NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1. Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:
Description of Business
The use of the terms “CEC Entertainment,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” throughout these unaudited notes to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements refer to CEC Entertainment, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
We currently operate and franchise Chuck E. Cheese’s and Peter Piper Pizza family dining and entertainment venues in a total of 47 states and 13 foreign countries and territories. Our venues provide our guests with a variety of family entertainment and dining alternatives. All of our venues utilize a consistent restaurant-entertainment format that features both family dining and entertainment areas with a mix of food, entertainment and merchandise. The economic characteristics, products and services, preparation processes, distribution methods and types of customers are substantially similar for each of our venues. Therefore, we aggregate each venue’s operating performance into one reportable segment for financial reporting purposes.
Basis of Presentation
The Company has a controlling financial interest in International Association of CEC Entertainment, Inc. (the “Association”), a variable interest entity (“VIE”). The Association primarily administers the collection and disbursement of funds (the “Association Funds”) used for advertising, entertainment and media programs that benefit both us and our Chuck E. Cheese’s franchisees. We and our franchisees are required to contribute a percentage of gross sales to these funds and could be required to make additional contributions to fund any deficits that may be incurred by the Association. We include the Association in our Consolidated Financial Statements, as we concluded that we are the primary beneficiary of its variable interests because we (a) have the power to direct the majority of its significant operating activities; (b) provide it unsecured lines of credit; and (c) own the majority of the venues that benefit from the Association’s advertising, entertainment and media expenditures. The assets, liabilities and operating results of the Association are not material to our Consolidated Financial Statements.
Because the Association Funds are required to be segregated and used for specified purposes, we do not reflect franchisee contributions to the Association Funds as revenue, but rather record franchisee contributions as an offset to reported advertising expenses. Our contributions to the Association Funds are eliminated in consolidation. Contributions to the advertising, entertainment and media funds from our franchisees were $1.7 million for both the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively. Cash balances held by the Association are restricted for use in our advertising, entertainment and media programs, and are recorded as “Restricted cash” on our Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The preparation of these unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“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 our unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Interim Financial Statements
The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the three and nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016 are unaudited and are presented in accordance with the requirements for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and, consequently, do not include all of the information and footnote disclosures required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, the Consolidated Financial Statements include all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair statement of its consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows as of the dates and for the periods presented in accordance with GAAP and the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). All intercompany accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.
Consolidated results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 1, 2017, filed with the SEC on March 16, 2017.

Recently Issued Accounting Guidance
Accounting Guidance Adopted:
Effective January 2, 2017 we adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2015-11, Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory. This amendment requires entities to measure most inventory at the “lower of cost or net realizable value,” thereby simplifying the former guidance under which entities measured inventory at the lower of cost or market (market in this context was defined as one of three different measures, one of which was net realizable value). The adoption of this amendment did not have a significant impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
Effective January 2, 2017 we adopted ASU 2016-09, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718). This amendment requires that (i) all excess tax benefits and deficiencies (including tax benefits of dividends on share-based payment awards) be recognized as income tax expense or benefit on the income statement, (ii) the tax effects of exercised or vested awards be treated as discrete items in the reporting period in which they occur, and (iii) an entity recognize excess tax benefits regardless of whether the benefit reduces taxes payable in the current period or not. On the statement of cash flows excess tax benefits are classified along with other income tax cash flows as an operating activity. As allowed by the amendment we have elected to account for forfeitures when they occur. The threshold for an award to qualify for equity classification permits withholding up to the maximum statutory tax rate in applicable jurisdictions, and the cash paid by an employer when directly withholding shares for tax-withholding purposes should be classified as a financing activity on the statement of cash flows. The adoption of this amendment did not have a significant impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted:
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This new standard introduces a new lease model that requires the recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and the disclosure of key information about leasing arrangements. While this new standard retains most of the principles of the existing lessor model under U.S. GAAP, it aligns many of those principles with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606: Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The new guidance will be effective for us beginning on December 31, 2018. Early adoption will be permitted for all entities. We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this guidance on our Consolidated Financial Statements, but we expect this will have a material effect on our balance sheet since the Company has a significant amount of operating and capital lease arrangements.
In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing. This amendment updates the revenue guidance on identifying performance obligations and accounting for licenses of intellectual property, changing the FASB's previous proposals on right-of-use licenses and contractual restrictions. For an entity that licenses intellectual property, the amount or timing of revenue recognition and the timing and pattern of revenue recognition for intellectual property licenses, including the application of the sale- and usage-based royalties exception, may be significantly different from current practice. We are currently in the process of completing our assessment of all potential impacts of this amendment on our revenues, including: (i) our accounting for franchise and development fees, and (ii) accounting for our national advertising costs under the Association Funds. Specifically, we expect the adoption of this amendment will require us to recognize initial and renewal franchise and development fees on a straight-line basis over the life of the franchise agreement. Historically, we have recognized revenue from initial franchise and development fees upon the opening of a franchised restaurant when we have completed all of our material obligations and initial services. Additionally, we expect to account for our national advertising fund revenues on a gross basis, instead of net. We do not expect the impact of recognizing initial franchise fees over the franchise agreement period and recognizing advertising expense upon adoption of this standard to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements. We have determined that this amendment will not have an impact on our recognition of revenue related to our franchise royalties, which are based on a percentage of franchise sales and revenue from Company-operated venues. We will adopt the guidance in this amendment beginning with our fiscal first quarter 2018 and will apply the guidance using the modified retrospective method, recognizing the cumulative effect of applying the new standard to new contracts and contracts that are not considered completed as of January 1, 2018, with no restatement of the comparative periods presented.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business (Topic 805). The amendments in this update clarify the definition of a business to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or businesses. The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting, including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill and consolidation. This ASU will be effective for us for annual and interim reporting periods beginning on January 1, 2018. We do not expect the adoption of this amendment to have a significant impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. This amendment eliminates Step 2, which measures a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill, from the goodwill impairment test. Instead, under the amendments in this ASU, an entity should perform its annual, or interim, goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An entity should recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. However, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. Additionally, an entity should consider income tax effects from any tax deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. This ASU is effective for us for our annual or any interim goodwill impairment test in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 and will be applied on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. We do not expect the adoption of this amendment to have a significant impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). This amendment expands and refines hedge accounting for both nonfinancial and financial risk components and aligns the recognition and presentation of the effects of the hedging instrument and the hedged item in the financial statements. It also includes certain targeted improvements to simplify the application of current guidance related to hedge accounting. This ASU will be effective for us for annual and interim reporting periods beginning on December 31, 2019, with early adoption permitted. We do not expect the adoption of this amendment to have a significant impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
2. Property and Equipment:
Total depreciation and amortization expense was $27.1 million and $29.9 million for the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, of which $1.8 million and $2.2 million, respectively, was included in “General and administrative expenses” in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Total depreciation and amortization expense was $83.1 million and $90.2 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, of which $5.6 million and $5.1 million, respectively, was included in “General and administrative expenses” in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Asset Impairments
During the three and nine months ended October 1, 2017, we recognized asset impairment charges of $1.8 million primarily related to five stores. During the three and nine months ended October 2, 2016, we recognized asset impairment charges of $0.8 million primarily related to four stores. These impairment charges were the result of a decline in the stores’ financial performance, primarily related to various economic factors in the markets in which the stores are located. As of October 1, 2017, the aggregate remaining carrying value of the property and equipment at the venues impaired in 2017, after the impairment charges, was $1.6 million.

In connection with the Merger, as defined in Note 12 “Consolidating Guarantor Financial Information”, and the acquisition of Peter Piper Pizza in October 2014, we also recorded unfavorable lease liabilities of $10.2 million and $3.9 million, respectively, which are included in “Other current liabilities” and “Other noncurrent liabilities” in our Consolidated Balance Sheets. Such amounts are being amortized over a weighted average life of 10 years, and are included in “Rent expense” in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Amortization expense related to favorable lease agreements was $0.4 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, and $1.3 million and $1.5 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, and is included in “Rent expense” in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings. Amortization expense related to franchise agreements was $0.5 million for both the three months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, and $1.5 million for both the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, and is included in “General and administrative expenses” in our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

We were in compliance with the debt covenants in effect as of October 1, 2017 for both the secured credit facilities and the senior notes. For further discussion regarding the debt covenants, see Secured Credit Facilities and Senior Unsecured Notes sections below.
Secured Credit Facilities
Our secured credit facilities include (i) a $760.0 million term loan facility with a maturity date of February 14, 2021 (the “term loan facility”) and (ii) a $150.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility with a maturity date of February 14, 2019, which includes a letter of credit sub-facility and a $30.0 million swingline loan sub-facility (the “revolving credit facility” and together with the term loan facility, the “secured credit facilities”). The secured credit facilities require scheduled quarterly payments on the term loan facility equal to 0.25% of the original principal amount of the term loan facility from July 2014 to December 2020, with the remaining balance paid at maturity, February 14, 2021. As of October 1, 2017 and January 1, 2017, we had no borrowings outstanding and $9.9 million of letters of credit issued but undrawn under the revolving credit facility.
The term loan was issued net of $3.8 million of original issue discount. We also paid $17.8 million and $3.4 million in debt financing costs related to the term loan facility and revolving credit facility, respectively, which we capitalized in “Bank indebtedness and other long-term debt, net of deferred financing costs” on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. The original issue discount and deferred financing costs are amortized over the lives of the facilities and are included in “Interest expense” on our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Borrowings under the secured credit facilities bear interest at a rate equal to, at our option, either (a) a London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) determined by reference to the costs of funds for Eurodollar deposits for the interest period relevant to such borrowings, adjusted for certain additional costs, subject to a 1.00% floor in the case of term loans or (b) a base rate determined by reference to the highest of (i) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%; (ii) the prime rate of Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch; and (iii) the one-month adjusted LIBOR plus 1.00%, in each case plus an applicable margin. The base applicable margin is 3.25% with respect to LIBOR borrowings and 2.25% with respect to base rate borrowings under the
term loan facility and base rate borrowings and swingline borrowings under the revolving credit facility. The applicable margin
for LIBOR borrowings under the term loan facility was subject to one step-down from 3.25% to 3.00% based on our net first lien senior secured leverage ratio and the applicable margin for LIBOR borrowings under the revolving credit facility was subject to two step-downs from 3.25% to 3.00% and 2.75% based on our net first lien senior secured leverage ratio. Effective March 4, 2016, the applicable margin for both our term loan facility and revolving credit facilities stepped down to 3.0%. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the applicable margin for LIBOR borrowings under both the term loan facility and the revolving credit facility will return to their previous level of 3.25%.
During the nine months ended October 1, 2017, the federal funds rate ranged from 0.55% to 1.16%, the prime rate ranged from 3.75% to 4.25% and the one-month LIBOR ranged from 0.76% to 1.24% .
The weighted average effective interest rate incurred on our borrowings under our secured credit facilities was 4.7% and 4.6% for the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, respectively, which includes amortization of debt

12

issuance costs related to our secured credit facilities, amortization of our term loan facility original issue discount and commitment and other fees related to our secured credit facilities.
In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the secured credit facilities, we are required to pay a commitment fee to the lenders under the revolving credit facility with respect to the unutilized commitments thereunder. The base applicable commitment fee rate under the revolving credit facility was 0.50% per annum and was subject to one step-down from 0.50% to 0.375% based on our net first lien senior secured leverage ratio. Effective March 4, 2016, the commitment fee rate stepped down to 0.375%. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the commitment fee rate will return to it previous level of 0.50%. We are also required to pay customary agency fees, as well as letter of credit participation fees computed at a rate per annum equal to the applicable margin for LIBOR rate borrowings on the dollar equivalent of the daily stated amount of outstanding letters of credit, plus such letter of credit issuer’s customary documentary and processing fees and charges and a fronting fee computed at a rate equal to 0.125% per annum on the daily stated amount of such letter of credit.
All obligations under the secured credit facilities are unconditionally guaranteed by our Parent on a limited-recourse basis and each of our existing and future direct and indirect material, wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions. The obligations are secured by a pledge of our capital stock and substantially all of our assets and those of each subsidiary guarantor, including capital stock of the subsidiary guarantors and 65% of the capital stock of the first-tier foreign subsidiaries that are not subsidiary guarantors, in each case subject to exceptions. Such security interests consist of first priority liens with respect to the collateral.
The secured credit facilities also contain customary affirmative and negative covenants, and events of default, which limit our ability to, among other things: incur additional debt or issue certain preferred shares; create liens on certain assets; make certain loans or investments (including acquisitions); pay dividends on or make distributions with respect to our capital stock or make other restricted payments; consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets; sell assets; enter into certain transactions with our affiliates; enter into sale-leaseback transactions; change our lines of business; restrict dividends from our subsidiaries or restrict liens; change our fiscal year; and modify the terms of certain debt or organizational agreements.
Our revolving credit facility includes a springing financial maintenance covenant that requires our net first lien senior secured leverage ratio not to exceed 6.25 to 1.00 (the ratio of consolidated net debt secured by first-priority liens on the collateral to the last twelve months’ EBITDA, as defined in the senior credit facilities). The covenant will be tested quarterly if the revolving credit facility is more than 30% drawn (excluding outstanding letters of credit) and will be a condition to drawings under the revolving credit facility that would result in more than 30% drawn thereunder.
Senior Unsecured Debt
Our senior unsecured debt consists of $255.0 million aggregate principal amount borrowings of 8.000% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “senior notes”). The senior notes bear interest at a rate 8.000% per year and mature on February 15, 2022. We may redeem some or all of the senior notes at certain redemption prices set forth in the indenture governing the senior notes (the “indenture”).
We paid $6.4 million in debt issuance costs related to the senior notes, which we capitalized in “Bank indebtedness and other long-term debt, net of deferred financing costs” on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. The deferred financing costs are being amortized over the life of the senior notes and are included in “Interest expense” on our Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Our obligations under the senior notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, by our present and future direct and indirect wholly-owned material domestic subsidiaries that guarantee our secured credit facilities.
The indenture contains restrictive covenants that limit our ability to, among other things: (i) incur additional debt or issue certain preferred shares; (ii) create liens on certain assets; make certain loans or investments (including acquisitions); (iii) pay dividends on or make distributions in respect of our capital stock or make other restricted payments; (iv) consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets; (v) sell assets; (vi) enter into certain transactions with our affiliates; and (vii) restrict dividends from our subsidiaries.
The weighted average effective interest rate incurred on borrowings under our senior notes was 8.2% for the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and 8.3% for the nine months ended October 2, 2016, which included amortization of debt issuance costs and other fees related to our senior notes.

6. Fair Value of Financial Instruments:
Fair value measurements of financial instruments are determined based on the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. As a basis for considering market participant assumptions in fair value measurements, a fair value hierarchy that distinguishes between market participant assumptions based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity (observable inputs that are classified within Levels 1 and 2 of the hierarchy) and the reporting entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions (unobservable inputs classified within Level 3 of the hierarchy) has been established.

(1)    Excluding net deferred financing costs.

Our financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, our secured credit facilities and our senior notes. The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximates fair value because of their short maturities. The estimated fair value of our secured credit facilities, term loan facility and senior notes was determined by using the respective average of the ask and bid price of our outstanding borrowings under our term loan facility and the senior notes as of the nearest open market date preceding the reporting period end. The average of the ask and bid price are classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Our non-financial assets, which include long-lived assets, including property, plant and equipment, goodwill and intangible assets, are reported at carrying value and are not required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis. However, on a periodic basis, or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying value may not be recoverable, we assess our long-lived assets for impairment.
During the nine months ended October 1, 2017 and October 2, 2016, there were no significant transfers among Level 1, 2 or 3 fair value determinations.

See Note 8 “Sale Leaseback Transaction” for further discussion on the sale leaseback transaction completed in the nine months ended October 1, 2017.
Note 8. Sale Leaseback Transaction:
On April 25, 2017, we closed a sale leaseback transaction with NADG NNN Acquisitions, Inc. (“NADG NNN”). Pursuant to the sale leaseback transaction, we sold our property located in Conyers, Georgia to NADG NNN, and we leased the property back from NADG NNN pursuant to a master lease on a triple-net basis for its continued use as Chuck-E-Cheese’s family dining and entertainment venue. The lease has an initial term of 20 years, with four five-year options to renew. For accounting purposes, this sale-leaseback transaction is accounted for under the financing method rather than as a completed

sale. Under the financing method, we (i) include the sales proceeds received in other long-term liabilities until our continuing involvement with the properties is terminated, (ii) report the associated property as owned assets, (iii) continue to depreciate the assets over their remaining useful lives, and (iv) record the rental payments as interest expense and a reduction of the sale leaseback obligation. When and if our continuing involvement with a property terminates and the sale of that property is recognized for accounting purposes, we expect to record a gain equal to the excess of the proceeds received over the remaining net book value of the property. The aggregate purchase price for the property in connection with the sale leaseback transaction was approximately $4.1 million million in cash, and the net proceeds realized were approximately $3.9 million.

_________________
(1)    Including foreign taxes withheld.
Our effective income tax rate for the three and nine months ended October 1, 2017 differs from the statutory rate primarily due to the favorable impact of employment related federal income tax credits offset by the unfavorable impact of a true-up related to prior year’s estimate of employment related tax credits versus actuals, the negative impact of non-deductible litigation costs related to the Merger (see Note 12 “Consolidating Guarantor Financial Information” for a definition of the Merger), non-deductible Canadian interest expense, and unfavorable adjustments to our deferred tax liability resulting from changes to state income tax apportionment factors and rates.
Our effective income tax rate for the three and nine months ended October 2, 2016 differs from the statutory rate primarily due to the favorable impact of employment related federal income tax credits, the impact in of a true-up to the prior year’s estimated tax provision versus actuals, offset by the negative impact of non-deductible litigation costs related to the Merger (see Note 12 “Consolidating Guarantor Financial Information” for a definition of the Merger), non-deductible Canadian interest expense, and an increase in the liability for uncertain tax positions.
For the periods presented herein, we have used the year-to-date effective tax rate (the “discrete method”), as prescribed by ASC 740-270, Accounting for Income Taxes-Interim Reporting when a reliable estimate of the estimated annual rate cannot be made. We believe at this time, the use of the discrete method is more appropriate than the annual effective tax rate method due to significant variations in the customary relationship between income tax expense and projected annual pre-tax income or loss which occurs when annual projected pre-tax income or loss nears a relatively small amount in comparison to the differences between income and deductions determined for financial statement purposes versus income tax purposes. Using the discrete method, we have determined our current and deferred income tax expense as if the interim period were an annual period.
Our liability for uncertain tax positions (excluding interest and penalties) was $3.0 million and $3.1 million as of October 1, 2017 and January 1, 2017, respectively, and if recognized would decrease our provision for income taxes by $1.5 million. Within the next twelve months, we could settle or otherwise conclude income tax audits. As such, it is reasonably possible that the liability for uncertain tax positions could decrease by as much as $1.0 million as a result of settlements with certain taxing authorities and expiring statutes of limitations within the next twelve months.

Total accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as of October 1, 2017 and January 1, 2017, was $1.3 million and $1.2 million, respectively. On the Consolidated Balance Sheets, we include current interest related to unrecognized tax benefits in “Accrued interest,” current penalties in “Accrued expenses” and noncurrent accrued interest and penalties in “Other noncurrent liabilities.”
10. Stock-Based Compensation Arrangements:
