Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
 
NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Command Center, Inc. ("Command Center,” the “Company,” “we,” "us," or “our”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, for interim financial reporting and rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of our management, all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the fiscal periods presented have been included.
 
These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2018. The results of operations for the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full fiscal year or for any other fiscal period.
 
Hire Quest Merger: On July 15, 2019, Command Center completed its acquisition of Hire Quest Holdings, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, ("Hire Quest"), in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated April 8, 2019. Upon the closing of the Merger, all of the ownership interests in Hire Quest were converted into the right to receive an aggregate of 9,837,336 shares of the Company’s common stock. In connection with the Merger, the Company completed an issuer tender offer, pursuant to which it accepted for repurchase 1,394,821 shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $8.4 million, excluding fees and expenses .
 
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Hire Quest had the right to appoint four directors to the Board, and such directors were appointed in accordance with this agreement. Four of our prior directors submitted their resignations consistent with the terms of the Merger.
 
As a condition precedent to the Merger, the Company and its subsidiaries entered into a Loan Agreement with Branch Banking and Trust Company, or BB&T, for a $30 million line of credit, with a $15 million sublimit for letters of credit. The Company’s prior credit facility with Wells Fargo was paid off in full and terminated in connection with the Merger and a new letter of credit was issued  to the Company’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier by BB&T to replace the Wells Fargo letter. For additional information related to the transaction with Hire Quest, see  Note 10 – Subsequent Events .
 
Consolidation:  The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Command Center and all of our wholly-owned subsidiaries, but do not include the accounts of Hire Quest, as the closing of the Merger occurred after the end of the second quarter . All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
Use of estimates:   The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include the allowance for doubtful accounts, workers’ compensation risk pool deposits and related allowances, and workers’ compensation claims liability.
 
Concentrations:  At June 28, 2019, 14.4% of accounts receivable was due from a single customer and 72.7% of total accounts payable were due to two vendors. At December 28, 2018, 12.9% of total accounts receivable was due from a single customer and 27.4% of total accounts payable were due to two vendors.
 
Revenue recognition:  We account for revenue when both parties to the contract have approved the contract, the rights and obligations of the parties are identified, payment terms are identified, and collectability of consideration is probable. Our primary source of revenue is from providing temporary contract labor to our customers. Revenue is recognized at the time we satisfy our performance obligation. Our contracts have a single performance obligation, which is the transfer of services. Because our customers receive and consume the benefits of our services simultaneously, our performance obligations are typically satisfied when our services are provided. Revenue is reported net of customer credits, discounts, and taxes collected from customers that are remitted to taxing authorities. Our customers are invoiced every week and we do not require payment prior to the delivery of service. Substantially all of our contracts include payment terms of 30 days or less and are short-term in nature. Because of our payment terms with our customers, there are no significant contract assets or liabilities. We do not extend payment terms beyond one year.

Leases:  As of June 28, 2019, we leased facilities for our corporate headquarters and all of our branch locations. We have the right to direct, and obtain substantially all of the economic benefit, from the use of these facilities. We determine if an arrangement meets the definition of a lease at inception, at which time we also perform an analysis to determine whether the lease qualifies as operating or financing. Most of our branch leases have terms that extend over three to five years. Generally, these leases do not have a defined option to extend the term. In the instances where there is an option to extend, we assumed we would not exercise that option, and accordingly, did not recognize the option as part of our right-of-use asset or lease liability. Some of the leases have cancellation provisions that allow us to cancel with 90 days' notice and payment of a termination fee. Some of our leases have been in existence long enough that the term has expired and we are currently occupying the premises on month-to-month tenancies. 
 
Operating leases are included in right-of-use assets and lease current and long-term liabilities. Lease expense for operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term, and is included in selling, general and administrative expense. Some of our leases require variable payments of property taxes, insurance, and common area maintenance, in addition to base rent. The variable portion of these lease payments is not included in our right-of-use assets or lease liabilities. These variable payments are expensed when the obligation for those payments is incurred and are included in lease expense in selling, general and administrative expense.
 
Lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are measured using the present value of future minimum lease payments over the lease term at the lease commencement date. The right-of-use asset also includes any lease payments made on or before the commencement date of the lease, less any lease incentives received. We use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the lease commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The incremental borrowing rates used are estimated based on what we would be required to pay for a collateralized loan over a similar term.
 
Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts:   Accounts receivable are carried at their estimated recoverable amount, net of allowances. The allowance for doubtful accounts is determined based on historical write-off experience, age of receivable, other qualitative factors and extenuating circumstances, and current economic data and represents our best estimate of the amount of probable losses on our accounts receivable. The allowance for doubtful accounts is reviewed each period and past due balances are written-off when it is probable that the receivable will not be collected. Our allowance for doubtful accounts was approximately $125,000 and $113,000 at June 28, 2019 and December 28, 2018, respectively.
 
Recently adopted accounting pronouncements:   In February 2016, the FASB issued guidance on lease accounting. The new guidance continues to classify leases as either finance or operating, but results in the lessee recognizing most operating leases on the balance sheet as right-of-use assets and lease liabilities. This guidance was effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. In July 2018, the FASB amended the standard to provide transition relief for comparative reporting, allowing companies to adopt the provisions of the new standard using a modified retrospective transition method on the adoption date, with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings recorded on the date of adoption. We have elected to adopt the standard using the transition relief provided in the July amendment. In preparation for adoption of the standard, we have implemented internal controls to enable the preparation of financial information.
 
We have elected the three practical expedients allowed for implementation of the new standard, but have not utilized the hindsight practical expedient. Accordingly, we did not reassess: 1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases; 2) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases; 3) initial direct costs for any existing leases.
 
  
As a result of adopting this guidance, we recognized a right-of-use asset, and corresponding lease liability, of approximately $2.1 million as of the first day of our first fiscal quarter of 2019. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on expense recognition. The difference between the right-of-use assets and lease liabilities relates to the deferred rent liability balance as of the end of fiscal 2018 associated with the leases capitalized. The deferred rent liability, which was the difference between the straight-line lease expense and cash paid, reduced the right-of-use asset upon adoption.
 
In January 2017, the FASB issued guidance to simplify the subsequent measurement of goodwill by eliminating the requirement to perform a Step 2 impairment test to compute the implied fair value of goodwill. As a result, entities will only compare the fair value of a reporting unit to its carrying value (Step 1) and recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value; however, the loss recognized may not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. This amended guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. We early adopted this guidance for our fiscal 2018 annual impairment test. The adoption of the new standard did not have any impact to our consolidated financial statements.
 
Recently issued accounting pronouncements:   In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” The standard significantly changes how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that are not measured at fair value through net income. The standard will replace today's “incurred loss” approach with an “expected loss” model for instruments measured at amortized cost. For available-for-sale securities, entities will be required to record allowances rather than reduce the carrying amount, as they do today under the other-than-temporary impairment model. It also simplifies the accounting model for purchased credit-impaired debt securities and loans. This guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods therein. Early adoption is permitted for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods therein. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
 
Other accounting standards that have been issued by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.
 
NOTE 2 – EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, and does not include the impact of any potentially dilutive common stock equivalents. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in our earnings through the conversion of common shares issuable via outstanding stock options, except where their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. Outstanding common stock equivalents at June 28, 2019 and June 29, 2018 totaled approximately 161,000 and 202,000, respectively.
 
Diluted common shares outstanding were calculated using the treasury stock method and are as follows:

  NOTE 3 – ACCOUNT PURCHASE AGREEMENT & LINE OF CREDIT FACILITY
 
In May 2016, we signed an account purchase agreement with our lender, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A, which allows us to sell eligible accounts receivable for 90% of the invoiced amount on a full recourse basis up to the facility maximum of $14.0 million. When the receivable is paid by our customers, the remaining 10% is paid to us, less applicable fees and interest. Eligible accounts receivable are generally defined to include accounts that are not more than ninety days past due.
 
  
Pursuant to this agreement, we owed approximately $526,000 and $399,000 at June 28, 2019 and December 28, 2018, respectively. The current agreement bears interest at the Daily One Month London Interbank Offered Rate plus 2.50% per annum. At June 28, 2019, the effective interest rate was 4.90%. Interest is payable on the actual amount advanced. Additional charges include an annual facility fee equal to 0.50% of the facility threshold in place and lockbox fees. As collateral for repayment of any and all obligations, we granted Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. a security interest in all of our property including, but not limited to, accounts receivable, intangible assets, contract rights, deposit accounts, and other similar assets. The agreement requires that the sum of our unrestricted cash plus net accounts receivable must at all times be greater than the sum of the amount outstanding under the agreement plus accrued payroll and accrued payroll taxes. At June 28, 2019 and December 28, 2018, we were in compliance with this covenant. There was approximately $2,000 available to us under this agreement at June 28, 2019 and December 28, 2018.
 
At June 28, 2019, we had a letter of credit with Wells Fargo for approximately $6.2 million that secures our obligations to our workers’ compensation insurance carrier and reduces the amount available to us under the account purchase agreement. For additional information related to this letter of credit, see  Note 5 – Workers’ Compensation Insurance and Reserves .
 
Subsequent to June 28, 2019, the account purchase agreement with Wells Fargo was paid off and terminated in connections with the transaction with Hire Quest.

NOTE 5 – WORKERS' COMPENSATION INSURANCE AND RESERVES
 
In April 2014, we changed our workers’ compensation carrier to ACE American Insurance Company, or ACE, in all states in which we operate other than Washington and North Dakota. The ACE policy is a high deductible policy where we have primary responsibility for all claims. ACE provides insurance for covered losses and expenses in excess of $500,000 per incident. Our current ACE policy also includes a one-time obligation for the Company to pay any single claim within a policy year that exceeds $500,000 (if any), but only up to $750,000 for that claim. All other claims within the policy year are subject to the $500,000 deductible amount for the Company. Under this high deductible program, we are largely self-insured. Per our contractual agreements with ACE, we must provide a collateral deposit of approximately $6.2 million, which is accomplished through a letter of credit under our account purchase agreement with Wells Fargo. For workers’ compensation claims originating in Washington and North Dakota, we pay workers’ compensation insurance premiums and obtain full coverage under mandatory state administered programs. Our liability associated with claims in these jurisdictions is limited to the payment of premiums, which are based upon the amount of payroll paid within each particular state.
 
Accordingly, our consolidated financial statements reflect only the mandated workers’ compensation insurance premium liability for workers’ compensation claims in these jurisdictions.
 
As part of our high deductible workers’ compensation programs, our carriers require that we collateralize a portion of our future workers’ compensation obligations in order to secure future payments made on our behalf. This collateral is typically in the form of cash and cash equivalents. At June 28, 2019, our cash and non-cash collateral totaled approximately $6.2 million consisting of a letter of credit.
 
Workers’ compensation expense for our field team members is recorded as a component of our cost of services and consists of the following components: changes in our self-insurance reserves as determined by our third-party actuary, actual claims paid, insurance premiums and administrative fees paid to our workers’ compensation carrier(s), and premiums paid to mandatory state administered programs. Workers’ compensation expense for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019 was approximately $723,000 and $1.4 million, respectively. Workers’ compensation expense for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2018 was approximately $869,000 and $1.9 million, respectively.
 
NOTE 6 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
 
Issuance of Common Stock:  In 2018, we issued approximately 11,000 shares of common stock valued at approximately $62,000 for services.
 
Stock Repurchase:   In September 2017, our Board of Directors authorized a $5.0 million three-year repurchase plan of our common stock. This plan replaced the previous repurchase plan, which was put in place in April 2015. During the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2019, we purchased approximately 4,000 shares of common stock at an aggregate cost of approximately $15,000 resulting in an average price of $3.97 per share. These shares were subsequently retired.
 
In April 2019, we suspended purchases under this plan and we are not currently repurchasing our common stock.
 
Tender Offer:   Pursuant to the Merger Agreement with Hire Quest, on June 26, 2019, we commenced a self-tender offer to purchase up to 1,500,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $6.00 per share. The offer expired on July 25, 2019 and we accepted for repurchase 1,394,821 shares of common stock. See  Note 10 – Subsequent Events  for a more complete description.
 
NOTE 7 – STOCK BASED COMPENSATION
 
Employee Stock Incentive Plan:   Our 2008 Stock Incentive Plan, which permitted the grant of up to 533,333 equity awards, expired in January 2016. Outstanding awards continue to remain in effect according to the terms of the plan and the award documents. In November 2016, our stockholders approved the  Command Center, Inc. 2016 Stock Incentive Plan  under which our Compensation Committee is authorized to issue awards for up to 500,000 shares of our common stock over the 10 year life of the plan. Pursuant to awards under these plans, there were approximately 94,000 and 76,000 stock options vested at June 28, 2019 and December 28, 2018, respectively.

In July 2018, our Board of Directors authorized a restricted stock grant of approximately 48,000 shares, valued at $300,000, to our six non-employee directors. These shares were scheduled to vest in equal installments at each grant date anniversary over the next two years, but became fully vested at the completion of the Hire Quest Merger.
 
At June 28, 2019, there was unrecognized stock-based compensation expense totaling approximately $270,000 relating to non-vested options and restricted stock grants that will be recognized over the next two years. Certain non-vested stock options and restricted stock grants vested upon completion of the Hire Quest Merger which will result in the recognition all remaining, unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to these certain stock options and restricted stock grants at the closing date of the Merger.
 
  
NOTE 8 – INCOME TAX
 
Income tax expense during interim periods is based on applying an estimated annual effective income tax rate to year-to-date income, plus any significant unusual or infrequently occurring items which are recorded in the interim period.  The provision for income taxes for the interim periods differs from the amount that would be provided by applying the statutory U.S. federal income tax rate to pre-tax income primarily because of state income taxes. The computation of the annual estimated effective tax rate at each interim period requires certain estimates and significant judgment including, but not limited to, the expected operating income for the year and changes in tax law and tax rates.  The accounting estimates used to compute the provision for income taxes may change as new events occur, more experience is obtained, additional information becomes known, or as the tax environment changes.
 
Pursuant to Treasury Regulations, amounts paid to facilitate a business Merger or acquisition are not deductible for income tax purposes, which caused our effective income tax rate to be higher in 2019 than normal. 
 
NOTE 9 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
Freestone Insurance Company Liquidation : From July 2008 through April 2011, our workers’ compensation coverage was provided under an agreement with AMS Staff Leasing II, or AMS, through a master policy with Freestone Insurance Company, or Freestone. During this time period, we deposited approximately $500,000 with an affiliate of Freestone for collateral related to the coverage through AMS.
 
From April 2012 through March 2014, our workers’ compensation insurance coverage was provided by Dallas National Insurance, who later changed its corporate name to Freestone Insurance Company. Under the terms of the policies, we were required to provide cash collateral of $900,000 per year, for a total of $1.8 million, as a non-depleting deposit to secure our obligation up to the deductible amount.
 
In April 2014, the Insurance Commissioner of the State of Delaware placed Freestone in receivership due to concerns about its financial condition. In August 2014, the receivership was converted to a liquidation proceeding. In late 2015, we filed timely proofs of claim with the receiver. One proof of claim is filed as a priority claim seeking return of the full amount of our collateral deposits. The other proof of claim is a general claim covering non-collateral items. If it is ultimately determined that our claim is not a priority claim, or if there are insufficient assets in the liquidation to satisfy the priority claims, we may not receive any or all of our collateral.
 
During the second quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016, it became apparent that there was significant uncertainty related to the collectability of the $500,000 deposit with AMS related to our insurance coverage from July 2008 through April 2011. Because of this, we recorded a reserve of $250,000 in each of those quarters, fully reserving this deposit.
 
In conjunction with management, board, and audit committee changes in 2018, we have reviewed the estimated costs and potential benefits of pursuing priority claimant status in the liquidation proceeding and have altered our planned long-term strategy.  Given that Freestone has negative equity, the complexity of this matter, our experience to date, and the amount of time this matter has remained unresolved, we believe the continuation of our efforts to achieve priority status will not necessarily prove cost-effective.  While we will continue to seek priority status, we have determined that our stockholders will be best served by a more measured investment in the recovery effort.  While we are hopeful for a more positive outcome, we believe that without significant investment, it is more likely than not that we will be treated in a similar manner as other creditors, resulting in our priority claim having no value. Based on court filings and other information made available to us, we estimate the ratio between Freestone’s liquid assets and liabilities to be approximately 20%.  We now believe this ratio applied to our deposit represents the best estimate of the high end of the range of our ultimate recovery. Accordingly, we increased the reserve on this asset by approximately $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2018 resulting in a net carrying amount of $260,000.
 
We believe that our recovery, if any, of the deposits placed with Freestone and its affiliates will be the greater of: (i) the amount determined and allowed resulting from a tracing analysis of our collateral deposits; or (ii) the amount we would receive in distribution as a general unsecured claimant based on the amount of our collateral deposit. The Company and its counsel, in conjunction and coordination with counsel for other potentially aggrieved collateral depositors, are working diligently in order to maximize our recovery of collateral deposits previously made to Freestone and achieve the best possible outcome for our stockholders. Ultimately, the amount of the collateral deposit to be returned will be determined by the Chancery Court in Delaware, after hearing evidence and arguments from all engaged parties.
 
  
Management reviews these deposits at each balance sheet date and estimates the future range in loss related to this matter could be as high as $260,000, the net balance of the deposit. 
 
Leases:  At June 28, 2019, we leased facilities for our corporate headquarters and all of our branch locations. All of our leases are operating leases. Each branch is between 1,000 and 5,000 square feet, depending on location and market conditions.
 
We determined the discount rate used to calculate the present value of future minimum lease payments based on our incremental borrowing rate and consistent with financing terms currently in place with financial institutions. The weighted average discount rate on our operating leases is 5.0%. The weighted average remaining lease term on our operating leases is 1.6 years.
 
Below is a table of our future minimum operating lease commitments for the remainder of the current year and for the next five years, and a reconciliation to the lease liability recognized on our consolidated balance sheet, and the amount necessary to reduce our minimum lease payments to present value were calculated using our incremental borrowing rate.

Legal Proceedings:  From time to time, we are involved in various legal proceedings. We believe the outcome of these matters, even if determined adversely, will not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations. There have been no material changes in our legal proceedings as of June 28, 2019.
 
NOTE 10 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
Hire Quest Merger: On July 15, 2019, Command Center completed its acquisition of Hire Quest Holdings, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Hire Quest”), in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated April 8, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”) among the Company, CCNI One, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub 1”), Command Florida, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub 2”), Richard Hermanns as the representative Hire Quests' members and Hire Quest. In accordance with the Merger Agreement, (i) Merger Sub 1 was merged with and into Hire Quest (the “First Merger”), with Hire Quest being the surviving entity (the “First Surviving Company”), and (ii) immediately following the First Merger, the First Surviving Company was merged with and into Merger Sub 2 (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, the “Merger”), with Merger Sub 2 being the surviving entity.
 
Upon the closing of the Merger, all of the ownership interests in Hire Quest were converted into the right to receive an aggregate of 9,837,336 shares of the Company’s common stock. This resulted in the security holders of Hire Quest acquiring 68% of the shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately after the effective time of the Merger.
 
 
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Hire Quest had the right to appoint four directors to the Board, and effective July 15, 2019, each of Richard Hermanns, Edward Jackson, Payne Brown and Kathleen Shanahan (the “New Directors”) were appointed to the Board and four of our previous Directors submitted their resignations. Because Hire Quest was entitled to designate the majority of the board of directors of the combined company and Hire Quest members received a majority of the equity securities and voting rights of the combined company, Hire Quest is considered to be the acquirer of Command Center for accounting purposes. This means that Hire Quest will allocate the purchase price to the fair value of Command Center’s assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date, with any excess purchase price being recorded as goodwill.  
 
Tender Offer: On June 26, 2019, the Company commenced an issuer tender offer to purchase up to 1,500,000 shares of its common stock at a share price of $6.00 per share (the “Offer”). The Offer expired on July 25, 2019 and the Company accepted for purchase 1,394,821 shares for an aggregate cost of approximately $8.4 million, excluding fees and expenses. Following completion of the Offer, the Company has 13,071,846 shares outstanding and the percentage ownership of the Company’s common stock held by the Hire Quest security holders increased to approximately 75%, with Richard Hermanns holding 43% of the Company’s common stock and Edward Jackson holding 19% of the Company’s common stock.  
 
Credit Facility: On July 11, 2019, as a condition precedent to the Merger, the Company and its subsidiaries entered into a Loan Agreement with Branch Banking and Trust Company (the “Loan Agreement”) for a $30 million line of credit, with a $15 million sublimit for letters of credit. Interest will accrue on the outstanding balance of the line of credit at a variable rate equal to One Month LIBOR plus a margin between 1.25% and 1.75% that is determined based on the Company’s collateral value plus unrestricted cash reduced by the outstanding balance of the line of credit (the “Net Lendable Collateral”). A non-use fee of between 0.125% and 0.250% (also determined by the Net Lendable Collateral amount) will accrue on the unused portion of the line of credit. The available balance under the line of credit is reduced by outstanding letters of credit. The line of credit will mature on May 31, 2024.
 
The Loan Agreement and other loan documents contain customary events of default and negative covenants, including but not limited to those governing indebtedness, liens, fundamental changes, transactions with affiliates, and sales of assets. The Loan Agreement also requires the Company to comply with a fixed charge coverage ratio of at least 1.10:1.00. The obligations under the Loan Agreement and other loan documents are secured by substantially all of the operating assets of the Company and its subsidiaries as collateral. The Company’s obligations under the line of credit are subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of an event of default as defined in the Loan Agreement.
 
The Company’s prior credit facility with Wells Fargo was paid off in full and terminated in connection with the transaction described above. A new letter of credit was issued to the Company’s worker’s compensation insurance carrier by BB&T to replace the Wells Fargo letter.
 
Franchise Purchase Agreements and Swap Agreement: On July 15, 2019, to commence effecting the transition of the Company’s branches from being Company-owned to being franchisee-owned, the Company entered into Asset Purchase Agreements (“Purchase Agreements”) with existing franchisees of Hire Quest and new franchisees (collectively, “Buyers”) for the sale of certain assets related to the operations of the Company’s branches in Conway and North Little Rock, AR; Flagstaff, Mesa, North Phoenix, Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson, and Yuma, AZ; Aurora and Thornton, CO; Atlanta, GA; College Park and Speedway, IN; Shreveport, LA; Baltimore and Landover, MD; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, OK; Chattanooga, Madison, Memphis, and Nashville, TN; Amarillo, Austin, Houston, Irving, Lubbock, Odessa, and San Antonio, TX; and Roanoke, VA (collectively, the “Franchise Assets”).
  
The closings under such agreements occurred on July 15, 2019. The aggregate purchase price for the Franchise Assets consisted of approximately (i) $4.7 million paid in the form of promissory notes accruing interest at an annual rate of 6% issued by the Buyers to the Company plus (ii) the right to receive 2% of annual sales in excess of $3.2 million in the aggregate for the franchise territory containing Phoenix, AZ for 10 years, up to a total aggregate amount of $2.0 million.
 
Each Purchase Agreement contains negotiated representations, warranties, covenants and indemnification provisions by the parties, which are believed to be customary for transactions of this type. The Company simultaneously entered into a franchise agreement with each of the Buyers, pursuant to which the Buyers will operate such branches as franchisees.
 
A subset of the Purchase Agreements were entered into with, and the related Franchise Assets sold to Buyers in which New Directors and significant shareholders of the Company as a result of the Merger, have direct or indirect interests (the “Worlds Buyers”).
 
Pursuant to a Swap Agreement entered into between the Company and Hire Quest Financial, LLC (“Hire Quest Financial”), an affiliate of Mr. Hermanns and Mr. Jackson, the promissory notes issued by the Worlds Buyers to the Company in the aggregate principal amount of approximately $2.2 million in connection with the Franchise Assets were transferred on July 15, 2019 to Hire Quest Financial in exchange for accounts receivable of an equal value.
 
  
Consulting Agreement with Dock Square: Dock Square HQ, LLC (“Dock Square”), an affiliate of Dock Square Capital, LLC, was a strategic partner of, and 6.5% investor in, Hire Quest, LLC, a 93.5% subsidiary of Hire Quest.  Prior to the effective time of the Merger, (a) Dock Square distributed to its direct or indirect members all of its rights, title and interest in and to its membership interest in Hire Quest, LLC, and (b) each such member contributed to Hire Quest all of its respective rights, title and interest in and to its membership interest in Hire Quest, LLC as a capital contribution in exchange for, in the aggregate, a 6.5% membership interest in Hire Quest.  Immediately after such reorganization and prior to the closing of the Merger, Hire Quest owned 100% of the membership interest in Hire Quest, LLC.
 
As contemplated by the Merger Agreement, on July 15, 2019, the Company entered into a consulting arrangement with Dock Square. Pursuant to this consulting arrangement, Dock Square introduces prospective customers and expands relationships with existing customers of the Company in return for which it is eligible to receive unregistered shares of the Company’s common stock, subject to certain performance metrics and vesting terms. The grant of any such shares by the Company would be based on the gross revenue generated for the Company's franchisees from the services of Dock Square as measured over a 12 month period. These shares are granted in tiers beginning at $15 million of annual gross revenue generated for the Company's franchisees from Dock Square's service and progressing incrementally to the maximum of $360 million of annual gross revenue at the franchisee level. Upon the grant of any such shares, 50% of such granted shares would vest immediately, and the remaining 50% of such granted shares would be subject to a vesting requirement linked to the Company’s gross revenue generated from the services of Dock Square measured over a subsequent three year period such that if the aggregate amount of actual gross revenue generated for the Company's franchisees from Dock Square's services over the three year period following a grant of shares exceeds three times the corresponding annual threshold, the remaining 50% of shares vest. These three-year look back thresholds begin at $45 million of gross revenue at the franchisee level over a three-year period and progress incrementally to the maximum of $1.08 billion of gross revenue for franchisees over a three-year period.  We refer to any such shares as the “Performance Shares.”   We anticipate the maximum aggregate number of Performance Shares issuable under the consulting arrangement would not exceed approximately 1.6 million shares.  Any Performance Shares would be in addition to the pro rata portion of the shares of Company common stock that Dock Square’s members received as merger consideration at the closing of the Merger along with the other investors in Hire Quest. Dock Square would receive any declared and paid dividends on issued Performance Shares (including the unvested portion of such shares during the 3-year vesting measurement period), and the issued but unvested Performance Shares would vest on a change of control of the Company.  In addition, Dock Square received piggy-back registration rights with respect to its Performance Shares issued and vested at the time of such registration.
 
Increase in Authorized Shares of Capital Stock : In connection with the Merger and p ursuant to Articles of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation filed on July 12, 2019, the Company increased the number of the Company’s authorized capital stock from 8,749,999 to 31,000,000 shares and correspondingly increased the authorized shares of common stock from 8,333,333 to 30,000,000 shares and the authorized shares of preferred stock from 416,666 to 1,000,000 shares.

Overview and Recent Developments
 
The Company has historically been a staffing company operating primarily in the manual on-demand labor segment of the staffing industry. Our customers range in size from small businesses to large corporations. Prior to the closing of the acquisition of Hire Quest Holdings, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Hire Quest”), which acquisition we refer to as the “Merger”, all of our temporary staff, which we refer to as field team members, were employed by us. Most of our work assignments are short-term, and many are filled with little notice from our customers. In addition to short and longer term temporary work assignments, we sometimes recruit and place workers into temp-to-hire positions.
 
As a result of the Merger, our business was combined with that of Hire Quest. Hire Quest is a temporary staffing company, providing back-office support for Trojan Labor and Acrux Staffing franchised locations across the United States. Trojan Labor provides temporary staffing services that include general labor, industrial, and construction personnel. Acrux Staffing provides temporary staffing services that include skilled, semi-skilled, and general labor industrial personnel, as well as clerical and secretarial personnel. Hire Quest’s franchisees operate primarily in the on-demand labor segment of the staffing industry, and in particular in the short-term, unskilled and semi-skilled segments.
 
As of August 9, 2019, the Company, including Hire Quest, owned and operated 31 on-demand labor branches across 9 states.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation, and certain non-recurring charges, or adjusted EBITDA, is a non-GAAP measure. We utilize adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure as management believes investors find it a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons and evaluations of past, present, and future operating results. We believe it is a complement to net income and other financial performance measures. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent net income as defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, and such information should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.
 
We use adjusted EBITDA to measure our financial performance because we believe interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation, and certain non-recurring charges bear little or no relationship to our operating performance. By excluding interest expense, adjusted EBITDA measures our financial performance irrespective of our capital structure or how we finance our operations. By excluding taxes on income, we believe adjusted EBITDA provides a basis for measuring the financial performance of our operations excluding factors that are beyond our control. By excluding depreciation and amortization expense, adjusted EBITDA measures the financial performance of our operations without regard to their historical cost. By excluding non-cash compensation, adjusted EBITDA provides a basis for measuring the financial performance of our operations excluding the value of our stock and stock option awards. In addition, by excluding certain non-recurring charges, adjusted EBITDA provides a basis for measuring financial performance without non-recurring charges. For all of these reasons, we believe that adjusted EBITDA provides us, and investors, with information that is relevant and useful in evaluating our business.
 
However, because adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization, it does not measure the capital we require to maintain or preserve our fixed assets. In addition, because adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, it does not take into account the total amount of interest we pay on outstanding debt, nor does it show trends in interest costs due to changes in our financing or changes in interest rates. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by us, may not be comparable to adjusted EBITDA as reported by other companies that do not define adjusted EBITDA exactly as we define the term. Because we use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our financial performance, we reconcile it to net income, which is the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Thirteen Weeks Ended June 28, 2019
 
Summary of operations:  Revenue for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2019 was approximately $24.8 million, an increase of approximately $662,000, or 2.7%, from $24.2 million for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2018. This increase is due to organic growth.
 
Cost of staffing services:  Cost of staffing services was 73.6% of revenue in the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2019 compared to 74.0% for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in workers’ compensation costs. We also benefited from lower unemployment costs, which was offset by higher field team member wages and related payroll taxes.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses, or SG&A:  SG&A for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2019 was approximately $5.6 million, an increase of approximately $240,000 from $5.4 million for the thirteen weeks ended June 29, 2018. This increase is primarily due to increases in recruiting costs and legal and professional fees. These increases were offset by decrease in stock based compensation and internal payroll. Also, in the second quarter of 2018, we received a refund of a workers’ compensation risk pool deposit in excess of what we had recorded of approximately $198,000, which decreased SG&A in that period. Included in SG&A expenses is approximately $341,000 of legal and professional fees related to the Merger with Hire Quest.
 
Twenty-six Weeks Ended June 28, 2019
 
Summary of operations:  Revenue for the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019 and June 29, 2018 was approximately $46.6 million. The decrease we experienced in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the first quarter of 2018 was almost completely offset by the increase in the second quarter described above.
 
Cost of staffing services:  Cost of staffing services was 73.9% of revenue in the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019 compared to 74.5% for the twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in workers’ compensation costs. We also benefited from lower unemployment costs, which was offset by higher field team member wages and related payroll taxes.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses, or SG&A:  SG&A for the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019 was approximately $12.2 million, a decrease of approximately $423,000 from $12.6 million for the twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2018. This decrease is primarily due to the $1.5 million charge in last year related to the impairment of our workers’ compensation risk pool deposit in receivership. We also had a decrease in internal salaries and related payroll taxes. These decreases were offset by increased legal and other professional services expenses related to the Merger with Hire Quest, increased recruiting costs, and increased costs for medical and dental benefits for our internal employees. Included in SG&A expenses is approximately $1.0 million of legal and professional fees related to the Merger with Hire Quest.
 
  
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Our primary source of cash and liquidity to fund our ongoing operations is derived from the revenue we generate from customers utilizing our services. The primary use of our cash and liquidity is the compensation paid to our field team members and internal staff, the payroll taxes associated with that compensation, and SG&A. At June 28, 2019, our current assets exceeded our current liabilities by approximately $13.0 million. Included in current assets is cash of approximately $7.0 million and net accounts receivable of approximately $10.2 million. Included in current liabilities are accrued wages and benefits of approximately $1.6 million, and the current portion of our workers’ compensation claims liability of approximately $939,000.
 
On July 11, 2019, as a condition precedent to the Merger, the Company and its subsidiaries entered into a Loan Agreement with Branch Banking and Trust Company (the “Loan Agreement”) for a $30 million line of credit, with a $15 million sublimit for letters of credit. Interest will accrue on the outstanding balance of the line of credit at a variable rate equal to One Month LIBOR plus a margin between 1.25% and 1.75% that is determined based on the Company’s collateral value plus unrestricted cash reduced by the outstanding balance of the line of credit (the “Net Lendable Collateral”). A non-use fee of between 0.125% and 0.250% (also determined by the Net Lendable Collateral amount) will accrue on the unused portion of the line of credit. The available balance under the line of credit is reduced by outstanding letters of credit. The line of credit will mature on May 31, 2024.
 
The Loan Agreement and other loan documents contain customary events of default and negative covenants, including but not limited to those governing indebtedness, liens, fundamental changes, transactions with affiliates, and sales of assets. The Loan Agreement also requires the Company to comply with a fixed charge coverage ratio of at least 1.10:1.00. The obligations under the Loan Agreement and other loan documents are secured by substantially all of the operating assets of the Company and its subsidiaries as collateral. The Company’s obligations under the line of credit are subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of an event of default as defined in the Loan Agreement.
 
The Company’s prior credit facility with Wells Fargo was paid off and terminated in connection with the transaction described above.
  
Operating activities:  Through the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019, net cash used by operating activities totaled approximately $870,000 compared to approximately $87,000 through the twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2018. Operating activity through the second quarter of 2019 included a net loss of approximately $333,000, an increase in accounts receivable of approximately $1.3 million, a decrease in other current liabilities of approximately $373,000, and an increase in prepaid workers’ compensation of approximately $326,000. These uses were offset by an increase in accounts payable of approximately $309,000, an increase in accrued wages of approximately $404,000, and a decrease in our workers compensation risk pool deposits of approximately $194,000. Operating activity through the second quarter of 2018 included a net loss of approximately $654,000, an increase in our deferred tax asset of approximately $390,000, an increase in prepaid workers’ compensation of approximately $314,000, a decrease in accounts payable of approximately $273,000, and a decrease in other current liabilities of approximately $365,000. These uses of cash were partially offset by a decrease of approximately $1.5 million in our workers’ compensation risk pool deposit in receivership, and a decrease in workers’ compensation risk pool deposits of approximately $100,000. 
 
Investing activities:  Through the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019, net cash used by investing activities totaled approximately $32,000, compared to approximately $65,000 through the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019. The use in both years was primarily related equipment purchases.
 
Financing activities:   Through the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2019, net cash used in financing activities totaled approximately $86,000, compared to approximately $1.8 million through the twenty-six weeks ended June 29, 2018. Financing activity through the second quarter of 2019 included an increase in our account purchase agreement of approximately $127,000, and the purchase of treasury stock of approximately $213,000. Financing activity in 2018 related to a decrease in our account purchase agreement of approximately $1.1 million and the purchase of treasury stock of approximately $719,000.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
 
I tem 1. Legal Proceedings
 
From time to time we are involved in various legal proceedings. Except for the Freestone Insurance Company liquidation proceedings as described in Note 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements, we believe the outcomes of these proceedings, even if determined adversely, will not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.
 
I tem 1A. Risk Factors
 
Except as set forth below, there have been no material changes from the risk factors we previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2018 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 9, 2019.
 
The Company and Hire Quest may not realize all of the anticipated benefits of the Merger.
The success of the Merger will depend, in large part, on the ability of the combined company to realize the anticipated benefits from combining the historical businesses of the Company and Hire Quest. To realize the anticipated benefits of the Merger, the combined company must successfully integrate these businesses. This integration will be complex and time-consuming.   
 
Potential difficulties the Company and Hire Quest may encounter include, among others:
 
 
unanticipated issues in integrating logistics, information, communications and other systems;
 
 
integrating personnel from the two companies while maintaining focus on providing a consistent, high quality level of service;
 
 
transitioning the Company’s branch network to become franchise-owned by multiple franchisees, including some first-time franchisees;
 
 
integrating complex systems, technology, networks and other assets of Hire Quest in a seamless manner that minimizes any adverse impact on customers, employees, service providers, and other constituencies;
 
 
performance shortfalls at one or both of the companies as a result of the diversion of management’s attention from day-to-day operations caused by activities surrounding the completion of the Merger and integration of the companies’ operations;
 
 
potential unknown liabilities, liabilities that are significantly larger than anticipated, unforeseen expenses or delays associated with the Merger and the integration process;
 
 
unanticipated changes in applicable laws and regulations;
 
 
the impact on the Company’s internal controls and compliance with the regulatory requirements under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, including, but not limited to, complexities that arise as a result of integrating the accounting system and internal controls of a private with that of a public company; and
 
 
complexities associated with managing the larger, combined business.
 
Some of these factors are outside the control of the Company.
 
 
The Company has not completed a merger or acquisition comparable in size or scope to the Merger. The failure of the combined company, after the Merger, to successfully integrate the operations of the Company and Hire Quest or otherwise to realize any of the anticipated benefits of the Merger could cause an interruption of, or a loss of momentum in, the activities of the combined company and could adversely affect its results of operations. The integration process may be more difficult, costly or time-consuming than anticipated, which could cause the Company’s stock price to decline.
   
Future financial results of the combined company may differ materially from the unaudited pro forma combined financial statements presented in the proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed on June 18, 2019 and the financial forecasts prepared in connection with discussions concerning the Merger.
The unaudited pro forma combined financial information included in the Company’s proxy statement relating to the Merger was derived from the Company’s and Hire Quest’s separate historical consolidated financial statements. This pro forma financial information may not necessarily reflect what the Company’s results of operations and financial position would have been had the Merger occurred during the periods presented in the pro forma combined financial information, or what the Company’s results of operations and financial position will be in the future.
 
The combined company’s future operating results will be adversely affected if it does not effectively manage its expanded operations following the Merger.
Following the Merger, the size of the combined company’s business is significantly larger than the prior businesses of the Company and Hire Quest. The future success of the combined company will depend, in part, upon its ability to manage this expanded business, which will pose substantial challenges for the combined company’s management. The Company cannot assure you that the combined company will be successful or that the combined company will realize the expected operating efficiencies, synergies, and other benefits currently anticipated to result from the Merger.

Converting the Company’s business model to a franchise model following the Merger has multiple risks for our operations.
As a basis for the Merger, the Company believes Hire Quest’s franchise operating model is superior to the Company’s historical model. Following the closing of the Merger, the Company sold 33 of its branches and converted them to franchises. While this operating strategy has perceived benefits, it also comes with risks. We will have less control over the day-to-day functioning of the branches and the franchisees may operate in a manner that is counter to our interests or introduce risks to our business by departing from our operating norms. Further, operating as a franchise model will introduce regulatory risk as franchises are generally regulated at both the Federal and state level. Franchises require a different operating model than what the Company previously employed, including new IT systems and business processes that must be adopted. We plan on leveraging the Hire Quest platform for these functions, but there is no assurance that we can do so successfully.
 
Following the closing of the Merger, the ownership of the Company’s Common Stock is highly concentrated.
Following the completion of the Merger and the Offer, Hire Quest security holders own approximately 75% of our Common Stock. Concentrated ownership may limit the ability of our shareholders prior to the Merger to influence corporate matters and may also have the effect of delaying, preventing or defeating a change of control.
 
If the Company is or becomes a “personal holding company,” the Company may be required to pay personal holding company taxes, which would have an adverse effect on the Company’s cash flows, results of operations and financial condition.    
Under the Internal Revenue Code, a corporation that is a “personal holding company” may be required to pay a personal holding company tax in addition to regular income taxes. A corporation generally is considered a personal holding company if (1) at any time during the last half of the taxable year more than 50% of the value of the corporation’s outstanding stock is owned, directly, indirectly or constructively, by or for five or fewer individuals (the “Ownership Test”) and (2) at least 60% of the corporation’s “adjusted ordinary gross income” constitutes “personal holding company income” (the “Income Test”). A corporation that is considered a personal holding company is required to pay a personal holding company tax at a rate equal to 20% of such corporation’s undistributed personal holding company income, which is generally taxable income with certain adjustments, including a deduction for U.S. federal income taxes and dividends paid.
 
As a result of the Merger, the Company will likely satisfy the Ownership Test in 2019. However, the Company does not expect to satisfy the Income Test in 2019. Accordingly, the Company does not believe that it will be considered a personal holding company in 2019. However, because personal holding company status is determined annually and is based on the nature of the Company’s income and the percentage of the Company’s outstanding stock that is owned, directly, indirectly or constructively, by major shareholders, there can be no assurance that the Company will not be a personal holding company in 2019 or become a personal holding company in any future taxable year. If the Company were considered a personal holding company with undistributed personal holding company income in a taxable year, the payment of personal holding company taxes would have an adverse effect on the Company’s cash flows, results of operations and financial condition.
 
Our operating and financial results and growth strategies as a franchisor will be closely tied to the success of our franchisees.
As a result of the Merger and the commencement of our transition to a franchise structure, the majority of the Company’s combined branches are operated by its franchisees, which makes it dependent on the financial success and cooperation of its franchisees. The Company has limited control over how its franchisees’ businesses are run, and the inability of franchisees to operate successfully could adversely affect its operating and financial results through decreased royalty payments. If its franchisees incur too much debt, if their operating expenses increase or if economic or sales trends deteriorate such that they are unable to operate profitably or repay existing debt, it could result in their financial distress, including insolvency or bankruptcy. If a significant franchisee or a significant number of franchisees become financially distressed, our operating and financial results could be impacted through reduced or delayed royalty payments. Our success also depends on the willingness and ability of its franchisees to implement major initiatives, which may include financial investment. Our franchisees may be unable to successfully implement strategies that we believe are necessary for their further growth, which in turn may harm our growth prospects and financial condition.

 
 
The Company’s franchisees could take actions that could harm its business.
Our franchisees are contractually obligated to operate their branches in accordance with the operations standards set forth in our agreements with them and applicable laws. However, although the Company attempts to properly train and support all its franchisees, they are independent third parties whom it does not control. The franchisees own, operate, and oversee the daily operations of their branches, and their core branch employees are not our employees. Accordingly, their actions are outside of our control. Although wehave developed criteria to evaluate and screen prospective franchisees, we cannot be certain that our franchisees will have the business acumen or financial resources necessary to operate successful franchises at their approved locations, and state franchise laws may limit our ability to terminate or not renew these franchise agreements. Moreover, despite their training, support and monitoring, franchisees may not successfully operate branches in a manner consistent with our standards and requirements or may not hire and adequately train qualified branch personnel. The failure of our franchisees to operate their franchises in accordance with its standards or applicable law, actions taken by their employees or a negative publicity event at one of its branches or involving one of its franchisees could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s reputation, its brands, its ability to attract prospective franchisees, its company-owned branch, and its business, financial condition or results of operations.
 
If the Company fails to identify, recruit and contract with a sufficient number of qualified franchisees, its ability to open new branches and increase its revenues could be materially adversely affected.
The opening of additional branches and expansion into new markets depends, in part, upon the availability of prospective franchisees who meet the Company’s criteria. Many of the Company’s franchisees open and operate multiple branches, and part of its growth strategy requires it to identify, recruit and contract with new franchisees or rely on its existing franchisees to expand. The Company may not be able to identify, recruit or contract with suitable franchisees in its target markets on a timely basis or at all. If it is unable to recruit suitable franchisees or if franchisees are unable or unwilling to open new branches, its growth may be slower than anticipated, which could materially adversely affect its ability to increase its revenues and materially adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
Opening new branches in existing markets and aggressive development could cannibalize existing sales and may negatively affect sales at existing branches.
The Company intends to continue opening new franchised branches in its existing markets as a part of its growth strategy. Expansion in existing markets may be affected by local economic and market conditions. Further, the customer target area of the Company’s branches varies by location, depending on a number of factors, including population density, area demographics and geography. As a result, the opening of a new branch in or near markets in which its franchisees’ branches already exist could adversely affect the sales of these existing franchised branches. Sales cannibalization between branches may become significant in the future as the Company continues to expand its operations and could affect sales growth, which could, in turn, materially adversely affect its business, financial condition or results of operations. There can be no assurance that sales cannibalization will not occur or become more significant in the future as the Company increases its presence in existing markets.
 
The Company may engage in litigation with its franchisees.
Although the Company believes it generally enjoys a positive working relationship with its franchisees, the nature of the franchisor-franchisee relationship may give rise to litigation with its franchisees. While the Company does not currently engage in litigation with its franchisees in the ordinary course of business, it is possible that it may experience litigation with some of its franchisees in the future. The Company may engage in future litigation with franchisees to enforce its contractual indemnification rights if it is brought into a matter involving a third party due to the franchisee’s alleged acts or omissions. In addition, it may be subject to claims by its franchisees relating to its franchise disclosure document, including claims based on financial information contained in its franchise disclosure document. Engaging in such litigation may be costly and time-consuming and may distract management and materially adversely affect its relationships with franchisees and its ability to attract new franchisees. Any negative outcome of these or any other claims could materially adversely affect the Company’s results of operations as well as its ability to expand its franchise system and may damage its reputation and brands. Furthermore, existing and future franchise-related legislation could subject the Company to additional litigation risk in the event it terminates or fail to renew a franchise relationship.
