Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Pure Cycle Corporation (Company or Pure Cycle) and include all adjustments that are of a normal recurring nature and are in the opinion of management, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company as of and for the three and six months ended February 29, 2024 and February 28, 2023. The August 31, 2023 balance sheet was derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements.

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) have been condensed or omitted. It is suggested the accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2023 (2023 Annual Report) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on November 15, 2023. The results of operations for interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the operating results expected for the full fiscal year.

Use Of Estimates

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates are used to account for certain items such as revenue recognition, dollar amount of reimbursable costs and collectability of reimbursable costs, costs of revenue for lot sales, share-based compensation, and the useful lives and recoverability of long-lived assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions due to risks and uncertainties, including uncertainty in the current economic environment.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments — Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which changes the impairment model for most financial assets.  The ASU introduces a new credit loss methodology, Current Expected Credit Losses (“CECL”), which requires earlier recognition of credit losses, while also providing additional transparency about credit risk. Since its original issuance in 2016, the FASB has issued several updates to the original ASU.  The CECL framework utilizes a lifetime expected credit loss measurement objective for the recognition of credit losses for loans, held-to-maturity securities and other receivables at the time the financial asset is originated or acquired. The expected credit losses are adjusted each period for changes in expected lifetime credit losses. The methodology replaces the multiple existing impairment methods, which generally require that a loss be incurred before it is recognized.

On September 1, 2023, the Company adopted the guidance on a modified retrospective basis. The Company has not restated comparative information for the three and six months ended February 28, 2023, and, therefore, the comparative information for the three and six months ended February 28, 2023, is reported under previous guidance and is not comparable to the information presented for the three and six months ended February 29, 2024. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.



The Company has reclassified certain prior year information to conform to the current year presentation.
