Amendment Description We are filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A to amend and restate in their entirety the following items of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 as originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 13, 2020 (the “Original Form 10-Q”): (i) Item 1 of Part I “Financial Information,” (ii) Item 2 of Part I, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and (iii) Item 6 of Part II, “Exhibits”, and we have also updated the signature page, the certifications of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer in Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1 and 32.2, and our financial statements formatted in Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) in Exhibits 101. No other sections were affected, but for the convenience of the reader, this report on Form 10-Q/A restates in its entirety, as amended, our Original Form 10-Q. This report on Form 10-Q/A is presented as of the filing date of the Original Form 10-Q and does not reflect events occurring after that date or modify or update disclosures in any way other than as required to reflect the restatement described below. Our previously issued consolidated financial statements for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2019 has been reclassified and restated. As described in more detail in Note 1 to our consolidated financial statements, we have determined that our previously reported results for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 erroneously accounted for the impairment charges associated with certain right of use assets which were written down due to the voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by our subsidiary ApplianceSmart, Inc. We have made necessary conforming changes in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” resulting from the correction of this error.
