Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation
Management of Local Bounti is responsible for the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this document, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the statements herein.
The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements do not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP for annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the "Annual Financial Statements") as filed with the SEC. In the opinion of the Company, the accompanying Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements contain all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to fairly present its financial position as of March 31, 2023, its results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, and its stockholders' equity for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. Results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2023 or any future period. The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2022 was derived from the Annual Financial Statements but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the Annual Financial Statements.
There have been no material changes or updates to the Company’s significant accounting policies from those described in the Annual Financial Statements except for the updates noted below.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), which amends the guidance on reporting credit losses for assets held at amortized cost and available for sale debt securities. For assets held at amortized cost, the amendment eliminates the probable initial recognition threshold in current U.S. GAAP and, instead, requires an entity to reflect its current estimate of all expected credit losses. The allowance for credit losses is a valuation account that is deducted from the amortized cost of the financial assets to present the net amount expected to be collected. The Company adopted this guidance on January 1, 2023 using the modified retrospective method. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity, which simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liability and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. The standard reduces the number of models used to account for convertible instruments, removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception, and requires the if-converted method for calculation of diluted earnings per share for all convertible instruments. The standard is effective for the Company for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2023. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
