Interim Basis of Presentation


Principles of Consolidation


Ethan Allen conducts business globally and has strategically aligned its business into two reportable segments: wholesale and retail. These two segments represent strategic business areas of our vertically integrated enterprise that operate separately and provide their own distinctive services. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Our consolidated financial statements also include the accounts of an entity in which we are a majority shareholder with the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the entity’s performance. Noncontrolling interest amounts in the entity are immaterial and included in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income within Other income (expense), net. All intercompany activity and balances have been eliminated from the consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary for fair presentation, have been included in the consolidated financial statements. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of results that  may be expected for the entire fiscal year. The interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 (the “2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K”).


Use of Estimates


We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), which require 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 the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of net sales and expenses during the reporting period. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making those estimates, actual results could differ from those estimates. Areas in which significant estimates have been made include, but are not limited to, goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment analyses, useful lives for property, plant and equipment, inventory obsolescence, business insurance reserves, tax valuation allowances and the evaluation of uncertain tax positions.


Restricted Cash


We present restricted cash as a component of total cash and cash equivalents as presented on our consolidated statement of cash flows and within Other Assets on our consolidated balance sheet. As of March 31, 2022, we held $0.9 million of restricted cash related to our Ethan Allen insurance captive. We did not hold any restricted cash as of June 30, 2021.


We have evaluated subsequent events through the date of issuance of the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
