Principles of Consolidation
The unaudited condensed financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries over which the Company exercises control. The Company records a non-controlling interest within stockholders’ equity for the portion of the entity’s equity attributed to the consolidated entities that are not wholly owned. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These reclassifications have no material effect on the reported financial results.
Certain amounts in the prior period have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the Company’s 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 condensed consolidated financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Significant estimates made in connection with the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the estimated reserve for doubtful accounts, the estimated reserve for excess and obsolete inventory, fair values of goodwill, other intangibles and long-lived assets in connection with an acquisition, fair values in connection with the analysis of goodwill, other intangibles and long-lived assets for impairment, valuation allowance against deferred tax assets, and estimated useful lives for intangible assets and property and equipment.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04 - Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), codified as ASC 848 (“ASC 848”). The purpose of ASC 848 is to provide optional guidance to ease the potential effects on financial reporting of the market-wide migration away from Interbank Offered Rates to alternative reference rates. ASC 848 applies only to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference a reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. Effective December 31, 2021, the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) replaced the USD London Interbank-Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) for most financial benchmarking. The guidance may be applied upon issuance of ASC 848 through December 31, 2022. The Company has adopted this new accounting standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures; however, adoption of this ASU had no material impact on the Company's financial statements.
