Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Readers of this report should be aware of the speculative nature of “forward-looking statements.” Statements that are not historical in nature, including those that include the words “anticipate”, “estimate”, “plan”, “project”, “continuing”, “ongoing”, “target”, “aim”, “expect”, “believe”, “intend”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “could”, or the negative of those words and other comparable words, are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about, among other things, the industry and the markets in which Crumbs operates, and they are not guarantees of future performance. Whether actual results will conform to expectations and predictions is subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including risks and uncertainties discussed in this report; general economic, market, or business conditions, including real estate market conditions; changes in Crumbs’ competitive position or competitive actions by other companies; Crumbs’ ability to maintain strong relationships with its customers; disruptions in Crumbs’ supply chain; Crumbs’ ability to retain key personnel; Crumbs’ ability to achieve and/or manage growth; Crumbs’ ability to successfully implement new products and strategies; Crumbs’ ability to comply with government regulations; changes in laws or regulations or policies of federal and state regulators and agencies; and other circumstances beyond Crumbs’ control. Consequently, all of the forward-looking statements made in this report are qualified by these cautionary statements, and there can be no assurance that the actual results anticipated will be realized or, if substantially realized, will have the expected consequences on Crumbs’ business or operations. These and other risks are discussed in detail in the periodic reports that Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc. files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) (see Item 1A of Part II of this quarterly report for further information). Except as required by applicable laws, Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc. does not intend to publish updates or revisions of any forward-looking statements it makes to reflect new information, future events or otherwise. Readers should understand that it is not possible to predict or identify all risks and uncertainties to which Crumbs may be subject. Consequently, readers should not consider such disclosures to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties.

 

Unless the context clearly suggests otherwise, references in this quarterly report to “CBS” refers to Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc.; references to “Holdings” refers to Crumbs Holdings LLC; and references to “Crumbs” refers collectively to Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc., Holdings, and their subsidiaries.

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc. (“CBS”), formerly known as 57th Street General Acquisition Corp. (“57th Street”), Crumbs Holdings LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (“Holdings”) (together, the “Company”) as of June 30, 2012 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 have been prepared in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, as required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codifcation (“ASC”) Topic 270, “Interim Reporting,” and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and notes required for annual financial statements. In the opinion of management, such unaudited financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial information. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any future interim period or the year ending December 31, 2012. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in CBS’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

Reverse Merger

 

On January 9, 2011, CBS, 57th Street Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of 57th Street (“Merger Sub”), Holdings, a Delaware limited liability company, the members of Holdings immediately prior to the consummation of the Merger (individually, a “Member” or, collectively, the “Members”) and the representatives of the Members and Holdings, entered into a Business Combination Agreement, amended on each of February 18, 2011, March 17, 2011 and April 7, 2011 (the “Business Combination Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into Holdings with Holdings surviving the merger as a non-wholly owned subsidiary of CBS (the “Merger”). The entity surviving the Merger kept the Crumbs Holdings LLC name; however, references herein to the Members of Holdings refer only to the members of Crumbs Holdings LLC immediately prior to the consummation of the Merger, and therefore exclude the members of Merger Sub. The transactions contemplated by the consummation of the Merger and Business Combination Agreement are referred to herein collectively as the “Transaction.” Management has concluded that Holdings is the accounting acquirer based on its evaluation of the facts and circumstances of the acquisition.

 

Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, in February 2011, 57th Street commenced a tender offer, as amended from time to time, to ultimately purchase up to 1,803,607 shares of its issued and outstanding common stock for $9.98 per share, net to the seller in cash without interest, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, as supplemented by the Schedule TO, and the Third Amended and Restated Letter of Transmittal (which together, as amended or supplemented from time to time, constituted the “Offer”). The Offer expired at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, on May 4, 2011. 57th Street promptly purchased all 1,594,584 shares of its common stock validly tendered and not withdrawn, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $15,914,000.

 

Upon consummation of the Merger, the Members of Holdings received consideration in the form of newly issued securities and approximately $22,086,000 in cash. The securities consisted of (i) 4,541,394 New Class B Exchangeable Units (“Class B Units”) issued by Holdings (the aggregate of which is exchangeable for 4,541,394 shares of CBS common stock, and 641,394 of which Class B Units have been exchanged for shares of CBS common stock) and (ii) 454,139.4 shares of Series A Voting Preferred Stock (“Series A Voting Preferred Stock”) issued by CBS (each such share entitling its holder the right to vote 10 votes per share in all matters for which the holders of common stock are entitled to vote, and 64,139.4 of which have been surrendered and cancelled by CBS upon the exchange of 641,394 Class B Units for the 641,394 shares of common stock). In addition, Holdings, as the entity surviving the Merger, received, as a capital contribution from CBS, the sum of approximately $13,725,000 (not including refunds receivable after the closing of the Merger) after giving effect to the retention of approximately $53,000 by CBS for future public company expenses and the payment of approximately $149,000 for CBS’ then outstanding franchise taxes.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

1.Nature of business and summary of significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Nature of Business

 

The Company engages in the business of selling a wide variety of cupcakes, cakes, pies, cookies and other baked goods as well as hot and cold beverages. The Company offers these products through its stores, e-commerce division, catering services and wholesale distribution business.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of CBS and Holdings. Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Restricted Certificates of Deposit

 

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had $673,000 of cash restricted from withdrawal and held by banks as certificates of deposit securing letters of credit (see Note 3). The letters of credit are required as security deposits for certain of the Company’s non-cancellable store operating leases.

 

Tax Receivable Agreement

 

Holdings intends to make an election under Section 754 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code") effective for each taxable year in which an exchange of Class B Units for shares of CBS common stock occurs, which may result in an adjustment to the tax basis of the assets of Holdings at the time of an exchange of Class B Units. As a result of both the initial purchase of Class B Units from the Members in connection with the Merger and these subsequent exchanges, CBS will become entitled to a proportionate share of the existing tax basis of the assets of Holdings. In addition, the purchase of Class B Units and subsequent exchanges are expected to result in increases in the tax basis of the assets of Holdings that otherwise would not have been available. Both this proportionate share and these increases in tax basis may reduce the amount of tax that CBS would otherwise be required to pay in the future. These increases in tax basis may also decrease gains (or increase losses) on future dispositions of certain capital assets to the extent tax basis is allocated to those capital assets.

 

CBS entered into a tax receivable agreement with Holdings that will provide for the payment by CBS to the Members of up to 75% of the amount of the tax benefits, if any, that CBS is deemed to realize as a result of (i) the existing tax basis in the intangible assets of Holdings on the date of the Merger, (ii) these increases in tax basis and (iii) certain other tax benefits related to the Company entering into the tax receivable agreement, including tax benefits attributable to payments under the tax receivable agreement. These payment obligations are obligations of CBS and not of Holdings. On November 14, 2011, Julian Geiger became a party to the tax receivable agreement as part of the Geiger Employment Agreement (see Note 9). For purposes of the tax receivable agreement, the benefit deemed realized by CBS will be computed by comparing the actual income tax liability of Holdings (calculated with certain assumptions) to the amount of such taxes that CBS would have been required to pay had there been no increase to the tax basis of the assets of Holdings as a result of the purchase or exchanges, had there been no tax benefit from the tax basis in the intangible assets of Holdings on the date of the Merger and had CBS not entered into the tax receivable agreement. The term of the tax receivable agreement will continue until all such tax benefits have been utilized or expired, unless CBS exercises its right to terminate the tax receivable agreement for an amount based on the agreed payments remaining to be made under the agreement or CBS breaches any of its material obligations under the tax receivable agreement, in which case all obligations will generally be accelerated and due as if CBS had exercised its right to terminate the agreement.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist primarily of cash in banks, certificates of deposit and trade receivables. The carrying amounts for cash and cash equivalents, certificates of deposit and trade receivables approximate fair value due to the short term nature of the instruments.

1.Nature of business and summary of significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Restricted Stock

 

Compensation cost for restricted stock is measured using the market price of CBS’ common stock at the date the common stock is granted. The compensation cost is recognized over the period between the issue date and the date any restrictions lapse.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

The Company does not believe that the adoption of any recently issued accounting standards will have a material impact on its current financial position and results of operations.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to amounts previously reported for 2011 to conform with the 2012 presentation. Such reclassifications have no effect on previously reported net loss.

 

2.Inventories

 

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market, with cost being determined using the average cost method. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, inventories were comprised of the following:

 

   June 30, 2012   December 31, 2011 
Packaging inventory  $205,366   $186,688 
E-Commerce packaging inventory   180,551    165,629 
Merchandise inventory   22,799    27,663 
Beverage supply inventory   85,972    78,526 
Candy inventory   33,260    - 
Store supplies   37,004    44,502 
Total  $564,952   $503,008 

 

Packaging and e-commerce packaging inventories consists of labels, boxes, bags and gel packs for packaging and shipping baked goods, while merchandise inventory consists of logoed hats, t-shirts and aprons primarily used as employee uniforms, and mugs, books and plastic tiers for sale in the stores. Beverage supply inventory consists of coffee, tea and flavored syrups, and candy inventory primarily consists of bulk candy sold by weight. Store supplies consist of paper goods, decorating materials, and other miscellaneous supplies purchased in bulk and consumed in daily operations.

3.Letters of credit

 

In lieu of security deposits required pursuant to the terms of several operating leases, Holdings has chosen to obtain letters of credit issued by two financial institutions, when such substitution is allowed by the landlords. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, issued and unused letters of credit totaled $637,425. In May 2011, Holdings entered into a loan agreement in connection with the letters of credit issued by one of the institutions in the form of a $575,000 revolving line of credit, with a variable rate based on the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate. Prior to entering into this agreement, the letters of credit were guaranteed by a Member of Holdings. Letters of credit amounting to $539,425 were reserved under this line of credit as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. The line of credit is secured by a certificate of deposit, and no amounts were outstanding on the line of credit at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. Letters of credit in the amount of $98,000 issued by a second financial institution are also secured by certificates of deposit.

 

The certificates of deposit used to secure the letters of credit are recorded as restricted certificates of deposit in the balance sheet (see “Restricted Certificates of Deposit,” Note 1).

 

4.Income taxes

 

The Company files an income tax return in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and may file income tax returns in various states. Generally, the Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities since inception. The Company may be subject to potential examination by U.S. federal or states’ authorities in the areas of income taxes. These potential examinations may include questioning the timing and amount of deductions, the nexus of income among various tax jurisdictions and compliance with U.S. federal and state tax laws. The Company does not expect that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits, if any, will materially change over the next six months.

 

At the date of the Merger, the Company recorded a deferred tax asset of approximately $9,547,000 for estimated income tax effects of the increase in tax basis of the purchased interests and future projected payments under the tax receivable agreement. An additional deferred tax asset of approximately $35,000 was recorded in 2011 for estimated local income tax effects of the Company’s net loss for the year ended December 31, 2011. The Company had a net deferred tax asset of approximately $4,808,000 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, which can be utilized to offset future taxable income through 2026.

5.Intangible assets (continued)

 

Amortization expense was approximately $33,000 and $66,000, respectively, for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and was $33,000 and $65,000, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

 

Estimated amortization expense for the next five years, including the remainder of 2012, is:

 

December 31,  Amount 
2012  $66,000 
2013   99,000 
2014   27,000 
2015   14,000 
2016   2,000 

 

6.Related party

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the Company paid $0 and $4,500, respectively, in fees, unrelated to audit services, to an accounting firm of which an officer of the Company is a part owner. No similar payments have been made in 2012.

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company paid approximately $5,200 and $10,500, respectively, in rent to a landlord that is partially owned by an officer of the Company, compared to $5,200 and $10,000, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

 

7.Net loss per common share

 

The Company complies with accounting and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period and does not include the effect of any potentially dilutive common stock equivalents. Diluted net income (loss) per share is derived by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, adjusted for the dilutive effect of outstanding common stock equivalents. There is no dilutive effect on the net income (loss) per share during loss periods. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, warrants to purchase 5,456,300 shares of common stock were excluded from the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share because their effect would have been anti-dilutive. In addition, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, non-vested stock awards relating to 271,500 shares of common stock (see Note 8) were excluded from the calculation of diluted income (loss) per share because their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

 

8.Restricted stock

 

CBS maintains an equity incentive plan (the “Plan”) for the Company’s directors, officers and employees that provides for an aggregate of 1,038,295 shares of CBS’ common stock to be avabilable for awards, which may be in the form of incentive and nonqualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted shares of common stock, restricted stock units, stock bonus awards, and performance compensation awards. At the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of CBS in June 2012, the stockholders approved an amendment to the Plan to increase by 700,000, from 338,295 to 1,038,295, the number of shares of common stock that may be issued thereunder, which CBS intends to register during the third quarter of 2012. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, CBS granted 20,500 and 217,000 shares, respectively, of its common stock as restricted stock awards to eligible employees and 0 and 56,000 shares, respectively, to members of the Board of Directors. There were no shares of common stock granted during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, 1,500 shares of restricted stock awards were forfeited before completion of applicable vesting provisions. The total fair market value of the stock awards outstanding is approximately $996,000 based on a weighted average grant date fair value of $3.67 per share. The shares are subject to cliff vesting schedules which vary between one and three years.

Total stock-based compensation expense not yet recognized of approximately $834,000 as of June 30, 2012 has a weighted average period of 2.22 years over which the compensation expense is expected to be recognized. Compensation expense is amortized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Restricted stock grants are included in CBS’ total issued and outstanding common shares.

 

9.Stockholders’ equity

 

CBS is authorized to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock with such designations, voting and other rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. In connection with the Merger (see “Reverse Merger,” Note 1), the Members were issued 4,541,394 Class B Units and 454,139.4 Series A Voting Preferred Stock of CBS. Upon exchange of the Class B Units in accordance with the Exchange and Support Agreement, shares of CBS common stock will be issued at the current ratio of 1:1 (subject to certain adjustments related to organic dilution), and concurrently, a proportionate amount of shares of Series A Voting Preferred Stock will be automatically redeemed and cancelled at the current ratio of 1:10, subject to the availability of lawful funds, for its par value of $0.0001 per share and become authorized but unissued preferred stock. Except in connection with the exchange of the Class B Units, the CBS Series A Voting Preferred Stock will not be redeemable.

 

In June 2011, 641,394 Class B Units were exchanged for 641,394 shares of common stock, and in turn, 64,139.4 shares of Series A Voting Preferred Stock were automatically redeemed and cancelled pursuant to the Exchange and Support Agreement.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Introduction

 

The following discussion and analysis is intended as a review of significant factors affecting CBS’ financial condition and results of operations for the periods indicated. This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated financial statements and related notes presented in this report, as well as the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in CBS’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

CBS is a Delaware corporation organized in October 2009 under the name 57th Street General Acquisition Corp. (“57th Street”). 57th Street was organized as a blank check company for the purpose of acquiring, through a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, exchangeable share transaction or other similar business transaction, one or more operating businesses or assets. On January 9, 2011, 57th Street, 57th Street Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of 57th Street (“Merger Sub”), Holdings, the members of Holdings immediately prior to the consummation of the Merger (individually, a “Member” or, collectively, the “Members”) and the representatives of the Members and Holdings, entered into a Business Combination Agreement, amended on each of February 18, 2011, March 17, 2011 and April 7, 2011 (the “Business Combination Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub merged with and into Holdings with Holdings surviving the Merger as a non-wholly owned subsidiary of CBS (the “Merger”). Following the Merger, in October 2011, 57th Street changed its name to Crumbs Bake Shop, Inc. to reflect the nature of its business more accurately.

 

12
 

 

CBS, through its consolidated subsidiary, Holdings, a Delaware limited liability company, engages in the business of selling a wide variety of cupcakes, cakes, pies, cookies and other baked goods as well as hot and cold beverages under the trade name Crumbs Bake Shop. Cupcake sales have historically comprised the majority of Crumbs’ business. Crumbs believes its baked goods appeal to a wide demographic of customers who span a broad range of socio-economic classes. Crumbs operates in urban, suburban, commercial, and residential markets. More recently, it has expanded into transportation hubs, such as Union Station in Washington, D.C. and Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey, and mall-based centers, such as Queens Center in Elmhurst, New York.

 

As of June 30, 2012, there were 51 Crumbs Bake Shop stores operating in seven states and Washington, D.C., including 20 stores in Manhattan, New York. Of the total stores, 15 were opened in 2011. Crumbs’ sales are primarily conducted through its stores in New York, California, Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington, D.C and Massachusetts. A small percentage of baked goods sales are from Crumbs’ wholesale distribution business and catering services. Crumbs’ e-commerce division at http://www.crumbs.com ships cupcakes nationwide. In light of the decline in operating performance at a number of Crumbs’ stores, management continues to evaluate and, as necessary, address weaknesses and implement improvements in Crumbs’ operations and growth strategies as part of its efforts to maximize overall profitability and shareholder value.

 

Recent Developments

 

                On August 3, 2012, CBS entered into an agreement with Starbucks Corporation to bring Starbucks® brewed coffees, teas and espresso-based drinks to all Crumbs locations. This business relationship with Starbucks will make Crumbs the largest national retailer to be included in Starbucks’ We Proudly Serve program, which provides Starbucks-branded beverages, food, and other products to audiences outside of Starbucks’ company-operated retail stores. Starbucks beverages will first be made available at all Crumbs stores in the New York area beginning in September 2012, and will then be rolled out to all other Crumbs locations. Crumbs expects that the availability of Starbucks drinks in its stores will increase its beverage business and will increase demand of its baked goods. There can be no assurance, however, that this new relationship will have the impacts anticipated by management.

 

Results of Operations and Known Trends

 

Crumbs’ results of operations as a percentage of net sales and period-over-period variances are discussed in the following sections.

 

Net Loss

 

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, Crumbs recorded a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(0.76) million and $(1.29) million, respectively, or basic and diluted net loss per common share of $(0.14) and $(0.23), respectively, compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(0.30) million and $(0.26) million, respectively, or basic and diluted net loss per common share of $(0.06) and $(0.05), respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

 

Net Sales

 

Net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $11.08 million and $22.36 million, respectively, an increase of 7.7% and 11.7%, as compared to $10.29 million and $20.01 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The increases in net sales were attributable to additional store openings, offset by decreases in same store sales at a number of stores opened before 2011.

 

Net sales from Crumbs’ catering services, e-commerce division and wholesale distribution business for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $0.47 million and $0.94 million, respectively, a decrease of 23.0% and 26.0%, as compared to $0.61 million and $1.27 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The decreases were primarily attributable to decreases in net sales from Crumbs’ e-commerce division and wholesale distribution business.

 

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, cupcakes represented 77.2% and 77.7%, respectively, of net sales compared to 76.6% and 77.0%, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. Other baked goods sales from cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, muffins and assorted pastries for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 represented 10.4% and 10.6%, respectively, of net sales compared to 11.8% for both of the same periods in 2011. The stores also sell beverages, including drip coffees, espresso-based drinks, whole-leaf teas and hot chocolate. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, beverages represented 10.5% and 10.2%, respectively, of Crumbs’ net sales compared to 9.4% and 8.8%, respectively, for the same periods in 2011.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales is primarily comprised of products purchased for resale. Baked goods are delivered to stores daily by independent commercial bakeries. In each major market, Crumbs contracts with a commercial bakery to supply proprietary products to stores on an exclusive basis. As of June 30, 2012, Crumbs had relationships with one commercial bakery in each of New York, Los Angeles, Northern Virginia and Chicago. Beverage materials and packaging are purchased from both national and local suppliers. The e-commerce division utilizes a third party in New York for both shipping and handling.

 

13
 

 

Cost of sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $4.78 million and $9.54 million, respectively, a 9.9% and 13.2% increase, as compared to $4.35 million and $8.43 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The increases were primarily attributable to store openings that occurred in the second half of 2011, offset by decreases in costs at a majority of the stores opened prior to 2011. Cost of sales as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 43.1% and 42.7%, respectively, as compared to 42.3% and 42.1%, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The increases were primarily attributable to increases in promotional incentives.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Selling expenses include merchant account fees, fees paid to a public relations consultant, promotional displays, advertising, kosher certification fees and product promotional giveaways.

 

Selling expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $0.40 million and $0.69 million, respectively, a 9.1% and 15.9% decrease, as compared to $0.44 million and $0.82 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The decreases were due to reductions in public relations fees in 2012, reductions in kosher certification fees and the elimination of product giveaway expenses incurred in 2011 during investor presentations related to the Merger. Selling expenses as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 3.6% and 3.1%, respectively, as compared to 4.3% and 4.1%, respectively, for the same periods in 2011.

 

Staff expenses include salaries and wages for both store employees and corporate positions, guaranteed payments made prior to the Merger in 2011, employment taxes, medical insurance and workers compensation insurance.

 

Staff expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $3.35 million and $6.74 million, respectively, a 2.8% and 10.1% increase, as compared to $3.26 million and $6.12 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. The increases were attributable to the addition of corporate staff members and the addition of staff for new stores opened in the second half of 2011 and the first quarter of 2012. Staff expenses as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 30.2% and 30.1%, respectively, as compared to 31.7% and 30.6%, respectively, for the same periods in 2011.

 

Staff expenses of $2.23 million and $4.62 million were attributable to store staff for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of 0.9% and 8.2%, as compared to $2.21 million and $4.27 million for the same periods in 2011. Store staff expenses as a percentage of store net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 21.0% and 21.6%, respectively, as compared to 22.8% for both of the same periods in 2011.

 

Occupancy expenses are primarily attributable to Crumbs’ stores and corporate office leases. The original lease terms range from three to 15 years, many with options to extend to 20 years. Most lease agreements contain rent holidays, lease premiums, rent escalation clauses and/or contingent rent provisions, and many contain tenant improvement allowances. For scheduled rent escalation clauses during lease terms or for rent payments commencing at a date other than the date of initial occupancy, Crumbs records minimum rental expenses on a straight-line basis over the terms of the leases. This treatment causes a non-cash expense in the early years of these leases that reverses in the later years of the leases. Expenses related to the leases, such as real estate taxes, common area maintenance fees, insurance, advertising and commissions, are included in occupancy expenses. Other expenses, such as utilities, cleaning, licenses, maintenance, property and liability insurance are also included in occupancy expenses.

 

Occupancy expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $2.43 million and $4.79 million, respectively, a 42.1% and 46.5% increase, as compared to $1.71 million and $3.27 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. Occupancy expenses as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 21.9% and 21.4%, respectively, as compared to 16.6% and 16.3% for the same periods in 2011. Occupancy expense increases were primarily related to lease expenses associated with the opening of 16 additional stores over the past 12 months. Lease expenses incurred from the date of possession to the date a store opens are included in new store expenses, while lease expenses incurred after a store opens are included in occupancy expenses. Post-opening lease expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $1.93 million and $3.83 million, respectively, an increase of 46.2% and 50.8%, as compared to $1.32 million and $2.54 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011.

 

General and administrative expenses primarily include corporate expenses, such as public company operating expenses, office supplies, travel, professional fees and bank service charges. Also included are store expenses for miscellaneous supplies, uniforms and quality control.

 

General and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $0.84 million and $1.63 million, respectively, a 33.3% and 61.4% increase, as compared to $0.63 million and $1.01 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 7.6% and 7.3%, respectively, compared to 6.1% and 5.0% for the same periods in 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to public company costs and professional fees. 

 

New store expenses consist primarily of manager salaries, employee payroll and related training costs incurred prior to the opening of a store, straight-line rent from the possession date to store opening date, related occupancy costs incurred prior to opening and start-up and promotion of new store openings.

 

14
 

 

New store expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $0.07 million and $0.18 million, respectively, an increase of 40.0% and 63.6%, as compared to $0.05 million and $0.11 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. New store expenses as a percentage of net sales were 0.6% and 0.8%, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to 0.5% for both of the same periods in 2011. The increases were primarily attributable to costs associated with one store scheduled to open later this year.

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were $0.47 million and $0.92 million, respectively, an increase of 34.3% and 35.3%, as compared to $0.35 million and $0.68 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2011. Depreciation and amortization expenses as a percentage of net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 were 4.2% and 4.1%, respectively, as compared to 3.4% for both of the same periods in 2011. Depreciation and amortization expenses increased primarily as a result of new store additions in the second half of 2011 and the first quarter of 2012, including related lease review and negotiation fees.

 

General Economic Trends and Seasonality

 

Crumbs’ results of operations are generally affected by the economic trends in its market areas due to the dependence on its customers’ discretionary spending. Weakness in the national or regional economy in its market areas, combined with other factors including inflation, labor and healthcare costs and availability of suitable locations for its stores, may negatively impact its business. If consumer activities associated with the consumption of its products decline or the business activities of its corporate customers decrease, then its net sales and sales volumes may decline.

 

Crumbs’ results to date have not been significantly impacted by inflation.

 

While Crumbs’ business is not highly seasonal, it is impacted by weather. Extreme hot, cold and wet weather may cause decreased sales in the affected stores and could impact the daily delivery of its baked goods.

 

In addition, Crumbs’ sales peak throughout the year on certain holidays/events such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah. The timing of these holidays in a particular year could impact quarterly results.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As a result of the Merger in 2011, CBS contributed approximately $13.7 million to Holdings. Aside from this initial capitalization, Holdings’ primary source of liquidity has been, and is, cash from the sale of baked goods and beverages. Holdings’ primary uses of cash are cost of sales, operating expenses and capital expenditures, including expenditures associated with the construction and opening of new stores.

 

During the last six months, management has identified and instituted six key initiatives which it believes will improve the financial performance of the Company, bolster the image of the Crumbs brand, and position Crumbs to grow in a more predictable and profitable manner. These initiatives contemplate special attention being paid to corporate structure, supply chain management, identification of real estate opportunities relating to existing and new stores, the frequent introduction of new cupcakes, and a wide sweeping improvement in customer interaction. To implement these initiatives effectively and maximize the benefits that management believes will result from those initiatives, the decision has been made that it is necessary and desirable to accelerate the velocity of new store openings. This acceleration will require working capital in greater amounts and over a shorter period of time than contemplated under Crumbs’ recent growth strategy.

 

As of June 30, 2012, Crumbs had approximately $2.93 million in cash and other current assets, net of current liabilities, which could be used to fund working capital needs, compared to $4.74 million at December 31, 2011. Unless Crumbs can generate a significant increase in cash from sales, it will need to raise additional capital through public or private financings to fund management’s accelerated store growth strategy. Crumbs is currently consulting with nationally-recognized financial advisors for the purpose of investigating opportunities for raising the additional capital that management believes will be needed to fund Crumbs’ strategies for the remainder of 2012 and 2013.

 

Cash Flows

 

Crumbs’ net cash used in operating activities was $1.73 million and $1.05 million, respectively, during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The increase in operating cash outflows was primarily attributable to an increase in operating expenses disproportionate to the increase in sales for the period. The increase in cash outflows was partially offset by receivable collections and the usage of inventory and application of rent paid in prior periods.

Net cash used in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $1.09 million and $1.77 million, respectively. Investing cash outflows consisted primarily of costs related to three new stores, construction in progress related to two stores and corporate computer equipment purchases for the six months ended June 30, 2012. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, investing cash outflows consisted primarily of costs related to five new stores and construction in progress related to two stores.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Crumbs has no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on its financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenue or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

CBS’ critical accounting policies are identified and described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. CBS believes that there have been no changes in its critical accounting policies since they were last disclosed.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Crumbs has evaluated recent accounting pronouncements and does not believe the adoption of any recently issued accounting standards will have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

There were no material changes in the quantitative and qualitative information about market risk since the end of our most recent fiscal year.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

CBS maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in CBS’ reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), with the SEC, such as this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in those rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including CBS’ principal executive officer (“PEO”) and the principal accounting and financial officer (“PAO”), as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, a control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

An evaluation of the effectiveness of these disclosure controls as of June 30, 2012 was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of CBS’ management, including the PEO and the PAO. Based on that evaluation, management, including the PEO and the PAO, has concluded that its disclosure controls and procedures are, in fact, effective at the reasonable assurance level.

 

During the second quarter of 2012, there was no change in CBS’ internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, its internal control over financial reporting.

PART II

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

The risks and uncertainties to which Crumbs’ financial condition and results of operations are subject are discussed in detail in Item 1A of Part I of CBS’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Management does not believe that any material changes in these risk factors have occurred since they were last disclosed, except as follows:

 

Crumbs has limited working capital and may need to raise additional capital in the future. If Crumbs fails to obtain sufficient additional capital as and when needed, it may be unable to continue or expand its current level of operations and/or fully realize on its growth and business strategies.

 

Crumbs’ future capital needs will depend on various factors, such as market acceptance of its existing products and any new products that it develops, marketing and sales costs, its ability to reduce operating expenses, and the extent to which it implements its growth and business strategies. None of these factors can be predicted with any certainty.

 

Unless Crumbs can generate a significant increase in cash from sales, it will not have the financial resources needed to fully implement its growth and business strategies. In that case, Crumbs will need to raise additional capital through public or private financings. If Crumbs were to obtain additional capital through borrowings from third parties, then it would have to pay interest, it could be required to pledge its assets to secure such borrowings, and it could have to agree to financial or other restrictive covenants that would not be favorable to Crumbs. These factors could put a strain on working capital, restrict Crumbs’ operations and/or ability to fully implement its growth strategy, restrict Crumbs’ ability to raise additional capital in other financings, and/or restrict Crumbs’ ability to pay dividends on its outstanding securities. If CBS were to raise additional funds through the sale of equity securities, such as additional shares of common stock, then the ownership and financial interests of existing stockholders could be diluted or otherwise materially and adversely impacted. If CBS were to sell debt or preferred securities, then it might be required to pay regular dividends or make other distributions, which could put a strain on cash flow and reduce cash available for operations and growth. Moreover, any debt or preferred securities issued to secure additional capital could have rights, preferences and privileges that are senior to the rights, preferences and privileges of CBS’ existing securities. The amount of capital that could be raised through the sale of securities would depend on the price at which such securities can be sold, and there can be no assurance that CBS will be able to sell such securities at prevailing market prices. Furthermore, CBS’ ability to sell securities could be subject to, or limited by, the rules of the NASDAQ Stock Market, including the rule that requires stockholder approval of securities issuances under certain circumstances. A meeting of stockholders would delay CBS’ efforts to raise capital, which could impact the price or prices at which it is able to sell securities and, thus, the amount of capital that could be raised, and would require certain expenditures related to holding the meeting and soliciting proxies. Any of these factors could have a material and adverse impact on Crumbs’ results of operations and financial condition. Crumbs’ ability to raise additional capital will depend on its results of operations and the status of various capital markets at the time such additional capital is sought. As a result of the foregoing, there can be no assurance that capital will be available to Crumbs from any particular source or at all, or at the times, in the amounts or on terms that are acceptable to Crumbs. If Crumbs is unable to raise additional capital at the times or in the amounts needed or under acceptable terms, then it might have to delay, scale back or modify its accelerated growth strategy, and its operations could consume its current liquidity resources.
