Basis of Presentation and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc., a Delaware corporation, together with its subsidiaries (“Red Robin” or the “Company”), develops and operates casual-dining and fast-casual restaurants. As of July 12, 2015, the Company owned and operated 422 restaurants located in 38 states, the District of Columbia, and two Canadian provinces. The Company also had 99 franchised casual-dining restaurants in 15 states as of July 12, 2015. 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 and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. 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”). 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 28, 2014 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 28, 2014, filed with the SEC on February 20, 2015.
The Company’s quarter that ended July 12, 2015 is referred to as second quarter 2015, or the twelve weeks ended July 12, 2015; the first quarter ended April 19, 2015 is referred to as first quarter 2015, or the sixteen weeks ended April 19, 2015; and together the first and second quarters of 2015 are referred to as the twenty-eight weeks ended July 12, 2015. The Company’s quarter that ended July 13, 2014 is referred to as second quarter 2014, or the twelve weeks ended July 13, 2014; the first quarter ended April 20, 2014 is referred to as first quarter 2014, or the sixteen weeks ended April 20, 2014; and together the first and second quarters of 2014 are referred to as the twenty-eight weeks ended July 13, 2014.
Change in Accounting Estimate - Gift Card Breakage
During the first quarter 2015, the Company re-evaluated the estimated redemption pattern related to gift cards and aligned the recognition of gift card breakage revenue to the updated estimated redemption pattern. As a result, the Company recognized $1.4 million of additional gift card breakage revenue in the first quarter of 2015. Gift card breakage revenue is included in other revenue in the condensed consolidated statement of incomes. This change in accounting estimate increased net income by $0.9 million or $0.06 per diluted share.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In July 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance on the subsequent measurement of inventory, which changes the measurement from lower of cost or market to lower of cost and net realizable value. The guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and permits adoption in an earlier period. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements and the timing of adoption.
In April 2015, FASB issued guidance on the financial statement presentation of debt issuance costs. This guidance requires debt issuance costs to be presented in the balance sheet as a reduction of the related debt liability, rather than an asset. The guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and will only result in an immaterial change in presentation of these costs on our consolidated balance sheets.
In April 2015, the FASB issued guidance clarifying that if a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, the customer should account for the license consistent with its accounting for other software licenses. If the arrangement does not include a software license, the customer should account for the arrangement as a service contract. The guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
In May 2014, the FASB issued guidance outlining a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers. This guidance requires an entity to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Additionally, this guidance expands related disclosure requirements. In July 2015, the FASB approved a one-year deferral of the effective date of the new revenue standard. The guidance is now effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
