Notes To Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2021
 
1.GENERAL
 
GrowGeneration Corp (the “Company”, "we", or "our") is the largest chain of hydroponic garden centers in North America and is a leading marketer and distributor of nutrients, growing media, advanced indoor and greenhouse lighting, ventilation systems and accessories for hydroponic gardening. Currently, the Company owns and operates a chain of fifty-eight (58) retail hydroponic/gardening stores across 12 states, an online e-commerce platform, and proprietary businesses that market grow solutions through our platforms and other wholesale customers. The Company’s plan is to continue to acquire, open and operate hydroponic/gardening stores and related businesses throughout the United States. 

Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying interim unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.  The results of operations for our interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full fiscal year.
 
All amounts included in the accompanying footnotes to the consolidated financial statements, except per share data, is in thousands (000).
 
Risk and Uncertainties
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant public health concerns as well as economic disruption, uncertainty, and volatility which may negatively affect our business operations. As a result, if the pandemic persists or worsens, our accounting estimates and assumptions could be impacted in subsequent interim reports and upon final determination at year-end, and it is reasonably possible such changes could be significant (although the potential effects cannot be estimated at this time). The Company has experienced minimal business interruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been deemed an “essential” business by state and local authorities in the areas in which we operate and as such have not been subject to business closures. The COVID-19 pandemic to date has resulted in temporary supply chain delays of our inventory. As events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic can change rapidly we cannot predict how it may disrupt our operations or the full extent of the disruption.

New Accounting Policies Adopted During the Six Months Ended June 30, 2021
 
Securities
 
The Company classifies its commercial paper and debt securities as marketable securities. Marketable securities with available fair market values are stated at fair market values. Unrealized gains and unrealized losses on these marketable securities are reported, net of applicable income taxes, in other comprehensive income. Realized gains or losses on sale of marketable securities are computed using primarily the moving average cost and reported in net income. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, there were no significant unrealized gains or losses recorded.

2.FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
 
Fair Value Measurements
 
Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value are to be classified and disclosed in one of the following three levels of the fair value hierarchy, of which the first two are considered observable and the last is considered unobservable:
 
Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2—Observable inputs (other than Level 1 quoted prices), such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to determining the fair value of the assets or liabilities, including pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.
 
To the extent that the valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. Accordingly, the degree of judgment exercised by the Company in determining fair value is greatest for instruments categorized in Level 3. A financial instrument’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
 
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, available for sales securities, accounts payable and all other current liabilities approximate fair values due to their short-term nature. The fair value of notes receivable approximates the outstanding balance and are reviewed for impairment at least annually. The fair value of impaired notes receivable is determined based on estimated future payments discounted back to present value using the notes effective interest rate.

3.RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
New Accounting Pronouncements
 
From time to time, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) or other standard setting bodies issue new accounting pronouncements. Updates to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”). We have implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact our financial statements. We have evaluated recently issued accounting pronouncements and determined that there is no material impact on our financial position or results of operations. 
 
As an emerging growth company, the Company is permitted to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards until such time as those standards apply to private companies. The Company has chosen to take advantage of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards.
 
Refer to Note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements reported in Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 for recently issued accounting pronouncements that are pending adoption. 
 
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
 
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. The new guidance modifies the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements in Topic 820. The amendments in ASU 2018-13 are effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The adoption of this new guidance, effective January 1, 2020, did not have a material impact on our Financial Statements.
 
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles and also simplification of areas such as franchise taxes, step-up in tax basis goodwill, separate entity financial statements and interim recognition of enactment of tax laws or rate changes. The standard was effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim reporting periods within those periods. There was no material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures as a result of adopting this standard.

OVERVIEW
 
GrowGeneration Corp. (together with all of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, collectively “GrowGeneration” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Colorado in 2014 and is the largest chain of hydroponic garden centers in North America and is a leading marketer and distributor of nutrients, growing media, advanced indoor and greenhouse lighting, environmental control systems and accessories for hydroponic gardening. GrowGeneration also owns and operates e-commerce platforms, www.growgeneration.com and www.agron.io, Canopy Crop Management Corp, CharCoir Inc, and several proprietary private-label brands across multiple product categories from LED lighting to nutrients and additives and environmental control systems for indoor cultivation.
 
Markets
 
GrowGeneration sell thousands of products, including nutrients, growing media, advanced indoor and greenhouse lighting, environmental control systems, vertical benching and accessories for hydroponic gardening, as well as other indoor and outdoor growing products, that are designed and intended for growing a wide range of plants. In addition, vertical farms producing organic fruits and vegetables also utilize hydroponics due to a rising shortage of farmland as well as environmental vulnerabilities including drought, other severe weather conditions and insect pests.
 
Our retail operations are driven by a wide selection of all hydroponic products, service and solutions driven staff and pick, pack and ship distribution and fulfillment capabilities. We employ approximately 671 employees, a majority of them we have branded as “Grow Pros.” Currently, our operations span over 875,000 square feet of retail and warehouse space.
 
We operate our business through the following business units:
 
Retail: 58 operating hydroponic/gardening centers focused on serving growers and cultivators.

Commercial: Sales to commercial customers, including large multi-state operators and cultivators.

E-Commerce/Omni-channel: Our e-commerce operation, includes GrowGeneration.com and Agron.io, a business-to-business (B2B) online portal for commercial growers. GrowGeneration.com is currently adding “Buy online/Pick up in store” same day pick up service.

Competitive Advantages
 
As the largest chain of hydroponic garden centers by revenue and number of stores in the United States based on management’s estimates, we believe that we have the following core competitive advantages over our competitors:
 
We offer a one-stop shopping experience to all types of growers by providing “selection, service, and solutions”;
22



We provide end-to-end solutions for our commercial customers from capex built-out to consumables to nourish their plants;

We have a knowledge-based sales team, all with horticultural experience;

We offer the options to transact online, in store, or buy online and pick up;

We consider ourselves to be a leader of the products we offer, from launching new technologies to the development of our private label products;

We have a professional team for mergers and acquisitions to acquire and open new locations and successfully add them to our company portfolio; and

We offer a program of issuing credit to licensed commercial customers based on a credit evaluation process.

Growth Strategy - Store Acquisitions and New Store Openings
 
Core to our growth strategy is to expand the number of our retail garden centers throughout North America. The hydroponic retail landscape is fragmented, which allows us to acquire the “best of breed” hydroponic operations. In addition to the 12 states we are currently operating in, we have identified new market opportunities in states that include Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Mississippi and Missouri. In 2020, we opened a second hydroponic/gardening center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a 40,000 square feet store operation and fulfillment center, and completed eight (8) acquisitions, adding 14 new locations. The Company acquired 17 new locations in the first half of 2021, three additional locations in July 2021 and has an active target pipeline of acquisitions which are planned to close in 2021.

The increase in store operating costs was directly attributable to the 182% increase in revenues, the addition of twenty-nine (29) locations that were added after June 30, 2020, and two (2) locations added during the six months ended June 30, 2020 that were open for the entire quarter ended June 30, 2021.
 
Total corporate overhead was approximately $22.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $12.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, an increase of $10.6 million or 86%. Selling, general, and administrative costs were approximately $18.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to approximately $11.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Salaries expense increased to $9.6 million from $3.8 million primarily due to an increase in corporate staff and general and administrative expenses increased to $5.1 million from $2.4 million to support expanding operations.  These increases were partially offset by a decrease in share-based compensation to $3.2 million from $5.3 million primarily due to new executive compensation agreements effective January 1, 2020 that had front loaded vesting provisions for shares and options that vested January 1, 2020 for which the remaining vesting was over a two-year period.

Net Income

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $12.9 million, compared to a net income of approximately $0.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, a increase of approximately $12.4 million.

Operating Activities
 
Net cash provided by operating activities for six months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $2.3 million compared to $6.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
 
Net cash used in investing activities was approximately $111.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and approximately $5.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Investing activities in 2021 were primarily attributable to acquisitions of $48.0 million , purchase of marketable securities of $57.4 million, vehicles and store equipment purchases $4.4 million and intangible asset purchases of $1.3 million. Investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were primarily related to store acquisitions of $3.0 million, the purchase of vehicles and store equipment to support new store operations of $1.3 million and intangible assets of $0.7 million. 
 
Net cash used in financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $1.9 million and was primarily attributable to stock redemptions partially offset by the proceeds from the sales of common stock and exercise of warrants. Net cash provided by financing activities for six months ended June 30, 2020 was $0.7 million and was primarily from proceeds from the sale of common stock and exercise of warrants.
 
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
 
The Company believes that the presentation of results excluding certain items in “Adjusted EBITDA,” such as non-cash equity compensation charges, provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors, facilitating the evaluation of performance across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures for internal planning and reporting purposes. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or net income per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
As of June 30, 2021, we had working capital of approximately $195.9 million, compared to working capital of approximately $222.9 million as of December 31, 2020, a decrease of approximately $27.0 million.. The decrease in working capital from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021 was due primarily to ten (10) business acquisition completed during the six months ended June 30, 2021 for which the cash consideration was approximately $48.0 million. This decrease in working capital related to business acquisitions was partially offset by an increase in inventory associated with more locations and our ability to leverage greater bulk purchasing due to our growth. At June 30, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $67.2 million and available for sale debt securities of $57.4 million. Currently, we have no demands, commitments or uncertainties that would reduce our current working capital. Our core strategy continues to focus on expanding our geographic reach across the United States through organic growth and acquisitions. Based on our strategy we may need to raise additional capital in the future through equity offerings and/or debt financings. We believe that some of our store acquisitions and new store openings can come from cash flow from operations.
 
We anticipate that we may need additional financing in the future to continue to acquire and open new stores and related businesses. To date we have financed our operations through the issuance and sale of common stock, convertible notes and warrants.
 
Critical Accounting Policies, Judgements and Estimates
 
For a summary of the Company’s significant accounting policies, please refer to Note 2 to our Consolidated Financial Statements filed on our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements (as that term is defined in Item 303 of Regulation S-K) that are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition, revenue or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
 
We are a smaller reporting company and are not required to provide the information under this item pursuant to Regulation S-K.
 
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Management maintains “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO"). Based on evaluation under these criteria, management determined, based upon the existence of the material weaknesses described below, that we did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2021.
 
A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that a reasonable possibility exists that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements would not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
 
The Company did not design and implement effective control activities based on the criteria established in the COSO framework. Specifically, these control deficiencies constitute material weaknesses, either individually or in the aggregate, relating to: (i) selecting and developing control activities and information technology that contribute to the mitigation of risks and support achievement of objectives; and (ii) deploying control activities through policies that establish what is expected and procedures that put policies into action.
 
The following were contributing factors to the material weaknesses in control activities:

 Insufficient resources within the accounting and financial reporting department to review the accounting implications of complex transactions..

Inadequate segregation of duties within the bank accounts.

Ineffective information technology general controls (ITGCs) in the areas of user access over certain information technology (IT) systems that support the Company’s financial reporting processes.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the most recent fiscal quarter, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting, except for the implementation of remediation plans for the deficiency to address the material weakness identified.
 
Remediation Plan and Status
 
Our remediation efforts are ongoing and we will continue our initiatives to implement and document policies, procedures, and internal controls. Remediation efforts will include but are not limited to new hires in critical positions to improve segregation of duties, supervision and oversight, as well as implementation of technologies to improve effective controls.
 
Remediation of the identified material weaknesses and strengthening our internal control environment will require a substantial effort throughout 2021 and beyond, as necessary. We will test the ongoing operating effectiveness of the new and existing controls in future periods. The material weaknesses cannot be considered completely remediated until the applicable controls have operated for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively.
 
27


While we believe the steps taken to date and those planned for implementation will improve the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, we have not completed all remediation efforts identified herein. Accordingly, as we continue to monitor the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting in the areas affected by the material weaknesses described above, we have and will continue to perform additional procedures prescribed by management, including the use of manual mitigating control procedures and employing any additional tools and resources deemed necessary, to ensure that our consolidated financial statements are fairly stated in all material respects.
 
Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls
 
Management, including our CEO, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, misstatements, errors, and instances of fraud, if any, within our organization have been or will be prevented or detected.
 
These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls also can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, internal controls may become inadequate as a result of changes in conditions, or through the deterioration of the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings
 
None.
 
Item 1A. Risk Factors
 
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic could have a material negative effect on our results of operations, cash flows, financial position, and business operations.
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant public health concerns as well as economic disruption, uncertainty, and volatility which may negatively affect our business operations.
 
We are unable to predict the impact that COVID-19 will have on our results of operations, cash flows, financial position, and business operations due to numerous uncertainties. These uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the severity of the virus; the duration of the pandemic; governmental actions which include restrictions on our operations up to and including potential closure of our stores and distribution centers; the duration and degree of quarantine or shelter-in-place measures, including additional measures that may still occur; impacts on our supply chain which include suppliers of our products and our transportation vendors; the health of our workforce and our ability to maintain staffing needs to operate our business; how macroeconomic factors evolve including unemployment rates and recessionary pressures; the impact of the crisis on consumer shopping patterns, both during and after the crisis; volatility in the economy as well as the credit and financial markets during and after the pandemic; the incremental costs of doing business during the crisis as well as on a long-term basis; potential increases in insurance premiums, medical claims costs, and workers’ compensation claim costs; unknown consequences on our business performance and initiatives stemming from the substantial investment of time and other resources to the pandemic response; potential delays in growth initiatives including the timing of new store openings; potential adverse effects on our internal control environment and information security as a result of changes to a remote work environment; and the long-term impact of the crisis on our business.
 
In addition, we cannot predict the impact that the pandemic will have on our manufacturers and suppliers of our products and other business partners such as service vendors; however, any material effect on these parties could adversely impact our results of operations and our ability to operate our business effectively.
 
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic could have a material negative effect on our supply chain.
 
Circumstances surrounding and related to the COVID-19 pandemic have created unprecedented impacts on the global supply chain. Our business relies on an efficient and effective supply chain, including the manufacture and transportation of our products as well as the effective functioning of our distribution centers. Impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic are placing strain on the domestic and international supply chain that could negatively affect the flow or availability of our products and result in higher out-of-stock inventory positions due to difficulties in timely obtaining product from the manufacturers and suppliers of our products as well as transportation of those products to our distribution centers and stores. Further, we may have to source products from different manufacturers or geographic locations which could result in, among other things, higher product costs, increased transportation costs, delays in receiving products or lower quality of the products.
 
Any of these circumstances could adversely affect our ability to deliver inventory in a timely manner, which could impair our ability to meet customer demand for products and result in lost sales, increased supply chain costs, or damage to our reputation.
 
Actions taken to protect the health and safety of our team members and customers during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic have increased our operating costs and may not be sufficient to protect against operational or reputational harm to our business.
 
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken a number of actions across our business to help protect our team members, customers, and others in the communities we serve. These measures include personal protective equipment for our team members, a requirement to wear masks in our facilities, increased staffing in order to provide contact-free curbside pickup from stores, expansion of our capabilities to support delivery to customer homes, increased cleaning and sanitizing measures, and monitoring for “social distancing” directives, as well as additional cleaning materials in our facilities. Additionally, we have provided appreciation bonuses as well as permanent increases in compensation and benefits for our team members in our stores and distribution centers to further support them during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Actions such as these have
29


resulted in significant incremental costs and we expect that we will continue to incur these costs for the foreseeable future, which in turn will have an adverse impact on our results of operations.
 
The health and safety of our team members and customers are of primary concern to our management team. However, due to the unpredictable nature of this virus and the consequences of our actions, we may see unexpected outcomes notwithstanding our added safety measures. For instance, if we do not respond appropriately to the pandemic, or if our customers do not participate in “social distancing” and other safety measures, the well-being of our team members and customers could be jeopardized. Furthermore, any failure to appropriately respond, or the perception of an inadequate response, could cause reputational harm to our brand and subject us to claims and litigation from team members, customers and service providers.
 
Additionally, an outbreak of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our stores or distribution centers could result in temporary or sustained workforce shortages or facility closures which would negatively impact our underlying business and results of operations.

There may be limitations on the effectiveness of our internal controls. Failure of our internal control over financial reporting could harm our business and financial results.

Proper systems of internal controls over financial accounting and disclosure are critical to the operation of a public company. Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Internal control over financial reporting includes maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of the financial statements; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures of our assets are made in accordance with management authorization; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements would be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Any failure to maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting could limit our ability to report our financial results accurately and timely or to detect and prevent fraud.

Moreover, we do not expect that disclosure controls or internal control over financial reporting will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Failure of our control systems to prevent error or fraud could materially adversely impact us.

In connection with the evaluation of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2020 that was undertaken by management, management identified the following material weaknesses in our control activities: i) insufficient resources within the accounting and financial reporting department to review the accounting for warrant compensation accounting, share-based compensation accounting, and accounting for rebates; ii) inadequate segregation of duties within the bank accounts; and ineffective information technology general controls (ITGCs) in the areas of user access over certain information technology (IT) systems that support the Company’s financial reporting processes. Based upon the existence of such material weaknesses, management concluded that we did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2020.

We have adopted a remediation plan and are in the process of implementing such plan. Remediation efforts will include but are not limited to new hires in critical positions to improve segregation of duties, supervision and oversight, as well as implementation of technologies to improve effective controls. Remediation of the identified material weaknesses and strengthening our internal control environment will require a substantial effort throughout 2021 and beyond, as necessary. We will test the ongoing operating effectiveness of the new and existing controls in future periods. The material weaknesses cannot be considered completely remediated until the applicable controls have operated for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively.

While we believe the steps taken to date and those planned for implementation will improve the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, we have not completed all remediation efforts identified herein. Accordingly, as we continue to monitor the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting in the areas affected by the material weaknesses described above, we have and will continue to perform additional procedures prescribed by management, including the use of manual mitigating control procedures and employing any additional tools and resources deemed necessary, to ensure that our consolidated financial statements are fairly stated in all material respects.

If we are unable to assert that our internal control over financial reporting is effective, or, if applicable, our independent registered public accounting firm is unable to express an opinion on the effectiveness of our internal controls, we could lose investor confidence in the accuracy and completeness of our financial reports, which would cause the price of our Common Stock to decline.
