Basis of Presentation
Nature’s Sunshine Products, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (hereinafter referred to collectively as the “Company”), is a natural health and wellness company primarily engaged in the manufacturing and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products. The Company sells its products to a sales force of independent distributors who use the products themselves or resell them to consumers.
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation. The Company consolidates the joint ventures in Hong Kong and China in its consolidated financial statements, with another party's interest presented as noncontrolling interest. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals), considered necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial information as of September 30, 2017, and for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. The results of operations of any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017.
It is suggested that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
Noncontrolling interests decreased as a result of the net loss attributable to the noncontrolling interests by $0.6 million and $0.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. As of September 30, 2017, and December 31, 2016, noncontrolling interests were $0.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively.
Classification of Ukraine as a Highly Inflationary Economy and Devaluation of Its Currency
As of June 2017, Ukraine has been designated as a highly inflationary economy, which, in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("U.S. GAAP"), requires that the Company's functional currency for this market be the U.S. dollar. However, because the Company's operations in Ukraine are served by a U.S. subsidiary through third-party entities, for which all business is conducted in U.S. dollars, the U.S. dollar has historically been the functional currency for the Company in this market. As a result, there were no resulting gains or losses from a re-measurement of the financial statements using official rates of the Company’s Ukrainian subsidiary. However, as a result of the weakening of the Ukraine Hryvnia, the purchasing power of the Company’s independent Distributors in this market has diminished. During the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company’s Ukrainian subsidiary’s net sales represented approximately 2.3 percent and 2.3 percent of consolidated net sales, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company’s Ukrainian subsidiary’s net sales represented approximately 2.3 percent and 2.2 percent of consolidated net sales, respectively.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), and has subsequently issued ASUs 2015-14 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date, 2016-08 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross Versus Net), 2016-10 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, 2016-12 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, and 2016-20 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Technical Corrections and Improvements to Topic 606 (collectively, Topic 606).
Topic 606 outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The guidance is based on the principle that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from costs incurred to fulfill a contract. This guidance is effective for the Company beginning on January 1, 2018, and provides the Company with the option of using either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective approach for the adoption of the new standard. The Company expects to adopt Topic 606 using the modified retrospective approach, under which the cumulative effect of initially applying Topic 606 is recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the first quarter of 2018.
The Company is concluding the assessment phase of implementing Topic 606. The Company has evaluated each of the five steps in Topic 606, which are as follows: 1) Identify the contract with the customer; 2) Identify the performance obligations in the contract; 3) Determine the transaction price; 4) Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations; and 5) Recognize revenue when (or as) performance obligations are satisfied. The Company expects to identify similar performance obligations under Topic 606, as compared with deliverables and separate units of account previously identified. As a result, the adoption of Topic 606 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations and consolidated financial statements. However, disclosure requirements under the new guidance in Topic 606 have been significantly expanded in comparison to the disclosure requirements under the current guidance.
There are also certain considerations related to internal control over financial reporting that are associated with implementing Topic 606. The Company is currently evaluating its control framework for revenue recognition and identifying any changes that may need to be made in response to the new guidance. Designing and implementing the appropriate controls over gathering and reporting the information required under Topic 606 is currently in process.
In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes. This guidance requires that entities with a classified statement of financial position present all deferred tax assets and liabilities as non-current. This update was adopted during the first quarter of 2017 and applied on the retrospective basis. Other than the netting of current deferred tax assets of $5.6 million, which increased long-term deferred tax assets from $16.0 million to $21.6 million as of December 31, 2016, the adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations and consolidated financial statements.
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. This update amends the guidance in U.S. GAAP on the classification and measurement of financial instruments. Although the ASU retains many current requirements, it significantly revises an entity’s accounting related to (1) the classification and measurement of investments in equity securities and (2) the presentation of certain fair value changes for financial liabilities measured at fair value. The ASU also amends certain disclosure requirements associated with the fair value of financial instruments. This update is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations, consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842): Accounting for Leases. This update specifies that lessees should recognize assets and liabilities arising from all leases, except for leases with a lease term of 12 months or less. The recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee will largely remain unchanged and shall continue to depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The ASU will be effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this ASU is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations; however, it is expected to gross-up the consolidated balance sheet as a result of recognizing a lease asset along with a similar lease liability.
In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. This update amends the scope of modification accounting surrounding share-based payment arrangements as issued in ASU 2016-09 by providing guidance on the various types of changes which would trigger modification accounting for share-based payment awards. ASU 2017-09 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in any interim period, for public business entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been issued. While the Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2017-09 to have a material effect on its business, the Company is still evaluating any potential impact that adoption of ASU 2017-09 may have on its results of operations, consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.
The entire disclosure for the general note to the financial statements for the reporting entity which may include, descriptions of the basis of presentation, business description, significant accounting policies, consolidations, reclassifications, new pronouncements not yet adopted and changes in accounting principles.
