Note 1 – Description of Business

The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) is a global hospitality company that develops, owns and operates, manages and licenses upscale and polished casual, high-energy restaurants and lounges and provides turn-key food and beverage (“F&B”) services for hospitality venues including hotels, casinos and other high-end locations. Turn-key F&B services are food and beverage services that can be scaled, customized and implemented by the Company at a particular hospitality venue and customized for the client. The Company’s primary restaurant brands are STK, a multi-unit steakhouse concept that combines a high-energy, social atmosphere with the quality and service of a traditional upscale steakhouse, and Kona Grill, a bar-centric grill concept featuring American favorites, award-winning sushi, and specialty cocktails in a polished casual atmosphere.

On October 4, 2019, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Kona Grill Inc. and its affiliates (“Kona Grill”), which is comprised of 24 domestic restaurants. The Company purchased the assets for a contractual price of $25.0 million plus approximately $1.5 million of consideration paid primarily for the apportionment of rent and utilities. The Company also assumed approximately $7.7 million in current liabilities. Over the next twelve months, the Company intends to integrate Kona Grill by leveraging its corporate infrastructure, bar-business knowledge and unique Vibe Dining program, to elevate the brand experience and drive improved performance.

As of December 31, 2019,  the Company owned, operated, managed or licensed 55 venues including 20 STKs and 24 Kona Grills in major metropolitan cities in North America, Europe and the Middle East and including F&B services provided to four hotels and casinos in the United States and Europe.
