EXPLANATORY NOTE

    This Amendment No. 1 to Form 10-Q (this “Amendment” or “Form 10-Q/A”) amends The Simply Good Foods Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020, which was originally filed with the SEC on January 7, 2021 (the “Original Filing”). See Note 2, Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements, in Part I, Item 1, Financial Statements, for additional information.

    On April 12, 2021, the SEC issued a statement (the “SEC Statement”) on the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”). The SEC Statement discussed certain features of warrants issued in SPAC transactions that may be common across many entities. Specifically, the SEC Statement focused in part on provisions in warrant agreements that provide for potential changes to the settlement amounts dependent upon the characteristics of the warrant holder. The SEC Statement indicated that, because the holder of a warrant is not an input into the pricing of a fixed-for-fixed option on equity shares, such provisions would preclude the warrant from being classified in equity and thus the warrant should be classified as a liability. Following consideration of the guidance in the SEC Statement, The Simply Good Foods Company (the “Company”) concluded that its private warrants (“Private Warrants”) should be classified as a liability and measured at fair value, with changes in fair value each period reported in earnings in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.

    On May 13, 2021, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, in consultation with management, concluded that the Company’s previously issued consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended August 29, 2020, August 31, 2019, and August 25, 2018, and for each of the Company’s previously issued unaudited interim quarterly financial statements for fiscal years 2020 and 2019 (the “Non-Reliance Period”), should no longer be relied upon. As such, the Company resolved to restate the consolidated financial statements for the Non-Reliance Period. See Note 2, Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements, in Part 1, Item 1, Financial Statements for additional information.

    The Company is filing this Amendment to amend and restate the previously issued financial statements for the Company’s first fiscal quarter of 2021 to correct the misapplication of the accounting for the Private Warrants. This Amendment also amends and restates the Company’s Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and other disclosures made in the Original Filing as appropriate to reflect the restatement of the relevant periods (the “Restatement”).

Effect of Restatement

    As a result of the Restatement, the Private Warrants are now reflected as a liability measured at fair value on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and the change in the fair value of this liability in each period is recognized as a gain or loss in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss).

    The effect of these adjustments on net income for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020 and November 30, 2019, was a gain of $20.5 million and a gain of $13.3 million, respectively. The adjustments increased total liabilities at November 28, 2020 by $73.2 million with a corresponding decrease to total stockholders’ equity.

    The restatement of the financial statements had no effect on the Company’s liquidity, cash, or cash equivalents, or cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities. See Note 2 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part I, Item 1, Financial Statements, of this Amendment for additional information on the restatement and the related financial statement effects.





Internal Control Considerations

    As previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended August 29, 2020, we identified a material weakness in our internal controls over financial reporting related to inaccurate accounting for warrants issued in connection with our initial public offerings and private placement. As a result of the material weakness, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of August 29, 2020. Management plans to implement changes to strengthen internal controls and to remediate the material weakness. For additional information, see Part I, Item 4, Controls and Procedures, of this Form 10-Q/A.

Items Amended in this Form 10-Q/A

The following sections in the Original Filing are amended and restated in the entirety in this Form 10-Q/A to reflect the restatement:

Part I - Item 1 - Financial Statements (Unaudited)
Part I - Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Part I - Item 4 - Controls and Procedures
Part II - Item 6 - Exhibits

    Our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have also provided new certifications as required by Sections 302 and 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 dated as of the filing date of this Form 10-Q/A. The certifications are included in this Form-10Q/A as Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, and 32.1.

    This Form 10-Q/A sets forth only those items from the Original Filing that have been modified and superseded to reflect the Restatement. Except as provided above, this Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original Filing. Accordingly, this Form 10-Q/A should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing and filings with the SEC subsequent to the date on which the Company filed the Original Filing with the SEC.

1. Nature of Operations and Principles of Consolidation
    The Simply Good Foods Company (“Simply Good Foods” or the “Company”) was formed by Conyers Park Acquisition Corp. (“Conyers Park”) on March 30, 2017. On April 10, 2017, Conyers Park and NCP-ATK Holdings, Inc., among others, entered into a definitive merger agreement (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which on July 7, 2017, Conyers Park merged into Simply Good Foods and as a result acquired the companies which conducted the Atkins® brand business (the “Acquisition of Atkins”). The common stock of Simply Good Foods is listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “SMPL.”

    On August 21, 2019, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Simply Good Foods USA, Inc., formerly known as Atkins Nutritionals, Inc., (“Simply Good USA”) entered into a Stock and Unit Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) to acquire Quest Nutrition, LLC (“Quest”), a healthy lifestyle food company (the “Acquisition of Quest”). On November 7, 2019, Simply Good USA completed the Acquisition of Quest, via Simply Good USA’s direct or indirect acquisition of 100% of the equity interests of Voyage Holdings, LLC (“Voyage Holdings”), and VMG Quest Blocker, Inc. (“Voyage Blocker” and, together with Voyage Holdings, the “Target Companies”) for a cash purchase price of approximately $1.0 billion (subject to customary adjustments for the Target Companies’ levels of cash, indebtedness, net working capital and transaction expenses as of the closing date).

    The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Simply Good Foods and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. Unless the context otherwise requires, “we,” “us,” “our” and the “Company” refer to Simply Good Foods and its subsidiaries.

    The Company maintains its accounting records on a 52/53-week fiscal year, ending on the last Saturday in August of each year.

Description of Business

    The Simply Good Foods Company is a consumer-packaged food and beverage company that aims to lead the nutritious snacking movement with trusted brands that offer a variety of convenient, innovative, great-tasting, better-for-you snacks and meal replacements. The Company’s nutritious snacking platform consists of the following core brands that specialize in providing products for consumers that follow certain nutritional philosophies, dietary approaches and/or health-and-wellness trends: Atkins® for those following a low-carb lifestyle; and Quest® for consumers seeking to partner with a brand that makes the foods they crave work for them, not against them, through a variety of protein-rich foods and beverages that also limit sugars and simple carbs. The Company distributes its products in major retail channels, primarily in North America, including grocery, club and mass merchandise, as well as through e-commerce, convenience, specialty and other channels. The Company’s portfolio of nutritious snacking brands gives it a strong platform with which to introduce new products, expand distribution, and attract new consumers to its products. The Company’s platform also positions it to continue to selectively pursue acquisition opportunities of brands in the nutritious snacking category.

Unaudited Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

    The interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes of the Company and its subsidiaries are unaudited. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments and disclosures which are, in the Company’s opinion, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the indicated periods. All such adjustments were of a normal and recurring nature unless otherwise disclosed. The year-end balance sheet data was derived from the audited financial statements and, in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q, certain information and footnote disclosures required by GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The results reported in these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be reported for the entire fiscal year and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended August 29, 2020, included in Amendment No. 1 to Form 10-K (“Form 10-K/A”) filed with the SEC on June 30, 2021. As discussed in Note 2, Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements, the condensed consolidated financial statements have been restated to reflect certain warrants as liabilities rather than equity.

    Additionally, based on the duration and severity of economic effects from the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic, including but not limited to stock market volatility, the potential for (i) continued increased rates of reported cases of COVID-19 (which has been referred to as a second wave), (ii) unexpected supply chain disruptions, (iii) changes to customer operations, (iv) continued or additional changes in consumer purchasing and consumption behavior beyond those evidenced to date, and (v) the closure of customer establishments, the Company remains uncertain of the ultimate effect COVID-19 could have on its business.

2. Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements

    On April 12, 2021, the SEC issued a statement (the “SEC Statement”) on the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies (“SPAC”). The SEC Statement discussed certain features of warrants issued in SPAC transactions that may be common across many entities. Specifically, the SEC Statement focused in part on provisions in warrant agreements that provide for potential changes to the settlement amounts dependent upon the characteristics of the warrant holder. The SEC Statement indicated that, because the holder of a warrant is not an input into the pricing of a fixed-for-fixed option on equity shares, such provisions would preclude the warrant from being classified in equity and thus the warrant should be classified as a liability. Following consideration of the guidance in the SEC statement, the Company concluded that its private warrants should be classified as a liability and measured at fair value at each reporting period, rather than as equity awards. Management concluded the effect of this error on the Company’s previously reported consolidated financial statements is material and, as such, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements as of November 28, 2020 and the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020, and accompanying notes thereto have been restated from the amounts previously reported to give effect to the correction of this error (the “Restatement”). Effects of the Restatement on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as of August 29, 2020, and the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss) for the thirteen weeks ended November 30, 2019, are presented in the Company’s Amendment No. 1 to Form 10-K (“Form 10-K/A”) for the fiscal year ended August 29, 2020 filed with the SEC on June 30, 2021. Additionally, see Note 13, Earnings Per Share, for restated earnings (loss) per share amounts.

    As a result of the Restatement, the Company’s private warrants (the “Private Warrants”) are now reflected as a liability measured at fair value on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and the change in the fair value of this liability in each period is recognized as a gain or loss in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss). The effect of the Restatement on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of November 28, 2020, and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss) and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020, are presented below. Regarding the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, the adjustments below to net income were offset by adjustments to non-cash operating activities within cash flow provided by operations. The Restatement had no effect on total net cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. The effect of the Restatement on the November 28, 2020 stockholders’ equity balances is presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders’ Equity below.

    Refer to Note 4, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Form 10-K/A for a description of significant accounting policies.

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

    In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which amends the existing guidance relating to the accounting for income taxes. This ASU is intended to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles of accounting for income taxes and to improve the consistent application of U.S. GAAP for other areas of accounting for income taxes by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effects adoption of this guidance will have on the consolidated financial statements and does not expect that the adoption of this ASU will be material to its consolidated financial statements.

    In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for reference rate reform on financial reporting. The amendments in this ASU are effective for all entities and can be applied to contract modifications due to rate reform and eligible existing and new hedging relationships entered into between March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. The amendments of this ASU should be applied on a prospective basis. The Company will continue to monitor the effects of rate reform, if any, on its contracts and the effects of adoption of this ASU through December 31, 2022. The Company does not anticipate the amendments in this ASU to be material to its consolidated financial statements.

    In October 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-10, Codification Improvements, which provides updates for technical corrections, clarifications to guidance, simplifications to wording or structure of guidance, and other minor improvements across various areas of accounting within U.S. GAAP. This ASU is effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The amendments of this ASU should be applied retrospectively. The Company is currently evaluating the effects adoption of this guidance will have on the consolidated financial statements and does not anticipate the adoption of this ASU will be material to its consolidated financial statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

    In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), which modified the measurement of expected credit losses of certain financial instruments. The Company adopted this ASU as of the first day of fiscal 2021. As a result of adopting this ASU, the Company changed its method of estimating its allowance for doubtful accounts for trade receivables to be based upon the Company’s historical credit loss experience adjusted for asset-specific risk characteristics, current economic conditions, and reasonable forecasts. The change in estimating the allowance for doubtful accounts did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

    In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), which modified disclosure requirements on fair value measurements of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820. The Company adopted this ASU as of the first day of fiscal 2021. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements or the related disclosures.

4. Business Combination

    On August 21, 2019, Simply Good USA entered into the Purchase Agreement with VMG Voyage Holdings, LLC, VMG Tax-Exempt II, L.P., Voyage Employee Holdings, LLC, and other sellers defined in the Purchase Agreement. On November 7, 2019, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Simply Good USA completed the Acquisition of Quest for a cash purchase price at closing of $988.9 million subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

    Simply Good USA acquired Quest as a part of the Company’s vision to lead the nutritious snacking movement with trusted brands that offer a variety of convenient, innovative, great-tasting, better-for-you snacks and meal replacements. Quest is a healthy lifestyle food company offering a variety of bars, cookies, chips, ready-to-drink shakes and pizzas that compete in many of the attractive, fast growing sub-segments within the nutritional snacking category.

    The Acquisition of Quest was funded by the Company through a combination of cash, equity and debt financing. Total consideration paid on the closing date was $988.9 million. Cash sources of funding included $195.3 million of cash on hand, net proceeds of approximately $350.0 million from an underwritten public offering of common stock, and $443.6 million in new term loan debt. In the third fiscal quarter of 2020, the Company received a post-closing release from escrow of approximately $2.1 million related to net working capital adjustments, resulting in a total net consideration paid of $986.8 million as of November 28, 2020.

    For the thirteen weeks ended November 30, 2019, Business transaction costs within the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income were $26.2 million, which included $14.5 million of transaction advisory fees related to the Acquisition of Quest, $3.2 million of banker commitment fees, $6.1 million of non-deferrable debt issuance costs related to the incremental term loan, and $2.4 million of other costs, including legal, due diligence, and accounting fees. Included in the transaction advisory fees was $12.0 million paid to Centerview Partners LLC, an investment banking firm that served as the lead financial advisor to the Company for this transaction. Three members of the Company’s Board of Directors, Messrs. Kilts, West, and Ratzan, have business relationships with certain partners of Centerview Partners LLC (including relating to Centerview Capital Consumer, a private equity firm and affiliate of Conyers Park Sponsor LLC), but they are not themselves partners, executives or employees of Centerview Partners LLC, and Centerview Partners LLC is not a related party of the Company pursuant to applicable rules and policies. The advisory fee paid to Centerview Partners LLC represented approximately 1.2% of the total cash purchase price paid by the Company on the closing date of the Acquisition of Quest. All transaction advisory fees relating to the Acquisition of Quest were approved by the Company’s Audit Committee.

    The following table sets forth the final purchase price allocation of the Acquisition of Quest to the estimated fair value of the net assets acquired at the date of acquisition, in thousands:

Total assets acquired and liabilities assumed$986,820 

(1) Property and equipment, net primarily consisted of leasehold improvements for the Quest headquarters of $6.9 million, furniture and fixtures of $2.2 million, and equipment of $0.7 million. The Quest headquarters lease ends in April 2029. The useful lives of the leasehold improvements, furniture and fixtures, and equipment are consistent with the Company’s accounting policies.
(2) Intangible assets were recorded at fair value consistent with ASC 820 as a result of the Acquisition of Quest. Intangible assets consisted of $750.0 million of indefinite brands and trademarks, $115.0 million of amortizable customer relationships, and $3.4 million of internally developed software. The useful lives of the intangible assets are disclosed in Note 6 of the consolidated financial statements. The fair value measurement of the assets and liabilities was based on significant inputs not observable in the market and thus represent Level 3 measurements within the fair value measurement hierarchy. Level 3 fair market values were determined using a variety of information, including estimated future cash flows and market comparable data and companies. The fair values of the intangible assets were estimated using inputs primarily from the income approach and the with/without method, which estimates the value using the cash flow impact in a hypothetical scenario where the customer relationships are not in place. The significant assumptions used in estimating the fair value of the intangible assets include the estimated life the asset will contribute to cash flows, profitability, and the estimated discount rate.
(3) Primarily as a result of the fair value attributable to the identifiable intangible assets, the deferred income tax liability was $10.8 million.
(4) Goodwill was recorded at fair value consistent with ASC 820 as a result of the Acquisition of Quest. Amounts recorded for goodwill created in an acquisition structured as a stock purchase for tax are generally not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. Amounts recorded for goodwill resulting in a tax basis step-up are generally expected to be deductible for tax purposes. Tax deductible Goodwill was estimated to be $67.7 million. Goodwill represents the future economic benefits arising from other assets acquired that could not be individually identified and separately recognized.

    Since the initial preliminary estimates reported in the first fiscal quarter of 2020, the Company has updated certain amounts reflected in the final purchase price allocation, as summarized in the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed as set forth above. Specifically, the carrying amount of the intangible assets, net were increased by $20.0 million as a result of valuation adjustments related to the Company’s finalization of tax attributes, which also resulted in a decrease to deferred income taxes of $3.2 million. Additionally, accounts receivable, net decreased $4.3 million and inventories increased $0.9 million due to fair value measurement period adjustments, and the carrying amount of property and equipment, net decreased by $0.5 million to reflect its estimated fair value. As a result of these adjustments and the change in total net consideration paid of approximately $2.1 million related to net working capital adjustments discussed above, goodwill has decreased $21.5 million. Measurement period adjustments were recognized in the reporting period in which the adjustments were determined and calculated as if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date.

    The results of Quest’s operations have been included in the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements since November 7, 2019, the date of acquisition. The following table provides net sales from the acquired Quest business included in the Company’s results:

(2)    Quest net sales are primarily in North America.

    Charges related to credit loss on accounts receivables from transactions with external customers totaled approximately $0.1 million for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020 and were nominal for the thirteen weeks ended November 30, 2019. As of November 28, 2020 and August 29, 2020, the allowance for doubtful accounts related to these accounts receivable was $0.6 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

6. Goodwill and Intangibles

Balance as of November 28, 2020$543,134 

    The change in Goodwill attributed to the acquisition of a business during the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020 was the result of measurement period adjustments made to finalize the acquisition method of accounting for the Acquisition of Quest as described in Note 4. Additionally, effective September 24, 2020, the Company sold the assets exclusively related to its SimplyProtein® brand of products for approximately $8.8 million of consideration, including cash of $5.8 million and a note receivable for $3.0 million, to a newly formed entity led by the Company’s former Canadian-based management team who had been responsible for this brand prior to the sale transaction (the “SimplyProtein Sale”). In addition to purchasing these assets, the buyer assumed certain liabilities related to the SimplyProtein brand’s business. There was no gain or loss recognized as a result of the SimplyProtein Sale. In conjunction with the SimplyProtein Sale, the Company disposed of $2.8 million of goodwill associated with the SimplyProtein business.

7. Long-Term Debt and Line of Credit

    On July 7, 2017, the Company entered into a credit agreement with Barclays Bank PLC and other parties (as amended to date, the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement provides for (i) a term facility of $200.0 million (“Term Facility”) with a seven year maturity and (ii) a revolving credit facility of up to $75.0 million (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) with a five year maturity. Substantially concurrent with the consummation of the Acquisition of Atkins, the full $200.0 million of the Term Facility (the “Term Loan”) was drawn. The interest rate per annum is based on either (i) a base rate equaling the higher of (a) the “prime rate”, (b) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50% and (c) the Euro-currency rate applicable for an interest period of one month plus 1.00% plus (x) 3.00% margin for the Term Loan or (y) 2.00% margin for the Revolving Credit Facility, or (ii) London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) adjusted for statutory reserve requirements, plus (x) 4.00% margin for the Term Loan subject to a floor of 1.00% or (y) 3.00% margin for the Revolving Credit Facility. As security for the payment or performance of its debt, the Company has pledged certain equity interests in its subsidiaries.

    On March 16, 2018 (the “Amendment Date”), the Company entered into an amendment (the “Repricing Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement. As a result of the Repricing Amendment, the interest rate on the Term Loan was reduced and, as of the Amendment Date, such loans had an interest rate equal to, at the Company’s option, either LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 3.50% or a base rate plus an applicable margin of 2.50%. The Repricing Amendment did not change the interest rate on the Revolving Credit Facility. The Revolving Credit Facility continued to bear interest based upon the Company’s consolidated net leverage ratio as of the last financial statements delivered to the administrative agent. No additional debt was incurred, or any proceeds received, by the Company in connection with the Repricing Amendment. The incremental fees paid to the administrative agent are reflected as additional debt discount and are amortized over the terms of the long-term financing agreements using the effective-interest method.

    On November 7, 2019, the Company entered into an amendment (the “Incremental Facility Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement to increase the principal borrowed on the Term Facility by $460.0 million. The Term Facility together with the incremental borrowing make up the Initial Term Loans (as defined in the Incremental Facility Amendment) and as of the Amendment No. 2 Effective Date (as defined in the Incremental Facility Amendment), the Initial Term Loans bear interest at a rate equal to, at the Company’s option, either LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 3.75% or a base rate plus an applicable margin of 2.75%. The Incremental Facility Amendment was executed to partially finance the Acquisition of Quest. No amounts under the Term Facility were repaid as a result of the execution of the Incremental Facility Amendment.

    The Credit Agreement contains certain financial and other covenants that limit the Company’s ability to, among other things, incur and/or undertake asset sales and other dispositions, liens, indebtedness, certain acquisitions and investments, consolidations, mergers, reorganizations and other fundamental changes, payment of dividends and other distributions to equity and warrant holders, and prepayments of material subordinated debt, in each case, subject to customary exceptions materially consistent with credit facilities of such type and size. The Revolving Credit Facility has a maximum total net leverage ratio equal to or less than 6.25:1.00 (with a reduction to 6.00:1.00 on and after the third anniversary of the closing date of the Credit Agreement) contingent on credit extensions in excess of 30% of the total amount of commitments available under the Revolving Credit Facility. Any failure to comply with the restrictions of the credit facilities may result in an event of default. The Company was in compliance with all financial covenants as of November 28, 2020 and August 29, 2020, respectively.

    Long-term debt consists of the following:

    The Company is not required to make principal payments on the Term Facility over the twelve months following the period ended November 28, 2020. Additionally, as of November 28, 2020 and August 29, 2020, there were no amounts drawn against the Revolving Credit Facility.

    As of November 28, 2020, the Company had letters of credit in the amount of $4.4 million outstanding. These letters of credit offset against the availability of the Revolving Credit Facility and exist to support three of the Company’s leased buildings and insurance programs relating to workers’ compensation. No amounts were drawn against these letters of credit at November 28, 2020.

    The Company utilizes market approaches to estimate the fair value of certain outstanding borrowings by discounting anticipated future cash flows derived from the contractual terms of the obligations and observable market interest and foreign exchange rates. The Company carries debt at historical cost and discloses fair value. As of November 28, 2020 and August 29, 2020, the book value of the

Company’s debt approximated fair value. The estimated fair value of the Term Loan is valued based on observable inputs and classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.

8. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

    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. To increase the comparability of fair value measurements, a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in the valuation methodologies, is as follows:

Level 1 – Valuations based on quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 – Valuations based on observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3 – Valuations based on unobservable inputs reflecting the Company’s own assumptions, consistent with reasonably available assumptions made by other market participants. These valuations require significant judgment.

    The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximated fair value as of November 28, 2020 and August 29, 2020 due to the relatively short maturity of these instruments.

Level 3 Measurements

    The Company has outstanding liability-classified Private Warrants that allow holders to purchase 6,700,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. Such Private Warrants are held by Conyers Park Sponsor, LLC, a related party. The Company utilizes the Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the fair value of the Private Warrants at each reporting date. The application of the Black-Scholes model utilizes significant assumptions, including volatility. Significant judgment is required in determining the expected volatility (the key assumption) of the Private Warrants. In order to determine the most accurate measure of this volatility, the Company measured expected volatility based on several inputs, including considering a peer group of publicly traded companies, the Company’s implied volatility based on traded options, the implied volatility of comparable SPAC warrants, and the implied volatility of any outstanding Public Warrants during the periods they were outstanding. As a result of the unobservable inputs that were used to determine the expected volatility of the Private Warrants, the fair value measurement of these warrants reflects a Level 3 measurement within the fair value measurement hierarchy.

There were 6,700,000 Private Warrants outstanding as of November 28, 2020 and November 30, 2019. The table below summarizes the inputs used to calculate the fair value of the warrant liability at each of the dates indicated below:

November 28, 2020November 30, 2019
Exercise Price$11.50 $11.50 
Stock Price$22.36 $27.63

Risk-Free Interest Rate0.14 %1.60 %
Expected Volatility25.60 %21.50 %
Per Share Value of Warrants$10.92 $16.61 

    The periodic remeasurement of the warrant liability is reflected in Gain in fair value change of warrant liability within the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income (Loss). The adjustments for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020 and November 30, 2019 were a gain of $20.5 million and a gain of $13.3 million, respectively. The adjustments resulted in a total warrant liability at November 28, 2020 and November 30, 2019 of $73.2 million and $111.3 million, respectively.

Provision (benefit) for income taxes$8,374 $(1,729)
Effective tax rate16.3 %(25.5)%

    The effective tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended November 28, 2020 was 41.8% greater than the effective tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended November 30, 2019, which was primarily driven by the non-cash change in the fair value of the warrant liability and other permanent differences.
