Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements. The results of operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results that will be realized for the entire fiscal year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and accompanying notes thereto included in the Company’s 2021 Annual Report. The condensed consolidated financial statements for the prior periods include certain reclassifications that were made to conform to the current period presentation. Such reclassifications have no impact on previously reported condensed consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Perimeter Solutions is an emerging growth company (“EGC”) as defined in Section 2(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), as modified by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) and are eligible to take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public
companies that are not EGC. As an EGC, the Company has elected, under Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act, to take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s public float was greater than $700.0 million. As a result, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, the Company will not qualify as an EGC.
Principles of Consolidation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries after elimination of intercompany transactions and balances.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates made by management in connection with the preparation of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the useful lives of long-lived and intangible assets, the allowance for doubtful accounts, the fair value of financial assets and liabilities, stock options, founder advisory fees, contingent earn-out liability and realizability of deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s significant accounting policies are consistent with those discussed in Note 2 - “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements” in its consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2021 Annual Report.
Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Standards
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which will require lessees to recognize a right of use asset and a lease liability on their balance sheet for all leases, including operating leases, with a term of greater than 12 months. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, which adds a transition option permitting entities to apply the provisions of the new standard at its adoption date instead of the earliest comparative period presented in the consolidated financial statements. Under this transition option, comparative reporting would not be required, and the provisions of the standard would be applied prospectively to leases in effect at the date of adoption.
The Company has determined its portfolio of leased assets and is completing its review of all related contracts to determine the impact the adoption will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. Upon adoption, the Company will recognize right of use assets and lease liabilities for certain commitments related to real estate, vehicles, and field equipment that are currently accounted for as operating leases. To track these lease arrangements and facilitate compliance with this ASU, the Company is implementing a third-party lease accounting software solution and is in the process of designing processes and internal controls.
The adoption of this ASU will increase asset and liability balances on the consolidated balance sheets due to the required recognition of right of use assets and corresponding lease liabilities and will result in changes to the Company’s existing accounting policies, business processes, and internal controls. The Company plans to elect the available package of practical expedients provided in the standard and adopt Topic 842 as of January 1, 2022 on its Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2022, using the optional transition method provided by ASU 2018-11 and continues to assess potential effects of the standard.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments and issued subsequent amendments to the initial guidance within ASU 2019-04, ASU 2019-05 and ASU 2019-11. The amendments require an entity to replace the incurred loss impairment methodology in current U.S. GAAP with a methodology that reflects current expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to determine credit loss estimates. The new standard is effective for the Company for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company expects to adopt the new standard on January 1, 2023 and continues to assess potential effects of the standard.
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740), which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in ASC 740. The amendments also improve
consistent application of and simplify U.S. GAAP for other areas of ASC 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company adopted ASU 2019-12 on January 1, 2021 and the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements and disclosures.In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, and in January 2021 issued ASU No. 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope. These ASUs provide temporary optional expedients and exceptions to existing guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to facilitate the market transition from existing reference rates, such as London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) which is being phased out, to alternate reference rates, such as Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”). These standards are elective and are effective upon issuance for all entities through December 31, 2022. The Company continues to evaluate the optional relief guidance provided within these ASUs and the impact of adopting these standards on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and disclosures.
