Basis of Presentation and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc., a Delaware corporation, together with its subsidiaries (“Red Robin” or the “Company”), primarily develops, operates, and franchises full-service restaurants in North America. As of October 6, 2019, the Company owned and operated 471 restaurants located in 38 states and two Canadian provinces. The Company also had 90 franchised full-service restaurants in 16 states as of October 6, 2019. The Company operates its business as one operating and one reportable segment.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Red Robin and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company’s financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. 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 and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of Red Robin have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements on Form 10-K have been condensed or omitted. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 30, 2018 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date, but does not include all disclosures required for audited annual financial statements. For further information, please refer to and read these interim condensed consolidated financial statements in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2018, filed with the SEC on February 27, 2019.
The Company’s quarter that ended October 6, 2019 is referred to as third quarter 2019, or the twelve weeks ended October 6, 2019; the second quarter ended July 14, 2019 is referred to as second quarter 2019, or the twelve weeks ended July 14, 2019; the first quarter ended April 21, 2019 is referred to as first quarter 2019, or the sixteen weeks ended April 21, 2019; and together, the first, second, and third quarters of 2019 are referred to as the forty weeks ended October 6, 2019. The Company’s quarter that ended October 7, 2018 is referred to as third quarter 2018, or the twelve weeks ended October 7, 2018; the second quarter ended July 15, 2018 is referred to as second quarter 2018, or the twelve weeks ended July 15, 2018; the first quarter ended April 22, 2018 is referred to as first quarter 2018, or the sixteen weeks ended April 22, 2018; and together, the first, second, and third quarters of 2018 are referred to as the forty weeks ended October 7, 2018. The Company’s fiscal year 2019 comprises 52 weeks and will end on December 29, 2019.
Certain amounts presented in prior periods have been reclassified to conform with the current period presentation. For the forty week period ended October 7, 2018, the Company reclassified gift card breakage of $2.2 million from Other, net to its own line item presented in the adjustments to reconcile net (loss) income to net cash provided by operating activities on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows. For the fiscal year ended December 30, 2018, the Company reclassified unfavorable lease rights of $1.4 million from Deferred rent to Other non-current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Management believes this presentation better reflects the nature of these liabilities subsequent to the adoption of Topic 842, as defined in Note 3, Leases.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (“Topic 326”), subsequently amended by various standard updates. This guidance replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information when determining credit loss estimates and requires financial assets to be measured net of expected credit losses at the time of initial recognition. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019 using a modified retrospective adoption method. Early adoption is permitted. The Company will adopt this guidance beginning with its fiscal first quarter 2020 and will apply it retrospectively at the beginning of the period of adoption through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings. We are evaluating the full impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.
We reviewed all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and concluded they were either not applicable or not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.
The entire disclosure for the general note to the financial statements for the reporting entity which may include, descriptions of the basis of presentation, business description, significant accounting policies, consolidations, reclassifications, new pronouncements not yet adopted and changes in accounting principles.
