Note 1 – Nature of Business and Operations

Xponential Fitness, Inc. (the "Company" or “XPO Inc.”), was formed as a Delaware corporation on January 14, 2020. On July 23, 2021, the Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of 10,000 shares of Class A common stock and entered into a series of transactions to implement an internal reorganization. Pursuant to a reorganization into a holding company structure, the Company is a holding company with its principal asset being an ownership interest in Xponential Fitness LLC (“XPO LLC”) through its ownership interest in Xponential Intermediate Holdings, LLC (“XPO Holdings”). Information for any period prior to July 23, 2021 relates to XPO LLC.

XPO LLC was formed on August 11, 2017 as a Delaware limited liability company for the sole purpose of franchising fitness brands in several verticals within the boutique fitness industry. XPO LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of XPO Holdings, which was formed on February 24, 2020, and prior to the IPO, ultimately, H&W Franchise Holdings, LLC (the “Parent”). Prior to the formation of XPO Holdings, the Company was a wholly owned subsidiary of H&W Franchise Intermediate Holdings, LLC (the “Member”).

As of December 31, 2022, the Company’s portfolio of ten brands consists of: “Club Pilates,” a Pilates facility franchisor; “CycleBar,” a premier indoor cycling franchise; “StretchLab,” a fitness concept offering one-on-one assisted stretching services; “Row House,” a rowing concept that provides an effective and efficient workout centered around the sport of rowing; “YogaSix,” a yoga concept that concentrates on connecting to one’s body in a way that is energizing; “AKT,” a dance-based cardio workout concept that combines toning, interval and circuit training; “Pure Barre,” a total body workout concept that uses the ballet barre to perform small isometric movements; “Stride,” a running concept that offers treadmill-based high-intensity interval training and strength-training; “Rumble,” a boxing concept that offers boxing-inspired group fitness classes, which was acquired on March 24, 2021; and “BFT,” a high-intensity interval training concept that combines functional, high-energy strength, cardio, and conditioning-based classes, designed to achieve the unique health goals of its members, which was acquired on October 13, 2021. The Company, through its brands, licenses its proprietary systems to franchisees who in turn operate studios to promote training and instruction programs to their club members within each vertical. In addition to franchised studios, the Company operated 55, 25 and 40 company-owned transition studios as of December 31, 2022, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

In connection with the IPO, XPO Inc. entered into a series of transactions to implement an internal reorganization (the “Reorganization Transactions”). The pre-IPO members of XPO Holdings (the “Pre-IPO LLC Members”) who retained their equity ownership in the form of limited liability company units (the “LLC Units”), immediately following the consummation of the Reorganization Transactions are referred to as “Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members.”

Because XPO Inc. manages and operates the business and controls the strategic decisions and day-to-day operations of XPO LLC through its ownership of XPO Holdings and because it also has a substantial financial interest in XPO LLC through its ownership of XPO Holdings, it consolidates the financial results of XPO LLC and XPO Holdings, and a portion of its net income (loss) is allocated to the noncontrolling interest to reflect the entitlement of the Continuing Pre-IPO LLC Members to a portion of XPO Holdings’ net income or loss.

Immediately following the closing of the IPO, XPO LLC is the predecessor of the Company for financial reporting purposes. As the sole managing member of XPO LLC, the Company operates and controls all of the business and affairs of XPO LLC. The Reorganization Transactions are accounted for as a reorganization of entities under common control. As a result, the consolidated financial statements of the Company recognize the assets and liabilities received in the Reorganization Transactions at their historical carrying amounts, as reflected in the historical consolidated financial statements of XPO LLC. The Company consolidates XPO LLC on its consolidated financial statements and records a noncontrolling interest related to the Class B units held by the Class B stockholders on its consolidated balance sheet and statement of operations.

Basis of presentation – The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).

On October 13, 2021 and March 24, 2021, the Company acquired the rights to franchise the BFT and Rumble concepts, respectively, and has included the results of operations of BFT and Rumble in its consolidated statements of operations from the acquisition dates forward. See Note 3 for additional information.

Principles of consolidation The Company’s consolidated financial statements include the accounts of its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of estimates – The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements. Actual results could differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
