Basis of Presentation — Effective January 31, 2016, Tailored Brands, Inc., a Texas corporation (“Tailored Brands”), became the successor reporting company to The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc. (“Men’s Wearhouse”), pursuant to a holding company reorganization (the “Reorganization”). Upon completion of the Reorganization, each issued and outstanding share of common stock of Men's Wearhouse was automatically converted into one share of common stock of Tailored Brands, having the same designations, preferences, limitations, and relative rights and corresponding obligations as the shares of common stock of Men's Wearhouse. In addition, as part of the Reorganization, Men's Wearhouse's treasury shares were canceled. The consolidated assets and liabilities of Tailored Brands and its subsidiaries immediately after the Reorganization were the same as the consolidated assets and liabilities of Men's Wearhouse immediately prior to the Reorganization.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements herein include the accounts of Tailored Brands, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) and have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).  As applicable under such regulations, certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted.  We believe the presentation and disclosures herein are adequate to make the information not misleading, and the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all elimination entries and normal recurring adjustments which are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows at the dates and for the periods presented. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

 

Our business results historically have fluctuated throughout the year and, as a result, the operating results of the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 30, 2016.

 

Unless the context otherwise requires, “Company”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Tailored Brands, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

 

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and related disclosures.  Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements — We have considered all new accounting pronouncements and have concluded there are no new pronouncements that may have a material impact on our results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows, based on current information, except for those listed below. 

 

In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation. ASU 2016-09 simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years with early adoption permitted. We will adopt ASU 2016-09 beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and we do not expect it will have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.  However, under certain circumstances, this guidance could have an impact on our effective tax rate as changes between tax and book treatment of equity compensation will be recognized in the provision for income taxes beginning in fiscal 2017.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases.  ASU 2016-02 increases transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements.  The main difference between previous U.S. GAAP and ASU 2016-02 is the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases under previous U.S. GAAP. ASU 2016-02 is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  Early adoption of ASU 2016-02 is permitted.  The guidance is required to be adopted using the modified retrospective approach.  We are currently evaluating the impact ASU 2016-02 will have on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows but expect that it will result in a significant increase in our long-term assets and liabilities given we have a significant number of leases.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, to clarify the principles used to recognize revenue for all entities.  In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14 which deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year.  As a result of this deferral, ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and early adoption is permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016.  The guidance allows for either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective transition method.  We are continuing to evaluate our method of adoption and the impact this guidance, including recent amendments and interpretations, may have on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
