NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(unaudited)

 

Note 1 — Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended January 1, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending July 1, 2012 due to seasonal and other factors.

 

The balance sheet information at July 3, 2011 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date, but does not include all information or notes necessary for a complete presentation.

 

Accordingly, the information in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 3, 2011.

 

References in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to “authoritative guidance” are to the Accounting Standards Codification issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

 

For the three and six months ended January 1, 2012 and December 26, 2010, the Company’s comprehensive income was as follows:

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-08 “Testing Goodwill for Impairment” (ASU No. 2011-08) which is intended to reduce the complexity and costs to test goodwill for impairment. The amendment allows an entity the option to make a qualitative evaluation about the likelihood of goodwill impairment to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. An entity will no longer be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on its qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. The ASU also expands upon the examples of events and circumstances that an entity should consider between annual impairment tests in determining whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. The amendment becomes effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for the Company’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-04 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (ASU No. 2011-05), which improves the comparability, consistency, and transparency of financial reporting and increases the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income (OCI) by eliminating the option to present components of OCI as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments in this standard require that all nonowner changes in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. Subsequently in December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-12, “Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income” (“ASU No. 2011-12”), which indefinitely defers the requirement in ASU No. 2011-05 to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification adjustments for items that are reclassified from OCI to net income in the statement(s) where the components of net income and the components of OCI are presented. The amendments in these standards do not change the items that must be reported in OCI, when an item of OCI must be reclassified to net income, or change the option for an entity to present components of OCI gross or net of the effect of income taxes. The amendments in ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and are to be applied retrospectively. The adoption of the provisions of ASU No. 2011-05 and ASU No. 2011-12 will not have a material impact on the company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations.

 

In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04 “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs” (ASU No. 2011-04). This standard results in a common requirement between the FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. ASU No. 2011-04 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU No. 2011-04 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain balances in the prior fiscal year have been reclassified to conform with the presentation in the current fiscal year.  On September 6, 2011, the Company, through its Winetasting Network subsidiary, completed the sale of certain assets of its wine fulfillment services business. Refer to Note 11-Discontinued Operations, for further discussion. Consequently, the Company has classified the results of operations of its wine fulfillment services business as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Basic net income per common share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed using the weighted-average number of common and dilutive common equivalent shares (consisting of employee stock options and unvested restricted stock awards) outstanding during the period.

Note 4 — Acquisitions and dispositions

 

Sale and franchise of Fannie May retail stores

 

On November 21, 2011, Fannie May Franchise LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fannie May Confections Brands, Inc., which in turn is a wholly-owned subsidiary of 1-800-Flowers.com, Inc., and GB Chocolates LLC (GB Chocolates) entered into an area development agreement whereby GB Chocolates will open a minimum of 45 new Fannie May franchise stores by December 2014.  The agreement provides exclusive development rights for several Midwestern states, as well as specific cities in Florida and Ohio. The terms of the agreement include a non-refundable area development fee of $0.9 million, store opening fees of $0.5 million, assuming successful opening of 45 stores, and a non-performance promissory note in the amount of $1.2 million, which becomes due and payable only if GB Chocolates does not open all 45 stores as set forth in the development agreement.  The Company has deferred the $0.9 million area development fee associated with the 45 store area development agreement, and will recognize such fees in income on a pro-rata basis, when the conditions for revenue recognition under the area development agreement is met. Both store opening fees and area development fees are generally recognized upon the opening of a franchise store, or upon termination of the agreement between the Company and the franchisee. The Company recognized approximately $0.2 million, of the $1.2 million promissory note, based upon its assessment of the likelihood that the performance criteria under the agreement will be achieved.

 

In addition to the 45 store area development agreement, the Company also sold 17 existing Fannie May stores, to be operated as franchised locations by GB Chocolates, for $5.6 million, recognizing a gain on the sale of $3.8 million.  Upon completion of the sale, the Company also recognized initial franchise fees associated with these 17 stores in the amount of $0.5 million.

 

Acquisition of Flowerama

 

On August 1, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of Flowerama of America, Inc. (Flowerama), a franchisor and operator of retail flower shops under the Flowerama trademark, with annual revenue of approximately $4.6 million and annual operating income of $0.1 million in its most recent year end prior to acquisition.  The purchase price, which included the acquisition of receivables, inventory, eight retail store locations and certain other assets and related liabilities, was approximately $4.3 million. The acquisition was financed utilizing available cash balances.  Of the acquired intangible assets, $1.9 million was assigned to amortizable investment in licenses, which is being amortized over the estimated useful life of 20 years, based upon the estimated remaining life of the franchise agreements.  Approximately $2.3 million of purchase price was assigned to goodwill which is not deductible for tax purposes.

Investment in Colonial Gifts Limited

 

On July 29, 2011, the Company purchased an equity investment in Colonial Gifts Limited (iflorist) in the amount of $1.2 million. Combined with prior purchases, the total equity investment, which the Company is accounting for under the cost method, in iflorist is $1.6 million. In addition, the Company has loaned iflorist $0.8 million through a senior secured debt financing at a rate of 7%. Iflorist, located in England, with revenue in its last fiscal year of approximately $7.0 million, is a direct-to-consumer marketer of floral and gift-related products sold and delivered throughout Europe, with wire-service operations within the same territory.

 

Acquisition of FineStationery

 

On May 10, 2011, the Company acquired selected assets of FineStationery Solutions, Inc. (Fine Stationery), a retailer of personalized stationery, invitations and announcements, with annual revenue of approximately $10.1 million and annual operating income of $0.4 million in its most recent year end prior to acquisition. The purchase price, which included the acquisition of inventory, production equipment and certain other assets, was approximately $3.3 million, including cash consideration of $2.8 million, plus additional consideration of $0.5 million based upon achieving specified operating results during fiscal 2012 through 2014, which is included in other liabilities in the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The acquisition was financed utilizing available cash balances.  Of the $1.7 million of acquired intangible assets, $1.6 million was assigned to trademarks that are not subject to amortization, while the remaining acquired intangibles of $0.1 million were allocated to customer related intangibles which are being amortized over the estimated useful life of 3 years. In addition, approximately $1.1 million of the purchase price was assigned to goodwill, which is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

 

Acquisition of Selected Assets of Mrs. Beasley’s

 

On March 9, 2011, the Company acquired selected assets of Mrs. Beasley’s Bakery, LLC (Mrs. Beasley’s), a baker and marketer of cakes, muffins and gourmet gift baskets for cash consideration of approximately $1.5 million, expanding the breadth of the Company’s baked goods and gourmet gift baskets product line. The acquisition included inventory and certain manufacturing equipment, which was consolidated within the Company’s baked goods manufacturing facilities. Approximately $0.6 million of the purchase price was assigned to tradenames that are not subject to amortization, while $0.3 million was assigned to goodwill which is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

 

The Company is in the process of finalizing its allocation of the purchase prices to individual assets acquired and liabilities assumed as a result of the acquisitions of Flowerama, Fine Stationery and Mrs. Beasley’s. This will result in potential adjustments to the carrying value of their respective recorded assets and liabilities, the establishment of certain additional intangible assets, revisions of useful lives of intangible assets, some of which will have indefinite lives not subject to amortization, and the determination of any residual amount that will be allocated to goodwill. The preliminary allocation of the purchase price included in the current period balance sheet is based on the best estimates of management and is subject to revision based on final determination of asset fair values and useful lives.

 

The following table summarizes the allocation of purchase price to the estimated fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of the acquisition of Flowerama, Fine Stationery and Mrs. Beasley’s:

Pro forma Results of Operation

 

The following unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information has been prepared as if the acquisitions of Flowerama, Fine Stationery and Mrs. Beasley’s had taken place at the beginning of fiscal year 2011. The pro forma information has been adjusted to give effect to items that are directly attributable to the transactions and are expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results. The adjustments primarily include amortization expense associated with acquired identifiable intangible assets. This information has not been adjusted to reflect any changes in the operations of the businesses subsequent to its acquisition by the Company. Changes in operations of the acquired businesses include, but are not limited to, discontinuation of products, integration of systems and personnel, changes in manufacturing processes or locations, and changes in marketing and advertising programs. Had any of these changes been implemented by the former managements of the businesses acquired prior to acquisition by us, the sales and net income information might have been materially different than the actual results achieved and from the pro forma information provided. The following unaudited pro forma information is not necessarily indicative of the results of operations in future periods or results that would have been achieved had the acquisitions taken place at the beginning of the periods presented.

(1)                On April 14, 2009, the Company amended its 2008 Credit Facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., as administrative agent, and a group of lenders (the “Amended 2008 Credit Facility”). The Amended 2008 Credit Facility provided for term loan debt of $92.4 million and a seasonally adjusted revolving credit line ranging from $75.0 to $125.0 million. The Amended 2008 Credit Facility, effective March 28, 2009, also revised certain financial and non-financial covenants.

 

On April 16, 2010, the Company entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “2010 Credit Facility”). The 2010 Credit Facility included a prepayment of approximately $12.1 million, comprised primarily of the proceeds from the sale of the Home & Children’s Gifts segment in January 2010, and thereby reducing the Company’s outstanding term loan under the facility to $60 million upon closing.  The term loan, which matures on March 30, 2014, is payable in sixteen quarterly installments of principal and interest beginning in June 2010, with escalating principal payments at the rate of 20% in year one, 25% in years two and three and 30% in year four.

 

In addition, the 2010 Credit Facility extended the Company’s revolving credit line through April 16, 2014, and reduced available borrowings from a seasonally adjusted limit which ranged from $75.0 million to $125.0 million to a seasonally adjusted limit ranging from $40.0 to $75.0 million. The 2010 Credit Facility also revised certain financial and non-financial covenants, including maintenance of certain financial ratios. The obligations of the Company and its subsidiaries under the 2010 Credit Facility are secured by liens on all personal property of the Company and its domestic subsidiaries.

 

Outstanding amounts under the 2010 Credit Facility bear interest at the Company’s option of either: (i) LIBOR plus a defined margin, or (ii) the agent bank’s prime rate plus a margin. The applicable margins for the Company’s term loans and revolving credit facility range from 3.00% to 3.75% for LIBOR loans and 2.00% to 2.75% for ABR loans with pricing based upon the Company’s leverage ratio.

 

The Company does not enter into derivative transactions for trading purposes, but rather to hedge its exposure to interest rate fluctuations. The Company manages its floating rate debt using interest rate swaps in order to reduce its exposure to the impact of changing interest rates on its consolidated results of operations and future cash outflows for interest.

In July 2009, the Company entered into a $45.0 million notional amount swap agreement that exchanges a variable interest rate (LIBOR) for a 1.92% fixed rate of interest over the term of the agreement. This swap matures on July 25, 2012. The Company has designated this swap as a cash flow hedge of the interest rate risk attributable to forecasted variable interest (LIBOR) payments. The effective portion of the after tax fair value gains or losses on this swap is included as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss.  The ineffective portion, if any, is recorded within interest expense in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

(2)              During March 2009, the Company obtained a $5.0 million equipment lease line of credit with a bank and a $5.0 million equipment lease line of credit with a vendor. Interest under these lines, which both mature in April 2012, range from 2.99% to 7.48%. Borrowings under the bank line are collateralized by the underlying equipment purchased, while the equipment lease line with the vendor is unsecured. The borrowings are payable in 36 monthly installments of principal and interest commencing in April 2009.

 

Note 8-Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company’s non-financial assets, such as definite-lived intangible assets, and property, plant and equipment, are recorded at cost and are assessed for impairment when impairment indicators are present.  Goodwill and indefinite lived intangibles are tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if impairment indicators are present, as required under the accounting standards.

 

Cash and cash equivalents, receivables, accounts payable and accrued expenses are reflected in the consolidated balance sheets at carrying value, which approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.  Although no trading market exists, the Company believes that the carrying amount of its debt approximates fair value.

 

The authoritative guidance for fair value measurements establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under the guidance are described below:

 

Level 1

 

Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the entity has the ability to access.

 

 

 

Level 2

 

Valuations based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

Level 3

 

Valuations based on inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

In accordance with the fair value hierarchy described above, the following table shows the fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap, which is included in other liabilities in the consolidated balance sheet.  The fair value is based on forward looking interest rate curves:

Note 9 — Income Taxes

 

At the end of each interim reporting period, the Company estimates its effective income tax rate expected to be applicable for the full year. This estimate is used in providing for income taxes on a year-to-date basis and may change in subsequent interim periods. The Company’s effective tax rate from continuing operations for the three and six months ended January 1, 2012 was 39.8% and 39.7%, respectively, compared to 43.1% and 41.6% in the prior year periods.  The effective rates for fiscal 2012 differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to state income taxes and other permanent non-deductible items, offset by various tax credits.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state jurisdictions. The Company has concluded its federal examination by the Internal Revenue Service for its fiscal years 2007 through 2009. Fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011 remain subject to federal examination. Due to non-conformity with the federal statute of limitations for assessment, certain states remain open from fiscal 2006. The Company does not believe there will be any material changes in its unrecognized tax positions over the next twelve months.

 

The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties accrued on any unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense. The Company does not have any material accrued interest or penalties associated with any unrecognized tax benefits, nor was any material interest expense recognized during the year.

 

Note 10 — Business Segments

 

The Company’s management reviews the results of the Company’s operations by the following three business categories:

 

·                  1-800-Flowers.com Consumer Floral,

·                  BloomNet Wire Service, and

·                  Gourmet Food and Gift Baskets

 

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company made the decision to divest its non-strategic wine fulfillment services business, which was previously included within its Gourmet Foods & Gift Baskets category.  On September 6, 2011, the Company completed the sale of this business; refer to “Discontinued Operations” below for a further discussion. Consequently, the Company has classified the results of operations of its wine fulfillment services business as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

(*) Category performance is measured based on contribution margin, which includes only the direct controllable revenue and operating expenses of the categories. As such, management’s measure of profitability for these categories does not include corporate overhead, which includes stock-based compensation, (see footnote (**) below), depreciation and amortization, other income and income taxes. Assets and liabilities are reviewed at the consolidated level by management and are not accounted for by category.

 

(**) The Company’s enterprise shared service cost centers include, among other items, Information Technology, Human Resources, Accounting and Finance, Legal, Executive and Customer Service Center functions.  In order to leverage the Company’s infrastructure, these functions are operated under a centralized management platform, providing support services throughout the organization. The costs of these functions, other than those of the Customer Service Center, which are allocated directly to the above categories based upon usage, are included within corporate expenses, which includes stock-based compensation, as they are not directly allocable to a specific category.

 

(***) Category contribution margin, during the three and six months ended January 1, 2012, includes a $3.8 million gain on the sale of Fannie May retail stores, which are being operated as franchised locations post-sale.

 

Note 11-Discontinued Operations

 

On September 6, 2011, the Company, through its subsidiary The Winetasting Network, completed the sale of certain assets of its wine fulfillment services business in order to focus on its core Direct-to-Consumer wine business. The sales price consisted of $12.0 million of cash proceeds at closing, with the potential for an additional $1.5 million upon achieving specified revenue targets during the two year period following the closing date.  The Company has classified the results of operations of its wine fulfillment services business, which had previously been included within its Gourmet Foods & Gift Baskets category, as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Note 12 — Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, the Company is subject to legal proceedings and claims arising in the ordinary course of business.

 

On November 10, 2010, a purported class action complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York naming the Company (along with Trilegiant Corporation, Inc., Affinion, Inc. and Chase Bank USA, N.A.) as defendants in an action purporting to assert claims against the Company alleging violations arising under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act among other statutes, and for breach of contract and unjust enrichment in connection with certain post-transaction marketing practices in which certain of the Company’s subsidiaries previously engaged in with certain third-party vendors.  Plaintiffs seek to have this case certified as a class action and seek restitution and other damages, all in an amount in excess of $5 million.  The Company intends to defend this action vigorously.

 

In 2009, the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation commenced an investigation of post-transaction marketing practices and the Company was one of many involved in that investigation. The Company fully complied with all requests from the committee. In addition, the Company received a civil investigative demand from the Attorney General of the State of New York regarding the same activities. The Company fully complied with that investigation, supplied the information sought and voluntarily entered into an Assurance of Discontinuance with the Attorney General’s Office in December 2010.  As part of the resolution of that matter, the Company paid the sum of $325,000 in January 2011 to a fund to be used for consumer education, consumer redress and costs and fees of the investigation.

 

There are no assurances that additional legal actions will not be instituted in connection with the Company’s former post-transaction marketing practices involving third party vendors nor can we predict the outcome of any such legal action. At this time, we are unable to estimate a possible loss or range of possible loss for the 2010 action for various reasons, including, among others: (i) the damages sought are indeterminate, (ii) the proceedings are in the very early stages and the court has not yet ruled as to whether the class will be certified, and (iii) there is uncertainty as to the outcome of pending motions.  As a result of the foregoing, we have determined that the amount of possible loss or range of loss is not reasonably estimable.  However, legal matters are inherently unpredictable and subject to significant uncertainties, some of which may be beyond our control.
