Background and Basis of Presentation Background and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Live Ventures Incorporated, a Nevada corporation, and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Live Ventures” or the “Company”). Live Ventures is a diversified holding company with a strategic focus on value-oriented acquisitions of domestic middle-market companies. The Company has five operating segments: Retail-Entertainment, Retail-Flooring, Flooring Manufacturing, Steel Manufacturing, and Corporate and Other. The Retail-Entertainment segment includes Vintage Stock, Inc. (“Vintage Stock”), which is engaged in the retail sale of new and used movies, music, collectibles, comics, books, games, game systems and components. The Retail-Flooring segment includes Flooring Liquidators, Inc. (“Flooring Liquidators”), which is engaged in the retail sale and installation of floors, carpets, and countertops. The Flooring Manufacturing segment includes Marquis Industries, Inc. (“Marquis”), which is engaged in the manufacture and sale of carpet and the sale of vinyl and wood floor coverings. The Steel Manufacturing Segment includes Precision Industries, Inc. (“Precision Marshall”), which is engaged in the manufacture and sale of alloy and steel plates, ground flat stock and drill rods, The Kinetic Co., Inc. (“Kinetic”), which is engaged in the production of industrial knives and hardened wear products for the tissue and metals industries, and Precision Metal Works, Inc. (“PMW”), which is engaged in metal forming, assembly, and finishing solutions across diverse industries, including appliance, automotive, hardware, electrical, electronic, medical products, and devices. PMW reports on a 13-week quarter, as opposed to the Company's calendar quarter reporting. However, the Company has determined that the difference in reporting periods has no material effect on its reported financial results.
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for audited financial statements. In the opinion of the Company’s management, this interim information includes all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. The results of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2024. The financial information included in these statements should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto as of September 30, 2023 and for the fiscal year then ended included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 22, 2023 (the “2023 Form 10-K”).
