Adoption of ASC 842

Effective February 3, 2019, we adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), and all related amendments (“ASC 842”) using the modified retrospective approach.  As part of the adoption, we made the following elections:

We elected the package of practical expedients under which we did not reassess our prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs.
We elected to not separate lease and non-lease components for all leases.
We elected to exempt leases with an initial term of twelve months or less from balance sheet recognition.
We elected the land easement practical expedient under which we did not reassess whether existing land easements not accounted for as leases under previous guidance are or contain leases under ASC 842.
We did not elect the hindsight practical expedient for all leases.

In addition, in July 2018, the FASB approved an optional transition method that removed the requirement to restate prior period financial statements upon adoption of the standard with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings in the period of adoption and we elected to apply this transition method.  As a result, the comparative period information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for the period presented.  The adoption of ASC 842 had no impact to our previously reported results of operations or cash flows.

The following table depicts the cumulative effect of the changes made to our February 2, 2019 balance sheet for the adoption of ASC 842 effective on February 3, 2019 (in thousands):

The adoption of ASC 842 primarily resulted in the recognition of operating lease liabilities totaling $928.8 million, based upon the present value of the remaining minimum rental payments using discount rates as of the adoption date, with $183.7 million within current liabilities and $745.1 million in noncurrent liabilities.  In addition, we recorded corresponding right-of-use assets totaling $896.3 million based upon the operating lease liabilities adjusted for favorable lease intangible assets, previously included within intangible assets, net and deferred rent and unfavorable lease liabilities, previously included within deferred taxes, net and other liabilities.  In addition, we recorded a $0.4 million cumulative effect of initially applying ASC 842 as an adjustment to the opening balance of accumulated deficit.

Lease Information

We lease store locations, office and warehouse facilities, vehicles and equipment under various non-cancelable operating leases expiring in various years through 2032.  

Substantially all of our stores are leased, generally for five to ten year initial terms.  Certain store leases include one or more options to renew, with renewal terms that range from one to ten years.  Management uses its judgment to determine if a renewal option is reasonably certain of being exercised including consideration of the significant investment related to the identification, opening and operation of these store locations.  In addition, under our real estate leases, we pay costs such as real estate taxes and common area maintenance and certain of our lease agreements include rental payments based on a percentage of retail sales over contractual levels.  These costs are generally considered variable lease payments, and are recognized when deemed probable of payment. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.  In addition, we sublease certain real estate to third parties.  Amounts related to subleases were immaterial to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date.  Operating lease liabilities represent the present value of lease payments.  Operating lease right-of-use assets represent our right to use an underlying asset and are based upon the operating lease liabilities adjusted for prepayments or accrued lease payments, lease incentives and impairment of operating lease right-of-use assets.  To determine the present value of the lease payments, we estimated our incremental borrowing rate based on our current credit rating as well as comparisons to comparable borrowing rates of similarly-rated companies.
