Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

1. Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Business & Basis of Presentation

We prepared the condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 of Select Comfort Corporation and 100%-owned subsidiaries (Select Comfort or the Company), without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and they reflect, in the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, and the consolidated results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Our historical and quarterly consolidated results of operations may not be indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full year or any future period.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our most recent audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 and other recent filings with the SEC.

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of sales, expenses and income taxes during the reporting period. Predicting future events is inherently an imprecise activity and, as such, requires the use of judgment. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results could differ significantly from these estimates. Changes in these estimates will be reflected in the consolidated financial statements in future periods. Our critical accounting policies consist of stock-based compensation, goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets, warranty liabilities and revenue recognition.

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Select Comfort Corporation and our 100%-owned subsidiaries. All significant intra-entity balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Revenue Recognition

At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we had deferred revenue totaling $71 million and $61 million, of which $28 million and $21 million are included in other current liabilities, respectively, and $43 million and $40 million are included in other non-current liabilities, respectively, in our consolidated balance sheets. We also have related deferred costs totaling $41 million and $33 million, of which $16 million and $11 million are included in other current assets, respectively, and $25 million and $22 million are included in other non-current assets, respectively, in our consolidated balance sheets. The deferred revenue and costs are recognized over the product’s estimated life of four years.

New Accounting Pronouncements
  
Adopted

In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued new guidance on the accounting for, and disclosure of, stock-based compensation which we adopted effective January 1, 2017. The new guidance is intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for stock-based compensation arrangements, including the income tax impact, forfeitures and classification on the statement of cash flows. Under the previous guidance, excess tax benefits and deficiencies were recognized in additional paid-in capital in the consolidated balance sheets. Upon adoption of the new guidance, these excess tax benefits or deficiencies are required to be recognized as discrete adjustments to income tax expense in the consolidated statements of operations on a prospective basis. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, excess tax benefits of $0.2 million and $1.4 million, respectively, were recognized as a reduction of income tax expense, rather than in additional paid-in capital.

In addition, under the new guidance, excess income tax benefits from stock-based compensation arrangements are classified as an operating activity in the statement of cash flows rather than as a financing activity. This resulted in an increase to operating cash flows of $0.2 million and $2.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively. We elected to apply the new cash flow classification guidance prospectively. The prior-year statement of cash flows has not been adjusted.

AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)



We have also elected to continue to estimate the number of stock-based awards expected to vest, as permitted by the new guidance, rather than electing to account for forfeitures as they occur.

Not Yet Adopted

In May 2014, the FASB issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that requires a company to recognize revenue in a manner that depicts the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. This new guidance will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2018. Companies may use either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective approach to adopt this new guidance. When we adopt this new guidance, we expect to use the modified retrospective approach which will result in an adjustment to opening retained earnings, but would not restate prior periods' financial statements. Based on our analysis thus far, we believe the impact of adopting the new guidance will not be material to our consolidated financial statements. As interpretations of the new rules continue to evolve in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, we will monitor developments and will finalize our conclusions on our revenue recognition policy, disclosure requirements and changes that may be necessary to our internal controls over financial reporting.

In February 2016, the FASB issued new guidance on accounting for leases that generally requires most leases to be recognized on the balance sheet. This new guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The provisions of this new guidance are to be applied using a modified retrospective approach, with elective reliefs, which requires application of the new guidance for all periods presented. We are evaluating the effect of the new standard on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. This new guidance is effective for us beginning December 30, 2018.

2. Fair Value Measurements

At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we had $3.4 million and $2.3 million, respectively, of debt and equity securities that fund our deferred compensation plan and are classified in other non-current assets. We also had corresponding deferred compensation plan liabilities of $3.4 million and $2.3 million at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, which are included in other non-current liabilities. The majority of the debt and equity securities are Level 1 as they trade with sufficient frequency and volume to enable us to obtain pricing information on an ongoing basis. Unrealized gains/(losses) on the debt and equity securities offset those associated with the corresponding deferred compensation plan liabilities.

5. Credit Agreement
  
In March 2017, we amended our revolving credit facility to increase our net aggregate availability from $150 million to $153 million. We maintained the accordion feature which allows us to increase the amount of the credit facility from $153 million to $200 million, subject to lenders' approval. There were no other changes to the credit agreement's terms and conditions.

The credit facility is for general corporate purposes and is utilized to meet our seasonal working capital requirements. The credit facility matures in February 2021. The credit agreement provides the lenders with a collateral security interest in substantially all of our assets and those of our subsidiaries and requires us to comply with, among other things, a maximum leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. Under the terms of the credit agreement we pay a variable rate of interest and a commitment fee based on our leverage ratio.

As of September 30, 2017, we had no outstanding borrowings and $3.15 million in outstanding letters of credit. Our borrowing capacity was $150 million. We were in compliance with all financial covenants.

There is no expiration date governing the period over which we can repurchase shares. Any repurchased shares are constructively retired and returned to an unissued status. The cost of stock repurchases is first charged to additional paid-in capital. Once additional paid-in capital is reduced to zero, any additional amounts are charged to retained earnings.

In addition to the income tax benefit related to stock-based compensation expense in the table above, excess tax benefits of $0.2 million and $1.4 million were recognized as reductions of income tax expense during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively. There were no excess tax benefits recognized in income tax expense during the three and nine months ended October 1, 2016. See Note 1, New Accounting Pronouncements, for additional discussion of new guidance on the accounting for, and disclosure of, stock-based compensation which we adopted effective January 1, 2017.
 
8. Profit Sharing and 401(k) Plan

Under our profit sharing and 401(k) plan, eligible employees may defer up to 50% of their compensation on a pre-tax basis, subject to Internal Revenue Service limitations. Each pay period, we may make a discretionary contribution equal to a percentage of the employee’s contribution. During the three months ended September 30, 2017 and October 1, 2016, our contributions, net of forfeitures, were $1.4 million and $1.1 million, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and October 1, 2016, our contributions, net of forfeitures, were $3.9 million and $3.4 million, respectively.

Legal Proceedings
   
We are involved from time to time in various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of our business, including primarily commercial, product liability, employment and intellectual property claims. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, we record a liability in our consolidated financial statements with respect to any of these matters when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated. With respect to currently pending legal proceedings, we have not established an estimated range of reasonably possible additional losses either because we believe that we have valid defenses to claims asserted against us or the proceeding has not advanced to a stage of discovery that would enable us to establish an estimate. We currently do not expect the outcome of these matters to have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Litigation, however, is inherently unpredictable, and it is possible that the ultimate outcome of one or more claims asserted against us could adversely impact our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. We expense legal costs as incurred.

On January 12, 2015, Plaintiffs David and Katina Spade commenced a purported class action lawsuit in New Jersey state court against Select Comfort alleging that Select Comfort violated New Jersey consumer statutes by failing to provide to purchasing consumers certain disclosures required by the New Jersey Furniture Regulations. It is undisputed that plaintiffs suffered no actual damages or in any way relied upon or were impacted by the alleged omissions. Nonetheless, on behalf of a purported class of New Jersey purchasers of Select Comfort beds and bases, plaintiffs seek to recover a $100 statutory fine for each alleged omission, along with attorneys’ fees and costs. Select Comfort removed the case to the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, which subsequently granted Select Comfort’s motion to dismiss. Plaintiffs appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which has certified two questions of law to the New Jersey Supreme Court relating to whether plaintiffs who have suffered no actual injury may bring claims. The New Jersey Supreme Court has accepted the certified questions and oral arguments are expected to be heard in the near future. As the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey determined, we believe that the case is without merit and the order of dismissal should be affirmed.

Risk Factors
  
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes thereto included herein. This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains certain forward-looking statements that relate to future plans, events, financial results or performance. You can identify forward-looking statements by those that are not historical in nature, particularly those that use terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “predict,” “intend,” “potential,” “continue” or the negative of these or similar terms. These statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections.
  
These risks and uncertainties include, among others:
  
Current and future general and industry economic trends and consumer confidence;
The effectiveness of our marketing messages;
The efficiency of our advertising and promotional efforts;
Our ability to execute our Company-Controlled distribution strategy;
Our ability to achieve and maintain acceptable levels of product and service quality, and acceptable product return and warranty claims rates;
Our ability to continue to improve and expand our product line, and consumer acceptance of our products, product quality, innovation and brand image;
Industry competition, the emergence of additional competitive products and the adequacy of our intellectual property rights to protect our products and brand from competitive or infringing activities;
The potential for claims that our products, processes or trademarks infringe the intellectual property rights of others;
Availability of attractive and cost-effective consumer credit options;
Our “just-in-time” manufacturing processes with minimal levels of inventory, which may leave us vulnerable to shortages in supply;
Our dependence on significant suppliers and our ability to maintain relationships with key suppliers, including several sole-source suppliers;
Rising commodity costs and other inflationary pressures;
Risks inherent in global sourcing activities, including the potential for shortages in supply;
Risks of disruption in the operation of either of our two main manufacturing facilities;
Increasing government regulation;
Pending or unforeseen litigation and the potential for adverse publicity associated with litigation;
The adequacy of our management information systems to meet the evolving needs of our business and existing and evolving regulatory standards applicable to data privacy and security;
The costs and potential disruptions to our business related to upgrading our management information systems;
The vulnerability of our management information systems to attacks by hackers or other cyber threats that could compromise the security of our systems or disrupt our business;
Our ability to attract, retain and motivate qualified management, executive and other key employees, including qualified retail sales professionals and managers; and
Uncertainties arising from global events, such as terrorist attacks or a pandemic outbreak, or the threat of such events.
  
Additional information concerning these and other risks and uncertainties is contained under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Company Overview

We are executing a consumer innovation strategy with three significant competitive advantages as we work toward our ambitious vision to become one of the world's most beloved brands by delivering an unparalleled sleep experience. We offer consumers high-quality, individualized sleep solutions and services, which include a complete line of Sleep Number® beds, bases and bedding accessories. Our competitive advantages are: proprietary sleep innovations, exclusive distribution and lifelong customer relationships.

We are a vertically integrated brand and the developer, manufacturer, marketer, retailer and servicer of a complete line of Sleep Number beds and related technology. We are also the pioneer in biometric sleep tracking and adjustability. Only the Sleep Number bed offers SleepIQ® technology - proprietary sensor technology that works directly with the bed’s DualAir™ system to track each individual’s sleep. SleepIQ technology communicates how you slept and what adjustments you can make to optimize your sleep and improve your daily life. Our bed assortment is complemented with proprietary FlextFit™ adjustable bases, and Sleep Number® pillows, sheets and other bedding products. In May 2017, we began selling certain models of our Sleep Number 360™ smart bed line.

Our differentiated products are sold exclusively at more than 550 Sleep Number® stores located in 49 states, online at SleepNumber.com or via phone. We offer consumers a unique, value-added store and digital experience through our team of over 3,800 individuals who are dedicated to our mission of improving lives by individualizing sleep experiences. This experience, combined with the advantages of our vertical business model and SleepIQ technology, enable a lifelong relationship with our customers. We generate revenue by marketing and selling products directly to new and existing customers.

We expect our business transformation over the past five years to result in improved profitability through the productivity and service advancements associated with our integrated ERP platform, smart bed design, more efficient manufacturing and supply chain network. In 2017, we began evolving our supply chain including the transition of more than 20 suppliers with whom we are partnering with to support our innovations and profitability goals. Changes to the supply chain also include in-hub assembly of our new 360 smart beds and optimization of our outbound logistics network. These multi-year initiatives, coupled with our innovations, are expected to drive accelerated profits and cash flows over time.
 
We are committed to delivering superior shareholder value through three primary drivers of earnings per share growth: increasing consumer demand, leveraging the business model and deploying capital efficiently. The investments we have made in R&D, technology, digital and our store experience have strengthened our competitive advantages and established our innovation leadership. We have a long-term orientation and are focused on delivering sustainable, profitable growth.

Results of Operations

Quarterly and Year-to-Date Results

Quarterly and year-to-date operating results may fluctuate significantly as a result of a variety of factors, including increases or decreases in sales, the timing, amount and effectiveness of advertising expenditures, changes in sales return rates or warranty experience, timing of investments in growth initiatives and infrastructure, timing of store openings/closings and related expenses, changes in net sales resulting from changes in our store base, the timing of new product introductions, the timing of promotional offerings, competitive factors, changes in commodity costs, any disruptions in supplies or third-party service providers, seasonality of retail and bedding industry sales, consumer confidence and general economic conditions. Therefore, our historical results of operations may not be indicative of the results that may be achieved for any future period.

Highlights
  
Financial highlights for the period ended September 30, 2017 were as follows:
       
Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2017 increased 9% to $403 million, compared with $368 million for the same period one year ago. Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were affected by: (i) an approximately $25 million shift in sales from our second quarter to our third quarter as a result of a delay in deliveries and shipments related to an inventory shortage from one of our new suppliers (this delay has been resolved and we don't expect a shortage in the future), and (ii) temporary disruptions from hurricanes during our Labor Day sales event that reduced third quarter net sales by an estimated $12 to $15 million.

14


The 9% sales increase was driven by 6 percentage points (ppt.) of growth from sales generated by 26 net new stores opened in the past 12 months and a 5% comparable sales increase in our Company-Controlled channel, partially offset by a decrease in our Wholesale/Other channel sales.
Sales per store (for stores open at least one year) on a trailing twelve-month basis for the period ended September 30, 2017 were $2.4 million, up 5% from $2.2 million in the prior-year comparable period.
In May 2017, we began selling our Sleep Number 360™ i7 and i10 smart beds. The Sleep Number 360 smart bed won 13 awards at CES, including being named the Best of Innovation Honoree in the Home Appliance category. We plan to launch a third smart bed model (the p6) in the fourth quarter, and remain on track to complete the phased implementation of our 360 smart bed line by the first half of next year.
Operating income for the quarter totaled $39 million, consistent with the same period one year ago. Our operating income rate decreased to 9.7% of net sales, compared with 10.6% of net sales for the same period last year. The decrease in operating income rate primarily resulted from transition costs associated with the launch of our Sleep Number 360 smart beds and the evolution of our supply chain.
Net income for the quarter was $25.6 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, compared with $25.7 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for the same period one year ago.
Cash provided by operating activities totaled $176 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $145 million for the same period one year ago. Investing activities for the current-year period included $38 million of property and equipment purchases, compared with $39 million for the same period last year.
At September 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents totaled $30 million and we ended the quarter with no borrowings under our $153 million revolving credit facility. We utilize our credit facility to meet our seasonal working capital requirements.
In the third quarter of 2017, we repurchased 1.3 million shares of our common stock under our Board-approved share repurchase program at a cost of $40 million (an average of $31.18 per share). Effective as of October 1, 2017, our Board approved an increase in our total remaining share repurchase authorization to $500 million.
    
The following table sets forth our results of operations expressed as dollars and percentages of net sales. Figures are in millions, except percentages and per share amounts. Amounts may not add due to rounding differences.

Comparison of Three Months Ended September 30, 2017 with Three Months Ended October 1, 2016

Net sales
Net sales increased 9% to $403 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $368 million for the same period one year ago. Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were affected by: (i) an approximately $25 million shift in sales from our second quarter to our third quarter as a result of a delay in deliveries and shipments related to an inventory shortage from one of our new suppliers (this delay has been resolved and we don't expect a shortage in the future); and (ii) temporary disruptions from hurricanes during our Labor Day sales event that reduced third quarter net sales by an estimated $12 to $15 million. The 9% sales increase was driven by 6 percentage points (ppt.) of growth from sales generated by 26 net new stores opened in the past 12 months and a 5% comparable sales increase in our Company-Controlled channel; partially offset by a decrease in our Wholesale/Other channel sales.
 
The $35 million net sales increase compared with the same period one year ago was comprised of the following: (i) a $23 million increase resulting from net store openings; and (ii) a $17 million increase in sales from our Company-Controlled comparable sales; partially offset by (iii) a $5 million decrease in Wholesale/Other channel sales. Company-Controlled mattress unit sales were in line with the prior year. Average revenue per mattress unit in our Company-Controlled channel increased by 11% to $4,385.

Gross profit
Gross profit of $253 million increased by $21 million, or 9%, compared with $232 million for the same period one year ago. The gross profit rate was 62.9% of net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with 63.1% for the prior-year comparable period. The current-year gross profit rate decline of 0.2 ppt. was primarily due to margin pressures from weather-related excess freight and handling costs, and supplier transition costs, partially offset by a favorable product mix of Sleep Number 360™ smart beds and operating lean initiatives. In addition, our gross profit rate can fluctuate from quarter to quarter due to a variety of other factors, including warranty expenses, return and exchange costs, and performance-based incentive compensation.

Sales and marketing expenses
Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 increased to $175 million, or 43.4% of net sales, compared with $158 million, or 42.9% of net sales, for the same period one year ago. The 0.5 ppt. increase in the sales and marketing expense rate was mainly due to an increase in customer financing expenses, as a larger percentage of our customers took advantage of promotional financing offers, partially offset by 0.6 ppt. of leverage from media spending, which increased by 5% compared with the prior year, while net sales increased by 9%.

General and administrative expenses
General and administrative (G&A) expenses totaled $33 million, or 8.1% of net sales, for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $28 million, or 7.7% of net sales, in the prior-year period. The $4.4 million increase in G&A expenses consisted primarily of the following: (i) a $3.1 million increase in employee compensation, including a year-over-year increase in performance-based incentive compensation, enhanced digital marketing capabilities, and salary and wage rate increases that were in line with inflation; and (ii) a $1.3 million net increase in miscellaneous other expenses. The G&A expense rate increased by 0.4 ppt. in the current-year period compared with the same period one year ago due to the increase in expenses discussed above, partially offset by the leveraging impact of the 9% sales increase.

Research and development expenses
Research and development (R&D) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were $7 million consistent with the same period one year ago, but decreased to 1.7% of net sales from 1.9% of net sales, for the same period one year ago due to the leveraging effect of the 9% net sales increase. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the investment in product innovations is consistent with our current-year and long-term consumer innovation strategy.

Comparison of Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017 with Nine Months Ended October 1, 2016

Net sales
Net sales increased 8% to $1.08 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $998 million for the same period one year ago. The sales change was comprised of 8 percentage points (ppt.) of growth from sales generated by 26 net new stores opened in the past 12 months and a 2% comparable sales increase in our Company-Controlled channel, partially offset by a decrease in Wholesale/Other channel sales.
 
The $83 million net sales increase compared with the same period one year ago was comprised of the following: (i) a $76 million increase resulting from net store openings; and (ii) a $17 million increase in sales from our Company-Controlled comparable sales; partially offset by (iii) a $10 million decrease in Wholesale/Other channel sales. Company-Controlled mattress units increased 4% compared to the prior-year period. Average revenue per mattress unit in our Company-Controlled channel increased by 5%.

Gross profit
Gross profit of $677 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased by $64 million, or 10%, compared with the same period one year ago. The gross profit rate increased to 62.6% of net sales for the first nine months of 2017, compared with 61.4% for the prior-year period. The prior-year gross profit rate was negatively impacted by actions taken to manage operating issues associated with our ERP implementation during the first six months of 2016. The current-year gross profit rate improvement of 1.2 ppt. was primarily due to manufacturing and supply chain efficiencies, including lean initiatives, and lower sales return and exchange costs compared with the same period one year ago. In addition, our gross profit rate can fluctuate from quarter to quarter due to a variety of other factors, including warranty expenses, product mix changes and performance-based incentive compensation.

Sales and marketing expenses
Sales and marketing expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased to $489 million compared with $443 million for the same period one year ago, and increased to 45.2% of net sales compared with 44.4% of net sales last year. The 0.8 ppt. increase in the sales and marketing expense rate was mainly due to an increase in customer financing expenses, as a larger percentage of our customers took advantage of promotional financing offers, and an increase in selling compensation expense, including performance-based incentive compensation. These increases were partially offset by leverage from media spending, which increased by 4% compared with the prior year, while net sales increased by 8%.
 
General and administrative expenses
General and administrative (G&A) expenses totaled $95 million, or 8.8% of net sales, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $86 million, or 8.6% of net sales, in the prior-year period. The $9 million increase in G&A expenses consisted primarily of the following: (i) a $4.0 million increase in employee compensation, including a year-over-year increase in company-wide performance-based incentive compensation, enhanced digital marketing capabilities, and salary and wage rate increases that were in line with inflation; (ii) $2.3 million of additional depreciation and amortization expense, including incremental depreciation expense from capital expenditures that support the growth of our business; and (iii) a $2.7 million net increase in miscellaneous other expenses. The G&A expense rate increased by 0.2 ppt. in the current-year period compared with the same period one year ago due to the increase in expenses discussed above, partially offset by the leveraging impact of the 8% sales increase.

Research and development expenses
Research and development (R&D) expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $21 million, or 1.9% of net sales, compared with $22 million, or 2.2% of net sales, for the same period one year ago. The $1 million decrease in R&D expenses was due to the timing of our investments to support product innovations. The investment spending year-to-date is consistent with our current-year and long-term consumer innovation strategy.

Income tax expense
Income tax expense was $22 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $21 million for the same period one year ago. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was 30.7% compared with 33.9% for the prior-year period. The effective tax rate for the current-year period benefited from: (i) stock-based compensation excess tax benefits in accordance with new Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidance effective for us beginning in 2017; and (ii) the recognition of additional tax credits. Under previous FASB guidance, excess tax benefits or deficiencies were recognized in additional paid-in capital in our consolidated balance sheet. See Note 1, New Accounting Pronouncements, in the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional details.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Managing our liquidity and capital resources is an important part of our commitment to deliver superior shareholder value. Our business model, which can operate with minimal working capital, does not require additional capital from external sources to fund operations or organic growth. Our primary sources of liquidity are cash flows provided by operating activities and cash available under our $153 million revolving credit facility. The cash generated from ongoing operations, and cash available under our revolving credit facility are expected to be adequate to maintain operations and fund anticipated expansion and strategic initiatives for the foreseeable future.

As of September 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents totaled $30 million compared with $12 million as of December 31, 2016. The $18 million increase was primarily due to $176 million of cash provided by operating activities, which was partially offset by $38 million of cash used to purchase property and equipment and $120 million of cash used to repurchase our common stock ($115 million under our Board-approved share repurchase program and $5 million in connection with the vesting of employee restricted stock grants).

The following table summarizes our cash flows (dollars in millions). Amounts may not add due to rounding differences:

Cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $176 million compared with $145 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2016. Significant components of the year-over-year change in cash provided by operating activities included: (i) a $9 million increase in net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with the same period one year ago; (ii) a $37 million fluctuation in customer prepayments resulting from higher than normal customer prepayments at January 2, 2016 (due to ERP implementation issues); (iii) a $31 million fluctuation in income taxes based on a $15 million income taxes receivable at January 2, 2016 (income taxes payable for comparable period); and (iv) the ERP implementation issues we experienced in our plants and supply chain during the fourth quarter of 2015 that resulted in increased accounts receivables, higher inventories, higher accounts payable, and lower other taxes and withholding at the end of 2015.
 
Net cash used in investing activities was $34 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $30 million of net cash used in investing activities for the same period one year ago. Investing activities for the current-year period included $38 million of property and equipment purchases, compared with $39 million for the same period last year. We decreased our investments in marketable debt securities by $9 million during the nine months ended October 1, 2016. We did not hold any investments in marketable debt securities as of December 31, 2016 or during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Net cash used in financing activities was $123 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $91 million for the same period one year ago. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we repurchased $120 million of our stock ($115 million under our Board-approved share repurchase program and $5 million in connection with the vesting of employee restricted stock awards) compared with $96 million ($95 million under our Board-approved share repurchase program and $1.4 million in connection with the vesting of employee restricted stock awards) during the same period one year ago. Short-term borrowings declined by $6 million during the current-year period primarily due to a decrease in book overdrafts which are included in the net change in short-term borrowings.

Under our Board-approved share repurchase program, we repurchased 4.3 million shares at a cost of $115 million (an average of $26.52 per share) during the nine months ended September 30, 2017. During the nine months ended October 1, 2016, we repurchased 4.6 million shares at a cost of $95 million (an average of $20.78 per share). Effective as of October 1, 2017, our Board approved an increase in our total remaining share repurchase authorization to $500 million. There is no expiration date governing the period over which we can repurchase shares.

In March 2017, we amended our revolving credit facility to increase our net aggregate availability from $150 million to $153 million. We maintained the accordion feature which allows us to increase the amount of the credit facility from $153 million to $200 million, subject to lenders' approval. There were no other changes to the credit agreement's terms and conditions.

19



The credit facility is for general corporate purposes and is utilized to meet our seasonal working capital requirements. The credit facility matures in February 2021. The credit agreement provides the lenders with a collateral security interest in substantially all of our assets and those of our subsidiaries and requires us to comply with, among other things, a maximum leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. Under the terms of the credit agreement we pay a variable rate of interest and a commitment fee based on our leverage ratio.

As of September 30, 2017, we had $3.15 million in outstanding letters of credit and no borrowings under credit facility. Our available borrowing capacity was $150 million. We were in compliance with all financial covenants.

We have an agreement with Synchrony Bank to offer qualified customers revolving credit arrangements to finance purchases from us (Synchrony Agreement). The Synchrony Agreement contains certain financial covenants, including a maximum leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. As of September 30, 2017, we were in compliance with all financial covenants.

Under the terms of the Synchrony Agreement, Synchrony Bank sets the minimum acceptable credit ratings, the interest rates, fees and all other terms and conditions of the customer accounts, including collection policies and procedures, and is the owner of the accounts.

Non-GAAP Data

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA)
 
We define earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) as net income plus: income tax expense, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and asset impairments. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful indicator of our financial performance and our ability to generate cash from operating activities. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled definitions used by other companies. The table below reconciles Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, to the comparable GAAP financial measure.

Return on Invested Capital (ROIC)
(dollars in thousands)
  
ROIC is a financial measure we use to determine how efficiently we deploy our capital. It quantifies the return we earn on our invested capital. Management believes ROIC is also a useful metric for investors and financial analysts. We compute ROIC as outlined below. Our definition and calculation of ROIC may not be comparable to similarly titled definitions and calculations used by other companies. The tables below reconcile net operating profit after taxes (NOPAT) and total invested capital, which are non-GAAP financial measures, to the comparable GAAP financial measures:

___________________
(1) Rent expense is added back to operating income to show the impact of owning versus leasing the related assets.

(2) Depreciation is based on the average of the last five fiscal quarters' ending capitalized operating lease obligations (see note 6) for the respective reporting periods with an assumed thirty-year useful life. This is subtracted from operating income to illustrate the impact of owning versus leasing the related assets.

(3) Reflects annual effective income tax rates, before discrete adjustments, of 32.6% and 37.8% for 2017 and 2016, respectively.

(4) Cash greater than target is defined as cash, cash equivalents and marketable debt securities less customer prepayments in excess of $100 million.

(5) Long-term debt includes existing capital lease obligations, if applicable.

(6) A multiple of eight times annual rent expense is used as an estimate for capitalizing our operating lease obligations. The methodology utilized aligns with the methodology of a nationally recognized credit rating agency.

(7) Average invested capital represents the average of the last five fiscal quarters' ending invested capital balances.

(8) ROIC equals NOPAT divided by average invested capital.

Off-Balance-Sheet Arrangements and Contractual Obligations

As of September 30, 2017, we were not involved in any unconsolidated special purpose entity transactions. Other than our operating leases and a $3.15 million outstanding letter of credit, we do not have any off-balance-sheet financing.

There has been no material changes in our contractual obligations, other than in the ordinary course of business, since the end of fiscal 2016. See Note 5, Credit Agreement, of the Notes to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for information regarding our credit agreement. See our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 for additional information regarding our other contractual obligations.

Critical Accounting Policies

We discuss our critical accounting policies and estimates in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. There were no significant changes in our critical accounting policies since the end of fiscal 2016.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Changes in the overall level of interest rates affect interest income generated from cash and cash equivalents. If overall interest rates were one percentage point lower than current rates, our annual interest income would not change by a significant amount based on our cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2017, and the current low interest-rate environment. We do not manage our investment interest-rate volatility risk through the use of derivative instruments.

As of September 30, 2017, we had no borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Conclusions Regarding the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(e), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report.

Changes in Internal Controls

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2017, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II: OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
We are involved from time to time in various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of our business, including primarily commercial, product liability, employment and intellectual property claims. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, we record a liability in our consolidated financial statements with respect to any of these matters when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated. With respect to currently pending legal proceedings, we have not established an estimated range of reasonably possible additional losses either because we believe that we have valid defenses to claims asserted against us or the proceeding has not advanced to a stage of discovery that would enable us to establish an estimate. We currently do not expect the outcome of these matters to have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Litigation, however, is inherently unpredictable, and it is possible that the ultimate outcome of one or more claims asserted against us could adversely impact our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. We expense legal costs as incurred.

On January 12, 2015, Plaintiffs David and Katina Spade commenced a purported class action lawsuit in New Jersey state court against Select Comfort alleging that Select Comfort violated New Jersey consumer statutes by failing to provide to purchasing consumers certain disclosures required by the New Jersey Furniture Regulations. It is undisputed that plaintiffs suffered no actual damages or in any way relied upon or were impacted by the alleged omissions. Nonetheless, on behalf of a purported class of New Jersey purchasers of Select Comfort beds and bases, plaintiffs seek to recover a $100 statutory fine for each alleged omission, along with attorneys’ fees and costs. Select Comfort removed the case to the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, which subsequently granted Select Comfort’s motion to dismiss. Plaintiffs appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which has certified two questions of law to the New Jersey Supreme Court relating to whether plaintiffs who have suffered no actual injury may bring claims. The New Jersey Supreme Court has accepted the certified questions and oral arguments are expected to be heard in the near future. As the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey determined, we believe that the case is without merit and the order of dismissal should be affirmed.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
 
Our business, financial condition and operating results are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including both those that are specific to our business and others that affect all businesses operating in a global environment. Investors should carefully consider the information in this report under the heading, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and also the information under the heading, “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. The risk factors discussed in the Annual Report on Form 10-K and in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q do not identify all risks that we face because our business operations could also be affected by additional risk factors that are not presently known to us or that we currently consider to be immaterial to our operations.

Any repurchased shares are constructively retired and returned to an unissued status.
