Nature of Operations
The Group is a global manufacturer and supplier of turn-key self-storage, commercial and industrial building solutions including: roll up and swing doors, hallway systems, relocatable storage units, and facility and door automation technologies with manufacturing operations in Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Indiana, North Carolina, United Kingdom, Australia, and Singapore.
The Group’s business is operated through two geographic regions that comprise our two reportable segments: Janus North America and Janus International. The Janus International segment is comprised of Janus International Europe Ltd., a company incorporated in England and Wales (“JIE”), whose production and sales are largely in Europe and Australia. The Janus North America segment is comprised of all the other entities including Janus International Group, LLC (together with each of its operating subsidiaries, “Janus Core”), Betco, Inc. (“BETCO”), Noke, Inc. (“NOKE”), Asta Industries, Inc. (“ASTA”), Janus Door, LLC (“Janus Door”) and Steel Door Depot.com, LLC (“Steel Door Depot”).
Assets held at foreign locations were approximately $59,260 and $58,439 as of July 2, 2022 and January 1, 2022, respectively. Revenues earned at foreign locations totaled approximately $20,324 and $18,345 for the three months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021, respectively, and $38,238 and $30,905 for the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021, respectively.
Principles of Consolidation
The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. The Company’s joint venture is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
On June 7, 2021, Midco transferred Janus Core, its wholly owned direct subsidiary, to the Group, thereby transferring the business for which historical financial information is included in these results of operations, to be indirectly held by Midco.
The Business Combination (defined and discussed below) was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Under this method of accounting, Juniper Industrial Holdings, Inc. (“Juniper” or “JIH”) is treated as the acquired company and Midco is treated as the acquirer for financial statement reporting purposes (the “Combined Company”). Accordingly, for accounting purposes, the financial statements of the Combined Company represent a continuation of the financial statements of Midco with the acquisition being treated as the equivalent of Midco issuing stock for the net assets of JIH, accompanied by a recapitalization. The net assets of JIH will be stated at historical cost, with no goodwill or other intangible assets recorded.
Use of Estimates in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
The preparation of Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with U.S GAAP requires management 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include, but are not limited to, the derivative warrant liability, the recognition of the valuations of unit-based compensation arrangements, the useful lives of property and equipment, revenue recognition, allowances for uncollectible receivable balances, fair values and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill and assumptions used in the recognition of contract assets.
Emerging Growth Company
Section 102(b)(1) of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, exempts emerging growth companies from being required to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards until private companies are required to comply with the new or revised financial accounting standards. The Company qualifies as an “Emerging Growth Company” and has elected to use the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards under Section 102(b)(1) of the JOBS Act. This election allows the Company to adopt the new or revised standard at the same time periods as private companies.
Fair Value Measurement
The Company uses valuation approaches that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible. A three-tiered hierarchy is established as a basis for considering such assumptions and for inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value. This hierarchy requires that the Company use observable market data, when available, and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value:
Level 1, observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
Level 2, inputs other than the quoted prices in active markets that are observable either directly or indirectly;
Level 3, unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which requires that the Company develop its own assumptions.
The fair value of cash, accounts receivable, less allowance for doubtful accounts and account payable approximate the carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these instruments which fall with Level 1 of the Fair Value hierarchy. The fair value of the Company’s debt approximates its carrying amount as of July 2, 2022 and January 1, 2022 due to its variable interest rate that is tied to the current London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) rate plus an applicable margin and consistency in our credit rating. To estimate the fair value of the Company’s long term debt, the Company utilized fair value based risk measurements that are indirectly observable, such as credit risk that fall within Level 2 of the Fair Value hierarchy. The fair value of the warrants contain significant unobservable inputs including the expected term and the share exchange ratio in evaluating the fair value of underlying common stock , and exercise price, therefore, the warrant liabilities were evaluated to be a Level 3 fair value measurement. As of June 26, 2021, the fair value of the private and public warrants were valued at market price.
Significant Accounting Policies
Other than the following, the Company's significant accounting policies have not changed materially from those described in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 1, 2022.
Allowance for Credit Losses
On January 2, 2022, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (Topic 326) (“CECL”), which changes the impairment model for most financial assets. The new model uses a forward-looking expected loss method, which will generally result in earlier recognition of allowances for losses. Refer to Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements section of this note for more information on the impact to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
The Company gathered information about its current bad debt reserve and write-off practices and loss methodology, in-scope assets, historical credit losses, proposed pooling approach and expected changes to business practices under CECL. Accounts receivables are stated at estimated net realizable value from the sale of products and services to established customers. The Company determined that pooling accounts receivable by business units was the most appropriate because of the similarity of risk characteristics within each line such as customers and services offered. Historical losses and customer-specific reserve information that are used to calculate the historical loss rates are available for each business unit.

During the pooling process, the Company identified two distinct customer types: commercial and self-storage. As these customer types have different risk characteristics, the Company concludes to pool the financial assets at this level within each business unit.

Commercial customers typically are customers contracting with the Company on short-term projects with smaller credit limits and overall, smaller project sizes. Due to the short-term nature and smaller scale of these types of projects, the Company expects minimal write-offs of its receivables at the Commercial pool.

Self-storage projects typically involve general contractors and make up the largest portion of the Company’s accounts receivable balance. These projects are usually longer-term construction projects and billed over the course of construction. Credit limits are larger for these
projects given the overall project size and duration. Due to the longer-term nature and larger scale of these types of projects, the Company expects a potential for more write-offs of its receivable balances within the Self-Storage pool.

The Company reviewed methods provided by the guidance and determined the loss-rate method to be used in the CECL analysis for trade receivables and contract assets. This loss-rate method was selected as there is reliable historical information available by business unit, and this historical information was determined to be representative of the Company’s current customers, products, services, and billing practices.

The summary of activity in the allowance for credit losses for the six months ended July 2, 2022 and June 26, 2021 are as follows:

Beginning Balance
CECL Adoption1
Provision (Reversal), net
Ending Balance
$ 5,449  $ 366  $ (1,017) $ 1,809  $ 6,607
