Overview



Through our wholly owned subsidiaries, we own and operate three regional theme
parks and are in the business of acquiring, developing and operating local and
regional theme parks and attractions in the United States. Our wholly owned
subsidiaries are Wild Animal Safari, Inc., a Georgia corporation ("Wild Animal -
Georgia"), Wild Animal, Inc., a Missouri corporation ("Wild Animal - Missouri"),
and Aggieland-Parks, Inc., a Texas corporation ("Aggieland Wild Animal -
Texas"). Wild Animal - Georgia owns and operates the Wild Animal Safari theme
park in Pine Mountain, Georgia (the "Georgia Park"). Wild Animal - Missouri owns
and operates the Wild Animal Safari theme park located in Strafford, Missouri
(the "Missouri Park"). Aggieland Wild Animal - Texas owns and operates the
Aggieland Wild Animal Safari theme park near Bryan/College Station, Texas (the
"Texas Park").



Our Parks are open year round, but experience increased seasonal attendance,
typically beginning in the latter half of March through early September. As a
result, our combined third and fourth quarter net sales have historically ranged
from 68% to 72% of our annual attendance based net sales. For our 2021 fiscal
year, the first full fiscal year including our Texas Park, combined third and
fourth quarter net sales were approximately 60% of our annual attendance based
net sales



17







Through our fiscal year ended October 3, 2021, our annual net sales, adjusted
income before income taxes and net cash provided by operating activities have
improved significantly over the past nine fiscal years. These improvements are
primarily attributable to a combination of increased attendance based revenues
and operating cost controls. Our Georgia Park in particular has benefitted from
several positive factors including strong management, the addition of online
ticket sales in June 2015, growth and positive economic conditions in the
greater Atlanta area, as well as positive guest perceptions of this Park. Strong
results through our 2019 fiscal year and the resulting improvements in our
financial position provided us with the resources to pursue and ultimately close
the acquisition of our Texas Park during our 2020 fiscal year.



The rapid acceleration of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States occurred at
the beginning of our 2020 fiscal year annual high season. Effective April 3,
2020, both our Georgia and Missouri Parks were closed as a result of
shelter-in-place mandates. Additionally, prior to our acquisition of the Texas
Park, its operations were suspended for the majority of April 2020 due to a
shelter-in-place mandate. In compliance with respective state issued guidelines,
our Georgia Park and our Texas Park each reopened on May 1, 2020, and our
Missouri Park reopened on May 4, 2020. Subsequent to reopening, attendance
levels increased significantly at each of our three Parks for the balance of our
2020 fiscal year, which continued throughout our 2021 fiscal year in comparison
to comparable pre-COVID-19 periods. While attendance based net sales remain
higher in comparison to comparable pre-COVID-19 periods, we experienced a
decline in aggregate attendance based net sales and attendance for the last 22
weeks of our 2021 fiscal year and for the first 44 weeks of our 2022 fiscal
year, respectively.



We believe the increased attendance levels, relative to comparable pre-covid-19
periods, each of our Parks has experienced since reopening in early May 2020
reflects the principally outdoor nature of the family-friendly, wild animal
education and entertainment experience provided at each of our Parks. The
experience offered at each of our Parks was particularly attractive during the
height COVID-19 pandemic as potential guests are seeking outdoor entertainment
options. While we have seen many repeat customers since reopening in early May
2020, we also experienced an increase in first time visitors seeking an outdoor
entertainment alternative. We believe this has increased the local and regional
awareness for each of our Parks, which we believe will have positive longer-term
ramifications for our business.



While we have experienced attendance gains and strong cash flow since the
beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there remains the possibility of longer-term
negative impacts to our business, results of operations and cash flows, and
financial condition, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These negative
impacts may include changes in customer behavior and preferences causing
significant volatility or reductions in attendance at one or more of our Parks,
increases in operating expenses, limitations in our ability to recruit and
maintain staffing, limitations on our employees ability to work and travel, and
significant changes in the economic or political conditions in the areas our
Parks are located. Despite our efforts to manage these potential impacts, the
ultimate impact may be material, and may depend on a number of factors beyond
our control, including the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, the
outbreak of new variants of the COVID-19 virus, and actions by governmental
authorities taken to contain its spread and mitigate its public health effects.
There is also the potential for attendance levels at our Parks to moderate or
decline as alternative entertainment venues reopen to full capacity once the
COVID-19 pandemic has run its course or vaccines are widely adopted and proven
effective.



We are committed to leveraging the strong operating model we have established at
our Georgia Park, with a focus on increasing attendance, as well as increasing
the average revenue generated per guest visit via concession and gift shop
revenues. Among our highest priorities over the next several years is continuing
the integration of our Texas Park. As our Texas Park first opened to the public
in May 2019, we believe there remains tremendous potential to increase
attendance by increasing the local and regional awareness of this facility via
advertising and promotion. We are pleased with the expanded attendance at our
Missouri Park since it reopened in May 2020 and plan on leveraging the increased
exposure of this facility to continue to build on this recent success.



During our 2021 fiscal year, we engaged an experienced amusement industry
consulting firm to assist us in developing a master plan for our Georgia Park.
In aggregate, our initial 2022 fiscal year capital investment plan involved
nearly $3.0 million of improvements across all three of our Parks. Our 2022
fiscal year capital plan included the first major project within our master
plan, an impressive giraffe exhibit at our Georgia Park. However, due to several
issues, we currently project this project will not be completed until at least
the spring of 2023. Our current projections indicate our fiscal 2022 capital
spending will now total approximately $1.75 million.



Our long-term business plan includes expansion via the acquisition of additional
local or regional theme parks and attractions, if attractive opportunities
arise. We believe acquisitions, if any, should not unnecessarily encumber the
Company with additional debt that cannot be justified by current operations. We
may also pursue contract management opportunities for themed attractions owned
by third parties. By using a combination of equity, debt and other financing
options, we intend to carefully monitor stockholder value in conjunction with
the pursuit of growth.



18







Strong growth in our annual operating cash flow over the past nine fiscal years
has provided us with incremental cash flow, and provided us with the financial
strength to complete the acquisition of our Texas Park and to significantly
increase our planned capital investment spending during our 2022 fiscal year.
However, our current size and operating model leave us little room for error.
Any future capital raised by us is likely to result in dilution to existing
stockholders. It is possible that cash generated by, or available to, us may not
be sufficient to fund our capital and liquidity needs for the near-term.



We manage our operations on an individual location basis. Discrete financial
information is maintained for each Park and provided to our corporate management
for review and as a basis for decision-making. The primary performance measures
used to allocate resources are Park earnings before interest and tax expense,
and free cash flow. We use this measure of operating profit to gauge segment
performance because we believe this measure is the most indicative of
performance trends and the overall earnings potential of each reportable
segment.

Total Net Sales



Our total net sales for the three month period ended July 3, 2022 were $3.64
million, a decrease of $229,775, compared to the three month period ended July
4, 2021. Our Parks' combined attendance based net sales decreased by $204,622 or
5.4%, and animal sales decreased by $25,153.



Our Georgia Park's attendance based net sales decreased by $204,484 or 7.5%, to
$2.51 million, while animal sales decreased by $2,515. Our Missouri Park's
attendance based net sales decreased by $100,596 or 16.3%, to $517,589, while
animal sales increased by $19,600. Our Texas Park's attendance based net sales
increased by $100,458 or 20.6%, to $589,289, while animal sales decreased by
$42,238.



For the three month period ended July 3, 2022, paid attendance at our Georgia
and Missouri Parks decreased by approximately 12.4% and 26.0%, respectively,
while attendance at our Texas Park increased 31.9%. We believe our attendance
levels for the three month period ended July 3, 2022 were unfavorably impacted
by various factors including the full reopening of other family entertainment
venues, general economic conditions impacting family budgets, and hotter than
normal weather conditions, partially offset by higher levels of group
attendance.



Segment Operating Margin



Our consolidated segment income from operations was $1.31 million for the three
month period ended July 3, 2022, a decrease of $533,191, compared to $1.85
million for the three month period ended July 4, 2021. Our Georgia Park
generated segment operating income of $1.29 million, a decrease of $434,148,
primarily attributable to lower attendance based net sales, as well as higher
compensation and benefits, advertising, insurance and general operating
expenses. Our Missouri Park generated segment operating income of $76,589, a
decrease of $81,830, primarily attributable to lower attendance based net sales,
as well as higher advertising, compensation and benefits, and general operating
expenses, partially offset by higher animal sales and a gain on asset sales. Our
Texas Park generated a segment operating loss of $48,695, an increase of
$17,213, primarily attributable to lower animal sales, and higher advertising
and general operating expenses, partially offset by higher attendance based net
sales and a loss on animal dispositions during the three months ended July
4,
2021.

Corporate Expenses


Business spending increased by $14,901 at $193,461 during the three-month period ended July 3, 2022mainly due to higher professional fees.


Legal Settlement Expense



Effective August 5, 2022, we agreed to pay $100,000 to two children of a former
officer of the Company to settle a complaint alleging we were obligated to
purchase life insurance of at least $540,000 for said officer. The Company
recorded the cost of this settlement during the three month period ended July 3,
2022 and anticipates full payment by October 2, 2022. For additional
information, see "NOTE 9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES" of the Notes to the
Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) included in this Quarterly Report.



Other Income, Net


Other net income increased by $5,034at $22,030mainly attributable to higher royalty income on mining rights for our texas park.

Gain on extinguishment of debt

On May 25, 2021, we received notification the SBA approved our Wild Animal -
Missouri Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loan forgiveness application,
resulting in a gain on extinguishment of debt totaling $64,617 for the three
month period ended July 4, 2021.



Interest Expense


Interest expense for the three month period ended July 3, 2022 decreased by
$26,154, to $65,804, primarily as a result of the lower interest rate associated
with the June 2021 refinancing of our Synovus Bank ("Synovus") term loan and
scheduled principal payments on our term loans over the trailing 12 month
period, as well as the retirement of the Aggieland Seller Note in June 2021,
partially offset by imputed interest on a right of use asset.



Income Taxes



For the three month period ended July 3, 2022, we reported pre-tax income of
$1.08 million. For the fiscal year ending October 2, 2022 we expect to generate
pre-tax income and to record a tax provision at a blended effective federal and
state income tax rate of approximately 29.4%. Based on a year-to-date blend of
federal and State of Georgia pre-tax income, we recorded an income tax provision
of $284,600 for the three month period ended July 3, 2022.



Net earnings and earnings per share



For the three month period ended July 3, 2022, we reported net income of
$718,712 or $0.01 per basic share and per fully diluted share, compared to a net
income of $1.27 million or $0.02 per basic share and per fully diluted share,
for the three month period ended July 4, 2021, resulting in a decrease of
$548,121. This decrease in our net income is attributable to a $434,148 decrease
in segment income for our Georgia Park, a $81,830 decrease in the segment income
for our Missouri Park, a $17,213 increase in the segment loss for our Texas
Park, a $14,901 increase in Corporate spending, a legal settlement expense of
$100,000, and a $64,617 gain on extinguishment of debt in the three month period
ended July 4, 2021, partially offset by an increase of $5,034 in other income, a
$26,154 decrease in interest expense, as well as a $133,400 decrease in our
income tax provision.

Results of operations for the nine-month period ended July 3, 2022 compared to the nine-month period ended July 4, 2021



Our 2022 fiscal year will be comprised of 52-weeks, compared to our 2021 fiscal
year which was comprised of 53-weeks. The extra week in our 2021 fiscal year
occurred during our first fiscal quarter. As such, attendance based sales
analyses for the nine months ended July 3, 2022 will include comparable 39-week
sales comparisons, in addition to reported sales comparisons.

decreased by $554,937 or 9.7%, our Missouri Park's attendance based net sales
decreased by $108,197 or 9.6%, while our Texas Park's attendance based net sales
increased by $54,413 or 3.8%.



For the nine month period ended July 3, 2022, paid attendance at our Georgia and
Missouri Parks decreased by approximately 20.3% and 22.6%, respectively, while
paid attendance at our Texas Park increased 6.9%. On a comparable 39-week basis,
paid attendance at our Georgia and Missouri Parks decreased by approximately
18.1% and 20.7%, respectively, while paid attendance at our Texas Park increased
9.6%. We believe our attendance levels for the nine month period ended July 3,
2022 were unfavorably impacted by various factors including the full reopening
of other family entertainment venues, general economic conditions impacting
family budgets, and weather conditions during the late spring and early summer,
partially offset by higher levels of group attendance.



Segment Operating Margin



Our consolidated segment income from operations was $1.36 million for the nine
month period ended July 3, 2022, a decrease of $2.01 million, compared to
consolidated segment income from operations of $3.37 million for the nine month
period ended July 4, 2021. Our Georgia Park generated segment operating income
of $2.07 million, a decrease of $1.33 million, primarily attributable to lower
attendance based net sales, as well as higher compensation and benefits,
advertising, insurance and general operating expenses. Our Missouri Park
generated a segment operating loss of $498,443, an increase of $496,675,
primarily attributable to higher special event spending and lower attendance
based net sales, as well as higher compensation and advertising expenses,
partially offset by higher animal sales and gains on asset sales. Our Texas Park
generated a segment operating loss of $210,087, an increase of $183,139,
primarily attributable lower animal sales, as well as higher advertising,
general operating, and depreciation expenses, and higher cost of sales,
partially offset higher attendance based sales and losses on animal dispositions
in the nine months ended July 4, 2021.

Corporate Expenses


Business spending increased by $56,645 at $734,493 during the nine-month period ended July 3, 2022mainly due to higher compensation, professional fees, travel and insurance costs.


Legal Settlement Expense



Effective August 5, 2022, we agreed to pay $100,000 to two children of a former
officer of the Company to settle a complaint alleging we were obligated to
purchase life insurance of at least $540,000 for said officer. The Company
recorded the cost of this settlement during the nine month period ended July 3,
2022 and anticipates full payment by October 2, 2022. For additional
information, see "NOTE 9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES" of the Notes to the
Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) included in this Quarterly Report.



Other Income, Net


Other net income increased by $24,007at $68,322mainly attributable to higher royalty income on mining rights for our texas park.

Gain on extinguishment of debt

In the nine months ended July 4, 2021we have received notification that the SBA has approved our Wildlife Paycheck Protection Program – Georgia and Wild Animals – Missouri (“PPP”) loan forgiveness requests, resulting in a gain on l extinguishment of debt totaling $189,988.


Interest Expense


Interest expense for the nine month period ended July 3, 2022 decreased by
$65,103, to $202,475, primarily as a result of the lower interest rate
associated with the June 2021 refinancing of our Synovus term loan and scheduled
principal payments on our term loans over the trailing 12 month period, as well
as the retirement of the Aggieland Seller Note in June 2021, partially offset by
imputed interest on a right of use asset.



Income Taxes


For the nine month period ended July 3, 2022, we reported a pre-tax income of
$491,582. For the fiscal year ending October 2, 2022 we expect to generate
pre-tax income and to record a tax provision at a blended effective federal and
state income tax rate of approximately 29.4%. Based on a year-to-date blend of
federal and State of Georgia pre-tax income, we recorded an income tax provision
of $172,200 for the nine month period ended July 3, 2022.



Net earnings and earnings per share



For the nine month period ended July 3, 2022, we reported a net income of
$245,082 or $0.00 per basic share and per fully diluted share, compared to a net
income of $2.03 million or $0.03 per basic share and per fully diluted share,
for the nine month period ended July 4, 2021, resulting in a decrease of $1.79
million. The decrease in our net income is attributable to a $1.33 million
decrease in segment income for our Georgia Park, a $496,675 increase in the
segment loss for our Missouri Park, a $183,139 increase in the segment loss for
our Texas Park, a $56,645 increase in Corporate spending, a legal settlement
expense of $100,000, and a $189,988 gain on extinguishment of debt in the nine
month period ended July 4, 2021, partially offset by an increase of $24,007 in
other income, a $65,103 decrease in interest expense, as well as a $482,200 net
decrease in our income tax provision.



Financial position, liquidity and capital resources

Financial situation and liquidity



Our primary sources of liquidity are cash generated by operations and borrowings
under our loan agreements. Historically, our slow season starts after Labor Day
in September and runs until Spring Break, which typically begins toward the
middle to end of March. The first and second quarters of our fiscal year have
historically generated negative cash flow, requiring us to use cash generated
from prior fiscal years, as well as borrowing on a seasonal basis, to fund
operations and prepare our Parks for the busy season during the third and fourth
quarters of our fiscal year. As a result of our improved cash position, during
our 2021 fiscal year we did not utilize any seasonal borrowing, nor do we
anticipate using any seasonal borrowing during our 2022 fiscal year.

On June 18, 2021, we entered a new $1.95 million, seven-year term loan (the
"2021 Term Loan") with Synovus, at an annual interest rate of 3.75%. The 2021
Term Loan replaced our 2018 borrowing facility with Synovus, which included a
term loan in the original principal amount of $1.60 million at 5.0% per annum
and a $350,000 line of credit at 4.75% per annum. After paying off the balance
outstanding on the 2018 Term Loan, the net additional borrowings on the 2021
Term Loan were $930,222 and the line of credit was not renewed. Combined with
available cash, we used the incremental proceeds from the 2021 Term Loan to
paydown $1.0 million of the 2020 Term Loan used to finance our Texas Park
acquisition, which has a 5.0% annual interest rate. Overall, we estimate this
refinancing will generate approximately $24,375 in annual interest savings.



Our working capital was $4.38 million as of July 3, 2022, compared to $5.70
million as of October 3, 2021. This decrease in working capital primarily
relates to cash used for capital investments and financing activities, partially
offset by cash provided by operating activities, during the nine month period
ended July 3, 2022.


Total loan debt, including current maturities, as of July 3, 2022 was $5.45
million compared to $5.66 million as of October 3, 2021. The decrease in total
loan debt during the nine month period ended July 3, 2022 is attributable to
scheduled term loan payments, partially offset by a financing lease obligation.



As of July 3, 2022, we had equity of $14.87 million and total loan debt of $5.45
million, resulting in a debt to equity ratio of 0.37 to 1.0 compared to 0.39 to
1.0 as of October 3, 2021.



Operating Activities



Net cash provided by operating activities was $792,656 for the nine month period
ended July 3, 2022, compared $2.34 million for the nine month period ended July
4, 2021, resulting in a net decrease of $1.55 million, primarily due to lower
net income.



Investing Activities


Net cash used in investing activities was $1.46 million for the nine month
period ended July 3, 2022, compared to $860,473 for the nine month period ended
July 4, 2021. Our capital spending for the nine month period ended July 3, 2022
was $1.49 million, compared to $887,473 for the nine month period ended July 4,
2021.



Financing Activities



Net cash used in financing activities was $687,296 for the nine month period
ended July 3, 2022, compared to $1.03 million for the nine month period ended
July 4, 2021, resulting in an increase of $342,174.



In the nine months ended July 3, 2022scheduled payments on our combined term loans totaled $526,433 and we did $160,863 payments on a finance lease obligation.



In June 2021, we entered into the 2021 Term Loan for $1.95 million, using those
proceeds to pay off the $930,222 outstanding balance of our 2018 Term Loan, as
well as prepay $1.00 million against our 2020 Term Loan. In addition, on June
29, 2021, we paid off the $750,000. Aggieland Safari Seller Note. For the nine
months ended July 4, 2021, scheduled payments against our combined term loans
totaled $277,956.



Subsequent Events



On August 5, 2022, we agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a Complaint filed against
us by two children of a former officer of the Company, seeking payment and
damages related to an alleged Employment Agreement obligation. For more
information regarding this matter, see "NOTE 9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES"
herein.


Off-balance sheet arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future impact on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.
