Nature of the business
Better Choice Company Inc. (the "Company") is a pet health and wellness company focused on providing pet products and services that help dogs and cats live healthier, happier and longer lives. The Company has a broad portfolio of pet health and wellness products for dogs and cats sold under its Halo brand across multiple forms, including foods, treats, toppers, dental products, chews and supplements. The products consist of kibble and canned dog and cat food, freeze-dried raw dog food and treats, vegan dog food and treats, oral care products and supplements.
Basis of presentation
The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial reports and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). Accordingly, the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2021 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Results of operations for interim periods may not be representative of results to be expected for the full year.
These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in the Company's Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021, filed with the SEC.
The condensed financial statements are presented on a consolidated basis and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of estimates
The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that the Company believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates these assumptions, judgments and estimates. Actual results may differ from these estimates.
In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the results of operations for the periods ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the financial position as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 and the cash flows for the periods ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.
Summary of significant accounting policies
For additional information, please refer to the most recently filed Annual Report regarding the Company's summary of significant accounting policies.
The Company charges advertising costs to expense as incurred and such charges are included in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses. The Company's advertising expenses consist primarily of online advertising, search costs, email advertising, and radio advertising. In addition, the Company reimburses its customers and third parties for in store activities and record these costs as advertising expenses. Advertising costs were $4.8 million and $10.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, of which $2.1 million is related to the amortization of the prepaid advertising contract with iHeart for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. Advertising costs were $2.9 million and $7.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, of which $0.9 million is related to the amortization of the prepaid advertising contract with iHeart for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. See "Note 4 - Prepaid expenses and other current assets" for additional information on the prepaid advertising contract with iHeart.
On May 10, 2022, the Company's board of directors approved a share repurchase program that authorizes the repurchase of up to $3.0 million of the Company's outstanding common stock in the open market through December 31, 2022. Repurchased shares are immediately retired and returned to unissued status. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022 no shares were repurchased.
New accounting standards
Issued but not yet adopted
ASU 2016-13 “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments”
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, a new standard to replace the incurred loss impairment methodology under current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. The standard is effective for the Company on January 1, 2023, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the standard, including subsequent updates, will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, but does not expect the guidance to have a significant impact on the financial statements.
