Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

Management determines the appropriate classification of its investments in marketable debt and equity securities at the time of purchase.
On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its debt securities to determine if a decline in fair value is other-than-temporary. When a decline in fair value is determined to be other-than-temporary, an impairment charge would be recorded and a new cost basis in the investment is established. The amortized cost of debt securities in this category is adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts to maturity. Such amortization or accretion is included in interest income. Realized gains and losses and interest and dividends on securities are included in interest income.
The cost of securities sold is based upon the specific identification method. Securities classified as available for sale include both securities due within one year and securities with maturity dates beyond one year. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.
The Company uses the established fair value hierarchy that ranks the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. The fair value of marketable securities is determined based on quoted market prices, which approximate fair value. The carrying amounts of other long-term debt approximate fair value because either the interest rate fluctuates based on market rates or interest rates appear to approximate market rates for similar instruments.
The fair value estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of judgment and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect these estimates. Allowance for Doubtful Accounts. Payment terms for trade receivables generally range from 30 to 90 days depending on the circumstances of each transaction or billing contract.
Any payments not received within the agreed upon due date are considered past due.

Such allowance is computed based upon a specific customer account review of larger customers and balances past due.

The Company reviews its long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.
If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Goodwill and Other Intangibles. Income tax positions must meet a more-likely-than-not recognition threshold at the effective date to be recognized. Revenue on services is recognized as services are performed and the fee is fixed or determinable and collection is probable.
The Company does not provide an estimated allowance for sales returns as they are immaterial. Included in cost of sales are the costs of services and purchased goods, chemical repackaging costs, related distribution costs and occupancy costs related to retail locations. The Company recognizes consideration received from vendors at the time the obligations to purchase products or perform services have been completed.
These items are recorded as a reduction in cost of goods sold in the statement of operations. Shipping and Handing Costs. The Company records shipping and handling costs paid by customers as revenue.

The fair value of the awards immediately before the modification of the vesting was the same value as the fair value after the modification took effect. All of the options granted prior to were exercised in February of after the Reorganization.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. The reclassification had no effect on net income as previously reported.
Classification of Cost of merchandise and services sold. During fiscal , management reviewed its classification of certain expenses on its Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Stock Based Compensation Plans. Given that the tax benefit meets the realization criteria of the applicable accounting guidance, the benefit has been recorded as a credit to equity since the entire benefit exceeded the recorded expense of zero. The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model which requires the use of a number of assumptions including expected volatility, risk-free interest rate, expected dividends, and expected term. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of our stock.
The expected term of the options represents the estimated period of time until exercise and is based on historical experience of similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms and vesting schedules. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant for the expected term of the option. We have not paid dividends in the past and do not plan to pay any dividends in the near future to ultimate shareholder who hold the type of security subject to the option arrangement.
