributable to the Canada Exchange Business, which was acquired in March 2011, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Dispensers. Dispensers net sales increased 20.9% to $4.8 million, representing 24.4% of our total net sales, for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase is due primarily to the increase in the number of retail locations offering our dispensers.  Our dispenser unit sales to retailers increased by 24.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the same period in the prior year.  Because of increased sales to a lower-margin customer, our unit sales increase was greater than the dollar value of the net sales increase.
 
Gross Margin Percentage. Our overall gross margin percentage decreased to 25.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 29.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.
 
Water. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales in our Water segment decreased to 34.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 36.6% for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in gross margin percentage for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to the increase in sales mix for lower-margin exchange services compared to refill services.  We currently anticipate that Water segment gross margin percentages will be between 34% and 37% for the remainder of 2012, exceeding the full-year 2011 gross margin percentage of 32.5%.
 
Dispensers. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales in our Dispensers segment decreased to 1.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 5.3% for the same period in the prior year.  The decrease in gross margin percentage is primarily due to increased sales to a lower-margin customer during the current period and, to a lesser extent, increased manufacturing costs for certain models.
 
 
19

 
Flavorstation. Our Flavorstation segment had a negative gross margin percentage for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as we had negligible net sales and $0.1 million of costs of sales primarily related to freight.  This is a non-seasonal period for Flavorstation and we expect a more significant level of sales for the second half of 2012.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (“SG&A”). SG&A increased 22.4% to $5.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $4.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A increased to 25.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 23.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The dollar increase in SG&A is primarily the result of increased compensation expense, including a $0.2 million increase in non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and $0.4 million in expenses related to the Flavorstation business, which began selling in the fourth quarter of 2011.  We currently expect that SG&A as a percentage of net sales for the remainder of 2012 will compare favorably with 2011 as we leverage costs with increased sales growth.
 
Water. SG&A for our Water segment decreased slightly and was unchanged on a rounded basis at $1.2 million for both the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  Water segment SG&A as a percentage of Water segment net sales decreased to 8.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to 9.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The decrease in Water segment SG&A is primarily a result of a reduction in duplicate costs related to the refill business acquisition, which occurred in November 2010. We expect to continue to leverage costs with sales growth.
 
Dispensers. SG&A for our Dispensers segment decreased 15.6% to $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  SG&A as a percentage of Dispensers segment net sales decreased to 11.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 15.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.
 
Flavorstation. SG&A for our Flavorstation segment was $0.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  Flavorstation SG&A was primarily related to product development, marketing and consulting expenses related to the Flavorstation business that launched in the fourth quarter of 2011.
 
Corporate. Corporate SG&A increased 30.0% to $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $2.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  Corporate SG&A as a percentage of consolidated net sales increased to 14.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from 12.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The increase in Corporate SG&A dollars is primarily from an increase in compensation and compensation-related expenses.  We currently expect Corporate SG&A as a percentage of consolidated net sales to decrease for the remainder of 2012 as we leverage expenses with sales growth.

Non-Recurring and Acquisition-Related Costs. Non-recurring and acquisition-related costs decreased to $26,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $0.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  Non-recurring and acquisition-related costs during 2011 consisted primarily of costs associated with the acquisitions of the refill business, the Canada Exchange Business and the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business.  We expect to incur non-recurring and acquisition-related costs of approximately $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2012.  This anticipated increase in non-recurring and acquisition-related costs over the three months ended June 30, 2012 is primarily related to employee severance costs associated with the elimination of duplicate management roles related to the refill services business and the restructuring and consolidation of Water operations.  We expect these changes to result in annual savings of approximately $2.0 million.

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization increased 35.1% to $2.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The increase is primarily due to depreciation on additional property and equipment and amortization for identifiable intangible assets, both related to our 2011 business acquisitions.

Interest Expense. Interest expense increased to $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The increase is primarily due to increased amortization of deferred loan costs as a result of the accelerated maturity of our Senior Revolving Credit Facility.  Interest expense related to deferred loan costs amortization increased to $0.7 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Adequacy of Capital Resources

Since our inception, we have financed our operations primarily through the sale of stock, the issuance of debt and borrowings under credit facilities. While we had no material commitments for capital expenditures as of March 31, 2012, we do anticipate capital expenditures to range between $4.0 million and $5.0 million for the remainder of 2012. Anticipated capital expenditures are related to our expected growth in Water locations and new Dispenser product lines and the continued development of our Flavorstation product lines. In addition, in connection with the acquisition the Omnifrio Single-Serve Beverage Business, we currently expect to make cash milestone payments of $0.6 million and $2.0 million during 2012 and 2013, respectively, and deferred purchase price payments of $1.0 million and $1.0 million during 2012 and 2013, respectively.

At March 31, 2012, our cash totaled $0.4 million and we had no availability under our prior senior revolving credit facility.  On April 30, 2012, we entered into a $20.0 million senior revolving credit facility (the “Senior Revolving Credit Facility”) and a $15.2 million term loan (the “Term Loan”) that replaced our prior senior credit facility.  At that date, we had $2.2 million in borrowings and approximately $5.3 million in additional availability under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility. This availability is subject to borrowing base requirements related to our eligible accounts receivable and inventory.

Our future capital requirements may vary materially from those now anticipated and will depend on many factors, including acquisitions of other businesses, the rate of growth in new locations and related display and rack costs, cost to develop new water dispensers and carbonating appliances, sales and marketing resources needed to further penetrate our markets, the expansion of our operations in the United States and Canada as well as the response of competitors to our solutions and products. Historically, we have experienced increases in our capital expenditures consistent with the growth in our operations and personnel, and we anticipate that our expenditures will continue to increase as we grow our business.

Our ability to satisfy our obligations or to fund planned capital expenditures will depend on our future performance, which to a certain extent is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other factors beyond our control.  We also believe that if we pursue any material acquisitions in the foreseeable future we will need to finance this activity through additional equity or debt financing.

Changes in Cash Flows

The following table shows the components of our cash flows for the periods presented (in millions):

   
Three Months Ended
March 31,
 
   
2012
   
2011
 
Net cash provided operating activities
  $ 0.9     $ 2.4  
Net cash used in investing activities
  $ (0.9 )   $ (4.5 )
Net cash provided by financing activities
  $ (0.3 )   $ 2.7  
 
Net Cash Flows from Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased to $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011.   The decrease in cash provided by operations was primarily related to a $1.1 million increase in cash used for working capital items.  In addition, the decrease in cash provided by operations was caused by an increase in our net loss, which was partially offset by non-cash adjustments.

Net Cash Flows from Investing Activities

Net cash used in investing activities decreased to $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, caused by decreases in cash used for business acquisitions and cash used for capital expenditures. During the first quarter of 2011, we completed the acquisition of the Canada Bulk Water Exchange Business, which included a cash payment of $1.6 million.
 
 
21


Our primary investing activities are typically capital expenditures for business acquisitions, property, equipment and bottles. Our capital expenditures are primarily for the installation of our recycle centers, display racks and reverse osmosis filtration systems at new Water locations. We also invest in the technology infrastructure needed to manage our national network.

Net Cash Flows from Financing Activities

Net cash used in financing activities was $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to cash provided by financing activities of $2.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, cash used in investing activities was primarily related to debt issuance costs.  During the first three months of 2011, cash provided by financing activities was primarily from the net borrowings under the senior revolving credit facility of $2.7 million.

Senior Revolving Credit Facility

We entered into the Senior Revolving Credit Facility on April 30, 2012 that replaced our prior senior credit facility.  The Senior Revolving Credit Facility provides for total borrowing availability of up to $20.0 million subject to borrowing base requirements related to our eligible accounts receivable and inventory and subject to a $2.0 million reserve requirement. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility has a three and one-half year term and is secured either on a first priority or second priority basis by substantially all of our assets. The term of the Senior Revolving Credit Facility may be extended up to April 30, 2017 so long as the maturity of the Term Loan (as defined below) is extended to at least October 30, 2017. At March 31, 2012, our outstanding balance under our prior senior revolving credit facility was $14.7 million and we had no additional availability.  At April 30, 2012, after our prior senior credit facility was paid in full, our outstanding balance under our Senior Revolving Credit Facility was $2.2 million and we had approximately $5.3 million in additional availability. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility does not contain any financial covenants, but it does cross default to the Term Loan.

Term Loan

We entered into a credit and security agreement on April 30, 2012, pursuant to which the $15.2 million Term Loan was provided.  The outstanding balance of the Term Loan is due and payable in a single installment on April 30, 2016, subject to prepayment in specified circumstances, including sales or dispositions of assets outside the ordinary course of business and sales of equity or debt securities by Primo. The Term Loan is secured by substantially all of our assets on either a first priority or second priority basis. The first priority assets consist of substantially all of the assets related to our refill services business. The security interest in all of our other assets is subordinate to the security interest securing the Senior Revolving Credit Facility.

The Term Loan contains the following financial covenants: (i) a limit on capital expenditures of $5.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 and $12.0 million for each year thereafter; (ii) an increasing minimum EBITDA threshold that is measured at the end of each quarter, (iii) a decreasing total debt to EBITDA ratio that is measured at the end of each quarter, and (iv) a requirement that the gross profit of our refill services business for the trailing 12-month period measured at the end of each quarter be no less than $10.5 million.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, investments in special purpose entities or undisclosed borrowings or debt. Additionally, we are not a party to any derivative contracts or synthetic leases.

Inflation

During the last three years, inflation and changing prices have not had a material effect on our business and we do not expect that inflation or changing prices will materially affect our business in the foreseeable future.

Seasonality; Fluctuations of Results

We have experienced and expect to continue to experience seasonal fluctuations in our sales and operating income. Our sales and operating income have been highest in the spring and summer and lowest in the fall and winter. Our Water segment, which generally enjoys higher margins than our Dispensers segment, experiences higher sales and operating income in the spring and summer. Our Dispensers segment had historically experienced higher sales and operating income in spring and summer; however, we believe the seasonality of this segment will be more dependent on retailer inventory management and purchasing cycles and not correlated to weather. Sustained periods of poor weather, particularly in the spring and summer, can negatively impact our sales in our higher margin Water segment. Accordingly, our results of operations in any quarter will not necessarily be indicative of the results that we may achieve for a year or any future quarter.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates from the information provided in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Presentation of Comprehensive Income

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance to amend the presentation of comprehensive income to allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both instances, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  The guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity.  In December 2011, the FASB issued guidance to indefinitely defer provisions requiring reclassification adjustments out of other comprehensive income to be presented on the face of the financial statements. The other portions of the original guidance remain unchanged.  These standards are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and are to be applied retrospectively.  We have included such disclosures within this quarterly report.


For quantitative and qualitative disclosures about our market risks, see Item 7A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.  Through March 31, 2012, there have been no material changes to our market risk since our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures


As of the end of the period covered by this report, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the chief executive officer (“CEO”) and chief financial officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)) pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) of the Exchange Act. Based on that evaluation, our management, including the CEO and CFO, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective for the purpose of providing reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) and 15d-15(d) of the Exchange Act that occurred during the period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION


Class Action Suit

On December 2, 2011, Primo, certain members of our board of directors, certain members of management, certain shareholders and company advisors were named as defendants in a purported class-action lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.  The complaint alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, and Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933.  The complaint asserts claims on behalf of a class of persons who acquired our common stock in or traceable to our initial public offering and our secondary offering as well as purchasers of our common stock between November 4, 2010 and August 10, 2011.  The complaint alleges that defendants violated the federal securities laws by, among other things, making misrepresentations about our projected financial results and business operations in order to artificially inflate the price of our stock.  The complaint requests unspecified damages and costs.  We do not believe the lawsuit has merit and plan to vigorously contest and defend against it.  We are insured for potential losses subject to limits.  We are required to indemnify each of the named defendants that are party to the lawsuit against losses and expenses they incur in connection with the litigation.

Electrotemp

On October 14, 2011, Primo, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, filed a complaint against Electrotemp Technologies China, Inc. ("Electrotemp") in Mecklenburg County (North Carolina) Superior Court, alleging breach of contract, quantum meruit/unjust enrichment, and violation of the North Carolina Products Liability Act/breach of implied warranty. Our claims arise out of Electrotemp's failure to credit us for defective water coolers manufactured by Electrotemp and sold by us which were returned by unsatisfied customers.  We are seeking approximately $3.1 million in damages from Electrotemp.  Electrotemp removed the action to the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina based on diversity of citizenship.  The parties filed a Joint Motion to Stay litigation so that they could proceed with mediation and arbitration pursuant to the dispute resolution clause in their agreement.  On May 1, 2012, the Court ordered that the litigation would be stayed once the parties formally enter into arbitration.


In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed under Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, as supplemented and updated by the discussion below. These factors could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations and capital position, and could cause our actual results to differ materially from our historical results or the results contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in this report.

Our results of operations could be adversely affected as a result of the impairment of goodwill or other intangibles.

When we acquire a business, we record an asset called “goodwill” equal to the excess amount we pay for the business, including liabilities assumed, over the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets of the business we acquire. In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), we must identify and value intangible assets that we acquire in business combinations, such as customer arrangements, customer relationships and non-compete agreements, that arise from contractual or other legal rights or that are capable of being separated or divided from the acquired entity and sold, transferred, licensed, rented or exchanged. The fair value of identified intangible assets is based upon an estimate of the future economic benefits expected to result from ownership, which represents the amount at which the assets could be bought or sold in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale.

U.S. GAAP provides that goodwill and other intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives not be amortized, but instead must be tested at least annually for impairment, and intangible assets that have finite useful lives should continue to be amortized over their useful lives. U.S. GAAP also provides specific guidance for testing goodwill and other non-amortized intangible assets for impairment. U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions to allocate goodwill to reporting units and to determine the fair value of reporting unit net assets and liabilities, including, among other things, an assessment of market conditions, projected cash flows, investment rates, cost of capital and growth rates, which could significantly impact the reported value of goodwill and other intangible assets. Fair value is determined using a combination of the discounted cash flow, market multiple and market capitalization valuation approaches. Absent any impairment indicators, we perform our impairment tests annually during the fourth quarter.
 
 
24


We review our intangible assets with definite lives for impairment when events or changes in business conditions indicate the carrying value of the assets may not be recoverable, as required by U.S. GAAP. An impairment of intangible assets with definite lives exists if the sum of the undiscounted estimated future cash flows expected is less than the carrying value of the assets. If this measurement indicates a possible impairment, we compare the estimated fair value of the asset to the net book value to measure the impairment charge, if any.

As of December 31, 2011, we performed an interim impairment test of our goodwill and other identifiable intangible assets due to events and changes in circumstances that indicated an impairment might have occurred. The factor deemed by management to have constituted a potential impairment triggering event was the decrease in our stock price relative to our book value. The analysis indicated that the fair values of each of our reporting units exceeded their respective carrying values. At that time, we also compared the aggregate estimated fair values of our reporting units from the impairment analysis to our overall market capitalization with appropriate consideration of a control premium.  Based on these analyses, we concluded that goodwill was not impaired.

We cannot predict the occurrence of certain future events that might adversely affect the reported value of goodwill and other intangible assets that totaled $105.6 million at March 31, 2012. Such events include our stock price continuing at a low price relative to our book value as well as strategic decisions made in response to economic and competitive conditions, the impact of the economic environment on our customer base, material negative changes in our relationships with material customers and other parties breaching their contractual obligations under non-compete agreements. Future impairments, if any, will be recognized as operating expenses.

Separation Agreement

On May 9, 2012, we entered into a Separation Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) with Michael S. Gunter, our Senior Vice President, Operations.  The Separation Agreement is effective May 15, 2012 (the “Departure Date”).

The Separation Agreement provides that for a period of nine months following the Departure Date (the “Severance Period”), Mr. Gunter will be eligible to receive severance payments per pay period equal to his prior base salary, less applicable taxes, withholdings and deductions.  The Separation Agreement provides that all of Mr. Gunter’s unvested restricted stock and unvested restricted stock unit awards will vest in full on the effective date of the Separation Agreement.  Any unvested portions of stock option awards will expire immediately and any vested portion of such awards will remain exercisable for 30 days following the effective date of the Separation Agreement.  In addition, Mr. Gunter will be eligible for (i) continued health insurance coverage or (ii) reimbursement for COBRA health care continuation premiums until the earlier of the date that Mr. Gunter becomes eligible for coverage under another group health plan or February 28, 2013.

These severance benefits are being paid or provided in exchange for Mr. Gunter’s agreement that he will provide transition support during the Severance period and his executing a release of claims against Primo.  Mr. Gunter will continue to receive the severance benefits only if he complies with certain restrictive covenants, including, without limitation, a covenant not to compete with Primo, covenants not to solicit Primo’s customers, clients, or employees, and a covenant protecting Primo’s confidential information.  Mr. Gunter has the unilateral right to terminate and revoke the Separation Agreement within 21 days of the signing date upon notice to Primo, which termination would render the Separation Agreement unenforceable, null and void.

The foregoing description of the Separation Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Separation Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.6 to this Form 10-Q and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

2012 Executive Incentive Plan

On May 7, 2012, we established a 2012 Executive Incentive Plan, which includes an opportunity for an award comprised of cash and/or equity for our officers at the level of vice president or above.  The 2012 Executive Incentive Plan provides for awards as follows:

 
·
Award issuance would be based on company and employee specific performance, as recommended by the CEO and as finally determined and approved by Compensation Committee in its sole discretion.  Company performance is based on achievement of $14.9 million in Adjusted EBITDA.

 
o
Target award levels are based on a percentage of base salary and position and achievement of the Adjusted EBITDA target as follows:

Target Adjusted
EBITDA:  $14.9M

·
Awards may be paid in cash, restricted stock/restricted stock units and/or options, in the discretion of the Compensation Committee.  Options would be valued using a Black-Scholes model.

 
·
“Adjusted EBITDA” for purposes of the 2012 Executive Incentive Plan will have the same definition as in our credit agreements.

 
·
Equity awards may be subject to additional conditions or vesting requirements, including continued periods of service beyond the performance period, in the discretion of the Compensation Committee.

 
o
We anticipate that equity awards would vest over three years.

2012 Value Creation Plan

On May 7, 2012, we established a Value Creation Plan, which includes an opportunity for awards comprised of cash and/or equity for our officers at the level of vice president or above, based on our hitting Adjusted EBITDA targets for fiscal 2013 and 2014. The Value Creation Plan provides for awards as follows:

 
·
Award issuance would be based on our achieving targets of $20.0 million in Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2013 and/or $25 million in Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2014.

 
o
If we achieve $20 million in Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2013 and $25 million in Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2014, an award would be paid for each year.

 
·
“Adjusted EBITDA” for purposes of the Value Creation Plan will have the same definition as in our credit agreements.

 
·
Achievement of an Adjusted EBITDA target would result in the creation of an incentive award bonus pool equal to 2.5% of our total market cap appreciation (excluding additional share issuances) measured from May 11, 2012 through the second trading day following public announcement of our financial results for the year for which the award is being made.
 
 
·
Allocation of the incentive award bonus pool among participants would be recommended by the CEO and determined and approved by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion.

 
·
Awards may be paid in cash or restricted stock, at the discretion of the Compensation Committee.
