Basis of Presentation
Chuy’s Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “Chuy’s”) is in the business of developing and operating Chuy’s restaurants throughout the United States. Chuy’s is a fast-growing, full-service restaurant concept offering a distinct menu of authentic, freshly-prepared Mexican and Tex Mex inspired food. As of September 29, 2013, the Company operated 46 restaurants in thirteen states.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), except that certain information and notes have been condensed or omitted pursuant to rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full fiscal year. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2012.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain 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 for the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Certain prior period amounts were reclassified to conform to the 2013 presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on net income or total equity.
The Company operates on a 52- or 53- week fiscal year that ends on the last Sunday of the calendar year. Each quarterly period has 13 weeks, except for a 53-week year when the fourth quarter has 14 weeks. Our 2012 fiscal year consisted of 53 weeks and our 2013 fiscal year will consist of 52 weeks.
On January 30, 2013, a secondary offering of the Company’s common stock was completed by certain of the Company’s existing stockholders. The selling stockholders sold 5,175,000 previously outstanding shares, including 675,000 shares sold pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares.
On April 17, 2013, a secondary offering of the Company's common stock was completed by certain of the Company's existing stockholders. The selling stockholders sold 3,000,000 previously outstanding shares. In addition, the underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional 257,113 shares of common stock from the selling stockholders.
The Company did not receive any proceeds from these two offerings. The selling stockholders paid all of the underwriting discounts and commissions associated with the sale of the shares; however, the Company incurred approximately $1.2 million in costs and registration expenses related to the offerings, of which $925,000 was incurred during the thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2013.
