Tampa, FL –Lazydays Holdings, Inc. (“Lazydays” or the “Company”) (NasdaqCM: LAZY) today announced in a Current Report on Form 8-K, that as a result of recent guidance provided by the SEC on April 12, 2021 (see Link) for all SPAC-related companies regarding the accounting and reporting for their warrants (the “SEC Statement”), it will restate its previously issued 2020 10-K filing including 2019 and 2020 consolidated financial statements.
Based on a technical analysis by the Company in consultation of third party advisors, the Company has determined that it is necessary to complete the restatement described below. This restatement is subject to audit by Marcum LLP, the Company’s independent auditors for the 2020 10-K.
The anticipated restatement pertains to the warrants issued in conjunction with the Private Investment in Public Equity (PIPE) transaction that occurred at the same time as the Company’s SPAC merger (“PIPE Warrants”) and Private Placement Warrants issued in connection with the IPO ( “Private SPAC Warrants”). Consistent with market practice among SPACs, we had been accounting for the warrants as equity under a fixed accounting model. However, based on the April 12 SEC Statement, we intend to restate historical financial statements such that the PIPE Warrants and Private SPAC Warrants are accounted for as liabilities and marked-to-market each reporting period (the “restatement”). In general, under the mark-to-market accounting model, as our stock price increases, the warrant liability increases, and we recognize additional non-operating expense in our income statement – with the opposite effect when our stock price declines. As of March 31, 2021, we have PIPE Warrants convertible to approximately 1.5 million shares of common stock outstanding, which represent approximately 58% of the PIPE Warrants originally issued and Private SPAC Warrants convertible to 155,000 shares of common stock outstanding which represents 100% of the Private SPAC Warrants originally issued.
The Company’s analysis indicates that the Public warrants issued in relation to the Company’s SPAC merger transaction (“Public SPAC Warrants”) are not impacted, and will continue to be accounted for as equity.
The Company anticipates the restatement will have no impact on its previously communicated revenue, gross profit, income from operations and net cash provided by operating activities, for 2018, 2019 or 2020. The Company further expects there to be no impact on previously reported adjusted EBITDA.
As a result of the restatement and the movements in our stock price since the SPAC merger transaction in March, 2018, we expect to recognize 2018 incremental non-operating income between $4.2 to $4.6 million, incremental 2019 non-operating income between $3.5 to $4.0 million, and 2020 incremental non-operating expense between $14.0 to $14.8 million. The anticipated impact in the first quarter of 2021 is a non-operating expense of between $6.0 and $6.5 million. There will be no impact to our previously reported net cash flow.
The following provides additional detail regarding how we currently anticipate the restatement will impact our various financial statements:
As previously mentioned, the Company’s analysis indicates that the Public SPAC Warrants are not impacted, and will continue to be accounted for as equity. If after audit and review it were determined that some or all of these additional SPAC warrants should also be accounted for as liabilities, the Company would make additional adjustment and restatements as necessary. Again, there would be no impact to our previously reported net cash flow.
These estimates are subject to change as management completes the restatement, and our independent registered public accounting firm has not audited or reviewed these estimates. As a result, the expected financial impact described above is preliminary and subject to change. Because the Company must complete restatements and file amendments to prior period 10-K filings prior to completing its first quarter, 2021 10-Q filing, the Company expects that the first quarter 10-Q filing will occur after the May 24 extended due date. The company cannot make a determination of expected disclosure dates until it completes an analysis of the scope and presentation of the restatements, in consultation with its auditors.
