ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We maintain "disclosure controls and procedures," as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Our management, under the direction and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 29, 2017. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 29, 2017, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
The Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting is contained in Part IV. "Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting" of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Attestation Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
Grant Thornton, LLP, the independent registered public accounting firm who audited the Company’s consolidated financial statements, has issued an attestation report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. A report of independent registered public accounting firm is contained in Part IV. "Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm" of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) identified in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) and 15d-15(d) of the Exchange Act that occurred during the three months ended December 29, 2017 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls
Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, believes that our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and are effective at the reasonable assurance level. However, our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. These inherent limitations include, but are not limited to, the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting


The management of Fox is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Fox’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurances regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements issued for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). Under the supervision of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, Fox conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect all misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In making its assessment of internal control over financial reporting as of December 29, 2017, management has excluded FF US Acquisition Corp. and FF US Holding Corp. ("Tuscany") which were formed in November 2017 to acquire the business of Flagship Inc.. The Company is currently assessing the control environment of the acquired business. The acquired business represented 2% of the Company's consolidated total assets as of December 29, 2017 and less than 1% of the Company's consolidated net sales for the year ended December 29, 2017.
In making its assessment of internal control over financial reporting, management used criteria issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013). Based on the evaluation, our management concluded that its internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 29, 2017.

Grant Thornton LLP, the independent registered public accounting firm who audited the Company's consolidated financial statements, has issued an attestation report on the Company's internal control over financial reporting, which is included elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Fox Factory Holding Corp.
Scotts Valley, California


Opinion on the financial statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Fox Factory Holding Corp. (a Delaware corporation) and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016, the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 29, 2017, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 29, 2017, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”), the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 29, 2017, based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”), and our report dated February 27, 2018 expressed an unqualified opinion.

Basis for opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We have served as the Company's auditor since 2008.

(a Delaware corporation) and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 29, 2017, based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”). In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 29, 2017, based on criteria established in the 2013 Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by COSO.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”), the consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the year ended December 29, 2017, and our report dated February 27, 2018 expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements.

Basis for opinion

The Company’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting ("Management's Report”). Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Our audit of, and opinion on, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting does not include the internal control over financial reporting of FF US Acquisition Corp. and FF US Holding Corp. (collectively, "Tuscany") whose financial statements reflect total assets and sales constituting 2 percent and less than 1 percent, respectively, of the related consolidated financial statement amounts as of and for the year ended December 29, 2017. As indicated in Management’s Report, certain assets and liabilities of Tuscany were acquired during 2017. Management’s assertion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting excluded internal control over financial reporting of Tuscany.

Definition and limitations of internal control over financial reporting

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

FOX FACTORY HOLDING CORP.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
December 29, 2017
(in thousands, except per share amounts)

1. Description of the Business, Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Fox Factory Holding Corp. (the "Company") designs and manufactures performance-defining ride dynamics products primarily for bicycles ("bikes"), side-by-side vehicles ("Side-by-Sides"), on-road vehicles with off-road capabilities, off-road vehicles and trucks, all-terrain vehicles, or ATVs, snowmobiles, specialty vehicles and applications, and motorcycles. The Company is a direct supplier to leading power vehicle original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs"). Additionally, the Company supplies top bicycle OEMs and their current contract manufacturers, and provides aftermarket products to retailers and distributors.

Throughout this Annual Report on Form 10-K, unless stated otherwise or as the context otherwise requires, the "Company," "FOX," "Fox Factory," "we," "us," "our," and "ours" refer to Fox Factory Holding Corp. and its operating subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.

Basis of Presentation - The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States of America ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

Change in Fiscal Year - In fiscal year 2016, the Company changed from a calendar year ending on December 31 to a 52-53 week fiscal year ending on the Friday nearest to December 31, effective beginning with the first quarter of 2016. Therefore, the financial results of certain future fiscal years and quarters, which will contain 53 and 14 weeks, respectively, will not be exactly comparable to the prior and subsequent fiscal years and quarters, which contain 52 and 13 weeks, respectively. The adoption of a 52-53 week year was not deemed a change in fiscal year for purposes of reporting subject to Rule 13a-10 or 15d-10; hence, no transition reports are required. The Company has made the change in fiscal years on a prospective basis and thus has not revised the Company’s previously reported financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2015 or any interim period therein. For 2017 and 2016, the Company's fiscal year ended on December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016, respectively.

Principles of Consolidation - The consolidated financial statements include the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in conformity with 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 the financial statements and the reported amounts of income and expenses during the reporting period. These estimates are based on information available as of the date of the financial statements; therefore, actual results could differ from management’s estimates.

Foreign Currency Translation and Transaction - The functional currency of the Company’s non-U.S. entities is the local currency of the respective operations. The Company translates the financial statements of its non-U.S. entities into U.S. Dollars each reporting period for purposes of consolidation. Assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are translated at the period-end currency exchange rates while sales and expenses are translated at the average currency exchange rates in effect for the period. The effects of these translation adjustments are a component of other comprehensive income.

Foreign currency transaction losses (gains) of $181, $340, and $(187) for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, are included as a component of other income or expense.

Cash and Cash Equivalents - Cash consists of cash maintained in a checking account. All highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity date of 90 days or less at the date of purchase are considered to be cash equivalents.

Accounts Receivable - Accounts receivable are unsecured customer obligations which generally require payment within various terms from the invoice date. The receivables are stated at the invoice amount. Financing terms vary by customer. Payments of accounts receivable are applied to the specific invoices identified on the customer’s remittance advice or if unspecified, generally to the earliest unpaid invoices.

The carrying amount of accounts receivable is reduced by a valuation allowance that reflects management’s best estimate of amounts that may not be collected. All accounts or portions thereof deemed to be uncollectible or that may require an excessive collection cost are written off to the allowance for doubtful accounts.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - continued
December 29, 2017
(in thousands, except per share amounts)


Concentration of Credit Risk - Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of cash and accounts receivable. The Company held $17,102 in cash at U.S. subsidiaries and $18,845 at subsidiaries outside the U.S.. The account balances may significantly exceed the insurance coverage provided on such deposits. Generally, these deposits may be redeemed upon demand and are maintained with financial institutions with reputable credit and therefore bear minimal credit risk. The Company has not experienced any losses in its uninsured accounts.
 
The Company mitigates its credit risk with respect to accounts receivable by performing ongoing credit evaluations and monitoring of its customers’ accounts receivable balances. The following customers accounted for 10% or more of the Company’s accounts receivable balance:
 
December 29,
 
December 30,
 
2017
 
2016
Customer A
15%
 
17%
Customer B
14%
 
14%
During the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, Customer A from the table above represented 10%, 14%, and 12% of sales, respectively. No other customers were individually significant in any of these periods.
The Company depends on a limited number of vendors to supply component parts for its products. The Company purchased 35%, 34%, and 37% of its product components for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, from ten vendors. As of December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016, amounts due to these vendors represented 23% and 19% of accounts payable, respectively.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts - The Company records a provision for doubtful accounts based on historical experience and a detailed assessment of the collectability of its accounts receivable. In estimating the allowance for doubtful accounts, management considers, among other factors, the aging of the accounts receivable, historical write-offs, and the credit-worthiness of each customer. If circumstances change, such as higher-than-expected defaults or an unexpected material adverse change in a major customer’s ability to meet its financial obligations, the Company’s estimate of the recoverability of the amounts due could be reduced by a material amount.
The following table presents the activity in the allowance for doubtful accounts:

Cost includes raw materials, as well as direct labor and manufacturing overhead for products we manufacture. Market value is based on current replacement cost for raw materials and on a net realizable value for finished goods. Adjustments to reduce the cost of inventory to its net realizable value are made, if required, for estimated excess, obsolescence or impaired balances.
Property and Equipment - Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred, and improvements and betterments are capitalized. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation and amortization are removed from the balance sheet and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in operations in the period realized.

Leasehold improvements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the terms of the lease, or the useful lives of the assets, whichever is shorter. The value assigned to land associated with buildings we own, is not amortized. Depreciation and amortization periods for the Company’s property and equipment are as follows:

Estimated useful life
 
 
 
Machine shop equipment
 
10-15 years
Manufacturing equipment
 
5-10 years
Information systems, office equipment and furniture
 
3-5 years
Internal use computer software
 
10 years
Transportation equipment

Internal Use Computer Software Costs - Costs incurred to purchase and develop computer software for internal use are capitalized during the application development and implementation stages. These software costs have been for enterprise-level business and finance software that is customized to meet the Company’s operational needs. Capitalized costs are included in property and equipment and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the software beginning when the software project is substantially complete and placed in service. The Company capitalized $2,482 in internal use computer software costs during the year ended December 29, 2017. Costs incurred during the preliminary project stage and costs for training, data conversion, and maintenance are expensed as incurred.
Impairment of Long-lived Assets -The Company periodically reviews property and equipment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset is impaired or the estimated useful lives are no longer appropriate. If indicators of impairment exist and the undiscounted projected cash flows associated with such assets are less than the carrying amount of the assets, an impairment loss is recorded to write the assets down to their estimated fair values. Fair value is estimated based on discounted future cash flows. No impairment charges were recorded during the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
Business Combinations - The Company accounts for acquisitions of entities that include inputs and processes and have the ability to create outputs as business combinations. The Company allocates the purchase price of the acquisition to the tangible assets acquired, liabilities assumed and identifiable intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the purchase price over those fair values is recorded as goodwill. Acquisition related expenses and restructuring costs are expensed as incurred. During the measurement period, the Company records adjustments to provisional amounts recorded for assets acquired and liabilities assumed with the corresponding offset to goodwill. After the measurement period, which could be up to one year after the transaction date, subsequent adjustments are recorded to the Company’s consolidated statements of income.
Goodwill and Intangible Assets - Goodwill represents the excess of purchase price over the fair value of the net assets of businesses acquired. On an annual basis, the Company makes a qualitative assessment to determine if it is more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, including goodwill. If the Company determines that the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, it will perform a quantitative analysis; otherwise, no further evaluation is necessary. For the quantitative impairment test, the Company compares the fair value of the reporting unit to its carrying value, including goodwill. The Company determines the fair value of the reporting unit based on a weighting of income and market approaches. If the fair value of the reporting unit exceeds the carrying value of the net assets assigned to that unit, goodwill is not impaired and no further testing is performed. If the carrying value of the net assets assigned to the reporting unit exceeds the fair value of the reporting unit, then the Company will recognize a loss equal to the excess, limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. Impairments, if any, are charged directly to earnings. The Company has a single reporting unit for purposes of assessing goodwill impairment. We completed our most recent annual impairment test in the third quarter of 2017 at which time we had a single reporting unit for purposes of assessing goodwill impairment. No impairment charges have been incurred to date.

Intangible assets include customer relationships and the Company’s core technology, are subject to amortization over their respective useful lives, and are classified in intangibles, net in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. These intangibles are evaluated for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of the assets may not be fully recoverable. If facts and circumstances indicate that the carrying value might not be recoverable, projected undiscounted net cash flows associated with the related asset or group of assets over their estimated remaining useful lives is compared against their respective carrying amounts. If an asset is found to be impaired, the impairment charge will be measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of an entity exceeds its fair value. Trademarks and brands are considered to be indefinite life intangibles, and are not amortized but are subject to testing for impairment annually. No impairments of intangible assets were identified in the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

Self-Insurance - Since January 2015, the Company has been partially self-insured for its U.S. employee health and welfare benefits.  The Company’s liability for self-insurance is based on claims filed and an estimate of claims incurred but not yet reported. The Company considers a number of factors, including historical claims information, when determining the amount of the accrual. Costs related to the administration of the plan and related claims are expensed as incurred. The Company has third-party insurance coverage to limit exposure for individually significant claims.  The estimates for unpaid claims incurred as of December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016 are $934 and $1,101 respectively, and are recorded within accrued expenses on the consolidated balance sheets.
Revenue Recognition - The Company recognizes sales when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, title has transferred, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collectability of the receivable is reasonably assured. Provisions for discounts, rebates, sales incentives, returns, and other adjustments are provided for in the period the related sales are recorded based on an assessment of historical trends and current projection of future results. Sales are recorded net of sales tax.
Cost of Sales - Cost of sales primarily consists of materials and labor expense in the manufacturing of the Company’s products. Cost of sales also includes provisions for excess and obsolete inventory, warranty costs, certain allocated costs for facilities, depreciation and other manufacturing overhead. Additionally, it includes stock-based compensation for personnel directly involved with manufacturing the Company’s product offerings.
Shipping and Handling Fees and Costs - The Company includes shipping and handling fees billed to customers in sales. Shipping costs associated with inbound freight are capitalized as part of inventory and included in cost of sales as products are sold.
Sales and Marketing - Sales and marketing expenses include costs related to sales, customer service and marketing personnel, including their wages, employee benefits and related stock-based compensation, and occupancy related expenses. Other significant sales and marketing expenses include race support and sponsorships of events and athletes, advertising and promotions related to trade shows, travel and entertainment, and promotional materials, products and sales offices costs.
Research and Development - Research and development expenses consist primarily of salaries and personnel costs, including wages, employee benefits and related stock-based compensation for the Company’s engineering, research and development teams, occupancy related expenses, fees for third party consultants, service fees, and expenses for prototype tooling and materials, travel, and supplies. The Company expenses research and development costs as incurred.
General and Administrative - General and administrative expenses include costs related to executive, finance, information technology, human resources and administrative personnel, including wages, employee benefits and related stock-based compensation expenses. The Company records professional and contract service expenses, occupancy related expenses associated with corporate locations and equipment, and legal expenses in general and administrative expenses.
Stock-Based Compensation - The Company measures stock-based compensation for all stock-based awards, including stock options and restricted stock units (“RSUs”), based on their estimated fair values on the date of the grant and recognizes the stock-based compensation cost for time-vested awards on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. For performance-based RSUs, the number of shares ultimately expected to vest is estimated at each reporting date based on management’s expectations regarding the relevant performance criteria. To the extent shares are expected to vest, the stock based compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. The fair value of each stock option granted is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company does not estimate forfeitures in recognizing stock based compensation expense. The fair value of the RSU’s is equal to the fair value of the Company’s common stock on the grant date of the award.

Income Taxes - Income taxes are computed using the asset and liability method, under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Operating loss and tax credit carryforwards are measured by applying currently enacted tax laws. Valuation allowances are provided when necessary to reduce net deferred tax assets to an amount that is more likely than not to be realized.
The Company recognizes the tax effects of an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not to be sustained based solely on its technical merits as of the reporting date and then only in an amount more likely than not to be sustained upon review by the tax authorities. The Company considers many factors when evaluating and estimating its tax positions and tax benefits, which may require periodic adjustments and which may not accurately anticipate actual outcomes.
Advertising - Advertising costs are expensed as incurred and recognized as sales and marketing expenses on our Consolidated Statements of Income. Costs incurred for advertising totaled $1,070, $1,242, and $1,532 for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.
Warranties - The Company offers limited warranties on its products generally for one to four years. The Company recognizes estimated costs related to warranty activities as a component of cost of sales upon product shipment. The estimates are based upon historical product failure rates and historical costs incurred in correcting product failures. The recorded amount is adjusted from time to time for specifically identified warranty exposures. Actual warranty expenses are charged against the Company’s estimated warranty liability when incurred. Factors that affect the Company’s liability include the number of units, historical and anticipated rates of warranty claims, and the cost per claim.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments - The Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") has issued Accounting Standards Codification 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, that requires the valuation of assets and liabilities required or permitted to be either recorded or disclosed at fair value based on hierarchy of available inputs as follows:
Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability; and
Level 3: Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (i.e., supported by little or no market activity).

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, receivables, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate their fair values due to their short-term nature. Amounts owed under the Company's credit facility approximate fair value due to the variable interest rate features embedded in both the line of credit and term debt. 
Certain Significant Risks and Uncertainties - The Company is subject to those risks common in manufacturing-driven markets, including, but not limited to, competitive forces, dependence on key personnel, customer demand for its products, the successful protection of its proprietary technologies, compliance with government regulations, and the possibility of not being able to obtain additional financing when needed.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements - In May 2014, the FASB and International Accounting Standards Board issued their converged standard on revenue recognition, Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, updated in December 2016 with the release of ASU 2016-20. This standard outlines a single comprehensive model for companies to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The core principle of the revenue model is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods and services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods and services. In addition, the new standard requires that reporting companies disclose the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.
This standard will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The Company has selected the modified retrospective implementation method, in which the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard is recognized at the date of the initial application in retained earnings.

The Company utilized a cross-functional team to implement the guidance related to the recognition of revenue from contracts with customers. The implementation approach included an assessment of customer contracts aimed at identifying contractual provisions that could result in a change in the timing or the amount of revenue recognized in comparison with prior guidance, as well as assessing the enhanced disclosure requirements of the new guidance. As a result of these procedures, the Company expects that the primary impact of this guidance will be on pricing provisions contained in certain customer contracts which either represent variable consideration or provide the customer with a material right, in some cases resulting in a different allocation of the transaction price than under current guidance. The Company does not expect the adoption of this ASU to be material to its financial statements.
In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11, Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory. The guidance applies to inventory that is measured using first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) or average cost. Under the guidance, an entity should measure inventory that is within scope at the lower of cost and net realizable value, which is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation. The Company adopted ASU 2015-11 at the beginning of fiscal year 2017. The adoption of ASU 2015-11 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which will supersede the existing guidance for lease accounting. This ASU will require lessees to recognize leases with durations greater than twelve months on the balance sheet. This guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows: Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which clarifies the presentation of certain transactions, including, but not limited to, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination and debt prepayment and extinguishment costs in the cash flow statement. This standard will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated statement of cash flows.
In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Transfer of Assets Other Than Inventory, which improves the accounting for the income tax consequences of intra-entity transfers of assets other than inventory. This standard will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The Company is currently assessing the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations: Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which provides more guidance to an entity when they are assessing if transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions of assets or businesses. The clarification of the definition of a business impacts various areas of accounting such as acquisitions, disposals, goodwill, and consolidations. This standard will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The Company is currently assessing the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which removes the second step of the goodwill impairment test that would currently require the assessment of fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit to measure goodwill impairments. Under ASU 2017-04, goodwill impairment will be the amount by which a reporting unit's carrying value exceeds its fair value. The Company adopted ASU 2017-04 effective for goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The adoption of ASU 2017-14 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
Reclassifications - Certain non-vendor liabilities have been reclassified from accounts payable to accrued expenses in the December 30, 2016 consolidated balance sheet and the consolidated statement of cash flows in order to more accurately reflect the nature of the liability on a basis consistent with the financial statements as of and for the period ended December 29, 2017.

6. Related Party Transactions
In September 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with Compass to assist with compliance requirements pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as amended. Fees paid for services provided for compliance associated with our fiscal 2015 financial statements were approximately $135, including $72 expensed in the twelve months ended December 30, 2016. This agreement expired upon completion of the services related to fiscal 2015. Compass no longer holds any equity interest in the Company.
Fox Factory, Inc. has a triple-net building lease for its manufacturing and office facilities in Watsonville, California. The building is owned by a member of our Board of Directors. Rent expense under this lease was $715, $837 and $1,203 for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. The lease was amended effective April 2016 to extend the term through June 30, 2020, with monthly rental payments of $60, which are adjusted annually for a cost-of-living increase based upon the consumer price index.
On November 30, 2017, the Company, through FF US Holding Corp. ("Tuscany"), acquired the business of Flagship, Inc. Tuscany has building leases for its manufacturing and office facilities in Elkhart, Indiana. The buildings are owned by the non-controlling interest stockholders, who are now employees of the Company. Rent expense under these leases was $29 for the year ended December 29, 2017. The leases are effective November 30, 2017 through April 1, 2022, with monthly rental payments of $29, which are subject to annual escalation of 7.5%. See Note 8 - Commitments and Contingencies of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Annual Report on Form 10-K for a summary of the future minimum lease payments under related party operating leases.

7. Debt
Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility
In August 2013, the Company entered into a credit facility with Sun Trust Bank and other named lenders which has been periodically amended and restated; the last restatement occurred on May 11, 2016 and was further amended on August 11, 2016, June 12, 2017 and November 30, 2017 (as most recently amended and restated and as further amended, the “Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility”). The Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility, which matures on May 11, 2021, provides a revolving line of credit and a maturing secured term loan with a refinanced principal balance of $75,000, as a result of a May 2016 amendment and restatement. The term loan is subject to quarterly amortization payments.
The Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility provides for interest at either a rate based on the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.50%, or based on the prime rate offered by SunTrust Bank plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.50%. At December 29, 2017, the one-month LIBOR and prime rates were 1.57% and 4.50%, respectively. At December 29, 2017 our weighted average interest rate on outstanding borrowing was 3.16%. The Second Amended and Restated Credit Facility is secured by substantially all of the Company’s assets, restricts the Company's ability to make certain payments and engage in certain transactions, and also requires that the Company satisfy customary financial ratios. The Company was in compliance with the covenants as of December 29, 2017.
Additionally, the existing credit facility permits up to $15,000 of the aggregate revolving commitment to be used by the Company for issuance of letters of credit. As of December 29, 2017, the Company utilized $5,000 in the form of a standby letter of credit in support of subsidiary operations. The letter of credit expires in November 2018.

Operating Leases - The Company has operating lease agreements for administrative, research and development, manufacturing and sales and marketing facilities and equipment that expire at various dates and in some cases contain renewal options and rent escalations based on inflation indexes. The Company recognizes rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term and records the difference between cash rent payments and the recognition of rent expense as a deferred rent liability. Rent expense was $6,045, $4,819, and $4,611 for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. See Note 6 - Related Party Transactions of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in this Annual Report for Form 10-K for additional information on related party operating leases.
Approximate remaining future minimum lease payments under these operating leases as of December 29, 2017, are as follows:

Indemnification Agreements - In the ordinary course of business, the Company may provide indemnifications of varying scope and terms to customers, vendors, lessors, business partners, and other parties with respect to certain matters, including, but not limited to, losses arising out of breach of such agreements, services to be provided by the Company or intellectual property infringement claims made by third parties. In addition, the Company has entered into indemnification agreements with directors and certain officers and employees that will require the Company, among other things, to indemnify them against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors, officers or employees. While the outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company does not believe that the outcome of any claims under indemnification arrangements will have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or liquidity.
Legal Proceedings - A lawsuit was filed on December 17, 2015 by SRAM Corporation (“SRAM”) in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, against the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, RFE Canada Holding Corp. (“RFE Canada”). The lawsuit alleges patent infringement of U.S. Patent number 9,182,027 ("027 Patent") and violation of the Lanham Act. SRAM filed a second lawsuit in the same court against RFE Canada on May 16, 2016. That lawsuit alleges patent infringement of U.S patent number 9,291,250 ("250 Patent").  The Company believes the lawsuits are without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself.  As such, the Company has filed, before the U. S. Patent and Trademark Appeals Board ("PTAB"), for Interparties Reviews ("IPR") of the '027 Patent and separately the same for the '250 Patent. The PTAB has instituted all of the Company's IPR Petitions and has stayed a third party ex-parte re-exam of SRAM's '027 Patent.
In a separate action the Company filed a lawsuit on January 29, 2016 in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California against SRAM. That lawsuit alleges SRAM’s infringement of two separate Company owned patents, specifically U.S. Patent numbers 6,135,434 and 6,557,674.  A second lawsuit was filed by the Company on July 1, 2016 in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California against SRAM alleging infringement of the Company’s U.S. Patent numbers 8,226,172 and 8,974,009. These lawsuits have been moved to U.S. District Count, District of Colorado but are otherwise proceeding.
The SRAM lawsuits against the Company have been stayed by the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois pending a PTAB determination in the Company filed SRAM patent reviews (IPRs).  Meanwhile the Company filed lawsuits have moved forward as scheduled by the courts. Due to the inherent uncertainties of litigation, the Company is not able to predict either the outcome or a range of reasonably possible losses, if any, at this time. Accordingly, no amounts have been recorded in the consolidated financial statements for the settlement of these matters.  Were an unfavorable ruling to occur, or if factors indicate that a loss is probable and reasonably estimable, the Company's business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.
The Company is involved in other legal matters that arise in the ordinary course of business. Based on information currently available, management does not believe that the ultimate resolution of these matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Other Commitments - On November 30, 2017, the Company acquired an 80% interest in Tuscany. The stockholders' agreement provides the Company with a call option (the "Call Option") to acquire the remaining 20% of Tuscany any time from November 30, 2019 through November 30, 2024 at a value which approximates fair market value. In addition, if the Call Option has not been exercised as of November 30, 2024, the non-controlling owners shall be entitled to exercise a put option (the "Put Option") on November 30, 2024 and for a 180 day period thereafter, which would require the Company to purchase all of the remaining shares held by the non-controlling owners at a price that approximates fair market value. See Note 15 - Acquisitions for additional information on this commitment.
In connection with the acquisitions of businesses in 2014, the Company had commitments to pay up to $46,195 in additional consideration and acquisition related compensation, contingent upon the achievement of certain financial performance goals and in some cases continued employment through 2016. As of December 29, 2017, the Company paid $35,153 cumulatively under these arrangements, which concluded within the current fiscal year. The Company has no further commitments related to these acquisitions.

9. Stockholders' Equity
Secondary Stock Offerings and Share Repurchase Program
In February 2016, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the Company's 2016 stock repurchase program (the "2016 Repurchase Program"), permitting repurchases of up to an aggregate of $40,000 in shares of common stock. The plan expired on December 31, 2017. The Company repurchased 890 shares for a total of $13,754 under both the 2016 Repurchase Program and the prior repurchase program of the Company, which expired on December 31, 2015. Shares of common stock repurchased under this program are accounted for as treasury stock under the cost method.
In March 2016, Compass sold 2,500 shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $15.90 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions, in a secondary public offering. The Company did not sell shares or receive any proceeds from the sales of shares by the selling stockholders. Concurrently, pursuant to the 2016 Repurchase Program and a stock repurchase agreement between Compass and the Company, the Company repurchased 500 shares of its common stock held by Compass for a total of $7,948.
In August 2016, selling stockholders, including Compass, sold 4,025 shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $18.00 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions, in a secondary public offering. The total shares sold include 525 shares, which were also sold by certain selling stockholders, in connection with the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The Company did not sell shares or receive any proceeds from the sales of shares by the selling stockholders.
In November 2016, the Company closed another secondary offering, whereby the selling stockholders, including Compass, sold an additional 4,025 shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $20.51 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The total shares sold include 525 shares, which were also sold by certain selling stockholders, in connection with the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The Company did not sell shares or receive any proceeds from the sales of shares by the selling stockholders.
In March 2017, the Company closed another secondary offering, whereby the selling stockholders, including Compass, sold an additional 5,574 shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $26.65 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The total shares sold included 466 shares, which were also sold by certain selling stockholders, in connection with the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The Company did not sell shares or receive any proceeds from the sales of shares by the selling stockholders. As a result of the March 2017 secondary offering, Compass no longer holds any equity interest in the Company.
The Company incurred approximately $113, $617, and $225 of expenses in connection with the secondary offerings during the fiscal years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

Equity Incentive Plans
The Company has outstanding awards under the following equity incentive plans: the 2008 Stock Option Plan (the "2008 Plan"), the 2008 Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan (the "2008 Non-Statutory Plan") and the 2013 Omnibus Plan (the "2013 Plan"). No further awards will be granted pursuant to the 2008 Plan or the 2008 Non-Statutory Plan. Under the 2013 Plan, the Company has the ability to issue incentive stock options, non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, RSUs, performance units and/or performance shares.
The equity incentive plans are administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, which has the authority to determine the type of incentive award, as well as the terms and conditions of the awards. Options granted under the plans have vesting periods ranging from one to five years and expire no later than 10 years from the date of grant. RSUs generally vest over a four-year period with 25% vesting at the end of one year and the remaining vesting annually thereafter. In addition to time-based vesting criteria, certain of our RSUs include performance-based vesting criteria. As of December 29, 2017, there were 3,576 shares reserved for issuance under the Company's equity incentive plans and 1,890 shares available for grant under the 2013 Plan. The Company generally issues new shares in connection with awards under its equity incentive plans.

Stock-Based Compensation
Compensation expense related to the Company's share-based awards for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 was $8,727, $6,223 and $4,907, respectively, of which $8,641, $5,977 and $4,576, respectively, related to RSUs and $86, $246 and $331, respectively, related to stock options.

Stock-based compensation expense capitalized to inventory was not material for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015. Tax benefits related to stock-based compensation were approximately $2,886, $2,178, and $1,717 for the years ended December 29, 2017, December 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. Excess tax benefits of $6,974 and $935 were recognized as a component of income tax expense for the years ended December 29, 2017 and December 30, 2016 and $539 was recognized as a credit to additional paid-in-capital for the year ended December 31, 2015, respectively.

Restricted Stock Units
The Company grants both time-based and performance-based stock awards which also include a time-based vesting feature. Compensation expense for time-based stock awards is measured at the grant date based on the closing market price of the Company's common stock, and recognized ratably over the vesting period.
For performance-based stock awards, compensation expense is measured based on estimates of the number of shares ultimately expected to vest at each reporting date based on management’s expectations regarding the relevant performance criteria. The recognition of compensation expense associated with performance-based stock awards requires defined criteria for assessing achievement and judgment in assessing the probability of meeting the performance goals.

10. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share ("EPS") amounts are computed by dividing net income attributable to Fox Factory Holding Corp. stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS amounts are computed by dividing net income for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive common stock outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive common shares include shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options and vesting of restricted stock units, which are reflected in diluted earnings per share by application of the treasury stock method.
The following table presents the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share:

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "TCJA") was enacted on December 22, 2017. The TCJA reduces the US federal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, requires companies to pay a one-time transition tax on unremitted earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries, creates a new minimum tax on certain foreign earnings, and provides incentives for US companies to sell and license goods and services abroad, among other changes.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Company sold the net assets of its Taiwan branch operations and its shares of Fox Factory IP Holding Corp. to Fox Factory Switzerland GmbH. The Company’s Taiwan operations were as a result, organized as a branch of the Swiss entity (together, "Fox Switzerland"). Fox Switzerland owns or licenses the Company’s non-US intangible property and generates earnings that prior to the enactment of TCJA, were not currently subject to payment of US income taxes or accrual of deferred tax expense because the Company asserted that such earnings were permanently invested outside the US. The unremitted earnings of Fox Switzerland became subject to US tax as a result of the one-time transition tax provided for by the TCJA, which approximated $3,706. As a result of the change in US taxation, the Company no longer considers the unremitted earnings of Fox Switzerland to be permanently reinvested, and as such recorded a deferred tax liability of approximately $2,026, primarily representing foreign withholding tax due upon remittance.
As permitted by the Securities and Exchange Commission's Staff Accounting Bulletin 118, the Company has not completed its accounting for the tax effects of the enactment of the TCJA; however, in certain cases, as described below, the Company has made a reasonable estimate of the effects of the new law. In other cases, primarily the impact of grandfathering on limitations of deductibility of executive compensation, the Company has not been able to make a reasonable estimate because clarifying regulations have not been issued, and as such continues to account for those items based on its existing accounting under ASC 740, Income Taxes, and the provisions of the tax laws that were in effect immediately prior to the enactment. The Company has recognized provisional amounts for all items for which it was able to determine a reasonable estimate. In all cases, the Company will continue to make and refine its calculations as additional analysis is completed. In addition, the Company's estimates may be affected as interpretations of the law through regulations and common practice emerge.

Provisional amounts
Deferred Tax Assets and Liabilities: The Company remeasured its US deferred tax assets and liabilities that give rise to future tax deductions based on the enacted tax rates in effect for the periods in which the deductions are expected to be taken. However, certain aspects of the TCJA could potentially affect the measurement of these balances or give rise to new deferred tax amounts. For example, differences between the provisional and actual calculations of the on-time transition tax could result in the need for changes to the amount of the valuation allowance on the balance that is not utilized to pay such tax. The provisional amount recorded related to the remeasurement of our deferred tax balance was a net benefit of $2,448.
One-Time Transition Tax: The one-time transition tax is based on the total post-1986 earnings and profits on which US tax were previously deferred. The Company recorded a provisional amount as an increase in income tax expense related to the one-time transition tax of $3,706. Because of the complexities of TCJA, the Company has estimated the amount of earnings and profits subject to the tax. Further, the transition tax is based in part on the amount of those earnings held in cash and other specified assets. The Company's estimates may change when it finalizes the calculations required to determine the ultimate amount of the transition tax.
The Company has obtained tax incentives in Switzerland that are effective through March 2019 that result in a rate reduction provided that the Company meets specified criteria. Upon expiration, the Company may renew the arrangement on demand, as long as the applicable law and operating criteria remain in place. The effect of the tax incentive was not material to the Company's income tax provision for the years ended December 29, 2017 or December 30, 2016.
On February 3, 2015, the Company announced that it had been awarded a four-year, $1,700 tax credit from the State of California, subject to certain in-state growth requirements. The Company will evaluate the requirements in each of the eligible years and realize the benefits of the credit if conditions are met. For the year ended December 30, 2016, the Company met requirements to recognize a benefit of $750, or $488 net of federal income tax.
