(unaudited)
1.    General Information
The Company
GameStop Corp. (“GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) offers games, entertainment products and technology through its ecommerce properties and stores.
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. The information contained in these condensed consolidated financial statements refers to continuing operations unless otherwise noted.
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments) which are, in our opinion, necessary for a fair presentation of the information for the periods presented. These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they exclude certain disclosures required under GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and notes are unaudited. The consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the 52 weeks ended January 29, 2022, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 17, 2022 (the “2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K”). Due to the seasonal nature of our business, our results of operations for the nine months ended October 29, 2022 are not indicative of our future results for the 52 weeks ending January 28, 2023. Our fiscal year is composed of the 52 or 53 weeks ending on the Saturday closest to the last day of January. Each of our fiscal years ending January 28, 2023 and January 29, 2022 consist of 52 weeks. All three and nine month periods presented herein contain 13 and 39 weeks, respectively. All references to years, quarters and months relate to fiscal periods rather than calendar periods. Our business, like that of many retailers, is seasonal, with the major portion of the net sales realized during the fourth quarter, which includes the holiday selling season.
Stock Split
On July 6, 2022, our Board of Directors declared a four-for-one stock split of our Class A common stock in the form of a stock dividend (the "Stock Split"). This dividend was distributed on July 21, 2022 to stockholders of record at the close of business on July 18, 2022. There was no net effect on total stockholders' equity, and the par value per share of our Class A stock remains unchanged at $0.001 per share after the Stock Split. All references made to share or per share amounts in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and applicable disclosures have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the effects of the Stock Split.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and disclosed in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes. We regularly evaluate the estimates related to our assets and liabilities, contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. In preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, we have made our best estimates and judgments of certain amounts recognized in the condensed consolidated financial statements, giving due consideration to materiality. Changes in the estimates and assumptions that we have used could have a significant impact on our financial results. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Included below are certain updates related to policies included in Part II, Item 8 "Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements", Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies," in the 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Cash and Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
Our cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates market value, and consist primarily of highly-rated money market funds and investment grade short-term fixed income securities, including U.S. government and agency securities. Such investments with an original maturity of 90 days or less are classified as cash and cash equivalents on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Restricted cash consists primarily of bank deposits that collateralize our obligations to vendors and landlords.

_________________________________________________
(1)     Recognized in prepaid expenses and other current assets on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
(2)    Recognized in other noncurrent assets on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Investments
We generally invest our excess cash in highly-rated money market funds and investment grade short-term fixed income securities, which consist of U.S. government and agency securities. Such investments with an original maturity in excess of 90 days and less than one year are classified as marketable securities on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Our investments are classified as available-for-sale debt securities and reported at fair value. Unrealized holding gains and losses are recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Realized gains and losses upon sale or extinguishment are reported in interest (income) expense and other, net in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Each reporting period, we evaluate whether declines in fair value below carrying value are due to expected credit losses, as well as our ability and intent to hold the investment until a forecasted recovery occurs.
Digital Assets
We account for digital assets in accordance with ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350). Our digital assets are indefinite-lived intangible assets which are initially recorded at cost. Accordingly, if the fair market value at any point during the reporting period is lower than the carrying value, an impairment loss equal to the difference will be recognized in SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. Impairment losses cannot be recovered for any subsequent increase in fair value until the sale or disposal of the asset. Gains on the sale of digital assets, if any, will be recognized based on the fair value upon sale or disposal of the assets in SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
In January 2022, we entered into a partnership with Immutable X Pty Limited (“IMX”) and Digital Worlds NFTs Ltd. ("Digital Worlds") pursuant to which the Company was entitled to receive digital assets in the form of IMX tokens once certain milestones have been achieved. Upon entering the agreement, we recognized the fair value of noncurrent receivables and deferred income of $79.0 million. In February 2022, upon announcement of the agreement, we recognized the fair value of noncurrent receivables and deferred income of $31.7 million. Noncurrent receivables and deferred income are recognized in other noncurrent assets and other long-term liabilities, respectively, on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Once the IMX tokens were received, we recorded the digital asset as an indefinite-lived intangible asset and derecognized the noncurrent receivable. The deferred income is recognized over the term of the agreement. During the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022, we recognized $13.9 million and $41.7 million, respectively, of income in SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. In February 2022, we sold the digital assets related to this transaction and recognized a gain on sale of $6.9 million in SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
During the second quarter of 2022, we launched beta versions of a non-custodial digital asset wallet and a peer-to-peer non-fungible token ("NFT") marketplace that will enable purchases, sales, and trades of NFTs. Revenues earned related to our NFT digital asset wallet and marketplace are recognized in net sales in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. Revenues earned from our digital asset wallet and NFT marketplace were not material to the condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022.
At-the-Market Equity Offering
During the nine months ended October 30, 2021, we sold an aggregate of 34,000,000 shares of our common stock under two at-the market equity offering programs (the "ATM Transactions"). We generated $1.68 billion in aggregate gross proceeds from sales under the ATM Transactions and paid an aggregate of $10.1 million in commissions to the sales agent, among other legal and administrative fees. These commissions and fees were recognized in additional paid-in capital on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

3.    New Accounting Pronouncements
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In March 2022, the SEC staff released Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 121 ("SAB 121"), which requires entities that hold crypto assets on behalf of platform users to recognize a liability to reflect the entity’s obligation to safeguard the crypto assets held for its platform users, whether directly or through an agent or another third party acting on its behalf, along with a corresponding safeguarding asset. Both the liability and corresponding safeguarding asset shall be measured at fair value. SAB 121 also requires disclosure of the nature and amount of crypto assets being safeguarded, how the fair value is determined, an entity's accounting policy for safeguarding liabilities and corresponding safeguarding assets, and may require disclosure of other information about risks and uncertainties arising from the entity's safeguarding activities. For crypto assets that are not maintained on our platform and for which the Company does not maintain a private key or the ability to recover a customer’s private key, these balances are not recorded, as there is no related safeguarding obligation in accordance with SAB 121. This guidance is effective from the first interim period after June 15, 2022 and should be applied retrospectively. We adopted SAB 121 during the second quarter of 2022, with no impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

See Note 9, "Segment Information," for net sales by geographic location.
Performance Obligations
We have arrangements with customers where our performance obligations are satisfied over time, which primarily relate to extended warranties and our Game Informer® magazine. We expect to recognize revenue in future periods for remaining performance obligations we have associated with unredeemed gift cards, trade-in credits, reservation deposits and our PowerUp Rewards loyalty program (collectively, "unredeemed customer liabilities"), extended warranties, and subscriptions to our Game Informer® magazine.
Performance obligations associated with unredeemed customer liabilities are primarily satisfied at the time customers redeem gift cards, trade-in credits, customer deposits or loyalty program points for products that we offer. Unredeemed customer liabilities are generally redeemed within one year of issuance.
We offer extended warranties on certain new and pre-owned products with terms generally ranging from 12 to 24 months, depending on the product. Revenues for extended warranties sold are recognized on a straight-line basis over the life of the contract.
Performance obligations associated with subscriptions to Game Informer® magazine are satisfied when periodic magazines are delivered in print form or made available in digital format.

(3)    Primarily includes foreign currency translation adjustments.
5.    Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Applicable accounting standards require disclosures that categorize assets and liabilities measured at fair value into one of three different levels depending on the observability of the inputs employed in the measurement. Each fair value measurement is reported in one of the following three levels:
Level 1 inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 inputs are observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market-corroborated inputs.
Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability reflecting our assumptions about pricing by market participants.
Assets and Liabilities that are Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
Assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis include our cash equivalents, marketable securities, foreign currency contracts, company-owned life insurance policies with a cash surrender value, and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities.
We measure the fair value of cash equivalents and certain marketable securities based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Other marketable securities were valued either based on recent trades of securities in inactive markets or based on quoted market prices of similar instruments and other significant inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

(Tabular amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

We measure the fair value of our foreign currency contracts, life insurance policies with cash surrender values and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities based on Level 2 inputs using quotations provided by major market news services, such as Bloomberg, and industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices, time value, volatility factors, and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, and other relevant economic measures, all of which are observable in active markets. When appropriate, valuations are adjusted to reflect credit considerations, generally based on available market evidence.
The following table presents our assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

(4)    Recognized in accrued liabilities and other current liabilities on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Assets that are Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
Assets that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis relate primarily to property and equipment, operating lease right-of-use ("ROU") assets and other intangible assets, including digital assets, which are remeasured when the estimated fair value is below its carrying value. When we determine that impairment has occurred, the carrying value of the asset is reduced to its fair value. Fair value of digital assets held are based on Level 2 inputs, as described above, and impairment losses for digital assets cannot be recovered for any subsequent increase in fair value until the sale or disposal of the asset.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, we recognized impairment charges of $33.9 million associated with digital assets in SG&A expenses in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. These charges were recognized in the United States segment.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, we recognized impairment charges of $2.5 million associated with certain store-level intangible assets to reflect their fair values in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. These charges were recognized in our Europe segment. During the nine months ended October 30, 2021, we recognized impairment charges of $0.6 million associated with store-level ROU assets to reflect their fair values in asset impairments in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. These charges were recognized in our United States segment.
The carrying values of our cash, restricted cash, net receivables, accounts payable and current portion of debt approximate their fair values due to their short-term maturities.
As of October 29, 2022, our government-guaranteed low interest French term loans due October 2022 through October 2026 ("French Term Loans") had a carrying value of $38.7 million and a fair value of $32.7 million. The fair values of our French Term Loans were estimated based on a model that discounted future principal and interest payments at interest rates available to us at the end of the period for similar debt of the same maturity, which is a Level 2 input as defined by the fair value hierarchy.

6.    Debt
As of October 29, 2022, October 30, 2021 and January 29, 2022, there was $38.7 million, $46.2 million and $44.6 million of outstanding debt. Total outstanding debt includes $9.9 million, $1.4 million and $4.1 million of short-term debt as of October 29, 2022, October 30, 2021 and January 29, 2022, respectively, which represents the current portion of the French Term Loans.
During 2020, our French subsidiary, Micromania SAS, entered into six separate unsecured term loans for a total of €40.0 million, or $38.7 million, as of October 29, 2022. In the second quarter of 2021, at the request of Micromania SAS, these term loans were extended for five years, with an amortization plan for the principal starting in October 2022. The interest rate is 0.7% for three of the term loans totaling €20.0 million, and 1% for the remaining three term loans totaling €20.0 million. The French government has guaranteed 90% of the term loans pursuant to a state guaranteed loan program instituted in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.
7.    Commitments and Contingencies
Letter of Credit Facilities
We maintain uncommitted letter of credit facilities with certain lenders that provide for the issuance of letters of credit and bank guarantees, at times supported by cash collateral. As of October 29, 2022, we had approximately $13.4 million of outstanding letters of credit and other bank guarantees under facilities outside of our $500 million revolving line of credit which matures in November 2026.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, there were no material changes to our commitments as disclosed in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K except as discussed in Note 6, "Debt."
Legal Proceedings
In the ordinary course of business, we are, from time to time, subject to various legal proceedings, including matters involving wage and hour employee class actions, stockholder actions, and consumer class actions. We may enter into discussions regarding settlement of these and other types of lawsuits, and may enter into settlement agreements, if we believe settlement is in the best interest of our stockholders. We do not believe that any such existing legal proceedings or settlements, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.
8.    Earnings Per Share
Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities include stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested restricted stock units outstanding during the period, using the treasury stock method. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computations of diluted earnings per share if their effect would be anti-dilutive. A net loss from continuing operations causes all potentially dilutive securities to be anti-dilutive. We have certain undistributed stock awards that participate in dividends on a non-forfeitable basis, however, their impact on earnings per share under the two-class method is negligible.

As of October 29, 2022, 71.8 million shares of our Class A common stock were directly registered with our transfer agent.
9.    Segment Information
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.
We identified segments based on a combination of geographic areas and management responsibility. Segment results for the United States include retail operations in 50 states; our ecommerce operations; and Game Informer® magazine. The United States segment also includes general and administrative expenses related to our corporate offices in the United States. Segment results for Canada include retail and ecommerce operations in Canada and segment results for Australia include retail and ecommerce operations in Australia and New Zealand. Segment results for Europe include retail and ecommerce operations in six countries. We measure segment profit using operating earnings, which is defined as income (loss) from operations before intercompany royalty fees, net interest (income) expense and income taxes. Transactions between reportable segments consist primarily of royalties, management fees, intersegment loans and related interest. There were no material intersegment sales during the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022 and October 30, 2021.

10.    Income Taxes
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act (the "CARES Act"), which was enacted on March 27, 2020 in the United States, included measures to assist companies, including temporary changes to income and non-income-based tax laws. As of October 29, 2022, we have a $168.6 million U.S. federal income tax receivable resulting from the carryback of net operating losses allowed pursuant to the CARES Act. Income tax receivable is recognized in prepaid expenses and other current assets on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Our interim tax provision was determined using an estimated annual effective tax rate and adjusted for discrete taxable events and/or adjustments that have occurred during the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022.
We recognized an income tax expense of $2.1 million, or (2.3)%, for the three months ended October 29, 2022 compared to an income tax expense of $1.7 million, or (1.6)%, for the three months ended October 30, 2021. Our effective income tax rate for both periods is primarily due to not recognizing tax benefits on certain current period losses as well as forecasted income taxes due in certain foreign and state jurisdictions in which we operate.
We recognized an income tax expense of $6.8 million, or (1.9)%, for the nine months ended October 29, 2022 compared to an income tax expense of $6.1 million, or (2.7)%, for the nine months ended October 30, 2021. Our effective income tax rate for both periods is primarily due to not recognizing tax benefits on certain current period losses as well as forecasted income taxes due in certain foreign and state jurisdictions in which we operate.

OVERVIEW
GameStop Corp. (“GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation established in 1996, is a leading specialty retailer offering games and entertainment products through its ecommerce properties and thousands of stores.
We operate our business in four geographic segments: United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. Our fiscal year is composed of the 52 or 53 weeks ending on the Saturday closest to the last day of January. The fiscal year ending January 28, 2023 and the fiscal year ended January 29, 2022 each consist of 52 weeks. All three and nine month periods presented herein contain 13 and 39 weeks, respectively. All references to years, quarters and months relate to fiscal periods rather than calendar periods. The discussion and analysis of our results of operations refers to continuing operations unless otherwise noted. Our business, like that of many retailers, is seasonal, with the major portion of the net sales realized during the fourth quarter, which includes the holiday selling season.
BUSINESS PRIORITIES
The initial phase of GameStop's transformation largely occurred over the course of 2021 and the first half of 2022. This period was primarily focused on rebuilding the Company's decaying infrastructure and strengthening GameStop's value proposition, including investing in the Company's enterprise systems, technology capabilities, Store Leaders and store associates, and product catalog and offerings.
GameStop has entered a new phase of its transformation during the back half of 2022. As a result, GameStop is focused on two overarching goals: attaining profitability in the near-future and generating sustainable growth over the long-term.
We are taking the following steps, with a significant emphasis on cost containment:
Ensuring the Company's cost structure is sustainable relative to revenue, including taking steps to optimize our workforce to operate efficiently and nimbly;
Improving margins through operational discipline and increased emphasis on higher margin collectibles and pre-owned product categories;
Prudently increasing the size of our addressable market by growing our product catalog across PC gaming, collectibles, consumer electronics, toys, augmented reality, virtual reality and other categories that represent natural extensions of our business; and
Sustaining a superior customer experience supported by a seamless in-store and ecommerce experience with speedy delivery to our customers.
By executing on these priorities, we can create a compelling experience for customers and be positioned to invest pragmatically in growth initiatives. We can also maintain a strong balance sheet. In connection with our cost reduction efforts, we expect to see favorable impacts to our selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in the quarters to come as we pursue profitability. We believe these efforts are critical to achieve sustained profitability to enable long-term value creation for our stockholders.

In May 2022, we announced the launch of our non-custodial digital asset wallet to allow gamers and others to store, send, receive, and use cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) across decentralized apps. In July 2022, we launched our NFT marketplace to allow gamers, creators, collectors and others to buy, sell and trade NFTs. Our NFT marketplace enables parties to own their digital assets, which are represented and secured on the blockchain, and allows parties to connect to their own digital asset wallets to enable transactions. During fiscal November 2022 we launched the integration of the Immutable X blockchain protocol, which provides access to various web 3 games and NFT gaming assets to our customers.

Net sales decreased $110.2 million or 8.5% and $56.0 million or 1.5%, respectively, for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022 compared to the prior year.
During the three months ended October 29, 2022, net sales in our United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe segments decreased by 8.7%, 0.6%, 3.4%, and 12.9%, respectively, compared to the prior year. During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, net sales in our United States, Australia, and Europe segments decreased by 1.9%, 2.6%, and 2.0% respectively, while net sales in our Canada segment increased by 7.3% compared to the prior year.
The decrease in consolidated net sales for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2022 was primarily attributable to the translation impact of a stronger U.S. dollar, a decline in sales from new software releases, a decline in new gaming hardware sales due to slowing demand on certain previous generation hardware, and supply constraints for the latest generation hardware, despite strong demand.
Gross Profit
During the three months ended October 29, 2022, gross profit decreased $27.0 million, or 8.5%, compared to the prior year. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased to 24.6%, compared to 24.6% in the prior year. The decline in gross profit is primarily attributable to the translation impact of a stronger U.S. dollar, and a decline in net sales, partially offset by a decrease in freight cost.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, gross profit decreased $97.3 million, or 10.0%, compared to the prior year. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales declined to 23.6%, compared to 25.8% in the prior year. The decline in gross profit for the nine months ended October 29, 2022 was primarily attributable to the translation impact of a stronger U.S. dollar, a decline in net sales, higher freight costs driven by supply chain constraints in the first half of the current year, and higher markdown rates on overstock inventory.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
During the three months ended October 29, 2022, SG&A expenses decreased $33.6 million, or 8.0%, compared to the prior year. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales was comparable to the prior year. SG&A expenses decreased primarily due to a reduction in labor-related and consulting service costs driven by our focus on cost structure optimization efforts.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022, SG&A expenses increased $56.9 million, or 4.9% compared to the prior year. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales increased to 33.2% during the nine months ended October 29, 2022 compared to 31.2% in the prior year. SG&A expenses increased primarily due to the impact of digital asset impairment charges incurred during the first quarter of 2022 and labor-related costs incurred during the first half of the year associated with transformation initiatives. These increases are partially offset by the impact of a reduction in labor-related and consulting service costs driven by our focus on cost structure optimization efforts which accelerated during the third quarter of 2022, and the recognition of income related to our partnership with IMX.
Asset Impairments
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022 and October 30, 2021, we recognized $2.5 million and $0.6 million in asset impairment charges related to store-level assets. See Item 1, Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, Note 5, "Fair Value Measurements," for additional information.

Interest (Income) Expense, Net
During the three months ended October 29, 2022, we recognized net interest income of $3.7 million, compared to net interest expense of $0.8 million in the comparable prior year period. The impact is primarily attributable to the amortization of discounts on our available for sale marketable securities and higher returns on invested cash.
During the nine months ended October 29, 2022 and October 30, 2021, we recognized net interest income of $3.3 million and net interest expense of $26.0 million, respectively. The impact is primarily attributable to the repayment of the $73.2 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 6.75% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Senior Notes") and the remaining $216.4 million aggregate principal amount of our then outstanding 10% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Senior Notes") including a $17.8 million make-whole premium, in the first quarter of 2021.
