Note 2. Basis of Presentation


The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Fathom Digital Manufacturing Corporation and all majority-owned subsidiaries and entities in which a controlling interest is maintained. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.


The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applicable to interim reports. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in our 2021 Form 10-K. The Company's annual reporting period is the calendar year.


In the Company’s opinion, the unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of adjustments of a normal, recurring nature, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. Actual results may differ from those estimates, judgments and assumptions. Amounts in the prior years' unaudited consolidated financial statements are reclassified whenever necessary to conform to the current year's presentation. The reclassifications had no impact on our results of operations, financial position, or cash flows for the Predecessor Period as defined below.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards


In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases ("Topic 842") Section A - Leases: Amendments to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC"). The standard requires lessees to recognize the assets and liabilities arising from leases on the balance sheet and retains a distinction between finance leases and operating leases. The classification criteria for distinguishing between finance leases and operating leases are substantially similar to the classification criteria for distinguishing between capital leases and operating leases in the previous lease guidance. The Company adopted this standard and related amendments in the first quarter of 2022, using the modified retrospective approach. Using the modified retrospective approach, the Company determined an incremental borrowing rate at the date of adoption based on the total lease term and total minimum rental payments.


The modified retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption with a cumulative adjustment to retained earnings. The Company elected the package of practical expedients, which permits the Company to not reassess (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) any initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases as of the effective date. The Company also elected the practical expedient to use hindsight when determining the lease term and the practical expedient to not allocate lease considerations between lease and non-lease components for real estate leases. As such, real estate lease considerations are treated as a single lease-component and accounted for accordingly. The Company excludes leases with an initial term of 12 months or less from the application of Topic 842.


Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of $3,122 and $8,195 of current lease liabilities and long-term lease liabilities, respectively, and $11,986 in corresponding right-of-use lease assets. The difference between the approximate value of the right-of-use lease assets and lease liabilities is attributable to future rent escalations. The cumulative change in the beginning accumulated deficit was $82 due to the adoption of Topic 842. There was no material impact on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations or consolidated statement of cash flows. The Company’s comparative periods continue to be presented and disclosed in accordance with previous lease guidance.
