THE WOODLANDS, Texas, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Target Hospitality Corp. ("Target Hospitality", "Target" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TH), the largest provider of vertically-integrated specialty hospitality accommodations with premium food management and value-added hospitality services in the U.S., today announced that as a result of the SEC's staff's recent guidance change on April 12, 2021 for all Special Purpose Acquisition Companies ("SPACs") regarding the accounting and reporting for their warrants (the "SEC Guidance Change"), it will amend and restate its previously issued Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

The restatement pertains to the accounting treatment for private placement warrants (the "Private Warrants") that were outstanding at the time of the merger with Platinum Eagle Acquisition Corp. ("Platinum Eagle") on March 15, 2019 ("Business Combination"). Consistent with the Company's review of the applicable accounting literature, guidance provided by third-party advisors, including Platinum Eagle's accounting advisor, as well as common accounting practices for SPACs, the Company previously accounted for the Private Warrants as equity under a fixed accounting model.

However, consistent with the recent SEC Guidance Change, the Company now intends to restate historical financial statements, for the years ended December 2019 and 2020, such that the Private Warrants are accounted for as liabilities and adjusted to fair value each reporting period (the "restatement"). In periods subsequent to the Business Combination, changes in the estimated fair value of the Private Warrants will be reported in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income (loss).  Target believes that the marked-to-market expense or income included in its financial statements may not be necessarily reflective of the actual financial performance of the Company.

The Company expects the restatement to be non-cash in nature and does not anticipate any impact to its previously communicated GAAP metrics such as revenues, operating income (loss), cash and cash equivalents, assets or debt, or previously communicated non-GAAP operating metrics including adjusted Gross Profit, adjusted EBITDA or Discretionary cash flow.

The Company anticipates the restatement to impact total liabilities and shareholders' equity and to result in incremental non-operating income (expense) related to the non-cash changes in the fair values of the Private Warrants which will impact net income (loss), and earnings (loss) per share.

As a result of the restatement, Target expects to recognize incremental 2019 and 2020 non-operating income between $2 million and $6 million. There will be no impact to its previously reported net cash flow.

The following provides additional detail regarding how the Company currently anticipates the restatement will impact its various financial statements:

  • Opening Balance Sheet Impact: As of the date of the Business Combination, the fair value of the Private Warrants will be reflected as warrant liabilities in the Company's balance sheet with a corresponding offset in Additional paid-in-capital within equity.
  • Income Statement Impacts: Subsequent to the close of the Business Combination, any change in the fair value of the Private Warrants is recognized in the income statement below operating profit as "Change in fair value of warrant liabilities" with a corresponding amount recognized in the balance sheet.
  • Balance Sheet Impacts: As noted above, the change in the balance of the warrant liabilities on the Company's balance sheet is impacted by the fair value changes of the Private Warrants. When the Private Warrants are exercised, the fair value of the liability is reclassified to Additional paid-in capital within equity. The cash received for the exercise of the Private Warrants is reflected in cash and cash equivalents, and the corresponding offset is also in Additional paid-in-capital in equity.
  • Cash Flow Impacts: The impact of the changes in fair value of the Private Warrants has no impact on net cash provided by (used in) operating activities.
  • Statement of Equity Impacts: The impact to Additional paid-in-capital as of the opening balance sheet is highlighted above. Subsequent exercises of the Private Warrants result in a reduction of the Company's warrant liabilities with a corresponding increase to Additional paid-in-capital.

These estimates are subject to change as management completes the restatement, and the Company's independent registered public accounting firm has not audited or reviewed these estimates. As a result, the expected financial impact described above is preliminary and subject to change.

Finally, as of today, Target has approximately 5.3 million Private Warrants outstanding.
