Item 8.01. Other Events
This Form 8-K is being filed to update the audited consolidated financial statements of Restaurant Brands International Inc. (the Company), specifically and primarily related to the recasting of the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014, and related notes thereto, which were included in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, as originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on March 2, 2015 (the Provisional Form 10-K). The impact on the Companys consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income (loss), shareholders equity and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2014, as included in the Provisional Form 10-K, and as retrospectively adjusted for these items, was not material.
When we filed our Provisional Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, the initial acquisition method of accounting for the acquisition of Tim Hortons ULC (f/k/a Tim Hortons, Inc.) (Tim Hortons) was not finalized. The application of the acquisition method of accounting resulted in the measurement and recognition of net assets acquired at a provisional fair value as of December 12, 2014 (the Closing Date).
Since the filing of the Provisional Form 10-K, we have made adjustments to the provisional fair value amounts recognized at the Closing Date, to reflect new information obtained about facts and circumstances that existed as of the Closing Date that, if known, would have affected the measurement of the amounts recognized as of the Closing Date. These adjustments, referred to herein as measurement period adjustments materially shifted the value of certain tangible assets, intangible assets and liabilities. We have applied the measurement period adjustments retrospectively to the consolidated balance sheet reported as of December 31, 2014 and consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income (loss), shareholders equity and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2014, as previously reported in the Provisional Form 10-K. We expect to continue to obtain information to assist in determining the fair value of the net assets acquired as of the Closing Date during the measurement period. Measurement period adjustments that we determine to be material will be applied retrospectively as of the Closing Date.
We have also retrospectively adjusted the consolidated balance sheets reported as of December 31, 2014 and 2013 to reflect our adoption during the quarter ended September 30, 2015 of an accounting standards update under which an entity presents debt issuance costs in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the related debt liability rather than as an asset. Other than this change in presentation, this accounting standards update did not have an impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Additionally, these consolidated financial statements are updated to reflect certain retrospective revisions for changes in reportable segments that have been made to the consolidated financial statements of the Company that were previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission when the Company began reporting comparative results using the revised segment presentation effective with the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2015.
These updated historical consolidated financial statements are filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and have been updated, to include the retrospective measurement period adjustments and new footnote disclosures, the adoption of the accounting standards update on the presentation of debt issuance costs and to reflect certain retrospective revisions for changes in reportable segments. All other information provided in the Form 10-K, unless otherwise provided herein, remains unchanged and this Form 8-K does not modify or update the disclosures in the Form 10-K in any other way. The revisions to the Provisional Form 10-K, as included herein, should be read in conjunction with other information that the Company has filed with the SEC.
